Hosting cricket shows, Karishma Kotak was terrified of “looking like a bimbo.”

Karishma Kotak, an actor and model who frequently hosted pre-match shows at cricket competitions, has spoken out about how it has been for women at such events. Karishma recalled that when she first began hosting, the goal was for women to dress glamorously and ask a few questions. ‘I was very paranoid that I shouldn’t look like a bimbo,’ Karishma continued.

In 2012, Karishma competed as a contestant on season 6 of the reality series Bigg Boss. She has hosted the television programme Extraaa Innings T20, which features a post-game analysis of the 2013 Indian Premier League. She presided over the 2019 Cricket World Cup as well.

“I feel that now it’s much better than when I started in 2011–12,” Karishma said in a statement to News18. But Mandira (Bedi) got going first. Prior to me, Shonali (Nagrani) started. So it seemed to me that a few women had kind of paved the way. It wasn’t unusual for another girl to be hired as an IPL host because they were already there, but I believe that initially the protocol was more along the lines of “Glamorous dikho, chaar sawal karo and nikal jaao” (Look glamorous, ask a few questions, and then leave). How does it feel to play alongside Dhoni? It used to be those simple questions, and I was terrified I should not appear to be a bimbo.

She continued, “I think stereotypes about women emerge quite quickly, and I think it happens even at work, where we have to put in extra effort to show that we’re more than just pretty faces. I sat down in the commentator’s box and listened to them commentate because that’s how you learn, so when I did feel that way a little bit, that’s when I did it. I know what I’m doing and I know what I’m saying. Because you’re sitting down and watching, you get the inside scoop because what you see as a commentator and what you see as an audience are two different things. I used to just listen, and I still do. I believe it is much better now.

Karishma is currently anticipating the debut of her Sam Bhattacharjee-produced movie IRaH. The artificial intelligence theme of the film, which also stars Rohit Roy, Ameet Chana, Fagun Thakrar, and Rajesh Sharma, is explored.

At an event, Rupali Ganguly touches an experienced journalist’s foot, to which the audience responds, “Success has not changed her.”

Actress Rupali Ganguly is gaining popularity online after a video of her from an event went viral. The Anupamaa actress appeared to present veteran journalist Chaitanya Padukone with an award at the Expandable Awards. She touched his feet after presenting him with the prize and introduced her on-screen persona to the audience.

Rupali wore a purple sari with shine to the occasion. She knelt down in the video and brushed the journalist’s feet, asking for his blessing. Chaitanya appeared overwhelmed in reaction. An account belonging to a paparazzi has uploaded the video.

“Rupali is extremely down to earth,” a user commented in response to it in the comment area. Success hasn’t altered her because she was raised by the fantastic director and all-around positive person Anil Ganguly, whose home she grew up in. I grew up watching all of his movies, so that is undoubtedly where it all begins. Another person said, “Ise bolte hain Asli Sanskaar (this is referred to as authentic culture)”

“That’s why Rupali mam is so successful and widely known, down to earth and never leave her root,” another person added. Rupali was referred to as “grace” by filmmaker Ram Kamal Mukherjee in the comments section.

Rupali began her acting career as a child performer and later achieved recognition as the lead in the television series Sarabhai vs. Sarabhai, in which Ratna Pathak Shah co-starred as Monisha Sarabhai. She later became a celebrity of television programmes like Baa Bahoo Aur Baby and Parvarrish – Kuchh Khattee Kuchh Meethi.

Currently, Rupali is portraying the Gujarati homemaker Anupamaa in the lead character of the television series Anupamaa. It is one of the most watched serials on Star Plus. Rupali recently shared her thoughts on the show in response to complaints from viewers regarding the length of her monologues.

She said, “Fans ki baatein sar aankhon par (I will always put my fans’ needs first)” to Pinkvilla. My creators are quite aware of the message they want to get across with Anupamaa. Regardless of what he (producer Rajan Shahi) has envisioned for Anupamaa to do, I shall strive to express it with all of my passion. I’ll give it my all and do it to the best of my skills.
