By Tricitynews Reporter
Chandigarh 30th August:- Mayank Gandhi, who is currently seen as the mentally challenged Nandu in Zee TV's poignant social drama Kaala Teeka, tied the knot with his Delhi-based girlfriend - TV actress Hunar Hale this Sunday, 28th August in Delhi. The actor refused to leave the shoot for a vacation after his marriage since he has made an entry in the show only 10 days ago.  A thorough professional that he is, Mayank has decided to forego his honeymoon plans for now and focus on the shoot. The cast and crew of the show are touched by the actor's thoughtful approach.
Mayank said that his wife, Hunar and he naturally excited about the new journey we have embarked on and need everyone's blessings. However, we are both busy with our prior commitments and it is not professional to take off on a pleasure trip at the expense of our work. He is back to shoot for Kaala Teeka from 31st August, only two days after his marriage which people usually don't do (laughs). He is fortunate that he got a buddy in his life partner, who understands every situation.
Get ready to witness some high-voltage drama on your favorite show Kaala Teeka, where Kali has informed everyone that she has lost her memory and doesn't remember anything before her accident. This will help her gain Yug's sympathies and she will get close to him. On the other hand, Vishwavir will get to know that Kali is hiding her marriage with Nandu. Will he be able to use it as a weapon to throw Kali out of the house.

Team of Punjabi Film ‘Toofan Singh’ blames Censor Board for Not Issuing Certificate

By Tricitynews Reporter
Chandigarh 30th August:- The team of Punjabi film ‘Toofan Singh’ held a press conference here today and raised many questions on the activities of the Censor Board. The team blamed the board for not issuing any certificate to the film without any solid reason. The producer of the film Jarnail Singh, director Baghel Singh, main lead Ranjit Bawa, Bollywood actor Yashpal Sharma, Sardar Sohi and Suneeta Dhir were all present here.
Co-producer and director of the film said that the film is based on the life of Bhai Jugraj Singh aka Toofan Singh. According to him, the film has been made by producer Dilbagh Singh under the banner of Royal Cine Arts has nothing to do with any particular religion or community. Bhai Jugraj Singh was a warrior who fought with anti-social elements and freed the society from many evils. This film doesn’t pin-point on any religion or individual’s feelings. The Censor Board is not issuing any certificate and has no reason for that.
The team of the film told that a five-member committee of the CBFC watched the film initially out of which three members denied issuing the certificate and hence recommended the film to the Chairman and higher authorities. After watching the film, the Chairman and higher level officials didn’t take any decision on the certification. The film was later sent to the Tribunal from where the final decision is awaited.
 Lead actor of the film Ranjit Bawa said that he worked very hard for this character. There is nothing in the film that would hurt anyone’s feelings. CBFC is just supposed to issue the certificate and rest of the decision should be in audiences’ hands.
 Yashpal Sharma also condemned the poor attitude of the board and said that many social realities don’t reach the masses because of such decisions. Sardar Sohi said that such activities are nothing but a fraud with the art. In the end the whole team said in one tone that they will fight every battle to get the film released.

By Tricitynews Reporter
Chandigarh 30th August:-FC Goa has confirmed the re-signing of central defenders, Gregory Arnolin and Luciano Sobrosa and striker Rafael Coelho for the third season of the Hero Indian Super League. Gregory has been the mainstay in FC Goa's defence from the first season. The defender is blessed with astute physical prowess and the ability to read the game well. In partnership with World Cup winning defender, Lucio, he was one of the major reasons the team had a successful run to the finals of the second edition. Gregory is also a potential goal threat for his side especially at set pieces, having netted twice in the first season and once in the second season with powerful headers.
The Martinique International endeared himself to the fan base with brilliant displays on the pitch and will be looking forward to going one step further in the third season after finishing up with runners up medal in the second season.
He said that he is very happy to sign with FC Goa again. He has been at this club from the first season and we have made it to the semi-finals and then the finals. This year he hopes to be able to win the ISL with FC Goa for the fans. He will give his best so that FC Goa can be champions of the ISL.
Brazilian defender Luciano Sobrosa was an able understudy to both Gregory and Lucio in the second season. He made seven solid appearances for Zico's team and impressed the legendary coach during this stint. The 37 year old has been a veteran in the Indian football circuit with stints at various Indian clubs like Salgaocar, Sporting Goa and most recently, Mohun Bagan.
Coelho was signed mid-season last year after an injury to striker Victor Simoes ruled him out for the season. He was an instant hit with the fans with his tireless work ethic on the pitch. His constant threat in the box was a huge boost to the team in their run to the finals of the tournament.
