"Death Certificate"--A relevant, regional language film by Rajaditya Banerjee sets foot at the International Film Festivals.

"Death Certificate" is the Debut Feature Film of Rajaditya Banerjee. It deals with a very relevant issue of the struggles in any backward minority community in India. They are simple people and are unaware of the complicacies of the so called modern world. The story revolves around the life of a tribal woman and her search for her missing husband, who serves water to thirsty passengers at a small railway station in eastern India. As she embarks on this unknown journey, she faces the cruel, corruption in the bureaucracy and tries to come in terms with her own personal loss. The film raises the pertinent question of human values or the lack of it in today's society. We may have globalized technology, but when do we globalize humanity?

Yuvraj Singh breaks the gender bias against Pilates

It is a funny culture to deem some fitness regimes as ‘manly’ or ‘girlish’. A true sportsperson can spot the difference between what is hardcore or not, irrespective of how a layman perceives it. In the same constant pursuit for fitness, cricketing star Yuvraj Singh has been training with Sameer Purohit in the new age fitness routine, Pilates to expand his realm of fitness. The sports star was recently spotted at Namrata Purohit Pilates studio with Sameer and his celebrity trainer daughter Namrata Purohit after an intense workout.

She has been training and an array of celebrities like Jacqueline Fernandez, Lisa Haydon, Arjun Kapoor, Aditi Rao Hydari, Aditya Roy Kapoor, Kangana Ranaut, Malaika Arora Khan, Esha Gupta and Nargis Fakhri. She is constantly striving towards making more and more people familiar with Pilates and do away with people’s misconception.
