Now these are interesting facts. Rich Gujjars must buy a white Scorpio to show his status, wealth and style. It is only after getting atleast two White Scorpios that they may indulge in Audi, BMW, Mercedes or any other such vehicle. However, while they travel in Scorpio, other vehicles are used for other purposes like carrying Chaara (fodder) for their cows, ration for home, ferrying around kids etc. “it was quite funny. I actually saw one Audi filled with animal fodder at Bhatta Pasaul village.  But then they are also open hearted once they accept you as friend. The head of this village loaned us his own house to shoot in, their own Scorpios, white shoes etc for the shoot. They would even cook home food everyday for me and Annu Kapoor,” smiles the director Girish Juneja.  “In fact the Sarpanch shown in the film is actually the head of the village himself,” adds the producer Jagdish Gupta. 
A rib tickling, super sarcastic, unique story of razor sharp wit, ‘MUAVZA’ is focusing on the lives of Nuevo Rich of Delhi & NCR. How expansion of Delhi and NCR into neighboring villages has turned worthless lands also of few villagers into millions. Their absolutely hilarious way of spending money gives an insight into their characters. 
With an ensemble star cast of Annu Kapoor, Akhilendra Mishra, Pankaj Beri, Govind Pandey, Deepak Verma,  Tejinder, Kamlesh Gill, Manoj Bakshi and others, ‘MUAVZA’  meaning compensation, is produced by Jagdish Gupta under the banner of Jagson Entertainment Company and directed & written by Girish Juneja. It’s music is by Upmanyu Bhanot, Editor is Sanjay Sankla while creative director is Aslam Khan. Under the able guidance of Chairman Mr. Jagdish P. Gupta, Jagson Entertainment Company believes in progressive and entertaining cinema

MARYAM AND SCARLETT’S DANCE CATCHES TUSSHAR, RANVIR & VINAY’S ATTENTION!

 
It was a known fact on the sets of director Shashant A Shah’s next film Bajatey Raho that punctuality is very important for him. But it was hard to get Tusshar, Vinay Pathak and Ranvir Shorey to wake up on winter mornings in Delhi and head off to shoot leaving their cosy warm beds. So on the day when Shashant was to shoot with actresses Maryam Zakaria and Scarlett Wilson, the director was taken aback to see the three boys in their full avatar on the sets.  
“I was completely shocked to see them, in their shooting avatar all ready to shoot in time on a day they didn’t have to shoot because I was shooting a song that day,” says Shashant laughing. But later Shashant realised that the boy gang was there on a non-shooting day because of the two beautiful damsels Maryam and Scarlett.  
Tusshar, Vinay and Ranvir spent the whole day and night in their get-ups without shooting, just to watch the two actresses dance. “I actually thought that the next time I want to call the guys on time, I will tell them that Maryam and Scarlett are coming to shoot the song again,” quips Shashant. 
Bajatey Raho takes us through a journey where all hell has broken loose and it’s only the crooks left to rule the roost. Now the only way left to fight Evil is con against a con. When Sabbarwahl (Ravi Kishan) is on a roll committing a series of frauds, all in the garb of a successful business entrepreneur, little does he know that one of his misdoings has created a huge impact on the lives of 4 poor sods: Mrs. Baweja (Dolly Ahluwalia), Sukhi (Tusshar), Mintoo Hasan (Vinay Pathak) and Ballu (Ranvir Shorey). This is turn has only resulted into an enormous wave of need for vengeance. And when Mrs. Baweja decides to take things in her hand, there is no more stopping the good hearted underdog who have to become a ‘little BAD’ to fight the ‘very BAD’. Because at the end of it all Happy Ending it is… but all you will want to say is ‘Bajatey Raho’! 
The film is produced by Eros International and co-produced by Multi Screen Media Motion Pictures. MSM Motion Pictures will mark their debut as producer with his film. The film is set to release on 26th July.

THE SMURFS 2 - trailer launch + SAB TV's Taarak Mehta cast members are Smurfs India Ambassador​s!

Global Smurfs Day was held on 22nd June 2013 to mark Smurfs creator Peyo’s birthday. The day was highlighted by a worldwide Smurf Ambassadors initiative, which began in Brussels as Veronique Culliford, Peyo’s daughter, appointed Smurf Ambassadors from 28 different countries – including India - and dispatched them to Paris, where much of The Smurfs 2 takes place.  The ambassadors dressed as Smurfs and then boarded their Smurfs-themed Thalys train for Paris.  
In Paris, a huge flash mob greeted them by dancing to Britney Spears’ song “Ooh La La” from the film’s soundtrack – with a little help from Silvia Notargiacomo, choreographer of the French version of “Dancing with the Stars.”  The ambassadors also got to take a goodwill tour of Paris.
Ambassadors who travelled to Brussels and Paris included a wide range of Smurf fans, including television personalities, voice talent, choreographers, contest winners, and journalists -- and not least, characters Tapu and Champak Lal (Dadaji) from the top rated show on India’s SAB TV - “Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah”. The show will be integrating the Global Smurfs Day celebration in Brussels and Paris into its storyline in July, ensuring that even their fictional characters Tapu and Champak Lal pay homage to the Smurfs.

But the Ambassadors’ tour was just the beginning, as people in countries around the world celebrated this special day.  Iconic locations visited by the Smurfs include the beaches of Athens; Dublin’s Ha’Penny Bridge and Moscow’s Gorky Park, which were covered in Smurf-blue flowers to celebrate; Australia’s Surfers Paradise, where city signage was actually changed to Smurfers Paradise for the day; the busy tramways of Hong Kong; Castel Sant’Angelo in Rome; and the Leaning Tower of Pisa; in China, Smurf figurines took over the world-famous Great Wall and other iconic locations around the country.  
Elsewhere, Smurfs signed a giant birthday card for Peyo in Mexico City; visited children’s hospitals in Finland; painted Portuguese neighborhoods and South African orphanages blue; and joined the group Right Said Fred in a sing-along in London.
Finally, in Los Angeles, Neil Patrick Harris, star of The Smurfs 2, was on hand at the Grove as families enjoyed the day with appearances by the Smurfs, played the Ubisoft video game, sampled Menchie’s Smurfberry frozen yogurt, checked out the environmentally friendly, 100% electric Smurf-ified DASH cars, and participated in other fun activities.  In addition, the U.S. Forest Service and Ad Council’s Discover the Forest campaign was be on hand to distribute activity booklets and encourage children and their families to get outside and experience the many benefits of nature.  In the evening, families caught the first Smurfs film at an evening outdoor screening.

डॉली आहलूवालिया का बजाते रहो

वह बड़े परदे की घिसी-पिटी मम्मियों जैसी नहीं हैं. उन्हें अपनी ऐक्टिंग के जौहर दिखाना बखूबी आता है तभी तो वे बजाते रहो में बाकी के कलाकारों को लीड करती नजर आएंगी. जी हां, हमारा कहना एकदम सही है. डॉली आहलूवालिया फिल्म में लीड ऐक्टर हैं और फिल्म की पूरी कहानी उन्हीं के ईर्द-गिर्द बुनी गई है. डॉली को इस फिल्म का हिस्सा बनाने के लिए फिल्म की कहानी तक में फेरबदल किए गए.
डॉली बताती हैं, मेरे लिए वाकई यह बहुत बड़ी बात है. यह बात आपके हौसलों को बढ़ाने वाली है कि मुझे ध्यान में रखते हुए फिल्म की कहानी में फेरबदल किए गए. सशांत एक बेहतरीन डायरेक्टर हैं क्योंकि वे जानते हैं कि किस तरह ऐक्टर को उसका क्रिएटिव स्पेस दिया जाना है. इसी बात ने इस पूरे एक्सपीरियंस को शानदार बना डाला.
वे बताती हैं, जब मैंने पहली बार पटकथा सुनी तो मेरी खुशी का कोई ठिकाना नहीं रहा. सशांत के मुझ पर इतने विश्वास ने मुझे नर्वस कर दिया था. यह जिम्मेदारी निभाना कोई आसान काम नहीं थी लेकिन मैंने इसे निभाने की पूरी कोशिश की.”   
डॉली के लिए पटकथा में बदलाव करने के बारे में सशांत ने एक बार भी दोबारा नहीं सोचा और वे जानते थे कि डॉली के कंधों में इस फिल्म को बॉक्स ऑफिस पर ढोने का दम है. सशांत कहते हैं, वे एकदम नेचुरल ऐक्टर हैं, जिन्होंने पूरी फिल्म में मेरी मदद की है. उनके साथ काम का अनुभव अच्छा रहा और वे उन्हें लीड में लेने का हमारा फैसला एकदम सही था.
बजाते रहो ढेर सारे लोगों की जबरदस्त ठहाकों से भरी कहानी है और इसमें सयाने बाजी मार ले जाते हैं. शैतान से लड़ने का तरीका यही है कि ठग के साथ ठग बनकर ही पेश आया जाए. फिल्म में सभरवाल (रवि किशन) उद्यमी बनकर लोगों का धोखा देने का काम करता है. वह यह नहीं जानता कि उसके यह काम किस तरह से चार लोगों के जीवन पर असर डाल रहा हैः मिसेज बावेजा (डॉली आहलूवालिया), सुखी (तुषार कपूर), मिंटू हसन (विनय पाठक) और बल्लू (रणवीर शौरी). बस यहीं से शुरू होती है बदले की कहानी. मिसेज बावेजा कमान अपने हाथ में लेती हैं तो फिर शुरू होती है बहुत बुरे और कम बुरे के बीच की जंग. आखिर में सब कुछ अच्छा होता है, और आप यही कहेंगे बजाते रहो.
फिल्म को इरोज इंटरनेशनल ने मल्टी स्क्रीन मीडिया मोशन पिक्चर्स के साथ मिलकर प्रोड्यूस किया है. एमएसएम मोशन पिक्चर्स इस फिल्म के साथ प्रोडक्शन के क्षेत्र में कदम रख रही है. फिल्म 26 जुलाई को रिलीज होगी.
