The Diwali that was

With the spirit of festivity all over, indya.com spoke to some of the Nach Baliye couples and asked them how they celebrated their Diwali.


For the couple who have been married for more than two decades, Sachin and Supriya, the celebrations were like any other Maharashtrian family. The day started with traditional Laxmi pooja, which was followed by distributing gifts amongst family, friends, under-privileged and those who have been serving them. However, the couple is strictly against bursting crackers, as it not only gives rise to noise pollution but it also leads to increased child labour.

Apoorva-Shilpa and Archana-Parmeet had a joyous Diwali as they celebrated the festival by playing cards and bursting crackers, together. For them Diwali was all about having fun and being safe.

The "very much in love couple" - Neeru and Amit - celebrated the festival by going on a binge, eating a variety of sweets and a lavish meal, they enjoyed every bit of the festival. Apart from having fun, they also spent some time distributing goodies amongst the not-so-privileged section of the society.

For Maninee and Mihir, this Diwali was filled with excitement, as they were busy looking out for a bigger house. Maninee, in a spirit of Diwali good wishes, gave a message to all her fans: "This Diwali, go wild and crazy. Burst crackers and spread light. Let the light cheer your spirits and not dampen it."

When we spoke to Poonam and Manish, they sounded excited as their child turns a year old this Diwali. This year, they have one more reason to celebrate as they have shifted to a new house. Poonam's Diwali message to all her fans: "Don't burst crackers, they lead to pollution. Have the auspicious Laxmi pooja, so that goddess Laxmi showers her blessings over you."

Just as these couples enjoyed the festival of glitter and shine, we hope all our readers had a happy and a safe Diwali and a prosperous New Year.

Out with the old, in with the new
(Posted on 16 November 2005)

Star One has suddenly become a happening channel. Nach Baliye continues to do the dance of the damn cool. The TV stars have never looked or danced better.

The Great Indian Laughter Challenge and now Nach Baliye have turned around the fortunes of Star's newest channel. The ratings on Star One are attractive, and now the channel in collaboration with the irrepressible Ekta Kapoor, is hell-bent on swarming the fledgling channel with goodies.

The first one to benefit from this season of harvest on Star One is Amarr Upadhyay. He's been finalised to play the lead — the role of a singer — in Balaji Telefilms' Krimson Sky.

"It's a very young very hip very now serial, and I'm very excited about it," says Amarr who's also been finalised to be in Ravi Chopra's Virasat, which goes on air on Star Plus after Kaun Banega Crorepati ends its current innings.

Says Amarr, "It's been a long haul for me. I started on TV, got my fame on Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi, then tried my hand at films. Now I'm back. I realise television is where I belong. I made wrong decisions about my career because of lack of guidance. Now I want to build on my career on television."

Amarr started his second innings on television with a brief appearances on Ekta Kapoor's Kasauti Zindagi Kay and Kkusum. Krimson Sky will be his real comeback vehicle on television.

****

Star One has several new serials coming up. Says Star India COO Samir Nair, "Ekta is doing a number of new serials for Star One. Kya Hoga Nimmo Ka is a Cinderella–like daily. Then there's Karbon Kopy, which will be on the lines of X Files."

But right now it's Star One's two new shows that have me all keyed. India Calling treads the same territory as Star Plus' Shanno Ki Shaadi. Full-blooded lassi-and-paratha tale with a blithe-spirited Punjabi ambience that seeps into the very core of the characters.

The first episode had the whole cast flying kites with the boisterous matriarch (Himani Shivpuri) leading the 'brag' pack. This joyous event was followed by a sagaai where the characters danced so hard you wondered when tragedy would fall on the proceedings. Sure enough the bride of the wedding decided to play truant.

"I'm not coming," she announces to her horrified sister who tried hard to look… er, horrified. And succeeded only partially.

The problem with these serials is they try to cast a smell…. and I don't mean spell. The aroma of the sarso kA khet just spreads across the horizon. Take it or leave it

Nach Baliye gets its share of trouble

Mihir and Maninee Misra were the third couple to get ousted from the show Nach Baliye on Star One. We all saw how their choreographer Darren Das commented on Malaika Arora Khan's judgement and how upset he was with the points given to Rajeshwari and Varun Badola when compared to his couple's points.

Well, there is more to the story. Apparently, Darren had a major showdown with Malaika where he criticised her judging abilities and the way she was allotting points to couples whose performances were not up to the mark. Saroj Khan jumped to Malaika's defence and this led to a big fight between the judges and Darren. All this was chopped on the editing table before screening the episode. Seems like Nach Baliye's cup of controversies runneth over

Major fire averted in Rajesh's home on Diwali

The festival of lights could have spelled doom for Rajesh Kumar, who plays Rosesh in Star One's Sarabhai Vs Sarabhai. Apparently, Rajesh and his wife Madhvi Chopra had gone for dinner to a restaurant, leaving the diyas burning inside their house. A gush of wind caused the curtains to fall on the diyas leading to the curtains catching fire. Thankfully, a neighbour saw smoke coming out of the house and alerted the maidservant who possessed the house keys. This averted a major fire that could have proven to be disastrous for the talented actor.

New kids on the block



Sohan Master and Rujuta Shah enter Remix as new students at Maurya High



Sapana Patil



Looks like Star One's campus drama Remix is having its cast remixed. Manav Gohil, who is slated to play the stern professor Mitra will enter the soap on Monday. And accompanying him are two new students, played by Sohan Master and Rujuta Shah.

Master says, "I play a character called Raghuram Deshpande. He enters Maurya High but finds it difficult to mingle with his classmates because of the inferiority complex he nurses, owing to a low social class. He is as good a student as the rest are but he can't handle the cool dudes of the college with their long hair."

Talking about his looks and style on the show he says, "I will appear a simpleton. But Shrishti (Arya, the producer of the show) wants me to speak in a typical Maharashtrian accent, which I am trying to adopt."

"The story then develops to show him forming a gang against Ranvir, Tia, and the others. He picks fights with them, and this will then portray his negative side," he continues.

Surprisingly, Master had participated in Zee Cinestars Ki Khoj. "People used to recognise me then. Now with my entry into Remix I hope to be noticed again. I have been told that my character is very strong, I hope to perform well," he says.

Master can currently be seen on Zee's Paalkhi as Jimit and will also act in Asha Parekh's Akhanda Saubhagyavati. He will enter Remix after a few weeks.

The other actor who is slated to make an entry on the show is Rujuta Shah, who has also made a few serials earlier. She says, "I play Shyla Seth. She is a combination of beauty, brains and attitude. My opening scene will create a boom on the show. My entry will make the boys go gaga over me. In the coming days, I will start liking Ranvir and this creates a rift between Ranvir and Tia. I will be shown to be good to others but rude to Tia. That will reflect my negative side. As for the way I am to look – very hip."

Shrishti Arya summarises the track saying, "The new term has just begun at Maurya High. So we have these students coming in. We have conducted extensive auditions for these characters. Raghuram Deshpande is a scholarship student and Shyla Seth is the rich girl." Can't wait to get back to school…

Star to seriously think about regional strategy in India
(Tuesday, Nov 22, 2005 - 07:00 pm)
Televisionpoint.com Team
In an interview to Media Partners Asia (MPA), Star Group CEO Michelle Guthrie said the company needed "to seriously think about a regional strategy in India ... we are looking at strategies based around our existing content."

Talking specific of some channels within the Star bouquet, she said that Star One, a general entertainment chanrnel targeted at younger audiences is "starting to work and build on the leadership position we have with Star Plus, but it still has a long way to go". Star One is beginning to challenge rivals Zee TV and Sony in terms of audience share, and in certain metros, has surpassed both, she said.

Driven by the success of shows such as "The Great Indian Laughter Challenge", Star One has grown its market share from 7 per cent in 2004 to 27 per cent in Q3 2005, versus 42 per cent for Sony and 31 per cent for Zee. The channel aims to overtake both Sony and Zee by end-2005, she said.

As for Star Gold, Guthrie said that the channel was "gaining strength in India" with the shifting of Hindi movies from Plus to Gold, resulting in re-branding of the channel as a destination for premium Hindi films.

But, Guthrie said, Star is a bit "wary about the lack of advertising in the regional markets (in India)" as pricing power is limited and the overall pie remains small. "We are still constrained by the fact that TV ad spend (in India) is only 0.20 per cent of GDP," she explained. We're still constrained by the fact that TV ad spend (in India) is only 0.20 per cent of GDP," she explained.

Though Guthrie said that there "should be at least some level of exclusivity, otherwise it (would) seriously distort the market for programming" when asked about the must-provide clause in India, she also indicated negotiations have been going on with Dish TV, 20 per cent owned by Zee Telefilms, for providing Star's channels.

"We've been negotiating with Dish TV for a long time. The issue is not about first mover advantage (in other words, we sign an agreement for our channels only when Tata Sky launches), but more about our concerns over their conditional access and subscriber management systems and piracy," Guthrie said.

As already reported by Televisionpoint.com, Star Group's turnover during Q1 FY 2006 ending September grew by 22 per cent year-on-year (y-o-y), driven primarily by advertising revenue of Kaun Banega Crorepati-2 in Star Plus.

According to Hong Kongbased publishing and research firm Media Partners Asia's estimates for Q1 FY 2006 showed that Star India turnover could grow by 26 per cent y-o-y to $378 million.

Laughter originated four million years ago: Study

Asian News International

London, November 25, 2005
Sunil Pal may have recently become 'The Great Indian Laughter Champion' in Star One's stand-up comedian's show, but our ancestors mastered the art more than four million years ago.

Scientists from Binghamton University, New York, have revealed that cavemen invented slapstick humour two million years ago, with their funniest visual gag being something like 'tripping over a rock'.

Nearly four million years ago they turned to humour to relieve stress from all that hunting and gathering - and were grunt-like 'play panting'. It took another two million years before their face muscles developed enough for laughter. They perfected slapstick to communicate feelings before proper language evolved.

"Laughter was used for a number of things including conveying embarrassment," The Sun quoted Professor David Sloan Wilson as saying.
