(@Arsenal) 4 March 2017 2203 hrs IST:Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp had said everyone at the Premier League club was playing for his future following Monday’s 3-1 loss by struggling champions Leicester City The Merseyside club who have managed just one win in 2017 have seen their title bid falter as they have dropped to fifth 14 points behind leaders Chelsea with 12 games remaining At Arsenal the issue of Arsene Wenger’s future continues to drag on into March with the Frenchman yet to confirm whether he will extend his 21-year stay beyond the end of the season The 67-year-old has announced he will make a decision with both his own and his club’s interests at heart “My preference is always to remain the same” he said “I’m not looking for jobs at other clubs I’m just focused on me getting to the next level and trying to improve “I’ve been here 20 years and I have had many chances to leave So I don’t have to convince you my preference is always Arsenal But of course I am objective and lucid enough to make the right decision for myself and the club as well” Both Arsenal and Liverpool would be going into the match breathing a bit easier due to results earlier on Saturday Manchester United were forced to a 1-1 draw against Bournemouth which means that both Liverpool and Arsenal stay in the positions they were last week going into this match Both sides have suffered from stuttering form in 2017 Liverpool will have to recover from the crushing 3-1 defeat at Leicester City last week while Arsenal have won two and lost three of their last five matches A win

Chatterjee that drove filmmaker Sujoy Ghosh to direct “Ahalya” a 14-minutes short thriller which has been getting rave reviews Related News It was his desire to work with the doyen of the Bengali film industry Soumitra Chatterjee that drove filmmaker Sujoy Ghosh to direct “Ahalya” a 14-minutes short thriller which has been getting rave reviews Ghosh’s Kolkata-set Bengali film has taken a page out of Hindu mythology in which Ahalya the wife of the sage Gautama Maharishi was seduced by Indra and cursed by her husband for infidelity The “Kahaani” helmer has given a modern twist to the story starring Radhika Apte and Tota Roy Chowdhury besides Soumitra “I am a big fan of Soumitra da I always wanted to work with him and not just as an actor but I wanted him as a hero in my film So that was one primary reason for me to do ‘Ahalya’ It does not mean that Tota and Radhika were not important but it is just that I always had this dream to collaborate with dada” Sujoy told PTI over phone from Kolkata “Ahalya” which released yesterday has already received more than three lakh views overnight and word-of-mouth is helping the film gain momentum Ghosh said only a “fearless” actor like Soumitra could have taken upon the challenge of doing this film and tackling the role of Goutam Sadhu an ageing artist who is married to a much younger woman “He was very excited about it It is also a new thing for him and he is fearless He is not afraid of taking up challenges Co-incidentally he was looking to work in a project like this so everything fell into place” the director said Share This Article Related Article “Ahalya” is a venture of Royal Stag Barrel Select Large Short Films For the beautiful and mysterious protagonist’s role of Ahalya Ghosh wanted someone who could look like a seductress without being too obvious about it and he found that in Radhika “I wanted someone who could play a woman men lust for Radhika has a magnetic quality about her When I met her and spoke to her I knew she was Ahalya as she could completely transform herself into this desirable woman” Ghosh said making a short film is way too difficult than directing a full-length feature as it involves time constraints but he enjoyed working on this new venture “I was supposed to do it for a long time Short films are very tough as compared to making feature films And not just the timing part the writing part is a challenge and telling the story which has a beginning middle and end in that short span of time So it may be a few minutes of film but the hard work equals the making of a full length movie” he said Ghosh said the response that “Ahalya” has been getting from the audience and film industry people is very encouraging and he is happy that everyone is looking beyond the language of the film and appreciating the content and story “The response is tremendous This whole new medium of online viewership is new to me and I am still learning about it I am really taken aback by the response So many people are watching it I don’t think that many number of people have ever watched any of my films” Ghosh said “Another interesting aspect is that people are calling it a film and not a Bengali film That is a very positive sign not just for me but for many filmmakers who make short films in regional languages It proves that if content is good it can transverse language boundaries” he added Ghosh is also glad that after watching the film people have realised that his 2012 Vidya Balan-starrer “Kahaani” was not a fluke and he can actually pull off ventures like that “I am happy that now people are realising and many have told me that they think ‘Kahaani’ was not a fluke That is a big compliment” the director said When asked about his upcoming films Ghosh whose last directorial venture was “Kahaani” did not give out any details but assured he will be back on the big screen soon For all the latest Entertainment News download Indian Express App More Related

first writes to the ICC requesting ICC to intervene or ICC receives a letter from another of its member board to do so but no such letters have been received "So I understand that Mr Manohar is

position where it could be perceived as challenging the authority of the Supreme Court of India "Without being formally requested to intervene specially without the full consent of the ICC board Don’t
