Nakuul Mehta, who plays Shivaay Singh Oberoi in Star Plus’s soap Ishqbaaz, appears to be one of those rare actors with a golden heart.
Today he is helping a 38-year-old woodcutter from Kerala, Anil Kumar, to achieve his dream. In this he is aided by lifestyle T-shirt brand, Moochawala and crowd-funding platform Fueladream.com through the #BhaagAnilBhaag campaign. Coming from humble beginnings which started from the small town of Palakkad in Kerala, Anil dreams of taking part in the Asian Masters Athletic Championships on September 2017 in China in September 2017 and has been selected to represent India multiple times, but needs to raise Rs.77,000 to be able to go to China. The #BhaagAnilBhaag campaign has currently raised over Rs. 24,000 till now.

Nakuul Mehta, lifestyle T-shirt brand, Moochawala and Fueladream.com looking at helping Anil to fulfil his dream by raising funds under the #BhaagAnilBhaag campaign. The funds will be generated via the proceeds from the sale of the Be Badasso T-shirt line. For every t-shirt sold, Moochwala will contribute the same to Anil’s campaign. People can help Anil by either buying a T-shirt from Moochwala (part of the proceeds will be donated then on Fueladream.com) or they can go directly to Fueladream.com and make a contribution. The brainchild of Ranganath Thota, FuelADream.com is a crowd-funding marketplace for people and organisations that aim to raise funds for creative ideas, causes, charities etc. and impact 2.2 billion people in India, Africa and S.E Asia.
Nakuul Mehta adds, “I believe Anil’s struggles are a testament to his unrelenting spirit. It would be such a pity if for the want of money, he’s not able to realize his dream of representing our country. Be Badasso, for us, is the millennial analogy and physical expression of Anil’s dream and his efforts. My aim is to make sure we use our collective goodwill and be Anil’s totally badass extended family by helping raise enough funds for him to go compete in China and make his family – us – beam with pride.”

Kapil Sharma: “I request media persons to stop putting words in my mouth”

Kapil Sharma Coming Back To The Kapil Sharma Show

Kapil Sharma Teaming Up With Abhishek Krushna? “Don’t believe What You Read I Haven’t Spoken To Any Media Or Journalist At All.”

Kapil Sharma is getting ready for a comeback to television in a big way. But hang on. Let’s not jump the gun.Or the TRPs.

Kapil is out of shape. And he knows it. After his extended sabbatical he is now in the process of restructuring his daily regimen, and that includes a firm fitness programme.He intends to go on rigorous crash-diet to look presentable on camera once again.

In the meanwhile he requests media outlets to stop putting words in his mouth.

When I caught up with him Kapil he shocked me by informing me that the quotes attributed to him are fake. “I’ve not spoken to a single journalist nor given quotes to any portal , website or newspaper. Wohkhud likh rahen jo unki marzi (they are writing whatever they want). I request media persons to stop putting words in my mouth in the hope that I wouldn’t see the fake quotes attributed me.”

Meanwhile reports of Kapil Sharma teaming up with his old friend and arch-rival Abhishek Krushna are being described by sources close to Kapil as “premature and impractical”.

According to sources close to Kapil, Abhishek Krushna is “just an idea”.

Says the source close to Kapil, “The thought may have crossed his mind.But to announce that Kapil is teaming up with Abhishek Krushna or anyone else at this point of time is premature.Kapil may team up with anyone whom he has worked with earlier, or non of them.He may introduce new comic talent in his new show. Kapil also read he’s coming back in The Kapil Sharma Show. At the moment the name of the show is under discussion. But yes, it would be stand-up comedy. That’s what audiences want from Kapil.Beyond that he has not yet figured out any detail.”

It Is Not The End Of The Road For Kapil Sharma

It Is Not The End Of The Road For Kapil Sharma

All of us who wished to see Kapil Sharma snap back into shape have our fingers crossed. Close friends say, the comic virtuoso who brought so much happiness into our lives with his stand-up act on television, is in no mood to return to television immediately.

“He doesn’t seem to know what he wants. He does seem to know what he doesn’t want. For example, he didn’t want to come back to India from his long holiday in Europe. He was happy being on his own, walking sleeping, eating, thinking. He is just not up to the life of a tv entertainer as yet. He feels all his troubles and anxieties have come upon him after his success as an entertainer. He wants to return to his life on camera which he now feels is a lie but a part of his life,” says a source.

In fact, Kapil had confessed to me, “Sach bolun? Main thak gaya hoon iss bhaag-daud se. Main yeh sab ab karna hi nahin chahta (shall I tell you the truth? I am tired of all this running around. I don’t want to do all this anymore).”

At that time Kapil’s close friends and his girlfriend Ginny had dismissed his anguished outcry as an over-reaction.

Now it seems Kapil is gearing up for a new inning in showbiz. He gave up the spiraling TRPs of The Kapil Sharma Show, took a break then returned with Family Time With Kapil. When that wasn’t working out Kapil voluntarily closed down the show. Contrary to popular belief, the channel didn’t ask Kapil to leave. He did so on his own.

Kapil had said to me, “What is the point of doing something I don’t enjoy? If I don’t enjoy it how can I expect the audience to have a good time?”

Now I realize how ominous Kapil’s words were. The truth is, Kapil was tired of that phase of his life.

But he is ready to return. All the people who conspired to tarnish his image—a disgruntled girlfriend, a comedian colleague who found his fame on Kapil’s show and then defamed his mentor by blowing up a fight out of all proportions—should stop feeling happy. The coast isn’t clear for the rivals.

The audience will accept Sunil Grover or Abhishek Krushna in Kapil’s place. Kapil is and will always remain irreplaceable. To those who brought about his downfall I say, enjoy your tryst with borrowed glory. In fame, Kapil made his colleagues famous. In his exile too he has brought recognition to his colleagues. Now he is soon coming back. Go get into drag as much as you like, gender-bending won’t usurp Kapil from the throne

There cannot be another Kapil Sharma simply because no one does the stand-up gig as effortlessly as him. He never has to dress up as a woman, spew double-meaning jokes or suck to stars. Kapil Sharma was funny without trying. Thank you for all the laughter, Thank you for taking Indian television out of the clutches of Ekta Kapoor’s sickening soaps and the Big Boss brand of crude reality, thank you for making Indian television bearable.

Do what makes you happy. You brought a smile into our lives. Now it’s your turn.

No one cares to see the pain that Kapil is going through. They only see the rude obnoxious tweets. If only they would see the provocation behind these unsavoury outbursts of truancy. No, it is not arrogance. It’s just the opposite. Kapil is an extremely vulnerable man who was unequipped to handle the superstardom that hit him, and Indian television, like a meteor. We didn’t see it coming. Neither did Kapil.

Now that it has claimed him, the stupendous success, he doesn’t know how to handle it. I’ve known him since he became THE Kapil Sharma and he has never been anything less than warm affectionate, always sharing his inner-most fears and insecurities with me.

When I spoke to him after the Friday fireworks that eroded his reputation, even more, he was not the least apologetic. On the contrary, he told me things related to the incident that further exposed the hollowness of this whole sham and shindig that we call showbiz. In a world of makebelieve where there are no real friendships, Kapil looks for genuinely unaffected caring people. And when he doesn’t find them he recoils and hits out at those very people who use his superstardom for their own gains.

While it would be unethical of me to reveal the shocking details that emerged from Kapil’s heartfelt outpouring on Friday night I can say this much without breaching his trust: Kapil is very very hurt with the betrayals that he has gone through in the past few years.

“How would you respond if you went through the same things? Wouldn’t you be angry? We all have our way of expressing anger, I do it with gaalis,” Kapil told me.

He also promised to marry the very devoted very intelligent and sorted girlfriend Ginny, the mysterious girlfriend whom no one knows about, and whom Kapil says he is already married to in his mind. Making it official would be just the kind of formality that’s abhorred by the informal unassuming unpretentious boy-man from Amritsar who brought so much laughter into our lives and I am sure will continue to do so in the feature.
