Actress Hina Khan has had two Cannes Film Festival experiences so far. Her debut at the French Riviera in 2019 and her second outing there in 2022 has also been an experience that she will always remember.
Says Hina: “Representing India on the global platform is a huge deal. And I consider that a very high honour. And I am so glad that I gotta do it at both of my Cannes appearances. I sincerely hope that I continue to get this opportunity every time.”
Hina’s Indo-English film ‘Country of Blind’s posters, launched at the prestigious film festival.
Talking about it, Hina reveals: “I remember launching Lines’ poster and the praise that accompanied that was immense. And it only grew manifold when I launched ‘Country of Blind’ poster. Both the films have been very close to my heart for various reasons and both being at Cannes only made them even more special. I couldn’t have asked for anything more at that moment!”
Hina also went on to elaborate more on why her presence at Cannes matters a lot to her.
“Cannes is a platform where different film fraternities come together to celebrate cinema and represent their respective countries. I consider myself very fortunate to have been on that platform to represent my country. That’s what I want to do, represent India and make it shine on the world map,” Hina confesses.
The film festival was held online in 2020 and because of vaccinations, many attendees couldn’t make it to the event in 2021.
Talking about it, Hina adds: “The pandemic disrupted everything. But it was refreshing to go to Cannes after 2 years. What also came as a very pleasant surprise was to see how much Indian representation has increased in comparison to what we saw in 2019. It was lovely to see so many Indian actresses and talent walk the red carpet and represent India. In fact, the kind of content presented this time at Cannes was also very enjoyable. I am glad to see that Covid did not dampen anyone’s spirits.”
SRK’s Mumbai bungalow Mannat gets a diamond-studded nameplate
Superstar Shah Rukh Khan, who is known as the king of Bollywood, has added more jewels to his crown – quite literally. His bungalow, Mannat is one of the iconic places in Mumbai, and now he has cranked it up a notch by getting a diamond studded nameplate for his residence.
Several fan clubs of the ‘Chak De! India’ star recently shared the pictures of the nameplate on their social media as they swarmed to the King’s castle to take a glimpse of the shimmery nameplate, which surfaced roughly two months after the previous nameplate.
In the pictures, two diamond nameplates could be seen with Mannat written on the left side and Landsend written on the right. Previously, it was a blackboard with Mannat Landsend embossed on it.
Landsend because the sea-facing bungalow is situated in the land’s end part of Bandstand in Bandra.
SRK often greets his fans from his balcony as he did recently on his birthday on November 2. Fans now have all the more reason to put the camera shutter sound in action with the installation of the new nameplate.
On the work front, SRK has three big-ticket releases in the pipeline first of which is ‘Pathaan’ from the YRF spy universe. The film will mark SRK’s return to the silver screen after a hiatus of 4 years. Additionally, he also has Rajkumar Hirani’s ‘Dunki’ in which he will share the screen with Taapsee Pannu and south director Atlee’s ‘Jawan’.

Khan Squared: SRK to appear in Salman Khan’s ‘Tiger 3’ as Pathaan
The daredevilry of ‘Pathaan’ is going to spill into ‘Tiger 3’. That Salman Khan will appear in ‘Pathaan’ in his Tiger avatar had been confirmed some time back, but now comes the news that Shah Rukh Khan will show up in ‘Tiger 3’ to enact a thrilling sequence.
‘Pathaan’ as well as the ‘Tiger’ and ‘War’ franchises (‘War’ being the superhit film where Hrithik Roshan plays RAW agent Major Kabir Dhaliwal) are three important pieces of the spy universe unspooled by Yash Raj Films.
“Shah Rukh Khan will shoot for ‘Tiger 3’ immediately after the release of ‘Pathaan’, thus confirming his presence in the Tiger franchise. In Aditya Chopra’s spy universe, the paths of SRK, Salman and Hrithik will constantly cross to build up the grand finale of the spy universe,” a well-placed source reveals.
SRK’s shoot schedule for ‘Tiger 3’ is being planned immediately after January 25, 2023.
The source added: “This will be a massively mounted action sequence where Pathaan and Tiger come together for a very crucial scene. This will also be a huge cinematic moment for audiences to love.”
“The spy universe is turning out to be deliciously thrilling because it brings the biggest superstars together in a riveting, edge of the seat sequences that are important for the plot to move forward. Now, all eyes are on when Hrithik Roshan will enter the spy universe.”
