Sheeba Akashdeep to rewind to the 90s in Haasil

Sheeba Akashdeep (Sarika Raichand) who recently made a comeback on Indian television with the show ‘Haasil’ will be seen rewinding to the 90s in the upcoming flashback sequence in the show. The actress who took inspiration from none other than Nita Ambani for the role of Sarika Raichand in the show didn’t have to look further for inspiration than her own movies for this sequence! 
Says Sheeba, “90s is undoubtedly a golden era and I have some of the best memories of those days. Shooting for the flashback sequence brought back several fond memories for me from that era – the makeup, the cult fashion sense, and most importantly reliving the days of my movie shoots. I was quite excited when I told that the story will go in the flashback into Sarika’s life in the 90s and some scenes will be shot moving away from my current industrialist avatar to a more simplistic look. I had loads of fun shooting and the scenes have come out well. I, in fact, shared some of my pictures in polka dot dress with some of my friends who completely loved the look and we all got into talking about our good old days then.” 

In the upcoming episode of Haasil, the story will move into a flashback focusing on Sarika’s past before she went on to become the influential Sarika Raichand, the classy business-woman and mother of Ranvir (Zayed Khan) and Kabir Raichand (Vatsal Sheth).

Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai’s Mohsin and Shivangi shoot in cold wate

Rajan Shahi’s show Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai is one of the longest running shows on the television. Its success has a lot to do with its hardworking cast, who leave no stone unturned to make the show a grand success. One such example is actors Mohsin Khan and Shivangi Joshi’s recent shoot.
The two were expected shoot in cold water for three days. And even though the production tried to cancel the shoot, they insisted on continuing “It was commendable that both Shivangi and Moshin did three sequences in three days which required them to be in extremely cold water and weather.
We decided to change the sequence for their comfort but once they got to know they insisted that we do not creatively compromise and did all the three sequences. Seeing their enthusiasm and commitment, they received a huge applause from the entire team,” says Shahi.
The show has a wonderful set of actors who will ;et go of personal comfort to make sure the show does well. Acts like these inspire others from the team to work hard too, says Shahi. “When actors work with so much enthusiasm and commitment, it inspires the entire teams to give their best too,” he adds.

A blast from the past- tell us how you got into the television world? 
> I always wanted to do acting despite of being in the family of wrestlers and I am also used to being a wrestler. So, at the peak of my student's life, I decided to come to Mumbai and try my luck and with the grace of God, my parents were also in supportive of my decision. And entered the world of acting.  I have never studied at any acting institutions.  I directly started giving audition for serials and other daily soaps.

How is to be constantly judged when you make an appearance?
> Neither do I judge anyone nor do I like to be judged. Because I wear my heart on my sleeves and say whatever I feel like. I don't spend too much time on my looks and appearance.

How important is it for an actor to look good on screen?

The most interesting aspect of being an actor.

> To stay away from my family for work after my father's death is the hardest thing I can ever think off. 
How has the glamour industry changed you as a person?
> Change with fashion is equally important like changing with time. For a successful person, it is really important to constantly change their looks, attires and characters. People should not get bored by them. A person should always go beyond their comfort zone. I believe change is the only constant thing which we have to carry forward. 
Fashion gives you an opportunity to be what you want to be. What’s
your take on it?

Preetisheel Singh impresses with The House Next Door; awaits Padmavati

National award-winning make-up and prosthetics artiste Preetisheel Singh has once again managed to receive rave reviews for her art with the Siddharth-Andrea Jeremiah horror film The House Next Door, making the ghost flick extremely believable and spooky. Based on a true story, director Milind Rau’s film is made in three languages. Apart from The House Next Door in Hindi, it has released as Aval (She) in Tamil and Gruham (Home) in Telugu, garnering acclaim for all three versions. "The film makes audience cower in their seats biting their nails while trying to look away from the screens," reports The Indian Express. Times of India calls it a "well-executed" and "gripping" film, while First Post says, the "ghost flick is terror-ific". Preetisheel uses her prosthetic make-up for ghostlike apparitions says Gulf News, "which are way removed from the regular pan-caked powder faces of other Indian films." Scroll calls the film a "very well crafted and a commendable addition to the genre" and Bollywood Life writes, the "film manages to scare the daylights out of you." Apart from critical acclaim, actor Siddharth is ga-ga over Preetisheel's work. "Her design framework has brought a sense of professionalism to the whole experience of prosthetic make-up," says the actor. It can be noted that a few months ago Preetisheel received accolades for the look she designed for Nawazuddin Siddiqui in the Sridevi-starrer Mom. She now awaits the release of Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Padmavati where she has designed the looks for Ranveer Singh, Shahid Kapoor as well as Deepika Padukone.

Actress Daisey Ridley on being a female hero for Star Wars

Actress Daisey Ridely who charmed audiences in her kickass stellar role as Rey in Star Wars: The Force Awakens is all set to revisit her character in December's Star Wars: The Last Jedi. The actress has slowly risen to be an empowered icon and will be seen performing her own stunts and fighting the dark side in the latest Star Wars film.
When asked about the importance of being a female hero Daisey opens up and says, "I like that I never questioned being a heroic woman in a film, and that’s thanks to my upbringing. My mom’s always worked; the women I grew up around always worked and were inspirational. Some have family, some don’t. People just living their lives. So, it’s weird because the way people reacted made me question more than I did. It’s a great role but not just because she’s a woman. That’s how simple it was to me. But others were like this is a big deal, clearly. But it’s exciting to be a part of that. And I’m like, let’s continue. This is how it should be."
In Lucasfilm’s Star Wars: The Last Jedi, the Skywalker saga continues as the heroes of The Force Awakens join the galactic legends in an epic adventure that unlocks age-old mysteries of the Force and shocking revelations of the past.
The film stars Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Adam Driver, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong’o, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, Anthony Daniels, Gwendoline Christie, Kelly Marie Tran, Laura Dern and Benicio Del Toro.     
Star Wars: The Last Jedi is written and directed by Rian Johnson, releasing on 15th December 2017
