Let’s hear the ‘Earth Voices’ before they are gone: Abhishek Ray

#AbhishekRay, conservationist, singer and film composer of Paan Singh Tomar, Welcome Back, Saheb, Biwi Aur Gangster has created a new album symphony titled 'Earth Voices', featuring #ShreyaGoshal.

lets-hear-earth-voices-before-they-are-gone
Abhishek Ray who is known for creating India’s first private wildlife refuge- Sitabani Wildlife Reserve said, this project is his way of expressing love for wildlife. “ I wanted to create something where language isn't a barrier. With 'Earth Voices' we are talking to global listeners, global animals and sounds that the entire planet makes.  If it was in Hindi, only people from India would listen and we wanted to go beyond our country. With ‘Earth Voices’ I want to generate concern and support for our diminishing wildlife and vanishing natural heritage. We have very little time left to listen to the earth voices, let’s hear them before they are gone.

The makers released 3 teasers in early April featuring mysterious voices of the planet belted out by the Shreya along with rare cinematic visuals cut to delicately crafted music by Abhishek Ray.

Talking about working with singer Shreya Ghosal on this unconventional music form he said, “I have worked with Shreya on many projects and she is an amazingly talented and versatile singer. For 'Earth Voices' we have used a different kind of richness and texture in her voice. It is the operatic side of her voice. I created a symphony like in an opera instead of a song to overcome the language barrier. So that the audience in the entire world will be able to understand it and it will be palatable to all kinds of people. “

Apart from films, Abhishek has a history of doing cutting edge non film albums for which he bagged the prestigious Mirchi Music Award recently. He was introduced to the industry by the legendary Gulzar with their first collaboration called Udaas Paani.

While interacting with fans, Varun expressed the reason why he chose to do the film and a character like Dan he said, " October is the absolute truth of life, The film teaches you how to deal with life and death. Life is not always going to be rosy and I have shown the good part with my films li wanted to show the bad parts too. I give alot of credit to Banita for my acting she has done a fantastic job and the film is very close to my heart."

Talking about the drastic change in his character choice he said, he will continue to make people laugh and entertain, "I am very aware that people are used to seeing me in a certain way. Always upbeat, happy and in comedy films. I love making everyone laugh and entertaining them and I will keep doing that. October comes from an extremely special place from my heart because my career forwarded I just felt that I started becoming more selfish and i wanted to do a selfless character like Dan."

The 'Badlapur' actor also pleaded his fans that, we should not lose the humanity in human as a growing generation, "Now that the film is out I can finally say this. Life is so unpredictable we don't know when we might lose someone who is close to us. It is so important to give time to people in life and know what is your priority in life. Your priority is not to send a message or emoticon that's not love or care because after a person is gone you re not going to remember a WhatsApp msg. That memory of theirs has to be in your head and your heart.

Being selfless is another power I am not saying I am selfless, Dan is a character I played. Dan is within all of us we have just forgotten it with time. So let's not lose the humanity in human and that's what i wanted to say with 'October'.

Keith Sequeira - Turns Baddie For Udaan

After playing the hopeless romantic royalty in Love Ka Hai Intezaar, model, VJ & actor #KeithSequeira will now play the ultimate bad boy in #Udaan and has already shot the first few episodes looking every inch dapper in tailored suits.

keith-sequeira-turns-baddie-for-udaan
Keith Sequeira was touted as the lover boy after his stint on the biggest reality show Bigg Boss, which fetched him a mass female following. This time around the actor will be seen in a negative avatar and he believes it to be sexier, “Negative roles are a challenge for the actor & more when you are seen differently in the public eye, the soft spoken and composed guy.”

“It's quite seductive honestly, to be the bad guy on screen. According to me, every negative role clashes with your sensibilities and is quite empowering, to be bad, hence the conflict when portraying the negative side. It definitely is essential for the normal push and pull of the bad in every daily soap.”
  
While the audiences are engrossed in the intense murder scene on their TV screens, what goes behind is entirely a different vibe. Keith recalls his first day on the sets where they broke into laughter during a murder scene, “While shooting my first scene for the show, which had me kill my partner with a blade, we kept laughing through the shoot as it was a strange shot to portray. I did in fact watch the characterization of various villains in films to get into the skin of my character.”

The celebrities have demanded severe punishment for the "horrifying" crime.

Priyanka Chopra: How many more children like baby Asifa will be sacrificed at the intersect of religion and politics? How many more children will have to suffer unimaginable crimes before we wake up? I'm disgusted. It's time for swift action. We owe it to Asifa and to humanity.

Kamal Haasan: Does it have to be your own daughter for you to understand? She could've been mine. I feel angry as a man, father and a citizen for failing Asifa. I am sorry my child we didn't make this country safe enough for you. I will fight for justice at least for future kids like you. We mourn you and won't forget you.

bollywood-celebrities-attends-special-screening-of-october
‘October’ revolves around unconditional love between character of Varun Dhawan and Banita Sandhu, talking about film, Shoojit said, “The word ‘unconditional’ is used like a jargon nowadays, but what is that unconditional love? In October, I’ve tried to create a situation where we can really experience what it means. There are some very small but significant references in the film. Juhi Chaturvedi (the writer of October) and my writing process is such that we work on a thought and borrow elements from our life experiences to explain and elaborate that thought.”

“The idea was there with me from 2004. It is an intensely personal story. A few things happened in my life, which I can talk about once the film is released. Once you have experienced the film, we can talk about it. So, it stayed with me since then, and then we worked on it. There is no definition to love. It is a feeling. So, I say feel October, experience October.”

‘October’ revolves around Dan (Varun Dhawan), a student of hotel management is an intern at a top hotel in Delhi along with his batch mates. An incident occurs at the hotel where one of his colleagues Shiuli (Banita Sandhu), lands up at the hospital. This affects Dan far deeply than he ever imagined, and thereon, he embarks on an emotional journey where he seeks answers and love in the strangest of circumstances.

Bollywood celebrities attend special screening of Prabhu Deva starrer Mercury

Makers of #Mercury hosted special screening of the film on Thursday in Mumbai. Bollywood celebrities like #PrabhuDeva, #Tamannaah, #Mithoon, #JayantilalGada, Anant Mahadevan and #SonuSood attended special screening of the film.

bollywood-celebrities-attend-special-screening-of-mercury
Here’s what celebrities had to say about the film.

Prabhu Deva - It’s a new genre and I am playing negative character in it.  I am excited for it because first time I am playing a different role so I am looking forward to reactions from audience. I hope people loves this film and it should do good business at the box-office.

Tamannaah - I have worked with Prabhu (Prabhu Deva) sir and I think I am lucky to train under him when he is choreographer, actor or director. He is such a multi-talented person. This film’s concept is really new because it’s a silent film and it’s in thriller space. I just saw‘Quiet Place’ and this hasn’t attempted by anyone in India so I am quite excited for it. I guess, all the characters in this film are not able to hear and speak which would be very interesting to watch. I think such films don’t need a language and I feel that’s the plus point of this film. Actors like me and Prabhu sir has such a North Indian connect but there are certain films which come our way where language is not a barrier because subject itself is a strong point so I am looking forward to see how Prabhu sir has done it.

Sonu Sood – I am pretty excited about the film. He has worked with me as a director, co-actor and choreographer so I really want to wish him all the best. I hope the film do well as people always Prabhu sir’s work.

I want all releasing films to do well says Abhay Deol

#AbhayDeol who is busy promoting his upcoming film #NanuKiJaanu said he wants all releasing films on the day to well.

i-want-all-releasing-films-to-do-well-says-abhay-deol
Abhay Deol interacted with media to promote his upcoming ‘Nanu Ki Jaanu’ on Wednesday in Mumbai.

‘Nanu Ki Jaanu’ release on the same day as 4 other films including Rajkummar Rao's awaited ‘Omerta’, ‘Daas Dev’, ‘High Jack’ and ‘Beyond the Clouds’.

When asked Abhay will this clash of films affect ‘Nanu Ki Jaanu’, he said, “I hope all films do well and I think it is possible. We have audience in numbers. People are aware of these films which are releasing on Friday so if you market your film well then, they will go to watch your film. After that, a film will pave its own way through word of mouth. Marketing will serve a purpose to bring attention and awareness then, the film to do well depends upon the quality of it. I believe we have enough audience to sustain 4-5 films at a time."

Talking about Ishaan's film 'Beyond The Clouds', Abhay said, “I am a big fan of Majid Majidi films so I am looking forward to his film (Beyond the Clouds). I want people to know that he is really talented and humble filmmaker and we are releasing our film along with his film. So, I want his film, Rajkummar’s film (Omerta) and our film to do well and if all these films are good they definitely they will find its audience.”

When asked to reveal some details about his character in ‘Nanu Ki Jaanu’, Abhay said, and “My character name is ‘Nanu’ He comes from a criminal background. He forcefully takes over people’s house in low rates and sells it to higher prices and one day, a female ghost comes in his life because of her he is not able to do his criminal activities. From criminal, he becomes a scared man. I think in that, there is comedy and redemption for that character.”

She said, “I don’t think it exists in Industry! Today some girl asked me this question, did it happened in Bigg Boss as well? Some Pakistani girl asked me whether Bigg Boss is a pious show. Well, the show which is hosted by Salman Khan will always be a pure and pious show. I haven’t seen any such demand from anyone within the Industry, people who are actually doing good work.”

Further adding, Arshi said, “I am not sure about outside people, who claim to be director and producer, they can do whatever.”

Today’s actresses are professional who celebrates each other’s success

Veteran Filmmaker #SudhirMishra who is busy promoting his upcoming film #DaasDev has said that today’s actresses are professional who celebrates each other’s success.

todays-actress-are-professional-who-celebrate-each-others-success
Sudhir Mishra interacted with media at launch of new cuisine and bar menu at Drinkery 51 restaurant on Wednesday in Mumbai.

There have been constant media reports that there is cold war between lead actress of ‘Daas Dev’ Richa Chadha and Aditi Rao Hydari and that’s the reason they are not coming together to promote their film, reacting to those reports, Mishra said, “Today’s actresses are different. It is not way media perceive them like yesteryear actress who used to fight during a film. They are professional actress, hope best for each other and celebrate success of each other.”

Sudhir Mishra is known for creating strong female characters through his films so when asked Mishra whether he thinks that work environment for women has improved in the film industry over the years, he said, “There are two types of industries. First one is working industry which includes production houses and filmmakers who are continuously making movies for last 5-6 years and in that section, atmosphere and environment for working women in film industry has definitely changed. There are lots of things on which we can be improved and in that, we all have to contribute towards it. Ideal industry is such where women are safe, secure and they get equal amount of remuneration and respect along with their male counterparts be it cameraperson, actor or filmmaker. I think we should create safe and welcoming environment for them to showcase their potential and if you see larger picture right now, it is not the case and we have to work towards that but again, I would say that in working industry that’s situation is much better as compared to previous period.”

Talking about ‘Daas Dev’ rap song which features Sudhir Mishra and Saurabh Shukla, Mishra said, “It’s done by me and Saurabh Shukla. It gives idea about story and character of the film. Our film is political thriller. It will take audience on emotional and thrilling ride. It’s a story about intoxication of power and alcohol but its reverse journey from Daas to Dev from the original novel of Sharat Chandra Chattopadhyay’s ‘Devdas’. Through the songs of the film, we are trying to break the myth that our film is not similar to earlier films which was based on ‘Devdas’. Its story of strong characters of Paro and Dev and how they overcome intoxication of power in the film. In general, we see that there are fixers in game of politics and in our film, there is dialogue that you can fix a business and relations but it is not easy to fix love.”

In future, audience will see more of me says Abhay Deol

#AbhayDeol who is busy promoting his upcoming film #NanuKiJaanu has said that in future people will see more of him.

in-future-audience-will-see-more-of-me-abhay-deol
Abhay Deol interacted with media to promote ‘Nanu Ki Jaanu’ on Wednesday in Mumbai.

Abhay Deol is known for being choosy when it comes to work in films. Abhay Deol last seen in ‘Haapy Bhag Jayegi’ which released in 2016 and in 2018, he is featuring in ‘Nanu Ki Jaanu’ when asked Abhay whether he has become super choosy for choice of films, he said, “I have been always choosy about it but I try not to take long breaks in between my two films but it happens sometimes especially because I don’t work in formula films and films which excite me are being made in less numbers. Therefore, it takes so much time between release of two films but since last year, I have been busy as I shoot for 5 films and in this year also, I will be shooting for 2-3 films.”

“Lately, I have noticed that people are thinking differently while making their films and taking big chances with it. When I was doing different of kind films at that time, people were open to that kind of films because multiplexes were being made and it had that kind of exposure for the films but when the number of opening a multiplex declined then distribution of that kind of films also got affected. Now, digital platform has made its entry and I think people who belong to digital platform must be saying to makers to create certain kind of content and not to follow star image as they want to create certain image of their own because that, there is sense excitement in the industry so hopefully, audience will lot more of me in future”

‘Nanu Ki Jaanu’ shares same release date with films like ‘Omerta’, ‘Daas Dev’, ‘High Jack’ and ‘Beyond the Clouds’ so when asked Abhay will this clash of films affect his film, he said, “I hope all films do well and I think it is possible. We have audience numbers. People have awareness about these films which are releasing on Friday so if you market your film well then, they will go to watch your film and after that, film will pave its own way through word of mouth. Marketing will serve a purpose to bring attention and awareness then, the film to do well depends upon quality of it. I believe we have audience to sustain 4-5 films at a time.

“I am big fan of Majid Majidi films so I am looking forward to his film (Beyond the Clouds). I want people know that he is really talented and humble filmmaker and we are releasing our film along with his film so, I want his film to do well, Rajkummar’s film (Omerta) and our film to do well and if all these film are good they definitely they will find its audience.”

Talking about his character in ‘Nanu Ki Jaanu’, Abhay said, and “My character name is ‘Nanu’ He comes from a criminal background. He forcefully takes over people’s house in low rates and sells it to higher prices and one day, female ghost comes in his life because of her he is not able to do his criminal activities. From criminal he becomes a scared man. I think in that, there is comedy and redemption for that character.”

‘Nanu Ki Jaanu’ is love story between ghost and crook so when asked Abhay whether he believes in ghosts in real life, he said, “I think it exists. I don’t have any personal experience with them so it doesn’t mean that it doesn’t exist. I am sure they exist and I take neutral stand on these things. It is improper to think that you know that all. It’s like thinking universe revolves around earth but it’s not that, earth revolve the sun.”
