 With one day left for the release of Titli how are you feeling?

I am very excited. We did not make it for the festivals. Never thought of Cannes. It was always meant for the Indian Audiences. Humari mitti, humare characters, humari kahani… It is all told in a very simple language. I am therefore very curious to see the reactions of the Indian audiences.Continue reading ““I feel jittery whenever Titli is called an indie” – Kanu Behl”

Guddu Rangeela Review: High on Promise, Low on Delivery

Guddu Rangeela is a prominent singer in Bhojpuri music industry, famous or rather infamous for his songs that are laced with sexual innuendos and crass lyrics.
