Khichdi Team To Spread Smile On ‘Rang Badalti Odhani’!


September 28, 2010 (Sampurn Wire): Khichdi-The movie team is very busy these days for the promotion of their film, which is left with just few days for its release. The funny team is making their presence felt in almost all the popular shows on the small screen so that they can promote their film to each and every household.

Recently, the Khichdi-The movie team visited Star Plus’ much loved show ‘Sasuraal Genda Phool’ and SAB TV’s famous show ‘Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashma’ to promote the film. Now, their next promotional platform is going to be Star One.

A source says to tellycafe, “Soon Khichdi Team will join the cast of ‘Rang Badalti Odhani’ on Star One. The characters like Hansa, Jayshree, Babuji will join the cast of the show. Their entry in the show, will take place as guests at Khanak’s place and they will spread smile all around.”

The source adds, “The shooting for the sequence has not been done yet and is expected to take place in the coming weeks.”

We called the producer of the show Yash Patnaik but he was found clueless about this. However, Yashashree Masurkar, who plays the lead role of ‘Khanak’ in the show, confirmed the news.

So, it sounds strange that the producer of the show is unaware of the development!

Munna Badnaam Hua in Baat Hamari Pakki Hai! – Barun Sobti’s ‘Chaddi Dance’


September 23, 2010 (Sampurn Wire): It seems that Dabangg’s sizzling item number ‘Munni Badnaam Hui…’ is has become the hot favourite these days on the small screen as for any peppy song sequence. Anyone and everyone is picking this song and none other. Perhaps for the sake of variety (or oneupmanship?) there is not going to be any munni to shake her… err…. legs!, but a munna who will make the audience go buts with his jatkas and matkas. Sounds interesting?

When asked, a source told, “Barun Sobti a.k.a Shravan of Sony TV’s ‘Baat Hamari Pakki Hai’ will be performing on ‘Munni Badnaam Hui’ in tonight’s episode. It’s going to a comedy sequence where Shravan, who is arrested by the cops will run away from jail while dancing on this song. As the song demands some skin show, Shravan will be seen in boxing shorts while doing the madcap routine.”

We confirmed the news with Barun Sobti himself, who laughed, “Yes, I have done a great Chaddi Dance which is spectacular. I have really enjoyed doing all the crazy steps for the song. Hope the audience likes the sequence, especially the Munna from the song.”

This is going to be one of the most hilarious acts not only in the show, but also in Television. So don’t forget to watch the odd munni of small screen…. Err… Munna of small screen!

He’s such a fabulous dancer, very heavily influenced by Shammi Kapoor. Zara socho , bhai itna achcha dancer aur bahen has two left feet! Everybody danced to songs from yesteryears and of course Munni badnaam was a favourite.”

‘Munni’ Shabana Azmi welcomed the biggest star turn-out at her birthday. Guests included the entire Bachchan parivar with family-friend Tina Ambani in tow.

Kinshuk Mahajan being groomed for ‘Chaand Chhupa Badal Mein’


September 16, 2010 (Sampurn Wire): Kinshuk Mahajan, who played Ranbir in ‘Bidaai’ is one of the rare actors to be repeated by Producer Rajan Shahi. Shahi has made four shows till date and never repeated his lead actors. Kinshuk Mahajan is being trained and groomed for the new character he is going to play in ‘Chaand Chhupa Badal Mein’ since last week, so that people don’t remember his old character, Ranbir, and see him as the new character, with a lot of spunk and freshness.

Producer Rajan Shahi doesn’t want to leave any stone unturned to present him well as he consented to be part of the show and showed loyalty in spite of him having offers from other show producers. Kinshuk told, “After ‘Bidaai’, I already had few other shows in my hand. But I chose ‘Chaand Chhupa Badal Mein’ because Rajan Sir always saw a conviction in me so he approached me and he said that Kinshuk only you can do this role.”

Currently, the ‘Chaand Chhupa..’ track going on is that of a love triangle between the three leads, Abhishek Tiwari playing Siddarth, Neha Sargam playing Nivedita, and Rishma Rochlani playing Divya, which will change. Kinshuk will start shooting for the show within a week’s time. The show started on a good note but TRP’s are falling now. Hope Kinshuk’s entry makes a difference not only in the ratings, but also changes the equation of all the characters so that there will be a new kind of spunk and romance in the show!

September 15, 2010 (Sampurn Wire): Shilpa Tulaskar needs no introduction; this talented actress has done many shows like Shanti, Palchin, Dil Mill Gaye, Ladies Special and many others.

Now Shilpa is all geared up to enter Rajan Shahi’s ‘Chaand Chhupa Badal Mein’ this week, in a special cameo. Shilpa is very happy and thrilled about this role, as she is getting a chance to play not only a Marathi lady, but also to get dressed in the typical nine yard sari with proper traditional ornaments. Tulaskar told in a candid chat, “I was dressed in complete Marathi get up last time for serial ‘Ladies Special’ when we had this special episode for Ganpati festival. But this time I will doing a special cameo role.”

Elaborating about her character she says, “Nivedita (Neha Sargam), the lead of the show, is in a big dilemma. I’m her Dadi’s friend’s daughter and when my character enters the show, she brings Ganpati Bappa at Nivedita’s place. You can say that I play a mediator for Nivedita. I help her understand all the rituals of Ganpati’s pooja. Soon I make out that Nivedita is in some kind of a mess and so my character tells her that Lord Ganesha removes all worries from everyone’s life, so pray from your heart and tell him all your problems. He will definitely answer all your prayers by showing you right path. Nivedita believes me and follows my advice."

Shilpa’s character is a cameo for one episode and is likely to bring in a high point in the show in this Ganpati Ustav.

This week, all episodes will have God’s presence in one form or the other and will be the guiding force for Nivedita.

Mob Goes Amok In Hyderabad Mall, Sonakshi Jostled In The Melee, Upset Salman Cancels Hyderabad Events


September 13, 2010 (Sampurn Wire): Hyderabad is one city that Salman Khan won’t forget that easily. It’s the city where last week on Tuesday afternoon Salman, Sonu Sood and Sonakshi Sinha were mobbed, jostled, bruised, and even thrown to the ground, and there was nothing that Salman and his 30 bouncers could do to control the hysterical mob.

The situation got so out of hand that Salman not only left the scene with his colleagues, but in an obvious fury he even cancelled another major event scheduled in Hyderabad for the same evening and headed straight for the airport to get home as soon as possible.

An eyewitness says, “Salman hates being pushed around in crowds. He feels he is there for the junta, so why do they need to jostle? But what happened at the In-Orbit mall in Hyderabad infuriated Salman. Sonakshi got pushed around. This was intolerable to Salman. He has made a promise to Sonakshi’s father that he will look after her. Salman can’t bear to see his promise to the concerned father being compromised in any way. He immediately headed to the airport with her and caught the first flight out of Hyderabad.”

Confirming these incidents Sonu Sood, who accompanied Salman and Sonakshi said, “All three of us were pushed around. Sonakshi and I even fell to the ground. I have bruises on my arms and legs. She too was injured. The bouncers could do nothing. Salman was like, ‘This is too much. We can’t handle this, let’s get out of here.’ He cancelled the other event and we headed back to Mumbai by an earlier flight than the one we were booked on.”

Sonakshi, who was recovering from the frightening tryst with Hyderabadi hysteria at her home on Wednesday morning was yet to understand the enormity of the situation.

Says Sonakshi, “The crowds in Hyderabad did go out of control. You know how it is when Salman is in public. Everyone wants a picture with him. The security was absolutely ineffective! We had to cancel the second event in Hyderabad and return to Mumbai.”

Sonakshi had to go to Hyderabad unescorted by female family members. Her mother, who generally accompanies her, had to stay back in Mumbai due to a serious illness in the family.

Sonu Sood puts what the girl went through in a nutshell. “I guess Sonakshi is learning early in her career how dangerous fan attention can be.”
