Alia Bhatt - When I was younger I would kiss my dad on his forehead before going off to school and after every kiss he would say “ Aaaaaah .. light aa gayi “ I might have not fully understood what it meant back then.. but because of his response I understood that light has wayyyyyy more depth than just illuminating our lives. Light means so much. It’s hope, beauty, strength.. today it was unity.. But no matter where we are and what we are going through we must always try and keep the light within us alive 🔥 @aliaabhatt

‘I hope people realise that this bio war isn’t going to profit anyone’ Aditya Seal has a strong message to give during the Lockdown period.
Aditya Seal who was last seen in "Student of the Year 2" has managed to grab everyone's attention with his charming looks and acting. Aditya is currently self quarantined at home says he loves being indoors. Here is what Aditya had to say about people roaming around during lockdowns, his message for them and more. When asked about the changes in his life post the Coronavirus Pandemic here is what the actor had to say. “I don’t know yet. We are still in the middle of it. We are still to hit the peak, is what I feel. I don’t know how I will come out of it but I do know for a fact that it will be normal. Hopefully, measures will be taken to undo what we have. I am hoping people realize that this bio warfare is not going to profit anybody. You are destroying the human race. I don’t believe that it came from bats. This is bio warfare is what I believe. I don’t know if I should be saying this but I sternly believe it was. I also sternly believe that it was leaked. People should realize that it is not benefitting anybody and that it is just destroying the human race.” Aditya says he has been acting a bit paranoid about the entire situation but at the same time making sure to take all the necessary precautions. He says, “I am wearing a mask and gloves. Even when I need to go out to buy essentials, I do not go without wearing gloves. I am not touching any foreign object with my bare hands.“ Lastly he requests everyone to be at home and stay safe. He had a strong message to give out during this time of crisis. “We need to come out of this strong. We need to come out of this soon more importantly. Make sure people around you are not acting stupid. There have been people who have been stepping out of the house like nothing is happening. I believe they do not understand the seriousness of the situation. If our PM has come to you twice and asked you to stay indoors, it is serious. Do not act smart or stupid or like nothing is happening. We are going through a very tough time. We need to be in this together because you may not know that you are the carrier and you are affecting at least 2-3 people at home. I am not missing my freedom. I love being indoors. Everyone who used to crib about work and who wanted to be home, just take this time and be at home.” On this work front Aditya will be next seen opposite Kiara Advani in ‘Indoo Ki Jawani’.
Neha Kakkar and Jaani's next – a heartbreak anthem Jinke Liye Out now on T-Series
A recent survey in India has revealed that Neha Kakkar has left all her contemporaries behind by miles and claimed the top spot as the most popular singer in the country today. The songstress, known to have the Midas touch has delivered with each and every song she sings. Her last big music single Yaad Piya Ki Aane Lagi starring Divya Khosla Kumar was a runaway hit with over 235 million views on YouTube already. Now, after the super successful track, she's back with yet another music video for Bhushan Kumar's T-Series. The song, titled Jinke Liye, is a soft, heartbreak number that also features music composer and lyricist Jaani alongside her. The song is from the album Jaani Ve, which also includes the hit track Pachtaoge.
The song depicts Neha and Jaani playing a married couple, whose lives go through tumultuous times because of a situation. Jinke Liye, essentially a sad, soulful number captures the essence and the mood of this situation perfectly. In fact, to do justice to her part, Neha had gone completely quiet on the set while filming it. The ace singer had to mentally prepare herself and tap into her inner vulnerabilities and emotions. There was a scene where Neha was required to break down during the shoot of the video and the singer actually broke down!
Neha smiles and shares, "I had to tap into some of my own experiences to do justice to the scene where I break down".
Unlike Neha, who has shot several music videos in the past, this is a first for Jaani. Although Jaani has been the main guy behind super hit heartbreak numbers such as Pachtaoge, starring Vicky Kaushal and Nora Fatehi, he has never appeared in any of the music videos. So the celebrated music composer took several tips from the Garmi singer to nail his part. Neha was extremely supportive and helped Jaani throughout. Talking about Jaani, Neha says, "I didn't have to teach him or guide him. He acted like a professional. I have always admired Jaani's work. I keep saying that he's the Gulzar of our generation. He makes fantastic songs without a doubt. All his fans will be surprised and happy to see him in this new avataar. Also, Khaira is my most favourite video director and BPraak has given amazing music too"
After her spectacular performance during the two day song shoot that left everyone surprised, the entire film crew went ahead and congratulated Neha and even suggested that she consider acting as a full-time job. Given her brilliant act in Jinke Liye, we can't help but agree. The intensity, the pain, the angst and the agony were palpable in the topnotch portrayal of Neha’s character.
Bhushan Kumar, head honcho of T-Series, adds, "Neha Kakkar is one of our best T-series artists. We are extremely proud of her achievements. Jinke Liye is starkly different from what we have seen Neha sing in the last few months. She's an extremely versatile performer and breathes life into anything she sings or does. Here, not only has she sung the song to perfection but even enacted the emotional scenes brilliantly. Jaani, who has delivered many hits with us in the past is also terrific with the lines and the composition. He is going to surprise people with his acting debut. B Praak's music, as always is outstanding. I'm sure Jinke Liye is definitely going to tug at your heartstrings."
Jinke Liye, produced by Bhushan Kumar, sung by Neha Kakkar, featuring Neha and Jaani, has been written and composed by Jaani, with music from B Praak. Arvindr Khaira has directed the video, which is out now on T-Series' YouTube channel.
