At his Bandra home, Gulzar unveiled the poster of `8 AM Metro` for which he has contributed six of his poems
Veteran lyricist and filmmaker Gulzar launched the official poster of actors Gulshan Devaiah and Saiyami Kher*s upcoming movie, 8 AM Metro. Directed by Raj R, the film is set to be released in theatres on May 19. At his Bandra home, Gulzar unveiled the poster of the film for which he has contributed six of his poems. “It*s a story of two strangers who inadvertently bump into each other in the metro, and strike up an unlikely friendship. In the process, they find themselves, and each other. I can*t thank Gulzar saab enough for this magnanimous gesture and feel a deep sense of gratitude towards the legend,” said Raj.
Actor-turned-politician Hema Malini has found herself at the receiving end of criticism for her latest tweet on the Bihu festival. While wishing her followers, Malini made a faux pas by calling Bihu the New Year for Bihar. “It is the harvest season now. Tamizh Puthandu (New year), Baisakhi (Punjab), Bihu (Bihar) and Pohela Baisakh or Naba Barsha (Bengal) are some of the festivals celebrated. Wish you all a wonderful festival month (sic),” Malini tweeted. Eagle-eyed netizens pointed out the mistake and wrote, “Bihu is from Assam not Bihar.” Another user shared, “You are absolutely wrong, madam.” The actor eventually apologised.

Only days ahead of her industry debut, Shweta Tiwari*s daughter Palak has already been spilling the beans about her colleagues, and raising eyebrows in the process. Tiwari, who features in Salman Khan*s upcoming film, had said in an interview that he has a “rule” on his film set that relates to how female actors should dress. Khan, she had said, wanted “all the girls [to] be covered, like good proper girls”. Needless to say, it sparked several reactions on social media, compelling Tiwari to clear the air. Now, Tiwari has reportedly stated that her comments have been misrepresented, and all that she was attempting to say was that she had decided to dress up in a certain way in front of those she has grown up idolising.
