~This nightmare fuelled showcase directed by Ari Aster will release across screens on 22nd June~
What’s more tragic: To bring about your own destruction, or to be irreversibly doomed? You will never know till you actually have to pick. And sometimes a horror film comes along that instantly makes you jolt upright in your seat, palms soaked and breathe shallow, instilling a vague, temporary unease! ‘Hereditary’ is just that movie – unsettling, hypnotic, cathartic, psychologically and viscerally grueling.
The film is directed by Ari Aster and starts debutant Toni Collette, along with Alex Wolf, Milly Shapiro, Ann Dowd, and Gabriel Byrne and is a harrowing story of an unthinkable family tragedy that veers into the realm of the supernatural.
The Graham family starts to unravel following the death of their reclusive grandmother. Even after she’s gone, the matriarch still casts a dark shadow over the family, especially her loner teenage granddaughter, Charlie, whom she always had an unusual fascination with. As an overwhelming terror takes over their household, their peaceful existence is ripped apart, forcing their mother to explore a darker realm in order to escape the unfortunate fate they’ve inherited.

Versatile actress Mahie Gill has never failed to impress with her powerful performances. Recently, the talented actress once again left us awe-struck by giving us a glimpse of her feisty character in the trailer of her upcoming film – Phamous.
While Mahie’s character in this soon-to-be-released crime-drama has undoubtedly caught the eyeballs, the fact is that when Mahie had signed the film, she had not even read the script.
Yes, the talented actress is very good friends with the debutant director of the film – Karan Lalit Butani and when he approached her for the part, the lovely gal not only happily agreed to be a part of his first film but also didn’t charge a dime for it.
Speaking about it, director Karan said, “Mahie and I have been extremely close friends since Saheb, Biwi Aur Gangster. And Mahie is someone who would go to any lengths for her friends. I have seen this many a times. Though she didn’t read the script of Phamous, I did give her a narration. I explained to her how important her character was to the script and that was that. She was also extremely excited about the fact that I was making my debut so her not charging a penny was more of a gift or her contribution to my entry in the industry.”
Now, how sweet is that, isn’t it?
Set in the notorious ravines of Chambal, Phamous also stars Jimmy Sheirgill, Kay Kay, Pankaj Tripathi, Jackie Shroff, and Shriya Saran in pivotal roles. The film revolves around a power-struggle between four principal characters and invites you on an odyssey that hits your heart and face at the same time.
Phamous is a Karan Lalit Butani film, presented by Raj Khatri Filmz and produced by Raj Khatri, Vidisha Productions and Amitabh Chandra. Phamous is scheduled to releases on June 1, 2018.

Cookies & Cream flavoured PediaSure is packed with 37 vital nutrients which support a child’s growing height, weight and energy requirements
PediaSure offers an optimal balance of taste and nutrition for the high activity summer break
Actress Lara Dutta is inspiring Indian parents to incorporate this healthy and tasty addition to their child’s plate
MUMBAI, May 17, 2018 – “Is my child eating right?”, is a concern many young parents face with their children. As kids enjoy their high activity summer break, it is important for parents to offer a complete and balanced nutrition and ensure their kids’ growth is not compromised. There’s now a nutritious and tasty option to address this concern as Abbott introduces the all new PediaSure flavour, Cookies & Cream for children two years and above.
PediaSure Cookies & Cream provides complete and balanced nutrition for a growing child at nutritional risk. Packed with 37 vital nutrients, it supports a child’s growing height, weight and energy requirements. During summer vacation, fun takes centrestage and discipline about nutrition is often broken as children consume unhealthy foods or eat at irregular times. Two servings (morning and evening) of PediaSure go a long way towards building immunity as well as physical and brain development in children – and the new flavour is great for children who are very selective in their taste preferences. With summers in full swing, and schools closed for holidays, it is the perfect time to keep activity levels up and good health at its peak for school-going kids.
At the launch event, Actress Lara Dutta, mother to a six-year-old, spoke about the importance of optimum nutrition in holistic child growth.
“During summers, my daughter is filled with ideas – to play new games, places to go and have lots of uninterrupted fun. I am sure all young ones look forward to the summer break the same way. While children are excited about holidays, parents often stress about how they can engage them effectively and ensure that they eat right. My daughter has very strong taste preferences, and I am on the look-out for food options that are not just healthy but also tasty and packed with nutrients,” she said, as she shared her experience of raising her child.
Amal Kelshikar, Country Head & General Manager – India at Abbott Nutrition shared, “We understand how parents worry about their kids’ complete nutrition and growth, particularly so in the summer break time when meal-time discipline becomes flexible and play time takes centerstage. PediaSure is the No. 1 brand recommended by pediatricians all around the world. PediaSure is a scientifically proven supplement to improve linear growth without excess weight gain in children at nutritional risk. We have added to PediaSure a delicious twist, with the new Cookies & Cream flavour that will appeal to every child’s palate while offering them the healthy nutrition they need.”
“Summer is not just a season – it’s an opportunity to refresh, relax, learn and grow, for kids. I often meet moms who come to me for advice on a balanced diet for their kids. I always recommend a lot of outdoor play, minimal screen time on television and phone, and most importantly, I tell them not to lose focus on balanced nutrition. Children’s diet should be wholesome, healthy and have the right blend of proteins, carbohydrates, fats, vitamins and minerals to support their growth and development needs,” said Dr Indu Khosla, practicing pediatrician at Cloudnine Hospital.
“A child’s formative years, two to six years, lay the foundation for motor, cognitive, social, and emotional skills for life. During this period, children witness rapid linear growth, continued development of organs and neural expansion. Therefore, this is the time when children have specific nutritional requirements and high energy needs. Along with a variety of foods to ensure a balanced diet, for some children it is imperative to introduce an oral nutrition supplement formulated to take care of nutrient requirements for this age so that they do not miss out on overall growth,” said Dr Eileen Canday, HOD Nutrition & Dietetic Department, Sir H.N. Reliance Foundation Hospital, at the launch.
PediaSure Cookies & Cream is available nationwide at most major retailers and online. To learn more about your child’s wholesome nutrition, visit PediaSure.in OR facebook.com/PediaSureIndia.

‘Deadpool 2’ is currently the quirkiest and most talked about superhero film with the foul mouthed Ryan Reynolds as Deadpool and Josh Brolin who returns as ‘Cable’ post playing Thanos in his last superhero outing.
The hilarious trailers have already given a tantalizing glimpse of the fun to expect, but what’s left to see is the upgrade that Deadpool has got from his first installment. He also seems to have gallows humour of the no-holds-barred kind that made the character such a favorite among the audience. In the movie, Deadpool goes on a mission to rescue a child from Cable and creates a super team of heroes, called the X Force.
When asked about how it was while shooting the action-packed sequences and what we can expect from Deadpool 2, Ryan said, “Well, playing a guy that is allowed to make mistakes and is allowed to sort of at times be offensive and say the wrong thing at the exact wrong moment gives you tremendous artistic liberty. And it’s nice that he doesn’t really beat himself up for it, because at the end of the day, his agenda is something that’s ultimately good. I mean, he inevitably wants to be better.”
‘Deadpool 2’ will hit theaters on 18th May.
Emilia Clarke who was seen essaying the role of Daenerys Targaryen in Game of Thrones, is now excited to play the role of a strong female character in Solo: A Star Wars Story! She will be playing the role of Qi’ra in the film.
“As someone who has donned characters that exist already, which can be really daunting and scary, it’s been really fun to slip into a new character,” says Emilia Clarke. “I did a lot of research and geeked up on a lot of stuff because I wanted to get the role right.”
About the Star Wars franchise, she says, “Seeing the Force Awakens on theatre was an incredible experience. It’s such an incredible piece of work. Lucas film always make sure that their films look really great onscreen. Star Wars is the most loved story of the century. I’ve grown up seeing the films getting a whole new makeover. Acting in the franchise’s film is an opportunity that is too good to miss.”
Solo: A Star Wars Story shows how Han Solo met his future copilot Chewbacca before the events in the original 1977 Star Wars. The film is the second anthology film after 2016’s Rogue One. The project is directed by Ron Howard.
The movie also stars Alden Ehrenreich, Woody Harrelson, Emilia Clarke, Donald Glover, Thandie Newton, Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Paul Bettany.
The film will be released in India on May 25.
Om Books International along with JLWA, Mumbai hosted the launch of Kama: The story of the Kama Sutra written by renowned Tv – web series writer and documentary director, Jaya Misra onMonday, 07th May 2018. The book was launched by Bollywood stalwarts like Actor Arshad Warsi, Film Producer Ekta Kapoor and Film Director Kabir Khan. The event was hosted by Mini Mathur and the event was graced by Bollywood celebrities like Sandya Mridul, Mandira Bedi, Gul Panag, Roshan Abbas, Maria Goretti and award winning writer Manu Joseph.
Kama: The Story of the Kama Sutra is the first fictionalized biography of Vatsayana, the compiler of Kama. A contemporary novel depicting the life and times of a man who lived 2000 yers ago, who compiled ancient erotic texts with his witty aphorisms to create the sensational Kama Sutra. On the face of it Kama Sutra, is a manual for the hedonist, but within the story, lies another, written with blood. A tale of broken hearts, lyrical violence, ageless love, and pure lust! Set in 273 A.D, in a land fraught with war and unrest, Kama is the story of a catastrophic day in a writer-artist’s life that sets him off on a journey unto himself, beyond the boundaries of love, family and betrayal. This fast-paced story of tragedy and triumph beguiles and captivates as it flits seamlessly between an agonizing past, an erotic present and a cataclysmic future. The book marks Jaya Misra’s debut as an author.
Commenting on the book launch the debutant novelist Jaya Misra said, “Kama Sutra as a concept is presumed to be or depicted as a synonym for creative sexual positions; in reality, only part of the Kama Sutra is about sexual positions. My book Kama: The story of the Kama Sutra has a very different take on the entire concept; it is about the philosophy and theory of love. It’s about what motivated Vatsyayana to write this grand treatise! I actually feel that Vatsyayana was possibly India’s first feminist, with his pulse on female desire. Kama is erotic, its contemporary and its exciting. I’m so overwhelmed by the response of early readers! They have not been able to put down the book and have finished it over night! My friend Roshan Abbas finished it in 7 hours straight! I’m very happy about my book getting published and also very anxious to know the response from the readers”.
Ajay Mago, Publisher, Om Books International: While the Kama Sutra remains an unparalleled treatise on love-making, the life of its compiler, Vatsyayana, shrouded in mystery, has always been heatedly debated by scholars. Kama is a very credible yet fictionalised biography of Vatsyayana, based on an amalgamation of intense research and great imagination. The book is so evocative that I felt I was watching everything unfold right in front of me. Simply mersmerising in its erotic and tragic charge.
The book is published by Om Books International which is one of the largest English language trade publishers in the Indian subcontinent, Om Books International has been a name to reckon with for over five decades in the Indian publishing and retail industry.
Jane Fonda has no plans of slowing down as she gears up for a much-anticipated movie, Book Club. But who knew she refused her role in the Book Club and only agreed to do the film when she was sent the re-written script.
The co-producer and co-writer Erin Simms of Book Club says“The meetings with the actors were hard because Bill had to convince them to take a chancewith him, so many legends, so much happening and a tight schedule. It was tough.”
And they only found out the meaning of tough when they pitched the script to Jane Fonda.
Erin recalls her situation with Jane and says “I sent it to her and 24 hours later she came back and said ‘No. Pass. It’s not sophisticated.’ It was heart-breaking and I don’t know why Bill and I didn’t give up. We rewrote the character. At one point, it was her and her gay best friend; at another point she was obsessing over a married man, we had so many storylines. Eventually we realized this character is propelling everyone forward, she’s further along in the journey of embracing sexuality and confidence. She has the reverse storyline. Once we hit on that, the story came together. Two months later, I still wanted Jane but Bill thought there’s no chance. I don’t know what came over me. I just emailed Jane ‘Hey, we rewrote the script for you. Loved your notes, super smart. I know it’s pretty obnoxious for me to ask you to read this a second time. If you feel like it, read it.’ I don’t advise anyone to do that. Jane always responds and when she reads the script, she gets back to you. I didn’t hear from her so I just figured it’s over. Then I got this email one morning in bed. She said, ‘I’m in.”
The film follows four old friends who read EL James’ Fifty Shades of Grey and believe it’s the wake-up call that they need to take advantage of all that life has to offer.
