Malvika-Raaj

Actress Malvika Raaj, who played the young Poo in “Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham”, is all set to make her Bollywood debut with the action film “Squad”. As shoots remain stalled owing to lockdown, she is utilising the time to hone her dancing skills.

“Dancing has made me happy ever since I was a kid. It’s been a long lockdown in different parts. I switch on YouTube and take to any of the dance sessions there. It’s a goldmine of content there. Dance helps build rhythm and synchronises our body other than being a great form of working out as well,” Malvika said.

She added: “I think it’s a great time to experiment with a dance routine and everyone should give it a try. The pandemic is not over yet. We should try and stay within the guidelines. Get vaccinated whenever the opportunity arises.”

Malvika’s upcoming debut film “Squad” marks the debut of veteran actor Danny Denzongpa’s son Rinzing. Seventy per cent of the film has been shot in Belarus.

The action film boasts of stunt co-ordinator Keir Beck of “Mad Max: Fury Road” fame. Beck is working on the film’s action sequences along with stunt crew from six countries and with 400 stuntmen.

Tahir-Raj-Bhasin

Bollywood actor Tahir Raj Bhasin is finally back in the city after three months and has resumed work. He has started dubbing for his forthcoming release “Looop Lapeta”. The actor says it is disorienting to see a bustling city as Mumbai shut down, and the film industry paralysed, as it happened during the Pandemic.

“It really feels great to be back in Mumbai and start working after the country was engulfed in the deadly second wave. Mumbai has a very different energy and I have loved every bit of my time here. It is a city that has given me wind beneath my wings to aspire and soar creatively,” says Tahir.

He adds: “I have started dubbing for ‘Looop Lapeta’. As soon as I finish this, I will be starting work on a new project that I’m supremely excited about. I have been finishing my brand commitments before I dive into my film commitments.”

The actor says he left Mumbai to shoot in different parts of the country as cases spiked in the city. “So, it’s great to see Mumbai coming back to normalcy, and for the industry to restart.”

Tahir says he felt disoriented when shooting was paused in Mumbai. “This is a city of dreams and it’s always on, every second of the day. That’s the charm of Mumbai. So, it’s disorienting to see it shut, for the film industry to be paralysed and for people to not have work,” he said.

In “Looop Lapeta”, Tahir is paired with Taapsee Pannu. He also has “Bulbul Tarang” coming up opposite Sonakshi Sinha and “Yeh Kaali Kaali Ankhein”with Shweta Tripathi.

Tahir also has “83” lined up for release. Directed by Kabir Khan, the film is about India’s first World Cup win in 1983, and stars Ranveer Singh as the team captain Kapil Dev. Tahir play legendary opening batsman Sunil Gavaskar.

Ayesha-Sultana

Lakshadweep film personality Ayesha Sultana, on Saturday, left for the island, to appear before the Kavaratti Police which had served her a notice to appear before them on Sunday evening.

The complaint was registered by Lakshadweep BJP’s unit president Abdul Khader following the TV channel debate on June 7, where she had alleged that the ‘Centre used biological weapons for the spread of Covid in Lakshadweep’, which according to the complainant is anti-national.

At the Kochi airport, Sultana said she has done no wrong while she appeared on a Malayalam TV channel and spoke about the spread of Covid in the island.

“I have done no wrong and I will appear before the police tomorrow as asked by them,” said Sultana, who is accompanied by her counsel too.

Incidentally, she had filed a petition before the Kerala high court seeking anticipatory bail as she feared her arrest.

The court however asked her to appear before the police and in case the police find the need to arrest her, she should be given bail.

The notice that has been served on Sultana by Sub Inspector Ameer Bin Mohammed contains charges under 124 A and 153 B of the CrPC, both of which are non-bailable offences.

Incidentally, following the move by Khader, several BJP leaders and workers in the island have resigned from the party.

Sultana hails from Chelath Island in Lakshadweep, and is based here. Besides being a model, she has worked in numerous films in Malayalam.
