South Indian superstar Mammootty celebrates his 69th birthday today. The actor started the mobile phone trend on sets 25 years ago when he used it on the sets of 'Aayiram Naavulla Ananthan.'

Congress member from Karnataka Kavitha Reddy released an apology to Samyukta Hedge for moral policing in the park after much outrage. Reddy confronted her for wearing 'revealing clothes' which was a sports bra Hedge had while working out. Reddy was heard slut-shaming Hedge in the viral video. 

Reddy said in her statement that she always opposed moral policing.

The incident happened at a public park near the Agara lake in Bengaluru where the actor and her two friends were practising hula hoops. Hedge said in her video that police were siding with Reddy and simply asked them to be quiet.
