Explore some picture-postcard worthy places with Ankit Siwach

Not a self-confessed traveller, but Ankit Siwach makes the most of it whenever he can. And he will soon take you on a visual trip with his travel show “Safarnama”, which will air on Epic channel, to some of the most picturesque and serene places.

He says through his show he wanted to take the audience through unique places and life stories.

Talking about the show, he said, “This is the first time that I have anchored a travel show, as makers, we thought that there is a dearth of informative TV shows which are absolutely interactive and real. Therefore, we decided to start with a travel show which covers real people, unique places and life stories. The show is very organic and improvised as situations struck us. It has been shot beautifully and is like a breath of fresh air in the lockdown era.”

“The show starts from Mumbai. We reach Delhi and from there we cover Kullu, Manali, Rohtang pass, Ladakh, Leh, Sarchu, Kargil, Pangong Lake, Pakistan border, China border and hundreds of landmarks worth visiting and knowing,” he added.

Travel show hosts generally wear gorgeous or straight-out-the-red-carpet clothes on-screen, which sometimes do look out of the place. But not Ankit, he has tried to keep it casual and comfortable throughout the show.

“I have tried to keep it sporty, casual and comfortable throughout the show. There were instances where temperatures were very low, and I had to stay fit during the shoot, so in those cases, fashion is avoided and I picked up everything that could keep me warm,” he shared about his wardrobe.

Ankit tired the knot with long-time girlfriend Nupur Bhatia in February 2020 and revealed that they went to Italy for their honeymoon and stayed there for almost fifteen days to explore the country as extensively as they could.

But when asked to share his favourite travel destination in India or abroad, he said, “I cannot decide one, from Banaras, Jaisalmer, Mussorie, Manali to Ladakh, Goa and Pondicherry, I love the rich diversity that our country owns, every place has a different vibe, a unique essence and warm, welcoming people with food to die for.”

He was last seen on the small screen in popular TV drama “Beyhadh 2”, which was pulled down during the nationwide lockdown. He essayed the role of Vikram Jaisingh and says the show came as a surprise to him and added, “My character was accepted by the audience from the very first scene, even though I joined the show very late, the story was such and performers so good that it caught the audiences’ engagement.”

“I just had to soak myself completely in the story, and it went with a flow. I so wanted this to continue as it had so much left to show and reveal, but it was shut for the most valid reasons. I definitely miss being on ‘Beyhadh 2’ set,” he added.

The “Rishton Ka Chakravyuh” actor also opened up about the Coronavirus pandemic which the whole world is fighting with and said that health comes first, everything else is secondary.

“The pandemic has changed the world, and it is such a mayhem that nobody knows what exactly is going on, nobody can judge or decide what is going to happen next. The same goes for entertainment industry, there is a sharp shift towards OTT platforms, if people choose this as their future of entertainment, there is certainly going to be a massive change in content and making. Right now, we need to fight this through, work can be sorted out later when we come out healthy after this pandemic is over,” he said.

Ankit will soon be making his Bollywood debut with “Banaras Vanilla” and says it’s very special because it’s his first movie. Other than this, Ankit shared, “I am also planning on short films and feature films with my partner Ishan Jacob and would be working on the same when COVID scare is no longer impacting us. I always have my heart and mind open for good scripts for any platform.”

Ooh la la, check out Shashank Vyas’ drool-worthy pics

Shashank Vyas has made fans go gaga over him since the day he stepped in the industry. He made his acting debut with social drama “Balika Vadhu” and will soon be seen in Bollywood film “Laila Manju”.

The actor has a huge following on social media and he keeps them engaged with his pics. Speaking of pics, have you checked out Shashank’s new pics yet. The handsome actor looks quite hunky in the pics and will definitely make you go ooh la la.

It’s commendable how he can so easily rock a clean shaven look and even a beard and still look so hot. And did I forget to mention those pics with his chiselled body. Be it a casual tee and jeans or a formal attire, he looks lit in all of them.

And if you thought Shashank is just a good looking guy, think again. He can easily bowl you over with his poetry. In fact, he has so far written three poems, one on the plight of migrant labourers, another a romantic tragedy and one a tribute to late actor Sushant Singh Rajput.

Rupali Ganguly is elated to perform Hawa Hawai in Anupamaa

Rajan Shahi’s Anupamaa is being appreciated and accepted by the audience. The show has been talk of the town for various reasons, whether it is the perfect casting of the lead Anupamaa by Rupali Ganguly and Vanraj by Sudhanshu Pandey with a stellar supporting cast or the high emotional connect with the audience are glued to the show.
Anupamaa has a lot of song and dance sequences which helps the show to go forward from time to time. Recently one of the cult songs of Hindi films Hawa Hawai from Mr. India has been shot with Rupali Ganguly.

Speaking about the whole experience of shooting Hawa Hawai Rupali says,” There is nobody in this world who can match steps with Sridevi. Thanks to Rajan Shahi who has given me so many opportunities in the show. I can’t thank him enough. Through Anupamaa all of my dreams and wishes are coming true.
I remember I have seen Mr. India as a trial show in Ajanta. It was a full house so all the kids were sitting down and then, later on, I have seen the film at Satyam theatre. In fact, I want my kid to watch Mr. India as his first film. You can’t remove Sridevi from Hawa Hawai. The dance moves of Sridevi were ultimate. In my childhood I have performed so many of Sridevi’s film songs, whether it is Nagina, Chalbaaz or Mr. India – she has been my favourite idol. I am a big fan of her work, I remember when she passed away I cried miserably and also went to give my last respect to her. This performance is a small and humble tribute to Sridevi.” Along with Rupali the rest of the cast Paras Kalnawat, Muskaan Bamne, Aashish K N Mehrotra, Jasveer Kaur also danced in the song. The song will be telecasted tomorrow.

‘अनुपमा’ शो में रुपाली गांगुली ने किया ‘हवा हवाई’ सॉन्ग पर परफॉर्म !

राजन शाही द्वारा प्रोड्यूस किया गया स्टार प्लस का ‘अनुपमा’ शो दर्शकों द्वारा खूब सराहा जा रहा है। यह शो कई दिनों तक अनेक कारणों से चर्चा में रहा, चाहे वह शो की अनुपमा यानि रूपाली गांगुली और वनराज बने सुधांशु पांडे द्वारा निभाए गए प्रमुख किरदार की सही कास्टिंग को लेकर हो या फिर दर्शकों के साथ एक उच्च भावनात्मक जुड़ाव को लेकर हो।

अनुपमा शो में ऐसे कई गाने और डांस सीक्वेंस हैं जो शो को समय-समय पर आगे बढ़ने में मदद करते हैं। हाल ही में मिस्टर इंडिया फिल्म के कल्ट सांग, हवा हवाई गाने पर रूपाली गांगुली के साथ शूट किया गया है। रूपाली ने अपने शो के लिए इस गाने को दोबारा रिक्रिएट किया है।

हवा हवाई के डांस सीक्वेंस की शूटिंग पर बात करते हुए रुपाली गांगुली कहती हैं, “इस दुनिया में ऐसा कोई नहीं है जो श्रीदेवी के साथ कदम मिला सके। राजन शाही का शुक्रिया, जिन्होंने मुझे शो में ऐसे कई मौके दिए। मैं उनका जितना धन्यवाद करूँ वह कम है। अनुपमा के माध्यम से मेरे सभी सपने और इच्छाएं पूरी हो रही हैं। मुझे याद है कि मैंने मिस्टर इंडिया को अजंता में एक ट्रायल शो के रूप में देखा है। यह पूरी तरह हाउस फूल था इसलिए सभी बच्चे नीचे बैठे थे और फिर बाद में मैंने सत्यम थिएटर में फिल्म देखी। वास्तव में मैं चाहती हूँ कि मेरा बच्चा मिस्टर इंडिया को अपनी पहली फिल्म के रूप में देखे। आप श्रीदेवी को हवा हवाई से तो कत्तई नहीं निकाल सकते। श्रीदेवी के डांस मूव्स अल्टीमेट थे। मैंने बचपन में श्रीदेवी के कई फिल्मी गानों पर परफॉर्म किया है, चाहे वह नगीना हो, चालबाज़ या मिस्टर इंडिया हो वह मेरी पसंदीदा आइडियल रही हैं। मैं उनके काम की बहुत बड़ी फैन हूं। यह प्रदर्शन श्रीदेवी को एक छोटी और विनम्र श्रद्धांजलि है।”

रूपाली के साथ बाकी कलाकार पारस कलनावत, मुस्कान बामने, आशीष के एन मेहरोत्रा, जसवीर कौर ने भी मेरे साथ इस गाने में डांस किया है। इस गाने को कल के एपिसोड में टेलीकास्ट किया जाएगा।
