Akshay Kumar , on Thursday, launched the trailer of Indias very own space mission film Mission Mangal with his team of space scientists including Vidya Balan Sonakshi Sinha Taapsee Pannu Kirti Kulhari , Nithya Menen, and Sharman Joshi.While the multistarrer is set to release on Independence Day, the film will be facing off with two films John Abraham s Batla House and Prabhas starrer Saaho.Speaking about the same at the trailer launch event, Akshay Kumar talked about why in future it will become a major problem with many films clashing at the box office. The actor said, In a year, more than 180 Hindi films release and then there are about 30 to 40 Hollywood films as well so there would be a lot of congestion. In the future, there will be more problems as maybe at that time four to five films may clash at the same time. There is no element of surprise in this and we should not blame anybody or blame each other and just go along with it. Mission Mangal is an incredible true story based on a Mars mission accomplished by a team of scientists at Indias Space Research Organization (ISRO). While we know who is playing which character, we are waiting to watch the trailer to see how this team comes together to achieve a seemingly impossible task of reaching Mars in Indias maiden attempt, making it the only country in the world to set this record. When asked why he encourages more patriotic films, Akshay said, If such a great script comes to me, how can I not be a part of it? There is such a great cast. Bringing five female actors together was such a difficult task. I had to do the film. Mission Mangal is based on a true story. This is director Jagans first film. I have known him for a very long time. He used to assist AR Murugadoss and R Balki too. He is the guy who brought the story to me and told me all about ISRO. I dont know if our film will be a hit or not, but as I have told all my colleagues, we will always be very proud of the film. I have done around 150 films, but this is the film I am most proud of, says Akshay Kumar. Backed by R Balki and Akshay Kumar, directed by Jagan Shakti, presented by Fox Star Studios, Produced by Cape of Good Films, Hope Productions and Fox Star Studios, Mission Mangal releases this Independence Day!

TheFilm Certificate Appellate Tribunal, also known as the Tribunal which viewed Kushan Nandys controversial Babumoshai Bandookbaaz earlier this week, has reserved its decision on the film until further notice. It is reliablylearntthat the Tribunal would ask the director to make some voluntary cuts before allowing the film to be released. SaysKushanNandy, I am not worried at all about what the Tribunal would order. I am much relieved and happy to know the Tribunal is a completely independent body from the CBFC. So whatever decision the Tribunal takes, we will be happy with it. Nandysays making this film has been one long struggle for him. The problems started when Chitrangda Singh opted out. But looking at what my replacement heroineBiditaBag has achieved with the character I can only say, whatever happens; happens for the best. The latest run-in with the censor has only been the latest in a long line of problems. But now that the release is around the corner I feel I am nearing the end of my troubles. The Tribunal is expected to upturn the CBFCs decision to make over 40 cuts in Babumoshai Bandookbaaz because thats what the Tribunal normally does.
Anxious inquiries from all quarters about the Thespian Dilip Kumars health has finally been answered by his wife Sairaji with a text message to this writer saying, He has improved. However close friends of the Thespian and his wife claim they are not allowed to visit or even inquire about his health. Says an entertainer who has known the couple for decades, Ive known them forever and was a constant visitor at their Pali Hill bungalow. But in recent years all my attempts to meet Yusuf Saab or even to know about his health has been stonewalled by his wife. Another source which knows the couple well says, Sairaji knows the end is near. She has given 50 years to him. Why would she want to share the closing phase with anyone else? I think all concerned well-wishers should let them be.
Actor Siddharth seems to have invited trouble from fans of Bahubali star Prabhas after the latter decided to joke about a certain hashtag on Twitter. His just kidding post seem to have heavily backfired after fans of the star lashed out on Siddharth by posting many comments on his Twitter post. It all started with post shared by trade analyst Ramesh Bala who posted, #100DaysToKingPRABHASBday The count-down has started.. Followed by that, Siddharth decided to mock the trend of long hash tags that are often used by fans and twitteratis on their favourite idols birthday. Giving his take on it, Siddharth responded, #465DayToKingPRABHASNextBdayAfterThisOne The countdown continues #HashtagsThrillButKillPleaseUseThemWithSomeDiscretion #Thanks https://twitter.com/hashtag/465DayToKingPRABHASNextBdayAfterThisOne?src=hash&ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw #465DayToKingPRABHASNextBdayAfterThisOne The countdown continues https://twitter.com/hashtag/HashtagsThrillButKillPleaseUseThemWithSomeDiscretion?src=hash&ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw #HashtagsThrillButKillPleaseUseThemWithSomeDiscretion https://twitter.com/hashtag/Thanks?src=hash&ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw #Thanks https://t.co/kLYRLi07E5 https://t.co/kLYRLi07E5 Siddharth (@Actor_Siddharth) https://twitter.com/Actor_Siddharth/status/1018741300206579717?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw July 16, 2018 This definitely didnt go down well with Prabhas fans who decided to troll him brutally over the jokes. While posted pictures of Burnol calling it a jealous move owing to the stardom that Prabhas has, some others called him insecure and malicious. Heres a glimpse of one of those comments posted by Prabhas fans: Is it your insecurity..sense of worthlessness..malicious..callous.. black heart pushed you to comment ? as I dont see any other plausible reason for this tweet..Oh & you want to get wishes on your birthday let us know your Dooms oh I mean D day we https://twitter.com/hashtag/Prabhas?src=hash&ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw #Prabhas fans are generous!

(@NishBrunel) https://twitter.com/NishBrunel/status/1018754247947628544?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw July 16, 2018 A few set of them, further went on to challenge Siddharth asking him to make such comments on other actors. Some of them stated that Prabhas fans have been too sweet with him for trolling him very subtly whereas if he made such comments about Thalapathy Vijay and Ajith, he would have faced the wrath of another set of aggressive fans. Can u tweet the same thing during Ajith,Vijay,rajini birthday trends. The very next minute u will leave twitter after tweeting Tom&Jerry ???? (@LovesTom_Jerry) https://twitter.com/LovesTom_Jerry/status/1018746775920709637?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw July 16, 2018 Day by day the https://twitter.com/hashtag/Hashtag?src=hash&ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw #Hashtag is becoming a joke I think people can laugh at a joke. Nobody needs to leave Twitter. Relax, take a deep breath and laugh at a joke. https://t.co/sK5ZYJHbTX https://t.co/sK5ZYJHbTX Siddharth (@Actor_Siddharth) https://twitter.com/Actor_Siddharth/status/1018747347004604416?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw July 16, 2018 Prabhas fans are too sweet to troll you for this.

He also mentioned about how the social media culture has gone to the extent of being abusive. How is that fun? Being abused by people is common on twitter. Social media culture and fan behaviour has gone to another level of abuse. Why should anyone be scared to make a joke? People need to get serious and angry about many serious issues; not about jokes! Jokers will joke:) https://t.co/hQ0naMFQ5o https://t.co/hQ0naMFQ5o Siddharth (@Actor_Siddharth) https://twitter.com/Actor_Siddharth/status/1018752918336356352?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw July 16, 2018 Well, it seems that this twitter trouble turned out to be quite unexpected to the actor who decided to just joke on the platform.
