Richa Chadha plans to take Bholi Punjaban on a stand-up act

We got a glimpse of Richa Chadha as Bholi Punjaban in the recently released trailer of Fukrey Returns. While the trailer made everyone a tad bit nostalgic about the earlier instalment that released in 2013, it also created enough excitement as the film is all set to hit the big screen this year. In an interview, Richa said that audiences feel that she is Bholi Punjaban in real life as well which is actually untrue. However, she is more than happy to reprise the character on stage.

People close to Richa say that she is the funniest person to be around off camera and have also stated that she will definitely make you laugh at least once. Bholi Punjaban is been loved by the audiences so much that Richa is planning to take this character on to the stand-up stage. Sometime back, Richa did try her hands on stand-up comedy and was loved by the audience. She also was a part of a TV series, Queens of Comedy. Now Richa has decided to put on her on screen character yet again and is now prepping for the same.

When asked Richa about the same, she said, “We had this idea, it’s very nascent, that Bholi should take to stage. Every dialogue she utters sounds like a roast in any case. I think there’ll be a big audience for this kind of thing and it’ll be fun to try out”

On the work front, as mentioned before Richa Chadha will turn Bholi Punjaban once again for Fukrey Returns and we must say that her character is indeed the most badass comedic female characters in Indian cinema. As for the film, it is all set to hit the big screens this December.

3Novices: Padmavati row: Complaint filed against Javed Akhtar in Jaipur for hurting Rajput sentiments

Padmavati row: Complaint filed against Javed Akhtar in Jaipur for hurting Rajput sentiments

Padmavati row Complaint filed against Javed Akhtar in Jaipur for hurting Rajput sentiments

Filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s upcoming magnum opus film Padmavati is embroiled in a spate of controversies. From Rajput Karni Sena and politicians, every other person is speaking out against the film. While many industry members are mum on the controversy, people like Farhan Akhtar, Salman Khan, Jacqueline Fernandez, and Sidharth Malhotra amongst others have backed the filmmaker and the movie.

One of the supporters of the film is poet and lyricist Javed Akhtar. Speaking to a leading news channel News Tak, he said, “The Rajputs and the Rajwadas never fought against the British and now they are taking to the streets against a film and a filmmaker. All these ‘ranas’ ‘rajas’ and ‘maharajas’ of Rajasthan were serving in the courts of the British for 200 years. Where did their Rajput honour and valour go that time? They have become what they are since they had accepted to serve the British.” Javed Akhtar further condemned the threats and protests against Padmavati and the cast.

It has, now, been learned that an advocate from Jaipur has filed a complaint against Javed Akhtar for hurting the sentiments of Rajputs and creating enmity between different groups. The FIR has been filed under Section 153 (Promoting enmity between different groups), 298 (Uttering, words with deliberate intent to wound the religious feelings of any person), 504 (Intentional insult with intent to provoke breach of the peace) of the IPC.

Directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali, Padmavati stars Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor. It was earlier supposed to release on December 1. Now, the makers have voluntarily postponed the film and no new date has been announced.

Juhi Chawla reveals that there may be a ban on bottled water in restaurants by March 2018

For years, Juhi Chawla has been striving hard, campaigning for causes related to the environment. From supporting the beach cleaning initiative to ban on plastic, the former beauty queen has been urging people to support the welfare of environment. Continuing on the same path, Juhi recently spoke out on ban on plastic bottled water.

Juhi Chawla reportedly expressed her happiness after she apparently received news that the Maharashtra State Government is planning to ban plastic bottled water in Mantralaya, government offices and even hotels and restaurants by March 2018. Talking about how the plastic that is thrown away in oceans often leads to landfills, thereby harming the environment immensely, Juhi also revealed about how she has strived to make her home 95 percent plastic free.

From lunch boxes and water bottles of her children Arjun and Janhavi to plastic bags and containers in her kitchen, the actress has done away with all the plastic around her. Furthermore, the actress also mentioned about how she supervises everything that comes into the house to ensure that they aren’t using any plastic.

Avoiding Himalayan or any other brand of water, Juhi Chawla also ensures that the restaurant water is either filtered or stored in glass bottles but refuses to accept plastic bottled water. Furthermore, she has replaced her plastic toothbrush with a bamboo one which is 100 percent biodegradable. Not just that, the mother of two also spoke about avoiding thermocol plates and cups and believes that paper plates without plastic coating, donas [leaf cups], palm or banana leaf are much safer options for times when we require use-n-throw serving items.

However, the actress has not only managed to bring a change in her lifestyle with these alternatives for plastic but she is also working hard to avoid water packets and bottles during international tournaments. Speaking on the same, Juhi explained about how she has been constantly reminding her global teams namely Cape Town Knight Riders in the T20 Global League in South Africa and Trinbago Knight Riders in the Caribbean League to have environment friendly in-stadium branding. In fact, talking about how her KKR partner Shah Rukh Khan has been co-operative in their Indian sports endeavors, Juhi mentioned about replacing the plastic sticks of Kolkata Knight Riders’ flag with thin paper and how it will be further refined next year.

With so much of efforts being taken by the star to avoid the usage of these harmful chemicals, Juhi Chawla is now urging her fans to follow a similar path and find solutions to make the world plastic-free.

3Novices: Controversial film S Durga emerges victorious as Kerala high court passes judgment in favour of the film

Controversial film S Durga emerges victorious as Kerala high court passes judgment in favour of the film

Controversial film S Durga emerges victorious as Kerala high court passes judgment in favour of the film

Filmmaker Sanal Kumar Sasidharan’s film S Durga or rather Sexy Durga faced several issues after I&B Ministry decided to drop the film from the ongoing film festival IFFI. The film that faced objections from a certain section also led to exit of two jury members from the festival, namely Bollywood filmmaker Sujoy Ghosh and writer Apurva Asrani. However, now after the makers decided to move the Kerala High Court on the matter, they can heave a sigh of relief since the court has passed a judgement favouring them.

Sexy Durga faced objection on the grounds of offending Hindu religious sentiments over its title and followed by the case against the film, the Kerala High Court in a single bench headed by Justice K Vinod Chandran passed a judgement dismissing the objections. Relieved over the recent turn of events, Sanal took to Facebook to share the happy news saying, “I usually don’t celebrate victories. But this I can’t stay away. This is the victory of cinema. This is the victory of our democracy. This is the victory of those people from jury who sacrificed. Cheers India!”

On the other hand, the two prominent Bollywood personalities who walked out of the festival owing to the way the films were dropped too expressed their happiness on the same. Terming that Sanal’s persistence has paid off, writer Apurva Asrani revealed about how great it is that they have now got a chance to see the film. Furthermore, he was also appreciative of I&B Minister Smriti Irani and called her an empowered woman and that she would love to see the film.

However, the matter hasn’t ended here as the IFFI officials have clarified that they haven’t received any official orders from the court about the film. Vani Tripathy Tikoo and director of the festival, Sunit Tandon have maintained that they haven’t received any such intimation from the court and that whatever they know is from the media reports.

Miffed with the way the authorities are reacting to the matter, Sanal Sasidharan yet again took to social media to share his anger wherein he posted, “IFFI director is evading the acceptance of the order of Honourable High court. The government is openly challenging the judicial system also. I have sent a mail with the court order. The learned government pleader must have informed them too. The ministry is going totally unconstitutional. Where this country is going to.”

According to recent media reports, the court has allowed the film S Durga to be screened in the Indian Panorama section of IFFI 2017. Besides this film, yet another regional language film that has faced a similar situation is Ravi Jadhav’s Marathi social drama Nude.
