Rock On!! 2: 5 things to look forward to in Farhan-Shraddha’s film

first_imgFarhan Akhtar shared the first poster of his upcoming film Rock On!! 2 on Friday (September 2) morning. Woohooo! Here we go… #RockOn2 poster. #ReliveTheMagik Farhan Akhtar (@FarOutAkhtar) September 2, 2016The poster features an older Farhan Akhar (old compared to his rockstar avatar of the first film which released in 2008) along with Arjun Rampal sans the long hair that his character oseph Joe Mascarenhas sported. Purab Kohli makes a return as Killer Drummer KD.ALSO READ: Rock On!! 2 will be a mature story, says Purab Kohli OPINION: Salman to Shraddha, why are Bollywood actors turning singers?WATCH: Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy team up with Gulzar for Mirzya title track And joining the cast are Shraddha Kapoor and new kid on the block Shashank Arora of Brahman Naman (2016) and Titli (2015) fame.The film that is scheduled to release on November 11 this year and with a new director (Shujaat Saudagar), a fresh cast, and a new setting altogether, we can expect some interesting things from this rock musical…Here are five things we are looking forward to the most in Rock On!! 2:A NEW STORYFarhan Akhtar, the star and producer of the Rock On!! films, said in an interview earlier that Rock On!! 2 is a completely new story where the characters from the first film are retained but that is about it. The 42-year-old actor-director-singer-producer was quoted as saying, “There is a history of what happened in  the first film. But there is nothing really from the first film that is carried forward into this film.”advertisementApart from the three bandmates of Magik – Aditya (Farhan), Joe (Arjun) and KD (Purab), Prachi Desai and Shahana Goswami, who played Farhan and Arjun’s wives respectively in the first film, also star in Rock On!! 2. That way, the audience well-familiar with the first film, will be able to relate to the sequel as  well.However, Rock On!! 2 has moved far away from Mumbai, and this time it is set in an entirely new place…THE SHILLONG ROCK SCENEThat Shillong is known as the ‘rock capital’ of India is not news. Whether or not that moniker is justified can be questioned but without a shred of a doubt, this north-eastern Indian city has given India some of its best bands, like Soulmate, Afflatus and Aberrant. The city’s fans are some of the most passionate,  intense rock music fans of the country.Rock On!! 2 is set in and has been shot majorly in Shillong. Speaking on Rock On!! 2, Farhan had earlier said, “The film really is about that place, about that culture, it is about the region’s problem. The largest conflict in the movie is the regional conflict? There is a personal issue also but the main is the regional  problem.”Farhan has also said that Rock On!! 2 will focus heavily on the region’s music and in fact, a song in the local language has also been included in the film.”The movie is about rock and this genre is huge in the North-East. There is a band in the region called Somersault, which is a part of the film, there is a song in Khassi. The North-East music features seriously in the film. Everybody in the North-East plays an instrument or they sing. You don’t get to see that  generally. When we were there, we had music playing 5 or 6 in the morning and no one was complaining. Everyone was enjoying that,” Farhan was quoted saying.We can definitely expect a lot of interesting new music entering Bollywood thanks to Rock On!! 2. And speaking of “new” things, we can’t wait to see…SHRADDHA KAPOOR AS A ROCKSTARShraddha Kapoor looks intriguing in the poster and whether or not, she will have her own band or be a part of Magik, remains to be seen. It is already known that the Ek Villain singer will be singing three songs in the film. She has been coached by Indian singer and vocal coach Samantha Edwards for the same.  Samantha has previously trained Priyanka Chopra and Alia Bhatt, both actors who also turned singers.SHASHANK ARORA – THE NEW MAGIK WONDERBOYActor-musician Shashank Arora who made his feature film debut in the 2015 social thriller Titli is the new addition to Magik. After Rob (Luke Kenny), the keyboardist of Magik, died because of brain tumour in Rock On!!, the four-piece band would obviously look for a new person to fill the void.Enter Shashank. He has already shown his acting range by playing a complicated, disturbed young man in Titli, and later, a sexually charged teenager in 2016’s Brahman Naman. Most importantly, Shashank’s stance in the poster makes it look like he’s playing the guitar. Now, Rob was a keyboardist. If Magik becomes a three-guitar band, expect Magik to be a harder rock band than before. And therefore…A NEW SOUND FROM SHANKAR-EHSAAN-LOYadvertisementIF Magik indeed is a three-guitar band in Rock On!! 2, and IF Shraddha is indeed a part of the band, then musically, Rock On!! 2 will be pretty different from Rock On!!. Post Rock On!!, we have already had films one after the other in Bollywood which have explored rock music, for instance, Ranbir Kapoor’s  Rockstar (2011). On top of that, Rock On!! 2, is exploring the Shillong rock scene and as such, the film’s music will obviously include new sounds, references and styles. Therefore, Rock On!! 2, is expected to not try what the first Rock On!! or earlier rock music films like Rockstar did.Here’s to expecting Magik from the music of Rock On!! 2.( The writer tweets as @devarsighosh )last_img read more

Real Madrid will attack Atletico Madrid despite Champions League tie lead, says Zinedine Zidane

first_imgReal Madrid will attack city rivals Atletico Madrid in their Champions League semi-final second leg and not sit back and defend their 3-0 lead as they chase a place in the final, coach Zinedine Zidane said on Tuesday.Cristiano Ronaldo’s hat-trick in a dominant first leg display put the 11-times European champions on the brink of a third final in four years.”We’re going to approach the second leg just as any other game, to go out strong and give everything,” Zidane told a news conference ahead of Wednesday’s game at the Vicente Calderon.”We’ll see what happens then, but our aim wont change, the result changes nothing and we’re going to try and score.”The prospect of going out to pile more misery on Atletico will be music to the ears of Ronaldo, who has scored eight times in the last three Champions League games and also hit a treble in the quarter-final second leg against Bayern Munich.The Portuguese player has shone in games against Real’s neighbours this season, also scoring all three goals in their 3-0 win at Atletico in the league in November.Atletico’s 51-year-old stadium will close in the summer when Diego Simeone’s side moves to their new 67,000 capacity Wanda Metropolitano stadium in the north of the Spanish capital.The scorer of a sensational volley against Bayer Leverkusen to win the 2002 Champions League for Real, Zidane joined an elite group to have won the Champions League as a player and a coach when he steered Los Blancos to a penalty shoot-out victory over Atletico last year.advertisementThe Frenchman is on the cusp of a sixth Champions League final either on the pitch or in the dugout.”I feel great and I’m not feeling any vertigo,” he said.”This club relishes moments like this and we’re focused on tomorrow’s game. Whatever you have achieved in the past you need to keep proving yourself. We may have beaten them in two finals but it will still be a different game.”They have their strengths and we have ours, the fact we’ve won two finals against them doesn’t mean we’re going to get through if we think it does then we’re making a big mistake.”last_img read more

UK government faces noconfidence vote after Brexit defeat

first_imgLONDON — British Prime Minister Theresa May faces a no-confidence vote Wednesday, a day after Parliament rejected her Brexit deal by an historic margin.May is battling to save her job after staking her political reputation on a last-ditch effort to win support for the divorce agreement she negotiated with the European Union. Though defeat was widely expected, the scale of the rout — 432-202 — was devastating for May’s leadership.Immediately after the vote, Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn tabled a no-confidence motion, saying it will give Parliament a chance to give its verdict “on the sheer incompetence of this government.”Still, most analysts predict May will survive because her Conservative Party and the Democratic Unionist Party, which supports it, are expected to vote against the motion.The Associated Presslast_img read more

Ban urges restraint after day of deadly clashes across the Middle East

15 May 2011Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has led a chorus of United Nations calls for all sides in the Middle East to exercise maximum restraint after a day of clashes around the region in which at least a dozen people are reported to have died. Clashes took place today along the Blue Line between Israel and Lebanon, in the occupied Golan after the breach of the disengagement line from the Syrian side, and in the occupied Palestinian territory.The clashes followed demonstrations by Palestinians to mark the anniversary of Israeli independence in 1948.“The Secretary-General is deeply concerned that a significant number of people have been killed or injured,” his spokesperson said in a statement. “He calls on all concerned to show restraint and refrain from provocations so as to prevent escalation of tensions and ensure civilians are not killed or injured.”In the statement Mr. Ban said he was “acutely conscious of the unsustainable status quo in the Arab-Israeli conflict, which is only thrown into sharper relief by the profound political changes now under way in the region.”The Secretary-General stressed “the urgent need for a just, lasting and comprehensive Arab-Israeli peace, which ensures dignity and security for all, including an end to occupation, an end to conflict, and a just and agreed solution to the plight of Palestinian refugees.”He reiterated calls to resume Israeli-Palestinian negotiations towards a resolution that would allow two States to live side by side in peace and security, and “advance the broader goal of a comprehensive regional peace in the Middle East.”Mr. Ban’s call for restraint was echoed by Major-General Alberto Asarta Cuevas, the Force Commander of the UN peacekeeping operation in southern Lebanon (UNIFIL), following the clashes near the village of Maroun al Ras.Maj.-Gen. Cuevas said he was in personal contact with the command of the Lebanese and Israeli parties as part of UNIFIL’s efforts to prevent further casualties.“Immediate concrete security steps on the ground are necessary,” he said in a statement.Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs and UN Emergency Relief Coordinator Valerie Amos, currently visiting the occupied Palestinian territory, voiced extreme concern about today’s clashes.“The situation cannot continue in this way. It is innocent people who are losing their lives,” she said.Ms. Amos met with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas and Prime Minister Salam Fayyad as she visited Ramallah, East Jerusalem and Area C of the West Bank. The Under-Secretary-General visited a school in Area C that is scheduled for demolition because the Al Jahalin Bedouin community has not been able to obtain a building permit from Israeli authorities.“Palestinians are utterly frustrated by the impact of Israeli policies on their lives. They can’t move freely around their territory. They can’t plan their communities. They are evicted from their homes. Their homes are regularly demolished,” she said.“I don’t believe that most people in Israel have any idea of the way planning policies are used to divide and harass communities and families. They would not themselves like to be subjected to such behaviour.”Ms. Amos is slated to visit the Gaza Strip tomorrow, the third day of her four-day visit to the region. read more

Creditors oppose NCLT order may pose hurdles in the way of RComAircel

first_imgRepresentational image.Raghavendra N IBTCreditors of telecommunications companies Reliance Communications (RCom) and unlisted Aircel could challenge the National Company Law Tribunal (NCLT) order pronounced on August 14, in the National Company Law Appellate Tribunal (NCLAT), which dismisses their right to call for a lenders’ meeting.The RCom-Aircel merger was admitted by NCLT last week. Moreover, the tribunal dismissed the operational creditors’ argument that the lenders need to clarify how the outstanding will be settled before the merger is allowed to go ahead, the Economic Times reported.The order pronounced by the tribunal suggested that any creditor accounting for 5 percent or less of the companies’ total debt cannot oppose the merger.The three key operational creditors who have provided services in this case are Ericsson, GTL Infrastructure, and Bharti Infratel. They are called creditors because they provided services and not because they lent money, the ET report said.Also read: NCLT approves Reliance Communications-Aircel merger, Brookfield dealThe business daily quoted the lawyer involved on behalf of the creditors of Reliance and Aircel saying, “The order is clear that any of our objections can be made at any time during the process. But it also dismisses all claimants, saying none of us account for 5 per cent of debt exposure.”Of the three key creditors involved in the case, tower company GTL Infra argued that it alone accounted for over 5 percent of the exposure between current receivables and future commitments, according to ET.But the argument has been dismissed by the tribunal saying none of these companies were owed more than 5 percent of the total outstanding loan in the last disclosed balance sheet.The company is likely to challenge it, a person close to the development told the business daily.Beside the three companies, lenders who previously objected to the merger plea are China Development Bank (CDB), Standard Chartered Bank and HSBC. The latter three withdrew their objections, but retained their right to object at a later stage.last_img read more
