Entertainment in India is important and every kind of entertainment in India is important. Most people are glued to their seats when it comes to entertainment, be it sports, movies, serials or any form of classical dance. Entertainment has long been people’s stress buster. As we all know that the Indian Entertainment industry is one of the biggest industries and also has the potential to grow tremendously. It has outwitted many records in the recent past, however, the pandemic has taken a toll on the entertainment industry worldwide. Now, the world has moved towards the OTT platform, i.e. Over The Media and that has conquered the place of motion pictures for a moment.

How does art depict feelings?

Model Ava Aashna Chopra said, “Every form of art is a showcase of the feelings and people see the feeling of their emotions through the various art forms. When the art coincides with the movie it gives a brilliant inside of the mysterious world and that is also mystical. Many actors and actresses have been iconic by playing the roles that have moved the nations and stirred the people’s emotions.”

The entertainment industry is a mix of emotions and it depicts larger than life paintings that have colours of life painted by the director and scriptwriter. Although the movies have taken a backside, OTT platforms have been a prime face in entertaining people and making their lives more and more stress-free. “Many new faces are coming into this industry with the hope to get famous and get a shine from the bright and mammoth entertainment industry of India. There are immense platforms that give cult classic serials and fiction serials showcasing the other dimension of the world. Where the OTT platform has been appreciated by the audience, many models have been taking the modelling industry by storm. It has also sighed relief to the people who have invested a lot in the entertainment industry, especially the movie industry,” Sharma added. 

Sharing about her own journey Ava Aashna Chopra said that it has been full of determination and I am honoured to be the first Southeast Asian model to feature twice on the cover page of L’Officiel Latvian Edition in Eastern Europe. “The Modelling industry is flourishing by recognizing the South East Asian Model, those who are talented and can face tough situations then it is a dream profession for them”, Ava said. She added that she has chosen this enchanting profession and has worked tremendously to become the known face in the South Asian modelling industry. 

Many great models have successful stints in the modelling industry and now people are transcending towards the new trend of modelling after the surge of the pandemic in the world. The global modelling industry is back into action after the months of stagnation. The business of fashion is back into the limelight and many new faces will emerge through the sunshine.

People in England will no longer be required to wear face masks anywhere or work from home from next week, Prime Minister Boris Johnson said on Wednesday, adding that scientists believed a wave of the Omicron coronavirus variant had peaked nationally.

Johnson also said that while people would still be required to self-isolate for now, he did not expect to renew self-isolation legislation, which will expire in March, and would look into scrapping the requirement sooner.

“Because of the extraordinary booster campaign, together with the way the public have responded to the Plan B measures, we can return to Plan A in England and allow Plan B regulations to expire as a result from the start of Thursday next week,” Johnson told parliament.

Air India cancelled eight flights on India-US routes from Wednesday onwards due to deployment of 5G internet in North America which could interfere with aircraft’s navigation systems.

Meanwhile, DGCA chief Arun Kumar told PTI that the Indian aviation regulator was working “in close coordination with our carriers to overcome the situation” that has arisen due to 5G internet’s deployment in the US.

US aviation regulator Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) had on January 14 said that “5G interference with the aircraft’s radio altimeter could prevent engine and braking systems from transitioning to landing mode, which could prevent an aircraft from stopping on the runway”.

Altimeter measures height of the aircraft above the ground. The band on which altimeter works is close to that on which 5G system works.
Total three carriers — American Airlines, Delta Airlines and Air India — currently operate direct flights between India and the US.
American Airlines and Delta Airlines did not respond to PTI’s queries regarding this matter.

Air India stated on Twitter that it won’t be operate eight India-US flights on Wednesday “due to deployment of the 5G communications in the US”.

on

Media firm Network18 Media & Investments Ltd on Tuesday reported a 7.93 per cent decline in its consolidated net profit to Rs 306.94 crore for the third quarter ended December 2021.

The company had posted a net profit of Rs 333.38 crore in the October-December quarter a year ago, Network18 Media & Investments Ltd said in a regulatory filing.

However, its consolidated revenue from operations during October-December 2021 jumped 16.52 per cent to Rs 1,657.43 crore, compared with Rs 1,422.45 crore in the year-ago period.

“Not only did the news business (TV and digital) see a sharp improvement in profitability but the entertainment business also continued to deliver strong margins,” said Network18 in a post-earnings statement.

Its revenue growth momentum continued during the quarter as the company reported its “highest-ever” Ebitda of Rs 373 crore and quarterly revenue of Rs 1,657 crore, despite the pandemic-induced headwinds faced by the movie business, Network18 added.

Ebitda stands for earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation.

Network18’s total expenses stood at Rs 1,337.63 crore, a 14.51 per cent jump in Q3/FY 2021-22 as against Rs 1,168.17 crore a year ago.

Network18 Chairman Adil Zainulbhai said, “Over the past few years, we have taken several significant steps that have helped us achieve the turnaround on profitability front, and it is really encouraging to see the business now consistently deliver healthy margins, especially the digital news business which has been growing in a profitable manner.” Over the past several years, content consumption is an integral part of consumers’ lives and there is a willingness to spend more time and money, provided that they get access to quality content at an affordable price.

“Also, consumers are increasingly becoming platform-agnostic, with both TV and digital growing simultaneously. Our endeavour is to cater to all consumers looking for news and entertainment content in their local languages, movies and leading sports events, on platforms of their choice,” he added.

Shares of Network18 Media & Investments Ltd on Tuesday settled at Rs 90 apiece on the BSE, down 1.59 per cent from the previous close.
