After Kapil Sharma Irrfan Khan gets served notice by the Bmc

12 September 2016 8:34 AM, PDT | BollywoodHungama | See recent BollywoodHungama news »

It seems Kapil Sharma's tweet accusing the Bombay Municipal Corporation of bribery has set off a train of Bollywood-related accusations by the Bmc of alleged misdeeds. Right after Kapil impulsively tweeted with the bribe allegation against the Bmc, the Bmc struck back accusing Kapil of illegal construction on his property. Now it is another entertainer, actor Irrfan Khan's turn. Apparently, Irrfan, known to speak his mind fearlessly on all topics ranging from the politics of communalism to the antics of Bollywood stars, has been served a notice by the Bmc for illegal construction on his private property. Bollywood fears Kapil Sharma has unleashed a backlash by his rash tweet. Says a senior actor, "He should not have made such a grave accusation against the Bmc, and that too addressed to the Pm. I am not surprised that the Bmc reacted so quickly. Now I am afraid a lot »

Frightfest 2016: ‘Lost Solace’ Review

26 August 2016 12:10 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Lost Solace review: Features high levels of well-orchestrated, nail biting tension.

Lost Solace review by Awais Irfan at Frightfest, 2016.

Frightfest is underway now, and one of the many films looking to make an impression was sci-fi thriller Lost Solace. The film centers around a sociopath, Spence (Andrew Jenkins) – who seduces women and then steals their prized possessions. When he takes a new drug whilst out at a club, the absurd side-effects (fits, when he gets stressed) begin to take control and things quickly begin to quickly go awry for Spence as a result.

Whilst there are certainly elements of both the science-fiction and thriller genres at play here, Lost Solace is first and foremost a character piece at its heart. However, where director Chris Scheuerman falters is by not treating it as so. For starters, the viewer needs to find themselves invested in Spence’s character and feeling genuinely scared »

One More Quick Trailer for Ron Howard's 'Inferno' with Tom Hanks

10 August 2016 9:35 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"Only he can unlock the mystery. Only he can stop the unthinkable." Another new fast-paced trailer has debuted online for Ron Howard's adaptation of the other Dan Brown novel, Inferno, once again starring Tom Hanks as symbologist Robert Langdon. We've already seen a couple of different trailers for this movie already, and this new one tries to hype up the excitement of the story even more. The cast includes Felicity Jones as Dr. Sienna Brooks, Langdon's beautiful sidekick in this one, plus Ben Foster, Irrfan Khan, Omar Sy, Sidse Babett Knudsen, Ana Ularu, and Ida Darvish. As much as I have enjoyed reading the novels, this particular big screen version of Langdon's history-inspired, globe-trotting, solve-the-mystery thriller doesn't seem to be that exciting. Here's to hoping it's much better than it looks, only time will tell. Here's the latest official trailer (+ poster) for Ron Howard's Inferno, direct from Sony's »

New Inferno Trailer Unleashes An Extinction Event Like None Other

10 August 2016 9:26 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Robert Langdon, widely considered to be the world’s greatest mind, faces his gravest challenge yet in the latest – and seemingly final – trailer for Inferno, the third chapter in Ron Howard’s Da Vinci Code series.

Primed to stage one final hurrah for the divisive franchise, it is Rogue One: A Star Wars Story alum Felicity Jones that will join forces with Tom Hanks’ returning symbologist as Dr. Sienna Brooks, who scramble across Europe together in order to stop an extinction-level event that harbors some connection to Dante’s nine circles of Hell.

A race against time and a protagonist struggling with an unreliable memory are among the clichéd tropes to feature in today’s new teaser, which really begs the question as to whether Inferno is a movie sequel audiences demanded in the first place. Alas, money talks, as is often the case, and thanks to the combined $1.2 billion »

Hrithik Roshan was petrified about singing the National Anthem

5 August 2016 3:44 AM, PDT | BollywoodHungama | See recent BollywoodHungama news »

Though Hrithik Roshan sang the National Anthem like a breeze at the Pro Kabbaddi League finale, he admits he was very nervous that he might get the pronunciation wrong. Before Hrithik, Amitabh Bachchan and more recently, Sunny Leone has been pulled up by citizen groups for displeasing them with their rendition of the National Anthem. While Leone was wrapped on the knuckles for wrong pronunciation, Mr. Bachchan was publicly reprimanded for-believe it or not-rendering the Nation Anthem at a slower pace than permissible. Understandably, Hrithik Roshan approached our National Anthem with utmost caution and a handle-with-care attitude. Says Hrithik, "I was singing it for days in my head before the event. Just to get used to the pronunciation." With more and more Bollywood celebrities getting into trouble regarding political/national issues, there is a growing reluctance among high-profile entertainers to participate in national events.

Stream this in the summer: 'In Treatment'

2 August 2016 7:38 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

In my early days on the beat, NBC had an ad campaign encouraging people to watch summer reruns, promising, "If you haven't seen it, it's new to you!" In the age of Peak TV, that slogan seems less cynical than accurate. The rise of streaming services has put the bulk of TV history only a click or two away, which means that people are constantly discovering The Wire, or Arrested Development, or Terriers (sigh) for the very first time. In lieu of a summer rewind this year, I wanted to offer up primers of shows you can stream, whether an older series available in full(*) or something current you can catch up on before its next season begins. So far, I've done a few current shows in Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, Halt and Catch Fire, and Rectify, plus completed shows in United States of Tara and Flight of the Conchords.

While Kangna Ranaut and Irrfan Khan had announced a unique love story, an international production titled Divine Lovers, the deal did not materialize and the film had to undergo a few changes owing to the actress' date issues. And now Kangna is all to reunite with Irrfan for another film, which will be directed by The Lunchbox director Ritesh Batra. Right after Kangna's exit, rumours of a cold war between the actress and her co-actor Irrfan Khan started surfacing. However, putting an end to all those, it seems that we will finally get to see this unique pair playing a married couple on screen. From what we hear, Ritesh Batra's forthcoming directorial is about a husband and wife who get affected by a major real life incident that happened a few years ago.

Irrfan Khan tweets Indian politicians for appointment

20 July 2016 12:00 AM, PDT | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

We’re all aware of how politicians are active on Twitter in the times when social media has become an important part of people’s daily lives. For both the sides, the politicians and the people, it has proved to be a great way to communicate time and again.

So, when actor Irrfan Khan wanted to meet a few politicians to ask questions “as a common man” ahead of the release of his film Madaari, he decided to ask three of India’s most active Twitter-savvy politicians — Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, and Congress Party’s Vice-President Rahul Gandhi.

First, Irrfan tweeted Arvind Kejriwal and received prompt responses:

Next on his list was Rahul Gandhi, who also gave immediate replies, and meetings were supposedly fixed:

But when it came time to tweet the Indian Pm, he received the following reply:
