A sigh of relief for Indu Sarkar
Filmmaker MADHUR BHANDARKAR can heave a sigh of relief for Indu Sarkar – a film on Indira Gandhi-declared Emergency.
Indu Sarkar won't have to get an NOC from anyone in the Congress or the Gandhi family, says censor board chairman Pahlaj Nihalani. Bhandarkar says the movie is not sponsored or politically motivated and is mostly fiction. “I make films which are hard-hitting and i have been attempting to make this film for a long time. There are books and documentaries on Emergency. So why should not there be a film on the Emergency.”
On Congress allegations of it being a motivated project, Bhandarkar said, “Had they been true, I would have posited the film before the elections or timed the release strategically. That's not the case.”
‘I realised I started hosting shows from 2000, which was a Filmfare award. It's been 17 years! I am glad that every year I have managed to get the job! The experience is always good, as I enjoy whenever I am on stage.’
Singer Lorde believes she is an underdog in the music industry, and will stay that way until she releases ‘five amazing records.’
The Green Light hitmaker, whose real name is Ella Yelich-O'Connor, tasted stardom at the age of 16 when her single Royals became a hit in 2013. She has made a name for herself in four years, but she believes she has a long way to go.
Lorde said, “I'm just the underdog again. I always think, like making an album, I'm just that kid to and from work, sitting on the train.”
A thank you note to the fans
Pop star Ariana Grande has thanked her fans for their loyalty and support since the May 22 terrorist attack at the Manchester Arena. “At the close of this European leg of my Dangerous Woman tour, I just wanted to thank you properly for the overwhelming love and support you've shown me, my crew, and each other during this challenging time. Spending this time with you this month has been so very healing and special! Thank you for being here,” she posted.
She is to be recognised by the city after raising money for those affected by the terror attack.
