From Sana’s next to Tovino’s Tamil debut, a quick look at all things bright and somewhat shiny in Cinema today!
Tovino Thomas has signed on to star in a Tamil film, directed by BR Vijayalakshmi
Sana and Vaibhav Reddy will team up for Venkat Prabhu’s 2nd production
Tovino will play a disgraced Police Officer in Dhanush’s Malayalam production – Tharangam.
Niharika Konidela, Nara Rohit will star in an unconventional romantic comedy
The Battle of Sargarhi will get three different film productions this year.
The makers of Behen Hogi Teri have been released on bail. Earlier this week, the film’s director and producer were arrested for ‘insulting religious sentiments’. A poster for the film showed Rajkummar Rao dressed as Lord Shiva. This is said to have offended some people, who promptly filed a complaint.
Rajkummar Rao is depressed at the lack of recognition for his survival drama, Trapped. The actor told DC:
“Yes, I felt sad when ‘Trapped’ didn’t win any National Award. ‘Trapped’ was submitted in 2016 for the National Award.”
Instead, Akshay Kumar won the National Award for his work in Rustom and Airlift, while Sonam Kapoor’s Neerja won the Best Film award.
Let them eat cake!
Actor Carey Mulligan, Singer Kylie Minogue, Football player Michael Oher will all turn a year older today!
