On Chennai’s 377th founding day, the US Consulate General of Chennai shared this cute video of an American family visiting the Kasivinayaga Mess in Chepauk, Chennai for a full vegetarian meal. And yes, they ate it like it should be - on banana leaves with their hands. Watch and enjoy.
Yes, the report actually quotes Shyam Benegal saying that the he has “found a mad-creative filmmaker in Harsh” and believes he can “take on all creative responsibilities necessary in making this film.”At a time when the IMPPA has called for a ban on Pakistani actors in India, this report inevitably grabbed a lot of attention by announcing a cross-border film which would be produced by none other than Shyam Benegal - a Padma Bhushan recipient and Dada Saheb Phalke Award winner.
“EXPLOSIVE: Prabhadevi’s Shattering Confession, “Yes I Am Sridevi’s Unknown Sister” screamed the headline on an old issue of Cine Blitz. A dolled-up lady on the cover with pouty lips declared that she was actor Sridevi’s long-lost sister, Prabhadevi. The issue probably sold out because of that sensational piece of news - Woah! Sridevi has another sister no one knew of? This was probably one of the most elaborate April Fool pranks played by a film glossy in the 90s.
#Food : An interesting note on the origin of 'sambhar', it was apparently first brewed in Thanjavur, it's name originated from 'Sambhaji's ahar' after it was served to Sambhaji, son of Chhatrapati Shivaji. This note is from A Rama Nayak's Udupi Sri Krishna Boarding, Mumbai. https://t.co/KBS8rKzHCh
Sad to see #RanveerSingh struggle to NOT openly having to condemn the state's active participation in playing politics with #Padmaavat. He did say it borders on fascism though. Was diplomatic about Bollywood's lack of support too.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
