Sukhada Khandkekar styled organza, chiffon sarees, elegant suits for her role of Saraswati

Published

Mumbai, May 27 (IANS) Maharashtrian actress Sukhada Khandkekar, who plays Saraswati in ‘Pukaar-Dil Se Dil Tak’, gave insights into her stylish look in the show, sharing that the makers styled her with beautiful organza, chiffon sarees, elegant suits, and a carefully chosen colour palette.

Speaking about her look, Sukhada said: “They (makers) made me look so beautiful. Tusshar Bhardwaj and stylist Shital Patel ensured that their Saraswati looked stunning. They’ve styled me with beautiful organza and chiffon sarees, elegant suits, and a carefully chosen colour palette. Everything, from my jewellery to my hair is exquisite and is designed for Saraswati to have the elegance of a queen.”

Sukhada has called the show a story of a wonderful mix of thrill, emotions, relationships, love, romance, warmth, and especially a mother’s longing for her children.

“The show features several strong female characters, each living their lives with their own convictions and perspectives. It will be very interesting to see how these diverse characters fit together in one story. It will be a captivating journey,” she said.

Sukhada was a bit sceptical about playing Saraswati, who is the mother of children in their early 20s, and she had never played a character of that age before.

“The makers were confident in casting me and they could clearly see their ‘Saraswati’ in me, so I decided to trust the process, followed the narrative, the brief, readings, mock shoots, and look tests. Playing Saraswati, my eyes often are full of tears effortlessly as I would imagine the moment her daughters went missing,” she said.

The show stars Sayli Salunke as Vedika and Karan V Mehra as Gautam.

It is produced by Prateek Sharma and Parth Shah, under their banner LSD Studios. The show will go on-air from May 27 on Sony.

76th Primetime Emmy nominations: 'Shogun' leads the charge followed by 'The Bear'

Los Angeles, July 18 (IANS) The Television Academy has announced nominations for the upcoming 76th edition of the Primetime Emmy Awards.

The list of nominations includes historic choices and several critically acclaimed titles that had been overdue for recognition, reports ‘Variety’.

‘Shogun’ leads the pack with a total of 25 nominations (including limited series). It also scored first-time acting nominations for stars Hiroyuki Sanada and Anna Sawai.

As per ‘Variety’, the television network FX landed 93 nominations altogether — helped also by the record-breaking 23 nominations (the most in Emmy history) for its comedy series ‘The Bear’.

‘The Bear’ was already an Emmy superstar, having landed 10 wins in 2023 — making it the most Emmys won by a series in its first season. This time, ‘The Bear’ stars Jeremy Allen White, Ayo Edebiri, Ebon Moss-Bachrach, Lionel Boyce and Liza Colon-Zayas all received acting nods.

FX’s surge made it the second-most nominated network this year, behind only Netflix (107). And that put it above HBO and Max (91), which wasn’t one of the top two networks for the first time in multiple decades.

“This one really caught us by surprise and in the best possible way,” said FX chief John Landgraf. “You just feel this overwhelming sense of pride for the artists for the nominees,” he added.

Besides ‘Shogun’ and ‘The Bear’, FX pulled off a comedy series nomination for ‘Reservation Dogs’, something that fans and TV critics had been pushing for years. In its third season, ‘Only Murders in the Building’ finally landed an acting nomination for star Selena Gomez.

The most-nominated limited/anthology series this year was HBO’s ‘True Detective: Night Country’, with 19. NBC’s ‘Saturday Night Live’ was the most-recognised broadcast entry, with 17 nominations.

Other outlets having a landmark year included Apple TV+, which scored 70 nominations — thanks to a surging ‘The Morning Show’ (16 nominations), comedy newcomer ‘Palm Royale’ and the limited entry ‘Lessons in Chemistry’.

The 76th Emmy Awards will air live on September 15. Indian audiences can stream the award ceremony on Lionsgate Play.

Tanvi Shewale 'chill at home in pyjamas, enjoy tea & pakoras' during monsoon

Mumbai, July 17 (IANS) Actress Tanvi Shewale shared that sitting by the window in her pyjamas, and bingeing on pakodas are her favourite things to do during the monsoon season.

Tanvi, who plays the role of Roshni in the show ‘Udne Ki Aasha’, said: “My favourite things about the monsoon season are chilling at home in pyjamas, having tea and pakoras, and enjoying the vibe. I love watching movies with my family while having those pakoras and chai. I don’t like going out in the rain, though.”

She shared: “I don’t like sitting home every day; I love to work. But when I get a day off, it’s very relaxing. I love having a relaxing day when I get a break during the monsoon.”

Getting to work can be tough, she says, commenting: “Oh my God, I remember recently, when it was raining very heavily, I travelled for five hours to get to the set because I come from Navi Mumbai. There was traffic everywhere- -Vashi, Mankhurd, Kurla. It took me five hours.”

“Everyone on set was panicking because I was in every scene that day. It was a very different and memorable experience,” she shared.

However, she is looking forward to the audience loving her on-screen performances during the monsoon.

“Roshni and Tejas haven’t had any romantic scenes yet after marriage, but I hope we get to do some soon. Before the marriage, people loved our scenes and were very hooked, so I think they will like it,” she says.

She added: “If my on-screen character, Roshni, had a monsoon playlist, one of the songs would be ‘Bhage Re Mann’ from ‘Chameli’. I feel that the song resonates with Roshni’s personality. I’ll have to think of another song to add to the playlist.”

The show stars Neha Harsora and Kanwar Dhillon in the lead roles.

The Rahul Tewary & Rolling Tales Production’s ‘Udne Ki Aasha’ airs on Star Plus.

Shambhavi Singh reflects on joyful childhood monsoon memories

Mumbai, July 17 (IANS) Actress Shambhavi Singh has recalled her memories of the monsoon with her family, speaking about how it is one of her favourite seasons, but she is unable to enjoy it fully.

Shambhavi, who plays the role of Preeti in the supernatural thriller ’10:29 Ki Aakhri Dastak’, said: “So, the monsoon season is like one of my favourite seasons of all. I have always enjoyed it, and I remember since school times I used to always wait for the rains to start, firstly because of the holidays we used to get due to heavy rains.”

“I also used to purposely forget the umbrella at home so I could just be drenched and have fun with my friends while coming home. My mom used to be so angry because I would often fall sick after it. So, yeah, I think each and everyone, as kids, has a very special memory of this time of the year,” she shared.

“But things have been a little different as I do not get to spend time near my window eating pudina chutney and pakora, which is made by my mother and one of my favourite things because of my schedule.”

She said that since shooting for ’10:29 Ki Aakhri Dastak’, she did night shifts.

“During the day, I get so tired that all I want to do is sleep. So when I am travelling, I often enjoy the rains, keep my window open, and make sure I have droplets all over my face and enjoy every bit of the monsoon,” she added.

The show stars Rajveer Singh as Abhimanyu Sinha. It also features Aayushi Bhave and Krip Suri.

The show airs on Star Bharat.
