The ‘Bob Biswas’ look of Abhishek, Chitrangda revealed

Published

on

Abhishek Bachchan is currently shooting for his upcoming film ‘Bob Biswas’ in Kolkata, and on-location photos of the actor in action went viral on Thursday. Facebook, Instagram and Twitter are flooded with photographs of Abhishek’s look as the titular ‘Bob Biswas’, which have reportedly been leaked from the film set. His co-star Chitrangda Singh has also been clicked on the set of the film. In one photo, the actress can be seen wearing a red frock, wristwatch on her left hand and a pair of grey-blue sneakers. In another photo, she wears a blue saree with a brown short-sleeved blouse, carrying an off-white shawl and a black vanity bag. ‘Bob Biswas’ is a spin-off from the 2012 hit, ‘Kahaani’ starring Vidya Balan. ‘Bob Biswas’ marks the directorial debut of Diya Annapurna Ghosh.  In the spin-off, Abhishek’s look has been created keeping in mind that of noted Bengali cinema actor Saswata Chatterjee who had played the character of the serial killer Bob Biswas in Kahaani. From what we see in the viral photographs from Kolkata, Abhishek has been given a beefed-up look for the role. His hairstyle is similar to Saswata Chatterjee’s, with a bald patch. He also wears a pair of old-fashioned glasses. The actor is dressed up in blue and black checked full shirt and grey trousers, with black shoes and belt.

Washington [US], March 1 (ANI): American drama film ‘Nomadland’ has won the Golden Globen 2021 award for Best Motion Picture – Drama.
‘Nomadland’ is a 2020 American drama film directed, written, and edited by Chloe Zhao. It stars Frances McDormand as a woman who leaves home to travel around the American West.
The film is based on the 2017 non-fiction book ‘Nomadland: Surviving America’ in the Twenty-First Century by Jessica Bruder.
During the ceremony, Chloe Zhao also took home the Golden Globe for best director for ‘Nomadland’, making her the second woman ever to win for helming, and the first woman of colour to win in the category.
Zhao was up against Emerald Fennell (Promising Young Woman), Regina King (One Night in Miami), David Fincher (Mank), and Aaron Sorkin (The Trial of the Chicago 7).
‘Nomadland’ received four nominations, including Zhao for best screenplay, an actress in a drama for McDormand, and best picture drama. Zhao had adapted it from Jessica Bruder’s 2017 nonfiction book of the same name.
Zhao is only the second woman to win a Golden Globe for director: Barbra Streisand won in 1984 for ‘Yentl’. Zhao is also the first director of Asian descent to win a Globe since Ang Lee won for 2005’s ‘Brokeback Mountain’. Lee also won for 2000’s ‘Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon’.
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 co-hosting from the Rainbow Room in New York City, and Amy Poehler co-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. (ANI)

Washington [US], March 1 (ANI): Actor-singer Andra Day took home the Golden Globe for best actress in a motion picture (drama), for her incredible performance in the Hulu film ‘The United States vs. Billie Holiday’.
Day made history at this year’s Golden Globes as she became the only second Black woman ever to win this award after Whoopi Goldberg did 35 years ago for ‘The Color Purple’, reported Variety.
Day was nominated with Viola Davis (Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom), Vanessa Kirby (Pieces of a Woman), Frances McDormand (Nomadland), and Carey Mulligan (Promising Young Woman).
In her acceptance speech surrounded by her family and friends, Day thanked “the amazing transformative dynamic Billie Holiday, who just just transformed me with this role and with her presence and with her spirit.”
This marks Day’s first acting nomination and win at the Globes, and she is the first winner in this category for a movie that debuted on a streaming service. Day, who started her career as a Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter, was also nominated with Raphael Saadiq for best original song (Tigress and Tweed).
