MUMBAI: The release date of the anticipated sequel 'Wonder Woman 1984' has been delayed from October 2 to December by Warner Bros amid COVID-19. Its recent release 'Tenet' fared well in its international-first launch, but found ticket sales harder to come by in the United States with 25% theatres remaining closed. 

Bollywood actress Rhea Chakraborty is in the Byculla jail in Mumbai and kept in a single cell without a ceiling fan or a bed. Her immediate neighbour is Indrani Mukerjea, accused of murdering her daughter Sheena Bora in 2012. Chakraborthy has been arrested by the Narcotics Bureau for the drugs angle that emerged during an investigation into her ex-boyfriend Rajput’s death.

Bollywood continued to condemn the injustice and media trial she is being subjected to. Stars such as Richa Chadha, Taapsee Pannu, Farhan Akhtar, Anurag Kashyap, and Sonam Kapoor condemned the media trial against her. 

As per reports, Rhea Chakraborthy has named Sara Ali Khan and Rakul Preet Singh for their alleged drug use during the questioning by the Narcotics Bureau. 

UNICEF India has roped in Bollywood actor Ayushmann Khurrana as a celebrity advocate who will work at ending violence against children under the #ForEveryChild. 'Article 15' actor said that it is his honour to work with the United Nations to work for the rights of the most vulnerable children so that they grow up as happier, healthier, and educated citizens amid nurturing environments, free from all forms of violence. 

Bollywood actor Aftab Shivdasani took to social media to confirm that he has tested positive for COVID-19. He had exhibited symptoms, which is why he got himself tested. 

Hollywood star and humanitarian Angelina Jolie made a surprise donation to two British children Ayaan Moose and Mikaeel Ishaa, who are running a lemonade stand since July in London to raise money for assisting those suffering from a crisis in Yemen.
