Wrestler Sangram Singh and Actress Payal Rohatgi Visited Shirdi

To enter the sanctum of Shirdi SaiBaba Mandir, to offer the customary visit, the ornamental spread, is to touch the core of the Pujari, the one for who the heart is The True God. You enter a sacred space where all distinctions dissolve, where the “power of now”, as Eckhart Tolle puts it, seems to draw into its vortex all other outer preoccupations of the mind. Pilgrims throng for a brief “Darshan” at Samadhi Mandir, the shrine of Sai Baba where His mortal remains were interred. Bollywood celebrities visit spiritual places many a time to seek the Divine Blessings for their Success and their Life. The beautiful Actress Payal Rohatgi and Bigg Boss 7 Finalist, Wrestler Sangram Singh recently visited Shirdi SaiBaba Mandir to offer prayers.

Sangram Singh who visited the holy place Shirdi for the first time said, “I was visiting these Holy places for the first time. Payal is a Ardent follower of Sai Baba ji and she has been there before too. But it was my first time. I felt great and blessed with my visit there.. The crowd of Common man Loved Me. And the Goodwill Post #Bigg Boss has Humbled Me. I am grateful to God for Always guiding me in my Life.”

He also shared his Bigg Boss experience, he said “I am now Getting out of the Reality show of whose part I was for a Total 105 days without a Single Day Break , Cut-off from the World completely. It will always be a important part of my Life. The experience was very humbling and has taught me how to be more Observant and maybe more Tolerant towards various People/Situations in our Normal Life too. Respect cannot be Demanded, Love cannot be forced.”

John Abraham To Produce And Star In Biopic On ‘The Great Gama’

Known to be a game-changer when it comes to pushing the envelope with films that are unique and out –of –the box, actor-producer John Abraham, who is known for making content-rich, critically acclaimed films, is now gearing up to produce a biopic on the Indian wrestler ‘The Great Gama’, in which he will play the titular role.

Born in 1880 in Punjab, Gama, who remained undefeated his entire career spanning more than 50 years, was awarded the Indian version of the World Heavyweight Championship on 15 October 1910.

Produced by JA Entertainment and Rising Sun Films, the biopic on Gama will be directed by Parmeet Sethi. Sources close to the actor reveal that the script of the film has been finalized and the pre-production of the film has already started 3 months ago. Considering that John will be playing one of the world’s greatest wrestler, it is understandable that the famous Abraham physique will be on display for his fans in the film.

Talking about the film says Parmeet Sethi, “Gama is the only wrestler to have the distinction of being undeafted in his career span of 50 years and his story is yet not told to the world….We felt this made an interesting subject that should be highlighted and needed to be penned down.Since nothing so far has been made in his honor.”

“When I thought about the film the only actor who came to mind was John.While he has a great physique to go with the subject,there is something about him that is extremely honest and positive.It will be exciting for both him and me to work on this together since its a different character and something he hasn’t done so far in his career.” adds Parmeet all praise for John Abraham.

Kailash Kher visited the Mahakaleshwar Jyotirlinga in Ujjain

Popular singer Kailash Kher who worships Lord Shiva and considers himself the greatest devotee of Lord Shiva, and even his name, Kailash, is also associated with the God; few days ago visited the Mahakaleshwar Jyotirlinga in Ujjain. The temple is considered as most sacred place for devotees as Lord Shiva’s twelve Jyotirlinga is supposed to be in the temple.

Kailash Kher firmly believes that whatever happens in his life are the blessings of Shiva. So when the singer was in the ancient city of Ujjain for a concert he visited the shrine in the next morning itself after the show. Kailash Kher visited the temple earlier in the morning so that he could see the whole ‘shingar’ of Lord Shiva before the most sacred ‘Bhasma Aarti.’ Kailash Kher did the puja and archana with full devotion.

Though Kailash Kher is theist himself but he doesn’t like to visit temples as he believes God is everywhere. But this time Kailash Kher was visiting Ujjain after 10 years so he couldn’t control his love for Lord Shiva and visited shrine. After experiencing the whole prayer he said, ‘while the rituals were being performed during the prayer, I felt some sort of connection with my soul and my Shiva. This is one of a kind experience for me. If I again get a chance to come here in Ujjain I will definitely visit the Mahakaleshwar Jyotirlinga again.’

MIDITECH LAUNCHES ENVIRONMENTAL SERIES – ‘LAKSHAYA: EK LIVING PLANET’

New Delhi, February 7, 2014- Miditech, a leading production house, recently launched a 26 part environment series ‘Lakshaya: EK Living Planet’, currently on-air on Doordarshan every Sunday 9.30pm. Aimed at creating an environment movement in the country that will enable awareness and thus start a dialogue of present and future environment issues, Lakshaya: EK Living Planet addresses immediate environment issues in a hard hitting, investigative reportage format. Hosted by Niret Alva, a well known television personality and Chairman of Miditech, the show focuses on communicating environmental issues in a way that is easy to understand, relatable and is solution based through its passionate and fearless eco-warriors reporters who are spanned across India.

Each week, Lakshaya: Ek Living Planet critically looks at the state of India’s environment – from the effects of urban pollution to the drinking water crisis. With reports from every corner of the country, the show turns the spotlight on often neglected subjects like green technology, the efforts of passionate citizens to protect the environment and rare successful ecological initiatives never seem on television before.

According to Niret Alva, Co- Founder Miditech, Miditech and Executive Producer and Host of Lakshya, “In today’s era there is a big gap in communication when it comes to environmental issues. While there are cutting edge public service adverts and one off documentaries, there isn’t really an incisive television series that focuses on the need to better understand our fragile eco system. Lakshaya: Ek living planet fills that gap by focusing on the immediate environment issues in an investigative reportage form without mincing any words or being safe. Also the unique thing about the show is that it works with passionate young filmmakers from around the country on the editorial approach. They send in story ideas, they shoot, send in the rough cut and we work together till the story truly brings out what we are trying to say.”

Each episode has 5 different segments; Red Alert (Stories based on the socio-environment issues), Wild India (Stories based on man-animal conflict and conservation), Green tech (Technologies at the forefront of environment revolution), Initiative (Environmental success stories), Citizen (Raw, unedited stories from citizens of India on environment issues in their backyard).

Each episode produced for Doordarshan by Miditech, follows the legendary Living on the Edge, also a Miditech production and India’s first environment series which started broadcast in 1994 and ran successfully for almost a decade. The Chairman of Prasar Bharati, Jawahar Sircar and the Director General Doordarshan, Tripurari Sharan were instrumental in bringing back the multi award winning Living on the Edge in its current avatar as Lakshya Ek Living planet. Although it’s done in Hindi, the accents and nuances capture the diverse culture of India from the north east to the south.

Sumeet Raghavan & Rajeev Thakur pair up to spoof Bollywood

Parodying the films nominated at the Lux Cozi Zee Cine Awards 2014,
the two funny men have some hilarious gags up their sleeve in ‘Fully Filmy’…

Known for their amazing comic timing and their tongue-in-cheek brand of humor, actors Sumeet Raghavan and Rajeev Thakur have won many accolades and applause for their comic acts. From playing funny characters in fiction shows to hosting reality shows or taking part in various laughter shows, the two have had the audiences in splits with their wisecracks, mimicry and spoofs. Paired together earlier, the two are known to complement each other’s styles. This time, the lethal combination is back together playing Dhritarashtra and Sanjay from the epic Mahabharat, spoofing Bollywood films nominated at the Lux Cozi Zee Cine Awards 2014 .

Joined by a slew of mimicry artistes and look alikes of various actors, Sumeet and Rajeev will be seen in a 1 hour special Bollywood spoof on the movies Krrish 3, Dhoom 3, Bhaag Milkha Bhaag and Chennai Express. Putting together a hilarious act, all the actors were so well rooted in their character and resembled the original stars that they were mistaken for the actual Bollywood actors by many amongst the audience present at the studio.

Playing the role of Aamir Khan from Dhoom 3, and carrying off the hat-look quite well, Howard fit the bill as an exact replica of Aamir Khan. Priya Raina – playing the character of Deepika Padukone from Chennai Express was quite a vision as the bespectacled, nerdy, saree-clad southie siren. While she was rehearsing the famous scene of a dream sequence where Deepika ends kicking Shahrukh Khan in her sleep, Priya Raina ended up kicking the Production controller by mistake.

Do not miss the ‘Fully Filmy’ episode of Zee Cine Awards on Saturday, 1st February at 7 PM, Only on Zee TV!
