Vinay Pathak learnt art of weaving for ‘Gour Hari Dastaan’

Standard

vinay-pathak-759Is this about weaving – not really – but it struck me as a nice little filler whilst I’m busy reorganising myself, the blog, and Julz Craft Supplies – smile

For regular ebayers, please note that I am changing around my ebay accounts.  I have been selling most of the craft supplies on my JULZWEAVING ACCOUNT, which has been really busy – BUT – it is a private sellers account and I have a limit on the number of items I can sell, and have had to keep juggling the numbers every month.

My long standing Business account with ebay was called 85solway, and I didn’t realise I could change the name, so I have been selling, fabric, giftware and odds and ends there.  HOWEVER I did a bit of research and it took me only two minutes to change the name to JULZCRAFTSUPPLIES!  

So, I am gradually moving items over there, where I can list as much as I want – I just have to pay for the listings, instead of getting most of them free!  I have been wondering whether to make another major change and  open an ebay shop – but I think I’ll take it one step at a time!

Back to the subject of this blog – hope my Indian readers appreciate this – hope the film is good – smile…..

The film, which also features actors Konkona Sen Sharma, Ranvir Shorey and Tanisshtha Chatterjee, will release on August 14 — a day before the country’s Independence Day.

Actor Vinay Pathak was made to learn the art of weaving for his role in “Gour Hari Dastaan: The Freedom File”.

As part of his preparation for the film, director Ananth Mahadevan made the actor learn how to weave cloth. And Vinay learnt it from Oriya freedom fighter Gour Hari Das, on whose life story the film is based.

Das had learnt the art during the country’s freedom struggle. “I learnt the art of weaving during my movie filming for ‘Gour Hari Dastaan’. I had never thought that Ananth will make me weave as a part of role preparation,” Vinay said in a statement. “Special ‘charkhas’ from Sabarmati were called for this. I was more surprised on the teacher as it was none other than Das-ji. He learnt this art during the time of the independence struggle. He really showed patience and taught me this well,” added the actor. The film, which also features actors Konkona Sen Sharma, Ranvir Shorey and Tanisshtha Chatterjee, will release on August 14 — a day before the country’s Independence Day.
