Bollywood superstar Akshay Kumar asserts that nothing can replace the cinematic experience, adding that releasing films digitally is only a way to adapt to the changing realities in the Covid-19 era. Asked if he felt the same rush releasing his new film Laxmii on OTT as he feels with his big screen releases, Akshay told IANS that there is vast difference, adding that nothing can replace the theatrical experience. Ram Setu: Akshay Kumar Announces New Film on Diwali 2020, Shares First Look Poster

“Farak toh padta hai (there is a difference). Cinema on the big screen… big screen is big screen, and an outing is an outing. Watching a movie at home on TV or a mobile doesn’t have the same charm as watching the movie on a big screen,” said the actor, who is known for picking right projects and hitting the right notes at the box office. “Watching cinema on a big screen has a charm of its own. Just like when you take this interview on the phone or virtually, it is not as much fun as it had been if it was face to face. It is exactly the same for us,” he added. Akshay Kumar’s Laxmii, Abhishek Bachchan’s Ludo, Rajkummar Rao’s Chhalaang – Ranking All Hindi Diwali 2020 Releases From Worst to Best (Onhike Exclusive)

The actor continued: “In these Covid-19 times, ek doosre se milna mushkil ho gaya hai (meeting people has become difficult). Yeh waqt ka takaza hai, waqt jaise chalta hai uss hisab se humne chalna padta hai (It is what these times demand. We have to adapt to changing times). Just like you have to work from home, we also have to do this (release film on OTT).”

His latest release Laxmii was intended for the big screen, but the makers opted for a digital release due to the disruptions caused by the coronavirus pandemic. The horror comedy is a remake of the Tamil blockbuster “Muni 2: Kanchana”. Raghava Lawrence, who had helmed the original, has helmed the Bollywood remake, which also stars Kiara Advani, and Sharad Kelkar. Akshay plays a character who is possessed by the ghost of a transgender in the film.

Talking about the feedback after release, he said: “Not many critics have liked it. I do understand it. The original one also got one or one and a half stars. But the business was very good. Nevertheless, to each his own. Every critic has their own right to write what they feel. I made it, it is a very ‘massy’ film. So, obviously there will be different points of views.” “The most important thing is the streaming platform that released the movie are very happy. That is one of the most important things,” shared the actor about the film that premiered on Disney+ Hotstar.

On the professional front, the actor is busy as ever. He has wrapped up the shoot of his upcoming spy thriller Bell Bottom, and is working on the period drama, Prithviraj. He will also wrap up Aanand L. Rai’s love story Atrangi Re this year, before starting work on Bachchan Pandey. Akshay’s next release is Rohit Shetty’s Sooryavanshi. He plays a cop battling terrorism in the film co-starring Katrina Kaif.

Drew Barrymore Opens Up About Her Love for Cooking, Says ‘It Is Both Ritualistic and Romantic’

Hollywood actress Drew Barrymore says cooking is very important to her, ritualistic and romantically. “Cooking is something very near and dear to my heart and important to me and ritualistic and romantic. One of the ways I self-educated myself growing up, because I didn’t go to school, was I became a reader, a voracious reader,” Barrymore told IANS. “After I had children I basically stopped reading, anyone who has children knows why, and the thing I transferred to was cookbooks, and I became a voracious cookbook collector. Drew Barrymore Opens Up on Divorce from Will Kopelman, Says ‘It Felt like Everything Was Just Wrong’

I average about 2 or 3 cookbooks a week. I fell in love with the art of sitting down on a couch with a cookbook and in about 20 minutes you can really dive in and sometimes as a working mother that is an insane task to accomplish. Life is so busy and so full that it’s hard to take time for yourself,” she added. At the moment, she is busy with “The Drew Barrymore Show”, which she hosts and backs as producer. The show brings forward positive stories, humour along with celebrity guest interviews. Drew Barrymore and Adam Sandler Reboot 50 First Dates for a Funny Pandemic Parody (Watch Video)

“I have a lot of different interests. It’s why I really loved directing because I could go to work and think about the music I loved or casting, production design, editing, writing, art, literature, travel, wonderment, imagination, comedy, chemistry, romance. I could put it all into this one job. And this is exactly what a talk show has the opportunity to do and we can incorporate all of them into the show like cookbook club,” she said. “The Drew Barrymore Show” airs on Zee Cafe in India.
