Yesha Rughani from Hero Gayab Mode On

Working during a pandemic is no easy feat, but actor Yesha Rughani, who was last seen in Muskaan, says that all precautions are being taken on the sets of her brand her show Hero Gayab Mode On. Talking about it, she says, “I think new normal has become a lifestyle now. Whether I am going for work or something else, I have to follow precautions. Obviously, you are scared. But on the set, we take many precautions, medical people are there, they check us every day. The makeup and hair stylists are wearing their kits. So, I think overall it’s a secure working environment. I hope everybody stays well and fit.”

The actor is back on the sets after almost a year and is loving it. “We wrapped up Muskaan’s shoot in December last year and this show is launching December. We have started shooting from November so I think almost a year. It just feels too good to be back and I think I have been missing being onscreen. I missed shooting and I am loving the feeling of getting on the makeup chair, the entire routine, listening to action, cut, roll each and every minute detail of shoot life. It’s fabulous to be back,” she says.

In fact, she’s got a lot of appreciation for her look too. “I rejuvenated myself during this break. I got into this healing thing where I was on a strict detox and my skin healed, my hair, my body healed. I was in my comfort zone and used to wake up on time and follow a proper routine, even though there was a lockdown. I had ample time in the lockdown to take care of myself. I am fresh as a flower now and all set to rock again. For the new look, I am getting really good reviews because people are seeing me like this onscreen for the very first time. My first two roles were very different. So, seeing me in a totally different avatar with short hair is exciting. I have really lost weight, there is a different kind of look and feel to the role. I am getting a very good reaction and I am loving it,” she says.

Meanwhile, Yesha started a balloon business too during the lockdown and plans on balancing both her acting and business venture. “Lockdown has, of course, changed our lives in many ways from being able to value things to be grateful to life, self-healing and taking care of yourself, self-discipline. I ventured into a new business. I love to be very busy so I think it wouldn’t be a problem to manage both the things. I have my sister also who is taking care of this business, apart from me. I think it works for us. I also carry my laptop and everything to shoot so that if I get some time, I make some designs and send them across. I think it’s going to be fun to manage both,” she says.

Rina Charaniya

From “Dus bahaane 2.0” to “Dilbar”, and “Aankh maarey”, remakes have made its way back to the industry, and while some love to dance to the jazzed up beats, some are still a fan of the old songs. And it’s not just the audience, but even the singers have a divided opinion on this. “Phir mulaqaat”, and “Judaa” singer Rina Charaniya, who is popularly known as Rii, accepts that the remakes are made considering the current audience taste, but reveals that she will not do a remake with twisted lyrics just to look cool. She also revealed that if ever she sings a remake, she will try to maintain the beauty of the original song.

“I have no problems in doing a remake, but I strongly feel that you can never make a song better than the original. If I ever make a remake then I will first see that we are matching with the original on some level and not changing it entirely. Secondly, I will not put any nasty lyrics in it, because of late people have started twisting it to match the taste of the audience. So if that’s being done, then I will not do it because I don’t want to spoil a song or the beauty of it. Those old songs were written by some great writers and lyricists, so I will not twist the lyrics and sing them just to look cool,” she said.  When asked what she feels about so many remakes being made these days, she said that it’s because it gives a good business.

 “When you lack original content, you make a remake. If a song is already famous and is loved by the masses, then I don’t think changing the music or the lyrics here and there can make it better. Original will always be the original, and you can never make a better version of it. But labels have the rights for it and they do it, and there is one section of the audience that happily accepts it too. Some people enjoy it, and to cater to that audience remakes are made. And it also results in good business,” Rii said.  

The singer also asserted that remakes also give a guarantee of a sure-shot success, and said, “Today’s generation is very fast, they don’t have time for anything. And our brain also works like that. If you see today, only 20-30 percent of the people love 90s music, else everyone wants to hear fast-paced songs. So people play with your brains through music.”

“On top of that, I feel that remakes are made because you already have a famous song, it’s a super hit in the market, and then you want a song which you know will be a sure shot success. You are confident that even with a little twist people are going to like it, if not love it, so they make a remake. And it gives them good business. So it’s less about art now and more about business, and making money,” Rii concluded.
