Raveena Tandon, Kiran Bedi, Divyanka Tripathi, Kamya Punjabi and Chef Vikas Khanna Share Their Success Stories on UC News
Celebrating International Workers’ Day on May 1, UC News, a news and content aggregation platform from Alibaba Mobile Business Group, has kicked off its ‘The Spirit of Work’ campaign. UC News is inviting users and fans across the country to share their success stories, providing them a platform to say ‘Thank You’ to people who have worked hard and played a key role in making their life a success. The campaign, running on UC News from April 23-27, has already been a major success with multiple celebrities including Raveena Tandon, Chef Vikas Khanna, Kiran Bedi and TV personalities Divyanka Tripathi, along with Kamya Punjabi, sharing their heartfelt stories with everyone.
Expressing her gratitude, noted actor Raveena Tandon sent a special ‘Thank You’ to her driver and her make-up man. Raveena lost her makeup man Praveen Bhatte last year but continues to remember him on key occasions. Raveena’s driver is still with him and is like a family member to her.
Thanking the farmers, caretakers, vendors, cooks and servers for their labour, Chef Vikas Khanna wrote, “Many invisible hands till, sow, water, nurture, care, harvest, treat, carry, transport, weight, pack, stock, sell and finally lovingly cook. I bow to them today and every day.
Thanking her mother, small screen actor Kamya Punjabi wrote, “My mother always told me to never give up in life…I would like to thank my parents and my destiny which has brought me here after so many hurdles.”
Another one quick to thank her parents was Yeh Hai Mohabbatein actor Divyanka Tripathi. She wrote, “My parents never forced their dreams on me… Thank You Mummy Papa.
