BMC in association with Kala Ghoda Arts Festival invites filmmakers & musicians to participate in the UNESCO Creative Cities Network Music Video Project that captures the soul of Mumbai

BMC in association with Kala Ghoda Arts Festival invites filmmakers & musicians to participate in the UNESCO Creative Cities Network Music Video Project that captures the soul of Mumbai

Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) in association with Kala Ghoda Association which manages the Kala Ghoda Arts Festival (KGAF) presents a unique opportunity for  professional and budding musicians and filmmakers who live and breathe the soul of Mumbai. You can showcase your creativity in the  Music Video Project (MVP) that captures the soul of the metro. Musicians are invited to share an original music track created on the theme “Creativity- Path to Equality” before July 10, 2022. Selected tracks will be shared among filmmakers who will create a music video in 15 days. The Kick Off is on July 29 and the last date to submit the music video is July 29, 2022.

To the uninitiated, The Music Video Project (MVP) is a high-energy event in Mumbai, India’s film hub, a unique collaboration between two of the most creative  arts, music and film.  The project will be  conceptualised and executed by 48HFP India.

MVP hopes to promote culture and heritage and involve the youth, as well as creative professionals and students in filmmaking, to make sure no one gets left behind.

The MVP supports the UNESCO’s objective to reduce inequalities in society, which is at the core of the UN 2030 Agenda, and supports the UNESCO Creative Cities Network’s (UCCN) theme Creativity, Path to Equality, Capturing The Spirit of Mumbai.

The UNESCO Creative Cities Network (UCCN) started in 2004 and currently comprises 246 cities. The idea of the UCCN is to encourage greater partnerships between UNESCO and between creative cities around the world that have worked to establish a strong reputation and foothold in the creative sectors.

Mumbai was designated as a UNESCO Creative City for Film in 2019. UCCN found a perfect partner to implement its objectives – the city’s civic body, Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) with its close connection with the people of Mumbai. Through its events and activities, the BMC hopes to create close interactions with the youth, students and creative professionals from the media and film community and reach out further to the people and masses with films created.

Further, the city’s cultural landscape is dominated by one of the premier organisations, the Kala Ghoda Association which organises the Kala Ghoda Arts Festival (KGAF) every year since 1999. With its giant presence and huge following, the KGAF brings a mass appeal and reach to the BMC for its cultural and art initiatives.

The Music Video Project has been conceived and executed by the 48 Hour Film Project India. 48HFP India has a large talent pool of filmmakers across the country, with rich experience in celebrating film-based contests, branded content and innovations in the film-based events.

Wobble Creative & Content is their partner to curate the music from highly successful musicians, music bands and artistes to give an international audience a taste of Mumbai’s sounds and vibe.

The winning videos will be awarded and screened at a high-profile event in Mumbai, and selected videos will also be screened in July 2022 at Santos, Brazil at UCCN’s upcoming event and many more international avenues..

The Project begins with the musicians. Music bands and artistes have to capture the spirit of Mumbai through their lyrics, style, compositions and feel and win a chance for talented filmmakers to bring Mumbai alive in an exclusive music video. The MVP is a unique opportunity for musicians to be seen on a world stage.

The next phase is the Kick Off day, July 29 when selected tracks will be announced and registered filmmakers will be allotted a track song. They have 15 days to shoot and submit a video by August 15, 2022 that shows their take on the Mumbai they want to show the world. There are no genre requirements; musicians and filmmakers can choose any genre that they feel does justice to their talent and the theme. The sounds, the culture, the noise that, to some, feels like music, all can be used as a part of the track that shows Mumbai as a diverse city that carves out a path to equality through creativity!

Together we are  poised to make the MVP a grand success.  We expect a high calibre of storytelling, with talented cast and s Mumbai city in a never-seen-before avatar.

‘गोल्ड डस्ट रिकॉर्ड्स म्यूज़िक’ के अनूठे वीडियो सॉन्ग ‘भाऊ का सिक्का’ में दिखेगा हिंदुस्तानी भाऊ का जलवा

‘गोल्ड डस्ट रिकॉर्ड्स म्यूज़िक’  के अनूठे वीडियो सॉन्ग ‘भाऊ का सिक्का’ में दिखेगा हिंदुस्तानी भाऊ का जलवा

मुम्बई (12 मई, 2022): हिंदुस्तानी भाऊ का सोशल मीडिया पर ख़ूब सिक्का चलता है. तरह-तरह के संदेश देनेवाले और देशभक्ति के जज़्बे से सराबोर हिंदुस्तानी भाऊ के वीडियोज़ लोगों द्वारा ख़ूब पसंद किये जाते हैं, मगर अब जल्द ही लोगों को उनका एक अलग ही अंदाज़ देखने को मिलेगा. हिंदुस्तानी भाऊ जल्द ही ‘भाऊ का सिक्का’ नामक वीडियो सॉन्ग में एक अलग ही अंदाज़ में नज़र आएंगे.

‘भाऊ का सिक्का’ नामक गाने को प्रोड्यूस करने का ज़िम्मा पीवी हांडा और शैली अरोड़ा हांडा ने उठाया है. इस गाने के अलावा दोनों साझा रूप से एक पंजाबी गाने को भी प्रोड्यूस कर रहे हैं जिसका टाइटल है ‘जट शद हो गया’. दोनों ही गानों का निर्माण ‘गोल्ड डस्ट रिकॉर्ड्स म्यूज़िक’ लेबल के अंतर्गत किया जा रहा है.

उल्लेखनीय है कि ‘भाऊ का सिक्का’ और ‘जट शद हो गया’ इन दोनों ही गानों की शूटिंग इन दिनों एक साथ मुम्बई के एक ही स्टूडियो यानि किंग्समैन स्टूडियो में चल रही है जो जुहू इलाके में पीवीआर सिनेमा के सामने स्थित है.

‘भाऊ का सिक्का’ में जहां हिंदुस्तानी भाऊ उर्फ़ विकास फाटक का जलवा देखने को मिलेगा, वहीं ‘जट शद हो गया’ में एक्टर आकाश जग्गा और अभिनेत्री इडिन रोज़ मुख्य भूमिकाओं में दिखाई देंगे. उल्लेखनीय है कि आकाश जग्गा मशहूर टीवी सीरियल ‘ससुराल सिमर का’ में एक अहम किरदार निभा चुके हैं तो वहीं इडिन रोज़ भी टीवी की दुनिया का एक जाना-माना नाम हैं. ग़ौरतलब है कि इन दोनों वीडियो सॉन्ग का निर्देशन आर. राजा कर रहे हैं.

‘भाऊ का सिक्का’ गाने की शूटिंग के मौके पर हिंदुस्तानी भाऊ ने मीडिया से रू-ब-रू होते हुए कहा, “मैं निर्माता पीवी हांडा और शैली अरोड़ा हांडा का बेहद शुक्रगुज़ार हूं कि उन्होंने मुझ जैसे शख्स को इस गाने में लेने के बारे में सोचा. नये लोगों और नई प्रतिभाओं को मौका देना आज की सबसे बड़ी ज़रूरत है, वर्ना तमाम प्रतिभाशाली लोग संघर्ष करते-करते दम तोड़ देते हैं और उन्हें कोई पूछता तक नहीं है. मुझे उम्मीद है कि सोशल मीडिया में मेरे वीडियोज़ से हटकर दिखनेवाला मेरा ये नया अंदाज़ लोगों को ख़ूब पसंद आएगा.”

 

इस मौके पर निर्माता हैली अरोड़ा हांडा ने कहा, “हम नई-नई प्रतिभाओं को मौका देने और उन्हें आगे बढ़ाने में यकीन रखते हैं. इन दोनों गाने के माध्यम से हमने यही कोशिश की है और आगे भी इसी परंपरा को आगे बढ़ाते हुए मधुर और अर्थपूर्ण  गाने लोगों को पेश करते रहेंगे.”

जाने-माने गीतकार व संगीतकार  प्रवीण भारद्वाज द्वारा लिखे‌ गाने ‘भाऊ का सिक्का’ के बोल हिंदुस्तानी भाऊ के उदार चरित्र को ध्यान में रखकर लिखे गये हैं. गाने को डायरेक्ट कर रहे आर. राजा ने‌ इस गाने की ख़ासियत के बारे में कहा, “हिंदुस्तानी भाऊ से जब मैं पहली दफ़ा मिलने गया तो मैंने‌ ख़ुद अपनी आंखों से देखा कि कैसे वो अपने आसपास ज़रूरतमंद लोगों की मदद करने में हमेशा आगे रहते हैं. इस गाने में भी हमने उनके इसी निस्वार्थ भाव से लोगों की मदद करनेवाले स्वभाव को चित्रित करने की कोशिश की है. असल ज़िंदगी में भाऊ एक-दूसरे से नफ़रत करनेवालों को प्यार करना सिखाते हैं और इस गाने के ज़रिए भी वो लोगों को अमन का पैगाम देते नज़र आएंगे.”

MX Player’s Bhaukaal 2 receives an unprecedented response – Lead actor Mohit Raina pays tribute to officers from India’s Best Police Station – Sadar Bazaar Red Fort and across India in a first-of-its-kind virtual initiative

MX Player’s Bhaukaal 2 receives an unprecedented response – Lead actor Mohit Raina pays tribute to officers from India’s Best Police Station – Sadar Bazaar  Red Fort and across India in a first-of-its-kind virtual initiative

MX Player’s recently launched series Bhaukaal 2, which is inspired by the life of IPS officer Navniet Sekera, has taken the nation by storm with its gripping narrative and splendid performances. It’s successful opening has not only won over audiences but in a unique initiative, MX Player has associated with the Delhi Police from the historic Sadar Bazaar Police Station, one of the oldest police stations in India that was established in Delhi in 1861 and was also assessed as the best police station in the country in 2021. Lead actor, Mohit Raina, who enacts the role of the real-life Singham – Navniet Sekera, salutes the tireless efforts of the men in khaki who have been selflessly serving the nation, especially during this global pandemic.

Bhaukaal 2’s portrayal of real-life crime incidents and the struggles and sacrifices of a police officer has made it one of the best shows in the crime-thriller genre. MX Player has recently delivered several record-breaking shows across genres like Aashram, Matsya Kaand, High, Samantar and Campus Diaries that dominate the Indian and global OTT platforms and this series has already ranked amongst the top three shows on the platform. This is a testament to the brands commitment of understanding the entertainment needs and bringing quality content to its viewers.

We rarely acknowledge the sacrifices that police officers make for us. Whether it’s working planned shifts or being called into duty for emergency responses, they do it all so humbly and place their duty above all else for the safety of others and to work towards ensuring a crime free city where its citizens feel secure. As an ode to the officers in the line of duty and as an industry first initiative, MX Player organized an engaging and interactive Virtual Meet & Greet event with Mohit Raina and 75 officers across ranks from the Sadar Bazaar Police Station in New Delhi and others who joined in from various cities across India.

Mohit Raina, who was been lauded for his role as S.S.P Naveen Sikhera, spoke about his character in the series as he enacted the efforts of the police to control the lawlessness in Muzaffarnagar in 2003. He bowled over the officers with his humble tribute that spoke about understanding the sacrifice and efforts that the officers make to keep us and the country safe.

This unique and momentous event was also streamed LIVE for numerous other officers and media across nearly 20 cities in India and it was a truly memorable day for the heroes of our nation as they received the much-deserved respect and honor on behalf of the entire country.

The event was also attended by esteemed members of the Delhi Police such as Commissioner of Delhi Police – Shri Rakesh Asthana, Special Commissioner of Police Law and Order (Zone 1) – Shri Deependra Pathak, Additional Commissioner of Police (Central Range) Madam Suman Goyal, Deputy Commissioner of Police – North – Shri Sagar Singh Kalsi, Additional DCP North – Ms Anita Roy, Additional DCP South West – Mr Amit Goyal, Additional DCP (2) North – Mr Chandra Kumar, ACP Sadar Bazaar – Ms Pragya Anand and the innumerable brave hearts of Delhi Police, across ranks.

Speaking about this event that honors the IPS brave hearts, Mohit Raina said, “I am proud to be a part of one of the finest and most successful crime series on the web. I’m truly overwhelmed by the love that the audiences are showering on us. Being given an opportunity to work closely with IPS officer Navniet Sekera for this role, I realised the amount of effort that goes behind the scenes to keep us and our country safe. Through this first of a kind virtual event, we wanted to thank our officers for their selfless services and acknowledge how they work relentlessly for the nation and the sacrifices they make in the line of duty. They’re the true superheroes of the country and the entire team of Bhaukaal salutes their bravery.”

Speaking on the same, Shri Sagar Singh Kalsi – DCP North of Delhi Police said, “We feel truly honoured on receiving such respect and warmth. We’re delighted to co-host the launch at PS Sadar Bazaar, one of the oldest PS of India that was judged the Best Police Station in the country. This virtual launch is ideally located to honour our real heroes who toil on the ground. We are associating with MX Player for this event and the interaction with actor Mohit Raina who has so convincingly portrayed the role of one of our very own true soldiers has been rewarding. Shows like Bhaukaal go a long way in inspiring the youth to join the police forces while highlighting the hard work we put in along the line of duty. We stay committed to work for the welfare of the public, putting our service before ourselves always.”

Bhaukaal 2 is a 10-episodic-web-series inspired by the life of IPS officer Navniet Sekera that sees Mohit Raina as the heroic S.S.P Naveen Sikhera, who puts service before self and brings alive the story of Muzaffarnagar, UP and its saga of lawlessness in 2003. Produced by Applause Entertainment in association with Baweja Studios Production, MX Original Series Bhaukaal 2 is directed by Jatin Wagle and also stars Bidita Bag, Siddhanth Kapoor, Pradeep Nagar, Gulki Joshi, Ajay Chaudhary, Rashmi Rajput and Late Major Bikramjeet Kanwarpal in pivotal roles.
