And the best way to find some relief from the current situation is to escape into comedies. Today (May 2), on World Laughter Day, we list down few feel-good shows that one can binge-watch for comic relief BhaagBeanieBhaag—Netflix Disney+ Hotstar has roped in Sid Makkar for an upcoming thriller titled Six. Sid will be seen portraying the role of a wealthy businessman, whose murder leads to some shocking revelations. Speaking about the same, Sid says, “Kashish Sura is an exciting part to play. A successful businessman is murdered. This reveals a gamut of secrets and sus- pects connected to him, which forms the core mystery in the story. But, is Kashish truly the man that everybody thinks he is? The mystery around his character makes him layered. The plot will keep audiences guessing until the very end.” The thriller also stars Mandira Bedi, Dipannita Sharma and Nauheed Cyrusi, among others. Led by Swara Bhasker, this Netflix original has the actress playing the role of an aspiring stand-up comic caught between personal and professional problems. Swara nails the portrayal of a young woman who is tired of living up to everyone’s expectations and wants to break free from a deadend job, looming domesticity, a relationship that can offer her security but not freedom. Watch this endearingly flawed heroine who wins the day every time with her honesty. Pushpavalli — Amazon Prime Video One of the most loved originals on Amazon Prime Video, Pushpavalli is remarkable for many reasons. With great insight, Sumukhi Suresh plays the protagonist, an obsessive young woman who will stop at nothing to win the man she believes herself to be in love with. This dark humour shows us how many boxes women have to tick before they can see themselves as worthy of love. The Office – Disney+ Hotstar Character calling Actors love to challenge themselves and keep surprising the audience with different roles.

The character Jhanjharika is very different from anything I’ve done before. She is stubborn and determined. The character is very attractive and I want to explore more of these. The character has power and is very intriguing.” The ‘boss’ in the series played by Mukul Chadda has mannerisms that remind viewers of many similar characters they may have encountered in their families, offices or neighbourhoods. This man is delightfully unaware of his own lack of wit and keeps trying hilariously to cheer his team of morose and uninspired employees. Watch The Office if you are looking for some soothing, rib-tickling binge watching. Relive the nostalgia with a series that gave a refreshing new twist to the old saas-bahu format. Sarabhai vs Sarabhai with its bunch of idiosyncratic characters can offer hours of entertainment leaving the person refreshed and energised.

The character of Ajay Singh is very tough.” Gullak by The Viral Fever brings alive the everyday issues, conflicts, joys and sorrows of a middle-class family in a small town without losing its sense of perspective and humour. Unemployment, financial tensions, strained relationships, and more are faced by the Mishras as a family. This slice of life series is bound to bring a smile on your face even on a hard day. Namak Issk Ka completes a century Namak Issk Ka has won millions of hearts with its gripping storytelling and entertaining characters. The cast and crew of the show celebrated a century recently as they completed 100 episodes of the show. An excited Shruti Sharma aka Kahani says, “100 episodes have never felt this special for any other show. The love and appreciation for the show and my character Kahaani have made a special place in my heart today.” Shruti adds, “I hope that the show keeps going from strength to strength and we keep celebrating similar milestones.” Further talking about the achievement, Aditya Ojha aka Yug says, “This is a new experience for me. This is my first show on Indian television and the first time I am celebrating 100 episodes. I am grateful for these positive moments that we get amidst the stress, and I want to thank the viewers for their support!” Eyebrow transplant has become a popular solution for those looking for the perfect shape Eyebrows are the most expressive feature and create a masterline of the face. It is the reference point towards which all other angles and contours of the face are set. Because eyebrows carry an aesthetic appeal of the face, it’s quite common for people to modify eyebrows to achieve the desired shape, form, length and density. Apart from aesthetic requirements, there are several instances when people opt for eyebrow transplant, like due to the impact of over plucking, illness, cut or scar, trauma, thin eyebrows or eyebrow hair loss due to hormonal imbalance or disorders. Revolutionary technique Follicular unit extraction (FUE) hair transplant is a revolutionary way to address the eyebrow hair Beneath the arch ISTOCK DOC TALK DR VIKAS SHARMA How is it done… loss. With growing awareness about the procedure, eyebrow transplant has become a popular aesthetic solution. However, though it is a small area, it requires a lot of precision regarding anatomy, designing of brows, extraction and implantation technique. This is a very delicate procedure, requiring perfect placement of the hairs into tiny half-millimeter incisions that are angled at just the right direction and positioned to mimic natural growth. The use of all- c m y b microscopically dissected grafts allows their placement into the smallest possible incisions so as to minimise scarring and damage to already existing hairs. A procedure typically involves the placement of 50 to as many as 325 hair into each eyebrow, depending upon the existing amount of hair and the desired size and density. Performed usually under local anesthesia, the twohour procedure is essentially painless, as is the recovery period. Eyebrow hair transplantation is performed as an in-office, outpatient procedure under local anesthesia. General anesthesia is not required. Eyebrow transplants are the best way to achieve permanent, three-dimensional eyebrows. With transplantation, your own hair is transferred typically from the back of the head to your brow region to create a new, fuller eyebrow. Hair grow naturally and are permanent. It is being preferred over techniques like microblading. Microblading is a method by which pig- ment is used to create the appearance of hairs within the very outer layers of the skin. This process is not real hair, does not give a threedimensional look, and tends to fade over time, so it’s a process that needs to be repeated to maintain results. While in eyebrow transplant, the transplanted hair is real, permanent, give a three dimensional look and continue to grow. The eyebrow transplant results will be visible normally after a couple of months of procedure. The full impact will be visible over the course of the next 6-7 months. The FUE method of facial hair transplantation offers minimal aftercare and downtime, and significantly less risk of any scarring.
