The petition, filed by one Alka Priya, demanded a CBI probe into the incident.

A three-judge bench, headed by Chief Justice of India SA Bobde, has dismissed a petition seeking a CBI enquiry in Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s death case. The petition, filed by one Alka Priya, demanded a CBI probe into the incident.

Priya, in her petition, claimed that Rajput was a good person,adding that the actor had sponsored several children to NASA. The bench said it does not know whether the person was good or bad and stated that the matter is being investigated by Mumbai Police.

“We are not on whether the person was good or bad. The matter is being investigated by Mumbai Police. We are dismissing it,” the bench said.

The case of actor’s death took a new turn after his father, Krishna Kumar Singh, filed a complaint with Bihar police earlier this week accusing his rumoured girlfriend and actor Rhea Chakraborty, and six others, for the actor’s alleged suicide. The Bollywood actor died by suicide on June 14.

KK Singh alleged that Chakraborty had kept the actor from his family and completely in her possession. She was also handling his bank account, he alleged.

“At one point of time, my son decided to give up films, settle down in Coorg and pursue farming. He was blackmailed by Chakraborty who threatened him that she would make his medical history public and let the world know that he was mentally unstable, putting his career in jeopardy,” the father stated in the FIR.

The case was filed in Patna as Rajput’s 74-year-old father said he will not be able to go to Mumbai to fight the case due to his health issues.

Actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s father has levelled several allegations, including abetment to suicide, against Rhea Chakraborty in connection with his son’s death in his police complaint against her and six others, including her family members.

Krishna Kumar Singh lodged the first information report (FIR) at the Rajiv Nagar police station in Patna against Rhea Chakraborty and her family under the various sections of the Indian Penal Code (IPC), senior police officials said on Tuesday.

The case was filed in Patna as Rajput’s 74-year-old father said he will not be able to go to Mumbai to fight the case due to his health issues. Rajput was found dead in his Bandra flat in Mumbai on June 14.

* The case has been lodged under various sections of IPC including 341 (punishment for wrongful restraint), 342 (punishment for wrongful confinement), 380 (theft in dwelling house), 406 (punishment for criminal breach of trust), 420 (cheating and dishonestly inducing delivery of property) and 306 (abetment of suicide) and 120(B).

* “Sushant’s father has made a serious charge against Rhea and her family. He has alleged that she had kept Sushant away from his family and completely in her possession. She was also handling his bank account. It was also reported that crores of rupees were withdrawn from his bank account,” Sanjay Singh, inspector general of police (Patna Central Zone).

* Rajput’s father has said in his FIR that on June 8 when Rhea Chakraborty found that his son’s bank balance was going down, she left with cash, jewellery, laptop, credit card, its PIN number and password and important documents and doctors’ receipts.

* “Sushant called his sister and told her that Rhea had threatened him to show doctor receipts to the media and would prove him mad. Thereafter, no person would give him work,” Singh said in the FIR.

* “On June 8 night, Sushant’s secretary Disha committed suicide. Rhea had appointed her as Sushant’s secretary. Later, Rhea blocked Sushant’s number on her cell. Sushant was afraid that Rhea could have made him responsible for his manager’s suicide as she had threatened to frame him in the secretary’s suicide case.”

* In his complaint, Rajput’s father has also sought to invoke the provisions of the Mental Health Care Act, alleging that the “machinations” of Chakraborty and her family members had caused his son to crack up, despite a successful career in films, and ultimately drove him to suicide.

* KK Singh has accused Chakraborty of having befriended Rajput in May 2019 with a clear intent to use his good contacts for the advancement of her own career.

* He has also alleged that the actress was aided by her family members, including her parents, since they all were looking to “purloin the assets of my son worth crores of rupees and started interfering in all aspects of his life.”

* KK Singh also wants a police investigation to ascertain where the Rs 15 crore deposited in a bank account held by Rajput was transferred.

* The complaint said Chakraborty and her family convinced Rajput to leave his own residence and stay at a resort in the vicinity of Mumbai claiming his house was “haunted”.

* KK Singh has alleged that Chakraborty got Rajput treated by some “conniving” doctors for mental illness while keeping his family in the dark.

* “At one point of time, my son decided to give up films, settle down in Coorg and pursue farming. He was blackmailed by Chakraborty who threatened him that she would make his medical history public and let the world know that he was mentally unstable, putting his career in jeopardy,” he alleged in the FIR.

Gully Boy actor Siddhant Chaturvedi has shared a heartbreaking note for Sushant Singh Rajput whom he wanted to meet someday.

Siddhant Chaturvedi of Gully Boy fame has shared an emotional post in memory of late actor Sushant Singh Rajput who died by suicide on Sunday. He has shared how he wanted to meet him someday and have a conversation in Bhojpuri.

“Jab tum they, hum kujh nahi they, ab hum hain, to tum nahi, socha tha...milkar bhojpuri me batiyaenge tumse guru...Ballia se Patna itna bhi door nahi (When you were there, I was a nobody, now I am but you are not there. I used to think of meeting you and having a conversation in Bhojpuri with you...Patna isn’t that far from Ballia).”

While Sushant hailed from Patna in Bihar, Siddhant is from a nearby town Ballia in Uttar Pradesh. He had earlier shared a heartbreaking note on the actor’s death, along with a picture of them together, which he wanted to show him one day.

Siddhant had shared a picture from an event where he met Sushant and his Drive co-star Jacqueline Fernandez. Sharing it on Instagram, he wrote, “Ye Photo bohot khaas hai, Socha tha ki jab phir kabhi milengey toh dikhaunga aur poochunga - “Aap ko yaad hai?! Main wahi ladka hun. Yanhi se mera safar shuru hua tha, aur aap usme hamesha rahengey bhai. @sushantsinghrajput (This photo is very special. I had thought of showing it to you whenever we would meet and I would have asked you - “Do you remember? I am that boy. My journey had started my journey from here, and you will always be a part of it my brother).” Sushant was found dead at his Bandra apartment on Sunday. He was 34. He was cremated at the Pawan Hans crematorium in Mumbai on Monday in the presence of family members and close friends from the film and TV industry. Source : ht

Speaking about how she pulls off such emotionally draining performances like the ones in Highway, Udta Punjab, Dear Zindagi and  Raazi at such a tender age, Alia Bhatt says that experiences determine the age of a person.

Alia Bhatt said that she is now becoming a little more aware and mindful of her thought process and the way she deals with life.

Alia Bhatt has had multiple trysts with commercial cinema as well as intense, emotionally draining parts in films such as Highway (2014), Udta Punjab (2016), Dear Zindagi (2016), and now Raazi. But how does she come up with such nuanced performances, especially when she’s just 25?

The actor says, “I feel, your experiences determine your real ‘age’. By now, I’ve had so many experiences that I’m like, ‘Okay, this is one way to do it, and that’s the other,’” she says.

The Badrinath Ki Dulhania (2017) star adds that she’s undergoing some sort of a transformation now. “At this point in life, maybe, I’m choosing to become a little [more] aware and mindful of my thought process, besides the way I deal with my life,” says Alia.

“Honestly, I can be haphazard about it — which I have been — and that’s not a good feeling. It’s not a great thing to be constantly emotional,” she adds.

When the actor isn’t using her emotions for reel avatars, she taps into her feelings for a larger cause through her ecological initiative, Coexist. She says, “When it comes to Coexist, it’s all about helping and lending my support to a cause that I believe in, which happens to be the well-being of our planet, people, animals, as well as other things that make up our world and the environment.”

On Labour Day (May 1) this year, Alia signed up to become a Jal Mitra for Aamir Khan’s Paani Foundation and volunteered for the cause at Latur in Maharashtra. She says, “Aamir and his Paani Foundation have been doing fantastic work. They are educating farmers, villagers, and people, in general. Ultimately, farmers are our source of food and they’re facing problems because of the drought. What most people aren’t aware of is that drought can be tackled by [taking] certain measures.”

In fact, Alia finds it great that Aamir isn’t just making donations. “More importantly, he’s imparting knowledge. So, this isn’t just monetary assistance; such values stay with you for a lifetime. In fact, I, too, learnt about it that day itself. I was very impressed and also happy that I went there,” she says. Source : ht

I do some films for bill, some for dil: Adil Hussain

Written by Thursday, 14 September 2017 06:14

Adil Hussain’s next stage project will be a one-man act narrating the gist of the Bhagavad Gita. He will play both Krishna and Arjuna in it.

This year Adil Hussain was seen playing a frustrated, overworked son to a father who is desperately seeking salvation in critically-acclaimed Mukti Bhawan.

Next he will be seen in a bunch of smaller roles in Rajinikanth’s much awaited 2.0 and Neeraj Pandey’s Aiyaari and the 54-year-old actor says like any other artiste, he takes up some projects to pay his bills and some to satisfy his inner voice.

Hussain says, “Aiyaari and 2.0 are those small, tiny roles that I’m doing to pay my bills. Films like Mukti Bhawan don’t pay me. So I have to sort of balance it - some for bill, some for dil (heart).”

The actor, who won the National Award (Special Jury Mention) this year for the Shubhashish Bhutiani- directed movie, says after constantly working in films for over eight years, he is in a good headspace right now, ready to devote some time to his first passion -- theatre.

Hussain’s next stage project will be a one-man act narrating the gist of the Bhagavad Gita. He will play both Krishna and Arjuna with casting director Dilip Shankar, with whom the actor has earlier worked in films such as The Reluctant Fundamentalist and Life of Pi. The actor says, “I’m ready to take the plunge. But, hands down, it will be a big shift from being a lazy film actor on the sets to theatre. I’ll have to retrain myself to go back to the medium. But somehow I have managed to make myself comfortable with it. It’s my training that helps me switch on and switch off.”

He has been a sought-after name language films such as Assamese, Bengali, Tamil, Marathi and Malayalam. But it was only in 2012 when he shot for the Bengali film Sunrise that Hussain stopped worrying about being a good actor. “With each role I used to be really stressed till 2012.I felt I had to do good. So my teacher in Puducherry said, ‘I know you’re good but that’s not enough, is it?’ I answered in affirmative and asked him how to go beyond that.”

The actor said being true to the craft rather than being good at it helped him overcome his fear. “Why didn’t I attempt it before? It’s like you’re jumping from the cliff and there are just two possibilities - you die or you fly. So that has been happening since I did a play and the film ‘Sunrise’ - I had no idea. The burden of being good has left my shoulders only recently.”

Hussain will be seen in an intense film, Love, Soniya, which stars Lion child star Sunny Pawar and Freida Pinto. The actor also has Deb Medhekar’s directorial debut Bioscopewala, which is a modern adaptation of Rabindranath Tagore’s Kabuliwala with veteran actor Danny Denzongpa in the title role. “I play Mini’s father in the film. It’s a character inspired by photographer Prabuddha Dasgupta,” he says. Source : HT

Priyanka Chopra on Tuesday shared a video of a young Syrian refugee who despite living in a Jordanian camp for other displaced families like hers, remains a huge fan of Bollywood films, especially those starring Katrina Kaif.

Priyanka translated the girl’s message, and added, “This is a special shout out to one of India’s biggest movie stars. @katrinakaif this video is just for you, all the way from Za’atari Refugee camp in Jordan.”

“This is Wafaa, one of your biggest fans and her message roughly translated is ‘I love Katrina Kaif a lot and I am one of her fans. I have watched all her movies and never missed one, even if a movie is played more than once I watch it. I love you Katrina and love your beauty,’” she wrote.

Priyanka also said that she’d been told to convey messages of love “to these Massive Indian film superstars, who are favourites at Za’atari... SHAHRUKH KHAN, SALMAN KHAN, AKSHAY KUMAR, KAREENA KAPOOR and ANUSHKA SHARMA.”

Priyanka admitted that listening to what Wafaa had to say “was something I honestly did not expect...but it made my day.”

It left Priyanka with a sense of pride for her job. “Who would think that what we do as entertainers would give people a sense of hope, relief and escape in such dire circumstances,” she wrote.”This post is for all my colleagues in the Entertainment Business around the world... know what we do sometimes has such an (sic) deep impact on people’s lives and goes beyond just the mere entertainment people look at us for.”

Priyanka was visiting Jordan as a UNICEF goodwill ambassador. “I think the world needs to understand that this is not just a Syrian refugee crisis, it’s a humanitarian crisis,” she told AP.

After months of speculation whether Padmavati will release in 2017, it is now confirmed that Sanjay Leela Bhansali has decided to change the release date of his film starring Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor.

Waiting it out

The shooting of the film was delayed due to protests in Rajasthan, which is why the film is not ready. Even though they have finished shooting a major chunk, there is always a chance that some patchwork is needed. Plus, the post-production will take time, so SLB has decided to not rush it and come on a different date to allow better execution of the film.

Vacation time

Says a source, “SLB had an October 20 deadline, which is impossible to meet now. The workers’ strike took away a few important days. Meanwhile, two of the principal actors — Deepika and Shahid — also had free dates, so they took off on vacations. A lot of the shoot is still left. The major chunk may have been shot, but some big action sequences are still left. Ranveer’s portions as the young Alauddin Khilji, too, remain to be shot.”

An empty slot

Padmavati has now vacated the November 17 release date slot. Says a source, “The makers are planning to release it in February 2018. Apart from Anushka Sharma’s Pari (February 9, 2018), no other big film is slotted for February.”

Written by Saturday, 09 September 2017 07:52

 

Akshay Kumar is ringing in his 50th birthday today and to mark his golden jubilee, he treated his fans to a new poster of his upcoming Bollywood movie 'Gold.'

The excited birthday boy took to his Twitter handle and shared the official poster of the film, captioning it as, "Every cloud has a silver lining bt with ur love my clouds got a lining of Gold!As my age #TurnsGold,here's the poster of a film close to my?"

The poster, which depicts an Olympic gold medal with a picture of the 'Rustom' actor on it, has a tagline that reads, "The dream that united a nation."

Mouni Roy, who is also a part of this film, took to her Instagram and also shared this new poster with a caption, "Here's presenting the first poster of Gold. So very Happy to be a part of this dreamteam & here's wishing Akshay Sir the happiest most prosperous journey ahead. Love & regards??#AkshayTurnsGold @akshaykumar"

The biopic, which is based on the life of hockey player Balbir Singh, who was on the team that won the first Olympic medal for India as a free nation in 1948, is all set to hit the theatres on August 15, 2018.

Ask any actor of some worth. It is not easy to play a known living character. Audiences and the character that you are playing, plus their close associates, judge the performance with scrutinized harshness and normally find it wanting. Not this time. Not Arun Gawli. Not Arjun Rampal, who has shaped into one of Hindi cinema's most dependable actors who does his roles with such smooth efficiency and such noiseless excellence that we are liable to miss the point.

Don't make the mistake of confusing Arjun's laidback wisdom in portraying the gangster-philanthropist-parliamentarian-convict Arun Gawli as a Devgn-esque laziness. This is a power-packed implosive performance. Rampal plays Gawli as a time bomb waiting to explode. There are no extra toppings, fringe benefits, perks or bonuses to this performance.
 

Rampal plays it straight. Director Ashim Ahluwalia gives the actor no room to stretch out his character's inner world. Fleeting looks and fugitive gestures add up to making Rampal's Gawli one of the most comprehensive projections of guilty gangsterism in recent times.

Comparisons are not called-for. But I can't help compare Rampal's Gawli with Shah Rukh Khan's Raees. The two sagas of Robin Hoods with furious FIRs on their wanted heads, bear many similarities. Except that Shah Ruh could never enter his gangster character's world.

Arjun goes right in. He is the only recognizable face (provided his physical and emotional transformation leaves any room for recognition) in the vast cast of what I suspect to be several real-life anti-socials. Cannily, the director builds the quirks around killings and feuds of criminal clans through actors who surrender to their characters with a brutal velocity.

Watch out for Rajesh Shringapure as Gawli's accomplice Rama and Farhan Akhtar playing Dawood as so cool, you may confuse the jungle for the greenery. There is a brilliant conniving female character Rani (played with smouldering slyness by Shruti Bapna) who uses sex as an ATM machine. Rani tells part of Gawli's stories. Other people associated with his life tell the rest.

The editors piece together the saga with layered urgency. This is not an easy story to tell or for us to comprehend. There is no room here for any actor, least of all Rampal, to strut with guns and appear even remotely macho. If you are looking for a stylish take on gangsterism, look elsewhere.

Besides its technical excellence, the biggest achievement of Daddy is its portrayal of violence as swift, repugnant and utterly ugly. The shootouts and here I would like to commend action director Shyam Kaushal, are brutal, terse and to the point. The killers do their business with swift professionalism leaving no room for self-congratulatory paeans to violence that Tarantino, Coppola and nearer home, Mukul Anand and Mani Ratnam have specialized in.

In one notably savage attack, a petty gangster infiltrates a jail cell and pounds an inmate to a pulp after shooting him. What we see is the gut-churning fury of violence in all the graphic sequences of gangrenous gang wars where we hear every bone crunch with the wince-inducing impact of a blow delivered in our popcorn-munching faces.

For me, the real hero of Daddy, besides Rampal (and some, not all, of his co-actors) is the sound editor Sangik Basu followed by the cinematographer Jessica Lee Agne aided by Pankaj Kumar who bring to the frames a sinking feeling of an unwashed blood-soaked doom.
