Krishna took to the comments section and wrote, “Yes Ma’am”, and the netizens are having a field day. One user wrote, “Ye pakka Tiger bhai hain, Krishna ki ID se (This surely is Tiger Shroff operating Krishna’s ID to comment on the picture)”

That to me is the biggest validation for my work and my skill set as an artiste. My character in ‘Govinda Naam Mera’ is me trying to do something disruptive again, trying to change it up again with each film and hopefully wowing people with my performance.”

She added: “I hate to be put into a mould and I constantly look to challenge the status quo and do something subversive. I’m delighted that audiences are loving my character in the trailer. It’s just a tease of what to expect in the film. She is a firecracker of a woman, she is grey and I love her because she is just hilariously entertaining.”

Ayushmann Khurrana joins global icon David Beckham for raising child rights awareness

Mumbai– Ayushmann Khurrana has joined hands with global icons like David Beckham, Robert Lewandowski, Sergio Ramos, Andriy Shevchenko and Cafu to raise awareness about child rights across the world.

“We must all make sure that discrimination based on gender becomes a thing of the past and that every girl is treated with the same value and worth by her family and community as any boy. We can begin by disrupting gender stereotypes in our own lives. Small changes add up over time to make things better,” he said.

“We must ensure that we look at boys and girls in the same light and provide equal access to everything for the girls. Today, our girls are making our country proud in every field, they are shattering glass ceilings. So, let’s provide them with everything that they need to excel and in turn, change the narrative.”

He added futher: “The prevalence of violence against children is widely recognised. We need to raise awareness about this problem by bringing the issue of violence against children into the open.”

“As the face of UNICEF’s global campaign, EVAC – ending violence against children – I have been working for the past two years to raise awareness on child rights. It is amazing to see these huge global icons join this initiative to bring to light how gender discrimination must be put an end to have a better society across countries,” he concluded.

On the work front, Ayushmann has impressed everyone with his action avatar in the trailer of his upcoming thriller ‘An Action Hero’. It releases on December 2.

Ridhiema Tiwari to play antagonist in ‘Raazz Mahal’

Mumbai– ‘Sasural Genda Phool’ actress Ridhiema Tiwari talks about playing an antagonist in the fantasy drama ‘Raazz Mahal’ featuring Himanshu Soni and Neha Harsora in the lead roles.

Talking about her role, she said: “When the script was first narrated to me, I was thrilled because this was the first opportunity to explore such a devious and complex character. Powerful roles come naturally to me. It’s definitely my comfort zone yet the duality of the character around other characters makes this very challenging and I love challenges. I was both excited and curious to explore my journey as Chandralekha and the plot caught my attention. I just couldn’t resist saying yes.”

The 38-year-old is known for her roles in ‘Do Dil Ek Jaan’, ‘Sasural Genda Phool’, and many more. She is also known for her Bollywood Debut in the 2017 film ‘Begum Jaan’.

The actress says that she has played several characters but for her, this is far more challenging and tough.

“I’ve played many roles in my career, but by far this is the most interesting and challenging of them all. Chandralekha as Dakini is dark, devious, deadly cruel, and vicious on screen. She follows her gut and doesn’t bow down in front of anyone. Getting into the skin of the character was a purely intuitive process as I explored more about Dakini,” she concluded.

Ira Sone: The web can be overwhelming, especially when you do a bold scene

Mumbai– Actress Ira Sone, who began her acting career in 2007 with the popular show ‘Kumkum: Ek Pyara Sa Bandhan’, shares her experience of doing web shows and why she is not so keen to do bold scenes.

She says: “The experience was underwhelming because there is a thin line between bold scenes and the content is absolutely bold; this thin line makes a huge difference, and in my case, the bold scene backfired because it took over the story and the content.”

“The content was really good, but the character got overshadowed because of the number of scenes that were in the show. The web can be tricky and overwhelming, especially when you do a bold scene.”

The actress, who has been part of ‘Woh Rehne Wali Mehlon Ki’, ‘Raja Ki Aayegi Baraat’, ‘Saat Phere: Saloni Ka Safar’, ‘Saath Nibhaana Saathiya’, and many more says that many of the TV actors are doing OTT projects but her experience is not that great.

As she says: “I believe the web is the bridge between TV and movies, and I see a lot of TV actors doing some quality work; however, I have had a very underwhelming experience.”

She adds: “Television has a different audience that certainly can’t accept their bahus playing anything beyond a bahu. The format of TV and web scripts is very different, and I’m hopeful that in time we can see things changing.”
