BOMAN, SACHIIN call in One Voice to QUIT SMOKING

Boman Irani Sachiin Joshi, Goa Nicofix

23rd Aug, 2014

Lakme Fashion Week, The Palladium Hotel, Mumbai
Sachiin Joshi and Boman Irani unitedly called to the Media, the Bollywood industry and the people to Quit Smoking. This message was pronounced at the event to promote Goa Nicofix-anti tobacco chewing gum at a Five Star Hotel in South Mumbai on Saturday.

Sachiin Joshi along with actor Boman Irani promoted anti-smoking at Lakme Fashion Week, at this event where Sachiin pulled up his socks and sleeves as he introduced Goa Nicofix anti-tobacco chewing gum.

Goa Nicofix is a type of ‘Nicotine Replacement Therapy’ also helping to reduce nicotine cravings and is one of the products by Viiking Confectionaries, the CMD of which is actor Sachiin Joshi. It is also a cleaner way of taking nicotine as it is free from chemicals, tar and smoke. It keeps your breath fresh and does not stain your teeth.

Both Sachiin Joshi and Boman Irani present at the press conference to promote the product look dapper in suits! On his product Sachiin Joshi quoted, “Goa Nicofix is as discussed a nicotine replacement therapy for consumers who are smoking from a very long time and find it difficult to stop it. One can even say that is a kind of a CSR activity that I wanted to initiate and associate myself with.

Sachiin adds, every human body has nicotine levels in already in them and the consumption of cigarettes adds to the levels which makes us lethargic and reduces our stamina. Goa NicoFix is a product which will help consumers to kick the butt! Smoking is the most difficult habit to cut down on and is much more difficult than alcoholism to give up according to statistics in India”

On his association with Goa Niofix and him being chosen as a brand ambassador actor Boman Irani says, “ Sachiin here has chosen one of the youngest actors in the industry as a brand ambassador! (jokes apart) But when we were in school/college smoking was considered “cool” and the one who didn’t smoke was of course very “uncool”. Rather obvious it increased the number of smokers at that time because of the peer pressure. But today’s generation is much smarter and careful about their health. Also the people from our generation have stopped smoking and have become conscious about their health, diet and fitness. Believe me when I say, smoking does a lot of damage to the body and the after effects are very bad.I personally think this is cooler way of kicking the butt as one may put it. It’s a wonderful cause and I am extremely happy to be a part of it”.

A media from the crowd pops up and says, we heard that you are going to play a Yamraj in the advertisement of Goa Nicofix! Tell us more!

Yes! Boman quoted, “an advertisement has also been shot where I play Yamraj who always cribs about not being able to go on a holiday since he has a lot of death pickups to take care of, owing to smoking and its ill-effects. I therefore request people to use Goa Nicofix which will help them give up smoking, so the Yamraj (which is me) can lead an easier and carefree life!

Here is wishing everyone a good and healthy life!

Goa Nicofix chabao, apni umar badao!

Never run away from your passion – Sandeep Kapoor

sandeepkapoor1

“I have an adventerous journey towards my passion. To eat, sleep and dream Bollywood” says Sandeep Kapoor.

Born and brought up in Chandigarh, this jat had a very good upbringing in his ‘khandani’ (well known) family having its roots in this northern state since pre-independence times.
Says this fair, handsome dude ” The dialogue of Shah Rukh Khan in one of his hit films that “agar aap kisi cheez ko badi shiddat se chaho, to sari kainat aapko usse milane main lag jati hai” comes very true for me.’

“Since childhood I was nurturing my passion of acting for which I have to take in a lot of criticism and then even usually become a part joke from my friends and near dear ones. But from inside I was sure that one day I am going to live my dream.” Sandeep reminicizes those struggling times.

“In my collage days, I met a girl and decided to make her my life partner and started seeing my future through her. I came to Delhi to enter into media field and started working as freelancer with new channel Home TV.”

At one stage of his life, he even had this dilemma of choosing between my passion or the girl he would want to marry, as her parents has started looking for grooms.

“I decided to leave Delhi and came back to Chandigarh and joined a job with a salary of 1500 rupees, some 15 years ago.” he proudly announces.”

“I started my carrier as Sales Executive and when i got married my salary was 4835 rs to be precise.I tried to forgot my passion and started living happy life at Chandigarh.Though i was growing in my carrier but not able to live my passion always in my mind.There was a time i stopped watching films for almost 3-4 years as it reminds me of my love for acting.

What inspired him to enter Bollywood in his mid thirties? Usually the in thing in here in this hindi film industry, is usually when a guy is just out of college, he gets his portfolio done and then begins his journey in this “sone ki nagree”.

“One day while I was watching Filmfare awards and Boman Irani won an award for his performance. He said that he started acting at the age of 44, so never leave your passion. That day I decided to start afresh and I also did not want to regret at the age of 60 that I never tried in the most desirable professions deep in my heart… and mind.

“And this is power of attraction, I just happened to meet a Bollywood director Nabh Kumar Raju sitting next to me while travelling in a train. And I shared my ideas about acting and films and shared my love for the same.”

“I don’t know why, but this God sent Angel told me that he wants to help me. He persuaded me to join New York film Academy’s one month course at Mumbai. This golden soul also helped me in making my first documentary – ‘Therefore I win’. Then after it was no looking back.”

Readers can watch the documentary film – Therefore I Win, which is directed by him, at:

“This gave me lot of confidence and success in this field. Ofcourse, with the support of my wife, my parents and my 2 kids I started perusing my acting” says an emotional Sandeep.

Sandeep has acted in these projects -

‘Sadda Haq’, which is a Punjabi film where he is playing a role of CBI officer. The film has already been released internationally and broken all the records. Surprisingly, this film has garnered over Rupees 16 Crores in the overseas market. It has just been released in India on 10th of May and the initial response is very positive.

He has done a Hollywood film ‘Dreamz’ which is still in the making. This one is produced by Rai foundation and directed by Sumana Mukharjee. In Dreamz, he is an army man, and was tight lipped about the story, mentioning confidentiality clause signed by him.

Not the one to take things lying around and whiling time, Sandeep was honest to admit that there are times when he is unemployed and so he decided to take up whatever work he is offered. Hence he has also assisted Bollywood director Nabhh Kumar Raju in his next film NABBBEYY, Which is set to release by the end of this year.

He is also seen in a Television commercial alongwith Punjabi super star Satinder satti, and also acted in a Doordarshan television serial ‘Mandakini’.

Sandeep was a well settled guy in the corporate arena. Being quite successful, one day he decided to leave his job as General Manager and hopped on to a train at the very next opportunity. He landed up in the city of dreams Mumbai with the determination to give his 100 % to what he would love to do.

“My family and few of my friends are the biggest support that I am sitting here in the city of dreams, the city of Bollywood, living a hectic life and aspiring for very successful carrier.” says Sandeep.

Looking forward to see the Golden Lady in your hands this year.
