Pawan to endorse Salman's Being Human?

Isn't it a brilliant idea to choose Pawan Kalyan as the face of Salman Khan's Being Human brand? From past few days, this has been the talk on social networking platforms, ever since Pawan Kalyan met his fan, Srija, after her recovery from the dreadful disease. Some of the enthusiastic fans came up with this unique thought.

Power star Pawan Kalyan is not just a superstar, he always makes sure that his fans beam with pride, with his utmost geniune behavior. More than his films, his simplicity has brought him the untouchable fame in the Telugu land. Pawan is a hero with a social responsibility. Wait! we better say he is a man with great social responsibility and hence called as a hero. We have seen Superstar Mahesh Babu endorsing a social cause, MARD, which was again initiated by another Bollywood star, Farhan Akhtar.

So, why not Pawan Kalyan lead the brand Being Human, is what the thought is. When we heard about the idea, we couldn't agree more. Don't you also think so?

Curtain rises on film fest despite cinema ban

Riyadh: Saudi Arabia is rolling out the red carpet on Friday for its second film festival in seven years but the deeply conservative country has one major problem - cinemas are banned.
More than 60 short films will compete for “Golden Palm Tree” trophies crowning best drama, documentary and student film categories at a gala event attended by film and television celebrities from around the Arab world, festival director Ahmad Al Mulla said.
Saudi Arabia does not permit conventional entertainment venues such as cinemas so screenings will take place in an arts centre in the Gulf coast city of Dammam.
Organisers said they hope the five-day festival will open eyes in Saudi Arabia to the possibilities of film despite objections from some conservatives that cinema will “Westernise” the kingdom or corrupt its morals.
“I think we in Saudi Arabia have beautiful culture to tell the world,” said film-maker Abdullah Al Eyaf, the head of the festival jury.
“Why should we wait for this country or that country... to tell stories about Saudi Arabia?”
Most of the film-makers being showcased are under the age of 25, said Al Mulla, who sees his role as helping them to develop.
As well as screening films, the festival will include workshops on scriptwriting, music and directing, and talks by industry figures from around the region.
Among the films to be shown is “Grand Marriage”, a documentary directed by Faisal Al Otaibi that tells the story of a two-week wedding ceremony taking place in the archipelago nation of the Comoros.

Haifaa Al Mansour, the country’s first female film-maker, has been invited to attend but she lives outside Saudi Arabia and is unlikely to show up.
In 2013 her film “Wadjda” became the kingdom’s first to be listed as a candidate for a foreign-language Oscar, although it did not make the final shortlist.
It told the story of a rebellious girl who dreams of owning a bicycle in a country where women’s rights are restricted and the sexes strictly segregated.
Without cinemas, “sadly there is no way” to show such films publicly in Saudi Arabia, Al Mulla said, though many end up on video websites such as YouTube. Others are sometimes featured at small, special screenings.

As well as no movie theatres, Saudi Arabia has no film industry to speak of, said Al Eyaf, whose award-winning 2006 documentary “Cinema 500 km” highlighted the kingdom’s theatre ban.
“The whole system is not there,” Al Eyaf said, adding that having a festival is “one of the most important things” in trying to develop a film culture.
This year’s event comes seven years after the first Saudi Film Festival, which Al Mulla also directed.
He was vague about why so many years passed between events, but said this year’s festival was organised “in the right way” by the Society for Culture and Arts, a non-governmental group where he volunteers.

Al Mulla expects an overflow audience at the society’s 600-capacity screening hall on Friday’s opening night.
The festival received more than 120 film submissions, of which around 66 met the requirements to be shown, including that they be less than 59 minutes long and cannot have been shown on YouTube or on television.
“We received a lot of nice films,” Al Mulla said, adding that 10 will have their premieres at the festival, where the screenings will be free and open to the public.
Thirty-four scripts which have not yet been produced will also vie for a Golden Palm Tree trophy.
The winning scriptwriters and film-makers will get grants to help fund future projects, from a prize pool totalling 180,000 riyals ($48,000).

Al Mulla said the festival entries cover a wide range of subjects including crime, society and history. There is even an animated movie and a “very strong” film about human rights.
He said that while the festival must ensure it respects Saudi Arabia’s culture and traditions, there is no formal censorship.
“I think we can screen anything political,” he said.
Al Mulla said he hopes cinemas will one day open in the kingdom because film is “part of culture, part of loving life”.
But first, he said, film lovers will need to convince “people who are scared of art and culture”.

Aamir Khan's 'Dungal' Look Unveiled!!

We had reported earlier that after PK, Aamir Khan will be next seen in Dungal, which is based on the life of former wrestler-turned-coach Mahavir Phogat, who had trained three Commonwealth Games gold medalists and Aamir's look from the film was revealed today!

As Aamir will be seen playing the father of two grown-up daughters, the perfectionist will be seen with close cropped salt-and-pepper hair and a graying beard. Sources claim that Phogat's daughters Geeta and Babita, who are wrestlers themselves, had once appeared on his chat show Satyamev Jayate and when Aamir got to know about the struggles undergone by their father Mahavir, it got him interested in a film based on his life. The source added that for the film, Aamir will be undergoing a lot of training to play a wrestler who trains his daughters to take up the sport.

Mahavir Singh Phogat, who had trained three Commonwealth Games gold medalists, was in the news sometime back for being ignored for the Dronacharya Award for the third consecutive year

Nawazuddin: Don't have a PR who spoke about Kidman film!

There is a price that one has to pay for success, and even master and passionate actor, Nawazuddin Siddiqui, who still has his feet firmly on the ground has to face it. 

One was quite shocked to hear rumours that Nawazuddin's PR had claimed that he is starring in film opposite Nicole Kidman and has scenes with her, when it was not at all the case. When we called Nawaz, he was shooting for Kabir Khan's next (BAJRANGI), and promised to get back to us as soon as he was through, and as always he did.

Here is what Nawaz said, "You know me very well. I don't have a PR as I am here to work and if my director is satisfied, that gives me utmost satisfaction. I don't know where it came from that I'm doing a Hollywood film opposite Nicole."

Giving us the exclusive details Nawaz told us, "You know I had this very nice mail from Garth Davis, where he asked me to do this one scene/short appearance in his film. If you want I can forward it to you. That is it! And I'm doing it. I don't have the gift of the glib, but as my well-wishers had advised I try to talk, give interviews and answer queries. But not while I am shooting, as I have my utmost attention and focus on that. The only person I talk to is my mother who is sick, not even my brothers or relatives. People have to understand that. It really pains me to read such unsubstantiated stories," concludes the humble actor.

Well, that should stall the gossip mills, once and for all!
