AFP LUDHIANA | SATURDAY | 27 APRIL 2019 No trash passing please Mona L PLOGGING RUN & CLEAN IKE many of our city’s fastidious joggers, Sandeep Kumar Pahal runs too, twice a day. Only, his gear is slightly different. No earphone plugged to his ears, no phone strapped to the shoulder, he is rather carrying a big black bag that gathers weight as he continues along the jogging trails of the city. At times he is laced with gloves, and he is not to miss picking out any piece of plastic that comes his way. Ploggers are a new tribe invading the earth only to save it. They are the regular joggers who have taken upon themselves to get their running trails free of plastic, and how. If Sandeep is one, there are other conscientious runners too who double up their jog time to increase step count on their smart watches while reducing carbon footprint.

She says people, irrespective of the industry that they are part of, are still looking for equality and safety. Talking about the evils in Hollywood that she would like to stand up against, Larson, also a director, said, “I think it’s kind of the same for every industry right now. From the conversations that I have had...we are still looking for equality and safety for everyone...to feel good, their work is appreciated, their minds and bodies are safe wherever they are.” She shared that playing the superhero with a military background has brought about many changes in her life. “I just feel like in particular, with the strength training and getting to be Carol Danvers (Captain Marvel) for a little bit, I feel like it changed me. It made me carry myself differently, more upright for sure and that has helped me move forward for sure. It was great to be able to share that character with the world and see that power can go through the screen to other people as well,” she said. The Room actress does get affected by the characters that she plays on the big screen, and she has ‘little tricks’ to be herself again. “Whenever I start playing a character, I end up being somebody else for way more hours of the day than I am being myself. So, I usually try to come up with some ritual so that at the end of the day, I am back to myself,” she said. This is also the reason why Larson likes to take “big breaks between movies”. “That’s my time to kind of figure out what I want to keep. There are also a lot of things that I am ready to let go of. She has reprised her role as Captain Marvel in the latest Marvel Cinematic Universe’s film Avengers: Endgame, which is expected to smash box office records across the globe. —IANS PVR Pictures is all set to charm Indian audience with the release of their romantic film, After, which hits cinema halls on May 3.

Selma Blair plays an integral part in the film, as she portrays mother of the lead, Tessa Young (Josephine Langford). Talking about casting, Anna Todd shares, “Selma Blair as Carol is my teenage dreams coming true, because I loved Cruel Intentions. Selma and Jo not only look alike, their spirits are the same. I honestly feel like every single person in the cast is exactly who they should be, even if they are these huge movie stars.” Selma adds, “I love being a small part of something that has energy around it and people really want to see it already. Carol (my character) wants so much for her daughter Tessa. Tessa is beautiful and has promise and they’ve worked really hard to get her to school. This is really a defining moment in Carol’s life and, of course, in Tessa’s life. ” c m y b ‘I fall for you every day’ Sana Khan confesses love for dance tutor Melvin Louis Sana chose Louis’ birthday on Thursday to announce their relationship status via Instagram, where she put up their photographs. “I never knew I could love someone this much until I met you.
