Have you heard? Big B agrees


In an expressive support for India’s diplomatic stance, Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan has publicly lauded the External Affairs Minister, S. Jaishankar, for his articulate rebuttal to Maldivian President Mohamed Muizzu’s recent portrayal of India as an overbearing presence in the subcontinent. Amitabh Bachchan voiced his approval through a social media post, amplifying a video clip where Minister Jaishankar is seen firmly dismissing the allegation, stating, “Big bullies don’t provide $4.5 billion when their neighbours are in trouble. Bullies don’t supply vaccines to other countries when Covid is on. Bullies don’t make exceptions to their own rules to respond to food, fuel or fertiliser demands because some war in some other part of the world has complicated their lives.” Bachchan’s straightforward tweet echoed his sentiment: “Wah, well said, sir.”

In the sphere of Indian cinema, choreographer-director Prabhu Deva has embarked on the second schedule for the upcoming film “Kannappa” in New Zealand, bringing his distinctive choreographic prowess to the table. Vishnu Manchu, who stars in the film, has expressed his profound honour at collaborating with Deva, whose work is celebrated for its seamless amalgamation of Western and Eastern dance forms. “Kannappa” itself delves into the lore of a staunch devotee of Lord Shiva, and anticipates blending dance styles to pay tribute within its narrative.

The silver screen is set for a heartfelt reunion as “Taare Zameen Par” actor Darsheel Safary teases the social media sphere with a snapshot alongside Aamir Khan, his mentor from the film.

While fans eagerly anticipate more news, Khan has hinted at an entertaining shift from the previous film’s emotional impact, promising levity and laughter in the upcoming adaptation.

On television, the delightful series “Khichdi” returns, bringing actress Supriya Pathak back as the beloved Hansa in “Khichdi 2: Mission Paanthukistan”. Pathak compares the comedic series to a wellness regimen and reflects on the complexity of maintaining the pure innocence of her character over the years, touting comedy’s capacity to uplift without resorting to crudeness.

Turning the spotlight to on-set experiences, actress Naila Grewal shares her enriching time working alongside Ravi Kishan in “Maamla Legal Hai”. She describes the project as an immersive masterclass, noting how Kishan’s authentic Bihari touch impacted her performance, injecting it with nuanced authenticity.

Digital entertainment also makes a buzz as India’s YouTube sensation Carry Minati announces the third season of the gaming reality show “Playground”. Committed to nurturing raw talent, Minati emphasizes the potential of India’s gaming scene, which despite being in its infancy, is ripe for growth and innovation.

Lastly, the trailer release for “Ae Watan Mere Watan” crafts a visual prelude to an unsung chapter from India’s struggle for independence during the 1942 Quit India Movement. Lead actress Sara Ali Khan speaks about the film resonating as a celebration of the unyielding spirit of the country’s unsung heroes and the vibrant energy of the nation’s youth.
