Cast: Sara Ali Khan, Sushant Singh Rajput, Pooja Gor and Nitish Bhardwaj
Director: Abhishek Kapoor
Based on a love story that comes together in the light of a tragic life altering disaster, Abhishek Kapoor’s Kedarnath brings together multiple issues (love through religions and natural calamities to name a few,) weaving a beautiful tale toward the end. Centered around the cloud burst and the subsequent flash floods of 2013 in Uttarakhand, Kedarnath attempts at bridging the gap caused by religion in the wake of a natural calamity.
Mansoor Khan, a local porter (played by Sushant Singh Rajput,) falls in love with Mukku, a Hindu girl (played by Sara Ali Khan) visiting the holy temple of Kedarnath. While Mukku’s and Mansoor’s parents play the disapproving parents of children who fall in love despite all that is against them, Mansoor plays the man who proves that he doesn’t care about all the odds very obviously stacked against him.
With the devastating floods playing one of the key elements in this particular movie, the strong love between the two leads (with their own fair share of drama,) makes for the rest of the parts. As Sara Ali Khan’s debut film, Kedarnath could not have worked better in bringing out the best in her. Another point that works really well for this Abhishek Kapoor directorial is the fact, it proves love exists no matter what. In fact, one of the key points in this movie is the way Kapoor shows Muslim porters living in harmony in a town where Shiva is the main idol.
While Sara Ali Khan plays the girl who just cannot stop talking, Sushant Singh Rajput plays the role of an unconventional hero. With seasoned ease and skill, Sushant Singh Rajput shows us the many layers involved in a sensitive issue such as love between people belonging to different religions. Although Abhishek Kapoor seems to be constantly revising a story already told multiple times in the past, Kedarnath has its own positives in the way story is treated. While the story may be one which has already been told, the film is refreshing and is worth a watch!
Taapsee Pannu Replies To Kangana Ranaut’s Sister Calling Her Sasti Copy
Taapsee Pannu finally shared her opinion about Kangana Ranaut’s sister Rangoli Chandel calling her a “sasti copy” of her sister in a tweet. Rangoli Chandel’s tweet came after Taapsee failed to mention Kangana’s name while praising the trailer of the upcoming movie Judgementall Hai Kya. The 36 year old Chandel wrote on Twitter, “…they never acknowledge her (Kangana) not even a mention of her name in praising the trailer, last I heard Taapsee ji said Kangana needs a double filter and Tapsee ji you need to stop being a sasti copy.”
While talking to Mumbai Mirror, Taapsee Pannu said many of her friends wanted to speak up for her when Chandel’s tweet initially came out. However, she stopped them from reacting, in order to avoid giving any “mileage” to the sisters and not to get involved in war of words. The Manmarziyaan actress added, the sisters can not play the “nepotism card” against her as she struggled and worked hard to reach the position in which she is right now.
Taapsee further stated, “I didn’t know there was a copyright on curly hair, which I was born with, and honest opinions. I’m not going to apologise for it. As far as being “sasti” is concerned, Kangana claims to be the highest-paid actress, so I guess I am the “sasti” version.”
When asked about the situation at the Wakhra song launch for the movie Judgementall Hai Kya, Kangana had replied, “In an interview, Taapsee had said that ‘Kangana needs a double filter, when she doesn’t get work, she gives excuses of nepotism in the industry’. There is no harm in making fun of an individual. But one should also be ready to take such harmless digs in return. Why do they become thin-skinned when the other person takes a dig at them?”
Taapsee went on to explain about the time she said Kangana needs a double filter. Pannu stated she never meant it in a derogatory way and Kangana is an actor she admires. “We are both opinionated and speak our mind, which is a good thing except that sometimes it lands us in trouble. I had said it in a positive manner and not meant for it to be derogatory. In fact, I have often said Kangana’s an actor I look up to, my conscience is clear. It was weird to target me, that’s why it backfired,” Taapsee added.
Hats off to Taapsee Pannu for standing up for herself!
Koena Mitra Gets 6 Months Jail Time
Actress Koena Mitra, known for her appearance in movies like Ram Gopal Verma’s Road and Musafir, was sentenced to 6 months imprisonment by a metropolitan court in a cheque bouncing case. The actress was also instructed to pay Rs. 4.64 lakhs, of which Rs. 1.64 lakhs was the interest amount to be paid to the complainant, model Poonam Sethi.
Poonam Sethi filed a cheque bouncing complaint against Koena Mitra for “wants of fund” in 2013. However, the actress completely denied everything and is planning to contest the judgement. Mitra maintained, “The case is totally false and I have been framed in the matter. During the final argument, my lawyer could not be present in the court and hence my side was not heard and the order was passed without my hearing. We will be challenging the judgement in the higher court and my lawyers are in the process of appealing.”
Koena Mitra also claimed Poonam Sethi stole the cheques from her and misused them, as the model has no financial capacity to lend Rs. 22 lakhs. However, the court disregarded the actress‘s claim and observed the statement as being mutually contradictory.
According to the reports, the court observed, “Furthermore, in the present matter, said cheque is not dishonoured on the count of ‘payment stopped by drawer’. It is dishonoured on the count of ‘funds insufficient’. If at all, it is presumed that complainant took the cheques from the accused’s house, which was blank and misused them, then the option of stopping the payment was very well available with the accused. But she did not do anything like this. Thus, the conduct of accused prior and subsequent to the dishonoured of said cheque constrained me to hold that this defence is afterthought and taken only to evade the liability.”
The model stated Mitra borrowed an amount of Rs. 22 lakh over a period of time and the cheque bounced during the repayment of the loan. Mitra is in the process of appealing to a higher court.

Panipat – Kriti Sanon’s Role Details Out
Kriti Sanon is all set for her first venture into the period drama genre with the film Panipat. The details of her role in Panipat were recently revealed. Kriti Sanon will portray the role of Parvati Bai, who was the second wife of Sadashiv Rao. In the movie, Parvati Bai is a physician, who falls in love with Sadashiv Rao, played by Arjun Kapoor.
While speaking about her role, Sanon said, “My knowledge of history is terrible since I have never been fond of the subject. So for me, every word about the Battle of Panipat came from Ashu (Ashutosh) sir. Not too much is documented about Parvati Bai, so the character was built by Ashu sir in the way he visualised her. We had an amazing experience of finding the character. It’s a completely new world for me. Being a North Indian, it is a challenge to play a Marathi character, but Ashu Sir made it easy and very enjoyable.”
Sanon’s co star Arjun Kapoor made news for going bald and losing weight to prepare for his role as the Maratha warrior. This will also be Kapoor’s first period film and will see Kapoor and Sanon sharing screen space for the first time.
Panipat is a historical film based on the third battle of Panipat. Directed by Ashutosh Gowarikar, the movie stars Sanjay Dutt, Arjun Kapoor and Kriti Sanon in pivotal roles. The movie is slated to release on December 6th 2019.
