Nationalism should be in Cinema Not in Cinema Halls: Vidya Balan


Actress Vidya Balan, who is currently basking in the glory of the success of her last released film Mission Mangal, says that nationalism should be there in cinema but “not in the cinema halls.” In an interview with a news agency, Vidya Balan said: “It (nationalism) should be there in the cinema and not in cinema halls. There are so many things that Indians can be proud of but we don’t necessarily do that. When we travel across the globe, you realise India is so rich in colour, heritage, natural beauty… So we need to celebrate our nation.”
Further in her interview, Vidya Balan said that science and religion can “co-exist” and that they don’t have to be “divorced.” Vidya, who is playing the role of a religious ISRO scientist in Mission Mangal, said: “I think there is a problem with the way religion is being interpreted today. I know a lot of people who are shying away from calling themselves ‘religious’ and I am one of them… ‘Religious’ has become or obtained a negative connotation because being religious has become synonymous with being intolerant. But they don’t have to be divorced”
Vidya Balan’s film Misson Mangal is based on Indian Space Research Organisation’s (ISRO) successful Mars Orbiter Mission in 2013. The film also features Akshay Kumar, Sonakshi Sinha, Taapsee Pannu, Kirti Kulhari, Nithya Menen and Sharman Joshi in main roles.

Karan Johar not to ‘Apologise’ for his Films

Karan Johar has said that Bollywood has evolved with time, which means its time for him to change too: “But somewhere down the line, cinema’s syntax changed and I have to kind of adapt to that, and make sure that my characters are more rooted and real, so that they don’t seem so flashy anymore,”.

Talking about being criticised for his “larger-than-life” films, Karan told the media: “I am accused of affluenza but, having said that, I won’t apologize for the films that I have made, although I think I have to tweak the level of affluenza in future.”

Making a direct reference to Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, in which Ranbir Kapoor featured as a wealthy family scion, KJo said: “When you talk about my films and affluenza, then that’s been criticism. Everyone says I make films about first world problems. It is said that if Ranbir Kapoor flies a private plane in a film, then his heart shouldn’t be broken at all. Apparently, if you are wealthy you are not allowed to feel pain.”

Karan Johar’s name also often features in Bollywood’s ongoing debate over nepotism. The filmmaker has launched star kids like Alia Bhatt, Varun Dhawan, Janhvi Kapoor, Ishaan Khatter and more recently Ananya Panday in Bollywood. Meanwhile, his most-awaited directorial project is Takht, which stars Anil Kapoor, Kareena Kapoor, Alia Bhatt, Ranveer Singh, Bhumi Pednekar and Vicky Kaushal.

Akshay Kumar’s Mission Mangal Box earn good amount

Akshay Kumar’s film Mission Mangal, which also stars Vidya Balan, Tapsee Pannu, Sonakshi Sinha, Kirti Kulhari and Nithya Menen in lead roles, remains strong at the box office as it collected over Rs. 100 crore in a week, stated a report in Box Office India.

The film, which released on Independence Day, has taken the box office by storm as it has now entered the 100 crore club. With the latest earnings, the overall collections so far have reached over Rs. 105 crore. Mission Mangal surpassed films like Gully Boy and Super 30 to become the fifth Bollywood film of 2019 with highest Monday collections, reported Box Office India.

Mission Mangal is based on the Mars Orbiter Mission by the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO). It fictionalises the events leading up to the successful launch of Mangalyaan, which has been orbiting Mars since 2014.

Directed by Jagan Shakti, the film also features Sharman Joshi, Dalip Tahil, Sanjay Kapoor, H G Dattatreya, Purab Kohli and Vikram Gokhale.

Amitabh Bachchan says 75 percent of his liver is gone

Megastar Amitabh Bachchan often shares his health issues with the public, and this time he admitted that 75 percent of his liver is gone.
“I keep quoting my personal example all the time and try and propagate the idea of getting yourself detected and I don’t mind saying this publicly I am a tuberculosis survivor, Hepatitis B survivor… Bad blood infusion went in and 75 percent of my liver is gone but because I was able to detect it even after a period of 20 years, when 75 percent of my liver is gone… I am still surviving on 25 percent,” Big B said at NDTV’s Swasth India launch.

The 76-year-old, who has been associated with various health campaigns like Polio, Hepatitis B, Tuberculosis and diabetes, urged people to get tested and diagnosed.

“Then there is a cure. Even with Tuberculosis… I did not know for almost 8 years I was suffering from Tuberculosis. I keep saying that with immodesty if it can happen to me (it can happen) to anyone. Therefore if you are not willing to get yourself tested then you would never find out and there’s never going to be a cure for it,” he said.
