Bollywood actor Anupam Kher is currently busy in promoting his upcoming film Shiv Shastri Balboa. On Sunday afternoon, the actor was in Delhi heading for screening of his film. He left for the film's premiere; however, he had no choice but to board an autorickshaw in Delhi due to the dense traffic. Anupam greeted the driver after getting out of the auto and then proceeded to Connaught Place to see the movie. Anupam Kher took to his Instagram and posted the video. Sharing the clip he captioned, : #ShivShastriBalboa #SpecialScreening ! ! #Life #KuchBhiHoSaktaHai #Humour View this post on Instagram A post shared by Anupam Kher (@anupampkher) The actor held a press conference earlier on Saturday where he discussed his movie, having his own face prominently shown on a movie poster, and much more. He said, Shiv Shastri Balboa is not a cliche. It is not about a senior citizen trying to find his peace and calm. This is not a man going please listen to my story. No. He runs away from his home in a night suit to ensure Neena's character reaches the airport. Shiv Shastri Balboa is a spice of life, not slice of life. He also added that Shiv Shastri Balboa's characters will resonate with the viewers, When we watch films, we often watch it like someone else's story. But with this one, I assure you everyone will identify with one or the other character. After being in show business for more than three decades, veteran actor Anupam Kher says his upcoming feature film Shiv Shastri Balboa is significant because it allowed him the chance to play the titular role. Anupam said, After 38 years I have a poster for myself, and I say this with pride, not regret. That body on the poster is not mine. I must thank you all for thinking that could be me. Let me add that by the grace of God, my body is similar, he further added. The film, which was directed by Ajayan Venugopalan, is marketed as a compelling account of an Indian man's struggle for existence in a small town in America. Additionally playing significant roles in Shiv Shastri Balboa are Neena Gupta, Nargis Fakhri, and Sharib Hashmi. Anupam Kher has many interesting projects lined up in his pipeline. The actor started working onThe Vaccine Waras well. This is his second collaboration with director Vivek Agnihotri after last year's blockbusterThe Kashmir Files. The actor also has Kangana Ranaut's directorialEmergency. Other films are Kuch Khatta Ho Jaaye, Anurag Basu's Metro In Dinowith Aditya Roy Kapur and Sara Ali Khan,The Signaturewith Mahima Chaudhry,IB71andNautanki.

Controversy In retaliation, the Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) members screened The Kashmir Files in University of Hyderabad. TNM Staff SFI students watching the BBC documentary Resisting the censorship imposed by the Narendra Modi-led Union government against BBCs documentary, India - The Modi Question, several student groups have been organising screenings simultaneously in various universities across the country. On January 26, on the occasion of Republic Day, student groups at the English and Foreign Languages University (EFLU) and the University of Hyderabad (UoH) watched the banned documentary in their campus premises. A student from EFLU said that around 60-70 students gathered in the campus and watched the documentary on their cell phones and laptops. The student said that the event was planned impromptu and was not publicised fearing a restraint by the administration. Following this, there was a discussion on the documentary and broader issues of censorship, threats to freedom of expression, and the culture of suppression in university spaces, the student said. Similarly, the Students Federation of India (SFI) unit of University of Hyderabad had also organised a screening of the documentary at the Ladies Hostel of the campus on Thursday. In retaliation, the Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) members screened The Kashmir Files at a different venue in the campus. The events concluded peacefully without any disturbance. Earlier, the students belonging to the Fraternity Movement group had also screened the documentary in the campus, following which, an inquiry was initiated by the University administration. Students of EFLU watching the documentary on their laptops and phones The BBC documentary had critically examined the role of Narendra Modi in the 2002 Gujarat riots, during which he was serving as the Chief Minister of the state. The documentary had interviewed the UK bureaucrats who were independently probing the 2002 violence. It also interviewed the BBC journalist who had covered the riots. For the first time, the BBC declassified the UKs 2002 report, which directly held Narendra Modi responsible for the large-scale violence. The violence resulted in the deaths of at least 2000 people. The Vishva Hindu Parishad and its allies acted with the support of the state Government. They could not have inflicted so much damage without the climate of impunity created by the state Government. Chief Minister Narendra Modi is directly responsible. His actions have not just been guided by a cynical assessment of political advantage. As an architect of the BJPs Hindu nationalist agenda, which it has pursued in Gujarat since it came to power in 1995, he is a believer in the VHPs ideological motivation, the report said, which was exclusively accessed by The Caravan. The documentary had looked into the complicity of the State in the anti-Muslim riots that left at least 1,38,000 people displaced. The UKs 2002 classified report also said that the 2002 violence was pre-planned. Police contacts confirmed that rioters used computerised lists to target Muslim homes and businesses. The accuracy and detail of the lists, including businesses with minority Muslim share-holding, suggest that they were prepared in advance.
The Students Federation of India (SFI) on Thursday organised the screening of the controversial BBC documentary on the 2002 Gujarat riots at the University of Hyderabad (UoH) here even as the RSS' student wing, ABVP showed the controversial film 'The Kashmir Files', on the campus.
