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.
