Kanchana Muni remake Akshay Kumars character tweaked Kiara Advanis role gets meatier

first_imgAkshay Kumar, Kiara AdvaniInstagramOver the past few years, Akshay Kumar has stepped outside his comfort zone to experiment with roles that he had never done before. And the outcome of it has been overwhelming as the Khiladi Kumar delivered back-to-back hits at the box office and has become one of the most bankable stars in the industry. After playing the role of Pakshi Rajan in 2.0 and commander Ishar Singh in Kesari, Akshay Kumar will now be stepping into the shoes of a man (originally played by Raghava Lawrence) who gets possessed by ghosts in the Hindi remake of superhit Tamil horror-comedy Kanchana. But there’s a catch.Akshay’s character won’t be scared of the spirits in the Hindi remake of Kanchana, as it was shown in the Tamil film. Additionally, he will be possessed by only one ghost – a transgender named Lakshmi – and not by three. Kiara Advani has been paired opposite Akshay and will be playing the role of his onscreen wife. Unlike the original Tamil film, Kiara’s role will be meatier and prove to be crucial in the exorcism sequence.”While the premise remains the same, Akshay’s character has been chalked out as one who doesn’t fear the supernatural. The makers also reworked the narrative to create a meaty role for Kiara Advani, who plays Akshay’s wife. In the original film, the hero’s mother and sister-in-law have pivotal parts. In the Hindi counterpart, the sequence where Akshay’s character is possessed by a ghost – the turning point in the story – will take place at Kiara’s house. Her character will play a crucial role in his exorcism. Finally, Akshay will be possessed by one ghost – that of the transgender, Lakshmi – and not three ghosts as seen in the Tamil movie,” a source was quoted as saying by Mid-Day.The Hindi remake of Kanchana will be directed by Raghava Lawrence, who had directed the Tamil version as well in 2011. Kiara and Akshay, who are currently shooting for Good News, will soon start shooting for the film.last_img read more

Bangladeshi teen challenges NY senator

first_imgTahseen ChowdhuryTahseen Chowdhury, a 17-year-old Bangladeshi American student, is running for the New York state Senate against an incumbent.The American Bazaar reports that the student of Stuyvesant High School announced his candidacy for the Empire State’s Senate District 13 in Democratic Party’s primary in September.Current senator in the constituency is Jose Peralta who was facing allegations of fraud, according to the report.Tahseen Chowdhury is said to have worked as a student leader and community organiser, who first announced his candidacy last May.“We cannot keep accepting watered-down versions of progressive legislation from the Independent Democratic Conference,” Chowdhury reportedly said while announcing his candidacy.“New York should be at the forefront of the progressive movement, not enabling Trump Republicans to get their way,” he was quoted to have insisted.According to the report, he was outraged by Peralta’s decision to join the Independent Democratic Conference last year.Chowdhury’s tenure as an advisor on the New York City Department of Education’s panel for educational policy has shaped his political outlook, said the report.As part of his campaign, Tahseen Chowdhury proposed a bill to strengthen the role of students on the panel, the report added.Being a Muslim, he stands by the community, which, the report said, is facing the adverse effects of Islamophobia especially after the terrorist attack during Halloween last year.“As a Muslim candidate, I will continue to stand by the Muslim community, as it is one that stands by progressive American beliefs,” he was quoted by The New Yorker as saying.The report said while some people raised concerns about his age, Chowdhury thinks it is an advantage compared to other politicians since he doesn’t have any agenda and he is too young to be compromised.last_img read more

Texas Child Welfare Agency Adding 400Plus New Staff Members

first_imgTexas Department of Family & Protective ServicesThe head of Texas’ troubled foster care system says emergency state funding helped hire 441 new employees in December and January, a two-thirds increase over the same period the previous year.Department of Family and Protective Services Commissioner Hank Whitman told a state House committee on Monday that an additional around 250 staff should be hired soon. The Legislature approved nearly $150 million for about 830 extra employees.More than 100 children died in Texas child protective services last year alone, when a federal judge had already ruled that the system violated youngsters’ constitutional rights.A major House bill would make it easier for at-risk children to be adopted by relatives.
