Win some, lose some - Annu Kapoor

A decade and running, that's Zee's Antakshari for you.

Pallavi and Annu on the new Antakshari sets - reaching for the skies

But Annu Kapoor's other baby, a musical show that's been running for one and a half years on Pakistan's Geo channel, has run into rough weather.

Gayegi Duniya Geet Mere, a daily show that had Annu holding forth on different musical legends from the subcontinent, has been one of the actor's pet projects for a long while. Financial constraints on part of the channel have forced the temporary closure of the show, reveals a saddened Annu.

Annu carried his own team of musicians with him for the show that was shot in Dubai for eight to 10 days a month. The show had him revealing the oeuvre, the personalities and the lives of several legends, including famous ones like Faiz Mohammad Faiz and lesser known ones like Nisar Baksh. Annu's mastery over Urdu and the country's fascination for shaayari made the programme quite a hit in Pakistan.

The show has been off air for over two months now, but Annu is hopeful that it will take up where it left off, soon. Meanwhile, he continues to put his indefatigable energies behind Zee's Antakshari, that has got a makeover with the Holi episode. Annu now plans to put his all into Dilli Se Lahore Tak, another crossover bid for the music show, slated for May or June this year.

The new Antakshari sets, now at Film City, have been designed by Nitin Desai and costumes for the lead pair of Annu and Pallavi Joshi have been done by Vikram Phadnis.

thanks for the article, Jem.  I really like Annu Kapoor---he brings a lot of life to the show.  Pallavi does as well---I remember a little while back, Pallavi wasn't on the show and Shaan's sister Sagarika took her place instead.  It just wasn't the same without Pallavi.  Sagarika, unlike her bro, was too camera shy so poor Annu had to make up for it by acting extra enthusiastic (if that is even possible given his normal level of excitement Wink).

i completely agree with you anju di...

annu kapoor is fantastic (have you seen his acting in Aitraaz? that was gr8 too but not as good as his singing!! lol)

yeah...it just wasn't the same with shaan's sis sagarika...but what was really bad was that annu kapoor was quite rude when pallavi came back 2the show...it's like he had completely forgotten about sagarika!

oh well...it looks like annu n pallavi can't do without each other!

Big smile
