Published

We can`t get over the fact yet that we are not seeing ever so charming and handsome star from Mrs.Mukhyamantri everyday with our parents and secretly blushing and also finding ourselves totally crushing on this star Tejas Barve.We are not so secretly stalking him on social media too!

We are so sorry boys but Tejas Barve is just raising the bar higher with his smile and looks that can kill! (I know most of you girls can relate to this and are jealous if you are a boy!)

From Zindagi not out to Mrs.Mukhyamantri his eyes did the magic, so his acting touched many hearts with his roles that made him a household name.

So for you guys I asked some Real questions to the actor while wishing we met in person!

Was acting your forever passion ya waqt ne kiya kya haseen sitam?

I can`t say it was passion but I loved to mimic people around me, my teachers, my parents but I had no idea I would be an actor some day and this helped me later on! But I was somehow always attached to art whether be in music form(I used to play Tabla) or acting in fests later on.

Which role you love to play onscreen?

I don`t have such list of roles I like playing, I try to play every role I get convincingly. that I like playing some particular role. I love to explore the versatility as an actor. And fortunately I have got different roles to play in my journey whether that be a teenage boy from Zindagi Not Out or a obeying son and a husband balancing two roles in Mrs.Mukhyamantri. I have loved playing every role from my heart.

Who is your favourite from the industry?

I can`t choose one because I haven`t taken any course in acting as such but through out the journey I learnt it from various actors from Laxmikant Berde to some budding artists, my journey has been graced by every actor out there. But for a special mention Sushant Singh Rajput have inspired me a lot and I relate to him a lot. Also not to forget, Shah Rukh Khan has great influence on my life and thoughts, he is someone I have always looked upto.

How was it being a Zee face?

Its every artists dream to work on Zee and fortunately I have worked for Zee Yuva as well as Zee Marathi. I am very thankful to Zee because due to Zee I reached almost every household in Maharashtra. As a child we always have a dream to feature under Zee banner and of course for me it was a dream come true moment.

Which Bollywood character you would love playing online?

There are many roles that I would like to play and I am well aware that to reach that level of acting it would take a lot of time but if given a chance it would be some Amir Khan role because I find his movies unique and worth watching say Akash from Dil Chahta Hai, you need to potray that character in such a manner that it wouldn`t look vulgar nor Sober. So I would definitely like to hop into something like that.

What was your experience while struggling in the initial days? Did you thought that this would come so far

I did various plays in my 11th and 12th. The first year of my college I participated in every event I can because I thought it was my last year to do so and from second year I took external because as a normal middle class student I wanted to settle down so immediately after that I started to interview for companies in Pune. Never thought I would take my acting this level seriously and pursue acting as my full-time career it was all destiny I guess.

How does it feel to be more samar than Tejas barve ?

Actually I guess being summer is a responsible task because he is one of the ideal personalities we can find and also in the serial summer is always under the pressure and very opposite at my house atmosphere is more friendly. But with samar he was always under pressure but still calm, composed and sweet. Of course there are many similarities between us and that is the reason I could play samar other more convincingly on screen

Do you watch yourself on screen what are your thoughts on it?

No I don’t usually watch myself on screen I don’t like to actually! When someone tells me that this scene you have played brilliantly then I watch it and also if someone tells me that this scene can be improved I watch it just to see what improvements were needed in the scene.I usually think watching your self on screen again and again limits yourself to yourself and you can’t explore more and more.

What are your ultimate goals in this acting career?

Ultimate goal is to explore various characters to tell different stories to play some challenging roles convincingly and more importantly it is important that you yourself and acting well playing a role along with the audience. So ultimate goal is to explore and prepare myself to be a better actor.

What message would you like to give to your fans?

Thank you Tejas Barve for taking out time to know more about you!

svetana kanwar

Svetana Kanwar, founder of “The Bom Squad” which is an all girls dance group. These girls have participated in may competitions and have won as well. The red-haired girl is very famous for moves which she fusions with the Bollywood music, which also makes her go viral on the internet. Have a look at the questions she answered on an interview with the Paradox about herself, her journey, her struggles and many more.

An exclusive interview with Svetana Kanwar:

What are your thoughts on dancing in India as a profession?

Svetana Kanwar: Honestly, I started dancing to  14 to 15 years back. At that time period, choosing dance as a profession was very difficult and the mindset of the people denied accepting dancing as a career. But the time have changed now, people accept it as a full time job to be a dancer. Still mant parents thinks that you are not a dancer until you win a reality show or even take part in it. It’s the mindset which needs to be changed, other than that there are a lot more opportunity for the young generation to take it as a career.

What does dancing means to you? How do you feel when you dance?

Svetana Kanwar: The answer to this question changes according to the phase of life I am in. Also my age plays an important role In describing it. If you would have asked me this question 10 years or 5 years back then my answer would be different each time. There was a time when dance used to be my entire life but now it is an very important part of my life. It helps me express myself, makes me confident, make me realise reality, basically it is a stabilizer in my life.

What would you say to people who wants to take dancing as a career?

Svetana Kanwar :Also it depends on time, if I talk about myself I had times when I could hardly breathe and there were also the times when I had much and much time to breathe, and this is what life is. Being a self-employed dancer is not a stable job but it gives you joy, satisfaction and mental peace. You can be choreographer, teacher, dance artist for movies, content creators and many more. You have got many platforms which can help you to be a professional dancer.

What difference did the Pandemic has made in your field?

Svetana Kanwar: It has made a huge difference for me. First lockdown was very productive for me, because of online classes I have learned so many new things. But the second lockdown was not that great as many things were going on and there was shortage of money. All my plans, which I would be accomplishing 6 years down, l want to do it now. My goals have been shifted. Covid has been a teacher for everyone and has taught something to everyone in a good or a bad way.

Which BOM Squad performance is closest to your heart?

Svetana: We did a performance called #metoo, I get goosebumps even thinking about it. I remember, we wrote every incident of our life and not only the small ones but also the big ones. It was about 26 minutes long and when we presented it, we made it around 2,5 minutes. It was very memorable for us as we were able to express what we were feeling and the response we got was overwhelming. So this was something very different that remains close to my heart.

What is your driving force which got you this far?

Svetana: I haven’t ever imagined my dancing career as it is now. When I was younger I never imagined that this many people would know me, I would be this big name in the dancing industry. But yes it feels great. When I started I had thoughts to achieve even more which I am not able to achieve till date. But it feels good to know that your work is appreciated and ypu are known among your rivals. Whenever someone says me that I wont be able to do it, I always did it. This is the which keeps me driving towards the success.

What are your moods like when it comes to dancing, keeping apart your achieving spirit?

 Svetana: The mood which keeps me dancing, and also the reason why I love Jazz so much is sensuality. It is the thing which is easy to adopt for me. I can quickly learn it and is very easy for me to express myself in that. I think pain is a mood which come to me easily as well.

Apart from Jazz what are the other dance styles which you love to do?

Svetana: I think contemporary is the form which I love practicing, although I am not in that good shape in which in can practice Contemporary or even Jazz, because I have not been traning myself much. Other that this I enjoy dancing in the Bollywood style a lot.

How was your struggling phase?

Svetana: I was a non-dancer which is the most struggling part in my initial days. I was very weak on rhythm and body movement. I left my marketing management course to be a dancer but I was very bad it. My teacher used to make me stand in the corner of the last row, that’s how bad dancer I was. I am not a fast learner but I can work really hard to learn something and that is the reason why I call myself as a good teacher.

What I think is I have built resilience because of my struggles. I have also struggled because of my weight, there is a great difference from now in my body weight. I always use to hear I cannot dance as I was fat but that was the mentality at that time. It was a struggler had a phase of lot of learning as well as I wanted to build a name of myself in the outside world. It has been a good journey and still is. I am still learning and will continue doing.

What would be the 5 best qualities that you would pick out of yourself?

Svetana: Its always hard to praise yourself but still the qualities would be…

  1. I am very Hardworking.
  2. Also I don’t give up easily.
  3. I would call my Stubbornness as a good quality to some extent.
  4.  I am at a certain level where I can emphasis with others.
  5. Being emotional and sensitive is considered as a negative quality but I don’t think so.

What are your upcoming projects?

Svetana: Yes, there are a couple of projects coming, I cannot talk much about them. But yes there are a few collaborations as well. December and January are more personal then professional as I am travelling. I will start teacing from January and I am very excited for that.

Whom would you consider as your Role Models?

Svetana: There are lot of people who are my role models. It changes according to situation as there are so many brilliant people out there with so many qualities. But the people who I constantly look upto would be Galen Hooks, Brian Friedman and Jojo Gomez. For leadership qualities I look upto M.S Dhoni, and Suresh from Kings United has also built a great team as a leader.

Where do you see yourself after 5 years?

Svetana: After 5 years, I don’t see myself in the city like Mumbai, I see myself in Banglore or Goa or Dehradun or Dubai or Doha. I basically see myself in a nice big home, starting my own academy or classes. Because I don’t see Mumbai as a learning culture any more and so there is less Teaching culture as well. I want to get back to teaching and that’s where I see myself in the next 5 years.

What was your most significant failure and how did you overcome that?

Svetana: I think it is my struggle itself. All the failures were at the struggle phase only like I was a camera shy, I couldn’t dance infront of the camera. I don’t believe in failure bit instead I take it as learning.

What are your fears now?

Svetana: I fesr of losing my fame which I have earned in these many years with my hardwork. I fear that 2 or 3 years later no one would recognize who Svetana Kanwar is. I think this is the biggest fear.

What would be your advice to the freshers in dancing industry?

Svetana: I would say that don’t let your fall or failure stop you from what you are trying to achieve. It takes time, hardwork and a certain amount of luck to reach at the top of any field you want to achieve. The whole thing is about not giving up, you are allowed to take a break but not to quit.

This was Svetana Kanwar along with her interesting journey and honest answers in front of you. She has travelled a log way to achieve what she has today and all her hardwork, sacrifice and dedication has payed off to her with such a good name among the dance industry.

Suzanne bernert
Glimpse from accidental Prime Minister

Lets have a look at the Question which she answered during the live interview on Paradox India.

Has acting been you childhood dream?

Suzanne Bernert: Yes, acting has been my forever dream since my childhood, but being an actress in the Indian film Industry was never planned. I started acting in Germany, had my stage debut there. It was just a accidental encounter with a film director from India when I was in Dubai.

What you love about Mumbai?

Suzanne: There is something very addictive about the city. You miss it when you are not here. Despite of the Pandemic times there is always something happening here which I like, the thing which I don’t like is the infrastructure here, no matter what we build, we still have more people in the city.

Are you a fan of local street food of Mumbai?

Suzanne: Yes I am, I enjoy eating Vadapav but there has to be a very little amount of spices in that, because still I am not habitual to the spicy food of India. I need to take my Ayurvedic pills after having spicy food cause it causes me stomach ache or acidity. Chat and PaniPuri is also one of my favourite street food, I find D-Mart having good PaniPuri stalls.

How were your initial days in the film industry?

Suzanne: I had a lot of struggle with the food, the climate and the language. I got the script, but could not understand because I don’t know Hindi. There was a lot of things going on the set at a time, so there is a very less possibility of getting help from others cause everyone is assigned with a work to complete within the time. This was the struggle I faced but my collegues used to help me with that.

How was experience in Kasauti Zindagi Ki and Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai?

Suzanne Bernert: All the shows have a different kind of experience which is unique. One thing I can say is that I always had a very good team in each show. For a time being they become your family, because you meet them everyday, work with them everyday and talk to them everyday. So there is always a good experience and no comparison between any show. I feel very blessed that I have done so many shows.

What is your preference: A Movie or A T.V Serial?

Suzanne Bernert: I am having web series as my upcoming projects which are kind of related to T.V but are short termed. As of now, I just want to be on set everyday, work everyday. And you never know what comes because I played the roles of Daughter in law in the initial days a lot and then suddenly got something different. Something different always comes to your way from what you expect.

Who is your favourite co-star to work with?

Suzanne: My husband, Akhil Mishra. Because sometimes you get so busy with the work that youi don’t even get time for eachother, so working togeather is always fun. Sometimes he used to come to the set during the Ashoka serial and similarly I visit him during the shoot of Uttran.

You have worked in multilingual film industries like Bengali, Marathi and Hindi. How are these industries different from each other?

Suzanne Bernert: The Marathi and the Bengali movies always seems like an family project because they are small and intimate. Whereas in Hindi movies there are a lot of people and too many things going on. You want to be nice with everyone but at the same time you don’t know everyone. And my recent Malayalam movie experience was also very good, I would love to more of South Indian movies.

What keeps you focused and motivated?

Suzanne: I started Yoga in the lockdown. And I feel it has helped me a lot, I feel more focused more controlled on my breath, my tune, my acting. So I would recommend everyone to start practicing Yoga and meditation.    

How do you manage your Personal and Professional life?

Suzanne: I believe in go with the flow and also we don’t have children so that also makes it quite easy to manage both.

What would you consider as your greatest achievement till date?

Suzanne: I think winning the hearts of all the people here is my greatest achievement. The show, Chakravartin Ashoka Samrat was the reason for all my achievements, because after that show I got recognized by the people on the streets on South Bombay.

How was your experience in playing the role of Sonia Gandhi in the movie, Accidental Prime Minister?

Suzanne: Playing a role of someone who is alive is always challenging. I used to watch her videos on repeat and tried to be real. I used to be me, when I wear the saree and the wig, but the moment I put the spectacles on it makes me feel the character. There was something in the glasses which made me Sonia Gandhi.

Who is your role model?

Suzanne: I think you take different things from different people. My mother, my grandmother, my husband are my role models. And in acting, Austrian actor named Klaus Maria Brandauer, whom I also met once.

What are your favouraite movies?

Suzanne: There are so many of them. For T.V show I would say Blacklist and in movie I saw Out Of Africa with the same emotions after 20 years. Sometimes I also like to watch the 90’s movies.

How do you deal with the trolls and the negative rumors of you?

Suzanne: I came across some such haters on twitter. I love to grow from the trolls by the unhappy people who want you to be unhappy.

How was yor experience with the show 7RCR?

Suzanne: We had roles on almost all the big political leaders of the country. We took actual photographs and recreated the whole incidents of their past life and that was the show.

How was the webseries, Stage Of Siege 26/11?

Suzanne: It was shot in the year 2019, but came out the previous year. It was a similar experience as of Ashoka serial, and I also did Jhansi Ki Rani with them, which was the third project, so it felt like all the familiar faces and for the first time when I worked with the foreign directors. It was a little hard in understanding their slangs for the first time, but was a pleasant experience gradually.

Anything about Amir Khan?

Suzanne: He is a very normal guy. Working with him and achieve what we had at time was all about the chemistry infront of the camera. Which also makes it one of my favoiraite projects. He also makes you feel really confident.

What role preferances you would choose for your future projects?

Suzanne: I always find that whatever I get offered is more than what I was imagining, so it upto the universe about my future roles.

Any message to the City Of Dreams, Mumbai?

Suzanne: Just keep working because it is a happening city. There is always something happening here, which is very good. So just Never Give Up.

What are your future projects?

Suzanne: if everything goes well, hopefully I will be working and will be on the sets again. It was supposed to be in the may but it is already over. I cannot reveal the names but I am very much excited for them.
