जिस शो में कभी थे एंकर, उसी शो में गेस्ट जज बन कर आये Manish

कल्पना कीजिये, किसी कलाकार के लिए यह कितनी बड़ी सफलता है कि वह जिस शो में कभी बतौर एंकर नजर आते थे, उसी शो में उन्हें बाकायदा गेस्ट जज के रूप में आमंत्रित किया गया. जी हां, यहां बात सबके फेवरेट मनीष पॉल की हो रही है. यह बात जगजाहिर है कि मनीष मनोरंजन जगत के सबसे चहेते एंकर हैं. मनीष टीवी के पहले ऐसे एंकर बन गए हैं, जिन्हें किसी रियलिटी शो में जज बना कर बुलाया। जाहिर है कि मनीष इस बात से बेहद खुश हैं। रिएलिटी शोज से लेकर बड़े-बड़े अवार्ड्स शोज, स्पोर्ट्स शोज और दबंग जैसे शो में भी उनकी ही डिमांड रहती है। ऐसे में नया साल आते ही उन्हें एक और उपलब्धि हासिल हुई है कि वह इंडियन आयडल, जिसमें वह खुद वर्ष २०१८ में एंकर की भूमिका निभा चुके हैं.

manish

उसी शो में उन्हें इस बार सेलेब्रिटी जज के रूप में न्योता मिला। हाल ही में मनीष ने इस शो के एपिसोड की शूटिंग पूरी की है और सेट से कई तस्वीरें सामने आई हैं, जिसमें आप साफ़ देख सकते हैं कि मनीष ने अपने हंसमुख अंदाज़ में, जैसा कि वह हमेशा रहते भी हैं, सबका दिल जीता है और खूब धमाल मचाया है। मनीष ने शो के जज विशाल ददलानी और नेहा कक्कड़ के साथ जम कर मस्ती की है।

मनीष खुद इस बात से बेहद खुश हैं, उन्होंने इस बारे में बातचीत में कहा कि यह सच है कि नए साल से मुझे बहुत सारी उम्मीदें हैं और साल की शुरुआत में ही एक नयी उपलब्धि मेरे खाते में आई है। इंडियन आयडल में जज बन कर जाना मेरे लिए बहुत बड़ी ख़ुशी की बात है, चूंकि इंडियन आयडल एक बड़ा और बहुत प्रतिष्ठित मंच है। इस शो में सभी ने मेरा तहे दिल से स्वागत किया। मैं खुद भी गाने का शौक़ीन रहा हूँ और संगीत की तरफ मेरा रुझान हमेशा से ही रहा है, ऐसे में बहुत ख़ुशी मिलती है कि बतौर होस्ट मैं २०१८ में इस शो से जुड़ा था, उसी मंच पर मुझे गेस्ट के रूप में बुलाया गया। शायद मैं पहला होस्ट हूं, जिसे ये सम्मान मिला है तो मैं बेहद गौरवान्वित महसूस कर रहा हूँ। जब मैं होस्ट था, तब भी मैंने बहुत सारी यादें भी संजोई थीं। लेकिन इस बार अलग ही बात थी। जज की कुर्सी पर बैठ कर समझ पाया कि वहां बैठ कर निर्णय लेना कितना कठिन होता है, जबकि अब तक एंकर के रूप में कई शोज किये हैं। लेकिन इस बार नर्वस भी बहुत था। वहीं मैंने शो के बाकी जज के साथ बहुत मस्ती भी की, विशाल ने कहा भी कि मेरे गंजेपन का मजाक उड़ाने के लिए मनीष इस बैक, नेहा के साथ मस्ती की, आदित्य के साथ भी मजा आया। सभी कंटेस्टेंट बहुत खुश थे मुझे देख कर , तो मुझे बहुत- बहुत मजा आया और मेरी कोशिश होगी कि मैं और भी इस तरह के नए आयाम अपने काम के साथ जोड़ता रहूं । मेरे फैंस को थैंक्स कहना चाहूंगा। उनके प्यार ने ही मुझे यहां तक पहुँचाया है।
बता दें कि पिछले दिनों मनीष के शो मूवी विद मनीष पॉल एक कामयाब शो रहा, शो में उन्होंने खूब धमाल मचाया।

Arjun Bijlani: Kushal Punjabi always had a smile on his face

Actor Kushal Punjabi passed away on Friday leaving the entire TV industry reeling in shock. As per reports, the actor committed suicide. Actor Arjun Bijlani, who was close to Kushal says that the two spoke recently. “Just a few days back, I had a chat with him and he asked me to make some video. Apart from that, yesterday afternoon I had sent him the video of my new show but he didn’t reply. This incident happened yesterday night and I can’t believe it because when we were on set, we spoke about life, work, family and he seemed pretty fine. I guess from the last few months he was going through a rough time but I never thought he would commit suicide. He was such a strong-headed, jovial person…always smiling and very humble. I don’t know why he lost his purpose in life. It’s just a shock to me,” he says.

The two go a long way back. “I have worked with him in the show Ishq Mein Marjawan. Before the show also, I met him a couple of times through common friends. We kind of bonded because he is a really nice guy and we used to sit and eat food together in my room during lunchtime and we use to chat and have so much fun,” he says.

Getting to know of his shocking demise was very disturbing for Arjun. “We have a common friend and he messaged me. I woke up and read that message and it was shocking. I still can’t believe it. It’s very disturbing because he has a very young child. I don’t know what made him take this kind of move. He was always wearing a smile. I know it had something to do with depression or something that he was going through,” he says.

The actor says that things like depression need to be taken care of. “I think we need to wake up to these problems in India and depression has to be treated as a problem. There should be centers to help people and there should be more awareness about depression. I think the world is only getting a tougher place to live in and I think a lot of things affect people and puts them in a depression,” he says.

Arjun admits that the industry is a very unpredictable space. “I think once you have seen fame and success, and then suddenly it goes away and the same people who were praising you when you were shining, disappear, it’s sad. In fact, not only do they disappear, but people are made fun of when they don’t have work. I think it’s very sad. It happens at all award functions. It happens in a lot of reality shows. I think broadcasters and writers especially should refrain from doing this. I urge all the writers and all the broadcasters to not do that because it hurts people and I know people who have been on such show,” he says.

For an actor, it’s important to find happiness in things apart from his career, saya Arjun. “I think you should find your happiness in so many other things apart from your career. There is family, which you can bank on, there are friends who you can talk to. I think as people also we need to be more compassionate. When someone comes and tells you a problem, instead of making fun of it, we should just give them our time. I think that’s one thing as people we need to change. We need to be more compassionate, and understand and talk to people about what they are feeling or at least listen, be a good listener and see something nice in return,” he says.

Vivian Dsena: Just because I am the hero, doesn’t mean I will roam around barechested

Web series might be rife with bold sequences however, actor Vivian Desena says that he is never going to be comfortable shooting these scenes. The actor says that he made this very clear at the start of his career and all show makers who want to work with him have accepted this. “It’s a personal choice I made at the beginning of my career. Just because I’m the hero doesn’t mean I will roam around barechested. It’s an understanding between me and the makers. They know that there are certain areas where I’m not comfortable, so they write the scenes accordingly,” he says.

He adds, “It’s not mandatory for content on the web to be bold. Plus, people have known my limitations for the last 10 to 12 years. It’s a choice I made. And I think the producers and makers I work with, respect it.”

The actor says that he is on the lookout for an interesting and realistic web series. “I have been narrated two or three web series but I have opted out because I didn’t like the concept. Something which is lesser in terms of drama, and more realistic, is something that I am looking for. I saw the Money Heist recently on Netflix and I want something like that,” he says.

Meanwhile, the actor recently wrapped up with his show Shakti. “Life is good after Shakti. I’ve been relaxing at home, chilling at home with my family and having a good time. I am making full use of the break,” he says.

Sanjay Gagnani,Flirty Bhatia

I have never treated him as an animal. I have always taken care of him just like how I take care of my family members. Spending time with him is a huge stress buster. He is very friendly to human beings to everyone, even to unknown people he is very friendly, very lovable, he doesn’t bark at all, doesn’t pee in any premises and very well behaved”.

Sanjay has returned from his New Year Goa trip and resumed Kundali Bhagya shoot. He says, ” It was quickly planned trip with financee Poonam Preet and friends. I love the vibes of Goa. It has wide range of lounges, bars, clubs, and along with that, there is a lot of heritage places too. You can be yourself and chill.

This is my second new year in Goa. But I am never bored with this place because whenever I come here I feel that something is still left because it has so much to explore. I indulge in water sports and I got to spend quality time with my fiancee Poonam Preet too. I couldn’t take my Pet flirty as where we had booked pets were not allowed and my schedules in Goa were hectic and it would have not been possible for Flirty to travel so much”. Well we really appreciate your love for your Pet Flirty!”

Nishant Malkani

Nishant spills the beans on his fitness regime and shares that he is a fitness fanatic, who never misses hitting the gym. He also reveals that he doesn’t follow a diet plan, but does follow a routine just like his idol Hrithik Roshan and that is truly the secret to his hot bod. The actor says, “I do not follow a diet plan per se, but I do eat healthy. Importantly, I avoid junk and sugar. However, I must add that I practice a routine of Intermittent Fasting. Basically, I don’t eat for 16 hours and then there is a fixed 8-hour period when I eat.

He organises all my meals.” But that’s not it!
