Actor Sanjay Choudhary was in for a rather unanticipated instance when he was attacked by goons suddenly. The actor was attacked by a group of men who threatened him and extorted money from him. It happened in Mira Road on a Thursday afternoon where the actor even shared a video about the same and warned everyone to stay safe. According to Choudhary, hw was travelling from Mira Road to Naigaon, where the set of his show is located around 2:30 pm.

Talking about it with Bombay Times, he said, “I was on the road towards Naigaon, when a man on a scooter approached my car and started banging on the window, hurling abuses at the same time. He made me pull over and asked me to roll down the window. As soon as I did that, he put his hand inside the car, opened the door and got inside. He snatched my mobile, and told me that my car had banged into his two-wheeler, causing damages worth `20,000. He claimed that his hand was also injured in the accident. Soon, two-three other men joined him. They wanted me to withdraw `20,000 from the ATM and give them. When I told them that I didn’t have that much money in my account, they threatened to call the police and started abusing me. By then, I was scared. Finally, they took the entire money in my wallet (`700), returned my phone, and left. I was too shaken to drive for some time and remained inside my car. When they saw that I had not left, they came back, and asked me to drive off immediately. I think they were scared that I would call the police.”

He is planning to file a police complaint now. He concluded saying, “I went to Mira Road Police Station, but I was told that this falls under the jurisdiction of Vasai Police Station. So, I will do the needful in a day or two.”

We hope justice is served.

Choudhary is currently seen in Happu Ki Ultan Paltan and is also known for his role in Yeh Un Dinon Ki Baat Hai.

Ajith is expected to join the sets soon. Another 50-60 days of shoot is left and the makers are hopeful of wrapping up by February 2021, as per a report by The News Minute.

The shoot of Valimai was stopped in February after Ajith suffered a minor injury on the sets while shooting a bike sequence. “Ajith was shooting for a bike-chase sequence in the city when his vehicle skidded. In the process, he bruised his arms and legs. The actor took a break of about 20 minutes and continued shooting for his portions. Only after he wrapped up the shoot did he visit his family doctor,” a source had said.

Being directed by Vinoth, the film also stars Huma Qureshi as the female lead. It is being produced by Boney Kapoor, who has reunited with Ajith after Nerkonda Paarvai.

Originally planned as a big release for Diwali 2020, the project is likely to hit the screens next year during a big festival weekend. Meanwhile, reports have emerged that Ajith will team up with filmmaker Sudha Kongara next for a yet-untitled Tamil project.

Arjun Mathur: I am now an International Emmy nominated actor, it feels pretty good to say that

Published

The International Emmy Awards 2020 nominations have been announced and the actor who has earned a spot this time is Arjun Mathur. He has been nominated in the Best Performance By An Actor category for Made in Heaven for his portrayal of Karan Mehra in the web series. And he sure is elated, but understandably “still in shock”.

The actor was “clueless” till a friend informed him about the recognition. “Getting the award isn’t even a thought; I mean this nomination is enough. The jury have got so much work from all over the world and picked you and two-three others. I really can’t believe it,” he shares.

Radhika Apte had a Best Actress nomination at last year’s Emmy.

Mathur says the credit is never his alone. The first thing he did was to call Zoya Akhtar and Nitya Mehra to thank them because it’s their creation and for providing him with the opportunity.

“What’s more amazing is that we go through years in our career with all these doubts and insecurities and not feeling good enough, and then something like this happens, and that’s it. Signals like this give you hope. It tells you that both happiness and rejections are fleeting, you just need to keep walking,” he adds.

One would expect an international recognition like to translate into career opportunities, but Mathur doesn’t look at it like that.  

“I can’t say. I just know that I would like to keep my own expectation tempered because having high expectations only leads to disappointment. I’m now an International Emmy nominated actor, it feels pretty good to say, now I would little more known in the international arena. But as far as the industry here is concerned I can’t speak for them. At the end I’m just an actor waiting to be cast, and it’s for filmmakers to decide if they want to work with me,” he adds.

Mathur as Karan was well appreciated. But this isn’t the first time he played a homosexual character. He played similar roles in Mira Nair’s Migration (2007) and Onir’s I Am (2010). “It has been a risk every time because you run the chance of being written off,” he says.

So is it right to say what Bollywood didn’t do for him, web did? But the actor does not want to look at it that way and asserts that it’s all about well-written content. “This project was made without keeping any commercials in mind, so an actor like me could be cast in a leading role. What matters is content reaching worldwide. The advent of streaming world made many things possible. Bollywood is doing what it does best. That now there is no limitation as to what content we put out is enough. I hope actors feels more inspired to look to other avenues; take risks rather than only trying for big budget A-list Bollywood films. I hope content keeps getting better and holds more weight and power over stars and everything else,” he adds.

Mathur also hopes that medium related division should diminish. “Cinema is as credible as TV, as credible a projector, as credible as a streaming platform or for that matter even a stage, and some performance on the road. It’s just a way of telling a story. I think it’s all about taking the right product to the audience without too much of noise,” says Mathur, who’s looking forward to Made in Heaven season 2 and other projects to start.
