“Comparisons with Aishwarya have been flattering!” says Paridhi Sharma

Paridhi Sharma, who is currently seen as Jodha in the show ‘Jodha Akbar’, recently spoke to us about the nuances of playing a historical character and how the comparisons with Aishwarya Rai Bachchan have only encouraged her.

Comparisons with Aishwarya feel nice
Ever since I started playing Jodha, I have been getting a lot of compliments. I’m really happy and I feel blessed that people are appreciating me. I knew that people would compare me with Aishwarya (who played Jodhaa in the movie Jodhaa Akbar). I mean, from the beginning of my career, I am being compared to an iconic personality like Aishwarya.

I’ve even been called Madhubala
People have come and told me, ‘You look better than Aishwarya’. People have even compared me to Madhubala. It feels great that my hard work has paid off.

Lot of hard work to do a historical show
The sets of the show are in Karjat, near Mumbai, so we have to stay there. Apart from that, I have to wear this heavy jewellery and attire which is quite a task. You have to learn so much. I trained in martial arts, sword fighting and horse-riding. It’s quite different from what daily soap actors do. But at the end of the day, the show is giving you so much, so you have to make that sacrifice. In fact, it’s been really long since I have been to my hometown Indore to meet my family. But whenever my parents get time, they come to visit the set.

I’ve had my share of struggles
Since childhood, I’ve had a passion towards art – painting and dance. After completing my MBA from Pune, I realized that marketing was not my cup of tea. When people would ask me ‘Why marketing’, the answers I would give were not from my heart. Mujhe bahut fake interviews dene pad rahe thay. I found acting to be the best medium to portray myself. I went to Mumbai, started struggling, and meanwhile, also did a lot of theatre.

Would love to do a dance reality show
I have had formal training in Kathak. In Kathak, you have to portray lots of expressions and emotions. It has helped me in acting. If given a chance, I would love to do a dance reality show.

Family is supportive
My parents were quite supportive when I decided to enter TV. Even my husband is quite supportive

Sparking Change

FLASHPOINT Human Rights Film Festival, only film festival in India focussing solely on human rights, returns to the city
On December 10th, which is the International Human Rights Day, noted filmmaker and activist Mr.Mahesh Bhatt, being one of the very few fortunate Indians who has met Nelson Mandela, remembered what the late leader had told him, “It would be preposterous for me to give any advise to India. Just live the words of Gandhi”

Mr.Bhatt who announced the 3rd FLASHPOINT Human Rights Film Festival to be held in the city from Dec 12th – 14th, 2013 at Alliance Française de Bombay said, “When empathy erodes from our society evil walks tall. I am certain that these deeply felt films made by brave film makers, will jolt us all and make us take note of the suffering we unleash on our fellow human beings. Flashpoint Human Rights Film Festival for me is like a solitary lamp in this dark night. It will ignite hope in the hopeless”.

Mr.Bhatt, who is the Festival Patron of FLASHPOINT Human Rights Film Festival, and supporter since its inception in 2010, said “You cannot have peace without justice. I support Flashpoint Human Rights Film Festival because it fights for human dignity.”

In the third edition, the festival brings together a collection of volatile and incisive 13 Indian and international films on human rights films.

Elaborating on the programme, festival director Sridhar Rangayan said, “This year’s films deal with a wide gamut of issues – from discrimination against women, to war crimes, to forced disappearances. Highlight of this year’s festival are several films that highlight cyber activism by women and youth on social media networks, using mobile phones, cameras and laptops, to create revolution. This is the spirit which our festival acknowledges and salutes. We want people to become ‘flashpointers’ of change. Every action counts to create a movement”.

The festival which is a free event open to public at large, is an initiative by Solaris Pictures, who also organize the iconic KASHISH Mumbai International Queer Film Festival.

Vinta Nanda, Managing Director, of ACEE – The Third Eye, who have come on board this year as co-organizer said, “In times such as these ones, when technology has unleashed an invasion of the democracy of voice, much before a state could have inculcated a tolerance for diversity; a patience for multiplicity of languages; a resilience for a medley of cultures; an endurance for contradictions in the politics of truth and lies; and a stamina among its people for the variance in the comprehension of morality, it is festivals of films on human rights, like FLASHPOINT that bring meaning to the discourse and quicker justice to the marginalized and disenfranchised by moving empowered societies towards action”

The film festival is supported by Movies That Matter in Netherlands, an arm of Amnesty International.

The films set in India that highlight local human rights issues are ‘Shahid’ by Hansal Mehta about the lifestory of the brave lawyer who was murdered; ‘Inshallah, Kashmir’ by Ashvin Kumar about forced disappearances in Kashmir; ‘Salma’ by Kim Longinotto about a woman who was kept locked up for 13 years by her family, and ‘Bottle Masala in Moile’ by Vaidehi Chitre about displacement of the East Indian community in Mumbai.

Frenzy Friday!

All this week Bullion danced to the tunes of Labour report from US.

Gold is down about 28% this year, heading for the first annual loss in 13 years, as solid U.S. economic data has underlined expectations that the Fed will begin curbing stimulus.

The bond-buying stimulus has strongly supported gold prices as it has served to keep interest rates ultra low, an ideal environment for non-yield bearing assets. It so happened that a 2% increase in Gold prices was the biggest one day gain in over a month’s time. This can be attributed to short covering and new fund buying that deal that the FED plan to exit asset purchase scheme will still take time.

Gold prices fell on Thursday but remained range bound after solid U.S. economic growth and jobless claims data; firmed up talk that Federal Reserve will begin scaling back stimulus programs within the coming months. Even though European Central Bank and Bank of England have continued to hold off from any new policy action, markets are fixated on U.S. economic snapshots and any data that gives an idea when the Federal Reserve might start curbing its bond-buying programme.

Gold prices rode a rollercoaster Friday, regaining some ground after Thursday’s sharp losses right ahead the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics published strong job numbers, to fall sharply after the announcement.

The game was all being played by forecasts.

On Friday, as the US Labour report was released, gold was seen in a different mood.
Gold climbed in volatile trade on Friday, bouncing from session lows reached after U.S. jobs data beat forecasts, as traders who had bet on even larger losses rushed to cover their positions.

The actual figure was higher than forecast at 203,000, compared to consensus forecasts of 185,000. The rate of US unemployment also fell to a five-year low of 7%, but economists suggested the figures were heavily skewed by the US government shutdown in October. Thousands of government employees who were temporarily laid off returned to work last month. Unemployment rate in the US fell to 7.0% from 7.3% in October. Economists predicted a smaller decline to 7.2%.

Meanwhile, the Commerce Department said personal income edged down by 0.1% in October after increasing by 0.5% in September. Economist did not expect the drop, as they had expected income to increase by 0.3%. The market fell immediately after the figures showed that U.S. employers had hired more workers than expected in November and the unemployment rate had dropped to a five-year low of 7 percent, which strengthened the case for the Federal Reserve to start reducing bond purchases as soon as this month.

Gold prices have now erased some of their losses for the week but were still down 1.2 percent after having dropped sharply on Thursday as data showed the U.S. economy grew faster than estimated in the third quarter.

The majority looks through the noise towards the end goal, i.e. tapering and a slow normalisation of US monetary policy which is coming closer by the day. As a result, at this stage it appears as if rallies will simply be sold into, whether the data beats expectations or not. Gold ETFs seems to liquidate on every opportunity, with the latest data showing ETF holdings are down another 113Koz. Silver should follow gold and as a result remains a sell into rallies.

The Federal Reserve, which holds its next meeting on December 17-18, has said the timing of its tapering depends on the health of the labour and housing

Dhoom is a journey that started in 2003. A light footed caper that became a runaway hit. It is
said that sequels are arguably the legitimate offspring of successful films.
However, we at Yash Raj Films always felt that the reason to make the film should be its
content and not just the tag of Dhoom. With this intent we brought Dhoom:2 to you in 2006.
This time, the cops and robbers set up hid a love story within its folds. It had a dream run at
the box office and it created a potential mine field of expectations for us. Inadvertently we had
become our own biggest competitors. So here we are ready with Dhoom:3. Saying that
expectations are sky high would seem like the understatement of the decade. So all we’d like
to say is that we want to share this film with you and in all humility, we hope that it is an
experience that pleases, surprises and awes its audience. In the cacophony of today’s world,
we’d like to transport you to a time when an audience discovered a film in the theatre. A time
to forget your world and get involved with the world of…
SAHIR
A man so driven that he exudes an energy that’s at once
alluring and dangerous, fiery, fierce and unforgiving.
Sahir The Clown Thief is a force that destroys whatever
opposes him.
JAI DIXIT
The canny cop from Mumbai. Determined, analytical, persevering. Jai can go to any lengths
to get his adversary and sometimes you have to think like the enemy to trap the enemy.
ALI AKBAR
The entertainer. The reluctant cop who’s at home anywhere – from Nagpada to Niagra Falls,
Ali is always at ease, ready to fall in love with anything that resembles the female form and
unswerving in his search to become a “familywala.”
AALIYA
A fresh faced unassuming girl who transforms once she’s on stage. She is a fearless soul who
defies gravity in her act in the circus. She is equally fearless in matters of the heart

Power Comes in the Salty Water!

Kavita Raha, founder of Pink Platform conducted a panel discussion on ‘Domestic abuse & battered women’ pompously on board of Voyager – Seven Seas with the woman achievers!

Pink Platform hosted a panel discussion on “Domestic abuse & battered women: Responsibility & obligations of the privileged class” on board of Voyager- Seven seas in the open Arabian Sea.

A human rights specialist, doctors and a lawyer were in conversation with Kavita Raha, Founder & CEO; Pink Platform highlighting some of the human rights issues faced by women in our country along with pondering over our responsibilities towards women who are less fortunate than us.

The crème de la crème crowd comprising of elite class of women coming from different backgrounds were Bhagyashree, Archana Kochhar, Amy Billimoria, Dr. Sunita Banerjee, Bina Aziz, Nazneen, Priya Thakur & others

Couturier Amy Billimoria, from her exclusive collection, put up a Saree for auction. A contemporary Saree influenced by the various aspects of a modern woman.

Pink Platform, an online community…the website designed to gather women from different walks of life onto a single forum where they can express themselves freely, discuss issues that matter and share their experiences, in turn helping enrich the lives of other women.

Explaining the mantra of Pink Platform, founder Kavita Raha mentions, “Our mantra is ‘Let start small, but start’… We are forming a ‘circle of trust’, so for those who are interested in contributing and starting small giving projects can register at the Pink Platform online portal. The Pink Platform network covers a vast array of topics that would be relevant for women all over the world, in different age groups, and includes subjects such as parenting, healthcare, and domestic issues to beauty, entertainment, personal finance, food and travel, to name just a few.”

The panel discussion revolved around topics of sexual & domestic abuse where everybody openly discussed the sensitive issues.

Sexual abuse still remains largely hidden. The recent outrage over the allegations of abuse of a Tehelka staffer by the editor has led to fresh discussions about sexual harassment in the work place. Quite often, women choose to shrug it off fearing problems at work, because they lack the support that they will need to pursue criminal charges considering that the perpetrator is often in a position of power, and above all because they want to avoid further harassment due to a long drawn police investigation and trial process. This is true in most cases of abuse, and crimes are rarely reported unless the injuries are so critical that they person needs medical care, in which case doctors are obliged to inform the police.

Domestic violence too remains largely hidden. While it can occur across classes, the victim often feels economically dependent on the perpetrator, unwilling to risk the hardship she and the children might encounter if they complain. Of course, there are the more complicated areas of marital rape.

Talking about how Pink Platform came into being, Kavita Raha explains, “Women are constantly balancing their time and priorities between home, children, spouse/ partner, and the workplace with each demanding their share of importance and attention. To add to it all, this constant act of juggling responsibilities is seen as being merely supportive in nature and often doesn’t receive adequate recognition. Between all of this, they get very little time or opportunity to cater to their own needs or discuss their problems and issues. And this is where pink Platform steps in.”

Each Slice film has been notable for the focus on aesthetic sensibilities and consistent storylines, and with every campaign our bond has only grown stronger.

Says Frank Flick, the Director of Photography for the TVC ,
“I have shot commercials with Katrina for nearly two years now and we share a great working rapport. I am amused at the concocted report that she had a problem working with me. We shot with her for five days and nearly ten hours a day at the Slice shoot this week.”

The actor of Commando and Force fame, Vidyut Jamwal has been the talk of the town recently.

Everyone in the industry has been raving about his friendly performance in Tigmanshu Dhulia’s Bullett Raja.

Even though he had little screen time, he managed to grab the audiences’ attention and become the takeaway from the film.

He left people zapped with his action scenes in Force and Commando without using body doubles and cable wires.

There is no one who can even come close to the action he does and so a lot of action filmmakers have him on top of their minds for their films. The directors are very keen on having a fresh and young actor doing their action based films.

Vidyut, who has already carved a niche in the industry, is being discussed in casting circles for action related roles as he is the only actor of this generation to do breath taking action sequences with such ease.

Also, Vidyut has a lot of girl fan following for his looks and guys who want to be like him, which makes him a good bet in the industry.

Jackpot unravels unknown facets of actors

Jackpot the Full Jhol might be a film which sees stylish maker Kaizad Gustad brings to the fore, sizzling Sunny in a sunny avatar, but the film also has some unravelled some unusual facets of its people.

The first is Naseeruddin Shah’s hidden talent of being an amazing karaoke singer, Sunny Leone being a total foodie (she gorges on gulab jamuns) and the fact that Sachiin Joshi has an amazing musical side to him. In fact, the song abhi Jo Badal was conceived by Sachiin with Sharib-Toshi taking forward his thoughts. Says Kaizad Gustad, “Sachiin has an amazing musical side to him. And that has contributed immensely to the success of the music of Jackpot.”

Considering that Sachiin Joshi had earlier directed the XXX commercial starring Sunny Leone, it looks like we will see this young turk with a musical acumen will be donning the director’s cap soon as well.
