This lockdown has brought the Raja and Runk on the same level. Celebs share their views

Gone are the days when people wanted materialistic things in their life for their comfort and fun. Believe it or not, but the new luxury is – roti kapada aur makaan. The nationwide lockdown made everyone fight for these basic needs, be it the rich or the poor, everyone was trying to get these for their survival. The lockdown has brought the so called Rajas and the Runks on the same level. Do you agree?

Well, here are some celebs sharing their views on the same:

Vijayendra Kumeria: I have always believed in the concept of ‘simple living, high thinking’. Yes, it’s true that these days people are living a simple life with fewer options. But we humans can’t stick to this basic form of living, so once everything is better, we will start the rat race again. But we need to remember that we shouldn’t be overconfident about future and planning.

Shashank Vyas: The story which says raja and runk are equal, it’s not true. Not everyone is baking cakes at their home. It’s a very hard time for few, whereas some are enjoying fantastic lifestyle. People who are daily wagers or middle class who are dependent on monthly income they can’t cook or pay money for baking cakes. The thing is it is not equal to everyone it is different to everyone. We are in the same house but in one room people have all the facilities and in another room there is no facility and luxury, so how it is same the condition. We can’t say that everyone is equal, there is a huge difference between rich and poor and eventually it will grow.

Jasmin Bhasin: I totally agree, during this time even I felt that roti kapda and makan are the basic needs. Now I have learnt that we live in such a superficial world and we have materialistic things to keep ourselves happy but the bottom line our family and these basic amenities are the only thing we need. Also, during this time I realised that we are so used to of not doing our own work, we are dependent and spoilt, so now, I have started valuing my help and staff more.

Sudipto Balav: In my view the worlds of the Raja and Runk, in our country, are completely different because the disparity between these two segments are huge. While the privileged is deprived of the luxuries of life like shopping, dining, outing, going to the gym, the underprivileged segment is not able to fend for the basic necessities like food for the family, rent, medical needs etc. so these two worlds are completely different altogether. As far as I am concerned, I am blessed with the basic needs and have been fortunate enough that I got a chance to utilize this time to introspect, focus on my craft, health and on my personal relationships.

Arun Mandola: In difficult times like this, we all are equal, all of us are fighting the same coronavirus, and when it comes to God he doesn’t see who is raja or rank. This is a big lesson for those people who think he/she can do anything. We all know “jab insaan iss duniya se jata hai to khaali hath jata hai” but still we don’t care. It took a virus to teach us to be human, help people, love humanity and respect mother nature.

Harssh A Singh: Even though lockdown has hit us hard, I still believe that we are so much more fortunate than 80% of the Indian population whose situation is just worse. Having said that I read about two television actors who committed suicide because of lack of work. I just want to say everyone is helpless and scared and worried, but we need to remember a few things ‘You are Not alone’, everyone is going through their own troubles, so reach out to anyone, talk to a friend or anyone before taking that drastic decision. No one has just particular talent or one source of income. So, take your time to explore other fields. I know of businessmen who have started teaching cooking online, and people are loving it. Raja and rank are equal, which means we are all in it together, don’t give up, reach out or be someone who other people can reach out to.

Aaira Dwivedi: Today I am grateful to every single person who made my life easier, it is because of them we are able to go out and pursue our career, so when things get normal, don’t forget to let them know that you value them. For me food, water, a roof over my head and good health of my near and dear ones holds top importance, everything else is a bonus that I bow my head in gratitude for. But, after looking at the hardship of those who struggle for even basic necessities, I don’t think that basic is basic for everyone. In this tough time we have to stand by each other and protect our own. I want to help as many as possible in the best of my abilities. This time has also made us all realize what’s truly important. If this time is respected for what it is, it will enable more light to shine through. Humanity will rise and we will win this war. May everyone be safe and secure.

Moin Sabri: People who have money they are utilizing it now. The poor people are struggling for basics whereas the rich people have their own struggles. As per Maslow’s theory of needs ‘Jiske pass jitna hai utna hath faila raha hai’. It’s that simple.

Here is why actor Pearl V Puri ditches the flights and drives to Agra from Mumbai to be with his parents

Here is why actor Pearl V Puri ditches the flights and drives to Agra from Mumbai to be with his parents

Actor Pearl V Puri talks about his experience of travelling from Mumbai to Agra by road, and says that his parents were elated on seeing him, especially his mother who was extremely worried.

With interstate travel now allowed after relaxations in regulations, many are taking the first available opportunity and heading back home to be with their families. TV actor Pearl V Puri also drove from Mumbai to Agra last week, to be with his parents.

While flights are a preferred option for quick travel, Puri chose to take the road. He shares how, along with one of his friend, completed this 24-hour-long drive in his car and reached home safely.

“I don’t think flights are safe right now,” says Puri, adding, “From what I’ve heard, many have been infected while on their way. My parents are old, so I didn’t want to take any chance with their health. We had stocked up on food and other essentials and stopped once or twice in between in unpopulated areas.”

Even though the journey was “tiresome”, it was “worth it” for the Naagin 3 actor, whose parents — Vipin and Pummy Puri — were elated and emotional on seeing him.

“Since the lockdown my mother has been worried about my health. And after Sushant Singh Rajput’s death, so much that has been happening around, she was all the more worried and would often end up crying while talking on phone. That was one of the major reasons why I decided to take this journey,” he shares.

For someone like Puri, who often takes trips to his home town whenever he would get spare time in between shoots, this three-month-long lockdown was too much to handle.

“This pandemic has definitely made us realise the importance of families in our lives. That we must coexist with other living being sin nature and show love and respect to all. I might sound philosophical here, but that’s what I felt during these days,” he explains.

Janhit Mein Jaari: Watch Kettan Singh explain nepotism in the quirkiest way possible

Kettan Singh is back again with his fabulous show “Janhit Mein Jaari” and the recent episode was dedicated to the most talked about topic “Nepotism”. Titled “Nepotism – A Curse or a Boon”, Kettan talks about dynasty politics as well in the video.

The word nepotism was used popularly for Bollywood, especially after Kangana Ranaut called Karan Johar as the “flag-bearer of nepotism” on his chat show “Koffee With Karan”. It is being talked about again now after the sad demise of actor Sushant Singh Rajput. He was found hanging at his Bandra home on June 14. Post his demise, people from the industry and the netizens said that the “Kai Po Che!” star succumbed to depression as he became a victim of nepotism.

In the beginning of the episode, Kettan said, “This word existed in the dictionary but came into limelight after Kangana Ranaut used it on Karan Johar’s chat show ‘Koffee With Karan’ and called him the flag-bearer of nepotism. And the social media made it viral.”

He explained that the word came from latin words nepos which means nephews and mentioned how nepotism existed even during the times of Ramayan, and even in politics. He also admitted that nepotism is not just limited to India or Bollywood, it happens in Hollywood as well as Western countries. It is not something which is industry specific.

Though he shared some statistics and figures and elaborated more on nepotism, the audience will not once get bored in the nine minute video.

Flight delay plays spoilsport on Srman Jain’s birthday plans

TV actor Srman Jain was planning to celebrate his birthday on July 1 with his family in Agra after almost 14 years. However, a last-minute call for shooting in Mumbai, followed by the local airline’s postponing of flight played spoilsport. The Trideviyaan actor was in his hometown, Agra, ever since the lockdown was imposed. “Ever since I moved to Mumbai in 2006, I never got a chance to celebrate my birthday with my family. Everyone was planning to celebrate in a big way this year. I was supposed to catch a flight on July 1 (Srman’s birthday date). As there is no direct flight from Agra to Mumbai, I took a flight from Jaipur, which is the nearest airport. We had a pre-birthday celebration on June 30. We had a family feast, along with a cake-cutting ceremony. When I reached Jaipur, I was informed that the flight was postponed to 2 pm. I had to stay at a family friend’s place in Jaipur, and neither could I celebrate my birthday with my family, nor could I reach on time to resume the shoot.”
