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.

” I want to do it just like Deepika”, model Sasha Merchant
Over the years, Deepika Padukone has given Bollywood some of the most memorable performances and serves as an inspiration to many young girls be it for her fashion or her spectacular work. Aseem Merchant’s daughter Sasha Merchant too looks up to the superstar for making it big in the industry.
Speaking about how Sasha would like her Bollywood path to look like she said,”If I want to step into Bollywood, I want to do it just like Deepika. I love her and she is my absolute favourite.”
“I feel like right from modelling to films, the kind of work she has done is simply amazing, so if I do it, I want to do it just like her”, says Sasha.
Deepika was the one to break the stereotype that models cannot act. She was not just a successful model but also worked immensely hard on her acting skills over the years and today is the number one actress we have setting an example for the many other models who dream of stepping into Bollywood.
Deepika may have been criticised for her acting in her early days post the massive debut she got with Om Shaanti Om but she used it positively, which is extremely inspiring to aspirants and young girls who want to be like her. She stood by example that hard work and dedication can help you achieve anything you desire to.
Sasha has just stepped into the fashion scene becoming a quick favourite for major brands and designers and is already turning heads in the fashion industry.
Director David Dhawan shares his thought behind bringing the hit of 90’s ‘Coolie No. 1’ back again with a twist!
Coolie No. 1 has made it to the cult classic films of the 90’s that one could re-watch numerous times for a killer on-screen pair and songs which still get our feet tapping. The film has been revamped with a modern day twist and director David Dhawan shares his thought and experience behind re-making the film.
“It’s my film that I made 25 years ago and the thought of a re-make had never come. What happened is I had to do something with Varun, and I was thinking what to do, what to do.”
David further adds, “When I asked Varun, if he liked this film, he saw it and didn’t answer. He was later getting a little convinced, as it was a very difficult film for him because we have one of the best actor playing his role, and there’s no comparison. At the same time, Vashu ji said let’s do this film, it’s a damn good film. That was the first film that Vashu and I had done. So that’s how the idea came.”
Talking about the script, the director says, “When I started to work on the film/ script, I had to redo everything. If that wouldn’t have been ok I am not saying yes.”
Th makers have also released peppy tracks back to back, first Teri Bhabhi followed by Husn Hai Suhana which have made it to everyone’s party playlists once again.
Adding onto the Christmas cheer, Amazon Prime Video brings the World Premiere of David Dhawan’s 45th film Coolie No. 1. Directed by David Dhawan, the Bollywood romantic comedy is produced by Vashu Bhagnani, Jackky Bhagnani & Deepshikha Deshmukh.
