Watch Judwaa 2 trailer: Varun Dhawan’s twin act is a total dose of nostalgia

Everyone in the past, loved Salman Khan in the movie ‘Judwaa’. If you are one of them and still listen to the ‘oonchi hai building’ song then hold your heart.

Judwaa 2 trailer is finally here, and needless to say, Varun Dhawan is playing geeky Raja and quirky Prem. While Judwaa tickled the funny bones of movie buffs and found a place in Bollywood’s most iconic and clean comedies, Judwaa 2 has surely gone one notch higher in terms of look and grandeur.

And adding to that is the two leading ladies Jacqueline Fernandez and Taapsee Pannu who are totally killing with their glamorous looks.

The movie will also have the 90’s block-buster songs, Oonchi hai Building and Tan Tana Tan rehashed by Anu Malik himself. There’s a buzz doing the rounds that in the scene, Salman twins meet with the Varun twins, who are also on their honeymoon. One can only imagine the confusion that will then unfold. Imagining the scene itself is making us laugh. The movie is set to release on September 29.

Union government to double Metro network in 18 months, add 4 new cities on map

NEW DELHI: In a major fillip to urban transport, the Union government is all set to double the metro rail network over the next 18 months, adding four new cities to the metro map. The biggest gainers would be cities in BJP-ruled states, viz. Lucknow, Ahmedabad and Nagpur. Lucknow Metro would be the first off the block as it has received safety clearance and would be inaugurated within this month.

Election-bound Gujarat would get its first 6.3 km stretch in the capital city Ahmedabad next month. These two stretches would be followed by 28.4 km stretch in Delhi and 28 km in Hyderabad in September.

By March 2019, just two months ahead of parliamentary elections, 19 new sections in nine cities would be commissioned, adding 313 kms to the 370-km metro network. This translates to 313 kms made operational in 19 months as compared to 370 kms made operational over 33 years in eight cities since the first metro service began in Kolkata in 1984.

This is expected to be a major election pitch in urban centres. A senior ministry of housing and urban affairs official told ET, “Our cities are grappling with traffic jams and people are spending a lot of time on the roads. At such a time an expansion of comfortable metro network comes as a fillip to public transport. This has been aided by an increase in budgetary provision for metro rail projects.”

As per statistics provided by ministry of housing and urban affairs (MHUA), there has been a 158%hike in budgetary provision for metro projects during the last three years over the previous three years under Congress-led UPA government.

The budgetary provision between 2012 and 2015 for metro projects was Rs 16,565 cr, which has been increased to Rs 42,696 crore during 2015-18. At present, metro services are available in Delhi (217 kms), Bengaluru (42.3 kms), Kolkata (27.39 kms), Chennai (27.36 kms), Jaipur (9 kms), Kochi (13.3 kms), Mumbai Metro Line 1 (11.4 kms), Mumbai Mono Rail Phase 1 (9 kms) and Gurugram Rapid Metro (11.60 kms).

Infosys shares extend losses after CEO quits

MUMBAI (Reuters) – Shares of Infosys Ltd fell as much as 4.6 percent on Monday to a near three-year low, slumping for a second consecutive session, after brokerages including Nomura downgraded the stock following the resignation of its chief executive.

Shares slumped 9.6 percent on Friday after CEO Vishal Sikka unexpectedly resigned after a long-running feud with the company’s founders, wiping out $3.45 billion off Infosys’ market value.

Nomura downgraded the stock to “reduce”, saying the uncertainty over Infosys’ management could hamper long-term growth, while expressing worries that the tussle between the founder and promoters could escalate.

The concerns about Infosys’ future trumped the company’s approval on Saturday of a 130 billion rupees ($2.03 billion) share buyback.

As of 0421 GMT, Infosys shares were down 2.5 percent, hitting their lowest since September 2014.

($1 = 64.0525 Indian rupees)
