Sleeping beauties

Looks like we are all working very hard indeed. But what better than a cat-nap to compensate for late nights, and all too early mornings?

Noorbhai, the camera attendant has handed over his duties to Raees.

Anjibabu, the make-up man, asleep for the day.

"Rhea", played by my neice Anushka, has finished shooting for the day, but must wait for all of us to pack-up to go back to the hotel.

Dear Mukhtiar,

Congratulations on the success behind your filmography, thus far. We would be thrilled to show ‘150 Seconds Ago’ and/or ‘Lilkee’ for American audiences!

We invite you to join MHz NETWORKS in our effort to creative exceptional international youth-focused programs to our national network. We are starting pre-production on a daily 3 – 4 hour block of kid-friendly television programming featuring comedy and drama series, animation, short and full-length film and interstitials. It is time to reach out to our increasingly multicultural, multilingual, and internationally-minded families across the United States and share some of the most brilliant and creative programming from around the world.

The youth programming block will be featured daily on MHz Worldview (, a channel presenting fresh, relevant English language international content and will be seen nationally throughout the US. This means these programs will be accessible in homes all across the country- over 20 million to be exact! The boost in viewership of these programs will be astronomical.

We welcome content acquisition discussions and look forward to developing these options with you on case by case basis. Let's talk!
