EXPLOSIVE: Single screen exhibitors SLAM Bollywood; URGE them to make more 'pan India' commercial films - Part 1

Since a couple of years and until the lockdown was enforced, the success rate of Bollywood films had improved significantly. But that alone doesn’t give a complete picture. Most of these movies made money only in multiplexes, that too in a handful of urban centres. However, India is much more than these few cities. There are several hundreds of towns and villages where several single screen cinemas exist. These can be found in metropolitan cities as well. And in these theatres, majority of our ‘hit’ films prove to be a flop because the content just doesn’t appeal to the audiences there. Hence, it’s no surprise that while new multiplexes are being made in megacities like Mumbai and Delhi, single screens on the other hand are shutting shop. Several webinars of exhibitors have taken place off late wherein one factor has emerged clearly. The ones in the South are worried right now due to zero business but are more confident of bouncing back. The reason? They know that the South filmmakers..

Rashami Desai removed from Naagin 4 as makers look to cut down on budget?

It wasn't long back that Rashami Desai happily introduced us to her Naagin 4 character Shalaka and shared her first looks on Instagram. However, thanks to the ongoing pandemic and the lockdown, numerous films and TV shows are in the midst of uncertainty, and this might as well mean Rashami's exit from the show.

Another report by a leading daily also suggests that the show is going to get a revamp soon and many major characters, including that of Nia Sharma, will not be pursued anymore. Rashami, who rose to major fame with Bigg Boss 3, didn't take long to grab a role in Naagin 4. This certainly isn't good news for her fans, but we can hope to get her back soon, on ..

"Our solutions are in nature"- says Dia Mirza, urges us to give back to nature

“Every breath of air we take, every mouthful of food we eat, depends upon a healthy natural world.” This statement by Sir David Attenborough is a simple and effective description of the delicate balance between man and nature. A balance that Dia Mirza has focused on in her conversations on environmental and wildlife conservation in the country. May 22nd declared as the International Day for Biological Diversity (IDB) by the United Nations 20 years ago, presents a theme that couldn’t ring truer now more than ever before — “Our solutions are in nature”. As an invisible virus engulfs the globe, Dia reiterates that so much of what is happening to mankind bears unmistakable ties with nature and the environment. “All of our solutions have always been in nature. It’s a message we have heard numerous times before but as a planet are recognizing it only now,” Mirza says.

No Padma awards for Rishi Kapoor

One night in 2017 my dear friend and one of my favourite actors Rishi Kapoor sent me three stills of a 90-plus old man. I confess I was puzzled. Was the actor sending the wrong pictures in a sozzled state? Turned out, that was Rishi Kapoor playing a 90-year old patriarch in the Karan Johar production Kapoor & Sons. You could have knocked me down with a feather! Rishi Kapoor? Really?! This was not the first time I wondered if Rishi Kapoor is the most versatile star-actor that India has produced. And the most short-changed. I watched this actor with growing delight of ever-renewed discovery, from the time he stole the show from under Simi Garewal and Manoj Kumar’s nose in Raj Kapoor’s Mera Naam Joker. Rishi never ceased to be a natural-born scene-stealer. During the 1980s when all the other leading men of Bollywood were swept away in the Bachchan wave, Rishi held his own. In heroine-oriented film like Damini, Chandni and Prem Rog, Rishi drew out delicately nuanced portrayals that st..
