This Holi, women can enjoy unabashedly the festival of color, thanks to a special helpline launched by UTV Motion Pictures’ Rowdy Rathore.
As part of a social responsibility marketing initiative, the action-comedy produced by Sanjay Leela Bhansali and Ronnie Screwvala and co-produced by designer Shabinaa Khan announced the launch of its “Holi Helpline” in the city, that will exclusively be active for the 8th March,2012, as a drive against eve teasing and sexual harassment.
Yesteryear's actor Jeetendra defends the intimate scene in "Bade Acche Lagte Hain", which was termed too bold for small screen and raised eyebrows, saying the bedroom sequence picturised on Ram Kapoor and Sakshi Tanwar was not vulgar.
"Actually, I really liked that romance. People might have considered it too much but I found it subtle. If a husband and a wife meet after six months, then it is bound to happen. But whatever happened was subtle. There was nothing vulgar in it. I found it alright," the 69-year-old said at the Global Indian Film Television Honours.
It was a grand set -- made like a fort. But the stage of the star-studded Star Parivaar Awards 2012 looked mesmerising with special 3D projections and visual effects.
The event was held at Andheri Sports Complex here Friday night.
The set, put up by production designer Omung Kumar, set the right mood for the evening, but it was the 3D projection stage that stole the show.
According to Star India CEO Uday Shankar, the stage replete with special effects was a reflection of the channel's philosophy of "Rishta Wahi, Soch Nayi".
"Saubhagyavati Bhava", a TV show which seeks to highlight the plight of women who face domestic abuse, has tied-up with an NGO to encourage men to curb the social evil.
The show, which airs on Life OK, has joined hands with Breakthrough, a human rights organisation, which uses the power of popular culture, leadership training and community education to transform public attitudes.
Television actor Sharad Kelkar, who is replacing Mohnish Behl in "Kuch Toh Log Kahenge", says he won't copy the former's style and will just play the lead character of Dr. Ashutosh.
"The director thought since the character requires a certain amount of maturity so I would perfectly fit into it. But I am not stepping into Mohnish-ji's shoes. I am stepping into the character's shoes. He acted very well and was brilliant in the show. But I am not going to copy him," Kelkar told IANS.
