Directed by John Guillermin, Robert Day

Jane Goodall fell for Tarzan at an early age – ‘he married the wrong Jane’ she said, half joking. A confirmed tree-hugger, the King of the Apes would seem to be a perfect match for the nature loving primatologist – even though the greater part of Tarzan’s big screen career played out in backlot jungles rather than the real thing.

Producer Sy Weintraub rectified that situation with Tarzan Goes to India and Tarzan’s Three Challenges – both sleekly made widescreen entertainments that put the jungle lord in his proper element. Made on location in India and Thailand, the films are a non-stop parade of cliffhanging serial thrills that revel in the raw beauty

Deleted scene from ‘Mahanati’ out, here’s what it reveals

EntertainmentThe deleted scene involves Gemini Ganesan’s daughter Rekha who was born out of his relationship with Pushpavalli. Digital NativeDigital NativeMahanati, the biopic on the legendary actor Savitri, released to both critical acclaim and commercial success. The film threw light on Savitri’s life as an actor and her relationship with her husband and actor Gemini Ganesan, a legend in his own right. While there have been various controversies about the film with Gemini’s daughter through his first wife Alamelu, Dr Kamala Selvaraj claiming that her father was shown in poor light, the makers have now released a deleted scene from the film which shows Rekha and her mother Pushpavalli meeting Savitri and her daughter Vijaya Chamundeswari at their residence during the Navratri pooja. It is well known that Gemini was in a relationship with Pushpavalli when he was married to both Alamelu and Savitri and had two children out of it. Rekha, a popular Bollywood actor, had revealed that she never enjoyed a good relationship with her father and Gemini Ganesan, on the other hand, never acknowledged her as his daughter. In an interview with Simi Garewal, Rekha, when asked about her father, had said, “If you don’t taste something, you don’t know what it means. I didn’t know what the word “father” meant.” When Khalid Mohammed interviewed her in 2015, her perspective about her father seemed to have changed slightly as she said, “I adored my father but there was a distance which could never be covered. My father (Gemini Ganesan) wrote poetry fluidly, he was a man of literature. As an actor, he was a heartthrob for decades.” Rekha is an established actor in Bollywood with a number of hit movies to her credit. She made her acting debut in the Telugu film industry as a child artiste and went on to become a star in the Indian film industry. A talented actor, she has won numerous awards in her career.
