Twitter was flooded with posts for Charlie Chaplin’s birth anniversary on Friday. Many shared clips of his movie performances. Some wrote that there would not be a better artist ever.
Charles Spencer Chaplin was born in London in 1889. His father, Charles Chaplin Sr, was a vocalist and actor, and his mother Hannah Chaplin was a singer-actor who worked in the light opera. She was also known by her stage name, Lily Harley. Charlie Chaplin and his brother Sydney Chaplin were left to fend for themselves after their father’s early death, and mother’s unsuccessful career as well as her illness.
Meanwhile, Kangana has completed her ambitious biopic, Thalaivi. Based on the life of former Tamil Nadu chief minister J Jayalalithaa, the film was slated for a theatrical release this month. However, it had to be postponed in wake of the recent surge in coronavirus cases. She also has two action films – Tejas and Dhaakad in the pipeline.
