Kangana Ranaut explains why she opted out Anurag Basu's 'Imali'

Mumbai: Actor Kangana Ranaut has opted out of filmmaker Anurag Basu's next "Imali" as she wants to focus more on her directorial venture. The project, which will also feature Rajkummar Rao, would have marked her third collaboration with Basu after her debut "Gangster" and "Life in a Metro". The actor said "Imali" was supposed to go on floors in November 2018 but she had to direct and reshoot "Manikarnika", so the film was pushed. "Anurag and I have spoken about it. I feel extremely bad because 'Imali' was giving me an opportunity to work with my mentor again, but I'm...

Rapper’s delight

Though both the film and the song were hit, the four lines, “Watch on watch on watch on / Watch this dup dup dup style / I’m gonna dip dip dip it in your smile / Hold me baby just hold my hand forever and ever” might possibly be the most misunderstood and mispronounced (some intentionally) English lyrics till date. Jassie Gift was definitely not the only rapper or...

Film was shot long ago: Ajay Devgn

Ajay Devgn will soon be seen in an upcoming rom-com, featuring Rakul Preet Singh and Tabu. At the trailer launch of the film, what stuck most is the inclusion of veteran actor Alok Nath in the film. But Ajay was quick to clarify that the film was shot much before the scandal broke out. For the uninitiated, several actors had levelled allegations of harassment against Alok Nath after Vinita Nanda claimed she was sexually violated 19 years ago by the actor. While the industry has largely stayed away from working with actors who were under MeToo scanner, Ajay says, “This...
