Marvel boss Kevin Feige has finally revealed why the title of Avengers: Endgame was kept under wraps until after Infinity War was released. He has a solid reason for keeping fans guessing for the longest time. Actor Pankaj Tripathi has opened up about playing a wide gamut of characters and delivering memorable performances in new age films.
Gearing up for a major character is Saif Ali Khan, who says his role of an antagonist in Tanaaji is not inherently wicked. In today's entertainment wrap, we take a look at the biggest newsmakers from the world of fashion and films, both national and global.
There was suddenly a fair amount of speculation surrounding the Avengers franchise as soon as Infinity War ended with a disappointing turn of events and an unclear cliffhanger, clinically building up to the sequel Avengers: Endgame. Marvel boss Kevin Feige has now come up with a reason as to why they did not reveal name of the fourth Avengers film before Infinity War was released. He says that if the makers would have revealed that the fight against the mad titan Thanos would be a two part series, Infinity War would have failed to surprise the audience like it did.
Actor Pankaj Tripathi has managed to get a strong footing in Bollywood, which largely stems from the fact that he exercises his acting talents within the wide gamut of human emotions. He is as nuanced and subtle in serious roles as he is slapstick in his comic ones. In a freewheeling conversation, he discusses films, favourite actors, the pressure that comes with being loved, the rise of small-town India in Hindi cinema and more.
Actor Saif Ali Khan will be seen essaying a negative character in the Om Raut directed period action-drama Tanaji: The Unsung Warrior. Saif plays Udaybhan Rathod, a Rajput military man in Aurangzeb's army, who fought against Maratha general Tanaji Malusare (played by Ajay Devgn) in the famous battle of Sinhagad. Saif has come out in defence of the character and claimed that although Udaybhan is the antagonist, he just happens to be on the wrong side and is not inherently wicked.
