Navraj Hans hopes latest track is better than his own wedding playlist

Navraj Hans has big boots to fill, but the son of singer-politician Hans Raj Hans and son-in-law of pop star Daler Mahendi hopes to live up to the expectations. His latest step in that direction is lending his voice to a wedding single ‘Nachan Da Time Hogaya’ and he was in Dubai to announce the details.

“I agree that no wedding is complete with Punjabi songs and there are some iconic songs that are an absolute must. Every artist works in the belief that if he gives his best, that piece of work tops the charts. Nachan Da Time is like an appeal to all those at the wedding party who need a push to shed their shyness and get on the dance floor,” said the Hans junior.

“It is good to have the pressure of expectations so you know you have to deliver. I am fortunate that I am being compared straight with legends and it keeps me striving to do better.”

The comparison itch came out in a funny way as well when he was asked about his own wedding to Ajit Kaur, daughter of Daler Mahendi, who is present at every wedding in the world through his infectious chartbusters. “At my wedding, I was so disappointed with the songs being played. I kept telling myself, ‘o yaar, I could have done better than this myself.”

Shot in Agra, the lyrics of the captivating track are penned by the renowned songwriter Kumaar, composed by the talented Sunny Inder and produced by Puskur Ram Mohan Rao, Manish Vasisht, and Arzad Naaz. Directed by G Ashok and released by the music label, Ta Ra Rum Pum Music, Nachan Da Time Hogaya is a perfect blend of traditional Punjabi folk beats and contemporary musical elements while capturing the vibrant spirit and joyous atmosphere of a wedding.

The video, which was shown on a big screen at the Occidental hotel in Al Jaddaf, transmits infectious energy and foot-tapping rhythm. Watch the video here, and follow Ta Ra Rum Music’s YouTube channel.


Sharing spotlight with budding rapper

After promoting the music in India, where his father is a politician with the ruling Bhartiya Janta Party, Navraj came dressed in a rapper’s flamboyant jacket despite the summer heat going up couple of notches.

While giving interviews, a budding underground music artist Dhanishta Bhatia and the daughter of an influencer, gave Navraj a quick introduction about herself. Sportingly, the singer asked her to give out a sample in front of the watching cameras. When she finished, Navraj gave a supportive shout-out and even got the audience to chime in.

If the forwardness of Dhanishta (Itzz.starb on Instagram) and other influencers to grab the opportunity to sing and dance with the artist was not enough, hopefully ‘Nachan Da Time Hogaya’ will be pulsating enough to hit the floor with gay abandon.

Yami Gautam on challenges of embracing motherhood during shoot of ‘Article 370’



Mumbai (Maharashtra) [India], February 26 (ANI): Actor Yami Gautam talked about embracing motherhood and maintaining a balance between her professional and personal responsibilities.

She told ANI about doing the shoot during pregnancy, “First of all I am very fortunate that all the action scenes and rigorous training were done before and the portions that were left were mostly talking portion, scenes, exterior shots, travel and all. So, there are certain moments when you realise your true potential and can you do beyond your reserved energy and how much strength your mind has.”Speaking about the challenges, she added, “I am a professional who has taken a very big responsibility and who has been given a very big responsibility. I am representing something and somebody so important and at the same time embracing motherhood is beyond everything in this world. I have seen my mother balancing and so many other mothers I have seen doing so I thought I had to do it. I centred my thoughts.”She acknowledged her husband, Aditya (Dhar) as being her strongest supporter, “My husband has been there for me who is the producer of the film. The emotional support I got from him was incredible. “Aditya Dhar, who is the producer of the film shared, “It’s a feeling which I can’t express in words. We took a lot of precautions and there was the panel of doctors on set.”Yami and Aditya Dhar are currently occupied with the promotion of her upcoming film ‘Article 370’.

In the film that has opened to strong reviews and is drawing people to theatres on strong ‘word-of-mouth’, Yami plays intelligence officer Zooni Haksar.

Set entirely in the scenic backdrop of Jammu and Kashmir, the film is based on the landmark revocation of Article 370, which guaranteed special constitutional privileges to the erstwhile state.

In a bold move that few so coming, the Centre, on August 5, 2019, revoked Article 370, effectively stripping the erstwhile state of Jammu and Kashmir of its special privileges and splitting the region into two Union Territories–Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh.

On the positive reviews and early box-office success of her latest release, Yami, during a free-wheeling conversation with ANI on Monday, said, “We had full faith in the film striking the right chords and finding favour with the audience. We knew once a viewer watches the film once, his views and opinions in the matter (revocation of Article 370 from Jammu and Kashmir) would change. A common refrain in the congratulatory messages that I have been receiving since our film hit theatres is that the youth should watch it as there’s no propaganda in it.”Helmed by Aditya Suhas Jambhale, the film also stars Priyamani, Arun Govil and Kiran Karmarkar in key roles.

Filmmaker and Yami’s husband, Aditya Dhar, who produced this film, told ANI, “We could only work hard for this film, which we did. We knew once the film arrived in theatres, we wouldn’t have any control over how it was received by the viewers. There wasn’t much we could do. We just submitted ourselves to the audience and hoped for the best. We knew it was the audience, and the audience alone, who could give our film its due. Our film had characters based on real-life people, who worked tirelessly for the abrogation of Article 370 from Jammu and Kashmir. The idea was to narrate their struggles in real life and bring it to viewers through the audio-visual medium. However, we never imagined our film getting such a response and receiving so much love from viewers. We are truly overwhelmed. To those who called our film agenda or propaganda, all we said was that they should watch the film before judging it or running it down. Abrogating Article 370 was the biggest-ever decision that an elected government at the Centre has taken since independence.”Addressing an event during a recent visit to Jammu, Prime Minister Narendra Modi gave a massive shoutout to the makers of ‘Article 370’ saying, “I have been told that a film titled ‘Article 370’ is being released this week. It’s good that movies are being made on such issues. Apart from entertaining viewers, it will also raise general awareness on the events that led us to take this decision.”Responding to PM Modi’s remark, Yami took to Instagram and posted, “It is an absolute honour to watch PM @narendramodi Ji talk about Article370Movie. My team and I really hope that we all exceed your expectations in bringing this incredible story to the screen! “According to the makers, the film has already minted Rs 34.71 crore gross worldwide in three days.
