BROUGHT TO YOU BY
For all the women we are... and the men!
EDITOR-IN-CHIEF Manju Ramanan
Endowed with a team that is 80 percent women, March just seems to be the perfect month to laud all the women in my life and the supportive men. While being women keeps us buzzing through the day with a multitude of activities be it writing, subbing, uploading, correcting, interviewing, calling, convincing, selling, selling more and nailing deals, it taps into one of our biggest assets as women – being emotionally intelligent. Through all our activities runs this strain of tapping into the finer, rather subliminal aspects of people and their behavior. Mentoring us and supporting us are the men who make it all work. My team here!

PRIYANKA CHOPRA JONAS TALKS ALL ABOUT HER UPCOMING PROJECTS AND HER BOOK UNFINISHED
With Hope reaching Mars, Dubai announced the successful completion of the Emirates Mars Mission. NASA too announced the successful landing of their Perseverance rover on the red planet. Not too long ago, India had become the first country to successfully enter the planet’s orbit on its first try with its Mars Orbiter Mission! With these jubilant achievements, the dynamic space-women associated with these successful projects - the real-life stars Sarah Amiri, Swati Mohan, Ritu Karidhal, Anuradha TK, Nandini Harinath - have earned their own space in history too! Men are from Mars they say. Well that may or may not be, but it’s certainly the women who’ve been putting mankind out there! Closer home, the reel stars too have been breaking barriers albeit in the OTT space! Interestingly, it’s no more about men versus women anymore. In fact, terms like women-centric are actually becoming redundant on the platform. Content is being defined by quality, not by genders of characters or makers. So you have women characters - flaunting their flaws fearlessly, embracing their imperfections, breaking norms and taboos, shattering glass ceilings, redefining societal roles, and cocking a snoot at the stereotypes. Not too different from the real us, right? And not just on OTT… What was earlier a one-off with Smita Patil or a Shabana Azmi decades ago, followed by path-breaker Tabu and later Vidya Balan, Rani Mukerji... has now become the new normal with the reigning and newer crop in Bollywood – Kangana Ranaut, Priyanka Chopra Jonas, Deepika Padukone, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Alia Bhatt, Sonam K Ahuja, Konkona SenSharma, Taapsee Pannu, Bhumi Pednekar… Women asserting their power onscreen and at the Box Office with or without their heroes! Yes, the pay disparity continues to heckle the fun, but the ball’s been set rolling and it’s only a matter of time before it gains enough momentum to break this barricade on the way to equality at workplace too. Yes, while this month celebrates these women achievers and power-women, reel stars and the real ones, it also celebrates each and every woman from all walks of life who strives hard each day in multiple roles, as mother, daughter, sister, wife, friend, homemaker, professional… Women of substance who conquer new challenges every day. And while at it, let us also cheer not just the women, but also the men who support them all along in their pursuits of happiness and achieving their dreams too. Above it all, never doubt what Beyoncé said, ‘‘Who run the world? Girls!’

BON VOYAGE! Childhood sweethearts Natasha Dalal and Varun Dhawan finally embarked on the next stage of their relationship after yeears of courtship. They had planned an exotic wedding in Vietnam last year but COVID-19 played spoilsport. So they decided to go for a small wedding ceremony instead. The couple got married at a private ceremony in Alibaug, with only immediate family and close family friends in attendance.
VARUN DHAWAN AND NATASHA DALAL TIE THE KNOT It’s been almost two years since the first wave of rumours around Varun Dhawan and Natasha Dalal’s wedding started. Last year, the rumour was that they’d get married in October 2020 but the pandemic played spoilsport. Though the wedding got postponed, speculations didn’t die out as pictures of Natasha celebrating Karwachauth with Varun’s mother surfaced on the internet. Varun Dhawan and Natasha Dalal finally tied the knot on January 24 in a private ceremony at Alibaug. They both look gorgeous together. While Varun wore a Manish Malhotra creation, Natasha was draped in her own label. Right from the decor to the intimate celebrations, it all looked absolutely splendid. There was a no-phone policy at the ceremony. Varun broke the news through his Instagram account by sharing a photo of the ceremony. Its caption read -- Life long love just became official -- and just like that sent his fans into throes of celebbration. 10 FILMFARE MIDDLE EAST March 2021

ANUSHKA SHARMA AND VIRAT KOHLI WELCOME A BABY GIRL Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli are loved by millions worldwide and any news regarding them flares up like wildfire on the internet. The year 2020 had a pall of gloom hanging on it. The news that Virushka were expecting their first child came as a ray of sunshine that lifted our mood a bit. Virat even took paternity leave away from the crucial Australian test series to be with Anushka during the delivery.The couple wanted a bit of privacy when the moment came and requested the press to show restraint. They became proud parents to a baby girl on January 11. An ecstatic Virat broke the news on social media. He wrote, “We are thrilled to share with you that we have been blessed with a baby girl this afternoon. We thank you all for your love, prayers and good wishes. Anushka and the baby are both healthy and we are feeling beyond blessed to start this new chapter of our lives. We hope that you can respect our privacy at this time. Love, Virat.” We congratulate Virat and Anushka for the same.
DEEPIKA PADUKONE ALL SET TO PLAY VILLAIN IN DHOOM 4? YRF plans to launch some of their biggest films in the coming years, But if there is one film that has always been the talk of the town, it’s the Dhoom franchise. The film which is known for its stylish chase sequences and exotic locations has always surprised us, when it comes to casting the antagonist. It started off with John Abraham in the first instalment, Hrithik Roshan in the second and Aamir Khan in the third. Now, we hear that YRF has decided to up the ante by introducing a female villain. Yes, you heard that right. We hear that Deepika Padukone is in talks to star in Dhoom 4. She will play the antagonist this time. Deepika Padukone is keen for this one but has to get her dates sorted before she signs on the dotted line. Meanwhile, Deepika has teamed up with YRF for Pathan which reunites her with Shah Rukh Khan. She also has Shakun Batra’s next costarring Siddhant Chaturvedi and Ananya Panday.

PRP THERAPY FOR HAIR GROWTH Using biotin for hair has been common since many years due to its benefits and qualities; it is a type of B vitamin commonly used in cosmetic treatments to treat problems such as dermatitis, or weak nails and hair. WHAT ARE PRP AND STEM CELLS? Stem cells are basic building-block cells that have the ability to develop into specialized cell types in the human body and so, have the ability to repair and heal rapidly. Taken from your own fat tissue and, when concentrated and injected into your scalp, they reverse the shrinking of hair follicles and promote hair growth. Platelet-rich plasma, is a concentration of platelets and plasma-derived from the patient’s own blood, not fat. A rich source of specialized proteins, it contains growth factors and cytokines, which can promote hair growth and healing. WHO CAN BENEFIT FROM STEM CELLS AND PRP? Stem cell therapy and PRP therapy have been shown to be most effective for: Those in the early stages of hair loss Patients who are not viable candidates for surgery Women who prefer to avoid hair surgery Those who don’t have enough quality donor hair for a transplant PRP therapy can be performed in your hair restoration doctor’s office. A small sample of your blood is drawn, and spun at high speed to separate the platelets. It is injected directly into the thinning scalp and takes about 10 minutes. You can resume activities right away. In the stem cell plus PRP procedure, your doctor will perform a mini-liposuction to obtain 1 to 2 ounces of adipose (fat) tissue from your abdominal area. Stem cells are then extracted, combined with the PRP, and injected into the scalp. It takes less than four hours. It may take 8 months before you notice an improvement in hair density. The therapy triggers your body’s natural healing processes, and you will see effective results. At the American Aesthetic Medical Center we are specialised in all types of hair treatments and we have the most skilled and experienced medical team.

EVERY TIME YOU THINK YOU’RE GETTING TO KNOW WHAT SHE’S LIKE , PRIYANKA CHOPRA JONAS SURPRISES YOU BY HER CHOICES... WHILE THE WORLD WAS WHILING AWAY ITS TIME WATCHING SHOWS ON OTT PLATFORM, BAKING BANANA BREAD AND DEVOURING NEW CUISINES DURING THE LOCKDOWN, PRIYANKA WAS HARD AT WORK WRITING HER MEMOIR, UNFINISHED.
The book, which also comes in the audiobook format, recorded in her own voice, gives us a glimpse of Priyanka’s formative years, her winning Miss India and Miss World beauty pageants... the challenges she faced while carving a niche for herself both in India and Hollywood. It’s aptly named Unfinished because when it comes to Priyanka Chopra, there are no full stops indeed. From juggling an acting career for 20 years, turning producer, starring in a Hollywood drama series, being appointed as UNICEF’s Goodwill Ambassador, marrying singer Nick Jonas to making a name for herself in Hollywood, Priyanka surely has come a long, long way. Yes, she has broken all kinds of ceilings and has shown us how it’s done without breaking sweat. More power to her! If her social media posts are anything to go by, she’s living the good life. Inspiring millions in turn to dream...She has launched a thousand brands, inspired a million dreams. Despite all the accolades, her head is firmly on her shoulders. She remains as amenable as ever... no airs and always ready with a smile to welcome you... The actress is in the news again. Her movie The White Tiger has just been released on OTT. She may not be driving the movie but she’s driving many conversations about the film... working in the OTT space and her memoir and of course the lockdown and her living in London for a while, shooting new assignments... We talk about anything and everything under the sun...read on...

HOW WOULD YOU LOOK BACK AT LAST YEAR?
With a lot of gratitude. I was blessed to have the comfort of a home, food to eat, surrounded by people who I love and the opportunity to continue to work. We were safe and healthy and that for me was most important. I count my blessings every day.
WHAT HAS THE PANDEMIC TAUGHT YOU?
Basically, being in this quarantine made me realise that some of the stresses we put on ourselves in our normal lives may or may not be important. It’s good to take a breather, take stock of your life, and tell your loved ones you love them. The one thing that kept me calm was constantly reminding myself how lucky and blessed I am.
WHAT DID YOU LEARN ABOUT YOURSELF DURING THE
BEING IN TH IS QUARANTINE MADE ME REALISE THAT SOME OF THE STRESSES WE PUT ON OURSELVES IN OUR NORMAL LIVES MAY OR MAY NOT BE IMPORTANT. IT’S GOOD TO TAKE A BREATHER, TAKE STOCK OF YOUR LIFE, AND TELL YOUR LOVED ONES YOU LOVE THEM
A lot… given that I wrote most of my memoir Unfinished in that time. But more than anything else, for someone who was always on the go, doing 100 things at one go, I learnt that I could completely slow it down and still be ok. I found things to do, learnt how to pace myself and I think I came out of that experience calmer and more at ease.
WHAT WOULD YOU SAY HAS
BEEN THE HIGHLIGHT OF THE LOCKDOWN FOR YOU?
Getting to spend so much quality time with my husband, which was the biggest highlight because, given our hectic individual schedules, we don’t get such extended time together. Also, writing the book, adopting our new puppy, Panda and just spending time with the family and the doggies.
UNFINISHED HAS HIT THE STANDS. WHAT MOTIVATED YOU TO WRITE IT?
The journey of Unfinished started about two years ago as I was nearing the milestone of being in the entertainment business for 20 years…. basically 20 in 2020. I am at a place in mylife where I can look back and introspect and I thought it was a good time as any to pen down this journey I’ve been on. I hope to give readers an insight into my journey in my own words… it’s sort of the ‘in-between interviews’ version of my life…

IRONICALLY, I NAMED THIS MEMOIR YEARS BEFORE I STARTED WRITING IT. I HAVE A LONG AND EVER-GROWING LIST OF THINGS I WANT TO DO, BOTH PERSONALLY AND PROFESSIONALLY. SO, I N THAT, I AM VERY MUCH
most recent lockdown (seems to be a common thread with my book) and so I did this alone, in a makeshift studio set up in my home. So, it was just me basically doing this alone with no one else around. It just added to the overall experience…. Which was surreal to say the least. It almost felt like I was narrating my story to a close friend… it was intimate and personal. It also made the whole prospect of the upcoming release so real.
TELL US SOMETHING ABOUT TEXT FOR YOU, THE MOVIE YOU WERE SHOOTING FOR IN LONDON.
Text For You is a romantic drama directed by Jim Strouse. The story revolves around a woman who, to ease the pain after tragically losing her fiancé, starts to send romantic texts to his old
the public version vs. my real story. It reveals a vulnerable side of me that only I can explain…. Sort of like a ‘curtain’s down’ look at my life in my words.
WHY DID YOU CALL IT UNFINISHED? WAS THERE ANY OTHER TITLE YOU’D THOUGHT OF? Ironically, I named this memoir years before I started writing it. I have a long and ever-growing list of things I want to do, both personally and professionally. So, in that, I am very much #Unfinished. But the funny thing about writing a memoir is that it forces

cell. It turns out, the phone number has been reassigned to a man across town suffering from similar heartbreak. The two meet and feel an undeniable connection but can’t seem to leave the past behind. I’m excited to have worked with Sam Heughan, Celine Dion, Russell Tovey, Sofia Barclay and an incredible collection of actors in this film.
YOU WERE FORCED TO STAY BACK IN LONDON AFTER YOUR SHOOT, HOW DID YOU SPEND THOSE DAYS?
Actually, I was always meant to be there…. it was not forced at all. I will be spending a year in London to complete two projects. I just finished shooting Text For You and will shortly begin filming Citadel, Amazon Studios’
you to look at things differently, reconciling so many things you thought you had put to bed. In doing so I’ve realised that being ’unfinished’ has deeper meaning for me and has in fact been one of the most common threads of my life.
YOU’RE ALSO SUPPOSED TO BE WORKING ON THE AUDIOBOOK OF UNFINISHED. WHAT’S IT LIKE TO DUB SOMETHING YOU’VE WRITTEN?
Yes, I have already completed the recording. I did this in London, during the
27/02/2021 12:40 PM
COVER STORY sequences and possibly the degree of dramatisation… you know how we love the drama.
YOU’VE BEEN DOING THE PROMOTIONS DIGITALLY DURING THE PANDEMIC. HOW’S THE EXPERIENCE BEEN LIKE?
It’s not completely new in some ways… because I’ve been working in different continents and time zones for many years, I have done a number of promotions digitally in the past. But this is completely different… not meeting / interacting with people or doing on-ground events is very surreal. I’m someone who loved doing promotions because it gave me the opportunity to interact with so many people, especially fans… I miss that a lot though I completely understand and support the need to stay home as much as possible and practice social distancing right now.
HOW DO YOU THINK THE BUSINESS OF MOVIES HAS BEEN AFFECTED BY THE PANDEMIC?
GETTING TO SPEND SO MUCH QUALITY TIME WITH MY HUSBAND, WHICH WAS THE BIGGEST HIGHLIGHT BECAUSE, GIVEN OUR HECTIC INDIVIDUAL SCHEDULES, WE DON’T GET SUCH EXTENDED TIME TOGETHER new global series from directors Anthony and Joe Russo (Russo brothers) alongside Richard Madden.
HOW DIFFERENT IS A HOLLYWOOD ROMANTIC FILM
FROM A BOLLYWOOD ONE?
Love is love and romcoms essentially drive the same emotions. There are not too many differences apart from language and maybe the song
There has obviously been a clear impact… from shoots being called off, to many releases moving from theatres to streaming platforms, the industry has had a tough year. We also have to remember that the lockdowns and restrictions caused the loss of livelihood for many people within the industry… technicians, support crew, actors, dancers etc. It’s been especially hard on them. And we can’t forget the plight of theatres as well, which were one of the last businesses to open. But there was a positive side… it made us all think more out of the box, explore new ideas and
platforms and find new ways for the creativity to shine.
TELL US SOMETHING ABOUT YOUR CHARACTER IN THE WHITE TIGER WHICH RECENTLY RELEASED ON OTT?
The White Tiger is not Pinky Madam’s (my character in the film) story. Yet she is intrinsically linked to how the story unfolds. Director Ramin Bahrani has developed and expanded the role of Pinky more than what we read of her in the book. She is born to a hardworking, middle-class family of immigrants in the US and has a tough life. Marrying the affluent Ashok (Rajkummar Rao) and moving to India (for a short time, she thinks) isn’t what she imagines it to be. Pinky is woke, but she’s woke as long as it’s convenient for her.
WHAT ATTRACTED YOU TO SIGN THE FILM? HOW WAS IT WORKING ON THE FILM?
When I first read the book, I thought it was hard-hitting and provocative and sarcastic and funny and dark at the same time and I remember it being such a page-turner. So when I heard that it was being adapted for a film, I chased after it. I met with Ramin in cities across the world and auditioned for it multiple times. I wanted to be an executive producer so I could put support behind it. It was an incredible experience shooting this film and working with such talents like Ramin, Raj (Rajkummar Rao) and Adarsh (Gourav) not to mention the other stellar cast members who brought the finer nuances out in every scene. Working with Ramin was an experience unlike any I’ve had before. His style is more supportive of actors… he builds

your self-confidence and gives you space… so much so that he never says action or cut… he just says “when you’re ready”… it’s incredible.
WHAT WAS THE TOUGHEST PART ABOUT PLAYING YOUR CHARACTER IN THE WHITE TIGER?
To fully give into being this American desi… one who was born and brought up there. My reality is so different from hers. Also, her lens of the world is myopic in a sense and very different from mine and so I had to switch off that side of me when playing Pinky.
DO YOU MISS WORKING IN BOLLYWOOD? DO YOU PLAN TO SIGN A BOLLYWOOD FILM ANYTIME SOON?
Yes, I do… very much. I’m currently discussing some great projects and hopefully, I will announce something soon.
WOULD YOU BE OPEN TO WORKING ON THE OTT PLATFORM?
I already am… I already have multiple projects underway for the same. OTT is the future of
entertainment and we have to catch up with the world in creating the right kind of content for these platforms. The White Tiger just released on Netflix, Citadel is being made for Amazon Prime and I have multiple projects being discussed for my Production House, Purple Pebble Pictures with various OTT platforms across the world.
ANY HINDI FILM OR WEB SERIES YOU WISH YOU HAD DONE. Delhi Crime… but honestly my friend Shefali Shah is just amazing in it.

ONE THING THAT YOU HOPE HAPPENS FOR YOU IN 2021.
That I am able to shoot again and finish and launch all the amazing things I’ve been working on. Basically, for us to move forward after so many months of standing still.

Sonam Kapoor’s penchant for dramatic silhouettes is well known to everyone who has followed her journey into fashion over the years. Making yet another bold and beautiful appearance, Sonam looked ravishing in Stephane Rolland haute couture she wore for promotions. She paired the marigold gown with a black tied belt clench around the waist and the ornamentation around the neck really elevated this simple yet stylish piece.

Customising the newest accessory one slogan at a time
Remember when you would wear a cool slogan t-shirt and convey a message every time you walked out? With masks fast becoming a mandate, we now have a bolder and more in-your-face way of doing it. What started as a necessity has now transformed itself into a fashion accessory. The first step towards customisation of face masks was matching it with your outfit and now we are putting slogans on them that are quite witty. So look into the eyes, read the mask and move along, mate.

WOMEN EMPOWERMENT What are the high points of your career and how do you manage the lows? The pivotal moment was when I went to fashion school and in the 2nd year was head-hunted by Tom Ford and the Gucci team. I worked in close proximity with Mr Ford for five years and learnt more on the job than I ever could learn at college – about brand management, people management et al. When I opened my company RR & Co. Bespoke Luxury Management, Tom Ford became my client and we opened the first store at Fashion Avenue, hosted him in Dubai, did the planning of his private dinner and handled all communications. That was a real high for me. Hard work, loyalty and good work ethics totally pay off. Also, I realised that I have a natural flair and passion for the luxury market.
“To be independent is to be empowered,” says Rosemin.
She heads RR & Co. Bespoke Luxury Management company in Dubai and is one of the most known faces in the Arab region being a TV/podcast host, model and real-time fashion influencer. The gorgeous Rosemin interned with Tom Ford as a sophomore and later introduced the brand to the Middle East. She rubs shoulders with the who’s who of the fashion world and has styled Princess Rania of Jordan among her many other accolades. Manju Ramanan speaks to the very charming fashionista and entrepreneur.
Did you always want to be part of the luxury industry? Yes. I was forever taking off clothes of my dolls and going to the fabric store for designing dresses for them. I grew up in a small town outside Toronto and my dad had a traditional book and magazine shop. I was always attracted to other fashion magazine, even wedding magazines for their attention to detail and style. You are inspiration to many. How do you deal with fame? It is very humbling and it is an honour that I am a role model for them. I am lucky enough to have a voice even if there are one or two people who are listening. If I can use my platform to do good – be it breast cancer awareness (my mum went through cancer), the charities I am involved with, my work with the Aga Khanis – it is nice and I am just grateful.
The proudest moment of your life? It was in 2020, the year I turned 40 years of age and I was invited to the House of Lords to speak on International Women’s Day. Thank God my brother from LA flew in and helped me write my speech. It was my moment – I spent 15 years in London and had passed by all these glorious monuments and then I was speaking in one of the most prestigious ones. It was a proud moment for me and my family. I am humbled. How do you unwind? It can be anything. If I get an hour to myself, I get my nails done and that time, I don’t use my phone. I love being in my track pants, watching Netflix – to disconnect. Did you ever consider acting and cinema? Never say never. Everything you go through in life prepares you for what you will eventually become. I started modelling in college, hosted live events, charity galas, store openings and red carpets at film festivals and today I have a talk show where I interview female entrepreneurs. I would be open to do anything for me or my brand. What has been the most challenging part of your life? Being married to the wrong person. It was my biggest mistake and my darkest moment but it passed and it did make me independent and strong. Name the women who you find impeccable in terms of fashion, style, personality and being socially responsible? Tory Burch, Aerin Lauder, Queen Rania of Jordan, Kate Middleton, Jennifer Lopez and Oprah!
What is empowerment according to you? Through my life experiences I feel it is the ability to be independent and not be dependent on a man or your parents. It is to feel proud that you pay your rent cheque, car and take care of your own expenses. To me that is independence, that is empowerment. Do you have days that you rather not post on social media? I am not super active and I don’t have my phone out everywhere. I am not a reality show and I am very respectful to the people I am with – I keep my private dinner moments low key and only post when I am talking about a product or an event. I think ten times before I post something and my photos are quite modest.

What was your first foray into the celebrity sphere? From a young age I recognized my core strengths to be forging relationships, building trust and being creative. Those assets along with my charismatic nature drew me to my first job generating revenue for a top urban radio station in Atlanta. Since this was pre-social media, celebrities had to leverage traditional platforms to sell their products. Whether it was musicians pushing out new albums or authors hustling their memoirs, celebrity brands needed us just as much as we needed them. It was there in that high pressure, cut throat environment I tapped into the natural symbiosis between brands and celebrities. As an industry veteran, how do you applaud celebrities as they grow? The clients I am most inspired by are the ones who constantly stay in motion and evolve in tandem with the times. I recently collaborated with Usain Bolt (aka the fastest man in the world) for the G20 Youth Summit and learned that, in his retirement, he’s looking at the future with an entirely new lens. Ten years from now, he plans to be the number one business man in Jamaica, helming companies and selling products on a global scale. In addition to being in awe of Usain’s versatility, I look forward to supporting his journey from athlete to entrepreneur. You have been hugely inspired by Will Smith. What has been your biggest learning from him? Through several partnerships with Will over the years, I have had the unique opportunity to pick his brain about his career and accomplishments. I asked him once: “What is the number one contributor to your success?” In response to my loaded question, he said without hesitation: “I don’t say no.” Will’s simple answer really resonated with me. There are endless opportunities available to all of us when we zoom out on our tunnel vision. From
launching a water startup to founding a $100 million VC fund, Will has flourished by being incredibly open-minded to ideas outside of his comfort zone. Stardust rubs off on you when you work with celebs. How has Will Smith’s magic impacted your life? Will Smith has always been very intentional. To a degree, he methodically planned each facet of his personal and professional life, while ignoring societal and other external expectations along the way. He did ample research, scrutinizing everything from his home-life to movie castings. As he analyzed the icons of our generation across various industries including sport, and took notes on how to emulate them, he noticed they all married at a very young age. So, he too sought out a meaningful life partner– you know how the story goes from here. When you reach positions of power, leaning on others can be seen as a weakness, but Will capitalized on his knack for fearlessly rising above taboos. I resent the cultural vernacular promoting the single “strong black woman” aka “Miss Independent” for that exact reason. We need emotional support and having that selfawareness should be celebrated. I am comfortable acknowledging that although I’ve been able to achieve success on my own, marriage (the right one), will be an important step to help provide the support needed to skyrocket me to the next level of my career the way it did for Will and nearly all icons of our generation. You manage boxing champion, Amir Khan. How would you describe him in a sentence? “Beauty and the Beast” accurately explains the juxtaposition of Amir’s two modes. In the ring, he is high-octane, extremely disciplined and laser-focused. In plain clothes, he is supremely humble, gentle, and playful. Who was your favorite Bollywood celebrity to work with? Hrithik Roshan was a phenomenal partner. He headlined an event to help us launch an exclusive watch collection for Rado as a part of Dubai Tourism’s DSF’s 20th anniversary. I think it’s so important to stay humble no matter how big you grow, and he embodied that principle tenfold. March 2021 FILMFARE MIDDLE EAST 27

200 Million and counting… She is the founder of 200 Million artisans that is an online community for the artisans of India and is in Dubai to extend the reach of her work. Manju Ramanan speaks to the journalist turned artisan expert Priya Krishnamoorthy
What is 200 Million Artisans about? 200 Million Artisans started out as a volunteer-run, COVID response platform to support India’s artisan communities. We began by featuring fundraisers of verified craft-based organizations in India. We also started to drive innovative collaborations to help India’s artisansproducers, enterprises and other players in the sector. Ten months on, we are evolving into a purpose-led, social enterprise with a goal to reimagine the potential of the handcrafted by catalysing inclusion and innovation within India’s handmade sector. As an online platform and community, 200 Million Artisans (200M) intends to support people from all walks of life, working with artisan communities, to build successful impact businesses to meet the future needs of sustainable production. We do this by bridging gaps in knowledge, resources and partnerships for small businesses and first-time entrepreneurs. Our key areas of focus include: - Innovation, Research and Insights; - Entrepreneurial Education and Resources; - Global - Local Networks and Partnerships How did the idea come about? 200 Million Artisans started out as an excel sheet. I was in Boston when the pandemic hit India and many of my friends working with artisan communities reached out for help. It started out with supporting their efforts to fundraise. Thereafter, my friends in a Saree Group in Boston started asking me to direct them to verified craft organizations looking for help. There is little information online. I thought I would start a simple blog to share information and resources. The next thing I know, people from all walks of life, from all over the world were reaching out to volunteer. Today, even 10 months down the line, those same volunteers are
responsible for building what you see of our work. The credit goes to the incredible support and work done by our global volunteer community. We get asked a lot, why the name 200 Million Artisans? In India, official figures say there are11 million artisans. But this was measured as late as 2012, 65 years after India’s independence. Unofficial figures claim there are over 200 million livelihoods linked to this sector. In the world’s largest and youngest democracy, a 200 million people data gap is a big number to ignore especially because policies, investments, any kind of support needs to be backed by numbers and data. So, we are using the number as a strategic call to action; 200 million artisans is India’s potential; our strategic advantage in the world of sustainable production. It also alludes to the urgent need for data and the lack thereof which is currently inhibiting the growth of the handmade sector, not only in India but across the world. Why Dubai? How do you plan to popularize the idea in the Arab world? Dubai is an exciting melting pot where so many worlds and cultures converge. Plus, as a city,I am excited by its commitment to sustainability - clean energy, promoting natural solutions,minimising carbon footprint. Plus, the MENA region has been leading the way in supporting and investing in the creative and cultural industries. It is not just the government but also its people who are committed to both creativity and sustainability - two of our primary focus areas at 200 Million Artisans. We would also love to explore collaborations between artisan communities / enterprises in India and designers in the Arab world to showcase the best of both worlds. And lastly, we would like to showcase the potential of Indian craft in the world of luxury. It would be great have a host from Dubai for #Sundayswith200M

I Dare. I Win! Cancer survivor and Southern film actor Mamta Mohandas has just wrapped up her Malayalam film shoot Meow in RAK and is now in Dubai shooting a Tamil film. This gritty girl from Bahrain has been through a slew of health issues that includes breast cancer relapses twice and has ploughed her way through her life and her work with grace and panache. Manju Ramanan speaks to her
You chose to live alone in Los Angeles during your treatment? Yes, that was my decision. I was dying and wanted to battle it on my own and I did. I am an only child and I told my parents I would go alone and live. It was 2014 and I had surrendered to my condition. I had a long list of things I wanted to do like travel the world with the love of my life and here I had no time. So, I moved to LA for treatment and decided to face everything head on! I discovered true love, self-love and so much love that I lived! Tell us about working in RAK during the pandemic? In the past, I have worked through the chemotherapy, so this was easy breezy. Also, the film’s topic is light and it is a family drama shot indoors. The RAK terrain is different. It is not a terrain I have not seen before but since I have an international driving license, right from day one of the shoot I rented a car and drove around. I love driving and started exploring the terrain when I wasn’t shooting. I have been to the wadis, the hotels and the vast spaces of RAK. I also did the zip line on the mountains. And, I gorged on hummus. I love Arabic food and there was this restaurant called Al Bait that I frequented often.
Are you careful about your diet? You can say I am mindful. Everything I do is directly related to my health. I am not a crazy fitness freak but since the last twenty years, if I missed my workouts, I would run for 20 minutes daily. I grew up in the Gulf like a fat kid bingeing on burgers and fast food but things changed. Deepika Padukone was your junior in school? Yes, she was. After Bahrain, I was sent to Bengaluru to study and we were in the same school. We also did a Goa trip together. Since I was educated abroad, those were the days I was getting to know India. Then cinema happened. Do you peel off emotions from your personal life to portray a character onscreen? Most actors do that and I did
that too. Actors tend to live a fragmented life because it gives them material to act out characters onscreen. My cancer relapses helped me to be a better artiste and I used that pain for screen. It is very easy. You don’t need glycerin because you carry that energy. But why my own health, I have dug into my own life and relived ungrieved moment from real life too. I had lost my boy-friend in college who had a crazy death. I was in films by then and hadn’t mourned him. Then there was this scene in a Malayalam film where the character I play loses her husband. I tapped into that personal space and then cried naturally. I realised that in my acting then, I was actually mourning my friend. But we learn to dissociate too. Every emotional scene need not necessarily need a personal experience to draw from. March 2021 FILMFARE MIDDLE EAST 29

s ’ y m So Mission
A fighter, a survivor and a woman of substance
who now empowers other victims to fight their battles - Somy Ali has come a long way from being a crazed teen in love with Bollywood star Salman Khan. In an exclusive chat with Aakanksha Naval-Shetye, the former actress talks about her journey from being a victim to a survivor and finding her true calling!
Somy Ali has no filters when it comes to talking. Speaking her mind and shooting it straight from the heart, she has no qualms in owning the mistakes she made as a youngster in love, has no bitterness either about the fairy tale romance ending like a nightmare! But from being a star-struck 16-year-old who left behind her home and came to Mumbai (1991) to meet her Bollywood crush Salman Khan to actually dating him. And then from enjoying a brief stint in films to giving it all up and returning back to the US (1999), Somy’s life has been nothing less than a script of a Bollywood movie, albeit an inspiring one. Currently the Miami-based former actress is running her own NGO No More Tears that she set up in 2007 to rescue and help victims of domestic violence or sexual abuse. Somy Ali radiates confidence and a fearless determination as we settle for a candid tete-a-tete where she talks about life lessons learnt and the dangers she faces daily in her line of work
You have come a long way from being this teen who left behind home and landed in Mumbai in search of love… Well, at 16 I was a child, young, gullible, I had a silly crush… now in hindsight it sounds completely insane. But you know when you’re a kid, you have a license to do silly things, so it was unbelievable to have a crush and actually go there and meet the person and be in a relationship with him. It was a fairy tale! Of course the fairy tale ended badly, but it was fun too. I got to travel, meet some amazing people who I got to work with… Saif (Ali Khan), Suniel (Shetty)… So that was a different chapter in my life and now I’m in a different chapter of my life. So no regrets. We are all humans, we all make mistakes, but you learn from your mistakes. I was a misfit in the industry. I had no filter, still don’t have it, so I got in trouble a lot for that. But you learn from your mistakes and now it’s a completely different lifestyle. What did you learn from your experience in Bollywood? What I learnt is that there are no purely good or purely bad people. When I was younger I had trouble understanding that, so I would always blame the other person. But I learned and evolved from that aspect to a place where I’m

now where I believe that we are all grey and no one is completely perfect including myself. Are you in touch with Salman Khan? No I haven’t spoken to him in at least about five years now, but I did see his mom (Salma Khan) who I respect tremendously and who is one of the nicest people I have ever met in my life. You were very close to her, right? Yes, she’s wonderful. She’s literally all heart and love. You know I lived in their home and they treated me like their daughter and family, and they gave me a lot of love. I saw Salma aunty a few years ago in Miami and she told me about all the wonderful things that Salman has been doing through his Being Human Foundation and I commend him and I wish him the best and I wish him well and wherever he is, I hope he is happy and doing well. What about returning to Bollywood? Has that ever crossed your mind? No, I would not give up what I do now for anything in the world. What about being a part of something like Bigg Boss hosted by Salman? Believe it or not and I’m not saying this to be arrogant, but I have never watched Bigg Boss and I do not know much about it. All I know is that it’s a reality show similar to the ones like Big Brother in the US. Do you watch any of your movies? No, but my mom does and she sends me photos of my songs in Aao Pyaar Karein or Anth or with Sanju (Sanjay Dutt) and I’ll be like okay… It’s funny to see videos of my films or songs. From Bollywood straight to a degree in psychology and then the NGO? What was the trigger? It stems from many elements, not just one reason that led to the birth of No More Tears. Having grown up to seeing domestic violence around home in Pakistan, and then also being a survivor of child sexual abuse, from five to nine by a house-help in Karachi. Then when I moved to America at the age of 14, a 17-year-old boy raped me, so I’m a rape survivor, and then obviously seeing this pattern of injustices not only against women, but also men and young boys too. When I was in Pakistan I would see my mom’s friends come over and see a black eye or bruises and the universal euphemism for being beat up is ‘oh she fell down the stairs’ which I heard in America, I heard in India, I heard it in Pakistan, I used it myself when I would go on a movie set. So seeing all
these injustices across brought about the birth of No More Tears in 2007. It was initiated with a mission to rescue and empower victims of human-trafficking, domestic violence and sexual abuse. We provide a barrage of services including training, counselling, legal support, medical assistance. And since our inception we have rescued over 30,000 victims, including men, women and children. Would you say that this has been your true calling? Yes, I do feel like I was put on this planet for this purpose. From being a victim you turned it into your strength helping so many victims The problem is that many of us don’t even know that we are victims. We are conditioned to accept domestic violence as some kind of a cultural norm and you don’t recognise it as abuse. Also our society has a tendency to blame the victim rather than blaming the perpetrator. And there’s such a shame and stigma attached to being a victim that they don’t take that first step of reaching out to us. Who was your support system through your own battles? My younger brother. He’s been with me throughout my journey. I had dropped out in the 9th grade to go marry an actor who I did not know from anywhere. So it was my brother who encouraged me to complete my education, secure my degree. And I also did filmmaking and script-writing and editing. Any plans of making a documentary highlighting your work? It’s interesting that you say that. I would not like to disclose much, but there’s a very big US network that I have signed a three-year contract with for a docu-series. They will be following me for nine months to see our line of work. What about a film on your life or a memoir? Yes, I’m actually working on my memoir for the past seven to eight years. This is my dream… I want to create a series of my journey, though not have me playing myself, but I want to find four actors playing me at various stages in life. I don’t know who that is going to be, but I would love Zeenat (Aman) to play my mom. I have a lot of respect for her. What’s happening on the personal front? Are you dating someone? Not at the moment. I was dating, not too long ago, and I had a break-up.
Healing takes time… Till today in my mid-life I’m still healing and I don’t know if one really ever heals completely from abuse. But if I’m able to help even one woman or man or child smile again or help them live a financially independent life by bringing back their confidence then that’s a life worth living.
Your line of work also involves dangers! Well, I’ve had threats, I’ve had abusers threaten me, I’ve been spat on in court by the abuser, been sent hate mails, had a gun held to my head… so yes there are risks involved. But I like to do all the field work myself. I think it has been the best therapy for my healing too. How do you deal with all the emotional trauma you are exposed to through the victims?

KNOWN FOR HER FIERY AND POWER-PACKED PERFORMANCES, RICHA CHADHA’S NAME HAS COME TO BE SYNONYMOUS WITH STRONG AND FEARLESS WOMEN CHARACTERS. THE ACTRESS HAS JUST HAD HER LATEST RELEASE MADAM CHIEF MINISTER AND IS NOW AWAITING HER FORTHCOMING FILM SHAKEELA, EVEN AS SHE IS SHOOTING FOR HER OTHER PROJECTS INCLUDING INSIDE EDGE 3, LAHORE CONFIDENTIAL AND SEVERAL MORE PLUM PROJECTS IN HER KITTY. AND IN A CANDID CHAT WITH AAKANKSHA NAVALSHETYE, THE ACTRESS TALKS ABOUT THESE PROJECTS, HER CHOICE OF CHALLENGING ROLES, HER MARRIAGE PLANS WITH BOYFRIEND - ACTOR ALI FAZAL AND ALSO REVEALS WHAT THE REAL RICHA CHADHA IS LIKE! You have come to be synonymous with some very strong roles and you seem to have a knack for picking out very challenging and even risky roles… And I am very thrilled about doing these kinds of roles and being a part of films that let me push the envelope as an actor each time I face the camera. I hope that five years or ten years from now people can look at my graph and see that about me. I really enjoy these characters. Also after you play a character and it clicks with the audience, you start getting similar roles. So, when instead of getting those repetitive ones, I get something more challenging, I jump at it. I always try to humanize my characters and make them relatable even if they are flawed. And, if they’re ballsy ones, then so be it! On one hand you are playing a politically-charged character like Tara in Madam Chief Minister and on the other hand, there’s Shakeela… Are you a switch-on / switch off kind of an actor or do you tend to stay in the character? I do a lot of prep beforehand. I work on the backstory, on the body language, but on the sets I can switch on and off. Sometimes I do get attached to a character, but I can step back too when required. Which of your characters have you been most attached to? Devi from Masaan, Tara from Madam Chief Minister and also Dolly from Oye Lucky! Lucky Oye! How do you take to your films being drawn into a controversy especially when it tends to take away the focus from your performances? Once you make the film it belongs to people. They can like it or hate it. So, I am perfectly okay with people criticizing a film… In fact I am open to

criticism, to learning and growing. But then there’re people who get angry about films even without having seen it like it happened with Madam Chief Minister. But yes, these things happen to everyone. The problem is when they expect actors to be more accountable than their elected leaders! I have always believed that people need better role models than us actors.
to go for glamour roles too, with lots of songs… why not? They do seem to up the popularity (laughs). But to be honest, I don’t really think of these things like who is doing what. I don’t keep a tab on that.
Do you think that your screen roles somehow intimidate people in real life? Yes, I have been told that, but I don’t know why does that happen (laughs)? I wonder what the off screen lives of Prem Chopra and Amrish Puri must’ve been like. So what is the real Richa like? What can I say about this… I’m a fun-loving person, very easy going in real life. Humour is my survival tool. I’m a bit of a loner, but socialize a bit too, even though I need my time off, that’s very important. Also spending time with my boyfriend, having a hobby to pursue… like travelling… these are very important parts of my life. I have a life besides my work and that’s why even trolling doesn’t bother me. What about your marriage plans with Ali Fazal? We were going to get married last year (2020), but the virus changed our plan. Now we will think and plan our marriage only when normalcy returns. Who’s on your wish-list of actors or filmmakers? Lots of actors really… But more than actors I would like to work with filmmakers like Zoya (Akhtar), Chaitanya (Tamhane), Ritesh (Batra)… Ajay Bahl is someone I’d like to work with again. And there are a lot of exciting new filmmakers I want to work with. Would you trade your performance-oriented roles for glamourcentric ones – the kinds that many of your contemporaries are usually seen doing? I’m very happy with my kind of roles, but I would love March 2021 FILMFARE MIDDLE EAST 49

Zara Noor Abbas Siddiqui is a name to reckon with on television and films alike! The stunning actress has wowed audience with her power-packed performances on screen and within a short span of time become one of the most-loved and popular names in the Pakistani entertainment industry. In a candid chat with Aakanksha Naval-Shetye, the gorgeous star talks about believing in her dreams, never giving up and her journey so far. Zara also talks about her husband Asad Siddiqui being her strongest support and shares a special message for Shah Rukh Khan. Excerpts: You’ve played myriad roles on screen, have any of them been an extension of the real you? ot really, they may be reflective of maybe like one per cent of who I am. And that is also because you have to somewhere put that one per cent of you into the act. Otherwise it’s just a lie and you have to be honest to your craft. But there’s still 99 per cent of Zara unexplored out there. But sure I would want to work on a narrative that’s a lot like me and less like everybody else.

You’ve been balancing multiple platforms very successfully… Yes, I just started my web-series with Haseeb Hassan and it’s an amazing experience. So I’m enjoying doing both TV and OTT at the moment. I was to do Haseeb Hassan’s film again with Fawad Khan and Sanam Saeed, but it is on hold at the moment. With films taking a step back because of the Covid pandemic, it is more important now to focus on OTT and TV. Also at the end of it, TV is still the biggest medium of Pakistan. Any plans of turning to production or direction? I have started producing little snippets of stuff with Asad (husband, actor-filmmaker Asad Siddiqui) under our banner The Rise Producers. I want to provide a platform for young artistes from Pakistan who probably don’t have the contacts in the industry and encourage Pakistani talent. So we are producing a few OTT shows at the moment. I’m also writing a couple of things, but I don’t how it’ll all be. Also my TV serial Phaans is out which is based on a social issue. So just trying to figure out all of that at the moment. You always wanted to be an actress? As a child I used to see my mum’s friend Shaista Khaala (actress Shaista Jabeen) come home often and she would always be so well-dressed. And I

would see my mum busy in and out of the kitchen. So, I would always ask my mum if she wanted to switch this life with her. And then I had my real aunt Bushra Khaala (actress Bushra Ansari) always looking gorgeous, busy with her shootings, and I thought this was an interesting job, where all that was required was to look pretty (laughs). So I think that’s when I decided I want to be out of the kitchen and on the TV. Did you face resistance from your family I wouldn’t call it resistance. I have three brothers and as I’m the only daughter, my father and brothers have always been very protective of me. They were just so overly in love with me, still are… they were like our sister is so beautiful and so many guys are like going to look at her… So they were skeptical and not open to the idea of me being in front of the camera. My dad told me he’d agree on the condition that I get married first. But you persisted… Acting was never the plan, but I wouldn’t call myself an accidental actress. Since I knew acting was not an option, I thought something around the narrative of the craft of acting would be nice. And I decided to pursue a degree in filmmaking. I also did theatre and would have the women of my house sneak out to watch my performances on the pretext of attending my sports day. I did try my hand at other things as well including teaching. I went to New York and explored many avenues there and a lot happened during the time. But this phase taught me many important lessons. You had a pretty roller-coaster ride emotionally during the time? Yes, when I was in the US, there was such an inner battle I was fighting that I was not able to keep the people around me happy and because of that inner
You are always so vibrant and full of positivity… The positive and vibrant Zara you see today was not always like this. Last year I was diagnosed with clinical depression and I was out and about with therapists. I had so many dark and horrible thoughts, but my family and Asad stood by me. So, all my strength and positivity comes from them. I’ve fallen a thousand times in my life, but because of them I’ve been able to get up again each and every time.
You can really be extraordinary in something only when you believe in
your dream and have a passion for it. If you do something just because the
society or your parents want you to,
then you’ll always be mediocre. Never
let your dreams be limited by anything! battle I feel I lost a bit of me in some relationships. There’s always a two-way traffic when it comes to failed marriage or a failed relationship. I went through it all, and I was not happy at that point in time. When did you make that call to turn to acting then? I was called for an audition and I returned home since I was selected by Hum TV who then launched me. And I did my first serial. But then my mum was diagnosed with cancer stage 2 and I’m very close to Amma, so I left everything to be with her. Somewhere I got into an emotion which was very dark during the time. So my father was like if we want her to live and continue a happy life then we have to support her dreams, even if we don’t support the idea of it. So my family was very supportive and I got back to acting soon. And then you met Asad Siddiqui? Yes, he came into my life and it was the best thing ever. He helped me climb a
lot of mountains, taught me to let go, to forgive, to move on and most of all he helped me heal. You share a fantastic chemistry with him off camera and on camera too… Well if you and a lot of people say that then, well hogi (laughs). I think the secret is to have friendship, trust and give each other that space where there is respect and a healthy growth as individuals. Tell us about your singing skills? Singing skills are accidental! I was very happy being a bathroom singer, but then the producer and director of our show asked me to do it professionally and I did it. I don’t know if I want to do it in the future though. Right now I’m just trying to explore everything around me, because I feel it is important to explore yourself in every variant of your life. I don’t know what my next stop will be. That’s the thing I love about my job too. The entire process has made me love myself more because I feel that I can
Are you a romantic at heart? Yes, very! I’m a huge Shah Rukh (Khan) fan so for me there’s a song for every occasion. You know… we all want things that he does, but that’s the spirit of it. I understand how I want love to be. Also I have got myself a yellow sari, and I love dancing around in that. And Asad just laughs. So instead of Asad doing something romantic I do the romantic bit for him and myself (laughs). So SRK is your celebrity crush? ABSOLUTELY! I have watched him all my life and Asad says that this man has done a lot of damage to a lot of people’s wives. He is the first man that I’ve ever gotten to know about when it came to love so for me the meaning of love is him, his work, his craft, his movies and everything he does with his eyes and you know that iconic step that… everything he does! He doesn’t know this, but he’s had a huge impact on my life. All my dreams and fantasies have been associated to all that he’s been doing. And my husband is under a lot of pressure because of that (laughs). But I feel that romanticism in me keeps me going on in life. You are an inspiration to so many women? I feel that being in a responsible space, if I can help someone find a voice to speak up against any injustice, any harassment – physical or emotional then why not! March 2021 FILMFARE MIDDLE EAST 35

How did Ajay Nagar become Carry Minati? The alias for me is just a cool sounding name that I spotted as a comment from a fan on one of my posts and I just liked it so, retained it. I was around 10 years old when I discovered YouTube and I was instantly and intuitively drawn towards pursuing it as a full-fledged career when I was 13. As a curious kid, I used to record myself doing all these crazy football tactics so that I could replay it a million times and learn from my slipups to ace the sport. I did miss regular college life and hanging out with friends on campus and parents were a massive pillar of support when I first started out but there was discipline inculcated.

What was it to get popularity at a young age? For me passion is the numero uno motivation and if my passion can get me the money and fame, then those are just additional perks. In fact, I have always been the quite reserved type and my career is very contradictory to who I am in reality. It felt amazing to go from being invisible to being widely recognized, something like the superhero fictional films. The biggest gift was and is to actually get the unparalleled support and respect from my fans in my good and bad times.
Have you rubbed people the wrong way with your roast sessions and how do you deal with it later?
Most of the time while roasting, I go with the flow without being cautious at all but yes, I do try to be careful as far as possible so that I do not hurt anyone’s feelings intentionally. At the end of it we all have to understand that roast is a roast and my intentions are never malicious. It’s pure entertainment and meant for a good laugh. You can’t always be politically correct and the day you start finding logic in entertainment you may just defeat the ideology of finding escapism within entertainment. Most of the times the people or characters I roast more or less are fine with it because they understand it is done in good taste but at times viewers start trolling the person roasted then it becomes troublesome. You see when the internet explodes no one can have control over that! Sometimes I do get positive feedback from the people I roast and there are a lot of requests on my direct messages and e-mails of people requesting me to roast them or their content as roasting is also a specialty and a genre of its own. I do not have any set formula for choosing someone for my roast and I do not target any particular individual, group, community, etc. I feel that’s unfair, biased and against my upbringing. I try to find content which is genuinely amusing and cringeworthy. Tell us about CarryisLive and how do you innovate content? We all come to that stage in life where we question our existence but I then recall the hundreds of emails/ messages/ comments of fans talking about how my videos helped them overcome difficult situations like
depression, anxiety and stress and this gives me the motivation to do what I do. Since I can’t be creating content on an everyday basis on social issues even though I’d love to, I do my bit in my personal capacity. In the past we have contributed to causes like Kerala Floods in 2018; Assam Floods, Bihar Floods, Shaheed’s of Pulwama Attack, Odisha Cyclone Fani in 2019, Australia Bush Fire and COVID’19 and Assam & Bihar in 2020 through my live charity streams where lot of fans came forward and showered their support. Are you compelled to create content on a daily basis or you post when you are inspired? Let’s say I’m inspired 365 days in a year. I enjoy the entire process and I have never found content creation tiresome or boring. Tell us about your acting debut in Mayday? Are film-makers discovering new talent from your space? It’s good to see online creators finally getting their due because we also make great on-screen actors as that’s our second persona. MayDay isn’t my full-fledged debut, it is a special appearance. My authentic acting innings will happen when I secure an opportunity to dedicate myself wholeheartedly to the art unflinchingly. I did MayDay when I heard I am supposed to be essaying my own character (CarryMinati). But I’m hoping I get to learn a thing or two about acting from Mr. Amitabh
Bachchan and Ajay Devgn. They are personalities I fondly admire and I have grown up watching. What about Vardaan and working with SalimSulaiman? Music helps me express myself better since I’m quite the introvert. Personally, 2020 was an eye opener for me as I realised that we are very disconnected and dysfunctional as a society and we need to show up for one another more frequently. I released a rap single Vardaan with my brother Wily Frenzy (music composer and producer) which is like an emotional immunity booster for the millennial generation who I think have suffered greatly because of the lockdown. It was an honour to work with Salim-Sulaiman sir on Date Kar le.
You are on top of your game. How do you see the next few years of digital content coming out from India?
With the advent of technology, the exposure to the online world has doubled and today content creators are as important as cricketers and Bollywood stars in the ecosphere. Short form and crisp content will primarily drive the growth in consumption of digital media. The next wave of evolution in India’s internet penetration is expected to come from tier II and tier III cities, enabled by wireless mobile internet and smartphone penetration. The preference of the Indian consumers towards regional language content is constantly on the upturn and the use of smaller screens on personal devices will fuel ‘personal escapism’. While television serves as the primary screen currently, we are entering an era where all screens will work seamlessly together and there will be a focused move from only mass products, to mass and niche communities to cater to community enablement. The proliferation of digital platforms has also given rise to the phenomena of ‘e-celebs’ who will be partnered extensively by content and brand players to build offerings for consumers on different digital platforms and then be ported across media and given shows online, on TV and other media. The increase in the earning population coupled with the increase in the number of smartphone and internet users will lead to a growth in spending on media and entertainment and I see gaming garnering 50% of the market share.

How did Baby Doll happen and then the euphoria, the fame and the song that is always requested to you. I was a basement singer for many years in my life. It is not hidden that I fought my way to become a singer so when Baby doll happened, I gave it all my might. I sang with a vengeance. It’s unreal to see how people still react to the song so I don’t mind singing it at all. It picks up the mood in a room. For me, it was my first moment of feeling victorious as a talent. I still remember the feeling. Do you enjoy playback singing or live concerts? Which is more challenging? If there is one thing I know I was meant to do in my life is, sing. It didn’t come to me easily, so honestly, I do not really have a favourite between the two. It’s a completely different experience for me. One would think LIVE singing is more difficult but when you have a few thousand people in a room, the energy carries you all the way. Even though a recording studio has more controlled environment, sometimes getting the right sound can take forever and be very hard. I like a bit of both. What I do love a lot and not get to do as often is the classical music. My training and foundation are all classical. I used to rehearse for hours each day since I was a child. I want to present that part of me now. Which are your favourite yesteryear singers? - Mukesh Saab - Kishore Kumar - Abida Parveen
Your favourite composer and lyricist? Composer - AR Rahman Lyricist - Javed Akhtar How do you manage your lows? I love to see my kids.Their faces turn all lows into highs. They make it all worth it. The fans make it all worth it. I do not have many lows. I am fortunate enough to realise how lucky I actually am, to do what I want and get loved for it. Great Indian khana and some shopping are fun things to do in my free time What about your collaboration with Arab artistes? So, you’ve heard! Yes, it’s big and it’s coming soon. Wait for it!

I was earlier going to be launched in Souten ki Beti by Saawan Kumar Tak and by Boney Kapoor in Jungle. While I was dropped from the first film, the second one was shelved. They almost wrote me off saying I was bad luck but I went on to do about 60 films. The highlights of your career and memories with your co-stars? My mother used to model for extra income and knew Gautam Rajadhyaksha, the well-known photographer.

Prem and Rikkuji suggested my name. I went to meet the family and I remember Arjun Kapoor as a chubby child. I was finalized but the film was shelved. Rikkuji however kept finding roles for me and I got Bhrashtachar that had Rekhajee, Mithun da and Ramesh Sippy. Mithunda was very helpful to me in my career. Also, Anil Kapoor took my photo album to the South and I bagged a big Telugu film. That was how the industry was in those days. I am ever so grateful to them. Jackie Shroff was nice, friendly and loveable and there has been mutual respect over the years. Chi Chi (Govinda) is one of the best actors and dancers in the industry, was so sweet to me. He never had a problem with several retakes and rehearsals during the dance numbers I did with him Your camaraderie with your contemporaries including Madhuri Dixit and Juhi Chawla? I did three films with Madhuri Dixit who I call MD and two with Juhi Chawla. MD was like a big sister. She has been extremely caring and guided me very well. We were in touch post our weddings too since both of us had left our families and settled abroad. Our struggles there kept us together and we discussed so many things. We haven’t been in touch after she moved to India. Our children were in the same school when I was there and her kids and her husband Ram are lovely people. You had an arranged marriage. Tell us about your banker husband? It has been 20 years but seems like yesterday. I married Aparesh on the 9th of July 2000. I married him when he was a student and my mother met him and found him perfect for me. He was a student and pursuing his Masters in the Netherlands and we married and I joined him. It was a whole new world for me. I had only watched Superman films and Sleeping with the Enemy – and not exposed to western cinema at all. My uncle suggested that I watch the BBC news to improve my English. But here I was in a Dutch speaking country trying to buy groceries by looking at the pictures on products. But people were very kind. My husband taught me three magical words – “Please, sorry and thank you.” Believe me I never used them earlier. But I realise how it peps up someone’s day when you are polite. How was life abroad?
already born in New Zealand and we had to move again. I had the luxury of a house help and started to drive though I lacked company in 2007 my dad was diagnosed with cancer and I rushed back to India. He passed away and then my mom the next year. My husband has stood by me through thick and thin.
We had a budget of 2000 guilders and spent 1000 guilders on rent and electricity. So, we had a spare of 1000 and learnt to be very careful. My husband had a dear friend and her husband was working in a big company in Rotterdam. She was like a teacher to me – she gave me a bag full of cleaning material and detergents etc – that way a lot of money got saved. I would give missed calls and she would call back so that I didn’t have to spend on phone calls. Every Saturday was a flea market and I could buy 5 kgs. of chicken at a low cost. I would clean and freeze it for the whole week. One year we survived on chicken curry and rice. Then the global recession hit and we moved to New Zealand but it was tough for him to get a job. I did a 9-month diploma in hair dressing and got a job as an intern in a salon. I was assistant to the main stylist an had to sweep the floor, sanitize the towels, keep work stations clean etc. But my husband and I could never meet because my work was on weekends and he worked weekdays. I quit the job and asked my husband to create a CV for me including my qualifications – I failed in my 10th grade and that was mentioned too. I floated the CV and got two calls. I dressed up, all suited and booted and went for the interview. It was like I was in the movies. I bagged both jobs in credit control. My husband was amused but I just enjoyed what I did. Then my husband got a position with Barclays in London and we moved there. My daughter was
Tell us about sibling love and your sister Namrata Shirodkar? Namrata is three years older to me and very different than I am. She was academically inclined and I was not. We have never fought and today we are closer than ever. She often tells me that I am the only blood relative she has since we lost both our parents. She voices her opinion loud and clear and for her right is right and wrong is wrong. I had a wonderful time with her when she was in Dubai when her husband Mahesh Babu was here for a shoot. We share a relationship that is very special, dear and close! When did you move to Dubai and what plans ahead? I moved here two years ago and I have found home! I love the place. I would love to be part of webseries since they have so many roles for all kinds of actors. But I never plan… let it happen the way it is meant to.

YEARS AND COUNTING Southern superstar Kichcha Sudeep of Makkhi and Dabbang 3 fame, who completed 25 years in Indian cinema and celebrated it in a grand extravaganza at Burj Khalifa (which projected his lifetime achievement on its luxurious facade), speaks to Manju Ramanan in a candid interview. Sudeep also released a teaser of his upcoming film Vikrant Rona that was projected on the world’s tallest building. Excerpts from the interview. You shot and released the trailer of Vikrant Rona in Covid times? We are in blissful times right now and we are talking to each other. This is a good time compared to a few months ago. Somebody had to start work. We had erected huge sets to tell a story in a huge way. There were four floors of jungle sets and real plants were brought in. We hadn’t yet heard the word “bubble” and we went to Hyderabad and hired the right people. We set the protocol on how the unit should function under the pandemic, how people should work, eat, keep themselves and their surroundings safe, in fact we had a team to monitor them. When a set of people walked in, they were sanitized and then when they left, the unit was sanitized. People took great effort and the result was good. Not one case came out of our sets. I believe that if you do something with the right intentions, everyone is on the same page and you will all be in a good space.
Is it a fantasy film? This is a very small and beautiful story I heard. We sat through it and I had a chat with my manager and producer saying that it should be narrated in a huge way. It will be a visual treat like a Jumanji and my character is like that of an Indiana Jones. This is the best I can explain at this moment. We did think of shooting in the real jungles but we realised it might not be safe. Also, we had to shoot during the day and then in post-production convert it into night – we didn’t want to do that as well. So, we shot indoors on set. We made it large scale. The ferry used in the film is very high which originally was planned to be a yacht or a motorboat. So, we innovated and worked hard. We released the first look and it went viral because there was nothing happening around that time. The film will release in 50 countries and in several languages. Covid 19 actually

supported us. You are an engineer, a cricketer, film-maker, actor and more – how did you employ all those skills in your films? The best part of education is that, all of it comes together and you can’t segregate it. You are programmed that way. I love cricket and enjoy playing it between shots. I enjoy cooking too. You started your career in Hindi with Ram Gopal Verma. Was it comforting to work with him? Yes, it was! I had a language problem with Hindi and though he has one too, he has no fears or inhibitions. He is one person who hasn’t laid any boundaries or inhibitions to himself, his ideas and thoughts. You can never arrive to a conclusion about him, that way no one knows him. He can shock you with a thought and when you react, his story starts. Don’t take him too seriously too. He is very good with his vocabulary, is a man who dares and has no fears or inhibitions. Every now and then he is popping up with ideas and is in news. That is his own personality and not just something he projects in public. He has defined many things in cinema today. We have many genres but he is a genre himself. Be it camera angles, lighting or subject, he is unique. People say they go to watch an RGV film. It could be horror, thriller, action or a mafia film. During Phoonk I was worried about my Hindi and when you act in a Hindi film and you are from the South, it has all the capacities to make you feel small. Be it the atmosphere, colour, body structure,
accent or that you are not their friend. Till that time, you need someone because you are an invader. For me, that someone was RGV. After Phoonk, it was Rann thanks to Ritesh Deshmukh. And the most daunting thing about that film was, I had maximum scenes with Mr Amitabh Bachchan and I had to speak many dialogues in a language he is a master of. At the end of my dialogue, Mr Bachchan’s dialogue was “Are you serious?” (Laughs). But that is the film that Rajamouli sir saw and gave me Makkhi. Tell us about shooting Makkhi, you had to emote to a nearly invisible fly? It was a unique project. That is why it is a pan India film. Baahubali and Makkhi are only two pan India films and laid the foundation for many to follow. Today, content has to be unique to be accepted in a particular industry. Say what you are saying but make it unique. Spend on it, make it lavish but do something new. How did you meet Salman Khan and how did Dabbang 3 happen? I am friends with Sohail Khan and have always admired Salman Khan and we have mutual respect and love towards each other. My daughter is a huge fan and once during a shoot, I requested him for a photo with her. When I called out to her but, she was missing. Salman waited till she came and took a picture with her. When Dabbang 3 happened, he said Kicha karega and called me. If this film wasn’t with Salman Khan, I wouldn’t have done it. It was a role unlike anything I had done before. Also, in the fight sequence with him where I had to kick him, I couldn’t do it out of reverence to him. Prabhu Deva sir kept telling me, but something didn’t work. Finally, it was shot using another angle. (laughs). Salman is a generous man who gives us abundance of love and respect. He once flew down and visited us at home. He presented me a car and looked after my family in Mumbai when I wasn’t there. He called them home for a meal and pampered them. That is why he has people with him always. There is a like-mindedness we share and he is one of a kind. You completed 25 years in Indian cinema? It isn’t the number of years I have spent in the film industry. It is the fact that I am still relevant and people love and respect me. When a film releases and does well, my fans make me feel like superman. How was it working with Prabhu Deva? Is very simple. He doesn’t complicate things for you and no one knows when the film begins and ends. It is that smooth. I am happy that he didn’t choreograph me. I would have given dance a new meaning. (Laughs). His brother Raju Sundaram is a good friend
and we have worked together quite often. He knows my reluctance to dance and always gives me steps that I can do, especially when the actress next to me is a good dancer. (Laughs). Prabhu sir is like a child. He is full of questions and very down to earth and simple. How did you pull yourself out of your tough times? I love that phase and believe itis what made me today. Today I know where I am. That time I didn’t. If we say 2020 was such a horrible year, you can easily say that I had Covid years in my life. I wasn’t a choice for anyone – everyone rejected me. I wanted every hero to reject every film so that whatever was left could come to me. Between 2006- to 2010 my earning was Rs 500 in all the films I did. I was paid Rs 25000 for a TV series. I never took money from my dad. My wife was earning though. But things change. (Smiles)
RAPID F IRE The name Kichcha .. Is a character from my first hit film Kichcha and the name stuck. People recognize the character and learnt my real name much later. I met my wife Priya.. In college. She was my girl-friend’s friend. She wasn’t the love of my life then. Today she is. A song I first sang to my wife... Wasn’t in Malayalam. I sang Jab Koi Baat Bigad Jaaye. Your toughest action scene: Is at home with my wife. There is one clear winner, my daughter Saanvi. (Laughs). On set, it was Vikrant Rona where we shot a full scene without any cuts. It took months of research and it doesn’t have stylishness but it is a very natural looking fight sequence. A Hindi film you have loved. Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikander. I watched it 15-20 times. I also love Lion King and Khalnayak has been an all-time favourite. I watched four shows of Khalnayak back to back. March 2021 FILMFARE MIDDLE EAST 47

Says songstress Alka Yagnik who started her career in 1980 and hit the popularity charts with her second song Mere Angane
Mai from Laawaris. But it was Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak of 1989 that put her in the big league of playback singing followed by Tezaab, Tridev and more... In a career spanning 40 years, the lady with the honeylaced voice and a popular face in Dubai’s LIVE concerts, speaks to Manju Ramanan on her next concert scheduled with Kumar Sanu on 9th of July (postponed from Feb 2021) Tell us about the OTT space and playback singing today?
The OTT platforms are the need of the day and unfortunately, we don’t have live concerts owing to the pandemic. But we do have virtual concerts and it is surely not the same. At least, it is a way of entertaining audiences. And they are trending right now. I prefer LIVE concerts and am eagerly waiting to get back to them. As for playback singing, it has taken a back-seat today. We have singing stars who have a direct connect with audiences. Playback singing is not their criterion. They are independent artistes in their own right and they sing their own songs and put them out on YouTube. They are not dependent on Bollywood songs or playback singing to carve their own identity. At my time, playback singing was an esteemed place to be in. Today it is not so. Everybody wanted to become a playback singer then. It was an honour to be called so. In the commercial world too, a playback singer was someone who is held in high esteem. Today, the scene has changed.
Who are the yesteryear actors you would have like to sing for?
I have sung for most of the superstar actresses be it a Madhuri Dixit or a Juhi Chawla or a Kareena Kapoor Khan. I have had a long tenure and have sang for junior and senior actresses. Yes, I haven’t sung for actresses such as Waheeda Rehman and Meena Kumari. Lataji sung for them and I believe that no one else could sing those songs better than she did. But I have been happy singing for Rani Mukerjee and Aishwarya as well.
What was unique about music directors you worked with?
Every composer has his or her own distinct style. There are certain nuances every music director uses and it has been challenging to get those nuances right and saying yes, this song has been done justice to. Everybody has a different style of guiding the singer and I have been making most of my music directors happy with my work. That is a satisfying experience.
In today’s YouTube generation, how do you see the growth of melody?
The world is a small place and music can reach everywhere instantly. In fact, today it is easier for singers to get exposure. Social networking plays a huge role in promoting music. But while it is great for marketing, it doesn’t really sustain good music. We have advanced technically into the music scenario and marketing has gone up, but I feel the soul of music has become less. Music isn’t as soulful as it used to be and I feel we need to get back to soulful melodies since that is our music.
How have you managed your lows?
Lows and highs are a part of life. You just have to go with the flow. One day is good, one day is not so god. The best way to overcome a low patch is to do some more music.
Any memories of your first show in Dubai?
I don’t remember my first show in Dubai. It was more than 25 years ago. I have lost count of the number of times I have come to Dubai. It is one of the most frequented places for my shows. What an enthusiastic and energetic audience you all are!

SONIYA MEHRA, THE LATE VINOD MEHRA’S DAUGHTER WHO IS A YOGA EXPERT TALKS ABOUT HER BOLLYWOOD STINT, HER TRYST WITH YOGA AND HER LIFE IN DUBAI TO MANJU RAMANAN What brings you to Dubai and the Arab world? Dubai is a really good place for opportunities and growth. I got offered a job to teach yoga here in 2016 at a studio. Now I freelance at different studios and have a lot of private clients. Also, Dubai is centrally located between Mumbai, London and Kenya, the three places I travel to frequently. Tell us about your tryst with yoga? I started yoga when I was around 15 -16 years of age when I started suffering from a lower back pain. It started when I was only 13 years old and got worse over the next couple of years. I have actually been teaching in Mumbai as well (part time to doing my auditions and other work) since around end of 2011- early 2012 and was teaching many different clients from the film fraternity there, who were extremely supportive of my new venture. Was taking up acting a natural course of action for you? Yes I wanted to be an actor eve since I can remember I even studied at LAMDA(London Academy of music dramatic arts) along with my school in Mombasa (Kenya) since I was around eight years old. I used to always take part in all the school plays and I was one of those little kids that would just go up on stages at parties and take over the microphone from the live band. I would always either sing, perform a choreographed dance or recite one of my monologues. I look back now remembering all the grown-ups being so entertained and I always brought a smile to people’s faces. I then went on to Arts Educational Schools of London in London for my 6th form (High School/A levels). I didn’t actually finish high school or go to university as I had an opportunity to join Anupam Kher’s “Actor Prepares” in Mumbai. I’m trained in various forms of dance since the age of 4 fromBallet, Jazz, Ballroom Dancing (Tango, Salsa, Cha cha, Jive, Foxtrot, blues), Kathak, Bollywood dance, Hip Hop, contemporary dance, belly dancing and I
have recently been teaching myself Afrodance. I’m also a trained singer. You grew up in Kenya with your mother and brother. How did you take to Bollywood cinema there? So, to be very honest Bollywood didn’t come into my life until I was in my teens. When we were really little I used to watch more Disney/fantasy movies. But then I really got into it as a teenager and had a fond desire to then join Bollywood. We only had one cinema in Mombasa (it is literally a really small coastal town), but they would show Bollywood movies over there and I would go watch them. What are your father’s movies you like the most and why? Ghar is such a beautiful story and love both the characters so much Do Phool is hilarious and has wonderful performances by both Mehmoodji and my dad. Burning Train for its gripping story and absolutely stellar star cast. Will you act with your brother in a movie together? Oh wow! Nobody has really asked me this question before, and to be honest that would honestly be such a dream come true to share the screen with him. He is really such a powerful, phenomenal and hard-working

artist. It truly would be such a pleasure to do so. What is the OTT series you binge on? Oh there’s just too many on the list. I’m a Netflix, Hulu & Amazon Prime addict! Even Apple + has some really fantastic content too. Let’s just say I’m one of those who can sit and binge a good show over 2 nights. How did yoga help you deal with your stress? One main thing I have learnt through my practice is the power of the breath. You can be in the most stressful situation and just by taking, even the basic, 3 deep inhales from your nose and 3 long exhales from your mouth, you can be charge of yourself. The breath is a wonderful tool that has the power to destress, help you release unwanted emotions and can energise you. Just by taking deep breaths you can actually send signals to your nervous system that then further, sends signals to your body/ mind to relax- be in their “Sattvic (Zen)” state. You call yourself a spiritual explorer? Tell us more. So ever since I was little I felt a very strong connection to the spiritual realm. I always
receive signs from my dad- literally since I was a small child (he passed away when I was just a year and 10 months). I always also have very intense, colourful dreams with strong messages, also since I was a small child. I started yoga in my teens and I started getting interested in healing practices towards the end of my teens. In 2010 I dove into my first healing arts – Reiki. I have completed my Reiki Masters. I also practice and am certified in Crystal Healing Therapy (I absolutely love crystals and the magical healing powers they hold within them). I have also completed Sound Healing with Tibetan Bowls and last but not least I absolutely adore reading Oracle Cards. I also have sessions where I offer a mixture of the above along with some form of spiritual guidance (how someone can start their journey and learn tools to help them with life) and life coaching. What are your plans with film production? So my dad actually opened VM productions and produced and directed the film Gurudev. Unfortunately, he passed away after only completing 50 per cent of the film. I have never really thought about whether producing films would be for me, but I guess life is filled with surprises and I don’t like to not take up good opportunities if they come knocking at my door.

Sheheryar Munawar is undoubtedly one of Pakistan’s most-loved stars on the big screen as well as the television. The filmmaker-actor set the cash registers ringing at the box office with his superhit film Parey Hut Love and reigns TV with his equally mega-hit shows. But while celebrated for his screen-presence and strong performances, he’s also earned the lover-boy tag thanks to the sizzling chemistry he shares with his co-stars. In an exclusive candid chat with Aakanksha Naval-Shetye, the charming actor talks all about this chemistry, the rumours of his link-ups, his upcoming projects and reveals his ideas of romance. The star also tells us about the strong women who’ve shaped his personality
You scaled the popularity charts within a very short span of time? I really don’t know. I just believe in keeping my head down and working hard. I was lucky enough to start my career behind the camera with one of very senior Pakistani directors, and he used to believe that you should just focus on the work and not get excited by the frills and thrills and keep working hard. He always said that if you’re going to enjoy your work, then you’ll be successful and frankly that’s what I’ve been trying to do. I’ve been trying to enjoy my work! You’ve been the face of some of the most successful shows on TV as well as hit films, what about the OTT? Any plans for that? I’m going to be engaged with a few projects this year, but I can’t say much about that right now. So let’s see, I’m reading a few things and I may be associated with one or two this year. Did you always want to be an actor? One of the reasons I wanted to work behind the camera was because as a child I could never make up my mind about what I wanted to be when I grow up. Every day I would wake up in the morning wanting to be something new - doctor or engineer or pilot. And that didn’t change even later. There was this senior actor Rahat Kazmi Saab and in one of his talks I heard him say that the first thing he does in the morning is that he tries to think who he is that day. And that’s the thing with all actors. So, that is what clicked with me. I decided that the best thing would be to be someone new every day and I realized this is what I want to do. Tell us about your journey in the industry. Did you have films on mind or television? See, in Pakistan, the line that divides TV and films is very thin. TV for Pakistan is still the biggest medium, so even though as an actor you always want to be seen on the bigger screen, the thing is that in Pakistan TV is the stronger and senior medium. And it also has some of the best talents working in the country. So I started off with TV. But very soon I realised that I wasn’t getting to grow the same way that I would want to, so I started working behind the camera. I worked as an Assistant Director and after two years I started directing. I did TV commercials and a TV show as well. Then I produced my first film in which I got to act as well. Then last year (2020) with Covid the situation changed. So I thought this was the best time for me to get back to TV and have a little fun with it. So I made an outing this year and it’s going well. People have been kind enough to give

On rumours about link-ups! I’m an actor and most of the roles I get are the classic lover-boy, so it’s my job to be believable. So if people think that I have great chemistry with a certain actress, then I take it as a compliment that I’m doing my job well (laughs). So that’s what it is. It’s a persona that I have as a public figure and I take it with a smile. Most of the time I use the good old words: ‘We’re just good friends’ (laughs) and more often than not that is the case, we are just friends.
me a lot of love so I’m grateful. The content on TV is largely womencentric… Yes, a lot of TV in Pakistan is women-centric which can get frustrating for a male actor sometimes. But the good thing is that several channel heads every now and then take that risk of writing a script that will have a male-centric storyline as well, and that is the case with the show I have done - Pehli Si Mohabbat. As an actor what is more satisfying television or films? TV and films are two very different mediums, their technicality, their pace is very different. For me it was exciting to be able to come back from films after a few years and work on TV and find that middle ground between the two. So that excited me and I have really enjoyed these past few months shooting for the drama. Another cool thing about being on TV is that you get to do so much more work. Like you have 60 to 70 scenes in a film, but in television you end up doing 300 scenes. So it’s a lot of work every day. So that’s very satisfying for the actor in me, and I would love to keep experimenting with different mediums. I have been lucky enough this year to be experimenting with the OTT platform as well. You have to keep evolving or you won’t be relevant. What helps you stay grounded? In my personal life I’ve a very small group of friends and even when I’m socializing I do it just with that crowd. I’m very close to my family too. So, they keep me
real and keep me grounded. They keep me normal like help me take my job as any other profession. How do you deal with all the female-fan attention? Firstly I’m grateful. And secondly, the past few years I have been able to sort of separate myself as an individual and this job that I do. So if I get female attention, I take it like customer feedback. In the same way, taking selfies and interacting with my fans is like customer support. So I try to take it objectively as opposed to getting carried away or getting emotionally involved. Which actress do you think you have the best chemistry with? I wouldn’t know. The good thing is that whoever I have worked with so far, I have really enjoyed working with them. And as an actor it is very interesting that I’ve had good chemistry with almost all of them. But we have heard more about you and Maya Ali than anyone else? That’s because we have done two back-to-back projects. Parey Hut Love and now its Pehli Si Mohabbat. But I’m going to be working with some more beautiful ladies in the projects coming up, so I request that our fans are just as accepting of that chemistry as well. So are you single? Yes very much. Lover-boy on screen, how are you off it? Are you a romantic? I’m an absolute romantic in that regard. But I will romance everything that I do! It’s not just about being romantic with the opposite sex, the women. When you’re a romantic
you will even romanticize driving a car or the way you dress. That’s what being a romantic means… Being flamboyant with your emotions while doing anything. And I’m generally a romantic because whatever it is I do, I do it with a lot of feeling. How important have the women in your life been when it comes to shaping or influencing the person that you are? I come from a family of very strong women – my mom, my sisters, my aunts - they’re all women who have done wonderfully well in their chosen professions. Be it doctors, corporates, entrepreneurs, philanthropists, so I have been surrounded by these very empowered women. And it’s been wonderful because women like these bring up their kids to respect other women in turn. And to respect them as individuals and be accepting of their strength. I really respect my parents for this kind of upbringing where I wouldn’t know any other way to treat women but with respect, because I was brought up around these strong women. It was much later I realized and discovered there are so many issues that women face. It was scary because I had not known a world like that. For me it is normal to be in a world where the women are empowered. I know I can’t do much, but whenever I do get a chance to be vocal about it I do speak up. I want to try to ensure that there is an environment where the person’s gender is of no consequence. You have faced personal setbacks and seen the highs and lows… What has kept you going through it all? Faith. I’ve always been very spiritual and that’s what kept me going. I have faith in reaffirmations that good things will happen to good people. The good deeds that you do is the actual currency you earn, not money. I’m also a strong believer in karma. Tell us one thing about yourself that not many know… I’m a complete nerd. So, I have very nerdy hobbies, like I’m into model-making, so I make plane models, remote controlled planes and I love to fly them. I make those Lego sets, so my hobbies are very geeky.

benefits, and shares some quick recipes to soothe your taste buds while eating healthy. So what is this Ketogenic or Keto diet! The Ketogenic diet is a low-carbohydrate, high-fat diet that leads to the breakdown of fats present in the liver which is then used as energy.
Key benefits of Ketogenic Diet for women Anti-Aging
A detailed study conducted recently found that ketones generate more metabolic energy thus reducing free radicals than glucose and carbs. This acts as a great anti-aging process.
Stabilizes blood sugar
Stops carbs and sugar cravings
An imbalance in the blood sugar level can cause mood swings and irritability. A Keto diet can help stabilize the insulin and blood sugar levels thus helping your brain to have a stable source of energy helping you have a better mood.
Here’s what happens: when you consume sugar, the blood sugar level increases releasing dopamine in the brain. The body produces insulin to maintain the blood sugar level. This tells your brain that you’re hungry and need to eat. Keto turns your body into a fat-burning machine instead of a sugar burning machine.
Whether you’re a mom or a wife, whatever you do, your body needs the energy to keep going. Ketones help the body produce way more energy than carbs or glucose.
When you’re on Keto, you burn the accumulated fat to produce energy. This results in quick and effective weight loss. Bye-bye body fats!
Amazing weight loss results
Aiding in cancer-treatment in women
The Keto diet has proven to be effective when practiced as a complementary treatment for treating some types of cancer with other traditional medicines.
MYTH BUSTER MYTH You can consume unlimited fats
A detailed study conducted recently found that ketones generate more metabolic energy thus reducing free radicals than glucose and carbs. This acts as a great anti-aging process.
It’s important to fast when on a Ketogenic diet
Fasting is not a necessity. It is not recommended to incorporate fasting yourself into the Keto diet till you’re comfortable with the process, such as going alkaline first or reducing your carb intake. Nevertheless, intermittent fasting while you’re on Keto surely has a lot of benefits. For example, it can boost weight loss, detoxify the body, and aid in controlling cravings and hunger. This acts as a great anti-aging process.

Cook the chicken/boiled potatoes in a skillet until cooked. You may add your choice of seasonings. Fill each pepper with the mixture of chicken/ boiled potatoes and cover it generously with the cheese mix. Place it on the baking sheet and bake it for approximately 10 minutes.

Know when Keto may not be the ideal diet for you
Not working out when on Keto
You surely have to modify your workout schedule but you don’t need to stop exercising completely. Following a Keto diet leads to a lot of changes in the body. It’s more likely that you may feel uncomfortable working. On the other hand, there are several benefits of exercising while on ketosis which include lesser fatigue, blood glucose maintenance, and 2-3 times faster fat burn.
Now that you know about the ketogenic diet, it is always better to try it under reliable guidance. Make sure you consult a nutritionist or a health specialist before getting on the diet for better results.

I have also acquired rights of the superb Tamil hit film - 96 and the Telugu film Kirik party! The starcast is on verge of finalising and we will announce soon. The big story is that I have acquired the remaking rights of the iconic film Arth which was directed and written by Mahesh Bhatt and starred Kulbushan Kharbanda, Shabana Azmi and Smita Patil. The new Arth will be directed by Revathi and will star Bobby Deol. The film will be shot this year and right now the two main actresses and other star cast are on the verge of getting finalised. I have also acquired the rights of Tanu Weds Manu Part 3 and the shooting commences next year. Besides, I am
also curating the legend Meena Kumari’s film based on the book The Legendary Actress Meena Kumari - A Classic Biography written by Vinod Mehta. Work on the film is scheduled to start in 2022. I have signed Aniruddha Roy Choudhary (of Pink fame) to direct the film. As for the OTT platforms, in this pandemic, I have curated some exciting web series on love - some are based on true events, some are fictitious. What makes you back a project? Content!! Content is the king in today’s market and the heart and soul of any film is its content. The audience is very smart and thanks to the open forums, well lit about issues. So, to present them something exciting and different, really excites and inspires me as a producer.

immediately. I have produced films such as Parmanu with John Abraham , Pari with Anushka Sharma ,Baazar with Saif Ali Khan,Rohan Mehra, RAW (Romeo Akbar Walter) with John Abraham ,Jackie Shroff and Mouni Roy ;Pataakha - directed by Vishal Bharadwaj and many more. Movies and music-making has always been my passion. Do you see actors slash their fees post pandemic? Like masks that we mandatorily wear today, I think paycuts are also the new normal. Mostly all actors are ready to restructure and help producers /studios for their talent fees depending on the project recovery. It is great relief to the industry. Do you see more actors migrate to OTT platforms OTT platform have become a great boon for actors. It is a much broader platform for them in terms of greater freedom of content and actors experimenting with different roles for creative satisfaction. But, as an audience the thrill and fun of theatrical experience is still awaited and once things are normalised, people will be back to theatres and OTT will still prevail. So both, have their own space. Post pandemic, how do you see the film industry fare? It will take some time to recover,but we are on our way to glory. Like every industry even films have faced tremendous losses, but together we will rise to success 5 things you have learnt during the pandemic? Everyday has been a new learning
throughout the pandemic. The only thing worthwhile has been humanity and kindness. One of the most important thing it taught us, was to find deeper meaning in our work while staying connected to our families. We also learnt that mental health and physical health is of great priority and it is very important to focus on positivity. March 2021 FILMFARE MIDDLE EAST 57
