Get ready for the addiction!

Get ready for the addiction!

Poonam Pandey’s debut film is called Nasha. The former Kingfisher model was signed a while ago by Producers Surender Suneja and Aditya Bhatia for their first film.
“It can be Nasha of any sort. There are people who are high on life today. Some people need some nasha as a crutch to move along in life. The film however talks about the addictions of the youth, one of which is connected to the main storyline of the film. This is a film for the youth, it is a coming of age film. It is a film that every moviegoer will identify with,” says Poonam about her debut film.
For director Amit Saxena who has donned the director’s hat for the second time in a Hindi feature film after a stint in the US of A, the film is much more than a movie. “Nasha is a cult title. Till date no feature film with just the word Nasha has been made in the world,” says Saxena. The first look of the film which was shot recently and a picture leaked out from the said campaign is already creating a buzz.
Producer Aditya Bhatia says that the film is for adults only. “We are making a classy film. Amit has directed Jism earlier with Bipasha Basu and John Abraham and shown the stuff he has been made of. Poonam Pandey’s growing cult status is an important facet that we cannot overlook. Adult movies are doing well in the cinemas today and we are making movies for the big screen and Nasha will show the world that India can also make bold cinema that is still classy,” he says clearly.

The five alphabets comprising the title of the film have been made using the starcast of the movie. Whose limb was used to make what is however left to the imagination of the audiences. Nasha goes on the floors next week in Mumbai and outdoor locales.

India, November 1, 2012 – Xerox (NYSE: XRX) has been placed by Gartner, Inc., in the Leaders Quadrant of the 2012 Magic Quadrant for Managed Print Services (MPS) Worldwide.[1]

Developed by Gartner to evaluate how well technology providers are executing against their current vision, the Magic Quadrant is a proprietary research tool, which provides insight into a market’s direction, maturity and participants.

Remaining the market leader in MPS, Xerox is helping businesses use an MPS strategy to meet the changing needs of their workforce – from supporting mobile workers and bring your own device policies, to securing confidential data, and simplifying complex business processes with new ways to work with both paper and digital information.

New assessment and reporting tools from Xerox’s acquisition of NewField IT are helping capture the growing demand from small and mid-sized businesses (SMBs) – demonstrating the potential for up to 30 percent cost savings, improved energy efficiency, and other productivity benefits powered by MPS. To make it easier for SMBs to benefit from MPS, this year Xerox created a dedicated Channel Partner Operations organization that gives IT resellers more access to customized MPS offerings. In addition, by working with partners like McAfee and Cisco, Xerox is making it easier for enterprises to securely manage print within the existing IT infrastructure and support system.

“MPS has evolved beyond simply managing printed documents, it’s about solving business problems. We believe Xerox has a leadership position because we’ve added expertise in business process and IT outsourcing to improve the way people work,” said Mr. Vishal Awal, Executive Director, Services, Xerox South Asia.

Episodic Synopsis – Day 25

A day of mixed emotions in the Bigg Boss house

The day starts with an electric song – ‘Dhakka laga buka‘ from ‘Yuva’. Delnaaz is seen with Sampat and Karishma in the garden area and she requests Sampat to eat something for breakfast. Sampat snaps back saying that she doesn’t mind eating or cooking for others but she will not use any of the luxury budget items. Delnaaz walks into the house and addresses the rest of the housemates with much displeasure and irritation.

Delnaaz is angry with Sampat for not letting go the results of task and blaming the girls in the house who have always looked up to her and served her with love and respect. Delnaaz then approaches Sapna and talks to her about how the whole dynamics of the house has been changing due to some people’s arrogant/stubborn attitude (referring to Sampat post the task results). Sapna and Delnaaz make things clear between them. After a while all the ladies in the house are seen sitting in their room. Sapna walks in and makes truce with all the others. One by one all of them clear their differences that were mainly caused by the Rajneeti task in the past few days. All the ladies hug & apologize to each other and go out in one group to convince Sampat to let go and start eating properly.

Sampat doesn’t reciprocate too well initially, leaving Aashka and a few others miffed after their humble attempt to make peace with everyone. After a lot of convincing by Sidhu and the others, Sampat finally agrees to cheer up and join the rest for lunch. After a while, Bigg Boss assembles all the housemates in the living room and announces that Sidhu gets a chance to earn some luxury points after losing the Rajneeti task as he was Niketan’s assistant. The Panic room gets introduced to Sidhu and he is supposed to pick up as many coins as possible in order to gain a few luxury points that his team would benefit from. The panic room has walls that would come crashing into him while he is collecting the coins. Sidhu’s hands were also tied with each other to make the task more challenging. Sidhu being a true sport managed to collect quite a few coins in the limited amount of time and the rather freaky circumstances. The housemates watch Sidhu while he is in the panic room. The housemates act like they haven’t seen anything and tease Sidhu on his hilarious reactions after he comes out. Then, the housemates congratulate him and appreciate his courage and intention of doing the task so well in order to protect his teammates’ interests.

Bigg Boss awards Sidhu a few additional luxury points for completing the given task rather successfully. Delnaaz is then seen chatting with Niketan and clarifying as to why he has been rubbing a cold shoulder towards her. Niketan denies it and patches up with Delnaaz happily. After a long eventful day, the lights then go off and the housemates go to sleep.

Sunny Leone is the Most Dangerous Celebrity in Indian Cyberspace- McAfee Research

Katrina Kaif and Kareena Kapoor take up No. 2 and No. 3 positions respectively in ‘India’s Most Dangerous celebrity’ research

India, November 1, 2012 – Sunny Leone emerged as the most dangerous celebrity in the Indian cyber space this year , followed by Katrina Kaif; according to world’s largest dedicated security technology company McAfee . For the sixth year in a row, McAfee researched popular culture’s most famous people to reveal riskiest celebrity sportsmen, actors and politicians across the web to reveal the 2012 rendition of ‘Most Dangerous Celebrity’ research. In the India ranking this year, Sunny Leone displaced Katrina Kaif, who owned this title in the 2011 edition of this annual research.

Commenting on the findings of the report, Lubna Markar, Sr. Marketing Manager India & South Asia, McAfee, said, “Cyber criminals continue to leverage top celebrities to lure people to websites with malicious software. This year too, we saw cyber crooks leveraging Bollywood stars whereby the maximum number of malicious software laden sites pertained to Sunny Leone. This testifies her top position as the most dangerous celebrity in Indian cyberspace in 2012.”

Cyber criminals follow the latest trends, often using the names of popular celebrities to lure people to malicious sites designed to steal passwords and personal information. Fans looking for results on search engines using strings such as ‘name of celebrity’ combined with words like ‘free downloads’, ‘hot pictures’, ‘screen savers’, and ‘videos’ are at risk of running themselves into such sites. This year, searching for a celebrity name with “sex videos” and “free downloads” as part of the search term resulted in the highest number of risky sites.

The study for ‘Most Dangerous Celebrity’ used the McAfee® SiteAdvisor® site rating which indicates the sites that are risky to search for celebrity names on the web and calculate an overall risk percentage. The top 10 celebrities in India from this year’s study with the highest risk percentages are:

Evelyn Sharma to Dhak Dhak her way into Bollywood!

Bollywood newbie and fashionista Evelyn Sharma is gearing up for her new movie Nautanki Saala to rock Bollywood. And from what we hear, it has some fantabulous songs.

But to give her that special pep and charm, is none other than ex-superstar Madhuri Dixit’s nineties chartbuster Dhak Dhak Karne Laga from Beta. One can easily remember those days when the junta went mad over Madhuri’s bust-thrusts in the song.

Now the suave Rohan Sippy is attempting to recreate the Dhak Dhak magic as he directs Nautanki Saala; pegged as a quirky romance, co-produced by Ramesh Sippy and Bhushan Kumar.

The song featuring the entire cast of the film will have the half-German half-Indian Evelyn dressed in an ultra-glam sari.

She will be seen gyrating hips with Ayushmann Khurrana and Kunaal Roy Kapur to the beats of composer Mickey in the film, which also has a cameo by none other than Abhishek Bachchan.

When we inquired how Evelyn plans to match up to the charisma of Madhuri Dixit, her publicist Dale Bhagwagar cheekily replied, “Just by being herself” Now, that’s a smart-alec remark indeed! But let’s wait and watch if this Dhak Dhak can get our heartbeats racing all over again!

In pursuance of the said announcement, a ceremony was organised to award medals to the Indian Olympic winners. The ceremony witnessed the awarding of a big 3 kg medal of pure gold to the sportsmen who won silver medal in London Olympics 2012, namely, Shri Vijay Kumar (Shooting) and Mr. Sushil Kumar (Wrestling), whereas 2 Kg medals of pure gold were awarded to the Indian sportspersons – Shri Gagan Narang (Shooting), Ms. Saina Nehwal (Badminton), Ms. Mary Kom (Boxing) and Shri Yogeshwar Dutt (Wrestling) for winning bronze medal in the London Olympics 2012. The awards were presented to the sportspersons by Shri Akhilesh Yadav, Hon’ble Chief Minister, Uttar Pradesh, amongst the presence of many dignitaries from across all walks of life.

A cultural programme was also held as a part of the ceremony which included some memorable performances by Shri Sonu Niigaam and Shri Shiamak Davar’s troupe.

Speaking on the occasion, Hon’ble Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh, Shri Akhilesh Singh Yadav, said, “I would like to congratulate the sportspersons who have brought laurels to our nation on an international level. I would, first of all, like to thank Saharasri Ji for honoring these talented sportspersons by inviting them to Lucknow and adorning them with huge medals of Gold. I am feeling as happy as I used to feel while watching them on Television.”

Speaking on the occasion, ‘Saharasri’ Subrata Roy Sahara, Managing Worker & Chairman, Sahara India Pariwar, said, “I would, first of all, like to welcome all the 6 great sons and daughters of our great nation, from the depth of my heart. All these talented children of our nation have made us immensely proud. I have known them since long. They started their career in sports on their own and the only ones who stood by them then, were their family members. I felt that something needs to be done in this regard. So, Sahara has come-up with a new planning so as to increase the medal count in the next Olympics. As per this plan, we will be setting up a sports centre of international level at Aamby Valley City where many budding sportspersons will be given world class training. I would also request our friends from media to give more appreciation to these heroes and be even more instrumental in helping them to enhance their performance. I would also like to thank Hon’ble Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh, Shri Akhilesh Singh Yadav for taking out time from his busy schedule and gracing this occasion.”

Shri Sushil Kumar said that earlier also he has received continuous support, appreciation and encouragement from Saharasri Ji. In the past, we have seen that no other organization has supported sports as Sahara has done. This time also, I am extremely overwhelmed by his gracious blessings. This fact was echoed all the other sportspersons present during the ceremony.

With the objective of developing sports in India and securing better prospects for India in terms of medals tally in the London Olympics, Sahara India Pariwar, adopted Indian Boxing, Wrestling, Archery, Shooting, Track & Field and Tennis, covering support of a total of 101 sportsmen in these 6 games who were potential medal winners.
