With close to 150 Bollywood celebrities attending, an expected audience of around 20,000, and a business forum to facilitate talks of trade and collaborations, besides attractions integrating talent from India and Spain – the 17th IIFA event is poised to be a celebration of 60 years of the countries’ diplomatic relations.

Rupali Suri starrer gets warm reception in Sweden

 

Fashionista and theatre actress Rupali Suri’s film ‘Dad… Hold My Hand’ recently premiered to a warm reception at Cinema Indien; a film festival organized under the India Unlimited programme by the Embassy of India at Stockholm in Sweden. The movie was so appreciated that a repeat screening was also arranged.

But Rupali who plays a key role, does not sound ecstatic about the praise. Reason being, the writer-director of the movie Arun Frank is no more.

 

Frank, who spearheaded more than a dozen TV projects earlier, was no ordinary director. In the late 90s, Frank was dubbed ‘the most successful success machine’ for Indian television. He churned out serial after serial, soap after soap, like nobody’s business.

In fact, there was a time when he simultaneously directed television projects, rushing to and fro from one set to another and shooting with various production units at the same time. It was as if Frank was in a race against time. Little did he realize that his life actually would not give him much more time.

 

“This feature film is Mr Frank’s directorial debut in Bollywood. It was a project extremely close and special to him,” reminisces Rupali, mourning the maker’s demise. “I wish he was there to witness the response his film is getting,” she says.

Fashionista Rupali Suri reveals hot showstopper traits!

 

With the Lakme Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2016 fever refusing to die down, we can’t help but look at that certain magic that metamorphoses our Indian models into spectacular ramp queens.

Chic Bollywood sensations Deepika Padukone, Kangana Ranaut, Katrina Kaif and Priyanka Chopra have been some of the hot favourites of our designers for the runway.

 

Fashionista Rupali Suri who has been a new-age showstopper feels, that “though the fashion industry is a bit biased towards actresses, it’s also a boon to a whole lot of new entrants” on the glam scene. An actress herself, Rupali points out that it takes quite a few stunning qualities in a model to emerge as a showstopper.

So what are the basic requisites of dazzling on the runway? “First of all one has to have that feminine charisma and persona, a decent height and electrifying stage presence. Plus, one has to carry herself in the designer’s grand attire with exuberance and confidence, at the same time, effortlessly match with the theme of the show,” says Rupali.

 

True that! An intelligent supermodel is the one who understands the brand sensibilities and is in step with the brand image of the designer and his designs. After all, that’s the element which brings in the eyeballs and the business for the fashion industry.

Iranian award winning director Majid Majidi who is internationally acclaimed for movies like Children of Heaven, The Color of Paradise, Baran and his latest Muhammad: The Messenger of God, will attend a special screening of Akbar Khan’s National Award winning film Taj Mahal – An Eternal Love Story along with Iranian, Italian and Indian dignitaries at a private theatre in Juhu, Mumbai, this week.

Majidi will be joined by the Consul General of Iran, His Excellency Masood E Khaleghi, Director General, Ministry of Culture and Islamic Guidance Mr Habib Ildeygi and Iranian actor Mohammad Reza Golzar (touted as Iran’s George Clooney) along with diplomats, businessmen and Indian actors Dia Mirza and Poonam Dhillon, as well as stalwarts from the Italian film industry.

“India and Iran share historic relations. A cultural exchange through the medium of cinema is a great way to strengthen this bond,” says director-producer-actor Akbar Khan, who has arranged an event to honour and felicitate the Iranian dignitaries.

 

It can be noted that on its release a few years ago, Khan’s magnum opus Taj Mahal – An Eternal Love Story created history when it broke the 40-year-old ban on Indian movies in Pakistan. Then, Akbar Khan headed a momentous delegation along with illustrious filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt to Pakistan and opened the floodgates for the Indian film industry there.

“It’s a great time for India to establish relations with the world,” remarks Khan, who is set to embark on two new projects soon. Titled Taxi Driver, the first is a thriller to be shot entirely in London. The second is yet another magnum opus, a historical epic on Genghis Khan; founder of the Mongol Empire, one of the largest empires in the history of the world.

Rupali Suri owns a HUNDRED pairs of shoes

 

Cinderella would never have been married to Prince Charming if it wasn’t for those glass slippers and Carrie Bradshaw in Sex and the City had her share of shoes. There is no denying that women are fascinated with shoes. But most guys don’t even attempt to understand the profound relationship between a woman and her shoes.

For Gladrags MegaModel winner, television anchor, actress and event host Rupali Suri, shoes are much more than part of personality or attitude. “I have a fetish for them,” she reveals. “If I’d count my pairs, they may be around 100 to 105 by now. I own all kinds. I keep picking up shoes, bags and accessories like a collector. In a few years, I may need a separate house to stock all of it,” she laughs.

Sure! Good clothes and shoes are investments for actors and fashion people. But Rupali also admits that getting her hands, or rather her feet, on some perfect fitting stilettos, is quite a task. She adds that apart from shoes, no girl should forget the accessory that further defines personality. “Keep a watch on those watches you wear. Good ones can go a long way in making style statements.”

 

Her Hollywood style icon is J.Lo. “She styles herself with élan. Bollywood comes near with Deepika Padukone and Sonam Kapoor.”

So what are the brands Rupali can’t do without? “Though my latest addition are Louis Vuitton pearl earrings, I never buy brands for the heck of it. I go for the ones which suit my tastes and often mix and match. Being happy with how I carry myself is a luxury I cherish.” Atta girl!

 

Bhaag Johnny girl Mandana Karimi reveals her fitness secrets!

The gorgeous Mandana Karimi who is all set to make her Bollywood debut in Vikram Bhatt’s thriller Bhaag Johnny, has revealed her fitness secrets in a cover feature with Krunch Today magazine this month.

 Image

The cover girl says she works out four times a week with weights for two days and cardio for two other. When shooting or traveling, Mandana does twenty minutes of online-stimulated workout in her room.

 Image

“I eat healthy and eat a lot,” she admits. “But I’m very active throughout the day. Plus I don’t mind becoming a bit fuller,” she winks.

 Image

What’s surprising is that the shapely gal has no diet plan at all! “I’ve never had one,” she reveals. “I’m blessed with very high metabolism. But recently, when I returned to my routine after a break, I was asked to eat chocolates only once in a week.”

 Image

Bananas, almonds, salmon, dark chocolate and eggs are Mandana’s energy boosters. For a zero-flab diet, the girl recommends eating breakfast regularly and snacking throughout the day; as well as drinking lots of water to keep energy levels high.

 Image

But talk to her about her lifestyle and she says “it’s boring”. She doesn’t smoke or drink alcohol. Neither does she enjoy nightlife much! “I try to sleep and wake up early and love to have lots of baby sleep in my free time. I also try to get as many massages I can, as they are fab for blood circulation.”

 Image

But what Mandana craves for is a nice meal at her favourite quaint restaurants on weekends. Come Sundays, and she also plays table tennis. Makes us wonder if we can call her a homely firebrand!

India’s gets its first martial arts comedy Local Kung Fu

Jackie Chan once explored comedy within the action genre and won the hearts of millions. Now India is attempting a similar feat, starting off with a humble beginning.

 

This week, the country will get its first own full-blown ‘martial arts comedy’ in the form of Kenny Basumatary’s Assamese feature film Local Kung Fu which boasts of some fabulously choreographed action sequences amidst rip-roaring humour.

 Image

What’s more! This is one of the most inexpensive action films ever made, with a budget less than a lakh of rupees! The film’s team neither had a great budget nor the need to use trickery-like wires etc to execute their fights. All the fighters of Local Kung Fu are genuine martial artists who’ve trained for several years.

 

Kenny Basumatary has not only written and directed the film, but also plays the main protagonist along with other cast comprising Utkal Hazowary, Sangeeta Nair, Bonny Deori, Bibhash Sinha, Ronnie Deori, Johny Deori and AS Deori.

 Image

Come September 27 and Local Kung Fu will release in seven prominent cities in the country with English subtitles for audiences outside Assam. The film will be screened by PVR in Mumbai, Delhi, Pune, Kolkata, Bengaluru, Ahmedabad and Chennai, apart from an independent release in Assam.
