Director Nila Madhab Panda Promoted his film “Babloo Happy hai” with starcast in Noida

 Displaying Sumit Suri, Preet Kamal, Sahil Anand & Nila Madhab Panda (1).JPG
Nila Madhab Panda, a well known director, critically praised especially for his film “I am Kalam” has made a new film “Babloo Happy hai”, for which, he visited Hotel Radisson Blu, Noida with actors Sahil Anand, Sumit Suri & Preet Kamal and promoted the film
Talking about the film Nila Madhab Panda said, “The film Babloo Happy is of comedy genre, all the young actors who have worked on it are very hardworking. I think, it is rather difficult to make comedy films because you can easily hurt people but making someone laugh is something very difficult and I hope I will be succeeded if I could make even one person laugh through this film. I am sure people will like this film of mine”
‘Babloo Happy Hai’ is a film that embraces these words, as it takes you on a journey through the breathtaking mountains, and through the lives of a set of memorable characters who will make you think again about love, and fall in love with love itself. It is a story set in the fast-paced times we live in today, concerning those who are forced to move the fastest - our youth.
Amidst the common notions of irreverence and rebellion, the youth of today is troubled by many questions, puzzled by many choices, battling with a lot of pressures; wandering perhaps, but not entirely lost. The most basic of these conflicts, however, remains the question of love. 
“Babloo Happy hai” is a comedy film and is all set to be released on 7th Feb.

Actor Sushmita Sen launches Author Shraddha Soni’s – I am Life

Displaying Sushmita Sen and Shraddha Soni (5)1.jpg
Author Shraddha Soni’s  book – I am Life was launched on the 30th of January 2014 at TitleWaves Bookstore, Bandra by Actor Sushmita Sen.
The launch started with a brief introduction of the Author Shraddha Soni and Actor Sushmita Sen given by Caroline Newbery from Random House Publication. Sushmita Sen then cut the ribbon along with Shraddha Soni unveiling the book – I am Life.A
This was followed by an Question and Answer round between the media and the Actor and Author. The Author then gave a vote of thanks to the people who have attended the launch and threw the floor open for signing copies.
I Am Life is Shraddha Soni’s foray into the world of writing. She got here almost as if life itself was holding her hand and leading her. A tale that moves as fast as it will move you. It is both a modern, relatable story as well as a window into what could be everyone’s spiritual quest.
I am Life is an edgy, modern-day fable that takes you on a mystical journey with life. It is a story that depicts the sole purpose of life is to evolve, and everything required for evolution lies in the fabric of life itself. 
About the book:
Life is a bitch, to Sid too...
The book begins on just another malt ‘n’ golf day, when 38-year old, jet-setting Siddharth Khanna finds his fancy Manhattan life in shambles.
With the rug pulled from under his feet, and after taking rounds of lawyers and voodoo doctors Siddharth finally hits a bar with Andrea, his enthusiastic spiritual junkie friend.
Andrea convinces him that the only way to find his answers is through finding God. With most searches these days beginning at Google, Siddharth clicks on ‘GOD’, and in a drunken epiphany, books himself a ticket to his homeland, the land of three hundred and thirty million Gods - India.
But life doesn’t spare him there too.
Arriving India forces him to revisit his childhood dream and purpose that he had traded for, with circumstances years ago. On a spiritual binge in Rishikesh, Siddharth encounters all kinds of people: Gurus, God men, business opportunists and hippies: each with a story and some with a lesson.
Siddharth who believes that life has been unfair to him isn’t the perfect candidate for such an adventure. Will this encounter help him find the answers he has been looking for? Does he find God?
It is an absorbing adventure that was written in an equally inspiring way. After all, for a first time writer Shraddha Soni, words didn’t come easy.
About The Author:
Shraddha Soni is born to life. Having been raised in Mumbai with humble yet firm roots, she has breathed life into life with every passing moment: be it joyous, indifferent or otherwise. Bold and a bit of a brat, very little can get past this petite author’s eye. It comes as no wonder then that she has been able to develop a story with so much force and flow that you are barely able to prevent it from taking you with it.
Her life is a tale in its own, call it what you may: romance, adrenaline, entwinement, her tryst with the Higher Power gets stronger with every passing day. How she got here is an answer she certainly knows but would much rather leave you to interpret. However, what she has been able to derive and develop from her personal experiences is truly remarkable and substantial.
Shraddha is known to unlock people before they even know it. She sees through the cloud, and cuts through the jargon with a simplicity you would not expect. She will narrate the blueprint of your life and its purpose like a movie cutting it clear in black and white. She travels through life as much as across cities, spreading her gift through workshops, inspirational talks and one-on-one sessions, all to connect people back to their soul’s journey.
One read of ‘I am Life’ and she convinces you that although a new journey for her has just begun, she is here to stay!
A Note from the Author Shraddha Soni
This book was written through me. I was an empty vessel that life chose to pour this fable through, and that’s something I’ll humbly stay as.
This book is my testimony in many ways, it holds all that I have been sharing with most people who ask me questions about life and its purpose.
The purpose of life is to evolve, and everything required for evolution lies in the fabric of life itself. It has nothing to do with how well we control life, but with how much we trust it. Life is not a coincidence, it has a plan for us and when we listen to life, it speaks to us, and mystical experiences become a part of everyday life.
I have typed this book, paragraph by paragraph, on my Blackberry, and when I put the pieces together, I realized that I had woven an entire story.  Life is a journey and this book is one of my souvenirs.
A Note from the Publisher,  Milee Ashwarya, Random House
Shraddha Soni's I Am Life is a unique book that we at Random House, are publishing this year. To me it is in the genre of Paulo Coelho- powerful, intense, and shakes you up by the time you finish reading it.
The narrative is layered and fast-paced, taking you on a spiritual, mystical journey with the protagonist Siddharth - to find the true meaning and purpose of life. Shraddha has done a fantastic job of telling the story, while at the same time drawing the reader deep into it so that by the end of it you almost feel you are a part of it.
I Am Life shows us how all the answers we seek are within ourselves: The book becomes a tool to make us aware and seek them out. I feel it is a timeless book, something you can read even when you are not lost, and always expect to be surprised by what you find in it. I am really proud to publish it and hope you enjoy reading it. This genre has yet to make a dent in the Indian publishing.

Salman lauds director Divya Khosla Kumar over Yaariyan Superhit status, gives her Best Smile Award


Displaying Divya Khosla Kumar and Salman Khan.jpg
At the recent Producer Star Guild Awards, Salman Khan awarded the Best Smile Award to director Divya Khosla Kumar for her superhit success of Yaariyan, the 40.63 cr grosser across two weeks. Said Sallu looking at Divya who looked radiant in a simple saree, “I give the Best Smile Award to Divya Khosla Kumar as she has been smiling, thanks to the super-success of her debute directoral venture Yaarian.” His words only added to the young director’s dimpled smile.
Divya who despite being Young Turk Bhushan Kumar’s wife, had spent over two years learning the nuances of filmmaking and went on to direct hit musical albums of T Series before helming her first feature film Yaariyan.
Hard work paid dividends, and Divya’s debut venture not just beat Dedh Ishkiya, but also the First Friday jinx of New Year as well. The last film to work in Jan was Kal Ho Na Ho.
Yaariyan came across as a breath of fresh air to audiences despite being a martyr at the hands of the critics, receiving tremendous response at the multiplexes with the young college going crowd becoming the key audience. 
The Opening Day figures of Yaariyan were nearly double to that of Dedh Ishkiya, though both had a nearly equal screen count. the business of Yaariyan in the first weekend  was close to last musical hit of T-Series Aashiqui 2 which collected Rs. 20.5 crores over the weekend. Yaariyan that has a production cost of Rs 9 crore and a promotional cost of Rs 10 crore thus has emerged a boxoffice winner with its 40.63 crore collection. This not adding Satellite (STAR Network), music (Rs. 4 - 5 crores) and ancillary rights (Rs. 1 crore).
No wonder Salman noted and appreciated the young director’s smile at being the Jan first week jinx breaker and superhit status.

The most successful Country Duo ever The Bellamy Brothers to tour India

Displaying 7009 Bellamy Brothers.jpg
The Bellamy Brothers have received nearly every music award there is to have, and they even hold the record in both the Academy of Country Music and the Country Music Association for the most duo nominations.  They’ve written countless worldwide hits, crossed the globe like their music has crossed genres, brought reggae to the Grand Ole Opry, and recorded 45 albums will be on the maiden visit to India, their first ever tour on the sub-continent.
 The Bellamy Brothers, Howard and David continue to prove that the trail they’ve ridden to fame has been as unique as their music itself - music that is now celebrating 30 years of success.  Commenting on their tour to India, the brothers states:
David Bellamy  -  “We have our fans and with this tour I am sure we will make more…” 
Howard Bellamy  - “We will play all our hit tracks and will get the crowds to move…”
Along the way, Howard and David created a patent on the newly cool “duo” category in country music.  In the era of the 2000’s, The Bellamy Brothers hold the record in both the Academy of Country Music Association Awards (CMA) for the most duo nominations.  Numerous Grammy nods have also been directed toward the brothers Music (ACM) and the Country.

The details of the tour in India is as follows:
Venues & Dates:
4th Feb, 2014 at Willingdon Catholic Gymkhana, Santacruz, Mumbai
5th Feb, 2014 at Quinta de Valadares, Verna, Goa
Time: Gates open at 6pm 
About the Bellamy Brothers:
The road that started on the pop music charts in the ‘70’s, took a winding turn into country music in the ‘80’s. The brothers first official gig was in 1968, playing a free show with their father at the Rattlesnake Roundup in San Antonio, Florida.  They honed their early skills playing black clubs throughout the south, and singing backup for artists such as Percy Sledge, Eddie Floyd, and Little Anthony & The Imperials. 
Within a few months, the brothers moved north, immersing themselves and their rock/country sound in the Atlanta market. The Bellamy's music picked-up the hard driving edge that bespoke the times.  Songwriting had become David Bellamy’s drug of choice during the long road gigs he and Howard were regularly pulling bodies and equipment to and from.  It was his songwriting that was posed to soon provide the duo a national breakout.
 The break came in the form of the hit, “Spiders & Snakes,” written by David and recorded by Jim Stafford.  The song became a smash, eventually selling more than three million units worldwide.  It became the catapult that rocketed the brother onto the L.A. music scene. 
The Bellamys officially lifted off the launch pad in 1976 when their single, “Let Your Love Flow,” became an instant smash in both the U.S. and Europe.  It stayed on the international charts long enough to build a huge international fan base for the hip young brothers that endures to this day.  In Germany alone it perched at #1 for more than two months. The love was indeed flowing as The Bellamys jammed for audiences on their sold-out concerts.
By the late ‘70’s The Bellamys were emerging on the country charts with another bona fide smash. “If I Said You Had A Beautiful Body (Would You Hold It Against Me),” originally scrawled on a dinner napkin by David, rocketed them to the top of the country charts the way “Let Your Love Flow,” had done in the pop market just a few years earlier.  It proved to be the first of a string of fourteen #1 singles in the U.S. alone.
Success followed success: “Dancing Cowboys,” “Sugar Daddy,” “You Ain’t Just Whistlin’ Dixie,” “Lovers Live Longer,” “Do You Love As Good As You Look,” “Redneck Girl,” “For All The Wrong Reasons,” “I Love Her Mind,” “I Need More Of You,” “Old Hippie,” “Too Much Is Not Enough,” “Kids Of The Baby Boom,” and “Reggae Cowboy” and “Crazy From The Heart,”…all have lined the corridors of the Bellamy’s musical history and their walls with platinum and gold.
