STILL CRAZY IN LOVE

In an in­dus­try where the di­vorce rate is high, it is won­der­ful to see celebrity cou­ple Rashidi Ishak and Vanidah Im­ran still have that twin­kle in their eyes. SYAHIRAH MOKHTAZAR has the story

New Straits Times - - Entertainment -

THEY have just cel­e­brated their 17th wed­ding an­niver­sary, quite an achieve­ment in any­one’s book. If you ask ac­tor Rashidi Ishak, 43, he is not shy to ad­mit that he is still very much crazy about his wife just as much as he was back in the day.

He re­cently up­loaded an old photo of Vanidah Im­ran, also 43, on his Instagram ac­count, taken on their wed­ding solem­ni­sa­tion day in 2000.

Part of his cap­tion for the photo read: “The day I broke many blokes’ hearts. Sorry lads, I was crazy for her (then) and I am still crazy for her (now).”

The im­age is one of the many pho­tos Rashidi shares on his Instagram.

So, what’s his se­cret to a happy mar­riage?

“Just let your wife do what­ever she wants!” laughed Rashidi. “I’m only kid­ding around. Hon­estly, I’m blessed to have such a won­der­ful wife.

“We have this mu­tual agree­ment where we must re­spect each other no mat­ter what. We’re a team and we make sure to do ev­ery­thing to­gether, es­pe­cially when it comes to rais­ing our kids,” said Rashidi at the launch of TV3’s light-hearted drama se­ries Pana­sonic Ke­tu­pat Ren­dang Brown­ies Cok­lat.

Rashidi will star in the show along­side Rita Ru­daini and Khati­jah Tan, among oth­ers. He plays Zaid, the hus­band of Rita’s char­ac­ter, Elyna.

The plot cen­tres on Zaid and his typ­i­cal mod­ern-day fam­ily, who have not been able to ba­lik kam­pung to cel­e­brate Hari Raya for al­most three years. Sad­dened by this, his par­ents, Wan (Khati­jah) and Tok Wan (Mior Hashim Manaf ) de­cided to sur­prise Zaid and his fam­ily by vis­it­ing them in the city.

Pana­sonic Ke­tu­pat Ren­dang Brown­ies Cok­lat is a col­lab­o­ra­tion be­tween Pana­sonic Malaysia and Me­dia Prima Bhd (MPB).

MPB’s part­ner­ship with the elec­tri­cal com­pany is aimed at deep­en­ing Pana­sonic’s prod­uct pen­e­tra­tion across the larger Malaysian house­holds.

The show will fea­ture Pana­sonic prod­ucts to por­tray the brand as an in­te­gral part of Malaysians’ lives.

Pana­sonic Malaysia con­sumer mar­ket­ing and cus­tomer ser­vice di­rec­tor Takaaki Ue­hara said in an ex­ten­sion to the drama se­ries, the col­lab­o­ra­tion would en­tail a multi-plat­form con­tent part­ner­ship across numer­ous plat­forms un­der MPB.

MPB sales and strat­egy for client ser­vice group di­rec­tor Nini Yu­sof said: “The dis­cus­sion for the col­lab­o­ra­tion came early as last year. TV3 has been en­ter­tain­ing Malaysia for more than 30 years and Pana­sonic is a strong brand. When you bring the two strong brands to­gether, we will be able to reach a ma­jor­ity of Malaysians who enjoy watch­ing dra­mas.”

Pana­sonic Ke­tu­pat Ren­dang Brown­ies Cok­lat will air on TV3 ev­ery Thurs­day at 6pm, from May 25 to June 15. View­ers can catch the re­peat tele­cast from June 3 to 6, Mon­days to Thurs­days at 5.35pm.
