Richa Chadha: Covid-19 trauma can only ever be forgotten superficially | Bollywood

Published

on

Richa Chadha is revisiting all her memories from the second wave of the Covid-19 crisis for her next project, admitting that the trauma of that time can never be suppressed or forgotten. The actor has begun shooting for her next, still-untitled film, in which she will be seen playing a frontline worker.

Chadha’s next film is based on the true inspired stories of the second wave of the Covid-19 crisis, and its impact in India. She will be seen in the role of a frontline worker in the untitled film, and has started shooting for it already.

“The film is based on those real incidents that we all witnessed during the second wave of Covid-19. While there was loss and despair, there was also hope. In fact, I was so moved by this kindness of strangers that I started Kindry, a small social media initiative that only amplified stories of goodness, selflessness through the second wave,” says Chadha, adding, “The film takes a hard look at all our lives during the pandemic, where we were afraid to be human, there was enforced and mandatory distance. It talks about the doctors and nurses who were doing their job selflessly”.

In fact, the actor feels the film offers something new to her. “I don’t think it’s a question of importance, anyone who is able to read the lines of this interview is also able to remember the horrid time we all experienced two years ago. It’s all too recent. And this kind of loss, grief and trauma can only ever be forgotten superficially,” says the actor.

For her, it was not a challenging part, but more of an emotional part. “I do think it was a very emotional part for me. I felt the pain of this loss on the behalf of my people and I re-lived it to pour my heart into this part,” she says, adding, “I haven’t seen the film but I think the filmmakers will strive to show the best of humanity which came through, which was the silver lining during those terrible days”.

Apart from the film, which is directed by Abhishek Acharya, she has also wrapped up the shoot of Girls will be Girls, the first movie of her co-owned home production.

Percy Jackson Has Found Its Poseidon—And It’s Not Logan Lerman

Published

on

There are officially a couple of Gods amongst these men. 

The Wire‘s Lance Reddick and Black SailsToby Stephens have joined the upcoming Disney+ series Percy Jackson and the Olympians as Zeus and Poseidon, respectively, according to Variety

Described as the “all-powerful god of the sky and leader of Mount Olympus” according to the outlet, Zeus is also characterized as “tempestuous and mistrustful. He’s promised to wage a war if his stolen thunderbolt is not returned.”

We’d probably suggest slipping that thunderbolt back under Zeus’ door.

Not only is Poseidon the god of the sea, he’s also Percy’s father. “Although seemingly absent in Percy’s life,” his descriptions reads, “many of Poseidon’s qualities live in Percy; stubbornness, impulsiveness and loyalty. Though he has stayed away throughout Percy’s life, his deep feelings for his son (and Percy’s mother, Sally) are evident.”

The Adam Project star Walker Scobell will play 12-year-old modern demigod Percy in the series, which also stars Leah Sava Jeffries and Aryan Simhadri as Percy’s friends Annabeth and Grover, respectively.

Britney Spears’s Fans Called The Police After She Deleted Her Instagram

Published

on

Britney Spears apparently didn’t appreciate fans calling the police to check on her this week, and a source familiar with the matter told BuzzFeed News that it’s fairly often that fans are calling for wellness checks.

“It is true that some fans reached out as a result of her taking a break from IG for a bit, which is not unusual and is done from time to time, and it was overzealous and the police confirmed there was no issue,” the source said.

TMZ reported Wednesday that the Ventura County sheriff’s office received calls Tuesday night about Spears deleting her Instagram account within the past 12 hours and that it was fans’ concerns that prompted officers to check on the singer.

On Thursday, Spears addressed the police visit in a Twitter post. She said these instances of the police being alerted were “some prank phone calls” and that officers realized they were erroneous when they visited her and saw she was not in any danger. Spears noted the police did not enter her home and left immediately.

“I love and adore my fans but this time things went a little too far and my privacy was invaded,” Spears wrote on Twitter. 

“This felt like I was being gaslit and bullied once the incident made it to the news and being portrayed once again in a poor and unfair light by the media,” she added.

Kourtney Kardashian’s Naked Dress Is Her Most Unconventional Look Yet

Published

on

As Kourtney Kardashian once said: “I am the view.”

On Jan. 26, the Kardashians star had fans doing a double take when she shared photos of herself in a very unconventional gown. Designed by Balmain, the Renaissance-inspired ‘fit featured a nude figure on the front, which made it seem like Kourtney was fully naked upon first glance.

In pictures posted to Instagram, Kourtney—who wore her signature dark locks in an up-do with two strands of hair framing her face—struck several sultry poses while clad in the dress. The Poosh founder also included a video of a phone left off the hook, writing in the caption, “If you’d like to make a call please hang up and try again.”

While friend Jonathan Cheban seemingly approved of the look, writing “Can I call collect?” in the comments section, others weren’t totally feeling the optical illusion.

“Trying to figure out why her belly button is misplaced,” one follower commented, adding that they later realized “it’s her dress.”
