Alia Bhatt and Deepika Padukone are Hard to Mimic, Says Jamie Lever



News18 Logo

Comedian Jamie Lever has been entertaining her fans with her funny videos of mimicking different actors and actresses. But she finds it really hard to mimic Alia Bhatt and Deepika Padukone.

“I was trying to mimic Alia Bhatt and Deepika Padukone, it was not coming right. But I will crack it one day, I will do it for sure. I like to try new things and try copying new actors and actresses. I try to experiment all the time. Yeah, I find Alia Bhatt and Deepika Padukone really hard to mimic but I will do it someday,” she tells IANSlife.

Jamie retaliates that male actors are difficult to mimic. “I try to mimic lot of new actors and actress. I think male actors are obviously difficult to do, you cannot get the voice right, but you can get the mannerism and body language right. So heroes are difficult to mimic,” says Jamie who has associated with Godrej L’Affaire web-series #LiveItUp 2021.

The web-series has been conceived as a quirky courtroom theatrical in which viewers will see the year 2020, played by Jamie, put on trial for the disruptions it caused in our lives this year from travel and food to parenting, grooming and various other nuances of lifestyle.

Asked who has been her inspiration, Jamie replies: “I am really inspired by the female actress-comedian Carol Burnett from Hollywood and she had her own show in 1950’s. She is someone who use to do impersonations, comedy sketches, she had her own show on television where she would sing, do parody and things like that. I really take a lot of inspiration from her and I feel like if I ever have to have a show it will be something that. Carol Burnett is just phenomenal and you should look her up as she is just amazing.”

I’m Following a Weekly 24 Hour Fast: Anil Kapoor Reveals His Fitness Secrets, Favourite Cuisine



News18 Logo

Bollywood veteran Anil Kapoor reveals he has different foods for different moods. The 64-year-old says he loves to try different cuisines and special items from every country he visits. In an exclusive interview, Anil talks about all things food.

Q: What’s your favourite cuisine?

A: I have different foods for different moods. I don’t have a favourite cuisine as such really. A good meal is a good meal regardless of its shape, colour or form.

Q: Where is the food capital of India, according to you?

A: Aamchi Mumbai! I might be biased, but there’s no doubt that the food culture in Mumbai has evolved a lot over the past decade… with so many great new restaurants and talented chefs, it’s a haven for all foodies now.

Q: Do you try local food of places you travel to?

A: I love to try different cuisines and special items from every country and whenever I visit the place again I know my favourites! My manager Jalal conducts proper research on the famous foods of every country/city we visit and we make it a point to try at least a couple of the items, if not all!

Q: Do you eat fast food? How often and how do you compensate?

A: I do eat junk food! I love my burgers and fries every once in a while. My daughter Rhea often whips up some great food for my cheat days. As for how I compensate, I read a quote a while back which said you cannot overstrain a diet… and I couldn’t agree more. If I have a great meal, I always balance it out with a great workout.

Q: Do you follow a strict diet?

A: I do follow a good diet that works for me, but I keep switching it up. Currently for example, I am following a weekly 24 hour fast. I’m not sure how long I will do this, but it’s working for me so far. My diet also depends on how heavy or light my workday is… Honestly, it’s because I keep changing things up that I can sustain it for longer… Cheat days are very important to break the monotony. In fact during the lockdown, we had a designated cheat day where Rhea would cook some delicious food and I would eat to my heart’s content! Now too we have our occasional binge days and I look forward to it!

Q: Do you also cook sometimes?

A: I don’t usually cook but I would love to if I had the time and I’m sure I would enjoy it as well.
