Harvard Business School (HBS) has chosen Excel Entertainment for case Study, a first time on an Indian film company.
Ritesh Sidhwani had done a key note panel discussion in March 2012, which gave them a good insight and they decided to take it further by doing a case study.
Mrs. Mukti Khaire the Associate Professor at the Harvard Business School flew down from Boston for a week and was the faculty lead on the case.
Mrs. Khaire worked closely with Namrata Arora- the Associate Director of the Harvard University South Asia Initiative during the case-writing process on Excel Entertainment.
As part of their research they did extensive interviews with Ritesh, Farhan and a lot of key members of the Excel team.
Harvard Business School cases are a description of a management situation and are used for class discussion in a variety of educational programs. The case study on Excel will be taught to the second year MBA students at HBS in Jan/Feb 2013.
A case study taught at HBS is considered highly prestigious as after being taught at HBS it's picked by professors from universities worldwide
HBS case studies are also put on the Harvard Business Publishing website for professors to purchase and teach in their respective universities.

OMG OH MY GOD's God Akshay Kumar visits his shrine in Muscat

By Glamsham Editorial
Bollywood has new actors, debutant actresses and brand new item girls are news which is done that, heard that before. But OMG OH MY GOD! has something new or should we say 'someone new' to add to the list.
Akshay Kumar who is playing the character of God in OMG OH MY GOD! is himself taking blessings from God that too in Muscat.
Akshay was shooting for his film ONCE UPON A TIME IN MUMBAAI 2 which is a sequel to ONCE UPON A TIME IN MUMBAAI in Muscat, the capital city of Oman in the Middle East. While he was shooting for the film, Akshay took out time from his schedule and visited a mosque in Muscat.
He made this special trip to seek blessings for the well being of his soon to be born second child and to pray for his baby venture OMG OH MY GOD! that releases this September. Both his babies are expected to come into the world this September and he is very nervous.
This is the first time for Akshay for being the producer with OMG OH MY GOD! being his first venture as a producer as well as an actor. The film revolves around the two characters of Paresh Rawal and Akshay Kumar. Where in on one side Akshay is playing the role of God, Paresh Rawal is playing the character of Kanji Bhai who owns the shop of God idols. The film is a cinematic adaption of the very popular Gujarati play named 'Kanji Virudh Kanji'. It also includes influences of Paresh Rawal's Hindi play 'Krishnan vs Kanhaiya' and guess who is adding tadka to this mix of enthralling watch- Sonakshi Sinha. She has done a special item number with Prabhudheva for the film. The name of the song is 'Go Go Go Govinda.'
Now that Akshay has the blessings from above, we are sure to know that the well being of both his son and film OMG OH MY GOD! is assured.

Kangana Ranaut: Commitment phobic or publicity hungry?

By Glamsham Editorial
Kangana Ranaut is widely known for the eccentric characters she portrays on the big screen! But the small town girl manages to keep the grape wine abuzz with her link-ups and relationships, more than her career graph.
This self-proclaimed trendsetter made it to the front page after a long time for publically announcing yet another relationship. But this relationship with UK-based doctor Nicholas Lafferty fell flat soon after, with Kangana citing the age old reason of not being ready for a commitment.
What went wrong you ask? Well, sources close to the actress told Zoom that the whole relationship was a figment of Kangana's imagination! The actress paid to get herself clicked with her beau and had the pictures published in the media!
Money can't buy love for sure, but it can certainly buy you the desired publicity! Right Miss Ranaut?
