Mumbai, March 16: Actor Shahid Kapoor backed by his wife Mira Rajput’s view on motherhood and feminism, and says she only spoke her mind when she said her child isn’t a “puppy” to be left at home.

Shahid defended his wife by saying that she had no intention to hurt anyone.

Mira had said at an event for International Women’s Day earlier this month that, “I love being at home, I love being a mother to my child. I wouldn’t want to spend one hour a day with my child and rush off to work, why did I have her? She is not a puppy; I want to be there for her as a mother.”

This comment soon sparked controversy on social media as the working mothers were not satisfied with her comments.

Defending Mira, Shahid said at the Nykaa Femina Beauty Awards on Wednesday night: “She clearly said ‘I think we are in a time where everybody is getting hurt about everything’, so I honestly don’t feel there is any sense in trying to keep everyone happy. I think Mira started the conversation by saying that these are my personal comments.”

He said his wife didn’t even make a direct comment on anybody or any category of women.

Besides, Shahid says it’s their personal choice as a couple that while one of them is working, the other is taking care of their child.

“What Mira is doing for Misha is far more important, far more relevant. I really wish I could, but between the two of us, one has to go to work and I happen to be that person. So, I think she was speaking from a very positive space,” he said.

Shahid’s next project is Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s “Padmavati”. On Tuesday night, a set of the film in Kolhapur was vandalised and set on fire.

Talking about it, Shahid said it is unfortunate.

“I am not aware of the fact that who has done it and the reason behind it,” he added.

“Padmavati” also stars Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh. The film is scheduled to release on November 17.

Big B not in favour of museum dedicated to him




Mumbai, March 23: Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan says he will not approve any proposal for building a “museum” dedicated to his life and work.

On Friday, when a Twitter user directed the 75-year-old to a news report about Andheri MLA Ameet Satam proposing a museum dedicated to Big B, the actor wrote: “Not approved at all… It shall not be done!”

According to the report, Satam proposed the idea of having the museum built in Juhu, which is also where Amitabh stays.

Satam reportedly made the proposal in the state assembly, where he also said that Juhu was Mumbai’s equivalent of Hollywood’s Beverly Hills given that a number of high profile film stars live in the locality.

Amitabh has had a long career of over four decades in the Hindi film industry. Age notwithstanding, the actor continues to regale his fans with movies, and currently has movies like “102 Not Out”, “Thugs of Hindostan”, “Bhramastra” and “Jhund” in his kitty.

We were ready for criticism: Ahmed Khan on ‘Ek Do Teen’



ek do teen-Ahmed Khan

Mumbai, March 23: “Baaghi 2” director Ahmed Khan says the team was ready for criticism from the word go when they decided to recreate the chartbuster “Ek do teen” for their film.

The original song was picturised on Madhuri Dixit and the new version features Jacqueline Fernandez. The reworked version has been a topic of much discussion on social media.

Given that Ahmed is a choreographer himself, asked if he is creatively satisfied with the video, he told IANS: “Firstly, I did not choreograph the song. It has been done by the great dancer-choreographer Ganesh Acharya. I did not interfere with his work.

“Having said that, from the moment we zeroed down on the song ‘Ek Do Teen’, we were ready for the criticism.

“I did not attend any rehearsal of the song, I did not show my power of being the director when the song was choreographed. I know you would be thinking that as a director I green-lit the final take. But we must not forget that it is an experiment… All feedback of such work cannot be positive. We are here to take the praise and bashing.”

“Ek do teen” became a rage when it first featured in the 1988 film “Teezab”, directed by N Chandra. The song was then choreographed by Saroj Khan.

Emphasising the reason behind recreating the song, Ahmed said: “The intention behind recreating any song is to revisit the memory of some of the cult classics like this, and keeping the new generation connect with it.

“Our youngsters have a strong connection with the lead pair of the film, Tiger Shroff and Disha Patani. When they watch the song in this film, they get to know about an old song that our generation grew up watching.”

Citing an example from his real life, Ahmed said: “My son is 11 years old and when he got to know that we are doing this song in our film, one of his friends asked him who Madhuri Dixit is. And one of his other friends replied, ‘That dancer, yesteryear heroine who teaches dance on YouTube called ‘Dance With Madhuri”.

“It clearly shows the reference point of the future generation. So, any recreated version of these kind of songs serves two purposes — revisiting the memory of the old song and connecting to the young generation with an upgraded version of the song.”

Madhuri is yet to give a feedback on the song.

Asked if he has spoken to Madhuri, Ahmed said: “Giving a feedback is her choice. I have nothing to say on that. We have done the song, bought the rights and in a legal way.

“I think we should be encouraged to attempt to recreate a song like ‘Ek Do Teen’ that was released 30 years ago.”

The film “Baaghi 2” is slated to release on March 30.
