Mumbai, July 13 (IANS) Actress Niti Taylor got a chance to learn pottery on the set of TV show “Ghulaam”.
Niti, who plays Shivani in the show, will be seen helping the ladies in Berehampur with pottery as part of “Beti Bacho, Bavisha Bano” — a women empowering initiative to bring change in the village.
“It was real fun trying my hands at pottery. I was taught the procedure, and with lot of attempts I finally managed to get it right. But, on the whole, it was a good experience. I truly had fun shooting for the same,” Niti said in a statement.
“Ghulaam”, aired on Life OK, also features Param Singh and Ridheema Tiwari.
Shantanu’s special connect with Spanish crew
Dancer-actor Shantanu Maheshwari, who will next be seen as a contestant on upcoming stunt based reality show “Khatron Ke Khiladi 8”, says he had a gala time shooting with the people of Spain and calls it a “life changing experience” for himself.
“After the final stunt, we posed for pictures and while I was heading back to my vanity, I had over 10 people waiting and then they began clapping. That was the sweetest thing ever. My driver gifted me a handmade catapult,” Shantanu said in a statement.
“Translators, make-up person, spot, driver, stunt-men — everyone gathered for the final good-byes. All this while we hardly communicated with words due to the different language and they weren’t well acquainted with English, but I’ve always received enough warmth and affection,” he added.
Shantanu says the Spanish crew of the show made him feel “special”.
“I spent all my free time with them, we would play volleyball, they would take me for local touring. It didn’t seem like work at all. It was a life changing experience and I’ve made new friends. I’ve invited them to come to India so I can be their guide,” he concluded.
Besides Shantanu, “Khatron Ke Khiladi 8” will also feature Geeta Phogat, Manveer Gurjar, Shibani Dandekar, Lopamudra Raut, Monica Dogra, Nia Sharma, Ravi Dubey, Karan Wahi and Rithvik Dhanjani.
Hosted by Bollywood filmmaker Rohit Shetty, the show will soon be aired on Colors.
