With Himesh Reshammiya bringing the kind of ‘desi’ melody that has always been in vogue and is pretty characteristic of his style that has never faded in last couple of decades, this song from Genius has actually turned out to be a rage on internet.

“Especially amongst youth, the song is a huge chartbuster,” says our source from Tips which has produced the album, “All credit to the simplicity that Himesh has brought in his music and the kind of lyrics that Manoj Muntashir has written. When it comes to the matters of heart, it is always the simplicity factor that works and that’s something that we were looking for when it came to a romantic situation in Genius.” Read more

Lifeasy, India’s leading On-Demand home services app, is now a cash positive organization- the first in the On-Demand Home Services Industry.

Speaking on the development, Rakesh Gupta, Co-Founder Lifeasy, said, “In a span of 2 years, Lifeasy has endeared itself to its users and subscribers.

Lifeasy is about making people’s life easy by letting them worry- one thing less at a time. With services ranging from cleaning to repairing to painting and others, Lifeasy is not a marketplace or an aggregator in a category crowded by the likes of UrbanClap or Housejoy. Only two years old, Lifeasy is a bootstrapped between its Founders. While FY 2016- ‘17saw 4000 completed orders, FY 2017-18 saw over 25,000 and a revenue stream of Rs. 3.25 Crores.

The current basket from Lifeasy works across 200 types in 18 categories. The variety ranges from repairing leaking taps to old furniture. From fixing electrical issues to appliance repair, home painting & cleaning services, personal care services and much more. Currently serving in the Delhi-NCR region (Delhi, Noida Greater Noida, Gurgaon, Ghaziabad & Faridabad), Lifeasy is a bootstrapped operation- having started with only Rs. 1.25 Cr. and will eventually move in to raise funds to accelerate its growth path. The expansion plans include expanding into the Bengaluru & Mumbai spaces after the Delhi-NCR market and expand its basket of services, so that Lifeasy becomes the partner of choice for any service at any home.

With a target of reaching the Rs. 50 Cr revenue mark by Q1-2020, Lifeasy plans to scale up with a daily service execution of 500-600 per day in the immediate future and going to 1500 services per day with the addition of the new cities- having services over 30,000 customers already in FY 2017-18 (inward revenue of Rs.3.25 Cr).

Film director, writer and producer Anubhav Sinha who has two promising multi-starrer films lined up for release this year, Mulk and Abhi Toh Party Shuru Hui Hai took a mini work vacation to Bollywood’s favourite destination, London last week.

Sinha who has shot over 200 music videos till date, will be directing a series of music singles for Anurag Bedi of Zee Music, inspired by American film series 50 Shifty Shades Of Grey. Each video aesthetically shot will touch upon the various shades of love such as yearning, fantasy, desire, infatuation. Bringing to life Sinha’s vision in the first two of these videos will be Jannat fame actress Sonal Chauhan who is busy shooting for Mahesh Manjrekar’s period based drama. New talent will be contributing to the music of the series which will release towards the latter half the year. The next three videos will feature Amyra Dastur who Sinha is in talks with.

Anubhav Sinha of Benaras Mediaworks who has wrapped up two of his mainstream projects within a span of six months and who will resume directing his next starting later this year states, “It has been indeed a long time since I have directed a music video and since both my forthcoming films have no quintessential Bollywood song and dance I thought it would be nice to satiate my long pending desire before I start shooting for my next film. I feel love today is a highly misunderstood and underrated concept and while India is known to be home to the Kamasutra, the common man shies away from this beautiful masterpiece as it’s still considered a taboo topic. I wanted to explore various shades of this wonderful emotion which seems to have acquired new meanings today. Sonal Chauhan was the ideal mix of grace, panache and appeal. Each single will touch upon a topic while the entire series will be called 5 Shades Of Love. ” Read more
