From celebs waking up to the news of the demise of Kathak legend Pandit Birju Maharaj, to stars sending birthday love to Ali Abbas Zafar and Akshay Kumar clocking another year of marital bliss with wife Twinkle Khanna, here are the biggest headlines of the day.

Kathak legend, Birju Maharaj is no more. He reportedly passed away from a heart attack on Monday, January 17. He was 83. His grandson, Swaransh Mishra, shared the unfortunate news in an Instagram post. Since news broke, Bollywood stars from Kareena Kapoor Khan to Madhuri Dixit, Janhvi Kapoor to Ananya Panday and many others took to social media to honour the legend.

Lata Mangeshkar is continuing her fight against COVID. Contrary to reports that the singer’s condition has deteriorated, our sources confirmed that Lata ji is stable. Her spokesperson informed us, “It is disturbing to see false news being circulated. Please note that Lata Didi is stable. Continues to be in ICU under the treatment of able doctors. Please pray for her quick return home.”

Suhana Khan’s cousin Alia Chibba celebrated her birthday recently. Ali Abbas Zafar also opted for a quiet celebration as he turned a year older. Katrina Kaif, Shahid Kapoor and others took to their social media handles to wish the director on his special day by sharing some unseen pictures from the sets.

Akshay Kumar celebrated his 21st wedding anniversary with his wife Twinkle Khanna. The couple marked the day with a hilariously cute post on social media. Sharing their conversation, Twinkle said that if they were to meet at a party today, she didn’t know if she would even talk to him. Replying to her, Akki said he would talk to her and say, “Bhabhi ji, how is Bhai Sahab, kids fine? Ok, Namaste.”

Some desi fans were calling Zayn Malik an ‘Expensive Kabir Singh’. The hunk resurfaced on social media after his break-up with Gigi Hadid following an altercation with her mom, Yolanda Hadid. ‘Break up ke baad Zayn bhai toh Kabir Singh bante jaa raha hai’. The look also reminded some other fans of Allu Arjun’s latest hit ‘Pushpa’ while some others compared his look to Hrithik Roshan’s ‘Vikram Vedha’.

Varun Dhawan and Kiara Advani have been roped in for Nitesh Tiwari’s next project that is said to be a love story. The report also suggests that Janhvi was being considered for the film. But now Nitesh has finalised Kiara as the leading lady. The actors will also be seen sharing the screen space in Raj Mehta’s ‘Jug Jugg Jeeyo’.
