Jaya Prada says, “Our society grooms girls, but fails to produce good husbands”



Jaya Prada’s television debut show Perfect Pati on &TV posed some hard-hitting questions to its viewers when it started. Can an ideal son also be an ideal husband? What happens when a newly married woman realises her husband is not the man she expected him to be? It interestingly answered these questions through its strong narrative over the months. Not just did it give a refreshing perspective to the quintessential saas-bahu equation, but also changed perceptions of how a woman should deal with a troubled marriage and partner. 

The show in a dramatic turn of events, will see Rajyashree Rathod played by Jaya Prada, killing her own son Pushkar (Ayush Anand) in a bid to do the right thing and serve justice to her daughter-in-law Vidhita (Sana Amin Sheikh).  Rajyashree had long known that her son and daughter-in-law had trouble in their marriage. But it has now come to light that her son under his psychotic behaviour had tried to kill Vidhita, the woman he claimed to love. The shocking climax where Rajyashree shoots her own son with a gun is sure to cause ripples, but also sends a strong message to the society at large and mothers in particular on the topic of raising their sons well. 


Talking about this unconventional concept and the bold move the writers have taken with the story, Jaya Prada said, “I am glad that I made my television debut with Perfect Pati, a show that portrayed a mother and her role as a mother-in-law in such strong positive light. It is imperative that mothers should understand their child’s behaviour and not blindly support the wrongdoings or faults in their sons. Indian society has spent centuries grooming girls to be future good wives (sanskari bahus), yet often failing to produce good husbands who deserve them. Girls while growing up are being conditioned to feel that they have to accept their husbands any way,  even at times cater to their extreme behaviour in their marriages. It is imperative for mothers to imbibe values in their sons right from their childhood to respect a woman and her choices. I am happy and proud that &TV has taken such a strong stance and given this message through my show.” 

Further adding on the highpoint, she said, “Rajyashree loved her son, but she refused to stand-up for his bizarre behaviour and injustice against Vidhita. This a huge turning point as she chooses right over wrong and takes a drastic step though viewers will see the reasoning behind this move.” 

This is surely one climax that will be worth watching!

Hiten Tejwani breaks the ‘good boy image’ with &TV’s Daayan



From beginning his career with a chocolate boy role to becoming a huge household name thereafter, seasoned television actor Hiten Tejwani is a name that grew to fame with his incredible work in the daily soaps. Much like his nature and personality, the actor’s sweet and adored roles have always managed to charm the audience and been at the receiving end of much deserved adulation. Attempting to break the ‘good boy’ bubble around him, the actor is all set to return to a Balaji Telefilms show after a long gap with a new surprise for the viewers. 

Returning to his second home with a new role, Hiten Tejwani will be seen essaying a long desired negative character in &TV’s show, Daayan. Following the track, Jhanvi Morya (Tinaa Dattaa) switched personalities with her popular look alike actress Kundani Roy to defeat all fatal attempts of the Daayan. Little did she know that this action would result in consequences that would set to bring an additional turmoil in her life. Leading to a spark of rigidity in Jhanvi’s married life will be Kundani Roy’s husband, Viraj (Hiten Tejwani) who in an attempt to reconnect with his wife claims Jhanvi to be his. While Akarsh (Mohit Malhotra) fights to keep his love, Jhanvi will be seen facing an all new battle between keeping her secrets and maintaining the sanity in her marriage. 


Speaking about his desire to play distinct roles on television, actor Hiten Tejwani said, “As an actor, I have always wished to add variety to my craft and essay different roles that would probably set me apart from my earlier ones. My journey over television has mostly been about playing the typical ‘good boy’ and positive roles so much so that I was typecast to it. There was a ‘good boy image’ formed around me which I was tired of and felt that it needed to break.  I felt I needed to be more vocal about the fact that I am open to playing a negative character, just so that I could innovate with myself and add variety to my work So when Viraj’s role from Daayan was offered to me, I had no two thoughts about taking it up.” 

Adding further about his character, Hiten said, “While I have played a character earlier that was close to having grey shades, my current character is more negative in appearance and in personality. The efforts to pull this one is surely more and as challenging as it sounds, it is a completely new experience for me and one that I have been waiting for patiently. If viewers relate to Jhanvi and Akarsh’s life, they are surely going to love the new twist that my character is set to bring in. I am excited to play Viraj in Daayan and more enthusiastic to see how the viewers respond to this side of mine.” 

Will Jhanvi be able to fight another battle yet again to protect her love and her marriage or will she succumb to the pressures of her dark secrets and the evils of the Daayan? 

To know more, keep watching Daayan, every Saturday and Sunday at 9:00pm only on &TV

Sneha Wagh, gets a new friend on the set of Chandragupta Maurya


 

Chandragupta Maurya, the historical show on Sony Entertainment Television, brings forth some interesting dramatic content based on a true story of the life of the Mauryan King. The show that keeps its audience glued to the screens with new twists and turns on a daily basis hosts quite a few talented actors from the industry. Sneha Wagh who essays the character of Moora – Chandragupta’s mother, on the show, recently shared a really beautiful picture with a cute puppy named Rawn, that happens to be her friend’s pet. And the way she went crazy on seeing the puppy took everyone by surprise on seeing an all together new version of her.

 Sneha, who plays the role of Moora, Chandragupta’s mother and the former queen of Piplivan, seemed really happy with her new friend on the set. Dogs are a weakness of most of the girls, but it definitely means something if a dog can actually make you feel alive. She mentions, “I was very fond of pets during my childhood and finally got a dog to my place one day. After three days, my mom asked me to return him back. I was really reluctant and cried for an entire week to get that dog back. Unfortunately, my mom did not allow me to get a pet at home. I made up my mind to keep myself away from pets. But when I saw Rawn, everybody saw a different version of me. I couldn’t just control myself playing with that cute little pup and there I realised that it is very difficult to keep yourself away from the charm of pets. It seems as if I have got a new friend on the sets with whom can I just play around everywhere.”

Maggi- Party on the sets of Ladies Special



Ladies Special, the show with gobs of speciality in its three super caring, independent women - Bindu(Bijal), Prarthana(Chhavvi) and Meghna(Girija), whose lives revolve around their families and friends presents the most relatable show on Sony Entertainment Television.

The women on the sets have a very hectic schedule throughout and it is very less that the three leads shoot together. So, the women have made it a point to make the most of it when three of them shoot together. This time, they celebrated the togetherness with a maggi-party on the sets. Bijal Joshi who essays Bindu, is a big foodie and more than that loves to cook food. She is famous for making different types of Maggis and was forced to make Maggi for everyone on the set to celebrate womenhood and togetherness of three leads.

Bijal on this note says “When I was a kid, we had a small maggi shop near my house which had around 15 different types of maggi in its menu. My favorite out of them was Chilly garlic Maggi and Manchurian maggi. The owner was a sweet person and had real magic in his hands. I always wanted to learn to make all those kinds of maggis and thereby used to sit there for hours to observe and learn from him and used memorise the recipe and ingredients. When I told this to my co-actors, they all asked me to treat them with maggi and I happily obliged. It was pure bliss as there is nothing better than having a hot and sizzling plate of maggi while spending some gala time with your favourite people.”

The ladies that seem really serious on-screen are actually quite fun off-screen. Their camaraderie at the sets especially when they shoot together cannot be matched.

Says Aleena Khan, “religious clergymen, some not even educated, exploit loopholes.” The maker has also written to the PM of India, urging him to ban all sorts of Talaaq because “I’ve seen women suffer and it is always sad and a shattering sight to watch.”

World media also acknowledges the maker’s vision and goal.

Brie Larson, who has won an Oscar, followed the epic strength training routine in preparation for the role. She even did actual flight training which is was quite intense and despite falling sick, Brie continued to train! As Captain Marvel: THE MOST POWERFUL SUPERHERO, the Oscar winning actress herself pushed an almost 2500 KG Jeep to get into insane shape for the role!

Well our Indian actresses are very powerful and are respected throughout the country.. they share a huge fan following and most of them are as fit as the heroes, some of them even fitter and kick ass!

As we are yet to see to a female superhero film in India, so we came up with a list of top powerful and iconic Indian actresses who we think can do justice to a desi Captain Marvel, if it was to be made in India! 

Taapsee Pannu


Known for her strong headed roles in Pink, Naam Shabana and Mulk, Taapsee Pannu would be the one of the best options to cast as Captain Marvel. Taapsee's ferocious attitude and well toned body structure makes her the perfect fir to be a superhero.

Sonakshi Sinha
 
Sonakshi Sinha has aced the roles in movies like Dabbang and Akira where she showed off some really cool tricks while she fought the corrupt police officers. She has also been seen in Force 2. Sonakshi would fit into the role of Brie Larson and kick some more butt!

Deepika Padukone


After seeing her action packed sequences in XXX: Return of Xander cage, Deepika is definitely a strong candidate in the running of playing the role of desi Carol Danvers. She made a Hollywood debut with that film and who knows maybe that might be a plus point for her.

Radhika Apte
 
Radhika Apte has been a sensation in 2018 where she was literally everywhere. She was appreciated for all her work and has really fine acting skills in the Hindi industry as well as down South. Having a huge fan following just like Brie makes Radhika a great contender for the role of Captain Marvel.

Alia Bhatt


After playing the role of a spy in Raazi, Alia would make for an unconventional superhero in the industry. She has also aced each and every roled that she has played making her once of the most versatile actors the industry has and this guarantees her as one of the top contenders for a female superhero film.

Rakul Preet Singh


Rakul Preet is a notable south actress who is known for her vast range of movie in the Tamil and Telugu industry and has done some movies in the Hindi and Kannada film industry as well. Famous as a versatile actress, Rakul Preet would fit in perfectly in the race to Brie Larson.

Anushka Shetty


Anushka Shetty aka Sweety Shetty is famous for her role in the Baahubali series and has done a number of movies in the Telugu film industry. After her fierce role of portraying Yuvarani Devasena, there is a high possibility of Anushka being a part of the Marvel cinematic Universe as Brie Larson.

Ekta Kapoor Talks About Complex Relationships



TV czarina Ekta Kapoor, who recently became a mother to a baby boy spoke about complex relationships to Anupama Chopra, a prominent Indian author and journalist. Anupama spent a day with Ekta at her bungalow and office, where they chatted about her daily routine, how she manages her professional and personal life and the changes that she has brought about after becoming a mother. She also discovered what Ekta’s superpower is!

They were also accompanied by the veteran actor Ronit Roy and the effervescent Mona Singh who is creating quite a stir with ALTBalaji's current successful running series Kehne Ko Humsafar Hain 2. While the first season caught the pulse of its viewers, the second season gives a riveting take on love and life beyond. Ekta was seen speaking about how millions of women have resonated with the characters and have downloaded the app to watch the series. Talking about the inspiration of developing this drama, Ekta shared that loving an emancipated woman is easy but marrying one is entirely different and this what the show captures. This season will be about how the heart has got what it wanted but will it really be happy?  The series intricately weaves the complexities of mature relationships. 

Talking about her experience, Anupama Chopra took to her social media where she posted a picture writing “@ektaravikapoorcurrently has 8 soaps on television, 4 films in production, 30 shows on the @altbalajiApp & 170 shows in development!!
