Throwback When Anil Ambani broke up with Tina Munim under family pressure

first_imgThe love story of former Bollywood actress Tina Munim and business tycoon Anil Ambani well could have been a plot of some Bollywood movie. Though the couple went through a lot of rough patches at the beginning of their relationship, once they got married, there was no looking back for the two. And three decades later, they have made our belief in love conquers all, even more, stronger.In a freewheeling chat with Simi Garewal, Tina Ambani and Anil Ambani had bared their souls out on their love story and how they reached the decision to marry. Anil and Tina met for the first time at a party where Anil was taken aback by seeing her in a black saree as it was quite unconventional for anyone to turn up for a wedding wearing black. Both were introduced to each other and Anil didn’t waste time and immediately asked her out. Tina, who was not looking out for a relationship then, politely turned him down.When many years later, they again met, Tina was left in awe of his personality and simplicity. Anil too was impressed by her beauty and genuineness. The duo started meeting more often and love-struck. However, when Anil’s family got the whiff of it, they weren’t too fond of the match. Anil’s family had certain notions about people from the film industry and they pressurised the two to stop seeing each other.Anil being an obedient son agreed and the duo called it off for some time. But, in their hearts, they were still together. Though the duo didn’t speak for four years, they never tried to get attached to anyone else. Meanwhile, Anil kept refusing all the proposals which were coming his way and finally managed to persuade his family to accept Tina into the family.last_img read more

Nonsubsidised LPG gas cylinders to cost Rs 100 less

first_imgNon-subsidised LPG gas cylinders will be available for Rs 637 per cylinder instead of Rs. 737.50.ReutersIn a major relief to households across the nation, the Indian Oil Corporation (IOC) has declared that the price of non-subsidised cooking gas cylinders (LPG) will be cheaper by Rs 100.50 per cylinder from Monday, July 1. With this, the non-subsidised LPG gas cylinder will be available for Rs 637 instead of Rs. 737.50.The decision to cut rates was taken in view of softening LPG prices in the international market and a favourable dollar-rupee exchange rate, according to a press release by IOC. “Price of Non-Subsidised LPG in Delhi will decrease by Rs 100.50 per cylinder from 1st July. Upfront cash payment by consumer of domestic LPG will reduce by Rs 100.50 per cylinder,” said IOC in a statement.Indian Oil Corporation: As domestic LPG prices are subsidized by the Government, the effective price after subsidy to consumer will be Rs 494.35 per cylinder for the month of July 2019.— ANI (@ANI) June 30, 2019The release further stated: “As domestic LPG prices are subsidised by the government, the effective price has come down to Rs 494.35 per cylinder with this rate revision. The balance amount of Rs 142.65 per cylinder would be borne as subsidy by the central government and transferred to the consumer’s bank account after the purchase of a refill.”The recent development, which has been welcomed by the households using LPG gas cylinders, comes days ahead of the Union Budget on July 5. The budget for the financial year ending March 2020 will be presented by Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman. This is also the first budget of the Narendra Modi government after BJP came back to power in a landslide election win.However, LPG saw a price hike of 3.65 percent with effect from June 1 and the recent cut comes exactly after a month. Indian Oil said that amounted to an increase of Rs 25 per cylinder as compared to the last month. In any case, depending on changes in the average international benchmark LPG prices and foreign exchange rates, the extent of the subsidy varies from month to month.last_img read more
