Mumbai, Oct 6: Actress Kriti Sanon loves driving cars, but says that she can tell from her personal experience that it’s a bad idea for girls to have their father’s company on their first drive.

On the sidelines of the showcase of German luxury car manufacturer Audi’s A5 trio here on Friday, Kriti spoke to IANS about her experiences behind the wheel.

Born and brought up in Delhi, Kriti learnt how to drive during her college days.

Recounting her first memory of driving, she said: “It was college first year. I had got my learner’s license and that was the first day I was driving a car. It was exciting for me because before that I only tried my hand at cars of the motor school during my driving classes.

“My dad was sitting next to me and he was anxious from the beginning. I had to take a U-turn and because of the steering issue, my dad panicked and I panicked even more, and I banged the car into the divider. I think girls shouldn’t take their dads on their first ever drive.”

She burst into laughter and added: “I want to mention that post that accident, I never met with any accident, touchwood.”

Being a tall girl, Kriti enjoys the comfort and space that a SUV provides. She currently has an Audi Q7, but says she rarely gets to be in the driver’s seat.

“I needed a driver and a new car because after ‘Heropanti’, I started attending red carpet events and award functions where I was wearing designer clothes, and driving the car wearing those dresses, or stepping out of the car at the red carpets, appeared difficult.”(IANS)

  • Actress Ileana D’Cruz, who suffered depression and Body Dysmorphic Disorder, says at one point in her life she felt suicidal.
  • But once she accepted herself, she started feeling better.

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)

  • Due to the cold weather of Austria Salman Khan faces health problem while shooting Tiger Zinda Hai.

Tiger Zinda Hai starring Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif will be Released on 22 December 2017

Challenging weather conditions in Austria during the shoot of “Tiger Zinda Hai” led to a health issue for actor Salman Khan, says director Ali Abbas Zafar.

Talking about shooting for the film in the locales of Austria, Zafar said in a statement: “What we see onscreen might look a lot easier than it actually is. Sometimes, sequences like the ones shot in Austria can be difficult to achieve.

“For a significant chapter in ‘Tiger Zinda Hai’, we had to film in a place that had a certain amount of aloofness and isolation. We found that spot in the mountains of Austria, a place where time seemed to stand still and frozen.

“Shooting here meant dealing with unexpected situations. Literally, a lot of pain had gone behind this sequence. Salman developed a health issue, but he still trained to film here and delivered on a tough action sequence.”

The team shot a song there.

“We had expertise on our side since we worked with an international crew that has worked on the latest James Bond film ‘Spectre’. In the end, as a team, we are fairly satisfied that we managed to film here successfully,” he added.

“Tiger Zinda Hai”, which also stars Katrina Kaif, is a sequel to “Ek Tha Tiger”. It is slated to release on December 22 and has been shot across five countries. (IANS)
