    "I was not in a good frame of mind,” says Suniel Shetty about his time away from the screen Suniel Shetty will be returning to the screen after a gap of four years with the Kannada film Pehlwaan alongside South star Kichcha Sudeep. On Thursday at the trailer launch of the film, the actor spoke about the fear that engulfed him during his sabbatical. Suniel Shetty who makes his debut in Kannada cinema said that he fears that his four years gap has him doubting his acting ability. “For four years I didn’t work. I was in a frame of mind where I didn’t know what to do. I was in a confused state whether I wanted to continue working or I didn’t want to work. But when something good comes to you, you also want to test the waters,” he said. The actor was not in a good frame of mind. He said, “You get this feeling of doubt, do you even remember to act? I was going through that stage.” However, it is the subject of the film Pehlwaan that helped him take up the project despite his fears. “It’s Kannada, not that I was very familiar with the language because I speak Thullu, but it’s also my turf, territory. It was a good subject and up my alley. I don’t think I even debated,” he said.   View this post on Instagram   Hey guys happy to showcase the first look of my first Kannada film #Pailwaan with the brilliant @kichchasudeepa directed by #SKrishna & an amazing crew! Thank you for making me feel at home ! Looking forward to working with you again! #newposter #film A post shared by Suniel Shetty (@suniel.shetty) on May 22, 2019 at 7:19am PDT He feels that he is safe with this film as this film has an ‘X’ amount of audience because of Sudeep and Krishna (the film’s director). “I am happy I did it. There’s cross-pollination. Actors are doing films across the board so, I am glad I took the decision,” he added. Suniel plays Sudeep’s mentor in the film and is more than happy to play his actual age. He said that Sudeep and Krishna have managed his character very well and it has come out very well.  The film will be released on September 12 in Kannada, Tamil, Hindi, Telugu, and Malayalam simultaneously.

    Harshvardhan Kapoor to work with sisters Sonam Kapoor and Rhea Kapoor Harshvardhan Kapoor, who made his debut in the commercially unsuccessful Mirzya and followed it up with a critically acclaimed but nonetheless box office failure Bhavesh Joshi, will now be seen in a home production. Rhea Kapoor, who is Harshvardhan’s sister will produce the large-screen version of  Anuja Chauhan’s bestselling novel The Battle for Bittora, the story of  advertising copywriter who ends up fighting a national parliamentary election. The film, which has been on the anvil for nearly four years, was to be originally made with Sonam Kapoor and Fawad Khan, the pair fresh off the shelf after the release of Khubsoorat in 2014. However, the project had to be put on hold when Fawad fled the country, while Rhea Kapoor and her sister collaborated on two other projects the successful Veere Di Wedding and the on-release The Zoya Factor (also based on an Anuja Chauhan novel). We now hear of The Battle For Bittora being revived with Sonam Kapoor in the lead. And yes, brother Harshvardhan will play a pivotal role in the quirky political satire to be directed by Shashanka Ghosh. That’s good news Harshvardhan who has been trying to find his bearings. All hopes were pinned for young Kapoor on the biopic on shooter Abhinav Bindra. But, that has now been delayed. Hence, the family film.

    "Such performers will do anything for money in any part of the world" - Ashoke Pandit blasts Mika Singh after his apology to FWICE Singer Mika Singh, whose career faced an imminent ban after he was caught performing at a wedding in Pakistan, faced the wrath of the Federation Of Western India Cine Employees (FWICE) before being made to apologize publicly at a press meet in Mumbai on Thursday afternoon. Ashoke Pandit, Chief Adviser of the FWICE, reveals, “Quite frankly, we are not convinced by Mika’s public display of repentance (for performing in Pakistan). They could be crocodile tears. Such performers will do anything for money in any part of the world. How do we know he won’t go back to Pakistan once all the uproar had died down?” Angrily Pandit says, “We summoned Mika Singh. He arrived with dozens of bullies to show his strength. We asked him to drop his act of bravado and face up to a lifelong ban. We also reminded him that we knew where the funds for these stage shows all over the world featuring Indian and Pakistani artistes are suspected to come from.” Says Pandit, “Could be. But we are not a legally sanctioned organization. We can only send out a strong signal in the film industry about what we feel to be the morally right stance in a situation like Mika’s. In that, we succeeded in a big way.” After the sound dressing-down Mika Singh apparently dropped his aggressive act and meekly agreed to comply with whatever the Federation decided. “We made it very clear to him that we were not convinced by his insincere apology. We insisted on a public media-covered apology so that his statement of regret would be on –record. We now dare Mika to cross the border again,” says Pandit angrily.

  • Exclusive: Amit Kumar to pen his father, legendary singer Kishore Kumar’s exciting biography, revealing aspects of his personal and professional life!
    Thu, 22 Aug 19, 04:40:44

    Exclusive: Amit Kumar to pen his father, legendary singer Kishore Kumar’s exciting biography, revealing aspects of his personal and professional life! Playback singer, actor, music director, lyricist, film story writer, film director, producer and screenwriter, Kishore Kumar Ganguly, was a multi-faceted personality, whose voice rules over hearts even today. Now, his son, versatile film playback singer, actor, entertainer, producer and director, Amit Kumar Ganguly, is all set to write his biography, revealing interesting and exciting information about his father, which hasn’t been revealed yet. Earlier there was talk of Anurag Basu directing Ranbir Kapoor in Kishore Kumar’s biopic but the project is apparently, on hold. Says a trade source, “Few knew the fabulous, scintillating personality that Kishore Kumar was. While some talked about him as being quirky with a sense of humour, apart from being a fabulous singer, he was an extremely intelligent, practical and kind-hearted man, who knew what he was saying and doing. His elder son, singer Amit Kumar, was one of the main judges in Sony Entertainment Television's reality music show K For Kishore (2008). Amit Kumar also launched his own music production company, named Kumar Brothers Music, released many music videos on YouTube and sung many Bollywood and regional film songs since the 1970s, and worked closely with his father on many of his movies, so who better than him to pen his father's biography? Amit Kumar plans to bring out some of those untold stories in his biography, including his marriages to some of the most beautiful actresses of India. Kishore Kumar was married to Ruma Guha Thakurta (Amit Kumar’s mother), Madhubala and Yogeeta Bali. Kishore Kumar was married to Leena Chandavarkar when he passed away leaving behind their young son Sumit Kumar. Buzz is, Sumit Kumar may also help in writing a few chapters in the book and music director-singer Bappi Lahiri who was very close to Kishore Kumar.” The source adds that everything will be done with lots of research and presented in an extremely sensitive way that will preserve and respect the emotions of all those mentioned. “There is no hurry to publish the biography and the research itself will take a few years. This will not be a scandalous, gossip-driven book at all, but one based on facts and meticulous research, and where Kishore Kumar’s friends and family may also be spoken to. Amit Kumar himself acted in many films directed by and starring his father, including Door Gagan Ki Chhaon Mein (1964), Door Ka Raahi (1971), Badhti Ka Naam Dadhi (1974), Shabhash Daddy (1979) and Chalti Ka Naam Zindagi (1982). Amit Kumar took over as director and completed the film, Mamta Ki Chhaon Mein, for release in 1989, after his father's death (1987). Kishore Kumar was a prolific personality so his creative side as a director may also be highlighted in the book.
