While the feature film segment consists of 25 movies, including Jai Bhim, Major, Ariyippu, The Kashmir Files and RRR, the non-feature segment boasts 20 titles such as Taangh, Other Ray: Art of Satyajit Ray, Clinton and Fatima, among others.
Indian Panorama, the flagship component of IFFI, was introduced in 1978 as part of the festival’s umbrella to promote Indian films along with the country’s rich culture and heritage with the help of cinematic art.”
“Actor Soha Ali Khan on Monday shared a glimpse of her Diwali celebration with husband Kunal Kemmu, brother Saif Ali Khan and sister-in-law Kareena Kapoor Khan. She posted a photo of the four of them dressed in their finery, with Kareena stealing the show in black. While Soha was clad in a mustard kurta, Kunal wore a red jacket and Saif twinned with Kareena in black. One photo featured just Kareena, Soha and Kunal, while another saw Soha and Kunal posing for the photographer.
Soha captioned her photos, “Love light and laughter. Wishing a very happy Diwali to you and your loved ones.”

Akshay Kumar is unfazed that his latest film Ram Setu will have a box office face-off with Sidharth Malhotra’s comedy film Thank God and insists one should not refer to two films releasing on the same day as a “clash”.
Ahead of the film’s release, Akshay, in an interview with Hindustan Times, said both the Diwali releases will find their audience.
He said, “There is no clash. Let’s not refer to it as that. They are two films, with different appeals, and are released on the same day. It’s happened in the past and it will happen in the future. The main objective is for our fans to enjoy the festival at the movies with friends and family.”
“Janhvi Kapoor finds it weird when people look at films with female protagonists as exceptions. The actor, who stars in the upcoming thriller Mili, has just one question to ask: If the film was instead titled Milan, would a male actor be made to feel the same?
In an interview with CNN-News18, Janhvi, who has headlined films like Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl and Good Luck Jerry, said, “I have done a couple of films where the protagonist of the film is a female character and I play that part. Every time I tell people about these films, they always address it like it is an anomaly.”
“Bollywood actor Ranveer Singh recently attended the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) 280 mixed martial arts event held at Yas Island, Abu Dubai.

An excited Ranveer posted a selfie with the actor-martial artiste and wrote, “AIKIDO MASTER, ACTION HERO, LEGEND.” The actor also posted selfies with MMA fighter Sean O’Malley and TV host Steve Harvey.
Ranveer will next be seen in Karan Johar’s Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani opposite Alia Bhatt, Dharmendra, Jaya Bachchan and Shabana Azmi. He also has Cirkus with Rohit Shetty in the pipeline.”
“Katrina Kaif walks into her terrace and fails to recognise it–thanks to Gauri Khan. In the latest video, the Phone Bhoot star is seen admiring how Gauri, through her design, has completely transformed her terrace space.
A snippet from the episode of Dream Homes shared by Mirchi Plus’ YouTube page, features Katrina Kaif opening the door to her terrace and being surprised as soon as she steps in. “Oh wow! This is just beautiful,” Katrina says as she keeps her hands on her face, awed by the makeover done by Gauri.
