The show will be aired on BIG MAGIC channel

every Monday to Friday at 5:00 pm

 

Gaurav Sharma, previously seen in ‘Diya Aur Baati Hum’ has been approached for the remake of popular Pakistani sitcom Nadaaniyaan. Having bought the rights, BIG MAGIC will be re-producing the show for the Indian audiences.

With each having a different perspective in life, the story revolves around Naman Verma aka Nandu, his wife Chandini and brother Pushkar Verma aka Pappu. With a self-proclaimed writer, a push-over wife and a clumsy younger brother, one can expect nothing but a laugh riot from this family!

Gaurav Sharma is will play one of the lead characters Pushkar as the serial gears up to go on-air in September. Pappu is a fun loving, happy-go-lucky person who is a wannabe actor. He’s a true opportunist. He does wrong things and if he gets caught he simply blames it on someone else!

Says Gaurav, “I love comedy and I have enjoyed watching the original sitcom. It’s great that Big Magic is remaking the series for the Indian audiences. The character of Pappu in this show is a complete dramebaaz and I think that’s what the audiences will like watching. After reading the script myself, I felt so connected with the character that I now think like Pappu and behave the way he would! As an actor I have always preferred to take up challenging roles and making people laugh is extremely difficult. The audiences are in for a treat and will get to see a completely different side of me!

 

Tune in to Nadaaniyaan starting 9th  September every Monday – Friday at 5:00 pm only on BIG MAGIC!

Kajol joins Help A Child Reach 5 campaign to promote hand washing

Kajol joins Help A Child Reach 5 campaign to promote hand washing

Mumbai, August 2013 – World-famous film actor and mother,  Kajol has today urged people to join her in supporting the cause of hand washing with the Lifebuoy’s ‘Help A Child Reach 5’ campaign which aims to eradicate diarrhoea, one village at a time. The campaign has adopted Thesgora, a village in Madhya Pradesh with one of the highest rates of diarrhoea to inculcate hand washing habits.

To help more children reach the age of 5, Kajol is urging people to donate to hand washing programmes. The donations can be made online at u-tube and the proceeds from the donations will go to Population Services International (PSI), a leading health organization for implementing hand washing programmes.

For every donation made, Lifebuoy will match the donation amount for its hand washing programmes. Lifebuoy will also donate 1 rupee to hand washing programmes every time the ‘Help a Child Reach 5’ video is shared online.

The campaign was launched with the release of a film of Kajol speaking about the importance of hand washing to prevent child deaths and urging people to donate to the cause and share Lifebuoy’s award-winning ‘Help a Child Reach 5’ video.

Kajol said, “As a mother, I was moved to tears while watching the film. It is simply not acceptable that a child dies from preventable diseases. I am proud to be supporting Lifebuoy’s ‘Help a Child Reach 5’ campaign. I would urge everyone to donate to the cause of spreading hand washing awareness. The simple act of hand washing can save the lives of so many children.”

Worldwide, 1 child dies from diarrhoea or pneumonia every 15 seconds. That’s two million children each year. Hand washing with soap at key occasions can reduce diarrhoea by 45% and pneumonia by 23%. Hand washing with soap is critical in India where over 6 lakh children under 5 die each year due to diarrhoea and pneumonia.

Samir Singh, Lifebuoy Global Brand Vice President, said, “Lifebuoy has changed the hand washing behaviour of 130 million people so far. With Kajol’s support we hope to share the film with millions of people across India, spreading the message of hand washing with soap to more people thus helping save the lives of children.”

Lifebuoy’s programmes teach school children, new mothers, and the community the practice of hand washing with soap at key occasions. This intervention also aims to contribute to United Nations Millennium Development Goal 4 (MDG 4) – to reduce the mortality of children under five by two-thirds by 2015.

About Lifebuoy

As the world’s leading health soap, Lifebuoy aims to make a difference by creating accessible hygiene products (soap) and promoting healthy hygiene habits.  With this in mind, Lifebuoy aims to change the hand washing behaviour of one billion people by 2015. Since 2010, with the launch of the Unilever Sustainable Living Plan, Lifebuoy has changed the handwashing behaviours of 130 million people globally and 47 million people in India.

Lifebuoy has been synonymous with health and hygiene since it first landed on Indian shores in 1895. It has been spreading the message of health and hygiene for over 100 years, and over two thirds of India’s households use Lifebuoy at least once a year. The famous Lifebuoy jingle “Tandurusti ki rakshakarta hai Lifebuoy, Lifebuoy hai jahantandurusti hai wahan” is the health anthem of India. Lifebuoy’s Swasthya Chetna was the single largest rural health and hygiene educational programme ever undertaken in India.

About the Unilever Sustainable Living Plan

The Unilever Sustainable Living Plan (USLP) sets out to decouple our growth from our environmental impact, while at the same time increasing our positive social impact.

The Unilever Sustainable Living Plan, launched in November 2010, set three key goals to be achieved by 2020:

August 28, 2013, Delhi: Toyota Kirloskar Motor (TKM) today launched India’s first ever locally manufactured hybrid – The All New Camry Hybrid. The vehicle will be manufactured at a separate assembly line within TKM’s second plant located in Bidadi, near Bangalore, in Karnataka.  Globally India is the 9th country to manufacture Toyota hybrid vehicles.

The petrol Camry, the legendary cornerstone of  Toyota brand, was first introduced in 2002, in India. In 2012, TKM began locally manufacturing the petrol Camry. Like its petrol counterpart, the New Camry hybrid is based on the 7th generation of the Camry.

Aptly named Hybrid which means ‘fusion’, the Camry hybrid combines a newly developed hybrid exclusive 2.5L Beltless petrol engine with an electric motor. The vehicle runs on Hybrid Synergy Drive, which intelligently senses when to switch between the two power sources – petrol engine and electric motor. It controls the engine and motor output for optimum fuel efficiency.  The battery supplies electricity to the motor, enhancing the driving power. The engine and motor together give an impressive total system power output of 205 PS.

In addition to powering the vehicle, the motor is activated as a generator to convert the moving vehicle’s kinetic energy into electricity. The generated electricity charges the battery. This process, usually happens at the time of decelerating and braking and is called regenerative braking.

The vehicle gives an exceptional mileage of 19.16 kmpl*, the best in its segment. A testimony to its hybrid technology the car produces just 122.8 gm of CO2 emissions per km of driving, which is far lesser than the conventional vehicles of similar engine size.  The Camry Hybrid comes with an Electronically Controlled Continuous Variable Transmission (E-CVT), which provides enhanced driving performance, with reduced fuel consumption and lower NVH.

The All New Camry Hybrid has been styled befitting a prestige sedan and is fully loaded with high end luxury features. In addition to the features available in the petrol Camry, the Camry Hybrid comes with more than 35 enhancements. The ride experience is heightened by an extremely quiet ride, the vehicle is almost soundless, especially when you start it. The high density dashboard silencer material, acoustic windshield glass and the E-CVT further brings down the engine noise and avoids sounds from outside, entering the car. Like its petrol counterpart, the Camry Hybrid offers best-in-class cabin space, derived from the impressively designed wide body.

The Camry Hybrid also introduces first in segment luxury features  

–      Power recline rear seat

–      Rear armrest with controls for power recline rear seats, power sunshade for rear windshield, audio system and air conditioning

–  3 Zone Air conditioning facilitates individual temperature controls for the driver, front passenger and rear passenger, enabling perfect comfort for everyone

The All New Camry Hybrid is priced at 29,75,000/- (ex showroom Delhi) and  is available in four vibrant colours – grey metallic, white pearl crystal shine  ,silver metallic and  attitude black. 

Speaking about the introduction of The All New Camry Hybrid in India Mr. Hiroshi Nakagawa, Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, TKM said “The Camry Hybrid is India’s first locally manufactured Hybrid vehicle. Manufacturing the Camry hybrid locally, in India, marks a very important milestone in the history of TKM and the Indian automobile industry. It is our endeavor to offer the best vehicles with most advanced technology to India. Toyota is a pioneer in Hybrid technology and thus we were very keen to manufacture the all New Camry Hybrid in India, as well. This is in line with Toyota’s global philosophy to encourage the use of hybrid vehicles across the globe, for a greener tomorrow. Manufacturing Camry hybrid locally will be yet another step towards Toyota’s global commitment.”

Mr. Sandeep Singh, Deputy Managing Director and Chief Operating Officer, Marketing and Commercial, TKM added “Toyota Camry, the globally renowned flagship brand of Toyota is further strengthened in India with the introduction of All New Camry Hybrid. Toyota hybrid has a history of more than 15 years to its credit and over 5 million cars across the globe.

The New Camry petrol introduced last year has seen wide acceptance by our customers. To further reiterate Toyota’s commitment, we are extremely delighted to bring in the New Camry with hybrid technology to the Indian market. Our main objective behind introducing this product in India is to further generate awareness on hybrid technology amongst Indian customers.

The New Camry Hybrid is an ideal combination of a luxury sedan and hybrid technology. It is targeted at sophisticated and classy individuals who have accomplished a significant journey of achievement in their lives.  The new Camry Hybrid will definitely distinguish our customers as responsible citizens. We are sure that the customers will be delighted by the All New Camry Hybrid, which has been launched at a very competitive price”.
