Prithviraj receives a huge thumps up from critics for Aurangazeb

As Aurangazeb saw its release today, actor Prithviraj Sukumaran walked away with stellar reviews as he essays the role of a tough clean-cut cop with élan.

Says critic Gayatri Sankar ,Zee news “Prithviraj has been able to bounce back with élan. The Malayalee actor has an awesome Hindi and all that a hero ought to have in order to rank among the elite league. With this film, Prithviraj has indeed announced his arrival loud and clear.”

Adds Sukanya Verma,Rediff, “Prithviraj Sukumaran’s clean-cut persona stands out in a role that demands subtle cynicism, restrained force, suppressed emotionality and dry humour”.

Says acclaimed critic and trade analyst Taran Adarsh, “Prithviraj, who debuted on the Hindi screen with AIYYAA, gets a meatier part this time, but the challenge lies in convincing the spectator that he looks his part of a North Indian. It’s evident that the talented actor has polished his diction and speaks his lines effortlessly”.

Not only did the actor have to flawlessly deliver his dialogues while dubbing for the film but he also plays narrator in several parts of the Aurangazeb ,for which Prithvi put in a lot of hardwork to polish his Hindi diction and unlearn most of what he knew – Says Prithviraj, “When Atul (director, Sabharwal) approached me, he’d told me that giving the voiceover would be a bigger challenge than playing a cop in the film because that’s a role I have played multiple times in my films down south. I accepted the challenge and hope I’ve lived up to his expectations.”

Statement from Mr Raghu Iyer, CEO, Rajasthan Royals

All of the Rajasthan Royal owners, management, captain, coach and players and staff are shocked and disappointed at the entire situation which has caused immense distress to us all.

Rajasthan Royals wishes to clarify a number of matters, especially in relation to comments made in the media about the RR players currently under investigation:

– RR has launched a comprehensive internal investigation, and will make all information available to the authorities to assist with any on-going inquiries

– RR is closely coordinating with the BCCI and the IPL Governing Council to take whatever steps may be necessary in the current situation

– RR has noted statements which have been made today, including by Ajit Chandila’s lawyer, Mr. Rakesh Kumar, suggesting that it was made aware of such matters: these are completely unfounded and are totally refuted. RR will take legal action in the event that such defamatory statements continue to be made by any person

– RR has also noted statements which suggest that there have been other related instances in the past. RR absolutely confirms that it has never had any knowledge of any such matters. RR works closely with the ACSU, and has always fully complied with all of its related obligations, as a participant in the IPL

– All RR players are fully aware of the zero-tolerance approach of the franchise with regard to corruption and have obligations in that regard through their player contracts with IPL and the franchise

Rajasthan Royals has suffered enormously as a result of the alleged actions of these players, and will fully support the BCCI and other authorities in rooting out this evil from the game of cricket.


· Special Interactive Premiere of ‘Ekulti Ek’ on Thursday, May 23

· Actor-Director Sachin Pilgaonkar, debutante Shriya Pilgaonkar and Ashok Saraf to interact live with film goers in five theatres at the same time

· Virtual Premieres at 5 theatres – Citylight (Mumbai), Gold (Thane), Prabhat (Pune), Damodar (Nashik) and Big Anjali (Aurangabad)

Mumbai, May 17, 2013: With actor Sachin Pilgaonkar completing 50 years of his illustrious film career on May 23, 2013, he offers a golden jubilee treat to his fans by showcasing the special virtual interactive premiere of his new film ‘Ekulti Ek’ starring his daughter, Shriya. Sachin’s first film to have a virtual premiere will be shown to viewers in UFO digital theatres located in five different places in Maharashtra – Mumbai, Pune, Thane, Nashik and Aurangabad –at the same time. Producer-Director-Actor Sachin has taken the significant step of inviting the masses to a virtual premiere show of his new film ‘Ekulti Ek’.

Citylight in Mahim, Gold in Thane, Prabhat in Pune, Damodar in Nashik and Big Anjali in Aurangabad are the five theatres selected for the virtual premiere show, to be held 6.30 pm onwards, on 23 May. The sale of tickets for this show will start from 20th May. Based on the sensitive theme of father-daughter relationship, Ekulti Ek is an entertainer to be shown throughout the state from 24th May.

Film-goers sitting in UFO Digital theatres at all these five locations will be able to see and interact ‘live’ with Sachin, his daughter Shriya and the versatile Ashok Saraf, who will be seated at the UFO studio. Also, viewers at one location will be able to see and hear those at another, while they interact with Sachin, Shriya and Ashok. No Hindi film producer has so far attempted such an initiative, pioneered now as part of the Marathi film ‘Ekulti Ek’. And this happened on the day exactly 50 years after his first film ‘Ha Maza Marg Ekala’ was released in the state.

“A film is made for its viewers,” said Sachin Pilgaonkar, “but they are kept deprived from the premiere show. A film is first shown to people in the industry, who are no doubt important, but it is our fans who sustain us and our efforts. I therefore thought it important to show them the premiere. On the happy occasion of the golden jubilee of my career in the film industry, this virtual premiere is a small repayment of the debt I owe to my viewers.”

Mr. Ashish Malushte, Chief Financial Officer, UFO Moviez India, said, “ We at UFO Moviez are happy to provide our unique digital cinema technology to Sachin Pilgaonkar to support the virtual premiere of his new film ‘Ekulti Ek’, starring his daughter, across 5 different places. Our technology shows the world that it is possible to unite film lovers in different locations of India with popular film personalities at the same time. We believe our satellite technology empowers the aam admi to connect with the stars. We are confident that Sachin’s new film ‘Ekulti Ek’ will break box office records and his daughter Shriya will make a very successful debut.”

Generally, premiere shows of a film are glittering, ultra glamorous events held in the presence of stars of the film world. For years, cine-goers have been very fond of premiere shows. To revel in the dazzling scenes from these shows shown on the TV and in the photographs published in the print media has been their favourite hobby. In recognition of this fact, Vijay Anand had used the premiere of ‘Mother India’ in his film ‘Kala Bazaar’ and many had watched the film again and again just to see that premiere. And now, a Marathi director-actor-producer does the same in a true-to-life manner to set a new trend!
