Singh also cleared the speculations over his rift with Shah Rukh Khan and said that he has a great relationship with SRK.

Yo Yo has previously acted in Himesh Reshammiya’s ‘The Xpose,’ but ‘ Zorawar’ will mark his debut as a lead actor. (ANI)

We can’t rely only on movies for societal change: Kalki

News4u-Entertainment Desk- Bollywood actress Kalki Koechlin has opined that movies cannot be solely held responsible for bringing about a change in the society.

The ‘Margarita With A Straw’ actress, who was present at the launch of a youth-led program ‘ Campus Ambassador Program; Making Delhi City Safer,’ said that the films can take the society to a better and safer place, but cannot do it all alone.

“There are movies, which are artistic. Such movies have the capacity to bring about a change, but there are movies, which are completely commercial and made for people’s leisure time, which is not at all wrong to have. So, I don’t think that the motive or the responsibility of taking the society to a better and safer place should be only on the shoulders of the film makers or movies,” said Kalki to ANI.

On the occasion of the 100th International Women’s Day, PVR Nest along with Frame Her Right Campaign; and SafetiPin, the country’s only audit based safety application, launched the initiative, which aims at empowering youth to have an active role in developing safer cities.

Apart from Kalki Koechlin, the event saw the presence of H.E. Mr. Richard Verma, the US Ambassador to India and H.E. Mr. Nadir Patel, Canadian High Commissioner to India along with Mr. Ajay Bijli- Chairman & Managing Director- PVR Limited. (ANI)

Mariah Carey`s engagement ring `too heavy` for her

News4u-Entertainment Desk- Mariah Carey, who recently got engaged to her boyfriend James Packer, opened up about her massive 35-carat engagement ring.

The 45-year-old songstress said in a recent interview that her engagement ring is so heavy that she can’t even lift her arm, reports News.com.au.

Further, talking about how Packer proposed to her, Carey said that it was very romantic and it gets more romantic by the day.

The ring is reportedly more than twice the weight of the 17-carat emerald-cut pink diamond Carey received from ex-husband Nick Cannon in 2008.

Carey also said that she has not taken any decisions on their wedding, but she wants it to happen somewhat soon.

The ‘Without You’ hit-maker added that they are not doing a big wedding because Packer has had two big weddings and she has had one herself, so they would rather make it beautiful, but humble.

This will be the third marriage for Carey, who was also previously married to music executive Tommy Mottola. Packer has three young children with his former wife Erica Baxter and was previously married to Jodhi Meares. (ANI)

Mastizaade (Movie Review)

News4u-Entertainment Desk- Sex addicts, Sunny Kele (Tusshar) and Aditya Chotia (Vir Das) cannot get ‘enough of it’. When the two of them fall for identical twins, Lily and Laila Lele, their lives become an adventure.

Right away one should tell you that Mastizaade is the result of a fractured script. Word in the trade circles is that this so-called adult comedy was reportedly assaulted by the CBFC! So what you see, in the current running time of less than two hours, is a disjointed mishmash of some stupid sex jokes, tacky in-house product placement clips, Sunny Leone’s tasteful skin show and two blundering idiots - Tusshar and Vir. Both actors should have realised that they have committed professional hara-kiri by being in here.

Milap Zaveri, who is credited as the writer-director here, is the guy who has written at least half-way funny comedies like Grand Masti, etc. and one would have certainly imagined that he would have saved a page for his own directorial venture. But no! Zaveri takes his brain-dead audience for granted and unmindfully dishes out trite, leaving you angry and anguished.

Honestly, this film looks like a better version of last week’s Kyaa Kool Hain Hum 3 because it has Sunny instead of Mandana Karimi. Otherwise, it is just as blah. No attempt is made at a screenplay; no one attempts to act either.

The lead players go from Mumbai to Pattaya, chasing one another in various states of dress and undress and mouth double-meaning dialogue. When they run out of those, they substitute it with crass hand gestures to keep proceedings moving on screen. Everything from a donkey’s b**** to a horse’s backside is used for tasteless jokes. Incidentally, the hero of this film is the humble banana! People are named after it, eating it or gesticulating with it.

Every 20 minutes, a song breaks. Sunny, who is on familiar territory, looks gorgeous as she parades in an assortment of bikinis. She has also mastered the Bollywood song-dance routine and gracefully sashays to Rom Rom Romantic and Hor Nach. Bollywood believes that if you have Sunny in a film, you do not need a script.Courtesy toi…

Saala Khadoos (Movie Review)

News4u-Entertainment Desk- Adi Tomar (Madhavan) is bitter because his dream to win the boxing gold for India was thwarted by his devious coach Dev Khatri (Zakir) who spiked his gloves during an all-important match. So when he spots talent in a Chennai fisher-woman Madhi(Ritika Singh) he wants to see his dream fulfilled through his ward.

Like Mary Kom, Saala Khadoos is a heartfelt attempt at putting the spotlight on India’s women boxers. As it follows the life of siblings, Laxmi (Mumtaz Sorcar) and Madhi, (both trained boxers) brought up in poverty, but with their sights set on boxing, the film sheds light on many issues. Namely, the lack of sporting infrastructure and the corrupt selectors who subject the women athletes to sexual humiliation are raw nerves it touches on. A line by a power-drunk coach to a promising pupil, that goes— ‘If you wish to rise in life, you have to go down first (pun intended)’ is discomforting.

The film had great potential but it plays safe by taking the familiar route of the underdog becoming the champion. You know from the time when Adi picks up a wild child off the street and she over dramatically resists, that he will pursue her to follow his dream. Director Sudha Kongara also deftly weaves in an attraction between the amateur boxer and her khadoos coach, a man almost double her age.

Both Adi and Madhi are rebels. But their fights ( especially the ones outside the boxing ring) appear forced and out of sync. But then again, the film keeps you engaged till the proud-India bout in the climax because of the convincing performances. Madhavan is good as the cynical coach who wants nothing more than to earn his stripes. Ritika is raw yet manages a knockout performance. Nasser, Mumtaz and Zakir lend good support. Courtesy toi…

Nawazuddin Siddiqui on assault case: It was planned against me

News4u-Entertainment Desk- Breaking silence over the FIR registered against him for allegedly assaulting a woman over a parking dispute, Bollywood actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui said that the whole incident was planned against him.

“I just want to say that it was an unfortunate incident and this was all planned against me,” the 41-year-old actor told the media here.

In her complaint, the woman pointed out that the ‘ Manjhi: The Mountain Man’ star had refused to accept a notice sent earlier by the society’s chairman and secretary to the members over parking space-related complaints. In this regard, the ‘ Badlapur’ actor said that he never saw the complainant in the society before.

“I don’t know who this complainant Heena Sheikh is, I have never seen her in the society,” he said, adding “If you carefully look at the notice they (complainants) had shown, it wasn’t signed by any of the society’s members.”

According to media reports, Siddiqui was served a notice by his housing society authorities. He was asked not to park his car at the place, which is given for the two-wheeler parking.

A heated argument began when the 24-year-old woman reportedly found Siddiqui’s car at the two wheeler parking and filed a complaint against the actor.

The police quoted the complainant as saying that during the argument, the actor allegedly slapped her. (ANI)
