Actor Pankaj Jha from Panchayat describes Anurag Kashyap as “timid and spineless” for betraying his word in Gangs of Wasseypur.

In an interview , Pankaj Jha, who portrayed the cunning Vidhayak Ji in TVF’s Panchayat series, disclosed that he was first considered for the Sultan Qureshi part in Gangs of Wasseypur but lost out to Pankaj Tripathi. Critics and viewers alike have praised Anurag Kashyap’s direction work, Gangs of Wasseypur, which is regarded as one of his best works.

“Violated his pledge”
One of the main characters in Gangs of Wasseypur was Sultan Qureshi. Pankaj Jha was the first pick, though. Afterwards, Pankaj Tripathi was cast, though. Formerly, Jha and Anurag Kashyap worked together on Gulaal and Black Friday, but they parted ways for Gangs of Wasseypur. The 47-year-old actor elaborated on the situation by saying that he received the offer while in Patna for a shoot. He assured Kashyap that he would return in two days and that he would do the part. However, Pankaj Tripathi had already been cast as Sultan by the time he returned.

If Jha was harmed by the filmy politics, the hosts questioned. The Black Friday star declared that he didn’t care about the politics going on behind his back and that the “backstabbers” would prevail if he allowed them to harm him. Once more, the hosts questioned him about if landing Sultan’s role would have changed the course of his career because it made Pankaj Tripathi more well-known. Jha, however, claimed he was content and didn’t want to look back.

“Actor who directs”
Pankaj described himself as an actor who directs. “As much as Satya and Gulaal develop actors, they also develop directors,” he remarked. But they can’t even honour their word because there are so many cowardly and feckless people here. He went on to say that he was no longer resentful of Anurag Kashyap. “But even so, I still adore Anurag and have no grudges against anyone.”

Former student of the National School of Drama (NSD) Pankaj Jha gained notoriety for his portrayal of Vidhayak Chandrakishore Singh in the sitcom Panchayat. In Mira Nair’s 2001 film Monsoon Wedding, he played his debut role. In addition, he starred in the films Anwar (2007), Hazaaron Khwaishein Aisi (2003), Matrubhoomi (2003), and Company (2002).

Jha recently charged Tripathi with stealing “another actor’s slippers” and glamorising his struggles.

Dolly Singh on her “love-hate” relation with her physical appearance

Actress and content producer Dolly Singh recently talked about her weight swings and image worries in an Instagram post. She has since acknowledged that she is still working on accepting her body as it is and that there are still days when she stays away from others in order to avoid hearing criticism of her fluctuations in weight.

Dolly revealed in an Instagram post how people make fun of her weight. Her house is not one of the few individuals or places, she claimed, where she feels safe enough to be herself.

Relationship between hate and love
“Like everybody else, I’ve had a journey with my body of accepting it, not accepting it, Hating it and loving it and all of that,” she says when explaining why she decided to share the picture. I believe that I was just thinking about something when I decided to post about it at this particular moment. I recently lost a lot of weight, which is very normal for me because I usually gain less weight than I lose. Of course, this also brings scrutiny because my weight fluctuates like everyone else’s, and I suddenly realised that I was avoiding some people because I felt that my new weight or appearance will not invite great things from them or they will not be welcoming it maybe, wonder how safe space in the scenario is so important, it’s only a few people in your life that really let you be and enjoy and don’t make everything about how you look and your weight and everything else so I felt sad”. 

I felt certain that many others would be in a similar situation, therefore it was also something I wanted to discuss. “I decided to share it through my Instagram post,” the actor continued. Thank You For Coming is his most recent Bollywood blockbuster.

Continuous journey
Dolly, who rose to stardom on social media, acknowledges that she is still working on coming to terms with her physical appearance.

It has been a long journey, similar to every woman’s, she recalls. “It took me many years to really come to terms with the way I am, accept it if not love it,” she says. “Obviously, as a kid, you don’t really know, and then suddenly you’re very aware of how you look and how people perceive you and that you don’t meet the beauty standards.”

If I’m being absolutely honest, I believe that my true sense of contentment with my identity and appearance didn’t exist until I was around 25 or 26. Although the majority of days are wonderful, there are still bad ones. I think social media has definitely helped me a lot, she adds. “And honestly, I actually owe it to people on the Internet who follow me and say nice things because it has given me such a confidence boost and people who constantly put out such body positive content,” she says.

Not a simple procedure
In this passage, Dolly acknowledges that her journey towards self-acceptance has not been easy.

When asked about her greatest struggle, she responds, “I think the hardest part is to keep doing it and keep reminding yourself that what you have is great and of course you can be fitter and whatever your goal maybe, but that doesn’t mean that what you have right now, the body that is providing for you, is doing any less, or you should be hating it.” She also says that she has had to constantly pick herself up from pieces because it’s not like once you start loving yourself there are no bad days.

“Even though others may say otherwise, I think it’s difficult to constantly remind yourself that that’s not how it is,” she adds. “Because sometimes I try to look at my body as a friend and that’s when I start feeling bad for how I treat it sometimes or how I say mean things to it sometimes.”

When you ask her if she feels totally at ease with your body right now, Dolly says, “It’s a journey..And while it might be a rollercoaster, I believe that as we get older and wiser, navigating the changing ways our bodies and skin look has become simpler, but the journey never ends.
