Akshay Kumar is a true hero: Devendra Fadnavis

From the driver's seat to the office chair and then the comfy couch, sedentary lifestyle could well be the killer, avers a new Mayo Clinic study. Sitting could well be more dangerous than smoking, as it kills more people than HIV and is more treacherous than parachuting.Recent researches tag global figures on account of sedentary lifestyle deaths are an alarming 5.3m, terming it pandemic, equating to about one in 10 deaths from diseases such as heart disease, diabetes and breast and colon cancer. Habitual inactivity raises risks for obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, deep-vein thrombosis, and metabolic syndrome among many others.Prolonged sitting adds up to six percent of all cases of coronary heart disease, about 7 percent of type 2 diabetes and 10 percent of breast and colon cancer; that is  5.3 million deaths per year, more than the 5 million lives lost annually to smoking.A new way of thinking, suggesting the public needed to be warned about the dangers of inactivity rather than just reminded of the benefits of being active seems to be the only possible solution in sight, aver researchers drawn from centres across the world, who feel that governments needed to look at ways to make physical activity more convenient, affordable and safer.Keeping this in mind, Asif Bhamla, President, Bhamla Foundation, has roped in Akshay Kumar as the MCGM’s good health ambassador by getting the superstar to bring to life, Jaanbachao campaign and wants every citizen not to be his own enemy and protect himself against diseases. Directed by Rajkumar Hirani, and also starring renowned Marathi actor Nikhil Ratnaparikhar, the campaign is a unique initiative by the foundation and MCGM.This Goodhealth campaign followed the TB Harega Desh Jeetega campaign with Bill Milanda Gates Foundation, featuring Amitabh Bachchan to essay character of the common man.Bhamla, who is known for his philanthropic activities, is known for his support to environmental and humanitarian causes. The current campaign sees Akshay Kumar bring out the fitness consciousness is the common man, and was launched by Devendra Fadnavis, Hon Chief Minister of Maharashtra in the presence of Ajoy Mehta, Municipal Commissioner, Mumbai, Additional Commsioner  Sanjay Deshmukh, Ashish Shelar, Shalini Thackeray, and eminent cardiologist Ramakanta Panda of Asian Heart Institute and Sonu Walia among others. Shekhar Suman was the Master of Ceremonies.Devendra Fadnavis was vocal in his appreciation. “A true celebrity is one who does not just deliver hit films but also takes out time to stand up for causes that matter. Akshay has not just taken out time for the Jaanbachao campaign but is also here for the launch. This, in my mind, makes him a true ‘hero, a true ‘superstar’. Asif Bhamla has a social bent of mind and through Bhamla Foundation has done a commendable initiative with MCGM,” he stated.Added Asif Bhamla, “We lose health for half our lives earning wealth, and the other half we lose wealth to get good health. This campaign aims to shake us from our couch potato roots and get us to get out there and do something now. Who else could be a perfect ambassador than Akshay Kumar? And when it came to direction, we could think of no one better than Rajkumar Hirani. I am glad, both agreed and the Chief Minister is gracious enough to give the nod to launch the same. We hope this campaign goes a long way in helping not just Mumbaikars but each global citizen stay healthy.”Akki had a word of advice. “For good health, all you need to do is to not eat anything after 6:30 pm… if you follow this simple rule, diabetes, hypertension and any such disease can be kept at bay.” “India is burdened with a twin epidemic of infectious and non-communicable diseases (NCDs). Even as we tackle diarrhea and tuberculosis as causes of large scale death, we face the dubious distinction of being the heart disease and diabetes capital of the world. Unhealthy eating habits, lack of exercise, smoking, alcohol consumption and stress along with poor health seeking behavior puts Indians at high risk for NCDs.  The brunt of NCDs is borne by most people in their most productive years and it affects their families and the nation at large," avered Dr. Ramakanta Panda, Cardiac Surgeon and Vice Chairman & Managing Director, Asian Heart Institute, Mumbai. “According to the WHO Global action plan, if these risk factors are addressed by changing lifestyle, it can reduce NCD related premature deaths by 50%. It  is very important to adopt a healthy lifestyle which includes regular exercise and healthy diet,” he added.Considering that researchers estimate that if only 10 per cent of those who are currently inactive started to exercise, 533,000 lives would be saved; if 25 per cent began moving, 1.3 million deaths could be averted, with just 30 minutes of brisk walking or cycling five days a week, we would like this initiative to surely make a difference.

Dramatic Thriller ‘31st October’ Declared Tax-Free In Punjab

Writer-producer Harry Sachdeva’s dramatic thriller ‘31st October’ set against the backdrop of the 1984 anti-Sikh pogrom ,which had released last week, has been declared tax-free by the Punjab Government. The government took this decision after taking in consideration the bold step taken by the makers of the film to throw light on the darkest day in the country’s history, the victims of which are yet to get justice from the Indian judiciary.
The film, which stars Vir Das and Soha Ali Khan, was not only lauded in India, but had also garnered appreciation from across the globe in its depiction of the gruesome riots and the bond of friendship and brotherhood between communities. The film revolved around the struggle for survival of a Sikh family trapped in a riot zone in New Delhi in the aftermath of the anti-Sikh riots following the assassination of the then Prime Minister Indira Gandhi.
While many Gurudwara management Committees and Sikh organizations lent their support by bulk booking theatres to show their members the film, few of them even approached the Punjab government for them to extend their official support. Upon reviewing the film, Punjab Government officials agreed on the historical importance of the film and they called upon Harry Sachdeva to inform him of the acceptance of the Tax Exemption in the state.
"I am grateful for the Punjab Government to see the merit and the message of the film and exempt from paying entertainment tax. My goal is to make this film reach as wide as possible and now people in Punjab can go see the film at a concessional rate. As this is a film that promotes brotherhood as well educating our young generation about the truth of the 1984 Sikh Genocide, it was important for it to get support from government in addition to the community,” said Harry Sachdeva , who was recently in Amritsar to meet with Sikh community leaders.
Expressing his happiness at the Box office response, where the film has collected 7.5 crore worldwide till Wednesday, Harry is hopeful for the collections to pick up further and a continued run on second week inspite of the two big releases- Shivaay and Ae Dil Hai Mushkil coming outthis Friday.
Produced by writer-producer Harry Sachdeva and Magical Dreams Productions Pvt Ltd, , co-produced by Anand Prakash, directed by National award winner Shivaji Lotan Patil, and released by Panorama Studios, ‘31st October’ is a glimpse into the  controversial dark chapter of India’s History

Sitting could well be more dangerous than smoking, as it kills more people than HIV and is more treacherous than parachuting. Recent researches tag global figures on account of sedentary lifestyle deaths are an alarming  5.3m, terming it pandemic, equating to about one in 10 deaths from diseases such as heart disease, diabetes and breast and colon cancer. Habitual inactivity raises risks for obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, deep-vein thrombosis, and metabolic syndrome among many others.Prolonged sitting adds up to six percent of all cases of coronary heart disease, about 7 percent of type 2 diabetes and 10 percent of breast and colon cancer; that is  5.3 million deaths per year, more than the 5 million lives lost annually to smoking.A new way of thinking, suggesting the public needed to be warned about the dangers of inactivity rather than just reminded of the benefits of being active seems to be the only possible solution in sight, aver researchers drawn from centres across the world, who feel that governments needed to look at ways to make physical activity more convenient, affordable and safer.Keeping this in mind, Asif Bhamla, President, Bhamla Foundation, has roped in Akshay Kumar as the MCGM’s good health ambassador by getting the superstar to bring to life, Jaanbachao campaign and wants every citizen not to be his own enemy and protect himself against diseases. Directed by Rajkumr Hirani, the campaign is a unique initiative by the foundation and MCGM.This Goodhealth campaign follows the TB Harega Desh Jeetega campaign with Bill Milanda Gates Foundation, featuring Amitabh Bachchan to essay character of the common man.Bhamla, who is known for his philanthrophic activities, is known for his support to environmental and humanitarian causes. The current campaign sees Akshay bring out the fitness consciousness is the common man, and will be launched by Devendra Fadnavis, Hon Chief Minister of Maharashtra.Says Rajkumar Hirani, “It is often that we ignore our health with overwork and stress coupled with a sedentary lifestyle. When Bhamla Foundation brought to me the idea of the MCGM campaign for Good Health, I was elated. It is a great move and I am glad we have a face like Akshay Kumar for the same. The idea is to make each of us stand up and let the sedentary lifestyle go and save ourselves before it is too late. I enjoyed the making as much as I wish we change mindsets with this video.”Adds Asif Bhamla, “we lose health for half our lives earning wealth, and the other half we lose wealth to get good health. This campaign aims to shake us from our couch potato roots and get us to get out there and do something now. Who else could be a perfect ambassador than Akshay Kumar? And when it came to direction, we could think of no one better than Rajkumar Hirani. I am glad, both agreed and the Chief Minister is gracious enough to give the nod to launch the same. We hope this campaign goes a long way in helping not just Mumbaikars but each global citizen stay healthy.”Considering that researchers estimate that if only 10 per cent of those who are currently inactive started to exercise, 533,000 lives would be saved; if 25 per cent began moving, 1.3 million deaths could be averted, with just 30 minutes of brisk walking or cycling five days a week, we would like this initiative to surely make a difference.

Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal Moved By ‘31st October’

Writer-producer Harry Sachdeva, whose dramatic thriller ‘31 October’ starring Vir Das and Soha Ali Khan released this weekend, had organized a special screening of the film for Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and other MLAs and reportedly, the film got a majorly positive response from everyone.
Confirming the same, Harry said, “I am extremely honored that the CM took time to watch 31 October.  His government in Delhi is taking some right steps to address the issue of the delayed justice to victims of the 1984 anti-Sikh pogrom and I want the support of both State and Central Government to ensure that at least now the victims get justice.  His appreciation of the film matters a lot and I am happy to see him moved as the film ended.”
On his part, Jarnail Singh, an AAP MLA, who had thrown a shoe at India’s then Home Minister P. Ch

idambaram in 2009 for giving a clean chit to 1984 riots accused Jagdish Tytler, said, “I had come for the screening but couldn’t watch the film for long as it raked old wounds and I got emotionally overwhelmed. However, I would urge each and every one of you to watch this film as it will send across a message that violence and bloodshed is never an answer to any issue.”
‘31 October’ revolved around the struggles of a Sikh family, which is trapped in a riot zone in Delhi in the aftermath of the assassination of the then Prime Minister Indira Gandhi. Produced by writer-producer Harry Sachdeva and Magical Dreams Productions Pvt Ltd, , co-produced by Anand Prakash, directed by National award winner Shivaji Lotan Patil, and released by Panorama Studios, ‘31 October’ is a glimpse into the  controversial dark chapter of India’s History.

AKKI IS INDIA’S GOODHEALTH AMBASSADOR

Recent researches tag global figures on account of sedentary lifestyle deaths are an alarming  5.3m, terming it pandemic, equating to about one in 10 deaths from diseases such as heart disease, diabetes and breast and colon cancer. The Lancet study found people in higher income countries were the least active among the worst, as nearly two-thirds of adults were judged not to be doing enough. Habitual inactivity raises risks for obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, deep-vein thrombosis, and metabolic syndrome among many others.
