Neha’s wedding not a publicity stunt

The catchphrase ‘Nehu Da Vyah’ is taking social media by a storm. What initially seemed like a publicity stunt for Neha Kakkar and Rohanpreet Singh’s song ‘Nehu Da Vyah’ is turning out to be a real affair. Photos from Neha and Rohanpreet’s Mehendi and Haldi ceremony have surfaced online recently, making everyone finally believe that the singer-duo is tying the knot.  In one of the photos, Neha can be seen sitting on a couch and getting her Mehendi done. In another, she is posing with Rohanpreet and her family, who are all dressed in yellow attires. 

With the Mehendi and Haldi ceremony almost done, it seems like the big day is not too far.  Recalling the day Rohanpreet proposed to her, Neha recently wrote on Instagram, “The day he proposed to me! Life is more beautiful with you.” She further shared a video from the day Rohanpreet made Neha meet his parents. Reports are rife that Neha and Rohanpreet will get married this weekend in a close-knit affair in Delhi and eventually host a reception in Punjab for family and friends.  Reacting to their wedding reports, Aditya Narayan, who hosted the latest season of ‘Indian Idol’ judged by Neha Kakkar, said, “Is she really getting married? I haven’t received the so-called wedding invitation.” 

The actor turned singer added, “It’s all very strange because she met this guy for the first time when they shot a video together a few weeks ago. Is it possible for someone to meet and marry in a month? Neha is no giddy headed teenager. Significantly neither Neha Kakkar nor her alleged groom-to-be has made any statement about the supposed wedding. All I can say is, I do hope it’s happening. Otherwise, why have the two parties in the supposed wedding alliance slowed rumours and unconfirmed reports to go this far?” Meanwhile, Neha’s ex-boyfriend and actor Himansh Kohli told another news portal, “Well if Neha is indeed getting married, I am happy for her. 

She’s moving on in her life, she has somebody and it’s great to see that.”   Amid the confusion, reports quoted Neha’s undisclosed friend saying , “ No she’s not getting married. The Rohanpreet rumour is just as phony as the earlier Aditya Narayan marriage hoax. I don’t know why Neha allows herself to be a part of such cheap publicity gimmicks. And more importantly, how and why do the media fall for it repeatedly.”

HERE’S WHY SUMEET WAS SCEPTICAL ABOUT HIS ‘DARK7WHITE’ LOOK

Published

Sumeet Vyas

With his amazing acting skills and path-breaking roles, Sumeet Vyas has owned the digital space in the true sense, and he is now once again ready to rule the web world with his portrayal of Yudhveer Singh in ALTBalaji and ZEE5’s ‘Dark7White’. Seen in a never-seen-before avatar in the series, Sumeet was a little skeptical about his look when he took up the project. After all, this is the very first time where he will be seen with a full-grown beard and long hair. But he has nothing to worry about, as fans are already in awe of his look.

 Speaking about his look in the series, Sumeet quipped, “I was running away from the look as I’ve never kept long hair or a full-grown beard till date. Our director Satwik Mohanty was very keen that I should have this look. I was trying to convince him that please don’t do this as it will be very difficult for me to maintain it. He told me that I can put on a wig along with a fake moustache and beard, it might not look convincing. I told him that I will go in with his conviction, and I am glad that I did that as it’s a very interesting look and had to come out naturally.” Streaming on ALTBalaji and ZEE5 from 24 November, ‘Dark 7 White’ is a youth-oriented political murder mystery that’s narrated in a quirky storytelling style laced with dark humour.

FEW FILMMAKERS ENVISION WOMEN CHARACTERS WITH EQUAL FOOTING: MRUNAL

Mrunal Thakur

Mrunal Thakur feels that very few filmmakers give equal footing to women characters in their movies. According to her, Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra is one of those filmmakers who treats female characters in fheir films well. “There are very few filmmakers who envision a story that gives its women characters an equal footing. In the best of Rakeysh’s works, one can see how beautifully he layers his women. Be it Soha Ali Khan’s Sonia in ‘Rang De Basanti’ or the female characters in ‘Delhi 6’ or ‘Bhaag Milkha Bhaag’, his women are memorable,” said Mrunal. 

She will be seen in Mehra’s next film ‘Toofan’ alongside Farhan Akhtar. “In ‘Toofan’ my character is an anchor to the narrative despite not being the driving force of the plot. It was a beautiful experience working with Farhan and Rakeysh. They subconsciously help you push yourself to explore things you haven’t tried. The little nuances they bring to their work teaches you so much,” she said. “I have learnt so much from ‘Toofan’, most importantly (the fact) that women in new-age narratives aren’t ornamental. They have a solid ground to stand on and the male actors like Farhan facilitate that,” said Mrunal.

Amazon Prime Video presented the official trailer of ‘Sons Of The Soil’ recently. It is a gripping documentary web series that goes behind the scenes to follow one of India’s most celebrated Pro Kabaddi league team the Jaipur Pink Panthers. The series talks about the struggles, pain, and the ultimate journey towards success. It also shows, the journey of the players, their motivations, and how a team collectively builds a plan towards achieving success.

 The trailer showcases the journey of the team Jaipur Pink Panthers in the Pro Kabaddi League. The video of the trailer begins with a visual of Abhishek Bachchan, who owns the Kabaddi team, motivating the players. He establishes his motto in a sentence – “I like to celebrate a victory and I really don’t like losing.” There’s also a glimpse of Abhishek’s father and Bollywood veteran Amitabh Bachchan in the video. Jaipur Pink Panthers’ official page shared the video on social media and wrote: “The Panthers are all set to leave their mark beyond the mat.”

Abhishek, who seems very excited for the sports documentary, says, “It is a historical moment for me to launch the web series ‘Sons Of The Soil’. It is a journey of what happens in the back of the team. The series showcases a microscopic view of success and failure of a team and people associated with the team.”

 Captain of Jaipur Pink Panther Deepak Hooda, who shares a brotherly bond with Abhishek, says, “Abhishek is like a big brother and a friend who always motivates the team. It never felt like he is the owner of the team.”

Abhishek concluded by saying “I have never been this excited in my life. Sports has taught me character building, the never say die attitude, how to bounce back after a fall. Failure has a nasty way of dealing with you.”
