Shivin Narang and his love for cricket

Shivin Narang is surely a treat for sore eyes in his latest look for his show Internet Wala Love. The actor, who looks simply dashing in his role of a radio jockey in the show, recently had to shoot a cricket sequence. He dressed up in cricket gear and we are impressed!

The actor says that he has always loved cricket. “Like every Indian, I am also equally fascinated with cricket. I am passionate about cricket and watching cricket matches,” he says, adding, “I was very regular with the matches. But honestly, after Sachin sir left cricket, I am not that regular.”

Shivin Narang: For me, every shot is like my first shot

In fact, the actor has played a lot of cricket in his childhood. “We used to play gully cricket. Being a Delhite, I was lucky that we had big grounds to play. My bowling is very strong and my friends used to be scared of my fast bowling,” he says.

Ask him if he is excited about the World Cup, and he says, “Yes! I am really excited. I believe in our country, cricket unites us and if our team wins, we feel proud.”

Shivin Narang: For me, every shot is like my first shot

He has become quite a household name with an immense fan following, however, actor Shivin Narang has never let the success to go his head. The actor, who has successfully completed seven years in the industry, says that he still approaches each show like it’s his first one. “It has been an amazing journey. Being an outsider, coming from Delhi and being part of the industry for 7 years seems amazing. I remember the first day very well. Entering the sets, meeting people, actors, I was excited, nervous and didn’t know what will happen. I also perceive that life is full of surprises. I guess giving the first shot is also a big thing. But for me, every shot is the first shot and I give it with the same enthusiasm and energy. I have always experimented with myself and I always tried to give my best to my shows,” he says.

Talking about his journey, he says, “My first show was Surveen Guggal -Topper of the year. I was contacted through Facebook by the makers of the show. It was funny. At that time, I was modeling in Delhi. I found it fake as you don’t think you will be contacted for a show on Facebook. Then I came to Mumbai where several know actors were there for the audition. By God’s grace, I got the show and since then there has been no looking back. I am lucky that I have good people around me; good actors, good makers and many others who have guided me throughout.” “Every day cannot be the same and life is full of ups and downs. But I have a lot of people with me and a lot of love for me which kept me motivated,” he says.

The actor’s current show Internet Wala Love has also completed 100 episodes. “It seems really nice to complete 100 episodes. I have been part of the show since the show was building and the story was being written. I have seen this project growing as a baby. It’s really very special for me and this is a show which was like an experiment as we have an introduced a youth show on Colors. So, it was challenging and it had the efforts of the whole team. This show has made good space in spite of having so many juicy and dramatic shows on the channel. The audience’s love is amazing and I feel it’s doing well,” he says.

The actor is a youth icon and is grateful for the love and work that he has received over the years. “I am really happy to get the opportunity to play different roles in different shows. All the shows have been liked by the audience. It’s great to receive such love and adulation from the fans and audiences. Whatever work I have done- be it advertisements and shows, all of them were very successful,” he says.

Shivin Narang has been single contrary to permanent rumors of his link up with Smiriti Kalra. But latest buzz is that he is in love with his unique co-star a dog called wifi. He is a big dog lover, however, his hectic life in Mumbai does not allow him to keep a pet. The actor is thrilled to have a pet on his show Internet Wala Love. “As our show is ‘Internet Wala Love’ and my character and my family is internet savvy, the name of the pet is WiFi. You know how these days we can’t stay without wifi, so that indicates how much we love our dog. I share a great bond with this dog,” he says.

The actor adds, “I remember since I was born we had a dog. And till now, I had 2-3 dogs in my home. But now, since I am working in Mumbai, I have not kept any pet because, in our work, timings are never constant. I don’t want my pet to suffer. I believe pets are very sensitive and they need a lot of love attention and your care. I can’t keep a pet just for my personal happiness.”

However, he really wishes he could have a pet. “It’s very true that dogs are a man’s best friend. They love you, they care for you and protect you and give you all the attention and love. Their presence is like a therapy to be happy,” he says.

Aditya Roy Kapur lets go of his fitness routine for Kalank!

While most stars would spend hours at the gym getting in shape for their films, Aditya Roy Kapur underwent a body transformation of a different kind for Karan Johar’s Kalank.

Aditya, who is undoubtedly one of the fittest actors in the industry, had to lose muscle and sport a leaner physique for the film, keeping it as real as it could get.

Since the young star had bulked up for his previous film, he entirely stopped working out and resumed his regular diet to achieve his naturally lean frame.

Says a source, “Aditya enjoys going to the gym and most of his films in the past required him to sport a muscular physique. However, he had to lose all the muscle weight for Kalank, given that the film is a period drama and his look had to be natural and real ,typical to that particular era. Aditya stopped training in the gym and let go of his diet, eating just about anything to achieve the look”.

Aditya Roy Kapur is currently shooting for the next schedule of Kalank with Alia Bhatt and will soon start prep for Mahesh Bhatt’s Sadak 2.

Karan Johar, says, “Heard all the songs of Jalebi and I’m absolutely spell bound! Kudos to Mahesh Bhatt and Mukesh Bhatt for creating magic, time and over again! “

But what goes into the making of the trademark Bhatt sound? It is believed that the reason their music works is because the sounds are fresh and have soulful  melodies that resonate with listeners and stick in memory.

A long-time Bhatt collaborator, Pritam narrows down the secret ingredient. “Being soulful, this is what a traditional Bollywood album is all about”.

The one word being repetitively used by everyone we spoke to, to define this soon to be released album is “soulful” and “melodic.” Some are even calling it as the surprise album of the year.

A multi-composer album, the lyrics of each of the songs are deep, enthralling and emotional and brings the album alive.

Gul Panag to essay main negative lead in Naman Nitin Mukesh’s directorial debut

Actress Gul Panag who made headlines after having kept her pregnancy under wraps, will not just be playing mom to her six-month-old son Nihal but also will be playing reel mom in Naman Nitin Mukesh’s untitled thriller drama. The film also features Neil Nitin Mukesh and Adah Sharma in pivotal roles.

Last week the news of Gul playing a sports coach in Karan Johar’s college drama ‘Student Of The Year 2’ made its way to the internet and now we have learnt that the well maintained actress has bagged the main negative lead in Naman Nitin Mukesh’s directorial debut.

Talking about her role Gul Panag states, “This is the first time ever that I’m dabbling in the grey shade spectrum. I was always apprehensive to play a part that required me to look much older than what I really am but the script just drew me in.”

Naman Nitin Mukesh adds, “We wanted to cast someone who doesn’t have a pre-conceived perception in the minds of the audience and the trade and someone who hasn’t attempted playing a negative character previously. We wanted to bring forth the unpredictable layering with her character and she can effortlessly pull off the multiple shades of grey.”

NNM Films and Madan Paliwal of MIRAJ will jointly produce the thriller drama which is being directed by Naman Nitin Mukesh and written by Neil Nitin Mukesh and features an ensemble casting. The mahurat shot will be inaugurated at Mukesh’s 25th Ganesh Chaturthi celebrations and thereafter the film will be shot in Alibaug and Lonavla over a span of 3 months.
