Before Priyanka Chopra in the Matrix 4, Lara Dutta Was Approached for the Original Trilogy?

Priyanka Chopra joining The Matrix 4 has been a huge news when it came out a couple of months. This has been one of Priyanka’s big projects in her Hollywood journey, since she played the main antagonist in Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron’s Baywatch. Not to mention, headlining an American series, Quantico, as the lead. The Matrix 4 brings back Lana Wachowski, one of the Wachowski sisters who directed the original trilogy, along with its lead stars, and Carrie-Anne Moss. Jada Pinkett Smith and Lambert Wilson are also reprising their characters from the original trilogy. Priyanka Chopra Joins Keanu Reeves’ Matrix 4, Will Start Shooting for it in Germany.

Priyanka Chopra will also be joined by other new cast in Neil Patrick Harris, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Jessica Henwick, Jonathan Groff, Andrew Caldwell, Brian J Smith, and Ellen Hollman. While the details of her character are still unknown, the actress has resumed shooting for the recently after the lockdown restrictions were lifted. The Matrix 4 would possible release on April 1, 2022.

Now let’s do a little throwback. All Priyanka Chopra fans know that before she entered movies, she was a beauty crown and was crowned Miss World in 2000. The very same , Lara Dutta, Priyanka’s co-star in Andaz, was also crowned Miss Universe. And did you know that Lara was the first to be for The Matrix films, when the original trilogy was made? Matrix 4: Keanu Reeves’ Upcoming Sequel Gets Delayed By Over a Year, Will Now Release on April 1, 2022.

As per reports, post her Miss Universe-win, Lara Dutta was approached for the role of Persephone, a crucial character that appeared in the Matrix sequels, Reloaded and Revolutions. Popular French actress Monica Bellucci later played the role.

According to these reports, Lara Dutta, who was last seen in the Hotstar series Hundred, turned down the role because she wasn’t happy with the script. However, in an interview given to Bollywood Hungama in 2016, she clarified that wasn’t the reason at all.

She said, “Let’s face it that it will only require a fool’s brains to be turning down the role because of the script. But the fact is that it is true, I was offered a role in The Matrix. But this happened during my ‘Miss Universe’ days. I turned it down as my mother fell really sick during that time and I very badly wanted to come back home and be with her.”

While we are disappointed that we couldn’t see Lara shine in the role of the femme fatale in the Matrix films, circa 2022, Priyanka Chopra gives us a reason to be proud, as she (hopefully) kicks ass in bullet-time along with Keanu Reeves.

Senate passage of President Joe Biden’s $1.9 trillion Covid relief bill on Saturday brought the massive legislation one step closer to law.

But first, the bill has to go back to the other side of the Capitol, where the House — which already passed its own version of the bill — is scheduled to vote Tuesday to approve the changes made in the Senate. That vote is expected to succeed on a party line, as it did in the Senate, with a narrow Democratic majority.
Only after the House passes the Senate version would it land on Biden’s desk.

After that, the turnaround time — between it being a more than 600-page bill and money in people’s pockets — could be relatively quick. People could start seeing the $1,400 stimulus payments hit their bank accounts within days of Biden signing the bill — which is expected to happen soon after the House votes on Tuesday.
For the previous pandemic stimulus bill, the Internal Revenue Service started out the second round of payments — that were up to $600 — three days after then-President Donald Trump signed that bill in late December. But it’s possible that tax filing season, which is currently underway, could slow down the process this time.
The payments do not go all out at once. Those whose bank information is on file with the IRS would likely get the money first because it would be directly deposited into their accounts. Others may receive paper checks or prepaid debit cards in the mail.
Still, millions of people could be at risk of missing out because the IRS does not know how to reach them. An estimated 8 eligible people did not get the first stimulus payment, worth up to $1,200, which was approved last year and delivered over the spring and summer. While most people received the money automatically, very low-income people who don’t normally file tax returns may have to take an extra step to register online or file a 2020 tax return.
This time, individuals earning less than $75,000 and couples earning less than $150,000 would receive the full $1,400 payment, plus an additional $1,400 per dependent. But the third round of checks would phase out faster than earlier payments — completely cutting off individuals who earn more than $80,000 a year and married couples earning more than $160,000, regardless of how many children they have. Payments would reach about 90% of families, according to an estimate from the Penn Wharton Budget Model.
Unemployment benefits
As for unemployment benefits, the Senate and House bills differ on the provisions.
If the House approves the Senate’s changes and the bill is signed by Biden in coming days, the jobless may see little or no break in payments. But it depends on their state.
The Senate bill would continue the existing $300 weekly federal boost and two key pandemic unemployment programs through 6. The House bill would provide a $400 weekly enhancement and continue it and the two pandemic programs through August 29.
The Pandemic Unemployment Assistance program provides benefits to freelancers, gig workers, independent contractors and certain people affected by the pandemic, while the Pandemic Emergency Unemployment Compensation program increases the duration of payments for those in the traditional state unemployment system.
Unlike the relief package Congress approved in December, this legislation should be signed before any laid-off workers run out of benefits, and there are far fewer changes than in the prior bill, said Andrew Stettner, senior fellow at The Century Foundation. Still, some states will wait until the US Department of Labor releases all the necessary guidance to reprogram their systems.
Most states should start sending out the jobless benefits in less than three weeks, he said.
Without an extension of the programs, an estimated 11.4 million would begin to see their benefits start to lapse after next weekend and phase out over the next month, according to The Century Foundation. The $300 enhancement is also set to end next weekend.
When Congress passed the last relief bill extending the unemployment programs, some of the jobless had already started exhausting their pandemic benefits, which were created last .
Also, lawmakers added the $300 weekly enhancement and made changes to the pandemic programs. And Trump waited to sign the bill until after benefits had lapsed for millions more out-of-work Americans.
Some states were able to enact the new provisions swiftly, but others took more than a month. The delays left the unemployed waiting for $17.6 billion in benefits in January, according to a separate analysis by The Century Foundation.
Child tax credit
Other measures in the package, however, are new or involve larger changes to existing programs — including temporary enhancements to the child tax credit and federal premium subsidies for Affordable Care Act plans, as well as for COBRA policies for laid-off workers who want to keep their employer health insurance coverage.
These would take longer for federal agencies to implement so it could be several weeks, or even months, before Americans receive them.
For instance, families may not see the boost in the child tax credit until the summer.
The House and Senate bills call for increasing the credit to $3,600 for each child younger than 6 and to $3,000 for each child between 6 and 17 in 2021. It is currently a $2,000 credit for kids between the ages of 6 and 16.
The credit would also become fully refundable for the year and may be paid out monthly, rather than as a lump sum at tax time.
Families could receive half their total credit as a periodic payment starting in July and running through the rest of the year, according to the legislation. They could then claim the remaining half on their 2021 tax returns.
Health insurance subsidies
Americans who would qualify for the relief package’s heftier federal premium subsidies for Affordable Care Act policies would need to wait until the new regulations are programmed into the Obamacare exchanges, which might take a few weeks.
Enrollees would pay no more than 8.5% of their income towards coverage, down from nearly 10% now. Also, those earning more than the current cap of 400% of the federal poverty level — about $51,000 for an individual and $104,800 for a family of four in 2021 — would become eligible for help. The provision, which is retroactive to January, would last for two years.
Lower-income enrollees could have their premiums eliminated completely for the same period, and those collecting unemployment benefits could sign up for coverage with no premiums in 2021.
The adjustments to the existing subsidy programs could be done rather quickly, but the provision for the unemployed may take longer to implement since it is new, said Larry Levitt, executive vice president for health at the Kaiser Family Foundation.
Once the systems are updated, those who already have Affordable Care Act policies could return to the exchange to see if they now qualify for assistance or larger subsidies. Also, the uninsured have until May 15 to enroll in 2021 coverage on the federal exchange, Healthcare.gov, and have extended sign-up periods in most states that run their own marketplaces. Biden directed the reopening of the federal exchange through an executive order in late January.
Also, the Senate legislation provides a full premium subsidy through the end of September to laid-off workers who want to remain on their employer health insurance plans through COBRA. The House bill would require them to pay 15% of the premium, which could still prove costly.
This provision could take longer to roll out since it’s an entirely new benefit.
Meanwhile, food stamp recipients would continue to get a 15% increase in benefits, but the boost would last through September, instead of expiring at the end of June, under the bills passed by both the Senate and House.

Sajid Khan Pays Emotional Tribute to Late Brother Wajid Khan with a Change in Surname, Says ‘Call Me Sajid Wajid’

Published

Sajid Khan, of the popular duo Sajid-Wajid, says his life has changed drastically ever since brother Wajid’s demise in June last year. “Please feel free to call me Sajid Wajid because I have changed my surname to Wajid. As long as I’m alive, I’ll keep working hard so that everyone remembers his name,” a teary-eyed Sajid uttered with pauses, for words, as he opened up to IANS. Composer Sajid Khan Wants Fans to Call Him Sajid-Wajid, Says ‘I Am No One Without Him’.



“Life has changed a . I don’t know what to say. Somewhere I have a feeling that he is always with me and that’s what keeps me going. But everything has changed — our home, people’s perspectives, everything. He was just 47, and in these 47 years he has never been separate from me. We have grown up together eating from the same plate, and suddenly he passed away in front of my eyes. I still can’t believe this,” he said. Indian Pro Music League’s Anthem Is Special for Sajid Khan As It Is His Last Composition with Late Brother Wajid Khan.




“I don’t talk on this topic much. I have sealed Wajid in my heart. He is very much intact in my heart and will always be there,” he said. Talks veers to the emerging fad of online performances in the time of Covid. Is he interested in doing something like that? “I did a few online performances last year — that too so that I could entertain Wajid, because he was hospitalised at that time. After that, I haven’t done any online performance. I think I want to stick to film music right now, it is a huge responsibility,” Sajid replied.

Talking about Bollywood music, netizens often complain about remixes dominating the scene and original compositions taking a backseat. What is his take? “I am not doing that (remix), so I am not affected by what people say. This is a phase which will eventually pass. Bollywood is like a sea, and music patterns are the waves. So many waves come and go, this is one of them. Some work, some don’t,” the composer explained.




“Talking about entire India, not just Bollywood, our music will continue to live as long as we retain the melody. We are very melodious people who feel like singing and dancing on every small occasion. Different phases will come and go but good melody and lyrics will never die in Indian music,” he further suggested.



Sajid is currently associated with the Zee TV music reality show “Indian Pro Music League”. Talking about the same, he shared: “This is a very next generation show which accommodates so many people and provides us a good scope for interaction with the contestants of our teams. Maybe today’s joining the show will turn out to be the captains 10 years later! They are getting a good opportunity for music as well as grooming through this show.”

Since the show promises to an opportunity to new singers, what quality does Sajid look for in a budding talent? “The first quality which I see in a new singer is whether he or she is a good human being and well mannered. If you are a moderate singer, I can bring out your talent by using certain techniques. But for me it is important that you are a good human being more than a good singer,” concluded the musician.

Bombay Begums Review: Pooja Bhatt, Amruta Subhash’s Web Series Leaves Critics Divided

Published

on

By




On International Women’s Day today, a lot of content has been designed to cash in on the craze. Bombay Begums is one such webseries that started streaming today on Netflix. A story of four women and their journeys to become queens of their own world. Alankrita Srivastava has mastered the art of picking stories that take a woman’s story further and make them commercially rich. Lipstick Under My Burkha and Dolly Kitty Aur Chamkate Sitaarein did just that. Bombay Begums takes the narrative of oppressed women deciding to get back further. But critics didn’t find it as pleasing as the story suggests. Bombay Begums Director Alankrita Shrivastava Says Making Women-Oriented Films Is Not Easy in Bollywood



Many believe that Alankrita’s storytelling is a trainwreck while some are of the view that her Bollywood-isation of stories don’t let the story flourish on their own. Check out some reactions from the critics.




News18Bombay Begums is a classic example of letting go of good opportunities in the name of sticking to the theme. Just when the audiences begin to feel a connection with the show, it changes track. The six-episode show loses steam within the first two episodes and then keeps beating around the bush for the rest of it.

Indian Express: There have been ambitious women in the movies and TV shows before, so it isn’t exactly virgin territory that ‘Bombay Begums’ treads. But where it scores is in its decision to create full-bodied female characters who refuse to be likeable, or to conform. And in the way, it shows us just how much women themselves are complicit in maintaining the status-quo, once they reach a certain position.




Hindustan Times: Bombay Begums isn’t a show about men and women; it’s a show about power, and the extent to which certain people are willing to go, regardless of their gender, to onto it. It isn’t an absolute train wreck like Shrivastava’s previous Netflix release, Dolly Kitty and Woh Chamakte Sitare — a superficial examination of serious issues — but there’s still an element of preachiness to the proceedings. It’s inelegant, but empowering in its own way.



NDTVMovies: Bombay Begums rides on a clutch of top-notch , not the least by Pooja Bhatt, making a comeback. She slips into the skin of the conflicted Rani without missing a trick. Amruta Subhash, splendidly uninhibited, is a consummate scene-stealer. Shahana Goswami tackles a complex role with striking acuity, conveying gentility and assertiveness with equal .
