Not bothered by how big or small a character is says Kajol

Actress #Kajol admits that she is not bothered by how big or small a character is but how much of an impact it leaves on her.

@instamag-not-bothered-by-how-big-or-small-character-is-says-kajol
Kajol interacted with media after attending the trailer launch of Hindi version of 'Incredibles 2' on Friday. The actress has voiced the character Elastigirl in the film.

When asked what draws Kajol to play any character in a film, she said, “It should be the kind of character that you feel you can build and make something amazing out of it. So that's really my only requirement. I never think whether I am main lead of the film or whether I have enough to do in the film. Whether you have two scenes or half a scene to do, it should be that kind of work which just leaves such a solid impact that will stay with you for much longer."

Kajol has stepped into the shoes of Holly Hunter in Hindi-dubbed version of 'Incredibles 2', the voice of Elastigirl, also known as Helen Parr, in the English original directed by Brad Bird. Elastigirl can stretch her body into many shapes and forms.

Asked whether Bollywood is unable to match up to the standards of making superwoman or supergirls film, she said: "Not really, not at all. I think we have lot of films. In fact recently, people are writing specifically women-centric films. So I don't think that’s the case but yes, I do feel that as an animated picture company, they have lot more freedom because they have an international audience to play with."

I was like so what if I can’t actually get those superpowers but at least I can dub for somebody who has those superpowers but I think dubbing is not the same as actually doing it. I actually don’t like to dub for my own films.”

DID star Paulson Thomas deserves a gift of happiness

However big a fame and popularity one attains, he or she should not ever forget the roots of humanity. #PaulsonThomas is one such personality who has achieved a lot at a very young age yet understands and values the *struggles* one has to go through to reach those heights. His gesture of constantly wanting to help needy ones and celebrate happy times with them is quite commendable.

@instamag-did-star-paulson-thomas-deserves-gift-of-happiness
Celebrating his birthday with the children of Smile Foundation was something Paulson wanted to do for a long time.  It was not his first time though. It was his mothers teaching to him that one should always help the needy if he is capable of doing it and there should not be a stop to it ever.  Isn't it a wonderful thought? Paulson always believed in charity and has done a lot of donations and social service in such organizations before. It was amazing to see how he interacted and tried to keep all the beautiful children from Smile Foundation confortable and well attended to.  He was with them and for them all the time. With this event he intends to support the education of this amazing kids. 

Hailing from a non-metropolitan city of Kerala, Paulson faced a lot of difficulties to sustain his passion for dance and entertainment. But his never give up attitude assured his progress and eventually he got his break with Dance India Dance Season 1. Immediately after that Remo D'souza cast him in the movie 'F. A. L. T. U' . He was also a popular face in the show 'Dance ke Superstars' and acted in India's first 3D dancing movie ABCD (Any Body Can Dance). Paulson became a face to be recognized with his witty and funny performances in both. No wonder he absolutely adores Remo Sir. "If there is anybody after my parents whobhas supported and encouraged me always, especially in Mumbai is Remo Sir", says Paulson.  And why not. Being an amazing down to earth person, there is no wonder in Paulson attributing his achievements to his idol.

@instamag-leena-yadav-unveils-rajma-chawal-first-look-feat-rishi-kapoor
Director Leena Yadav shared a candid first look still from the forthcoming movie on her social media profile. She wrote, “Funny, we live in the space age generation yet fail to communicate with people that matter the most? Experience the social journey of a father and son with Rajma Chawal, this 31st August! @chintskap #AnirudhTanwar @AmyraDastur93 @Aparshakti @SaarthiE  #RajmaChawalOn31stAugust”

The film will revolve around a father-son duo and deals with generation gap-related conflicts, starring Rishi Kapoor, Amyra Dastur, Aparshakti Khurrana and Anirudh Tanwar.

The idea behind the film is to illustrate how everything happens over the mobile phone today. People would rather catch up over a chat than have a proper conversation and this affects parent-children relationships. Parents are struggling to cope with technological advancements and Rishi Kapoor portrays the many shades of a father, from funny to intense.

Tollywood film director Anninditaa Dasgupta became 'Aam public entertainment' in Bollywood

#AnninditaaDasgupta from Kolkata, has previously directed Bengali movie titled #Bandh with cast inclusive of renowned names from Bengali film industry like #SoumitraChatterjee, #KharajMukherjee, #DebdutGhosh etc.

@instamag-tollywood-film-director-anninditaa-dasgupta-became-aam-public-entertainment-in-bollywood
Now she is making her presence felt in the Bollywood industry through her maiden Hindi production under the banner 'Aam Public Entertainment'. The project started in 2018 and the pre-production work is underway. 

As a true believer that film making is an art of telling interesting story to the audience in a captivating manner Anninditaa chooses a unique perspective to convey a socially responsible message through her work while entertaining the audience through witty dialogues, a gripping story line and a captivating tightly narrated script that has become her signature style of film making.

The story revolves around a money based game show around a young lad of today’s era who believes that money is everything. As the story progresses, through a series of events that are funny yet, soul stirring and at times tragic, the audience is taken on a roller coaster of emotions and thoughts. Then as the story unwraps slowly,  it reveals that the money is valueless compared to other many important things in life. However in today’s world we never understand this. 

In this story the message that is conveyed is that we all should value life and its gifts more than money and must avoid the rat race to be richer money wise for there are much better alternates to make a sense out of one’s life. We all know that whatever we earn throughout our lives will remain in this mortal world and one day we will leave this world in the same manner that we arrived, stark naked without anything. So what is this ever raging inferno of greed for money all about? Is it valuable or not? 

Annindita keeps the storyline well paced and the strength provided to the characters provide an interesting view to the audience of all genres. It also raises points to ponder for the audience about the way we shape our lives.

raj-kundra-issues-statement-in-bitcoin-scam
According to sources, the agency has questioned Kundra about other people he involved to promote Bitcoin. But now the Raj Kundra issues a statement clarifying his role in the whole scam.

The statement read, “Mr Raj Kundra CMD of Viaan Industries Ltd was summoned by the Enforcement Directorate merely as a witness. An enquiry is underway by the concerned regulatory authorities and Mr Raj Kundra stands committed to extend all his cooperation to the law enforcement agency”

Commenting on the articles, Mr Raj Kundra, CMD said “I am terribly disappointed by the irresponsible reporting carried out by some sections of the media. Clarity on the issue should have been sought before carrying such headlines. The authorities, summoned me merely as a witness, as the accused Amit Bharadwaj happens to be an acquaintance and some introductions were made hence there is a certain protocol being followed by the agencies. Amit Bharadwaj was intending to buy a team in our poker league and got into a contract with us for the same. However, he was expelled on account of non-payment of fees and I was called as a witness in this connection. While we continuously strive to keep taking steps to improve our reputation, these type of unconfirmed, baseless, reports severely dent our market perception and erode investor sentiments”
