Korean pop soloist Kang Daniel is back and how! After releasing two EP’s ‘Cyan’ and ‘Magenta’, he has dropped his third mini-album ‘Yellow’ along with the music video of the lead track ‘Antidote’.
Taking his third chapter in the colour series ahead with ‘Yellow’, Kang Daniel is trying to explore the complex feelings of contraction, paranoia, hope, and courage. Through the music video of ‘Antidote, this new chapter represents a new start as Kang Daniel tries to escape the pain and the incompleteness. “A night trapped in a cold silence / The shadow behind the room / Without time to breathe / A trap that tightens me, oh-oh, oh, oh / I try to run, I tried to run away / When you bother me without a sound / I’m afraid to even breathe / Can’t take no more, oh-oh,” he is trying to find something that doesn’t even exist as he trapped in these feelings of contradiction.
The song has rock-like elements and is combined with Alternative R&B. It uses minimal soundscape but has a mix of guitar riff, 808 bass drum, melody rodos piano, and powerful electric guitar sound harmonize.
‘Antidote’ has been penned by Kang Daniel, JQ, Lee Yeonji, J14 and composed by Anthony Pavel, Jonathan Hoskins, MZMC.
Sanya Malhotra has been garnering tremendous love and appreciation from the audience for her recent release, Pagglait. The film showed the actress as a strong-headed woman, who didn’t budge to societal expectations and norms, which became an inspiration to many young women out there.

In a recent interview with a leading publication, Sanya revealed, “I am attracted to these characters. As an audience, I love watching such women on screen.” She further adds, “As an actor, I think somewhere it is my responsibility to inspire young women who are watching films.”
Over the past few years, Sanya has been playing roles, from which young women draw inspiration from. And being a director’s actor, Sanya has been able to meet the expectations of the audience with her impeccable performance in movies like, Badhaai Ho, Pataakha, Dangal and Shakuntala Devi.

Radhika Apte has donned many hats while portraying different roles for her films, now has taken up direction too. The actress released her directorial debut The Sleepwalkers’ trailer in the lockdown at Palms Spring International short film festival which won The Best Midnight Short award.
Making her directorial debut with the short-film titled The Sleepwalkers, the actress in a recent interview with a leading publication shared, “I had never thought of making films. There was no such plan. I just had the urge to write because sometimes you want to create content that challenges you. Roles that come your way are not necessarily from the space that you want them to come from. I just wanted to write something that interested me. There are things that I passionately want to do. When I bounced off the story to Honey Trehan and Abhishek Chaubey, they decided to make it. I had 10 days for the prep and shoot. When I finished writing, I realised I didn’t want to act in it, but I wanted to direct it. And, I absolutely loved the process.”
Fans of the actress cannot wait to witness the magic Radhika has created, this time being behind the lens. The trailer of her short-film has been showered with so much love and appreciation from the audiences.
Maaveeran Pillai is an upcoming Tamil film starring Vijayalakshmi Veerappan. If her name sounds familiar, it is because she’s the younger daughter of infamous sandalwood smuggler Veerappan, who was killed by Tamil Nadu Special Task Force officers in 2004. The film is directed and produced by KNR Raja under the banner of KNR films. The film also stars Lavinika, Radha Ravi and Raja among others. The film’s music director is Ravi Varma while its cinematography is done by Manjunath.
The film’s trailer has created quite a buzz as Vijayalakshmi can be seen standing dressed like her late father with a gun on her shoulder. However, there are no details on whether the film is a story on Veerappan’s life from his daughter’s perspective or something else entirely. While there have been several movies across different languages featuring the smuggler’s story, this is the first time a member of his family is involved in one.
