Mumbai, July 25 Filmmaker Nandita Das is excited that her upcoming directorial “Manto” will be screened at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF), where she last went with her directorial debut “Firaaq” a decade ago.

“Thank you TIFF, Cameron Bailey for making ‘Manto’ a part of your first selection. Just got to know! Can’t wait to be back in Toronto after 10 long years. Last time was for ‘Firaaq’,” Nandita tweeted late on Tuesday.

The movie, on the life of late Urdu writer Saadat Hasan Manto, will be screened as part of a Special Presentations section.

“Manto” follows the most tumultuous years in the life of iconoclastic writer Manto and those of the countries — India and Pakistan — which Manto inhabited and chronicled.

The film stars Nawazuddin Siddiqui as the writer, Rasika Dugal as his wife and Tahir Raj Bhasin, Rishi Kapoor and Divya Dutta in key roles.

Anurag Kashyap’s “Manmarziyaan” will premiere at the TIFF 2018, where “Hotel Mumbai” on the 2008 terrorist attacks on the Taj Mahal Palace hotel in Mumbai will also be screened.

TIFF will be held from September 6-16.

Pop star Justin Bieber is looking back at the time when he was arrested in 2014, and shared that he is not proud of that moment in his life.

In 2014, the singer, who was 19 at the time, was arrested on the suspicion of drinking under influence, resisting arrest and sitting behind the wheel without a valid license.

Now, the 26-year-old pop superstar took to Instagram late on Saturday to look back on getting arrested in 2014.

“7 years ago today I was arrested, not my finest hour. Not proud of where I was at in my life. I was hurting, unhappy, confused, angry, mislead, misunderstood and angry at god,” Bieber wrote alongside a photo of himself in handcuffs.

“I also wore too much leather for someone in Miami,” he joked, before delving into how he has become a better person.

“All this to say God has brought me a long way,” Bieber said.

“From then til now I do realise something.. God was as close to me then as he is right now. My encouragement to you is to alet your past be a reminder of how far god has brought you. Don’t allow shame to ruin your “today” let the forgiveness of Jesus take over and watch your life blossom into all that God has designed you to be,” he added in the post.
