Swipe for love? Actors give their view

Published

Dating apps seem to be in the in thing to find love in today’s day and age. Here is what TV actors have to say about this.

Shivin Narang:

As a public figure, I feel it’s okay to be on such an app. The problem is people find it fake. It happened to me. I was on a dating app and people thought that it was a fake account. I deleted it, as most of the people think that celebrities cannot be on such apps. I fully support such apps as they have made people more confident about meeting new people and understanding each other. We can express ourselves easily. I think it’s really very cool.

Sahil Anand:

These apps are only for casual dating and not serious stuff. I am not on such apps. In India are really mistaken about these apps. It’s only for casual dating. People are not themselves on these apps. Even kids today know about what these apps are and why are they used. If an actor wants to be on such an app and if he is, then who are we to judge? An actor has his own personal life and he can live the way he wants.

Ira Sone:

Times have changed where everyone is moving, by the clock in big cities, in such a scenario I feel there’s very little room left for meeting someone special organically. The digital world is ruling in every space be it shopping to buying vegetables to ordering a meal, so there’s no shying away from a dating app as a tool to find a romantic partner.  Yes, I am on dating apps and I think it gives me a broader chance to meet people from different parts of the globe. In real life or on dating apps there will always be a bunch of decent men and a bunch of shallow thinkers, it’s you who gets to decide which one to pick.

Angad Hasija:

I don’t really believe in such apps. It’s not for serious and genuine people. I believe people just talk to people for some purpose or selfish reasons but if you think you will get some long life friend or a person for a serious relationship here, that’s wrong. I don’t think it is okay for actors to be on such apps because people connect to actors and then blackmail them, it’s harmful to them. It’s kind of fake and I never have been on such apps and never will be. My friends had an experience where a girl was talking through a fake account and she wasn’t what who she was presenting herself as.

Ansh Bagri:

I won’t say that these dating apps are just for flings or hookups if you are destined to meet the right one, the path could be any. I don’t feel anything is wrong in being on these dating apps, serious relationships don’t develop with such apps it happens when you meet people, understand and finally, you develop feelings for each other. People have just blamed these apps for no reason I feel if you are doing something for fun and the other person is mutually involved then there’s nothing wrong as far as you are not hurting anyone. These apps don’t guarantee you serious relationship or true love, we should not judge anyone who is on tinder or any other app. It’s like being on just another social media website. A few years back I was on Tinder and I met a few people and I never took it as a fling app and I also did an ad for Tinder.

Rohitashv Gour:

I have never been on any of these apps. I don’t think such apps are good as people who have no sense of responsibility towards life and who just want to enjoy and have a casual relationship, go on such apps. I would say nobody should trust such apps because people who are just into casual things and just want to fool around are on such apps be it, men or women. Maybe 1 out of 100 relationships might work in such a scenario.

Rahul Sharma:

I have never been on such apps and I never would with what I have heard I am disappointed with what people have been doing and using these apps for. I don’t think it’s possible to find someone special or true love on such sites, it’s very rare and these kinds of sites connect you. I don’t think it helps you find the right person. As a public figure, I don’t think one can be on it. I am not against it, I personally don’t like to be on it and would never be.

Priyanka Choudhary: I want to do roles that willl find a connect with masses and they can easily relate

TV actress Priyanka Choudhary, who was last seen on Gathbandhan, who recently changed her name from Pari to Priyanka is looking forward to doing challenging roles both in films and television. Her dream role is the one that Kareena Kapoor played in Jab We Met and Alia Bhatt in Highway. She says, “Defining a particular role would be a tad bit unfair. Expectations often lead to preconceived notions, and that’s the last thing one wants. Having said that, doing a role like Kareena from Jab We Met or Alia Bhatt from Highway would definitely be very interesting. Kareena’s role is similar to how I am as a person, and Alia’s role on the contrary would be a challenge as it’s a totally different mindset I would have to adapt too!”

The actress aspires to be remembered for the variety of roles she gets to essay onscreen and mostly the viewers should connect with it.

Priyanka has a great physique and she keeps fit with her regular cardio sessions. She says, “Regular cardio sessions, sleeping on time and no late meals is important.” The actress has no qualms in wearing a bikini on screen if the role demands it. She says, “I think it all depends on the script in front of you and vision of the director. If the scene requires a bikini, and it is being depicted in a tasteful manner, I’m okay with it. ”

Finally, Priyanka connects with TV shows that were made a decade back. She says, “I think Indian TV over the years has given us content that’s far better than anything in the shorter format. A Sarabhai vs Sarabhai, Hum Paanch or a Dekh Bhai Dekh would anyway still be popular amongst common people. TV has its own reach and it’s own audience. I think we all have to respect that.”

Trishaan Singh Maini roped in for Mohini Shabade’s #Mandi

We reported earlier that Mohini Shabade’s web-series for Prime Flix underwent a name change from Brothel to #Mandi. Now we heard, Trishaan Singh Maini, who was seen in Vikram Bhatt’s Hadh has been roped in to play one of the leads in the series.

When contacted Trishaan told us, “I am playing an ambitious Software Engineer in the series, who fell in love with a girl. Later he was shell-shocked, when he came to know about the sexual orientation of his girlfriend.”

When quizzed, what is the USP of the web-series, ‘Sarabjit’ actor said, “The story and the way character’s are portrayed is charismatic, and I feel that’s the USP of #Mandi. I am grateful to our producer Mohini (Shabade) for choosing this beautiful subject and I am very fortunate to be a part of her show.”

The green-eyed Delhi lad shared an interesting co-incident with us. “In Gehraiyaan, Sanjeeda Sheikh fell in love with someone else, while in ‘Hadh’ my girlfriend cheated on me. And now in #Mandi, my partner is a bit confused whether she should be with me or not. So this will be the third consecutive time my on-screen partner is going to leave me for someone else(laughs),” he said jokingly.

For the uninitiated, the web-series was earlier titled ‘Brothel’. It is produced by Mohini Shabade, Ashu Dhaliwal, and Akshy Mishra under their banner Mighty Grace Media. Also, Mohini has co-produced Chak De Fame Sagrika Gathge’s upcoming Marathi film titled Monsoon Football.
