Workaholic Irani!!
[29 May 2007]

Smriti Irani, who is playing the lead in her serial Virrudh is so workaholic that despite of having a major eye infection, she reported on the sets for shooting. The scenes were important as during these scenes,Vasudha's father Dhirendra Rai Singhania was to be exposed before her daughter. The scene required Vikram Gokhale to try to kill his on- screen wife Zareena Wahab but unfortunately Smriti catches him red handed. Because Smirti is playing the character of Vasudha, her presence was very important and hence she came to the shooting despite of infection. Not only this, she went to shoot for another show ' Thodisi Zameen, Thodasa Aasman' on another set too after that.

As Santaram Verma, the director of Virrudh, says, ' Smriti was in bad shape and could hardly even stand. It was difficult to shoot but hats off to Smriti as she had the heart and the courage to go through it. We did a lot of profiles but we also had to shoot frontals. So, I just hurried my shots with the camera moving on her face and then immediately moving on to Zarina Wahab. It was quite visible but due to techniques and camera angles, we managed to do it.'

'I'm not worried about low TRPs'

Newcomer Mihika Varma would rather talk about how petrified she was of Vikram Gokhale and Smriti Iraani.
When Mihika Varma received a call to audition for the role of Smriti Iraani's younger sister in Viruddh , she thought it will be another one of those things where you audition and receive no call back. "I didn't have any formal training in acting, so I was quite surprised when they called me back for another audition and selected me for the role," she says with a smile.

Recalling the first day of the shoot, Mihika says that she was terrified of the idea of shooting with actors like Smriti and Vikram Gokhale. "I was really scared. I won't say that they were not strict with me because I did need to work hard. But they were really patient with me as well," she adds. But the one question that everybody asks Mihika is, how does she find working with Smriti Iraani? "Smriti m'am is superbly patient with me. I'm like her baby," she says.

But recently, there have been rumours that despite the show's good content, Viruddh is not doing well. Considering it's her first project on television, isn't she apprehensive of the show going off air? "See, I would be very apprehensive of that happening if people around me in the show show signs of apprehension. I'm not worried about the show's low TRPs because we're confident of our product," she says firmly. On a philosophical note, Mihika adds that people take time to accept change. "Viruddh is intelligent viewing and it will change the face of television. It's just that it will take some time," she says.

At the moment, the actress is content doing this one show and looking forward to signing some new projects. What about Bollywood? "I am interested in Hindi films but I won't run around producers for a role. I'll wait for them to come to me. I'm in no hurry ... " she concludes. Well, 'confidence' can sure be Mihika Varma's middle name!

Desi Race!!
[28 May 2007]

A desi version of the ' Amazing Race', one of the most popular reality shows of the world, is on the anvil. The show sets off in one part of the world and covers the entire globe, till one of eight pairs reaches the finishing line. According to sources, the Contiloe Productions is the force behind these efforts and the show will go on Air in September on Zee TV. The eight couples have been approached to take part in the show and they include Chetan Hansraj- Kushal Punjabi, Rajeev and Delnaaz Paul, Tanaz and Bakhtyaar Irani etc.

As a source working on the show reveals more about the show, ' The format is quite similar to Amazing Race, but there are more elements of adventure in the show. At the moment we are deciding on how to make the show more exciting and interesting. We will air the show once we have shot the entire race from beginning to end. We are looking at contestants who are ready to brave the outdoors, and go through the hardships to finish the race.'
