Nach Baliye has been all over the news off lately and while it all started when reports about exes coming together first came, looks like there is a lot more to be talked about and discussed. It was just yesterday that we saw the first ever promo featuring Urvashi Dholakia and a mystery man, who as well know is Anuj Sachdeva. While that’s that, this piece of news might come across as a surprise to many since Erica Fernandes and Parth Samthaan have never made their relationship official.

According to the latest reports, also joining the show will be the Kasautii duo who is loved as Prerna and Anurag. The reports revealed that though the two have not confirmed their relationship and how there were date issues that they were facing, looks like they have zeroed down on the dates after all and a schedule has been worked out which wouldn’t affect either of the shows. Well, since they do have to shoot for a major part of the day for Kasautii, one can imagine the difficulty. However, now that things have worked out just about fine, looks like we will see them groove together after all.

Now, reports also have it that actors Pearl V Puri and Shraddha Arya might also join the show with their exes Hiba Nawab and Alam Makkar, however, there hasn’t been any development on it just as yet. The show will also feature real-life couples and well, this time is sure going to be an exciting time it seems.

The first Indian Environmental thriller series – Hawa Badle Hassu – Trailer revealed

Close on the heels of World Environment Day, the makers of ‘Hawa Badle Hassu’ launched the trailer of the upcoming series. The series in its season one, boasts of a stellar cast led by Chandan Roy Sanyal, Smita Tambe (Singham Returns fame) and Vikram Kochchar (Sacred Games, Sumit Samhal Lega fame). Hawa Badle Hassu is an Environmental Sci Fi thriller which has equal proportions of social comedy elements and full blown Sci-Fi intrigue.

Shot in Mumbai suburbs and virgin locations at Vaitarna (Maharashtra), Hawa Badle Hassu dishes out a strong message on environment sustainability and critical lifestyle changes, through interesting and futuristic story telling. Chandan plays the titular Hassu, who rides an eco- friendly rickshaw, spreading the message on environment conservation to his unassuming passengers.

Talking about the series, Director Saptaraj & Shiva, state, “It has been a roller-coaster ride working on the series. There are not too many takers for futuristic Sci-Fi in this industry and we are suckers for this kind of storytelling. When Protiqe approached us with his vision on this subject, and the fact that it was also going to be something meaningful to leave behind, we were so happy to come on board. He and the writers had been working on it for a bit, but he loved our ideas which were developed in the writing, and we are really happy with how the series is shaping up. We are preparing for a season 2 if the first one is received well”.

Adding voice to the directors, Producer & Co- writer, Protiqe Mojoomdar, stated, “It has been a fairly fun and challenging journey, to develop content in a genre which does not have a matured market yet. We have been purely driven by the content and how it resonated with us. Smita, Chandan, Zach and Vikram are not only great actors but terribly fertile minds that came on the project with ideas galore, which only firmed up our conviction in the story. We have been inspired by Leonardo Di Caprio’s Foundation and a lot of our research is courtesy their pathbreaking One Earth Model. We resonate as one with his vision #ClimateChangeIsReal”.

Hawa Badle Hassu is slated to be launched on Sony Liv, later this month.

French producer François d’Artemare praise for Rahat Kazmi’s Lihaaf, before its world premiere

It is a great moment for International filmmaker Rahat Kazmi and his team as his film Lihaaf is attracting legendary film makers and producers from all over the world.

As we all know, Rahat Kazmi along with Oscar winner Marc Baschet had recently announced in Cannes 2019 that their film, Lihaaf would premiere as the closing film at the 16th Indian Film Festival Stuttgart in July, 2019.

Now, Rahat Kazmi has revealed that even before his film’s premiere at Stuttgart, he has received another invitation from IndoGerman films, Stephan Ottenbruch for premiering Lihaaf in Berlin.

Rahat Kazmi is glad to receive the invitation. He expressed, “It’s an honour to receive an invitation from him and we are excited about it. Besides, we have also been called to premiere in US, Mexico, Singapore and Europe. It’s a joyous moment for the team.”

Not only this, the famous French film producer, François d’Artemare (nominated for Polish Academy Award for Best Film) too reached out to Rahat Kazmi and poured words of appreciation. After watching the film at a personal screening arranged by the team, François d’Artemare appreciated the hardwork of the actors, giving special emphasis to the beautiful light and strong plot. He also approached the actress Sonal Sehgal on social media and appreciated her role in the film.

Rahat Kazmi is quite delightful on receiving golden words of appreciation from internationally acclaimed personalities. Sharing his happiness, he said, “We are nevertheless overwhelmed with the kind of response we are getting from all over the world. We were aware of the impact even before we started shooting the movie. No denying the fact, it’s one of the greatest works of Ismat Chughtai. So, once, during our research and visit to the author’s family, her grandson, Ashish Sawhny said that now the family’s respect is on your shoulders. We felt so responsible as we knew that many renowned filmmakers had tried to get the copyright too but we were the lucky ones to receive it.”

Apart from these all personalities, Rahat Kazmi has also received words of appreciation and encouragement from Siddiq Barmak, a Golden Globe-winner Afghan film director and producer. Rahat Kazmi got an opportunity to interact with Siddiq Barmak during a film festival in Singapore. Thereafter, Rahat Kazmi arranged a special screening for him in Singapore itself. After watching, Siddiq Barmak lauded the film saying, “It can be one of the best film of the year due to its plot and the immense effort of the team.”

Rahat Kazmi says, “We were happy to receive appreciation from a person who has won Golden Globe for Best Foreign Language Film (Osama, 2014). Not only did he appreciate but also enlightened us with his inputs in sound design and editing. We edited the film following his suggestions and you can see the outcome, the film is being loved by all and sundry.”

Sharing one of the incidents during the making of the film, Rahat Kazmi said, “I have evolved as a person while working on this film. Once, when I talked about the script with a renowned woman director, she appreciated my idea and encouraged me to work on the script but also advised me to get a woman director to assist as the story is about women’s sexuality. I understood her apprehensions but took it as a challenge. No doubt, it was difficult for a man to get into the shoes of women and portray it from a woman’s perception but after hearing all these songs of praise, I guess I succeeded in giving justice to the story.”

Rahat Kazmi thanked the protagonists of the film, Sonal Sehgal and Tannishtha Chatterjee for helping him understand the plot from a woman’s point of view. A period drama, the film is based on Ismat Chughtai’s most celebrated story Lihaaf (published 1942). The film is co-written and directed by Rahat Kazmi and produced by Rahat Kazmi Films, Tariq Khan Productions, and Zeba Sajid filmNamita Lal, who will also be seen in the film, playing the role of Rabbo, which is one of the most important characters of the film. Other producers include Tariq Khan and Zeba.

The film is set to hit the theatres by the end of this year.
