Ali Zafar on a roll

After the stupendous success of his debut film, followed by Yash Raj’s Meri Brother Ki Dulhan, Ali Zafar is back with a bang, with a kitty of films that best suits his sensibilities ,starting with the remake of the 1981 cult - classic Chashme Baddoor directed by David Dhawan.
The actor having recently watched the final edit of the film, is mighty pleased with the way its shaped up.Says Ali “ When I saw the original Chashme baddoor, I had thought that the plot must not loose its organic and authentic nature and it must be a challenge to render it into modern times and aesthetics which David sir has done brilliantly. It’s highly entertaining remaining in the family movie viewing space. I think we are all very excited about it.”
Ali Zafar has also been signed on for Neeraj Pandey’s ambitious next, tentatively titled “Aman Ki Asha”, which is scheduled to go on floors March next year.
If that wasn’t all,the actor also has producers queuing up to sign him , given his versatility and the certain exclusivity he has managed to maintain as an artist.
Next on the Ali’s plate is a film with a director renowned for his luck at the box office, announcement of which will soon be around the corner. Followed by 3 films in the pipeline, details of which are tightly being kept under wraps.
Commenting on the caution with which he approaches his films says Ali “ I don’t want to go on a signing spree just for the heck of it. Its my firm opinion that if you believe in the project ,you will do justice to it. I also don’t want to miss out on the quality time with my family and i can't let music which is my passion take a back seat so i have been writing songs and working on my next album in my studio. Having said that I have come across a few directors whose work I love and their scripts too, so I think you will see me a lot more now."

Pritish Nandy Communications and Humane Society International, the global partner of The Humane Society of the United States, were hosts at the World Compassion Day on 28th November, a day of sharing the ideals of ahimsa and compassion towards all life, with His Holiness the XIV Dalai Lama, who shared his thoughts on this platform with a very select audience.
In a world torn apart by conflict and war, an initiative like World Compassion Day (WCD) comes as a breath of fresh air. WCD is an idea based on ahimsa and compassion. It was a day where global icons took the stage and shared their ideologies, values and principles on how to make the Gandhian ideals of ahimsa and compassion relevant to our times.
India is the perfect nation to drive this initiative, given the fact that it has been the crucible of four of the greatest religions of the world - Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism and Sikhism - all committed to the ideals of compassion and ahimsa. This year, WCD will have a special focus on animal welfare and the growing importance of vegetarianism for reasons of both healthcare and to discourage killing of other species.
Speaking about World Compassion Day, The Dalai Lama said, “Today, more than ever before, life must be characterized by a sense of Universal responsibility, not only nation to nation and human to human but also human to other forms of life.”
A supporter of HSI’s efforts to improve animal welfare worldwide, the Dalai Lama has joined HSI in calling for an end to the intensive factory farming practices, including the extreme confinement of egg-laying hens in battery cages. In prior years he called for this change and compassion toward farm animals when he said, “Turning these defenseless animals into egg-producing machines with no consideration for their welfare whatsoever is a degradation of our own humanity. Switching to cage-free eggs would reduce the suffering of these animals.”

Special Screening for Superstar Salman Khan and Sonakshi Sinha of Ang Lee’s Life Of Pi!

The highly anticipated 3D celebration of cinema, life and a rarely seen stunning showcase of India and Indian talent, Ang Lee’s Life Of Pi opened to rave reviews not just by critics but audiences as well with the weekend collections reaffirming the massive appeal of Life Of Pi as it bagged an astounding RS 19.5 Crores (Gross)!!
The who’s who of Bollywood has been enamored by the film and we hear that Superstar Salman Khan and his family along with his 'Dabangg 2' co-star Sonakshi Sinha and Nitesh Rane watched Life Of Pi at a special screening organized by Fox Star Studios yesterday at a Mumbai suburban theatre!
The stars were completely mesmerized by the stunning film, an inside source tells us.
Life Of Pi has gathered the 4th biggest opening weekend of the year, and the 6thhighest of all time. Along with being the 2nd highest opening of all time for Fox Star Studios after ‘Avatar.’ The 3D adventure has also achieved the highest opening for a non-franchise film say the statistics.
Life Of Pi marks a significant addition to the stable of Box Office Biggies from Fox Star Studio’s whose 3D legacy includes Avatar, Titanic 3D, Rise of the Planet Of The Apes and their last record breaking animation Ice Age 4 : Continental Drift.
Oscar winning Ang Lee’s visual masterpiece achieved the laudatory figures despite the simultaneous release of the last installment of a popular vampire franchise and the two Bollywood Biggies released during Diwali continuing their positive pan India collections.
Life of Pi 3D is the visually stunning tale of a boy who is adrift at sea in a lifeboat with a Bengal tiger after his family is drowned in a shipwreck. Not only is the film a global platform of Indian talent with its cast and crew (Debutante Suraj Sharma, Tabu and Irrfan Khan), but some of India’s most scenic spots were tapped for the film, a first of its kind for a Hollywood film. Amidst racks of fabulous saris and colorful fabrics, many of which were used for the vibrant market scenes filmed in Pondicherry, India, where Pi spent his early year, there is a rich multicultural depth to the movie. One can see the countryside of Southern India in the hillside town of Munnar along with the French elegance of Pondicherry on 3D!

फिल्म निर्देशक हरीश शर्मा को एन एफ डी सी फिल्म बाज़ार ने अपनी ही फ़िल्में देखने की इज़ाज़त नही दी

जैसा कि हम सभी जानते हैं गोवा में अन्तराष्ट्रीय फिल्म फेस्टिवल चल रहा है और गोवा के मैरियट होटल में फिल्म बाजार भी चल रहा है जिसमें अनेकों फ़िल्में दिखाई जा रही हैं लेकिन यही फिल्म बाज़ार एक फिल्म निर्देशक के साथ कैसा व्यहार करता है जिसकी तीन फ़िल्में इस फिल्म बाज़ार में दिखाई जा रही हैं.
आइये जानते हैं मीडिया सलाहकार से फिल्म निदेशक बने हरीश शर्मा से। उन्होंने बताया कि, " मैं कोलकाता से सीधे गोवा आया फिल्म बाज़ार में क्योंकि मेरी इसमें तीन फ़िल्में दिखाई जा रही हैं लघु फिल्मों की श्रेणी में "आखिरी मुनादी" वृतचित्र श्रेणी में 'सोल्ज़र बीकम्स ए सोल्जर" और फीचर फिल्म की श्रेणी में "2 नाइट्स इन सोल वैली" जो की 28 दिसम्बर को रिलीज़ होने वाली है।
जैसे ही मैं एन ऍफ़ डी सी जहाँ मेरी फिल्मों की स्क्रीनिंग हो रही थी पंहुचा प्रतिकिया जानने के लिए. एक लड़की मुझे वहां मिली मैंने उसे बताया की मेरी तीन फ़िल्में यहाँ दिखाई जा रही हैं उस लड़की ने मुझसे कहा कि क्या आप हरीश शर्मा हैं? यह सुनकर मैं बहुत खुश हुआ की क्या बात है इसे मेरा नाम भी याद है मैंने उससे कहा कि बस मैं एक बार अन्दर जाकर देखना चाहता हूँ कि मेरी फ़िल्में आप कैसे दिखा रहे हैं तो उसने कहा कि अन्दर जाने के लिए आपको पंजीकरण करना पड़ेगा. मैंने कहा ठीक हैं जब मैं पंजीकरण करने के लिए गया तो मुझे वहां तीन सज्जन मुझे मिले उन्होंने मुझे एक फॉर्म भरने और फीस 10 हजार रुपये भरने के लिए कहा यह सुनकर मैं चौंक गया क्योंकि 24 नवंबर आखिरी दिन हैं फिल्म बाज़ार की और सिर्फ एक दिन के लिए इतनी बड़ी रकम भरना कोई बुद्धिमानी की बात नही थी मेरे हिसाब से। मेरे बार बार अनुरोध करने के बावजूद भी उन्होंने मुझे अन्दर जाने नही दिया।
क्या करता ऐसे में मैं? मैंने एन ऍफ़ डी सी का उनके इस व्यवहार के लिए धन्यवाद किया और वहां से चलता बना।

Dear Sir/s,
We are concerned for our client MR. VEERAJ KUMAR VERMA @RAJAN VERMA, having address at 301, 3rd Floor, Building No. 4-A, New Mhada Colony, Lokhandwala, Andheri (West), Mumbai, India- 400 053, upon whose instruction and behalf, we have to serve following notice upon you;
That our client is a law abiding and peace loving citizen of India and is an actor by profession having acted in various feature films which has been proved blockbuster on the box office and some films are going to be released very soon and considering the same, our client is having a very good reputation within the society as well as within the entertainment industry at large, whereas, you no. 1 is a leading newspaper of Pakistan having a very good reputation within the international media and thus in routine course, whatever the news is being published by you, the same is being treated as a most trusted and truthful news not only within Pakistan but also at international level and thus, it is your bounden and mandatory duty to check the authenticity of any news before you publish the same in your news paper. Our client further states that you no. 2 is the Managing Director of you no. 1 and is actively involved into the day to day affaires of you no. 1 and thus, are very much liable and responsible for the acts and deeds done by you no. 2 for and on behalf of you no.1.
That our client in routine course of the business, had produced and acted into a film i.e. Hindi Feature Film titled Ashok Chakra, which was intended to give a tribute to the martyr and victim of the inopportune tragedy of the attack done by the terrorists on 26/11/2008 at our financial capital Mumbai. Our client states that the said film was completed well within time and was released worldwide and was very much appreciated by the people at large. Our client further states that in the said film, our client had played the lead role of Kasab, the only surviving terrorist, who after trail before the Honble Court at Mumbai, was sentenced to death.
You are also aware that the said terrorist Kasab, pursuant to the judgment and order of the Honble Court and pursuant to rejection of his mercy plea by the Honble President of India, the said Terrorist was hanged till death on 21/11/2012 at Yarwada Jail, Maharashtra, India and the said news came to be reflected everywhere in India as well as at International level via print and electronic media. That our client was very much shocked and surprised to go through a news on internet published by you no. 1 through you no. 2 in your news paper in its 21/11/2012 edition wherein the news regarding the judicial hanging of the said terrorist was published however, it was more surprising that instead of Photograph of Kasab, the still photograph of our client (procured from the said film wherein our client is carrying a weapon into his hands) is being published in the said column in your newspaper. Our client states that by the said act, you have made an attempt to pretend as if our client is the real Kasab and terrorist who have killed various innocent people on the said fateful day and also, you have made an illegal and unjustified attempt to declare our client as one of the dreaded International Terrorist.
That due to your aforesaid acts and deeds and willful default, the reputation and dignity of our client has been badly hampered within the society as well as at the international level at large. At the same time, it has also caused security concerned of our client and his family members at any time and place as, after the said news being published, a prudent man will carry an impression that our client is a real culprit of the said attack on Mumbai and mass killing of the innocent people of our country and foreigners.
Further, due to your aforesaid illegal and unjustified acts and deeds and due to publication of the photograph of our client in your news paper which is being published and distributed worldwide, our client shall face various problems in immigration, Visa, security check etc., while his visits to abroad and it is quite natural that he could be refused to provide Visas for the Country like America and in that case, our client shall not only face a tremendous mental and physical torture but also, shall face a huge and irreparable monitory losses as, in routine course of his profession, our client is required to visit outside India most frequently for the purpose of shooting of his films.
That it is quite regretful and surprising that the photograph of Kasab is easily available and specially for the media like you and the photograph of our client cannot be procured that much easily however despite the said fact, the photograph of our client has been affixed instead of Kasab which clearly indicates towards your selfish motive and design best known to you and the said fact itself indicates that the reputation of our client has been intentionally hampered by you at International level.
In the circumstances, our client have instructed us to address you the present notice which we hereby do and call upon you to compensate our client to the tune of Rs. 10,00,00,000/- (INR Ten Crores Only) for the mental and physical trauma and financial losses faced by our client and at the same time, you are also called upon to tender your unconditional written apology in your newspaper in prominent place within one week from the date of receipt of the present notice failing which, our client shall have left with no other option but to initiate necessary Civil and Criminal proceedings against you as per provisions of the Law of the land and in such event, you shall alone be responsible for the entire risk as to cost and consequences thereof, which you may please take note well in advance.
Thanking You
Your’s truly
Neeraj D. Gupta
