Indian animation pioneer and multiple National Award winner #BhimsainKhurana is dead. He was 82.

Considered as India's animation pioneer and avant-garde filmmaker, Bhimsain is one of the pioneers of parallel cinema movement in India of the 70s.

Born in Multan (now Pakistan) in 1936, Bhimsain moved to Lucknow after the partition. Belonging to the family of artists, he gravitated to arts and music early, studying fine arts and learning classical music which held him in good stead throughout his life. In 1961, Bhimsain moved to Mumbai after he secured a job at the monolith Films Division as background-painter. It is here that he learned the art and craft of animation film-making.

In 1971, he became independent. His first animated short film "The Climb" won him the prestigious "Silver Hugo award" at the Chicago Film Festival. He christened his company Climb Films (now Climb Media) after the film's success. Since then there has been no looking back. "Ek Anek Ekta" (1974) is considered India's most popular animation short film.

This was followed by path-breaking feature films "Gharaonda" (1977) & "Dooriyaan" (1979) and many TV series and documentaries bringing him accolades and awards galore.

Bhimsain has an unprecedented 16 President's National awards, several International awards and lifetime contribution awards by leading institutes and organizations.

Check out the Official trailer of Khajoor Pe Atke

  • facebook

#KhajoorPeAtke, a comedy around death, is a laugh riot written and directed by Harsh Chhaya, who makes his directorial debut.

The movie stars Manoj Pahwa, Vinay Pathak, Dolly Ahluwalia, Seema Pahwa, Sanah Kapoor and Suneeta Sengupta in the lead.

The story of the film revolves around an Item family, who on hearing news that one family member in Mumbai, Devendar, may pass off anytime soon, his siblings – Jeetendar, Ravindar and Lalita, rush down to be with him and his family for support, along with their families from across the country.

However when the patient neither improves nor passes away, everyone’s life is in a state of flux as they are unable to enjoy being in Mumbai, nor are they able to go back to their lives in their own towns and homes.

They are stuck in the flux of wanting the status of their loved one to change, one-way or the other with ancestral property looming in the backdrop.

The film is a tongue-in-cheek look at what a typical family goes through when on the outside one is supposed to behave politically correct but from the inside, each one is desperately frustrated and restless due to the tormenting uncertainty.

Talking about chemistry with Neha Kakkar in ‘Oh Humsafar’ song, Himansh said, “Neha Kakkar’s magic is such that whenever she comes everybody feels themselves as SRK (Shah Rukh Khan) so I didn’t have to do much effort for that. Tony Kakkar has composed such beautiful song and Manoj Muntashir has nicely written lyrics of it so it was easy task for me. I just had to look at Neha and express my feeling of heart. I am huge fan of Neha Kakkar so I want to thank Bhushan Kumar for giving me opportunity to feature in song.  We have shot this song at really nice locations so I feel it’s an amalgamation of every good thing”

There is sad ending to ‘Oh Humsafar’ song so when asked Neha reason of it, she said, I think mostly love stories are incomplete so we make films and videos like that as well from which people can relate themselves. We have shown love in the video and we have also shown sadness when couple gets separated with each other.”

Fashion plays a very important role in presenting who you are: Virat Kohli

  • facebook

Indian Cricket icon #ViratKohli says he fashion plays an important role in presenting who you are and how you feel.

The cricketer launched his own signature caps in collaboration with the exclusive headwear brand New Era, on Monday. 

When asked what fashion means to him as an athlete Kohli said, "I think fashion plays a very important role in presenting who you are, how you feel and how confident you feel about yourself.  Even the gear that I wear on the field isn't random. It is designed in a way that it syncs with me and looks the way I want it to. I think a lot of detailing goes into things that you wear on a daily bases and for me as an athlete on a pitch as well. I think that's a style statement in itself. 

I don't use random stuff as an athlete I design it myself. And that I think is the essence of knowing yourself and presenting it to the world with that confidence."

While talking about his collaboration with New Era Virat said, "I took some time out when we were playing the Champions Trophy in England and went to their office to work on the project. They were really excited to have me there as well. I think we spent about close to 3 hours there, going through the possible designs and materials. 

We went through a lot of caps, there were many styles and a mix of types of caps laid out for me to see. So I knew what it was going to look like in the end. Just to be able to sit there and design my own cap was pretty cool. I was pretty happy and excited about the collaboration and walked out very satisfied."
