Recently, in an interview with a publication, Anurag Kashyap spoke about the worldwide success of SS Rajamouli's magnum opus RRR. While talking about India's Oscars entry, he said, "India might have a nomination in the final five if RRR is the film they pick. I don't know what film anybody is going to pick.

In this case, it was a wrong precedent. This is ethically wrong. You can share your preference, but why are you saying which film shouldn't go (to the Oscars)?" Agnihotri told the tabloid.

For quite some time, it has been rumoured that actress Samantha is house-hunting in Mumbai.

Her gleaming cameo in a song from Pushpa kept people talking about it for weeks. It won't be an … [Read more...] about Samantha Ruth Prabhu Likely To Buy New House In Mumbai; Check Cost Details Here!

Speaking about Karan, the Gangs Of Wasseypur director said that he knew his father and said that the filmmaker was a late discovery because he comes from the privileged.
