Mehndi and shaadi

Posted online: Friday, April 08, 2005 at 0000 hours IST

Mehndi and shaadi
The rate at which small screen weddings are being solemnised soon they will give the filmi weddings a run for their money. After Kumud and Kshitij (KKusum) tied the knot in traditional Marathi style, it's time for Yeh Meri Life Hai's Pooja and Ashmit to take the saat pheras. As a prelude, a mehndi ceremony was shot recently. In a small chat, Pooja said that the mehndi ceremony was picturised as per schedule and everything went fine. Shama who plays the role of Pooja says, "Pooja is a simple girl who aspires to be big. She's getting married to a producer/financer and one day she will definitely turn a director." Talking about the feedback she's getting of her character Shama informs that she has been getting several calls from young girls who ask her to solve their problems. So, now she's all set to become an agony aunt.

Upen, Celina brand ambassadors
Super model Upen Patel who was anchoring Cook Na Kaho on STAR One and Celina Jaitley who's currently one of the hot Bollywood sirens in Humse Dosti Karoge on STAR Gold have been signed up by national gym chain Zafs Fitness Centre, as Brand ambassadors. The soon to be released campaign has been shot by ace photographer Rakesh Shreshta who has been quoted as saying that this is one of the hottest campaigns ever shot. The campaign will be released by mid-April all over India.

Business... update
Don't know what it is about this business but it just refuses to kickstart. We are talking about Zee's new show Business Baazigar. For some reason or the other, their ambitious show is being postponed for the umpteenth time. It was supposed be aired from March 18 and later shifted to mid-April. Now, though the exact date has not been fixed, the show will make its presence only in the first week of May, that is, if it's not postponed again!

Killer looks
She is the original style diva on the small screen. Sudha Chandran made an impact as Ramola Sikand in Kaahin Kissi Roz with her weird bindis and chunky jewellery. Later her witch act in Zee's Tum Bin Jaon Kahan gave her further scope to experiment on her look. Now in SaharaOne's Prratima she's playing a vamp dressed in heavy silk sarees draped the Bengali way. Her jewellery is as loud as her red sindoor which rather than being a suhag ka nishani looks like it's sending out danger signals. Then there's K Stree Pali Hill where her eye shadow and liner alongwith her contact lenses change with the colour of the saree she's wearing. Truly phsycedllic. But we must say nobody does it better than this trend-setting actress...

As good as it gets
As Kali in Kkusum she may be creating havoc in Kumud's life but in a forthcoming episode of Rihaaee, Rucha Gujarathi is all set to play a victim of abuse. As an 18 year daughter of an alcholic father, Rucha's shown to be a disturbed child. A friendly neighbour, a 40 year old man whom she addresses as uncle takes advantage of her vulnerability and in the guise of being sympathetic molests her. After playing a vamp for so long, the pretty girl is now yearning to do a role which is neither grey nor black but completely white. "I want to be a good girl," she grins. Maybe this is the beginning.
Meanwhile in Kkusum, with Kumud getting married to Kshitij, Kali is happy that Garv is now all hers. But Garv will reject her and angered at his refusal, she will take revenge on him by entering into a contract marriage with Nakul...

DD's Chaudah Phere
Doordarshan has started airing a new serial Chaudah Phere from April 2. The serial will be telecast on Saturdays at 8.30 pm on the National network. Produced and directed by Ajay Mehra, the serial has in its cast Sanjeev Seth, Mona Ambegaonkar, Preeti Khare, Surbhi Tiwari, Akhil Mishra, Govind Namdeo, Anjan Shrivasta, Tom Alter, Sudhir Pandey and Arif Zakaria. The story revolves around Col Pandey, the uncompromising business tycoon who is quite modern in his business life but totally traditional in his personal life. He is the driving and decisive force in the lives of his wife Nandi, mistress and daughter Ahilya. All three are at the receiving end of the trials and tribulations of the contradiction and conflict between modern entrepreneurship and traditional ideology of Col Pandey.

Zee News' unique travel show
Zee News is starting a travel show that is quite unique. Raahi Matwale will showcase viewers' travelogues on its channel. Instead of an anchor travelling to different places, this time it will be the viewers who travel with the show. Confused? Well, the channel will show home videos of the viewers who have captured their trips on a handycam. By a rough industry estimate, almost 10 Lac Indians use a handy-cam. The channel will invite viewers to send their home made videos out of which one or two selected videos will be aired. The channel will re-edit them as per programme needs making the show extremely interactive. The series beginning on Sunday April 3 will be aired every Sunday at 12:30 pm.

Remix's music album
Tia, Anvesha, Yuvi and Ranvir of STAR One's Remix are all set to release their first music album. The April 7 episode will have the foursome perform at a pub. The episodes from April 4 to 6 will see the kids practicing for the grand finale to be executed for the music company. They will perform on the track 'Mast mast...' sung by Channel V Pop Band AASMA and composed by Pritam. Rose Audio Visual Pvt. Ltd. which is producing the serial is the first one to shoot music videos in a serial.

Sarrkaar... replaces Piya... on Zee
First it was called Aaj, then it changed to Swaarth and now it is finally going on air as Sarrkaar-Rishtoon Ki Ankahi Kahani. The new title seems to be inspired from the Amitabh-Abhishek starrer Sarkar directed by Ram Gopal Varma. The small screen Sarrkaar... which is a political drama marks the comeback of Divya Seth to the telly after a long gap. It also has in its cast Mouli Ganguly, Rohit, Ronit Roy and Tisca Chopra. Written by Shobhaa De, the series is about women, their political ambitions and has all the makings of a potboiler. The soap replaces Piya Ka Ghar which is being shifted to the afternoon slot. It starts airing on April 18, Monday-Thursday at 8.30 pm.

Hai Mera Dil completes 1000 shows
When Ank began in 1976, there was no regular activity in Hindi Theatre in Mumbai simply because the audiences were just not there. Hindi theatre had come to be considered something highbrow and heavy-duty; anything but entertainment? With the emergence of Prithvi Theatre in 1978 and with the encouragement from the late Jennifer Kapoor and Shashi Kapoor, Ank and other Hindi theatre groups finally started flourishing. Prithvi Theatre had to be etched onto the entertainment map of the city. Around the same time, Dinesh Thakur had just become popular in films and it was his impetus that led the group. Something innovative was the need of the hour. A play with a catchy title and substantial hilarious content that didn't offend and could be easily identified with. So Ranvir Singh's Hai Hum Na Honge became Ank's Hai Mera Dil. It had Dinesh playing a hypochondriac whose tendencies and an overheard conversation on the telephone lead him to believe that he is going to die soon. Being the loving husband that he is, he secretly plans with his friend to provide a husband for his wife before he passes on to the other world. Into this situation steps an old college candidate. But her husband's strange behaviour rings alarm bells for her and she is now completely convinced about the other woman in her husband's life. Dinesh's directive to his actors was simple, they were to forget they were acting, they were to be as natural as possible, as they would be in everyday situations at home. The comedy arose from the simplest of situations.
Hai Mera Dil which opened in Lucknow has over the years successfuly held shows all over India and has recently completed 1000 shows.
