Apurva suggested I take credit for dialogues in ‘Simran’: Kangana

Published

on

Mumbai, Aug 8: Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut sought to dispel the controversy over the writing of the story and dialogues for upcoming film “Simran”, saying it was actually writer Apurva Asrani who suggested she take credit for the dialogues.

Kangana was speaking at the trailer launch of the film here on Tuesday and clarified that Apurva has been given his due credit.

“First of all I want to make it clear that there are no dues pending. Somehow people make it look like Apurva has not be given his credit, that is not true. We made the contract exactly the way he wanted it to be, in fact, Apurva is the one who suggested me to take additional credit for dialogue writing. So we made the contract that way,” the “Queen” actress told the media.

She added: “After ‘Rangoon’ failed and some people attacked me, he decided to write the note and said what he wanted to say which I found in very bad taste. He has got the credit he wanted and there is no issue.”

The controversy erupted after the poster of the film released showing Kangana’s name as co-writer. Apurva took to Facebook to raise objection to it and slammed the actress for taking undue credit.

Director Hansal Mehta and producer Bhushan Kumar were also present at the event.

While giving a little insight on her character in the film, she said: “Though my character, Praful Patel, is a girl who works in a housekeeping department, she has big dreams and ambitions. She always fights for her rights and she is unstoppable. There is a similarity between her and my personal life.”

The actress went on to say: “This is unfortunate that in every step of my life I had to fight for my right. And I have been doing that all my life. It is okay if you call me a fighter or a rebel, this is how I am. I do not take offence on those names but I will stand for my right, be it by fighting or in any other way.”

The film is set to release on September 15.

Joe Jackson hospitalized, in final stages of terminal cancer

Los Angeles, June 23: Joe Jackson, father of Michael, Janet and the performing family, and architect of The Jackson 5, is in the final stages of terminal cancer, a source close to the situation confirmed to Variety.com.

Family members, including his wife Katherine, are said to have visited him in the hospital this week, reports the website.

Jackson, 89, has suffered from a variety of ailments in recent years, including dementia, strokes, and at least one heart attack, according to reports. He was injured in a car accident a year ago.

The famously headstrong Jackson, the father of 11 children, drove his performing family hard and at times subjected them to physical and mental abuse; the original Jackson 5 included sons Jackie, Tito, Jermaine, Marlon, and Michael, although younger sibling Randy also performed with the group and daughters LaToya, Rebbie, and, most famously, Janet also released albums.

Over the decades, Joe has had a contentious relationship with many family members, including Michael.

The Daily Mail claims that Jackson’s “handlers” had barred certain family members from visiting him, which son and former Jackson 5 member Jermaine spoke about to the paper.

The Jackson family patriarch has lived in Las Vegas for several years. One of his most recent public appearances was at the BET Awards in 2015, attending with his daughter Janet as she accepted the ultimate icon award. That same year, he suffered a stroke that reportedly left him with temporarily blurred vision.
