“Let us begin this bulletin with news on actor Tabu, who delivered two of her career-defining performances, Maqbool and The Namesake, opposite late actor Irrfan Khan. Tabu believes it was Irrfan who taught her to be true to her characters and herself.
In a new interview, Tabu asserted that what she shared with Irrfan on-screen, she can’t share with anyone else. She told Film Companion about the late actor, “He affected me a lot and I changed a lot after working with him. It’s like those people who come into your life and redefine it and make you see things differently. I learnt to be completely true to my characters and myself and bring that to my work.””
“There will be both light and darkness in the subsequent sequels of Brahmastra, says director Ayan Mukerji, who teased that fans will be treated to a “dramatic conflict” in the forthcoming part two titled Dev. The first film was just the set-up for the upcoming two instalments of the planned trilogy
Ayan Mukerji said, “‘Love is the light’ was my line for the film. Brahmastra: Part One used to be called ‘Love’ for the longest time because that was the theme of the film. “It is a love story and Shiva got his power from love. But ‘Part Two: Dev’ will be a darker and juicier story in terms of the dramatic conflict. The follow-ups will be darker for sure,””
“The trailer of Maja Ma, starring Madhuri Dixit, Gajraj Rao and Ritwik Bhowmik was released. The film will stream on Amazon Prime from October 6
The family entertainer focuses on the life of Madhuri’s cheerful and benign Pallavi, who is the backbone of her simple middle-class family. Her son, played by Ritwik, dotes on her as he emphatically mentions at the beginning of the trailer. However events start to spiral out of control that put her son’s engagement in jeopardy, and the future in-laws threaten to return to the US. The film promises love, heartbreak, joy and a lot of dancing and promises an empowering role for Madhuri, who at the end says that she has her own identity. “
Madhuri Dixit launched the trailer of her upcoming Amazon Prime Video film Maja Ma with co-actors Gajraj Rao, Ritwik Bhowmik, Srishti Srivastava and Barkha Singh.
Following the trailer launch event, Madhuri spoke about how she’s enjoying this phase in her life as an actor doing projects for streaming platforms.
On bagging great roles, first in Netflix’s The Fame Game and now Amazon Prime Video’s Maja Ma, she said, “I’ve been working throughout with Total Dhamaal, Kalank. Then The Fame Game happened and I felt I got a very good role to play. It had good depth. There were so many emotions. She’s a star, a mother, a wife. So, I am fortunate I’m getting these many roles. I’m enjoying it.””
“Actors Saif Ali Khan and Hrithik Roshan are currently busy promoting their upcoming film Vikram Vedha, a remake of the Tamil film of the same name. Ever since the trailer was released, audiences have been excited to see Saif portray the role of a cop.
The director duo of Pushkar and Gayatri could only praise Saif. They said, “We wanted Saif to adopt the genuine encounter specialist cop persona. We were astounded by his rigorous research regimen, which included immense practice with real weapons and understanding the drill of using the real weapon. Saif has put in a lot of hard work, and his passion for his craft is visible in his body language in the film.””
