In 2001, a young, ginger-haired, witty girl from the 'Harry Potter' series stole our hearts with her presence of mind and brilliant acting skills. At the age of 11, Emma Watson made her debut in 'Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone'. The film broke records for opening-day sales and opening-weekend figures, and became the highest-grossing film of 2001. The young actress, in particular, received accolades for her performance, often being called 'admirable', 'the girl who stole the show', and bagged five nominations for her performance in the same film. Multiple newspapers and tabloids called her performance 'charismatic', the 11-year-old Watson had already made a mark for herself, impressing more people than one. She has managed to blossom into a seasoned actress, who is much more than just a pretty face.

Last week the 'Bigg Boss 13' house sparked a lot of controversies with Siddharth Dey passing nasty comments at Arti Singh and Sidharth Shukla who lashed out at him, allegedly calling his 'Dil Se Dil Tak' co-star and co-contestant Rashami Desai 'gatar'. This also got dragged in the Weekend Ka Vaar episode with Salman Khan. Siddharth Dey and other male contestants were bashed by the host for misbehaving with the women. However the 'Balika Vadhu' actor objected to Rashami's accusation of touching her inappropriately claiming he did not do any such thing and she came in his way. This had happened during their argument in the kitchen area when Sidharth happened to touch Rashami's shoulder which she alleges was intentional. Siddharth has anger issues and the BB 13 audience are well aware of that but the image he is trying to build by defending Arti Singh against Siddharth Dey, even going on to threaten him with a slap, is however questioned by some fans. Sidharth also has been … [Read more...] about Bigg Boss 13: “He Would Not Only Touch Me Inappropriately But..”- Sidharth Shukla’s ‘Balika Vadhu’ Co-Star Sheetal Khandal Alleges He Touched Her Inappropriately!
