Why Vir Das is urging celebs not to post videos of Covid test

Published

on

MUMBAI: Comedian-actor Vir Das feels celebrities should not post videos on social media that show them undergoing Covid-19 tests. Taking to Instagram, Vir Das requested celebrities to understand the struggles of people who conduct Covid-19 tests. “Celebrities… please stop posting videos of your Covid tests. From the collection to the test, you are literally doing none of the work. The fact you tilted your head back 30 degrees and managed not to sneeze is not engaging content,” he wrote. Vir Das urged: “Been seeing these videos for months now. Hear me out please. There’s someone drenched in a full PPE kit one foot away from you who does this 30 times a day, door to door. You’re not the one struggling. The test sucks for them more.”

Los Angeles: Singer Taylor Swift won Artist of the Year award for the third year in a row at the American Music Awards, but had to skip the ceremony.

In 2019, Swift expressed anger over her former record label, Big Machine Label Group, selling her master recordings to Scooter Braun, who is the manager of singers like Justin Bieber and Ariana Grande. So, she was busy re-recording the albums she made with the label, on November 22, the night of the AMAs, reports eonline.com.

“Thank you so much for this. This is a fan-voted award, which means so much to me. You guys have been beyond wonderful all the years of my career, but especially this one, when we’ve been so far apart, we haven’t been able to see each other in concert, but I still feel really connected to you through the music,” she shared. Swift added: “The reason I’m not there tonight is I’m actually re-recording of all my old music, in the studio where we originally recorded it so it’s been amazing, and I can’t wait for you to hear it. Have a great night. I love you so much.”

Sanjana to star opposite Aditya in ‘Om’

Published

on

Actress Sanjana Sanghi, who starred opposite Sushant Singh Rajput in Dil Bechara, is set to join actor Aditya Roy Kapur in the upcoming action film, OM: The Battle Within.

“Getting to delve into the action genre so early on, is something I view as an absolute honour and have immense gratitude for to my producers and my director Kapil (Verma) for the potential they have seen in me being able to pull off such a part in our film,” Sanjana said. “After exploring many scripts and possibilities for a while, OM felt just right since it was the spectrum jump I was looking for in terms of throwing myself into an entirely unchartered territory of a big commercial actioner, being executed in a never-seen-before way that is going to present me with new challenges,” she added.

Talking about her character, she said: “My character Kavya is a girl I know each of us young girls in India aspires to be. She is confident, extremely hard-working and sharp, empathetic, brave and a crucial tenet of our film.”

The makers hope to complete the film by March next year.

Bhumi’s ‘Durgavati’ is now named ‘Durgamati: The Myth’

Published

on

The title of horror film Durgavati, which is presented by Akshay Kumar, has now been changed to Durgamati: The Myth. On Monday, Akshay unveiled the new title of the film with a poster. Starring Bhumi Pednekar, the film is set for an OTT release on 11 December this year. Bhumi shared the poster too, and wrote in Hindi: “Aa rahi hai… Durgamati (Durgamati is coming).”

In the poster, Bhumi is seen looking through the mirror. She is seen bruised, with her bindi partially rubbed off. She seems in a vengeful mood. The poster comes with an eerie touch as the mirror seems to be in a dilapidated ‘haveli’.

While no official reason has yet been given for the change in title, this is the second film in recent months to see a name change. A few weeks ago, the Akshay Kumar-starrer Laxmmi Bomb was renamed Laxmii on the censor board’s suggestion after a section of people said the original name of the film insulted Goddess Laxmi and Hinduism. Durgamati also stars Arshad Warsi, Jisshu Sengupta, Mahie Gill and Karan Kapadia. Directed by G. Ashok, the horror-thriller is the Hindi remake of Telugu movie Bhaagamathie (2018). It follows the story of an IAS officer, played by Bhumi, who is a victim of a major conspiracy involving powerful forces. She is imprisoned in a haunted house while being interrogated in a corruption case.
