No Time to Die has been reportedly pushed to next year. CHANDIGARH | SUNDAY | 4 OCTOBER 2020 In search of truth Irrespective of the report by AIIMS that rules out murder angle in SSR case, fans continue to demand justice. Celebs, except the likes of Kangana, on the other hand remain tight-lipped Gurnaaz Kaur A Her life, her way Priyanka Chopra unveils the cover of her memoir Unfinished Priyanka Chopra has finally released the cover of her upcoming memoir titled Unfinished, which will be released on January 19, 2021. Priyanka shared the cover on social media with fans and wrote, “Ironically, I named this memoir even before I started writing it. Having been a public person now for 20 years, with so much life to live and a long list of things to check off my list personally and professionally, I am very much #Unfinished. But the funny thing about writing a memoir is that it forces you to look at things differently, reconciling so many things you thought you had put to bed. In doing so I’ve realised that being ‘unfinished’ has a deeper meaning for me, and has in fact been one of the most common threads of my life…” She added, “I am a product of traditional India and its ancient wisdom, and modern India and its urban bustle. My upbringing was always an amalgamation of the two, and, just as much, of East and West.” Unfinished will reveal Priyanka’s childhood in India, through her formative teenage years in the US living with extended family in the Midwest (Cedar Rapids and Indianapolis), Queens, and suburban Boston, where she endured bouts of racism; to her return to India, where she unexpectedly won the national and global beauty pageants (Miss India and Miss World), which launched her acting career. CCORDING to the latest update in Sushant Singh Rajput’s case, the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), New Delhi, has reportedly 'hinted' at suicide and not murder. The medical institute has apparently dismissed theories about strangling and poisoning as well. A team of four doctors from AIIMS was asked to study the report of the autopsy. Reportedly, SSR’s viscera received by them was very less in quantity and degenerative. However, AIIMS panel led by Dr Sudhir Gupta has finally completed the examination and closed the file after giving conclusive medicolegal opinion. The CBI is now corroborating the report with their investigation. “There were no injuries on the body other than of hanging. There were no marks of struggle/scuffle on the body and clothes of the deceased,” says Dr Sudhir Gupta, chairman of AIIMS Forensic Medical Board formed in Sushant Singh Rajput death case. Vikas Singh, the lawyer representing Sushant’s father, had previously claimed that an AIIMS doctor had told him that the ligature marks on Sushant’s neck were consistent with strangulation. Addressing a press conference, Vikas had said, “AIIMS doctor told me that Sushant’s death was by strangulation.” But now, reports confirm that it was a case of suicide. The report further states that CBI is likely to continue its probe into abetment to suicide as Sushant Singh Rajput’s family had filed a case with Bihar police against Rhea Chakraborty and others. A source shares, “All aspects are still open in the probe; if any evidence comes to light proving otherwise, Section 302 of the Indian Penal Code (murder) will be added, but nothing has come up in 45 days of the probe.” SSR’S SISTER SHWETA SINGH KIRTI IS ALSO HOPEFUL OF GETTING JUSTICE. AFTER AIIMS REPORT WAS OUT, SHWETA TOOK TO TWITTER AND WROTE: “WE WILL WIN!” ACCEPT THE FACTS, SAYS ACTOR RAHUL JAITTLY KANGANA RANAUT CONTINUES TO TWEET Actor Rahul Jaittly, last seen in Heer Ranjha, believes the new development in SSR’s case is a ray of hope for the family. He adds, “SSR’s family members deserve to know the truth more than anyone else. And if AIIMS has given the report, which is ruling out murder, then we too have to accept the facts as they are. Investigation and law do not run on emotions, and it is about putting two-and-two together. I have full faith in agencies involved in the investigation.” He adds, “It is true that the investigators had to run in all directions to rule out every possibility that existed. May God give the strength to people to accept the truth, whether it is a murder or a suicide; it has been hard these past few months.” (Inputs by Sheetal) ■ “With the latest progress we need answers to a few questions. 1) SSR repeatedly spoke about big production houses banning him. Who are these people who conspired against him? 2) Why the media spread false news about him being a rapist? 3) Why was Mahesh Bhatt doing his psychoanalysis?” ■ Young and extraordinary individuals don’t just wake up one fine day and kill themselves. Sushant said he was being bullied and outcast, he feared for his life, he said movie mafia banned him and harassed him; he was mentally affected by being falsely accused of rape #AIIMS FANS SEEK JUSTICE Meanwhile, Sushant’s fans continue seeking justice for the late actor. Hundreds of SSR fans gathered at Delhi’s Jantar Mantar on October 2 to kick-start a threeday-long hunger strike seeking justice for Sushant. Since Friday, social media has #Revolution4SSR and #HungerStrike4SSR trending on Twitter. While the hunger strike will con- tinue today (Sunday) as well, Saturday saw #302ForSSRKillers making its way into the Twitter trending list. Fans are not satisfied with the AIIMS report and demand CBI to solve the mystery behind Sushant’s death. SSR’s sister Shweta Singh Kirti is also hopeful of getting justice. After AIIMS report was out, Shweta took to Twitter and wrote: “We Will Win!” If at one point the whole Bolly- The mute ones need care too… On World Animal Welfare Day, celebrities, who are proud pet parents, express love for them Unconditional love Himani Shivpuri Arya and I have been inseparable, but during my Covid-19 treatment, I had no option but to leave her at home.

This day is a wonderful reminder of different ways in which animals make our lives beautiful. SUBUHI JOSHI wood industry was supporting the case and showcased solidarity, today, but for a few stray voices, no one wants to speak about it. Taking a jibe at the state of affairs, filmmaker Ram Gopal Varma in a tweet said, “Now that AIIMS ruled out murder in SSR case and if CBI also does the same, I guess the next demand will be for a CIA or a MOSSAD investigation.” Akshay, Vaani back in Mumbai The cast and crew of Pooja Entertainment’s espionage thriller Bellbottom are back in Mumbai after wrapping up a memorable schedule. Akshay Kumar and Vaani Kapoor landed at the Mumbai airport on Saturday morning in a retro look. Vaani looked gorgeous in her pair of bellbottoms.
