The weekend gone by has been long and controversial on the Bollywood front. And we have kick-started the new week on the same note. From the NCB holding meeting to decide on the next course of action to Ranbir Kapoor and Lata Mangeshkar celebrating their birthdays today, here’s all that happened today. ETimes brings a new segment Bolly Buzz which goes beyond the usual mix of news and gossip to give all its readers a roundup of trending stories of the day.
Ranbir Kapoor, who turned a year younger today, celebrated his special day with his near and dear ones. Kareena Kapoor Khan, sister Riddhima Kapoor Sahni and the Kapoor family raised a toast to the birthday boy with some of the cutest social media posts.

Apart from him, Lata Mangeshkar too celebrated her 91st birthday today. Several Bollywood celebrities including Kangana Ranaut, filmmaker Madhur Bhandarkar, Shankar Mahadevan, and many others took to social media to extend some thoughtful birthday wishes to the veteran singer. But making the day extra special, was the PM who called the legend to wish her on her birthday. “Spoke to respected Lata Didi and conveyed birthday greetings to her. Praying for her long and healthy life,” Modi said in a tweet.
After the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) grilled Deepika Padukone, Rakul Preet Singh, Sara Ali Khan, Shraddha Kapoor, and the others on the ongoing drug abuse angle in the Sushant Singh Rajput case, it seems that the stars’ phones were taken, statements recorded, superiors called in and top-secret meeting held to discuss the next course of action. Reportedly, NCB has also been given the green signal to call more celebs for questioning.

Meanwhile, B-town has been buzzing about Kshitij Prasad allegedly being “FORCED” and specifically asked to name Karan Johar in his statement to the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB). Prasad’s lawyer Satish Manshinde alleged “Torture and ill-treatment” by the agency, besides the coercion; claims that the NCB has denied. Meanwhile, Prasad even went on to claim in a statement that he is “being framed” in this drug case.

While the NCB continues with its investigations, fans of Sushant Singh Rajput have turned their focus back on the CBI and are now demanding some answers. Citing that agency has been probing the case for over a month, fans and even Sushant’s family have been demanding an official statement on the agency’s findings in this case. Meanwhile, netizens went ahead and started trending #AIIMSBeFairWithSSRReport in a bid to encourage the medical agency to release their findings in this death case.
