Sonam posted a couple of pictures on instagram earlier on Wednesday, and then a video of the same sequence.

Of the two pictures she posted, the first is a close-up, but it is the second that catches your attention. It is a long shot taken on a street. She rests against a convertible dressed in a beige overcoat and grey suit. A hand holds a huge umbrella above her.

“Sorry RiRi, no one can stand under my umbrella… Need to maintain safe distance!” she wrote as caption.

With another couple of pictures, in the same dress, she earlier wrote: “I love throwing on an oversized jacket and painting the town red… you can definitely coat me on that!”

Sonam has started to shoot for “Blind” in Glasgow, Scotland. The film will have a start to finish schedule. The action thriller is directed by Shome Makhija, and revolves around a blind police officer who is in search of a serial killer.

Subuhii Joshi: I am lazy when it comes to dressing up

Mumbai– Actor Subuhii Joshi, who became popular playing Poonam Maheshwari in the show Yeh Un Dino Ki Baat Hai, says fashion for her is always about being comfortable. However, she reveals when it comes to dressing up she feels lazy.

“Fashion for me is being comfortable in whatever clothes I am wearing, and whatever I can carry with confidence. My comfort clothes would be wearing a long loose oversized T-shirt with shorts and flip flops. I am not someone who wants to dress up all the time. I am very lazy when it comes to dressing up,” Subuhii tells IANS.

As an actor, being in the public eye can make fashion quite a task, she says.

“Fashion trends change every year and every season and, of course, it is exhausting because as an actor you have to take care of a lot of things. We need to think even before repeating our clothes so it is exhausting

However, she has no qualms in picking up a role with a contrasting fashion choice. “I think I am okay picking up a character whose fashion sense is completely opposite to my look because I am okay carrying any type of clothes. When it comes to acting, we have to do a lot of things where we are going out of our comfort zone. In daily life, I would not do that but on screen it’s fine,” she says.

Neha Bhasin: What’s the use of being an artiste if I don’t have a distinct voice?

Mumbai– Singer Neha Bhasin believes that artistes should have a distinct voice and they should lead the way instead of being ‘people pleasers’ and trends. Rather, a singer should set a trend said Neha, who recently released the music video Tu ki jaane.

The song and its video try tracing an unusual bond between a broken heart and the bare body.

“I think in a patriarchal society, since childhood we are told to dress in a certain manner and we are told that we should feel conscious of our body. But why should I feel ashamed of my body, why should I not celebrate my womanhood? I have been a major victim of cyber-bullying like all those women who are unabashed and self-assured about themselves,” she told IANS.

The singer added: “I know that I do not have the numbers when it comes to followers on social media that many of my contemporaries have because I do not want to be a pleaser. You know I am an artiste, and being an artiste if I do not have a distinct voice, if I am not leading the way, how am I utilising the power of my voice? When I am saying voice, I am not just talking about my ability to sing, but having an opinion on things that matter to us, to the society.”
