It is mid-week and the television industry is bustling with interesting news. From Divyanka Tripathi hitting back at troll calling her cunning over her comments on Sourabh Raaj Jain to Nikki Tamboli declaring that she won't be celebrating her birthday this year, here's what made headlines.

Divyanka Tripathi reacts to being called cunning for her comments on Sourabh Raaj Jain

Sourabh Raaj Jain's unexpected eviction from Khatron Ke Khiladi 11 has left fans of the actor as well as the show in shock. Arjun Bijlani, who had won the first 'K Medal', decided to use it and nominate Sourabh for the elimination round in his place. Unfortunately, he took the maximum time to complete the task and had to exit the show. This triggered an outrage on social media. 

Fans of Sourabh are not able to process it. Recently, a social media user criticised Divyanka Tripathi for initially supporting Arjun’s decision and then cheering for Sourabh. The user wrote, "@Divyanka_T was like cunningly smart. First she supported @Thearjunbijlani decision and then tried to be sweet by wishing @saurabhraajjain victory. Shame on her." Reacting to this, Divyanka said, "My dear, I shouldn't explain but since I'm so fond of @saurabhraajjain I will. I was sarcastic...I said many things before and after like he's a vegetarian which wasn't shown (for broadcasting rules maybe, which is justified). There's more to what you see on TV."

Hours later, Sourabh extended support to Divyanka and tweeted, "Hey @Divyanka_T you were so kind to me throughout, I still remember your sweet messages post Wht happened…..feelings are mutual." The actress then said, "Sourabh you are a pure soul and a rare find. There was so much more to you to offer in KKK. Eliminated too soon but won million hearts."

Nikki Tamboli to not celebrate her birthday this year

Nikki Tamboli lost her elder brother Jatin Tamboli untimely death due to COVID-19. He passed away on May 4 and was just 29 years old. The actress is yet to come to terms with the irreplaceable loss. With a heavy heart, Nikki got back to work immediately after Jatin's demise and shot for Khatron Ke Khiladi 11 in Cape Town. Now, Nikki, who will turn a year older on August 21, has decided to not celebrate her birthday from now on. 

In a statement on social media, Nikki requested her fans to not send cakes and pastries on her birthday. She further appealed to her fans to pray for her brother's soul and help the people in need. "I really would like to request all my Nikkians, my fans and friends to not send me any cakes or pastries on my birthday or before my birthday as I have decided to not cut cakes on my birthday from now on till years to come. I recently lost my brother and the next day is Rahki, so I really hope you'll respect my decision and rather pray for my brother's soul, help the people in need and feed those who actually needs it. Thank you," Nikki said. 

In multiple interviews, Nikki said that her brother's demise affected her and it hampered her performance in Khatron Ke Khiladi 11.  

Amid legal battle with husband Karan Mehra, Nisha Rawal talks about 'chains of inhibitions clawing' her skin

Over 2 months ago, Nisha Rawal accused her husband Karan Mehra of domestic violence. Karan was arrested by the police but was out on bail after a few hours. Both Karan and Nisha levelled serious allegations against each other and shared their respective side of stories in the media. Now, amid the legal battle, the actress shared a stunning picture of herself on Instagram. In the picture, she can be seen in a golden dress with spaghetti straps and a plunging neckline. Her hair is done into a neat bun. 

Nisha's cryptic caption read, "Stepped out that door that had those chains of inhibitions clawing my skin through my bones! Didn’t leave my old self behind, just carried it on my newly-found shoulders, whose strength I wasn’t aware of! A moment to thank my mind, body and soul to never have left my side! I am my own bestie for life. Keeping the faith!"
