Watch: Ranbir Kapoor wins the lip sync battle in ‘Main Badhiya Tu Bhi Badhiya’ from ‘Sanju’

The first song from the Sanjay Dutt biopic was released on Sunday.

The trailers for Rajkumar Hirani’s Sanju show Ranbir Kapoor nailing Sanjay Dutt’s persona and replicating an array of looks from various stages of the actor’s life. Another glimpse of Kapoor’s versatility is offered in the song Main Badhiya Tu Bhi Badhiya, released on Sunday. This is the first song to be released from the biopic.

In Main Badhiya Tu Bhi Badhiya, Kapoor proclaims that his father (Sunil Dutt, played by Paresh Rawal) has questioned his lip syncing abilities. He goes on to prove his father wrong by matching lip movements and facial expressions with not just a male singer but also a female one, playing both roles in a duet. The song also gives him ample room to show off his dancing skills. Another gender-bender ensues when Sonam Kapoor, who plays Dutt’s former girlfriend, sings along to the male vocals.

The lyrics centre on a conversation between a woman and her lover. While she urges him to marry her, he proclaims that he is a free spirit.

The music is by composer duo Rohan-Rohan, with lyrics by Puneet Sharma. Sonu Nigam and Sunidhi Chauhan provide the vocals.

The cost of setting up an employee-friendly office in Mumbai

And a new age, cost-effective solution to common grievances.

A lot has been theorised about employee engagement and what motivates employees the most. Perks, bonuses and increased vacation time are the most common employee benefits extended to valuable employees. But experts say employees’ wellbeing is also intimately tied with the environment they spend the bulk of the day in. Indeed, the office environment has been found to affect employee productivity and ultimately retention.

According to Gensler’s Workplace Index, workplace design should allow employees to focus, collaborate, learn and socialise for maximum productivity, engagement and overall wellbeing. Most offices lag on the above counts, with complaints of rows of cluttered desks, cramped work tables and chilled cubicles still being way too common.

But well-meaning employers wanting to create a truly employee-centric office environment meet resistance at several stages. Renting an office space, for example, is an obstacle in itself, especially with exorbitant rental rates prevalent in most business districts. The office space then needs to be populated with, ideally, ergonomic furniture and fixtures. Even addressing common employee grievances is harder than one would imagine. It warrants a steady supply of office and pantry supplies, plus optimal Internet connection and functioning projection and sound systems. A well-thought-out workspace suddenly begins to sound quite cost prohibitive. So, how can an employer balance employee wellbeing with the monthly office budget?

Co-working spaces have emerged as a viable alternative to traditional workspaces. In addition to solving a lot of the common problems associated with them, the co-working format also takes care of the social and networking needs of businesses and their employees.

WeWork is a global network of workspaces, with 10 office spaces in India and many more opening this year. The co-working giant has taken great care to design all its premises ergonomically for maximum comfort. Its architects, engineers and artists have custom-designed every office space while prioritising natural light, comfort, productivity, and inspiration. Its members have access to super-fast Internet, multifunction printers, on-site community teams and free refreshments throughout the day. In addition, every WeWork office space has a dedicated community manager who is responsible for fostering a sense of community. WeWork’s customised offerings for enterprises also work out to be a more cost-effective solution than conventional lease setting, with the added perks of WeWork’s brand of service.
