7 Hours Is What It Took For Amitabh Bachchan and Rishi Kapoor To Get Into 102 Not Out Look 

102 Not Out will see Amitabh Bachchan and Rishi Kapoor sharing screen space after a gap of 27 years. In the film, Mr. Bachchan will be seen playing Rishi Kapoor’s father. Considering the fact that both the actors have to play their character more than their actual age, a lot of prosthetics and make up was used to make them look like their character’s age.

Director Umesh Shukla states that it would take his ageing protagonists a staggering seven hours for make-up every day. This would be followed by six hours of shooting. He says, “Initially, I thought they would get irritated with the long-winded process but the make-up actually helped them emote and complemented their characters really well. Both Amitabh sir and Rishi ji would walk onto the sets at 5 am with a different kind of energy and we would commence shooting after lunch and go on till 6 pm. At times, the shoot extended to 9 pm. But that mostly happened when we were in the midst of shooting a scene and wanted to can it in one shift for the sake of continuity,” says Umesh adding that the film’s team shot for nine nights in the 45-day schedule in Mumbai.

He further adds that while Bachchan’s dentures were manageable, Kapoor’s bald cap was a cause of concern. “Rishi ji, who plays a 70-year-old character, would feel extremely hot in it. Whenever he removed it, and I am not exaggerating, it looked like he was sweating by the glass. He had to wear that cap for at least 12 hours every day,” he revealed.

The film has been written by Saumya Joshi (director of the eponymous Gujarati play on which the film is based) and directed by Umesh Shukla.

A Sony Pictures Releasing International Production and worldwide distribution- 102 Not Out is Produced by SPE Films India, Treetop Entertainment and Umesh Shukla’s Benchmark Pictures. The film releases worldwide on 4th May 2018

With every super hero film that MCU has released over the years, the love and devotion to the franchise has only been on the rise and with yet another Avenger movie on the release tracks, we can’t contain our excitement!

It’s almost been ten years since the fans have developed a special bond with the franchise and everyone related to it including the cast and crew.

After working for over a decade together, Robert Downey Jr. opened up about how ‘The Avengers’ team felt more like a family now.

The 52-year-old actor, known popularly as Iron Man in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, said that the whole cast and crew are looking forward to the release of the forthcoming ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ releasing on 27th April.

Talking about it he said, “We’re going to pull out the stops, and stop exploring conventions, and look to do stuff where we go, ‘Oh, but if we do that, that’s very, very definitive’.”

“We’re like a family now. Ten years later, we’re hanging out and having lunch, and kind of wondering when the draft is going to come in. Which one of us bites it and when?” Downey Jr added.

Well, the ‘Avengers’ film is a must watch especially because it is going to be a star-studded affair with a talented cast like Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Chris Hemsworth, Jeremy Renner and Mark Ruffalo all coming to you in English Hindi Tamil and Telugu on 27th April!

Raveena turns entrepreneur

Raveena Tandon became every girl’s go- to beauty guru last year as she turned vlogger and shared her skincare secrets on her social media handle. The mast mast girl is gearing up to launch her own line of skincare products.

A source close to the actor reveals, “Raveena has been approached by a beauty products company for a joint venture. While the actor has agreed in principle, the modalities are being worked out. The signature line will consist of hair and skincare products.” Confirming the news, Tandon says that it was her fan base that prompted her to take her love for beauty to the next level. “When I started my vlog BeautyTalkiesWithRavz, many of my fans urged me to launch skincare products made from natural ingredients. I thought it would be a good idea. Being an entrepreneur, I wanted to extend my entrepreneurial ability to a sphere that is close to my heart,” she says.

One to swear by the goodness of natural products, she insists that she will adopt the same philosophy in her range too. “The products won’t rely on animal testing, and won’t contain harmful chemicals.” Many actors have ventured into the market with their collection of beauty essentials.

Ask her how she intends to stand out from the bandwagon, she says, “I’m not pursuing this to make money. I only wish to deliver quality products to consumer s and make them happy.”

The funding will be used to expand PictureTime’s mobile digiplex cinema theatres to 100 operational units by March 2019, making it one of the largest cinema operators in the country. Picture Time has created a unique, one-of-a-kind mobile digiplex cinema theatre unit with a fireproof inflatable canopy that can accommodate 120 viewers. Within two hours the air-conditioned mobile digiplex cinema theatre is fully functional, complete with seating arrangements and world-class digital projectors with surround sound for a high quality cinema experience. Tickets are priced in the range of Rs 30/- to Rs 50/-.

The outside areas of the digiplex are converted into a local food court and entertainment and gaming activities giving audiences in small semi-urban and rural areas accessibility to a multiplex cinematic experience. The mobile digiPlex cinema theatres also create digital marketplaces equipped with multiple facilities in the locations they visit. By creating 100-meter-wide intranet sites, they also provide facilities like Wi-Fi hotspot and micro ATMS facilitating villagers to make bank transactions or mandatory Aadhaar linkages.

Speaking on the new round of funding, Mr. Sushil Chaudhary, the founder and CEO of PictureTime said,Our aim is to use technology to not only provide high quality entertainment to rural India, but to also use our mobile digiplex cinema theatres as an outreach vehicle to generate awareness on educational and government schemes on initiatives around Digital India, Skill India and Swachh Bharat Abhiyaan.

Speaking on the business model and scalability of PictureTime, Mr. Ajay Relan, Founder Chairman, CX Partners said “Picture Time provides unique dual benefits to the rural population of India – a state of the art cinema experience as well as an outreach medium for both social messaging and private advertising all under one umbrella. By offering low cost mobile cinema halls, the venture will help address the severe cinema theatre crunch by increasing the screen count in remote parts of the country.”

Established in October 2015 PictureTime introduced mobile digiplex cinema theatres in an effort to increase the number of cinema screens in India. Picture Time is currently operating 10 mobile digiplex cinema theatre units and has so far showcased movies in remote villages of Telangana, Andhra Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh.
