topics We are happy with the way it’s going and we’ll start shooting soon for the second season That’s all I can say So do we expect an episode on sexual harassment in media after the Tarun Tejpal case What is your opinion on such crimes We don’t reveal the topics of SMJ As far as the case is concernedgoing by the media reportsI would say that I am most disappointed in Tarun for what appears to have been reported I know Tarun but I am really upset At this point my thoughts are with the girl who went through so much and at this pointwe should be supportive of her It’s very tragic for a girl Not only in this casewhere there is harassment or rapeit is something that is extremely traumatic for a person to go through No matter whatI am always in the side of a girl Haven’t you left smoking I leave smoking every year I start smoking exactly a month before the release Since the film’s release is on 20th I’ll continue till December 31 Have you ever considered entering regional cinema like Marathi films I don’t mind doing a Marathi film if I get a good script Also the language should be easy Marathi is something that I have learnt but if you ask me to do a film in Tamil or Telugu I won’t be able to do it I have watched a few Marathi films especially ‘Natrang’ which has excellent music I keep listening to the music in my car What’s your opinion on competitors and contemporaries According to meSalman is the number one star He just bulldozes all the logic I do not believe in competition While I and Salman are big stars and both of us want to grow better with each filmI would say I have nothing but just warmth and love in my heart for Salman I personally believe he is a bigger star than me He has the ability to take a film on his shoulders but I don’t think I have the ability to do so I am fond of him I love him Even RanbirI liked him in ‘Barfi’ a lot I felt the need to learn something from him I love to see good work I am also the audience Good work gives me joyand I don’t mind if it’s not mine Even Shah Rukh I really liked Shah Rukh’s ‘Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge’’Kuch Kuch Hota Hai’ and there is one film I want to see even now – ‘Chak De India’ I think Shah Rukh is an extremely charming actor He always brings a smile on your face Khans have been ruling this industry for more than a decade Do you think this is because Bollywood is star obsessed Bollywood is not star obsessed but audience is In facteven I as an audience am star obsessed too There is nothing wrong with that I am a big fan of AmitjiWaheedaji and Dilip Kumar I have been star struck too Entertainers have a great role to play in the society We make people laugh and emote Our role has always been underestimated Coming to your familyare you a hands-on father I am not a hands-on father I am too self-centered for that I get lost in my work but I am not bad father either I spend a lot of time with Azad I tell him bed-time stories There was time when he used to come with me to the sets every day That was a routine for almost a year He was there in Chicago also with me Will we see Kiran directing you in a commercial film Kiran is right now working on a script but she is very secretive about it I like it that way I would like to act in any of her film unless I don’t like what she is written I have to be honest with my creative instincts Alsoit is important for her to want me Sometimes it may happen that she wouldn’t want me in the film How do you feel about Junaid assisting you in ‘PK’ He is working with Raju and he is very happy being on the set That’s good sign and good starting point He hasn’t told me what he wants to do but for nowhe is fine with it If he comes with a good scriptI don’t mind acting in his film What’s the status on ‘PK’ ‘PK’ is

controversy of fudging BO figures It is very unfortunate But this is not the first time it is happening Sometimes the team feels like fudging figures I personally don’t believe it It is just fooling yourself I want to tell you an important yardstick You should see the weekend figures and compare it with the total collection Like ‘3 idiots’ did Rs 40 crores on the weekend and the total business was Rs 202so the weekend multiplied by 5is the behavior of the film which is very good That shows people have gone again and again to see the film Jo film teen din mein 100 crore karein aur total mein

Bhupen Khakhar’s Waiting for Darshan Related News The title of this Bhupen Khakhar work interestingly also narrates the tale behind its acquisition Suspended on a false wall at Delhi’s Taj Hotel last week Khakhar’s Waiting for Darshan is one of the 26 works of art that will come under the hammer at the Christie’s auction during the Asian Art Week in New York on September 17 Its US-based owner Arani Bose recalls how he “waited” for the Khakhar for months before the veteran called him for a purchase It was around 2001-2002; Bose was already an established gallerist in the US with his banner Bose Pacia Introduced to Khakhar by Atul Dodiya at the former’s studio Bose recalls that upon requesting for a work the Baroda artist said that “all of them were already spoken for” Months later at the San Francisco International Airport the gallerist got a call from the artist “There’s a painting that I’ve just finished Are you still interested” An excited “yes” followed and the canvas was promptly transported to New York With the September auction Bose a practising neurologist and his wife Shumita a software engineer will part with a handful of works from their collection that runs into hundreds “It is not an easy decision to sell but it is for a cause we feel passionate about which is the +91 Foundation that supports discourses between South Asian avant-garde global art world and the general public” says Bose who is also the Director of Stroke Research at Lenox Hill Hospital New York The “visionaries” — he Shumita and their partner Steve Pacia — have more than a couple of firsts to their credit: having opened the first gallery in New York focusing exclusively on modern and contemporary art from South Asia in 1994 they also organised the first US exhibitions of FN Souza Manjit Bawa and MF Husain followed by Subodh Gupta Jitish Kallat and LN Tallur They were also the first South Asian-focused gallery to be accepted into several major international fairs including the the first national presence of India in the century-long history of the Venice Biennale in 2005 “We were sitting in Venice in 2003 and realised that India has never had a pavilion there we set out to rectify that” says Bose After the 2009 meltdown though he shut his gallery to open the +91 Foundation This is the second successive year that the couple are putting works from their collection on

Photo by Kamleshwar Singh) Related News At the end of Saurashtra’s Ranji season opener Ravindra Jadeja had in his possession two worn out cricket balls with 5/45 written on one and 6/27 scribbled on the other in bright flowing cursive writing After the hugs and high-fives of the win over Tripura in Rajkot Saurashtra manager Arjun Rana had studiously decorated the two match balls with the Man of the Match’s flattering figures and presented them to Jadeja In return Rana wanted a promise: “You should have six such balls by the time we finish our first three matches” In a couple of weeks Jadeja had the set of six The four new additions to his collection too had the familiar writing These latter Jadeja figures from the matches against Jharkhand and Hyderabad — 6/71 7/55 6/75 7/60 — were shining on the worn-out pink leather Within days of Jadeja taking 37 wickets from 3 Ranji Trophy matches chairman of national selectors Sandeep Patil picked him for the Tests against South Africa For years now — fairly or unfairly – the domestic circuit tends to take the Rajkot bounty (wickets scalped or runs made there) with a pinch of salt Cheteshwar Pujara had to build a mountain of runs on the much-maligned Rajkot track and climb on top of it to get noticed Then he had to score more runs to get a national call Jadeja’s own triple hundreds at home have been received with cynical smirks Ironically this season’s extraordinary wicket-haul on the spin-friendly track and in matches lasting 2 to 3 days is being treated as one of Sir Jadeja’s outlandish claims Share This Article Related Article Patil was asked about the weight of Jadeja’s 37 wickets at the press conference after the Test selection He was non-committal saying they knew Jadeja’s strength The recent show was a reminder just a confirmation of his form But how did a left-arm spinner who wasn’t even picked for India A teams become part of the playing XI at Mohali on Thursday Ask Saurashtra coach Shitanshu Kotak about Jadeja’s forte and he declares: “He is the best left-arm spinner in India on a spin-friendly track” Horses for courses Picking Jadeja was the first hint of the kind of spin-friendly pitches the India-South Africa Test series would be played on A team with a strong batting and stronger pace attack was at the door step; it was a no-brainer India needed their spinners to tackle them Jadeja fits the bill His struggles abroad on hard pitches and a greenish tinge are as famous as his series-deciding spells at home In the four Tests against the touring Australians in 2013 he picked up 24 wickets at an average of 1745 The reason Jadeja subsequently became irrelevant was because of India’s long overseas assignments Eighteen wickets from seven Tests that India played in South Africa New Zealand and England exposed him From a regular in all formats he was a mere first-class player a second-class citizen in a highly hierarchical cricketing world However Jadeja isn’t one to allow setbacks to question his skills He neither went on an PR overdrive to stay in the news nor did he rush to coaches to change his game But he did decide to take his mind away from cricket He went to live at his farm outside Jamnagar His friends talk about the daily schedule that their ‘Jaddu’ diligently followed after playing the ODI series in Bangladesh in June “He would get up late and spend the entire afternoon with his horses By evening his friends would come to meet him All of them would cook dinner on the fire place outdoors and talk about old times till late at night” he says Jadeja has often spoken about his passion for horses and the tranquility he experiences when he spends time with them On the one kilometer-long riding lap around his farm Jadeja gallopped away his afternoons He doesn’t use a saddle or a stirrup He trusts the animal They would never throw him off their back he believes “Even in the middle of the night if Jadeja goes to the stable he is sure he wouldn’t be kicked The trust is mutual The horses know him well” says a regular at the farm But the whispers in his ears were unabated: “Be in circulation be seen or else everyone will forget you” Happy with his horses Jadeja would hum and haw deep inside believing that only wickets and runs would see him return to the Indian team “These are simple and proud people the Jadejas Their ancestors were warriors with honour Very early in life his father told him that if playing for India means begging and pleasing others he’d rather start doing farming” says one of Jadeja’s old friend An impact player Jadeja was too good a cricketer to end up as a farmer Nor was he going to enjoy lazing with friends and riding horses for too long His Saurashtra team-mates say Jadeja was eager to do well but was not bitter He would tell them that the reason he was dropped was because he didn’t do well “Jadeja never blamed his ouster on some faction or bias as most people do He had a big impact on us as it helped us understand how fickle sport can be” says a senior player Kotak who has seen Jadeja grow as a cricketer predicts he will have a big impact on the series Jadeja’s low trajectory and fast pace doesn’t give batsmen the time to manage singles off him and keep the scoreboard ticking There are a few wicket-taking balls that rarely fail him on tracks that help spinners “He can spin the glazed new ball and at the same time make it skid into the right-hander Another difficult ball that he has mastered is the one that straightens Even on a turning track he can bowl the straighter ball That’s a skill Batsmen play for turn and get beaten” he says Bowling long spells is another Jadeja trait that captains and coaches appreciate “In the three Ranji games that we played at Rajkot the only time Jadeja’s bowling spell was broken was when there was a drinks break or lunch or tea In one game he bowled 27 overs at a stretch He has powerful fingers that help him bowl with intensity for long periods of time He doesn’t tire” says Kotak He reminds that what has gone unnoticed about Jadeja’s performance this season are his runs on spin-friendly tracks He scored a couple of 90s on the same track which are labelled as unplayable “He has quick hands sharp foot-work and great bat-speed this helps him to do well on turning tracks In Tests he doesn’t need to think like a No7 or No8 he should think of himself as the middle-order batsman that he is when he plays for Saurashtra He has the potential to do well in Tests” he insists On Monday he was back with the boys as the Indian Test team had its first net session From spending the afternoon riding horses at his farm he was galloping on the Mohali turf wearing India colours The plan to switch off take a break and avoid making those desperate courtesy calls to the decision makers has worked For he knows whenever India decides to roll out the dusty and brown carpet they would summon a bowler with a trophy cabinet full of faded balls with shinning figures on it Number plate 105 is Ravindra Jadeja’s staggering bowling average in the four Ranji matches that he has played for Saurashtra this season 38 In those matches the left-arm spinner has taken an astonishing 38 wickets seven more than the next best bowler Akshay Wakhare of Vidarbha who has played one extra match and bowled 125 more overs For all the latest Sports News download
