Sony Entertainment Television Launches its Magnum Opus

‘Bharat Ka Veer Putra – Maharana Pratap’

~ Starting May 27th every Monday to Thursday at 10:00 pm ~

Mumbai, May 23 2013: He belonged to the Sisodia clan of Suryavanshi Rajputs who ruled Mewar… he, for centuries exemplified the qualities that Rajputs aspire to be… he is Bharat Ka Veer Putra Maharana Pratap! Keeping up with its commitment of bringing unconventional concepts, Sony Entertainment Television launches the historical magnum opus – ‘Bharat Ka Veer Putra Maharana Pratap’. The historical drama that narrates the awe-inspiring story of Pratap Singh, one of the first freedom fighters that India ever saw is produced by Contiloe Telefilms. It narrates the 400 year-old story of the revolutionary Rajput warrior ‘Maharana Pratap’ and brings forth the lesser known facts and achievements he made during his lifetime. Multi-talented Superstar Mr. Amitabh Bachchan lends his baritone voice for the first time in a television series to introduce Maharana Pratap’s history on Monday, May 27 at 10 pm on Sony Entertainment Television.

Maharana Pratap is a synonym to Rajput valor, chivalry and perseverance. He was a standalone fighter against Mughal aggression and never bent down to any temptation. He was loved by his men and they stood by him in his fight for independence. Gallantry and love for freedom was in Rana’s blood as he was the grandson of Rana Sangha and the son of Udai Singh. Pratap faced extreme hardship living the life of a fugitive but never gave up his struggle for freedom.

Bharat Ka Veer Putra Maharana Pratap will recount events starting from Pratap’s growing years – the training in his childhood, to the warfare and marvelous contributions he made to the history of India as the warrior Rajput. The show charts the journey of Maharana Pratap’s life right from adolescence to his glorious rise as a leader which led him being rechristened as the first freedom fighter of India. It will also present an important aspect of the legends story – his mother Maharani Jaivantha Bai Songara,

a driving force that inspired him and was instrumental in cultivating the spirit of bravery and humanism in him.

Besides narrating uncharted incidents from his life, the show highlights the relationship between mother-son Jaivantha Bai (played by Rajshree Thakur) and Pratap (played by Faisal Khan) that became an integral part of Pratap’s fight for Mewar.

Stating about the show, Sneha Rajani, Senior Executive Vice-President and Business Head, Sony Entertainment Television said, “Sony is constantly evolving to bring to the fore innovative storylines for the viewers. Taking this commitment forward we are immensely proud to present the story of one of the greatest Rajput warriors Maharana Pratap; it is an extremely powerful concept that is distinctive and refreshing. Bharat Ka Veer Putra Maharana Pratap chronicles the making of the legend Maharana Pratap, his growing years, how he was mentored to become a warrior king. The show will explore the uncharted pages from the life of this young Rajput legend and bring forth inspiring stories for today’s generation. With bringing alive a historical figure like Maharana Pratap, we hope to give the audience an insight into his inspirational life. I am confident that our viewers will enjoy this offering from Sony.”

Abhimanyu Singh, Producer Contiloe Productions said, “We are extremely happy to team up with Sony Entertainment Television yet again. Sony has always been a great platform for Contiloe shows and it is an honor for us to document the life of such a great Rajput warrior. The story of Maharana Pratap, the first freedom fighter of India, is a story that needed to be told. It is a story of an individual who against all odds fought for the dignity and freedom of his people. I really wish that today’s generation is entertained and inspired by this story.”

The show brings together some of the most talented set of actors to essay these powerful roles from history. Playing the protagonist, the fearless hero of Mewar – Maharana Pratap is Faisal Khan. Portraying the visionary character of Maharana Uday Singh, Pratap’s father is Shakti Anand, Jaivantha Bai – Pratap’s mother, his source of strength and inspiration will be played by Rajshree Thakur. Aashka Goradia plays Rani Bhatiyani and Divyaalakshmi plays Rani Sajja Bai, Pratap’s step mothers and they are ably supported by an ensemble of fine actors playing various characters.

Tune in to watch ‘Bharat Ka Veer Putra Maharana Pratap’

While everyone on home turf seems to be discussing Vidya Balan’s sartorial choices on the red carpet ,as she traveled to the French Riviera as part of the prestigious 9-member jury,the actress and her designer Sabyasachi Mukherjee remain unfazed with criticism ,reiterating that the National Award winner aims to represent the country’s cultural heritage and not mainstream glamour ,as India celebrates 100 years of Hindi cinema.

Voicing his vision behind the clothing says Sabyasachi, “Vidya is very clear that she is an actress and nothing more… She clearly kept saying that I and she both shouldn’t forget that she was going there as a jury member and the look should be very, very respectable,”

Vidya’s outfit’s infact had even caught Hollywood actor Sylvester Stallone’s attention as he approached her to compliment her on her unique sense of dressing – On home turf too several designers from the fashion fraternity have voiced their support towards her look and styling.

Says designer Anna Singh, “Vidya is looking fine in Cannes… Rekha has worn sarees for more than four decades to almost every place where she goes. Have you seen Hema Malini donning any other garb since the longest time? Vidya is the authentic face of our country and we want her to wear international gowns!Gosh!”.

Adds Sandeep Khosla who has designed for several international names, “Vidya overall has looked so radiant. And we have forgotten that she has done India proud by getting selected as a jury member. Sad but true. Also, I am very disturbed by people criticising the embroidery on Vidya’s sarees. Embroidery goes from India to all the other parts of the world. Why are we so mesmerised by globalization?”.

One of the hugest honors for a star to receive, Vidya Balan was selected as jury member at the 66th Cannes Film Festival, joining the likes of Oscar-winning actor Nicole Kidman, director Ang Lee, Japanese director Naomi Kawase, British scriptwriter-director-producer Lynne Ramsay, French actor-director Daniel Auteuil, Romanian scriptwriter-director-producer Cristian Mungiu and Austrian actor Christopher Waltz as part of the nine-member jury.

This is the First trip with my Family

The month of May is the vacation month for all of us. From Common man to the celebs. Everyone is going on a vacation. Destinations might to be different but the reason is same- to spend some time with the family and to escape the scorching heat of Mumbai.

Singer Kailash Kher went on a vacation with his wife and son Kabir to Australia. On asking he said, “Due to my hectic schedule, I don’t spend much of the time with my family. I have to stay away from home as I travel a lot on tours and concerts. Moreover this is the first trip with my family. After getting married I did not get a chance to go on a vacation and that is the reason I am in Australia with them enjoying the beautiful Sydney.”

INDIA, May 23rd, 2013 – This highly-anticipated Emmy®-nominated HBO comedy series created by Oscar® nominee Armando Iannucci that skewers the nuances of everyday office politics – set against the backdrop of the second highest office in the United States kicks off its ten-episode second season on May 24 at 9 PM on HBO DEFINED, with new episodes airing weekly at the same time.

VEEP follows the whirlwind day-to-day existence of Vice President Selina Meyer as she juggles her busy public schedule, puts out political fires, and defends the president’s interests, even as she tries to improve her dysfunctional relationship with the chief executive.

Picking up in the middle of midterm elections, this season finds Selina scoring slightly above-average ratings in several popularity polls, which she uses to increase her influence and to curry favor with the president and his new senior strategist Kent Davison (Gary Cole). But as we saw last season, even the most banal decision made by Selina and her staff can set off a ripple effect with unexpected and far-reaching consequences.

Julia Louis-Dreyfus reprises her Emmy®-winning role as Selina Meyer, Vice President of the United States. The returning ensemble cast of the series includes Tony Hale as Gary, her right-hand man; Anna Chlumsky as Amy, her chief of staff; Matt Walsh as Mike, Vice President Meyer’s weathered spokesperson; Reid Scott as Dan, an ambitious political aide; Timothy Simons as Jonah, a young and somewhat clueless White House liaison; and Sufe Bradshaw as Sue, Vice President Meyer’s executive assistant. Guest stars on the new season include Gary Cole and Kevin Dunn.

Last September, Julia Louis-Dreyfus received the Emmy® for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series for the series’ first season, with the series being nominated as for Outstanding Comedy Series as well.

The new season of VEEP premieres on Friday, May 24 at 9 PM exclusively on HBO DEFINED. Brand new episodes air weekly at the same time.

There are three 24-hour HBO movie channels available to viewers in India – HBO, the blockbuster movie channel which was launched in 2000, and two premium advertising free movie channels launched earlier this year, HBO DEFINED and HBO HITS available on leading DTH operators, Dish TV and Airtel Digital TV showcases the best of Hollywood and Bollywood content in high-definition and standard-definition.

Despite Mausi’s resistance owing to Biji’s unemployed status, their love story continued to enthrall the audiences. It wasn’t just sweet but extremely entertaining and endearing; it etched fond memories in the hearts of the viewers. But, will this be the same again in Lapataganj Ek Baar Phir. A source revealed that a new face could be signed on to play Surili!

A beautiful on-screen chemistry like the one between Biji(Played by Abbas Khan) and Surili(Preeti Amin) can never go unnoticed. Biji’s charming yet hilarious frolics and an innocent Surili falling for the boy next door had fans raving about their sizzling chemistry. We had earlier heard that Abbas and Preeti shared a fun off-screen chemistry too. No wonder, the pair brought so many colours and emotions to television screens.

It’s sure to bring cheer to the viewers who were avid fans of Lapataganj and promises to have lots in store for those who haven’t! Watch this space for more!
