Single Living: Being with yourself.

Hello readers! Hope your day has, or is filled with lot’s of good vibes and positivity. Between my Thursday and Friday I went from being in the most negative mood ever to waking up the next morning feeling extremely rejuvenated. So what’s my secret?

Honestly I asked myself the same thing when I work up Friday morning. I looked at myself in the mirror, splashed my face with cold water and simply smiled at myself. Why do I feel so good when I went to sleep feeling like total crap? I had no emotional help from any other human being and nor did I indulge myself into any filmy things prior to falling asleep. How did this happen?

I think one thing I’ve learnt with time before living alone and currently living alone is to be okay to just be with yourself when your in public. I can spend an entire day with myself and be totally happy. I know in this world of chaos, technology and lot’s of stresses we always need someone to talk to, vent to and just tell everything to. But sometimes you have to talk to yourself and give yourself your own kind of advice. You have to be able to take walks alone, eat alone, shop alone, drive alone, and all the other things you would typically do with people.

To some this may sound very isolated, depressing or totally bonkers, but if you try it often, you will learn to feel something different in a good way and when you are with people you might end up creating a mental balance within yourself because now you are getting the best of both worlds.

I can’t deny the one person I definitely miss hanging out with on my day-to-day basis has to be my mom. But when I am alone all I think is, well she is too so its pretty much the only person I can call and bug and not think about her being busy which she probably is way more busier than me!

Hope you enjoyed this short ‘single living’ post. If you are enjoying these thoughts of mine leave a comment and tell me how you are able to relate or might try this piece of advice out!

Single Living: I think I have FOMO!

If I had to describe my life right now in one word it would be ‘bittersweet’.

Last weekend I escaped the small beach town and drove over to Charlotte, NC to soak up some buildings and city life. Don’t get me wrong, I love where I live right now, but this city girl needs her buildings and chaos once in awhile and it was truly the best timing for me to make this trip.

If you want to check out glimpses of my trip you can watch my Vlog right here!

Like every year around this time there are many events and holidays that come up. To list a few, Navratri, Garba, the NC State Fair, Diwali parties, International Fair, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and all the end of the year movies. I am a holiday junky and a sucker for attending all the events and parties associated with these holiday’s. The first time in my 22 years though, I am having to make decisions as to what to miss and what not to miss. It has been the hardest decision in my life (probably harder than any financial decisions I have had to make) and it is ripping me apart.

I have finally almost narrowed down what to attend and what not to attend, but it is seriously creating major FOMO (Fear of Missing Out) in me and it’s driving me crazy. But what I have realized the only perk to missing out on some of these events and moments, my bank account on the other hand is totally happy because well I’m saving some money.

As we get older we not only have to ‘adult’ but we have to miss some moments so in the future we can create even better moments. We have to compromise seeing certain people even if that includes your family. We even have to compromise seeing certain films…and this totally makes FOMO happen even more than needed.

While I continue my ‘single living’ lifestyle, I am currently counting down the days till I get to see my mom and celebrate Diwali at home with family and friends, plus Ranbir Kapoor for his new film Ae Dil Hai Mushkil!

I am learning new things everyday on this journey of mine and am simply happy I have the opportunity to still do all the wonderful things that come my way and still be able to share my story with you.

See You at the Movies!

All the #AeDilHaiMushkil updates for you!

There are just 15 days till Ae Dil Hai Mushkil releases in cinemas on October 28! If you’re behind on all the updates about the film, not to worry- I’ve got it all right here for you!

I obviously am stoked for the film because its directed by Karan Johar and it stars Ranbir Kapoor! But in additionally I am not just fan-girling over both of them at this point, I am just totally in love with everything I have seen about the film thus far.

Dharma Productions first began the Ae Dil Hai Mushkil marketing journey by releasing the teaser of the film. The teaser received 8 million views in a single day!

Followed by the teaser the title track of the film released on SaavnAudio track had 1 million stream-plays in a single day! Right after this, the video track of the title track was released…

Fans turned obsessed over the title track especially Arijit Singh’s voice!


But there’s more! Another sensual sufi-rock track was released after this! Bulleya sung by Amit Mishra and Shilpa Rao. The beautifully track of Bulleya is shot in picturesque locations, this music video captures the magical chemistry between Ranbir Kapoor and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan.

Then we FINALLY got to witness the most epic trailer of the year! Its full of love, friendship, heartbreak and so many more mixed unexplainable emotions! This might just be one Karan Johar’s best films ever…

The Ae Dil fun doesn’t stop here though! The team released a beautiful soulful track called Channa Mereya and it is truly one of the most beautiful songs my ears have ever touched.


Channa Mereya is the soul of Ae Dil Hai Mushkil music album. Karan Johar’s favorite song in the album, the lyrics are penned by Amitabh Bhattacharya, music by Pritam and sung by Arijit Singh.

And lastly as of today another new track from the film has released and it is probably my new favorite dance track! The Break Up Song is a quirky and fun dance number! It definitely has an ‘Kishore-Asha’ feel to the track and that’s probably why I am already so obsessed with it already!

One last thing you MUST check out! Check out my good friend Rome Chopra and renowned choreographer Kruti Shah in this dance cover of the song Ae Dil Hai Mushkil!

Ae Dil Hai Mushkil looks like its going to be a sensational film that will break screens! Karan Johar is definitely onto something new, different and never seen before- and we simply cannot wait! See you at the movies on October 28!

No Filmy Friday, but SO many Updates!

Hey everyone! Its been quite some time since I’ve had the chance to spill out my world of emotions and updates to you.

These days it seems I am wrapped in the world media and truly forget about my own little blog here. There have been recent days where I think about closing this blog down because I simply am unable to keep up…give me your thoughts whether I should or not!

Unfortunately I have to miss MS Dhoni this filmy Friday due to a new job I have taken up here in Wilmington and the commute home (Raleigh) will not be possible. BUT there are a lot of things I want to share with you.


Last Tuesday I released my first-ish rant kind of video. Check it out, hope you like it!


I got to interview India’s well known casting director Mukesh Chhabra and he retweeted my article!


On September 28 it was Ranbir Kapoor’s birthday and of course you all know how important he is to me and my life… anyways so I wrote an open letter to him on Urban Asian. Check it out right here:


There’s a new song out and I am more than positive it is my new ‘Kabira’ of the year. Funny thing is the song entails a very similar team as Kabira did. Channa Mereya is a new track from Ae Dil Hai Mushkil which stars Ranbir Kapoor and Anushka Sharma. The song is sung by Arijit Singh and composed by Pritam.

Seriously this track makes you feel every emotion similarly to Kabira.


While I stray away from posting about anything about religion & politics, I really would love for all of you to check out this short film by Kunal Kumar a very dear friend and co-worker of mine. The short film is called Islamaphobia. In today’s world it is really important for people to see that every member of the military represents and protects our freedom, so this short goes out to those who protect us each and every day.

Baar Baar Dekho – Review

The wait is over and I finally got to see Nitya Mehra’s debut directed film Baar Baar Dekho! The dual production film by Dharama Production and Excel Entertainment is definitely a film which gives you the chance to see life a bit differently for all of us.

If I rewind back to the 2010 film Anjaana Anjaani I remember watching the film in cinemas and walking out with my life motto to ‘live in the moment’. Ever since that film I have seem more select Hindi films portray this motto and these types of films are one of my favorites. Baar Baar Dekho similarly portrays this motto, but in the most beautiful breathtaking way possible.


The story of this film is fluid, easy to follow and well pieced together. Time oriented films can be quite tricky, but this one only tricked your mind the same way it did with Siddharth Malhotra’s character Jai Verma. The timeline kept me at edge and by the time intermission came I had a million mixed thoughts in my head and kept wanting to see more. The second half of the film I was full of all types of emotions and realizations. I was sucked into Nitya’s perception on time and life. I felt the pain Katrina Kaif’s character Diya Verma was experiencing. As time progressed, so did the well portrayed technology and lingo of talking, but not the way we live life because that will never change.

So if you haven’t guessed already I loved Baar Baar Dekho and it has such an important valuable lesson to convey to each one of us individually. If I give anymore of the film, then there’s not point in experiencing it yourself.

Each individual character big or small played their roles extremely well and had an important facet to the entire story itself. Of course our leads Katrina and Siddharth were exceptionally amazing. The duos chemistry held so much love you didn’t want to see them fall apart. They both as individuals really played their characters and not a moment did I think they were Kat and Sid, but Jai and Diya.

Ram Kapoor a divine actor, plays the role of Diya’s father, is seen in all sorts of roles added a hint of humor and personality to the film as always. Sarika also another extremely magnificent actress, plays the role as Jai’s mom, was an extremely important character to the story itself and played it well. Additionally a role that stood out to me the most was Taaha Shah! The young rising actor is of course extremely attractive, but also humorous. His role as Tarun (Jai’s brother) brings light to the film in many unexpected ways. I also couldn’t stop to notice Taaha’s amazing dancing skills in the song Nachde Ne Saare. Lastly Rohan Joshi and Sayani Gupta play a husband-wife role and as Jai’s friends. All of these characters were such important pieces to Jai’s puzzle and really created an impact on the film itself, along with Rajit Kapoor.


The cinematography and locations of the film were impeccable. While I am glad not too much focus was put on scenery, but it was a perfect balance between the two extremely attractive actors and the beautiful sights of ThailandGlasgow and Delhi. The visuals of time portrayed were one of my favorites and that comes to the very well done make-up for Sid’s character especially.

And lastly, the music… I don’t there’s much for me to say because we’ve all LOVED the music of Baar Baar Dekho since its release and we simply cannot stop listening to the entire album. I really choose one favorite track from the film, but can definitely say when I first heard the soundtrack Kho Gaye Hum Kahan by Jasleen Kaur Royal was the first track I fell in love with, followed by Nachde Ne SaareDariya and then Kaala ChashmaSau Asmaan and Teri Khair Mangdi too are beautiful tracks.

Baar Baar Dekho is a must watch film in cinemas and it surely will leave you with a larger thought on life in a positive aspect when you walk out of the theater.

Single Living: A Day of Reflection…

Today if someone asks me,

how are you feeling right now in this moment?

I’d have to simply reply with,


A New Girl in a City

And I am really glad to know that I would respond that way. But there are some random days in our lives where we are simply trying our all to be the happiest, or extremely positive…but something in the back of your head triggers and a person like myself simply goes lost in-thought and almost wants to separate myself away from all the people.

I am glad though that this all occurred as I made a short trip over to Southport, North Carolina today just a ferry ride away from where I am in Wilmington. Being on the ferry and walking through the extremely small town a million thoughts were floating through my head.

A part of me was feeling like a horrible person because I wasn’t really part of any of the conversations my friends were having, I was just occasionally budding in. A part of me was thinking about a script I was re-reading after awhile. And then a lot of my brain was thinking about ALL the thing I need to get done. Then I realized oh, “you’re turning a whole year older in less than two days.” Of course my mind panicked and the panic occurred on the ferry ride back home. So I shut my eyes and just listened to all the noises, conversations around me. Then I tuned all of it out, and then it felt like I cleared my brain out of all the junk mail and spam messages and simply thought about me.

The rest of my day consisted of watching YouTube videos, getting some school work done, eating, napping and just doing regular human things.

Now I’m sitting here at about 1 AM trying to shed a little thought to you.

Why did all this occur today. I’ve been doing well, and have had this extreme sense of positivity and happiness around me lately. And usually we turn into this weird bothered human because someone says one thing and your mind gets triggered. But I thought there is no need for me to freak out even when my brain freaks out. When your brain freaks out, listen to your heart, and when your heart isn’t able to response to the situation tune everything out and flush out all the spam from your brain and just focus on the moment in front of you.

6 Hindi films we CANNOT wait to see in the next four months!

Its already September and it already seems like we’re getting ready for the three major holidays: Halloween, Thanksgiving, & Christmas! BUT the year isn’t over yet and there are at least 6 good films you have to see in cinemas.

Baar Baar Dekho – Releasing September 9

I can’t wait for this film, and I really hope it turns out good! A few peers are a bit iffy about the new Siddharth Malhotra and Katrina Kaif film, but I personally think its going to be great. This is releasing this Friday, so stay tuned for my review of it this Filmy Friday!

MS Dhoni the Untold Story – Releasing September 30

Being a huge Sushant Singh fan, I definitely can’t wait for this once. The film being a biopic also tops it all, and I hope that this turns out to be one of the much loved biopics of the year.

Ae Dil Hai Mushkil – Releasing October 28

I’m going to be extremely bias and say the teaser looks EPIC! Others have this feeling its a Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna part two, but I’d like to think Karan Johar has something way different for us in-store. We’ll only know on October 28!

Rock On 2 – Releasing November 11

The first video teaser of the film is releasing tomorrow! Here’s another personal favorite I can’t wait for as the first Rock On was such an exquisite different and beautiful film.

Dear Zindagi – Releasing November 25

We can’t really say a lot about the film yet, other than it stars Shah Rukh Khan and Alia Bhatt. And well that itself is enough for us to get excited for.

Befikre – Releasing December 9

Honestly, I just can’t contain myself for this one. And this is me giving Aditya Chopra and last call to make it or break it. I am hoping Aditya Chopra brings the essence of Yash Raj in the film Befikre which stars the much loved Ranveer Singh and Vaani Kapoor.

So get ready, here are at least 6 good films we cannot wait for! Tell us which one you can’t wait to see.
