‘Pathaan’ on OTT: Delhi HC directs YRF to make movie accessible for persons with disabilities

Published

on

 For making it accessible for hearing and visually impaired audience, the Delhi High Court on Monday directed Yash Raj Films to develop subtitles, close captioning and audio description in Hindi for ‘Pathaan’ movie’s OTT release and submit the same to the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) for a decision on re-certification by February 20.

The High Court directed that a decision on recertification of the film be taken by March 10.

A single-bench judge Justice Pratibha M. Singh was dealing with a petition filed by people with disabilities including a law student, lawyers and a disability rights activist seeking a direction to YRF, OTT paltforms and the government to make arrangements as per the Rights of Persons with Disabilities Act, 2016.

Justice Singh observed that the petition raises very important concern about entertainment accessebility for the visually and hearing impaired people and the authorities should make sure that the content is available for them in accessible formats.

The court also noted that special measure will have to be taken to make sure that the persons with disabilities are not denied theatre experience.

The court listed the matter for next hearing on April 6.

Justice Singh also impleaded the Indian Broadcasting and Digital Foundation, Film Producers Association and Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology as respondents in the matter.

The movie is set to release on Amazon Prime Video on April 25.

Beyonce announces ‘Renaissance’ stadium tour dates

Published

Singer Beyonce has announced a 2023 world tour on Instagram, supporting her multiple-Grammy-nominated 2022 album, ‘Renaissance’.

She also released the dates and cities on her official website, reports ‘Variety’.

The timing of the announcement, which comes just days before the Grammy Awards on Sunday, sparks speculation that the singer may perform or at least appear on the show. Beyonce is the most nominated artist for the awards with nine, all related to ‘Renaissance’.

Sources tell Variety that her husband Jay-Z will perform with DJ Khaled on the show, most likely their nominated song “God Did.”

Beyonce performed her first full concert in four years on January 21 at the new Atlantis the Royal Resort in Dubai.

It was an elaborate and highly theatrical performance — for which sources say she was paid some $24 million — with an all-female orchestra, a battery of dancers, a small lake, fireworks, a 50-foot hydraulic platform, three costume changes for the singer and a guest appearance from her and Jay’s daughter Blue Ivy, but no songs at all from ‘Renaissance’ — a tease that could mean she’ll premiere one or two on the Grammys, or even save them for the tour.

Beyonce has said that ‘Renaissance’ is a three-part project, so it’s possible that the next parts could be another album, a long-form video project or even the tour itself.

Beyonce’s last full tour was the nearly six-month, 49-date ‘Formation’ tour in 2016, which unusually featured no guest appearances until the final show, at New Jersey’s MetLife Stadium, where she brought out Kendrick Lamar and Jay-Z.

She did, however, stage an epochal ‘Homecoming’ headlining performance at the 2018 Coachella festival — which was postponed from 2017 due to the birth of her and Jay’s twins — for which she was accompanied by a full marching band in a nod to historically Black colleges and universities.

That blockbuster performance was later released as the ‘Homecoming’ album and — via a three-project deal with Netflix that sources tell Variety is worth $60 million — a feature-length documentary. It seems possible that a future ‘Renaissance’ video project could be part of that deal as well.

Priyanka and Nick welcomed Malti via surrogacy in January 2022 and since her arrival, the actor had posted several photos of her but without revealing her face.

Priyanka and Nick tied the knot in a Christian and a Hindu ceremony in Jodhpur’s Umaid Bhawan Palace on December 1 and 2 in 2018. Later, the couple also hosted two receptions in Delhi and Mumbai.

When Priyanka opened up on Malti’s birth

A few days ago, PeeCee finally broke her silence on her daughter’s birth and revealed why the couple opted for surrogacy. She had mentioned that she had certain medical complications and hence, they decided to go for surrogacy. She also slammed people accusing her of “outsourcing” her pregnancy and stated that her daughter won’t be a part of any gossip.

“I was in the operation room when she came out. She was so small, smaller than my hand. We spent every single day with her on my chest, on my husband’s chest,” PeeCee recalled.

She had also made it clear that people can comment on her as per their whims and fancies, but she will not let her daughter be “gossip”.
