baaghi3-1

The shooting of Tiger Shroff and Shraddha Kapoor’s Baaghi 3 started yesterday at Harmony Mall Residency, Oshiwara. While everyone including cast and crew were quite kicked about the film, it caused inconvenience to the residents of that location as they claimed that the area was littered with plastics and cigarette buds. A resident of the building, Priyanka Periera told Mid-day, “The entrance and exit of the mall and residential tower are the same. On Wednesday afternoon, they had kept two trucks on the pathway which was blocking the entry and exit of the towers. It also was blocking any vehicle or auto from entering the tower. It was raining and I had to walk till the gate. When I asked people on set, they said that they had taken permissions.”

She further added, “The area leading up to the residential towers was strewn with used plastic bottles of water. The crew had eaten lunch and they were washing the plates in the pathway itself. I had hoped that maybe the second day would be better but it was worse. The crew was smoking in the parking and discarding cigarette buds. There was too much filth and the stench was unbearable.

A core committee member of the society told the tabloid, “We did everything possible to make them comfortable. We even made room for the celeb cars in our complex and ensured that the cars are looked after. The situation was an utterly chaotic one for the society members. People were stuck at the building entrance for 20 minutes. It’s important that the production house takes responsibility for keeping the area around the set clean.

kesari-super30

Shahid Kapoor will become Kabir Singh if THIS happens with wife Mira Rajput – watch exclusive video

Shahid Kapoor’s Kabir Singh is the remake of Vijay Deverakonda’s Arjun Reddy and is directed by Sandeep Reddy Vanga. The film also stars Kiara Advani, Suresh Oberoi and Arjan Bajwa in key roles

Mira-Kapoor-Shahid-Kapoor

Shahid Kapoor and Kiara Advani’s Kabir Singh has taken off to a flying start and there are no two ways about it. The Sandeep Reddy Vanga directorial has managed to hit a chord with the youth and it’s raging as we speak. Thanks to Shahid’s transformation into a rebel lover to recreate the huge success of the Telugu film it’s been made after. The actor can be seen smoking, drinking and swearing but at the same time digging deep into the psyche of a heartbroken. And going by the responses, Shahid has hit the bulls-eye and delivered his career-best performance in this Sandeep Reddy Vanga directorial.

But it wasn’t easy. Shahid Kapoor had to act like we was under the influence and it was a task because he is a teetotaler! But while that is that Shahid could draw some inferences and build a bridge between him and his character because of the unabashed abandon he was left to explore with. That and well, unconditional love. Yes, in a fun game segment with BollywoodLife, Shahid revealed the one time he would actually behave like Kabir Singh. And needless to say, it revolves around wife Mira Kapoor.

Talking about the film, it garnered rave reviews from all around the corners. Our Editor-in-chief Tushar P Joshi gave the film 4 stars and wrote, “Kabir Singh is an ace up Shahid Kapoor’s sleeve and a treat for his fans. Watch it if you want some intense romance laced up with knock-out performances.” He also praised Shahid’s performance and said, “Shahid delivers one of his careers finest performances. His rage and anger isn’t just on the surface but it’s visceral and a part of the air he breathes. To show that complexity isn’t easy, so Shahid digs deep and becomes the madness that is Kabir. He is deep and intense yet light and breezy when needed. There is a natural flair and charm that he puts to use full throttle. Kiara’s last scene with him is a revelation.

Demotivated by rejections in your life? Sunil Grover’s inspirational life story is what you need to read RN

Actor/comedian Sunil Grover has been a part of the entertainment industry for more than two decades. And it wouldn’t be wrong if we say that the 41-year-old actor has got the perfect comic timing on-screen. After the stupendous success of Bharat, Sunil is seeing a new high in his career and we hope he continues with his winning streak. But all that glitters is not gold, they say! Sunil Grover is currently in the happiest phase of his professional life but things were not the same when he just started out in the industry. The Bharat star recently opened up about his struggling days and we gotta admit the fact that Grover has worked hard to achieve what he has today.

Baring his heart out to Humans Of Bombay, the actor went down the memory lane and revealed, “I’d only earn around Rs 500 a month. But I thought I’d be successful soon. Eventually, I realised that there were many like me, who were ‘superstars’ of their town & ‘strugglers’ here. Soon, I had no income and was given a harsh reality check.”

Sunil added that he was demotivated at one point of time but he kept focusing on doing good work. The actor/comedian refused to give up on his dreams, no matter what. Sunil Grover also shared an instance from his life when he was replaced in a TV show. “At the same time, I also started getting work in voiceovers. So when I’d be rejected from TV and films, I had a cushion to fall back upon – something that most didn’t have. I realised how fortunate I was and regained my strength bit by bit,” revealed Sunil.

Despite all the hurdles that came his way, Sunil finally found his calling in a Radio show which proved to be a turning point in his career. “Around that time, I got offered to do a radio show. It was only going to be aired in Delhi, but when that show went life, it went viral! They decided to air it across India! After that, I got work on radio, TV and films. Soon ‘Gutthi’ happened & in no time, became a household name! I remember I was called on a live show & when I went on stage, the audience was roaring for me! I turned to make sure there wasn’t anyone else, whom they were clapping for – but it was all for me,” added Sunil.
