Sony Le Plex HD starts ‘Masters of Show Business’ initiative this month
MUMBAI: It is believed that everyone takes birth for a purpose. Once the purpose is served, they leave the mortal land for their heavenly abode. This holds true even for favourite musicians and actors as tragedy doesn’t spare anyone. From Heath Ledger to Paul Walker, Hollywood has lost some precious gems too early, leaving fans and critics disheartened and wanting for more. This February, Sony Le Plex HD pays tribute to those well-known actors who passed away too soon into their career.
‘It’s 9O Talk’ themed ‘The Tribute’ will air from 20–24 February, from Monday to Friday at 9 pm.
Five days, five great movies, one common theme for the week.
Who doesn’t remember the ‘The Joker’ from ‘The Dark Knight’? His chilling dialogues and amazing screen presence left everyone in awe of the bad guy. Heath Ledger couldn’t taste his own success as he passed away before the film could release. His untimely death cast a shadow over the subsequent promotion of the $185 million ‘Batman’ production. Ledger received numerous posthumous accolades for his critically acclaimed performance in the film.
Robin Williams is another name in the list. After playing iconic characters in movies like ‘Jumanji’, ‘Hook’ and ‘Mrs. Doubtfire’, he garnered a massive fan following all around the world. His death left a void in the entertainment world.
Another shocker that came to Hollywood was when the young heart-throb Paul Walker lost his life in the tragic car accident while shooting for ‘Fast And Furious 7’. The remaining part of the movie had to be created with the help of VFX and body doubles.
Other names in this list include Philip Seymour Hoffman and Chris Farley. While Philip died during production of the blockbuster film ‘The Hunger Games – Mockingjay Part II’, Chris (known for his comic timing in Saturday Night Live) passed away leaving quite a few unfinished projects and a lot of sorrowful fans behind.
