What’s the end of Mahi’s Way?

Mahi Way, one of the five new shows launched by YRF TV on Sony TV, is the story of girl who is slightly on the heavier side. The promos give the idea that she believes in herself irrespective of the society's thoughts.

However, the latest reports suggest that, the lead actress Pushtiie will be transformed by the end of the show into an average sized girl.

According to our source, "The show Mahi Way is a sort of autobiography of its writer Devika Bhagat. She weighed ninety kilograms in her early teens and worked on losing it once she turned eighteen. So Mahi will be shown unaffected by people's comments about her flab for the initial phase. But there will be a point where she will on her own decide to get rid of her unhealthy diet and lazy attitude."

The source adds, "The show will give a deja vu of one of Sony's older shows Jassi Jaisi Koi Nahi, in which the geeky girl turns gorgeous and has a happy ending with her prince charming."

We spoke to the writer Devika Bhagat who says, "Yes it's true that I once weighted 90 kilos. Once I turned eighteen, the realization hit me that you can't continue to be fat. When I was fat, I used humor as a defense mechanism and that made me the typical 'funny fat girl'. What I didn't realize was that it also put me across as stupid and boring. No one took me seriously. So eventually I decided to change for the better!"

Devika adds, "The show is very close to me as it is in a way my memoir. Many incidents shown in Mahi way have happened in my real life."

So does that mean the character Mahi will follow suit and lose weight too, just in the way you have? To this Devika cheekily replies, "A very sneaky question, I have to say. But for that you'll have to watch the show."

Pushtiie aka Mahi apparently always knew in spite of her size she will be a lead actress one day. She says, "Yes, I always knew I'll be a lead actress. I felt it from inside." So did she put on weight for the role? "Nope. I've always been this way. In fact I lost some of my weight after I started working."

We wonder if this loss of weight continues until she becomes trim like writer Devika…

Khajan Singh trapped in jail in Balika Vadhu...

COLORS'Balika Vadhu is all set for yet another high point wherein Khajan Singh (Chaitanya Adib), father of Anandi (Avika Gor) gets arrested as the police find weapons in his farm house.

This track will be played for two weeks or so, and will unfold many big secrets.

According to our source, "It is very obvious that a guy like Khajan Singh will not do such a crime. He has been planted into all this mess by Mahavir Singh (Rajendra Gupta). Initially, nobody is aware of this, but as the track unfolds Bhairav (Anoop Soni) will get to know of this".

With Khajan Singh in jail, Bhagwati (Bhairavi Raichura) will be lonely and will not find any support system to save her husband. "Actually, Bhairav and others in the family are stopped by Dadisa (Surekha Sikri) from helping Anandi's parents. Above all, Khajan is harassed by the police men in jail, and Bhagwati finds herself helpless. But when Bhairav gets to know that Mahavir Singh has trapped Anandi's father, he will go ahead in saving him from the clutches of law. An interesting court case sequence is also in the pipeline".

When contacted, Chaitanya Adib told us, "Yes, it is true that Khajan will be harassed in jail. There will be some emotional moments shown where he is suffering in jail and Bhagwati finds herself lonely. There is high voltage drama to come".

Abhinav Shukla's entry adds spice to Chhoti Bahu...

Rubina Dilaik's recent illness has surely made her fans go sad!! But one person who has benefited the most out of it is Priyanka Mishrawho plays Vishaka in Zee TV and DJ Creative Unit's Chhoti Bahu.

According to our source, "The main track will focus on Vishaka now, and the start to this has already been shown with the entry of model turned actor Abhinav Shukla. The guy plays Vishaka's love interest, and has come to Vrindavan looking for her".

Abhinav Shukla plays Vikram, a rich and smart guy from Mumbai. The buzz is that he is from the film industry, and Vishaka had got into a relationship with him when she had earlier been to Mumbai to seek a future as actor.

However, the entire track of Vikram and his identity has been kept a secret, as there is a big high point to come as the guy is somehow or the other related to the Purohit family. "Not much of a track has been developed as far as Vishaka-Vikram story goes, but there is a possibility that Vishaka will be shown pregnant with the guy's kid. The big twist will be when the main motive of this guy's entry will be revealed", adds our source.

When contacted, Priyanka Mishratold us, "I don't know much about his character. All that I know is that he plays Vikram, my love interest. But what surprises me is that he is also related to Purohit family in some way".

Abhinav Shukla who entered the show last Friday was also clueless about the manner in which his track will proceed. "I have been told that I have come from Mumbai to Vrindavan, and will have a track going with Vishaka. Other than this, I have not been told anything".

The buzz is that Abhinav's character might turn out to be negative as the story unfolds. "As of now, Vikram's character is neutral, he is neither positive nor negative", further states our source.

Well, loyal audience of Chhoti Bahu can look forward to one big drama now…

Karan Kundra‘Baytabb Dil Ki Tamanna Hai’s charming actor Karan Kundra has been seen doing romantic scenes with pretty Suman aka Shamoli in the serial but this on-screen sweet actor turns into a naughty prankster when the cameras switch off.

About his real life equation with co-stars Suman Das and Priyamvada Kant, Karan says, “I bully them a lot on the sets. Once, me and the director were getting bored as there was half an hour to left for the lighting to be done on the sets, so we planned to force them to say dialogues even when the camera was off and everyone started laughing as only they did not know. They both are very sweet and na├»ve”.

So, does he often do such tricks? “Yes, the other day we were shooting for a rain sequence in a 3000 square feet location but we just needed a 200 sq feet corner and useless lights and other stuff were dumped in other area. We made Suman and Priyamvada do their scenes in that messy area and they kept on asking as to why was the mess around? The crew told them not to get distracted and carry on with the scene and quite later they realised the trick” laughs Karan.

Karan is one big bully on the sets and poor Suman and Priyamvada are easy targets for this innocent looking actor.

COLORS back to all-fiction at prime time...

After their successful back-to-back non fiction shows in Khatron Ke Khiladi and Bigg Boss Season 3, COLORS is launching two new fiction shows in the time slots between 9-10 PM.

While Yeh Pyaar Na Hoga Kam, produced by Creative Eye will be the channel's first love story, Laagi Tujhse Lagan, produced by Playtime Creations is the story of a girl Nakusha from a lower caste who is forced to live her life with distorted beauty.

As Ashwini Yardi, Programming Head, COLORS puts it, "We have always wanted to produce shows that are a reflection of the society. We have also wanted to do a love story, and with Yeh Pyaar Na Hoga Kam, we bring to the audience a love story happening between an upper caste boy and lower caste girl. So as we see in the promo, we bring to notice the manner in which the society reacts, even when a love story is not even in its budding stage".

"We have got our two good looking leads in Gaurav Khanna and Yami Gautam. Gaurav has proved good for COLORS, as he was our lead in Jeevan Saathi too. He comes with his own baggage of fan following, he is a localite too hailing from Kanpur. He is also a fresh face who will grow as our story unfolds", adds Ashwini.

On the other show Laagi Tujhse Lagan, Ashwini Yardi tells us, "This is a very unique story of a girl Nakusha who lives in a slum area in Mumbai. This again has a social message to spread and talks about the life of the people who are forced to be content with very less in life. This again will unfold into a very nice refreshing love story".

Remind her that their earlier fiction slots Jeevan Saathi and Meri Ghar Aayi Ek Nanhi Pari at the same 9-10 PM slot did not do that well for the channel, and she gives us a very optimistic reply in, "Yes, it is true that those shows did not deliver as much as we expected. But the very fact that we are launching these shows after the successful run of two reality shows at the same time slot is a positive in itself. Also we are looking forward to gaining more viewership from the younger lot who witnessed the reality shows aired at this time".

Lastly, Ashwini Yardi informed us that, "The two shows will be launching on December 28th. Yeh Pyaar Na Hoga Kam will take the 9 PM slot while Laagi Tujhse Lagan will be at the 9.30 PM slot".

So we are back to all fiction at the prime time band on COLORS…

But it looks as though the production house and channel might be forced to alter their plans, what with the Maoist issue looming large in the area.

According to our source, "Earlier the channel and production house were to shoot this wedding sequence at the Pashupatinath Temple.

However, we are experiencing certain problems, with the strike and problems happening in Nepal. We are trying our level best to shoot the sequence there.

Ulka Gupta's bridal woes..

The child artiste Ulka Gupta, who plays the title role in Zee TV's Jhansi Ki Rani, has been blushing pink on the sets of the show.

The current track of the show features her character, Mannu, getting married to Gangadhar Rao, the King of Jhansi. Given that little Ulka is just about 12 and quite a tom boy, the demure act of a bride had her constantly squealing with laughter.

According to our source, "Each time Ulka had to perform a traditional shaadi ritual, she'd cover her face amidst giggles and run to a corner to hide herself right in the middle of each shot. Very evidently, the whole idea of portraying a marriage to a man twice her age was extremely embarrassing for this pre-teen. Moreover, her bridegroom - King Gangadhar of Jhansi (played by actor Samir Dharmadhikari)happens to be quite a hit with her class mates. Apparently, the girls have even suggested that Ulka marries him in real!".

And this is not the end of little Ulka's bridal woes ... she is reportedly quite upset that she is no longer going to shoot with the cast members that she has grown fond of in Bithur, as her character Mannu must now be shown starting life afresh in Jhansi post-marriage- with a completely new set of actors to act alongside.

So just like most Indian brides shed copious tears at the thought of separation from their maayka and worry about getting along fine with their sasural-wallahs, little Ulka is going to miss her older set of co-actors and is a little wary of befriending the new lot in Jhansi. Quite the dulhan, isn't she?

Swati, who would tremor at the thought of travelling by air and panic during take-off and landing heaved a sigh of relief and felt positive post her regression. " I was a complete skeptic and did not believe in the theory of Past Life Regression. But whatever happened to me during my regression was beyond my wildest imagination. I was shocked at the outcome of it all. I now am a believer and know that there is something beyond this world." says Swati Singh.

There are also news reports who claimed, that Dr. Homi Jehangir Baba's death was not an accident but a sabotage planned by the CIA. The journey to her past life, done through a conscious meditative technique has left Swati Singh to believe in things that she could never ever comprehend.

Why was Rubina scared?

RubinaRecently, things got scary on the sets of Zee TV’s hit show ‘Chhoti Bahu’ while shooting for the ‘ house on fire sequence’. Such was the effect of the dreadful fire that actress Rubina’s health got affected.

Shooting for the fire sequence was done at a big scale with lots of crackers and big flames. Very rarely does such stunt happen on small screen. “Shooting with fire around was very frightful and everybody on the sets was scared especially me as I was the one who was surrounded by the flames and on top of that I had to act in it,” says Rubina (Radhika).v

If it was dangerous, then we wonder how was the shooting done. Actress tells, “It was totally new experience. All the safety measures were taken; a doctor was present on the sets to avoid any injury. The shoot was done continuously for two days which affected the team.”

As said by the actress, filming such risky sequence; many a times affects actor’s health and it becomes difficult to shoot for longer period and Rubina was no different. She informs “Sets was on fire for long time due to which there was lot of smoke in air that choked my throat for those two days, but the shoot went well.”

Successfully carrying out such risky stunt is an art in itself and the effort of actors and crew triumphed as audience loved the episode. All’s well that ends well, isn’t it?

Basera going off air

NDTV Imagine and Sagar Arts' Basera has been shown the exit door.

According to our source, "Since a month back, seeing the appalling state of TRPs, the show was under the scanner. The budget of the show, thanks to the huge star cast was very high and was not giving good returns with the TRPs. The production house and channel had a meeting and came to a conclusion that if the show could cut down on budget then they would allow it sustenance for a few more months but on a different time slot, which is why authorities kept denying reports of Basera going off air inspite of Raaz- Pichle Janam Ka promos showing that it would be aired in Basera's time slot of 9:30pm. But seems like the solution was not feasible."

The source adds, "Another problem was that the TRPs were good only when Ram Kapoor and Pallavi Subhash were focused. When Priya Bhatija and Amit Jain's love-story took over, the ratings dropped. Maybe audiences wanted more focus on the original concept of the show- 'children turning against their parents'. To top this, the saving grace of the show Ram Kapoor had date problems from 5th December as he is the host for Rahul Ka Swayamvar which has its sets outside Mumbai. So obviously, Ram couldn't afford to shuttle back and forth. He needed a definite break from Basera. This means the creatives had to manage with a parallel track. But with the shows TRP hopes pinned solely on Ram, the channel didn't think Basera would improve at all in Ram's absence. All this finally made the channel back-off from running the show."

So now the decision has been made to chuck Basera. The tentative date scheduled for the show to go off air 4th is December.

“Big Boss is very conniving” - Shamita Shetty

Bollywood actress Shamita Shetty explains the reason why she decided to quit Colors' and Endemol's Big Boss mid-way. She also expresses her displeasure at the way Rohit Verma is playing the game.

Over to Shamita…

Why did you quit?
For me my sister's wedding is the most important thing .

Are you hurt that you were not privy to the decision of the date of Shilpa's wedding?
To be honest at first we thought Shilpa's wedding would be in Jan, so I agreed to enter Big Boss thinking that the show would be over by then. But then the wedding was preponed. Anyways Shilpa always wanted to get married this year and it was only Sunny Deol's film which was causing the delay.
Agreed it was quite sad that I came to know through an outsider (Parvesh) that Shilpa was getting married on 25th November. I was quite upset and kept asking Big Boss to call me to the confession room. Finally after 2 days, I was allowed in and saw a box of laddoo's and a letter from Shilpa. She was sorry for having to announce the wedding in my absence. I wanted to quit there and then, but then as nobody would be home for a week ,I decided to wait till the 13th November.

You did not get a chance to say bye to the others?
Yes, but that's the rule of the game. However, it was nice to see Bakhityaar say all those sweet things in the store room. I always knew that Aditi and Bakhtiyaar were my real friends and I was proved right. Even Tanaaz was very close to me as well.

How was your experience?
I had a very good time in the house. I picked up so much about my self. I also learnt to speak Hindi and make kadda Prasad.

But it was heard that you would not do any chores?
Who said so?! I would always help out in the house. I have done jharoo, pocha and vegetable cutting.

What is your take on the game being played?
I never came with any plan. I don't think it's right to hurt anybody just for the game. But sadly some people were doing just that. In this scenario, I am happy that I left at this moment ,for currently the atmosphere in the house is not very pleasant.

Your equation with Rohit?
I never hated Rohit but his back bitching behavior is quite bad. Let us hope that his friends make him realize that what he is doing in the house is wrong.

Will you come back with wild card?
Right now I have just one aim and that is to take part in Shilpa's wedding. A possible wild card entry is the last thing on my mind.

You were a very bad Jailor...
Yes, Big Boss reprimanded me for not taking my task seriously. I really felt bad when I had to imprison Aditi for talking in English. The jail sucks for not only is it very hot, but it's full of yucky insects as well.

Any golden mantra for winning?
No rules work here, for Big Boss is very smart and conniving. He assigns us such tasks that we will surely end up fighting.

Who would you want to remain till the very end?
I would hope that either Bakhtiyaar or Aditi wins.

You won't have much time to prepare for the wedding?
Shilpa is such a sweetheart that she has taken care of most things. And I had already spoken to the designer for the dress before coming in.

Tanaaz Irani on life after Bigg Boss

Tanaaz Irani, the cool one amongst the Bigg Boss inmates is been out of the house last week. Thus, we bring you an interview about her Bigg Boss ride and its experience.

How was your overall experience about BB3?
Ohh! My BB3 journey was fantastic. As I am not that brave to participate in reality shows like Khatron Ke Khiladi and climb up on a building, eat a snake or do such things. Thus, Bigg Boss was a good opportunity to test myself, my conscious as according to me I am quite clear when it comes to my mind. Overall it was ‘good’ for me.

Did you miss your family apart from Bhaktiyar during your BB3 journey?
Yes! Very badly, especially my 17 years old daughter because my small kid is just 3 years old and he is not that attached to me as he has his own friends, maid and toys for himself. His day starts and end with a glass of milk and he is sorted but its not with my daughter’s case. Truly speaking I participated in BB3 just for my daughter; I had really dedicated this show to my daughter as I really wanted to show my daughter how her mom is in real sense.

Which were your happiest moments from BB3?
I enjoyed the entire task and during which I met two more people in BB3 who thinks exactly what I think. These two personalities are Shamita Shetty and Aditi Govitrikar who really inspired me to be their friends. They both are good human beings and their nature was disclosed in front of me when Bakhtiyaar had a tussle with me and they both were consoling him in the way. How I will console him if I would have been at that place, this had really touched me a lot.

Which thing do you dislike from BB3 house?
There are many things which I dislike but the first most thing which would like to say is, people are scared to say any thing in the house, I don’t know what’s wrong to be as you are. People always want to fly away from the circumstances and that’s true because after looking at yesterday’s episode, Poonamji whom I respected had degraded her image in front of me. Why people are behaving as if they have worn a mask on their faces.

How are you feeling after coming out of BB3 house?
Actually not much different because I was same as I am in reality at my residence so it hardly makes any difference for me but yes I am missing Bigg Boss. I hope the days go faster deciding upon the winner. But I am relaxed because now I don’t have to work and apply ‘zhadoo’ at my place as I have maid who looks after all this work and I am spared now from cold water bath. I am much relaxed now.

Do you have any plans for coming back on television?
No, not yet as I am recovering from Bigg Boss house, inmates and everything that happened with me during this few weeks. Let see I may come back with some new ventures but still a big no for every thing.
