‘Manto would have a lot to say about these times’
manto, nandita das, nandita das movie, saadat hasan manto, firaaq, gujarat riot, nandita das interview, Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Rasika Dugal, indian express talk Nandita Das.

IT WAS in 2008 that Nandita Das first donned a director’s hat for Firaaq, which revolved around the 2002 Gujarat riots. Eight years later, the 46-year-old will once again assume the role for her next project, titled Manto. Based on the life of Pakistani writer Saadat Hasan Manto, the film will focus on his non-fictional work, and has Nawazuddin Siddiqui playing the lead. As the film goes on floors shortly, Das talks about why she chose the prolific Urdu writer as the subject of her second directorial project and how she connects with him. Excerpts:

You are returning to direction after eight years. Why did you choose to make a film on Manto?

For years, I nursed the idea of making a film on Manto, even before I made Firaaq. Now, I feel equipped, both emotionally and creatively to tell this story that so needs to be told. What drew me to Manto was his free spirit and courage to stand up against orthodoxy of all kinds. He wrote with a rare sensitivity and empathy for his characters. As I plunged deeper into Manto’s life, I realised that it felt like I was reading about my father, an artist. I feel he is most relevant to our time.

When did you first come across the works of Manto? Which one is your favourite among them?

I first read Manto when I was in college and was struck by his simple yet profound narratives. I have many favourite Manto works, please don’t ask me to choose. Manto had once said, ‘Why would I undress a society that is already naked? It is true I make no attempt to cover it, but that’s not my job…my job is to write with a white chalk so that I can draw attention to the blackness of the board’. Manto wrote as he saw, as he felt, without any dilution.

Why have you chosen to focus your film on the non-fiction work of Manto?

The film follows the most interesting seven years in the life of Manto (from 1946 to 1952) and that of the two cities he inhabits during those years — Lahore and Mumbai. This narrative is seamlessly interspersed with some of his most powerful short stories, where the line between his work and his life gets blurred. So, the film is not based on any one book or any specific work. It has taken me three years of research, along with my writer Ali Mir, to tell the story that seems most relevant to our times and me. The spirit of Manto is the spirit of the film.

You have chosen Nawazuddin Siddiqui for the lead role.

Manto is a challenging role and very few actors have the nuances required to play Manto. I am glad I have found Nawaz to play this character, which explores a vast range of emotions and is full of contradictions. Also, I have finalised Rasika Dugal to play Manto’s wife, Safia. Nawaz and Rasika will give power-packed and authentic performances.

How would have Manto and his creative freedom survived in today’s India?

The deeper I delve into this project, the more convinced I am about the relevance of Manto in these times. Not much has changed. Almost 70 years later, we are still grappling with issues of freedom of expression and struggles of identity. Even today, our identities lie inextricably linked to caste, class and religion as opposed to seeing the universality of human experience. Banning things and silencing creative expressions is becoming the order of the day. He would have had a lot to say about these times.

How do you connect with Manto?

It is his fearlessness and a deep concern for the human condition that I have always felt most deeply connected to. No part of human existence remained untouched or taboo for him. For him, the only identity that mattered was being human. Manto’s faith in the redemptive power of the written word, through the hardest times, resonates with my own passion to tell stories. Through him, I feel I am able to kindle my own conviction for a more liberal and compassionate world. I feel there is a Mantoiyat, in all of us — the part that wants to be free-spirited and outspoken.

Manto’s writings evoked much controversy and made the establishment uncomfortable. How do you view his work?

Manto was almost synonymous to progressive literature, even though he had a tenuous relationship with the Progressive Writers’ Association. However, if one chooses to label Manto, one cannot argue that he lived on his own terms, with no care for social dogmas. He was irreverent and had an irrepressible desire to poke a finger in the eye of the establishment, often with sharp humour. He was tried six times on charges of obscenity, both in India and Pakistan, for his bold stories. The women in his stories were complex and richly developed, but he reserved his most nuanced and sympathetic gaze for sex workers. When questioned on his choice of subject matter. Manto would often retort: ‘If you cannot bear my stories, it is because these are unbearable times’.

What are you working on next?

Manto is just about to take off and that’s my only focus at the moment.


Donald Trump is outspoken, don’t agree with some of his views: Sunny Leone

Trump, who has been in the eye of the storm for making controversial statements on various issues, found mixed support from Sunny.

“Whether you love him or hate him, you are watching his videos to see what he said. So that is good. Some of his views I don’t agree with and some of them I think might actually help our country(USA) out,” said Sunny.

In 2004 Leone was a part of the “No More Bush Girls” campaign where she and other adult actresses protested against George Bush’s presidency.


The “Devdas” that Bollywood missed
Devdas, Devdas movie, Dharmendra, Hema Malini, Dharmendra hema Malini, Dharmendra hema, Dharmendra Hema Devdas, Dharmendra Hema Malini Devdas, Entertainment news Few Hindi movie buffs know that the Bollywood missed production of one more “Devdas” which would have featured veteran actors Dharmendra and Hema Malini in it, depicting the tragic theme that has continued to appeal film makers over decades.

Few Hindi movie buffs know that the Bollywood missed production of one more “Devdas” which would have featured veteran actors Dharmendra and Hema Malini in it, depicting the tragic theme that has continued to appeal film makers over decades.

The unfinished film which was being directed and scripted by eminent writer Gulzar in the 1980’s, however, was abandoned after making of two reels for unknown reasons, National Film Archives of India (NFAI) Director Prakash Magdum said today.

“We are trying to trace the two reels of the aborted production that featured Dharmendra and Hema Malini. I just spoke to Gulzar who has given some clues as to from where these reels could be procured. We hope to get it to preserve in our archives,” Magdum told PTI here.

As many as six multi-lingual movies have been made based on ‘Devdas’ novel, written by Sarat Chandra Chattopadhyay originally in Bengali, revolving around a love story with an alcoholic protagonist.

The earlier “Devdas” versions featured Kundanlal Saighal and thespian Dilip Kumar.

In 2002, Sanjay Leela Bhansali had directed another version of “Devdas”, starring Shah Rukh Khan, Aishwarya Rai and Madhuri Dixit.

Director Anurag Kashyap gave a modern twist to the old story in his “Dev D”.

Magdum also informed that NFAI has recently stumbled upon a unique collection of Hindi film booklets giving production details of old landmark movies dating back to 1934, numbering 1790 films. This would serve as a database for the golden age of Hindi cinema, he added.


Subhash Ghai lauds Kapil Sharma for not disrespecting icons
Subhash Ghai, Kapil Sharma, The Kapil sharma show, Tanmay Bhatt, Tanmay bhatt video, Subhash ghai twitter, Entertainment news Subhash Ghai has praised comedian-actor Kapil Sharma for not hurting or disrespecting legends on The Kapil Sharma Show.

Ace filmmaker Subhash Ghai has praised comedian-actor Kapil Sharma for not hurting or disrespecting legends on his popular TV show “The Kapil Sharma Show”.

Ghai’s comment came after All India Bakchod’s (AIB) Tanmay Bhat received flak for uploading a “Sachin vs Lata Civil War” video belittling two Bharat Ratnas — legendary singer Lata Mangeshkar and cricket icon Sachin Tendulkar.

Ghai tweeted on Tuesday that Indians are “terribly hurt” by jokes made on elder icons.

“People of India are terribly hurt by new comedy/jokes on elders icons… The inspirations to generations. Learn to respect elders. Stop it here,” Ghai wrote.

The filmmaker, who has given cinematic gems like “Karz”, “Ram Lakhan”, “Khalnayak” and “Pardes”, shared that Kapil’s show is popular and people should learn from him.

“‘The Kapil Sharma Show’ is the most popular comedy show today. Has he ever hurt anyone or disrespected senior icons or legends? Let’s learn from him,” he added.


Would love to work with Vidya Balan, Aditya: Kunaal Roy Kapur
Kunaal Roy Kapur, Vidya balan, Aditya Roy Kapur, Azhar, Kunaal Roy Kapur news, Entertainment news Kunaal Roy Kapur says he would love to work with his sister-in-law Vidya Balan and brother Aditya Roy Kapur.

Actor Kunaal Roy Kapur, who has shown keen interest in trying his hand at direction, says he would love to work with his sister-in-law Vidya Balan and brother Aditya Roy Kapur.

Asked if he would direct a film having Vidya and Aditya, both of whom are also actors, Kunaal told IANS: “I don’t think I have a story right now which is worthy either of them. I am working on stuff that I will hopefully be able to direct, and sometime in the future I get to work with both of them depending on the story or the script is.”

“I would love to work with them, but as of now I don’t have anything that’s ready and to kind of go to them with,” he added.

Kunaal, who was last seen on screen in the 2016 film “Azhar”, is unsure about his “equation” working with his family members.

“The equation will be quite different for working with family. So I don’t know how comfortable or uncomfortable will it be working with them,” he said.

I am very excited and looking forward to becoming a father again: Riteish Deshmukh
Riteish Deshmukh, Riteish Deshmukh son, Riteish Deshmukh baby, Riteish Deshmukh second child, Riteish Deshmukh second baby, Genelia Deshmukh, Genelia deshmukh baby, Genelia Dsouza second baby, Riteish Deshmukh new, Entertainment news Speaking to IndianExpress.com, Riteish Deshmukh said, “I am very excited and looking forward to it. There are just a last few weeks left.”

Riteish Deshmukh is all set to be a father for the second time and the actor is evidently excited about it.

Speaking to IndianExpress.Com, Riteish said, “I am very excited and looking forward to it. There are just a last few weeks left.”

Riteish has decided to take some time off to be with Genelia to welcome their second baby. “I have kept my schedule free for then and have taken some time off.”

For someone who has a hectic schedule, Riteish manages to spend time with Genelia and son Riaan by inviting them on to the sets of his films. “I get them on my shoots and I am glad Geneila and Riaan could come while I was filming Housefull 3. I used to go swimming with Riaan. He used to to swim with Akshay(Kumar) and Abhishek(Bachchan). He is too small and was just flapping around,” said Riteish

Riteish is also not too wary of photographers clicking Riaan at airports unlike other actors who are often seen going to great lengths to protect their brood from being clicked.

“When we were having our first baby, there were two things that we thought about. How are we going to travel with our child with photographers at airport? Are we going try and hide our baby or will we let them click. We decided if they want to click, we have no problems. If they decide not to even then it is fine. With the advent of social media anyone today can click a picture and upload it. I remember when Riaan was born, one of the doctors went into chamber took a pic and posted it on Facebook. Sometimes some people cross the line,” averred Riteish.


Sonam Kapoor shocked with overreaction over Tanmay Bhat’s controversial video

Amid the growing uproar over Tanmay Bhat’s controversial video, which belittles two Bharat Ratna awardees — singer Lata Mangeshkar and legendary cricketer Sachin Tendulkar, actress Sonam Kapoor has come out in support of the comedy group All India Bakchod (AIB) co-founder-creator saying she is “shocked” with people’s “over reaction”.

Leaders of political parties across Maharashtra on Monday demanded action against Bhat over the video.

Not only politicians, many popular Bollywood celebrities like Anupam Kher, Subhash Ghai, Riteish Deshmukh and Satish Kaushik have also strongly condemned the video over Twitter.

However, Sonam feels that Bhat’s video has been misinterpreted.

“Dear Tanmay Bhat, being your friend I know what you say and do is never to offend, but to make people laugh,” Sonam posted on Twitter on Tuesday.

“Don’t you guys think there are issues that are more important than Tanmay Bhat’s Snapchat jokes? I’m in shock with this over reaction.

“Being living legends, I know Sachin Tendulkar and Lata Mangeshkar don’t even know and care about what’s going on! Stop spewing hate on their behalf,” she added.

The video, which Bhat posted on Snapchat, liberally ridiculed and ‘roasted’ Lata and Sachin. It went viral on the social media and other channels and triggered widespread outrage.

Among other things, in the video, Bhat has shown a face-swap. Statements like “why the 86-year-old Lata was still alive” and “who was the better player between the 43-year-old Sachin and Virat Kohli” raised a howl of protests and condemnations.
