Virat Kohli reclaims No. 1 spot
'I'm ageing in reverse' — Sonakshi Sinha on her eight-year run
Calcutta:India captain Virat Kohli has reclaimed the top spot in the latest ICC Test Rankings for batsmen after his brilliant show in the third Test against England in Nottingham. In reaching the top, Kohli has reached a personal best of 937 rating points. The 29-year-old's knocks of 97 and 103 not only helped his team reduce the deficit in the five-match series to 1-2 after winning the third Test by 203 runs, but has also lifted him to the 11th best ever in terms of rating points. Kohli, who claimed the top spot for the first time after the opening Test in Birmingham but dropped to second after the Lord's Test, is now only one point behind a group of four in the all-time list.
Almost exactly eight years ago, we first saw Sonakshi Sinha on the big screen opposite Salman Khan in Dabangg. By the end of this year, she’ll be shooting the third instalment of the hit franchise as Rajjo. Before that, the 31-year-old actress has stepped into another franchise — director Mudassar Aziz’s Happy Phirr Bhag Jayegi, a sequel to the 2016 sleeper hit Happy Bhag Jayegi, that starred Diana Penty in the title role. We caught up with Sonakshi in the office of Eros Entertainment to chat about her new film, sharing screen space with Rekha and reuniting with Salman’s Chulbul Pandey.
