In a global showcase of advantages of using stainless steel in the corrosion-prone coastal areas, China has built a 55 km long Hongkong – Zhuhai – Macau bridge using around 10,000 tonnes of stainless steel, among other metals. Chinese President Mr Xi Jinping inaugurated the bridge on October 23, 2018 for public use. The bridge has used over 10,000 tonnes of nickel containing duplex stainless steel reinforcement bars in construction at critical corrosive zones. This is expected to ensure a projected life of 120 years for the structure, which will be under constant corrosive attack of saline sea water. This landmark structure is a bridge tunnel system consisting of a series of three cable stayed bridges, one 6.7 km under sea tunnel, and 3 artificial islands. The bridge is an engineering marvel constructed over 9 years, at an estimated cost of $20 billion.

After receiving standing ovations and awards at the London and Melbourne film festivals, debutant director and Mumbai boy Tabrez Noorani’s film Love Sonia is set to make India proud on the international stage one more time.

Love Sonia will be released in China in October after its India release this 14th September; the film has already won many awards to its name including Best Indie Film and Best Supporting Actor to Richa Chadha at the Indian Film Festival of Melbourne and Best Outstanding achievement award to Richa Chadha at the London Indian Film Festival.

Traditionally, for Hindi films to release in China had to wait for their release in India; there is then a long process for approval. The entire process can take 12-18 months however, Love Sonia has been excluded from these formalities in fact distributors from across China after watching the reactions of the audiences at the screenings in London and the strong media buzz have bought the rights for theatrical release in China even before the release in India. Films from India like Dangal with strong female characters fighting against the odds have done very well in China and the distributors from China feel that Love Sonia’s inspiring story of a 17 year old who takes on the world of human trafficking to save her sister will resonate with the Chinese audiences.
