How Did Bhaag Milka Bhaag Begin

One of the most awaited films of this year has been ‘Bhaag Milka Bhaag’. Its release is something everyone had been waiting for since a long time. The story is about Milka, a flying Sikh. During the 1947 partition, he had lost his entire family. He went on to compete at the Olympic Games during the years 1960 and 1964. The director of the film is Rakeysh Mehra. He states that Milka is one figure that is larger than life and that everyone has grown up with the folklore of Milkha.

 

Milkha is what Jesse Owens has meant for the field and tract for the West and what Pele has meant for football. The title of the film ‘Bhaag Milkha Bhaag’ is nothing but Milkha’s father’s last memorable words to Milkha. He had asked him to run for his life or else he would have been killed during the riots.

The kind of impact, Milkha Singh had on the nation simply enthralled director Rakeysh Mehra. The director gives an explanation that during that time, they had been searching for heroes but those who were outside of politics. The world knew Jawaharlal Nehru, the Prime Minister and Mahatma Gandhi, but no other hero. Accordingly Milkha decided to go out there and help in conquering the world for his country and in turn become a hero. Rakeysh Mehra states that Milka always ran along with his fears, but never away from them.

In Rome at the Olympics in 1960, Milkha had attained the fourth position in the four hundred meter race. The race was an interesting one especially because to come in the fourth place, a photo finish was required. At the Commonwealth Games and the Asian Games, Milkha had beaten all to win the gold medals. However at the Olympic Games he came fourth and thus could not win a medal at the Olympics, which had always been his dream. In this film, a blockbuster, a number of elements including action, emotion, drama and dance have been incorporated. According to Rakeysh Mehra, the main key in any film is drama. In the past a number of other directors too had experiment with other biopics and as the latest, Rakeysh Mehra too had joined the list. Milkha Singh’s role is being played by Bollywood actor, Farhan Akhtar.

Marriage Is Not A Big Deal For Salman Khan, KangnaRanaut, Kareena Kapoor And Parineeti Chopra!

Marriage Is Not A Big Deal For Salman Khan, KangnaRanaut, Kareena Kapoor And Parineeti Chopra!

It is the belief of a few Bollywood actors and actress that marriage is not such a big deal. In fact it is not as necessary as it is otherwise considered. What is all the big fuss about marriage, they think! Salman Khan is one of the most eligible bachelors in Bollywood right now. The whole country is waiting for this Dabangg actor to lose his single status. Actually, in his to-do list, getting married is not even the remotest option. He revealed this recently. He says he doesn’t know about marriage, but without getting married, there is a way to have kids and he is keen in that. In an interview Salman Khan stated that he is trying to identify a way of doing that. Steering clear of matrimony is not what just Sallu wants. Even Kareena Kapoor Khan who after a long deliberation has got married to Saif Ali Khan had stated before marriage, that it is no big deal getting married. In the past five years, she and Saif have managed to be together and hopefully in the next twenty-five years they will manage to do so. According to Bebo, marriage is nothing but just a legal paper. For the future generation, it seems that the marriage certificate will not be seen as a kind of permission for the couple to cohabit. Parineeta Chopra states that she is pretty cool about live-in relationships. When the day ends, it is normal to meet the partner, even in a live-in relationship. In case you feel tired, you can sleep in his home and return back to your own home in the morning. If this is done 3-4 times a week then it can be considered as a live-in relationship, according to her.

According to Imran Khan, there are many other actors who love the idea of being bonded legally. If you get married, it feels great. Many people get scared about marriage, but actually it is nothing like that. In fact Imran highly recommends marriage. In 2011 he married Avantika Mallik, his long time girlfriend. Even Vidya Balan has vouched for wedded bliss and wholeheartedly believes in the institution of marriage. She stated that even before she met Sidharth Roy Kapoor, her groom, she had planned the whole wedding ceremony in her head.

So what is the big deal about marriage for a few actors? According to them, marriage creates a dent in their career in films. It results in a rapid dropping of the actor’s salability. Kareena Kapoor states at the FICCI Frames 2013 opening day that both marriage and films are two different aspects and they should not be clubbed. If in case a girl gets married or loves someone, it will not mean that her onscreen character will not be loved by people. It is not at all a crime to get married or fall in love, she states. Even if such is the common thinking or perception, a number of Bollywood towners are being driven away from tying the nuptial knot.

 Just Like Shahrukh, Should Saif Ali Khan, Aamir Khan And Salman Khan Confess That They Are 40-Plus!

People leaped in sheer astonishment when Shahrukh Khan called himself forty year old in the film. His real age should be somewhere close to 47 years actually. Instead of making a claim that he is a 25 year old energetic boy, he claims that he is just 40-plus. Just like him there are a number of actors taking great pride in looking young and feel that they can pass the muster of being young twenty year old lads!

Jaya Bachchan And Amitabh Bachchan Celebrate Forty Years Of Togetherness On June 3, 2013.

Jaya Bachchan And Amitabh Bachchan Celebrate Forty Years Of Togetherness On June 3, 2013.

Jaya Bachchan and Amitabh Bachchan celebrated their fortieth wedding anniversary on June 3, 2013. They have been together for 4 decades and have featured in some of the most memorable films together. They were married on June 3, 1973. The very first film they starred opposite each other was Zanjeer. They got married soon after Zanjeer was released. It was through this film that Amitabh was able to get to the top league in the Bollywood industry. Both of them wanted to celebrate the success of this film in the month of May by going abroad. However, Amitabh’s parents kept insisting that before the trip they should get married. So in June 1973, they got married. Abhimaan, a classic film which featured both, was released in July. The film was about how the egos of a couple who belonged to the same profession clashed.

In an interview last year Jaya spoke very fondly about how she had seen Amitabh for the very first time in Pune at the Film and Television Institute of India. However, it was on the sets of Guddi that she got introduced to him. Actually the Amitabh was to play the role which was to be done by Samit Bhanja. But the film Anand also got released and director, Hrishikesh Mukherjee was not in favor of having a known face for playing the character of a person who did not feel impressed with cinema. So he decided not to take Amitabh in the film.

Both, Jaya and Amitabh starred opposite each other in Sholay, a 1975 iconic film.The very same year, Hrishida’s favorite film, Chupke Chupke was released. Then in a two year break from films, Jaya had Shweta and Abhishek, two beautiful kids. Shweta was taken care of as a baby more by Amitabh. By the time Abhishek was born, Amitabh was too busy with work.

In 1981, a film about an extramarital affair, called Silsila was released. There was a rumor that Amitabh had an affair with Rekha who also starred in Silsila. However both Amitabh and Jaya sailed through this. After 2 years, the couple was struck with tough times. In a shoot for Coolie, Amitabh met with an accident, and was seriously ill in hospital, but millions of fans prayed for him and he got well, as he believes even till today. All through the tough times, his wife Jaya was by his side.

His company ABCL – Amitabh Bachchan Corporation Ltd failed, but in the year 2000 he rose like a phoenix in Kaun Banega Crorepati, a TV show. He got his place etched in a million hearts of the Indian people once again, as a guide, philosopher and friend. He has this image of a loving grandpa which is a far cry from the otherwise ‘angry young man’. Both Jaya and Amitabh also made a special appearance in 1994 in Akka, a Marathi film. It was for the producer of the film, Deepak Sawant who was also the makeup man for Amitabh that he had done this goodwill gesture. In 2000 the two thespians starred in Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham a film produced by Karan Johar. In 2013 they featured in Ganga Devi, a Bhojpuri film made by Deepak Sawant. All through the 40 years of their married life, the both Amitabh Bachchan and Jaya Bachchan have had the same makeup artist! Recently, this Bollywood’s royal couple went to New York to attend The Great Gatsby premiere.

Sahara Will Not Renew Its Partnership With BCCI

Sahara Will Not Renew Its Partnership With BCCI

Sahara Pune Warriors has made a decision to pull out of IPL and discontinue renewal of BCCI sponsorship. For the current year, Sahara Pune Warriors has not paid the franchisee fee in full. Due to this, the bank guarantee has been encashed by BCCI. Pune Warriors India was owned by Sahara India Parivar. Their sponsorship of the Indian cricket team will not be renewed now as per announcements made. In December 2013 the present contract is expected to expire. The BCCI did not agree to bring down the fee, after a demand was made by the firm based in Lucknow.

The full franchisee fee of the Pune Warriors team was not paid by Sahara resulting in the BCCI encashment of the bank guarantee. A representative of Sahara has stated that the decision of Sahara to withdraw from the IPL is a final and firm one. The plug has been pulled by Sahara the second time actually. Due to the same kind of reasons, they pulled the plug in 2012, however they put in efforts to have their differences with BCCI bridged thus returning to the fold. For ten years, a franchise was brought by Sahara for Rs.1702 crores in the year 2011. Even if the whole fee is waived, Sahara states, that it will not return back to the IPL. The group has also stated that there was a lot of temptation for withdrawing from the sponsorship of the Indian cricket team. However, in the interest of the Indian cricket players, it refrained to do so. Out of the sixteen matches played, Pune Warriors have won four matches. In this IPL – 6th season, the team has finished at the eighth position out of nine.

Rajiv Shukla, Vice President of BCCI was approached by the owners of Sahara Pune Warriors. If there is no reduction in the installment fee and if the board tries to get the bank guarantees encashed, then Sahara would pull out of the tournament, the Pune Warrior owners stated. Efforts were put in by BCCI to convince the franchise a resolution to the issue would be found amicably. It also seems that the BCCI wants the whole issue to be postponed till the end of the league only, Sahara sources say. Sahara had made a request to the BCCI that the bank guarantees should not be touched. In April it was clearly stated that they would be pulling out of the cricket tournament. They did not want to cause any jeopardy and hence decided to wait till they would complete their share of matches, a source from Sahara informs. Efforts were made to talk to the BCCI however, the bank was also threatened with dire legal action if there was no release of bank guarantees. For quite a long time, Sahara had stood by BCCI and when no one had come forward, they have given money, states a source. Sahara is just not able to believe the fact that just for a few crores, the BCCI could do this to them.

The IPL cricket matches are viewed by millions across the world. It is a great experience watching the cricketers not only playing a fantastic cricket game, but also optimizing their gaming experience with some of the best cricket sunglasses in the world.
