Vin Diesel is the highest grossing actor of 2017

Vin Diesel has earned the title of the top grossing actor this year, reported Forbes.

The actor earned $1.6 billion in global ticketing receipts owing to the highly successful eighth installment of Fast And The Furious. The film grossed $1.2 billion at the global box office and became the second-best performer in the action-packed, car heist series.

Although his film xXx: The Return of Xander Cage alongside Deepika wasn’t well received by critics, it topped $300 million worldwide – which boosted his score.

Second on the list is Vin’s Fast And The Furious co-star Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson, at $1.5 billion, who owes it to the car saga for making up for the spectacular loss of his film Baywatch.

Wonder Woman, Gal Gadot, makes it third on the list with $1.4 billion. Her superhero film made $822 million worldwide and become the highest-grossing live-action movie ever directed by a woman.

Asad Ahmed releases New ‘Rebirth’ music video

Asad Ahmed releases New ‘Rebirth’ music video
In July this year, veteran guitarist Asad Ahmed released his first solo album titled Rebirth. On December 18, he, through EMI Pakistan, released the music video of the album’s title track. The video, directed by Amaan Ahmed, shows the Karavan co-founder in the northern areas of Pakistan playing the guitar amid the mountains and waters.
The whole premise of Rebirth is that it’s a song about rediscovery,” he told Pakistan Showbiz“In the video, it’s about me being a wanderer, looking for truth in the vast scenery, whether it is on a mountain or a boat. It’s basically self-discovery for me.”
The video interestingly shows just Asad walking and interacting and playing guitar in the nature. Nowhere in the video, has one seen other human life, as to put the focus on the dialogue between Asad and nature. He explains, to achieve that, they had to travel for hours to find the right spots. “For me, it makes the video very personal. This was my idea. I wanted to go capture these places, not only for the song but because, as much as this is about my self-discovery, it’s also intended to portray a positive image of Pakistan,” said Asad, adding that not many travel to the places, like Passu glacier.
At one point in the video, we see Asad, wearing black, standing on a mountain while the camera aerials back in the sky, blending the guitarist’s body form in the textural background. He explains it was in fact a glacier with a landslide on it. “I kept telling them to hurry up and take the shot because I could feel it melting under my feet. It took four hours of trekking to get up there.”
The 10-track instrumental album, which released in summer, has been receiving positive response from across the world, according to Asad. As to the market of instrumental music in Pakistan, he said this is where digital platforms come in. “In this digital age, we are not just catering to a specific region. The fact that this video will be seen everywhere, once you start being insular and focus on one territory, it would limit us. Right now, as it stands, this album is geared towards an international market, including Pakistan. We have a small instrumental music listening market, but a very dedicated one.”
In an earlier interview, Asad talked about the stories behind all the tracks in the album, which is a culmination of four years of writing and recording. “I feel like Rebirth is me shedding my skin and coming clean. It’s about my rebirth. I’ve extensively worked for decades and while I’m proud of the work I’ve done, I feel times have changed,” he said. “I listen to Pakistani music and I listen to the music produced globally and I see ours is quite outdated. So, with Rebirth, I am saying this is the sound of the 21st century and the future.”

Pahlaj Nihalani claims it’s illegal to export film

Former CBFC chief Pahlaj Nihalani claims it’s illegal to export film before certification

Following massive protests, Viacom18 Motion Pictures announced in a statement that they were voluntarily deferring the release of the film out of “respect and regard for the law of the land” including the Central Board of Film Certification”.

Mumbai: Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmavati which has been in the eye of the storm in the country owing to its historical content has got a clearance from the British censor board despite being deferred in India. The film hasn’t been cleared by the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) in India yet. Interestingly, the film which was slated to release on December 1 here, will now be screened on the same day in the UK.

However, former CBFC chief Pahlaj Nihalani, who always found himself in the middle of controversies, has claimed that it is illegal to export a film before getting clearance in India.

Nihalani, during an interview with Time Now said, “First of all he (probably referring to Sanjay Leela Bhansali) cannot export the film and get the certificate before certification in India. Because after the clearance only one can export the film. He has done it. It is illegal. As CBFC Chairman, I have in the past taken action against 2-3 producers. The government will come to know and I think he will face the tune of the legal action.”

Following massive protests, Viacom18 Motion Pictures, the studio behind Padmavati, on November 19, announced in a statement that they were voluntarily deferring the release of the film out of “respect and regard for the law of the land” including the Central Board of Film Certification”.

They said a new release date will be announced once the “requisite clearances” are in place.
