Displaying IMG_2484.JPG

Bollywood legend Amitabh Bachchan is poised to take the small screen by storm with his upcoming finite series YUDH, to be aired on Sony Entertainment Television. YUDH is going to change the way audiences look at primetime television with unique methods being implemented by the makers to give the show a realistic feel. One such distinctive feature is minimal or no makeup for the artists on the show.
In a departure from the usual, Anurag Kashyap, the creative director of the show took the deliberate decision of ‘No makeup’ for the artists and the entire cast welcomed the suggestion. Amitabh Bachchan, who plays the character of a real estate baron, Yudhisthir Sikarwar on the show added, “Keeping in mind that it was a directorial decision to make visuals look as real-life as possible, it was essential that the actors looked natural. That helped in the way our scenes were lit up & there were no special efforts to conceal defects, if any, on our faces. These factors work well in the overall look of the product.”
The mystique around 'Yudh' continues to draw attention of the entire nation
YUDH coming soon only on Sony Entertainment Television

KD Pathak needs to solve this case and find the real culprit.

Actor Ansel Elgort, said that he formed a strong bond with Shailene Woodley during the shooting for their sic-fi film “Divergent” where they played siblings.  
According to the actor it was their off-screen chemistry which helped them during the filming of “The Fault in Our Stars” where they play Gus (Elgort) and Hazel (Woodley), two cancer-stricken teens who fall in love.
“The Gus and Hazel relationship, it’s so important that it’s authentic and real,” Elgort says. “They do feel like they’re real friends and they do feel like they have that chemistry,” he said.
“If in real life those two people don’t have any connection and it’s just two actors going through the motions, it would be very boring,” he continued. They even developed inside jokes that they had “in their eyes,” when on the set of “The Fault in Our Stars.”
“When we did this movie, we were already very close friends,” he said.

Parle Products launches new TVC campaign for Parle Marie directed by Imtiaz Ali

Displaying Parle Marie.png
Parle Products, India’s largest biscuit, confectionery and snacks manufacturer has launched an Ad campaign for Parle Marie. Titled ‘Apna Circle’, the campaign consists of TV commercials that have been directed by Indian Film Director Imtiaz Ali. The campaign captures the essence of spending time with a close knit circle of friends.
Set in various situations, the TVCs revolve around the brand idea - ‘Baatcheet bakbak aur Parle Marie’. The TVCs highlight the meeting of friends and conversations that follow; be it the camaraderie amongst youngsters while discussing love interests, gossip sessions about husbands and mothers-in-law. All this while munching on a pack of Parle Marie, a conversation companion.
Mr. Pravin Kulkarnii, General Manager – Marketing, Parle Products said, “Chit-chatting with friends is an integral part of Indian culture. The East zone is a very big market for Parle Marie and the films have been influenced by the Bengali concept - ‘Adda’. Everyone can relate to this concept of circles because all of us belong to one circle or another, be it college buddies, friends at the Gym or those we meet at Clubs. Through ‘slice of life’ situations, Parle Marie aims to connect with these special circles.”
Director of the TVCs Imtiaz Ali said, “I seem to have known & have been consuming Parle Marie forever.  The four TVCs are simple and straightforward. We have kept the films simple and realistic but at the same time there is brightness in them, not only in the look but also in behavior. All the scripts had a spark and were interesting. The biggest point, I think, is the atmosphere we have created through all TVCs – circles of different age groups; each circle sits with chai & having Parle Marie while chatting & laughing and is the perky part of every day. Personally, my circle is the school circle which is the Jamshedpur circle. Then the other one is the college circle, having moved from city to city I have many circles.”
Mr. Mayank Shah, Group Product Manager, Parle Products said, “The campaign captures regular casual situations perfectly. Moments that are spent with a close group of friends should always be fun and relaxed and our aim was to associate Parle Marie with comfort, amusement and a part of every friend circle.”             
The campaign has a total of four TVCs that have been conceptualized by Everest Brand Solutions. The ads are currently on – air.         
About Parle Products: Parle Products has been India’s largest manufacturer of biscuits and confectionery for over 80 years. Makers of the world’s largest selling biscuit, Parle-G, and a host of other very popular brands, the Parle name symbolizes quality, nutrition and great taste. With a reach spanning even to the remotest villages of India, the company has definitely come a very long way since its inception. Many of the Parle products – biscuits or confectioneries, are market leaders in their category and have won acclaim at the Monde Selection, since 1971.

Monsoon Tips from Designer Amy Billimoria: Come the rains and it is very important to follow special care instructions for all heavy ensembles in your wardrobe.v Never leave the outfits in plastic bags, whether new or if dry leaned as they will leave damp water marks on the fabrics which will be impossible to remove. v Always open saris especially ones with Zari and embroidery as it's important to allow the fabrics to breathe in order to avoid the peculiar damp smell which is very common this season. v Also after opening it is important to cover the outfits in sheer mulmul fabric or old cotton dupattas. This will ensure that the embroidery is not damaged and will increase the life of the garment. v Never put items like clove or other articles to reduce the damp odour in clothes as they will only leave stains and yellow brown spots on the fabrics and will be hard to remove. v Tie Dye saris, shaded fabrics or dark shades that run color should be kept in single covers away from other outfits as they may stain easily. v And lastly if any damage caused due to weather conditions don't discard the beautiful embroideries as transferring these could renew the ensembles and help save fashion waste.

It is this ability of Queen to relate to audiences irrespective of language and boundary barriers that prompted me to take up the film. We are planning to start work on all the four remakes simultaneously and release them by 2015,” revealed Thiagarajan film who plans a no-costs spared affair with an extensive shoot in Paris, Amsterdam and Spain.
Queen is the journey of Rani on a marriage-less honeymoon that brings out  strength and self-actualisation, making her tale relatable and inspirational, the world over.
Thiagarajan is now on the lookout for the perfect woman with the spark to play the protagonist Rani. “We need an actress who can look serious yet carefree. It is not an easy role to essay, avers Thiagarajan who plans to rope in young blood to direct the film.
He admits that top Bollywood actresses have sent feelers, but he is still to take a call on the lead actress. Thiagarajan is however keen that Lisa Haydon who played Kangana ‘s friend in the original essays the same role in the remakes.
Rumours are rife about Thiagarajan’s son and southside superstar Prashanth playing an integral part of Queen as well. Thiagarajan smiles and says he will let Prashanth take that call. “Currently, Prashanth is busy with a Hindi film besides Sahasam in Tamil. I have ideas to rope him in, but  it is a character with grey shades. I respect actors and their choices and I will let him decide. If not him, then an actor who is on par with him would likely be roped in for the role,” says Thiagarajan who is currently scouting the right locations for his film.
Vikas Bahl, the director of Queen in Hindi is delighted, “Queen is made with a lot of heart and emotions, and I am elated at the  is getting this kind of acceptance across south.”
Adds  Ajit Andhare, chief operation officer, Viacom18 Motion Pictures, “Queen is a universal story. It resonates across cultures. The trend has always been for south Indian films to be adapted in Hindi. We’re proud to have turned the tables, where a Bollywood entertainer will be consumed in the four major south Indian languages by a maker like Thiagarajan.”
Thiagarajan who has taken on the baton from Vikas Bahl is known for his versatility and films that touch your soul. He has acted in over 150 films in various languages, directed 15 projects and produced 20 movies and Queen seems to be a perfect move in the right direction.
