Kangna RanautKangna Ranaut

Months after she got into a war of words with Apurva Asrani for his unwillingness to share the writing credit for Simran with her, Kangana Ranaut, it seems, has now irked the marketing department of the Hansal Mehta-directed project. After the team was unhappy with the film’s first trailer, the actor, we hear, has decided to take matters into her hands.

A source tells mid-day that Ranaut is in discussion with Mehta to zero in on how the trailer should eventually turn out, and the marketing team is apprehensive about her methods, since it may delay the promotional strategy. Given that the last commercial success she enjoyed was the 2015 comedy-drama, Tanu Weds Manu Returns, Ranaut has her hopes pinned on this outing, which, she believes, will put her back on the map. Hence, she is leaving no stone unturned to make the film a promising one, and may even sit at the editing table, calling the shots on how it will play out.

Mehta, is happy to give the actor a free hand since he finds her inputs crucial. It is believed that he is of the opinion that had Vishal Bhardwaj paid heed to Ranaut’s recommendations, crisper editing could have made Rangoon a better film.

Angad Bedi and Salman KhanAngad Bedi and Salman Khan

Like it did for its three lead protagonists, Shoojit Sircar’s critically-acclaimed film Pink (2016) also gave a boost to Angad Bedi’s acting career. Bedi, who played the antagonist in the Taapsee Pannu-starrer, is now set to feature alongside Salman Khan in the latter’s sequel to his 2012 actioner, Ek Tha Tiger.

Essaying the part of a RAW agent is demanding, given that it requires the actor to whip himself in shape, but Bedi says the experience is one he cherishes. Chronicling his training routine, he tells mid-day, “Besides working out for nearly six hours a day, I am also learning different forms of martial arts. I trained in kickboxing and Muay Thai. The hand-to-hand combat fight sequences are challenging to pull off. RAW agents are physically strong, so, I had to work on achieving strength, as well as their agility.”

Apart from enhancing his fitness, the actor also learnt how think like a RAW agent. “I had to study the manner in which they think. They have a strong sense of purpose and are sharp.”

Bedi has already wrapped up a 25-day schedule and will jet off to Abu Dhabi for another 45-day plan by the end of this month. It is during this schedule that the action sequences will be canned. The actor speaks about teaming up with Khan with earnest excitement.

“Shooting with Salman bhai has been special. He is a great man and loving colleague. If he likes you, he takes you under his wing. I am loving being pampered. I love the stories he has to tell, the anecdotes he shares from his experience. His learning from his 25-year-long career are worth listening to. It gives you a deep insight into the industry, its ways and how it has evolved.”

The second episode of ‘Game Of Thrones’ season 7 wasn’t exactly high on adrenaline rush. While we just can’t keep calm over Daenerys’ aggressive narcissism and the epic conversation that follows between her and Jon, the real punch was delivered by none other than Lady Olenna, the show’s official badass.

Olenna's Parting Shot To Cersei Makes Her The Official GoT Badass

Even though Cersei takes over Highgarden, defeating House Tyrell, she couldn’t win over sassy granny Olenna. Lady Tyrell has been quite a handful ever since she was introduced in the show. But her parting shot to Cersei was the most fiery comeback ever used in the show. Safe to say she is the official badass on GoT.

Not an iota of fear on her face and not a hint of regret, she reveals to Jaime how she got his son Joffery killed on his wedding day. “I want her to know it was me,” she says with satisfaction writ all over her face. What a way to go!

Mic drop!

You may have killed me, but I killed your son. Peace. #GameofThrones #ThronesYall pic.twitter.com/whwD66mE3M

Even though she receives the kindest death on ‘Game of Thrones’, she manages to be turn the tables on her murderer. Jaime bragging about how he talked Cersei out of giving Olenna a cruel death is the most ironic fails on the show.

Best farewell speech eva!

Today’s ‘Game of Thrones’ episode brought some major twists and turns. From major meet-ups to some diplomacy plans, it goes without saying that the 4th episode of GOT seventh season is already getting people excited.

A week is left for the next episode and things are going to get a lot more intense and interesting. We don’t know much of what to expect from it, as the 30 seconds trailer hardly gives out a lot of what’s in store for us.

The makers every now and then are giving us a small piece of the cake and man, that’s enough to raise our expectations and build our curiosity.

The trailer of GOT season 7 episode 4 ‘The Spoils of War’ shows Daenerys telling Jon Snow, “All my allies are gone, I’m losing.”

Well, well, that’s indeed a tough situation, let’s count all the people she lost: Tyrell: defeated, Euron: defeated……. Dothraki and the Unsullied: trapped at the Casterly Rocks and House of Martell: they might end soon too!

Cersei is shown doing what she is best at: plotting to take charge of what is her. “My only venture at this moment is reestablishing control over this continent and every person on it,” Cersei tells the Iron Bank’s Tycho Nestoris looking at the Westeros map.

And who’s that hand taking out a knife? Is it Little Finger…..?

You also see Arya looking at Winterfell from far, Sansa looking determined, Brienne of Tarth fighting, Theon Greyjoy returning back to the shore and Podrick thrown on the ground and finally, we see a dragon.

Well, everything is pretty interesting but it is the dragon that caught our attention. After all, every time they enter the frame we know something extreme is bound to happen.

It’s not just their appearance that makes us excited but take a closer look and you will realise there is a huge surprise in store for every one of us, that will make you lose your mind.

As per the fan theories go around, people have spotted a blonde glint behind the dragon. Yes, we are also thinking exactly what you are.

Though one can’t be sure…but it definitely looks like Daenerys riding the giant all set to win the much-awaited war. Well, Lannisters get ready to get roasted!

Good actors are unpredictable and so is Matt Damon.

With each new performance, Matt keeps growing not only as a performer or an artist but also as a viewer. He knows which roles would suit him the best and so he takes a chance on them. Surprisingly, the performance turns out to be as always a better and polished one. ‘Smart choices’ could be the two words for his splendid and enormous career of around 29 years (since 1988). It could be his brilliance as an artist as he outperformed many others of his age and bagged his first Academy Award, not for acting but for Best Original Screenplay in ‘Good Will Hunting’ (1997), when he was just 27-year-old.

Who would believe by then that the young Matt would certainly become one of the most bankable stars in Hollywood? He is not only an actor by now a producer also. His last production ‘Manchester by the Sea’ (2016) received six Oscar nominations including the one for the Best Picture.

When it comes to acting, Matt has tried his hands onto multifarious roles. For him, it is just not justified to be normally beckoning.  He has to be the superior one, a brilliant mathematician, an uptown businessman, or an astronaut cum botanist, as his career demands. That is the hard reality of Damon’s life. Behind those clean blue eyes and the chocolate boy image, there is something more which makes him the ‘Jason Bourne’.

It all started way back in 1997 when Damon teamed up with his childhood friend Ben Affleck and wrote the screenplay for ‘Good Will Hunting’. The two actors with Robin Williams created magic on screen.

Thanks to the fact that this young lad knew by then, what a gripping screenplay is all about. The following year was more glorious for Damon, as he bagged a major role with Tom Hanks, a titular character in ‘Saving Private Ryan’ (1998). However, it is a lesser known fact that Robin Williams, who had earlier worked with Steven Spielberg, introduced Matt to him. Steven signed him later for the role.

After Private Ryan, there was no stopping for him. His character in ‘The Talented Mr. Ripley’ (1999) was critically acclaimed. The very next year he did ‘Dogma’, an intense and highly intellectual subject matter, which earned all praise for him. He also tried his hands onto some romantic dramas, films which proved to be commercially unsuccessful. Damon got a wider recognition when he signed up two major film franchises – Ocean’s Eleven and Jason Bourne, the latter established him a star of global recognition.

One cannot forget his stellar performance in Martin Scorsese’s ‘The Departed’. With less noise, the star quietly transformed into a great ‘everyman’ actor (As described in Entertainment Weekly). While his roles in ‘The Informant!’, ‘Invictus’ remained critically acclaimed, his magnetic performance in ‘The Martian’ (2015), when he earned a nomination for Best Actor against Leonardo DiCaprio, got a positive reception from both critics and audience. This year, Matt is coming up with two films of different genres – ‘Downsizing’ and ‘Suburbicon’. ‘Suburbicon’s’ trailer has already hit the screens; Matt seems to have worked really hard to put on some plush for this role.

We hope to see more of Damon year after year, as it is said, the best is yet to come. Though Leonardo got his Oscar in the acting category after 25 years since he started, it will be interesting to see if Matt will be able to bag one, yet again, however, this time for the Best Actor!

The meeting of ice and fire finally happened and there was a lot of steam that was let out. A scene every GOT fan has been looking forward to, the meeting of Daenerys Targaryen and Jon Snow was by far one of the most comical scenes in the series. We’ve lost count of the number of times Dany has reiterated her Targaryen-mother-of-dragons-heir-to-Iron-Throne identity.

Since the time Priyanka Chopra started working in Hollywood, the girl is in news for some or the other thing. Be it big or small, she always makes it to the headlines. We got to agree that she is loved by the Western media as much as we love her.

A couple of days ago she was all over news as she announced her collaboration with Bollywood dhak dhak girl Madhuri Dixit for a comedy series. 

One of the favorite parts of my job, is to be able to tell stories across genres, languages and to a varied audience.  Today I’m happy to share with you another step I’ve taken on that creative journey, in my role as a producer. This particular story is one of a few Hollywood projects that I am currently developing. The incredible Madhuri Dixit’s real life has been the inspiration behind Sri Rao’s amazing story, and I can’t wait to work with the both of them to see how this will pan out. Again, it’s unchartered territory for me, producing a show for American television but I’m blessed to have a great set of partners in Mark Gordon Company’s Mark Gordon and Nick Pepper, along with ABC Studios to develop and produce this very fun idea. After having an incredible experience with them on Quantico, this seemed like a perfect extension of our partnership. I’ve only just begun and there is little I can share at this point about any of the projects but I’m looking forward to rolling up my sleeves and getting to work. Stay tuned. @abcnetwork #NickPepper #MarkGordon @madhuridixitnene @newyorksri @purplepebblepictures

A post shared by Priyanka Chopra (@priyankachopra) on Jul 29, 2017 at 8:56am PDT

For people who don’t know what we are talking about, she will be producing an American comedy series based on the life of Madhuri for ABC Studios. And the news has got many excited. After all, Madhuri has ruled the hearts of millions for a very long time.

The title of the show hasn’t been decided yet, but the show will revolve around how the gorgeous diva lived in the US when she shifted there after her wedding. The script will be written by Sri Rao who has also written the script for ‘General Hospital: Night Shift’. The serial will introduce us to that part of actress’s life that many of us are not even aware of and that’s the reason why people can’t wait to watch the show.

Priyanka is producing an @ABCnetwork show based on @madhuridixitnene’s life.. about a former Bollywood actress living in America 🙌ðŸ?¼ðŸ’• yes GIRL! bringing more diversity to American television ✨ ~ #priyankachopra #madhuridixit

A post shared by Priyanka Chopra Fan Page �🌈 (@pcourheartbeat) on Jul 28, 2017 at 11:01am PDT

After Priyanka confirmed this news, everyone flooded her Twitter page with wishes. But what caught everyone’s attention was when ‘The Big Bang Theory’ star Kunal Nayyar tweeted approaching Priyanka for a role. Well, we ain’t joking—the actor is actually interested in working with her and he wrote: “In case you need a beautiful heroine @priyankachopra I’m available!”

In case you need a beautiful heroine @priyankachopra I’m available! https://t.co/bPhLuhekXq

— Kunal Nayyar (@kunalnayyar) July 29, 2017

To this Tanmay replied instantly, “Get in line Nayyar.”

Get in line Nayyar

— Tanmay Bhat (@thetanmay) July 29, 2017

And even Kal Penn joined the conversation and tweeted:

Oh shit I’m in THIRD position?!

— Kal Penn (@kalpenn) July 29, 2017

However, PeeCee being her sweet self-wrote, “Haha. I’ll keep it in mind @kunalnayyar that’s a great thought.” And to 

Tanmay, she advised don’t get into a fight! She tweeted, “Boys don’t fight.. this is an equal opportunity project!”

This is just so amazing! Wouldn’t it be wonderful if Priyanka and Kunal could collaborate too?

Well, that might happen someday but for now, we are pretty excited about Madhuri and Desi girl working together and can’t wait to get a sneak peek into what the show will offer us.
