Sakshi Tanwar's grant entry at MAMI Film Festival




Talented Sakshi Tanwar has carved a niche for herself in the Tellyworld world with her role powerful role of Parvati Bhabhi in Ekta Kapoor’s historical show ‘Kahani Ghar Ghar Ki’.

Her short films   'Bawra Mann’ and  'O Re Manwa' were part of the Film Mart section at the 13th Mumbai Film Festival. Sakshi played a bored wife looking for a relationship out of her marriage and the other woman in the two short films respectively. She said she enjoyed trying something she had not done before.

In 2009 'O Re Manwa' won the best international narrative short at the New York International Film Festival while 'Bawara Mann' has travelled to different film festivals across the world  and was an official selection at the La Femme International Film Festival. Both the films are directed by Mitu.

Sakshi said, "I did 'O Re Manwa' first, I played the other woman in it. It was from the point of view of the other woman and it was treated with so much esteem and self-respect, which otherwise you don't get to see because the other woman is always treated with hatred.”

The story of 'Bawara Mann' operates on two levels and I got to play two characters in the same shot - there is a writer, which Nishikant Kamat is playing, and I incarnate his out-of-the-box thinking. I am his thinking which is hounding him into writing what she wants to do in this story. The film revolves around a workaholic husband and his wife who constantly feels lonely and left out, since the husband has no time for her. She is basically searching other relationships out of marriage and she eventually starts dating her husband’s assistant, who is years younger than her. I was agitated and enthralled by the idea of doing two characters in the same shot and that too within the same story. The best part is the director is also a woman and she has written it, so the pride of the wife and the other woman is intact. That is the beauty of the story of ‘Bawara Mann’."

Sakshi played a perfect bahu on the small screen for  more than eight years and now she is seen as an ideal daughter  and wife in 'Bade Achche Lagte Hain', but she says she had no shyness while playing these two unconventional characters in 'Bawra Mann’ and  'O Re Manwa'.

"I was comfortable doing it because shooting for them was so appealing - it was like a workshop. There was no set style and there was a freedom to do something."

Sakshi signed these two films during her break from television, “For eight years when I worked on 'Kahaani Ghar Ghar Kii', I hardly had any time for myself. In a daily soap, you end up working around the clock and that’s what I did too. So after Kahani’s wrap up, I wanted to put my feet up and relax for while so I took a long break, which I truly deserved. I wanted to take a sabbatical. "

"For almost 16 months, I didn’t do anything and just travelled to different places and take pleasure in myself thoroughly. I was getting so many offers during that period. Then I was offered these two short films, and I said yes because I thought they didn't require much time commitment. They were interesting subjects and were giving me an opportunity to do something which I hadn't endeavored. They were bold and significant subjects and I thought I should give it a try," she quips.

The calculation about Gulabo Sapera to surrender to Pooja Misrra’s popularity has come true. Sapera is the latest inmate to be eliminated from the Bigg Boss house.Gulabo is iconic dancer of Kalbalia community in Rajasthan, she survived death after being buried alive as an infant.

Gulabo is not happy at all because of eviction, she was surprised she lost the battle of votes to her rival Pooja Mishra.

"I am shocked that an impolite girl like Pooja Mishra is still staying in the house, whereas I am out of it. It just shows that only ghatiya and bad people can stay there. Bigg Boss house is not the place for people who are decent and cultured. When I was leaving the house that batmeez aurat told me to tell everyone that she's not all that bad. She is quite insecure, she even went into the smoking zone smoked a cigarette and something else too. I am pretty sure she is on drugs. And then she started behaving like a mad person. Most of the people in Bigg Boss are double faced. I am thankful to Endemol and Colors for giving me an oppurtunity to participate in the show,” Gulabo quips.

Gulabo’s exit will boost tremendous confidence in Pooja. It will now be very interesting to watch what the bad lady has in store for other inmates and the viewers.

Yet again Salman Khan played the Good Boy by obliging to the request of fellow star Aamir Khan by postponing the release of his upcoming Bollywood flick Ek Tha Tiger.

Directed by Kabir Khan and produced by Aditya Chopra, the film stars Salman Khan and ex-beau Katrina Kaif in the lead roles. They are currently shooting in Dublin from where it moves on to Turkey for its next schedule. Aseem Mishra is the Director of Photography and the music is composed by Suhail Sen.

The film was supposed to release on June 1 2012.  But now be released during Eid. But the release was postponed since Aamir Khan wanted to release his next film, directed by Reema Kagti, on June 1 and requested Salman Khan and producer Aditya Chopra to reschedule the release of 'Ek tha Tiger'.

Owing to close relationship and mutual respect they share with one another, both Aditya and Salman were happy to oblige and shift the release to Eid.

Since the last three years, Salman has had a release every Eid namely with Wanted, Dabangg and Ready, all of which have been successful at the box office. I hope history will repeat  and Salman gets another hit in his kitty..

[Article for one of the Fashion Magazine]


As we age, the elasticity of our face begins to shrink over time. We might notice that the skin around our mouth and cheekbones has become saggy and fewer firms than it used to be. Well I think sagging jowls or cheeks may look fantastic on a bulldog, but absolutely not on humans.

Like the rest of our body, our face has muscles, and if we do not exercise them they will become less taut.  According to researchers by exercising our cheeks and face, we will look younger without having to get a face lift.

I have always lusted after Kareena Kapoor's high cheekbones, here are few simple exercises to help you get chiseled features without make-up. Try :

1) Sit upright and purse your lips together. Lift your pursed lips to your nose, as far as possible and keep them there for a count of 5. Relax and repeat 5 times.

2) Do Fish face yoga , pucker your lips and suck in your cheeks as far as possible. Do not bite down on your cheeks; simply let them rest under the teeth. Now, using your cheek muscles, try and lift the corners of your mouth in the form of a smile. Hold this for 30 seconds and then repeat the exercise three times. You can feel your cheek muscles warming from extra blood circulation.

3) Pucker your top lip, turning the corners of your lips upwards and move your cheek muscles toward your eyes. You should at this stage get your top lip to touch your nose. Keep this position for 10 counts and then relax. Repeat the exercise 10 times.

4) The next exercise targets the works the buccinator muscles and orbicularis oris muscles (lower cheek muscles and the ones around the lips). You have to make an ‘O' with your lips placing the upper lips over the teeth. Now place your index fingers over your cheeks. With your fingers firmly placed on your cheeks, Smile and push up the cheek muscles while using light pressure with the fingers as resistance. Hold for five seconds, relax. Repeat 30 times.

5) Smile as widely as possible (while keeping your lips closed and mouth corners turned up). Try to get the corners of your mouth to touch your ears. Next, wrinkle your nose and see your cheek muscles move upwards and feel these muscles work. Keep this position for a count of 5 and then relax. Repeat 10 times.

6) The third exercise is famous and is called Satchmo, named for legendary trumpet player Louis Armstrong, who was nicknamed Satchmo. Sit with the spine erect. Take a deep breath and fill your cheeks with air. Move the air from one cheek to the other. Keep moving this ball of air back and forth until you're out of breath, and then blow it out. Repeat five times. You should feel the burn in the muscles and a flush from the circulation boost.

7) Another exercise for your face and cheekbones is to make the widest smile that you can. Imagine the top corners of your smile are touching your ear lobes. Hold this position. Now wrinkle your nose and feel the cheek muscles become tense. Keep your face in the smiling position and bring your nose down and up ten times.

As the faces that you will be making will be hilarious, so I recommend to do these exercises when you are alone, because you will constantly be laughing if you and a friend try this together.

Amar Upadhyay is going to spice up the Bigg Boss house



India’s biggest controversial reality show Bigg Boss 5 is set to get its second male participant in Amar Upadhyay.  Right now Bollywood Baddie Shakti Kapoor is the only male contestant in the show.

Amar earned nationwide fame as Mihir Virani in Ekta Kapoor’s historic show ‘Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi’. His entry will be aired tonight.

Amar assured to raise the heat inside rather than cool things down. "It's going to be so much fun.  I am going to heat up the house. Shakti Kapoor is an Uncle and nobody is interested to watch 50 years old Shakti, todays crowd want to see something cool and happening inside”, Amar quips.

Bigg Boss house is already a pot of controversies thanks to constant arguments among participants. Amar said he will not play a peacemaker in the house. He wanted to ignite more fire in the house.

The 37-year-old wanted to end Shakti’s supremacy inside the house. Amar was featured Viraasat and Chand Ke Paar Chalo. He even had a stint on the big screen with super flop film Dhund--The Fog and L.O.C. Kargil. He was offered first season of the show, but he was busy with Viraasat. Then he was offered fourth season, again he was busy in travelling. Endemol again approached him and this time he agreed.

Probably today Sonika Kaliraman who is 6 month pregnant will make a voluntary exit from the house.

Amar is far cry from what Mihir was, lets wait and watch how his wild card entry put the TRP’s on fire.

[Article for one of the Fashion Magazine]
The fifth installment of popular TV reality show 'Bigg Boss' started on 2nd Octomber, it promises to get bigger and better with tons of drama and manipulation. The house location is changed to Karjat from Lonavala, with two star hosts --Salman and Sanjay. Interior designer Shayam Bhatia has designed the 9,000 square feet house.

This time there are two separate bedrooms, in last season there was a single bedroom where all 14 housemates stayed. The bedrooms have been done in shades of green and fuchsia with a hint of white, brown and yellow. The confession room varies with a shade of royal green & the jail concept is back and black.
Open kitchen is connected to a dining room that extends to the garden area. The outdoor spot consists of a gymnasium, pool, the activity area and the kitchen sink. There will be a special bedroom for the Head-of-House who will get special privileges. This season there will be over 55 cameras following every move of the contestants 24x7.

Colors kept participants as ‘National Treasures’ in there Kitty while media is tried their best to get the cat out of the bag.  The format of the show has undergone a major change from the previous seasons which had seven male and seven female contestants. It's almost a "Bachna ae haseeno" moment in the "Bigg Boss" house this season. Baddie Shakti Kapoor is the only male contestant amidst 13 beauties in the Bigg Boss 5 house.  So there's plenty of bird watching opportunity for the men, but for the female viewers, there's only 50 years old Shakti.

Shakti Kapoor was stuck in controversy after a news channel aired tapes shot with hidden camera showing the actor seeking sexual favors from a journalist camouflaged as a Bollywood aspirant. It would be appealing to see if Shakti has some disclosures to make on the show.

Let’s have a look at the other contestants in the Bigg Boss season 5 and check who Shakti will want beside him:

MAHEK CHAHAL made her Bollywood debut in 2003 with a role in Nayee Padosan, she also did an item number in Chameli movie. She is sexy and a good pal of host Salman Khan. Befriending the host’s friend is a good way to stay on the show.

SONALI NAGRANI won Miss India International pageant in 2003 and subsequently finished first runner-up of Miss International 2003.She did ancoring for Indian Premier League shows for Sony TV India and ITV, she has appeared in supporting roles in Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi and Dil Bole Hadippa. She is delightful and can be quite the charmer.

POOJA MISHRA is model turned actor, she is trained belly dancer and Kathak beauty also has two Bollywood movies tucked under her curvaceous belt — one is an action film and the other is a satire. She loves to dance and it’s a well known fact that Shakti loves to groove too. He would definitely want to do an item number with Pooja at some point.

JUHI PARMAR is TV actress and she essayed lead roles in Shaheen, Kumkum, Devi, Pehchanand Tere Ishq Mein She is married to Sachin Shroff, the duo was last seen together in reality show 'Pati Patni Aur Woh'. Dominating Juhi loves soap operas, considering she earned her fame acting in Kumkum. Shakti loves drama too, considering there is so much of it in his life. So they can create good Drama in the house.

SHRADHA SHARMA is well known as beau of Raja Chaudhary (Shweta Tiwari's estranged husband). Raja assaulted her after the couple had a heated argument and then Shraddha was severely beaten up by him and suffered bruises and scratches all over her body. Still they are in live-in relationship.  She is in news for all wrong reasons. Shakti does well with controversies too, so they should get along well.

LAXMI NARAYAN TRIPATI Like every year, colors roped a transgender, Laxmi is well known social activist. She will continue the tradition of representing sexual transgender minorities on the show which started with actor Bobby Darling, followed by designer Rohit Verma and Begum Nawazish Althat. Shakti may turn to Laxmi and union with her if all the women start giving him a hard time in the house.

POOJA BEDI shot to fame with her stint in Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikandar, she was part of reality shows like ‘Jhalak Dikhla Jaa’, ‘Nach Baliye’, ‘Khatron Ke Khiladi’ and was last seen in ‘Maa Exchange’.She had hosted the Saturday special episode of Bigg Boss season 2 where she interviewed the evicted contestants and this season we will see her participate in it. She is also the daughter of Kabir Bedi, I think Shakti won’t want to cross his contemporary B-towner and get Pooja out of the show.


NIHITA BISWAS is the wife of smuggler and serial killer Charles Sobhraj. Sobraj was nicknamed the bikini killer and is serving life imprisonment in Nepal, and instantly acquired mini celebrity status. 22-years old Nihita got married Sobhraj last year, is all set to take her first step towards stardom. Nihita loves bad boys and Shakti Kapoor has perfected the bad boy image like no other B-towner. I guess they will be a perfect match.

VIDA SAMADZAI is Miss Afghanistan 2003, she is a woman who is courageous enough to wear a bikini and get banned by her home country Afghanistan. Which man wouldn’t be keen on to be with someone like her?

GULABO SAPERA is well known Rajasthani folk dancer and also a women’s rights activist. If all the younger chicks don’t pay Shakti any attention then he could turn to this gaon ki chori.

SONIKA KALIRAMAN daughter of legendary wrestler Master Chandgi Ram is a wrestler. She is six months pregnant and it would be truly strange to see Shakti woo her. So let’s hope for his own good that he doesn’t fall for this wrestler.

RAAGESHWARI LOOMBA is an Indian pop singer, actress, model, television anchor and former MTV VJ. Bad boy Shakti has tried his hand at different phases of filmmaking, but the one thing he hasn’t done so far is sing. He might bond with buddly Raageshwari.

I am pretty sure that this easy companionship between the two hosts Salman and Sanjay, 13 sizzling beauties and Aaoo boy Shakti Kapoor are sure to double the ratings of the show.

[Article for one of the Magazine]
Hollywood socialite and hotel heiress Paris Hilton came to India on a three-day trip; she astonished a beggar in Mumbai by giving her $100. She might have thought her bighearted present might improve the life of the woman seeking alms at least for a few days.

The socialite reportedly spotted a poor woman begging with a baby in her arms on the streets of Mumbai, when she was going to launch her bag store. The car slowed down and Hilton handed the $100 note through the window. This isn't the first time Hilton has been this charitable. A couple of weeks back, when was in France and tipped the local cab-driver a $100.

Ishika 22-year-old beggar wondered what the $100 was because she had never seen a dollar note before.  She even asked people around her if they could give her change in exchange of the American currency. She later handed over the note to her brother-in-law, requesting him to get it exchanged for the corresponding value of Indian currency.  Her greedy relatives began to quarrel among each other for the note and started assaulting her brother-in-law and even tried to wangle the note forcefully from him.  Frustrated brother-in-law tore it into pieces to permanently bring the fight to an end.


Ishika said, "As usual I was begging outside a mall in Andheri. All of a sudden I saw a foreigner and was about to approach her for money. But she called me herself, and handed over the strange note.  I requested several people on the road if they could give me change in return for it. Sometime told me it’s a dollar, I gave it to my brother-in-law and asked him to get it exchanged for the correct notes. But all our hungry relatives began demanding that we share the money with them, I did not want to share it with then, as the foreigner had gifted it to me. My brother-in-law got really angry with the incident and tore it up into pieces.

Ishika's brother-in-law said, "Members of our community were assaulting us, so they could have the note.  Seeing the misunderstanding and sadness caused by the money, I angrily tore it up.  Now I regret my action, it was worth 5000 Rs."

Paris also showed her concern on micro-blogging site for the widespread poverty in the country. She wrote, “India is beautiful, but some parts are very poverty stricken. Broke my heart to see babies sleeping on the streets. What are the most credible non-profit charity organizations here in India? After seeing what I've seen, I want to help make a difference.”

Reportedly some media people were present when Hilton handed $100(approx Rs 5,000) to the poor woman. I guess the reporters and the people around there were very well aware about the dollar then why they didn't help the beggar to exchange the note?

 Of late there have been certain rumors making rounds that Parul Chauhan is participating in the biggest controversial reality show on Indian Television Bigg Boss.  Parul (well known as Ragini of Rajan Shahi’s blockbuster Bidaai) clarified that she has not been approached about being one of the housemates in the reality show.

 “I am surprised why people are putting my name on the confirmed list? Sara was part of last season, maybe that’s why people started speculating that I am part of Bigg Boss 5. No one has got in touch with me to participate in the show. If given an opportunity to participate in Bigg Boss then I will definitely say YES.", Parul quips.

Talking about upcoming shows, bubbly actress further informs to have got a couple of offers but nothing has been finalized as of now.

We wish the actress all the best.

Bigg Boss 5 Press Conference..!


Yesterday there was a pleasurable press meet of Bigg Boss Season 5 at Mehboob Studio in Bandra. Salman Khan and Sanjay Dutt were at their playful best on stage.  It started off late but the media greeted Salman and Sanjay with a roaring applause once they took centre stage and started their monkeyshines.

There were many more hilarious moments during the conference; the one that really stood out was when Sanjay asked Salman for how many crores would he consider going inside theBigg Boss house.

Salman in his casual way quipped, “Hum dono to free mein bandh ho jaate hain” Both of them laughed at their own jokes, which made a mockery of their own lives more than anyone elses.  The bonding between Sanjay-Salman is extremely entertaining.

Sanjay asked who should be put in the house – Mike Tyson or Shakira – and everyone said both, to which he said, “Itna budget nahi hai bhai”. It is a noticeable hint that either of the two international stars could be on the show.

Salman was operated in the US for nerve disorder & after the post-operative session, he soon joined the cast and crew of ‘Ek Tha Tiger’ in Dublin. Despite of not being well he kept his commitment to the Colors channel and was be present at the launch of Bigg Boss 5.

Sanjay asked Salman the question about his health. “My surgery went well and I was a 100% ok now, even though its 30-40% healed. I was stooting in Durbin for my film Ek Tha Tiger, the cold there messed it up a bit and it hurts to even laugh loudly right now, but with all the prayers, love and support from everyone, I am going to be 100% fine very soon. I will go back in 3-4 months for another checkup and then, I’ll be back in full form” quipped Salman.

Looking at Salman, one would not guess the man just went through a major illness. He charmed everyone present at the Bigg Boss 5 press meet.

When asked whom Salman wants to be in Bigg Boss house this season, he said he wants to put filmmaker David Dhawan because he cannot desist from food inside the house. He said he fears for his health and cares too much about him to let him continue binging.

Every time when we are all out eating at the deluxe restaurants in any part of world, David will look at another diner’s plate and request the waiter, *Mujhe who chahiye jo who kha raha hai*. Sometimes David picks up food from anyone’s plate, he doesn’t care whether that other person is friend or stranger. And he even does not let go of any chance to pick up leftovers from room service food plates outside hotel rooms. His food habits are that bad, and if he goes into the house, he will become fit and healthy because food is a big issue inside the house as you all know.”

Salman said to Sanjay, “You are four years older than me and I’m Bhai and you’re Baba. How did you manage this Baba? You started calling me Bhai jaan and now I am jagat bhaijaan”.

Raj Nayak and Ashwini Yardi (CEO and Programming Head of Colors respectively) were also present there.

Official list of participants are not yet revealed, the first episode will be aired from 2 October on Colors.
I am pretty sure that this easy companionship between the two hosts is sure to double the ratings of the show.
