Anupam Kher Appointed as the new FTII Chairman, Replaced Gajendra Chauhan

The veteran Bollywood actor and well-known theatre personality Anupam Kher has been appointed as the new Film and Television Institute of India (FTII) chairman in Pune. The 62-year-old actor will replace Gajendra Chauhan as a new FTII chairman, reported CNN-News 18. Gajendra Chauhan’s appointment as the FTII chairman sparked a huge controversy a few years back as he was criticized allegedly for lacking the qualifications to be a chairman of such big institution.

Kher also criticized the appointment of the Chauhan as the FTII chairman. According to a PTI report, Kher had said, “I personally feel that FTII represents a certain art form… it does certainly need a person having a great body of work which means he is supposed to know world cinema, he is supposed to know the present state of cinema like editing. But certainly, TII needs somebody who is much more qualified than whatever Ganjendra ji’s qualifications are coming across.” While speaking to CNN-News 18, Anupam Kher’s wife Kirran talked about the development and thanked the Indian government, Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Union minister Smriti Irani for the appointment. She said that she’s extremely happy about the appointment and institute and student will get benefit from this decision.

When Kiran was about the reason why this appointment didn’t come earlier in place of Gajendra Chauhan, the actor-turned-politician refused to comment on it. Kirran Kher is a BJP MP from Chandigarh. The veteran actor Anupam Kher is one of the most respected actors in the Indian film industry. The 62-year-old actor has acted in over 500 films including Saaransh, A Wednesday, and Daddy. He has also played important roles in international movies like Golden Globe-nominated Bend It Like Beckham, Ang Lee’s 2007 Golden Lion-winning Lust, Caution, and David O. Russell’s 2013 Oscar-winning Silver Linings Playbook.

SC Ban on the Sale of Firecrackers: C.Bhagat Shows his Disapproval to it

The Supreme Court Last year had suspended all licenses that allowed the sale of fireworks, wholesale or retail, within NCR. But this year the court temporarily lifted the order and permitted the sale of firecrackers.

Now, after November 1 the lifting of the ban on the sale of firecrackers will only take effect with the Supreme Court making it clear that it wants to see whether the prohibition has any effect on the quality of air in Delhi. It will be a less boisterous but – as is widely hoped – a cleaner Diwali in Delhi. The Supreme Court wants to assess the impact on the air quality.

When millions will celebrate the festival of lights by bursting crackers and lighting lamps, People who already bought firecrackers can still burst them on October 19.

Soon after the Supreme Court announced about the upheld its ban on the sale of firecrackers in Delhi and NCR regions. Some of the well-known faces tweeted about the Ban, In which some are in the favor of Supreme court decision and at the same time some indicated their disapproval over the ban on the sale of firecrackers during Diwali.

Chetan Bhagat tweeted: When they can’t logically argue with you. They resort to personal attacks. Usually means you have won. Stay positive. Always.

It simply shows that he does not approve of today’s court oder that continues to disallow the sale of firecrackers in Delhi and the wider National Capital Region. As per him this Ban on the sale of firecrackers is unnecessary and says that traditions call for the celebration of Diwali with the bursting of firecrackers.

Yuvraj Singh tweeted: Say no to crackers, let’s celebrate a pollution-free Diwali #saynotocrakers #pollutionfree

Unlike Chetan Bhgat Yuvraj Singh is on favouring the court’s decision, assembling towards the change to celebrate Diwali without crackers.

Virendra Sehwag tweeted: RT if this year you will celebrate Diwali extra dhoom dhaam se.

Which simply shows that he is also going with the flow of his friend Yuvraj Singh. Believing in the change to celebrate the Diwali with fewer crackers and more fun.

The court from the last year had stopped the sale of fireworks within the National Capital Region, because in the high rise in pollution levels after Diwali. So this year also the court again put but on the fire court, But the court has temporarily suspended the ban.

Saying that a complete ban would be an “extreme step”, and a “graded approach” was needed to tackle pollution. Each year, after Diwali the environment is affected drastically Crackers after getting burned releases smoke and suspended particles, which other than effecting environment leads to the problem of residents breathlessness and lung difficulties.

The pollution in Delhi was said to be dangerous and the worst in 10 years in the Last Diwali. So the Supreme Court, responding to a 2015 petition by three children aged between six years and 14 months, banned the sale of crackers.

“We are the most vulnerable category when it comes to air pollution, especially from suspended particles and toxins. We are foremost prone to Lung disease like:

  • Asthma
  • Coughing
  • Bronchitis
  • Retarded development of the nervous system
  • And cognitive impairment

The children’s petition had argued, referring to the fundamental Right to Life. Cracker manufacturers challenged the ban as a drastic step that would impact livelihoods, after which the Supreme Court paused the ban.

The court today agreed that a ban “should be given a chance”. When the children went to the court again asking that the ban can be restored.

Hot news: Hrithik Roshan breaks his Silence for the First Time over Kangana Ranaut issue

The actor Hrithik Roshan has for the very first time made any statement on his infamous spat with Kangana Ranaut. The 43-year-old actor not only reacted to the allegations that Kangana leveled put at him but also shared his fact that he never ever met her in person, so there’s no chance of seven-year-long relationship among them. Hrithik, on the other hand, has cleared that besides working with Kangana in two films (Kites and Krrish 3), he never had any other connection with her.

Here’s the full statement of Hrithik Roshan:

I choose to be on a path of creativity, productivity, and constructive work. Anything that isn’t in alignment with that, I tend to ignore, sidestep and treat as a distraction.

I believe that ignorance, non reaction and staying on the path of dignity is the best way to discourage any persistent unwanted intrusions. But Just like a nagging health issue sometimes ignored can turn malignant, this situation for me has unfortunately turned malignant.

In case of the matter at hand, it seems the media has no intention of letting go.

I don’t see any grace in adding to this circus by testifying in defence of my character in a situation that I have no involvement in whatsoever.

I have been dragged into a dirty perverse mess without a choice in the matter. This is something that is not of my making.

The truth is, I have never met the lady in question one on one in my entire life. Yes, we have worked together, but there has been no meeting in private. That’s the truth

Please understand, I am not fighting against an allegation of an affair. Or being childish trying to uphold a ‘good guy” image. I am very aware of my faults, I am human.

I am in fact protecting myself from something far more serious, sensitive and destructive than that.

Sadly, very few from the media or the public seem to be interested in the truth. This has been a hard-learnt fact for me.

If the people are comfortable with a lie because it doesn’t threaten their model of the world where a girl is a victim and the man the aggressor then so be it. I am ok with that too.

Women have suffered centuries of abuse at the hands of men and it infuriates me how some men can be so brutal and they deserve the harshest punishment. But by that logic, if it ordains that one man can’t be vulnerable and one woman can’t be a liar, so be it. I’m ok with that too.

An alleged 7-year long, passionate affair between two high profile celebrities with no trail left behind.

No evidence, no paparazzi pictures, no witnesses, not even a memento in possession like a selfie taken at the alleged engagement which is claimed to have happened in Paris in Jan 2014. Nothing that constitutes an exchange or any sort of proof of a romantic relationship.

Yet we want to believe the other party because the rhetoric is -why would a girl lie.

My passport details show no travel outside the country in Jan 2014, which is the date that this alleged engagement supposedly took place. In Paris.

The only so-called proof presented of this alleged “relationship”, was a photoshopped picture in the media. This was immediately exposed, the very next day by friends including my ex-wife.

These questions are not even asked, because we are taught to protect the woman, as we should. I myself have been brought up to think the same way, by my parents and the wonderful women in my life who have been my rock and support system. I’m deeply grateful to them. I will do my best to teach my children the same values of family and dignity. And yes, I will teach them to stand up for women. Always.

There are 3000 one sided mails which either I have sent to myself or the woman in question has sent to me. The Cyber-Crime Dept. can prove or disprove either story, in just a few days. Towards that purpose, I have surrendered all my devices including laptops / phones etc which are still lying with the cyber cell , but the other party has refused to do so. The investigation hasn’t been closed.

This is not, and I repeat, not a lovers spat. I humbly request people to stop labelling it as one and, for a second, try and see it for what it really is.

I have been harassed by this for 4 years and the well-meaning and probably necessary social bias toward women has deemed me helpless in defending myself.

I am not angry, I have seldom allowed anger into my life. I have not had a single fight in my life, with a man or a woman. Even in my divorce, there was no fight. I, and those around me, have always chosen peace.

I am not here to accuse or judge anyone, but it’s time I defend the truth because when truth suffers the collective consciousness of society suffers. Civilization suffers. Closer to home, families suffer. Children suffer.
