Dev Benegal in conversation with Jeet Thayil
August 1, 2013: Films and books have always shared a special relationship. A good story is what makes for a good film. Thursday evening witnessed that relationship coming alive. The Mumbai captured by Jeet Thayil in his book Narcopolis was relived…some old stories discussed and some new ones created, the Dev Benegal way!

This was followed by a jam session with Suman Sridhar, singer-songwriter and who forms one half of the lyrical/post-pop duo Sridhar/Thayil.
Talking about his journey after winning this prestigious award, Jeet said, “It’s important to talk about what a cash award of fifty thousand dollars means to a writer. This is a good chunk of cash, which frees the writer from anxiety for a while, for long enough that he can get on with the next one. It is a gift of time, possibly the most important gift there is.”
Talking about the reach of the prize, Jeet said: “I think it’s significant that the first three winners of the DSC Prize are Pakistani, Sri Lankan and Indian, in other words, a wide representation of the region. Also, each is a debut novel by a writer who is attempting to stretch the idea of South Asian writing. I’m very happy to be in this excellent list.”

The DSC Prize is a unique and prominent award, recognizing the literary works of authors across the globe writing on South Asia, transcending the origin or ethnicity of the author.

There is a growing interest in South Asian literature which is evident from the increased number of entries the DSC Prize has received for the 2014 edition.
While talking about the success of the event, Manhad Narula of DSC Limited said, “As we celebrate four glorious years of the DSC Prize, I am happy to see the conversation on South Asian writing expanding through the various events associated with the prize.

An all new Nargis Fakhri in Viacom Motion Pictures,JA Entertainment and Rising Sun Film’s Madras Cafe.
While casting for the role of an international war journalist ,the makers of Madras Cafe were looking for an actress with global appeal ,not to mention, the spunk required to pull off the role and they looked no further than Nargis Fahkri, who shot to fame with her debut in Imtiaz Ali’s Rockstar.
While the actress is popularly spoken about for her unique look and screen presence,director Shoojit Sircar promises to introduce to audiences a new facet of the actress ,that is sure to take them by surprise.
Says Shoojit Sircar, “I was looking for somebody to fit the look of a foreign war correspondent — an Indian girl who works abroad and has an accent. I have already worked with her in a commercial much before Rockstar . Imtiaz Ali took her in his film after watching that commercial. When I met her and told her about this role, she was sceptical and asked me whether I was sure of casting her. I think half the work is done if the casting is right.”

Presented by Viacom 18 Motion Pictures and JA Entertainment and produced by Rising Sun Films and JA Entertainment , Madras Cafe ,directed by Shoojit Sircar is scheduled to release 23rd August 2013.

SRK wants to buy Comedy Nights with Kapil!
When superstar Shah Rukh Khan visited the sets of COLORS’ hugely popular Comedy Nights with Kapil for the second time in a span of three weeks – a first in the history of India television, Khan offered to buy Kapil’s show from the ace comedian himself!
Khan is said to be such a huge fan of the show that now he wants to make it his own, and was seen offering Sharma a sum of Rs, 10,000 in return! Shocked at his proposal, Sharma remarked jokingly, “Sirf Rs 10,000! Meri bua toh akeli Rs 8,000 ki hai and Dadi Rs 7,000! Mera naukar aur biwi aapko complimentary de doonga!” After much thinking, SRK was seen accepting Kapil’s scheme but said he wasn’t buying the show without Siddhuji! According to Khan and Sharma, without Siddhuji’s constant sher-o-shayari, the show would feel incomplete! The whole deal was finalized over a ping-pong table, where SRK and Kapil were seen to be involved in funny match of ping-pong.
The King Khan’s love for Kapil did not go unnoticed. When asked by an audience member who Khan’s favorite artist in the industry was, he took aback Kapil and the audience by remarking “Abhi toh mera favorite Kapil hi hai!” And just when Sharma was basking in this new-found revelation of Khan, Shah Rukh threw a googly at him – “Arey, main toh Kapil Dev ki baat kar raha tha yaar!”, he was heard saying much to the amusement of everyone on set!
Well, SRK visiting his show twice, and that too in a span of 21 days, we think Kapil has really become King Khan’s favorite!

Makers of ‘The Light: Swami Vivekananda’ to organize a special screening for Gujarat Chief Minister Hon. Shri Narendra Modi in Ahmedabad on 6th Aug
The film pays tribute to Swami Vivekananda
Year 2013 marks 150th Birth Anniversary of Swami Vivekananda and on this occasion, to pay tribute to the legendary monk, Director Utpal Sinha is all set to bring a film titled ‘The Light: Swami Vivekananda’ that takes the audience on a journey of transition of young Narendra Nath Datta to world renowned monk Swami Vivekananda.
To start the campaign for the film slated to release on 23rd August, the makers have organized a special screening for Gujarat’s Chief Minister Hon Shri. Narendra Modi in Ahmedabad on 6th Aug.
“Mr. Modi has often spoken about the influence of Swami Vivekananda and his ideologies in his life. He has also been associated with Swami Vivekananda’s Ramkrishna Mission in many ways. In recent past one has seen him participating in various Yuva sammelans and Yatras organized by the missionaries on regular basis and hence it does not come as a surprise that he has agreed to come for a special screening” says a source.
Says producer J. Misra, “Swami Vivekananda’s influence in Mr. Modi’s life can be clearly seen through his communications. We thought why not request Mr. Modi’s office and see if we can get him to come and see the film. To our surprise he readily agreed to take out time from his busy schedule and not only did he agree to come himself but also invited his entire team to come and see the life of Swamiji through the film. We couldn’t have asked for a better start for sure. We are grateful to Mr. Modi for this gesture.”
Produced by TriColour Productions Pvt Ltd., the film has Deep Bhattacharya playing Swami Vivekananda who is making his debut and was finalized after auditioning many faces across India.
