Another act of apathy on behalf of the doctors came to light in the Unnao district of Uttar Pradesh where the doctors denied treatment to a pregnant and she delivered a baby beside the hospital gate. A video on this issue has become viral questioning the infrastructure available in Government hospitals and the indifferent attitude of doctors towards the poor patients. So far no response has been received from the hospital authorities on this issue.

Unnao district was in news recently when 40 people were tested HIV positive due to the usage of an infected syringe by a local doctor in the town. The current issue highlights the carelessness in the medical field in the town. Unnao district is a transit point for truck drivers and many of them are said to be dislodging themselves at this place.

Queen Kangana Ranaut has been working hard on the sets of her new film, Manikarnika. The movie is directed by Krrish, Telugu young director who National Award winning film, Kanche and also historical fiction, Gautamiputra Satakarni last year. He got this offer after successfully completing the movie Gautamiputra Satakarni in less budget and in planned number of days.

Baahubali writer, Vijayendra Prasad wrote the screenplay of the film and it is said to be one of his dreams to write a movie on the great warrior queen.

Kangana Ranaut completed almost 90% of her work for the film. Soon, the movie theatrical trailer and songs will be released to kick start the promotions. The movie is initially planned for an April release but it could release in the month of June, due to few delays in the shoot.

Karni Sena took the baton of promoting Padmaavat by protesting the release of the movie. They disrupted the shoot, slapped Sanjay Leela Bhanshali and even warned the makers to not release. They made the Governments of Gujarat, Rajasthan, Haryana, Bihar ban the movie from release.

Went to Supreme Court to stay the movie release and once, it released they burnt the buses and free screens in huge malls. After all that, they recently agreed their mistake and announced that they mistook the intentions of the makers. Now, they have asked Governments of various states to show the film to everyone.

Sarwa Brahmin Mahasabha decided to do the same for Manikarnika. Till today, they haven’t raised any objections, but now they are saying the makers are planning to destroy the image of great Queen by showing her having a relationship with a British officer. They are demanding that the movie should be shown to them first and then only it should release. The makers have made it clear that they took Government permission and submitted the draft early for no objection certificate.

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and we are sure couples are busy planning their romantic dates already. 14th February is celebrated all over the world and you can literally feel the love in the air. While many believe it’s a bit cliched and you don’t need a day to proclaim your love for special someone. There are others who don’t mind enjoying it with their partners and make them feel loved. The couples will definitely have a reason to celebrate and plan some candlelight dinners with a bouquet of roses as a customary ritual and gift, the ones who are single and ready to mingle shouldn’t be disappointed either.

With a bunch of our dashing B-town boys who are pretty single, there can never be a reason to be sad and heartbroken. While popular names like Shahid Kapoor, Ranveer Singh and even Sushant Singh Rajput are already taken, there are others who are still available. And we bet, if given a chance, you, too, will love to date them on Valentine’s Day. What if we ask you to chose your date between Ranbir Kapoor, Varun Dhawan or Arjun Kapoor? Whom will you pick? Tough question, right? Well, we can help you with it. We elaborate on who’s an ideal choice and the reason why you should date them.

Ranbir Kapoor

Ranbir Kapoor is easily the most eligible bachelor in town. He’s smart and his droopy eyes can make any girl go weak in her knees. If we have to name someone Prince Charming, Ranbir is the only name that comes to our mind. Also there has to be a reason why beauties like Deepika Padukone and Katrina Kaif have dated him in the past. His charm has a long lasting effect, even on divas, and this itself should motivate you enough to vote for him.

Varun Dhawan

They say girls like humour and they love guys with good comic timing. Who else but Varun Dhawan fits in this category? We have already seen him ace the comic genre with hits like Judwaa 2 and Main Tera Hero. Varun is funny and quite the boy of every girl’s dream. And last but not the least, he’ll give you numerous reasons to flaunt your million dollar smile on any given day.

Sidharth Malhotra

When we say tall, dark and handsome, there’s only name that fits the bell – Sidharth Malhotra. He is incredibly stylish and his boyish charm works wonders on girls. His athletic physique, on the other hand, makes us swoon over him. Apart from his good looks, his coy smile and infectious persona should be the major reason for you to pick him as your date for Valentine’s Day.

Aditya Roy Kapur

Have you seen Aditya Roy Kapur’s hot bod? If yes, you won’t need a reason to not see him as your Mr Right. And to top that, he has dimples. Yes we say it again ‘DIMPLES.’ What else do you even need? Shah Rukh Khan is unfortunately taken and apart from him, Aditya is the only actor who has such cute dimples. SRK fans can pick him up right away.

Arjun Kapoor

You always need a good friend in your partner and Arjun Kapoor can be one. He’ll listen to you when you want him to and advise you, if need be. He’s the kind of guy you take home to meet your parents. There’s no better partner than a best friend. And always remember, your best friend can be your partner but seldom can your partner be your best friend. After all Shah Rukh Khan had once said, ‘Pyaar Dosti Hai.’
