Tournament Will Feature 8 World-Class Clubs Including, Real Madrid, Chelsea, A.C. Milan, Juventus, Inter Milan, Valencia, Everton and LA Galaxy

Priyanka Chopra’s debut single “Exotic” featuring Pitbull will be featured throughout the 2013 Guinness International Champions Cup as the soccer tournament’s official theme song. The announcement was made by Relevent Sports, a division of RSE Ventures and the organizer of the Guinness International Champions Cup, in conjunction with Interscope Geffen A&M and Universal Music.

Chopra, a critically acclaimed Bollywood actress and winner of the 2000 Miss World pageant, is diving into the international music scene with her new album featuring the high-energy, infusion pop, dance track “Exotic” which includes vocals from international musical sensation, Pitbull. Before her foray into music, Chopra appeared in over 40 films, she also writes columns for Indian national newspapers and was appointed a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador for Child Rights and Adolescents in 2010. A life-long soccer fan, Chopra’s musical partnership with the Guinness International Champions Cup is the latest development in her successful, international career. Chopra’s “Exotic” video featuring Pitbull premiered on VEVO last week. http://vevo.ly/uOOIzI.

The Guinness International Champions Cup, organized by Relevent Sports, a division of RSE Ventures, and broadcast by FOX, is the first-of-its-kind soccer tournament taking place across the globe with contests in Phoenix, San Francisco, Indianapolis, Los Angeles, New York, Miami and Valencia, Spain.

“We could not be more thrilled about the exceptional list of world class teams playing in this year’s tournament,” said Charlie Stillitano, CEO of Relevent Sports. “This is a landmark event in soccer and Priyanka’s debut single “Exotic” brings to life the spirit of the tournament.”

Said Priyanka Chopra “I’m really excited that ‘Exotic’ has been named the official theme song for the 2013 Guinness® International Champions Cup. As a new artist it’s such an honor any time an organization or brand chooses to use my music as their anthem. Last season my track “In My City” was released exclusively to the NFL as the featured song for the network’s Thursday Night Football series, and I would definitely be open to collaborating with other organizations like this in the future.”

Ali Zafar who will next be seen in Shaad Ali’s Kill Dill,also starring Ranveer Singh and Parineeti Chopra can’t wait to shed his cute guy image and is spending hours at the gym ,looking to build a physique that can pull off some hardcore action.

Ask Ali if he’s a method actor and he is quick to resort, “I can’t categorize myself as a method or spontaneous actor – I perform as per my director’s requirements even if that means doing workshops for a particular role , or even receiving my lines on the very day of the shoot.” The actor luckily says he has no reservations before the camera , “I’m quite relaxed before the camera.I try not to let it intimidate me. Neither do i let insecurity or stress of any kind kick in. Anxiety and creativity don’t go together for me. For me, the fun is in the process. The process is a learning ground. I like to observe and learn. ”

Prateik Babbar kisses first love Evelyn Sharma!

Evelyn Sharma has been kissed! It so happens that Prateik Babbar had fallen head-over-heels for the sparkling gal and planted a hot one on her lips, much before he consolidated his love for his lifetime companion.

Now now! Before jump to conclusions, let us tell you that this is the way Evelyn’s role unfolds in the new Prateik starrer Issaq.

But more than her first on-screen kiss, Evelyn is a tad concerned about how she will look or be evaluated for her overall performance. “Issaq was the first movie I shot for. Since then I’ve honed my acting skills many times,” she remarks.

“The actress in me evolved as I acted in films like Nautanki Saala and Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani,” says Evelyn and adds that she’s a bit nervous about how people will judge her in Issaq.

But considering her career has been on a constant upswing, we don’t think the gal as anything to worry about.

Coming up is yet another interesting character in Yaariyaan; the directorial debut of T-Series’ head honcho Bhushan Kumar’s wife Divya Kumar.

This followed by two more films she’s learnt to have just tucked in her over-flowing kitty. 2013 is turning out to be quite a roller-coaster ride for the newbie.

Vserv.mobi joins forces with IAMAI for AppFest 2013

to evangelise App Developer ecosystem

India, July 26, 2013 – Vserv.mobi, a leading Global Mobile Ad network, announced its collaboration with Internet & Mobile Association of India (IAMAI) to reinforce its commitment to the growing Indian mobile app developer community. Vserv.mobi will be powering the Hackathon session at IAMAI’s AppFest 2013 event, a team based coding marathon running over 24 hours to create an innovative app, where the winners will be rewarded with handsome cash prizes. AppFest 2013, scheduled to be held from 26th to 28th July 2013 at IIM-Ahmedabad, seeks to provide an environment for developers and entrepreneurs to come together on a unique platform, and leverage the enormous opportunity to establish India as a superpower in the global Apps economy.

Commenting on the event, Binay Tiwari, Director – Global Marketing & Product, Vserv.mobi said, “We are in an era, where the global mobile App economy is lowering the barriers to entrepreneurship. Today’s young App Entrepreneurs have an unprecedented opportunity to create products that will touch the lives of millions of mobile users across the world. Vserv is committed to fostering App Entrepreneurs across the world, and we are excited to collaborate in India with IAMAI AppFest, to further expedite the rise of India as a Superpower in the App economy.”

India has emerged as a global leader in app downloads from stores such as Android Play store, Nokia App store and SlideMe, underpinned by factors such as the influx of affordable mobile devices, rapidly increasing mobile internet penetration and mobile-ready regional content. Vserv.mobi’s recently released report on the ‘Rise of India as an App Superpower’, corroborated this trend and also indicated that mobile games account for the most downloaded content on mobile phones. Apart from the app consumption aspect, the ‘appification’ of the Indian economy is also the result of a growing breed of app entrepreneurs from tier 1 and 2 towns of India who are leading the app development culture. Ahmedabad is one such burgeoning mobile app development location and reports state that out of the 250 (ICT) firms in the city, more than 60 companies are dedicated mobile app developers.

Since its inception, Vserv.mobi’s developer-first approach has translated into creating powerful technology tools based on the monetization challenges of developers in emerging markets like India. Typically, developers enable ads on their apps through the traditional way of integrating an SDK, which is a tedious process that requires significant source code changes and even app layout changes. Also to enable other forms of monetisation such as paid in-app purchases, the developer has to integrate additional SDKs. Vserv.mobi’s flagship AppWrapper technology dramatically simplifies this process down to just One Click. Without any coding efforts, AppWrapper enables both – premium advertising & innovative pricing models – to create a compelling & effortless App monetization approach for developers.

As a result, the company has empowered developers across the world to earn money from apps, across all mobile platforms. Having monetized over 20,000 Apps, developers are earning unprecedented global revenues powered by the Vserv.mobi AppWrapper.

Organized under the aegis of IAMAI, this is the second edition of Appfest after the overwhelming response and success of last year’s event in Hyderabad. The winning team of the Hackathon challenge in 2012 included three Hyderabad-based developers – S Nithin Reddy, Paulomi Roy Choudhary and Ashish Das who received a cash prize of Rs 1 lakh from Vserv.mobi.
