Harold Ramis Dies At 69

By Aglaia Staff

Acclaimed filmmaker Harold Ramis has died at the age of 69.

It is understood that the writer, director and actor, best known for his work on hit comedies such as Caddyshack, Club Paradise and Groundhog Day, died at 12.53am this morning. He also co-wrote and starred in Ghostbusters and Ghostbusters II, playing the bookish ghost-hunter Egon Spengler.

t has been reported that he died from complications of autoimmune inflammatory vasculitis, a rare disease that affects the blood vessels. Ramis was diagnosed with the disease in 2010.

In a statement, his family said: “His creativity, compassion, intelligence, humour and spirit will be missed by all who knew and loved him.”

During his 45-year career, the Chicago-born Ramis worked with a number of leading actors, including Bill Murray in army comedy Stripes, Dan Aykroyd in Ghostbusters and Chevy Chase in Ramis’ directorial debut, Caddyshack.

In 1997, he played Dr Martin Bettes alongside Jack Nicholson in the Oscar-winning film As Good as It Gets, directed by James L Brooks, and in 1999 he directed Robert De Niro in the gangster comedy, Analyze This.

Ramis told the Wall Street Journal in 2009: “My early movies were all about individuals against institutions, and empowering the underdogs. I always thought of our characters as smart rebels, as opposed to losers.”

Described by film producer Brian Glazer as “the father of the modern Hollywood comedy”, Ramis was inducted into the St Louis Walk of Fame in 2004 and was the recipient of the Austin Film Festival’s Distinguished Screenwriter Award in 2005.

The last film he directed was historical comedy Year One, starring Jack Black and Michael Cera, which was released in 2009.

Salman Khan And The Saifai Mahotsav

By Aglaia Staff

Social media is abuzz with criticism for actors Salman Khan and Madhuri Dixit for agreeing to be a part of the opulent Saifai Festival in Uttar Pradesh at a time when the state government is facing major criticism from all quarters for shutting down relief camps for riot victims in Muzaffarnagar

The SP government, according to this report, spent around Rs 20 crore to make this ostentatious event a success. Special flights were chartered from Mumbai and Delhi for the event and a very star- struck SP government regaled as Madhuri Dixit, Salman Khan, Mallika Sherwat and a few Bollywood starlets performed at 5 hour long event in the sleepy town of Saifai.

While the SP government has received a lot of criticism for the event, many on Twitter also criticized A-list stars Salman Khan and Madhuri Dixit for agreeing to be a part of the show. Many stated that as a superstar, with a huge fan following, Salman shouldn’t have agreed to be a part of the show to show solidarity to riot victims. Many even started a hashtag (#BoycottJaiHo) demanding a ban on Salman’s film which is scheduled to release in theatres later this month.

The festival, which is in its 15th year, has in the past seen top Bollywood celebrities performing each year at the event which reportedly celebrates and promotes art and culture. Of course, in the garb of promoting folk artists, every year SP spends crores of rupees on Bollywood stars who perform for 2500 odd people.

Paul Walker Faked His Death?

By Aglaia Staff

Paul Walker faked his own death? Fans are upset by the latest claim on a conspiracy site.

The report on nodisinfo.com, which is tagged “other hoaxes” and “Zionist terror,” claims that “it is not absolutely confirmed” that Walker and Roger Rodas, who was driving the car that crashed, both faked their deaths.

“This hoax was achieved with collaboration of the entire crew and production team of the Fast & Furious cabal in collaboration with Universal Studios,” the report claims.

As with many conspiracy articles, the site uses a collection of blurry images and suppositions to build the case in the report that Walker did fake his death.

However, Walker died on November 30 in a fiery car crash that also killed Rodas, his friend and business partner.

Since the death, there has been speculation that Walker and Rodas were murdered on similar conspiracy websites.

There have also been some death hoaxes, trying to get people to download videos infected with viruses and the like.

Walker’s family is still in mourning from the sudden death of the 40-year-old, including his daughter Meadow. Jasmine Pilchard-Gosnell, his girlfriend of seven years, has also been mourning.

Fans of Walker were not pleased with the report.

“Why would they fake their death to begin with? What is to gain? You’ve presented all of this ‘evidence’ of a faked death and have failed to answer WHY they would even do so to begin with,” commented one. “You’ve just plain failed. Have a little RESPECT for the dead and their loved ones by shutting up and ceasing to spread your moronic views and distracting them from mourning.”

Another commentor added: “Paul Walker is gone people just can’t leave him rest in peace there’s always gotten be a rumor going on …until I see proof otherwise I don’t believe it.”

Others posted on Twitter.

“Why would Paul Walker fake his own death?! Let the dead rest in peace!” said Priscilla Brady.

“Paul Walker didn’t fake his death,” added Sean Donnelly. “People believe everything they read and take it for the truth. Have some respect for his family.”

The website the report is on also claims the Boston Marathon bombing was a hoax, as well as the shooting at Sandy Hook.
