Ajay Devgn-Rakul Preet starrer De De Pyaar De to release on this date

2 hours ago  
News / Mid-Day/ Mumbai  
Ajay Devgn and Rakul Preet Singh starrer De De Pyar De has a new release date yet again. Editor-turned-director Akiv Ali's romcom was slated to release on February 22, 2019, but in October, it was announced that it has been pushed to April 26. On Saturday, the makers announced a fresh date. The film, which also stars Tabu, will now release on March 15. The rethink is apparently due to the clash with Avengers: Endgame, which is now releasing on April 26 and not May 3 as earlier announced. The makers, however, claim that as the film is complete, they have advanced the date. De De Pyaar De also stars Tabu in pivotal role among others. Ajay Devgn is also attached to work in Luv Ranjan's next directorial. The film, also stars Ranbir Kapoor, will release on December 25, 2020.

Harshvardhan Kapoor ready to shoot Abhinav Bindra biopic?

3 hours ago  
News / Mid-Day/ Mumbai  
The long-in-the- planning biopic on shooter Abhinav Bindra is said to finally roll next month. It's been over two years since the project was announced. The movie did not take off due to production issues. Harshvardhan Kapoor plays the Olympic champion. Dad Anil Kapoor is also part of the film. Word is Harsh has started prepping for the film. Harshvardhan Kapoor, who is gearing up for the yet untitled biopic of Olympic champion Abhinav Bindra, said in an interview that he is a passive person by nature, a trait similar to the ace shooter. As the actor has been preparing for his part as Bindra, he is internalising some of his characteristics, Kapoor said. "I am a passive person by nature. I do not express any emotion very loudly — whether I am happy or sad. It is interesting that Bindra's personality and the behavioural pattern is also similar to mine." Despite the similarities, he said playing such a character poses its own challenges. "I have to make an internal performance en..
                 

Mumbai: Bandra dividers, fixed three days back, crumbling again

News / Mid-Day/ Mumbai  
Shoddy work continues to deface the city's roads. One such example is Bandra's Hill Road, where despite the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) repairing dividers just three days ago, on Saturday locals alleged they were in worse condition. Locals allege there was no supervision of work carried out despite BMC making it mandatory. 'Repaired' dividers brokenThe BMC had started taking action against illegal hawking at Hill Road as a traffic decongestion plan. The BMC then also started road widening, and dividers, too, were to be developed. But, just before St Stanislaus School, the medians that were repaired only a few days ago, are again in bad shape, allege locals. A local said they have now become immune to BMC's inaction. A senior citizen, Abbas Abdul Hussain, said, "This matter needs to be looked at closely because the dividers are broken and could be fatal for motorists." Another local, Kamraj said, "Just three days back the civic body completed the work and today the div..

Eat rightNutritional consultant Jaydeep Bhuta, who has worked with the likes of Swara Bhasker and Huma Qureshi, says we have got it all wrong. "The word detox is incorrect; the scientific term is free radical. Our body is made up of cells that consist of atoms. Every atom's outer orbit has an electron pairing. Bajra risotto Whenever eating habits are not ideal, this pairing breaks and the single electron tends to draw other electrons from nearby atoms in order to stabilise, which can in turn lead to damage, and is the primary cause for free radicals," he explains, adding that eating right doesn't only include ..

Bandra's Bombay Art Society played host to the launch last week of a unique exhibition, which displayed limited edition artwork made from non-medical grade cane. Conceptualised by the Bengaluru-based sustainable design practice Rise Design Art, the pieces in the exhibition titled 'Inception Exhibit,' are designed by current artist-in-residence and National Institute of Design (NID) alumnus Sanjay Kumar. The cane used is, in fact, a remnant of the medical-grade cane used to make high-quality and affordable prosthetic legs, which they do under the Rise Design Lab. Founder Arun Cherian explained, "It is still very good cane. It's just that it isn't quite fit to make prosthetic legs.

Mumbai: 150-year-old Chira Bazaar market to finally be razed

News / Mid-Day/ Mumbai  
With all the uncertainty around when the Mumbai Metro Rail Corporation Limited (MMRCL) will demolish the 150-year-old Chira Bazaar market, the fate of more than 100 fisherwomen, vegetable vendors and meat shop-owners continues to hang in the balance. However, members of the Chira Bazaar Maasli Vikreta Mandal (Chira Bazaar Fishsellers' Association) told mid-day that in all probability, the property will be demolished on Monday, almost three years after the MMRCL issued notice to them to vacate the premises by December 6, 2018, to make way for the Metro 3 construction work. The 90-odd fisherwomen, most of whom belong to the Koli community, have decided to stage a protest inside the market today, to oppose the move. While the MMRCL has put up a board outside the market declaring the dilapidated structure their property, members of the fishsellers' association struggled through Sunday to sell off their stock in view of their uncertain future.

After composing for MS Dhoni: The Untold Story (2016), Amaal Mallik is now scoring for yet another biographical sports film based on the life of badminton champ, Saina Nehwal. Amole Gupte's directorial venture has Shraddha Kapoor play the ace shuttler. Unlike creating music for any other movie, a biopic, the composer-singer says, warrants a distinct approach. "You are dealing with real people. They are role models; idols with legions of fans. They have participated in international competitions and brought glory to the country. We read about their victories and defeats. They are constantly under the scanner, so you have to get into their mindset." Amaal Mallik In a typical Bollywood potboiler, actors break into a song just about anywhere ­- from bedrooms to beach-fronts ­- and at any time. They don't need a reason to shake their booty and croon. As Mallik puts it, "The audience is aware that it is fiction. In biopics, you not only have the audience in mind while composing.

News / Mid-Day/ Mumbai  
A Demolition drive by the Forest Department from Friday in Panvali village near Titwala, led to a rail roko on the Central Railway's mainline on Sunday. Sources said the Forest Department had been removing illegal settlements in the area, and the affected locals walked up to Titwala station on Sunday afternoon, and gathered on the tracks in large numbers, refusing to budge. The Forest Department allegedly took action against over 2,000 illegal settlements leading to the mass protest. This led to detention of mail and express trains, before RPF and local police could reach the spot in large numbers, to remove the protesters. The rail roko further disturbed the railway's Sunday timetable that had already been affected by a mega block on the line, leading to crowds and chaos.
