YEH KYA LOCHA HAI?

Kuch Kuch Locha Hai is the new title for director Devang Dholakia’s next. Previously titled Patel Rap, the film has already generated a lot of buzz due to it’s curious casting. After all, what possibly could a film featuring the sizzling Sunny Leone and the lovable Ram Kapoor paired opposite each other be about? Says Devang,” My film is a spicy sexy comedy. The situations and the jokes are bound to have the audiences in splits and it is our belief that no one will have seen Ram Kapoor and Sunny Leone in the avatars that they are going to be seen in in the film before. It’s too early to reveal the storyline of the film but we all know that the audiences will have as much fun watching it as we are having shooting it. “ And why the title change? Quips Devang, “We couldn’t have found a more apt title than Kuch Kuch Locha Hai. The film, it’s essence, its flavors are enunciated through the title without giving away too much about the film and trust me, our film is full of the most hilarious Locha’s!”
Kuch Kuch Locha Hai is touted as being Sunny Leone’s first full blown comic caper. Says Sunny, “ I am elated to be working with Devang again and am really excited about working with the super funny Ram Kapoor. Devang and I have a very special relationship, not just as friends but he is like my family! The whole team and I always have a great time shooting and I know that with Ram added to our already crazy mix, shooting for this film will be a blast. Ram is a revelation to work with. Not only are we laughing and joking around but Ram also shares valuable tips important for a film like ours and I consider myself lucky to be working with such an experienced actor.” Added Ram” When Devang narrated the film to me, I was falling of the seat laughing it was literally that funny, but what I also realized was that it was extremely relatable and I love taking up subjects that people can relate to. Devang himself has a fantastic sense of humor so it was pretty much a no brainer saying yes to doing this film. What I didn't know then and what has turned out to be the icing on the cake is that Sunny too has a great sense of humor and she's amazing to work with. We've just about started shooting and so far it's been an absolute blast!”
The film has already started shoot in the exotic locales of Malaysia where it will be wrapped up in a start to finish schedule. It is being presented by Alumbra Entertainment and Media Pvt Ltd and is being produced by Magic Pictures and Entertainment Pvt Ltd and Maximus Multimedia Pvt Ltd.
“ Said producer Mukesh Purohit Of Magic Pictures and Entertainment,” Kuch Kuch Locha Hai is an exciting film. From the casting to the locations to the music, it has all come together very well. Ram as a rich Gujrati businessman and Sunny as a famous film star and the situations they find themselves in lead to innumerable funny moments. Our direct, Devang Dholakia who himself is a Gujrati has bought alive the quirks and nuances of a typical dysfunctional family flawlessly and peppered it with his own unique brand of humor. Even though we are in the midst of shooting right now, we are already counting down the days to the release of the film. After all, laughter is most effective when it is shared!”

~The show airs at 11:00 am on Sundays, starting on November 30th~
The Tara Sharma Show is a platform to freely discuss topical parenting issues with people from different walks of life. In this multiplatform show, Tara plays the role of a non-patronizing moderator as she and her guests share experiences, discuss, debate, perhaps laugh and learn as they grow together as parents on the incredible journey of bringing up kids.
The show is rooted in her blog diary as a mum where she refers to personal anecdotes and stories relevant to the particular theme being discussed, always reiterating that she is no expert but just a regular mum who is always learning, hence being relatable and credible to the audience. Some of the topics addressed in the show are: The eternal debate of working mums, stay-home mums, mompreneurs and work-from-home mums, education, technology and kids, the role of dads, etc. The show also raises awareness for various causes.
There are celebrity and non-celebrity guests on the show as well as tips from professionals – child psychologists, educationists, pediatricians etc, inspirational stories and personal anecdotes.
Celebrity guests who will feature on the ‘Tara’s Tete-a-tete with’ segment of the show include Kajol, Shilpa Shetty, Mary Kom, Juhi Chawla, Vivek and Priyanka Oberoi, Konkona Sen Sharma and Tisca Chopra, among others. ‘Tara’s Parenting Pow-wows’segment features non-celebrity parents who are somehow connected to the theme of that particular episode.
The first episode will see superstar actress and mother of two- Kajol, on the hot seat, as she opens up on the experience of becoming a mother, playing a parent to two young kids and balancing her home and work life. The episode will also have an animated discussion on stay-home mums, mompreneurs and work-from-home mums, by a group of articulate mums with differing views on the subject.

Tara Sharma Saluja, Creator, host & co-producer ofThe Tara Sharma Show, said, ‘Our show has been a great way for me to be with our kids and continue to work as being the creator, co-producer and host of the show a lot of my work happens from home and as it is centered on topics relevant to children, I can draw from real life experiences and research too. I am a big believer in each to their own,, one should never judge another parent as each one’s situation is different, yet we can share and perhaps learn from each other. I co-produce the show with my husband’s company, The 120 Media Collective and as I often joke, Roopak, my husband is the co-producer of our kids and the show!’’
Commenting on the show, Kevin Vaz, General Manager- Star India- English Cluster, said, “Creating relevant content, which caters to the needs of an upwardly mobile Indian target audience has been our foremost objective while selecting content for Star World.

Ganesh Bangalore, Marketing Director at J&J,said, "Johnson’s® Baby has been witness to the strong bond between mother and baby and has a heritage of over 125 years. This has been achieved, largely by identifying and meeting the needs of babies and the needs of mothers for their babies. This approach has helped us stay modern and contemporary, connected with the new generation mom. Tara Sharma Saluja through her show focuses on the ever evolving loving bond between the mother and her baby, by providing a platform to freely discuss topical parenting issues with people from different walks of life.

The Bigg Boss needs to stand firm for respect of women

"Bigg Boss needs to stick to his stand for womenfolk when he takes one," feels Bollywood publicist Dale Bhagwagar, who is handling the public relations for Season 8 contestant Sonali Raut and ex-contestant Aarya Babbar.
A few weeks ago, Bigg Boss took away Ali Quli Mirza's privilege of becoming a Captain of the House again, as a punishment for inappropriately touching Sonali Raut without her consent. But seemingly going back on his stand, he offered Ali an option to have the ban removed, during a task this week.
"The Boss is looked upon as the righteous, mightiest, fairest, wisest, discerning, non-deceiving watcher and protector of the contestants. Will it be alright for him to RETRACT from his stand, especially when he has taken it for the RESPECT of a lady?," questions Dale.
"Once the Boss banned Ali from becoming a Captain again in this Season, what is the logic and sense of offering him that privilege now?" the PR further asks. "Earlier too, Bigg Boss gave a re-entry to Puneet Issar just a day after being nishkasit (evicted) for being violent towards Aarya," he points out.
"After the way Ali has behaved with Sonali as well as other contestants later, wont it be disrespectful to them all if the ban is removed?"
It can be noted that apart from disrespecting Sonali, Ali has made fun of Karishma Tanna by keeping on 'barking' (imitating an irritating dog) in the presence of none other than megastar Salman Khan.
He has earlier badly yelled at Diandra Soares and also questioned the "auqaat" (status / true colours) of a lady, in his argument with Dimpy Ganguly Mahajan. Apparently, teaching him a fitting lesson for an indecent proposal, Sonali is shown to have SLAPPED Ali on the reality show today.

Now we know why this team has chosen the name Mumbai Warriors!! Of Course, with the latest entrant in the team you don’t expect anything but fighter traits. Dolly Bindra was seen strolling in wearing a pink sun hat and killer heels just before her team took to play. She changed into her team jersey  but didn’t get rid of the heels. True to Dolly’s style, she had something to say about everything whether it was needed or not and to top it she jumped in as a fielder. However the commentator completely ruined her mood by calling her aunty prompting her to start a string of expletives under her breath.
Dolly ji yaha cricket bat ball se khelte hain, baato se nahi !!

Vir Das reaches the half million mark

He had given himself a personal mile stone and five years to do it. He has done it in two and a half. This Sunday show of battle of the sexes is very special for Vir Das as it sees him reach the half million ticket mark across all his shows.
 This feat has catapulted him to the position of being the largest selling Indian comedy performer. This feat was made possible through the stupendous response all his shows have garnered from audiences across the country, including but not restricted to History of India, Battle of the Sexes, Alien Chutney, Vir Das's Resentury, etc.
Talking about the same, an ecstatic Vir Das said, “It’s just crazy to get here this fast, I would like to thank the audiences and fans for the same.” He further said, “Three years ago I had given myself a mandate that in the next five years I should sell half a million tickets and I started keeping track. Now two and half year after I started aggressively perusing this goal, I still had to sell 290 tickets to attain this feat, which I did with the quantum of tickets sold for Battle of the Sexes last Saturday.” "Now I wanna see how fast I can reach a million, it's this cool phase where the films and the comedy crowds have all blended together."
The talented actor is constantly juggling between films and live shows. The actor is quiet excited about 2015 as he has around 4-5 mainstream Hindi language feature films slated for release next year. It will also be an important year for Vir as all his characters he essays in these films would be unique establishing his versatility on screen as well. ‘Santa Banta’ and ‘Mastizaade’ are few of his films which will release in the first half of 2015 itself.
