He said he has never been happier. IANS LUDHIANA | MONDAY | 30 AUGUST 2021 Sheetal T KRITI SANON ‘A lot more to discover’ Kriti Sanon has found her feet in Hindi cinema in just seven years. She has worked in hits such as Heropanti, Bareilly Ki Barfi and Lukka Chuppi, among others. The actress does not want to stop, as she says she is not satisfied with where she is. She and is sure that there is still a lot more inside of her to discover. Kriti made her Bollywood debut in 2014 with Heropanti, where she was paired opposite Tiger Shroff. The actress, whose latest release is Mimi has her hands full now, as her line-up includes Hum Do Humare Do, Bachchan Pandey, Bhediya and Adipurush. About her journey in Bollywood, she says, “I think my journey has been very fruitful and I believe that your journey should have an upward curve; it shouldn’t go stagnant at any point. There should be something that you are constantly learning. I am not HE festival of Janmashtami is here and it is time for fun. Celebrated on Ashtami, the eighth day of the Krishnapaksha in the Hindu month of Shravan (August-September), the festival marks the birth of Lord Krishna. As we celebrate Janmashtami today at our homes, because Covid-19 still lurks, celebs recall their fondest Janmashtami moments and the principles of Lord Krishna they follow in life. All the fun: Delnaaz Irani from a film background and I didn’t think of becoming an actor.” Janmashtami is all about colours, music and fun. During this festival, we have seen people going in trucks and enjoying. It’s not like we are Parsis, so we don’t celebrate. We do celebrate it in our own little way. Learning curve The 31-year-old actress, who secured a degree in Electronics and Telecommunication Engineering, adds, “I am an engineer, who happened to find what she was meant to do — acting. With Dimpy (her character in Heropanti), I was still finding my way. I have always been a thinker so I tend to think and question a lot. I want to learn.” Kriti is also a ‘quick learner’ and says she wants to grow. She says, “I want to become better than what I am already doing and that has always been a driving force for me. I am just happy to see that I have grown and have learnt a lot more about my craft. I am not satisfied with where I am; I am sure that there is still a lot more inside me to discover. So, that is what is exciting.” — IANS On Janmashtami, celebs recall their fondest memories of the festival and what they have imbibed from Lord Krishna’s teachings Lesson from Lord Krishna: The key to happiness is the reduction of desires. ISTOCK In the Lord’s name Flower power Sheena Bajaj Since childood, I have always seen Janmashtami as a fun festival. But due to the pandemic it’s not safe, unless we all are vaccinated. The best memory is when I attended a Janmasthmi puja at a friend’s place. Lord Krishna was decorated beautifully in flowers. Lesson from Lord Krishna: Among all the things present, time is supreme because time kills everything. Great learning: Aishwarya Khare My father is a bhajan singer. So, on every Janmashtmi, he does Jagrata (night vigil) in a Krishna temple, which we used to attend since we were kids. There used to be this huge Laddoo Gopal ji’ s idol and at midnight, grand celebrations took place. Lesson from Lord Krishna: You have a right to perform your prescribed duties (karma), but you are not entitled to the fruits of your actions. Celebration time: Rohit Purohit Festive fervour: Jasmin Bhasin I have seen Dahi Handi celebration in Jaipur once. Even in school, we used to have that celebration. It used to be a lot of fun, as I used to get a lot of laadoos to eat at home as well as in school. I want to celebrate Janmashtami in Mathura. I grew up in Kota, Rajasthan. Someday, I would like to go to Mathura and celebrate Janmashtami there. I’ve heard the celebrations are huge in Mathura and Vrindavan. Festive fervour always makes one happy, as it brings a lot of positivity. I like to eat sweets like jalebi and laddoo on the occasion. Lesson from Lord Krishna: For the one who has conquered the mind, the mind is the best of friends, but for one who has failed to do so, the mind is the greatest enemy. Lesson from Lord Krishna: A man is made by his beliefs. As he believes, so he becomes.

In films, I always like to watch Dahi Handi and Janmashtami celebration. And one of my favourite songs is Mach Gaya Shor from the movie Khuddar. Lesson from Lord Krishna: Whatever happens is for good. Whatever will happen, will also be good. Do not worry about the future. Live in the present. Authentic look... Here’s how Kangana gained weight for Thalaivii Kangana Ranaut will be portraying the role of late actor-politician Jayalalithaa in her upcoming film Thalaivii. The makers of the film recently released the song Teri Aankhon Mein and talking about the same, Kangana says, “Jaya Amma’s songs are significant because they are a part of pop culture. This song is an amalgamation of those tracks. Jaya Ma and MGR gave 60 to 70 songs together. They worked together for decades, but we had to crack it in four days. In a day, I would go through several looks and hairstyles.” Kangana adds,“My director took it upon himself to make sure I was well-fed. His mother’s handmade meals came in three tiffins,” adds Kangana. The film is slated to release on September 10. SEPTEMBER 1: Dog Days on Disney+ Hotstar Live life: Pranitaa Pandit SARA ALI KHAN AND VICKY KAUSHAL Has Ashwatthama been shelved? It was earlier reported that Sara Ali Khan and Vicky Kaushal would be paired together in the modern-day mythology, The Immortal Ashwatthama, but, now, according to latest reports, the movie has been shelved. Ashwatthama has been indefinitely put on hold due to budget issues, as the team had to suffer massive losses due to the lockdowns.A source shares, “Ashwatthama has been in the preparation stage for over two years now. The team did multiple recces, worked on the entire previsualisation, held multiple meetings with the VFX team, and got an international action unit on board to train Sara and Vicky for their action-packed role over the last one year.” The source adds, “Producer Ronnie Screwvala spent over Rs 30-crore to get everything in place, and, now, the entire investment has gone for a toss. The film was initially planned to be made in a certain amount of budget, but as the pre-production work kicked-off, the budget kept on increasing by the day. Finally, he felt that it’s better to let go off the investment of Rs 30crore, rather than burning his pockets in the longer frame of time.” Meanwhile, Vicky will be next seen in Sardar Udham Singh and a biopic on Sam Manekshaw, whereas Sara will star in Atrangi Re.
