Ananya Panday says it hurts her when trolls target family

Mumbai– Bollywood actress Ananya Pandey said that even though she takes social media trolls with a pinch of salt (and in fact considers them to be her fans too), it really hurts her when her family gets trolled.

Panday was most recently trolled for her comments on the Korean boy band, BTS. In 2019, she launched the ‘Be Positive’ initiative against social media bullying.

Appearing in the chat show ‘Pinch Season 2’ by Arbaaz Khan, Panday said, “If people troll me, I take it in a positive way, but it upsets me when they start saying things about my mom, dad and even my little sister. I don’t hate my haters; in fact, I feel they are my biggest fans because they are constantly checking on me.”

Panday, who’ll be seen next in the action film ‘Khaali Peeli’ with Ishaan Khatter, said, “I have always felt that the answer to hate should be love. I started ‘So Positive’ so that people who have no one to talk to, can reach out to someone. Always talk to someone you trust. It can be your teacher, parents, or the cyber police.”

Palak Mucchal says Salman recommended her for ‘Laapata’ number

New Delhi– Young singer Palak Mucchal is known for giving some chartbusting numbers in Bollywood films. Her latest songs ‘Rammo Rammo’ from ‘Bhuj: The Pride Of India’ and ‘Kabhi Tumhe’ from ‘Shershaah’ have garnered a lot of attention.

Palak has achieved recognition as a singer at a very young age. In an exclusive conversation with IANS, Palak said: “I do believe I’m living my dream. Nobody in my family sings. Singing came to me as God’s gift. I never thought that I would be able to sing so many songs in such a short span of time, get to work with such amazing people, receive so much love from my fans and support and win so many awards. It’s truly been a dreamy journey.”

Palak debuted with ‘Ek Tha Tiger’ track ‘Laapata’ which was well-appreciated by the audience. “I debuted with ‘Laapata’. Salman sir had recommended my name for it. To have your first song in a Yash Raj film, that too for Salman Khan sir, I think I couldn’t have asked for anything more.”

She continued sharing the milestones in her journey, “Then I got ‘Aashiqui 2’ which kind of broke all the records and served as a milestone in all of Indian music history. Then I got ‘Prem Ratan Dhan Paayo’, I thought nothing can be bigger than that. ‘Kaun Tujhe’ and so many other songs followed. It just kept getting better.”

Tisca Chopra misses her daughter while shooting outdoors

New Delhi– Actress Tisca Chopra has her hands full with interesting projects in the pipeline.

From the feature film ‘Jug Jug Jiyo’ and web series ‘Fear’, to ‘Tisca’s Table’ and ‘Tete-a-Tete with Tisca’, she is soon about to wear the director’s hat too.

Amid all this, the actress tries to be a hands-on mother with her teenage daughter Tara.

Sharing how she maintains the balance during shoots, Tisca shared in an exclusive conversation with IANS, “I would like to think that I am a hands-on mother, but for the past 15 to 20 days, I haven’t been able to do so because I am shooting away from Mumbai. Then I am headed for another project for a month due to which I am going to be away from home.”

The actress says the digital world comes to her rescue for keeping in touch with her daughter during outdoor shoots.

“Long live FaceTime and video conferencing. That’s the way I can keep in touch with my child. We have a routine so we talk every morning… I also tuck her in with a good night over the phone. Fortunately, my husband is back home with her. So I’m not stressed about that,” she says.

Tisca, 49, shares that although technology comes as a saviour for the mother, she misses being away from her daughter for days.

“I miss snuggling with her at night, I miss our story times, her mad energy and crazy sense of humour. She is an absolutely wonderful child who’s crazy and funny and I miss all of that,” Tisca says.

Raashii Khanna who has been shooting for filmmakers Raj and DK’s series alongside Shahid Kapoor, has now started the shoot of her series ‘Rudra’ alongside actor Ajay Devgn.

The actress is scheduled to fly to Chennai to start shooting for her recently announced untitled Tamil film alongside Dhanush.

Not stopping at this, Raashii also has ‘Tughlaq Durbar’, ‘Aranmanai 3’ and ‘Bhramam’.

The actress believes this to be a result of her hard work and doesn’t want to complain about the hectic schedule.

Raashii tells IANS: “I’ve worked very hard to get to where I am in my career and that has resulted in interesting opportunities in the entertainment industries in the North and the South. It’s not very easy to be shuttling cities every three to four days but I am not complaining because I have always wanted to work with brilliant minds and that passion for my craft has been keeping me on my toes.”

Raashii will also be seen alongside actor Naga Chaitanya in ‘Thank You’. (IANS)
