Sharad Malhotra on His COVID-19 Battle: ‘After A While, Self Isolation Gets To You’



Sharad Malhotra on His COVID-19 Battle: 'After A While, Self Isolation Gets To You'

Actor Sharad Malhotra is the latest actor in the television industry to have recovered from a bout of COVID-19. Says Sharad, “The new normal today is that people congratulate you on testing negative.” Sharad, who had tested positive a fortnight ago and was in home quarantine, says it was one of the toughest phases of his life. “I lost my grandmother and my dog during this time and it was really hard to be all alone in a room. It was nightmarish. Luckily, my wife, Ripci, has been taking good care of me and also ensuring I eat healthy food. But when I got the bad news, I couldn’t hold her or even touch her hand. It was the worst feeling in the world that I couldn’t even sit next to her. That’s what emotionally drained me, more than the physical symptoms of COVID-19. The day my reports said I was COVID free, I woke her up and hugged her,” revealed the Naagin 5 actor. Naagin 5 Actor Sharad Malhotra Recovers From COVID-19, Co-Star Mohit Sehgal Says ‘Comeback Soon’ (View Post).

Though he faced setbacks, Malhotra urges people not to be scared of the pandemic and get tested when they feel any symptoms. “I had heard that, at times, people are hesitant of finding out but that’s the responsible thing to do. There is nothing to be scared of. Other than prescribed medicines, I would have kadha and steam twice a day and check my oxygen levels daily as well,” he recalled. Naagin 5: Dheeraj Dhoopar To Temporarily Replace Sharad Malhotra?.

The actor admits that he will remember this experience for the rest of his life. He was able to retrospect and introspect about his life. “I recalled a number of memories sitting all by myself. After a while, self-isolation gets to you as you don’t know what to do. A number of people reached out to me asking after my health and I even learnt that my fans were fasting for my health. It was so humbling to experience such unconditional love. I am feeling so much gratitude as I am overwhelmed. Without COVID, I wouldn’t have realised that there are so many people who love me. Money, fame, work is secondary but the love of your closed ones is to be cherished,” concludes Sharad, who is raring to get back to the sets of Naagin 5.

Bigg Boss 14 BARC Report: Salman Khan’s Show Fails To Grab A Spot In Top 5; Is The Boring Line-Up Of Contestants The Reason Behind Its Low TRPs?




Bigg Boss 14 BARC Report: Salman Khan's Show Fails To Grab A Spot In Top 5; Is The Boring Line-Up Of Contestants The Reason Behind Its Low TRPs?

Bigg Boss, as a reality show has always made headlines for being over the top. Other than that, the controversial show is also known to rule the TRP charts quite often. But sadly, the latest season of BB 14 is not doing wonders in terms of TRP. As the weekly BARC report is out and after analysing it closely, the verdict is that Bigg Boss 14 has not impressed the audience as it has not made it to top 5 TV shows on Hindi GEC (Rural), Hindu GEC (Urban) or Hindi GEC. With just two weeks gone by, we feel it is too early to predict the fate of the show, but, nevertheless, as per fans say, it’s a flop for now. Bigg Boss: On Salman Khan’s Reality Show, Homophobia Is a Clear Winner. 

Well, what could be the major reasons for Bigg Boss‘ failure this season? Well, according to us, it’s the boring line-up of contestants. While there are indeed few smart players in the game, but overall, none of the contestants till now have been able to make a mark. Another thing to notice is that contestant like Nikki Tamboli, who have watched the previous seasons feel that Bigg Boss is all about fights and that is what she is doing on national TV since day one. However, that’s not the only case. Currently, as per the Urban TRP chart, we have Anupama on top followed by other daily soaps.

It is only Choti Sarrdaarni from Colors TV which has grabbed the fourth spot on the list. Earlier, it was reported that Bigg Boss 14’s premiere episode was well-received, but looks like the interest among the viewers have dipped and how. Even after introducing Hina Khan, Sidharth Shukla and Gauahar Khan as mentors, the show has failed to make the right noise.

Meanwhile, the current track on Bigg Boss is that the toofani seniors have left the house. With this, the show now runs on the shoulders of the dull contestants. So, what is your take on this? Why Bigg Boss 14 is not working for the makers? Tell us your opinion in the comment section below. Stay tuned!

Kaun Banega Crorepati 12's Next Karamveer Is Padmashree Awardee Phoolbasan Yadav Of Chhattisgarh's Maa Bamleshwari Janhit Kare Samiti (Watch Video)

When women support each other, incredible things happen! And this week’s Karamveer, Chhattisgarh’s Phoolbasan Yadav, on Kaun Banega Crorepati 12 sets the right example with her exemplary work through Maa Bamleshwari Janhit Kare Samiti. She will be accompanied by none other than actress Renuka Shahane on the Hot Seat. This women-power packed episode will air on Friday, October 23. Here’s what 50 year old Phoolbasan Yadav has accomplished so far – she has been tirelessly working towards the development of economically and socially backward women of Chhattisgarh, India. Yadav’s struggle against poverty to achieve self-empowerment and later helping to empower others, serves as an inspiration in itsef. Resolute in her mission to see women break the shackles of patriarchy, Yadav, through her self-help groups, not only just aids women in being economically self-sufficient by creating employment, but also looks after the village needs like sanitation, health, water and also spreads awareness against child marriage. Apart from that, she has also established a Mahila Fauj to mobilise a de-addiction movement in villages to keep a check on cases of domestic violence. Kaun Banega Crorepati 12: This Week’s Karamveer Are Gyanendra Purohit and Monica Purohit Who Aid Children With Special Needs.

When Mr. Bachchan welcomed Phoolbasan Yadav, she went on to add, “Firstly, I would really want to thank everyone. It feels like a dream to be here on this platform and I would like to thank Sony channel for this opportunity. They say that if you have dedication and the will power, you can achieve everything. I would like to thank my Guru dev because of whom I am here today. I would also like to thank my team of 2 lakh women from Maa Bamleshwari and every household from Chhattisgarh. Gaon ki matti phenkne wali aur gobar uthane wali mahila, Bol na to nahi aata lekin karm karna aata hai, zindagi jeena kaise hai. Mahilaon ko kaise zindagi jeeni chchiye wo aata hai. Pehle gaiyya, bakri charate the… ab mahilaon ko charate hain, zindagi jeene ke liye.” Kaun Banega Crorepati 12: Runa Saha Creates History, Becomes the 1st Contestant to Reach Hot Seat Without Playing Fastest Fingers First on Amitabh Bachchan’s Quiz Show (Watch Video).

When Amitabh asked her how she understood the nitty-gritties involved in finances and running a successful organization, Yadav went on to promptly reply, “If you stay alone, these things will never cross your mind. For example, if you hit a cat or a dog with a stone, they will run away. But try pelting a beehive with a stone. The bees will attack you. This is the might of a sangathan!” With such simplicity she explained that when you are alone, you are scared… but together, you can become a collective force which is unstoppable.

Impressed by the perspective and the determination of Phoolbasan Yadav, both Mr. Bachchan and Renuka Shahane amidst a thunderous round of applause, celebrated her victories. Renuka Shahane, who accompanied Phoolbasan Yadav on the Hot Seat championing her cause, said, “Hearing her story, even though I am well-educated, I feel bad, because having been educated, why didn’t I ever think of doing something for the society just as courageously as her (Phoolbasan). Maybe after this show, I would want to do something.” She also added, “Aaj do lakh mahilayein aapke sath judi hui hain, ab se do lakh ek… mujhe bhi jod dijiye usmai!”

On the upcoming episode, viewers will get to know about the efforts of 50-year-old Yadav, a Padma Shri awardee who has been a beacon of hope for the development of economically and socially backward women of the state of Chhattisgarh, relentlessly since the past 19 years. Watch Phoolbasan Yadav share her nuggets of experiences and achievements with Renuka Shahane, Mr. Amitabh Bachchan and all of us.

BARC Report: Rupali Ganguly – Sudhanshu Pandey’s Anupamaa Tops The TRP List, Takes Over Shraddha Arya – Dheeraj Dhoopar’s Kundali Bhagya (View Ratings)




BARC Report: Rupali Ganguly - Sudhanshu Pandey's Anupamaa Tops The TRP List, Takes Over Shraddha Arya - Dheeraj Dhoopar's Kundali Bhagya (View Ratings)

October 22, 2020 will be remembered for a long time in the history of TRP ratings, for Rajan Shahi’s Star Plus daily soap, the Rupali Ganguly-Sudhanshu Pandey starrer Anupamaa has broken records and topped the TRP charts. What makes the win even sweeter is the fact that Anupamaa, a relatively new show, has beat Zee TV’s all time TRP-Topping show Kundali Bhagya. The daily soap sees the self-discovery of Anupamaa, a woman who dedicated her entire life to her family, only to be looked down upon by them and also a husband who betrays her. The show’s storyline found a lot of takers ever since it launched in July. Rupali Ganguly Feels Anupamaa Was a Once in a Lifetime Opportunity Which She Couldn’t Let Go.

It can be recalled that ever since Kumkum Bhagya and its spin-off Kundali Bhagya were launched a few years back, the shows have always only bagged the top 2 spots on the BARC charts and stayed put over the year in the top places. However, Anupamaa has now created history, after knocking off Kundali Bhagya from its top spot. Rupali Ganguly Recreates Sridevi’s Mr India Hit Number Hawa Hawai for Anupamaa.

Looks like the current storyline of Anupamaa had a huge part to play in the ratings. The show’s latest episodes are focusing on how Anupamaa, played by Rupali Ganguly, finally discovers that her husband Vanraj (Sudhanshu Pandey) is having an affair with Kavya (Madalasa Sarma) and also that he has married her as well alongside Anupamaa. Anupamaa Actor Sudhanshu Pandey Falls Prey to Cyber Crime, Instagram Account Gets Hacked and Deleted.

Anupamaa witnesses Vanraj and Kavya getting intimate and faints, unable to bear the shock of the betrayal by her husband and a lady whom she considered a dear friend of the family. Vanraj runs to wake Anupamaa up as she lies unconscious. He even asks Kavya to go away and that he will take care of his wife.

The family soon discovers Anupamaa’s ill-health and calls a doctor who says that her BP shot up because of some shock. While everyone is trying to find out what happened to her, Vanraj and Kavya are scared of what comes next. The upcoming episode will see Anupamaa gaining consciousness, but what the audience needs to wait and watch out for is whether or not Anupamaa will reveal the truth to everyone about her husband’s lying and cheating ways.
