Published

Dr Madhumati On Duty actor Prajakta Dusane is excited about coming to Uttar Pradesh to shoot for a song along with a web show.

Last seen in Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah, Dusane adds, “It’s a good start to 2023 for me. I’m travelling to Amroha to a shoot video for singer Utkarsh Saxena opposite Mohd Sharia. Thereafter, later in January, the shoot for my next web series will start in Uttar Pradesh and an announcement for the same will be made soon. Currently, I am doing workshop for the same project.”

It has been seven years since she joined the industry and feels things are much better now. “After modelling, when I came in the industry, I only had films and TV in mind so took up a daily soap. Since the pandemic outbreak, mindsets have changed and avenues are aplenty. I surely want to do films but I’m loving doing music videos, appearances on TV as well as web series.”

Doing gigs and small roles on TV has worked for her. “Getting featured in The Kapil Sharma Show gave me a lot of recognition. Then, I travelled with them to Australia for live shows in Sydney and Melbourne. Now we are working on the next season. In TMKOC too it’s a good exposure for me. Since I am not required everyday so I am able to take up different projects this way I am not bound to just one show.”

During the pandemic phase she shot for two Punjabi song (Parchhawan and Two-Seater) and Hindi song (Dive In). “I have done four web shows Jalebi Bai, Patra Petika, Gaachi and two seasons of Tinku ki Suhaagraat. They were in bit spicy zone but still gave me immense space to perform and showcase my craft. As an artiste it was just a role for me and it is yielding good results.”

Dusane is excited about her item song with Ravi Teja. “We filmed it in Hyderabad in August last year and it brought along more offers from South. Besides, I have been signed for the web series Rohtak Sisters with Sameeksha Gaur.”

Never criticised Prince Harry, Meghan Markle: Nelson Mandela’s granddaughter | Web Series

Published

on

It was recently reported that Nelson Mandela’s granddaughter had accused Prince Harry and Meghan Markle of ‘using’ her grandfather’s legacy for profit in their Netflix documentary series Live to Lead, which she had allegedly called ‘deeply upsetting and tedious’. Now, the late Nelson Mandela’s oldest grandchild, writer and social activist Ndileka Mandela, has said in a new piece she wrote for a publication that ‘it was time to tell the truth’ about Prince Harry, Meghan and her grandfather.

It was earlier reported that Ndileka had said in an interview that she was unhappy with Harry and Meghan for name-dropping her grandfather in Netflix’s Live to Lead (2022), and allegedly said that people ‘have used his legacy because they know his name sells’. In her new piece, Ndileka broke her silence days after her statement made headlines. She has now said that the words were wrongly attributed to her. Ndileka also said she was ‘mortified to have seen how her words were twisted’ in such a way as to distort her genuine concerns about the commercial exploitation of her late grandfather’s legacy. Speaking about Meghan, she added that her grandfather’s name was misused to attack a woman of colour, who was ‘hounded out of the British royal family’.

She wrote in a piece for UK-based The Independent, “When people accused me recently of criticising Prince Harry and Meghan Markle for ‘profiteering’ from my grandfather’s name, I was shocked. Because it was false. I had never accused Harry and Meghan of doing this. Instead, I was misquoted, leading to global news coverage that weaponised my name – and the name of my grandfather, the late anti-apartheid activist and first president of South Africa, Nelson Mandela – to target a woman of colour.”

She also said that she ‘unequivocally supports’ Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s stand – and their use of her grandfather’s name. Ndileka further wrote in the aforementioned piece, “In reality, I greatly admire Prince Harry and Meghan Markle for their courageous commitment to defending those less privileged than them – vulnerable people, women, and people of colour. I welcomed the Nelson Mandela Foundation’s brilliant partnership with them on Live to Lead, and I celebrate the inspiration that Harry and Meghan take from my grandfather’s legacy for their social activism.”

Live to Lead, which premiered on Netflix last month, was inspired by Nelson Mandela, according to Prince Harry. In a 2015 speech at the Nelson Mandela Centre of Memory in Johannesburg, South Africa, Harry had said that he had met the leader before he died in 2013, a memory Harry said he has ‘treasured’ ever since. Harry and Meghan married in May 2018. Years later, in January 2020, they announced they will step down as ‘senior royals’ and work to become financially more independent, before moving to the US, where they now live with their children Archie and Lilibet.

Twinkle Khanna says wrinkles should be considered equivalent to medals | Bollywood

Published

on

Twinkle Khanna has shared a post about age and how it is only a ‘mathematical problem’. She said one must consider the wrinkles as a ‘general’s medals’, pinned to the skin as they remind one of the battles a person has survived, and even won. Many of her fans said they strongly agreed with her views. Also read: Twinkle Khanna shows the ‘mole’ above her lip, fans think it looks ‘bigger than her two nostrils combined’. See pic

Sharing a video of herself relishing a chocolate pastry, Twinkle wrote on Instagram, “Age is a mathematical problem. There are numbers that need to be tackled. It is not a division sum though, where we are reduced to a fraction of what we once were. It is a multiplier. At 40, you are still the pigtailed girl who once climbed trees and beat up all the boys. The young woman with a disdain for convention. The new mother with leaky breasts and fierce ambition.”

She added, “As you go along, you carry every version of you inside. You don’t have one heartbreak, one breakdown, one true love, one success; you have a mountain of them. And those wrinkly-crinkly lines? How about we consider them the equivalent of a general’s medals, pinned to our skin, a reminder of all the battles we have survived, and the ones we have won. Agree? Disagree?”

Most of her fans said they strongly agreed with her caption. A fan wrote in the comments section, “Totally!!! Accept it and age gracefully.” Another wrote, “Yes darling agree totally getting better smarter wiser, forget my creeky bones, or my weight issues, am still the best at my age & yes alwaz thanking God!” One more fan wrote, “You are right it’s a mathematical problem! When the age number comes in mind then you start thinking, start bothering and assuming you are getting old. I believe we should rather eat healthy, exercise and stay young.”

Twinkle is married to actor Akshay Kumar and the two have a son, Aarav, 20, and a daughter, Nitara, 10. She is currently pursuing Masters in Fiction Writing at the prestigious Goldsmiths, University of London. She is an actor-turned-writer and also produces films. She also founded a health and wellness website, Tweak India.
