We spoke to Sunny Arora, Director of Marinating films, who feels that TV actresses have a more dedicated fan following than the various models who feature in a plethora of calendars - " TV actresses who have featured in the calender are household names and it is rather shocking that such an initiative has not been taken up before"
He also mentioned that he was surpised to not to find a list of top Tv stars on internet - ' We wanted to zero in on the stars and were shocked to not to find any list. We turned to our journalist friends and TRP's for guidance. Keeping all this in mind we chose the names. Also, the actresses we have selected are very stylish, which was mandatory for the calendar'
Tellybuzz got in touch with few of the stars who were associated with the project and their enthusiasm was palpable. Divyanka Tripathi of 'Banoo Main Teri Dulhan' feels that the experience was surreal- "Shooting with Marinating Films was a very comfortable experience. I had certain reservations about going all glamorous , but it was handled really well."
We quizzed her about naming three men se would love to see on a similar TV All Male calendar - " Ronit Roy , Gurmeet Chowdhary and Apoorva Agnihotri" and we also asked her to compose her own beauty ad and she replied - " Presenting to you the epitome of womanhood that means divine soul.

Sukirti Kandpal of 'Pyar Ki Yeh Ek Kahani' feels that her shoot made her see herself in a new light- " I love the way they have highlighted my hair and the forest background does justice to it. It is just a completely new look'. When she was asked about one trait that defines her inner beauty she replied -" I'm brutally honest. Even if I may an effort to lie , my eyes belie my futile effort.' Her response to what would your beauty ad be , she promptly replied - " 100% natural - Be it face or hair"
Giaa Manek of 'Saath Nibhana Saathiya' felt that all the girls included in the show broke free from their regular mold and donned a different avatar -" Everyone looked glamourous and beautiful. I do think that Hina Khan's pictures have come out beautifully."
On further questioning she revealed that it was the first time she flirted with a red lipper -' I have a very innocent face and was not sure if I could carry a red lipstick. But once my lips were pianted red, I surprised myself. I feel I can now certainly endorse a lip stick brand"
Barkha Bisht of 'Kitni Mast Hai Zindagi' who has just returned post delivering her baby feels that she had her reservations but then the crew put her at ease - " I was circumspect about wearing an outfit that revealed my back. I delivered my baby just a few months back and was not sure if I was in my best shape. But, the pictures have come out really well". She feels that she can certainly endorse a body bronzer and it makes her look exotic -" If I have to compose a beauty ad for myself I would say a young 32 years old , exotic beauty who will take your breath away"
Anita Hassanandani of 'Kavyanjali' feels the entire concept of the calendar is very bold - "It was very exciting to be a part of such an experience. The concept was very bold and totally different from the 'Saas Bahu' norm." She feels all the effort that she has put in tone herself has paid off - "I had to shoot some really bold pictures with a drenched pallu. I'm glad that all the effort I put in to shed the weight shows in the pictures."
Pooja Gor of 'Pratigya' feels that her entire look has stood out for her-" I can not really pin point a feature of mine that has stood out in the pictures , but the entire layout looks so different and it is a pleasant surprise".

Her one trait that defines her inner beauty is her ability to call 'Spade a Spade' -" My attitude is my biggest strength. I'm upright and straighforward and dont mind speaking my mind out"
