JASSI AISI KYUN NAHIN?
So, what should the
next-look Jassi be like? Glam girl or pretty girl next door? BT asks
JYOTI SHARMA & ALLEN
per cent vote for Jassi's makeover
Popkorn, the hot new
entertainment news show on Zoom, is getting its viewers hooked. Within a week
of its launch, the show is
a hit, if the participation in the
live SMS poll conducted in the show is anything to go by. So far, 27,000 votes
have already come in over the first five episodes. The biggest hit was the first
episode, telecast last Tuesday. The question: 'Should Jassi get a makeover?' had
the viewers reaching out for their mobile phones. And a whopping 92 per cent
said an emphatic 'yes'. Viewers were also quizzed on the show about what they
will like to change about Jassi. The glasses should go, is the unanimous
verdict. Next in line are the braces and the hair.
"We have been waiting for quite a while now. Hope the make-over happens soon,"
said a die-hard Jassi fan. We hope Sony is listening!
The show also featured
options on Jassi's new
look. Using computer graphics, the viewers were shown various avatars
their Jassi can don once made over. But true to her onscreen image, Mona Singh
aka Jassi, quipped that she's comfortable with her look, and e m p h at i c a l
ly rejected all options of make-over presented to her! Keep watching
for the hottest and the
latest on the Jassi make-over front. Femina Miss India International 2003 Shonali
Nagrani, who was also the first runner-up at the Miss International pageant, is
the anchor for Popkorn. You can watch the show Monday through Friday at 8 pm, on
glamour and lifestyle channel Zoom.
Pradhan, TV actress:
As far as her new look is concerned, I don't
want to see an ultra-glam Jassi. Instead, she should look like the girlnext-door
with her simple, beautiful face as the centre of attention. Take away the fringe
and specs, but leave us the same, old Jassi.
The look I would like to give her is simple and
stylish. First, her clothes have to be fitted. Overhaul her oversized wardrobe.
Remove her fringe and let her keep her long hair open. Glasses must go and
she should be dressed in smart capris, flowing skirts, fitted trousers.
I believe that with a make-over, she will only change
for the better. Exchange her present wardrobe for jeans and normal everyday wear,
then see how the interest shoots up.
It's high time she had a make-over, not just
because the script so demands, but because the viewers can't take it anymore. To
begin with, she should wear clothes that ordinary people wear
— even in
the suburbs of the country, no girl wears dresses the way she does. Being a
young girl, she need not wear revealing clothes to look great but how about
doing away with the glasses and braces. Or at least, let her wear
decent-looking glasses. And please, do away with the fringe. Even a funky
hair-do would suit a tall slim girl like her pretty well.
quizzes Jassi too...
journey towards the much awaited make-over has already begun. She is a different
person for she realises that the time has come when she needs to fight back.
What with her wanting to teach Armaan Suri a lesson. She will no longer be plain
Jane. As far as the physical makeover is concerned, I can't reveal much. But
it's soon to happen. It will be a gradual growth in Jassi's character. Her
glasses will go and her wardrobe will be more stylish and chic. What ever it is,
Jassi jaisi hogi koi nahi!
SINGH (as told to PRINCY JAIN)
