The trailer launch of Ali Fazal s colonial drama Victoria & Abdul would have been released this week if it wasnt for the Manchester terror bombings. Says Ali, The producers decided to set aside the trailer launch after what happened in Manchester. It didnt seem proper to do anything even remotely celebratory after the tragedy. Even more tragedy awaited Alis octogenarian co-star the legendary Judi Dench, who lost two colleagues in a row. First, it was Tim Piggot-Smith and now Roger Moore. Ms Dench had been part of many James Bond films, playing the mysterious M. Though she never worked with Roger Moore they were friends. With Tim, it was even more heart breaking for Ms Dench. Recalls Ali, We were working together in Abdul & Karim.We suddenly lost Tim. It was a big blow to Judi. She took it very personally. At her age losing loved ones becomes a sign of ones own mortality. And Tim was more than ten years younger to Judi. How could he go just like that?! Ali dismisses recent reports in the Indian press that Judi Dench planned to travel to India for the premiere of Victoria & Abdul.A report in a fantasy-happy tabloid jubilantly announced a flower-and-music Rajasthan welcome for the phenomenal British actress. Discernibly embarrassed Ali says, This is a flamboyant fabrication, not true at all. Such baseless reports should not come out. Judi is not travelling to India. At her age, it is not easy for her to travel so far. Rather I am travelling to the UK for the premiere in September. The venue has not been decided yet. But were most certainly having a big premiere. And Ill be next to my most favourite co-star. Ali feels Victoria & Abdul is an important film in his career. I feel blessed that this role fell into my lap. Its a character with so many shades. And I got to work with some of the finest talent of British cinema. Ali now turns director with a short film that he is currently working on.
The whole concept of humans being dressed as gods has time and again created trouble for films and this time around it is Tony DSouzas co-production Behen Hogi Teri that is facing legal issues on the same. In a poster of the film, Rajkummar Rao is seen dressed as Lord Shiva and it invited the wrath of the Hindu groups which has led to a warrant against the makers.

The makers that also included co-producer Tony DSouza were called to the Versova police station followed by the same.

The police have assured that there was nothing irregular in the matter that was observed and hence they have asserted to provide all assistance possible. Behen Hogi Teri stars Rajkummar Rao and Shruti Haasan in lead roles and is slated to release this week.

They say Uneasy lies the head that wears the crown. A perfect example to the same is life of the present chief of the Censor Board Pahlaj Nihlani. Being the final word in Bollywoods censorship, the hot seat in which Pahlaj Nihlani has been sitting has earned him many naysayers and agitators for being a man with strict dos and donts for the Hindi film-makers. The legendary actress of yesteryears Asha Parekh, who also happens to be the ex-chairperson of the CBFC (Central Board of Film Certification), recently spoke in Pahlaj Nihlanis defense. Speaking about the same, she said that while censorship wasnt an easy thing, Pahlaj Nihalani was only trying to do the right thing as per the guidelines that the government has provided him with. She also made a strong point by stating that, if at all anything was to be changed, then, it was the guidelines and not the censorship. Pointing out at the B and C grade films which come for certification, Asha Parekh said that, there were many who were unaware of the B and C grade films that came to the CBFC (for certification). She argued that, in the absence of Censor Board, such films would go scot free, which would be a definite bad situation. While Asha Parekh suggested about introducing the ratings system for Bollywood films, she pointed that the people of late have become very sensitive and start objecting to even the smallest of things. While she said that the censorship should start at home, she advised the parents of foregoing an A certified film if they couldnt leave their children at home.
