Aamir has shared this poster on Twitter as well as in Instagram yesterday, on the occasion of Valentine.

Talking of the movie, Lal Singh Chaddha is an adaptation of the English movie, Forrest Gump. The movie is estimated to be one of the costliest production of Aamir Khan’s movies and also as a much-awaited one after 3 idiots. Aamir Khan had announced the launch of this movie in Christmas 2020, earlier in his birthday in 2019. 

Earlier, Kareena has been spotted wearing a pink salwar-kameez and dupatta in the sets of Amritsar. In this picture, we see that Kareena is wearing no makeup as she shoots for the film.

Paralysed Producer Who Makes Music With His Eyes

Published

on

They say love for Music never dies. Pone, a beat maker who helped shape the sound of French hip-hop in the 1990s has proven this right.


Pone, whose real name is Guilhem Gallart, is living with motor neurone disease, also known as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). The devastating and incurable illness that disrupts the control of all the body’s muscles. But that didn’t stop him from continuing his passion for music!
This video refers to his life as a pre-motor neuron as drowsy is characteristic of Pone’s humility; his career was far from falling asleep. 
He has produced hits like Art De Rue, Sans Rémission and the hairstyle Mystère et Suspense.

 

 

Pone uses Ableton Live to make music. When his family saw a documentary about Stephen Hawking, they got inspired and thought why can’t Pone do this too? They found the software Hawking himself had created, and soon they got a screen permanently placed in front of him. It had a small device which accurately mapped his gaze. The eye-tracking technology, according to Wahiba, is “open to everyone; some geeks just use it for hell.” (Source: Fr24news)

 

Music
By using this tool, Pone was able to start writing sentences that his computer would read aloud which was enough to translate his thoughts into the outside world. Slowly, he started using his eyes which could function like a mouse and then he decided to work with the material of Kate Blush. He recorded the sound of his own breathing machine and intertwined it with the powerfully symbolic melody and lyrics of his song Respiration. In August last year, he put the Kate & Me online for free which was free for all who wanted to hear.

Kate & Me’s success definitely opens new opportunities for people living with motor neurone diseases. Pone has opened many ways to people with motor diseases and made himself an inspiration for many.
