COVID-19: Richa Chadha pitches in to provide meals for needy
Mumbai– The nationwide lockdown due to the coronavirus pandemic has been harsh on many, and actress Richa Chadha is doing her bit. She has taken to donating food to a Gurudwara here, and has urged others to follow suit.
The actress came to know that the Gurudwara had been providing meals to the needy. Then she decided to offer help.
“It’s the time when our humanity is being tested and I believe in the goodness in people. People have really come together. This pandemic is bringing out the worst and best in humans. While some are making racist, communal comments, civil society is going out of its way to care of animals, along with humans. It’s not about the big gestures or who donated how many crores (of money). I am only talking about this, because I urge others to do the same, take baby steps,” said Richa.
When she contacted the people at the Gurudwara, they said they will accept ration and not money.
“So I went with the amount of groceries I could procure nearby, which was little, like 10-20 kgs. Now I have learnt that they need as much as 250 kgs every single day, so I am figuring out a wholesale place that can get me food grains and pulses in that large quantity,” she said.

Abhishek Bachchan recalls shooting for ‘Guru’ in Madurai
Chennai– It was Flashback Friday for actor Abhishek Bachchan as he went down memory lane and reminisced shooting for the “Tere bina” song from the movie “Guru”, which is directed by Mani Ratnam.
“On the sets of Guru in October 2006 in Madurai. Mani had decided to shoot the song ‘Tere Bina’ ( my all time favourite) much after we had finished principle photography. If you look closely during the song I had long hair, which I had grown for my film ‘Jhoom Barabar Jhoom’.
“Since this shoot happened in the middle of JBJ’s shoot (Shaad, the director of JBJ can never say no to Mani as he used to be Mani’s assistant and considers him to be like family, hence adjusted his dates to enable this shoot) I just shaved my beard but obviously couldn’t cut my hair. They used to pin up my hair during this shoot to look shorter and match the continuity look of Gurukant Desai,” Abhishek wrote on Instagram along with a BTS picture from the sets.
He also recalled how one of his friends, who paid visit on the sets, was forcefully made to shoot for some sequence.
“A fun fact. Also seen in this photo is one of my best friends Gaurav. Babu, as I fondly call him had come to visit me and Aishwarya during the shoot as he stays in Chennai.
