SC Dismisses Plea Against 'Indu Sarkar', Will Hit Theaters Tomorrow

The controversial upcoming film Indu Sarkar, which is set in the background of Emergency can release on its scheduled time. The Supreme Court, however, rejects today a plea against to stop the film from being released, which is filed by a woman who alleges that she’s a biological daughter of Sanjay Gandhi. “National interest or the right to know is more paramount than an individual’s reputation,” the Court said. Saying that this upcoming film (Indu Sarkar) is not a document, the Court ruled, “Exhibition of the movie is an artistic expression within the parameters of law and there is no justification to curtail the release of the movie.”

The Court said that “A film’s script has to have a little drama and exaggeration”. A girl who claims that Sanjay Gandhi was her biological father, Priya Singh Paul, had said to the court to stop the release of the Madhur Bhandarkar’s film Indu Sarkar, which was already being cleared by the censor board last week. The film is “full of concocted facts and is totally derogatory,” alleged by her. Madhur Bhandarkar, on the other hand, said to the NDTV just after the decision of the court came out that “It is absolutely a great relief… Welcome that the court held that artistic freedom cannot be curbed”. The director also said that he still had not been able to understand that why there had been so much to oppose the film as there have been already many documentaries being made on Emergency in the past.

The filmmaker also said that he was one of the few directors who came in the support of past controversial releases like ‘Udta Punjab’ and ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’ during their tough time. “But no one from the film fraternity stood by me during this difficult time,” Bhandarkar added. Ms. Paul, on the other hand, had said that the filmmaker had not heard her point of view. “The game is not over yet. I can come to court seeking defamation against Bhandarkar,” Paul said to the NDTV. This upcoming film talks about the controversial state of Emergency imposed by the Indira Gandhi in 1975, which left a time of deep turbulence that experienced civil liberties being suspended all over the country. Bhandarkar, in the last some weeks, also had to cancel a promotional event of the film because of the violence and threats by the Congress workers.

The Congress party, however, distanced itself from the violence that took place recently in some promotional event of the film but said that they are concerned about the fact how Indira Gandhi’s will be shown in the film and how the Emergency period will be displayed. The Former Union Minister M Veerappa Moily said that the film would hurt the sentiments of “many Congressmen and this is what the present prime minister wants”. In the meantime, the Delhi High Court had dismissed a petition on Thursday to prevent the decision of censor board’s clearance given to Indu Sarkar. In a petition filed by a lawyer, it claims that the film showed late Indira Gandhi and her son Sanjay Gandhi in a bad way and was a “propaganda film”.

5 Reasons Why Srk’s 'Jab Harry Met Sejal' is Going to Perform Well at the Box Office

The Badshah of Bollywood, Shahrukh Khan, is coming up with his next romantic film for which all his fans were waiting eagerly, especially girls. Shahrukh Khan is working with ‘Tamasha’ director Imtiaz Ali for the first time, and the public is eagerly waiting for the combo of Srk-Imtiaz. The ‘Rockstar’ fame director Imtiaz has been famous for making some dark movies with a lot of traveling in it, but with Khan, he made a Romantic-Comedy-Drama film. Jab Harry Met Sejal stars Anushka Sharma opposite Shahrukh Khan. Srk and Anushka have worked together before in Jab Tak Hai Jaan and Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi before this, and it’s the 3rd time when we’ll see both working together. The film is all set to release on 4 August 2017. Avoiding the clash with Akshay Kumar’s Toilet: Ek Prem Katha, producers of Jab Harry Met Sejal preponed the date (4 Aug 2017) from 11 August 2017.

In this Article, we will give you 5 reasons Srk’s Jab Harry Met Sejal is creating the buzz among the public and why it is going to break the lukewarm ongoing period of Bollywood films at the box office.

Here are the reasons:

  1. The ‘King of Romance’ is back in his genre

From Kuch Kuch Hota Hai to Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge to many more romantic films, Shahrukh Khan has always been loved in the romantic roles. And that’s why he is called as the ‘King of Romance’. After a really long time, Srk is coming with a full-fledged romantic film. Although it’s not going to be a regular romantic film as it’s been directed by Imtiaz Ali, still watching Srk in a romantic role is always bliss. In the upcoming film, we will see Srk playing the role of a tourist guide in Europe and it’s all about how his journey with Anushka makes them fall for each other.

  1. Chartbuster songs

The very first song they released was ‘Radha’, which was an instant hit. Adding to it, songs like ‘Safar’, ‘Butterfly’ and ‘Beech Beech Mein’ were revealed, and it took no time for all the songs to become chartbusters. Songs have always been an important part in Imtiaz Ali films, and it’s going in the same way for Jab Harry Met Sejal. Jab Harry Met Sejal is a Romantic-Comedy film and for any rom-com, songs play an important role in it. Till now, the makers of the film have not released the trailer of the film as songs have created the great level of buzz for the film already.

  1. The Imtiaz-Srk Combination

Imtiaz Ali is famous for showing the dark side of his characters in his films, whereas Shahrukh Khan does more of the commercial side of films, but watching the combination of Imtiaz-Srk is going to be something very unique and fresh. If you are a fan of Imtiaz Ali films, then you must watch Jab Harry Met Sejal as it’s not going to be his usual film. On the other hand, we will enjoy Shahrukh Khan doing romance very different from his old romantic films in Jab Harry Met Sejal. It is one of the biggest reasons that Jab Harry Met Sejal is going to perform very well at the box office.

  1. End of ongoing dry box office collections

After Baahubali 2, the Indian Box office witnessed lukewarm collections as Salman’s Tubelight and Ranbir Kapoor’s Jagga Jassos failed to create any magic at the box office. At this time, we can expect that Srk’s Jab Harry Met Sejal would create some magic at the box office smash the ongoing dry period at the box office. Jab Harry Met Sejal is one the most awaited films of this year and it has the many chances to perform well at the box office. It is a Romantic-Comedy-Drama film revolving around Shahrukh’s (Harry) and Anushka’s (Character). It is going to be interesting for the audiences to see a happy and a light romantic film on the upcoming holidays.

  1. The strong buzz for the film

In today’s times, it is very important for any film to have a great buzz and this is what going hand in hand for the Srk’s upcoming film. From its songs to mini trails, the Srk-Anushka starrer film started creating buzz at the right time. The makers are yet to release the trailer of the film, which is the most important part of for any film’s marketing strategy, and the promotions are still going on the right track. The one and only the biggest thing to reveal about the film is its trailer, and whenever it’s released, the buzz for the Shahrukh’s Jab Harry Met Sejal will see an exceptional jump. This is why Jab Harry Met Sejal is all set to perform amazingly good at the box office.

Tubelight Failure at BoxOffice, Salman to Compensate 55 Crore to Distributors

Salman Khan’s Eid release movie ‘tubelight’ hasn’t received much love from the audience. The movie has suffered a great loss and if reports are to be believed Salman Khan will compensate for the loss of the occurred because of the movie. Salman Khan’s father, Salim Khan said that, “When a distributor suffers a loss, the producer needs to show some responsibility and share the burden. We, too, have done the same thing,” Khan told the paper. “We met a few of them and are trying to find a middle ground. We will pay back the distributors.”

According to the report the compensate amount is believed to be pegged at Rs. 60 crore. The budget for tubelight was 100 crore.

Directed by Kabir Khan, Tubelight, set against the backdrop of the Sino-Indian War of 1962, was supposed to ape the success of Bajrangi Bhaijaan(2015) which had the same director-actor combination. However, Tubelight failed to the collections of Bajrangi Bhaijaan (2015) and Sultan(2016).

“Sultan released across 4,300 screens and made a whopping Rs 36.54 crore on its opening day,” said a report in India Today. “Bajrangi Bhaijaan, which was Salman’s previous collaboration with Tubelight director Kabir Khan, raked in Rs 27.25 crore on the first day. In comparison, the much-hyped Tubelight seems to have underperformed at the box office on Friday.” The report said Tubelight earned Rs 21.15 crores on its opening day.

Tubelight, Might Not Release in Pakistan, Due to Such Reasons

In India, Salman Khan is not leaving any stone unturned to promote his film ‘Tubelight.’ This is Salman’s most awaited movie and Salman Khan and the film-makers are expecting too much from the film, but, here is a bad news for the film-makers and the star Salman Khan. Pakistan, who always ban almost all the Indian films from releasing in their country, due to one reason or the other is all set to add Salman’s ‘Tubelight’ in the list.

It is heard that, Dabangg Khan’s movie ‘tubelight‘ might not release in Pakistan on Eid or even after that, this will affects the film’s overseas business because Salman has a great fan following base in Pakistan. Few local filmmakers and organisations have demanded the release of the film in the country be put on hold.

The Pakistan Film Association and the Pakistan Film Producers Association, along with various local film-makers are trying to put hold and ban on the release of Salman’s tubelight in Pakistan. They are admant on their decision of putting hold on Salman’s tubelight, as they are seeking for the better bussiness for the Pakistani films; Yalghaar and Shor Sharaba, scheduled to release at the same time, reports tribune.com.pk.

We hear, the chances of Tubelight having a late release in Pakistan is also out of question since the distributors have to pay a huge sum of approximately $5 lac and nobody would be comfortable paying that huge a sum for a late release. Piracy is also a big player and with a late release, the distributors may lose as big as 30% of business due to it.

“Indian films dominate our box office the whole year round. It’s only fair that Eid — being a Muslim festival — should not be. Besides, as Pakistanis, we must support the release of local content first,” said Sohail Khan, producer of Shor Sharaba. Lately, he also added that, “Shor Sharaba is supposed to release on Eid-ul-Fitr and if the government doesn’t stall Tubelight, I will not release my film as a protest.”

According to the sources, the association is planning to write a letter to Prime Minister, Nawaz Sharif., urging him not to give the NOC (Non Objectional Certificate) to ‘tubelight.

Also, they held a meeting here wherein it was decided that the entire Pakistani film industry — even its technicians and other less prominent members — will join the planned protest to stop “Tubelight” from being released on the Eid, reports tribune.com.pk.

It’s been decided that all those related to the Pakistani film industry will support the Pakistani films that are supposed to release on Eidul Fitr,” confirmed filmmaker Altaf Hussain.

Actor Mustafa Qureshi said the government should always give top priority to local projects.

“I have always maintained that there should be a complete ban on Indian films,” he said.

Directed by Kabir Khan, Tubelight also features Chinese actress Zhu Zhu. Another big hurdle for Tubelight is also its Indo-China war subject.
