Ishita Dutta poses for 2021 quarantine calendar shoot
Mumbai– Actress Ishita Dutta is very excited about her recent quarantine calendar shoot, in which she poses in heels on a Yoga mat and flaunts a fit avatar.
Lensman Tanmay Mainkar captured the shot, and Ishita said about the experience: “It was really great working with Tanmay and his entire time. In fact I remember I met him last year on the sets of my show and we were planning something, and somehow it did not work out. So this year when he messaged me and we spoke, I was pretty excited. Even if we talk about concepts, it’s super cool and interesting. Also, Tanmay really knows what he wants and I think even during the shoot I was telling him it is great to work with someone who has so much clarity. It helps the actor a lot. It was great team work.”
The admiration is mutual. “She is a very experimental person who was very interested in trying some different hair and make-up, and that made work more fun and creative,” Tanmay said about Ishita.

Maheep Kapoor: Biggest pressure for Bollywood wife is being judged
Mumbai– Maheep Kapoor, wife of actor Sanjay Kapoor, is currently seen on the web show, Fabulous Lives Of Bollywood Wives. She says the biggest pressure of being a Bollywood wife is being judged.
Talking about the pressures of being a Bollywood wife, Maheep told IANS: “All I can say is everyone is human. Everyone has feelings and everyone has emotions. There are different pressures. I think the biggest pressure for a Bollywood wife and being in the public eye is being judged.
She added: “Right from the beginning, social media is judging them, taking pictures. That is difficult. Everyone has pressure — good, bad or ugly. Everyone has tensions at home. Everyone has their own stories.”

Vir Das opens up on why his new special was ‘tough’
New Delhi– Stand-up star Vir Das has dropped a new comedy special, Outside In. He says he did not plan to make this into a show and that getting it to a point where it felt like he wanted to put it out was tough for him.
The comedy special is created out of 30 virtual shows he did during lockdown and features audience joining in from all over the world. The special captures the mundane aspect of being stuck at home, besides heartwarming stories about everything that lockdown put us through.
The show primarily unfolds through conversations Vir Das has with the audience.
Working from home, he told IANS, “wasn’t difficult at all”, adding: “I had such minimal equipment so it was quite easy to shoot. I put a camera on a stack of books and started to shoot. So, in that sense it was not very difficult at all because the entire show was conversation with people across the world, that was a little bit tough because you ended up with having a lot of footage at the end of it.”
He added: “Editing was definitely a little hard. I didn’t even plan to put out the special. There were zero plans to make this into a show. I think just getting it to the point where it felt like I wanted to put it out that was tough.”
He had earlier shared that the show is dedicated to each one of us who has survived this year. It will premiere on Netflix on December 16. (IANS)
