“SANITATION LEVELS ARE LOW, BUT ARE NOW IMPROVING,” SAYS BHUMI PEDNEKAR ON MUTHOOT BLUE ‘DHUN BADAL KE TOH DEKHO WITH VIDYA BALAN’ ON 92.7 BIG FM


“SANITATION LEVELS ARE LOW, BUT ARE NOW IMPROVING,” SAYS BHUMI PEDNEKAR ON MUTHOOT BLUE ‘DHUN BADAL KE TOH DEKHO WITH VIDYA BALAN’ ON 92.7 BIG FM

“Cleanliness is close to godliness” is a phrase etched in memory as it’s a saying that we learned as children. Seeing the adverse effects of humanity on the environment, one asks the burning question if we are truly clean or hygienic? Hygiene is a simple basic right that every human being is entitled to.  But are we as citizens doing our bit to eradicate unhygienic conditions in the country? Bollywood celebrity and RJ Vidya Balan is acing her new role as an RJ on the show Muthoot Blue ‘Dhun Badal Ke Toh Dekho with Vidya Balan’ on 92.7 BIG FM. And she is using the platform to its optimum level to spread awareness about social topics that aren’t usually discussed. This time around, she speaks to Bhumi Pednekar about sanitation and its importance.

When asked if hygiene and sanitation conditions in our country should change and what the research for the movie TOILET depicted, Bhumi Pednekar said, “It definitely needs to be looked into. We are a developing country and one where you can’t blame only the government. We are also battling a lot of other things, like the mindset of the people.  Bad sanitation spreads so many diseases. While shooting for TOILET, I came across statistics that shocked me. There is a UN report that says that a great number of rapes happen when women go out to defecate. Even if you build a bathroom and there is no water, or a proper waste disposal outlet, then there is no point. It’s a vicious cycle that is difficult to break. Development from the grass root level is required. Sanitation levels are low but it’s improving now and that’s progress.”

On the need for clean toilets, Vidya Balan said, “Sanitation is a social issue that we have been dealing with for years. Do we not want cleanliness? About 70% of population lives in rural areas where due to the lack of resources and awareness hygiene is ignored. But what’s our excuse in the cities? Is it just the government official’s responsibility to keep the city clean? 60% of the population is defecating in open. 15 lakh children who are younger than 5 years old are dying due to diarrhea. We need to start making the masses aware of these extremely unhygienic conditions. Let’s join hands towards a cleaner country and a cleaner life. I hope that everyone gets the basic rights of roti, kapde aur makan with a clean toilet.”

Catch this engaging conversation with Vidya Balan as she spreads the word about sanitation and its importance along with Bhumi Pednekar on this Wednesday- Thursday episode of show ‘Dhun Badal Ke Toh Dekho with Vidya Balan’ on 92.7 BIG FM.

“FOR 6 MONTHS I WAS ONLY GIVING SCREEN TESTS,” SAYS VIDYA BALAN ON MUTHOOT BLUE ‘DHUN BADAL KE TOH DEKHO WITH VIDYA BALAN ON 92.7 BIG FM.

“FOR 6 MONTHS I WAS ONLY GIVING SCREEN TESTS,” SAYS VIDYA BALAN ON MUTHOOT BLUE ‘DHUN BADAL KE TOH DEKHO WITH VIDYA BALAN ON 92.7 BIG FM.


The iconic red bindi, the loosely tied hair, and a shy, beautiful smile, right from her very first shot of the 2005-starrer Parineeta to her latest hit, Tumhari Sullu, Vidya Balan has grown on the audience like never imagined. Having portrayed the role of an RJ in movies, the actress sure is blooming in her new avatar in real life on 92.7 BIG FM’s Muthoot Blue ‘Dhun Badal Ke Toh Dekho with Vidya Balan’. Using the platform to its optimum level, she speaks about issues that largely affect society. On a Friday special episode Mumbai Ka Sabse Bada Struggler, RJ Abhilash speaks to Vidya about her Bollywood debut Parineeta and the highs and lows she has faced in her career so far.

Speaking about her struggle before she landed her Bollywood debut Vidya Balan said, “The director, Pradeep Sarkar went to Vidhu Vinod Chopra, the producer of the film, saying that he wants to make this film. Vinod Chopra asked him who he will cast in Parineeta. Dada recommended my name. Vinod Chopra said I’m not bidding 10 Crores on this girl. And that’s not all, a very well established actress was interested in this movie. Pradeep Sarkar asked Vinod Chopra for me to give a screen test and give me a chance. For 6 months, I was only giving screen tests. By the end of it I was tired and almost done and Vinod Pradhan, who was supposed to be the cinematographer of this film, saw that I was almost giving up. He was the one who encouraged me to be my happy self and give a shot. And the shot that I gave that day turned out to be the shot that was going to be used in the opening credits.”

Reminiscing about the amazing music in the movie she said, “It’s timeless, it’s melodious; it’s something that makes your heart happy.  Shantanu Moitra gets full marks. I think Dada and Shantanu worked beautifully with each other.  And how could I not talk about Swanand Kirkire’s lyrics. Every frame of the movie was like a painting. Dada sketches himself; he does the storyboarding, himself. The way he has portrayed the movie, it’s as if the movie is imprinted in the audience’s minds. People still tell me that Parineeta is a movie that one can watch over and over again and full credit goes to Pradeep Sarkar.”

“NO ONE SAYS I AM LIKE MY FATHER,” SAYS BOBBY DEOL ON MUTHOOT BLUE ‘DHUN BADAL KE TOH DEKHO WITH VIDYA BALAN’ ON 92.7 BIG FM




~JIMMY SHERGILL AND RENUKA SHAHANE ALSO OPEN UP ABOUT THE EDUCATION SYSTEM AND PARENTAL PRESSURE ON CHILDREN~

“NO ONE SAYS I AM LIKE MY FATHER,” SAYS BOBBY DEOL ON MUTHOOT BLUE ‘DHUN BADAL KE TOH DEKHO WITH VIDYA BALAN’ ON 92.7 BIG FM



“NO ONE SAYS I AM LIKE MY FATHER,” SAYS BOBBY DEOL ON MUTHOOT BLUE ‘DHUN BADAL KE TOH DEKHO WITH VIDYA BALAN’ ON 92.7 BIG FM

As a child, the sound of the school bell going off at the end of the day was simply music to the ears. Recess, homework, games, detention, remarks, and stars from teachers have been one of the most beautiful parts of our childhood. But everything isn’t always fun and games for children. Parental pressure, competitiveness, comparisons between one child and the other are the harsh realities that children today have to face. Actress-turned -radio jockey Vidya Balan is doing wonders with her new show Muthoot Blue ‘Dhun Badal Ke Toh Dekho with Vidya Balan’ on 92.7 Big FM bringing to light prevalent issues faced by people in today’s society. This time around, the actress stirs up a conversation about children and talks with B-town celebrities like Jimmy Shergill, Renuka Shahane and Bobby Deol.

When asked about pressurizing his son, Jimmy Shergill said, “I think in your tension to come first in your next race, you are often left behind in the race of life. Because all you are thinking is that this is my next race, which I have to ace, but you are not thinking ahead. Every person should be allowed to discover themselves and should not be pressured into a race. I have told my son that the day you don’t feel like studying I’ll take you out of school. Come to me with a goal. The day you realize that your goal has nothing to do with your studies, I’ll take you out of school.”

“NO ONE SAYS I AM LIKE MY FATHER,” SAYS BOBBY DEOL ON MUTHOOT BLUE ‘DHUN BADAL KE TOH DEKHO WITH VIDYA BALAN’ ON 92.7 BIG FM

When asked if children are being pressurized in schools, Renuka Shahane said, “Yes, our education system wants toppers in schools. Teachers pay special attention to kids who excel academically or in sports. There are so many children who don’t shine in either of these. Every child should feel wanted in a school and in life. They should be praised for what they are good at. There has to be a holistic outlook. If you don’t value children, how do you expect them to value the education system? All the achievers, if you see, carve a different way for themselves and that’s why they are achievers.”

On asked if he was pressurized to fit in his father’s shoes, Bobby Deol said, “I never thought of it. I wish I had. It is not pressuring, it’s the public’s way of looking at you and they’ll keep comparing you. Luckily, no one says that I act like my father, I am different. I never try to be different; I never try to be like him. Every individual is different, but sometimes people just keep comparing you to others and spoil your career. This didn’t happen to me because if it had, I wouldn’t be in the industry for so many years.”

VIDYA BALAN’S UPCOMING MOVIE ‘BEGUM JAAN’ TO BE SCREENED ACROSS 900 SCREENS IN INDIA



•Critically Acclaimed Bengali Movie Rajkahini’s Hindi Adaptation ‘Begum Jaan’ Starring Vidya Balan To Be Distributed By NH Studioz

VIDYA BALAN’S UPCOMING MOVIE ‘BEGUM JAAN’ TO BE SCREENED ACROSS 900 SCREENS IN INDIA


8th March 2017; Mumbai: Ahead of Women’s Day, NH Studioz, an initiative of Narendra Hirawat and Co announced acquiring the theatrical distribution rights for Vidya Balan’s upcoming movie Begum Jaan. Narendra Hirawat and Co is a pioneer in releasing and distribution of Bollywood movies for decades. Begum Jaan is scheduled for release on 14th April and is an action-drama directed by Sriijt Mukherji where Vidya Balan plays the role of a brothel’s madam in the late independence period of 1947. The movie is an adaptation of critically acclaimed Bengali movie Rajkahini (Tale of the kings) which was also directed by Srijit Mukherji and released in June 2015.

“The mindset of the Indian audience has changed over the past few years. People are now more open to applaud stories with female leads as the central character in the film. We truly believe in movies with such gripping stories with female leads in the foreground and also understand the audiences that the movie caters to. It is about identifying the right audience for a particular movie and taking strategic steps in releasing the film. In the recent past, we have successfully distributed women centric movies like Pink and Dear Zindagi. Taking the content of the movie to the right audience is crucial as it plays a very essential role in the overall business of a movie”, said Mr. Shreyans Hirawat, Managing Director of NH Studioz.

The original movie Rajkahani is set in the grim history of partition around a border between the two nations that runs through a brothel housing eleven women. The movie follows the erection of the Radcliff line as the boundary between the newly formed nations of India and Pakistan. The brothel run by Begum Jaan is situated right between the districts of Debiganj and Haldibari with the former being placed in East Pakistan and the latter remaining a part of India. The partition line runs right through the middle of Begum Jaan’s brothel. Eventually, Begum Jaan is asked to evacuate the place with her women but she refuses. What follows is the dark political situation of the era and the innumerable attempts made to evict Begum Jaan from the brothel. The women of the brothel put up a brave fight against the system to save their home which means the world to them. “We found the storyline of the movie very enthralling and with Vidya Balan playing the lead, this will be one of the finest movie this year. We are planning the release of the movie in theatres very carefully and the film will be screened across 900 screens in India”, adds Mr. Hirawat.

Salaam Bombay Foundation’s theatrical adaptation of Chalti Ka Naam Gaadi wins hearts



A packed house and a lot of laughter
Salaam Bombay Foundation’s theatrical adaptation of Chalti Ka Naam Gaadi wins hearts

Mumbai, November 4 2016: On Friday, a packed house waited with bated breath at the Y.B. Chavan Auditorium to watch an eccentric trio perform antics on the stage and entertain them. Most of them had watched the trio on celluloid and laughed till tears rolled down their eyes. This time, they watched expectantly to see how they performed on stage. And they were not disappointed at all.


Each member of the audience laughed and how as the stellar cast of NGO Salaam Bombay Foundation’s Chalti Ka Naam Gaadi lit the stage on fire with their riveting performances at the première night of the play. Six decades after the movie Chalti Ka Naam Gaadi starring the maverick Ganguly brothers Kishore, Ashok and Anoop tickled the funny bone of cinema goers; Salaam Bombay Foundation presented it in a new avatar – as a stage production and a modern-day version of the sprightly film. The play -- a musical edition of the film – recreated its original magic by weaving together the best of art while adding a contemporary twist for new age viewers.

The guest of honor for the occasion was renowned Bollywood actor Vidya Balan.

Like the film, the spotlight of the play is the three brothers and their frolics that have retained the popularity of the film even today.Yet, Chalti Ka Naam Gaadi’s stage debut goes beyond simply bringing back the runaway hit. Salaam Bombay Foundation’s production features the talent of the young graduate students of its Repertory Theatre. These are children who have studied at the Salaam Bombay Academy of Arts – the flagship wing of the organisation that works with children from Mumbai’s deprived slums.

On Friday, each member of the cast dominated the stage with their hard-hitting performance, wit and humour leaving the audiences in splits. What made it all the exhilarating was the fact that the situations and the ensuing encounters were fantastically handled by the actors. All the children are students of municipal schools and residents of the city’s slums.

The Salaam Bombay Academy of Performing Arts works with municipal schools, identifies children who display a unique talent and then presents them with an opportunity to develop it. The objective is to address the lack of vocational skills among these children by providing them with world-class training in dance, music and theatre. The children who were part of the play are now graduates of the Academy but continue to be associated with Salaam Bombay Foundation in professional theatre opportunities.

Another milestone of Chalti Ka Naam Gaadi is that it has some of the biggest names from Bollywood associated with it. While popular singers and youth icons Shaan and Neeti Mohan have lent their voices to its joyful numbers, the play is directed by National School of Drama alumn Chittranjan Tripathi, scripted by National Award winner Ashok Mishra with music score by Sangeet Natak Akademi award winner Amod Bhatt.

Talking about the gala success of the premiere night, Rajashree Kadam, VP, Operations, Salaam Bombay Foundation said, “We and our children are feeling on top of the world because Chalti Ka Naam Gaadi, the Salaam Bombay Foundation way, went beyond our expectations. The audiences can’t stop raving about the performances and the play has left them spellbound. This unique fundraising initiative will give the youngsters from our Academy the chance to showcase their talent and stage skills under the guidance of stalwarts from theatre as well as cinema.”

Meanwhile, the splendid special effects used in the musical are already winning acclaim thanks to their lavish scale and contemporary reflection. Explains Rajashree, “The idea was to present the golden classic on stage through a combination of audio and video visuals and stage act – a lot of which has perhaps not been explored effectively in Indian theatre yet. Looking at the audiences’ reaction, I think we have been very successful in our endeavour.”

The grand premier night was attended by the crème-de-la-crème of theatre, cinema, music and art who cheered for the artistes as they rocked the stage. If you too want to laugh your guts out and be treated to some ace performances, don't forget to catch the next shows of Salaam Bombay Foundation’s Chalti Ka Naam Gaadi.

When and where:

November 5, 6: Y.B Chavan Centre, Nariman Point

November 11, 12, 13: Rangsharda Auditorium, Bandra

 ‘Our aim,’ she said, ‘is to boost educational opportunities for people with disabilities by helping to build teacher capacity to work with children with special needs in main stream classrooms.’

‘Follow-up visits to Indian schools will include La Trobe students and researchers from education, speech pathology and social work. They will use a team-based approach to solving problems and building teacher capacity, which will be helpful for both Australia and India.

‘In addition, our students will gain first-hand experience of Indian society, culture, architecture, language, religion and art.’

Close links with India

 Acting Vice-Chancellor Professor Jane Long said it was an exciting project that extended the horizons and experiences for La Trobe students, while contributing to an important educational goal of India’s education system.


‘We are extremely pleased to launch this scheme,’ she said, ‘as La Trobe has close and long-standing connections with India, reaching back to 1968 when India’s then Prime Minister, Indira Gandhi, visited the Melbourne Campus.


‘Almost 5,600 of our graduates were born in India,’ she added.

Two years ago the University inaugurated the Shri Amitabh Bachchan Scholarship for Indian students to study at La Trobe. Named after legendary Indian film actor Amitabh Bachchan, it is valued at up to A$200,000 for four years.

Professor Long said: ‘We are the only university in Australia – apart from the ANU – to teach Hindi and a founding member of the Australia India Institute. Our library houses one of the largest Indian collections in Australia.

‘We also have an arrangement for our sports management and sports journalism students to undertake internships with the leading Indian Premier League (IPL) Cricket team, Kings XI Punjab which was also funded by the New Colombo Plan in 2016,’ she said.

La Trobe University has supported the Indian Film Festival of Melbourne (IFFM) since 2011. This year’s festival is a sponsor of India’s ‘Educate the Educators’ project. Vidya Balan is in Melbourne as a guest of the Festival.
