Neetu Kapoor was unable to attend the awards ceremony because she was unable to do so without Rishi Kapoor: ‘I’m uncomfortable, and I need my son or husband.’

Neetu Kapoor, who lost her spouse Rishi Kapoor in April 2020, claimed that she is still finding it difficult to do things without him. Neetu admitted that she skipped a recent event where she was supposed to receive an award because she felt uncomfortable going alone.

At the age of 15, Neetu met Rishi. After appearing together in films such as Rafoo Chakkar, Khel Khel Mein, and Amar Akbar Anthony, the two married in 1980. After their marriage, Neetu stopped acting for a few years. Since then, she’s participated in four films, all of which featured Rishi: Love Aaj Kal (2009), Do Dooni Chaar (2010), Jab Tak Hai Jaan (2012), and Besharam (2013). Since her leave from the industry, Neetu will be making a comeback with JugJugg Jeeyo, which she has characterised as the first film she hasn’t done as a favour to Rishi.

Neetu remarked in an interview with PTI that it was difficult for her to act without Rishi after such a long time. She also stated that she still feels the need to have the late actor, or their son Ranbir Kapoor, by her side whenever she leaves the house for a film event.

“The first day I went on set (JugJugg Jeeyo), I also shared a picture on Instagram saying it was the first time I was stepping outside the house without him,” she explained. I’m convinced he was blessing me and making my life easier. But, to be honest, refusing to act with him was difficult. It was difficult. Even now, when I’m called for an event, I’m unable to attend.

I can go to a shoot without him, but not to a film function. I was recently asked to a large event where they intended to present me with an award, but I am unable to attend without him. I’m hesitant to go alone. That confidence is still lacking in me.”

“I need my son or my husband around me,” Neetu remarked. Perhaps it will take some time for me to adjust to that aspect. As an actor, I can go to work because I have my crew, and they are with me, so I am comfortable. But not now, nor else.”

The film JugJugg Jeeyo, which also stars Anil Kapoor, Varun Dhawan, Kiara Advani, and Tisca Chopra, will be released in theatres on June 24. Viacom18 Studios and Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions are producing the film, which is directed by Raj Mehta.

Cannes 2024: All We Imagine As Light by Payal Kapadia creates history and receives an eight-minute standing ovation

At its world premiere on Thursday at the film festival, Payal Kapadia’s All We Imagine As Light—the first Indian film in the Cannes competition in thirty years—made quite a stir and impressed viewers around the globe.

The film received one of the longest standing ovations of this year’s film festival, lasting eight minutes, after its premiere.

All We Imagine As Light dominating critics
The picture scripted history at the festival and puts Payal in the running for the coveted Palme d’Or. In addition to being the first Indian production in the competition in thirty years, Deadline claims that Payal is the first female Indian director to have a film screened in the Cannes competition.

“India produces a great deal of excellent films. Not only does each state have its own film industry, led by incredibly talented directors, but not only Bollywood. Payal expressed her excitement and happiness that her picture was chosen to Deadline. “I hope that after this we won’t have to wait another 30 years,” she said. We weren’t prepared for it, and it’s an honour because there are so many directors in the category who I find truly inspiring.

This year, Payal faces off against Jacques Audiard, Yorgos Lanthimos, Paul Schrader, David Cronenberg, and Jia Zhangke.

Dancing their path to success
The movie’s cast and crew were beaming on the red carpet prior to leaving for the premiere.

On the Palais stairs, the entire team exuded joy and even danced their way up to the theatre. On the red carpet, the cast was all smiles, making a lot of funny poses and grabbing everyone’s attention.

Kani Kusruti, Divya Prabha, Chhaya Kadam, and Hridhu Haroon are among the actors in the movie.

Payal feels honoured that she has the opportunity to create history at the film festival and demonstrate to the world that Indian cinema is much more diverse than Bollywood.

preliminary evaluations
After the screening, the movie is receiving excellent reviews. According to Sophie Monk-Kaufman of IndieWire, “This casual everyday vignette is brimming with a sensuality (the rain, the clothes, the food, the women) that people don’t tend to notice when caught up in the rhythm of life,” the film is “gorgeous and absorbing,” according to one review. Realising just how complete these moments are requires a snapshot taken by an outside photographer.

Variety referred to it as a “glowing portrait of urban connection and unexpected sisterhood,” while The Guardian described it as a “dreamlike and gentle modern Mumbai tale that is a triumph.”

At that point, the two women make the decision to drive to a beach resort where they can freely pursue their aspirations.

Payal makes her feature debut in the movie. A Night of Knowing Nothing, the documentary she did before, won the Golden Eye prize at the Cannes film festival a few years ago.
