He’s always been a trendsetter of sorts in the fashion world. His relentless journey to relentlessly promote the rich cultural heritage of India is an ongoing endeavour. Noted Mumbai based fashion designer Umair Zafar has forged ahead and is all set to promote another form of Chikankari to his fashion fan followers.

Elaborating on his latest collection, Umair discloses, “Tepchi is one among the 32 types of Chikankari Embroidery. Tepchi work on the entire kurta or just the dupatta is most delicate work as it uses a very thin thread. It is difficult to make out the right and wrong side by just looking at it hence called as magic work. Each stitch is symmetric to the other. Hand embroidered tepchi work gives a decent and stylish look to either the garment.”

Umair Zafar’s new collection is a quixotic and colourful range of long and short kurtis of Lucknowi Tepchi work on Kota fabric. An entire new range of Colors and sizes which is rarely available in the market will be created to suit women of all age groups and sizes.

Bollywood actress Rati Agnihotri, who is being styled by Umair Zafar for her film Tere Aane Se was simply mesmerized with the classic creation that she insisted she wanted to wear this new trend in her film.

SONU NIGAM HAS ONLY WORDS OF PRAISE FOR TALENT-HUNT REALITY SHOWS

Agenda Aaj Tak 2013 got off to a musical start with singer Sonu Nigam keeping audience enthralled for over 40 minutes. The session began with Mr Nigam, product of a television talent hunt show himself, syncing tune with Indian Idol Junior Aakash.

A candid Sonu Nigam had only words of praise for the current singing reality shows. “I don’t agree the shows confuse children. Reality shows, in fact, have pulled out strugglers from a hand-to-mouth existence”, said Mr Nigam. According to Sonu Nigam, the exposure has helped new entrants with a steady income stream.

Mr Nigam rued the typecasting phenomenon in Bollywood. “I was earlier given only sad and slow songs. I had to struggle to be the voice of young actors”, claimed Sonu Nigam. Looking the eternal optimist, Mr Nigam said technology has helped singers with far less talent make it big in the film industry. “The voice should have a nice texture. Notes can always be mixed to create the perfect blend for a song”, revealed Mr Nigam.

The highlight of the session, though was Mr Nigam joining former BJP President Nitin Gadkari to sing ‘Tujhse Naraaz Nahi Zindagi’. A hesitant Mr Gadkari impressed all with his rendition of the unforgettable number from Masoom.

Ghazal legends, Talat Aziz and Pankaj Udhas, present in the audience had only words of praise for Sonu Nigam. “Sonu is blessed with some of the best vocal chords”, said Talat Aziz while Pankaj Udhas said “Sonu reminds me of Kishore Kumar. He is no less than Kishore.”

Akbar’s Choodiwala Look …

Akbar dresses up in disguise, stand ups against child-marriage in Jodha-Akbar…

_DSC2087 (1).JPGFighting for the cause of child-marriage, this week in Jodha-Akbar, viewers will see Akbar in a completely new and different look on the show. Going against all odds to help save a 14 year old girl from being forced into child marriage, Akbar will dress in disguise as a choodiwala in order to get to the root of the matter.

Understanding that a 14 year old girl from his kingdom is about to get married to a man double her age, Akbar along with some help from Jodha takes up the cause of putting an end to the regressive tradition of child marriage in his kingdom. In order to investigate who the man is, Akbar dresses up as a choodiwala so as to not to be recognized by the henchmen of his kingdom. In his attempt to unearth the truth behind this child marriage, Akbar discovers that it is none other than his evil step-brother Adham Khan who has forced the marriage upon the poor girl by offering her greedy father the lure of riches.

Donning a completely different look for the sequence, actor Rajat Tokas as the ‘choodiwala’ is a stark departure from his usual look of Emperor Akbar. Wearing a long robe and sporting a scraggly beard, Rajat looks quite convincing as a Mughal choodiwala.

About this special sequence, Rajat said, “I had no idea what a choodiwala back in the Mughal era looked like until I donned this unique look … I quite enjoyed getting into this character as it was quite different in terms of get-up, body language, demeanor and style of dialogue delivery … It is intriguing that an emperor should go to such great lengths to get to the bottom of a serious issue and take a strong stand against malpractices in his kingdom. The subject of child marriage is a very interesting track on the show and has captivated the audience attention.”

Akbar will be joined by Jodha to fight the cause and eradicate child marriage from his kingdom. Will Akbar’s strong stand against Adham Khan and child marriage irk mother Mahamanga and evoke her to act against him?

2014 Outlook for Investment Banking Services: Thomson Reuters & Freeman Consulting

A much more positive tone is revealed in the fifth Outlook for Investment Banking Services, the annual survey of corporate decision-makers from Thomson Reuters and Freeman Consulting Services. Compared to last year’s survey, which was conducted during a period dominated by headlines about the European debt crisis, the optimistic mood for 2014 shows a change towards a period of expansionary plans, increased volumes – particularly in the financial sector, moving away from the cost-cutting and fee structure focus of 2013.

Full details can be found here in the report, which includes regional and sector breakdowns for responses on a range of investment banking questions. Key highlights follow below.

Spending Cash Reserves: Record cash holdings to support dividend increases in 2014

► In both US and Europe, dividend increases were cited as a top priority for spending cash by 12% more respondents in this year’s survey vs. last year’s

► M&A remains primary use of cash, but cited almost -10% less frequently this year vs. last year. As loan markets reopen, less cash and more debt likely to be used to fund M&A bids

Selecting a Bank: IB clients now looking beyond fees when selecting an advisor

► As in all previous surveys dating back to 2009, respondents value detailed industry knowledge above all else, including existing relationships, fees, and quality of execution

► Percentage of respondents citing competitive fee structures as a key criterion fell from 45% last year to 31% this year – the lowest level in our entire 5 years of surveying. In a major trend reversal, Asian firms are far more fee-sensitive than American or EMEA counterparts

M&A Objectives: Expansionary goals replace cost synergy and valuation-driven ones

► 44% of respondents globally cited product line expansion as a key goal, up from 32% last year, evincing willingness to pursue a high-risk acquisition outside their core markets

► The rush to buy undervalued assets is over – at least in Americas and EMEA. This objective was cited as an M&A driver by just 22% of respondents vs. 31% last year

M&A Deal Volume: Volume forecast to rise +17% in 2014, with growth in every sector

► Respondents’ +17% forecast would push global volume to highest level since 2008

► The Financial sector – 2013’s worst performing sector – forecasts +34% deal volume increase in 2014, as revenue improves and PE searches for deals

► Pressure to match acquisitive competitors seen as top 2014 M&A driver, particularly in Americas, where it was cited by two-thirds of respondents

► Crisis of confidence in Asia? In Asia, management’s confidence in future growth was cited as an M&A catalyst by just 36% of respondents, down from 60% last year. However, in Americas and EMEA, the figure rose to 48% from 21%

Debt Capital Markets: Post-crisis record year seen for bond and loan markets, despite rising rates

► Bond and syndicated loan deal activity each expected to rise +17% in 2014, which would represent an all-time record year for bonds, and the best year for loans since 2007

► As US Fed tightens monetary policy, 61% of Americas respondents see rising interest rates on corporate debt in 2014, vs. 39% in EMEA and 47% in APAC

Equity Capital Markets: Demand for capital to fuel growth creates favorable IPO environment for 2014

► Resurgent IPO activity likely to continue into 2014. 61% of respondents believe companies will use share offerings to fund growth

► European respondents see share offerings used to boost liquidity and deleverage

“Thomson Reuters’ fifth annual survey of corporate decision makers paints a cautiously optimistic picture for deal making in 2014. Credit issuance is expected to grow to record levels despite expected interest rate rises and this in turn will drive M&A funding. The appetite for transformative M&A growth is increasing and expectations are for a superior IPO environment, which suggests improved confidence in macro-economic conditions,” said Leon Saunders Calvert, Thomson Reuters’ Head of Banking & Research. “The defining factor for companies in choosing investment banks remains the ability to demonstrate detailed industry knowledge. This is reflected in the market by the growth, over the past few years, in the size and number of advisory boutiques, who do not have an equivalent balance sheet to deploy on their clients’ behalf, but who define themselves by their sector expertise. This trend is likely to continue as the investment banking and advisory market continues to adapt to the post-crisis environment.”

For further information, please contact us or register here for a webcast presenting the results of the survey on Thursday 5th December at 10am NY, 3pm UK and 4pm Western Europe.

During Q3 2013, CFOs, Treasurers, and other influential managers in Strategic Planning, Corporate Development, and Market Intelligence from over 120 firms globally gave their views on the outlook for investment banking services in 2014. Respondents’ firms range from small, regional businesses to mega-cap global conglomerates

Maya Digital Studios consulted Eye Specialist to ensure that Sholay 3D viewing becomes better

– Use technology to ensure movie doesn’t look blurring even without the 3D glasses

Tuesday, 3rd December, 2013: Maya Digital Studios, the company that pioneered the art and technology of animation and visual effects in India, has successfully converted Indian cinema’s most landmark film from 2D to Stereoscopic 3D. The perfectionist that Maya is when it comes to animation, they consulted several eye specialists along with cinematographers, stereographers, image processing engineers and software programme developers in order to get the right depth map, offset between the two sets of images. This will ensure that the viewing of the final 3D output of Sholay is as good as the legendary movie.

“Sholay is as sacrosanct as the Indian cinema itself; hence it had to be treated accordingly, with great care and utmost respect. In order to make the viewing experience of Sholay in 3D as good as the movie, we also consulted Hollywood DI, a renowned post production studio in the US, which provided us additional technical consultation to assure the finest quality output”, said Mr. Ketan Mehta, MD & Chairman, Maya Digital Studios. He further added, “Some people feel like taking off the glasses while watching a 3D film for bit. But then the film looks hazy without glasses. Taking this insight into consideration, we at Maya adjusted the offset in the images to such an extent that even without wearing the glasses, the film doesn’t come across as hazy or blurred. While the 3D glasses, makes the viewing better, even the lack of the glasses, doesn’t rob the film of its viewing pleasure”.

Osama Bin Laden’s Pakistan Hideout Re-created In Mumbai For ‘Tere Bin Laden 2′.

Director Abhishek Sharma, who made his directorial debut with the political satire ‘Tere Bin Laden’, is back with the sequel of the film Walkwater Media’s ‘Tere Bin Laden 2’ that promises to be bigger and better than the 2010 sleeper hit.Buzz has it that the makers re-created Pakistan in Mumbai for the film!

Abhishek Sharma has re-created Abbottabad, the Pakistani district where Osama bin Laden was found and killed by American Special Forces on May 2, 2011. The set has been erected by production designer Wasiq Khan in Mumbai’s Film City and reportedly, the production team did extensive research to create the Pakistani suburb in Mumbai, getting specific details about the house and the environment.

If that wasn’t all , the makers also used VFX technology to create a Black Hawk, a chopper used by the Navy SEALs during Laden’s assassination,similar to the one used in Kathryn Bigelow’s Oscar-nominated Hollywood thriller ‘Zero Dark Thirty’ . Says Abhishek Sharma , “We only had a rough sketch of the chopper which was leaked to the media by the American officials, as our reference points. The film is a comic satire and does not look to offend”.

Starring Manish Paul, Sikandar Kher and Pradhuman Singh (who will reprise his role as the Osama lookalike), Walkwater Media’s ‘Tere Bin Laden 2’, directed by Abhishek Sharma is scheduled to release next year.
