Qayamat Ki Raat promo: Karishma Tanna and Vivek Dahiya awaken the sleeping evil in this creepy tale – watch video!

On the day of the IPL 2018 finale, Ekta Kapoor decided to unveil the promo of Qayamat Ki Raat that will soon air on Star Plus. We have been hearing about the supernatural show for a while now. It stars Karishma Tanna and Vivek Dahiya in lead roles. Actress Dipika Kakar is also supposed to be in it. Well, the promo starts off on a tried and tested note.  A couple are warned against entering a cave but then who listens to well-meaning advice in horror stories. Actor Nirbhay Wadhwa makes quite an impact as the evil Tantric. This will be Vivek’s second supernatural show after Kavach.

Karishma Tanna is back in the Balaji camp after many years. She is also a part of Naagin 3. For her, Balaji Telefilms is like home. We must say Vivek and she make for one helluva good-looking couple. Talking about her role in Naagin, she told us, “My character is called Ruhi. She has a lot of shades to her. She is a shape-shifting Naagin who gets born in the human form after 1000 years along with her lover. It is a milan ki raat when a few boys come and ruin our romantic moment. Rajat and I are harassed and he gets killed. How I come and take badla is the plot of the show. The character has sexiness, oomph, larger-than-life quality and sympathy, which draws the audience.”

The coming week will be all abut Veere Di Wedding, as the multi-starrer buddy comedy is set to hit the screens on June 1. With the release date of the film so close, the Veeres – Kareena Kapoor Khan, Sonam Kapoor, Swara Bhasker and Shikha Talsania are going all out with the promotions of the film. Not far behind in keeping the buzz alive are co-producers Rhea Kapoor and Ekta Kapoor. These women are making headlines day in and day out, and just today, a post on our Twitter timeline caught our attention.

Ekta Kapoor tweeted a picture of herself with nephew Laksshya Kapoor and it was all sorts of adorable, with both of them sporting the Veere T-shirt that had #IAmNotaChickFlick written on it. It’s was rather cute to see Ekta and Laksshya twinning, but it was the caption on the picture that stood out. “Teach them young watch them grow !!! #ImNotaChickFlick #VeereDiWedding #LashyasBday1stJune #VDWonJune1” [sic] the caption read. You see, there is a very basic, yet very important message that Ekta has conveyed here about teaching our kids the right values right from a young age.

But wait! This caption also established a connection between Laksshya and the film Veere Di Wedding! Turns out June 1 is also Laksshya’s birthday! Well, we don’t know if that was a conscious decision, or a happy coincidence. But we hope, the date proves to be lucky for the film.

Interestingly, the film will clash at the box office with Sonam’s brother Harshvardhan Kapoor’s second film, Bhavesh Joshi Superhero.

“I have always aspired to make films that kind of change the mindsets of people and at the same time, entertain them.”

Sonam added: “Now, before the release of the film, I don’t think so much about it because I get stressed thinking about how it will do once it’s released.”

“But I think we have made this film with lot of efforts and its very entertaining film. I feel that this film will do well.”

Sonam said that in the movie, there are some cheeky dialogues spoken by female characters of the film which are not going well with certain section of people.

“When we sit with our close friends, we make use of such kind of language. We shouldn’t create issue out of that because I feel it’s a colloquial way of talking,” she said.

Veere Di Wedding‘ is female buddy comedy film, directed by Shashanka Ghosh. The film is co-produced by Rhea Kapoor, Ekta Kapoor and Nikhil Dwivedi. It stars Kareena Kapoor Khan, Sonam Kapoor, Swara Bhaskar and Shikha Talsania in lead roles.

Ekta Kapoor gives it back to the trolls who started #EndYHM demanding the end of Yeh Hai Mohabbatein

Star Plus’ show Yeh Hai Mohabbatein began in the year 2013 and has been winning hearts since then. The show started with a completely new concept, partially based on Manju Kapoor’s novel, Custody. While Raman (Karan Patel) was suffering from heartbreak and Pihu (Ruhanika Dhawan) needed a mother’s love, Ishita (Divyanka Tripathi) came into their life. This daily soap also won many accolades over the years for the family drama it brought. But after running for 5 long years, fans are feeling that the show has become monotonous. The repetitive tracks of the show have compelled fans to initiate a campaign on Twitter. With #EndYHM, people are sharing statuses demanding an end to the show. While others would just ignore it, Ekta knows how to shut the trolls. Taking it in her stride, she exactly knew how to give it back to them.

In one of such troll’s comment, Ekta replied, “For once I’ll say it my frns!Instead of hash tagging #endyhm stop watching it!!All stories will not go as u wish as an audience !! I love my tv audience I value ur opinion Bt our creatives work with ratings n tv norms! This is for show fan groups!Love n respect always” [sic] Well, as a maker her point is completely justified. As the TRP of a show is determined by the viewers watching it, Ekta asking the viewers to stop watching it is the right step the audience can take to put an end to it. If the show sees a drop in TRP then the channels will be compelled to pull the plugs on a show. And that is the only way, the motive will be successful. And Ekta’s words explain the exact logic a maker runs their show on. (Also Read: Ekta Kapoor to have a personal screening for Veere Di Wedding – read details)

 

Earlier, during the music launch of Veere Di Wedding, the stars were questioned about their opinion on high fuel price and how the government is failing to do it. Ekta being the co-producer of the film replied, “Even if petrol prices are at its highest, men will take women for drives & in today’s time, women will take men for drives. This isn’t the movie that you’re going to stop watching as at this time you need to spend less on driving & more in theatre.” [sic] This response also didn’t go down well with the Twitterati and they started trolling her. She in her brilliant way, gave it back to them and wrote, “I love it🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩!!! Wil b giving my trolls so much more !!! I have just come on Twitter ! This is d beginning 🤸‍♀️🤸‍♀️🤸‍♀️😆” [sic]

 

Ekta surely knows how to give it back in her own style. What do you think about it? Share your thoughts in the comments below. For more scoops and updates, stay tuned to BollywoodLife.

Kareena Kapoor Khan Thinks That Veere Di Wedding Will Change The Mindset Of People

Actress Kareena Kapoor Khan has said that her upcoming Veere Di Wedding, which she is promoting these days, is a progressive film.

While interacting with reporters to promote Veere Di Wedding on Thursday here, Kareena said, “People have appreciated the trailer because this film’s language is very different. It’s really a progressive film.”

“We have watched films like these from male perspective in ‘Dil Chahta Hai‘ and ‘Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara‘, but through this film, people will, for the first time, see a story through four female friend’s perspective.”

Kareena said she enjoyed the script at the very first time she read it.

“This film shows what happens in life of four childhood friends. It’s very interesting. When I first read the script, I enjoyed reading it. I felt excited and sure that people would like to see this kind of a film,” she said.

When asked whether makers of the film were trying follow the trend of female-oriented movies, Kareena said, “This film is not trying to bring any kind of trend but I think after watching this film, people will have a changed mindset. It will also change the thought process of directors so they can tell a story of friendship and love through a female perspective also.”

Talking about story line of the film, the Chameli actress said, “When we see four girls on screen, audience thinks that it is a chic flick and it will be about their clothes, shoes and bags but this film is not like that.

“I think that’s why producer decided not to position this film as a chic flick because it’s a story of four girls who are in different stages of marriage. We are showing certain issues in the film which we have not addressed earlier.”

When asked whether she could relate with her character in the movie, Kareena said, “My character, Kalindi, is commitment phobic but I am married and have a kid in real life, so I don’t think I can relate with her character in that way.”

Veere Di Wedding is female buddy comedy film, directed by Shashanka Ghosh. The film is co-produced by Rhea Kapoor, Ekta Kapoor and Nikhil Dwivedi. It stars Kareena Kapoor Khan, Sonam Kapoor, Swara Bhaskar and Shikha Talsania in lead roles.

It is releasing on June 1.
