Nora Fatehi smoothly steals 2018 with her moves and talent

From a performer to a singer to now an actress, how this year belonged to Nora Fatehi_

Nora Fatehi has always swayed the dance floor with her sexy moves and super hot appeal. Give any song to her and she will surely turn it into a blockbuster! This year specially had been an icing for Nora given her immense success post Dilbar. While the original Dilbar made quiet a buzz with Sushmita Sen as the leading lady, this one blew the nation to another level and Nora was immediately compared to Sushmita, now that’s a milestone altogether for the hot lady. Not just this, her song in Stree also made the right noise topping in the list of all the chart busters! While Dilbar was an icing, ‘Kamariya’ was the cherry on it.

While the success of Dilbar was still brewing, Nora went global with the song as she released an Arabic version of the same where she collaborated with international brand Fnaire and went on to sing and produce the song. The Arabic Dilbar was well received by the audience too and till has garnered her all the love and appreciation over sees. Truly, Music has no language!

Well, now that the performer has entertained us with her dancing and singing, she is all set to spread her magic as an actor too. The actress has been roped in Batla House opposite John Abraham and has already finished shooting for the 1st schedule in Mussoorie. This is her third collaboration with John and the actress is quiet excited to work with the former for the third time. Nora also has ‘Bharat’ in her kitty which stars Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif. The actress has a pivotal role in the film and will be shooting for the same very soon.

This indeed has been an eventful year for our favourite performer!

Launch of Barrel Mansion


22nd December 2018, Mumbai: A year after launching and revolutionising the party scene in Mumbai, Barrel & Co. present their newest chef-d’oeuvre – Barrel Mansion. The eclectic design can only be described as lavish Chinois Chic with state-of-the-art sound, light and special effects. Aside from the outlandish yet tasteful décor, dragon murals and men and women in modern changshan and cheongsam, what really sets Barrel Mansion apart from the crowd is their singular focus on luxury hospitality.

Walking past the velvet ropes, through the gilded golden doorway, you cross into an alternate universe that transports you to another dimension. Terracota warriors blend seamlessly with a specially customised life-size animatronic LED mask. Specially designed windmill rotors provide a cool industrial feel whilst circulating air across both levels of the Mansion, with a central dance floor that doubles as stage for performers. Private party suites are on offer for high-rolling guests to unwind, relax or just enjoy a meal. The extensive pan-Asian menu has been carefully curated from across the region to ensure all appetites are well and truly satiated before leaving the Mansion. Exclusive VVIP tables offer a reserved selection of only the finest ultra-premium spirits commensurate with the entire larger-than-life affair.


This unique project has been brought to life by renowned restaurateurs and nightlife impresarios Anil Singh, Suved Lohia, Ritik Bhasin & Sunny Sara. This throwback to carefree decadence is the result of wanting to bring such an avant-garde new experience to the people of Mumbai. And needless to say, the Mumbai party-brigade was out in full force for an evening that truly lived up to its expectations as a night to remember Arbaaz Khan, Sohail & Nirvaan Khan, Abhishek & Pragya Kapoor, Kim Sharma, Harshvardhan Rane, Ekta Kapoor, Daisy Shah, Mugdha Godse, Ken Ghosh, Arjun Bijlani, Sharad Kelkar, Rohit Roy, Karan Wahi, Anita Hassanandani, Mandana Karimi, Yuvika Choudhary, Prince Narula Ritvik Dhananjay, Laxmi Rai, Rocky S & many more were in the mood to party amongst familiar friends in these celebratory surroundings.


Says Anil Singh, “the ownership team of a property, is what determines it as a “destination”. It doesn’t matter if you have golden statues and champagne waterfalls, but you don’t stand a chance if the team isn’t experienced, established and locally well-respected. Mumbai really is our backyard and many of the patrons are friends like extended family.

Lassi may be the answer to India’s good health

Om Books International “Lassis of India – Smoothies with a Twist” a book on varieties of Lassis by Radha Bhatia offers recipes for a healthy living and taste savouring

New Delhi, Dec 3, 2018: There is nothing more sublime than Lassi on a hot day! It is a staple drink that accompanies our culturally diversified Indian cuisine and is full of therapeutic properties too. This makes it fit for having a glass of Lassi even in winters. To reveal the promising health benefits of Lassi, Mrs. Radha Bhatia, Chairperson, Bird Group, along with Ajay Mago and Sanjay Mago of Om Books International, the publisher of this book, today unveiled “Lassis of India – Smoothies with a Twist.

Lassis of India – Smoothies with a Twist” is not only a book, it is a grandmother’s labour of love. It is an attempt by Radha Bhatia to span five generations of stories, wisdom and recipes – starting from her own grandmother and reaching out to her own grandchildren.

Some of the guests who attended the book launch were Dr. Shobha Vijender Gupta, Manju Singh,Mr Ajay Mago, Publisher, Om Book International, Mr. Ssumier S Pasricha, Actor, Ms. Neelam Pratap Rudy, Aacharya Vijay Bhatia, Ms. Shikha Sharma and Mr. Rajiv N Choubey, Secretary Minister of Civil Aviation, Gov. of India, Osama Jalali, Food Critic and Ms. Ishi Khosla

The idea of writing a book on Lassis occurred to me when I realized that in today’s fast paced and hectic life, a healthy lifestyle and eating habits was a universal concern. Almost everything available for ready consumption today is processed, full of artificial flavours, colours and preservatives. And our age-old elixirs like Lassi have been almost relegated into obscurity. These tasty and healthy beverages, consumed over centuries in many different avatars across various parts of the country, are natural and full of ingredients with tremendous health benefits” said Radha Bhatia, author of the book.

Sharing his unique idea about Lassi, editorial director HT Vir Sanghvi who has done extensive research on fondness for yogurt and in different countries said “Dahi has an inexplicable cooling effect. It cools the body, no matter how hot the summer is. It is versatile. It can be used to make cool drinks and desserts. Even in winters dahi can be used to make marinade or for cooking. One common and most popular way of consuming dahi is to make Lassi from it. Even though India has a grand tradition of yogurt drinks, there is a need to talk about the Indian romance with yoghurt and more specifically, have books on it. This book is a delightful attempt to redress that balance with wonderful recipes and great photos.”

Lassis of India is a compilation of 17 traditional recipes from various states blending with the local food and climate. The balance 57 are lassis with a twist – prepared with herbs, fruits and nuts which would attract the younger generation. The recipes ranging from ‘Meethi Lassi’ of Punjab to ‘Talicha More’ of Tamil Nadu – each with unique taste and health benefits are prepared, served and relished by Roseate Hotels guests. All the recipes in the book are simple and intended for the home cook.

Churned out of yogurt or dahi, lassi is very beneficial for the digestive system. It is light on the stomach and contains healthy bacteria that aid in smooth digestion. One common way of consuming dahi was to make a drink with it. This was a uniquely Indian invention. In Gujarat, most meals are accompanied by chhaas which is savoury. In the North, sweet lassi is popular and in the South savoury milk drinks are common. Even the westerners are fond of Lassi, as depicted in the popular nursery rhyme about Miss Muffet.

Ajay Mago, Publisher, Om Books International, said “Over lunch, Radha Bhatia said she wanted to do a book on Lassis, a very small book that would preserve an important component of our culinary heritage and culture. The native cooler was consumed across most of India in local variations, and had cousins beyond its shores too in other countries.

A great raconteur, Radha Bhatia went on to recount her personal journeys that led to her discovery of some of these variations. And that did it! Not a very small book; it would be a full-fledged book on Lassis of India, with traditional variations and modern avatars. And now that Lassis of India is here, wine-tasting has just acquired stiff competition.”
