Nana Patekar Sexually Harassed Me: Tanushree Dutta!

Former Miss India and Bollywood actor Tanushree Dutta who had been away from the country for quite some time returned to India in July this year. In a recent interview with Zoom TV, she said that she was harassed by actor Nana Patekar on the sets of 2009 film Horn ‘Ok’ Please.
She said,"Everyone knows about Nana Patekar that he has always been disrespectful towards women. People in the industry know that he has beaten actresses, he has molested them. His behaviour with women has always been crude but no publication has printed anything about it."

“Everyone has gossiped about this but have never spoken. People with this kind of character speak like this against the kind of character that I have because they say she does glamourous roles so must be glamorous and all. Behind the back, they are so dirty. When you are in the industry you hear so many stories about these actors. But these things never take surface because they are PR packaged very well. They will give some money to some poor farmers. How much they do and how much they don’t, no one knows. But all this is just for show.”

This is shocking!

Rishi Kapoor Diagnosed With Stage 3 Cancer? Randhir Kapoor Opens Up


Few days ago Rishi Kapoor tweeted that he is leaving for US for the treatment because of his ill health, and he even said that he will be back soon. And yesterday his mother Krishna Raj Kapoor passed away due to cardiac arrest, and Rishi’s son Ranbir Kapoor and wife Neetu Singh couldn’t attend her funeral as they are in US with the actor. And now an online portal Bollywood Bubble claims that the actor is suffering from stage three cancer.
A source close to Kapoor family shared,"Flown to the US for treatment. The doctors have called him in for a 45-day treatment that includes chemotherapy sessions too. Rishi along with Neetu, Ranbir are currently staying there and now Ranbir will have to come back to begin shooting for his films. Which is when Ridhima Kapoor Sahni will be travelling to be with mom and dad. It’s a trying time for the veteran actor.”

Now his brother Randhir Kapoor opens up on this news to TOI and said,"We don’t know yet what is the exact nature of his ailment. Rishi himself doesn’t know what he’s suffering from. He has not even started undergoing tests there; how can people speculate that he has cancer and that too, 
one that has escalated to advanced stage. Let him undergo tests peacefully; whatever the results we will let everyone know. He only reached America two-three days ago and so far he was being prepared for the tests that he has to undergo. Depending on what the results are, his line of treatment, medication and other modalities will be decided upon. It’s not fair to speculate things just like that."

We hope his speedy recovery!

#FESTIVEFINDS Block Printed Sharara Under INR 1300


I love our festivals mostly because I go on a shopping spree for new ethnic Indian outfits. 2018 has been big on the wide-legged trend even when it came to quintessential India wear. Pallazos, Shararas, ghararas, wide-legged pants under kurta- there has been everything on the must-have list. I swear...I discovered so many new, homegrown, local fashion brands doing Indian wear like never before. So when I have to pick A LOT many number of festive outfits and still stick to a budget, I always fall back on my tried and tested Amazon Indian Fashion website. I have tried so many smaller, newer labels and needless to say, I love my shopping experience. This sharara set from Amazon comes from a brand called Khushal and is made of 100% cotton fabric. I love the block printed pattern on the entire set with a subtle gota design on the neckline. It is indeed a great bet for home pujas and card parties. I bought a Medium size but it is extremely fitted and hence I would recommend for you to go a size down for a more comfortable fit or rather refer to the size chart for exact details. Also, this stunning ensemble is priced at INR 1299 on Amazon and can be purchased here on this link.

7 Things I Learnt In 2018 That I am Thankful For!


Each year, I am always thinking about the kind of post that I want to draft and share amidst all the highs and lows as we approach the new year. 2018 was a year of retrospection, a year to take it slow, a year to re-set new goals and ambitions in life, a year to look after my pending health issues and finally, a year to be a better (Family) person. I know that the last part of my sentence can sound a bit confusing, but in reality, this was one area I struggled to cope up with the most. Whether it was making time to call up my parents in my very busy life or speaking to my childhood bestie (which wasn't more than 8-10 odd times this year) or taking up 'at home' responsibilities a lot more seriously. I intended to be a better person, making time to do things at home with a lot more passion indulge in forgotten hobbies, doing daily yet understated routines better and making time for exercising at least 3-4 times in a week without fail. Blogging as an industry, as a business has changed completely in 2018 and even though I am one of the first gen bloggers, I find it quite difficult to cope up with the virtual life with all the craziness that I have in my real life. If you have read my post on how to make money by blogging in India, or how much money I earn by blogging then you'll know that in today's age time, personal development is being compromised to live an 'Instagram' perfect life and I am guilty of doing the same. Having said that, if you are a married (to someone who doesn't even close to your profession), have things-to-do (home edition and not personal skincare list), have compromised your health to some extent or have wandered aimlessly on your mobile apps (for hours) this year, then this the post for you!

1. Keep NO excuses to spend time with family, your parents or chilling with your siblings. Call and let people know that you miss being with them even if you are a part of 100 WhatsApp family groups, chat groups or more. 

Note to self: Begin to remember birthdays and make sure to call everyone I can in 2019.

2. Making to-do daily household chores lists is just as important as making office task lists. A shower knob may need repair, your ceiling fans may need cleaning, a long pending almirah needs a wardrobe refresh and sorting out, a broken bathroom mug needs to be thrown out, a toothbrush holder may need a wash and an RO water purifier may just need candle replacement or servicing  et al. Begin to do daily- not-so-glorified chores with great passion and find happiness in fixing things up offline

Note to self: Work on daily spend/budget lists in 2019 for a bigger saving plan

3. Read, Play, Paint, Dance, Cycle, Join a baking short course, learn the art of making chocolates, pick up continental food classes or teach. Pursue hobbies that have been buried deep down inside a grave ever since you picked up your job. 

Note to self: Finish reading Harry Potter Series in Jan-Feb 2019. I already feel judged to share this- but I haven't read any book after the first one and only saw films, the Harry Potter studio in London to know things in details. 

4. Don't travel for Instagram perfect photos. It's important to travel, live your experience, learn about a place you visit and still not have perfect Instagram photos. The business of 'influencing' is only effective when your experiences make people opt for that very thing that you used or endorsed. Branded travels are a different game altogether but when you are traveling with family or your loved ones on a non-sponsored journey than try not to fall for perfect photos. It will save you time and help you see places from a different perspective. I made it a point to share a few peels of all the travels I undertook in the second half of the year and it just made me happier!

Note to self: keep continuing with posting-less-photos-while-traveling to make most of a trip!

5. It's OKAY to change your goals and ambitions in life as you grow old. There's no harm in developing an idea with utmost passion while you are continuing with your present journey. For bloggers, Goals, ambitions will change and Moreover, the lives of your readers will also change. Ambitious people are goal oriented and are always striving towards the next milestone. Don't feel too bad if your current project doesn't excite you anymore- you can always change your job, your work profile, your travel plans, your business ideas, your content feed on Instagram et al. Your ambitions also control your quality vs quantity parameter- For say, I don't believe in anyone on social media who gets excited about EVERY new product launch in the market and then goes all ga-ga about it on their social media, this is also a reason why you'll notice me cutting down on so many product collabs  from same product category on my blog. For a long time I resisted this change but after 7 years of blogging, and many small projects in between- here I am with Weddingbytes.in. A label that I have co-created with my most passionate team to bring to you guys wedding basics and ethnic Indian wear at great price points!

Note to self: Master the art of balancing between projects and go all out with weddingbytes in 2019.

6. Avoid the trap of comparing yourself to others. I have been guilty of doing this and have felt disappointed at times on not working with some brands or how some influencers were getting to do so much whereas I was struggling with time...Over the due course I have come to terms with the fact that you should measure your success with how much you are able to stretch yourself, cross your own limits. Setting goals and working towards them with passion and focus will help you achieve everything and at the same time appreciate other's success genuinely.

Note to self: Get inspired by other people's fire but always remember to set your limit in 2019

7. Practice manifestation for positive thoughts will attract positive outcomes. I am pretty new at this but my mom's surgery post-Diwali this year and a few other life touching incidents have assured my faith in the power of manifestation. You can begin with a gratitude journal or meditate your desires or begin with simply visualizing what and how the outcome will make you feel like to attract all positive vibrations. This is science and if you find doing this tough then believe in the powers of prayers and pray atleast once in 24 hours. You can learn more about manifestation here.

Note to self: Do Not Question the Universe Too Much.

My finale outfit post had to be a saree and this entire look is from my label weddingbytes. The hair and makeup have been done by my talented MUA, Shilpi. The stunning photos have been taken by Dulhan herself, Megha. Also, a big shoutout to Doubletree by Hilton, Gurgaon for helping us with the most pleasing locations. 

Celebrating ‘A Long Distance Wali’ Holi With Mother Dairy!

This year happens to be my first holi without my husband at our home, the festival that we both have truly treasured always! The thought is unnerving and yet very sentimental because being an Army wife comes with its own set of responsibilities and dues. 2 years into the marriage and even though my better half has tried to hold the family together by being present for most of our festivities, there were days when we celebrated our big milestones over phone calls, video chats, and letters! An ode to all the beautiful festival memories we have made together, I have decided to celebrate this Holi, the Mother Dairy Way!

 In case you are home away from home this holi, or can't play with your loved ones or are shying away from getting messy because 'ab hum bade ho gaye hain',  then it's time to do an #InstaPichkari with Mother Dairy! My most favourite milk brand has launched a social media activity that allows you to show your fun holi spirit to your friends on Instagram by simply uploading your photographand using the brush tool to smear colour all over your photo! While you do this, make sure to use the hashtag #InstaPichkari and tag @Motherdairy for a re-post!

 This year, like all the previous years- our family has come together to make sweet and savory gujiyas at home including the milk thandai for the big daySo when I learned about the Mother Dairy Holi campaign, #InstaPichkari, I couldn’t be more thrilled! From packing his favorite sweets and the homemade thandai mix, I am steeping up the game by sending him an #InstaPichkari selfie as a fun yet quirky wish this holi

I honestly don't think that there is any 'appropriate' age to play holi, smear colour all over or to drink yummy milk thandai!Because I see the older lot shying away from all the festive chaos, make sure to shed all your inhibitions and dance away in the colourful spirit of holi!

Ring in the festival of colours with an aromatic glass of Mother Dairy wali milk thandai, reminiscent of creamy milk, sweet-scented spices and dry fruits! Also, do not forget to post your #instaPichkari selfies on Instagram and share it with me and @motherdairy. Have a safe and beautiful festivities!

Celebrating #ShareTheLoad Movement With Ariel On Women’s Day!

This year women's day turned out to be special in so many ways courtesy Ariel India. For a brand that has always stood for progressive thinking and inclusion in today's time, Ariel ensured to celebrate womanhood by reminding us all that men in our lives can help, participate and contribute to our efforts of the women and play a significant role in household chores by simply sharing the load. 

Ariel planned a special event at Select City Walk Mall, Delhi and invited us to bring along the Superwoman in our lives, which in my case happened to be my mother! The event saw TV celebrity Ravi Dubey along with his Mother & Wife, Sargun Mehta sharing their thoughts on collaborative household duties and why #ShareTheLoad is an everyday phenomenon for the couple! Sargun was gushing how her husband Ravi takes charge of their morning coffee and is quick to help when it comes to cleaning the house as well. Ravi, on the other hand, lauded his mother who taught him all the household chores including regular laundry from the start! It was absolutely delightful to hear their mother talk about sons being responsible at homes than just being busy pursuing one's career. 

Ariel has indeed gone all out to educate their users- men, women, mother-son, the husband-wife duo on the dire need of dividing household duties and not restricting it to external jobs. When the men in the family are not equipped to #sharetheload with tasks at home, the entire weight of those falls on women’s shoulders which ultimately impacts their career aspirations and performance at work. In case you haven’t seen their thought-provoking campaign, then watch this video below- 

Our women's day celebration continued with this impactful message and next, we headed to the PVR Cinemas to watch the exclusive screening of the film Captain Marvel! The film is firing girl power on all cylinders. Loved how on women's day, we finally got a long overdue female superhero on screen. 

I had such a great time with my mother by my side as we celebrated the essence of womanhood with Ariel. Fortunately for me, my father and now my husband both ensure to take up home duties and #sharetheload timely! As for us women, I feel that we must teach our sons, sons-in-law, brothers to address the issue of Gender Inequality within households to make a greater impact in society!

Here Are Some Medical Reasons Why you Are Unable To Lose Weight!

Most of you would know that I had a chance to visit the SRL Diagnostics Lab in Goregaon Mumbai that not only opened my eyes towards healthcare for women but has also equipped me with a better knowledge towards my body, my medical needs, and concerns. Majority of us become very careless about our health and even if we do get into the entire gym-life-routine, there are many aspects of our body that we do not pay attention to over the period of time. Listening to your body and getting some advanced/specific tests can help to battle the dissatisfaction to lose weight while at the same time addressing problems like fatigue, tiredness, dullness or weakness. 

One lab that literally opened my eyes towards weight-related checkup is the  SRL Diagnostics Lab - that is present across major cities in India and enjoys the status of being the most preferred labs by medical experts. SRL offers FITNESS CARE package that is ideal for women complaining of unexplained & uncontrolled weight gain. I would explain the tests later in the posts but before that, I just want to take a moment to appreciate the SRL Lab for its features and housing great technology that I had a chance to access to during my experiential. 

"SRL is the leading diagnostics company in India with an impressive reach, providing superior quality diagnostics services to its customers via an efficient network of labs and collection points. SRL Diagnostics has 397 networking laboratories; 24 radiology/ imaging centers; 44 NABL and CAP-accredited labs; and a footprint spanning more than 6739 collection points. The company has large labs in Dubai and Nepal and about 70 collection points in various countries outside India. 

The brand has also recently bagged the prestigious ‘Best brand in diagnostic services in pathology and radiology’ award at The Economic Times Best Brands award- 2019."

Coming back to the tests, a total of 74 tests were recommended to me including- lipid tests that basically studies Triglycerides, Cholesterol Total. The screening of detailed cholesterol levels can help you understand how cholesterol building up in the arteries can lead to severe health risks. The risk for heart disease can be found with the lipid profile test. Measuring of LDL and HDL cholesterol is useful, as the cholesterol levels can surge after menopause. Triglycerides are also measured in this test which in other words is finding the type of fat found in your blood. Your body uses triglycerides for energy. Other than this there were a liver, diabetes, thyroid and kidney tests along with a few others. 

One of the tests that caught my attention was the analysis of stress hormones (Cortisol) in our body. High levels of "the stress hormone," cortisol, can turn your overeating into a habit. Because increased levels of the hormone also help cause higher insulin levels, your blood sugar drops and you crave sugary, fatty foods. Understanding the importance of these tests have helped me devise a better plan for my fitness journey. 

Another test which was a part of the SRL Fitness Care package is the vitamin D test. Vitamin D deficiency can be one of the causes of cardiovascular disease, autoimmune diseases, infections, inflammatory bowel diseases, psychological disorders, even some cancers. Measuring it helps in keeping off from bone health risks and osteoporosis too.  All of the tests that were carried out cost me just Rs 3,599 which is a great value for money and costs half the price if you would have to get these done individually elsewhere. 

If you are leading a very busy lifestyle, then fret not as SRL has a large number of collection points across India for you to get your samples tested and collected from the comfort of your home. The reports can be accessed online on their website or you can even receive the same via email at your ease. 

Despite being a fitness enthusiast, getting my reports from SRL has opened my eyes to improve my journey better. One can consult with the resident doctors at the lab or can show the report to your family doctor. Ladies include regular health checkups to evaluate your overall well being and give SRL Diagnostics at try help identify any issues that your body may be going through. 

Find yourself the best health care package on their website www.srlworld.com.

Must Haves in this Occasion Month of December


It's December and the wedding season is in full swing in India. It's an unofficially occasional month of the year. Packed with Weddings, Anniversaries, Christmas and New Year’s Eve it’s very chaotic and confusing to choose the perfect outfit for every occasion. We’ll help you end the year with Trendy, Stylish and luxurious looks that you can slay at different events:

Lehengas for the winter wedding season.

Lehengas can never be out of fashion, whether you are the bride or bride’s maid you can pull out a Lehenga looking regal, royal and stylish all at the same time. Being the winter season you can opt for fabrics like velvet, raw silk, and brocade with some good wine shades of maroon, plum, burgundy, magenta, mauve, etc. Emerald green and royal blue can also be the eyecatcher in the crowd. These Fabrics and colors can look glamorous even with minimal work of zari, sequins and thread embroidery. Here are some Designer Lehengas which will surely swoon your hearts away.

Anarkalis for Princessy Vibes

Anarkali is the epitome of Mughal Princess. This month opt for some modern - traditional fusion Anarkalis such as jackets and cape styles.  The beauty of Anarkali is that it can be made in a variety of fabrics like cotton, silk, georgette, net, velvet, etc. From pastel to plum colors, we have witnessed the Bollywood actresses gracefully carrying it on different occasions. We have some list of  Embellished, embroidered and sequined Designer Anarkali that will turn you into a Mughal Princess.

Formal Gowns

Whether its a Wedding, Prom or Ball night, gowans are the perfect choice for such formal events. These one-piece, floor-length outfits can serve style and elegance with fine embroidery work of sequins, beads, pearls,etc. Organza satin, tulle, net with cancan underneath are ideal fabrics for gowns. If you love Gowns then these collection of Designer Gownsare worth a look.

Multiple-use Dresses

Now if you are wondering that there is no difference in a Gown or a Dress you are wrong. These two words are often used interchangeably, which makes it confusing. A gown can be called a dress but a dress is not a gown. Dresses can be worn on informal and formal occasions. A Floral printed flowy yet comfortable dress can be worn on a beach wedding and a sleek black mini dress can be worn at New Year Party. You can wear a single dress multiple times by adding an extra accessories such as a belt or throwing over a shrug, jacket, capes, basically any outer wear. Even a simple dress can look good with statement jewelry, handbag, and right shoes. You would definitely want to invest in these Designer Dresses that can be used at multiple events.

Versatile Kurtis
Like dresses, another versatile piece of the outfit is a Kurti. From a Wedding reception to a family birthday party a Kurti can be worn with leggings, narrow to wide-legged pants, jeans, and skirts. 

You can either customize or buy a Designer Kurtafrom minimal and light thread embroidery work to heavy embellished work according to the event you need it for.
