Salman Khan’s rakhi sister Shweta Rohira is known for her paintings, ingenious writing and working as a community worker with ‘Selfie With Police’ and her association with beauty and health makes her totally exceptional in her own intelligence of fine art. She has really come a long way and achieved it effectively in her grand inventive profession. Little known is that she is in love with pets as well.
Life is incomplete with pets, and Shweta Rohira has taken the adage to heart. The pretty young artist is blessed with two dogs, huge fish tank, nine white mice and two hamsters and she still has room for more! Talking about her love for pets, Shweta says, “I never had pets in childhood though I was very keen to have them. So I’m making up now,” she says counting them off, “My dogs, Dollar and Bhagheera, are my two lovely kids while I have a huge fish tank which has lots of colourful fishes. Then, my white mice couple Ratatouille and Stuart and there with their seven children. I am also blessed with my hamsters, Ki and Ka. And that’s not all! I would love to have more pets,” she shares excitedly.
Shweta says that pets own a special place in her heart and keep her upbeat. She shares, “Once, when I was hospitalised, Dollar had given up eating. Back from the hospital, I was on bed rest for few days. That time, Dollar did not leave my bedside and it would be very tough to send him for his daily walks. Even when I would be asleep, he would be just staring at me and there used to be so much sadness in his eyes as if he too was experiencing my pain. He was my constant companion. He made me feel so special, I can’t even express it.”
Expectedly, with so many pets, there’s never a dull moment in the Rohira household. She says, “As soon as I enter my house, Bhagheera gets a sudden sugar rush and he starts running in the whole house. He runs so fast that many a time he slips!” Another special antic Shweta shares is that Dollar has a very special habit for eating. “Before eating his food, he wants me to eat first and then only he eats. Also, he does not eat in his bowl though he drinks water in any bowl. He needs a plate identical to what I use. If I change my crockery, one plate and a bowl is kept separated for him,” she laughs.
Talking more about her sweet, eccentric dogs, Shweta says, “My morning cup of coffee is with Dollar and Bhagheera. I also play with them in the morning. We have our breakfast together. At night, Bhagheera sleeps with me, while Dollar waits till I sleep after which he goes to bed.” Shweta wants to go out on a vacation with her dogs, but says that since Dollar has motion sickness, she cannot. “I would love to go for vacation with them but Dollar has motion sickness and Bhagheera enjoys running in the garden more than travelling. But, he enjoys his trips to the swimming pool,” she adds.
Talking about a special trait of pets, Shweta reveals, “I feel that whenever there is any stress or tension, we should be careful and not to talk near them as they tend to take too soon at their heart. It is also very important that when we scold them to bring in discipline, we should show our affection and care. Communication is very important; we should spend quality time by talking to them and if required explain them. When we chat with them, they reply back with expressions and actions. I believe that we should spend quality time with them and also learn to understand their silence,” concludes the artist.
Well Shweta, it seems you have borrowed some good habits from your rakhi-brother Salman Khan who is a great dog lover himself!
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.
Anupamaa welcomes Kinjal in the Shah home, gives lessons on a happy married life
Anupamaa in Rajan Shahi’s show of the same name had the dream of welcoming her daughter-in-law with a lot of love and warmth. And though her elder son, Paritosh, married Kinjal without the permission of their families, Anupamaa made sure she welcomes the newly-wedded couple by following all the rituals and a lot of love.
Firstly, when Rakhi was going to slap Kinjal for taking this step, Anupamaa stopped her saying that she cannot hurt her daughter-in-law and welcomed them home by doing aarti. Both Baa and Vanraj were quite upset with the kids, and said that they have given an opportunity to Rakhi Dave to seek revenge from them. When Paritosh said that if they have so much problem with them, then they will go somewhere else, Anupamaa stopped them and said that it’s their home and they will stay here.
Anupamaa is over the moon that she has become a mother-in-law now and tells Paritosh and Kinjal that they need to seek blessings from everyone including Kinjal’s mom and father. She also told them that the secret to a happy married life is letting go of unnecessary arguments. She also welcomed Kinjal in the kitchen and taught her the daily rituals that she follows. She also asked her to serve everyone halwa as part of a ritual of her first day in the kitchen. But Baa who is upset with how Rakhi created a scene outside their house said that nothing can help her overcome the bitterness given by her mother.
In the upcoming episode, the audience will see that Anupamaa asks Kinjal to apologise to Baa and also takes her to meet her mother Rakhi. But will Rakhi accept Kinjal’s apology? What will be her next move as she has promised to destroy the Shah family.
Produced by Rajan Shahi and his mother Deepa Shahi, “Anupamaa” features Rupali Ganguly, Sudhanshu Pandey, Madalsa Sharma, Alpana Buch, Arvind Vaidya, Shekhar Shukla, Paras Kalnawat, Muskan Bamne, Tassnim Sheikh, Aashish Mehrotra, Nidhi Shah, and Anagha Bhosale. It airs on Star Plus.
” 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.
The film also stars Paresh Rawal, Rajpal Yadav, Javed Jaffrey and Johnny Lever. Prime members in India and across 200 countries and territories can stream the world premiere of Coolie No.1 starting December 25 exclusively on Amazon Prime Video.
