Kangana-Ranaut

Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut has revealed that it was yoga that helped her sister Rangoli Chandel recover from the trauma after she suffered an acid attack by a roadside romeo.

“Rangoli has the most inspiring yoga story, a roadside romeo threw acid on Rangoli when she was hardly 21, with third degree burns, half of her face burnt, lost vision in one eye, one ear melted away and a breast severely damaged,” Kangana wrote alongside a string of pictures on Instagram late Sunday night, featuring Rangoli and her nephew.

Kangana revealed that Rangoli had to go through “53 surgeries in 2-3 years”.

“But that wasn’t all, my biggest concern was her mental health as she had stopped to speak, yes no matter what happened she would not say a word, just stare blankly at every thing, she was engaged to an Air Force officer and when he saw her face after the acid attack he left and never returned, even then she did not shed a tear neither she uttered a word, doctors told me she is in a state of shock,” she added.

“I did yoga with my teacher Surya Narayan and had no idea that it could help patients with burns and psychological traumas also with retina transplant recovery and lost vision. I desperately wanted her to talk to me, so I took her everywhere with me even to my yoga classes. She started practising yoga and I saw dramatic transformation in her,” said the actress.

“Not only she started to respond to her pain and my lame jokes but also regained her lost vision in one eye… Yoga is the answer to every question (misery) you will ever have, did you give it a chance yet?”

 The release date of Aamir Khan’s ‘Laal Singh Chaddha’ has been pushed back once again due to delays amid the Covid-19 pandemic.

The Aamir Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan-starrer, which was expected to release around Christmas this year, will now be releasing on Valentine’s Day next year.

Aamir Khan Productions made the announcement via an Instagram post on Sunday.

The post reads: “We welcome the decision of the administration to allow cinemas to re-open from 22nd Oct.”

“Due to the delays faced as a result of the pandemic, we will be unable to release our film, ‘Laal Singh Chaddha’, this Christmas.”

“We will now be releasing ‘Laal Singh Chaddha’ on Valentine’s Day 2022.”

The announcement comes just a day after Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray on Saturday announced that all cinema halls and drama theatres in the state will reopen from October 22.

‘Laal Singh Chaddha’ reunites Aamir Khan with his ‘3 Idiots’ co-stars Kareena Kapoor Khan and Mona Singh. The film also features Naga Chaitanya and Manav VJ in key roles.

Directed by Adavit Chandan, ‘Laal Singh Chaddha’ is an adaptation of the 1994 Hollywood film ‘Forrest Gump’ which was based on Winston Groom’s 1986 novel of the same name.

It is produced by Aamir Khan Productions, Viacom18 Studios and Paramount Pictures.

Sanjay Leela Bhansali on the inception of his debut web series ‘Heeramandi’

As Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s upcoming magnum opus ‘Heeramandi’, his first-ever web series, is soon to be released, the ace director shares his inspiration for making the show.

Talking about its inception, Sanjay said, “I remember when I was a four-year-old kid and my father had taken me to a shoot and he said you sit here and I’ll meet my friends and come. I was in the studio and it seemed the most comfortable to me. More than a school, a playground, a cousin’s house, or anywhere in the world, I thought it was the most beautiful place. When I look back at 25 years, I think it’s very precious to me because you have to be blessed to be able to get a chance to make a film and that’s why I cling on to the studio because the studio floor is the most magical, that’s my temple, that’s my everything.”

He further added, “‘Heeramandi’ was something that my friend Moin Baig got to me as a 14-page story, 14 years ago and then finally when we presented it to Netflix, they loved it and they thought it had great potential to make a mega-series. It is very ambitious, it’s very big and vast. It tells you the story of courtesans. They kept music, poetry and dance and the art of living. It shows the politics within the brothels and how to emerge as the winner. It is a difficult one but I hope we come across with flying colours this time.”

The series will explore stories of courtesans and the hidden cultural reality of ‘Heeramandi’, a dazzling district, during pre-independent India. It’s a series about love, betrayal, succession and politics in the ‘kothas’.
