'We have good chances to make it to the NB finals'

Karnvir Bohra and Teejay Sidhu are one of the couples competing for the coveted Nach Baliye 4 title this year. After having filmed their first episode, Teejay feels their excellent energy level and good chemistry can take them to the finals.
We speak to Teejay about her plans for NB4.

This is your second dance reality after Kabhie Kabhie Yaar…What difference do you find in the two?

This platform is bigger. Nach is the mother of all dance realities. Also one important difference is that there wasn't enough time to practice in Kabhie Kabhie… - it was just two days. On the contrary here we get one week to practice for one performance.

Earlier too you had been approached for Nach twice. But it is only this time that you agreed. Why?

Yes that's true. But the first time when we were approached Karnvir had an injury. He had torn a ligament in his knee for which he was suppose to undergo physiotherapy and last year when we were asked for it, Karnvir was busy shooting for Kismet Konnection. Finally this time when we were approached about three months back, we said 'yes' to it.

What do you feel about you and Karnvir as dance partners?

Great! I truly feel that we both share a very good chemistry and have a great energy level as well… I think we have fairly good chances of making it to the finals.

How difficult do you find coping with the dance routines since you have no professional experience?

Nothing is difficult… it's easier in fact!

How many hours do you rehearse daily?

I am doing a health show I have to shoot for that too. So we put in 6-7 hours of practice daily.

Who do you think of the two of you is a better dancer?

It's Karnvir as he grasps steps very quickly and even remembers them pretty well when compared to me.

Have you seen NB earlier?

Ya… I've followed some of the episodes of all the three seasons so far.

On which song will you performing in the first round?

We've performed on the title track of Welcome. This is our first performance and we are welcoming the viewers to the show. I will be seen in a very different look… I am wearing a metallic silver dress and Karnvir is in a black coloured suit with a hat.

How was the experience while performing for the first round?

At the last moment, I couldn't get my shoes which I needed for the performance and sadly I had to perform with my regular boots as there was no option. The dance floor was of glass and hence it was too slippery for me to dance on that. We would have got more points had this not been a problem.

What was the reaction of the judges on your first performance?

Farah was very stingy. She actually said that of all the guys Karnvir is the best and that he possess the qualities to be a professional dancer but she told me that she expected me to be better than Karnvir! Karisma also loved Karnvir's performance and appreciated both of us but Arjun actually realized that there was something wrong with my shoes as he said that he still believes that I am a good dancer, but perhaps something else has affected the performance.

Who do you think would give you a tough competition?

Jaspal Bhatti and his wife Savita, because they have good energy and a lot of enthusiasm, I hope they last for long.

Would you be interested to do any dailies if you are offered one?

No! It's a strict no no to dailies. I can't give 12-14 hours for it which is needed.

Lolo sizzles on ' Nach Baliye'

by Meenakshi Shankar

Oct 16, 2008, Mumbai  

Lolo,%20KarishmaShe showed what she meant when she did a sizzling item number for the opening episode of 'Nach Baliye -4'. She has said that this is not comeback to the arc lights. She proved effortlessly that she has lost none of her magical touch as a dancer.

Lolo is on 'Nach Baliye- 4' as a jury member and she shares the platform with ace director and choreographer Farah Khan and actor Arjun Rampal. The vieLolo,%20Karishmawers are in for a treat because the sexy momma is back with her jhatkas and matkas.

And if you thought her moves could be rusty with half-a-decade long sabbatical, then you couldn't be more wrong. In a dance number choreographed by Farah Khan, the diva in a golden ensemble, was at her sizzling best. And she set a precedent for what she's expecting from the jodis. A tough act to match, for sure!

It's bonded labour: 'Nach Baliye' participant

by Tellywatch News Desk

Oct 16, 2008, Mumbai  

Nach%20baliye%20participants"Production house is my second home," "It is a home away from home." How many times have we heard this refrain from our small screen actors! Of course, we do not refute their claims as we know our actors spend hours and hours under the arc lights day after day. As Karishma Kapoor jocularly put it when questioned her about the small screen vis-a-vis the big screen, "You never really get to sit. The arc lights follow you till you realize it is your master and you are its gilded slave…"

So, the question is, where lies the truth? There are some who, without a blink of the eye, push the actors to the edge and there are some who treat them with kid-gloves. Though, when we asked our actors about the kid-gloves bit, we got looks, which said, "Are you serious…because if you know of any such production house, we would work for free for them!"

The production houses have their own justifications. Nowadays, TV productions do not come cheap at all. It's big money and they feel justified about extracting the maximum from the artists. And, what we heard from our very miffed source about the latest that had taken place at the sets of 'Nach Baliye -4' reminded us of slave labour!

The first episode of 'Nach Baliye-4' was shot at Vrindavan Studio in Mumbai. But, the shoot, which was scheduled to kick-start at 2.00 p.m, found the cameras rolling only at 8.00 p.m. And that's not all, says our well-placed source, on condition of anonymity. "Our favourite jodis were left twiddling their thumbs while Lolo perfected an item number choreographed by Farhah Khan. The shoot went on till the wee hours of the morning and there was no food provided," added a visibly upset jodi, who chose to remain unnamed.

And when we contacted the earlier jodis of Season 1 and 2, they were all praise for SOL production, the makers of 'Nach Baliye' 1 and 2. In unison, they said, "SOL knew how to treat people. Yes, there had been times when we had to shoot into the wee hours, but the production house ensured that the comfort of its participants was taken care of."

Unlike a daily show, reality show is a lot of hard work. At the end of the day, it is a competition and you have to perform! Yes, it's great money, but if you are weighed down by forced idleness and hunger and by the time you perform, the first rays of the sun are peeping out, then tell me, how different is it from bonded labour!"

Naturally, the first episode started off on a rocky note. Someone needs to educate the production house that dictatorship is pass, our source remarked wryly.

Judging 'em right
Posted: Oct 10, 2008 at 1716 hrs IST

Arjun Rampal and Farah Khan share their thoughts on being judges on reality show Nach Baliye - 4

Why judge a reality show?

Arjun: In films, everybody judges you and your performance. I wanted to be on the other side this time and decided to judge a reality show. I want to be more approachable and believe that it is a great medium to interact with a huge audience.

Farah: (laughs) I have judged four reality shows till date and now you can safely call me the queen of reality shows! I love watching reality shows because I am at home with my three children. My social life has gone for a toss. These shows are very entertaining! The best part about these shows is that they don't take much of your time!

Arjun, a lot of your friends from the industry are making an appearance on the small screen, what made you join the bandwagon?

Arjun: Television as a medium has become huge. It is no longer small. Revenues are being generated like never before. I decided to do Nach Baliye- 4 because I knew it wouldn't take up much of my time.. Besides, TV pays me well and I don't need to compromise on my other commitments.

Have you seen Nach Baliye?

Arjun: Yes. Having seen a few episodes, I like the format of the show. It entertained me. That was one of the reasons why I took it up!

But Arjun do you think this is the right time for you to be on television?

Arjun: I don't calculate and make moves in terms of my career. Though I would like to believe, I don't know if this is the right time for me to be on television. Over the years I have realised one thing that whatever you do, you must do it for yourself and not for someone else.

Are you familiar with the contestants?

Farah: Frankly speaking, I do not know most of the contestants. I watch reality shows avidly but none of them have been on a reality show so I don't know them. A few of them seem to be good but I guess it may help that I do not know most of them. That way I can judge them only on the basis of their dance.

Arjun: I knew Abhijeet Sawant and Jaspal Bhatti but besides that I do not know any body!

So what will be your criteria for judging the contestants?

Arjun: Well, Farah is there to judge their dancing skills and I am going to be helping her with my inputs. I will be mainly concentrating on their energy, attitude, the chemistry between the couples and overall performance. I will see the human side of a performance. I am not going to ape anyone. I shall be myself on the show!

Farah: Being a choreographer by profession, this is the best job for me! I get to be myself on the show. I will check for the technicalities, the expressions and of course the overall performance. Everything about being a judge is good, except for the make- up that I detest.

Apparently, Farah Khan convinced you to be on the show

Arjun: Yeah! Farah did talk to me about being on the show but once I met the Star production team, was totally convinced that these guys were doing a good job.

Were you offered any other reality shows before this?

Arjun: I was offered but I was not too sure about taking anything up! Luckily for me, the dates did not clash with my shooting schedules. Also Nach Baliye has been consistent and I am glad to be a part of this show.

Farah: I was offered Big Boss 1.

Don't you think there is an overdose of reality shows?

Arjun: Yes, there are a lot of reality shows! But if you talk to any channel guys, they will tell you that reality shows have the highest TRPs. If the show is good, it will have a loyal fan following. They will watch all seasons of the show consistently. If the show is interesting, it will do well.

Farah: Reality shows are coming out of our eyes, ears and mouth! But the fact remains that they are very popular with the audience and generate the highest revenue for the channel. The audiences get habituated to watching these shows.

What do you have to say about reality shows being scripted?

Farah: There have been things like this doing the rounds from quite sometime. But fortunately, I have not been asked to do anything on any of my shows. Everything is real and there is no drama. I agree that some of them are instigated but I do not know if they are scripted!

Arjun, what about your production company? Are you planning to enter television?

Arjun: Yes, we are in talks. But nothing concrete has been decided as yet!

Given a choice would you like to be a contestant on a reality show?

Arjun: Never! I have watched a few episodes of Bigg Boss and trust me; it is not my cup of tea. I could never stay isolated from the world!

Farah: I don't know! I have never thought about it.

So are we going to see both of you on the dance floor?

Farah: We might do an act in the finale or something. But before that I have to knock off all the extra weight that I have gained.

Arjun: Yeah! As soon as Farah loses weight we shall perform together!
