‘Zola,’ the Stripper Tweetstorm Movie, Premieres to Warm Reception at Sundance

‘Zola,’ the Stripper Tweetstorm Movie, Premieres to Warm Reception at Sundance
Zola,” the A24 movie based on a viral Twitter thread, premiered to laughter and applause on Friday at the Sundance Film Festival. The film is based on a mostly true story tweeted in October 2015 by Aziah Wells King. King recounted, in highly entertaining fashion, her journey from Detroit to Tampa, Fla., with three near strangers, where she intended to make money stripping. But instead of a “harmless” sex-work weekend, the trip turned wild and dangerous.

Director Janicza Bravo — who wrote “Zola” with “Slave Play” playwright Jeremy O. Harris — said at the premiere that she became “immediately obsessed” with King’s story as the tweets unfolded. She said she asked her representation at the time about optioning a Twitter thread, but it had already been sold.

Bravo, Harris, the “Zola” cast — Paige, Riley Keough, Colman Domingo and Nicholas Braun — and King herself were cheered as they took the stage at the

Rani Mukerji: Without self-doubt, you can't move ahead in life

She has been around in Bollywood for over two decades and has been touted as one of India's finest actresses. Yet, Rani Mukerji admits harbouring doubts, because she believes if there is no self-doubt one cannot move ahead in life.

"It (self-doubt) is part of your being. If you don't have self-doubt you can't move ahead in life. You need to have some degree of insecurity or self-doubt, and you just can't be like you are the king of the world and do whatever comes your way," Rani told Ians.

Questioning yourself is important, stresses the actress.

"You have to have a little sense of questioning to basically try and achieve and keep achieving your goal. That can only happen when you doubt yourself a bit and push yourself harder towards your goal," she said.

Aamir Khan in ‘Dangal’: How a Major Bollywood Star Uses Cinema to Raise Awareness
Call Aamir Khan a perfectionist, and he’ll lightheartedly brush off the label, preferring to describe himself as simply “passionate” instead. Terminology aside, a mere glance at his 28-year career is ample proof that for Khan, going the extra mile is practically the equivalent of slacking off—the 51-year-old actor, producer, and director usually travels another 10 for good measure.

He did it in 1998’s “Ghulam,” when he turned down a body double or special effects in favor of sprinting towards an oncoming train for a stunt, avoiding it by a mere second and gambling his life for the sake of realism.

In 1999, when a script about 19th century villagers protesting British land tax with a game of cricket was dismissed by every financier in Bollywood, Khan took on his first producing role alongside his acting credit to make the film. Three years of grueling production later, “Lagaan” became the third

After shocking everyone with his epic body transformation from fat-to-fit, Mr. Perfectionist has now come up with his own rendition of Dhaakad song from his upcoming film.

Aamir Khan to rap for a special song in Dangal
Aamir Khan doesn't want to leave any stone unturned for his much ambitious venture Dangal which has been in the making for the past two years. The wrestling drama that unfolds by the end of this year will have the actor rapping to the beats. Though Aamir has previously sung for films like Ghulam, this is different we hear. The song is said to be a special addition in the film which is a biopic on real life wrestler Mahavir Phogat. In fact, it is also being said that the superstar has already started prepping for it and has been attending several sessions with music director Pritam and lyricist Amitabh Bhattacharya who have composed and written the song respectively. Knowing the kind of perfection that Aamir strives for, he has been holding several practice sessions before he records the song. Dangal also stars Sakshi Tanwar, Fatima Sana Sheikh, Sanya Malhotra

Salman Khans Sultan to face competition in Pakistan this Eid
Cricket and Films are two things that bring the populace of India and Pakistan together. Come this Eid, we will see the release of the Salman Khan - Anushka Sharma starrer Sultan not just in India but also in Pakistan. However, while the Indian release of the film will be a solo one, we hear that across the border Sultan will face competition from a local film titled, Sawaal 700 Crore Dollar Ka. In fact the said film features an ensemble cast comprising of big names across the border like, Ghulam Mohinuddin, Shamoon Abbasi, Javed Sheikh, Ismail Tara, Nayyar Ejaz, Ifttikar Thakur and more.

Review: Hansal Mehta’s “CityLights”

Review: Hansal Mehta’s “CityLights”
Bollywood’s famous Bhatt camp has made hugely successful remakes of Hollywood films (Ghulam, Murder and Raaz, to name a few) but have not always been generous in giving credit to the original source. However, they have made a clean break with past tradition in their latest offering CityLights. The fact that the film is a remake of the British thriller Metro Manila is mentioned right in the opening credits at least half a dozen times. And it’s a welcome irony that this fully credited desi copy of a much acclaimed original is one of the most authentic products from the Bhatt camp in a long time.

CityLights, produced by Mukesh Bhatt and directed by Hansal Mehta (Shahid), is a novel and refreshing take on crime in the maximum city that eschews many clichés in favor of a moving, original human drama.

Celebrating Rani Mukerji! A look at some of our favorite things!

Queen of Bollywood, Queen of Hearts, Dil Ki Rani are just some of the words synonymous with Rani Mukerji. She debuted back in 1996 with the film Raja Ki Aayegi Baarat, which tanked at the box office. People started writing her off even before she emerged. But then came the turning points of her career, in the form of Ghulam and Kuch Kuch Hota Hai in 1998, and she proved that she’s here to stay. While Ghulam gave her the title of ‘Khandala Girl’, while Kuch Kuch Hota Hai made people take notice of this amazing actor who had the ability and talent to stand her own ground in front of superstars like Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol. She went onto win lots of accolades for both her films and there was no turning back.
