  •  Actor Rajkummar Rao, who injured his leg last month, says everything is on track now and he will soon be “back in action”.

Rajkummar Rao’s another film is set to release soon

“I’ve lost three days when I was in the hospital otherwise everything is on track. I have been dubbing and also promoting ‘Shaadi Mein Zaroor Aana’. The only unfortunate part is that we had to push the shooting of ‘Fanney Khan’. I feel bad for my team and producers Kriarj, ROMP and T-Series, but they have been so supportive and wonderful to me. I’ll be back in action…four to five weeks max,” he said.

The “Trapped” actor considers 2017 to be “certainly one of the best years of my career but I never planned it like this”.

“I was just shooting for all these films last year and this year and they all released. It was just a coincidence. But no complains. I feel very blessed that I’m part of all these wonderful films. I know not every year is going to be the same but I’ll try and keep doing different films and push myself with every film,” said the “Newton” star.

His another film is set to release soon.

“Yes, ‘Shaadi Mein Zaroor Aana’ is a very sweet romantic drama. It’s a first for me in this genre, but I had a really good time shooting for it. We had a great team and a really wonderful script. It gave me a lot of scope to perform as an actor because there are two different personality traits of my character in it,” said Rajkummar Rao.

It looks like another small town romance-comedy like “Bareilly Ki Barfi”. Isn’t that becoming a bit of a problem?

“‘Shaadi…’ is set in a small town, but it’s not our usual small town rom-coms. As an actor, I try to keep it as versatile as possible…I feel the small town rom-com has a charm and you can find so many characters in them that it’s fun to explore. Even if it’s a formula also, it’s a sweet formula to experiment with,” he said.

His other film “Omerta” has been received well at film festivals.

“‘Omerta’ is a very powerful film I feel. As an actor, it took a toll on my mental health. It wasn’t an easy character to portray, but Hansal (Mehta) sir pushed me to my limits.

“We made this film with a lot of honesty and passion, and it’s an antagonist story so that way it was a first for us. It feels great when audiences like our effort and can see the honesty in our films. Toronto, MAMI and Busan are all major festivals and I am really happy that we had such an overwhelming response,” he said.

How does he manage to be so effective in spite of doing so much work?

“I wish I knew if am effective or not. I always feel very nervous before starting any new film and probably it’s this fear only that pushes me to work harder every time. I try and live all my characters sincerely and try and make them believable,” he said.(IANS)

Cycling, Walking Likely To Develop Better Mental Health

People who commute — walking or cycling — through natural environments are more likely to develop better mental health than those who commute less, according to a new study.

Natural environments included all public and private outdoor spaces that contain ‘green’ and/or ‘blue’ natural elements such as street trees, forests, city parks and natural parks/reserves and all types of water bodies.

“Mental health and physical inactivity are two of the main public health problems associated with the life in urban environments. Urban design could be a powerful tool to confront these challenges and create healthier cities. One way of doing so would be investing in natural commuting routes for cycling and walking,” said Mark Nieuwenhuijsen from the University of Barcelona.

For the study, published in the journal, Environment International, the research team examined nearly 3,600 participants who answered a questionnaire about their commuting habits and their mental health.

The findings showed that respondents commuting through natural environments on a daily basis had on average a 2.74 point higher mental health score compared to those who commuted through natural environments less frequently.

This association was even stronger among people who reported active commuting, the team said.

“From previous experimental studies we knew that physical activity in natural environments can reduce stress, improve mood and mental restoration when compared to the equivalent activity in urban environments,” said first author Wilma Zijlema from the varsity.

“Although this study is the first of its kind to our knowledge and, therefore, more research will be needed, our data show that commuting through these natural spaces alone may also have a positive effect on mental health.” (IANS)
