Uri: The Surgical Strike hits the screens today and we are beyond excited to watch it. The actors of the film, Vicky Kaushal and Yami Gautam have been busy with the promotions of the movie and we sat them down to talk about the film in depth. It’s never easy to pay homage to our martyrs, but our hearts are filled with gratitude and respect for these soldiers who lost their lives protecting our country.

The real Uri incident happened two years and four months ago. What was it like reliving the horror? What emotions were felt during those moments? It feels like a really intense and  poignant film that will fill us all with a sense of respect for the fallen soldiers, and more, a sense of pride for our nation.

Vicky Kaushal and Yami Gautam were asked about the process of choosing their scripts and to be honest, they choose it quite wisely. Being a part of the army is no cakewalk, and having to make it into a film, immersing oneself into those particular characters, and then executing the action is a daunting challenge. Vicky and Yami talk about how they made a visit to Lucknow, where the incident happened. Watch the video below for details.

Vicky Kaushal, has in the past had hits like Raazi, Sanju and Manmarziyaan and Yami Gautam, films like Kaabil opposite Hrithik Roshan. We have a good sense that this movie will wow the audiences, not just for the real life story depiction, but also for the kind of passion the actors bring to the table.  Let us know what you all think.

[Exclusive Video] Was Why Cheat India preponed due to pressure from Shiv Sena? Emraan Hashmi reveals…

Emraan Hashmi reveals whether Why Cheat India was preponed due to pressure from Thackeray and Shiv Sena or not? Watch exclusive video interview to know more…

Emraan Hashmi and Shreya Dhanwantry’s Why Cheat India is all set to hit the screens this Friday (January 18). But before the film hits the screens, it has faced a lot of ups and downs. Why Cheat India was initially slated to release on the Republic Day weekend (January 25). However, with Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi and Thackeray releasing on the same day, the makers were in a fix. They decided to prepone the film by a week to get an open release, but reports are doing the rounds that Why Cheat India was preponed due to the pressure and threats by the makers of Thackeray and the members of Shiv Sena. To clear this speculation, we asked Emraan about this upfront and he made a really valid point.

In an exclusive interaction with us, Emraan revealed, “There was no pressure at all. It (the decision) was very amicable and you could see, we were sitting on the same dais, while we were having the press conference. They were gracious enough to take the Marathi release ahead and we got a clear week. We preponed because ours is a kind of experimental film, we’ve never dealt with such a subject before, so it was always a film that would start off slow and then grow. With an action film, it ticks all the boxes, but here, we are coming in with a new subject, so we needed that breathing space.”

Emraan was also concerned whether people know that Why Cheat India is coming out January 18. To know that he did a survey kind of interaction with people at the airport and the result was shocking. Check out our exclusive video above to know what Emraan Hashmi found out! Also stay tuned to Cine Blitz as we get you all the updates about Why Cheat India right here.

Exclusive! Rajkumar Hirani’s alleged sexual misconduct leaves Arshad Warsi shocked – read his full reaction here

Arshad Warsi talks about the allegations leveled against his Munna Bhai MBBS director Rajkumar Hirani and says it is difficult for him to believe what he is hearing

Actor Arshad Warsi, in an exclusive conversation with Cine Blitz, reacted to the allegations against Rajkumar Hirani regarding the sexual assault of a technician on the film Sanju. Arshad has worked with Rajkumar in one of his most loved film Munna Bhai MBBS. In the conversation with Cine Blitz, Arshad said, “If you ask me what I think about him, he is a gentleman, and it is hard to believe something like this about him. I have known him for so many years and I have never seen a wrong bone in his body, which makes this news very shocking and difficult to believe.” He also added “I am no judge to jump to any conclusions, I don’t know the person or her credibility and the details. It could be true or may not be true, and we need to go into the details to get to any conclusion.”

Rajkumar Hirani has been called out by a woman who has worked with him on his 2018 release Sanju. In an article in HuffPost India, the woman alleged that Hirani sexually abused her between March to September 2018 more than once. She even reported this to the co-producer Vidhu Vinod Chopra in an email dated November 3, 2018. After the article had spread over the internet, Hirani gave out a statement saying that he was shocked when the claims were brought to his notice. “I was completely shocked when these allegations were bought to my notice about two months back. I had suggested immediately that it is essential to take this matter to any committee or a legal body. The complainant has chosen to go to the media instead. I want to very strongly state that this is a false, malicious and mischievous story being spread, with the sole intention of destroying my reputation,” Hirani said in his statement.

Earlier today, Dia Mirza also came out in Hirani’s support. In the wake of the #MeToo movement, directors Sajid Khan, Vikas Bahl, actor Nana Patekar and music composer Anu Malik had to face the backlash of the movement and had to back out or were ousted from their respective projects. Rajkumar Hirani seems to be in the same boat, since Vidhu Vinod Chopra’s upcoming film Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga does not carry Raju Hirani’s name as co-producer any longer.
