The event, a brainchild of noted fitness expert Baqar Nasser who runs an indoor cycling studio in Mumbai and other parts of the country has been conducting the event for the past six years in the city. Mr.Yash Chopra, actor Neil Nitin Mukesh, Rohit Roy, the team Strings (Maqsud, Billal and Faisal Kapadia), Dr. Indu Shahani (Sheriff of Mumbai) and B.A.Desai (Former Minister) will be the guests of honor for the event.

Indoor Cycling, as propagated by Nasser, a former National cycling champion-turned-instructor is different from the usual gym workout and lets a person burn his calories in an interesting and creative manner.

Actor Neil Nitin Mukesh, who endorses the brand TOPSPIN, was also present at the event to boost the morale of the participants.

Prashant Shirsat, CMD-3rd Rock Entertainment, had a very interesting take on today’s event, as he says that today’s India is a health conscious India. And amazingly its not only the youths but also the senior citizens who are aware & conscious of being healthy & are working towards the same. ‘Spinnathon 2011’ is a totally different & an innovative event, Spinnathon is what i think will interest everyone who hears about it.

TOPSPIN founder & owner Baqar is a three-time All India University Cycling Champion and holder of 11 National titles, is visibly upbeat about the event. “Spinnathon to me is an event which promotes good health in an environment which is very addictive. I hope more and more people get addicted to this form of exercise”. “Indoor cycling is one of the most effective and energetic forms of exercise that has achieved success at an international level. In the coming years, Spinnathon would be an international event and will be held at many locations in India and abroad”.

Bigg Boss ‘double Vaat’ thadkaa launch

At the launch of Bigg Boss yesterday at Mehboob Studio, Salman Khan and Sanjay Dutt were in their true elements. Although Salman was extempore in hosting the event, one found Sanju baba lost at times with his lines. Both the stars surely knew how to pull Colors and Bigg Boss staff Ashwini’s leg on stage.

The event gave an insight into Bigg Boss’s new theme titled Double Vaat, primarily hinting at the 2 stars who will be hosting the show. Obviously the hidden agenda being that one expects more dhamaal this time to upsurge the TRPs from their earlier seasons. Sallu and Sanju did re-iterate that all the news about their so-called fight was media driven. They also poked fun at film director David Dhawan whom they would like to be in the Bigg Boss house in the last few weeks. Primarily coz they want him to lose some weight and the Bigg Boss contestant are low on their food allowance in the last stages of the show.

No info on the contestants was divulged but yes they did confess that there are bigger names involved this time. Salman will definitely rock the show since he is a true performer. However looking at Sanju’s poor performance, it is doubtful if he can garner more moolah with other shows after this.

Looking forward to the new season of Bigg Boss. Spice sells for sure and this show has made overnight stars of all the previous contestants in the earlier seasons.
