Megastar Aamir Khan will be in Ballarpur in Chandrapur district on August 4 to launch Mission Shakti, which aims to prepare local youths for 2024 Olympics. As part of Mission Shakti, selected students from the tribal-dominated district will be trained in six international games, where the focus will be to make them capable to win medals in the Olympics.

Mission Shakti has been conceptualised after the grand success of Mission Shourya, which was a joint initiative of the State Tribal Department and Chandrapur Collectorate to scale Mount Everest – the tallest peak in the world. As part of Mission Shourya, seven students successfully scaled Mount Everest in two separate conquests.

Like Mission Shourya, Mission Shakti is also the brainchild of Maharashtra Cabinet Minister for Finance, Planning and Forest Departments Sudhir Mungantiwar.

Aamir, who’s known for working on projects aimed at betterment of the society, agreed to launch the mission after he was reportedly briefed by Mungantiwar about the mission, the local talents, wildlife and natural wealth available in Chandrapur district.

For the launch of Mission Shakti on August 4, a special sports complex has been developed at Ballarpur. Aamir will inaugurate the complex and formally launch the mission.

BREAKING: Bombay High Court grants bail to Anil Deshmukh in money laundering case

Anil Deshmukh

Bombay High Court on Tuesday granted bail to former Maharashtra Home Minister and senior NCP leader Anil Deshmukh (72) in money laundering case registered by the Enforcement Directorate (ED). However, Deshmukh would continue to be lodged in judicial custody in Arthur Road jail as he is also being investigated by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) in an alleged corruption case.

Justice NJ Jamadar pronounced the order at 2.30 pm on Tuesday afternoon. While senior Advocate Vikram Chaudhari with advocate Aniket Nikam appeared for Deshmukh, a team of Additional Solicitor General Anil Singh with Advocates Aditya Thakker, Shreeram Shirsat and Amandeep Sra appeared for the central agency.

The bail was granted on a surety amount of 1 lakh. The ED has sought a stay on the operation of the order for two weeks. Deshmukh’s lawyers said that considering the former’s health and the fact that he had no criminal antecedents, he should be granted bail.

Deshmukh and his associates have been investigated for alleged corruption between 2019 and 2021. Deshmukh was arrested in November 2021.

And that’s how a film is made – Kantara shows the way! | Movie review

Kantara poster

Social media is buzzing with one word today and that word is Kantara! Yes, another Kannada film after KGF that has caught the people’s fancy and how. In fact, this one goes a notch higher than KGF – because the film has been released only in Kannada with English subtitles and yet – the movie is capturing the hearts of people across India and the world.

From California, London and Berlin to cities across India, high praise is pouring in for the Rishab Shetty starrer and the actor-director’s Twitter feed is testimony to this. Ordinary cine-goers are putting screenshots of housefull bookings, sharing videos of people clapping and whistling in theatres and then profusely thanking the star for making this film.

So, what’s this film about? Kantara (which means forest in Sanskrit) stands out because it has powerful storytelling at its core. It is rooted in local folklore, has the right amount of action and adventure and comes with a social message too. Man versus nature, native customs and local politics, which spans three timelines and a climax that’s to die for, is what the film’s about. Add to this some superlative performances by the cast, a stellar background score by B Ajaneesh Loknath and mind-blowing cinematography by Arvind S Kashyap that serenades Karnataka’s rustic locales and you have what can be called the perfect recipe for a blockbuster film. Telling you more will just be a spoiler! So, what are you waiting for? Go watch!
