Donal fears reading ‘Ek Deewaana Tha’ script at night

Mumbai, Oct 5 : Actress Donal Bisht, the female protagonist of forthcoming thriller show “Ek Deewaana Tha”, has stopped reading scripts at night due to the fear of the unknown.

“This is the first time I am working in a different TV series such as ‘Ek Deewaana Tha’. The creative team has considered all aspects to make this show a wholesome entertaining experience for audiences,” Donal said in a statement.

She added: “The script has an interesting mix of suspense, thrill and romance which makes it a unique proposition. Owing to the thrill component, multiple sequences of the show highlight my encounters with a supernatural entity.

“As a kid I used to read scary novels and that instilled a fear of the paranormal in me, reading the script at night shook me to the core, wherein I have made a habit of reading the scripts during daytime now.”

The show, which will air on Sony Entertainment Television, also stars Namik Paul and Vikram Singh Chauhan.

No art form continues without the society: Zakir Khan

Comedian Zakir Khan has stressed on the need for freedom of speech for comedians, and says people should support the art form.

“I think freedom of speech to a comedian should be equal to a politician. When it comes to clean and bad comedy, people don’t understand this about humour that it’s an emotion. If according to my life experience, I found something funny, it’s my perspective,” Zakir said in a statement.

“People can listen to it if they want to. Every art form is a reflection of the society. If any art form is crossing the line, one should check the society. If your comedy is not clean, understand that it’s the society that is not clean. No art form continues without the society,” he added.

Zakir is a trained sitarist, a musician and a comedian.

At the moment, he is seen as a mentor in “The Great Indian Laughter Challenge”, which is aired on Star Plus.
