Filmmaker Abhishek Kapoor, who had directed Sushant Singh Rajput in his debut film “Kai Po Che” (2013) and later “Kedarnath” (2018), shared in an Instagram post: “1yr today.. still numb #omnamahshivaya #sushantsinghrajput #superstar forever.”

Sushant’s “Sonchiriya” co-star Bhumi Pednekar wrote: “Miss you, your questions and everything we spoke about. From the stars to the things unknown, you showed me the world like I had never seen it before. I hope you’ve found your peace my curious sweet SSR…Om Shanti #Forever #Ssr #Peace #neutronstar.”

Another “Sonchiriya” actor Ranvir Shorey posted in Hindi: “Apna Karza toh utar gayo, humey yahin chhod gayo bihadan mein… #sonchiriya #sushantsinghrajput.”

Saswata Chatterjee, who was a co-actor in Sushant’s posthumously released film “Dil Bechara”, shared: “Remembering every single moment with you Sushant… Memories never fade.
#remembering #sushantsinghrajput.”

Casting director Mukesh Chhabra, who directed “Dil Bechara”, tweeted: “Nothing seems to be the same. The void you left behind still remains. Here’s hoping I’ll see you once again. Miss you Brother #stillnumb #sushantsinghrajput.”

Many other industry colleagues also remembered the actor.

Taking to Instagram, actor Pulkit Samrat wrote: “It has been a year since the world lost you, and my mind immediately goes back to the times when we crossed paths briefly, at an award function. We shook hands briefly and went our separate ways. Memories have a funny way of evoking emotions. I still remember when I heard the news that you were no more, it felt like a personal loss. And the memory of that brief interaction comes rushing back to me today, again.”

“The world lost you, but you still exist as an inspiration to those who dare to dream big. You exist in the hopes and aspirations of every small town guy who dreams of making it big some day. You exist for everyone who wants to believe that humans are capable of kindness. You exist for everyone who dares to dream. I never got to know you in this lifetime, but if we live more than once, I would want to be a part of the world again where you exist, a world that is much kinder than this one. Sushant Singh Rajput, you are missed,” Pulkit added.

Singer-actress Sophie Choudry tweeted: “1yr ago today everything changed. Whether u knew him or not you were deeply affected, hurt, angry, confused. You are missed Sushant, as an artist, as a human being, as a friend and by all those who loved you. Hope ur smiling amongst the stars you so loved #SushantSinghRajput.”

Actress-filmmaker Renuka Shahane posted: “Sushant Singh Rajput Still can’t believe you have gone. You haven’t. You live in our hearts.”

Television actress Devoleena Bhattacharjee shared: “You will always be remembered. Hope you are at peace. #SushantSinghRajput.”

Producer Ashoke Pandit tweeted: “Dear #SushantSinghRajput. I do not want to believe that you are no more. I do not want to believe that you were killed & hanged. I do not want to believe that your family is still suffering their biggest loss. Till your killers are hanged to death. #sushantjusticematters .”

Actor Shekhar Suman posted: “Ev single day since June 14th last year we have remembered you fondly. You have left behind a void that wd be so difficult to fill. may you eternally shine like the brightest star and stay in our 4ever! #SushantSinghRajput
#sushantjusticematters.”

 The release date of Aamir Khan’s ‘Laal Singh Chaddha’ has been pushed back once again due to delays amid the Covid-19 pandemic.

The Aamir Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan-starrer, which was expected to release around Christmas this year, will now be releasing on Valentine’s Day next year.

Aamir Khan Productions made the announcement via an Instagram post on Sunday.

The post reads: “We welcome the decision of the administration to allow cinemas to re-open from 22nd Oct.”

“Due to the delays faced as a result of the pandemic, we will be unable to release our film, ‘Laal Singh Chaddha’, this Christmas.”

“We will now be releasing ‘Laal Singh Chaddha’ on Valentine’s Day 2022.”

The announcement comes just a day after Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray on Saturday announced that all cinema halls and drama theatres in the state will reopen from October 22.

‘Laal Singh Chaddha’ reunites Aamir Khan with his ‘3 Idiots’ co-stars Kareena Kapoor Khan and Mona Singh. The film also features Naga Chaitanya and Manav VJ in key roles.

Directed by Adavit Chandan, ‘Laal Singh Chaddha’ is an adaptation of the 1994 Hollywood film ‘Forrest Gump’ which was based on Winston Groom’s 1986 novel of the same name.

It is produced by Aamir Khan Productions, Viacom18 Studios and Paramount Pictures.

Sanjay Leela Bhansali on the inception of his debut web series ‘Heeramandi’

As Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s upcoming magnum opus ‘Heeramandi’, his first-ever web series, is soon to be released, the ace director shares his inspiration for making the show.

Talking about its inception, Sanjay said, “I remember when I was a four-year-old kid and my father had taken me to a shoot and he said you sit here and I’ll meet my friends and come. I was in the studio and it seemed the most comfortable to me. More than a school, a playground, a cousin’s house, or anywhere in the world, I thought it was the most beautiful place. When I look back at 25 years, I think it’s very precious to me because you have to be blessed to be able to get a chance to make a film and that’s why I cling on to the studio because the studio floor is the most magical, that’s my temple, that’s my everything.”

He further added, “‘Heeramandi’ was something that my friend Moin Baig got to me as a 14-page story, 14 years ago and then finally when we presented it to Netflix, they loved it and they thought it had great potential to make a mega-series. It is very ambitious, it’s very big and vast. It tells you the story of courtesans. They kept music, poetry and dance and the art of living. It shows the politics within the brothels and how to emerge as the winner. It is a difficult one but I hope we come across with flying colours this time.”

The series will explore stories of courtesans and the hidden cultural reality of ‘Heeramandi’, a dazzling district, during pre-independent India. It’s a series about love, betrayal, succession and politics in the ‘kothas’.
