TV actress Rachanaa Parulkar, who was last seen in the show Bharat Ka Veer Putra —Maharana Pratap, just got back from a beautiful vacation in the north-east part of India. The actress visited many picturesque areas like Shillong, Gangtok, Assam and even Bhutan.

The actress also shares how her family had a narrow escape from the cyclone Fani. Describing her experience, she said, “I had planned a trip with my family to Sikkim and Bhutan. We reached Guwahati on May 4, when we were informed that Eastern India had been hit by cyclone Fani. The airports had shut and so we decided to hire a car and travel to Cherapunji from Guwahati. We thought Fani had only affected Assam and Odisha and we would soon be away from the affected areas. Fortunately, the rains subsided 24 hours later and we decided to move ahead. We managed to reach Bagdogra somehow. Our driver came later with the car and belongings.”

Rachanaa, who is now back in Mumbai is hoping to get back to work after the holidays. She says, “Thankfully, we were not really affected by the cyclone and ended up enjoying the breathtaking sights of north-east India.”

The Voice India contestant Piyush Ambhore is back with a Rock Balad, Tujhe Jaana Hain Toh Jaa.

Talented singer, Piyush Ambhore who had made his presence felt in the singing reality show The Voice India has dished out a single- A Rock Ballad titled ‘Tujhe Jaana Hain toh Jaa’. Alongside the vocals, the song has been composed by Piyush as well. Piyush’s high pitched melodious voice has taken the song to a new level.

The song comes with a video featuring Piyush and Shrushti Tare as a couple. This romantic number talks of longing and the pangs of youthful love. It is hauntingly dark and lingers much after the music fades. The video is directed by Preet Singh Bhullar and depicts a poignant story as the song unfolds.

Talking about Tujhe Jaana Hain toh Jaa, Piyush stated, “I waited for the right song and call it my weakness, I ‘m a perfectionist. So till I get it spot on I will not put out stuff just for visibility. Also just to add, this song is hinged on Rock and as a genre it is somewhat lost. By mid 90s pop had taken over and rock took a back seat. Only recently do we see a genre revival and I would like to play a role in its revival. Who knows we can see Woodstock in India in the near future, at least the society is prepared for one”.

Once Tujhe Jaana Hain Toh Jaa picks up the team intends to re-group on a series of videos and songs. Talking about working with Suraj Palwade, the producer and Preet, Piyush said, “It was great collaborating with the ream. It’s difficult to get people who you can see a long term association with, Both Suraj and Preet are the other spokes of the wheel and Tujhe Jaana Hain Toh Jaa is as much theirs as its mine”.

The song produced by Suraj Palwade and 48 Frames Production, reflects great production values and it is released by Zee Music.

It showcases Indian films, supports Indian filmmakers and promotes the diverse perspectives of the Indian diaspora. A five-day showcase of multi-genre Indian films, the Festival hosts a number of participating filmmakers as well as a roster of events, including a panel session, a special screening and the celebrated OIFFA VIP Lounge with Indian music and dance.

The screening of 2 Band Radio would take place on June 13, 2019 (Thursday) at 3:30 PM on Screen A at Cineplex Cinemas Lansdowne and VIP, 325 Marché Way, Unit 107 (Ottawa).

Produced in association with Tariq Khan Productions and Zeba Sajid Films, the movie-2 Band Radio is loosely based on Leo Tolstoy’s novel Quench the Spark, also translated as A Spark Neglected Burns the House.

In an era of television with a hundred music channels and internet providing live musical shows and a vast music collection, it is hard to believe what world would have been ages ago without all these facilities! This movie will take the audience back to an era into a village which saw a radio for the first time in their life. The movie showcases rivalry to acquire that radio followed by tragic incidents and sad realities.

The story is about two neighbors and their desire to acquire and show off a Radio. The satirical theme of the movie is depicted through both tragedy and comedy. It is based on a real-life incident, portraying a satire on the present generation which is running after luxuries at the cost of relationship and happiness. The cast entertains you while the plot will show you how the world is going blind due to greed and jealousy. It’s mix up of drama, comedy and action. The filmmakers have carried a very strong message throughout, same as Leo Tolstoy conveyed in his book, ‘To quench a spark before it becomes a fire.’

Jitendra Rai, an Indian actor, who has worked with many Hollywood stars, is debuting with this film in Bollywood. Other star casts include Pradhuman Singh of Tere Bin Laden fame, Zahid Qureshi, Ritu Rajput, who is from Himachal Pradesh and is also debuting with this movie, Miss India Tourism Sneha Jagiasi and Senior actress of National School of Drama Neelu Dogra in female lead. Besides, Rahat Kazmi would be seen in a negative role with Hussain Khan. Tariq Khan has also played an important role in the film.

Directed by debutant Saki Shah, the film has been written by Rahat Kazmi and Kunwar Shakti Singh, produced by Rahat Kazmi Films, Tariq Khan production and Zeba Sajid Films and co-produced by Riaan Rai Production U.K. Music in the film has been contributed by Samrat Sarkar, Assh K and Canada-based band member Assad Que, while the background music has been scored by Tuhin K Biswas.

Producers are planning to release the film in Indian and Singapore theatres in August this year.

Hina Khan to star again in Rahat Kazmi’s next film?

The scintillating face of television shows and now Bollywood, Hina Khan is grabbing films back to back. After her red carpet stunning appearance at Cannes Film Festival recently, she would be once again seen with her debutant director and international film maker Rahat Kazmi.

The director who has written and directed many films and has worked with legends like Marc Buschet, launched Hina Khan into Bollywood with his film Lines, which made the headlines lately.

After Cannes, the actress had extended her stay in Europe which was presumed to be her vacation but recently, she was spotted with Rahat Kazmi and team, perhaps shooting for her next venture.

Rahat Kazmi confirmed the rumors saying, “We have signed Hina Khan for three films consecutively and here, in Europe, we are working on our next film where once again Hina Khan would be in a leading role.”

On asking as what made you cast Hina Khan again, the director answered with a smile saying he had never imagined that she would be such a professional and hard-working actress. He added, “Hina gets into the skin of the character she is playing. She is so realistic and dedicated that we signed three films in a row without giving it a second thought.”

The actress who keep her fans updated on social media through her vacation and shoot pictures, said she is glad to shoot in Europe with Rahat Kazmi and team. She excitedly said, “Our next film is being shot in some of the most beautiful locations of Europe and through this, even I am getting to explore a lot. Anyone who loves to travel would love to watch the scenic beauty captured and portrayed in the film.”

Hina Khan is an enthusiastic traveller and that is well explicit from her Instagram pictures. Talking about her next film, she said, “The character which I am playing is very different from Lines, where the role demanded being a simple Kashmiri girl, however, in my next, which is titled, Wish List, the role which I am playing is close to my heart as the character resembles a lot to who I am in real life.”

Wish list is co-written by Vimalesh Godeswar with Rahat Kazmi, produced by Rahat Kazmi Films, Tariq Khan Productions and Zeba Said Films, Co-produced by Hiro’s Faar Better Films & Riaan Rai Films in association with Ahmed Abbas Films, Assad Motion Pictures and Seven 2 Creations.

Nevertheless, Rahat Kazmi is famous for writing and directing out-of-the-box movies. Some of his famous work includes Identity Card (2014), Mantostaan (2017), while four of his greatest work namely Lihaaf, 2 Band Radio, Oxygen and Lines are yet to release. He is internationally acclaimed director whose several movies have premiered in International Film Festivals all over the world.

My first big Hindi serial show was as the main villain in Maha Kumbh, and Mary Kom was my first Hindi film. Since then, I’ve acted in over 50 shows and movies, and more recently, a variety of web series. I love web series for their experimentation and freedom. This web series — Hawa Badle Hassu — is crazy different, and I love it. I can’t reveal much but I play a kind of character that I’ve never seen in Indian entertainment. Actually, the whole series is like this — totally different. You’ve got a new, hybrid genre — thriller and sci-fi — with the environment as the central theme. I think audiences will find it very fresh. I’m actually very glad to be part of it, and have high expectations for future seasons!”
