Richa Chadha’s viral satire series Quarantina has her fans smiling!

The actress ‘s parody series has become a huge hit

In the testing times that we are living in, laughter is indeed the best medicine. That seems to be the strategy that Richa Chadha has adopted to spread some cheer.  She’s started a new parody series on her Instagram, where she appears as a kooky and euphoric news reporter called Quarantina, who shares weird news from all over the world. 

She recently also introduced an angry reporter from North India, called Tina Singh, who goes off-script in the middle of the sketch. While Richa has been seen in comic parts in films like Fukrey, her fans saw her off- screen funny self for the first time in ‘One Mic Stand’ last year, where she wrote and performed a stand – up comedy set for a live audience. 

The writing is pure satire and her effortless sense of humour is the hook of this series. Penning down some crackling sequences and performing them with finesse, Richa is in top form as she makes Quarantina shine because of her dark humour. 

While most Bollywood stars are busy posting either workout videos or getting fans to laugh by flaunting their jhadu-pocha (brooming and mopping) skills , Richa’s Quarantina stands out because she’s creating something specifically for the fans to keep going through these grim days and nights of the lockdown.

Richa said, “In the first week of the lockdown, I myself was getting depressed looking at the death toll of this lethal virus and those that are suffering because of the lockdown. It was giving me anxiety. So I decided to do something about it. While my donations for the underprivileged are ongoing, I wanted to create something  that would make people smile. Worrying about what’s in the store could push us into a dark space. I am not making fun of the disease and it’s impact, simply trying to highlight that even in these conditions, sometimes there’s bizarre news that can make you chuckle despite yourself. For reality and truth, there’s the news but I wanted to make satire which would lift our collective spirits in these times.”

Popular TV star Digangana Suryavanshi, who has this a unique record of  two of her debut Hindi movies namely ‘Jalebi’ and ‘FryDay’ releasing on the same day, seemed to be in an upbeat euphoric mood.

Despite the ongoing stay-at-home confinement’  That’s because the ‘Dollar-wear-the-change’ ad-commercial which she shot with megastar Akshay Kumar is now out and is being widely appreciated by viewers.   Shares the Mahesh Bhatt-discovery  Digangana, speaking exclusively to CineBlitz, “Working with Akshay Kumar Sir was truly amazing. Fortunately, we had shot this ad film a few days before the lockdown. And what’s really amusing and amazing to me is that in the ad I am referred to as the ‘Princess’, which also happens to be the name that my fans fondly gave me. So, there’s that special element to it.”

She further says, “ In fact it’s my first ad film, and I’m so glad that it was with none other than Akshay Sir. Who is known for his consistent super-hit box-office success records,  that too experimenting with diverse contrasting lead roles,  What a charismatic presence. Yet he is so extremely grounded. I would love to work with him again, in a Hindi movie. Hopefully very soon. By sheer coincidence, Akshay Sir’s  upcoming action-thriller movie is titled ‘Sooryavanshi’, which also happens to be my family surname,” she smiles with a rosy blush on her cheeks.

Since optimistic Digangana  has experienced the ‘Bigg Boss-9’ spacious house and garden-area confinement a few years ago, she was apparently aware, as to how to creatively reconcile with a ‘lockdown’ situation. .Minus the volatile showdown conflicts, of course. Elaborates the style-savvy ‘Hippi’ actress, “Although the reason for social lockdown is absolutely unfortunate, I think it’s given us all a lot of time to introspect. I’ve always been a creative person, and since I’m getting time being offshoots right now, I Am investing my time in catching up with my hobbies. I haven’t had the time to paint for a long time, and now that I do, I’ve created quite a few classy artworks. Am exploring my musical side as well.”

The multi-talented Digangana has even written stories and song about Covid-19

She says, “I have expressed my outlook on the current situation. Spending lots of ‘quality-time’ conversing with both my parents at home and on cell-phone with my outstation relatives,” shares Digangana

The actress who has been working in South Indian  big-banner  regional movies  is now discreetly gearing up to also feature in her fourth Hindi movie with a top-male star very soon.

Touted as the biggest relationship web series, Kehne Ko Humsafar Hain is based around a love entanglement between the three main characters of Rohit, Ananya, and Poonam portrayed by Ronit Roy, Mona Singh, and Gurdip Kohli respectively.

In the new season, Rohit will be seen adopting a carefree attitude in his life and becoming distant from all the other characters. After separating from Ananya, the show will see Rohit hit ground zero.

Talking about his experience of working on the three seasons of the show, Ronit says, “I would like to thank my fans for the success and appreciation that I have received for the first two seasons. Both the seasons rated ten times more than anything else that was on the internet at that point in time and I am really happy about that.”

“I still remember the first time when Ekta (Kapoor) narrated the basic plot, idea, and story, there was so much of enthusiasm in her and in between the narration how she beautifully points out the small quirks and traits about each character of the show. Eventually, I worked on that and incorporated it in my performance,” Ronit adds.

The sizzling third season is all set to release on the 6th of June, 12 noon on the ALTBalaji & ZEE5 OTT platforms!
