of Belarus drubbed unseeded opponent Dalila Jakupovic of Slovenia in straight sets in a one-sided final to win her first WTA singles crown at the $125000 L&T Mumbai Open tennis tournament on Sunday The 19-year-old from Minsk ranked 96 stood tall and used her power-packed forehand and big serves to completely overwhelm her hapless opponent 6-2 6-3 in just 64 minutes to walk away with the winner’s purse of $20000 and 160 WTA points Aryna Sabalenka (right) receives the winner’s trophy from Amruta Fadnavis Mumbai Open The 24-year-old Jakupovic ranked 265 and with 5 ITF titles under her belt including the one clinched in Aurangabad had to be satisfied with the runners-up prize money of $11000 and 95 WTA points to her credit Sabalenka who boasts of a Fed Cup win over current US Open champion Sloane Stephens this year in the inter-nations final broke her Slovenian rival twice in the 2nd and 8th games to run away with the opening set in just 31 minutes even before the stands got filled at the Cricket Club of India courts Screaming her way after every serve or hard-hit point Sabalenka had a brief hiccup in the second set as she dropped her serve in the opening game before she bounced back to break back in the 4th game to restore parity She then broke Jakupovics serve decisively in the 8th game to take a 5-3 lead and then served for the match and title just inside the hour Jakupovic raised visions of a fight-back briefly when she secured a break-point with an excellent lob but it was a false dawn as Sabalenka who has already won four ITF singles crowns including a $25000 title in Pune two years ago and had lost to Russian Grand Slam champion Maria Sharapova in the Tianjin Open final last month saved the break-point with a second service winner The 182m tall Belarussian who had risen to a career-high ranking of 76 last month then went to match-point with another strong serve and won the game set and the singles title when Jakupovic hit her forehand long The 26-year-old Jakupovic from Jesenice in Slovenia also served double-faults at crucial times and had a weak second serve that was taken full advantage of by her younger opponent who mercilessly killed it While Sabalenka served three aces as compared to her rival who came up with two she served only one double-fault while Jakupovic served four Sabalenka won 1 out of 2 break-points while her rival was successful with just one out of five In the opening set Sabalenka quickly jumped to a 3-0 lead before her rival could even settle down When she led 4-2 Jakupovic had a chance to break back but the Belarussian saved three break points and then went 5-2 up with a big serve followed by a volley winner Jakupovic on the other hand started the next must-win game in the set with a double-fault and was down set-point following a splendid forehand on-the-run winner by Sabalenka who then broke the Slovenians serve when Jakupovic buried her forehand into the net Sabalenka dropped her serve much to everyones surprise in the very next game at the start of the second set but broke back in the fourth She then broke Jakupovics serve again in the 8th game with a forehand shot deep into her rivals backhand corner that was put out This was the final game in which the teenager was trailing a bit and saved a break-point at 30-40 with the help of her strong serve and then clinched the match and title on her first match-point "It was not a good match She played very good tennis on a high level She tried to beat me but I was aggressive and it allowed me to take the pressure off me" said Sabalenka "The win will help me get a get a direct entry into the Australian Open main draw It will be easier for me to play there I will now take a week’s break spend time with friends and family and resume my pre-season training after that" she said About her screaming after every point she said it helps in her game "I have been doing it for the last 13 years since I started playing at the age of six" "Playing here in India felt like being at home with the weather more or less like at home People are very friendly and nice More importantly I enjoy eating the cheese-garlic naan" Sabalenka said "When I was coming to India from Taipei I was thinking I would get another opportunity to have garlic-naan I am eating it after 2 years Its spicy but not too much like some other food back home" she

to carry her form into the event Jhulan who has come out of an injury will also look to make a mark as she is India’s highest wicket-taker in T20s with 44 scalps and a decent lower-order bat with a strike rate of 9967 In the bowling department apart from Jhulan slow left-hand orthodox bowler Ekta Bisht and Anuja Patil will be itching to go hard at the opponents Ekta was the highest wicket-taker with seven wickets against Sri Lanka and since 2014 WT20 she has taken 11 wickets in 7 matches and jumped to 2nd spot in India’s highest wicket-takers list behind Jhulan Anuja finished as the second highest wicket-taker with five scalps and the third highest run-getter with 56 runs against Sri Lanka On the other hand Jahanara Alam-led Bangladesh side is determined to make a positive impression

as cannily and candidly as Mahesh Bhatt (Source: Express Archive Photo) Top News Few filmmakers in the history of cinema have exploited their private life for public consumption and commercial gain as cannily and candidly as Mahesh Bhatt Bhatt saab as he is fondly called knows how to recycle his much-documented personal life in the service of entertainment While his headline-grabbing affair with Parveen Babi has inspired Arth and Phir Teri Kahani Yaad Aayee all the way down to Woh Lamhe almost all his films are thinly-veiled autobiographies Finally when faced with the risk of having exhausted all his typical tricks he wrote Hamari Adhuri Kahani last year This time digging deeper into the closet for skeletal remains of the love triangle between his filmmaker father Nanabhai Bhatt his Shia Muslim mother and his stepmother Raised single-handedly by his mother the firebrand Mahesh grew up as he puts it in ‘the home of sin’ Nanabhai stayed with his first wife and visited only infrequently ‘Keep the wolf from the door’ – issued through clenched teeth for dramatic effect – is Mr Bhatt’s stock phrase while describing the traumatic fledgling years “I came to filmmaking not to give wings to my creative flights of fancy but to earn a livelihood” he has said on many occasions a point he never fails to emphasise and re-emphasise in all his interviews Film Director Mahesh Bhatt behind the camera (Source: Express archive photo) We may not realise it but Mahesh Bhatt made his debut in the 1970s But it was with the female-centric Arth in 1982 that he truly came into his own as a filmmaker The fascinating aspect of any Mahesh Bhatt film is its attractive and bold leading lady A mould-breaker she is not only confident about her sexuality but also uses it to get ahead The Bhatt heroines are versions of either Parveen Babi first wife Kiran or his mother and the men a splitting mirror image of Mahesh himself You have to give it to him that the heroes of a Bhatt film are far from ‘heroic’ The tortured director paints unflattering picture of himself on celluloid unashamed and unmindful of how people would judge him knowing well that what you are seeing on screen is a Mahesh Bhatt memoir His heroes are flawed misguided dreamy and lonely with daddy issues If anything the director’s best work – Arth Saaransh Aashiqui or Zakhm – explores a haunting sense of loneliness The image of a ‘broken home’ and the consequences of single parenting also symbolise many of his films Actress Pooja Bhatt with her father Mahesh Bhatt (Source: Express archive photo) While Mahesh’s 1990s stock reveals the influence of Hollywood he in truth owes more to Raj Khosla than Frank Capra His Hollywood inspirations are now common knowledge Kabzaa is an On The Waterfront knockoff Dil Hai Ki Manta Nahin a popular 1990s entertainer is a It Happened One Night rip-off while Sadak is Bollywood’s answer to Taxi Driver But it’s easy to overlook Mahesh’s Hollywood phase when you look back at the dismal quality of the 1990s movies After all we are talking about an era when every second film was a Hollywood me-too In his films Mahesh combined chartbuster music with compelling storytelling making the Hollywood borrowings enjoyable and palatable to Indian taste Perhaps when he winds up his career it’s likely we may not be able to recall all his films But we will certainly remember all his songs He boasts an incredible legacy of music and that comes from his training with Raj Khosla Mahesh belongs to the same school of filmmaking as Raj and his comrades – Dev Anand Guru Dutt and Vijay Anand Deepak Jhaveri Arun Govil Mushtaq Khan Mahesh Bhatt and Sadashiv Amrapurkar at the muhurat shot of film Paltan (Source: Express archive photo) For example the itinerant street performers expressing the feelings of the characters is a technique used extensively in old Bollywood O leke pehla pehla pyaar from Raj Khosla’s CID comes instantly to mind Compare it to these two songs from Mahesh’s films Aashiqui’s best number ‘Tu meri zindagi hai’ is sung by the street performers giving voice to Rahul Roy’s love pangs I don’t know if a hat tip is tucked in there but it’s shot on Kishore Kumar Marg Second example: ‘Shaairana’ from Phir Teri Kahani Yaad Aayee There’s also a case to be made that Mahesh’s 1990s heroes also physically resembled Dev Anand and Guru Dutt Notice the dressing styles of Rahul Roy or the cap on Aamir Khan in Dil Hai Ki Maanta Nahin Guru Dutt wore a similar one in Aar Paar and Dev Anand in Asli Naqli Actress Smita Patil and Director Mahesh Bhatt on the set of film Tikana (Source: Express archive photo) It is a well-known fact that Mahesh pretty much defined the 1990s alongside Yash Chopra Like the late YRF chief critics tended to write off his newer films preferring the early social-realistic gems In Mahesh’s case Saaransh and Arth are lauded as superior films I have a feeling Mahesh’s relationship with UG Krishnamurti (“He was my Kaaba and Kashi” the filmmaker writes in his only non-fiction A Taste of Life: The Last Days of UG Krishnamurti) may have something to do with his shift from serious to commercial cinema Mahesh who came under the spiritual spell of UG in the late 1970s and was with him at his deathbed may have been a very different filmmaker had he stuck with someone like Rajneesh Osho who was his then girlfriend Parveen Babi’s guru From the commercial failures of Saaransh and Arth Mahesh vowed never to return to his socially conscious middle-of-the-road cinema roots One of the things UG taught the young recruit was to stop pondering the Meaning of Life and get on with the Business of Living Life instead The spiritual greenhorn today the much-admired ideologue of Vishesh Films is merely following his guru’s advice Actress Amrita Singh and Director Mahesh Bhatt on the set of film Naam (Source: Express archive photo) The press laps up Mr Bhatt’s blunt admission of cinema being a “money-making machine” and “I am a hooker here to seduce” quotable quips but at the same time slams him as a sell-out But the marketing genius that he is he has taken that abuse and turned it into his calling card This further frustrates his detractors who cannot reconcile the two Bhatts – a philosopher peacenik and social activist on one hand and shameless pursuer of pleasure and introducer of Sunny Leone on the other Rahul along with his other co-star Deepak Tijori Mahesh Bhatt Pooja Bhatt were seen at the launch of Anu Aggarwal’s book UNUSUAL at Olive Bar (Source: Express Photos by Dilip Kagda) Mahesh as he turns 68 this year has long retired from direction (his last film was Zakhm) but not from filmmaking He frequently expresses dissatisfaction with cinema but doesn’t quit Unwittingly he may have also become Bollywood’s very own Coppola with the ever expanding Bhatt dynasty seeping into all areas of film business If it was Pooja Bhatt in the 1990s it’s Emraan Hashmi and Alia Bhatt now Not to forget a long line of protégés Vikram Bhatt Mohit Suri and Milan Luthria who incidentally is Raj Khosla’s son and Mahesh’s ultimate payback Much like Dev Anand’s Navketan Films the Bhatts are star-makers having launched many careers And presiding over them all is Mahesh Bhatt – the anti-mentor who’s been entrusted the task of looking after the flock and keeping “the wolf from the door” (Shaikh Ayaz is a
