'Nach Baliye-4' returns, with more star-power!

by Meenakshi Shankar

Sep 30, 2008, Mumbai  

The iconic dance-reality show of Indian TV, 'Nach Baliye-4', will go on air from October 10, on Star Plus.

At a press conference in Mumbai, the details about the stars and the wannabes in the show were revealed. As usual, the producer of the show, Wizcraft has seen to it that it has an impressive dose of Bollywood power. The jury members include ace director Farha Khan, actor Arjun Rampal and Karisma Kapoor. Karisma, who was celebrating her fifth marriage anniversary with hubby Sanjay Kapoor, did not attend the press meet. But, both Farha and Arjun fielded questions from the media people.

Announcing the fourth season, Uday Shankar, CEO Star India Pvt Ltd said, "Season after season, 'Nach Baliye' has been the favoured destination for viewers across India. We are humbled by the adulation our audience has extended to the show and are pleased to offer them the latest season of the show, 'Nach Baliye-4'".

He added, "With every passing season, 'Nach Baliye' has endeared itself to the viewers with new, fresh elements and this season is no exception. With a refreshing line up of jodis and interesting variations, 'Nach Baliye-4' is set to add new dimensions to entertainment."

"This is my fifth reality show that I am judging and I am excited about it," said Farah Khan, who has lost considerable weight for the show. She said, "I have Karisma Kapoor and Arjun Rampal on either side. I cannot afford to look like a couch potato." Arjun Rampal, making his debut in TV, said, "TV is getting bigger by the day. I do not believe in herd mentality and I did not jump into the jury bandwagon because everyone was doing it. I am doing 'Nach Baliye' because it is the biggest show on TV and because the format excites me. I was approached by 'Bigg Boss' Season I but I chose to side-step it. But now, you cannot ignore TV. The connect with the masses is something that I am looking forward to. " And in a lighter vein, he added, "And this way, my mother can see more of me without cribbing."

The format of the show continues to be more or less along the same lines of what the earlier season was. The season will last 15 weeks. Each week, the performances by jodis are rated by the judges. Once their performance is over, voting lines would be open and viewers can vote for their favourite jodis. The first two weeks are non-elimination weeks and the third week onwards every Saturday there will be elimination on the show, wherein one jodi will be eliminated.

This year, the celeb list is an interesting mix. Here are the jodis:

1. Vineet V. Raina & Tanushree
2 - Reshmi Ghosh & Amit Gupta
3 - Karnvir Bohra & Teejay Sidhu
4 - Naman Shaw & Megha Gupta
5 - Kapil Nirmal & Anjali Abrol
6 - Mohit Malik & Addite Shirwakar
7 - Sudeep Sahir & Anantika Sahir
8 - Moulli Ganguly & Mazher
9 - Jaspal Bhatti & Savita Bhatti
10- Jatin Shah & Priya Bathija
11- Shaleen Bhanot & Daljit Kaur
12- Abhijeet Sawant & Shilpa Abhijeet Sawant

All the twelve jodis showcased their brief 'jalwa', but an encore followed Jaspal and Savita Bhatti's performance. Grooving to a popular Bollywood number, the couple were a hit with the audience so much so that there was a unamious appeal for a repeat performance. So, would the statement Singh is King truly come true remains to be seen in Nach Baliye 4?

Mouli Ganguly and Mazzhar succumb to reality show bug!
by Meenakshi Shankar
Sep 30, 2008, Mumbai

Mouli%20gangulyAt our last tete-a-tete with Mouli Ganguly at the launch of Sony's new show, 'Aathva Vachan', she swore that she was not going to jump on to the reality show bandwagon. And when we saw her sizzle on the stage with her partner, Mazher, we cornered her to find out what has changed in between!

"Yes. I swore my dislike for reality shows as the shows on air had left a bitter taste. Infact, even now, when I am a part of 'Nach Baliye', I still feel a dread creeping into me. I know it may sound funny, but that is a fact."

At that point, we couldn't help but wonder loudly, wasn't life all about choices? Mazher chipped in and said, 'It is, but the production house assured us that things would indeed go our way." Mouli added, "This is the third time we have been approached and I guess, things just fell into place. I made it very clear that public displays of emotion and dramatics would not be in my package for the show. I would not be party to endless dramatics which are there just for raking in the TRPs."

So, is she confirming the rumours that ask the all important question – Are our reality shows scripted? " No…no…I am not saying anything of that nature. All I am saying is that there are some people who are comfortable with dramatics and some who are not. I belong to the league, which is not comfortable airing dirty laundry for all to see. I am an actress. But my acting skills come alive only where there is a script in front of me."

And like every man who abides by the golden rules for a peaceful relation, Mazher says, "Mouli is a fantastic dancer and she leads the show. IMouli%20Ganguly,Vishal%20Singh,Aathvaan%20Vachan just follow her footsteps." Their sizzling performance has left the audience asking for more. Their chemistry had Farha Khan jocularly say, "Whoa…if this is just the starter, I am waiting to catch the main course."

It all began at 'Aathva Vachan', she says. "The little girl who plays my sister was the one who convinced me to do the show. Like they say, you need that extra nudge to have you rolling down the hill. Well, this little girl convinced me to be a part of 'Nach Baliye'." When asked about the tiring behind-the-scene grind for getting the right steps, Mouli says, "Both of us are going to draw the line. Because, we have other commitments. Mercifully, I am doing only 'Aathva Vachan' for Sony."

Before we said yes to the show, I had a long chat with Mazher. I wanted to ensure his go ahead for the show. He's the most chilled out character, it's only me you would see fuming and fretting.

Newbie reality dance show movers – Karan Vir and Teejay could prove to be tough competition to Mouli and Mazher. But the couple is not really nervous. Infact, they are rooting for Jaspal and Savita Bhatti who are one of the jodis. They are what make this show really special.

The first episode hasn't been canned as yet, but the couple is already working on their moves. Both of them enjoy dancing, but neither has learnt the art in a professional manner.

So, now that the reality show bug has bitten Mouli and her beau, is this the window for many more opportunities to come flying by in? Both the couple laugh and say, "Let us come alive out of the first one!"

Exam-phobic Mauli on NB-4

Mauli Ganguly and her boyfriend Mazher Sayeed will be part of Nach Baliye's this season, despite Mauli's fear of being judged.
Explaining her fear Mauli says: "I am very scared of exams! I have this phobia that tomorrow is exam day and I am not prepared. That is the reason I stay away from reality shows as much as I can.Moreover I am not a dancer. I love dancing; however I am very scared of the number game," she said, referring to dance moves that had numbered steps, "You may not believe it but I tend to forget steps only by thinking about numbers!"
Mazher adds:" I am not trained dancer either but Mauli is a better dancer than me - I just follow her steps. I have come here with the intent of learning some dancing."

Asked why the reluctant couple decided to take the reality plunge, Mauli said: "My co-star, a little girl who plays my sister in Aathva Vachan, was very excited about it. When first they called me and I said no she was like: 'How can you say no to such a big show?? Are you mad? I want to see you dancing!' Everyday she tells me: 'Maulidi you are not taking it seriously.You have to go and practice everyday.' So the entire credit of our participation goes to our friends."

When asked about her favourite couple from this season she says:" I have always liked Jaspalji (Jaspal Bhatti). As someone in the audience I would love to vote him. I want to see him in every episode. When we just watch him our stress reduces! In the
performance sequence our number comes after his, so it is always a relief for us."

Both of us admit that it is going to be tough for them to dance together. "We never dance at parties either," Mauli says, "Mazher  
doesn't like dancing. At every party I normally dance with my girl gangs and he is always going: 'No yaar I do not want to dance.' So first I had to ask him whether he would be ok with the show."

"A person like me needs to put in lots of time for practice," Mazher said, "for me each and every second counts. The choreographers are like god for us."

It takes two to tango

< =09/30/2008 name=date>
Karan Grover and Shraddha Nigam suddenly opted out of Nach Baliye 4. Karanvir Bohra and Teejay Sidhu have replaced the couple

The stage was set for Nach Baliye 4. But Star Plus was in for a shock as their star jodi Karan Grover and Shraddha Nigam opted out at the last minute. The reason? Karan suddenly told Star Plus that he was not very confident of his dancing skills.

Karanvir Bohra and Teejay Sidhu have replaced Karan and Shraddha in the reality show.

A source said, "Karan looked uncomfortable from the beginning. He came very late for the Meet & Greet event, which was held for the contestants to get familiar with each other."

When contacted, Shraddha confirmed the news that they have  opted out. But, she gave a different reason for the same. "We did not have time for rehearsals. Karan is too busy these days which is why we opted out," she said.

When asked if they turned down the show because Karan is uncomfortable dancing, Shraddha said, "In fact, we hadn't confirmed our participation in the first place. It's true that Karan did come late for the Meet & Greet event, but that's because he was shooting. He has no problem dancing."

However, sources insist that the couple opted out as Karan wasn't too comfortable dancing on the reality show.

Our own gori Resshmi Ghosh is all set to nach ke dikha with her would-be better half Amit Gupta in Nach Baliye 4.

I was approached to take part last year itself, but couldn't do so because of Amit's accident. Right now, both of us are very excited about the project as, is bahaane we will get to spend a lot of time together," says Resshmi. In fact, so upbeat is the sultry beauty that she even harbours dreams of the show eventually leading to marriage.

Apart from the dance show, the sexy lady has her hands full with serials like Kayamath and Kyunki Saas Bhi Khabi Bahu Thi, both from Ekta Kapoor's production house. So, is she Ekta's blue-eyed girl? "It's not that I don't get offers from other production houses but it's just that I feel more secure with Ekta. And when it comes to working for others, I always seek Ekta's permission. It's only because of Ekta that people know me as an actor," the model-turned-actor quips, who also has done a special appearance for a film called Sale upto 50%.

Karisma Kapur will face the camera after five years as a judge on the reality dance show Nach Baliye 4.

She will join choreographer and film director Farah Khan and actor Arjun Rampal to judge the season four of the dance show which goes on air in October.

Sabbas Joseph, director, Wizcraft said that Karisma has been a successful dancer and she was at ease when offered the show. "She knows Farah and us well," he added.

Significantly, the announcement of her participation in the show came on her fifth wedding anniversary.
Karisma had been looking for a comeback in movies and wants to test acceptance level through the medium of television, sources said.

Karisma's last release was Mere Jeevan Saathi in 2006. She also played the protagonist in Karishma: The Miracles Of Destiny on Sahara One in 2003.

Karisma was also one of the many filmstars who participated in a dance number in Shah Rukh Khan's Om Shanti Om.

When contacted, Farah said, "I have been a judge on two singing-based reality shows. But dance is my forte and I think I am more comfortable judging a dance show."

Farah also defended the reality shows and said the rise of Abhijit Sawant, winner of Indian Idol, who is now also one of the participants of Nach Baliye 4 , exemplified the good these reality shows do to talented youngsters. "However, it is upto individuals as to how they use a platform like reality shows to make their way up the ladder," Arjun said.

Satirist Jaspal Bhatti and wife Savita will be one of the twelve couples participating in the show.

Choreographer Farah Khan on judging dance reality show Nach Baliye 4, in a chat with Roshmila Bhattacharya...

Why Nach Baliye 4?
Well, it's the most popular show in the dance reality genre and yet it's not only about dancing though you get to unearth some real talent. Sanjeeda (Sheikh) can give any of the top heroines a run for their money.You also see the growth of a non-dancer like Varun Badola into a really good one. Also, the chemistry or lack of it between celebrity couples. It's fun! I've watched all the three seasons regularly.

Who were you rooting for?
First season, definitely Sachin and Supriya (Pilgaonkar). Even though they weren't young they were high on energy and enthusiasm and terrific dancers. Second season: Tina and Hussain Kuwajerwala were the best. And last season, even though Rakhi (Sawant) and Abhishek (Avasthi) were as good as Aamir (Ali) and Sanjeeda, I knew the audience would vote for Aamir-Sanjeeda because they were so dignified and classy.

Saroj Khan gave the Perfect 10 duo seeties and money.
(Cuts in with a laugh) I want money, for good marks.

Kunal Kohli blew kisses..
(Incredulously) I'll blow nothing.

Compared to some of the others you're a pretty lenient judge?
Why be nasty to those who admit they're not dancers and yet are trying so hard to match up? I can help with tips.. and just being myself.

Most reality show judges are demanding a change in format with the final verdict resting with the judges rather than the SMS polling viewers. Your take?
In Nach Baliye 4, we judges will have 50 per cent of the voting power and the rest will be with the aam janta. I prefer it this way because then the responsibility is not on my head. Besides, it's the viewers who determine the popularity of a show.

If they vote for Hiten (Tejwani) and Gauri (Pradhan) week after week because they love them,  who are we to veto their choice? We may go for merit over popularity but the couple then may not be as interesting and the audience will tune out. There are allegations of shows being rigged. That's a defence mechanism we all use when we lose. But in the case of Indian Idol, Jhalak Dikhlaa Jaa and Jo Jeeta Wohi Superstar, I can assure you that there was no rigging. After every episode we got to see the vote charts.

Would Shirish (Kunder) and you ever appear on a dance show as a participant couple?
Unlikely, I've judged too many such shows.

What about judging aspiring actors now since you are a successful director?
There's only one such show on air and it's terrible.

Will we get to see your triplets on Nach Baliye 4?
Where's the need to expose themselves to attention when they are so little and and have no say in the matter?

Do your children react to music?
Of course, and the camera too. They look straight into the lens and pose. We have music playing at home, day and night. When I leave, it is Bach and Mozart. When I return,  it is  Om Shanti Om. They love the title track.

When do you start shooting your next film?
There's time. I'm still working on my script. But Shirish should go on the floors with his film early next year.

Will you be his choreographer?
I guess so.

And will you be his editor?
I don't think so. I wanted him to edit Om Shanti Om but now he'll be busy with his film and it wouldn't be fair to drag him along.

Is he a better husband or a daddy?
Daddy definitely. He dotes on all three kids and particularly on our daughters. They're daddy's little girls.
