His style of singing (with the characteristic breaking up of the matla into manymany short phrases) spawned many wannabesbut no one could come close to his voice and adaygi While a handful of the so-called ghazal connoisseurs comprehend the full wazan of the ghazal in all its intricaciesa great manyI suspectsimply sway to its sonorousness And when the singer is Mehdi Hassanpeople who can barely follow the full import of the poetrywhose Urdu vocabulary is uncertain and sheen qaf less sothe singer and the audience become one Why is this soI have often wondered Perhaps it has something to do with Mehdi Hassans voicewhich can transport you to a place where meaning becomes subservient to the magic of words This is not to belittle the importance of the poet If anythingMehdi Hassan was single-handedly responsible for introducing the work of many lesser-known poets to us in Indiasuch as Masroor Anwars hugely popular Mujhe tum nazar se gira to rahe ho or Anwar Mirzapuris Main nazar se pi raha hoon OrZindagi mein to sabhi pyar kiya karte hainYeh dhuan kahan se uthta haiShola tha jal bujha hoonPyar bhare do sharmile nain These ghazalsas it werebecame Mehdi Hassans In the case of the work of older poets such as MirMehdi Hassan can be credited with infusing new life into them Patta patta boota boota haal hamara jaane hai has been sung by many artistsyet none can match Mehdi Hassans inimitable style The same can be said of Bahadur Shah Zafars Baat karni mujhe mushkil kabhi aisi to na thee Runa Laila has sung thistoobut where her voice is brimful with delicious exuberance and vivacitythe chanchalta of a mountain brookMehdi Hassans is stately and majestic like the broad river that has descended to the plains Unfortunatelywe in India dont know Mehdi Hassans oeuvre in its entirety We dont know much about the playback songs he sang for the Pakistan film industryor those he recorded for the radioor the farsi kalam Due to the limitations of cross-border trafficwe are dependent on the goodwill of friends who cross the border or the pirated copies of popular CDs and tapes available in Indian shops This is possibly the only explanation why the older Mehdi Hassan numberssuch as Rafta rafta woh meri hasti ka saama ho gaye or Gulon mein rang bhare are more popular among Indian audiences than the equally enchanting but less anthologised numbers such as the Iqbal verses he sang for PTV Coming back to Ranjish hi sahifew would know that Mehdi Hassan inserted these ashaar by Talib Baghpati and sang them in such a seamless way that they seem part of the whole ghazal: Maanaa ke muhabbat ka chhupaanaa hai muhabbat/ Chupke se kisii roz jataane ke liye aa/ Jaise tujhe aate hain na aane ke bahaane/ Aise hii kisii roz na jaane ke liye aa The new breed of singers who have turned the ghazal into a pastiche of verses by doing a cut-and-paste job from different poets would do well to remember the maestros instinctive knowledge of metre and rhyme With Mehdi Hassan

has also written a letter to the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) demanding that the movie be shown to a committee of expert historians for scrutiny "I have written a letter to the chief minister demanding a ban on the movie if it distorted historical facts" the BJP leader said He said any "objectionable scenes" in the movie should be deleted before its release is allowed Rawal said he has written to the CBFC to cancel the "certificate given to the movie" and that it be shown to a committee of expert historians File image of a protest against the film Padmavati News18 "Requesting the CBFC to immediately cancel the certificate given to the movie ‘Padmavati’ A committee comprising expert historians be allowed to watch the movie and edit the defamatory fantasies for the language

starring Deepika Padukone Shahid Kapoor and Ranveer Singh is based on Rajput queen Padmavati Amid rumours that there was a romantic dream sequence between Padmavati and Alauddin Khilji’s characters various Rajput and other groups have been protesting against the film alleging it "distorts" history and hurts the sentiments of the people Historians are however divided on whether Rani Padmavati even existed Rawal said actor Ranveer Singh should not have played the character of Delhi sultan Alauddin Khalji in the movie "He (Ranveer Singh) should have thought what role is he playing" he said

Pradesh Rajasthan Uttar Pradesh— all BJP ruled states— and Punjab ruled by the Congress have already opposed the release of the movie Chennai: With five chief ministers in the last five decades from the movie world the way to the political power in Tamil Nadu is through building up star power Five of the state’s chief ministers – CN Annadurai M Karunanidhi MG Ramachandran (MGR) Janaki Ramachandran and J Jayalalitha – had their roots in films while several other actors showed an interest in politics In the May 2016 assembly elections there are three chief ministerial candidiates — incumbent JJayalalithaa of the AIADMK DMK president M Karunanidhi and DMDK founder AVijayakanth — all with a background of Tamil film industry Apart from these three the state has seen and is still seeing several actor-turned-politicians like the late Sivaji Ganesan R Sarathkumar T Rajendar and M Karthik who have floated their own parties There are several other actors like R Ramarajan Vagai Chandrasekhar Napoleon Kushboo CR Saraswathi Anantharaaj and others who have joined the AIADMK DMK and Congress While Annadurai and Karunanidhi were involved in writing the story screenplay and dialogues of movies it was MGR who became the first actor-turned-chief minister Founder of the ADMK that later became the AIADMK MGR showed the world the route to political power is also through his star power pull Movie actor NT Rama Rao also proved that in Andhra Pradesh by floating the Telugu Desam Party and capturing the chief minister’s post Prior to floating the ADMK in 1972 MGR was with the DMK which used his star power to capture political power Movies starring MGR subtly promoted the DMK through songs and dialogues But then a power struggle erupted in the DMK after Karunanidhi started projecting his first son MK Muthu in a big way Expelled from the DMK MGR fought back by successfully converting his huge fan base and fan clubs into a political party the AIADMK Since then this is the route being followed by other actor-turned-politicians With his carefully cultivated movie image of being poor-friendly and without any vices like drinking or smoking MGR soon became the darling of the people The AIADMK not only ousted the DMK from power in 1977 but also kept it in the wilderness till MGR’s demise in 1987 After MGR’s death his wife Janaki Ramachandran also an actor became chief minister for a very brief period before governor’s rule was imposed A power struggle between Janaki Ramachandran and Jayalalithaa — who was introduced to politics by MGR and also starred in several movies with him — saw the AIADMK breaking into two Subsequently the two factions merged under Jayalalithaa’s leadership and AIADMK captured back power in 1991 Since then Jayalalithaa remains the undisputed leader of the AIADMK In 2005 Vijayakanth 63 an action hero known to perform stunts in movies without a duplicate floated his DMDK party as an alternative to the two dominant Dravidian parties — the AIADMK and the DMK When he fought the polls alone without aligning with any party the DMDK notched up an impressive vote share better than even the established MDMK and PMK As the DMDK’s vote share can add muscle to any alliance he is one of the most sought alliance partner by all opposition parties BJP included Called "Karuppu (Black) MGR" or Captain after his movie "Captain Prabhakaran" Vijayakanth has acted in over 150 Tamil movies Though he was never the No1 hero he charted his own style in the movie world — a fighter vanquishing terrorists and bad guys But then that’s what politics is all about — vanquishing your opponents IANS Tennis chiefs explained the delay in making a decision on a possible suspension on having to wait for a tranlsation of the
