End violence in the name of religion, says actress Arjumman Mughal

Coinciding with the annual UN World Interfaith Harmony Week (WIHW) to be held in the first week of February, Bollywood actress Arjumman Mughal has urged people to put an end to violent acts in the name of religion.
 
Recently, Arjumman played the female lead in the highly-sensitive movie Ya Rab, with the tagline 'Jihad against terrorism'. Endorsed and released by Mahesh Bhatt, Ya Rab was hailed as a genuine effort to showcase the correct face of Islam and help bring misguided youth back to the right path.
 
The World Interfaith Harmony Week has been established by the United Nations to promote peace and harmony between all people, regardless of their faith.
 
"Indians are an example of unity in diversity from ages now. And this is the time to put a complete end to all kinds of discrimination and violence in the name of religion. India is the perfect country to take this initiative and be a glowing example for the world to follow," says Arjumman.
 
Her film depicted how the religion of Islam has been used by some unscrupulous elements, as a tool to propagate violence and terrorism. It focused on a very delicate issue about a few self-proclaimed Maulanas (Islamic preachers) misinterpreting The Quran and its real meaning.
 
"Arjumman's cry for peace and harmony reminds me of Michael Jackson's everlasting song, 'Heal the world, make it a better place, for you and for me, and the entire human race. There are people dying, if you care enough for the living, make a better place for you and for me'," reminisces her public relations officer Dale Bhagwagar.
 
It can be noted here that Arjumman also bagged the 'Shaurya Award for Bravery and Excellence' not only for her restrained performance in the movie, but also for the sheer audacity and courage of accepting the extremely sensitive role, inspite of being a Muslim.

​Swara Bhaskar is known to be a dedicated actor who has a no-holds-barred approach to her films and roles​

Swara Bhaskar is known to be a dedicated actor who has a no-holds-barred approach to her films and roles. So when director Ashwiny Iyer asked her to put on 8kgs for her role as protagonist in Nil Battey Sannata, Swara complied and piled on the kilos. However she started shooting for Salman starrer Prem Ratan Dhan Paayo and Sooraj Barjatya expressly asked her to lose weight. Swara has been training hard for the past few weeks as she goes back to PRDP for her second and crucial schedule in February. Sources say she is doing a mix of Calisthenics/ Body Fit, Free Weights and basics of mixed martial arts with celebrity trainer Delton D'Souza. "Swara is training daily and harder than she ever has. She is also being more careful about her diet than ever before. Delton is relentless and the efforts are paying off already." 
Quote: I am now understanding firsthand the meaning of the saying: no gain without pain!! I am SO sore from training! I don't think I've ever worked so hard. Delton is strict and relentless which is good for a brat like me. So yes I feel like I'm training for the Army. But seriously the best thing is I'm using my body weight and doing a lot of fitness oriented training. Delton is also teaching me some self defense moves.. So I'm going to be a mean girl on the streets that no one can mess with. (Laughs) :)

Aanchal to kill Rukmani in Tum Aise Hi Rehna?

Drama galore in the popular daily soap Tum Aise Hi Rehna on Sony Entertainment Television as the storyline took a turn towards the recently introduced spooky angle. So far in the show we have witnessed that the mystery girl Aanchal has been troubling Ria with her motive to get close to her lost love Abhimanyu. But currently we see that her target has shifted and now she is harming the entire Maheshwari family. 
In the upcoming episodes we will see that Aanchal’s  plan to get cosy with Abhimanyu  fails when Rukmini comes to meet Abhi late at night and enquires him about the accident. Fuming Aanchal pushes Rukmani from the stairs for spoiling her plan and thus Rukmimi is rushed to the hospital.  Rukmini informs the family members that falling from staircase was not a mere accident but a planned effort as someone pushed her from the stairs. Rukmani’s doubts worry Aanchal, who is looking for a chance to silence her. To overcome this situation, Aanchal uses her evil power to put Rukmini to sleep and tries to remove her drip and kill her.

French artist commissioned for NH10 prosthetics.


NH10 is essentially a thriller at heart about a young couple who are getting away from the city for a much needed break and how things take an interesting and unexpected turn - It's new age , gritty and looks to break stereotype and will leave you at the edge of your seat.

What makes this thriller, different from the others was the fact that no scene has been over dramatized and is as close to reality as possible and the same applies for the prosthetics used in the film - The prosthetics in the film are almost invisible and as minimal and natural as possible, professionally executed by Romy Angevin, who is an experienced make up designer from Paris, France.

Reveals a unit source, “ Nowhere will you be made to feel that something is more dramatised than what it would actually be in similar situations. Since none of our action is romanticized or loud, it was important that even our prosthetics was not over the top or designed in a way where it emphasizes the impact of the action sequence.”

Says Navdeep Singh, "It's a new-age thriller and the prosthetics helped to break stereotypes. Anushka is a star but in this film we did not want to glamorize her at all. We wanted the scratches, bruises and gashes she sustains to look convincing as its a very real film. That's why a specialist in make-up and design was brought in.Romy's experiences on stage and European films gives the film an world cinema look.“

Social Networking Leaves Lauren In The Spot!

All set to embark upon a whole new adventure, Lauren Gottlieb was surprised to know that her Instagram update was thoroughly misconstrued!!!  A few days ago, her JHALAK DIKHLA JA co-participant and ABCD costar Salman Yusuff Khan told a daily that he is set for another film with his mentor Remo D’Souza and Lauren Gottlieb. 
The news came in tandem with Lauren’s insta-update wherein she had posted a image stating that she had signed her first film of 2015. Everyone promptly assumed Lauren was talking about the same Remo flick that Salman had spilled the beans on!!! Lauren IS in talks with Remo about this film but it is at the initial stages and nothing has been finalized yet. 
Lauren might have started off as an import into the world of Bollywood but it is evident that her immense popularity has made her a household name already. The actress who is a renowned dancer, will soon be seen in Remo D’Souza’s ABCD 2 with the new brigade of stars like Varun Dhawan and Shraddha Kapoor, is in fact all set to take another huge leap in terms of her repertoire.
She had gone ahead and signed a huge project under the Tips Banner and is set to diversify into the Punjabi film industry, opposite none other than Diljit Dosanjh who is the biggest name up north when it comes to Punjabi cinema. Clearly Lauren’s fan base sure seems to be increasing for her star-status certainly is, with all everyone embracing her into this new venture. It was a photograph of this venture that Lauren had shared on the social network
