Did you know late actor Sushant Singh Rajput slept only for two hours?

Kiara Advani, who played Sushant’s on-screen wife in MS Dhoni, once appeared on YouTuber Ranveer Allahbadia aka BeerBiceps’s channel. She revealed how Sushant told her that the human body only requires two hours of sleep. Following the same theory, she said Sushant was always energised at work and called it ‘fascinating.’

She said, “He was a bit of an insomniac because when I was like so groggy by the end of it like I need to go to sleep, I don’t know he told me this, he said apparently the human body needs only two hours of sleep even when you sleep eight hours or seven hours or whatever each person needs. From that, only two hours is the actual time when your brain is actually sleeping, the rest of the time you may be unconscious or asleep, but your mind is still active.”

“So, he said, I just need two hours of sleep and I was like this is so strange and how does he do this, but he was pretty like energised the next day. He wasn’t tired on set. That was just how he was built and made, it was very fascinating,” she further added.

Sushant Singh Rajput was found dead at his Bandra residence on 14 June, 2020. His death is being investigated by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI). While the agency earlier ruled out possibilities of murder, it’s yet to file a closure report.

Saturday marks the birth anniversary of Sushant. Recently, his sister, Priyanka Singh, posted a throwback picture from her wedding day, featuring him. On the occasion of her wedding anniversary, she fondly walked down the memory lane and wrote, “This date 11 years back you graced Sid’s n mine Union. Always beside us… still feel You that much around even today, each day, my Eternal Sunshine Sushant but our Trident as you called us, is broken!”

Shark Tank’s Namita Thapar slams pitch on dieting: ‘Log ye gimmicky cheezein…’

Published

on

Shark Tank India judge Namita Thapar criticised an idea shared on the show in the latest promo that was posted by Sony Entertainment Television. While listening to the pitch about a diet and nutrition company, the executive director of Emcure Pharmaceuticals, said she is unable to agree to the business idea on a fundamental level. This is not the first time Namita has spoken strongly about issues pertaining to weight loss and dieting. In an earlier episode Namita had shared that she too faced body shaming herself and was even teased as ‘moti (fat)’ in her early days.

In the Shark Tank India season 2 promo released on Thursday, Namita said to an entrepreneur pitching her business idea, “Ye jo apne word use kiya hain na ‘restart’, isi mein problem hein. Ye jo aap bata rahi he na usse mein fundamentally agree nahi kar rahi hoon, ki no exercise… humare saath aate he, restart karte he… Let’s spread the message ki weight loss ek lifestyle change se hota he… aur hum diabetes capital, blood pressure capital ban rahe hain because log ye sab gimmicky cheezein kar rahe hain aur apne health ke saath mess kar rahe hain. Toh mujhe ye sab sunke thoda sa, I am sorry but gussa jaise aa jata hain. I think we need to stop misguiding the country (The word you just used ‘restart’, is my main problem. Whatever you are saying here I am unable to agree on a fundamental level, that no exercise, we restart etc… Weight loss happens due to change in lifestyle, and if we are becoming diabetes capital and blood pressure capital as a country then it is because we are doing these gimmicky things and playing with our health. So after listening to this I feel a little angry, I am so sorry to say).”

While Namita spoke, the other two sharks Peyush Bansal and Anupam Mittal looked at her and seemed to agree with her statement. Some users appreciated Namita’s opinions on the show. One commented, “Hat’s off.’” Last year, Namita had revealed, while speaking to author Chetan Bhagat on his talk show on YouTube, that she used to feel ‘very ugly’ as a kid because of her weight and acne.

Shark Tank India Season 2 is hosted by Rahul Dua, and has Anupam Mittal (founder-CEO of Shaadi.com), Aman Gupta (co-founder-CMO of boAt), Namita Thapar (executive director of Emcure Pharmaceuticals), Vineeta Singh (co-founder-CEO of SUGAR Cosmetics), Peyush Bansal (founder-CEO of Lenskart.com) and Amit Jain (co-founder-CEO of CarDekho Group and InsuranceDekho.com) as the sharks.

Supriya Sule lauds ‘superstar’ Shah Rukh, questions leaders slamming Pathaan | Bollywood

Published

on

Supriya Sule, Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) leader, who is currently a Member of Parliament, spoke about Shah Rukh Khan and his film Pathaan in a recent interview. She also spoke about Madhya Pradesh home minister Narottam Mishra, who had earlier demanded a ban on Pathaan. Supriya said Shah Rukh Khan and Deepika Padukone were ‘looking fabulous’ in Pathaan. The politician added that ‘most people were jealous of Shah Rukh Khan’. Also read: After Pathaan’s box office success, Kangana Ranaut warns Bollywood to ‘stay away from politics’

In December 2022, after the Pathaan song Besharam Rang was released, Narottam Mishra had threatened to ban the movie in Madhya Pradesh. He had objected to Deepika Padukone wearing an orange swimsuit in the song. In following weeks, many other political leaders and organisations voiced objections against Pathaan, which alongside Shah Rukh and Deepika, also features John Abraham. The film was released on January 25, and has broken multiple box office records ever since.

When asked to mimic Shah Rukh Khan, Supriya said in an interview with Unfiltered By Samdish on YouTube, “How would I know? Shah Rukh Khan… please, he is the superstar of India. Right now I am just envious of how good he is looking in that movie (Pathaan). Him and Deepika are looking (gestures feeling breathless)… They are looking fabulous! I think most people are jealous of Shah Rukh Khan…” Supriya then responded to being asked if she would defend the comments made about Pathaan by politicians such as Narottam Mishra, “Not at all, I will not defend. I will pick (up) the phone and ask ‘bhaiya aap ko kya ho gaya hai (brother, what’s wrong with you)?'”

Supriya further said, “But the problem is that why are we even discussing such things. (Late union minister and BJP leader) Arun Jaitley used to say ‘aap dikhana band kar dijiye, log bolna band kar denge (if you stop broadcasting, people will stop saying things)’. Sometimes I think Arun ji is right. It is actually irrelevant, and it become so sad because a lot of other colleagues’ videos started coming out. This is not why we are here for politics. I am not defending either or…”

Directed by Siddharth Anand, the film also features Dimple Kapadia and Ashutosh Rana. As per trade analysts and film exhibitors, Pathaan’s domestic net collection will easily cross 225 crore over the first extended weekend and 300 crore in a week. As per the Yash Raj Films, the production banner, Pathaan grossed 200 crore worldwide in two days of its release.
