Fog Catcher Films to produce movie on the life of living legend Alamgir

Fawad Khan revealed as #AlbelaRahi in exclusive kick-off event ♥

Karachi; 24th January 2016: Fog Catcher Films, a sister concern of Stimulus Productions, has announced what can be tipped to be the next blockbuster of the Pakistani cinema industry, Albela Rahi – a film on the epic tale of once an ordinary man, Alamgir, who rose to be the iconic Pop star of Pakistan and the one who pioneered the pop music genre in Pakistan.

It has been revealed that the lead actor playing the legendary pop singer is none other than Fawad Khan, Pakistan’s leading heartthrob and superstar. The 34-year-old actor who has been a true sensation in the television and film industry of Pakistan and India is perfect for this role having been a seasoned musician himself. Fawad Khan made his cinematic debut in 2007 and has come a long way since then, making his Bollywood debut in Shashanka Ghosh’s Khoobsurat opposite Sonam Kapoor.

According to an insider, although Fawad is very selective when it comes to signing a film, he fell in love with the script and the story of Albela Rahi and has been on-board since day one!
The plot revolves around Alamgir and his struggles, his journey from East to West Pakistan and how he brought a wave of pop music along with him. Alamgir with his vigorous style of singing and stage performance brought a fresh breath of air to the Pakistani music industry in the early 1970’s. He introduced Urdu pop music and became an instant hit with his song ‘Albela Rahi’.
With an original script, a legendary protagonist together with Fawad Khan as the male lead, ‘Albela Rahi’ – Fog Catcher’s debut film shows immense potential of being a huge critical and commercial success.
‘Fog Catcher Films’ is a sister company of Stimulus Productions, Pakistan’s leading TV commercials’ production house. Stimulus Productions has rose to top in short period of six years and has produced over 200 television ads for blue-chip brands in Pakistan, working with both local and foreign directors.

About the Film Project Charlie

It was a fine chilly night of December 2013 when Sultan Ghani Afzal and Faisal Hashmi were sitting in the Stimulus office when suddenly it dawned on them that it was high time they made a film! It was always Sultan’s dream to make a film on someone who has left behind a legacy and changed the music industry forever. When it came down to deciding the protagonist, Alamgir – the legend who pioneered pop music in Pakistan was the ultimate front-runner! And so began the journey of Project Charlie – their code name for this film.
Project Charlie has finally been launched today as “Albela Rahi” and they are very proud of the fact that this is the first time a film is being made on a legendary pop icon of Pakistan. The idea has been polished for the past two years, the script rewritten and refined to the core and a great deal of effort made to bring it to where it is today.

Sultan Ghani Afzal said.

“Although the concept of this film is a novel one in itself, we wanted to ensure that every other aspect of it is nothing short of being spectacular. Enter Fawad Khan – who we believe is the perfect actor to play Alamgir and carry on his legacy. We are very pleased to have Fawad on board since day one when we had shared with him the idea and script of Albela Rahi.”

Commenting about the living legend himself, Faisal Hashmi commented,

“We are immensely grateful to the legendary Alamgir for embarking on this journey with us to tell his life’s story through Albela Rahi. We respect him with all our hearts and cannot wait for the world to see how he transformed the Pakistani music scene with his majestic wave of Urdu pop and burning flair for stage performance.”

About Fog Catcher films

Fog Catcher Films is a new venture of the Stimulus Group of Companies that aims to conquer the Pakistani cinema by making movies that have a unique concept and storyline. It endeavors to showcase the essence of the Pakistani film industry that has been missing for a long time to both Pakistani and international audiences.
The company might be new but the people behind it are veterans in the production industry of Pakistan. Sultan Ghani Afzal – the CEO of Fog Catcher Films along with Faisal Hashmi – the CEO of Stimulus Group of Companies, the makers of ALBELA RAHI have had the experience of producing over 200 TV commercials in the past six years. They have that burning passion and commitment to the film which will make it the next blockbuster of the Pakistani film industry!

#BigThickSmiles at Karachi Eat this weekend

There is no sincerer love than the love of food. 

Karachi, Friday, 22nd January 2016:  This weekend, at Karachi’s largest food festival, the third annual Karachi Eat being held at Frere Hall, Big Thick Burgerz (BTB) is introducing a campaign to help spread smiles to the entire city. They claim that for every 10 burgers sold at the festival, 1 will be served to a hungry street child. they tried to follow Mother Teresa’s quote:

If you can’t feed a hundred people, then feed just one.

Building on the concept of ‘since it’s ‘Karachi Eat’, no one should sleep hungry’, the brand representative Adil Awan stated, “You see a lot of people from the upper and middle class enjoying the best of Karachi food at this festival. Brands make money, people get entertainment and somehow in our frivolities we tend to forget about the underprivileged.” According to Adil:

#BigThickSmiles is about one brand trying to give back to the community in a small way.

“We pride ourselves on the constant love and support of our patrons. Even in this saturated market, our clientele trusts us because they know we serve the best quality meat from MeatOne, chicken from K&Ns and provide a 100% authentic charcoal grilled experience that no one else can”

Mr. Ali Amanullah, co-founder and director of Big Thick Burgerz said:

“Exactly like our day to day business operations, we are banking on the success of this campaign only with the help of our customers who visit us at Karachi Eat Festival.”

Although this campaign is supposed to last for the duration of Karachi Eat, Mr. Amanullah is hoping the public’s response is overwhelming enough to make sure this can turn into a regular endeavor for BTB. People can help the campaign by either purchasing a burger or by spreading the word on social media by using the #BigThickSmiles hashtag. Everyone who talks about the campaign on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram with the hashtag will be rewarded with a 15% discount on their next order from BTB either at dine-in or through delivery.

Besides the #BigThickSmiles campaign, customers will be able to avail upto 40% discount on menu items all throughout the Karachi Eat Festival at stall number 63.

About Big Thick Burgerz BTB)

Founded in January 2012, BTB is a partnership between two brothers who have lived and worked abroad. Despite all the corporate experience, both owners love to BBQ at home which is the secret behind their mouthwatering, scrumptious, juicy and succulent homemade charcoal grilled to perfection burgers.

Legacy of the “Big Thick Burgerz” (BTB) dates back some 25 years when one of the owners, Saad Amanullah while studying in the US tasted, experimented and BBQed different recipes of burger patties. After tasting many different combinations and using exotic ingredients, he came up with a much larger, more succulent and very juicy homemade burger patty which has become everyone’s favorite. This mouthwatering burger patty is what we are now offering to the general public as the “Most Wanted BTB”

Just one bite of our “Most Wanted BTB” and the one eating it, is hooked. Freshly made patties, rich and fresh ingredients, handmade, BBQ’ed on live coals which leave a rich smoky flavor and keep the patties juicy until the final bite. Best buns, freshly cut iceberg lettuce, tomatoes and onions and a host of herbs have been used to make BTB an everlasting and satisfying experience.

I’m baaack!!!!!

Wow, I can’t even imagine how long it’s been since I’ve written on my blog. It’s actually my first post for 2016.
I felt bad because I think about writing on my blog but I don’t have anything “meaningful” to post. I love writing but I hate to write just to fill in the blog.
So here’s a small teaser for my Wednesday Wisdom Promise which I made on one of my previous posts:  https://kinzzatariq.wordpress.com/2015/12/05/december-is-here/
Here you go!
Zig Ziglar has a nice quote:

” Motivation doesn’t last long, so does bathing. That’s why they recommend it daily”.

I am a big fan of motivational speakers such as Joel Osteen, Brian Tracy and Zig Ziglar. Their words keep me going.
And the famous quote of Robert Schuller, the

“Tough times never last, but tough people do”.

My perspective:

This world needs people of mastery, decency, bravery, humanity and love as never before.
We need more lights of possibility. Leaders Without Titles.

Cheers to all..!!

Your Team Should Reflect You….

Good read! Wisely said: “Finding good players is easy. Getting them to play as a team is another story.”

Love Is My Only Addiction

Yesterday, we had a meeting and reflected on our roles in AmazinglyBrash & Co. We reflected on everything we could accomplish as one unit and we even questioned our roles in each others lives.
Every team will have to challenge one another to examine themselves to be a strong, effective team. We spoke about purpose, passion, commitment, leadership; we all had to dig deep and examine the sacrifices we would have to make to educate others to fight for healthier relationships…. Leadership comes with a price!!!!

“CUSTOMER SERVICES” PAST – PRESENT – FUTURE

Recently, we have started “Fun at Work” at our workplace. This includes different activities everyday. Day before yesterday, we had a write up activity and below is the write up that I shared. I hope that you enjoy reading it 🙂

 

An organization’s customer service past cannot be changed, no matter what. The ghost of customer service past haunts many organizations.
In past, it meant doling out smiles and occasional phone call from an upset customer. In the modern world, there’s a lot more to it. As technology & communication continue to evolve, the landscape of customer service has changed, and Instead of just calls and mail, customers can now reach by social media and live chat.
A personal experience: Whenever I purchase perfumes, I always go to the same place. Why? The real reason is CUSTOMER SERVICE! Specifically, a few small gestures such as someone always approaches me when I enter and helps me find what I need. This is the essence of “frugal wow”— small gestures that create lasting loyalty. That’s how customer service should be.
Tomorrow’s customers won’t be so accommodating rather demanding. They will be skeptical and quick to move on if they aren’t satisfied. They’ll prefer not to talk to “customer service.” Instead, they’ll want to connect with experts for problem solving.
Like DISNEY, you should focus on improving your experiences and optimizing the mundane. Learn from the past, act in the present, and change your customer service and customer experience future for the better.
