Entertainment: Kangana is at her best in ‘Simran’ 

Despite Kangana’s good performance, ‘Simran’ has opened to a poor 8-10% response and morning collections look less than last weeks ‘Poster Boys’, reported Box office of India

Kangana Ranaut’s Simran released on Friday. The film is about an unconventional, 30-plus Guajarati divorcee Praful Patel who lives with her parents in Atlanta, works in the housekeeping department of a plush hotel and lives life on her terms.

Besides Praful, every character in the film is one note, from the rigid father to the helpless mother to the scary moneylender to the sincere suitor. These actors seem particularly stagey and theatrical in contrast with Ranaut, who shines with a spontaneous and often irresistible performance. Sure, her character’s English improves and worsens inconsistently, but Ranaut makes it work, especially in brilliant moments like when, about to confess to her crimes, she compares the feeling to that of losing control of her bowels, reported NDTV.

Twitter is appreciating Kangana for her performance.

Bollywood singer Bappi Lahiri has dubbed for legendary musician Elton John in the Hindi version of Fox Star Studios’ upcoming spy-action film Kingsman: The Golden Circle.

John is making a special appearance in the movie. The film also features Colin Firth, Julianne Moore, Taron Egerton, Halle Berry and Channing Tatum.

“When Fox approached me to dub for Elton John's role in Kingsman: The Golden Circle I just lapped it up. This was an offer I could not refuse. It is an absolute honour for me to dub for Elton who is such a big legend. The beauty is that we both are so similar, our style, our dressing, the way we sing. In fact, a lot of times, people confuse me for Elton when I am travelling abroad,” said Lahiri.

The singer-composer said he had a great time dubbing for the role. “His role will leave an impact on you. He is hilarious in the film,” he added.

Kingsman: The Golden Circle will release on September 22, 2017 in India.

Media mogul Oprah Winfrey's first segment as a 60 Minutes correspondent will air during the season premiere of the show's 50th season. The series will be broadcast on September 24.

It is, however, unknown what subject Winfrey will cover in her first “60 Minutes” story.

In January, the CBS announced that the 63-year-old talk show host would join the long-running news magazine in the coming season.

The network welcomed Winfrey as a “special contributor” to the acclaimed news mag, adding she would make her first appearance on the Sunday franchise later this year.
