in a leaner avatar The 41-year-old soccer enthusiast who is currently 92 kgs will transform himself to play the former skipper of Mohun Bagan in the Shoojit Sircar-directed period drama “I have no release this year I am choosing my projects carefully and experimenting with my looks Each role requires a lot of method and I need time to adopt I am playing a footballer in 1911 and for the film I have to become 75 kgs by mid next year after ending a film Now I am 92 I really have to work hard on my body” John told PTI in an interview Apart from ‘1911’ John will also be seen in three different looks in Sanjay Gupta’s ‘Mumbai Saga’ “Sanjay is very experimental with his films and looks This is the third time I am teaming up with him after ‘Zinda’ and ‘Shootout at Wadala’” said John who was in the city for the launch of a new branch of Toni & Guy saloon at South Extension “Shooting for ‘Mumbai Saga’ will start from November and in the film I will be seen in three different looks as it shows the three stages of a person’s life It is one of the breathtaking scripts I have read in a long time” John said John however admits that it is physically taxing for an actor to go through weight changes for films “It affects your body immensely But I am bit lucky in this case because I am actually an ectomorph I have a tendency to lose weight I just need to get into a proper diet” he said The ‘Madras Cafe’ star has wrapped up shooting his multi starrer comic venture ‘Welcome Back’ a sequel to the hit 2007 film ‘Welcome’ that starred Akshay Kumar in the lead “Akshay is a good friend and brilliant actor We worked together in many films I enjoy watching his films and I liked ‘Welcome’ too Shooting for ‘Welcome Back’ was fun as well as a learning experience It has an ensemble starcast of Naseeruddin Shah Paresh Rawal and Nana Patekar among others It was good to work with such senior actors” he said John who is often touted as a style icon said physical fitness is important to look good “Gym is like a religion to me I go to gym the way people go to church When I was growing up there were no actors whom I could look upto because they were larger than life When I decided to become an actor I wanted to be stylish and concentrate on my fitness first” he said For all the latest Entertainment News download Indian Express App More Related NewsWritten by Shalini Langer | New Delhi |

Gyllenhaal Rene Russo Riz Ahmed Stars 35 WE first see Lou Bloom (Gyllenhaal) in the headlights of an approaching car his eyes shining in a dark sunken face a dog more than a wolf a creature more of this world than that but just We first hear Lou talk really talk inside the office of a construction supervisor –to whom he has sold some stolen metal scrap –his lips stretched in a wide smile as he delivers too-glib talks on why he is a good employee to hire “A foot in the door” –that’s all he wants he says However it’s quite clear from the beginning that Lou would hardly be satisfied with “a foot” He hungers for more and true to his manner slinks in and settles inside the moment the first door presents itself It’s evident what Gilroy is aiming with for what lies on the other side of that door Lou finds his break as a freelance cameramen among the pack of “nighcrawlers” stalking the streets of Los Angeles for a bloody crime or accident that makes for footage that can be sold to local television stations That’s a beast seeking to be fed too and like Lou it is never sated Lou is meant to be the Travis Bickle holding the mirror to society that wants its news delivered in big bold labels of ‘Horror House’ or ‘Terror in Neighbourhood’ but is only too happy to be horrified or terrified every night Gilroy loses no opportunity to underline that particularly in the form of ageing news director Nina (Russo very good) who desperate for TV eyeballs is willing to ignore Lou’s questionable tactics Her idea of a good footage: “A woman running down a street her throat slit” Preferably a white woman preferably a rich street If Faye Dunaway of Network comes to mind that’s deliberate However ‘Nightcrawler’ is no ‘Taxi Driver’ and Lou while a reflection of our full and empty times isn’t really a product of it There’s something clearly unhinged about him and it comes from deep within rather than anything outside Still Gyllenhaal does a marvellous turn as the guy sitting in day in day out alone at home ingesting all kinds of information from the Net emptying everything else out carefully ironing his one good shirt He wears a disarming smile and a loud laugh and yet barely hidden contempt bubbles just underneath It’s also doubtful that in this day and age of in-your-face citizens with their phone cameras Lou would attract both such value for or such hand-wringing over his “expertise” Or that police can’t join the dots to where Lou crosses the line from filming a crime scene to staging it The question is are you willing to bet on either For all the latest

that is aiming to bring football’s main event back to the United States for the first time in more than 30 years The Moroccan Football Federation released a two-sentence statement confirming its intention to bid The announcement came on deadline day for countries to express their interest in hosting in 2026 The United States Canada and Mexico launched a joint bid in April and had hoped to be awarded the 2026 World Cup unchallenged But FIFA decided to keep the contest open and Morocco said it had met Friday’s deadline Morocco had officially launched its bid and sent documents to FIFA the Moroccan soccer federation said in its brief statement The 2026 World Cup is only open to bids from the Americas Africa and Oceania with Europe and Asia ineligible because those continents will host the next two World Cups _ in Russia in 2018 and in Qatar in 2022 The 2026 host will be decided in 2020 If successful the US-Canada-Mexico bid would see the World Cup return to the United States for

World Cup will also see the tournament expanded from 32 to 48 teams providing an even bigger challenge for the host Morocco’s bid may be undermined by the fact that it backed out of its last major

February 11 2015 4:45 am AAP supporters celebrate the party’s victory in the Delhi Assembly polls in Dadar on Tuesday (Source: Express Photo by Ganesh Shirsekar) Related News This election is history and now begins the campaign to understand it — for the AAP the BJP their well-wishers and armchair analysts (like myself) The key to the analysis is that it should not be circular or tautological that is it happened because it happened And most importantly this analysis should be able to explain or at least be consistent with the resounding defeat of the AAP and the victory of Narendra Modi just eight months ago — and the complete reversal today Indeed the AAP has done one better than the BJP It has won 67 out of 70 seats; the BJP won “only” 60 of these same 70 assembly constituencies in the Lok Sabha (LS) elections of 2014 One popular opinion among experts is the refrain that as is well known from opinion polls and surveys the Delhi voter had long ago decided that they would vote for Modi at the national level and for Arvind Kejriwal at the state level The only problem with this internally consistent explanation is that one would have to ask why Delhi is so different from Maharashtra Haryana (right next door and with a lot of the same “voters”) Jharkhand and Jammu and Kashmir Delhi might be the capital and quirkily different but it is not unique If it is it will be a sad blow to theambitions and hopes of the AAP to go at least partly national One other popular explanation is that the election proves there is a steep class divide in Delhi that is the poor voted for the AAP and the middle class and the rich voted for the BJP This hypothesis is false on so many counts that it is difficult to know where to begin For beginners the AAP has won nearly 100 per cent of the seats across all three income classes — low medium and high as defined by Cicero/ Headlines Today Second the AAP scored a 100 per cent knock-out only in the high-income category Third the poor in Delhi according to the Tendulkar “absolute poor” definition (around Rs 90000 per year for a family of five in February 2015 prices) constitute less than 10 per cent of the population For an income level 50 per cent higher (Rs 135 lakh per year) the poor are 25 per cent of the population So let us forget the notion that class war was an explanation let alone an important explanation And while we are at it let us also forget that caste considerations mattered Even if class and caste are strongly correlated as some claim if income did not matter how come caste did Finally let us reject the hypothesis that what explains this historic election is the non-support of the rank and file of the BJP or the famed political prowess of the RSS workers (this rank and file has not won a Delhi election in more than 20 years) or their non-acceptance of Kiran Bedi as an interloper or the sheer political ineptitude of Bedi To be sure all of these things mattered and they chipped away at BJP seats but really the story would be no different if the AAP had obtained “only” 55 seats Because what has happened in the Delhi election 2015 purely and simply is history The table lists the 10 biggest wins and losses in assembly elections countrywide in 21 big states since the coalition era began post the 1989 VP Singh election Obviously there have been more elections but the criteria limit our selection to only those assembly elections held within one year of the preceding Lok Sabha election (a total of 29 elections) The highest win/ loss is the 2015 AAP victory in Delhi (a swing of plus 214 per cent); the second highest was the loss by the BJP in Haryana in 2000 — a swing of minus 203 per cent Okay we agree on what does not explain history — but what does The story about explaining this election has just begun both by me and other self-styled experts My partial but not small interpretation of what happened proceeds as follows First the conclusion Just eight months ago Modi had pulled off one of the most stunning victories ever His platform and appeal was the delivery of both economic growth and governance He has delivered on economic growth on several fronts — and I am not basing this conclusion on the new GDP data A lot of initiatives and initial steps towards a reformed economy have already been taken and Budget 2015 is likely to take this process considerably ahead But where Modi has failed is in providing political governance Ever since May 2014 India has been subjected to a barrage of actions oriented towards the encouragement of social disharmony The list is long but here are some examples “Love jihad” or attempts to interfere with the private lives of young Indians; the non-discouragement of honour killings in the name of caste; ghar wapsi or attempts to go against the basic tenets of Hinduism in aggressively pursuing proselytisation; the initiative to make the learning of a dead language like Sanskrit compulsory as one of three “compulsory” languages; the continuous attempts to make the lives of minorities even more insecure (burning of churches in Delhi especially a city going to polls); the non-condemnation and non-removal of a minister stating that those who were not Hindus were “haramzade”; the tolerance of statements that Hindu women should have four kids in order to boost even more the 80 per cent-plus Hindu population; the continuous pursuit from high-level officials about India being a Hindu nation and the attempt to revive the building of a Ram temple in Ayodhya; the tolerance of a BJP-appointed censor board official Ashoke Pandit who attempted to censor humour and free speech by being even more vulgar and in a non-joke way than anything that the AIB could ever say let alone said (Congratulations guys but I am disappointed by the fact that you are apologising for hurting “sentiments”); and the wearing of an expensive Rs 10 lakh or whatever embroidered suit for the meeting with US President Barack Obama For the quarter of Delhi’s households which live on less than Rs 14 lakh a year that is seven years of food shelter and well-being These tendencies towards social disharmony have been condemned by many including supporters of Modi Jagdish Bhagwati and well-wishers like Obama This all adds to the anger of the middle class and the rich — in addition to the anger of the poor What happens next I think the Delhi election will turn out to be a win-win election for India Delhi Modi and Kejriwal The Delhi wake-up call is likely to considerably improve governance under Modi — and improve the chances for economic reforms and growth initiatives Modi is one of the most astute politicians the world has seen and he is likely to see what he needs to do in order to achieve his goal everyone’s goal of a free and prosperous India Equally Kejriwal knows that he now has to deliver on governance by actually governing With the great mandates that both Modi and Kejriwal won come great expectations — and not meeting those expectations even halfway bring about greater disappointments The Delhi lesson for Modi is that he should not see the AAP’s victory as having relevance for only Delhi And the lesson for Kejriwal (as well as the AAP) is thathe should not see the Delhi election as having meaning beyond Delhi Bhalla is chairman of Oxus Investments an emerging market
