TMS TRIBUNE Life In noble footsteps As we celebrate Gandhi Jayanti today, celebs talk about Mahatma Gandhi and what they have learnt from his teachings Patience & dedication: Rohit Choudhary True follower: Charrul Malik Gandhi ji was a great man and that’s why everyone calls him bapu. The biggest learning from him is the patience and dedication that he had. During my young days, I was very aggressive but later realised that things could be sorted without being angry, as preached by Gandhi ji. The other thing that I learnt from bapu is consistency. Keep working till you achieve your aim. I always follow Gandhi ji’s saying — bura na dekho, bura na bolo and bura na suno. He taught us how to keep moving forward with simple thinking and never hurt anyone. He laid great emphasis on banishing untouchability, fostering Hindu-Muslim unity, promoting literacy and more. He moved people with his sincerity and sacrifice. I have implemented his lessons very seriously in my life. Inspirational figure: Sumit Kaul Mahatma Gandhi is one of the most inspirational figures in the world. His personal journey is something that we should all know about and take inspiration from. His life teachings would be always relevant. Being compassionate: Hiten Paintal The most important lesson I have learnt is that it’s not only important to be human, but be humane and take into consideration others’ feelings before saying or doing something that could hurt them. People react because they are in a different situation and it’s for others to understand that. Also, I’m a huge animal-lover, so being compassionate towards animals is something that I have always practiced. Total conviction: Vijayendra Kumeria Mahatma Gandhi’s nonviolent approach was proof that he was a person with conviction. A lot of his sayings are documented, but, unfortunately, most people use them on social media posts without understanding their true meaning. Do not waste: Arun Mandola I read a story about Mahatma Gandhi that one day he was near a river and asked Jawaharlal Nehru ji to give him water for washing hands. Nehru ji said he could take it from the river. Gandhi ji replied if everyone thought there was enough water, it would be wasted! So, I never waste natural resources. Audio drama Actress-singer Shruti Haasan has added another feather to her cap as she lends her voice to the international audio drama ‘Sandman: Act lll’. TMS LUDHIANA | SUNDAY | 2 OCTOBER 2022 Master of disguise Actor Chandan Roy Sanyal has taken slow yet sure steps in filmdom and wants to make a mark with each role he essays UP’s summer in June in a black suit is tough, but Sanjay ji had it tougher. It becomes easy when your coactor is as accommodating and funny as him.” Web zone In the web series Karm Yuddh, Chandan Roy Sanyal plays a journalist. Chandan describes his role as, “One of those TV anchors who is very Sheetal A CTOR Chandan Roy Sanyal has a long list of films under his belt, but it is OTT that has given him wider recognition. The actor remains almost ‘unidentifiable’ as the character he portrays casts a bigger shadow on the audience! Only a true cinephile can remember him as Mikhail from Kaminey or Joseph D’Costa from Deepa Mehta’s Midnight’s Children, but everyone would know the Bhopa Swami from the hit show Aasharam! On Friday, two of his projects, Woh 3 Din and Karm Yuddh, were released. The former is a film, which marks his comeback to theatres after a long time, and the latter is a web series streaming on Disney+Hotstar. Chandan shares, “It’s not c m y b A STILL FROM WOH 3 DIN too often that you get to see two of your works releasing on the same date. There’s excitement because I got to play unique characters. The fact that the medium is different for both is a cherry on the cake. As an actor, it’s satisfying to make your presence felt. I am looking forward to viewers’ feedback.” Great feeling On what made Chandan accept Woh 3 Din, he said actor Sanjay Mishra had recommended his name to the director. “It’s always a great feeling when your co-actor has followed your work, watched you perform and then recommended you to work alongside him. I am really grateful to Mishra ji for thinking of me while reading the script. It is a matter of immense pride to share screen space with him and see him work in what he does best — comedy.” Chandan likes to approach every role with a fresh perspective and in Woh 3 Din, he has experimented with ‘social comedy’, which he hasn’t done much in his 16 year long career. “There will be lot of laughter in the cinema halls,” he beams. Shooting with a rickshaw in Woh 3 Din, as Sanjay is the rickshaw-puller while Chandan a passenger, was yet another task. Chandan says, “It was too hot and any retake meant taking the rickshaw back all the way only to be pulled again! Sitting in loud, owns the channel and is very powerful. But it’s not the first time that I am playing a journalist and it surely won’t be the last. I had done a web series called Dheet Patangey, where I played Anand, a newspaper journalist.” Chandan has made a few short films and it is direction that he wants to do in future, besides acting. Fingers crossed!
