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.

Special Exhibition on St Francis of Assisi at The Cathedral of the Most Holy Rosary in Kolkata

Special Exhibition on St Francis of Assisi at The Cathedral of the Most Holy Rosary in Kolkata

17 January 2022, Kolkata: One of the oldest cathedrals of Kolkata, The Cathedral of the Most Holy Rosary, Burrabazar, founded on 1799 will install reliefs of St. Francis of Assisi which was put up as an exhibition during Xmas eve and inaugurated by Chief Minister of West Bengal Mamata Banerjee in the presence of Archbishop of Kolkata, Thomas D’Souza, Pro-Vicar of The Cathedral of the Most Holy Rosary, the Police Commissioner, Mr Soumen Mitra, Industrialist, Promode Kumar Agarwal, Dr Ralf Heckner, Swiss Ambassador in India, Mr Umesh Chowdhary, Swiss Honorary Consul in Kolkata, Mr Subrata Ganguly of creative design firm Church Art and other dignitaries.

The pictorial displays have been conceptualised and created by Kolkata-based creative design firm Church Art and depicts the life of St. Francis of Assisi – the Patron Saint of Environment and the originator of the tradition of cribs. The reliefs would be installed in the Cathedral premises to inspire and motivate people to love and protect Mother Earth.

“This year we observed a Green Christmas in Kolkata to spread environmental awareness and practice in daily life the conservation of nature and its resources,” said Fr Franklin Menezes, Pro-Vicar of The Cathedral of the Most Holy Rosary, Burrabazar, Kolkata.

A crib set, often described as a `nativity scene’, was also on display at the Cathedral. A crib, is a depiction of the birth of Jesus as described in the gospels of Matthew and Luke. The origin of the Christmas Crib or Manger or Nativity scene is often first ascribed to Saint Francis of Assisi, who, in 1223 AD, celebrated the `Feast of the Nativity’ in a new way that led to a new devotional practice popular even today.

Nativity scenes exhibit figures representing the infant Jesus, his mother Mary, and Joseph. Other characters from the nativity story such as shepherds, the Magi, and angels may be displayed near the manger. Distinctive nativity scenes and traditions have been created around the world and are displayed during the Christmas season in churches, homes, shopping malls, and other venues, and occasionally on public places and in public buildings.

The Vatican has displayed a scene in St. Peter’s Square near its Christmas tree since 1982 and the Pope has for many years blessed the mangers of children assembled in St. Peter’s Square for a special ceremony. In July 2015, the first ever crib set depicting Jesus’ birth from India, designed by Kolkata-based creative firm Church Art, was added to the International Nativity Museum of Bethlehem’s collection of 223 nativity representations from over 93 countries. Church Art has installed various art work across India and abroad based on Church and Biblical themes in line with the canon law.

The International Nativity Museum in Bethlehem, a UNESCO Heritage Site, is currently located close to the Church of Bethlehem which is considered to be the spot where Jesus was born. Local lore passed down from ancient times holds that the three travellers or Magi who were guided by a star had passed through this path where the International Nativity Museum now stands.

History tells us that St. Francis of Assisi was inspired by his visit to the Holy Land in 1219 where he had been shown Jesus’ traditional birthplace. It was in 1223 that the first crèche was celebrated in the woods of Greccio near Assisi, on Christmas Eve. St. Francis’ idea of bringing Bethlehem into one’s own town spread quickly all over the Christian world, and soon after the death of Francis in 1226 there were Christmas cribs in churches and homes. The home crib became popular in Catholic Europe after 1600, owing, it is said, to the efforts of the Capuchins.

संगीत व कला के शहर ग्वालियर में वीपी सिंह राजावत आखिर क्यों उठा रहे हैं ‘फिल्मसिटी’ बनाने की मांग?

Posted by on Dec 4, 2021 in Latest News | 0 comments

संगीत व कला के शहर ग्वालियर में वीपी सिंह राजावत आखिर क्यों उठा रहे हैं ‘फिल्मसिटी’ बनाने की मांग?

फिल्मों का स्तर और शौक दिन भर दिन बढ़ता ही चला जा रहा है. आज फिल्म इंडस्ट्री में आधुनिकता और टेक्नोलॉजी का भरपूर चलन है. फिल्म वेब सीरीज या सीरियलों की शूटिंग भी आजकल आउटडोर होने लगी l वीडियो फ़िल्म मेकर अपनी लोकेशन बाहरी ठिकानों पर ढूंढते हैं, ताकि सीन को और भी रोमांचक बनाया जा सके l देश में समय-समय पर कई फिल्मसिटी का निर्माण हुआ, साउथ में रामोजी फिल्मसिटी, मुंबई में मुंबई फिल्मसिटी जैसे स्थानों पर अक्सर फिल्मों की शूटिंग होती हैं l

जल्द ही जेवर में इंटरनेशनल फ़िल्मसिटी भी बनने जा रही है l भारत सरकार का ऐलान है कि इस फिल्म सिटी से फिल्मों के कैरियर में उफान आएगा l

ऐसे में मध्यप्रदेश में एक भी फिल्म सिटी ना होने के कारण वीपी सिंह राजावत ने यह मांग रखी है – कि मध्य प्रदेश के प्रतिभाशाली बच्चों के लिए, संगीत सम्राट तानसेन के अस्तित्व को बचाने के लिए, शहर की प्रतिष्ठा और गरिमा को कायम रखने के लिए, मध्य प्रदेश में सबसे सुंदर शहर ग्वालियर में फिल्मसिटी का होना अत्यंत आवश्यक है l

ग्वालियर में ‘संगीत सम्राट तानसेन फिल्मसिटी’ ना केवल फिल्मों के प्रति रुचि पैदा करेगा, बल्कि आजकल के नए वेब सीरीज निर्माताओं को भी अपनी तरफ खींचेगा l

वेब सीरीज के युग में, आज मध्य प्रदेश की लोकेशन, खासकर ग्वालियर और उसके आसपास की लोकेशन कई फिल्म निर्माताओं के निशाने पर है l

ऐसे में ग्वालियर में एक फिल्म सिटी का बनना, सरकार व जनता दोनों के लिए अत्यंत महत्वपूर्ण है l

इसी उपलक्ष में, ‘वीपी सिंह राजावत’ बॉलीवुड के कई फिल्म निर्माताओं के साथ विचार विमर्श में व्यस्त हैं l एक डॉक्यूमेंट्री फिल्म के माध्यम से सरकार को ज्ञापन भी देने को भी आतुर हैं l

वीपी सिंह राजावत ने अपने प्रोडक्शन – मां पीतांबरा फिल्म प्रोडक्शन कंपनी द्वारा बॉलीवुड के निर्देशकों से एक डॉक्यूमेंट्री फिल्म भी तैयार कराई है l

  

जल्द ही डॉक्यूमेंट्री फिल्म ‘ संगीत सम्राट तानसेन फिल्मसिटी’ के द्वारा उनकी सरकार से अपील है -कि फिल्मी कैरियर में मध्य प्रदेश से उठ रहे युवाओं के सपनों में सरकार हौसलों की पंख दे व कला के सबसे बड़े शहर में फ़िल्मसिटी का प्रस्ताव रखे
