Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s next big movie seems to keep landing in trouble over and over again. The ambitious script created quite a stir with the public. While we as the audience are waiting eagerly for Padmavati to hit the silver screens, there are numerous factions of society that have a huge problem with the movie.
The makers just released a new poster of Padmavati. While this shows Deepika Padukone as a true Rajput queen, different members of the Rajput community have raised concern over the intent of the film. A BJP MLA, Diya Kumari, who hails from a royal family of Jaipur, issued a statement saying, ”No film should hurt the sentiments of a community by twisting historical facts. The director of the film Padmavati, Sanjay Leela Bhansali should not wrongly depict the story of Queen Padmavati of Chittor. He should get the facts in (sic) the film verified by a forum of historians and then release the film.”
She further added the image of Queen Padmavati would be lowered if people see her dancing as a “commoner.” Diya Kumari also requested the Censor Board to no release Padmavati till all these issues were clarified. These continuing controversies are seriously affecting the distribution of the film as distributors do not want to get involved with a film that has been involved so many controversies surrounding it.
With such a huge setback to Padmavati, it is going to be really interesting to see how Sanjay Leela Bhansali releases the movie on the scheduled date! Starring Ranveer Singh, Shahid Kapoor and Deepika Padukone, Padmavati is slated to hit the silver screens on 1 December, 2017!

Dhadak Is Ruling Our Hearts And The Box Office!
This lovely flick is everything you want to know about!
Two love birds brimming with love and the consequences they face are extremely astonishing, due to caste differences. Dhadak which is a remake of the super hit Marathi flick Sairat, is definitely worth a watch. It marks the debut of Janhvi Kapoor, the daughter of the legendary actress the late Sridevi and everybody is all praise for this young actress! The movie also features Shahid Kapoor’s half brother Ishaan Khatter and his performance is being appreciated worldwide!
Dhadak hit the screens on Friday 20th July 2018. The movie released on 2791 screens out of which 2235 were in India and the rest overseas. It became the highest opening newcomer movie!

Directed by Shashank Khaitan, Dhadak noticed a significant rise on Saturday as its total collections climbed to Rs. 19.75 crores. The flick began its theatrical run with Rs. 8.71 crores and went on to earn Rs. 11.04 crores on Day 2.
Apart from the box office collection, Dhadak is receiving applause for its amazing picturization and the cast’s outstanding performance.
According to the well known trade analyst Girish Johar, Dhadak has its pros which seem to work in its favour. He said the movie will earn around Rs. 6.5 crores on its opening day. It might be a little too much for a movie with a newcomer in the lead but Dhadak has three to four factors working in its favour. One, it is the Sridevi sympathy factor, second, Janhvi is making a debut with the movie, third, the film is a remake of Sairat which is already a blockbuster and last, it is a Dharma Production project.
Here is what Taran Adarsh said about Dhadak!

OMG! Ranbir Kapoor Sued By His Tenant!
The famous actor Ranbir Kapoor who is riding high with success, lands in trouble!
Amidst the success of Ranbir Kapoor’s latest film Sanju, the actor gets sued by his tenant for an amount of Rs. 50 lakhs.
According to a source, Ranbir Kapoor leased out his plush apartment in Trump Towers, located in Pune’s Kalyani Nagar, in October 2016. The actor got sued by the tenant for allegedly not honouring the terms of the rental agreement.
The tenant is Sheetal Suryawanshi, who had moved into the 6,094 square feets apartment after renting it on leave and license basis. According to the agreement, the license fee was decided at Rs. 4 lakhs per month for the first 12 months and Rs. 4.20 lakhs for the next 12. Over and above Suryawanshi paid a deposit of Rs. 24 lakh.
The case is filed in the Pune civil court, where Suryawanshi sought damages to the tune of Rs 50.40 lakh and interest of Rs 1.08 lakh. She stated that her family suffered ‘severe inconvenience and hardships’ due to the sudden eviction. According to her, 11 months after she moved in, she was asked to vacate the flat. She eventually moved out by the end of 2017.
With regards to the case filed, Ranbir denied all allegations and filed his responses in the court. The actor stated that Suryawanshi was not asked to vacate the flat because he was moving in, reproducing a portion of the leave and license agreement. The clause in the agreement states that the lock in period would be of 12 months and that the licensee (Suryawanshi) cannot terminate it, before said period. The actor added plaintiff cannot unilaterally change, modify or interpret leave and license agreement to suit her convenience.
Sheetal also alleges she was ‘maliciously deceived‘ by Ranbir Kapoor into vacating the apartment. The file states that in January 2018, she sent a notice to Ranbir but did not get a response.
Going forward, the case is scheduled to be heard next on August 28.
