Marshawn Lynch Gift his Opponent in Green Bay's Locker Room

Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch and his former Cal teammate and current Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers quietly swapped jerseys after the NFC divisional playoff game on Sunday. After the Packers 28-23 win at Lambeau Field, Lynch walked into Green Bay’s locker room with a gift for his opponent and Rodgers gave his No. 12 jersey in return. Lynch signed his No. 24 jersey, hugged Rodgers and the two had a private conversation in a separate room after the swap.

The two stars were teammates at the University of California in 2004 and have remained friends and held respect for each other ever since.

The NFC Championship-bound quarterback had high praise for Beast Mode.

Rodgers said:

“He is one of my all-time favorite teammates, and I only had to play one year with him. But he has just an incredible personality and charisma, and he’s just so fun to be around … But I just have a ton of respect for him in his career. He’s one of those transcendent players that is so likable and so respected by so many people, and I’m just fortunate to have gotten to play with him for a year.”

In late December, Lynch decided to give it one more go with the Seahawks and came out of retirement to try and make a playoff run with his former team. The Seahawks fell short, and it could be the last time fans see Lynch in an NFL uniform, Seattle or otherwise, though in true Lynch fashion he did not give much insight to his future after the game.

With there being a decent chance that this was the last time Lynch and Rodgers will share a field for an NFL game, it was nice they were able to have a moment to catch up and reminisce on old times.

Rodgers spoke to their relationship and gave a little insight to what they discussed.

“So we were just catching up, talking about some silly stuff that happened back in the day and seeing where he’s at. He’s a lot of fun to be around, and it’s fun to see him,” Rodgers said.

Back in 2010, the two were nearly reunited on the same team when the Bills, who Lynch was playing for at the time, were discussing a potential trade with the Packers. The reunion never happened, but Rodgers still thinks about how great it would have been if it did. “There was, obviously, conversation years ago about picking him up in a trade that fell through that would’ve been a lot of fun to play some more years together,” he said.

Lynch had two touchdowns in the loss and after the game called his four touchdowns in three games “pretty solid.”

The veteran actor and one of the most loved romantic heroes of all times, Rishi Kapoor departed from this world a couple of days ago but the fans are still not able to believe that he is not with us now. The “Mulk” star was a very lively person and he used to rub his energy on everyone around him ensuring that all and sundry have a smile on their faces.

Rishi Kapoor debuted as a lead actor in 1973 and till 2000, he acted in around 92 movies in the lead role. He started playing character and negative roles after the year 2000 and kept on entertaining his fans. Rishi Kapoor and director Kunal Kohli worked together in three movies – “Hum Tum”, “Fanaa” and “Thoda Pyaar Thoda Magic” and they were pretty close to each other.

While talking to an entertainment portal, Kunal revealed that the “Karz” actor called him just before the lockdown was imposed and asked Kunal about what he was doing that time. Rishi Kapoor told the filmmaker that he wanted a big movie from him as the directors who are less talented than Kunal are making big flicks. He asked Kunal to make a comeback and prove to everybody that they are wrong about him.

Kunal was not able to stop his tears as he told that at first, he didn’t believe the news of Rishi Kapoor’s departure, then he called Manish Malhotra who confirmed the tragic news. Kunal said that he broke down after hearing it, adding that nothing will be same without Rishi Kapoor, whether its life, Bollywood or parties.  Kunal is of the opinion that Rishi Kapoor shouldn’t have gone in this manner as the whole country is under lockdown and the “Chandni” actor deserved a better farewell.

Kunal also recalled the Twitter chat that they both had and he told the veteran actor that nobody can play the Dafliwala better than him as he is the original one.

There is no denying the fact that Rishi Kapoor was an inspiration for many and he will always be missed. RIP!

The popular TV show Ramayan which is based on the life journey of Lord Ram is breaking all the records of viewership as it has been declared the most watched entertainment show globally. On 16th April 2020, it garnered 7.7 crores views which is pretty high in comparison to the highest viewership received by other shows including the American TV shows as well.

Actor Sunil Lahri who played the role of Lakshman in Ramanand Sagar’s Ramayan is very happy with the response that the show is getting. He said that many people are saying Doordarshan has been revived by Ramayan. Sunil recalled the old memories as he shared that the first thing that he can think of is the craziness of people for the serial and the characters. He told that people used to respect them by touching their feet whenever they see them at public places.

Sunil revealed that the response was not good in the beginning when Ramayan was telecasted in 1987, but after 6 or 7 episodes, people started getting mad for the serial. He feels that viewers got pretty strongly attracted towards the emotions of Ramayan and felt connected to it and even today, they are feeling the same.

Sunil Lahri further added that Ramayan did have a manufacturing date but it doesn’t have an expiry date and the response will be great even if it is re-run after 10-15 years. As per him, no matter how much modern we Indians get but we are still connected to our roots.

Talking about his personal choices, he said that he was not happy working in Ramayan in the initial stages because he lost many movies because of that. However, he admits that he is happy now as his work has been loved, respected and recognized today, more than the time when the show was telecasted for the first time.

In response to the question whether he got stereotyped, he said that though some similar roles were offered to him that he denied, he didn’t get stereotyped. He further said that in his younger days, his personality did not suit mythological roles so many people were surprised when he played the character of Lakshman very well. Sunil Lahri also revealed that he was working in few action, romantic and musical movies as well at that time but they flopped.

He also said that when he stopped getting good roles, he focused on production and advertising business so that he didn’t face survival issues. According to him, the industry people don’t care about the fact that how you are as an actor and what matters more for them is whether your movie worked on the box-office or not. In the end, he said that he will do only those roles which he feels he can justify.
