Excerpts:   How did you land a role in Tiger Zinda Hai? In the past five years I've built up quite a reputation for myself in commercials, theatre and feature films. This helps as my name does get banded around a lot, that and the fact that  I am one of very few established foreign actors living and working in India. So when one fine day I got a casting call from Yash Raj, naturally I thought the whole thing was a prank. The person at the other end of the line was asking me to wear a Kurta, and deliver an introduction in English as well as in Arabic (the closest to Arabic I can speak is Turkish).

Fresh from the capital infusion amounting to Rs 2.11 lakh crore by the government, there is not much that Indian banks are expecting from the Budget 2018-19.

New Delhi: A Delhi court on Wednesday rejected the bail plea of Kashmiri separatist leader Shabir Shah in a 2007 money laundering case related to alleged terror financing. Additional Sessions Judge Sidharth Sharma, who had in August last year denied the relief to Shah citing the ongoing probe, dismissed his fresh bail plea. In his bail application filed through advocate MS Khan, the accused had told the court that investigation into the case was complete as the agency has filed its charge sheet and there was no chance for Shah to hamper the probe. The court had on August 22 last year rejected Shah's earlier bail plea after the Enforcement Directorate (ED) said it was probing whether he had received money from countries such as Pakistan to promote terrorism in India. On November 15, the court had framed money laundering charges against Shah and alleged hawala dealer Mohammad Aslam Wani in the case. Both the accused have pleaded not guilty and claimed trial. The central probe agency, in its charge ...
