TV producers and actors unite for a noble cause!

On the 22nd of May 2019, Chayn Kohli  (daughter of Benaifer and Sanjay Kohli) of Grade 10, organized an event and invited the Pulwama attack widows from Maharashtra to her home. “We could have catered to them at a restaurant or banquet hall as well but the intention was to make them feel welcome, both in our heart and our home. Their family is incomplete to ensure that our families stay complete,” shared a thankful Chayn. 
 
Many dignitaries including notable actors and major producers in the TV industry graced the occasion and joined the Kohli family in offering their condolences, prayers and respect to the widows, children and other family members of the martyrs. Chayn added, “This event is not the end of what we plan to do. In fact, these families have been adopted by some of our families, hence we will continue planning events to keep them involved and appreciated.”
 
The intention was not just to extend their condolences but also to make the family members of the martyrs feel that they are an integral part of our life and our society. It was such an honour and privilege to be in their presence and hear their first-hand experiences of dealing with loss and courageously braving their loss.  
 
Modest acknowledgements were made to encourage the families to take forward and build their life with honour, peace dignity and success. Chayn also raised funds to support these families but she refrained from mentioning the acknowledgements as it is “minuscule compared to their noble sacrifice”, as she put it. The families of the soldiers are as important as the soldiers themselves as they support the solider while he is at war, praying for his well being and constantly worrying about their safety. The loss they have suffered is something we can not even relate to and hence we can only try to make them smile, stand by them to help reduce the pain slowly over time. 
 
It was an extremely successful event as others from the industry joined to promote the cause as well and help influence people to join this cause too by making generous contributions. Chayn concluded with the comment, “It was extremely honourable to get to meet these families and learn as much as I have from them. If we all make even the slightest change in our own way as humans, we all would lead a better life as a country.”
Actors who turned up included Shubhangi Atre, Rohitashv Gour, Hiba Nawab, Rishina Kandhari, Charul Malik and Mrunal Jain and producer B.P. Singh. Cheques and gifts to their children collected were handed over to the families by the actors and producers collectively. Shubhangi Atre and Rohitashv Gour play Angoori Bhabi and Manmohan Tiwari was a delight when they recited a poem along with other folks. Well, we must say these folks did their bit for the cause, what about you?

Jab Miya Biwi Razi Toh Kya Karega Kazi? This is exactly what Elaichi and Pancham are up to! Sanjay Kohli and Binaifer S Kohli’s ‘Jijaji Chhat Per Hain’ on Sony SAB will be finally revealing their biggest plot twist. Elaichi and Pancham who have gone to great lengths to be together and hide their love affair from Murari are finally making their dream come true. The viewers must brace themselves for the upcoming rollercoaster of events on Jijaji Chhat Per Hain.

Elaichi (Hiba Nawab), out of respect for her father agrees to marry, Pushpendra, whose alliance her family receives. Pancham (Nikhil Khurana) loses all hope until he gets together with Pintoo and Elaichi to tell Nani the truth about their love for each other. Nani supports the couple whole-heartedly to the extent that she advises them to run away and get married, Elaichi and Pancham are taken aback with such a bold suggestion from Nani. Elaichi is now torn between her love and respect for her father.

But, will Murari ever accept their marriage?

Fans have been waiting for just this moment of seeing the dynamic lead couple Elaichi and Pancham get married. Since the beginning of the story in the show, even though Elaichi was aware of Pancham’s bachelor status she acted uninformed about it while he continued playing a married man. Through the year, mischievous that Elaichi is, she kept on troubling and nudging Pancham by putting him in hilarious situations. Having a soft spot for him, she would also rescue him out of these situations.

Eventually, when Pancham’s unmarried status was out in front of Elaichi, they could express their true feelings and confess their love for each other. Now, the time has arrived for their happily ever after, but with too many hurdles at home and with their relationship being a big secret, they have decided to get secretly married!

Nikhil Khurana, essaying the role of Pancham said, “It is finally happening, Elaichi and Pancham are getting married, but secretly! They have been dreaming of this moment for a long time and it will finally come true. But the real question is; how will Murari react to this? And how will Pancham and Elaichi convince him? I would like to take this moment to let our audience know that we are so grateful for the support and love they have given to the show.”

Hiba Nawab, essaying the role of Elaichi said, “Elaichi’s life is about to change. She is so close to making her dream, to marry Pancham, true. It is a challenging moment for Elaichi as she does not want to upset her father, so they decide to keep the wedding a secret. It will be exciting for the viewers to witness the couple’s efforts to get Murari’s approval.”

Romit Raj Prasher is back on TV with Kulfi Kumar Bajewala

Published

Actor Romit Raj Prasher is back on the screen after four years. The actor has been working on himself during this time and also has been giving time to his daughter. “In the long break, I studied Cinema, did acting workshops with actors and directors, kept myself busy watching world cinema and regional cinema. Also, I have been a stay-at-home dad as I have a daughter,” he says, adding, “I have been learning Marathi language and learning how to play the piano.”

Talking about his role in the show, he says, “I am playing the parallel lead, a new dashing smart dean of a school. He has his shades and is a very challenging character.”

The actor says that the TV show needs to come up with better content. “I have been saying no to mythological shows for the longest time and also shows which have stupid stories. I am not surprised why people are watching web series and shows on apps because most of the TV shows have lost their plots and they usually copy from film scripts,” he says.

The actor says that it’s a real struggle to find good work on TV today. “Unfortunately, there is not enough freedom given to writers and creative people on TV. The channel wants to play safe, be dependent on the research team and every show mostly looks the same. Also, there are many actors in the TV business and now writers want to act ad producers want to act….everyone wants to act, so for good actors, there are very few opportunities left,” he says.

Who says losing weight is all about working out in the gym. Actor Jason Shah, who has lost a ton of weight recently, and has been maintaining himself by just eating right. “I have actually lost almost 14 kilos on the sets of Jhansi Ki Rani due to extreme heat and a lot of perspiration,” says Jason, who plays the role of Captain Ross in the show.

He adds, “I wish I still had all that muscle, but there’s not much that I can do. I stopped gymming at the start of the show because I travelled quite far, about 3 hours a day. And after that its 12-14 hrs of the shoot, there’s not a lot of time to the gym and because of the amount of perspiration, my body is quite tired at the end of it. I am just waiting for the show to end and I am going to build back up, it doesn’t take any too long, give me two months and I will be good again.”

However, the actor has been eating right and has cut down on his sugar intake. “My parents always taught me that sugar rots your teeth and that it’s a killer and a thief. So keeping that in mind, ever since I was young, I have always tried to avoid it. Of course, I get tempted. It’s not like I don’t eat ice creams and desserts. I do, I spread out and do not eat these on a regular basis. You have got to watch yourself because, in India, they put sugar in almost everything that you eat,” he says.

He adds, “I am not going to the gym and that’s why I am lean. I have been maintaining myself with just a good diet, healthy food, healthy snacks throughout the day- oats, salads, fruits, eggs, chicken. That’s pretty much how I do it.”
