“With lessons learnt from our project in the slums of Mumbai, we hope to take this movement across the nation. This is a three-pronged information, education and communication mission towards eradicating Hepatitis-B from India,” said Samir R. Shah, general secretary, National Liver Foundation.
The project has been launched in collaboration with United Way of Mumbai and AmeriCares India and has the support of union health ministry and Rotary.

Ujjawala Sharma is the name which came up in headlines after it became clear that Rohit Shekhar is the Biological Son of Congress Leader Narayan Dutt Tiwari. Ujjawala Sharma, though younger to Tiwari is a Congress Activist and was General Secretary of All India Young Women Congress. She allegedly had extra-Marital Affair with N D Tiwari in 90s.
"Believing the repeated requests and being convinced of the love and affection shown by Tiwari hailing from a respectable and prestigious family, I submitted to emotional pressure and that culminated in the birth of Rohit Shekhar,” Ujjwala Sharma said in her submission.
Referring to her association with Tiwari, Sharma submitted that their relationship developed as Tiwari used to visit her when she was living with her father.
"Tiwari was a frequent visitor to the house of my father who was a member of parliament and we used to meet frequently as he was the president of the All India Youth Congress and I was general secretary of the All India Young Women Congress,” Sharma said in her submission.
“Though there was a considerable difference in the age, Tiwari kept trying to win my confidence and establish a close relationship when I was having a marital dispute with my husband," Sharma said.
“Every time we used to meet, he used to insist that he is issue-less and since his wife could not have a child on account of some physical problem, we should have child of our own. And he impressed upon me that he would complete the formalities of marriage after their divorces,” she said.
Sharma, legally separated from her husband, alleged in her plea that Tiwari started losing interest in Rohit after becoming an MP and started threatening her.
After the death of his wife in 1993, Tiwari had once again assured her that he would acknowledge Rohit publicly as his son by way of adoption but “when reminded in 1995 he refused to talk to me”, Sharma said.

The opening at multiplexes was similar to Bol Bachchan but with a less shows as compared to Bol Bachchan. Multiplexes in Delhi NCR, Mumbai, Pune, Ahmedabad all opened to good houses.
The single screen opening was a bit lower but that is expected as the cast is not too strong but overall it should post a healthy first day total on strength of multiplexes. It is by the far the best opening of all Riteish Deshmukh or Tusshar Kapoor films where they have been the solo leads.
Kyaa Kool Hai Hum released in 2005 which did very well and grossed around 15 crore nett which was a very good total at the time
