Mumbai: Actor Sonal Chauhan says web world and films are going through a transition period which is really good. She sees this as an opportunity for actors as they have a lot more to do now. After making her Bollywood debut in 2008 with Jannat, she went on to act in Telugu, Kannada, Tamil and more Hindi films. Like most Bollywood actors, she also entered the digital space this year. “I won’t say that the content is better on the web than Hindi films because there are some very amazing films that are being made. Now it is a very good time in the industry where there are fabulous shows being made for the web. I am happy that this is happening,” Sonal said.

Whether it’s a movie or a show, when it gets too serious, they get a little bit of romance to make the audience feel lighter.” “But, I was one of the boys out there, helping them. I felt that the role was very strong and required a lot more from me than just looking pretty.”

New Delhi: Former India skipper Kapil Dev has resigned from his post as the head of the three-member ad-hoc Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC). Sources in the know of developments said that Kapil has resigned from the position. “Yes, he has sent his resignation from the position of CAC chief.” “There should have ideally been an official announcement from the Committee of Administrators (CoA) that the committee is disbanded since Vinod Rai has been vocal about the fact that it was an appointment done only for the selection of the head coach of the Indian team. Also Read – We will push hard for Kabaddi”s inclusion in 2024 Olympics: Rijiju”Maybe in that case, the embarrassment that the legends are facing the conflict notice could have been avoided,” the source added. The former Indian captain’s decision to resign from the CAC comes after the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) Ethics Officer D.K. Jain sent a notice to the panel comprising of Kapil, Anshuman Gaekwad and Shantha Rangaswamy with regards to allegations of conflict of interest as claimed by MPCA life member Sanjeev Gupta. Also Read – Djokovic to debut against Shapovalov at Shanghai MastersRangaswamy had resigned the day after she was served with the notice to explain her stand on holding multiple positions in the board in violation of the BCCI constitution. The former India cricketer had said that people complaining is fine, but if the Ethics Officer picks up every complaint then it creates a difficult scenario and getting former cricketers to come into administration will be difficult. “I gave my resignation from the CAC, as also the directorship of the players association. Last night, I mailed it to the concerned authorities. Now, I can understand individuals complaining. But if the Ethics Officer acts on that then it is not worth continuing. And I think one of the pressing demands for the new BCCI committee will be to provide clarity on this conflict of interest clause and from where are they looking to get eligible cricketers in key committees,” she rued. The legal team of the BCCI under the CoA had given the trio a green light to be a part of the CAC and it appointed the new head coach of the Indian team.
