Pavan Malhotra says many heroes have never given a hit ‘but are still stars’

Shiksha Mandal is the latest film to focus on school fraud in India, following SonyLiv’s Whisteblower and Lionsgate Play’s Jugaadistan. Additionally, there is the 2019 movie Setters, which even has Pavan in a significant role. It’s safe to say that there are plenty of stories about this subject. However, Pavan thinks there is still room for alternative interpretations. He comments, “Almost 3–4 years earlier, I had done a film on the same subject and we couldn’t present the tale effectively,” when alluding to Setters. But I really believed that this issue needed to be clearly communicated to the public. I might have assumed that I had already done this when it first occurred to me.

Although the actor has worked in the business for more than three decades, he claims that occasionally he still experiences moments of anxiety, one of which occurred on the Shiksha Mandal set. In the programme, Pavan performs the role of Madhya Pra-based criminal mastermind Dhanshu Yadav. On this episode, I had a problem with the accent and I felt I wasn’t able to give my 100%, Pavan recalls his difficulties with the dialogue. Although the dialect coach and the director said it was fine, I was worried about how it would come across. I threw in the towel after two days and said, “Let’s get this done quickly.” However, I believed that being afraid is preferable to being overconfident.

The anecdote, according to Pavan, is significant because it discusses how “undeserving people” often replace those who are more brilliant or deserving. This naturally leads to the discussion of nepotism in the entertainment sector. The actor claims that Bollywood too has similar issue. It occurs in all professions, and nepotism is not necessarily to blame. The other person frequently exhibits poor judgement. Sometimes a producer decides to pick this star over another actor because they believe he is “saleable.” Additionally, everyone has a journey and a destiny in movies, making it difficult to determine why one character is picked over another, according to him.

Over the course of a 35-year career, Pavan has been in a number of films and television programmes, but has mainly avoided repetition. He explains his technique, saying, “I learned to say no. If I was offered similar positions or work that I didn’t like, I said no to it, even if it meant taking a break for six months to a year. Of course, you must pay your expenses at some point, and if there is a significant gap, you will attempt to make the best decision. You must follow your passions in order to earn enough money to maintain your respect and dignity.

However, he rejects the idea of typecasting, contending that each job is unique. The actor cites one of the many Sikh personalities he has portrayed by saying, “Even gangster or negative characters are different. For instance, even though I’ve played a Sardar several times, each time I did so, the character was substantially different. Do you believe Tabbar and Bhaag Milkha Bhaag’s characters were similar? They are extremely dissimilar individuals. They are not interchangeable just because they both have beards and turbans.

Although he has garnered praise and accolades, including a National Award, traditional celebrity has escaped him; yet, Pavan isn’t complaining. The 64-year-old actor, when discussing the idea of celebrity in Bollywood, states that there are certain actors who haven’t delivered a single hit as a hero but have cultivated the impression that they are stars through the media. Unless someone has given one hit in 25 films, their flicks wash out at 12 o’clock. However, due to the perception they have fostered, they continue to be stars.

He continues by saying that his idea is to act and be sincere without caring about the consequence or the result. I try to refrain from using the same gestures and etiquette. Every director wants you to repeat a gesture you make or a certain body language you adopt that gets popular. However, I don’t want to repeat it. I’ll let it go. Your words and demeanour must adapt to the character. The best actors are those who are impossible to imitate. But the issue is that you won’t become a star without a distinctive personal style. Nothing sticks with the public, so an actor who cannot be imitated won’t become a star, he laughs.

Shiksha Mandal, which was directed by Syed Ahmed Afzal and features Gauahar Khan and Gulshan Devaiah, says it was “inspired by genuine events surrounding the biggest education scam in India.” On MXPlayer, the programme will start streaming on September 15.

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.
