Mr. India 2: "It wasn't your idea. It wasn't your dream," says Javed Akhtar responding to Shekhar Kapur

Posted by on PP in

Ever since filmmaker Ali Abbas Zafar announced the sequel to the iconic film Mr. India, director of the classic Shekhar Kapur has constantly expressed his dissent. The filmmaker who made the 1987 classic with Anil Kapoor and Sridevi in the lead said that he was not informed or consulted before going ahead with the sequel.

Mr India 2: "It wasn't your ides. It wasn't your dream," says Javed Akhtar responding to Shekhar Kapur

Meanwhile, Javed Akhtar who along with Salim Khan wrote Mr. Indian is not impressed by director Shekhar Kapur's condemnation of Mr. India 2.

Recently Shekhar Kapur tweeted that the argument is not whether anyone took permission from him, but it is about creative rights. “The argument on a remake of #MrIndia is not that no one took permission from me or even bothered to tell me. The question is. If  you are remaking a feature film, based on a director’s very successful work, does the Director have no creative rights over what he/she created?” he tweeted.


Responding to Shekhar, Javed Akhtar wrote, "Shekhar saheb the story the situations the scenes the characters the dialogue the lyrics even the title none of these were yours. I gave it all to you. Yes you execute it very well but how can your claim on the film be more than mine. It wasn’t you idea. It wasn’t your dream."


Earlier, Javed Akhtar had said that the makers may be morally bound to inform the people involved in the original, but they are not legally bound.

Meanwhile, actress Sonam Kapoor too had expressed her disappointment on the making of the sequel as she claimed her father Anil Kapoor was not informed of the same.

It is another pop anthem in which she explores the feeling of meeting someone new after being heartbroken.

She further says, "I don't need a reason (Oh) / Not sorry, I want your stupid love.' And in another verse, she says, "Now, it's time to free me from the chain / I gotta find that peace, is it too late or / Could this love protect me from the pain? / I would battle for you (Even if I break in two)."

BTS drops cinematic masterpiece with official 'ON' music video from Map Of The Soul: 7

Posted by on PP in

A week after the release of their highly anticipated album 'Map Of The Soul: 7', worldwide superstars BTS has dropped the official music video of their title track 'ON'. The album dives into the seven years of the seven members, from being aspiring musicians to an intriguing rookie group from a small label to becoming worldwide sensations.

BTS drops cinematic masterpiece with official 'ON' music video from Map Of The Soul 7-01

The South Korean septet - RM, Jin, Suga, J-Hope, Jimin, V and Jungkook - has dropped the official video and let's just say it - it's mesmerizing. After watching the powerful Kinetic Manifesto video that showcased the skills of the seven members, this video takes it to the next level.

Let's just say it - nobody does a music video like BTS. This cinematic moment is a historic. The ON music truly is a reflection of their 2013 hip hop track N.O. The music video takes you through a journey of major emotions. In 2013, the seven members were trying to fight the system.

Cut to 2020, this music has multiple references like Noah's Ark, Maze Runner, Omelas and Bird Box. Beyond that, the music video symbolises that the members, when united, are stronger than ever. They have been through immense hardships but when it comes to their battles, together, they are trying to break free inorder to create a new paradise and dream big. The video ends with 'No More Dream' which ends with 'Dream'.

One of powerful verse says, "Look at my feet, look down / The shadow resembles me / Is it the shadow that's shaking / Or is it my feet that are trembling / Of course I‘m not unafraid / Of course it's not all okay / But I know / Awkwardly I flow / I fly together with that black wind."

Another verse goes, "Where my pain lies / Let me take a breath / My everythin' / My blood and tears / Got no fears / I'm singin' ohhhhh / Oh I'm takin' over / You should know yeah / Can't hold me down 'cuz you know I'm a fighter / Choosing to descend into the dark abyss / Find me and I'm gonna bleed with ya."

'ON' is a reflection of their 2013 track 'N.O' which was a hip hop track that showcased the intense pressure young people go through.

Cut to 2020, and seven years into their careers, the group is thriving and excelling but they are going with the flow and take things as they come without adding too much pressure on themselves. Instead of ignoring and running away from their shadows, they've embraced their everything and moving forward with a positive approach.

'Map Of The Soul: 7' unveiled on February 21, 2020.

AR Rahman opens up on debuting as a producer with 99 Songs

Posted by on PP in

With 99 Songs, music maestro AR Rahman will be seen turning producer and writer for the first time. The trailer which was recently launched has created tremendous curiosity among fans and cine-goers about the upcoming musical drama. At the recently held event of the movie, when quizzed about the same, a delighted Rahman said, “I feel like I have been reborn since the time I have decided to turn producer. It’s an entirely new feeling”.

AR Rahman opens up on debuting as a producer with 99 Songs

Speaking further on the challenges of making a film he says, “It's like being born again as a new man. When I started as a film music composer, I already had ten years of experience. But as a producer, it felt so new and seemed like I was starting all over again and I wanted to leave no stone unturned in giving it my best. Also, since I was working with other debutants – the director and the actor - I was reminded that I have a completely new team and we had a modest budget. I didn’t want to spare any effort in presenting it well and try to make our own epic ”.

When asked if he was a regular on sets during the shoot, he said, “I knew that if some important scenes needed to be expanded, I ensured I would be present on set. Our executive producer would tell me that we have time constraints and will have to wrap the scene in a day while I was keen on four because those are the scenes that need love and complete justice. It's an art to balance between creative and commercial. However, if you get too creative then you may have to sell your property”, he laughingly added.

It is a first attempt and I hope we have done our best. My wife and daughters have been a great support”, he signed off.

SCOOP: Harshad Chopda talks about the possibility of a reunion with team Bepannaah and his future projects!

Posted by on PP in

Harshad Chopda has passed off as one of the most versatile actors in the Indian television industry. Be it the role of a romantic hero like Prem or the role of hot-blooded Sahir Azeem Chaudhry, he has always raised the bar high when it comes to portraying emotions perfectly on screen. While his roles have left us drooling, he leaves no stone unturned to look as hot as he does. A foodie at heart, Harshad Chopda clearly believes in eating as much as you like and then work it out in the gym. Making jaws drop with his chiseled body, Harshad says that he cannot spend a single day without going to the gym and working on himself.

SCOOP Harshad Chopda talks about the possibility of a reunion with team Bepannaah and his future projects!

In an exclusive conversation with Bollywood Hungama, Harshad spoke extensively about his future plans and the possibility of a reunion with the cast of Bepannaah as the show is about to complete 2 years in March. Bepannaah will always be a special show for multiple reasons and one of the major reasons being the high-on-emotions chemistry between his character Aditya Hooda and Jennifer Winget's character, Zoya Hooda. While the fans can’t wait to see him back on screen, they would love to see him work again with Jennifer because of their organic chemistry. Apart from that, the show also had an unconventional plot and storyline which seemed to have made its place in people’s hearts since the fans are still not over it.

When asked about the possibility of a reunion, Harshad said, “I have no idea. I spoke to Aniruddha sir after receiving the award and he was also saying that it’s high time we threw a party. But then everyone is busy. I mean, the show has ended and I don’t know what to say. As an actor, it feels great that people have loved a character so much but it’s also scary because, for my future projects, you have to fight an elephant that you have made! So, it has to be better, there’s no point in doing anything less than what I have done. I have tried my best to be better than my previous work.”

Speaking further about his work, he said, “I am proud of the kind of work that I have done and I am happy with the choices that I have made.” We asked him about his future projects, obviously, to which he said, “We can’t have a preconceived mindset, then we can’t judge what is offered to us properly. Whatever comes my way, I try and give my 100% attention to it and find reasons to do it. Sometimes I try to look through the things that don’t seem right and let them go. But I’m am in talks, and till the time things are not exciting it is difficult to answer this because I am currently not working. Be it by choice or no, the fact is that I’m not doing anything. Before Bepannaah also, I wasn’t doing anything for like three and a half hours but it was justified with it because the decision was right and I got time to prepare for it. So the more I wait, the better I become with my work.”

We also asked him about his absence on social media and he said, “I try my best to be active and I know that I have to post. There are times when I panic that it’s been so long since I last posted and it’s not like I don’t have pictures. I literally spent the extra four days in London clicking pictures! So I posted a few pictures with my long hair and I wanted to post a few with my short hair but I didn’t get a haircut. So now that it has happened, I want to post something with the trophy but let’s see when that happens. Actually, I don’t like to click myself, it’s a very weird thing that I prefer if someone clicks a picture of me!”

When asked about his fans, he said, “The way they admire, acknowledge and respect what I do, I hope and wish that in terms of work, I can repay all this. I feel really lucky because I always wanted to be surrounded by fans when I walk down the streets. But, it is really weird to admit that it actually happens to you. So, it’s a miracle that this is happening and I have nothing to give them in return. Even with my roles, I have to make sure to carry it forward and it has to be better!”

As we concluded the conversation, he mentioned how much of a workaholic he is and how he does not sit idle even on his day offs! Favourite for multiple reasons, Harshad Chopda surely knows how to make the most of the roles that are given to him and we’re so glad to see him in a different avatar every single time.

Bigg Boss 13 contestant Rashami Desai says she joined the show to create opportunity for Arhaan Khan

Posted by on PP in

TV actor Rashami Desai, who was one of the most popular contestants of Bigg Boss 13, went through a rather eventful journey inside the house, and all of it wasn't as pleasant as she would have liked it to be. It was during the show that she learned about boyfriend Arhaan Khan's marriage and that he had children also. However, in numerous instances, we saw Rashami standing by Arhaan, and initially, she refused to believe that Arhaan wasn't being truthful to her.

Bigg Boss 13 contestant Rashami Desai says she joined the show to create opportunity for Arhaan Khan

However, looks like things have changed. Speaking to a leading daily, Rashami said she had left that chapter behind and will refrain from making ill comments about him. Albeit, she added that she was shocked that Arhaan hid such an important aspect of his life from her, and that she hadn't met any of his family members. Rashami says she also needs some answers and will meet Arhaan for the same.

Opening up on how she even considered leaving the Bigg Boss 13 house after learning about Arhaan's truth, Rashami said she joined the show so that Arhaan could also get an opportunity.

Before the show went on air, there were rumours that Rashami and Arhaan would be tying the knot on the show itself. While nothing like that happened and Arhaan stayed in the game only for a brief period, Rashami later alleged that he had secretly committed to the makers of the show that he'd marry Rashami on the show.

Posted by on PP in

16 years is a long time, right? That's exactly how old Karan Johar's Koffee With Karan is! Although we've had only six seasons so far, the show started out in 2004. Most of us didn't know that Union Minister and Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi fame actor Smriti Irani had graced the couch as a guest! She was accompanied by Sakshi Tanwar, who rose to fame with Ekta Kapoor's Kahaani Ghar Ghar Ki.

Irani has now taken to Instagram to share a priceless throwback photo where Karan poses with his two guests. Back then, Karan preferred grinning ear to ear than pouting! Also, all of them were so much thinner, and Smriti blamed the Koffee With Karan hampers for all the fat! "POUT MIA alert..Throwback to a time @karanjohar smiled in photos taken ... P.S—- notice how slim yours truly was. totally blame the damn hampers for the weight gain," she wrote.
Just in case you are amused to look at Karan in the photo, he himself is no less amused. 'Oh god!!!! That may have been the last time I smiled in a photograph!! and what was I wearing?????," he wrote, in the comments section.

Well, it does take time to transform yourself into a fashionista!

Shilpa Shirodkar is back on screen with Guns of Banaras

Posted by on PP in

You know what they say… Once an actor, always an actor. Shilpa Shirodkar, who was a prominent actress all through the 1990s with hits like Kishen Kanhaiya, Hum, Aankhen, Khuda Gawah and Gopi Kishen to her credit, is now back in front of the camera.

Shilpa plays a significant role in this week’s actioner Guns Of Banaras. Speaking from her home in Dubai about her decision to make a comeback Shilpa says, “After I got married in 2000 my husband and I had a long-distance marriage for five years. I finally moved to Dubai and was happy to be a wife and then a mother to our only daughter. But then I started missing work…not acting per se. But just being at work. I did a couple of television serials.”

Then this feature film came her way from Rakesh (Rikku) Nath whose son Karan Nath was being re-launched. Star-secretary Rakesh Nath was instrumental in shaping Shilpa’s career. “I got in touch with Rikkuji and told him it was only fair that I should be a part of this film as his son was starring in it. Yeh toh ghar ki baat hui. He told me about the role that I could do. I liked it. And immediately said yes. Shooting with the film’s director Shekhar Suri and the rest of the team was like a picnic,” exults Shilpa.

She is now open to other acting offers. “There’s so much happening in our cinema now. And things have changed so much since I worked there. Everybody is more professional now. In the 1990 I’d be doing two shifts and running from one studio to another. Everything was haphazard. Now everyone knows his or her job. It’s a pleasure to be part of the industry again. For an actor my age there’re so many kind of roles on offer. And I’m not looking at playing the conventional romantic lead at this stage of my career.”

Shilpa’s ten-year career as a leading lady has left her feeling grateful for the experience. “I think I’m the only actress of my generation who got to work with Dev Anand Saab in Return Of Jewel Thief and Dilip Kumar Saab in Kalinga. Kalinga never released, but I did get to work with the greatest actor of our cinema. As for the third in the great trio of super-actors Raj Kapoor…I went to meet Raj Saab with my mother at his farm for a possible lead in Henna. He looked at me and said, ‘I wish I had met you when I was casting for Bobby.’ I didn’t work with Raj saab. But what he said has remained with me.”

So does Shilpa’s daughter show any inclination to be an actor? “At the moment she has other interests. But you never know. Acting is in her genes,” says Shilpa whose older sister Namrata Shirodkar was an actress, and so was their mother Gangu Bai and their grandmother Meenakshi Shirodkar.

Incidentally it is widely believed that Shilpa is older than Namrata when in fact it’s the opposite. “That’s because I did everything before Namrata. I joined films before her. I married before and became a mother first,” says Shilpa.

The two sisters remain very close. “We became even closer after we lost our parents. I make it a point to be in India for every release of my brother-in-law Mahesh Babu,” says Shilpa proudly.

"Ten or even five years ago, Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan would not have been possible", says Ayushmann Khurrana on the success of Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan

Posted by on PP in

The happiest star-actor in Asia right now is Ayushmann Khurrana. His latest and riskiest release in a career relying dangerously on risks, has got a heartwarming response. Ayushmann and I spoke as he headed from Lucknow to the airport back home to Mumbai.

"Ten or even five years ago, Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan would not have been possible", says Ayushmann Khurrana on the success of Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan

Exhausted but happy he said, “We didn’t want Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan to be seen as just a gay love story. Of course, it is about two men in love. But it is more about the family and how they react to their son’s same-sex relationship. We didn’t want a heavy handed grim treatment. We wanted it to be a popcorn entertainer for the whole family, a family film. We didn’t want anyone to squirm while watching. I think we have achieved that.”

Ayushmann says he always wants his film to be different, bold game-changers but nonetheless palatable to the entire family. “I think I’d be a little worried if one of my films was given an ‘A’ certificate without warning. I thought my Article 15 was dark. But again it ended on a hopeful note. With Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan, we knew we were making a happy film. That was the mood.”

The actor who has had a string of unbroken hits for the past three years feels the winds of change blowing across Indian cinema. “Ten or even five years ago, Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan would not have been possible. The fact that we now have audiences watching this film favourably is reassuring.”

Even more gratifying is the fact that the censor board allowed the kiss between Ayushmann and his co-star Jitendra Kumar to remain. “They realized it was an important part of the film. It is the only intimate moment between the couple. Kuch toh intimacy dikhani tthi (we had to show some intimacy somewhere).

How did Ayushmann’s wife Tahira react to the kiss? “She was very relaxed about it. She saw it for what it was: an organic part of the story and not a gimmick. I think we’ve all come a long way.”

Posted by on PP in

Ahead of August 2020, when the Indian Film Festival of Melbourne will walk into its eleventh year with a grand opening, the team organized a prelude event in Mumbai before their main event in Melbourne. The multi-award-winning, much-loved film festival, considered amongst the largest Indian film festivals in the world has year on year attracted the presence of Bollywood’s creme de le crème, including Shah Rukh Khan as the chief guest last year.

Shah Rukh Khan awards scholarship to a young female researcher from Kerala

While it’s been 10 wonderful years, festival director Mitu Bhowmik Lange is gearing up to make the 2020 celebrations just as grand. Their ten-year celebrations included names like Karan Johar, Zoya Akhtar, Rima Das, Arjun Kapoor, Malaika Arora, Tabu and filmmaker Sriram Raghavan, Super Deluxe star Vijay Sethupathi and director Thiagarajan Kumararaja amongst others. Taking forward her relentless focus on inclusivity and diversity, she continues her passion to promote content and content creators who have pushed the envelope.

Last year, the festival screened over 60 films from all over India and the subcontinent in nearly 22 languages. Amongst the other highlights was the 20-year celebration of Kuch Kuch Hota Hai hosted by filmmaker Karan Johar, who was in discussion with cinephiles and fans, a discussion with filmmakers Zoya Akhtar and Rima Das - two firebrand directors who are changing the narrative, Andhadhun sweeping major awards at the awards night with the luminous Tabu and Sriram Raghavan whisking away top gongs. Multiple regional films, especially Super Deluxe emerged as a big winner with Vjay earning praises from King Khan, who called him the most wonderful actor he has ever seen.

Shah Rukh Khan awards scholarship to a young female researcher from Kerala

The festival’s association with La Trobe University culminated with the launch of the Shah Rukh Khan La Trobe University PhD Scholarship, announced at the 2019 festival. It has been dedicated to a female researcher - Gopika Kottantharayil Bhasi from Thrissur (Kerala), working on farming practices through animal science, ecology and molecular studies. She was chosen from over 800 Indian women for the honour. She was awarded the four-year scholarship at a ceremony in Mumbai on February 26.

In a statement, Mitu says, “It has been an overwhelming journey that has gathered strength from all quarters in the past 10 years. The content landscape has changed and it’s heartening to see lines between commercial and independent cinema blurring. It’s the celebration of great stories now. IFFM continues its dedicated work towards supporting diverse voices and cinema. I am ecstatic about the initiatives we have taken, especially our association with La Trobe University, which takes us beyond what is covered under the purview of a standard film festival. We are looking at the growth of a community and taking the spirit of cinema to the masses. Having Mr Khan support a young researcher’s dream is a step towards us collectively furthering our social responsibilities. I and all of us at IFFM wish Gopika the very best. We hope to continue our work towards cinema and society unequivocally. We are also really excited to launch our Inclusive Film making workshops that further advocates true inclusive film making both behind and in front of camera."

Khan, in a statement, said, “I would like personally thank Mitu. I take myself as the first-hand ambassador of Melbourne and I attended the Indian film festival of Melbourne last year and it was such a warm and hospitable experience. I’m a staunch believer in education and I would like to congratulate Gopika. The way forward for everyone is to gain education and there’s never an end to learning. The key to empower women world over is only by providing them with education. I think education in India or anywhere else in the world is a step forward. Gopika is fortunate that she’s soon going to be studying at La Trobe which is a fantastic university and I’m glad she’s getting this opportunity to do a Ph.D. on her research. I admire Gopika’s dedication and determination. This scholarship will enable her to travel to La Trobe in Melbourne, Australia where she will pursue her dreams of helping to improve India’s agriculture sector. I wish her well."

Meanwhile, on the work front, Shah Rukh Khan is yet to announce his next project after his last release Zero in 2018.

EXCLUSIVE: "I did realise that both my cameos in Bhoot and Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan had a scene where I was eloping" - Bhumi Pednekar

Posted by on PP in

There have been cases when an actor has had two releases, both of which released on the same day. But what happened last week is the mother of all co-incidences and nothing short of history. The two films that released on February 21 – the scarefest BHOOT: Part One – The Haunted Ship and the gay comedy Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan – each had a cameo by talented actress Bhumi Pednekar. Interestingly, in her entry scene in both these films, she was seen at the balcony, about to elope and get married! That’s not all. In both the films, it was the lead hero, Vicky Kaushal and Ayushmann Khurrana, who had come to help her run away!

EXCLUSIVE: "I did realise that both my cameos in in Bhoot and Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan had a scene where I was eloping" - Bhumi Pednekar

As expected, this was noticed by few viewers who ventured out to see both BHOOT: Part One – The Haunted Ship and Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan, and couldn’t believe that something like this actually happened. We asked Bhumi Pednekar exclusively to react on this never-before-seen phenomenon. She says, “I did realise that both my cameos had a scene where I was eloping, one was with the man I was going to get married to, one was with the man who I could have been married to if his sexual preference allowed. But I didn’t ever think that both these films would be out on the same day. Both these films were helmed by my friends and I did them out of love for the people attached to the films and of course the scripts. It was actually nice to see people send love to my cameos. It was great fun doing them!”

Besides BHOOT: Part One – The Haunted Ship and Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan, Bhumi Pednekar will be seen in 2 more films this year, both featuring her in prominent roles and not special appearances. The first will probably be Dolly Kitty Aur Woh Chamakte Sitare, directed by Alankrita Shrivastava of Lipstick Under My Burkha fame. This will be followed by Durgavati, which she’s currently shooting in Madhya Pradesh. It is a remake of the 2018 successful Tamil horror film Bhaagamathie and is co-produced by Akshay Kumar. She’ll open her account in 2021 on the first day of the year itself with the release of Mr Lele. Directed by Shashank Khaitan, it stars Varun Dhawan and Janhvi Kapoor.

Speaking about his connection with Shehnaaz, Sidharth said during a media interaction after winning the trophy, "I don't know if it will sound right, but I am great with kids and Shehnaaz is like a kid, she is very kid-like. The kind of moods that you all have seen me in, my best few moments in the house have been thanks to Shehnaaz. The ups and downs with Shehnaaz have eased me out. A lot of conversations that happen inside the house are somethings that I am not very used to or I usually like to be a part of. Staying with her (Shehnaaz) just eased me out because I have somebody to speak to and I could speak just about anything and nothing. So that was fun. My journey the way it has gone, I have been able to be in it, it had a lot to do because of my friendship with Shehnaaz."

EXCLUSIVE: Harshad Chopda talks in detail about receiving the Dadasaheb Phalke Award, says his father was more excited!

Posted by on PP in

Harshad Chopda is the ultimate heartthrob of Indian television and has been making us fall in love with him every time he does a new role. From being Ali Baig on Left Right Left to his last stint as Aditya Hooda in Bepannaah, he has redefined versatility and has expressed various emotions with extreme ease. He surely knows how to win hearts every single time he steps out and after being MIA on social media for close to two months, he posted a picture in an ethnic avatar as he headed for the Dadasaheb Phalke International Film Festival Awards 2020, making our jaws drop down to the ground. He was awarded as the Most Favourite Television Actor of the year and his fans went crazy for all the right reasons!

EXCLUSIVE: Harshad Chopda talks in detail about receiving the Dadasaheb Phalke Award!

Bollywood Hungama got in an exclusive chat with the handsome hunk and he spoke in detail about his recent win and his future projects. Speaking about his win he says, “I got the call two days before the event and I was panicking because I had no idea what to wear and I needed a haircut! Then they asked me if I wanted to bring anyone along with me, so I crosschecked if I could get my family and then I asked them. After I asked my dad and then the excitement started! He was more excited about this than me. I was kind of thinking of wearing another suit but then he stopped me and told me to wear something better than the suit. So, my father, sister, and I went shopping for the outfit and it was his choice!”

He further elaborated at how this was the first time that he had attended an awards show event with his family. He said, “This was the first time that we had gone out to an awards function, I mean we do go out but they’ve never come to see me shoot. Whatever my father has seen, he does it on his phone or television or newspaper. He has never seen me perform on the stage or interact with people. He was more excited than I was; I generally send a message whenever there’s a chance that I’d get an award. Usually, he will read it and let it go, but this time he replied saying ‘Proud father’. I think he understands the depth of this more than I do.”

“I felt really happy because it’s been a while since I did something so I cannot go to an award show expecting that I’m going to win something. I don’t have a show on-air right now and when I win an award I’m actually quite surprised because it’s been 15 months since my show (Bepannaah) ended. And the only thing I could think of was that we all try and we’re all here to do something, but sometimes we just don’t get that platform. Anybody who gets the kind of work that motivates and brings out the best in them, then all of us are going to do an amazing job. This award was for every actor because we’re all working really hard.”

We can’t say anything other than the fact that he truly deserved this award!

Harvey Weinstein guilty of rape, Bollywood reacts

Posted by on PP in

Taapsee Pannu: Finally! Better late than never. I hope it’s a beginning of many others who are held accountable. As for the #MeToo offenders in Bollywood, I am the wrong person to answer that. Only the ones in authority can. But I can only hope and wish it happens asap.”

Harvey Weinstein guilty of rape, Bollywood reacts

Swara Bhasker: “I’d say it’s a victory for the victims and kudos to the judicial system that did a thorough investigation and brought Weinstein to justice. The stories of so many victims who are often questioned and shamed stand vindicated. Also kudos to the journalists who meticulously verified the accounts and built a strong verified story before publishing it.”

Tanushree Dutta: “Great move on part of the United States judiciary to bring a notorious perpetrator to justice in a landmark verdict. Just proves that when it comes to law and order and safety of women India needs to catch up with the US on speedy justice. While Nirbhaya case of 2012 still awaits justice from her grave, Harvey Weinstein has got his comeuppance in the most powerful way. I applaud the US department of justice for this victory against sexual misconduct. A new era is dawning where karma will come and bite you sooner than expected. Heaven and hell are right here on earth!! Choose your actions wisely, folks.”

Celina Jaitley: “Chalo at least one devil got his due, in India #MeToo seems to have been long forgotten.”

Taapsee Pannu and Anubhav Sinha react to the CBFC clearing Thappad with no cuts

Posted by on PP in

The Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) is in an exceptionally liberal mood. They have cleared Anubhav Sinha’s stark and real film on domestic violence Thappad with a ‘U’ certificate. This is even more liberal than what the CBFC did to Anubhav Sinha’s previous film Article 15 which was given a ‘UA’ certificate.

Taapsee Pannu and Anubhav Sinha react to the CBFC clearing Thappad with no cuts

Taapsee Pannu is on top of the world. “I’m happy the censor board, Anubhav Sir and I are on the same page as to what the young girls and boys need to watch. Because the shaping up of an individual’s personality and mind-set begins very early in life.”

Says Anubhav, “I’ve never had any problem with the censor board. After Mulk was passed with only a few minor cuts I sent a thankyou message to all the members of the censor board. I don’t think too many filmmakers do that. I went to the censor board thinking there would be trouble, considering the theme.”

Before submitting his hard hitting political dramas to the CBFC Anubhav thought of consulting his censor-plagued peer. “I even thought of consulting z who has faced censor troubles repeatedly. Finally, though I had no trouble with the censor board at all. I want to thank them for getting the point. For Article 15 the CBFC asked for just five very basic negligible cuts, to which we agreed in less than a minute. The cuts were for foul words and they asked for a voiceover with disclaimer, very reasonable requests that I was happy to comply with. This time for Thappad there was not a single cut that they wanted. I can’t say I have any quibbles with the CBFC.”

About children watching a film on domestic violence Anubhav Sinha says, “It is important for young minds to understand that mutual respect in any relationship is imperative. And to inculcate that respect you have to first show the disrespect. Also, don’t forget it’s just one slap in Thappad.”

Jin, the eternal source of cracking jokes, said that he couldn't understand James' punchline but went ahead to laugh. Calling him as the 'Joke Guy', the conversations between them were hilarious. The highlight of the episode has to be when James addressed Jimin as 'mochi', the nickname given to him as both of them called each other Papa Mochi and Baby Mochi.

That's not it! This Carpool Karaoke was a little different. The septet headed to the dance studio where James Corden is a regular member. As they learned new moves, Jimin went ahead to teach the class 'ON' choreography. What phenomenal dancers!
