Naseeruddin Shah, who saw Manthan at Cannes nearly 50 years after its premiere, “could hardly hold back tears.”

Nearly 50 years after its premiere, actor Naseeruddin Shah talked about being a part of the 77th Cannes Film Festival screening of his 1976 film Manthan. The actor described it as a “terribly emotional experience” in an interview with Brut India. In addition, he declared that he had never felt more proud of this movie. In addition, Naseeruddin claimed that walking the red carpet and taking part in the film festival seemed surreal to him.”

Naseeruddin recalls Amrish Puri, Girish Karnad, and Smita Patil.

Naseeruddin remarked, “It didn’t seem real.” I’ve always seen the red carpet event on film or in pictures. I’ve witnessed these stunning women strutting around in their exquisite clothes. I had no idea that one day I would be involved in it. So my wife and I tried to make things as easy as we could. It was also, naturally, an extremely emotional event. because a large number of pals were in the movie. Girish was my instructor and a buddy. He oversaw FTII as its director. Amrish and Smita were close friends. They are all no longer present.”

Naseeruddin found it difficult to control his tears.

“So many faces which one had sort of slipped one’s memory,” he said. To see everyone once more who was taken into the facility, nearly everyone who used to be there… I had never felt more proud of a movie than I did at that moment. This movie has always held a special place in my heart. I was so moved by the event that I found it difficult to control my emotions. Furthermore, I think the movie has endured the test of time rather well.”

Concerning Manthan

Shyam Benegal’s Manthan was influenced by Verghese Kurien’s groundbreaking milk cooperative initiative. It takes place against the backdrop of India’s White Revolution. Thank you to all 500,000 farmers who contributed ₹2 apiece to the film’s crowdfunder. Apart from Naseeruddin, other actors who appeared in the movie were Girish Karnad, Amrish Puri, Mohan Agashe, Kulbhushan Kharbanda, Smita Patil, and Anant Nag.

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.
