The controversial year so far saw much of masala, entertainment, fights and gossips. The one amongst them was the reality show Bigg Boss Saath 7 though now has ended, but viewers have always got entertainment through such show. Hence we decided to list down few shows which have created much hype in the TV industry...
Bigg Boss, bigger controversies
The indomitable and controversy's kid host of the showSalman Khan himself said exasperatedly that this may be the last time he was hosting Bigg Boss. What is bringing the infallible Khan down? All the fights and controversies in the house. Not that this was anything new but this year took the cake along with the icing and the cherry for the fights.
The temper tantrums of Armaan Kohli, the row betweenKushal Tandon and Andy when the former was accused of assault, Kushal walking out and his alleged girlfriend Gauahar Khan following him after a ranting and fainting spell... Kushal's fight with Tanisha Mukherjee. Kushal re-entering and being evicted midweek. Armaan Kohli's fight with Sofia Hayat after which she came out to the house and filed a case on him for physical assault. Armaan was arrested from the house, released on bail and returned. Just the tip of the iceberg, this list!
Gutthi went katti with Comedy Nights with Kapil
The duo of Gutthi-Palak lost its charm with Gutthi (Sunil Grover) walking out of the show. No one knows the real reason still and everything is just a conjecture. Whether it is being blamed on Sunil becoming too big for his boots, asking for a bigger remuneration, or starting his own show on another channel, all possible reasons one could think of have been named. The character is patented and cannot be used on any other channel, so the Colors' legal notice says. Apparently, Sunil will be doing his own show on Star Plus soon.
Karan Singh Grover's Qubool kaboom
Always the rockstar, Karan Singh Grover! But this time it didn't go down well with producer Gul Khan of Qubool Hai, which Karan plays Asad. There were reports of his unprofessional behavior, late arrivals for the shoot, and even in inebriated state. The channel and makers had had enough and showed him the door. There are talks of defamation lawsuit from Karan who claims he couldn't be there for shoots because of health issues and because was meant to be on the show for just a year. Karan has now been replaced by Raqesh Vashisht.
Sonarika Bhadoria bids adieu to Devon Ke Dev Mahadev
The ethereal beauty Sonarika Bhadoria won everyone's heart as Parvati in the Life OK show. A year later, it came as a shocker when she left the show apparently because she was unhappy with the remuneration revision she got on the show after which she started throwing tantrums. Sonarika was replaced by Pooja Bose, who has also left the show now!
The ever loved Anandi was all grown up and Pratyusha Banerjee stepped into the shoes of Avika Gor after the five year leap and became an instant hit. And then after three years of playing Anandi and seeing many high points in the show came the news of her walkout from the show like a bolt from the blue. Supposedly the hectic schedules took a toll on Pratyusha's health and she was tired of playing the ideal bahu too. But another theory is that she quit for a career in Bollywood and that the production house was fed up of her starry tantrums. She was seen in Bigg Boss Saath 7recently.
The Saraswatichandra sad saga
Everyone was quite curious about Sanjay Leela Bhansali's television venture Saraswatichandra, which was touted to be a big show because of its grandiose. First the lack of chemistry between Jennifer Singh Grover and Gautam Rode made the headlines as the reason for the show not doing well. Reportedly, Jennifer didn't want to do intimate scenes with Gautam because it would miff her husband Karan Singh Grover.
Then Sanjay gave the show up after there was news of plugs being pulled on the show because of low ratings. Balika Vadhu fame Sunjoy Wadhwa has now taken over the reign and things are said to be better!

Is it odd to ogle god? Well, not if he's being essayed by the unbelievably well-built Mohit Raina.
The actor who swept various television awards for his lead role in 'Devon ke Dev - Mahadev' this year, is very comfortable with the praise that has come his way for his looks.
But what he continues to be touched by is the way he has affected people's lives. "I have realised people expect a lot from me. They have seen a Shiva inside me. I have had people come to my doorstep, my gym, on my sets seeking blessings. Once when I was in Varanasi, a man in his mid-40s came to meet me. He touched my feet and asked for blessings. I was so stunned. I hugged him because I found it heartwarming. That was a memorable moment."
Playing god is not easy, but Mohit found the transition from portraying dramatic characters to that of Lord Shiva smooth; largely due to his own belief system. "I have been a big devotee of Lord Shiva even when I was (back home) in Jammu. When I was selected to play Mahadev, I knew it was a huge responsibility. Playing Mahadev was no easy task but my belief in him gave me a kind of confidence that people have grown to relate to. The best part is that apart from Mahadev, I get to play his avatars as well. I have portrayed more than 18 avatars; some godly, some human. It has helped me a lot to grow as an actor."
From being a 108-kg youngster to shedding almost 30 kilos in a year in the run up to his Grasim Mr India participation in 2005, Mohit hasn't had it easy. His early steps into the world of acting weren't all that impressive. He had roles in films like 'Don Muthu Swami' and the TV shows 'Chehra' and 'Ganga Kii Dheej'. Yet none of them catapulted him into the league of super successful protagonists the way Mahadev did.
Did he ever imagine that a mythological show would be his claim to fame? "Honestly I did not think about it. All I knew is that I had to put more than my 100 per cent. I shoot almost all seven days a week and I try to give my 100 per cent every day. I will not say I am a fan of the show, but I am a big fan of Shiva."
In 2013, Mohit was also lauded for his negative portrayal of an avatar of Lord Shiva, Jalandhar. While playing an avatar of the deity was not unusual for the actor, juggling both Mahadev and Jalandhar was a feat. "It was challenging to play Mahadev and Jalandhar at the same time. I received an award for my role of Jalandhar. This year has been promising and I hope I can better my performance in 2014. I also hope my fans continue to envelop me with love."

A lot of tension is brewing up between Kittu and Anand in DJ's popular show Ek Nanad Ki Khushiyon Ki Chaabi...Meri Bhabhi on Star Plus. Good looking and talented actor Vipul Gupta who plays Anand in the show, is quite happy playing different shades of Anand in the show. TellyBuzz spoke to Vipul to know more about his character and about his point of view on the current relationship status between Kittu (Esha Kansara) and Anand.
Talking about the way he feels his character has evolved so far, Vipul says, "I have played various characters in my earlier shows and the good thing about this character is that it has so many shades to portray like from being an emotional and angry brother, understanding son to a loving son but still there has been a lack of chemistry between him and Kittu and they have tried to know each other well. This character has so many shades rather than just being a romantic hero. So, this character has lots of developments with so many shades."
According to the ongoing tracks of the show, Kittu and Anand are not on talking terms with each other. So when probed Vipul about the same he tells us, "They have never prioritized their relationship. Parents and his sister (Kanchi Kaul) has always been a priority for Anand. He is a simple guy who supports what is right but he never prioritized his marriage. On the other hand, Kittu always prioritized the happiness of her sister in law but she never listens to her husband nor took out some time for him. So, they both didn't prioritize their relationship with each other. It's very real in a today's time. A husband wife relationship is mostly portrayed like Ram Sita in television but these problems do come in real life especially when living in a joint family. They both are right as well as wrong in their own ways. This is the high point of the show which is going right now that they both are wrong even being right because if they didn't prioritize their relationship as husband and wife, they tend to fail and might face a situation like what Kittu and Anand are facing right now."
Vipul is quite happy playing the character of Anand which he feels is very fulfilling as an actor and he adds, "The show is doing quite well even if it airs in it's toughest slot as the other popular shows like Balika Vadhu, Jodha Akbar and Devon Ke Dev. Mahadev etc. also air on the same slot which are doing well and are quite successful. So, it was a tough competition for us but we have picked up and it feels good. I am getting an amazing response from UK too. I have done shows like India Calling in which I played a brat and I played some other characters too in some other shows but I am getting acclaimed as an actor through this show. I am getting lots of love from the people. I have got to play different shades through this character like I have laughed, I have cried, I have done action which is very fulfilling as an actor."
Way to go Vipul!

TV actor Saurabh Raaj Jain, better known as Lord Krishna of Mahabharat, says he is happy with the way his career is shaping up
Going on strong
Saurabh Raaj Jain is a popular name on television. After being a part of serials like Parichay, Devon Ke Dev Mahadev and Uttaran, Saurabh is now enjoying playing lord Krishna on screen in Mahabharat. "I have been working on television for almost a decade now. After my first show Remix, I took a break of two years to complete my studies since I was in the second year of my college. As an actor, whatever came to me I just took it. I never thought ki iss serial se mujhe kya milega ya ussko karne se kitni popularity milegi. For me it was just my passion for acting. Though I had been around for a very long time, it was the serial Parichay that brought me into the limelight. The serial was a turning point in my career and I will always be thankful to Ekta (Kapoor) for that."
Waiting to lead
And though Saurabh has worked in many serials and has gained popularity too, he is still to be launched as a lead. But the actor says he has no complains. "I didn't have that thing in my mind that I want to be launched as a lead in a serial. The only thing on my mind was to act. Even though other than my education, I don't have any backup plan, I am okay with my career graph. So far, with the grace of God, I have been getting shows one after another. Post my break, I did a stint in Kasamh Se, then immediately after that I did Jai Shree Krishna, after that I did Meet Mila De Rabba and so on. Working for money was never a problem for me."
Not many people know that Saurabh was kept on hold for a year and paid for the entire period for the role of Krishna in Mahabharat. "I shot the pilot episode with producer Siddharth Kumar Tewary which was directed by Nikhil Sinha, who is the producer and director of Devon Ke Dev Mahadev. So, after that pilot, he himself came to me and said 'You are my Krishna'. And I was like 'Ok, we will see'. Then the project, since it was so huge, was put on hold for a long time and so was I. I was given a lump sum amount every month and told that I can't do any other project. To play Krishna, I was put on hold for almost a year and was paid to do nothing," he says with a smile.
