A quick look at everything making news in the world of cinema today!

What’s new 

You have to give to Santhosh P. Jayakumar and his team for coming up with the most innovative movie title – Ghajinikanth. In online terms it is click-bait and sure to generate a lot of interest. The film will star Arya and Sayyeshaa Saigal and Studio Green will bankroll this project.

After her big fat Goa wedding, Samantha Akkineni is back to work. She recently posted a heartfelt message for the team of Malli Raava which is due to release on December 8. 

What’s making the news 

Sanjay Leela Bhansali has been getting a lot of support from international filmmakers. Iranian filmmaker Majid Majidi and French producer Ilann Girard who were present at the recently-concluded 48th International Film Festival of India (IFFI) in Goa spoke in support of Padmavati.

“My perception is that film and the cultural industry should not be taken hostage of the conflicts,”  Girard told IANS, while Majidi said, “Artists face these kind of situations because of the talent and desire they have. That extends to filmmakers too. They should not stop innovation in their work because of adverse conditions.”

Offbeat
