By | Uncategorized | No Comments

Shatrughan Sinha and Dharmendra have been friends since 70s, their families are friends and when the kids were younger they often went on holidays together.  On the big screen we have seen them in DostBlackmailTeesri Aankh and after 20 years they are coming together again in Yamla Pagla Deewana Phir Se!

It is a strange feeling for both of them because their children are now working in films and when Dharmendra asked Shatrughan Sinha to make an appearance he could not refuse. It was an emotional moment for not just both of them but their entire families. Post the shooting Dharmendra revealed that Shatrughan Sinha presides as the judge and he hand his sons were delighted to have an old friend in their home production.

Sanhita Festival

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

Sanhita Manch Festival is an initiative by the Being Association which solely strives to create social awareness through theatre. Mumbai is the cultural hub of India that offers opportunities to all who get attracted to theatrical pursuits. Hindi literature might not date back to a very long forgotten era, but post-independence contemporary times have been a witness to its creative rise and development.

In the present scenario, the emerging writers always struggle to get noticed. Being Association aims at bringing new original theatre scripts to the readers and these plays include Harus Marus, a satire where the writer literally creates a mob of rats in search of food comparing it to the human life compelled to choose a life of rat over human life. Pashmina enlightens us on Kasmir by introducing us to Amar and Vibha Saxena, a close to retirement couple looking for a pashmina shawl and the discoveries that follow and finally Abhi Nahi Hoga Mera Antt is inspired from the life of poet Surya Kant Tripathi ‘Nirala’.

Girl in the City Chapter 3 premiered on 13th July across all Bindass Originals’ platforms, has already crossed the esteemed 10 million views mark on social media – with just a couple of weeks into the show. So what’s special about the show apart from the fact that it is inspirational and why is that everybody finds her and her story so relatable?

Protagonist Meera is no more the ordinary girl but somebody special, the question is how long can she remain special? Will she begin a trend of more  Meera’s to come or will the audience get tired of her struggles and her success and want more to the character and to the story, what do you think?

Disney’s Christopher Robin brings the timeless charm and nostalgia of A A Milne’s stories and characters to the big screen in an imaginative tale about the joy and purity of youth. A heartwarming live-action adventure, Christopher Robin is directed by Golden Globe nominee Marc Forster and stars Golden Globe winner and Emmy nominee Ewan McGregor as Christopher Robin; Golden Globe nominee Hayley Atwell as his wife, Evelyn; Bronte Carmichael as his daughter, Madeline; and Emmy winner Mark Gatiss as Giles Winslow, Robin’s boss the film addresses to the child in all of us.

 

The acclaimed director known for his eclectic range of films—including Finding Neverland, Quantum of Solace and The Kite Runner—grew up loving Disney live-action films and was immediately drawn to the story. It had a sense of magic realism, and he believed it had the potential to become an artistic, emotional, funny and timeless film. “When you are able to make people laugh and cry in the same movie and you are able to tell the story with integrity and ground it in reality and have the magic realism on top of it, it lifts your spirits and connects you with the people you love,” says Forster.
