Rajesh Kumar makes time for mango farming this summer

Actor Rajesh Kumar is one to make sure to take out time for things that matter. The actor is also into mango farming and being part of a TV show doesn’t stop him from taking out time for it. “Hamari Bahu Silk doesn’t take up all of my time because I don’t have to work daily there. I am not into a regular feature of that serial, so I get a lot of time. This is why I picked up this show and so that my farming doesn’t get affected because farming is very seasonal. Mango season comes every year and it needs a lot of attention,” he says.

 

Talking about mango farming, he says, “Right now, I have rented out only two mango farms in Manor, near Mumbai itself. It is completely under surveillance to make sure that no urea or pesticide is used throughout the year. We use cow dung and cow urine, Jivamrit we call it and throughout the year we feed the plants with that so when the time comes, it just gives organic fruit and nothing else. So, no pesticide and no urea is there.”

 

And what if someone wants to buy mangoes from his farm? “If anyone wants to buy mangoes from me then you can contact me on my mobile number itself. Actually, since the quality of mangoes is organic, the quantity on the trees become less but the fruit size is bigger than any other fruit you get in the market. If you see all the Alfonzo in the market, they are the same size, they look like a xerox of ordinary mangoes. But here, we have different sizes, so eat organic, be organic, live organic and eat healthily and be healthy.

In fact, the actor urges everyone to go the organic way. “It’s just a start, I am on a mission to change at least those people who come in contact with me to go the organic way. It’s very easy to be on this side and then accuse the person on the other side. So that is why I jumped on the other side to take all the responsibility and come up with the idea of farms which completely grow organic food. I am jumping into vegetables very soon as well, in another two-three months. It’s important to change the eating behaviour of people that whatever you eat and make your children eat should be organic. I plan to join all other individual farmers who have small land holdings of one acre or 5 acres and collectively working towards one big goal of making India organic,” he says.

Ullu App to produce a web-series on Peshawar’s terrorist attack

Ullu App to produce a web-series on Peshawar’s terrorist attack


Remember the brutal terrorist attack in Peshawar’s Army Public School on December 16, 2014, in which more than 148 people, most of them children, were killed? At that time not only Pakistan, but the whole world, including Indian felt the pain and sorrow. We heard, Ullu App is making a series on the brutal attack.

According to our sources, “The web-series, which is tentatively titled ‘Peshawar’ is terror based love story, which will revolve around people who were involved and killed in a terrorist attack on an army-run school of Pakistan.”

To get, the more details about the series, we got in touch with Ullu’s CEO Vibhu Agarwal. He said, “After Halala, Panchali, Mona Home Delivery and #MeToo, we are coming up with another interesting series. Although, it is based on Peshawar’s terror attack, but we are also exploring another angle, which as of now I won’t be able to reveal.”

When quizzed, why he chose to make a series on terror attacks in Pakistan instead of the Mumbai blasts, URI or Phulwama, Mr. Agarwal said, “Honestly, I wanted to make a series after the URI attack happened. I was also keen on producing a series on 26/11 Mumbai attacks. But since both the terror attacks are already explored, that’s why I decided to drop the idea and chose terror attack on Peshawar. It was a heart wrenching and devastating terror attack. I still wonder how can someone kill innocent school-going kids? It’s been around 5 years, but the wounds are still afresh. Last year, when someone suggested that I produce something on it, I immediately decided to give the green signal.”

We heard Ullu is planning to make a series on Phulwama attack also. Confirming the same, Vibhu said, “Phulwama happened after we did research on Peshawar’s terror attack. Once we complete this series, we will surely come up with something based on Phulwama terror attack.”

If Not an actor I would have been a footballer- Vivian Dsen

 Not many people know that actor Vivian Dsena is a big-time football crazy. Not only does he like to watch football, but he is a terrific football player himself, “Yes, I’m into football big time. I have been playing the sport since I was 10 years old. My father was a professional footballer so in Ujjain quite early in life I developed love for the sports.  my mother was an athlete for Indian Railways and father a footballer for Indian Railways I am a big admirer of Messy and have followed his career graph.
I thrive on footballl as a sports and feel it gives body and mind a perfect balance.
. I prefer football any day over gym or any other sport. To be honest, I have no affinity towards cricket, not even if I am getting paid. For cricket I won’t even travel 2 kms but for playing football I would travel 250 kms too. Cricket I do watch but I will never take an off just to watch cricket. I am aware cricket is religion in India and people are crazy. I am following world cup but only with regards to India. I catch up the score on TV but I am not mad about cricket at all. I feel football need to be encouraged more in India especially in school and colleges. !”
Vivian has played a lot of matches against Bollywood stars as a part of the All Star football team. He explains, “It is a good experience and we all are learning the game. It has been three years now that we have been playing together. Our team is called All Star Football Club. We practice at least four to five days a month, mostly on Sunday evenings. Since everybody has a very hectic schedule, including Ranbir Kapoor,  we have to adjust to everybody’s timings and practice accordingly.  Playing football gives me lot of peace and satisfaction. I have had some back issues when I couldn’t play football for some months. Football si one topic I can talk on for long. Someday I will like to open a football academy for sure. The world players should be invited to India often to encourage the sports. When you meet someone you admire it gives a very different kind of motivation. If I had not been an actor I would have been a footballer for sure.  Football gives me a high of different kind. I play football once a week. More than that is not possible courtesy daily soap shoot. Every actor should play atleast one sport once a week. Gym is fine but there is no substitute of playing a sport.
