Miss Masala Dosa Film Mrinmai Kolwalkar Starrer Shooting Schedule Completed In Mumbai

Posted by on Aug 28, 2020 in Actress | Comments Off on Miss Masala Dosa Film Mrinmai Kolwalkar Starrer Shooting Schedule Completed In Mumbai

निर्माता निर्देशक आलोक श्रीवास्तव बना रहे हैं ‘मिस मसाला डोसा’

मुम्बई। ‘मिस मसाला डोसा’ टीम ने महाराष्ट्र राज्य सरकार द्वारा निर्धारित सभी सुरक्षा दिशानिर्देशों का पालन करते हुए अपनी फिल्म की शूटिंग फिर से शुरू की। फिल्म के लेखक, निर्देशक और निर्माता आलोक श्रीवास्तव ने बताया कि पहला शेड्यूल शिमला सहित हिमाचल प्रदेश के अन्य हिस्सों में शूट किया जा चुका है। फिर बाद कोरोना वायरस से व्याप्त महामारी के कारण पूरी यूनिट को शिमला ले जाना संभव नहीं था, इसलिए मुंबई के उपनगर दहिसर में शिमला पुलिस स्टेशन का सेट फिर से बनाना पड़ा। ‘मिस मसाला डोसा’ एक कॉलेज की छात्रा और पालमपुर, हिमाचल प्रदेश में स्थित उसके प्रोफेसर की प्रेम कहानी है। पुलिस स्टेशन के सीक्वेंस को अभिनेता ओजस रावल, लवीना इसरानी, मन्नू पंजाबी, मृण्मई कोलावलकर और प्रशांत नारायणन के साथ शूट किया गया।

मृण्मयी कोलवालकर पुलिस अधिकारी की भूमिका में है। प्रशांत की भूमिका कैमियो है लेकिन वह एक प्रभावशाली भूमिका निभा रहे हैं। उन्होंने पिछले साल रिलीज आलोक श्रीवास्तव की फिल्म ‘एन्डकाउंटर’ में मुख्य भूमिका निभाई है। कोरोना काल को देखते हुए उनका कहना है कि आलोक और मैं बहुत पीछे चले गए।

 

चूंकि यह निर्माताओं के लिए बहुत कठिन समय है, मैं इसके लिए चार्ज नहीं करना चाहता था और मैंने इसे आलोक के साथ दोस्ती के खातिर किया और मुझे उनकी दूरदृष्टि पर पूरी तरह से भरोसा है। यह अनुक्रम अत्यंत सुरक्षा के साथ पूरा हुआ था। फिल्म में हितेन तेजवानी, अनिल धवन, बिजेंद्र काला, शालीन कपूर और आशुतोष सिन्हा भी अभिनय कर रहे हैं। फिल्म की शूटिंग जल्द ही पूरी हो जाएगी।

Lido Learning Launches 10CR Young Leaders Scholarship Fund Scholarship Fund 100 Crore Over The Next 2 Years

Posted by on Aug 25, 2020 in News | Comments Off on Lido Learning Launches 10CR Young Leaders Scholarship Fund Scholarship Fund 100 Crore Over The Next 2 Years

Lido Learning Launches 10CR Young Leaders Scholarship Fund Scholarship Fund 100 crore over the next 2 years

Edtech company Lido Learning launches first of its kind Young Leaders Scholarship of 10 crores to help India’s best students become the country’s future leaders. The aim is to get this Scholarship Fund to 100 crore over the next 2 years.

Lido Learning, which offers small group tutoring to students in Grade 4-9 in Maths, Science, English and Coding, has seen massive month-on- month growth during the pandemic, as more and more parents have opted to replace in-person school and tuition with online learning.
However, the rising unemployment has made it difficult for many stellar students to be able to afford to continue studying online.

Thanks to Lido’s billionaire investors like Ronnie Screwvala (Founder UTV, UpGrad) and Vikram Singhania (Managing Director of JK Tyres), we have been able to launch our Young Leaders Scholarship Fund to ensure that India’s best students do not have any break in their learning and development,” said Sahil Sheth, CEO. “Our mission is to
democratize high quality education and this fund is another way for us to achieve that aim.”
The fund will give out scholarships of Rs. 20,000 to deserving students from Grade 4-10. Selected students will become part of Lido’s flagship
Young Leaders Program.  The program combines an interdisciplinary course of Math, English, Coding, Science and Leadership with career mentorship, hackathons
and masterclasses with leaders in order to give students a well-rounded education to be the leaders of tomorrow. The curriculum has been designed by an expert team from Harvard and Stanford School of Education and focuses on building problem solving, technical skills, communication skills, confidence and creativity.
“With NEP 2020, the new government directive is clear: we should be focusing on holistic, skill based learning and our Young Leaders Program does exactly that,” said Sheth. “It’s no longer good enough to train to be just an engineer, when most people are going to change careers at least 7 times, and when 800 million jobs are going to be lost to Artificial Intelligence. You need to have a very diverse and flexible skillset and the mind-set to change the world, if you want to be part of the 5% that will be giving orders to machines, rather than the 95% taking orders from them.”
The Young Leaders Scholarship Fund will be disbursing the first of the grants starting August 10 and the Learning to Lead Masterclass series will be kick-starting August 15, with Anupam Mittal (Shaadi CEO), Madhur Deora (PayTM President) and Ronnie Screwvala (UTV Founder) as the first speakers.
All students currently in Grades 4 to 9 are eligible for the Young Leaders Scholarship. To apply, go to lidolearning.com, and book a Young Leaders trial class; students will be selected based on performance, participation and teacher feedback.   

About Lido learning:

Lido Learning (Quality Tutorials Pvt. Ltd.) was launched in April 2019 by Sahil Sheth. It offers live tutoring and personalised online coaching sessions to students from Classes 5-9 in Maths and Sciences from both CBSE and ICSE boards. The platform characterises itself as an online immersive live tutoring platform for students, including interactive sessions, engaging quizzes, and interesting games.

With advanced analytics and tracking, Lido can create unique learning journeys for every student.

Sharman Joshi’s Film On Graham Staines A True Story That Rattled The Entire World Comes To ShemarooMe Box Office

Posted by on Aug 23, 2020 in Breaking News | Comments Off on Sharman Joshi’s Film On Graham Staines A True Story That Rattled The Entire World Comes To ShemarooMe Box Office

Sharman Joshi promises to hook audiences with “Graham Staines, Ek Ankahi Sachai: The Least of These”, all set to release on ShemarooMe Box Office in Hindi from the 28th of August 2020. 

Mumbai, 21st August, 2020: Since its much talked about launch, ShemarooMe Box Office has been in the news for all the right reasons. The latest movie joining this streaming platform boasts of many reputed Indian as well as international names. “Graham Staines, Ek Ankahi Sachai: The Least of These” is a globally acclaimed motion picture based on the startling episode where an Australian missionary was brutally murdered along with his two little sons in Odisha, shaking the whole country to its very core.

The Sharman Joshi starrer previously saw a limited release in India as an English film, but ShemarooMe Box Office brings the movie to our audiences in Hindi.  The film marks Sharman’s maiden collaboration with Hollywood artistes such as Stephen Baldwin and Shari Rigby, who essay the role of Graham Staines and his wife Gladys in the movie. 

The film has received widespread recognition for not only accurately depicting an unsettling incident, but also sensitively dealing with the subject. The narrative avoids pointing fingers or playing the blame game, spreading the message of “love over hate” even in the darkest of times, just like its titular character. An interesting trivia is that the project has been written in Australia, produced by an Indian-American, with music composed in South Africa while it was shot in India, making it a truly global production.

Excited on his countrymen getting to watch the film in Hindi, lead actor Sharman Joshi shares, “When I had read the script, I immediately knew it was an honest story that must be put out despite being in English, but now that the film premieres on ShemarooMe Box Office in Hindi, there is a much larger base of the audience that will get to experience the struggle of Graham Staines and the horrific crime that occurred in his family’s life. I play Manav Banerjee, a journalist who is conflicted between what is right and wrong, forced to re-examine his duties when faced with an inconvenient truth. This character was etched out to perfection and I relished portraying him.”

Southern star Aditi Chengappa, his co-star in the film has similar views, “It has been a very emotional experience working on this film based on a powerful, and tragic true story. Staines and his family teach us beautifully about true compassion and forgiveness. This story was waiting to be told, and it has been an absolute honour to be part of it. I am so glad it is releasing on a platform as loved as ShemarooMe Box, moreover in Hindi! I hope that it reaches as many hearts as possible, and can’t wait for it’s release on the 28th!.”

Prakash Belawadi, essaying a complex character called Kedar Mishra in the film, says, “It’s a challenge because it’s painful history, and the core issue is alive… and my role in ‘Graham Staines, Ek Ankahi Sachai: The Least of These’, has many shades — dark and uneasy. It was interesting for me to explore this man and his inner compromises, as he also shares the screen with some very talented actors. The movie will leave viewers troubled with unanswered questions which trouble us even today. It will make them think about reconciliation, gratitude and forgiveness, despite the shocking content. I’m looking forward to logging onto ShemarooMe Box Office and seeing the movie on the 28th of August with my family”.

Director Aneesh Daniel shares his two bits, “I wanted to honour Graham Staines in the best way possible and hence decided to produce a movie that documents the incredible change he brought about till his last breath. The fact that it premieres on a credible platform like ShemarooMe Box Office is a true reward to the blood and sweat each one of us invested into the film”.

On the opportunity to join forces with the best of India as well as Hollywood, producer Victor Abraham comments, “Every member of our cast and crew had been picked with the utmost confidence of them enhancing our film, may it be Sharman, Prakash, Stephen or the rest of this team. All these people and their hard work will now reach a much larger number of viewers thanks to ShemarooMe Box Office”. He adds, “With our film screening in Hindi, language is no longer a barrier for people to discover this true story”.

With outstanding performances, stellar direction and an insightful story, Graham Staines, Ek Ankahi Sachai: The Least of These seems certain to win hearts as a film that shows us stark reality but also gives hope.

Graham Staines, Ek Ankahi Sachai: The Least of These, starring Sharman Joshi, Aditi Chengappa, Prakash Belawadi, Stephen Baldwin, and Shari Rigby is directed by Aneesh Daniel and produced by Victor Abraham (Skypass Entertainment). The movie streams on ShemarooMe Box Office on the 28th of August 2020.

Singer Vee Kapoor Says- I Hope More People With Vitiligo Are Accepted In The Entertainment Industry

Posted by on Aug 23, 2020 in Singers | Comments Off on Singer Vee Kapoor Says- I Hope More People With Vitiligo Are Accepted In The Entertainment Industry

Singer Vee Kapoor, who is known for soulful devotional songs like ‘Giridhari’ and ‘Saavaro’ which have been released by prominent music labels like Times Music, has come forward to support a cause championed by his designer Saran Kohli. A while back, Saran started suffering from vitiligo, a skin based disease which compelled him to come up with an awareness campaign to spread awareness about it. He thought of designing a series of masks that would reflect what people, who suffer from this condition, go through.

Talking about the same, he says, “As artists, we have a certain responsibility towards society. I have the means to reach out to those who like my music and follow my work. I thought of using that reach to support my friend’s initiative and make more people aware of this condition and the discrimination which people who suffer from this go through. I was happy to wear the mask, endorse it and put out a statement out there along with a bunch of wonderful people who stepped forward to support this initiative. I have always been proud of my friend Saran’s achievements.  He has made the country proud with his incredible work as a designer and I am so glad to see him taking this initiative now.”

https://www.instagram.com/p/CD_LEzjJQpT/

The mask is a dual or multi-coloured one and aims to educate people about vitiligo and how people ought to be more sensitive about those who suffer from it.

The society, including the entertainment industry, needs to be more sensitive about this. There are also some extremely insensitive who mock people suffering from skin diseases.

“I am sure this campaign will make people think and bring about a positive change in society. Wearing these masks is a very creative way to spread awareness about it. I am very happy to be a part of it”, Vee Kapoor states.

Vikas Kapoor whose screen name is Vee Kapoor also has posted a couple of pictures with him wearing the mask to show solidarity with the movement. Since the last one year, Vee, who is based in London, has been very active as a singer and apart from releasing singles under labels of international repute, he has been doing cover versions of popular Bollywood numbers and uploading them on his YouTube channel. On the work front, he has recorded a bunch of songs during the lockdown which will release one after another soon.

One of his upcoming projects include a single which he has collaborated with renowned lyricist Prashant Ingole (‘Purani Jeans’, ‘Mary Kom’ and ‘Bajirao Mastani’)

Environmentalist Arushi Nishank Spurs Thousands Of Women To Pick Up Sui Dhaga To Make Khadi Masks – Sets Sights On OTT Projects With Bollywood Bigwigs

Posted by on Aug 22, 2020 in Breaking News | Comments Off on Environmentalist Arushi Nishank Spurs Thousands Of Women To Pick Up Sui Dhaga To Make Khadi Masks – Sets Sights On OTT Projects With Bollywood Bigwigs

21st August 2020, Kolkata: Inspired by the Gandhian values of self-reliance, social activist, environmentalist and classical kathak dancer Arushi Nishank of Uttarakhand supported and trained thousands of rural women in Uttarakhand to take up sui dhaga (needle and thread) to make reusable khadi and suti masks for free distribution to the army personnel, police, rural workers and frontline covid warriors. So far, over a lac of such masks have been distributed in Delhi, Mumbai and cities and towns of Uttarakhand. Arushi is also planning some big projects with Bollywood directors and producers for the OTT platform.

“Khadi is a symbol of Gandhiji’s self-reliance and is environmentally friendly and in tune with the spirit of Prime Minister’s Atmanirbhar Bharat initiative. Thousands of rural women who made these masks developed skills and are gainfully employed,” said Arushi at an Ek Mulakat webinar in conversation with Ehsaas Women of Kolkata member, Nilisha Agarwal. The webinar was organized by Kolkata-based NGO Prabha Khaitan Foundation. Over the years Ek Mulakat has become a popular forum for free-wheeling discussions with eminent personalities and achievers.

“It was great to have a young achiever to share her ideas, life experiences and dreams with us. Arushi, who is proud of her Indian heritage, is a source of inspiration for thousands of poor women and others. At present, Arushi connects with thousands of people through the Sparsh Ganga campaign to promote awareness of Ganga and its biodiversity,” said social and cultural activist, Sundeep Bhutoria, Trustee, Prabha Khaitan Foundation.

Arushi, who has authored two books and also produced a regional film Major Nirala on the Indian Army, is now interested in big banner Bollywood projects, “Yes! I am in talks with some big directors and producers for OTT platform projects for two or three web series. I am thankful to Prasun Joshi for support. I hope to make an announcement soon,” she said.

Arushi, the chairperson of Himalaya Ayurvedic Medical College & Hospital in Dehradun. She has chaired the International Environment Summit (IES) and spearheads the Sparsh Ganga Foundation, an NGO promoting environmental awareness, sustainable development, women empowerment, water conservation and cleaning river Ganga and other water bodies. The Government of India has recognised volunteers of the Sparsh Ganga campaign as “Ganga Heroes”.

Arushi started a environmental awareness project “Beautiful Valley” in 2009 and drew in the support of the Dalai Lama and Hema Malini, MP, and others. Her father, Ramesh Pokhriyal, the Hon’ble Education Minister of India, is a great source of inspiration.

A votary of circular economy and the live wire behind Sparsh Ganga’s various social initiatives, Arushi has trained and engaged over 800 rural women to be gainfully employed for making masks, incense sticks from waste flowers and environmental-friendly biodegradable jute bags as substitute for plastic. A classical Kathak exponent, Arushi has performed in over 15 countries. Her Kathak ballet “Ganga Avataran” has been much appreciated the world over. “The ballet gave me an opportunity to fuse my two passions – environmental awareness and dance,” she said.

Replying to a question “What can we do from our homes during covid times to support the environment?” Arushi said, “First we should keep our families and the country safe by staying indoors and by maintaining social distance protocols. Second we should conserve water. There is a water crisis looming over 22 cities in the country. About 70 per cent of water used is wasted which we should find ways of conserving and utilising in a proper way like watering plants and so on.”

Actress Bidita Bag Released An Outstanding Video Check It Out

Posted by on Aug 21, 2020 in Latest News | Comments Off on Actress Bidita Bag Released An Outstanding Video Check It Out

Babumoshai Bandookbaaz fame actress Bidita Bag recently shared a video to express the tumultuous experience of living amidst a pandemic. The nationwide lockdown, being observed since March 2020 to control virus spread, is causing restlessness among countrymen. Actress Bidita Bag supports famous fashion photographer Somsubhro Sarkaar’s concept through an unique video named ‘Pandemic’ to celebrate 73rd I-DAY and pay tribute to the nation which is fighting a pandemic situation.

Bidita Bag took to her Instagram account to share the message, which read, “A Pandemic. A Lockdown. Life upturned. Humanitarian crisis. A feeling of being caged. Switch from physical to virtual. Uncertainties all around. The collapse of the expected. Yet, from the ashes rise a breed of heroes. The resilience of the human persists, defying all odds.”

The video begins showcasing various struggles faced by human beings during the pandemic. Famous fashion photographer Somsubhro Sarkaar conceptualized and executed the whole shoot. Somsubhro with the help of Anshul R Gupta, popular film editor, and sound engineer Shaikh Mehboob executed this video. Talking about the video, Som Says, “The immense physical, psychological, social and virtual changes, struggles faced by human beings gave me the idea. Further discussions on the thoughts with multidimensional actor Bidita Bag gave it a structure.”

The collective Indian psyche, obstacles, and unsurpassable courage unfolded in poetry by Rachita Chauhan who penned a long note to go along with the video. Rachita said, “We are living in a wartime situation. A war against COVID. Unpredictability looms large. We stand face to face with our mortality. However, we are also witnessing stories of unsurpassable courage and dedication to duty. Humanity today stands in unison.”

Rima Mishra, founder of Media Tribe who agreed to help spread the video online adds, “No one can stop Somsubhro Sarkaar from creating magic. Even during the pandemic he and Bidita worked hard to shoot this very creative pandemic video. Resilience helps us survive and fight the disease better is what Rachita tells us through her poem. We should reassure ourselves that normalcy will return.”

   

We the citizens of India admire each and every sacrifice our heroes make for us, the blood, tears, pain, sweat, and fear involved in protecting the nation to make it a better place. With the hope of love and life, spirit and safety, Wishing all soldiers a happy independence day!

POEM

Thes lagi zindagi ko,

Andekha sa hai darr,

Roti ke majdoor,

Chal pare Nirash,

Tapte raston par.

Wardi dale Tainat,

Mohalle mein har Pahar,

Who bhi toh kisi ka apna hai,

Khada galiyon mein,

Bachane ek sheher.

Ek pratigya zindagi ki

Woh rahe amar

Safed pehne vesh

Khud ko andekha kar

Thama unhone lachar ko

Aspataaloan mein nirantar

Karm ka badla dhancha,

Seh Karmi screen par.

Berozgar nahi ho jaye koi,

Won Laptop pe ,

sanjh ho ya dopahar.

Usse chune ko Kare man,

Dil sa woh na door Magar.

Yeh faasley kahan tak

nakab har cherein par.

Ghar mein Nanhe,

Ke anane ka hai avasar.

Usse bachun Kaise,

Nav jeevan aur mamta,

Prashno ke dhunde Uttar.

Shavon ki Ginti,

Kar raha samachar,

Haath jode,

Natmastak,

Rab kare Meher.

Mere astitva ki neev kya hai?

Aasman ko pahunchun

Ya seechun banke neher.

Kin Rangon ko apna banun?

Piroun khudko Phul Bankar.

Bikhre Jeevan se haar Jaun?

Main na hoon kayar

Swatantra mera jivan,

Tinka tinka semetun

Banun khud ko Atma Nirbhar.

Chalo, Phir se banaye woh Ashiyana,

Mera Desh, Mera Ghar!
