PC Complains About Mary Kom?

Months of toil and turmoil for Mary Kom have been “harder than the hardest for Bollywood actress Priyanka Chopra, who plays the title role in the biopic on Olympic medal-winning boxer M.C. Mary Kom”.

“Last two days of Mary Kom shoot… It’s been harder than the hardest. Kudos to the crew for keeping it together. All good things come to an end,” Priyanka posted on her Twitter page on Friday.

The National award-winning actress has earlier said that every day of shooting the movie has been inspirational. But she has pushed her boundaries to sink her teeth into the role and in fact, also spent a lot of time with the sports icon to get her act right for the film.

Directed by Omung Kumar, the movie is slated to release on Gandhi Jayanti on Oct 2.

Controversy Breaks Out Over IIFA

While Bollywood stars are gearing up for the 15th edition of International Indian Film Academy Awards, a fresh controversy has erupted against Wizcraft, the event organisers of IIFA.

A travel agent and an entrepreneur, Akarsh Kolaprath, who owns a Florida based enterprise recently filed a lawsuit again Wizcraft for 7 million dollars. He claims he spent around $2, 65,000 on making travel arrangements and consulting for the IIFA. He was even asked to manage hotel bookings for the event.

Three years ago, Akarsh through his family company 7M tours struck a deal with Andre Timmins and Viraf Sarkari of Wizcraft. The deal was to help the organisers in co-ordinating and making arrangements for hotel booking and travel.

As a part of the deal, Wizcraft promised to give them 3 percent of the entire profit. However, they later decided to cancel the services. Akarsh has now sued Wizcraft for abruptly withdrawing the deal without any reason. He claims to have incurred a loss of more than $400,000 in hotel cancellation fees and loss of the 3 percent profit.

“This has affected us very badly; we have been working on the whole thing. I was the one who introduced them (Wizcraft) to the sponsors. But suddenly after we had done all the arrangements, we got to know that they were dealing directly with the sponsors and wanted me out of the picture. Their intention is not right.” He has now asked for a stay on the event till this issue is cleared. “They have been trying to reach some kind of settlement but I will go ahead with my case,” NDTV quoted him as saying.

Abhishek Bachchan: Dhoom is my film and I am the hero!

The Dhoom series has had inspector Jai Dixit as one of the constants and Jr Bachchanbelieves he is the hero of the film which could not have been made without him and co-star Uday Chopra.

Aamir Khan and Katrina Kaif may be the latest starry additions to Dhoom:3, however Abhishek Bachchan and Uday Chopra are reprising their roles of Jai Dixit and Ali Akbar yet again. And Abhishek truly believes that Dhoom is his film.

In a recent interview for his film Abhishek said, ”Dhoom is my film and I am the hero. Nobody can take that away from me. You can be the biggest or the smallest star but ‘Dhoom’ is about Jai and Ali. It is as simple as that. If the characters of Jai and Ali are not there in ‘Dhoom’, the film won’t be there.”

There were reports that Abhishek was unhappy with the way the film was being promoted. The actor minced no words to express his displeasure, “You should ask the people who decide the marketing strategy which evidently isn’t me. It is my film and wherever they ask me to come I will. Obviously, I want to stand by it. If they feel there are certain events where they don’t want me to be around, what can I do about that. Do I feel bad for it?..No, I don’t give attention to these things.” The actor also added, “I think it matters from case to case. In a film like ‘Dhoom’, I think it doesn’t need any stars. It doesn’t need Aamir, me and Uday. ‘Dhoom’ has become a franchise in itself, you can have newcomers and it will do great.”
