Actor Kangana Ranaut is back at her home in Manali to celebrate Diwali with her family. She is enjoying a great time in the hills and the pictures speak to that effect.

Kangana’s official Instagram handle shared pictures of her and her family on Tuesday. She is seen rolling up snowballs with her sister Rangoli Chandel and brother Akshit Ranaut and carrying her little nephew Prithvi on her shoulders in the pics. She is wearing a thick pink jacket and flashing a big smile as she enjoys playing in the snow.

Kangana decided to spend Diwali in Manali this year specially for her little nephew and for her brother who is introducing the family to his girlfriend. “My entire family will come together this Diwali. My brother is introducing us to his girlfriend and making the relationship official, so we wanted to be together on this special day. It’s also my nephew Prithvi Raj’s first Diwali. Since he’s just a baby we will avoid noisy crackers,” she told Mumbai Mirror.

Since it is snowing in Manali, Kangana is carrying her favourite vintage wine. “My grand piano, a song and wine is my idea of a party so in a sense I will be partying this Diwali,” she added.

Once she returns from the three-day trip, she will resume the post production work for Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi. Following this, Kangana will start working on the movie Panga from November 9 in Bhopal. It’s a 25- day schedule and she will be seen as a Kabaddi player in the movie.

Kangana said Manikarnika has been a tough journey for her. “Rani Laxmibai had to fight so much. I would not wish that life for anyone I love. Also, I won’t want my children to have the kind of life I have had. I don’t know why but I have to fight for everything in my life,” she had said. “I don’t get anything without fighting for it. I am neither proud, nor ashamed, I’m pretty fine with how my life is. But if you ask me if I want this for my children or my loved ones, then no,” she added. The actor was speaking at the wrap party of the biopic, directed by Krish.

Tamil superstar Vijay starrer Sarkar hit screens on Tuesday. The film has generated immense buzz and thanks to its festive release, it is expected to rake in huge numbers. It released in over 3000 screens around the world and is expected to break records right from its opening day. Directed by AR Murugadoss, the movie also stars Keerthy Suresh, Varalaxmi Sarathkumar, Yogi Babu and Radha Ravi among others.

While Sarkar is easily the biggest release down south, in other parts of the country, too, it is expected to make a good amount of money. Trade analyst Taran Adarsh wrote on Twitter, “The hugely awaited #Tamil biggie #Sarkar, which opened today, has got fantastic showcasing outside Tamil Nadu as well… In Mumbai, for instance, the plexes have allotted 8, 9, even 11 and 12 shows every day, which is a rarity… The hype is truly tremendous… #SarkarDiwali.”

Sarkar had to overcome a pre-release hurdle. It got mired in controversy after Varun Rajendran accused director AR Murugadoss of plagiarising his script. Rajendran claimed that Murugadoss had copied the script of Sengol. An out-of-court agreement was reached before the matter was heard in court. As part of the deal, Varun was promised that a letter of appreciation, for imagining a Sarkar-like script about 11 years ago, will be shown at the beginning of the film.

Delhi Sikh Gurudwara Management Committee general secretary Manjinder Singh Sirsa had filed a complaint against Zero actor Shah Rukh Khan and director Aanand L Rai on Monday for hurting Sikh sentiments. The complaint stated that one of the film’s poster shows SRK wearing a Gatra Kirpan as an ordinary dagger. Now, the makers of Zero have issued a statement to clarify that the film or the makers have no intention to hurt any religious sentiments. In the statement, the makers have made it clear that Shah Rukh is not wearing a Kirpan but a dagger popularly known as Katar in the Indian subcontinent.

The statement from the spokesperson of the film read, “The concern is duly noted and we wish to respectfully clarify that the film does not depict a Kirpan but in fact has used what is commonly known as a Katar. The filmmakers have been careful not to hurt the feelings of any community including the Sikh community.”

“The film is about celebrating incompleteness and to tell a heartfelt story. We trust you will appreciate our stand that any concern this may have caused is completely inadvertent,” the statement continued to read.


Earlier, in the complaint filed by Manjinder Singh Sirsa, the MLA had requested Zero director Aanand L Rai to remove the objectionable scenes, failing which the Sikh community will stage protests at theaters to stop the film’s screening.
