The Titans meet to start a new Era in Home Entertainment

If it’s not DDB, then it’s not a TV – Shahrukh Khan

Mumbai, August 14, 2012: Videocon, India’s leading Consumer Durable Company, has successfully announced its partnership with the world’s most advanced TV technology platform- Digital Direct Broadcast (DDB) with much fanfare at an event held in Mumbai.

This multi-faceted revolutionary Videocon DDB LED was unveiled by the Bollywood superstar, Mr. Shahrukh Khan. Later, the product range of all new LEDs available in sizes from 32” to 58” was also launched on the occasion.

Sharing his thoughts, Shahrukh Khan on the launch, “Coming from the film industry, the work we do is showed over 2 types of screens- Cinemas and TV. Now, cinemas have evolved tremendously over time, with digitization and 3D and so many options for the viewers to enjoy our films the way they were meant to be.

But when it comes to the millions of people watching TV at home, the impact of the film is diluted. So I’m on the lookout for a TV that can do justice to the world-class visual and sound effects we use in our films. This revolutionary initiative by Videocon DDB provides me with an opportunity to witness the future of television technology firsthand.”

Mr. Anirudh Dhoot, Director, Videocon said on the association, “We believe that this revolutionary technology in the Indian ecosphere will transform the way consumers view their television. Providing a set-top box less platform to the Indian consumers and enlivening them with true to life audio and video capabilities separates this iconic technology from other players in the market. Bringing in a revolutionary digital experience to the consumers, this technological platform shall offer a world-class technology to the Indian television market and bring at par to international standards. Videocon is glad to be chosen to partner with DDB”

This association sets new Global standards in Home Entertainment Experience with the convergence of various features never experienced before on a single platform! It will help receive digital signals without a set-top box, giving an audio-visual experience never experienced before. Its cloud computing abilities help you work and save your files on the cloud, while giving a superior browsing experience of favourite websites, including Facebook, Youtube and Twitter. It also has the ability to convert 2D channels into life-like 3D quality, making the experience to watch Videocon DDB LEDs nothing short of being magical. So you no more need multiple devices, your Videocon DDB LED will do it all!

Yet another Devotional Epic Film from Aushim Khetarpal


Aushim Khetarpal, who produced and acted in the film “Shirdi Sai baba” brings yet another devotional film “Baba Ramsaa Peer” for the entertainment of the audience. A historical epic film based on the story of a Rajasthani saint Baba Ramdevji stars Aushim in the lead with Actress Gracy Singh.

Following the success of his previous film Shirdi Sai Baba Aushim decided to trace the origins of the saint and in one of his research he came across Baba Ramsaa Peer. The devotees of these Rajasthani saint believe he was the incarnation of Lord Vishnu and later reincarnated in the form of Sai Baba who took shelter in Shirdi. Both the saints took birth in different eras but their preaching remains same which is one of the reason why the devotees so strongly believe Sai Baba to be reincarnation of Baba Ramdevji.

Aushim when asked about why he is inclined to make only devotional films, he said, “I simply want to spread the message given by my Sai and if it is possible that by making a film I can reach millions across the globe, why not do it? Baba Ramsaa Peer too gives the same preachings as Sai and is even said to have reincarnated as Sai Baba. It is therefore that I decided to make this film.”

The film produced under the banner of Satish Tondon Production and Orient Tradelink Ltd. will be releasing on 7th September. The music which will also include Gujarati and Rajasthani folk music is given by Surinder Bachan and the film is directed by Bhabani Prasad.
