Taapsee asks people to stop using crackers

From the recent past, people are opposing the use of crackers on Diwali and actress Taapsee is one of them. The actress is celebrating this Diwali in Mumbai wither her family members in the newly bought flat. Speaking in a recent interview, Taapsee explained why she is repulsive to the idea of using crackers during Diwali.

Long back, on Diwali, when Taapsee lit up the flame on the stove at her home, the flame turned fully orange instead of blue. When she asked her father for the reason, he said that the high amount of Carbon dioxide in the air is causing the flame to turn orange which is dangerous. Since then, Taapsee stopped using crackers.
Instead, she and her sister Shagun spend at least two hours in making Rangoli at the festival. Taapsee also paints the diyas herself on every Diwali. This year, she wants to celebrate the festival with her parents in the new flat and make them watch her upcoming film, Saand Ki Aankh.

Actor and BJP MP Roopa Ganguly says she is going to boycott certain Bollywood celebrities who are products of nepotism

Roopa Ganguly has a very strong point to make regarding Bollywood celebrities. Ganguly is distraught by the death of Sushant Singh Rajput and has said that she will boycott certain celebrities. In an interview with IANS Roopa Ganguly said, "I will not watch films of certain people after this. Because they have given a message to the country that boys and girls from small towns should not come to the industry. Nepotism will be there everywhere. Parents can help their children. But it should not be practiced in a way so that some people are pushed to death."

Roopa Ganguly also said that she thinks there is foul play involved in the death of Sushant Singh Rajput. She said, "Without getting a suicide note, or any stool/chair or anything in the room with which he can hang himself, the police came to the conclusion (that it was suicide). Instead of calling it an accidental death, the police makes a statement that it is suicide. The narrative was set a few days ago that he was going through depression. That has raised a big question in our minds. Without a suicide note, how did police call it a suicide even before the postmortem?"
She added saying, "I am not raising question on Mumbai Police's capability, but I feel investigation by a central agency like the CBI would be more unbiased. Why should the police department consider it as an insult to take help from other agencies? If they are so sure that it is suicide then they should actually call the CBI to prove it to us."

3 Idiots actor Omi Vaidya opens up about dealing with anxiety during the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic

3 Idiots actor Omi Vaidya recently spoke to Hindustan Times over a telephonic interview. Omi Vaidya is best known in India for portraying the role of Chatur in the Aamir Khan starrer 3 Idiots. In the interview, Vaidya has opened up about dealing with anxiety during the ongoing Coronavirus lockdown and pandemic.

Vaidya said that the pandemic did not just affect him mentally but also affected his physical health. He said, "I lost eight kilograms in just the first three weeks, from not being able to eat, and running around to get essentials. I have never felt this anxiety before. We are so helpless, that’s luckily subsided by now. Unfortunately, in some ways, we have gotten used to it, this new normal. That was hard."
Vaidya also said that as a regular actor the current time is very jarring. He said, "There’s also the existential crisis as an actor, or whatever you want to call me, influencer or celebrity. I don’t have a purpose right now. What can I do? Donate money; that’s about it. I work with a couple of copywriters from India, we wrote a very engaging and hilarious Hindi speech on corona, which I put up on Instagram."
He concluded saying, "Here, they gave us a couple of days, in India it was like ‘it’s locked’ that was in a way good. Here it was crazy, there were lines of people everywhere, people going all over, which would spread the disease more. I went out, everybody else stayed in, my wife and two kids, who are in school. How would we, me and my wife do our work, both of us have jobs. We made sure that we gave our children engaging stuff, not just TV."

Tiger Shroff says he would do anything to play Spider-Man in a future film

Tiger Shroff has made a name for himself in the Hindi film industry with some of the most extreme action-packed films. Just in the recent past, Tiger Shroff appeared in War which made over 300 crores at the box office. However, this is still a certain kind of action film that Tiger Shroff says he would like to do.

In a recent interview, Tiger Shroff revealed that he is a big fan of Marvel's Spider-Man. Shroff said that he would do anything to play Spider-Man in a future film. Currently, British actor Tom Holland portrays the friendly neighborhood Spider-Man in all MCU films. He said, "I would do anything to do a Spiderman film. Ever since I was a kid, I was enticed by the whole superhero genre. I have tried to imbibe their attributes and qualities."
Tiger Shroff also said that he thinks his War co-star Hrithik Roshan would be the perfect Captain America. Tiger said: "I think Hrithik Roshan would be perfect to play Captain America because this superhero is the perfect superhero and Hrithik is a perfect hero as well. I feel Ranveer Singh would pull off Thor because Thor is so electric, and he is the god of thunder as well."
In the same interview, Tiger also said that he is not a party person and easily gets awkward. He added saying, "I'm very awkward at social gatherings. I usually tend to stay away, I'm not much of a party guy nor am I a late kind of person. I go to bed at 10 while these clubs open around 10:30," he said on Zee Cafe show, "Starry Nights Gen Y".
