Read on: ADDRESS UNEMPLOYMENT: Jasmine Bhasin Supriya likes her Tabbar Mona Veteran actor Supriya Pathak is kicked about her upcoming show Tabbar – a family drama that falls in the thriller zone. Shot in Punjab, the web series had Supriya enjoy the warm hospitality of a Punjabi village. “I had a lovely time while shooting for Tabbar. Directed by Ajit Pal Singh and created by Harman Wadala, it has a strong plot. So performing for it was immensely gratifying,” says Supriya. Shot through the second wave of the pandemic, though the world was going through a harsh time, Supriya felt comfortable shooting in Punjab. “We were in a village in Punjab. It had warm, hospitable people. I did not feel any tension.” The Goliyon Ki Rasleela Ram-Leela actor feels that a consummate cast helps one to perform better. “If co-actors know their job, your response is equally elevated. If not, then you have to work extra hard. That way Tabbar came out to be a remarkable experience.” With a family full of actors – husband Pankaj Kapur and both her children – Ruhaan Kapur and Sanah Kapur, one wonders what their dinner conversations are like. “While we talk about work, dinner time is family time and mostly we talk about others aspects of life,” says Supriya, adding, “I share a lot about characters that I am playing with my daughter and discuss the acting process with my son.” The actress says the consummate cast of the web series helped her bring alive her character I want to give up the habit of taking people at face value. I trust people easily and I have no filters. I am too straight-forward. I should be a little more self-controlled in that regard. As far as society is concerned, unemployment has become a major issue post pandemic. Something must be done to address unemployment. Job opportunities need to be created. Films and web shows do glorify certain negative characters but then we know that it is a make-believe world. Audiences are not looking for role models in films and web series and are watching for entertainment. Time to start afresh! MAKE WOMEN SAFE: Asheema Vardaan On the personal level the biggest evil I have is my sugar intake. I have a sweet tooth, so this Dasehra I would definitely cut it down. In society I feel the evil is that women do not feel safe even in their own house because we do have culprits in our society in various forms and relations. Talking about content, I honestly feel that it’s a debatable topic. Makers should know their obligation towards society before making such content because people do get influenced by what they see. DOWN WITH BULLIES: Tanushree Dutta Apart from Tabbar, there are other projects – Rashmi Rocket, and another set of films and web shows in different stages of completion. We hear Supriya is a huge binge watcher. “I like the OTT, it’s a kind of personalised space,” says the actor who along with Indian shows, loves watching Turkish and Spanish shows. Over four decades in the industry, Supriya feels it’s a whole new world. “Entertainment is now global, which wasn’t the case when I started. Today, expectations are huge,” says the actor, who loves Chandigarh. “While it was conceptualised as the most perfect city, over the time it has grown but has maintained its basic character. I love the greenery and vibrant character of Chandigarh,” she signs off! Tabbar airs on Sony Liv today. I’ve sometimes had huge problem dealing with people due to my soft nature and have suffered immensely as a consequence. So, on a personal level, I wish all the obnoxious bullies start getting their comeuppance. In society too I see that pleasantness, kindness and generosity are considered weaknesses. This needs to change. About audiences liking negative characters, I think people in the real world feel powerless in their goodness, so they tap into evil and wickedness to feel a sense of power. For me reality still is love, light, bliss and positivity. I don’t watch anything that disturbs me. TIME MANAGEMENT: Mrunal Jain GO CORONA GO: Mugdha Godse FEAR NO MORE: Himanshu Malhotra I often end up not returning the calls of my loved ones. I return all professional calls but personal calls I forget to return. I want to improve my time management. Evil exists everywhere and that is a reality. The storyline of films and web series vary and it is a make-believe world, so we shouldn’t judge. What we see on screen, we shouldn’t imitate or get influenced. I would want the pandemic to end. It has taken so many lives. My prayers for it to be taken away. Talking about celebrating evil on screen, I believe they are not celebrated. They are portrayed in a way for entertainment purposes. That’s a perspective on the evil characters and their side of the story. There are black/white/grey characters, so audiences have to be mindful of what to pick. I think the evil that we should definitely try to eliminate from society is fear. Since fear is very enticing and thrilling, that’s one of the reasons why people watch horror films. They all want to feel the intensity of that emotion. So that’s also one of the reasons why negative characters are glorified. It’s my personal opinion. The web is their oyster Remo & Lizelle D’Souza join hands with Suuraj Sinngh to produce content for OTT (L-R) Lizelle D’Souza, Suuraj Sinngh & Remo D’Souza Remo D’Souza and Lizelle D’Souza are all set to don their producer hats again as they collaborate with Suuraj Sinngh to entertain the OTT audiences with unique content.

There was always a keen desire to work with him and I am looking forward to it. I am honoured to have a solid collaborator like Bhushan on my side Anubhav Sinha returns with yet another hard-hitting social drama – Bheed who is such a strong pillar.” Rajkummar shares his excitement saying, “I am thrilled to be working with Anubhav Sinha. It’s matter of great honour.” Breaking the record William Shatner got emotional after becoming the world’s oldest astronaut to have flown to space Star Trek fame William Shatner, who, at 90, has become the world’s oldest astronaut so far, broke down in tears as he came back from his space trip and said that it was “extraordinary”. Shatner has broken the record of aviation pioneer Wally Funk, who, at 83, became the oldest person to have ever flown to space. The booster and capsule of the fully automated and reusable New Shepard rocket landed separately, with the capsule landing in the west Texas desert with the help of parachutes within minutes of their launch to space. Speaking to Amazon founder and Blue Origin CEO Jeff Bezos after the flight, he said, “I’m so filled with emotion about what just happened. It’s extraordinary. I hope I can maintain what I feel now. I don’t want to lose it.” –IANS
