Aamir Khan's Dangal is closing 2016 with an almighty bang but it's his colleague Salman Khan who has been placed number one on Forbes India' list of 100 celebrities. Salman, 51, dropped to the second spot last year behind Shah Rukh Khan but is back on top this year, courtesy his blockbuster film Sultan. Shah Rukh Khan is at second place. Between SRK and Salman, the top spot on this list has been occupied by a Khan for years. Aamir Khan, whose Dangal has released outside of the time parameters of the list, has dropped out of the top 10 to the 14th spot. Aamir didn't have a film out last year - Dangal is his only release since 2014's PK. Heartwarmingly, Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra, the two women who put India on the global showbiz map this year, are at #6 and #8 on the list, above Amitabh Bachchan and Hrithik Roshan. Akshay Kumar is at fourth spot and the other places in the top 10 are taken by cricketers - Virat Kohli at #3, M S Dhoni at #5 and Sachin Tendulkar at #7.

We'll insert a question here - where is Rajinikanth? This might shock you, it certainly did us, but Rajinikanth is way down on the list at #30. The rankings are calculated on the basis of earnings and fame - it seems that Rajinikanth is outranked on both counts by several other stars. His earnings are reported at Rs 35 crore, fame-wise he is ranked 53. We'll leave you to mull over that seeming impossibility - Rajinikanth is, undoubtedly, the star of stars in India and this year, he made the blockbuster Kabali.


If you are wondering who's been ranked above Rajinikanth - Kapil Sharma, Ranveer Singh and A R Rahman are at positions 11, 12 and 13; between Aamir and Rajinikanth, the list is occupied by Arijit Singh, Rohit Sharma, Yuvraj Singh, Sonam Kapoor, Ranbir Kapoor, Sonakshi Sinha, Shahid Kapoor, Madhuri Dixit, Shikhar Dhawan, Jacqueline Fernandez, Katrina Kaif, Suresh Raina, R Ashwin, Shreya Ghoshal and Sania Mirza. Crazy, right? We know!

Salman and Shah Rukh's earnings are at over Rs 200 crore and they are #2 and #3 in terms of fame. So who's most famous? Virat Kohli. Salman, Shah Rukh, Amitabh Bachchan and Akshay Kumar all made it to Forbes' list of 20 highest paid actors in the world this year. Deepika Padukone was ranked 10 on the equivalent list of female stars and Priyanka Chopra was in eighth place on the list of highest paid TV actresses.

Najeeb Jung's resignation: BJP blames Arvind Kejriwal government, Congress says 'exit unceremonious

Najeeb Jung's resignation: BJP blames Arvind Kejriwal government, Congress says 'exit unceremonious



NEW DELHI: The resignation of Najeeb Jung+ as lieutenant governor on Thursday caught Delhi's political circle by surprise with the Congress terming the exit "unceremonious" and the BJP claiming he was "upset" with the AAP government. 

Najeeb Jung's resignation


Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal said the resignation came as a surprise+ to him. Kejriwal wished Najeeb jung best for his future endeavours.

Leader of opposition in the Delhi assembly Vijender Gupta said a BJP delegation had met the lieutenant governor on Wednesday over delimitation of municipal wards when Jung had "expressed" his displeasure with the Kejriwal government.

"Even then (yesterday) he was upset with the AAP government stalling work. But we did not foresee this. He told us that he was going a week-long leave. Delhi needed him," Gupta said.

Union home secretary Rajiv Mehrishi said Jung has a meeting scheduled with him on Friday.

"The LG met me day before yesterday but he did not give any indication of submitting his resignation. Another meeting of mine with the LG is scheduled for Friday (tomorrow)... I have come to know about his resignation only through media," Mehrishi said.


Delhi Congress chief Ajay Maken sought the response of the Centre over Jung's "unceremonious exit" while party leader PC Chacko suggested the resignation might be due to BJP's pressure.
"Was he removed to bring someone who is close to RSS? Was it done considering the upcoming municipal polls? Jung is an able administrator," Maken told reporters.


"BJP never takes independent stand as far as the office of Governor is concerned and this is putting many a governors in difficulty. May be this is behind the resignation," Chacko said.

Gujarat University wants HC to hear PM Narendra Modi’s degree case



Gujarat University wants HC to hear PM Narendra Modi’s degree case

The Gujarat University, which has filed a petition in the high court seeking quashing of a Central Information Commission (CIC) order to provide information on Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s degree, on Thursday insisted that a division bench should hear the matter. Arguing before a division bench of Chief Justice R Subhash Reddy and Justice V M Pancholi, Additional Solicitor General Tushar Mehta requested that the bench – which had passed an order providing ad-interim relief to the university on July one – should hear the matter. This was, however, opposed by the lawyer representing Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, who is one of the respondents in the case.

Earlier, the varsity's petition for interim stay was not accepted by the court of Justice Vora, after which the university approached the division bench of the high court which granted the stay.

Kejriwal’s lawyer I A Syed said the single bench of Justice S H Vora where the petition was first heard, should continue to hear the case. He said the division bench has already granted ad-interim relief to the petitioner, and the matter should now continue to be heard by the court of Justice Vora so that in the event of the order going in favour of the Gujarat University, they would have the option of appealing before the division bench. The matter will again come up for hearing next Tuesday.



Earlier, the varsity’s petition for interim stay was not accepted by the court of Justice Vora, after which the university approached the division bench of the high court which granted the stay. Apart from Information Commissioner M Sridhar Acharyulu and the Centre are also respondents in the case.

The Gujarat University had challenged the April 29 CIC order directing it to provide a copy of the degree to Kejriwal under RTI, saying it was not heard in the matter and hence the principle of natural justice was violated. The CIC’s order came a day after Kejriwal wrote a letter to Acharyulu saying he does not object to the government records about him being made public and wondered why the Commission wants to “hide” information on Modi’s educational degree.

The Information Commissioner had treated Kejriwal’s letter as an RTI application and passed the order.
