CHANDIGARH | MONDAY | 2 JANUARY 2023 Suhana Khan All set to blossom Miley Cyrus is coming out with a new single, Flowers Miley Cyrus has a New Year gift for all her fans. The singer-actress will be releasing a new single titled Flowers, on January 13. The announcement came when a video showing Cyrus strutting through a street played after a commercial break. In the clip, the Prisoner singer wore a gold mini dress that exposed her stomach, as a snippet of the upcoming tune played. “New Year, New Miley, New Single. Flowers January 13,” then flashed across a black background in white lettering. Back in November, talk about new music from Cyrus began to circulate online after the Angels Like You songstress reunited in the studio with music producer Mike WiLL Made-It, with whom she worked on her fourth studio album Bangerz in 2013. —IANS Ranveer Singh’s New Year message has put his fans in a place of confusion. The actor took to his Instagram shortly after the arrival of 2023 and shared a clip from the 1994 Tom Hanks’ classic Forrest Gump. It shows Hanks’ titular character wishing a happy New Year to Gary Sinise’s character of Lieutenant Dan Taylor, who lost his limbs during the Vietnam War. As Forrest wishes him, Gary sits in silence contemplating the void brought upon him by life. This is quite unusual for Ranveer, who otherwise is known for his infectious energy and livewire vibe that can light up any event. While many would wonder what compelled the actor to put up such a post, a cursory look at the public response to his past releases would point to the actor feeling underappreciated. For Ranveer, 2022 was terrible year on the work front as two of his films tanked at the box-office, Jayeshbhai Jordaar and the recent Rohit Shetty directorial Cirkus. One user commented under the video, “Cirkus film pitneka sadma laga hai bhai ko (the trauma seems to stem from the poor response to Cirkus).” Another commented: “Comeback badiya hoga, king we believe in you, happy new year (you will have a great comeback).” Prior to this, his muchanticipated ensemble film, the sports drama 83 too sank at the box-office without a trace. The actor still has a big ticket release in the form of the Karan Johar directorial Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani, which stars Dharmendra, Jaya Bachchan, Alia Bhatt and Shabana Azmi.—IANS On your mark, get set...
