The Solo Tabla program is being organized by Parampara Ek Abhivyakti in Triveni Kala Sangam, Delhi on 9th December 2018. Tabla Maestro Mehul Sharma will present his presentation. When we had a conversation with Mehul Sharma, see how he combined youth and classical music. There was a little bit of emotion, chemistry and lots of music when Tabla Maestro Mehul Sharma got onto the stage to celebrate the power of classical music at the hall. What classical music for him is “Khudaa Ki Den”     Reporter :  Tell us a little bit about yourself sir. – I Mehul Sharma. I am from Mathura Uttar Pradesh but my Father is a music teacher in the Delhi School, so I grew up in Delhi. Since childhood, it has been a hobby of music that has caught music. Since dad is in music, so when I was five, I have been playing the tabla. I have initially learned classical tabla from my father Mr Rajesh Kumar Sharma and later by Mr Rohit Poddarji. At age of 18, to refines the art, I started learning tabla under the guidance of famous tabla exponent of farukhabad gharana – GURU Devashish Adhikariji. Guru Devashish Adhikariji is a living Tabla legend who gained his knowledge of pure traditional Tabla by his guru Ustad Sabir Khan.   Reporter :  Mehulji like you mentioned that classical music adds to hearts but in today’s pace the younger generation has left this music a lot behind. What do you look at from this? – It is true that classical music is going down, but the reason is also we are. Today we see that the younger generation has abandoned their tradition and has been doing Western music more. The truth is that the real classical music is becoming extinct, but for today’s generation, a new word has come into the market, which is called fusion. It combines classical music with western music and a new music is presented, and it has started appealing to the younger generation to hear classical music.   Reporter :  Is not it against our tradition to break the music? – It is also right or not. Look, the right thing is that people are not interested in classical music, now they have changed through fusion. And the other side is wrong on the other side, is our music so much disliked that we have to get the help of western music to woo young people? But the answer can not be given more than just this. Reporter :  Thanks Mehulji for giving us...

All the three main pillars of the film are hugely excited as their film is on the verge of completion and being readied for an early release. Ayyer Mohan of COMPLETE CINEMA spoke to all the three . Excerpts How did you enter the film industry ? MAHESH SHARMA::” I am in the film industry due to the inspiratiopn given to me from my younger brother Vishnu Sharma who has already seen the ins and outs of the film undustry since five years. He was shooting for a serial and on the set was Raama Mehra who was also acting in the serial. Their meeting clicked and Raama Mehra had one interesting story which Vishnu told me and we both decided to make the film KEEP SAFE DISTANCE. Actually, I am in construction business and the flow of money as easy for me to invest in a film. I am happy that the efforts of all the three of us has borne fruits and I will continue to make more films in the future too. Also, Sagar Joshi and Laxman Singh Rajput who are in my production team are working very hard and helping the film’s progress with great cooperation with all the actors, technicians,unit hands etc. who are going out of their way to make KEEP SAFE DISTANCE a very entertaining film for all ages.” VISHNU SHARMA” Film Industry Is a Very Good Industry For Creative People” What attracted you to the film industry ? Vishnu Sharma:” I was inclined to the film industry from childhood. I used to watch films in cinema halls. I used to act in the school plays, then college plays and also theatre. I also acted in the RAM LEELA plays in my hometyown in Kota for several years.One day,  popular actors Mukesh Khanna and Ramesh Goel had come to Kota for judging the audition test of several new actors from Kopta and I was selected. I came to Mumbai and got roles in mega serials like  MAHARANA PRATAP,ASHOK SAMRAT. During one of the shooting stints, I met Raama Mehra and the rest is history.” RAAMA MEHRA : “Film Industry Also Belongs To Single Producers like Mahesh Sharma and Vishnu Sharma” Having served the film industry in several capacities as actor, writer,director since 28 years, it was the lucky phase of Raama Mehra which made him get the film KEEP SAFE DISTANCE which he has says is a daringly different story of a call girl, played by Sagarika  who is respected as a Devi by the people. How an ACP( played by Jai Yadav) comes to her life and changes her entire life forms the crux of the story. Raama says:” I had gone to meet the heroine Sagarika and luckily I saw hero Jai Yadav sitting in the same production office where Sagarika had gone to give a look test. Even producer Mahesh Sharma was happy talking to him. I loved his nature and the way he carried himself and we signed both Sagarika and Jai Yadav on the same day. Then signing actors like Kiran Kumar,Mushtaq Khan, Adi Irani was very easy as I have worked with them as an actor in several films earlier . I  also worked as assistant writer to Meeraq Mirza in 40 of his films which he had written. I made KEEP SAFE DISTANCE in just 35 shooting days in actual locales of Kota,Future Studios, Silvassa, Essel Outdoor,Khanvel Resort, Madh Island and I...
