Snakes and Ladders on Star Voice of India

Saritha enjoys Rani Mukherjee on her favorite show but is disappointed by the copious miming.

When Kuch Kuch Hota Hai released almost a decade ago, I went to see it for my favorite actress Kajol, and though I liked her acting, I left the theater wondering who the other girl was - the one who overshadowed the lead pair in a special appearance.

Later under a series of B-grade projects, she slipped into oblivion only to emerge later as a lead actress making her way into the privileged Chopra-Johar camps.

Last week’s VoI saw Miss Congeniality Rani Mukherjee spread the love, encourage contestants, sing with them (I’ll pretend she never did that), teach the judges how to maro a thumka, gift the contestants ‘Maa Saraswati ki murti’ and finally postpone the elimination to Saturday.

She came across as genuine and remained elegant while dissecting performances. The set, contestant’s costumes, judges jumping on and off stage – I was not sure if it was a competition or party - but I ain’t complaining.

If the singing had taken a back seat amidst all this hungama, it would have bothered me, but it was at its best. The extended duet round was entertaining with some very coordinated singing, and excellent choice of songs.

Changing costumes to go with the theme of the song was an added bonus – darji Dheeraj gets a pat on his shoulder for making everyone look good, especially the girls who looked smashing. And they all evolved as performers.

Toshi, Irfan and Harshit secured their places for few more weeks. Abhilasha and Abhaas - despite being the most surila of the lot - lacked the emotion to get a song right. Ishmeet with a melodious voice could turn out to be the dark horse of the competition and Priyani continues with her hit and miss formula. Still she teamed up with Abhilasha to score an ace with ‘Chalka’ from ‘Saathiya’.

The not so cool dude Shiney Ahuja turned up on Saturday to play a contrived (yawn) ‘Bhool Bhulaiya’ game with the judges asking them KG questions in KBC ishtyle. Judges decided to sing, rather mime, duets with the contestants and got the best out of them. The contestants, who by now have mastered the art of performing on the stage as per the channel/producers' demand, put in extra effort to lip sync well.

But Jatin forgot to mime much to his partner Abhaas’ embarrassment. Aadesh had his dancing shoes on from Jhalak Dikhhla Ja was more eager to jump around than pretend to sing and Abhijeet and Alka having done this before were probably thinking if they should charge the producer for this service. Shaan and Ishmeet’s rendition of ‘Jab se tere naina’ sounded beautiful making me like this song from ‘Saawariya’.

Miming for the Grand Finale has been the norm for many shows but VoI's miming rehearsal took place with six weeks still to go for the last round. This gave me the uncomfortable feeling that there are more snakes than ladders on this board

Star TV sure must raking in huge profits because they've extended this production company’s stay on prime time with VoI Little Champs scheduled to air after the current show comes to end.

All I want to sing now is “aur iss show mein kya rakha hai, mera hi sardard likha rakha hai”

Boy what was wrong with Shiny Ahuja (other than his name)? That man had two expressions on his face - and one of them was a smiling variation of the other.

Saritha, excellent post as usual! Like Alka Yagnik would say "Music Reality Show ka jhanda ab tumhare haath mein hai!"

Musing said...

If there is one show which has lost its plot, its this one.

I say its high time for them to get Himesh Reshamiya..the bukhar show ke marz ki dawa.

His Himeshness will get the TRP's of this show flying in no time. Shout down Abhijeet, flirt with Alka outrageously...ignore Jatin and start a love triangle :)

I say bring His Himeshness on and phokko some life in this show..

Anyone ?

Sidekick said...

..... no pressure at all, saritha as the sole flag bearer! u did a stand-up job as usual. aspi, captions is baar bhi nishaane peh - waah! not sure how u got fm that BB movie still to silk smitha, but it is a hoot :)

Agree with Anon that VOI is pretty much a lost cause but any more HR and i'll OD. If he's out of SRGMP, then perhaps VOI next time will be his grand revenge to show Zee how TRPs are won!

Rani M pretty much saved the show on friday. she came determined to spread sweetness and light and she did with a vengeance. It was the first time I've seen the mean and curmudgeonly judges transformed into fun people. If in turn they ended up fawning all over Rani, it seemed a small price to pay. In contrast, the next day Shiny was pretty much invisible - that BB game was trite and silly. Kinda impolitic of him to join the judges and diss other shows when the stars tend to do the rounds of them all.

A few random things that struck me:
1. What was that string like thingy dangling fm the back of Rani's kurta ? It looked very strange.
2. Sonam seems to have borrowed Rani's darji for her wardrobe - the same long billowing outfits.
3. The gift was a nice gesture but in't a saraswasti murti a somewhat un-PC gift given that the participants aren't all Hindu?

anu g said...

Saritha, brilliant as usual.I think I watch the show now mainly so that I can enjoy ur posts!!!U really make a terribly drab show interesting.And Aspi, am glad u r back to being very happy after a sad morning yday! It shows in ur captions!!

m said...

rani irritated the eff out of me..she was so fake and yes the idol gift wasn't nice at all and she was all "i hope u guys worship it"..umm why would ishmeet, toshi and irfan worship it? what a dumba$$

shiny always looks so constipated..he's balding or something? i dont find him good looking at all

the show is a big snoozefest these days, makes me fall asleep

ishmeet was the only good one on saturday only cuz he sang my fave song of the week

anu g said...

Now the shows r judge-swapping! It seems Pritam who was supposed to be the judge of Z Little Champs, was quickly offered a job at VOI;s Kids Champs, and he has accepted. Reminds me of cricketers like Mohd Yusuf scurrying from ICL to IPL.

anu g said...

Here r the details about the war:

m said...

who are the judges at srgmp lil champs? i demand a hottie just to motivate me to watch...

anu g said...

M, do u consider Sonu Nigam hot?He is one of the judges alongwith Suresh Wadkar(ho doubts about him). The third was supposed to Pritam who was usurped by Star, I hope for ur sake that someone interesting makes it!!!!

m said...

no i dont find sonu hot at all.. specially the way he talks..

they should get Neil Mukesh to be the third judge..

i got some fancy new video editing software on my mac that is just begging to be used for a fan video

m said...

who is Suresh Wadkar?? how about those good looking new singers? like atif etc..

If interested in some truly great music.. please visit my blog at
dockaulpresents@blogspot.com.
Hope u do give it a try once.

Joules said...

yeah, Rani sometimes is too sugary for me. I did'nt watch the show but Shiny's hairstyle in that picture looks odd. He is kind of a cute guy otherwise.

Suresh Wadkar use to sing some time ago, now has a successful music teaching school in Mumbai. A lot of the candidates in SRGMP and Indian Idol are his students.

I actually would like someone like Simon from American Idol on the show. Someone who is not afraid of being critical. Actually Sonu does come the closest.

Saritha said...

Aspi,Sidekick and anu! Thank you all.

Aspi,you gave me a fantastic idea for my profile pic.I've been thinking abt it for a while now.I'll go raid the mall for a red jhanda and get my picture taken in Sears....sheesh,Iam left with VoI jhanda lehrane ke liye....ha ha

StarVoiceOfIndiaShow said...

They really mimed it? I wouldn't know because I skipped through last episode.

BTW, no comments about the awesome performance by those two girls? I thought they were simply amazing. In the last episode, Ishmit with 'Jab se Taire Naina' and 'Man Kyon Behka' were the only two performances which I saw and enjoyed.

Saritha said...

Sidekick,

Gifting the contestants was a touching gesture but putting the non-hindus in awkward situation is not nice.She needs to fire her secretary who has not done enough homework.

anu,

Sonu as a judge on SRGMP will be a welcome change.His journey has come a full circle from hosting the show to now judging the same-ofcourse it's lil champ.I hope to see him judge the main edition soon.

Saritha said...

'man kyon behka' is sung by kids.One of the girls actually picked up Asha bhonsle's naughty expressions at such an age.Loved it.

Ishmeet sure surprised me this week with his heart felt consistent performances.Punjab da puttar might win the competition.

anu g said...

Be prepared for an overdose of Shahid this weekend.Was watching the news and saw him on previews of all three shows... as the guest on VOI,Nach Baliye as well as JDJ!

And hey,people r laughing over Aditya;s English accent. Aspi,I think u should write a blog on the English comments the judges make on these shows. I dont understand their need to impress people with their english.They speak hindi, we understand it.Why speak in English, and make such faux pas!

anu g said...

Saritha, theres some Telugu filmi news for u. Chiranjeevi;s daughter eloped today with a young student....all the news channels are flashing it.Details pampinchaanu!What was amusing was Star news which showed a clipping of a song from Dil where Amir and Madhuri sing 'Hum pyaar karne waale, duniya se na darnewale' and then showed a clipping of todays arya samaj wedding of the couple, with the song in the background.The papparazzi sure knows how to make things melodramatic!!

Saritha said...

What??I didn't know he has a second daughter.Shoot!After being awarded Padma Bhushan,launching son Cheran as hero this sure came as shock.It can't get anymore filmy.

Aspi said...

sidekick, Silk Smitha is my one my favorite characters in Indian cinema (I've never watched her in a movie but seeing her picture fills me with admiration and amusement). I had to find a way to put her on the blog.

Manish said...

Silk Smitha, Nylex Nalini , Cotton Kamala, Rayon Revathi, Polyester Parimala, Shiffon Shiela, Rexin Radha ...LOL ... I miss my school days in Pondicherry!

Musing said...

To me the whole idea of judges "performing" along with the contestants seemed to fall flat. The judges looked stricken with autism dancing with two left legs.

I think Rani must have decided to teach them the basics towards the end, with some nifty hip moves and some arm swaying..pretty easy stuff. Except here she was dealing with seriously challenged people and that session to me was a bunch of laughs..I busted my gut rolling all over the floor.

The contestants in the top look like convicts on death row..looking seriously glum, waiting for the death by hanging.

The other idea could be like the 360 degree appraisal they are trying at our workplace..have the contestants sit at the judges place and have the judges sing and dance..Su Aspi Bhai, tame su lagech ?

Aspi said...

If the judges fancy themselves as singers, the idea sounds like a good one. Would make for an amusing show.

On the other hand, the term 360 degree appraisals gives me the jitters. Musing, you must work somewhere familiar :)

StarVoiceOfIndiaShow said...

Amey Date (I think he was a great find) from Indian Idol 2 is also from Suresh Wadkar music school.

P.S.: A small request if you don't mind. When you link to my site, could you use words with spaces like 'Star Voice Of India Show', it will help me a lot in Google. :) Thanks!

Saritha said...

Fantastic,mind blowing idea musing.

Iam all for the 360 degree appraisal.Line up the judges and the production team and get everyone's feedback.Fire them if you want.

Musing said...

Hey Aspi,

Actually its against my philosophy to work. I do show up for "work" as long as they post the fortnightly. Only under severe pressure do I work hard (which is work hardly..).

About the other part, you got me worried now. Do you have many indians at your work place ? Maybe I need to go to another forum now to spend the rest of the day ?!!

Ane Hun Gujju pan nathi ok ?

Actually I am a south Indian ;)

Shekhar Ki Deewani said...

Gees, I frankly do not enjoy this show at all..the drama here sux..Abhijeet luks like a joker wid de new mop of fake bristles he calls 'hair'....[im missing Himesh already..lol...i will only wtch dis show if he is the judge]...and Meg, please ask vishal-Shekhoo to be mentors on Lil champs...if u ever get to talk to dem...Nopes, I dont find Sonu hot...he still luks baccha...
Neil Mukesh is soooo white skinned..luks like hez sufferin from leucoderma...never mind...The episode wid Saawariyan cast...mann dat sucked...RAnbir was jumpin aorund evrywhere like am extra horny munkey finally released to mate...

Saritha said...

msuing, nalla irrikay?

Ok I dont even know what that means.My tamil sucks.Except saapdiya,appidiay-I know nothing.

The rani episode infact brought back some fine college memories when Sakhi released.My cousin saw this movie thrice only to catch a glimpse of the title song.

Rehman's music,Mani's direction-Visual treat.Iam posting the original tamil version with english sub titles.Quality is just OK.

Shekhar Ki Deewani said...

And Rani's gift wud have been more appropriate in Srgmp....Himesh wud have loved it...and btw, her new movie so damn weird...Laaga Chunri...Mann, after watching it I am considering escort services as a profession...rofl...so glossy, so much of money..high profile contacts..hmmmmm....and end of it all u get a high profile husband who doesnt mind it watsoever...absolutely a perfect career choice.

Aspi said...

SkD, that commentary on Abhijeet and Ranbir was hilarious. Meg will be back!

Saritha, thanks for the link. That song is one of my favorites but this version actually sounds better.

Shekhar Ki Deewani said...

Thanks Aspi...:)..Btw, didnt know Meg was into Abhijit..lol...dunt see anythin in common wid him and Shekhoo..:P

Aspi said...

The 20 year old Megan doesn't, but the new ammaji Megan thinks Abhijeet is hot.

Aspi said...

Musing, I have many Indians at my work place. But no one knows where that is. Shoot me an email and I'll tell you.

Shekhar Ki Deewani said...

Lol...frakly is Megan really an amma????I wish she is..!!!

m said...

of course Ranbir would be hawny! he hasn't experienced The Megan yet..

and what's wrong with Neil having lighter skin? i don't know why ppl think its ok to say something like that but hell will break loose if someone says something like "eww Rani is gross, her skin is so dark.." i have had random auntyji's make snide comments like that to me.. LOL i hate the whole skin color talk about this one almost touched a nerve

Neil is sex on legs!
so is Ranbir and Muzammil!

Joules said...

The girl is cute. Who is she? And is that Madhavan? He looks thin.

Joules said...

That comment was on the Sakhi video.

m said...

Shahid!! UFFFF he is so boring.. and he's gonna try and act like he is happy and chappy since everyone knows Kareena broke up with him

I got a feeling he will act like an hyperactive energizer bunny on crack!

Musing said...

Hey Saritha,

Unggala paatthadhu romba santhosham.

Missed your thank you's...I had to go around the office seeing if I can locate Aspi. You never know!! did see someone suspiciously like him in the restroom, but that person spends whole days in the restroom (I fondly look at him as an advanced avatara of myself..maybe in the future I will occupy the next cubicle. Hey, I like restroom's they are so tranquiiil........). In Tam Land my favorite tamil phrase is restroom engai?

I liked the link too much nandree.

Aspi bhai, sandesho kya mokalwu ? tamara pata su che ?

Shekhar Ki Deewani said...

Gees, Megan, I guess I am the only 100% Shekhoo fan den..u seem to have loadsa options after Srgmp...lol...My comments on the skin color was due to my prefernce for normal color on guys...ehehe...and btw, Ranbir luks like a effin drunkard to me...and who's muzzamil???some oder munkey??

Aspi said...

Musing, ahavewala{at}gmail.

I do most of my reading in the bathroom - but not at work.

girlie girl said...

OK, I dont watch this show but your comments are Highly ammusing!! Keep it up, guys!

Saritha said...

Joules,

The girl in 'Sakhi' is Shalini,famous yesteryear child artiste,acted in only a couple of movies as a heroine before marrying a south actor.It's Madhavan's first movie.The original is,in fact,'Alai payuthe' in tamil.

We thought the plot of the movie was novel until a friend introduced us to his friends who actually married in a temple and went back to their homes to lead seperate lives.I dont know what happenend after college.

Musing,

I'll wait till anu wakes up to halp me with all that tamil.:-)

saritha said...

I saw a few 'Saawariya' music release clippings on the net and wondered if the 'kids' here were Sonam/Ranbir OR Salman/Rani for the way they behaved,esp Salman.

http://www.deccan.com/TV%20Guide/TV%20GuideDescription.asp#Fantasy%20family%20drama%20gets%20real%20life%20inspiration

look for 'Melodrama at music release'

m said...

salman is a kid who refuses to grow up, he is so annoying..

m said...

ok not a kid, cuz some kids are cute

he's a spoilt bratty 3 year old on the inside

Shekhar Ki Deewani said...

Salman seems a bit 'cuckoo'to me...remember de way he bhaved at Srgmp...he stripped Oink..which made me puke 10 times...and he did de groin-a$$ dance wid harpreet's 'gamchha'....rofl..

Kanan said...

OMG SKD you're a riot! I almost choked on little slice of the kiwi fruit I was eating while reading your comment. LMAO @ gamchha and your description. Honestly, I love Salman! :o)
Still LMAO.... reading that last comment...

Shekhar Ki Deewani said...

Dhanyavaad Kananben..:)..this is a lame try on comedy..ehehe..i have commented on ur page...excuse my gujarati..:)

Shekhar Ki Deewani said...

the best part of dat episode was wen he attacked Himesh indirectly...it was my fav episode..[after VS special]...i have a snugg feelin dat he stripped Oink to khilli udofy Himesh..

m said...

if i were harpreet i would of put that on ebay, i am sure salman's female fans (or even males) would love to own that after where it had been

Sidekick said...

Aspi, figure u need to watch a full length silk smitha flick --- and then blog on it. maybe manish can give u a recco. rexine radha --- seriously? the other names are pretty wild but rexine radha??? fm the looks of it we missed out on yr skool days, manish :)

saritha, i too love the saathiya soundtrack but i was less than impressed by the performances of humdum soniyo re and the title track. i felt the tempo was off on both but everyone one else seemed to love them. But then rani was the purveyor of positivity on the show and we didn't get any meaningful criticism! the girls did a g8 job with chalka re which did deserve the encore. i also liked ishmeet's jab se teri naina. all the new releases saawariya, OSO, johnny gaddar and no smoking are playing constantly on my MP3 player and some of it is starting to grow on me.

i still don't get the abhaas lurve --- the judges, SLB, now rani. so the kid is good, but all this praise is akin to javed akhtar's OTT comment that amit paul is the best thing since rafi and kishore!

anu g, tfs the news updates. luckily i will get just the one dose of shahid -- on VoI.

Aspi said...

Yes, why not? Life is too short to never have seen a Silk Smitha flick.

Shekhar Ki Deewani said...

Hey Aspi,
I could get some inside stories on this...I have some high profile contacts in the South Indian film industry...
We shud have a separate column on Tollywodd, Kollywood and Aiyo..i think Mollywood..lol

Aspi said...

Gossip that doesn't compromise anyone's friendship or contact status is always welcome :)

minnie said...

it just me or anyone else out there who found ranbir kapoor in the promos a tad feminine(his gestures,i mean...he looks cute off screen)i hope the movie turns out ok and not like BLACK(i found the movie overrated with Amitabh at his hammy best or is it worst?and dependable rani)..but the promos dont look so appealing wit h the very obvious sets..seems the entire movie is on those bluey sets...UGH!

OzAngel said...

Apparently Saawariya is based on a foreign play called White Nights. I googled it, the story seems ok but yeah I'm not a big fan of Ranbir, yet. Emmm, the girl looks Ok, and the music, well it's ok too... Hope SLB manages to pull off this one. Why didn't he hire Ismail D. as a music director? I understand they had a tiff, but SLB-Ismail D kind of... went together?! you know what I mean

OzAngel said...

Now what would be really interesting would be if SLB hired Himesh as a music director!? I wonder how you'd pull that one off!

Mmmm... I can just see.. oooohhhhhhhh marrr dalaaa....oooooohhhhhh ah ah ashiqui mein terrri...maaar dallaaa...maar daala...

Shekhar Ki Deewani said...

When u do a blog on Silk Smitha, pls. note that she is dead (suicide or murder, can't remember). A little easy on her.

i'm not 15 anymore so I think i'd be too old for Himesh..

Shekhar Ki Deewani said...

hey guess wat Aspi..i added Rahul Rawail on FB...and he gave me a call just now..just to know how i was doin:S...wierd...wish Shekhoo cud do dat..:(

Saritha, how come u know so many languages?I remember u wrote a few words in Bengali too.
As for the translation, Musing just said he is very happy to have seen u...and many thanks for the link! Hey i am sure with ur flair for languages, u would hav guessed this!So do u also know Gujarati?

anu g said...

And Saritha, dont worry about support for VOI. I do watch it ,and so do all the Mamis in my family. In fact they all used to watch only SGRGMP.When i returned from Chennai in the summer hols after a month of no tv(parents dont have a set top box, so u get only sun tv and the likes), I was getting re-addicted to the idiot box, and suddenly saw the audition episodes of Abhilasha,Toshi, Sumitra etc. They were fabulous then, and I told all of them to watch VOI!Itna to influence ab bhi hai, so they all r avid followers now!!!(I am known as one of the more diplomatic non-controversial people in the family!Its only on Drift that I often put my foot into my mouth, and then feel shocked at my own behaviour)).Now I am not fishing for compliments.Gosh, Himesh;s self-trumpetting seems to be addicting!! Well, in short, u r not the sole flag bearer, we r all there to support u!!!

Anonymous said...

Reading comments at this Blog is more enjoyable than the actual show !

Aspi said...

Whoever it was, bringing the entire SRGMP toli to the blog was hilarious and touching. I am all choked up to see my favorite people together again.

Aspi said...

Anon, thanks for the heads up on Silk Smitha. Didn't know.

SkD, your success in Bollywood depends on what you want to do. To get a better idea give us the name of the actress you'd most like to replace and I'm sure Drifters will pitch in.

Saritha said...

maaza maache,anu!

Thats all I can say in Gujrati.You are so rt.I wanted to learn those three langs for diff reasons but Iam just too lazy.I picked up few words from friends and family.

Thanks for all the support,anu.Iam relieved to know,Iam not alone here.:)

Anonymous said...

VOI is gonna start lil champs too rite?
the poor kids, someone save them from gajendra singh, he doesn't seem to be quite right these days.
but they definitely got good judges. shreya ghoshal, kunal ganjawala and pritam. isn't it a bit ironic that shreya and kunal were finds from the *rival* show? lol

-qwitiqqx

anu g said...

qwitiqqx,shreya and kunal were finds of the famous gajji, we were made to remember this so many times in the initial episodes of VOI.

Aspi said...

Wah, anu g. I'm sure our new flag bearer will be touched with your support!

Shekhar Ki Deewani said...

Aspi, I dont wanna replace anyone...just want 2 make a place for myself..meri foto dekh ke kya feedback hai?shud i bother trying or no??

Anon & Killer, sorry I had to delete your comments. No outing people please. There is probably a reason someone doesn't use their real name.

Shekhar Ki Deewani said...

hey guys...came across dis really old post from Kanan from the Srgmp site...Hillarious...im sure twill bring back some memories..lol

Aur aap logon ke suna kya? Do din pehle Himesh ko kutte ne kaata aur phir kutte ki tabiyet bahot bigad gayi to kutte ko aspataal mein bharti hona pada hai. Daaktar ne kutte ke pet pe 14 injection lagaaye taaki kutte ko paagalpan ka dohra na pade lekin tabiyet abhi bhi kaafi serious maaloom pad rahi hai. Sabhi contestants aur baaki ke guru bhi itne chinta mein pad gaye ki abhi aspataal mein kutte ka haal dekhne gaye hai.

aspataal mein scene kuch iss tarah hai.

(Kutta ke mooh se kuch sabun ki jhaag jaisa kuch nikal raha hai aur 110 degree bukhaar)

Bappida: arre kutteda, tumhara yeh haal dekhke mujhe bada dukh ho raha hai. main tumhara tabiyet achha ho jaye iss ke liye Bangla logon se dua maangta hai. (sings) Bangla log dua kara, kutteda tandurust ho, Bangla junta I love you, I love you!

ID: abbe kutte, toone kaat kar bhi Himesh ko kaata? usse to sab kutte door rehte hai tum kaise phas gaye yaar. Thoda jyada bhokne pe concintret karo, aur Himesh se door raho yaar. Phir tumhari haalat exiilent ho jaayegi.

Vishal: maine pehle se kaha tha, koi iss Himesh ki jaal mein phasne wala hai. (walks over to kutta and pats him and leaves because he's too upset with the whole situation)

Shekhar: (aankhon mein aansoo) yeh kya haal bana rakha hai? kuch lete kyon nahin? coldarin lee? mera matlab hai anti-Himesh-rasi lee? ussi se tumhara kuch problem solve hoga. (wiping tears off his cheeks)

Amanat Ali: kutte-miyan, tumhare kaatne ki baat to Faisalabad tak pahoch gayi hai aur mere sab dost aur Pakistan ke log ne aap ke khair poochhe hai.

Poonam: (maanging duaa with her mom for kutte ki khair) Khuda iss gareeb ko bhi kuch de de... meri nahin, Himesh ki jholi se.

Saritha and Sidekick,The Hyderabadi is out this week. Irfan did have a weak voice, but he sang some songs very well.So now we have only ishmeet left from AA's team!

m said...

anu g that sucks

I like irfan, he seemed like a nice guy and sang better than abbas. Now i want ishmeet or harshit to win.

toshi is so overrated, so is that annoying kid abbas, i wanna punch him so bad

anu g said...

M, u liked Irfan? I thought u were not too impressed by skeleton-like-people(ref Kunal Kapoor).....just joking. Irfan was one of my favourites too cos he comes across as a very nice person(as u mentioned) and more importantly he is from Hyderabad!!!!
Worse news for u...Toshi topped!!

m said...

haha yeah i like him, i don't think he's a sexy pie but i liked his attitude, persona, singing etc

toshi topped?????? ewww good..now i will never start watching this show again.

The guy's name is Abhaas peeps. And Toshi is one of those guys who thinks they're good. I much preferred his bro Sharib. And Bonjyotsna. They were both better than Ujjaini and Aishwarya. Ujjaini and Aishwarya are coming across as fairly repulsive... and their CD is mostly remakes. Didn't they have something original? Also who looks after them, now that Gajendra's left the SRGMP brand to Zee?

Saritha said...

gosh anu!!that's terrible.BUt the show is,I knew Irfan would go sooner or later after Toshi's re-entry...but it feels bad to know that.

btw,the spoiler is out ususally on Tuesdays,nahi?

Toshi topped again??ha ha...You'll have to read abt that on my post.

Saritha said...

try to make sense of what I just typed with my kiddo trying to type as well.

Aspi, u seem to share a special bond with Silk Smitha.In one of the earlier posts, u suddenly spoke of her and resurrected her out of the past, surprising many of us. And today I read that her last movie which never saw the day of light, is being released soon!!!Uncanny!!!!

Aspi said...

I think Silk Smitha is iconic enough for my generation that she won't ever be forgotten.
