Shah Rukh Khan New Delhi, July 18 (IANS) Acclaimed actress and social activist Shabana Azmi firmly believes that the rage that builds up in citizens post events such as the recent Mumbai blasts, must translate into constructive actions to avoid such tragedies in future.

“Unless the guilty, whoever they maybe, r given severest punishment, hearts will only get further divided. Zero tolerance 4 terrorism (sic),” Shabana posted on her Twitter page.

A series of three blasts rocked Mumbai Wednesday evening, and the city, which was hit by the 26/11 terror attacks in 2008, was left in shock once again.

“It breaks my heart that d period of shock reduces with each attack and we go bc to business as usual. Constructive rage must find solutions,” she added.


Sonam’s balancing act

Actress Sonam Kapoor would have missed the recently held unveiling of the theatrical trailer of her forthcoming film “Mausam”, had she not requested her “Players” producers for a short break.

Sonam was about to give the event a miss, but she really wanted to be a part of it and asked for a few hours off from her pre-booked schedule of “Players”, according to a source close to the actress.

Sonam promised to be back on the shoot as soon as possible, and managed to balance her responsibilities to both her projects.

“Mausam” producer Sheetal Talwar of Vistaar Religare Film Fund says he was glad that Sonam could make it to the event.

“It was great that Sonam could make it for the launch, after all ‘Mausam’ is a love story and would have truly been incomplete without her,” Talwar said in a statement.

“Mausam”, which is actor Pankaj Kapoor’s directorial debut and stars Shahid Kapoor in lead role, will release Sep 16.


‘Ferrari Ki Sawaari’ producers spend Rs.500,000 on fruit!

While Shah Rukh Khan has spent over Rs.100 crore on “RA.One”, the producers of “Ferrari Ki Sawaari” have splurged Rs.500,000 on arranging sweet limes for a song sequence.

“We were shooting for this song in Mumbai and we were told that because of the off season there aren’t enough fruits available for the scene. The crew panicked initially but after a lot of struggle we managed tons of mausambis (sweet limes) for the song sequence,” Rajesh Mapuskar, the film’s director, said in a statement.

The fruit had to be arranged for a song called “Life”, which compares life with a fruit like sweet lime. The crew managed to arrange the fruits from wholesale markets at the eleventh hour.

“Ferrari Ki Sawaari” is about a young father’s’ endeavour to fulfill the dream of his son. It features Sharman Joshi in the lead.
