We’re still not at the level where we can say everything is fair and square. We are at least working towards it and things have improved from what they were. So I have hope they’re going to get better in the future as well,” Taapsee said.

How his interest graduated to larger creatures, with him keeping a caiman, a magpie and boa constrictors in his parents’ house during early teenage years. Even family holidays became zoological expeditions, which he spent catching snakes and lizards (and later releasing them). And that’s how he came to be a multi-hyphenated personality (a natural history TV presenter, producer, author) with each part finding its connect in nature and wildlife. Currently all excited about his new series Nigel Marven’s Wild Philippines on Animal Planet, he elaborates on what to expect from the show. “The series will showcase the extraordinary natural riches of the Philippines, where many of the country’s creatures have never been caught on the camera before. Hosting about 26,000 indigenous species, from the world’s largest eagle to its tiniest primate, the tarsier, the Philippines boasts of a teeming variety of flora and fauna,” he says Wild & the unknown Having presented more than 30 wildlife programmes and c m y b ter battery efficiency, faster charging and hordes of other features.

The future of Diljit Dosanjh, who has become painfully uninspired with every film, is about to change with Soorma, where the singer-actor plays hockey legend Sandeep Singh. He is sincere, passionate, funny, dramatic and as real as it can get, playing the hockey denizen who lost it all after a gunshot injury and regained it through sheer resilience. The trailer is an exhilarating experience. It shows Diljit wooing hockey colleague Taapsee Pannu and even getting into the game seriously just to be near her. I suspect it won’t only bring back Dilijit into the fray, but will also bring director Shaad Ali back. After a series of duds, Shaad takes charge of his hero’s life story with a firm grip. Soorma looks like every sports biopic we have ever seen. And that’s the beauty of telling a story that motivates us into believing in the power of selfdiscipline. Now is the time to tell the world about a hockey legend whom crippling adversity couldn’t hold down! — IANS Nigel Marven, whose ongoing series on Philippines is already making waves, shares how a brush with wild creatures is fraught with dangers Photo: Twitter series for TV, he has had a close brush with nature and how — having swum with a great white shark without the protection of a cage, having had one of the largest spiders in the world (goliath birdeater) walk all over his face and grappling a 15-foot African rock python deep in its underground hide-out! As fatal as it sounds, at times, it turns out to be exactly that. Does he ever get intimidated? “I’ve done it for so many years… not saying there is no danger, of course it is very dangerous. I have never regretted any encounter with an animal. Well, more than the wildlife, it’s navigating through turns, roads; driving that’s more dangerous,” shares the wildlife enthusiast born in 1960 and known for his unorthodox, spontaneous, and daring style of presenting wildlife documentaries, as well as for including factual knowledge in the proceedings. Of deep impressions Naturally, he has travelled across the globe exploring wildlife and also made a show in India, Ten Deadliest Snakes, for Animal Planet. Well, interestingly, he connected with Indian people not just in the country, but also in Philippines. “The Indian tourists there were very interested in wildlife…I love India…I want to come back. One of the deadliest snakes and several other rare species exist in India.” It’s a country he can’t have enough of in terms of its diversity, not just in people and places but also in terms of wildlife. Having run the 2008 London marathon in four hours, three minutes to try and raise £20000 for the Whale and Dolphin Conservation Society, UK, there is a lot on his platter. But before that, he is all set to get wild with Nigel Marven’s Wild Philippines! email@example.com
