Movies / Bollywood Hungama/ Bollywood News  
As the title suggests, Main Mulayam Singh Yadav is a biography of the former Chief Minister of UP. In M S Films and Productions' upcoming movie Main Mulayam Singh Yadav, Amyth Sethi is portraying the legendary Politician himself who wrestled and found his way among the other giants. Portraying Mulayam Singh Ji as a farmer’s son, as a wrestler, as a teacher, and most importantly as a reputed politician in the debut film must be exciting and terrifying at the same time. The film is directed by a well-known Bengali director Suvendu Raj Ghosh. Occupied with the post production work on Main Mulayam Singh Yadav, Suvendu Raj Ghosh has announced his new project already and it is titled Suroor. It is completely different genre, a Murder mystery.

It was a challenge to make a horror film especially when audiences weren’t tha..

COVID-19: Hema Malini's amendment to prohibit artistes over the age of 65 raises questions

5 hours ago  
News / Mid-Day/ Entertainment  
On May 31, the state government announced the resumption of film and television shoots, issuing a comprehensive set of guidelines to be followed by the cast and crew. One of the regulations barred artistes and technicians over 65 years from shooting. This has created a furore in the industry that has several senior actors — including Amitabh Bachchan, Naseeruddin Shah, Shabana Azmi, Dharmendra and Mithun Chakraborty — at the top of their game. Last week, Hema Malini shot off a letter to Home Secretary Ajay Kumar Bhalla, requesting an amendment in the resolution. She cited the examples of Bachchan, Anupam Kher and herself stating that they "will be restricted from completing their previous and recurring projects." Azmi, who was to film Mughal, her next with Nikkhil Advani, asserts that the rule is discriminatory. "A small portion of Vikas Khanna's untitled film has yet to be shot. What happens to these projects? Why should producers have to sign on younger artistes and make..

News / Mid-Day/ Entertainment  
UndekhiOn: SonyLIVDirector: Ashish R. ShuklaCast: Harsh Chhaya, Dibyendu Bhattacharya, Surya Sharma, Ayn Zoya, Abhishek ChauhanRating:  The best thing about making a show or a film without any big stars is that there's an immediate connect with the characters. Even better is to cast actors who have been acting for long but never had their moment of glory. 2020 seems to be the year of fictional cops having a ball. Jaideep Ahlawat reinvented himself with Paatal Lok. The same, almost, happens with Dibyendu Bhattacharya, who plays DSP Ghosh in Undekhi, the latest show on Sony LIV. The first shot of the show is a wide shot of the gorgeous jungles of the Sunderban. Immediately, there's a close-up shot of the corpse of a cop, lying bruised and battered. Ghosh has been informed that the case is much deeper and denser than what it actually seems to be, two dancers are also missing nearby, and his investigations take him to Manali, where a wedding is on its verge. It's from this point that ..
