In an exclusive chat with Nation Next, the very gorgeous Polish-German actress Claudia Ciesla spoke about the perfect present of sex comedy films in Bollywood. Dressed in a cut long black tunic with shredded denims, the Balma girl was also quite prompt in sharing her diet secrets with the young girls who starve to shed those extra kilos. Excerpts:
You are a certified nutritionist who believes in eating healthy over starving. What advice would you give to the young girls
It’s a very good question. I never starve. I probably eat more than all of you combined! Surprisingly, many girls still think that starving is the best way to have the ?bikini? body. It’s completely untrue. They are gradually slowing down their metabolism and are causing more harm to their body. Many of my friends keep asking me how to get glowing hair and healthy hair, to which I reply by saying that all this comes from inside. Only healthy eating can help you look and stay fit. You can’t have samosas and pakoras every day. Not that it’s forbidden; once in a while you can definitely have them. Keep snacking fruits, salads and nuts in between your breakfast, lunch and dinner. Exercising is a must.
You enjoy singing and have worked with German and Hollywood producers. Also, you have worked in German and Italian sitcoms too. What do you enjoy more ? singing or acting?
I was trying my luck in the UK around five-six years back. Singing was something that I started my journey with but I always wanted to make a mark in modelling and acting.
You came into limelight after making it big in Bigg Boss 3. Similarly, your Kya Kool Hai Hum 3 co-star Mandana Karimi also garnered popularity in Bigg Boss 9. Hows your equation with her?
I didn’t know her before Kya Kool Hai Hum 3. I got to know her on the sets. Shes a very strong personality. Shes exactly like the way she portrayed herself in Bigg Boss. I never had any problem working with her.
How comfortable were you working in a sex comedy movie (Kya Kool?) for the first time?
I loved this experience. It was a different one though. Nowadays, sex comedy movies are making bigger bucks at the box office than other regular movies because the new generation is really chilled out about these kinds of movies. People are ready for sex comedy movies. I think if you are spending around Rs 300 for a ticket, you should rather come out of the theatre with a smile on your face rather than crying in the movie.
Tell us about your upcoming projects.
I did hear some narrations before meeting you. I can’t really discuss them as nothing is certain now.
Kejriwal accuses PM Modi of waving off huge loan defaulters ‘behind closed doors’
In a recent interview, Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal spoke on BJP’s corruption allegations on AAP. He said, ‘BJP accuses us of corruption, they have not found one paisa. They have filed 167 cases against AAP leaders over the last 7 years, out of which not one has been proved in court.’
There were protests by Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) employees due to delayed salaries. Following which, BJP accused AAP for not releasing funds. To which Kejriwal replied, ‘In the last 5 years, we have given ₹one lac cr to Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD).. ask them (BJP) where it is now? kha gaye saara’ He added, ‘Give me CBI and ED for 24 hours, and more than half of the BJP party will be in jail’
Kejriwal further stated, ‘Modi ji gives free ki revdi, I do that too. While he does it for the rich, I do it for the public. He is waiving off huge loan defaulters behind closed doors. I do it openly for the benefit of the people. Providing schools and hospitals to the public is not free ki revdi, these acts are called as punya in Hinduism.’
If I make a film with Salman, there’s a risk. If it’s a hit, it’ll be his, if it’s a flop, daddy ki hai: Salim Khan
Salim Khan is one legendary screenwriter of Indian cinema. And also a doting father of his five kids – Salman, Arbaaz, Sohail, Alvira and Arpita Khan. Be it supporting his kids, to making them realise the value of money and fame, he’s done all. He has also been an inspiration to many.
Few years back, Salim Khan was asked in an interview why he never penned a script for his own son, Salman. The legendary screenwriter had a perfect answer, “When a person goes to anybody, they say, ‘I’ve an amazing script. You just hear it’. The other person might wonder, if you really have such an amazing script, why don’t you make it with your son. And if I make a film with Salman, there’s a risk. If it’s a hit, it will be his, and if it’s a flop, daddy ki hai.”
When asked about his retirement plans, he stressed on the fact that he doesn’t feel he can ever. Thanks to his five kids – Salman, Arbaaz, Sohail, Alvira and Arpita – they all turn up to him for everything. “They come to me for everything. If there’s no petrol in their vehicle, they come to me. What can I do about the petrol? If their vehicle isn’t working, they come to me. Koi income tax ka notice aaye toh daddy ke paas leke jao. Toh mujhe fursat hi nahi milti. There are times when I get a call at night 11 that ‘daddy, they want to meet you’. Hence, I’ve stopped writing,” revealed Salim Khan.
He admitted that he got stuck in his personal life duties so much, that he can’t dedicate time to writing. “I now feel I can’t give so much time to my writing. I won’t be able to write professionally. Earlier I would do it with dedication and focus, now I can’t, so I thought better I give up. And I’m in a happy space now,” he signed up.
Amitabh Bachchan’s Jhund co-star from Nagpur ‘Babu Chhetri’ arrested for theft
Nagpur Police arrested 18-year-old Priyanshu Kshatriya who essayed the role of Babu Chhetri in Amitabh Bachchan-starrer movie Jhund. The arrest, on Thursday, came after Pradeep Mondawe (64), a resident of Mankapur area, filed a complaint about theft of jewellery and cash worth rupees five lakh from his house.
The police caught a minor suspect who revealed Kshatriya’s alleged involvement in the crime. The teenager was produced before a court, which remanded him in police custody till November 25.
The stolen items were recovered from a pigeon box in Gaddigodam – an area that incidentally features in the movie. Cops revealed that Kshatriya had been earlier arrested for allegedly stealing mobile phones of train passengers.
Directed by Nagraj Manjule, Jhund is inspired by the life of Vijay Barse, a former sports teacher from Nagpur who introduced slum children to football to keep them away from crime and addictions.
