Actor Shreyas Talpade
Actor Shreyas Talpade, who is gearing up for the release of his next film titled ‘Setters’, has said that there are no similarities between his film and Emraan Hashmi starrer ‘Why Cheat India’.
Shreyas Talpade, accompanied by his co-actors Aftab Shivdasani, Ishita Dutta, Sonnalli Seygall, director Ashwini Chaudhary and producers Vikash Mani and Narendra Hirawat, was interacting with the media at the trailer launch of his upcoming film in Mumbai on Thursday.
‘Setters’ sheds light on the mafia and corrupt practices prevailing in the Indian education system. Notably, Emraan Hashmi’s recent release ‘Why Cheat India’ also highlighted corruption in the education system.
When asked about the similarities between the two films, Shreyas said, “I haven’t watched ‘Why Cheat India’ yet. People may try to find similarity between the two films but I feel both films are really different.”
“The modus operandi of the people that we have shown in our film is very fascinating. When I heard story of this film, I felt that their way of operating is bit filmy but later, I realised that such incidents still take place in our country,” Shreyas added.
Shreyas said he learned Banarasi language to play the film’s character.
“I have learnt Banarasi language to play my character in the film. I have also worked on how these people operate, how they carry themselves in public and how they behave with each other,” he said.
Shreyas said that he feels fortunate to be a part of the film, “I feel fortunate that Ashwini (Choudhary) ji thought of me to play this particular character as I have played comic characters in my career in most films. I feel really happy to be part of this film because as an actor, you always try to play various kinds of characters. So, once I got the opportunity I put in complete effort to play this character.’
Set in Banaras, Jaipur, Mumbai and Delhi, ‘Setters’ is scheduled for release on May 3, 2019.
Allahabad High Court denies anticipatory bail to Amazon Prime India head
The Allahabad High Court has refused to grant anticipatory bail to Aparna Purohit, the head of India Originals at Amazon Sellers Service Pvt Ltd, which is showing ‘Tandav’ web series online.
A single-judge bench of Justice Siddharth passed this order on Thursday while hearing an anticipatory bail application.
The anticipatory bail application had been filed by Aparna Purohit in the case under Sections- 153(A)(1)(b), 295-A, 505(1)(b) 505(2) IPC, Section 66 and 67 of the Information Technology Act and Section 3(1)(r) of SC/ST Act.
The allegation in the FIR lodged against the applicant and six other co-accused persons is that a web series is being shown on Amazon Prime Video, which is an online movie OTT platform, has objectionable content.
The web series is being shown through Amazon Prime Video through Head of India Originals, as paid movie.
The movie has been directed by co-accused, Ali Abbas Zafar.
The content of this movie is affecting the image of the Uttar Pradesh police adversely. In a Dial 100 police vehicle, two actors are shown travelling with open doors in a police uniform, consuming liquor and hurling abuses.
It is also seen that Hindu gods and goddesses have been depicted in a bad light with the intention of inciting communal sentiments.
The post of Prime Minister has been depicted in a manner which will adversely affect the democratic system of the country. Caste and community related utterances have been made deliberately so that it may affect the public peace.
Similarly, utterances have been made against the state police, public administration and the constitutional posts so that the element of hate is developed between the communities and there are scenes which show disrespect for the scheduled castes.
All this has been deliberately done to make the web series controversial and gain publicity for the purpose of commercial gain.
The FIR has been lodged against the producer/director and actors/actresses of the movie series.
Aparna Purohit’s counsel submitted that the web series in dispute is a work of fiction and all the places, events, characters and incidents are imagination of the author.
A disclaimer is included in the movie in this regard. The cast and crew of the web series Tandav has already issued an unconditional apology and have removed the offensive scenes.
The applicant along with other co-accused persons filed a petition under Article 32 of the Constitution of India before the apex court praying for quashing of number of FIRs and complaint cases lodged against the applicant and other co-accused persons on January 27, 2021.
Notices have been issued to the opposite parties, leaving it open for the accused persons to approach the High Court of the state for grant of bail/anticipatory bail. Hence, the applicant sought bail from Allahabad high court.
The state government, meanwhile, vehemently opposed the application. He has submitted that total 10 FIRs and 4 criminal complaints have been filed relating to the disputed web series in the country.
