The Secret of making profit from flop movies:
Anurag Kashyap is a mediocre movie director whose last and only successful movie is remembered for the choicest expletives he inserted in it. The actress Tapsee Pannu is no different. She is relatively new comer and not a blockbuster by any standards. Yet both have their networth multiplied exponentially. For past three days incometax department is questioning them for sources of their income.
The Midas Touch of Wealth without SUCCESS.
The Income Tax Department had been monitoring these two for a long time. Their ever rising wealth has become a reason for raids especially the fact that it happened while their movies were constantly flopping. Two producers Vikas Bahl and Madhu Mantena have also similar track record. The IT department is searching the magical wand by which these people generate wealth.
Anurag Kashyap has been working in the film industry for almost 23 years. In the year 1998, he started his career as a story writer with the film ‘Satya’. After this, he became a director from the 1999 film ‘Last Train to Mahakali’ and a producer from the 2010 film Udaan.
In just 23 years, Kashyap has acquired assets worth about 806 crores. His films continued to flop, but the property has been growing faster rate at which his movies flopped.
It is very rare to find the government in a state acting in a manner which seems to be aligned with the drug mafia. But it is all too apparent in Maharashtra.
Many months ago I had pointed out that a war had broken out in Maharashtra between the central government and the drug lord named as DALDA in a fictional work. According to this fictional work the dalda is also a prominent politician. I’m not sure if this politician is from Maharashtra but the DALDA has tremendous influence over the Government of Maharashtra. Look at the recent sequence of events.
Today is third day of Arnab in prison. The arguments are continuing in Bombay High Court. Yes it is still called Bombay High Court and not Mumbai. The arguments today commenced at 12 noon and are still continuing. Conspiracy theories are being hurled on social media. But that is ignorance.
It was pointed out yesterday, that Arnab is pursuing habeas corpus petition before division bench of High Court seeking quashing of proceedings and by way of interim order he has sought interim bail.
If Arnab had sought regular bail, it was ten minute job. He would have been out by now. He could have filed the petition seeking quashing of proceedings later or simultaneously but he has chosen to sacrifice himself to press this petition.
Arnab Goswami was arrested yesterday morning by an encounter specialist of Mumbai Police. In the evening when he was produced before the Magistrate, he refused to extend police custody and remanded Arnab to Judicial Custody. Remember Police has no access to Prisons which is managed by a different Department of State Government.
Republic TV itself pronounced that his bail would be heard today at 3 PM and after hearing it has been announced court will resume hearing at 3 PM tomorrow when it will also consider the question of interim bail. It was also shown in the tracker that hearing was taking place a division bench of two learned judges of Bombay High Court. (The name has not been changed by the High Court so far.)
It appears from the web site of HIgh Court (https://bombayhighcourt.nic.in) that Arnab has not filed any petition for bail.
Maharashtra is making a new low in governance and has already hit bottom in upholding rule of law. When Police and Municipal Authorities act like hooligans of purpose rather than enforcers of law, it is anarchy written all over it.
Maharashtra’s inability to tackle Corona is old news.

Republic TV today stirred another sting at 10 am. This comes a the sting of Congress spokesperson Raghavendra Shukla, who affirmed that Maharashtra Government will ensure that republic tv is shut down.
Another sting by Republic TV:
Now the Republic TV has staged Nawab Malik, a minister in the Mahaghadi government of Maharashtra. He too is from Congress Party. In the sting, the Nawab is seen saying about the conspiracy against its owner Arnab Goswami.
