Focus On Tollywood, After Baahubali: Anil Kapoor

Bollywood Actor Anil Kapoor addressing the media in Hyderabad recently said that after Baahubali everybody was looking at Telugu Film Industry. “The whole world is looking at Hyderabad. Telugu industry has got lot of potential,” he said. Anil said he had special affection towards the film industry. “I began my acting career in Telugu.  It was ‘Vamsa Vruksham’ in 1980 I made my debut in the Telugu film industry as a lead actor. It was directed by the legend director Bapu.  “The film was later dubbed into Hindi as Pyaar Ka Sindoor,” he said.

The actor stated that he had special affection for people and the city. Replying to questions, Anil Kapoor said, if given an opportunity he would explore working in the Telugu film industry.  “I have learnt a lot from this industry. I have learnt honesty, integrity, hardworking, determination from the people of Telugu. I am grateful to Telugu people for their encouragement.” When quizzed on the hot weather, he jokingly said: “I don’t sweat so much because I work out well in the gym in the morning.”

 

Music, Music All The Way

Music, Music All The Way

Fusion Music Concert, second in the series of three-month long Hyderabad Arts Festival—Season 5, was held at Botanical Club House, Kondapur. Fusion Music by Purbayan Chatterjee, Mahalakshmi Iyer, Ojas Adhiya & Sanjoy Das was a great experience as the master musicians joined together. Performance was a beautiful blend of instrumental and vocal. Purbayan Chatterjee’s mesmerizing sitar combined with Mahalakshmi Iyer’s melodious voice, as Ojas’ magical fingers played the tabla and Sanjoy joined with his guitar, to create music that mesmerized everyone in the audience.

‘Love - An Endless Journey’ was the third in the series of the festival at Phoenix Arena, Hitech City. Painter and sand artist Kanthrisa and Kathak dancer Nishi Ratnam, combined their magical art forms along with Gopi on Violin and Sravanthi on vocals, to explore the different aspects of Love - visible and invisible, material and spiritual.

Confluence of many art forms

Love - an endless journey - was a unique ballet that made audiences witness a splendid confluence of many art forms – sand art, dance, instrumental music and vocals interspersed by a riveting narration. A story teller at heart, Kanth used the medium of story-telling to invoke celebrated characters of Yashoda and Krishna, Meerabai and eminent personalities like famous Punjabi writer Amrita Pritam and hugely popular Che Guevara to answer a quintessential question - “What is love”?

The ballet began with a group of people celebrating life and coming together. In the ballet, mother Yashoda was seen pondering over this question and Krishna decided to offer a solution. The ballet then took the audience on a memorable journey into the world of myth and lives of remarkable people who redefined love.

Bringing Smiles

The HAF in association with Ohri’s group organised HAF Smiles. Supported by JCI Trends and Star Care Foundation, HAF Smiles is the Annual Charity Program of the HAF, where 300 underprivileged children were given a royal treatment and fed sumptuously. These 300 under privileged kids were brought from various orphanages. “Apart from giving kids a great day, they were also provided with a Power Packed Goodie Bag as a remembrance of the day. The bag they are proud to own,” say Ramakrishna, Manoj, Anand, the trio behind the HAF. The bag contains personal hygiene and educational products.

HAF Smiles also conducted a free medical check-up as part of the day-long event for these kids. A team of doctors from Aaditya Hospital conducted the camp and prepared a health card for each child with the height, weight and other physical examination findings. These cards were handed over to the volunteers from those orphanages for further action if required.

HAF Smiles also conducted a drawing and coloring competition in association with Flora Fauna Foundation, which was personally conducted and handled by Tejdeep Kaur Menon, DGP - Special Protection Force, Telangana State as part of the World Environment Day.

Chandana Khan Exhibits 50 Paintings

Pegasus Art Gallery hosted a Solo Show of Paintings of Chandana Khan, IAS, (Retd.) titled Kaleidoscope from 25th April to 15th May. The exhibition was inaugurated by Kingshuk Nag, Ex-Editor, Times of India and Guest of honour, Dr. Raghu Ram, Director & Consultant Surgeon, KIMS. Soumya Mishra IPS, Vinod Kumar Agrwal, IAS, (Retd), Ramana Reddy, President, Hyderabad Art Society, Dr. K. Lakshmi, Director, State Gallery of Art and many others were present during the inauguration. A total of 50 paintings were displayed.

Speaking about her show, Chandana Khan said that in life, we never leave any place for good. “We keep on visiting the same often not physically, but in mind, over and over again things may not come to a full circle, but different strands of the psyche touch many points of the circle in a time span, longer or shorter,” she said.

“I don’t believe that all the paintings of an artist are to be prototypes, with minor alterations. In an existential flux of life, everything changes very subtly. Due to impact of external environment and stream of consciousness, the human being changes,” she said.
