It’s business on the go for Bipasha Basu

Bipasha Basu who has been shooting at Madh Island for Vikram Bhatt’s Creature 3D has found a constructive way of spending her time traveling to and fro her destination.

The actress uses the travel time to return all her important calls and coordinate professional commitments, given that the director-producer prefers to not have his talent use their phones on the sets.

In fact Bipasha even conducts her meetings while traveling to Madh, so as to not waste time.

Says a source, “Bipasha Basu being the professional that she is, ensures that no time is lost even if that includes conducting meetings in her car – At the same time she does respect Vikram’s request of avoiding phone conversations and coordination on the sets of Creature”.

Ghodbunder Road gets road barricades from Radhe Maa Trust

Mumbai.Ghodbunder road does not have dividers or barricades. In spite of complaints by Sanjeev Gupta, the trustee of Radhe Maa trust, there was no action by the authorities. This prompted the trust to erect barricades and get the roads marked with own money.

There is a sharp bend approximately 500 meters after China creek toll post towards Thane and there are a lot of accidents reported due to it. Sanjeev Gupta, who used to often pass this road, reported the matter to authorities. “I complained it to the local authorities without results. So we decided to install the barricades in the 100 meter streach at a cost of nearly Rs. 3 Lakh,” said Sanjeev Gupta.

People only complains about road is bad, Gutter is not clean but no one doing anything but Sanjeev Gupta done great job for people.

Full moon, amazing artists and a stunning setting… a musical Sharad Poornima with Jodhpur RIFF

Experience the potpourri of music at the Jodhpur RIFF from Oct 17-21, 2013

New Delhi-26th August: Jodhpur RIFF, included amongst the leading international music festivals in the world, is back again this year from 17-21st October at the majestic Mehrangarh Fort and in the ‘blue city’ – Jodhpur, much to the delight of music lovers. This 5-day festival, now in its 7th year, continues to bring together interlinked and distinct musical strands to create a full programme around the exceptional variety of Rajasthani traditional and global roots music.

This genre-independent festival includes unique events from dawn to dusk, from devotional concerts to hip club nights and exciting collaborations between Rajasthani and Nordic, British, West Asian and Australian artists… serene folk and classical mornings, interactive daytime immersive sessions, unusual dances and beautiful evenings in the famous ‘Desert Lounge’… all under the full moon sky.

Announcing the 2013 edition of the Jodhpur RIFF, HH Maharaja Gaj Singh II of Jodhpur-Marwar and Patron of the Festival said, “Jodhpur RIFF is emerging as a fine example of an excellent confluence of music, cultures and heritage. This amalgamation reveals the richness of our musical traditions on a global platform. The beauty of Jodhpur RIFF lies in the fact that while it is musically extravagant, it maintains its rustic simplicity and commitment to its vision and ethos.”

Reflecting on the festival’s growth, Festival Director Mr. Divya Bhatia adds, “We’ve built confidence in Jodhpur RIFF amongst artists and audiences alike – here and abroad. And we aim to continue to be relevant to both. As we evolve, we will see more styles of traditional and modern performances at the festival… those that are inextricably intertwined with music.”

Jodhpur RIFF is a partnership project involving two of India’s leading heritage trusts Mehrangarh Museum Trust (MMT) and Jaipur Virasat Foundation (JVF).

Some of the highlights for this year are –

ñ Daud Khan Sadozai, master and living legend of the Robab, an Afghani lute-like instrument, gives a virtuoso performance. Daud Khan then collaborates with the young classical Sarangi maestro Dilshad Khan and oud master Joseph Tawadros.

ñ Gypsy Allstars: The ‘Gypsy Allstars” lead by Cedric Leonardi, Mario Reyes and Antonio Carmona presenting a special performance at RIFF this year – come to India for the first time on a project called “Return to Rajasthan”. Their repertoire will include collaborations with Rajasthani artists on new pieces, as well as new arrangements of some iconic and joyful familiar songs – Volare, Bomboleo, Un Amour and so many more..

ñ The Manganiyar of Marwar: Jodhpur RIFF presents glimpses of the immense repertoire and varied skills of this prolific musician community throughout the festival… including a dawn concert featuring the vocal beauty of the brothers Barkat and Jalal khan Manganiyar singing bhajans to the folk deity Bananath; an interactive session with stalwarts of the community; Manganiyar musicians at the Desert Lounge; and the premiere of a new performance created by them.

ñ Desert Lounge: What started as an experiment has become something quite special at Mehrangarh Fort. Jodhpur RIFF presented a Sharad Poornima, all-acoustic Rajasthani folk concert in the Rao Jodha Desert and Rock Park. Pradeep Krishen (filmmaker, environmentalist and the curator/ designer of the park) was inspired by the event and since then, has arranged all-acoustic Manganiyar artists’ concerts on every full moon night between March-September this year. Jodhpur RIFF 2013 will some of these and many more artists at its second Sharad Poornima midnight concert on the 18th of October this year.

ñ Introducing the folk accordion – with Linda Gytri (Norway) and SPIRO (England): Jodhpur RIFF presents two groups from Europe, both featuring the accordion, the hallmark of much of the folk music of that continent, but set to very different music. One, lilting and melodic and the other, mesmeric and impassioned.

ñ Jodhpur RIFF embarks on a new exploration of our relationships to traditional music by looking at “Jahaji Music” and “Bidesia in Bambai” – two documentary films by Surabhi Sharma exploring the movement of Bhojpuri music and a special performance on the Legacy of Bhikari Thakur by Kalpana Patowary.

ñ Maru Tarang – collaboration between Jeff Lang, folk/jazz singer, guitarist and songwriter and Asin Langa on Sindhi Sarangi, accompanied by Bobby Singh on tabla and Bhungar Manganiyar on khartal.

The festival is open to the public; donor passes will be available online from August 26, 2013 at

Chandni aka Amita who is currently in her last year of graduation is doing her Bachelor’s in Mass Media. Since her board exams have commenced, she has been trying her level best to manage her shoots and studies. At a tender age she is giving her work and studies equal amount of attention.

When we tried to contact Chandni she said, “Yes, I have my board exams going on and I am trying hard to manage my work and studies. I go to college in the morning give my exam and run for my shoot just after that. I realized I won’t have time to study like this so I have made pointers and stuck them in my makeup room so that whenever I get a break I make the most of it. Thankfully I have got an immensely supportive and understanding crew which is helping me in every way to reduce my stress. They have also adjusted my shoot timings accordingly so that I can focus on my studies well. It is really generous and humble gesture from their side. That’s the reason I am glad to be associated with such an amazing production house, channel and co-stars who are encouraging me at every step”.
