Prachi Tehlan to star in Sony SAB’s new horror comedy



On your way to success, you meet many new people. But remembering them and acknowledging their support later in life is not what everybody does. However, Prachi Tehlan is one among those who hold an immense amount of respect and love for every single person who contributed to making her who she is. Out of this respect and love, Prachi recently signed a new project – a horror comedy Tv show- despite her decision of staying away from television for a little while and saying no to big shows coming her way. 

Titled Band Baja Bandh Darwaza, the show is being produced by Maqbool Khan and Amitosh Nagpal under Tuk Tuk Picture Company. It will be on air from January 26, every Saturday and Sunday.

“When I got a call from the makers of this show, I just couldn’t say ‘No’ also because of the amazing script and this beautiful character they approached me for. Since last few months I have been focussing on films, and a break from television was a conscious choice.  But how could I deny working with people with whom I started my journey in this industry. Maqbool sir handled me like a small baby guiding me through all the minor details of acting and helping me mould myself into that setup.” said Prachi, adding, “I have emotions attached with this team and I really don’t mind confessing that I signed the project purely for the team involved in it. It’s their first project as producers and I am glad to contribute to their new initiative.


Talking about her experience working with the team again, Prachi stated, “It is always fun to work with creative people like Maqbool sir and Amitosh sir. They hold great experience in the field and have done some phenomenal work in the past years. For example, besides assisting in the direction of over 100 music videos, Maqbool sir has individually directed CG heavy shows including ‘Pyaar Ki Ek Kahani’ and ‘Fear Files’. Also, he has helmed some high voltage action drama in shows like ‘Diya Aur Baati Hum’ and ‘Prithvi Vallabh’. On the other hand, Amitosh has written lyrics for movies like ‘Oye Lucky, Lucky Oye’ and dialogues for ‘Hindi Medium’. He is as amazing an actor with amazing sense of humour. He has acted in Indian films like Dabangg, Besharam, Phillum and many more.”

Prachi will be essaying the character of a Haryanvi girl for one of their weekly series. The teaser is already out and the show will be telecasted on February 2 and 3, 2019. The show will see popular film actor Mukesh Tiwari making his debut on television. Besides him, other actors of the show are also known faces of theatre and film industry. As for her films, Prachi, the shoot of Mamankam will resume from January after a long gap. Also, Prachi has been traveling to Hyderabad for a few Telugu projects. There is a lot to come from her side. Just wait and watch.

Oscar Nominated Director’s film based in Kashmir finds itself in a tug of war for Film Certification


A few weeks ago, news reports had surfaced where Ashvin Kumar, India’s youngest Oscar-nominated director of the short film Little Terrorist found himself in a place where no filmmaker wishes to be. Being a creative medium, films have had a long-standing scale of issues with the CBFC over the years. With increasing methods to curb a voice, CBFC has always made news in terms of its varied reasons to reject or give incorrect certification to several films. And Ashvin Kumar’s next, No Fathers In Kashmir is currently is such a lurk. The film has had its own history now with the CBFC since July when the film first applied for certification. A process which usually would take 60-68 days took over 100 days to even get a certificate. The CBFC tagged the film ‘A’ in October despite it following all the lawful guidelines crafted by the board. 


No Fathers in Kashmir is a love story of two innocent 16-year-olds who are met with the same fortune of having lost their fathers who have disappeared in Kashmir with no certainty of their return. Interestingly Ashvin has made two other short films earlier Inshallah Football and Inshallah Kashmir both of which were first banned by the film certification board and later went on to win a National Award for each. Now when the filmmakers for their latest, decided to question and request for a revision of the certificate to U/A, the matter was applied to the FCAT, the final decision-making body for film certification. Upon the investigation of the matter, the FCAT in its screening which was held on 11th December, demanded the CBFC revising committee to give the film a proper hearing, in a written order asked them to watch the movie again and give it its justified certification within 10 days, which was on 21st December. Since then the CBFC has already removed the order and asked for a further extension to give its order on the movie. 



This happens to be the worst nightmare for a filmmaker, who’s invested time and creativity apart from money in making a film, especially when it’s independent. The tug of war between these two film certification bodies has left the makers of No Fathers in Kashmir in a very mucky space with no certainty of a release for its film. The film stars the two kids Zara Webb, Shivam Rana in addition to having an impressive ensemble cast comprising of Kulbhushan Kharbanda, Soni Razdan and Anshuman Jha.

Amidst all the drama & fun tasks in the finale week on the show, social media is abuzz with loyal fans of the television's most controversial show rooting for their respective favorite players & making the race spicier & we can't tell who has bigger chances of taking away the trophy.

The Naagin actor, Karanvir Bohra, has time & again been labelled 'Mahan' ( generous on the show & for his inmates).  And we love this video of television actress who's known for her bold style playing the fiery police officer Chandramukhi Chautala as she has come out supporting Karanvir.  Kaushik in her video makes a comparison, as she says 'Mahan hona achhi baat hai kyunki Mera Bharat bhi Mahan hai'

Check out her video :-

Sara being the youngest member on the show, Rohit and Ranveer kept pulling her leg and revealed lot of secrets on the show. When Kapil quizzed Sara on how she bagged the movie, Rohit revealed how Sara followed-up with him and insisted that he should take her in the movie. The way Rohit narrated the story left the audience and splits. 

A source from the set revealed, “Rohit narrated the entire incident of how Sara chased him through messages and thereafter approached Karan Johar. Later, Gattu (Abhishek Kapoor) also spoke to Rohit upon Sara’s insistence that Rohit should watch the rushes of Kedarnath. One day, Rohit decided to meet Sara and she went alone which was quite surprising for Rohit. Sara literally pleaded Rohit to take her in Simmba and Rohit decided upon Sara purely looking at her conviction. He didn’t even see the rushes of Kedarnath. Rohit also mentioned that Sara is in Simmba purely because of her hard work as ne never got a call from neither Saif nor Amrita to put in a word for Sara.”

Samar’s dramatic griha- pravesh at Jaya’s maayke in Main Maayke Chali Jaungi Tum Dekhte Rahiyo



Sony Entertainment Television’s Main Maayke Chali Jaungi Tum Dekhte Rahiyo is gearing up for a lot of drama. The show protagonist Namish Taneja who plays Samar will do a griha- pravesh at his wife Jaya’s (Srishti Jain) maayke. This is for a first time on Indian Television that a groom will enter his wive’s house with proper traditions and rituals.

In the current track, the viewers will see that Jaya has returned to her maayka (maternal house) after a major fight with Samar. Jaya’s mother Satya Devi (Neelu Waghela) asks for a divorce from the Surana family. Samar tries his level best to win back Jaya, but all his efforts goes in vain. To get her wife back, Samar comes up with an idea of doing a grand griha-pravesh at Jaya’s maayke and teach Satya Devi a lesson. The viewers will see a grand griha-pravesh of Samar with band and bajaa, which comes as a shock for the whole Sharma family.

Namish Taneja aka Samar, “The viewers should now be ready for a lot of twists and turns in the track. A groom doing griha-pravesh at the bride’s house is something that the viewers might have not seen till now on Indian television. Now since Samar wants Jaya in his life, he is not leaving any stone unturned to impress her and win her back with his unconditional love. I am sure everyone is surely going to love this track and the small tussle between the Jamai and the Saasu maa.”

Tune into Main Maayke Chali Jaungi Tum Dekhte Rahiyo from Monday to Friday at 8.30 only on Sony Entertainment Television!

Bharat Ratna Sachin Tendulkar salutes Balasaheb Thackeray, The Emperor of Hearts


While preparations for the release of Thackeray, the most-awaited film of 2019 are on in full swing, and the excitement gains momentum, not only among the makers, but also among the masses and the celebrities alike, ace Cricketer Bharat Ratna Sachin Tendulkar shares his thoughts on the towering personality, in a video byte, ahead of the Balasaheb Thackeray biopic, Thackeray release on 25th January, 2019. The trailer releases much ahead of its scheduled date due to the mass anticipation and adulation rising.

“When we used to practice Cricket at Shivaji Park, we would see the preparations of Balasaheb’s assembly and, also how excited people would be to hear his speeches. And also how excited people would be to hear his speeches!

Whenever I met him, and was leaving for a Cricket tournament, he would always tell me to glorify the country’s name and make India proud,” shares an emotional Tendulkar.

It was Balasaheb, who while writing for the Shiv Sena mouthpiece Saamana, urged the then-ruling Congress Party to confer the highest civilian honour upon the Master Blaster, “If you love Sachin so much, then why don't you give him the Bharat Ratna?” asked he.

Sachin Tendulkar had always shared a special bond with the Late Shiv Sena Supremo, both being passionate fans of Cricket, besides being the Pride of Maharashtra!

A fitting tribute indeed from one master to the master of a million hearts! 

Abhishek Kapoor - The Star Maker



After recognizing the immense star potential in director Farhan Akhtar , filmmaker Abhishek Kapoor convinced him to star in the mega blockbuster Rock On! that went on to win a National award .
Soon after Akhtar swept multiple awards for his performances, something that Kapoor was confident about when he recognized the actor in him.

Abhishek Kapoor's Kai Po Che that marked Sushant Singh Rajput's debut ,went on to become the most talked about film in 2013 not just for its relevant subject and treatment but also because a star was born with Sushant Singh Rajput. 4 years later , the two who share a truly commendable partnership teamed up for Kedarnath, which was also Sara Ali Khan's massive launch pad.

The young actress walked away with rave reviews for the film and is already one of the most sought after stars. All this despite being just a film old, speaking volumes for Kapoor's knack of recognizing, mentoring and nurturing talent.

Says a trade source, " Abhishek Kapoor is known to have a keen eye for talent. He launched names like Farhan Akhtar as an actor ( Rock On) , Sushant Singh Rajput ( Kai Po Che) , Rajkummar Rao ( Kai Po Che) and now Sara Ali Khan ( Kedarnath) , all of whom are bonafide stars. Kapoor recognizes talent when he sees it and grooms and nurtures it to its full potential. He is a fine mentor ,whether its conducting workshops , grooming them on their screen presence, right down to conversations and all else that goes into making a great actor".

When contacted said Abhishek Kapoor, “Casting newcomers is not a deliberate move but a natural process and that is how it should be.  I guess I’ve been successful at it because my intention has always been to make my film and tell the story. New talent from my films have always emerged as a byproduct of the films.. They have to be right for the character and give it 100%. If any story demands a fresh face i won’t hold back.. Besides, as a film maker it gives me the opportunity to contribute to the pool of talent in the industry.”

Suniel Shetty and Zaheer Khan Join Hands to Launch Ferit Cricket Bash (FCB)



Renowned Bollywood superstar and sports enthusiast Suniel Shetty, cricketing legend Zaheer Khan, and investors extraordinaire Jasmeet Bhatia and Mitesh Sharma, today announced the launch of Ferit Cricket Bash (FCB), India’s first nationwide cricket league for amateur cricketers. FCB will feature 16 teams representing various regions of the country. Registration is open to players who are 15+ years, and the best performers will be selected, subject to an intensive 22-city talent search. The league aims to discover the most talented and passionate amateur cricketers from across the country.

FCB is an exciting endeavour aimed at encouraging the nation’s cricket lovers to pursue their dreams of playing competitively by giving them a massive platform to showcase their talent. After two intense selection rounds involving several thousand aspiring cricketers across multiple cities in India, the final 224 players will be divided into 16 teams. These teams, which will be mentored by internationally renowned cricketing legends and leading coaches from across India, will then compete with each other in an exciting 15-over a side format. Each shortlisted player will receive a participation fee of INR 1 lakh along with exciting cash rewards for the winning teams. The top 14 performers of FCB will be given a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to represent the FCB All Stars Team and participate in a local club level tournament in Australia.

The launch ceremony was hosted by emcee Gaurav Kapoor and graced by some of the most iconic names in cricket such as Zaheer Khan, Muttiah Muralitharan, Chris Gayle, and Praveen Kumar. Industrialists Jasmeet Bhatia and Mitesh Sharma, co-founders and promoters of FCB also stated that a few more international cricketing icons would likely be signed on as mentors for the upcoming season of FCB.

Suniel Shetty, co-founder of Ferit Cricket Bash said, “Movies and cricket are two unifying factors in our country, and as a sports enthusiast, I am most excited to launch FCB in partnership with Zaheer, Jasmeet and Mitesh. There is no dearth of passion for cricket in India, and it is almost a religion for us. Even at my age, I look forward to the opportunity of playing a game of cricket regardless of whether it is on a film set or in the lane outside my house. Our endeavour with FCB is to bring young and old ‘ziddi’s’ together on a national scale, and let the cricketing fervour take over. Although FCB is for amateur cricketers, the joy and pride of representing your city or state will push you to go that extra mile, and that is the essence of what we are creating here. Cricket is a way of life for a majority of us, and the most passionate ones deserve the chance to know what it feels like to live the game.”

Zaheer Khan, Cricket legend and co-founder of FCB said, “I started my journey amongst hundreds of other cricket enthusiasts, and most of us had nothing, but our love for the game that kept us going. It was the opportunities I had while participating in local tournaments back home that later enabled me to represent my country. Therefore, I most definitely realise the value of an opportunity given to amateur players, especially those with humble beginnings. Many passionate cricketers we’ll encounter during our search may not aspire to become professional players, but at FCB, it won’t stop them from fulfilling their desire of becoming a part of a team, having their names on their jerseys, playing on beautiful grounds across India or having their friends and families rooting for them, while the nation watches. That is the USP of FCB, and I am very proud to be associated with Suniel Anna, Jasmeet and Mitesh. I look forward to encouraging and engaging with India’s most talented cricketers.”

Tavinderjit Singh Panesar, President of DSport Business, the official broadcasting partner of FCB added, "Cricket is India’s most cherished sport. The heart and dedication that the country’s millions of amateur players show - whether it is in the gullies of Mumbai, or the fields of Punjab - is truly incredible. FCB’s idea of supporting these amateur and talented cricket players in such a meaningful and exciting manner is genuinely brilliant, and we are thus elated to associate with stalwarts like Suniel, Zaheer, Jasmeet and Mitesh for this venture. We are certain that the passion these young men display on and off the field will resonate strongly with audiences across India.”

The Ferit Cricket Bash is going to be conducted in July/August 2019. However, registrations and the following selection process for Phase 1 will begin on 20th December 2018. If you have dreams of glory, and spirit of cricket in your blood, be sure to log on to https://www.feritcricketbash.com/ or give a missed call on +91-98710-63063.

Super Dancer, a format created by us, has had a successful run in its last two seasons. This format has not only been appreciated here in India but in the international markets as well and will soon be adapted globally. What sets Super Dancer apart from others is the celebration of passion towards dance and the encouragement the platform provides to the participants to excel at what they do best. The same has been extended in our programme’s campaign, celebrating the hard work and passion of a champion.

Super Dancer Chapter 3 promises to elevate the level of dance performances and entertainment. We have gone across the country to search for the right talent who will be the Dance ka Kal. We value our partnership with Sony Entertainment Television, and together it’s a great collaboration.” 

Shilpa Shetty Kundra, Super Judge 
Super Dancer is something that I look forward to and this season is very special. The talent is incredibly brilliant and it’s amazing to see kids realize their potential at such a young age. Benchmark being higher, it’s going to be difficult for the judges to keep up with these kids and I am looking forward to learning a lot from the contestants as well. I feel that Super Dancer is not just a dance platform, but it’s the future of Dance – Dance Ka Kal! 

Anurag Basu, Super Judge
With every passing season, the kids get better with their performances, never ceasing to surprise us. When we started with the first season of Super Dancer, the experience of judging such talented kids was overwhelming. Over the years, the contestants have become more technically sound and have added a plethora of facets to their dancing skills. As I gear up to judge Super Dancer Chapter 3, I feel proud to be a part of a platform that celebrates such talent and encourages them to reach for the stars.

Geeta Kapur, Super Judge 
Super Dancer is a unique platform which showcases the passion and commitment of young kids. Over the years, I have seen this passion multiplying and I am excited to see what this season has in store for us. The auditions have seen many participants and now it’s up to us to identify those 12 who will go on to compete this season.

Shahrukh Khan is Ssharad Malhotra’s role model



Every actor wishes to be like another Bollywood superstar and work towards it. Speaking of Musakaan’s lead actor Ssharad Malhotra thought he was the next Shahrukh Khan after doing this first film ‘Ek Tera Sath’. The actor is a diehard Shahrukh khan fan and takes SRK as his role model.

Ssharad Malhotra has never failed to miss a movie of Shahrukh and seeks inspiration from him. So much so that he even tries to act like him on screen. Ssharad Malhotra says, “Shahrukh’s smile is contagious and there is a lot to learn from what he portrays on screen. His energy is very inspiring and he is truly my role model.”

He adds a memorable back story saying, "Back in school days in the year 1995, after watching DDLJ for the 100th time, I travelled to Mumbai in my summer vacations and stood outside Mannat to meet him. Unfortunately, that never happened, but 10 years after that, while shooting for my first show, I bumped into him at an event and all I remember is that for me, that moment just froze. 2nd November is a day I love to celebrate and my fans know that too."

Its marathon time for Saiyami Kher again



Saiyami Kher who made a stellar debut with Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra's Mirzya is a sportswoman by heart.

The talented actress who has been hugely appreciated for her performance in her latest release, Mauli, had successfully completed a full marathon two years ago and she is prepping up again putting her running shoes on.

She informs, "Sport has been my passion ever since I was a kid. I took to running 3 years ago. Ran the full marathon (42 kms) 2 years ago and have done a whole lot of half’s. Best thing about running is you just need to put on your shoes and run. So even if I’m shooting or working late I try getting a 30 min run in my day.

"Just a month away from race day I take care of what I eat for this month and start tapering my runs closer to the race. I’m happy seeing the running culture grow in India and urge more and more people to take it up," she adds.
