New Delhi, Sep 24 : Distinguished actor Amitabh Bachchan will be honoured with the prestigious Dadasaheb Phalke Award.

The government award is India’s highest honour given in the field of cinematic art. Bachchan will be honoured with the award for inspiring generations with his diverse work.

“The legend Amitabh Bachchan who entertained and inspired for two generations has been selected unanimously for Dadasaheb Phalke Award. The entire country and international community is happy. My heartiest congratulations to him,” Union Information and Broadcasting Minister Prakash Javadekar wrote on Twitter while announcing the news on Tuesday.

Bachchan has successfully transitioned from Bollywood’s “Angry Young Man” to the “Shahenshah” of popular cinema, and gone onto become Indian film world’s most recognised icon on the global stage, through a career spanning over five decades.

The actor started his journey in showbiz as one of seven protagonists in “Saat Hindustani”, and then went on to feature in the Rajesh Khanna-starrer “Anand”. Once he got noticed in Prakash Mehra’s 1973 hit, “Zanjeer”, there was no looking back. The film also marked the birth of his Angry Young Man avatar.

Amitabh Bachchan means different things to different fans. Some remember him as the towering lead in films like “Deewaar”, “Zanjeer”, “Don” and “Sholay”, while some appreciate his nuanced, National Award-winning portrayals in “Black”, “Paa” and “Piku”. There are fans who celebrate him for his comic timing, while others swear by his intense screen presence.

From touching the pinnacle of stardom to facing failure to his days of bankruptcy and to bouncing back in the game and seeing a meteoric rise — Big B, as Bollywood and fans fondly call him, has seen it all.

His last release, Sujoy Ghosh’s thriller “Badla” has been declared a superhit by the trade.

His upcoming projects include “Chehre”, “Gulabo Sitabo”, “Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy”, “Brahmastra” and “Aankhen 2”.

As the news of Bachchan’s latest glory spread, members of the film fraternity rushed to congratulate the icon.

“The most inspiring legend of Indian cinema. He is a bonafide rock star. I am honoured and proud to be in the era of AMITABH BACHCHAN! The prestigious #DadaSaheb Phalke Award to Amitabh Bachchan,” filmmaker Karan Johar tweeted.

Calling Big B a legend, actor Anil Kapoor wrote on Twitter: “There is no mention of Indian cinema without this Legend! He has redefined cinema with every role and deserves every accolade for his innumerable contributions! Congratulations.”

Filmmaker Madhur Bhandarkar tweeted: “Congratulations to the legend for the prestigious Dadasaheb Phalke award. You have entertained, inspired generations with your exhilarating Performances. Wishing you more success and happiness.”

Bharti Singh Haarsh Limbachiyaa

A Mumbai court on Monday granted bail to comedian Bharti Singh and husband Haarsh Limbachiyaa in a drugs case. The couple, who was arrested by the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) following the seizure of ganja from their house, was sent to judicial custody till December 4.

While Bharti was arrested on Saturday, Haarsh was taken into custody on Sunday. The NCB told the Esplanade court that the two have confessed to consuming ganja. Singh is said to have told officers that she would smoke weed procured by her husband. Limbachiyaa said that he purchased ganja from one peddler and that he would keep one bag of the contraband at his office and another at his house for consumption.

Search operations were carried out at the couple’s properties following a tip-off. The NCB recovered a bag with 65 gram of ganja from Limbachiyaa’s production house in Versova. Later, another search was carried out at his residence, Oberoi Springs in Andheri, from where another bag consisting 21.5 gram of cannabis and unaccounted cash of Rs 1.49 lakh were seized.

NCB officials said they had recently arrested a 21-year-old man from Khar Danda area, who was allegedly involved in drug trafficking. During his interrogation, names of Singh and Limbachiyaa had come up, after which raids were carried out at their residence, said an NCB official.

Singh and Limbachiya have been booked under sections 20(b)(ii)(A) (involves small quantity of drugs) and 8(c) (possession of drugs) and 27 (consumption of drugs) of the NDPS Act.

Singh, who has appeared in several popular television comedy shows, currently hosts another comedy show named Khatra Khatra Khatra with her husband.

Bigg Boss 14 Salman Khan

After Weekend Ka Vaar episodes with Salman Khan, Bigg Boss 14 is once again ready for the nominations of the week. Like last week, this week also six contestants will be nominated for eviction. And since Kavita Kaushik is the new captain of the house, she will have a special power to save one contestant and nominate the other.

Of what may come as a shock for many, Kavita has reportedly saved Eijaz Khan from elimination and nominated Aly Goni in his place.

On Monday, Bigg Boss will initiate the nomination process wherein six contestants – Jasmin Bhasin, Eijaz Khan, Rubina Dilaik, Rahul Vaidya, Pavitra Punia and Abhinav Shukla will be nominated for elimination.

For the uninitiated, the nomination process looks similar to how Aly was asked to go inside the theatre and announce six names initially. So this time, it looks like Kavita, as the new captain of the house, will do the honours to put the six contestants into the cage.

In the promo, Pavitra can be seen nominating Jasmin for elimination and vice versa while Rahul nominates Eijaz and the latter nominates Abhinav in the task.

It will be interesting to see the changing dynamics in the house!

A Suitable Boy Netflix Review

On Sunday Afternoon, netizens urged fellow citizen to #BoycottNetflix over a kissing scene in the Netflix series ‘A Suitable Boy’, directed by Mira Nair. A section of the internet has expressed its displeasure over the content shown in ‘A Suitable Boy’, starring Tabu, Ishaan Khatter, and Tanya Maniktala.

The outrage is over Tanya Maniktala’s character Lata kissing Danesh Razvi’s character Kabir Durrani in the series in a sequence shot in a temple. Lata hailed from a Hindu family and Kabir was a Muslim.

Madhya Pradesh Home Minister Narottam Mishra, who had recently announced that the state government will bring a Bill against ‘love jihad’ in the next Assembly session, has now directed the authorities to ‘examine the objectionable scenes’ in filmmaker Meera Nair’s web series ‘A Suitable Boy’.

Narottam Mishra tweeted, “A film titled ‘A Suitable Boy’ has been released on an OTT platform. It depicts extremely objectionable scenes that hurt the feelings of a particular religion. I have directed police officials to look into it.”

Youth BJP leader Gaurav Tiwari submitted a written complaint against the makers and demanded the registration of an FIR. He also urged netizens to boycott Netflix and slammed the makers.

“In ‘A Suitable Boy’ show, @NetflixIndia filmed kissing scenes in the temple courtyard thrice in a single episode. According to the script, a Hindu woman is in love with a Muslim young man, but why were all the kissing scenes shot in the temple courtyard? I have lodged an FIR in Rewa on this matter,” he tweeted.

Actor-TV personality Rahul Mahajan was among the others who expressed his displeasure over the scene. He wrote, “A Muslim man kissing a Hindu woman during the Ram Aarti was ‘creative freedom’. But when a Hindu man and Muslim women would kiss in a mosque during Azaan, this creative freedom would go missing.’

Here are the reactions of Netizens:
