Hosted by Kamal Haasan, the season’s last eviction was Adjeeth. In one of the earlier episodes, we see Shivani’s mother giving her a earful for not concentrating on her game strategy and instead constantly following a rather uninterested Balaji everywhere he goes “in the name of love”. Aari had even stood up for Shivani for Balaji’s ignorance towards her.

Balaji has not been a people favourite for a while now. In fact, he was seen threatening Aari that he would continue the tiff even outside the reality show to which Kamal warned him in his style. Aari has been one of an audience favourite and has been receiving a lot of thumbs up on social media too.

As of now, Mirchi Suchi who had entered on wild card and was evicted sooner has now posted on social media that she will be re-entering the Bigg Boss house once again. Although we are not sure of the motive behind the same, Suchi has conducted a poll asking her fans on what is Balaji’s motive with Shivani.

 

 

What do you think? Is Balaji playing a fair game and is his “love” for Shivani true?

Selvaraghavan’s recent direction was NGK starring Suriya, Rakul Preet Singh and Sai Pallavi in the lead role. The film was most anticipated but fell flat due to its weak narrative.

We see Malavika Mohanan promoting out and about in Mumbai meanwhile those in Chennai have been doing the same on social media. Master will not have an official trailer release and instead two new promos from the film has been doing the rounds and winning hearts.

Vijay Sethupathi who plays Bhavani the antagonist of the film, has revealed that his mother was eager to meet Thalapathy Vijay. The actor then took her to the shooting spot and had her meet the Nanban actor. They infact even clicked a picture together.

The first question Sethupathi’s mother asked Vijay was whether or not the former is working and behaving well on sets. To this, Vijay went on praising Sethupathi which made the mother extremely happy. Vijay Sethupathi said he thanked Vijay for the nice gesture.

It was apparently only after that that the picture of Sethupathi kissing Vijay went viral on social media.

The duo’s film Master has Anirudh Ravichander compose music and has Malavika Mohanan, Andrea Jeremiah, Gouri Kishan, Shanthnu Bhagyaraj and Arjun Das playing pivotal roles. The film is slated for a Pongal theatrical release and will clash with Simbu’s most anticipated Eashwaran  starring Nidhi Aggarwal as the female lead.

During a recent media interaction, the Police claimed that they have gathered enough evidence to issue a public arrest. Reports now suggest that the Police have obtained an audio evidence against Hemanth.

Recently, another twist has come to this crime story.  The suicide of VJ Chitra was transferred to the Central Crime Branch and they have now found out that he is a major part of a medical seat scam. According to reports, Hemnath had collected an amount of Rs. 1.05 crores rupees, while giving assurances to procure medical seats, with a complaint subsequently being filed by parents of students at the J.J. Nagar police station in Chennai in 2015.

Hemanth has now been taken into custody from Puzhal jail yet again for further interrogation on fradulance. A result on the same is awaited.

According to police sources, a conversation between VJ Chitra and her father-in-law was found in her phone. In the audio, Chitra had said that Hemanth repeatedly objected to her playing intimate scenes with her co-artists of TV series Pandian Stores. It was also revealed that heated arguments often arose between the couple. She shared an incident where Hemanth made her promise in public that she would not participate in reality shows that may have her on-screen pair from the series as her co-contestant.

Apparently, all these incidents happened before the couple registered their marriage. Post their marriage, Chitra was reportedly abused by Hemanth and he accused her of having illicit affairs, reports DT Next.

The Police have also stated that Hemanth had deleted all the images, audio recordings and several other evidence from Chitra’s phone beforehand. The investigative team has further stated that Hemanth reportedly had an affair and are inquiring further regarding the same.

On the work front, Chitra is known for her performance in serials like Saravanan Meenatchi, Velunachi, Darling Darling, Mannan Magal and Chinna Papa Periya Papa, to name a few. As a dancer, Chithra took part as one of the contestants of the show Jodi Fun Unlimited also.

No wonder 2020 was a good year for OTT platforms! Here is our trusty guide to the best series of the year so you can check if you have missed out on something that is truly binge-worthy!

The Crown season 4  

The Crown S4. Picture shows: Princess Diana (EMMA CORRIN)

The Crown revolves around the journey and life of Queen Elizabeth 2 from when she takes over the throne post her father’s death. Though the series was already three seasons old the 4th season that premiered this year was a huge hit surpassing its predecessors. The series went viral and trended this year after the addition of a chapter on iconic Princess Diana. 

The historical drama written by Peter Morgan takes us into the life and happenings of the royal family while also tracing Britain’s changing political environment.  

Better Call Saul Season 5

A masterclass at storytelling Better Call Saul is a prequel to the hit series Breaking Bad. The series traces the fascinating journey of Jimmy/Saul with a mix of new and a few familiar characters. Though everyone who watched Breaking Bad knows what happens to jimmy and how the series is going to end the season 5 that premiered this year featured the big leap in Jimmy’s path where he becomes Saul, leaving viewers on the edge awaiting the final season anxiously.

Queen’s Gambit 

How can one binge watch a game of chess? Set during the Cold War era, orphaned chess prodigy Beth Harmon struggles with addiction in a quest to become the greatest chess player in the world. The Queen’s Gambit manages to glam up the infamously dull game of Chess. The series is more than just the game and the championships. It deals with mental health, relationships, power, lust, addiction, adulthood, societal norms and so much more. While a series revolving around prodigies and excellence is not unique the eccentric character played by Anya Taylor-Joy, the period it is set in, and the game of life makes the Queen’s Gambit a thrilling watch. 

Schitt’s Creek Season 6

The year’s most heart-warming, fun and wittily hilarious series that set a record by bagging seven primetime awards and nine Emmys in all Schitt’s Creek is a must-watch Canadian Series. The plot of the series revolves around a millionaire family that loses all their wealth and property but a town they bought as a joke where they move to live. The final season brought a satisfying; the unexpected end will leave one feeling heavy hearted and hopeful at the same time. 

Emily In Paris 

EMILY IN PARIS (L to R) LILY COLLINS as EMILY in episode 103 of EMILY IN PARIS. Cr. COURTESY OF NETFLIX © 2020

A young American woman moves to a marketing firm in Paris to provide them with an American perspective on things. The year’s kinkiest show that garnered hate from the fashion industry and fascination from the rest, Emily in Paris is a compelling watch. Whether you want to crib your way through it complaining about the unrealistic plot, tacky wardrobe choices, overhyped dialogues, and the very exasperating characters or watch it as an escape from reality is your choice!

Dark Season 3 

The German Netflix twisty time-travel drama returns for a third and final season. This season centers on the mysteries and entwined histories of four local families bridging multiple generations. The show gained popularity for its heavy, brain-bending, twisty plot. The final season which was again full of bootstrap paradox left many just as confused as ever. Watching, re-watching and finally googling decoding theories that explained the inconclusive end.  

Sex education season 2

1st May Ep 2-17.dng

High school student Otis grows up in quite a unique home and environment where sex is a tediously open conversation on a daily day and he is surrounded by manuals, videos, and posters of lovemaking. Living with his mom jean who is a sex therapist makes Otis quite an expert in the sex-ed course though he does not have any personal experience. The socially awkward boy goes on to share his knowledge with those who require it. In season two of sophomore year, there is much more going on. Each topic in the season is treated with so much care that beyond humor it is quite informative and is a must-watch for young adults. 

The umbrella academy

On one day in 1989, 43 infants are inexplicably born to random, unconnected women who showed no signs of pregnancy the day before. Seven are adopted by billionaire industrialist Sir Reginald Hargreeves, who creates the Umbrella Academy and prepares his “children” to save the world.

Honorable mentions

Upload: A series that takes you behind an AI afterlife. Science, technology, and nature intertwine. 

The Good Place: What happens if a bad person goes to a good place. Can heavens have glitches? 

Little fires everywhere: The Hulu series starring Reese Witherspoon and Kerry Washington is a piercing tale of motherhood.

Rakshit Shetty’s fans however did not take this well. While one said, “The Kannada industry gave you all this publicity but you seemed to have forgotten it.” Meanwhile, another commented, “Look at how Rakshit Shetty never tagged you in his posts. You need a star like him for publicity.”

Seems quite unfair, don’t you think?

Post the breakup in 2018, Rashmika had also taken it to social media to talk about her relationship after she was mercilessly trolled by the actor’s fans for her private decisions. She stated, “Sorry I’ve been silent for so long..but I’ve been watching a lot of stories, articles, comments, and trolls about me..it has been disturbing me on how I was being portrayed and everything blew out of proportion and yes I definitely don’t blame you guys for it..because that’s what you’d believe and I am not here to justify anything or anyone..just want to tell you guys that Rakshit, me or anyone in the industry should not go through this. And also need to add that just as how every coin has two sides, so does every story. Please let us who work in our industry, work with a little peace of mind. That’s my two cents, let me conclude by saying I will CONTINUE DOING KANNADA FILMS… I AM HERE TO STAY.. be it any language, any industry, I’ll give my best shot.. thank you.”

The film was most anticipated but fell flat due to its weak narrative. Selvaraghavan himself has a lot of anticipation for the kind of peculiar stories he chooses to direct. However, his combination with Dhanush is the most loved. Thulluvadho Ilamai, Kadhal Kondein, Pudhupettai, and Mayakkam Enna were critically acclaimed.

As the fifth film, it has been confirmed that Selvaraghavan is all set to direct Dhanush in yet another film. Selvaraghavan made the announcement earlier that it would be Pudhupettai 2. “People have been asking me about my next film after NGK. I’m making this announcement just for you. I am saying this just for my fans. I am going to team up with Dhanush for my next film. We were discussing what to do next and decided to make Pudhupettai 2,” said the director.

However, there was no word from Dhanush’s side regarding the same. Now, Dhanush has also shared the news on Twitter. “Selvaraghavan + yuvan + aravind krishna… well well … right where I started. Very happy to join my maker, my creator and the only reason I’m here today my brother @selvaraghavan again. I hope this time at least I impress him,” wrote Dhanush.

The same team of music director and cinematographer are onboard. The rest of the cast are soon to be revealed.

The film will be produced by Kalaipuli S. Dhanu of V Creations who is also producing Dhanush’s Karnan directed by Mari Selvaraj.

Apart from these films, Dhanush also has The Gray Man and Atrangi Re in Hollywood and Bollywood respectively.

Thu, 24 Dec 2020 20:29:35 +0000 https://jfwonline.com/article/meet-harsha-from-bengaluru-a-woman-who-utilised-her-maternity-break-to-sell-over-1-million-homemade-meals/ Meet Harsha From Bengaluru: A Woman Who Utilised Her Maternity Break To Sell Over 1 Million Homemade Meals! https://jfwonline.com/article/meet-harsha-from-bengaluru-a-woman-who-utilised-her-maternity-break-to-sell-over-1-million-homemade-meals/ The amount of time any woman requires to adjust to new circumstances of having a baby is simply infinite. A six-month maternity leave could probably be nothing compared to the busy schedules she needs to be running after the sabbatical balancing work and home. No matter how much she tires, a mother simply never gives up. Especially when the mother is an achiever she will only innovate.

One such new mom in town is Harsha Thachery. Harsha’s idea is to provide all the people who crave for home-food with home-cooked meals. The worst part about living away from home is definitely missing Namma Veettu Sapadu (our home food) and Harsha wanted to fulfill that dream. Harsha was from Kerala but lives with her husband in Bengaluru.

 

 

However, this idea started off as a pregnancy craving, says Harsha to The Better India. “It was during my pregnancy that I started to become more conscious of the food I eat. I wanted healthy food for my baby and me. At the time, I had a craving for tasty yet healthy meals. I searched a lot of menus for a really good, healthy meal but I couldn’t find even one. That is when I saw a market for healthy homemade food,” states Harsha.

It was her husband Jugal who persuaded her to begin a service to cater home-cooked meals but not just to pregnant women craving for good food but to anyone who misses their home’s food.

 

 

In the year 2014, during her maternity break, Harsha began a startup and named it Masala Box. “I looked up many names for brands and ended up choosing this one because it reminded me of my grandmother. She had what was called a ‘masala box’ — something that had often caught my eye when I was growing up. I remember it very distinctly,” says Harsha.

It has been six years and today Harsha has connected to several cooks in Kochi and Bengaluru and her startup has distributed over 1 million home-cooked meals provided opportunities to not just the consumers to the thriving home-cooks too.

 

 

As the first step, the former chartered accountant took a list of 100 home chefs in Kochi and after testing samples of their food, 20 chefs were hired. Soon, with the help of her husband, she created the website for Masala Box and it wasn’t long before the orders began to trickle in.

95% of the cooks at Masala Box and Harsha is mighty proud of providing them with a medium. “We are open to hiring any gender but we currently have more women chefs, who are also homemakers, on staff. These chefs pack the food themselves to allow ownership of the way the food is presented,” she adds.

Meals differ everyday and till date these home-chefs have served 500 different menus and dishes that are fresh and home-cooked. Harsha says that even though Masala Box offers a range of dishes, most of the orders received are for Biryani.

 

 

Harsha keeps in mind the physical and mental well-being of her freelance employees. She does not allow the cooks to prepare meals for more that three days a week. She believes that too much effort takes away the joy of their passion.

Due to the Pandemic, operations of the Masala Box in Kochi have been stopped, their Bengaluru operations still deliver over 1,500 home-cooked meals a day.

Masala Box distributes both South Indian and North Indian meals. The founder claims that both non-vegetarian and vegetarian dishes are made using “top quality” ingredients, which are prepared using regional recipes by the home chefs.

We hope Masala Box soon expands to Chennai and Hyderabad as well for us to taste the magic!

Alia had in her earlier interviews talked about having a crush on the Barfi actor but he was then dating Katrina Kaif.

However, the couple eventually found love in one another and have been dating for almost two years. It was on Karan Johar’s Koffee With Karan show that Alia silently confirmed her relationship with the actor. There was however no statement from Ranbir’s side.

Despite all the family get togethers and vacations, the actor maintained a long silence until recently in an interiew with Rajeev Masand when he finally admitted to Alia being his girlfriend and talked about his wedding which is soon to happen.

During the interview, he stated, “Well, I think it (the wedding) would have already been sealed had the pandemic not hit our lives. But I don’t want to jinx it by saying anything. I am going to tick mark that goal very soon in my life.”

Apart from his wedding plans, Ranbir Kapoor opened up about how he spent the lockdown, while adding that Alia Bhatt is an overachiever. “You know my girlfriend Alia (Bhatt) is an overachiever. She probably took every online class there is — from guitar to screenwriting. And I always feel like an underachiever next to her.”

Well, wedding bells are expected soon at the Kapoor-Bhatt household for sure!

On the professional front, Ranbir has Brahmastra alongside Alia Bhatt and Amitabh Bachchan. He also has Shamshera alongside Sanjay Dutt and Vaani Kapoor produced by Aditya Chopra.

You may only think that the couple is actually staying together but are unfortunately not and team Annathae had given Nayan a strict instruction not to.

Off-late, Aishwarya Dhanush has been quite active on social media but the Maari actor rarely uses verified account. After a very long time, the actor has posted something and that too a family picture. This has left his fans excited and happy. But, what attracted fans more was that adorable caption of his. “When your first born wears your tshirt and argues it’s his ❤ #Yathra #Linga,” he wrote.

When your first born wears your tshirt and argues it’s his ❤ #Yathra #Linga

A post shared by Dhanush (@dhanushkraja) on

It is definitely a shocker that these two lovebirds actually have an arranged marriage. Aishwarya was actually Dhanush’s sister’s friend and they had cordially met through her a couple of times and that’s it. BUt, the media had already speculated that the two were in love and that they might get married soon. Dhanush, during various interviews rubbished these rumours. However, Rajinikanth and Kasthuri Raja, both decided that they might actually work together and decided to make them meet.

“So, I have to thank the media for my marriage with Aishwarya. I reiterate that ours is not a love marriage,” he told the press when he announced his marriage during a conference. Asked if he was perturbed by the fact that Aishwarya is older than him, he retorted with apparent irritation, “The age factor does not affect me at all.”

Dhanush and Aishwarya married each other in the year 2004. They are proud parents of two boys – Yathra and Linga.

On the professional front, Dhanush has Jagame Thandhiram, Karnan and Atrangi Re.

Despite all odds, they find their way to success and this woman from Hyderabad is no different. after going through several physical and emotional challenges she stood her ground, found her passion and is now one of the strongest unsung heroes of our times. Read her story:

“I was 3 when I was diagnosed with Nephrotic Syndrome. Overnight, my stomach bloated to thrice its normal size and I was rushed to the hospital immediately. When the doctors examined my condition, they explained that it was major kidney complication that required surgery. I was put on dialysis, and the following years were pretty rough. While the other kids played with toys, I only got to play with syringes in hospitals. That’s how I spent a large chunk of my childhood.

 

 

By the time I turned seven, the doctors decided to go ahead with my kidney transplant. My granny graciously came forward and donated her kidney to me. My entire family stood by my side and the surgery was carried out in 1999. However, in a few years I contracted cerebral malaria, and despite recovery, the doctors told us to be prepared for a second transplant in the future as my kidney had been affected. It was seven years later when my kidney gave up completely, and I had to resort to dialysis once again. Fortunately, my uncle had already come forward a few years earlier to donate his kidney, so I got lucky once again! So, after four months of dialysis, I had my second transplant in 2013. I haven’t looked back since. Yes, I did lose a large chunk of my childhood and college, but the experience of dealing with my diagnosis has given me more strength than anybody will ever know.

Stemming from a passion for CrossFit, I got involved in trekking. Mountains had become my home away from home. They became a part of my identity- I never felt judged by them for everything I’ve been through, something I dealt with everywhere else. After clearing the Everest Base Camp and a few smaller treks, it was finally time to attempt the 11,150 ft altitude Chadar trek. The most challenging phase of this trek is a walk over a frozen thin glass-like river with towering mountains on either side, dangerously beautiful.

Along with my friends that I met in Leh, I began the trek on the morning of 15th January last year. We got accustomed to the environment of Chadar, and grew the faith that she wouldn’t harm us. Finally, with the support of the team and the alertness of our guides and porters, we were able to complete the trek by 20th January despite all the odds. Our guides and sherpas were like angels. If it wasn’t for them, a person such as myself who always needed clean drinking water and extra care, would never have managed to complete the trek. It’s even been recorded in the Asia Book of Records, how cool is that?

It’s a shame that when people see someone like me, their first questions are “Oh! Will anyone marry her?”, “Can she still have children?”. I’m fortunate to be surrounded by people who are not that close minded, and I want my journey to be proof that anyone who has had a kidney transplant can achieve whatever they want. While the mountains have rejected so many healthy people due to altitude and various other reasons, they have allowed me to prove my abilities to the world!”

But, we have only seen glimpses of actor Arvind Swami sporting the role of the legendary actor-turned-politician Dr. MG Ramachandran fondly known by his fans as Puratchi Thalaivar MGR.

On MGR’s death Anniversary, Arvind Swami has shared some breathtaking images of the actor’s complete transformation into the former Chief Minister leaving the film industry spellbound. Along with these images, Arvind Swami has also penned down an emotional note talking about how this role has transformed him.

“It was not just an honour to play the role of Puratchi Thalaivar MGR, but a great responsibility. I thank director A.L. Vijay & producers @vishinduri @shaaileshrsingh for having faith in me. I humbly post these pics in Thalaivar’s memory, today. #Thalaivi #MGR #ArvindSwamiasMGR,” wrote Arvind Swami on his social media platform.

 

 

 

 

Actor Samudhirakani also shared some pictures of himself from the film Thalaivi alongside Arvind Swami as MGR. Check it out:

 

Meanwhile Kangana has been completing her portions as the Iron Lady in a speedy pace. From no prosthetics for her role to learning full-fledged Bharathnatyam, Kangana has completely transformed herself into the character.

Carried out by A.L. Vijay, who is in charge of this multilingual project, says, “The film depicts the early years and struggles she faced both as an actor and as a politician. The film will be an unvarnished depiction of Late Jayalalitha’s life. The late CM’s life was a mix of glamour, love, heartbreak, struggle, and success. Our focus is to make it as real as possible, without trying to glorify her, but show the human side of the person she was. Kangana’s dedication towards playing the character shows in the fact that she gained weight to stay true to the stage of her life that she is portraying. Her attention to detail, her makeup and costumes will make it a visual treat for the audience. They will feel like they are watching Jayalalitha herself on screen.”

Several from the film industry have wished the Indian 2 actress a speedy recovery. Meanwhile, in her social media post, Rakul has stated that it is always better to get tested and get well soon.

Several people who detect possible symptoms of COVID prefer not to get tested and quarantined to not face the consequences of the stigma surrounding the viral disease that is largely spreading.

However, Rakul has urged everyone to get tested as and when necessary without any fear.

In her social media post, Rakul wrote, “I’d like to inform everyone that I have tested positive for COVID-19. I have quarantined myself. I am feeling fine and will rest up well so that I can be back at shoot soon. Please get yourself tested. Thank you and please stay safe.”

You may only think that the couple is actually staying together but are unfortunately not and team Annathae has given Nayan a strict instruction not to. It has been reported that the team has created a bio-bubble. Apart from the government prescribed SOPs for COVID-19 prevention, the makers have been following a strict bio-bubble protocol to prevent any infection and they have opted for a completely indoor-schedule. A bio-bubble is a safe and secure environment which is rigorously maintained infection free to minimise the risk of COVID infection.

This has made sure that none of the actors can go out of the facility and no outsider can enter the location, too. This has reportedly saddened the couple to even be able to meet one another. This bio-bubble has been created for a 45-day schedule. Actors Keerthy Suresh, Meena, Prakash Raj, Khushbu and Soori among others are also staying indoors and are being checked regularly for a hale and healthy lifestyle.

The team is currently finishing up all the post-interval scenes and are expected to wrap up by January 2021. The film is looking at a Tamil New Year release and after this Rajinikanth is expected to focus entirely on his political Party.

On the professional front, Nayanthara has Nizhal alongside Kunchakoo Boban and Paattu alongside Fahadh Faasil in Alphonse Puthran’s next in Malayalam, Netri Kann and Kaathuvaakula Rendu Kadhal in Tamil. Overall Nayanthara is expected to have some terrific releases.

Although Sanam Shetty was not everyone’s favourite initialy, as the show forwarded, people grew a liking towards her.

Although Sanam has been evicted from the reality show, she has garnered a lot of fans as a result who have supported her throughout the journey. In a recent interview with The Times of India, Sanam was asked about her interest in Bigg Boss to which she said, “People always knew me as a model. Despite doing close to 20 films in different languages, I felt I didn’t get recognition as an actress. That was one of the reasons why I wanted to be part of Bigg Boss Tamil because this show gives you worldwide visibility in a short span of time. Now, after coming out of the house, I am quite satisfied with my experiences and the fame I have received. I feel I’ve utilised the opportunity and time wisely.”

She further believed that the reality show has changed the way the people of Tamil Nadu have perceived her after Bigg Boss. “The news about me and the contestant from the previous season (Tharshan) was received with mixed response. Though I had received support from some quarters, there was a bit of confusion as well. Many didn’t like the fact that I came out openly and spoke about my personal issues. There were some people who believed that everything about me was fake. But I’m sure they now understand why I did certain things when I was affected. I have to thank people for standing by me. The kind of love and support I’m receiving now is beyond my expectations. I will be grateful to Tamil people across the world forever for the lovely hashtags they had put up on social media supporting me.”

On the professional front, Sanam has two film releases in the pipeline titled Ethirvinaiyaatru and Parthiban. Sanam wants to do roles that are powerful and impactful and are hearing scripts accordingly.

The entire team has now flown to Hyderabad to complete the shooting of the film. Rajinikanth was the first to leave with his wife and daughter Aishwarya. Simultaneously Nayanthara flew on the very same day to complete her shoot.

Eventually, Keerthy Suresh followed the duo Hyderabad after completing her shoot for Nithiin’s Rang De. The trio are now currently shooting for their scenes. We have now spotted the leading ladies of the film at the airport clicking a selfie together. However, we are not sure if the duo are actually flying to Hyderabad to complete their shoot or it was a mere coincidence that they met at the airport.

Meena took to social media to share this happy picture and captioned it, “Look who I met at the airport @khushsundar.”

Mon, 21 Dec 2020 04:42:49 +0000 https://jfwonline.com/article/meet-ambili-a-kerala-woman-who-turns-plastic-at-her-home-into-mats/ Meet Ambili: A Kerala Woman Who Turns Plastic At Her Home Into Mats! https://jfwonline.com/article/meet-ambili-a-kerala-woman-who-turns-plastic-at-her-home-into-mats/ Women entrepreneurs are of all kinds these days. From selling homemade edibles to creating a bunch of successful youngsters, women are doing everything in their power to make this world a better place to live. From sustainable living to zero-waste food, women are coming up with some of the most innovative ideologies.

One such woman is Ambili Prasannakumar. Hailing from Kerala, Ambili says that she loves the mat-making hobby and that it keeps her “tension-free”. But, that was not the story Ambili began mat-making. The sheer number of plastics in her house never gave her any peace of mind. “It is difficult to go a day without encountering plastic, be it the milk cartons, food packages, food containers, water bottles, feminine hygiene products and the list goes on,” said Ambili.

Ambili had to make sure she reduced the plastic disposal from her house and hence, she make up with an idea to preserve it. “It is really difficult to avoid plastic from our lives. Even if we try to use cloth bags and other alternatives, the reign of plastic doesn’t end there. While thinking about how to clean the plastic covers at home, I got an idea. ‘Why don’t I reuse the plastic without harming the environment’ — I wondered,” stated Ambili in an interview with The Better India.

Ambili reuses plastic covers and converts them into table mats. A big advantage of plastic table mats is that these keep the table safe from the heat of the vessels. What began as a hobby during the lockdown has now become a passion for Ambili. She does not waste a penny on purchasing mats from outside anymore.

 

 

“I use my old nighties and other clothes at home for making the mat. If people know how to do embroidery, the table mats will definitely look prettier,” she said.

Several shopkeepers want her to make her mat-making a business but Ambili does not want to make it a business. But, she is teaching several the art of mat-making.

“Everyone can make this easy table mat and carpet at home. There is no need to take orders and make a business out of it. I receive many calls regarding the mat, instead I always help them how to make it. I want others to also reuse the plastic at their home in a useful way like me without harming the environment. That is the only thing I aim to do by making these mats,” concluded Ambili.

41-year-old Ambili is now in the process of making fruit basket covers as well. She is an inspiration to several women today.

As the audience and critics rave her performance in the film, here’s the actress raving about another actor in an interview.

Sai Pallavi in a recent interview talked about how she was stunned by actor and Telugu superstar Mahesh Babu’s flawless skin. In the interview, she stated, “He looks so freaking handsome. He has flawless skin. Sometimes when I see his pictures, I wonder it’s impossible for a person to look that perfect. His skin just shines. Half the time, I zoom-in (pictures) I see and oh! Ok! I think he looks spotless.”

The actor sure does have a lot of female fans for his good-looks and Sai Pallavi seems to be one of them.

On the professional front, Sai Pallavi was last seen in the anthology Paava Kadhaigal. The actress has now wrapped up her final schedule of her upcoming Telugu film Love Story also starring Naga Chaitanya in the lead and directed by Sekhar Kammula.

On the other hand, Mahesh Babu was last seen in the film Sarrileru Neekevvaru. The actor is currently shooting for Sarkaru Vaari Paata. The film has Keerthy Suresh in the lead and is directed by Parasuram.

From Lakshmy Ramakrishnan’s comment to Peter Paul’s wife and son’s accusations, Vanitha has tossed them all out of her life with her comments. However, looks like it all is not well in their wedding. It has been reported that Peter and Vanitha got into a heated argument after drunk filmmaker misbehaved with her recently in Goa. Reportedly, she beat him up and has also thrown him out of her house. However, there is no official word regarding the same by the actress yet. Ravindar Chandrasekharan confirmed the news with a cryptic message on Facebook.

Vanitha  in a long Twitter post had opened up about her marriage with Peter Paul. She exposed that they really are serious issues and she had been facing a lot of problems. However she is not ready to give up yet keeping in mind her children and family.

After several controversies, Vanitha is yet again in news.

The Bigg Boss fame posted a photo on Instagram with just text that read, “In Love Again…Are you happy now? and tagged actress Uma Riaz Khan. Now it remains to see if she is in love again or it is just a sarcastic post for a friend. Only time will tell!” Meanwhile, she has disabled comments for this specific post.

 

This has unfolded weeks after Vanitha posted a story  about her separation from Peter Paul on Instagram. Here’s what it read:

 

Vanitha is yet to comment further on the same.

They have been actively utilising their social media to talk about issues and stigma surrounding pregnancy and motherhood. It is laudable to see public figures use their audience and social media as efficiently as these two. In a recent, Sruti has addressed an important issue. Talking about post-partem weightloss, Sruti has apparently received a lot of comments addressing to her quick weight-loss only three months post pregnancy.

Addressing the issue, Sruti wrote, “Don’t let anyone dull your sparkle ! Remember that beauty is only skin deep ! 🤗✨🌈  Spare a little time. Read what I’ve written and also , head to @mayas_amma page and see her 10 minute video on why body shamers actually shame you. You could probably even confront them and share the video with them 🙂
Each body , each pregnancy, each child is different. You should never be comparing yourself or your child with another ! Everyone is a work in progress.”

Sat, 19 Dec 2020 05:47:25 +0000 https://jfwonline.com/article/trending-police-produce-important-audio-evidence-against-vj-chitras-husband-hemanth/ TRENDING: Police Produce Important Audio Evidence Against VJ Chitra’s Husband Hemanth! https://jfwonline.com/article/trending-police-produce-important-audio-evidence-against-vj-chitras-husband-hemanth/ VJ Chitra took her life on December 9th leaving behind a hollow in the hearts of her fans and followers. It came as a shocker when the news of her death swamped all over social media. Several from the industry expressed their shock, grief and condolendes to the family. Meanwhile, the Nazratpet Police have been keeping a close watch on the Pandian Stores actress’ husband Hemanth, who is also a businessman by profession.

Hemanth and Chitra stayed together at a hotel and Chitra after a late night’s shoot had returned to her hotel. Hemanth then claimed that his wife had asked him to wait outside while she goes to take a shower. After a prolonged time, a worried Hemanth had reportedly taken the help of the Hotel’s manager to get access to his room to find Chitra hanging from the ceiling. Hemanth was then taken into custody for further investigation regarding the untimely death. During the first day he revealed that the couple was legally married via registration.

After a couple more days, Chitra’s mother had claimed that something was fishy about Hemanth’s behaviour and accused him of allegedly killing her daughter.

After six days of scrutinizing and interrogation, Hemanth has been arrested and taken into custody for abetting the actress’ suicide. According to the reports, Hemanth was arrested and was produced at the Poonamallee High Court. During a recent media interaction, the Police claimed that they have gathered enough evidence to issue a public arrest. Reports now suggest that the Police have obtained an audio evidence against Hemanth.

According to police sources, a conversation between VJ Chitra and her father-in-law was found in her phone. In the audio, Chitra had said that Hemanth repeatedly objected to her playing intimate scenes with her co-artists of TV series Pandian Stores. It was also revealed that heated arguments often arose between the couple. She shared an incident where Hemanth made her promise in public that she would not participate in reality shows that may have her on-screen pair from the series as her co-contestant.

Apparently, all these incidents happened before the couple registered their marriage. Post their marriage, Chitra was reportedly abused by Hemanth and he accused her of having illicit affairs, reports DT Next.

The Police have also stated that Hemanth had deleted all the images, audio recordings and several other evidence from Chitra’s phone beforehand. The investigative team has further stated that Hemanth reportedly had an affair and are inquiring further regarding the same.

On the work front, Chitra is known for her performance in serials like Saravanan Meenatchi, Velunachi, Darling Darling, Mannan Magal and Chinna Papa Periya Papa, to name a few. As a dancer, Chithra took part as one of the contestants of the show Jodi Fun Unlimited also.

But, when she was a child, she had to face the wrath of her parents’ separation. Priya* states that as a young child it was very agonizing and painful to having to lose a parent to separation or divorce. Her father later on went ahead and had gotten converted into another religion. Priya*, as a child, had found that very embarrassing. After 22 years, a well-settled Priya* from Chennai finally decided to mend things with her father. Humans of Madras narrated her story as is, read it:

“The conversation about my father was always something that embarrassed me ever since my childhood. My parents got separated when I was a little girl. Theirs was an inter-religion marriage and in 90s, it was not something common. I never really got the right answers from my mother who raised me. Whatever information she provided was bare minimum. She was focused on her job, to provide for me. I grew up feeling incomplete, without a proper family. I was always curious as a child and that gave me some sense of independence. Since the age of 13 or 14, I used to take buses alone, travel long and come back alone. With time, this was sometimes in search of my father, to places I thought he’d be at. When I joined Ethiraj college for my undergraduate studies, I felt terrible looking at how some of the kids would debate about whose father was a bigger, more popular figure in society. My curiosity and search intensified. Archana was a good friend who understood me. From whatever little I shared with her about my father’s whereabouts and details, we closed in on the congested streets of Royapettah and regularly went there to search. It was difficult. We were two girls and enquiring about a muslim man made the locals suspect us. For the three years of my under-graduation the search continued, every Saturday. We finished the course. I got a job and she was getting ready for her Master’s. There was no progress in our search. I accepted that this was not going to happen,” writes Priya. On 19th May 2013, I got a call from Archana. ‘Padhu, I think I found his address,’ she said. I was excited! She had asked a shopkeeper and had found his whereabouts. In the next 30 minutes I reached the place. I was finally able to picturise my perfect family moment. I was happy I could bring my father to my wedding. And that everyone would be together in a family photo. The shopkeeper asked us to go the first floor of the rickety building adjacent to his shop, probably built in late 70s. My heart raced as we reached the door. It was almost 22 years long that he was going to see someone from his past. I was clueless as to how he or his current family would react to a Hindu daughter coming from his previous marriage. While I was lost in my thoughts, Archana was at the door, calling, ‘Sir …’ And then a sharp voice came up, ‘yes, open the door.’ As I opened the door, I saw an old man. I asked, ‘Sir, Jaffar?’ Smilingly he said, ‘yes, that’s me.’ The father-daughter connection was instant. I opened up about my identity for which he replied he knew I was his daughter but never knew my name or anything else. I hugged him tight as tears rolled down my cheeks. We spent hours talking about everything I wanted to share with him in the 22 years of my life. I clicked just one picture with him that day. Days passed, we did not meet another time and he passed away. I never made any effort to connect with his other family, nor did they with me; I want it to continue like that. While I couldn’t bring him to my wedding, my longing was finally fulfilled. In the years that followed, I happily married my boyfriend and had my own child. It is strange as never did he ever question me about my father during the time we dated. It is only now that you ask me I realise that nobody ever held the issue against me. It was me, who was completely consumed by this person I never had in life. For others, they treated me normally, just like how they’d treat other girls. I am glad I have had such people around,” concludes Priya in her story.

 

 

This is a brave woman for sorting out differences irrespective of her opinions and hesitation, she knew love was more powerful. What do you think of her beautiful story?

Fri, 18 Dec 2020 18:33:16 +0000 https://jfwonline.com/article/paava-kadhaigal-movie-review-a-disturbing-reality-everyone-must-watch/ Paava Kadhaigal Movie Review: A Disturbing Reality Everyone MUST Watch! https://jfwonline.com/article/paava-kadhaigal-movie-review-a-disturbing-reality-everyone-must-watch/ Anthologies are a new trend in the industry but most anthologies today are based out of creating an angle through generic topics. After a while, the Tamil film industry has created something powerful and impactful that it is sure to leave one awry and disturbed yet process the reality of it. We are aware of the fact that directors like Sudha and Vetrimaaran create hard-hitting content.

But, when directors like Gautham Menon and Vignesh Shivan who have constantly entertained their audience with light-hearted beats, have explored the agonizing side of films, it truly shows how much the industry is expanding in terms of broadminded content.

Paava Kadhaigal is the darkest side of our society and the fatalistic side to human existance. The first film titled Thangam directed by Sudha Kongara sees Kalidas Jayaram , Shanthanu Bhagyaraj and Bhavani Sre of ka Pae Ranasingam fame in the lead. Sudha’s story touches upon acceptance, something our society rarely does. We hardly accept an individual as one is and a tragic end to that leaves us speechless and guilty. Sattaaru (Kalidas) is a trans woman who struggles everyday being oppressed by the society, by her own loved ones. All she craves for is love and affection and the constant denial for that and just her identity as it is, is tragic and leaves you incomplete and disturbed. Kalidas Jayaram is a class apart as Sattaru and has proved his mettle as an actor.

Vignesh Shivan’s Love Panna Vitrunam touches upon the society’s denial and aggression towards intercaste wedding and also upon different sexual orientations. Starring Kalki Koechlin and Anjali in the lead, the film initially shows Kalki and Anjali to be lesbians. They muster the courage to confess that to their father and what unfolds after that is the narrative. The gist of the narrative is understood but the film has several hits and misses probably being the weakest of the four stories. Although it does convey a wonderful message of love, there are several loopholes that could easily be touched upon. However, the best part about the film would have to be exploring dark humour and that is definitely something refreshing.

Gautham Menon has shown us variations of love stories in his own ways but this has been his personal best so far. Vaanmagal is a story of a young girl with dreams. But when unbearable tragedy strikes her, her conservative mother Mathi (Simran) is clueless as to how she must deal with the society as the consequences of her daughter’s tragedy. But, what unfolds as a result is simply marvellous. Simran has proved yet again that we need more actors like her in the industry choosing roles as impactful as this one. Gautham Menon’s rendition of an awry love shows the kinds of love story a director like him could capacitate.

Last but not the least and probably one of the most impactful stories of the anthology would have to be Orr Iravu starring Prakash Raj and Sai Pallavi in the lead. Directed by Vetrimaaran, the film elaborates of variations if honour killings and what extent an extremist could go upto to do something as horrendous as this. Vetrimaaran is known to captivate his audience through hard-hitting reality and he has done that once again with this short film instilling a sense of fear, pain and agony in the audiende and yet asking them to accept this reality.

Overall, each story has intricately explained in its given time, the tragedy that is our society. We may see very little of the negative side to reality but people and their ways of escapism from that tragic reality into our world is something we never see because not everyone makes it to the finish line. This anthology is by far one of the best makes in the history of Tamil film and will have an impact on its people for a very long time!

Verdict: You might want to have a strong heart to watch this.

Rating: 4.5/5

Weightage of women: 4.5/5

Fri, 18 Dec 2020 06:39:22 +0000 https://jfwonline.com/article/breaking-malayalam-actress-anna-ben-sexually-harassed-in-public-narrates-her-horrific-experience/ BREAKING: Malayalam Actress Anna Ben Sexually Harassed In Public; Narrates Her Horrific Experience! https://jfwonline.com/article/breaking-malayalam-actress-anna-ben-sexually-harassed-in-public-narrates-her-horrific-experience/ Sexual harassment, molestation and non-consensual encounters in public places are shockingly common and almost every woman in our country has to face this mishap. While some of them openly talk about it, some of them process the time to even understand and comprehend as to what actually happened to them. A woman’s position or fame, worth and strength does not even matter to these sexual predators who simply head out to make lives miserable.

One such tragic incident has happened to actress Anna Ben who has done some terrific roles in films like Kumbalangi Nights, Helen and Kappela.

Anna was apparently shopping for groceries at a supermarket along with her sister, mother and her brother when two men casually walked near her and grabbed her back. Before Anna, could process what just happened to her, the men casually walked past her.

Her sister who witnessed the entire incident came to her and enquired if she was okay. Anna talked about all the emotions she went through that very minute, all the things she wanted to say and do to them but it took her really long to even process the fact that some sexual predator simply grabbed her private parts and walked away like nothing happened.

As the sisters walked towards the cash counter, the men approached them yet again and asked Anna about the films she does as he walked more closer to her. But soon her mother noticed this and walked towards them. Seeing this, the men left the space and walked away.

Talking about this on social media, Anna said, “As I type this I can think of a thousand things I could have told them and a hundred things I could have done. But I didn’t. I just couldn’t. I just wanted to let this out here so I could feel a little relief. To feel that I have done something about it knowing fully that they walked away without guilt or trouble. Knowing that they might do it again, it angers me.”

“Being a woman has been very tiring, to be on guard every minute as you step out of your house. To watch my clothes when I bend and turn. To guard my chest with my arms in a crowd… And on the days I’m home, I worry about my mother, my sister, my friends who have to do the same things. It is all because of these sick men. You take away our safety. You take away our comfort and the joy of our womanhood. I despise you,” the actor wrote.

Addressing men, she added, “If you have done anything remotely inappropriate to a woman, know that you are the lowest form of life and you don’t deserve anything but hell. And to all the women reading her post, she said, “I hope you have the courage to give a tight slap on the face of such men.”

 

 

Anna Ben has been courageous enough to talk about it and create more awareness on standing up for oneself. That in itself is a first step. It is imperative that women standup for themselves against these sexual predators and realise that there are people who would support them at such situations. More power to stronger women!

Thu, 17 Dec 2020 13:14:18 +0000 https://jfwonline.com/article/meet-raji-akka-the-midnight-auto-driver-who-is-a-saviour-for-women/ Meet Raji Akka: The Midnight Auto Driver Who Is A Saviour For Women! https://jfwonline.com/article/meet-raji-akka-the-midnight-auto-driver-who-is-a-saviour-for-women/ You can call her in the midnight and she will be there to save your life. Raji Akka has been driving for 20 years and serving all the women around the city of Chennai when in need. She receives calls from various women working in various fields. She once received at call at around 12 AM from a woman working at a graveyard who wanted a pick up and she selflessly went there.

“Whether it is the middle of the night or an insufferably hot afternoon, I never refuse a ride to a woman. Even after my 8-9 hour shift has ended,” said 48-year-old Raji who has been driving an auto for 20 years now.

In a scenario when women are finding it hard to trust cabs and autos in the midnight, here comes Raji who would not consider time an obstacle and pick them up on time.

“Whether it is the middle of the night or an insufferably hot afternoon, I never refuse a ride to a woman. Even after my 8-9 hour shift has ended, I get many calls from women to go to Chennai airport, or from women working late shifts. I accept all the requests. My only condition is that they book the ride at least one hour in advance so I can schedule them,” said Raji.

 

 

Raji Akka works 8 to 9 hours everyday but she does not mind if the women in need call her after hours too. Raji offers free rides to young kids, senior citizens and those women who may not have the cab fare to pay.

Raji completes 30 trips everyday and earns about 30,000 to 40,000 as her monthly income.

Raji is originally from Palakkad, Kerala and has a BA in Philosophy. While she was still a student, she fell in love with Ashok, an auto-driver from the village, whom she married later. Although she didn’t go into the details of the struggles the couple initially faced but shortly after getting married, the two decided to shift to Coimbatore. Here, while Ashok drove an auto, Raji worked as an accountant at a travel agency.

However, the couple shifted base to Chennai after the 1998 bomb blasts in Coimbatore that took nearly 60 lives.

“The horrific blasts had affected hundreds of people, and we were two of them. We had no option but to restart our lives and so we came to Chennai. My brother worked here in the railways, so we had a strong base to restart our lives on. This change of city brought with it its share of challenges. For one, I could not find a job despite my qualification and experience. After several failed interviews, I decided to start driving an auto for a living just like my husband,” quoted Raji to the Better India.

Raji initially had gotten her license from Coimbatore but she believed she needed to learn more as a skilled Auto driver to understand the traffic scenario in Chennai. “These were hiccups in my journey but could not stop me from getting better. I traded my new auto for a second-hand one and practiced even more. Soon, there was no street in Chennai that was alien to me, and I could manage driving in the traffic as well as any local,” she said.

“Over the past few years, I have given motivational talks in over 13 colleges in Chennai. I also give free auto driving lessons to women interested in joining this profession. This is a great occupation for women, and I want to encourage more ladies to drive autos professionally,” concluded Raji.

Despite acting in several films she has been stubborn with the fact that she would not kiss anyone onscreen. Apparently, the actress does not prefer kissing any of her co-stars onscreen and even makes sure that condition is there in every film contract she signs.

However, in a recent conversation with her contemporary Samantha Akkineni in her talk show Sam Jam. When asked if she would break her no-kissing rule for someone, she said she would gladly break it for Vijay Deverakonda. Well, they would be a fresh onscreen pair and they might even create an unbelievable chemistry onscreen.

In an earlier interview of Famously Filmfare with Jithesh Pillai, Tamannaah was asked a similar question to which she cheekily stated that she would gladly break the pact for her forever crush Hrithik Roshan.

On the professional front, Tamannaah has Gopichand’s Seetimaarr and Sathyadev-directed Gurthunda Seethakaalam. Tamannaah is also awaiting the release of This is Mahalakshmi the remake of Kangana Ranaut’s Bollywood blockbuster, Queen. The film is being remade in four different South Indian languages. While Tamannaah is doing the Telugu version, Kajal Aggarwal would be doing the Tamil version, Manjima Mohan the Malayalam version and Parul Yadav, the Kannada version. All four versions are being directed by actor-director Ramesh Aravind.

Motorist Aishwarya Pissay

Come hail or high water, motorist Aishwarya Pissay‘s hardy spirit simply will not back down from a challenge. Hailing from Bangalore, Aishwarya was expected to follow the predictable path towards engineering or medicine. But, knowing she was different, she went ahead and chose her own journey. Here she is now, a world champion who has made her parents and her country proud.

I started riding motorcycles as a passion. Riding gave me a sense of freedom and I felt alive every time I was on a bike. Once I had a travelled on motorcycles over a period of time, I started training at Apex racing academy for circuit racing after which I started winning championships. Due to my performance in 2017, TVS Racing signed me on as a factory racer which helped me pursue racing professionally.

I received a proper form of training for my future championships. I was initially trained to understand what navigation was and the technicality behind it. After that, my training sessions would be four to five days a week. Then there was an endurance training to develop strength and conditioning. There are cognitive games and mental conditioning to develop stability. Eventually, after all this, there is a special training depending on the country that conducts the competition. I am currently training for the world championship in 2020.

Pilot Varsha Nair

Varsha Nair is one of a few women working as a commercial pilot in India.  After an arts degree, a lot of convincing, challenges and adventures, Varsha Nair followed her father’s flight path and her childhood dream to become a pilot. “My father was an Air Traffic Controller. I grew up majorly in airports authority of India quarters. Seeing airplanes take off and land was my only happiness. Dad used to take me to the tower most of the days, so I could watch it all the time. That’s how the fascination began and the passion for flying started.” she told JFW in an exclusive interview. “Flying is a career which will give you a lot of challenges everyday. I had to travel to almost all parts of the country for my training and exams. My flight school was located in a remote village near Sagar, Madhya Pradesh. Back then I couldn’t afford a flight ticket and had to travel by trains, late in the night, all alone to get there. I used to be there in my flight school everyday from 5am-7pm in the hangar  waiting for a sortie. Apart from my planned one, thinking I would get an extra hour to log if someone didn’t turn up. Those struggles didn’t look challenging to me because of my hunger and passion for flying.” She says about the daily challenges she faces.

IPS officer, Roopa D Moudgil

Back in 2017, when the entire media flashed headlines about the special treatment being given to Sasikala in the Bengaluru Central Prison, the name of a woman cop caught the spotlight for having been fearless enough to expose these discrepancies. That fearless cop was none other than D Roopa Moudgil, the then DIG (Prisons) who is currently serving as the first woman Home Secretary of Karnataka!

While pursuing her graduation and post graduation in psychology and sociology she continued to be part of NCC and also kept preparing for the UPSC exams. She cleared the exams with flying colours and got the All India 47th rank in the UPSC exam and was allotted her home cadre. Even during the police training she came 5th in her batch training alongside the boys in the activities. Sharp shooting became her forte, and she dominated all the competition therein.

Her gritty spirit and active energy was too distinct to go unnoticed. Naturally, she was entrusted with the most challenging of postings, and each one of them only made Roopa tougher. She consistently worked on the principle that no one, not even a powerful politician, is above the law.

Social Worker and Motivational Speaker Malavika Iyer

While most injuries leave behind a mark, a few leave behind a legacy. The story of Malvika Iyer, a 30-year-old amputee is one such.  A social worker, a Ph.D. scholar, an international motivational speaker, a disability rights activist, a Global Shaper and so much more, giving up was never an option for Malvika. At the age of thirteen, she lost both her arms and greatly injured her legs in a bomb blast. She was bedridden for eighteen months, but that didn’t stop her from advancing in life. She emerged as a state topper in her tenth grade which was a shock to many considering she was in the hospital the entire time of preparation. This was not the only time that she would be surprising people; it was just the beginning of a long successful and inspiring journey of Malvika Iyer. Travelling across the globe to give motivational speeches today, she is a spark to a million flames.

Joint Director of the Fire and Rescue department, Priya Ravichandran

 

She stays confident, beams with enigma and most of all, she is a superwoman who saves lives of people, literally. This courageous fire officer elaborates on her journey which may sound heroic but not without immense struggle, motivation, and support. 

Where it all started:

Priya has always known that she wanted to be a part of the Government. Her petite frame doesn’t quite match her job, and she laughs saying, “Though I had that inclination since childhood I never really did anything like joining the NCC or being an active participant in sports, to take it forward. In truth, I was the dainty sort, being more interested in dance and drama.” Hailing from a conservative family she adds, “My father is my strongest support system as he has always backed me in whatever I aspired to do. He was unique himself. In my community, he was probably one of the very first Chartered Accountants. We both loved breaking the glass ceiling. He was by no means hesitant to send me to JNU, Delhi for my higher studies, a very rare thing in those days. She worked towards her intent only after she went to Delhi for her higher studies, completing her Masters and M. Phil in Sociology, while simultaneously preparing for the UPSC and TNPSC exams.

Many women are struggling today in such scenarios. One such scenario told by a Facebook page Akkar Bakkar would be this case of a sexual predator who justifies his gruesome act on sexually molesting his own cousin, young 12-year-old and then justifying that on her so-called “provocative clothing”. Here’s his story:

“19 years back, I was only 15  and had just completed my 10th exam from state board and scored 88% of mark which were considered as good that time.

My father who was working in central govt. as commissioner had got transferred to a different city which was 500 kms away from our home town. So I and my father shifted to a different city and my mom, one brother and one sister were staying in our hometown as my brother was doing BTech and sister was doing MBBS nearby.

Meanwhile my father got a govt. quarter- a 5 BHK flat and we both were to stay in that quarter. I got admission in a college in the new city. Things were going great, but later after 3 months one of our relatives discussed with my father and asked him if they could stay with us as they were staying on rent in the same city. So my father accepted and they moved to our quarter.

As she was a little kid she used to roam around in the house either in vest or daily wear clothes. So it was very normal for any 5th standard girl. After one year, when she reached in 6th standard things were not normal. Now as she reached 12 years of age, I noticed many physical changes in her and it was very new for me as my age was around 16 and it’s a really bad age to control yourself.

One day when my uncle went to his shop and aunt was not at home and her sister was not there she came to me and asked, bhai I am unable to solve this, can you help me please? I saw her, she was wearing a vest where her inner parts were clearly visible. I immediately asked her- Anni, go and come to me after 8 pm as I am busy, because I could not see my cousin in that dress. She replied she had more home work to finish and requested me to help her. So, I just solved her problem and went out of my house, and during same night in front of my eyes her picture was coming and I felt bad and said to myself to focus on other things as she is my close cousin.

Later one day, when no one was at home, only me and Anni were there, I asked her to come to my room and she was wearing a pair of shorts and top. I intentionally played with her and held her and later put my hand slowly towards her chest and I felt it and I was not sure if she was aware of my intentions.

After few months, she had turned 13 years and in 7th standard and by the time I had completed my 12th and appeared for engineering . One day in the morning around 9:30AM I saw her coming out after her bath from bathroom with a towel and I knew her sister had gone for coaching, my father  to office, my uncle to his shop and aunt was in different room. I saw her with a towel and went to her room directly. She said why you entered our room while you know I have to change and wear clothes. I did not say anything to her but held her and removed her towel. She was speechless and I was nervous as I was unaware of what I was doing.

As per me, it was neither me nor she who was responsible for what happened to us. Sometimes we are so immature and don’t know what’s wrong or right. After reading this people will say many things about my upbringing and many other things but the fact is, it’s natural and at that age you do not have information what is good or what is bad.

I shared this story because it’s better if we can teach our kids what’s good and what’s not good.

To say that he was not unaware of what he was doing is the most irresponsible answer in the entire story. Gone are those days when little girls could be free, happy and independent. Today they are mere objects to sexual predators, family or not. This story is only proof that men are not taught the right things anymore and women are not being taught that family can be equally dangerous and one must stay alert everywhere!

Wed, 16 Dec 2020 05:22:37 +0000 https://jfwonline.com/article/trending-after-six-days-of-investigation-vj-chitras-husband-arrested/ TRENDING: After Six Days Of Investigation VJ Chitra’s Husband Arrested! https://jfwonline.com/article/trending-after-six-days-of-investigation-vj-chitras-husband-arrested/ VJ Chitra took her life on December 9th leaving behind a hollow in the hearts of her fans and followers. It came as a shocker when the news of her death swamped all over social media. Several from the industry expressed their shock, grief and condolendes to the family. Meanwhile, the Nazratpet Police have been keeping a close watch on the Pandian Stores actress’ husband Hemanth, who is also a businessman by profession.

Hemanth and Chitra stayed together at a hotel and Chitra after a late night’s shoot had returned to her hotel. Hemanth then claimed that his wife had asked him to wait outside while she goes to take a shower. After a prolonged time, a worried Hemanth had reportedly taken the help of the Hotel’s manager to get access to his room to find Chitra hanging from the ceiling. Hemanth was then taken into custody for further investigation regarding the untimely death. During the first day he revealed that the couple was legally married via registration.

After a couple more days, Chitra’s mother had claimed that something was fishy about Hemanth’s behaviour and accused him of allegedly killing her daughter.

After six days of scrutinizing and intereogation, Hemanth has been arrested and taken into custody for abetting the actress’ suicide. According to the reports, Hemanath was arrested and was produced at the Poonamalle High Court. During a recent media interaction, the Police claimed that they have gathered enough evidence to issue a public arrest.

The reports further claim that Hemanath was not comfortable about Chitra performing intimate scenes in her serials and the reality dance shows. He even dropped by her sets of the popular TV show Pandian Stores and scolded her after they had a fight about the same. Chitra’s famiky has now demanded a fair trail out of this case.

On the work front, Chitra is known for her performance in serials like Saravanan Meenatchi, Velunachi, Darling Darling, Mannan Magal and Chinna Papa Periya Papa, to name a few. As a dancer, Chithra took part as one of the contestants of the show Jodi Fun Unlimited also.

Halitha Shameem

 

Born to supportive parents, Halitha’s career was an open road from the jump. She began learning and understanding about direction from the age of 16, worked as an assistant director under several magnificent directors and today, stands tall with her own style well developed. After Sillu Karupatti, Halitha is ready to treat her audience with some of her finest works yet.

She says that this time that she had for herself made her creatively strong, which has helped her in her journey as a director. “I was well aware of my thoughts and I would use this awareness to my advantage. I remember my first poetry; it was about a tongue. Eventually my teachers started noticing my writing capacity in Tamil. I studied in a school dominated by Malayalam and my principal, would take my help to write down his speech in Tamil despite having Tamil teachers in school. I was looked at like a celebrity,” says Halitha smirking.

The major league directors whom she approached suggested alternate career options for her within the film industry. “I was very young and fragile. So, on a set if a director was shouting and swearing, I would just flee the sets. All that came to a standstill when I joined as an assistant director under the director duo Pushkar and Gayathri for the film Oramm Po. They would involve me in some serious discussions, take in my suggestions and made me feel like an integral part of the team,” says a grateful Halitha.

Eventually she assisted Samudhirakani in the film Nadodigal and director Mysskin for the film Nandalala. “They are all directors with different schools of thought and each of them taught me something very valuable,” says Halitha. Mirchi Siva’s Va Quarter Cutting was the last film Halitha worked on as an Associate Director.

2. Deepa Venkat

She was the voice behind the driven headmistress Geetha Rani in Raatchasi, the distressed yet brave game designer Swapna in Game Over, and very recently the godly voice of Amman we all caught glimpses of from the trailer of Nayanthara’s upcoming film Mookuthi Amman. Deepa Venkat began dreaming of acting as a little girl, while she was dubbing for Disney cartoons. Soon, she found herself in the world of radio and prime time television, all the while holding on to first love, dubbing.

Another recent project Deepa just finished voicing is Jyothika for her upcoming Ra Saravan’s film. “It was a Thanjavur slang I had to adopt.  I’m always quite nervous when it comes to slang. The director knew the accent very well so he helped me with it.”

According to Deepa, dubbing for a movie takes a minimum of three sittings with five or longer hours per day. Even though you are not on camera, you have to still act the part physically to effect the right voice. “With any film, the process starts with auditions. Even though the director would have heard my voice for the same actress in a different film, they will have a set of questions.  Every movie is different so the first step is always the voice test. For this they play an intense or emotional scene from the movie and observe my voice. I usually watch the whole scene first and get the outline of the role. I don’t have to hear the whole story but just enough to understand the character, what she does, where she’s from and so on.”

3. Archana Kalpathi

In an industry that has always been male-centric, Archana Kalpathi, producer of the box-office hit Bigil, is a woman who has carved out a niche for herself.  It’s a woman’s world too and there’s no reason why there shouldn’t be an equal number of women filmmakers and film producers. A revered film producer in her own right, she is also the CEO of AGS Cinema. From her very first project to her recent distribution assignment for Kabali, to producing Bigil, she has had her A-game on throughout.

4. Ezhilmathy

Some are born creative, some strive on with discipline; and then there’s costume designer Ezhilmathy, who senses the importance of both. Ezhilmathy was the costume designer in Thiyagaraja Kumararaja’s Super Deluxe starring Vijay Sethupathi, Samantha Akkineni, Fahadh Faasil, Mysskin and Ramya Krishnan. From using battery prints on an Ice Cream man’s shirt to a scrunchie on Samantha’s wrist, she is one of those rare designers who depicts characters as credible, yet deep.

Ezhilmathy started out her career as a physiotherapist and then her interest grew towards teaching children with special needs. She has even headed schools and has strongly believed in inclusive education. Ezhilmathy pursued her Masters in Inclusive Education in the United Kingdom. “I get bored with what I do quite easily. I initially grew interest towards physiotherapy, but I got distracted towards teaching. I have been doing all this, but styling has always been very interesting for me,” she says. Ezhilmathy believes that teaching the children at Vidya Sagar School, Chennai, was the right turn in her life. “I initially was roped in for doing physiotherapy for the children, but my passion deviated towards teaching,” she adds. Till date, she remains a teacher and a trainer for the children although she designs for huge projects today.

Some have been experimental, while others are totally suave. They range from comfort-friendly to sophisticated, and often, a little bit of both. Moreover, they are all open to interpretation and how you sport them.

A sartorial ride through this rollercoaster of a year. By Feba George

In spite of a pandemic throwing a curveball on the basic functioning of fashion industry – OOTDs, stay at home fashion, virtual runways and buzzworthy Instagram trends have been mechanising in full force. Here’s a glimpse of radical new ways of indoor self-expression, curated for the readers to skim through:

Trend

Elevated Basics

The excessive staying-at-home has blurred the lines between daywear and nightwear. After the success of pyjama dressing, we are addressing the newest inevitable trend on the block – indoors-outdoor fashion, but with zero compromise to comfort. Think: silk co-ords, lounge robes, kaftans, athleisure and loose sweatshirts, slouchy fits elevated with layering.

Print

Tie-dye Updated

Tie-dyes are an absolute trend staple. Keeping the comfort quotient in mind, this print form returns with a versatile upgrade. As designers continue to back the relevance of beautifying #abovethekeyboard dressing, a statement technique like this will appeal to consumers looking to stand out on screen. Take note and elevate your tie-dye game on!

Perennial Paisley

Retro palettes with dense printed pieces are a failsafe approach to staying trendy behind the screens. This technique is a beautiful amalgamation of outdoor and modern. Designers such as Dior, Fendi and Nicole Miller all utilised this print within their collections. Paisley prints are here to stay.

Psychedelic Pop

Psychedelic prints have been trending all over. Designer brands such as MSGM and Louis Vuitton are tapping into bold, bright and brash by experimenting with this technique’s placement to create collaged effects for maximum appeal.

 

 Style

Underwear-Outerwear

This particular style is a casual twist to the OG corset trend wave that began last year. Stay home style isn’t all slacks and cosy knits; delicate lingerie layering and bralette-as-tops hones as the ideal add-on to jazz up any outfit. For the more conservative consumer, layering up intimates-inspired or even swim bralettes over shirts or dresses offers an easy and accessible entry point into this trend.

Slouchy Fit

The perfect antidote to ace #stayhome style – Yes! Slouchy is back, and it comes in many shapes and sizes. Explore oversized silhouettes to maximise comfort along with feeling right-at-home. They’re an ideal look when you’re doing low-key stuff like hanging at home, taking a stroll, or going to the grocery store. Pro tip: if a jean isn’t designed to look super baggy, simply size up for a slouchy look.

Midriff Floss

Exposing the midriff conjures up a strong sense of #90s nostalgia, they have the potential to make even the simplest basic outfit, feel fresh but chic. Playing with monotone colours and layering allows for a more accessible take on this risqué trend – artfully reimagined to swap with cut-out and strappy details in an outfit.

Wed, 16 Dec 2020 00:08:53 +0000 https://jfwonline.com/article/8-waterproof-makeup-and-beauty-hacks-that-will-keep-you-splash-proof-throughout-the-monsoon-season/ 8 Waterproof Makeup and Beauty Hacks that Will Keep You Splash-Proof Throughout The Monsoon Season! https://jfwonline.com/article/8-waterproof-makeup-and-beauty-hacks-that-will-keep-you-splash-proof-throughout-the-monsoon-season/ For all makeup lovers, monsoon is a time of extreme caution, for the rains can spoil your makeup in just under a minute if you don’t take good care. Here is a guide to choose the right makeup tools this season.

If you think your summer makeup staples are good enough for the monsoons, think again. Owing to the humidity in the air and the constant showers of course, adjusting your makeup to suit the weather will go a long way. Also, the colours of monsoons are way different, so you don’t want to use summery colours on your skin this season.

  1. Monsoon brings with it a lot of humidity. Depending on your skin type, use an astringent or a toner to cleanse your skin after using a face wash. It is also advisable to rub your face with ice cubes before putting on the makeup, so that you sweat less and the makeup stays longer.
  2. Instead of regular foundation, opt for mineral powder foundations. These will not run down your face and they will also ensure you don’t have an oily look. If you have too many blemishes which won’t get covered up by powder, then go for light, oil-free foundations, or just use a good concealer.
  3. For the monsoon, it is best to maintain a nude look. Line your eyes with waterproof liner, and use light pinks and nude colours on your lips to keep the makeup to a bare minimum, yet enough to get you good looking.
  4. Here’s what not to do: using mascara. Unless absolutely necessary, keep away from using mascara as much as possible, even if it is water proof, just to be on the safer side. You don’t want to risk looking like you’ve just cried a million tears. Also, stay away from glossy lipsticks, or lip glosses. Matte is best for monsoon time.
  5. Monsoon time is a nightmare for most of us when it comes to managing our hair. Keeping your hair frizz free is quite a daunting task, especially when you have to run to work or college early in the morning. Invest in a good serum, and use it regularly to keep your hair smooth. Do not go overboard with the serum, because it will only leave you with flat, oily hair. Use it in just the right amount according to the length of your hair.
  6. It is best to not leave your hair loose during the monsoon season, at least when you’re out and about. Always keep scrunchies and headbands with you to put up your hair to minimise the damage.
  7. When it comes to makeup for the night, you can use deeper colours for an elegant look. But never use the same colours for the day. Remember, pastels work best for the day during the monsoon season.
  8. A lot of us neglect our makeup applicators. You just might want to rethink that during monsoon. There are many chances of growth of fungus due to humidity. It is therefore very essential to maintain hygiene when handling your makeup applicators and ensure that you always clean them and keep them in a dry place.

CHRISTMAS CHOCOLATE COOKIES:

The perfect Christmas cookies you can ever bake to get into the best of the moods! These treats are going to be loved by every sweet tooth in the household and I’m sure it could also make great Christmas favors.

Makes: approximately 24 cookies

INGREDIENTS:

 FOR THE BISCUITS:

Soft butter – 250g

Caster sugar- 150g

Cocoa powder- 40g

Plain flour- 300g

Bicarbonate soda- ½ teaspoon

Baking powder- 1 teaspoon

FOR THE FESTIVE TOPPING :

Cocoa powder- 2 tablespoons

Icing sugar- 175g

Boiling water- 60 ml

Vanilla extract – 1 teaspoon 

Christmas sprinkles

Method:

 

  1. Preheat the oven to 170 degree C and line a baking tray with parchment paper
  2. Cream the butter and caster sugar in a bowl and when you have a light, soft whipped mixture, beat in the 40g of cocoa powder and when that’s mixed in, beat in the flour with the bicarb and baking powder.
  3. The mixture is going to look very soft and sticky, so pinch off pieces about the size of a large walnut, roll them into balls, the slightly flatten into fat discs as you place them, well-spaced on your baking sheet. (About 12 at a time)
  4. Bake each batch for 15 minutes; even though the biscuits won’t look done, they will continue to cook as it cools. They will look slightly cracked on the top and that’s exactly what we are looking for.
  5. Remove the baking tray to a cold surface and let it sit for 15 minutes before transferring the biscuits to a wire rack, with a piece of newspaper under it to catch drops of the glaze while pouring.
  6. To make the topping, put the cocoa powder, icing sugar, water and vanilla extract into a small saucepan and whisk over a low heat until everything’s smoothly combined. Take off the heat for 10 minutes.
  7.  When the biscuits are cool, drizzle each one with a tablespoon of chocolate glaze to glue the sprinkles.
  8. After you ice 5 biscuits, scatter with some of the Christmas sprinkles, and continue until all the biscuits are topped. If you ice them all before sprinkling, you will find that the cocoa glue has dried and the sprinkles won’t stick.

GARLIC KNOTS:

All the pizza and garlic bread lover’s heaven!

Ingredients:

Homemade dough: 

All-purpose flour- 3 and ½ cups (440g)

Salt- ¾ teaspoon

Olive oil- 2 tablespoon

Parsley – 2 Tablespoon (optional after baking)

Grated parmesan cheese- ¼ cup (optional after baking)

Method:

1) Prepare the dough: whisk the warm water, yeast, and granulated sugar in a bowl and cover and allow to rest for 10 minutes.

2) If the mixture has frothed, this means your yeast has been activated. Add the olive oil, salt and the flour and knead the dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead using lightly floured hands to avoid sticking of the dough. Knead the dough for about 7-8 minutes until it’s soft. Poke it with your finger- if it slowly bounces back, your dough is ready to rise.

 

3) lightly grease a large bowl with oil or nonstick spray. Place the dough into the bowl, turning it to coat all sides with the oil. Cover the bowl with a plastic wrap or a clean kitchen towel. Allow the dough to rise at room temperature for 1-2 hours or until doubled in size.

4) Shape the dough:  when the dough is ready, punch it down to release the air. Using floured hands on a lightly floured work surface, shape the dough into a 16×5 inch long log. Using. Very sharp knife, slice into 16 1-inch strips. Roll each strip into 8 -inch ropes. Tie each into knots. Tuck the two ends of the knot underneath. Arrange the knots on 2 lined baking trays with parchment paper.

5) lightly cover the shaped knots and let them rest for 30 minutes to rise. (They will fluffy up producing softer rolls)

6) Preheat oven 204 degree C for 10 minutes.

7) Topping: stir the melted butter, minced garlic, Italian herbs, and salt together. Brush on the knots and reserve some for when the knots come out of the oven.

8) bake for about 18-23 minutes or until golden brown on the top. Remove them from the oven and brush the warm knots with remaining garlic butter. Sprinkle with parsley and parmesan and serve hot with a dip.

After reporting Aishwarya Rai and Ramya Krishnan were considered to reprise the role of Tabu but no official confirmations were made as yet. Infact, fans were excited to watch Prashanth and Aishwarya Rai together onscreen after a very long time. However, all these rumours have now been rubbished. Simran will be reprising the role of Tabu in the Tamil remake of Andha Dhun.

Confirming the news, Simran stated, “Andhadhun was a landmark film in Indian cinema and reached audiences in different regions. Playing Tabu’s role is a huge responsibility. It is a bold, yet challenging role. But I am looking forward to essaying the part in the Tamil remake. I want to see myself in this new avatar, and I’m quite excited. It’s a character that will be seen throughout the film. I am confident that this will be another feather in my hat.”

The film, directed by JJ Frederick of Ponmagal Vandhaal fame. Prashanth who will be seen reprising the role of Ayushmann Khurana from the original has been sincerely prepping for the role especially weight and piano classes.

After films like Jodi and Parthen Rasithen Simran and Prashanth will be seen together after a very long time. Talking about the chemistry, Simran said, “I am happy about working with Prashanth again. I am also looking forward to working with Fredrick, whose Ponmagal Vandhaal was fantastic. This remake, too, will be made in such a way that it suits the Tamil audiences. We will start our reading sessions soon, and are likely to begin shooting by early 2021.”

But that did not stop her from carefully curating a career there anyway, with path-defining roles, ranging from an effortlessly cool con artist, an ambitious rebel to a fairytale heroine and everything in-between. In conversation with Sruthi Ravinder, Ritu Varma reflects on life, cinema, and “living in the moment”!

Looking back at the year that’s been…

Ritu Varma’s year began hopeful. “Honestly, 2020 started off really well!” she says. I was shooting for a Telugu film in the UK the whole of January. Then I got back to India and started shooting another Telugu film with Nani. Then Kannum Kannum Kollaiyadithaal (KKK) released and it turned out to be a super hit. I had a lot of expectations out of this year as I thought for the first time I’d have multiple releases. I was simultaneously working on four different films; this was going to be my year! But unfortunately Covid happened, followed by the lockdown and everything just paused.”

Ritu is however, a glass-half-full person: “But again it taught us all a lot of important lessons.  I’ve learnt to appreciate things a lot more now. Somehow I think we just needed that time to re-evaluate our lives and that’s what happened with me as well.”

Waiting for the right scripts! 

Ritu is unafraid to confess that she has very specific standards and principles when it comes to making her film decisions. “I have been very selective in choosing scripts from the beginning. If you see the number of films I have done, the count is not a lot. I think it is more to do with the fact that I am an accidental actor and I would only want to do films that I would enjoy watching myself.” Fair enough!

She is also quick to admit that being choosy has its setbacks, temporary though they may be. “Post Pelli Choopulu I felt that people would expect certain things from me and the kind of films I started getting would change. Unfortunately, for a period of time that was not happening. I was not getting the right kind of scripts and a couple of Tamil films I started like Dhruva Nachitram… (Click here to read the whole interview

In conversation with Radhika Ramesh, Aishwarya talks about her journey at such a young age and shattering stereotypes. 

 

Hailing from Bangalore, Aishwarya was expected to follow the predictable path towards engineering or medicine. But, knowing she was different, she went ahead and chose her own journey. Here she is now, a world champion who has made her parents and her country proud.

 

What was your childhood like?

I come from a very conservative family where career goals did not expand beyond becoming a doctor or an engineer. Even so, I was always a very outspoken young lady and more of an outdoor-sy child. Eventually, my parents understood my passion for motorcycles and things took a turn for the better. 

Tell us a little bit about your career graph.

I started riding motorcycles as a passion. Riding gave me a sense of freedom and I felt alive every time I was on a bike. Once I had a travelled on motorcycles over a period of time, I started training at Apex racing academy for circuit racing after which I started winning championships. Due to my performance in 2017, TVS Racing signed me on as a factory racer which helped me pursue racing professionally.

In 2018, it was reported that you had crashed on the final day of the Baja Aragon rally which changed a lot for you. Tell us about the scenario and what went through your mind then.

It was a life threatening accident and as the saying goes: “What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger”. It has not been easy mentally and physically to bounce back from this, but being an athlete has given me a way of life which helped me cope with this situation.

You are just 24 years old and you have won a world title already. Take us through that journey.

I received a proper form of training for my future championships. I was initially trained to understand what navigation was and the technicality behind it. After that, my training sessions would be four to five days a week. Then there was an endurance training to develop strength and conditioning. There are cognitive games and mental conditioning to develop stability. Eventually, after all this, there is a special training depending on the country that conducts the competition.

How did you feel when you grabbed the title of being the first ever Indian athlete to win a world title in motorsports? 

I felt elated to bear the Indian flag on international platforms and be the first Indian athlete to win a world championship on motorcycles at the FIM Baja Rally Cup; 1st in the women’s division and 2nd among juniors. My parents teared up seeing me hold the flag, the pride of India. I think that is when I completely shattered the stereotypes even in their hearts.

What’s in store for you now?

I am currently training for the world championship in 2020.

Aishwarya, you have been a striking example for many women out there who have been aspiring to succeed in unique fields. What would you like to tell these women?

Firstly, enrol yourself in a training school to gain knowledge about racing. Secondly, along the way of following your dreams, do not let nay-sayers get you down. I did not listen to them and today, I am where I am because of my confidence. So do what your heart says and ignore everything negative that aims to deter you.

Sat, 12 Dec 2020 00:20:40 +0000 https://jfwonline.com/article/exclusive-costume-designer-ezhilmathy-about-her-work-in-super-deluxe-and-importance-of-south-india-in-fashion/ EXCLUSIVE: Costume Designer Ezhilmathy About Her Work in Super Deluxe and Importance of South-India in Fashion! https://jfwonline.com/article/exclusive-costume-designer-ezhilmathy-about-her-work-in-super-deluxe-and-importance-of-south-india-in-fashion/ Some are born creative, some strive on with discipline; and then there’s costume designer Ezhilmathy, who senses the importance of both. She is centred, she is intelligent, but most importantly, she is extremely talented. In conversation with Radhika Ramesh, Ezhilmathy talks about her work in Super Deluxe, inclusivity and more.

Ezhilmathy was the costume designer in Thiyagaraja Kumararaja’s Super Deluxe starring Vijay Sethupathi, Samantha Akkineni, Fahadh Faasil, Mysskin and Ramya Krishnan. From using battery prints on an Ice Cream man’s shirt to a scrunchie on Samantha’s wrist, she is one of those rare designers who depicts characters as credible, yet deep. 

“I was always interested in teaching.”

Ezhilmathy started out her career as a physiotherapist and then her interest grew towards teaching children with special needs. She has even headed schools and has strongly believed in inclusive education. Ezhilmathy pursued her Masters in Inclusive Education in the United Kingdom. “I get bored with what I do quite easily. I initially grew interest towards physiotherapy, but I got distracted towards teaching. I have been doing all this, but styling has always been very interesting for me,” she says. Ezhilmathy believes that teaching the children at Vidya Sagar School, Chennai, was the right turn in her life. “I initially was roped in for doing physiotherapy for the children, but my passion deviated towards teaching,” she adds. Till date, she remains a teacher and a trainer for the children although she designs for huge projects today. 

“I work only with Thiyagaraja Kumararaja.”

The way she has impeccably styled each character in the film Super Deluxe added to the success of movie. However, here’s some new information: this spectacular costume designer works only for the Aaranya Kaandam director. “I have earlier worked for ad shoots but Kumararaja’s projects keep me occupied, she adds. Ezhilmathy owns a clothing brand named Stoker. From bags to clothes, team Stoker designed it all for the film. “I have always wanted to build a school of what?, but I just did not know how. That is when the idea of starting my own brand cropped up and that was Kumararaja’s idea honestly. It sounded fair too,” she says. 

Talking about her own school, she says, “The design’s ready and plans are coming into place. So, now we will just have to wait and see.”

“Kumararaja’s attention to detail helped me design.”

When Kumararaja met Ezhilmathy, he had every detail ready for her. The entire script, narrative, intricate detail was read with him. She truly believes that Kumararaja is one of those very few directors who has a keen eye for details. “He is someone who visualises everything and that really helped. He just knew how everything had to be,” she adds. Throughout the film we could see hues of blue and red set as the colour palette. Talking about how she carried it throughout the film, Ezhil says, “We began drawing while visualising each character. For example, Samantha’s character is portrayed to be an art student and she is from a middle-class background so she is seen wearing a simple T-shirt with a skirt but as the character develops we can see Sam given more layers like a shirt, a scarf around the neck or the head and a rubber band on her wrist. With Fahadh, he is an aspiring actor so there was a lot of bling added to his look. From a green-coloured watch to a ring, he was done up in comfortable clothing.” 

“Vijay Sethupathi’s character was the hardest to style.”

“He is such an amazing man and to give him a completely feminine look was undoubtedly a huge challenge,” adds Ezhilmathy as she walks us through the journey of transformation from Vijay Sethupathi to Shilpa, a transgender woman. The saree that Sethupathi had worn initially was a pink one. Ezhilmathy says that there were only three sarees made and used throughout the entire film. “As the depth of the character increases, the shade of blue and the patterns in the Saree vary too,” adds the designer. 

Vijay Sethupathi had once mentioned how the Saree was one of his inspirations to completely transform into the amazing Shilpa. On asking how she feels about this, she says, “It was my work. So, this only means that I have done my job right, that’s all (laughs).” From the wig to the accessories, everything was carefully curated for the film. 

A detailed piece of work for each character

Ezhilmathy is a true craftsman in bringing back simplicity into the films. Simplicity is the only way to explain the complexity and depth of any character. “The four boys in the film were very casually dressed in a way that no character looked stereotyped. All the sarees of Ramya Krishnan and Vijay Sethupathi’s sarees were Kochampalli cotton since I do not use silk in my clothes. Kochampalli cotton is not very easy to find and on top of that, I designed and printed all of those,” adds the stylist. 

There is an ice-cream seller in the film whose shirt was designed by Ezhil, but what’s exciting about it is the creativity. “The shirt the seller wears in the film actually has print made from battery. You reverse a battery and print on it. Kumararaja wanted a block but I suggested that we not go for a block print, it wouldn’t gel with the character if it is a small role,” says Ezhil. 

When it comes to the Gaji Balaji character, she describes the character to be a different kind of intelligence. “He has no big qualms about life but the way he looks and describes the universe explains to us the depth of his character. So, he was given the famous one-sided cat T-shirt,” she adds. 

“With Mysskin’s character, we had to show what he believed, so he is seen wearing an all-black all the time and he was not to wear any footwear. It may look simple but simplicity is the most complex to understand,” says Ezhil.

Be it the alien’s unusual, yet recognisable clothing or be it bringing back the rubber band around the wrist trend, Ezhil dressed up each character with its development in mind. 

“We would wash all the clothes constantly so that it wouldn’t look new. The story is a sudden occurrence getting in the way of daily lives of people so we cannot show them wearing new clothes, that is not how it works for us (laughs),” adds Ezhil. 

The future for Ezhilmathi

Ezhilmathy loves a good storyline with terrific characters, which she says, is the reason she feels that Thiyagaraja kumararaja is the director she prefers working with. But, what about the future? “To me, the present is everything. I leave everything to the moment. I work hard for the moment, I think for the moment. My work should always keep me occupied and that is exactly why I prefer working with Kumararaja; he is a handful (laughs).”

Sat, 12 Dec 2020 00:05:27 +0000 https://jfwonline.com/article/exclusive-sillu-karupatti-director-halitha-shameen-reveals-about-her-journey-into-cinema/ Exclusive: Sillu karupatti Director Halitha Shameen Reveals About Her Journey into Cinema! https://jfwonline.com/article/exclusive-sillu-karupatti-director-halitha-shameen-reveals-about-her-journey-into-cinema/ From cinematography and editing to costume designing and direction, her talents only continue to grow. Halitha Shameem who made it look easy, reveals to JFW, the actual grind behind it all. 

Born to supportive parents, Halitha’s career was an open road from the jump. She began learning and understanding about direction from the age of 16, worked as an assistant director under several magnificent directors and today, stands tall with her own style well developed. After Sillu Karupatti, Halitha is ready to treat her audience with some of her finest works yet. 

Picking up the pen

With 2 working parents, Halitha found a lot of time to write and soon realized her love for composing poetry. “I think poetry provided me with a lot of strength. Writing always does that to you, right? I was in boarding school, mostly a loner and I would utilize my time to write. My thoughts have been my only companion,” quips Halitha. 

She says that this time that she had for herself made her creatively strong, which has helped her in her journey as a director. “I was well aware of my thoughts and I would use this awareness to my advantage. I remember my first poetry; it was about a tongue. Eventually my teachers started noticing my writing capacity in Tamil. I studied in a school dominated by Malayalam and my principal, would take my help to write down his speech in Tamil despite having Tamil teachers in school. I was looked at like a celebrity,” says Halitha smirking. 

This made Halitha decide her next stop – Chennai.

Crossroads and choices

Halitha came to Chennai to pursue her dream as a filmmaker after all the encouragement she received. “The time I reached Chennai was the time when huge radio channels like Radio Mirchi, Suryan FM were all setting up. So, I would request the radio jockeys to permit me to write content for them. These RJs would in return encourage me to do better and do more,” she reveals. 

Halitha’s parents, however, wanted her to earn a mainstream degree to secure her future if her writing dreams were to fail. However, Halitha was bent on pursuing a degree that would help her career, so she completed her Bachelor’s degree in Visual Communication. “I I simultaneously tried joining as an Assistant Director. I would call up various production houses and directors’ offices in the hope of getting hold of an opportunity. Many would insist on me acting but direction was my sole passion,” says Halitha. 

The AD experiences.

Halitha joined director/actor Samudhirakani’s team as an assistant director. “I knew he would not take me in as an assistant director. So I informed them I was a lyricist and became a part of the team. When I was given an opportunity to read out my so-called lyrics to him, he had a very straight face and absolutely no reaction to it. He was too sweet to say anything to discourage a young girl but I sensed that and finally broke open the truth to him, that I wanted to join his team as an assistant director,” Halitha recalls. 

The major league directors whom she approached suggested alternate career options for her within the film industry. “I was very young and fragile. So, on a set if a director was shouting and swearing, I would just flee the sets. All that came to a standstill when I joined as an assistant director under the director duo Pushkar and Gayathri for the film Oramm Po. They would involve me in some serious discussions, take in my suggestions and made me feel like an integral part of the team,” says a grateful Halitha. 

Eventually she assisted Samudhirakani in the film Nadodigal and director Mysskin for the film Nandalala. “They are all directors with different schools of thought and each of them taught me something very valuable,” says Halitha. Mirchi Siva’s Va Quarter Cutting was the last film Halitha worked on as an Associate Director. 

Captain of her own ship

After taking up complete charge as an Associate, Halitha was confident to now become an independent director. Poovarasam Peepee was her first film but it took her sometime to understand her audience and her first film did not perform well. “It unfortunately did not receive the mileage it should have. But the young talent from that film deserved another chance, given their performance. That is when I decided that once they turned young teens, I would do the film Minmini with them,” admits Halitha. 

Picking up momentum

“My idea of Sillu Karupatti was to not romanticize anything that usually is. I wanted to showcase love as blooming in normal places like a doctor’s house or a park, someplace which doesn’t seem outlandish,” says Halitha. 

Meanwhile, cinematographer Abhinandan and actor Siddharth persuaded her to write a story and Halitha had decided to come up with just one episode back then which was The Turtles starring Leela Samson. Halitha says, “They, however, felt that the intensity was very strong. That is when I decided that maybe I should channel this intensity into a commercial film for my audience. Initially I had written only two episodes, this and The Pink Bag. Eventually it developed to two more.”

A big banner

Sillu Karuppati was produced by 2D Production which is the home banner of superstars Suriya and Jyothika, a power couple the south loves. 

Jyothika had talked about how she truly loved and believed in Sillu Karupatti at the JFW Movie Awards and Halitha says there’s more to it: “Apparently, they loved the film and had said so to my team, but I wanted to personally hear from them. I was busy shooting Aeley when the screening happened so I was unaware of their reaction.”

She continues, “Finally Jyothika ma’am spoke to me and told me she enjoyed the depth of these love stories. At the 50th day success party, I met Suriya sir and realized that he too was a huge fan of the film. He had also been keeping up with my Aeley-related progress! I was humbled, to say the least.”

Coming soon…

Halitha has some brilliant projects lined up for her. Her next film Aeley will have a theatrical release. Further, her film Minmini has 20 days of shoot left but she has an ongoing OTT project she wishes to finish before she resumes the shoot of Minmini.

Fri, 11 Dec 2020 23:55:57 +0000 https://jfwonline.com/article/exclusive-anchor-dd-on-future-of-television-and-entertainment-industry/ Exclusive: Anchor DD On Future Of Television and Entertainment Industry! https://jfwonline.com/article/exclusive-anchor-dd-on-future-of-television-and-entertainment-industry/ This lockdown has not been easy on several businesses including the television industry. In conversation with Radhika Ramesh, renowned anchor Dhivyadharshini talks about her passion for anchoring, her journey through the television industry and how the industry is faring in the current situation. 

Indian television anchor Dhivyadharshini fondly known as DD by her Tamil fans is loved by all especially for her lively expressiveness and charisma. Unlike many businesses, the television industry may have taken as hard a hit, being one of the only sources of entertainment in a time like this. However, with regards to shooting new episodes and live daily shows, it has been quite a challenge what with having to maintain highest sanitization standards, social distancing and wearing masks. DD spills some beans on what’s happening in the tele-field. 

The audience favourite

Dhivyadharshini made her initial debut as an actress with the film Nala Dhamayandhi the Kamal Haasan production. Eventually she was seen in a couple of Tamil serials as well. Her stellar performances kickstarted her career as a host in Vijay Television. In the year 2014, DD had her own talk show titled Koffee with DD. This gifted anchor has been unstoppable ever since. “I am always grateful to people for all the love I have received. Whether I do shows or not, I still receive a lot of love and that is what truly keeps me going,” says the anchor. DD has been anchoring for the past 22 years and this has been her one true love. But ever since there has been a lockdown, things have changed.

On a safer set

The lockdown has not been easy on the economy and every industry is struggling to pick up. “The entire world is going through this not just the different industries. So right now, it is not an individual’s problem anymore. Together when an entire population is hoping and praying desperately, good is bound to happen and I always believe in that sort of powerful energy. I know things are not great right now but I believe in the fact that you are not strong until being strong is the only option left. Despite the consequences, we have to lift our heads up and work harder than ever to float,” states a strong and confident DD. 

DD says that several shows are taking stringent precautions in order to prioritize safety. “But more than a particular crew taking precautions, every individual must be cautious for their health and that of others, that’s crucial,” says DD. 

The lockdown has now been relaxed and shooting has had to go on with restricted crew members. However, certain shows were shot even before that with much less crew members. The passionate anchor says, “Not a day goes by when I desperately want to just begin shooting. We even shot an episode or two of Enkitta Modhadhe but then it just couldn’t resume. Now all we have to do is be patient and wait.” 

 

Coping with the lockdown

Although DD has been receiving all her fan love with or without shooting, she says that she dearly misses her shooting days. “Work is my addiction so being deprived of that, drained me mentally and emotionally. I do miss my shoot days terribly and can’t wait to get back on sets. However, considering what other people are undergoing as lesser privileged… I know this is nothing,” DD states. 

But how did the actress-turned-anchor get accustomed to sitting at home as a mandatory measure? “It was mentally very chaotic. The uncertainty was very taxing I must say, but when the instructions were briefed from time to time, I found it best follow it word for word and just simply adhere to it.”

The future of Television

Change is the only constant in this world and like any other, a lot will change in this field as well. Dhivyadharshini believes that change is the best way to evolve and become better, assuring that from just mere scripts and songs to reality shows, the tele-arena has seen a massive growth. “TV will adapt itself to the new norms and from that, new ideologies are bound to take shape which is always good. The show will go on, it won’t stop for anything. Like Ulaganayagan Kamal sir always says, the entertainment industry will slowly contain itself into smaller screens which it already is drastically. Everyone will adapt to these new changes and television will see another successful run after this pandemic, beginning a new era,” concludes DD.

Fri, 11 Dec 2020 06:48:27 +0000 https://jfwonline.com/article/exlusive-karnatakas-first-woman-ips-officer-roopa-d-moudgil-on-being-a-law-enforcement-paragon/ EXLUSIVE: Karnataka’s first woman IPS officer, Roopa D Moudgil on Being a Law Enforcement Paragon! https://jfwonline.com/article/exlusive-karnatakas-first-woman-ips-officer-roopa-d-moudgil-on-being-a-law-enforcement-paragon/  By SHIVANI ARORA

 

Back in 2017, when the entire media flashed headlines about the special treatment being given to Sasikala in the Bengaluru Central Prison, the name of a woman cop caught the spotlight for having been fearless enough to expose these discrepancies. That fearless cop was none other than D Roopa Moudgil, the then DIG (Prisons) who is currently serving as the first woman Home Secretary of Karnataka!

In the making

“I grew up in a small mofussil town called Davangere in Karnataka and both my parents worked so I grew up knowing I would be a working woman. My younger sister Rohini and I were raised in a rather liberal upbringing,” reflects Roopa. She was just in class 3 when her father told her she must grow up to be an IAS or IPS officer and explained the potential of these services. Roopa did not just excel in studies but also learnt Bharatnatyam for many years, loved singing and took part in all extracurricular activities in school and college.

 

She naturally took to NCC and representing her state as the best cadet in the Republic Day parade in New Delhi made her realise that her calling was in the khaki uniform. “Immediately after the parade we had an interactive session with Dr Kiran Bedi at the garrison parade grounds and it was so inspiring to meet her and listen to her that I decided that I surely wanted to join the police service,” recalls Roopa. 

 

The test of fire

While pursuing her graduation and post graduation in psychology and sociology she continued to be part of NCC and also kept preparing for the UPSC exams. She cleared the exams with flying colours and got the All India 47th rank in the UPSC exam and was allotted her home cadre. Even during the police training she came 5th in her batch training alongside the boys in the activities. Sharp shooting became her forte, and she dominated all the competition therein. 

Her gritty spirit and active energy was too distinct to go unnoticed. Naturally, she was entrusted with the most challenging of postings, and each one of them only made Roopa tougher. She consistently worked on the principle that no one, not even a powerful politician, is above the law. 

Standing for truth

In her first posting, she was given the task of executing a non bailable warrant against the then Chief Minister of Madhya Pradesh Ms Uma Bharti in relation to a court case in Hubbali. 

“Most of my postings have been demanding but I have never been afraid of doing my duty for fear of being punished or just because I am a woman. Whether it was arresting an ex-minister for abetment of violence including burning buses or recalling 216 excess armed men kept unauthorizedly by 81 politicians or withdrawing SUV’s maintained by an ex-Chief Minister of Karnataka even after he was no longer in power. When I was posted in a new district called Yadgir they didn’t have proper housing facilities and I stayed in a village with my husband and my daughter started her schooling there,” says Roopa. Roopa trained in Hindustani classical music during this posting in Yadgir; she has even taken on playback singing for a Kannada movie and also released a music video to the tune of “Tora Man Darpan Kehlaye” on Women’s Day in 2018. 

Baring open lawlessness

Her 17 working day tenure in the Bengaluru Central prison and what she exposed at that time drew so much media attention to her. “I was posted as DIG (Prisons) and I reported there on 23rd June 2017. Within the first few days I began receiving complaints of drug peddling and medical officers being assaulted in the prison but when I asked for the report I did not receive anything for almost 10 days and I decided to make a surprise visit to see things for myself. I was shocked with all that I saw and decided it was my duty to report all of it,” says Roopa.

She saw special privileges being given to Sasikala in prison. Although an ordinary prisoner she was given 5 rooms along with a full corridor, special food was being cooked for her and she was not in prison clothes which was usually a white saree. Sasikala was also meeting visitors in a special room which had revolving chairs, a table and no CCTV camera. It was also reported that a huge sum of money, about 2 crores, was exchanged to give her these privileges. Roopa did her duty of reporting but a defamation case was slapped on her by her senior and she was immediately transferred out. 

The balancing act

“These times were very difficult as I was juggling between answering colleagues to answering the media who had so many questions based on all versions they were hearing. It was my husband Munish Moudgil who not just stood by me but also guided me on how I should handle the whole situation,” says Roopa. Her husband Munish Moudgil, a graduate of IIT Mumbai, now an IAS officer is currently heading the Covid War Room in Bengaluru. They have two children Anagha and Roshil. 

 

Always thriving in gruelling schedules

Roopa was serving as the IG (Railways) when the Coronavirus struck and the lockdown happened. Her husband dove headfirst into managing the Covid War Room and spent even weekends away at work while Roopa managed work and home together effectively. “When trains resumed and the first Rajdhani came, the passengers did not know they would have to go into quarantine and they began protesting. I immediately plunged into action and arranged 4 additional bogies in the Rajdhani that was going back to Delhi and helped these passengers go back home,” says Roopa. 

When the Chief Secretary formed teams to check on hospitals treating Covid patients, Roopa went with her team comprising IAS officers Harsh Gupta and Ashok Gowda to three hospitals and found that the hospitals were over charging patients. The hospitals were immediately ordered to refund patients and 22 patients got a refund of around 24 lakhs. 

Resilient in any role 

She is now posted as the first woman Home Secretary of Karnataka. Roopa has been transferred almost 42 times but in every posting she has proved to be the best. “As officers, we are given so much security. Why should we be afraid or be bound by the chains of these politicians? When we break free from the chains of these politicians and serve to uphold the law, we become a force to reckon with. We are drawing salaries from the ex-chequer and are here to serve the common man and that’s why I believe in always keeping my office open and being accessible,” states a fearless Roopa!

She truly has been a force to reckon with and heads turn when people hear her name! Rightly touted as “Lady Singham” and “Karnataka’s Kiran Bedi,” Roopa Moudgil is overturning corruption, one operation at a time!

Deepa Venkat Narrates her Journey as a Voice Artist! https://jfwonline.com/article/the-voice-of-nayanthara-jyothika-simran-and-many-more-deepa-venkat-narrates-her-journey-as-a-voice-artist/ It takes a strong or a special voice to infuse a deep connection and bring out the full essence of any role or character we fall in love with in big screens. In conversation with Sruthi Ravinder, Deepa Venkat looks back on her journey as voice actor.  

She was the voice behind the driven headmistress Geetha Rani in Raatchasi, the distressed yet brave game designer Swapna in Game Over, and very recently the godly voice of Amman we all caught glimpses of from the trailer of Nayanthara’s upcoming film Mookuthi Amman. Deepa Venkat began dreaming of acting as a little girl, while she was dubbing for Disney cartoons. Soon, she found herself in the world of radio and prime time television, all the while holding on to first love, dubbing. 

Having just finished dubbing for Mookuthi Amman, Deepa checks her phone for a text of appreciation from Nayanthara. “Nayanthara is very particular about the output. Either she voices her own films or as you can see now, she’s comfortable having me dub.  She watches the whole movie and texts me her feedback.  Sometimes she’ll ask for few changes and will sit with me for corrections. You will never find her compromising for anything less than perfect.” 

Another recent project Deepa just finished voicing is Jyothika for her upcoming Ra Saravan’s film. “It was a Thanjavur slang I had to adopt.  I’m always quite nervous when it comes to slang. The director knew the accent very well so he helped me with it.”

According to Deepa, dubbing for a movie takes a minimum of three sittings with five or longer hours per day. Even though you are not on camera, you have to still act the part physically to effect the right voice. “With any film, the process starts with auditions. Even though the director would have heard my voice for the same actress in a different film, they will have a set of questions.  Every movie is different so the first step is always the voice test. For this they play an intense or emotional scene from the movie and observe my voice. I usually watch the whole scene first and get the outline of the role. I don’t have to hear the whole story but just enough to understand the character, what she does, where she’s from and so on.” 

Once the voice test is done, they move on to rehearsals. “I’ll try to match with the heroine’s original voice first, then I’ll give variations. All of this is recorded and then one is selected. We move forward with the chosen tone and then I voice the character from the beginning of the movie. “

Different movie, different feel

While Deepa has voiced so many characters in her long spanning career, she claims each movie is a completely different and a one-of-a-kind experience. “Game Over was a very interesting experience.There was so much in the film, the whole set up was very different. They were recording with three mics. I wasn’t allowed any jewellery because even the smallest noise caused a hindrance. They had to pin my thali back. Shankar Sir’s movie dubbing is also a wonderful feel. The set-up is extravagant.”

“Hollywood movies are again a different story. Disney has always had a very strict protocol. The scripts have to be approved by the same language speaking person sitting in the Walt Disney office.  They will also have to approve the voice artist. Even when we dubbed for Terminator and Dark Knight, we weren’t allowed to take our mobile phones inside. The whole recording session is video recorded. We don’t even be able to see the scenes we are dubbing for visually.” 

Chance of a lifetime 

Deepa started off as a child dubbing artist. “I used to dub for cartoons when I was in the eighth grade.These Walt Disney cartoons like Chip and Dale, Rescue Rangers and others were getting dubbed from English to Hindi and a portion of it was happening in Chennai. There was a very small number of Hindi speaking voice artists in Chennai that time. Through a mutual friend we were able to set up a shot and that’s how it started,” she recalls.

Early aspirations

“I was in Mumbai till my 3rd grade and then came back to the city I was born in – Chennai. My entire school and college years were completed in correspondence. I was doing serials at that time.  My parents were very particular that I complete my school education.  I got a lot of movie offers that I had to decline then, and I would argue with my parents that it was unfair,” she looks back with a laugh. “But they were always very supportive of me, be it acting or dubbing,” she adds. 

The grind is real

After a point I lost the interest in securing the central role in movies. I was very comfortable acting in serials and being a part of prime time television. I felt more at home. We knew the kind of roles we were playing; there was scope for performance, we had good directors, good stories, and good companies. They were like schools that taught us everything.”

Deepa is not likely to forget the strain she was put through about a decade ago: “It was a lot of hardwork; we used to work on tight budgets. Sometimes when we are shooting on location we wouldn’t have proper rooms/restrooms in which to change. There wasn’t much by way of advertising either. Still, we managed to reach a lot of people and made household names. Nowadays, people work a lot more comfortably.”

She soon felt the workload catch up to her though. “At a point of time I was doing 4-5 serials. I started losing out on movie and other dubbing offers. But after a point, when it started getting very repetitive, I decided to stop.”

RADIO Calling! 

Then came marriage for Deepa. As she settled into her new life, a new venture beckoned. “One day I got a call from Hello FM. The CEO wanted me as a stand-in for an RJ who broke her leg. It was only for a month for a two-hour morning show. I didn’t know much about radio but I wasn’t doing anything else then, so I agreed. It was a struggle for a month but I kept at it. It became like a new subject of study because speaking every day for two hours was not easy. I did that show for nine years. It picked up very well; I had a huge listener base.”

She soon understood the tasks and challenges of radio: “I would go in early in the morning and prepare talking points. It’s all live so you have to think on your feet while adhering to the show’s duration, speak in Tamil, and not offend anybody.” Still, she found it an endearing experience. “I got to interact with a lot of people from different fields. Radio means a lot to me. Made some really good friends there too, and if given a chance I’d love to return.”

After all that reflection, Deepa’s parting words ring clear and strong: “Each field has its own its own hardships, rewards, pitfalls everything. I think a lot goes into preparing for it and then bracing yourself for the rest.”

Deepa recently starred in “En Veetu Samayal,” a cooking show in JFW’s new food channel Spice, where she presents some of the most lip-smacking delicacies for you to try out at your home.

  • Tell us a little about your childhood!

I was born in Palakkad, Kerala. Was based in Trichy till my 5th std then moved to Coimbatore after that. Majorly Coimbatore is the place i spent most of my time growing up. Did my schooling from Kendriya Vidyalaya and graduated with a Bsc degree(Visual Communication) from Grd College of Science, Coimbatore

  • When did you first develop a passion to fly? 

My father was an Air Traffic Controller. I grew up majorly in airports authority of India quarters. Seeing airplanes take off and land was my only happiness. Dad used to take me to the tower most of the days, so I could watch it all the time. That’s how the fascination began and the passion for flying started.

https://www.instagram.com/p/CH21eTWsOJw/

 

  • Can you recollect your first flight experience as a child 

Yes, first flight experience was in a Cessna training aircraft. The pilot took me on a small joy ride over trichy town during the night. And the 8 year old me knew that this is all I want in life.

 

  • How did your family react when you told them you wanted to become a pilot? Was it hard to convince them? 

They didn’t take me seriously. Obviously yes! It was super hard for me to convince my parents. They are very simple people and this dream of mine looked next to impossible for them. But I had to stand up for it. Make them understand, that this is my passion and I’ll live up for it no matter what. 

 

https://www.instagram.com/p/BwuAVMJA6nX/

 

  • What were the challenges you faced in your career 

Flying is a career which will give you a lot of challenges everyday. I had to travel to almost all parts of the country for my training and exams. My flight school was located in a remote village near Sagar, Madhya Pradesh. Back then I couldn’t afford a flight ticket and had to travel by trains, late in the night, all alone to get there. I used to be there in my flight school everyday from 5am-7pm in the hangar  waiting for a sortie. Apart from my planned one, thinking I would get an extra hour to log if someone didn’t turn up. Those struggles didn’t look challenging to me coz of my hunger and passion for flying.

  • Did you face any specific challenges because of your gender 

Societal pressure was definitely there. Apart from my close family and friends, nobody else stood by me. They demotivated me big time and told me it was a mans thing to do, my career would be erratic and it wouldn’t be suitable for a girl. Once she gets married who will take care of the family. And on and on. 

  • What was it like to fly a plane for the first time? What was running in your mind 

My first solo. Totally unforgettable experience. I would say it would be the best day for a pilot. I could fly an airplane , take off and land on my own all alone. I was carrying a wide smile throughout the full phase of the flight and patted on my back the moment I landed.

https://www.instagram.com/p/CIBJ0fysb2-/

 

  • Can you recollect one of your most memorable experience in your career ?

A memorable experience was when I took off with passengers for the first time. Knowing I’m the responsible one for so many lives behind me. That sense of responsibility and commitment gave me joy and happiness.

  • The craziest reaction you’ve got or a comment you’ve heard from a passenger 

One grandmother was travelling with her son and knowing that pilot was a woman, requested the cabin crew she would like to meet me after landing. I met her, she had tears of joy. She shook hands with me and told me you’re doing a brilliant job, I wish I had a daughter like you

  • What’s the best and the most difficult aspect about being a pilot 

Best thing – Undoubtedly the best view from an office. Difficult thing – is your schedules, sleep patterns, no common holidays whatsoever. We have no Diwali’s, no New Years or Christmas. 

  • How did you get to be a part of Soorarai pottru? How was the experience being a part of the film 

Asst Director of the film was my junior in college. He approached me and I was excited to do it coz it was a pilot role. Overall amazing experience coz I have never been on a shooting spot and seeing and knowing how the industry works was a great experience and learning for me. 

  • A word to young girls who are looking to venture a career into piloting  

If it’s your passion then do everything to make it happen, no matter what the world says. Failure is irreplaceable when you’re looking for a future in aviation, but never give up. A true aviator never ever gives up on her. Keep working hard and forward and sky is not the limit.

From Aishwarya Rajesh to Keerthy Suresh, several from the industry expressed their grief and condolences.

According to reports, Chitra was found hanging in a hotel Nazarathpettai. She returned back to the hotel after completing the day’s shoot at around 3:00 AM.

She was reportedly staying at the hotel with her fiance Hemanth, a businessman. The couple was engaged to be married shortly. Chitra had told Hemanth to take a walk while she takes a shower. Hemanth, later grew suspicious when the actress took a longer time to call him back.

After first investigations with Hemanth and the hotel’s manager, a popular regional news channel has reported that Hemanth and Chitra had a legal register marriage a few months ago and are infact husband and wife.

It is also noteworthy that the RTO has ordered an inquiry as Chitra committed suicide within 2 months of marriage. Second set of autopsy reports have reported that there were bruise marks on the face of the deceased. Now, her mother has said during an interview that Chitra was a bold woman, and she would advise people with such weak thoughts. She also alleged that it was not a suicide and that her husband Hemanth would have beaten her to death.

On the work front, Chitra is known for her performance in serials like Saravanan Meenatchi, Velunachi, Darling Darling, Mannan Magal and Chinna Papa Periya Papa, to name a few.
As a dancer, Chithra took part as one of the contestants of the show Jodi Fun Unlimited also.

After first investigations with Hemanth and the hotel’s manager, a popular regional news channel has reported that Hemanth and Chitra had a legal register marriage a few months ago and are infact husband and wife. After primary investigation from Hemanth, the Police will next enquite the team with whom Chitra was last shooting.

Tue, 08 Dec 2020 06:04:49 +0000 https://jfwonline.com/article/why-was-it-such-a-big-deal-samyuktha-answers-to-criticisms-for-her-valarppu-seriyilla-comment/ Why Was It Such A Big Deal: Samyuktha ANSWERS To Criticisms For Her ‘Valarppu Seriyilla’ Comment! https://jfwonline.com/article/why-was-it-such-a-big-deal-samyuktha-answers-to-criticisms-for-her-valarppu-seriyilla-comment/ The fourth season of Bigg Boss is running at a full pace. The audience have their favourites and so do the contestants themselves. But some of these contestants are being evicted too and these ones are receiving a very warm welcome home. The latest is Samyuktha. However, the happiest upon her arrival was her family and the celebrations went viral.

In one of her first interviews after eviction, Samyuktha talks about her life in the reality show and post that. “I have been in the Chennai modelling scene for a while, but I haven’t done anything in the mainstream media. What better platform than ‘Bigg Boss Tamil’? It was a great opportunity for me and this is a choice I made for my career. I am happy to be back and reunited with my son Rayan, who is way too excited to have me home,” stated Samyuktha in her interview with TOI.

Talking about all the negative comments and memes she was exposed to, Samyuktha stated, “I did see some of the criticisms. I chose to ignore the negativity and not respond to it. Each one’s perception is different and they are entitled to their opinion. But I did feel bad about comments that were too extreme. The harshness of the language was bad. But haters are going to hate. I choose positivity and I am basking in all the love and positive comments. In fact, I am so overwhelmed with all the love.”

Her comment Valarppu Seriyilla (upbringing isn’t right) became one of her controversial statements in the show. Talking about that, Samyuktha said, “I don’t understand why it became such a big deal. Maybe, it is something that was lost in translation. I got yelled at with no provocation and I didn’t scream back. But I was irritated about it at that point. That remark was not intended to be a comment on someone’s upbringing and I feel this was unnecessarily held on to. What actually happened didn’t get highlighted as much as my reaction to it. That episode was very offensive and it hurt me a lot.”

In the House, Kavin and Losliya were easily the most controversial couple of last season. Their story in the house had a mixed opinion from the viewers of Bigg Boss Tamil. However, from the looks of it, the couple is not together anymore. In fact, the couple never dated one another after leaving the house.

Now, speculations are that Kavin is all set to tie the knot shortly. It is reported that the actor fell in love with his stylist a few months back and the couple has now gotten the approval of their parents too. An official confirmation is awaited from the actor’s side.

In fact, Losliya’s parents were also looking for a groom for the youngster in Canada and her settled there before the unfortunate news of her father’s demise came ahead.

Meanwhile, on the professional front, Kavin’s new movie Lift which has him paired up with Amritha Aiyer is getting ready for release and he is also in talks for a few more projects which will go on floors in 2021.

Fans were ecstatic about this entertainer as it was two leading ladies coming together for the very first time.

Earlier there were speculations that Samantha would be walking out of the film as she was reportedly pregnant. Rubbishing those rumours the actress shared the film’s title on her social media handles very much confirming that she is a part of the film.

It was also reported that Sam was the second lead in the film after Nayanthara. Looks like it that it is now an issue. The Majili actress has reportedly had a conversation with Vignesh Shivan stating that her role in the film is extremely less compared to that of her costars. She has apparently informed that despite agreeing to be the second lead in the film, she should be given an equally meaty role but the director has somehow found it hard to recreate the role.

It has now been reported that the actress has walked out of the film and the team is now looking at another cast possibly Keerthy Suresh and Trisha among others. We are yet to receive an official confirmation from the team with regards to these speculations.

The film produced by Seven Screen Studios and Rowdy Pictures, music is being composed by Anirudh Ravichander and is looking at a February 2021 release.

It is imperative for men to respect their partner in a relationship. When they don’t, it just won’t be worthy any more.

I was in the 7th grade and being in an all-girls school, I had very few guy friends. Some were on the bus that took us to school and some were from the society I stayed in.

Our school was one of the best schools in town. The premises of the school was divided into two. The boys’ school and girls’ school. And interaction during school hours was prohibited.

There was a boy who stayed in my society and came on my bus. He was the only boy with whom I had conversations that were more than just hi-bye. By the end of the first unit of the 7th grade, we became good friends and then he proposed. I said yes.

I really liked him and was curious and excited about how my first relationship would go. We dated for 3 years. Then it was January and we were in 10th grade by then. It was a few weeks before my birthday when he told me that he wanted to kiss me since we were in a relationship for the last 3 years. I ended up refusing and it turned in to a huge argument.

We were still together but things had changed. Then my birthday arrived and I was celebrating with all my friends. He was there too. But I couldn’t keep a track of him as he kept disappearing. Soon, my friend asked me to go and take a look near the ladies restroom, and there I saw him kissing, in fact, making out with my best friend.

I felt broken and didn’t want to confront him at that moment, so I came back and my friends dragged me on to the dance floor. His best friend had become a really close friend of mine too so I started dancing with him.

A few moments later I saw him and my best friend walk into the room and when he saw me dancing with his best friend he held me by the hand and asked me to be with him and not dance so close to his best friend. I could see he felt jealous and with all the frustration inside me, I broke down. I started shouting at him saying that I never asked him why his tongue was down my best friend’s throat, I was just dancing. He started raising his voice.

I slapped him and he broke a bottle on my hand which lead to a huge ruckus. My hand was bleeding and I could see my friends beating him up.

That day was 4 years ago. I still have those stitch marks on my hand. I have tried my best to move on but my past has been so painful that the thought of dating someone scares the soul out of my body.

No reason in the world is justifiable for someone to cheat on someone or break anyone’s heart. If you are not happy in a relationship, end it, but don’t cheat. Trust me, cheating is going to hurt a hell lot more than breaking up.

When IndiaToday.in contacted a source close to the production, they said, “It’s true that the streaming rights of Master have been sold to Netflix. However, the makers are yet to decide on the film’s release.”

The last Tamil film to have released on Prime was Suriya’s Soorarai Pottru after Keerthy Suresh’s Miss India before which Ponmagal Vandhal starring Jyothika, released. It was the first OTT release for a Tamil film on Prime after theatres shut.

They had a grand engagement and a wedding date was set for last October. However, soon after the engagement, the announcement of the respective families calling off their wedding did the rounds. It was further reported that due to their indifferences, the duo had to call off their wedding.

Eventually, Vishal’s father GK Reddy rubbished those rumours and stated, “As we know the engagement event is over. Vishal is particular in conducting his marriage at the newly constructed building of Nadigar Sangam building so there is a delay. As the Nadigar Sangam election issue is in the court, we couldn’t immediately arrange the wedding.”

Anisha had even wished Vishal on his birthday after the engagement was called off. This had the fans assume that the couple were still together.

However, in senior Journalist Chitra Lakshman’s YouTube channel Touring Talkies, he confirmed that the couple had parted ways long back and Anisha’s family was looking to get her married soon. The latest report is that Anisha is all set to get married to a groom her parents have fixed for her.

Mon, 23 Nov 2020 19:00:31 +0000 https://jfwonline.com/article/trending-rj-balaji-opens-up-on-mookuthi-amman-2/ TRENDING: RJ Balaji Opens Up On Mookuthi Amman 2! https://jfwonline.com/article/trending-rj-balaji-opens-up-on-mookuthi-amman-2/ Mookuthi Amman has managed to entertain the audience with timely humour and a rather different narrative and take on religion without not targeting any particular religion in general. Nayanthara as Mookuthi Amman gave a new perspective to the 1990’s Amman stories we enjoyed as kids. Today the storyline has been treated differently through humour that caters to every audience.

As RJ Balaji enjoys the success of the film, the next question fans have imposed on him is a possibility of a sequel. During a recent interaction, the director of the film said, “These days, we get sequels even for films that didn’t run well. Yes, we are planning for the second part but don’t ask me whether I have plans for 25th and 26th parts of the film. When we made LKG, several people asked me whether the next part is UKG. Similarly, we are not going to immediately make the sequel for Mookuthi Amman. The sequel will go on floors when I get the confidence that a new idea would exceed the expectations of the first part.”

Usually very rarely sequels have an impactful effect on the audience. It is always good to figure out whether or not a sequel would work for the film and if the storyline of the sequel makes sense or not.

Let us hope for a sensible sequence for the actor/director.

On the professional front, Nayanthara was last seen in the film Mookuthi Amman alongside RJ Balaji. She now has a Malayalam film Nizhal alongside Kunchacko Boban, Annathae alongside Superstar Rajinikanth and Keerthy Suresh, Netri Kann produced by Vignesh Shivan and Kaathuvakkula Rendu Kadhal starring Vijay Sethupathi and Samantha Akkineni, directed by Vignesh Shivan.

Mon, 23 Nov 2020 17:57:46 +0000 https://jfwonline.com/article/after-karthi-it-is-suriya-for-rashmika-mandanna/ After Karthi, It Is Suriya For Rashmika Mandanna! https://jfwonline.com/article/after-karthi-it-is-suriya-for-rashmika-mandanna/ Rashmika Mandanna is finally making her acting debut in a Tamil film alongside actor Karthi in the film Sultan and it only recently when the actress shared an emotional note as she wrapped up shooting for her first Tamil film. Looks like it she is not the one to stop with this alone.

Recent reports state that the actress is being considered a part of Suriya’s 40th film with director Pandiraj of Varuthapadaadha Valibar Sangam fame. Pandiraj had previously directed Suriya in the film Pasanga 2. Initially Rashmika was in talks with director Hari for his next with Suriya. But looks like it that film is not happening anytime soon. Hence, the Sarrileru Neekkevaru actress is considered to be roped in for Suriya 40.

The film which will be produced by Sun Pictures, the first schedule will begin early next year. Reports are that director Pandiraj hopes to finish shooting in a single schedule.

On the professional front, Rashmika is currently completing two Telugu films including Allu Arjun’s multilingual film with Sukumar titled Pushpa and Aaddaalloo Meeku Joharlu with Satyadev.

Meanwhile Suriya has had a humongous hit with Sudha Kongara’s Soorarai Pottru. He now has Vaadi Vaasal directed by Vetri Maaran and an untitled next with Pandiraj.

Be it his relationships or his future, the actor has always been open about his choices. The newly-wed man is happy in his personal and his professional life today. But it was not easy for him a year or so back. When Rana returned looking “ill” from the USA last July, fans and media were concerned about his health.

In fact, despite clearing the fact that he is hale and healthy, the fans constantly posted worrisome messages. In a recent talk show with Samantha Akkineni, Rana finally opened up about his health struggles. “When life was on a fast forward, there was suddenly a pause button. There was bp, calcification around the heart and you have failed kidneys…It could have been a 70 per cent chance of stroke or haemorrhage and 30 per cent chance of death straight,” the actor told Samantha as he got emotional.

Samantha Akkineni, his family member and host, also got emotional as she remembered witnessing his struggling journey through his critical health condition. Further talking about all the questions asked about his health, the actor said, “I think there was enough speculated about it and I am tired of clarifying that I am absolutely fine and healthy. So, I think rumours about my health are now a boring topic. Whenever I leave Hyderabad, people get apprehensive, but I am thankful for the love and the concern people have been showering on me.”

Thankfully, Rana is in a much better place and is doing some great films. His most anticipated release would have to be Haathi Mere Saathi, a multilingual film also starring Pulkit Samrat in Hindi and Vishnu Vishal in Telugu and Tamil.

Mon, 23 Nov 2020 06:41:50 +0000 https://jfwonline.com/article/exclusive-from-nayantharas-looks-to-the-superhit-sarees-stylist-anu-vardhan-talks-about-all-that-went-behind-creating-the-ultimate-mookuthi-amman/ EXCLUSIVE: From Nayanthara’s Looks To The Superhit Sarees, Stylist Anu Vardhan Talks About All That Went Behind Creating The Ultimate Mookuthi Amman! https://jfwonline.com/article/exclusive-from-nayantharas-looks-to-the-superhit-sarees-stylist-anu-vardhan-talks-about-all-that-went-behind-creating-the-ultimate-mookuthi-amman/ Mookuthi Amman has managed to entertain the audience with timely humour and a rather different narrative and take on religion without not targeting any particular religion in general. Nayanthara as Mookuthi Amman gave a new perspective to the 1990’s Amman stories we enjoyed as kids. Today the storyline has been treated differently through humour that caters to every audience.

But, what’s been the talk of the town is how stunning Nayanthara looked throughout the film. Without rampaging the traditional Indian goddess attire, a modern twist was added to her looks which made her look just the new-age Amman that she is.

In an exclusive interview with JFW, stylist and master craftsman behind these looks, Anu Vardhan talked about all that went behind the scenes.

 

 

 

What were the initial preparations taken for the look of the character?

It was exciting and different from what Nayanthara and I have done together. I had sent across some vintage pictures of Amman and inspirations from Raja Ravi Varma’s paintings what we could mix in together and she really liked the idea of it. These are timeless and that is exactly what we wanted to recreate.

What had to be kept in mind when it came to recreating the new-age Amman?

Nayanthara is usually very comfortable with the silk cotton texture. Pure silk is very heavy to carry especially when the character here is very different from the 90’s. I got these silk cotton sarees specially woven and we eventually got these done for every look. All the jewellery she wore are pure silver which was done by gold Karikars making it look like fine, vintage gold jewellery. Uttarika was the jewellery partner and a dear friend of mine who helped us recreate the finesse of the Goddess jewellery.

 

 

Making Nayanthara’s Saree collection a superhit yet again. 

It feels wonderful to have people raving about the Saree collection. It feels nice to have my work recognise yet again. Despite releasing on an OTT platform, the film has received a large positive response and to have many call me and appreciate my work feels positive and encouraging.

How did you manage to correlate colours to scenes?

It requires a lot of sincere effort to do that. It has been a very challenging experience for me. Initially, I never planned to match the colours to the mood of the scene. I created the looks on the whole for the character throughout the entire film. We then put together the Saree and jewellery together and see what matched to what. But it was completely Nayanthara, the director and the cinematographer who matched the colours to the mood.

For certain scenes however we really pre-planned the colours. For example, to portray power and enigma of the Goddess, we wanted to give Nayan a black Saree. That worked perfectly.

 

 

Nayanthara’s contribution to all the looks. 

I love a team that runs me through how this film would travel, the moodboards and most importantly a team that gives me detailed feedbacks and suggestions. Nayanthara is one such person and that is the reason I love working with her.

Your relationship with Nayanthara. 

We have known each other for about 15 years now and are very dear friends. She is very close to me and personally she has always been there for me and Vishnu Vardhan when we needed a helping hand. It is wonderful to see how far she has come along as an actor and I wish her nothing but all the luck and happiness in the world.

The only three things she believes in are her films, her family and her promising future. She has some of the most promising roles in her kitty and simultaneously has taken the biggest decision in her personal life as well. Kajal Aggarwal, the newest bride in town, bares it all in this conversation with Radhika Ramesh.

Kajal has been in the film industry for over a decade now but she believes that with each film, her choices become wiser. Kajal also talks about her personal life, love, laughter, friendship, marriage and more. Her beliefs in life keep her positive and secure with a healthy chin-up attitude.

In an exclusive interview with JFW, Kajal opened up about her role in Indian 2. Remember the time we were spellbound watching KamalHaasan and Sukanya sport the role of an old couple, setting the country straight, in director Shankar’s Indian? As we await the magic yet again onscreen, Kajal opens up about her role, the challenges and the brilliance of the story on the whole. “I received a call from Shankar sir when initial casting for Indian 2 had begun. I then heard the story and the initial draft of the film and that excited me. This will be particularly very challenging for me because I will be sporting the role of a woman in her 20s to a woman in her late 60s. To portray this entire range is exciting,” gushes Kajal. She further adds, “And, I mean, to work with someone as legendary as Ulaganayagan Kamal Haasan is a one-of-a-kind experience on its own.”

Her working rapport with director Shankar is also a strong one: “He is simply a legend. He loves perfection and I honestly think that is mantra is Eat, Sleep, Create – that’s how brilliant his mind is as a director and we see that in all his films.”

Due to the unfortunate accident on the sets of the film followed by the pandemic, Kajal has not shot much of the film as yet. “Most of the technicians who need to work on my looks are from Hollywood and due to the lockdown, we were unable to fly any of them down. Also, the film demands a huge set and that cannot be created with just 50 or 70 people. So, we will have to wait until everything gets better,” she reveals.

He is a loving husband, a doting father and a terrific actor with a larger than life fanbase. The actor’s onscreen charm and charisma is noteworthy and he is dearly loved and appreciated for his kind-heartedness. But when young Thala was struck by love for the first time, he was the ultimate romantic.

The Viswasam actor was once-upon-a-time in love with yesteryear actress Heera Rajagopal. The couple was deeply and madly in love with each other. In fact, they had even been very open about their relationship in the public. During a recent media interaction, actor and entertainment journalist Bayilvaan Ranganaathan said that throughout the 1990s, Thala Ajith entertained the audience with a lot of hit films but his relationship with Heera was equally most talked about.

They fell in love during the shooting of their first film together, Kathal Kottai. Reportedly, the actor wrote letters to her on the sets. They shared screenspace yet again in their second and last film ‘Thodarum‘.

Bayilvan Ranganaathan had read one of the love letters of the former couple further stating that Heera’s mother was against their marriage as she didn’t want her daughter’s career to get affected at a very young age. The official reason behind their breakup is still not clear but reportedly, Ajith was not happy with Heera’s changed behaviour towards him.

Ajith then met Shalini on the sets of Amarkalam and the couple was inseparable then on. They tied the knot in the year 2000 and have two kids Anoushka and Aadvik.

Shalini and Ajith tied the knot the same year in a star-studded ceremony. Post her wedding, Shalini decided to quit acting. “I enjoyed acting but Ajith was more tempting. I had no qualms about quitting. I am not the kind of person who could manage a home and an acting career. I was very clear about my priorities and it is very peaceful,” Shalini shared in a 2009 interview with JFW magazine.

However, last week, the dancer/actor was in news yet again for his personal life. It was reported that the actor is all set to tie the knot to his niece. Reports now state different. It is reported that the actor has already tied the knot but not to his niece but to his physiotherapist.

Rumours are doing rounds that Prabhudheva has already tied the knot in September at his Mumbai residence, Green Acres and now, he has moved with his wife to Chennai. However, there is yet no official word or picture of them together.

Indian TV quoted a popular Tamil daily DT Next stating, “The latest reports are all baseless. Prabhu Deva got married in September and his wife is a physiotherapist and not his niece. They were seeing each other for quite some time now. She was treating him for his back injury and the wedding took place a couple of months ago. The couple is now living in Chennai.”

Nayanthara and Prabhu Deva’s relationship was talk of the town when the Viswasam actress indirectly admitted to their relationship back then by getting a tattoo in his name. However, Prabhu Deva was a man awaiting his divorce and eventually, everything fell apart for this couple as the fight got ugly. Post-breakup, Nayanthara had talked about how serious this relationship was for her and how this breakup hurt her the most.

Suchi in an interview even expressed her disappointment on how Karthik should have never talked about her state of mind in a video and worsen the situation further while she was battling depression.

Meanwhile, Karthik did an interview in which he talked about how fond he is of his ex-wife and proud of what she has achieved. “My ex-wife is someone I think highly of and am very fond of. None of you know her although you all think you do,” he stated in the interview. Further talking about her entry into Bigg Boss, Karthik said, “Have never watched any program that involved people being watched and judged… We do enough of that shit in real life.” He also said it is, “A scary reflection of ourselves to ourselves.”

Meanwhile in an earlier interview, Suchitra opened up about her ex-husband. “I wish Karthik had not released that video because it confused a lot of people. It affected my work and my relationships. I was going through depression, but I’d have come out of it eventually. It could have been done in a dignified way. Eventually, Karthik, too, realised that it was a bad idea and took it down. I don’t blame the media as they were confused, too. Those leaks… who pulls out private videos of other people from the fraternity and shares it publicly? Who has got access to these videos and which big hand was behind this? All this really shook me. Till date, I have not seen even one of these videos. It is not because I don’t want to be informed about it. Somehow, I didn’t want to add one view of mine to those videos,” she stated in an interview with TOI.

Such is currently a part of the popular reality show Bigg Boss and is also a popular RJ at radio Mirchi.

The duo has always been supportive of one another so much so that they eventually turned out to be family friends. As Losliya’s father passed away in Canada, it came as a shocker to several of her close aids from the Bigg Boss House.

Abhirami who lovingly calls Losliya’s father as “Appa” wrote a heartfelt note on social media. “I can no longer see you with my eyes or touch your feet with my hands, but I will remember you in my heart for ever… you will be missed mariyanesan Appa,” she wrote on her social media.

It came as a shocker when news of Losliya’s father Mariyanesan suddenly passing away in Canada surfaced. S Mariyanesan passed away in Canada on Sunday following a cardiac arrest. Several fans of Losliya and of the reality show offered their condolences to the actress. As the family awaits the mortal remains of Mariyanesan from Canada, Bigg Boss contestants have been offering their condolences and opening up about Losliya’s current state of mind.

Taking to social media, Vanitha wrote, “Even sadder to hearing the news of #LosliyaMariyanesan .cruel…I don’t know how they are handling this…especially being he was the breadwinner and 3 daughters…very heartbroken.. life is too unpredictable…scary…I hope they can at least bring back his body in this time.” Vanitha Vijayakumar also stated that she spoke to Losliya and that she was devastated and kept on crying.

”To all #Losliya fans …I spoke to her she is devastated and crying… but she will be strong she’s trying to fly to Srilanka. arranging thru embassy @vijaytelevision team is with her. due to covid pandemic the body can’t reach srilanka immediately. I’ve given her my love and blessings,” she continued in her tweet.

Losliya’s favourite, Cheran whom she fondly called Cherappa, also offered his condolences. Cheran, who was more like a father figure to Losliya in the Bigg Boss house, took to the micro blogging website and stated that he was left shocked after hearing the news.

Fellow Bigg Boss contestant Fathima Babu also penned down an emotional message.

On the professional front, Losliya has signed for a crime action thriller with JM Raja Saravanan, and it has debutant K Pooranesh in the lead role.

But that is just a farce created by the media and the society. Women in the film industry have never failed to stand up for each other against all the suppression in their respective fields. Today women are choosing better roles and demanding salaries equal to their male counterparts.

Although in the film industry, the salary gap is quite large, women are atleast getting better roles, they are demanding for better films with impactful characters. Two such women from the industry are Samantha Akkineni and Nayanthara who have garnered a large fanbase and are doing some great roles.

As Nayanthara celebrated her 36th birthday yesterday, Samantha who will be seen in a film together with the former posted the most beautiful wish for her costar. “Happy birthday to the one and only Nayanthara.. Keep shining brighter and brighter and inspiring us to fight for what is ours. More power to you sister.. Salute your strength and silent determination #HBDNayanthara,”she wrote on her social media platform.

 

Women supporting women is the best kind of story on the internet.

On the professional front, Samantha Akkineni has an untitled next with Ashwin Saravanan alongside actor prasanna. She also has Vignesh Shivan directed Kaathuvaakkula Rendu Kadhal alongside Vijay Sethupathi and Nayanthara.

Meanwhile, Nayanthara has Nizhal, a Malayalam film starring Kunchacko Boban, Annathae alongside Rajinikanth, Keerthy Suresh, Meena and Khushbu Sundar and Netri Kann produced by Vignesh Shivan.

With your blessings and God’s grace I am safe. Will continue my journey towards Cuddalore to participate in #VelYaatrai #Police are investigating the case. #LordMurugan has saved us. My husband’s trust in him is seen,” she wrote on social media.

 

She further wrote, “Request the press to understand that a container rammed into me and not the other way. My car was on the move in the right lane and this container came from nowhere and rammed into me. Police are investigating n questioning the driver to rule out any foul play.”

 

 

She further wrote that she is completely safe thanking her fans for all the prayers. “

Thank you so much for all the inquiries n good wishes. I feel indebted. I am safe n continuing my journey towards Cuddalore. Nothing has stopped me before this, nothing will stop me now either. Zindagi har kadam ek nayi Jung hai. Jeet jaayenge hum tu agar sang hai #VelYaatrai,” she wrote.

We are glad the actress is safe!

On the professional front, Khushbu Sundar has Rajinikanth’s Annathae also starring Meena, Keerthy Suresh, Nayanthara and Soori among others.

The actress, model, animal rights activist is a household name in Tamil Nadu.

In an industry that epitomizes patriarchy, where actors continue to reign as heroes for a minimum of three decades while actresses rise and fall in the blink of an eye, things have turned out to be a little different for this firebrand. It has been over a decade and she has still got what it takes– women love her and want to be like her, and men still go a bit wonky when they see her on screen, they really cannot get enough of her. After Sridevi, she is probably the only one who carried off the half sari with such elegance; having said that, her sexy, smouldering avatar is no less. Trisha’s story is not very different – she is a college student turned beauty queen turned super heroine. What is different is that all of us are still under the spell of her x-factor.

Despite a successful professional career, she has been in news for her personal life as well. After a much discussed rumour of her soon-to-happen wedding with Simbu, Trisha has finally opened up about her wedding plans.

In a recent interview, Trisha stated that she will marry someone who fully understands her, and it will be a love marriage. Furthermore, she added that her marriage will happen when she meets someone like that, until then, she doesn’t have to worry about being single. Not only that but Trisha also added that she is also ready to be single forever without worries if she never meets someone in her life.

With a career spanning twenty years and over sixty films, it’s safe to say that Trisha Krishnan better known as Trisha is a reigning star. The actress, model, animal rights activist is a household name in Tamil Nadu. Recognized for both her looks and talents, she is one of the few actors who has worked with all the big-name directors and actors in the Tamil industry. She also has a very successful career in the Telugu film industry which is seen through her various best actor awards that she won for her roles in movies like Varsham, Nuvvostanante Nennoddantana, Aadavari Matalaku Arthale Verule.

On the work front, Trisha has Mani Ratnam’s magnum opus Ponniyin Selvan, Mohanlal’s Ram, Sugar with Simran, Raangi, Garjanai, and Paramapadham Vilayattu in the pipeline.

Sun, 15 Nov 2020 07:44:01 +0000 https://jfwonline.com/article/trending-prabhu-deva-to-tie-the-knot-to-his-niece/ TRENDING: Prabhu Deva To Tie The Knot To His Niece? https://jfwonline.com/article/trending-prabhu-deva-to-tie-the-knot-to-his-niece/ Nayanthara and Prabhu Deva’s relationship was talk of the town when the Viswasam actress indirectly admitted to their relationship back then by getting a tattoo in his name. However, Prabhu Deva was a man awaiting his divorce and eventually, everything fell apart for this couple as the fight got ugly. Post-breakup, Nayanthara had talked about how serious this relationship was for her and how this breakup hurt her the most.

After that, Prabhu Deva has not been in news ever since. Recently, the actor is back into trending for personal stories. It has been reported that the actor-choreographer-director is all set to tie the knot to his niece. It is said that he has been in a relationship with her for quite sometime now. There is yet a confirmation required from Prabhu Deva’s side.

Nayanthara met Prabhu Deva on the sets of Villu which was directed by the latter and starred Vijay in the lead. Love blossomed from then on. Looks like it, after 11 years, the exes are all set to reunite. Prabhu Deva is directing yet another film with producer Isari Ganesh and looks like it that the Lady superstar might play the lead in it.

A couple of years back a dual hero project ‘Karuppu Raja Vellai Raja’ with Karthi and Vishal as the heroes were announced by Ganesh in view of using the funds to the Nadigar Sangam buildings. However, the project was shelved due to unfortunate circumstances and it is reported that the shoot of the film might resume with Karthi as the lead but Vishal might be replaced for Nayanthara. Of course, this is just a speculation and there is no confirmation from the team yet.

On the professional front, Nayanthara is doing Vignesh Shivan’s next titled Kaathuvakkula Rendu Kadhal also starring Vijay Sethupathi and Samantha Akkineni. She also has the RJ Balaji starrer Mookuthi Amman, Netri Kann produced by Vignesh Shivan. Apart from this, she is touted to do an extended cameo in Rajinikanth’s Annathae directed by Siruthai Siva.

Meanwhile, Prabhu Deva is currently working for his Bollywood directorial ‘Radhe’ starring Salman Khan in the lead role. He will also be seen in the lead roles in the films ‘Pon Manickavel’, ‘Theal’, ‘Yung Mung Sung’, ‘Oomai Vizhigal’ and ‘Bagheera’ in Tamil.

On the professional front, it has been reported that the film Kaathuvaakula Rendu Kadhal will be directed by Nayanthara’s beau and filmmaker, Vignesh Shivan, and has been titled “Kaathu Vaakula Rendu Kadhal”. Lalit Kumar’s 7 Screen Studios is set to produce the film and Anirudh Ravichander is to be roped in as the music composer. It would be a huge delight for Samantha and Nayanthara fans since they will be sharing the big screen for the first time. As reported earlier, Vignesh Shivan and Vijay Sethupathi got together a few days back to discuss the film.

Vijay Sethupathi and Nayanthara teamed up earlier in the 2015 hit “Naanum Rowdy Dhaan” which was also written and directed by Vignesh Shivan himself. The Tamil film was later dubbed into Telugu as “Nenu Rowdy Ne”. Vijay Sethupathi and Samantha also worked with each other on the 2019 film “Super Deluxe” though they did not share screen time together.

Apart from Kaathuvaakkula Rendu Kadhal starring Vijay Sethupathi, Nayanthara and Samantha Akkineni, he is also reportedly directing Sivakarthikeyan for his next. Whereas, Nayanthara is on top of her game today. From doing a confident beauty campaign with Bollywood star Katrina Kaif to doing some daring roles in her upcoming film Netri Kann, the actress is an inspiration today. Produced by Ishari Ganesh who also produced LKG, Mookuthi Amman is a film written and directed by RJ Balaji.

Thu, 12 Nov 2020 07:52:14 +0000 https://jfwonline.com/article/exclusive-soorarai-pottru-actress-aparna-balamurali-opens-up-about-her-experience-in-the-film-and-acting-suriya/ EXCLUSIVE: Soorarai Pottru Actress Aparna Balamurali OPENS UP About her experience in the film and acting Suriya! https://jfwonline.com/article/exclusive-soorarai-pottru-actress-aparna-balamurali-opens-up-about-her-experience-in-the-film-and-acting-suriya/ Nuanced with a tinge of sparkle, it’s hard to believe that she’s all of 23 and only a few films old. But with promising projects in the pipeline and performances that leave an impact on you, Aparna Balamurali is that artist who has so much going for herself without any traces of pretence. Unrestrained with an eye for what suits her, in a conversation with JFW in 2019, the young and upcoming actress describes her sojourn so far. Here are extracts from her cover interview. 

Soorarai Pottru improved my Tamil!”

For people brought up down South, the similarities between two South Indian languages is often unmissable. For Aparna, who has primarily been involved in Malayalam projects, can speak Tamil quite efficiently thanks to the innumerable Tamil movies and songs she was exposed to while growing up. But the real reason for improving at this juncture is her upcoming Tamil film. “After signing up for Soorarai Pottru, I’ve come for reading at least five times already. So by now, I know my Tamil has improved greatly!” she exclaims.

The project, too, is rather dear to her. It came to her as a surprise, a word she often uses to describe how things have been going for her lately, professionally speaking. “I gave my audition for the film. Since there’s a Madurai slang in it, it was quite difficult. Director Sudha Kongara and I used to still be connected over phone. She didn’t let go of me that easily; she changed the script and asked me to work on it.” Later, Aparna worked on her Madurai slang and familiarised herself with the character more. “I took a video of myself delivering the dialogue again and sent it to her.. Till the shoot started, I wasn’t sure if I was going to be a part of the film or not. I knew the whole script, had come for a reading 4-5 times, had even signed a contract, but the suspense was always there. Announcements later, I knew I had signed on something big and would be essaying a role that would always stay with me,” she narrates.

“Suriya is one in a million!”

Now that she will be sharing screen space with yet another South Indian male superstar, Aparna reveals that it’s quite the journey for her. Suriya is someone she grew up watching, and admiring him and his wife, Jyothika, as a couple was something that was reaffirmed after their first meeting. “As a co-star, as a human being, he’s very humble and friendly. You end up liking him more especially after you watch Jyothika ma’am’s interviews talking about him,” she says. Ask her if she was starstruck, she admits affirmative. “When I saw Jyothika ma’am, I was really star struck. I mean, she’s my favourite! She is so down to earth. During the look test, she came to me and spoke about how sweet I looked and wished me well. That really moved me,” she shares with a twinkle in her eye.

Story first, budget secondary.”

With a few years to her credit, Aparna attributes the importance of a script far more superior than the budget it involves making it. “Everybody who approaches me, especially in Malayalam, they always say that it’s a ‘low budget’ film. I feel like people should confidently talk about the story and script and not the budget. For me, the story matters more,” she says, as a matter of fact.

She holds an advice she received from her Maheshinte Prathikaram director in high regards, something that has helped her choose good scripts. “Initially when I used to listen to scripts, I used to call a lot of people and ask their opinions. Dileesh Pothan once said to me that liking the script ultimately was up to me. Everybody will have a different perspective on a script and if you like it, if you feel like you can do justice to it, then you should take it,” she concludes.

Thu, 12 Nov 2020 04:53:25 +0000 https://jfwonline.com/article/soorarai-pottru-movie-review-suriya-gives-his-career-best-performance-in-this-gripping-drama/ Soorarai Pottru Movie Review: Suriya Gives His Career Best Performance In This Gripping Drama! https://jfwonline.com/article/soorarai-pottru-movie-review-suriya-gives-his-career-best-performance-in-this-gripping-drama/ Suriya is a tricky actor, in the sense, he falls in love with every script whether good or bad. He loves to enact anything and everything the script demands him to do. So a director who makes a film with Suriya must give him only the vest storyline and make him shine brighter than a star despite having characters as strong as him in the film.

Sudha Kongara is an actor’s director. She will merge her narrative and her characters beautifully with the  actor so much so that to the audience the actor IS the character and we would probably not imagine anybody else taking their place. That is exactly what Soorarai Pottru is all about. It is when an intelligent director gives a compassionate actor breathe life into a character as strong, rebellious yet subtle and kind-hearted as Maara aka Nedumaaran Rajangam, the man that gave everyone a chance to fly.

This storyline is based on Captain CR Gopinath’s Simply Fly and ‘stories from the aviation industry’. Nedumaaran’s life is full of struggles. Born and raised in a remote Village in Madurai, Maaran is the son of a school teacher who has been teaching him to stand up for righteousness no matter what. He knows that his dream to make everyone including the people from his village fly is no cakewalk, but he had to break the barrier of class existing the society. Trains wouldn’t stop in his village earlier but his wildest dream is to have planes make a halt there. However, Paresh Goswami (Paresh Rawal), has been a gamechanger in the aviation industry and to challenge him isn’t easy. His efforts to put Maara to the ground are constant but despite that will Maara succeed is what keeps the film going until the very end.

When writers are two women you are bound to know that it has got to be very well thought out and very intelligent. To writers Sudha Kongara and Shalini Ushadevi, their characters are not driven by gender but by the depth an actor could take it up to. Evidently, every character in the film is strong. Despite Suriya being the star of the show, Nedumaaran’s love and respect for the women in his life is what makes him a good person with a kind heart. His wife Bommi (Aparna Balamurali) and his mother (Urvashi) are two women with very different character arcs yet so similar when it comes to the strength and candor they behold. Bommi and Maaran’s relationship is the best example of a marriage, supportive of each other yet flying high to fulfill their own dreams.

No one but Aparna Balamurali could have nailed this role. Actors like Aparna are rare, they marry the character they are given and stand firm on the ground. Strong women characters like Bommi is what is needed in commercial films of huge actors. Aparna Balamurali is a fine example of how actresses today must choose roles in commercial films and is a sensation everyone must watch out for because the game for her has just begun. Urvashi has been one of the finest actors of her time and continues to be so.

Apart from the gripping scenes of Maara chasing his dreams, the relationship between him and his wife is noteworthy. She does not give up on her dreams of opening up a huge bakery just because her husband has dreams to fly. She believes that a husband and a wife’s money is equal and if the husband does not have money to run the family, it is absolutely fine to run the family with the wife’s income. Bommi doesn’t believe in male ego or false pride, she believes in equality and hardwork. So when Maara brings the former two in between their relationship, Bommi puts him in his place.

Yes, the film has its few shares of negatives. Commercialism comes into play when everything falls into place rather quickly for Maara in the second half but this can be overlooked when the writing is brilliant. Sudha Kongara knows to reach her audience through her simple language and unbeatable emotions. Several scenes may look over-dramatised but Suriya’s stellar acting forces you to overlook such scenes. Song placements in the film could have definitely been better but the tunes would leave you mesmerised.

Lifting up the entire film would definitely have to be GV Prakash’s fantastic music and background scores. He has made goosebumps feel better with his timely tunes. Sudha has showered love in every scene through frames. The cinematography is excellent and the screenplay is quick and engaging in the first part.

Sudha Kongara has yet again proved that a strong and a larger-than-life story narrated in a simple form can reach millions of people. Suriya’s acting has proven yet again that he is one of the finest actors of our times and Aparna Balamurali’s performance as Bommi will be etched in our hearts forever. Here’s to the first best film of 2020!

Verdict: A rollercoaster worth riding.

Rating: 4/5

Weightage of women character: 4/5

Tue, 10 Nov 2020 05:25:02 +0000 https://jfwonline.com/article/exclusive-kajal-aggarwal-opens-up-about-her-8-years-love-story-lockdown-wedding-and-future/ EXCLUSIVE: Kajal Aggarwal OPENS UP About Her 8 Years Love Story, Lockdown Wedding And Future! https://jfwonline.com/article/exclusive-kajal-aggarwal-opens-up-about-her-8-years-love-story-lockdown-wedding-and-future/ Unlike her ultra-chic fashion choices, her rules in life are very simple. The only three things she believes in are her films, her family and her promising future. She has some of the most promising roles in her kitty and simultaneously has taken the biggest decision in her personal life as well. Kajal Aggarwal, the newest bride in town, bares it all in this conversation with Radhika Ramesh.

Kajal Aggarwal announced her engagement to GautamKitchlu in October and eventually tied the knot in an intimate ceremony on October 30th. Since this love story has remained a secret for too long, the question had to be asked. Kajal’sresponse? Not only has he been accepting of my success, he’s also extremely encouraging when it comes to my career and that is exactly why I chose to marry my best friend,” says Kajal with glee.

 


Their love story is very mu
ch like Chandler and Monica. “We met a decade ago at a mutual friend’s wedding and we immediately hit it off. I was from the bride’s side and he was from the groom’s side, it was so typical and filmy (laughs). Unfortunately, after the wedding we didn’t kept in touch. But we later dated briefly for a while after that and then again disappeared from each other’s lives. Eventually we came back to each other again but this time we managed to cultivate the most beautiful and the strongest friendship there could ever be. It came out of nowhere and we just decided to take this friendship to the next step,” says a happy Kajal.

The actor believes that the pandemic played a very crucial role in her marriage decision. “Earlier, we had the luxury of meeting very often at several places but when the pandemic struck and we used to get only a couple of minutes at a grocery store buying essentials and wearing masks, we realized how hard it was for us to stay apart from each other. That is when we decided that we wanted to stay together for the rest of our lives. We take time and people for granted and only during such trying times we realize the worth and value of relationships. We have been each other’s constant for a decade and there was no way anybody could have understood us as individuals as we had each other,” insists the new bride. Gautam, made the gentlemanly gesture and came to meet Kajal’s parents, and there began their official love story.

 

 


Behind
a lockdown wedding…

Planning an Indian wedding is wild enough without throwing a pandemic into the mix. Kajal’s case was no different: “I did go crazy (laughs). I am a huge control-freak and to plan the wedding in the safest way possible was the biggest challenge for me. There is no way I’m a chill bride but fortunately my guests are the people I love and they already know me well so it’s fine if they see me jitter (laughs).Precautions had to be taken, of course and that further added to the labour: “My guests were all quarantined, tested and then allowed to come to the wedding. In fact, they were not even allowed to visit salons but ultimately it is for everyone’s health so we could allenjoy the moment to the fullest without any concerns during the wedding. We had sanitizer stations set up everywhere. Protocols were in order and nobody was allowed to loiter around the city. But, believe me this did not even remotely take away the joy and fun we had at the wedding. Although these are crazy times and planning this wedding was the hardest thing to do, luckily for me, my family is a support like no other. Also, despite the safety bubble I had created for my guests, it was a fifty-strong wedding. It made me realize that I would have been on another level of fluster had we planned a big, fat wedding with a heavy guest list (laughs).”

 

 

Made for forever 

Marrying her best friend is what Kajal counts as the happiest moment in her life. Going by her wedding pictures and her stunning Anamika Khanna lehenga it is hard to disagree with that. And she treasures it as much more than just a milestone:I wouldn’t want it any other way and I cannot imagine it with any other person. I am happy with the way things have folded out for me including its timing and faith. I am grateful because he was the one from the very beginning and that is the best feeling ever.”

Mon, 09 Nov 2020 13:45:57 +0000 https://jfwonline.com/article/dont-compare-suchi-to-me-bigg-boss-fame-oviya-asks-the-media-to-avoid-unnecessary-comparison/ Don’t Compare Suchi To Me: Bigg Boss Fame Oviya Asks The Media To Avoid Unnecessary Comparison! https://jfwonline.com/article/dont-compare-suchi-to-me-bigg-boss-fame-oviya-asks-the-media-to-avoid-unnecessary-comparison/ When RJ Suchi entered the Bigg Boss house, the audience were expecting something more controversial but Suchi has been maintaining a very different characteristic idea altogether. Upon her role in the House, the audience on social media are making comparisons with Oviya from the first season of the show.

During a recent media interaction, the Kanchana 3 actress was asked to comment on the same. “I don’t have anything to say about this. Suchitra has to say if she likes being compared to me. I don’t know if she likes people comparing her to me. Sometimes people don’t like it when you compare them with others. They have their own individuality. I am not big person that people should compare her with me. I don’t think it’s a good thing to compare her with me, it’s going to be difficult for her and I don’t get any joy out this. Everyone has unique characters and nobody is same. I don’t think it’s a right thing to compare one with another,” she said.

Talking about the huge number of fans she garnered during the season, Oviya said, “It doesn’t even matter to me. I am so far away from all these things. I like the way people show love to me, when I go out they take selfies with me, but it doesn’t give huge happiness to me and it won’t bother me if I don’t have an army. They know me and I don’t know them personally, if I have an issue I can’t talk to my fan. I like that they love me, I am so grateful for that. I shouldn’t be depressed in future if I don’t have an army. I am training my mind to be ok with it. I can’t handle it when there is mutual love and when someone stops giving me their love, so I am balancing it this way.”

On the professional front, Oviya will make an extended cameo appearance in Arav’s Raja Bheema.

Mon, 09 Nov 2020 06:00:15 +0000 https://jfwonline.com/article/breaking-telugu-actor-chiranjeevi-tests-positive-for-covid/ BREAKING: Telugu Actor Chiranjeevi Tests Positive For COVID! https://jfwonline.com/article/breaking-telugu-actor-chiranjeevi-tests-positive-for-covid/ A shocking news came across today confirming that Telugu superstar Chiranjeevi has tested positive for COVID-19. Tollywood actor Chiranjeevi on Monday said that he had tested positive for the coronavirus. Taking to Twitter, Chiranjeevi wrote, “Took a test for COVID-19 before resuming ‘Acharya’ shoot as a protocol and unfortunately tested positive. I am currently asymptomatic and quarantining myself at home. Request all those who met me in the last few days to also undergo COVID-19 tests. Will update you on my recovery soon.”

The actor had met Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao along with actor Akkineni Nagarjuna. Chiranjeevi and Nagarjuna donated Rs one crore and Rs 50 lakh respectively to the Chief Minister’s Relief Fund (CMRF) after heavy rains flooded Hyderabad. The actors were seen removing their masks as they handed over the cheques to the Telangana Chief Minister. Reports suggest that this could have been one of the reasons for it.

Meanwhile, Telangana reported 857 new COVID-19 cases on Sunday, taking the total tally to 2.51 lakh while four more deaths pushed the toll to 1,381, the state government said on Monday.

The couple is active on social media and never misses a chance to go on an exotic vacation. But, before their wedding, no one ever really knew what was going on. Sam, however, confessed that Chay and she, they were dating for a good 8 years before the BIG proposal happened.

The couple has been very transparent about their relationship and that’s what is loved most by their fans. In a recent, a fan asked Samantha to divorce Naga Chaitanya and marry him. “Chay ki divorce iccheyi mana iddaram pelli chesukundham (Please divorce Chay, let’s get married),” wrote the fan.

To this, Samantha replied, “Kashtam, Okkapan Chey,  Chay ni Adigu. (Very difficult, do one thing, ask Chay).”

One such story the internet has been blessed with today is the beautiful love story of an 84-year-old grandpa and his wife who was recently diagnosed with Alzheimer’s. Popular social media page Humans of Bombay posted the story of the granddaughter narrating their story. Read this:

“In 2015, Ammama, my grandma, was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s–she’d forget to eat & sleep for 13 hours a day. Thatha was heartbroken, ‘Why doesn’t she speak to me?’ he’d ask. But he never left her side; from cooking, to oiling her hair to taking her to the loo–he did it all. We asked him to move in with us but he refused–‘All my life, she’s taken care of me. It’s my turn now,’ he said.
He tried hard to revive her memory, but she couldn’t recollect anything. Eventually we hired a caretaker as Ammama’s condition worsened. After the lockdown, I couldn’t visit them often, so on mom’s birthday in June, Thatha asked me to stay with them; I promised I would.
But within a few days, Thatha fell & injured his back. Because of covid, only Mom could go to the hospital. The doctors said he’d suffered a silent heart attack & also tested positive for covid. I couldn’t believe it–Thatha never stepped out of the house!
After, mom, dad, my brother & I all tested positive; we isolated. 2 days in, the doctor told us Thatha was better. Mom & I video called him–mom told him, ‘I’ll take care of Ammama,’ But I wanted him to hold on & said, ‘Soon, you’ll be with us’; he didn’t react.
The next day, Thatha succumbed. I was shattered. We spoke to Ammama’s doctors & they advised us not to tell her the truth because of her fragile health.
We all moved in with Ammama after testing negative–it’s been 4 months now but she still hasn’t realised that Thatha is no more. Upon waking up, she asks me, ‘Has he left me?’ but before I can say anything, she reassures herself–‘I know he loves me, he’d never leave me.’ The pain & guilt is unbearable.
So whenever she feels restless, we tell her that Thatha’s gone to buy groceries, but within minutes she forgets & asks again. If the doorbell rings, she excitedly looks at the door, only to be disappointed.
She’s never stopped believing that Thatha will come back. Just yesterday she spoke to me about their wedding day.
I know there may come a day when she forgets me but even then, she’ll remember Thatha. Her faith in him is so strong that she makes me want to believe he’ll come back someday. It makes me believe that love surpasses everything; even death.”

Since his successful breakthrough on TV, Arav has launched his Kollywood career as a leading actor with Market Raja MBBS in 2019, and has signed to do Raja Bheema, directed by debutante Naresh Sampath, and Santhosh Prathap starrer Meendum Vaa Arugil Vaa, both expected to release in 2020. Oviya had a very busy 2019, starring in 6 movies including the blockbuster Kanchana 3. Her next Tamil outing will coincidentally be Raja Bheema alongside Arav, where she has an extended cameo role.

Arav and Oviya were in the news earlier this year when Arav threw a surprise birthday party for the actress, and have always been rumoured to be a couple. However, Arav had later come out and denied that he is in any sort of relationship.

Later Arav announced his wedding with Raahei. While most Bigg Boss contestants attended the wedding, Oviya was nowhere to be seen.

Finally Oviya responded to these speculations. As per the report, Oviya answered why she didn’t attend Arav’s wedding and said that she was in Kerala at the time of his wedding. She also added that whatever that happened between them was over and now he has a beautiful life. She also asked her fans not to ask about the issue again.

Bigg Boss Contestant LASHES OUT At Media For False News! https://jfwonline.com/article/vanitha-and-peter-patch-up-bigg-boss-contestant-lashes-out-at-media-for-false-news/ Vanitha got into a heated argument after drunk filmmaker misbehaved with her recently in Goa. Reportedly, she beat him up and has also thrown him out of her house. However, there is no official word regarding the same by the actress yet. Ravindar Chandrasekharan confirmed the news with a cryptic message on Facebook.

In a 45 minutes long video posted by a Tamil news Vanitha exposed that Peter Paul had a drinking problem. He was an alcoholic and has previously been admitted in the hospital due to this. It has also caused him heart attack once. Vanitha admitted him in the hospital and tried to reach out to his wife and son who did not respond. Once he was slightly recovered he again started drinking and smoking which according to his doctors are quite fatal to his health conditions.

In her recent social media post, Vanitha wrote, “To all my well wishers and media friends..some baseless rumors are being circulated as news claiming me trying to patch up and get back and I being rejected.kindly refrain from hallucinating such illusions as I have never been rejected in my life by anyone. It would have been me who rejected someone. I have tried my best to work things out in my past relationships and put up with a lot of nonsense but after an unbearable point couldn’t tolerate further and had to walk out…”

Talking about the issues surrounding her marriage with Peter Paul, she had earlier said in a video, “I know some people are misusing this situation to make money from the public and gain visibility in media… It’s okay… I’m tired of all this cornering and harassment. We don’t need to prove our love to anyone anymore..”

Cast: Keerthy Suresh, Jagapathi Babu, Nadhiya, Naresh

There are bad movies, then, there are movies so bad that they offend you. Sloppy writing coupled with a weak storyline, poor dialogues that sound like lectures, bad performances, and scenes that will make you roll your eyes off your socket, Narendra Nath’s Miss India feels like a movie written by a bored seven-year-old. Released on Netflix the Keerthy Suresh Starrer is a two-hour-long Tea Advertisement that’s tough to sit through.

 

Manasa Samuythka (Keerthy Suresh), is the youngest among three siblings in a small town middle class family. She aspires to do an MBA and become a businesswoman at an age of ten? She also promises  her grandpa an Ayurvedic doctor that she will make him famous and ,proud of her one day. Fast forward to fifteen years.  tragedy strikes and the whole family moves to San Francisco.

 

Mansa continues her final year of MBA at the University of San Francisco with the same dream of wanting to start a business. Post her graduation, however, she is reminded by her male chauvinistic brother that business is not for women and that she should take up a regular paying job. However, Samyuthka is set to prove him and the world wrong. What follows is a silly tale that feels like a long tea advertisement. The triteness and hollowness of the movie can be summed up by the storyline of how a small-town girl moves to America opens a Tea (Chai) shop and becomes a millionaire in two months. 

 

Nothing in the movie at any point in time makes any sense. Like for instance Why is everyone in the states understanding Telugu? How is this “Middle class” family able to afford to live in a villa? Why does this place feel more like Hyderabad? And why do all the Americans in the movie sound like Siri (not joking!)?  

 

The story is built around good intent that probably sounded good on paper. It aims to talk about patriarchy in the business world and how women entrepreneurs face sexism. And about how women’s ideas, ideals, and career goals are generally taken less seriously. The core idea of the movie is something a lot of women can relate to, yet it’s impossible not to think that this story might have been better served. 

Rating: 1/5

Importance to Women: 5/5

Amala Paul has been in the limelight for a while now even though she has not been doing a lot of films lately. Her last film Aadai had created a lot of stir but her bold character was critically acclaimed. Amala Paul has been travelling a lot and has been on a spiritual journey. In fact, Amala Paul’s boyfriend, Bhavninder Singh was very active on social media posting some adorable posts mostly of Amala. It is to be noted that the actress started dating the Mumbai designer in the year 2017. After which the couple lived together in Mumbai.

It was also reported that the duo were engaged in the year 2018. Soon after that Bhavninder had posted some images of the couple in wedding attires after which speculations began doing the rounds that the couple was married. Amala later confirmed that that is just nothing more than a rumour. “I am currently busy with films. Once they are done, I will announce about my wedding. I spoke about my love. So I will speak about my wedding too. So till then, don’t spread rumours on my weddings. I will announce it when the time comes,” she had stated early this year. Later it was reported that the couple has parted ways.
 The Madras High Court has now allowed the actor to file a defamation case against her former boyfriend Bhavninder Singh for posting their private pictures and claiming that they got married in a secret marriage ceremony in March this year. The actor had denied getting married to the Mumbai-based singer back then.
On Tuesday, Justice Sathish Kumar allowed the actor to file a defamation case against her former boyfriend for circulating their pictures on Instagram and claiming that they got married. The couple reportedly got engaged in 2018. Amala, according to reports, said that the photos were taken for professional purposes and the singer misused it. She has also sought a stay from the court against publishing her pictures with him.
Notably last year, Amala had spoken about her partner in interviews without revealing his identity. “I used to think that only a mother could provide unconditional love and make sacrifices. But this man proved it that he can too. He had to sacrifice his job, his career to be with me and to support me… he knows my passion and he appreciates that. He stands by my side and he’d tell me my flaws,” she had said in an interview to Film Companion.
Amala married AL Vijay in the year 2014 and parted ways in 2016. The Thalaivi director is now married to a doctor named Aishwarya.

While most of them respond to these trolls to feel better and also to prove a point, some are just tired of constantly addressing these trolls and choose to ignore for their own peace of mind. Rising star Rashmika Mandanna is no less. She has been subject to several character shamers for her personal life choices and body shamed for her type.

On social media Rashmika talked about this issue. “We are at a age and time where anything and everything is available /can be done from the touch of a screen..  Bluntly saying this can save a person or even kill a person.  Have I been trolled- yes Have I been body shamed- yes Have I been character shamed- yes Have I been cyber bullied- yes. But why do I still not hide away from the Internet or creating content is because I know there’s soooo much more good than all this negativity out there and but the thing is when you see so much negativity you start to believe that there is only negativity.. even though it’s just a small part or a phase.. we believe that this is it and so I think it’s a high time start focussing on our digital wellbeing and start using our phones for bigger and better things. This tool was meant for creating, connecting and collaborating. If you are reading this, be the reason behind a creator feeling more encouraged today and be an example of using your phone to optimise your productivity,” she stated.

In our Punjabi meets Kashmiri wedding, we just had to include #Jeelakarrabellam జీలకర్రాబెల్లం – a tribute to both Gautam and my individual relationships with South India! 😍 In a Telugu wedding, Jeelakarra Bellam signifies the union/marriage of the bride and the groom. Jeelakarra (cumin) and bellam (jaggery) are made into a thick paste and put on a tamalapaku (betel leaf). The bride and the groom put it on each other’s head while the purohit chants mantras from the Vedas. The bride and the groom look at each other only after this ceremony is completed and this auspicious ceremony signifies that the couple will stay together in bitter and sweet times ❤️

Planning a wedding entails so many moving parts and added to that the pandemic definitely was a challenge. However we strictly followed covid protocols which meant we had to have a very small wedding, got all our guests tested and created a bubble for everyone who was a part of our celebration. We are very grateful for all our loved ones that were able to attend and those who joined virtually from afar were terribly missed and we hope to see you all soon.

In fact, Santhanam has been in constant touch with his family ever since. Sethu’s wife Uma Sethuraman revealed that the doctor’s new branch of Zi Clinic has been unveiled in ECR.

Dr. Sethuraman’s wife Uma has given birth to a baby boy. The young wife was pregnant during the unfortunate death of the actor. A doctor had even shared the happy news on social media saying, “He is back. You just changed your age. Will call you Kutti Sethu.”

As the mother and son return home, Uma shared a beautiful welcome back video and announced the name of the baby boy. “Dr.V.Sethuraman
is now Vedanth Sethuraman,” she wrote on her social media.

The young actor tied the knot with Uma on February 12, 2016 and has a child. Sethuraman had suffered a critical spine injury and underwent a surgery in 2017. While the whole nation was under lockdown for 21 days due to the coronavirus, in a shocking turn of events, the actor suffered a cardiac arrest at around 8.45 PM on March 26 at his home and was declared dead.

In a span of ten years, she had acted with all the top stars from the filmdom – Rajinikanth, Kamal Haasan, Chiranjeevi, Nagarjuna, Ajith, Suriya, Vijay, Vikram, Madhavan – the list is endless. Her simple and sweet persona on and off-screen has given a fan following that would put her contemporaries to shame.

After a long hiatus, the actor made a comeback in RosshanAndrrews’ 36 Vayadhinile, a remake of the Malayalam blockbuster How Old Are You. She captured the hearts of millions from the time she forayed into the cinema industry. After being a part of the filmdom for a decade, this bubbly actor decided to take a break and focus on her family life. Jyothika or Jo, as she is fondly called by her fans never left their minds and hearts, even during her seven-year sabbatical.

“I ensure that every member of my family has wholesome and nutritious meals, every day.”

A hands-on mother, Jyothika makes sure that everything in her house is timely and perfect for her children;she says, “I cannot cook at all and I never ever attempt to make anything myself; of course I have tried a bit in my teenage days, but the end results haven’t been that great. However, I ensure that every member of my family has wholesome and nutritious meals, every day.”

Didn’t she get influenced to try her hand in the kitchen post marriage at Suriya’s place? “Luckily, at Suriya’s place to they have enough cooks to take care of all the food requirements, so I really lucked out there,” she smiles.

There’s the high school kind where everything is endearingly sweet and impulsive. Then there’s the popular one, love at first sight, though the big debate of whether it is even a possibility is still alive. The third kind is one that is characterized by sheer lust, sparks flying instantly, ephemeral but real nevertheless.

The final one, however, is our favorite kind – friends becoming life partners. It is everyone’s ideal romantic circumstance, one that is predictable yet straightforward. The personalities in focus here are two such people. 

The personalities in focus here are two such people. Their story is one that has a fairytale finale, of months of discovering, squabbles spurred and sorted, empathy and more, all cemented together with the love that is unconditional. It’s not like they had to carriage their affection in front of the camera, they were who they were – hopelessly in love with each other.

Breaking it to the Family

Coming clean about the relationship wasn’t the easiest task, not for Prasanna at least. “My folks took it really well. Their only concern was if I would be safe in the relationship because I was hurt before. Otherwise, they had no issues with him or his background.” Given his family background and upbringing, the story in Prasanna’s house was entirely different.

Especially for a prostitute. Since I understood life, every inch of my soul suffered in grief. I have no idea what my age is or who my parents were. I spent my lifetime on the street. And my daughter was the only reason of my breath. I never told her what my profession was. She was a beautiful chubby child; it was very difficult to tell her any lie, mostly when she smiled at me. Whenever she asked me, ‘Why are you going to work at night, amaa?’ I could hardly speak to her, but sometimes I told her; ‘I never wanted to work at night.’ Without understanding anything she always hugged me before I left home. I wanted to get out of that gang. I tried to escape many times. I badly wanted to save my life. But I knew no one, nobody came to help me since I wake up in this bastard world. Everyone used me, played with my heart. Left me devastated and I had no idea where I was going.

That was a rainy day, it was raining heavily; I was standing under a tree, was waiting for sunset. I did not even notice at the beggar sitting in the wheelchair at the other side of the tree. I was crying hard and the rain was pouring into me. I had no idea how long I screamed in anger, in agony. I wanted to return to my daughter, I did not want to go to anywhere with any stranger. I was very tired. Tired of being used at every place by everyone. Suddenly I heard the crack of the wheelchair; he coughed loudly to get my attention. I did not try to sweep off my tears and told him that I had no money for a beggar. He handed me a fifty taka note and said that was all he had. He warned me about the coming storm and requested me to go back to home. I was numb. The money was already wet but I kept that dearly in my plum. I saw him pushing his wheelchair while moving in the rain; saw him going far away from me. For the first time in my life that evening someone gave me something without using me. That day I cried deeply while returning to my hut. That day for the first time I felt loved.

In that same monsoon, I continued to search for him and after several days I found him sitting under a tree. I came to know that his wife left him because of his disability. By gaining a lot of courage I told him that I won’t be able to love again but I could push his wheelchair for a lifetime. That moment, he smiled and said, ‘Not everyone can push wheelchair without love’. We are married for four years. During our marriage, he promised me no matter what happen he will never let me cry again. Some days we are not able to have lunch. Even today we are having one plate of chotpoti and sharing together. We already passed many difficult days, months and years. But I never cried again by standing under any unknown tree. Abbas Miah kept his promise.”

Now the show is on full swing with a remarkably high TRP. The 3-hour-long Dussehra special show started with a the actual host Nagarjuna in a video clipping. Fans were shocked to see that he was talking to them not from Hyderabad but Manali. He then introduced Samantha as the guest host, surprising the digital audiences. The contestants were also thrilled to see actress Samantha hosting the show. The guest host started the show asking the viewers to excuse her proficiency in Telugu and went to share her feedback to the contestants. She appreciated Ariyana’s game, never missed a chance to taunt Avinash, and complimented the gameplay of a few contestants as well.

 

 

Nagarjuna has shoots scheduled for the upcoming weeks for his movie ‘Wild Dog’ which is happening in Manali. Now with that holding up his dates it is becoming difficult to fly to Hyderabad every weekend to shoot for Bigg Boss and now the makers are planning  to bring in a temporary host.

Now according to the latest media reports from Tollywood it is being speculated that Bigg Boos team is all set to sign Nagarjuna’s daughter-in-law Samantha Akkineni to host the show temporally even for the coming week. The actress has a number of movies in her piepeline including g ‘Kaathu Vaakula Rendu Kadhal’ and a few female-centric film.

A Devotional Drama! https://jfwonline.com/article/watch-nayanthara-as-mookuthi-amman-is-setting-the-internet-on-fire-a-devotional-drama/ RJ Balaji’s directorial debut which is co-directed by NJ Saravanan titled Mookuthi Amman released its first look on February 29th revealing the actress’s appearance in the film. The film stars Nayanthara in its titular role and is a throwback to the devotional films of the 90s.

The trailer released is trending. In the trailer, Nayanthara looks strikingly beautiful as the titular goddess. Mookuthi Amman also stars RJ Balaji, who plays a journalist waiting for a miracle to happen.  Mookuthi Amman takes his aid to bring down an evil greedy godman. The trailer opens with the dialogue that the one who says he is an atheist is better than the one who claims his god is better than the other’s. The video also touches upon the issue of water pollution, albeit in an interesting manner. The movie looks seems to be a comedy drama that will touch upon social issues.  l

Tollywood superstar Mahesh Babu took to his Twitter space and shared the trailer’s Telugu version. Sharing it, Mahesh Babu wrote on his Twitter space, “Happy to release the trailer of @RJ_Balaji’s directorial debut #AmmoruThalli starring himself and Nayanthara, releasing this Wishing him and the entire team very best.” As soon as the trailers were released, audience, who were desperately waiting for the trailer, took to the comments section and expressed their excitement.

WATCH THE TRAILER:

 

While interviewing him, RJ Balaji said that he wanted, “someone with a larger-than-life image” to play the role of Amman. He also said, “I did not write this role particularly for Nayanthara, though I wanted someone of her stature… an actress with that majestic screen presence.” It was an unexpected call from the Lady Superstar that made him narrate this script to her, he added.

Earlier Radha Ravi had shamed Nayanthara for earlier for a similar reason where the actor said that women like Nayanthara cannot even be imagined in the role of an actress. Nayanthara then reminded him through a press release that answered every man who body-shames or slut-shames another woman at public forums.

On the professional front, Nayanthara is currently shooting for Thalaivar 169 directed by Siva, Mookuthi Amman directed by RJ Balaji, Netri Kann produced by Vignesh Shivan and Kaathuvaakkula Rendu Kadhal starring Vijay Sethupathi and Samantha Akkineni in the lead and directed by Vignesh Shivan.

With Suresh Chakravarthy’s talk on groupism to Anitha Sampath garnering the sympathy of her fans, this year’s reality show seems to be going ontrack. The first elimination of the show has been Rekha who created a stir few months ago addressing a controversy that is directly proportionate to the #metoo controversy.

Post her elimination, Rekha took to social media to express her emotions. “Love you both and missing you badly my challakuttuies…..ummmmmma,” wrote Rekha dedicating the post to Balaji Murugadoss and Shivani Narayanan.

Now Rekha has been interviewed after her elmination and here’s what she had to say. “I had so many questions about the show. My daughter is a big fan of Bigg Boss and watches it in multiple languages. I have seen only bits and pieces and have wondered if it was scripted. Be it the crying or arguments – I thought it was too extreme. I wanted to experience it and so, I decided to be part of it. I wanted to know how it feels to live independently without any communication with the outside world. Now that I’ve been there for nearly two weeks, I can say that my opinion about the show has changed. We can’t communicate to anyone outside and all that you watch inside the house is real. I must say that I enjoyed it to the maximum,” stated Rekha.

She further added, “I am obsessed about keeping things clean and living my life with a certain discipline. When I tried to enforce that, they thought I was being rude. I wasn’t rude, but I was speaking to 20-year-olds and realised that I should change my tone. Everyone felt that I had this childish behaviour, but that is who I am,” further adding, “I learnt that you need to think and talk. Sometimes, you go with the flow and it ends being misinterpreted. So, that’s something I learnt. In hindsight, I feel that I was too childish and innocent. I could have played much better. In the ‘Eviction-free pass’ task, I felt I gave up too easily. I want to enter the house again as I’ve understood the game only now,” she smiles, adding, “But I am so thankful for all the love I am receiving. I never expected this… in fact, that’s what makes me want to go back to the house again.”

Her impeccable acting has received a lot of fan following in the regional film industry. Aditi has only been seen as a private person and she never talks much about her personal life either. However, a recent video by MissMalini and Pepperfry, where Aditi Rao Hydari shows around the house only goes to prove that the actress has a rather beautiful taste. Her house situated in Versova, Mumbai is simple, elegant and ecstatic.

Her bachelorette pad is definitely every single woman’s dream home.  Everything from her little memoirs from around the world to the crazy paintings on the wall to her quirky furniture pieces – Aditi’s apartment completely screams ‘home sweet home’. She has statement furniture items that stand out, adding an edge to her home decor. It’s an inviting space and, by her own admission, she always has friends and family over.

Later, I thought why not put up a strong fight and win the trophy. And when that happened, everything felt surreal. I never expected this kind of support from people.”

Well, the love of his life Yasmin Nadiah is a martial artist who has also worked in a few Malaysian films. She has also worked with Mugen in some of these films. Unlike Tharshan’s love interest who is very expressive about their relationship, Nadiah is a very private person who does not prefer sharing much about her personal life.

Mugen Rao celebrated his birthday on October 20th this year in his country Malaysia and it was an romantic celebration with his girlfriend Yasmin Nadiah. The couple have shown to the world once again how much they love each other by their close bonding giving their followers couple goals. Yasmin took to Instagram to pen down an emotional beautiful message wishing Mugen on his special day.

“It has certainly been a roller coaster ride of a year that flew like a blink!

From buying groceries, building BBQ Pit, setting up mini nursery at home, cooking, watching movies, caring for each other and trying to work out 😅! It’s been us, just being us!

The fun of us doing silly stuffs, our family times and cuddles are definitely moments to cherish! It wouldn’t have been anymore joyful especially during the pandemic without you!

People say, home is what we make! To me, you are my home, and my adventure all at once! Just know that I appreciate you so much and ever grateful! The rest, I’ll say it to you in person. Hehe 😜

You have a thousand miles of journey ahead, and regardless what universe has for you, I’d never stop wishing the best for you and appreciating you!Happy Birthday Pappu ❤️@themugenrao” she wrote

This is How Much Virat Kohli Earns For a Single Paid Instagram Post! https://jfwonline.com/article/shocking-this-is-how-much-virat-kohli-earns-for-a-single-paid-instagram-post/ Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli are without a doubt one of India’s favourite couples. The couples dreamy Tuscan weddings pictures went viral but that was just the beginning. The actress and her cricketer husband have never held back from showering their love for each other on social media, which is why fans and friends flock to like and comment on their posts.

The nationwide lockdown has enabled the couple to spend some much needed alone time in their Mumbai home which was quite impossible otherwise due to their  busy schedules. Recently the couple also announced that they will be welcoming their first child very soon. 

In a beautiful Instagram picture, Bollywood actress Anushka Sharma and Indian cricket Captain Virat Kohli confirmed that the couple is expecting their first child. She has also confirmed that the baby is due January 2021. Taking to social media, Anushka wrote, “And then, we were three! Arriving Jan 2021 ❤️🙏.”

Thank you @twinklerkhanna for nominating me. Here is what’s in my kids dabba! #Tweakindia #WhatsInYourKidsDabba – Chola masala, Bhendi poriyal & some yellow rice to go with it! This dish is their favourite because it satisfies their Indian food cravings, so its on the kids menu once every week. I like to keep it simple with what I feed them. A healthy and wholesome meal with small indulgences. A tip that I always stick by is using a spoonful of pure ghee or cold-pressed coconut oil while cooking. It’s non-greasy and easy on their tiny stomachs! Here is my recipe for the Bhendi poriyal: 250 grams bhindi 1 tsp oil ½ tsp mustard seeds ½ tsp cumin seeds 8 to 10 curry leaves 50 gms chopped onion 1 green chilli chopped 50 gms fresh coconut A pinch of asafoetida (hing) 1 tsp turmeric powder 1 tbsp chopped coriander leaves salt as per taste Method:- Wash bhindi twice and dry it. Wipe them with a tissue or dry cloth Chop them round and keep aside Take a pan and heat the oil, add mustard seeds, cumin seeds & saute Then add hing, turmeric, chopped onions & curry leaves Sprinkle some fresh coconut and add the bhindi Cook on slow flame Salt according to taste Garnish with coriander. I nominate @shilpashirodkar73, @the_dabbawali and & @chef_sheetalvanjari to let us have a peek at what they put on their little one’s plate.

How beautiful is the interior decor and their family?

In an interview with an English daily, Namrata was asked of she regrets giving up a flourishing career for marriage. The actress stated, “You’re right. I didn’t. I never sought roles or asked any director to sign me on. I did some really big films like Vaastav with Sanjay Dutt, Pukar with Anil Kapoor and Jab Pyar Kissi se Hota Hai with Salman Khan. But I didn’t make any effort to cash in on their success. On the other hand, my sister (actress Shilpa Shirodkar) was career-driven. I was laidback and never bothered about the box-office etc. I guess I’m making up for my own lack of interest in my career by being so keenly interested in my husband’s career.”

She further added, “There was never a burning desire to be a top actress in the first place. I happily gave up my career to marry Mahesh. And luckily, in the 14 years of our marriage, there has never been a single moment of regret or bitterness. People find it hard to believe that we’re so happy together after all these years.”

On asking if she would be okay with her kids Gautham and Sitara becoming actors, she said that it would be too stressful for them in the industry but ultimately if that’s what they wish to do she wouldn’t stand in their way. “I don’t compromise on my motherly duties. Everything else comes later.”

Namrata is currently handling Mahesh’s professional life. On asking if the former actress takes every decision, she said, “It just seems that way. Of course, he consults me on all important matters. But Mahesh is a fiercely independent-minded individual. He respects my opinion. But that doesn’t mean he will blindly accept all my decisions.”

The character-depth of most of his characters is inimitable and he is until now creating a benchmark with his class-apart filmmaking techniques and sturdy storylines.

In a recent, the director and his wife Geethanjali Selvaraghavan confirmed that they are expecting their third child. Taking to social media the couple even posted some beautiful pregnancy pictures. Now she has posted more fun stylish maternity shoot images.

Sharing a couple of photos from the stylish photoshoot, Gitanjali posted, “Mothers and mothers to be are strong, beautiful, fierce, fun and sexy too! And it has nothing to do with how they look but how they feel!!!!! What do you say ladies?? Can we get a HELL YEAH!!!?? hank you all for the tremendous outpouring of love you have sent my way for the last few posts!!

Selvaraghavan’s recent direction was NGK starring Suriya, Rakul Preet Singh and Sai Pallavi in the lead role. The film was most anticipated but fell flat due to its weak narrative. However, Selvaraghavan has a lot of anticipation for the kind of peculiar stories he chooses to direct. However, his combination with Dhanush is the most loved one. Thulluvadho Ilamai, Kadhal Kondein, Pudhupettai, and Mayakkam Enna were critically acclaimed.

As the fifth film, it has been confirmed that Selvaraghavan is all set to direct Dhanush in yet another film of his and it is the sequel of his cult, blockbuster film Pudhupettai. At a recent college event, Selvaraghavan made the announcement. “People have been asking me about my next film after NGK. I’m making this announcement just for you. I am saying this just for my fans. I am going to team up with Dhanush for my next film. We were discussing what to do next and decided to make Pudhupettai 2,” said the director.

Director Gitanjali and director Selvaraghavan are all set to welcome their third child in early 2021.

From Lakshmy Ramakrishnan’s comment to Peter Paul’s wife and son’s accusations, Vanitha has tossed them all out of  her life with her comments. However, looks like it all is not well in their wedding. It has been reported that Peter and Vanitha got into a heated argument after drunk filmmaker misbehaved with her recently in Goa. Reportedly, she beat him up and has also thrown him out of her house. However, there is no official word regarding the same by the actress yet. Ravindar Chandrasekharan confirmed the news with a cryptic message on Facebook.

Vanitha now  in a long Twitter post has opened up about her marriage with Peter Paul. She exposed that they really are serious issues and she facing a lot of problems. However she is not ready to give up yet keeping in mind her children and family.

Read Vanitha’s Statement Draft

Vanitha’s statement reads “To those who think I broke a home..I made a home with someone who didn’t have a home and family for many years..he was in pain and so was I..we loved laughed and lived thru the worst times beginning from covid pandemic to the media circus which was purposely created around us. I believed nothing could break us..next came a health scare where I was terrified and shattered that I was going to lose him 2 times within a month..it was the worst pain and feeling.. I was so grateful to god to be able to bring him back home alive twice …especially this year”

Life changes after ur loved one is sick or going thru recovery of something major in health..it was my constant worry and job to care for him..I couldn’t bare the pain of losing him..even today I remain in the same pain..some sadistic people are still making money and fame out. Out of my life and crushing my heart by not caring enough and make fun of or discuss about 2 individuals personal life…they find happiness in others pain…I am an honest straight forward person who shares everything good and bad in my life to the world ..”

“I dont hide anything as I have nothing to hide..taking advantage of this isn’t nice..all I would like to say now is I am going thru another major challenge and I am trying my best to see how I can sort it out as it’s not something I’m able to change or ignore as its about life. And death..I’m in immense pain and my heart is so heavy..I am so scared as love is the only thing I want and am scared to lose..I am being bold in facing this challenge without disturbing my work and my kids..my life has been a constant struggle and this isn’t something new to me. Losing in love is something I’ve gotten used to but I’ve always moved on and kept going becoming stronger..believing in love and being disappointed in it is very very painful and unbearable but after a point u become numb..losing a life in front of ur eyes is the most painful.

“I’m having to deal with that without having control..I cannot say I wish this hadn’t happened because life is a lesson and I’m still learning..I’m being strong and facing it with a pinch of salt..I kindly request you to not come to any theories by reading fake news.I dont deserve. To be abused or teased about as the truth is I never did anything wrong..I gave love to someone who needed it..I’m in a situation that all my dreams and hope for in my life might crash..I’m being positive but not convinced as its something which scares me..I’m strong and Bold woman who has faced a lo in life…I’m hoping this too shall pass..please dont speculate anything as it really hurts..love is the only thing that can crush me..I believe in miracles and hoping for one..whatever is destined I’m ready to face it as it is inevitable”

“I dont have to clarify anything more to anyone at this point as it’s my life and only I can deal with it…and I dont have a habit of exposing my partner and playing blame game so I can look good and gain sympathy..I’m grown up …I didn’t expect this but it happened and I will. Make the right decision keeping my kids and the people around me in mind..I hope and pray for the miracle but if not I’ll face It too..life still has to go on…nothing can break me anymore…lastly im not giving up yet”

When choosing to break free from clichés, disciplining one’s talent into (what Aishwarya defines as) “fitting the role” is what it takes to stay in the film industry; the entry to it is barred by conventional expectations that are hard-hitting.  

 

This year, the Covid-19 outbreak ensured Aishwarya was away from the camera for six months until she turned cover girl for our October issue. After months of staying indoors Aishwarya got dolled up in four beautiful grand festive outfits from The Pride Shop.  Now with things slowly moving towards the new normal, she’s back to being busier than ever, juggling between her shoots and promotions for her upcoming film. 

“Feels like going back to school after a long break. It is a nice feeling though, to be back shooting,” she says excitedly. “We are on screen after six months and it will take at least a couple of days to settle. The first day for me felt different. I wasn’t getting my shots right. But over the day, I got better and I’m sure tomorrow will be great!” 

For her first look Aishwarya is all grace and glory up wearing a dramatic pastel-green gown with ruffles and layers that brings out the playful and beautiful personality in her!

For her next look she is seen covered in pretty pink blooms, as she sports a breezy blush-and-gold lehenga that was made for celebrations. She poses with such ease and talks about her experience in the film industry.

“I’m a foodie. I love food” says Aiswarya as she reveals her top three picks of her favorite comfort food as she gets ready for her next look. Aishwarya next adorns an embellished silver and gold saree. A timeless piece that can see you through the festive season and celebrations in the years to come!

“Every time before a movie releases, it is nerve-wracking, really! No matter how good the content is you can never really predict if it’ll do well. Although I was sure about movies like Kanna and Kaaka Muttai before the release, only after seeing the audience’s response did we get breathe relief,” discloses Aishwarya. “If the reviews and responses are good only then the mood for celebration begins. Generally, I celebrate my movie success more than festivals,” she smiles. Here Aishwarya dances to the beats of a fun, festive, maroon mirrored lehenga! The versatility and the jazz of mirror work has helped it become a favourite in most millennial wardrobes.

Tue, 20 Oct 2020 06:55:02 +0000 https://jfwonline.com/article/trending-nayanthara-will-be-taking-a-pay-cut-for-her-next-film/ TRENDING: Nayanthara Will Be Taking A Pay Cut For Her Next Film! https://jfwonline.com/article/trending-nayanthara-will-be-taking-a-pay-cut-for-her-next-film/ The after effects of a strict lockdown have been very strong. Several individuals have lost their jobs, their source of income and their livelihood has been uprooted. The film industry is no different. All the members of the technical and backend team, all the wage workers are struggling to run their family. What once fed them is now locked but fortunately, several actors, directors and producers have been contributing a lot of funds to keep their coworkers afloat.

Apart from that, the producers are also facing a major backlash and do not have the funds to pay actors and actresses with huge remunerations. Several stars have agreed to go on a pay cut for their upcoming films until everything returns to normal. The latest to join that list is Nayanthara, fondly known as the Lady Superstar by her fans.

According to reports, Nayanthara is taking a pay cut amidst the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic in the country. The actress is among many who has sacrificed to compensate producers’ losses due to lockdown. During an interview with TOI, Kunchacko was asked if he is also taking a pay cut, to this he replied, “For me, there’s only gain – to work during the pandemic and be part of such a good project, which also has a lot of great talents, including Theevandi director Fellini TP who is involved in its creative side.” He further added that he was the one who suggested Nayanthara’s name for the film. Apparently, the Mookuthi Amman actress immediately agreed to do the film.

Talking about the film, Kunchacko said, “It’s not a pandemic-oriented project but it’s a movie that can be shot in a controlled environment.”

 

The Malayalam film has been titled Nizhal and the first look of the poster was released on Facebook yesterday by actor Fahadh Faasil.

On the professional front, Nayanthara has Mookuthi Amman, Kaathuvaakkula Rendu Kadhal, Netri Kann and Annathae.

Mon, 19 Oct 2020 07:22:59 +0000 https://jfwonline.com/article/my-first-film-was-accidental-bride-to-be-kajal-aggarwal-looks-backs-at-her-journey-in-cinema/ “My first film was accidental” Bride-to-Be Kajal Aggarwal Looks Backs at her Journey in Cinema! https://jfwonline.com/article/my-first-film-was-accidental-bride-to-be-kajal-aggarwal-looks-backs-at-her-journey-in-cinema/ Last month, rumours began doing the rounds that actress Kajal Aggarwal is engaged to be married to a businessman based out of Mumbai. Kajal has now taken to social media to officially confirm the news. Now the actress is all set to get married on the 30th in Mumbai in a small private ceremony.

Over the years the actress has climbed up the ladder in the film industry. But did you know that she never planned getting into the film industry? Here’s the journey she narrated in a throwback cover interview with JFW!

‘My first film was accidental and then there was no looking back. Here I am, 26 films old’

After finishing her Bachelors in Mass Media, Kajal had a brief stint as an intern with cosmetic giant L’Oreal. She was part of the marketing and brand management team, post which she had her eye set on pursuing an MBA degree. She was always active in theatre but she never dreamt of making a career out of it. “In L’Oreal, I used to organize a lot of shoots and I bumped into a couple of photographers who insisted I get my portfolio done.” Kajal took their advice without hesitation and had her pictures taken. “I had no time to circulate my portfolio though, considering I was too preoccupied with what I was doing. Fortunately, the photographers themselves sent around my shots and the next thing I knew, I got my first film offer in a full-fledged commercial movie.” An offer to be a part of the silver screen still did not distract her from chasing her actual goal – going abroad and pursuing an MBA. “I thought an opportunity in films would look good on my resume and it would show some kind of versatility while I was looking to apply for courses abroad.”  However, her debut role was so effective that she had to let go of plan A and embrace plan B, a career in films which she loves very much at the moment. “My parents were extremely supportive when I told them about my decision. My dad was in fact more encouraging than my mom. My family has been my backbone and even today, my mom travels with me for all my shoots. I don’t think I would have done so well for myself if not for them.”

‘Every role I have played so far has been very satisfying. It does not matter how the movies have fared at the box office’

Kajal’s career graph has been a steady one, barring a few box office failures in the Telugu and Tamil film industries. It took her a while to get recognized, to feel the taste of success. “I have worked with some of the best directors in the industry and I don’t think everyone has had that kind of opportunity, especially at such an early stage in their careers. In fact I think my films have done fairly well at the box office.” Losses according to her are just a part and parcel of life and she claims that she has not faced a massive loss or any major down in her career so far. “I look at losses as stepping stones and I am quite happy with the way things have turned out to be.”

‘I believe my acting appeal is one that is natural. I don’t act, I react’

Kajal says she uses a lot of emotions in her acting and tries to actually put herself in the shoes of the character she is playing. She also admits that she shares a very good rapport with all her directors. “I get easily influenced by my director, which is my job at the end of the day. I go by the way he thinks and explains a particular scene to me but I use my head nonetheless.” She is known for her unending list of questions on sets while shooting. “I keep asking endless questions to the directors, much to their annoyance but that does not stop me from clarifying my doubts. They also love interacting with me. I think it is a combination of me thinking on my terms and also being reaffirmed by the director.”

On the professional front, Kajal has Indian 2 alongside Kamal Haasan, Siddharth, Rakul Preet Singh and Priya Bhavani Shankar among others.

Just because 🥰🥰 @ranadaggubati

A post shared by miheeka (@miheeka) on

ctor Rana Daggubati’s love life has always been a hot topic in the industry. All speculations were finally put to rest when the Baahubali actor took to Instagram to announce his engagement with Miheeka Bajaj. The actor in a live session with  actor-producer Lakshmi Manchu opened up about his engagement and upcoming plans for the wedding.

“It’s the person that’ll make you do that,” he told Lakshmi when asked about what made him realise that he was ready to ‘settle down’. “You meet the right person and good things happen and you say go ahead,” he said with a grin.

The beautiful love story has now gone into its new phase – marriage. The couple tied the knot on 8th August. It was an elegant intimate wedding in the presence of only a few close family members. Pictures from the couples wedding are flowing in and we are in awe.

During an interview with CinemaExpress, Rana was asked if he thinks life will change post marriage with Miheeka. To this, he quickly denied and said, “She is so supportive and always keeps things easy for me.”

Rana had recently revealed how he proposed Miheeka. The Telugu star said, “She knew where I’m getting at when I called her. And then she met me in person, that’s it. I remember I said a bunch of things together. For me, it was serious. It was commitment. When I met her, that’s the time I felt I am ready to do this. It was that simple, for real. I never thought about it. I met her, I liked her, and that’s it. I found love.”

It is only normal for couples to plan out their honeymoon post the wedding. However, considering the scenario that would be the last thing this filmy Jodi would be planning for at the moment. However, Rana has posted a picture of doing something more important for the time-being. The challenge #harahaitohbharahai has been going around for a while now. Rana was challenged by Shruti Haasan to take up the challenge now and plant a tree. “Little delayed but here are 2  one for the #Adipurush #Prabhas and the other for The rockstar @shrutihaasan here you go!! #GreenIndiaChallenge nominating everyone who follows me and has the means to….go for it! RT for a greener India!!” wrote the actor on his Twitter handle posting a picture of the same.

Fri, 16 Oct 2020 05:23:00 +0000 https://jfwonline.com/article/t-rajendrans-comment-on-simbu-and-trishas-wedding-creates-more-speculations/ T Rajendran’s Comment On Simbu And Trisha’s Wedding Creates More Speculations! https://jfwonline.com/article/t-rajendrans-comment-on-simbu-and-trishas-wedding-creates-more-speculations/ A lot of online and media reported that Trisha is planning to tie the knot with Nayanthara’s ex-boyfriend and Tamil actor, director and singer, Simbu. Trisha and simbu have acted in many film together, the couple’s on-screen chemistry is on point, it will be a lovely news if it is true. The rumor has been doing rounds after Rana’s engagement but is stronger than ever before now, making a lot wonder if it is true.  The last time they worked together was in  the short film titled ‘Karthik Dial Seytha Yenn’ is a sequence to the hit romance  Vinnaithaandi Varuvaayaa.  Directed by Gautham Menon, starring Simbu and Trisha. The movie follows a phone conversation between the two iconic characters after they continue to stay in touch for a decade. Karthik is stuck indoors and is worried about the lockdown and the whole situation as it affects his career in movies. The two speak about how their journey in their life has been and their fondness for each other.

Later from Trisha’s team it was stated that that is nothing but a mere rumour. However, Simbu’s father and actor-turned-politician T Rajendran during a recent press interaction at one of his political campaigns was asked if his son would be tying the knot to Trisha. Instead of rubbishing it as a baseless rumour, the actor said no comments which went on to create further speculations.

Actor Simbu has been creating quite the news during this lockdown. With the fitness challenge he did, he was surely the talk of the town. Apart from that, Simbu has been quite active on social media. He has been engaging his fans and followers with various lockdown activities. One of his very recent was the cooking fiasco. Simbu was seen cooking Chicken curry for his parents in a video. He was seen cooking with his friend, actor VTV Ganesh.

In the video uploaded by Simbu, VTV Ganesh is seen making fun of him and saying that the actors wife is left with no job to do as the actor is cooking as well. To this statement Simbu replied by saying that a wife who comes home is a companion, and she should not be treated like a maid. This has won the hearts of netizens who applauded the actor. The video also won the heart of kazhugu actress Bindu Madhavi. The actress who is also friends with Simbu expressed her delight and wrote through  her twitter account, “Right attitude sim we all waiting to meet her….”

#ShameOnVijaySethupathi started trending on Twitter and the actor was trolled for playing Muttiah Muralitharan in the biopic 800.

“Always admired Vijay Sethupathi as an actor. But now he shattered respect I had on him now by making this traitor’s life history who openly supported modern day dictator Rajapaksa. Murali himself said 2009 was his happiest year of his life #ShameOnVijaySethupati (sic),” wrote one user on Twitter.

Now the makers of the film have released an official statement clearing the air about the film’s genre.

“It came to our notice that our film ‘800’, the biopic of Muthiah Muralitharan featuring Vijay Sethupathi in the lead, is being politicized in many ways. However, we want to clarify that 800 is purely a sports biography film about the legendary cricketer Muthiah Muralitharan. The film is a journey about a man who hails from the Tamil migrant community, going on to become the highest wicket taker of all time. The film does not make any political statement favouring any community,” the statement read.

The shoot is et to begin  at the beginning of 2021 and is set to release at the end of next year. The film will be made primarily in Tamil language.

Wed, 14 Oct 2020 10:11:51 +0000 https://jfwonline.com/article/what-is-the-controversial-tanishq-ad-campaign-and-why-is-boycotttanishq-trending-on-internet/ What is The Controversial Tanishq ad Campaign and Why Is #Boycotttanishq Trending on Internet! https://jfwonline.com/article/what-is-the-controversial-tanishq-ad-campaign-and-why-is-boycotttanishq-trending-on-internet/ A popular jewellery brand Tanishq is currently under a lot of heat for an add campaign it released earlier this week.  The ad shows a Hindu daughter in law in a Muslim household. The family seems to be celebrating Hindu customs. The ad starts off by showing a pregnant Hindu woman walking along with her Muslim mother-in-law for her baby shower ceremony. The daughter-in-law then asks her mother-in-law that “this ceremony is not a tradition in your home…?” to which the in-law replies “Isn’t it a tradition to keep daughters happy everywhere?”

The ad campaign went viral on release. A group of people in the internet started bashing the ad and it was  subjected to so much hate. The group believed that the ad was promoting “love Jihad’. Love Jihad or Romeo Jihad is an conspiracy theory alleging that Muslim men target women belonging to non-Muslim communities for conversion to Islam by feigning love.

The brand took down the advertisement  after it was being targeted viciously by social media trolls. This is when the hashtag ##BoycottTanishq started trending in the internet.

 

 

 

Actress Kangana who is currently shooting for late CM J Jayalalitha’s Biopic Amma joined in the conversation through twitter. “The concept wasn’t as much a problem as the execution was,the fearful Hindu girl apologetically expressing her gratitude to her in-laws for the acceptance of her faith, Isn’t she the woman of the house? Why is she at their mercy? Why so meek and timid in her own house? Shameful.” she wrote

Amid all this the jewellery brand’s store in Gujarat was attacked by a mob. The manager of Tanishq’s Gandhidham store was reportedly made to write an apology note by the mob on Monday night. “The ad is shameful and we apologise (sic),” the manager is said to have written in the note, which was pasted by the mob on the store.

On Tuesday, Tanishq issued a statement saying it was “deeply saddened with the inadvertent stirring of emotions” and that it was withdrawing the video. “We are deeply saddened with the inadvertent stirring of emotions and withdraw this film keeping in mind the hurt sentiments and well being of our employees, partners and store staff,” the statement read.
https://twitter.com/TanishqJewelry/status/1316033929791467520
While the internet is a wonderful place that has been helping to broaden our minds and move into a more accepting culture, this kind of backlash for ads celebrating diversity is quite saddening. However another section of the internet came to defense for the brand’s ad and said that there was nothing wrong in promoting secularism, something that India has been known for from the beginning of it’s constitution.

Lakshmi Menon debuted in the Tamil film industry with the film Sundarapandian and went on to do several films including Karthi’s Kamban and Jayam Ravi’s Miruthan. Eventually, the actress’s last film was Vijay Sethupathi’s Rekka after which she took a brief break to complete her education.

The actress has made a comeback now and her pictures are doing the rounds on social media. Recently she took to instagram to answer few questions posted by her fans. In her interaction a fan asked her if she was single. For this the actress answered “NO” with a blushing smile emoji and a heart. We wonder if she really is in a relationship or if it was just posted as a joke. However her response went viral a lot of speculation is being stirred.

The actress also replied that her favorite actor in Tamil is Dhanush and her favorite movie in her career is ‘Jigarthanda’.

Recently speculations were rife post her comeback that the actress would be a part of Bigg Boss Tamil’s fourth season. A rather frustrated Menon lashed out at the speculations. ” I am not participating in the Bigg Boss show. I am not going to be washing plates and cleaning toilets for others for now and never and also fighting on camera in the name of a show. I hope hereafter nobody comes up with speculations of me going to some shit show,” said Menon.

This has not gone down well with the fans of the show or actor Kamal Haasan. While some lashed back at her for calling names, others simply said that the actress is not being modest. A frustrated Menon responded to these trolls stating, “In my home, I clean my own thing and I don’t expect to clean up things that I used. Likewise, I do not like to clean someone else’s plates and toilets. This what I’m. I don’t have to go around explaining to people why I do what I do. It is my way of living.”

Lakshmi Menon has been very vocal about her opinions. Recently, the actress lashed out at a fan for asking her to get married and not ruin her life getting back into films.

A rather frustrated Lakshmi Menon took a screen-grab of the same and commented, “Look at this Loving, humble, caring well-wisher of mine thinks an angel like me should get married to someone and find my peace. Pathetic, just pathetic.”

On the professional front, Lakshmi Menon has Yung Mung Sung, Sippai, and an untitled next with actor Gautham Karthik.

Prasanna attended all the modeling shows and movies that Sneha featured in. The couple has acted together in the film Achchamundu Achchamundu. They got married in 2012. They have a son Vihan who was born in the year 2015 and daughter Adhyantha who was born last year.

Although they haven’t been seen in many films together, the couple has always been adored for their real life PDA and their cutesy advertisements. As Sneha celebrated her birthday, Prasanna had the most beautiful wish. “Years may run fast but my world is still stuck in the moment we met n fell in love. Nothing has been so precious ever. Everything I have told you in all these years is not even a drop in the ocean of my love for you. It’s you in every drop of my soul.

A post shared by Sneha Prasanna (@realactress_sneha) on

Earlier in an exclusive interview with JFW, Sneha said:

One could get all the help they ever needed but being a mother for the first time is no walk in the park. Sneha says, “Motherhood is everything to me. It was surreal – the whole experience from the hospital to home. I have another life in my hands now. I was clueless when I was pregnant, but I have come to realize what a big job it is. Sometimes it is tiring, sometimes it is so much fun, but overall it is so rewarding. Waking up, eating, sleeping and walking with your child every part of the way is a totally amazing experience.  But it is all a learning process. I know I am responsible for one more person that is my husband, who is but a child as well. The response just kicks into action immediately and there is fear every minute. I have learned to understand the things my son loves in life and he has learned the good and bad of life. It is scary but it is oh so wonderful!”

“If I could do it all again, I would do it even better.”

The entire experience was scary at first, but pleasant later. It has opened up a whole new side of Sneha that she never knew existed. “If I could go back in time and give myself some advice, I would probably tell myself to be more relaxed and enjoy the moment. The first time there is fear, doubt and confusion as well, but I have so much more clarity now and I am enjoying, watching the growth of my child. Now I can tell a new mother what to expect and even give some advice.”

Tue, 13 Oct 2020 06:37:19 +0000 https://jfwonline.com/article/can-eating-papaya-cause-miscarriage-six-pregnancy-myths-and-misconceptions-all-women-need-to-know/ Can Eating papaya Cause Miscarriage? Six Pregnancy Myths and Misconceptions All Women Need To Know! https://jfwonline.com/article/can-eating-papaya-cause-miscarriage-six-pregnancy-myths-and-misconceptions-all-women-need-to-know/ Pregnancy is a time of joy and happiness. The couple should be able to look forward to the arrival of the baby with anticipation and exhilaration. It is a natural event in the life of a woman and therefore should be treated as such. Unfortunately, many couples are filled with anxiety and apprehension due to myths and misconceptions generated by family and friends.

 

As soon as a woman becomes pregnant she starts being treated like a fragile being who might break if she does any work! This is unnecessary and turns a lovely time into one filled with unwarranted restrictions.

 

Every culture has its own myths and misconceptions associated with pregnancy. In this column and the next, I will be answering queries about these common worries.

 

  1. I am four months pregnant. I have low back pain in the evenings when I come back from work. I like to lie down flat on my back because it seems to give me great relief. My mother-in-law says I absolutely should not lie on my back. Is that true?

 

  1. That is not true at all. You can sleep in any position that you are comfortable in. 

As your pregnancy progresses, the size of the uterus will become much bigger. As the uterus becomes heavier, it tends to press on the major vein that returns blood from your legs to your heart. If you lie on your back you may feel giddy or breathless. Therefore, in the last two or three months it might be better for you to try and sleep on your side, as much as possible. However, it feels good to be flat on your back when you are having low back pain, so lying on your back for a short while is fine.

Of course, when you are sleeping you cannot control what position you are in. If you wake up on your back, it is probably because you were uncomfortable on your side and when you were asleep you just changed position. This will not harm your baby in any way.

Women who develop high blood pressure in pregnancy are advised to sleep on their side. This is because the weight of the uterus on the major blood vessels sets off mechanisms that can aggravate the blood pressure.

 

  1. Is it true that when I turn while sleeping, I should sit up, turn to the other side and then only lie down again? My mother said that if I turned from side to side without doing that the baby’s umbilical cord would get twisted and affect my baby.

 

  1. This is a myth. We really cannot control what is going on inside the womb. Turning from side to side will not cause the cord to get knotted.

 

  1. I have a good job but have to travel almost an hour to work. I just found out that I am pregnant. My husband wants me to resign my job and take bed rest for the first three months of the pregnancy. Will I miscarry if I continue to work?

 

This is absolutely foolish. Your husband is mistaken in thinking that travelling long distance to work or working itself can make you miscarry. Travelling in an auto rickshaw, a bus or on bumpy roads cannot lead to a miscarriage.

If the pregnancy has formed normally, strenuous activity cannot lead to a miscarriage. On the other hand, if the pregnancy is abnormal and is destined to miscarry, no amount of bed rest can keep it safe. Of course, you will feel very sleepy and exhausted in the first two or three months of pregnancy. You can keep up your usual work schedule and rest whenever you get the time. Complete bed rest, however, leaves the woman feeling unwell and leads to unnecessary weight gain. There is no scientific basis for a pregnant woman to be advised complete bed rest in early pregnancy unless she has had some bleeding. In that case she will be asked to rest for a few days. 

 

  1. My wife has just confirmed a pregnancy. She has the bad habit of running up the stairs. I have asked her to avoid climbing stairs and if she absolutely has to, then climb very slowly. She refuses to listen. Will this cause a miscarriage?
  2. I realise that you are concerned for your wife and the pregnancy, but in this case your concern is misplaced. Climbing stairs, even running up the stairs, will not cause a miscarriage. The more active your wife is, the better it is for her. 
  3. My friend told me that she had missed her periods and suspecting a pregnancy she ate papaya because she did not want the pregnancy. I am three months pregnant and have a craving for papaya. Will this make me miscarry?
  4. There is an old wives’ tale that papaya, pineapple or mango can cause you to miscarry. This is absolutely untrue. Your friend must have had a delayed period but not due to a pregnancy. It was just coincidence that she got her periods after eating papaya. If she had just waited, she would have got her periods anyway!

You can eat papaya, pineapples or mangos. They will not cause your pregnancy any harm. Some people even think that sesame seed (til or ellu) can cause a miscarriage. Again, not true!

  1. My grandmother says I should not eat cold food like curds, cool drinks and ice cream because then my baby will catch a cold. Is this true?
  2. I am always amused by the number of myths surrounding food! There is no basis for what your grandmother says. Curds are a great source of protein and calcium. Eating or drinking cold stuff does not cause cold, a virus does. And anyway, the baby is safe inside the womb. It cannot catch a cold whatever you eat! Having said that, I would avoid ice creams and cool drinks because they are just empty calories and will make you put on unnecessary weight.

In her emotional Instagram post, Kajal wrote, “It gives me immense joy to share that I am getting married to Gautam Kitchlu on October 30th in Mumbai in a small private ceremony surrounded by our immediate families. This pandemic has certainly shed a sobering light on our joy, but we are thrilled to start our life together and know that all of you will be cheering us on in spirit. I thank you all for the love you have showered upon us over the years and seek blessings as we embark upon this incredible new journey. I will still continue doing what I cherish the most – entertaining my audience – now, with a whole new purpose and meaning. Thank you all for your support.”

It was earlier reported that Kajal and Gautam would tie the knot at a five star property in Mumbai. However, a source close to the couple has confirmed that none of this is true.

Plus COVID Free Safe Destinations You can Vacay To Now! https://jfwonline.com/article/5-ways-travel-will-change-after-the-pandemic-plus-covid-free-safe-destinations-you-can-vacay-to-now/ “I caught one of the last flights leaving from Dubai to India; there was a sense of emergency and confusion… I knew nothing is going to be the same.” quotes one of our avid readers Panchami on her last travel experience. Three months post that, things are still looking bleak in the travel industry.

With the pandemic completely stealing away our freedom of movement, the travel industry is facing one of its biggest challenges ever. But with the world slowly starting to reopen up, experts believe that people can start counting on travel again to create a positive impact in life.

We speak to Hari Ganapathy, Co-Founder PickYourTrail to take us through on how travel is going to look like during and post-Covid19.

“Leisure might start picking up from even July, August. In The US Airbnbs have reported almost pre-COVID levels of bookings. I believe it is going to happen in India as well. A lot of people are frustrated about being shut indoors because of the lockdown.” Says Hari

With time one can observe three levels in which travel will slowly start unraveling, starting with staycations, getaways involving domestic travel to finally international safe-zones.

 

Step 1: Staycations and boutique hotels  

 

The first level for confidence is through staycations and boutique hotels. “With a bunch of resorts up and running in good deals we are getting a lot of traction from there,” says Hari who believes that short getaways will start as soon as things start easing down a bit, say late July early August. Traveling within city limits to check-in into resorts for a cozy day or two does sound like a perfect way to unwind with very little risk involved.

 

Step 2: Domestic travel and weekend getaways 

 

From people going 100kms from home, with time flying domestic will become an option. “now you’ll observe people looking for places like Rajasthan, Northeast, places that are hit by the pandemic but at the same time are safe to go.”

 

Step 3: international safe zones 

 

The Maldives is opened up its borders this July, Srilanka is opened up this August, and Bali this September along with most islands including Fiji, Mauritius will open up post-monsoon. Australia and New Zealand will take till December, LA is already opened, by September Hari, who’s been in the industry for more than six years now, believes most of the tourist hotspots will be up and running. “I predict that all destinations will open by December because New Year’s is a huge Travel event.

 

“What percentage of travelers might go is a question mark but there will be a demand that is created and by this New Years, we should see a significant rebound in travel,” he says

What’s changing? 

 

Safety through sanitation: Ensuring Safety through hygiene and sanitation will be the key to travel. The overall hygiene of the property will become important than ever before to ensure safety.

 

Travel insurance.  Certain countries do not mandate travel insurance, Maldives, Thailand, Bali, etc don’t require one. But now travel insurance is going to be crucial. Because just in case you fall ill on your stay the last thing you want is to be spending on medical expenses.

 

Rise of budget hotels: 

With travel insurance, safety measures, and more, travel is going to become expensive. So budget optimization has to take place and more and more people are going to lean into budget hotels. If they ensure great sanitation, safety, and hygiene, do good branding, they are going to get picked up.

How is consumer behavior for picking travel destinations going to change

 

The main change is that people are going to refrain from traveling in groups. They are going to go for customised travel packages. The main theme is going to be Nature and leisure with more and more people opting for secular spots that are less crowded. For example, say between a Goa and a Gokarna, it will be safer in Gokarna compared to Goa, because it’s less crowded. And because of this tourism in tire 2 and tire 3 cites will start picking up.

“The travel industry has to adapt and change to function around the pandemic. We can’t give up and people can’t just sit at homes forever and let fear run their lives.” He ends

Social media was outraged with one particular individual in the social media name of Vijay whose comments were absolutely disgusting. Celebrities, fans and fellow cricketers voiced their opinion against the same and several wanted the Police to take action against the individual.

Talking to the press senior police officer Saurabh Singh said, “The Class 12 student from Namna Kapaya village was detained for questioning in connection with a disgusting threat message that was posted on the Instagram account of Mr Dhoni’s wife Sakshi Dhoni a few days back. We detained him for questioning after Ranchi Police informed us that the accused hails from Mundra in Kutch district.

Meanwhile, the Kutch Police stated, “We have confirmed that the boy is the same who had posted the message. He will be handed over to Ranchi police as the FIR was lodged in that city,” police said, adding that a team of Ranchi Police is likely to reach Kutch tomorrow to take custody of the teenager.

It is absolutely unfortunate how young kids have to go through something so horrendous instead of living the best of their childhood.

At the young age of 18, Sneha made her debut in a Malayalam film and then starred in the romantic film ‘Ennavale’ in 2000. Ever since that, there’s been no stopping her. A film that made her popularity grow to lengths was ‘Autograph’, followed by ‘Pudhupettai’ and several others that came out later.

Here are some of her best moments!

 

When She Essayed A Tough Role Like A Boss

Sneha’s role as Krishnaveni, a sex worker who falls in love with Dhanush and marries him in ‘Pudhupquite, was quuite a surprise. Sneha was known for her non-risky characters onscreen, however, post the release of the film she proved she could be versatile and bankable. Her portrayal of a prostitute who wants to lead a normal family life, is heartwarming. Wish we today had more actresses like her in south cinema who brought out emotions the way she did.

 

When She Starred In Films After Films In The Early 2000s

Starring in various romantic, hard-hitting, and fun films, the early 2000s belonged to Sneha. A pretty face, a heartwarming smile, and the ability to take emotions to the next level, Sneha featured in scores of films, paired opposite popular actors including Kamal Haasan!

 

She’s Won The Tamil Nadu State Film Award Thrice!

She’s more than just a pretty face – she’s got some serious acting abilities. It’s a no-brainer that she won accolades for it. Her first Tamil Nadu State Film Award was for her performance in ‘Punnagai Desam’. Her next state award was for her performance in ‘Virumbigiren’, a romantic drama that fared well. Her third one was for her measured performance in ‘Pirivom Santhippom’.

 

When She And Her Husband, Prasanna’, Were The Cutest!

The two were paired in the thriller ‘Achchamundu Achchamundu’, in roles that were praised during its release. Needless to say, their onscreen chemistry translated to offscreen too and the two were rumoured to have been dating until they confirmed it and announced their wedding in 2012. They frequently post snaps of each other going on late night dates and outings, and give couple goals!

 

When She Made A Cinema Comeback Because Why Not?!

She had a son in 2015, Vihaan, who is quite a handful and she became a hands-down mommy to take care of him. However, motherhood never stopped her from pursuing her career and she’s made a cinema comeback ever since then.

Her last appearance was in ‘Velaikkaran’ directed by Mohan Raja, a film that has allegedly chopped off a significant portion of her role. In an interview with JFW, she spoke about what kind of roles would help a comeback.

“If you are given the chance of good roles and good films, people will still appreciate you in spite of the decisions you have taken in your personal life. But it works at a 50:50. If you have chosen to come back with a script that doesn’t usually work for your image, people are likely to not appreciate that. Cinema has grown really well and there are so many women-oriented films coming up so there’s plenty in the category of comebacks one can do. The future in this regard really does look better!”

She has a Kannada flick and a Telugu one in the pipeline, hopefully they work out!

We have also always wondered how families in the olden days functioned smoothly and how there was a lot of happiness amidst so many members living in a place. Everyone worked hard to keep the happiness and life of the family and its togetherness intact. However, this story of Suraiya remembering her olden days will make us realize how the definition of families are different and sometimes hard as well. Bringing to you another story from the photojournalist GMB Akash, a story of Suraiyah’s definition of family:

“I never called my mother ‘maa’. Calling her maa was prohibited. My mother gave birth to me secretly. I heard that my father never returned to take her back. No one knew where he went. On the day of my mother’s wedding she held me in her chest she cried a lot. I was five years old and never allowed to call my mother ‘Maa’. Her sandalwood smell enchanted me for long. I told her, ‘Aunty your smell is amazing.’ Like everyone, my new father knew I was the daughter of her late sister. He pointed at me and told my grandmother, I should never visit their village. My grandma laughed and snatched me from my mother saying I would never visit them. When my mother was leaving I was locked inside our kitchen but my heart was running behind her. I was crying and saying, ‘Aunty, come back.’ Calling Maa was forbidden.

My grandfather planted a coconut tree when my grandma conceived my mother. That tree was the same age as my mother. She taught me to call that tree ‘Maa’. For twenty years I called that tree ‘Maa’. I never went to see her and she never arrived to see me. Sometimes I secretly embraced the tree and whispered how much I missed my mother. It was very difficult to sleep at night; I wanted to have her smell. Without that sandalwood smell, it was impossible to fall asleep. Most night I cried and cried bu did not utter the word ‘Maa’.

My mother sent all my expenses but I was raised alone. On my wedding day, with everything, my mother also sent me her wedding saree, the saree that my father gave her on their wedding. She was not allowed to attend my wedding. But I did not miss her, I was wearing her wedding saree which had her sandalwood smell. I had no idea if she missed me or not. No idea if she ever wanted to tell me anything. After my mother’s death, they wanted to take me to see her for last time. I did not attend her funeral. Even now to me, my mother is an eighteen-year-old beautiful girl, whose long hair and big eyes are enough to fall in love, who smells like sandalwood. Whenever I close my eyes, I see those big eyes, filled with an ocean of tears. In my dreams I tell her not to worry, I tell her how happy I am without her. Only sometimes I wanted to scream and call her ‘Maa’, ‘Maa come back’.”

Sat, 10 Oct 2020 06:35:55 +0000 https://jfwonline.com/article/world-mental-health-day-5-simple-tips-to-help-manage-anxiety-depression-during-pandemic/ World Mental Health Day: 5 Simple Tips to Help Manage Anxiety, Depression During Pandemic! https://jfwonline.com/article/world-mental-health-day-5-simple-tips-to-help-manage-anxiety-depression-during-pandemic/ Emotional Wellness is of Key importance and priority at times like these!

A draining feeling, anxiety,stress and depression, are easy to grip you in a situation like today. The world is running a rat race and at a time when everything comes to a standstill, your mind tends to wander. Everyone wants you to look at the larger picture, spending time at home, with family, getting some rest, getting back to your hobbies, catching up on sleep etc etc. But not many understand the emotional well-being in all this. Parents, kids, family, food- they definitely bring happiness to your life but is that enough for your emotional well-being?

Lockdown or quarantine, working from office or taking a vacation, at the end of the day what matters is your peace of mind.Maybe looking at a flower bloom in your garden, or nailing your mother’s chicken recipe, anything could spark joy. Talking to an industry professional, Mr Raj Narayan, who is a Neuro Linguistic programming master practitioner,  we delve into the concept of emotional well being  and how one can take steps to attaining it.

Be Aware of emotions

Most of us act before we think, which not only does damage to your relationships but also to your mental well being. To achieve a sense of equilibrium, one must be aware of what they are feeling. We tend to confuse anger with fear, anger with an unfulfilled need, anger with most of what’s going on in our minds. So, the first step if to take a step back. Analyse your emotions. Think about what’s reality and what’s just a figment of your imagination. This helps you to understand your own emotions and take charge. In situations where you are confused, take a pause and ask yourself, “ What do I really want ? “ . It’s sounds simple and is even simpler when practiced.

Stages In life

Emotional well being differs throughout life. In fact, it’s different for each individual. Our goals are different, our upbringings, our struggles , our ideas about successes and failures. Basically, our wiring is different. So, what one must do to channel the right energy to attain a sense of emotional calm and composure is cliché but true, follow your heart. When you see a child, they are unaware of any responsibilities or repercussions, they blindly follow the voice that’s inside them. And that’s why they sleep so peacefully at night. They have fulfilled their wishes, not bothered about what anyone thinks and have decided to make that one person happiest, that is themselves. In return, they bring joy to an entire home. Children teach you the best ways to live life, take pointers from those little geniuses.

 

‘ Choose a job you love, and you will not have to work a day in your life ‘

The moment you change all your “Have -To’s” to “ Want To” , all the pressure goes away. What most professionals struggle with today is attaining a work life balance. Too much stress of work is bound to affect your personal life and your emotional and physical well being. But if those 8 hours in a day, you spend in your happy space, doing the work you are passionate about, the stress also does away. What happens Is a chain reaction, you work happy, you come home happy, you make your home happy.

Mind and Body

In the current pandemic,you find a number of reactions around you.  The data says that less than 3% of infected people succumb to it and yet we somehow don’t take into account the 97% who recover and lead healthy lives. Focus on the positive, adhere to all norms, social distancing, wearing a mask, avoiding unnecessary travels will make the anxiety disappear.

In a first-ever of sorts, JFW is all set to narrate an empowering tale through its very own web series! “Chennaiku Pudhusu” JFW’s first-ever web series was launched yesterday by actress Simran Bagga and Television host and anchor Dhivyadharshini (DD). The series follows the journey of a young chef who moves to Chennai to pursue her dreams. Her personal and professional life is put to test as she learns to navigate through  her dreams in the new big city!

The teaser on release went viral and has created a lot of curiosity and engagement among netizens. “While most women are looking for ways to leave the kitchen, why did you dream of entering it” A question that is asked within few seconds into the teaser is something to ponder on. The food world is filled with talented women — generally, more often than not, they get passed over for awards and media coverage in favor of their male counterparts. One has to agree that even if they are discussed, it’s as if they are in a class entirely separate — or lower — than that of men.

JFW- from its very beginning has always underpinned strong- spirited, passionate women, and their journeys. “Chennaiku Pudhusu” is one such empowering tale of a young woman chef trying to make it into a field that is generally dominated by men. As she navigates through the fine-dining world and the new city she doesn’t just move through her culinary ranks but also understands life from a fresh perspective. A little confused, scared yet passionate and ready to take on the world, this Chef will remind you of your beautiful inner-child, one that aspires for finer, happier things in life. Travel with her incredible journey with a few laughs, giggles, joy, drama, triumphs and tribulations, and a whole lot of love for food

No Problem, Humiliate Their Family And Send Rape Threats To 6-Year-Olds! https://jfwonline.com/article/dhoni-and-jadhav-didnt-perform-no-problem-humiliate-their-family-and-send-rape-threats-to-6-year-olds/ The Chennai Super Kings, the team upholds so much of emotions, its unbelievable. Their fans and their defence and their love for CSK is simply beautiful to watch. Win or lose, the fans and CSK have been inseparable. But I think we do not live in that world anymore. Today we live in a world where our tolerance has hit a new low, we are irresponsible, easily frustrated and the love for CSK has now turned into a dangerous obsession.

A few days back CSK played the KKR in Dubai and lost the match. It is common these days to see trolls and memes surrounding players who did not perform well. But these lighthearted memes have turned into something vile and so vicious its scary. When the world Statistics stated India as the second most unsafest country for women, many rebelled but what is there to rebel when it’s true? The so-called “fans” of the team stooped so low that they decided to send across rape threats to the wives and daughters (little baby girls aged 5 and 6) of Kedar Jadhav and MS Dhoni right there on social media with absolutely no fear whatsoever.

They had the audacity to threaten to rape a little baby who has barely seen the world and they are roaming free because they know that they will not face any serious punishment. Here’s what came on:

In fact, Ziva and Meeraya received rape threats on their own social media pages handled by now absolutely anguished mothers. The pain these mothers must be going through after reading these comments is simply unfathomable. Going through the social media accounts of these men, they are very young, probably the future of this country (seems rather bright). If these men were as serious about crimes against their fellow citizens as much as they were about this game, this world would have been a better place to live in.

Most on social media condemned this act of sheer violence and hateful social media abuse and crime:

 

How tragic is this that a 6-year-old girl has to go through this. But she will enjoy her life and live it to her fullest despite these faceless trolls and their useless threats. Ziva and Meeraya, you young girls don’t let cowards dull your sparkle. Stay strong and stay braver!

Here’s Who It is! https://jfwonline.com/article/trending-a-surprise-new-contestant-to-enter-the-bigg-boss-house-heres-who-it-is/ The bigg Boss season 4 was launched october 4th and is now in full swing. A lot of speculated and fan made list of contestants were upfloat over the weeks before the big launch. Few that made it to the show were Shivani, Rio Raj, Ramya Pandiyan who were most guessed.

Now the big boss house holds sixteen housemate Aranthangi Nisha, Ramya Pandian, Shivani Narayanan, Gabriella Charlton, Anitha Sampath, Sanam Shetty, Rekha, Samyuktha Karthik, Rio Raj, Suresh Chakravarthy, Ajeedh, Aari, Somsekhar, Balaji Murugadoss, Velmurugan and Jithan Ramesh.

However among the most guess was VJ Archana. But however we did not get to see her on the day of the launch. Now media reports are doing rounds that the VJ turned TV Anchor is going to be making her surprise entrance soon. Though these are just speculations and it has not been confirmed yet it makes us wonder if that would mean there are going to seventeen contestants this time.

A Tamil news portal has reported that the late entry of Archana is owing to the fact that she is finshing off legal signs ups and process from the media channel she is associated with. The website also stated that she might be participating in Bigg Boss 4 very soon.

The day one started on a light note with all the housemates dancing, mingling and getting to know each other. Actress Rekha seems to be meticulous as she is seen moving around the house cleaning and also instructing others to do the same. A small group also got together to play a game at the lawn area. Nisha and Rekha got into a fun light hearted argument teasing each other. While most thought Nisha’s jokes would be taken offense by the teammates, all for now, seem to be a sport and are taking it lightheartedly.However the following days saw a rift between the news reader Anitha and Suresh Chakravarthy who have been gaining all the attention.

Things started heating up at the house in Day 2 itself with news reader Anitha spiking fights with her house mates specially Suresh Chajravathy. Apart from what is happening inside the house a new controversy is brewing outside among netizens. Actress Rekha entering the Bigg Boss season 4 has stirred conversations around her interview and reveal about the Controversial Kissing Scene With Kamal Haasan in Punnagi Mannan!

An old interview of actress Rekha has been going viral and the video caught hold of her saying that Kamal Haasan had kissed her without her consent at a mere age of 16 as they were shooting for a scene for the film Punnagai Mannan directed by K Balachander. The kissing scene turned out to be extremely famous when it released in the year 1986.

Rekha and Kamal played star-crossed lovers who jump off a waterfall because they will not be allowed to live together. While the scene itself became legendary, Rekha’s revelation has sparked outrage. In an interview with The News Minute, here’s all that Rekha recently stated:

“I’ve said this a hundred times. They shot the scene without me knowing about it. People ask me the same question and I’m fed up with answering it.”

However, Rekha believes that the addition of the kissing scene gave out a terrific result making the film a blockbuster hit. “The kiss didn’t look ugly or aggressive on-screen. There was a need for it, but I was a very young girl and I didn’t know about it. He (director K Balachander) said, ‘Kamal, close your eyes! You remember what I told you, right?’ and Kamal said that he did. Then we had to jump when he said 1, 2, 3… we kissed and then jumped. It was only when I watched it in theatres that I realised it had such a huge impact,” she said.

“They continued after that shot also, we had a location shift. Suresh Krissna and Vasanth were associate directors and I told them I wasn’t informed about the kiss and that I wouldn’t have agreed to it. But they told me to think of it as a big king kissing a small child. They told me it wouldn’t be passed by the Censor. I asked them what the Censor was!” she recalls.

Adding that these days an onscreen kiss isn’t a big deal, she said, “Whatever has happened has happened. It’s been many years now, but this question keeps coming up again and again.”

“The audience still doesn’t believe that it happened without my permission. Only he (Kamal Haasan) and the unit that was there can confirm what I’ve said. Balachander sir is no more. Only those who were there at the shoot know that the kiss happened without my consent,” said Rekha. When asked if the director or the actor apologised to her for the act, she said, “Why would they apologise, the film was a superhit! I got many films after that too, with Ramarajan and Ilaiyaraaja, like Namma Ooru Pattukaran. We were all so busy in those days, going from one schedule to another.”

She believes that Punnagai Mannan was the reason her career kick-started. “I don’t know about getting an apology but it is a fact that I wouldn’t have said yes to the kiss at that time. They just did the scene suddenly. It’s over now and I don’t want to revisit it,” said Rekha adding that she was more cautious after that.

Asked if she feels there should be a greater awareness in the film industry about such issues, she says, “I’ve been in the industry for a long time and I can’t say that I’ve had a bad experience as such. I’ve been here for the last 28 years. I believe in ‘give respect and take respect’. Nobody has ill-treated me, whether it’s an actor, director or technician. I haven’t had the kind of #MeToo experiences that people have talked about. This is work for me – I go and finish it, that’s it. I just focus on what I have to do.”

“I’ve been asked if I’ll wear a swimsuit, sleeveless or shorts and I’ve said no. I’ve told them that shorts won’t suit me and that I’ve done only homely roles, not sexy ones. I’d tell them this in advance. If we have to shoot a rain scene, we’ll wear a black skirt or a thick sari,” she says.

“I want to stay positive,” she says. “Kamal sir himself is 65 now. What’s the point of talking more about this now?”

A lot of her fans and netizens have been questioning about why she refrained from discussing this when a platform was given. With Rekha being very vocal about her life they are also wondering if this would ever come up in the ninety days or less that she might be staying at the big boss house.

Kajal was just another girl who wanted to make it big in the corporate world but happened to embrace the film opportunities that came her way.

Kajal has always kept her personal life privately, however, recently when Kajal was questioned about her love life and the one thing she looks for in a man, the actress stated, “Quite a lot of things, but most importantly he should be possessive, caring and spiritual.” Well we surely can’t wait for this bride-to-be ‘s big D-day!

A lot has been happening around the current web of drug-case which is entangled than ever before and a lot of facts are being missed out in the translation. Media is being blamed for playing judge and sensationalizing the news. While trying to separate the actual news from rumors and speculations have become a task, let us get our facts right by knowing the law. What are the laws in place when it comes to the usage of drugs? What are the rules?

Decoding the Drug Case: Here is What the Law Says 

Under the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances Act, 1985, it is illegal for a person to produce, manufacture, possess, sell, purchase, transport, warehouse, use, consume, import inter-State, export inter-State, import into India, export from India or transship any narcotic drug or psychotropic substance, except for medical or scientific purposes.

Narcotic drugs relate to cannabis, coco plant, and opium.

The NDPS is predominantly punitive. It contains provisions to regulate drugs and also the procedure for search, seizure, and arrest of a person in either public or private places.

A drug is any chemical substance associated with distinct physical and psychological effects. It alters a person’s normal body functions. It has the potential to be misused and may turn out to be harmful to the individual or society at large.

The Narcotics Control Bureau was set up with effect from March 17, 1986, to prevent illicit traffic in Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances.

The drugs that were added later are morphine, fentanyl, methadone, oxycodone, codeine, and hydrocodone.

The Act extends to the whole of India. The Narcotics Control Bureau is the chief law enforcement and intelligence agency of India which is responsible for fighting drug trafficking and abuse of illegal substances.

The Act prescribes punishment of 10 years rigorous imprisonment which can be extended up to 20 years and fine of 1 lakh which can go up to 2 lakhs.

Senior Advocate Mr. B. Kumar of Madras High Court who is an expert in the field says that the punishment is graded, depending on the quantity of the drugs or psychotropic substances involved and is categorized as small quantity, intermediate quantity, and commercial quantity.

He said that India is a signatory to the Convention on Psychotropic Substances, 1971 by which an international system for control on psychotropic substances was established.

The Narcotic Control Bureau (NCB) has so far arrested Sushant Singh Rajput’s girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty, her brother Showik and some suspected drug dealers for allegedly facilitating the actor’s drug habit. They have also questioned Bollywood actors Deepika Padukone, Shraddha Kapoor and Sara Ali Khan as a part of the investigation in a separate case.

Though Jothika is back in the big screen with her awe inspiring women-centric films from Jackpot, Raatchasi, 36 etc after being a part of the filmdom for a decade, this bubbly actor decided to take a break and focus on her family life for almost 7 years. In a cover story interview in the year 2015, the actress opened up on why she took a break.

“Someone or the other would message Suriya saying, “Jo’s film is playing on TV. She has done a fabulous job, why don’t you let her act?”

Though Jo had decided to take a break from cinema post her wedding, there was constant pressure and speculation about her comeback. “Most people were under the misconception that Suriya and his family did not want me to work post our wedding – that was not true. It was a conscious decision not act post my marriage as I had wanted to focus on my family life. Though I had made my intentions very clear to the media, Suriya was always being asked about my return to movies. Whenever one of my films is played on television, someone or the other would message Suriya saying, ‘Jo’s film is playing on TV. She has done a fabulous job, why don’t you let her act?’ Immediately Suriya would forward that message to me! He had faced a lot of heat from friends and fans, that too on my account.”

 

“I was very excited to be getting married to Suriya and missing out on the big films did not matter that much.”

Although it was her decision, it must have been a really hard one especially since she was doing the best movies of her career at that time. Also didn’t she suddenly feel she was missing her work post her marriage, we ask. Smiling, she says, “I was very excited to be getting married to Suriya that nothing else mattered. Infact I had to return the advances of two big Telugu films – one was a Selvaraghavan film (which Trisha signed on later and went on to become a big hit) and the other was a film with Nagarjuna. I wanted everything in my life to happen at the right time! I got married at the age of 27 and immediately had my first child, Diya, as we did not want to wait any longer. So I really did not have the time to miss cinema.” A few years later, the couple had their second child, Dev. “I could not even think about leaving my children alone and focus on my career again. Of course, I have done a few endorsements during my break, but apart from that I have spent every waking moment focusing on my family,” she says.

Tue, 06 Oct 2020 07:05:46 +0000 https://jfwonline.com/article/breast-cancer-awareness-month-decoding-the-myths-and-truths-of-battling-breast-cancer/ Breast Cancer Awareness Month: Decoding the Myths and Truths of Battling Breast Cancer! https://jfwonline.com/article/breast-cancer-awareness-month-decoding-the-myths-and-truths-of-battling-breast-cancer/ The month of October is dedicated to spreading Breast Cancer Awareness and raising funds towards the research and campaign. JFW brings to you some fresh insight on this grave subject.

To the layman, breast cancer is often associated with an unexpected painless lump that can be big or even as small as a pea. They could be painful, too, with the lump growing into a tumor and if malignant, the cells can grow into the surrounding tissues and metastasize to distant areas of the body. The cells can affect any part of the body, making it cancerous and spread to other areas, too.

Myths about Breast Cancer

Many of us are familiar with the cautionary text forwards asking us to steer clear of underwire bras because it “could cause breast cancer”. Turns out, the Breast Cancer Awareness month focuses on busting myths, too!

“These questions keep coming to us when I usually give awareness talks: Does wearing a metallic brassiere cause breast cancer? Does wearing a black dress increase my susceptibility to breast cancer? Does the cancer spread following biopsy? If someone in my family or my neighbourhood has cancer, can it spread to me like a contagious disease? It’s all false. It’s neither a contagious condition nor does it spread following biopsy. But these are only some of the few myths,” explains Dr Anusha.

“There’s also a belief that breast cancer is a disease only associated with women. However, there’s also a need to spread more awareness on the fact that it can also affect men, and although this happens rarely in comparison, it should be taken just as seriously as it could be aggressive if left untreated,” she adds.

Contrary to what one may imagine, a patient post-surgery is not incapacitated. “The patient is made to walk on the very same day of surgery and they are made to do shoulder mobility exercises on the day after surgery. They are advised to do some small activities at home and no one goes on a complete bed rest. Usually it’s only a day of hospitalization,” says Dr Anusha.

Driving home the point that breast cancer is curable, it should be emphasized that getting a screening is very important. “It is not only people with symptoms who need to approach a breast clinic for examination or screening. Ideally, it is advisable for any lady to go for breast screening,” she concludes.

Facts To Know:

After the diagnosis

When a person is diagnosed, the procedures they undergo depend on what cancer they have. Diagnosis is made usually after a clinical examination followed by biopsy. Dr Anusha Balakrishnan of Kauvery Hospital (Chennai), a Breast Surgeon who has done her Fellowship in Breast Oncology from TATA Memorial Hospital (Mumbai), tries to make the facts simple on what happens post-diagnosis.

Soon after the biopsy, the patient is asked to go for a metastatic workup. “This is to check if the cancer has localized or spread to any other part of the body. Based on that, we see if the patient will have to undergo curative procedures or palliative care,” she says.

Counseling is one of the vital steps in the management of breast cancer. They are counseled in a wholesome way and made aware of what type of breast cancer they have and how their cancer will be managed. In order to prevent the patient from getting into a mode of denial or from defaulting from the proposed treatment, the patient is motivated at every stage of their treatment and the relatives are also asked to remain positive and supportive of the patient.

The contestants were a mix of talent ranging from aspiring actors, singers, news reader, and more.

The day one started on a light note with all the housemates dancing, mingling and getting to know each other. Actress Rekha seems to be meticulous as she is seen moving around the house cleaning and also instructing others to do the same. A small group also got together to play a game at the lawn area. Nisha and Rekha got into a fun light hearted argument teasing each other. While most thought Nisha’s jokes would be taken offense by the teammates, all for now, seem to be a sport and are taking it lightheartedly.

Ramya Pandiyan became the first caption of this season and the housemates were separated into groups for different household work. The usual cooking team, vessel washing team, living room cleaning and bathroom cleaning team were put together.

As the day came to an end a task was announced. Each contestant was asked to pick two housemate they like and two that they didn’t. They were asked to stamp a heart for those they like and a heartbreak stamp into those they didn’t. During this task the most targeted was one among the youngest contestant the 19-year-old Shivani Narayanan. A lot of housemates felt that she was too reserved and did not mingle with others.

Shivani justified saying that it takes time for her to get used to people and to start talking. Sanam shetty targeted Shivani by bringing an issue that happened the previous evening while picking their spot in the bedroom. Shivani also stated that she felt that Sanam and Samyutktha sounded a bit rude. Two more contestants also stated that Sanam Shetty sounded very fake and pretentious.

Rio Raj, Sanam Shetty, Rekha, Bala, Anitha Sampath, Aari Arjuna, Velmurugan, Samyutktha, Jithan Ramesh, Ramya Pandian, Shivani Narayanan, Aranthanggi Nisha, Gabriella Charlton, Suresh Chakravarthy, Aajeedh Khalique and Somashekar are the contestants so far. Kamal announced that week one has no eviction but the housemates do not know about this.

His stories with every picture makes us feel so blessed and helpess at thr same time. It is truly our responsibility to uplift every citizen to their capability and that is exactly what the photographer tries to convey through every story. Here’s bringing you a brilliant story of a father who loves his daughter beyond anything amidst the poverty they are facing. Read below the heart touching story of MD. Kawsar Hossain who is a beggar by profession:

“Yesterday, I was able to buy a new dress for my daughter after two years. While I handed sixty pieces of five taka note to the seller, he yelled at me by asking if I am a beggar. My daughter held my hand and cried to leave the shop by saying that she did not want to buy any dress. I wept off her tears with one hand. Yes, I am a beggar. Ten years ago I had never thought in my nightmares that I have to live by begging from people. The night coach fell from the bridge and unbelievably I was alive. I was alive by becoming a disable. My youngest son often asks me where had I left my other hand. And my daughter Sumaiya feed me every day by saying she knows how difficult it is to do all work with one hand.

Now I will go for begging. I will place my daughter in a signal where she will wait for me. I will look at her from a distance while begging. I feel a shade of shame when she looks at me lend my one hand to others. However, she never leaves me alone because there are big cars and she thinks accident can happen again, these cars could run on me and I would die. Whenever I managed to get some money I return home by holding my daughter’s hand. We go to the bazaar on our way home and my daughter always carries the groceries bag. During rain, we love to get wet and talk about our dreams. On some days, I do not get any money and those days we return home silently. On those days I feel like killing myself but at night when my children fall asleep by holding me I feel that maybe being alive is not a bad thing.
