Sanjay Garg, Textile Designer and Founder, Raw Mango told: “We are excited that we were able to represent and create something more than what meets the eyes – the sari is a symbol that is rooted in culture, heritage and history, which speaks to one’s individuality & identity, therefore becoming a medium to express oneself.”

Because it is infinity more exiting then love it.it is the more popular 4 letter word to live a life by and I think that's what we chose in a certain sense of the word but there is embedded love in that lust. 

My film is about seeking pleasure and it is also about the fact that its not a man's right to pleasure but also a women's right. And if you want to read between the lines or the sheets then i totally give you the onus to do that."

Zoya who's story stars Bhumi Pednekar as one of the lead said, "My story is about love and lust but it the concept is about class in India, the way we percieve it and what it means to us when we are attracted to someone."

And what we have thought about after this maybe when Abhishek is free from Zoya factor. When we will get to that it will also be very different. I think it is very important to keep shocking the audience."

When asked if he ever thought playing a role out of action genre in Parmanu was a big risk to take, John said, "I think I did madras cafe also in the past and I have done films which have been very risky for my career like water no smoking, Kabul express. A big producer that I idealize, Aditya Chopra once told me that my most intelligent choices are the ones that are different so I believe that Parmanu is that different choice and I want to continue making such different choices." 

Director Abhishek said, John is passionate and hungry for new content. "It was a delight directing John he is very passionate and the best thing about him is he will give himself away to the director. He keeps asking for time to prep and be through with the character. Also he is hungry to do new content, its not like he has a certain image so he will only do certain characters, if the story excites him he will do it."

When talking about the film that is based on real incidents Abhishek said, "Its inspired by true events but the characters are fictional. the plot taken in the film is completely real, almost 80-85% of the incident that took place back then in part of the story."

Arjun Rampal, who has had his fair share of flops and hits in his career, says from outside it might look easy, but it is not. Talking about fact and reality of film Industry, he said, “People from outside think it is all easy, you know, sit in AC van, put on good clothes and give a shot, it might look easy but it is not that easy. I think, in every profession, you have to work really hard, you have to learn about the profession, you have to better your skill and talent, and bring it to the forefront”

“How you can challenging yourself and surprise the audience, your understanding of the box-office, audience, and budgeting of the film. Considering all these factors, it is not as easy as it looks. It is a very tough job because when you find success, you get a lot of applause and appreciation, but when you don’t find success; you get a beat-down and criticism”

Further adding, Arjun said, “So that is why I think it is not as glamorous, you have to be really disciplined to be part of this industry”

Rampal's next scheduled summer release of 2018 is JP Dutta's war film "Paltan" based on the Indo-Sinian war of 1962 in which he will be seen in an ensemble cast alongside Sonu Sood, Gurmeet Choudhry, Jackie Shroff.

I think that's the plus we are getting right now, people are waiting for something big to happen in the film and, that's very exciting."

Director Abhishek Sharma said he believes the film has already created a buzz and will excite the audience more by the time of its release.

"I was sure that the subject should appeal to the people but I think the way the trailer has been cut and the way it has been marketed by John's team and the way people are reacting even to the film's song it feels amazing. Sachin Jigar has given us great music, Shubh Din the first song out was trending and now the second song, Jitni Dafa is also trending on social media. Subh Din really took the trailer forward and now with each song coming out it will peak the film's interest.

As many comments, I have read on YouTube and social media it tells me people are looking forward to this film and yes maybe we didn't get enough time for publicity but we will make up for it with good content material."

Karan said, “Of course not, Salman Khan is on a different platform, he is the big master of big mainstream cinema. Race 3 is going to be a humongous film, it is a franchise film, and it is totally a different film with a different syntax. We’re not competing or fighting, we’re out of the league to fight with Salman Khan”  

“We’re just very happy four filmmakers, who made a tiny little film. And we are grateful to Netflix for accepting it. We are not competing with anyone; we don’t have the right to compete with the magnitude of Salman Khan. I would probably go and watch Race 3 on 15th, then Lust Stories”

Amitabh Bachchan was interacting with media at the launch of OnePlus 6 mobile – ‘Discover The Speed You Need’ as their official brand ambassador along with actress Aditi Rao Hydari on Thursday in Mumbai.

Talking about why OnePlus 6 has an edge over other phones in the market, “I am the brand ambassador of this wonderful brand and it’s been a great privilege and honor for me. When I was first introduced to this by makers of it at my office that time, one of the first thing that I noticed was the fact that what was it that they wanted to introduce it into the market and I clearly remember Kyle (Kiang) saying ‘we wanted to produce something unique, different, young and something that stood out in the market.”

“I have always believed that in today’s time, the mobile phone has become an alter-ego for each one of us. Each one of us has a phone and every time, I see someone holding a phone, it somehow gives me the impression of what this guy is all about, what he is going to say and what he thinks of himself. When I hold a OnePlus 6 in my hand, I feel superior. And that is what I feel is my alter-ego,” Bachchan said while sharing the stage with Kyle Kiang, Global Head of Marketing for OnePlus.

As the duo revealed its price, Bachchan added, “There are a lot of rumours spreading around town about what the price should be. But I guess the best way is to find out ourselves. Rs 34,999 is the retail price for the OnePlus 6, ladies and gentlemen!”

Sexual intimacy in old age not linked with memory loss

Getting naughty under the sheets as well as remaining emotionally attached to #romanticpartners in old age may not be linked to declining in memory skills, finds a study.

sexual-intimacy-in-old-age-not-linked-with-memory-loss
Although lifestyle factors, level of education, smoking and drinking habits and physical activity all play a role in the rate and extent of the age-related cognitive decline, the study now shows that there is no link between sexual activity and rate of cognitive decline.

“Decline in memory performance over time was unrelated to sexual activity or emotional closeness during partnered sexual activity,” said Mark Allen of the University of Wollongong in Australia.

For the study, published in the journal Archives of Sexual Behavior, the team used data from more than 6,000 adults aged 50 and over.

Participants completed an episodic memory task and a questionnaire where they reported the frequency of intimate activities such as kissing, sexual touching and intercourse.

Allen found an overall decline in all participants’ score on the memory test over time.

Further, the study builds on previous experimental work that showed sexual activity enhances elderly rodents’ ability to recognise objects and, therefore, ultimately their episodic memory workings and overall brain health.

keep-yourself-cool-with-smart-food-habits
Chef Sudhir Nair, Executive Chef at Courtyard by Marriott and Fairfield by Marriott, Bengaluru and Chef Kasiviswanathan, the Executive Chef for Radisson Blu Atria, Bengaluru share five easy tips that will help your body cope with the heat:

* Eat and enjoy a light breakfast every morning comprising of fresh fruits and lots of liquids. Avoid citrus juices and instead opt for tender coconut or melon juice. Cucumber juice or salad would also be a great option.

Try and cut down on a heavy breakfast and avoid high starch foods with rice or wheat. Lunch should be the heaviest meal of the day in summers. Keep low on yoghurt consumption instead drink as much as buttermilk as possible. Keep your food low on spices and high on liquid.

* Do not drink chilled water or aerated beverages as it will disrupt the digestive process in the body. Keep a close watch on your sugar consumption. Ice creams though tempting in this time is rich in sugar and cream but an iced fruit lolly would be a legitimate indulgence.
* Avoid using spices such as mustard, ginger, and chilli. Avoid vegetables like tomato, peppers and garlic.

Eat fish twice a week for healthy heart

Consuming #fish which are high in Omega-3 fatty acids twice a week can help reduce the risk of heart failure, coronary heart disease, cardiac arrest and ischemic stroke, says a new scientific advisory from the American Heart Association.

eat-fish-twice-week-for-healthy-heart
The Association recommends eating two 3.5-ounce servings of non-fried fish, or about three-fourth cup of flaked fish every week.

Emphasis should be placed on eating oily fish like salmon, mackerel, herring, lake trout, sardines or albacore tuna, which are all high in omega-3 fatty acids.

"Scientific studies have established the beneficial effects of eating seafood rich in Omega-3 fatty acids, especially when it replaces less healthy foods such as meats that are high in artery-clogging saturated fat," said Eric B. Rimm, Professor at the Harvard University's T.H. Chan School of Public Health in Boston, US.

Further, the advisory, published in the journal Circulation, laid emphasis on eating fish such as shark, swordfish, tilefish, king mackerel, bigeye tuna, marlin and orange roughy that are high in mercury.

Even though mercury contamination has been linked with serious neurological problems in newborns, it does not have adverse effects on heart disease risk in adults, the advisory noted.

Moreover, the benefits of eating fish substantially outweighed any risks associated with mercury contamination, especially if a variety of seafood is consumed, it said.

#Gulzar who is proud of daughter #MeghnaGulzar's #Raazi said, he feels  fulfillment to be in the audience of his daughter's work.

fulfillment-to-be-in-audience-of-your-daughters-work-gulzar
Filmmaker Meghna Gulzar with Father Gulzar Saab and the entire Raazi team was present at the success party for the Alia Bhatt starrer film on Wednesday. 

When asked to share how it feels to be part of his daughter's work and to see her succeed he said, "After the entire journey that I have made over the years, and after coming this far all I can say is it is a fulfillment to be in the audience of your daughter's work. After a lot of difficulties, parents get the chance to reach this far and it feels very satisfying. What feels more satisfying to see the team is the one who had brought the industry so far and to this status. It makes me want to hold there hand and not lead them but follow them and see where they go."

Meghna first came with a film like Talvar and now Raazi. There have been other female directors coming out with high content-driven films like Lipstik under my Burkha by Alankrita, Manto by Nandita Das, and Gauri Shinde films like, 'Dear Zindagi', 'English Vinglish'.

When asked to talk about the era of women directors begin able to succeed with content driven films, Meghna said, "The era is very great but I don't think all the credit should only go to the women directors. If we don't call male directors- male directors why do we have to call us female directors? I think our directors today are just making good films and that is because of the producers and studios are now not afraid to act out of the box content. Which is why more different content based films are coming out and they are being made by women and men alike. the big deal and the most important thing is that good films are being made."
