Ice cream: the perfect way to share happiness
With the pandemic on one end and the dazzling summer heat on the other, it’s important to stay calm while staying safe indoors, and ice cream really helps. Thanks to social networks, we can see how ice cream is helping our favorite celebrities to stay calm in the running of the bulls. Recently, comedian Sunil Grover on Instagram posted a video doing what he does best: comedy. As everyone stays, her latest sketch brings laughter when it’s needed most.

On this front, actor Nupur Sanon posted a video where he talks about the things that help her calm down, which includes writing poetry, doing yoga, and most importantly having a bowl of ice cream.
