Huma Qureshi, who was last seen in Akshay Kumar starrer Jolly LLB 2, is all set to woo the audience with her new web series titled Leila. The video streaming giant Netflix, today, announced the show and released a teaser of the same. Even Huma took to social media and shared the teaser with her fans. Though the video is hardly 25 seconds long, it’s quite impressive. Co-directed by the ace filmmaker Deepa Mehta, Shanker Raman and Pawan Kumar, the series will be available to the viewers globally from June 14 onwards. Leila also stars Siddharth, Rahul Khanna, Sanjay Suri and Arif Zakaria in important roles.

Based on a book written by Prayaag Akbar, the series is set in a dystopian future in a city that thrives on purity and the citizens live in a discriminated set up that considers caste, religion and class. The story is basically about a mother and her arduous journey to find her daughter. It’s the story of longing, loss and faith. The teaser, which is out, gives a sneak-peek into Leila’s world and it’s quite dark, intense and hard-hitting, just as you would expect a Deepa Mehta directorial to be. Huma as Shalini (mother) can be seen in a religious attire at the end of the teaser video. Since all the three directors on-board are associated with dark and intense drama, the same is very much visible in the teaser as well.

Shanker, who has worked as a cinematographer, is known for his last film Gurgaon which starred Pankaj Tripathi in lead. Pawan, on the other hand, is known for his Kannada films – Lucia and U-turn. As for Deepa Mehta, she needs no introduction as her film Fire starring Shabana Azmi and Nandita Das is already known to all. Anyway, now quickly watch the video and tell us what you think of Huma Qureshi’s Leila? Comment in the section below and stay tuned to CineBlitz for more Bollywood news and gossip.

We exclusively revealed to you how Soham Shah, Mahie Gill and team Fixerr were attacked by four goons on June 19. The ALTBalaji show was being shot in Thane, when the hooligans broke into the sets and ransacked their equipment. They even hit the team, so much so that the DoP had to get stitches and director Soham Shah had to consult a doctor. But why were they attacked? While things are still being ascertained, the director has shed some more light on the incident.

Talking to us exclusively, Soham Shah made a shocking revelation. He said, “This is what we’ve understood till now. There are two coordinators at the private property that we had booked, two location manager as we call them. There is this guy called Ranveer and there is another guy called Krishna and they used to work together earlier. Our production team had struck a deal with Ranveer and we had made all the payments and taken all the permissions from him as well as the police. We were shooting very peacefully, but then the attack happened. We now came to know that Krishna is actually his (Ranveer) rival. To show his power and monopoly, they attacked us. There saying is that if you want to shoot in Mira Road, Bhayander or Thane, you cannot do it without us. Pure hooligan mannerism!”

Well, if this is the case, every producer and artiste will be worried. Tomorrow anyone can be attacked! Our initial report about the attack and the fact that the police was allegedly favouring the goons had an impact too. The police has taken cognisance of the matter now and will investigate it further. In the meantime, stay tuned to CineBlitz for more exclusive Bollywood news, updates and gossip right here.

Hrithik Roshan’s sister Sunaina Roshan has been in the news since the past few days now. First because of fake reports of her ill health. And then, her allegations that her family has been harassing her. Yes, Sunaina had mentioned to a few publications and even tweeted how she is living in hell. She has allegedly been put on house arrest too. During the time, Kangana Ranaut opened up about how Sunaina has been a friend, but she doesn’t want to get into this controversy. Last night, Sunaina extended her support to Kangana and the actress’ sister, Rangoli Chandel, then tweeted out details of how the Roshans were allegedly torturing Sunaina. While Hrithik is mum about all the allegations, the actor’s ex-wife Sussanne Khan has spoken out.

In an Instagram post, she wrote, “As a part of my experience with all concerned and in my life span of being a part of this close knit family, I know Sunaina, to be an extremely loving warm, caring person, who is in an unfortunate situation. Sunaina’s father is undergoing a major health crisis. Her mother is herself vulnerable to say the least. Please respect a family’s tough period, each family goes through such times. I needed to say this as someone who has been a part of this family for long.” Check out her post right here:

Clearly, she did not react to the allegations. But she did shed some light on the family as well as Sunaina’s condition. We wonder if Hrithik Roshan will issue a statement or speak up about the matter too! Meanwhile, what do you guys think about this development?
