NEWSMAKERS: 16-31 July 2001

SYED SHAHABUDDIN, former MP and president of the Muslim Majlis-e-Mushawarat (Shahabuddin group) has been elected member of the executive council of AMU. Syed Shahabuddin was also elected to the AMU court in its annual meeting on 2 July. Three other new members of the University court elected on the occasion are MUZAFFAR AHMAD FAROOQI, chairman of UP Waqf Board, SYED NASIR NAQVI, chairman of Rajasthan Waqf Board, and Urdu poet AKHLAQ MUHAMMAD KHAN.

Born in a small village in Gujarat, actor FAROOQ SHAIKH began his career in the film industry with Garam Hawa in 1973. With several hits in the cinema world, Shaikh now has another addition to make. The growing popularity of the serial Ji Mantriji on Star TV has brought Farooq once more into the limelight.
Ji Mantriji, based on the BBC serial Yes Prime Minister, has been a hit with the audience. The serial has been sanctioned by the BBC with the contraction of NDTV who has not compromised on the production.
Farooq has always worked hard to get the success. He is now living in Andheri, Mumbai with his wife, mother and two young daughters. He says that he is a person who does not like noises around him. He loves to read and travel.
Farooq says that in his 27 years of experience in the industry he has had no regrets and no grievances. He adds that he enjoyed all that he has done and did not suffer any major slump. He also says that he has received a lot of affection from the viewers and it is them and his family and close friends’ circle that he attributes his success.

To see JAWED AKBAR dressed in a traditional sherwani with old asharfis (gold coins from the Nizam's iron safe) as buttons, might seem like an anachronism, but the man insists that he is here to tell a different tale. 'I want to review the values of yesteryears and every-year and address everything which talks about our ancient glory-from the costumes and the rituals to the cuisine of the historical city of Hyderabad.’
A descendant of an aristocratic family of the city of Charminar, Akbar now propagates the aroma of Hyderabadi cuisine as a food consultant by digging out the recipes of yore and making them available to a wider range of palates.
While interest in food comes naturally to him, Akbar, in a way, was influenced by his father. 'We are a family which was a part of Nizam's ministry, but my father broke away and set up a hotel which emerged as Mumbai's first five-star, Banjara. After his untimely demise I took over the hotel. And here I am' says Akbar.

SANJAY KHAN is in news again. His magnum opus is going to give a gala time to Doordarshan's viewers with the launch of the chronicle of the first war of independence of 1857 on the national broadcaster. The 104-episode magnum opus was finally launched on DD recently. The soap will be viewed on 9:30 pm. Khan has earlier directed the famous episodes on Tipu Sultan on DD. Picturized on cinematic proportions at a cost of over Rs 15 crore, the tele-serial will bring alive before television audiences the mix of emotions from the 1857 independence war against colonialist.
Numero Uno International Ltd. owned by Khan, has already prepared 12 episodes for Saturday telecast. 'The locations are real. Studios have not been used to picturize the scenes,' Khan said adding that the serial involved a multiplicity of characters and had been a massive effort.
With satellite channels cutting into DD's viewer-ship, the famous actor-turned producer-director expressed confidence that the serial would bring back audience to DD in the ongoing channel war. 'Though we are not looking into commercial aspects, we shall also try to make it abroad,' he said.
The serial directed by Khan himself would provide viewers insight into the talents of hundreds of artists including veterans SM Zaheer, Maya Alagh, Tej Sapru and Raza Murad in prominent roles.
The scripts and dialogues are being written by Khan and Nawa Lucknowi, the music is being composed by Khayyam.

It is hard to define an artist like AKBAR PADAMSEE. He has been acknowledged as a self-defined grammarian of art. He is articulate, a thinker with a predominant philosophical streak. His explorations of art as academia have proved as fertile as his interfaces with Sanskrit linguistics or Chinese painting. All the world is his classroom even today. At 72, he has exhibited a versatile range of his colour graphics at the Pundole Art Gallery at Mumbai and the Gallery Sumukha at Bangalore last year. Over five decades Padamsee has relied on more conventional media and themes to express his creativity, celebrating cerebration through both his works and his conversation.
Trained at Sir JJ School of Art, Bombay, Padamsee left for Paris in 1951. For the next 15 years, Paris and Bombay became the twin bases of Padamsee’s artistic life, until he returned to live in India in 1967.
His life took another pivotal turn in 1969-70, when he was awarded the prestigious Nehru Fellowship. During its tenure, he explored films as an alternative means of expression, resulting in four short films. His works include the hotly debated Christ series, the lauded and raw nudes and the almost atavistic series of heads.
This master artist has been included in the prestigious World Encyclopedia of Art. His full biography is included in the Encyclopedia.

AMIR KHAN has a new ace up to his sleeves. His journey in a new avatar as a producer has been more successful than he might have imagined. Lagaan, the film based on British days is proving a mega hit in the whole country.
One of the most successful heros in the Bollywood in the recent times Aamir Khan is believed to have a tendency to do one or two films a year and most of his films are hit in the market, with box office always giving favour to this extremely talented man.
Lagaan the first film of Amir’s own production house is getting favorable reviews in all the newspapers and magazines and it is believed to be one of the most successful films in the recent times. Music composed by AR Rahman for the film has also become a roaring success with all, especially in major urban centres in the country.
