Talking about the concert, Harshi enthusiastically stated, “I am super excited to be a part of these concerts in UK, which is my home. Sharing stage with Mika Singh and Daler Mahendi is a big deal for me. I recently worked with Mika on a film song, Raat Saturday Kiv hai but sharing stage with him to a live audience is euphoric. Well for this one I also get to perform with Daler Mehendi and his shows have always been total sell out. Both these singers are stalwarts, I’m sure this would be a great learning experience for me”.

 

Harshi will be supporting both Mika and Daler Mehendi with their tracks and sing a few numbers from her crop of hit tours and current playback numbers Jaeger Bomb from the recent release Tum Bin 2 & Raat Saturday Ki Hain with Mika. The collaboration with the Daler Mehendi and Mika is not only a concert for Harshi but also a way to connect with Bollywood lovers across the world.

 

“Harshi brings in a lot of energy to my songs. I think we have a great working equation, mujhe uske saath kaam karne mein kaafi mazaa aata hai. Kaafi Chulbuli hai, she is always a fire on stage and I have full faith in her talent. The girl is here to stay, mark my words”, said Mika, while waiting backstage to break into his gig with Harshi.

 

“I grew up at a place which is quite close to the Wembley Arena and I had this secret dream of performing there. In my head this place is sacred. I feel a huge surge of job satisfaction today cause I’m getting to perform here with two of the biggest names in music. Is this real? I need to pinch myself”, signed off Harshi.

From insights into the mind of a suicidal patient and understanding why one is driven to suicide to the right kind of intervention when suicide has been attempted and a list of suicide hotlines, this book is an attempt to help thousands who are questioning the motive of their life.

Special Feature on Rogue One: A Star wars story


“Rogue One” tells the story of a group of unlikely heroes, who in a time of conflict band together on a mission to steal the plans to the Death Star, the Empire’s ultimate weapon of destruction. This key event in the Star Wars timeline brings together ordinary people who choose to do extraordinary things, and in doing so, become part of something greater than themselves.

Academy ® and BAFTA Award nominee Felicity Jones ( heads up the cast and stars opposite Diego Luna. Joining them are Ben Mendelsohn, Mads Mikkelsen, Alan Tudyk, Riz Ahmed, and Academy Award® winner Forest Whitaker.) Directed by Gareth Edwards, Rogue One releases in India on the 16th of December, 2016.

Thanks to Disney, there’ll be a Star Wars film every year until at least 2020, and now that Rogue One is due for its December release, fans are palpable with excitement guessing on which memorable characters will appear in the film! We take you through to the top most anticipated and rumored cameos in Rogue One:

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

  1. R2-D2: The biggest hero in all of Star Wars? Given the huge part he’s played in the downfall of the Empire, and the lives he’s saved along the way, it’s hard to argue with saying it’s R2-D2. He’s such a key figure in the Star Wars universe, and fits in the timeline, fans are hoping for the bot to have an appearance in this one!
  2. C3PO: If R2-D2 is a key part of the Star Wars universe, then that goes just as much for C-3PO. Despite his oblivious nature, C-3PO has played a pivotal role inthe Galaxy’s history, appearing under the service of Shmi Skywalker, the Lars homestead,Padmé Amidala, Raymus Antilles, Luke Skywalker, and Leia Organa.
  3. Princess Leia: Leia has already appeared on Star Wars Rebels, so she was definitely part of the Rebel Alliance long before the events of A New Hope. Fans are hoping to see Leia in command of a Rebel control centre, helping to organise the attack.
  4. Boba Fett: The have been numerous rumours and reports that Boba Fett would either be getting his own spin-off movie, appearing in the Han Solo movie, or most recently having a part to play in Rogue One. He’s by far the most recognisable bounty hunter around, and a massive fan favourite. This is one that seems to have some ground, thanks to a leaked Lego box image that appears to show Slave 1 in Rogue One.
  5. Bail Organa: Jimmy Smits, who played Bail Organa in “Attack of the Clones” and “Revenge of the Sith,” confirmed that he will show up in “Rogue One.” Star Wars fans will know that Bail Organa was the adoptive father to Princess Leia.
  6. Darth Vader: Princess Leia’s biological father Darth Vader is already shown in the trailer. James Earl Jones will             be back to voice the character again, which isn’t too much of a surprise given he is so crucial to the role, and has already              returned to it for Star Wars Rebels.

 

  1. Han Solo: Rumours are abound that Han Solo will have a small cameo to introduce the new actor playing a young                  version of the character, before his own spin-off movie in 2018, perhaps interacting with the Rebel spies or even bounty              hunters, which would fit with the timeline and the debt he owes to Jabba the Hutt.

           Who do you want to see cameo in Rogue One?

Director Villeneuve does not like anything that doesn’t exist, especially VFX!


 

Director Dennis Villeneuve’s dream of shooting a sci-fi film has come true with his space related movie ‘Arrival’ hits the theaters on November 25 this year. Just before the release of this much awaited film, he has revealed a very astonishing fact about the shoot. Talking about his love for sci-fi films, the acclaimed director revealed that he is not fond of VFX and has used the absolute bare minimum in this film!

“I don’t like green screens,” says Villeneuve about some of the challenges he gave production design and how he tried to minimize the use of visual effects, and create physical experiences for the actors, as much as possible. “I don’t like the actors to be in contact with something that doesn’t exist, I like them to be surrounded by something real.”

Adding on, he also said  “I asked Patrice (production designer) to build the interior of this spaceship, That was a big gift for the production because we were able to create the massive tunnel and the chamber. There were no visual effects—it is all real—and the actors were able to feel the strangeness of that room.”

Now that’s quite surprising!

We can’t wait to catch the movie in theaters on 25th November ’16.

The 22-year old has been exclusively signed by leading record label, Universal Music Group. The major has launched Ananya’s musical career with the release of the single “Livin’ the life” now available globally through its network.

At a glittering evening in Mumbai on Saturday, Ananya Birla’s single was launched amidst a host of celebrities and some exciting entertainment! Featuring Illusionists, street dancers and even a sand artist, Ananya Birla made her sensational debut performance on stage, belting out her single “Livin’ the Life”.

 

The highly infectious and up-tempo pop / dance single is produced and co-written by Internationally acclaimed music producer Jim Beanz who has previously worked with global superstars Nelly Furtado Cheryl Cole, Demi Lovato, Jason Derulo to name a few.  “Livin’ the life” was recorded at Sunset Sound Studio, Pennsylvania.

 

Says ANANYA “With Livin’ the life, I am following my dream. I’ve always loved music, and making music. The song is about finding who you are, because I believe that only by doing that, will you find happiness. For me I discovered I needed to try to spread love to others. For other people it might mean something else – playing football or looking at the sea. I believe that if you discover who you are really are, you can overcome any challenge.”

 

With love for music since childhood, Ananya has been inspired by a number of International artists such as Ed Sheeran, The Fray, Cheryl Cole, Eminem, AR Rahman and Coldplay. Her debut single “Livin’ the life” features a strong point of view for those who walk through life seeking their own true path. The song demonstrates Ananya’s drive, creativity, passion to help others overcome challenges. Her hope is that its heart-felt lyrics, melodies and dance-inducing rhythms, will inspire the same spirit of self-realization among listeners.

 

The music video of the song, shot on the beautiful Santa Catalina Island in California, is equally inspiring as it showcases a visual representation of the song’s impactful theme. The video is directed by international director ROCK JACOBS whose previous work includes music videos for Skrillex, Marilyn Manson, Lil Wayne, The Game, Ice Cube, The Vamps, J Cole, Iyaz and Rick Ross.

Ananya Birla’s debut International single “Livin’ the life” is now available worldwide across digital platforms exclusively on Universal Music Group.
