Mumbai Polices Anti Extortion Cell (AEC), on Thursday, arrested a 34-year-old man for calling film director and producer Mahesh Manjrekar and demanding Rs 35 crore. The man Milind Tusankar, who’s a native of Khed district of Maharashtra, called Manjrekar posing as the member of the Abu Salem gang. 

As per the police, Manjrekar lodged the complaint with Dadar Police on Wednesday stating that he had been getting threat calls and message for a couple of days. Acting on the complaint, AEC officials traced the Tusankars number to his native village in Khed. He was arrested in Thursday evening. 

As a per a report in TOI, Tusankar, a graduate, used to run a tea stall in Dharavi but had to return to Khed in March due to the lockdown. Ajay Sawant, Senior Inspector, told TOI: As his family has a very limited source of income and the pandemic ruined his earnings, he decided to take an easy way out. He googles and stumbled upon YouTube where he learnt how gangster Abu Salem used to give threats to his victims. He procured the number of Manjrekar from myneta.com and then sent him four to five threat messages.

To complete my film ‘Emergency’, I mortgaged every single thing I owned: Kangana Ranaut

Kangana Ranaut

Kangana Ranaut finished the shoot of her much awaited film ‘Emergency’ recently. But finishing this film wasn’t an easy journey for the actress. She went through a lot of ups and downs while finishing this period drama where she plays former PM, Indira Gandhi.

Talking about all the difficulties she faced to complete the film, Kangana recently said, “Whatever task I take up, I make sure I finish it. But to finish the film, I had to mortgage all my properties, every single thing I owned as I am also banking the film as a producer. Moreover, mortgaging all my property to complete the film wasn’t a big deal. I am someone who makes all my big decisions within minutes. The main struggle was running to banks back-to-back while shooting the film. Somehow, it hampers your work big time.”

Kangana, who made her entry into Bollywood with ‘Gangster’ in 2006, also spoke about her initial days in Bollywood. “When I came to Mumbai, I had only ₹500. So, if I lose all my property after ‘Emergency’ release and I’m completely ruined, it won’t matter much. I am very confident and strong enough to stand up on my feet once again and bounce back. Such possessions hold no meaning for me to be frank,” said Kangana to the paparazzi during the ‘Emergency’ wrap-up party held recently.

Javed Akhtar

Be it ‘Sholay’, ‘Don’, ‘Zanjeer’ or ‘Deewaar’, Salim Khan and Javed Akhtar have worked together in many such iconic films. And lyricist Javed Akhtar revealed how it was writer Salim who encouraged him to become a screenwriter. 

In an interview recently, the lyricist revealed that he wanted to become a director before becoming a writer and a lyricist. Talking about his friendship with Salim Khan, Javed said, “Salim saab was one of those few friends who encouraged me to become a writer. The plus point was I used to live in a room which was close to his home, hence I would visit him often. Had I been living somewhere else, I doubt if I would be able to meet him regularly.”

Adding more about his years-long association with Salim Khan and why they stopped working together, Javed added, “In our struggling days, we were like ‘one team’. We didn’t have any friends, hence we would be together from morning till evening and even work together. Even our dinners would be together, in fact, out of 24 hours, we would be together for at least 15-16 hours a day. But once we tasted success, new people entered our lives and gradually our circle changed. Hence, the rapport we had broke and we couldn’t work together further.”

On the sets of ‘My Name Is Khan’, I couldn’t speak in front of SRK sir: Sidharth Malhotra

Sidharth Malhotra

Today, Sidharth Malhotra has many fans. But the ‘Student Of The Year’ actor remembers those days when he used to work as an assistant director on Shah Rukh Khan’s ‘My Name Is Khan’. Being an SRK fan, he remembers about his first interaction with his idol.   

“I still remember my first day of the shoot on the sets of ‘My Name Is Khan’ in LA. I had rehearsed for the clap so I wouldn’t fumble in front of SRK sir. But he was so warm and sweet, for sure it’s because of his upbringing. He just made everyone around him so comfortable. Trust me, on the first day of the shoot, I couldn’t speak at all in front of SRK sir.” 

Sidharth even remembers how while working on one scene, Shah Rukh gave him some acting tips. “We were shooting a scene and only Shah Rukh sir and I were at that location. It was somewhere on a road. And suddenly he started talking to me and said, ‘You know, you should always come first and see if you can use anything on location as a prop’. I was like, ‘It’s just two of us here, who is he talking to?’ But he knew that I wanted to be an actor. He continued telling me, ‘You’ve to see if you can use anything.’ He’s so sharp that he creates many things on the spot. And from then, my respect and my love for him grew even more,” expressed Sidharth who’s seen in ‘Mission Majnu’ currently.
