Mumbai, June 20 (IANS) ‘Tera Ishq Mera Fitoor’ fame actress Shivangi Verma shared how music keeps her inspired and gives her a push to do things better.

Ahead of the ‘World Music Day’, Shivangi said: “Music inspires me in many ways. It gives me the push to do things better. If I am taking a shower or I am cooking or I am getting ready or eating food or driving or waiting for somebody for everything, I need music; it kicks me differently.”

“Whenever I am not in a mood to do something, I play energetic music, and it gives me a push to do it. Then I have a different playlist for when I’m with friends. I have a different playlist when I’m at home. So definitely, it has a different impact on my life,” she shared.

Though she doesn’t have a favourite genre, she can listen to Bollywood songs all day. Shivangi said that it helps her a lot.

Speaking about her favourite singers, she said: “I have always been a fan of Mohammed Irfan. I have worked with him on the music video ‘Dil Toota Hi Raha’. And my second favourite singer is Raj Burman. Again, I was always his fan, and then I did a song with him, ‘Tumko Dekha Toh Pyaar Aagaya’. But there are other singers also that I love to listen to, like Arijit Singh and KK.”

Mumbai, June 20 (IANS) Actor Pankaj Tripathi, who is known for ‘Singham Returns’, ‘Gangs of Wasseypur’, ‘Masaan’ and several other projects, has said that actors are just puppets and do what writers or directors ask them.

'Jahangir National University': A realistic take on student politics and nationalism – IANS Rating: ***1/2

Published

on

By

Mumbai, June 20 (IANS) Director Vinay Sharma’s ‘Jahangir National University’ talks about the anti-national activities happening in a renowned university situated in the national capital of India. It seems to be inspired by the real incidents that came to light almost a decade ago.

The story revolves around Krishna Kumar (Atul Pandey), the president of the student association (Left Wing) at Jahangir National University, Delhi.

Saira Rashid (Shivjyoti Rajput) is another strong student leader in Krishna’s team who strongly believes in communism.

On the other side, there is another group of student association headed by Saurabh Sharma (Siddharth Bodke) and his team members like Richa Sharma (Urvashi Rautela) and Baba Akhilesh Pathak (Kunj Anand), etc., who strongly follow nationalism and Hinduism’s so-called right wing. Both of these student associations are backed by big national political parties. Krishna Kumar and his left-wing team do many anti-national activities on the university campus. Slogans like “Afzal hum sharminda hain, tere kaatil zinda hai” and “Bharat tere tukde honge, insha-allah insha-allah” are used by the left-wing team headed by Krishna Kumar, and here the actual twist starts in the film. The climax is the real crux of the story. So, to know what happens at the end, one must watch the film.

Atul Pandey, in the role of Krishna Kumar, has fully justified his part. On the other side, Siddharth Bodke and Shivjyoti Rajput are another attraction of the film. They have impressed the audience with their mind-blowing performances. Apart from them, other artists like Kunj Anand, Urvashi Rautela, Ravi Kishan, Piyush Mishra, Vijay Raj, Rashami Desai, and Jennifer Piccinato have also done justice to their parts.

Although music does not play a major role in this drama-thriller, the music of Aehmad Najeem, Vijay Verma, and Saarnash Maide is quite impressive.

Overall, this is one of the finest drama-thriller cum political drama movies that may interest any Indian because of its relatability to a real incident that happened almost a decade ago in a popular university in our country. The film has almost everything that an audience expects from a good Indian film, be it drama, thrills, emotions, action, love, betrayal, and entertainment. So, why wait? Go and watch it in your nearest cinema hall.

By

Los Angeles, June 20 (IANS) Oscar-winning actress Lupita Nyong’o revealed that she injured her vocal cords while working on the upcoming animated movie ‘The Wild Robot’.

The actress had to wear a badge to inform fans why she was keeping quiet at shows.

Appearing on ‘Late Night With Seth Meyers’, she said: “Sometimes people, fans thought I was being rude because I wouldn’t say anything. I’d just be like, (striking a pose).”

“So, then, I just thought, okay, let me let people know what’s going on and that way they’ll have sympathy for me instead of hatred.”

The actress said: “Well, okay, so, she’s a robot. And she goes through this journey to finding, I guess, what we would call humanity, like empathy.”

“And so, at the start of the movie, I chose to do this very kind of like super positive voice. And it was just not in my local register, which is a lot lower.”

“And so, I did it for way too long over a number of days, and I got a vocal polyp. And so, I lost my ability to speak. And my doctor put me on vocal rest. I was on vocal rest for three months.”
