Crazy: Prabhas in another Bollywood biggie?
Nuts: Prabhas in an additional Bollywood biggie?

Rebel Star Prabhas is probably just one of the busiest Pan Indian stars. After Baahubali it is recognised that Prabhas is confined to Pan Indian projects. He is now actively playing the direct role in the motion picture Radhe Shyam which is a periodic really like saga.

After this film, he is likely to operate in a science fiction thriller in the path of Nag Ashwin. Recently, it is known that Prabhas has okayed a mythological drama titled Adi Purush which will be directed by Om Raut.

Adi Purush is Prabhas&#8217s initially immediate Bollywood entry. It is his initially time doing the job with a Bollywood director and manufacturing house.

In accordance to the hottest reviews from Bollywood media, preferred producer Aditya Chopra is eager to rope in Prabhas for another biggie that also stars Hrithik Roshan in the guide purpose.

Even so, by searching at the recent situation it looks very extremely hard.

All our burning questions ahead of Line of Duty’s series six finale

All our burning questions ahead of Line of Duty’s series six finale
O

ur thoughts are consumed by one thing and one thing only, and that’s the fact that Line of Duty’s explosive sixth series comes to an end in a matter of days. To quote the gospel of Superintendent Ted Hastings, AC-12 are “running out of time” to nick ‘H,’ aka the fourth man, the biggest, baddest bent copper who has been orchestrating a sprawling network of corrupt officers and organised criminals.

The dramatic trailer for the finale, released by the BBC earlier this week, promises that all of AC-12’s investigations to date have led up to this point – meaning major revelations are surely imminent. Thank God (and his Holy Mother), because we have more burning questions than Jo Davidson has locks on her door. Here’s what we’re asking ahead of Sunday night…

Mother of God… will someone finally tell us who H is?

Ted Hastings isn’t the only one haunted by the quest to uncover H. THE NATION NEEDS TO KNOW. Like AC-12, the walls of our homes are covered with printed out pictures of the potential ‘fourth man’ (that’s not just in my flat, right?) and we don’t think we can wait much longer to have this bad apple uncovered. Everyone’s been in the frame at one point another – Kate, Ted, your mum – but this A-list bent copper continues to evade us.

At the moment, the finger of suspicion points most obviously at Marcus Thurwell, thanks to the OCG MSN user with an IP address in Spain – but last time we saw him, it looked like he’d carked it on the floor of his casa. Chief Constable Philip Osborne definitely has a grudge against AC-12, and was one of the officers that Gail Vella was looking into for her controversial podcast. Could he be H? Or could the ‘fourth man’ be – hashtag feminism, guys – a woman? DCS Patricia Carmichael doesn’t like it when Hastings gets overexcited about H, but is she really a criminal mastermind or just someone who really wants to finish work at 5.30pm?

The gaffer seems to be on borrowed time

In the penultimate episode, Hastings walked over to his protégé, Steve Arnott, with a sad look on his face and said: “Sometimes you don’t lose, son. You just run out of time.” The fact that our fave fella Ted may be reaching the end of the road has been unsubtly signposted throughout the series. He’s looked out of his window with a melancholy expression more times than Jackie Laverty’s blue dismembered leg has reappeared. And who could forget his barnstorming speech to the PCC where he asked, “what’s happened to us? When did we stop caring about honesty and integrity?” Preach, fella. We’re conflicted: we really want Hastings to be able to retire on his full pension and enjoy that cruise he always wanted to go on, but also, we can’t contemplate life without him. Will he go down while following the letter of the law and die a hero’s death? We fear he might – Jed Mercurio has already warned us that the golden trio are never safe. Will the UK government be forced to organise a national minute’s silence? They’d have to.

How will Ted account for all that dodgy cash in the attic?

Is a confrontation brewing between Ted and his golden boy?

/ BBC/World Productions/Steffan Hill

Steve was clocking up major mileage following the M1 from the Midlands to the Mersey Riviera with his regular visits to John Corbett’s widow, Steph – until he concluded one painfully awkward sleepover by conducting an ad hoc forensic search on her Liverpool home, eventually finding £50k of cash hidden away in her attic. So that’s how she was paying for the Sky Sports bundle. Further investigation discovered that the notes were from the same stash recovered from the Edge Park Hotel – aka Ted Hastings’ depressing post-divorce residence – in S5. When incarcerated OCG bloke Lee Banks confirmed that Ted had told him Corbett was an undercover cop – information that ultimately led to his gruesome death – the revelation came like a gut punch for Steve.

It’s clear that the news has seriously perturbed Kate, too: “Steve told me some bad stuff about the gaffer,” she told Jo ‘No Comment’ Davidson when their Thelma and Louise joyride was intercepted by Carmichael and co. A confrontation between the gaffer and his “best team” seems unavoidable  – and we’re pretty sure we haven’t seen the last of Ted’s bubble-wrapped laptop from S5, either.

What’s lurking on Gail Vella’s laptop?

Apologies in advance to anyone who bought a microphone during lockdown with the aim of recording the next Serial. This year’s most talked about true crime podcast? It’s… the Gail Vella tapes. We now know that Pulitzer-worthy investigative journo Vella had managed to connect the Lawrence Christopher murder, the child abuse ring and police corruption, and in the penultimate episode, her missing laptop was recovered from Kingsgate Printing Services, formerly the OCG’s most in-demand hang-out. Surely there is evidence galore lurking on her hard drive – which might prove crucial in finally unveiling the top bent copper. Paging Jed Mercurio – it’s imperative that you release the Vella tapes in full on BBC Sounds when the finale wraps.

Is Jimmy Nesbitt really not going to put in an honest day’s work?

Marcus Thurwell has been living it up in sunny ‘Spain’

James Nesbitt has been more fashionably late turning up for his LoD cameo role than Anthony Hopkins picking up his Oscar. Ever since Steve Arnott started waving around an undercover shot of him wearing a Hawaiian shirt and having a chinwag on a jetty, we’ve been waiting patiently. He has been ‘playing’ Marcus Thurwell, whose person-of-interest criteria has been stacking up. Not only was he the SIO on the Laurence Christopher case, which Gail Vella was investigating for her podcast, but he then swanned off to become an expat in Spain – where the IP address of Jo Davidson’s OCG MSN correspondent was located. In last week’s penultimate episode, he appeared to have met a grizzly end – but we’re not buying it. Jimmy, we know you were in Belfast filming Bloodlands (also produced by Jed Mercurio) at the same time the LoD crew were in town – it’s time to put your eyebrows where we can see them.

Is Patricia Carmichael bent – or just the ultimate jobsworth?

Central Police’s most passive-aggressive woman

Ever since she stormed back into Hastings’ office like the Darth Vader of anti-corruption, DCS Patricia Carmichael has done her best to shut down any meaningful attempts to unmask ‘H’ with all the weapons in her arsenal of passive-aggression: icy smirks, snide comments and toadying up to the top brass. So is she bent, or is she just the Machiavellian line manager from hell? Though her decision to cancel all of AC-12’s surveillance ops was pretty suspect, we’re veering towards the latter scenario: in the end, it seems like the search for ‘H’ will boil down to a spelling mistake – and is Pat the kind of woman who can’t spell ‘definitely’ properly? Absolutely not.

It’s Steve versus occupational health – but who will win?

Will Steve finally book in for that check-up?

/ BBC/World Productions/Steffan Hill

Newly promoted DI Steve Arnott spent the first half of series six self-medicating his bad back in a codeine-induced haze, bulk-buying over-the-counter painkillers with all the energy he previously channelled into hoarding waistcoats from Burton. And then, sometime during episode four’s nerve-shredding ambush sequence, he seemed to morph into an action hero unencumbered by chronic back pain. We’ve not seen him so much as glance at a Nurofen since – yet our boy has continued to ignore a series of increasingly tense emails reminding him to make an appointment with occupational health. He now has five days to check in with HR – or risk getting slapped with a yellow notice and suspended from duty. DCS Carmichael is already keen to start disciplinary action against Steve after Kate went on a mad one in his tiny car in episode six – his chances of turning that temporary title into a permanent one aren’t looking good.

What’s under the concrete floor at the warehouse?

It’s a faff isn’t it, putting something under a concrete floor. Clearly no one would go to all that trouble unless they had something to put under there that they really didn’t want anyone to find. Unfortunately, Kate and Steve are unperturbed by the notion of calling out the GPR (ground-penetrating radar, apparently) after 5pm, and whatever is under that floor won’t be so secret by the finale. A dead body seems too obvious – a fridge has always been perfectly sufficient for the OCG (RIP Jackie Laverty). Perhaps it’s the OCG’s secret, undetectable lair, since all of their fave hangouts, eg the Kingsgate Printing Service, have been sniffed out by AC-12.

Who did Jo Davidson believe was her dad?

Which bent copper was Jo’s adopted dad?

/ BBC/World Productions/Steffan Hill

Yes, she conspired to have Kate Fleming bumped off by the OCG’s favourite son Ryan Pilkington – then had the cheek, the nerve, the gall, the audacity and the gumption to act offended when Kate accused her of doing just that – but it was hard not to feel very sorry for Jo when she learned the awful truth about her paternity. Can you think of three people worse suited to dishing out sensitive personal revelations than Steve, Ted and Pat Carmichael, who could barely cobble together a modicum of emotional intelligence between them? The news that Tommy Hunter was not just her uncle, but also her father, came as a genuine surprise – and Jo had previously told Kate that her dad was… drum roll please… a bent police officer. Could it be Marcus Thurwell? Her “no comment” definitely sounded a bit shaky when his tanned mugshot popped up on screen. Chief Constable Philip Osborne? Mike Dryden, the Scottish fella from S2? Nigel ‘Neil Morrissey’ Morton? Any other deeply suspicious men of a certain age who we might have forgotten?

Who actually killed Gail Vella?

We know Gail Vella was working on an explosive podcast that had ‘iTunes chart-topper’ written all over it, so maybe Joe Rogan wanted someone to get rid of her. But, despite Davidson’s best efforts to misdirect the investigation, it seems clear that Vella was murdered in a contract killing arranged by the OCG because she was sniffing out some top-level intel about police corruption. We already know that dodgy dude Carl Banks bragged about killing her in the pub, not long after his brother, athleisure-wearing bad guy Lee Banks, gave Vella a fake interview to draw out what she knew about police corruption. What we don’t know, though, is who gave the orders – and once that question is answered, we really will be sucking diesel.

Line of Duty series six concludes on Sunday May 2 at 9pm on BBC One
