AIMAN INAM

MUMBAI: Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s magnum opus titled Padmavat has been on the ledes for quite some time. The story of the flick has managed to invoke religious sentiments of many. However, following changing of its title (from Padmavati to Padmavat) and editing of some scenes, the film is set to hit the floor on January 25, 2018.

Regarding this, sources privy to Newspakistan.tv have reported that the Rajput body has cautioned that janata (people’s) curfew* would be imposed in case of the release of movie.

Supporting the party, Chief of Rajput Karni Sena Lokendra Singh Kalvi has also threatened the filmmakers and protagonists of dire consequences.

“We cannot allow our invaluable legacy to be ruined because of the film as it brings disgrace to Rani Padmavati and is an attack on Rajput pride.

“It presents distorted facts and threatens to shake India’s cultural identity. We will impose a janata curfew if it releases,” said Kalvi.

If the online reports are to be considered, it has further been learnt that the film will not be released in the districts of Telangana, Uttarakhand, Chhattisgarh and Rajasthan.

On the contrary, the Uttar Pradesh government has not issued any orders to impede the release of the said film. However, security officials would keep a watchful eye on the screening theatres as soon as the movie hits the silver screen.

_______________________________________________________________________________ *People’s curfew is believed to be a peaceful protest against the screening of the said film in theatres throughout India.

Atif's new song Paniyon Sa is out

LAHORE: Pakistani crooner Atif Aslam is known for being a singing sensation. As a matter of fact, B-town movies seem incomplete sans having the magical voice of Atif.

In such, the singer yet again mesmerizes his fans with his latest track entitled Paniyon Sa from the forthcoming Bollywood movie titled Satyameta Jayate starring actors John Abraham and Aisha Sharma.

According to the details, Aslam joined forces with Indian singer Tulsi Kumar to sing the track. While sharing the track on his social media, the singer wrote, “the music will turn your daze, into a golden haze.”

Paniyon Sa is a romantic and slow melody, which depicts the special moments of the leading duo i.e. John and Aisha. Helmed and penned by Milap Milan, the production of Emmay Entertainment, Satyameta Jayate is slated to hit the silver screen on 15 August this year.

Relevant pieces published earlier: 

Sources privy to NPTV have been intimated that Pakistani crooners Rahat Fateh Ali Khan and Atif Aslam are all set to lend their melodious voices for the upcoming Bollywood flick entitled Namaste England. According to details, Rahat has already sung a song Tu Meri Main Tera penned by Javed Akhtar for the said venture featuring Arjun Kapoor and Parineeti Chopra in pivotal roles. Whereas, Atif is going to croon a song composed by Manan Shah and written by Akhtar. A little birdie further revealed that Rahat’s song will be a chartbuster just like his previous hit titled Main Jahaan Rahoon from Namastay London whilst, Aslam would certainly mesmerize his admirers with his sensational singing. Talking about Rahat’s magnificent talent, Manan beams: “It’s sheer pleasure to have recorded Tu Meri Main Tera with Rahat sahab, I’ve always been a big fan of his voice. The song was well-received. Our second association had to be a special one and what better than Namaste England.” “We have tried a unique style which Rahat sahab has also explored for the first time. He was excited about singing something so new and fresh.” Claiming that he loves Aslam’s voice, Manan further added, “Atif was always my first choice for Tere Liye. I adore his voice and he’s sung a quintessential romantic song. Javed sahab has written a wonderful song and it’s one of his personal favorites too.” Namaste England is slated to go on the floors on 19 October 2018 across the globe. It is pertinent to mention here that earlier this year Indian activists started up a controversy against Pakistani artists due to the URI attack back in 2016. A lot of controversies started emerging all of a sudden. However, amid all the negativity, hiring Pakistani singers is the glimmer of hope for the people of both states. Also, this measure insinuates towards a positive happening to witness in a couple of past years! (Aiman Inam)
