Bollywood being always driven by festivals never escapes a chance to showcase their love for festivity. As the festival of lights is approaching, celebrations and glitz and glamour dominate most of the events and conversations
Setting the tone for Diwali, actress Shanthipriya goes the desi way. She dazzled in beautiful kanjivaram silk saree, regal anarkali & gorgeous salwar kameez. Looking absolutely desirable she took the desi route and celebrated in a complete desi avatar.
When asked about her fondness towards the festival, she says “The colors, the light and the euphoria of festivity is something I look forward to. This time again I will light up my house with candles and diyas, however I am not fond of crackers since it causes noise and air pollution and I do not encourage any such thing”

Bhandary of Shiva’s salons, whose deeply inspiring life story aims at reaching out to the new generation and budding entrepreneurs and shows that hard work and the will to learn as the two mantras to achieve success.
The book titled Styling at the Top, The Journey of Shiva Bollywood’s Celebrated Hairstylist, written by Jayashree Shetty is published by Amaryllis, an imprint of Manjul Publishing House and distributed by HarperCollins India.
Despite having a busy schedule of film shoots and back-to-back meetings, Mr. Bachchan took time out to unveil the book at a small function held recently in his office, Janak, in the city and wished all success for the book.

With his awe-inspiring presence he made the evening function held for friends, family and close associates a memorable one.

He was also seen spending some affectionate moments with Rohil and Aaradhya, children of Shivarama or Shiva as he is well known.
Styling at the Top traces Shiva’s amazing life journey, from the rigours and perils of his early years when he acquired the elementary craft, while assisting his uncle in a barber shop in a hilly village in Karnataka to this day when “Shiva’s” has become a brand name to reckon with in India’s metropolis. It is a story that spells of grit and determination. It is a testament to the power of hard work and positivity and proof that where you start does not determine the heights you can reach.
A stint in Qatar in the UAE, where he was exposed to a gamut of hair textures of sportspersons coming from different parts of the world to play there, to later studying hi-fashion in hairstyling from the two renowned institutes, Vidal Sassoon and TONI&GUY, set him up as a hairstylist to groom the world stage.
He came to Mumbai with dreams of making it big in his field and so he did, but not before starting out from a tiny barber shop in suburban Thane in the mid-eighties. Today, he owns a chain of 20 salons and spas, bespoke salons and a line of cosmetic products under his brand name. Shiva’s outlets, spread across the length and breadth of the city, draw an enviable clientele consisting of Bollywood celebrities and corporate achievers. The sky is only the limit when it comes to fulfilling one’s dreams and ambitions. The Marathi and Kannada language editions of Styling at the Top will be available soon. The Gujarati and Hindi translations will follow.

*हे आयटम साँग झाल्यावर हवं तर गोमुत्र शिंपडून घ्या!” कुणी दिला संगीतकार अशोक पत्कींना हा विचित्र सल्ला?*
हजारो जिंगल्स आणि शेकडो नाटक-चित्रपटातील गीतांना संगीतबद्ध करणारे, वयाची अठ्ठ्याहत्तरी ओलांडलेले सुप्रसिद्ध संगीतकार अशोक पत्कींना चांगल्या चालीचा संगीतकार म्हणून संगीतविश्वात ओळखले जाते. गेली चाळीस वर्षे ते एस.डी. बर्मन, शंकर जयकिशन, आर.डी बर्मन अशा दिग्गज संगीतकारांकडे वादक ते स्वतंत्र संगीतकार म्हणून कार्यरत आहेत. अशोक पत्की यांना संगीतविश्वात प्रचंड आदर आहे. पण, अलिकडेच एका सिनेदिग्दर्शकाने त्यांना “ हे आयटम साँग झाल्यावर हवेतर गोमुत्र शिंपडून घ्या, पण हे गाणं करा!” असा विचित्र सल्ला त्यांना दिल्याने पत्कीसाहेब गोंधळून गेले.
त्याचे झाले असे की, ज्येष्ठ छायाचित्रणकार आणि सिनेदिग्दर्शक समीर आठल्ये यांनी त्यांच्या आगामी ‘बकाल’ ह्या भव्यदिव्य ॲक्शनपटासाठी संगीत दिग्दर्शनाची जबाबदारी सोपवली. पण, त्या सिनेमाचा बाज हा तरुणाईशी निगडीत असल्याने सुरुवातीला पत्कीसाहेबांनी त्याला नकार दिला. कारण, पाश्चात्य संगीतप्रकारातील ठेके आणि चित्रविचित्र आवाजांनीयुक्त संगीत निर्माण करणे त्यांच्या शैली पलिकडचे होते. तरीही समीर आठल्ये आणि पत्की यांचे चांगले ऋणानुबंध असल्याने नाही-होय करता करता पत्की साहेब संगीत देण्यास तयार झाले. गीतकार मंदार चोळकर यांच्या गीतरचनेला त्यांनी आवश्यक अशा डीजे स्टाईलला चपखल बसतील अशा चाली नेहमीप्रमाणे हार्मोनियमवर बसवल्या आणि बकाल सिनेमाच्या टीमला ऐकवल्या. पण, दिग्दर्शक समीर आठल्ये सोडून इतर टीमला चाली रुचल्या नाहीत. तसे त्या टीमने नाराज सुरात पत्की यांनी बोलुनही दाखवले. पत्की साहेबांनी सनी ह्या नव्या दमाच्या संगीत संयोजकाच्या साहाय्याने पुन्हा संगीत रचना केली. पण, टीम खुश नव्हती. पत्की साहेबही थोडे नाराज झाले आणि त्यांनी समीर ह्यांना फोन करून ”मला हे जमणार नाही. तू मला दिलेली आगाऊ रक्कम हवं तर व्याजासकट परत देतो” असे समीर आठल्ये यांना सांगितले. पण समीर आठल्ये यांनी “तुम्ही गाणी पूर्ण करा आणि नंतर ऐकवा” असा सल्ला दिला. थोड्याफार बदलांनंतर गाणी तयार झाली. आणि ती टीमला प्रचंड आवडली.
त्यावर समीर आठल्ये ह्यांनी पत्की साहेबांवर आणखी एक बॉम्ब टाकला. तो बॉम्ब साधासुधा नव्हता तर आयटम बॉम्ब होता. “आता एक आयटम साँग करा” हे समीर आठल्ये यांचे वाक्य ऐकताच पत्की साहेब चांगलेच गोंधळले. “अरे, समीर तू माझी चौकट मोडलीस आणि हे ढाक चुक ढाक चुक संगीत करवून घेतलेस, इथवर ठीक होतं. आयटम साँग काय? मी कधी केलंय का? आणि शब्दरचना ऐकून तर मी हे असले आयटम बियटम नंबर अजिबात करणारही नाही. मला ते जमणार नाही. वयाची अठ्ठ्याहत्तरी पार झाली रे!” पत्की साहेबांनी समीर आठल्ये ह्यांना काहीसे रागवून पण विनंतीपूर्वक नकार दिला.. त्यावर समीर आठल्ये ह्यांनी त्यांचे काहीच न ऐकता “चौकट मोडलीच आहे तर आता पूर्णच मोडा. हे गाणे तुम्हीच करायचं, हवं तर नंतर गोमुत्र शिंपडून घ्या!” असा गमतीने सल्ला दिला. समीर आठल्येंच्या हट्टापायी अखेर अशोक पत्कींनी ‘छम छम….बर्फी संत्र्याची’ हे आयटम साँग रचले आणि ते माधुरी करमरकर, कविता राम, जान्हवी अरोरा आणि अमृता दहीवेलकर ह्या चार आघाडीच्या गायिकांकडून गाऊन घेतले. गाणे फक्कड झाल्याबरोबर पत्की साहेबांनाही मनस्वी आनंद झाला. इतकेच नव्हेतर ह्या गाण्याच्या शुटींगच्या वेळी पत्की साहेब स्वत: उपस्थित होते. आणि आयटम साँगवर थिरकणाऱ्या ‘त्या’ तीन ललनांसमवेत त्यांने छायाचित्रेही काढली.
बकाल ह्या चित्रपटाच्या संगीत प्रकाशन सोहळ्यात हा किस्सा अशोक पत्की आणि समीर आठल्ये ह्यांनी सांगितला तेव्हा सभागृहात एकाच हशा पिकला. बकाल हा चित्रपट येत्या ८ नोव्हेंबर रोजी प्रदर्शित होत असून हा मराठीतील पहिला भव्य दिव्य ॲक्शनपट आहे. ह्या चित्रपटात अशोक पत्की यांनी स्वत:ची चाकोरी मोडून तरुणांना रुचेल अशी पाच गाणी संगीतबद्ध केली आहेत. सिद्धार्थ महादेवन, जसराज जोशी, अमेय दाते, हृषिकेश रानडे, महालक्ष्मी अय्यर, आदर्श शिंदे, धनश्री देशपांडे आदी गायकांनी स्वरसाज चढविला आहे. चित्रपटात विदर्भातील मारबत परंपरेवर आधारीत एक गाणे आहे. ते नागपूर स्थित गीतकार सुरेन्द्र मसराम आणि संगीतकार मोरेश्वर निस्ताने यांनी रचले आहे. राजकुमार मेन्डा निर्मित शिव ओम व्हिज्युअल्स प्रा. लि. प्रस्तुत बकाल हा चित्रपट येत्या ८ नोव्हेबर रोजी महाराष्ट्रात सर्वत्र प्रदर्शित होत आहे.
