THE POWER COUPLE


SAM THAKKAR & VAISHALI THAKKAR.

MESSAGE FROM THE MANAGEMENT OF
PERFECT GROUP OF COMPANIES






SAM THAKKAR VAISHALI THAKKAR
Group CEO Perfect Tax & Finance CEO
FunAsiA CMO

Hello folks, we had earlier announced that Funasia is now FunAsia Network after acquiring radio stations in Dubai. We
had acquired 106.2 Big FM from Zee Network in January this year and added two more popular frequencies – 107.1
and 97.8 – to our portfolio. The FM stations, previously operated by Shock Middle East, have been rebranded as Luv and
Beat FM, and will be headed by our Business Head, Sunny Ahuja and Program Director, a well-known radio veteran Digby
Taylor in Dubai.
We thought our listeners of 104.9FM FunAsia Radio would be interested to know what the contents of the stations are.
Beat 97.8 FM is a dance music radio station, with the brand position #1 for dance. The radio station is the only platform
in the region that hosts top international DJs and promotes dedicated content from local talents.
The majority of Beat 97.8’s listeners are Western and Arab expatriates followed by Asians and Emiratis. The audience is
multilingual with English as a first or second language. The presenters are from the UK, Lebanon, Philippines and the US,
and speak English, Arabic and Tagalog.
Luv 107.1, with the new brand position LUV will continue to be the top adult contemporary radio station in the UAE. With
the selection of on-air talent, content and music, Luv 107.1 targets international travelers and UAE residents with high-
disposable incomes.
You can listen to these stations on our ‘Radio Fan’ App as well. With 7 million listeners in America and 6 million listeners
outside of the US, FunAsia Network now has 14 million radio listeners.
We feel that radio is by far the most relevant medium to connect with audiences and business today. We believe in the
future of radio and have plans for expansion in London as well, staying in tune to our vision of making FunAsia the #1
South Asian Radio Station in the world.

Hello friends, in October
we have already started
to feel the changes in
the temperatures. Fall
has begun and soon our
celebrations and festivities
will begin too. We still are very unsure what
this year holds, and how far will we be able to
stretch ourselves to enjoy and make the best of
our festivals. However, at FunAsia we are trying
to keep things as normal as possible. Enjoy yet

Director Maqbool Khan


on




Khaali Peeli


Filmmaker Maqbool Khan, who will make his
Bollywood debut with the film, Khaali Peeli, says,
“I am happy that the film has come out exactly the
way I have seen Mumbai in my years of growing
up as an individual.”
Khaali Peeli features Ananya Panday as a young
woman on the run who ends up in Ishaan
Khatter’s taxi.

He added that Mumbai plays an important
role in the storyline. “It’s a fun Bollywood
commercial entertainer that has action,
romance, humor and thriller
elements in it. I think this film will
take us back to the time of old
Mumbai, which was known as
Bombay in the nineties. We have

tried to show the underbelly of
Mumbai in the film. In fact, the
title of the film is typical Mumbai
slang and all characters of the
film including Ananya and
Ishaan’s characters have a
certain Mumbaiya tone and
mannerism. The film has the
nineties vibe of Mumbai yet
we have tried to present it in
a contemporary setup,” said
the filmmaker.

Ishaan Khatter and Ananya
Panday starrer ‘Khaali-Peeli’
will feature an interesting
third character, played by
the iconic ‘cabs of Mumbai’.
Director Maqbool Khan was
keen to add a ‘Mumbai’ flavor

in Mumbai, this cab became an important character of the
narrative.” While Ishaan essays the role of a street-smart
cabbie, Ananya Panday promises to complement his role
with her ‘Bambaiya slang’.
Much impressed with his lead team, Maqbool Khan
stated, “Ishaan and Ananya are young, energetic,
and smart actors to work with. Ishaan has performed
all his stunts himself, no doubles were used. Ananya
also did her own action scenes. She is very polished
and young. For this role, I wanted someone
who was rustic, who can deliver the Mumbai
language and she invested in a workshop
for it. Everyone on the sets would speak to

her in the colloquial Mumbai language and
not English. It was a blessing to work with
them.” Narrating an interesting incident
from the shoot, Maqbool Khan added,
“Ishaan and Anaya are very punctual and
dedicated actors. We had to request 4000-
5000 people to empty a lane in Mumbai
for a particular shot. And both these actors
were on time. If not for Ishaan and Ananya,
it would have been very difficult for me to
complete this film.”


While Ananya worked on her language,
Ishaan put on some muscle for his rustic
cab driver character. “Ishaan had to look
like a macho young man and I wanted to
break his boyish charm. He worked hard
on his body and put on muscle-mass of 10-
11 kilos without any supplements,” stated
Maqbool. Interestingly, the filmmaker always
wanted to cast Ishaan and Ananya. “I had
Ishaan in my mind when we were considering
actors to narrate the script to. He loved the
idea and jumped on it immediately. As for
Ananya, I had seen ‘Student of the Year 2’
and she had impressed me with her comic
timing. She took a little while to say yes
because she was a bit apprehensive, but
soon came on board.”

10 TIPS FOR HEALTHY




AUTUMN EATING




The fresh produce of summer makes it easier (aside from the lure of ice cream) to
maintain a healthy diet. Plus, during the warmer months, our bodies naturally want
lighter foods. When the weather turns cool, your body’s natural instinct is to store fat.
And delicious stuff, like apple cider, pumpkin spice lattes, pies and cinnamon doughnuts,
is everywhere. With some common sense and our quick guide, you can indulge in favorite
fall treats without your wellness goals going into hibernation.

1 Continue eating local



plenty of healthy, plant-based options are still available after
watermelon season ends. Snack on apples and look for
recipes that use root vegetables like sweet potatoes, parsnips, carrots
and squash.

2 Embrace citrus season


don’t forget about produce that isn’t local! Citrus fruits, plus
bananas, pineapples and avocados contain Vitamin C, a
must during cold season.
3 Enjoy the flavors of the season

7 Try winter greens

you know that certain greens grow during the winter? Health food staple
kale is one, plus Swiss chard, collards, mustard greens and beet greens. Cooking
them will help temper any bitter taste.

8 Plan ahead



this holds true in any season, but especially during the busy back-to-

Instant Pot are your best fall and winter pals.

9 Incorporate nuts and nut butters



nuts contain healthy fat, and they’re a cold-season favorite. Snack on
pecans, almonds or walnuts. Just be sure to measure out your servings.

10 Have a piece of pie!



Fall treats are meant to be enjoyed, so have at them in moderation.
Try a smaller piece of pumpkin pie, a tall skim pumpkin spice latte or

Emraan Hashmi is a merciless crime lord in Harami


The makers released the trailer of Emraan Hashmi-starrer Harami. In the trailer,
we see a group of orphaned teenage thieves who pick pockets for a living. They
are led by an English-speaking crime lord, played by Emraan Hashmi.
One day, one of the teenage boys steals money from a middle-class man, who
commits suicide after being robbed. The teenage boy then meets the daughter of
the man he had robbed and has a change of heart. Seeking for redemption, he
sets on a journey to correct things.
Harami is directed by Shyam Madiraju. The film is all set to premiere at Busan
International Film Festival 2020 which will be held between October 21 and

India were originally valuable items of trade
and were as precious as gems and gold.
Spices were carefully transported by sea to
European countries and the spice trade was
tightly controlled. History reveals that a search
for the source of spices also led explorers to

As the world slowly opened up, Indian

Dreams and desires
Play hide and seek
We climb the ladder
But only to desire more


But the sage has said
“Pray abundantly and
Create good karma”
And yes in the end
You and I will return
Back to the Light
From where we came
So why not live in light now
Why dwell in the darkness
... of apathy and selfishness
Of greed and foolishness


The fire in our hearts is there
To warm one another with love
It’s not to kill and plunder our minds
with raging hate and prejudice


Let’s aspire for dreams that unite
Let’s climb the ladder and cease all fights
Let the sage see the tree grow as a giver of solace and shade
Let us stop the hate and build a happy fate

O Bird!





O Bird where do you fly so high

The voice that twitters
The wings that flutter

The feathers that quiver

Your being elevates mine into the sky

So high-so high that I want to reach out and fly
Into the deep sky- into the blueness of its depth

Into the soft clouds-into the purity of their touch

Feeling the breeze piercing though me

O bird- take me away CONTRIBUTION
Make me the little feather beneath your fortunate eye

So I may explore this world with you

A paradise of mountains, valleys and oceans

A forest of hopes emerge within me
O bird-with you I want to fly so high

That even though I hit myself against the Rocky Mountains

It will be a pleasure to die.

“Nobody has the power to take

two steps together; you can

take only one step at a time”





“This pain is not to make you sad, remember. Thats where people go on missing….
This pain is just to make you more alert–because people become alert only when the
arrow goes deep into their heart and wounds them. ”


“Life repeats itself mindlessly – unless you become mindful, it will go on repeating like
a wheel.”


“Experience life in all possible ways — good-bad, bitter-sweet, dark-light, summer-
winter. Experience all the dualities. Don’t be afraid of experience, because the more
experience you have, the more mature you become..”
