Mumbai, April 27 (IANS) Actress Annapurna Bhairi will be seen portraying ‘Dadi’, also known as Girija Devi, in the show ‘Chaahenge Tumhe Itnaa’.

The actress describes her character as very old-school and adept in the skill of dominance.

Annapurna, who portrays the mother to the character of Amit and Amrita’s mother-in-law, sheds light on her character, expressing her excitement about playing a role that is completely opposite to her real-life persona.

“My character, Girija Devi, in ‘Chaahenge Tumhe Itnaa’ is someone who has mastered the skill of dominance. She is very old-school when it comes to her lifestyle and wants the entire family to adhere to the rules that she believes in. Amrita herself is scared of her mother-in-law, as she is here to put everyone in their places, and she’s on it without any hesitation,” she said.

The actress added: “Whereas in real life, I’m completely different. My nature off-screen is very soft-spoken, and I don’t like to dominate.”

The plot of the upcoming episodes will keep the entertainment game on top.”

‘Chaahenge Tumhe Itnaa’ airs on Shemaroo Umang.

Mumbai, June 22 (IANS) Actress Twinkle Khanna says she is thrilled to see actor Bobby Deol doing so well.

The two made their Bollywood debut together in the 1995 film ‘Barsaat’.

Twinkle took to Instagram and shared two sets of pictures.

One from the present and the other, a throwback from their debut film ‘Barsaat’, which featured her and Bobby, who recently created waves with his portrayal of the menacing Abrar in the Ranbir Kapoor-starrer ‘Animal’.

“Kal and Aaj Kal. It’s not just Pinky Masi who is a @iambobbydeol fan, I am as thrilled to see him doing so well. Nostalgia has a sweet aftertaste, and it was fun catching up and waving out at renditions of who we once used to be,” Twinkle captioned the post, adding the song ‘Humko Sirf Tumse Pyaar Hai’ from the film to the background of the images.

‘Barsaat’ is a romantic action film directed by Rajkumar Santoshi.

'Panchayat 3': Fans root for Abhishek Tripathi to stay in Phulera, want ‘hero’ to ‘fail’

Published

on

By

New Delhi, June 22 (IANS) First things first, have you ever prayed for your hero to “fail”? The answer might, or rather, actually be “no”! But one series which hit Amazon Prime last year and continues to rule the top chart has changed that perspective!

Yes, we are talking about the short-budget critically acclaimed and much-loved ‘Panchayat’. Every fan of that series wants ‘Sachiv Ji’ Abhishek Tripathi (played by actor Jitendra Kumar) to fail in his attempt to crack the CAT and remain in Phulera for the rest of his life!

When TVF first introduced ‘Panchayat’, Abhishek Tripathi was desperate to escape the village he deemed dull and uninspiring. However, as the series unfolded, he began to develop a fondness for Phulera.

In season 2, after meeting Rinki (Sanvikaa) at the water tank for the tea break, his love for the village grows manifold. Rinki, wearing a long Kurti and tight-fitted jeans, looked ‘desi’ girl and modern at the same time. And why not, she is the daughter of Pradhan ji, the most advanced family in that village.

Fans were awestruck by the onscreen chemistry between Sachiv ji and Rinki, flooding social media with their memes.

In the newly released Season 3, Abhishek still harbours ambitions to clear the CAT exam but finds himself increasingly drawn back to village life, especially after being suspended by the local MLA Chandu, played by Pankaj Jha.

There are several ups and downs this season, and credit goes to the director, Deepak Kumar Mishra — who gave equal screen time to all the characters, even to the “Baans” (bamboo)! Yeah, you read it right, a piece of bamboo, too, has a story to share on screen. Hats off to the creative side!

UP Pradhan (Vice-president) a.k.a ‘Prahlad Cha’ (Faisal Malik), is silent and drunk most of the time (because of the death of his son, who was in the army), but his little laughter in between, made fans’ eyes wet. He, who used to follow ‘Pardhan ji’ (Raghubir Yadav) blindly, now questions him and blames him for the mess. He is not interested in contesting the next elections either.

Well, there are a lot of characters to discuss, but let’s get back to the hero, ‘Sachiv ji’.

The appearance (clothes) may not be the old Abhishek Tripathi, even the skin tone. But the dialogue delivery and style continue to impress the masses.

The love affair of Rinki and Sachiv ji is a treat to watch — shyness, fear, and cuteness loaded with fun.

How ‘Mehmaan’ (the husband of Rinki’s best friend) — with whom Sachiv ji had a fight with in the first season over the revolving Chair — helps him get in the back seat of the car to be with Rinki, hits differently.

The final episode shows the hero giving one tight slap — the most satisfying part of all three series — to the villain Bhushan Kumar a.k.a ‘Banrakas’ played by actor Durgesh Kumar, after Pradhan ji gets shot at by unknown shooters.

His street fight with the MLA and others reminds everyone of the famous UP ‘Battle of Baghpat’ – laughter that can’t be controlled.

In the end, Sachiv ji and others are taken to the police station, and his brother questions him about whether one can get admission to college after a police case is registered. The silence at that moment raises several doubts, about whether now he wants to leave or not.

But one thing is confirmed, fans want their hero to fail!

Social media is filled with memes, and netizens requesting the director to “fulfil” their wish.

“Please, don’t make him clear the exam,” quipped one user. Another wrote, “First time, CAT looks unimpressive in front of Sachiv post.”

“I wish Sachiv ji to fail his exam and remain in Phulera with Rinki and others. Hello, TVF, can you do that,” wrote a social media user.

There are several such requests on the internet and it will be interesting to see how the director and writer balance Season 4.

As of now, signing off with current Insta reel trending song, Manoj Tiwari’s…‘Hind Ke Sitara’!

Los Angeles, June 22 (IANS) Actor-singer Justin Timberlake addressed his recent arrest for the first time during his concert in Chicago on Friday evening.

“It’s been a tough week. I know I’m hard to love sometimes, but you keep loving me right back,” Timberlake told the United Center crowd, reports pagesix.com.

Timberlake made these remarks during a message to his fans, emphasising that they’ve both been through “ups-and-downs and lefts-and-rights.”

However, on Thursday, a music industry insider confirmed that the legal incident would not affect the ongoing tour and that he would “continue promotion for his album (‘Everything I Thought It Was’) as planned, which, of course, includes his tour dates.”

'Bigg Boss OTT 3’: Sana Makbul says ‘I won’t cook for you’ to Sai Ketan Rao as ugly fight erupts

Published

By

Mumbai, June 22 (IANS) It has only been a day since the contestants entered the ‘Bigg Boss OTT 3’ house, and the fights have already begun.

Television actress Sana Makbul and Sai Ketan Rao got into an ugly spat over the unfair distribution of food.

In the upcoming episode, a fight erupts over a breakfast dispute that divides the house into vegetarian and non-vegetarian factions.

The conflict begins when Ranvir Shorey questions Chandrika Dixit and Payal Malik about the unequal distribution of meals, citing concerns about balanced diets.

This leads to a heated argument, with the vegetarians countering Ranvir’s claims by highlighting the ration shortage.

The argument escalates between Sana and Sai Ketan, who said: “Having only two eggs for breakfast isn’t acceptable. We’ll go hungry. Don’t impose your decisions and opinions on us.”

Sana then refuses to cook for Sai, who replies, “I don’t need your food or eggs. I’m not obligated to heed your words — you’re not Bigg Boss. Save your acting for outside and stop playing the victim in everything.”
