Geetika Vidya: I was told 25 is too old an age to become an actress
Mumbai– Geetika Vidya who impressed the audience and critics alike with her performance in films like “Soni” and “Thappad”, says she is content with the wisdom that she has gained by living life on her own terms, and has never been bogged down by what others advised.
Starting her career in theatre, the Delhi girl was told several discouraging and demotivating things in her days as a budding film actor.
“When I was 21-22 years old, I was told if you want to become an actress go to Mumbai now, beyond the age of 25 you will be too old. I was told if you want to get married do it now beyond the age of 25 you will be too old. I am glad I had the wisdom to be content in my thought that I am not meant to entertain those who want to see females only below 25 years old, as their heroines in real life and on reel. With this award in my hand, I want to wish resilience for directors and actors combating stereotypes,” she said, after winning the Critics’ Choice Film Awards for her role as a police officer in “Soni”, which deals with crimes against women in the city.

Vir Das excited to be back in fiction space with a strange character
Mumbai– Stand-up comedian and actor Vir Das, who is looking forward to his upcoming web series “Hasmukh”, says performing in front of a live audience is extremely different from being in a fictional film or series.
In the show, he will be seen as Hasmukh, who works hard to bring a smile to everyone’s face.
“Performing in front of a live audience is extremely different from being in a fictional film or series. I’m back on screen playing a strange and unusual character, so I’m excited,” Vir said.
The trailer of the show was released on Friday. The series follows the journey of a young man from Saharanpur who wants to be the greatest comedian in the world. While he is a great writer, he lacks comic timing. It is a story of untamed ambition.
Talking about the role of Hasmukh, he said: “He’s super awkward, soft spoken and always mild, until he murders or gets on stage. Stand-up comedians will relate to Hasmukh’s journey — well, most of it at least. We’re all looking for innovative ways to make people laugh, but this guy takes it to the next level. The trailer should give you a sneak peek into what I’m talking about, but just wait and watch!”
Also featuring Ranvir Shorey, Manoj Pahwa, Ravi Kishan, Amrita Bagchi, Suhail Nayyar, Inaamulhaq and Raza Murad, “Hasmukh” is directed by Nikhil Gonsalves and will release on April 17.
