Simu Liu ‘shook’ after altercation with ‘aggressive professional autograph seekers’ who threw soda at his car

After an uncomfortable meeting with ‘professional autograph seekers’ during a book signing event in the United States, Simu Liu has announced that he will file charges. Professional autograph seekers are people who strive to obtain a celebrity’s autograph in order to sell it to their fans for a profit. Simu was signing books for his fans when he got into a fight with several autograph seekers. Simu’s memoir, We Were Dreamers: An Immigrant Superhero Origin Story, was released last month.

Simu rushed to Twitter on Wednesday to share his thoughts on the incident, which left him shaken. The incident occurred at the conclusion of his book signing in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, he disclosed. The autograph seekers even followed him after he left the event and tossed a Coke can at his car, according to the actor.

He penned, “At the end of my book signing in Philadelphia, I had a minor altercation. Look, I’m attempting to create a genuine connection with my viewers. There’s no way in hell I’ll sign for you if you come to my events and harass me or make my fans uncomfortable. Don’t step over the line.”

The actor then posted a fuzzy photo of a car with no licence plate that he claims belongs to the autograph seekers, threatening to press charges. He penned, “I took the best photo I could, but these professional autograph seekers followed us out of the Philly event and then dumped Pepsi in our window. They immediately dashed to their car to remove the front licence plate, making it impossible for us to identify them. Thankfully, we had someone capturing the situation, so we’ll find them and file a report with the police. Everyone is fine, but we’re a little concerned that this may happen.”

The Canadian actor is well known for his part in the TV series Kim’s Convenience, which he last appeared in in the Marvel feature Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings in 2021. He’ll next be seen in Margot Robbie’s romantic comedy Barbie.

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.
