Sandesh Gour to make his Bollywood Debut with MeeRadha

After doing various characters in popular serials - right from Saraswati Chandra to Meri Aashiqui Tum Se Hi to CID to Savdhaan India and even doing the most popular show on SAB TV – Tarak Mehta ka Ooltah Chashma, Sandesh Gour from Orange city (now based in Mumbai) is all geared up for his Bollywood debut titled ‘MeeRadha’ which is all set to be released post Diwali this year.

Produced by Surya Prakash Jethlia and directed by Ashish Sinha the film is being made under the banner of SPJ entertainment production. "Shot in Bhilwara and set in the backdrop of Rajasthan, Meeradha is a youth oriented film with a social massage, which will influence the young generation in a positive way, I hope. I am playing the character of a young positive guy and it will trace my journey from a college guy to a matured responsible man, fulfilling his duties,” says Sandesh Gour who is playing the main protagonist in the film. 

MeeRadha will have two beautiful girls Suhani Jehtlia and Venus Jain debuting opposite Sandesh. Speaking about the film, he goes on to reveal that “the most amazing thing about this movie is that most of the actors are fresher’s and all of us have done our work with utmost sincerity and hard work. The characters represent today’s youth and their style of living, their life. His character is good by heart, yet naughty, and with big dreams; but he doesn't wanna work on it. He lives his life in jest and keeps flowing like the river. But, in the end, he realizes that he has to carve out a niche for himself and goes on to become a name to reckon.”

Sandesh went on to add, “Since this is my first big venture and my first Bollywood film, I am a bit nervous but also much excited about the project. Scheduled to hit the theatres post Diwali,the film is right now at the post production stage.”

Orange city has undoubtedly produced few gems in Bollywood and now it’s the turn of this lad and he hopes for the positive and high response from the critics. Though this is Sandesh’s Bollywood debut, prior to this, he has tried his hand in many things and has successfully collected numerous feathers under his cap. He has even worked down south in an important role in a Telugu film "Adavilo" as well as in a Chhatisgarhi film “Daai”, apart from serials. He was recently in the news as his short film ”Muafinaama” won two Best Film Awards which was shot entirely in Kashmir. The film is based on female child abandonment and he is playing a Kashmiri Pandit in it.

When asked how was the experience of shooting in Rajasthan in the summers of May, Sandesh quipped:  “It was a nice experience all together, except for the fact that we had to shoot in 45 degree temperature and that was quite a painful task. But considering my big dream coming true I was fine with it and was more engrossed with the beauty of the location. However, the best part was I visited Brahmaji’s temple in Pushkar, the Dargah of Sufi saint Hazrat Khwaja Moinuddin Chishty’s at Ajmer, the scenic breathtaking locales of Udaipur and others. And I really loved the Rajasthani ‘Daal Bati Choorma’ and their colourful and soulful way of welcoming you ‘Padharo Mhare Des’. It was a real good experience.” 

Though he belongs to an upper middle class ultra sound family, nothing stops Sandesh for putting in his share of hardwork and or facing hardships that any actor struggles to get a toe hold in this industry. “But that in turn has made me self-dependent as well as strong,” adds Sandesh. Speaking about his future, Sandesh dreams to make it big in this industry. But his true calling he says is to be the face of realistic films and earn awards and accolades at international film festivals like Cannes and others. As the young lad gears up for his debut venture, we wish him all the success.

Best Dressed @ Vogue Beauty Awards 2015

The Vogue Beauty Awards is an evening where one doesn't quite know where to look - there's paparazzi getting their fill on one end, and a sophisticated somberly-lit photo booth on another, and video crews trailing the stars as they are gathering sips on marsala cocktails waiting for the winners to be announced.

But the show outside the show is equally important as the awards. The night saw four winning Gauri and Nainika looks on host Neha Dhupia (adorning Gehna Jewellers), winners Anushka Sharma, Athiya Shetty and presenter Nimrat Kaur. Rani Mukerji went with an elegant Sabyasachi by Sabyasachi look, while Anushka Sharma's flirty lemon yellow neoprene and tulle gown made you think of summer.

Supermodel Bhumika Arora picked a black and gold embellished look by Balmain. The man of the hour, Fawad Khan, was dressed in head to toe Dior and we are not complaining.

Bajrangi Bhaijaan’s Selfie le le re is not just the song of the week but also the parody of the week. From the stable of Shudh Desi Gaane (SDG), here comes a musical take stung by the selfie bug and packed with all the pep and pun.

If the Bajrangi Bhaijaan song makers could encash on the selfie wave with punchy lyrics and quirky music, the SDG parody makers are one step ahead. With its shudh desi opening, the SDG spoof features a home-grown Bajrangi Bhaijaan maneuvering every bit like a small-screen Salman Khan tailor-made for netizens. This musical spoof is loaded with moments that go somewhat like, ‘Met with an accident, selfie’, ‘Grandpa dead, selfie’, ‘Bumped in to a bugger, selfie’, ‘Look he’s stalking me, selfie’... In short, its selfie, selfie, selfie, followed by some uncanny hashtags that goes a long way in justifying the selfie mania. 

So, come what may, the latest thumb rule goes, Lights, Camera... Selfie!  Isn’t it?

PS: While watching this Shudh Desi take on #selfielele, it is a must to take a selfie, say SDG’s maverick makers.

You can see what gripped the nation in this hilarious selfie wave, here:
