Published

Vaani Kapoor, who will be seen opposite Akshay Kumar in ‘Bell Bottom’, revealed she has been bowled over by him as he can pull off any role, any genre with the utmost ease. Vaani aid, “Akshay sir is a superstar in every possible way. He can pull off action, comedy, romance, thriller, and be the best in everything. Akshay Kumar can ace any genre! He is so talented and experienced and one can only observe and learn from him all the time. For me, it was a sheer joy to share screen space with him and work with him at least once in my life. The experience has been so lovely. He couldn’t have been more kind and wonderful. He is is very friendly on sets. I usually go back to my hotel room and not interact too much as I like being in my own space but he ensured that we all sit together and have lunches/dinners and get to know each other and be very involved like a close-knit family. I cherish this a lot because we were like a family on ‘Bellbottom’.” —Correspondent

Jared Leto kicks off Golden Globes with tousled hair, cable knit sweater

Published

By

Washington [US], March 1 (ANI): Even with the Golden Globes taking place virtually this year, celebrities are treating their fans with stunning pictures of them dressed to the nines. But actor Jared Leto’s hair might be the early style MVP of the 2021 Golden Globes.
The actor showed off his signature, ombre, chest-length strands and debuted a ’70s-inspired mustache in an Instagram selfie with the caption, “Just because we’re doing the #GoldenGlobes from home this year doesn’t mean I couldn’t get all dressed up for the camera. Don’t miss the show TONIGHT at 8pm ET/5pm PT on NBC. @goldenglobes.”

In the snap, Leto looks handsome in a navy cable knit turtleneck, posing with his arms crossed and flashing his best ‘blue steel’ face for the camera.
Leto is up against Sacha Baron Cohen (The Trial of the Chicago 7), Daniel Kaluuya (Judas and the Black Messiah), Bill Murray (On the Rocks), and Leslie Odom Jr. (One Night in Miami) for best-supporting actor in a motion picture.
“It’s a classic thriller with a surprise ending that’s filled with suspense and mystery. I think people will have a lot of fun watching Little Things. It takes you on a ride,” Leto told People magazine of the film, in which he plays a suspected serial killer, in December.
“Working with two Oscar winners was a dream. Denzel Washington is my Brando. He’s an absolute legend and a force of nature. Rami is remarkable. One of my favorite actors around and both were an absolute pleasure,” he added.
The 78th Golden Globe Awards is taking place nearly two months later than normal, due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on cinema and television.
This is the first bi-coastal ceremony, with Tina Fey hosting from the Rainbow Room in New York City, and Amy Poehler hosting from The Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills, California.
The nominees for Golden Globes were announced on February 3 and Jane Fonda and Norman Lear were announced as the recipients of the Cecil B. DeMille Award and the Carol Burnett Award, respectively.
Netflix dominated the nominations with a total of 42 mentions, including a nomination for the leading film ‘Mank’ and a nomination for leading television show ‘The Crown’.
‘Mank’ and ‘The Crown’ have received a total of six nominations each. Canadian sitcom ‘Schitt’s Creek’ has been nominated in five Golden Globe categories, including best TV musical or comedy series. (ANI)

MAHARASHTRA MINISTER QUITS, BJP ALLEGES HE’S LINKED TO TIKTOK STAR’S SUICIDE CASE

The Bharatiya Janata Party had demanded Forest Minister Sanjay Rathod’s resignation, even as he denied anything to do with 23-year-old Pooja Chavan’s death.

Amid the demand for the ouster of Maharashtra Forest Minister Sanjay Rathod over his name being linked to the death of a 23-year-old woman, the Shiv Sena leader on Sunday tendered his resignation from the post.

“I’ve given my resignation to CM Uddhav Thackeray. The way opposition is warning that they won’t allow Assembly session to function, I’ve distanced myself from it. I want a fair probe in case (in connection with the death of a woman in Pune earlier this month),” Rathod told reporters.

Earlier, the Opposition, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), had demanded Rathod’s resignation, even as the minister has denied that he had anything to do with her death.

The 23-year-old woman had died after falling from a building on 8 February, and Pune Police had said that they were probing the suicide angle. Some audio clips had gone viral after her death. However, soon after, many audio tapes allegedly linked to TikTok star Pooja Chavan’s death, alluding to the involvement of the state minister, went viral on social media. In one such audio clip, one person is heard making some suggestions to suppress a case. The person also issued instructions in Marathi to take possession of laptops and mobiles phones and the ‘issue’ should not be escalated.

Responding to the Opposition’s demand of a case against the minister, Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray on Sunday said an FIR (First Information Report) can’t be registered before investigation.

“Our job is to behave properly and just. But politics has been dirty for the past few days. Investigation has to happen, and we believe it should be fair. But during investigation, destroying someone should not be the aim,” he said at a press conference.

Further, some social media posts claimed that Pooja Chavan was in a relationship with the Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Rathod. In Rathod’s defence, Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut earlier on Sunday said that Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray will not take any decision under pressure. “Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray will not take any decision under pressure. To keep anyone in the cabinet or not is the CM’s prerogative,” Raut said.

The Rajya Sabha member also accused Maharashtra Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari of indulging in politics. The BJP has already announced that it would not let the budget session of the state legislature run smoothly if Rathod does not step down before March 1. The session is scheduled to start from Monday.

The BJP had been demanding his resignation from the post. “Minister with serious allegations in Pooja Chavan suicide case should resign! The BJP protested against this by burning a statue of Sanjay Rathore in Beed district,” BJP Maharashtra tweeted last week.

Former Maharashtra chief minister Devendra Fadnavis had also hit out at the state government over the death. “There is ample evidence against Sanjay Rathod but nothing is happening. If media reports had not come out, nothing would have happened. Are we heading towards a banana republic? The police are under pressure. First, there has to be an investigation on the police itself,” he said last week.
