Reality shows are undoubtedly the next wave on television. In the recent years, they've come thick and fast and, as opposed to earlier,...

they are now keeping you busy on weekdays too. They needn't necessarily provide the entertainment quotient, but they evoke a smile on your face for their sheer stupidity.

Imagine TV has the distinction of coming up with innovative reality shows like the Swayamvar series, Pati, Patni, aur Woh, and Raaz Picchle Janam Kaa. B.B.C's Desi Girl is the latest addition to this list. A show that exposes eight urban girls to the arduous life of a village bumpkin.

The concept appears fine but the problem though is where are the desi girls in it? The ones that we see are women for sure, but how many of them look like girls? A majority of them have long passed the age of puberty, two women have tied the knot and the rest simply don't come across as desi virgins. Few are totally out of shape, while those who aren't, have their ages written on their wrinkles. According to TellyCafe, they are not desi girls but desi aunties!

 



Sambhavna Seth

Sambhavna Seth

Sambhavna Seth

The internet doesn't have her complete profile but, Sambhavna's birth date is listed 21 November, 1982. So by that count she is 28 years of age as of today. I repeat.. '28' years of age. Now, how many of you will buy that?

Commenting on a Bigg Boss forum, a member earmarked that Seth looks older than Ketaki Dave and Ehsaan Qureshi. While that might be a little too harsh, such is her physicality that Seth can easily run down a frail man. Sambhavna epitomizes the typical Bhojpuri diva, who possesses both beauty and brawn. Perhaps, she's has more fats than other erstwhile Bhojpuri divas. Any man or woman will think twice before messing with this lady. She carries a dictionary that contains the famous profanities English, Hindi, and Bhojpuri. Raja Chaudhary will testify to it. Seth's intimidating attitude is evident in the show and that explains why she was shown the door by villagers last week.

 

 

Monica Bedi

Monica Bedi

Monica Bedi

In true sense, Monica Bedi started off as desi girl. Born in the small town of Hoshiarpur, Punjab, Monica shifted to Norway before stepping into the big bad world of Bollywood. It was bad, because she kept bad company. For a while, the world seemed to be at her feet until it came crashing one evening in Portugal. The girl from Hoshiarpur proved to be a bit too clever for her own good. Bedi returned to the scene after spending five years in jail. Bigg Boss was tool to redemption. With Desi Girl, Bedi finds herself in her home state, but she returns not as a girl but a 35-year-old jaded woman with shattered dreams.

 

 

 

 

 

Kashmera Shah

Kashmera Shah

Kashmera Shah

One thought that Kashmera Shah will be older than Bedi, but to our surprise, Shah turned out to be a 1975-born too. Mind you, replacing the 'i' with an 'e' doesn't make Kashmera look any younger. Figuratively, she's maintained herself well, but the pain of troublesome relationships has long taken a toll on her face. She's confessed to going through a phase of severe depression after her initial break-up. While she's madly in love with Krushna Abhishek, their relationship hasn't been solemnized yet by the the latter's erstwhile family members. Some time back, she'd given an ultimatum to Krushna to marry her. Perhaps, the lady herself knew that she was running out of time. Appearing on Desi Girl will simply not bring back her wonder years, but who will tell her that?

 

 

 

 

Rucha Gujrati

Rucha Gujrati

Rucha Gujrati

Rucha Gujrati doesn't gel with Aushima Sawhney because she thinks there is an age gap between them. Surprisingly, she considers herself younger than Aushima. A close look at the actress will suggest that she's not as young as she might like to be. Gujrati started off as a child artist in the following films Kanyadaan (1988), Hum Hia Kamaal Ke, and Shikari (2000). She's featured in serials like Bhabhi (as Bhabhi), Kkusum, Rihaee, Waaris, Waqt Batayga... Kaun Apna Kaun Paraya, Shh Phir Koi Hai, Saas v/s Bahu reality dance show.

Bhabhi lasted for eight years and Rucha featured for the best part of the show. She's been in the industry over a decade, and assuming she was 20 at the start of the new millennium, Rucha has got to be at least 30 now. Presently, the girl has shot that charm on her face; often you'll find her hiding behind a cool shade. When the glasses are off, Rucha looks like an over-the-hill actress struggling to come to grips with the passing of time. Some even suggest that girl has taken more than one appointment at a dermatologist's clinic.


Roshni Chopra

Roshni Chopra

Roshni Chopra

She's a 30-year-old, who got married to beau Siddhart Kumar a few years ago. Perhaps, the lady was smart enough to know that not many plum opportunities will come her way, and so she settled down at the right time. Like Kashmera, she's still in great shape; just a few years into marriage, Chopra is no longer looking like the suave girl that she used to be. She'd once hosted Chak De Bachche. May be in another year, she'll be holding a child of her own and the neighbourhood kids will say, "Hello Roshni Aunty." Quite clearly, the roshni is wiped off Roshni's face. Forget about being Desi Girl, this Leeds university graduate will perhaps do well in Mrs. Universe contest.

 

 

 


Isshitta Arun

Isshitta Arun

Isshitta Arun

Her mother Ila Arun got married at an early age as it happens with most women from Rajasthan. Ishita, a former funky VJ, too got married a few years back. As it happens with most Indian girls, their looks suffer after their marriage. Despite her Rajasthani roots, Arun has always been a rebellion. She liked wearing short dresses, sported funky tattoos and dark eye shadow. Her mother didn't speak to her for two days after her first tattoo. Mummy was extremely livid on the second attempt and she gave up hopes on her daughter after the third tattoo. Isshitta is married to Dhruv Ghanekar Maharastrian. Our Desi girls aren't supposed to do inter caste marriage, and it's considered a sin for girls from Rajasthan.

 

 

 


Anmol Singh

Anmol Singh

Anmol Singh

At 23, she's the youngest of all contestants and befitting to be called the only 'girl' in the show. But is Anmol looking the pretty girl we saw in Roadies 5? The answer will be no. Perhaps, the grind on Roadies has taken a toll on her. She's put on a little weight; the glow from her face is missing. One wonders what road the girl took after Roadies that she's looking so worn out now. She's no longer precious and nor is befitting to be called Desi Girl.

 

 

 

 



Aushima Sawhney

Aushima Sawhney

Aushima Sawhney

 

Who is this lady who Rucha consider older than her?

Aushima is brought up in Bangkok, studied in Sydney, participated in Miss India 2005 before doing films like Dhokha and Yuvvraaj. Looking at her profile, she's simply not eligible to be a Desi Girl.

No doubt this article was written by a man...it is wayy toooo cynical and the way the women are described is completely over-the-top negative and critical.

I mean at one point he has reffered to them as not being "virgins"...WHATTT ShockedShockedShocked ...never knew this was a criterion for becoming a desi girl...
 
And the way he has described the women is such a superficial manner is laughabhle at best......Dead
while i agree that the choice of the female lot wasn't the best, but the way in which the women have been described was uncalled for...imo
