When the news about that a movie based on the real life of the sports star Mary Kom is in the making started circulating, everyone was thinking who would portray her. After all, Mary Kom is a five-time world champ and Olympic medal winner in boxing. Later, the news came out that directors have decided Priyanka Chopra as the actress portraying Mary Kom. Many bloggers protested that the choice is wrong. People commented that she looks nothing like MC Mary Kom and what is she doing in the movie. Directors and producers were called racists as they did not consider any Manipuri actress for the role.
Apart from all the criticism, let us be honest with ourselves. Would anyone comment on the movie if it was not a big banner film like that of Bhansali? All because it is a big banner film, people need to make out something. Anyhow sports films have always been controversial in India. People are more engrossed to cricket than anything else. At last, the movie was a super hit. After all Bollywood has got many talented actors. Critics never thought about the talent that was needed to portray. How it can be portrayed and who would portray it the best. They just thought about making a bubble trouble out of it, and so they made. The success of the film is itself an answer to how correct it was to take Priyanka Chopra in the movie.
People think comedy to be a very easy task though it is not so. Being a comedian is a very skilful task that cannot be done by all. Being a comedian is not everyone’s cup of tea. One such great comedian in the history of Indian Cinema was Deven Verma. He became famous in the 60s and continued his acting in the 70s and 80s. His straight face humor was very well appreciated. People of all age groups adore him. He performed wonderful roles in famous movies like Chor Ke Ghar Chor, Khatta Meetha, Gol Maal and Angoor.
He debuted from the movie Dharmputra in the year 1961. He spent majority of his lifetime in Pune. He completed his college from Nowrosjee Wadia College for art and science, Pune. After completing his graduation, he moved to the city of dreams. He then married Rupa Ganguly, daughter of actor Ashok Kumar. He received his first filmfare award for his role in the movie Chori Mera Kaam. He later turned into a director and producer. He directed a few famous films like Besharam, Yakeen, Naadan, etc. After making his fans laugh for many years, the great comedian passed away due to h
Lord Ganesha is considered to be the destroyer of all obstacles. His birthday is celebrated a Ganesh Chaturthi. In Maharashtra, during Ganesh Chaturthi, everyone chants the words “Ganpati Bappa Morya”. It is a ten day long festival celebrated with great fun and joy. One can find folks gathering outside the famous Siddhi Vinayak Temple in Mumbai. This temple is considered to be the most pious spot for Ganesha worshipers. People make pandals, decorate it, place a clay statue of Lord Ganesha in it and worship it. The festival comes to an end with devotees immersing the idol in a river or sea.
The significance of the Lord being immersed in water is that, they take away our sins with them with the promise to return back again the next year. The same festival is celebrated in Tamil Nadu with name Vinayaka Chaturthi. Though the name is different, celebration is done with the same zeal and excitement. In Kerala, people celebrate Ganesh Chaturthi by doing milk Abhishekam. Elephants are worshipped all over Kerala. In Pune, people worship Lord Ganesha in the form of leaves. In Goa, it is a very homely affair. People celebrate it privately at homes, with family gatherings.
We need to thank so much to each and everyone on bringing such an important issue (the AIB knock out) to the forefront. It was just a comedy show that unfortunately termed out to be a national shame. National shame is not the show, but it is those people who have no idea of what is presently more important to be discussed about the country. Many known personalities jumped into the social media discussion of calling it out a national shame and filthy humor. It is fine that some people liked it and some people did not, but calling it a national shame is really hard to digest.
Our country has nothing to do with the increasing rape, and unemployment issue. But people have the time to discuss it on a TV show. How great it seems to be part of such an economy, where people are so narrow-minded. Actually people are not narrow-minded, they just want something to take out their grudge on and so they choose criticizing one or the other thing. I do not understand how people can discuss so much about a TV show. After all, it was just a show for entertainment. It is simple if you do not like it, do not watch it.
