Actress Chitrangada Singh, who is in the showbiz for the past eight years, feels a person’s ambition does impact his or her relationships.
However, the actress says one has to make adjustments and compromises to deal with it.
“Everybody is so career-oriented, everybody is going through their own pressures. Not just in Bollywood, I think it’s everywhere. You have people working, getting ambitious, wanting so much more in life, then you have to make your adjustments and compromises,” Chitrangada told reporters here at an event.
“So it does have a pressure on your relationships. Being ambitious is like a fad and that brings with it so much more that you have to handle,” added the actress, who is married to golfer Jyoti Randhawa.
How do you manage your personal and professional life?
“I don’t have any mantras. I just try and do my best. It’s never a perfect day. I don’t think I always do a great job. I just try like everybody else,” Chitrangada replied.
“I think a poor memory is a good idea,” she added.(IANS)

Actress Ileana D’Cruz suffered from Body Dysmorphic Disorder
At the 21st World Congress of Mental Health here on Sunday, Ileana had a tete-a-tete with Organising Chairman Sunil Mittal on her struggle with depression and Body Dysmorphic Disorder. Ileana was also awarded the Woman of Substance Award for her efforts towards raising awareness about mental health, read a statement.
She said: “I was always a very self-conscious person and was picked on for my body type. I used to feel low and sad all the time but didn’t know I was suffering from depression and Body Dysmorphic Disorder till I got help. All I wanted to do was to be accepted by everyone.
“At one point, I even had suicidal thoughts and wanted to end things. However, all of it changed when I accepted myself and what I was going through. I think that is the first step towards fighting depression.”
The “Barfi!” and “Rustom” actress said depression is “real” and people shouldn’t shy away from seeking help.
“It is a chemical imbalance in your brain and needs to be treated. Don’t sit back and think it will get okay but go get help. Like you have a sprain and go get yourself checked if you have depression, seek help,” she said, urging people to be like Winnie the Pooh. “He wore a crop top, ate his favorite food all day and loved himself, you can too.”
Ileana D’Cruz, whose mother was her biggest pillar of strength throughout, also said imperfections are a part of life.
“I am not saying that I had this miraculous recovery, every day is a process, every day is a step towards healing yourself and getting better. You are a human being and are allowed to be imperfect, and you are allowed to be flawed. There is a lot of beauty in your imperfections, in your uniqueness.
“You may look at us actors and think that ‘Oh my God, they are so pretty, so perfect’. But that’s not how it is. It takes two hours to get ready and look like this. Love yourself for who you are and trust me if you are happy from within, you are the most beautiful person and your smile is your best asset.”
Ileana D’Cruz said she decided to open up about her struggle because “as someone people look up to, even if I can help a handful of people cope, it is worth talking about it”.
The World Congress was organized by the World Federation for Mental Health (WFMH), a global alliance of mental health professionals, national health associations, NGOs, policy experts and other institutions.( IANS)
Soon after a week when the whole controversy came to a chilling note, Twinkle Khanna penned down her apology on Facebook by asserting her comment as a purely unperspective emotion. In her long facebook post, she articulated that this apology came as a mere weapon to save her family and children from this controversy.
Twinkle wrote, “Unwise Wisecracks -As I reflect on my actions this past week, I realize that I got pulled into this debate not as a social commentator but as a wife and unlike my normal, slightly rational self, my reaction was purely emotional and without perspective, and I have been rather miserable about it ever since. I would like to apologize to everyone who felt that I was trivializing the cause of feminism especially because I strongly believe in equality and have been a feminist from the time I was a young woman, much before I even knew the term. I think this came at a point where I was already reeling from an onslaught of abuse against various members of my family, which started with vicious and personal comments about my mother and went on to a widely shared open letter where the writer as a comeback for my comments about Karva Chauth tried to fling muck at every single member of my family. So when in this latest episode regarding my husband, my five-year-old was also dragged in for something that she had absolutely nothing to do with, I reached breaking point. And with my protective instincts in overdrive, I reacted irrationally with the only tools I have that help me retain my sanity in this fishbowl existence -words and lame jokes -though they have got me into trouble often enough in the past as well.”
Akshay Kumar had given a comment to Mallika Dua on The Great Indian Laughter challenge, by saying, “Aap bell bajao, main aapko bajata hoon.” (In the show, the judges are expected to ring a bell when a contestant performs well on the show).
This seemed unbefitting to Mallika Dua and she took to Twitter to stress on her uncomfortability with the comment by Akshay Kumar. Mallika’s father, journalist Vinod Dua also lashed out at Akshay with a demand for an apology. Later, Mallika had deleted her post, while the post by Vinod Dua’s got discarded due to a copyright issue.
