Ranbir-Alia’s fake wedding card goes viral on social media

Fake wedding

Mumbai: A fake wedding card of B-Town lovebirds Alia Bhatt and Ranbir Kapoor has started circulating on social media, unleashing fan frenzy over a possible power wedding in Bollywood. Look closely at the card, however, and you realise it was probably created by a fan. It is full of typos and incorrect information.

This is exactly what the card reads: “Mrs Neetu and Mr Rishi Kapoor cordially invite you for the Sagan ceremony of their son Ranbir with Aliya (D/0 Mrs Soni and Mr Mukesh Bhatt) on Wednesday, 22th January 2020, 5.00 pm onwards. Venue: Umaid Bhawan Palace, Jodhpur”.

Firstly, Alia Bhatt’s name is spelt incorrectly in the card. It reads ‘Aliya’ instead of ‘Alia’. Secondly, Mukesh Bhatt is Alia’s uncle. She is the daughter of Mahesh Bhatt. Also, the card has typos like 22th as the wedding date, instead of 22nd.

Twitterati started making fun of the card no sooner that it was uploaded.

A user wrote: “This wedding card circulating online is *FAKE* @aliaa08’s name is not spelt as ‘Aliya’ n neither is her father’s name Mukesh Bhatt, that’s her uncle. She is @MaheshNBhatt’s daughter. Pls don’t believe in this n stop circulating this picture.”

Another user commented: “It sucks when you’re about to have a multi million dollar wedding but can’t fix the typos in your wedding card. It’s the 22nd not 22th.”

Meanwhile, Alia Bhatt has denied rumours that she is tying the knot on January 22. Quizzed by the paparazzi at Mumbai airport, she stopped and smiled, and added: “What do I say?!” After a pause, she said: “No”.

On the work front, Ranbir and Alia will be seen together in Ayan Mukerji’s “Brahmastra”, which is expected to release next year. The film also stars Amitabh Bachchan.

‘Majoritarianism global threat to democracy, secularism’

Panaji, Nov 22 : Majoritarianism is strongly controlling systems all over the world, along with a global threat to the very perception of democracy and secularism, according to India’s ace political film director Prakash Jha.

The director, however, also told IANS on Friday that there were no restrictions on making films in India and insisted that there had been no change in the country’s political climate since 2014, as far as film making is concerned.

“These are the changes which are happening. Like how in the entire world, there is a threat to perception of democracy and secularism. All over the world, majoritarianism is strongly controlling the system. It is not just one place, it is a global change. So these are changes which are constantly happening in our society because of various economic, ideological, political ’emergences’,” Jha said during an interactive session in Panaji.

Jha’s film, ‘Pareeksha’, slated for release next year, is being screened at the ongoing 50th edition of the International Film Festival of India (IFFI), which got underway earlier this week.

Starring Adil Hussain, ‘Pareeksha’ deals with the challenges of a rickshaw driver, who wants his child admitted to an English medium school and the trials he has to face, subsequently.

When asked if the regime change at the Centre in 2014, had changed the political climate in India vis a vis making films dealing with political subjects, Jha said: “Nothing has changed. It is the same. We are still able to make the films that we want to and I don’t think there is any change that has happened. None.”

Jha also said, that the lack of education in humanities in Indian educational institutions and colleges, which were more geared towards churning out engineers and managers, had resulted in a generation which was devoid of humanities.

“When a society or a country requires just engineers and managers, then obviously the whole education system will bring or churn out engineers and managers. When the study in humanities becomes immaterial, you have a generation who are devoid of humanities. Nobody studies history geography literature mathematics, pure sciences. Nobody is studying those things today,” Jha said.

“And when you do not have humanities in your basic education in society, the society will change. You will have a generation which thinks differently, which acts differently. Which has different values and system. For me it is important to study the changes, try and understand why something is happening the way it is happening,” the filmmaker said.

Jha, whose 2011 film ‘Arakshan’ also dealt with students and politics, said that the wave of popular obsession with engineering and management-oriented education had peaked and that humanities is making a comeback into Indian’s educational canvas.

“The engineering colleges, the management colleges, institutes all over the country are now going empty. That whole peak has changed. There is already a very slow, but soft interest back into studies of humanities,” Jha said.

Sunny Leone Ragini MMS 2

Mumbai, Nov 22 : Actress Sunny Leone has added oomph to the second season of the erotic-horror web series “Ragini MMS Returns” with a special dance number.

Titled “Hello ji”, the peppy song has been composed by music director duo Meet Bros and sung by Kanika Kapoor. The new song has brought back the “Baby doll” team together.

“Having worked with Ekta (Kapoor) before and having an absolute blast, the two of us knew that we’d definitely be working again. That’s the beauty of the industry. You work with someone, there’s a gap in between and then you collaborate with them again. The two of us get along so well and this time we want to hit it out of the park,” Sunny quipped.

“The song is extremely catchy. The visuals are very hip and cool. Everything about the song makes me elated to be a part of it. I’ve worked with Vishnu (Deva) before on countless songs. We know exactly what to do and how to make it different. Even the set on which the song is shot gives me good memories. It reminds me of all the great things we did here,” she added.

ALTBalaji and ZEE5’s “Ragini MMS Returns Season 2” is a story of a 20-year-old Ragini Shroff who along with her gang of girls goes on a planned trip. What follows is a series of incidents which topple their world upside down.

U2, Rahman team up for ‘Ahimsa’ song

A.R. Rahman

Mumbai: Irish rock band U2 has unveiled a new song titled “Ahimsa”, in collaboration with composer A.R. Rahman, ahead of the group’s first ever visit to India.

U2’s lead vocalist Bono said: “The fight against injustice has always been so important to us. We were somewhat shaped and formed by Martin Luther King who was a student of Mahatma Gandhi. Martin Luther King said ‘The moral arc of the universe is long but it bends towards justice…’. I don’t believe that any more.

“It doesn’t bend towards justice, it has to be bent towards justice. We have to be actively involved in our democracy to preserve it and show people how we feel and what we care about. We come as students to the source of inspiration. That is ahimsa.. non-violence… India gave this to us.. the greatest gift to the world.. It is more powerful than nuclear energy, the armies, the navies, the British Empire. It is power itself. And it’s never been more important,” he added.

The collaboration comes less than one month ahead of U2’s first ever show in India with the arrival of ‘The Joshua Tree Tour’ in Mumbai on December 15. The band is popular for hits like “With or without you”, “I still haven’t found what I’m looking for” and “Beautiful day”

“‘Ahimsa’ requires courage and strength. A quality that is impervious to weapons or power. It’s a mission which is most needed to heal the modern world and it is incredible timing to collaborate with U2, with their amazing legacy, to revive this movement,” Rahman said.

U2 guitarist The Edge added: “It has been an absolute joy to work with A.R. on this track. A superstar and a talent both towering and generous, we are especially excited to visit his homeland in just a few weeks. India has been on our bucket list for a very long time, the principles of ahimsa or non-violence have served as an important pillar of what our band stands for since we first came together to play music.

“We can’t wait to experience the culture of India first hand, a place that brings together the modern and the ancient all at once.”

The year 2019 will also see the release of four highlights from U2’s catalogue of songs, remixed by local Indian artistes, coming soon on all streaming platforms.
