Babloo Bachelor Made a Good Start at the Box Office

Mumbai (Maharashtra) [India], October 25:  After the reopening of cinema halls in Maharashtra on 22nd October 2021, Babloo Bachelor was the first film released. The rom-com family entertainer is cracking up the audience and the critics. The film is doing prominent business in Delhi and UP circuit along with Hindi speaking market. Babloo bachelor is a must-needed film after so long. The audiences were away from the theatres and were only clinging to the digital media for entertainment.

Babloo bachelor is a comedy genre film in which Sharman Joshi is playing the protagonist. The story of the film is based on UP, where a well-to-do family had always dreamt of their son’s wedding with great pomp and show. Babloo (Sharman Joshi) met a few girls for his wedding but didn’t get the right one. Then he met Avantika (Pooja Chopra), who was already engaged in another relationship and is not a virgin. After requesting Pooja, Babloo rejects the proposal. In one wedding, he got to meet Swati (Tejashri Pradhan), with whom he fell in love, and both agreed to the marriage. But the twist comes when on the wedding day, Tejasri ran away from the wedding and left a letter for him. She had always wanted to be an actor, and now she had got a chance of being a lead actor in a reality show in Mumbai. Sharman tries everything to reach his would-be wife. He even goes to Mumbai. There, by chance, he again bumped into Pooja Chopra, the creative head of that channel. He told her everything. She agrees to help him, and when finally Tejashri comes back, Sharman falls in love with Pooja Chopra after looking at her initiative and efforts to bring Tejashri back. It will be interesting to watch with whom Sharman, aka Babloo, will marry now?

The songs of the film are composed by Jeet Ganguly and lyrics by Kumaar and Rashmi Virag. The romantic songs   Kasam and Aye meri Zindagi sung by Arijit and Papon respectively are very well appreciated by the young audience on the radio and digital media. Another song Tum ho sung by Arijit and composed by Indradeep Das Gupta, is also soothing. The comedy-emotional film is for every age group. The one-liners of the film are in everyone’s mouth.

Under the banner of Rafat films and produced by Ajay Rajwani, directed by Agnidev Chatterjee. Babloo Bachelor stars Sharman Joshi,  Pooja Chopra, Tejashri Pradhan, along with Rajesh Sharma and Asrani in the important role and released on 22nd October 2021.

The World to Witness the Launch of the Lightest and Fastest Car Ever, an Electric Hypercar, Ekonk

Mumbai (Maharashtra) [India], October 25: Vazirani Automotive, one of India’s innovative startups, is all set to launch, one of a kind expression of art, Ekonk. Ekonk in the Indian scriptures signifies the beginning of the divine light. The big bang.

“For us, Ekonk signifies our real beginning, where for the first time design and innovation comes together. It’s our first vehicle that’s ‘alive’.”-Chunky Vazirani

After working for automotive giants like Rolls-Royce and Jaguar, Chunky Vazirani moved to Mumbai and founded Vaziraniin 2015. The vision was to create the next generation electric vehicles and technology that would put India on the world map of extreme vehicles.

Having launched India’s first hypercar concept, ‘Shul’ at the Goodwood Festival in the U.K, he earned the honor of creating the first HyperCar of India, and to supersede his expectations, Chunky Vazirani gives to the world a new single-seater, spaceship looking car that claims to be not just the fastest car ever built in India but one of the fastest accelerating cars in the world. The car also tests the company’s unique battery solution that replaces the century-old complex liquid cooling tech.

The problem with electric cars is that the batteries get hot, and the solutions today are overtly complex and unsustainable. Nobody has created a bespoke cooling solution for batteries until now.

Biomimicry (studying how animals and humans use breathing to regulate their body temperatures) combined with some ancient Indian manufacturing techniques resulted in the invention of the DiCo technology. DiCo enables the batteries to cool directly with the air, as opposed to needing liquid cooling that most manufacturers, including Tesla, use to keep its batteries cool. Vazirani’s new technology makes EVs lighter, faster, safer, and cost-effective. Most importantly, it also increases the range of EVs.

It is designed to be one of the most fluid cars aerodynamically, having one of the lowest drag coefficients for vehicles of its kind. That’s majorly why the rear wheels of the car are covered. It sets itself apart with its innovative battery efficiency and entire carbon fibre body that keeps the weight down. Weighing 738kgs, it is the lightest electric vehicle ever made. And with a power output of 722hp, it almost achieves the golden; one is to one, power to weight ratio.

The vehicle is developed end-to-end by Vazirani Automotive and has been tested at the recently inaugurated Naxtrax high-speed facility near Indore to achieve a top speed of 309KMPH. Acceleration from 0-100kmph is a mere 2.54 seconds.

The character of the car is as mechanical and pure as an electric car can be. This car has no electronic driver aids; it’s just the electric motors and the wheels—a direct pure electric connection. The technology and learnings from Ekonk will be seen in the production version of the Shul, which the brand is gearing for. After which, Ekonk might also see limited production for customers to purchase.

RM Sports Set To Enter Retail Space with 26 Outlets across India

New Delhi (India), October 23: RM Sports Pvt. Ltd., headed by Founder-Managing Director Rajeev Mishra, is all set to redefine the sports good space in the Indian market with 26 retail outlets planned across India. The company plans to cash in on the newly-found attraction for a fitter lifestyle among young Indians through these new outlets, which would sell top-end sports goods to discerning and demanding customers. RM Sports seems to have created a golden opportunity for it with these retail outlets, which would not only increase their customer footfall but will also help the company mark its pan-India presence.

Mishra, along with CEO Shraddha Tiwari, had spent days looking at an uncertain future, owing to what was happening everywhere for the past year. However, both of them were eventually inspired by innovation and improvement happening in the world of global sports. As a result, RM Sports decided to learn from the best in the business and change their business strategy. In the sporting with innovation and improvement of its sporting goods. The RM Sports Management took the decision to go beyond the ordinary and aim for an extraordinary approach to business. The path that they picked was to innovate what they were already good at – manufacturing new-age sporting goods so that when customers return to their shops, they get the best products to use

In this line of thinking, RM Sports has introduced some high-quality, reasonably priced sporting goods like these –

  1. Sportswear made with high quality, technically sound fabric, which absorbs moisture & sweat better while keeping it breathable and weightless. These clothes keep you cool, especially during intense HIIT workouts or a bout of cricket/football/hockey on the ground.
  2. Moving on from synthetic plastic material called PVC, which is not harmful just for you but also for the environment, RM Sports is going to launch cricket gear made with PU or Plastazote. It is a type of foam that is flexible and tough at the same time. Gear made out of Plastazote offers superior performance at a lighter weight.
  3. RM Sports is also coming out with its own retail outlets, a kind of offline shop where sports enthusiasts can come and browse personally before placing their orders. For starters, the company is going to open these outlets in metro cities like Mumbai and NCR while preparations are afoot for expanding their offline presence to other major cities in due time.

With such innovative products at disposal, it is no wonder that RM Sports is set to enter the retail space in India with 26 outlets under its “Retail Programme”, aimed at joining forces with distributors, independent shop owners, and dealers in sports equipment.

Such innovation, uniqueness and research is often not commonly seen being put into manufacturing sports goods. Therefore, this attempt by RM Sports to innovate itself is nothing less than inspirational.
