“Timnasa has returned to her full glory”, said Pavitra Punia on making a comeback to Baalveer Returns

 1. How does it feel like to be back on the show?

It feels too good to reunite with the entire team. These are the people that I love the most. Baalveer Returns is my second home and I believe my whole unit was waiting for my comeback on the sets. I am ecstatic to be back. 

2. What was the crew and co-stars first reaction after meeting you on the set after such a long time?

Everyone was jumping for joy when I entered the sets on the very first day. All that was left was for them to carry me on their shoulders and shout HIP HIP HOORAY! Everyone was waiting for me for the last three months and now that I have returned, everyone is happy and excited to work together again. The energy on the set is high and everybody is thrilled to deliver their best. My co-stars were really happy upon my return as we all share a great bond. Getting into the shoot – mode and having fun while we are at it is something I have been looking forward to.

3. Are there any changes in Timnasa now?

On the sets, Timnasa’s place had been treasured and they have kept my room just the way that I had left it. Infact they have made few beautiful changes in my room. In terms of my character, Timnasa has not only returned, she is way more powerful and ruthless. She was and will continue to be the biggest threat to the Baalveers. 

4. What did you miss about your character Timnasa while you were away?

When I left Timnasa here in Baalveer Returns and went to the Bigg Boss house, I just missed my arms and ammunitions, especially when I used to get angry. I wished to have my super power and wand during those fights. 

5. What can your fans expect from Timnasa’s return on Baalveer Returns?

Since Timnasa is back on the show, there’s definitely going to be more drama and adventures now. This time Timnasa will not be defeated by Baalveer but she is determined to fight back furiously. With my return, the sequences will be packed with double power and the competition with Baalveer will be more exciting and dangerous.

6. We already know that your costume is so elaborate and heavy, so what’s your struggle in wearing it again after a huge time gap?

My costume is elaborate and heavy and I returned on the sets after three months. The very first day when I wore this dress, I got a severe headache, was feeling breathless and trapped inside something so heavy. I just wanted to get back to my casual clothes. Three months ago, when I used to be on set in Timnasa’s attire, in the span of 1 year, I got so used to the clothes and costume that I even wore the crown on the sets for 2 to 3 hours straight, while other co-actors used to remove their armors after a shot. On my very first day in this costume, I was removing my crown every other second. So, I really struggled adjusting to the look also the flow of character is somewhere diminished in me, I was taking several re-takes and a whole day to get back into Timnasa’s skin. It was indeed very difficult and challenging for me.

7. How has the experience been shooting with Shoaib as he will be your partner in crime in the show? 

The new season brought the underwater world of Shinkai. I personally love the world of Kaal Lok. I have been shooting with Shoaib and I he is a very capable artiste. He is now a part of our Kaal Lok gang. 

8. How is the reality TV different from the fiction show that you have been doing, as you have done it both now? So what is the difference that you feel?

Reality TV, as they say is all about being real, whoever you are in reality. You have to forget about camera, there is no action or cut, no lights that you have to face. There is very huge difference when you have live cameras around. While on the sets, the action, cut, roll and reel cameras are the reality for us here. So, I just can’t compare both of them. I will say the reality TV is easier than this reel shooting, being on screen camera, getting into someone else’s character with expressions that you have to express is difficult. On real cameras, you don’t need to think before you express or say anything, you just be the way you are but on reel cameras it’s all about expression, body language and your costume with lots of cut in between the shots. So, I think the reel world is a lot tougher than the real world.

9. While you were away from the show, did you get any message from fans to come back as Timnasa or people recognized you as same?

As soon as I got out of the Bigg Boss house the most exciting thing was that as much as people were sad about me being evicted from Bigg Boss house they were happier about me returning to Baalveer Returns and everyone started asking me about my comeback. I felt like I didn’t get a chance to be sad about leaving Bigg Boss. All the Baalveer Returns fans were actually waiting for me to get eliminated and get back to Baalveer Returns. 

10. Any message for your fans?

The audience has showered me with loads of love since the beginning. Even as an antagonist in the show I have been showered with so much love and affection. Now that I am back to Baalveer Returns, I request you all to keep loving and supporting me like you always have. I love you all.

A feeling of belongingness to take over &TV’s shows

 It is said that blood is thicker than water and, that is exactly what the upcoming

episodes of &TV’sHappu Ki Ultan Paltan, Bhabiji Ghar Par Hai, Gudiya Humari Sabhi Pe Bhari and Santoshi Maa Sunaye Vrat Kathayein will showcase. Daroga Happu Singh (Yogesh Tripathi) tries to make his kids put forth their best behaviour but, it fails miserably followed by a family bonding session while, Manmohan Tiwari (Rohitashv Gour) wishes to secure Angoori’s (Shubhangi Atre) future as he has contracted a life-threating illness. On the other hand, Radhe (Ravi Mahashabde) wishes to contest elections for Sipri but backs out as it costs his relationship with his daughter Gudiya (Sarika Bahroliya). In Santoshi Maa Sunaye Vrat Kathayein viewers will see Indresh’s (Ashish Kadian) devotion towards Mahadev in order to save Swati (Tanvi Dogra) who is battling for life. Yogesh Tripathi aka Daroga Happu Singh from Happu Ki Ultan Paltan shares, “It is a known fact that Happu’s kids have always been mischievous. In Amma’s(Himani Shivpuri) absence, Rajesh (Kamna Pathak) who was earlier planning to relax is extremely frustrated because of her naughty kids. To top it all, the kids irritate Happu so much that he ends up announcing that the most mischievous kid will be put out for donation. Scared and worried, the kids start obeying Happu and Rajesh. But the twist in tale comes when Hrithik(Aryan Prajapati) overhears Rajesh talking about how all of this was a lie. What mischief will the Paltan be up to now? Rohitashv Gour aka Manmohan Tiwari of Bhabiji Ghar Par Hai shares, “One evening TMT(Vaibhav Mathur, Deepesh Bhan and Saleem Zaidi) overhears Vibhuti (actor name please) and Tiwari’s conversation where Tiwari informs Vibhuti that he knows goons who will not hesitate to avenge him. Meanwhile TMT arrive at a plan to get a job by threatening Tiwari and then protecting him by becoming his bodyguards. Being at the receiving end of these threats, Tiwari falls ill and undertakes few tests only to realise that he has a life -threating illness. To secure Angoori’s future he gives his own ‘supari’ to Supari Dada so that she can avail his insurance sum. It turns out that the reports were false. What will happen to Tiwari now who ended up giving his own supari?” Ravi Mahashabde, Radhe from Gudiya Humari Sabhi Pe Bhari shares, “Radhe’s dream to become a councillor of Sipri is about to turn true when the Nagar Parishad elections are announced. But the journey isn’t smooth sailing as first, he had to compete with his own daughter Gudiya and later he is misunderstood by the Nagar Parishad officials of having three kids instead of two. Amongst all this chaos, Gudiya decides to declare that she is not his real daughter. Will Radhe standby Gudiya’s statement and qualify for the elections or will he spill the beans?”Indresh (Ashish Kadian) from Santoshi Maa Sunaye Vrat Kathayein shares, “With Babli shot dead, the blame falls on Swati who is now behind bars. On the other hand, we see Devesh (Dhiraj Rai) trading Swati’s freedom with Indresh in exchange for her companionship. There in the jail, an inmate stabs Swati on her shoulder and Indresh rushes to the hospital where she is declared serious on admission. Will Indresh’s bhakti towards Mahadev be able to Swati?”

Mr Gautam Adani | Thoughts on Team India's win at Gabba Test

 It was on June 25th, 1983 that India lifted the Cricket World Cup. I vividly remember the shock turning to joy as we heard the commentary. We were not supposed to have been in the quarterfinals, definitely not in the semifinals, and winning a world cup final in which the West Indies legends Clive Lloyd, Vivian Richards, and Gordon Greenidge in full flow…only lunatics would have given India a chance. For an optimist who had turned 21 the previous day, there could not have been a better way to start my 21st year…my country India was the world cricket champion!

Likewise, the Indian cricket team’s victory on January 19th, 2021 at the Gabba will go down in history as one of the greatest days of Indian cricket. These were two of the world’s best teams from two nations that share a terrific relation, two of the countries that send the best of the players to the IPL, and two teams that are known for their drive and attitude to want to win. It had been a terrific series with both teams tied 1:1 at the end of the third Test match and even the fourth Test match was open until the last session of Day 5. The setting could not have been more dramatic!

My objective is not to discuss which team won – it is more to discuss the power of youthfulness that is increasingly defining India as well as much of what we see around us happening in the world. Rishabh Pant, Mohammed Siraj, Navdeep Saini, Shubman Gill, Shardul Thakur, and Washington Sundar were testimony to what the new India can and will be. Attitude counts. Belief counts. Most of all Spirit counts. This was more than cricket. These youngsters reflected the attitude, belief, and spirit of our nation.

I was inspired enough after this win to look up the personal journeys of these youngsters.  Every single story is one of sacrifice, struggle, and intense dedication. None of them had it easy given the sheer numbers and depth of talent in Indian Cricket but because of this very reason, they demonstrated the resilience to handle the pressure. Getting a permanent slot in the Indian test team is increasingly getting harder and this was evident in the way these youngsters played. They are reflections of India’s new found attitude that is creating an ecosystem of youngsters with tremendous resilience, and they take chances - not just in cricket - but across all fields. These youngsters are a reflection of the fundamental principle that it is only those that are fearless about consequences and take the risks that deliver outsized results.

Our Gabba win is a testimony of a broader attitudinal change. Talent that takes risks will get to the top in a field where competition is intense. After all, to rise and shine within a population of 1.3 billion is no easy task. The Indian start-up world now has over 27,000 startup companies. This makes us the third largest start-up ecosystem in the world. I have absolutely very little doubt that this will only further accelerate. We are sitting on the cusp of an upcoming start-up explosion boom which I expect to lead to the creation of dozens of unicorns in the decade ahead and the several cascading innovations and fund flows that this will lead to other spin-off benefits. This is a real power that India’s youthfulness is giving our nation. This is the real manifestation of a growing middleclass with a demographic advantage.

There is so much I have learned from sports. From a corporate perspective, the Gabba win further reinforced my belief in the way we should be building organizations today – the best way you create outsized chances - is to give the youngsters a chance. Pick attitude over experience. Pick passion over polish. Pick the raw power of execution over planning.

Congratulations to both the teams for a super series – it brought out the best of 22 players from two great nations. It further reinforced my belief in the power of youth.

शेमारू टीवी अपने दर्शकों के लिए लेकर आ रहा है और एक लोकप्रिय शो, 'कोड रेड' ~ 23 जनवरी से शेमारू टीवी पर शुरू हो रहा है ‘कोड रेड’ ~

 नया साल शुरू हो चुका है और अब वक्त है यह सोचने का कि खूबसूरती के लिये नये साल का संकल्प आखिर क्यास होना चाहिये। हो सकता है आप पहले ही यह संकल्पर ले चुके हों। आंखों के नीचे काले घेरे, चेहरे पर दाग-धब्बेा, झुर्रिंयां, मुंहासे, चेहरे की असामान्यख रंगत, त्वहचा से जुड़ी ऐसी समस्या एं होती हैं, जो बिन बुलाये भी चली आती हैं! इससे बचने का कोई रास्ताप तो नहीं है, लेकिन हां कुछ जरूरी एहतियात इसकी गति को कम जरूर कर सकती हैं। 

सालों से हम जवां दिखने और स्वचस्थर रहने के नायाब लेकिन नैचुरल तरीके ढूंढ रहे हैं। यहां तीन आसान टिप्सइ दिये गये हैं, जिसकी मदद से स्किन को सेहतमंद बनाये रखने में मदद मिल सकती है: 

अपनी स्किन को दें विटामिन ई की खुराक 

हर मौसम में स्किन से जुड़ी कई सारी समस्या ओं में विटामिन ई को काफी लाभकारी माना गया है। विटामिन ई का डोज नर्व्स को मजबूत बनाता है और स्किन को अंदर से पोषण देता है। सबसे अच्छीफ बात है कि आपको अपने खाने में अलग से विटामिन ई का सप्लीतमेंट लेने की जरूरत नहीं है। बादाम जैसी खाने की चीजों में हेल्दीन फैट्स और विटामिन ई (अल्फा -टोकोफेरॉल) होते हैं, जिनमें एंटी-एंजिंग के गुण पाये गये हैं। इससे स्किन की सेहत को फायदा मिल सकता है। अपने ब्यू‍टी रीजिम में रोजाना बादाम खाने की आदत डालें। चाहे आप घर पर हों, काम पर या फिर सफर कर रहे हों,बादाम कभी भी कहीं भी खाया जा सकता है। 

अपनी स्किन को मॉइश्च राइज करें 

हर दिन स्किन को मॉइश्चयराइज करने से अत्यभधिक सूखेपन या तैलीयपन होने की आशंका कम हो सकती है। दोनों ही स्थितियां स्किन के लिये नुकसानदायक हैं और इससे एक्नेस जैसी त्वपचा की आम समस्यात हो सकती है। साथ ही यह खुजली पैदा करने वाले कारणों को रोकने में भी मदद कर सकता है। हालांकि, मॉइश्च राइजर का चुनाव करने के दौरान अपनी स्किन का प्रकार और मौसम को ध्याकन में रखना बहुत जरूरी है। मॉइश्चाराइजर का इस्ते माल करने के अलावा, पर्याप्तस मात्रा में पानी पीने से भी आपकी स्किन को नमी देने में मदद मिलती है, इसकी पूर्ति भी शरीर के अंदर से होती है!

नियमित रूप से एक्सरफोलिएट करें 

नैचुरल स्किनकेयर की दिनचर्या में सबसे अच्छीक चीज होगी, नियमित रूप से एक्सपफोलिएशन को शामिल करना। एक्सिफोलिएशन एक्नेे के दाग-धब्बोंी, बेजान त्वसचा, ब्लैनकहेड्स और त्वइचा से जुड़ी कई अन्य समस्या ओं में बहुत कारगर होता है। एक आम और बेहतर बॉडी एक्सगफोलिएशन रूटीन के लिये अपने रेग्युसलर बॉडी क्लींिजर के साथ नैचुरल ब्रिसल वाले ब्रश, एक्स‍फोलिएटिंग ग्लकव या लूफा का प्रयोग करें। हफ्ते में दो या तीन बार अपनी स्किन को एक्स फोलिएट करें। इससे आपकी त्वसचा बेहतर हो जायेगी, उसे ज्याकदा जोर से रगड़ने की जरूरत नहीं होती!

*Health Insurance and its significance for the youth*

 Being in your 20s can be an exciting phase of one’s life. When they start their career, there are many aspirations, targets, goals, and liabilities that vie a piece of the salary-pie. On one hand, there could be impulse spending, while on the other hand, there may be student loans that are yet to be written off. This is a phase which thereby calls for financial planning. While the youngsters are aware that they should be putting their money aside in monthly savings, it is important to shed light on the importance and benefits of covering themselves and their families’ health through a comprehensive health insurance plan. 

Youngsters often overlook Health Insurance due to multiple misconceptions or beliefs. 

Youngsters are not faced with health complications, hence the requirement for insurance takes a back-seat - While it is true that medical complications increase with age, it cannot be assumed that youngsters are immune to health-related issues. The pace of modern life and lifestyle is changing which brings its own set of stresses and challenges. One can no longer correlate diseases and age. Also, people of any age can be affected by certain events like accidents and health insurance policies cover such eventualities as well. It also makes sense to take insurance when you are young and healthy because as you grow older and beset by health-related problems, it becomes difficult to get insurance cover and even if available, it might come in a restricted form.

Often the youth believe that they are single and young, so health insurance is not a priority for them - Health insurance is important irrespective of one’s marital status. This is because most insurance plans are scalable, and one can alter the cover as per the changing requirements through their lifecycle. Not to forget, a family floater also covers your dependent parents.

Corporates also provide insurance so the youth do not feel the need to get an additional personal health insurance plan - Corporate insurance covers you only as long as you are in employment with a particular company and it will cease once you leave the organisation. It also has certain restrictions in terms of limited sum insured and sometimes cappings. In such a situation, it makes sense to have a separate health insurance policy for self and family which will provide continuous coverage even at the time of change in employment. Not to forget that individual health plans can be purchased after evaluating the specific requirement of the individual and their family whereas corporate policies are usually standard across the organization/grades.

Buying Health Insurance also comes with a key benefit that will help one save tax under section 80D of the Income Tax law.

Ample of options are available ranging from a Sum Insured of Rs. 50,000 to Rs. 30,00,000 and tenure of 1 to 2 years.

Things to keep in mind:

• Firstly, evaluate your family’s risk factors since they vary from one individual to another depending on age, gender, history of family illnesses, work-life and even geography. Hence the requirement has to be assessed and an adequate cover must be taken.

• One must look for a policy which offers a cumulative bonus. Cumulative bonus leads to annual increasing addition in sum insured for not claiming in the policy.

• It is also important to understand Sub Limits. If the policy has sub-limits, then the Claim cover will be up to the sub limited amount only. Any amount on top will be paid from one’s own pocket.

• It is extremely significant to bear medical inflation in mind. Health insurance is taken for ensuring a safer future with medical expenses covered. It is smart to keep a 7-10% medical inflation rate in mind while deciding policy coverage.

An adequate and comprehensive health insurance cover will provide us with assurance and peace of mind dono.

Let's do something better, let's be an Indori: Atul Malikram, co-founder, PR 24x7

 According to Indian philosophy and

Ayurveda, like the universe, our human body is also made up of five elements: earth, air, water, fire, and space. These five elements are associated with the overall health of a human being. On the other hand, to get the citizenship of a country, it is necessary to have 05 documents which are: Adhar card, PAN card, Voter ID, Ration card, and domicile certificate. Naturally, those seeking citizenship of a particular country need to prove their identity and have the required documents. It is easy to acquire the necessary documents to be a countryman, but it is very difficult to be a city dweller. Yes, I am talking about being a city dweller. Before venturing further, let me take you to the heart of Madhya Pradesh- Indore.

There is something different about Indore where people start their days by greeting each other saying, “Bhiyo ram”. No where can you find a city such as Indore in the whole world. Whether it is about servicing needy people, the commitment of a clean Indore, or social service, Indoris are always ready to help. Indore is the only city in the world with innumerable specialties. People here are big foodies. Eating Poha-Jalebis early in the morning or chats in the midnight at Sarafa or Chappan, Indoris spend their life merrily and heartily. The streets of Sarafa and Chhappan have been the heart of Indore for a long time, and will always be. Joshi ji's Dahi Bade or Chiman Bagh's Kadhi-faafde, Neema's Ice Cream or Ravi aur Laal Balti ki Aloo ki Kachori, Sarafa's Bhutte ka Kis or Jain's Garadu, Anna Bhaiya's Paan or Prashant's Pohe, the passion and excitement of tasting variety of dishes can only be found in Indoris.

Rajwada is the pride of Indore. If India wins a World Cup, then the entire city is gathered at Rajwada Chowk to celebrate, which also has a very unique name. Would you like to know? It is called Indori Jamavra. This happens at every big and small festival. Not only celebrations but we Indoris stay together in bad times as well. Whether it is the death of a political leader or the loss of a match, the entire city mourns together at Rajwada-Chowk. In this way, Indoris are companions of happiness and sorrow. In obedience to the orders of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, people were gathered at Rajwada to clap, whistle and ring. Not only this, but they were gathered at Indore Rajwada Chowk to see the atmosphere of the city after the lockdown. People here always stand in a united front. No one can stop them if they are determined to do something.

This warmth and love can only be seen in Indore. Now you know why I said that it is easy to be a countryman but it is very difficult to be a city dweller like an Indories are. Being an Indori may be difficult but not impossible. So let's do something good, let's be an Indori.

पवन कल्याण ने अयोध्या श्री राम मंदिर निर्माण के लिए दिए 30 लाख रुपए

 जनसेना पार्टी के अध्यक्ष श्री पवन कल्याण ने अयोध्या राम मंदिर के निर्माण हेतु 30 लाख रुपये से अधिक का दान आरएसएस के राज्य प्रमुख श्री भरतजी को दिया है। इसके अलावा उन्होंने अपने निजी कर्मचारियों द्वारा एकत्र किए गए 11,000 रुपये का चेक भी दिया।

इस पर अधिक जानकारी देते हुए पवन कल्याण ने कहा, "भगवान श्री रामचंद्र धर्म और सहिष्णुता के प्रतीक हैं, उनके द्वारा दिखाए गए बलिदान और बहादुरी सभी के लिए एक प्रेरणा है। भारत ने भगवान श्री राम द्वारा बनाए गए मार्ग पर चलने के कारण कई हमले झेले हैं। इसलिए, इस तरह के धर्म की प्रतिकृति के लिए अयोध्या में मंदिर निर्माण हेतु एकजुटता का विस्तार करना सभी की जिम्मेदारी है। मैं राम मंदिर के निर्माण के लिए अपने हिस्से के रूप में 30 लाख रुपये का दान कर रहा हूं। मेरे दान के बारे में सुनकर, मेरे व्यक्तिगत स्टाफ के सदस्यों सहित केवल हिंदुओं ने ही नहीं, बल्कि मुस्लिमों और ईसाइयों ने भी इसी उद्देश्य के लिए 11,000 रुपये जुटाए हैं। पूर्व मंत्री और भाजपा नेता डॉ कामिनेनी श्रीनिवास और आरएसएस के प्रतिनिधियों ने कार्यक्रम में भाग लिया।

काश! मैं भी बॉस होता के सपने को साकार करता है पीआर 24ग7

 जब भी एक एम्प्लॉयी किसी कंपनी में जॉब करता हैए तो वह स्वयं के लिए तथा कंपनी के हित के लिए हजारों सपनों का तानाण्बाना बुनता है। लेकिन ख्यालों की इस झड़ी को यह सोच कर मन में ही दबाए रखता है कि उसकी बात सार्थक है भी या नहीं या फिर जब वह बॉस या अन्य एम्प्लॉयी से अपने विचार साझा करे तो कहीं हंसी का पात्र न बन जाए। इस प्रकार कंपनी के हित की न जाने कितनी ही बातें उसके मन में दबीण्कुची सी रह जाती हैं जिन्हें बाहर लाने के लिए एक सहारे मात्र की जरुरत होती है।


भारत की प्रमुख पीआर कंपनी पीआर 24ग7 के फाउंडर अतुल मलिकराम बताते हैं जैसा कि हम सभी जानते हैं कि हर एक इंसान का अपना स्वतंत्र नज़रिया और विचार होते हैंए जिनके द्वारा वह अपने व्यक्तित्व का सृजन करता है। समान भाव किसी कंपनी में जॉब करने वाले एम्प्लॉयी के मन में भी होते हैंए जो वह अपनी कर्मस्थली पर बदलाव के रूप में देखना चाहता है। इन भावों को निःसंकोच बाहर आने का मार्ग मिल सकें इस हेतु कंपनी की अनूठी परम्परानुसार प्रत्येक नववर्ष हर एक एम्प्लॉयी को एक दिन का बॉस बनने का अवसर प्रदान किया जाता है। इस एक दिन उसका कंपनी पर पूर्णतः अधिकार होता है यानि अपने नज़रिए से वह कंपनी में कई बदलाव कर सकता है। इस सेशन को पीएसडी यपर्सन ऑन स्पेशल ड्यूटी नाम से संबोधित किया गया हैं जिसमें एम्प्लॉयी हर एक कार्य कर सकता है जिसका अधिकार सिर्फ बॉस को होता है।


जनवरी के शुरुआती हफ्ते में आयोजित इस पीएसडी सेशन में प्रत्येक एम्प्लॉयी को बॉस बनने का मौका दिया गया जिसके चलते प्रतिदिन विभिन्न महत्वपूर्ण विषयों पर लर्निंग सेशन का संचालन किया गया ऑफिस में नए नियमों के चलते स्पोर्ट्स एक्टिविटीज शुरू की गई यहाँ तक कि बढ़ण्चढ़ कर प्रतियोगिताओं आदि में हिस्सा लेने और पूरे दिन अनुशासित रहने वाले एम्प्लॉयीज को काफी सारे रिवार्ड्स भी दिए गए। हर कंपनी को अपने एम्प्लॉयीज के लिए यह सेशन जरूर रखना चाहिए जिससे कंपनी के प्रति उनकी सकारात्मक सोच बाहर आ सके।

एण्डटीवी के शो ‘भाबी जी घर पर हैं‘ में अनिता की भूमिका के लिए नेहा पेंडसे बिलकुल सही पसंद हैं: आसिफ शेख

 जैसे हर किसी ने पूरे जोश और उत्साह के साथ 2021 का

स्वागत किया है, वैसे ही, प्रशंसक एण्डटीवी के ‘भाबी जी घर पर हैं‘ में नेहा पेंडसे का नई अनिता भाबी के रूप में स्वागत करने के लिए बिलकुल तैयार हैं। नेहा के अनिता भाबी बनने की खबर फौरन ही इंडस्ट्री और सोशल मीडिया में सुर्खियों में आ गई थी। और अब अनिता के ऑन-स्क्रीन पति विभूति नारायण मिश्रा (आसिफ शेख) भी इस खबर पर अपना उत्साह और अपनी खुशी जाहिर करने वाले दल में शामिल हो गए हैं। इस पर विभूति नारायण मिश्रा उर्फ आसिफ शेख का कहना है, ‘‘अगली अनिता भाबी कौन होंगी, इसे लेकर काफी अनुमान लगाए जा रहे थे और इस किरदार के लिए एक नाम का फैसला करना जरूरी था। मैं एक सीन के जरिए ऑडिशंस का लगातार हिस्सा बना रहा ताकि उनकी ऑन-स्क्रीन केमिस्ट्री का पता चल सके। लेकिन मैं बिलकुल मजाक नहीं कर रहा, जैसे ही हमने नेहा के साथ शॉट लिया, हमें समझ आ गया कि यही वह शख्स हैं जो इस भूमिका के लिए बिल्कुल फिट हैं - ये हम सबका निर्णय था। उनके आत्मविश्वास और कॉमेडी की समझ ने मुझे खुशी से भर दिया था। नेहा आत्मविश्वासी हैं, और मैंने अब तक जितना भी देखा है उन्होंने बहुत ही खूबसूरत तरीके से अपने सभी सीन्स दिए हैं; निस्संदेह वह अनिता की भूमिका के लिए बिलकुल सही पसंद हैं। मुझे यकीन है कि जब उनकी एंट्री होगी तो प्रशंसक उनके कठिन परिश्रम को जरूर पसंद करेंगे। हम सभी उनके साथ शूटिंग शुरू करने का बेसब्री से इंतजार कर रहे हैं। फिलहाल, नेहा और मैं पूरी कोशिश करेंगे कि हम अपनी मनमौजी केमिस्ट्री से लगातार अपने दर्शकों का मनोरंजन करते रहें और उन्हें मजेदार एपिसोड्स दे।‘‘

गुड़िया हमारी सभी पे भारी एक असली, वास्तविक और दुर्लभ खोज है‘‘ एण्डटीवी के अमरूद वाले बाबा रवि झंकाल ने कहा

 एण्डटीवी के शो ‘गुड़िया हमारी सभी पे भारी‘ के दर्शकों के साथ दिल के तार जुड़े हैं, जोकि पूरे दिल से इस शो के हर सीन और शो की वास्तविकता का आनंद लेते हैं। अब इस शो के कलाकारों के साथ रवि झंकाल का एक और जाना-माना नाम जुड़ने जा रहा है, जोकि इस शो में अमरूद वाले बाबा के रूप में एंट्री करने के लिए बिलकुल तैयार हैं। रवि के साथ खुल्लम-खुल्ला बातचीत में, उन्होंने अपनी भूमिका के बारे में और टेलीविजन इंडस्ट्री में अपने अनुभव के बारे में बात की जोकि हमें 80 के दशक में ले जाता है।


1ण् हमें अपने अब तक के सफर के बारे में थोड़ा विस्तार से बताइए?

मैं पिछले 30 सालों से मुंबई में रह रहा हूं और मैंने अपनी ग्रेजुएशन नेशनल स्कूल ऑफ ड्रामा से पूरी की है। मैं बहुत भाग्यशाली हूं कि मैंने एंटरटेनमेंट इंडस्ट्री के सभी क्षेत्रों का अनुभव किया है। टेलीविजन से लेकर फिल्म और थिएटर में प्ले तक, मुझे सब कुछ करने का सौभाग्य प्राप्त हुआ है। लगभग 4000 एपिसोड्स पूरे करने के बाद, मैंने 100 से थोड़े ज्यादा नाटक और करीब-करीब 80 फिल्मों में काम किया है, मैं खुद को एक अच्छा और प्रतिष्ठित कलाकार मानता हूं।  


2ण् हमें शो में अपने किरदार के बारे में कुछ बताइए?

गुड़िया हमारी सभी पे भारी शो में मैं अमरुद बाबा की भूमिका निभाते हुए नजर आऊंगा। क्योंकि वो वैसे ही दिखते हैं और वैसे ही बातचीत भी करते हैं, लेकिन वह दिल से बिलकुल झूठा और धोखेबाज है और असलियत ये है कि वह एक ढोंगी बाबा है। किसी भी तरह, वह गुड़िया के घर में प्रवेश करता है और वह उनसे बस उतने ही पैसे निकालने की कोशिश करता हैं जितना की वह इन मासूम घरवालों के घर से लेकर निकल पाए। वह बहुत ही बदनाम है और वह उनके छोटे से जन्नत जैसे घर में परेशानी लेकर आएगा।  


3ण् आप अब तक कई शोज का हिस्सा रह चुके हैं, एण्डटीवी का शो ‘गुड़िया हमारी सभी पे भारी‘ बाकी सभी शोज से किस तरह से अलग है?

मैं टेलीविजन इंडस्ट्री का तबसे हिस्सा हूं जब से इसकी भारत में शुरूआत हुई है। साल 2004 से अब तक, मेरा टेलीविजन इंडस्ट्री और उसकी विभिन्न शैलियों के साथ एक लम्बा अनुभव रहा है। तो यह कहना बिलकुल सुरक्षित होगा कि मेरे पास एक बहुत ही समृद्ध अनुभव है जो इस इंडस्ट्री ने मुझे दिया है। मुझे यह बताकर बहुत खुशी हो रही है कि गुड़िया हमारी सभी पे भारी ने मेरा बहुत अच्छा स्वागत किया है, इस शो की टीम सभी कामों को बिलकुल सही तरीके और सावधानी के साथ करती है और वह सभी बहुत प्रोफेशनल हैं। इस शो की एक खास बात जिसने मेरा दिल छू लिया वो ये है कि यह शो किरदारों को और उनकी भाषा को विकसित करने पर फोकस करता है। दरअसल तथ्य ये है कि इस शो के प्रमुख कलाकारों में से अधिकतर लोग मध्य प्रदेश से जुड़े हुए हैं इसकी वजह से वो लोग उनकी भाषा में बहुत सहज हैं। अपनी भाषा बोलने में लोगों को मजा आता है और इसी वजह से, वो लोगांे के साथ खुद को जोड़ पाते हैं और यही मजबूत तथ्य इस शो को दूसरे बाकी शोज से बिलकुल अलग बनाता है। इस शो की कास्टिंग ध्यान में रखकर बहुत ही अच्छी तरह से की गई है ताकि एक कलाकार जहां उन्हें बातचीत करने में चुनौती का सामना करना पड़ता है वो न करना पड़े और वो मुश्किल स्पॉट में न आए।  


4ण् कोई ऐसा ड्रीम किरदार जो अपने निभाया हो या फिर आप निभाना चाहते हों?

मेरे द्वारा निभाए गए किरदारों की कई लिस्ट है, लेकिन मेरे लिए जो सबसे ज्यादा मायने रखता है वो ये हैं कि दर्शक जब भी आपकी सराहना करें तो वो आपको आपके किरदार के माध्यम से पहचाने न कि आपके असली नाम से। आप जानते हैं कि आप तब सफल होते हैं जब दर्शकों के दिलों-दिमाग पर आपके किरदार की एक यादगार छवि बन जाती है। मैंने एक छक्के की भूमिका निभाई थी और मेरे लिए वो बहुत ही अनोखा और कभी न भूलने वाला अनुभव था। ऐसा बहुत ही कम होता है जब आपको इस तरह की मजबूत भूमिका को निभाने का मौका मिलता है और मैंने जब इसे परफॉर्म किया यह मेरे लिए बहुत ही स्पेशल था।


5ण् इसकी कहानी क्या है?

गुड़िया (सारिका बहरोलिया) अपनी मां सरला (समता सागर) से ज्यादा बड़ी भक्त बनने के लिए उनके खिलाफ प्रतिस्पर्धा करती है और वह एक बेहतर सन्यासी बन जाती है क्योंकि सरला उसके बिना ही तीर्थयात्रा पर निकल जाती है। अपनी योग्यता और इस तथ्य को साबित करने के लिए कि पहाड़ी बाबा ही सिर्फ पुजारी नहीं है जोकि चमत्कार कर सकते हैं, गुड़िया उनसे भी ज्यादा शक्तिशाली और पवित्र बाबा को ढूंढ़ने के लिए निकल जाती है। वह अमरूद वाले बाबा के पास पहुंच जाती है और उनसे वह अपने आप को फॉलोअर के रूप में स्वीकार करने की गुजारिश करती है, यहां तक कि वह उन्हें अपने घर में रहने का प्रस्ताव भी देती है। पूरे गांव में यह बात फैल जाती है कि एक पवित्र और ज्ञानी साधू उन सबके बीच में हैं और सभी उनका आशीर्वाद लेने के लिए इक्ट्ठा हो जाते हैं। भोले-भाले गांव वाले, अपना धन और सामान बाबा को अर्पित करने के लिए आगे बढ़ते हैं लेकिन अमरूद वाले बाबा के बुरे पहलू के बारे में कोई नहीं जानता है।


6ण् आपकी दर्शकों से और इस शो से क्या उम्मीदे हैं?

मैं सभी दर्शकों और अपने प्रशंसकों से यही गुजारिश करना चाहूंगा कि वह ये शो देखें क्योंकि यह एक असली, उचित और बिलकुल अलग खोज है। मैंने इस भूमिका के लिए जो तैयारियां कि हैं उसमें मैंने मेरे लुक्स से ज्यादा मेरे भाषण के तरीके पर ध्यान दिया है क्योंकि सभी कलाकार बहुत ही प्रतिभाशाली है और उनकी भाषा में बहुत आत्मविश्वास है। मेरे लिए उनके बोलचाल के तरीके को सीखना एक चुनौती था क्योंकि यह वाकई में हैं, लेकिन मेरे दिमाग में ये बिलकुल स्पष्ट था कि मुझे कुछ नया सीखना है और अपने कौशल को और ज्यादा बेहतरीन करना है। मैं उम्मीद करता हूं कि भविष्य में मैं और अधिक सच्चे और अच्छे इरादों पर आधारित शोज देखूं। इसलिए, मेरी शो से उम्मीदंे बहुत अधिक हैं और दर्शकों के लिए मेरी ये उम्मीद हैं कि वह गुड़िया और उनके परिवार की इस खूबसूरत कहानी का पूरा आनंद लें। मैं समता सागर के बारे में कहना चाहूंगा जिन्होंने इस शो पर बहुत ही मेहनत और सटीकता से काम किया है क्योंकि गुड़िया हमारी सभी पे भारी सबसे बेहतरीन शोज में से एक है और ऐसा हमेशा नहीं होता जब आपको ऐसे किसी शो के साथ काम करने का मौका मिलता है।


‘गुड़िया हमारी सभी पे भारी‘ में रवि झंकाल को अमरूद बाबा के रूप में देखिए, हर सोमवार से शुक्रवार, रात 9रू30 बजे सिर्फ एण्डटीवी पर

Celebrate 101% Shuddh Deshbhakti on Republic Day with Zee Bollywood Premiere of GOLD

 Hamre gharme Inquilab Zindabad pahle hoga, phir nasta hoga! This Republic Day, join the 101% Shuddh Republic Day spirit and celebration with Zee Bollywood with their premiere of GOLD at 1 PM. With an unmatchable patriotic fervor, GOLD tells the glorious tale of India’s first ever Gold medal won as a free nation by the vivacious and underrated Indian team in 1948 Olympic games. Directed by Reema Kagti, the movie features a stunning cast including Akshay Kumar, Mouni Roy, Kunal Kapoor, Vineet Kumar Singh, Amit Sadh and Sunny Kaushal. 

Talking about the film, Kunal Kapoor Said, “GOLD recounts the glorious moments from our nation’s history. From the happiness of being a free country to the struggle of the partition and team spirit, GOLD is a story that had to be told and I feel privileged to be a part of a project such as this. Our nation, with all its strengths and weaknesses, is blooming beautifully and creating history at every juncture, often with our magnificent sports players. Zee Bollywood premiere of GOLD on Republic Day is going to be great, I’m truly looking forward to it.”

“Do sau saal ki Ghulami ka Badla” - this strong line captures the emotion that drove the victory of India’s first ever Gold Medal as a free nation at the Olympics. Tapan Das was a junior manager for the British Indian hockey team in 1936 when they won in the finals against Germany in Berlin. Twelve years later, he makes a successful return at the Olympics, this time as the joint manager, with a dream to defeat the British in London and win gold. Das is determined to build a team and compete. Scouting for talent across the nation, he recruits Raghubir Pratap Singh, a Nawab and an enthusiastic player, Imtiaz Shah, a reliable player with leadership skills, Himmat Singh, a promising talent from Punjab and others. In this endeavor, he’s assisted by retired hockey captain Samrat and Das’ own wife Monobina. How India wins the prestigious 1st Olympic Gold against all odds forms the rest of the story.
