Raging on: The row over Rahul Gandhi’s remark on Congress’ involvement in the 1984 anti-Sikh riots refuses to die down as Punjab CM Amarinder Singh waded into the war of words between the Akali Dal and Congress.

However, it seems like an extremely pertinent question to ask today, because Rishi Kapoor just made the sad announcement that the studio is up for sale.

Badal guilty? Former Punjab chief minister Parkash Singh Badal has been held responsible in the Justice (retd) Ranjit Singh Commission report on the 2015 sacrilege of the Guru Granth Sahib and the subsequent firing in Kotkapura and Behbal Kalan.

Agree or disagree?

On Tuesday, MK Stalin will become the new president of the DMK. Occupying the chair held for 49 years by his father, the late M Karunanidhi, will be the easy part.
