…‘12/24 Karol Bagh’, ‘An Address Not Too Far From Our Own Lives’…
Hindustan badal raha hain aur ‘Hindustan ka no.1 Network’ leke aaya hain aapke saamne iss badalav se uthnewaale kaii sawaal jo hum aam zindagi mein kafi hadtak sunte aaye hain, jaise… –‘Shaadi ya career?’ ‘Apne se chote umar ke ladke se pyar?’ ‘Pitaji ka business ya naukari?’…
…A lot of similar questions are beautifully raised in this story of a family which though sometimes doesn’t understand each others’ needs and dreams, believes in staying together with perfect love and compassion. ‘12/24 Karol Bagh’ will narrate the lives of four siblings who are facing different kinds of dilemmas in their day-to day lives as they struggle to survive, find love and then to keep relationships together. The show debuts on Zee TV on August 31st, Monday – Thursday at 10 p.m.
The show will see the sights of hubbub lanes and by-lanes of Karol Bagh and Lajpat Nagar, the lip-smacking food corners in Bengali market, the vastness of Pragati Maidan, picturesque India Gate and Parliament House, Delhi University and many such frames that essentially collaborate the essence of Delhi and also form an important part of any middle-class family that resides in the Capital.
‘12/ 24 Karol Bagh’ is the first ever show on Indian Television to be shot completely in Delhi. So far, channels have only portrayed families residing in different parts of the country while the shows are pre-dominantly shot in Mumbai. To maintain the authentic flavour of the Capital, Zee TV decided to station the entire production unit in Delhi. Besides maintaining the regional feel, the motive for Zee TV to bring its newest show to the Capital is to expand the boundaries of the Indian television industry outside Mumbai.
After having delivered great concepts like ‘Agle Janam Mohe Bitiyan Hi Kijo’, ‘Aap Ki Antara’ and ‘Dance India Dance’, ‘12/24 Karol Bagh’ is another fresh offering from Zee TV’s Creative team. The show is being produced by ‘Sunshine Productions’.
Akash Chawla, Marketing Head, Zee TV said, “We realize that India is changing but there are certain topics that are still not discussed openly though they are thoughts that we internally assimilate. We wanted to depict a simple life of a family that resides in Delhi and yet make their story special, encompassing different nuances of their day-to-day existence. We would also want to give our audiences a voice while we probe them with different questions and hence the campaign for this show is truly interactive in nature. We believe in getting our viewers completely involved in our shows and hence had proposed viewers’ participation at the recently held wedding sequence in ‘Pavitra Rishta’ which also had met with a great success.”
Mr. Chawla, further added, “Having shot in Delhi, which is also the hometown of most of the actors and technicians on the show, gives ‘12/24 Karol Bagh’, an ultimate edge with the language and the background portrayed in an authentic manner. Above all, this endeavor is to make Delhi participate in the mainstream television industry. Through its various shows, Zee TV has brought in flavour of the nation’s cultural diversity by narrating life stories of real people across the country. For instance, while ‘Pavitra Rishta’ is the story of a typical middle-class Maharashtrian family in Mumbai, ‘Agle Janam Mohe Bitiya Hi Kijo’, represents an extremely poor household residing in a village of Bihar. Our attempt is to create content that families can view and relish together.”

Aap Ki Antara is a show that is somewhat unusual. How often have you seen a show about something serious, and an issue that is not known to a large number of people. Hence, the effort to introduce the concept of what an autisitic child is, what is the behavior, how they are not crazy, what are the efforts that are needed to bring up such a child. The serial has tried to show these challenges, but they are introducing many twists that a normal serial does (maybe to increase the drama, but that tend to take away from the serious nature of the serial.
Antara is the daughter of Aditya, a loan manager of a bank. He is married to Vidya, and they have a son as well. Things are fine, and then they discover that Aditya had been unfaithful, and there is a daughter called Antara from the relationship. The woman with whom Aditya had been unfaithful has now died, and Aditya has to take care of Antara, who is autistic. They are slowly starting to learn what being autistic means, and Aditya is facing a lot of problems in trying to do good for Antara (with Vidya being somewhat cut off from him, but slowly starting to accept Antara as her daughter as well). Antara in the meantime is seen as crazy by those who do not know, including other mothers (and the serial unnecessarily shows some of the mothers as being very bitchy). Antara shows off some special skills in terms of artistic prowess.
Currently, Aditya is getting stuck in several problems. He was trying to earn some money on the side, but that is not working out. Further, most critically, Antara is now lost, and Aditya is going mad looking for her. Will he be able to find her, or will the serial go in for a time leap ?

More about autistic children:
Autism is a brain development disorder characterized by impaired social interaction and communication, and by restricted and repetitive behavior. These signs all begin before a child is three years old. Autism involves many parts of the brain; how this occurs is not well understood. Although early behavioral or cognitive intervention can help children gain self-care, social, and communication skills, there is no known cure. Overt symptoms gradually begin after the age of six months, become established by age two or three years, and tend to continue through adulthood, although often in more muted form. People with autism have social impairments and often lack the intuition about others that many people take for granted. Autistic infants show less attention to social stimuli, smile and look at others less often, and respond less to their own name. Autistic toddlers differ more strikingly from social norms; for example, they have less eye contact and turn taking, and are more likely to communicate by manipulating another person's hand.
Autistic individuals display many forms of repetitive or restricted behavior such as:
- Stereotypy is repetitive movement, such as hand flapping, making sounds, head rolling, or body rocking.
- Compulsive behavior is intended and appears to follow rules, such as arranging objects in a stacks or lines.
- Sameness is resistance to change; for example, insisting that the furniture not be moved or refusing to be interrupted.
- Ritualistic behavior involves an unvarying pattern of daily activities, such as an unchanging menu or a dressing ritual. This is closely associated with sameness and an independent validation has suggested combining the two factors.
- Restricted behavior is limited in focus, interest, or activity, such as preoccupation with a single television program, toy, or game.
- Self-injury includes movements that injure or can injure the person, such as eye poking, skin picking, hand biting, and head banging. A 2007 study reported that self-injury at some point affected about 30% of children.

The serial Jai Shri Krishna on Colors moved away from the child like cute stage some months ago, and started showing the older, teenager age Krishna. In this age, he started showing more of his powers and god behavior, getting rid of the snake Kaaliya from the river (the snake was poisoning the water of the river); it was also becoming clear that his uncle (the ruler of Mathura, Kans) was determined to destroy him by any means. However, none of these plans were successful.
Finally, the inevitable happened. Kans calls Krishna to Mathura, identifying him as his nephew, something that Yashoda would not have easily accepted; however, it was the destiny of Lord Krishna to finally meet Kans, and so it happened. Krishna, accompanied by his brother Balram, finally went to Mathura, and withstood all attempts by Kans to destroy him. Eventually, Krishna over-powered Kans in a single battle, and along with Balram, takes over the running of Mathura.

Yeh Rishta Kya Kahlata Hain on Star Plus must have seen the longest wedding ever, much longer than even the Rajshri's would have made it. The days before the wedding, the events during the wedding, and the post-wedding festivities have lasted for several weeks of serial time (I could be sure of missing any particular day and not have missed more than 1-2 functions). They should record some of those parts, and turn them into a cultural thing to show tourists, the wedding functions practices by one section of the population.
Anyhow, for most of the past few weeks, the whole thing was about how Naitik had discovered that he was not the first person that Akshara had seen, and had put on a twisted face ever since then. The fact that he wanted to be the first one to whom she had said (and then he discovered that it was his cousin, one with whom he keeps on fighting, which made it even worse). It got so bad that people in the wedding could not help noticing that he was not so happy as you would expect somebody to be who has just got married. Even his wedding photos showed him as grumpy, something his cousins kept on pointing out.
Eventually, it lead to Akshara crying in front of him on their wedding night, the time when they are supposed to make the first steps in building their relationship. It also meant that Rituraj, his cousin, wanted to quickly leave since he knew that this entire issue was all about his earlier proposal with Akshara. In the end, however, things turn out fine and Naitik resolves his problems. He also helps Akshara resolve her problem with making the traditional sweet on the day after marriage, since the kheer she makes is too sweet, and they get kheer from outside to save the issue.

Balika Vadhu on Colors has 2 distinct stories going on inside it. One is the story of Shyaam Shyaam and Sugna, the other is the story of what was there in Kalyani's (Dadi-sa's) past. There was a story where Jagdish had got into some bad company, skipping school and making some new bad friends who got him into betting, gambling (cards) and stealing money in some way or the other to meet these needs. However, when Bhairon got to know, he put an end to this story altogether with a thorough chewing out of Jagdish (and even asking Kalyani not to interfere).
The next story ongoing is the story of Sugna and Shyaam. Shyaam finally married Sugna after his parents backed out (when they found that Sugna was already pregnant, even though she had not had her 'Gauna' as yet). In spite of the fierce opposition of his parents, Shyaam went ahead. Right now, he is estranged from his parents who cannot believe that their son is taking somebody else's side rather than listening to his parents. And of course, there is no question of Sugna going to live in Shyaam's house since his parents would not accept her. Sugna however is too much still in love with Pratap, and does not accept that Shyaam is now her husband. She even defies Dadi who wants Sugna to now respect and obey her husband. But Shyaam is still willing to defend Sugna for her independence, and does not want anybody to reproach her. Will Shyaam remain true ? There are persistent rumors that Shyaam will eventually turn into a negative character.
The second main story is about Kalyani's past. Anandi's father, Khazan Singh, had to give his farmland to a money-lender for getting the money for Sugna's marriage gift, and now he is in problem since his farm is being sold off and he does not have the money. The farm is being sold to a rich man in another village who is distantly related to Kalyani, but when this problem is related to Kalyani, she refuses to get involved and instead scolds Anandi when Anandi tries to raise this problem to Dadi. It is slowly being shown that at some time in the past, after Kalyani lost her husband, she had slapped this man, and there is something hidden. One is sure that soon, these hidden secrets will get revealed, especially since Jagdish and Anandi met that man to get the land back.

Even after Jyoti is now married (happily) to Pankaj, there will always be problems in her life, apparently. So, what happens is that though Jyoti had decided to get married to Pankaj, she had not fully accepted him initially, but now seems to have done. However, she is still hiding things from him, in the sense that she has never told him about Sushma, which seems a bit strange thing to do. No matter what the relation with your sister would be like, why would you not tell your husband about this ? No wonder the husband is likely to get angry with her.
In the meantime, there are 2 more stories that are getting played out. One is regarding Jyoti's sister Sudha. Sudha has something strange, a split personality where one half of her is care-free, while the other half is the docile, strangely scared girl. Jyoti, and other people near her have seen both, but are not easily able to connect both these separate personalities; in fact, the person who has fallen in love with her is unable to fully comprehend as to what is happening with the girl he loves.
Sushma is in an even worse condition. Her marriage to Brij now seems to be a mistake, since Brij wants her to go to any extent to make money, forcing her to dance in front of people who ogle at her body and want to have fun with her; in one case, she is forced to give into a stranger. Brij, as a demonstration of his bad nature, now pretends that he has a severe illness, for which Sushma needs to get money from anywhere. She continues to work at dance places and parties, making money while wearing short clothes.

Zee TV stars will celebrate this Janmashtami with lots of devotion, fun and happiness as they get together in a two hour special episode of Choti Bahu. The event that saw excellent performances of Dev-Radhika (Choti Bhau), Archana-Manav (Pavitra Rishta), Laali- Abhishek (Agle Janam Mohe Bitiya Hi Kijo), Shree- Hari (Shree) and Jhanvi-Nikhil (Ghar Ki Lakshmi, Betiyann) dancing on the all time favorite Radha-Krishna melodies and lively Dahi Haandi songs, also marked a remarkable performance of the legendary Jagjit Singh in form of a special guest. Joining the artists are the Hero Honda SaReGaMaPa L’il Champ wonders Shreyasi, Hemant and Yatharth.
The show – ‘Janme Kanhaiya Sabko Badhaiya’ will be telecast on Janmashtami on Friday, August 14 at 7.30 p.m.
Ratan Rajpoot Faints While Dancing to Kanha’s Tunes
Due to her constant health issues, Ratan has been taking extra care of herself during the shooting hours. Even the production house has been taking needful measures to take care of Ratan’s diet and they have also made a doctor available on the set so that Ratan could be immediately attended to in case of emergencies. However due to frequent shuttling between her show’s shooting and rehearsing for Janmashtami special even of Choti Bhau, Ratan’s health deteriorated recently. Rata in an excellent dancer and she did beautifully during her rehearsals. On the final day of the shoot however, in middle of her performance, Ratan fainted and fell on the ground. Despite repeated efforts, she couldn’t be brought back to consciousness, setting panic amongst the unit members. She was taken to the doctors and the shooting was stalled. The production house had to shoot other acts till Ratan resumed shoot the next day.
To bring in the authentic Vridunvan look to the premises, a cow and a calf were brought on the sets of Choti Bahu for its Janmashatmi special. While it gave the desired feel and look for the shoot, the producers were left with lot of trouble during the shooting and the cow kept hitting the dancers, everytime they moved around the area were the calf was tied. This made their dance moves very difficult. To add in to the distress both the cow and calf kept mooing continuously. They also dirtied the place. The act that could have been shot in 20 minutes took almost two hours to shoot.
‘The best way to overcome your fear is to face it’ they say… Sushant Singh, Manav of Zee TV’s Pavitra Rishta came face to face with his fear while shooting of the Choti Bahu Janmashtami special. Sushant is scared of heights and the Dahi-Haandi act he performed on needed him to celebrate the festival in the Mharstrain 3way where they form a human pyramid and the guy on the top breaks a matki tied on a height above. Suhsnat who is an excellent dancer, freaked when he got to know that he has to climb on such height and initially requested the production house to lower the matki’s height. While the production house tried accommodating his request the overall look of the frame didn’t come up to their expectations. Hence they suggested using a body double. Sushant then decided to do the stunt and though the act was further difficult as it had to be performed in artificial rains, Sushant still managed to complete the act gracefully. Kudos to you Guy!

MTV Roadies is a long running show on the Indian music channel MTV. The show is a reality contest that believes in subjecting the contestants to many contests and tests, getting them to fight each other and compete strongly with one another. It is exceedingly popular, and has a dedicated audience who try to view each episode when the show is running. The show has had 6 seasons so far, and the interesting thing was the change in presenters. The first show had the presenter being Cyrus Sahukar, but from the second season, the winner of the first show, Rannvijay Singh Singha, has hosted the show from the second season onwards.
The first 4 seasons were held in India, with the 5th season going abroad, being held in India, Thailand, Malaysia, and the 6th season was held Down Under, in Australia and India. The show is created by Raghu Ram, and they also do the interviews to select the participants on the show, with Raghu and his twin, Rajiv Laxman, doing the interviewing. They have been known to reduce cocky contestants to being nervous, asking people all sorts of questions, humiliating them, and so on.
The people participating on the show are provided with bikes, and asked to go onto a known route. In between, they are asked to perform on many challengers, some of which can seem very difficult, or even yucky. For example, I saw one round where the male contestants where strapped to ropes in an upright position, and then a stick came and whacked their balls. In other tests, contestants had to eat all sorts of horrid stuff, and so on. At the end of each episode, one contestant is voted out.
Winners till Date:
Season 1 : Rannvijay Singh from Delhi
Season 2 : Ayushmann Khurana from Chandigarh
Season 3 : Parul Shahi from Delhi
Season 4 : Anthony Yeh from Kolkata
Season 5 : Ashutosh Kaushik from Saharanpur (also the Big Boss winner after this)
Season 6 : Nauman Sait from Bangalore

“Ratan doesn’t know how to switch off!!!” – Rupa Ganguly
According to senior artists on the sets, Ratan Rajpot though a fine actor, cannot really handle pressures of her character of Laali due to her young age. Since Ratan’s character involves a lot of suffering and depression, she stays with the same mood even after the camera goes off coz of which she is found cranky and cribbing most of the times. Sometimes she doesn’t even interact with the co-actors and locks herself in the makeup room. In her depression, she misses her family and starts crying. While a lot of times, co-stars act supportive towards her, sometimes they find her mood-swings unbearable.
Ratan says, “Though it’s only in reel life, it’s very difficult to let people trample all over you. I am treated very badly in show as Loha Singh uses foul language while talking to me and the women mistreat me as I belong to lower caste. I start imagining an actual life of this kind and the sufferings that poor people go through and that the reason I am not my chirpy-self on the sets.”
Ratan Regrets Missing Out on Personal Life…
Unlike most of our stars who enjoy the attention and glamour that the showbiz offers, Ratan Rajput, Laali, of Zee TV’s, Agle Janam Mohe Bitiyan Hi Kijo, says that she regrets missing out on her personal life. According to Ratan, “Though the industry has given me lot of fame and good amount of savings, I sometimes crave for simple things in life. I am in the industry because I love acting and not only for the materialistic things that it offers. I wish I could make weekend plans with my freinds or catch a movie or a walk on the beach whenever I feel like. What I miss the most is the roadside chaat. She also admits that due to ungodly hours of the shoot, it becomes difficult for her to connect to her family members and talk to them on a regular basis.”

Looks like the competition in Iss Jungle Se Mujhe Bachao just got tougher. Other reality shows such as Big Boss do add people from time to time as wild card entries, but over time the number of people in the show does reduce.

Now, all of a sudden, 3 new people have joined the show, all of them wearing red shirts. These are Jay Bhanushali (TV actor), Komal Chautala (Chak De), and Mike Singh (singer). Now the show has been set with these 2 teams opposite each other, and they have Aman and Chetan on their side versus the others. Now the teams will contest against each other, cook separately, and so on. For Chetan and Aman, they will suddenly have to contest against people who were all part of the same team earlier.
So, the day of reckoning finally arrived; no more will we see more episodes of Rakhi Ka Swayamwar, and no more will we see assorted handsome guys proclaiming that they are truly in love with Rakhi and admire her.
On a long episode, atleast 2 hours, Rakhi finally made her choice, and it is the NRI from Ontario, Canada - Elesh. The show had the 3 finalists coming in full spendour (with almost groom dressing), and then had a whole host of TV celebrities coming on who all spoke to the camera. Then we had much small talk with the finalists, and then Rakhi arrived. She looked okay, but I have to say that her dressing was not like most brides I have seen, she showed far more skin that they do in normal Hindu weddings.
Rakhi spent a lot of time debating, doing a prayer on stage along with some of her friends, and then finally picked Elesh by putting the flowers around his neck. However, as expected, even though they said they could do the actual marriage festivities right now, they wanted to spend time to know each other, which means that there remains a chance that the marriage will not happen later.
The last episode (today's show) was live.

Now the twist in the story in Pavitra Rishta is becoming clear. The show however is not original, since it is based on a Tamil show called 'Thirumathi Selvam', which Ekta Kapoor bought the rights for.
The show is about the strange case of a marriage where circumstances change just after the marriage has happened, but the girl has not yet left with her husband. This is the story of Archana and Manav. Maanav owns a garage, while Archana's mother, Sulochana wants to get a good educated well-off boy for Archana, something that has been difficult in the past because Archana by herself does not have very good credentials. She is a very good person, but is not very well educated; at one point she almost gets married off to a rich educated and good buy, but this breaks off when Manujsha (Archana's sister-in-law) and her brother plot against Archana and create doubts in the mind of the boy and his family. This makes Sulochana mad and she vows to get a good boy for her daughter.
Maanav makes an entry in their life by saving Archana and her father, and they look at Maanav as a prospective son-in-law, thinking him to be a well earning mechanical engineer. Maanav is not comfortable that they do not know the truth about him, and tells Archana's father about the truth, and gets the go-ahead to proceed with the marriage. Sulochana does not know about this, and she only gets to know at the end of the marriage about this truth; she is shocked to the core and berates everybody for this. She refuses to acknowledge the marriage and Archana comes home with her.
