Shabana Azmi was referred to as “stupid” by Shashi Kapoor for not performing an intimate scene with him. There is a healthy twist, though!

Shabana Azmi talked candidly about her collaboration with the late actor Shashi Kapoor. The seasoned actor said in an interview with Zoom that she had been a fan of his since she was nine years old and that, despite his initial being “mean,” he ultimately ended up being helpful to her. She remembered working with him in Fakira and referred to him as “crazy.” Shabana claimed that after she broke down in tears, Shashi reprimanded her for not wanting to film a private moment with him.

“My eyes were full of tears.”

Shabana remarked, “He expressed his affection in that way.” He was insane. I’ll give you an example: Dil Mein Tujhe Bithakar was the song we were filming for Fakira. I came on the scene ahead of him, and the choreography was being performed by Satyanarayan ji. The moves looked quite intimate to me. Tears filled my eyes, and I was so young at the time. My pulse was pounding as I left the stage because I truly didn’t want to take those pictures.

“I went in and told my hairdresser that I couldn’t do those shots, and I started crying,” the woman continued. I informed Shashi Kapoor that I couldn’t perform those sequences, but he was like, “What’s wrong with you?” and then, “Why, when you became an actress, didn’t you realise this when you told your mother you want to become an actress, stupid girl?” before leaving. Suddenly, there was a loud knocking at the door. I whispered to my hairstylist, “How mean is he?” as I glanced at him. Observe how he is conversing with me. When I returned to the set after thirty minutes, all of his movements had been altered. He was the type of person described above.”

Shabana on her admiration for Shashi Kapoor

The actor also mentioned how she’s been a fan of Shashi Kapoor since she was nine years old. Shabana mentioned that Prithviraj Kapoor was her “immediate neighbour” and that every Sunday while she was in school, he would visit his family at his home.

She claimed that every Sunday she would go seek Shashi’s autograph, having saved her pocket money to purchase a black-and-white picture of the actor. Shabana continued, saying that he is the only person whose signature she got on his picture. She continued, saying it was ‘absolutely inconceivable’ that she was paired opposite him in Hira Aur Patthar (1977).

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.
