Dave Chappelle announces return of ‘Chappelle’s Show’ to Netflix

Washington [US], February 12 (ANI): American stand-up comedian, Dave Chappelle released a surprise clip from a stand-up performance on Thursday (local time) in which he revealed that ‘Chappelle’s Show’ is coming back to Netflix on February 12.
According to People magazine, towards the end of the roughly 10-minute-long video captioned “Redemption Song,” Chappelle wrapped it up by making the announcement and thanking Netflix Co-CEO Ted Sarandos for pulling ‘Chappelle’s Show’ at his request in November.
Chappelle said, “I asked you to stop watching the show and thank God almighty for you, you did. You made that show worthless because without your eyes it’s nothing. And when you stopped watching it, they called me. And I got my name back and I got my license back and I got my show back and they paid me millions of dollars. Thank you very much.”
He added, “And finally, after all these years, I can finally say to Comedy Central: It’s been a pleasure doing business with you.”
In the stand-up clip posted on Thursday (local time), the comedian also railed against people he said “rejoiced” in his COVID-19 diagnosis, as well as the Capitol rioters.
Last year in November, less than a month after the beloved sketch series debuted on Netflix, the streaming service removed ‘Chappelle’s Show’ from its catalogue at Dave’s request.
As per People magazine, the comedian, who has had a professional relationship with Netflix for the last four years, asked the streamer to pull the series due to a dispute with the channel and its parent company, ViacomCBS. Chappelle alleged that the initial contract he signed to produce ‘Chappelle’s Show’ has prevented him from receiving royalties for the series and allowed the company to license it without his consent.

Published

on

MUMBAI: The show Cartel is an action drama with its core set in a family. The show primarily revolves around The Angre family and four other Crime Lords based in the different areas of the city. The trailer starts showing us “The Family”, with us getting introduced to Rani Mai, played by the versatile Supriya Pathak.

Dressed in a nauvari saree, Rani Mai is fierce. We are then introduced to her three sons – Major Bhau, Madhu Bhau, and Abhay – played by Tanuj Virwani, Jeetendra Joshi, and Rithvik Dhanjani. When one character asks Major Bhau how he killed the soldier inside him, his reply – “Mara nahi hai wo, Pehle wo desh ke liye ladta tha, aur ab apni family ke liye” – we can’t help but whistle.

With a humongous cast of around 137 talented actors, this highly ambitious show is all set to enthral the audiences with its action-packed trailer. Produced by Balaji Telefilms, the show has a stellar cast comprising Supriya Pathak, Tanuj Virwani, Jitendra Joshi, Rithvik Dhanjani, Pranati Rai Prakash, Divya Agarwal, Girija Oak Godbole, Amey Wagh, Monica Dogra, Vikram Kochhar, Vibhav Roy, Tannishtha Chatterjee, Sanaya Pithawala, Mayur More, Mrinal Dutt, Krishna Kaul, Aditi Vasudev, Keval Dasani, Kannan Arunachalam, Sushrii Mishra amongst the 137 actors in the show.

The Daily Guardian spoke to Rithvik Dhanjani about the series Cartel and experience working on a character totally different from him in real life. Cartel is your first web series, how excited are you for it? I am on the 19th cloud. Finally the series is going to be out after almost three years of preparing for it. Excited for the series to see it come alive and hope the audience loves it too. Blood, sweat, heart and soul has gone in making the series and wish the audience reciprocates it with love.

What does your character look like in web series Cartel, any preparations made for the same? How relatable is it in real life? My character in the web series Cartel is Abhay Angre. Rithvik and Abhay are totally different from each other in real life. Abhay is maniac, a child , he is like a ticking bomb nobody would know what is he going to do in the show. It is a lot of preparation gone in making Abhay. My team who has been there with me during the making of the series and Abhay helped me in order to achieve the mannerism and accent of Abhay. I secretly recorded the conversation so that I could imitate and implement what he says to get my character of Abhay to perfection. I am very excited to play Abhay as I am not what he is and that is what is more exciting.

MUMBAI: Taapsee Pannu is devoting her complete focus to her first film, Blurr, which is being shot in Nainital as any first-time producer would. But, before heading to the high station, the actor met with Srijit Mukherji to discuss Shabaash Mithu’s future.

Pannu is said to have detailed her preparation and notes for the part she has been playing for the past year at length during the recent meeting. She’ll start shooting for the sports drama in early September when Blurr wraps.

According to the news, the biopic was supposed to start filming in April, but the second wave of the pandemic forced the team to put it on hold. Srijit is currently in Mumbai, where he is laying the groundwork for the big film. The film will begin shooting as soon as Taapsee returns to the city, followed by a worldwide release.
