TV and film actor Alok Nath has been accused of sexual assault by writer-director Vinta Nanda. He will be seen sharing screen space with Bollywood star Ajay Devgn in the soon-to-be-released De De Pyaar De.
I am removing every Michael Jackson song from my electronic devices. It just does not seem right any more after what has come to light in Leaving Neverland. The four-hour documentary has literally been the last straw that has broken the back of this camel that was Michael Jackson’s fan.
Zoya Akhtar's Gully Boy, as the title indicates, is not just Murad and Safeena's story. It primarily preoccupies itself with the boy and his gully, Dharavi, his struggles, hardships, angst and the final release. And yet for them, at least for Safeena, it is her only story.
Kudos to Zoya Akhtar and Reema Kagti who didn't craft Alia Bhatt's character as just a demure young girl who enables the story of Gully Boy. The others who exude charisma on screen include Siddhant Chaturvedi, Amruta Subhash and Vijay Raaz.
