Terence Lewis turns actor for Palaash Muchhal's music video

New Delhi, Sep 18 (IANS) Ace choreographer Terence Lewis got a chance to show his acting skills in a video for a new song conceptualised by composer Palaash Muchhal.

Talking about the new song, “Tu hai toh”, Palaash told IANS: “It has a beautiful melody and has been sung by Ash King and Palak Muchhal. She has also written it.”

“I personally wanted Terence Sir as an actor, and not as a dancer or choreographer. When I told him about the project, he was excited and what a gem of a person he is. Then we got Digangana Suryavanshi on board as we wanted someone who looks innocent and beautiful,” he added.

The video was shot in Madh Island, Maharashtra, last week.

“The experience was amazing. It’s just a feel-good factor to be back on sets. As for safety measures, we were well-planned and we took all the precautionary measures — like we did temperature checks, used PPE kits and sanitisers. The song was shot with a skeleton crew,” said Palaash.

SSR tribute song talks of justice for late actor

By Ahana Bhattacharya

Mumbai, Sep 18 (IANS) A song dedicated to Sushant Singh Rajput collages video clips featuring the late actor, to let fans re-live memories of their favourite star.

Titled “Mujhe insaaf de do”, the song is composed and sung by Mayank Pant and penned by Lali Mishra.

Talking about the inspiration behind the song, producer Kumar Raj told IANS: “For an entire month after Sushant’s death, we had so many questions in our minds that no one could answer. His wellwishers, friends, and people who knew him were putting out their memories about him, and how they could not accept that he would take such a step.”

He continued: “Things began to get clearer when his family came forward and filed an FIR. There was no turning back from there and everyone had only one motto in their mind — we want justice for Sushant and want to know the truth. This gave me the inspiration to support this movement.”

How did he think of featuring Sushant in the tribute video for the actor? “Once the song was ready, it was very difficult for us to decide on the screenplay and what to add, as we did not want to show anyone in wrong light because the investigation was still on. We finally decided to keep the video around Sushant and show his journey, as he had such a beautiful and accomplished career, which we all should remember him by,” the producer said.

Since the song talks about ‘insaaf’ or justice, does he suspect foul play in the actor’s death? The producer replied: “It is very difficult to say if it was a murder or suicide, but I can say one thing — the fact will not be hidden for long. The CBI will surely reach to the bottom of this, the truth will be out soon and the guilty will be punished.”

Kriti Sanon dated Sushant Singh Rajput, claims Lizaa Malik

New Delhi, Sep 18 (IANS) Actress Lizaa Malik has claimed that late actor Sushant Singh Rajput and actress Kriti Sanon might have denied dating each other, but they were very much in a relationship and looked happy together.

Lizaa had a professional relationship with Sushant, and she says she saw him happy in his relationship with Kriti at a birthday party.

“The last time I met Sushant was some two and a half years back when he was with Kriti. It was during Kriti’s birthday celebrations in a Bandra club. He was always a very charming, full-of-life guy, who would walk into a party and get a smile on people’s face. We had a lot of common friends, like Mahesh Shetty,” Lizaa told IANS.

“He was a fun loving guy, who had his sense of humour in the right place, always joking and keeping the energy level up,” she added.

Asked why she felt that Sushant and Kriti seemed like a couple, Lizaa replied: “When it is a public gathering and a birthday party, the host is always busy. So, Kriti was busy attending guests as it was a big party. I saw Sushant all charged up, dancing, getting a drink at the bar and socialising. They looked pretty happy and they were trying to be good hosts. Even if you’re not going out loud, telling the world that ‘oh, we are dating’, one can see the spark.”

The actress continued: “If somebody was playing the host with the actual host, there has to be something. We all knew that they were seeing each other, as much as they kept denying it.”

Kriti and Sushant never confirmed or denied the news of their relationship. The two actors co-starred in the 2017 film “Raabta”.

Sushant was found dead in Mumbai on June 14 this year. He was 34. His death is being investigated by the CBI, NCB and the ED.

Mumbai, Sep 18 (IANS) Filmmaker Sudhir Mishra says his upcoming film, Serious Men, is a story about a father who wants to create a bright future for his son.

Christina Aguilera didn’t find lip-lock with Madonna ‘shocking’

Singer Christina Aguilera has opened up about her much-discussed kiss with singer Madonna at a 2003 music awards ceremony.

During a recent interview with host Zane Lowe, Aguilera spoke about the lip-lock, reports people.com.

“Shock value gets more and more extreme or whatever. But honestly, at the time, yeah, I never thought anything of it,” she said.

“It was like, ‘Okay, it’s two girls kissing’. It wasn’t shocking back then. It’s not shocking now, to me. But it’s so many things,” she added.

During the interview, Aguilera also spoke about how Madonna has influenced her career.

“Madonna, first of all, the queen of reinventing herself, was a huge inspiration,” she shared.

“When I was little, I was not allowed to listen to her or watch her videos or anything. It was just like a no-no, but then whenever you grow up, and I discovered her catalog and her videos and the fact that she had such a message,” she said.

Aguilera said Madonna’s “Truth or Dare” documentary, which gave the world a closer look at the iconic singer’s 1990 ‘Blond Ambition World Tour’, made her realize that “you don’t have to just, quote unquote, sing a song. You literally can just say so much more and go so much deeper”.

“Truly, the way you see her image changed through the albums. I mean, that was a big inspiration for me to want to change it up, to want to keep pushing, to grow, to reinvent myself, to discover more things about me and myself as an artist,” Aguilera added. –IANS/nn/vnc

NCB nabs 6 more Mumbai drug peddlers, seizes 1.4 kg narcotics

Continuing its crackdown on the drugs trade in Mumbai as part of the probe into the narcotics angle in Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s death, the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) has arrested six more drug peddlers, an official said here on Friday.

Carrying out raids in posh areas of Mumbai’s Powai and Andheri suburbs, besides Thane, the NCB has also recovered a total quantity of 1.433 kg of drugs like charas and ganja.

Following a statement by drug supplier Ankush Arneja, who was arrested last Sunday, the NCB raided the home of Rahil Rafat Vishra alias Sam, 42, who had supplied charas to Arneja.

“We have recovered 928 grams charas and Rs 436,000 cash from Vishra’s home late on Thursday,” said a NCB official.

Again based on Arneja’s information of another drug peddler – Rohan Talwar, 29, the NCB raided his home and recovered 10 grams ganja.

Talwar’s interrogation led the NCB to Nogthoung Lotha, 30, from whom another 370 grams of ganja was found, said the NCB.

Lotha, in turn, revealed the name of his associate Vishal Salve, 25, who was also caught by the NCB and 50 grams ganja seized from him.

The NCB sleuths zeroed in on two other peddlers – Abbas Ali, 42 in Andheri and recovered 15 grams ganja from him, and Jaychetan Raichera, 29, from Thane and seized 60 grams ganja.

Of these six arrested, Vishram is allegedly connected to the probe into the drugs angle of the Sushant case, while Ali was released on bail on Friday, said the NCB.

Further investigations are in progress as the NCB attempts to unravel the alleged nexus of Bollywood with the drugs mafia and its possible links with Sushant’s death.

In its series of raids last weekend, the NCB had arrested six drug peddlers or suppliers, plus one from Goa and more raids are likely over the next few days. –IANS/qn/vd

“Wanted” featured Vinod Khanna, Prakash Raj, Mahesh Manjrekar, and Ayesha Takia in pivotal roles along with Salman. The film’s dialogue “Ek baar jo maine commitment kar di, toh main apne aap ki bhi nahi sunta” continues to be a rage with Salman fans till date.

Recalling the film’s success, producer Boney Kapoor tweeted: “#Wanted marked the revival of single screen cinemas. The crowds were back and so was the old forgotten HOUSEFULL board. #11YearsofWanted #Trivia #MagicofCinema.”

Harry Styles is reportedly in negotiations to star alongside Lily James in Amazon’s adaptation of the acclaimed novel, ‘My Policeman.’

The film which is an adaptation of Bethan Roberts’ LGBTQ+ novel ‘My Policeman’ has been acquired by Amazon Studios and will be directed by Michael Grandage.

Set in Brighton in the late 1950s, ‘My Policeman’ focuses on a gay police officer Tom Burgess who, due to social expectations during the era, chooses to marry his schoolteacher Marion, despite his love of another man. His wife gets jealous of her husband’s other lover, Patrick, a museum curator. As a result, she gets his lover arrested for indecency.

Production for ‘My Policeman’ adaptation is expected to begin in summer 2021. The film is as of yet untitled.

Although their involvement in ‘My Policeman’ adaptation is yet to be officially confirmed, it is assumed that Lily James will be playing the female lead Marion, while Harry Styles will play a policeman called Tom, the love interest of James’ character.

James next features in Netflix’s much-anticipated adaptation of Daphne Du Maurier’s Rebecca, opposite Armie Hammer and Kristin Scott Thomas. She’ll also be appearing in the Amazon drama series The Pursuit of Love.

Meanwhile, Harry Styles will be appearing in Olivia Wilde‘s thriller ‘Don’t Worry Darling’ in which he replaced Shia LaBeouf and will star alongside Chris Pine, Florence Pugh, Dakota Johnson, and Oscar-winner Olivia Colman.

Styles last appeared in Christopher Nolan’s war drama Dunkirk. He dropped his latest album, the chart-topping Fine Line, in December last year.

Wanted released 11 years ago.Salman Khan and Ayesha Takia in leading roles and were supported by Vinod Khanna, Mahesh Manjrekar, Prakash Raj, Manoj Pahwa, Mehek Chahal, Inder Kumar and Aseem Merchant. 

It was the official remake of the Telugu flick Pokiri (2006). Prabhudheva first made its remake in Tamil and then also helmed the Hindi version. The film was about a cop who goes undercover as a ruthless gangster and finishes off two notorious gangs and their masters in Mumbai.

Salman Khan played the role of a charming undercover officer under the disguise of a crook. He was named Radhe, and it can only be ironic that the film that revived his career back in 2003 as well also had him play a man called Radhe (Tere Naam).

After the success of this actioner, Khan found his way to the top, with EID being his lucky festival. The bandwagon continued with Dabangg, Bodyguard, Ek Tha Tiger, and so on. 

Boney Kapoor celebrates 11 years of Wanted and tweeted, “Ek baar jo maine commitment kar li toh Phir.. has been reverberating for 11 years. Thank you to all #Wanted lovers & to @BeingSalmanKhan @Ayeshatakia @prakashraaj

Actress Nia Sharma posted a new video on Friday, seemingly as a reply to the widespread trolling she faced after posting videos of her birthday celebration the day before, where she is seeing cutting a cake shaped like a male member.

In the new video, Nia is seen grooving by the pool with her back towards the camera.

“Whacky weird or whatever. Keep Calm and Move on. har din Birthday nahi aataaaaa (every day is not a birthday),” she captioned the video.

The Special Investigation Team (SIT) of the nation’s premier investigating agency, the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), on Friday met senior officials and apprised them of the findings into the mysterious death of actor Sushant Singh Rajput.

The team, which returned from Mumbai almost a month after recording the statements of several people and recreating the crime scene met the senior officials of the agency and briefed them about their investigation.

According to agency sources, CBI Superintendent of Police (SP) Nupur Prasad and Deputy SP Anil Yadav met the senior officials at the agency headquarters and apprised them about the development in the case so far.

The CBI had registered a case on August 6 on the orders of the Central government following the recommendation from the Bihar government on the complaint of Sushant’s father K. K. Singh.

The CBI team before going to Mumbai recorded the statement of Sushant’s elder sister Rani Singh and father.

A team of the CBI’s SIT led by Prasad had gone to Mumbai along with the members of the Central Forensic Science Laboratory (CFSL) on August 20, a day after the Supreme Court gave its nod for a federal agency probe into the death of Sushant.

The CBI team was exempted from the mandatory quarantine of 14 days by the BMC. The CBI team stayed at the DRDO guest house, which also acted as its makeshift office. The team collected the documents relating to the investigation by the Mumbai Police and the statements it recorded in the matter.

The CBI team also visited the flat of Sushant, where he was found dead on June 14 along with the CFSL team and recreated the crime scene. The CBI team also met the doctors of the Cooper Hospital, who performed the post-mortem of Sushant and collected the reports. The team had also visited the Waterstone resort, where Sushant stayed for a few months.

During its stay in Mumbai, the CBI team was also joined by the team of All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), which also visited the Mont Blanc Apartment where Sushant was found dead. The entire crime scene was recreated in the presence of the late actor’s sister Mitu Singh and flatmate Siddharth Pithani, personal staff Neeraj Singh, Keshav Bachne and Dipesh Sawant.

The AIIMS forensic team will be sharing its findings with the CBI team on September 20. The CBI team during its stay in Mumbai also recorded the statement of Sushant’s girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty, her brother Showik, father Indrajit, Sushant’s house manager Samuel Miranda, Pithani, former manager Shruti Modi, talent manager Jaya Saha and several others.

To know the real cause of the death of Sushant, the CBI team has questioned Rhea, Showik, Pithani and his personal staff multiple times to know what happened between June 8 to 14. Besides the CBI, the Enforcement Directorate and the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) are also probing the money laundering angle and the drug angle in the case. The NCB has arrested Rhea, Showik, Miranda, Sawant and several others in connection with the case. –IANS/aks/dpb/ash/in

Singer Sona Mohapatra has slammed actress Kangana Ranaut, saying that playing the messiah by using a tragic death is the worst act of opportunism.

The singer took to Twitter to share her viewpoint on Kangana, who has been in the news over the past weeks for her controversial comments about Bollywood’s alleged drug culture as well as her abrasive attacks on celebrities including Jaya Bachchan and Urmila Matondkar who countered her opinion. Kangana also hit the headlines earlier with her statements related to the death of actor Sushant Singh Rajput.

“The number of misogynistic slurs spilling from her mouth now makes me wonder about the ‘feminist scholars’ who had hated on me in 2017 when I’d called out Kangana. My choice of words I’m not too proud of but nevertheless had smelt the problem a mile away,” Sona tweeted, while sharing a link to an article from 2017 which called out Sona for attacking Kangana.

“Calling others Gold digger, mafia bimbo, Sasti copy, Soft porn star?!? Playing the messiah of the masses by using a tragic death is the worst act of opportunism. Doesn’t make you the pillar of virtue, justice or the flag bearer of “Hindu Cultural values”. Highlights the worst side,” she added.

Over the last two day, Kangana has received a lot of flak from netizens and celebrities for calling Urmila a “soft porn star”, and disrespecting veteran actress Jaya Bachchan. –IANS/sug/vnc

Song Name – Holy
Singer – Justin Bieber
Featuring – Chance The Rapper, Ryan Destiny, Wilmer Valderrama

Check out the song lyrics of Holy by Justin Bieber ft. Chance The Rapper

I hear a lot about sinners
Don’t think that I’ll be a saint
But I might go down to the river
‘Cause the way that the sky opens up when we touch
Yeah, it’s making me say

That the way you hold me, hold me, hold me, hold me, hold me
Feels so holy, holy, holy, holy, holy
On God
Runnin’ to the altar like a track star
Can’t wait another second
‘Cause the way you hold me, hold me, hold me, hold me, hold me feels so holy

I don’t do well with the drama
And no I can’t stand it being fake (No, no, no, no, no, no no no)
I don’t believe in nirvana
But the way that we love in the night gave me life
Baby I can’t explain

That the way you hold me, hold me, hold me, hold me, hold me
Feels so holy, holy, holy, holy, holy
On God
Runnin’ to the altar like a track star
Can’t wait another second
‘Cause the way you hold me, hold me, hold me, hold me, hold me feels so holy

They say we’re too young and
The pimps and the players say, “Don’t go crushing”
Wise men say fools rush in
But I don’t know
They say we’re too young and
The pimps and the players say, “Don’t go crushing”
Wise men say fools rush in
But I don’t know (Chance, the Rapper)

The first step pleases the Father
Might be the hardest to take
But when you come out of the water
I’m a believer
My heart is fleshy
Life is short with a temper like Joe Pesci
They always come and sing your praises

Your name is catchy
But they don’t see you how I see you
Parlay and Desi
Cross, Tween, Tween, Hesi hit the jet speed
When they get messy
Go lefty, like Lionel Messi
Let’s take a trip and get the Vespas
Or rent a jetski
I know the spots that got the best weed

We goin’ next week
I wanna, I wanna honor you
Bridegroom, I’m my Father’s child
I know when the son takes the first steps, the Father’s proud
If you make it to the water He’ll part the clouds
I know He made you a snack like Oscar Proud
Suffer it to be so now
Gotta clean it up
Formalize the union in communion He can trust
I know I ain’t leaving you like I know He ain’t leaving us
I know we believe in God and I know God believe in us

‘Cause the way you hold me, hold me, hold me, hold me, hold me
Feels so holy, holy, holy, holy, holy
On God
Runnin’ to the altar like a track star
Can’t wait another second
On God

Runnin’ to the altar like a track star
Can’t wait another second
On God
Runnin’ to the altar like a track star
Can’t wait another second
‘Cause the way you hold me, hold me, hold me, hold me feels so holy

Rupam Kaur: Traditional matchmaking fraught with prejudice

By Siddhi Jain

New Delhi, Sep 18 (IANSlife) For Rupam Kaur, an Indian-American physician, the pursuit of finding love a second time took more than the traditional formula of meeting with suitors via a matchmaker. Having found her partner on the dating app Bumble after a divorce, Kaur says that the “traditional concept of arranged matchmaking holds a lot of prejudiced and preconceived notions”.

Kaur, who incidentally has featured on the popular Netflix show ‘Indian Matchmaking’, believes that sometimes one needs to “self-arrange” a match, taking both control of your own destiny and finding someone on your own terms.

In an interview with IANSlife, Kaur also shared that traditional matchmakers were limiting potential options for her, due to the relatively smaller database they bring to the table. Her story in itself is a testimony to Indian communities slowly seeing the new horizon of online dating, with apps playing matchmaker. According to Priti Joshi, the Vice President for Strategy for Bumble, a platform that enables women users to make the first move on the app, Rupam’s first move changed the course of her life. “We were so happy to see how much Rupam’s story has resonated with Indian women around the world, and our team is overjoyed that Rupam found love on Bumble,” Joshi told IANSlife.

Excerpts from an IANSlife interview with Rupam Kaur:

As an Indian-American, the concept of marriage, specifically traditional matchmaking, must have been part of your childhood? Did it impact your worldview about marriage at all?

Kaur: As an Indian child albeit Indian-American, marriage was always stressed as a life goal and given utmost importance. We weren’t allowed to talk to boys and definitely not date! Yet somehow we were supposed to be married by a certain age. I bought into this belief when I was younger and got married at a relatively young age for American standards, but after going through a divorce and becoming a single mother, I realised that matchmakers with traditional beliefs were limiting my options of finding a partner. I decided to shed these beliefs. I had hope that there was someone for me who was progressive minded and wouldn’t judge my past life. I just had to navigate myself through it. For me, downloading and using Bumble was a great decision, it gave me a chance to take control of my destiny and find someone on my own terms.

Do you think Indian communities, through the process of arranged matchmaking leave out a lot of people – women with children, divorced people, people marrying in their 30s or 40s?

Kaur: Yes, unfortunately I’ve learned this is the case as the traditional concept of arranged matchmaking holds a lot of prejudiced and preconceived notions. For instance, in my case, when I was finally ready to start over again, I was constantly told by matchmakers that I had to ‘compromise’ and settle in with the options I was provided with. The reason was simple, as a single mother, I would only have a chance at “being settled” if I checked all the ‘socially acceptable’ boxes. I am sure, there are many women out there who are not even provided with that one chance to take control of their own lives. I consider myself very lucky to be surrounded by supportive family and friends who have respected my decision of finding love in a non-traditional way.

What attitudes do you see across the Indian diaspora/communities about dating apps? Are they warming up to dating and dating apps?

Kaur: Indian communities, especially the younger generations- Gen Z and Millennials – are more open to the concept of dating apps and finding love in a non-traditional way, although the pressures to marry remain. Currently, with the global pandemic, virtual dating too has gained momentum as individuals are looking to build meaningful relationships while staying indoors.

I found Nitin, my fiance using Bumble filters like Education and Religion as I was looking for a meaningful long-term relationship and was keen to find a like-minded partner. This narrowed down my search and directed me to the profiles with similar interests. Just like me, people have warmed up to finding love and long-standing relationships on dating apps. While the option of arranged marriage is something that is preferred by the families, healthy conversations around dating apps is slowly and steadily changing this opinion. I also believe dating apps allow you to “self-arrange” relationships. We can take our family values and incorporate them into finding a like-minded partner using a larger database than matchmakers have.

In desi settings, women are often never given the sort of autonomy or authority to take control of their love lives and find suitors. Is it about time things changed?

Kaur: Yes! Desi women have taken authority in their lives in so many realms whether at school, workplace, or home. We should give up the expectation that it is only on the woman to compromise or adjust with what they have, whether in life or relationships. I strongly believe that the foundation of a meaningful relationship lies in kindness, respect, and equality. Therefore, I decided to do it my way – ignored the naysayers, and the aunties from Denver to Delhi, downloaded Bumble on my phone, took charge of my dating journey and created my own love story. If I could do it, anyone can.

What was your family’s reaction to you finding a match on Bumble?

Kaur: I was introduced to Bumble by a friend two years ago when I was ready to give myself a chance to fall in love again. It took me quite some time and many first dates to find the right one, but this never demotivated me as I didn’t lose hope. When my family got to know that I found my “forever” on Bumble – my mom exclaimed, “divine happenings do happen on Bumble!” I think she’s right! My daughter’s reaction was pure excitement when she got to know about the proposal, and she started screaming, “Yes! Yes! Yes!” They and I couldn’t have been happier!

About your wedding and all that we didn’t see on screen..

Kaur: There was a lot which went on off-screen! I was travelling to New York when I matched with Nitin. My first date with my fiance was an amazing 24-hour date – we spent the whole day together starting with brunch and hiking and finishing up with dinner at a steakhouse. It was one of the best dates I’ve ever had. As I was dating him, it was always important to me that my partner respected my past, accepted me as a mother and shared the same life values as me. He is the most caring, loving, and kindest person I’ve met, and I knew I wanted to spend my life with him. We got engaged during the pandemic and were married in a small, socially-distanced ceremony with a tight group of family and friends. They say love will find a way – and trust me it does. Falling in love is such a wonderful feeling and there is no reason for it to turn into a contest.

Mumbai Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) recovers 1.418 kg narcotics

Continuing its operation against the drugs trade in Mumbai, Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) has detained four drug peddlers as part of its investigations into the drugs angle in the death of Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput, an official said here on Friday.

Carrying out raids in Mumbai’s Powai and Andheri suburbs, besides Thane, the NCB has recovered a total quantity of 1.418 kg of contrabands like Charas and Ganja.

Following a statement by one drug supplier, Ankush Arneja, who was arrested on September 13, the NCB raided the home of one Rahil Rafat Vishra alias Sam, who supplied Charas to him (Arneja).

“We have recovered 928 gm Charas and Rs 4,36,000 cash from Vishra’s home late on Thursday,” said a NCB official.

Again based on Arneja’s statement of another drug peddler Rohan Talwar, the NCB raised the latter’s home to recover 10 gm Ganja.

Talwar’s interrogation led the NCB to another person named Nogthoung from whom 370 gm Ganja was found, said the NCB.

Nogthoung revealed the name of his associate Vishal Salve who was also caught and the NCB recovered 110 gm Ganja from him.

All have been detained and further investigations are in progress as the NCB attempts to unravel the alleged nexus of Bollywood with the drugs mafia and its possible links with Sushant’s death.

In its actions last weekend, the NCB had arrested six drug peddlers or suppliers, plus one from Goa as more raids are likely over the next few days. –IANS/qn/in

Serious Men Trailer: Nawazuddin Siddiqui sets up a tale of aspiration and a father-son bond in a Netflix film

Serious Men Trailer Nawazuddin Siddiqui sets up a tale of aspiration and a father-son bond in a netflix film

Ayyan Mani has many dreams, but his vision is the 4G model, i.e. the four generation model that he explains in the trailer of the Netflix Film, Serious Men, where the fourth generation of an under-privileged family is able to join the world of the eponymous serious men. 

Directed by National Award winner Sudhir Mishra, and starring Nawazuddin Siddiqui as Ayyan Mani, the film is based on the novel by the same name, written by author Manu Joseph. The script has been brought to life by writer-producer Bhavesh Mandalia (Oh My God! and Angrezi Medium) and filming occurred in Mumbai. 

Talking about Serious Men on Netflix Sudhir Mishra said, “The great thing about Manu Joseph’s novel is that it is funny and wacky, yet deeply emotional. The film charts its own graph for the transformation of the story to another medium, but it still remains an endearing story of a father’s desire to create a bright future for his son.

It is a delight to bring this tale to the world along with a creative partner in Netflix. The film may be specific in its articulation, but it is very universal at the same time.”

The film stars Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Aakshath Das, Shweta Basu Prasad, Nasser and introducing Indira Tiwari

‘Serious Men’ premieres on October 2, exclusively on Netflix!

Kevin Pietersen: I love IPL, India has given me a lot

Ahead of the upcoming Indian Premier League (IPL), former England captain Kevin Pietersen opened up on how the Twenty-20 cricket extravaganza will be different this year due the ongoing Covid pandemic.

“It’s going to be different for sure. No fans, nothing. Everybody is in bubble and the team that copes with its bubble life the best is the team that’s going to win. This is a new territory for everyone,” Pietersen told IANS.

KP, as he is fondly known in the cricketing circuit, is currently a part of the commentary panel for IPL 2020, which is set to start on September 19 in the UAE.

During his playing days, Pietersen represented the Delhi Daredevils team (now rechristened Delhi Capitals) in the IPL, besides Royal Challengers Bangalore and Rising Pune Supergiant. He roots for Delhi team to lift the trophy this time.

“I can’t predict anything as of now, but my heart really wants Delhi Capitals to win because I love the team. However, I can’t predict right now. It’s totally a new and different season for everybody. So, I have to closely observe the teams for the first two weeks, and only then will I be able to put my professional brain on,” Pietersen said, adding: “I love young players. I love exciting players. I love all sorts of players. I love players who take risks.”

Recalling his IPL journey, he expressed his gratitude to India.

“I love the IPL. I love what India has given to me. I love everything about the journey that I have had since 2002 — the first time I came to India. I am so lucky that I got to experience Indian culture, friendships. I have been benefited financially, I have been benefited emotionally in India. I owe a lot to India,” he said, while promoting the National Geographic’s documentary, “Save This Rhino”, which he called his “greatest gift to India”.

Aryans’ Sadu: I’ve never appreciated playback singing or film songs

Singer Sadu, one of the founding members of the popular pop and rock band Aryans, is not a fan of actors lip-syncing to songs on screen.

“I have never appreciated playback singing or songs in films. How can you lip-sync to a song? It makes a person look foolish, especially today. That’s a large part of the reason for the pathetic state of both music and films in India. We really need music to be independent like in the West. They don’t need songs to sell their movies and their movies are still fantastic,” Sadu told IANS.

The singer-composer has launched his new ghazal-pop single titled “Ankh se door na ho”.

It’s a 2020 take on the famous ghazal penned by poet Ahmad Faraz.

“During this lockdown, I tried singing my favourites ghazals by artistes like Mehdi Hassan, Ghulam Ali and Jagjit Singh, and uploaded them on social media to boost people’s morale. My renditions received a massive positive response from all over the globe, and that tempted me to go in for a proper ghazal release of my own,” he said.

“l loved the poetry of Ahmad Faraz, hence there couldn’t have been a better choice to start with other than ‘Ankh se door’. The new generation is deprived of the fantasy of ghazals, hence I thought of bringing the mystic ambience back to the South Asian audience with the latest sound so they can relate to it easily,” he added.

The single is accompanied by a video that was shot between Bhopal and Mumbai.

“On a positive note, the lockdown has been a blessing in disguise, as there are lots of creative aspects in me like writing stories, philosophical thoughts, composing new songs and practicing and working on my vocal exercises, which I can polish for betterment,” said Sadu.

He added: “Also, there were around 10 songs in the preliminary stage, 20 songs in the second stage and five songs in the final stage, with ample time around, so that was the right time to finish all of them,” said Sadu.

“Since almost everything can happen online today, I was in touch with my music producers, studio engineers and they all have their own home setups. Hence, I didn’t have any problem to develop the songs,” he recalled.

“The problem was in the video shoot, since it was not allowed by the government. I took special permission for the shoot and could finally do justice to the music video and we’ve shot the video between Bhopal, MP and Mumbai, Maharashtra,” Sadu said. –IANS/nn/vnc
