Half of the eligible Lucknowites are now fully vaccinated against Covid (taken both doses), says the health department data.

Besides, the state capital crossed the 52-lakh (5.2 million) mark in the total Covid vaccine doses administered since January 16 when the inoculation started nationwide.

Against a target of over 37.4 lakh (3.74 million), the number of Lucknowites who have taken both doses of the Covid vaccine stood at 18.82 lakh (1.88 million) till 7pm on Wednesday.

Till now, 33,35,779 people in Lucknow have got their first dose, which is over 87% of the target population.

During the day, over 18,000 beneficiaries took their second dose in the state capital on Wednesday.

Health officials say they are making efforts to administer at least one dose to all the eligible people by December-end. Several campaigns are being run to motivate people for taking the Covid vaccine jab.

“People are coming on time for their second dose. This is increasing the vaccination coverage in the state capital,” said Dr Manoj Agrawal, the chief medical officer of Lucknow.

He also said, “Apart from running Covid vaccination centres till 10pm, mobile vans facilitate vaccination under the cluster model for those who are unable to move out of their homes.”

“With a major chunk of the eligible population taking their second dose now, we can cross the 90% mark by January,” said Dr Abhishek Shukla, secretary general, association of international doctors.

Lucknow tops all 75 districts in Uttar Pradesh and experts say vaccination coverage in the state capital is essential to check the spread of the Covid infection.

“Lucknow has a major floating population that visits it for a day or two for some work and goes back. If all Lucknowites are vaccinated, they will remain safe and will not spread the infection,” said Dr PK Gupta.

Nicolas Cage is about to join the underworld and transform into the most famous vampire of all time.

The National Treasure star has been cast to play Dracula in the upcoming film Renfield.

The monster movie will see Nicholas Hoult star in the titular role of Dracula’s henchman.

While plot details are still being kept under wraps, the project is set to take place in the modern-day and have a comedic tone to it, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Sitting in the director’s chair will be Chris McKay, who recently directed Chris Pratt in Amazon Prime Video’s The Tomorrow War. 

At the helm of the movie as producers will be The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman, David Alpert, Bryan Furst, Sean Furst and Samantha Nisenboim.

Hoult’s role is based on a character from Bram Stoker’s original 1897 Dracula novel. 

An inmate in an insane asylum, Renfield is believed to be suffering from delusions as doctors don’t realise that his trauma comes from being the vampire lord’s servant. 

The same role was previously played by Tom Waits and Sam Barnett respectively in the ‘90s classic Bram Stoker’s Dracula and Penny Dreadful.

Renfield is part of Universal’s latest efforts to put out more monster flicks after the recent success of Elisabeth Moss’s The Invisible Man. 

Also in the works are The Wolfman (starring Ryan Gosling) and an adaptation of Van Helsing.

Cage will next be seen playing a fictionalised version of himself in The Unbearable Weight Of Massive Talent, an action-comedy also starring Pedro Pascal, Sharon Horgan, Tiffany Haddish and Neil Patrick Harris, expected to be released next year. 

Hoult was last seen reprising his role as the former emperor of Russia, Peter, in The Great opposite Elle Fanning’s Catherine.

However, at this point in the plot, it doesn’t seem like this will be the last of the web series and we will surely get a season 2. But that’s a topic for another time, let’s focus on the season finale for now.

Episode 8 is all set to arrive on December 1, 2021. As usual, you can start watching it from the usual 2:00 PM Indian Standard Time (IST) onwards.

Like previous episodes, this episode is also expected to have a runtime of around 15-20 minutes — this has been the norm for the series, with just the first episode being the exception to this rule.

BB’s debut series has been nothing short of a sensational hit. And we’re so glad the episodes are being released on YouTube. So we see no reason as to why the season finale will be releasing on YT as well. The great thing about YouTube is that the content on it is completely free.

Once Dhindora episode 8 is out, all you have to do is head to the “BB Ki Vines” YouTube channel. You will find the new episode waiting for you right there.

What Will Happen In ‘Dhindora’ Episode 8?

Episode 7 titled “Toota Ek Tara” had Bablu explain to Bhuvan why he faked his memory loss. The reason being, after not winning the 11 Crore lottery, he wanted to check his family’s reaction but gets overwhelmed by pressure. So Bhuvan convinces Bablu to come clean with everything in front of his family. This causes a new wave of misery to come over everyone, as any hope of the 11 Crore is dashed away now.

With Episode 8 it will be really interesting to see how the family will deal with this situation. But most importantly what Titu Mama will do now since he has promised to pay Ma ki Chu the money with complete interest without that lottery to help in that endeavor. If you want to know, do not miss the season finale of this awesome series!
