Within just 50 days of its release, Atif Aslam’s ‘Dil Meri Na Sune’ has crossed the 100 million mark when it comes to the online views. 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

Jassie Gill

Popular singer Jassie Gill, who is eagerly anticipating the release of his big Bollywooddebut, Happy Phirr Bhag Jayegi, produced by Eros International and Aanand L Rai’s Colour Yellow Productions and directed by Mudassar Aziz, had a whale of a time shooting for the laughter riot.
Besides sharing the screen space with Sonakshi Sinha for the first time and working with Aanand L Rai and his costars including Diana Penty, Jimmy Shergill, Piyush Mishra and Ali Fazal, the film is quite special to Jassie for quite a few reasons, including the fact that he had to sport several pagdis in the movie!
“Since I belong to a Sardar family, I’ve always been fond of wearing a pagdi,” Jassie informs as he recollects, “I used to have pictures of popular Punjabi singers on the wall of my room and I used to look at them and wear pagdis. When I started my singing career and was in college, I wore a pagdi for one of the scenes in a music video.” Then i wore Pagdi in my video Bapu Zimidar & Att Karti, with the grace of Almightly, both became sesational hits.
While most of his costars only changed into their next costume, Jassie would take relatively more time to change since he had to wear a Pagdi as well! Interestingly, Mudassar along with the cast would often playfully pull his leg over this by blaming him for delaying a shot! 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. We have gathered our learnings from every single one of the 30,000+ services & deliveries that we have done so far. We are sure that our consumers will continue to place their faith in us and that Lifeasy will go ahead full steam with the varied offerings & plans that we will have in the coming future”.

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).
