Rajshree Thakur seeks inspiration from veteran actress Neena Gupta for her upcoming role as Preeti Jindal in Shaadi Mubarak

Star Plus is all set to launch a new show Shaadi Mubarak starring Manav Gohil (KT) & Rajshree Thakur (Preeti Jindal) in lead roles. The show promises a journey of self-revelation of two different individuals who come together to form a unique bond. Rajshree as Preeti Jindal showcases traits of a woman with substance and her seeking inspiration from Neena Gupta sets a perfect example for her on-screen character.

Commenting on the same Rajshree Thakur, who is gearing up to make a comeback, says Neena ji is an actor I really admire. When I was approached to essay the role of Preeti, in Shaadi Mubarak, I drew inspiration from her performance in the movie Badhai Ho. The way she brought to life the nuances of a middle-aged mother was simply amazing. The nuances, vulnerabilities, strengths all these were captured and performed so well. It made the character so real and believable. I hope viewers will connect with the varied emotions seen in the show and continue to shower me with their love as I embark on this new journey as Preeti Jindal.

Produced by Shashi Sumeet Productions, the show will also feature popular television actors such as Neelu Vaghela, Nisha Rawal, Manu Malik, Dolly Minhas, Akansha Sareen, Gaurav Sharma in pivotal roles.

Shaadi Mubarak to hit television screens from 24th August at 7:30pm only on Star Plus


Ever since they did Bigg Boss 13 last year, the chemistry between Sidharth Shukla and Shenaaz Gill has been a favourite with masses. They look like the perfect couple, and producer Kaushal Joshi, who brought them together for the first time after Bigg Boss, in the single Bhula Dunga, vouches for it.

Kaushal Joshi, is an entrepreneur turned producer, who used to earlier handle some of the biggest names in showbiz like Bharti Singh, Hina Khan, Krushna Abhishek, Erica Fernandes and Shenaaz Gill. He is quick to spot good talent and has earned the goodwill in establishing an upcoming artist as a brand. After producing the single Bhula Dunga with SidNaaz, Kaushal brings the duo back again!

Sidharth Shukla and Shenaaz Gill will be seen in an ad campaign together. The ad campaign revolves around their crackling chemistry and funny banter (nokjhok) and will also see them dancing together. Bhula Dunga got around 80 million views and Kaushal is hoping the ad will establish these two as promising new faces in the ad world.

He said, “I have handled so many artists and worked in the industry for many years. The last few years have given me the courage to move ahead and get involved with production – singles and ad campaigns. I plan to also produce shows and films in the future. Sidharth Shukla and Shenaaz Gill are wonderful onscreen and people love to watch them together. So, I felt bringing them back together for this ad campaign will only further enhance the brand and establish them as fresh new faces in the ad world. I am sure that this ad campaign will find a connect with masses.”

He also added, “I feel ideas rule the world. Slowly and steadily, one can be part of many creative things in showbiz. I really enjoy working with actors and with production, I hope to make it even bigger.”

The current pandemic situation has forced us to be homebound. And we all are craving for a break. A break from the monotonous life that we were forced to be into, a break from the closed walls of our homes, a break from the same daily news. And actor Arjun Bijlani is one of the lucky few who was able to take this much-needed break with his family.

The “Miley Jab Hun Tum” actor is currently vacationing in Goa along with his wife Neha Swami and son Ayaan. He has even treated his social media followers with some beautiful photographs with the serene beaches as the background. What’s more, he even wished his friends and followers on friendship day in a video.

Arjun’s pics are definitely giving us some vacation goals especially during these times when life has reached a standstill. But thanks to him for taking us on a visual tour through his pics.

Check out his pics for that much-needed break feels. Arjun has been part of shows like “Left Right Left”, “Naagin”, “Kavach”, “Pardes Mein Hai Mera Dil” and “Ishq Mein Marjawan”. He was last seen in the web series “State of Siege: 26/11” which got him a lot of accolades.


India is a country of festivals and the festive season is about, to begin with, Raksha Bandhan. But because of the Coronavirus pandemic and the various precautionary measures and state-wise regulations, it’s a little difficult to travel this year for Rakhi. But as they say, love knows no distance, here are some celebrities sharing their Raksha Bandhan plans for this year.

Shashank Vyas: My sister is married and lives in Jodhpur, so since the past 11 years I have been getting a Rakhi by post. She is very simple, in fact, I tell her that you can’t be like this in today’s world. I remember how we used to fight when we were kids and now I see her playing the role of a mother, daughter-in-law, and wife. And she is managing all that so beautifully. 

Pranitaa Pandit: I was really expecting my brother to be with me this year for Rakhi considering I am pregnant. It was supposed to be a good celebration time, but I think it will just be a video call. My sister, who lives in Delhi, will go and tie Rakhi on my behalf. The first thing that comes in my mind about my brother is that he gives the best advice. He always tells me the truth and his honest opinion, he doesn’t try to comfort me with any unrealistic expectations about life or any relationship or situation. I know when I need a reality check I need to go to him.

Meera Deosthale: My brother has been in Canada for the past three years. So every year on Rakhi we send each other gifts. While I send Rakhi and sweets from here, he sends a lot of presents for me. He is younger to me so whenever our mom was not there I would act like his mom. But on some days we fought like cats and dogs. After I shifted to Mumbai, our equation matured, if he visited me here, and I got late from my shoots he will always be up waiting for me. He will ask me about my day and he used to make amazing Maggi for me. He was supposed to be home for Rakhi but then this pandemic happened and now I guess we have to wait for another year.

Srman Jain: For the first time in life it will be a virtual Raksha Bandhan for me. Being a Punjabi, Rakhi has always been special for us because you and your sister are the centre of attraction on that day. It’s a great feeling. I don’t think I will be missing anything because we can always do a video call and I believe you need to have those beautiful emotions and sentiments, and that’s there for me. From the industry, Sargun Mehta and Sanaya Irani tie Rakhi to me. Last year, me and Sargun, both of us were in UK shooting for her Punjabi film so she tied the Rakhi to me on the set. But this year she is in Punjab and even Sanaya has gone to meet her brother, so I am going to miss both of them. This year I will be alone and I will really miss everyone. 


Chirag Jani seems to be a favourite with the makers of Vignaharta Ganesh. The actor, who played the role of Sindhura in August 2017, in the same TV show, will soon reenter the show. This time, Chirag will essay the role of Surapadma, an asura, who is defeated by Kartikeya (Murugan) in a battle and then he becomes his vehicle in the form of a peacock.

Ask Chirag, why he has agreed to reenter the show and play another role, he said, “The audiences wanted to see me again and the production house likes my work. It is an interesting role, and if I get an opportunity to play different roles in the same show, why not? It just shows my versatility. It will be challenging to enact this role as I will fight the battle with Kartikeya.”

The interesting part is; Chirag will also perform the Shiv Tandav Nrutiya in the show. He said, “Before going to the battlefield, Surapadman prays to Lord Mahadev like Raavan and performs the Tandav dance and Bhasma aarti to please him. This was extremely challenging and I hope the viewers enjoy this scene.”

In addition to TV shows, Chirag also does Telugu, Kannada, Gujarati and Malayalam films and recently bagged the best actor in a villain role for the Tamil film Kaappaan (2019).


The entertainment industry was closed for over three months because of the nationwide lockdown, post the Coronavirus outbreak. The shootings have now begun but keeping in mind the guidelines issued by the government.

Though the actors, who have resumed shoots, accept that there is a scare because of the outbreak, they have appreciated the safety measures taken by their respective production houses. Let’s see what they have to say:

Rupali Ganguly in “Anupamaa”: The first day when we reached on the set, it was a little scary because we had to remove the mask. But the unit is taking such good care of us, everybody is in the mask and everybody realises that actors are not wearing masks. The way Rajan Shahi has taken care of all the safety measures, like santisation happening every three hours, we are given kadha, temperature checks happening, our body is sanitised before we come on the set. He has taken utmost care of us and everyone in the unit realises that we need to take care of each other.

Vijayendra Kumeria in “Naagin: Bhagya Ka Zehreela Khel”: To be honest I was a little scared in the beginning but seeing the precautionary measures on the set, I felt much better and relaxed. The fear is always going to be there at the back of our mind but we have to fulfil our commitments too. Taking safety precautions and following the guidelines while shooting is a difficult task and slows down work, but we are coping up. I am taking care of everything in regards to my safety rest is in God’s hands.

Sudhanshu Pandey in “Anupamaa”: Rajan Shahi and his team at Director’s Kut Productions are taking full precautions on the set. Social-distancing is maintained. Sanitizers are available at the entrance and even on the set. They are checking the temperature of everyone entering the set.

Avinash Mukherjee in “Shakti – Astitva Ke Ehsaas Ki”: The production house of “Shakti – Astitva Ke Ehsaas Ki” has maintained utmost cleanliness. There are 4-5 people walking with PPE kits, sanitisers and sprays, they were sanitising the entire sets, including our rooms and even the garden. Once we entered, our temperature was checked and then there were hands-free sanitisers. All the other crew members had their mask, gloves and eyeglasses and face shield on the entire time. Even we had to put them on during the rehearsals, it was only between action and cut that we removed our masks. And of course, everyone was maintaining social-distancing. The set is huge and there were like 30-35 people only.


Rajan Shahi’s “Anupamaa” has managed to create a lot of noise because of its relatable content and striking performances. But like every day brings with it a new challenge for a homemaker, Anupamaa’s life is also full of struggles and challenges.

After winning the competition at her daughter’s school, she is now offered a job, which looks like that of a cookery teacher for S.U.P. W. classes. A thrilled Anupamaa is over the moon and even accepts the offer. And as always, she thanked her husband Vanraj for his support. But will Vanraj support her? Will her family stand by her side? How will her daughter react to her mother’s presence at the same school?

Anupamaa has been underestimated and unacknowledged all her life, by her husband and her kids. The encouragement and appreciation that she never received from her family, she got it from the outside world. The new episodes of “Anupamaa” will put Anupamaa in a new light and will definitely open some new pages in her life.

A homemaker stepping outside her comfort zone to make a name for herself will make “Anupamaa” an interesting watch not just for the woman who stays at home, but for all those who never give up despite the struggles and challenges they face.

“Anupamaa” features Rupali Ganguly in the titular role. It also stars Sudhanshu Pandey, Madalsa Sharma, Paras Kalnawat, Aashish Mehrotra, and Muskan Bamne. Produced under Rajan Shahi’s banner Director’s Kut Productions, the show airs on Star Plus from Monday to Saturday at 10 p.m.


Believe it or not, the Coronavirus pandemic has added a new fashion staple in our wardrobes, yes, masks. Since the outbreak, masks got a creative touch and can be bought in various prints like Aztec, Kalamkari, or fabrics like cotton and denim. It has now become a fashion accessory, which people do not shy away from flaunting whenever they get an opportunity. And something similar happened on the sets of Rajan Shahi’s “Yeh Rishtey Hain Pyaar Ke”.

TV’s favourite couple MishBir, Mishti and Abir, essayed by Rhea Sharma and Shaheer Sheikh, respectively, are back on-screen to entertain the audience after a long break of three months. And though it’s natural for them to be scared too considering the present COVID situation, they’re using this time to show-off their unique masks too. While Rhea donned a blush pink mask along with her golden saree, Shaheer kept it simple with a normal mask that he paired up with his green kurta pajama set. Don’t they look stunning, even with the masks on?

Not just masks, Shahi is ensuring that his team follows all the precautionary and safety measures to avoid the minimum risk of infection. From temperature checks to sanitising the entire sets every three to four hours, and installing hands-free sanitisers at all places, he is doing it all. There are very limited people on the set, which has increased the workload, but hey, nothing comes before safety.

Even during rehearsals and reading sessions, the actors maintain a proper distance and put their masks back on once they are done with their scene. Some actors are even happily doing their makeups and touch-ups on their own, as there are very few makeup and hair artists on-set. And no one is complaining, because what can be more important than staying healthy.


As we all know Covid-19 has been a tough time for all of us but as the unlocking process has began in country wide so the shooting process too began to resume.

Young actor Somit Jain, who you may remember from “Laal Ishq” and “Rishton Ka Saudagar: Baazigar”, has bagged a new show called “Kahat Hanuman… Jai Shri Ram” Where you could see this bright hunk playing a crucial role.

As a dreamer Somit came to mumbai City in 2012 to pursue his Acting dreams from Guwahti and after a tough competition in industry started to get recognition based on his talent & skills leading to this glamorous opportunity in the upcoming show

As per a credible source, we got to know Somit will play the role of “Agni Dev” in the show.
