Shapoorji Pallonji Group commemorates


Shapoorji Pallonji Group commemorates 60 glorious years of Mughal-e-Azam   

Mughal-e-Azam, an iconic Indian period film, commemorates 60 momentous years since its release on the 5th August, 1960. The multiple award-winning historical saga, celebrated for one of the finest performances in Indian cinema, was directed by talented filmmaker K. Asif and produced by Shapoorji Pallonji Group.

The project faced multiple hurdles during its making, forcing its temporary abandonment. The political tensions and communal rioting surrounding India's partition in 1947 stalled the film's first version. Shiraz Ali, the producer, migrated to Pakistan. In the 1950s, Mr. Shapoorji Pallonji Mistry salvaged the film and came onboard to produce the film, despite no knowledge about film production. Mr. Shapoorji Pallonji had an inclination towards history, and hence wanted to create a landmark historical film. The film cost Rs. 1.5 crores in 1960, ten times the cost of an average film in those days. Shoot commenced in the early 50s with the production canvas involving war scenes with 2,000 camels, 4,000 horses and 8,000 Indian military men.

Mughal-e-Azam was the first black-and-white Hindi film to be digitally coloured and the first to be given a theatrical re-release. Shapoorji Pallonji’s grandson, Mr. Shapoor Pallonji Mistry, the present Chairman of the group, undertook the restoration and colourization of Mughal-e-Azam, originally only 15% shot in colour. Original music composer Naushad Ali recreated the six track surround sound version for the colour release. In 2004, the colour version of the film was re-released and it was also a complete commercial success.






On this occasion, Mr. Deepesh Salgia, creative visionary of Mughal-e-Azam who also holds a position as the CEO and Director at Grandview Estates Pvt. Ltd. (A part of Shapoorji Pallonji group) states, “We are proud to continue the legacy of the group by commemorating the movie’s 60 years. Mughal-E-Azam is India’s finest artwork and has created new benchmarks in cinema as well as in theatre production. The Shapoorji Pallonji Group takes this opportunity to thank Director K. Asif, and legendary actors Prithviraj Kapoor, Dilip Kumar, Madhubala and the Creative & Technical teams of the original version, the colour version and the musical play. Their immense contribution makes this work of art relevant even today, after 60 years of its release. The Shapoorji Pallonji Group is proud of the love and appreciation the movie has received.”

In 2016, Shapoorji Pallonji Group produced the theatrical version of the film, Mughal-e-Azam; the Play directed by Feroz Abbas Khan. The musical play has also run to packed houses across Asia. Till date, the musical play has had 180 performances across eight Asian cities. It has won seven Broadway India world awards.

The Mughal-e-Azam film was itself a remake of the theatrical play ‘Anarkali’, written by Imtiaz Ali Taj. The popular epic love saga is remembered for its tragic love story between the Mughal prince Salim and court dancer  Anarkali.

·         Small businesses can collect and pay digitally even without a bank account
·         Enters issuance business with Mswipe Moneyback Card to help merchants earn as they spend
·         One-time digital KYC for hassle free and instant signup

Mswipe announced today the launch of Bank Box, a digital acceptance and payment solution designed to meet the cost-centric needs of MSMEs and merchants, as well as provide for a seamlessly integrated experience. Through this launch, Mswipe aims to pave the way for a futuristic payment solution platform and address key challenges that merchants and MSMEs face, with recurring costs on POS terminals like PoS rentals and Merchant Discount Rate (MDR).

Mswipe, India’s largest merchant acquirer with a network of 6.75 lakh POS and 1.1 million QR merchants, set out with the vision to build a cutting edge product – one that combines their acquiring and issuing platforms into a one-stop-shop, “Bank Box”, which enables easy signup, instant activation of the terminal and lifetime zero rental and zero effective MDR for merchants.

Manish Patel, Founder and CEO, Mswipe said, “COVID-19 has significantly impacted the earnings of small businesses, which in turn has led to curbed expenditures from their end. As a market innovator, Mswipe is helping MSMEs and merchants control costs incurred while accepting digital payments and further incentivize them to make digital payments. Essentially, Mswipe’s Bank Box facilitates small, medium and micro businesses to break into the digital ecosystem at the lowest possible TCO and sign up - even if they do not have a bank account.”

With a one-time digital KYC, businesses can choose between Bank Box Go - a POS solution with zero rental and zero MDR or Bank Box Lite - a QR solution with 0 rental and 1% cashback on all transactions and instantly go live. In both offerings a merchant gets a UPI QR and a Moneyback Card. Bank Box Go additionally provides an affordable mPOS capable of accepting chip + pin and contactless card payments. For Bank Box Go merchants have to pay a one-time fee of Rs. 4,000 plus taxes while for Bank Box Lite, they pay only Rs.199 plus taxes.

Sameer Hoda, President, Strategy and Operations, Mswipe said, “With Bank Box we have democratized the digital acceptance and payments ecosystem for the smallest of businesses by giving them a choice. With Mswipe now both an acquirer and issuer, we have provided an end-to-end digital enablement of MSMEs and merchants and empowered them to join the Digital Bharat movement.”

While mPOS allows acceptance of multiple modes of payments including UPI, Visa, Mastercard and American Express, mQR accepts payments from more than 150 UPI and mobile banking apps like PayTM, Axis Bank and BHIM among others. To spend digitally, merchants can load their Mcard with up to Rs. 1,00,000 per month.

Mswipe is targeting merchants with an average daily digital collection of Rs. 2,000 - Rs.2,500 in tier 3-4 markets and Rs. 8,000 - Rs. 10,000 in Metro and semi-urban areas.

OPPO strengthens footprint in

OPPO strengthens footprint in Western Europe;
launches new ad campaign with FC Barcelona

 

World-leading smart device brand OPPO debuted its latest ad spot aimed at brand-building in Europe, highlighting its work with FC Barcelona (Barҫa) as the team seeks to be the final 8 among all European elites. The campaign punctuates the company’s continued market expansion, having added Germany, Portugal, Belgium and Romania to its European portfolio as of last month.

This builds on an already successful five-year partnership with the squad, which is the longest-running cooperation between a tech brand and a European football club.


OPPO wants Barҫa fans to “Go for it”
OPPO is hosting a season-long digital content series, including a virtual Q&A session with first team players,
a social campaign and a new commercial dubbed “Go for it.” (See here: https://youtu.be/Kam-Ye03JHM)



The ad spot takes viewers into a young fan’s world as she dribbles her way to victory, casting off naysayers
and self-doubt as she prepares to join a men’s match. Splicing action shots with those of Barҫa players,
we come to see that we’re viewing the celebratory shoulder raise not from the stands, but by watching the
action virtually through the Find X2. Available in around 10 European markets, the 5G device series
delivers an all-around powerful 5G flagship experience, with one of the most advanced screens in the

with #CheerforBarҫa. Selected fan messages were displayed on Camp Nou’s LED signboards to encourage
the players during the restart of the La Liga season played behind closed doors. The campaign then shifts
to echo the ad video, encouraging fans to tackle their own dreams and ambitions with the spirit of
#GoForIt, regardless of the barriers they may encounter.

Fans can also watch a Q&A with the football squad’s defenders Gerard Piqué, Nélson Semedo,
Clément Lenglet and forwards Luis Suarez and Martin Braithwaite  - where the players shared
their thoughts about the journey and answered questions collected by Barça and OPPO from fans here.

In addition to the continuance of the FC Barcelona partnership, OPPO maintains its tennis partnerships
with Roland-Garros and Wimbledon and added the Boston Marathon. Leveraging the association with
these international sports partnerships drives OPPO’s increasing global presence and resonance with local
fans.
