PA refuses Israel offer of talks with no settlement halt

News4u-News Desk-The Palestinian Authority has refused a recent Israeli proposal to restart peace talks without a complete freeze of settlement activity, a Palestinian official said.
“Israel offered through a mediator from the American administration to resume negotiations” but the PA declined, the official said on condition of anonymity.
“The reason for the refusal is that the Palestinian Authority demands first of all a stop to settlements in the West Bank and east Jerusalem,” he said.
As part of the proposal, he added, Israel offered to free 400 Palestinian prisoners, extend Palestinian control over parts of the occupied West Bank and remove more checkpoints in the territory.
The Palestinian Authority under the leadership of president Mahmud Abbas has repeatedly said that all Israeli settlement activity must halt before the resumption of peace negotiations that were suspended during the Gaza war at the turn of the year.
Israel has so far refused a complete freeze, offering instead a partial and limited ease on construction.

Amitabh Bachchan’s bald look in Balki’s ‘Pa’

 

News4u-Entertainment Desk-With summer at its peak, everyone almost goes for a crew cut or maybe a completely tonsured look. But one visit to the sets of Pa has a totally different story to tell and see. Everyone’s ground fell apart when realised that the fully tonsured man (which also included his eyebrows!) was none other than Amitabh Bachchan…yes…you heard it right…the Legendary Amitabh Bachchan. And this look of his is not in tune with the summer and its heat. Instead this is how he will look like in his forthcoming film Pa which stars him alongwith beta Abhishek and Vidya Balan.

‘Pa’ is being directed by the ad whiz R. Balakrishnan (popularly known as ‘Balki’) and who had earlier directed the Big B-Tabu starrer ‘Cheeni Kum’. Even though every minute detail of this film is being kept under strict wraps, rumors have it that the film is about a child who ages much faster than any normal child would do. If you thought that the adjoining picture of Big B took the daylights out of you, then, let us tell you that the real surprise of the film lies in the fact that Amitabh Bachchan plays Abhishek Bachchan and Vidya Balan’s son in the film.

News also has it that the shoot has been carried out swiftly in locations of Delhi, whereby, a team of highly qualified make up experts worked on Big B’s look for a whopping 6 hours at a stretch! And the results are for everyone to see.

Our repeated attempts to establish contact with Balki, the man of the moment, proved futile.

All in all, this one surely seems to be one of Big B’s highly anticipated films that everyone is going to look forward to this year.

Abhishek Bachchan to play Amitabh’s father in ‘Pa’

News4u-Entertainment Desk-In what may be a role reversal in reel life, actor Abhishek Bachchan is all set to play Amitabh Bachchan’s father in R Balki’s upcoming film ‘Pa’, ‘Femalefirst’ reported.

The details about the film are being kept under wraps but Big B has already hinted in his blog that his look will be a surprise.

“In ‘Pa’ Amitabh plays the alienated and slightly retarded son of Abhishek, and his look has been specially created by make-up men flown in from London,” a source told the website.

The mega star had earlier said that he spends five hours a day in make-up for his role in the film but there is not much known about his character or storyline of the film.

However, some reports suggest that the superstar will be seen without his signature French beard in the film.

The project is being kept a secret, with no-one from outside the unit being allowed on set, and those who are working on the production are not permitted to speak about the film to the media.

This will be Bachchan’s second project with Balki, who had earlier given the actor a make-over in ‘Cheeni-Kum’. Bachchan had played quirky chef, who falls for a woman half his age in the film.
