According to Nimrat Kaur, both the film industry and society use a lot of age shaming

Age is a “quite jaded way” to view a person, according to Nimrat Kaur, whether you are a man or a woman. She acknowledged that reducing weight after her most recent movie, Dasvi, had been a “tough,” and she referred to ageism as “very antiquated and outmoded.”

After filming the movie Dasvi, actress Nimrat Kaur, who was recently seen in it, talked about her weight loss experience. She claimed that losing weight was difficult and uncomfortable. For her part in the movie, she had to gain 15 kg. Nimrat also discussed ageism, calling it a “very archaic and unfashionable” perspective on people. Nimrat Kaur claims that those in her immediate vicinity would make fun of her weight increase.

In a recent interview, Nimrat stated that she had difficulty reducing the weight she had put on for her Netflix movie, Dasvi, which also starred Yami Gautam and Abhishek Bachchan. Nimrat played the role of the chief minister in the comedy-drama that was released in April. The actor revealed that she eventually got hurt and was still recovering. She said that she still hadn’t been able to resume her “normal exercise routine.”

In an interview with The Times of India, Nimrat discussed her weight loss and said, “My weight loss journey after Dasvi was hard because I ended up hurting my calf muscle. I tore my calf; the condition is known as tennis leg and is quite painful. I needed around four months to recover. I’m still getting better. I learned to have patience during this lengthy procedure. I now have a great deal of respect for my body. I pay close attention to what it says and determine what it requires. I haven’t yet resumed my regular workout schedule. I’ve learned from this time to never take things for granted.

In the interview, Nimrat also addressed ageism and stated that she thought that it was “only a number.” There is a lot of age labelling all the time. You are either too young or too old to be doing that or that. Age is but a number, after all. The most vibrant, vivacious individuals I know are often perceived as being elderly, while some of the wisest individuals I know have a youthful spirit. Age is a pretty jaded way of viewing a person, whether it be a man or a woman. I firmly believe that ageism is outmoded and absolutely antiquated,” Nimrat stated.

Nimrat stated in an Instagram post from earlier in May that those close to her made jokes about her recent weight gain and lacked “basic politeness.” Before Dasvi, Nimrat appeared as an ISI agent in the eighth season of the well-known US TV series Homeland.

Cannes 2024: All We Imagine As Light by Payal Kapadia creates history and receives an eight-minute standing ovation

At its world premiere on Thursday at the film festival, Payal Kapadia’s All We Imagine As Light—the first Indian film in the Cannes competition in thirty years—made quite a stir and impressed viewers around the globe.

The film received one of the longest standing ovations of this year’s film festival, lasting eight minutes, after its premiere.

All We Imagine As Light dominating critics
The picture scripted history at the festival and puts Payal in the running for the coveted Palme d’Or. In addition to being the first Indian production in the competition in thirty years, Deadline claims that Payal is the first female Indian director to have a film screened in the Cannes competition.

“India produces a great deal of excellent films. Not only does each state have its own film industry, led by incredibly talented directors, but not only Bollywood. Payal expressed her excitement and happiness that her picture was chosen to Deadline. “I hope that after this we won’t have to wait another 30 years,” she said. We weren’t prepared for it, and it’s an honour because there are so many directors in the category who I find truly inspiring.

This year, Payal faces off against Jacques Audiard, Yorgos Lanthimos, Paul Schrader, David Cronenberg, and Jia Zhangke.

Dancing their path to success
The movie’s cast and crew were beaming on the red carpet prior to leaving for the premiere.

On the Palais stairs, the entire team exuded joy and even danced their way up to the theatre. On the red carpet, the cast was all smiles, making a lot of funny poses and grabbing everyone’s attention.

Kani Kusruti, Divya Prabha, Chhaya Kadam, and Hridhu Haroon are among the actors in the movie.

Payal feels honoured that she has the opportunity to create history at the film festival and demonstrate to the world that Indian cinema is much more diverse than Bollywood.

preliminary evaluations
After the screening, the movie is receiving excellent reviews. According to Sophie Monk-Kaufman of IndieWire, “This casual everyday vignette is brimming with a sensuality (the rain, the clothes, the food, the women) that people don’t tend to notice when caught up in the rhythm of life,” the film is “gorgeous and absorbing,” according to one review. Realising just how complete these moments are requires a snapshot taken by an outside photographer.

Variety referred to it as a “glowing portrait of urban connection and unexpected sisterhood,” while The Guardian described it as a “dreamlike and gentle modern Mumbai tale that is a triumph.”

At that point, the two women make the decision to drive to a beach resort where they can freely pursue their aspirations.

Payal makes her feature debut in the movie. A Night of Knowing Nothing, the documentary she did before, won the Golden Eye prize at the Cannes film festival a few years ago.
