Karan Butani’s Association with Tigmanshu Dhulia Made Him Confident about Making Phamous!








Making your debut film can be a nerve-racking process, however, when debutant director Karan Lalit Butani set out to make his first film – Phamous, a crime drama set in the rugged ravines of Chambal, he was quite confident about it. Reason being, his schooling with National Award-winning director – Tigmanshu Dhulia.
Karan, before turning a full-time director was assisting Tigmanshu Dhulia and has learnt a lot from him, which helped him with his debut project.




“What I've learnt from him cannot be measured. I believe I went to two different film schools, the first one was Whistling Woods and the second one was Tigmanshu Dhulia’s school. He is definitely an institution in his own right. Right from how to handle your actors to ensure that the drama never drops, I learnt many important filmmaking techniques from him,” reveals Karan.

He further adds, “My schooling with Tigmanshu made me confident about making this film. When you work with him, you automatically learn a lot.”

Starring Jimmy Sheirgill, Kay, Pankaj Tripathi, Jackie Shroff, Shriya Saran and Mahie Gill, Phamous revolves around a power-struggle between four principal characters and invites you on an odyssey that hits your heart and face at the same time.

Phamous is a Karan Lalit Butani film, presented by Raj Khatri Filmz and produced by Raj Khatri, Vidisha Productions and Amitabh Chandra. Phamous is scheduled to releases on June 1, 2018.

Ways to Make Summer Holidays Interesting for Kids!


Moms get scary & restless at mere thought of approaching summer holidays of kids, whether she is a working mom or stay at home. Both dread at the thought of a long summer vacation of kids. Children are overjoyed & go berserk.


The children plan a long To-do-list in vacations. One month ahead, they start dreaming how to roll out their plans in coming holidays.


No issue of getting scolds from Mom & Pa for not getting off bed in early mornings.

No tension of daily homework.

Fewer Studies, More Playtime, Watching TV Shows, Playing virtual games, visiting friends and families, excursion, blah, blah, blah.

They are so busy in their own world of celebrations, not able to sense growing dread on the faces of their Moms.

I have created the scene which happens around especially in nuclear families, where Mom has to tackle lot of things, home, kids, office, external & internal affairs. These days, Pops do share the responsibilities, still Mom care is a large & hectic business.

Rewind, go back in your childhood days. You too was same as your kids, rather I would say, kids of today are more civilized compared to our childhood days. Hope, you all agree with me.

Chalk out feasible routines, easy for you as a Mom and the best for your kids.


Plan an Excursion




Plan an excursion with family. Book the tickets just after the vacation resumes…you will be wondering, why am suggesting to start the vacation with an excursion.

Reason, kids are full of energy to celebrate their vacations. If they stay back, it will be tough to manage them indoors.On outing, their untapped energy will be exhausted in a positive way. You both will get break from your regular chores. Whole family will have great fun together, stress will disappear.

When you return after excursions, you will be filled with zest to do something better. Mind will be relaxed & fresh, kids can test your patience.

Kids will slowly settle down after fun of excursion and can be manageable.


For Working Moms


If you are working, pack your kitchen with readymade or homemade snacks, children need some delicacies to munch.

Pack your fridge with their favourite fruits, Mangoes are the favourite of children, squashes, sauces, jelly and ice-cream to spend their hot days with cold delicious delicacies.


For Stay at Home Moms



Keep grocery stock ready at home, the children can relish on the savories prepared by you. Here, I am being bit partial, giving freedom to working Moms to choose readymade stocks.  Mama. Be ready to display your culinary skills, this vacation. Normally, during school days, stress is more of studies and keeping up with the time-table, for both Mom and kids. During vacation, toss the time table, use the relaxed schedule to cook your children’s  and self-favourite dishes. It will be fun if you engage your kids to help you in chores, such as baking, laying down tables or any other fun activity. To make the vacation memorable, throw a small picnic party with their friends & neighbours. Wide smile on their faces will steal your heart.


Engage in Fun-Activities

Arts & Crafts Classes






Discover the interest of your child, make them invest in their favourite art & craft activity, such as painting, sketching, dancing & music, gardening,& other hobby classes. If you are adept in any art and craft, tutor them else admit them in summer hobby classes.

If your child has inclination in any art, he/she can explore on their own, encourage indulging. It will be a good pastime, energy being channelized in a  positive direction.

Summer camps




Nowadays, summer camps are arranged for the children during summer vacations. Sportive and interesting activities are taught with fun and play. The children learn up the things easily, medium of instruction is to learn via play. They enjoy and find engaging, grasp easily. I know of many summer camps where they teach how to take care of plants, first-aid, personal hygiene and self-grooming, how to arrange room and keep surroundings clean. Through play and skid, they are encouraged to weave interesting stories and enact on them. The activities are in sync with the age of the children. I have seen positive results in children attending summer camps, particularly the introverts shed their skin after interaction with summer camps, learn many new activities and etiquette at summer camp.

Word of caution, visit summer camps to see how they involve children in their activities before getting them enrolled. Summer camps are cropping up, so before getting them admitted, inquire about their credentials and authenticity.

Swimming Classes






It is fun for kids to play in water. Enroll them in swimming classes, it is one of the best exercise and fun and frolic for school going kids.

Encourage Reading Habits



In digital world, paperbacks are taking backseat but still I feel, children should be encouraged to read books. Reading books enriches vocabulary, instill interest, instigates creativity & imagination power. Buy books as per their age & interest, allot minimum one hour of reading hour every day. To make reading hour interesting, make them read in group of friends.


Encourage to Complete Summer Projects & Assignments



Ask them at what time they are comfortable to carry on their summer assignments and make them complete their assignments. Guide them but don’t write their projects and assignments. Let their imagination run and let them learn through trial and error. Make them understand that completing them throughout the stretch of vacation is desirable and easy instead of attending it at the last moment and getting stressed. Regular studies are beneficial for children.

Selfie Moments are the Moments to Be Cherished Always! #Mobiistar







Since my childhood days, I have great craving to capture beautiful moments and events. In our era, the camera was quite complicated because the compact camera did not exist in those times. I had to make repeated requests to elders to take a clip of the beautiful moment that I wanted to preserve in my album.


When I was in my secondary school, my father bought a compact camera, wherein, to capture or shoot, you just had to click the button and the snap was captured. It was captured in seconds, but we had to wait for the reel to finish and then it was delivered to studio for developing and then after long wait, we could have glimpse of the clipped pictures.


In those era, photography was rare, not so popular and people had to visit studios to shoot photographs or camera men were appointed for the special events and occasions.

With the introduction of mobile with camera, clippings became easy and there is no waiting period to watch the clippings. You can take innumerable snaps and can see and forward to your system or to your friend.

The Selfie mode made selfies popular such as rage for selfie experience and I have coined this term as “Selfie rage.” The people are busy taking selfies of each and every moment, at times, it looks silly but people have developed craze for selfie experience and day by day, the rage is deepening.

I still catch the special moments with friends, families, with nature and store in my mobile and transfer to my system when mobile alarms, “Not in a mood to accept more.”  😜


Rarely, I take selfie of my own, there are two reasons behind this, first one, I get over conscious and the snap comes out with frown and sad faces and I press Del button to delete it from the mobile gallery.


When my kids visit after long duration, I long to capture those precious moments with my kids and thankfully, the selfie frozen moments comes out beautiful and with poise. Those moments are my real selfie experience.




Just see this snap of mine, with my two young boys, escorting me from both sides. The moment that is frozen with them are the moments of pride and happiness for me, to watch my yesterday’s little boys grown into handsome Men. The feeling that sails through cannot be deciphered in words, it can only be felt and the feeling is very soothing.

I request youngsters to be alert while taking selfie and avoid in busy traffic, near railway track or trains or on hills and in water- bodies.

Make selfie experience memorable by newly introduced Mobiistar phone, which is an amalgamation of exquisite features and #EnjoyMore.

Features of Mobiistar suggests that people like me who are not so well-versed in capturing sharp selfies will be able to do with Mobiistar phone.

Mobiistar is introducing a phone with front, dual selfie camera that captures a 120° wide-angle shot and a large number of people can be captured at one time. Drop in at Flipkart to know more about its specifications, price and availability of Mobiistar phone.The salient features are mind-blowing, so if you are planning to buy a phone, then go for Mobiistar, no second thought. I have made up my mind to buy one for my personal use.

As in practice as soon as I receive the product, I try and test on me, first before handing over to kids.

Took a cotton ball and wiped and really, it vanished without any extra effort. So nice, I jumped with joy because I watch my sis-in-law reactions when my nephew smears himself with some stubborn stains. She has to rub his body with soap or liquid many times to get rid of stains and finally, his clothes are changed and her activity is full of hassles. I showed her the pack and detailed her about the product and she exclaimed, WOW, now, I will be spared and even baba won’t have to face trouble or listen my sermons when I am in panic state.
