Veteran actor Rishi Kapoor has called British Airways “racist” after an Indian passenger and his family were allegedly asked to de-board a flight in the UK.

He said his own experience with the airline once was not pleasant.

“Racist. Don’t fly British Airways. We cannot be kicked around. Sad to hear about the Berlin child incident. I stopped flying British Airways after the cabin crew were rude and had attitude not once but twice even after being a first class passenger. Fly Jet Airways or Emirates. There is dignity,” Rishi tweeted on Thursday.

The incident took place on July 23, when the family was travelling from London to Berlin on a British Airways flight.

Civil Aviation Minister Suresh Prabhu has directed the aviation regulator to obtain a detailed report from British Airways over the incident.

The development comes after the passenger, identified as A.P. Pathak a Joint Secretary level officer in the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways, complained that he and his family were discriminated against on racial lines.

Actor Saqib Saleem: OTT has given space to mid-sized films, series, documentaries

Actor-Saqib-Saleem

Saqib Saleem has worked in films as well as the OTT space. The actor feels that both platforms can co-exist, and adds that OTT has created space for mid-sized films, series and documentaries.

Talking about if the digital boom can take over the cinema-going experience, Saqib disagrees. “I think both can coexist very happily. What OTT has done is it has given a lot of space for those mid-sized films, series and documentaries. But watching a film with 200 people on a screen and laughing together or feeling an emotion together — I think that is irreplaceable,” he told IANS.

He strongly believes that there will be a lot of work coming on the OTT space but there will be big ticket films coming as well.

“So, yes, there will be a lot of OTT work in the coming years but the cinema-loving audience will always be there. There will always be films like ‘Sooryavanshi’, ‘83′, ‘Bahubali’ — the big ticket films you really want to go to the theatres for,” he said.

Saqib believes that the digital space will evolve filmmakers and that the content will become better too.

“What it will do is push all of us — whether it is somebody making something for OTT platforms or for the cinemas — to make something better. The quality of content will get better. I think it will be a healthy competition in the future,” he said.

Saqib’s latest release is the digitally released film “Comedy Couple”, co-starring Shweta Basu Prasad.

Kriti-Sanon

Actress Kriti Sanon shared some fresh poetry she has composed, on her Instagram account on Thursday. In the poem, Kriti questions how much we know ourselves or whether we know ourselves at all.

The poem reads: “Do you know her for REAL?

Or just the bits She wants you to see

And the ones You want her to be?”

Sharing the poem on Instagram, the actress further wrote: “Sometimes I wonder.. Do we know anyone truly? Like for REAL? Not sure if we know ourselves fully too.. we know just parts of who we ‘think’ we are and who we wanna be. #PoetryWithKriti.”

Commenting on her Instagram post, producer Ekta Kapoor wrote: “Answer is NO”.

To this Kriti replied: “Ha ha ha… only you and I understood your reply.”

Kriti often posts poetry that she has written for fans on social media. Earlier this month, she wrote a poem that defines a resilient streak about her.

“Every time she’s fallen down, she’s gotten up stronger! That’s me. If you resonate with this too, swipe left,” Kriti had written on Instagram, with a monochrome mid-shot. She tagged the post with #BeMyPoetry and #JustScribbling.
