Simi Garewal steps in to mediate for Padmavati with Maharani Padmini Devi of Jaipur

In a surprising and delightfully hope-giving move, the very elegant Simi Garewal, a self-proclaimed diehard fan of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s cinema, has stepped forward to mediate peace with the highly influential Maharani Padmini of Jaipur on behalf of the beleaguered Padmavati team.
Informed sources tell us that Simi, a long-standing friend of the Maharani took it on herself to broker peace for Bhansali. And the results are very encouraging. The Karni Sena which is enormously deferential to Maharani Padmini is expected to be summoned by the Maharani any time in the near future for a peace plan.
Apparently the Maharani, herself an admirer of Bhansali’s cinema, has expressed misgivings only about Rani Padmavati being shown dancing in the ‘Ghoomar’ song. In a long conversation that lasted nearly an hour, the Maharani told Simi that the ‘Ghoomar’ did not exist during the time of Rani Padmavati and even if artistic licence permits such time travel for the sake of aesthetic gratification, ..

Gujarat government places a ban on Padmavati

The troubles of the upcoming period action film Padmavati only seem to be getting more. In fact, the problems are increasing manifold. It all began when Sri Rajput Karni Sena started objecting to the film on the grounds that it distorts Rajput history. Very soon, their project gathered momentum and in no time, the ruling party BJP also joined in the fray. The chief ministers of Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh and Punjab too recently raised objections to the film’s content.
And now, the state of Gujarat too has come forward. The government of the state has placed a ban on the film and has even sent an official letter stating the same. It is signed by K L Patel, the joint secretary to government and it makes it clear that all the cinema theatres in Gujarat don’t have the required permission to exhibit Padmavati.
Chief Minister Vijay Rupani spoke to the media and said that the ban was placed to avoid law and order problems in the state at a time when elections are round the cor..

“Why was I not shown Aksar 2 after repeatedly requesting them for the same?” – Zareen Khan asks producers

Just last week multiple reports surfaced that claimed that the Aksar 2 actress Zareen Khan was at loggerheads with the film’s producers and director. In fact in a no holds barred conversation with Bollywood Hungama, Zareen even explained her grouse with the makers of Aksar 2. However, immediately post her revelations, the makers of the film and its director Ananth Mahadevan released a statement contradicting what Zareen had said, while at the same time claiming that the actress was informed of everything in advance.
But the battle between Zareen Khan and the makers of Aksar 2 seems to be far from over. Now responding to the fresh threat of legal action to be taken against her, Zareen Khan apparently has a very simple question for the makers of the film. Detailing the question Zareen adds, “I don’t have extra time and energy for these fights that don’t hold any value. My question to them is, if everything was so crystal clear and I was aware of everything that was shown in the film as ..

Manoj Bajpayee to star in Sushant Singh Rajput and Bhumi Pednekar's movie on Chambal dacoits Sushant Singh Rajput and Bhumi Pednekar are all set to work together for the first time in Abhishek Chaubey's movie based on Chambal dacoits. Now, as per reports in a leading tabloid, Manoj Bajpayee will also be a part of the movie. Manoj confirmed the news stating, “Yes, that’s true though we are yet to zero in on a name for my character. I always wanted to work with Abhishek as I’m a huge admirer of his work. I have seen all his films, from Ishqiya and Dedh Ishqiya to Udta Punjab. He picks his stories from rural or semi-urban areas and weaves them beautifully. When I got a chance to be a part of his story-telling, I couldn’t turn it down. For me, this film is not so much about the role as it is about working with Abhishek Chaubey” Manoj will start shooting for the film in February 2018. The talented actor will also start learning Bundelkhandi dialect. Talking about her role in the f..

Rajasthan government backs Padmavati protests even when its textbooks show the same narrative

Rajasthan government backs Padmavati protests even when its textbooks show the same narrative The Rajasthan government has been unapologetically supporting the protests led by self-vigilante groups against the release of movie Padmavati alleging historical accuracies. However, in a fresh development, a report in a leading daily suggests that the in the tourism department material of Rajasthan's textbook contain the similar narratives about queen Padmini. According to the report, the Class 12 history textbook of the Rajasthan state board states that one of the reasons why Alauddin Khilji attacked Chittor was to capture Padmini, the Rajput queen. The book further stated that Khilji saw Padmini's reflection in a mirror and was left mesmerised. Also, the book says that Rani Padmini was the daughter of Gandharvsen, king of Sri Lanka. The protesters have been disputing all three points in the film. Meanwhile, Karni Sena members have been protesting against an alleged dream sequence..

Padmavati cleared by British Censors to release on December 1

This is breaking news indeed. Amidst a hurricane of controversy in India, Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmavati has been cleared by British Board of Film Classification (BBFC). It was posted on their twitter handle @bbfc at around 12 midnight India time. The duration of the film is 164 minutes which makes it 2 hours 44 minutes. The Hindi version is 3 hours 13 minutes which means the International version is slightly shorter which is generally the norm.
Padmavati has been given a 12A rating with no cuts. The release date that has been mentioned is December 1st 2017. Now, this raises several questions. Was the film submitted to British Censors before the release date was deferred in India? Is Paramount planning to go ahead with its UK release even though it has not been cleared by India’s CBFC? There’s a loud uncertainty on when will it release or looking at the politically motivated protests, will it actually make it to the cinema halls in India.

This is surely an interesting development..

Ranveer Singh is a NO SHOW at Remo D'Souza's Dance Champions post Padmavati's release date delay Sanjay Leela Bhansali's magnum opus Padmavati was initially supposed to release on December 1, 2017. However, in an official statement by Viacom (Makers of Padmavati) the release date has been pushed though the new date has yet to be confirmed. In light of this, Ranveer pulled out of an appearance for an episode of Remo D’souza and Terence Lewis’s Dance Champions on Monday, according to a leading tabloid.

Ishaan Khatter chose Majid Majidi’s Beyond the Clouds over Karan Johar’s Dhadak as his debut film? Shahid Kapoor’s brother Ishaan Khatter is currently grabbing the limelight for his first film, Iranian director Majid Majidi’s Beyond the Clouds. The movie was recently screened at the opening ceremony of IFFI 2017 in Goa and garnered a lot of appreciation and praise.
We also know that Ishaan will be next seen in Karan Johar’s Dhadak, the poster of which released last week. However, as per a recent report, Karan wanted to launch Ishaan and Sridevi’s daughter Jahnvi, the way he mentored and launched Alia Bhatt, Varun Dhawan and Sidharth Malhotra in Student of The Year.
He wanted Ishaan’s debut movie to be a Dharma production. But, Ishaan refused Johar’s film altogether, saying he wanted Majidi’s film to be his launch pad. So eventually, Karan waited and allowed Ishaan to take his own decision.
Dhadak is a Hindi remake of Marathi super-hit movie, Sairat.

Parineeti Chopra: If I hear anything negative about Arjun Kapoor, I will stand up and defend him till the day I die Parineeti Chopra is currently riding high on success with her latest release, Golmaal Again. And now, the actress has an interesting line up of films ahead.
During an interview with a leading daily, when Parineeti was asked if she is ready to shoulder the responsibility of an entire film, she replied, ‘’I am a realist. I have to be realistic about the position I have in the industry at that time. If I am big enough a star to shoulder it; I will do it. I am an objective person. If I feel I am not, then I won’t waste someone’s money. Someone will pay about Rs 30 crores for a film and that person will probably go down in the dumps if the film doesn’t do well. I don’t want to be responsible for that. Right now what is good for me, I am doing.’’
Parineeti is currently shooting with Arjun Kapoor for Dibakar Banerjee’s, Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar. When asked about her equation ..
