The R1.3-billion, 45 000-seater Peter Mokaba Stadium in Polokwane is ready to be handed over to Fifa, with Limpopo province declaring itself “fully prepared” for the 2010 Fifa World Cup.

What on earth were Bollywood actors Shreyas Talpade and Mahie Gill looking for in people’s bags in Delhi?Well, Shreyas and Mahie were in the capital to promote their upcoming film Aagey Se Right and did everything to convince Delhiites about their new on-screen roles.While Mahie plays a journalist in the film, Shreyas is a clumsy police officer searching for his lost gun. “I play a laidback cop who has lost his gun,” says Shreyas. “And Mahie is a glamorous reporter who is trying to help me (find the gun).”Now with a glamorous journalist like Mahie, her oomph factor could come in handy to a silly cop like Shreyas.
