Iconic Hollywood Billboard Removed After Showing Support For Black Lives Matter! Trending News in India

If you’re one of the tens of thousands of Los Angeles-area residents who have driven down Sunset Boulevard in the last month, you’ve no doubt seen the towering 100-foot FAME by Sheeraz billboard hovering overhead.

The stupendous sign steals eye balls from AppleDisneyNetflix, and HBO billboards all on the same block, and is the genius work of a brand architect and celebrity culture mastermind named Sheeraz Hasan. Except now, things have changed, and the billboard is coming down after showing its support for Black Lives Matter. Wait, what?!

Amid the ongoing nationwide protests surrounding police brutality, racial injustice, and the BLM movement, Hasan decided to use his platform to show support for the activists. And so, days ago, he put up a new skin on his iconic billboard, covering up his business interests with the simple yet powerful message: Black Lives Matter!!!

The Hollywood expert and successful entrepreneur shared an inspiring message about his decision to promote the movement using his space, saying (below):

“My mother taught me one thing, your life is a gift from God. What you do with it is your gift back! God has given me a platform in Hollywood with Fame by Sheeraz and I’m going to use it. So I turned the biggest and best billboard on Sunset Blvd to send a loud message that ‘BLACK LIVES MATTER.’”

Amen to that!

The marketing and media guru added more about his motivations with the message, noting how possible political and business backlash doesn’t matter — all that is secondary to the fight for racial and social justice:

“Make no mistake, in today’s climate any message you say about a politically trending topic will cause backlash. But this doesn’t matter. All that matters in this moment are black lives and making sure they know they are not alone and they are heard.”

Well said, and very true!!

Of course, there have been high-profile peaceful protests up and down Sunset at Hasan’s Doheny Drive billboard location, as well as across iconic street corners and parks throughout the Hollywood area and greater Los Angeles for more than a full week now. With that, the updated skin supporting the BLM movement seemed like the perfect addition to such a visible, memorable location.

Even high-profile Hollywood stars took note, such as Lindsay Lohan, who tweeted about the billboard over the weekend when she first came across the new, updated version:

Love it!!! Talk about can’t miss!!!

The billboard has gotten so much attention for its new BLM addition, though, that site owners are insistent on bringing it down, apparently concerned about the message its sending and the political implications.

Nooooo!

Here’s to promoting peace, love, and unity — no matter the business consequences! Great job, Sheeraz!!!

“Very much in the country,” says Arjun Rampal busting fake news of him leaving the country after NCB summons : Trending News in India Trending News in India

Over a week ago actor Arjun Rampal was summoned by the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB ) for the second time. After he was issued a summon, he requested the agency to grant him a week’s time before he appears before the officers. While seeking for some extra time, the actor cited personal reasons.

Recently there were reports doing the rounds that suggested that Rampal had left the country after seeking for extra time. On Saturday, he took to his Twitter handle to clarify that he is very much in the country and is busy with his professional commitments. “Very much in the country, in fact just doing promotions for #nailpolish I guess some news channels have become travel agents.. lol #FakeNews,” he wrote.

Arjun Rampal was first summoned by the NCB in November after they conducted a raid at his place. Although a few drugs were recovered from his place, they had a proper prescription in place for the same and he was given a clean chit for them.

Rampal was questioned by the agency for seven hours on November 13. He was interrogated after his Australian friend Paul Bartel was arrested in a drug-related case. Reportedly, Bartel was in contact with Arjun Rampal’s partner Gabriella Demetriades brother Agisialos Demetriades. Meanwhile, Agisialos who was arrested in October was granted bail on Tuesday by a special narcotics court.

Scoop: Ranveer Singh, Deepika Padukone drop in on Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Gangubai Kathiawadi set to celebrate 5 years of Bajirao Mastani : Trending News in India Trending News in India

On the night of December 18, Sanjay Leela Bhansali had surprise visitors. Bollywood’s most adored couple Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone dropped unannounced to celebrate five years of Bajirao Mastani.


For those who came in late, Bajirao Mastani was a turning point for both Deepika and Ranveer. Their careers went to another level after this film. Hence, it was no surprise that they remembered their Bajirao Mastani director on the day when the blockbuster historical
celebrated five years since release.

Says an eyewitness, “Sanjay had no idea that they were going to show up. In fact, he was so busy shooting Gangubai Kathiawadi that when they did show up one set at Film City. He was completety taken aback. Sanjay met Ranveer and Deepika for the first time since the lockdown. They met warmly, though no hugs. Just smiles.”

A cake was brought on the set to celebrate the occasion. Ranveer ans Deepika were in their element. They spent a good hour on the set with their favourite director (with whom they have done three films) before waving a reluctant goodbye.
