When Sonu Sood stated in Singh Is Kinng that he would first sit and cry

Sonu Sood has appeared in two movies so far this year, but he once considered giving up acting altogether. After he lost his mother Saroj Sood in 2007, this took place. After she passed away, Sonu made the decision to stop acting, but his father Shakti Sood persuaded him to carry on.

The actor, who will turn 49 on Saturday, decided to stay in the film business after all, but found it difficult to work. Before he had to stand up and act out comedy scenes, he once admitted that he used to sit and cry on the sets of Singh Is Kinng. Sonu played a gangster in the movie, which was released in August 2008, less than a year after his mother passed away.

In 2017, Sonu stated to ETimes, “She (his mom) came to the Jodha Akbar sets at ND Studios Karjat on October 1 and she told me that it would change my life. She left on October 4. My younger sister was getting married on October 16, so I was supposed to go home on October 14, but on October 13, I got a call informing me that my mom had passed away in her sleep. I was shivering and did not know how to book my tickets.

Sonu, who is well known for his charitable work, also remembered how his mother was active in charity work and was motivated to follow in her footsteps. He declared, “Every October 13th, I leave everything and return to Punjab to hold a langar and establish a trust to support college students’ academic endeavours. Although that makes me happy, there is currently a sizable void she has left in my life that cannot be filled. All her life, she never accepted payment for her instruction, and I have since met her pupils from all over the world. She would ask me to pick up my scooter and accompany her to a student’s home in the village near Moga if they failed to show up for class.

Shakti Singh, Sonu’s father, passed away in February 2016. Later on in the year, Sonu founded Shakti Sagar Productions in his father’s honour. Sonu last appeared as Chand Bardai in the film Prithviraj, which also starred Manushi Chillar and Akshay Kumar.

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.
