Hug Day: Here’s who these TV actors want to hug



Hug Day TV world

Hug Day is here! Our telly actors tell us who they would want to give a hug to in the industry.

Shivin Narang : 

A hug is a very warm feeling. The people you trust, the people you love, the people you want in your life, are the ones who you hug. I have a habit of hugging people but not everyone. I only hug the people I like or the people who are close to me.

When I came to Mumbai, I really wanted to meet SRK and fortunately, I met him and he hugged me. I guess that was a very warm gesture from his side. So, I guess I have already hugged him and there is no one else I would want to hug.

Jason Shah :

A hug from my mom or my friends makes me feel good. I hug my friends when I meet them, whenever I meet the people that I know, I greet them with a hug. I would like to hug Shahrukh Khan because I just feel he needs a hug.

Moon Banerrjee :

Hugging is a form of expressing love and is, in fact, a very powerful one. It exchanges energies in the purest and most compassionate way. A hug straight from the heart can fix a lot of things. I don’t really have the habit of hugging people and I’m very particular about it. It depends on my comfort and connect level but I hug my son all the time. His hug feels home and settled. A Bollywood celebrity I want to hug will be MR SHARUKH KHAN not because I’m a big admirer but I am curious to know what energy he carries with him.

Rehaan Roy :

A hug is certainly an expression of your love and affection towards someone. For me, I love to hug people who I love, be it my friends, my parents or someone special. Hugs release a lot of stress. When I feel low, I really expect my loved ones to just come and hug me and it goes vice versa. One hug that always makes me feel how blessed I am is when I come back home after work and hug my bachha Murphy (My pet).

If given a choice to hug someone from Bollywood, it will certainly be Alia Bhatt as I think she is the cutest amongst all.

Saurabh Pandey :

The value of hugging is precious, it’s very natural, organically, biologically and in every way. When you are full of emotions or love, all you want to do is become one with your loved ones by hugging them tightly. So hugging is something really important as it keeps joy and humanity alive. I am huger, I hug as many people as I can. A Bollywood celebrity whom I would love to hug is Salman Khan.

Ansh Bagri : 

A hug is an expression of exchanging positive energy. It feels really good when someone hugs me when I am feeling low. I do have a habit of hugging people who are close to me, for example, my family members or friends. A Bollywood celebrity I wish to hug will be Mr. Amitabh Bachchan because he is a legendary actor and I have always admired him for his work and the kind of person he is.

Tarun Khurana :

The value of hugging in my life is spreading love and a feeling the warmth of a person’s aura. I do have a habit of hugging people but only with them who are close to me, the people I know.

A Bollywood celebrity that I would want to hug would be Deepika Padukone because I adore her. I just want to hug her and tell her how beautiful she is.

Geetanjali Singh :

Sometimes, all you need is a warm hug and all your problems, your stress disappear. It’s actually a therapy. You can tell the people you love that you love them without saying a thing, through your hugs. I want to hug Irrfan Khan. I want him to be perfectly fine and resume work with more power. One hug is for Kangana. It’s said that ‘In a room where people unanimously maintain a conspiracy of silence, one word of truth sounds like a pistol shot’. She says what she feels like and maybe because of that, she appears very lonely at times. So, I want to give her a big hug and say, ‘I really like you for speaking up your mind with such faith, more power to you girl and don’t worry things will be fine.’ The last hug is for Shahrukh Khan because he is super cute.

Abhishek Tewari :

I value hugs a lot, I’ll tell you all the reasons. Hugs teach us how to give and receive warmth and also how to be in the present moment to celebrate the flow of love energy. Also, hugs encourage empathy and understanding. They connect us to love and care. The cuddles that we receive from our mom and dad and closed ones while growing up helps us develop our ability to self-love and share. Hugs boost our oxytocin and serotonin levels which result in elevating our mood and creating happiness. Hugs strengthen our immune system and are antidepressants. They relax us and release stress. Hugs balance out our nervous system and are parasympathetic.

The Bollywood celebrity I want to hug or give jaadu ki jhapi would be

Mr Amitabh Bachchan. I’ve always felt his presence to be extremely warm and humbling.

Smiriti Kalra :

My hugs are very precious to me. I keep mine in a little silver box with a huge lock. People have to earn my hug. Once I think they are worth it, I unlock my box and give a hug.

People who have earned my trust and love have got my hugs. So, for my close group of people, I am a hugger!

Krishna Bharadwaj :

The day goes great if you get a hug from your loved ones. This is what science says because it generates some hormones. Well, in my life, hugging has a huge value. That warm touch when you hug somebody heals you, cures you and for a moment, it takes away your problems. My friends say I give super warm hugs. And I always hug people. When I reach the set also, I hug my director and co-actors, and the day is all positive and smiley. We should hug people as it spreads the love. I would love to hug every celebrity from Bollywood as we actors spread love through work, through our stories, our films, serials.

Adaa Khan :

The value of hugging someone you really have a special bond with is like pure happiness. It makes me feel like everything is okay and anything is possible. It calms my mind as I am very restless all the time. I would want to hug Ranveer Singh because I love his energy and positivity so I can guzzle up his energy.

Khalid Siddiqui :

It’s a very beautiful expression of emotion. It’s an expression of making the other person feel close to you, comfortable, wanted and loved. I always hug people who are close to me. I don’t believe in shaking hands, I believe in hugging. I would like to hug Sonali Bendre and tell her that she has been great and everyone is so proud of her.

Tinaa Dattaa :

Hugging always makes me feel good but I am very selective. I only hug people who are close to me, for example, my bestest friends. The feeling which I get by hugging mom and dad is the most perfect feeling. The Bollywood celebs who I would like to hug are Shahrukh Khan and Ranveer Singh because they are my favorites. Their energy is quite infectious.

Ssharad Malhotra :

I like to receive energy via hugs from people who matter, especially my friends. I hug my dog Musky a lot and he feels delighted and loves me unconditionally. Shahrukh Khan is someone I would like to hug.

Jasmin Bhasin :

I don’t hug people randomly. I am extremely selective. I give the maximum hugs to my pet Mia. If I have to hug anyone in Bollywood it has to be Ranbir Kapoor as his aura and acting are amazing.

Arjun Bijlani :

Hugging someone close to your heart gives you a very beautiful feeling. I hug my son Ayaan daily. If given a choice to hug a Bollywood celebrity, it would be Alia Bhatt as she comes across as a very positive and vibrant person and she is a very good actress as well.

The voice over is a witty and sarcastic way and completely opposite of what peace and love looks like in real life. Baaghiyon Ka Beehad where peace is symbolized by gun fires, love among people is symbolized by fights, a conversation is symbolized by abuses and a blessing is symbolized by hitting.
The makers quoted the video “बाग़ियों ke beehad mein hamesha शान्ति rehti है, sab bade प्यार se joh rehte hai! Miliye inse 1st March से aapke nazdeki सिनेमाघरों में!” The video showcases heavy action sequences with powerful dialogue delivery which gives you a quick tour through the Chambal.

Starring Sushant Singh Rajput, Bhumi Pednekar, Manoj Bajpayee, Ranvir Shorey, and Ashutosh Rana in lead roles, Sonchiriya promises to be a power packed film giving us a glimpse of the tales of dacoit in the Chambal region during 1975 emergency.

Krishna Bharadwaj awarded with Indori Ratna for Tenali Rama

Actor Krishna Bharadwaj, who plays the lead role in Tenali Rama, was recently awarded the Indori Ratna by Sanstha Indorians. The actor says that even though he is not from Indore, he bagged it thanks to the popularity of the show. “The event was called Indori Ratna Awards. So basically, people of Indore who are from different fields like art, culture, sports and other departments are given Indori Ratna awards. But this time they called me in spite of the fact that I am not from Indore. They gave me the Indori Ratna as the show Tenali Rama is a big hit in Indore and doing very well there,” says Krishna, who was also gifted a special cut out by the Tenali Rama fan club.

Talking about the experience, he says, “The experience was completely mesmerizing as when I landed there was so much crowd gathered to see me. Some people wanted to take selfies and others just wanted a glimpse of me. It felt great to see my character being loved. I wished I was from Indore as I got so much love from them, something that I could have never got from my hometown too. At 12 in the night, they specially opened the Khajrana Temple of Lord Ganesha in Indore for me and I worshipped it.”

The actor says that hard work and passion has always been his mantra to success. “I am in acting from the last 13-14 years. I have been acting since I was 4-years-old in Doordarshan and Akashwani. In Mumbai, from the last 14 years, I have learned that perseverance and passion always pay you back. Your dream and your hard work never go waste. I always dreamt a little more than usual. I always worked a little more than normal. I always wanted to become big. I haven’t reached that extent of success what I wanted but I have started my journey,” he says.

The actor says that fan love makes everything worth it. “Getting recognised and love from you fans feels good. I am getting many awards including this Indori Ratna for Tenali Rama. The response is always amazing and the love from them is great. As an actor, you always want appreciation and adulation from people and I am getting that,” he says.

An artist works more for appreciation than money : Abhijit Das



An artist works more for appreciation than money : Abhijit Das

Art is all about love, expression, liberation and faith. But as business takes over art, mistrust and insecurities creeps in to corrupt the whole fabric of art. From plagiarism to cheated artists to unpaid assignments. Artists seem to be at the receiving end of this industrializations of art. The world of literature, films, and performing arts are filled with such examples. Most of them unknown to the world. The recent victim is writer and director, Abhijit Das. He has gone unpaid and not even credited for 2 short film stories he wrote for Viacom Motion Pictures through Mohona Films.

In the beginning of 2017, he was approached by Ronita Mitra of Mohona Films to conceptualise short content for Viacom Motion Pictures and Tipping Point Films. He wrote a couple of stories of which 2 scripts were approved by Viacom. He spent a couple of months developing the scripts, the look and made multiple presentations for Mohona Films. It took time for the project to move ahead and he got busy with a daily soap, Dil Sambhal Jaa Zara on Star Plus. Thus he couldn’t take the stories forward with Viacom. Ronita followed up a couple of times with Abhijit and finally requested him to sign over the stories to Mohona Films. With sheer trust and humility, he signed a non-legal document and gave the rights of the stories to them. Debatma Mandal was brought in by them to direct the films. The project finally went on floor with Viacom and the films were complete by end of 2018. In the first week of February 2019 Voot Originals announced the launch of the 2 films. The premiere was held, the promos were released and social media was filled with happy posts of the 2 well acclaimed short films. But unfortunately no credit was given to Abhijit Das for the story. There was no mention of him in the film, the release press conference or the social media posts. The person who wrote the stories and got the project rolling, was forgotten completely. He was paid only 20% of the agreed amount because apparently the producers had made losses. A call to Mohona Films resulted in them insulting Abhijit and hanging up on him. Apparently he had disappeared on them and thus didn’t deserve any money or credit. But then why did they chase him to hand over the rights? Why did they use the stories he had written and pitched along with them if he had done nothing in the project?

Abhijit says,”An artist works more for appreciation than money. Appreciation and celebration of the efforts of an artist don’t need money. The distributors and channels need to be aware that once art is corrupted by mistrust and apprehension, it’s the content which gets violated. It’s not pure any more. One shouldn’t start creating with preconditions and apprehensions. It’s like a #metoo of intellectual property where the perpetrators need to be talked about and justice needs to be given to the survivors. Because it’s nothing short of violation of the chastity of art. And the more we stay silent, the more we encourage this exploitation in the name of business.”
