It is a dream come true to portray the character of Herod Antipas in &TV’s Yeshu”, says Rudra Soni

Rudra Soni has been all over television shows and ads since a very young age and has managed to create a consistent fan base right from his childhood to his teens. Known to take up challenging roles at such an early age, Rudra is yet again all set to portray Herod Antipas in &TV’s latest offering ‘Yeshu’. In a candid conversation, Rudra expresses his joy of experimenting with negative characters, his inspirations and more.  1. You were on a short break before Yeshu. What made you think that the show will be a good comeback for you? I had to take a short break from acting due to my focus on education. Though I would not call it a comeback as the gap was not that long, I was looking forward to being a part of a show that would allow me to do something different and challenging. With Yeshu, I when I heard the narration of my character – King Antipas, I was excited and quite thrilled. The role is undoubtedly robust and impactful, and I am sure the viewers too will agree with me when th

NO ACTOR HAS YET BEEN APPROACHED” - SUHELDEV PRODUCERS CLARIFY

 Ever since it was announced that celebrated author Amish’s new book, ‘Suheldev – The King Who Saved India’ will be adapted into a feature film, there has been intense speculation in the media about who would play the title role. This isn’t surprising, considering the immense success of the book since it was released and the interest it has garnered around the world, especially amongst Amish’s fans.   Certain sections of the media have reported names of certain actors having been approached, accepted, or having turned down the title role of King Suheldev, despite no such development or official statement coming from the film’s makers.   To end this speculation, the film’s producers (Wakaoo Films, Casa Media and Immortal Studios) have issued a joint statement in this regard.   The producers categorically state:   “Nobody has checked with us before carrying these stories, and hence we felt the need to clarify and inform the public about the film’s progress till date.

Indigenous Green Jackfruit Flour That Helps Control Blood Sugar, Now Recognised by American Diabetes Association

 James Joseph, Founder & CEO, Jackfruit365 For a country like India, with varied cuisines and irregular eating habits, diabetes has turned out to be the gateway disease to other ailments. Since our traditional cuisines are rich in refined carbohydrates, diabetic patients have little options and they end up consuming food with a high glycemic index. James Joseph, a tech veteran who worked with the likes of Microsoft, Ford and 3M for over 25 years, accidentally discovered the benefits of green jackfruit for diabetes, which led him to develop a patented green jackfruit flour, which is clinically proven to control blood sugar. The clinical study results have been published in the American Diabetes Association journal, Diabetes.  In a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study, with results published in ADA journal Diabetes , a significant decrease in hba1c was observed within 90 days amongst participants taking 30g of Jackfruit365 green jackfruit ­flour daily, as part of thei

Clensta Covid 19 Protection Lotion – your long term shield against COVID 19 & the harmful effects of hand sanitisers

 2020 witnessed a drastic change in the lifestyle of people with the onset of COVID 19. The global outbreak of the virus has made sanitisers an integral part of our lives. As a short term solution, sanitisers mattered but the side effects weigh heavily against long term, frequent usage of the same. Frequent usage has long term side effects.   Sanitiser limitations and side effects:   1. High alcohol percentage – the constant application of alcohol-based sanitisersremoves all the moisture and oils of the skin causing irritation, burning and increases the risk of hand dermatitis or 'eczema.' This commonly manifests on the skin with redness, dryness, cracks, and even blisters that causespain and discomfort.   2. Several research studies have reported that some non-alcohol-based hand sanitisers containing an antibiotic compound called Triclosan are a health hazard as their overuse has negative effects on fertility, foetal development and asthma.

She always loved and admired my designs and, in a way, passed me this passion for jewellery, so I completely dedicate this brand to my mother.” She adds, “This Covid-19 pandemic has given tough times to all of us and in order to boost my morale and

Paras Arora (Dr. Pramod in Sony SAB’s Kaatelal & Sons)

 This year has taught us so many things. I always believed more in planning the future but the past few months made me understand the importance of living in the moment and enjoying it. Hence, I have stopped worrying about upcoming problems and instead started enjoying the present moment more. This definitely doesn’t mean spending every penny you have earned, without any planning.  While we didn’t have much work in terms of shoots, this year, it still feels like a very tiring year, mentally. Hence, I want to travel a lot in 2021, to relax and be recharged. The past year has also taught us how much we need our friends and family, especially at such low times. So, I will make sure I catch up with them more often this year. My New Year resolution is to concentrate on my fitness as I will try to hit the gym everyday. I have also wanted to learn playing the Guitar for a long time and hope to accomplish that this year.  To bring in the new year, I am planning to have a house-party with some

 ~ The striker has thrived in his first 8 games, but all he cares is the team’s success~ Goa, December 28, 2020: A week earlier, there was another request for an interaction from the media for Igor Angulo. 8 goals in as many games in your very first season in the Indian Super League generally leads to this kind of attention.

किसकी क्रिसमस विश होगी पूरी? एण्डटीवी के ‘भाबी जी घर पर हैं‘ में देखिये क्रिसमस स्पेशल

 यह सवाल बरसों से चला आ रहा है कि क्या सांता क्लॉज वाकई में है या यह सिर्फ एक काल्पनिक किरदार है। क्रिसमस का त्यौहार बस आने ही वाला है और ऐसे में एण्डटीवी पर दर्शकों के पसंदीदा हल्के-फुल्के मनोरंजक शो ‘भाबी जी घर पर हैं‘ में क्रिसमस का त्यौहार बहुत ही धूमधाम से मनाने की तैयारी चल रही है। इस सीजन में सभी की इच्छाएं पूरी होती हैं, इस मान्यता को मानते हुए मॉडर्न कॉलोनी में हर किसी की एक विश है। एक ओर मनमोहन तिवारी(रोहिताश्व गौर) कार लेने चाहते हैं, तो वहीं टीएमटी(विभूति माथुर, दीपेश भान और सलीम जैदी) जो सांता क्लॉज पर विश्वास नहीं करते उन्होंने उनसे 2000 रुपए की विश मांगी है। दूसरी तरफ विभूति नारायण मिश्रा (आसिफ शेख) ने अंगूरी भाबी से क्रिसमस स्टॉकिंग में अपनी विश डालने के लिए कहा ताकि वह उनकी इच्छा पूरी कर सके, लेकिन वह अपनी विश डालने की जगह, अंत में उस स्टॉकिंग में तिवारी की विश डाल देती है। यह पता लगने पर विभूति अंगूरी को तिवारी की प्रतिष्ठित मूछों को निकलवाने के लिए कहता है ताकि वह छुपे हुए डायमंड को ढूंढ सकें। क्या तिवारी अपने गौरव और अपनी मूछों को खो देगा? क्या उनकी विश पूरी होगी?अ
