Telly soaps are supposed to be primarily about women, for women and of women. But very rarely do you have female reel characters that have a larger than life appeal about them and who stay with you once the 20 minute episode has ended for the evening.

In the last two decades since satellite television changed entertainment viewing, there are only a handful of female stars who've marked their attendance and made a somewhat lasting impact on viewers, even after the shows have gone off air.

Barki (played by Seema Bhargava) of Hum Log: The typical girl next door who came from a middleclass family in Delhi and had to fight to eke out a living, even as she battled her ordinary looks and continued to shower affection on a family that depended heavily on her. Television's first official soap, that aired for a year and became a integral part of everyone's lives during its airtime making Seema, a talented theatre actress from Delhi a recognized face on TV in the mid 80s.

Rajni (played by Priya Tendulkar) of Rajni: As the female crusader of the 80s in the garb of a sharp-tongued homemaker who fights the corrupt system in her own way and settles matters, Priya Tendulkar lived Rajni's role and made her the first iconic screen character who had a huge fanbase outside the telly screens too. And to think, the role of Rajni had first been offered to Padmini Kolhapure who didn't want to try television after which it was given to Priya who breathed life into Rajni and made her a much loved face.

Priya Kapoor (played by Neena Gupta) of Saans: Neena, directed and produced the show that revolved around a married woman whose life gets thrown out of gear when her husband falls in love with a younger woman and dumps his family. The show revolves around Priya's quest for her own identity and coping with the trauma of being cheated. A heartwrenching performance by Neena without any OTT histronics, made the show a channel-topper during its stint on small screen.

Dr Simran Mathur (played by Niki Aneja) of Astitva -Ek Prem Katha: A beautiful gynaecologist falls in love with a much younger man and becomes a social pariah. Simran and Abhi (played by Varun Badola)'s marital life had its share of ups and downs, but what made her special to many was the way in which she lived it, on her own terms, even walking out of the relationship with her dignity and self-respect intact.

Shanti (played by Mandira Bedi) of Shanti: Another firebrand female crusader, Shanti was a young journo clad in modest churidar kameez with a mission in mind. To find the man who wronged her mother. Her star turn as Shanti made Mandira the first telly super star followed by a small role in Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge,

Tulsi (played by Smriti Z Irani) of Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi: A slim but spirited young girl who found herself becoming the centre of attention in the family she married, Tulsi was TV's first 'Mother India' kind of character, especially when she shot her errant son dead to save her daughter-in-law. In this show that ran for seven long years, Smriti was the one woman who pulled it off on her shoulders almost singlehandedly, so much so that even after she was temporarily replaced by Gautami Kapoor, the storyline had to be altered to bring her back in 2007, shortly after which the show breathed its last.

Hansa (played by Supriya Pathak Kapoor) of Khichdi, Instant Khichdi:Plump, bumbling housewives don't normally get to play female leads in a show. But Hansa who could barely say two sentences without making a fool of herself and giving her lack of fluency in English away, always brought a smile by her sheer presence.

Jassi (played by Mona Singh) of Jassi Jaisi Koi Nahin: The office ugly duckling who turned into a beautiful swan and had her own fairytale ending with the Prince Charming completely smitten with her, the bespectacled, Jassi with braces and oily hair tied in a messy ponytail was the first screen character who gave the K-soap divas, Tulsi, Parvati and Prerna a run for the TRPs.

Anandi (played by Avika Gor) of Balika Vadhu: Some 10 year olds get lucky. Avika Gor was one of them. She played the female lead in a show about child marriage that shocked the nation with its content and shot Colors into a TRP-topping high making it a strong number 2 channel. The child Anandi was funny, spunky, bubbly and even child-like at times.

Gopi Bahu (played by Giaa Manek) of Saath Nibhana Saathiya: Giaa might be shaking her leg in a dance show today and Saath Nibhana... might have aquired a new Gopi Bahu, but it was the petite (then) 19 year old Giaa, who gave the character her identity and following that she enjoys.

TB: Pawan shankar prefers to be centre of Attention

Actor Pawan Shankar has his priorities set and says he accepts only those TV shows in which he gets to play central character.

pawan shankar

Actor Pawan Shankar has his priorities set and says he accepts only those TV shows in which he gets to play central character.

"I choose the shows where I am the centre of attention. I choose the show that way. If the show revolves around me, I take up the show. If the attention is not paid on me, it is very difficult to accept such roles. In between, I did two-three shows which I did not enjoy very quickly," Pawan told IANS.

He played a lawyer in "Siddhant", a taxi driver in "Vicky Ki Taxi", and currently he is seen in Sony's "Kyaa Hua Tera Vaada" as Pradeep who is involved in an extra-marital affair.

Pawan agrees that it has grey shades, but viewers think otherwise.

"People are still not considering it negative because they are thinking that man has an affair but he has a good heart and that's because of the circumstance and other women, he got carried away. I have moved to the grey role," he said.

Asked if the track of "Kyaa Hua Tera Vaada" is moving towards a predictable plot by showing an extra-marital affair, Pawan said the idea was always to show the extra-marital affair in the show.

"Well, it was always on extra-marital affair but the bonding between the couple had to be shown so that audience can feel the pain of seeing Pradeep and Mona separate. So, that was the theme," he said.

"We are trying to be different than other shows, we are trying to stay close to reality. My character made it official that he has a girlfriend, but in many families people do not make it official, but the situations and the circumstances are the same," he added.

Small Screen apes big; creativity down the tube

Saturday, July 07, 2012 | 12:54:07 PM IST (+05:30 GMT)    

Where has all the creativity gone, wonder television viewers who find that an increasing number of soaps have annoyingly familiar stories, taken from one Bollywood blockbuster or the other.

Where has all the creativity gone, wonder television viewers who find that an increasing number of soaps have annoyingly familiar stories, taken from one Bollywood blockbuster or the other.

From "Kya Huaa Tera Vaada" to "Hitler Didi", many serials are taking a cue from the movies, whipping up storylines and adding some small screen flavour to keep the track going for as long as possible.

The twists and turns in "Kya Huaa Tera Vaada" are akin to Salman Khan's "Biwi No. 1"; the latest track in "Main Lakshmi Tere Aangan Ki" reminds viewers of the wife selling the husband in the Anil Kapoor-Sridevi starrer "Judaai".

If in the 1997 "Judaai" Sridevi sells her husband to Urmila Matondkar to become rich, in "Main Lakshmi...", the protagonist Lakshmi sells her husband Arjun to his ex-flame Soumya to bail her in-laws out from a financial crunch.

In Ekta Kapoor's "Kya Hua Tera Vaada" about an extra marital affair, Pradeep (Pawan Shankar) decides to move in with his ex-flame Anushka (Mouli Ganguly) and divorce his wife Mona (Mona Singh). The way Mona is handling the situation bears uncanny resemblance to how the wronged wife (Karisma Kapoor) reacted in "Biwi No. 1".

"As a writer, when we keep writing stories and there are times when it comes to a point 'now what?' Then producers and writers take the decision that such a story can be incorporated and we tend to experiment with the storyline," said writer Rajesh Joshi, who has penned shows like "Kyunki S", "Kkusum" and "Pavitra Rishta".

"Though it might prove to be a TRP safety measure to some extent, one isn't sure how prominent will it be. The success depends upon the popularity of the show and its characters and how we incorporate it (new storyline) in the script," he added.

Mona admitted that the story of "Kya Hua..." and ""Biwi No. 1"were similar but said the treatment was different.

"To a certain extent I agree because the man did have an extra-marital affair and there was infidelity (in the film). But that was a three-hour movie and it got over, but this is a serial and it will last for one or two years at least."

The story of Life Ok's show "Dil se di dua.Saubhagyavati Bhava?" is close to "Daraar", which starred Juhi Chawla, Arbaaz Khan and Rishi Kapoor. In the serial, Karanvir Bohra plays the over-possessive and violent husband, Harshad Chopra is the saviour and Sriti Jha is the distressed wife.

Zee TV's "Hitler Didi" recently wrapped up a track, which was loosely based on the film "Khosla Ka Ghosla", where the protagonist Indira's father sells the family home to a builder without telling his family. And how she fools the builder to get the house back. The serial has lots of incidents similar to the hit film.

The trailers of the forthcoming "Rab Se Sohna Isshq", to be aired on the same channel, shows a guy trying to reunite with his newly wed wife with her lover, pretty much like Ajay Devgn wooing Aishwarya Rai in "Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam".

If that is not enough, news is that TV czarina Ekta Kapoor is planning to make a show based on Shah Rukh Khan-Kajol starrer blockbuster movie "Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge".

She is even planning to bring the epic romance of "Jodhaa-Akbar" on the tube.

There is therefore no fixed time to end a show and to keep the story going, makers have to introduce new tracks, says director Ravindra Gautam.

"In a film, you tell a story in three hours and wrap it up, but in television shows you don't know for how long would the show go on? How many tracks can you incorporate?

"There are very few combinations when it comes to making a TV show. The volume of television is much more than films. There are times when the stories go out of stream and then you think of different tracks."

Remarriage tracks in prime time shows

Amrita Mulchandani, TNN | Jul 8, 2012, 12.00AM IST

Remarriage tracks in primetime shows
A still from Balika Vadhu More Pics
Winds of change are blowing in Tellytown as actors get remarried.

Anandi (Pratyusha Banerjee) is being encouraged by her dadisa to remarry in Balika Vadhu - Kacchi Umar ke Pakke Rishte as her husband Jagya gets married to Gauri, Megha Vyas' (Aakanksha Singh) father-in-law wants to get her remarried in the show Na Bole Tum Na Maine Kuch Kaha as she is a widow, Aarti Scindia (Kratika Sengar) of Punar Vivah - Zindagi Milegi Dobara got remarried as her in-laws were keen on seeing her settled after her divorce, in Amrit Manthan, Princess Amrit (Adaa Khan) gets married to Navi Bhangu who was earlier married to her youngster sister Nimrit, in Byah Hamari Bahoo Ka; Rajnibala Vaishnav's (Shrenu Parikh) in-laws looked for a suitable match for her — their own son Krish, but now there are news that her in-laws might get her remarried to some other guy soon, while in Kya Huaa Tera Vaada; Jatin (Hiten Tejwani) proposed to divorcee Mona Pradeep Singh ( Mona Singh) and she agreed to marry Jatin after her father-in-law encouraged her for the same.

The remarriage concept did gain attention in the Bollywood flick Babul where Amitabh Bachchan who played a father-in-law, was keen on getting his screen daughter-in-law Rani Mukerji remarried after his son dies. Why has remarriage suddenly become such a popular track on television? Producer and writer Shashi Mittal of Punar Vivah says, "It is about trying to bring social awareness through entertainment. Indian viewers connect with television in a strong way and most of them identify with these characters, so what they endorse in our shows gets accepted."

Prashant Bhatt, fiction head of a GEC says, "Remarriage in Balika Vadhu was always on the cards. The story needed to move forward. Today, both on and off screen, a daughter-in-law has a different equation with her in-laws. Elders have understood that a girl can't be a widow or divorcee and lead a single life forever. Indian families are changing, so are their mindsets. Television soaps are just reflecting the trend. The tracks shown on television are not just fictional, they take inspiration from people and situations around us."

Actor Aanjjan Srivastav who's playing a supportive dad-in-law who encourages his screen bahu to remarry in Na Bole Tum Na Maine Kuch Kaha says, "Widow remarriages were not acceptable in the past, but now society is more open about this. If reel father-in-law talks about remarriages, it will create awareness. The coming years will see more changes in our family structure. As our society has become more progressive, so have TV shows."

So how are the audiences reacting to something that they haven't seen much in the past? "The audiences are lapping up the remarriage tracks. In that way, it's a welcome change," says Shashi. Agrees Prashant. "Audiences are accepting such new-age tracks in soaps and seem to be enjoying them ."

In the end, if pulp-entertainment can also bring in fresh thinking and garners TRPs, it becomes a double whammy for everyone!

Actress Mona Singh loves everything about Mumbai's monsoon - be it driving around in her car or eating roadside goodies with a hot cup of tea!

Mona, who is seen on Sony's "Kya Huaa Tera Vaada", finds monsoon the most romantic weather. It compels her to go out on a long drive.

For gastronomic delights, she loves to gorge on bhelpuri and chaat, with 'cutting chai'.

Mona also feels the perfect way to spend a monsoon evening at home would be by watching either a horror movie or a romantic film like "Kuch Kuch Hota Hain", said a source.

TOI: The new Showstealers

The new showstealers
Samir Kochhar
Dramatic twists, heaps of tearjerking melodrama and lots of misunderstandings — 18 new entries in daily soaps are responsible for all that and more!

Storylines on the small screen have their share of twists and turns, but what really keeps the audience hooked to a show is the entry of a new character, which takes the show to a different level altogether. That probably explains why, have been as many as 18 'new' entries in daily soaps in recent times! Dil Se Di Dua...Saubhagyavati Bhav? catapulted to new highs (read better TRPs)

after the entry of hottie Harshad Chopra; Siddharth Shukla's entry in Balika Vadhu followed by a new love track helped the show reach the No. 2 slot (June 20 - July 3) on the TRP charts. Some recent new entries include Harshad Chopra and Neha Mehta in Dil Se Di Dua... Saubhagyavati Bhav?, Neha Sargam in Punar Vivaah — Zindagi Milegi Dobara, Samir Kochhar and Deepti Shrikant in Bade Achhe Laggte Hain, Neha Jhulka and Rubina Dilaik in Saas Bina Sasural, Seema Deshmukh in Saath Nibahana Saathiya, Aamir Dalvi in Chhal — Sheh Aur Maat, Vrinda Dawda in Dil Dosti Dance, Mayank Gandhi in Ek Doosre Se Karte Hain Pyaar Hum, Khalid Siddiqui and Prinal Oberoi in Na Bole Tum Na Maine Kuch Kaha, Manish Naggdev in Madhubala — Ek Ishq Ek Junoon, Mohan Kapur in Amrit Manthan, Varun Kapoor in Humse Hai Life and Hiten Tejwani in Kya Huaa Tera Vaada.
While there is an intrigue factor with their emphatic entry sequences in the show, which gets it due dose of dramatic twists, actors seem to be finding the role play exciting. Actor Neha Sargam says, "I'm glad that I'm doing a role that is a departure from what I've essayed so far. She has a mind of her own and will fight for what she believes in. That's what attracted me to the role."

Actor Khalid Siddiqui says, "Na Bole Tum... is a popular show with a nice concept that's treated differently. The current track is interesting and I'm cutting in and making things more interesting."

So what do regular actors feel about the entry of another actor and stealing a little time of their show(s)? Actor Aishwarya Sakhuja says, "Divya's (Neha Jhulka) entry has brought about an interesting track. A story always has its ups and downs and Toasty has always lived with challenges." New entrants also help reduce the burden of lead actors at times. Actor Mouli Ganguly seconds the thought, " I'm very happy with Hiten's entry in the show. A new character can certainly help to hype things. But after that, it is always the story and whether people are happy with the track or not."
With new actors entering daily soaps and bringing new twists the audience is all set to witness interesting drama sequences on the tube.

Neha Sargam Demure Neha Sargam is the runaway bride in Punar Vivaah, a character meant to act as a catalyst to start off the romance between the lead couple!

Samir Kochhar Samir Kochhar makes his fiction debut on TV with Bade Achhe... as a savvy biz tycoon who is Sakshi's new love interest.

Harshad Chopra Harshad Chopra is Raghav, the docile Sia/Jhanvi's saviour and possible love interest in Dil Se Dua... Saubhagyavati Bhav?. That he might eventually end up as the main male lead is being popularly believed of late!

Rubina Dilaik Rubina Dilaik in a new, revamped avatar with curly locks and a warm smile is Smiley, touted to be an important character in Saas Bina Sasural.

Siddharth Shukla Siddharth Shukla as the new man in the female protagonist Anandi's (in Balika Vadhu) life. His entry has upped the popularity quotient of the show. The zillion buck question: will he be the new male lead?

Anushka plots against Mona in Kya Huaa!!
Purva Desai, TNN | Jul 17, 2012, 12.43PM IST

Anushka plots against Mona in Kya Huaa!
The rivalry between Mona and Anushka seems to get more intense in Balaji Telefilms' Kya Huaa Tera Vaada on Sony TV.

Mona ( Mona Singh) has a mammoth task before her as she has to complete the order of making 1000 t-shirts which has been assigned to her. In tonight's episode, Mallika (Ekta Saraiya) gets to know that Anu's (Mauli Ganguly ) mother is helping Mona and feeds her against Mona. That's when Anu calls her mom and tells her that Mona is trying to woo Pradeep (Pawan Shankar) back.

Anushka goes a step further by calling one of the women at her mom's organization: Naari Shakti and they halt the production of the shirt orders. This leaves Mona shocked.
But Vineet (Darshan Pandya) steps in to save Mona and clarifies the air with Debashri (Anu's Mom) and convinces her that it was him who forced Mona to work for him and join the company against her wishes. Debashri promises her that although she can't call the women back, she will get them to the factory unit the next morning. This leaves Mona very happy!

The next day, the Nari Shakti women are back in full force and Pradeep is happy with the turn of events and proudly tells Anu that Mona has done it and the 1000 t-shirts are ready!
Pradeep realises that his excitement is too obvious and Anu feels betrayed by her mother. She calls Mallika and tells her that she cannot let Mona win. She further adds that the order cannot reach the warehouse and she has to stop Mona!

In the upcoming episodes, Mona along with Pammi, Suri, Vineet and the Nari Shakti women cheer as the tempo moves out of the gate. But a wicked Anushka watches all this with Mallika and the two women grin at each other in the car that is parked at a distance from Mona and team.

But all of Mona's hard work goes down the drain as she later learns that the tempo carrying the t-shirts has been hijacked and has yet not reached the client. Anushka and Mallika are extremely happy with their plan. Will Mona lose her job?

When contacted, both Pawan and Mauli remained unavailable for comment.
