Actor Naseeruddin Shah has always been vocal about his thoughts, whether it is about films or current affairs. Recently at the India Film Project event, Shah was in conversation with Anand Tiwari. He was asked whether his views about political and social issues have adversely affected his ties with film fraternity.

“I faced a lot of abuse by people, who have nothing better to do,” says Naseeruddin Shah

"I never had any close relationship with the film industry and fraternity in any case. I don't know whether it has affected my standing or not because I don't often get offered work very much. What I felt I said and I stand by it. I faced a lot of abuse by people, who have nothing better to do, but it doesn't affect me at all. What is disturbing is the open hate," the actor said.

Naseeruddin Shah was one among the over 180 members of the cultural community who condemned the FIR lodged against 49 celebrities for an open letter they wrote to Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

In July, around 49 personalities including Anurag Kashyap, Adoor Gopalkrishnan, Mani Ratnam and Aparna Sen wrote an open letter to the PM raising concerns about the rising mob lynching incidents in the country. However, a week ago an FIR was filed in Bihar's Muzaffarpur against these 49 personalities for alleged sedition.

Just last month we had reported that post Chhapaak , Deepika Padukone would commence work on Luv Ranjan’s next that would also star none other than Ranbir Kapoor and Ajay Devgn. Now we hear that the makers of the recently released film War, Yash Raj Films have decided to join the project as co-producers. Interestingly, this will be the first time that YRF, which till date has produced films under their own banner while steering clear of co-production, will partner on a venture.

SCOOP! Yash Raj Films to co-produce Luv Ranjan’s next starring Deepika Padukone and Ranbir Kapoor

Commenting on the same a source close to the development tells us, “YRF usually do not come on board as co-producers. But with Luv Ranjan’s next, the mega production house is looking to start something new.” Further talking about the same the source continues, “If that wasn’t enough, YRF has locked a three film deal with Ranjan, but details of the others are not available. Right now it remains to be seen whether the other two ventures with Ranjan are co-production ones as well.”

With Yash Raj Films entering the market to co-produce films, the scenario of filmmaking is set to change. And aiding this further is the fact, that besides Ranjan’s films, YRF will also be announcing multiple other ventures as well. Talking about this, our source adds, “Over the next few months YRF will be announcing a host of new projects, all of which will be co-productions with other filmmakers and banners.” Prod the source for the reason behind this shift in production, and he adds, “Co-production seems to be the way forward, like that the onus of responsibility and burden of loss are not solely shouldered by one entity. So it is obviously looking like a better deal, especially with film budgets growing by the day.” Though Yash Raj Films opening up to the possibilities of co-production is certainly interesting, an official announcement on the same is still pending.

However, an industry insider denies the development saying, "No YRF is not getting in to co-production. Instead they have locked a deal with Luv Ranjan for global distribution of his film".

As for Luv Ranjan’s next, the story of the film is said to be a heartland drama revolving around the quirky tale of a father and son essayed by Ranbir and Ajay.

Hrithik Roshan was recently seen in the action packed entertainer War.

Rakesh Roshan roped in Sanjay Gupta to directed Hrithik Roshan starrer Krrish 4

Comment on the same a source says, “Yes Rakesh ji has roped in Sanjay Gupta to helm Krrish 4. Given that the film is a slick action entertainer, Gupta has the perfect sensibilities to direct such a movie.” Further talking about the budget of the film the source continues, “The Krrish franchise has become pretty popular, well it is India’s only superhero franchise so it is obvious that the budget would be a big one. Besides with the amount of VFX, pre and post production work that Krrish 4 will involve, a film on this scale will have to have a big budget. As of now, reports are that Rakesh Roshan has locked the budget at a whopping Rs. 250 cr!”

Further talking about Krrish 4 and its tentative schedule the source adds, “After War Hrithik already has a project lined up, so Krrish 4 will only start either in the second half of 2020 or towards the end of next year. But work on the film will start before that, especially since such films require immense ground work in the pre-production stage.”

While the makers of the TV show Yehh Jadu Hai Jinn Ka launched the show with much pomp at the Pataudi Palace, getting permission for the same was not an easy task. Actor Saif Ali Khan, who owns the 10-acre property has long appointed a six-member committee that looks into the upkeep of the mansion. The committee is headed by Sharmila Tagore.

Here’s how Saif Ali Khan granted permission to the makers of Yehh Jadu Hai Jinn Ka to shoot at the Pataudi Palace

The committee had a series of meetings with the showrunner Atif Khan before they allowed the makers to shoot in the 150-room palace. Reportedly, a member from the production team said that it is Sharmila Tagore who looks into such requests. Atif had approached the team in August to discuss the possibility of shooting in the palace. Before giving access to the palace, the committee wanted to know about the show's concept and the scene that would be filmed. Only after getting a nod of approval from Sharmila Tagore did the team grant permission to the
makers of the show.

However, the team was also given a set of instructions to be followed while shooting. The unit was allotted a restricted area which included the Deewan-E-Khas and the lawn. They were also instructed that the cast and crew had to be barefoot inside the palace and not touch the artefacts.

After his Luka Chuppi co-star Kriti Sanon shooting for a small role in the film, now his Pyaar Ka Punchnama 2 and Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety co-star Sunny Singh will also be seen in a special role.

Director Mudassar Aziz while talking to a media house said that Sunny Singh’s role is something that he has never done before because of its setting which is in the heartland of Uttar Pradesh. Kartik and Sunny have known each other for a long time now. The filmmaker said that because they are friends they share a sense of humour and comic timing from before. He also said that the two can barely give a composite shot together as they burst out laughing each time.
Pati Patni Aur Woh is a remake of BR Chopra’s 1978 film of the same title. Aziz revealed that Sunny Singh’s character is not based on any character from the original film. Just like the original, Pati Patni Aur Woh revolves around the male lead character a family man with a wife (Bhumi Pednekar) and child.

Two movies with similar storylines are set to lock horns at the box office. Ujda Chaman starring Sunny Singh in the lead role is an official Hindi remake of 2017 Kannada film Ondu Motteya Kathe. The trailer was released recently and the makers were marketing it as the first film featuring a bald protagonist. Another film along the same lines is Bala starring Ayushmann Khurrana in the leading. While the teaser was released a month ago, the trailer was unveiled on October 10. The theme of the film is about premature balding and the film has been preponed from November 15 to November 7 now.

Ujda Chaman director plans to send legal notice to Bala makers over copyright violation

This sudden change in the date has left Ujda Chaman makers fuming. The father-son duo Kumar Mangat and Abhishek Pathak are even considering taking legal action over copyright violation. The film marks the directorial debut of Abhishek.

Abhishek Pathak, who is making his directorial debut with Ujda Chaman, said that he believes that good stories need to be seen by the maximum number of people. His studio Panorama Studios always looks out for such stories. He said that they acquired the rights to Ondu Motteya Kathe in the last quarter of 2018 with the intention to release it this year. He said that his team suggested November 8 and this is how their campaign began.

Abhishek Pathak further said that Bala makers have been changing their release date, from November 22 to November 15 to November 7, which is a day prior to his film. He said that he does not how this will help instead it will harm both films and industry at large. He pointed out that Ayushmann Khurrana is a saleable star at the box office and it wouldn't affect the film. He even claimed the poster design is very similar.

He further stated that the content in the trailer looks very similar and that it seems like it has been taken from the original Kannada film. He said that he has the original rights and that the makers of Bala have tried to maneuver certain things like in the original movie, there's a girl selling hair products to bald men whereas, in Bala, Ayushmann is selling products to dusky girls.

Speaking of going the legal way, Abhishek Pathak stated that they are discussing with their legal team and will take action in few days since it is clear case of copyright violation. He said that he can understand two films around bald characters releasing in short span of time but there are many striking similarities between the two films.

The statement released by Dinesh Vijan's team read, "Bala has been in the works for several months now as it has been widely reported in the press. The film is very close to our hearts as a project because we want to meaningfully contribute to the conversation on challenging social themes of our times, like the widespread stigmatisation of baldness and dark skin. If there are multiple films that deal with one of these themes, it is all the more variety for the viewers to choose from which can never be a bad thing. It’s quite unfortunate if someone, especially a fellow filmmaker, sees this as anything but a positive for audiences. Maddock stands firmly by the originality of its film, and will back its project all the way, including through legal recourse if need be."

There were reports earlier that the film will be simply titled Radhe. “Yes, but the producers Sohail Khan got Radhe: India's Most Wanted Cop registered as the title.

Remo, while talking to a media house said that the workshop was essential because they are playing with several dance forms, including crumping, breaking, hip hop, old school, and B-boying. The training went on to the wrap of the film. Remo said that it was like a six-month dance camp.

The Bihar Police, on Wednesday, ordered closure of a sedition case filed against 49 celebrities including Anurag Kashyap, Shyam Benegal and Naseeruddin Shah. A few months after the celebrities wrote a letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi over lynchings and religious war cry, local advocate Sudhir Kumar Ojha filed a complaint in Muzaffarpur, following which a sedition case was lodged.  The list of accused also included historian Ramachandra Guha, actors Soumitra Chatterjee, Aparna Sena, filmmaker Mani Ratnam, actor Revathi and singer Shubha Mudgal.

Sedition case against Anurag Kashyap, Naseeruddin Shah and others dropped by Bihar Police

Citing the case as 'false', the police said that actions will be taken against the petitioner. Ojha, who defended prime accused, Brajesh Thakur in the Muzaffarpur shelter home sexual abuse case has earlier filed over 700 PILs against personalities like Manmohan Singh, Amitabh Bachchan and Hrithik Roshan to name a few. The concerned investigating officer in the present case has been directed to file the final report in a day or two, and further actions against the petitioner will then be determined.

The sedition case caused rage in people of all spheres, and also drew flak from public figures including Rahul Gandhi. Actor Naseeruddin Shah and various others from the artists' fraternity wrote another letter, asking how could sending a letter to the country's Prime Minister and demanding his attention be called seditious.
