The biggest multi-starrer series on the internet

What are Parineeti Chopra, Kalki Koechlin, Richa Chadda, Rhea Chakraborty, Bhumi Pednekar, Pritish Nandy, Soni Razdan, Shruti Seth, Aditi Singh Sharma, Cyrus Sahukar, Meiyang Chang, Anupama Chopra, Aditi Mittal, Naveen Kasturia, Miss Malini, RJ Malishka, Priyanka Bose, Shweta Tripathi doing together?

Y Films, the youth division of Yash Raj Films, India’s leading movie studio in association with India’s largest travelling film festival, the 6th Jagran Film Festival, in a unique initiative, is premiering the biggest multi-starrer series on the internet, Man’s World, on September 29, on YouTube. The trailer of the four-part series launches today on YouTube.com/YFilms.

The series, which has been created to promote the cause of gender equality in India to support the United Nations’ Global Goals for Sustainable Development campaign, features some of the biggest influencers associated with the cause of gender equality like Parineeti Chopra, Kalki Koechlin, Richa Chadda, Soni Razdan, Pritish Nandy, Rhea Chakraborty, Bhumi Pednekar, Miss Malini, Cyrus Sahukar, Shweta Tripathi, Priyanka Bose, Nidhi Singh, Naveen Kasturia, Meiyang Chang, Aditi Singh Sharma, RJ Malishka, Anupama Chopra and Aditi Mittal.

Man’s World, a comedy, is a what if. What if women treated men, the way men treat women. It is a story about walking a mile in their shoes, in that world. The lead protagonist of the series, Kiran, is a man who believes the world is unfair to men, and soon finds out how unequal, uncomfortable and unfair the treatment to women really was, when he faces gender discrimination as a man in a world that gets ‘flipped’. Kiran is played by Gaurav Pandey, who is being launched by YRF in the series. The series is written and directed by Vikram Gupta, who has earlier directed the Ching’s ‘Hunger Ki Bajao’ campaign TVC, starring Ranveer Singh and produced by YRF.

Speaking about the unique initiative, says Parineeti Chopra, “YRF has always been ahead of time. It was only natural that if the UN came and did something in India, that YRF would be involved in it. I hope this brings a positive change in everybody’s life.”

Says Pritish Nandy, “The crux of the matter is that you and I and all of us must practise gender equality all the time in every context without talking too much about it …. It’s something that must exist in your life as a matter of fact. “

Says Kalki Koechlin, “It’s fantastic that YRF is working in collaboration with the UN. I really hope the series picks up and people become more conscious about inequality.”

Says Richa Chadda, “It would be interesting if men had to give birth because if they had to then there would have been a painless way of pregnancy. They would have invented it by now.”

Speaking on this occasion, Mr. Vinod Srivastava (Sr. General Manager, Brand Development, Jagran Pakashan Ltd) said, “This is a very unique initiative undertaken at the Jagran Film Festival this year. We are glad that Y Films has come up with such a meaningful concept to support the gender equality and are honoured to showcase the series exclusively at JFF.”

YRF Vice President, Ashish Patil says, “Big shout outs & big love to all the fantastic people who’ve come on board and helped turn our first series, Man’s World, into the biggest multi starrer ever on the internet! They’ve all brought in an incredible energy and their own experiences into getting this very important message on gender equality out there to as many people as possible, making Man’s World truly special. We’re hoping our viewers enjoy watching it as much as we did making it.”

Man’s World will be available to audiences for free on the YFilms’ YouTube channel, starting 29th September. The second episode will premiere on 1st October, the third on 6th October, and the series finale will air on 8th October.

An exclusive, one-time only premiere of the full series, will happen at the 6thJagran Film Festival, Mumbai’s Largest Film Festival, on October 1 at 8.30 pm at Fun Cinemas, Andheri West. For more information, log on to www.jff.co.in.

Day three of the 5th Jagran Film Festival had something to appeal every cine buff with an impressive lineup of world cinema from a variety of genres. Not only that, the day took a retrospective time leap to pay a tribute to creations of legendary veteran directors Patrice Chéreau and Bimal Roy. All in all, with a 360 degree dose of Asian world premiers, Indian regional cinema, some classics and some award-winning world cinema, it was a day that truly traversed from the big screen to the hearts of Mumbai movie goers in every aspect.

 

At PVR Andheri, Asian premieres were in vogue on Day three as well. The day opened with Asian premiere of100 minute Chinese romantic drama ‘Takao Dancer’ directed by Wenshing Ho and Ouchal Hwang, followed by a Serbian emotional drama ‘Barbarians’ by first time director Ivan Ikic’s, a film that skillfully presents director’s hyper-realistic view at modern Serbia’s youth. Next in line came 2014 Spanish film ‘Bad Hair’ directed by Mariana Rondon that traces the big impact of a small scaled drama in the life of a 10-year-old boy who garners a simple wish to straighten his kinky hair. Featuring in the middle order of the day was Indian director Vikas Bahl’s fresh and power-packed comedy drama ‘Queen’ that had won a million hearts on its release early this year. A screening that particularly stood out at PVR Andheri was Jagran’s thoughtful tribute the late French director Patrice Chereau with his 2003 film ‘Phedre’.

The cine-goers at PVR Andheri also bagged an exceptional opportunity to personally witness and interact with eminent achievers of the Indian film fraternity such as director-producer Anubhav Sinha known for his directorial spree with ‘Ra.One’, ‘Dus’, ‘Cash’ and for producing ‘Gulab Gang’, actor Arjan Bajwa of ‘Bobby Jasoos’, ‘Son of Sardar’, ‘Tell Me O Khuda’, ‘Fashion’ and ‘Guru’ fame, actress Priyanka Bose who earned laurels for her work in films like ‘Johnny Gaddaar’, ‘Guzaarish’ and ‘Gulaab Gang’, casting director for ‘Titli’, ‘Daawat –e-Ishq’, ‘Lootera’, and Shanghai Atul Mongia and director of Dhoom and Dhoom 2 Sanjay Gadhwi. These masters of their crafts presented an unbiased view of the industry on ‘What Do The Director’s Look For’, a valuable session for aspiring actors who learnt an insider view on skills and talent needed to make a mark in the competitive industry.​
