Sayantani Ghosh the first female contestant to exit the Bigg Boss house

From participating sportingly in the ghulam act to showing off dance move, Sayantani Ghosh has been one of the most calm and adjusting housemates on Bigg Boss. She never threw tantrums or got involved in any fights/quarrels. Being a TV soap actress, she did get along really well with her fellow co TV actors, Delnaaz, Urvashi & Aashka Goradia. But she also was never a “part” of any group within the house, which may have resulted in none of the housemates voting for her safety.

Talking about her personality, Sayantani was always chirpy and happy, always willing to entertain the other housemates with her dance moves or her singing. What many do not know is that she is a melodious singer as well. Quite often, she was seen entertaining the housemates with different, long forgotten songs. Sayantani took every day as it came and lived her life to the fullest. She was very compassionate with the other housemates and took every chance to be a part of all the happenings in the house. Well, one by one everyone has to leave the Bigg Boss house. Sayantani shall be missed a lot.

When asked, Sayantani said, “The Bigg Boss house is indeed a life changing experience. I’ve had a blast inside the house and have made some good friends. I wish I could stay in the house for a longer time and I hope that I get a chance to go to the house again as a wild card entrant. But, I know that its just a game and one day everyone has to come out. I’m looking forward to meeting my friends and family. I will definitely follow the rest of the season and wish the housemates the best of luck, and may the most deserving win!”

Strong Indian representation at Buddh International Circuit for penultimate round of JK Racing Asia Series 2012

~Aditya Patel and Akhil Khushlani to race for Team US Formula Project~

~Vishnu Prasad, Akhil Rabindra, Chetan Korada, Karminder Singh and Raj Bharath to drive for Team Meco Racing~

New Delhi, 26 October 2012: After completing its maiden European sojourn with races at legendary circuits like Paul Ricard Circuit, Circuit de Spa Francorchamps, Silverstone Circuit, the JK Racing Asia Series 2012 returns home for the penultimate round of the championship. Round 5 of the series will be held alongside the Formula 1 Indian Grand Prix at the Buddh International Circuit (BIC) on October 27 and 28, 2012. The JK Racing Asia Series is a one of its kind championship in the ‘junior’ Formula class racing that provides young drivers an opportunity to race on some of the best tracks across the globe alongside top stars from the world of motor racing.

JK Tyre has constantly promoted talent and given them the best available opportunity to excel. This season, JK Tyre created an opportunity for few Indian drivers to be a part of the much acclaimed series and represent India internationally. The season which began in Malaysia, 4 Indian drivers got the chance to be a part of the series. When the series moved to Europe, two strong contenders Akhil Khushlani and Aditya Patel were put on the grid to race alongside world class drivers. Now, when the series heads to its home turf, seven of India’s young and most promising racers get the opportunity to race in their home country in front of their home crowd. The seven Indian drivers on the grid are – Akhil Khushlani, the only Indian to finish second in the series at Silverstone, Aditya Patel, who was a guest driver at the Paul Ricard Circuit (France) and Circuit de Spa Francorchamps (Belgium), Vishnu Prasad, champion of the JK Tyre Volkswagen Polo R Cup 2011, National karting champions Raj Bharath & Karminder Singh, promising karting drivers Akhil Rabindra and Chetan Korada. While Akhil Khushlani & Aditya Patel will represent Team US Formula Project, Vishnu Prasad, Raj Bharath, Karminder Singh, Akhil Rabindra and Chetan Korada will be racing for the Indian team- Meco Racing at the Buddh International Circuit.

“We always wanted to have our Indian racing champions race in our international series here in their home country and by creating an opportunity for seven Indian drivers, we have accomplished that. This was part of our initial plan when we acquired the series and we are very happy that we have accomplished that in the second year itself,” said Mr. Sanjay Sharma, Head- Motorsport, JK Tyre & Industries Limited.

Leading this pack of drivers to carry the Indian tri-colour on the track will be India’s most promising motorsport talent Akhil Khushlani. Fresh after his scintillating performance in Round 4 at Silverstone where he finished second, ahead of the championship leader Nabil Jeffri, Khushlani would be keen to prove his mettle at home. Having raced in the series in 2009 when it was known as the Formula BMW, Khushlani has an impressive track record with two podium finishes and top 5 finishes in over 12 races. Akhil was a guest driver in the series last year during the Inaugural Indian Grand Prix and so is well versed with the track which will work in his favour. Eager to cement his position as one of the best racers in the country today and in a bid to fulfil his Formula One dreams, Khushlani is a strong contender for a podium finish and most certainly the driver to watch out for this weekend!

Keeping Khushlani company on the track with Team US Formula Project will be JK Tyre prodigy Aditya Patel who will race for Team US Formula Project. This has been a comeback season for Patel, having returned to single-seater racing after a gap of four years. Patel put in a commendable performance in Round 2 at Paul Ricard, France and in Round 3 at Spa Francorchamps, Belgium to finish in the top ten, but missed out in Round 4 at Silverstone due to a rejected visa. The Chennai based Patel recently created history by becoming the first Indian driver to win the gruelling 24 hours of Nurburgring and with that under his belt, this will be Aditya’s first outing at the Buddh International Circuit where he is eager to race and prove a point.

Completing the Indian contingent at the race will be Vishnu Prasad, Raj Bharath, Karminder Singh, Chetan Korada & Akhil Rabindra all of whom will represent Team Meco Racing, a team owned by Akbar Ebrahim & Armaan Ebrahim. While Bharath and Vishnu have an added advantage of knowing the track as both were part of the series in the Inaugural Indian Grand Prix held last year, it is going to be a challenge for Karminder, Chetan and Akhil. Prasad and Bharath participated in the opening round of the series this year. Vishnu Prasad, who won the JK Tyre VW Polo R Cup in 2011 and raced in the VW Scirocco Cup earlier this year, would be eager to showcase his skills which will give his career a much deserved impetus.

It will be an opportunity of a lifetime for these youngsters to not only rub shoulders with the biggest names in the class but also to showcase their skills and prove their mettle on the racetrack infront of the world motorsports fraternity.

The last four rounds of the series have witnessed some nail biting action between the drivers. The championship leader Nabil Jeffri, who missed the title last year by a mere seven points sits on top of the championship table with 164 points followed by South African Rookie driver Aston Hare in the second spot with 122 points and Ikhwan with 102 points in the third spot.

The qualifying round will be held on Saturday, October 27, 2012 at 9:15 am (local time) with Race 1 (Round 11) at 3:30 pm the same day and Race 2 (Round 12) at 12:00 noon on Sunday, October 28, 2012.

The JK Racing Asia Series is recognised by the World Governing Body for Motorsport, the Federation Intenationale De L’Automobile (FIA), as having special status that allows for young inexperienced drivers to participate on a National License. The reason for this is that the Series provides them with an Education and Coaching programme that teaches them all aspects of what it takes to build a career in motorsport.

The JK Racing Asia Series uses the 140bhp FB02, which has an unrivalled track record for training future Champions and developing them for a success with graduates at the highest level of the sport such as Sebastian Vettel, Nico Rosberg, Timo Glock, Daniel Ricciardo, Sebastien Buemi in Formula 1, Felipe Nasr and Rio Haryanto in GP2, Jazeman Jaafar, Sebastian Saveedra and Carlos Sainz Jr in British F3, and many more. This coupled with the highest safety standards, makes the FB02 the most suitable machine for up and coming drivers to learn on.

JK Tyre & Industries Ltd., the leading tyre manufacturer of India is the title partner for the JK Racing Asia Series. Organised by Motorsport Asia Ltd., the series is supported by Cody Maxx and official logistics partner, JAS Worldwide.

Seven Islands International Film Festival provides an exclusive platform for auteur’s cinema in India

Mumbai October 27, 2012: The Seven Islands International Film festival set the ball rolling with the ‘India Premier’ of the critically acclaimed movie ‘Berlin Telegraph’ by Leila Albayaty an Iraqi-French singer-songwriter and filmmaker. The film festival also witnessed overwhelming support from the stalwarts of the Indian Cinema, who supported the festival for providing a strong platform for auteur’s cinema in India. The festival was inaugurated by Dibaker Banerjee and Kalki Koechlin by lighting a ceremonial lamp.

Seven Islands International Film Festival will preview 50 movies across 18 countries, a platform created to celebrate World Cinema. The festival aims at bringing together global radical filmmakers with new cinematic approaches that break through the clutter of traditional filmmaking and create an audience for such movies.

Speaking on the inauguration Mr Dibaker Banerjee commented “I am extremely encouraged looking at the response such a platform has created for ‘auteurs cinema’. Audiences today are willing to pay attention towards experimental movies, however the multiplex culture in India doesn’t allow director to present such movies in front of the audiences. In such environment it is the film festivals that can make a difference in showcasing these movies through their platform. He further added we have already filed a petition with the government of India to grant 200 crores from the grant allotted for archiving 100years Indian cinema to encourage directors to focus on making ‘auters cinema’ that not only entertainment the audiences but also provides a strong socio economical message.”

Speaking on the occasion Kalki Koechlin said “I am happy to see a film festival promote a strong theme ‘Women against all odds’, as this will help women become more aware of the inherent strength that they possess. I congratulate Seven Islands Film Festival for taking up such a relevant theme and wish them the best for their future”.

In addition Ms Sakshi Ojha, Festival Director, Seven Islands International Film Festival said, “We are over whelmed by the support we have received both by the film fraternity and the audiences, I am sure the next few days would be equally exciting and will showcase movies that are sure to enthrall the audiences. The film festival will also create a platform for discussions and seminars around its theme on women and encourage emerging talents through musical performances and regional dance shows, providing a platform for a panoramic showcase of cultural talent in fields such as music, dance and the arts”.

A ‘touring festival’, Seven Islands International Film festival aims at creating a platform where different communities and students come together to watch, deliberate and discuss independent cinema. Launched at the Cannes Film Festival earlier this year, the Festival aims to bring together global radical filmmakers with new cinematic approaches that break through the clutter of traditional filmmaking.

The theme of the festival will change each year, depending on the broader socio-political happenings around the world.

Yuvaraj breaks down

Yet another guest on the sets of India’s Got Talent and it’s none other than India’s heartthrob Yuvraj Singh. While he has shown India his talent on the cricket field with his bat, he was rather astounded to see IGT’s contestant Nitesh Bharti’s talent. A sand artist; Nitesh started drawing lord Ganesha by using particular alphabets or numbers, naming this art form ‘Akshar Ganesh’. Due to bad financial conditions in the family, he started working as a helper in coaching classes but the love of art drew him back and he decided to then build himself as an artist, with the support of his mom.

Time is like a handful of sand- the tighter you grasp it, the faster it runs through your fingers and this is an emotion that both Yuvraj and Nitesh are known to have experienced. Yuvraj’s fight against cancer is a battle that pan India is proud to have witnessed, giving many the will to continue their fight for life as well. Nitesh Bharti touched the heartstrings of one and all by depicting Yuvraj’s journey for survival through his sand paintings. What made the occasion even more special was the fact that Colors got Yuvi’s mother to be present on the sets too, which was a surprise for Yuvraj. Looking at his cancer pictures brought back painful memories for Yuvraj, who walked away in tears and came back to say
“Sorry yaar, I got emotional after seeing the pictures. Its difficult for a cancer patient to watch these images and there were times I didn’t like seeing myself in the mirror in those days. God himself couldn’t be there so in that hard time, she was with me” and gave her a tight hug.
