This time, last year: How a wheelchair-bound Ashna struggled for life

The very chirpy and outgoing Ashna Kishore only wishes to bring a smile on the face of her fans and even credits them for encouraging and motivating her. The beautiful actress is currently seen as Kat or Katori Singh in the comedy show “Happu Ki Ultan Paltan”. While the whole world is fighting against the Coronavirus, her challenges are a little different as she literally fought for her life this time in 2019.

Sharing the painful memory the “Meri Durga” actress said that she was diagnosed with Leptospirosis, commonly known as rat fever, and was in the hospital for over a month. Her condition had become so worse that the doctors even gave up on her at one point, but like a true fighter, she beat the odds and stood on her feet. “In 2019, while I was shooting for the same show ‘Happu Ki Ultan Paltan’, I got this very rare disease Leptospirosis, which mainly affects the organs. With that, I was also diagnosed with Dengue and was suffering from food poisoning and dehydration. In two days I dropped almost 12kgs. In fact, I was not eating for days. I was on oxygen for three days in the hospital. All of that happened so suddenly that even the doctors said it will be difficult to save her,” she said.

That’s not it. She was in terrible agony as she couldn’t even walk and was wheelchair-bound for a long time. And though the doctors had asked her to be on bed rest, her passion for acting made her go back on the set sooner than advised.

“I was on a wheelchair at that time. And I had become so weak that I couldn’t walk. My parents helped me learn how to walk again like a baby. I even suffered memory loss. My immune system had become very weak at that time, and the doctors had asked me to take rest, but I still went back on the set while recovering from it. I want to make people happy with my show and that made me push my limits and start shooting again,” the “Tere Sheher Mein” actress said.

The memory of the incident still gives her a lot of pain, but she went on and said, “Even now my immunity is not that strong, but I am still shooting and it’s a big risk that I am taking. In fact, it’s the same time of 2019 and I am a little scared but I want to make people happy with my show. It’s a great joy to put a smile on someone’s face and that keeps me going.”

But she is a brave woman and said that the last year taught her to be strong no matter what life throws at you. She credits her family and her fans for giving her the motivation to work again.

“When the lockdown was announced and we were at home for three months, so that’s the only break I got in a year’s time. I went back on the set soon after I came back from the hospital. I was a little apprehensive about resuming shoot right now, but I think the last year taught me how I can strongly overcome all hurdles and challenges. Mentally, I felt so low but my family helped me throughout, especially my fans, they were all messaging me and asking me when am I going to come back, so this time too I thought I will do it for them. My fans and everyone appreciated my work even more last year,” she said with a tone of excitement.

Ashna shared that even during the lockdown her fans kept appreciating her good work and said, “People were messaging me and saying that they are watching the reruns of my show. So, I thought even during these bad times if I can make someone smile, there’s nothing better than that. And if reruns made them so happy, the new episodes make them happier.” The “Meri Durga” actress, however, admits that the memories of the incident haunt her at times but she doesn’t let affect her in any way.

“As soon as something like that comes in my mind, I start thinking of positive things. Believe it or not, all these vibes and energies exist, so you will attract, what you think. My fans and everybody who are sending me such great responses, they keep me going and motivated. My show ‘Meri Durga’ is on-air in Indonesia and from there, people are messaging me and saying that they are loving the show. I feel lucky to get so much love. Even right now, ‘Happu Ki Ulta Paltan’ is on-air but my scene will come after two weeks, so they are messaging me why are we not seeing you. Their love keeps me going,” she said.

Through her painful yet heartening story, she wants to motivate all those who are going through tough times. She said, “I want to say that there is nothing stronger than you and you can beat anything if you keep yourself mentally strong. I remember there was a time when I was getting injections every day, I was in the hospital for a month, and there came a point when I was like ‘I am done, I can’t do this’. And then I saw my mother and I had never seen her like that, so it was my mom, my family, and my fans that kept me strong at that time.”

“I felt that if I give up then even they will also lose hope. So, I will suggest everyone not to lose hope and be mentally strong, just be confident, say to yourself that you will get better and you will stand on your feet once again,” Ashna signed off.

Rupali Ganguly is elated to perform Hawa Hawai in Anupamaa

Rajan Shahi’s Anupamaa is being appreciated and accepted by the audience. The show has been talk of the town for various reasons, whether it is the perfect casting of the lead Anupamaa by Rupali Ganguly and Vanraj by Sudhanshu Pandey with a stellar supporting cast or the high emotional connect with the audience are glued to the show.
Anupamaa has a lot of song and dance sequences which helps the show to go forward from time to time. Recently one of the cult songs of Hindi films Hawa Hawai from Mr. India has been shot with Rupali Ganguly.

Speaking about the whole experience of shooting Hawa Hawai Rupali says,” There is nobody in this world who can match steps with Sridevi. Thanks to Rajan Shahi who has given me so many opportunities in the show. I can’t thank him enough. Through Anupamaa all of my dreams and wishes are coming true.
I remember I have seen Mr. India as a trial show in Ajanta. It was a full house so all the kids were sitting down and then, later on, I have seen the film at Satyam theatre. In fact, I want my kid to watch Mr. India as his first film. You can’t remove Sridevi from Hawa Hawai. The dance moves of Sridevi were ultimate. In my childhood I have performed so many of Sridevi’s film songs, whether it is Nagina, Chalbaaz or Mr. India – she has been my favourite idol. I am a big fan of her work, I remember when she passed away I cried miserably and also went to give my last respect to her. This performance is a small and humble tribute to Sridevi.” Along with Rupali the rest of the cast Paras Kalnawat, Muskaan Bamne, Aashish K N Mehrotra, Jasveer Kaur also danced in the song. The song will be telecasted tomorrow.

‘अनुपमा’ शो में रुपाली गांगुली ने किया ‘हवा हवाई’ सॉन्ग पर परफॉर्म !

राजन शाही द्वारा प्रोड्यूस किया गया स्टार प्लस का ‘अनुपमा’ शो दर्शकों द्वारा खूब सराहा जा रहा है। यह शो कई दिनों तक अनेक कारणों से चर्चा में रहा, चाहे वह शो की अनुपमा यानि रूपाली गांगुली और वनराज बने सुधांशु पांडे द्वारा निभाए गए प्रमुख किरदार की सही कास्टिंग को लेकर हो या फिर दर्शकों के साथ एक उच्च भावनात्मक जुड़ाव को लेकर हो।

अनुपमा शो में ऐसे कई गाने और डांस सीक्वेंस हैं जो शो को समय-समय पर आगे बढ़ने में मदद करते हैं। हाल ही में मिस्टर इंडिया फिल्म के कल्ट सांग, हवा हवाई गाने पर रूपाली गांगुली के साथ शूट किया गया है। रूपाली ने अपने शो के लिए इस गाने को दोबारा रिक्रिएट किया है।

हवा हवाई के डांस सीक्वेंस की शूटिंग पर बात करते हुए रुपाली गांगुली कहती हैं, “इस दुनिया में ऐसा कोई नहीं है जो श्रीदेवी के साथ कदम मिला सके। राजन शाही का शुक्रिया, जिन्होंने मुझे शो में ऐसे कई मौके दिए। मैं उनका जितना धन्यवाद करूँ वह कम है। अनुपमा के माध्यम से मेरे सभी सपने और इच्छाएं पूरी हो रही हैं। मुझे याद है कि मैंने मिस्टर इंडिया को अजंता में एक ट्रायल शो के रूप में देखा है। यह पूरी तरह हाउस फूल था इसलिए सभी बच्चे नीचे बैठे थे और फिर बाद में मैंने सत्यम थिएटर में फिल्म देखी। वास्तव में मैं चाहती हूँ कि मेरा बच्चा मिस्टर इंडिया को अपनी पहली फिल्म के रूप में देखे। आप श्रीदेवी को हवा हवाई से तो कत्तई नहीं निकाल सकते। श्रीदेवी के डांस मूव्स अल्टीमेट थे। मैंने बचपन में श्रीदेवी के कई फिल्मी गानों पर परफॉर्म किया है, चाहे वह नगीना हो, चालबाज़ या मिस्टर इंडिया हो वह मेरी पसंदीदा आइडियल रही हैं। मैं उनके काम की बहुत बड़ी फैन हूं। यह प्रदर्शन श्रीदेवी को एक छोटी और विनम्र श्रद्धांजलि है।”

रूपाली के साथ बाकी कलाकार पारस कलनावत, मुस्कान बामने, आशीष के एन मेहरोत्रा, जसवीर कौर ने भी मेरे साथ इस गाने में डांस किया है। इस गाने को कल के एपिसोड में टेलीकास्ट किया जाएगा।
