BECOMING SHERSHAAH WAS A DREAM COME TRUE MOMENT: SIDHARTH

Published

on

MUMBAI: Ahead of the release of ‘Shershaah’, actor Sidharth Malhotra opened up about his experience of working on the war drama. “For me becoming Shershaah was like a dream come true moment… I think the biggest obstacles all of us face is fear, and Capt. Vikram Batra broke that and said it with style and confidence by saying ‘Yeh Dil Maange More, sir’,” Sidharth said in the film’s BTS video. Directed by Vishnu Varadhan, ‘Shershaah’ is based on the life of Param Vir Chakra awardee Captain Vikram Batra, who laid down his life in the service of the nation while recapturing Indian territories from Pakistani intruders during the Kargil War in 1999. Actor Kiara Advani, who is also a part of the upcoming film, recalled how Capt Vikram Batra’s parents were keen for Sidharth to play their son’s character. Jointly produced by Dharma Productions and Kaash Entertainment, ‘Shershaah’ will stream on Amazon Prime Video on 12 August 2021.

MATT DAMON SAYS HE NEVER USED ‘F-SLUR’

Published

on

WASHINGTON: Hollywood star Matt Damon recently clarified the controversial remarks he made about “retiring” his use of the homophobic ‘F-slur’. In a statement obtained by People magazine on Monday, the ‘Ford v Ferrari’ actor insisted that “I have never called anyone ‘f–t’ in my personal life,” and that “I do not use slurs of any kind.” Just over the weekend, Damon’s interview with the UK’s Sunday Times caused a stir when he revealed that he was recently given a lesson by one of his daughters about why using the “f-word for homosexuals” is “dangerous.”

He told the outlet that he had “made a joke, months ago, and got a treatise from my daughter”. “She left the table. I said, ‘Come on, that’s a joke! I say it in the movie Stuck on You!’” Damon said in the interview. “She went to her room and wrote a very long, beautiful treatise on how that word is dangerous. And I said, ‘I retire the f-slur!’ I understood,” he added.

The actor didn’t reveal which daughter he had the conversation with. The star shares daughters Stella, Gia, Isabella, and Alexia with wife Luciana Barroso. But in his statement on Monday, he said, “this conversation with my daughter was not a personal awakening.”

He went on to detail the conversation he said he had with his daughter. “During a recent interview, I recalled a discussion I had with my daughter where I attempted to contextualise for her the progress that has been made—though by no means completed—since I was growing up in Boston and, as a child, heard the word ‘f–’ used on the street before I knew what it even referred to,” the actor said. “I explained that that word was used constantly and casually and was even a line of dialogue in a movie of mine [Stuck on You!] as recently as 2003. She in turn expressed incredulity that there could ever have been a time where that word was used unthinkingly,” he added. Damon said he was proud of his daughter. ­
