Jio Studios and Maddock Films are all set to bring back the magic of cinema to eagerly awaiting cine goers with their much-anticipated horror-comedy Roohi, releasing worldwide on 11 March, to celebrate cinemas finally getting the green signal to operate at 100% capacity.

After the massive success of Stree (2018), the team reunites to further build the cinematic universe in the family-friendly horror-comedy franchise with the much-anticipated Roohi.

The incredibly talented Rajkummar Rao is back with Janhvi Kapoor and Varun “Choocha” Sharma. The trailer of Roohi will be unveiled on Tuesday, 16 February. 

Roohi is directed by Hardik Mehta and written by Mrigdeep Singh Lamba, and its makers hope to pave the way for films slated for a theatrical release with the first major 1,500 screen plus pan-India release this year.

Speaking on behalf of Jio Studios, Jyoti Deshpande, president, Media & Entertainment, RIL, said, “We have always invested in great stories with amazing production values, visually and by way of sound, which is best experienced on the big screen to have that ‘paisa vasool wali feeling’. We owed it to our partners across the value chain, be it Maddock or the Cinema Exhibitors, to hold on to our fabulous film for this day and give it the grand release that it deserves and promise a complete entertainment experience to our audiences who have waited over a year for this. With Roohi, the magic of cinema is back… We promise to make you smile under your masks.”

Producer Dinesh Vijan, Maddock Films, said, “While Stree was a genre bending tale that gave audiences something never seen before, Roohi takes this vision a step further by offering the same brand of spine-chilling scares and quirky comedy.”

Washington [US], February 26 (ANI): Fans of American singer Bruno Mars and rapper Anderson .Paak have a reason to rejoice as the duo has announced on Thursday night that they have come together as a band, called ‘Silk Sonic’. The first taste of new music will be coming in one week.
The 35-year-old rapper took to Instagram and wrote enthusiastically, “We made an album! Y’all get the first song next Friday 3/5!! Rocket emojis and all that!!!”

The ‘Uptown Funk’ singer confirmed the news and added that the moniker in the accompanying art is, in fact, a band name. Though, they are not shy about also billing themselves separately.
“We locked in and made an album. The band’s called Silk Sonic. First song drops next Friday,” wrote Mars on Instagram.

According to Variety, although not mentioned in the messages, the artwork makes an additional promise of Bootsy Collins, the legendary Parliamentarian, as a ‘special guest host.’
Per the outlet, the two have hooked up before, not on record but as tour-mates when Paak opened for Mars on part of the ’24K Magic’ tour. The pair also put in separate appearances on the Chic album ‘It’s About Time’ three years ago.
Mars’ last album, 2016’s ’24K Magic,’ resulted in the star winning the triple crown at the 2018 Grammys, where besides album of the year he picked up record of the year for the title track and song of the year for ‘That’s What I Like.’
On the other hand, Paak released his last album more recently – ‘Ventura’ came out in April 2019 – but he has been rife with one-offs since then, too.
Variety reported that he has put out four non-album singles just in 2020 (including a ‘Trollz’ soundtrack collaboration with Justin Timberlake) appeared on a fifth (being a featured artist on Busta Rhymes’ ‘Yuuuu’). (ANI)

Washington [US], February 26 (ANI): American reality star Kylie Jenner on Thursday (local time) took a trip down memory lane and revealed the food she used to crave for during labor with daughter Stormi.
The makeup mogul hopped on to her Instagram stories on Wednesday evening (local time) and posted a short video clip that features her dining with Caitlyn Jenner.
According to People Magazine, in the first story, she zoomed in on a bread basket from a Los Angeles-based restaurant ‘Craig’s’ and said, “Fun fact, Craig’s in L.A. has the best bread of all time, specifically this one.”
“This is what I craved my whole labor and it’s the first thing I had right after I gave birth to Stormi,” she added.
In another story, the ‘Keeping Up With The Kardashians’ star was seen enjoying cocktails with Caitlyn.
The 23-year-old star is often seen unveiling the never-before-shared from her pregnancy with her now-3-year-old daughter, Stormi.
People Magazine reported that in 2018, a few days after she gave birth to her first child with Travis Scott, she disclosed some of the food she indulged in over the time span of nine months.
She told that she couldn’t resist eating at her favourite fast food joints, one of which was burgers from ‘In-N-Out’. “I used to go to the popular fast-food franchise and ordered a double cheeseburger and fries,” she revealed to her doctor while being at an appointment to check up on her and her daughter’s health.
Kylie also participated in a Twitter question and answer session with fans, where she further opened up about her pregnancy.
People Magazine quoted that when a fan asked her “What was the first thing you ate after giving birth?”, Kylie shared, “the bread from Craig’s! I had it waiting for me lol.”
In another tweet, a fan asked about the unique pregnancy cravings she had during the time she was carrying Stormi. To which she replied, “Eggos!!! I never liked them before I was pregnant & haven’t had one since I had her. So strange! Lol.”
Earlier, on daughter Stormi’s third birthday, the reality TV star had shared a super adorable clip of her daughter. The sweet video featured her tiny tot’s growth over the years.
Kylie shares Stormi with ex and rapper husband Travis Scott. In October, a source told People magazine, that Kylie and Travis are not back together but are happy co-parenting Stormi.
“There is a lot of love between Travis and Kylie, and they are even openly affectionate. But, they are not back together, and neither is in a place to be in a committed relationship,” the source said at the time. (ANI)

Blake Shelton wants Adam Levine to perform at his and Gwen Stefani’s wedding

Published

By

Washington [US], February 26 (ANI): Earlier, Popstar Miley Cyrus offered to be the singer for Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani’s upcoming wedding. Now, in a new interview with People magazine, Shelton rethought Cyrus’ offer and took aim at his fellow former “Voice” coach, Levine, in the process.
Fox News quoted the 44-year-old singer in an interview to People Magazine, saying, “Miley is one of the most talented singers I have ever met. She drives me crazy because she’s a lot like Kelly [Clarkson] in the way that they can burst out with this voice.”
“If I’m going to sing, I have to think about it and go warm up. It’s unfair,” the ‘Happy Anywhere’ singer lamented.
“Gwen was showing me that she even said, ‘I promise to be on my best behaviour. I’ve known Miley long enough [for her to have to say], ‘By the way, I’ll be nice when I get here.’ So that was nice of her,” Shelton continued.
Shelton then revealed that he would also like to see Levine’s band, Maroon 5, perform at the wedding, simply because it’ll “cost” the 41-year-old singer Levine.
“I don’t know what we’re going to do, but I still say Adam owes me a full-band performance with Maroon 5, mostly because I want it to cost him. I would rather have Miley as a human being,” Shelton humorously stated.
Per Fox News, earlier in the interview, Shelton reflected on his initial meetings with the 51-year-old songstress Stefani, when the ‘No Doubt’ vocalist joined the ‘Voice’ cast during season 7 — noting his surprise when he realised that Stefani drives a minivan.
“She had just had a baby [Apollo, with Gavin Rossdale], so there wasn’t even much of a friendship that first season. The thing I remember saying about her when people would ask was, ‘Oh my God, that girl is unbelievable. She drives a minivan to work!” I thought rock stars drove Rolls-Royces, and Gwen was driving a black minivan,” said the country crooner. (ANI)
