Desi’s gussa reaches videsi turf
RRR recently bagged five awards at the Hollywood Critics Association awards, but it was NTR Jr’s absence that piqued curiosity. In the wake of criticism for inviting SS Rajamouli and Ram Charan, but not the latter’s co-actor, the organisation has cleared the air. “Dear RRR fans and supporters, We did invite NTRama Rao Jr to attend the #HCAFilmAwards, but he is shooting a new film in India. He will be receiving his awards from us shortly. Thank you for all your love and support,” it shared on social media.
Rooting for the wrong?
Raj and DK’s Farzi has earned acclaim from fans and critics, and now leading man Shahid Kapoor says he is glad to have been able to garner supporters for his grey character in the series. Kapoor’s Sunny is a talented painter who turns to currency counterfeiting to earn money. The series’ success, he says, gave him “a deep sense of satisfaction”. “It’s always challenging when you’re playing a guy who is not likeable or who’s not necessarily the guy you want to make friends with or go on a date with. It’s important for you to make them [audience] like him, even though as the show progresses, he’s not going to be very likeable due to the things that he does.”
Dulha cracks dad jokes
Sidharth Malhotra is evidently enjoying the joy that comes with being a new groom. The actor, who was caught by lensmen during a work commitment, wished to remind them of the fact that he is, well... married. When asked to pose ‘solo’, he responded stating, “Ab main solo raha nahin.” Malhotra’s acting chops have improved by leaps and bounds, as is evident in his recent commendable acts in Shershaah and Mission Majnu. But his comic skills still need to be refined, no? The actor, who will be seen in Indian Police Force and Yodha, tied the knot with Kiara Advani last month.

When watching the trailer of Mrs Chatterjee Vs Norway, Sagarika Bhattacharya, who inspired the film said, “It’s hard to put into words how it feels seeing my story being told.

It is important for people to see how immigrant parents are treated even today, as is evident from the story in Germany.” Rani Mukerji returns to the screen with this film, which portrays a woman’s struggle when her children are taken away from her.
