Sargun Mehta in Bigg Boss 8?
This is quite surprising…indeed it is!!!
If sources are to be believed, the talented and beautiful Sargun Mehta (12/24 Karol Bagh, Phulwa, Balika Vadhu), is all set to become a participant in Bigg Boss season 8, India’s most controversial reality show airing on Colors and produced by Endemol India.
There is no doubt that Sargun is a popular television figure and her presence in the house will be an interesting watch for her fans and viewers in general.
With a tom boyish nature and a Delhi no nonsense attitude, how Sargun would react living in a difficult situation with strangers, would be a treat to witness.
Sargun is married to television actor Ravi Dubey, who is currently seen in Jamai Raja.
We did buzz Sargun for a confirmation but she remained unavailable.
Other TV actors who are said to be a part of this season of Bigg Boss are Gautam Gulati, Karishma Tanna and Praneet Bhat.
The show hosted by Salman Khan premieres on 21 September.
Bandhan's elephant loves chocolates
The telly world has a new entrant who loves to eat chocolates - it is not a kid or a woman, but an elephant.
A baby elephant, which is one of the main characters of Zee TV's new show “Bandhan … Saari Umar Humein Sang Rehna Hai”, not only loves to gorge on chocolates on the set, but also has his favourite brand.
“People will be surprised to learn that Ganesh (elephant) is extremely fond of chocolates and his favourite is Perk, so it is stored in bulk on our sets,” said actor Aditya Redij, who essays the role of a forest ranger in the show.
Shooting with an animal has loads of lighter moments and recounting one such experience, Aditya said:
“Once Ganesh and I were required for a sequence, but he would not stay in one place. So, the trainer told me to offer him a banana, I did that and the shot was successful.
"For the next shot, I gave him yet another banana and the shoot went well. Then, for the third shot, I hid the bananas. Ganesh walked over and gave me a nice little rap on the side with his trunk, almost like he were giving me a 'tapli' … this caught all of us completely off-guard and the entire unit burst out laughing.”
The weekend show is aired at 7 p.m.

Sony TV launches Humsafars
One a vivacious, lively, talented girl from Lucknow, the other an intense and complicated ruthless business tycoon! What happens when destiny entwines their lives together? Affirming the saying that opposites attract, Sony Entertainment Television's latest offering is a beautiful love story of two contrasting individuals – Humsafars. Premiering on 22 September at 10:30 pm, Humsafars chronicles the lives of a budding fashion designer Arzoo Nausheen Khan and a multimillionaire owner of a fashion house Sahir Chaudhary.

Ashwini Kalsekar aka Mahamanga bids tearful goodbye to Jodha Akbar
It was an emotional moment on the sets of Zee TV’s historical drama Jodha Akbar (Balaji Telefilms), when Mahamanga played by the acting heavyweight Ashwini Kalsekar shot for her last sequence on the show. The current track of the show has Mahamanga behind bars after Jodha exposed her sinister designs and Akbar brutally and ruthlessly kills her son. Mahamanga has been seen reeling under the loss of her son and is consumed with sorrow. The show next week will see her health deteriorating further and the otherwise fierce and scheming matriarch succumbing to death.
In the show, before her death, Mahamanga expresses the desire to meet Akbar and being addressed as Ammi jaan one last time by him. Akbar obliges and she dies in his arms. Ashwini in real life is very close to Rajat Tokas (who plays Akbar on the show) and found the scene even more overwhelming to shoot as both knew in the heart of their hearts that this would perhaps be their last scene together on the sets of the show.
The sequence was shot without any glycerine used by any of the actors present on the set. The atmosphere was grim and Ashwini gave a touching performance leaving not just the cast but even the crew in tears. The entire crew was emotional about bidding farewell to one of the finest and most loved actors on the show and all of them were seen hugging her a goodbye on the last day.
Given that this was her parting shot, Ashwini was very particular in getting the sequence right and for it to come out as real and natural as possible. She in turn discussed and worked out every shot with the director using her expertise to give creative inputs to ensure a smooth flow. This led to the entire sequence being shot in one take without any cuts. The moment the director cut the shot, there was an uproar on the sets as the whole unit got up to give her a standing ovation for her last act.
Ashwini on her departure from the show said, ‘The crew had become my family. We all spent hours together on the sets. It was a very emotional moment for me as I had really got attached to the entire cast, the crew and even this beautiful set in Karjat. Mahamanga’s track has come to a natural end and I am content with the way the character was sketched and shaped up. I now look forward to some new beginnings.’
Paridhi Sharma, who plays Jodha said that she idolizes Ashwini for not just her exceptional acting abilities but also the way she conducts herself in person. She even went on to touch her feet post the wrap up.
The Jodha Akbar team gave Ashwini a warm farewell and hopes she will miss them as much as they will miss her!
I am 100 percent happy with my small role in Dawaat-e-Ishq -Karan Wahi
All those who are planning to watch Daawat-e-Ishq for Karan Wahi, brace yourselves for a big disappointment. The good looking actor has a minuscule role in the movie which is sure to leave many of his fans deeply disappointed. But Karan himself is anything but disappointed. The actor is more than happy with his Bollywood launch pad and says he knew what he was getting into right from the very beginning .
"Though I am present only for a bit in the movie, I am happy. When I had signed the movie, I was told my role would be a 15-20 min one. When you shoot, you end up shooting a lot and some things work on the edit table while others don't. Fortunately, not too many of my scenes have been edited out and at least 98 percent of whatever I had shot has been retained in the movie. I knew I wouldn't be getting the girl in the end but I had no complains then and none now. I am 100% happy with my small role," says Karan who has appeared in television shows like Remix, Dill Mill Gayye, Kuch Toh Log Kahenge.
Karan's delighted that his character in the movie plays a crucial role in delivering a message. "It's a love story with a message. The entire thought process was to show my character, Amjad redeeming himself in the end by understanding that dowry is a menace and ruckus. So if that message is delivered, I would feel it's a job well-done."
What's bringing more cheer is the reaction from his fans, all of whom have unequivocally expressed their disappointment at his short role. Says Karan, "My phone hasn't stopped ringing yet and all those who have watched the film have been saying that they wanted to see more of me. I consider that as a big compliment."
While Karan's cool with his not-so-big YRF debut, he is now keenly looking forward to UTV's Babbu Ki Jawani which will be his first solo lead movie. "I am fortunately playing Babbu in it. It's a nice romcom and we have finished shooting 80 percent of the movie and have plans to release it next year. I have also been signed on by UTV as their talent."
As for now, Karan's planning to watch the movie tonight with his industry friends and keeping his fingers crossed hoping that his pals would like both him and the movie.

Aryeman Bhatia was the 'first choice' to play king Vikramaditya in Singhasan Battisi
Sony Pal’s mythological, historical and fantasy based show Singhasan Battisi produced by Dheeraj Kumar and Zuby Kochhar has been impressing audiences with its enigmatic plotline.
But many are not aware that the lead role of king Vikramaditya, which is currently being portrayed by Karan Suchak (Star Plus’ Mahabharat fame), was first offered to Sahara One’s Ghar Aaja Pardesi actor Aryeman Bhatia.
Yes, the actor was almost finalized for the role but he could not take it up due to date issues.
Aryeman confirmed the fact “Yes, it is true that the character of Vikramaditya was offered to me first but then things did not fall into place. It is a very good show and I would love to work with Dheeraj sir in the future.”
Well, such is life!!!
Gadha Prasad's Yamraj avatar on SAB TV's Chidiya Ghar
Chidiya Ghar (Garima Productions) airing on SAB TV is the story of a fun-loving family comprising of different members with their unique mannerisms. As per their different names, all the members exhibit one unique trait that defines their personality and behavior.
Gadha Prasad played by Jitu Shivhare in the show is one of the most affable and comical characters. In the recent track, Gadha Prasad will take on the form of the Lord of Death – Yamraj! In an interesting sequence wherein Babuji would tell the simpleton that Yamraj looks like him and Chitragupta looks like Kapi, Gadha Prasad will fall asleep and in his dreams look upon the Lord of Death in his own form. Things will become fascinating when Gadha Prasad will ask for intelligence as a boon from Yamraj.
Jitu Shivhare who plays the role of Gadha Prasad said, “My character is a simpleton at heart and believes anything that’s told to him. Enacting the role of Yamraj was an interesting experience as I had to get into the imposing form of one of the most feared Gods from Hindu mythology. Even the entire change in look and costume set it apart from my regular appearance.”
Chidiya Ghar airs every Monday to Friday at 9pm.

Bravo: Indraneil Sengupta quits smoking
Hot as hell Indraneil Sengupta deserves a pat on the back. The Tumhari Paakhi actor has successfully managed to kill his smoking addiction and has kicked the butt.
He shunned the cancer sticks after letting it touch his lips for 13 long years.
“Initially I used to smoke a packet full of cigarettes then gradually I reduced it to six then four but I was never able to stop it completely. My wife Barkha (Bisht) kept telling me to quit but it never happened.”
So what made you finally quit? “On my last birthday I went to Singapore for some work. Over there smoking is prohibited in certain areas and I stayed three days without smoking. Then I thought to myself that I can actually live without smoking and from that time I haven’t touched cigarettes.”
How difficult was it to stop? “It was a bit difficult but I had promised myself to be nicotine free by 40.”
So do you see any changes in yourself? “I have always exercised and followed a proper regime but yes after quitting smoking I feel much clean and healthy.”

And folks, Ashish has gone on to win season 7 of Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa.
He impressed the judges and garnered maximum audience votes.
Out of the final four contestants, namely Mouni Roy, Karan Tacker and Shakti Mohan…and Ashish himself…the former three bit the dust.
