John Abraham scores a hat trick

With the recent success of Sajid Nadiadwala’s Housefull 2 , its safe to say that John Abraham scored a hat trick with his latest hit ,post his last two successes Force and Desi Boyz –

Apart from his action image, the actor‘s first tryst with the out and out slapstick comedy hit bulls eye with the film collecting a whopping 15.25 crores on its opening day.

Overwhelmed with the figures the film is drawing in said John Abraham “Hard-work makes you have faith in your ability, but hits give you the confidence! Hits give the actor the market sale-ability and credibility that one needs to continue to try and experiment whether as an actor or producer. And to gain that confidence, it’s important to get that hit tag here. I am fortunate to be a part of a successful franchise of Housefull and I am thankful for having been considered good enough for Housefull 2.”

On asking the actor which genre he prefers, John affirms “I take my work seriously, be it comedy or action. In fact, I’m still game for other genres too. Be it action or comedy - You can do both, separately or together. Both have their own fun.But since audiences love it, action is becoming a staple diet in my films, even comedies”
Mohit Chauhan is all praises for Drummer Mukul Dongre

Mukul Dongre, the drummer is very excited nowadays as he got to perform with one of the talented singer Mohit Chauhan at NCPA.

Mukul Dongre says, “It was a fun to perform with Mohit Chauhan. He is a smooth singer with a pure soul full of talent. This event marks one of my best performances. For me sharing a stage with such a great singer was like a dream come true.”

Mohit Chauhan says, “Mukul is a treat to watch while he is drumming. Just watch him in the middle of his Kit Set Up and you will go crazy wondering as to how this wizard of his art must be manipulating the whole musical paraphernalia and creating magical and mind blowing sensational music. A Star is born in the music world. While performing with mukul I have become a fan of him. I wish him all the best for his career”.

An enigma to drum up the sounds from around the Globe is our very own Mumbai prodigy, "Mukul Dongre". Mukul is a well-oiled percussion machine equally brilliant with Indian Taal system as on drums in the land of tabla.   As a Percussionist and a Modern Drummer, he is a class of his own, having played with the best and the greatest. Mukul Dongre, son of the well-known Indian classical violinist Mr. Madhav Dongre, is one of the rare musicians who have brought the flavour of Indian music through western ways, keeping western grooves rocking.

He is capable of subtler, funkier grooves on the one hand and awe-inspiring solo improvisations on the other. In fact his technical virtuosity is such that his flash could sometimes overwhelm his music.

Mukul’s drumming reflects power, technique, dynamics and musicality. He adds his own innovative concepts and strengths, thus creating a percussive punch that's unique and his alone, yet highly musical and groove-oriented. He can play in a wide variety of musical genres, but is perhaps most notable for his fusion and Latin music playing. He is mostly known for Afro Cuban Latin drumming which is rare in India. He uses all four limbs both individually and as a collective to present multi-timbral sound scapes, adding Konnakol (the art of performing percussion syllables vocally) which is the fifth element in his Independence drumming, defining the drum set as a contemporary solo instrument for the world stage.

Generally acclaimed as a fusion drummer, Mukul harnessed his amazing dexterity into South & North Indian complexities. Not only does he attack the boundaries of a solo performer but he is credited to have had the honour to have performed with eminent artists as Pt. Hariprasad Chaurasia, Pt.Suresh Talwalkar, Pt. Vishwamohan Bhatt, Trilok Gurtu, Fazal Quereshi, Taufiq Quereshi, Rekha Bhardwaj, Niladri Kumar, Aman & Ayan Ali Khan, Rakesh Chaurasia, Kai Eckhardt, George Brooks,Pt. Ronu Majumdar & many more top artists from India.

His drumming entices you invoking curiosity as to what else he's going to offer. His sensational drumming skills make him an extraordinary stage performer. He is highly disciplined and is always keen to explore new ways of connecting with his audiences. Mukul endorses Premier Drums Artist Maple Series & Meinl Cymbals

His special tour was with world renowned guitarist Jeremy Spencer of Fleetwood Mac. His credentials also include performances with accomplished Indian classical artistes. Besides jazz he is comfortable performing both Hindustani and carnatic styles of Indian classical music.

Mukul has performed all over the world, including locations such as London, USA, New Zealand, Malaysia, South Africa, UAE, Singapore and many more.

His performances entertains you rhythmically and musically, as he mixes large doses of creativity by taking standard, classic and complicated material which have captivated audiences not only in India, but around the world.. These high accolades have been received for Mukul’s solos across the world for which he has received exceptional reviews.

*Rozlyn Khan’s breast cancer awareness video goes viral!*

Firebrand actress Rozlyn Khan, who went topless to promote breast cancer
awareness last week, has now gone a step further and released a video on
the internet, displaying a six-step self-examination to help women diagnose
the initial symptoms of breast cancer.

The four-minute video which went viral beginning this week has been
aesthetically shot and can prove vital for early detection of the malady.

"We all know that early detection of breast cancer can save lives. However,
many never bother for a check-up till their issues reach a stage where
medical intervention becomes an absolute necessity," Rozlyn points out.

"Through my simple self-examination video, I intend to spread maximum
awareness, inform and educate everyone about the malady and do my bit to
save lives," adds the actress.

Rozlyn also makes it a point to warn all Bollywood glam girls and
fashionistas who go for implants for breast enhancement, saying, "It might
feel good to have bigger breasts to attract more male attention and
eyeballs, but such cosmetic interference brings along a lot of risks too."

She hopes her awareness video helps bring clarity on more such issues.however she has got lovely response for video thousands in a day are watching it.

BBC World News Horizons examines advances in nanotechnology
in Houston, USA and Cambridge, England

Broadcasting on BBC World News on Saturday, April 14th  and Sunday, April 15th 2012

In the second episode of the series, Horizons presenters Adam Shaw and Saima Mohsin travel to the United States and the United Kingdom to explore the burgeoning science of nanotechnology. The technology enables scientists to arrange atoms and molecules to create new materials and devices which could have the potential to change our world through applications in medicine, electronics, biomaterials and energy production.

Horizons co-presenter Saima Mohsin begins at Rice University in Houston, Texas where she meets  Professor James Tour, one of the world’s leading pioneers of nanotechnology.  Saima explores technology that enables engineers to manipulate substances at the nano-scale and advances which could see the development of much faster and even flexible electronics, such as the production of a carbon based ink which can be printed onto flexible films to create electronic circuits powered by radio waves.  Saima also learns about what’s being called the next super material-- Graphene, one of the strongest and most conductive materials ever found. 

Professor James Tour said: “Graphene is a single sheet of graphite only one atom thick.  This is an amazing material.  It’s made up of all carbon and the carbon bond is one of the strongest bonds in the universe.  The other thing about Graphene that is really quite amazing is its electronic properties.  You can move information through Graphene at a very high rate, probably one hundred times faster than we can compute today.  It has materials applications, electronics applications.  The applications go into entirely new types of devices we haven’t even begun to envision yet.  It’s huge.”

Back in the UK, award-winning business journalist Adam Shaw visits Cambridge to learn about two companies using nanotechnology in applications which could save lives.  At Endomagnetics, Adam finds out how nanotechnology research is already offering an alternative way to detect breast cancer, using a new technology called Sentimag which uses magnetic tracers that are safer and more widely available than the radioactive tracers currently in use.  He sees the technique being trialed by specialists at Guys Hospital in London and explores whether it could ultimately revolutionize the treatment of cancer globally.

Mr Michael Douek, Guys Hospital, London explained: “I have been working on breast magnetic resonance imaging for many years.  It’s the first time we can use a hand held device to guide us to something we can actually see on magnetic resonance imaging.  It does assist the surgeon in finding the lymph gland to drain a breast tumour.  The technology is novel and has many exciting applications in breast cancer treatment.”

Finally Adam visits Owlstone Nanotech, another Cambridge-based company which is leading the field in chemical detection systems.  Using the latest nanofabrication techniques, the organization has created a device that can be programmed to detect a wide range of airborne chemical agents in extremely small quantities.  This technology could have a huge range of applications including, as Adam discovers, the development of a breathalyzer that would allow doctors to detect the presence of individual chemicals in a subject’s breath which could play a vital role in the non-invasive diagnosis of disease like diabetes in the future.

Mumbai, April 4, 2012: Keeping in mind with the overwhelming response and constant demand of the viewers of the popular television serial ‘Raja Shivchattrapati’, Iconic Chandrakant Productions Pvt. Ltd (ICPPL) to launch ‘Raja Shivchattrapati’ - the film on BIG SCREEN on coming April 13, 2012.

The film was first announced on the auspicious day of Gudi Padwa – a fitting tribute to the glorious chapter in the Indian history. 

The history of India is incomplete without the history of Marathas and Shivaji is the centre of that history. Shivaji advocated the ideology of Hindavi swarajya. He established a competent and progressive civil rule with the help of well regulated and disciplined military and well structured administrative organizations. His respect for all religions made him a truly great king.

The television show which was aired for over 200 hours was shot by epic technology with a vision of film quality output. It was a mammoth task for the team of ICPPL to convert the entire show into a film of 2 hrs 14 mins. Except shoot, the complete technical process had to be reworked like Dolby Digital, sound mix, colour corrections, graphics to mention few. Raja Shivchattrapati’, the film includes eight major incidences of Shivaji which created history like Birth of Shivaji, oath taken for Hindiva Swarajya at Rohideshwar temple, defeat of Afzal Khan, siege of Panhala by Siddi Jauhar, battle of Pavan Khind, attack on Shaista Khan, arrest in Agra and escape and Coronation.  

The film comprises of hair raising four songs and will soon launch a Music DVD along with the most memorable dialogues and title track of the television show.  
Talking on the launch, Mr Nitin Chandrakant Desai, said ‘From the time I remember, in my school days I have always been fascinated by Shivaji Maharaj. Till date I’ve read a number of books and worked on several projects, stage shows on Shivaji Maharaj including ‘Raja Shivchattrapati’, a TV serial and got record rating from viewers. We are blessed with the golden opportunity to make this epic movie and a huge privilege. We continue to live by abiding to Maharaj’s core values as he has laid strong emphasis on culture, which is an integral part of every individual’s life. The desire for the launch of the movie shows our love for this great Warrior. And we are not going to stop here. In our effort to take Shivaji’s values and culture globally, we have started working on a big International 3D movie on Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj in Hindi and English for the global audience.”

For the past 400 years, this great Maratha warrior has been a source of inspiration and pride to the past generations and will continue to inspire millions of youngsters in the future…

Star-studded Opening Ceremony of the home ground of Pune Warriors India - Subrata Roy Sahara Stadium

~Telecast at 6.55 p.m on Sunday, April 8 on Sahara One, Firangi and Filmy ~

Pune, April 5, 2012: The much anticipated opening ceremony of the home ground of Pune Warriors India - Subrata Roy Sahara Stadium in Pune will see the coming together of India’s noted celebrities including Shahenshah of Bollywood, Shri Amitabh Bachchan and Bollywood divas of the likes of Dia Mirza, Sameera Reddy, Priyanka Chopra, Preity Zinta, Prachi Desai, Neha Dhupia, Bipasha Basu and Jacqueline Fernandes. The spectators shall also be captivated by a series of special performance that will have 8 forms of cultural dances that included Kashmiri, Bengali, Bhangra, U.P. dance, Rajasthani, Gujarati, South Indian and Lavani dance. The ceremony will be aired on Sunday, April 8 at 6.55 p.m on Sahara One, Filmy and Firangi.

The viewers will experience a remarkable treat of cultural performances with 120 dholak and trumpet players along with 100 lezim dancers showcasing their talent along with an act by 192 cultural dancers. The evening will then be fired up with spellbound performances by the Bollywood divas of the likes of Bipasha Basu, Priyanka Chopra, Diya Mirza, Preity Zinta, Sameera Reddy, Jacqueline Fernandes, Prachi Desai, and Neha Dhupia who will sizzle on the dance floor with their scintillating moves representing various regions of India.

The ‘Subrata Roy Sahara Stadium’ of Maharashtra Cricket Association is an architectural jewel and has been designed by Sir Michael Hopkins, whereas the structural design has been done by AKT, U.K., setting up a stellar example of civil engineering. Keeping in mind the comfort of spectators, superior and even quality tip-up seats have been imported from Australia and have been installed in all areas of the stadium. The stadium and the seating arrangement have been designed in such a way that an unobstructed view is assured from each and every location making it the best match viewing experience.

M/s Shapoorji Pallonji & Company Limited have constructed the stadium with the modern precast design and construction expertise imported from Dubai. One of the most important features of the stadium is its rain water drainage system. It has been observed that many times rain plays a spoilsport and even light showers for some time force organizers to alter the match size / duration. To overcome this problem, MCA has opted for sand based outfield developed departmentally with technical assistance from STRI Limited, U.K. This technology facilitates faster drainage of rain water and in order to achieve this, a geo-textile fabric has been installed above the ground and perforated PVC pipes have been laid down to slope in trenches. The system has been successfully tested. Even during the heavy showers, water on the outfield drained out fast making it ready for play again just in some minutes.
