Gerard Butler in Angel Has Fallen

Angel Has Fallen witnesses Mike Banning (Gerard Butler) on the verge of becoming the head of the Secret Service when an assassination attempt nearly kills President Trumbull and implicates Mike as the man responsible. Desperate to uncover the truth, he turns to some unlike allies to help clear his name, keep his family from harm and save the country from imminent danger.

Producer Les Weldon, who has been with the Fallen series from the start, loves that as Banning is put under crushing pressure, it gives Gerard Butler more room to dive deep. Weldon united with fellow producers Butler, Alan Siegel, Matt O’Toole, John Thompson and Yariv Lerner for this installment. All were excited to see Butler bring a darker, harder edge to the beloved character while showing a new vulnerability—and keeping all the fun intact.

Watch the trailer of Angel Has Fallen:

“From the beginning, Mike Banning has been almost an extension of Gerry. They’re both dedicated, demanding guys, yet both have a really personable, emotional core,” observes Weldon. “That comes out even more in Angel Has Fallen and I think audiences will really connect with him. It’s very revealing to watch an incredible hero you’ve always seen chasing others, become the chased and desperate man.”

Angel Has Fallen also stars Morgan Freeman, Jada Pinkett Smith, Lance Reddick, Tim Blake Nelson, Piper Perabo, Nick Nolte and Danny Huston. The movie is directed by Ric Roman Waugh from a script by Robert Mark Kamen, and Ric Roman Waugh. For more news and updates from the world of showbiz stay tuned to CineBlitz!

Emraan Hashmi’s family

While on Sony Entertainment Television’s Kaun Banega Crorepati 11 for the Karamveer special episode with Purnota Dutta Bahl – who works to ensure proper nutrition for cancer affected underprivileged children –  actor Emraan Hashmi revealed how his son wouldn’t want to eat vegetables while taking chemotherapy sessions for seven whole months.

Then, Emraan and his wife devised a trick to make him eat knowing Ayaan’s immense love for superheroes, especially Batman. “It isn’t easy for a child to take chemotherapy. Naturally, he would throw fits in hospital and throw things and refuse to have food, which was much needed at that time for his immunity. When all our tactics to make him eat failed, to finally make him eat, I would go out of the hospital room and meanwhile, my wife would save my phone number as Batman and change my display picture to that of the Superhero. My wife would give the phone to him and I would convince him to eat as I know he wouldn’t refuse Batman ever. That’s how Ayaan gained proper nutrition during his time in the hospital,” Emraan said.

Supporting  Purnota, Emraan Hashmi says, “First of all I would like to thank KBC for bringing real life heroes on national television. I have been following Purnota’s work since many years because my son was diagnosed with cancer five years ago, and later my mother too became a victim of the disease. A family is emotionally devastated when somebody from that family is diagnosed with cancer. My son Ayaan’s remission phase – during which the cancer might make a comeback – was a tough phase for us as we parents go through a lot of fear psychosis. The whole process is psychologically disturbing. While researching about the disease, I got to know that nutrition plays an important role in the treatment as the body needs a strong immune system while going through the treatment. Even after the medical treatment, we have to focus on follow-up care, which involves proper nutrition and the well-being of a person,  which has been the focal point of Cuddle foundation.”

Mardaani 2 director Gopi Puthran clarifies on the Kota controversy

Gopi Puthran, writer-director of Mardaani 2, says, “Mardaani 2 addresses a huge societal issue of rape and the rise of horrific crimes committed by juveniles in India. One is deeply moved when such shocking incidents happen and as a writer, I wanted to voice this issue and bring to light a terrible reality that today’s India and its youth face. I was troubled by many, many incidents that took place across our country in the last four years and the complex nature of those crimes left me shocked and perplexed. As a human being, I felt fear after reading about these incidents because it could happen to my family or people that I know and I wanted to do my bit to make as many people aware of the threat posed by nameless, faceless, young and underage boys who are resorting to such violence.”

Mardaani 2 has been inspired by all such incidents that rocked the country and left us all scarred. Despite all the inspirations, Mardaani 2 at the end of the day is a film and not a documentary and it should be seen as that. Kota has been used by us as the setting for this film only. We are, in no way, suggesting that such events or incidents happen in Kota and there was no intention to tarnish the reputation of the city. If this has hurt or upset the sentiments of residents of the city, we are deeply regretful. We realize that since the trailer says it’s ‘Inspired By True Events’ and our film is based in Kota, it could be open to miscommunication. YRF has decided that we will remove the words ‘Inspired By True Events’ from the film to ensure that there is no further room for misinterpretation for anyone. We shot Mardaani 2 extensively in Kota and we only received love and warmth and huge cooperation from the people and all the authorities of the city. This gesture is YRF’s mark of respect to Kota and it’s wonderful people.”
