Sara's comment came in the wake of her recent statement during an interview, where she said that the harsh criticism that the trailer of her new film drew from certain quarters has hurt her.

Actress Sara Ali Khan, who is gearing up for the release of “Love Aaj Kal”, says that she doesn’t take people’s opinions too seriously. She added that in the age of social media, people make and break opinions only too quickly.

“I think it (passing judgments quickly) is great. I feel you should make your judgments quickly because in the age of social media, you also take it back quickly. When someone says that he or she doesn’t like a shot or a song (in a film) in a glance, but if they will watch it two or three times, then they might like it. So, I feel we shouldn’t pay heed to what people say. I think everything is there in an open display, and people express their opinions a lot in today’s time. People make and break their opinions too quickly, so I don’t take it too seriously,” said Sara, while promoting her upcoming film “Love Aaj Kal” with co-star Kartik Aaryan in Mumbai.


Sara’s comment came in the wake of her recent statement during an interview, where she said that the harsh criticism that the trailer of her new film drew from certain quarters has hurt her. In the interview, she said that she didn’t care if people judged her for her weight or fashion choices, but it did affect her when her acting skills were panned.

The trailer for Imtiaz Ali’s “Love Aaj Kal” was heavily panned online, mostly by netizens who felt Sara was overacting. Fans were disappointed at Sara for seemingly hamming through a particular scene. However, Sara says she was actually crying while shooting for the scene.

Criticism apart, people are eager to see Kartik and Sara’s chemistry on the big screen for the first time, as it has been reported that the two stars have been dating for a while now.

“We are grateful for it,” Sara said about the buzz that the film has generated, adding: “It’s not very often you see people showering this kind of love even before anything of the film came out. I am 98 per cent thankful but I am still two per cent nervous because there will be a lot of scrutiny on Valentine’s Day. Keeping that aside, we are very thankful for all the encouragement we are getting for this film.”

Being the daughter of Saif Ali Khan and Amrita Singh, does she feel her talent is inborn? “I wish that was the case but contrary to popular belief, its (acting) not in the genes. My father and mother have a lot of experience as actors and I have seen them doing that, so I can get some benefit out of that. But talent is a separate thing. Everyone has their strengths and weaknesses, and everyone has their destiny and journey. So, I don’t think that way,” she said. “Love Aaj Kal” is slated to release on February 14.

Upcoming medical colleges in Uttar Pradesh will be named after saints and sages

The new medical colleges being opened in Uttar Pradesh will be named after saints and sages.

The state government has issued an order naming four district hospitals that are being converted into medical colleges.

These district hospitals are in Bijnor, Fatehpur, Chandauli, and Siddharth Nagar.

The Bijnor medical college has been named after Mahatma Vidur, a philosopher during the Mahabharata era and uncle of the Pandavas and Kauravas.

The Chandauli medical college has been named after Baba Keenaram, said to be the founder of the Aghori sect.

The Siddharth Nagar district hospital will be called Madhav Prasad Tripathi Medical College after the BJP politician from the region. Tripathi, popularly known as Madhav Babu, was also the first Uttar Pradesh BJP chief. He was elected MP from Domariyaganj in 1977, besides being two times Jan Sangh MLA and also a member of the UP legislative council.

The Fatehpur hospital has been named Amar Shaheed Jodha Singh Ataiya Thakur Dariyawn Singh Medical College, after the freedom fighter of 1857.

It is said that he was among the first to use Guerrilla warfare against the British, as taught by freedom fighter Tatya Tope.

Meanwhile, according to official sources, the medical college in Deoria will be named after Maharishi Devraha Baba and the medical college of Ghazipur in the name of Maharishi Vishwamitra.

The medical college of Mirzapur will be in the name of Maa Vindhyavasini, the medical college of Pratapgarh in the name of Dr. Sonelal Patel and the medical college of Etah will be named after Veerangana Avantibai Lodhi. (IANS/JB)

Former Pakistan captain Inzamam-ul-Haq has picked India as the favourite to win the ongoing ICC Men's T20 World Cup in Oman and United Arab Emirates (UAE).

Inzamam feels that the Virat Kohli-led India have a greater chance of winning the trophy as the conditions in the Gulf nations are similar to the subcontinent, which makes India the most dangerous side in the event, according to Inzamam.

"In any tournament, it cannot be said for certain that a particular team will win' It's all about how much chance do they have of winning it. In my opinion, India have a greater chance than any other team of winning this tournament, especially in conditions like these. They have experienced T20 players as well," said Inzamam on his YouTube channel.

He said more than the Indian batters, the bowlers have a lot of experience of playing in the conditions. The Indian Premier League (IPL) was played recently in UAE and most of the Indian bowlers did well in that leg.

Inzy heaped praises on the Men in Blue for the confident manner in which they chased the target against Australia on a challenging track without needing Kohli's batting prowess.

"India played their warm-up fixture against Australia rather comfortably. On subcontinent pitches like these, India are the most dangerous T20 side in the world. Even today, if we see the 155 runs they chased down, they did not even need Virat Kohli to do so," he added.

Though he did not pick any favourite, Inzamam termed the India-Pakistan clash in the Super 12 on October 24 as the 'final before the final' and said the team winning it will go into the remaining matches high on morale,

"The match between India and Pakistan in the Super 12s is the final before the final. No match will be hyped as much as this one. Even in the 2017 Champions Trophy, India and Pakistan started and finished the tournament by facing each other, and both the matches felt like finals. The team winning that match will have their morale boosted and will also have 50 percent of pressure released from them," Inzamam added. (IANS/JB)

Moisturising the body in the morning sets your skin up to face countless irritants and environmental factors during the day. The skin is constantly exposed to harsh chemicals and pollutants when you're outside which is why using a protective and soothing moisturiser while going out is necessary. Kimirica's Five Elements Body Lotion comes with natural Aloe Vera extracts that act as a rich source of antioxidants and vitamins that helps protect your skin and provide a deep nourishing effect.
