Bollywood Drug Probe: Karan Johar Gets Clean Chit as FSL Finds No Evidence Of Film Stars Consuming Illegal Substance At His House Party

The controversy surrounding the alleged indiscriminate dumping of PPEs and other unsegregated garbage, by a production crew hired by Karan Johar’s Dharma production, for a shoot in a Goa beach village last week, continued to brew on Wednesday. Goa’s Waste Management Minister Michael Lobo has now demanded an apology from the Mumbai-based Dharma Production, failing which a fine for littering would be imposed. “First of all, the directors or owners (of Dharma Production) should apologise to the people of Goa for doing such a thing. Tender an apology on Facebook, that it was an error and accept fault. We will fine (them) otherwise. Dharma Production will be fined by the Goa Waste Management,” Lobo said. After Kangana Ranaut’s Jibe at Karan Johar, Goa-Based Line Producer Who Worked for Dharma Productions Says the Actress Is Spoiling State’s Name

Earlier on Wednesday, a day after Kangana Ranaut highlighted the issue on Twitter, claiming that careless dumping of garbage harms the environment, Goa-based line producer Dilip Borkar, who had been hired by the Karan Johar production firm, said that the national award winning actress did not know ground realities. “No one knows the ground reality. Kangana Ranaut does not know anything about what is happening here. This is wrong. She is spoiling Goa’s name,” Borkar told a press conference in Panaji on Wednesday. “There are efforts to defame us. We do not know why, maybe because Dharma Production is involved or Karan Johar’s name is involved,” Borkar said. Kangana Ranaut Shares Video That Alleges Karan Johar’s Team Threw Biomedical Waste on Roadside at Nerul Village in Goa – WATCH

The controversy erupted after photos of garbage bags indiscriminately dumped by the film production crew went viral on social media, following which the Entertainment Society of Goa (ESG), a government agency which oversees film-shoot related regulation, issued a show-cause notice to Borkar. The notice had said that norms of garbage disposal were not followed, while disposing of non-biodegradable waste, which included PPE gear used in the film shoot.

Borkar said that the shooting for the Dharma Production film starring Deepika Padukone, was being carried out in a villa in the beach village of Nerul in North Goa and the daily collection of garbage was dumped at a site designated by the local village Panchayat authority. “The garbage was disposed of by a local contractor appointed by the village Panchayat every day. Only on Sunday, he failed to do so, after which the photos went viral,” Borkar said. The controversy went viral after Rananut on Tuesday uploaded photos of the littered garbage bags on Twitter.

“Movie industry is not a virus just for the moral fibre n culture of this nation but it has become very destructive and harmful for the environment also, @PrakashJavdekar ji @moefccAsee this disgusting, filthy, irresponsible behaviour by so called big production houses, pls help Folded hands,” Ranaut said in her tweet.

Shraddha Kapoor in Nagin Trilogy: 5 Films of Ranbir Kapoor, Shah Rukh Khan, Sushant Singh Rajput That Tell Why Announcing Franchises at the Start Itself Is a Bad, Bad Idea

Shraddha Kapoor in Nagin Trilogy: 5 Films of Ranbir Kapoor, Shah Rukh Khan, Sushant Singh Rajput That Tell Why Announcing Franchises at the Start Itself Is a Bad, Bad Idea

Shraddha Kapoor is all set to play a shape-shifting snake in Nagin, a film that is directed by Vishal Furia. What’s more, it will be a trilogy with Shraddha reprising her character in all the three movies. Furia had earlier directed a horror film in Marathi called Lapachhapi, and is now helming its remake in Hindi, starring Nushrat Bharucha. With Shraddha playing a snake, she joined the elite club of Reena Roy, Sridevi, Rekha, Meenakshi Seshadri, Mallika Sherawat, Manisha Koirala, not to mention, Mouni Roy on small screen, who have played human-turning-snakes in the past. Confirmed! Shraddha Kapoor To Play Naagin On The Big Screen; Lapachhapi Director Vishal Furia To Helm The Film.

But this story is not about the movies where an actor turned snake – while we are at it, do check out this little oddity called Hatya – The Murder, where Akshay Kumar gets possessed by a snake! We are more interested in Nagin‘s trilogy being announced even before the release of the first film. As Howard once mentions in The Big Bang Theory, announcing a trilogy even before a film’s release shows studio’s confidence in the project. While that makes sense, here in Bollywood, things don’t usually work out accordingly.

Now we have successful franchises and trilogies in Bollywood, and then not so successful ones. But there is a pattern that strangely doesn’t change. Nearly all the successful franchises in Bollywood have all been planned and continued after the success of the first film – be it Dhoom, Golmaal, Krrish, Dabangg, Race, Singham etc. There was no major announcement of continuing the film as a franchise, before the first one released, and it’s only the success of the film that prompted the producers to flag the sequels. Shraddha Kapoor to Play Naagin On-Screen! Netizens Flood the Internet With Funny Memes and Jokes (View Tweets).

On the other hand, whenever the makers announce a franchise or trilogy in advance, it has mostly resulted in the plans getting stuck in the first film itself. The lack of box office success didn’t gave the producers enough confidence to continue the franchise, and we have some very glaring examples of that.

Bombay Velvet

Ranbir Kapoor and Anushka Sharma in Bombay Velvet

Although Ranbir Kapoor’s character dies at the end of the film, director Anurag Kashyap had plans to continue the franchise without him. But they were dropped when this big budget film tanked badly at the box office.

Ra.One

Shah Rukh Khan in Ra.One

Shah Rukh Khan’s superhero film is perhaps the most successful movie in this list, having earned more than Rs 100 crore at the box office. But the lack of profitability and critical acclaim didn’t allow Ra.One to get a sequel, though the makers had given strong feelers about making it a franchise.

Jagga Jasoos

Ranbir Kapoor in Jagga Jasoos

Ranbir Kapoor wanted to make his maiden production as a franchise on par with Hollywood levels. But the time and money invested in making the first film and its very average performance at the box office, put a spanner in his dreams. Though the film ends with a very enticing tease of a sequel featuring Nawazuddin Siddiqui, that sadly, will never happen!

Drive

Sushant Singh Rajput and Jacqueline Fernandez in Drive

Drive, starring the late Sushant Singh Rajput and Jacqueline Fernandez, was one of the worst films to come out last year. However, when Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions had announced the film, it was to be a franchise! In the matter of two years though, Drive turned out to be such an unsavoury product that it was dumped on Netflix. Drive: 10 WTF Moments in Sushant Singh Rajput, Jacqueline Fernandez’s Netflix Film That We Still Can’t Get Over With.

Bhoot Part One: The Haunted Ship

Vicky Kaushal in Bhoot Part One: The Haunted Ship

Karan Johar returns to this list again, this time with another franchise-promising film, now in horror genre. The Vicky Kaushal-starrer even had a Part One in the title to express its ambitions of being the first of a franchise, but the below-par performance of the film had left the producers mum on the sequel. Bhoot Part One the Haunted Ship: 11 WTF Moments in Vicky Kaushal’s Horror Film (SPOILER ALERT).

Interestingly, Karan Johar and Ranbir Kapoor are both involved in another announced trilogy – Brahmastra, whose first film itself has seen a series of delays and is awaiting release.

While we don’t want to put any aspersions on Nagin trilogy – it could be really good – considering how Bollywood has have unfortunate luck when it comes to revealing its card before the first game is played, wouldn’t it have been safer to just announce one Nagin film before the trilogy. What happened to that promised sequel to Saaho?
