While the 2019 Lok Sabha election season came to an end today, with the conclusion of the seventh phase, the enthusiasm of Bollywood celebrities, in asking young voters to come out and cast their ballot, did not seeming to wane down. Farhan Akhtar, who has been sitting out of film acting lately, took to Twitter to encourage voting on the last day, which falls today. However, he did not realise that the specific electorate he was pleading to "choose love not hate" had already cast their ballot a week prior, on May 12.

In another news, on Saturday night, hours after the first look poster of Laxmmi Bomb was released by Akshay Kumar on social media, Raghava Lawrence stepped down as the director of project. Lawrence took to Twitter to inform the film community that the poster was unveiled without informing him beforehand and that he felt "disrespected" and "disappointed" when he got to know about it from a "third person."

Anil Kapoor celebrated his 35 wedding anniversary with wife Sunita today. Blessings and wishes for the couple poured in from all quarters, including adorable wishes from daughter Sonam Kapoor and colleague and friend Farah Khan.

Farhan Akhtar, in a tweet on Sunday, fervently asked the residents of Bhopal to vote. Little did he know that he will be trolled for voicing his opinion over a good cause, all because he was a week late! He also quoted the infamous Bhopal Gas Tragedy to stress more on the point.
