Lyricist Manoj Muntashir pens song for debutant Mohd Kalam (Wed, 26 Jun 2019)
In the music industry it is a general rule that a song gets written first and then the makers look for a voice that will do justice to those words. Sometimes, on a rare occasion, the reverse can happen. That’s exactly what happened with song writer Manoj Muntashir, who has been looking for launching his production house. Says Muntashir, “A lot of aspiring singers keep coming to meet me. It so happened that I was free on one particular day and Mohd. Kalam met me and requested me to hear his song. I heard him out and realized that uski awaaz mein dard kamaal ka hai. I made him sing another sample and shared it with (music composer) Amaal Mallik. His instant reaction was: ‘sounds like a very good singer and has a lot of pain his voice.’ Armed with Amaal’s response I felt confident to share his song with Bhushanji (Kumar), who also liked it. I told him that I wanted to launch this new singer Mohd Kalam in a single, produced by my company Manoj Muntashir Entertainment.” Lyricist Manoj Muntashir pens song for debutant Mohd Kalam When asked about the inspiration behind the song ‘Tera Shehar’ Muntashir, adds, “Generally, what happens is that a song is written first and then we look for a singer who will voice those words. This time it was the reverse. We first liked a voice and then wrote a song that would suit Mohd Kalam’s voice. Since I was looking at launching my own production house, I was looking to do a song which I believed in. Mohd Kalam is a new talent but he is definitely a good singer. I am happy to start the journey of my production house with him because ultimately it is our duty to introduce new talent into the industry.” Bhushan Kumar’s company T-Series is presenting this song, composed by Amaal Mallik and it features actors Himansh Kohli and Pia Bajpiee in the video, directed by Shabby. ‘Tera Shehar’, produced by Manoj Muntashir Productions, R-Chills Music and Vishal Sadhariya will be launched on July 2.

Anurag Basu’s Rajkummar Rao, Fatima Sana Shaikh, and Abhishek Bachchan starrer is NOT a Life In A Metro sequel, here’s why (Wed, 26 Jun 2019)
Anurag Kashyap is sure shooting for a film starring Abhishek Bachchan, Rajkummar Rao, Fatima Sana Shaikh, Aditya Roy Kapur and Sanya Malhotra but it is not a sequel to Life In A ….Metro. While Life In a Metro was a slice of life film, this one is more of crime chronicles in the city. He said that there is a lot of dark humour in the movie and there are four short stories which are connected to each other just like in Life In Metro but those were based on relationships and love, this one is based on crime. He also said that he had met with Deepika Padukone for Imli but she has not been finalised yet. The movie was supposed to be done by Kangana Ranaut who walked out of it due to date issues.  Also Read: Anurag Basu directorial Life In A… Metro’s sequel to be titled Ludo?

She has been MIA for a while now and has been working on bettering herself as an actress and doing theatre. She was also taking acting classes and is now all set to make her comeback with a horror comedy series, Booo… Sabki Phategi. Mallika Sherawat talks about traditional Bollywood cinema being formulaic and fearful In an exclusive conversation with Bollywood Hungama, we asked her why don’t we see her in movies these days and her answer is pretty honest. Despite the demand, Mallika confesses that she has not been receiving good scripts for a long time now. She says, “I want to and I strive to do good films and good roles but they don’t come to me that easily. I have to source them and fight for them, I also think it’s very important to reinvent.” The actress has never shied away from putting her point across and this time too, she honestly pointed out the flaws of movie making in India. She says she prefers OTT platforms over films because as artists, they need to be fearless and traditional Bollywood is very formulaic and fearful. She also pointed out that majority of them are not keen on experimenting while the digital platforms are open to experiment and break new grounds.

OPINION: I am a man. I don’t support misogyny. And here’s why I still LIKED Kabir Singh (Wed, 26 Jun 2019)
NOTE: This article contains spoilers and gives away important plot points of Kabir Singh OPINION I am a man. I don’t support misogyny. And here’s why I still LIKED Kabir Singh There are two ways of recommending a film to your friends. One is when you have liked and not loved the film and you’ll be like ‘You should check out this film…it’s quite good’. And then there are times when you have gone crazy over a film and you go ‘Dude you have to see this film. No excuses’. The latter is how two of my pals compelled me to watch Arjun Reddy. An important point to note here is that both are girls. They are quite independent, free-spirited and won’t take sh*t from anyone. Yet, they enjoyed the film, not just for Vijay Deverakonda but also for the treatment and writing. Then later, I heard Jahnvi Kapoor taking Vijay’s name for a rapid fire question and how she’s keen to do a film with him. Arjun Reddy probably must have impressed the Sairat actress as well for it was this film that made him a star and an actor to watch out for. As Arjun Reddy’s almost scene-to-scene Hindi remake Kabir Singh released last Friday, the deluge of negative comments as a result stumped me. On one hand, moviegoers across all genders were raving. And then there were few who tweeted their anger towards the film and its content. And that’s absolutely fine as every opinion has to be respected, even the contrary ones. The issues raised by many of them made absolute sense too. My only problem is with one point – the notion that the film glorifies the toxic character. I don’t know what others feel but for me, the character of Kabir Singh is a textbook representation of how NOT to live life. And director Sandeep Reddy Vanga also tries to say the same, in my opinion. Otherwise why would he introduce Kabir with a scene where he almost rapes a girl at knife point? That sequence itself is quite repulsive and after that, even if Kabir Singh was shown finding a solution to global warming, I wouldn’t have been impressed with him. As the film progressed, it became more and more clear that there’s no way I am going to walk in his footsteps. He drinks and conducts surgeries. He chases the maid with murderous rage in his eyes for breaking a glass. He thinks it is okay to make out with his girlfriend on her terrace and when her father objects, it’s okay to believe he can’t see his point! And obviously, the way he targets Preeti in the college and even decides her friends is too much. This portion is unsettling but then it comes to light that Preeti is actually enjoying the attention. So the consent is very much there from her side. But what if she had refused his advances? Would Kabir Singh had respected her decision and moved on? It’s difficult to say. Perhaps Sandeep Reddy Vanga should have shown a bit of a back story of Kabir and how he reacted when a girl asserted ‘No I don’t love you’. Kabir Singh in a scene tells Preeti to adjust her chunni and probably it shows he’s going to be possessive about her even later. I would have loved to see Preeti having some male friends and Kabir’s reaction to it. I am sure it won’t have been favourable and it also fits the idea that he’s not a role model. This further gets reinforced when Kabir slaps Preeti because her father objected to their marriage, not before showing her ‘aukat’ that she is nothing without him. In the interval scene, Kabir commits a huge foolhardy act by injecting himself with morphine, while waiting helplessly for Preeti. She does turn up but it’s too late as he’s already unconscious and is not going to wake up until Preeti is married off to someone else! ‘What a loser!’, is what I exclaimed at this point, along with thousands of others! The madness continues in the second half and as Kabir goes on a self-destruction path and even rejecting the love of a lovely girl Jiya, you realize that this is a ‘gone case’ guy. The finale is again a bit uncomfortable when an adamant Kabir tells a heavily pregnant Preeti to dump her husband and settle with him. Thankfully, Preeti reveals that she left her husband’s house 3 days into the marriage and that she’s ready to marry Kabir! It was a relief and at the same time, I was amused that Kabir suffered so much when it could have been easily avoidable had he tried to establish contact with Preeti later on. But then maybe, this is the punishment the director wanted Kabir Singh to go through for all his sins. He is in depression for almost a year. He loses his grandmother, who was dearest to him. He loses his license to practice for five years. It’s not enough for all that he did though. Why did I like Kabir Singh? It’s for the way it’s made. The 172 minute long film doesn’t bore even for a second and kept me engrossed from start to finish. It was a fresh take on insane lengths that people sometimes go through when they don’t get united with their love. And everything – from Kabir’s toxic attempts at wooing Preeti in college to how his marriage is prevented to his stint as an alcoholic surgeon to the Jiya Sharma episode to the last 30 minutes – everything was unlike seen in any other movie. The stupendous performance by Shahid Kapoor added to the impact. Mainstream actors have often played negative characters and their depiction has been stylish while their actions criminal. Ranveer Singh in Padmaavat, Shah Rukh Khan in Darr, Sanjay Dutt in Vaastav, Tahir Raj Bhasin in Mardaani, and Jim Sarbh in Neerja…the list is endless. All these actors got praise from men and women alike but in no way they were glorified. They were all made to suffer in some way or the other and even if they don’t, the message is clear that such kind of role model can’t be right. The problem, in my opinion, is those films where the heroes’ actions are extremely questionable and yet they are made to seem as ‘achha banda’. Badrinath Ki Dulhania is an apt example. This is a film that made me very uncomfortable as the protagonist is sexist, believes in dowry and violent. He can’t bear to see his girl talking to another man. He repeatedly creates a ruckus in public and embarrasses the girl, in foreign land too. The heights are when he kidnaps her by dumping her in the trunk of the car and moves around! Yes, the girl errs by running away on the day of the marriage but are such actions justified? To top it all, the makers expect the viewers to root for this same guy in the end because he has a change of heart and mouths a monologue! If Kabir Singh led to so much of outrage, then by that logic, Badrinath Ki Dulhania should have become a national issue. Not to forget, Bardinath Ki Dulhania was a U/A film and promoted as a family entertainer! Kids have easy access to this film and they are the ones who get more influenced. Kabir Singh at least is an adult film and is not pretentious. At least in Kabir Singh, there’s no one in the film saying that he is an ideal man. Everyone knows in the film Kabir is twisted and not an inspirational figure, even when all gets well in the film. Preeti’s father definitely apologizes to Kabir in the end but in his mind, he still thinks that Kabir is an a**. Kabir’s bestie Shiva is even ready to marry his sister to him so that he comes out of the destructive phase. Even he knows he’s a pain but then what to do since he’s also a friend. In short, viewers came out of the auditorium, in awe of the film, and not at all or hardly for the character. At the very onset, I made it clear that nothing in the character of Kabir Singh is impressive. However, it was a pleasant surprise to see that during the pizza-sex-Limca sessions of Kabir and Preeti, studies don’t take a backseat. They are always with their books, even when they are half naked on the bed. And the scene where Kabir admits that he was intoxicated during operations, even when he had a way of avoiding that route, does catch your attention. Character wise, it is consistent as throughout the film, he is never shown lying. Even in front of his dean, he has no qualms in admitting that he indeed bashed the rival player, instead of downplaying the situation. Perhaps, when Kabir Singh’s baby will grow up, he/she will quote Nebula’s dialogue from Avengers: Endgame, “My father is many things. A liar is not one of them”. Needless to say, this is not an attempt to glorify him for it’s a dialogue originally meant for the villainous, evil and nasty Thanos!

Brock Lesner’s advocate Paul Heyman says he was not threatening Ranveer Singh (Wed, 26 Jun 2019)
Recently, WWE champion Brock Lesner’s advocate Paul Heyman took to Twitter to threaten Ranveer Singh. It all started after Ranveer Singh posted a picture with Hardik Pandya post India vs Pakistan match and captioned it, “Eat, Sleep, Dominate, Repeat.” The quote is very similar to Brock Lesner’s slogan, “Eat, Sleep, Conquer, Repeat.” causing copyright infringement. Brock Lesner’s advocate Paul Heyman says he was not threatening Ranveer Singh Heyman threatened to slap Ranveer Singh for using the quote without permission. After being enquired about the same, he said he wasn’t threatening him and that they have already informed Ranveer and Hardik about their displeasure of using their quote. Heyman also said that it has taken him and his client Brock years to perfect the quote and it is okay for him to be protective of a marketing phrase like that. Paul also denied the claims that said he is looking only for attention; he said if a statement is put out by him, they will definitely receive a legal notice. We wonder how things will go ahead from here for Ranveer and Paul Heyman. What do you think about this situation? Be sure to let us know.

Sajid Nadiadwala has a hat-trick of releases coming next, starts with Hrithik Roshan's Super 30 (Wed, 26 Jun 2019)
The second half of 2019 could well turn out to be truly eventful for Sajid Nadiadwala. Between July and October, he has a hat-trick of releases lined up next. These are Super 30, Chhichhore and Housefull 4. For a top producer to manage this feat, this is truly enviable as many filmmakers struggle to bring an average of even one film every year. On the other hand Sajid has managed three in quick succession. Sajid Nadiadwala has a hat-trick of releases coming next, starts with Hrithik Roshan's Super 30 "This is what Sajid does; he brings the best team on board, is involved creatively as well instead of just being Mr. Moneybags, and still allows the director and the production team to do their job along with the actors. There is a thin line between involvement and interference. If you interfere, you can't bring three films in a back to back manner. However when you are involved, you can, and this is where Sajid scores," says an insider. Though he is a director himself (and the first and only debutant to actually start his career behind the camera with a Rs. 200 Crore Club film) after delivering a Blockbuster in Kick, Sajid ensures that his directors have a voice of their own when they make their film. "Whether it is Vikas Behl [Super 30], Nitesh Tiwari [Chhichhore] or Farhad Samji [Housefull 4], each one of them has brought his own style and technique into play with these respective films," the insider continues, "Sajid is well aware though of what's happening on each of these films though." While Super 30 is set for release in just a couple of weeks from now (on July 12), there is Chhichhore coming next on August 30. The biggest of them all is going to be Housefull 4 though which is a marquee offering from Nadiadwala Grandson. There are huge plans to make this Diwali release (on October 25) truly special. "There is a lot that Sajid has on plate," a close associate adds, "Other than these three films, he is also occupied with the making of three to four other films which are in different stages of production and would start releasing from 2020 onwards. Then there is his directorial Kick 2 as well for which plans have been formulated. As a producer as well as a director, Sajid Nadiadwala is combining accountability with empowerment to get the best results for his production house." Now is the time for the results to be declared as well and Super 30 should be the one to get this going.

Shahid Kapoor starrer Kabir Singh lands in trouble after doctor files an official complaint (Wed, 26 Jun 2019)
Shahid Kapoor and Kiara Advani starrer Kabir Singh has been doing exceptionally well at the box office and it definitely is one of the best performances of both the actors. While the movie is making big money, it is also being criticised for being misogynistic and offensive towards women. Even though the performances are being lauded, there are a lot of people who have criticised the script in general. Shahid Kapoor starrer Kabir Singh lands in trouble after doctor files an official complaint Looks like trouble time’s not over for team Kabir Singh as a doctor has filed an official complaint saying that the movie is showing doctors in a bad light. The movie has Shahid Kapoor playing a doctor who performs multiple surgeries under the influence of alcohol and drugs. The doctor said that it shows the entire profession in a bad light and has filed a complaint to Central Board of Film Certification, Central Health Minister, Information and Broadcasting Ministry, and State Health Ministry and has requested the authorities to stop the film’s screening. Apart from the complaints, the movie is definitely Shahid’s biggest opener at the box office in all of 16 years of his career. The movie’s songs are being appreciated as well and it is being said that after a really long time, all the songs from a movie are great to listen to. Shahid, however, remains unfazed by the criticism. Also Read: Shahid Kapoor and Kiara Advani celebrate the success of Kabir Singh on Instagram in a funny way!

“Our film is NOT called FIGHTER, or anything else at the moment,” says Tiger Shroff about his film with Hrithik Roshan (Wed, 26 Jun 2019)
Tiger Shroff’s actioner with his idol Hrithik Roshan which Siddharth Anand is currently directing for Yash Raj Films is in a terrible titular crisis. The film is 80 percent complete and all set for a Gandhi Jayanti release. But there is still no title. Some extra-creative websites have come up with a brainwave for the title-less film. “Fighter….is it?” Tiger Shroff mulls over that one. “Interesting, but sadly not true. Our film is not called Fighter, or anything else at the moment.” “Our film is NOT called FIGHTER, or anything else at the moment,” says Tiger Shroff about his film with Hrithik Roshan But isn’t it about time Hrithik and Tiger’s film found a name? “I know time is ticking away and we can’t go around talking about our film without giving it a name. It would look very odd to keep referring to the film without giving it a name. We are trying to figure out a name and we should, no we must, have one soon.” Tiger is especially proud of this unnamed film. “It brings me face-to-face with my idol Hrithik Sir. I’ve idolized him and tried to follow in his footsteps from the time I started preparing for career in films. And to now share the screen with him is dream come true. I get to learn so much from him. Just being around him is a blessing for me.” Interestingly, Tiger plays a guru-shishya kind of game with Hrithik in this untitled film. Before anyone asks…yes, they have a hand-to-hand combat. And will the two dancing phenomena come together for a naach jugalbandi? YES!!! Also Read: Hrithik Roshan-Tiger Shroff film’s ACTUAL title to be unveiled this month; trailer expected in August

What are Kartik Aaryan & Sara Ali Khan up to? (Wed, 26 Jun 2019)
This is not a prying piece about two people in love. Kartik Aaryan and Sara Ali Khan are young and single, and they have every right to do what they want with their lives. None of anyone’s business, really. But there is just one problem here. Kartik and Sara are making their friendship everybody’s business by playing a very weird game of hide n seek with the public and media, a hide n seek where there are pretending to hide their togetherness but making sure everyone can see them. What are Kartik Aaryan & Sara Ali Khan up to Sometime ago on Eid, Kartik and Sara visited a mosque together with their faces covered. And then they posted ‘together’ pictures about their “secret” visit. And now with their faces again covered Bollywood’s “open-secret” couple were seen roaming the streets of Shimla, getting accosted by fans. A young actress who is also in love commented, “It’s almost as if they want everyone to see them together while they pretend that they don’t want to be seen together. Why would they visit such crowded places with their faces covered when everyone can see who they are and why they are pretending to hide their faces?” Our advice to this lukka-chuppi couple. Do your own thing. And please stop looking over your shoulder to see if people are looking.

Sunaina and Roshans situation gets stickier (Tue, 25 Jun 2019)
There is tremendous distress in the Roshans’ household, a state of anxiety and dread dominates the family at the moment. The situation is made worse by prying journalists who are oblivious of the family’s need for privacy as the Roshans try to sort out their crisis vis-à-vis the daughter Sunaina. Sunaina and Roshans situation gets stickier As one member of the Roshan family told me, “There are two kinds of media invasions on our privacy right now. One from the unapologetic invasive prying section and the other more dangerous intrusion comes from journalists pretending to be well-wishers and friends of the family when all they want is some spicy inside details. All we want is to be left alone at the moment.” According to a close friend of the Roshans, Sunaina’s parents’ worry is not about her boyfriend being Muslim but his marital status and his refusal to acknowledge Sunaina publicly. Says the friend, “This chap whom Sunaina is seeing is apparently married and has children. That’s why Guddu and Pinky (Rakesh Roshan and wife) are going nuts. Sunaina has already made monstrous marital mistakes. Her parents don’t want her to end up making one more wrong choice of partner.” Making matters worse is the fact that the alleged boyfriend Ruhail Amin seems impervious to the calamitous happenings in the Roshan household. Ruhail is quoted in Kashmir Life as saying, “I have nothing to say (about) what is going on…Bollywood is a trivial place where people can write anything.” The above statement has left everyone close to the Roshans deeply concerned. If Ruhail Amin suggests that people are writing “anything” then he is clearly denying the relationship with Sunaina Roshan. Where does that leave the lady who is rebelling against her family for love?
