0

Chennai, June 27 (IANS) Director Balaaji’s upcoming thriller ‘D3’, which features actors Prajin and Vidya Pradeep in the lead, will be about a series of events that happen in just a day.

Giving out details of his film, Balaaji says, “I have created the story based on a real incident that I got to learn of and about which the public aren’t aware. This element will keep the screenplay racy from beginning till end.”

On the experience of shooting ‘D3’, the director says, “We have shot the movie despite serious challenges posed by nature. We started shooting the movie during the non-rainy season in Kuttralam. However, despite this, 70 per cent of our shooting days had a heavy downpour of rain. We had to complete filming, overcoming this challenge.”

“When we had finished 60 per cent of the shooting, Covid-19 hit the world and a 30-year-old actor, who had played a prominent role in the film, passed away due to Corona. Due to this, we had to reshoot his entire portion with another actor.

“Similarly, we had planned to shoot a few scenes in a famous hospital in Chennai. The cost of renting the place was Rs 2.5 lakh per day. On the morning of the shoot, we had made all arrangements when we got we the disappointing news that actor Varghese Mathew, who had landed at the Chennai airport from Hyderabad, had tested positive for Covid-19.

“We had no other option but to cancel the shoot. Such have been the challenges that we faced during the filming of D 3.”

Manoj of Bmass Entertainments and Samuel Godson of JKM Productions have jointly produced the film ‘D3’, the title look of which was revealed by filmmaker Venkat Prabhu recently.

While actor Charlie plays an important character, others in the cast include Varghese Mathew and ‘Mogamull’ Abhishek.

Jack Harlow wears Lil Nas X T-shirt to BET awards to protest snub

0

Rapper Lil Nas X has protested often and loudly about being excluded from the nominations for the BET Awards, and his friend and ‘Industry Baby’ collaborator Jack Harlow made his own silent statement on the show’s red carpet Sunday by rocking a Lil Nas T-shirt.

According to ‘Variety’, at the time of this article’s publication, it was not clear whether or not Harlow had commented on the carpet, but he has already been on the receiving end of substantial criticism for being a white rapper nominated for BET awards, so silent protest may have been the safest path.

Harlow’s label serviced the red-carpet photograph, noting that Harlow’s shoes and pants were by Givenchy but did not mention the Nas shirt.

Over the past few weeks, Nas has publicly denounced the BET Awards for their failure to nominate him at this year’s awards and moreover, for “the bigger problem of homophobia in the Black community,” as he wrote in a tweet earlier this month.

However, the network has repeatedly stressed that the awards are voted on by fans and the network plays no role.

On June 24, Nas released his latest single ‘Late to Da Party’, which includes a ‘F**k BET’ chorus line and an album cover which shows him (presumably it’s him) urinating on a BET Award in a toilet.

Nas and members of his team told Rolling Stone that before the singer’s BET performance last year – in which Nas made headlines kissing one of his male backup dancers – the network “was hesitant when booking Nas, asking for his team’s confirmation that he wasn’t a a satanist or devil worshiper”, the rapper claims.

They also reported that the performance, and the kiss specifically, left certain network producers upset.

“My relationship with BET has been painful and strained for quite some time. It didn’t start with this year’s nominations like most people might think,” Nas told Rolling Stone in a statement.

“They did let me perform on their show last year, but only after (I gave) assurances that I was not a satanist or devil worshiper, and that my performance would be appropriate for their audience.”

In response, a BET spokesperson said that the “summation of events around Lil Nas X’s 2021 BET Awards performance is simply untrue.”

“Since last year’s performance, we have been in touch to work on other projects,” the representative added.

“We are still excited about his previous performances and continue to wish him well. But today, we are focused on culture’s biggest night and delivering history-making moments for fans worldwide.”

Taraji P Henson: Guns have more rights than women

0

Actress Taraji P Henson at the BET Awards delivered the first of three consecutive slams at the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade last week. She began light, joking to the crowd: “You look successful… expensive… you look like you can afford these gas prices,” she laughed, after coming onstage to Ikino’s song, “The Kong’s Affirmation.”

After saying “Black men, we love you, we hear you,” she then shouted out show-opener Lizzo for her stellar performance of “About That Time” – and then for donating $1 million to Planned Parenthood.

“It’s about that time we step into our power… It’s about that time we talk about the fact that guns have more rights than a woman. It’s a sad day in America. A weapon that can take lives has more power than a woman who can gave life – IF she chooses to.”

The theme continued with the next presenter, as Janelle Monae wished the audience Happy Pride Day and shouted out the LGBTQ representation, reports ‘Variety’.

“I’d like to give a special, special shoutout to Black women, to Black queer artists, to Black nonbinary artists,” she said.

“These artists making art on our own terms, owning our truths and expressing ourselves freely and unapologetically in a world that tries to control and police our bodies, my body, and our decisions, my decision.”

She then exclaimed, “F**k you, Supreme Court,” holding up a prominent m****e f****r; the expletive was bleeped but her hand gesture was not blurred.

“I know we are celebrating us right now, as we should – we absolutely deserve to celebrate especially now. We must celebrate our art by protecting our right and our truths.”

She then introduced the nominees for Best R&B Pop Artist – and the winner, Jazmine Sullivan, continued, by saying as part of her acceptance speech.

“As always, I do this for the women – for my sisters especially,”she said.

“It’s a hard time right now for us, and I want to speak directly to the men: We need y’all. We need y’all to stand up. Stand up for us, stand up with us.

“If you have ever benefited from a woman making one of the toughest decisions of her life, which is to terminate a pregnancy, you need to be standing with us,” she continued.

“This is not just a woman’s issue. This is everybody’s issue, and we need your support more than ever – okay fellas? Y’all got us? Because we’ve got y’all.”

In the show’s first half hour, nearly every woman who took the stage commented on the issue: Best New Artist winner Latto said as part of her acceptance speech: “It’s about giving pro-choice… it’s about never giving in to a man policing my body.”

‘Full House’ star Jodie Sweetin was shoved by a Los Angeles Police Department officer while attending a rally protesting the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, which has effectively ended federal protections of abortion rights. According to ‘Variety’, a video of the Saturday’s incident began to make the rounds online after it occurred.

The footage depicts an LAPD officer grabbing and pushing Sweetin before the actress falls forward to the ground. A group of fellow protestors quickly rushes to help Sweetin up, while other admonish the line of police officers. The incident appears to occur along a freeway exit that the protesters had blocked.

“What the f**k is wrong with you guys?” yells one protester before a chant of “No justice, no peace” breaks out.

A representative for Sweetin confirmed that the actress and activist was the person featured in the footage.

“I’m extremely proud of the hundreds of people who showed up yesterday to exercise their First Amendment rights and take immediate action to peacefully protest the giant injustices that have been delivered from our Supreme Court,” Sweetin said in a statement following the incident.

“Our activism will continue until our voices are heard and action is taken. This will not deter us, we will continue fighting for our rights. We are not free until ALL of us are free.”

On Sunday afternoon, Sweetin also posted a response to the video, which features the caption: “The LAPD just manhandled actress/activist Jodie Sweetin at a pro-choice protest.”

“Thank you for posting. Love everyone out there in the streets fighting for what’s right… #WeKeepUsSafe,” she wrote on Instagram.
