Hotel Mumbai has been impressing all and sundry with their heart-wrenching trailer. As Dev Patel and Anupam Kher get together to imbue a lease of life into the gruesome act of terror on Mumbai, members of the film fraternity are all praises for the film’s trailer. The newest to shower the film with love is the fabulous Ananya Pandey. She said, “I watched the trailer of Hotel Mumbai, it gave me goosebumps throughout the runtime, the events of 26/11 were one of the most gruesome chapters in India’s history. The movie is a tribute to all those brave heroes who did their part and helped save as many lives as they could and this movie is an ode to their bravery.”
The film directed by Anthony Maras is a retelling of the fateful night but the film takes in the narrative of the staff present at the Taj Mahal Hotel that was attacked by the gunmen. Chef Hemant Oberoi played by Kher and his team protected the guests at the premises, ensuring that they are safely sneaked out of the hotel when the gunmen were hunting them down. It celebrates the spirit of the many unsung heroes of 26/11 whose names haven’t got their real due.
As a young, conscientious actress, Ananya came out in huge support of the film and stood by its message.
As Dev Patel chased down the character of Arjun a turbaned Sikh working under Chef Hemant Oberoi in Anthony Maras’ upcoming film Hotel Mumbai, he knew it was uphill task preparing for the part that’s so far removed from his real self. Patel was born and raised in England by Gujarati Indian Hindu parents but he had great compassion for the Sikh community who bore the brunt of the 9/11 attacks. The actor understood the hate came from the lack of representation of Sikh characters in international films that triggered him to reason with his director why Arjun should be a Sikh in the film.

Talking about his prep, he said, “I spent about a month with my coach Raghuveer Joshi working on the accent and the pitch. Since the character is fictional, there was no reference point. Looks-wise we built him up from ground zero. I had to completely change my appearance, work on my Hindi and Punjabi at the same time and ensure that the words sound correct in terms of tonality. I had done neither of these before but I am glad the film made me push myself to try out an uncharted territory personally. The story is close to me as I was shooting here for one month and the next in my house in London my parents looking at the TV screens and watching Mumbai burning, it was horrible!”

Campfire Graphic Novels – the pioneers of Graphic novels in India has launched the most awaited Graphic biography of Lakshmibai, the Rani of Jhansi.

The role of Lakshmibai, the Rani of Jhansi, in that uprising has been an inspiration for future Indian freedom fighters and her name has passed into legend as that of a fearless woman who resisted the might of the colonial British forces.
Unjustly deprived of her kingdom by the British, Lakshmibai, ruler of the princely state of Jhansi, mounted a brave resistance against the British while being unwillingly drawn into the sepoy uprising of 1857. Her leadership and bravery captured the hearts of many, friend and foe alike, and till this day, she lives on as a symbol of hope against tyranny in the hearts of countless Indians.
