A unique tournament turns Jewellers into competitive cricketers!

4thJanuary, 2014: Cricket is not just a game in India but a lot more. With an intention to seek values of sportsmanship, pursuit of excellence, fellowship, competitive spirit, honesty and fairness, NYUZMAKERS CRICKET CHALLENGE with its unusual set of rules enters its 6th year. This tournament is an underarm Cricket Tournament for Jewellery Retailers of Mumbai to meet, play and interact. Beginning from 6th January 2014 to 10th January 2014, it’s an innovative Box-Cricket Tournament which is a fun format with an unusual set of rules that makes it far more interesting than the regular bat and ball game. The event is presented by Femina and co-sponsored by Dharmanandan Diamonds. The Retail Jeweller is the Trade Media Partner along with DNA as Print Partner, BRIGHT as Outdoors Partners and Swarovski Gems as Awards Partner.

The Cricket Tournament gives 16 of the top retail jewelers of Mumbai an opportunity to compete with each other and achieve honor for their respective stores. Also to enlighten the essential role women play in the jewellery industry not just as an employee but also as a customer, the set of rules demands to have at least 2 women in a team who will open the innings. Analogous to the rules and women’s role in the jewellery industry, the event was inaugurated in the presence of two lovely women from the film fraternity; Evelyn Sharma, an Indo-German actress who has featured in Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani and awaiting her upcoming film “Yaariyaan” along with Pooja Salvi, lead actress of Nautanki Saala.

At the inauguration, Evelyn Sharma said, “Nyuzmakers Cricket Challenge is a fantastic initiative. It’s great to see how women are being acknowledged in an event like this. A cricket challenge between top retail jewellers is a unique concept. What makes it even more fascinating is the fact that the game is not like a regular cricket match. With unusual rules and a unique game format, it’ll be really interesting to see who wins.”

“I love the fact that women are given so much importance in a game like cricket which people think is just a man’s game. Also getting top retail jewellers on a same platform is something I have not seen before. This is indeed a great initiative”, said Pooja Salvi.

Navin Sadarangani, proprietor of NYUZ, and Chief Organizer of this tournament professes, “It’s the 6th consecutive year that we have organized a Cricket Challenge. It feels great to see people reciprocating to it with so much enthusiasm that they look forward to this time in the calendar. The event is not only a good way to start the New Year but also a good way for the members of the same industry to interact and compete together for honors for their store.”

“The tournament is a wonderful way to get people from the same industry on one platform. It not only lets you meet and network with people of the same business but also helps build sportsman spirit. It’s indeed a great way to initiate a New Year,” quotes Piyush Patel of Dharmanandan Diamonds.

Highway Diaries…of landslides on the way to Tabo

Films capture journeys but in Imtiaz Ali’s much-awaited ‘Highway’, the journey has made the film. Presented by Sajid Nadiadwala and starring Alia Bhatt and Randeep Hooda, the film traverses six states of north India and captures the landscape of the different regions as it goes along.

Highway Diaries are short video snippets that capture the journey of the film and all the exciting experiences that the cast and crew had during its making.

In the latest episode of Highway Diaries, the crew of the film is seen driving through the narrow and perilous roads of the Himachal with continuous land slides, on their way to Tabo. Suddenly a big stone falls from the mountains and smashes the wind screen of one of their cars, forcing them to stop and wait for the machines to clear the road. The dangers of the road are overshadowed by the stunning panorama that these higher reaches of Himachal offers. The video diary ends with Alia Bhatt delivering her lines that rightly describe the breathtaking location, “Tumne kabhi bataya nahi ki duniya aisi bhi hai, unbelievable!”

Watch this episode of Highway Diaries here:

‘Highway’ will release on February 21st 2014.

Salman Khan has a long list of people that he has extended his helping hand to and has groomed to establish themselves in the film industry.

The most talked about of the list being Katrina Kaif. In the diva’s initial phases in the industry, she owes it all to the Khan for his support and advices.

Just like that, this time it is Daisy Shah, the leading lady of his upcoming film, Jai Ho who will be groomed by the star Khan.

Daisy Shah, who has shared screen space with Salman earlier as well but as a background dancer in his films will be sharing screen space with him yet again but this time as by starring opposite him.

Just like Katrina Kaif did not have a filmy family background, even Daisy Shah does not have a film background.

While Salman Khan has played an angel to a whole lot of people in the industry, the next person to get his hand is Daisy Shah.

Since she is new in the industry, Salman is explaining her about how things function in the industry, how she needs to start her interviews and deal with the media.

Daisy is a simple girl and Salman has asked her to keep her simplicity intact as that is her identity and that is what will take her a long way.

Ironically, as the trailer shows, the concept of the film is also majorly about helping people and Salman is the living example of this concept.

Spokesperson confirms the news and adds, “Daisy does not belong to a film background, so as Salman is launch her he is also going to help her groom in the industry. He has already started sharing tips with her as they will soon start film promotions.”
