Mumbai, Dec 1: Actress Kangana Ranaut, who is gearing up for the release of her forthcoming film “Manikarnika – The Queen of Jhansi”, says that actors get an unnecessary attention and importance in the film industry.

Kangana was interacting with media at the 25th anniversary of Swiss Watchmaker brand Chopard where they unveiled their ‘Happy Sport Collection’ on Saturday, here.

“Manikarnika – The Queen of Jhansi” which is in its post-production stage is now facing the wrath of a section of the crew which is upset that their dues, which had been promised by October, still remain unpaid. The workers then decided to approach FWICE (Federation of Western Indian Cine Employees) to seek its help.

Reacting on the issue, Kangana said, “It’s very sad. I have always opposed such kind of practices. There are doubts that labourers and technicians in the film industry are really devalued. I don’t know why actors only get an unnecessary attention and importance in the film industry and because of that, I also want to be a technician.”

“I feel they are absolutely devalued. I want to venture into direction and writing as these people are unsung heroes of the film industry.”

Kangana added that issues like non-payment of dues cannot be tolerated.

“When such things happen with labourers, it can’t be tolerated but I have been promised by the makers of the film that there is no such thing like that. They told me that they have a dispute with a vendor and they are doing a negotiation with him because they don’t think they should pay as much he is demanding,” she said.

Kangana added that she warned makers of the film that she will not promote the film if they won’t be able to solve the issue.

“I warned the makers of the film that if such thing will happen then I am going to disassociate with this film even though I have given 300 days of my life to it.

“I told them that I will not go for any promo launch and I will make sure that I will not promote the film even if one labourer’s money has been stuck but they told me to calm down on this issue so, I don’t things such an issue can happen on a film like this. Zee Studio is very big studio and they have a good reputation so, I am sure that there will be no complaints from our end,” said the actress.

“Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi” is a historical biographical film based on the life of Rani Laxmibai of Jhansi It is directed by Krish and produced by Zee Studios in association with Kamal Jain and Nishant Pitti.

Kangana plays Rani Laxmibai. The film is scheduled to be released on January 25.

Mira-shahid

Mumbai, Jan 19: Actor Shahid Kapoor says he and his wife Mira have a different approach when it comes to parenting. He says she tells him to calm down a bit when it comes to their two children, while he feels she is “too casual”.

Shahid opened up about his married life, parenting, his film career and more on an upcoming episode of “Famously Filmfare Season 2”, to go live on Colors Infinity, Colors Infinity HD, Voot and Jio on Sunday, read a statement.

On being asked if being protective about his children was a ripple effect of his parent’s separation, Shahid said: “My wife tells me that I am a little obsessive and protective and that I need to calm down a little bit. I tell her that she is too casual. Having said that, we try and find the middle ground which I think is good for the kids because you need to have both types of parents.

“If both are too obsessive or both are too careless I don’t think that works, so you need to find that balance.”

Shahid and Mira got married in 2015. They have a daughter named Misha and son named Zain.

Moving away from centrestage is heartbreaking for any actor: Abhishek Bachchan

Mumbai, Jan 19: Actor Abhishek Bachchan’s last few movies before his sabbatical that ended with “Manmarziyaan” were majorly second leads in big budget movies. He says it’s heartbreaking for any actor who has been at centrestage to move away.

Asked how much of a problem it is to stand behind a bigger star, he told filmmaker and “Koffee With Karan” host Karan Johar: “It is heartbreaking to any actor who has been centrestage to be shadowed by another actor in the lead.”

“The industry is a brutal place. I don’t think anyone is entitled to say that I am who I am so I deserve this. No, you have to earn it. Moving from centre to left is heartbreaking but you have to use that hurt to inspire yourself to get back into the centre again.”

In the upcoming episode of “Koffee with Karan”, to be aired on Star World on Sunday, Abhishek was joined on the couch by his sister Shweta Bachchan Nanda, a statement said.

Last year, Abhishek was seen in “Manmarziyaan”, which came two years after he featured in “Housefull 3”. He says his sabbatical from the industry was a result of a self-realisation about complacency towards his work.

Karan asked Abhishek: “Is there a reason you took this backseat from cinema, did you feel the pressure of what was happening in your career, that’s why?”

Abhishek replied: “It’s tricky Karan. I don’t think it was the pressure of what was happening. Rather it was more about my approach towards my work which I thought was incorrect. I was becoming very complacent and comfortable.”

“To call a spade a spade, I was part of huge films, huge budgets, huge stars, huge collections, everything was hunky dory. I had no pressure on me because I was standing behind somebody else who takes all the pressure. I was making lots of money and so were those films…it became very easy. I didn’t come to industry to stand behind anyone,” he added.
