As the country gears up to fight against the severely horrible case against of the 8 year old girl from Kashmir, our Bollywood celebrities have decided to take a stand. For the good, this time. As always and again, our stars keep voicing their opinions on what’s been going on in the world. This time, they have stood for something that has left us far more scarred than even the Nirbhaya Case. Here’s what they have had to say about the Asifa Unfairness.
1. Javed Akhtar
Who was Asifa ? She was an eight years old daughter of Bakerwals. Who are Bakerwals ? A nomad tribe who when spotted the Kargil intruders promptly informed the army .Who are the people who are trying to protect the rapists of this little girl . ? Now it is your turn to answer.

How many more children like baby Asifa will be sacrificed at the intersect of religion & politics? How many more children will have to suffer unimaginable crimes before we wake up? I’m disgusted. It’s time for swift action. We owe it to Asifa and to humanity. #justiceforAsifa.

A 8 year old is drugged, raped & murdered and another one is fighting for justice for herself and the death of her father in custody.
We have a choice either raise your voice or be a silent spectator.

It’s moments like this when a clear choice must be made.
We can come together as a people to protect the lives and rights of our women & children
We can allow people to put personal agendas above law & humanity
What kind of nation do We want to be? #Justice #Kathua #Unnao

THEY are monsters, they drugged, raped and murdered a little girl. THEY are monsters, they defended the crime in the name of religion.

To starve, drug, rape and then murder an 8 year old child. Can’t believe this has happened. Sounds horrifying but imagine her horror when she went through it all. #JusticeforAsifa

15. Sanjay Dutt
We have failed as a society! Being a father, I am shaken and filled with anger reading about what happened to a 8 year old kid. My heart goes out to Asifa’s family. I refuse to accept we really let THIS happen. Justice has to be served NOW. #JusticeforAsifa

The cruelest form of evil is harming an innocent child. What is happening to the world we live in??? These people should be given the most severe punishment there is! Where are we heading as humanity?

Time to call them what they are: #PseudoHindus & #PseudoNationalists– the scum who use Hinduism and Patriotism as cover for bigotry and rape. let’s make this trend. #JusticeforAsifa #Unnao https://t.co/NLfUiteJQT

When a horrific incident like this happens in our Country like this happens, everyone unites to fight for the right. Despite being part of an educated and supposedly progressive world, when things like this happen, harsh reality cheques are issued. Unfortunately, we don’t seem to want to cash them.
Sanju Teaser Makes Ranbir Kapoor Stand Out. As Sanjay Dutt!
Bollywood’s original bad boy, Sanjay Dutt, has lived an off screen life so filled with drama, sorrow, happiness and violence that it could satiate just about anyone’s wildest dreams. Which is why, it makes all the more sense to have his life turned into one of the most awaited biopics of the season!
Tilted Sanju and starring Ranbir Kapoor in the lead, the makers of this movie just dropped the teaser and boy, does Ranbir Kapoor nail Sanjay Dutt or what!
— Rajkumar Hirani (@RajkumarHirani) April 24, 2018
The more than one-minute long teaser begins with Ranbir walking out of Yerawada Central Jail and continues with him narrating the different phases of Dutt’s life: his obsession with drugs at the age of 22, his days of leisure in the hotels of New York, him begging on the streets to the days he spent in prison. Out of his several looks the one where he is seen in the jail is the most compelling one as Ranbir aces Dutt’s mannerisms. Watch the teaser of Sanju here!
Written and directed by Rajkumar Hirani, the film will also feature Anushka Sharma, Paresh Rawal, Sonam Kapoor, Dia Mirza, Karishma Tanna, Manisha Koirala and Vicky Kaushal in pivotal roles. Sanju, the biopic is set to release on June 29, 2018.
Omerta Second Trailer Is Bone Chilling
Omerta, the latest offering from Rajkummar Rao and Hansal Mehta, is making the rounds for all the right reasons. The first trailer for the film dropped a while ago and while it was all things scary, the new trailer which just hit the internet is bone chilling.
— Rajkummar Rao (@RajkummarRao) April 23, 2018
If you thought the first trailer was enough to not let the kids sleep at night, then the second one keeps the adults up. The almost three minute long trailer opens with a shot of Rajkummar as Omar Saeed Shaikh torturing an individual. “You are conspiring to destroy the world, but I won’t let that happen,” he says. Afterwards, there is a montage of shots of the World Trade Centre collapsing, followed by other quick shots of crimes Shaikh has committed. Watch the trailer here.
Omerta is based on the life of British terrorist Omar Saeed Shaikh, who was responsible for the attacks on the Twin Towers, the 2002 kidnapping and murder of journalist Daniel Pearl in Pakistan, and the 2008 Mumbai attacks, among other heinous crimes. Already screened at a number of film festivals across the world, the film has gotten raving reviews already. Earlier scheduled to hit the screens on 20 April, 2018, Omerta is now going to hit the screens on 11 May, 2018.
Satyajit Ray: Remembering Him 26 Years After His Death
Filmmaker Satyajit Ray not only paved the way for a different portrayal of Indian Cinema but was also remembered as an inspiration to directors over the years. His films were so famous that even Christopher Nolan has gone on record to say Pather Panchali is perhaps the finest film ever made. On the occasion of his 26th death anniversary, here’s looking at some of his old and rare pictures which perfectly capture his essence!
Shahid Kapoor Gets Award For Excellence In Padmaavat
Shahid Kapoor on Saturday was awarded the Dadasaheb Phalke Award for Excellence (Best Actor) for his brilliant acting in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s period drama, Padmaavat.
Accepting the award, Shahid dedicated the win to his wife, Mira Rajput. Talking about the award he won on Saturday, Shahid said, “This is my first award for Padmaavat this year, so I am really very happy and I would like to dedicate this award to my wife, Mira because she tolerated me for a year during this period and without her I wouldn’t have been able to do this film. So I am very thankful to her.”
Parmanu Controversy Turns Uglier
Bollywood films have had a huge tug of war with release dates ever since the Padmaavat Controversy. While some movies are looking at releasing on a different date to avoid clashes, others have their release issues due to creative differences.
The current scenario between John Abraham and KriArj Entertainment’s Prernaa Arora over their film Parmanu – The Story of Pokhran is quite ugly. John Abraham took the legal route and filed separate complaints about cheating, breach of trust, defamation and offences under the Information Technology Act. Parmanu has been delayed a lot since December and after debating on several dates, the producers have now come to the terms to release the film on 28 May, 2018.
According to the recent reports, the legal notice was sent to KriArj Entertainment, Essel Vision, John Abraham’s JA Entertainment and Vashu Bhagnani’s Pooja Entertainment by Delhi based firm on behalf of Gothic Entertainment. The report claims that the production had paid a sum of Rs 12.25 crore for multiple films production including Parmanu – The Story of Pokhran. As the producers Prernaa and John were fighting over monetary issues in Bombay High Court, this production company’s name never popped up.
Directed by Abhishek Sharma, Parmanu – The Story of Pokhran stars John Abraham, Diana Penty and Boman Irani, the film is an ode to the Indian army and scientists, who although ordinary people, truly accomplished extraordinary feats in the face of adversity. It salutes, celebrates and truly embraces the slogan: Jai Jawan Jai Vigyan. While the premise of the film is based on true events, the characters are fictitious.
