Karan-Kundrra

Actor Karan Kundrra says it is important to ensure entertainment reaches people at a time they are locked in due to the pandemic, which is why it is important to continue shooting amidst strict protocol.

“We all are striving to ensure that the show keeps on going and people who’re stuck at home during the pandemic have something to enjoy in their lives,” he said.

The actor is currently shooting for the show “Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai” amid strict hygiene protocols.

“The shoots are happening around the Gujarat border outside Silvassa for quite some time now. We all are staying in a bio-bubble and following Covid-19 protocols as per government directives. There are not many people outside. The cellphone networks are weak here and there are times when we are totally unable to contact anyone, even our parents,” Karan said.

The actor recently joined hands with Uday Foundation to help people during the pandemic. He helped people with wellness kits, oximeters, oxygen cylinders, and even medicines related to Covid-19.

 Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma has urged Bollywood actor Aamir Khan who expressed his willingness to visit the state on the eve of Independence Day to plan the trip after the conclusion of ‘Har Ghar Tiranga’ celebrations.

“Aamir Khan spoke to me and he intended to come to Assam during the Independence Day celebration. But it may shift focus from Azadi Ka Amrit Mohatsav… hence I told him to fix a date after August 15,” Sarma told the mediapersons here on Friday.

The Chief Minister, however, said that he has good terms with Khan and they often speak over the telephone.

Though the intent to visit Assam is unknown, sources said Khan wanted to promote his latest release ‘Laal Singh Chaddha’, which is a remake of the iconic film ‘Forrest Gump’.

It could not be known if the actor has agreed to come to Assam after Independence Day.

Khan’s latest film has been embroiled in controversy for the last few days. Some sections were calling for a boycott of the film claiming that the Aamir Khan-starrer was disrespectful towards the Indian Army.

Notably, Khan had earlier extended a helping hand to the flood-affected people of Assam by making a contribution of Rs 25 lakh towards the CM Relief Fund.

Sarma then took to Twitter to thank the Bollywood actor.

Actress Kangana Ranaut has targeted Bollywood superstar Aamir Khan, whom she tagged as a “mastermind” for skillfully creating negativity around his upcoming release ‘Laal Singh Chaddha’, and that he made “Hinduphobic” film ‘PK’.

Kangana took to her Instagram Story where she lashed out at Aamir and asked him to stop “making it about religion or ideology”.

She wrote: “I think all the negativity around upcoming release ‘Laal Singh Chadda’ is skill fully curated by mastermind Aamir Khan Ji himself.”

“I think all the negativity around upcoming release ‘Laal Singh Chadda’ is skillfully curated by mastermind Aamir Khan Ji himself, this year no Hindi films have worked (barring one exception of a comedy sequel).

“Only south films deeply rooted in Indian culture or with local flavour have worked, a Hollywood remake would have not worked anyway.”

She added: “But now they will call India intolerant, Hindi films need to understand the pulse of audiences it’s not about being a Hindu or Muslim.”

“Even after Aamir Khan ji made Hinduphobic ‘PK’ or called India intolerant he gave biggest hits of his life please stop making it about religion or ideology, it’s takes away from their bad acting and bad films.”

Directed by Advait Chandan, ‘Laal Singh Chaddha’ stars Kareena Kapoor Khan alongside Aamir Khan. The film is the official Hindi adaptation of Tom Hanks’ iconic movie ‘Forrest Gump’.

It is scheduled to hit the screens on August 11.
