AAMIR’S PIERCED NOSE FOR PERFECTION

AAMIR’S PIERCED NOSE FOR PERFECTION

Be it imbibing Mahavir Singh Phogat’s dialect, body language and fit to fat transformation in Dangal OR playing a young rebellious protagonist Bhuvan in Lagaan, he is known for pushing the limits every time he plays any character. The true spirit of an artist and creativity is what he symbolises.

His keen eye for detailing, meticulous choices, dedication and commitment towards his work makes him the Mr. Perfectionist of Bollywood.  However, Mr. Khan feels it is not a correct name for him and he should rather be called Mr Passionate.

True to his title of Mr. Passionate, Aamir khan for his new movie – Thugs of Hindostan has taken things to another level. He has got his ears and nose pierced for the character. He leaves no stone unturned to get into the skin of the characters that he plays on-screen.

Aamir Khan New Look

The caption of the recent post shared by Aamir’s fan club reads, “Ear and nose piercing: #AamirKhan goes through a ‘painful’ transformation for #ThugsofHindostan.” He is currently shooting in Malta, where he is also joined by his co-stars Amitabh Bachchan, Katrina Kaif and Fatima Sana Shaikh.

The excitement gets doubled this time as we see these two geniuses together for the first time- Mr. Amitabh Bachchan & Mr. Aamir Khan. Mr. Bachchan recently shared a photograph on his social media page captioned as ‘THUGS OF HINDOSTAN in a short respite from the gruelling shoot in Malta’

Amitabh Bachchan & Aamir Khan

Mr. Bachchan tweeted as well this morning saying ‘Back from work on TOH (Thugs of Hindostan).. It is rough and tough! But when ever did anyone gain without it.

Thugs of Hindostan

Mr Vijay Krishna Acharya, who also directed Dhoom 3 is the director of Thugs of Hindostan under the Yash Raj Banner. Thugs of Hindostan is an adaptation of the 1839 novel Confessions of a Thug.

We will have to wait until next year Diwali for the release of Thugs Of Hindostan.

FASHION MEETS LUXURY WITH TARUN TAHILIANI

FASHION MEETS LUXURY WITH TARUN TAHILIANI

Beautiful Bridal Attire is the first thing that comes to our mind when we hear about Indian’s most celebrated designer Tarun Tahiliani. Well, here’s the twist, this time, TT has extended his fashion sensibilities for designing Rugs & Carpets. Yes, you heard it right my friend!

Tarun Tahiliani

WHAT’S THIS BUZZ ALL ABOUT: Tarun Tahiliani has partnered with OBEETEE, the premium rugmaker brand to bring a spectacular collection of hand knotted carpets

WHAT CAN WE DO ABOUT IT: This is one key accessory that can add oodles of style to your home and give it a touch of ethnicity & class, if that’s how you like it!

Obeetee carpet

WHEN DID THIS HAPPEN: Tarun unveiled an exclusive collection of handmade carpets. The collection, centered on the ‘Proud to be Indian’ theme, showcases quintessential Indian designs for the first time in the country’s artistic rug heritage.

WHAT MORE CAN I KNOW: The framework of his collection is based upon three distinct design structures — The Antique Frames Collection, The Chikankari Collection, and The Abstract Art Collection. Antique frames collection is based on the borders painted in the most elaborate refinement, on the periphery of most Mughal miniature paintings. Each rug is finished with a distressed look to reflect the patina of that era.

The rugs were recently launched by the designer himself at the majestic Bikaner House.

 EXPERT COMMENTS: While speaking to us, Rudra Chatterjee, Chairman, OBEETEE stated ‘’This is the home jewellery worth every penny. The designs of ‘Proud to be Indian collection’ are quite unique, these are the high end couture rug pieces that have never been woven before. While Tahiliani has designed our maiden India-inspired collection, we are bringing more such illustrious designers of the Indian design circuit like Raghavendra Rathore, Abraham & Thakore, to conceptualise this ambitious project, Proud to be Indian.’’

In Tarun’s words, “This is the first time a serious collection of rugs is coming out that is designed and conceived entirely in India by Indians. The collection is quintessentially Indian and very contemporary from the design point of view”

The limited edition designs will also be taken across the globe, beginning with US in February. A series of exclusive exhibitions and receptions will also be held in honor of each designer in New York, spanning next few months.

OBEETEE has the honour of having its carpets at Rashtrapati Bhawan as well as the Buckingham Palace. One of its rugs at the Rashtrapati Bhawan, among the biggest created by the firm, measures 452 square metres and consists of “billions of intricate knots”.

 The product is priced between Rs5 lakh and Rs12 lakh and will sell from the brand’s boutique at Taj Khazana and Tahiliani’s store in Mehrauli

City of Joy ‘Kolkata’ to have the first ever underwater Metro of India

City of Joy ‘Kolkata’ to have the first ever underwater Metro of India

India is primed to get its first underwater metro in Kolkata, which will pass through a tunnel which will run beneath the river Hooghly. This jaw-dropping invention is all set to amaze India.

The tunnel is being dug 30 metres below the riverbed and is a few metres away from the renowned Howrah Bridge. The first underwater tunnel transportation is complete while the second one is rolling fast and should be ready soon.

This is the first time India will witness such a concept which makes it distinctive. There has been no such mode of transportation built under any river in India, making Kolkata Metro tunnel a high-tech prodigy.

The trains will run rapidly and will be there after every two and a half minutes. It will be connecting two main terminals: Howrah and Sealdah – each of which has a footfall of about 10-12 lakh passengers per day.

The entire 16.6-kilometre stretch of the first tunnel is ready. The second tunnel is yet to be completed. Of the entire length, 10.8 kms is underground and around one kilometre is underwater..

These types of tunnel-boring machines, which we call ‘earth pressure balancing tunnel boring machines’, have been used for the first time in Eastern India,” said Satish Kumar, Managing Director of Kolkata Metro Rail Corporation Ltd.

Since the tunnel is going through many heritage buildings, special care has been taken to ensure no harm shall be caused to them.

The Metro train will run under the sea at a maximum speed of 350 km/hour. The East-West Metro is scheduled to be operational by August 2019.
