Paired with white heels, she tied her hair up in a ponytail and opted for similar makeup.
A family drama that celebrated both fragility and forgiveness, Kapoor & Sons is ending five years old today. Starring Alia Bhatt, Sidharth Malhotra, Fawad Khan, Rajat Kapoor, Ratna Pathak Shah and Rishi Kapoor, the film was directed by Shakun Batra. Celebrated for its portrayal of homosexuality in India, as well as a dysfunctional family, the film recorded a few first.
With the film Kapoor and Sons counting five years since its release, we revisit an old interview with the late actor Rishi Kapoor. The actor, who was in a new outfit in the role which was acquired via prosthesis and makeup, had spoken of his misfortune while filming the film. The actor had said that being old school, not a single day on set had gone without a fight with director Shakun, and he even offered to quit the film twice.
Rishi Kapoor played the role of Amarjeet Kapoor, the family’s mischievous grandfather. The actor’s ace then surprised his fans with this look of a 90-year-old where he was barely recognizable. Rishi won Filmfare’s Best Supporting Actor award for his work in Kapoor & Sons.
Rishi Kapoor’s look in Karan Johar’s “Kapoor and Sons” got everyone watching.
In an interview with DNA in 2016, Rishi said: “I didn’t have fun working for Shakun Batra at Kapoor & Sons. You see, I worked for 30-32 days on this film. Not a single day has passed that Shakun and I haven’t had a fight. he added: “It was not a creative fight. It was something else. We fought because I couldn’t agree with his way of working on my role. Shakun wanted to cover each of my shots from many different angles. But I’m a spontaneous old school actor. I couldn’t recreate the same expression multiple times for each shot. I respect all theater schools. But I am not an actor of method. With each successive shot, I lose my spontaneity. This new style of working where actors give the same shot over and over from different angles has been accepted because in the digital age no raw stock is wasted. Because they have the ability to edit a movie on a digital platform, they want more software. Thus, the actors have become robots. Rishi had said he had offered to quit the movie twice.
Kapoor & Sons was produced by Dharma Productions and Fox Star Studios.
Rishi shared in the interview, “I informed Karan Johar that I was leaving. Please understand that this was a very difficult role. For 13 hours I had to wear makeup and emoticons in contact lenses etc. I couldn’t do each shot from multiple angles.
At the end of the interview, Rishi Kapoor said it all ended on a high note. “Being the most senior, everyone was silent when I argued with my manager. But in the end, it was all worth it. I am extremely satisfied with my work and my film. I’m not complaining at all about Shakun’s way of working. Because in the end, everything went well. Shakun was very particular about my body language and my dialogue. I had to strike a balance between walking and talking at an unhurried yet not too slow pace, as it would get boring.
Zack Snyder’s first Justice League trailer debuted on Sunday. The trailer was full of surprises and callbacks, as Snyder had promised. While the CGI looks a bit choppy at times, the film feels like a Justice League-worthy epic. Will it erase memories of the Justice League of 2017 with the director’s 4-hour special version?
Here are five takeaways from the Snyder Cut trailer:
Earth forces vs. Darkseid
We get a few glimpses from the history lesson on the first time Apokolips’ forces invaded earth, with Darkseid himself leading the charge. Earth forces, including the Amazons, Atlantians, at least one Green Lantern, and the humans, fought Darkseid and his parademons and successfully repelled the invasion.
Wonder Woman History Lesson
Wonder Woman, as Diana Prince, learns about the Apokoliptian invasion thousands of years ago with the help of murals depicting the battle. This is the same invasion that will be described in the history lesson by her to the rest of the Justice League. In the theatrical cut, Diana was in the know, and we were confused as to how she found out.
Superman discovers his true purpose

In one scene, we see a callback to a scene from Man of Steel, in which Superman first learns to fly, as debris begins to spin around his hand. It is in Justice League that the last son of Krypton will discover what his real goal is. While in Man of Steel he was a newly created superhero, he became a confused divine figure in Batman v Superman, before seeing him die. In Zack Snyder’s Justice League, he will be resurrected and know his place in the world.

Like Batman v Superman, Batman had what is called a Knightmare, in which he dreamed that Darkseid was winning and Superman was going badly. It was to prevent that future from coming true that he assembled Justice League. Zack Snyder’s Justice League will also have a Knightmare streak, and we’ll get to see his nemesis there as well.
Zack Snyder adopted the popular ‘We Live in a Society’ meme and had Jared Leto’s Clown Prince of Crime say these words, now without face tattoos and wearing loose hair (as opposed to styling appropriately) . The meme itself, however, was inspired by Joker. “We live in a society where honor is a distant memory. Isn’t that right, Batman?
Zack Snyder’s Justice League will begin streaming on HBO Max on March 18.
Actor Sanjay Dutt’s daughter Trishala Dutt hosted an Ask Me Anything Instagram session on Tuesday where she spoke about mental health issues. However, she quickly received an unexpected question from one of her disciples. One of the followers of the AMA session asked her why she never “revealed” how her boyfriend died.
Trishala, at first, wrote: “I apologize in advance if my answer is cold. I’m not angry or offended by your question, but I want to educate people on Basic Social Skills 101.
Here is Trishala’s response to the Instagrammer who inquired about her boyfriend’s death. (Photo: Trishala Dutt / Instagram)
In a long note, she said: “It’s natural to want to know how someone died, even if it’s ‘none of your business’, isn’t it?”
“However, if you are curious about how someone died, but you are not close enough to know it already, then asking is intrusive,” she added.
In turn, she wondered if knowing about her boyfriend’s death had a purpose. “The most inappropriate reaction is to inquire about the cause of death. I want you to ask yourself this question – What is the point of me doing / asking this? Will knowing the answer allow me to help this person? or is it just a morbid curiosity? she wrote.
She further wrote: “If you don’t have the right to know the details of the death, stop asking. Asking for these details does nothing for the conversation. It does not console the person or bring the deceased back. “
Later another Instagram user asked why she was not part of Bollywood like her family to which Trishala replied that her interest lies in the FBI and that is why she is studying forensic psychology.
Trishala’s boyfriend passed away in 2019. She had posted some photos with him on Instagram. Saying goodbye to her, Trishala mentioned how he made her feel like the happiest girl on this planet.

She wrote: “Thank you for loving me, protecting me and taking care of me. You made me the happiest of my life. I am the luckiest girl in the world to have met you and I was lucky to be yours. You will live in me for eternity. I love you and I will miss you. Till we Meet Again.
In a new essay, legendary filmmaker Martin Scorsese argued that the art of filmmaking is “systematically devalued” as movie studios and streaming companies rush to produce “content.”
In his tribute to the great Italian filmmaker Federico Fellini, published in the March edition of Harper’s Magazine and titled Il Maestro, Scorsese admitted that streamers had helped his career because without Netflix there would be no Irish and without Apple. there would be no Flower Moon killers.
However, the filmmaker said the art of filmmaking is “systematically devalued, sidelined, demeaned and reduced to its lowest common denominator: ‘content’.”
“Just 15 years ago, the term ‘content’ was only heard when people were seriously discussing cinema, and it was contrasted and measured against ‘form’,” Scorsese wrote.

“Then gradually it was used more and more by people who took over media companies, most of whom knew nothing about the history of the art form, or even cared enough to think that they should, ”he added.
The filmmaker added that the word “content” has become a commercial term for all moving images.
“This was linked, of course, not to the theatrical experience but to home viewing, on streaming platforms that came to overtake the cinematic experience, just as Amazon has overtaken physical stores,” he said. declared.

The director, who is among America’s most influential filmmakers with classics such as Good Fellas, Taxi Driver, Raging Bull, The Aviator and The Departed and many more to his credit, said the packaging of everything as that content looks democratic but is not. t ”.
“If a deeper view is ‘suggested’ by algorithms based on what you’ve already seen, and the suggestions are based purely on subject or genre, then what does that do to the art of cinema?
“Conservation is neither undemocratic nor ‘elitist’, a term that is now used so often that it no longer makes sense. It’s an act of generosity – you share what you love and what inspired you… Algorithms, by definition, are based on calculations that treat the viewer as a consumer and nothing else.
Scorsese said that moviegoers cannot depend on the film industry to take care of the cinema.
“In the film industry, which is now the mass visual entertainment industry, the emphasis is still on the word ‘business’, and value is still determined by the amount of money to be made from a given ownership – in that sense, everything from Sunrise to La Strada up to 2001 is now pretty much wrung out and ready for the ‘Art Film’ swim lane on a streaming platform, ”he said .
“Those of us who know cinema and its history should share our love and knowledge with as many people as possible. And we need to make the current legal owners of these films understand that they are more than just assets to be exploited and then locked up. They are among the greatest treasures of our culture and must be treated accordingly, ”he added.
The director, who is reuniting with his favorite actors Leonardo DiCaprio and Rober DeNiro for his upcoming Killers of the Flower Moon, said Fellini’s films were “cinema”.
“I guess we also need to refine our notions of what cinema is and what it isn’t. Federico Fellini is a good starting point. A lot can be said about Fellini’s films, but here’s one thing that is indisputable: they are cinema. Fellini’s work goes a long way towards defining the art form, ”said Scorsese.
Megastar Amitabh Bachchan’s granddaughter, Navya Nanda, on Wednesday expressed disdain over Uttarakhand Chief Minister Tirath Singh Rawat’s remark after speaking about women wearing ripped jeans and ‘the example that they gave to their children and to society ”.
The CM made the remarks while speaking at a workshop organized by the Uttarakhand State Commission for the Protection of the Rights of the Child in Dehradun on Tuesday.
Speaking to Instagram, Navya wrote: “Change your mindset before you change clothes because the only shocking thing here is the message comments like this send to society.

The CM’s remarks drew criticism from many online users. Chhapaak writer Atika Chohan took to Instagram to post a series of selfies where she is seen wearing ripped jeans.
As for Navya, since going public with her Instagram account, she has been actively engaged in topics like women’s safety. Navya recently launched her project, Naveli, to tackle gender disparities in the country.
Recently, when an Instagram user asked her mother Shweta Bachchan’s profession, Navya highlighted the contribution of housewives. Shweta is an author and filmmaker; she also has her design label.
“Being a mother and wife is a full-time job. Please do not discredit housewives. Their role is so crucial in educating a generation that will hopefully support its contribution instead of demolishing it, ”Navya wrote in an Instagram story.
The first signs suggest a harmonious and friendly split between Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West.
While “Kimye” becomes just Kim and Kanye with Kardashian filing for divorce on Friday in Los Angeles Superior Court, they do so with a prenuptial agreement in place, independent fortunes, and a desire to share time with their four young children.
The presence of prenup means the couple have likely retained a large chunk of their assets – hers earned through reality TV and funneling her fame into several lucrative business ventures, hers earned through music and fashion – separated during their six and a half years of marriage.
“Where rich and productive people marry, the marriage contract will usually say that ‘my income stays with me and your income stays with you,” said lawyer Daniel Jaffe, a major player in celebrity divorces in the south. of California for decades. “So if, in fact, it does, there won’t be any major ownership issues.”
For the four children aged 7 years North to 21 months Psalm, Kardashian is seeking joint custody in her divorce papers. It doesn’t necessarily mean equal time or decision-making for almost 16 years until all children are adults.

“There is a lot of leeway in the space between shared custody,” said divorce lawyer Reid Aronson. “I know I have cases where they say it’s shared custody, but it’s really just because the party that doesn’t really have custody doesn’t want to feel left out.
But Jaffe says that in the vast majority of cases, at least legally, “each party is involved in making important decisions about children’s education, children’s travel, children’s religious education.”
Neither Jaffe nor Aronson are involved in this divorce.
By law, it will take at least six months for the couple to be declared divorced, but it will likely take longer to finalize given the finances and properties involved, even with an out-of-court split and prenup.
Custody of minor children is never final. It’s always subject to change by the court, and the details are often worked out in separate court proceedings long after the couple has been declared divorced.
Despite the signs of peace, divorces often turn sour as they progress.
“I hear an out-of-court divorce when these things start all the time, and it seems like for some reason something’s up and it blows up,” Jaffe said. “The friendship has just been broken by someone doing something ordinarily stupid and / or their lawyers doing something totally stupid, which turns an amicable divorce into a mad divorce.”
Any sign of conflict will be grasped by media hungry for detail in what was among the most followed unions of the 21st century, and the couple will have to fight to prevent the split from happening publicly, as much of the past year of their marriage did.
Judges generally agree to keep details of children’s finances and lives from public scrutiny.
And high profile couples, including Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, have increasingly paid for private judges, preventing nasty details from becoming public.
Kardashian attorney Laura Wasser, the most sought-after lawyer for divorcing celebrities with a constant flow of A-List clients, has often brought in private judges.
Yet strategic leaks can arise any time a client or their lawyer wishes, as happened in the Pitt-Jolie divorce, which also started out of court but has continued with conflicts of interest. custody and child support.
Such leaks are a key way to derail divorces.
“I would advise my clients not to judge the case in the press, because that’s where it really gets complicated, because if someone says something they don’t like, then the other person has to come back and respond, ”Jaffe said. . “So instead of doing this between lawyers or in a courtroom, what we have is page six where all litigation is going to take place. And it is not useful to resolve these cases amicably. “

Actor Ayub Khan has said that despite being born into a family of Bollywood veterans, he doesn’t really want to get into the movies. However, this happened out of necessity. Khan, who eventually made films like Apaharan, LOC: Kargil, Mrityudand, Salaami, and Dil Chahta Hai, has now been in the industry for three decades.
The son of old actors Begum Para and Nasir Khan, and the nephew of thespian Dilip Kumar, Khan has also established himself as a popular face on Indian television with shows such as Shakti, Ek Hasina Thi, Uttran and more. He is currently seen in Ranju Ki Betiyaan on Dangal TV.
Ayub Khan looks back at how it all started and what it was like to face the camera as the leader for the first time.
Here’s what he shared:
What was your first acting project? How did the project come to you?
My first film was Mashooq (1992) by Mirza Brothers. After school, I did little things in the commercials, then I walked away from it all. I thought I would become an air force pilot. Then I thought I would go to Jaipur to find out more about jewelry. But my mom kept pestering me to pursue a career in filmmaking and I thought I wasn’t cut out for it because I couldn’t understand. Soon my wallet decided my future. It told me I was hungry. I thought that maybe I am not qualified for a lot of the positions that I want to fill. Then my mother put a note and out of the blue I received this offer from Mirza Brothers. The 90s were the time when they threw industry players left to right and center. I was lucky to live in this phase. With me there was Kamal Sadanah, Saif Ali Khan and others who were launched at that time. Anyway, they called me and I became one of the ones that got started back then.
It was the 1990s. And I signed the film in 1989. So I was 21-22 years old. He was some kind of flamboyant, boastful character who is in love with this very skinny woman who rejects him. So he tries to woo her. It was the typical movie of that time.

What do you remember from your first day on the set?
The film was based on The Taming of the Shrew. It was also inspired by the movie Aan because my producers and directors were avid fans of my uncle (Dilip Kumar). They were probably hoping that when I got to the screen, I would do the same magic as my uncle (laughs). They supported and encouraged me a lot. I told them I was a little uncomfortable with it all, so they helped me get into Daisy Irani’s acting class. She helped me a lot. I remember when my producers were making a movie and I was helping them on sets because they wanted me to understand how things are done. Then a day after I packed up they said they wanted to take my screen test. I’m so scared. Anyway, I gathered my strength and decided to put my mind on the scene. I remember the lines were so weird, something like “I love you so much I’m going to break the stars…”
The moment I walked over to the heroine and looked up at her to say my lines, we both burst out laughing. I kind of got that back and continued with my lines. My producers were impressed and said it was a nice angle that I took, laughing in the middle of your lines. I was actually laughing at the dialogue. They thought it was my talent and I remained silent. This is how I got out of it.
Were you nervous? How many times have you taken?
Of course, I was nervous. And that’s how it stayed for a long time. It took me a number of years to get comfortable in front of the camera. This camera noise was very disconcerting. It’s not something I grew up with, we weren’t exposed to film sets. So I had no idea of this world. It wasn’t something I wanted to do either. It just came out of necessity.
The first take was accepted and I was blown away by the fact that “is that it?” Then I remember we were shooting the Mahurat scene from my movie in Pali Hills and my uncle Dilip Kumar came over to applaud. There were a host of other luminaries present there. This time again I had Ayesha to walk to, let’s say a few lines and we had to kiss. I remember I was doing fine, talking to my uncle who gave me some advice on breathing and calming my mind. By the time he said “action” I must have taken four steps towards Ayesha and they felt like four miles. They really need to teach actors how to handle their legs. By the time I met her, I was panting. So instead of finishing my lines and hugging her, I hugged her, put all my weight on her and said my lines. Today I can laugh about it, but this time it was very embarrassing. This time, I didn’t want anyone to know about it.
And who were your co-stars? How did you relate to them when you got to meet them or work with them again later?
It had Ayesha Jhulka, Pran, Kiran Kumar and other actors. Ayesha is a great person who makes you feel comfortable. This time, she had already made a film with Salman Khan. She was extremely confident and knew what she was doing. So that was a big help. A good reaction can give you a good deed. She is a great friend and we share a fantastic report. We didn’t discuss the work, but she kept the light on and it made it easy for me to romanticize her onscreen. Otherwise you don’t know how to touch, is it ok or not. She made it very easy for me.
If you are lucky enough to return to your starring role, what is that one thing that you would like to change or do better?
I would really like to be more confident. If I could have handled it better, surely I could have done better.
A movie or a role that inspired you to become an actor?
By the time I entered my mind it was the 70s. And we didn’t have a lot of great movies in the 70s and 80s. We had some nice movies but they were with tiles, bells. , wigs, big glasses and all that. As a child, I couldn’t even identify with this kind of bandage. So I wasn’t really interested in movies. Of course, there was Sholay, Ram Aur Shyam, etc. I was obviously in awe of my uncle and Amitabh Bachchan. His films dominated the roaster at the time, but not the industry in general.
