Nawazuddin Siddiqui Unveils Manto Motion Poster

Actor #NawazuddinSiddiqui unveils the motion poster of much-awaited drama based on famous Indo-Pakistani author, writer #SaadatHasanManto.

nawazuddin-siddiqui-unveils-manto-poster
The actor Nawaz shared the poster on his social media account. He wrote, “The world wrote about him. He wrote what the world couldn’t. Teaser out today! #Manto @Mantofilm @Viacom18Movies @HP @nanditadas #Filmstoc @MagicIfFilms @RasikaDugal @TahirRajBhasin @Javedakhtarjadu @gurdasmaan @jatishvarma @SameerDixxit @ShamasSiddiqui”

The teaser of the film will be out today!

The film follows the most tumultuous four years in the life of Manto and that of the two countries he inhabits – India and Pakistan. He was one of the greatest short story writers of his generation, and certainly the best-known and most controversial one from South Asia.

His short stories set during the devastating partition of the Indian subcontinent were his defining works. These irreverent, unflinching but deeply humane stories, earned him the wrath of the colonial British government and later of independent Pakistan.

The stories were deemed obscene by the courts and he spent his last years fighting legal battles to defend his right to write. Today, his work is seen by both scholars and the reading public as one of the most authentic and independent accounts of the human tragedy of those years.

Manto is written and directed by Nandita Das. The film stars Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Tahir Raj Bhasin, Rasika Dugal, Feryna Wazheir, Rajshri Deshpande and Purab Kohli.

Amitabh Bachchcan Credited Polio Workers

#BigB who has been known to drive change in society whether its the campaign for Polio or the #SwachBharatAbhiyan, says he would like to give credit to the workers on the field for India's success against polio.

Amitabh Bachchan along with Gaurav Jain, R B Amesh Health and Vikram Chandra was present at the Banega Swach India season 5 launch.

Veteran actor Amitabh Bachchan who has been associated with the polio campaign since the get-go said, India becoming Polio free is all thanks to the people who actually worked on the field.

"We have left out the workers. They are the most important people. I did a campaign for Polio in India and after working for 8 years we were able to succeed and get India polio-free. But let me tell you the maximum amount of work and the credit goes to those workers who went to cities and villages and gave the two drops of polio vaccination. When the time came and India became polio-free a success party was organized. I asked who all were invited, and told them specifically to invite the workers who actually worked for the cause. Around 2000 people were invited and facilitated for their work.  

These are the actual people who work, we sit here and talk but they are the reason we are polio-free so I want to give the credit to them."

The fifth season NDTV-Dettol Banega Swachh India will be focusing mainly on children as agents of change, who can inspire and motivate others to do the needful for a cleaner and healthier India. Amitabh Bachchan, who is the campaign Ambassador said we personally need to make the change and not wait for others to do the work. "Each one of us should go back today and think about what needs to be done. We all must take responsibility individually to ensure better sanitation and hygiene for India,"

‘Parmanu – The Story of Pokhran’ is not an anti-Pakistan

Actor #JohnAbraham who is gearing up for the release of his upcoming film #ParmanuTheStoryofPokhran has said that his film is not an anti-Pakistan film but it’s a pro-India film.

parmanu-story-of-pokhran-is-not-anti-pakistan
John was interacting with media in Mumbai at the trailer launch of his upcoming film ‘Parmanu – The Story of Pokharan along with other actors Diana Penty, Anuja Sathe, Aditya Hitkari, director Abhishek Sharma and writers Sanyuktha Chawla Sheikh, Saiwyn Quadras on Friday coinciding with the 20th anniversary of India's nuclear test explosions at Pokhran.

Generally, Pakistan censor board censors Indian films in Pakistan which shows Pakistan in negative light so, when asked John what are his plans to release “Parmanu – The Story of Pokaran’ in Pakistan, he said,   “We are coming with 300 screens in Pakistan. This is not an anti-Pakistan film, it’s a pro-India film so we are very clear that this is a film about India and we are very proud of this moment and we want to celebrate this. If we start thinking about other markets, we will be compromising on our film as we want to tell the story as it is and we don’t want to deviate from that.”

John will mark his come back on big screen almost after 2 years as he was last seen in ‘Force 2’ which released in 2016, so when asked why he takes so much of gap when it comes to release his films, he said,  “I like taking time. I wanted a good subject so after force, I think it was only ‘Parmanu’. Out of insecurity, I would have signed 10 films but I didn’t want to do that. I just want to do one film and I am very happy that ‘Parmanu’ is my next film so, I don’t have problem waiting.. it is absolutely okay”

The film was in a lockdown after its initial co-producers JA Entertainment and KriArj Entertainment became at loggerheads.

John had filed criminal cases against Prernaa Arora and her company KriArj Entertainment, for cheating, breach of trust, defamation and offences committed under the Information Technology Act.

The Bombay High Court ruled in favour of John's banner, ceasing the film's association with KriArj Entertainment, reacting to whole controversy, John said, “I think we have been through a journey. I think releasing this film is like conducting a nuclear test so we finally made it happen. I think everything happens for the best. We want to bring positivity around the film and we want to speak good things about the film. We are not here to throw mud on anybody’s face. We want to keep it clean.”

Not well equipped to do an adult comedy says John Abraham

Actor #JohnAbraham who is known making content driven cinema as producer has said that he and his production team is not well equipped to do an adult comedy.

not-well-equipped-to-do-adult-comedy-says-john-abraham
John was interacting with media in Mumbai at the trailer launch of his upcoming film ‘Parmanu – The Story of Pokharan along with other actors Diana Penty, Anuja Sathe, Aditya Hitkari, director Abhishek Sharma and writers Sanyuktha Chawla Sheikh, Saiwyn Quadras on Friday coinciding with the 20th anniversary of India's nuclear test explosions at Pokhran.

John Abraham has produced critically acclaimed films like ‘Vicky Donor’ and ‘Madras Cafe’ under his production house, so when asked John what could be reason that Hindi film industry has escapist attitude when it comes to making film like ‘Parmanu – The Story of Pokhran’, he said, “There is a saying in management that ‘the higher the risk, the greater the profit’ so, if you do not take a risk and do something different then you will make stereotypical films only so, you have to move on from there. I think it’s important to make different films and I am getting the opportunity to make those films because I am a producer also now so, I have the authority to decide on which film I will work on. I have got a fantastic team with me which pushes to dwell into different kind of scripts.”

“We have decided internally that we cannot make an adult comedy because that is not our strength and we are not well equipped to do it but we can make a story like ‘Parmanu..’, “Madras Cafe’ Vicky Donor’ and even film like ‘Force’ but we cannot do things that are not within our grain”

When asked John what prompted him to make film nuclear test in India, he said, “First of all, our motive was to make an entertaining film. We didn’t wanted to make a documentary so it’s a very entertaining film and people who have seen this film in our office has told me that it has been best film made on India so when you get that kind of reaction , you feel amazing. Earlier internationally, there was film named ‘Argo’ and it was edge of the seat film so ‘Parmanu’ also has got that thing. I don’t think audience will move through 1 hour of the film and that was our effort”

“Another interesting aspect of the film is that while we were about to conduct nuclear test United States of America threatened us that if you will conduct it, you will be boycotted. It’s about how we conducted and in what circumstances we did this. I think the story is very interesting because this is the biggest case of nuclear espionage in the world ever to do it under the nose of rival nation and during that time it was biggest failure of CIA (American intelligence agency) and they have admitted it on record”

Amitabh Bachchan on reuniting with Rishi Kapoor - 102 Not Out

#AmitabhBachchan, #RishiKapoor, Director Umesh Shukla was present at the success meant of #102NotOut on Thursday. 

amitabh-bachchan-on-reuniting-with-rishi-kapoor-102-not-out
The film '102 Not Out' released on 4th May reunited Amitabh Bachchan and Rishi Kapoor together on a big screen after 27 years. When asked, how many more years will they take to work together again, Amitabh Bachchan said, "We were waiting for someone to bring us together and make a film for us. We have worked in so many films together and the environment has always been good. Now that we have worked on this one together hopefully more such opportunities. Now we are father and son then we can become dada- nana, two fathers, two brothers, just someone should be ready to write a story. "

The Veteran actor on the success party also expressed his views on the criticism the film received. Praising co actor  Jimit Trivedi he said, We were told that our accents were not convincing other than Jimit who has done a fantastic job in the film. Sometimes it is expected that just because you are playing a particular character from a particular state or region it is expected that you have that accent but in normal life, Gujarati speak very normally. 

But in other places, we have tried o show that they are Gujarati. Like they didn't wear shoes inside their house and used a light accent when using English words like record. If we used a thick accent it wouldn't have been easy for people from other regions."

Talking about the film's scenes being restricted to the house both characters lived in, he said, "I think I don't have an argument for that. I think Umesh-Ji wanted the house to be middle class and the scene restricted to the home because everything that happens in the film is contained within the four walls. Yes, there were opportunities when we went out and those were beyond any kind of grand exploration. I think if we had added a lot of glamour and grandness to the film the crux of the story would have been destroyed."

Rishi Kapoor was interacting with media along with Amitabh Bachchan,  Director Umesh at the success meet of ‘102 Not Out’ on Thursday.

Rishi Kapoor when talking about criticism the film received he said, "People have said that the film looks like a play, it is because you know it is a play. my father made a film called Sangam, its running time for 4 and half hours and there were only three characters. Nobody complaint about it then that it looks like a play. in this case, you do because it is based on a play and everyone knows that. I think that I one criticism which is uncalled for."

When asked why they choose to leave the 'Badumbaa' out of the story line, the film's director Umesh Shukla said, `When we designed the song, we did only for the promotional reasons. If we would have added the song before Chintu-ji's journey in the past its impact would have reduced. He can be seen dancing in the song and it would have changed the character's impact and emotional journey."

Veteran Amitabh Bachchan was asked how the family reacted to the film, he said, "Everyone watched the film and kids loved it but Madam's reaction to my work is always serious. Usually, she (Jaya) doesn't say much but this time she said something different. She said the film's timing is amazing. When there are big films like Avenger's releasing this small film will definitely set place in everyone's heart. And she was right, it did."

Manoj Pahwa - 'Veere Di Wedding' is very modern film

Veteran actor #ManojPahwa, who will be seen in #VeereDiWedding, says the film's story has a modern outlook that emphasises the freedom of choice women have in the new age society.

manoj-pahwa-veere-di-wedding-is-very-modern-film
Talking about his character in ‘Veerey Di Wedding’ Pahwa said, “I am playing the father-in-law of Kareena Kapoor Khan's character in the film. Though the length of my role in the narration is not huge, I agreed to do the film because of the story.

"I think 'Veere Di Wedding' is a very modern film on women empowerment. When we talk about empowerment and gender equality, we mainly focus on education, job opportunity and financial independence. But this film talks about the choice of personal lifestyle as well.

"Though it is an out-and-out commercial film with four women actors of Bollywood, and offers a high value of entertainment, the film has more to say. It is a very modern film that questions why a girl has to face questions and doubt from the society if they choose to be single or in a living relationship after a certain age? I really liked the approach of its storytelling."

"My character pushes his son to get married to the girl who he is in a live-in relation with. However, when they decide to get married, the girl finds it difficult to deal with the complication in a relationship that comes along with a marriage. The story moves forward with what happens then."

On the existence of the casting couch, Jigar said: "I would say (it is) everywhere. It is there, of course nobody wants it to be there, but it has been there and it still exists, I feel. It is something I will strongly oppose and do not believe in, but at the same time I want people to know that it is not only in Bollywood it is just everywhere and it's absolutely disgusting."

Sachin said that for him and Jigar, it has always been about discovering a new voice or a new lyric writer.
"That changes the way our sound is and maybe that casting couch is really meant for bringing about new talent to focus. And I hope that it finds its true meaning. I just hope that people come off their dirty little ideas and make way for talent who focus more," he added.

#AnshulGarg who holds a prestigious badge of being the "Youngest Achiever Award Winner 2017" has said that he is going to announce a movie by the end of this year and he would also be part of that film.

multi-talented-anshul-garg-soon-going-to-announce-movie
Anshul is also the owner of Desi Music Industry, who was given a choice by his father to choose between pursuing his education abroad or settling down with his family business. He went with his instincts and set up a food business. It is interesting to note that he invested his keen passion in setting up the decor for his restaurant with an eye for colors and designs, which according to him should match the taste of the city and the customers. It wasn't a one-day decision rather a thought through research of finding new ideas for his newly established venture.

The young man has done all the justice for his love towards Music & Food by balancing them equally at every step and hasn't left any stone unturned in bringing laurels to his family by being an achiever in all his endeavors.

According to his perspective there isn't any specific genre that entitles itself to be tagged under a good music, rather it could be anything created with passion and creativity that makes it go to places.

His dedication reflects through his planning in his passion towards Music that states that he will be coming up with 50 Songs this year. His recent track "La La La" has set a mark for itself by being the second most trending Song on YouTube and other digital platforms.
