Arjun Kapoor starrer Indias Most Wanted will not release in Dubai!
A few days from now and we will see the release of the Arjun Kapoor starrer Indias Most Wanted.Based on the story of Indias Osama, the film revolves around a group of people who set out to apprehend the dreaded terrorist without any weapons. While the cast of the film and the makers have been promoting it in every way possible we hear that Indias Most Wanted will not release in Dubai. Apparently, the film is said to feature a dialogue that the censors in Dubai found rather derogatory and objectionable and have hence decided to not release it. Commenting on the same a source informs us, In Indias Most Wanted there is a dialogue that says most terrorists are based either in Pakistan or Dubai, and it was this reference that didnt go down too well with the censors there. Had this dialogue been deleted the film would be permitted to release, but the makers of the film did not budge and hence it will not release. Confirming the same Raj Kumar Gupta, the director of Indias Most Wanted says, Yes the film will not release in Dubai. There were some issues which could not be sorted and hence this decision. When prodded whether it was the said dialogue that caused the issue Raj Kumar Gupta added, Yes the said dialogue is there in the film and it is a factual one based on the research that has been conducted. So we did not want to do away with the dialogue and decided on retaining it in the film even if it entailed a non-release in Dubai. Coming back to the film, Indias Most Wanted that stars Arjun Kapoor is slated to release across 1200 screens in India later this week on May 24.

No Sridevi, no Mr India sequel, says Shekhar Kapur
Not again! Rumours and gossip about a sequel to the 1987 landmark motion picture Mr India which brought to viewers the concept of the invisible hero are nothing but unrealistic conjecture. When I got in touch with Shekhar Kapur asking if Anil Kapoor and he are collaborating on a sequel to Mr India , Shekhar responded, False alarm! A source close to Boney and Anil Kapoor says, There will never be another Mr India. Sridevi is gone. It is impossible to imagine Mr India without Sridevi. Even if Anil Kapoor was agreeable, Boney Kapoor who is the producer of Mr India would never dream of doing a sequel without his late wife. Sources say there is indeed a project brewing between Anil and Shekhar Kapur. But it is not Mr India 2.Anil and Shekhar have been planning a film together for the longest time. They are now looking at doing a web series together. As for Shekhar Kapurs involvement with the Mr India sequel here is Shekhars last word on the topic: I dont know what is happening with that project or what Boney Kapoors plans are. I was never going to direct the sequel. Now with Sridevi no more, the question doesnt arise.
Himachal High Court quashes sexual assault complaint against Jeetendra
In the midst of #MeToo movement, several industry names surfaced who were accused of sexual harassment, abuse, assault etc. Veteran actor Jeetendra was also named in a complaint when his cousin alleged that she was harassed in 1971 in Shimla. Now, Himachal Pradesh High Court has quashed the complained against the actor. The FIR, which was lodged on February 21 this year, was dismissed by Justice Ajay Mohan Goel on May 20, 2019. In the 26 page judgement, Justice Goel found credible the actors contention and that the complaint was mala fide as the complainants daughter was rejected during an audition for Balaji Motion Pictures Limited which is run by Jeetendra and his family. This lends credibility to the contention that the lodging of the FIR was an act of mala fide and a result of the daughter of his cousin having been rejected, the court said. It added that the contents of the complaint are vague. They lead to the conclusion that the allegations are so absurd and inherently improbable, on the basis of which, no prudent person can ever reach a just conclusion that there is sufficient ground for proceeding against the accused, the judge observed. The complaint which was filed in February this year stated that the assault took place in 1971 in a hotel room in Shimla. She claimed that the room had two separate beds and while she was sleeping, he allegedly joined the beds and tried to outrage her modestly. She claimed that the actor was drunk at the time. She claimed that the #MeToo movement encouraged her to speak against the abuse. At the time of the alleged assault, she was 18 and Jeetendra was 28.
