While Ukrainian filmmakers have called out international festivals such as Cannes and Karlovy Vary for the inclusion of Russian titles in their lineups, Liev Schreiber , who has Ukrainian roots stemming from his maternal grandfather, admits he “struggles” with the idea of boycotting art of any kind. “I struggle with the idea of boycotting any kind of art or expression,” Schreiber told journalists at a press conference at the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival on Saturday. “Having said that, the reason that I believe, and everyone always asked me why I think Ukraine is going to win, is because I believe that they are going to come out of this eventually on the right side of history. And I believe that because they have the truth on their side.” Schreiber, who was in town to discuss his initiative BlueCheck Ukraine, stressed that what is most in play right now is truth in the media, saying that “misinformation has become a dangerous new idea in both America and … [Read more...] about Liev Schreiber “Struggles” With Calls To Boycott Russian Art & Says Putin Is Counting On “Chaos & Misinformation” – KVIFF
Recently, Shailesh Lodha quit Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah after being a part of the show for more than 13 years. Meanwhile, it has been speculated for a while now that Raj Anadkat, who is popular for portraying the role of Tapu, may also bid adieu to the show. It must be noted that the young actor hasn’t been shooting for the past few days. However, neither Raj nor the producers have given any statement about it. In the meantime, when Mandar Chandwadkar aka Bhide was asked about Raj Anadkat's exit, he told Pinkvilla, "As artists, we don't know if he has quit the show but he had some health issues due to which he hasn't been shooting for the past few days. I haven't seen him on the set." According to an India Today report, auditions for the new Tapu have begun. For the uninitiated, Raj Anadkat had replaced actor Bhavya Gandhi in the role of Tapu back in 2017. There were rumours of him quitting the show in December last year as well but it looks … [Read more...] about After Shailesh Lodha, Raj Anadkat Quits Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah?

On a warm afternoon in June, crowds in Northwest D.C. celebrated Juneteenth by filling the air with the sounds of drums, toms, and voices, singing throughout the streets. I’m speed walking to catch my train home in order to spend the last few hours of Father’s day with my dad , himself a drummer, who just lost his oldest child and only son, my brother, unexpectedly that Monday. I zoom past the National Museum of African American History and Culture, where I’d spent part of my morning with Pharrell , recapping his second Something In The Water festival, which took place the same weekend. Despite being pressed for time, a sound distinct to the area brings me to a sudden halt: A crowd is dancing to live go-go. Here, t he rich history and culture that museums and music festivals hoped to cultivate played out in real-time. I wonder, briefly, if should just catch a different train and get home a little later. I choose my dad, but the sound is so enticing that w hen I … [Read more...] about How a Celebration of Go-Go Music Became a Scapegoat For Violence in D.C.
To Adele , the decision to postpone her Las Vegas residency is now water under the bridge. The British songstress, who is headlining two festival shows at BST Hyde Park this weekend, told BBC Radio 4’s Desert Island Discs that going forward with her planned Las Vegas residency at Caesars Palace earlier this year was impossible, saying the show simply was not up to her standards. The concerts were initially scheduled to begin Friday, Jan. 21 and run through mid-April. The postponements without any make-up dates remains a sore spot for many Adele fans and critics. “I definitely felt everyone’s disappointment and I was devastated and I was frightened about letting them down, and I thought I could pull it together and make it work and I couldn’t, and I stand by that decision,” she said in the BBC interview. She acknowledged the backlash was “brutal” from fans angry at shelling out money for travel and hotels, not to mention taking time off from work. That anger left … [Read more...] about Adele: “I Stand By That Decision” To Postpone Her Las Vegas Residency
