Harvey Weinstein’s MPAA membership has been revoked, in the wake of sexual abuse allegations.


Naseeruddin Shah says that he prefers playing bad guys onscreen. The actor, in a recent interview, said:

“They are more interesting than the goody two-shoe roles. Quite simply, my own favourite performances amongst my movies are Mastana, the gangster in Bombay Boys or Hafiz Subedar in Mirch Masala. I like playing characters like that. I don’t think I have done enough of that, and I am looking for more. I have always been cast as the idealist, the man fighting for a cause, and I am done with that.”



Fatima Sana Sheikh was trolled by social media users for a recent selfie. The actor posted a photo of herself wearing a saree on her Instagram account. The tagline she used was ‘Shameless selfie’. Soon enough, trolls attacked, with many calling out Fatima on her choice of attire. The actor is yet to respond.

Earlier this year, Fatima was attacked for posting a bikini photo during the month of Ramadan.
