Dream Girl 2 has established its Box Office dominance over the weekend with a notable three-day collection. The movie, a highly anticipated sequel, has managed to captivate the audience's attention and has garnered an impressive total of ₹40.71 crore, as per Sacnilk.

Dream Girl 2 boasts an impressive screen count exceeding 2,200 screens, a considerable expansion compared to the initial screen count of OMG 2. The film's producers have maintained standard ticket rates, with an average price ranging from ₹210-220, as per Koimoi.

The film's box office journey kicked off on a promising note with its first-day collection amounting to ₹10.69 crore, setting the tone for a successful run. The upward trajectory continued on the second day as Dream Girl 2 witnessed a surge in footfalls, accumulating a noteworthy ₹14.02 crore. This impressive figure marked a remarkable 31.15% increase from the first-day earnings, clearly reflecting the growing popularity of the film.

The momentum carried through to the much-awaited Sunday, where the movie's charismatic storytelling and engaging performances attracted even larger crowds. While early estimates for the third day indicate a substantial collection of ₹16 crore, the final figures are anticipated to further bolster the film's commendable Box Office run.

Dream Girl 2, a sequel that has generated significant buzz and anticipation, has successfully built upon the foundation laid by its predecessor. The film's unique narrative, coupled with a stellar performance by Ayushmann Khurrana, has undoubtedly struck a chord with the audience.

Dream Girl 2 review

“On the face of it, Dream Girl 2 is audacious, unapologetic and entertaining," wrote Monika Rawal Kukreja in the Hindustan Times. “The story is fine and well intended. It makes you laugh out loud, there are some witty one-liners, clever jokes, references to some other films, which sometimes works and falls flat other times."

“Everything from his voice to his walk to the flutter of his eyelids is impeccable," wrote Tushar Joshi on India Today while praising Ayushmann's performance. “On the whole, the overall experience of watching Pooja in her true element getting caught up in some crazy situations is quite fun. The jokes and gags (the Gadar 2 and BTS reference) are witty and some are downright funny."

“At times, as a franchise comedy, Dream Girl 2 surpasses Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 in silliness and unoriginality. Most of the gags are stolen from the first film: Annu Kapoor's Muslim travesties, Karam seducing unsuspecting men on the phone," wrote Shilajit Mitra in The Hindu.

Yet Another Majestic Structure Will Be Lost Due to PM Modi's 'Systematic Erasure Campaign'

Posted By: Jogendra Kumar Posted On: Sep 29, 2023

Criticising the Centre over the National Museum being vacated under the Central Vista redevelopment project, the Congress on Friday alleged that yet another majestic structure will be lost as part of the “systematic erasure campaign” of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Congress general secretary Jairam Ramesh shared pictures of the National Museum building and said there was no guarantee that this national treasure would survive the supposed relocation.

“Yet another majestic building that combines finely the modern with the traditional is to vanish by the end of this year. The National Museum designed by G B Deolalikar and inaugurated in December 1960 is being demolished. Incidentally, he also designed the main block of the Supreme Court which hopefully will survive,” he said in a post on X.

“The nation loses not just a majestic structure but also loses a piece of its recent history which is the target of a systematic erasure campaign of the Prime Minister. It has over 2,00,000 priceless exhibits and there is no guarantee that this national treasure will survive the supposed relocation,” Ramesh said.

The Congress leader said the National Museum also has a wonderful history as its first director was Grace Morley, an American museologist who came to India for the first time in 1960 in that position.

“She remained Director till 1966 but later continued to stay in Delhi where she was cremated in 1985. She earned the respect of one and all and was referred to as Mataji Morley,” he said in his post.

The National Museum in Delhi, home to a collection of rich ancient artefacts, is likely to be vacated by the end of this year as part of the Central Vista redevelopment project, sources said on Thursday.

It is not clear whether the over 60-year-old building, one of the most iconic modern landmarks of the capital city, will be retained or razed after its objects and collections are shifted.

“As part of the Central Vista redevelopment project, the plan is to vacate the National Museum by the end of this year. Instructions have been given to search for a space where the collections could be safely and properly shifted,” a source said.

The collections will eventually be housed in the proposed Yuge Yugeen Bharat National Museum which would be located in the North Block and South Block of the Raisina Hill complex.

On August 15, 1949, the National Museum was inaugurated in the Rashtrapati Bhavan by C Rajagopalachari, the then Governor-General of India, before finding a home at Janpath.

Dy CM Shivakumar Says Karnataka Bandh Was Not Needed Published 47 minutes ago

Posted By: Jogendra Kumar Posted On: Sep 29, 2023

Karnataka Deputy Chief Minister D K Shivakumar on Friday said there was no need for a bandh over Cauvery row as his government is protecting the interests of the State.

A Karnataka bandh, called by various pro-Kannada organisations along with farmers' outfits, was observed today to protest the release of Cauvery water to Tamil Nadu.

“There was no need for bandh, which some organisations have called,” Shivakumar told reporters here.

He said the government is protecting the interests of the state.

The Deputy CM, who holds the Water Resources portfolio, said the government ensured that no one faced hardship during the bandh which he added was peaceful, and vehicles plied and shops were open at many places as usual.

In Saudi-Israel Deal

Posted By: Jaydatt Chaudhary Posted On: Sep 29, 2023
Money alone might not satisfy Palestinian leaders who are trying to influence the shape of the deal.

TEL AVIV—Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s big bet on sealing a landmark rapprochement with Saudi Arabia is running into a familiar problem: The Palestinians want land for giving their blessing to a deal, but Netanyahu’s coalition partners are adamantly against the idea.

Talks have been in flux over economic incentives for the Palestinians to get on board with what would be a historic realignment in the Middle East. With the U.S. helping broker the deal, those incentives have broadly included upgrading infrastructure in the West Bank, such as roads and telecommunications, while providing more work permits for Palestinians to work in Israel and freeing up hundreds of millions of dollars in Saudi aid.

“The main idea is how to ease the lives of the Palestinian people," said an Israeli official with knowledge of Netanyahu's thinking.

Money alone might not satisfy Palestinian leaders who are trying to influence the shape of the deal. The Wall Street Journal has reported that some in the Palestinian leadership want Israel to relinquish control over small parts of the occupied West Bank and tear down some Israeli settlements there.

But while that's a more modest demand than creating a separate Palestinian state, which had been the default position of both the Palestinians and the Saudis in the past, Netanyahu's partners in his ruling coalitions are already pushing back.

Netanyahu came back to power late last year in a coalition with far-right parties that were once on the fringe of Israeli politics, and support the complete takeover of the West Bank by Jewish authorities. They are especially opposed to anything that would resemble the 1993 Oslo Peace Accords, which created the Palestinian Authority and laid out a path toward creating an independent state.

“Our government won't come within a kilometer of anything that even smells like Oslo," said Israeli Finance Minister Bezalel Smotrich in public remarks earlier in September.

Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas is unlikely to welcome any deal that doesn't have a clear political component, said Ghassan Khatib, a former Palestinian official and now a lecturer of international studies at Birzeit University, located in the West Bank.

“No matter how big the financial component will be, it will not be enough. Without a political component, no Palestinian leadership, including Mahmoud Abbas, can bless a deal," Khatib said.

The Biden administration wants Israel to take measures that will preserve the possibility of establishing a Palestinian state next to Israel in the future, the Israeli official said, but offered no details on what those steps might be.

The unknown element is how much the Saudis care.

Khatib said the Palestinians' demands won't be a “make or break issue" for Saudi Arabia. Privately, Saudi officials have said they need a significant concession to the Palestinians for them to formally recognize the existence of the Israeli state—but it isn't yet clear what such a concession could entail.

If Netanyahu can't thread the needle, he would have to decide between rejecting a deal that would rank among the most significant legacies of his three decades in public life, or pushing it through with the support of his opponents in Israel's parliament, the Knesset, potentially causing his government to collapse.

Those dynamics have made the Israeli-Palestinian conflict one of the thorniest issues in a multilayered deal in which the Saudis also want a formal U.S. defense pact and American help building a nuclear-power program.

“I think the Palestinian component is the most complicated part of the deal," said William Wechsler, senior director of the N7 Initiative, a Washington-based organization that is working on regional integration in the Middle East.

He said the U.S. has had success negotiating with Saudi Arabia on potential uranium enrichment and defense, while its spotty record on Israeli-Palestinian peace showed how tough the issue is.

The U.S. and Saudi Arabia haven't said what concessions they would accept for the Palestinians. Netanyahu also hasn't publicly commented on the matter, except to say that any concession wouldn't hurt Israeli security. He has also said the Palestinians should be a part of the deal but shouldn't have any veto power over it.

Saudi Arabia's de facto ruler, Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, told Fox News last week that the Palestinian issue is important to the kingdom but stopped short of demanding the creation of a Palestinian state, as Saudi Arabia had insisted before.

Instead, he said he hoped a deal would “ease the life of the Palestinians," mirroring some of the Israelis' language.

Smotrich and other Israeli lawmakers, including many from Netanyahu's own Likud party who oppose territorial concessions, would also back economic concessions to the Palestinians.

An aide to Smotrich said he sees improving the lives of Palestinians as a shared interest and would support projects such as improving refugee camps, sewage and water infrastructure, and the establishment of trade and commerce centers.

Smotrich's ascent to power has coincided with a sharp turn in the larger Israeli public against ceding land for peace with Palestinians, a trend that began after a violent Palestinian uprising known as the Second Intifada that lasted from 2000 to 2005.

The idea lost further traction after Israel uprooted its settlements in the Gaza Strip, and the Palestinian enclave was quickly taken over by U.S.-designated terrorist organization Hamas, which has fired tens of thousands of rockets into Israel since. Polling conducted in March and April by the Pew Research Center found that support among Israeli Jews for a two-state solution was 35%, down from 46% in 2013.

The Palestinians weren't a part of the previous normalization deals between Israel and four Muslim-majority states in 2020, known as the Abraham Accords. They also rejected out-of-hand a peace proposal from the Trump administration that Palestinians considered heavily biased in favor of Israel.

Danish Ali seeks ‘suitable punishment’ for BJP MP Bidhuri from PM Modi

Posted By: Ramesh Sharma Posted On: Sep 29, 2023
BSP MP Danish Ali addresses a press conference in New Delhi, Friday (PTI)

Bahujan Samaj Party MP Danish Ali has written to Prime Minister Narendra Modi seeking ‘suitable punishment’ for Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) MP Ramesh Bidhuri over the latter's communal remarks on the floor of Lok Sabha.

BSP MP Danish Ali on Friday urged Prime Minister Narendra Modi to make a public statement condemning Bidhuri's behavior. In a letter to the prime minister, Ali also demanded that he be provided enhanced security in view of an "escalation of threats" against him. Noting that the Modi was not present in the House, Ali claimed that Bidhuri used "inappropriate language" when referring to the prime minister during his address.

Bidhuri's communal remarks targeting Ali during a discussion on the success of the Chandrayaan-3 lunar mission last Thursday sparked a furore, with opposition leaders calling for stringent action against the BJP MP.

Opposition parties have rallied around Ali and targeted the BJP on its MP's remarks. Several members of the Congress, TMC and NCP among others have written to Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla seeking the strictest action against Bidhuri.

Vedanta plans zinc business shake-up as debt payment looms

Posted By: Ajay Rawat Posted On: Sep 29, 2023
Vedanta chairman Anil Agarwal(HT Photo)

Billionaire Anil Agarwal is exploring an overhaul of his lucrative Indian zinc unit that could split out its three core businesses, as part of the wider Vedanta group's efforts to reduce a multibillion dollar debt load.

Hindustan Zinc Ltd. said in a statement that it could create separate legal entities for its zinc & lead, silver, and recycling businesses to help capitalize on “distinct market positions” and attract investors. A committee of directors will evaluate the options and advise the board, along with external advisers.Shares of Vedanta Ltd., which controls the zinc business, jumped as much as 7.9% in Mumbai after the news, while Hindustan Zinc climbed as much as 6.6%.ALSO READ: Foxconn drops plans for $19.5 billion JV with Vedanta to make electronic chips

Bloomberg News reported earlier this week that Agarwal's Vedanta Ltd. was preparing a broad overhaul, with businesses including aluminum, oil and gas, iron ore and steel to be separately listed — an effort that could put better price tags on some assets and pave the way for Agarwal to hive off low-growth operations to raise cash.

“Agarwal's efforts remind me of the phrase rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic,” said Amit Tandon, managing director and founder of proxy advisory firm Institutional Investor Advisory Services India Ltd. “Capital allocation decisions in the operating companies are being driven by the debt in the holding company and the need to service this.”

The Indian government, which owns almost 30% of Hindustan Zinc, would need to consider the changes and the impact on the entity's debt, he said.

Efforts to simplify a complex financial structure and to reduce a deep conglomerate discount have been floated by the group in the past, including in a video posted in August, but have not previously come to fruition. A heavy debt load has increased the urgency of those plans, though. Vedanta Resources Ltd., the parent of Vedanta Ltd., has $2 billion of bond repayments due in 2024 and another $1.2 billion in 2025.

Vedanta to demerge its five key businesses into separate listed firms

Posted By: Ajay Rawat Posted On: Sep 29, 2023

Mining conglomerate Vedanta Ltd on Friday announced plans to demerge five of its key businesses, including aluminium, oil and gas, and steel, into separate listed entities with a view to create shareholder value.

"The de-merger is planned to be a simple vertical split, for every 1 share of Vedanta Limited, the shareholders will additionally receive 1 share of each of the 5 newly listed companies," the firm said in a stock exchange filing.

The Board of Vendata Ltd approved "a pure-play, asset-owner business model" that will result in aluminium, oil and gas, power, steel and ferrous materials, and base metals being demerged and listed separately.

Vedanta Ltd will continue to hold 65 per cent of Hindustan Zinc Ltd as well as the new businesses of stainless steel and semiconductor/display.

The entire exercise is proposed to be completed in 12-15 months.
