Dara Shikhoh.
These days a serial Upanishad Ganga which airs on DD every Sunday at 10:00 am is becoming quite popular with the audience due to its unique style of presentation and the rareness of content. The serial which is produced by Chinmaya Mission and directed by Dr Chandraprakash Dwivedi  will now have Actor Zakir Hussain in the role of Mughal Prince Dara Shikoh coming Sunday i.e. 7th April. 
Till date everyone knew Dara Shikoh as elder brother of Aurangzeb but after watching this episode they will realize how very righteous and able he was. On the command of his guru Miya Mir he translated the teachings of “Upanishad” from Sanskrit to Persian” says Actor Zakir Hussain.
Zakir Hussain though has portrayed the roles of Ratnakar, Aghori Baba Avdoot and Yaksha in the serial but his favorite role in the serial has been that of Dara Shikoh. He says he had pleasure time acting this character because the way it is put forth brings out a new dimension of the character which hardly anybody knows!

Led by Bollywood Stars, 192 Cultural Dancers and 120 Dhol and Tutari players along with 100 Lezim Dancers to enthrall the audience
Gates will open for the ticket bearers at 4:00 p.m. on 8th April, 2012 for a night that will be full of excitement and glitterati
Mumbai, April 5, 2012: Sahara India Pariwar, the prime promoter & patron of sports in India, and owner of Pune IPL franchisee, has invited all the ticket bearers of the first IPL match hosted by ‘Subrata Roy Sahara Stadium’ on Sunday, 8th April, 2011, to be played between Pune Warriors India and Kings XI Punjab, to come and witness the Opening Ceremony of the home ground of Pune Warriors India, prior to the match. As ‘Subrata Roy Sahara Stadium’ hosts its first IPL match, the audiences are set to witness a gala night full of entertainment, fervor, glitterati and excitement. The gates will open for the audience at 4:00 p.m. and the gala ceremony will start at 5:30 p.m.

The evening will be a fusion of cricketing and entertainment excellence, and a mélange of the Indian cultural heritage and the young and chic tone of the Pune city. The high voltage performance by a number of Bollywood stars including Ms. Priyanka Chopra, Ms. Bipasha Basu, Ms. Dia Mirza, Ms. Preity Zinta, Ms. Neha Dhupia, Ms. Sameera Reddy and Ms. Jacqueline Fernandez along with the presence of Shri Amitabh Bachchan will make the audience enthralled. The ceremony shall have a fanfare by the grand performances of 120 Dhol and Tutari players and 100 Lezim Dancers. 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 ‘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.

According to the Writer and Creative Director "Navin Batra it’s high time that the back stage drama behind these so called Dharna’s so that public becomes aware." The producer and director Deepak Tanwar says" I'm well aware of the fact that this film can disturb many top level politicians and leaders but I want to show the real scenario of such dramas and I won't shy away from the reality because certain people with power can object to it."

The film is about burning topic of our country which is Dharna’s, spreading very fastly in the capital of India. Deepak Tanwar added that India is the country of Dharna’s where from the time of Gandhiji to Anna Hazare people raise their voice through hunger strike. The film is slated to release in the last week of April till then let's watch the real Dharna’s for a while!

Devshi Khanduri consider herself very lucky


Actress Devshi Khanduri, who was noticed for her debut film "Chargesheet", says theatre helps her maintain her acting skills.

"I have done a lot of theatre. I love it because there is a lot more creativity in it and it helps me keep my acting skills sharp. I keep learning lots of new things when I am doing theatre," Devshi Said.

But she says it is tough for a person without a film background to make a mark in the industry.

"It took me two years of auditioning, after which I got "Chargesheet". For a person like me, who is from a non-film background, it is very difficult to get into films. The number of young people who want to get into the industry is huge, but very few make it big.”

"I consider myself very lucky. But I had to work very hard for this opportunity. And it feels great that whatever work I have got has been on the basis of my performance," she said.

Now that she is getting good work, she makes sure she does not choose similar kind of roles. And had signed a Hollywood Film in which she is doing Lead role.

From a supporting actress to the main lead -- the journey has been a learning one for Devshi.

"Playing a lead role means getting the limelight, but with everything else it comes with a lot of responsibility and pressure. I hope I am able to live up to the expectations and the film does well," she said.

Priyanka Chopra took the packed audience at the opening ceremony of the fifth edition of IPL by surprise in Chennai on Tuesday when she went up in the air during her performance. Her performace was a huge success as audience couldnt stop raving about PC's act.

Looking chic in a black and white sequinned top, black pants and a red wrap-around skirt, the actress opened her act with her popular song Aaj Ki Raat.
She did away with her skirt for a sporty look as she was pulled up in the air with a harness for an aerial act on the Don tune.

The 29-year-old mesmerised the audience with her confidence, and landed on the stage for a power-packed dance on the number Dhantanaa from the film Kaminey.

She moved around in the audience, and urged the front row members, including Sourav Ganguly and Harbhajan Singh, to dance. Bhajji, as the latter is lovingly called, was sporting enough to get up and join her for a jig.

Later, Priyanka took to the stage again to interact with the cricketers of title holders Chennai Super Kings, who are led by India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni.

She pulled Dhoni’s leg, and asked the boys to join her for a dance on hit Tamil song Nakka Mukka.

The ceremony was opened by megastar Amitabh Bachchan, who rendered a soulful poem penned by lyricist Prasoon Joshi. It was followed by a performance by Colonial Cousins, after which Priyanka took to the stage.

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.
