Zee TV's Jhansi Ki Rani to take a leap in mid May..

Zee T and Contiloe Telefilms' Jhansi Ki Rani is all geared up for a leap sometime in mid May. The rating of the show has been on a rise, and the channel and production house feel that this is the right time to go for the much-awaited leap.

They were to take the leap after the initial 30 episodes, to make way for the older Rani Lakshmi Bai to be at the helm of things. However, Ulka Gupta's portrayal of Mannu was received very well by the audience, which resulted in high ratings. So the channel and production house had decided to delay the leap by few months.

A little birdie tells us, "The show is doing extremely well now, and we are very much over the 4+ mark in ratings. However, the leap has to come some day or the other, as this is the demand of the script. Hence, the show will be proceeding towards its leap by mid May".

We also hear that the contract of Ulka Gupta too comes to an end sometime in May, and this eases the entire proceeding.

When contacted, Ulka's mother told us, "Ulka's last day of shoot is May 15th".

This will eventually make way for Krratika Sengar to essay the role of Jhansi Ki Rani.

As per our source, "The channel is planning big publicity for the leap, and it looks as though they are already underway with the preparations for shoot post leap, in Karjat".

We tried calling Krratika Sengar, and even sent her a text message but she remained unavailable.

When contacted, Sukesh Motwani, Fiction Head, Zee TV said, "We will talk about it when it is the right time".

Our efforts to reach to Producer Abhimanyu Singh were futile.

Celebs shocking revelations on Ghar Ghar Mein

Just when we thought reality shows couldn't get any more brutal Zee TV presents Ghar Ghar Mein. This is a show where celeb couples are deeply drilled about issues that threatened the very foundations of their relationship.

In the show, Sharad and Kirti Kelkar are shown openly acknowledging their disillusionment of family members. Says our source, "Sharad and Kirti made no qualms about the fact that their parents strongly objected to their union in marriage. They candidly expressed that Kirti's brother and parents were stronger in their opposition. Funnily, the couple introduced their dog 'Bacardi' as their 'only' family member."

Shaleen Bhanot and Daljit, as a couple had to battle depression. Says our source, "Shaleen and Daljit owned up that after all the adulation and fanfare of Nach Baliye 5, they hit a valley for which none of them was prepared. The most shocking revelation was that Shaleen went into absolute depression and that for a year he was absconding! It was Daljit who had to take responsibility of the relationship at that time. She took it in her hands to transform cold, callous and arrogant person that he had become."

In the case of Kamya Punjabi and Bunty Negi, it was Kamya who got cornered in the show. We all know Kamya and Bunty had nullified their marriage for almost a year and almost signed on the dotted lines of the divorce papers. The show was an emotional roller-coaster ride for the couple. Says our source, "Kamya admitted that during the one year of separation, she got up-close and involved with other men. However, her gutsy confession didn't last long enough to answer the curious anchor's question of whether the man she got involved with was from the industry itself."

The most dramatic encounter was with Manav Gohil. The source says, "When the anchor asked Manav whether he has been caught red-handed with any other woman, he totally lost it and started yelling at the anchors Vipul and Manish. Things got out of control and Manav stomped off the sets." The source adds, "His reaction only goes to favor the rumors that his wife Shweta had in reality, caught him red-handed with another woman."

Vansh to die in Uttaran?

If everything is going smoothly in life then we’d never have our TV soaps. Tears/emotions are the fulcrum of any soap. Without it, no soap can function.

Colors show Uttaran been subject to an array of emotions right from the beginning. As always, poor Ichcha (Tina Dutta) has borne the brunt of all negative things. Firstly, she didn’t get the love of her life Veer (Nandish Sandhu) and in stead got married to his unstable brother Vansh (Rohit Khurrana)

Vansh is livid to know about Ichcha and Veer’s past but he still marries the girl. Life will only get more turbulent for poor Ichcha.

It’s now buzzed that Vansh will die in a road accident as this character is not appeasing to the die hard Uttaran fans. If this is true then it will further add to Ichcha's misery.

A source informs, “Vansh’s character may die but not before he makes life miserable for Ichcha. He will deliberately torture Ichcha in front of Veer. Though, there’s time for his death.”

An actor though offers a different take.

“If Vansh were to die then now how will the story progress? Yes, there’s no denying that currently he’ll be going through tremendous trauma after learning that his wife will never be able to love him. But he will not physically torture Ichcha. I believe the fans themselves keep coming up with their own scripts for our show. However, we actor get the actual script at the last minute," said the actor.

Both Tina Dutta and Rohit Khurrana remained unavailable for comment.

Ammaji to be kidnapped; entry of an equally fierce character in Laado.

Ammaji (Meghna Malik) of COLORS and Shakuntalam Telefilms' Na Aana Is Desh Laado has emerged as one of the fiercest characters depicted in the Indian Television history for the terror factor that she creates with her overpowering attitude.

But what if another character which is as dominant and terrifying as Ammaji comes face to face with the lady? Well, this is what is going to happen in COLORS' Laado in the coming episodes..

According to our reliable source, "There will be a huge twist in the coming episodes of Na Aana Is Desh Laado. Ammaji will be kidnapped by a person who is extremely powerful. Viewers will not be shown the face of the person to begin with, and will not even have an inclination as to whether this person is a guy or a girl. But it will later turn out that the person behind Ammaji's stunning kidnap is actually a girl who is as strong and powerful as Ammaji".

It is heard that the channel and production house have planned some major twists that will probably shake Ammaji from within.

A little birdie tells us, "Shikha Singh who was last seen playing a cameo in Zee TV's Ghar Ki Lakshmi Betiyann will essay this dominant character and will be the girl who kidnaps Ammaji. Her entry will provide a big setback to Ammaji and this will be an interesting phase to watch out for. She will be portrayed more or less as the female version of Robinhood".

It is heard that the channel has shot a major promo which will show Ammaji's kidnap. The promo will provide this intrigue factor on the identity of the kidnapper, whose face will not be revealed initially.
Shikha Singh was last seen doing an episodic for Sony's CID.

We tried calling Shikha Singh and even sent her a text message, but she did not respond.

We even tried calling Meghna Malik, but failed to get any revert.

We could not get any confirmation on this big development in Laado from the channel as well as production house.

Nandish Sandhu joins the fight against drugs

Veer aka Nandish Sandhu, the sweet chocolate boy of Colors' popular serial Uttaran has put a step forward to help many more people like 'Vansh' who are suffering from 'Drug Addiction' in real life too.

Nandish strongly feels that the drug addicts ratio especially amongst the youth is rising at a very high pace and as a responsible citizen he has been rigorously working on his 'Say NO To Drug' campaign from past a month now.

"Yes, I really feel that this issue needs special attention because it has gripped many youngsters and this needs to be handled on a much individual level. I had also been to Delhi on March 21st and recently on April 3rd wherein we visited JIMS college, DLF mall and we conducted best slogan contest. We stopped over rehabilitation centers to spread awareness", conveyed Nandish.

When asked whether the track of his present serial motivated him to fight for this issue he swiftly replied, "No actually it's a mere coincidence that a similar track was worked out in the serial. Actually, some months back one of my very close friends expired due to drug addiction. Seeing the pain he was going through when alive and then the trauma that his family experienced after his death it just shook me from within and directed me to take this step."

Nandish at present is working as a one man army but aims to grow his campaign into a fully fledged institution very soon. "Certainly, I'm planning to get myself associated with a NGO working against drug addiction and I'm also trying to involve other television as well as bollywood celebrities in this campaign in due course of time. And when we proceed with it my team of Uttaran will be approached first," he says.

But as of now Nandish is fighting towards the drug addicton issue through a socializing platform, called SMS GupShup, wherein people who wish to support him could just send a SMS- JOIN NANDISH to 092195 92195.

So as Nandish is utilizing his television stardom for a social cause we hope that he receives utmost support and also helps in depreciating the drug addicts' ratio in our country.

Gurmeet’s prank causes deep pain to his fans

On 31 March a portal had carried a report of an alleged break-up between love birds Gurmeet Choudhary and Debina Bonnerjee. A day later it was revealed that this was just an April fool’s joke played by the actors so as to gauge the reactions from their fans.

Unfortunately, the fans don’t seem to be amused by this trick and are extremely unhappy with the duo for this act. Hundreds of fans have written mails while a few fanatics resorted to some extreme step to expresses their displeasure. One such fanatic stopped eating until he was assured from Choudhary that this was all but a joke.

Gurmeet says, “It was meant to be an April fool joke but apparently we’ve unintentionally cause lot of panic among our fans. Ever since, we put that news, fans have expressed their displeasure through messages on social networking sites. Besides I’ve received several calls from in and outside the country. Personally, I’m very humbled by their reaction. I never thought this joke would spread like a fire.”

Talking about a particular fan, he says, “Unfortunately, a fan from Kolkata (I can’t recollect his name) was so hit by this news that he refused to eat until I spoke to him. I was really surprised and hurt too at the plight of this man. I told him that this is just a joke and assured him that Debina and I will always be together. I apologize to him and my other fans.”

Well, you better do Gurmeet because in this country viewers have always idolized one who’s played Lord Ram. So such pranks from the Gods are unpardonable.

Some believe that she’s arguably the most loved bahu in small screen’s recent history. Her show Banoo main teri Dulhann went off air, but her fans are conspicuous by her long absence. Critics wrote her off but Divyanka is not one to go down quietly in the sunset. Divyanka simply shut herself from the outer world preferring to go into exile mode. The pretty lass will soon be seen in SAB daily titled Mr. and Mrs Sharma.

After a long while, Divyanka picked up her phone much to the surprise of this reporter. One couldn’t help but ask Divyanka as to has she now come out of her exile?

“Yes, I have come out of my exile. I believe in life there comes a time when you must disconnect yourself from the outer world and just stick to your family and close friends. For close to three years, I’d worked day in and day out thereby, I wasn’t able to give time to myself. There were lot of things that I wanted to but I couldn’t take it up. One of them was to have a house of my own,” said Divyanka.

That dream has now turned into a reality with Tripathy buying a 2 BHK flat in the plush area of Malad. The girl from UP took it upon herself to decorate her house. Well, surprisingly, she hasn’t been able to find a maid and so Divyanka is left to do most of the household work viz. brooming, cleaning floors, bathroom and toilets too. The girl though isn’t whining.

“For a while, I did have a maid, but I wasn’t impressed with her work. So, I took it upon myself to wash dishes, bathrooms and even toilet. You won’t believe but I’m looking like a bhangi (sweeper). It’s always best that you take care of your own house. My mother always maintained that you should do your own work. Guess, now I’m following in her footsteps. I feel doing such work instills a sense of humility as you start respecting people for whom this is a means to earn their daily bread,” Tripathy sighed.

The talk now moves out of the house and it’s work again that captures her imagination. She’s got an interesting tale about how she landed Mr. and Mrs Sharma.

Tripathy says, “I had agreed (not signed) to do another project but one day Ujjwal Rana (Mr. and Mrs. Sharma’s co-producer) asked me to come down and have a look at the script. After reading, I was in splits. Rana could sense that I was impressed and so he wouldn’t hear no for an answer. So, I agreed to do a show where I didn’t even shoot the pilot. Guess, it was in my destiny to do Mr. and Mrs.Sharma

Critics are already lamenting Tripathy for opting for a show on a relatively lesser known channel but the actress is unperturbed “I knew, people will raise this point, but I want to tell everyone that I snubbed a bigger GEC for the SAB show. Comedy is something which I always wanted to do. I’ve shed enough tears. Now is the time to make viewers smile,” the former tragedy queen explained.

Finally, it’s Sharad Malhotra who comes to our mind. However, Divyanka is still very diplomatic when it comes to talking about her alleged boyfriend.

“Sharad is doing fine,” pat comes the reply. As always, it’s difficult to get her speak on this one. Anyways, well come back Divyanka.

Gurmeet is second Arun Govil?

Gurmeet Chaudhary who will surely be better recognized by his on screen nameLord Ram’ of Imagine’s ‘Ramayan’ and thus after the show the actor always wanted to do some ‘Hatke’ roles as even his role for Ramayan was quite different. Talking about his way of selecting the role, the guy seemed very fussy to choose his role and declared that he does only seemingly different shows.

In a recent conversation with Gurmeet, he seemed very happy taking up the role for star One’s next. “Frankly speaking, I don’t like to do normal shows and looking at my choosiness every one around me says that you are going to be second Arun Govil who is also known as Ram of Ramanand Sagar’s Ramayan, Vikram of Vikram- Betaal and was quite fussy in doing roles on small screen again after these shows.”

“But then I always reply them that he was the one who wanted to do such mythological roles but its not with me, even though I like to do different roles, I don’t want to be in mythos always as I had also accepted to do Imagine’s ‘Pati Patni Aur Woh’, but yes! I don’t like to normal roles (Laughs).” adds Gurmeet.

Let’s see Gurmeet, how hatke is your upcoming role!

Siddharth Shukla Happy with New Ayesha!

As per the recent reports the character of Ayesha of Star One’s ‘Jane Pehchane Se Yeh Ajnabbi’, essayed by Aditi Tailang has been replaced by Sanjeeda Sheikh. It was a creative decision to replace the lady as she had some cold vibes with her co-actors. This was considered as a barrier to good love chemistry which was important for the story line. And now after the replacement or rather after the new entry of a new co-star, we called Siddharth Shukla (Veer) to know his stance.

Siddharth very happily said, “I am enjoying the new company as Sanjeeda is a great co-actor and always spreads laughter around the sets. As she is very jovial person who can mingle with anyone with out any grudges, it makes me feel more comfortable to work with her. It’s fun to be with her and I’m totally enjoying her company.”

Siddharth goes on as he could not stop himself by saying, “she is not the one who mixes all her personal and professional life and keeps everything separate.”

Well Siddharth did you mean that Aditi lacked all this qualities which was the reason to replace her? In any case, only Aditi knows the whole story, isn’t it?

Aamir Khan to Host Kaun Banega Crorepati?

A buzz has come to us that ‘Mr. Perfectionist’ of Bollywood, Aamir Khan, will be the next celebrity to host ‘Kaun Banega Crorepati’(KBC). The show has been hosted by noted celebrities like Shahrukh Khan and Amitabh Bachchan. Now, surprisingly, Aamir has been approached to host KBC.

Our source reports, “Even though Aamir has been tipped for hosting KBC, he has not yet accepted the offer but on other hand had not rejected it either. Reportedly, Aamir has been offered even more money than SRK and Big B, around 75 lakhs per episode and once he is sorted out, the deal will be inked. Aamir’s initial reaction to decline the offer for the show was that KBC has already seen two legends and doesn’t want to generate pointless comparisons.”

Speaking on this, Siddharth Basu, (Producer of Licensed Company, Synergy) said, “It’s too early to talk about the next season for KBC.”

Well, it would be a treat for Aamir’s fans to see him hosting KBC and enjoy his new ‘takiyakalam’ after ‘Lock Kiya Jaye’ and ‘Freeze kiya jaye’, what say?

'I wish to write a script' - Hiten Tejwani

Hiten Tejwani who has managed to acquire a soft corner in the hearts of the viewers through his charming acting and bold personality discusses all of it and more with us….

Hiten firstly tell us about your comeback experience on television with Chhoti Bahu?
Firstly comeback for me would be when I return to the industry after 2-3years (smiles). In my case, I have resumed shoot after 2-3 months, so I won't regard it as comeback in real sense. But it feels great to start working again and I'm happy people have given me a very warm welcome.

In most of the serials you have been part of, you have always been given a mysterious entry, be it Kyunki, Kutumb, Palampur Express and now again Chhoti Bahu. What's your take on it?
(Laughs) I think this question should be asked to the creative teams of my serials. But as of now I would say that, may be they like to keep me as a mystery guy in their concepts. They like it that way (smiles).

You are been approached for many roles now. So are planning to take them up?
Well I haven't made up my mind on that yet. But I'll surely give more consideration to roles which would appeal to me. If roles offered are really nice then I may take it up.

Now that you are a proud father of twins, how does it feel to play romantic interest to girls in television shows?
Well it feels good. And at any point of time, I am a human who always feels young at heart if not in age. So as of now I could say that I'm being offered characters that suit my age.

Once actors start getting recognition they become very selective while taking up roles? What's your take on it?
I feel after working in the industry for quite sometime, one needs to get selective about the kind of roles he/she enacts. But my basic idea is that I try not to repeat same kind of roles.

Are you still associated with theater as in your earlier days?
Theater as of now has taken a back seat. Working for theater requires more time dedication and it involves lot of rehearsal sessions. So managing theaters at this time is a bit difficult.

What difference do you find when it comes to acting in theaters and in television?
The major plus point of working on television is that you are allowed cuts and re-takes whereas this is not possible in theater; it's just one shot over there. And the most striking feature is that in theaters, response from audience is also instant and quite motivating.

How do you think the industry has treated you so far?
In that case I would say I was very lucky, the industry treated me very well. They welcomed me with open arms.

So does this mean that you have had no struggle in the industry?
Every person who gets into the industry has to struggle in some way or the other. And when things come your way very easily you don't feel the real worth of your achievement. And achieving one's desire with hard work and struggle is a different fun all together.

In an interview you said you are great fan of Amitabh Bachchan and Shahrukh Khan, so one quality of both you admire a lot?
Firstly I'm nobody to point out any good or bad qualities about the two great artists. But as I idolize them, I truly admire SRK's energy and passion towards his work, and Bachchan Sir's punctuality at all times.

We also have information that you are fond of writing and one day you wish to write a novel and get it published. Is it true? If yes what would be the theme of it?
Yes it is very true, I love expressing my emotions through words. I have started it by writing blogs. But apart from writing a book I also have a wish of writing a script. But that requires solitude and 100% concentration, so at this point it's just a thought.

And talking about the theme I would like to write about things happening in and around a person which are fact based. Basically events that are stored in one's memory and when they read it they get a feel of 'hey I knew this'. In other words, something that people can relate to.

You also have a pet named 'Bekham', tell us something about it?
Yes, he's very naughty. He's our first baby we had got him when he was just 21 days. He has his personal tooth brush, a couple of t-shirts, in short a wardrobe of his own. He's a complete family member.

And now when we have our two angels in the house he's trying to figure out what these creatures are like. It's fun with him.

Tell us something about your sweet memories with your twins Katya and Neevan?
How do you manage spending time with them?

Well now work is not that easy after having spent four full months with them. So I miss them a lot when I'm at work. But whenever I come home and get a glimpse of their smiling faces, all the tiredness, fatigue just vanishes in no time. I love them a lot.

The dedicated fans of you and Gauri are eagerly waiting to see your on screen chemistry, so are there any chances of that happening?
As of now Gauri has taken a complete break. She wants to dedicate all her time to the two kids. But may be in future if she's offered any interesting roles or if she finds it quite tempting she might take up.

Message for your fans.
Thanks for all your love and support. I know that you people are not willing to see me performing a negative role. But please do understand that it's just a character and it's not the real me. And I'll always be the same for you.

Abhinav bids goodbye to his love

Abhinav Shukla has always loved bikes. He is a self-confessed motor-bike fanatic. For him there's nothing more pleasing than a good long ride in his bike.

However, a recent haphazard incident made him sacrifice his love.

Abhinav tells us, "During an expedition to Sangli I met with an accident. I took it as a sign for me to slow down things. So I'm not pursuing my love for bike-rides as much as I'd like to."
Abhinav truly has a passion for getting down and dirty. He says, "I'm a rough guy. In my free time I like to do mechanical work in my garage."

In fact he is so rough he likes to keep it au naturel. He says, "I don't even bother about my looks, seriously. I just go as it is."
Inspite of this, Abhinav gets characters that are too polished. He says, "Yes, I always get roles like MBA pass NRI returning to home-country etc. It's funny."

In fact, in his upcoming show Geet on Star One, Abhinav plays an NRI who comes to India on a quest for his perfect life-partner. "I play an NRI who returns to India, just like the scores of Punjabi boys who even after studying or being raised entirely abroad, come to India to get married to a simple Punjabi girl. The character is not completely grey."

Well, maybe taking up this new show will keep Abhinav so busy that he won't pine for his 'love' after all…
