किस्मत (१९४३) में अशोक कुमार के बचपन की भूमिका की थी महमूद ने

आज मशहूर हास्य अभिनेता महमूद की पुण्य तिथि (२३ जुलाई २००४) है।  उनका ७१ साल की उम्र में देहांत हुआ था।  वह लतीफुन्निसा के एक्टर-डांसर मुमताज़ अली के आठ बच्चों में से दूसरे  नंबर के थे।   चूंकि, फ़िल्मी पृष्ठभूमि से थे, पिता ४० और ५० के दशक में फिल्म इंडस्ट्री के बड़े नाम थे, इसलिए उनको अभिनय का चस्का लगना ही था।  बॉम्बे टॉकीज की फिल्म किस्मत (१९४३) में उन्होंने अशोक कुमार के बचपन का रोल किया था।  फिल्मों में काम पाने के लिए उन्होंने काफी पापड बेले।  मीना कुमारी के टेबल टेनिस कोच से वह मीना कुमारी के बहनोई बने।  राजकुमार संतोषी के पिता पीएल संतोषी के ड्राइवर बने।  मीना कुमारी की बहन मधु से शादी करने के बाद खुद को सेटल करने के लिए उन्होने दो बीघा ज़मीन और प्यासा जैसी फिल्मों में छोटी भूमिकाएं की।  अपने कॉमेडियन के क्षेत्र में घोर प्रतिद्वंद्वी जॉनी वॉकर से उनकी अच्छी छनती थी।  अरुणा ईरानी के साथ उनके रोमांस की खबरे शादी तक पहुंची।  शुरूआती दौर में अमिताभ बच्चन की मदद करने वाले महमूद ही थे।  उन्होंने अपने घर में अमिताभ को कमरा दिया।  राहुल देव बर्मन उर्फ़ पंचम दा को पहला ब्रेक छोटे नवाब में महमूद ने ही दिया था।  महमूद वास्तव में तमिल ओरिजिन के थे।  उनके दादा अर्कोट के नवाब थे।  इसीलिए महमूद अपनी फिल्मों के किरदारों में तमिल उच्चारण का बहुधा उपयोग किया करते थे।  उन्होंने सात फिल्मों भूत बंगला, कुंवारा बाप, जीनी और जॉनी, दो दिलवाले, एक बाप छह बेटे, जनता हवलदार और दुश्मन दुनिया का निर्देशन किया।

Chidiyaghar introduces ‘Hen-Man’

Sony SAB’s Chidiyaghar is known for its hilarious story plots which not only makes the audiences laugh, but also teaches them the moral values that we could follow in our day-to-day life. The upcoming track in chidiyghar will showcase a hilarious track on Kapi, where he gets super power and becomes a super hero. 
The track opens with Kapi (Saransh Verma) taking his kids Makhi and Machar for a new movie ‘Hanu-Man’ in a theatre. But the show goes housefull with a lot of crowd around. Kappi picks up a fight with a stranger who trashes Kapi. Machar and Makhi are crestfallen with their father’s defeat. Feeling sad, Machar goes to sleep and he dreams that he is praying to God to bestow his father Kapi with superpowers and defeat all. Next morning, when everyone look out for Kapi, they are amazed to see him flying up above in the sky. His kids are ecstatic to realize that God had granted their father supernatural powers. Neighbours too get surprised when they come to know about the same and start worshipping him. 
How will Kapi use his new found superpower? Is it a temporary superpower or for lifetime?

Saransh Verma who plays the role of Kapi said, “This is a very funny yet interesting track. Kapi turns into Hen-Man who receives all power to defeat people around him. This leads to hilarious situation where chidiyaghar member take advantage of his powers. He becomes arrogant and starts misusing his power.”

Not only Farhan Akhtar, even Milkha Singh could be proud of The Faith Runner

When Farhan Akhtar brilliantly transformed himself for the epic Milkha Singh-movie Bhaag Milkha Bhaag, it was a delight to watch his wondrous feat. But not all achievers get the mileage Bollywood stars get. 
Like what Samir Singh is doing for a hundred days is yet another mind-boggling adventure in itself. Samir is not an actor, nor is he prepping for a movie. He's purely a runner and like all runners, in awe of the legendary Milkha Singh — The Flying Sikh. And because of Samir's strong spiritual beliefs and his faith in Lord Krishna, he’s fondly called The Faith Runner. 
Around three months ago, the ultra marathoner embarked on an inconceivable journey of pushing human endurance to the extreme. He undertook a mission to run 100 kilometers every day for 100 days within Mumbai, covering a total distance of 10,000 kilometers. 
Such an extraordinary feat has never been attempted before by any long distance runner anywhere in the world — which makes Samir the first to conceive and attempt this grueling format in distance running. As of this week, he has successfully completed 80 days. 
Moreover, he has been accomplishing this run without help from any support group, organization, physiotherapist, masseur, dietitian, nutritionist or media coverage. The only support he has had until now is from his younger brother who cooks for him and some contributions from his well-wishers in the running community. 
Interestingly for Samir, filmmakers Vikram and Vandana Bhatti, a brother-sister duo of Marathon Films, who happen to be running enthusiasts too, have begun a Facebook campaign called The Faith Runner (with the unique title coined by Vikram Bhatti). www.facebook.com/TheFaithRunner/. 

Here's hoping that more and more people of the world come together to celebrate, salute and applaud this unsung athlete as he creates history.

The festival of Teej brings the cast of &TV’s BadhoBahu and Waaris together

Teej is the festival that brings out a furor amongst married women who celebrate this wholeheartedly. But this doesn’t seem to be the case with the bahusBadho (RytashaRathore) and Preet (Farnaz Shetty) of &TV’s BadhoBahu and Waaris respectively. While Badho’sLuckyji (Prince Narula) is away in Punjab, Preet and Raj (Neel Motwani) aren’t looking eye to eye. But the two couples come together at a TeejMela in a Mahasangam which will soon air on &TV! 
In a quest to get Badho and Lucky a little closer to each other, ChotoBua (JuhiAslam) kidnaps Badho and takes her to Punjab to meet Lucky and celebrate her fist ever Teej. On the other hand, Raj’s mother forces Raj and Preet to follow the rituals of Teej as the newly married couple. And when the two couples meet each other at the TeejMela, they bring with them a flavor of masti, dance and drama galore promising an exciting time for the audience. 
Farnaz Shetty who is known for her portrayal of a firebrand Preet, will be seen performing a special dance number on ‘La La Ho Gayi Re’ in a traditional sharara just like a typical Punjabi kudi. Not just that, the couples will be seen rocking the Mela on ‘Patiyala Peg LagaKe’ amidst much fanfare and aplomb! 
Said Farnaz Shetty “It was great fun having the cast of BadhoBahu on our set. Rytasha and I instantly bonded which made the long hours go by quicker than expected. I must admit, it was the dancing that truly tested us, but we had a great time grooving to the beats notwithstanding the torrential rains and the wind.” 
From mehendi to dance, music and romantic scenes on the trationaljhoola bedecked with flowers, this Teej celebration is nothing short of a scene from a Blockbuster Hindi Movie! Will this festival of Teej bring Badho-Lucky and Raj-Preet together? 

Watch the drama unfold on Friday, 21st July, 9:30pm onwards, only on &TV!

Three giants-Qyuki Digital, Shaadi.com & UnErase Poetry question the norms of marriage system in India by presenting Aranya Johar's poem

In Qyuki’s continuous endeavor to support and encourage unique talent, it’s latest association with Aranya Johar speaks true to the cause.   Known as a young writer, poet and performer  with Unerase Poetry. The campaign in association with the World’s No. 1 Matchmaking Service Shaadi.com is an expression of a girl’s struggle with the societal  norms and conventions about body, shape and complexion. 
In just 2 minutes, the poem portrays gamut of feelings and emotions on how girls are burdened with stereotypical notions on their body type and skin tone.  Although the poem is penned and recited by a girl, it fairly balances the judgments framed about boys and men as well.
Aranya started her poetic journey at the tender age of 11 and her piece ‘A Brown Girl’s Guide to Gender’ hit a staggering 1 million views within two days of its upload and is currently over 30 million and counting. This time through “A Brown Girl’s Guide to Beauty” Aranya strives to speak aloud about the set norms by the media and the society. 
An innovative initiative started by standup comedian and poet Simar Singh, UnErase Poetry is a bilingual medium that creates and promotes spoken word poetry. The digital creators are at the forefront of bringing about a change in the society about the regressive concepts such as taboos on menstruation, human trafficking,  marital rape and many such relevant and important subjects. 
Sharing his thoughts, Simar Singh said “This campaign is an effort to bring awareness of how skin tone of a girl shouldn’t be a parameter to marry her.  Aranya has done remarkable work with her poem. We have the befitting partners with Shaadi.com and with Qyuki Digital being the platform, we are rest assured for it to reach out to its audience.” 
Sagar Gokhale, the content head, expressed “Qyuki has always stood for change and we are glad to be associated with such a unique talent as Aranya’s. Her poetic form has formed a bond with viewers and we want to strengthen it. We are glad to showcase the power of such an impressive talent. 

According to CEO Gourav Rakshit, Shaadi.com, "The bias against complexion and body type is something that exists within our society at large. While eliminating this mindset is a long way off, this is our first step to help people look beyond and really get to know a person before making their decision. It’s only fair to give finding love a fair chance!”

Sizzling chemistry between Karan and Sweety- Mubarakan





Nawazuddin Siddiqui to match the dance steps of the dance guru Tiger Shroff in 'Munna Michael'

Munna Michael, an upcoming Indian action dance film directed by Sabbir Khan and produced by Viki Rajani is all set to create a buzz. The film features Tiger Shroff in a lead role alongside Nidhhi Agerwal and Nawazuddin Siddiqui. And the entire cast of the film recently promoted their upcoming flick in Delhi.
On being asked about the preparation and difficulty level of the role, Nawaz said, "I can't dance like tiger and that's for sure but I have tried my best. No role is easy you have to prepare for all but dancing was new for me. It was no less than a horrible experience for me to dance. Tiger dances with such ease and if I could do even 1% equal to him, then it will be a big achievement for me. I was very scared but it was a kind of experiment."
Nawaz also commented on the hardships he faced in the industry and said, "I was always demotivated by all because of my looks be it at my hometown or office workplace and these things are everywhere. I don't know why they exist but they are there."
On being asked about his experience with Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Tiger said, "When I first went on the set I was hell scared because he is such a talented actor and it's quite intimidating for a new comer because you remember his work from Badlapur and Gangs of Wasseypur but when you actually meet the man he's such a lovely and normal person but you see a sudden transformation on screen when he gets into the character. I am blessed that I got to work with him at an early stage of my career."
On being asked about the one thing that he has never done before for a movie, Tiger said, "There's more than one thing, I have learnt many major variations in dance and I have got an opportunity to work with Nawaz sir and with the new comer opposite to me when I am not a new comer now. I tried to observe whatever I could. He then added that, "I would like to explore more as an actor I would also like to work in a musical like La La land."
Nidhhi on being asked about her experience said, "It was really great working with both the actors and there was a lot to learn from them. And I am blessed that I got to work with them."
They also launched an app based on the movie named Munna Michael dance and run. The story is about a young man from the streets, called Munna (Tiger Shroff), who from a young age was a big fan of Michael Jackson. Mahinder Fauji (Nawazuddin Siddiqui) is a gangster who aspires to dance. The film is slated to release on 21 July 2017.

अमिताभ बच्चन की फ्लॉप फिल्मों के साथ ख़त्म मनमोहन देसाई और प्रकाश मेहरा

अमिताभ बच्चन के कथित सुपरस्टारडम के पीछे दो फिल्म निर्माता निर्देशकों की फिल्मों का ख़ास योगदान है। यह दो  निर्माता हैं प्रकाश मेहरा और मनमोहन देसाई।  प्रकाश मेहरा की फिल्म ज़ंजीर ने लगातार  फ्लॉप फिल्म दे रहे अमिताभ बच्चन के पैर फिल्म इंडस्ट्री में जमा दिए।  उनका एंग्री यंग मैन बॉलीवुड फिल्मों की कहानियों के इमोशनल नायकों पर भारी पड़ने लगा।  ज़ंजीर के चार साल बाद, मनमोहन देसाई ने अमिताभ बच्चन को लेकर अपनी पहली फिल्म अमर अकबर अन्थोनी बनाई।  इसके बाद इन दोनों फिल्मकारों ने अमिताभ बच्चन के साथ परवरिश, सुहाग, नसीब, देश प्रेमी, कुली, मर्द, हेरा फेरी, मुकद्दर का सिकंदर, लावारिस, नमक हलाल और शराबी जैसी सुपर हिट फ़िल्में बनाई।  इन फिल्मों ने अमिताभ बच्चन को सुपर स्टार, मेगा स्टार, वन मैन इंडस्ट्री जैसे न जाने कितने खिताब दिलवाए।  लेकिन, इन दोनों ही फिल्मकारों का करियर अमिताभ बच्चन के साथ फ्लॉप फिल्मे देने के साथ ही ख़त्म हो गया।  पहले मिडास टच रखने वाले मनमोहन देसाई गए।  उनकी अमिताभ बच्चन के साथ फिल्म गंगा जमुना सरस्वती २९ दिसंबर १९८८ को रिलीज़ हुई।  इस फिल्म में अमिताभ बच्चन के साथ मिथुन चक्रवर्ती, मीनाक्षी शेषाद्रि, जयाप्रदा, अमरीश पूरी और निरूपा राय भी साथ दे रहे थे।   उस समय मिथुन चक्रवर्ती अपने डांस के कारण
भारतीय माइकल जैक्सन बने हुए थे।  उम्मीद की जाती थी कि यह स्टार कास्ट एक सफल फिल्म देगी।  फिर तीन साल पहले ही तो मनमोहन देसाई ने कुली जैसी हिट फिल्म दी थी।  लेकिन, हुआ बिलकुल उल्टा।  यह फिल्म पूरे हिंदुस्तान में २७० थिएटरों में रिलीज़ हुई।  लेकिन, दो हफ़्तों में ही बॉक्स ऑफिस ने फिल्म के धराशाई होने का ऐलान कर दिया।  गंगा जमुना सरस्वती ने जहाँ पहले हफ्ते में १२.७६ लाख के कलेक्शन के साथ ९५ प्रतिशत की दर्शक संख्या बटोरी।  वहीँ दूसरे हफ्ते में यह फिल्म २८ प्रतिशत की दर्शक संख्या में आ गई।  उस समय किसी फिल्म के लिए आठ हफ़्तों तक ७५ प्रतिशत बिज़नेस करना ज़रूरी होता था, ताकि हिट का टैग मिल सके। १९८९ अमिताभ बच्चन, प्रकाश मेहरा और मनमोहन देसाई के करियर के लिए खतरनाक साबित हुआ।  इस साल मनमोहन देसाई के बैनर की फिल्म तूफ़ान और प्रकाश मेहरा की फिल्म जादूगर रिलीज़ हुई।  कहा जाता है कि जादूगर और तूफ़ान एक ही दिन रिलीज़ हुई थी।  लेकिन, वास्तविकता यह नहीं है। तूफ़ान ३ जुलाई १९८९ को रिलीज़ हुई, जबकि जादूगर २५ अगस्त १९८९ को रिलीज़ हुई थी।  लेकिन, बॉक्स ऑफिस पर दोनों का हश्र एक सा हुआ।  यह दोनों फ़िल्में काफी बड़ी और दर्शकों की नब्ज़ पहचानने वाले फिल्मकारों की फ़िल्में थी। हालाँकि,  तूफ़ान के डायरेक्टर मनमोहन देसाई नहीं थे।  इस फिल्म का डायरेक्शन  मनमोहन देसाई के बेटे  केतन देसाई  कर रहे थे, जिनका  फिल्म अल्लाह रक्खा से फ्लॉप डेब्यू हुआ था।  उम्मीद की जा रही थी कि तूफ़ान  केतन का करियर संवार देगी।  लेकिन यह फिल्म बॉक्स ऑफिस पर औंधे मुंह जा गिरी।  इसके बाद जादूगर रिलीज़ हुई।  जादूगर उस प्रकाश मेहरा की फिल्म थी, जिसने अमिताभ बच्चन के साथ शराबी जैसी हिट फिल्म बनाई थी।  लेकिन, प्रकाश मेहरा और अमिताभ बच्चन की जोड़ी का जादू नहीं चला।  जादूगर भी बॉक्स ऑफिस पर बुरी तरह से असफल ही।   गंगा जमुना सरस्वती और तूफ़ान के बाद जादूगर अमिताभ बच्चन की तीसरी बड़ी असफलता थी।  इस फिल्म के फ्लॉप होने के बाद अमिताभ बच्चन का करियर ख़त्म मान लिया गया था। मैं आज़ाद हूँ की असफलता ने इसकी पुष्टि जैसी कर दी थी। अब यह बात दीगर है कि  आज का अर्जुन और हम ने अमिताभ बच्चन के करियर को नई दिशाएं दे दी।  लेकिन, उन्हें सुपर स्टार बनाने वाले प्रकाश मेहरा और मनमोहन देसाई का फिल्म करियर बिलकुल ख़त्म हो गया।
