Akshay Kumar gets brutally trolled on Twitter for deleting old tweet about rising petrol prices during UPA regime 22.5.2018 DNA: Opinion
Akshay Kumar is one of the few Bollywood actors who's known for not mincing his words (much like his wife Twinkle Khanna). The actor has time and again, voiced his opinions on issues that concern the society at large. Now, in the current scenario, when the BJP is facing a lot of flak for the ever-increasing petrol and diesel prices, burning a hole in the pockets of the common man, Akshay Kumar is being trolled mercilessly on Twitter. Why you ask? Well, the actor apparently deleted one of his old tweets, in which he had criticised the rising petrol prices during the UPA regime, back in the year 2012.  "Guys, I think it's time to clean up your bicycles and hit the road! As per sourcs, expecting another petrol price hike", Akshay Kumar had tweeted on February 27, 2012. How did his old tweet surface again? Well, a parody account by the name of 'Unofficial Sususwamy' quoted that particular tweet of Akshay and wrote, "Akshay Sir, Big Fan! Can you please lend me your bycycle?

Yuvraj Singh's dismal IPL 2018: End of the road for one of India's greatest limited-overs player? 22.5.2018 DNA: Recent Columns
Few things are more painful than watching an ageing athlete falter as they try to summon up the old magic and Yuvraj Singh's fans have endured a shared agony over the course of this year's Indian Premier League (IPL). When India belatedly embraced Twenty20 cricket 12 years ago, Yuvraj's rise to greatness in the limited-overs format appeared just a matter of time. After all, few could hit the cricket ball as cleanly and as far as the southpaw did. And although Kevin Pietersen once ridiculed him as a "pie-chucker", Yuvraj's brand of left-arm spin was more than handy. When not doing either, Yuvraj torched the turf in the point region with an infectious zeal, a rare quality in an Indian squad not then known for their agility. He was a key cog in India's World Twenty20 triumph in South Africa in 2007 and was adjudged player-of-the-tournament in the team's victorious 50-over World Cup triumph four years later. He was unable to replicate that form in the IPL, though, and his stints with Kings XI Punjab, Pune ...
