Priyanka Chopra to produce Malayalam remake of Marathi hit ‘Ventilator’

The Marathi original, also produced by Chopra, won three National Film Awards this year.

Priyanka Chopra’s foray into regional cinema as a producer continues. Her 2016 Marathi production Ventilator, which was a box office hit, will now have a Malayalam version, also backed by her company. Chopra’s mother, Madhu Chopra, confirmed the news to the Deccan Chronicle newspaper. The slice-of-life drama, directed by Rajesh Mapuskar, revolves around a family whose eldest member becomes comatose days before the Ganesh Chaturthi festival. Ventilator won three National Film Awards this year, including Best Director (Mapuskar), Best Editing and Best Sound Mixing.

Chopra does not seem to have any Hindi films in the bag, and is focusing on her Hollywood career. She continues to invest in regional cinema, and her upcoming films include the Punjabi film Sarvann, the Marathi film Kay Re Rascalaa and the Sikkimese film Pahuna, directed by Pakhi Tyrewala.

A phone so stunning that it deserves its own photoshoot

Presenting the Moto X4, crafted to perfection.

Precision-crafted glass and metal design, an anodised aluminium frame, easy to hold and featuring beautiful contours, the Moto X4 is crafted to perfection indeed.

The light reveals the fluidity of its body; curves that fit perfectly in the contours of a palm.

Reclining on a bed of satin, the glass-encased phone blends into the folds of the luxurious fabric.

The slimness, seamlessness and solidity of the phone make for a great profile shot.

A stunning design which is IP68 rated water-resistant too, it is as beautiful as it is strong.

We partnered with photographer Gaurav Sawn to create this series. Says Gaurav, “The glass sandwich design looks extremely good and the reflections on the back panel make the phone stand out. This is a phone that is best used without a case. The curved corners were also very comfortable to hold. All in all, really enjoyed shooting this phone!”

While this phone is elegant and crafted to perfection, it is also extremely tough, being protected from scratches with Corning® Gorilla® Glass that stretches all the way around.

You don’t need to sacrifice of performance either. It’s packed with a 2.2 GHz octa-core Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 630 processor and comes with a TurboPower™ Charger which means hours of power in minutes!

For the music lover, this phone is a boon. With simultaneous connectivity of up to four Bluetooth® audio devices at the same time, you can build your own stereo system without worrying about cables.

The dual rear cameras – a 12MP that lets you focus faster and get great results even on dark, cloudy days, and an 8 MP camera, with wide angle lens makes your most ambitious photos look all the more impressive.
