‘Chadhta sooraj’ close to my heart: Mujtaba Aziz Naza

“Chadhta sooraj” is a remake of the famous Qawaali by the same name.

“This song is very close to my heart as the original one has been sung by my father. I have seen people being extremely moved when I have performed this song in the past, I’m hoping it will be well received in the movie as well,” Mujtaba said in a statement.

“It was a great experience working with Anu Malik (composer) and Madhur Bhandarkar (director). We had to ensure that while remaking the song for the new generation, we retained the essence and the spirit of the original qawwali,” he added.

“Indu Sarkar”, scheduled to release on July 28, features actors Kirti Kulhari, Tota Roy Chowdhury, Neil Nitin Mukesh and Anupam Kher in pivotal roles.

She added: “In fact, I was so overwhelmed to see that he tweeted about the film and that just made my day. He’s called the film different and bold. Exactly what we stand for, and I hope it gets the same reception in our motherland.”

“Lipstick Under My Burkha” will release on July 21.

Malayalam actor fraternity united on actress kidnap case

Kochi–The Association of Malayalam Movie Artists (AMMA) on Thursday expressed their ire at the media over the actress kidnap case and said that the artists are united on the issue.

The anger at the media came when probing questions were put to the AMMA executive committee members, who included association President and Lok Sabha member Innocent and superstars Mammootty, Mohanlal, Dileep and Kerala assembly members Mukesh and K.B. Ganesh Kumar.

Kumar lost his cool when questions came thick and fast over why the AMMA annual general body meeting did not take up the actress’s kidnap case, when she is a member as is Dileep, who was questioned by the police for over 13 hours till 1 a.m. on Thursday.

“It was me who had told the meeting that if anyone wishes to raise this issue, it can be raised and discussed. But none had any doubts as they know that AMMA is fair. Both of ‘them’ (the victim and Dileep) are our own children. We are united and none can break our unity and our organisation,” said Kumar.

Another member who lost his cool was Mukesh who was asked if the women artists’ new organisation, which too like AMMA was silent on the case, did not have any doubts.
