Rohhit Verma showcased his all new club wear apparel line incorporating exorbitantly magnificent detailing which accentuate the femininity of women with tier gowns, drapes and indo-western outfits to be the perfect choice for a night out. However for the men, Rohhit opts for Jackets and waist coats as the perfect pick for the night.
After the grand success of Marigold, Shilpa launches another sister brand – Aabhasa- Effortlessly Bold. Aabhasa was born of the need to have an Indian alternative of international quality in watches that matches in boldness the avant- garde clientele of India.

The World Before Her shifts between the fascinating worlds of the Miss India pageant and a Hindu fundamentalist camp for girls. In one, Ruhi Singh is a small-town girl competing in Bombay to win the Miss India pageant—her ticket to stardom. In the other India, Prachi Trivedi is a young, militant leader at a camp for girls run by the Durga Vahini, the women’s wing of the VHP. Here she preaches violent resistance to Western culture, Christianity, and Islam.
Moving between these divergent realities, the film creates a critical, provocative portrait of the world’s largest democracy at a key transitional moment—and of two women who hope to shape its future. The film also features former Miss India Pooja Chopra, who was a near victim of female infanticide.
The film THE WORLD BEFORE HER premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival in 2012 where it won the Best Documentary Award. It has screened at more than 125 International film festivals and has won 19 awards. It was recently one of 8 films selected as part of Film Forward, an initiative of the Sundance Institute and 4 Federal US agencies including the President’s Committee on The Arts and Humanities.
Nisha along with her Toronto based partners Mariam Zaidi and Farzana Haque have raised more than 50,000 Canadian dollars through a Kickstarter campaign toward the India campaign of the film.
As a part of the India campaign, Nisha will be taking the film, across the country. The goal is to increase awareness about women’s rights issues in India especially female foeticide and infanticide –notably Punjab, Maharashtra, Gujarat, Rajasthan, Delhi and Haryana which have some of the worst boy to girl ratios in the country. Pahuja will be accompanied by human rights activists.

Nisha started off as a researcher for some of Canada’s brightest documentary talents and learned filmmaking under their mentorship. She co-wrote and directed Diamond Road, a three part series on the global diamond trade for ZDF/Arte, TVO, Discovery Times and History Television.
Shot all over the world, Diamond Road received the 2008 Gemini award for best documentary series. The feature version of Diamond Road premiered at IDFA in 2007 and was one of three films selected as part of the prestigious OXFAM- Novib evenings. Pahuja’s Bollywood Bound, about a quartet of Indo-Canadians who travel to India to make it big in Bollywood, screened at numerous film festivals and was widely telecast around the world. It was the closing night film at Hot Docs 2001 and was nominated for a Gemini in 2002. The World Before Her is her third film.

You’ve seen them dance, you’ve seen them pirouette, you’ve seen them leap and perform aerial stunts. But don’t think you’ve seen it all just yet! With a brand new season of Jhalak Dilkhhla Jaa all set to make its appearance on COLORS on 7th June at 9PM, the stakes have been upped and the challenge is to showcase something ‘alag’ this time. So how exactly is this season going to be different? This season the audiences will be introduced to some unusual and unheard of dance forms like Capoeira, Zouk, Bolero and many more from all the corners of the world.
Back for the fourth season in a row, Madhuri Dixit-Nene said, “This season, it is not only a challenge for the contestants, but also for us as judges. I have been training in Latin dance forms and am looking forward to see some newer dance forms from the contestants as well.” Karan Johar added, “Dance may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but this year, I have something special to give away to those contestants who wow us with unique and commendable performances – a specially designed pair of dancing shoes. I am hoping for the best dance maestros to emerge this season!” Remo D’souza concluded, “Every season of this iconic property has been an enriching experience not only for the viewers but also for every member who has been a part of the show. With such an interesting mix of contestants and choreographers, it’s a no brainer to say that this season of Jhalak is here to rock.”
