Padmini Kolhapure marks her Television Debut with Sony TV's Ekk Nayi Pehchaan

It seems like 2014 is going to be the year of television debut for many leading Bollywood veterans. Veteran actress Padmini Kolhapure is all set to join the bandwagon by entering the small screen.
Padmini will be seen in a central role on Sony TV’s Ekk Nayi Pehchan. What is interesting to note is that both Padmini and Poonam not only grew up together in the industry but also started their Bollywood career together 30 years back. They were last seen together in the 90’s film ‘Qurbani Rang Layegi’. And now to see them together for the first time ever on Ekk Nayi Pehchan will surely be a complete visual delight! 
Ekk Nayi Pehchaan is an Indian television drama series which tells the story of women empowerment and education through relationships. The show stars Poonam Dhillon and Krystle D'Souza in lead roles.

The Indian Transformer: Roadie Nikhil Sachdeva


 Displaying 18.jpg

Winner of Roadies XI Nikhil Sachdeva was named ‘Transformer’ during the reality show by judges Raghu & Rannvijay!
Nikhil Sachdeva, the winner of Roadies XI hosted by popular VJ Rannvijay Singh & Raghav, has definitely earned his place in the current season after a rejection in auditions for Roadies X & was called as the Transformer during the show by the judges. 
The enthusiastic Guinness Book Record Holder Tattoo Artist Nikhil Sachdeva, after receiving flak from the judges Rannvijay & Raghav for being overweight during the auditions of Roadies X, only came back fitter & better impressing the judges much during the Roadies XI Delhi auditions currently being one of the strongest contenders on the show & finally winning the title. 
On being the winner, Nikhil mentions, “I feel on the top of the World right now like a king of the Jungle. But  I am still holding my ground and would rather try that this fame doesn't get to my head and  I can make something useful out of this win. I am thankful to God n my loved ones.”
Talking about his experience on the show, “This was the best experience of my life so far. The Journey was the best part, travelling 300 kilometers from one city to another every 3rd day was fun. Rest was not easy. It was a reality show indeed & the crew made sure that we feel that thrill... Everything was real, cuts n bruises were real, all he injurious were real. It taught me the real meaning of core strength, sharing the same ring with World known boxer Vijender Sing & taking his punches were real too. Mental pressure of losing it and going home, gave me sleepless nightmares but surrender was never in my Nature.”  
The strong willed, free spirited Delhi based Tattoo artist has had an interesting background shuffling jobs in Delhi in constant hunger for exposure, experience & money getting him to audition for Roadie X albeit after much criticism from Raghu & Rannvijay for being overweight, the artist took it in a positive stride. Nikhil Sachdeva extensively trained himself & lost oodles of weight before the Roadie XI audition impressing the judges securing a place in one of the popular youth Reality show.
The overwhelmed Nikhil quips, “The experience was exhilarating. Co-contestants were too much fun. I adore Rannvijay; he has encouraged & motivated me throughout the show. The crew is absolutely amazing. I always used to get this adrenaline rush every time we had to perform a task. I’ll always cherish this experience.”
Nikhil proudly states the obvious reasons for his victory on the reality show, “I have won millions of hearts, that for sure. MTV Roadies X1 winner is a glorious title. As the Roadies X1 tag line says "Ride for Respect" for me that was more important, winning with respect. The kind of response I am getting from the world is overwhelming. I never thought, I'll inspire so many people. All the love from the viewers of the show n the fans I made, has made my Win a Victory indeed. My hard workhas paid off... It was all worth it. I always believed that everything is possible.”
Nikhil gives message to all his fans, “Just need to put the right amount of efforts. Just "dare to dream" n "take your chances".
Nikhil Sachdeva is a definitely a true roadie into the making!

Strip down for Romance on TV…WHY NOT? : Vivek Mishra

Vivek Mishra amused by televsion producers turning down his Naked Dating Reality show concept
Delhi based actor & model; also the only Naked Yoga Trainer in India, Vivek Mishra created quite a stir with his wild card entry in television’s popular reality show Bigg Boss soon after which he received numerous offers for other reality shows but nothing that excited the witty & quirky yoga master.
Delhi was abuzz with news of Vivek Mishra getting offered to play a host in VH1’s most talked about untitled Naked Dating show that the yoga master had to turn down due to certain disagreements with the production house.
Albeit Vivek pretty much liked the idea to bring a similar concept & present it before the Indian audiences with his own Naked Dating show but he knew what was coming, “I did approach few people who I could trust with the concept of my Naked Dating show, as much as they seemed pretty excited about the entire new thing, they didn’t really want to go ahead only fearing how the audiences would react to it & how would they be able to keep up with the network standards.”
Vivek giving a little sneak peek into the whole concept, “Each episode will feature a man and a woman as they each date two different -- and naked -- suitors. The series will explore the art of romance -- free of preconceived notions, stereotypes and, yes, clothing. At the end of every hour-long episode, the two romance-seekers analyze what they've learned from their dates -- and themselves -- before deciding whether to move forward with their potential love matches.”
On being turned down by almost every production house to go ahead with this concept, “I am aware that India is not ready for something like this, but I am also aware that we do have a large number of people who watch channels & shows post midnight & we all know the content of these shows. Obviously what the viewers will see will be blurred. There have been enough shows on heartbreaks, crimes other than the usual daily soap, don’t we want something different?”
The naked yoga guru still hunts to collaborate with a production house that will help him sail through with this new concept that will definitely shake the roots of Indian Reality TV.

In 2010, the band released their third studio album, Hands All Over, which was certified platinum. The collection featured two hit singles including the Hot AC smash “Misery” and the anthemic  “Moves Like Jagger,” which climbed to the#1 spot on the Top 40, Hot AC and Billboard Hot 100 charts. The track has also become one of the best-selling singles of all time. Following the release of the album, both “Misery” and “Moves Like Jagger” received GRAMMY nominations.
Maroon 5’s most recent album Overexposed quickly reinforced the group¹s status as a powerhouse in popular music with all of the collection¹s singles rising to the top of the charts. The third single off of the album, “Daylight,” claimed the # 1 spot on both Top 40 and Hot AC radio charts. In the process, the band set a record for the most #1’s (six in total) by a group in the Top 40 chart’s 20-year history. In conjunction with the album, Maroon 5 wrapped one of the highest grossing tours of 2013 with over 50 million dollars in ticket sales.

Global designer Salim Asgarally brings fashion education to underprivileged

Displaying director kalpana lajmi and global designer salim asgarally at the fashion workshop for underprivileged children in association with smile foundation.jpg
Supports Smile Foundation youth with scholarships to enter fashion industry
A name synonymous with high craftsmanship & articulation in his creations, with embellishments made from highly creative blend of east and the west, his world famous collections gracefully adorn the homes of Hollywood celebs like Brad Pitt & Madonna. Top models like Bipasha Basu & Aishwarya Rai have flaunted his creations in fashion shows.
Designer Salim Asgarally now makes fashion become a platform for change when he had top women directors walk the ramp for Smile Foundation's charity fashion show to signify their solidarity towards the girl child cause.Asgarally held  a Fashion Workshop forOHOWMANunderprivileged youngsters in association with the Smile Foundation. The youth are in the age group of 18 to 25 who are part of Smile Twin e-Learning Programme (STeP) conducted by Smile Foundation across its centres in Mumbai. 
STeP is the livelihood programme for the underprivileged youth, wherein the youth are given training on key employability skills like English proficiency, computer operations, personality development, etc. with the objective of helping them get a job in the growing retail and service sector. Smile Twin e-Learning Programme (STeP) is a national level livelihood programme of Smile Foundation that trains urban underprivileged youth with market-oriented job skills such as English, basic computer, personality development, retail management, relevant soft skills etc and makes them employed in retail and service sectors across India. More than 13,750 youth have been trained and 9850 have been placed in over 140 brands through 35 operational projects across India.
Through this Fashion Workshop, the first of its kind held by a fashion designer, Asgarally seeks to inspire these young minds towards a career in fashion as designers, costume designers, stylists, merchandisers, pattern makers, retail professionals, fashion buyers or other myriad options available in the trade at both a creative or management level.
The children inspired and wishing to be a part of the fashion business will then through the able offices of Asgarally be given scholarships for a year to study fashion at an institute of repute and will be assisted in making a career in the industry.
Asgarally was accompanied by the celebrated and award-winning filmmaker and director Kalpana Lajmi, who will give a talk on the importance, potential and need of qualified and trained Costume Designers in the film industry.Kalpana Lajmi to her credit has made several socially relevant films such as Rudaali, Darmiyaan, Daman and Chingaari. ”A beautiful endeavour by Smile Foundation and Salim Asgarally to introduce and absorb underprivileged children to the world of fashion. I am very glad I was a part of it,” said Kalpana Lajmi.
This endeavour succeeds a successful showing of Asgarally's collection titled RED for the Smile Foundation at a star studded fashion show in Mumbai last month in aid of providing education to a 1000 underprivileged children. This effort is now part of a continuing exercise with the Smile Foundation and Asgarally towards positive social change in the area of education for underprivileged children.
The current workshop will outline the role and function of the fashion business and explain the opportunities available for gainful employment and career growth in the world of fashion and costume.  Asgarally has managed to get scholarships for fashion design diploma for deserving students based on merit to cover their tuition and hostel facilities from Anupam Goyal, CEO of the Institute of Design Technology, Surat, and hopes to get more such organised in the near future with other schools of fashion in India and abroad to be able to facilitate the funding of education for these youth.  Says he, “it gives me great pleasure and a deep satisfaction to make a difference to the lives of those less fortunate children and their families through my talent, skills and work experience as a fashion designer.”
Asgarally believes that if every business dedicates a small percentage of its profits or resources towards upliftment and education of underprivileged children, this world will be devoid of stress, strife and poverty. And this move is merely one step in the right direction.

Hugh Jackman goes nude for X Men Days Of Future Past!!

The actor reveals all about his nude scene!
The excitement and anticipated around the 7th X Men movie X Men Days of Future Past releasing on 23rd may is already reaching dizzying heights.
But now it might just reach fever pitch, as Hugh Jackman has revealed there’s ‘a naked shot’ in the film!!!
The actor who is back as Wolverine in Days Of Future Past has revealed all about his nude back scene in the opening scenes of the film which shows his entire backside!!
Hugh said that the scene in question is ‘not front naked – it’s PG-13 – but full-body.’
He explained: ‘So I made it very clear that I wanted to know the date I’d be shooting that stuff. That was May 21. And I remember about three weeks before that, I hear, "Oh, we’re having some trouble with the day, we might push it off a few weeks."
‘I said, “Absolutely not! I don’t care, you can push anything back you want, but I’m naked on that day!”
The 45-year-old works out all the time, and it seems he upped the ante before showing off his hunky body in all its glory doing extra lunges and squats.
The actor also had given a brief but memorable backside glimpse during The Wolverine last year.
Though the scene is likely to be censored in India well for all you Hugh Jackman fans out there this is one more icing on the cake!!

In order to effectively play a conman in Raja NatwarlalEmraan Hashmi read a lot about Mithilesh Kumar Srivastava alias Natwarlal, a notorious conman who was known for his elaborate cons like selling the Taj Mahal, the Red Fort and the Parliament House.
