Vidya Balan bags the Critics Choice Awards for Kahaani.

Powerhouse performer,actress Vidya Balan ,started the year with a bang as she bagged her first award for the season ,The Best Actress (Critics Choice) for Kahaani ,which also won the Best Film (critics), Best Director (critics), Best Story and Best editing.

Lauded for her portrayal of Vidya Bagchi, a pregnant woman in search of her missing husband in the city of Kolkata during the Durga Puja festivities,Balan walked away with the honors which will see its telecast January 20th at 8PM IST.

The award came as no surprise especially since the critics were all praise for the actress ever since the thriller released.

Said acclaimed critic and trade analyst Taran Adarsh , “Post The Dirty Picture, the admiration for the National Award winning actress Vidya has scaled woozy altitudes and let me affirm, the supremely talented actress delivers a performance that’s at par with her former accomplishments.”

Said Madhureeta Mukherjee Zoom, “Once again, a ‘pregnant’ Vidya, ironically displays more ‘male ornaments’ (excuse the watering down) than most heroes.”

Shabana Azmi lauded Balan for her performance and said, “I had to watch Kahaani because of Vidya. I was bowled over by her performance. As an actor, I could see she was making all the right moves throughout the film. There was not a single artificial note in her performance.”

On his fascination to cast Balan, Ghosh said, “The good thing about performers like Vidya is that when you give them something, they take it with them and bring something of their own. For me, having Vidya was a boon because she did so many things herself. What she has brought to her character is completely her own.”


The Race to promote Race 2.

It came as no surprise that
much before the film hit the floors, Race 2 was flooded with association and in-film offers from over 15 brands, thanks to its huge ensemble starcast that boasts of names like John Abraham,Saif Ali Khan , Deepika Padukone,Anil Kapoor and Jacqueline.

And while huge names like Audi,Van Huesen and Tanishq came on board, the film’s marketing and promotions ascend to an all time high,with the starcast going all out to promote Race 2 as the film readies for its release.

Apart from traveling to Delhi,Chandigarh,Ahmedabad,Pune and Bangalore , the team will even travel to Dubai to meet the local press and then to London for a press conference organized at The Hippodrome Casino – Leicester keeping with the mafia theme of the film.

Interesting this would be the maximum amount of cities actor Saif Ali Khan has traveled to for a film’s promotions .

While the starcast are in the process of shooting for several reality shows including Bigg Boss,Comedy Circus ,Nach Baliye and Sa Re Ga Ma finale ,the film’s leading ladies Deepika Padukone and Jacqueline Fernandes have also started scorching the award season performing to the film’s hit songs at the Zee Awards and Umang Police show.

Says producer Ramesh Taurani, “We are excited with the feedback coming our way for the film….The starcast is equally excited and is going all out to promote Race 2.”

If that wasn’t all, a special game will soon be launched on the film in association with an internet partner.

Directed by Abbas-Mastan , Race 2 is scheduled to release January 25th, 2013.


Jacqueline Fernandez all praise for her Race 2 co-stars

Barely 6 films old, Jacqueline Fernandez has always been the keen learner and couldn’t have been more excited to be working alongside some of Bollywood’s biggest stars in her forthcoming film Race 2.

The actress while shooting with her co-stars couldn’t help but praise their professionalism. Said Jacqueline “I must thank Saif for helping me perform to the best of my abilities. He would advise me how to underplay my character. I learned the nuances of acting from him.”

Talking about her bonding with co-star Deepika, she says, “Deepika is the height of professionalism. I have just two scenes with her but her dedication towards her work helped me imbibe this quality.”

Ask the actress if she’s insecure amidst an ensemble starcast and quick comes the reply , “Every actor wants their movie to do well, and they have a larger fan base who will watch your film.”

Playing a femme fatale con artist, Jacqueline will next be seen in Race 2, produced by Tips,directed by duo Abbas-Mustan which is scheduled to release 25thJanuary,2013.

Lion Raju Manwani says, “The event had all the movers and shakers of society. Many celebrities from TV, Films and Music have agreed to perform as well. What will separate this event from others is there will be no nominations, all the winners will be pre announced.

We, Lions feel that achievers in all sectors need to be given their due…”

Crime Patrol Special epiosde on Delhi Gang rape case

This weekend Crime Patrol brings to you yet another heart-wrenching story which created a burning sensation among all Indians. Our capital city, New Delhi, now a days most popularly known as rape capital of the nation, is again in limelight after the Gang rape case of a 23 years old girl. The young girl was beaten and gang raped on a chilly winter evening last year. She died thirteen days later while undergoing emergency treatment in abroad for brain and gastrointestinal damage from the assault.

One fine evening, she and her friend boarded a private bus, thinking it was a public bus. The only other passengers were five men who were friends of the driver, who then assaulted the pair.

Deeply traumatized with this incident, creative director of the show Mr. S. Subramanian said, “We need to keep the flame of the candles of millions of Indians burning. The anger cannot just subside. Not until there is a deterrent to this malaise. We need to tell the ones whom we have elected to decide for the better of the nation and its citizens, we cannot forget and we will not forget. Crime Patrol promises to keep this fire of anguish, this cry for justice alive.”

The young woman’s ordeal appears to have inspired a massive amount of self-reflection in India with respect to how women and girls are treated. The death of the girl has sparked a new wave of peaceful protests across India.

Intense anchor Anup Soni said, “We want citizen of India to get aware about the rape and molestation cases which happens daily with the females, which are not even registered in the police files. Two things on which people should think through this episode. Firstly government of India should have to make strict rules for criminals so that before committing such crimes, there has to be a fear in their mind. Secondly, change has to come from an individual. Everyone should have to respect women of their own house”.

Entire nation is in a deep shock and in pain by the present situation of the assault and molestation cases happening very frequently with the women of the country. Crime Patrol dedicates the special episode to aware the citizens and to make them rethink for the change required in the country.

Tune-in to watch the two special episodes of Crime Patrol on 11th & 12th January 2013 at 11 p.m. only on Sony Entertainment Television
