Amiben Modi: You don’t have to do much to make a difference

Spritual healer Amiben Modi says that the lockdown has taught everyone a lot. She adds that she has understood that it doesn’t take much to help others. “Having a lot of time and doing little with it has always made me anxious. After a week of doing nothing, except spending time with my family, I got used to the routine and started enjoying myself. However, a little while after, we were all eager to do something for the society, which is when we started distributing food packets. My biggest learning is you don’t have to do much to make a difference. Sometimes you can contribute by giving your time and a little bit of effort. I’m extremely grateful to the people who joined me and understood the strength of teamwork,” she says.

She adds, “My foundation is called Shreesava foundation. My husband’s academy is an ace tennis association. We are in collaboration with them and are packing food for the needy and supplying to the Ahmedabad municipal corporation. We are also distributing these food packets ourselves. We use masks, caps, gloves, and aprons, ensuring complete safety and hygiene. We prepare about 4500 packets every day.”

Ask her how she keeps herself busy during this time, and she says, “During the lockdown, I went through an evolution. The first question I constantly asked myself is how do you live with the same people for a continuous period of time and still appreciate them, without taking them for granted. My family and I hardly had time together. This lockdown, initially felt like a blessing, but then we started getting tired of each other. That was scary, but essential to get through as well. It made me realise that it is imperative to remember why we love each other in the first place. That has been my biggest learning, to not take each other for granted and remember the good things and appreciate it. Work, of course, though is vital, I realized that it was not the single most important thing. I realized it is okay if I can’t work for now, even for a little time after. What is important is that we are here and safe.”

In fact, she has a few suggestions for those who are finding it challenging to be at home. “For people who are feeling restless, my only advice is to accept the situation and change their attitude. Feeling restless or complaining will not make the lockdown last for a shorter period. Acceptance is the key,” she says.

However, Amiben cannot wait for the world to be back to normal. “I’ll be grateful for the situation becoming normal, I think I’ll just be happy to work, but also remember and cherish these times,” she says.

Mohsin Khan, Shivangi Joshi resume YRKKH shoot, thank Rajan Shahi

A nationwide lockdown was imposed in the month of March because of the Coronavirus outbreak. As a result, the shooting of TV shows was stopped. But now that the process of unlockdown has begun, the TV shows are going on-floors again with various safety and precautionary measures.

Recently, Mohsin Khan and Shivangi Joshi aka Kartik and Naira from Star Plus’ “Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai” (YRKKH) resumed shooting and were happy with the kind of precautions and safety measures producer Rajan Shahi and his Directors’ Kut Production (DKP) took. In a video, the lead stars have thanked them for providing a safe environment to work in.

In the video Mohsin talks about the arrangements on the sets and said, “This video goes out to Rajan Shahi sir, our producer the entire production team, the entire DKP team, the entire staff, who are staying here on the set, they are doing everything here. When we actors come on the sets, they check our body temperature, oxygen level, and they sanitize every room and the entire set two-three times a day. So this is an appreciation video to thank all you guys for being extra careful and doing their extra bit and following all the protocols. We actors want to thank the entire crew, the production, and the producer. Inshallah, this virus will go away soon from the world, and we can get back to the normal shooting but till then we will fight this out. God Bless.”

Shivangi, in her video said, “As you all know we have resumed shooting for our show YRKKH. I am making this video from the set itself, I am in my makeup room. I just want to thank Rajan sir, our producer, and Director’s Kut Production house for taking such utmost care not only for us but for the entire crew. We have thermal and pulse checking, the entire set is sanitized in every three to four hours, makeup rooms are so clean and it is also sanitized every three hours. We have been given personal makeup kit. And in every room, there is a sanitizer bottle, disinfectant sprays, we have been given personal chair with our names labelled. The set is super clean, the toilets are very clean and there are dustbins everywhere, everyone wears mask and face shield, all the protocols are being followed properly. We all are taking all the safety measures and I just want to thank Rajan sir for making us feel super safe and secure.”

Superb work by Rajan Shahi and team DKP.

Five reasons to fall in love with charismatic birthday boy Vivian Dsena!

Five reasons to fall in love with charismatic birthday boy Vivian Dsena!

He keeps a low profile on social media, but every now and then he does something that hits you hard. For example, recently he posted a pic on his Instagram handle with “While helping the poor, leave your camera at home” written on it. That must have made everyone think about the reality of life.

Well, that’s Vivian Dsena for you. The actor ruled the TV industry for over 12 years with back-to-back popular shows like “Pyaar Kii Ek Kahaani”, “Madhubala – Ek Ishq Ek Junoon” and “Shakti – Astitva Ke Ehsaas Ki” and we miss him terribly on-screen. But with the ongoing lockdown, let’s just take a look at reasons he will make you fall for him.

His dimples: Well, dimples surely enhance one’s look, but if you are terribly good looking, those dimples are cherry on top.
The various shades he portrays: Let’s just accept that even when he essays a hero or an anti-hero, Vivian’s popularity and demand has only increased over the years. The ease with which he plays any character makes him a versatile actor.
The chemistry he shared with his co-stars: Have you heard of the terms “Abhiya” (from Abhay and Pia in “Pyaar Kii Ek Kahaani”), “Rishbala” (from Rishabh and Madhubala in “Madhubala- Ek Ishq Ek Junoon”) and “Haya” (from Harman and Soumya in “Shakti – Astitva Ke Ehsaas Ki”). Well that’s the kind of chemistry he shares with his co-stars that makes his fan coin these terms which trend like crazy on social media. Need I say more.
His reserved personality: He is not very active on social media, in fact he accepts that he doesn’t socialise much too. At a time when actors are like an open book to their fans, this reserved personality of Vivian makes you want to have him or know about him more.
That husky voice: I saved the best for the last. His husky voice is one trait that can make anyone fall for him. It is one of the sexiest features of this handsome hunk.

And We are not going to talk about his good looks at all, because they are a treat to sore eyes so we will just leave it to your imagination.
