slammed rumours making the rounds that he is going ahead and making a film on the life of Indian Premier League (IPL) Commissioner Lalit Modi Though these rumours had started close to six months back (around the release of Jail)they had died their natural death with the filmmaker coming up with an instant denial Howevernow with more spice added to the entire affair courtesy the current situation that Modi and ex-Minister Shashi Tharoor have found themselves inthere was a buzz in the industry (yet again) that Bhandarkar may well begin work on the script and revive the film shortly Says a well placed industry source who has been closely following the progress of the entire episode surrounding the film (which supposedly also carries the title The Commissioner)”At one point in timethis film was a definite possibility since Lalit Modi was already in talks with Shailendra Singh from Percept In fact Singh had also suggested the name of Madhur and there were talks of a big star being roped in to play Modi HoweverMadhur never showed any interest since he was busy working on a couple of other scripts and wanted them to come on floors He is surprised that tongues have started wagging all over again even though he had made his stand clear long time back” Welltongues had started wagging because of a very important development There is confirmed news around Madhur’s production house Bhandarkar Entertainment going ahead and registering titles like Cricket Politics aur Cheergirls and Cricket Politics and Models No wonderbuzz was bound to become stronger as content of both the titles come quite close to what’s actually happening in the life of Modi “Registering a title doesn’t equate to a film being made”says a senior associate from Bhandarkar Entertainment”These are mere insinuations and that’s about it” What does the man of the momentMadhur Bhandarkarhave to say about the entire episode “Wellfor the recordlet me state once for and all that I am not making any film on

(Illustration: Mithun Chakraborty) Related News The night before June 3 had been particularly rough for London but the scene at Platform 9 at King’s Cross station was perfectly normal thank you very much And while attacks at the London Bridge and Borough Market were still fresh on everybody’s minds the Muggles and No-Majs outside the Harry Potter shop the next day were the last people you would expect to cower in fear and apprehension because they just didn’t hold with such nonsense — not when they were so close to magic Business inside the store was booming as children and adults alike held wands hoping the plastic facsimiles would warm to their touch and choose their owners (oh how Ollivander would have sniggered); school supplies such as quills and Time-Turner necklaces were purchased in bulk to tide them over the upcoming school year I was tempted to throw the Dobby toy my smelly sock but thought against it After all he doesn’t need to be free he’s home at last Standing inside the crowded shop that felt like we were in Diagon Alley so was I In 2000 I had read the first three books in a state close to Petrificus Totalus an almost complete body bind where only my hands moved to turn the pages And to think that the first book was nearly not published In 1996 Joanne Rowling’s agents sent the first 200 pages of her manuscript to 12 publishers — each of them rejected it except HarperCollins who showed interest but were too slow in following up Legend has it that the only reason Bloomsbury signed Rowling was because of Alice Newton the eight-year-old daughter of their chairman who demanded the second chapter after reading the first Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone was published on June 26 1997 but only after Bloomsbury asked Rowling to put her initials instead of her first name — their research had shown that boys were unlikely to read books by women authors (hmph) The Philosopher’s Stone swept up several major children’s books awards in Britain but it wasn’t before Harry Potter and The Goblet of Fire (2000) that the series became a global publishing phenomenon Is Harry Potter an original story No not really The character of the orphan protagonist is as old as the novel form; Rowling cites JRR Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings trilogy and CS Lewis’s seven-part fantasy series The Chronicles of Narnia as her influences There are far too many similarities between Tolkien’s work and the Harry Potter series but Rowling makes magic her own simply by setting them in the present age The events of Narnia too ran parallel to the actual timeline in the 1940s but Rowling’s achievement lies in making Hogwarts a world within our own a world within reach One may argue that fantasy fiction’s greatest friendship is the one between Frodo Baggins and Samwise Gamgee — and they won’t be wrong But Rowling’s characters develop multiple enduring friendships outside of their comfort zone outside of their own kind; embracing differences without sweeping them aside with a broomstick; and most of all more than any fantasy series in the modern age Rowling offers each and every one of her characters a chance at redemption “It is our choices Harry that show what we truly are far more than our abilities” says Albus Dumbledore in The Chamber of Secrets (1998) Sirius Black would echo that sentiment in The Order of the Phoenix (2003): “We’ve all got both light and dark inside us What matters is the part we choose to act on That’s who we really are” These sound like platitudes but as in the post-truth post-Trump Brexit world these oft-quoted dialogues from the books and films offer much comfort to those who seek it At any given point in time we have all been one (or even more) of the characters of Rowling’s world Honestly Harry Potter is the least interesting character and the books would be nothing without Dumbledore Sirius Black Luna Lovegood Rubeus Hagrid Remus Lupin and even Bellatrix Lestrange and He-Who-Has-No-Nose Voldemort But who would Harry be without one of the greatest feminist heroines of our age Hermione Granger She set the bar high for Rowling’s young readers — she was the one who used her intelligence without apologising for it; who punched Draco Malfoy “like a girl” (which is more than anybody else had done till then); who fought for better pay for house-elves; and who chose to love Ron Weasley because she knew what she prized in a partner all those think-pieces be damned As for Ron what can I say I was like him all through high school and I still think he made us fools look good Back at the shop multiple coloured editions celebrating the 20th anniversary of The Philosopher’s Stone are stacked high but it is time for me to leave so that my friend who has patiently been watching our bags can browse I clutch the Marauder’s Map that I have bought close to my chest and watch scores of fans pose with the trolley that has half-disappeared into the barrier The mood in London had been sombre since the news of the attacks broke but there was only unbridled joy here When she came out of the shop my friend and fellow Potterhead gave me the one thing I’d forgotten to purchase inside — the
