Published

Last week, Rishi Kapoor has informed media and fans that he is going to the USA for some medical treatment. He didn’t revealed the exact reason for his medical tour but lately, it is being spread that he is having a final stage of cancer. Refuting this news, his brother Randhir Kapoor says all these news are nothing but baseless rumours.

Earlier, Rishi Kapoor tweeted, “Hello all! I am taking a short leave of absence from work to go to America for some medical treatment. I urge my well-wishers not to worry or unnecessarily speculate. It’s been 45 years “plus”of wear and tear at the movies. With your love and good wishes,I will be back soon!”

Talking to TOI, Randhir Kapoor said, “We don’t know yet what is the exact nature of his ailment. Rishi himself doesn’t know what he’s suffering from. He has not even started undergoing tests there. how can people speculate that he has cancer and that too, one that has escalated to an advanced stage. Let him undergo tests peacefully; whatever the results, we will let everyone know. He only reached America two-three days ago and so far, he was being prepared for the tests that he has to undergo. Depending on what the results are, his line of treatment, medication and other modalities will be decided upon. It’s not fair to speculate things just like that.”

Due to medical treatment in USA, he couldn’t able to attend the funeral of his mother Krishna Raj Kapoor. After the death, Neetu tweeted,  “She was such a huge influence in my life admired her elegance Wit Generosity Warmth !!! She will always stay in my heart #noonelikeher#besthumanbieng #lovedher#bestfriend.”

Altogether, Kapoor’s family going through a lot in the last few weeks. We hope, things do get normal for the Kapoor’s clan.

Director Amit Masurkar: ‘Sherni’ was a difficult film to score music

“Sherni” director Amit Masurkar has opened up on the music of the film, saying he is glad to have collaborated with composers Naren Chandavarkar and Benedict Taylor for the project.

“‘Sherni’ was a difficult film to score because of the complex intersections in the story. I felt safe with Naren and Benedict. I knew they would put the story and the theme first. They have the sensitivity and depth to understand a layered narrative and not judge characters or events. They are open-minded, collaborative and have a genuine love for cinema,” Amit tells IANS.

The music composers made their foray into the industry with Anurag Kashyap’s “That Girl In Yellow Boots” and shot to fame with “Udta Punjab” and “Newton”.

Talking about working with Amit again after “Newton”, Benedict says: “With ‘Newton’, we got in on the project quite late but with ‘Sherni’ we were part of it much earlier on. By then we had already developed a comfort level and understanding with Amit.”

Naren adds: “He (Amit), along with writer Aastha Tiku and the editor Dipika Kalra, didn’t discuss the brief in terms of music, but more the politics and ideas they wanted to come across. They trusted our vision and encouraged us to take it in a musical direction we felt appropriate. This coupled with the delicate moral balance they had outlined made it both a freeing and challenging process.”
