Thane court rejects Mamta Kulkarni's plea to defreeze her possessions in connection to 2,000-crore drugs case

Posted by on PP in

Former Bollywood actress Mamta Kulkarni's plea to de-freeze her bank accounts, FDs, and Mumbai flats have been rejected by Thane special court, due to her involvement in a massive 2,000-crore drugs case. Last week she received the order from a Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances Act (NDPS) court judge. Mamta's lawyers claimed that she has been trapped in the case and is the only earning member of her family. The actress also revealed that her sister is going through a mental disorder and has been seeking help from a hospital.

Thane court rejects Mamta Kulkarni's plea to defreeze her possessions in connection to 2,000-crore drugs case

Mamta said that as her FDs are frozen she is not able to pay the bills of her sister and requested the court to de-freeze her FDs and Mumbai flat so that she can aid her sister in getting cured in a nice environment. The public prosecutor however had something else to say and revealed that she has been absconding since she was charged with a drugs case. Moreover, she was also a regular member of the association. As she never showed up in court, section 82 of the Code of Criminal Procedure was slapped on her and all her possessions were sealed. The judge rejected her plea citing that no such reason can be seen to de-freeze the bank accounts and flats.

The Thane police had caught 20 tonnes of ephedrine and 2.5 tonnes of acetic anhydride drugs from Avon Life Sciences in Solapur which led to prime suspects Kenya's drug tycoon Vicky Goswami and actress Mamta Kulkarni in the drug racket.

"I didn't want to ever become a part of this rat race, I just wanted to act," says actor Vishwa Gulati

Posted by on PP in

The industry is known for its glamour factor which attracts a number of aspiring actors to be a part of it. With cutthroat competition, keeping up with the number game, clubbed with the constant hunt for the right project after completing shooting for one, can get stressful. But amidst all the chaos in the bustling glamour world, a very few people like actor Vishwa Gulati believe in not 'losing onto the sanity' even while being amidst the frenetic business; the devoted actor believes in keeping the art above each and everything.

"I didn't want to ever become a part of this rat race, I just wanted to act", says actor Vishwa Gulati

Shedding more light on his opinion, the actor said, "The numbers have unfortunately become very important for an artist these days, your selection to your market value depends on it now. Despite being an experienced and trained actor, I did lose out on a few OTT projects because I didn't have a certain number of followers on my social media. I didn’t want to ever become a part of this rat race, I just wanted to act and be appreciated for the same".

Furthermore, he adds, "I always thought that being persistent and true to my craft will get all these numbers up eventually, it's only a matter of bagging that one good role and the rest will follow. I was clear in my head to not pay so much attention to social media number games and rather do what I need to do as an actor and that is to act and simply forever work towards evolving and polishing my skills, and it all worked out for me".

On the professional front, the actor is currently garnering love for his portrayal of Kunal Chauhan in Imlie which is currently one of the most successful television shows in India.

Ballika Vadhu season 2 to start from August 9 on Colors; meet the new cast

Posted by on PP in

A powerful story that marked the dawn of a new age on television, a grave issue that left a long-lasting impact on the minds of the viewers, endearing characters that touched million hearts and are still revered iconic. 13 years ago, COLORS brought a new revolution on Indian Television with its path-breaking show, Balika Vadhu, that addressed the subject of child marriage in the simplest yet powerful manner. A topic that was still labelled as taboo in our country was brought to life through Anandi’s story that took the nation by storm. While the show successfully changed many lives and mindsets, the evil custom of ‘Baal Vivaah’ is still prevalent and thriving in some parts of our country. With an aim to bring about a change and reignite conversations to eradicate child marriage custom from society, the channel is set to launch Balika Vadhu Season 2. The show will capture the journey of a ‘nayi Anandi’ (played by Shreya Patel) as she takes definitive steps to fight and undo the injustice done to her. Produced by Sphere Origins, Balika Vadhu Season 2 will premiere on 9th August and will air Monday to Friday at 8:00 pm only on COLORS.

Speaking about the show, Nina Elavia Jaipuria, Head, Hindi Mass Entertainment and Kids TV Network, Viacom18, said, “In the past few months, we have introduced some of our biggest properties to provide wholesome variety entertainment to our viewers. From launching a brand-new season of Khatron Ke Khiladi set in Cape Town to announcing a visual-based quiz show, The Big Picture with Ranveer Singh as the host. Keeping the momentum high, we are excited to launch the second season of Balika Vadhu, a revolutionary show that is synonymous with the ethos of the channel. Armed with a brand-new story and characters, we will showcase one of the most loved shows with a social message that still holds a strong relevance.”

Set in the rustic locales of the town of Devgarh, Gujarat, Balika Vadhu season 2 traces the story of two friends, Premji (played by Sunny Pancholi) and Khimji (played by Anshul Trivedi). They share a bond so thick that they always wished to extend their friendship and become one family. As fate would have it, Khimji’s wife gives birth to a girl, Anandi, while a little boy Jigar (Played by Vansh Sayani) is born to Premji. The very day, Premji and Khimji promise each other to get Anandi and Jigar married and soon there comes a day when they are wedded to each other in a ‘Baal Vivah’. How will the journey unfold for Anandi and Jigar?  How will Anandi fight the injustice done to her?

Talking about the concept of the show, Manisha Sharma, Chief Content Officer, Hindi Mass Entertainment, Viacom18 said, “Balika Vadhu is more than just a show, it is an emotion. There has been a generation of viewers who have grown up loving and watching the show and still do. Keeping in mind the changing and evolving times, we are launching the new season of Balika Vadhu that addresses the custom of child marriage albeit from a whole new perspective. It will introduce the audience to a new Anandi and the challenges that she faces as a child bride. Nayi Anandi will fight for her rights and surely turn out to be an inspiration to many girls suffering a similar fate and will touch the hearts and minds of our viewers.”

Producers, Sphere Origins, Sunjoy Wadhwa, said, “We have always believed in the power of stories and the change that they can bring. The entire nation is a witness to how Balika Vadhu changed the perception of millions across the country and the face of Indian television. We still believe in the power of its concept as a section of our society affirms the custom of child marriage even today.”Adding to this, Comall Wadhwa, said, “This time through Balika Vadhu, we will take viewers to the nooks and corners of Gujarat to tell the story of Nayi Anandi. A lot of girls are still fighting this battle of being in a child marriage every day and our story and characters will be an inspiration to them. We are delighted to join hands with COLORS yet again and look forward to creating the magic.”

Talking about playing Anandi, Shreya Patel said, “My family always told me about the special place the character of Anandi holds in the hearts of many Indians. I am extremely excited as well as a little nervous to play a character that left such an impact on everyone. My character of Anandi in many ways is like who I am, she is brave, happy and loves doing garba. I eagerly look forward to the new journey.”

The show will also feature talented artists including Anshul Trivedi, Riddhi Shukla, Sunny Pancholi, Shiju Kataria and Seema Mishra in prominent roles.

To promote one of its most popular shows, Colors has designed a robust marketing plan across print, television, and digital platforms. On television, a 10-day campaign highlighting the nostalgia aspect of the show will be deployed. The show’s music track which induces a lot of emotion has been recreated and interwoven with each creative to build recall and drive viewership. The channel will also be targeting print publications across key markets on the launch day showcasing the innocence and feistiness of the nayi Anandi. A digital event (Colors Golden Petal Club)  for the viewers featuring Avika Gor, Anandi from Season 1 is also planned for the viewers and promises to take them on a trip down memory lane. On the digital front, vignettes will be created featuring the former cast of the show- Avika Gor and Avinash Mukherjee as they talk about their memories of season one. This will also be backed by a strong influencer outreach to create conversations around the show along with some hard-hitting videos which will highlight the life of the children who have lived through this social evil.

Sourabh Raaj Jain evicted from Khatron Ke Khiladi 11; says 'Some things are not in your control'

Posted by on PP in

Fans were astonished by Sourabh Raaj Jain's expulsion from Khatron Ke Khiladi 11. Despite achieving to the best of his skills in all activities and the fact that he wasn't even intended to be in the elimination task, the actor was eliminated. Given that Arjun Bijlani had won the ‘K Medal' the week before, he was given the option of saving himself and sending another contender to complete the final challenge. He chose Sourabh because he believed he could perform well, but as luck would have it, the actor took longer than Anushka Sen and Maheck Chahal and had to leave the performance.

Sourabh Raaj Jain evicted from Khatron Ke Khiladi 11; says 'Some things are not in your control'

Sourabh had said, while he doesn't have much experience with reality shows, he understands that there are things that are out of your control. He thinks it’s the equivalent of sitting in a car and letting someone else drive. Also, he said there isn't much you can do because things aren't always based on talent, but rather on circumstances. The actor stated that it would be a delight for his fans because he never had a fear panda or aborted an assignment during his brief travels. Even though he has a fear of creepy crawlies, he was able to do his tasks

He also stated after all these years; he has learnt never to say never.

While Sourabh Raaj Jain seems to have accepted his fate, fans were clearly unhappy with his exit

Posted by on PP in

Janhvi Kapoor shared that her relationship with her half-siblings Arjun Kapoor and Anshula Kapoor changed and grew closer after she began spending more time with them.

The half-sibling’s relationship is now more organic and they get together frequently for dinners, not out of obligation, but out of a want to be a family.

Janhvi Kapoor revealed her relationship with her stepbrother Arjun Kapoor: 'That's what family is'

In an interview with Harper’s Bazaar India, Janhvi has spoken out about their current relationship. She said, “I believe that there is not much you can count on in life…however, family is the one thing you can rely on. For me, that’s what family is. Security and consistency; it’s home.” Arjun and Anshula, are kids from Boney Kapoor's first marriage to Mona Shourie, while his second marriage to Sridevi, he has Janhvi and Khushi Kapoor. Barriers were swept aside after Sridevi's passing in 2018, and Arjun and Anshula stood by Janhvi and Khushi's side during the difficult period.

Janhvi Kapoor also discussed her feelings of safety with Arjun and Anshula. She said, “It’s not like we go to each other’s homes every day, or know every detail about each other’s lives. But I felt an instant security with Arjun bhaiya and Anshula didi, a feeling of comfort”.

They worked hard to strengthen their newly formed affectionate relationship, which did not happen overnight. “We started off by making plans over the first couple of months, but now we meet for family dinners every two or three weeks. It doesn’t feel like, ‘Oh, we must make an effort or we must meet’, there is a willingness to meet as a family. It feels much more organic now and I don’t know whether we are similar in terms of our personalities [even Khushi and I are very different from each other], but a lot of the baggage that we once carried was addressed once we spent time with each other.” added Janhvi.

Arjun, who was also a part of the same interview, said, “Family is comfort, you should be comfortable enough to just be with and around them. There should be comfort even in the fights or the anger, there shouldn’t be any fear. You should be able to be your true, naked self with family. That is why your friends are also your family because you can be yourself with them. It is a true bond, which matters a lot to me.”

The film is about a group of good-for-nothing guys who decide to stand up for their country after their friend Flt Lt Ajay Rathod (R Madhavan) dies in an air crash. Today, it’s difficult to imagine anyone else in the said role. However, Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra in his autobiography ‘The Stranger In The Mirror’, co-authored by Reeta Ramamurthy Gupta, revealed that R Madhavan was not the first choice. Shah Rukh Khan was offered the role when he was shooting for Swades (2004). But since he didn’t have dates, he declined.

R Madhavan speaks about the kissing scene with Soha Ali Khan in Rang De Basanti; reveals that he could only think of Saif Ali Khan ‘socking his face

Rakeysh's autobiography also has the first-person account of R Madhavan. The actor writes that he was blown away by Rang De Basanti's script, especially because it was very detailed. Interestingly, R Madhavan was also offered the role of Karan Singhania, which was ultimately played by Siddharth. R Madhavan then was shooting for Thambi (2006) then and had shoulder-length hair. Since the role of Ajay Rathod required just 8 days, he took up the role.

However, the shoulder-length role was still a problem and wouldn't have gone with his pilot character in Rang De Basanti. R Madhavan revealed that the makers organized a special wig for him, costing Rs. 70,000. Seeing the effort they are putting in to retain him, Madhavan writes that he couldn't refuse.

The first scene that R Madhavan shot was when he proposes to Soha Ali Khan. A shot required her to kiss her. At this, R Madhavan raised laughs as he wrote, "The only thing I could think of was Saif (Soha's brother, with whom I had worked before in a tense movie as rivals) socking my face. But I had to establish that I was an ideal boyfriend. This was probably her first on-screen kiss as well." The tense film mentioned by R Madhavan was Rehnaa Hai Terre Dil Mein (2001).

The kiss was important but Madhavan stated that Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra could sense the discomfort that the actors were facing. Hence, the filmmaker decided to keep the shot in a silhouette.

3 Best casino themed Bollywood films

Posted by on PP in

There’s a saying that goes that life often imitates art. However, another popular truth is that art also imitates art. It’s not a rare occurrence in art, culture, and media for one particular platform to borrow from another. It’s not necessarily just imitation. It also serves as a form of inspiration. For instance, there are many movies that inspire toys and merchandise. There are so many video games and books that have been turned into movies.

3 Best casino themed Bollywood films

Of course, Bollywood isn’t immune to the practice of borrowing art from one cultural entity to serve as an inspiration for storylines. There are also a bunch of different cultural entities and artforms out there that are inspired by Bollywood movies. For instance, in the world of online gambling, there are numerous popular slot games that have been inspired by successful Bollywood film franchises. Some well-loved examples include Pearls of India, Cricket Star, and Bollywood Story. They are incredibly successful slot games that are found on reputable online casino sites.

But for this article, we’re going to take a different approach. We already know that there are Bollywood-inspired casino games out there. But there are also a lot of well-produced casino-inspired Bollywood movies as well. Some of the more popular casino-themed movies to have come out of Hollywood include Ocean’s 11, Casino Royale and 21. But Bollywood also has its fair share of casino-themed films. In this list, we are going to run through the top casino-inspired Bollywood films:

1. Teen Patti: When you have names like Ben Kingsley, Amitabh Bachchan, and Shraddha Kapoor headlining a movie, then you know that it’s going to be a big deal. The story follows a central character named Venkat who is learning how to gamble. Ultimately, his goal is to win it big by hitting a jackpot at the casino. Along the way, he meets Percy, an incredibly popular and skilled mathematician who helps him as they both try to game the casino business. One by one, they hit one casino after another in the city of London. To a certain extent, the two of them find some success with their working theories.

So, Venkat decides to up the ante by inviting three students to a game of Teen Patti and a lot of trouble ensues from there. While the movie may not necessarily have been received well by critics, it’s still one of the most popular casino-based movies to have ever come out of Bollywood. It has a plotline that bears a striking resemblance to the hit 2008 film 21, starring Kevin Spacey. In that movie, Spacey, a mathematics professor at MIT, recruits a team of students and trains them to count cards in order to win Blackjack games at casinos.

2. Striker: Striker is another popular movie that tends to be a crowd favorite. One of the reasons that it’s so popular is that it’s a film that’s actually based on real-life events. Essentially, the plot of the movie follows a young boy named Surya. He struggles to survive in the Indian suburbs as a youngster. But he gets the opportunity of a lifetime when he finds himself being crowned a champion of a Carrom game at the age of 12. Many people dub him as a prodigy and a wonder. Eventually, Surya finds himself navigating the underground of the Indian gambling community. The film explores the corruption and greed that can strike a person as he finds success in gambling. The film stars Siddharth, who is quite popular in both Bollywood and South films.

3. Jannat: Last on this list is Jannat. It is a casino-themed film that also plays well to people who are more fond of romantic tropes and elements in storytelling. It premiered in 2008 and it stars Emraan Hashmi who plays a character named Arjun. He is a street-smart character who falls in love with a woman named Zoya, played by Sonal Chauhan. The story follows Arjun as he pursues a life of match-fixing, gambling, and illegal betting while also navigating his love story with Zoya.

EXCLUSIVE: Amar Upadhyay to resume shoot for Bhool Bhulaiyaa from August 10; says "the doctors have advised me to walk and by 5th-6th August I'll be walking completely"

Posted by on PP in

Actor Amar Upadhyay is currently seen as Virendra Pratap Singh in Colors Tv's popular social issue drama Molkki. Meanwhile, He'll be also a part of Kartik Aryaan and Kiara Advani starrer Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2. The actor had already shot some of the film's sequences back in February and March 2021. The shoot came to a halt after Kartik and Amar himself tested positive for the novel coronavirus. Amar will star opposite veteran actor Tabu in the film and will have an important role.

EXCLUSIVE Amar Upadhyay to resume shoot for Bhool Bhulaiyaa from August 10; says the doctors have advised me to walk and by 5th-6th August I'll be walking completely

The Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi actor also recently underwent surgery after suffered a ligament tear in his legs. Post that, he had already returned to the sets of his show Molkki despite being advised to complete bed rest for 3 weeks by the doctors.

In an exclusive chat with Bollywood Hungama, Amar Upadhyay talked about returning to the shoot of Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 and the experience of working with veteran actress Tabu. He also talked about how he managed to simultaneously shoot for a daily soap and a film where both the characters were polar opposites.

On resuming the shoot for Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 the actor said, "I'll start shooting for Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 from 10th August onwards and by that time I'll be walking. Yes, the doctors have advised me to walk and by 5th-6th August I'll be walking."

While Shooting for Molkki and Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 simultaneously and how managed to juggle between them the actor said, "I have been there for a very long time now, I have juggled so much work. I have done 3-4 daily soaps and 4-5 films at the same time. So, everything every show had different characters. I'm kind of very used to it now. I won't say it was easy earlier, it was very very difficult. But once I get out of my scenes from here, I immediately switch off. I have learned that over a period of time. I don't carry any Virendra Pratap Singh to the sets of Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 and anything of Kunwar, I don't get it to the sets of Molkki. I leave it there itself and when I'm out of my character by the end of the day, I'm back to Amar Upadhyay. I'm again being myself and joke around and laugh around, then I talk about anything at all."

He added, " When I got to a different shoot the next day, I think I'm absolutely fresh and charged. then, I think about the character, I think about the film and I take myself back to a couple of scenes that I have done earlier mentally that how I sat, how I reacted, how I behave and how I spoke and recollect my whole story of Bhool Bhulaiyaa. Then, When I come back to Molkki, I do the same thing. It actually comes with experience and you have to concentrate a lot while doing a couple of films together and different characters. Because characters are not looking similar and they are very different, they behave very different, they talk different and one is a film and the other is a daily soap and an absolutely different ballgame. It might have been very difficult for me had I been a newcomer or a new bee in the industry with just a couple of years old experience. But, thankfully, these kinds of challenging roles have come to me together. I also have good 27 years of experience behind my back."

Lastly, he shared his experience working with Tabu and expressed, "She is an amazing professional artist. She is so good. She comes well prepared on the sets. She knows her lines, she knows what to do. She is very very good as a co-star because she gets along with everyone. She makes everybody else comfortable with her despite being a huge star and a fantastic wonderful star. So, I think the way she approaches her role and the way she handles herself and others around her is what I learnt that no matter nig or huge star you become but you have to handle yourself. And also to be humbled and grounded, no matter how big you become in life and on top of that being professional you have to come well-prepared on the sets, you can't just say that I'm a star and I'll do it anyways and it'll work. People have that lethargic attitude but she is very good. It's kind of very amazing and lovely working with her and I had a great time."

Aishwarya Khare and Rohit Suchanti's Zee TV show Bhagya Lakshmi is a story of love, karma and destiny

Posted by on PP in

After several super-successful collaborations such as Hum Paanch, Saat Phere, Pavitra Rishta, Jodha Akbar, Kumkum Bhagya, Kundali Bhagya and Brahmarakshas, Zee TV and Balaji Telefilms are all set to present viewers with an exciting new story about life, love, karma and destiny – Bhagya Lakshmi. Set in Mumbai, Zee TV’s Bhagya Lakshmi will follow the journey of Lakshmi, a selfless girl of limited means, who despite her humble background and the curveballs life has thrown at her, always puts others’ needs before hers and lives for others’ happiness in a thousand little ways every single day, inspiring her audience to pray for destiny to treat her kind.  The show is all set to premiere on 3rd August and will air every Monday to Saturday at 8:30 pm only on Zee TV.

Aishwarya Khare and Rohit Suchanti's Zee TV show Bhagya Lakshmi is a story of love, karma and destiny (1)

Essayed by Aishwarya Khare, Lakshmi is a sweet, small-town girl from Punjab who finds herself in the big city of Mumbai after her parent's demise. A true believer of God’s plans and the power of destiny, she is a kind soul who invests in good karma. On the other hand, that someone who’s destined to be her’s is none other than Rishi Oberoi, portrayed by Rohit Suchanti - a rich, young industrialist who is convinced he is his own life’s architect, and it is up to him to design it the way he wants. Rishi is very practical as a person and believes in the power of seizing the moment and carving your own path. Having taken over his father’s business, he works very hard every day but believes in partying just as hard. When a quirk of destiny and the most unusual circumstances have Lakshmi cross paths with Rishi, their bhagyas change forever!

Being someone naturally selfless – a person who believes in helping others without expecting anything in return, Lakshmi embarked on a journey of saluting selflessness. She reached out to some truly exceptional COVID heroes from across India who in the course of the pandemic, ended up prioritizing the needs of others before themselves, putting themselves at risk and helping humanity in a significant way. During her search across social media, Lakshmi came across Javed Khan from Bhopal who converted his auto into an ambulance for COVID patients unable to reach hospitals for critical care, Abhishek Gupta of Lucknow who with his friends helped perform the final rites and cremation of COVID victims when their own families couldn’t, Harsh and his mother Heena Mandavia of Mumbai who run a tiffin service and managed to feed thousands of underprivileged citizens free food & sweets and Sourav and his mother Lakshmi Das from Delhi who made affordable masks at home and distributed them for free to thousands of poor people. Her conversations with these like-minded, real-life ‘Lakshmis’ reinforced her faith that kindness still exists - #NekiParYakeen! This, in turn led Lakshmi to spark off a noble initiative called #NekiKiDor wherein she encourages social media denizens to come forth and do a simple good deed for the day, help someone, spread positivity and share it with the rest of us, so that this chain of benevolence keeps growing with each passing day, inspiring more and more people to do good. The entries pouring in from across the length and breadth of the country in response to her plea have been overwhelming.

Speaking about the launch of the show, Zee TV Business Head Aparna Bhosle mentioned, “Our collaboration with Balaji Telefilms is a time-tested one with some of television’s most precious gems having come out of our joint synergies. From Hum Paanch in 1995 to Kumkum Bhagya and Kundali Bhagya that still continue to rule people’s hearts on our primetime, we continue to co-create content that strongly resonates with our audiences. Our latest labour of love is a story about someone selfless in a selfish world – a girl who believes in prioritizing the needs of others above her own and expects precious little in return. Viewers will root for destiny to treat her kind as we all want to see good things happen to those who live a life of good values and good karma. But is life always that simple? Viewers can tune in to find out! This new addition to our primetime is only the first of several exciting new content offerings coming up on Zee TV this festive season and we hope our new protagonists connect well with our viewers.”

Balaji Telefilms’ producer, Ekta Kapoor also shared, “Lakshmi is one of the purest souls we have worked on as a character in a long time. She represents inherent goodness – neki … a value that’s perhaps diminished in people’s vocabulary over the years but shouldn’t. As mankind, we’ve been through a lot lately and some of the toughest times have a way of bringing forth shining examples of kindness and benevolence. We’ve all read stories of people who went out on a foot during the pandemic and helped others in need. Lakshmi’s a lot like that. And when you see someone like that, you fall in love with them and want to see life presenting them with good bhagya. Aishwarya Khare with her endearing sincerity and warmth is the right fit for Lakshmi and Rohit (Suchanti) will win hearts as always with his role as the flamboyant, practical and dashing Rishi. I look forward to the show’s launch on Zee TV, a channel that holds an extremely special place in my heart and hope that Lakshmi touches the hearts of our viewers.”

Talking about her character as well as the show, Aishwarya Khare mentioned, “I am quite excited to be playing Lakshmi’s character. In fact, the moment I read the script, I felt an instant connection with her. While Lakshmi and I are different personalities, I feel there is a very strong connection between both of us and that is our common belief in Karma. Just like Lakshmi, I truly believe that you get what you deserve in life and selflessness and kindness towards others always attract the blessings of destiny. Lakshmi’s story is very different from some of the characters I have portrayed until now, which makes the whole process even more exciting. I am eager to see how this character is received on television and I hope our viewers will be able to relate to her story and get inspired by her journey.”

Speaking about his character and the show, Rohit also added, “I believe Bhagya Lakshmi brings forth a very unique story, something very distinct from what we have seen on television till date. My character Rishi is a very grounded and practical person who believes in shaping his life his own way. He believes in working hard, but also knows how to celebrate those victories. There is a lot of similarity between us, and I am sure I am going to have a lot of fun exploring this character. I hope the audience loves me in this new avatar and keeps showering me with their blessings like they always have.”

Bhagya Lakshmi starts 3rd August every Monday to Saturday at 8:30 pm only on Zee TV.

EXCLUSIVE: "Marathi cinema needs to create heroes," says actor Gashmeer Mahajani

Posted by on PP in

A film is an amalgamation of several things, right from good content to massy actors. While everyone has a different perspective on their choice of films, actor Gashmeer Mahajani has a substantial point to make. In this exclusive interview, the actor admits that Marathi cinema needs to create heroes, and the reason behind it is something that has the potential to bring in a radicalistic change that has been longing for a long time now. After being around for more than six years and earning the tag of the 'undisputed superstar' Gashmeer feels that, unlike the other industries, the Marathi industry lacks in this aspect.

EXCLUSIVE: "Marathi cinema needs to create heroes," says actor Gashmeer Mahajani

Explaining his point in an elucidated way, Gashmeer says, "Marathi cinema needs to create heroes because you see in the regional cinema they have created heroes. Telugu and Tamil cinema have heroes, they have content as well but they need to create heroes. Because 'A Hero' is someone which is created by an intelligent director, scriptwriter or producer who has a certain following on the basis of which people will go and watch the film in the theaters".

Furthermore, he stresses on the fact that 'Heroes' are no longer gender-specific, as the female-centric films are also been watched on a large scale. He says, "And by this I don't only mean the male leads, because it is no longer gender-specific. Because nowadays people go and watch movies if there's a particular heroine or if the film is female-centric. But here I am talking about creating faces and if you see at par Tamil and Telugu cinema is beyond Bollywood also because there they have created heroes on the basis of which people will spend 400-500 bucks to watch the film. And that goes up to 2000 if you spend an evening with your entire family in a multiplex so it has to be that entertaining, but in Marathi cinema just because they want to sell content they are not focusing on the other factor because of which they are unable to make money. If that thing is fixed then I think Marathi cinema has come long way".

On the professional front, the actor who has had a significant repertoire in the Marathi cinema is currently winning hearts as Aditya Tripathi in Imlie.
