Hrthik Roshan- a perfectionist?

The actor who carries two thumbs on his right hand, surprised the nation with his mind blowing acting skills, arch angelic looks,well sculptured body and exceptionally good dancing ability, instantly rising to unimaginable heights of fame and stardom with his 2000 blockbuster debut, ‘Kaho Na Pyar Hai’ opposite Amisha Patel. Hrtihik Roshan is known as a perfectionist and a control freak.Like most of his Bollywood counterparts he has had his share of controversies. His alleged affair with his Kites’ co-star Barbara Mori resulting in an emotional turmoil in his marital life, made it to the headlines as soon as the cat was out of the bag. He was seen having generous amounts of alcohol at functions and parties as well.

Hrithik was confronted with the misfortune of the attempt of assassination of his father Rakesh Roshan at the beginning of his career which had a devastating effect on him and even made him contemplate of a very early retirement from films. He was in for more trouble when a handful of Nepalese students claimed that the superstar had passed derogatory comments against Nepal and its citizens culminating into a riot.The Bollywood heartthrob has also had the honour of being the youngest male actor to unveil his own wax figure at the prestigious Madame Tussuad’s Museum in London. He has been in the news of late for his proclaimed support towards the concept of euthanasia, better known as mercy killing. This is perhaps because of his latest movie Guzaarish in which he impersonated the challenging role of a paraplegic who fights in the court asking for euthanasia.Five of his must watch movies would beyond doubt include Koi Mil Gaya, Jodha Akbar, Krissh, Kaho Na Pyaar Hay and Dhoom 2.

Be it action, drama, romance, comedy or sci-fi, people have seen him grow as an actor and he has won many accolades for his unnerving performances in the various genres he has played. These films strike a chord and are unforgettable not because they provide entertainment but because they are well made and there is something meaningful about them. All his movies can be distinguished by the passion with which he acts to create an everlasting impression.

The production company also claims they were not necessarily looking for people with loads of acting and singing experience.Speaking to The Evening Times, Director Steven Paling said: ” We are looking for young, exciting, new talent and people with bags of personality.”Among those waiting to audition was 21 year old Adam Lacey. Also speaking to The Evening Times, the unemployed, performing arts graduate was excited about being offered such a fantastic opportunity.He said: “It is not very often you get to go to an open audition for an international show.”Those who were successful in the first round of auditions will be asked to attend another casting day in London where they will have to perform alongside other industry professionals.

Ben Affleck Returns as Actor Director and Writer

Let’s be completely honest, here. Ben Affleck hasn’t always made the best choices when it comes to his film projects. He’s a multiple nominee of the Golden Raspberry awards, a sort of anti-Oscar, given to actors and films deemed ‘the worst.’ In 2003, he won the award for Worst Actor for three of his movies: Daredevil, Paycheck, and the infamous Gigli. However, Affleck is also the same actor that has starred in Chasing Amy and Hollywoodland. The man can act, and he’s proven it. It just seems that sometimes what he’s acting in isn’t up to snuff.On the other hand, Affleck is often referred to as an Academy Award Winner, which is true except he hasn’t won an Oscar for acting. Affleck and Matt Damon share an Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay for Good Will Hunting.

Given that Ben has also written the script for The Town (in addition to Gone Baby Gone), it’s a mystery why the marketing isn’t banking on this fact either, instead telling us that this movie is from “the studio that brought you The Departed,” which seems to be included only because it’s another film about crime in Boston.The Town is the first time that Affleck is directing himself in a movie, and he’s picked an ambitious project to do so. Not only is the film filled with other acclaimed actors such as Jon Hamm and Jeremy Renner, it’s also full of action, a notoriously tricky aspect of film making. Reviews indicate that he’s done an admirable job, making this not only one of his best reviewed films ever, but also putting The Town on equal ground with his directorial debut.

Will the movie-going public forgive Ben Affleck for his past mistakes? It may be a tough sell as this is his first leading role since 2004’s Jersey Girl. Affleck has had many supporting roles in recent years, most notably in Hollywoodland which netted him a Golden Globe nod for Best Supporting Actor. However, with what looks to be strong performances and direction as well as a solid base of critical acclaim, The Town may well cement Affleck’s position as a leading actor/director on par with Clint Eastwood.

Diversity, Netflix Dominate Golden Globes As ‘Nomadland’ Wins Best Drama Movie

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) – Drama “Nomadland” and satire “Borat Subsequent Moviefilm” won movie honors at the Golden Globes on Sunday in a mostly virtual bicoastal ceremony that was marked by impassioned calls for more diversity and the dominance of Netflix.

“Nomadland,” a moving drama about van dwellers in recession-hit America from Searchlight Pictures, also took the best director prize for Chinese-born Chloe Zhao. It made Zhao only the second woman to win at the Globes in that category, and the first woman director of Asian descent to win.

“For everyone who has gone through this difficult and beautiful journey at some point in their lives, this is for you,” said Zhao.

“We don’t say goodbye, we say see you down the road,” she said, quoting a line from the movie.

The two wins for “Nomadland” increased the profile of the film ahead of nominations in March for the Oscars.

Sacha Baron Cohen, the creator of “Borat Subsequent Moviefilm” from Amazon Studios was named best comedy movie actor, while singer Andra Day was a surprise winner for her lead role in “The United States vs. Billie Holiday.”

“Donald Trump is contesting the result!” Baron Cohen joked about the win for the “Borat” sequel, which was a satire on the America of the former U.S. President.

Netflix Inc’s period drama “Mank,” about “Citizen Kane” screenwriter Herman Mankiewicz, had gone into Sunday’s show with a leading six nods but ended the night empty-handed.

Nevertheless, the streaming service was the biggest winner on Sunday, with four wins in the movie field and six for television, including best TV drama series “The Crown” and limited series chess saga “The Queen’s Gambit.”

The usual chummy gathering of A-listers at a gala dinner in Beverly Hills, California, was replaced by webcams in the homes of celebrities that were either dressed up or, like “Ted Lasso” star Jason Sudeikis, in casual garb.

Hosted by Tina Fey in New York and Amy Poehler in Beverly Hills, the small physical audiences were made up of masked frontline workers.

Peter Morgan, creator of “The Crown” said he missed being together. “I’m just sorry I am sitting here in my tragic little office and not surrounded by the people who make this show such a pleasure,” Morgan said, appearing by video.

However Jodie Foster, a best supporting actress winner for the Guantanamo prison legal drama “The Mauritanian,” told reporters backstage that she felt it was one of the best Golden Globe shows ever.

“It didn’t feel like it was filled with so much artifice,” said Foster.

Emotional high points included a posthumous best actor award for Chadwick Boseman, who died at age 43 last August from an undisclosed battle with cancer.

“He would say something beautiful,” said his widow Simone Ledward Boseman, as she fought back tears. “I don’t have his words.”

British actors Daniel Kaluuya and John Boyega were among other Black winners chosen by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA), which has been lambasted in recent days for having no Black people among its 87 members.

“Soul,” the first Pixar movie to have a Black character in the lead, was named best animated movie and won best score.

The HFPA was the target of jokes and comments throughout the night. “We all know awards shows are stupid,” said Fey. “Even in stupid things, inclusivity is important and there are no Black members of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.”

Members of the HFPA appeared briefly on Sunday’s show and pledged to do better.

Jane Fonda, 83, used her lifetime achievement acceptance speech to make the case for elevating all voices in Hollywood, saying that stories “really can change people.”
