Janhvi Kapoor said, “I think both of us (Khushi and I) would like to thank the jury for recognizing the hard work, perseverance and dedication that my mother has put into this role. It was very special to her and we are very happy that she is being appreciated for it." On work front, she will be seen in Karan Johar’s Dhadak opposite Shahid Kapoor’s kid brother Ishaan Khatter.

  • SHOCKING: Sushmita Sen narrates a horrific incident of being molested by a 15-year-old boy
    Tue, 22 May 18, 07:30:01

    SHOCKING: Sushmita Sen narrates a horrific incident of being molested by a 15-year-old boy Sushmita Sen, the woman who has changed norms, has time and again proven that she is a beauty with brains. The modern-turned-actress is poised but has been always outspoken about all kinds of issues. From being a single mother to two girls to doing philanthropic work, she has always been an inspiration to many. It is known the recent rape cases in Kathua and Unnao have brought back the tragic memories of Nirbhaya case and once again raised the questions of women safety in India. Time and again, women have felt unsafe in every phase in their lives. Narrating the same, Sushmita Sen recently opened up about being harassed by a 15-year-old recently. At a press conference recently, Sushmita Sen was asked about the women safety in the country and how current scenario is very tragic. To this, she replied, “In small cities, they are surely unsafe because their news doesn’t reach you (media). But I am a woman, and I have been in the public eye for 25 years. So many times people think, ‘What would you know what happens to women in our country? You have bodyguards around you, all these facilities to protect you.' Where you are eve-teased by two, we as women in the public eye, even with 10 bodyguards, are dealing with hundreds of men that have often managed to misbehave with us. And we know exactly how it happens in this country, trust me, in volumes.” Sushmita said, “But the difference is that at this age, the last time it happened was six months ago. I was at an awards function, you were there as well. A 15-year-old… 15! And because there were so many men, he thought I wouldn’t figure out who it was. That’s why I tell you, learn something regarding self-defence, it makes you very alert. So, I grabbed his hand, and I was so shocked when I pulled him up, that he was a little boy. 15 years old. Typically for misbehaviour like that, I could’ve taken lots of other actions. But because it was a 15-year-old boy, I grabbed him by his neck, as if I was saying hello to him, I took him for a walk in front of the crowd and told him, ‘If I make a hue and cry about this, your life will be over baccha.' (He said) ‘I didn’t do’, I told him, ‘You did it, acknowledge it.' (He said) 'I’m sorry.' 'Do you know your life would be over.' (He said) 'I promise it will never happen.' 'No, if it does, I’ve seen your face, now get out of here.'” Sushmita further said, "That’s the difference, I recognized in a 15-year-old boy that he’s not been taught that this kind of (behaviour) is not entertainment. It’s very big mistake. It can cost you the rest of your life.” The actress was very clear on what kind of punishment should be given to sexual predators who abuse little girls and women. “But, grown men who are in our country indulging in worse and gangrapes, they should be hanged without a doubt. There should be no understanding of mercy for it, start hanging them and you’ll understand what are the consequences, whether you are in a city or a village. This I strongly believe. And then we’ll think of mercy in a better place to live," she added. On the work front, Sushmita Sen's last Hindi film was No Problem in 2010, co-starring Anil Kapoor, Akshaye Khanna and Kangana Ranaut. She, however, did a Bengali film, Nirbaak, in 2014.

  • Here's why Baahubali actor Rana Daggubati is scouting for writers
    Tue, 22 May 18, 07:15:49

    Here's why Baahubali actor Rana Daggubati is scouting for writers Taking on new roles behind the camera to push the creation of quality cinema, Rana Daggubati had previously joined hands with an independent talent management agency, which could appoint creative talents for regional film industries in South India. Rana and his talent management company will help turn attention to writers in an industry obsessed with superstars. On his to-do list is the sourcing of writers who can weave authentic stories for the big screen. “The [film] industry has always been star driven [here, obsessed]. For a long time, literature [writing] was not getting its due credit. We are trying to set up a literature team that will help us scout for people who have studied the art. We will train them,” the actor says. On the syllabus will be instructions on writing a film, or scripting for television, Daggubati said. “I know it is an exercise that will take a while to complete, but, we hope, six months from now, we will have a large team that focuses on churning out new stories.” Even a year after the last installment hit screens, Baahubali continues to impact the life of the actor, who admits the film changed the way India perceived him. “The fantasy helped the industry move away from a star system. The country did not know us [Baahubali cast]. But the movie was a spectacle, which the entire nation came together to watch. The size of regional industries is small, but films like these bring them to the nation’s attention. That is the kind of cinema we are looking to build.” “Our country is known for being the land that has been home to great stories. We need to find the best way to present them,” concluded the star. Rana Daggubati, who is popularly known as Bhallala Deva in Bahubali franchise, was last seen in Welcome To New York. He will next be seen in the multi-lingual film Haathi Mere Saathi.

    Tue, 22 May 18, 06:41:34

    REVEALED: Emraan Hashmi and Sobhita Dhulipala starrer to be shot in Mauritius Many of the projects announced by Emraan Hashmi may not seem on track. But this film, which is directed by Drishyam fame Jeetu Joseph, seems to be quite on track. After we announced last time that two-film old Sobhita Dhulipala will play the lead in this suspense thriller, which is a remake of the Spanish film The Body [2012]. And now we have caught hold of some more information on the film. Sobhita Dhulipala has revealed in media reports that she will be soon kick-starting the film. After a four day shoot in Mumbai, the film will be further shot in Mauritius next week. Speaking on the film, Dhulipala mentioned that the shoot will be indoors and outdoors but her portions majorly revolve around shooting indoors. On the other hand, she also spoke about working with Emraan Hashmi for the first time. While she mentioned that she hasn’t met the Jannat star, she also maintained that he comes across like a sincere actor through his work. Besides Hashmi, this is also Jeetu Joseph’s Bollywood debut. But the actress is unfazed by it and rather considers this South talent crossover as a great opportunity. Sobhita said in these reports that she is quite glad to have someone like Jeetu as a director since he is the one who originally directed the Mohanlal starrer Drishyam in Malayalam. She described him as a filmmaker who knows how to keep audiences hooked to a story. Elaborating on the plot of the film, Sobhita added that The Body [original] is not about fear but about mind games and word play that forms an integral part of the plotline. In fact, that portion is what keeps the audiences intrigued until the end. Calling herself a geek off-screen, Sobhita stated that it is enriching to work with people coming from different cultures. The film also stars Rishi Kapoor in an integral role and it will be shot from a start-to-end schedule, starting this month onwards. Besides that, Sobhita Dhulipala is also working with Aanand L. Rai but not for a Hindi film! It is for a Hindi-Malayalam bilingual Moothon with the Hindi dialogues written by Anurag Kashyap.

    Tue, 22 May 18, 06:22:39

    Preity Zinta accepts she was happy that Mumbai Indians lost, but here is her explanation Preity Zinta’s viral video from an IPL match is making a lot of headlines because the actress openly dissed Mumbai Indians in the video and claimed that she was happy that the team lost. She was majorly trolled for this but the actress posted a clarification online where in she accepted that she was happy that MI lost because that gave her team Kings XI Punjab a chance for play offs. In a post on Twitter she wrote, “Relax ! Only if Mumbai was “Knocked Out” Punjab would have had a chance of getting to the play offs but RR was happier we were Knocked out by CSK cuz they got to go to the playoffs !  When you leave it till the end one has to not just see your wins but other teams losses as well.” She further added, “Yes cuz that meant we have a Chance at the play offs ! Don’t know why people are saying Finals ! That’s so silly & I dont mind Mumbai or another IPL team except when they are playing or completing against us ! It’s natural in sport specially during the knockout out stages.” We all know that as a co-owner of the Punjab team, Preity really is very passionate about IPL and makes sure that she is present at every match to boost the spirit of her team. On the personal front, Priety is blissfully married to Gene Goodenough who flies in and out of India to be with his wifey. Most the times, the actress flies to LA to be with her hubby. On work front, she had made a cameo with Saif Ali Khan in Happy Endings which was four years ago. We really miss her on screen and hope she decides to return to the big screen soon.

It is reliably learnt that the entire comeback plan for Dharmendra’s younger son Bobby Deol was planned plotted an executed by Salman Khan. A source very close to Dharmendra’s family says, “Race 3 is Salman’s own production along with Tips Industries. Everything in Race 3 is decided by Salman including the two leading ladies Jacqueline Fernandez and Daisy Shah. When the role of the second lead actor in Race 3 was being considered, it was Salman who suggested Bobby Deol’s name. Not only did Salman recommend Bobby, he made sure he was signed and then began Salman’s motivational attempts to get Bobby’s career and physique out of its flabby phase.” The source says the lazy Bobby Deol hit the gym and got back into shape solely because of Salman. “What Dharmendra and his elder son Sunny couldn’t get Bobby to do, Salman has succeeded in making him do. If Bobby is back in shape it’s all because of Salman. Dharamji can’t stop being grateful,” says the source. Says Dharmendra, “I’ve always seen many of my traits in Salman. He is like a younger version of me. Salman has been very close to me and my family. Now when Bobby is working with him I feel very happy.

    Jim Sarbh reacts on his 'rape joke' video that went viral after backlash Actor Jim Sarbh, who rose to fame with his stint in Sonam Kapoor's Neerja, has found himself amidst a controversy. A video surfaced online of him making a "rape joke" which went viral instantly. The short clip also featured Kangana Ranaut which was shot during Cannes Film Festival 2018. In the video that surfaced, Jim could  be heard saying, “I’d rather be raped by 12 prostitutes than touch alcohol and the Punjabi says ‘Me too, I didn’t know that was an option’”. Kangana was seen laughing at the joke. While the netizens weren't amused about it, they criticized his insensitivity about a serious issue like rape. Now, Jim Sarbh finally reacted to the video and has clarified on the matter. In a statement, he has clarified that it was unfortunate that his comments were taken out of context. He has never condoned any kind of sexual violence. He further went on to reveal that the video was taken out of context and that he was actually enacting parts of a dark satire play. Jim further explained that the play is about a priest who makes a casual statement completely out of proportion which condemning prostitutes and rape all simultaneously. He said that he did not find it to be about a desire to rape, or to inflict sexual violence upon another, but a subversive and comedic response to an extremely volatile sentence. Kangana Ranaut is yet to comment on the controversial video. In 2016, Salman Khan had made a statement about rape during Sultan promotions when Kangana had criticized him. She said in a press conference, "We all agree that it's a horrible thing to say, something that is extremely insensitive ... But let's not encourage that mentality where we want to point fingers at each other and want to feel greater by running people down by trolling them... So, like what Salim uncle says is right, that we are all sorry about it. It's not about an individual. We all collectively feel sorry for that thought process." It was due to this netizens were extremely pissed that this time Kangana found Jim Sarbh's words funny.
