Sunny Leone sends out a message on Breast Cancer


Apart from October being known for the famous Oktober fest in Europe, in India we wish to stand for something more significant. For the uninitiated, October is observed as ‘International Breast Cancer Awareness Month’.

As part of its Public Service Campaign, AurDikhao, a digital media channel in association with Dr Aneel Murarka and Manish Murarka – promoters of Ample Missiion Events Entertainment and more LLP have developed a full-fledged campaign called #DetectToDefeat.

The campaign features renowned Bollywood Sunny Leone giving an appealing message looking in the mirror. The video also features various characters a women interacts with on a day-to-day basis who go has to deal with perverts who stare at her breasts.

Research says breast cancer is one of the fastest rising cancer types amongst women. More than half of the cases are detected in stage 3 or 4, thus inhibiting any chances for cure. According to data prepared by Breast Cancer India, the number of young people being diagnosed with breast cancer is on the rise. 25 years ago, out of 100 patients, only 2% were between 20-30 years old and 7% were between 30-40 years old. Currently, 4% are between  20-30 and 16% are between 30-40 years old.

“In February this year, Sunny featured in our viral anti-smoking campaign titled ‘11 Minutes’ that received 4 million hits in 4 days. We had great time working with her. She’s an absolute sport and in the whole process she’s as much part of the campaign as we are. When we pitched this idea to her, she was excited to work on this campaign. Given her stature as a public influencer, her endeavour will definitely create impact among the people for the breast cancer awareness. We hope men and women will spread this to loved ones leading to call for action” said Aditya Bhat, Founder of Business Of Ideas that manages digital channel Aur Dikhao.

The campaign, in association with Facebook initiated updating their profile pictures with a breast cancer badge- pink ribbon along with a message Detect To Defeat. Sunny was amongst the first to update her profile picture to support the cause.

Tum Bin 2’s 007 connection


‘Tum Bin 2’, the romantic saga is already creating waves across the country and fans are eagerly awaiting for the film’s release. And now there is something  more that all the fans can watch out for in the film.

The quintessential romantic sequence, had to have the best location to go along the mood of the film. Although it was a difficult challenge for the makers of the film to create a perfect romantic aura for the film, Anubhav Sinha, the director of the film, while doing the recce, drove for several hours from Glasgow to Glencoe in search of a suitable venue in Scotland.

Coincidentally, he chose the same spot that was used to film a dramatic sequence for ‘Skyfall’ that starred Daniel Craig and Judi Dench. The scene in ‘Tum Bin 2’ features newcomer Aditya Seal, who did not want to miss the opportunity of taking a picture at the iconic spot. The sequence was shot on a bright sunny day with clear skies unlike the one with dreary sky in ‘Skyfall’. The popular road is now called the ‘Skyfall road’.

As Anubhav recollects, it was one of the most memorable experience of the entire shoot schedule.

Tum Bin 2, which is  jointly produced by Bhushan Kumar and Anubhav Sinha, who has also written & directed the film is set to release on 18th November 2016.
