Vir Das walks out of UK gigs to promote his film leaving organizers miffed

Stand-up comedian, musician and actor, the multi-talented Vir Das faced a dilemma of sorts recently when his gigs were planned in the midst of his movie promotions. Recently the trailer of 31st October was launched and the presence of Vir who plays the lead in it was a must. While yet another gig was planned during the same time, Vir decided to give it a skip much to the disappointment of the organizers.

Vir Das was supposed to fly to the UK for the Edinburgh Festival Fringe for a gig but he did not show up for the same leaving the organizers miffed. The actor had apparently returned to India to abide by the film contract, to promote his forthcoming film on anti-Sikh riots (31st October). In fact, it had been learnt that the cancellation was last minute despite the fact that the tickets for the gig were all sold out and the organizers had to refund the same owing to the confusion. On the other hand, it is being said that the team of Vir Das is making necessary amends whilst the organizers, we hear, are currently discussing about another gig with the actor.

Revealing details on the incident, Vir Das who agreed to the fact that his last minute cancellation would have come across as unprofessional also added that he had to do it owing to the fact that the film was his priority. Also, his film 31st October was caught with the Censors for quite some time because of the controversial topic since it deals with the aftermath of Indira Gandhi's assassination. Hence the release date of the film was suddenly decided to be October 7 because of which the actor had to rush back to the country to kick start the promotions. However, he also assured that his team is in touch with the organizers to arrange for an alternate gig.

Anurag Kashyap says he failed Ranbir Kapoor with Bombay Velvet

Anurag Kashyap, recently featured in A.R.Murugadoss' Akira starring Sonakshi Sinha which released last Friday. During the promotions, Anurag Kashyap got candid about acting, filmmaking, failures and more.

Anurag Kashyap's passion project Bombay Velvet starring Ranbir Kapoor tanked at the box office resulting in a massive backlash from the fans. After this, Ranbir received a lot of flak for the kind of films he chose to work in. Talking about the massive destruction, Anurag opened up saying as a team, they had let Ranbir down in many ways. He called Ranbir Kapoor a fantastic artist, a brilliant human being and an actor who wanted to try out something different and experiment which not many stars would want to do. Anurag said that they failed him terribly.

When asked about his equation with Ranbir Kapoor now, Anurag Kashyap said that nothing had changed. They still talk and when they read stories about having a tiff with each other, they laugh it off. Anurag also admitted that he would love to work with Ranbir again as they have a great rapport.

When the stories come up about studios shutting down and there's Bombay Velvet's poster right at the top of the article, it does hurt Anurag much. Anurag Kashyap also revealed that he had gone into depression after Bombay Velvet had bombed. There was a time when he had started feeling that the floods were because of him, the drought was because of him,the accidents here and there happening were because of him. He further added that people had attacked him and rightly so. But, he learned from his mistakes and said that he won't ever try making a film like Bombay Velvet anymore where the production costs will become invisible. Creating Mumbai in itself meant so much money and h didn't realize it then.

Meanwhile, Ranbir Kapoor has his plates full with Karan Johar's Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, Anurag Basu's Jagga Jasoos, and Ayan Mukerji's superhero movie Dragon.

BH Exclusive Amitabh Bachchan confirms film with Aamir Khan for YRF

"It's a great honour and privilege to be working with Aamir and to be working with Yashraj again and also to work with Victor, I just look forward to that moment," said Mr Amitabh Bachchan in a Bollywood Hungama exclusive video interview with Content Head Broadband Faridoon Shahryar today. This is for the first time that anyone from the film has officially confirmed to the media and it happens to be a Bollywood Hungama exclusive.

"I don't know if I can talk much about the film at this moment. I haven't been given permission. All I can say is that it is a very exciting subject," Mr Bachchan said. Reacting to the much publicised title of the film 'Thug' he said that the title hasn't been confirmed yet and in due course of time Yashraj will make an announcement regarding the same. Mr Bachchan stated that his film with Aamir will start early next year.

There has been speculation about Mr Bachchan doing a film with Varun Dhawan for YRF. Mr Bachchan didn't deny the buzz and said that in due course of time the details can be shared about that film. He did confirm that he shall be part of Sarkaar 3, a film with Balki is on the cards, a film for Sujoy Ghosh's production house that will be either directed by Sujoy himself or by Ribhu Dasgupta and a few more are in the pipeline. "Most of the next year is going to be slightly busy," Big B said with a smile.

Mr Bachchan is busy promoting Pink right now and the passion and vigour with which he approaches film promotions or anything that he does is nothing short of genius. I know it is a news report but still I shall end this story with a line from a Nazm 'Nazr-e-Firaq' by Fahmida Riaz on the great Urdu poet Firaq Gorakhpuri:

Naaz karungi khush bakhti mein maine Firaq ko dekha tha.

Similarly we can proudly say that we have the privilege of meeting the great Amitabh Bachchan. I remind this to myself each time I have the honour to meet and get mesmerised by this towering inspiring personality.
