Kantara actor Kishore and Shah Rukh Khan’s NGO made the headlines today.
From Kantara’s Kishore talking about Yash’s KGF 2 to Shah Rukh Khan’s NGO stepping forward to help Delhi accident victim’s family, here are the biggest headlines of the day.
Kantara actor Kishore Kumar recently shared his thoughts on KGF: Chapter 2. Kishore revealed that he does not enjoy the KGF style of narrative. Instead of such “mindless” films, he prefers to support small, content-based movies that are based on significant subjects. “I don’t know if it’s right or wrong but I haven’t watched KGF 2. It is not my type of cinema. It is a personal choice,” he told India Today. The actor added, “I would rather watch a small film that is not successful but deals with something serious than something that is mindless.”
