Fukrey 3 will star Pulkit Samrat, Varun Sharma, Ali Fazal, Manjot Singh, Pankaj Tripathi and Richa Chadda. 

Filmmaker Mrigdeep Singh Lamba says he is toying with the idea of touching upon the COVID-19 situation in the third part of his hit franchise film Fukrey.

Lamba said like the previous two installments, Fukrey (2013) and Fukrey Returns (2017), the third one too will be high on entertainment and raise a social message.

Farhan Akhtar and Riteish Sidhwani’s Excel Entertainment are the producers of the franchise.

The director said the team is contemplating to talk about the current situation of the pandemic and lockdown in Fukrey 3.

This part too will have a strong message that people will take away and it will be delivered in a humorous way. The original story doesn’t mention it (about COVID-19).

“But we have been contemplating. We have discussed it. We need to be careful how we show it (COVID-1 situation) it shouldn’t seem forceful,” Lamba told PTI.

He further said if the team is unable to crack an idea revolving around the coronavirus situation for Fukrey 3, he plans to make a full-fledged film on it.

“We are toying with the idea to do (something) on COVID-19 or the current situation in a humorous way. We will definitely do something about it. We will make something. We need to crack the right idea,” he added.

He said all his energies are focused on Fukrey 3.

“We had started working on it before lockdown and now we connect via phone. We have got a story in place and the writing is almost 80 per cent complete. We are working on the screenplay, which is almost done.

“Once things start to normalise and we have rules in place, then we will decide how and when to take it ahead. We will understand the ground reality before going on floors. The production was earlier slated to begin by October-November but nothing is certain now,” he said.

“The film’s primary cast, including Pulkit Samrat, Varun Sharma, Ali Fazal, Manjot Singh, Pankaj Tripathi and Richa Chadda, is returning,” he said, adding that there would be new additions as well.

Asked about reports that Rajkummar Rao and Jahnvi Kapoor’s Roohi Afzana — which he is producing with Dinesh Vijan, will release on OTT, Lamba said the film is yet to be completed. The movie was earlier set to release on June 5.

“We are trying to finish the film. It is in post-production. We were done with the edit before lockdown but we need to do post-production. It is not happening as offices are shut. Dinesh is the best person to talk about it. It’s his call. I trust his judgment on how the market works,” he said.

Tahira Kashyap has impressed the audience with her direction skills in her short film Toffee and the Neena Gupta starrer Pinni

Tahira Kashyap has impressed the audience with her direction skills in her short film Toffee and the Neena Gupta starrer Pinni. While there has been news that Tahira might be working on a feature film soon, she has revealed it wouldn’t be with husband Ayushmann Khurrana. She feels that the actor has way more experience and she has to earn the right to work with him.

Recently, Tahira spoke to TOI about the possibility of directing a feature film. “I am taking baby steps. I am slowly and gradually moving towards that direction. My films, ‘Toffee’ and ‘Pinni’ received a lot of love. I have written a couple of feature films. The intention is to make a feature film. Because of this lockdown, now there is a pause button on everybody’s lives. I don’t know what the future holds but the dreams and aspirations are certainly there.”

However, Tahira is not sure if she is ready to work with her husband Ayushmann Khurrana quite yet.

She stated, “I would really love to work with him from the perspective of directing a wonderful artist. He has grown tremendously as an artist. But at the same time, he is senior to me when it comes to working. So I need to earn myself a couple of films or a position where I deserve to direct him.”

Ayushmann Khurrana will next be seen in Gulabo Sitabo with Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan. The film has been directed by Shoojit Sircar. It will stream on Amazon Prime Video from June 12.

From posting on social media to taking part in the protests, celebrities are actively protesting the horrific death of Geroge Floyd.  Riverdale actor Cole Sprouse is one such celebrity. He took part in a protest on May 31st in Santa Monica California. The actor has now revealed that he was arrested and zip-tied for protesting peacefully.

Cole Sprouse shared the series of events that led to him being arrested on Instagram.

He wrote, “A group of peaceful protesters, myself included, were arrested yesterday in Santa Monica. So before the voracious horde of media sensationalism decides to somehow turn it about me, there’s a clear need to speak about the circumstances: Black Lives Matter. Peace, riots, looting, are an absolutely legitimate form of protest. the media is by nature only going to show the most sensational, which only proves a long standing racist agenda. I was detained when standing in solidarity, as were many of the final vanguard within Santa Monica. We were given the option to leave, and were informed that if we did not retreat, we would be arrested. When many did turn to leave, we found another line of police officers blocking our route, at which point, they started zip tying us.”

However, the actor refused to speak more about the subject. he wrote, “I’m (1) not well versed enough to do so, (2) not the subject of the movement, and (3) uninterested in drawing attention away from the leaders of the #BLM movement.”
