Director, Sandeep Mohan & Tiranga Productions to release “Shreelancer” on 18th August


~Based on the story of a freelancer, the feature film is an adaptation of the people who are self-employed~

Director Sandeep Mohan’s next release, “Shreelancer” is a feature film starring Arjun Radhakrishnan (an actor known for his film “A White Feather”) in the lead along with a veteran theater artist Salmin Sheriff and Monica Mahendru. The film is produced by Giju John – Tiranga Productions Pvt. Ltd. and Sandeep Mohan and slated to hit the screens on 18th August 2017.

The film has background score by Vivek Philip and features songs by Ankur Tewari, Prateek Kuhad, Andrew Sloman and Natalie Matos. The film features one of the popular Indie song, “Dil Beparvah” by Ankur Tewari and Prateek Kuhad

The film is looking to be one of the best adaptation of the people who are self-employed.

Shreelancer, a 98-minute feature film is the contemporary take on the life of a freelancer in today’s India. Shreelancer follows Arjun Radhakrishnan (Shree), a Bangalore based mid 20’s freelance copywriter who is battling with nagging self-doubts about his artistic abilities. Shree belongs to a Maharashtrian family from Belgaum. He does ads for small time ad agencies, but is quite frustrated that the world doesn’t seem to understand or respect freelancers. Unable to concentrate at home, he visits various cafes to find his peace and works from there. Addicted to his cellphone and the social media, Shree’s worldview is shaped by what he reads online, not having traveled much in the “real” world. As fate would have it, Shree gets an invitation to attend an all-expenses paid trip to a college friend’s wedding. And life as he knows it will never be the same again for Shree. The film highlights the journey of a freelancer, despite having a flexible schedule, they work on deadlines, love to take up all jobs and seldom say “No” to any assignment.

Shreelancer had its World Film Festival Premiere at the prestigious New York Indian Film Festival (NYIFF) in May 2017 where it was nominated in the best screenplay category. The film was also screened at the Blue Whiskey International Film Festival on the 8th August 2017 where it has been selected in the competition category. Apart from this, Sandeep Mohan has conducted 30 screenings at spaces like Cafes, Pubs, Office Spaces, Coworker Spaces, Colleges, Homes, Art Galleries, etc. and convert them into

mini-theatres for the duration of the film. Sandeep conducts this screening under what he calls the “The Great Indian Travelling Cinema” experiment.

The film treatment is very different in terms of film making and the story line. The whole film was shot in a creative manner and executed as a guerrilla shoot by Sandeep Mohan. Shreelancer is the third feature film by Sandeep Mohan. His prior movies were Hola Venky & Love Wrinkle-free.

Thor star Chris Hemsworth was intimidated by Chris Pratt and wanted to impress Cate Blanchett!


The Actor speaks on his Thor and Avengers co-stars

Chris Hemsworth

Hollywood and Aussie hunk Chris Hemsworth stormed the big screen and made an unforgettable impression as the blonde hammer wielding handsome God in the Thorand Avengers  series of films, warming upto geeks, women and movie lovers everywhere.

 

In Marvel Studios’ “Thor: Ragnarok,” Thor is imprisoned on the other side of the universe without his mighty hammer and finds himself in a race against time to get back to Asgard to stop Ragnarok—the destruction of his homeworld and the end of Asgardian civilization—at the hands of an all-powerful new threat, the ruthless Hela. But first he must survive a deadly gladiatorial contest that pits him against his former ally and fellow Avenger—the Incredible Hulk!  “Thor: Ragnarok” thunders into theaters on 7th November.

While speaking on his on set experience for Chris revealed he was intimidated by another Chris aka Chris Pratt! When asked about the last time you were intimidated by another man, Hemsworth replied, “The first time I really met Chris Pratt—and went on set with him and the Guardians—I was weirdly shaken. [Laughs] I don’t know why. He’s just so charismatic. And good at what he does”

The actor also revealed his admiration for Thor Ragnorok co-star Cate Blanchett, saying the one thing you wouldnt expect from her is that “She calls you on your shit straightaway. Which is intimidating. You walk in and you’re doing all the usual polite chats, and she’s like, “Chris, what are you doing? Really, that’s the story you’re gonna tell?” And you’re like, “Shit, I’m not going to get away with anything with this lady. I have to drop the facade. You know, she’s Cate Blanchett, for God’s sake! There’s quite a feeling of wanting to impress her. She’s like, “I’m a human being. Act normal.” Before you know it, you’re drinking and telling stories and cracking jokes. She has a wild sense of humor.”

Thor Ragnorok releases on 7th November 2017

Sanjay Dutt to Recite Shloka’s In Sachin Jigar’s Next Bhoomi Song


IMG-20170814-WA0031

 

Acclaimed duo Sachin Jigar seem to be on a perpetual high these days. After getting Parineeti Chopra, Siddharth Malhotra to sing, the duo has now got the legendary actor Sanjay Dutt to sing in his upcoming film Bhoomi produced by T Series and Legend Studios that releases on 22nd September.

 

The untitled song is an edgy devotional number sung by Ajay Gogavle from the famed Marathi music duo Ajay-Atul apart from Sanjay Dutt. The song is inspired by the maa-the divine mother of the cosmos and represents  the shiv shakti concept.

 

Sachin Jigar state, “Sanjay Dutt is an all rounder. He can sing, act, dance effortlessly at the same time. He is multi-tasking rockstar for us.  He will be singing a few Sanskrit shlokas and took precisely 60 minutes in the studio to deliver his part with no prior training. It was a true honour working with him. We were actually looking to rope in an international singer like Alicia Keys to compliment Sanjay Dutt’s version but due to time constraints we couldn’t.”

 

Sachin Jigar who are winning hearts with their back to back chartbusters, have  a packed schedule with full album compositions for Raabta, Simran, A Gentleman, Parmanu, Haseena, Reload, Hindi Medium, Ishq Vishq 2 this year.

NEETA LULLA ROPED IN TO DESIGN FOR GRAMMY WINNING DJS THE CHAINSMOKERS


IMG-20170814-WA0002

 

The biggest EDM festival  in the world which features artist rosters  brimming with top tier talent, cutting-edge stage production and world-class visuals, lighting, cryogenic and pyrotechnics will be making its much awaited  foray into the Indian sub-continent. As the popular festival which has been successfully able to make the fans jump, scream, shout and rave worldwide prepares for India domination, we laid our hands on the souvenir that has been specially designed by 4 time national winner Neeta Lulla for the Grammy Award winning  producers , The Chainsmokers who will headline the debut edition of Road To Ultra in India by Percept.

 

The most sought-after electronic-pop duos in the world, The Chainsmokers who are known for their multiple chart-topping hits including Closer, Don’t Let Me Down, Paris, Roses, All We Know, Selfie are also known for their love for fashion

 

Neeta Lulla states, “It’s always important that a global artist takes back home a memory and a message from India that somewhere highlights our tradition and hence I have fused traditional prints and modern cuts for the souvenir. The design is very fresh and modern but it also has an Indian touch to it with the warli art which is earthy and tribal. Lord Ganesha is a symbol of prosperity and success and is more like a goodwill gesture. The holographic background gives a very psychedelic vibe that resonates with dance music. A lot of electro pop colors have been used since The Chainsmokers are performers and play for arena shows and color is always required to stand out.”

 

This will not be the first time Neeta will be associating with a global artist. In the past she has designed for Steven Seagal and Tyra Banks apart from designing for Bollywood stalwarts like Kangana Ranaut, Aishwarya Rai Bacchan, Priyanka Chopra Rajnikanth, Aamir Khan, Shahrukh Khan and the likes.

 

Road To ULTRA India will now be premiering the globally celebrated brand in India on 7th of September 2017 at Mahalaxmi Race Course, Mumbai followed by 8th of September 2017 at the India Exposition Mart, Greater Noida for the very first time. India’s leading live event management brand, Percept Live will be partnering with the globally celebrated brand Road to ULTRA for the domestic debut.

Is Teena Singh the ‘new’ face of Nescafe after Deepika Padukone?


 IMG-20170808-WA0033
We all know her from her powerful performance in A.R. Murugadoss’ Akira opposite Sonakshi Sinha, but the dusky Punjabi beauty is now all set to paint the town red. Teena Singh is the new brand face for Nescafe and can already be seen on the billboards across the country.
From stalwarts like Farhan Akhtar and Deepika Padukone, Nescafe has now passed the baton to fresh and spirited Singh who perfectly reflects Nescafe’s intense yet subtle coffee flavours.
Teena Singh was the pioneer in Indian Advertising industry for popularizing the ‘short haired’ or ‘boy-cut’ look. Remember, the Vicks advertisement with the short hair, tattooed beauty? Well, you-know- now-who she is!
Singh has a long list of advertising clientele that includes names like Godrej Haircolour, Times Jobs, Kotak Mahindra, Renault Duster, Jabong, Samsung Refrigerator, Lakme, and Honda bike.
While Akira was her first stint in Bollywood, she has also done a cameo in the Indian version of TV series 24 and an international project for Netflix- ‘Sense 8,’ directed by none other than the Wachowski Brothers.
The unassuming star has now grabbed our attention with her transformation from Akira’s grunge, punk look with tattoos to Nescafe’s trademark girl next door. Word has it, that she has already started shooting for a big banner film as the lead protagonist scheduled to release early next year.
Nescafe believes in making new connections, friendships, and relationships, all over a cup of frothy coffee of course. And, Teena Singh with a unique sense of style is the new chapter in this journey.
Nescafé is a coffee brand from Nestlé that started its journey in 1938. Nescafe completed 50 years in India in 2013. It is the biggest coffee brand in India with nearly 47 percent market share.

Bobby Deol’s ‘shuddh Hindi’ workshop started with the Gayatri Mantra!


Bobby Deol in Poster Boys
The recently released trailer of Poster Boys starring Sunny and Bobby Deol along with Shreyas Talpade in the lead, was a rage amongst audiences who absolutely loved the light hearted comedy it showcased.

One of the most interesting aspects to watch out for, is Bobby Deol’s ‘shuddh hindi’ rant against the people who put up their posters all around the city.

A source close to the makers of the film told us that Shreyas Talpade and writer Bunty Rathod had personally taken an initiative to coach Bobby. It was a process that Bobby had to follow, which would start off with him reciting the Gayatri Mantra in the morning followed by reading authentic Hindi newspapers on a daily basis in order to improve his diction.

The workshop was extensive and went on for a fortnight, the outcome as we saw in the trailer is definitely applaud worthy.

Inspired by a real-life incident, Poster Boys is a story about three men, who are shocked to find their pictures being used as part of a vasectomy campaign and how they decide to fight against the system.

Dharmendra, Sony Pictures Networks Productions, Sunny Sounds Pvt.Ltd. & Affluence Movies presents Poster Boys – a light hearted comedy-drama starring Sunny Deol, Bobby Deol and Shreyas Talpade. Directed by Shreyas Talpade, the film is slated to release on September 8th, 2017.

Stars and the Emoji Expressions They Resemble The Most


 

With the upcoming animated movie; The Emoji Movie being around the corner to hit the theatres on 11th August, we thought of assigning the most famous and used emojis with famous Bollywood celebrities. Here’s a look at what the B-town emoji’s would look like if they would be casted in the movie.

SRK

1)      Shah Rukh Khan as the Cat Who Ate The Canary

Known for the famous smirk of his, no one could pull off this emoji better than him. Hence without any second thought Shah Rukh Khan gets the title of the Cat who ate the Canary emoji.

Alia Bhatt

2)      Alia Bhatt As Winning Smiley Of School Girl

Who else could we choose except the ever smiling and chirpy Alia as the Winning Smiley of School Girl. Even the shape of their teeth is similar

Anushka Sharma

3)      Anushka Sharma For The Epic Wink

After that famous Instagram post of Anushka Sharma, there is no one in the industry who can imitate the Epic Wink emoji better than her. So the title for the Epic Wink Emoji goes to Anushka Sharma.

Ranveer Singh and Arjun Kapoor

4)      Ranveer Singh And Arjun Kapoor For Man-To-Man Love

Ranveer Singh and Arjun Kapoor have never hesitated away to show the love they have for each other in public. The most relevant couple who resembles the Man-to-Man Love is this duo.

Ranbir Kapoor

5)      Ranbir Kapoor as The Winking Emoji

Making hearts melt with the wink of his, chocolate boy Ranbir Kapoor is the ideal match for the Winking Emoji. We think that the emoji came into existence because of him.
The Emoji Movie co-stars James Corden, Steven Wright and Rob Riggle, along with Patrick Stewart who plays the Poop emoji.Directed by Tony Leondis and produced by Michelle Raimo, the film was scripted by Mike White and Eric Siegel.

‘The Emoji movie’ is all set to release in India on 11th August, 2017. It’s a Sony Pictures Entertainment India Release.

Sony Music takes a bold step, wants listeners to pay for the biggest song of 2017, Pritam & DIPLO’s “PHURRR”


 

Feat. Shah Rukh Khan & Anushka Sharma

DFevTNnUIAAqsM4

In a landmark move, Sony Music India has taken what is potentially its biggest track this year and put it behind a limited-time paywall. Therefore to be the first one to listen to Pritam & DIPLO’s Phurrr feat. superstar Shah Rukh Khan & the gorgeous Anushka Sharma, listeners will have to pay!

 

Another massive step in the direction is that a sample video unit of the song will release on YouTube along with the audio on August 3rd however the full song, much later.

 

A first in the music industry, this one step by Sony Music India promises to be the change agent for the Indian Music Industry.

 

Commenting on the same Shridhar Subramaniam, President – Sony Music Entertainment – India and Middle East says, “The concept of ‘everything-free’ will change or rather needs to change to an ecosystem where some things will be free and other things will be paid. The reason ‘Phurrr’ was chosen is because it is the biggest project of the year with an international collaboration so we felt that if we are taking this step then we must do it with a very big song. We needed a big project with a must-listen song that had so much anticipation.”

 

He further added, “We’re inserting a paid window in the music business which didn’t exist prior to this.”

 

 

This means that any consumer / listener who wants to access the song first will now have to pay for the same. This bold decision comes after much deliberation with key partners and stake holders including audio streaming platforms such as Saavn, Gaana, Hungama as well as the producer of the film Red Chillies Entertainment. The stakeholders do seem to be supportive of the decision, Shridhar says, “At the end of the day, it is the health of the music industry and the health of the platforms that are at stake and this decision directly benefits the health of the creators. They will definitely be in for this. While also for us Red Chillies, Shah Rukh Khan and Pritam embraced this idea whole heartedly.”

 

What Sony Music India is doing with Phurrr is essentially warming up listeners to pay to access the latest music, via subscriptions. The label promises to follow this through with other tracks going forward.

 

This is one small step for India and a first for an Indian song and hopefully a move for the better for the Music Industry.
