Indian classical music concert review By Mr Pir Tareen MRS Sunita Tikare, a very well-known classical artist from Mumbai, had a very short stop-over in Brisbane visiting relatives, and during this time, we had the good fortune of listening to her mesmerising recital. Mrs Tikare has had initial training in vocal music from Ustad Tulsidas Barkar and Smt. Shaligram Gokale. She is currently continuing her training by Smt. Kishori Amonkar who is renowned as the jewel on the crown of Indian classical music. Mrs Tikare met up with our very own renowned artist and music teacher, Ustad Rahim Zullah. Ustadji, at a very short notice, managed to arrange a small concert at his Music School in Annerley. The concert amazingly was attended by a cross-section of the Australian community. Mrs Tikare received appreciation for her singing of classical ragas like Yaman, Jog, Nand and Patdip. She also rendered a Tarana is ragas Yaman and Malkauns. The evening came to an end with a folk song, a Bhairavi thumri and some Mera bhajans. The visiting artist was very ably accompanied on tabla by Mr Shen Findell and on the

harmonium by Ustad Rahim Zullah. Mrs Tikare was full of praise for the two accompanying artists and also acknowledged their

respective music schools in Brisbane, where there are opportunities for training in Indian classical music.

Finally, Mrs Tikare was interviewed by the Australian Indian Radio.

Even God can’t bring the Khans together: Farah Khan

Choreographer-turned-filmmaker and TV show host Farah Khan might be good friends with all the three Khans of Bollywood – Shah Rukh, Salman and Aamir, but she admits that even she can’t promise that she will ever get all three on board for a film. “I think even God can’t bring them together so I am not even attempting that,” says Farah, laughing as she adds, “I tried to bring them together eight years back for the title track of Om Shanti Om but even that didn’t happen.” While the song from the Call Trudi on 07 3865 6533

Shah Rukh Khan-Deepika Padukone starrer saw 30 Bollywood celebs including Salman Khan groove together, Aamir was missing in action. Farah has, however, not lost hope completely. “Let’s see, fingers crossed, if I’m able to cast Shah Rukh, Salman and Aamir together, it’ll be fabulous. Chances are less but may be some day I might just get lucky, so never say no,” says the 50-year-old director, who’s made blockbusters including Main Hoon Na (2004) and Happy New Year (2014). HT

Angry Preity Zinta snubs journo for asking about ex-beau Ness Wadia FOR Preity Zinta, questions regarding her fallout with ex-boyfriend Ness Wadia irk her, and the actor surely drives the point home. Preity was at an event recently held to promote her IPL team before the next season of the tournament begins, where a reporter of a TV channel prodded her regarding Wadia. Annoyed, Preity snapped at the reporter calling it highly inelegant to be asking

such questions at the event. “Why do you have to ruin it (event); why do you want to ruin everything?” Preity said, adding “What happens on the ground is different from what happens off it. I will really appreciate if the media didn’t make a big deal out of it.” With that, the event came to an early end, and a sulking Preity walked out. HT
