Simple ways to beat office stress

Get organized

Arnav Singh Raizada believes that planning work is extremely important. He says, “Doing things in a disorganized way disturbs your work and creates stress. Moreover, you start feeling nervous about pending and forthcoming work.” He suggests making a time table and getting organized.

STAR Plus' leading men share their style mantra

Arnav opts for suits in dark colours

I prefer wearing formal clothes. I like wearing dark coloured suits with a crisp shirt. Sometimes I forego the outer jacket and simply wear the suit vest. I go for sober coloured shirts like black, white, grey and navy blue with my suit.

Nandkishore’s snazzy jackets

My style is wearing something comfortable like T-shirts and jackets. I love wearing jackets and I have them in almost all colours. I think whatever you wear, the most important thing is to be comfortable in it and carry it off well.

"Rituals hold a lot of importance for me" says Khushi

Hi friends, hope all of you are fine. Today I would like to share with you the importance of rituals and their meaning for me. Rituals, for me hold a lot of significance.

KhushiFor many people rituals are just something they follow to make their family happy but I believe that each and every ritual holds a special message and meaning. That is also the reason why I wanted to remarry Arnavji, this time following all the rituals, right from shagun, roka, sagai and mehendi to the pheras. There are so many pre and post marriage rituals and I love all of them. It begins with shagun where the groom's family comes to the home of the bride and gives her gifts as a token of their acceptance. The sagai is special as it is a formal commitment of the two people who are getting married. The rings exchanged in this ceremony are generally worn on the fourth finger as that vein goes directly to the heart. 

These customs and rituals are also a lot of fun as they are accompanied by naach gaana during the mehendi and sangeet functions. Most girls dream of celebrating each of these rituals right from the time they are young kids and wait in anticipation for their wedding day. Family, relatives and friends from everywhere join the occasion and it becomes even more special. Beautiful and elaborate clothes are worn to mark these rituals so that everyone feels happy, homes are decorated with flowers and lights so that there is a festive atmosphere all around. And of course, sweets which are part of all happy occasions are in abundance at weddings.

Finally the actual marriage ritual of the pheras symbolises the promises that a husband and wife make to each other. The seven promises are the most special as they legitimize a marriage. Another important ritual for me is sharing love. Whether it is before or after marriage is a person's choice, but it is definitely of utmost importance for married couples to be happy in their future life.

I hope you enjoyed reading my blog, as much as I enjoyed sharing it with you. I will be back soon with more. Bye for now!

Unlike his 'angry young man' image on screen in one of STAR Plus' most popular show Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon?, Arnav Singh Raizada has also a funny side to him. Haan baba haan, sachchi!

If our little birdie's chirps are true, apna Arnav loves chit chatting with the production guys on the sets. In contrast to his dishoom-dishoom image on screen, he in fact loves joking around and believes in having fun while working. Our khabru tells us that staying relaxed and being in a jovial mood in between shots helps Arnavji focus better on his scenes. We love!

As for Khushi and Payal, they play Ek Hazaaron Mein Meri Behna Hai to the hilt  when not shooting. Joint to the hip, Khushi and the very bubbly Payal get along well and are always seen indulging in some girly talk. Khushi, in particular loves being catty! No baba, not that way. A cat keeps circling the sets like a faithful follower and Khushi loves petting it. MeWoW...

While all the youngsters have fun, sabki Dadi is seen reading her lines sincerely in between the shots. Haan Dadiji, kya karein ab in bachon ka?
