Janhvi, Ishaan are hardworking actors: Director Khaitan

MUMBAI  Janhvi Kapoor and Ishaan Khatter, who will be making their Bollywood debut with “Dhadak”, seem to have won over the heart of their director Shashank Khaitan, who calls them hardworking and respectful actors.
“Dhadak” is an official remake of last year’s Marathi blockbuster “Sairat”, the rights of which were bought by producer Karan Johar.
“The prep work for the film began sometime back and I have been working with them. They (Janhvi and Ishaan) are great people and are very hardworking, these are two things that I always look for in actors.
“They are good people who respect others and are dedicated to their work and ready to give their best,” Shashank said in an interview here.
At the moment, the makers are putting together the project with the first schedule of the film rolling in December.
“Dhadak”, a co-production between Zee Studios and Dharma Productions, is set to release on July 6 next year.
The writer-director accepts that he has worked only with star kids. He earlier worked with actors Varun Dhawan and Alia Bhatt starred in the “Dhulania” series — “Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania” and “Badrinath Ki Dulhania”.
Janhvi is actor Sridevi’s elder daughter while Ishaan is Shahid Kapoor’s half-brother.
“They (star kids) do not come with burden, they are far more relaxed and chilled out. For me, even when I was working with Varun and Alia, I was working with two new actors and they never treated me as someone from outside the film industry.
“…And I have never treated them as someone from the industry. Same thing over here, with Janhvi and Ishaan I am their director and they are my actors,” Shashank says.
Meanwhile, the team of “Dhulania” series (Varun Dhawan- Alia Bhatt-Shashank Khaitan) will also be back for the third part.
Talking about the third part, Shashank says, “We are definitely wanting to do it. But right now we are busy with ‘Dhadak’, I am focused on this film. Once I am done with this, maybe then we will take the ‘Dhulania’ series forward.” (AGENCIES)
High-speed quantum encryption could stop hackers: study
Scientists have developed a high-speed encryption system that can protect against the common security attacks, even if the equipment has flaws that could make it vulnerable to leaks.
The system is capable of distributing encryption codes at megabit-per-second rates, five to 10 times faster than existing methods and on par with current internet speeds when running several systems in parallel.
In a study, published in the journal Science Advances, the researchers demonstrate that the technique is secure from common attacks, even in the face of equipment flaws that could open up leaks.
“We are now likely to have a functioning quantum computer that might be able to start breaking the existing cryptographic codes in the near future,” said Daniel Gauthier, from The Ohio State University in the US.
“We really need to be thinking hard now of different techniques that we could use for trying to secure the internet,” he said.
To a hacker, our online purchases, bank transactions and medical records all look like gibberish due to ciphers called encryption keys.
Personal information sent over the web is first scrambled using one of these keys, and then unscrambled by the receiver using the same key.
For this system to work, both parties must have access to the same key, and it must be kept secret.
Quantum key distribution (QKD) takes advantage of one of the fundamental properties of quantum mechanics – measuring tiny bits of matter like electrons or photons automatically changes their properties – to exchange keys in a way that immediately alerts both parties to the existence of a security breach.
Though QKD was first theorised in 1984 and implemented shortly thereafter, the technologies to support its wide-scale use are only now coming online.
The problem with many of these systems, said Nurul Taimur Islam, from the Duke University in the US, is that they can only transmit keys at relatively low rates – between tens to hundreds of kilobits per second – which are too slow for most practical uses on the internet.
Like many QKD systems, Islam’s key transmitter uses a weakened laser to encode information on individual photons of light. However they found a way to pack more information onto each photon, making their technique faster.
By adjusting the time at which the photon is released, and a property of the photon called the phase, their system can encode two bits of information per photon instead of one.
This trick, paired with high-speed detectors developed by Clinton Cahall, from Duke University, powers their system to transmit keys five to 10 times faster than other methods.
“It was changing these additional properties of the photon that allowed us to almost double the secure key rate that we were able to obtain if we hadn’t done that,” said Gauthier. (AGENCIES)
