Karan Kundra enjoys 'The Serial'


As Arjun in Kitani Mohabbat Hai, this Punjabi guy won hearts of many girls. He was approached by Ekta Kapoor through a social networking site and since then, there's no looking back in this glam industry for Karan Kundra.

For someone who was (and still is) a businessman, life took a twist when he decided to take up acting. Karan has come a long way in four years by doing his bit and part not only in soaps, but in dance-based shows as well as Punjabi films too!

And currently, he is part of two shows on Channel V Gumraah - End Of Innocence and The Serial. Everyone has admired him in Gumraah as an anchor and narrator but now, it is something new that has come to his career as an actor, The Serial where he is playing himself. And as he puts it, "Nothing can be as difficult as being yourself for a show. It is neither anchoring, nor interview there's no script, no tracks absolutely nothing. It is too tough for anyone to do that." He goes adding, "For initial days, it was difficult and annoying to have cameras following you all the time whatever you are doing and wherever you go. But now, I've adjusted to this change and enjoying it a lot. It is a new and interesting experience for me as a person."

The Serial is a new and interesting experience for Karan Kundra

Punjabi guy Karan kundra has become a very familiar face of television industry and for fans after playing the role of Arjun in Kitani Mohabbat Hai.

After his debut show, karan kundra did not look back. Karan kundra has made his image not only in tv shows but he also appeared in dance-based shows and punjbai films too.

Currently,Karan kundra is winning the hearts of his fans with the youth-based crime show Gumrah-End of innocence on channel V as host and story narrator.

Butt karan's new show The serial is very different from previous ones. The Serial is a reality based show where Karan kundra is playing himself.

It was earlier very different and annoying for him to face cameras every time. It was a bit irking to show camera about whatever was done and wherever one went.

According to Karan Kundra, acting .anchoring , interviews are a lot more easier than being oneself in a show like The Serial.

But as time passes, Karan has adjusted with this change of his acting life.He is now enjoying the new and interesting twists and turns of life in The Serial.

After Big B, Salman its Karan Kundra on the list

Of late, it was an exclusive gossip on TOI.com about Karan Kundra and Madhura Naik's relationship break-off. Karan Kundra-The Kitani Mohabbat Hai boy also claimed fame through a cult show Gumraah on Channel V, where Karan with his unique style of hosting managed to gained larger eye balls. The show produced by Vikas Gupta's The Lost Boy Production too got famous and become the talk of the town in small period of time. 


Talking on Kundra's hosting skill and reach to the audiences a source informs, "Recently a survey was done by Star, where 9000 people were asked many questions about GEC's and was also asked who comes first in mind as a host of a non-fiction show. According to their results, Big B bagged the first place as host of Kaun Banega Crorepati,  Salman Khanstood second for hosting Bigg Boss and third was Karan Kundra for Gumraah, followed by Amir Khan for hosting Satyamev Jayate." 

Accordingly, Karan stood 3rd amongst the superstars, who made their presence on small screen. Wow! Congrats Karan. 

We contacted Karan Kundra to congratulate and he says, "The feeling is great because for the first time I tried my hands on anchoring and people loved me for that. I am loving that feeling for sure."

'The Serial' kills the clutter






As television channels vie for attention, switching from genre togenre in their quest for the perfect show, Now a show is set to carve a new telly genre in itself. The Serial is anon-fiction show in which India's most popular TV stars playthemselves as we are invited to a world where "coming-of-age" isconstantly at loggerheads with "coming up in life" and ultimately leads us to the complete truth about our favourite stars.

Seen through the eyes of a 17-year-old named Rohan, it shows Karan Kundra, Pooja Gor and Sara Khan among a host of other well-known television celebrities playing themselves in what is a first on IndianTelevision. As the 'struggler' Rohan embarks on his journey into themuch-sought-after world of the small screen in Mumbai, the realstories of tellyland unfold one by one. Stories which shock andsurprise, stories which last and linger.

Every character in The Serial has a role to play in creating the worldof this unique show. While Karan Kundra is "The Punjabi", Soumya Sethis "The Cutie", Pooja Gor is "The Lover" and Sara is "TheEntertaining" Khan. When they and others like them get together,what's behind the camera comes in front of it and with old truths comenew learnings in life.

The Serial is the latest step in Channel V's consolidation of being the only genuine youth GEC in the country. In the last three yearswith a slew of bold programming initiatives, the channel has had afive-fold increase in its GRPs; thus, becoming a force to reckon within the Hindi Speaking Markets. Already flirting with the top 10channels in the country, if it continues the pace of growth it hasmaintained over the last three years, within the next three years itwill be in the top 4 Hindi entertainment channels in the country amongthe youth, displacing some of the established heavyweights of the industry.

Says Channel V GM & EVP, Prem Kamath: "We are in a unique position aswe've carved a genre for ourselves, away from the niche of musicchannels that are loosely called youth entertainment. With The Serial, which is the most unique blend of fiction and non-fiction programming, we take our march to the next level. The individual stories are stark and they all come together to bring a contrasting perspective ofsilver screen stars, quite distinct from what we know of themotherwise."

What does internet mean to our TV stars?


In today's time internet is the most useful technology. It not only helps us in our daily lives but also helps us on our professional side.

Different types of people use internet differently. While some use it to surf social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter, some use it to read news and find out what is happening around the globe. And there are some who use it to for fun like playing games, watching online movies, videos, dramas, etc. To sum it up, internet has provided users with a great opportunity to eradicate boredom from their lives.

To find out how TV stars make use of this medium, we called up a few of them and asked how they use internet in their daily lives...

Punjabi Munda Karan Kundra, who is seen in Channel V's The Serial stated, "I have a maximum usage of internet from my phone. I am very vigorous on Twitter and Facebook. I do my banking work through internet. Since my parents and family stay far away, I keep in touch with them with the help of the iphone app Facetime. I also use Google map if I am stuck somewhere. "

www.emirates247.com/bollywood/take-one/india-s-most-wanted-dance-pair-sania-mirza-and-shoaib-malik-on-nach-baliye-5-2012-12-04-1.485803
 which claim that they are in it Embarrassed

Nach Baliye 5: Gurmeet Choudhary, Juhi Parmar, Rashmi Desai to participate in the dance reality show

But that's far from the entire list. Take a peek at the jodis who will perform on stage of this celebrity dance reality show on Star Plus

The fifth season of Nach Baliye is all set to kick off amidst loads of speculations. After rumours about Sania Mirza participating in the show with beau Shoaib Malik, we had Rekha being chosen as the judge for Nach Baliye 5. Alas, both of them turned out to be just that, rumours.

Confirmed news says that NB 5 will be judged by Shilpa Shetty, Sajid Khan and Terence Lewis. And participating in the show will be television jodis like Kritika Kamra-Karan Kundra, Sanaya Irani-Mohit Sehgal, Mihika Verma-Barun Sobti, Karan Mehra-Nisha Rawal, Debina Bonerjee-Gurmeet Choudhary, Rubina Dilaik-Avinash Sachdev, Rishi Dogra-Rakesh Bapat, Nandish Sandhu-Rashmi Desai, Juhi Parmar-Sachin Shroff, Divyanka Tripathi-Sharad Malhotra, Ashita Dhawan-Shailesh Gulabani, Rajat Tokas-Neha Saxena and Archana Taide-Praccheen Chauhan. And hosting this fifth season of Nach Baliye will be the previous season's winners Shaleen Bhanot and Daljit Kaur.

What's more, seeing Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 5's winner Gurmeet making his way into this list, makes us wonder if he will win the coveted title of this dance show too. What do you think, readers: What are the chances of Gurmeet Choudhary winning Nach Baliye 5?


India's most-wanted dance pair: Sania Mirza and Shoaib Malik on Nach Baliye 5

After the fame of Bigg Boss Season 6 another reality show is all set to roll onto the small screen.

Based on dance, Nach Baliye 5 will have couples both from Bollywood and television world shake a leg to impress their fans. The one who fails to do so will be eliminated.

Emirates 24|7 brings a list of stars we would like to see on the show.

Indian Tennis player Sania Mirza and Pakistani cricketer Shoaib Malik may be seen setting the stage on fire. According to reports the two may have also been approached by Star Plus on which the show will be aired.

A couple of months ago the pair performed on the item number from Salman Khan's 'Dabangg'. Both Sania and Shoaib set the stage on fire on a show hosted by Bollywood actress Raveena Tandon in an episode dedicated to Sania.

Producer Ekta Kapoor's favourite and actor of TV soap 'Bade Achhe Lagte Hain' Ram Kapoor would be the apt choice. With his size it get the audience excited to see him dance along with his wife Gautami.

Bollywood singer and composer Bappi Lahiri along with wife Chintari could also try their best to enthrall the audience. Inspite of giving several stage shows, Bappi Lahiri has never swayed with the music. The pair will definitely be entertaining considering their size.

Newlywed pair Debina Banerjee along with husband Gurmeet Choudhary who starred together in an Indian mythology show 'Ramayan' are the next best bet for Nach Baliye 5. Gurmeet has recently won another dance reality show 'Jhalak Dikhla Ja' where Madhuri Dixit was the judge. The pair together can give the other contestants a tough fight .

Gurmeet's competitor on the same show 'Jhalak Dikhla Jaa was Rashami Desai, what would be the former' s reaction on seeing the runner-up along with hubby. Rashami shot to fame after performing on some foot tapping tunes on dance show 'Zara Nach ke Dikha'.

Sharing the same platform with Rashami were Kritika Kamra and Karan Kundra who competed against each other on the girls versus boys dance face off. Kritika and Karan fell in love while shooting for their soap 'Kitni Mohabbat Hai'. Both have proved their skills previously and could be game for Nach Baliye 5 as well.

'Mile Jab Hum Tum' fame Sanaya Irani and Mohit Sehgal have always entertained the audience by performing on some foot tapping numbers in their serial. The adorable pair definitely could attract a large number of viewers.

A pair formed on the infamous show 'Rahul ka Swyamwar', Rahul Mahajan along with wife Dimpy could also shake a leg on 'Nach Baliye 5'. TV star Jay Bhanushali who host 'Dance India Dance Little Masters 2' with wife Ma hi Vij may be one of the contestants as well.

Watch this space to catch the latest gossip about the show.
