Miles to go: Anushka Sharma on her journey

New Delhi, Oct 5 : After stepping into Bollywood in 2008 with superstar Shah Rukh Khan-starrer “Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi” to producing films and now owning a clothing line, actress Anushka Sharma has been on a roll. She says she has more ambitions to fulfil and hopes to develop her business ventures with a vengeance.

Anushka ventured into film production in 2014 and earlier this month, she launched her clothing line Nush.


“I feel happy with what I have achieved so far, but I have miles to go and more ambitions. I hope to develop my entrepreneurial ventures further,” Anushka told IANS over email from Mumbai, when asked about her career graph.

She says she wants to continue entertaining her fans.

“I want to continue working in roles and films that entertain, engage and are viewed in posterity as creatively qualitative. I haven’t achieved it all, there’s more to do in the years to come,” added the actress, who had her first modelling assignment for designer Wendell Rodricks in 2007.

The “NH10” actress, 29, who has worked with Bollywood’s three Khans — Shah Rukh, Salman and Aamir, says rather than looking back at her journey and contemplate, she prefers to use the learning to do better.

“I prefer to take learnings and acquired understanding from my years in the film industry. Experience teaches you patience, consistency and persistence. I hope these will always define my work,” she said.

What has been more daunting — being an actress, producer or an entrepreneur?

“None of it is daunting, all of it is very enjoyable and exciting. I love doing all of it, and wish there was time to do even more,” she said.

Anushka describes her clothing line Nush as “accessible high street fashion”. She says she wanted to create “everyday clothes for everyday events” and that it is “built around Indian needs and sensibilities”.

The line caters to all sizes from small to XXL.

“It caters to women and girls from all age groups and also to all senses of styles,” she said.

“We have been working on creating an apparel line for over a year’s time. Now that we are confident about the product and our distribution across India, we have decided to go ahead and launch it,” she said.

On the film front, Anushka’s next is “Pari” and she says the role was challenging.

“Let’s just say the role challenged me and the film will hold up what we aim to do at Clean Slate Films — tell solid, engaging stories on cinema,” she added.

She will also be seen with actor Varun Dhawan in the upcoming film “Sui Dhaaga – Made in India”, touted as a story of self reliance aimed to connect with every Indian.

“It’s very early to talk about ‘Sui Dhaaga’, but I am excited about the film, and look forward to shooting it.”

To be directed by Sharat Katariya and written by Maneesh Sharma, the film will go on the floors from January next year. The film will hit the screens for Gandhi Jayanti 2018.(Interview Conducted By Durga Chakravarty of IANS)

Upcoming medical colleges in Uttar Pradesh will be named after saints and sages

The new medical colleges being opened in Uttar Pradesh will be named after saints and sages.

The state government has issued an order naming four district hospitals that are being converted into medical colleges.

These district hospitals are in Bijnor, Fatehpur, Chandauli, and Siddharth Nagar.

The Bijnor medical college has been named after Mahatma Vidur, a philosopher during the Mahabharata era and uncle of the Pandavas and Kauravas.

The Chandauli medical college has been named after Baba Keenaram, said to be the founder of the Aghori sect.

The Siddharth Nagar district hospital will be called Madhav Prasad Tripathi Medical College after the BJP politician from the region. Tripathi, popularly known as Madhav Babu, was also the first Uttar Pradesh BJP chief. He was elected MP from Domariyaganj in 1977, besides being two times Jan Sangh MLA and also a member of the UP legislative council.

The Fatehpur hospital has been named Amar Shaheed Jodha Singh Ataiya Thakur Dariyawn Singh Medical College, after the freedom fighter of 1857.

It is said that he was among the first to use Guerrilla warfare against the British, as taught by freedom fighter Tatya Tope.

Meanwhile, according to official sources, the medical college in Deoria will be named after Maharishi Devraha Baba and the medical college of Ghazipur in the name of Maharishi Vishwamitra.

The medical college of Mirzapur will be in the name of Maa Vindhyavasini, the medical college of Pratapgarh in the name of Dr. Sonelal Patel and the medical college of Etah will be named after Veerangana Avantibai Lodhi. (IANS/JB)

Former Pakistan captain Inzamam-ul-Haq has picked India as the favourite to win the ongoing ICC Men's T20 World Cup in Oman and United Arab Emirates (UAE).

Inzamam feels that the Virat Kohli-led India have a greater chance of winning the trophy as the conditions in the Gulf nations are similar to the subcontinent, which makes India the most dangerous side in the event, according to Inzamam.

"In any tournament, it cannot be said for certain that a particular team will win' It's all about how much chance do they have of winning it. In my opinion, India have a greater chance than any other team of winning this tournament, especially in conditions like these. They have experienced T20 players as well," said Inzamam on his YouTube channel.

He said more than the Indian batters, the bowlers have a lot of experience of playing in the conditions. The Indian Premier League (IPL) was played recently in UAE and most of the Indian bowlers did well in that leg.

Inzy heaped praises on the Men in Blue for the confident manner in which they chased the target against Australia on a challenging track without needing Kohli's batting prowess.

"India played their warm-up fixture against Australia rather comfortably. On subcontinent pitches like these, India are the most dangerous T20 side in the world. Even today, if we see the 155 runs they chased down, they did not even need Virat Kohli to do so," he added.

Though he did not pick any favourite, Inzamam termed the India-Pakistan clash in the Super 12 on October 24 as the 'final before the final' and said the team winning it will go into the remaining matches high on morale,

"The match between India and Pakistan in the Super 12s is the final before the final. No match will be hyped as much as this one. Even in the 2017 Champions Trophy, India and Pakistan started and finished the tournament by facing each other, and both the matches felt like finals. The team winning that match will have their morale boosted and will also have 50 percent of pressure released from them," Inzamam added. (IANS/JB)

Moisturising the body in the morning sets your skin up to face countless irritants and environmental factors during the day. The skin is constantly exposed to harsh chemicals and pollutants when you're outside which is why using a protective and soothing moisturiser while going out is necessary. Kimirica's Five Elements Body Lotion comes with natural Aloe Vera extracts that act as a rich source of antioxidants and vitamins that helps protect your skin and provide a deep nourishing effect.
