Have you heard? Rishi Kapoor's words

Rishi Kapoor

Rishi Kapoor will be featured in the upcoming docu-series, 'The Romantics', which celebrates legendary filmmaker Yash Chopra, along with his production house’s impact on Indian pop-culture in the last 50 years. The late actor had closely collaborated with Chopra on films like Kabhi Kabhie, and Chandni. Kapoor will be seen speaking about his close relationship with Chopra, and what made their combination one of the most cherished director-actor duos in cinema.

More tricks

Mil Gaya, became a favourite among children, and features Hrithik as a superhero.

Well done!

Sharman Joshi chanced upon a great opportunity to promote his next, the Gujarati film, Congratulations. He joined hands with Aamir Khan and R Madhavan, and took fans on a walk down memory lane. Sporting matching red tracksuits, and featuring on a cricket pitch, they evoked nostalgia to make their pitch.

We wish to see again, #3idiots, (sic)” said another.

Our stories, their voices?

Writer-director Onir says streamers and production studios are yet to approach him for projects that explore gay or queer narratives that go beyond their acceptance in the community. As a result, the filmmaker — who is openly gay and an LGBTQiA rights activist — said films about the community often end up being presented through a cisgendered lens. “I always wonder what is preventing platforms or studios when they are reaching out to cisgendered filmmakers to tell our stories. How come no one comes to me? Are they threatened or do they think he is too gay? Have you ever heard someone say he is too straight? I find there is this silent homophobia,” he said in an interview.
