“Let’s begin the bulletin with news on the trailer for Monica, O My Darling. Directed by Vasan Bala, the dark comedy-drama features Rajkummar Rao, Radhika Apte, Huma Qureshi and Sikander Kher in the lead roles.
The trailer promises a deliciously dark comedy, with the vibes of Andhadhun. Without giving away much, it lets us know that Rajkummar Rao is caught in Huma Qureshi’s insidious web and is being blackmailed. Sikander Kher offers him the last resort: murder. We see images of a body being jostled around, with some snarky humour and Radhika Apte entering the scene as a police officer for the case.
Written by Yogesh Chandekar, Monica O My Darling will release exclusively on Netflix on November 11.”
“Filmmaker Sooraj Barjatya says he is set to venture into the digital space soon with at least three web series under development at his family banner Rajshri Productions.
These projects will focus on family-friendly entertainment, a genre championed by the production house through films such as Nadiya Ke Paar, Saaransh, and Salman Khan-starrers Hum Aapke Hain Kaun and Hum Saath Saath Hain.
Sooraj Barjatya said he was inundated with many offers from leading streamers during the coronavirus pandemic to explore the digital medium. Talking to PTI, he said, ”We have been offered to make Rajshri kind of stories by all platforms. After the pandemic, families have come together. I am surprised and happy. We are in the process of starting the three-four series soon.”””
“Phone Bhoot actor Katrina Kaif celebrated Halloween 2022 by dressing up as Harley Quinn. Katrina took to her Instagram handle and posted new pictures in her colourful avatar. Harley Quinn is a character who appears in DC films and is portrayed by Robbie Margot.
Katrina was close to living up to Quinn’s famous quote, “We’re bad guys, it’s what we do,” but her sweet smile gave it away. Fans flooded the post’s comment section with red hearts and fire emoticons.
Amitabh Bachchan revealed on his blog that the Sunday fan gatherings at his residence, Jalsa, have become less enthusiastic, and the number of people assembling outside his home has also decreased. He also explained the importance these gatherings, often termed ‘darshan’ by his legion of fans has for him. He said he always takes off his shoes before meeting his fans, describing it as a “devotion” for him to interact with his well-wishers.
He wrote, “I do observe though that the numbers are in lesser magnitude and the enthusiasm has lessened and the screams of joy now transferred to the mobile camera .. and that is more evident now an indication that time has moved on and nothing lasts forever.””
“Actor Janhvi Kapoor says playing a character who is trapped in a freezer for hours for almost a month in her upcoming film Mili took a toll not only on her body but also her mind.
The process of shooting the Mathukutty Xavier directorial was so gruelling that she would have nightmares of being shut in a cold, dark space. She told PTI, “I remember this film taking a genuine toll on my mental health because I would come back home after wrapping up the shoot and I would go to sleep and dream that I was still in the freezer. I fell ill and I was on severe painkillers for two three days and even the director was unwell.”””
“Tiger Shroff has emerged as one of the foremost action stars in Bollywood. Following his action-packed roles, the actor has carved out a niche for himself in the industry. While on-screen, Tiger’s battles with goons and crashing through glass walls seem cool, but sometimes the aftermath has Tiger covered in bruises.
He shared one such incident with his fans on Instagram and revealed that he ended up breaking his foot. Sharing a high-octane video, Tiger wrote, “Broke my foot breaking a concrete washbasin because I was fired up and I thought I was stronger than I was. But in my defence, the basin broke too.”
Tiger Shroff was recently seen in the film Heropanti 2. “
“Actor-producer Priyanka Chopra Jonas says she is looking forward to her first trip to India in almost three years since the coronavirus pandemic broke out. The actor, who is now based out of Los Angeles, took to Instagram to share the update. Priyanka wrote on her Instagram stories along with a picture of her boarding pass, “Finally…going home. After almost 3 years,”
This tour also marks her daughter Malti Marie Jonas’ first visit to the country. Priyanka and her husband, American singer Nick Jonas, announced in January that they have become parents through surrogacy.”
Cricketer Virat Kohli and his wife Anushka Sharma posted angry notes as his privacy was breached by a fan who entered his hotel room and posted a video of the bedroom and showcased his belongings.
An enraged Kohli shared the video on Monday morning and wrote, “I understand that fans get very happy and excited seeing their favourite players and get excited to meet them and I’ve always appreciated that. But this video here is appalling and it’s made me feel very paranoid about my privacy. If I cannot have privacy in my hotel room, then where can I expect any personal space at all?? I’m NOT okay with this kind of fanaticism and absolute invasion of privacy.”””
