Mona has no dates for reality show

Mumbai: Mona Singh seems to be getting busier by the day. At the moment she has so much of work in hand that she may not be able to host the third season of the reality dance show Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa, though she has been approached by the organisers.

She says, "There is a huge problem. My dates are clashing with my other assignments and giving them the required time seems very difficult."

Mona was the winner of the first season of the show and in the second season, she hosted the show along with Rohit Roy.

Mona's current assignments include the television reality show Arre Dewaano Mujhe Pehchano and daily soap Radha Ki Betiyaan Kuch Kar Dikhayegi. According to the buzz in the TV industry, Radha Ki Betiyaan's TRP has got a boost after her entry.

"I think audiences like my pairing with Apoorva. Working with Tony and Deeya Singh has always been great fun," she says, adding, "I guess life is going great guns for me."
However, what excites Mona the most at the moment is the mention of her big screen debut in Raj Kumar Hirani's 3 Idiots which stars Aamir Khan and Kareena Kapoor in the lead.

"My dates from February 27 onwards are blocked for 3 Idiots. I am looking forward to the shoot with such a wonderful cast and crew," she says.

Even in between so much of work, Mona took some time out recently to usher the New Year in Goa with Gaurav Gera and his bunch of friends.

"I never had so much fun in my life. Gaurav is such a cool friend; he invited me to come along with his friends to Goa. The entire day we were at the beach, then partied till six in the morning. Earlier I went to Goa only for work, but this was the first time I partied there. I am rejuvenated after such a rocking time," she ends.

Comedy is a tough task

Sunday, January 11, 2009 19:41

Mona Singh's tried her hand at dancing, after the popular Jassi Jaissi Koi Nahin, and now she's doing a comedy reality
Mona Singh show.

Flattered by the response she has received from her admirers after her first performance in Arre Deewano Mujhe Pehchano, Mona says, "I have received loads of messages from my fans. They are all very impressed with my efforts. I'm enjoying every bit of the attention." Despite having already participated in more than a couple of reality shows, Mona admits that she had apprehensions before she gave her final nod to this offer. "People who judge reality shows are rude to the contestants. And I, as a celebrity participant, didn't want to experience that humiliation on national television. I agreed to be a part of the show only when I was assured that the show didn't have any politics," she says.

She believes comedy is not easy and even the slightest deviation from the topic can make one's act irritating rather than funny. "Comedy is a tough task. I was quite nervous about my first performance. It is pretty normal for one to get jittery. Also, there is the fear of forgetting lines. But then, as a performer, you have to overcome your fears and give your best shot at what has been assigned to you."

Did the presence of more experienced actors like Mahesh Manjrekar, Gulshan Grover and Divya Dutta ever worry her? "No. But it sure made the task more challenging. I agree, I don't have decades of acting experience or exposure to stage shows, but then it is all about shedding inhibitions, combating obstacles and emerging as a winner. Before I gave my first performance in this show all I told myself was 'Just go, give it your best shot. You are here to make people laugh. There is no competition.' I'm happy it worked for me."

Sounding upbeat about the character she played in the first episode, Mona says, "I just wanted to look funny in my first show. There was no need for me to go on stage as Mona Singh. It was a conscious decision to dress up like a fat woman. I didn't want to poke fun at anybody and just wanted to make fun of myself to make others laugh."

And has she ever encountered a situation where she became the butt of other people's jokes? "It happened when we had just started shooting for the show. Most of the actors would make fun of me. They just couldn't understand why I didn't opt for a glamourous role. I remember going back home in tears."

She also talks about Harbhajan Singh, her partner on Ek Khiladi Ek Haseena. She says, "He's a great buddy. I don't know why he's considered aggressive."

No item numbers for Mona Singh

 
 

MUMBAI: After setting the stage on fire and bagging two awards from dance reality shows, TV actress Mona Singh is yet to be seen shaking a leg on celluloid. The reason, she says, is the offers that come her way are way too sleazy for her.

'I have received offers for doing item numbers in films but they are vague. I can't dance around with 20 weird men while wearing revealing clothes and pouring alcohol on myself. That's just not me,' Mona said.

'I have never ever had that sort of image and I don't even think I can carry it off well,' she added.

Mona jaisi koi nahin


Mona Singh is back on yet another reality show titled Arre Deewano Mujhe Pehchano on Star Plus. The actress, who arguably has a good comic timing and an equally good sense of humour, is seen tickling the funny bone of viewers through gags and stand-up comedy.

Not seen in any soap after Jassi Jaisi Koi Nahi , Mona is presently doing a cameo in Radhaa Ki Betiyaan Kuch kar Dikhayengi which is produced by the same production house which produced Jassi. There is one more thing common between these two shows – In Radhaa Ki Betiyaan, Mona Singh is once again linked with Apoorva Agnihotri her Armaan Sir of Jassi…

Tellychakkar caught up with the actress on her third stint on the reality show, her upcoming flick Three Idiots and Armaan Sir.

Excerpts:

What prompted you to do Arre Deewano Mujhe Pehchano?

This show is different from the rest and the USP of the show is Gadhashree (the animated cartoon who passes remarks on the acts), there is no rona-dhona, no elimination and no nasty judges insulting you. I agreed to do the show because it's full of fun and is stand-up comedy. This is something that I have not tried before.

Wouldn't your fans recognise you're so popular?

We will have some make-up changes and then we set up a gag. In my first gag there was this girl who wanted to woo her boyfriend so I went as the guy's mother and asked her if she loves my boy. And we got some superb reactions from the guy. It's hard to recognise us as we put fake noses, chins and cheeks. The task is to pull off the gag.

Doesn't it sound like Champion Chaalbaaz?

Arre Deewano is different from Champion Chaalbaaz in terms of contestants. Here we have all celebrity participants and there are no judges and elimination. People will watch it as a stress-buster.

Do you get involved when the script is written?

They have a creative team and even we come up with our own ideas and suggestions. We tell them if we want to do something in particular. We sit with the creative team and work on it together. Then we work on the looks and make-up which is followed by a couple of rehearsals as one can't predict how the person on whom the prank is to be played will react.

You also appeared on Comedy circus.

Yes and I forgot all my lines.

Did you draw inspiration from the show?

No, infact I was so scared thereafter that I decided never to do comedy again because Shakeel is a fabulous comedian. We didn't do any rehearsals and he said that we will manage it on stage and I too agreed with him thinking that it was not a competition. But we goofed up on the stage as he picked up some other lines and I completely forgot mine.

Have you ever been prey to such pranks?

Oh! I have been victim to a prank on Champion Chaalbaaz. There were these artists in the disguise of cops who started interrogating me. They asked me where I was heading so late at night and asked me to show them my passport and driving license even though I wasn't driving the car. And falling prey to their prank I actually told them that I wasn't carrying one.

You have done almost everything from a serial to dancing to hosting and now stand-up comedy.

Oh! I am really lucky and I need to thank my stars for the same. I have danced and acted in Jassi and now I am learning comedy. Now, I am excitingly looking forward to my movie Three Idiots which is directed by Raju Hirani.

Would you like to tell us about Three Idiots?

My first schedule was in September 2008 in Shimla. I was obviously very nervous about sharing screen space with the likes of Kareena Kapoor, Aamir Khan and Boman Irani. I am playing Kareena's sister and we are Boman Irani's daughters. My first shot was with Boman Irani and we had rehearsed it a couple of times. When we completed the shot everybody started clapping, applauding and cheering. I was so touched with their warm gesture. My character name in the movie is Mona.

How is it getting back with DJ and Apoorva Agnihotri in Radha Ki Betiyaan?

It's a cameo as I don't want to do regular daily soaps. Five years on-screen I have been dating the same man but its great fun. We share a great on-screen chemistry, camaraderie and equation. Deeya and Tony are great friends to work with and I am enjoying playing the character. I think the cameo would run for another two months.
