Sachiin Joshi celebrates Ganesh Chaturthi with gusto and grandeur!

While many in Bollywood are bhakths of Lord Ganesha, you might not be knowing that Aazaan star Sachiin Joshi is a hardcore one.

Fascinated by the forms of Ganpati Bappa since his childhood, Sachiin has been a firm believer in Ganeshji’s blessings. This year, along with his friends and family, he traveled to his hometown Pune for the immersion.

“Sachiin and his family have been celebrating the ritual of Ganesh Chaturthi since years with a lot of gusto and grandeur, and this year, it just got better” said the actor’s publicist Dale Bhagwagar. “He participated in a five-hour long super-energetic procession after the pooja and aarti,” he informed.

What’s more! The actor had specially called for Nasik dhol along with another band that took turns to perform a mix of traditional and Bollywood numbers.

This built the tempo and momentum right up to the immersion, while he and his friends danced with great frenzy. To add to this, was a dazzling display of fireworks.

Nearly 400 people gathered to join this celebration, followed by traditional dinner after the immersion.

After Vivek Oberoi, Juhi Chawla, Ranjitha…

Tamil actress Kausalya turns Swami Nithyananda’s disciple!

Bollywood actors Vivek Oberoi and Juhi Chawla follow him and his teachings. Tamil actress Ranjitha continues to be his disciple. And while his detractors remain flummoxed over Swami Nithyananda’s constantly rising popularity despite controversies, the self-styled godman has a new disciple in another Tamil actress Kausalya.

Kausalya, who played lead roles in famous Kollywood films like Sollamale, Vaanathaippola and Priyamudan, and later turned into a character artist with Vijay’s movies Thirumalai and Santhosh Subramaniam, recently joined the spiritual leader’s ashram as a disciple.

Apparently, Kausalya was bothered by a severe back pain over the last couple of years. She is said to have tried various treatments, before her friend suggested she try the healing therapies at Nithyananda’s ashram.

“Swami Nithyananda is a well-known healer and an enlightened personality. His aura and knowledge is abounding. But just as controversies follow Brand Nithyananda in the media; glamour comes marching and rallying behind him,” remarked his publicist Dale Bhagwagar.

“However, inspite of the constant media speculations and controversy overdose, Swami Nithyananda remains almost unaffected and always smiling,” he pointed out and added, “Nothing is able to scar his mind or persona, and his legion of followers keeps growing.”

Retribution of the old cast

The Sony Pictures film Resident Evil-Retribution which is slated to release this week will see many familiar faces. The old cast and the popular characters of the franchise return with this fifth film. The creativity and innovation of the film’s director Paul W.S. Anderson prompted this move. The world of Umbrella Corporation which is always evolving when comes up with clones of Alice; the move gives push to the idea of having return of the old casts. The characters like Rain, One, Jill, Carlos, Luther West and Albert Wesker that were crushed by the brutal fate in the earlier films are back with a bang in this one.

Says Anderson, “It’s exciting for us and we hope, for the fans to have these actors and their characters back. It was a unique opportunity to work with everyone again.” The cast which is back is equally excited for the film as the thrill gets doubled and adding more to the audience experience will be the release of the film in 3D.

Popular character of Rain which is played by Michelle Rodriguez says, “I’m really happy to be back. I didn’t think there’d ever be a possibility of bringing back my character. But there’s always an open window when you’re dealing with science fiction. The possibilities are endless. I’m really happy we have a director who is so creative.”

Similar are the views of the other casts who make a comeback. Sienna Guillory who returns once again as Jill Valentine says, “On these films, you’re part of a team and the support is incredible. Milla is the most giving actress to work with and Paul has a limitless imagination. I felt like I had come home.” Oded Fehr, familiar to audiences as Carlos Olivera, a member of the Umbrella forces special commando unit says that his return makes perfect sense. “If you can have a hundred Alices, why not have more Carloses, Ones and Rains?” he asks.

Talking about the bond developed between Alice and Luther West in Resident Evil: Afterlife, Actor Boris Kodjoe says, “They had an amazing partnership in the last movie. But she believes that he’s gone and it’s a nice surprise for her to find out he’s not. When they meet again, there’s obvious relief on both sides, as well as excitement that they are going to embark on a new adventure.” While Actor Colin Salmon believes the return of his character One, who is an archetypal soldier, is reinvigorating. And with this film returns the biggest villain of the game Albert Wesker which is played by Shawn Roberts. “Albert Wesker will not stay in the background. He’s decided to take top position. I rule the world and it feels pretty good to be sitting at the top,” says Roberts.

However, the concept of comeback has an added flavor of intrigue as the characters developed in this part are sure to make the audience wonder. Some characters might even be seen playing dual role like the character of Rodriguez or Fehr. Shawn Roberts’s character of that of a villain Albert Wesker which hardly ever spoke in the earlier films will now have a suspicious aura surrounding the character. “Sometimes Wesker seems like a James Bond type of villain, talking when he should just be killing people, and it was fun to use Shawn that way,” chips in Anderson.

The film envelopes more gun play and more fight and much attention was paid to selection of an appropriate actor to suit characters so as to retain the enthusiasm of the gamers. And with a comeback of the popular characters the film is sure to gain maximum numbers in its mark sheet from the audience. The film releases in India in Hindi, English, Tamil and Telugu.

Super-fast elite fields for Airtel Delhi Half Marathon 2012

New Delhi, September 27, 2012: A super-fast men’s international elite field, with 12 athletes having sub-60 minute personal bests, and an equally powerful women’s field, among them Ethiopian Aselefech Mergia, Namibian Helalia Johansson and Kenyan Caroline Kilel was announced for the Airtel Delhi Half Marathon at the ADHM media center by presenter Tim Hutchings on Thursday.

Defending champion Lelisa Desisa of Ethiopia and Ezekiel Chebii, who recently clocked 51.05 while winning at Lille and is ranked the world’s No. 3 road runner, were present at the conference and confidently expressed their readiness to have a go at the course record of 59.15, which stands in the name of Deriba Merga.

With the temperature expected to drop in the coming days, the athletes did not seem to worried about the weather, given that the men’s race is slated to start at 6.30 am.

“I hope that the weather remains cool on Sunday, then I will be able to break my previous mark and attempt the course record, said Lelisa Desisa, who clocked 59.30 minutes last year.

However, Desisa will also have to contend with an in-form and confident Ezekiel Chebii, who recently made the athletics world take notice of him with a blistering run of 59.05 while winning at Lille on September 1.

“I am competing with these Ethiopians for the first time. They are very tough competitors and will run a strong race. Since this is my first visit to India, I want to do well in this race and am confident and in good shape,” said Chebii.

The other Ethiopian in the field Chebii is referring to is Atsedu Tsegay, who clocked this year’s fastest time of 58.34 while winning at Prague. Tsegay too is expected to run a very fast race, with an eye not only on the course record, but on the world record held by Eritrean Zersenay Tadese.

In the women’s section, Aselefech Mergia of Ethiopia will lead the pack and hopes to win this year’s Airtel Delhi Half Marathon. She has recovered from a leg injury and now raring to go. “I stopped training due to my injury but now I’m back. I am training well to perform my best in this Half Marathon,” said Aselefech, who has won this event in 2008 and 2010.

However, she knows the competition will be tough as Helah Kiprop, Caroline Kilel (both from Kenya) and Helalia Johannes of Namibia will give her tough competition. Kiprop won the TCS World 10K Bangalore in year, where she clocked 32:22 mins. Caroline Cheptanui Kilel is the winner at the 2011 Boston Marathon and the 2010 Frankfurt Marathon.

Kilel has also won marathons in Ljubljana, Taipei, Nairobi and Palermo. Her personal best for the distance is 2:22:36 hours (set in Boston, 2011). She also competes in half marathons and has a personal best of 1:08:16 hours over that distance.

Johannes, who participated in the Beijing and London Olympics – where she finished 12th, holds the Namibian records in all long-distant runs. “The Airtel Delhi Half Marathon is a big event for us. I have trained well for this and hope to give my best,” she stated.

Manish does a ‘Nagin’ dance

There are times when an onlooker gets so involved in a performance that he can’t help but become a part of it. Something similar happened on the sets of COLORS talent reality show, India’s Got Talent when the Shree Art group performed the Nagin dance. Manish Paul along with Cyrus Sahukar, who are the host of the show, were so mesmerized by the dance that they decided to shake a leg with them.. Manish performed with the group and It seemed India found another talent of Manish…A great Nagin dancer besides being a cool show host as well!
