Priyanka Chopra is one actress who has had such a huge impact on the global scale. She has certainly put India on the map when it comes to a lot of things. While we are proud of her for all that she’s doing, all of us did miss seeing her in Bollywood films. PC was always in a league of her own and is one of the best actresses we have had.

But there is great news for all the ones who missed seeing her in the Hindi medium. What if we told you that she is all set to star in a Hindi film with none other than our current fav, Rajkummar Rao?! Yes. According to a report in IANS, PC and Rajkummar are all set to star in Netflix‘s upcoming film, The White Tiger. It will be directed by Ramin Bahrani. The film will also feature debutante Adarsh Gourav. The film is based on author Aravind Adiga‘s booker-prize winning novel of the same name. The story is about the journey of a humble tea-shop owner in a village who finds success as an entrepreneur in the big city.

Talking to IANS, Priyanka said:

“I’m so excited to work with Ramin Bahrani and Netflix to bring Aravind Adiga’s poignant story to cinematic life. When I read the book, I was fascinated with the perspective of the narrative. The story’s portrayal of raw ambition and the extent one will go to to achieve one’s goals is riveting. I look forward to filming this in India this fall, and also working along with Rajkummar for the first time and the wonderful cast Ramin is putting together.”

Adding to this, Rajkummar shared:

“It’s an exciting time for actors today and I’m thrilled to be a part of such a world-class project. I’ve been an admirer of Ramin’s work and am excited to see The White Tiger come to life.”

Speaking about the film, the director – Mr Bahrani – says that he wanted to make this film for the past decade and is excited to see it come to life now. Apart from acting in the film, Priyanka will also don the hat of the executive producer on the film.

Hailee Steinfeld Shines In The Trailer For ‘Dickinson’

Published

Apple TV+ just dropped a new trailer for ‘Dickinson’ and it’s truly gorgeous. This is their new half-hour period drama centred around the great poet Emily Dickinson. The trailer cuts to beautiful scenic shots with enchanting background music and stunning visuals. Hailee Steinfeld portrays Emily Dickinson with a streak of rebellion. It features young poet Emily Dickinson wanting to write in a world that forbids her to. The trailer also references her famous poem, “Because I Could Not Stop For Death” where we have none other than Wiz Khalifa making an appearance as ‘Death’ itself.

The series has been created, written and executive produced by Alena Smith and executive produced by Hailee Steinfeld. “Dickinson”, the drama stars Hailee Steinfeld, Jane Krakowski, Toby Huss, Anna Baryshnikov, Ella Hunt, and Adrian Blake Enscoe with Wiz Khalifa as a guest star. Watch the breath-taking trailer below!

As one can clearly see from the trailer, an attempt is made to blend the old and the new. With Emily Dickinson’s values and struggles intact, the drama seems to loosen up the vocabulary and course of interactions between the characters. There is also strong undertones of teen angst and quirky humour that has sure piqued the interest of viewers.

 

AppleTV also shared their trailer on their Instagram account. Whilst this Apple TV series has been pitched as a comedy, one can clearly see that the show has in no way undermined the struggle of women and their lack of freedom to pursue their interests. The trailer stands as a reminder that those times weren’t easy and a woman was barely her own person. Emily Dickinson played by Hailee Steinfeld is set to portray all that and more in this new series. The story seems intriguing and the thrust of modernity in tone will interest even those not familiar with the iconic poet.

Here’s How Hasan Minhaj Called Out Justin Trudeau’s Hypocrisy

Published

By

Hasan Minhaj is not known for his silence. This is the guy who spoke out against Saudi Arabia’s blatant human rights violation on his Netflix show. So when the Canadian government’s terrible actions regarding climate change came to light, fans knew this episode was coming. In the episode titled “The Two Sides of Canada,” we get to see the handsome and charming face of Canada, Justin Trudeau, in contrast with the reality of their actions.

Patriot Act/Netflix

Hasan Rips Into Trudeau With His Trademark Wit

At a time when so many reporters and journalists refuse to question authority, Minhaj comes as a breath of fresh air.
In this episode, he confronted the Canadian PM with all the burning questions.
Quebec’s Secularism Bill was brought up – it is exactly the opposite as it sounds.  And yes, so was marginalization of indigenous communities. Obviously, Hasan left no stone unturned.
The PM was left with no choice but to answer. Unfortunately, his efforts to deflect the questions, or use diplomacy are difficult to ignore.

Patriot Act/Netflix

Middle Aged Men, or World Leaders?

In a funny part of the episode that flips between an interview and the set, we see them playing a game.
Hasan shows Trudeau some photos of men and asks him to guess whether they are random middle-aged men or actual world leaders. And, guess what? The Canadian PM did well, but got Equador’s leader wrong!

Trudeau: The “White Panther” of Canada

Patriot Act/Netflix

But why are we so surprised that Canada is doing such troubling things?
The truth is, popular media has painted Canada to be this futuristic place where everyone is treated equally, where democracy and free healthcare exist in full swing, and people drink maple syrup and have Tim Hortons in total bliss.
So when these terrible deals that are causing wars and destruction come up in Canada’s name – people were bound to get unsettled. To drive home the point, Hasan compares Trudeau to the fictional country of Wakanda! Trudeau smiles awkwardly and tries to accept the “compliment”.
