Actor Krip Suri may play Rahukaal in fantasy show "Savitri" and give hell to the protagonist for rejecting his feelings, but in real life he is a do-gooder.
The actor took time out from his busy schedule to participate in a blood donation campaign organised by Manchester United Cafe Bar in collaboration with Indian Red Cross Society to donate 100 litres of blood on World Red Cross Day Wednesday, said a statement.
The actor, famous for his physique, readily agreed to be a part of the initiative.
The cruel, manipulative mother-in-law out to exploit the devoted daughter-in-law was not too long ago the staple of films as well as TV soaps. Well, movies have moved on and so it seems has the small screen that is keeping pace with the changing times.
Showmakers and actors say the small screen monster-in-law is giving way to the empathetic, understanding mother-in-law for a more realistic portrayal of the age-old, often tricky equation. Love your 'bahu' is now the mantra as the long held image of small screen mothers-in-law undergoes a makeover.
She made the noodle-strapped, halter, backless and low-cut blouses a rage a decade ago, but for her role as an anchor on kids' singing reality show "Indian Idol Junior", Mandira Bedi is ready to put on "lots of clothes".
One couldn't help but ask Mandira what will she wear for the show.
"The dress code is 'lots of clothes'," Mandira, who glamourised the age-old sari and blouse concept as host of "Extraa Innings" during the 2003 cricket World Cup, told IANS.
She broke into laughter, and added: "It will be more clothes than you've ever seen me in before."
Actress Aleeza Khan has not only charmed everyone with her acting skills, but she also impressed the cast and crew of "Jhilmil Sitaaron Ka Aangan Hoga" with her culinary skills.
Everyone from the crew, including the spot boys and the cameraperson, got to taste paneer biryani made by the actress.
Aleeza said: "I love cooking and it acts therapeutic to me. Besides acting, cooking is one thing that comes naturally to me. If not an actor, I would have been a chef."
Though Avika Gor's character of Roli is dead in "Sasural Simar Ka", the actress will return to the show in a new avatar.
She will enter the family drama as Jhumki, a Rajasthani girl who is Roli's look-alike.
Roli's death has shocked the Bharadwaj family, but there is another surprise waiting for them in the role of Jhumki, a rustic outspoken girl.
In her new role, Avika will be seen wearing Rajasthani attire - ghaghra-choli, something that she used to wear for her role in "Balika Vadhu".
