Hindi Medium actor Saba Qamar breaks down while talking about the humiliation she faces due to her Pakistani origin

via Bollywood Hungama http://ift.tt/2mQFgwO The country of Pakistan has produced some great artists and sportspersons who have huge respect across the world. But Pakistan is accused of sponsoring terrorism and harbouring some of the most dangerous terrorists of the world. A recent statement of United States of America president Donald Trump threatening to cut off financial aid to Pakistan has dealt a further blow to this country. A consequence of these allegations and defending terrorists is that that the creative and sports personalities face a tough time when they go abroad.Popular actress Saba Qamar has faced the brunt of it when she went last year to Tbilisi, the capital of the European country of Georgia, to suit the promotional track ‘Suit Suit’ from Hindi Medium. At the airport, she was detained due to her Pakistani citizenship while the rest of the crewmembers, who were all Indians, were allowed to go. Saba Qamar spoke about it in a talk show in Pakistan and she broke down whi…

Senior advocate Harish Salve fought the case on behalf of Padmaavat makers and he made it clear that banning a film is akin to destroying federal structure and hence a very serious matter.

Aamir Khan or SS Rajamouli? Race to make a film on Mahabharat begins

via Bollywood Hungama http://ift.tt/2mQCuIe There are at least two iconic figures of Indian cinema planning to bring movie versions of the great Hindu epic the Mahabharat to the silver screen. While Aamir Khan is already planning to go on the floors next year and make at least 5 films based on various episodes from the Mahabharat, S S Rajamouli, the helmer of India’s most expensive and successful franchise Baahubali, is toying with various ideas on the Mahabharat and how to take it forward.Says Rajamouli, “I don’t think I will be getting into the Mahabharat for a while, not right away anyway. It requires a whole lot of planning. I need to know which parts of the Mahabharat I want to film. It’s not something I can get into right away. If Aamir Khan is doing it I am sure a great deal of planning must have gone into it. I am sure he will do full justice to it.”Rajamouli feels the Mahabharat would be a game-changer in Hindi. “In Telugu cinema there have been some very successful big-scree…
