'ਕੌਮ ਦੇ ਹੀਰੇ' ਹੁਣ ਕਦੇ ਵੀ ਰਿਲੀਜ਼ ਨਹੀਂ ਹੋਵੇਗੀ। ਫ਼ਿਲਮ ਦੇ ਪੋਸਟਰ, ਬੈਨਰ, ਸੀਡੀ ਵੀ ਨਹੀਂ ਬਣਾਈ ਜਾ ਸਕਦੀ। ਸੈਂਸਰ ਬੋਰਡ ਨੇ ਫ਼ਿਲਮ ਨੂੰ ਜਾਰੀ ਕੀਤਾ ਸਰਟੀਫਿਕੇਟ ਵਾਪਸ ਲੈ ਲਿਆ ਹੈ। ਅਗਸਤ ਵਿਚ ਸੈਂਸਰ ਬੋਰਡ ਨੇ ਫ਼ਿਲਮ 'ਤੇ ਬੈਨ ਲਾਇਆ ਸੀ। ਜਾਂਚ ਵਿਚ ਫ਼ਿਲਮ ਨੂੰ ਕਾਨੂੰਨ ਵਿਵਸਥਾ ਵਿਗਾੜਨ ਵਾਲਾ ਪਾਇਆ ਗਿਆ ਹੈ। ਗ੍ਰਹਿ, ਸੂਚਲਾ ਤੇ ਪ੍ਰਸਾਰਣ ਮੰਤਰਾਲੇ ਦੀ ਇਤਰਾਜ਼ਾਂ ਤੋਂ ਬਾਅਦ ਫ਼ਿਲਮ 'ਤੇ ਰੋਕ ਲਾਈ ਗਈ ਹੈ। ਇਸ ਵਿਚ ਇੰਦਰਾ ਗਾਂਧੀ ਦੇ ਹਤਿਆਰਿਆਂ ਨੂੰ ਹੀਰੋ ਦੱਸਿਆ ਗਿਆ ਹੈ।
Bollywood filmmaker Karan Johar said that regional cinema is not his cup of tea because he doesn't understand the dynamics involved in vernacular movies.
Johar, who is the owner of Dharma Productions, said his production company is not a public listed studio.
"I am not a public listed studio. For me I don't want to do anything which I don't understand. I understand the ethos of Hindi cinema. I know what I can do with it, platform it and position it. So I don't want to produce regional films or an English language film," he said on the sidelines of NFDC's Film Bazaar.
The latest release by Dharam Seva Records has been titled Masley (referring to real issues), the track is by Deep Singha and music is by Thee Emenjay.
Using a fuse of modern sounds the track is made to send out a message to the Indian music industry.
The message is that there are many other issues that can have songs made on other than just songs about girls and alcohol. It is an attempt to awaken the conscious behind the writers and makers of music.
An attempt to plea to artists to make more music on real issues which also need to be raised in the world today.
Punjabi filmmaker Manjeet Mann, who co-produced National Award-winning film "Shaheed-e-Mohabbat Boota Singh", says there are movies from her state that are rich in content too.
During a session titled "Cinemas of India - Punjabi cinema" at the Film Bazaar, which concluded here Monday, she talked about the common misconception when it comes to Punjabi movies.
"Punjabi cinema is not just about 'balle balle'. I like to make films on true stories and most of them are tragedies," said the director of "Sukhmani - Hope for Life".

After Nikhil Advani's Delhi Safari, it's perplexing that Indian filmmakers don't choose to create make-believe worlds, or use animals and contemporary environments as subjects of their animated efforts. There's rarely any payoff trying to achieve photorealism while portraying real humans, because liveaction does that far more convincingly. However, unlike this year's Kochadaiiyaan, director Harry Baweja chooses a valuable story to retell.
Actor Salman Khan, who's been hosting India's biggest reality show since four years now seems to really helping around a lot of actors who have not made it big in the industry by referring them to the show. Industry is abuzz with rumours that veteran actor, Raj Babbar's son- Arya Babbar, who's a famous actor in the Punjabi film industry but hasn't been able to work wonders in Bollywood, is set to participate in the eighth season of Bigg Boss. And guess, that's all thanks to Salman, who's a family friend.
Music is always inspiring and richer when it comes from personal experiences. And this is what Punjabi singer Diljit Dosanjh considers as his driving force — his profound love for his native place and his proximity towards his village and home.
Diljit, who is primarily a singer, has also ventured into acting. He has performed in Bollywood box-offices like Jatt and Juliet 2, Patol Patiala and ‘Punjab 1984’, for which he was under the spotlight as it revolved around the anti-Sikh riots.
The Mumbai Censor Board has imposed a ban on the screening of upcoming Punjabi film “The Blood Street”, produced by Harji Movies International. There were plans to release the film worldwide on October 10.
As per the film director Darshan Darvesh, “the five member panel of Mumabi Censor Board has refused to give clearance to the film and has sent it to Chennai for clearance.” He said the film cannot be screened in India until it gets clearance from the chairperson of Chennai censor board.
Come October, rapper Yo Yo Honey Singh, popular for songs Blue Eyes and Sunny Sunny, will set out on an eight-city tour in the country as a part of LIVE Viacom18’s new annual property, MTV Super Stage.
He will travel to Pune, Jaipur, Indore, Lucknow, Jalandhar, Gurgaon, Kolkata and Guwahati for the concert, the aim of which is to take popular music stars to fans in smaller cities, a source said.
