Virat-Anushka Welcome Girl Child

Power couple Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma recently welcomed their baby girl.

Cricketer Virat Kohli, who had taken paternity leave, took to social media to announce the birth of his daughter. He also requested privacy for both mother and child. 

Priyanka Chopra, Alia Bhatt, Varun Dhawan, Sania Mirza, etc. congratulated the couple.

Virat and Anushka married in 2017 in Italy after almost three years of dating. 

Anushka announced her pregnancy last year through social media. 

She had worked as a producer and made hit projects 'Paatal Lok' and 'Bulbbul.' 

 

Bhumi Pednekar Wants Gender Pay Gap To Reduce

Bollywood actress Bhumi Pednekar spoke against the existing wage gap between women and men. 

Women in cinema are paid one-third, sometimes one-fifth of their male counterparts. It is because of the general notion that men generate revenue while women's role in films is as his "love interest" or "eye-candy" for the male audience. 

However, recent years saw more women-led projects, backed by their roles as producers. 

Bhumi starred in 'Durgamati', 'Dum Laga Ke Haisha', 'Shubh Mangal Saavdhan', 'Sonchiriya' and 'Saand Ki Aankh.'

She said that the gender gap on pay scales is seen and it has to be diminished.
