Bollywood actor Ananya Pandaywas appreciated by her fans after a video of her attempting to help a paparazzo went viral online. Ananya, who turned 24 on October 30, hosted a dinner party where guests included Aryan Khan, Siddhant Chaturvedi, Navya Nanda, and others. After dinner, Ananya and Navya were making their way to their car when a paparazzo stumbled and fell in an attempt to click their pictures.

Ananya is heard saying, “Sambhal ke, sambhal ke.” She then asked him, “theek ho na (Are you fine)?” Fans praised her attitude and the fact that she extended her hand to help him stand up. One of the fans wrote, “Ananya is really a kind hearted girl,” while another fan said, “I like her attitude.”

However, the rising pap culture in India has received different reactions from the celebs. At a recent event, Jaya Bachchan reportedly wished for a photographer to trip and fall while taking her picture. Jaya, who was attending the Lakme Fashion Wweek with Navya, did not like the presence of paps at the event. One of the pap stumbled while clicking her picture and Jaya said, “Serves you right. I hope you double up and fall!” 

On the work front, Ananya was last seen in the film Liger opposite Vijay Devarakonda. The actor has interesting projects in the pipeline. She has Kho Gaye Hum Kaha with Siddhant Chaturvedi and Adarsh Gourav and Dream Girl 2 with Ayushmann Khurrana.

A photographer whose work documents and celebrates the homoerotic is among the winners of this year’s Governor General Awards in Visual and Media Arts.


Evergon, 77, said he was hopeful he’d receive one of the Artistic Achievement Awards eventually, but he’s “gobsmacked” that it’s actually happened.

Over the course of his career, which is now in its fifth decade, the artist born Albert Jay Lunt said he’s seen attitudes towards his work shift alongside the perception of the LGBTQ community.

“There’s pieces that were scandal 40 and 50 years ago, and there seems to be no scandal with those pieces at the moment,” he said in a phone interview ahead of Tuesday’s announcement.

“Matter of fact, there has been no scandal.”

A retrospective of the Montreal artist’s work is on display at the Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec in Quebec City. The museum describes his art as audacious and carnal, exploring issues of sexuality and the body as they intersect with identity.

His portfolio features photos of men that can veer towards the pornographic, including nude self-portraits.

He also created a series of nude photographs of his octogenarian mother, which the Musée national des beaux-arts says “renews the representation of the aging body as few artists have done.”

“She was the one challenging me: ‘I want the photos made of me now. I’m 80, I want them now,’” he recalled. “It was so fun to have them commissioned by her, as opposed to me whining: ‘Can we do this?’”

His mother died several years ago, he said, and he regrets that she’s not here to witness this recognition of his work.

Actor Jonathan Majors was arrested Saturday in New York on charges of strangulation, assault and harassment, authorities said. On Sunday, a lawyer for Majors said there’s evidence that he is “entirely innocent.”


New York City police said that Majors, star of the recently released Creed III and Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania, was involved in a domestic dispute with a 30-year-old woman. Police responded around 11 a.m. Saturday to a 911 call inside an apartment in the Manhattan neighborhood of Chelsea.

A representative for Majors denied any wrongdoing by the actor.

“He has done nothing wrong,” the representative said in an email to the AP on Saturday. “We look forward to clearing his name and clearing this up.”

On Sunday, a lawyer for Majors, Priya Chaudhry, came out more forcefully, saying Majors “is provably the victim of an altercation with a woman he knows” and blamed the incident on the woman having “an emotional crisis.”

Chaudhry said there was evidence clearing Majors, including “video footage from the vehicle where this episode took place, witness testimony from the driver and others who both saw and heard the episode, and most importantly, two written statements from the woman recanting these allegations.”

An email seeking additional comment from the NYPD based on Chaudhry’s assertions was not immediately returned Sunday.

In the meantime, the U.S. Army suspended its TV ad campaign featuring Majors that was intended to target younger audiences. The Army Enterprise Marketing Office said in a statement Sunday that the U.S. Army is “deeply concerned by the allegations surrounding his arrest.”

“While Mr. Majors is innocent until proven guilty, prudence dictates that we pull our ads until the investigation into these allegations is complete,” the office said in a statement.

Majors is one of the fastest rising stars in Hollywood. After breaking through in 2019′s The Last Black Man in San Francisco, Majors has starred in Da 5 Bloods, The Harder They Fall and last year’s Devotion. He also stars in the recent Sundance Film Festival entry Magazine Dreams, which Searchlight Pictures is to release in December.

On his Instagram story, Renner shared the same video with the same caption.

Renner’s snowplow accident left the actor with more than 30 broken bones after he was crushed by a seven-ton PistenBully snowcat. He sustained “blunt chest trauma and orthopedic injuries” and underwent multiple surgeries.

At the time of the accident, Renner was trying to prevent a family member from being hit by the snowplow. Though the family member was saved from injury, Renner was pulled under the vehicle and crushed.
