LUDHIANA | SUNDAY | 3 SEPTEMBER 2023 Upcoming talk show Be A Man, Yaar, hosted by Nikhil Taneja, is all about getting Indian men to talk about things they have been quiet about (L-R) Karan Johar, Vicky Kaushal and Naseeruddin Shah with the host Nikhil Taneja on the show Be A Man, Yaar. Sheetal T HERE are many talk shows, but only some that initiate a dialogue. If Karan Johar is the master of the former format, he is the guest on the other! We are talking of an upcoming show, Be A Man, Yaar, whose trailer has already created quite a buzz. Hosted by writer-producer and entrepreneur Nikhil Taneja, the show will deal with diverse topics and answer questions that have never been answered before! Nikhil has been actively involved in addressing issues that youngsters face and provides a platform on social media called Yuvaa, which produces content to educate, motivate and address millennials. In June, the social media platform as well as their YouTube Channel completed five years. While he has always been vocal about mental health, feminism and LGBTQIA+ community rights, with this show, Nikhil attempts to create a safe space for selfexpression, and dismantling stereotypes through fun and engrossing episodes. He shares, “We were doing Yuvaa road It’s a man thing! show before Covid outbreak in 2019-2020 and visited many colleges. I had observed that while many people came forward to share their experiences and problems, it took an effort to get boys to talk. I started sharing my experiences and it helped them open up. The most common thing that we had found was men don’t talk about their problems, they don’t have a shoulder to cry upon! Many were never hugged or told that they matter. That’s when I thought if I could use my contacts and get men that Indians look up to talk and share their experiences. It would inspire and create a ripple effect of change that we all need.” OTT route Nikhil plans to tie up with an OTT platform after this season. While he had no qualms in turning host, thanks to his years of experience in journalism, he did feel getting comfortable with the camera comes with time. While the debut episode will be that of actor Vicky Kaushal, he has an interesting line-up of celebs like Karan Johar, Nakuul Mehta, Naseeruddin Shah, Zakir Khan, Naveen Kasturia, Amol Parashar, Vishnu Kaushal, Govind Kaushal and Sushant Divgikr. Nikhil informs, “There would be bonus episode(s) where women will also be the guests, but we will keep it as Noble aims Singer-actress Selena Gomez reveals her ‘standards’ for boyfriend Actress-singer Selena Gomez, who has previously romanced Justin Bieber and The Weeknd, said contrary to popular perception, she is ‘worth a try’. “I think I have standards, and I think I live in a world right now where boys confuse standards with high maintenance. It really isn’t the same thing,” Gomez said. On her new song, Single Soon, Selena says she’s “a little bit high maintenance, but I’m worth a try.” The singer said that she hadcertain standards and expectations of her partners. She shared: “The line was really fun because I’m not ashamed to say, ‘I actually require X, Y, and Z for you to be with me’ So, in a way, it was just meant to be for the attitude of the song. And that’s genuinely how I feel.” Selena wants her next boyfriend to be “cool.” She added: “Not cool in the sense that people think you’re cool. You just gotta be nice and, like, please make me laugh and also just be good to my family and people around you.” —IANS Singer Rihanna makes a big donation for disabled, homeless veterans Singer Rihanna recently contacted a foundation to make a ‘huge’ donation for the disabled and homeless veterans in Los Angeles. “Rihanna called up the organisation’s founder who distributed hundreds of hygiene kits, socks, clothes, sleeping bags, food, 50-plus pairs of shoes, toilet paper, dog food, you name it…,” a source said. The Umbrella hitmaker did something similar in 2022 when she spent ‘hours’ listening to the concerns of the city’s homeless community. An insider said at the time, “She was genuinely interested and concerned.” Rihanna also made a positive impression on the homeless population. One of them said: “I met Rihanna! The greatest singer on earth. She donated clothes, food and she cares about the veterans.” Rihanna has been outspoken about various social and political issues throughout her career, and the chart-topping star pre- Oh boy! Michael Jackson biopic to explore ‘good, bad and ugly’ of the late icon Real to reel Filmmaker Antoine Fuqua’s biopic on Michael Jackson will offer ‘the good, bad, and the ugly’ of the pop icon. The 57-year-old director has offered fans an insight into what they can expect from the eagerly awaited biopic, revealing that it’s his ‘next project’. When asked about his aim, Fuqua explained, “It is for a better insight on Michael as an artiste, as a human being — the good, bad, and the ugly — and let people decide for themselves what they feel about Michael Jackson.” Despite this, the project is currently on hold due to the ongoing writers’ strike and Antoine doesn’t know when things will move forwards. He shared: “I’m just kind of waiting to see where it all falls out.” — IANS viously spoke about her own experiences of growing up in Barbados, admitting that she took some of her privileges ‘for granted’. She said: “Growing up in Barbados, I did not always love school. It can feel like a grind, especially when you’d rather be singing, playing sports or doing pretty much anything other than homework. I realise now that I often took it for granted that I was even able to go to school. Education can be stolen from you in a second. As we’ve seen recently on an unprecedented scale, the Caribbean gets hit by natural disasters that wipe out schools, leaving thousands of children stranded. In other parts of the world, conflict, poverty, deeply ingrained sexism, and bad public policy keep more than a quarter of a billion children and teens away from getting an education.” — IANS Life cut short Faye Fantarrow, a budding British singer-songwriter, whose debut EP was created by Dave Stewart of the Eurythmics, has passed away. She was 21 years old. She had been battling brain tumour. — ANI FAYE FANTARROW c m y b a surprise till the end. Each one-hour episode will be power-packed. I was amazed at how each guest was able to showcase their vulnerable side and also open up. All of the guests this time were people I knew personally and there was no breaking the ice moment needed to get candid with them.” Nikhil hopes to put together more than 10 seasons in the coming years and wishes the show creates a benchmark, a legacy for others to follow. He adds, “We aim at a fun, candid, unfiltered, raw and real conversation on modern day masculinity. And, for me personally, I would someday wish to have Shah Rukh Khan on the sets.” The show is supported by Rohini Nilekani Philanthropies, with Amazon Music India as audio partner. It will stream exclusively from September 4 on Yuvaa’s official YouTube channel. One episode will be dropped each week. From Karan Johar pretending to love a girl in school days to Vicky Kaushal being called a biba munda, Nikhil says some answers even left him surprised as a host!
