Confused? Don't be. We have heard and watched Sai Pallavi and Dhanush's 'Rowdy Baby' which was a super-duper hit. And many stars created their own versions of the song. Now, here joins actress Navya Nair on the list. Navya was seen grooving to the song along her dancing partner and she was equally good with cinematic steps just as she often excels in classical ones.

Actor-politician Innocent firmly believes that he has great leadership qualities and that is what helped him to lead the actors' association, AMMA, for 18 long years. Innocent became the first actor from Kerala to be a Lok Sabha member after winning from the Chalakudy seat in 2014.

Ahead of the launch of Apple’s streaming service, Netflix CEO Reed Hastings has said his company will not integrate its services with the upcoming platform. “Apple’s a great company. (But) we want to have people watch our content on our service, and so we have chosen not to integrate into their services,” Hastings said at a press event here on Monday.
