Posted by on PP in

EXCLUSIVE: “Indian press made it out to be that I had shattered her emotionally and therefore she went crazy”- Kabir Bedi on his relationship with Parveen Babi

In his book, Kabir Bedi also explained in detail about his relationship with Parveen Babi and about her mental health. Ahead of the book launch, Kabir Bedi spoke to Bollywood Hungama about Parveen Babi and her mental health. “When you love somebody, you want to take care of them. I realised late there were problems and I wanted to be her protector. I mentioned that her problems could have begun in the childhood because she used to see spirits in the monuments around the house that were related to her family's history,” he said.

“There is an instant where I mentioned that when Parveen had one of her disturbing episodes her mother told Mahesh Bahtt, her father used to be like that. So my question was could it be genetics that could have created that situation as well. The third instance which you mentioned is that during the riots in Ahmedabad, the matron or the warden of the college put all the Muslim girls of teh college in the back of a truck and put mattresses over them, and that was where she had her first panic attack. That too was probably the first manifestation of panic attack we knew about. It could have happened earlier, but it is the one we new about,” Kabir further revealed.

“What hurt me the most when Parveen and I separated and she came back to India, I don't want to give away this but I had other hopes from her and hopes to help her. But she left and came back for reasons of her own which is detailed in the book. But the entire Indian press made it out to be that I had shattered her emotionally and therefore she had gone crazy. Terrible things were written about me. I didn't counter it at that time. I knew she was coming back to Bombay to rebuild her career. She had left India with me and people were upset. So she had to rebuild her career. I let people say what they had to say. I let Parveen rebuild her career. Five years laters I gave an interview to Stardust where I clarified what actually happened. I didn't say anything after that , no matter what people said. Now, in my book I have finally said the truth as it was, what actually happened, what led to our journey outside India and what led to her coming back, followed her coming back, graph of our careers through the years until the point she died. And the way we related even after we split up and my last meeting with her at Holiday Inn few years before she died,” he concluded.

Sonu Sood on his Covid vaccination campaign & being appointed Punjab's ambassador for vaccination

Posted by on PP in

Congratulations, your thoughts on being appointed Punjab's ambassador for vaccination?
It's a huge honour. To be given such a responsibility is not a small thing. I am honoured, more so because I am from Punjab. My parents would have been so proud of me.

Sonu Sood on his Covid vaccination campaign & being appointed Punjab's ambassador for vaccination

Tell me about your all-India vaccination campaign?
The vaccination awareness is very important. So my organization is connected with 4891 villages in 6 states where we will provide free vaccination and create awareness on how important the vaccination is. We have called our campaign Sanjeevani.

Why do you think there is a need to create awareness about the vaccination?
I have realized a lot of people are shying away from taking the vaccination. They’ve their own notions and fundas on how unsafe the vaccination is. It’s high time we started a trust campaign for the vaccination so that those who are suspicious of the vaccine would realize it is completely safe. It will enhance the safety of the individual and the nation as a whole.

How successful have you been so far in creating that awareness?
Our campaign is going really well. We’ve already got thousands of people vaccinated and many more are waiting in the queue. I think we are doing what we can in our own small way to create an atmosphere of health safety.

What do you feel about the second wave of Covid that has hit us?
Yes, the second wave is upon us. But this time we are not caught napping. Neither are we sitting idle doing nothing for the distressed during lockdown. This second wave is a reminder that all those who couldn’t do anything to help the needy during last year’s pandemic need to get up and tap into their conscience and resources. This time we are more prepared, far more organized and we’ve more incentive to come forward with a helping hand.

What about the losses to the entertainment industry?
Yes, the pandemic is a big blow to the movie business. And we are going to suffer heavy losses. To get audiences to come back to movie theatres is going to be very difficult. But then these are trials and tribulations which make us stronger. I am sure after the vaccination audiences will return to movie theatres. It may take some time. But it will happen. This is not the first time that our entertainment industry has faced a crisis.

Huma Qureshi on playing Rabri Devi in new web series

Posted by on PP in

Looking at the first teaser of SonyLiv’s forthcoming political drama Maharani it is clear as daylight that the series is based on Rabri Devi’s ascent to the Chief Minister’s throne after her husband was disqualified from contesting elections.

Huma Qureshi on playing Rabri Devi in new web series

In fact sources in the know say the series was planned as a real-life bio-pic. But with the new Information & Broadcasting Ministry’s guidelines, the names of real politicians had to be camouflaged. Hence Rabri Devi becomes Rani Bharti.

Actor Sohum Shah recently seen playing Harshad Mehta (renamed Hemant Shah)’s brother in The Big Bull plays Lalu Yadav.

Subhash Kapoor who has created the series seems fascinated by powerful women politicians of North India. His last directorial Madam Chief Minister featured Richa Chadha as former Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mayawati, though again her name was changed. As for Huma Qureshi as the Rabri Devi doppelganger, going by the teaser she has worked hard to transform into a cow belt politician. How much she has succeeded we shall soon know.

Speaking excitedly about her part of the politician, Huma says, “It's not often that you get to portray a character that lets you explore so many layers as a performer. Rani Bharti has been a delight to play. She starts off as someone whom we all know and relate to but what she goes onto become is someone few of us can aspire for. It has been a wonderful experience of working with such a talented cast and I can’t wait for my viewers to watch the series.”

"It's the biggest win of my life," Adarsh Gourav on losing the BAFTA to Anthony Hopkins

Posted by on PP in

For all of us who were hoping to see Adarsh Gourav win the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) award for his stunning portrayal of an underdog’s revenge on Capitalism in The White Tiger, I feel we were all living in a fool’s paradise. At least two of the nominees Chadwick Boseman in Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom and Anthony Hopkins in The Father were far more deserving of the honour.

"It's the biggest win of my life," Adarsh Gourav on losing the BAFTA to Anthony Hopkins

It was presumed Chadwick’s untimely death would tilt the scales in his favour. But BAFTA surprised us. It gave the Best Actor to Anthony Hokpins for his portrayal of impossibly difficult patriarch struck by dementia in The Father. Sir Anthony’s performance exudes the find of fabulous fumes that spread their fragrance of excellence for years to come.

No one deserved the BAFTA more than Anthony Hopkins. Adarsh Gourav acknowledged this when minutes after losing the award he told me, “It is the biggest win of my life.”

And to that I may add, many many more occasions to win awards are on the anvil. Significantly this year both the BAFTA for best actor and actress have gone to performers past 70. Again Frances MacDormand not getting awarded for Nomadland would have been too much of a cop-out. Just because she is no stranger to awards it doesn’t follow that she should be put on the backseat. Ms MacDormand is spectacularly authentic in Nomadland. I didn’t catch a single false note in her portrayal.

The Indian presence at the BAFTA awards was strong this year. Besides Adarsh Gourav, Irrfan and Rishi Kapoor were honoured. Priyanka Chopra regaled her fans on the red carpet in a dangerously risqué dress. I wonder why our actresses don’t wear the Saree which is the most beautiful apparel in the universe, especially when they represent us on an international platform.

Karan Johar unveils the trailer of Netflix's Searching for Sheela, her journey of returning to India after over three decades

Posted by on PP in

The world cannot get enough of her as the intrigue around her continues to be as alluring as ever. Be it her outspoken personality or her astounding journey, Ma Anand Sheela is and will always be a controversial (yet sassy) figure. After the phenomenal reception to Wild Wild Country, Netflix returns with Searching For Sheela, a raw, authentic docu-film that explores Sheela’s journey through India after 34 long years and sheds light on her new life post serving time for her alleged crimes. But has the world really let go of the past? ‘Searching for Sheela’ is all set to premiere on April 22, 2021 on Netflix.

Karan Johar unveils the trailer of Netflix's Searching for Sheela, her journey of returning to India after over three decades

With the focus entirely on Sheela and her personality, the docu-film explores her journey through India, her big homecoming, while reminiscing about her early life and looking forward to what’s next! It digs deeper in search of Sheela’s true self, her life, and perspective. Does Sheela seek redemption or remain completely unaffected? Was Sheela a criminal or a woman in love? Is Sheela good or bad, black or white? Watch ‘Searching For Sheela’ for these answers as there are ample shades of grey.

Commenting on ‘Searching for Sheela’ and her journey, Sheela Birnstiel, the lady taking centre stage, says, ‘Searching for Sheela’ will give you a glimpse of my real self, my identity, my life, and its evolution over the last 40 years. This film is about my journey of returning to my home in India, a journey I have longed for many years. It captures the rollercoaster of emotions I experienced on this journey very well. I am looking forward to sharing my story with the world”

Speaking about the docu-film, Executive Producer, Shakun Batra said, “I have always been very intrigued by Sheela’s extraordinary life and through this documentary, we’ve shadowed her as she traveled to India after almost 35 years. This is not an investigative piece, just an observation of a person who has had a questionable past and has always lived life on her own terms. We trace her journey as she grapples with society’s expectations of an ex-convict and attempts to re-brand the public opinion of herself. ‘Searching for Sheela’ is a documentary that tries to get a closer look at one of the most sensationalized personalities in India and I am grateful to Netflix for providing us with a platform and a safe space to share her story.”

Witness Ma Anand Sheela - Raw, Honest, and Uncomplicated - as Searching for Sheela premieres on April 22 on Netflix!

I worry about his little emotions, how will he feel and express himself while he’s yet learning how to talk. Precious boy you are so loved and will be ever so even when your sister arrives in ten weeks. On another note, so thankful the beaches in Hong Kong have opened after endless months of lockdowns. They are truly more magical and cleaner than I’ve ever seen them. April is my favourite beach month here - the water is still crisp, the sun not too hot and the beaches not yet super crowded. Love that this year Leo gets to share the beach with us. He already loves the water. Maybe he’ll be an early swimmer."

Posted by on PP in

Often times, it so happens when two celebrities end up in the same outfits. But, it doesn't have to always be "who wore it the best" or a "fashion face-off". We can simply appreciate that both celebrities are looking absolutely stunning in their own way. Recently, Bollywood Hungama came across popular Korean actress Lee Ji Ah's Instagram account where she was wearing a stunning gown which we had earlier seen on Bollywood actress Alia Bhatt.

Back in 2019, Alia Bhatt attended the IIFA Awards (International Indian Film Academy Awards) in a stunning peach strapless gown by Georges Chakra.

Posted by on PP in

EXCLUSIVE: A.R.Rahman opens up on the misconceptions about him in the industry

Opening up about the misconceptions and rumours about him that he has come across, Rahman said, “I was doing Imtiaz Ali's movies. Till Tamasha, I did the movies and then I started these two movies. So people thought he was going to produce his movies and do his own thing. That might have been a misconception. Another misconception is ‘Oh! He is in Hollywood. He is doing a lot of stuff.”

“Another misconception is we do not need him, we have five other composers, we can get the stuff. Big music companies are doing that now. If they mention, ‘I want A.R. Rahman’, they say ‘no no he is in Hollywood now. etc take these five composers. I have got these five hit tunes. I can give you a package, I can also finance the movies’. This kind of thing. These can be rumours But I have heard crazy things. I felt like sometimes you have to express what you have. Nothing in a negative way. Sometimes we are all in our different worlds. So, it was important people should know where I stand. I stand with them and the promise of doing music is always there,”he added.


A.R.Rahman is currently looking forward to the release of 99 Songs. The movie will mark Rahman’s debut as writer and producer. The film is scheduled to hit the theatres on April 16.

Posted by on PP in

Singer-composer Sajid Khan's wife Lubna had donated her kidney to his late brotehr Wajid Khan. Wajid passed away last year. The family revealed the incident on the music reality show Indian Pro Music League in a special episode dedicated to Wajid.

Music composer Sajid Khan’s wife Lubna had donated kidney to late Wajid Khan

On the show, Sajid-Wajid's mother Razine revealed how her daughter-in-law donated her kidney to Wajid without letting anyone know about it. "We had asked all our relatives. However, no one came forward. During that time, Lubna secretly got all her tests done and gave him her kidney. In today’s time, even parents don’t give kidneys to their kids, but she gave it without thinking twice," she said on the show.

“When I heard that someone else can also donate him a kidney, I didn’t ask anyone. I just got all the tests done. Before the last test, I told Wajid everything and told him that if we’re a match, we’ll go for a transplant. He was very upset, but I told him, ‘you’re very important to me’, and that left him speechless. The person who has always stood by everyone, if his family doesn’t stand by him in his time of need, then it is very shameful. Thankfully, we were a match. Sajid, my mother, and my children were very supportive,”Lubna said.

Sajid, who is a captain of one of the teams on the reality show, said, “Wajid was unwell for two years and my mom took care of him on a daily basis. We requested her to go home and rest, but she never left the room where Wajid was living. There was a time when my wife went to the hospital, got all the paperwork done, and was ready to give Wajid her Kidney. I was scared, even my kids were worried, but I am really proud of what she did.”

EXCLUSIVE: “A lot of people came back from abroad and blamed us”- A.R. Rahman on the impact of Swades

Posted by on PP in

There are several films in Indian cinema that did not receive much love and appreciation during its release, but with the course of time it went on to prove its worth. One such film is Ashutosh Gowariker’s Swades starring Shah Rukh Khan which was released in 2004. The film tells the story of an Indian expatriate employed with NASA, who travels back to the country to find his nanny, but ends up advocating for the reform of a village. The music of the film was done by A.R. Rahman and all the tracks of the movie are still popular among the masses. However, Rahman recently revealed that the film did not receive the warmth and love that it receives today back when it had released.

EXCLUSIVE: “A lot of people came back from abroad and blamed us”- A.R. Rahman on the impact of Swades

In an interview with Bollywood Hungama, while talking about Swades, A.R. Rahman said, “I felt that it is the most underrated movie. When it came, people pulled Ashutosh (Gowariker) and all of us down. But, you know, very rarely does a movie make an impact on life. Swades, Ashutosh's script and Shah Rukh playing the part more than Shah Rukh himself that was genius. At that time it felt like it was an underwhelming movie. But the impact which it created, the song ‘Ye Jo Desh’, whether it is in Hindi or Tamil. So it's actually one of the highlights in our concert and not just because it is a song, it is very rare that a song and movie's essence go to the inner core of the soul. And this is one such movie. A lot of people have come back and blamed us, ‘because of you guys I came back from the US came from Australia, Europe back to India to make Indian what it is.”


Meanwhile, A.R Rahman is currently looking forward to the release of the film 99 Songs for which he has turned producer and writer for the first time. The film is scheduled to hit the theatres on April 16.
