Actor Sakshi Tanwar decides to move behind the camera, is now Creative Consultant for Samman: Ek Adhikar

For all those who have been wondering what Sakshi Tanwar is up to these days, here is the dope. Saakshi, who had disappeared from the television scene after playing Parvati in Kahaani Ghar Ghar Kii, has moved ahead in her professional life. She has become the Creative Consultant of the show, Samman: Ek Adhikar.

Interestingly, the channel which broadcasts Samman…, has stopped most of its other weekly shows. Naturally, the TRPs of Samman Ek Adhikar are satisfying enough for the channel to have retained it as one of their few shows.

A source (name withheld on request) from the production house, says, “Sakshi’s presence on the show is one of the main reasons why Samman… is doing well. Her degree of involvement in the show is very high. Sakshi is primarily responsible for the twists and turns in the storyline. She also visits the sets very often.”

Associate Creative of Samman Ek Adhikar, Lavesh Ahairajani confirmed the news. He says, “As the head of the creative team on our show, Sakshi brings in a lot of energy. She is the answer to all our day-to-day problems. She has even come up with very catchy dialogue on the spur of the moment.”

Despite repeated attempts, Sakshi Tanwar remained unavailable for comment.

Sonam Kapoor

Recently, Sonam Kapoor did her good deed when she shot for an ad for diabetes awareness which says: Diabetes is a silent killer, watch out. What is not known is that Sonam is insulin-resistant. Who knew that the sweet actress would have to swallow such a bitter truth?

She happened to discover this only last year by a stroke of chance. Her official spokesperson confirmed that Sonam is insulin-resistant. She said there are no symptoms of discomfort. She has to take regular medication for some time. Insulin resistance is a condition in which the body produces insulin but does not use it properly. Insulin, a hormone made by the pancreas, helps the body use glucose for energy.

Dr Rajiv Kovil, who is a diabetes specialist, said, “Most obese people are insulin resistant. Insulin manufactured in your body does not act upon you. Insulin resistance is a basic underlying defect which can progress into diabetes, obesity, metabolic syndrome and polycystic ovary syndrome.”

However, it is admirable that Sonam has put her heart into promoting the cause of diabetes awareness.
