Nana Patekar

Mumbai, Oct 10 : Taking a firm stand against cases of alleged sexual harassment in the film industry, the Federation of Western India Cine Employees (FWICE) has sent notices to Nana Patekar, Vikas Bahl and Alok Nath, who have been accused of indulging in such acts.

Going a step further, the Federation also announced to stop working with these people if they fail to respond to the notices.

Speaking to the press on Wednesday evening, Chief Advisor of FWICE Ashok Pandit said: “We have sent notices to Nana Patekar, Vikas Bahl and Alok Nath. They have to respond within a week. If they don’t respond on time, the five lakh members of our federation in different bodies will stop working with them. In a way, they will be banned by the entertainment industry.”

When asked about the content of notice, Pandit said it calls accused’s version with regard to the charges slapped against them. “The idea is to hear both sides of the story and then take a legal recourse.”

Some other members of the committee, including Ashok Dubey, B.N. Tiwari and Gangeshwar Shrivastav, were also present at the press conference.

While Nana Patekar is accused of sexually harassing actress Tanushree Dutta in 2008 on the sets of “Horn Ok Pleasss”, actor Alok Nath allegedly made a sexual assault on writer-producer Vinta Nanda 19 years ago and director Vikas Bahl is alleged to have sexually harassed one of his female colleagues in 2015.

Taking a vow to support the #MeToo movement, Pandit said: “Our legal team is there to guide and support all the victims of such harassments and we urge them to file the complaint whenever they face such a situation. We want to create a fear among such sick-minded people so that they refrain from even thinking about conducting themselves in this manner with any other members of the fraternity.

“We will support the victim in their legal fight. We will take such case to the court to seek justice for every victim of the industry.”

The Bigg Boss 12 contestants are now turning into enemies and showing the real nature while performing the Fire Station Task that promises the ‘Ticket To Finale’.Deepak the manipulator, the worst irritating person wants to eliminate Sreesanth, Surbhi,Romil and Deepika and for that he is teaming up with Somi Khan and Karanvir.

Celebrities like Deepika, Sreesanth and KV have worked hard to get a celebrity tag and commoners misunderstand them as getting preference but they don’t  know how much hardships they have faced to get that position.

Surbhi has changed  and is now moving as a stronger contestant.

Deepak Thakur, from the starting, remained the main cunning fellow and the viewers are able to analyse that not the celebrities at Bigg Boss 12 house but the commoner contestants are cunning and are not liked by the audience as they constantly teased each other for fighting unnecessarily to gain footage. Rather celebrities are displaying their real nature and follow rules for every task.
Deepak ,Romil and other men were always seen occupying the front door of every task so that girls cannot come in the front .
Deepak , who perceives Karanvir Bohra as weak contestant is now making him believe that he is a true friend of him, but actually Deepak wants to eliminate Sreesanth, Surbhi,Romil and deepika and for that he is teaming up with Somi Khan and Karanvir.

Deepak, the commoner is the worst contestant with no principles and he has been seen picking up unnecessary fights with everyone and backbiting. He first praises and then discards after getting benefit.

Somi Khan is a confused one, first she used both Romil and Deepak to remain in the house for 12 weeks and npow pretends to be strong and intervenes in every fight to gain footage.

Only Deepak and Romil has made her seen in the Biggg Boss 12 house.
Deepika is a nice and dignified person, who prepares food and does task but she is not willing to follow a wrong path , which shows the good character of hers.

Bigg boss 12 contestant Karanvir Bohra’s wife Teejay Sidhu who earlier wrote an open letter has again slammed the makers for being biased towards KV but she must understand tha he is being used by Deepak and Romil.

The race to the finale will make things extremely difficult for those who have pinned hopes on their fellow contestants.

Karanvir, Somi, Deepak and Romil had decided that they wouldn’t make anyone else the firefighter. They were exchanging the role among themselves to ensure the ticket to finale remains within their team. But there comes a time when their plan doesn’t get executed as per their wish. One of them is on the line of fire for disqualification from the task.

 

Romil, Somi and KV keep strategizing and planning about the task.

In the washroom area, KV thanks Deepak for saving him and tells him Romil’s plan. Romil tries to tell Somi that she should go in the van after 2 turns, Somi doesn’t agree and says that she wants to go in the next round else she won’t go. She says that she won’t play as per Romil’s plan.

Sara disappointed as ‘Kedarnath’ didn’t release in Uttarakhand

sara-ali-khan

Mumbai, Dec 18: Sara Ali Khan says she was disappointed that she couldn’t share her labour of love, her debut film “Kedarnath”, with the people of Uttarakhand — the state where she started her journey as an actress.

During an interaction with the media here, Sara was asked how she reacted when the film failed to get a release in Uttarakhand due to objections from some sections over the alleged promotion of ‘love jihad’ in the film.

Sara said: “Yes, I am disappointed. It is a weird kind of disappointment which hasn’t come from anything else other than the fact that the place Uttarakhand has given me a lot. Those 45 days (of shooting the film) in Kedarnath has given me a lot. The least I could have done for the people over there, giving them back ‘Kedarnath’, the film. But now, what to do.”

Set in the hill station of Uttarakhand, the story of the film revolves around a Hindu girl falling in love with a Muslim boy and the societal opposition due to their different religions. It is set against the backdrop of a natural calamity.

The film got into controversy for allegedly hurting Hindu sentiments and promoting ‘love-jihad’ from the beginning of its shooting.

Before the release of the film on December 7, the Uttarakhand government wrote to all district magistrates about the film and the controversies surrounding it.

The decision followed a meeting chaired by Chief Minister Trivendra Singh Rawat that reviewed a report submitted by a committee headed by Tourism Minister Satpal Maharaj.

The government asked the district administration to take a call on their own and left it to their discretion whether or not the film should be released in their respective jurisdictions. So, the film did not release in the state.

Directed by Abhishek Kapoor, the film also features Sushant Singh Rajput.

Kedarnath

Sara’s maiden performance won her a lot of praise from critics, the audience and her parents — actors Amrita Singh and Saif Ali Khan — as well as the Hindi film fraternity at large.

Sharing her mother’s reaction to the film, Sara said: “My mother cried at the end of the film. But I would say parents and family will love and support me by default.”
