The first episode of Nach Baliye 9 just aired and we are still recovering from the high energy of the entire episode. Anita Hassanandani Ready and Rohit Reddy who are deemed as the strongest contestants on the show gave us one of the most power-packed performances of the episode filled with ample amount of oomph, parkour, aerial and lifts.With feathers, frills, and voluminous hair the couple looked every bit from the 70s. They danced to the quintessential cabaret number by Helen, ‘Piya Tu Ab To Aaja’ which compelled the audiences, judges, and co-contestants to stand up and dance. Apart from the act that caught judges Raveena Tandon and Ahmed Khan’s by surprise was Rohit’s confidence and dance on the stage.A non-dancer, Rohit had earlier mentioned that he was made to stand behind at his wedding sangeet performance. Just like the judges, we refuse to believe that story. He looked every bit made for the stage and camera, Raveena shocked and surprised said, ‘I am flabbergasted, I couldn’t take my eyes off Rohit, he completely owned the performance, Rohit was like an atom bomb that burst on stage.’ She ended with telling Anita, ‘Aapke ghar mai hi competition hai’ (The competition is in your house)Anita, popular for her roles in Yeh Hai Mohabbatein and Naagin, was offered the show previously as well. “Anita was approached even in the earlier seasons, however, it didn’t materialise. This year, the makers have offered her a good amount to participate in the show, which she couldn’t refuse,” BollywoodLife quoted her as saying.In an interaction with IANS, Anita had opened up about her desire to be a part of the show and was quoted as saying, “I love to dance and I always wanted to be a part of Nach Baliye but couldn’t take it up earlier owing to prior commitments.”We wish them all the luck for their upcoming performances.

File photo : ReutersSri Lanka announced Friday it would establish new police posts and step up patrols at popular resorts after a spate of sexual attacks and violence targeting foreign tourists.Police chief Pujith Jayasundara said 20 new stations would be established at holiday hotspots to protect visitors from touts and criminals, despite concerns his force was already overstretched.”I wish we had more men and resources for this job, but we are making adjustments to our deployments to ensure better productivity,” Jayasundara said.He added the measures were decided after a Dutch tourist was sexually harassed and several other tourists were assaulted by a gang at a hotel in the southern resort town of Mirissa last week.Five Israeli tourists were beaten up in the same area this week and 14 men have been arrested over the two incidents, police said. Local media reports have catalogued several sexual harassment complaints by foreign tourists, with many reluctant to make official complaints for fear of drawn-out court proceedings.Tourism Minister John Amaratunga appealed to victims to come forward and promised to cover the expenses of those who return to the island to help identify perpetrators.The US State Department warned last year that sexual crimes against women were on the rise in Sri Lanka.While most reported incidents involved non-physical acts such as cat calls and verbal harassment, there were several serious incidents of sexual threats, groping and rape.”Incidents have also occurred at tourist beaches and smaller hotels in the Southern province,” the travel advisory noted.In 2014, a Sri Lankan court sentenced a local politician and three of his supporters to 20 years in jail for the 2011 murder of British tourist Khuram Shaikh on Christmas Eve and gang rape of his Russian partner.Shaikh, a 32-year-old Red Cross worker, had tried to stop a brawl at a southern beach resort when a gang attacked and killed him.His girlfriend, who was knocked unconscious in the brutal assault, returned to Sri Lanka in 2014 to give evidence and identified one of her attackers in court.
