In an extraordinary recording career that took off in 1967 with their hit single, “New York Mining Disaster 1941,” and continued into the 21st Century with their final album, This Is Where I Came In, in 2001, The Bee Gees – brothers Barry, Robin and Maurice Gibb – sold more than 220 million records worldwide and earned their stature as one of the biggest selling groups of all time.  Recording 22 studio albums and numerous soundtracks – including the monumentally-successful and best-selling soundtrack of all time, Saturday Night Fever – The Bee Gees infused popular culture with dozens of worldwide hit singles that featured their singular and highly-influential three-part harmonies.  They achieved nine #1 and 23 Top-Ten singles on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, including “How Deep Is Your Love,” “Night Fever,” and “Stayin’ Alive” from Saturday Night Fever, plus “How Can You Mend A Broken Heart,” “I Started A Joke” “One,” “Lonely Days,” “Words,” and numerous other classics. 
Their soundtrack to Saturday Night Fever is one of the biggest-selling and culturally significant albums of all time, having sold more than 40 million copies around the world, spawned four Bee Gees global hits and reinvigorated the trio’s earlier hits “Jive Talkin’” and “You Should Be Dancing.”  The album was added to the National Recording Registry in the Library of Congress in 2013 for long-term preservation, having been cited for its cultural, artistic and historic importance. 

Among the countless awards and accolades bestowed upon The Bee Gees are eight Grammy Awards, five American Music Awards, a Brit Award for Outstanding Contribution to Music and a Legend Award from the World Music Awards.  They have been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, the Songwriters Hall of Fame, the Vocal Group Hall of Fame and the Dance Music Hall of Fame.  All three brothers were appointed Commanders in the Order of the British Empire in 2001.

Director Manish Tiwary back with ISSAQ team for his next titled Chidiakhana; SHOOTING OF CLIMAX FOOTBALL MATCH

Present on the set were Ravi Kishen,Prashant Narayanan, Rajeshwari Sachdev, Govind Namdev,Ravi gossain with Ritwik Sahore (Dangal fame) as young Bihari football player who lands at a Marathi dominated chawl in Mumbai
Director Manish Tiwary is shooting his sports film titled Chidiakhana in various locations of Mumbai as varied as Piarel chawls to Girgaum chowpatty to old Port areas in Ray Road. Tiwary feels authentic locations are key to giving life and soul of the film. The film is based around the game of football and one of the key locations is the playground that the matches are played on. The crew of the film had seen more than a dozen grounds from those in south Mumbai to Chembur to Nalasopara only to find that a society ground at Four Bungalows in Andheri perfectly suits the film!
Titled Chidiakhana the film is about, a Bihari teenager who lands up in a Marathi chawl with his mother. The boy has a passion for football and is trying to get a place in the BMC football team and the mother-son duo face many difficulties when a local Marathi gangster comes to their rescue and gives wings to their modest dreams.
Said Manish Tiwary, “Time seemed perfect for this subject as my film is set against sport backdrop. Sports films is current flavour and is finding better acceptance amongst audience. It is also set in Mumbai and has very real locations. Fourteen-year Sooraj has a fantastical way of looking at the world. Everyone is an animal in his world, a Chidiakhana, where he is yet to find his place. His first introduction itself rubs the class-bully Babu the wrong way – for he is a Bihari among a largely Marathi gang. All this makes it impossible for him to shine in the game of football, his ultimate dream. Films and sports both need a great team to succeed and am happy to have found one.“
Director Manish Tiwary who has earlier directed films Dil Dosti Etc and ISSAQ takes off on an absolutely diverse premise this time. The cast list inlcudes Ritwik Sahore, the boy from Ferrari ki Sawari and Dangal, along with Prashant Narayanan, Rajeshwari Sachdev, Ravi Kishan, Anjan Shrivastava, Govind Namdev, among others.

Sujoy Ghosh and Vidya Balan are back after four years. In 2012, this director and actor duo amazed everyone with the terrific story ‘Kahaani’ being perfectly portrayed by Vidya Balan.  Balan who started her acting career with television show 'Hum Paanch' might have never thought that she would come out with such flying colors. After proving her acting skills in films like 'Parineeta', 'The Dirty Picture', 'Bhool Bhulaiyya' and others she has now thrilled everyone with her unconventional acting in the promos of 'Kahaani 2'. After the trailer release, people still fail to speculate the story just like the part 1.  
This time joining the talented team will be Arjun Rampal and we wonder with such amazing collaboration, the film is surely going to be a hit in the theaters. Arjun Rampal whose last musical flick 'Rock on 2' couldn't do well at the box office when asked if demonetization would effect 'Kahaani 2', he answered "When a script is good then people are bound to watch the film. I believe that the step is taken for the betterment of our country. Lose and gain go together so sufferings are temporary but the result will be fruitful"
Vidya Balan who will be seen as two different personalities in the film, first where she will be playing a helpless mother looking for her kidnapped daughter on the other hand she is charged for kidnapping and murdering. When asked about her experience, she said "I am a very restless and impatient woman. I really like this genre. Acting in a thriller film is a roller coaster ride and is interesting to work on."

The film is not a sequel but another story will be told in this franchise said the director Sujoy Ghosh. Presented by Pen India Limited, the film will be releasing on 2nd December, 2016.

अपने सीरियलों से निकल जाने वाले एक्टर

कभी किसी पॉपूलर  सीरियल का कोई पॉपूलर चेहरा यकायक गायब हो जाता है या मार दिया जाता है।  दर्शक बेचैन हो उठता है उसकी नामौजूदगी से।  इधर कई पॉपुलर चेहरे टीवी सीरियल की कहानियों में मार दिए गए या कहीं बाहर चले गए।  साथ निभाना साथियां में अहम् का किरदार निभाने वाले अभिनेता मोहम्मद नाज़िम और यह रिश्ता क्या कहलाता है में नैतिक का किरदार निभाने वाले करण मेहरा गायब कर दिए गए।  यह दोनों पिछले ६-७ साल से अपने शो के पॉपुलर चेहरे थे।  इस कड़ी में इश्क़ का रंग सफ़ेद की धानी ईशा सिंह और टशन ए इश्क़ कुंज सिद्धांत गुप्ता के नामों को भी शामिल किया जा सकता है।  यह सितारे यकायक क्यों गायब हो गए टीवी स्क्रीन से ! बेशक, दूसरा अच्छा मौका ही पहला कारण था।  हालाँकि, करण मेहरा जैसे एक्टर ने खुद के बीमार होने का हवाला देते हुए शो छोड़ा था।  लेकिन आजकल वह बिग बॉस के घर के सदस्य बने नज़र आते हैं।  आइये जाने ऐसे ही कुछ नामों और उनसे जुड़े चेहरों को।
डांस के लिए टशन ए इश्क़ छोड़ा सिद्धांत गुप्ता ने
सिद्धांत गुप्ता ने ज़ी टीवी के सीरियल टशन ए इश्क़ से ही टीवी डेब्यू किया था। इस सीरियल में उन्होंने कुञ्ज का किरदार किया था।  दर्शकों ने ट्विंकल जास्मिन भसीन के साथ उनकी केमिस्ट्री को काफी पसंद भी किया था।  लेकिन सिद्धांत की निगाहें पहले ही दिन से किसी अच्छे मौके की तलाश में थी।  सिद्धांत अच्छे डांसर हैं।  डांस उनका शौक है।  इसलिए उन्हें जैसे ही झलक दिखला जा का ऑफर मिला, उन्होंने टशन ए  इश्क़ छोड़ने में कोई देर नहीं की।  उनई जगह नमन शॉ आ गए।
खराब स्वास्थ्य के बहाने
यह रिश्ता क्या कहलाता है के करण मेहरा ने कोई सात साल तक स्टार टीवी के इस सीरियल में नमन के रूप में एक पति, एक बेटे और एक पिता के भिन्न रूपों से दर्शकों को प्रभावित किया था।  सीरियल की 'अक्षरा' हिना खान के साथ उनकी जोड़ी ने काफी अवार्ड्स जीते।  इसके बावजूद करण मेहरा ने खराब स्वास्थ्य का बहाना बनाया।  अपनी बीवी से इमोशनल पत्र लिखवाए और एक दिन वह सीरियल छोड़  कर चल दिए।  हालाँकि प्रोड्यूसर उन्हें बनाये रहना चाहते थे।  टीवी पर नदारदगी के कुछ समय बाद करण मेहरा बिग बॉस सीजन १० में नज़र आने लगे।  उनकी जगह विशाल सिंह ने ले ली। भाबी जी घर पर है में भाभी जी के रूप में मशहूर शिल्पा शिंदे को शोहरत रास नहीं आई।  वह अपने सीरियल के निर्माताओं से अधिक मानदेय की मांग करने लगी।  उन्होंने परेशान किये जाने का आरोप भी लगाया।  यह मामला सिने एंड टेलीविज़न आर्टिस्ट्स एसोसिएशन के पास भी पहुंचा।  एसोसिएशन ने प्रोड्यूसर के पक्ष में फैसला दिया।  परंतु शिल्पा शिंदे बिमारी के बहाने भाबी जी घर पर हैं के सेट पर नहीं पहुंची।  निर्माताओं के  उन्हें कानूनी नोटिस का भी कोई नतीजा नहीं निकाला।  बाद में शिल्पा की जगह शुभांगी अत्रे आ गई।  अब यह बात दीगर है कि कानूनी लफड़े को भांप कर शिल्पा को द कपिल शर्मा शो में भी जगह नहीं मिली।
फिल्मों के लिए सीरियल छोड़ा
कभी कोई कलाकार फिल्म करने के लालच में आ कर अपने पॉपुलर सीरियल को छोड़ देता है।  ससुराल सिमर का की अविका गोर ने दक्षिण की फिल्मों के लिए सीरियल छोड़ दिया।  सीरियल बालिका बधु की बाल कलाकार आनंदी के बतौर ख्यात अविका गोर को सीरियल ससुराल सिमर का की रोली के तौर पर भी काफी शोहरत मिली।  इसी के नतीजे पर उन्हें दक्षिण की फिल्मों के प्रस्ताव भी मिलने लगे।  दक्षिण की फिल्मों में पैसों के मोह ने अविका को सीरियल से सोचा समझा ब्रेक लेने को मज़बूर कर दिया।  उनकी जगह मानसी श्रीवास्तव आ गई। अविका के अलावा देवों के देव महादेव में पार्वती का किरदार करने वाली सोनारिका भदौरिया ने भी दक्षिण की फिल्मों के लिए अपने मशहूर सीरियल देवों के देव महादेव को छोड़ दिया।  इसके लिए सोनारिका ने खूब पापड़ बेले।  पुरस्कार समारोहों में अंग प्रदर्शक पोशाकें पहन कर खुद को पार्वती के लिए अयोग्य जताने की कोशिश की।  सोनारिका की दक्षिण के बाद एक हिंदी हॉरर फिल्म साँसे द लास्ट ब्रेथ २५ नवम्बर को रिलीज़ होने जा रही है। अविका की तरह मोहम्मद नाज़िम ने भी पंजाबी फिल्म बिग डैडी के लिए सीरियल साथ निभाना साथिया के अहम के अहम् किरदार को भी अहमियत नहीं दी।  बाद में उन्होंने इस सीरियल में वापसी की।  चूंकि, उनके अहम् के किरदार को मार दिया गया था।  इसलिये नाज़िम को जग्गी के किरदार में वापसी मिली।
माँ नहीं बनना चाहती थी
कुछ कलाकार माता पिता का ऑन स्क्रीन किरदार नहीं करना चाहते थे।  इसलिए उन्होंने अपने पॉपुलर सीरियल के पॉपुलर किरदार को छोड़ने में देर नहीं की।   एक विधवा धानी के किरदार में सीरियल इश्क़ का रंग सफ़ेद की ईशा सिंह ने दर्शकों के दिलों में जगह बना ली थी।  धनी घर के विप्लव की इस गरीब विधवा से शादी की कहानी में पांच साल की छलांग आई थी।  धानी और विप्लव माता-पिता बन गए हैं।  ईशा सिंह को माँ बनना रास नहीं आया।  क्योंकि वह अभी सिर्फ १८ साल की हैं।  इसलिए ईशा सिंह ने लोकप्रियता के बावजूद इश्क़ का रंग सफ़ेद को अलविदा कह दिया।  अब धानी के किरदार में संजीदा शेख नज़र आ रही हैं।  जबकि ईशा सिंह एक था राजा एक थी रानी के दूसरे सीजन में दृष्टि धामी के रानी गायत्री के किरदार को कर रही हैं।
एक था राजा एक थी रानी की दृष्टि धामी- दृष्टि धामी को एक था राजा एक थी रानी छोड़ना सीरियल के लिहाज़ से ठीक नहीं रहा।  एक था राजा एक थी रानी में ट्विस्ट एंड टर्न की भरमार थी।  इसके बावजूद सीरियल दर्शकों को बहुत आकर्षित नहीं कर पा रहा था।  सीरियल में दृष्टि धामी रानी गायत्री का किरदार कर रही थी।  मेकर्स ने सीरियल को बचाने के ख्याल से इसमे लीप डाली।  गायत्री को अब माँ बन जाना है।  दृष्टि धामी को इतनी जल्दी माँ बनाना पसंद नहीं आया।  उन्होंने सीरियल को अलविदा कह दिया।  सीरियल निर्माताओं ने दृष्टि के हीरो सिद्धांत कार्णिक के किरदार को भी ख़तम कर दिया।  एक नई कहानी के साथ सीरियल को सीजन २ में शुरू किया गया।  इसी सीजन में रानी गायत्री के किरदार में ईशा सिंह आ गई।  दृष्टि धामी को आजकल परदेस में है मेरा दिल में नैना बत्रा के किरदार में देखा जा सकता है।
याद आते हैं टीवी सीरियलो के कई पॉपुलर चेहरे, जिन्होंने सीरियलो के अपने चरित्र की सफलता को अपनी सफलता समझ कर नखरे दिखाने शुरू किये थे।  इनमे क्योंकि सास भी कभी बहु थी के अमर उपाध्याय ख़ास उल्लेखनीय हैं।  उन्होंने तुलसी विरानी के किरदार के इर्द गिर्द घूमते इस सीरियल में अपने मिहिर विरानी के किरदार की सफलता को अपनी सफलता समझने की भयंकर भूल की थी।  वह फिल्म का हीरो बनाने के सपने बांधने लगे।  फिल्म मिली भी श्याम रामसे निर्देशित हॉरर फिल्म धुंध द फोग में वह अदिति गोवत्रीकर के नायक थे।  फिल्म बुरी तरह से फ्लॉप हुई।  अमर उपाध्याय के सर से फिल्मों का नशा उत्तर गया।  शायद इसीलिए साथ निभाना साथिया के मोहम्मद नाज़िम ने अपनी गलती कासुधार कर लिया।  वह पंजाबी फिल्म बिग डैडी के हीरो बनाने  के लिए साथ निभाना साथिया के अहम् के किरदार को छोड़ कर चले गए थे।  उन्होंने बिग डैडी की शूटिंग के बाद सीरियल में वापसी की कोशिश की।  लेकिन उस समय तक अहम् के किरदार की मौत हो चुकी थी।  नाज़िम को जग्गी के नए किरदार में ही वापस लिया गया।  लेकिन उनमे अब वह बात नज़र नहीं आती।
