With the aim to give out a progressive message to society, filmmakers today don’t hesitate to flaunt their artistic side as quick as a wink. But every film has to suffer social media scrutiny. Recently, filmmaker Leena Manimekalai took the internet by storm after she dropped the poster of her documentary film Kaali.

The poster shows a woman dressed up as Goddess Kali holding an LGBTQ flag and smoking. Following the release, Manimekalai and her poster were mercilessly trolled on social media and FIRs have been filed by the Delhi Police’s Intelligence Fusion & Strategic Operations (IFSO) wing and the Uttar Pradesh Police for hurting religious sentiments.

A section of people protesting against the poster has also demanded a ban on the film while a section has issued death threats to the director in India.

Vikram Bhatt on Kaali controversy

Amid the controversy, APN Live spoke to filmmaker Vikram Bhatt about social media policing and how it impacts a director’s artistic license. Speaking about the controversy, the filmmaker said, “I am a very religious man and I feel you should not hurt anyone’s feelings.”

“I pray to the Goddess. You are showing her smoking. Creative license, yes, by all means, but if you are going to hurt people’s feelings, they are going to hurt you back,” Bhatt continued.

Talking further on creative license, Vikram Bhatt said, “Creative license should be allowed both ways. What I condemn is violence. But if you come out and hurt me, and if you are on Twitter or Instagram, I am going to hurt you back.”

Vikram Bhatt is in the news for his reunion with Mahesh Bhatt for another horror-love story Judaa Hoke Bhi. The film features Akshay Oberoi and Aindrita Ray in lead roles and is due for release on July 15.

Speaking about his love for the horror genre, Bhatt said, “I actually have an intense love for the love story genre. If you notice, horror is always the villain in a love story in my films. And that’s why the songs in my films have always been good. That’s why I titled the film Judaa Hoke Bhi. It’s a love story with horror.”

Judaa Hoke Bhi also features Meherzan Mazda, Rushad Rana, Punit Tejwani, and Jia Mustafa in titular roles and it is the first Indian film to be shot entirely in virtual production.

Shehnaaz Gill’s career has been soaring high ever since she appeared in Bigg Boss 13. Be it her acting prowess or her unfiltered nature, Shehnaaz Gill’s name is on the tip of everyone’s tongue. This time, the actor is garnering attention with her chat show Desi Vibes.

The second episode of Desi Vibes was graced by Ayushmann Khurrana. During the conversation, the Punjabi actor-singer broke down and said it is difficult for the actors to show their emotions as they are under the pressure of being judged. She said she is afraid of letting her guard down, as a few people believe that she is doing all this to gain sympathy.

During the conversation, Ayushmann talks about how he can’t express his feelings in public because of how they are perceived by others. She said celebrities are also allowed to express their emotions like everyone else. Ayushmann praised Shehnaaz and told her that she is brave since she fearlessly expresses her emotions in public, something that some people find difficult to do due to their personalities.

Shehnaaz then breaks down into tears, and Ayushmann tries to console her.

However, Sumbul picked captaincy over the prize money but it didn’t go down well with Archana Gautam. The actor-turned-politician became enraged and slammed Sumbul, claiming she doesn’t have the shakal to become a rani of the house. Archana even said that the Imlie actor is going to get evicted from the house next week.

Soon after the promo was shared, some criticized Archana for her derogatory remarks while others supported Archana for raising her voice.

One of the users wrote Archana jab tum bahar aao to dekhna ki sumbul kya h. Or usey BB ki Rani nhi India ki Queen bna diya gya h. Logo ke dilon par raaj karti h. Another wrote Sumbul Touqee ne jo itni see age mein achieve Kya hai Archana uss ki half bhi nahi hai.

A few others backed Archana and wrote Sumbul vaise toh kuch bolti nahi hai but jab bolti hai galat hi bolti hai. Bigg boss please send her to the secret room, she needs more training or call her in next season maybe, he added.

Meanwhile, Sumbul was nominated by Shaleen Bhanot this week.

Pathaan poster

Shah Rukh Khan is teasing his fans ever since he announced his film Pathaan earlier this year. Co-starring Deepika Padukone and John Abraham, the makers have now dropped a power-packed poster to continue the hype.

The countdown for Pathaan has officially begun as Shah Rukh Khan shared the new poster of the film. With the poster, he also announced that the film will hit the theatres on January 25, 2023, in Hindi, Tamil, and Telugu.

Check out Pathaan’s poster here:

Pathaan promises six-packed abs and a rugged look for Shah Rukh Khan. The makers have been sharing multiple BTS pictures from the film shoot.

The teaser of the film was unveiled on the occasion of Shah Rukh Khan’s birthday.

Helmed by Siddharth Anand and produced by Yash Raj Films, Pathaan will mark the fourth collaboration of Deepika Padukone and Shah Rukh Khan after Om Shanti Om, Happy New Year, and Chennai Express.

If reports are to be believed, the songs of Pathaan will be released even before its trailer release. A report in Pinkvilla said the makers are tight-lipped about the plot of Pathaan to build anticipation among the audience. The report also informed that the marketing campaign for the film will start in December as the makers are planning to launch peppy dance numbers from the film before releasing the trailer in January.

Reports also said there might be a sequel to Pathaan and the makers are planning the film into an action franchise. However, no official confirmations about this have been made yet.

Apart from Pathaan, Shah Rukh Khan will also be seen in Rajkumar Hirani’s Dhunki opposite Taapsee Pannu and Atlee’s Jawaan, alongside Nayanthara.

On the other hand, Deepika Padukone was last seen in Shakun Batra’s Gehraiyaan co-starring Siddharth Chaturvedi, Ananya Panday, and Dhairya Karwa.
