Very few patriotic films: Yami
The film is based on the Indian Army’s 2016 surgical strikes inside Pakistan-administered Kashmir, in retaliation for the Uri attack.
“We anyway make less patriotism infused films, so after a long time the audience will see something like this which is based on a very important true event. We really hope the audience loves the film,” Yami said.
“There’s happy nervousness about the release of the film. The kind of response we have been receiving for the trailer of the film is really amazing. It’s the first time we have made a film on surgical strikes in India,” Yami added.
‘I’ve been advised by my family to not make any official announcement till January 14. The time is not right. But my fondness for Laluji and his family is no secret. As far as contesting the 2019 elections goes, my constituency will always be Bihar. Once a Bihari Babu always a Bihari Babu.’
Actress Mishti Chakraborty, who essays a pivotal role in Manikarnika – The Queen of Jhansi, says the forthcoming film’s lead actress Kangana Ranaut has a good sense of humour that many people do not know about.
Mishti also praised Kangana for knowing the technical aspect of filmmaking very well.
She said, “She is always serious about her work but that does not mean she will create pressure… She mingled with us and I bonded really well with her. I did not even imagine to work with her but I surely looked up to her as an inspiration. She is such a fine actress and just by watching her performance, one can learn so much.”
My life is near the end: Connolly
I am approaching the near end of my life, says veteran comedian Billy Connolly, who is currently fighting against Parkinson’s disease.
In one of the episodes of BBC documentary series Made In Scotland, the 75-year-old Connolly opened up about his battle with the disease. He got diagnosed with the disorder in 2013, the same year he underwent successful surgery for prostate cancer. Conolly said, “I can feel it and I should. I’m near the end. I’m a damn sight nearer the end than I am the beginning. But it doesn’t frighten me, it’s an adventure and it is quite interesting to see myself slipping away.”
