If you want to know what your message is, just sing it- Kenny Rogers By now everyone is well aware of the demise of this ingenious country singer, actor, and author and of course who could forget Kenny Rogers’ Roasters (his brand of chicken restaurants in the 1990s) I still remember the first time I came to Guwahati, to visit my grandpa to discover those old hips of him swaying side by side to a musical number. Back then, having a CD player means you are entitled to show it off. So I turned to my uncle and he laughed saying, “No one can stop my dad once Islands in the Stream plays.” Now frankly, if anyone calls me “musically dumb” I wouldn’t mind for I am. But I was a curious kid and I desperately wanted to know what made my usually rigid grandpa sway so much. Also, being…

An actor whose power packed performances made his name synonymous with the world of Assamese film and theatre. Among the many movies to his credit are Hiya Diya Niya, Barood, Nayak to name a few. Yes we are talking about Ravi Sharma. https://youtu.be/rciJm6cRHsU Team VibesMojo caught up with him for a quick chat and here are the edited excerpts of the interview: VM: Did you want to be an actor? Take acting as your career? Well, not in the initial stage of my life, but later on, I realised that probably God has, you know, created me to be a part of this because this is where I feel at home. I love my work and I also love the love I get from the people of Assam. I think it’s a huge responsibility because art and culture is not just something to be put in a watertight compartment and to…

There are a few prominent names in the Assamese film scenario whose name is synonymous with the entire industry and Zerifa Wahid is one such name.  She has innumerable movies to her credit, many of which have claimed national recognition. https://youtu.be/wiffVle4lrw Team VibesMojo had a chance to interact with her and here are the edited excerpts of the interview : VM: At the very outset we would like to know, did you ever think that you’d take acting as your career?
