Kartik Aaryan To Star In Ram Madhvani’s ‘Dhamaka’ & Why We Think It’s A Career-Changing Movie

Kartik Aaryan was just an ordinary person looking for his place in the industry and like any other outsider, he followed the conventional path and moved to Mumbai to pursue his dreams of acting. He hasn’t been an overnight success and it’s been a roller-coaster ride as he has had to face rejection, stay in rented accommodations with other flatmates and the likes during his days of struggle.

Kartik marked his debut with Luv Ranjan’s Pyaar Ka Punchnama and he was stereotyped as a guy who can deliver monologues and do movies like the Punchnama series. He was even targeted for the misogynistic approach of the franchise. 

And even though it wasn’t looking great for him post the Punchnama series, things changed after Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety. In Pati Patni Aur Woh, he experimented with his looks and character. In Love Aaj Kal, he proved that

I’m a Celebrity star Mo Farah faces locusts, fish guts and maggots in trial

Sir Mo Farah’s wife Tanya said she cried with laughter watching her husband face snakes, locusts, fish guts and maggots in the latest trial in I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!

The athlete took on the Fort Locks challenge in last night’s episode of the ITV programme.

He said he was “disappointed” with his efforts after he got nine stars from a possible 12 during the trial, in which he had to find the  prizes buried within a range of unpleasant surprises including insects and fish entrails.

Sir Mo Farah’s wife Tanya  told The Daily Drop: “I was crying laughing.

“I thought it was brilliant. I didn’t think he’d react as scared as he did – He didn’t know what was in there so probably thought it was snakes in every box.”

Sir Mo was tasked with retrieving the stars from holes built into the walls of the

Herb Solow Dead: Producer Brought ‘Star Trek’ to NBC

Herbert F. Solow, a longtime television executive who pitched the original “Star Trek” series to NBC while he was at Desilu Studios, along with “Mission Impossible” and “Mannix,” died on Thursday, his wife, Dr. Harrison Solow, confirmed. He was 89.

In later years, he and his wife wrote several books on the “Star Trek” series, including “Inside Star Trek: The Real Story” and “The Star Trek Sketchbook.”

Solow was brought in by Lucille Ball after her divorce from Desi Arnaz to help revive Desilu Studios, where he helped develop and sell “Star Trek” to NBC — after CBS originally turned it down because it already had “Lost in Space” — as well as “Mission: Impossible” and “Mannix” to CBS.

Solow helped guide “Star Trek” creator Gene Roddenberry on their pitch to the network, and continued to champion the series until Ball herself got behind the effort.

Solow told the publication

‘Euphoria’ Star Sydney Sweeney Joins Drama ‘American Sole’

“Euphoria” star Sydney Sweeney has joined Pete Davidson and O’Shea Jackson, Jr., in the STXfilms drama “American Sole.”

Camila Mendes, Bad Bunny and Offset are also starring in “American Sole.” The announcement was made Friday by Adam Fogelson, chairman of STXfilms Motion Picture Group.

Sweeney reteams with Davidson after previously co-starring in the film “Big Time Adolescence.” Sweeney will play Bella, a beautiful social media influencer.

STXfilms unveiled “American Sole” in August. Davidson and Jackson are playing twenty-somethings with mountains of college debt who use the fast cash of after-market sneaker reselling to achieve their American dream. But when their startup runs out of cash and a shady investor is their only way out, the dream quickly becomes a nightmare.

“Sydney Sweeney is an incredible talent who is catapulting as a star,” Fogelson said. “She delivers stand out performances in ‘Euphoria,’ and ‘Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood,’ and she’s

‘Fatima’ star Lucia Moniz: Film ‘brings up the power of love’

NEW YORK, Nov. 20 (UPI) — Love Actually actress Lucia Moniz said she relished the dichotomy of playing a devout Catholic who doubts her own daughter’s claims of seeing the Virgin Mary in Fatima, a film based on real events and people.

“Maria doesn’t believe in her daughter and she is also afraid of what impact this is going to have on everyone, which is something that shouldn’t be the priority,” Moniz told UPI in a recent Zoom conference.

Instead of being stunned by her daughter’s story, worried about what her neighbors will say and fearful that God will punish her family because her child lied, the actress said Maria should have respected her daughter’s convictions, then defended her.

“It doesn’t mean that she believes the Virgin Mary appeared, but believing in her daughter, that’s a different thing and that’s very, very important between parents and sons and daughters
