The nominal GDP growth for the second quarter also fell to 6.1% as compared to 8% in the previous quarter.

Green stand: A day after taking oath as Maharashtra chief minister, Uddhav Thackeray on Friday announced a stay on construction of metro car shed in Mumbai's green lung Aarey Colony, where strong protests had erupted last month against the cutting of trees for the work. Thackeray, however, clarified he has not stayed the work of the Mumbai metro rail project itself. Read more.

National shame: A 22-year-old veterinarian, whose charred body was found on Thursday near Shadnagar town in Telangana, was suspected to have been raped and murdered by four persons who offered to help her repair her punctured two-wheeler. Read more.

Forced apology: BJP MP Pragya Thakur had to apologise twice Lok Sabha on Friday for her remarks glorifying Nathuram Godse even as she asserted that she had never described Mahatma Gandhi's assassin as a patriot. Read more.

New candidate: After Trinamool Congress, sources say poll strategist Prashant Kishor may head the DMK’s campaign for the Tamil Nadu assembly elections scheduled for 2021 as negotiations are in the final stages.

The 1979 motion picture didn’t just come a cropper, it particularly left Rajini followers disheartened because of his role – a villain to begin with, he would turn into a friend of Kamal, but essentially playing second fiddle. Rajinikanth, by then a celebrity, was already commanding a loyal fan following, despite being a late entrant to cinema. Exactly forty years later, the Rajini-Kamal duo – after doing over a dozen films together in the 1970s – might stage a comeback again, this time in the political arena. Kavitha Muralidharan writes on whether the duo can recreate the cine magic for a political blockbuster. Read more.
