Kamal Haasan's 'Marudhanayagam' at the Cannes film market

Kamal Haasan's 'Marudhanayagam' at the Cannes film market

Looks like Kamal Haasan is going all out to revive 'Marudhanayagam', which was put in cold storage several years ago owing to financial crises. The poster of Marudhanayagam displayed with Sangamithra at the Cannes 2017, has fuelled speculations that superstar Kamal Haasan has revived his dream project.

The period film, which revolves around the life of the 18th century warrior Mohammad Yusuf Khan, was expected to release in Hindi, Tamil, Telugu and English. Though the film kick-started in 1997, it was shelved due to various reasons.

Earlier this year, the film was set to be revived by Ayngaran International and Lyca International, who are currently bankrolling Rajinikanth starrer 'Endhiran 2'. The speculations was due to Ayngaran International posting a picture of Kamal Haasan's Marudhanayagam. Now, the poster of the film displayed at the Cannes has strengthened the rumours that the star actor is looking to revive the project as soon as possible.

Kamal Haasan had earlier revealed that several of his friends abroad are willing to finance this venture and Kamal is being prodded to consider taking up Marudhanayagam and finish it off as a treat for his loyal fans.

Triple talaq: Will issue advisory against practice, says Muslim law board to Supreme Court

Triple talaq: Will issue advisory against practice, says Muslim law board to Supreme Court

The All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) on Monday, filed an affidavit in the Supreme Court in the Triple Talaq matter.

In its affidavit, AIMPLB said that it would issue an advisory requesting individuals who perform the nikah (marriage) to follow the following steps.

Firstly, the individual performing the nikah will advise the bridegroom that in case of differences leading to a divorce, the bridegroom shall not say talaq thrice in one sitting. "This is an undesirable practice in Shariat," said the law board in its affidavit.

Secondly, the individual performing the nikah will advise both the bride and the bridegroom to incorporate a condition in 'nikahnama' to exclude resorting to pronuncement of three divorces by her husband in one sitting.

A five-judge Constitution bench headed by Chief Justice JS Khehar has reserved its verdict on a clutch of pleas challenging the constitutional validity of triple talaq among Muslims.


MS Dhoni hits a gigantic six as the ball goes out of Stadium !!!

As they say, form is temporary and class is permanent, it was evident for yet another time as former Indian captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni came back to some run-scoring form in the 16th match of Vivo IPL 10 between Rising Pune Supergiant and Royal Challengers Bangalore. Dhoni was due for a big score after failing to make a mark in the first 4 encounters. In addition to that RPS lost their last 3 games which added to their misery.
Speculations have been going on regarding the batting position of MS Dhoni ever since the flamboyant Jharkhand lad was removed from the captaincy duties. In the first 4 matches, he came out pretty late in the innings with RPS already struggling and failed to play his natural game. He wasn’t timing the ball and looked rusty in all of the 4 matches.
As the law of averages say that a man missing out in the first 4 matches is expected to perform the next time around, it was exactly what we witnessed from the cool customer. He came out in the middle at the fall of Rahul Tripathi’s wicket and wasn’t able to time the ball perfectly. He wasn’t hitting the middle of the bat which added to the frustration of Dhoni.
Meanwhile, RPS got off to a good start and after the fall of two wickets, Dhoni and Smith came out to bail RPS out of the precarious situation. The partnership was slowly building as both started accumulating runs. The talking point of the innings came in the final delivery of the 14th over as MSD came dancing down the track to deposit Yuzvendra Chahal over the long on region for a gigantic six.

From April 1 onward, Reliance Jio customers opting for Jio Prime service will get unlimited data and calls till March 31, 2018, for one time registration fee of Rs 99 and Rs 303 per month.

Rival Airtel, on the other hand, is giving away 30GB free data for three months to its postpaid customers, which can be availed before March 31.
