From Javed Akhtar reacting to Kangana Ranaut praising him to Nawazuddin Siddiqui’s brother levelling fresh allegations; here are the top newsmakers of the day.
Days after Kangana Ranaut praised Javed Akhtar for his befitting reply in Pakistan regarding the 26/11 terror attacks, the lyricist was asked about the same in a recent interview. However, Akhtar decided not to talk about it and rather asked the anchor to ‘move forward’. “I don’t consider Kangana important so how can she make an important remark. Forget about her. Chaliye aage (Let’s move forward),” Akhtar told NDTV.
