The project was stalled for over a year, but finally, music maestro AR Rahman and filmmaker Shekhar Kapur could see one of their dreams of the non-celluloid kind come true. Together they have launched Qyuki, a website, which acts as a talent repository. The website allows consumers to create content of any variety — photographs, videos, music, short films, poems, short stories and so on — that can then be made available for viewing under various categories based on interests (the way Pinterest deals with content but only of photographic nature) or communities of people one wishes to engage with. The biggest draw that the website is likely to have is the fact that it will have successful people from across creative fields also engaging in creation and co-creation with regular members, thus making it a platform for talent hunt.
He has a taste for grandeur and that is evident in Sanjay Leela Bhansali's works. Even the details of his latest project — a television show, titled Saraswatichandra, based on a novel by the same name — bears proof to this fact. The first schedule of the show, which will premiere on Star Plus in 2013, has already been shot in Dubai. This will be followed by a shoot in Gujarat and then it will move to the grand three-storey set that has been constructed in Film City. So passionate is he about the project that Bhansali has, in fact, taken a break from shooting Ram Leela to focus on the details of the show.
