With the success of the second season of Mismatched, leading lady Prajakta Koli is not only looking forward for the third season of the show but she will also be a part of Bollywood films. Readers would be aware that YouTube content creator turned actress made her debut with Dharma Productions in the family drama Jugjugg Jeeyo which features her marriage against its backdrop. During the interview in the show Social Media Star with Janice, the actress recalled the time when she kicked off her debut film and revealed her experience to co-guest Rajkummar Rao who is currently shooting for the Dharma film Mr. and Mrs. Mahi . In the last season of this show, Prajakta Koli had come along with Jugjugg Jeeyo producer Karan Johar. When the host reminded her of how she didnt speak much in front of KJo, Prajakta added, I was very nervous to shoot even that episode with Karan. Thats when the host added how Karan Johar gave away his Gucci ring to her. This left her co-guest Rajkummar Rao quite surprised and Prajakta added, All I had to do was to tell him how much I loved the ring. Adding his quirky twist to it, Rajkummar added, Meri ring nahi. Woh nahi de sakta, yeh shaadi wali ring hai. (Dont eye my ring. I cant give it to you because its my wedding ring). In the same show, the actress also added about how she was nervous about shooting JugJugg Jeeyo and felt that the entire set will be filled with hoity-toity people around. She added, When I was packing for Chandigarh to shoot, I remember crying that I have nothing worth wearing on a Dharma set. But when I reached there, it was nothing like that. People were so warm. JugJugg Jeeyo featured Varun Dhawan, Kiara Advani, Anil Kapoor, and Neetu Kapoor in lead roles. Prajakta Koli played a bride-to-be, who is the sister of Varun and daughter of Anil and Neetu in the film.

Even after winning Himachal, Congress's 'fear' continues, efforts to hide MLAs begin!

Shimla: It has been confirmed that Congress will form the government in Himachal Pradesh. For this, instructions have been given to all the MLAs to come to the Congress office immediately after the victory. From there, preparations are on to take them to Chandigarh. According to sources, Congress may take all its MLAs who won the elections out of the state, so that they can be kept away from contact with BJP leaders. It is believed that Congress may hide its MLAs in Chhattisgarh or Rajasthan. According to sources, the Mayfair resort in Raipur has also been booked. However, till now nothing has been clarified about it. If party sources are to be believed, the high command has appointed Chhattisgarh Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel and former Haryana CM Bhupinder Singh Hooda as observers for Himachal Pradesh. Both the leaders are going to Shimla along with Himachal Congress in-charge Rajeev Shukla. Congress National General Secretary Vikramaditya Singh said that BJP is a messed up party, but we have learned a lot from our mistakes. Pratibha Singh is the CM face. Before this, there will be a discussion in the Legislature Party. The final decision will be of the party's high command. Chhattisgarh CM Bhupesh Baghel on the question of bringing newly elected Himachal MLAs to Raipur said that he will not bring them here, but will definitely keep his colleagues safe because BJP can do anything. It is being told that CM Baghel can also go to Shimla today to meet the victorious Congress MLAs and give them instructions.

Congress got 'majority' in Himachal trends, will it be able to form the govt?

Shimla: Counting of votes for the Himachal Pradesh Assembly elections is underway and initial trends show a tough contest. According to the latest trends, Congress is leading in 40 seats, while the BJP is leading in 25 seats. In the 68-member Himachal Assembly, the majority mark is 35 and in case the contest is tight, the politics of manipulation can start. In such a situation, Congress has activated its strategists. Chhattisgarh Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel and former Haryana CM Bhupinder Singh Hooda have been roped in for crisis management. According to sources, the Congress MLAs may be kept in a hotel in Chandigarh or elsewhere. The Congress fears that if there is a gap of two or three seats, the BJP may try to break its MLAs. MlAs may be affected by the BJP being in power at the Centre. Along with this, there is also a tussle over the post of CM in Pratibha Singh and Sukhwinder Singh Sukhu. In such a situation, the BJP can take advantage of this and pursue them by luring some MLAs into the cabinet. This is the reason why Congress has already agreed to the results and is preparing a plan to save the MLAs. In Himachal Pradesh, there has traditionally been a fight between the BJP and the Congress, but this time the close contest between the BJP and the Congress seems to be trapped in the power match in Himachal. Around 76.44 percent voting was recorded in all the 68 assembly seats in the state on November 12, in which the political fate of 412 candidates was captured in EVMs. Of these, 388 are male and 24 are female candidates.

New Delhi: The results of the Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD Election) have been declared and Delhi's ruling Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) has registered a landslide victory in this election. Results for all 250 wards are out and AAP has won 134 wards. Meanwhile, Delhi's Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia has made serious allegations against the BJP. Sisodia has alleged that the BJP is trying to take their corporators, but this will not happen. Sisodia said that no corporator of 'AAP' will come under the temptation of the BJP. Sisodia said that the newly elected councilors have been instructed to record any such phone call they receive. Meanwhile, even after the election defeat, a BJP leader has said that the post of mayor is an open race and whoever has the numbers can choose their mayor. On the other hand, BJP IT cell chief Amit Malviya has said that the elected councilors will vote for the mayor's election and Chandigarh also has a BJP mayor. Although the Aam Aadmi Party became the largest party with 14 seats in the 35-seat Chandigarh Municipal Corporation, they could not elect their own mayor due to lack of a majority.

Himachal: Congress fears theft of MLAs, Bhupesh and Bhupindar engaged in siege

Shimla: The counting of votes for the Himachal Pradesh assembly elections is underway and the initial trends show a close contest. In the trends so far, the BJP is leading on 34 seats, while the Congress has taken a lead on 30 seats. Let us tell you that in the 68-seat Himachal Assembly, the majority mark is 35 and in the event of a tight contest, politics of manipulation may begin. In such a situation, the Congress has activated its strategists. Chhattisgarh Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel and former Haryana CM Bhupinder Singh Hooda have been deputed for crisis management. According to sources, the Congress MLAs may be kept in a hotel in Chandigarh or elsewhere. The Congress fears that if there is a difference of only two or three seats, the BJP may try to poach its MLAs. Being in power at the center, MLAs can be influenced by BJP. Along with this, there is a tussle between Pratibha Singh and Sukhwinder Singh Sukhu over the post of CM. Taking advantage of this, the BJP can break some MLAs by luring them into the cabinet. This is the reason why Congress is already scared of the results and is preparing a plan to save the MLAs. Congress's tussle can also be understood from the fact that Pratibha Singh has already staked a claim on the chief minister's post. She heads the state unit of the party and is the wife of Virbhadra Singh, the six-time CM of the state. Virbhadra has a huge mass base in the state. In such a situation, Pratibha is also claiming in the name of hislegacy. Let us inform you that out of 68 seats in Himachal Vidhansabha, BJP won 44 seats in 2017. This time also the BJP has claimed victory and has spoken of ending the tradition of change of power. At the same time, Congress has said that the tradition of changing the rule will continue.

With 4 FLOPS in a row, what is going wrong with Ayushmann Khurranas films? Experts speak

Ayushmann Khurrana struck gold with his very first film in the form of Shoojit Sircars Vicky Donor . Despite the not-so-family-friendly subject of a sperm donor, the film worked at the box office. After some struggle following his debut success, the actor created a niche for himself through a series of successful films like Bareilly Ki Barfi , Shubh Mangal Savdhan , Andhadhun , Badhaai Ho , Article 15 and Dream Girl . With such consistent success, Ayushmann became one of the most bankable stars. However, after the resumption of movie theatres at the end of 2021, he has had four theatrical releases Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui , Anek , Doctor G and the recent one An Action Hero and all of them have failed at the box office. What exactly is going wrong with Ayushmanns films? Why one of the safest box office stars is going through such a phase? Veteran trade analyst Taran Adarsh said that generally this happens when a star keeps doing the same type of films. But when it comes to Ayushmann Khurrana, thats not the case at all, he said. The story of his one film is completely different than the other. Even his earlier films are diametrically opposite in terms of the genre. Similarly, his Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui , Anek , Doctor G and An Action Hero are very different from each other. Adarsh finds two reasons for Ayushmanns change of fate. Firstly, a big chunk of the audience that was following him has started liking those films on OTT. The subjects are all right. But more on the experimental side is suited more for OTT nowadays, he said. Also he has had four releases in a span of a year. I feel it should be controlled to two in a year. Four in a year can lead to fatigue. I remember Amitabh Bachchan used to have five or six films in a year and people were still hungry for more. But those days are gone. Today, less is more I guess. Veteran trade analyst Atul Mohan also believes that the OTT boom has affected Ayushmanns films. But he also feels that the actors bad period had started before the pandemic. I think it started with Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan which didnt do that well because of the theme, he said. And after that, because of the lockdown that went on for months, people got the exposure of different types of content from everywhere (on OTT). Then right after the lockdown his Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui was also not a family-friendly subject. It is also said that lack of proper promotions and publicity is also affecting Ayushmanns films with An Action Hero being a major example of the same. Atul Mohan said that in todays times, producers are forced to have a theatrical release even if they know their film is suited more for OTT because of the terms put forth by the platforms. So, when a producer knows that his film isnt going to get much from the box office, he spends a limited amount for its theatrical release, he said. Senior trade analyst Amod Mehra is of the view that when on goes on experimenting, the chance of success is less. He is trying his level best to not be branded in any slot. Like Amitabh Bachchan as the Angry Young Man and Akshay Kumar in comedy and action. But this is also a reason for failure. Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui wasnt bad. But it had a different topic which was hard to digest and not for the family. But the film did exceptionally well on OTT. With Anek , I dont think the director was sure on what he is making. So, some films go as a bouncer. Thats the reason why his films are not doing as well as they should. However, exhibitor Akshaye Rathi is of the view that its not right to blame Ayushmann for the result of his recent films. I dont think its Ayushmann Khurranas films that are not working well. It could feature any actor. We have had an Ajay Devgn deliver Drishyam 2 after Runway 34 , which, despite the good reviews, didnt do the kind of business all of us expected out of it, he said. Rathi also believes that the industry is still trying to gauge the audience behaviour. We are as such learning what the audience is really trying to tell us in terms of their choices, preferences and demands for a theatrical experience, he said. As an industry, we will really catch up soon enough from the learnings over the last one year and soon start delivering big hits all over again with better consistency. Atul Mohan also feels that the makers should also be blamed for a film not doing well. Sometimes the film looks good on paper but then it falters in the execution. In such cases, the actor cant be blamed, he said. Mehra is also all praise for Ayushmann as an actor. In none of his films people have said that he is not good, he said. He has been continuously growing as an actor. He has also shown his capabilities of building his body. Ayushmann will next be seen in Dream Girl 2 , the second film in the franchise directed by Raaj Shaandilyaa.
