valentine day marketing
If you actually think about it, Valentine’s Day has almost lost it’s seen the way it is being used by marketing companies as a tool to make money. As gift and cake shops throng with young lovers, queuing up to buy cakes, greeting cards and gifts for each other, brands and companies make the day even more obvious. Here is what our TV stars feel about the blatant commercialization of the day that was originally dedicated to celebrating love!
 
Mohammad Nazim: Valentine’s Day has become a marketing gimmick with people selling toys, cards and chocolates, etc., in the name of love. It’s absolutely fine to celebrate the day, but it should not become an obsession. Having said that, it can’t be denied that girls like to be pampered by their boyfriends!
 
Ssharad Malhotra: Valentine’s Day has become a fad. Love is not something which needs to be flaunted. It’s a personal emotion. On the contrary, Valentine’s Day is more of an aggressive activity, which marketing companies capitalise on. People whom you love should know that you love them without needing a specific day to express it.
 
Shashank Vyas: To celebrate the day or not is subjective. Valentine’s Day has nothing to do with our Indian culture. One can celebrate it however one wants to; showering your beloved with expensive or inexpensive yet thoughtful gifts. But on the whole, it’s a beautiful and fun-filled day when one expresses his love for his bae and there is nothing with it.
 
Tarun Khurana:  I am an expressive person. However, I don’t believe in Valentine’s Day as it’s nothing but a marketing gimmick by companies to make extra bucks. If you love someone, you need not buy expensive cards, soft toys or other gifts, instead just a flower with ‘I love you’ message would be more than enough to express your feelings.
Adaa Khan: If you love someone, you don’t need a day to express it. You can make the person feel special on any day, turning it memorable for life. Love is not a candy-floss film; it is a matter of the heart. True love should be unconditional and forever.
 
Arjun Bijlani: Marketing geniuses will use this day as a tool to make more money. It’s perfectly fine for people to buy gifts for their loved ones. I am fine with celebrating Valentine’s Day. But I would want people to celebrate it whenever they deem fit.

Ooh la la, check out Shashank Vyas’ drool-worthy pics

Shashank Vyas has made fans go gaga over him since the day he stepped in the industry. He made his acting debut with social drama “Balika Vadhu” and will soon be seen in Bollywood film “Laila Manju”.

The actor has a huge following on social media and he keeps them engaged with his pics. Speaking of pics, have you checked out Shashank’s new pics yet. The handsome actor looks quite hunky in the pics and will definitely make you go ooh la la.

It’s commendable how he can so easily rock a clean shaven look and even a beard and still look so hot. And did I forget to mention those pics with his chiselled body. Be it a casual tee and jeans or a formal attire, he looks lit in all of them.

And if you thought Shashank is just a good looking guy, think again. He can easily bowl you over with his poetry. In fact, he has so far written three poems, one on the plight of migrant labourers, another a romantic tragedy and one a tribute to late actor Sushant Singh Rajput.

After being the popular face of Cadbury ad campaign and many other brands, the young actor is all set to be part of another film in Bollywood.

The film is a dark comedy and features actors like Ranvir Shorey, Rajat Kapoor, Kalki Koechlin and Manoj Pahwa in important roles.

Abhishek said, “I play the role of Vivaan, a child who is good at technical issues and helps the characters in the film decompose a dead body with his formulas. The entire film revolves around a dead body. It was a learning experience working with established and talented actors like Rajat sir, Ranvir Sir and many other actors in the film. I thank my lucky stars that after working with Vidya Balan in Tumhari Sulu, I got this opportunity.”

While Abhishek is a good student, he has been working for many years now, and acted in many ads, short films and feature films.

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।
