Actress Taapsee Pannu says there is definitely more breathing space “Screen wise” with Saaho deterring its release and only Mission Mangal and Batla House releasing on his 15th August 2019.
This Independence Day, three massive films – Saaho, Mission Mangal and Batla House- would have clash at the box-office with stellar cast. But the makers of Prabhas and Shraddha Kapoor starrer deterred its release date, leaving more space for Mission Mangal and Batla House.
When asked about only two films releasing as compare to three on 15th August, Taapsee said, “Screen wise, practically, yes it is a relief. It just helps the other two films probably gets more screens and what it would have, if there was another film. See during festive season, especially during the extended weekend, so the families are more than happy to go out twice to watch a film, if they find it good….so yes there is more breathing space with one big movie shifting its release date”
Bollywood is once again divided on Open Letter Controversy, where around 49 celebrities including filmmaker Anurag Kashyap, Mani Ratnam, Aparna Sen, Adoor Gopalakrishnan, and Konkona Sen Sharma, wrote an open letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, expressing concern over the growing cases of lynching in India.
Though some sixty-two celebrities including actress Kangana Ranaut and writer-lyricist Prasoon Joshi, came out with a counter open letter slamming the earlier one.
Expressing her views on the ongoing open letter debate, Taapsee said: “No one asked for my sign, I am not on the left, neither on the right, I am in the center. And whatever thoughts I have, I express them. And I keep thoughts about subject or things, which affects me. Whenever such incident took place and it came to my notice, I have spoken about it”
“If I have noticed something good about my country, I have spoken very proudly about it. So I think one should look at both the ends of the issue…Good and bad, both kinds of people exist in society. Some are tolerant and some aren’t, and I have not sat down and counted them, who is in the majority, I have seen both kind of people, I will say only that much” added Taapsee.
