Vikrant: I am playing this character called Shyamal Chatterjee a 23-year-old guy from a small village in West Bengal He is very sharp and intelligent who likes writing and reading and at the same time some conflicted ideas are constantly running in his mind If you actually ask me about the film it is an interpolation of human relationships which is set in 1979 specifically the era telling about how people live in a society and the relationships between them And the story that we are telling through “Shutu” the boy’s perspective is very challenging because its a trilingual film – Hindi English and Bengali – and lot of the dialogues are also colossal The way we converse in our daily lives It is also a kind of challenge for me to get my hands right on Bangla for which Konkona and Tillotama are helping me with it We will be shooting for the film starting this January 27 till March 10 Ques: After doing supporting roles in Lootera and Dil Dhadakne Do you have landed yourself with a meaty role in this film How does it feel working as the lead Vikrant: It feels good I would be lying if I would say that I never wanted to be a lead actor But at the same time I would say it’s a lot of responsibility also it’s too much responsibility There are total 100 people in the unit and a lot is dependent on me The story is being told through you and it is a challenge and I as an individual I think I can perform better under challenge So I am really excited for that and at the same time it feels good to be a protagonist in a story whether it is a TV or a film because you get lot of creative space for yourself And the best thing is that I had never thought in my life that a National Award winning artiste like Konkona would become a director and I would be playing the lead character in that story And then there are amazing souls like Om Puri Tanuja Kalki Koechlin Ranvir Shorey Tillotama Shome Gulshan Devaiah and all these guys are masters of their arts While we haven’t shot for the film yet we have done workshops and it was a good indication that how it’s going to be It will going to be lots of fun also I am in safe hands and probably they will get the best out of me Ques: How different was it shooting for ‘Dil Dhadakne Do’ and Gunj since both movies are entirely from different genres Vikrant: That is something which I am not bothered doing kind My first film Lootera was again a period film on a very massive scale and it is was a challenge again and then I did Dil Dhadakne Do which was an outright Bollywood commercial film The experience over there was very different because we were travelling for three months outside India We were on a cruise we ate the best of food we had lot of fun It was a fun loving film and then right after I did ‘Lipstick Under My Burkha’ with Prakash Jha productions which I shot in Bhopal So it’s amazing that people have faith in me most importantly You sense a feel of achievement and trust when people like Konkona Vikramaditya Motwane Prakash Jha Zoya Akhtar trust you And I am glad that I have done different genres and different films and I hope it continues the spree So it’s amazing to be experimental Ques: Do you feel that ‘Dil Dhadakne Do’ helped you earn recognition in the industry Vikrant: Every single thing I have done in my life in the last 12 years be it Doordarshan TV shows it has helped me reach where I am I would not entirely say that because of Dil Dhadakne Do and Lootera I got this I got DDD and Lootera because of my TV shows So you can’t take away all that Balika Vadhu helped me get another work and my other work helped me get Balika Vadhu It is a chain reaction that happens People have been kind enough in recognising me and appreciating my work among some of the biggest names in the industry today And the biggest compliment that I have got was when Aamir Khan called me at 230am in the night and told me that he saw ‘Dil Dhadakne Do’ and said that you have done very good job in the film and we will meet up someday and work with you all the very best It feels good with it Ques: So did you met Aamir after that Vikrant: I couldn’t meet him as I am busy and he is also busy If God wishes we will meet someday Ques: Would you like to work with him Vikrant: Why not I would love to act but more importantly I would love to be directed by him and that will be a different scene altogether Ques: How was it working with the likes of Priyanka Farhan Ranveer Anil Kapoor Vikrant: It was amazing It was a different experience altogether It was very surreal experience because these guys are such wonderful artists that we all are aware of it We have seen them for years but these guys are unbelievable human beings So real so sensitive and so honest and after knowing them personally it feels that whatever these people have achieved they certainly deserve it because they are such honest people Ques: Do you feel ‘Gunj’ will be a path breaking film for you Vikrant: Well actually I have never thought of this It’s a good film it will eventually end up being path breaking film for everyone for my first time director Konkona my first time producer Abhishek Chaubey Honey Trehan and my first film as a lead We are not making any pathbreaking film it’s only that we have a good story and we are going to tell it in a good way And if you check the history the most path breaking and outstanding films were very simple So we are just trying to make ‘Gunj’ and the rest is up to you and the audiences If it becomes good then it is good thing Ques: You are also foraying into film production with 35mm Is it something you always wanted to do Vikrant: Yes yes even if I am being greedy I always wanted to create content and show it to the people I have few stories and ideas which I think I am not bad enough to tell the people I always believed in curating content and the only way to do in our country is by turning producer So then I thought lets turn producer and see how it goes And I also intend to produce feature films someday So 35mm is a short film which is in collaboration with Nivedita Basu So both of us got together we made a good story we thought of making a short film out of it we found the company and thats how it happened The film is shot and finished and I have submitted it to festivals Neeraj Kabi has acted in it Priyanka Bose is in the film and we have one of the finest technicians in the country working on it It’s an amazing feeling meeting the right people and collaborating with them is a different high altogether I thinkThe idea is to make good short films submit it them to festivals beacuse it is a very different platform altogether And I am someone who loves freedom of expression which is more in festivals Whatever is in your mind whatever you have it on your paper you show it to people and it is also a good ground to understand because festivals they have boundaries where world competes with you You learn a lot from different forms of cinema and you get to interact with the people from different parts of the world You get to understand different mind sets of the people and its an open and approachable platform and I feel comfortable there Ques: Who is your dream director that you would like to collaborate with Vikrant: Aamir Khan is one of the them and I am dying to work with Vishal Bhardwaj and Imtiaz Ali And if you ask me if I want to work with only one of them then it has to be Vishal Bhardwaj because he makes one of the finest films Be it Maqbool Omkara Kaminey even if he has not directed but the

Henderson ties up Gartmore takeover

first_imgWednesday 12 January 2011 8:35 pm Share SHARES in Anglo-Australian fund manager Henderson were up 9.26 per cent yesterday, after it announced it would buy troubled rival Gartmore.The deal sees shareholders receive two Henderson shares for every three Gartmore shares, valuing the company at £335m.Around 63 per cent of Gartmore shareholders have so far approved the deal, after the boards of both companies unanimously recommended a takeover. A significant number of Gartmore’s fund managers have been locked into the deal, representing 84 per cent of the company’s assets under management (AUM).The combined team will now hold around £78bn AUM, making it one of the largest UK retail asset managers. Three key Gartmore fund managers remain in talks over joining Henderson, despite its takeover team having worked closely with the Gartmore team since November, a source close to the deal said. However, Henderson is said to be confident the remaining fund managers will join as the two firms integrate.Some analysts have approached the news with caution, warning investors could continue to redeem their assets in a continuation of the troubles suffered by Gartmore.David McCann, analyst at Numis said: “The management assumption [AUM] will stay where they are is extremely aggressive.“There is a whole raft of reasons why money will continue to [walk out] the door. People don’t like uncertainty, particularly when its people handling their money.”However, McCann rated Henderson shares “hold” due to the potential lift in share price from the takeover.Gartmore’s woes started after the departure of influential fund managers Guillaume Rambourg and Roger Guy last year, which contributed to plummeting share prices and investors withdrawing funds.Its outflows in the fourth quarter were £4.8bn, of which £3.1bn related to the European large cap team formerly run by Guy and Rambourg.The company’s share price dropped by more than half from its initial 2009 flotation price over the course of last year to as low as 88.5p per share last week. Yesterday’s takeover news saw Gartmore shares lift to 103p per share.And sources close to the deal believe any risk of contagion following the departure of Guy and Rambourg has now passed.Chief executive of Henderson Andrew Formica said: “The acquisition of Gartmore is a great opportunity for Henderson.“Gartmore has a highly complementary strategy and stable of products to that of Henderson. Its recent travails should not overshadow the fact that Gartmore is one of the best known managers in UK fund management.” Tags: NULL KCS-content by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesBrake For ItThe Most Worthless Cars Ever MadeBrake For ItBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBeAlphaCute30 Rules That All “Hells Angels” Have To FollowAlphaCuteDefinitionDesi Arnaz Kept This Hidden Throughout The Filming of ‘I Love Lucy’DefinitionTaonga: The Island FarmThe Most Relaxing Farm Game of 2021.

Be fearful when others are greedy”. This is what the Oracle of Omaha once famously said to his shareholders.Buffett’s investmentShortly after the Lehman Brothers’ collapse Buffett bought top blue-chip securities, including those of Goldman Sachs and Bank of America.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…That time was really tough for banks, and many were close to going bankrupt. Central banks all over the world cut interest rates, to zero in some cases. Governments bailed out major banks and took extreme fiscal measures to save their national economies.Buffett’s investment paid off very nicely. He took advantage of the panic and bought ‘too big to fail’ banks at record low prices. Bank of America’s shares became almost 10 times more expensive since the Great Recession. Goldman Sachs’s stock appreciated more than five times.Crisis causesThe causes of the 2008–2009 crisis were totally different from today’s market sell-off.The main reasons were the mortgage crisis and the reckless investment methods banks, insurance companies, and hedge funds were using. There were very high levels of personal and corporate debt. Moreover, many investment companies clearly lacked proper diversification.The situation in the US had a dramatic effect on other countries, including the UK. This was due to many financial organisations having exposure to high-risk US mortgage-backed securities.   Today’s market panicToday, we find ourselves in a similar panic situation, although the causes of this sell-off are different. Shares of major banks have plunged. The UK government announced a £330bn support package for small businesses and said that it is prepared “to do whatever it takes”.The Bank of England also announced that it would provide commercial banks with £190bn in extra money to ensure they have sufficient liquidity and are able to support small businesses.The share prices of the banks I will mention below reacted positively after this decision was announced. However, they quickly erased all their gains, as coronavirus panic and a no-deal Brexit fears hang in the air. Nonetheless, the Bank of England’s willingness to support the financial sector is encouraging.Top banksI think the banks mentioned below have merit as investments, despite the current difficult situation, because they are sure to survive:Lloyds’ recent earnings were a bit discouraging. But this resulted from one-off charges relating to payment protection insurance. The bank has been aggressively cutting costs by closing some offices, reducing staff, and encouraging customers to access the banks’ services online. These measures, of course, will also help during this coronavirus crisis.The bank’s price-to-earnings ratio (P/E) is near a record low of 8. The dividend yield is now close to 10%, and the share price is hovering near a 52-week low.HSBC came up with a restructuring plan and recently appointed a new CEO of its business in China. The bank’s earnings decreased by more than 50% in 2019 compared to the year before. However, the P/E is almost 17 and the dividend of 50 GBX is not adequately covered by 2019 earnings of 30 GBX per share.Barclays is the only one of the three whose earnings increased between 2018 and 2019. EPS (earnings per share) rose from 21.9 to 24.4 GBX, making the P/E ratio a little bit over 3. The current dividend yield is 12%. The bank considers its cost-cutting initiative to be its top priority. I would like to receive emails from you about product information and offers from The Fool and its business partners.

The Standard Life share price is up 34% in 6 months. Should I buy now?

first_img Enter Your Email Address UK stocks have taken a hit over the last year with the impact of the pandemic, but many have recovered recently as part of a stock market rally. Whether this rally can be sustained or is part of a bubble is up for debate, but I still see opportunities in the market at the moment.During turbulent times, I tend to look towards companies with a long and stable history of weathering difficult economic conditions. There are few in the FTSE 100 that have been around as long as Standard Life Aberdeen (LSE:SLA).5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…The Standard Life share price is now 34% higher than it was six months ago. While the shares have only gained 1% in 12 months, given the overall state of the Footsie during that time the shares’ performance is better than average.So would I buy Standard Life shares today for my portfolio?Strong and stableStandard Life has been around a long time. The company was first founded in 1825 and provides asset management, insurance, and savings services to both individuals and corporate bodies.Historically speaking, the company has not provided great long-term returns for investors. The share price has returned a loss over the last five years despite its recent rally. Investors don’t seem to have been convinced by the 2017 merger between Standard Life and Aberdeen Asset Management.Costs and competition have both been rising over the last number of years, which haven’t exactly helped the company’s bottom line. Profits for the company’s first half last year were 30% lower than the year before.So what has been driving the Standard Life share price higher in recent months?Broker actionOne reason could be that analysts at both JP Morgan and Berenberg upgraded their broker recommendations for the company. JP Morgan said there were several opportunities to close the ‘value gap’ between Standard Life and its competitors, including a reduction in dividends. The company currently has one of the highest dividend yields in the FTSE 100 at roughly 7%.Berenberg analysts also recommended a dividend cut so the company can focus on earnings growth, while upgrading the stock to ‘buy’ from ‘hold’.Important decisions will need to be made by new CEO Stephen Bird. Standard Life clearly needs to focus more on growth, but cutting the dividend could put off potential investors as well. How the new management deals with that dilemma will have an impact on the share price going forward.There is the potential for mergers and acquisitions to fuel growth, and management has indicated that it will consider this option.That said, I will need more convincing of the company’s ability to drive the share price higher in the long term. A key metric for Standard Life is assets under management, which has been falling for some time. Its most recent earnings report had their assets under management at £511bn.Until this heads in the right direction I won’t be buying the Standard Life share price for my portfolio. The Standard Life share price is up 34% in 6 months. Should I buy now? conorcoyle has no position in any of the shares mentioned. The Motley Fool UK has no position in any of the shares mentioned.
