Actress Maanvi Gagroo, who played one of the protagonists in the International Emmy-nominated show Four More Shots Please!, says that with time she has become more comfortable with her body and that in turn helped her in engaging in fashion evolution for herself.

Talking about body positivity, Maanvi said: “I never considered myself fat or ‘not attractive’ until I began working in the (film) industry. At the beginning of my career, many people told me how I am not skinny enough to play a lead actress or healthy enough to play a fat girl. You are in the middle so either put on weight or lose weight. I was always like, ‘this is who I am, normal girls look like this’. Why does it have to be about weight at all? Ater’s definition or description can’t be based on his or her physicality.”

However, she added how the web series “Four More Shots Please!” changed her wardrobe for the better.

“Post ‘Four More Shots Please!’ I have only worn shorts, because I used to feel conscious about my legs being bigger than other girls’. Those things happened very subconsciously. This was something that Anu Menon, the director of the season one, pointed out to me. After we finished shooting season one we had met one day for lunch and she said, ‘do you realise that you have started dressing up like Siddhi (Maanvi’s character in the show)’? I was like, ‘you are right’. I had not realised that at all until she pointed it out,” said the actress, who appeared in other web series like “Permanent Roommates” and “Made In Heaven”.

“Personally I became much more comfortable with my body. Although I was never uncomfortable with my body, I did have certain things like I would not wear shorts,” she reiterated.

 The release date of Aamir Khan’s ‘Laal Singh Chaddha’ has been pushed back once again due to delays amid the Covid-19 pandemic.

The Aamir Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan-starrer, which was expected to release around Christmas this year, will now be releasing on Valentine’s Day next year.

Aamir Khan Productions made the announcement via an Instagram post on Sunday.

The post reads: “We welcome the decision of the administration to allow cinemas to re-open from 22nd Oct.”

“Due to the delays faced as a result of the pandemic, we will be unable to release our film, ‘Laal Singh Chaddha’, this Christmas.”

“We will now be releasing ‘Laal Singh Chaddha’ on Valentine’s Day 2022.”

The announcement comes just a day after Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray on Saturday announced that all cinema halls and drama theatres in the state will reopen from October 22.

‘Laal Singh Chaddha’ reunites Aamir Khan with his ‘3 Idiots’ co-stars Kareena Kapoor Khan and Mona Singh. The film also features Naga Chaitanya and Manav VJ in key roles.

Directed by Adavit Chandan, ‘Laal Singh Chaddha’ is an adaptation of the 1994 Hollywood film ‘Forrest Gump’ which was based on Winston Groom’s 1986 novel of the same name.

It is produced by Aamir Khan Productions, Viacom18 Studios and Paramount Pictures.

Sanjay Leela Bhansali on the inception of his debut web series ‘Heeramandi’

As Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s upcoming magnum opus ‘Heeramandi’, his first-ever web series, is soon to be released, the ace director shares his inspiration for making the show.

Talking about its inception, Sanjay said, “I remember when I was a four-year-old kid and my father had taken me to a shoot and he said you sit here and I’ll meet my friends and come. I was in the studio and it seemed the most comfortable to me. More than a school, a playground, a cousin’s house, or anywhere in the world, I thought it was the most beautiful place. When I look back at 25 years, I think it’s very precious to me because you have to be blessed to be able to get a chance to make a film and that’s why I cling on to the studio because the studio floor is the most magical, that’s my temple, that’s my everything.”

He further added, “‘Heeramandi’ was something that my friend Moin Baig got to me as a 14-page story, 14 years ago and then finally when we presented it to Netflix, they loved it and they thought it had great potential to make a mega-series. It is very ambitious, it’s very big and vast. It tells you the story of courtesans. They kept music, poetry and dance and the art of living. It shows the politics within the brothels and how to emerge as the winner. It is a difficult one but I hope we come across with flying colours this time.”

The series will explore stories of courtesans and the hidden cultural reality of ‘Heeramandi’, a dazzling district, during pre-independent India. It’s a series about love, betrayal, succession and politics in the ‘kothas’.
