Makers of Simran saddened and angered by the groundless gossip around the film

1 August 2017 8:16 AM, PDT | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

Kangana Ranaut’s next release Simran, which is set to release on 15th September, has attracted a new rumour on the actress taking over the edit of the trailer for being unhappy by the first cut. The entire team who has been working hard on the film is very upset with the baseless rumours which are being made in a bad taste for the film.

Director Hansal Mehta sharing his thoughts on these rumours said, “All this speculation is false, malicious and totally fabricated. I collaborate closely with my team and my actors are an integral part of that collaboration. It angers me that every time some malicious gossip has to be spread people meaninglessly drag Kangana into their stupid machinations. She is a valued friend, actor and collaborator. Period. I’m even more hurt that some malicious person chooses to drag my relationship with Vishal Bhardwaj into this malice. »

This year’s Toronto International Film Festival still is over a month from kicking off, but the starry annual event is pulling out zero stops when it comes to its first official slate announcement. The festival will close out with Olivier Nakache and Eric Toledo’s “C’est la vie!,” and the Special Presentations section will open with Greta Gerwig’s directorial debut, “Lady Bird,” and close with Amr Salama’s “Sheikh Jackson.”

Today’s first glimpse of this year’s programing include a slew of 2017’s most anticipated features, including Guillermo del Toro’s adult fairy tale “The Shape of Water,” Alexander Payne’s Matt Damon-starring comedy “Downsizing,” Darren Aronofsky’s secretive “mother!,” George Clooney’s reportedly uber-violent “Suburbicon,” and Martin McDonagh’s “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.”
