Special for the International Day of Yoga: Kranti Prakash Jha says, “Yoga has been an anchor in my life.”

Actors frequently try to imbibe the attributes and skillset that the role requires in order to get into character. It takes a lot of preparation, from practising martial arts to learning a unique dance form. However, there are some learned skills that you can keep. And that’s exactly what occurred to actor Kranti Prakash Jha in a 2018 series in which he played yoga teacher Swami Ramdev. Since then, the actor has incorporated yoga into his films MS Dhoni: The Untold Story (2016) and Batla House (2019).

“I’ve picked up a number of talents from the roles I’ve played over the years, including horseback riding, sword fighting, and gymnastics, but yoga is one that has stuck with me.” When I was cast as Swami Ramdev in a biopic four years ago, I began practising yoga. The producers wanted me to do some basic yoga before the filming, so I was dispatched to meet swami ji. I picked up a few pointers from him. On World Yoga Day, he tells us, “I started doing yoga then and continue to practise it every single day,” adding, “Yoga has served the function of an anchor in my life.” I’ve been a fitness fanatic since I was a kid, and yoga has really helped me stay in shape.”

“Yoga is all about patience, balance, and mental control,” the Raktanchal actor believes. It won’t offer you results in a matter of days, but it will undoubtedly prepare your mind for larger life goals.” Every day at 7 a.m., he begins his yoga regimen. “I aim to hold each stretch for at least a minute and concentrate on my breathing while doing so.” Mayurasana, Shirshasana, Sarvangasana, Bakasana, and Bhujangasana are among Jha’s favourite asanas, as are Mayurasana, Shirshasana, Sarvangasana, Bakasana, and Bhujangasana.

Cannes 2024: All We Imagine As Light by Payal Kapadia creates history and receives an eight-minute standing ovation

At its world premiere on Thursday at the film festival, Payal Kapadia’s All We Imagine As Light—the first Indian film in the Cannes competition in thirty years—made quite a stir and impressed viewers around the globe.

The film received one of the longest standing ovations of this year’s film festival, lasting eight minutes, after its premiere.

All We Imagine As Light dominating critics
The picture scripted history at the festival and puts Payal in the running for the coveted Palme d’Or. In addition to being the first Indian production in the competition in thirty years, Deadline claims that Payal is the first female Indian director to have a film screened in the Cannes competition.

“India produces a great deal of excellent films. Not only does each state have its own film industry, led by incredibly talented directors, but not only Bollywood. Payal expressed her excitement and happiness that her picture was chosen to Deadline. “I hope that after this we won’t have to wait another 30 years,” she said. We weren’t prepared for it, and it’s an honour because there are so many directors in the category who I find truly inspiring.

This year, Payal faces off against Jacques Audiard, Yorgos Lanthimos, Paul Schrader, David Cronenberg, and Jia Zhangke.

Dancing their path to success
The movie’s cast and crew were beaming on the red carpet prior to leaving for the premiere.

On the Palais stairs, the entire team exuded joy and even danced their way up to the theatre. On the red carpet, the cast was all smiles, making a lot of funny poses and grabbing everyone’s attention.

Kani Kusruti, Divya Prabha, Chhaya Kadam, and Hridhu Haroon are among the actors in the movie.

Payal feels honoured that she has the opportunity to create history at the film festival and demonstrate to the world that Indian cinema is much more diverse than Bollywood.

preliminary evaluations
After the screening, the movie is receiving excellent reviews. According to Sophie Monk-Kaufman of IndieWire, “This casual everyday vignette is brimming with a sensuality (the rain, the clothes, the food, the women) that people don’t tend to notice when caught up in the rhythm of life,” the film is “gorgeous and absorbing,” according to one review. Realising just how complete these moments are requires a snapshot taken by an outside photographer.

Variety referred to it as a “glowing portrait of urban connection and unexpected sisterhood,” while The Guardian described it as a “dreamlike and gentle modern Mumbai tale that is a triumph.”

At that point, the two women make the decision to drive to a beach resort where they can freely pursue their aspirations.

Payal makes her feature debut in the movie. A Night of Knowing Nothing, the documentary she did before, won the Golden Eye prize at the Cannes film festival a few years ago.
