Sex-queen Sapna files complaint against Mahesh Bhatt and Veena Malik?

Sex-queen and B-grade empress Sapna today filed a non-cognizable complaint at the Amboli Police Station in suburban Mumbai (NC No 1208 / 2012) u/s 507 of the Indian Penal Code against some unknown persons allegedly claiming to act for and on behalf of Mahesh Bhatt and Veena Malik. The callers allegedly threatened her with serious bodily harm besides abusing her and her family on two occasions in the last 24 hours for speaking out against Mahesh Bhatt and Veena Malik.

In an interview to a local publication, Sapna had said that Mahesh Bhatt is a porn director and Veena Malik should be sent back to Pakistan. “Veena Malik should try supporting homosexuals and prostitutes in Pakistan instead of trying out these publicity stunts in Mumbai,” is what Sapna said in her interview. She had also alleged that Mahest Bhatt is promoting pornography in India which is a crime.

Sex queen Sapna who has done about 300 films over the last 16 years is also in the news for her nude scenes in the film “No 1 Dirty Heroine Sapna”. Says Sapna, “I want to show people like Mahesh Bhatt saab, Poonam Pandey, Veena Malik and Sunny Leone what real sex appeal is all about. Bhatt saab has imported a porn actress Sunny Leone for his film when I have been doing hot sex scenes for the last several years.”

The empress of sex and seduction and the Queen of all B-grade films in India Sapna will be soon seen in a film titled “The Dirty Heroine” which is inspired and a remake of the film The Dirty Picture. Sapna who has acted in over 300 B and C grade films is also a producer and will be co-producing the film under her own banner SRK Films.

Sapna lashed out at other girls in the film industry. Speaking exclusively to http://futuristicmedianetwork.wordpress.com, she said, “There are only buffaloes and cows (saands and bhaisain) today in the film industry. I have done over 300 films in the last 20 years and I am still shooting every day. The other girls only sleep around to get work,” she lamented saying that girls in the industry are very much to blame for the casting couch.

“Most girls in the film industry are only good at bed work. They have no understanding of camera work, dance and acting. Girls like Poonam Pandey, Rozlyn Khan, Veena Malik and others who cannot act, are making money by circulating fake nude photographs in the media. Most girls are only capable of bed work,” she said referring to the casting couch that is all prevalent in the industry.

Sapna will start shooting for the film The Dirty Heroine in a few days which is partly based on her own true life story as the queen of sex, sleaze and seduction. Sapna’s film clips from her film “Angoor” were also included in the award-winning Anurag Kashyap-Ronnie Screwvalla starrer Udaan which achieved great critical acclaim and several international awards.

Hitman Hashmi silences critics, walks away with stellar reviews

As the political thriller Shanghai released yesterday ,Emraan Hashmi who was popularly touted as the “hero of the masses” has proved his detractors wrong and walked away with stellar reviews for his performance in the film –

All praise for the star says acclaimed critic and trade analyst Taran Adarsh “It’s a new Emraan that you witness here in Shanghai [paunch, blackened/stained teeth], which is in sharp contrast to his on-screen romantic representation. Influenced by Dibakar’s thought process, Emraan takes the plunge and wholly submits to the director’s visualization. This is a defining moment in his career and I am sure, even Emraan must’ve rediscovered himself in this variety of film-making”

Adds critic Rajeev Masand “Emraan Hashmi he steals the flms as the gauche, stain-toothed pornographer with a selfless heart. It’s easily the film’s most winning performance, and Hashmi doesn’t once miss the mark”.

Says critic Karan Anshuman,Mumbai Mirror “Hashmi’s personification of the hoi polloi has so many facets, his character Jogi might be one of the most layered we’ve seen in a while. Hashmi who steals the show with his stained teeth, smalltown mannerisms, and big heart. It’s the defining performance of his career.”

Says critic Raja Sen “Emraan delivers a knockout punch as he masters a complicated role- From his infuriatingly goofy laugh to poor attempts at making conversation, Hashmi proves himself the best of a very fine ensemble. It’s a throwaway grunt but Hashmi nails it – “

With biggies like Dibaker Banerjee, Karan Johar,Ekta Kapoor and Mahest Bhatt vouching for his acting prowess not to mention star pull, the actor is well on his way to join the big league of intellectual actors with his latest choice of films starting with Shanghai.

Says Aniruddha Guha, DNA “Emraan Hashmi’s big shot at winning over that audience which doesn’t think much of his bad-guy-who-makes-out-with-the-pretty-girls roles. As Jogi Parmar, Hashmi is stripped of charm, the stained teeth and paunch making him a lot less appealing. The actor, thankfully, goes beyond the exterior aspects of his character and shines as the vulnerable Jogi. The transformation is indeed commendable; and Shanghai could do for Hashmi what Omkara did for Saif Ali Khan.”

Adds Madhureeta Mukherjee, “Finally, Emraan Hashmi has let go. Also of hot scenes, hot babes and Himesh-isms. Dibakar can take a bow for that. With crude body language, a pot belly, stained teeth and mawali moves, he perfectly looks the part and pulls off an act he should be proud of.”

Says critic and talk show host Anupama Chopra “Hashmi’s days of being dismissed as a ‘kissy boy’ are clearly over. Joginder’s cheerfully cheesy world falls apart in a heartbeat. Hashmi imbues him with a startling innocence and even nobility.”

Playing Joginder a small time criminal, a man living on the margins of society,Emraan Hashmi even caught the industry’s attention ,with praise coming his way on the social media front –

Tweeted director Mahesh Bhatt “The rise and the rise of Emraan Hashmi. Emraan is brilliant in SHANGHAI. Even the highbrows have embraced his performance.”

“In my opinion Emraan Hashmi is the actor to look out for. There is an edge to him that makes him so special.” mentioned ad-man,producer Pritish Nandy.
