Out of the House…On the Stage! Carlyta Mouhini to perform live at Kolkata this New Year’s Eve!

 Displaying Carlyta (6).jpgDisplaying Carlyta (4).jpg
She has Latin-Indian origins, knows Jazz and Indian Classical, sings for rock bands and Bollywood and believes in the musical power of fusion. Singer Carlyta Mouhini & Bigg Boss Bangla contestant to perform live in Kolkata this New Year ’s Eve!  
Music runs in her blood, literally, after all, Carlyta Mouhini hails from a Latin background. “And the Latin know how to sing and dance!” says the effervescent singer, who despite having Latin origins, also has Indian blood which also explains her affinity towards Bollywood music!
And this multitalented singer-cum-musician pulls no stops when it comes to her music — she’s as qualified in jazz as she is in Indian Classical music. In fact, she even sees a connection between the two: “Jazz is like Indian Classical music, once you know the basics; you can use that knowledge in any genre.”
She’s been part of two rock bands — “Trishool” and “Shiva” — and has even won accolades for being a female singer in this male-oriented genre of music. And yet she can transform herself and become the voice of so many popular Bollywood songs. “Bollywood is popular all over the world and Bollywood stars are recognised world over by their hit songs.
What’s more, Bollywood music is now undergoing a drastic change, with influences of hip-hop and other Western genres. I guess my entry into Bollywood is coming at the correct time,” says the husky-voiced Carlyta.
   Talk about B’wood and its item numbers that Carlyta has a soft spot for. It’s the energetic rhythm of these numbers that sets her pulse racing. “But there are no ‘item’ songs left anymore because every other song is an item song!” she laughs, adding that the essence of good music is it’s melody because that will always remain in the minds of listeners. “I get self-contentment in singing something different; even if I make just one popular song, I’m happy, as long as it’s different, unique, and good, and stays in listeners’ memories.”
This New Year CARLYTA Mouhini will rock Kolkata like her stint in Bigg Boss Bangla house!

Vivek Mishra laughs at Gauhar Khan’s outrage against him!

Displaying Viveik Mishra (1).JPGDisplaying Viveik Mishra.JPG
“Dost Na Sahi…Dushman Hi Bana Liya,” Vivek Mishra laughs at Gauhar Khan’s outrage against him!
The naked yoga guru might have been evicted from the Bigg Boss house within a week after his power packed wild card entry, but the Bigg Boss 7 Contestant has managed to be in the news even after his short term stay at the controversial house, blame his straightforwardness & revealing some of the inside gossips!
In an earlier interview, Vivek Mishra claimed to have witnessed Kushal & Gauhar to have locked themselves in the bathroom during the former’s stay which both Kushal & Gauhar called Vivek’s claim to fame.
This bold & blunt statement made by Vivek Mishra deeply affected Gauhar to an extent that, in one of the interviews post the grand finale she confronted that she holds no grudges for any of the housemates but Vivek Mishra.
Least affected by the harsh comments from the Bigg Boss 7 winner, the quirky & witty Vivek exclaims, “I have never come across anyone as manipulative as Gauhar Khan. She has applied Saam Daam Dand Bhed to win the Bigg Boss title & look… She won. So it would not be wrong to say that she played a clever game. I did state that from the very beginning & still maintain it. Other housemates were of the same opinion but after her victory, I doubt they would make any statements against her.”
Further talking about Gauhar & Kushal’s PDA on national television, Vivek further makes his usual bold statement, “Isn’t it evident? I believe Gauhar & Kushal were smitten by lust mistaken as love. Now they are out let’s just wait & watch till when does that last for all I care!’ chuckles the yoga guru.
Vivek’s entry changed the dynamics of the show completely throwing light on Kushal- Candy Brar story, talking about Armaan Kohli’s live- in girlfriend that did media rounds for quite some time, “ Come to think of it… a lot changed after my entry. But audiences apparently didn’t find me entertaining & got me evicted. Had I been inside the house for much longer…you have no idea what you were about to witness. I have no qualms about such statements. Dost Na Sahi… Dushman hi Bana liya.”
