चॉकलेट हिरो अंकुश आणि त्याची ट्रिपल सीट!!! 
मराठी सिनेसृष्टीतील चॉकलेट हिरो, अंकुश चौधरी हा सगळ्यांचाच लाडका आहे. त्याचा महिला चाहतावर्ग सुद्धा खूप मोठा आहे. ऑफस्क्रीन आणि ऑनस्क्रीन सुद्धा त्याच्यावर भाळणाऱ्या अनेकजणी पाहायला मिळतात. 'ट्रिपल सीट' या सिनेमात सुद्धा अंकुशवर अशीच काहीशी वेळ आलेली पाहायला मिळते. 'झी टॉकीज'वर 'ट्रिपल सीट' या सिनेमाचा 'वर्ल्ड टेलिव्हिजन प्रीमियर' होणार आहे, त्यानिमित्ताने अंकुशसोबत खास गप्पा मारण्यात आल्या.
१. 'ट्रिपल सीट'मधील तुझ्या भूमिकेविषयी आम्हाला सांग. त्यासाठी तू नेमकी कशी तयारी केलीस?
ट्रिपल सीट या नावातच एक गम्मत आहे. सिनेमाचं नाव ट्रिपल सीट ठेवण्यामागे सुद्धा एक कारण होतं. डबल सीट असेपर्यंत दोघेही आरामात आणि नीट बसलेले असतात, पण तिसऱ्या व्यक्तीला जागा दिली गेली, तर त्यांच्यातील कुणीही आरामदायी पद्धतीने बसू शकत नाही. अशी परिस्थिती आयुष्यात निर्माण झाली तर काय होईल, यावर आधिरीत सिनेमा म्हणजे ट्रिपल सीट!
एका सामान्य घरातील मुलाची भूमिका मी यात साकारली आहे. थोडा कमी शिकलेला असला, तरीही तो खूप संस्कारी आहे. सगळ्यांची काळजी घेणारा आणि समंजस आहे. थोडासा भोळा सुद्धा आहे. कुणीही त्याला सहज फसवू शकतं. असाच एकदिवस त्याला एक मिसकॉल येतो आणि त्यामुळे त्याचं आयुष्य कसं बदलून जातं, ते या चित्रपटात पाहायला मिळेल. 
२. 'कृष्णा' ही भूमिका साकारणं तुझ्यासाठी किती आव्हानात्मक ठरलं?
याआधी मी ज्याप्रकारच्या भूमिका केल्या आहेत, त्याहून वेगळं काहीतरी करणं, हे माझ्यासाठी सगळ्यात मोठं आव्हान होतं. मी निवडलेली कथा सुद्धा आधी होती, की ज्याप्रकारचा चित्रपट मी आधी केलेला नाही. कथा उत्तम असेल, तर मराठी प्रेक्षकवर्ग सिनेमागृहात गर्दी करतो, वेळात वेळ काढून टीव्हीवर सुद्धा सिनेमा आवर्जून बघतो. याआधी मी केलेल्या भूमिकांची छाप पुसून टाकून मला कृष्णा साकारायचा होता. ही गोष्ट आव्हानात्मक होती. आमचे लेखक अभिजित दळवी आणि दिग्दर्शक संकेत पावसे यांच्यामुळे आव्हान सोपं झालं. 
३. शिवानी आणि पल्लवी या सहकलाकारांसह काम करण्याचा अनुभव कसा होता?
मी पल्लवीसोबत याआधी काम केलेलं आहे. एकमेकांचे नायक-नायिका म्हणून या चित्रपटात आम्ही पहिल्यांदा काम करत होतो. ती एक गुणी अभिनेत्री आहे. तिने तिची भूमिका खूप सहजतेने आणि उत्तमप्रकारे साकारलेली आहे.
शिवानीसोबत मी या सिनेमाच्या निमित्ताने पहिल्यांदा काम करत होतो. ती जितकी छान दिसते, तितकाच सहज आणि उत्तम असा तिचा अभिनय आहे. कुठल्याही वेशभूषेत छानच दिसेल अशी ही अभिनेत्री आहे.
या दोघींनी उत्कृष्ट काम केले आहे. सिनेमा साकारण्यासाठी ही गोष्ट फार महत्त्वाची ठरली. 
४. शूटिंगदरम्यानची एखादी आठवण आम्हाला सांगशील का?
सिनेमाचं संपूर्ण ३० दिवसाचं शूटिंग अहमदनगरमध्ये झालं आहे. मुंबईतील ५-६ कलाकार सोडले, तर इतर कलाकार सुद्धा त्याच भागातील होते. या सिनेमात घडणाऱ्या महत्त्वाच्या गोष्टी या अचानक घडलेल्या दाखवण्यात आल्या आहेत. त्यामुळे, ऑफस्क्रीन कुठलीही थट्टामस्करी करायची नाही, हे आम्ही कटाक्षाने पाळलं. जेणेकरून पडद्यावर साकारला जाणारा अभिनय सुद्धा नैसर्गिक असेल, याची काळजी घेतली गेली. आम्ही खरोखर पहिल्यांदाच भेटलो आहोत, सगळ्या गोष्टी अचानक घडत आहेत, असे प्रसंग हुबेहूब साकारत यावेत, यासाठी आम्ही ही काळजी घेतली. 
५. तू कधी कुणाला असा फोन करून त्याची मस्करी केली आहेस का?
मी कुणालाही असा प्रॅन्क कॉल करून त्रास दिलेला नाही. 'ट्रिपल सीट'च्या निमित्ताने पहिल्यांदाच प्रॅन्क कॉल हा प्रकार अनुभवला. हा प्रॅन्क कॉल करत असताना मात्र आम्हाला खूप मजा आली. 
६. फोन करून कुणाची मस्करी करायची झाली, तर तू कुणाचा 'बकरा' करशील?
कुणालाही वाईट वाटेल, त्यांच्या भावना दुखावल्या जातील अशी गोष्ट मी करणार नाही. त्यामुळे कुणालाही प्रॅन्क कॉल करण्याचा प्रश्नच उद्भवत नाही. कुणी मला असा कॉल करणार असेल, तर खुशाल करावा. 
७. हा सिनेमा प्रेक्षकांनी का पाहावा असं तुम्हाला वाटतं?  
हैदराबादमध्ये खरोखर घडलेली ही घटना आहे. एखाद्या व्यक्तीशी जबरदस्तीने व नाईलाजाने लग्न करावं लागलं तर काय होऊ शकतं हे या सिनेमात पाहायला मिळेल. कुटुंबासोबत बसून, छानपैकी वेळ घालवायचा असेल, उत्तम मनोरंजन हवं असेल, तर येत्या रविवारी दुपारी १२ आणि संध्याकाळी ६ वाजता, 'झी टॉकीज'वर 'ट्रिपल सीट' हा सिनेमा पाहायला विसरू नका.

Pre-budget expectations from Great Lakes Institute of Management

Great Lakes Institute of Management, a leading B-school in India which was founded in 2004 by Padma Shri Dr. Bala V. Balachandran.
Kindly find below the budget expectation quote from Dr Suresh Ramanathan, Dean, Great Lakes Institute of Management:
“ We are seeing global headwinds buffeting the Indian economy, caused by uncertainties in the energy sector due to the USA-Iran imbroglio, and both bilateral and multilateral trade disputes between the USA, China, and members of the World Trade Organization (WTO). These pressures, together with softening in consumer spending and a manufacturing slowdown have led to the IMF projecting a much lower rate of GDP growth for next year. I would be keen to see the Honorable Finance Minister provide for the following in the upcoming budget session:
1.           Stimulate rural spending through aggressive promotion of rural employment, improving rural productivity and investing in infrastructure. It is not enough to provide populist sops such as middle-class tax cuts without also providing for more inclusive growth in the rural sector.
2.           Make it easier for home-grown startups and further reform the “angel tax” process that chills the entrepreneurial spirit and leads to the flight of capital to other, more start-up friendly countries.
3.           Provide a massive fillip to innovation, especially in areas related to Industry 4.0 such as IoT (Internet of Things), AI (Artificial Intelligence), and ML (machine learning). Substantial and sustained investments in incubators and accelerators, coupled with an emphasis on making solutions relevant for all sections of society via social entrepreneurship initiatives is the need of the hour.
4.           Reduce corporate taxes, but ensure much better compliance by using technology to better predict tax avoidance and default probability.”

Contestants get punished for their act, become ‘Sevaks’ of the house

Bigg Boss Tedha Synopsis - Day 117.jpg
Adding her own unique twist to the regular wake-up routine, Shehnaaz ups the quirkiness quotient of the show. After the daily morning dance session, the entertainer of the house Shehnaaz gets into a musical banter with a crow that pays them a morning visit. While Shehnaz is amused, Rashami seems to be rather entertained.
As the day goes by, Bigg Boss suddenly calls everyone in the living area. Taking Vishal’s example, he reprimands the contestants for their casual attitude towards the tasks. Known for conveniently getting the tasks called off, it's now time for the contestants to pay the price. After announcing that it was the contestants' last task to get immunity, Bigg Boss asks the contestants to evaluate themselves based on their past performances. As a surprise, they have to jointly nominate two contestants who they feel are responsible for getting the majority of the tasks cancelled. Those two nominated will have to face serious repercussions.
Arguments and fights break out inside the house and the contestants keep delaying the final judgment. After a lot of disagreements and chaos, Bigg Boss takes over. Sarcastically applauding them for their irresponsible behaviour, Bigg Boss schools them and orders two nominations from each contestant. Making the final decision based on the votes, Bigg Boss announces the names of those two contestants who will be the ‘Sevaks’ of the house. As Sevaks, the said contestants will have to work on other members’ house duties along with their personal duties.
Shefali Jariwala plays her card and reveals that they have been addressing Aarti as Sidharth’s 'fixed deposit' behind their back. Furious at the allegation, Aarti confronts Rashami which makes the fight uglier as Aarti breaks down.
Aarti takes over the washroom corner and cries her heart out. Siddhartha spots her and asks her the reason. Aarti responds by saying that she is hurt because her friend Rashami has been backbiting about her. She cries her heart out to Bigg Boss in the confession room later in the day. 
Which two contestants will be elected and become the ‘Sevaks’ of the house?

H.E. Mr Emmanuel Lenain, Ambassador of France to India
announces India, guest of honour at the Paris book fair 2020
and the winners of the Romain Rolland Book Prize for literary translation
at Jaipur Literature Festival, 23 January 2020
Jaipur, 23th January 2020The Ambassador of France to IndiaH.E. Mr Emmanuel Lenain, today announced that, as part of a reciprocal invitation, India is the guest of honour this year at Livre Paris (Paris Book Fair), while France will be the guest of honour at the New Delhi World Book Fair, January (2022). India was the Guest Country in Paris in 2002 and 2007 as well.
Leading and emerging Indian authors will be invited to Paris to meet readers, while publishing industry professional will consolidate the cooperation between France and India in this area during networking events.
H.E. Mr Emmanuel Lenain, said ‘having India as a guest of Honour at Livre Paris is a great opportunity to bring our minds closer and understand each other better. The fair will give a boost to the translations and publications of Indian books by French publishers and to the dynamic network between the French and Indian publishing industries.”
Announcing the winner of the Romain Rolland Book Prize, awarding every year the best translation of a French title into any Indian language, including English,  H.E. Mr Emmanuel Lenain said, ‘Three years into the existence of the Romain Rolland Book Prize, we have seen some talented translators and publishers awarded for their works. This year, we received 7 titles including fiction and a comic series. I am glad to announce that out of the four short-listed works, the Franco-Indian jury selected this year: the first three albums of the Astérix seriesAsterix and the Golden SickleAsterix and the Goths and Asterix the Gladiator, translated into Hindi by Dipa Chaudhuri and Puneet Gupta and published by Om Books International. I understand that the translation of Asterix was not easy, the names of the characters being products of word play with references to French terms. The translators have indeed done an exceptional work of contextualising some of these names while staying true to its original meaning. It is amazing to see such a part of French heritage, a glimpse into the history of the country from where the language originates, now being available to Hindi readers.’
The announcement was made in presence of Jean-Claude Perrier, advisor on India to the SNE (Syndicat National de l’Edition Française, organisers of the Paris book fair),  Vera Michalski-Hoffman, Publisher and President of the BIEF (International Bureau of French Publishers).
