About Nandita Singgha

People talk about the Mary Kom biopic movie on release, a woman who won bronze medal in Olympics. At the same time Nandita Singgha, a know face in the corporate world, is a dynamic personality who never shied away from taking challenges head on. She has been a front runner in scripting Total presentation devices limited’s success on an international platform . The similarity between both of them is that they both are women achievers, Mary Com’s success gave a boost to the Indian female boxing sports. Similarly Nandita Singgha inspired the entire north eastern region of India , seven sister state to come out of their shell and join the IT INDUSTRY pan India in the last 10 years. She has successfully authored publications in marketing, selling and negotiation skills.

Seven sister state (north east)

She has guided and made the youth believe that its them who make a difference and the government just does the administration part. Ten years ago there was hardly anybody from north eastern region in technology. Many of them shied away and felt neglected. She bought confidence in them by visiting various states and addressing various youth associations to remove unemployment in that region.

She firmly believes that unemployment is more mental than physical. First engage your mind in a productive manner, only then can you look forward for opportunities. She motivated them and now you find them everywhere whether it’s a call center or R&D center.

Many directors have approached her to write a biopic about herself but she shied away saying there is lots to do and that her journey has just started. She wants to remain a common person, so that she can create more solutions for common man itself.

Nandita has been the president of youth association of the seven sister state, north east. From 2001 till date there has been more than 12 crore youths who have been employed from this region in technology and research and development. This was achieved without government support.

She has directed nearly 400 ads along with digital content sharing from 2003 onwards and have also funded many movies and serials.

Owing to the current track of Chidiya Ghar, Ghotak and his family are having a gala time at ‘Rann Mahotsav’ in Bhuj. Ghotak aka Paresh Ganatra got an opportunity to spend time with the villagers during the shoot and had fun-filled sessions with them at the festivities.

After the shoot would conclude, the villagers would flock around Ghotak to hear stories of the big city. The whole get-together would appear like a huge family coming together to greet a member who has returned home. Paresh was made to feast on the choicest of delicacies and was also treated to the local folk dances and music.

Most villagers connected with Paresh as a TC owing to his character Ghotak in Chidiya Ghar. They even jokingly enquired if he would take them along with him to Mumbai to show them around the city. These conversations created a pleasant connect amongst Paresh and the villagers. Paresh was very enthusiastic in his approach & even tried his hand at pot making & volunteered to be a partner in a turban making competition which endeared him to the crowds around him.

Paresh said, “It was an enriching and heart-warming experience at Rann Mahotsav. All the village folks gave me great respect and affection. We talked about the happenings in the villages & cities, they treated me to authentic festive delicacies which we seldom get to savor and made me feel at home. They even made me laugh by treating me like a real TC & asking for favours to take them along to Mumbai. I truly loved engaging with the villagers and trying my hand at the various activities in the festival. I hope I get to come back soon and interact with all of these lovely people again.”

We hope Paresh gets to visit his extended family soon to enjoy the festive hospitality again!

Tune into Chidiya Ghar to catch all the fun and comedy, from Monday to Friday at 9 pm only on SAB TV!

Similarly for Rajesh Kumar aka Dara Koyla from SAB TV’s new horror comedy ‘Pritam Pyaare Aur Woh’ is all about getting the right hair style. The tall lean, aristocratic-looking Vampire styles his hair in a different way, which goes the organic way. Rajesh is particular about his looks and most importantly he focuses to get a perfect hair style. Since the look requires, him to have a shiny black gelled hair, he prefers applying Egg-White as a solution on his hair, rather than the usual gel.

A source from the sets informs us, it takes him good amount of time to get him ready and he makes sure his looks are perfect and does not compromise at all on his hair-do. Because of the Egg-White in his hair, he gets the perfect hair style which lasts longer up to 10-12 hours, and once done he does not have to re-do it again.

While speaking with Rajesh, he says; “Being a Vampire in Pritam Pyaare Aur Woh, it’s important that my look, make-up and the attire is up-to-date, especially the hair. Vampire’s hair is always in good condition, sleek, well brushed and styled. I prefer going the organic way, as it leaves no side effects that one needs to worry.”

The audience will enjoy the thrill and fun together by watching Dara Koyla and his aid, face-off Pritam & Pyaare. Will the Ghost be busted… stay tuned in!
