Recently there was a news that Actor Akshay Kumar is putting up the naval uniform, which he donned in the film Rustom, for auction. But, unfortunately, this created a stir of controversy as Major General GD Bakshi has said that it’s a crime to sell uniform. In a conversation with CNN News 18, GD Bakshi said it’s a crime to sell your medals or uniforms, “Fact is a uniform is a uniform and frankly if you go through defense service regulations, it’s a crime to pawn or sell your medals and uniform. Uniform which Akshay was imitating in Rustom was as authentic as any other uniform stitched. You gave it so he can portray the role of an officer and you’re bound by the same sentiments and rules.” Akshay Kumar Rustom Uniform Controversy: “It’s A Crime To Sell Uniform,” Says GD Bakshi It was said that the proceedings from the bid will support the cause of animal welfare.

After releasing the super amazing teaser and poster of Sanjay dutt biopic, the makers of Sanju have released a new poster from the movie. Yesterday, director Rajkumar Hirani took to his Twitter account and posted that every day we will get to see a new poster/still from this Ranbir Kapoor starrer! Hirani shared the new poster with a caption, “Ranbir as #Sanju! When he came out of Jail in 2016. Watch his complete story on June 29. #RanbirKapoor #RajkumarHiraniFilms @VVCFilms @foxstarhindi.” Sanju Poster: Is He Ranbir Kapoor? Is He Sanjay Dutt? No, He’s A Magician! In this new poster, we can see Ranbir Kapoor as Sanju is slaying and how! This look of Sanjay Dutt is from the year 2016 when he came out of the jail. The poster itself is doing the talk! Ranbir or Sanjay? It’s hard to recognise! Isn’t it? Earlier, talking about the Sanjay Dutt biopic, Hirani had said, “I think biopic is a totally different monster altogether because you don’t have a total control over it. When you write a fresh script, a regular story, you have control over it. It is your story… you can turn the flow of your characters in whichever way you want. That’s not the case with a biopic.” Trending Avengers: Infinity War Box Office Early Trends Day 3: They’re Here To Conquer!

So during the making of the film, the journey was more of how to string those stories into one.” Hirani said the audience can expect to know some hidden facets of the life of Sanjay, whose tryst with drugs and time in jail has been widely spoken about. “As a filmmaker, I took chapters that interested me, but I am always interested in human stories. So I wrote the story of father-son, friendship… These are the stories that people do not know because the rest is all out there,” added the filmmaker. Sanju, which releases on June 29, features Ranbir Kapoor portraying different avatars of Sanjay from his newcomer days.
