Featuring the leading lights of the industry, who hogged the limelight during the month
Master Chef Sanjeev Kapoor, the celebrated face of Indian cuisine, has won acclaim as the host of the longest running cookery show on television, author of cookery books, restaurant consultant and winner of numerous culinary awards. Kapoor’s dream is to bring the Indian cuisine on the top of the world and change the way Indians cook. He has now scaled newer heights as the brand ambassador of Sleek, the premium selling brand of modular kitchens in India. It is Sanjeev’s cherished belief that the modular kitchen brand provides a distinct, innovative and unique approach to cooking, and enhances lifestyle as cooking starts from good kitchen.
Sleek provides kitchens that are distinct, innovative and have a unique expression of lifestyle. The product range comprises everything necessary for the complete kitchen: wire baskets, soft closing drawers, storage units, corner units, utility wall hangings and appliances. They are competitively priced, yet give attention to the finest detail. Sleek International claims to be the first to bring the concept of modular kitchens to India, as early as 1993.
Real to Reel
After garnering accolades as the CMD of Amrapali Group — a leading Delhi-NCR based real estate company — Anil Kumar Sharma has now ventured into the creative field of film production. Produced under the banner of Amrapali Media Vision, ‘Gandhi to Hitler’ seeks to give the message of global peace, by bringing out the contrasting philosophies and personalities of Mahatma Gandhi and Adolf Hitler. The film shows how Hitler’s Nazism and violence resulted in Germany’s downfall, while Gandhi’s ideology of non-violence eventually led to India’s freedom, thus underscoring the superiority of Gandhism over Nazism.
The film has been released both in English and Hindi languages. The film’s international version is entitled ‘Dear Friend Hitler’ which has got rave reviews at the international platform of Cannes Film Festival 2011.
The film, directed by Rakesh Ranjan Kumar, has Raghuvir Yadav as Adolf Hitler and Neha Dhupia as Eva Braun. While the movie’s premiere was also held at New York on July 25, its Australian premiere is slated to be held shortly.
