Sidharth Malhotra’s love for the south!

Ever since Marjawaan, Sidharth Malhotra has been the talk of the town for all the positive reasons. Also for making appearances with his rumored girlfriend Kiara Advani. 😉 Despite some unique elements like a mute lead actress and a dwarf-sized villain, the film received mixed reviews from the critics as well as the audience. Post-Marjawan, the actor now has another interesting project coming up for him and that is none other than a Telugu film remake. 

 

Just like Marjaawan, Sidharth Malhotra is doing the rounds for a new action project on the block. This movie will be a remake of a Telugu film which is produced by Dil Raju who FYI is also producing Shahid Kapoor’s next Jersey. As per the sources, Sidharth Malhotra has already signed the untitled project as the lead. The makers, in fact, are already in the script development process of the film.

Meanwhile, Bollywood has perfected the formula of popularizing the cult south movies in the industry. Not to forget, the much-talked about Kabir Singh which was also a remake of 2017’s Telugu film Arjun Reddy. Now, we cannot keep calm to witness another blockbuster in the making. 

 

Meanwhile, the actor will also star in an upcoming biopic Shershah based on the life of a Kargil war martyr Vikram Batra. He will be seen alongside Kiara Advani, Paresh Rawal, and Jaaved Jaffery. This one seems like a promising one too, right?

 

Kangana Ranaut’s new look from Panga is here!

Kangana Ranaut yet again proved her strong presence in Bollywood with her recent films like Manikarnika -The Queen of Jhansi and Judgemental Hai Kya. On one hand, she can be the poised ruler of the kingdom or play an eccentric avatar of not getting judged. She has got it all and that’s what sets her apart. 

 

It seems that the Queen is unstoppable as she will be seen in her next big project Panga. Helmed by Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari, the film is a sports drama where she will be playing the role of a mother as well as a kabaddi player. Kangana’s sister Rangoli was the one to reveal her first look of the film on Twitter. We all need a sibling like Rangoli who stands strong for her sister in whatever the situation may be. As goes the famous saying ‘Sisters Before Misters’, this one is true here, right?!

 


Soon the director, as well, shared the exciting news on Instagram. She also unveiled the film’s release date through the hashtag in the caption – “Human life is complex and incredible. May be that’s why storytellers were born”. #justthinking #Pangastories #Panga #24Jan2020”.

Guess who is making a biopic on Om Puri

The late veteran actor Om Puri was loved by all. From the very beginning of his career, he had always worked in movies that were unique and appealed to the masses.

In 2009, his wife Nandita Puri released a biography on him that revealed all his personal details and this did not bode well with the actor. The biographic was called “Unlikely Hero: The Story Of Om Puri”. When asked about the movie here’s what Nandita had to say, “I am adapting the book. I am making a biopic on Omji. I am taking part of the book and I am putting it as he wanted, as an inspirational story,”.

When asked about the star cast, here’s what she said, "it is difficult to do so. We are just at the developing stage of the screenplay. The script is the most important thing for a film,

When Nandita was asked about the movie and book here’s what she shared. “A few parts from the book and will mostly be throwing light on his struggle, the way Omji wanted. As a journalist, I had gone to interview him. He said, why don't you put my life story. He came from a very humble background. He worked at a tea stall at the age of six to put food for the family on the table.

His journey involved facing very difficult circumstances… From literally starving at FTII (Film and Television Institute of India)… If it hadn't been for Girish Karnad who gave him a film and he got Rs 3000 and managed to get through two years of FTII on that. It was very difficult.

Even veteran filmmaker Shyam Benegal had told me that when Omji was working in Mumbai, he was so poor and thin, he was down with jaundice and they used to think that he did not know whether the next meal was coming or not. From that, there are a hundred inspiring incidents from his childhood — how he overcame this, how he lived through it, how he surpassed it,".

Are you excited to relive the magic of Om Puri on screen again?
