Farhan Akhtar’s ‘Toofaan’ to storm TV screens

23

Mumbai, Oct 27 | After its OTT release, Farhan Akhtar-starrer ‘Toofaan’ will now reach out to an even wider base of the Indian audience with its world television premiere on Zee Cinema on October 31.

The film directed by maverick filmmaker Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra portrays the journey of an extortionist who transforms into a boxer. The film marks Mehra and Akhtar’s second collaboration after the National Award-winning ‘Bhaag Milkha Bhaag’.

Talking about his experience on working in the film, Farhan Akhtar who played the protagonist, said, “While working on ‘Toofaan’ I realised there are no shortcuts when you want to portray a character like Aziz. And through this experience I came to believe that there are no shortcuts in life. You have to persevere and keep challenging yourself.”

Adding further he said, “To showcase the character’s body transformation with utmost fidelity, I had to first put on a great deal of weight and then shed all of that to have a boxer’s physique. In short, there is nothing that should stop you if you have passion. That is the lesson of Aziz Ali’s journey. Don’t forget to watch the world television premiere of ‘Toofaan’ on Zee Cinema.”

The film which also stars Paresh Rawal, Mrunal Thakur, Mohan Agashe and Supriya Pathak Kapoor has been produced by Excel Entertainment and Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra Pictures.

San Francisco, Dec 6 | Musk hiring engineers to solve problems that affects people’s lives. Tesla founder and CEO Elon Musk on Monday tweeted that he is hiring Artificial Intelligence (AI) engineers who are passionate about solving day-to-day problems through AI.

“As always, Tesla is looking for hardcore AI engineers who care about solving problems that directly affect people’s lives in a major way,” Musk tweeted along with a link to apply for the job.

Interested candidates can apply by filling in fields like name, email, exceptional work done in software, hardware or AI, dropping their resume in the PDF format and hitting the Apply option.

As per the website, Tesla’s AI and Autopilot unit develops and deploys autonomy at scale in vehicles, robots and more.

“There is no need even to have a college degree at all, or even high school,” Musk said during an interview with the German automotive publication Auto Bild about his hiring preferences more broadly.

“If somebody graduated from a great university, that may be an indication that they will be capable of great things, but it’s not necessarily the case. If you look at, say, people like Bill Gates or Larry Ellison, Steve Jobs, these guys didna¿t graduate from college, but if you had a chance to hire them, of course that would be a good idea.”
