Zakir Khan says Tathastu can affect one's decision making
According to Zakir Khan, "your decision making will change" after watching his new special. In other words, "if..." changes everything.
Zakir Khan's latest stand-up special, Tathastu, is now available to stream on Prime Video, and the comedian feels comfortable enough with his fans to discuss his private life in the show. In Tathastu, Zakir reveals personal details about his upbringing to an extent we have never heard from him before. While Zakir and his audience may have started out laughing at his trademark "Sakht Launda" jokes, he has since moved on to more sophisticated material. Zakir told indianexpress.com that his audience is progressing alongside him on his journey.
He went on to say that his relationship with his fans is very similar to that of a friendship, in that it begins as casual and grows into something more meaningful over time. When you first become friends with someone, you may joke around a bit, but as your friendship grows, you may find yourself talking more seriously about personal and professional issues. That, then, is the connection I have with my listeners. Now I feel comfortable telling them about my life at home and my family," he said. The emotional weight of Tathastu sets it apart from many of Zakir's other one-offs (Haq Se Single, Kaksha Gyarvi, etc.). Zakir insisted that it was just as funny, despite being more of a personal story and less of a sermon.
Zakir has said that watching Tathastu can affect one's decision making, despite the fact that the show is not preachy. My one and only request is that the audience watch Tathastu all at once. Everything you do from this point forward will be influenced by what you've just seen. There will be a "before" and "after" (Tathastu). Once you've seen Tathastu, your entire worldview and approach to decision-making will shift, he promised.
A Deepika Padukone twist is hidden in the trailer for Ranveer Singh and Rohit Shetty's action comedy Cirkus.
The trailer for Cirkus, directed by Rohit Shetty and starring Ranveer Singh, Johny Lever, Sanjay Mishra, Varun Sharma, Pooja Hegde, and Jacqueline Fernandez, is here, and it promises to make you laugh. Cirkus is a Rohit Shetty film in the director's signature style, and it's the kind of film that audiences of all ages and backgrounds can enjoy together mindlessly in the theatre.
In the preview, Ranveer plays a set of identical twins who are completely oblivious to the existence of their other. Similarly, Varun Sharma has two roles in this comedic adventure. Although the film's lead actor Ranveer Singh receives much of the attention, his co-stars also have substantial roles.
It appears that Ranveer plays a character named "Electric Man" who performs in a traveling circus. Somehow, he is able to control electricity, allowing him to perform amazing feats in the circus. It looks like Johny Lever is in top form, as he has been delivering some witty one-liners recently. Sanjay Mishra's deadpan wit contributes to the trailer's entertainment value as well.
Cirkus, like most Rohit Shetty movies, provides laughs, thrills, and musical numbers. In a song with Ranveer, Deepika Padukone makes a surprise appearance. It's clear that the couple enjoyed themselves tremendously as they showed off their hook steps and the high-energy choreography.
The comedy in the Cirkus trailer is effective, but the trailer suffers from some dull parts, an overly bright background, and a lack of significant female characters or lines.
Tiku Talsania, Brijendra Kala, Mukesh Tiwari, Ashwini Kalsekar, and Vrajesh Hirjee, all of whom typically add color to a Rohit Shetty film, also make their presence felt by dropping quotable quotes.
Aamir Khan Spotted At FIFA World Cup
Fans of Aamir Khan were relieved to see him "smiling" at the FIFA World Cup 2022 alongside his son Azad and ex-wife Kiran Rao following the disaster that was Laal Singh Chaddha.
Recently, Aamir Khan and his son Azad Rao Khan were spotted at the Mumbai airport. They were accompanied by Aamir's ex-wife, the director Kiran Rao. He apparently just got back from a vacation with the family. Now, the actor appears to have been in Qatar for the ongoing FIFA World Cup, as evidenced by a handful of photos and videos posted to his fan pages on social media.
Aamir, Kiran, and Azad are seen in a photo or video together in front of the Lusail stadium in Qatar. He passes his phone to a teammate so that they can take a group selfie. Azad, the actor's son, is wearing an Argentine jersey while his father is dressed in a beige t-shirt and black capris. Even Kiran was dressed casually. Aamir was also seen in some of the pictures giving selfies to his adoring fans.
Some of the actor's most devoted followers took to social media to express their delight at seeing him back in action as the photos began making the rounds online. "Smiling like before," one of them said of the snapshots.
Aamir Khan is a big fan of the sport of football. Not only does he enjoy taking in games, but he also enjoys getting on the field himself. Aamir Khan Productions, his production company, shared an Instagram video of him and his son Azad playing football in the rain earlier this year.
Did Rubina Dilaik Get Pregnant, What's the truth?
There is a "misconception about the understanding," as Rubina Dilaik puts it, regarding the rumors that she is pregnant.
Actress Rubina Dilaik, who was last seen on the dance reality show Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 10, recently came to Twitter to dispel rumors that she is pregnant. This comes after she and her actor husband Abhinav Shukla were pictured outside a clinic in Mumbai.
As the article puts it, "Conceptional error... With many laughing emojis, Rubina tweeted, "Next time we will have to check the building (whether it has any clinics) before agreeing to go even for a work meeting." Abhinav, her partner, responded with a money emoji, while some users were mystified.
When asked by a source about whether or not she and her husband were going to start a family soon, Rubina Dilaik responded, "Would that be conceivable with the pace I have been running to studios and training for dance events non-stop for Jhalak?" Things have been crazy busy over the past few months, so there is just no time to spare.
Sonam Kapoor was mocked for her winter look
The actress Sonam Kapoor was mocked for her cold-weather airport attire.
Bollywood's first true fashion icon, Sonam Kapoor set the standard for all other actresses to follow. The actress is rarely seen by the paparazzi, but when she does, she always looks fabulous. A recent photo of Sonam in the Mumbai airport serves as a reminder that she can elevate any outfit to a new level of chic.
While many loved her winter airport look, there were many who trolled her for pairing a printed co-ord set and overcoat with long boots. Some have even called her a "fashion disaster," wondering if she ripped off Ranveer Singh's style.
Sister Rhea Kapoor posted a series of photos to Instagram showing Sonam's mother out and about in a mint green dress and black blazer. Sonam paired a blazer in the same print with a Gucci bag and black boots for a stunning look. Sonam chose a long overcoat that came to her knees as her second outer layer.
Sonam wore black sunglasses, a Gucci bamboo bag, rings, earrings, and several necklaces of varying thicknesses and lengths. Rhea captioned the post with "Come thru" and a flight emoji before sharing it.

Promotions for Bhediya star Kriti Sanon and actor Varun Dhawan are taking them far and wide. Ahmedabad Is Our Next Stop.
Varun Dhawan's latest Instagram post demonstrates why he's such a fan favorite. The actor, who has a wide fan base, is currently promoting his latest film, Bhediya. During a recent event in Ahmedabad, Varun spoke with a large group of kids. Varun can be seen in the video explaining how his character in Bhediya becomes a werewolf after being bitten. Throughout the clip, Varun explains to the kids how the bite altered his character's perception of sound and smell. Eventually, the actor starts acting like a werewolf, much to Kriti Sanon's delight and the children's roars of approval.
Upon uploading the clip, Varun Dhawan remarked, "Kabhi Kabhi inke bum se Poonch bhi niklti hai. See you on the 25th of ko at the theatre, thank you baccha log. I'll say it again: "Ek dum maaja ma Ahemdabad."
Varun Dhawan posted a picture of himself online, showing off his abs, after filming for the film had concluded several months earlier. Along with the photo, he included the caption, "Last day." In the following twenty-four hours, we will have filmed the final crucial scenes of #Bhediya. This was the last time I looked in the mirror with my long hair and beard and the changes my director Amar Kaushik had me make for this character, as we are not permitted to release any stills from the film. A part of me knows this is not the end, but the start of something new.
On November 25, theatres will show the film Bhediya. Abhishek Banerjee and Deepak Dobriyal also feature prominently in the film.
What Is Happening With Kartik Aaryan And Hera Pheri 3?
In Hera Pheri 3, Kartik Aaryan does not replace Akshay Kumar as the lead. The internet has been rife with speculation that the in-demand Kartik Aaryan will "replace" Akshay Kumar in the Hera Pheri film series. The reality is much less exciting and divisive. Instead of Akshay Kumar, Kartik Aryan is not the new lead.
After it became clear that Akshay would no longer be involved in the Hera Pheri franchise, the character of Raju was omitted, a source told a major news outlet. Akshay's role in Hera Pheri 3 has been cut from the film. The third installment of Hera Pheri features Kartik Aaryan in a new role.
Paresh Rawal and Suniel Shetty will reteam for Hera Pheri 3, which will be directed by Anees Bazmee. The company of Kartik Aaryan is increased. Kartik's success over the past two years has only increased. It's clear from the roles he's chosen that he's out to establish a name for himself in the acting world.
Just a few weeks ago, he wanted to be where Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 now has him: at the top of the box office. He was a leading contender for the role before the debut of Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2. The young actor's career has been catapulted by the smash hit movie's unprecedented success.
The film's director, Luv Ranjan, who is widely credited with launching Kartik's career, has expressed his satisfaction with the actor's success. Is Kartik the new SRK?

Shah Rukh Khan claimed that social media was "driven" by the "narrowness of views."
In response to calls to boycott the film Pathaan, Shah Rukh Khan claimed that social media was "driven" by the "narrowness of views."
Thursday marked the beginning of the 28th annual Kolkata International Film Festival, and Bollywood superstars Shah Rukh Khan and Amitabh Bachchan were on hand to help kick things off. SRK, who is currently awaiting the release of Pathaan, spoke at the event, where he discussed the negative effects of social media and how negativity spreads through these channels. On Twitter, the #BoycottPathaan hashtag has been popular ever since the band's song "Besharam Rang" was released. Social media users are complaining about SRK and Deepika Padukone's green and saffron costumes. A number of people are calling for a boycott of Shah Rukh's new film, and some are even digging up old videos of him.
At KIFF 2022, SRK said, "Cinema and the advent of articulation through social media platforms have now become the foremost expression of human emotions and experience," without mentioning the specific social media reactions to Pathaan. Even though it's widely assumed that the proliferation of social media will have a negative impact on the cinema, I think it's more important than ever in this day and age because it helps shape the collective narrative of our times.
The actor explained that social media is "driven" by the "narrowness of views," and he continued, "I read somewhere negativity increases social media consumption and, by extension, increases its commercial value." As a result of such efforts, the collective story becomes closed off and potentially destructive.
SRK summed up his outlook on the world by saying, "No matter what the world does, people like us will stay positive."
With a glint in his eye, Shah Rukh first addressed the crowd in Bengali, jokingly referring to Amitabh Bachchan as the "son-in-law" of the city. He started off by saying, "First of all, it's great to be in Kolkata, and it's great to see Didi, Dada, the Beloved Son-in-Law of Kolkata, Amitabh Bachchan, and Jaya aunty here. Time has passed and we are finally reunited. I'm overjoyed to see my sweet Rani again... I, however, am looking forward to seeing you all the most. It's been a while since I've visited this place.
When the World Cup final between Argentina and France finally rolls around, Shah Rukh Khan will be there to promote Pathaan.

Indian film star Hrithik Roshan sent birthday wishes to Arslan Goni, the boyfriend of his ex-wife Sussanne Khan. Sussanne published a heartfelt message to Arslan on Instagram and surprised him with a video montage of the two of them in romantic settings. In the comments section, Hrithik wished Arslan a happy birthday, to which Goni replied, "Thank you."
Hrithik also featured Arslan, Sussanne, and her brother Zayed Khan in an Instagram Story. He wished us a "super exciting and duper fit year."
Saba Azad, an actor, and Hrithik's girlfriend, also sent Arslan birthday wishes. Other Bollywood stars, such as Maheep Kapoor, Sanjay Kapoor, and Preity Zinta, have also sent their best wishes to Arslan. As the caption read, "Happy Happiest Birthday my Love," Sussanne wished her significant another well. You inspire me to be a better person and version of myself because you are the most incredible human being I know. From now until the end of time and beyond, you are the embodiment of love for me.
Despite their 2014 divorce, Hrithik and Sussanne remain close friends. Hrithik Roshan and Sussanne Arsenio were spotted at a party in Goa. These two couples have nothing but love for one another, as evidenced by their constant comments on one another's photos.
While speaking with Hindustan Times, Arslan recently revealed that he is not required to defend his private life to anyone. He declared, "Both my professional and private lives are thriving." I'm not trying to keep anything under wraps, though. As for my private life, nobody needs to know anything about it. However, I do not wish to draw unnecessary attention to myself. In no way do I wish to represent that type of individual. In spite of the initial speculation, the trolls, and the positive comments about my personal life, I now have a sense of calm appreciation for the fact that people enjoy reading about me. I'll peruse the feedback every once in a while, and it's always comforting to know that nobody is spewing hate toward us.
Shah Rukh Khan and Wayne Rooney discuss Pathaan during FIFA Final
Pathaan is the guy you call when you're all tied up and can't find solutions, say Shah Rukh Khan and Wayne Rooney.
In preparation for the FIFA World Cup Final, Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan joined football legend Wayne Rooney at the Jio Cinema and Sports 18 studio. In a show of undying devotion, Shah Rukh referred to Rooney as "Pathaan" (the name for the Hindu god of victory).
SRK has stated that Pathaan is particularly exciting for him because he has always aspired to play an action hero. "Who is Pathaan?" Rooney asked Shah Rukh. "Pathaan is the guy you call at the last minute when you are all tied up and can't find solutions," the actor explained. When you're in a jam, when you need a breather, when you need a win, and you know exactly who to call to get it for you, who are you going to call? "Mister Wayne Rooney," Shah Rukh retorted.
"If Pathaan is to be compared to any footballer in the world, for me it will always be Wayne Rooney," he continued. In the end, Wayne Rooney and Shah Rukh Khan shared a warm embrace after Rooney mimicked Khan's iconic hand gesture.
To add, Shah Rukh Khan shared the role in which he would cast Wayne Rooney. The actor was quoted as saying, "Wayne Rooney is the man, same as Pathaan when you want someone to come and save it at the last moment." That's why I'd pick him to be Pathaan.
John Abraham and Deepika Padukone also have prominent roles in the film Pathaan. On January 25, audiences will be able to see the film Siddharth Anand directed.

After cutting himself for the "right n***er" scene in Django Unchained, Leonardo DiCaprio said, "We did it bloodied."
Although Quentin Tarantino's films are widely admired, they frequently find themselves at the center of controversy. Tarantino, a Caucasian, was criticized for directing a film about slavery and for 'overusing' the racial slur n***er (reportedly more than 100 times) in his 2012 release Django Unchained, for which he was nominated for an Academy Award. Some in the audience felt he was engaging in the "White man's savior complex," the idea that others should look to a white person to do all the hard work and "save the souls." Django actor Jamie Foxx has praised Tarantino for being able to get a movie about slavery made. Tarantino, however, has dismissed these claims.
Django Unchained is an engaging (and often darkly comedic) work of art with fantastic performances and an even better soundtrack, despite its flaws and its traumatic subject matter. Do you remember when Christoph Waltz's and Jamie Foxx's characters were talking to Leonardo DiCaprio, and he cut his hand opens banging the table as he addressed them? In the past, Tarantino has asked the special effects team to go all out with the blood and violence for his films, but this time he decided to hold back.
If you've seen the movie, you'll have some idea of how much blood DiCaprio lost during the take despite the fact that he'd been hurt while performing the act. Leonardo later explained in an interview that the commotion had caused even Tarantino to glance up from the camera and give his star a puzzled look: "My hand started really pouring blood all over the table." Perhaps they figured it was a trick of the lights or some other sort of special effects. I was eager to proceed. Looking at my hand was less interesting than seeing Quentin (Tarantino) and Jamie (Foxxreaction )'s off-screen. For the duration of the film, we were bloodied and bandaged up but we still did it. Actor: "I'm glad Quentin kept it in," quoted in The Hollywood Reporter. A round of applause erupted from the crew as soon as Leonardo finished speaking.
Even if no actual blood was spilled, the event in question had to have been incredibly traumatic for everyone involved. Kerry Washington, who played the slave Broomhilda, told THR, "I was in a constant state of panic. For some reason, it kept coming up in my dreams, and I felt incredibly trapped. In terms of my future plans and actions, I was completely powerless. I started to worry about my sanity. Kerry was 'hot boxed', or placed in a metal coffin for her scenes. While playing the racist Calvin, Leonardo's character dragged him by the hair and verbally abused him.
Yami Gautam recalls times when she felt she should have been included in roundtable interviews but was not.
Yami Gautam has implied, once again, that she has been ignored by the entertainment media, months after she lashed out at a portal for publishing a negative review of her performance in the film Dasvi. In a recent interview, she explained why she won't be attending the end-of-year roundtable discussions, which have traditionally been seen as invitation-only events that serve as a public endorsement of sorts for the performers who take part.
Yami stated, "I'm not doing any roundtables,” during an interview with Bollywood Bubble. To that, she elaborated, "With due respect to everyone, and whoever is inviting, and I have a lot of respect for them; the majority of us have grown in our careers while being interviewed by them. It has nothing to do with the media, as I have a deep affection for each and every person I have ever met. As a result of the proliferation of similar initiatives, the whole system is affected.
So, she went on, "It's just like award ceremonies. Indeed, there are a great many. I get the fact that you need to make episodes or stories for everyone. A time came when I, as an actor, thought I belonged on the panel, but alas, you're not invited. At this point, I am being invited, but why would I want to participate in a system where such things are possible when I have the opportunity to make a choice about whether or not to do so? That doesn't prove to me that I've made it somewhere. I will know that I am successful if my work is well received by the audience.
Yami had previously labelled as "extremely disrespectful" a review from earlier this year that was critical of her performance in Dasvi. She tweeted, "Before I say anything else, I'd like to say that I usually take constructive criticism in stride. However, I felt compelled to speak out when one particular platform made repeated attempts to bring me down. This is considered a review of my recent work, which includes the films and performances in A Thursday, Bala, Uri, etc. Totally uncalled for!
When asked about the year 2022, Alia Bhatt said, "It felt like a movie."
"The way 2022 unfolded for me, it felt like a movie," Alia Bhatt, a Bollywood actress, has said. Alia Bhatt has a hat trick of box office hits. In addition to her roles in Brahmastra and RRR, Gangubai Kathiawadi has also produced the film Darling, made her Hollywood debut in Heart of Stone, and created the fashion line Ed-a-Mamma. Personally, Alia tied the knot with longtime boyfriend Ranbir Kapoor and gave birth to their daughter Raha.
Alia said to a major news outlet in 2022, "The year began on a high note for me, both professionally and personally." Every step was a surreal experience, but none of them were too much to handle.
She continued, "The events of 2022 played out for me like a movie." "Be it Gangubai Kathiawadi, RRR, or Brahmastra, there was a kind of build-up of many years and anticipation coming together, given my association with Sanjay Leela Bhansali sir, Rajamouli sir, my first film production Darlings, and of course Brahmastra, which has been in the making for many years.
Alia Bhatt continued by saying that she was in disbelief "at every point last year" that "things were going so well" for her in the interview.

Selena Gomez Apologises For Her “Only Friend” Statement
Selena Gomez recently after claiming that Taylor Swift has been her only industry friend in an interview with Rolling Stone, the pop-artist has been receiving heavy criticism.
After being reminded by social media users of her friendship with Francia Raisa, she issued an apology. In 2017, when Selena was experiencing kidney failure due to lupus complications, Francia donated one of her kidneys to the singer. They claimed to have known each other for many years. Some of Gomez's fans were quick to point out that Raisa is an actor, while Gomez could have been thinking of the music business. On Sunday, Gomez joined in the discussion by writing, "sorry I did not even mention every person I know," under a TikTok clip about Raisa stopping to follow her. Some of her supporters were unhappy with the way her comment made them feel. "Well, what about the ONE person who literally gave you a piece of her body to count as "every person I know"? Do you feel like you have that person's name on the end of your tongue? "Someone posted on Reddit.
The "Lose You to Love Me" singer's declaration about Swift was obviously hyperbole, and on Sunday, some other industry buddy, Nicola Peltz Beckham, posted a picture of a girls' night sleepover with Gomez, further emphasizing this point. Swift, who has been successful since the release of her album "Midnights," has remained silent on the matter.
According to Us Weekly, Gomez and Raisa have known each other for 15 years after meeting in 2007 at a children's hospital.
At age 12, Selena Gomez made her acting debut on Disney Channel's Wizards of Waverly Place, where she quickly became a fan favorite. She made the transition from TV to movies, began a singing career, took on the role of producer, and launched a cosmetics business. The thirty-year-journey, old's a taste of which can now be found on Apple TV+, has been eventful.
