I would like to collaborate with Awez Darbar Bhansali

first_imgMumbai: Filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali has said that he would like to collaborate with budding choreographers Awez Darbar and Zaid Darbar for his upcoming film. Bhansali was interacting with the media at Awez, Zaid and Tejal Pimpley’s dance studio launch named ‘B You Academy’ on Wednesday in Mumbai. When asked, whether he would like to collaborate with Awez and Zaid for a film, Bhansali said: “Definitely, He (Awez) dances really well. I have seen his videos, so, I feel he has a quality to become choreograph for a film”. Awez and Zaid are sons of music composer Ismail Darbar with whom Bhansali has collaborated for several films in the past. Recalling his memories, Bhansali said: “Ismail and I are really good friends. I know him since last 20 years. We did a film called ‘Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam’ together and that time, Awez (Darbar) was 6-7 years old. He used to teach me dance on the sets of the movie”. Adding further, Bhansali said: “I have seen Awez and Zaid growing up since their childhood. I have seen their journey and today, they have opened up their dance school. So, it’s very proud moment for me and Ismail bhai. I really wish Zaid, Awez and Tejal all the best from my heart”. “It’s a lot of hard work and they have a lot of talent. I feel if Awez choreographs a film it would really be big thing for him,” he added. Bhansali’s last film ‘Padmaavat’ featured Shahid Kapoor, Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh in lead roles.last_img read more

BAE Systems to unveil robot stretcher designed to evacuate wounded troops from

Wounded soldiers could one day be evacuated from the battlefield by a robot stretcher.  A new remote-controlled battlefield vehicle that can be fitted to carry casualties will be unveiled in London next week.The Ironclad unmanned ground vehicle has been built by defence giant BAE Systems to take on some of the most dangerous jobs that soldiers face.The versatile electric-powered vehicle can currently be driven by wireless remote control, but will in future be fitted with artificial intelligence allowing it to navigate the battlefield on its own.Commanders can fit the chassis with a stretcher for casualty evacuation and the vehicle would make its own way back to an aid station, freeing up soldiers from stretcher-bearing duty.Alternatively, instead of a stretcher, the armoured chassis could be fitted with bomb disposal equipment, or cameras for risky reconnaissance missions. The vehicle could even be fitted with a machine gun to become a remote-controlled weapon, but BAE said it would always remain under human direction.Ironclad will be on display at the DSEI arms fair in London next week.Craig Fennell, future programmes director at BAE Systems Land, said: “Ironclad – while being a product in its own right – is also a step towards the battlefield of the future where we expect fleets of unmanned air and ground vehicles to work together, sharing situational awareness and pursuing combat objectives.“There will always be a human in the loop, but increasing use of autonomy and unmanned vehicles means they can focus on key decisions and have more options to avoid putting people in dangerous situations.”Advances in artificial intelligence and robotics mean autonomous vehicles will quickly come to play key roles in future conflicts, many technology experts believe.Last month more than 100 experts in the field called on the United Nations to ban the development of so called ‘killer robots’ that could open fire without human control.last_img read more
