In the past few years, numerous things occurred that made headlines in Bollywood. From Ajay Devgn defending his flick with Alok Nath; Rangoli Chandel’s jibe at Deepika Padukone; October film being accused of plagiarism; to Pawan Kalyan breaking the silence on Sri Reddy’s rant, several things happened this day. Therefore, we have compiled some of them for you to check out and recall. Have a look at the previous events.
Bollywood actor Tanushree Dutta started #MeToo movement in the Hindi film industry. She also accused Ajay Devgn of featuring Alok Nath in his movie 'De De Pyaar De'. However, he revealed in an official statement that he and his colleagues expressed how much they respect women and would not stand any unfairness against them.
Ajay Devgn added that Alok Nath’s part in the movie was shot by August 2018. But the allegations surfaced in October when every actor had started working on their other projects. Therefore, attempting the re-shoot with another actor would have led to huge monetary loss for the producers. Moreover, Ajay Devgn revealed that Alok Nath’s replacement had to be a joint decision and even a slight change of circumstances would have pushed them for a different combination of actors. He also assured that he was extremely sensitive to the #MeToo movement.
Kangana Ranaut’s Judgementall Hai Kya garnered spotlight for its title. Different organisations objected against the same and demanded the title's change. Among others, Deepika Padukone also joined the protest. Therefore, Rangoli Chandel responded against Padukone’s The Live Life Love Foundation. In one of her tweets, Chandel also wrote that Deepika Padukone’s foundation will make Kangana Ranaut its brand ambassador after watching her film.
Marathi filmmaker Sarika Mene sent a legal notice to the makers of Varun Dhawan’s October. According to reports, she claimed that the Hindi film picked important plot points and characters from her debut flick Aarti- The Unknown Love Story. She added that they did not want money but acknowledgment. Denying her allegations, the makers of October said that they never heard of the film Aarti and did not have full details of the matter. Additionally, they said that they are sensitive towards the filmmakers’ feelings and would look into this and deal with it appropriately.
Ram Gopal Varma and Sri Reddy abused Pawan Kalyan on national television. The former also accepted that he instigated the latter for the same. However, both of them issued a public apology for Pawan Kalyan. But this did not go well with the Telugu actor. Pawan Kalyan took to Twitter and shared photos of the ‘influential people’.
