THE BETTER PART OF THE SERIES IS MANSI

SKILLS FOR THOSE BEAUTIFUL SHANKS!
INTERVIEW BY SUDHAKAR JHA | PHOTOGRAPHY BY LUV ISRANI
FHM: Hi, Mansi. What are you up to
these days?
Mansi: Up to something really good Id say
(laughs)! Of late, I was house hunting, so there
were some hectic days!

How different do you find working in a


web series than regular TV soaps?
Its the same for me. Both mediums involve
acting and I love to act. I feel that TV is still
stuck to the saas bahu drama. But in web
series, we get to play different real life roles
and it involves real life situations which is
quite refreshing.

In Big F you are playing an aspiring


footballer. Do you like football? Whos
your favourite player?
To tell you the truth I played football for the
first time while shooting for BIG F (haha). Its
a difficult but interesting sport. I got the best
tan of my life (haha). I loved playing football
and it was really good to portray the role of a
Haryanvi girl who fights against the society to
pursue her dream of becoming a footballer.
My all-time favourite is David Beckham.

Do you have an account on Netflix or


Amazon Prime? What series are you
watching these days?
I have an account on Netflix and Hotstar. Im
a diehard Game of Thrones fan and
desperately waiting for the next season. Im
currently hooked on to This Is Us on Hotstar.
If you guys have time, do watch it.

We definitely will. Why do you think


Chandigarh doesnt have sector 13?
Maybe the Chandigarh administration was
really inspired with aircraft manufacturers,
even they dont have row number 13 in any
aircrafts (laughs). You know I think that they
just didnt want to give any property or space
to ghosts for free (haha).

Being a 90s kid what do you miss in


this decade?

RAPID FIRE
I desperately miss the simplicity of life. Our
lives are getting more and more complex
every day with so many new gadgets coming
around. Our lives are now surrounded by so

PIGEON SAYS, LETS
GUTARGU BUDDY.
OR LETS BE BIRDS
WITH BENEFITS.
What did you study? Do you like
reading books?
I studied commerce in high school and
then graduated in history and political
science. After that theatre and acting
completely took over my heart and
brain. I like to read a lot of fiction
novels.

What is the weirdest sexual


fantasy that youve heard of?
(Haha) You know I read somewhere
that a couple wanted to make out in
their parents bed. Weird, wasnt it?

Yeah, weve heard worse. What


does a guy need to do to spend
an evening with you?
He should be able to impress me with
his humour and wit. There should be
something sexy about him that
attracts me to spend time with him.

What are the things that youre


addictive to? Chocolates and
teddy bears dont count.
(Laughs) Chocolate and teddy bears
will be the last things on my list. Im
addicted to my work and watching
movies or TV series.

Whats your weakness that your


man has to cope with?
My weakness can be that I dont admit
to my mistakes. But Im sure all girls
do that.

If you were a fruit, what would


you have liked to be? Why?
Umm I would love to be grapes. Im
both sweet and sour in real life, just
like grapes.

What do you think a male pigeon


tells her female counterpart
before making love?
(Haha) I think the male pigeon says,
lets gutargu buddy. Or lets be birds
with benefits.

Whats your secret wish?


Let that be a secret! May be when the
wish is fulfilled, I can tell you about it.

5 QUESTIONS
?
FOR YOUR

TRAINER
DO YOU FOLLOW YOUR GYM
TRAINER LIKE A SHEEP? WELL,
LEANDI VAN ZYL, SPORTS
SCIENTIST AT PROSPORT
FITNESS CENTRE THINKS ITS
IMPORTANT TO ASK QUESTIONS
FOR YOUR BENEFIT.

G
etting to the gym can be hard enough with all
the time constraints in your everyday lives like
traffic, work and spending time with our
families getting in the way. When you finally
get to the gym it feels like a victory, however the one
hour spent in the gym is hardly enough in order to be
healthy for the 8 hours that you sit every day. It is
important to change your lifestyle, especially when you
are not at the gym to see the benefits of training. Here
are some questions that you need to ask your trainer
so that you get the most out of your exercise sessions.

1 WHAT TO EAT BEFORE AND AFTER TRAINING?


This will greatly depend on the type of exercise
programme you follow, the intensity of the
exercises and your goals. For example, if you want
to lose weight and your instructor has included
cardiovascular exercise as your programme of the
day, it is best to exercise in a fasting state, early in
the morning. This is because when the body is
fasting it starts using fat stores as fuel for the
exercise. Another example is when your goal is
building muscle. Here you need to consume a
proper meal which includes protein and
carbohydrates, two hours before you go to the
gym. Right before the workout, have a couple of
sips of protein shake. If you dont take protein
supplements, having some nuts or beans before a
workout will do the job too. After your workout, be
sure to drink the rest of the protein shake or
consume a meal rich in protein.

WHAT SHOULD BE YOUR IDEAL HEART RATE FOR WHAT QUANTITY OF WATER SHOULD YOU CONSUME AND THE
A SESSION? DURATION YOU SHOULD SLEEP FOR?
Heart rate is a very important measure of These will also depend on the type of exercise,
intensity during training, therefore ask your the intensity of the programme, the location
gym trainer what your ideal heart rate for whether outdoors or indoors as well as the
the session has to be. Heart rate can vary duration of the workout session. Programmes that

muscle. However, research suggests that
engaging in exercise for one hour a day
becomes useless if you sit for more than six
hours a day. This means that if you are not active
during the most part of the day all the benefits
from training for that one hour is lost. In order to
reach your goal quicker you have to stay active
throughout the day hence, the most important
question to ask your fitness professional is what
to do when you are not training. Here a standing
desk can come in handy to burn those extra
calories. Another tip is to walk to colleagues who
sit in the same office, instead of sending emails,
taking the stairs to different offices and getting
up every hour for five minutes and walking
around. Since most jobs require you to sit for
most of the time, make sure that your sitting
posture is proper. Sitting for long with the wrong
posture can cause a lot of back pain. Always
make sure that you have a good chair, that your
forearms are in line with the table and arm
handles and that your neck is straight. In order to
prevent back pain make sure you do regular core
exercises while training.

5
WHAT ARE THE VARIATIONS TO YOUR PROGRAMME?
Ask your trainer to vary your programme. Gym
programmes can sometimes get very repetitive
and mundane and that usually makes people
lose interest in training. Adding variations or
completely changing them can light up the spark
to train again. The body loves change so keep
challenging yourself and ask your trainer to
challenge you. Ask him/her to design
programmes such as strength with power,
strength training in a circuit training format or
HIIT instead of cardiovascular training.

Exercising is a crucial part of staying healthy,


and exercising regularly with a trainer can be
hugely beneficial to your health. However, many
people dont fully utilise their trainers by asking
them relevant questions. Asking the above basic
questions will help your trainer design a more
customised programme for you. You will see
more benefits from your time at the gym, as well
as see and feel better when your body changes.

think that would be a perfect date. An
adventurous day would sum up my
date with the guy.

Could you describe your most


memorable date for us?
I love the kind of dates where things
just take their own course. You know
the one where nobodys trying to
impress each other. Talking on the
phone for hours and taking a walk on
the beach also turn out to be quite a
memorable evening!

Has a girl ever hit on you? We


would like to know the details
No, never (laughs). I think I impress
men more than women.

Would you rather get drunk in a


party or read a novel to take a
break from work?
Neither! I would rather go on a
vacation to some unknown place. I
love quiet places!

Are you a fan of pickup lines?


I like the smart ones or the ones that
make me laugh.

I HAVE MADE LOVE AT


DIFFERENT PLACES
BUT IM STILL
LOOKING FOR THAT
CRAZY PLACE!
44 May 2017
Whats the silliest pick up line a
guy has used to win your
attention?
It wasnt actually a pickup line, but the
guy was trying too hard and Ive to
give it to him for that. A guy
approached me at a garba function
and said, You dance pretty well.
Would you please teach me too?

Whats the craziest place you ever


made love at?
I have made love at different places
but Im still looking for that crazy
place (haha).

Whats that thing you did in the


past that you wish you could
undo?
Oh, damn! I have done a lot of things,
but sometimes I wish that I hadnt met
some people.

What quirky habit do you have?


I think I dont have any quirky habit
as such.

Is there any habit that youd like to


get rid of?
Im very short tempered. I wish I could
remain calm in certain situations.

If you could change two things


about yourself, what would they
be?
I would want to give up on anger. I
really have to stop getting angry on
people. And secondly, I get extremely
restless. If I could meet a genie, I
would ask for these two wishes!

May 2017 45
If you could jump into a pool of
something, what would it be?
Wow! A pool full of chocolate and
marshmallows would be so satisfying!

What are the things that attract you


in men?
Men who smell great, who make me
laugh and guys who are not afraid to
be themselves. I would like someone
who would pull a chair and open the
door. A chivalrous and well-mannered
guy always attract me.

And what are the turn-offs?


I just tick off guys who are show offs
and liars from my list.

What do you think you look the


sexiest in?
I think a backless, well-fitted dress
and a saree make me look really sexy.

Whats the sexiest dress you have


owned?
Its a silver coloured backless dress
that fits me like a dream. I have this
dress for seven years now and I still fit
into it. It feels all the more special.

Do you like to experiment under


the sack?
Yes, of course I do. Life would be so
mundane without it, right?

So how would rate your


lovemaking kills on the scale of 0
to 10?
100! If you doubt it, just ask my
partner!

If you had to choose between food


and sex, what would you choose?
Food, anytime! Im a big foodie and a
complete dessert person. I think I have
sweet teeth!

Whats your favourite cuisine?


What place would you recommend
for it?
I love sushi! There is a restaurant
called Umame in south Mumbai that
serves great food. It is a great place to
have a martini and sushi.

How soon are we gonna see you


on the silver screen?
Very soon. I wont reveal the details,
but yeah, this year for sure!

RAPID FIRE
SCIENCE OR ARTS? HALLOWEEN OR COLD OR HOT? GANGNAM STYLE TOM OR JERRY?

always say beauty is skin deep. that she wasnt this hot when she started
modelling. I have worked very hard on myself
to get fit. And if you too want to tick every

#2 box of the perfect body, get up and hit the


gym NOW!

TO LOOK LIKE DISHA PATANI


Ever since weve seen her asking for Sachins
autograph in MS Dhoni - The Untold Story, weve
wanted her to be by our side. She thinks that there
are only three things that make her look the way she
looks. Exercise, healthy food and a lot of water.
Yeah, right! Weve tried doing that and we still end
up looking like a stout.

#4
TO BE ABLE TO PASS ON
THAT CHOCOLATE CAKE
WITHOUT REGRETS
Chocolate is something that can get
people weak on their knees. But this is
where you have to show your patience.
Chocolate is Dishas favourite and she
does have a crazy sweet tooth syndrome,
but she has learnt to pass it without
repenting about it. If Disha can do it, we
are sure that you can, too.

52 May 2017
#5
TO NOT ALWAYS WEAR BLACK
Black makes everything more subtle and classy. But
black also makes look people less chubby. Yeah,
thats right! There is some science behind it. (Lets
not go into the details. Why dont you Google it
instead) Disha, however, feels that you should enjoy
wearing all the colours and dress according to your
body type.

#6
TO NOT STAND IN THE SAME POSE
( WHICH MAKES YOU LOOK THIN)
IN FRONT OF THE CAMERA
Yeah, we have seen girls trying 100 poses for that
perfect picture. First turning left, click, delete!
Then turning right and repeat! We all have that one
friend who is never happy with her photos. Disha
suggests yall to keep playing with different angles.
It looks natural and fluid. Posing the same way to
get a perfect photo will work some times, but in the
long run it will look very monotonous.

#7
TO SAY HELL YEAH FOR A POOL-SIDE PARTY
Summer and water go hand in hand. And the last
time we attended a pool party, we ended up with a
lot of memories that has kept us waiting for an invite
again. Disha too loves water! And says that you
should let go off your inhibitions and just enjoy the
party.

#8
TO NOT BE RECOGNISED BY FORMER CLASS-
MATES/OLD FRIENDS AT COMMON PLACES
We had a friend in school who we all used to call fat
ass prick. We now realise our mistake of body
shaming him. But when we recently met at the
school reunion, he had turned into a beast. And
thats all right, because everyone looks different.
From how you would look during your school days,
its very natural with the course of time to change.
But change for good and surprise your friends the
next time you meet.

#9
TO THROW ON THAT PENCIL SKIRT
AND LOOK SMOKIN HOT
Pencil skirt is our all-time favourite. It is the most
distracting thing ever made by mankind. Disha
agrees with us and adds that its her go-to dress for
summer. Shes also promised to attend our next
party in her favourite skirt from her closet.

TO HAVE 5K MARATHON CERTIFICATES IN
YOUR CUPBOARD
We all know that running is the best exercise. And
even if you are a lazy bum, your athlete friends must
have challenged you for a 5k marathon for sure. This
is the time to show them that you can do it. And it
takes about 2 months to prepare for a 5k marathon.
Just get started and within a year or two, youll have
a cupboard full of awards!

#11
TO STOP SAYING THAT I HAVE A
FAMILY PACK
There are people who have named their paunch
family pack abs. Wed rather suggest you to do
some extra crunches and cut on all the aerated
drinks and processed food. Soon you will see your
family vanishing and there will be a new and fitter
you. And you are gonna thank us later for this
advice. So better start running, dude!

#12
TO BE THE GO-TO PERSON FOR
FITNESS ADVICES
You know that you have achieved your target when
people start taking advices from you. It makes you
feel that you have done something right about your
body. Isnt that reason enough to get started?

TO JOIN SPARTA, IF YOU WANT TO

the abdomen just like a dream. And

screamed, This is Sparta. Disha
exercises because she loves being
strong and fit. And if ever there was an
application form to enter the Spartan
army, she assures us to be one of the
first applicants.

#16
JUST ANOTHER REASON TO DOWNLOAD
SHAPE OF YOU
Oh, this song has been on loop everywhere these
days. The peppy beats and the lyrics are just amazing.
There is one more reason Disha has downloaded the
song and that is to prepare a fabulous dance routine
around it. We are hooked to her social media account
to see it (Wink! Wink!).

#17
TO HAVE MORE CHEAT DAYS THAN FAT DAYS
Cheat days are very important when you are dieting
and exercising. And more so when youre a complete
foodie like Disha ( yes, she claims to be one). Cheat
days keep you away from craving all the junk food
throughout the week, and keeps you motivated and
you exercise harder to look forward to eat your heart
out on your cheat day, without feeling guilty.

#18

#19
TO SPEND TIME WITH YOURSELF
AND NO ONE ELSE
If you are a shy person and love your solitude, gym is
the best place for you. The one hour spent in the gym
will give you a sense of peace and tranquillity, away
from the daily hustle. Watch inspirational videos and
plan what exercises you are gonna do the next day.

TO FEEL LIKE A SUPERHERO
You dont have to save the world
to be a superhero. Be kind. Be the
one who gives lots of love to the
people around and spreads
happiness. Theres no bigger
superhero than someone who can
make others happy! And only a
healthy person with a peaceful mind
can make others laugh!

#21
TO HAVE PEOPLE COMMENT ABOUT YOUR
GREAT BODY WHEN YOU PASS BY
There is a lot of hard work that goes into achieving a
great body. People would appreciate that and it

TO BE ABLE TO RUN WITH FORREST GUMP
Youve known Forrest Gump as the slow-witted, but
kind hearted guy who runs for 3 and a half years to
prove his love for his woman. Make an inspiration for

LED headlamps grab the attention
the most. The other change thats
equally good is the handguard.

drive through the worst and start from the Dhanushkodi!
HOW TO MAKE IT...
So after many failed plans, one
fine morning I decided to visit the
promised land come what-so-
ever. So the first requirement was
a vehicle that would not just be
comfortable but inspiring enough
to take on any challenge that the
final six kilometres might throw.
And when it comes to off-
roaders that wont jumble up your
skeletal structure, nothing else
comes to mind, but the Fortuner.
So on a fine sunny day, we
started around 4 in the evening
from Mumbai and began cruising
towards the opposite coast. After
an 18-hour-long drive, we finally
reached Rameshwaram and
decided to check into Tamil Nadu
tourism boards hotel, located
right on the beachfront. Now I
must say that they had pretty
decent rooms and a great view...
But the restaurant... extremely
disappointing. Having finally
cleared the distance we decided
to call it a night and set up the
alarm for an early morning start.

THE PROMISED LAND...


First thing you got to understand
about Dhanushkodi is that its part
of the Pamban Island and water
surrounds you on all sides. So
when youre about to reach the
Pamban bridge, which connects
Rameshwaram and Dhanushkodi
to the mainland, a point comes
where you see an expanse of
sparkling blue water looming on
your right. The view is such that
you feel as if any moment the sea
is going to spill over and wash you
off like a worm. More than fear, its
the feeling of awe that greets this and we could simply drive through A MOMENT OF SILENCE... railway station, post office and

Dhanushkodi, that awe just starts crossings. But I must say that like this. In 1964, it was a bustling about Dhanushkodi is that being off

WHEE L SPUN
Though I prefer SUVs for highway driving, the road condition from
Mumbai to Dhanushkodi is such that it can easily be done in a sedan.
Except the stretch from Madurai to Rameshwaram, you are literally
cruising on four-lane highways and that too with minimal traffic. As I had
mentioned before, the place where you will miss an SUV is when you've
got to clear the final off-road stretch to Dhanushkodi. And that's where
you feel the full might of Toyota's Fortuner. For a machine that has shed
its flab it certainly hasn't forgotten its bite. From chasing waves to
taking a quick dip in the Bay of Bengal, the Fortuner never backs down
to a challenge. I would say it was the perfect partner for this trip.

HOW TO START A
CONVERSATION?
THE MOST IMPORTANT
PART IS THAT THE GUY
NEEDS TO BE CONFIDENT,
BUT OBVIOUSLY NOT TOO
MUCH. WHEN YOU START
A CONVERSATION, DO
NOT TALK ABOUT THE
WEATHER OUTSIDE AND
ALL THE CRAP AROUND.
CONCENTRATE ON THE
GIRL, ASK HER SOME
QUESTIONS, AND SHOW
THAT YOU ARE REALLY
INTERESTED IN HER. WHILE
TALKING TO THE GIRL, TRY
TO BE FUNNY, CRACK SOME
JOKE MAY BE. MOST OF THE
GIRLS FIND IT CUTE.
HOW NOT TO LOOK
LIKE A CREEP?
NEVER STARE AT THE
GIRL! THATS THE FIRST
RULE. WOMEN DO NOT
LIKE IT. IT IS ALSO
IMPORTANT TO AVOID
FOLLOWING THE GIRL OR
CHASING HER IF YOU CAN
FIGURE OUT THAT THE
GIRL IS NOT INTERESTED
IN ANY INTERACTION.

WHAT EXERCISES TO
DO TOGETHER?
THE BEST WORKOUT
REGIME IS WHEN YOU DO
IT WITH YOUR PARTNER.
THERE ARE SOME
EXERCISES LIKE, PUSH-
UPS, BAND JUMPS AND
CRUNCHES. KEEP YOUR
EYES ON YOUR PARTNER
ALL THE TIME. THATS THE
MOST IMPORTANT PART
WHEN YOU ARE TRYING TO
WIN HER OVER!

by Mickey Malani, BodyCanvas Tattoos
When deciding what type of body piercing to get
this summer, it's important to keep in mind that
swimming and summer go hand-in-hand, but
swimming and new piercings don't. There are a
number of body piercings that take just 4-6
weeks to heal, so you do have options for
piercings you could get early in the summer that
would heal quickly enough for you to enjoy
swimming later in the season. Some of the best
options in terms of faster healing times are
earlobe piercings, lip piercings, eyebrow
piercings, tongue piercings, and a handful of
male and female genital piercings, like VCH
piercings and frenum piercings. Cartilage ear
piercings, nose piercings, nipple piercings, belly
button piercings, dermal piercings, surface
piercings, and more invasive genital piercings
like apadravya piercings take longer to heal, so
give cautious consideration to getting one of
these piercings during the summer.
Before getting a nose, lip, tongue, or genital
piercing this summer, there are two more factors
you should consider in addition to the fact that
you'll have to avoid swimming while your new
piercing heals: allergies and summer flings. If
you have summer allergies, you may want to hold
off getting a septum piercing, nostril piercing, or
other type of nose-piercing until fall or winter, so
you won't have to worry about blowing your nose
constantly while your sensitive new nose
piercing is healing.
Also keep in mind that summer is the season of
love, and it can be hard to keep a partner's
mouth away from lip and tongue piercings and
hands away from nipple and genital piercings
while they're healing. Now that you've read the
warnings, you can choose the best summer
piercing for you based on the activities you
engage in most often during the summer months
and the types of piercings you're most interested
in getting.
If you don't mind waiting until August to dive into
a cool body of water, get any piercing you want!
No summer allergies? Get that nose piercing
you've been dying for, but keep your head out of
the water this summer. Or, if you're not worried
about telling your partner "hands off", go ahead
and get the genital piercing you've been wanting.

THE SUMMER HAIR
by Jannat Sethi, Hair and makeup artist
Summers are here and it's time to store away the
hoodies and knit caps (beanies). Maintaining hair
styles for a longer duration in the summer can be a
task but with the right cut and with the right
products you will look like a star every day. Before
anything you need to know your hair type and
texture and accordingly pick out the look and styling
products like mousse, hair wax, gel or pomade.
Summers can make the hair very greasy
and smelly, if you have an oily scalp
then make sure you are using
oil-free products and keeping the
hair and the scalp clean. If you
have curly or frizzy hair, then don't
forget to condition after every
wash. Styling product if left in the
hair for too long can lead to hair
fall and other related problems.
Hair serum is very important
and can really go a long
way in keeping the hair
healthy and tamed. Use
the mousse to control
hair for the desired
style. Once achieved
set it with pomade or a
good hold hair spray.
