Was tough to revisit my dark chapters: Sunny Leone

Actress Sunny Leone, who is gearing up for the final season of the web series “Karenjit Kaur – The Untold Story of Sunny Leone”, says she often broke into tears while filming it as she had to go down the memory lane and revisit some dark chapters of her life.


“It was certainly not easy for me to revisit some of the chapters of my life that are dark, that I wanted to believe were a nightmare that which would get over soon. When my mother passed away, my father was diagnosed with cancer and within some time, he also passed away.


I got married, got an invitation for an Indian TV show…there was too much happening very fast,” Sunny said in Mumbai.

 


“Some of the situations were hurtful and I never ever wanted to revisit those memories ever again.


During the shooting, I broke down so badly. Seeing me breaking down like that, (my husband) Daniel Weber felt terrible and helpless because he cannot fix anything of those chapters of my life. Losing my parents was terrible,” the Indo-Canadian actress said.


Her web series “Karenjit Kaur – The Untold Story of Sunny Leone” will start streaming on ZEE5 OTT platform from Friday.


Sunny forayed into Indian showbiz with television show “Bigg Boss”. Sunny also appeared in films like ‘Jism 2’, ‘Ek Paheli Leela’, ‘Raees’ and ‘One Night Stand’. “I think now I know the world of Bollywood a little better. The first few films in my initial years were like being in a Bollywood boot camp.


There is so much chaos but the whole system is like a well-oiled machine because somehow the job gets done here. When I came and saw that at the beginning of the day we plan something and that gets changed every now and then, I used to freak out.


“But when I look at the whole matter in a calmer way now, we are executing everything that we plan initially. This place is fascinating. I learnt one very important thing here – ‘Thand pao, sab aaram se hota hai (Be cool, everything happens at its pace),'” said the actress who is planning to start her first ever film project under her production house. Without divulging much, she said: “I will make an announcement of the film very soon.” Has she learnt the language Hindi better now? “Well yes, I can speak in Hindi and understand the language.


I have an American accent, but trust me I am very ‘desi’,” Sunny said with a laugh. Asked about the most difficult thing that she has faced in India, Sunny pointed out that it’s the hierarchy in the society. “For me, there is no hierarchy in my head because I do not come from that upbringing.
But on a film set, such things are followed.


It is the same in the society also for me. Unless your actions say that you are a horrible person, you are equal to me — whether you are the lower end or the higher level of the hierarchy. I am not complaining about anything.


It is just a practice. “Since there is a cultural difference, Daniel and I went through a phase to learn, how to approach people, how much to talk, where to draw the line… It was basically about understanding the cultural differences,” shared the actress, who is a mother of three.

How to remove annoying advertisements from Xiaomi phones running MIUI 10

The Kashmir Monitor

Published

on

Xiaomi is known for its budget smartphones that offer high specifications at attractive prices but it is also known for its advertisement and push notifications that come along with it. The pre-loaded apps in the phone not only show advertisements while running, but also send promotional messages via notifications.

Under the settings of each of these apps, the “recommendations” are turned on, which is basically Xiaomi’s name for advertisement. Fortunately, Xiaomi has kept the option to turn off these recommendations but the process is quite frustrating as there is not a master switch to turn all of it in an instant.

You have to go to each of the apps showing “recommendations” and turn them off one by one. Follow this guide to turn off these push notifications and in-app advertisement in the latest MIUI 10 skin from Xioami.

 

Turn off msa and personalised ads in MIUI 10

Before starting to disable the advertisement in the MIUI 10, first of all, connect your phone to the internet and go to Settings > Additional Settings > Authorization & revocation. Now turn off the “msa“. You will have to wait for 10 seconds before you can tap Revoke.

The revoke option does not turn off easily. When we tried to turn it off, the system showed an error at least four-five times but it was turned off eventually. Now go back and tap on Privacy (Settings > Additional Settings > Privacy) and go to “Ad services” and turn this off. Now you need to go to each system app, find
“recommendations” and turn them off.

Disable personalised ads in Xiaomi devices running MIUI 10.

Turn off advertisement in File Manager in MIUI 10

*Open Mi File Manager

*Tap the hamburger icon on the top-left and go to About

*Turn off Recommendations

Turn off advertisements in Mi Cleaner in MIUI 10

*Open the MIUI Cleaner app

*Tap the brush icon on the top right corner

*Tap the gear icon and turn off the recommendations on the next screen

Turn off advertisement in Mi Music app in MIUI 10

*Open the Mi Music app

*Tap on the hamburger icon on the top left corner

*Tap on Settings > Advanced Settings

*Find “Receive recommendations” at the bottom part and turn it off

Disable ads in Mi Video app and other in MIUI 10.

Turn off advertisement in Mi Video app in MIUI 10

*Open the Mi Video app

*Tap on the hamburger icon on the top left corner

*Tap on Settings

*Turn off “Online recommendations” and “Push notifications”

Turn off advertisement in Security

*Go to Settings > System app settings > Security

*Turn off recommendations

Turn off advertisement in Mi Browser

*Open the Browser

*Go to Settings > Privacy & security

*Turn off recommendations

Also, go to Advanced and tap on “Set start page“. Now enter any URL you would like to visit when you choose to open the Mi Browser app. It will remove the default start page which shows promotional content.

Turn off advertisement in Folders in MIUI 10

If you have made app folders ion your phone, you will need to turn off “recommendations” for all these folders. Tap the name of the folder the same way you tap to rename it. You will see a tab for Promoted apps, turn this off.

If you happen to have installed an app that is showing you unwanted spammy notifications, as a bonus tip, we are letting you inform how to shut it up. Go to Settings > Notifications & status bar > App notifications. You will see all the apps with a switch before them to turn off notifications.

Google Stadia controllers won’t be Bluetooth compatible at launch

The Kashmir Monitor

Published

Google vice president and general manager Phil Harrison speaks during a Google keynote address announcing a new video gaming streaming service named Stadia that attempts to capitalize on the company’s cloud technology and global network of data centers, at the Gaming Developers Conference in San Francisco, California, U.S., March 19, 2019.

Google Stadia controllers would not work with Bluetooth headsets at launch, rather they would connect directly to the Stadia server using Wi-Fi to help with the problem of lag while gaming.

“The Stadia controller comes with a headphone jack for wired audio, but won’t support Bluetooth audio at launch in November. If you’re playing on the computer or a Pixel phone you can connect the BT headset to it directly and use it in Stadia,” Andrey Doronichev, Stadia Product Director, wrote on social news site Reddit AMA.

 

For Bluetooth connectivity, the Stadia product page says, “Product contains Bluetooth Classic radio. No Bluetooth Classic functionality is enabled at this time.

Bluetooth Classic functionality may be implemented at a later date.”

Google has confirmed that Stadia would be available from November in 14 countries, including the US, the UK, and Canada. There’s no confirmation yet about when other areas and territories will get it.

Google Stadia is Google’s vision of the future of gaming — a cloud-based service available on a range of devices, not just high-end gaming PCs and consoles.

Making Golmaal films is my duty: Rohit Shetty

Filmmaker Rohit Shetty feels that his successful franchise ‘Golmaal’ has become a household brand, so much so that it has become his duty to make a new film in the series every now and then.

“I feel making ‘Golmaal’ has now become my duty. It’s not my product anymore. It has become a household brand, and I have to just make a new ‘Golmaal’ film every now and then, and offer it to the audience.

The characters of ‘Golmaal’ are simple and happy. They don’t question and analyse everything. Feeling happy is good for health, and ‘Golmaal’ lets the audience do that,” said Rohit, at an interaction with the press at a book launch in Mumbai.

 

The first ‘Golmaal’ film released in 2006 and was declare a hit, and till date there have been four films in the franchise, over 13 years.

Rohit is right now busy filming the Akshay Kumar-Katrina Kaif starrer ‘Sooryanvanshi’. “There is still a lot of time for ‘Sooryavanshi’ to release. It is scheduled for next year,” he said.

Rohit said owing to the needless running-around of modern life, simplicity and peace of mind is missing among us.
