Has Ileana secretly tied the knot with her boyfriend as suggested by her Instagram post? Actress answers.
Despite Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma never admitting to their relationship nor revealing their marriage plans, the whole world expected an announcement and were not caught off-guard when they finally tweeted the news.
However, that was not the case with Ileana D’Cruz and her boyfriend (or husband) Andrew Kneebone.
In December last year, the actress shared a blurry picture of herself with a Christmas tree on Instagram, but the post giving photo credit to her ‘hubby’ set tongues wagging.
The actress reacted to the post in a recent interview to a tabloid and the answer is maybe clearer or maybe not. “It’s exactly what you see. What’s great about the social media is that I can let people in to an extent but I don’t like talking about my past… How the relationship started and where… in interviews. It’s too personal. I won’t hide it and I won’t deny it. Everything is out there for everyone to see, don’t ask me too many questions about it. I’ll tell you what I want to tell you. Period,” Ileana told Mumbai Mirror.
When probed further, she laughed and said, "Like I said, everything is out there, I don’t need to answer your question.”
Andrew is an Australian photographer and while the topic of nepotism in Bollywood is always debated, Ileana has never thought about him joining the industry.
“I don’t know, I’ve never asked him. That would be a really big move but I also know that he is someone who would love to do something like that. He’s taken some really cool pictures of Varun (Dhawan) and Alia (Bhatt) on a flight, Ranveer (Singh) and Salman (Khan) during a show I did with them. He’s great with photos but him moving here and making a career in Bollywood is something only Andrew can answer. I think he’ll totally be up for it!” she said.
Not just the headline-grabbing Instagram post, Ileana’s profile is filled with numerous lovey-dovey moments with Andrew. The man, who is good with pictures is equally effective with his words, praising his love's work and even being honest with her during tough times.
“He does (watch her films) and is amazingly honest. He spoils me with his compliments. He’s like, “You’re such an amazing actor, you’re really good!” and I’m like, 'You don’t have to say that just because you love me.' But I think he really means it and it means a lot to me because I know he is someone who will never lie even to me. Sometimes, I’m really upset if a film hasn’t done well and he’ll watch it and tell me what he felt was wrong. It matters to me what he thinks,” Ileana shared.
Andrew will surely be looking forward to her next, ‘Raid’ opposite Ajay Devgn, which will hit the theatres on 16 March.
As was only expected, the teaser has hit nearly 3 million views in record time.
Riding on the success of the first song from Oru Adaar Love which has gone viral, the filmmakers have now released the teaser of the film. Even though Priya Prakash Varrier supposedly had only a small role in the film, Omar Lulu decided to give her one of the lead roles seeing her performance and the impact it has had on the audience.
The teaser of the film features Priya and Roshan Abdul, the young man who was seen flirting with her in the Manikya Malaraya Poovi song which became unimaginably viral. In the teaser, Priya and Roshan are sitting in a classroom. Continuing with their exchange of glances and gestures, she "shoots" him a kiss and he pretends to fall dead.
The teaser has crossed 2.8 million views on YouTube in less than a day, only adding to the fervour around Priya Prakash Varrier.
The 18-year-old is a first year B.Com student at Vimala College, Thrissur while Roshan studies in ICA college. Roshan was one of the finalists in the Mazhavil Manorama D4 Dance show. This is the first film for both of them.
Omar Lulu's last film was Chunkzz, an adult comedy. Though the film was panned by critics, it went on to do well at the box-office. Oru Adaar Love is supposedly a campus love story. The film is said to have five heroes and five heroines although that could change, given the popularity of the Priya-Roshan pair. The shooting of the film has been temporarily stopped and is expected to resume with a reworked script.
A Hyderabad-based youth group claimed that it hurt Muslim sentiment because it is about Prophet Muhammad and his wife.
Priya Prakash Varrier, basking in the glory of her newfound popularity, has been slammed with a complaint for the song Manikya Malaraya Poovi in Hyderabad by a youth group of Farooq Nagar.
It was her appearance in this song that made her instantly famous, including 6,06,000 followers within a day on instagram.
She is the third celebrity to gain such a mammoth number of followers in one day, with only American model -TV personality Kylie Jenner and legendary footballer Cristiano Ronaldo ahead of her.
The youth group from Hyderabad that filed the complaint against the song, claimed that it hurt Muslim sentiment because it is about Prophet Muhammad and his wife
However, they have submitted only a written complaint and no FIR has been filed against anyone yet.
"I tried to sing the song and when I checked the translation, it was about Prophet Mohammad. A girl and boy are romancing but linking background with religious sentiments," said complainant Muqueet Khan.
"I will not take back my complaint. I have checked on Youtube and then filed my complaint," he added.
The director of the film 'Omar Lulu' clarified that the lyrics are not meant to hurt anybody's sentiments.
"There is nothing against Islam or Muslims. It is a very old love song sung by all communities," he said.
The song from the upcoming film 'Oru Adaar Love' has catapulted Priya to overnight celebritydom
After Sheril G Kadavan became an Internet sensation thanks to the viral Jimmiki Kammal video, another young woman has become an overnight celebrity. And once again, the song has been set to music by Shaan Rahman who gave us the catchy Jimmiki Kammal. The original composer is Thalassery K Refeeque while Shaan has 'revisted' the music. Adding to the coincidence, it is Vineeth Sreenivasan, one of the singers of Jimmiki Kammal, who has sung this number, too!
The song Manikya Malaraya Poovi, is a melody from the upcoming Omar Lulu film Oru Adaar Love. Omar Lulu's last film was Chunkzz, an adult comedy that was panned by critics but did well at the box-office.
The song is set in a school campus and shows people in the audience reacting to the singer and each other. Actor Priya Prakash Varrier is among the students who feature in the song and she can be seen gesturing to a friend to occupy the place next to her. As the two girls chat, a young boy catches her eye and the two of them flirt with each other through their expressions.
This segment has made the song viral, with Priya's expressions capturing the hearts of several pining Romeos. Catapulting the young woman to instant fame, the video has been viewed over 45 lakh times on YouTube, with several users commenting that they don't understand Malayalam but had come only to see her.
Needless to say, there are plenty of memes and fan pages, too!
Catch the Mr Bean version:
Priya's Dubsmash video in which she's doing the 'rosemilk' scene from Vijay's Mersal has delighted her fans from Tamil Nadu.

Goodbye PV Sindhu, won't support poor countries like India: Hacked Yonex account post
All the fuss was soon cleared as Yonex later deleted the post and announced that their account was hacked.
Japanese sports merchandise group Yonex caused a stir on Saturday after they posted a cryptic post related to Indian badminton star PV Sindhu. They stated that they would no longer continue to support poor countries like India and added that would turn their focus to Japan to stay financially sound.
“Yonex says goodbye to Sindhu. Players from poor countries like India will no longer be sponsored by Yonex as we change our focus towards the Japanese youth,” the caption read with a picture of the Indian shuttler.
However, all the fuss was soon cleared as Yonex later deleted the post and announced that their account was hacked. The management released a statement of apology to their followers.
“To all Yonex fans, we would like to sincerely apologize for the inappropriate posts that have been posted on our Instagram account (yonex_com) today without our knowledge. Our Instagram account was hacked, but the issue has since been resolved and we have fortified our security measures to ensure that it doesn’t happen again. Yours sincerely, Team Yonex,” the new post read.
Sindhu also stood in support of her sponsors and clarified that she would continue to be associated with the sports organisation.
“I’m sorry that YONEX Instagram was hacked by somebody. But YONEX team apologized this issue to me. Of course, I accepted their apology for this incident and look forward to continued support of Yonex in 2018. I’m going to stay with Yonex without any problem,” she wrote.
Apart from the Olympic silver-medallist, players like Saina Nehwal and Leander Paes are also sponsored by the Japanese group.
The all-new 2018 Maruti Suzuki Swift, which is perhaps the year's most awaited car is finally here. Bookings are open and the car will officially be launched at the Delhi Auto Expo next month Feb 7.
This is the third coming of the Swift, which has been one of Maruti Suzuki's most popular offerings -- clocking a whopping 17 lakh units in sales till date. The first generation rolled out in India in 2005, and over a decade later India's largest carmaker has once again reincarnated the old soul - which seems to be in no hurry to achieve 'nirvana', any time soon. In fact, in its latest avatar, it feels more youthful and more peppy than ever before.
The car will be available in 12 variants and for the first time, Maruti will offer automatic transmission on the hatchback. The waiting period is said to be ranging from 6 weeks to 8 weeks depending on the variants. Earlier, Mr RS Kali, senior executive director of sales and marketing said that the all-new Swift will sell more than 15,000 units per month, which is more than what the previous generation Swift used to sell.
The all-new Swift comes with a host of changes to attract the buyers. It is the third generation Swift and is built on the lightweight HEARTECT platform. The vehicle is available with unique features like LED projector headlamps with LED DRLs that adds a very sharp and premium look to the vehicle. The Swift has also become wider and has 20mm longer wheelbase than the current version that makes it roomier.
New Maruti Swift: 5 things you need to know
1. It’s more spacious
Based on the Heartect platform, the new Swift is 40mm wider and boasts a 20mm longer wheelbase, along with a claimed 24mm more headroom. The result is a more spacious cabin. Adding to the practicality is the boot which – at 265 litres – is a good 58 litres larger than that of its predecessor. In terms of exterior dimensions, the new Swift is 3,840mm in length, 1,735mm in width and 1,530mm in height with a wheelbase of 2,450mm and ground clearance of 163mm.
2. The engines are carried over as is
While the new Swift looks distinctly different, things are more or less the same in the engine bay. The car will continue to be powered by the same 1.2-litre, 83hp/113Nm petrol engine and 1.3-litre 75hp/190Nm diesel engine as the outgoing Swift.
3. Automatic gearboxes are finally available…and on both engines
In keeping with the growing popularity of automatic gearboxes, the new Swift will get Automated Manual Transmission (AMT) variants for both the petrol and diesel engines. The AMT gearboxes are five-speed units, like the manual gearboxes they are based on. There is a catch, however – the automatic versions are not available in the fully loaded Z+ trim and are offered in mid-spec VXi/VDi and ZXi/ZDi form, only.
4. It is feature-and-equipment-loaded
The new Swift will come generously equipped with features and equipment, especially in the top-spec variant – SmartPlay infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, projector headlamps with LED DRLs, two-tonne alloy wheels, navigation, reverse camera, push-button start and automatic headlamps. In terms of safety, two airbags and ABS will be standard, across the range.
5. Bookings are now open
Maruti has not officially launched the car yet, so we don’t have a definitive price; Maruti has, however, started accepted bookings for the new Swift with an initial payment of Rs. 11,000. The Swift is bound to be very popular – we wouldn’t be surprised if the wait time for deliveries stretches into months.

Co-founder, chairman and CEO of Facebook’s personal net worth dropped by whopping 4.4 per cent.
It seems that Mark Zuckerberg’s decision to change the way Facebook operates people’s news feeds did not go down to well for him. The move has cost him $3.3bn, with his personal net worth dropping by 4.4 per cent, it is believed.
After Facebook went public with the news feed change on Thursday, the website’s share value dropped by nearly four per cent before US markets opened on Friday.
By close of business on Friday Facebook shares were trading at $179.37, down more than 4.4 per cent on Thursday’s price of $187.77.
Forbes has calculated that for Mr Zuckerberg, the co-founder, chairman and CEO of Facebook, this translated into a personal hit of 3.3bn – a 4.4 per cent fall in his personal fortune.
Zuckerberg, 33, who started Facebook in 2004 aged 19, still owns a 17 per stake in the company, which went public in 2012.
He explained his reasons for changing the news feed algorithm in a Facebook post on Thursday, saying he wanted the website to prioritise posts from friends and family over businesses and brands.

While Ryan is the face of the channel, all the production and editing of his videos is done by his parents while he is at school.
