Kamaal ka cute Entertainer!

As a little child, he saw a film with his parents and an objectionable scene that embarrassed both him and his parents stayed in his mind. Little Priyan decided then that when he grew up, he would make clean entertainers. Today, Priyan looks at Percept Pictures’ Kamaal Dhamaal Malamaal, his latest offering and smilingly terms it “a cute entertainer.”
Priyan promises a great village drama unfolding in the form of Kamaal Dhamaal Malamaal. Kamaal Dhamaal Malamaal is the journey of “Bakri” Johny aka Shreyas who is the target of every villager. What keeps him going is his hope and love for Maria (Madhhurima). The only hitch is that Maria is the daughter of the village goon Peter (Paresh Rawal) and Johny’s father David’s (Om Puri) arch enemy. At this juncture, Nana enters the life of Johny as the silent, strong, but very very hungry man. And what follows is endless Kamaal Dhamaal Malamaal!

Grins he when quizzed if KDM is a remake, “Kamaal Dhamaal Malamaal is adapted from the Malayalam film, Marykkundoru Kunjaadu.”

Armed with a starcast known for their histrionics including Nana Pateker, Paresh Rawal, Shreyas Talpade, Om Puri, Shakti Kapoor, Razak Khan, Neeraj Vora and newfind Madhhurima, Priyan, who is three decades into filmmaking with 86 films is still very modest… “Are you looking at a great box office collection? I would love to, but nobody can prove a box office hit when he is making a film. It is the same with me too. I have survived for thirty years with 84 films in four languages and yet I have not found the formula for a successful film, even before it is made. As long as my films excite the audience I am happy. The audience today wants different kind of films. Films like ‘Kahaani’, ‘Housefull ‘and ‘3 Idiots’have proved that, and how!” Need we add, KDM, all set to hit the marquee on Sept 28, is one such film!


Varun Dhawan , a savior for Sahil Anand

Debutant Sahil Anand who would be seen in the most awaited movie of the year Dharma Production’s “Student Of the Year”. Recalling one incident, the former Roadies 4 contestant had a near death experience while shooting for the film. For a sequence Sahil who didn’t know swimming initially, had to specially learn swimming, though he acquired the much needed knowledge he wasn’t confident shooting the scene. The swimming scene was shot in an Olympic size swimming pool and Sahil Anand along with Varun Dhawan, Siddharth Malhotra were present.

It was for the fourth time the scene was being shot, and everything went according to plan till the swimmers reached the middle of the pool and Sahil Anand’s phobia took control of him and he started panicking and started to move his hands and legs frantically to keep afloat. Varun Dhawan who is a good swimmer and who was swimming alongside Sahil Anand realised His absence and turned back to see him struggling and losing control, soon an eyewitness adds, “Varun Dhawan swam swiftly across and reached Sahil Anand and helped him reach the sides so he could hold something and was pulled out of the swimming pool. Everyone present including Sahil Anand thanked Varun for taking out him out of such a difficult situation.

The whole crew was scared as they realized that it could have led to a tragic mishap, and they called the doctor immediately to see if Sahil was fine. The professional that Sahil is insisted that they reshoot the scene and was confident that he would compete the scene without any further hiccups. Even though the crew didn’t want to shoot and take a chance, on the persistence of Sahil Anand they went ahead with the shot and it came out to be one of the many best shots in the movie. As soon as the scene was over the whole crew applauded the efforts of Sahil Anand and congratulated him for overcoming his phobia of swimming.

Tuesday, 11th September, 2012, Pune: AyuGen BiosciencesPvt Ltd, which focuses on specialized genomic tests, today announced the successful launch of the digene HPV test in Pune, which is currently the gold standard in the world in cervical cancer screening for women. This test helps in early detection of cervical pre-cancers (stage before cancer develops) where the woman has a very good chance (almost 100%) of getting rid of the disease. The test detects the presence of 13 High-risk HPV typeswhich are precursors for this deadly disease.

“After the decoding of human genome in the year 2000, new and unknown pathways of disease etiology and physiology have been discovered. “One drug fits all” concept will be replaced by “personalized medicine” approach that will be dependent on individual’s genotype (DNA)”, said Mr. Manish Pungliya, Director &CEO, AyuGen Biosciences. “With the successful launch of digeneHPV Test, AyuGen, with the help of the doctor community, aims to bring the incidence of this deadly but preventable disease significantly down, as has been shown in many studies worldwide, by making the test available locally. Testing once in 5 to 8 years after the age 30 is better than being caught by surprise (cancer) as the disease is mostly without symptoms.”, he further added. AyuGen eventually plans to make the test accessible and available for women who need it the most by working with the Government, NGOs and public health specialists and to help assist implementation of HPV based screening programs, which are proven to be cost-effective with better results towards reduction in incidence and mortality.

Cervical cancer is the second most common cancer among women worldwide; but number one among Indian women. Globally, there are around 500,000 new cases and 274,000 deaths due to cervical cancer annually (1). In India there are over 74000 reported deaths annually due to this disease. In urban areas, cancer of the cervix account for over 40% of cancers while in rural areas it accounts for 65% of cancers as per the information from the cancer registry in Barshi (2).It is established that high-risk Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) types (2, 3) cause almost all of the cervical cancer cases.Every second woman gets exposed to the virus sometime in her life. In most women the immunity clears the infection (3). But the virus can remain dormant for years & decades. It is therefore important to screen on regular intervals to make sure that the virus has not reached to clinically significant levels that will lead to cancer. During the transition from infection to invasive disease and cancer women are mostly asymptomatic, hence all the more reason to screen regularly. Because of lack of regular screening, poor sensitivity of the currently available tests (VIA & PAP) and lack of awareness, the incidence & mortality rates are highest in our country.

There is enough evidence in medical literature on the low sensitivity of both VIA and PAPto detect pre-cancers. However, the digene HPV test is proven, established and reliable with 96% median sensitivity for detecting pre-cancers (4, 5, 6). This test is US-FDA approved and has more than 300 publications to support its strength and utility and highlight the advantages – ease of use, quality assurance since this is a lab and equipment-based test, ability to process many samples at the same time, proven high sensitivity to detect pre-cancers and proven ability to reduce incidence and mortality by nearly 50% even with a single round of HPV screening.

“Positive test result doesn’t mean presence of cancer but it identifies the risk for getting cancer in the near future if proper treatment is not taken. This test is more accurate than the traditional PAPtest because of its remarkably high median sensitivity while PAP is not as sensitive to detect high-risk women. All these women now have a better option. This test detects high-risk women even before the cellular changes set in. Secondly, once a woman is negative in this test then she doesn’t need to do PAP or HPV test for the next several years – no need to come for yearly PAP.”,said Dr. MilindDugad.

“Moreover the negative predictive value of this test is99.7%- meaning if a woman is negative in the digene HPV test she has a negligible chance of developing cancer for next several years. One of the Indian studies have followed about 30,000 women who were negative in this test for eight years &only eight of them developed cancers over these years. So, once negative the woman will need to re-test only after 3 to 5 years. The study also identified women who were at risk for cancer & got treated at the right time”, added Dr. Girish Godbole

“The digeneHPV test has a USFDA approval & has been studied on more than 8 lakh women before getting USFDA approval. Recently there was a study which followed women for 18 years. In this, the digene HPV test was the only test that predicted the risk of cervical pre-cancers for more than 15 years (ref – Castle et al 2012 JCO). Therefore, I think this test should be done even if a woman doesn’t have any symptoms starting from the age of 30. This is because those who are positive can be followed up on more regular intervals & the treatment is given even before the cancer develops. Secondly, the high negative predictive value (of more than 99%) of this test helps us managing patients in much better way than if we only reply on PAP results. There was another study in Mexico where about 50,000 women were screened for digene HPV test & PAP. Their study also showed that digene HPV test improved cervical cancer prevention in population-based testing where cytological screening is inadequate for detecting precursors of cervical cancer (ref – Lazcano-Ponce et al. CCC 2010)”, shared Dr. Jyotsna Potdar.

The digene HPV test also popularly known as the HC2 test or Hybrid capture test is a product of QIAGEN. QIAGEN is a sample and assay technology company based out of Hilden, Germany. Thecompany’s intellectual property portfolio encompasses more than 2,400 patents and licenses, including theexclusive rights to various biomarkers that can help to guide treatment decisions in personalized healthcare. Ayugen works closely with QIAGEN in creating awareness about the test with focus on the strength of the technology and benefits, its clinical validation and on-going application / implementation of the technology, in screening programs worldwide.
