I don't believe in being friends with my ex: Mouni

I don't believe in being friends with my ex: Mouni
Mouni Roy
TV actress Mouni Roy fields questions on her exGaurav Chopra, budding friendship with co-star Mohit 'Mahadev' Raina and her new character,Meera

You were all set to tie the knot with Gaurav Chopra. What went wrong?
I don't want to talk about my personal life. It's nobody's business.

Do you think you can be friends with your ex?
No, I don't believe in being friends with my ex.

So, what does it take to sweep you off your feet?
The guy has to be suave, well-spoken and must have a great personality. He must be fairly well-to-do. I really believe in the concept of 'your money is my money and my money is also my money'. At some point in life, I would want to quit working.

'Devon Ke Dev Mahadev' is the only show as prominent as 'Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi'. What went wrong after Kyunki...?
I was eighteen-and-a-half when I did Kyunki and when you are that young, you don't understand certain things. I felt burdened at that time. Sometimes, I feel I could have done two to three more shows, but I wouldn't be what I am. When I recall my Kyunki...days, I wonder what I was thinking then. I just couldn't keep up with the erratic shooting schedule. I kept refusing daily soaps for almost eight months. I even declined Devon.... I was sceptical, as it was a mythological show. I didn't want to get typecast, but my producers Suhana and Nikhil Sinha were persistent and I agreed eventually.

With whom does Mahadev share a better chemistry ' Sati or Parvati?
I shared a better chemistry with Mohit than Sonarika. If you are asking about me, I am going to choose myself over anybody.

There were rumours that you and Mohit were more than just friends.
They were only rumours. Mohit and I are extremely fond of each other.

Tell us about the person you are.
I want to get married early and have kids. I don't want to struggle in life. I'm a very spiritual person and I believe in eat, pray and love. I am very simple. I can be foolish and this could be one reason why I am taken for granted at times. I did everything very fast in life. I was born premature and was only 16 when I joined college. Acting happened by chance. Given an opportunity to live my life once again, I would only dance.

You are often perceived as arrogant.
Yes, I'm arrogant, which isn't bad. It's good that the media doesn't approach me easily. I don't like undue publicity and don't want to be in the news for the wrong reasons. Fortunately or unfortunately, I was dating a guy because of whom I was always in the news.

Have you become politically correct?
Oh, yes. I am quite a chatterbox, but I have realised that it is easy to shout from a rooftop, while it takes a lot to be silent. And it pays off in the long run.

Tell us about Meera, your character in Yash Patnaik's 'Junoon'.
Unlike me, Meera is a go-getter. Also, while she makes things happen, I either wait for them to happen or just let it be. She takes her relationships seriously and is particularly possessive about her mother. I take my parents for granted, because I know they are always there for me.

Colors has announced the launch of Jai Jag Janani Maa Durga in the 7pm slot. While Life Ok's Mahadev continues its successful run at 8pm slot and Zee's Ramayan on the Sunday morning band also garners average viewership, afaqs! speaks to experts about the prospects of the new property.

While mythology was considered best suited for Sunday morning, Life Ok's Devon Ke Dev Mahadev was the first one to create hope for the evening time band in the genre. Recently, Colors has announced the launch of its mythological series, Jai Jag Janani Maa Durga in the 7 pm slot, replacing its daily soap, Kairi Rishta Khatta Meetha.

The show, produced by Sagar Pictures, the makers of Ramayan, Alif Laila and Shri Krishna, will showcase the avatars of goddess Durga in the various stages of her life.

The scheduling benefit

Jai Jag Janani Maa Durga

Is the channel running the show too early in the evening?

"Keeping the Tier 2 and Tier 3 cities in mind, the 7 pm slot is perfect," responds Divya Radhakrishnan, managing director, Helios Media.

Ashwini Kamath, general manager, Mediacom, Mumbai, seconds this and adds that 7 pm could be too early for the metros but in smaller towns, people tune into television as early as 6:30 pm.

It may be noted that some of the top rated shows have been featured on the early evening prime time slots, like Saathiya on Star Plus, which occupies the 6:30 pm band and Sasural Simar Ka on Colors at the 7:30 pm band.




Radhakrishnan adds that with this, the channel could be trying to build up the evening prime time series, with Sasural Simar Ka at 7:30 pm and BalikaVadhu at 8 pm. If the mythological property does well, it will be a chance for the channel to build up its audience base, starting 7 pm.

Vidhu Sagar, executive vice-president, Carat Media India opines that it has always been difficult to stretch the prime-time band in either direction: "We must note that the early prime time slots, that is, pre-8 pm, haven't been doing as well as the prime time. It is not easy to bring the traction to this time band."

Boon or bane?

The show is slated to be launched on a time slot that is just an hour before the telecast of Life Ok's mythological property, Devon Ke Dev Mahadev, at 8 pm.

Marketers strongly believe that Colors, despite being one of the top Hindi GECs, has not had a mythological show in its portfolio of late and this addition to the bouquet may be good for the channel. Also, some believe that Mahadev could actually drive the popularity of the new show, Durga and Shiva being deeply connected in Indian mythology.

Others say that the competition may even pull the viewership down due to the loyalty that Mahadev has garnered since its launch.

However, industry observers unanimously agree that one has to wait and watch the treatment given to the show. Sagar of Carat explains, "It is quite possible that the new show is well scripted and the production quality could be at par with that of Mahadev."

Radhakrishnan adds that inclusion of the new genre in the portfolio should help the channel to stand as a complete packaged GEC.

Kamath of Mediacom adds, "There are chances that both Mahadev and Durga are able to create their separate sets of viewers and not eat into each other's space. Mahadev excels not because of its genre but because of its storytelling. So may the new show."

The fatigue factor

Could this be a case of too much of a good thing - could two daily mythologicals lead to an overdose for viewers?

Citing the example of family fiction soaps, Radhakrishnan says that such serials are the best examples of a genre not entering into the fatigue zone, and adds that the experience of the mythological genre could be similar.

Giving the advertisers' perspective, media experts say that a genre or time band really doesn't decide on the rates, premiums or preferences of the money spenders. The only thing that can define the earnings is viewership figures, which can only be told after the show hits the ground.

Godsend for Colors?

'TV show with good story creates its own prime time'

producer Nikhil Sinha

Content rules over everything, feels "Devon Ke Dev Mahadev" producer Nikhil Sinha, who says it is more important to concentrate on creating and delivering the right story than to dwell over the time slot that a show gets on the small screen.

Sinha believes in making his own prime time slots with the right kind of shows.

"The story is most important for a show. The right story will do well at any time. Of course, the time (when a show is shown) also matters. But even at the right time, a bad show will not work. The content is paramount. I believe in making my own prime time slots," Sinha told IANS.

Having produced shows like "Baba Aiso Varr Dhundo", Sinha has also been a director of photography in shows like "Hatim", "Hotel Kingston", "Saat Phere", "Piya Ka Ghar", "Kaisa Ye Pyaar Hai" and "Kkusum".

Talking about his current show, "Devon Ke Dev Mahadev", aired on Life OK, he says that even though it is a mythological show, his team has tried to present it differently.

"'...Mahadev' is a game changer. Like when 'Balika Vadhu' came out, it was a different show on social issues and then many shows followed. The same way, '...Mahadev' has a different style of narration. After the success of this style of narration, many shows are moving in this direction," he said.

He is also happy with the fresh blood in the industry, and feels more newcomers should be roped in, albeit they suit the characters and follow directors' instructions well.

"The basic thing is that the actor must match the character in terms of looks. Secondly, he must understand his instructions even if he or she is a newcomer. They must be able to respond to instructions, must observe and then have the intelligence to understand and deliver," said Sinha.

Sinha's long term plan is to step into Bollywood production, but right now he is content with television.

"I had made a telefilm for Star Gold. I do have plans to make films for Bollywood... but not at the moment," he said.

It seems TV trend is soon going to take a shift from replacing all the saas bahu sagas with mythological and historical shows, which are getting appealed by the audiences these days. After the huge success of Imagine TV's Chandragupta Maurya, Life OK's Devo Ke Dev Mahadev, Zee TV's Jhansi Ki Rani, followed by Colors which is also gearing up for Jay Jagjanani Maa Durga, it seems TV scenario is on its verge to change.

And now the latest we have heard is that the owner of
Spice Telecom, B.K.Modi is coming up with his own production house named Buddha Films and they are gearing up for a series on Buddha.

This particular show on Buddha's life will telecast on Zee TV as the channel has given their approval on the same. The casting for this show is on and is hunting for the actor, who will play Buddha.

We tried hard to get in
touch with B.K.Modi but all our efforts were futile.

Toi article on the real goddes that was hidden in sonarika but came way sometime back

Actress Sonarika Bhadoria , who plays Parvati in Devon Ke Dev Mahadev , seems to have taken her role — of the powerful goddess — a tad too seriously.
The actress, like her on-screen character, can wreak havoc should you invite her wrath.
In fact, we hear that the entire unit is wary of getting into her bad books. Recently, she got a spot boy fired from the show.
And why? He dared to crack a joke at her craving for chocolates.
Says a source from the sets,"Sonarika had asked the spot boyto get her some chocolates. Whilegiving her the chocolates, he said,'Chocolate khaogi, moti ho jaogi' . This remark, made in a lighter vein, was enough to infuriate the actress. She yelled and hurled abuses at him and immediately ordered the unit members to fire him. The poor guy lost his job."
All attempts to reach Sonarika went futile.

TV shows that have created hysteria in 2012

TV shows that have created hysteria in 2012
Bade Achhe Lagte Hain
Shows come and go. While some fail miserably at the box office, others create a ripple in society, garnering perhaps more fans than a film can even attempt to do.

2012 has been no exception. While many shows did not see the light of the day, some continue to stand out in the minds of viewers. And nothing brings people closer than a show that helps families bond over content that stimulates emotionally, morally and intellectually. Here's a look at such shows of 2012.

Satyamev Jayate- Aamir Khan's debut show on TV has broken all records in the history of Indian Television. And rightly so. With 13 episodes, Aamir not only stirred the entire nation with sensitive social topics that are generally considered taboo in Indian society, but also managed to shake the political system of India and bring about a change. His opening episode on female feticide awoke the conscience of Indians throughout the world and caused the Chief Minister of Rajasthan ( Ashok Gehlot) to take notice. Even Ram Sampat's musical compositions at the end of every episode heightened the viewing experience for audiences.
Satyamev Jayate became the talk of the town with every politician, media house, viewers, social activists and members of the film and TV fraternity applauding the 'star' for his ground breaking research and he was also dubbed as the Indian Oprah Winfrey .

Diya Aur Baati Hum- For months in a row, Diya Aur Baati Hum topped the TRP charts and continues to rule the roost as the Numero Uno show in the fiction genre. Sooraj (Anas Rashid) and Sandhya's (Deepika Singh) unique circumstances and their growing love story on the show has struck gold with viewers. Diya Aur Baati Hum has won several awards including several awards for best television show in the fiction category.

Devon Ke Dev...Mahadev- This mythological show on Shiva has glued viewers of all ages to their TV screen. Mahadev is a recipe of success with the right storyline, costumes, actors, music, writer and director. And the episode that needs special mention is the one featuring Kali killing the demon Raktabija, which aired on 9th September 2012. That single episode has garnered the highest TRPS since 2011, beating all other shows across all genres. The show's popularity has also worked in favour of the male lead Mohit Raina whose success seems to have grown leaps and bounds with Mahadev.

Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon?- Barun Sobti and Sanaya Irani's chemistry on the show is what made Iss Pyaar Ko popular! Although the storyline did not have much meat, it was Sanaya and Barun's onscreen pairing that had fans going crazy about the two. So much so that when the makers deiced to abruptly end the show on 30th November 2012, they were bombarded by fans to bring the show back by popular demand. Although Sanaya Irani was reportedly unhappy with the abrupt ending, co-star Barun Sobti decided to quit the show to pursue his Bollywood dream. Sanaya and Barun have won the Best Jodi award at several award functions including the People's Choice Awards India, going on to prove that actors can be bigger than their shows.

Bade Achhe Lagte Hain- TRPs don't necessarily always decide the fate of a TV show. Such is the case of Balaji Telefilms' Bade Achhe Lagte Hain with Ram Kapoor and Sakshi Tanwar as the main leads. This mature love story has appealed to the newer generation too and Bade Achhemanages to be in the news for some reason or the other. First it was Ram and Sakshi's lip lock on screen and the consummation sequence that was the most discussed topic amongst fans and viewers. Then it was the five year leap on the show that took the form of a debate between the makers and some of the actors on the show who were not too happy with the time leap. When the hunt was on to introduce a new character opposite Sakshi Tanwar (eventually bagged by Sameer Kochhar), that too created much speculation. Then there were talks of Ram Kapoor quitting the show but to audiences' delight, Ram continues to be a part of the show. All we can say, Ram and Sakshi Bade hi Achhe Lagte Hain sabko.

Madhubala-Ek Ishq Ek Junoon- Madhubala-Ek Ishq Ek Junoon debuted in May 2012 as a tribute to 100 years of Indian cinema. This larger than life daily shot in Ramoji City (Hyderabad), is almost a serialized version of a film. With a huge star cast boasting of popular names likeVivian D'Sena and Drashti Dhami, Raj Zutshi, Raza Murad, Rakhi Vijan and the late AK Hangal,Madhubala may not boast of high TRPS but the treatment and of course Drashti and Vivian's huge fan following has made it one of the top shows of 2012. Whether the plot and storyline work or not, Drashti's simplicity and Vivan's charm is enough to keep the show running for a long time come.

Gumrah- End of Innocence- Gumrah also made its debut in 2012 and this crime based series that focuses on the youth has been received very well, causing other shows in the same genre to follow suit. A special mention must be made of Gumrah's host Karan Kundra who seems to be creating a new definition of popularity. Due to the good reception, season two was also launched with great pomp and show and with its success, season three will hit the TV screens soon.

Na Bole Tum Na Meine Kuch Kaha- This is one show that makes a comeback with season two because of the show's popularity. Although Na Bole Tum Na Meine Kuch Kaha was not an instant hit and took a while to build up, debutant actress Aakanksha Singh and fellow co-star Kunal Karan Kapoor managed to create a stir with their onscreen chemistry. The storyline and the entire cast and crew, especially the two children- Ashnoor Kaur and Vishesh Bansal added to the show's charm. When Na Bole ended in October (2012), fans went crazy demanding that the show should not go off air. And their wishes have been answered as Na Bole makes a comeback with season two in January 2013.

Viewers can only guess and speculate what surprises 2013 holds ins tore for them!.
