Sunny Leone gets mobbed on the sets of Mastizaade in Bangkok

Sunny Leone will be next seen in a double role as Laila and Lily Lele in Milap Zaveri’s adult comedy Mastizaade also starring Tusshar Kapoor and Vir Das.
While shooting a hot and steamy car wash song sequence on a beach in Bangkok, the gorgeous actress was shocked to see thousands of people gathered to watch her groove to Rom Rom Romantic, a naughty, playful and wicked song from the original soundtrack sung by Mika Singh, composed by Amaal Mallik and choreographed by Mudassar Khan.
The minute Sunny landed on set in her stunning bikini ready to hose down the bright red sports car, the crowd started shouting her name repeatedly which left her hugely surprised and ecstatic! Little did she know that she has such a massive fan following in Thailand!
These people were not just Sunny’s Indian fans touring Bangkok but also foreign tourists and local residents who went literally berserk seeing their favourite star dance right in front of their eyes. This was a once in a lifetime opportunity and Sunny obliged each of her fans with autographs and selfies once the shoot for the day was over.
In the final picturisation of the song, the audience will notice huge groups of people gathered around Sunny cheering her on, clapping in the air and literally singing along with her almost like they were at a rock concert!
The crowds were so uncontrollable that the production team didn’t have any choice but to invite each one of Sunny’s fans to be a part of the shoot and sing and dance along. They didn’t even have to call for any junior artists on the day since all the real Sunny fans automatically filled the frame. Each one of these fans will be pleasantly surprised when they see themselves on screen once the movie releases.
Milap informs, “We had a sexy and fun car wash sequence to shoot in Pattaya with smoking hot Sunny in a stunning bikini! Naturally the crowd and onlookers went BESERK! We had very little time to shoot it and leave because the crowd started to mob Sunny! The sequence is one of the highlights of the film and will make everyone want to wash their cars immediately!”

SIFFCY Finalises Films for 2015 International Film Festival for Children and Youth

Displaying IMG_1060.JPGSIFFCY (Smile International Film Festival for Children and Youth) has announced the final selections of films for this year's (2015) film festival, which will be held at Sirifort Auditorium, New Delhi during 21-27 December 2015.  More than 80 films will be showcased in this year's festival that includes 30 feature films, 30 Shorts and documentaries and 20 students’ films. The week-long festival will open with award winning Russian film ‘Celestial Camel’, directed by Yury Feting. ‘My friend Raffi’, ‘Fiddlestick’, ‘Lola on the pea’ from Germany, ‘A Christmoose story’, ‘Pim & Pom’ from Netherlands and ‘Birds of passage’ from France/Belgium are some of the celebrated films that will be screened during the festival. 5 special films from ‘Children’s Film Society India’ will be showcased in a special section of the festival this year. The festival will also include workshops on children related Film Making, Photography, Sand animation, storytelling and other activities.
Noted film makers such as Nagesh Kukunoor, Tigmanshu Dhulia, Hansal Mehta, Santosh Sivan, Jahnu Barua, and Oscar-winning sound designer Resul Pookutty have come on board as advisory members of the festival, along with National award winning film critics Saibal Chatterjee, Utpal Borpujari and film producer Sushil Kumar Agrawal. Targeting the country’s children and youth, the week-long festival in Delhi will only be the beginning, after which SIFCCY will travel across India aiming to reach out to more than one million children and youth and advocating the concept of good cinema. According to director-actor Tigmanshu Dhulia, who was present at the announcement of the final list of films for the festival, said, "These days people are watching films on the Internet and on TV by themselves. Film festivals are a great way to interact with peers, students and filmmakers to get together and discuss cinema and issues connected to our society. I appreciate that Smile Foundation is taking this initiative to promote good cinema among children. It will go a long way in encouraging youngsters to make good cinema in future." 
Echoing his thoughts, director Nagesh Kukunoor, who was also present, concurred, "There is a dearth of good cinema for youngsters in our country. A film festival like this helps expose children to global filmmaking and differentiate good cinema from mediocre."
Speaking on this occasion, Mr. Vikram Singh Verma, Chief Operating Officer, Smile Foundation said, “we aim to sensitize children and youth through meaningful cinema and create a lasting impact in their minds through SIFFCY. On one hand we work with underprivileged children and their families and on the other hand under the concept of ‘civic driven change’ we try sensitizing privileged masses particularly children and youth”. Since films play a very important role towards sensitization, Smile Foundation has been making films, which are creative, innovative and a balance of the right content and the right quality, foraying into producing films of all kinds and has been hugely successful, winning several awards for its endeavours in all the categories. The feature film ‘I AM KALAM’, produced by Smile Foundation, received more than 30 international awards and a national award.
“We are offering a unique platform to children and youth, where they can watch and enjoy, or create their own work and take things a stage further and find out more about a career in the industry. The idea behind this initiative is to design a rich mix of film and programmes to build and support the growing interest in meaningful filmmaking” - said Mr. Jitendra Mishra, Festival Director – SIFFCY.
SIFFCY is a reflection of Smile Foundation’s efforts to use films as a medium for sensitizing masses, especially children and youth, and engaging them proactively in the process of bringing social change.

When 'Star Wars' Daisy Ridley had coffee with Harrison Ford!!

Rising star Daisy Ridley is who all set to create a name for herself with JJ Abrams much awaited Star Wars The Force Awakens releasing on 25th December, fondly recollects the first time she met Han Solo aka Harrison Ford and had coffee!!
When asked about her first time meeting with the veteran superstar Daisy said, “When I first met Harrison, we just sat down for a coffee together. He was talking about his experience in the whole thing, not just Han Solo, but the “Star Wars” saga. Then we all had dinner together, which was great”
The actress further showers effusive praise on Director JJ Abrams, who helped her immensely despite the pressures of an ensemble cast and ‘Star Wars’ expectations
J.J. is amazing. I’ve never really been on a film set before, and everyone adores him. He's very kind, very generous. He was so great at the beginning because I was so nervous. He’s so patient, which is really important for me because I spent a lot of time going, I can’t do this. He made sure everyone on set was feeling great. There’s no one not worthy of a hello and a thank you. There have been so many moments when he’s gotten on the mic and told everyone that the work they’re doing is incredible, which it is. They’re getting that warmth from him that is needed. In such a big film personal relationships can be lost. But, because he is who he is, they’re not at all. Everyone feels praise. Everyone feels loved. Everyone feels appreciated. That is so important. He’s created this incredible world, and in the real world he’s this incredible man as well.” 
Daisy plays Rey , one of the leads of Star Wars: The Force Awakens releasing on 25th December 2015
