Adah Sharma promotes musical talent of a commoner

Mumbai– Actress Adah Sharma is using her social media presence to help out a musician who has been struggling to make a living on the empty streets during lockdown.

Adah, who has almost 5 million followers on Instagram, posted a video on the video-sharing platform that captures a melodious tune played by a flute player.

“Meet Basuriwaale bhaiya! Contact him to purchase a flute and learn. (Mumbai). He has been playing through lockdown. Walking through empty streets. With all his audience sitting at home, but he still played with full feel. I thought he deserved to be heard by the millions on my social media,” she captioned the video.

She has also up her social media platform to promote other talented people.

“If you have a skill and want to showcase it you can come Collab with me and use my Instagram ! #AdahSharmaXAamAadmi #AdahFindsTalent #AdahXOthersTalents,” she wrote.

“You will be inflicted with me playing the flute in videos soon,” she concluded.

Nora Fatehi: I love getting into the groove of any character

Mumbai– Actress Nora Fatehi believes in giving her all while working on songs and film projects. While doing so, something funny happened recently.

Nora had to wear separate footwear with the same outfit in her song, “Naach meri rani” because, as she explained, the number is “a very upbeat and groovy song”.

“I love getting into the groove of any character. The moves required strong foot work and powerful leg movements. When we shot for it the first day, I gave it my all. However, funnily enough, the heels of my shoes ripped off and the team had to arrange for another pair as we were yet to complete the shoot,” she added.

The poster of “Naach meri rani”, featuring Nora was launched recently. She flaunts icy purple tresses with a silver sequined attire in the poster.

Ananya made her debut with “Student Of The Year 2” in 2019, and went on to star in “Pati Patni Aur Woh” and “Khaali Peeli”.

Talking about her journey as an actor so far, Ananya shared: “Every experience has been just so enriching and individually, a journey of a lifetime. I truly enjoy learning and I want to be a student for life. I want to experiment and grow with everything that I do and I definitely don’t want to get stuck in a zone or stay stagnant.”

“Starting from Shreya (her character in ‘Student Of The Year 2’) being a force to reckon with and up to Pooja (‘Khaali Peeli’), who as a character is completely out of my comfort zone, all characters that I have had the chance to play have been extremely different from each other yet, and each has acted as a catalyst in broadening my horizon,” she added.

The actress has two projects in the pipeline — Shakun Batra’s untitled film co-starring Deepika Padukone and Siddhant Chaturvedi, and “Fighter” alongside Vijay Deverakonda.

“Taking all those learnings forward, I’m so excited for Shakun’s film and Puri Jagannath sir’s film, both because yet again, these projects are so different from each other and anything I’ve done before and would bring out a different side of me, different characters and bring different experiences”, she said.
