When she is included in the Guardian’s list of the greatest big-screen performances, Alia Bhatt beams.

Actress Alia Bhatt from Bollywood is overjoyed that a prestigious international journal named her work in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Gangubai Kathiawadi as one of the year’s top performances. She responded to the news and posted it on social media.

The writers of The Guardian published a list of the greatest and worst big-screen performances in history. Legends like Tom Hanks, Cameron Diaz, Lupita Nyong’o, and Jennifer Lawrence were included with Alia. She portrayed a brothel madam who campaigns for sex workers’ rights in the movie.

According to the article’s author Mike McCahill, Alia “makes great emotional sense of a rollercoaster character development as the real-life figure of Ganga Harjivandas, the self-improving sex slave who became queen of Mumbai’s red-light district in the 1960s. Her incredibly expressive dance in the drum piece Dholida tells a story all by itself. It’s a thunderous three-minute accounting of everything this woman has won and lost, going from group triumph to personal misery.

Based on a chapter in Hussain Zaidi’s book Mafia Queens of Mumbai, Gangubai Kathiawadi was created. It depicts Gangubai’s journey, who was pushed into prostitution at a young age. As she advances through the ranks, she turns into a ferocious madam of the brothel and a political figure. Ajay Devgn, Vijay Raaz, Seema Pahwa, and Indira Tiwari all have significant parts in the movie.

When it hit theatres earlier this year, the movie was a success. Over 200 crore rupees were made worldwide. The movie was also one of the most watched Indian movies on Netflix, appearing in the top 10 list for six weeks in a row with 50.6 million viewer hours.

It received three stars from Shubhra Gupta of The Indian Express, who described it as “a spectacle made genuine by Alia Bhatt’s performance.” “What elevates it above your typical Bhansali spectacle is Bhatt’s willingness to go the extra mile: beneath the profanities, the binges on alcohol, and the pontificating on platforms, some of which come off as ‘acting,’ Alia Bhatt makes her Gangubai real. A piece of her review stated, “We are forced to experience the pain of the ladies whose lives are so constrained and who feel so abandoned by their loved ones that they can find companionship, rough and tumble it may be, only amongst themselves.

Alia Bhatt is enjoying a terrific year, first with Gangubai Kathiawadi’s popularity and then with the enormous success of RRR and Darlings. Brahmastra, her most recent release, also did well commercially. With Heart of Stone, the actor will shortly make her Hollywood debut.

Startups that use excerpts from their own pitch are sent legal notifications by Shark Tank India; the creator responds, “Kaise banega naya India?”

After getting a legal letter from Sony Pictures for copyright infringement, the subscription-based tea business Dorje Teas found itself in deep water for utilising footage from their own pitch on YouTube and Meta advertisements.

The founders of the subscription-based tea company Dorje Teas, Ishaan Kanoria and Sparsh Agarwal.

While many entrepreneurs, especially those with startups, have found transformation through the business reality TV series Shark Tank India, the narrative is slightly different for Dorje Teas, a subscription-based tea firm that ships organic and fresh-from-the-farm Darjeeling Tea to consumers throughout India. Sony Pictures Networks India slapped the firm with a legal notice, which has placed it in hot water.

Co-founder Sparsh Agarwal of the company, who brought Dorje Teas to Shark Tank India last year and raised funds of Rs 30 lakh for 15% equity from Anupam Mittal, Peyush Bansal, and Vineeta Singh, valued the business at Rs 2 crore, recently revealed on LinkedIn that they received a legal notice from Shark Tank India for utilising snippets of their own pitch.

Agarwal claims that they received a notification about copyright infringement for utilising these clips in YouTube and Meta advertisements. It appears that Sony Pictures has sent notice to other companies besides Dorje Teas. He said, “They’ve clamped down on every single startup that showed up on Shark Tank, so we’re not the only ones.”

“I don’t understand why they would do this, even though I am aware of the copyright rules that justify it. After all, Dorje Teas and several other businesses, like Skippi, Assembly, Perfora, Hoovu Fresh, Beyond Snack, Wakao Foods, Nasher Miles, and many more, invest thousands of dollars each month to enhance Shark Tank content, which helps the Shark Tank India brand get free exposure and increase brand memory,” he continued.

Agarwal went on to call it a poor business choice that some executive or lawyer at Sony had made, adding that it “goes against the entire ethos of promoting small startups.”

Additionally, the focus of Shark Tank Season 3 has been on creating a new India and assisting the startup environment in India. “How will we construct a ‘new India’ in this manner?’” he questioned in a self-recorded video.

On social media, Agarwal was met with praise, while some contended that Sony’s actions were legitimate in theory. “Dear Sparsh, you must realise that ‘You are the content’ in this situation. You play a big part in content production. You posted the material that features you on your social media accounts (Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, and so on), but not on Sony’s. You might say that the traffic they were supposed to get was somehow redirected to them. A content strategist made the observation, “You are monetizing your social channels with the content they produce.”

“The first person to provide a sneak peek in the content industry attracts greater attention. Furthermore, it’s possible that you agreed to sign a waiver giving them perpetual rights to the footage they shot. They said, “Verify your contract or try to recall signing any electronic documents on the filming locations that make this clear.

“You are investing lakhs of dollars to promote Shark Tank, while Shark Tank is investing billions of dollars to plan and publicise the programme that features your brand.” Simply alter your viewpoint, as another poster pointed out.
