Trailer of Prem Kumar Films’ debut movie “Lateef to Laden” launched

Director Shahid Kazmi and a star cast including Tariq Imtyaz, Pari Choudhary and Mir Sarwar recently launched the trailer of Prem Kumar Films’ upcoming dark comedy “Lateef to Laden”, in Mumbai.

Also present at the launch were MTV Roadies winners Shweta Mehta, Pooja Bisht, Hitanshu Jinsi, and actress Sheena Chohan. Not only was the excitement among guests palpable but the makers also received a very positive and favourable response from everyone present.

Lateef to Laden is the story of a shepherd called ‘Lateef’ from a small village in Kashmir who dreams of joining the defence forces although he is not very well educated. Lateef likes a girl named ‘Chandani’ who admires militants. To impress the girl he loves, Lateef starts impersonating a militant leader who happens to be a close ally to Osama. All this triggers a series of events that will not only be a laughter riot but also keep viewers on the edge of their seats throughout the film. To understand whether Lateef finally gets the girl of his dreams, one must surely watch this amazing film.

“The entire film was shot in Poonch, Kashmir primarily because we wanted a location where the culture and environment resemble that of Pakistan. Every character in the film is from Poonch which ensures that viewers get a realistic feel throughout the film. ‘Lateef to Laden’ is a dark comedy built around a cute love story which is what leads to all events that happen in the film,” said director Shahid Kazmi who is best known for factual films like ‘Damini the victim’ and ‘Burahan Wani (which triggered a controversy around Kashmir in 2017)’.

Prem Kumar’s journey to stardom was not a cakewalk. However, he attributes his success to the struggles he faced. From a Security Supervisor and Fabrication Engineer, Prem became a theatre artist, actor and producer. Speaking about this, he said, “I have always wanted to be an actor ever since I can remember. I have dabbled in theatre and also walked the ramp during the Lakme Fashion Week in Mumbai. Given that Lateef to Laden is my debut film, it will always be close to my heart. The story is fresh and the concept is new—something that we are sure everyone from a kid to an adult will enjoy. I urge all of you to go and watch the film.”

Actor Mir Sarwar who was last seen in Neeraj Pandey’s directorial venture ‘Aiyaary’ will also be seen in the movie. “I loved the concept and idea of Lateef to Laden the moment I heard it. I have always supported independent films especially those made in Jammu and Kashmir. It is a small contribution on my part to support the local film industry. Lateef to Laden gives a new perspective to some very poignant issues and I would request everyone to go watch the film with an open mind,” said Mir Sarwar.

Debutante actors Tariq Imtyaz and Pari Choudary are also an integral part of this movie. Lateef to Laden releases on 26th October 2018.

Kritika Kamra celebrates Daughter’s Day with her parents!

Kritika Kamra, who made her stellar debut with Mitron, recently celebrated Daughter’s Day with her parents.

The versatile actress feels she is lucky to be the daughter of her doting parents and considers them as the strong pillars behind her success.

A source close to the actress says, “Kritika is very close to her parents and they have always encouraged her to be successful in her career and accomplish all her dreams. Her upbringing is the reason she is one of the empowered and successful women achievers in the country today”.

Kritika informs, “Since my childhood, I was always told I am a woman who is equal to a man. My mother never stopped me from doing anything that a girl “isn’t supposed to do” and papa never decided what I can or cannot wear. I went out with my male friends. I decided to quit college and become an actress. I lived alone in Delhi and then Mumbai and experimented life, relationships and careers.”

Kiara Advani bags Bhushan Kumar, Murad Khetani, Ashwin Varde’s ARJUN REDDY REMAKE

Since the time it has been announced, the Hindi remake of the Telugu blockbuster, Arjun Reddy, has been a major point of discussion. The edgy love story first made waves when the director of the original, Sandeep Vanga, was taken aboard by producer Bhushan Kumar’s T-Series with Krishan Kumar and Cine1 Studios’ Murad Khetani and Ashwin Varde to helm the Hindi version as well. After that, the film made headlines when Shahid Kapoor was locked to play the title role. Starring opposite Shahid Kapoor for the first time is Kiara Advani who will essay the role of his love interest.

It’s sheer coincidence and destiny that Kiara was the first to be considered when the director initially started scouting for his heroine. Kiara and Sandeep had even met and discussed the possibility. But later, due to date issues (the film was supposed to go on floors in August earlier), the talks took a bit of a backseat. Now that the film is going on floors in early October, things fell back in place. Early this week, Kiara was signed for the film and the actress has even started her creative meetings with Sandeep Vanga.

For Kiara, this could easily be a game-changer as this is one of the most challenging roles of her career so far. “Arjun Reddy has always been one of my favorite films,” she says. “There are so many shades to the heroine’s character; I’m very excited about it.”  The film will require Kiara to have several variations in terms of performance as well as look.

As Sandeep puts it, “Kiara epitomizes the female character in the film to the T. She has the perfect combination of innocence (in terms of looks) and maturity (in terms of performance) that’s so important for the character.”
