Vijay Shankar Says – No. 4, Try to Adjust to the Condition of England



Vijay Shankar Says - No. 4, Try to Adjust to the Condition of England

Team India’s young all-rounder Vijay Shankar was given an opportunity in the Indian team in the beginning of the year and on his excellent performance, he is an important part of the team selected for the Cricket World Cup to be held in England and Wales. Due to excellent batting, bowling and tremendous fielding, Indian team chief selector MS K Prasad has called Vijay a ‘three dimensional’ cricketer. Who can bat at number four. Who has the best combination of attack and defense and with his bowling can give the wicket a wicket on the important occasions. For the long time since the long run, the Indian team was looking for a promising player who could strengthen the team at the number four position.

In a special conversation with ‘Aajtak’, Vijay Shankar said that there has been a lot of talk about the number four slot and as a cricketer, we have to face all these things, believe in our own strength at such times The most important is that. We have to work on all aspects of the game. I am just trying to concentrate on my preparation and I am not thinking anything besides this. These things happen in life and I have learned to live with it.

From Melbourne to Mount Maunganui, this Chennai player did not get the chance to bat in the first three ODIs of his career. After this, he got the chance to bat at number six in the fifth and final ODI against New Zealand in Wellington. In which he played a brilliant 45 runs innings.

In the home series against Australia, he scored 120 runs in four innings. After this, the 12th edition of the IPL came, where Shankar scored 244 runs in 15 matches while playing for Hyderabad Sunrise. After this performance, started questioning the selection of Shankar in the World Cup team.

Vijay said that people, angry at selection in the World Cup team, should also keep in mind that during the IPL, I used to come for batting in the 13th or 14th over, then I only think about the interest of the team. Was there. Any batsman who hits the field for batting after the 12th over, he tries to score as many runs as possible for his team. This year’s IPL season was a different experience, playing in fourth and fifth place during the season, scored around 244 runs.

He said that I have ensured that after finishing the IPL, I have worked hard. Coach worked on his technique. At the fourth place, the batsman will have to try to negotiate with the condition of England more than his batsmen. Which is now more important than thinking about number four slots.

Even if the victory in the IPL has not been able to make so much impact with its bowling. However, its captain Kohli has full faith in his bowling which can play an important role for the team in England’s conditions.

He said that it is important for me to work on all facets of the game. Since the Australia series has ended, I have been working very well on my bowling. I used IPL for a good effect. In each practice session, I actually worked hard on my bowling. I can only work to keep myself ready and I should be prepared for getting the opportunity to do this for the team.

When there was a debate on four number slots in the cricket world and whenever he came to bat during the IPL, hashtag was trending on social media, it was his family and friends who focused on Shankar’s future work. Done

He said that being part of the World Cup team is definitely very special for any cricketer. Whenever we wear jerseys of India, it is very special for us. What has been good with me is that my family and friends never talked about it when I was at home during the last 8-10 days. They were very normal and whenever I am in Chennai, I always enjoy my time. I have been doing hard work for the past one week and because of this, it was very busy. Before this World Cup, it was quite simple for me.

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.

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!

“In Beginning, I Wasn’t Very Happy Doing Ramayan As I Lost Many Film Projects,” Says Sunil Lahri




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.
