Jabariya Jodi: Heres why Sidharth Malhotra had sleepless nights whilst shooting the film
Sidharth Malhotra is all set to reunite with his Hasee Toh Phasee co-star Parineeti Chopra.The two actors have already started filming their next, Jabariya Jodi , a unique film based on pakadwa shaadi, that is forcibly getting the groom married. Sidharth is expected to essay the role of a thug with Parineeti as his childhood love interest. While their chemistry in recently released posters is a talk of the town, the actors too have decided to put in their 100 percent for the film. So much so that Sidharth has gone sleepless for 48 hours, albeit for a scene. It seems that the makers were supposed to shoot for a sequence where Sidharth Malhotra was supposed to faint due to tiredness. However, they were not keen on adding only makeup to the scene and wanted more credibility. They decided to shoot the scene in the night to showcase tiredness but the actor went another step ahead for this. Sidharth, in fact, ended up not sleeping for 48 hours in order to get the look of tiredness and to add authenticity to the scene. If sources are to be believed, the actor kept himself awake for two days before shooting that scene to get the required results whilst the entire unit slept. Amidst many actors who have gone to extensive lengths to prep for their respective characters, heres another example that was set by Sidharth only for a single scene in the film. Coming to Jabariya Jodi , the film is shot in Lucknow and in locations around like Malhaur, Barabanki and Malihabad. The makers are planning to recreate Bihar in these locations since the story set against that backdrop. Not too long ago, we even spotted Sidharth and Parineeti enjoying the authentic Litti Chokha [Bihari delicacy] in Lucknow. Produced by Ekta Kapoor and Shailesh Singh, Jabariya Jodi is directed by Prashant Singh.

He even said that public in general is pretty outraged with this and have told him that they would have cut their daughter up if she would have done such a thing but then he said that it is her life and he would not interfere but sure maintain his distance from Jasleen and Anup. He said that he would ask them some questions after they come out of the house. In the house, Jasleen and Anup have chosen to sleep on separate beds but their equation is that of a couple. All said and done they are one of the powerful contestants in the house. Stay tuned for more updates on Bigg Boss.

Chandraprakash Dwivedis Mohalla Assi starring Sunny Deol and Sakshi Tanwar to release on November 16
The wait ends, as Sunny Deol and Sakshi Tanwar starrer Mohalla Assi helmed by filmmaker Dr. Chandraprakash Dwivedi will finally have its theatrical release on November 16 this year. The film was cleared with A certificate after a prolonged legal battle with CBFC causing delay in the release of the film for over two years. The announcement was made with a motion poster released on social media today. Those who are not aware of the backstory, the hurdle for the makers began when the application for certification of the film was submitted to Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) in March 2016. The Revising Committee of the board, however, had refused to issue a certificate for exhibition of the film stating that the form and content of the film were highly derogatory of humans, culture and religion, including but not limited to mythology and was laden with abusive, explicit content. They also stated that the makers are misusing the freedom of expression. Producer Vinay Tiwari then appealed to the Film Certification Appellate Tribunal (FCAT), which in November 2016, directed the producer to carry out 10 cuts/modifications and resubmit the film for its consideration. Contending that the FCAT order had a damaging effect on the theme of the movie, Tiwari challenged it in Delhi High Court through a writ petition. Thirteen months of appearing in court and 11 hearings later, they reserved a certificate. Presented by Crossword Entertainment in association with Wisdom Tree Productions, Mohalla Assi is based on Kashi Nath Singhs book Kashi Ka Assi that dissects the politically-charged events of 1990 and 1998, including the Ram Janmabhoomi issue and the implementation of the Mandal Commission. The film comprises of a stellar ensemble cast with Ravi Kishan Saurabh Shukla , Mukesh Tiwari and Rajendra Gupta among others.
