Entertainment News Live Updates: Anushka Sharma-Virat Kohli ring in daughter Vamika’s 1st birthday

Actor Siddharth’s tweet on Saina Nehwal, dubbed derogatory by many on social media, has been condemned by the badminton champion and her family. The National Commission for Women has also demanded action against the actor. Earlier this week, Saina tweeted, “No nation can claim itself to be safe if the security of its own PM gets compromised. I condemn, in the strongest words possible, the cowardly attack on PM Modi by anarchists.” She expressed her concerns on Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s recent security breach. In response to it, Siddharth tweeted, “Subtle cock champion of the world. Thank God we have protectors of India (sic).”

The comment didn’t go down well with the Olympic bronze medallist and her fans. The NCW asked Twitter India to “immediately” block the actor’s account. To his defence, Siddharth said, “Nothing disrespectful was intended, said or insinuated.”

Amid the controversy, Saina Nehwal’s husband and shuttler Parupalli Kashyap and father Harvir Singh Nehwal have condemned the actor.

Hrithik Roshan's ex-wife and friend Sussanne Khan took to Instagram to share a video of the Vikram Vedha actor with his sons. 'U are an amazing Dad.. Ray n Ridz are so sooo lucky to have you as theirs.. May all your dreams and wishes come true today n always 😁♥️🥳 🤗🌟🌟 bigggg hug,' she captioned the video.

On a lighter note, Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli are celebrating Vamika's first birthday today. The couple welcomed Vamika in 2021. Since her birth, the couple has kept their child away from the paparazzi and has often requested media to respect the privacy and not take pictures of their daughter.

In December, Anushka shared a note thanking the paparazzi for their support. "We are deeply thankful to the Indian paparazzi and most of the media fraternity for not publishing pictures/videos of Vamika. As parents, our request to the few who carried the images/video will be to support us going forward," the actor wrote, adding, "We seek privacy for our child and would like to do our best to give her a chance to live her life freely away from media and social media. As she is older we cannot restrict her movement and hence your support is needed so kindly practice restraint in the matter. Special thank you to fan clubs and people of the internet for going out of your way to not post images. It was kind and highly mature of you."
