Bigg Boss 11: I’m rooting for Vikas Gupta, says Season 10 winner Manveer Gurjar

0

By: IANS | Mumbai | Published: January 13, 2018 7:01 pm Bigg Boss 10 winner Manveer Gurjar wants Vikas Gupta to win current season.

Bigg Boss season 10 winner Manveer Gurjar says that he wants Vikas Gupta to win the current season of the reality TV show.

Manveer is debuting in Bollywood with Aaj Ki Ayodhya and during media interaction at the launch of the film, the reality show winner said that he “wants to salute everyone who participated in Bigg Boss”.

“I don’t think its commoner versus celebrity scene. Whoever has entered Bigg Boss house is a celebrity. This divide has been created by people who are sitting outside. Contestants like Bandgi (Kalra) or Arshi (Khan) are celebrities in their own right but now it’s up to them as to how they pursue themselves in future,” he said.

“As far as last four finalists of Bigg Boss are concerned, I find Vikas (Gupta) very positive. I am rooting for Vikas Gupta. I want him to win Bigg Boss. I feel people should support participants who they admire,” he added.

With Akash Dadlani out of the game, there are four contestants left in the Bigg Boss house – Puneesh Sharma, Hina Khan, Vikas Gupta and Shilpa Shinde.

Manveer shared close bond with Bigg Boss host Salman Khan, so when asked whether he will approach Salman to promote his film Aaj Ki Ayodhya, Manveer said, “It’s too early to talk about it. I met Salman bhai (Khan) after I won Bigg Boss but at that time, I didn’t speak about my film. Once the movie gets completed, then I will talk to him.”

Bigg Boss 11’s finale will air tomorrow on Colors TV.

What Bill Hader Doesnt Miss About Saturday Night Live

0

Bill Hader had left Saturday Night Live after eight incredibly successful seasons, moved to Los Angeles to pursue more film and television work, and found himself with a dilemma. “I got this development deal at HBO,” he tells Mike Hogan on this weeks episode of Little Gold Men. He had weekly meetings at a coffee shop with his friend, Silicon Valley show-runner Alec Berg, because “Man, they gave me money to come up with a show, I gotta come up with a show.” Out of frustration one day he suggested to Berg, “What if I was a hitman?” Berg responded, “I hate hitmen, the skinny ties and the two guns and slow motion and all that bullshit.”

“I said, No no, itll be me,“ Hader continued. “And he went, Oh, thats funny.”

And that was the beginning of Barry, the dark HBO comedy series that just wrapped its first season, with Hader in the title role as a hitman who catches the acting bug while in the middle of a job in Los Angeles. As the shows creator and director of the first three episodes, Hader is a dominant creative voice on the series, revealing not just a more dramatic side than his S.N.L. tenure allowed, but a skill with filmmaking style, up to and including a very large Yojimbo reference.

On this weeks Little Gold Men podcast Hader talks about Barrys origins, and the inspiration he took from his own years of struggling as an actor in L.A., as well as a wide range of other topics: how hard it is to pretend to be a bad actor, what he doesnt miss about starring on Saturday Night Live, and what Ellen Burstyn did one year at the Emmys that was “the awards equivalent of walking away from an explosion in slow motion.”

Also on this weeks podcast, Richard Lawson, Katey Rich, Joanna Robinson, and Sonia Saraiya reveal their hopes for the Emmy nominations, which will be announced on July 12. Favorites include the cast of GLOW, some key supporting players on Westworld, underrated network gems like Good Girls and The Good Place, and maybe, just maybe, some love for Killing Eve.

Antonio Brown Looks Sad as He Lands in Miami Post-Patriots Firing

0

Backgrid

Antonio Brown is back home after a turbulent past few weeks and an effective firing from the New England Patriots — and he doesn't look too happy about it

The embattled wide receiver was seen exiting his private jet Saturday as he touched down in Miami — where he owns a home. As he walked the runway, AB had an incredibly pained look on his face … which is understandable after everything that's happened.

BTW, he was wearing Supreme gear here up top — not Nike, which just dropped him this past week amid the mounting allegations. He also carried a Louis Vuitton briefcase.

Waiting for your permission to load the Instagram Media.

While he looked pretty down in the dumps when he got back to Miami, AB was trying to put on a brave paid face before leaving the airport in New England … posting a photo of himself sitting on top of a Rolls-Royce with the caption, "The Journey #Iknowimspecial #Whytheyplaying." Looks like he snuck in some Nike after all in his footwear.

As we reported … Antonio was released by the Patriots Friday after a whirlwind of bad news for him, including a lawsuit alleging rape and sexual assault … a Sports Illustrated story detailing more alleged sexual and behavioral misconduct … as well as a reported attempt to contact one of his accusers with menacing texts.

Did Khloé Kardashian’s Boyfriend Get Too Close to Another Woman Right Before She Gives Birth?

0

The reports come just a day after Kardashian shared a photo of herself kissing Thompson as he held her baby bump.

Khloé Kardashians boyfriend Tristan Thompson was allegedly videotaped getting close to an unidentified woman Saturday in a New York City lounge.

A source confirms to PEOPLE the athlete was at the PH-D Lounge in Manhattan on Saturday night.

The NBA star, 27, was seen speaking closely with a brunette in photos and footage published by the Daily Mail. The athlete is expecting a baby girl with Kardashian, 33, who is nine months pregnant, and hes been in New York for the Cleveland Cavaliers game against the Knicks.

Kardashian and Thompsons reps did not immediately respond to PEOPLEs request for comment.

In the photos, the mystery woman stood close to a man, who appeared to be Thompson, as she wrapped an arm around his shoulder. His face was hidden by a white hooded sweatshirt.

TMZ and The Shade Room published a video of Thompson and the brunette allegedly entering his hotel at 5 a.m.

And TMZ also posted footage recorded in October 2017 allegedly depicting Thompson kissing one woman while a different woman groped him at the Darna hookah lounge outside of Washington D.C.

The reports come just a day after Kardashian shared a photo of herself kissing Thompson as he held her baby bump.

The Revenge Body star confirmed they were expecting in December when she posed with Thompson wearing only Calvin Klein underwear as they embraced her baby bump. (Thompson also shares a 16-month-old son, Prince Oliver, with ex-girlfriend Jordan Craig.)

From Surge to Showgirls: A Guide to the 90s References in Everything Sucks!

0

In Everything Sucks!, Netflix’s latest time capsule of a TV series, a group of teenagers feel their way through the ups and downs of high school in a town called Boring, Oregon. The show is set in 1996, which you’d be able to guess even if nobody ever spoke the year aloud, thanks to scenes like the one in Episode 3 when one freshman explains Showgirls to another by saying that “it makes Species look like FernGully”—because in the movie, Jessie Spano “totally does it with the guy from Dune!”

The show is filled with these sorts of obsessive time stamps—nostalgic references that were deeply personal to show-runners Michael Mohan and Ben York Jones. Mohan himself graduated from high school in 1998, the same year that Jones started ninth grade; setting Everything Sucks! in 1996 was a way for them to combine their shared experience. In a chat with Vanity Fair, the show-runners take us through all their favorite nostalgic references in the series, from the sugary delights of Surge and Zima to a sneaky Freaks and Geeks Easter egg.

Vanity Fair: Let’s start with the music video Luke makes for Kate in the second episode—a tribute to Oasis’s “Wonderwall” that parodies classic 90s videos. How did you decide which videos to spoof?

Michael Mohan: A lot of it was like, “What could these kids pull off?” One of the ones we were planning on doing was Jamiroquai’s “Virtual Insanity,” and as we got into the logistics of that, we were like, “These kids would have no idea how to even try to do that.” But we wanted super recognizable ones, like Nirvana’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit.” There are some deep cuts—like Des’ree. Her video for “You Gotta Be” was huge at the time, but hasn’t really entered the pantheon of videos. It’s a video they would have been exposed to. [Luke’s video] starts with Oasis’s “Wonderwall,” it goes into Alanis Morissette’s “Ironic,” then it goes to Radiohead’s “Fake Plastic Trees,” Des’ree’s “You Gotta Be,” “Smells like Teen Spirit,” then “No Rain” by Blind Melon.

The kids in the cast are so young. Did they have any frame of reference for any of these songs?

Mohan: Some of them had heard of the songs a little bit, but we were educating them as well. What was hilarious was sometimes there were things we took for granted, that we thought they would be fully aware of, that they had no idea about. There’s a lot of videotapes in the show. One of the very, very first scenes, there’s a shot of a VCR, where Jahi [Di’Allo Winston, who plays Luke] had to just put a tape in. We’re rolling, I call “action,” and then he puts the tape in the wrong way. We were like, “Dude, what’s happening here?” He’s like, “I’ve never used these before! I don’t know what I’m doing!”

That makes me feel ancient.

Ben York Jones: This entire summer was a process of Mike and I feeling increasingly ancient.

I have to ask about Surge and Zima, too.

Jones: Surge felt like the cool-kid drink. It was so caffeinated. If you weren’t quite interested in smoking cigarettes or drinking, the idea of getting a Surge and drinking it—it was like as close to that as I could come. It’s just sugar water, but there’s something badass about it.

The Americans: Keri Russell on Finally Unraveling Elizabeth Jennings

0

The Americans ended its Emmy-nominated, six-season run this past May. But Keri Russell still jokes that she isnt sure why creator Joe Weisberg, a former CIA officer, cast her as the dramas female lead. After all, Elizabeth Jennings is an ice-cold KGB spy who has no qualms about killing countless men and bedding others for intel.

“I thought Elizabeth should be, kind of, Brigitte Nielsen—this cool, sexy, spy lady,” Russell recently told Vanity Fair, deadpanning, “Im pretty much afraid to answer my phone. My friend Mandy, who was on Felicity with me, used to call me and, after Id say, Hello, shed say, Why do you sound so afraid? You know its me calling!”

Russell has a point—her first acting role was on the Mickey Mouse Club. Before The Americans, Russell was best known for playing the wholesome title character on WBs college drama Felicity. When the show premiered in 1998, The New York Times noted in its review that Russell was “immensely likable” as a character “who struggles to stand up for herself.” Fifteen years later, playing Elizabeth Jennings in the series premiere of The Americans, Russell rammed the head of her rapist through a wall during a full-contact fight that left him bloody and struggling for breath.

“I rebelled in her, kind of, panther-like sub-fearlessness,” said Russell, who is nominated for her third Emmy for the performance. “Elizabeth is very much an adult to me—she dresses in silk shirts, her hairs blown out, she has tough boots on, shes not afraid to look everyone in the eye and live in the uncomfortable weird silences. Shes not trying to make anyone feel better about anything. As a mother, shes like, You can take care of yourself, Ill take care of myself. I loved that. She felt very adult to me, whereas I am not always. My six-year-old can get anything from me. She asks me twice for something, Im like, okay you can have it.”

Unlike most depictions of women on television, Elizabeth is cold, contained, and an unapologetically bad mother. In her marriage, she is the emotional enigma, while husband Philip (Matthew Rhys) is more direct about his feelings. As such, Russell had to find ways to subtly telegraph her emotions between shifting aliases, allegiances, and appearances.

“All the disguises and spy stuff were such clever storytelling tools in showing different sides of Philip and Elizabeth—especially Elizabeth because she is so guarded,” said Russell. “I feel like those disguises and through those other covers she got to reveal little parts of herself that Elizabeth wouldnt necessarily choose to reveal. For someone who appears on the surface as so cold and unapproachable and un-relatable, I think we were really able to unravel that as the seasons went on. That being said, I loved how true Joe and [co-showrunner Joel Fields] kept the character, Elizabeth, until the very end. She didnt, all of a sudden, start being the nice mom everyone wished she was. It kept her true, which is unusual for female characters.”

Elizabeth is able to overcome all kinds of obstacles and weapon-wielding enemies during the series run, yet, in the dramas final season, it is her teenage daughter Paige (Holly Taylor) who trips up the otherwise unflappable spy.

“I think its absolutely hilarious that her undoing was this 16-year-old,” laughed Russell. “And also, Paiges rebellion was not smoking crack or fucking a million boys at school. It was her wanting to study the Bible and become Christian. That was too much for Elizabeth. She couldnt handle it.”

After embodying Elizabeth for about 70 episodes, Russell reached the emotional depth of the character during the finale when Elizabeth has to leave both her children—Paige and Henry (Keidrich Sellati)—in America. “I think that [heartbreak] is such a completely new feeling and emotion for her. I think theres this misconception about Elizabeth that she didnt love her kids as much as other mothers. I think she fiercely loved them. I think, in that moment when her children are being taken away, her emotions really come to a head for the first time. To me that was unusual that [the writers] even allowed Elizabeth to cry and be that upset.”

Russell, who is the mother of three, related in part: “Your kids break you down. They just do. I tangle with mine, especially with my oldest. . .those scenes with [Paige] were fun because they really put her off center.”

Taxiwaala teaser: This Vijay Deverakonda starrer promises to be a blast

0

Chennai | Published: April 19, 2018 11:00:46 am Vijay Deverakonda looks like he has just stepped out of an absurdist comedy film. Top News

The Taxiwaala teaser is fun. We start off with a still sequence, move through seemingly unrelated visuals to a classroom. Here we see a professor tell a class that a man killed his family trying this, and this looks like a video game console. After a few psychedelic images, we get the firebrand Vijay Deverakonda. And, he looks like he has just stepped out of an absurdist comedy film. If the one-minute teaser hints at so many genres, it would fun to see how the final film would turn out to be.

The crew seems to know this as well! The voiceover is as quirky as the teaser itself, welcoming us to the folk film they have with great dance performances, wonderful actors, and actresses. (A special shout-out to the team for having subtitles, non-Telugu cinephiles extend their gratitude). It is tough to not be intrigued by the mixture the team seems to have cooked up. Sleek shots, funky music, and some stylised editing — Taxiwaala might just be an interesting ride this summer. And if we are made to have as much as fun Vijay Deverakonda had shooting for this, the makers have a winner on their hands.

Tweeting out the teaser, no wonder Vijay calls it the third part of his new-age cinema. “After #Pellichoopulu and #ArjunReddy comes My Part 3 of the New Age Cinema – New Directors! New Concepts! New Starcasts! And big guns GA2 and UV.” he wrote.

Apart from Vijay, the film also stars Priyanka Jawalkar, Malavika Nair, Ravi Verma, Sijju Menon and Kalyani among others. Directed by Rahul Sankrityan, Taxiwaala is presented by UV Creations and GA2 Pictures.
