Gulfam Khan feeds orphans on Eid al-Adha (TV Snippets)

On the occasion of Eid al-Adha on Saturday, popular actress Gulfam Khan said she celebrates the festival by feeding orphans.

“Eid al Adha is an Eid of sacrifice. Though the Holy Quran does mention sacrificing an animal, I think like most of the times it has a deeper meaning. So, as far as my thoughts are concerned, I believe we are supposed to sacrifice something dear to us in the path of good,” Gulfam said in a statement.

“It can be something materialistic or even something emotionally bonding. It shows what length you will go to stand by the right… I still have to go a long way to reach that height, but as of now I try and feed orphans on this day.

“Sometimes I do it by being present over there physically and a lot of times when the orphanages or the underprivileged are in far fetched places, I see to it that the food reaches them and they can feast too like us… May Allah grant us the patience, love and wisdom to walk the right path,” she added.

Gulfan is best known for her roles in shows like “Naamkarann” and “Khwaabon Ki Zamin Par”.

Web series content is realistic: Akangsha Rawat

Actress Akangsha Rawat, best known for her roles in shows like “Solhah Singaarr”, “Waaris” and “Palampur Express”, says she is more addicted to digital content and would love being part of a web series if they are realistic.

“Digital shows are like short films, they have a finite and short run as compared to TV. Web series gives a feeling of satisfaction — it starts and the story is narrated till the end,” Akangsha said in a statement.

“Whereas TV shows go on forever so, they have chances of losing the audience in between without having told the whole story. Nowadays web series are even watched by elders, as internet has become more accessible to all generations.

“I am addicted to watching short films very much. I would love to do one if given a chance. The content on web is something real, fresh, energetic, contemporary, something we can relate to,” she added.
