This new upcoming rom-com serial looks different, right from its first episode. The serial has a quirky name Pyar ke Papad. The TV serial doesn’t feel like an regular Hindi soap,  with dramatic music and repetitive dialogues. It seems to have a simple approach towards the characters of the serial, and looks relatable too. As per the producer, it took almost nine months to select the cast and it was the longest procedure. Though the lead Aashay Mishra is debuting with this serial, he has been seen in many commercials previously.

Aashay shares with us the story of his struggle which went on for three years of just auditions, bur resulting in no breaks in Bollywood. The debutant revealed that he also auditioned for the upcoming Hindi drama film titled The Sky is Pink. The film stars actress Priyanka Chopra, Farhan Akhtar and Secret Superstar Zaira Wasim. Though the TV debutant regrets not getting selected for that film, he is quite happy with this opportunity to be part of the television world. But he  still looks forward to landing Bollywood roles in his career.

The story of Pyar ke Papad is set in the city of Kanpur, where religious beliefs and modern relationships are finding a middle ground to happiness. This show is a rib-tickling journey of an orthodox father who decides to take fate in his own hands, when his daughter falls in love with a man from another caste. Produced by Panorama Entertainment, the show cast comprises Akhilendra Mishra, Swardha Thigale and debutant Aashay Mishra, who plays the protagonist who bears the brunt of his would-be father-in-law’s disapproval. It will start airing on February 18 on Star Bharat channel, and it will be interesting to see if the simple approach remains constant throughout the story or if they succumb to different demands depending on their ratings.

Malakia Arora took to Instagram recently posting some pictures of her summer night rendezvous with her girl gang led by Kareena Kapoor Khan. Looked like the girls were enjoying a late night terrace party. The post with Kareena was captioned: “Summer nights…… #bebo♥️#ammusterrace”. The second post saw the duo with some of their friends with the caption “Summer nights …. terrace nights #bebo#ammusrerrace”.

The two seemed to be almost twinning in jeans-and-tank-top ensembles with Kareena wearing a pair of distressed denims and a black Adidas bodysuit, paired with black heels. Malaika took a more retro spin on the classic pairing and wore long bell-bottom jeans and a red Gucci bodysuit. The two looked glamorous as ever as they posed together.

Ajay Devgn feels ‘singled out’ after Tanushree Dutta – Rangoli Chandel lash out – read official statement

After Tanushree Dutta’s open letter, Ajay Devgn feels he is being targeted

Ajay Devgn

Tanushree Dutta talking about Ajay Devgn and his choice of working with Alok Nath even after knowing that he was called out in the wake of the #MeToo movement in India has dominated the headlines since yesterday (April 18). Today (April 19), Ajay Devgn issued a statement regarding the same. While on it, he also expressed his grief about people trying to single him out as being insensitive.

Ajay Devgn who will next be seen in De De Pyaar De, issued a statement this morning and cleared the air around the accusations of helping Alok Nath make a comeback to the industry. According to him, his stand is very clear and he still won’t support anyone who cannot respect women. At the same time he also expressed how sad he feels about people trying to single him out, and said, “

When the entire #MeToo Movement happened, I along with many of my film industry colleagues categorically expressed that I respect every single woman at the work place and I would not stand for any unfairness or atrocity against them.  Nothing about my stand has changed.

“Coming to the question of having worked with Mr Alok Nath in my upcoming film De De Pyar De, here I must put certain things in perspective.

“This film was supposed to be an October 2018 release. The shoot of the film got over by last September. The portions with Mr. Alok Nath were canned by August in Manali. The said portions were shot over 40 days across various sets and an outdoor location with a combination of over 10 actors. By the time the allegations came out (in October 2018) the actors in the film including me had already started work on other films.  It would be near impossible to get all the dates and combinations of the several actors in the film and attempt a re-shoot with some other actor replacing Mr Nath. It would also have been a huge monetary loss for the producers.  Everyone is aware that film-making is a collaborative process.  The decision to replace Mr Alok Nath could never have been mine alone. In this case, I would have to go with the joint-decision of the entire unit.  Not to forget, I could not have brought the entire combination of actors back or put up sets again for a 40-day re-shoot because this would mean doubling the budget, which again wasn’t my call to make.  It would have to be the call of the makers. Had circumstances played out even slightly differently, I would have pushed for a different combination of actors. Unfortunately, this was not to be.”

“I reiterate I am extremely sensitive to the #MeToo movement. But when circumstances are beyond me, I don’t see why an attempt is being made to `single’ me out as being insensitive. This is untrue.”

About having an option to replace Alok Nath, according to Ajay the shooting of the film was already done in September and the accusations were made in October. As it was a cast of 10 people it was impossible to bring them together and reshoot with someone else.

Alok Nath was accused of rape and sexual harassment by writer Vinta Nanda during the #MeToo movement. For more updates and gossip about Bollywood, stay tuned to CineBlitz.

Sonakshi Sinha has played some strong characters in her previous films, but her role in the film Lootera has been the highlight of her acting career. Her latest film Kalank is a multi-starrer with Alia Bhatt, Varun Dhawan, Sanjay Dutt, Aditya Roy Kapur and Madhuri Dixit in the lead roles. And while her performance is being appreciated, Sonakshi is being called out for the less screen space in the film.

When asked about having lesser screen time in Kalank, she shared, “A beautiful and strong role has come to me after a long time; probably after Lootera. I was so happy to be part of this film only because of the kind of world Abhishek (director Abhishek Varman) has created and the people I got to work with. Such fine actors! Every character has a contribution in taking the story forward. I think that was the most special part. The entire experience was just surreal.”

Further continuing her views about the screen space for a film she shared a very interesting point, “If George Clooney had complained about Brad Pitt getting more screen space, we would never have had Ocean’s Eleven.” Kalank is getting mixed reviews from the critics and fans are enjoying the film so far. The film was released on April 17. For more such updates stay tuned to CineBlitz.
