I travel for 2 hours to reach my set – Aruna Irani

MUMBAI: Veteran actor Aruna Irani, who is currently seen donning the role of dadi in Star Plus’ daily Dil Toh Happy Hai Ji, says she has to travel 2 hours one way to reach her set but she loves it!

The actor has been a part of the industry for almost 6 decades but is still young at heart and wants to keep working until her last breath. She is playing the role of a khadoos dadi on the show for which she is really excited.

Talking about the travel time, she says, “Initially, I turned down a lot of offers because it involved a lot of traveling and regretted them later. When Dil Toh Happy Hai Ji came my way, I loved it so much that I didn’t mind traveling for it. I also made up my mind because most of the sets are far away from the main city and if I want to keep working, I will have to travel.”

Now that’s called dedication!

Rubina Dilaik’s advice on how to love your job

MUMBAI: Rubina Dilaik is currently seen on the show Shakti — Astitva Ke Ehsaas Ki, and her character Soumya Singh is loved by the audience.

The life of an actor is very hectic, and they hardly get any time for themselves. But Rubina has a way out and a beautiful suggestion for that.

She said that she has found her love and is always excited to go for work in spite of the heavy traveling. She also said that she hardly parties and stays away from family and friends for many days but feels blessed to be working hard.

Well, seems like Rubina’s take on this is right, and if one loves what they do, everything will fall into place.

This how Moshin Khan and Shivangi Joshi’s friendship started

MUMBAI: Mohsin Khan and Shivangi Joshi of Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai are one of the most loved on-screen couples. The duo has been playing Naira and Kartik for the past two and a half years and has completed over 750 episodes of KaIra.

Shivangi and Moshin while talking to a leading entertainment portal said that they never thought that KaIra would become such a brand name. They were asked what KaIra means to them, and they said that it means purity, bliss, and magic. Their fans have given them two names: ShivIn and KaIra. While Shivangi prefers both, Mohsin said that he prefers KaIra but also likes ShivIn.

It seems that Mohsin was the first to start the friendship. They had met for the first time during the mock shoot and didn’t talk much. They spoke for the first time during their costume trial.

The moment Shivangi crossed Mohsin’s path, he called out to her and said ‘Are dekho PK lag rahi hai’. And that’s how their friendship started.

Why did Dipika Kakar skip the special screening of Sreesanth’s Cabaret?

MUMBAI: Sreesanth is the first runner-up of Bigg Boss 12, and post his stint, he has gained a lot of popularity and fan following.

Now, the former cricketer is seen on another reality show: Fear Factor: Khatron Ke Khiladi. He will also be seen in the movie Cabaret, which will stream on Zee5 and is helmed by Pooja Bhatt.

Sreesanth recently kept a special screening for his entire gang of friends and family, including his Bigg Boss co-contestants. What was surprising was that Sreesanth’s sister Dipika wasn’t present for the screening.

One of the main reasons for this was because she is busy promoting her husband Shoaib’s debut movie Battalion 609.
