New Delhi, Feb 24: Shah Rukh Khan, who is touted as one of the biggest superstars of the Hindi film industry, says he is done with the tag and now wants to be a legend.

“I am 26 years old in the film industry which is half my lifetime really. From here on I am going to spend time in the world of cinema than the outside of it… I realised I should do away with the tag of being a superstar instead I should work towards tag of being a legend,” he said.

He added: “No megastar… as egoistic and self-centred like me will fade away into the past without trying to wedge his or her foot into the door to the future. So even I want to put myself into the future of cinema like I have been in the past 25 years.”

The actor, 52, who has been in the Hindi film industry for over two decades, stressed that he really wants to be a legend.

“I really want to be a legend.

“Unfortunately, there are no articles or books on how to be a legend. So, I rummage through my personal library… I found a book on the history of human kind called ‘Sapiens’ and going through the book I found that the only reason homo sapiens have dominated the rest of the species is because of one thing — because we gossip,” added the superstar.

The actor said that the spreading of ideas is a way of story telling.

“Genuinely, story-telling has anchored communication between human beings. Even entertainment is actually a derivative of story-telling. Whether you music, art or poetry all of these things are a form of story-telling,” he added.

The modern art of story telling is of course filmmaking, he said.

“I think there has been radical change in cinema and content over the years. A change even in the way we consume films. But right now I think we are witnessing the greatest change. The greatest change of this century has been the evolutionary revolution that has taken over the human kind is the opening up communication, information on the digtised platform,” he added.

Shah Rukh says that the future of cinema will be changed through the advent of digitisation.

“There will be a lot of changes on how we consume cinema and watch it. But mainly the changes is going to be how we market cinema…

“The second change that there is going to happen is that there is going to be… there will be radical movement away from the content itself… Instead of waiting for loans there is going to be a lot more crowd funding,” he added.

Shah Rukh says there will be a big change between the viewer and how an individual watches the film.

He added: “Right now the movie that attract us, it’s a momentary catch of emotions or expression but soon movies will itself become an experience. They will be interactive.”

Artificial intelligence, virtual reality and visual effects all these are so important that roles of actors and stars will diminish, stressed the actor.

The access to cinema will be more easier.

“It is going to be on your mobile…there will be no more appointment cinema. Cinema will be at will — whenever and where ever you want to watch. I do not think cinema theatres will close down,” he said.

Los Angeles, Dec 15: Actor Stoney Westmoreland, a 48-year-old actor who plays the grandfather on Disney Channel sitcom “Andi Mack”, has been fired by the channel following his arrest for allegedly trying to arrange a sexual liaison with a 13-year-old he met online.

“Stoney Westmoreland, an actor working on the series ‘Andi Mack,’ was arrested in Salt Lake City today,” a representative for Disney Channel said in a statement Friday night, reports deadline.com.

“Given the nature of the charges and our responsibility for the welfare of employed minors, we have released him from his recurring role and he will not be returning to work on the series which wraps production on its third season next week,” the statement said.

The age of the alleged victim is the same as the central characters on “Andi Mack” and young actors who play them.

The comedy, created by Terri Minsky, follows 13-year-old Andi Mack and her best friends, Cyrus Goodman and Buffy Driscoll, as they attend middle school.

Westmoreland was arrested on Friday in Utah, where “Andi Mack” films.

According to TV station KSL, court documents state he was arrested for investigation of enticing a minor by Internet or text, a second-degree felony, and four counts of dealing in materials harmful to a minor, a third-degree felony.

An affidavit filed in 3rd District Court in Salt Lake City indicated Westmoreland began communicating online with a user he believed was underage “on an Internet app used for dating and meeting people for the purpose of engaging in sexual activity”.

Police allege Westmoreland asked that person to engage in acts with him and to send nude photographs. Westmoreland also sent pornographic photographs, according to the affidavit.

The Salt Lake City Police Department and FBI Child Exploitation Task Force arrested Westmoreland when he took a ride-sharing service to pick up the person he believed was a teen, the affidavit states.

Sona Mohapatra Kailash Kher

Mumbai, Dec 15: Singer Sona Mohapatra, who had accused Kailash Kher of inappropriate behaviour, has demanded the “Teri Deewani” singer’s withdrawal from Delhi governments Mayur Utsav.

Sona has started a change.org petition #WhyKailashKher, to garner support.

“I am shocked to learn that Kailash Kher has been asked to headline a performance at the Delhi Government’s Mayur Utsav that begins today,” she has penned in the petition.

Sona has urged Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal to cancel Kailash’s participation, thereby extending support to the #MeToo movement.

She tweeted: “Dear Delhi, Aam Aadmi Party and Arvind Kejriwal, multiple women including minors have come out in the public with their #MeToo stories against this predator Kailash Kher and you choose to rub this kind of insult to injury? Do you care so little for 50 per cent of your population?”

Kailash is looking forward to his performance on Sunday at the fest, organised by Sahitya Kala Parishad, the cultural wing of the Delhi government.

In an email interview to IANS, he has said it would be nostalgic and emotional for him to sing for his people on his “homeground” of Delhi’s Mayur Vihar, which he calls the land of his elders.
