Director Anand Gandhi On How He is Equipping Young Creators Of Tomorrow

href=”author/shubanka-sridhar”>Shubanka Sridhar , 31 Mar 2021Anand Gandhi (Source: Instagram | @memewala)

Inspired by a curiosity of astronomer Bob Williams, who pointed the world’s most powerful telescope at nothing and unlocked and made humungous discoveries about the universe, director Anand Gandhi also has aspirations to find stars where only darkness existed before.

Gandhi has worked towards expanding the paradigm of cinema in India with his films like Tumbbad, Ship of Theseus and An Insignificant Man. As the founder and producer at Memesys Culture, Gandhi aims to discover the brightest stars who will lead his revolution.

Speaking about the process that his studio employs to discern the makers of tomorrow, Gandhi shares:

First, a burgeoning creator must indicate a deep curiosity and comprehension of the human experience. Second, they must rigorously follow through on that curiosity by investing in their education in sciences, philosophy, literature, and cinema. And lastly, they should display some prowess in articulating their insights and abilities, be it through first-draft scripts or early storyboards or short pieces of cinema. When I see signs of curiosity, comprehension and clarity in a burgeoning creator, I invest in the augmentation of their worldview and craft with my full weight behind them.

He also adds that the studio invests significant resources in building talent, honing their crafts, and
expanding their frameworks through education in everything from design and art to science and
politics. And then, when their creators are ready, he shares that they chart a course for them to reach the moon with their ideas.

But of course, there are times when a few ambitious projects also fail to launch. Speaking about how they  approach it then, he shares that every hiccup is an opportunity to study more, build a better launchpad, a
more aerodynamic rocket, and make the science more rigorous. He adds, “Any experiment undertaken
with courage and integrity is valuable. In a world of cultural noise pollution and intellectual
laziness, the ambition of originality is worth protecting.” 

This bold approach has yielded many successes for creators and the slowly-changing Indian
landscape alike. Gandhi has collaborated with filmmakers like Khushboo Ranka and Vinay Shuka on their project, An Insignificant Man. He has mentored Zain Memon from an outreach intern to the special effects supervisor on Tumbbad. Gandhi was also a hands-on producer on SHASN, Memon’s first
major undertaking, and the most celebrated strategy board game out of this part of the world.

Gandhi produced Chaitanya Tamhane‘s debut play, Grey Elephants in Denmark, years before
he went on to make Court and Disciple. Nitin Zihani Choudhary‘s journey from an art intern to a
Filmfare Award-winning production designer under Gandhi’s mentorship is another feather in
Gandhi’s cap.

The newest creators that Gandhi has introduced to the world are Pooja Shetty and Neil
Pagedar, the minds who have jump-started a dialogue around Indian science-fiction with OK
Computer.

Anand says:

When Pooja and Neil first came to me with their idea, I was blown away. They ticked all the boxes in a big way. They had gone through a rigorous peer review program at Memesys. Their vision was vast and I believed in it completely. We were absolutely convinced about taking a bet on these creators, and we’ll do it again.

Now that Shasn and OK Computer are out there for us all to experience, I sure can’t wait to see what
Gandhi and his studio are going to produce next.

Some Bollywood songs are just so good to hear, but when you try to understand those lyrics… umm… they can be a little extra! Like this one right here, that Kusha tried applying to her life and well, it was hilarious. Our favourite part in this entire Reel actually is Kusha’s own rendition towards the end. Brb, going elsewhere to laugh a little louder right now.

3. Dance Moves On Point!

This Reel is so Bollywood from the past that it makes me nostalgic and also makes me wonder, why did we as kids always think this to be so normal? Ask us now, and we may try to justify ourselves saying, “it’s Bollywood baby, you don’t need to understand it, you just have to enjoy it!” Hahaha!

8 Skincare Products I Wish I Had Used In My Early 20s

href=”author/kanak-devnani”>Kanak Devnani , 31 Mar 2021

For as long as I can remember makeup has always been my happy place. I was the one literally swatching every eyeshadow in sight and ooh-ing and ahh-ing at the latest releases. Skincare never really was a thing I worried about in my early 20s. I followed a basic moisturiser and sunscreen routine and that was that. Obviously, at that point you don’t worry much about anti-ageing and time is on your side. But as I’ve learnt more about my skin throughout the years I look back and cringe at my mistakes. Prevention is always better than the cure and you should start it as early as possible. While I might be doing damage control now, I wish I’d done a little more during that time. Even just working a few more steps into my skincare routine then would have made a huge difference over the years. 

Keep reading to discover the handful of skincare products I wish I had started using sooner:1. Eye Cream

Can you imagine never using an ounce of eye cream? Well, that was me at 22. It wouldn’t have mattered as much but with my dry skin, it would have been especially useful in providing the hydration my skin needed, especially during the winter months. Not to mention, my concealer would have gone on a whole lot smoother. Currently, I’ve been loving the Origins Ginzing eye cream that hydrates, brightens and depuffs my tired under eyes.

2. Hand Cream

Do yourself a favour and invest in a good hand cream with SPF included in the formula if you’re lazy with your sunscreen. Our hands are the first to show signs of ageing and sun damage so you need to protect them daily. Plus with our constant handwashing and extensive use of hand sanitiser on the daily, our hands are in dire need of hydration.

4. Cleansing Balm

I wish I could go back in time and tell my younger self to throw out those makeup wipes. They really were awful and always irritated my skin or dried it out. Now I can’t even imagine going anywhere near them. My trusted cleansing balm breaks down any makeup and helps remove any dirt or oil at the end of the day. Moreover, it’s way more gentle on my skin!

5. Gentle Hydrating Shampoo

I don’t even know what the heck my hair was doing before. It was so dry and my scalp was never happy even on natural hair days sans heat tools or styling products. This probably had to lot to do with the horrible harsh shampoos I was using that were stripping the natural oils from my hair. While I’m still searching for my perfect shampoo and conditioner combo, using more gentle hydrating shampoo without sulphates has made such a huge difference.

6. Hair Mask

The number of mistakes I’ve with my hair I can’t even count but not using a hair mask was a big no-no. If you’ve got dry or curly locks you truly understand the need for a hydrating hair mask for extra moisture.

7. Hyaluronic Acid

The saviour for dry dehydrated skin everywhere, I wish I knew about this crucial ingredient early on. I detested using heavy-duty creams that never seemed to skin in or moisturize my skin. Now I look for hyaluronic acid in a lot of my skincare like serums and at times makeup products.

8. SPF Lip Balm

Did you know your lips need SPF too? The skin there is thin and especially more prone to damage and wrinkles. A lip balm with SPF is not just essential but crucial.

href=”author/avya-sharma”>Avya Sharma , 31 Mar 2021Poster of Sanya Malhotra’s Pagglait (Source: Instagram | @sanyamalhotra_)

It would be right to say that actress Sanya Malhotra‘s career took quite the leap this year with her performance in her latest film ‘Pagglait’. Playing such a different role in the film, the Dangal actress left many in awe of her skills and her craft.

Heading a project like this, single-handedly comes with its own challenges, but Sanya shuns brightly as ever. Talking about the massive success of the film, the actress shares—

I am grateful for the response we have received for Pagglait. My phone hasn’t stopped buzzing. Big thank you to Guneet, Ekta and Umesh sir & Achin for believing in me for the film. It encourages me to take more and different roles like these.

With the never-seen-before avatar in her professional career, Sanya carried out the role with sheer confidence and grace leaving not only the audience but also the critics impressed.

तारक मेहता का उल्टा चश्मा के शैलेश लोढ़ा ने दिलीप जोशी और उनके डिफरेंसेस वाली खबरों पर किया रिएक्ट

href=”author/yashiverma”>Yashi Verma , 31 Mar 2021

Tarak Mehta, Jetha Laal, (Source: Instagram | @jethiyeah_)

तारक मेहता का उल्टा चश्मा एक ऐसा शो है जो हमें सालों से एंटरटेन करता आ रहा है। इस शो के सभी किरदार अपने आप में बहुत अलग और एंटरटेनिंग हैं। और इस शो की कास्ट हमें एक फैमिली से कम नहीं लगती। इसलिए जब हाल ही में खबर आई के शो में एक दूसरे कर बहुत अच्छे दोस्त का किरदार निभा रहे तारक मेहता और जेठा लाल उर्फ़ शैलेश लोढ़ा और दिलीप जोशी रियल लाइफ में एक दूसरे से बात तक नहीं करते तो हम चौंक गए थे। लेकिन हाल ही में शैलेश ने इन खबरों पर अपना रिएक्शन दिया है।

दैनिक भास्कर के साथ बातचीत में शैलेश ने कहा के ये खबर सच नहीं है।

उन्होंने कहा-

मेरा विश्वास करें, दिलीप जोशी और मेरे बीच ऐसा कुछ नहीं है। हमारा रिश्ता हमारे ऑनस्क्रीन रिश्ते से बहुत स्ट्रॉन्ग हैं।

दिलीप आयरा शैलेश के डिफ्रेंसेस के साथ ये भी खबरें आ रही थी के दोनों बहुत प्रोफेशनल है, शूट करते टाइम ऐसा लगने ही नहीं देते के उनके बीच प्रॉब्लम है और सीन खत्म होने के बाद दोनों अपने अपने मेकअप रूम में चले जाते हैं।

इस बारे में बात करते हुए शैलेश ने कहा-

हम दोनों एक ही मेकअप रूम शेयर करते हैं और सेट पर लोग हमें बेस्ट बडीज़ बुलाते हैं।

इसी के साथ शैलेश ने ये भी कहा के हो सकता है उनकी और दिलीप की पर्सनालिटी अलग है लेकिन एक चीज़ दोनों में कॉमन है और वो है ह्यूमर। उन्होंने ये भी कहा के वो और दिलीप बहुत सालों से साथ मे काम कर रहे हैं, वो सेट पर बहुत मज़े करते हैं और अभी तक उनके बीच थॉट्स का क्लैश नहीं हुआ है और वो उम्मीद करते हैं के आगे भी ऐसा ही रहे।

तो पढ़ा आपने? हमारे जेठा लाल हर तारक मेहता के बीच सब ठीक है।

‘Every Minute With Jackie Shroff Sir On The Hello Charlie Set Was A Laugh Riot!’ — Aadar Jain

href=”author/shubanka-sridhar”>Shubanka Sridhar , 31 Mar 2021Jackie Shroff and Aadar Jain

Aadar Jain is eagerly waiting for the release of his film, Hello Charlie. The trailer of the film dropped a few days ago and it is garnering attention because of his comic timing and his one-of-a-kind, hilarious friendship with a gorilla (which is actually Jackie Shroff in disguise).

Hello Charlie is an adventure of a young simpleton (Charlie) from a small town who is given the task of transporting a Gorilla (Toto) from Mumbai to Diu. What transpires then is what makes for a hilarious tale!

Aadar says that sharing screen space with the yesteryear star was a true-blue fan moment for him:

I’ve always been a big Jackie Shroff fan and after working with him, I’ve become an even bigger fan of his. He’s a rockstar in the truest sense and hands down the coolest person I’ve met! I had a blast working with him, we share a great bond and I just have the most amount of love & respect for him, as an actor and as a human being.

Aadar adds:

I’ve known him for many years now. Even before I became an actor, we met first on the sets of Farah Khan’s ‘Happy New Year’ in which I worked as an assistant director and I always wanted to share screen space with him, so to finally get the opportunity to work alongside him in ‘Hello Charlie’ was really special for me.

Aadar says that he cherishes every minute that he has shared with Jackie on the sets of Hello Charlie and shares:

Every minute with Jackie Shroff sir on set was a laugh riot or an exchange of warm words. We heard a lot of young cool African music together and exchanged many interesting stories about my family and his.

Talking about how Jackie was a big motivator for Aadar on the sets, he says, “To be honest, he just always showered me with a lot of love and praise, and that in itself was really encouraging and motivating for a young actor like me. If at all, he just said ‘bindaas bidhu, just enjoy yourself!”

Starring Aadar Jain, Jackie Shroff, Shlokka Pandit, Elnaaz Norouzi, Rajpal Yadav, Darshan Jariwalla, Girish Kulkarni, and Bharat Ganeshpure among others, Hello Charlie is directed by Pankaj Saraswat, Produced by Excel Entertainment‘s Ritesh Sidhwani and Farhan Akhtar. The film is all set to premiere on Amazon Prime Video on the 9th of April, 2021.

Theatrical Release Of Akshay Kumar’s ‘Sooryavanshi’ Reportedly Delayed Yet Again

href=”author/shubanka-sridhar”>Shubanka Sridhar , 31 Mar 2021Akshay Kumar In The Sooryavanshi Poster (Source: Instagram | @itsrohitshetty)

The COVID-19 pandemic brought a lot of things around us to a pause last year, this time. As for the team of Rohit Shetty‘s Sooryavanshi, the film’s theatrical release was pushed indefinitely due to the shutting down of theatres as a precautionary measure.

Now, given the industry is slowly getting back to work and theatres were allowed to function with 50-100% capacity in many cities, the makers of Sooryavanshi and other films announced revised release dates of their films. The Akshay Kumar-Katrina Kaif starrer was all set to release this April 30th, 2021.

But now, the sudden spike in the COVID-19 cases in the past few days in Maharashtra especially, night shows have been stopped and night curfews have been put in place. The general uncertainty and people’s safety concerns have forced theatres to hold the release of such a big-budget film, thus further postponing the film’s release indefinitely.

A Times Of India report states that the director, Rohit, refused to go for an OTT release last year, and even now is reportedly still contemplating it. The report further states that they could go for a simultaneous theatrical and OTT release or have an OTT release 14 days post theatrical release.

What the makers will finally decide is something we need to wait and watch. Apart from Sooryavanshi, Amitabh Bachchan‘s Chehre is also another film whose theatrical release has been pushed indefinitely.

All You Need To Know About Being A Girl-Boss (Part 1)

href=”author/mallika-jhaveri”>Mallika Jhaveri , 31 Mar 2021Malini Agarwal On Being A Girl-Boss

Being a driven, career-oriented woman is incredible, but being a girl-boss is a feeling like no other. However, many women who want to feel empowered by running a business, lack the guidance to do so. They’re lost when it comes to setting up a business, growing on social media, investment avenues and more.So, to help them out, we hosted an Ask Me Anything session on our Girl Tribe App with Malini Agarwal, the Founder and Creative Director of MissMalini Entertainment. She answered questions on growing businesses, creating an online presence, commercialising creativity and kick-starting one’s entrepreneurial dream. The questions were oh-so relatable, and she answered them beautifully! Here is all you need to know about being a girl-boss!

1. Are there any sure-shot methods to grow my Instagram presence?

This is one of the most frustrating problems many of us face! I think the main thing that helps is using all their features, especially their newest feature- Reels. Posting three Reels a week can be very beneficial. I also feel interacting with other people in your category and target audience really helps too!

2. I have worked in many different fields from event-management to teaching. I am totally confused as to which one is perfect for me! How do I pick one and succeed in it?

You seem like a great multi-tasker, however, I feel like the best way to identify your true calling is to apply the “ikigai” rule. Answer these four questions: What do you love to do? What are you good at? What can you get paid to do? And what does the world need? These should help you pick which field you want to pursue and is your true calling!

3. Are there any tips for people who want a career in celebrity journalism to make their journey slightly easier?

I actually started over a decade ago and things have definitely evolved since then. The best tip I can give you is being consistent and covering the latest news and coming up with unique features. That definitely gets you the views at the beginning. After that, building relationships with the celebrity PR network gives you good access to exclusive content. In the current environment, following celebrities on social media is a great resource for content too!

4. Can one start a blog with minimal investment?

Yes! Certainly. The good thing about blogging is that it can be started with zero or very little investment. When I started, I began my blog on WordPress and only started investing money in it once I had grown a following. Now, it is a full-fledged business and I have diversified into various other fields as well.

5. What are the basics you need to start a business? And how do I know if it’s the right thing for me to pursue?

Such a great question! Usually, the key is to think of a business that fills a need that may not be available in the market. Or one that adds a new twist to an existing concept. You definitely need a business plan with an understanding of your audience, goals and requirements to get it off the ground. After that, you’re pretty much set!

6. How I get sponsors for services?

Depending on your service, identify brands that want to reach the audience you think will most likely avail of your service. Then reach out to them on social media platforms like Instagram and see if they are interested. This can lead to partnerships, giveaways and more!

7. What are your tips to make a blog successful apart from regularly publishing content?

Search Engine Optimisation or SEO is your best bet. Many online services that can help you understand optimization. In fact, WordPress and other blogging platforms help you with that themselves. Using social media to amplify your reach always helps too, especially if you tag people who would find your content useful.

8. What are the 3 most important things to keep in mind while starting a small-scale business?

  • Have short term and long term goals and plan your expenses accordingly.
  • Use Social Media to build a micro-community for your brand of loyal customers.
  • Find your audience by going to them instead of expecting them to come to you.
  • If you have any tips for kick-starting an entrepreneurial dream, share them with us in the comments below!

    बिगबॉस का हर सीज़न बहुत ही एंटरटेनिंग होता है और जब शो खत्म हो जाता है तो हम सभी को कंटेस्टेन्ट्स के बारे में पढ़ना और उनके बारे में जानना बहुत अच्छा लगता है। बात करें इस सीज़न की, तो कुछ ही दिन पहले ख़बर आई थी के बीबी 14 की विनर रुबीना दिलैक और बिगबॉस 13 फाइनलिस्ट पारस छाबड़ा जल्द ही एक म्यूज़िक वीडियो में नज़र आने वाले हैं। इस अनाउंसमेंट के बाद और म्यूज़िक वीडियो का फर्स्ट लुक देखने के बाद हम सभी पारस और रुबीना को साथ देखने के लिए बहुत एक्साइटेड थे।

    इस म्यूज़िक वीडियो का नाम तो हमें नहीं पता, लेकिन हाल ही में पारस और रुबीना ने अपने सोशल मीडिया पर एक वीडियो शेयर किया, जिसमें उन्होंने फैन्स से अपने म्यूज़िक वीडियो का नाम गेस करने के लिए कहा। वीडियो में रुबीना कहती हैं, ‘हम आपको बताएंगे आपका गेस सही है या गलत।’ जिसपर पारस कहते हैं ‘गलत नहीं गल्त’। पारस का जवाब देते हुए रुबीना कहती हैं ‘गल्त पंजबी में और गलत हिंदी में’।

    Exclusive: Suniel Shetty Speaks About The Importance Of Holistic Wellness In His Show ’21 Din Wellness In’

    href=”author/shubanka-sridhar”>Shubanka Sridhar , 30 Mar 2021Suniel Shetty (Source: Instagram | @suniel.shetty)

    Suniel Shetty has always been someone who has lived a life of discipline and fitness. So it would be super cool to get to hear from the man himself about what it takes to stay fit and adopt a holistic and healthy lifestyle, no?

    We exclusively told you about how the actor is set to host a radio show, and it’s called ’21 Din Wellness In’ on BIG FM, where he is going to be talking about exactly that — about the various aspects of holistic and healthy living and busting myths and offering tips on fitness, dieting, mental health and more. I got a chance to have a quick chat with the man himself, where he stated that this is a show that is made for the masses, for people from all walks of life and is all about simple living.

    His idea is that anything you start to practice, takes 21 days to become a habit, and his goal is to have people make wellness a habit. He says, “In 7 days you’ll feel it, in 14 days you’ll see it and in 21 days you’ll hear it from everyone around you, and that is the aim of his show”.  

    Given he is addressing mental health on the show, in today’s time has become something that is not only a topic for the millennial generation to engage in, but something people from older generations are also trying to grasp and understand — especially after the pandemic. He reasons out that it is a different struggle for each generation, and that people of our parents’ and grandparents’ generations are facing loneliness more than anything else right now, which could potentially affect their mental health.

    He adds:

    We give our parents “gyaan” about all this from what we read on social media. We might not follow it ourselves, We tell them to not go out right now, and how it is not safe. But we also don’t give them our time, given we are always busy. This show is thus, designed to address this concern from a children’s perspective as well as from a senior citizen’s perspective in order to bring about a change.

    Speaking about diet fads that people adopt, mostly influenced by celebrities, he says that he has always been one to eat simple, organic foods that are grown in his backyard and kitchen and that is what the show is going to talk about too — simple nutrition that is accessible and easy.

    Ask him about one lifestyle change he made in his life that changed the game for him, and he replies very simply — “discipline”. He says that it is super important to start something and follow through with it and to dedicate one hour in a day for yourself as “ME time“.

    Well, these already are such insightful and helpful points, and I am super excited to listen to more such conversations on ’21 Din Wellness In’, which is playing now on BIG FM.

    6 Of Vidya Balan’s Sarees I’d Love To Add To My Summer Closet

    href=”author/sakshi-kore”>Sakshi Kore , 30 Mar 2021Vidya Balan | (Source: Instagram | @balanvidya, @who_wore_what_when)

    Most will agree, few won’t, but once you get hit by that saree fatigue, it’s hard to snap out of it! It’s rightly just the wardrobe staple that holds an irreplaceable position in an Indian closet. Few can deny the charm of the six-yard drape. But for those that can’t get enough, you must check out the sarees from Vidya Balan‘s collection. The actor hardly misses an opportunity to drape herself in one. From ombré finishes, handpainted ones, embroidery-heavy to lightweight, floral-printed numbers and more, Vidya Balan has a saree for every mood, occasion and season!

    But with summer upon us accompanied by the unbearable heat, it’s essential to pick sarees that are lightweight and also look dressy enough to be worn for occasions. So here’s a quick glance at 6 of my favourite summery sarees I wish I could steal from Vidya Balan’s closet.

    6 sarees by Vidya Balan perfect for summers:1. House of Masaba

    An airy, colourful and floral-printed chanderi saree like this one is a no-brainer for the season and perfect for intimate traditional occasions. Am I right or am I right?

    2. Rouka By Sreejith Jeevan

    If you swear by a saree even at home, you’re absolutely going to love this easy-going number, too. The pastel colour of the saree and the stitched blooms makes the look dressy yet retains that subtlety factor.

    3. Vedika M

    The burst of colour and the interesting pattern of the saree are two reasons why it makes it to the top of my list. Reason three? The breezy look and feel of the drape. Such an interesting saree, it has that potential of instantly becoming the talk-of-the-room!

    4. Gaurang

    Pastel hues and handwoven silk—you can’t miss this duo for the season of summer. When it comes together in the form of a saree like this one, lightly adorned with zari for a pop of shine, why wouldn’t you want to add it to your summer closet? It’s balmy, easy on the body and perfect for outdoors and indoors.

    Here’s Why Deepika Padukone Is One Of The Most Bankable Stars Today

    href=”author/shubanka-sridhar”>Shubanka Sridhar , 30 Mar 2021Deepika Padukone

    In a country like ours, film stars and celebrities have a huge reach and influence over their audiences and are adored and looked upto by their fans. When it comes to Deepika Padukone, she is a star who fits that description best! She is one actress who has established herself as a name to reckon with in this industry.

    Her off -screen persona too is something that makes everyone – from teenagers to elders – admire her.
    So naturally, it turns out that it’s not just filmmakers, but also people in the advertising world who have their laser-focus vision on her and her star-power.

    Apart from a super well-known denim label who recently signed her on, Deepika Padukone has also been signed by 3 other big brands in the last few months. A couple of more major brand endorsements are also reportedly in pipeline and are soon to be announced.

    A source from the brand world shares:

    Deepika Padukone has always been the go-to person for major brands because of her ever increasing popularity and superstardom, her fan following and her consistent numero uno position in showbiz. So, it’s not surprising to see such a range of major brands signing her on as their brand endorser and investing in her.

    Speaking about her stature in the industry — not just here, but internationally as well — a trade analyst says:

    It’s not just because of her successful movies, like Cocktail, Chennai Express, Ram-Leela, Bajirao Mastani, Padmaavat but also her international projects and talked about appearances at Cannes that escalate her stature. Noteworthy brands love to associate with her name as it brings the trust and credibility factor to the table.

    The source also adds that a major brand is set to announce her as their brand ambassador very soon.

    I sure can’t wait to know more about which one it’s going to be and all the other huge brands that are going to have her as their face!

    Ajay Devgn To Resume ‘Maidaan’ Shoot After Director Amit Sharma Tests COVID-19 Negative

    href=”author/shubanka-sridhar”>Shubanka Sridhar , 30 Mar 2021Ajay Devgn in the poster of Maidaan (Source: Instagram | @ajaydevgn)

    Ajay Devgn‘s upcoming film, Maidaan, was supposed to release in November last year, but due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the dates had to be moved around. Now, finally, with the industry starting up again, the film was also planning on going on floors in January. But, the director, Amit Sharma, testing positive for Coronavirus put the entire shoot on halt. Now, he has tested negative and the shoot is all set to resume again.

    Amit had tested positive for the virus earlier this month and quarantined himself at home. Now, as he has tested negative, and feeling better, he is keen to get back to work. The makers are all set to make preparations for the shoot to be back on track.

    For the uninitiated, Maidaan is a story that is based on the very acclaimed football coach, Syed Abdul Rahim. This will be the first time that Ajay will be essaying a role of a sports coach and I sure am looking forward to seeing him step into this role.

    The film will also star Priyamani opposite him along with Gagjraj Rao, who is playing a pivotal role in it. This sure is one interesting star cast that I can’t wait to witness on screen! The film is being produced by Boney Kapoor and Zee Studios, in association with Freshlime Films and is slated to release this Dussehra 2021, on 15th October.

    जैस्मिन भसीन और अली गोनी बिगबॉस 14 के बाद से टैली टाउन के फ़ेवरेट कपल बन चुके हैं। बिगबॉस में जाने से पहले भी अली ने घर के बाहर से जैस्मिन को बहुत सपोर्ट किया था, घर में आने के बाद भी दोनों ने हमेशा एक दूसरे का सपोर्ट किया और अब बिगबॉस खत्म होने के बाद भी दोनों हमेशा एक दूसरे के साथ ही रहते हैं और अपनी तस्वीरों से हम सभी को कपल ग़ोल्स देते हैं।

    अली और जैस्मिन दोनों के फैन्स के मन मे ये सवाल है के उनके फ़ेवरेट कपल शादी कब करेंगे। यही सवाल पैपराज़ी ने भी जैस्मिन से कर लिया। हाल ही में जैस्मिन सैलून से बाहर निकल रही थी तब पैप्स ने उनकी और अली की शादी के बारे में पूछा। इसका सवाल का जवाब देते हुए जैस्मिन ने कहा ‘अभी पॉसिबल नहीं है।’

    उन्होंने कहा-

    पॉसिबल ही नहीं है। अभी तो हमारी कोई बात नहीं चल रही। अभी तो नया नया प्यार हुआ है।

    वैसे बात तो साही है, अभी तो नया नया प्यार हुआ है। शादी में अभी टाइम है और तब तक हम जैसली की खूबसूरत तस्वीरें देखकर ही बहुत खुश हैं।

    8 Unusual Signs Your Dog Is Really Sick & You Need To Take Them To A Vet

    href=”author/suruchi-patwary”>Suruchi Patwary , 30 Mar 2021Petting A Dog by Chendongshan | www.shutterstock.com

    There are various medical problems that impersonate behavioural changes in dogs and it becomes tough for pet parents to figure it out. The majority of the time when pets are taken to a vet for a check-up, they act as normal as they can, so it becomes vital for the owners to observe their pets closely. 

    This is when platforms like Practo come to the rescue for all the medical help one may need for their furry friends from the comfort of their homes. In a bid to create equitable healthcare access for all, Practo also launched a veterinary telemedicine service on their platform. They have teamed with licensed veterinarians across the country and will be offering 24*7 online consultation services for pets!  

    And so, we got in touch with Dr Prachi Kshatriya, a veterinarian who also consults on Practo to understand more about the typical behavioural changes in pets that require prompt actions and here’s what she had to say:

    1. Aggression/Calmness/Panic/FearPanicked Dog By dezy | www.shutterstock.com

    All of a sudden, if your pet becomes aggressive, sits alone in one corner of the room or avoids communicating with you then he needs to be shown to an expert as it could be a result of a tragic encounter with an aggressive dog or it could be due to an intolerable pain!

    2. Vocalisation

    Changes in howling or barking patterns can be as simple as sore throat or can be as serious as rabies infection, laryngitis, etc. Pay attention to it and consult your vet when you notice a change in their vocalisation.

    3. Social Behaviour

    Usually, dogs are part and parcel of a family and they prove the same by their love and affection. But when they start behaving unusually and require space, now that calls for attention! There could be something bothering them that they’re not able to communicate to you.

    4. Feeding & Excreting DisturbancesDog Eating Food By ThamKC | www.shutterstock.com

    If your pet has improper eating patterns and you notice changes in stool or urine like its recurrence, colour and excreting in unusual locations or the like, it can be systemic failures like gastric problems, anal gland problems, urinary tract infections, stones in the urinary passage or any cancerous state.

    5. Gait Changes

    These are very crucial to make out if not detected attentively! If there is any sort of limping or inefficiency to put weight on legs then it could be an accidental trauma, general weakness, parasitic infection or arthritis which could be alarming.

    6. Water Uptake

    Any increased or decreased water intake can be seasonal. But it can also be due to hormonal problems, which definitely needs to be examined!

    7. Excessive Grooming/Licking/ScratchingDog Scratching By mylisa | www.shutterstock.com

    This change could be a result of parasitism, anal gland disorders, allergies, skin infection which can be severe. Instead of just saying a stern ‘no’ to stop them from excessive scratching, grooming or licking, take them to a vet and get them examined.

    8. Sleeping Patterns

    Many times, your dog may experience disturbed sleeping patterns which might be because of systemic pain, hormonal problems, allergies or any sort of irritation, etc.

    We hope these signs help you notice the need for a vet check-up for your pupper, now that you know the reason behind them! For more such content, don’t forget to follow @missmalinilifestyle!

    Here’s How Your Email Habits Are Harming The Planet

    href=”author/sakshi-kore”>Sakshi Kore , 29 Mar 2021How Email Contributes To The Carbon Footprint by eakkasit90 | www.shutterstock.com

    Ever since March 2020, I have actively been observing how I live, my habits if they are harming the planet or are good for it, and to my surprise, I realised I’m hardly sustainable and conscious in my ways. So I obviously researched how I could adopt a more mindful, eco-friendly and conscious lifestyle and I also tailored my Instagram following list in a way that suits my needs of entertainment and schooling on this topic. And one fine day, as I was aimlessly scrolling through my feed, I came across a post by @envisoc.ssc that said, “If all email users (2.3 billion users) deleted just 10 emails, that would save 38,053 metric tonnes of CO2 emission. That’s approximately equivalent to 19,356 tonnes of coal burnt.” And boy, I was shell-shocked!

    So how does an innocent email cause so much harm to the planet?

    From the many articles and documents I read online about this, I realised one thing, not being able to see the real-time effect of what sending and receiving emails does is one reason why we’re so unaware of its environmental impact. Storing and transmitting data requires there to be huge server rooms. These servers save an unimaginable amount of data and hence consume a whole lot of water, air-conditioning to keep them from getting hot and in the process, use up a lot of energy. The more data to save, the more carbon to emit. Sending an email requires electricity, which in turn requires fossil fuels to be burned, which is exactly what causes these emissions.

    A few statistics gathered from Reset states that a single email emits about 0.3 grams of carbon and emails with a considerable amount of text and attachments can go up to 50 grams even. To sum it up perfectly, when you send or receive an email, it goes through a chain of energy-burning electronics as put forth correctly and simply by BBC News.

    Here are some easy ways to reduce our personal carbon footprint caused by our email habits:

    1. Regularly declutter and clear your inbox because storing an email takes up energy.

    2. Avoid sending emails that are not fruitful in nature like, “thanks” and “you’re welcome”.

    3. Check your spam box on the daily and trash these emails as spam emails account for 54.68% of all the emails, as calculated in 2019.

    4. Unsubscribe yourself from the many, many emailers that all of us are guilty of never having to look at.

    5. Do not unnecessarily send an email to people that needn’t be involved in the chain.

    6. Try to keep your emails crisp yet detailed so as to reduce follow-up emails.

    In conclusion..

    Altering your email habits which may seem non-harming is quite easy. Any and all effort is good for the planet.

    What are your thoughts on this and do you have any more tips we should adopt to reduce our carbon footprint? Tell us in the comments below.

    The 2001 romantic film, Rehna Hai Tere Dil Mein, starring Dia Mirza, R. Madhavan and Saif Ali Khan went to become a huge hit among the audiences at that time. There have been talks about the makers looking at coming back with the second instalment of the film.

    Now, according to an exclusive article on Pinkvilla, producer Jackky Bhagnani is planning the sequel to the 2001 film with Vicky Kaushal and Kriti Sanon in mind. While news about Kriti was known to some, the producers have reportedly just initiated conversations with Vicky.

    The makers were on a lookout for a fresh pairing, and considering the two actors haven’t worked together yet, they seemed like the perfect fit! A source tells the publication that the actors are keen on coming onboard the film and that the financial aspects and the dates are currently being worked upon. The source also adds that the producers are looking to rope in ‘Mom’ director, Ravi Udyawar, to helm the project. If all goes well, the project will mostly go on floors by the end of 2022.

    The source shares that Jackky is super pumped about this project and is making sure to leave no stone unturned as it is a big responsibility to take a cult favourite like Rehna Hai Tere Dil Mein forward.

    Well, I am certainly excited for the sequel and cannot wait to see Vicky and Kriti together! What about you guys?

    How To: Figure Out Your Hair Type And Its Needs

    href=”author/kanak-devnani”>Kanak Devnani , 27 Mar 2021

    Trying to understand and figure out your hair type can at times be easier said than done. The question of what’s your hair type is, can determine what your hair truly needs. Much like how crucial it is to understand your skin better to care for it better. Your hair type also plays a massive role in your daily hair care routine. If the products you currently use don’t seem to work for you, chances are you may not know your hair type as well you thought.

    Take this opportunity to re-evaluate your hair type and its current needs to serve you better. In addition to the obvious categories like straight, wavy or curly, other factors determine your unique hair type. These include your hair’s density, diameter, porosity, moisture, and curl pattern. Sounds overwhelming? Don’t worry we’re here to break down everything you need to know to figure out your hair type with ease. Also, keep in mind that if you’re still confused about which category you fall in you might have a unique mix of two or there.

    Here’s all you need to know to find out your hair type1. Hair Density

    This refers to the numbers of hairs on your head; not how thick they are. If you take the front section of your hair to the side and can’t see your scalp clearly you probably have dense hair. If you can visibly see your scalp without parting your hair the density is low. This can be affected by several factors like stress, hormones or diet.

    2.  Hair Diameter

    Your hair’s diameter is all about determining the width of your strands. This is an important step in understanding your hair type. Do the strand test to understand if your hair is fine, medium or thick. Take a strand of your hair and feel it between your fingertips. If it looks or feels thick and textured you probably have coarse hair. But if you can’t really see it or barely feel it then you have fine hair. Anything in between these two would be medium.

    3. Hair Porosity

    Porosity is your hair’s capability to consume and retain moisture. You need to know this so you can decide what treatments your hair can withstand. All you go to do is place a single strand in a glass of water. If it submerges to the bottom, your hair has high porosity. On the other hand, if the strand is floating in between it is well balanced. This means it is less prone to damage. If your strand does not absorb water well, it will remain on the surface of the water. This means it has low porosity which also means your hair cuticles have fewer pores to take in the moisture.

    Highly porous hair can drink up too much moisture and product which mean it could be damaged. You’ll find that high porous hair tends to dry quickly but does feel nourished or hydrated. Meaning you might find yourself using more product. In this case, you need to avoid heat, tools and products that may further dry out your strands.

    4. Scalp Moisture

    This indicates what shape your scalp is in and how greasy or dry it can get. By understanding your scalp health you’ll know how frequently to wash it and pick the correct formulas to balance its levels. When trying to figure this out you might find you’re experiencing a mix of symptoms and will need to treat it accordingly.

    Inspect your scalp on the second day after wash. If you find your roots flat and greasy you might need to wash your hair more often. Find a shampoo that gets prevents buildup and balances out your sebum levels. Flaking, on the other hand, means your scalp is dry and needs a more gentle hydrating formula. But what if it’s a combination of symptoms? This probably means you have a lot of product or oil buildup. You might not be washing your hair properly or often enough. In this case, you need to re-evaluate your hair care routine for something that calms the scalp and removes excessive buildup.

    5. Hair Texture

    The texture of your hair generally means the natural shape or pattern of your strands. Check your hair right now, is it curly, wavy, straight or kinky? If you’re not sure next time you wash your hair leave it free of hair products and let it dry to see its true form. See the section below and try to identify which of these best describes your pattern.

    Straight Hair

    If you have straight hair you probably live and breathe for dry shampoo! It’s usually soft, silky and stays pin-straight without holding any curls. You can often see an oily scalp with straight hair types. While every person’s hair is unique this type usually falls under these sub-categories:

    • 1A: has baby fine hair, doesn’t hold curls well and commonly oily or limp
    • 1B: has a very slight bend but no curl.
    • 1C: is the super thick, very slight wave in the underbrush, prone to little frizz and can hold styles well.

    Wavy Hair

    A happy medium between curls and straight hair but needs the right combination of products to behave. Type 2 is divided into:

    • 2A: is thin and wavy with an occasion bend. Think classic bed head.
    • 2B: has relaxed waves with a medium thickness.
    • 2C: has thicker waves and sporadic curls throughout. Is usually bigger and bouncy.

    Curly Hair

    If your hair dries with a defined curl or loop pattern, it’s likely Type 3. This hair type has definite curls that stay curly and higher density compared to wavy or straight hair. Curly hair can be divided into three sub-categories:

    • 3A: has loose curls, strands are larger in diameter with a mix of wavy pieces
    • 3B: has curls that look like stretched-out spirals that cascade down toward the shoulders.
    • 3C: has thick tight curls most prone to frizz. Clearly defined their corkscrew coils that can range in size.

    Coily Hair

    The kinkiest coarsest, and driest of all the hair types but it can be quite fragile and soft. It is easily prone to breakage and damage if not cared for properly. Coiley hair texture can have trouble getting moisture to the scalp and retaining shine. It also tends to shrink down easily. It’s divided into the following sub-categories

    • 4A: is soft and full of miniature curls.
    • 4B: has wiry Z-shaped kinks and S-shaped coils 
    • 4C: is extremely wiry with no distinct curl pattern. Usually difficult to detangle or get any definition.

    After going through all of these you might find that you’re a mix of different types. Don’t worry about it, it’s extremely normal. Everybody’s hair is unique and can be tough to put into a box. But all these tests help you get a thorough understanding of your hair to make better decisions and make sure they look and feel their best. Now that you have all this information at your fingertips you can explore and experiment with the right kind of products and figure the best hair care routine for your locks.

    A Dermatologist Tells You How To Care For Your Skin, Nails & Hair For Holi

    href=”author/natasha-patel”>Natasha Patel , 27 Mar 2021Holi celebration by Kristin F. Ruhs | www.shutterstock.com

    Celebrating Holi has been a tradition in India since the very beginning… The splash of colours, the laughter, the dancing, basically, the fun! Since last year didn’t really go according to everyone’s plan, Holi was cancelled. So naturally this year, while we’re being cautious and weary about the spread of the virus, here are a couple of things one needs to keep in mind when it comes to their hair, skin and nails. Think of this as your one-stop guide from a Delhi-based dermatologists, Dr. Kiran Sethi, owner and founder of Isya Aesthetics to know how best to take care of your body when it comes to playing Holi.

    P.S: If you’re skipping the Holi shindig this year, save this post for next time do you end up playing!

    Holi skincare no-nos:

    • do not apply any retinol, retinoids, alpha hydroxy acids, polyhydroxy acids or salicylic acid the night before.
    • do not do any laser on the face/neck or exposed areas for at least 6 days before Holi.
    • do not do any chemical peels for 6 days before.
    • do not do any scrubs the night before or the day of Holi before you play colours.

    Holi skincare musts:

    • use only all-natural vegetable dye-based colours that wash away easily.
    • moisturise as much as possible to create a strong skin barrier.
    • use vaseline petroleum jelly the night before and the day of Holi to create a barrier against those tough colours.
    • wear a hat for sun protection.
    • wear a lot of sunblock! And reapply throughout the day… Who cares if u can see the sunblock you will get colour on you anyway!

    Post-Holi care:

    • first wash off the colours as soon as you can gently with a foaming cleanser.
    • then use a cleansing oil to get rid of those oil soluble colours.
    • use a scrub gently on the skin to remove some tough to remove colour.
    • use a toothbrush for those tiny hard to reach crevices with some cleanser.
    • for the last remnants of the oil- massage oil into your skin then wash it off in round circular motions—this gets rid of that tough colour.
    • consider a facial like Silklove with exfoliates off the colour while infusing nutrients lost during holi and the post-holi color removal process!

    Holi nail care:

    • first moisturise those nails with lotions like Bioderma‘s Atoderm Baume.
    • apply vaseline jelly to your nails and cuticles prior to playing holi then reapply throughout the day.
    • scrub off color with a toothbrush gently.
    • moisturise right after and apply vaseline jelly again.

    Holi hair care:

    • pre-Holi no hair treatments like highlights/keratin/perms because they open up the hair cuticle and colour can get in
    • don’t shampoo the day of or the day before to keep the strands a little oily.
    • apply coconut oil the night before and the day of to create a barrier against the colour from penetrating those strands. The oil prevents the colour from penetrating.
    • tie up your hair.
    • wear a little sunblock (like a spray) on the hair to protect the strands from sun damage
      wear a hat.
    • after holi, shampoo the oil out and apply a conditioner, then re-shampoo and condition again.

    Have a safe and happy Holi everyone!

    Amaal Mallik & Singer-Duo Prakriti & Sukriti Kakar Drop The Indian Remix Of Dua Lipa’s ‘Levitating’

    href=”author/shubanka-sridhar”>Shubanka Sridhar , 27 Mar 2021Amaal Mallik, Dua Lipa, Sukriti & Prakriti Kakar

    Just yesterday, Dua Lipa released a remix of her global super-hit song, ‘Levitating‘, remixed by none other than our very own, super talented music producer — Amaal Mallik.

    Amaal Mallik brought in the twin sisters, Prakriti Kakar and Sukriti Kakar, to lend their vocals to the super energetic track.

    Speaking about this release, Dua Lipa said:

    I am so thrilled with the response from my Indian fans to ‘Future Nostalgia’. I had an amazing time in India in 2019, and so I always wanted to do something special for them. The Indian music icon Amaal Mallik has remixed the track, adding his touch with beautiful Indian instruments. This is my gift to my Indian fans, and I hope you all will love the remix as much as I do.

    The man behind this rendition, Amaal Mallik says:

    It is a tremendous feeling to be collaborating with such a talented pop star and global icon! Dua Lipa’s music is something we all love, hence it’s quite an honour for me to be doing the official India remix, giving an Indian touch to one of her biggest tracks. Prakriti Kakar, Sukriti Kakar, Kunaal Vermaa and I feel elated to be coming together to remix Levitating, one of the standout songs on the ‘Future Nostalgia’ album! Congratulations are in order for Dua on her Grammy win, and I think it’s the best time to be dropping this track of ours. I look forward to the reception.

    Sukriti Kakar, who lent her vocals to the track, adds:

    Dua Lipa was the reason I wrote my first single in 2019. I’ve been following her work so closely since the very beginning. We’ve been so inspired by her work for as long as I can remember. I’m so excited that I got to do this with my twin sister Prakriti, as well as Amaal Malik who produced the remix and gave it a desi touch, as we all have been long-time fans of Dua and her world of music!

    Prakriti Kakar ends by saying that Dua has been one of their biggest inspirations when it comes to her and her sister’s songwriting careers and that having sung a version of her charter buster song is both an honour and responsibility for them.

    Listen to their version of the track here:

    Amaal is said to have used traditional Indian elements such as the North-Indian ‘tumbi’ to give the song a desi twist. It’s a first-of-its-kind collaboration between Indian and international pop stars, and is sure something we are super pumped about.

    This latest rendition of the song comes just a week after Dua Lipa stunned global audiences with her performance of ‘Levitating’ at the 2021 Grammy Awards, where she won the Grammy Award for Best Pop Vocal Album for her 2020 album ‘Future Nostalgia’.

    The YouTube channel, Slayy Point, started off as a small idea converted into a full-fledged channel by Gautami and Abhyudaya. The two best friends were trying to figure ways to utilize their post junior college summer vacation. And the eagerness to explore the digital world helped them take their first step. Their initial videos were comical movie reviews and predicting cricket game results. Though these videos received great feedback, they soon realized that they weren’t passionate about these genres as they thought they would be. The YouTubers’ aim was to create relatable and entertaining content for Millenials around the country. And with this thought, they began their journey in the world of comedy and satire.

    The YouTubers made the most of the lockdown situation and started their second channel, Slayy Pop. The videos on this channel focus on the universe of gaming. Their characteristic Slay Point channel trait of hilarious commentary and some cross-references have been used in these videos quite well.

    Here’s what Gautami and Abhyudaya have to say about their journey,

    “We were just two young college go-ers, who were fascinated by the online world. We used to watch YouTube pretty much all day, study a lot and for a break we did play a lot of games, etc. One day we decided to pick up the camera and shoot some of our thoughts about an internet clique and that became our thing! Life was just the usual, before Binod showed up! Binod was that fortunate accident that literally changed our lives! We saw a surge in our subscribers which literally doubled! We’re a happy 4 million family, now trending on YouTube! Here’s a huge shoutout to all our friends and followers who inspire and motivate us to keep going! It’s unbelievable that a channel of this size could create a country wide trend!”
