Ace photographer Atul Kasbekar once mentioned that Naga girl ‘Ketholeno Kense Vihienuo’ has what it takes to make it big in the world of modeling. “She is so easy to shoot with,” he said. “She is extremely beautiful, fresh and exotic. She is a delicate darling,” is how Kasbekar described Leno who was entering the modeling world at that time. “She will become a top model one day,” he had said at that time.
We all know that people from the hills hardly exercise and we eat a lot of rice. For me, to be a model, that was a difficult part. To eat a lot of rice was definitely hard but over the years, I have realised that, you just need to push yourself, eat whatever you want and exercise a lot but of course try to eat healthy, because there are a lot of healthy options that we can eat. So now, my focus is on eating healthy and exercising a lot.
When Virat Kohli got the Arjuna Award in 2013, I was there at the Rashtrapati Bhavan and he told me then next time I would be receiving Droancharya and he would be applauding from the audience. Rajkumar Sharma got the Dronacharya Award in 2016.
I still remember the day when a 10-year-old Virat came to my coaching camp. Today as an Indian captain when he comes for a net session, I don’t find any difference. He is still the same old little Virat for me. Nothing has changed for him
While being part of Ranji Trophy playing team at Mumbai, one evening, he returned to the hotel with his hair nicely cropped. He has spotted a fancy hair salon close by and given himself a new look. ‘How is it?’ he asked excitedly. ‘Not bad, you look like a Chikoo (Sapodilla),” joked the assistant coach standing there. The name struck. Chikoo. Virat didn’t mind it all.
Virat Kohli’s Cricket Coach Rajkumar Sharma answered the bell and found Vikas (Kohli’s elder brother) at the door. His brother’s arrival at his house so early in the day was cause for concern. Vikas stepped into the house, dialed a number and handed his cell phone to Raj Kumar. ‘Happy teacher’s Day Sir,’ said Virat, even as Vikas thrust something into Rajkumar’s palms — a bunch of keys. A gleaming Skoda Rapid was parked at the gate — a gift from Virat to his mentor. “It was not merely because he had gifted me the car. It was because of his emotional touch to the process of reminding me how much he treasured our association, and valued the role of a teacher in his life.”
Even as a child, the first thing that struck me about Shashi (Kapoor) uncle were his good looks. Boy, how handsome was he! I also remember watching Manmohan Desai’s ‘Suhaag’ when I was around nine years old. Though I cannot recall the exact scene, I knew I was disturbed when he was attacked by Amitabh Bachchan with a knife. When I realised it was a fake one, I heaved a sigh of relief
