Purab Kohli is a proud father to Inaya, his first born with Lucy Payton, his girlfriend. When most people can’t stand up to societal pressure around having children outside of wedlock, Purab and Lucy decided to tie the knot in their own time, without rushing into it. But at the same time, they’re proud parents and don’t feel the need to hide anything about their newborn.

When Inaya was conceived, we were not married and it didn’t matter to me. When Lucy called me and said, ‘Hey we are having a baby, and I said wow. Let’s do it.’ 
Purab Kohli, Actor 

Purab and his fiance Lucy, who is a UK based yoga instructor, welcomed a baby girl during the filming of Rock On!! 2.

There was pressure to get married. My mother was the most concerned and my family did say you guys have to get married quickly, when she was pregnant. But I was adamant about not doing it because I never wanted my baby to feel that we got into a relationship because she was coming. Her coming into this world has transformed both our lives for the better. She is our love child and has bloomed even more love between both of us, and made me love life more. I don’t want her to ever feel that it was not meant to be. It was meant in every possible way, and she was a force of nature and nothing could stop her from coming into this world.

4. Ranveer Makes Switzerland Look Even Better As Its Brand Ambassador

Ranveer Singh is now the Indian ambassador for Switzerland Tourism. He was recently travelling across Zurich, Interlaken and other scenic parts of the country and his social media posts made us jealous as hell. It’s hard to say if the spunky actor is making the Swiss landscape look good, or the other way around. According to an IANS report, the actor can’t wait to go back to ski in the Swiss Alps.

I had such a great time on my trip to Switzerland this summer! I did some crazy things like sky diving and paragliding. Now that I am the official Brand Ambassador of Switzerland Tourism, I am just raring to go back in the winter and see what it looks like in the snow. I can’t wait to try the slopes of St. Moritz and Titlis Engelberg. It will be so much fun.

5. Pratyusha Blamed Her Parents For Her Misery, Says Rahul Raj Singh

Rahul Raj Singh, former boyfriend of the late TV actress Pratyusha Banerjee, has reacted strongly against a prominent Mumbai tabloid, that reported excerpts from their last conversation in order to accuse him of allegedly forcing her into prostitution.

Singh says that the transcript has been tampered with and partially reported to make him look guilty, when in fact Pratyusha was trying to suggest that it was her parents who were the main cause for her misery.

I am in no mood to take this lying down. This is not a serious allegation. It is a foolish allegation, belied by documented facts. In that conversation I had with Pratyusha she is clearly heard calling her father a ‘bhadwa’ and ‘behench*d’. She’s clearly heard saying, ‘Rahul, you love me so much.That’s why you’re taking all this.’ All this has been deleted from the published transcript of our conversation to make me look guilty.
