Darshan Gandas in Mahadev!

The negativity in Mahadev intensifies with Shukracharya's entry...

A few days earlier,Tellybuzz reported on the inclusion of Rakshandha Khan in Nikhil Sinha's Devon Ke Dev. Mahadev. Sources confirm that the man who played Mrudung in Imagine TV's Baba Aiso Varr Dhundo will now be returning to a mythology on Life OK.

A little birdie from the industry informs, "Darshan Gandas, last seen as Mrudung, will now essay a powerful role in Life OK's Devon Ke Dev. Mahadev. He is all set to play the leader of the devils, Shukracharya. Shukracharya is a 'rishi' and the only reason why the fights between the devils and the gods take place."

Darshan will start shooting for the show from today.

We contacted Darshan who confirms, "Yes, I will be playing Mrudung in Mahadev. I am very excited to essay such a powerful and negative role."

We also hear that Darshan is in talks for a few other projects.

After Mrudung, it's Shukracharya for Darshan Gandas!

Last month, Star Networks pulled the plug on its youth-oriented channel, Star One. Keeping in step with the changing dynamics of the society, they wanted to address a "multi-layered" audience, something they felt neither Star Plus nor Star One had been able to achieve. So, Life OK was launched with a mix of fictional, reality and mythological shows.

"Life OK addresses a certain mindset, not an age-group," explains Ajit Thakur, General Manager, Life OK. "We are looking at a 15-plus audience, and through our stories, we wish to showcase the core of Indian middle-class families where material aspirations are high but values are equally important," says Thakur.

The channel currently has on air Meri Maa, Dil Se Di Dua...Saubhaghyavati Bhava, Tum Dena Saath Mera, Devon Ke Dev...Mahadev and the reality show Sach Ka Saamna. However, the programming does not seem very different from other general entertainment channels (GECs) on air, including its sister-concern, Star Plus. Bank official Bindu Pillai who watches Dil Se Di Dua, says, "The show deals with the trials of Jahnvi, faced with an over-possessive and abusive husband, while Tum Dena Saath Mera is about a couple who moves to Mumbai after marriage and their struggles in the city. The concepts are good, but the angst and struggles of individuals have been showcased by other channels too," she points out.

However, Thakur does not view this as an overlap. "The shows tell you that you are free to seek what you want but in your search for more, you must not forget what you already have," he says. These "values" are reinforced by Madhuri Dixit-Nene, who plays the sutradhar or the brand philosopher at the end of each episode. "This is also a first by any channel," claims Thakur.
 
Life OK telecasts serials on all seven days of the week as opposed to the usual five-day programming. The episodes are 20 minutes-long, with each commercial break under two minutes. This implies that Life OK airs three shows in one hour.

Some of the shows on air are Hindi adaptations of popular shows on Star's regional channels. For instance, Meri Maa is the adaptation of Tomay Chara Ghum Ase Na on Star Jalsa. "While the show will have a recall value, we will get the chance to take it to a larger audience," says Bharat Kaul, the show's producer.

Despite these steps, the concerns of launching a new brand in an overcrowded market are high. However, the producers and creative heads working with the channel do not appear worried. Rajita Sharma, producer of Tum Dena Saath Mera, says, "With a brand like Star Plus backing the channel, and with experienced heads around, one can rest assured about the marketing and audience."

Rakshanda Khan, an erotic danseuse now!

Neha Maheshwri, TNN Jan 12, 2012, 12.00AM IST
 
(Rakshanda Khan)

Rakshanda Khan will play a character inspired by Rekha's Utsav role. She will play a cameo in Nikhil Sinha's mythological show Devon Mein Dev Mahadev.

She will play Madinika, a dance teacher. Apparently, her styling is as glamourous as Re's Utsav look. She says, "Like Rekhaji, I too will be wearing heavy jewellery, bangles, anklets, head and wrist bands and flowers."

Surbhi

Producer Nikhil Sinha's Dev O Ka Dev Mahadev on LIfe Ok is gaining in popularity with every passing day. And one actor who is basking in glory is Surbhi Shukla, the lady who is playing Rohini's character in the show. Incidentally this is not Surbhi's first mythological show. She has already done a show titled Suryapuran on Pragya channel.

Surbhi is also waiting for her first Bhojpuri filmas a lead to release soon. Though she has done other films, this is the first one as a lead. ""Initially I was selected to play the character of Revati but later on the creative team thought that I would fit better in this.I was delighted to accept that.

Everyone in my family, including me, is very spiritual and when this one came my way I said Yes without thinking anything."" Surbhi feels the story of Mahadev narrates many untold, unheard stories on Lord Shiva and that is the reason it is gaining in popularity.

Model Mahadev

Siddhartha Mathur : Thu Jan 05 2012, 02:33 hrs
Former Grasim Mr India Mohit Raina plays Lord Shiva in Devo ke Dev Mahadev

Kashmir-born model-turned-actor Mohit Raina on how he connects with Lord Shiva, the deity he plays in the LifeOk show

For someone whose earliest memories are of hordes of devotees—and he even joined them—proceeding towards the Amarnath shrine, it was a humbling experience to be playing the deity in Devo ke Dev Mahadev, on the newly launched TV channel LifeOk.

"Being born and brought up in Kashmir obviated proximity with and devotion to Lord Shiva, but honestly, I was reluctant to play the role when it was offered to me," says Mohit Raina, who shot to fame after winning the Grasim Mr India title in 2006. "I had reservations about accepting the role because I was not sure how it would shape up. But, once I got to know about the kind of research that has gone into the making of the series, I was impressed. The serial focuses on the romantic side of the deity rather than his famous ferocious form. The peg of the story, as you can see in the current episodes, is the love of Sati and Shiva and the characterisation is life-like, not overbearing," says Raina, who was seen in a couple of television series and two non-starter films.

"I read up a lot, including the books by Amish Tripathi in which Shiva is depicted like an ordinary mortal. But the real preparation was to put on weight in order to look powerful," says the model, who always aspired to be an actor.

"As of now, this show is going to take all my time. I don't think I will be typecast and I look forward to more of such challenging roles," says Raina.

I Always Wanted Gourav-Mouni

Its the shutterbug moment again for actor Mouni Roy,often remembered as Krishna Tulsi of the show Kyunkii Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi.Although,Mouni didnt show up in daily soaps on a regular basis,the sultry siren never made sure she got the creative satisfaction.One could spot her indulging in reality show hopping.Mouni also did some cameos and did not get herself involved in taking up full-fledged roles in daily shows.Now with the show Mahadev a show based on Indian mythology,Mouni intends to cast a spell again on the telly audience.

Quiz her on why she chose a mythological soap and Mouni says,I was a bit hesitant before taking up this role as most of mythological soaps have either bad production quality in terms of visual effects or script or the cast.But this show has good production aesthetics and a powerful script.I was getting the pay package as per my liking also and so I took it up.

So what kept her away from daily soaps for such a long span I wasnt jobless.Reality shows,stage shows and cameos were my continuous source of income.Even though I was getting offers for daily shows,I did not take those up because some of the roles I was offered didnt appeal to me.While other offers had less pay package which didnt interest me much and I didnt want to compromise on either, says Mouni who adds,It feels good to be back to soaps.

Probe her whether she feels the economic meltdown in 2008 was the reason behind less money offered by soap-makers and Mouni says Indian Television industry didnt get affected by the slowdown.The slowdown offered an excuse for TV professionals to cut down on expenditure when it came to roping in actors and crew, says the actor.
On the character Krishna Tulsi,the actor says,It was my debut role.People appreciated me and still remember me for the same.It definitely feels encouraging as an actor.

Ask her about reality shows and she says,I enjoy taking them up.I remember doing Pati,Patni Aur Woh where I was all myself I didnt have to pretend to be somebody else.But my only hiccup in the reality show was my inability to do household chores including cooking.Gaurav (Chopra) took good care of it. Listening to music and reading books is the actors de-stress mantra,as she says,I carry my favourite books along.That apart,my i-Pod has all my favourite music numbers.These two companions let me unwind and relax.I never get bored or stressed up. Now,the conversation veers towards the talk of the love of her life actor G a u r av C h o p r a.

M o u n i says,

Its been more t h a n t h re e years and it feels awesome to be together.We shared a lovely bond.I dont know what brings us together,but I always wanted to have him as my lover he is so caring,responsible and someone who I can look up to. So is marriage on the cards for this lovely couple Not now,but may be after a year or so.We want to give some more time to our career before tying the knot, says Mouni as she signs off.
