Lead actress Asheema Vardaan, who reprises her role as Devika in the show’s second season, spilt the beans on the subject. She said, “This time the show is majorly talking about female foeticide and LGBTQ. The show talks about queer marriage which is an important topic to shine a light on as queer people don’t enjoy marriage rights that their straight counterparts do. It’s saddening to see that our law doesn’t see the straight couple and Queer couple the same which leads to social stigma and ostracisation.” It is adapted from Sarat Chandra Chattopadhyay’s epic novel Devdas with a female perspective as Devika. The series gives an unconventional twist to the Devdas storyline with gender reversals. : to Reprise Her Role of Chandni in ALTBalaji Show. 

The second season is more intriguing with its storyline, feels the actress. She added: “Season 2 talks about more serious topics apart from feminism, sexism and homophobia which are brushed under the carpet about which society is reluctant to talk about. It talks about a few more serious things which are happening for a long time. So Devika is challenging these things openly and deals with them. These things are put across in the show sometimes in a strong way and sometimes in a subtle way.”

Talking about her character in the new season, the actress further shared: “Its introducing two new characters Paritosh coming in Devika’s life and Aditi coming in Anurag’s life. These so-called love interests coming in their life is going to be an interesting ride. It’s all about Devika, her life, her journey and how she takes a stand for her friends, family and what she feels is right. Devika is a rebel, fighter who lives her life on her own terms and fears no one. She knows what is wrong and what is right. She is much more evolved in this season and a lot of commotion is happening this time.” Hina Khan Confidently Flaunts Her Toned Body in the Silhouette Challenge and Her Transformation Is Sexy (Watch Video).

Ben Affleck Reflects on Playing an Alcoholic in 2020 Movie The Way Back

Published

on

By

American actor Ben Affleck, who is a recovering alcoholic, recently opened up about playing the role of an alcoholic in the 2020 film The Way Back. The actor played the role of Jack Cunningham, a former high school basketball star who walked away from the sport only to return to the game as coach of his alma mater’s team. Throughout the movie, viewers learn about the pain Jack has experienced from his battle with alcoholism, the end of his marriage, and the loss of his child. Ben Affleck’s Brother Casey Affleck Rubbishes Rumours of Throwing Out Ana De Armas Cutout.

Affleck recently reflected on the film and why it resonates with him. He said in a recent roundtable discussion with The Hollywood Reporter, “I’m a recovering alcoholic and I played an alcoholic in the movie.” The actor added, “It’s really about grief and losing a child, which, thank God, I have not experienced, and is probably the worst thing you can experience. But also, a lot of it is about alcoholism.” Affleck has publicly discussed his own battle with alcoholism and his sobriety journey in the past. Ana de Armas’ Cut-Out Spotted In Ben Affleck’s Trash After Reports Of The Couple’s Breakup Surfaced Online.

“Alcoholism, in and of itself, and compulsive behavior, are not inherently super interesting, but what is sometimes interesting is what you discover about yourself in the course of recovery and trying to figure out what went wrong, how to fix it, how you want your life to look and what kind of ethics you want to live by,” he continued. Affleck said, “So yes, I’m an alcoholic. Yes, I had a relapse. Yes, I went into recovery again. And then I went and did that movie.”

Like his character, Affleck has also gone through a separation. In 2015, he and actor Jennifer Garner announced their decision to divorce. The former couple, who married in 2005 and share children Violet, Seraphina, and Samuel, officially filed it in 2017 and finalised their split in 2018. The actor said, “But for me, the movie was much more about the fact that–whether it’s having lived enough years, having seen enough ups and downs, having had children and divorce–I’m at a point now in my life where I have sufficient life experience to bring to a role to make it really interesting for me.

He added, “I’m not good enough to just invent it from whole cloth, you know? I didn’t have to do research for the alcoholism aspect of the movie–that was covered. It was the Daniel Day-Lewis approach to that.” In fact, Affleck, who has also written, directed, and produced a number of his own films, said it was an “easy adjustment” to return to acting in a movie made by someone else, in this case, director Gavin O’Connor and writer Brad Ingelsby.

Affleck said, “Although some things were hard about it, it was also kind of cathartic and reminded me why I love and started acting in the first place. Even with things that were emotional or upsetting in some way, I was thrilled and exhilarated at the end of the day.” The actor is now putting extra thought into which projects he wants to pursue.

He said, “I’ll be 50 in two years. I have three children I want to spend time with, I have a life that I really enjoy, and I want to really love my work and tell these kinds of stories, with characters that are as rich as the ones that you all portrayed.” The roundtable discussion also featured Sacha Baron Cohen, Delroy Lindo, John David Washington, Steven Yeun, and Gary Oldman.
