Ira Sone and her struggle with POF



Actor Ira Sone is not one to let anything deter her in life. The actor was diagnosed with POF (Premature Ovarian Failure, a syndrome which makes women hit menopause early. However, she overcame it with the right lifestyle. “POF is a non-reversible syndrome but with diet and fitness, it can be controlled and delayed. POF ( premature ovarian failure ) is a syndrome where women hit menopause in their 30’s. Thankfully, my reports are showing slow but steady improvement. As per the data, only 1% of the women have this syndrome hence the knowledge is minimal and so there’s a complication in treatment,” she says.


Ask her how she manages to stay calm through all this, and she says, “I used to be constantly anxious and worried about what next and how life will unfold. But now, thanks to my team (doctor and dietitian), life is good. I do have stressful days but I am determined to live a fuller life and enjoy every moment of it.”


She adds, “I follow a diet prescribed by my dietitian Jaydeep Bhuta. It’s a personalised diet based on my detailed test reports. Diet is not about just what you eat but having an understanding of what it does to your body. That’s when it gets easy to stay on a diet.”

This journey has taught her a lot, says Ira. “I learnt a lot. The biggest lesson was how to be aware of. I’m constantly aware of how I’m feeling. I learnt what’s best for my mind and body,” she adds.


Ask her what she would like to say to anyone suffering from POF, and she says, “The only advice I have for anyone who suffers from POF syndrome is to reboot your lifestyle and stay strong. With healthy living and eating, you will definitely be able to enjoy a fuller life. Don’t let moods pull you down.”

No idle play on the set of Ek Bhram Sarvagun Sampanna



Not every set sees across hierarchy gelling off camera. But if you go on the set of Dipti Kalwani’s Ek Bhram Sarvagun Sampanna you will see the cast is engrossed in a game of chess. Actress Tina Philip who is playing the role of Ishani Vyas says,” We have a great team of actors and on and off the camera we are having a great time. If someone comes to our set they can see it during the off period. Parikshit Sahni, Ayub Khan, Zain Imam we all play the game of chess on the set. I share an extremely warm vibe with Parikshit Sahni. He calls me My English Lady off camera. Since my childhood I used to play chess and whenever I used to get some time I used to go to Carter road in Mumbai where one can see the live size chess board in the form of a table. In fact, the cast of Sarvagun Sampanna is extremely creative and positive. There is not a single dull moment on the set.”

Gym; A place to work out or meet new people?



From meetings friends to having affairs and even finding your one true love, the gym has become quite a hotspot for a myriad of activities today. Here is what our TV think about this trend.

Sumit Kaul:

I have always seen the gym as a place to exercise. Its possible others may use it for other purposes, but I personally feel every activity needs an ambience and gym provides a good ambience to work out. My interaction in the gym is mostly with my trainer. I maintain a cordial relationship with everyone else. Having said that, I can imagine that some others may use the gym for networking or making friends. To each his own, but I think it’s a waste of time, money and space if you do anything other than working out at the gym.

Ramman Handa: 

Fitness is something that has become a passion for people nowadays and acting as a profession has fitness as a basic requirement. So, gym business has become very advanced and the infrastructure for the gym involves a very hep environment. Certainly, along with the fitness regime, people do network and modern gyms with good interiors give them a place to chill as well. And there’s no harm in meeting as many people as you can irrespective of the place where you meet them. I workout in my building gym only and certainly I have got to know so many people residing in my building through the gym. Also, this has helped me to expand my business. My WhatsApp has a gym friends group and at times we all party and plan our workouts together.

Asmita Sood:

Although I have heard about such incidents from my friends, I myself don’t entertain any “friendly” advances from anyone in the gym. I barely get 15 days in a month to work out due to my hectic work schedules thus I prefer devoting my energy sincerely to my body and not chit-chatting. I talk only to my trainer and I guess that is enough!


Shubhaavi Choksey:

 I honestly don’t have any views or options about this topic as it is none of my business what someone else wants to do or is doing. It is their life and their prerogative. As for me, I workout alone in my gym due to my timings and before the gym was in our building, I would only go there with my husband.

Bhanujeet Sudan Singh:

For me, a gym is a place where I go to work out and I do that for almost 2 and a half hours. When I workout, I don’t even realise who is next to me, I just need my machines and empty space. I don’t need any company. But I have seen that people start connecting and talking and at times, they come to me and start talking as well, while I am working out, which I find really irritating. I have seen girls and boys meeting and asking each other out at the gym. I don’t think it’s a big thing just as earlier people used to meet at parties and have affairs, now it happens at gyms too.

Nishant Malkani:

Any place of gathering where women and men come together, there’s always wandering eyes and search for the right partner. Everyone in today’s time is in search of the right partner, a gym is a place where a lot of good looking people come together. They are excited and have a lot of adrenaline rushing through them. It’s a place where people meet and if they hit it off, there might be no looking back. But this could happen at any place, be it a club or at a house party. Though, off late people actually, take gym memberships on the basis of the kind of crowd that comes there.


Sahil Anand:

You cannot blame just the gym, networking and meeting people happens everywhere. It can be a workplace or a party anywhere. I don’t network much with people because I know if I will bond, I won’t be able to work out.

Many people look up at superheroes,
Mine is my dad.

From seeing you push on from your ups and down,
You always managed to turn things around,
Looking at you turned my frown upside down.

A single word won’t do justice to what you mean to me,
But from here on now I’m not that kid anymore I’ve got you’re back indefinitely.
I owe my life to you cause without you I would never have had anything,
My ray of sunshine through everything.
Cause no matter how big the problem you never gave up,
And always came out of it with your head up.

I don’t think there ever will be anyone as tough,
Dad because of you I’m a fighter and I promise you I’ll never give up. #HappyFathersDay @iamsunnydeol
