meet fall in love and then vaat Related News Meri Pyaari Bindu is a romantic comedy where Ayushmann Khurrana aka Abhimanyu and Parineeti Chopra aka Bindu are in love Bindu is a talented singer and Abhi is a writer Today we spoke to the writer – Ayushmann Khurrana and here’s what he has to say about the film Parineeti’s singing talent and also about how he is a family man On life his wife and love “I relate to the concept of falling in love when you are young because I have been in this relationship for the past fifteen years now I was seventeen when my wife and I started dating” said Ayushmann who got married to his childhood sweetheart Tahira and they have two children together The Vicky Donor actor then draws more similarities between him and Abhimanyu the character he portrays in Meri Pyaari Bindu and says “Abhimanyu and I are quite similar he is vulnerable and naive in the film and in my teens I was like that maybe I am more practical now because I have seen life He loves music especially retro music in the film and I can relate to that too” On being a family man When asked about how he has been around for so long in the industry but hardly makes an appearance at parties with other friends in the industry Ayushman says “I am a family man really Four full months I am outside for work so I spend most of the time I have in hand with my family There is bonding with other actors for sure like I love Varun (Dhawan) and Arjun (Kapoor) recently I went to his (Varun Dhawan) place for dinner with my brother (Aparshakti Khurana) so yeah that happens too But I prefer being with my family” On being a part of two National Award winning films When asked how he looks back at his career as an actor Ayushmann says “I don’t know I think if you have talent then you will definitely get more opportunities as an actor I am glad that in the span of five years I have given two National Award winning films – Vicky Donor and Dum Laga Ke Haisha And I am happy that I am getting quality roles like this one in Meri Pyaari Bindu it’s quite a film Bareilly Ki Barfi is also a film adaptation of a novel and then Shubh Mangal Savdhan with Bhoomi is like an antithesis of Vicky Donor Next up is Shriram Raghavan’s thriller which is a different genre for me So I think I am fortunate like that” On how success is a lousy teacher “Success and failure will come and go and I still believe that success is a lousy teacher but failure teaches you a lot Failure is your path to growth I have learnt that at times you get myopic that your role is of utmost importance but then you realise that the film is the ultimate and if the film is successful you are successful Film’s failure doesn’t get on to me I am a very level headed guy I take success and failure equally I am not expressive as a person also if I am happy I don’t get ecstatic and if I am sad I will not cry out loud I am somewhere in between It is the perspective that changes the outside world but internally I just take it as a learning experience” says Ayushmann who takes success with a pinch of salt On his desire to do progressive work When asked if he would like to work again for television Ayushmann says “Web excites me more than TV I started as a youth channel anchor so there was edgy content that we showcased Now it doesn’t happen on TV web is where this edginess has come to TV is quite regressive now especially fiction and web is progressive I would love to do some progressive stuff a web-series looks interesting” On the actors taking on singing debate We have always seen that when female actors take up singing they face a lot of flak but when male actors sing they are not trolled that much To which Ayushmann says “Really I haven’t noticed that I think actresses sing more than actors and actors who sing do more live shows also That is legit that they can sing If you can do a live show with a band that means you can sing and maybe that’s why actors don’t face criticism At the same time talking about Parineeti she is the best singer here She’s been doing live shows since the age of five and she is classically trained with a BA honours in music” Also read:Akshay Kumar thanks people for contributing to Indian soldiers with an inspiring message seepics Recently Bollywood actors were criticised for singing especially when it comes to Sonakshi Sinha Ayushmann Khurrana is one of those who had supported Sonakshi in the whole actor-singer debate On this he says “It is a very Indian tradition of lip-syncing songs I have been to musicals from childhood in the west most of the actors are also singers So I don’t understand what is the whole drama if an actor sings his own songs it adds to the credibility making the character more convincing Having said that when it comes to the Justin Bieber concert it’s just the commercial aspect There is a hierarchy in the industry and we are obsessed with cricket and cinema Automatically cricketers and actors are given the spotlight We believe that Shah Rukh Khan has sung “Suraj Hua Maddham” we consume music visually So in this aspect an actor will be more sellable than a singer it is like that in India we can debate about that being right or wrong but that’s the tradition in our country” For all the latest Entertainment News download Indian Express App IE Online Media Services Pvt Ltd More Related NewsNew Delhi:

bitter episodes between the two countries in recent times has drawn to a close India had put all mutual official interactions on hold for nearly a month after Khobragade was arrested stripped US diplomats of their privileges removed protective barricades at the embassy blocked import of food and liquor for diplomatic staff requested documentation for their employees suspended airport access privileges and more The official response projected outrage at the US for taking India for granted in meting out this treatment to its acting consul general never mind the fact that US arrest procedures treat all accused the same way There was no perceptible dent in the indignation even when US Secretary of State John Kerry reportedly expressed regret to National Security Adviser Shivshankar Menon Khobragade’s homecoming should soothe frictions which have begun to exact a real toll on ties leading to the postponement of a visit by the US assistant secretary of state for South Asia and a cancellation by the US energy secretary Once this is all over there must be a consular dialogue to smooth the wrinkles that have been exposed in the diplomatic arrangements India should resolve the long-running questions regarding domestic staff for foreign missions and their compensation instead of facilitating workarounds and invoking diplomatic immunity to cover for domestic sins The IFS must also use this as a learning moment and understand that it cannot continue in a feudal cocoon that the old sense of elite entitlement is fraying at home as well This is an occasion to look

2015 8:53 am At first sight this may not seem an easy case to make The bitter rivalry between Modi and Rajiv’s son Rahul and also Rajiv’s affable personality versus Modi’s stern disposition seem to preclude any comparison (Source: AP) Related News Comparing political styles is a game professional commentators like to play The popular analogy these days given fresh impetus by the 40th anniversary of the Emergency that went by last month is the one between Narendra Modi and Indira Gandhi Given their shared characteristics which include at the very least an intolerance of dissent a tendency to centralise power and to project oneself as being co-terminus with the nation this is a persuasive comparison But another event also took place last month incidentally on June 25 the same day as the anniversary of the Emergency the launch by the Central government of its much vaunted Rs 400000 crore urban and smart cities schemes which made me think of the resemblance between Modi and another member of the Gandhi dynasty Rajiv Gandhi At first sight this may not seem an easy case to make The bitter rivalry between Modi and Rajiv’s son Rahul and also Rajiv’s affable personality versus Modi’s stern disposition seem to preclude any comparison Indeed if at all it is the similarity between Modi and Rajiv’s brother Sanjay once pointed out by sociologist Shiv Visvanathan that jumps more convincingly to mind Yet a look at Modi and Rajiv’s sudden ascent to the prime ministership and their respective first years in office reveals some surprising correspondences To begin with both were outsiders in politics who managed to win large majorities at moments of relative uncertainty Both were accused of seeking to suppress dissent: Rajiv with his anti-defection law and a failed later attempt at muzzling the press with a defamation bill; Modi with his gag order on ministers and his hostile campaign against inconvenient NGOs Both understood the power of communication and gesture Rajiv’s early forays into the country’s interiors were lovingly captured for primetime telecast as were his various political initiatives including the hastily cobbled together Assam Accord announced with fanfare from the Red Fort on Independence Day 1985 Modi’s early days in office have been similarly marked by a series of made-for-television events beginning with his grand swearing-in ceremony attended by heads of government from the neighbourhood the flashy NRI extravaganzas in various foreign countries and his assiduously mounted tableaux such as the most recent one on International Yoga Day Both leaders in their sartorial style Rajiv with his sneakers and Ray-Bans and Modi with his more laboured executive style came to represent a new more Westernised India And yet both were also associated with a more traditional Hindu ethos In Rajiv’s case the assassination of his mother Indira created a situation for a collapse of the personal and the political: her public funeral with its rituals its bugles and its sea of mourners made for an affective experience in which the bulk of the nation 60 million united for the first time by television’s expanded reach were able to participate The televised spectacle of the aarti at the Dashashwamedh Ghat on the banks of the Ganga in May last year a celebration for the triumphant Modi replete with ceremonial practices and soulful Vedic hymns though more conspicuously planned was like a rerun before an even larger audience Both Rajiv and Modi were associated with episodes of brutal largescale communal violence Following the anti-Sikh massacre of 1984 Rajiv’s election campaign played on subliminal fears of the majority about the threat from “Sikh terrorism” and aggressively attacked his political opposition even suggesting a link between them and the forces of destabilisation Modi’s alleged role in the 2002 violence against Muslims in Gujarat his adamant refusal to express regret for the attacks that took place under his leadership and his self-created image of a protector of Hindus in the state enabled his later projection as a strong leader capable of ruthless action for the furtherance of economic reforms Both succeeded in selling a vision to the masses Rajiv’s electoral success in 1984 marked the point at which India made a clear break from her socialist past and began the slow process of liberalisation Modi’s election in 2014 had the same landmark quality with regard to India’s policy shift Both men sold a promise of privatisation managerial efficiency connectivity technological advance and a modernity modelled after the West If after all this I say that I don’t think Narendra Modi is really like Rajiv Gandhi or like Indira Gandhi for that matter it is because comparing personalities is necessarily an exercise in simplification Political leaders are too complex for easy equivalences What is really of value in the exercise is the opportunity to discover strategies and traits that recur over time and the sense they make of a seemingly arbitrary process of political succession and wider structural change The writer is at the Centre for Contemporary Studies Indian Institute of

“border-free world” by travelling on India’s borderlines with a ‘world passport’ He set off his journey from Kashmir followed by Kutch only for his project to be abruptly ended in Jaisalmer on its 24th day when some locals complained to the police of him indulging in alleged “anti-national” activities Police detained him on August 13 this year and later arrested him under Sections 151 and 101

things would have been different if he wasn’t a Muslim “I don’t want to generalise but for good or bad reasons such things do exist in the world My answer to two questions — What’s your name and where are you from — were more than enough for them to suspect me Another thing that made me ‘suspicious’ was my project that challenges the very concept of borders” said 27-year-old Feroze who has embarked

Assembly has recommended the expulsion of BJP MLA O P Sharma after finding him guilty of using “highly objectionable and insulting words” against AAP MLA Alka Lamba in the House In a report that was tabled in the assembly Wednesday the panel said Sharma was a “habitual offender” and his words against Lamba were used in the “most derogatory and defamatory” manner However Sharma accused the committee of being “biased” as it comprised only AAP MLAs Describing the incident the committee’s report stated “On November 24 2015 around 4 pm House was discussing matter related to night shelters… speaker Ram Niwas Goel sprang to his feet and said Om Prakash ji yeh badtameeze nahi chalegi (this behaviour will not be accepted) Sharma had used highly objectionable and insulting words against a woman member of the House” Reacting strongly to Sharma’s comment AAP MLA and minister Kapil Mishra had moved a motion to refer the matter to the Ethics Committee while the BJP leader was suspended for the rest of the Winter Session by the Speaker The committee found that Sharma was consistently “defiant and unrepentant” over the incident and not “regretful” “Unfortunately he was not amenable to the very thought of being regretful Instead he turned accusatory made unsubstantiated and sweeping charges against the Speaker the Ethics Committee the Chief Minister and the Secretariat of Legislature” stated the report The committee observed that of the 70 MLAs in the House Sharma had been pulled up the most number of times by the Speaker for “indecorous” conduct had a history of repeatedly interrupting the proceedings was “impudent enough” to rush menacingly towards the Leader of the House and has a record of “being fined and warned about unruly behaviour” “He has shown neither remorse nor any sign of learning from his past mistakes… he is a habitual offender Thus we have no choice but to expel Sharma… ” concluded the report The BJP leader while appearing before the committee had accepted that he had used derogatory words against Lamba but tried to “justify” the incident said the report “He tried to draw a connection between the said incident in House and alleged vandalisation of his shop by Lamba in August” stated the report It added “The fact that Sharma tried to offer explanation and justify his utterances is proof enough to deduce that he was conscious of the gross misdemeanour he committed on the floor of the House” The committee also found Vishwas Nagar MLA’s response to the allegation against him “inconsistent” During his final appearance before the committee Sharma claimed that he was the target of a “conspiracy by Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and that members of the committee were biased” stated the report Responding to the committee’s recommendation for his suspension Sharma said the panel was “biased” “ I will apologise if I do anything wrong My house was attacked and they want me to apologise” he said Leader of Opposition Vijender Gupta said

8:24 am Australia’s David Warner — alongside Chris Gayle Glenn Maxwell and MS Dhoni — is known to use one of the fattest bats in world cricket Top News “Test cricket is bloody hard work” Michael Hussey once said “Especially when you’ve got Sachin batting with what looks like a three-metre-wide bat” Size does matter for these men on a cricket field “It’s still wood though isn’t it Ultimately if you can find the best piece of wood you shouldn’t be penalised for that” was how Brendon McCullum put it No longer though MS Dhoni David Warner Glen Maxwell and Chris Gayle — the men who wield fat pieces of wood need to call the wood shavers Ricky Ponting and Mike Brearley among others in the MCC world cricket committee have decided enough is enough and have stepped in to stop the balance loaded too much in batsman’s favour “Bat edges will have a maximum allowance of 40mm and bat depths must not exceed 67mm (60mm plus an allowance of 7mm for a possible curve on the face of the bat) Many of the top players’ bats have edges of between 38mm and 42mm but there are some which have edges of up to 50mm which was felt to be excessive and in need of restriction” the committee said on Wednesday in Mumbai The ruling would take effect on October 1 2017 What are the current dimensions used by the batsmen Paras Anand SG Sports marketing director in Meerut the place where the bats of top international batsmen gets shaped and made throws some light on the issue “With the edges around 45mm and the height of the spine is about 65 to 70 mm The standard bats that we make at SG have edges between 36 to 39mm and the height of the spine about 60 to 64 mm After these modifications I reckon top edges won’t fly for sixes over thirdman anymore” Anand told The Indian Express Ponting framed his concern thus: “The average players’ bat edge size now is 38 and 42mm and there are exceptions to that Some guys use edges in excess of 50 mm That is what we are worried about” Shaving off the leading edge It isn’t the top-edges that Ponting is worried about he isn’t too chuffed with the fact either that even leading edges and mishits are carrying over the boundary Neither is he worried about how the strong men like Warner and Dhoni would handle; it’s the lesser-abled men whose batting skills are enhanced and over-amplified by the quality of wood that he is fretting about “We are always talking about the balance between bat and ball We have seen in the last few years it has gone too far in favour of the batsmen and it is more about mishits going for six Certain top-edges in the game may not travel to deep backward square and fine leg That does not have a lot to do with the shape of the bat more so the mishits or the leading edges off the bat still clearing the boundaries That is one of the concerns The shape of the bat is increasing bigger and bigger” Ponting said It’s not such a clear-cut issue though For long now the bat manufacturers have been laughing at some of the ill-conceived opinions about bats “What we’re up against is the belief that a big bat is more powerful than a bat of the same” Chris King Gray-Nicolls bat maker has said in the past It’s not the size or thick edges but the weight distribution that matters more The density of the willow and the way the bats are pressed has made the bats really light but still packing quite a punch On Wednesday Jatin Paranjpe an Indian selector was seen picking up Virat Kohli’s bat The back-lift would have been almost weightless – such is the way these bats are wondrously designed these days The bats might be bigger these days but not necessarily heavier than the ones used in the past The moisture content on a willow is kept lower and the pressing isn’t done as much as before Also the wood is shaved off from the shoulders to keep the weight levels low This weight distribution gives raise to the bulky middle thinner shoulders and combined with the pressing and density gives the modern-day bats that wondrous paradox: Bulky but not heavy Lots of meat but light Some of the edges might have been scrapped by MCC committee but it remains to be seen whether the batsmen feel really hard done by it For

our sport which must seek to maintain a balance between bat and ball The box office can take sidesthings that look dramatic are always worth a viewbut at heart the game must be fair to bat and ball Wellif not in realityat least in principle The batsmen will lobby for it as industry associations do for excise and tax laws that favour them It is what they must do and they will argue on the grounds of skill and difficulty as Kevin Pietersen has done They are correct in part It is a shot that is fraught with risk and is difficult to play but it is neither legal nor fair Running Ponzi schemes requires enormous intelligence and courageas does forging passportsbut they cannot be allowed on that ground Indeedthis week we saw a demonstration of skill by an outrageously talented young man that was breathtaking to watch Steve Smith caught a ball on the edge of the boundary rope and tossed it in the air as he fell over and stumbled beyond the rope Unfortunately for himthe ball followed him over and showing great presence of mindSmith jumped in the airscooped the ball with both feet airborne back into the playing arealanded beyond the rope and popped back in to catch the ball before it landed For sheer skill and difficultyhe should have been rewarded with the catch but the law doesnt allow it It might seem cruel but is fair On another daya fielder might back pedal a few yards beyond the ropejump in the aircatch the ball and throw it back into playthen either run back or let a team-mate catch it The current provisionwhere the last contact with the ground has to be within the playing areais fair for that reason Can of worms If the Smith catch was allowed on the grounds on which batsman ask for the switch hit to be legitimateit would open up a can of worms And so you have to go by the principle of fairness even if takes away a bit of drama Unless of course you want both sides to benefit which is what will happen if you also allow a right handed bowler to run in and suddenly switch hands to bowl left handed So for the switch hit to be legitimised the bowlers must have equal opportunity The ICC is looking at allowing an lbw verdict working on the principle that a right handed batsman becomes left handed and so a ball that would have pitched outside leg stump is now deemed to have pitched outside off IndeedI believe there is fair ground to allow an lbw for a ball that pitches on either side of the stump when a batsman changes hands (It is of course different with the reverse sweep since a right hander remains a right hander and the feet do not move differently either) And lets allow ambidexterous bowlers too If anythingthe ability to suddenly turn into a left handed bowler is even more difficult than suddenly switching to being a left handed batsman Some years ago a Japanese bowler ran in and bowled with either hand in one of the Asian qualifying tournamentsand while naivete might have been at the heart of that effortit shows it is possible The other interesting bit of news was that the ICC will look at the risk versus the reward of playing the switch hit and see it if is indeed as rewarding as it is made out to be It will be a good academic exercise but the precedent will be dangerous Can you do a similar risk versus reward study on bowlers with bent arms for example (oopsI forgot there arent any and what Ive been seeing
