“It all started with penning down a few thoughts and that just soon became an interesting idea. Soon enough, it started looking like a concept I would like to develop. It’s a comedy, my favourite genre. The premise is hilarious,” Richa said.

“The fact that all our lives have come to a screeching halt has made me contemplate the fragility of human existence. I want to write something that focuses on why people should prioritize what’s necessary.

In a video she has shared on Instagram, Shilpa performs Surya Namaskar. “Being indoors for days on end can lead to the body stiffening up. One of the best ways to give your body the much-needed flexibility and toning, is through a few rounds of Surya Namaskaras,” she wrote.

Elaborating on the asana, the actress added: “It’s a complete workout. To make it even more beneficial, I added a few variations. You can try it out too (if your body has no injuries and permits). It helps increase shoulder-&-core strength while improving back flexibility, stamina, and endurance. This one’s also a high calorie-burning variation, so performing about 8 to 16 repetitions every alternate day will also help reduce fat and increase metabolism too.”

She had this message for her fans: “Today, I’m grateful for the ability to share whatever knowledge I have with millions of people around the globe. Please do take care of your health and your families too. Stay indoors, stay safe.”

Hrithik Roshan’s ‘Super 30’ awaits censor clearance for China release

New Delhi– Hrithik Roshan’s 2019 hit “Super 30” is lined for release in China once the COVID-19 pandemic blows over and normalcy returns.

Reliance Entertainment Group CEO Shibashish Sarkar said that they were in the midst of the censorship process before the lockdown in China, and are looking forward to taking the movie to the foreign market once they get a go-ahead signal.

Asked if “Super 30” will be the first Bollywood film to get a release in China after the health crisis — as being speculated widely by a section of the Indian media — Shibashish told IANS: “I don’t think that is the fact.”

“The fact is that we have applied for the censor, and we were in the midst of the censorship process. There are three stages and we have completed the first stage. We were in the midst of the process when the lockdown happened in China,” he added.

Sarkar continued: “I assume that there will be many other films in the pipeline, maybe many Indian films in the pipeline as well, which I am not sure about. But I am pretty sure that our film was in the censorship process, and once the censor clears it, we will gear up to release our film in China. But whether it is our film which will be the first (to release in China) or some other film, I don’t have any idea.”

“Super 30” is based on the life of Anand Kumar, who runs the Super 30programme for IIT-JEE aspirants from poor families. Produced by Reliance Entertainment and Phantom Films, and directed by Vikas Bahl, the film also stars Mrunal Thakur, Amit Sadh and Nandish Sandhu in pivotal roles.
