Sonu Nigam Says ‘Sob Stories’ On Reality Shows Are Marketing Gimmick, Contestants Are ‘Dhurandhars’

Mumbai: Singer Sonu Nigam, who is known for his outspoken nature and explosive statements, has now made a controversial statement about the reality of sob stories on reality shows. He said that the ‘sob stories’ are being used in reality shows as a marketing gimmick. The ace singer, who himself judged shows such as Sa Re Ga Ma Pa and Indian Idol, said that ‘sob stories’ are clearly working or else they would not be highlighted so often in the show. He, however defended his statement, that the contestants are ‘extremely talented’ in their own right. He also talked about the trend of calling the attention to the contestants’ backstories on reality shows.

Speaking with TOI, he expressed,”If they weren’t working (sob stories), it would not be happening so often on reality shows. In the deepest corner of my heart, I feel sob stories are working. It is a marketing thing, and people are not fools. Their hearts are in the right place. I also feel that the contestants in reality shows are extremely talented. They are ‘dhurandhars’.

Saying he is no one to comment on music reality shows, he further added “They are doing well, getting good viewership and the singers are phenomenal,” he expressed. When questioned if he is willing to be back as a judge of a reality show, the singer said, “If I feel I can contribute to a show and they come with an offer, why not? If I feel I am a misfit, I won’t do it.”

Earlier this month, Sonu Nigam grabbed eyeballs after he reacted to the infamous Indian Idol 12 controversy.  He had posted a video on his Instagram account in which he said, “Nobody can do justice to the legendary Kishore Kumar songs. His son Amit Kumar is a great man and he has seen this industry much more than us. He is a very quiet and dignified person. He is not saying anything and you are taking undue advantage of this. I want to tell the Indian Idol team to end this controversy. There’s no fault of Amit ji and Indian Idol as well.”

The Kal Ho Na Ho singer had even opposed Aditya Narayan and Manoj Muntashir and stepped forward in support of Amit Kumar saying, “I want to even tell Manoj Muntashir and Aditya Narayan to not say anything about Amit Kumar. He is a senior and we should maintain that respect for a senior. if a senior criticise you, you don’t take offence, you think about where you went wrong and you improve yourself,”.

Currently, Indian Idol 12 is hosted by Aditya Narayan. The shoot setup has been shifted to Daman amid the outbreak of novel Coronavirus pandemic as the shooting of films and TV shows have been put to halt in Mumbai in this situation.

Anupamaa Major Twist: New Male Lead To Enter Show As Anupamaa’s Love Interest?

Anupamaa Spoiler Alert: Rupali Ganguly and Sudhanshu Pandey starrer Anupamaa had its mega episode on June 13 (Sunday). The episode marked Anupamaa’s new journey as a single woman, without Vanraj. She will go on a journey of self-discovery with of course, the much-drama. If reports are to be believed, Rajan Shahi and the team have plans to bring a new male lead to the show soon. The new lead will be the new love interest of Anupamaa, who might help her to set her own dance academy.

In this week’s episodes, the viewers will witness while Anupamaa is happily cleaning up the storeroom and turning it in her room along with her family members, Kavya gets only upset after she finally shifts to Vanraj’s room. From finding Anupamaa’s saree to her handkerchief to other stuff, she just keeps getting furious. Vanraj tells her that Anupamaa has stayed in the room for 25 years and so it will take time for her to adjust in the same room. He also advises Kavya to behave like a daughter-in-law and stop chanting that she is the one.
It came as a big shock to Kavya and Vanraj after Bapuji divided the Shah house into three parts. While he gave each part to his children – Vanraj and Dolly, he also gave Anupama her deserving right in the house. Though Anupamaa did not accept it initially, Bapuji left her no choice as he said that he would not eat anything until she accepts it. Later, Baa comes to the doorstep with an aarti plate but to perform aarti of Anupamaa and not of Kavya, who keeps on claiming to be the new ‘bahu’ of the family. Bapuji holds the hand of Anupama and calls her ‘Lakshmi, Saraswati, and Anapoorna’. Well, it was quite emotional for Anupamaa for sure but not at all good for Kavya. The new ‘bahu’ enters the house and the toran on the door falls. Baa taunts Kavya by saying that the new bride has already started to show signs of destruction.

Kavya, on the other hand, has vowed to make the lives of each member of the Shah family miserable following recent developments.

Neena Gupta Reveals To Kareena Kapoor Khan She Was on Verge of Getting Married, But He Canceled Wedding At Last Minute

Mumbai: On Monday, actor Kareena Kapoor Khan launched Neena Gupta’s autobiography, titled Sach Kahun Toh. During an Instagram interaction between the two divas, the Sardar Ka Grandson actor revealed that when she was writing the book, she realised that during her prime years, she has been without a lover or husband. She further admits having small affairs but accepts that she was ‘lonely’. She also recalled being on the verge of getting married to one man, but called off the wedding ‘last minute’. Neena and cricketer Vivian Richards has a daughter together, Masaba Gupta.

Neena told Kareena, “In fact, while I was writing the book, I realised in my prime years I have been without a lover or husband. Because I came here, then small affairs, nothing really materialised. Basically, I was all alone. Even with Vivian, he was far away, he had his own life. We met very seldom.”

She recalled that she was on a verge of getting married to one man but he canceled the wedding last minute when she was shopping for clothes. “Till today I don’t know, that happened. But what can I do? I moved on. I would have loved to get married to him. I had a lot of respect for his father, mother. I was living in their house. He’s going to read, he’s alive, he’s happily married. He has children”, she added.

Watch Here:

She said that people say she lived her life on her own terms but as per her, she never did. “People say I lived my life on my own terms. Actually, I never did. Wherever I went wrong, I accepted it and moved forward. I wanted to have a normal husband, children, my in-laws. When I see other people I do feel a little envious. I did not blame, I did not become alcoholic, because what I wanted I did not get”, she said.

Talking about the autobiography ‘Sach Kahun Toh’ will trace Neena Gupta’s journey from her initial days when she was a student at the National School of Drama (NSD), her personal life, love affair with cricketer Vivian Richards and their daughter and ace fashion designer Masaba Gupta and her successful second innings in Bollywood. It will also address issues such as film industry politics, the casting couch, and what it takes for a young actor to survive in the entertainment industry without a godfather.

Sushant Singh Rajput First Death Anniversary: SSR Brother-in-Law Shares Heartfelt Note, Says ‘His Name Is Synonymous With Immortality’

Sushant Singh Rajput First Death Anniversary: Late actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s brother-in-law Vishal Kirti shared a long heartfelt note to mark the actor’s first death anniversary. In the new blog post, he talked about how SSR’s death affected the family. He said that the actor’s death left a ‘big void which is devoid of everything but grief’. He wrote, “There are moments in life which are so defining that they partition your life into two parts- before and after. Sushant’s death was that event in our family. Everything has changed but still a lot remains the same. The incongruence of this statement is best explained with the dichotomy between the internalities and externalities. Externally, we are doing practical things like earning a living, raising our children and supporting our parents, which are the same as before. But internally, we experience a big void which is devoid of everything but grief.” (Also Read: Sushant Singh Rajput Would Break Into Shah Rukh Mode in a Snap: Tahir Raj Bhasin | Exclusive)

Talking about his wife Shweta Singh Kirti, he revealed that this entire month, she is on a ‘solitary retreat’ with ‘no human contact whatsoever. “This entire month, she is on a solitary retreat, deep into the mountains, with no human contact whatsoever. Not only human contact, she has no means of communication like internet or cell phone or even a car to drive back. All we know is the date and time when she would like to be picked up from her barebones cabin in the mountains”, he continued.

For Vishal, ‘staying productive and taking care of responsibilities’ has helped him cope up with the tragic death of Sushant. He further added, “I am writing this today in the public forum so that people can appreciate that getting justice for your family member is only one of the components of grieving. Justice is certainly important but tending to the broken hearts is also important. Talking about death, loss, and grief are very difficult topics and I hope this post not only opens up this discussion but act as a soothing balm for the grieving hearts. I also understand that Sushant was a national treasure and hence his loss is a little different since it’s not only a loss for family and friends but also a loss for the nation. I am not a professional in the field of grief’ and is only sharing what he knows from first-hand experiences and ‘amateur research.”

He further wrote, “As I said earlier, not everyone will necessarily experience all five stages and not in the linear order either. When we experience these stages, at the least we know that we are not alone in this and these are common across humanity. It’s ok to experience these things so that we grieve properly. If we don’t grieve properly, it will be very difficult to sustain our lives. Even after reaching a state of acceptance, there is a complete understanding that the void will remain unfilled permanently. We can go back to laughing with our children and friends with time, but a deep knowledge of this undercurrent void persists even in those moments.”

“Sushant Singh Rajput is not only a source of pride for my wife’s family but also for his millions of admirers. Sushant was certainly gifted and special and honed his craft to excellence with hard work. He studied interesting books and worked and took interest in different areas. He donated generously and had big aspirations, not only for himself but for society in general. He was loving and kind, childlike and innocent, playful yet deep, a paradox of existence”, he added.

At the end, he concluded by saying, “He leaves behind a legacy which matters for generations to come. All his positive qualities will be an inspiration for our youth and his rise in society from humble beginnings will be a model to be studied, not limited to the context of cinema but from the perspective of experiments and outcomes. His works in the performing arts are a treasure trove of emotions for his admirers to absorb, experience and to live vicariously through his story. And his name is now synonymous with Immortality!”

Sushant Singh Rajput was found dead at his Mumbai apartment on June 14 last year.

Sushant Singh Rajput Never Used Glycerin, His Tears Were Real: Nitesh Tiwari Remembers SSR

Remembering Sushant Singh Rajput: Actor Sushant Singh Rajput died a year back and left a huge void in the lives of his fans and colleagues. Sushant’s director, Nitesh Tiwari, remembered him in his latest interview with a news daily. The actor had worked with Tiwari in Chhichhore, a film that ironically talked about suicide and failures of life. In an interview with ETimes, Nitesh Tiwari recalled Sushant’s ability to express emotions on-screen without using glycerin. Most actors use a glycerin drop to bring artificial tears in their eyes while shooting for a scene, but Sushant, as revealed by Tiwari, was a natural actor who did all his emotional scenes without the use of glycerin.

“Another thing I need to tell here is he never used glycerine in emotional scenes. I would ask him, ‘How are you managing to get tears?’ and he would say, ‘Yeh mera secret hai sir’. He did not tell me his secret but he came prepared and he had so many crying scenes with both the younger and older Ani and not even once in those shots did he use glycerine,” said Nitesh.

The director went to talk about Sushant being a method actor. He said that he had this inherent quality of ‘internalising’ a character to its core. So much so that it used to be emotionally exhausting for him sometimes. “He was a method actor, who would internalise something to get into that mood and perform. He would just get tears in his eyes and to me, that was quite a revelation,” Nitesh Tiwari added.

Sushant was found dead at his apartment on June 14, 2020. While Mumbai Police called it a case of suicide in its preliminary investigation, Sushant’s family registered a separate FIR with the Bihar police against Rhea Chakraborty (Sushant’s girlfriend at the time of his death) and others alleging abetment of suicide. The case is currently being handled by the Central Burau of Investigation (CBI), while another drug case connected to the Sushant Singh Rajput death case is being probed by the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB).

May he rest in peace!

The dispute between Karan and Nisha escalated on the night of May 31 when the Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai actor was arrested following Nisha’s complaint of domestic abuse. However, Karan, who was released on bail on June 1 later claimed that Nisha had hurt herself and is making false allegations against him of having an extramarital affair. He also added that Nisha is demanding huge alimony and is bipolar. On the other hand, Nisha held a press conference and presented her side of the story and claimed that Karan is making false stories. Karan too accused Nisha of switching off the camers installed at the couple’s house alleging that everything was ‘orchestrated and planned.’ However, Nisha also accepted that she had switched off the cameras some time ago alleging that Karan would be at his best behaviour wherever there were cameras but in the bedroom, where they didn’t have a camera, he would ‘abuse’ and ‘hit’ her.

In a chat with TOI, he admits that he wants to marry Mahira and now he has purchased a new house in her building in Mohali. He said, “Of course, I still want to marry Mahira Sharma. She is a beautiful girl and she is my very good friend. In fact, I have purchased a new house in her building only in Mohali. Most of the time we are together only, eating meals together. And since my mom is also staying with me, Mahira and my mom have come really close to each other. They also go shopping together. We are not yet girlfriend-boyfriend officially. Our bond is very good now. We want our relationship’s progression to be natural.”


His personal life became a big talking point on the reality show and his break-=up with Akanksha Puri made headlines. Clarifying on allegations made by her against Paras that she was spending in his expensive clothes and other things, he said, “It’s sad that I never got a chance to clarify anything. The allegations made by my Akanksha, that she was spending on my expensive clothes and other things, were not true. Akanksha was not taking care of me financially. I was doing two shows, so how could I not have money? I was not living with her, so there was no point in meeting her post the break-up. When I came out of the house and saw what she had said about me on social media, I felt there was no point in meeting her.”

Paras also spoke about his fight with host Salman Khan on the show when the actor brought up the matter with him regarding ex-girlfriend Akanksha. “No, I do not regret my fight with Salman Khan. People do not speak up on weekend episodes of the reality show, but I ask why? I respect him but both of us are a part of the same show and if anyone of us is wrong, we have the right to correct each other and that is what I did. He was okay with me in that very episode only”, he said.


He also addressed the hair patch that became a talking point among people on social media. Sharing that it is was shocking, he added, “Actresses do a lot of things to look good, so why can’t an actor who is losing his hair opt for a hair patch? Before entering the Bigg Boss house, I was playing the role of Raavan in a show where I was wearing headgear weighing 12 kgs every day. That’s when the hair on a certain part of my head turned scanty and so, I chose to wear a hair patch in BB 13. It’s shocking that it became a talking point!”

Shilpa Shetty Row: After Raj Kundra, His Sister Reena Breaks Silence on Husband’s Affair With Kavita

Shilpa Shetty row: After Raj Kundra’s explosive interview defending Shilpa Shetty and blaming his ex-wife Kavita for the divorce, his sister Reena Kundra has also spoken out on the issue. In her latest statement to an entertainment portal, Reena claimed that it was her former sister-in-law and her ex-husband who were responsible for wrecking her and her brother’s marriage. Reena said that she had trusted Kavita with all her heart but she ended up having an affair with her husband. Reena talked to Pinkvilla and broke her silence on the entire issue. She said, “I treated Kavita as my older sister. I loved and trusted her. She and I were very close. I never thought she could do this to me. It was heartbreaking.”

The whole issue emerged after an old interview of Kavita blaming Shilpa for her failed marriage with Raj surfaced on social media. The interview went viral after which Raj spoke to the media and said that his first wife had an affair with his brother-in-law and that’s the reason they had a divorce. He said that his sister Reena and her then-husband Vansh came to live with him and Kavita in London and that’s when Vansh and Kavita grew closer. Raj added that after knowing about their closeness, his sister Reena went back to India but Vansh stayed and remained close to Kavita. However, it was after Raj read her text messages with Vansh that he decided to end his marriage. Their newborn daughter was 40 days old at that time.

Later, Kavita talked to the media and alleged that Shilpa was responsible for his broken marriage with Raj. Defending his wife now, he said that he decided to stay mum at that time because while Kavita was speaking to the media, his sister Reena was still trying to save her marriage with Vansh.

Raj also believes that Kavita and Vansh are still together. He said, “I heard she had set up a construction company in the UK with Vansh. I saw their names recently as directors I wish them all the best together.” While Shilpa didn’t release any official statement on the whole issue, she wrote a cryptic post on social media talking about the one who is wronged.

Sushant Singh Rajput’s Death Anniversary: Government Plans National Award Named After SSR

On Sushant Singh Rajput’s first death anniversary, fans have been paying tribute to the star and have been sharing emotional posts. Sushant’s untimely death on June 14 in Mumbai left the whole nation in shock. Today, while we all are celebrating his work, there is good news for all the fans and friends of Sushant Singh Rajput! As per the sources, there are plans in place to have the late actor’s name permanently inscribed in prestigious awards – National Film Award. A highly-placed source in the government informs Spotboye, “Yes, they are planning to instate a National film award named after Sushant Singh Rajput. The proposal has been put forth. But then as we all know bureaucracy and politics are slow movers. It’s taking time to push the idea forward. But we will get there, I am sure.”

The National Film Award is one of the most prestigious awards given at an award ceremony in India. The award has been administered, along with the International Film Festival of India and the Indian Panorama, by the Indian government’s Directorate of Film Festivals since 1973. The National Award is presented by the President of India every year in Delhi.

Sushant Singh Rajput’s death has left a void for all his fans and prayed that the late actor finds peace. Sushant passed away on June 14, 2020, and his autopsy reports confirmed that he died due to asphyxia by hanging.

And now, after a year, neither the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), the Enforcement Directorate (ED), nor the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) knows what happened.

SSR’s death was not the only thing to be probed, but also the drug angle, alleged misuse or diversion of his money by Rhea Chakraborty, and her family members. Recently, NCB arrested Sushant’s friend and flatmate Siddharth Pithani.

We pray for Sushant Singh Rajput. May his soul rest in peace!

‘Sushant Singh Rajput Was Murdered,’ Writes Shekhar Suman on Actor’s First Death Anniversary

Remembering Sushant Singh Rajput: On Sushant Singh Rajput’s first death anniversary, actor Shekhar Suman took to Twitter to talk about something that he has been standing up for a year. The veteran actor believes that Sushant didn’t die by suicide but was murdered and that’s what he mentioned in his tweet on the morning of June 14, 2021, Monday.

Demanding justice for the late actor, Shekhar tweeted to allege that Sushant’s ‘culprits’ are roaming free and the authorities should do something to restore the public’s faith. “It’s my firm belief that SSR was murdered brutally and did not commit suicide.And if that’s the case why are the culprits roaming around scot free?why justice is being delayed?why there is no closure???and many more unanswered questions.we need all d answers (sic),” he wrote.

In another tweet, Shekhar Suman remembered Sushant for being ‘extremely talented’. He alleged that the actor died of ‘pressures’ of establishment and relationship. His tweet read: “Remembering v v fondly Sushant Singh Rajput one amongst us yet one above us.A courageous and an extremely talented loving caring man who succumbed to the pressures and norms of the society establishment and relationships.
We all miss you.❤
#JusticeForSSR (sic)”

Sushant died on June 14. He was found hanging to the ceiling fan of his apartment in Mumbai’s Bandra area. While the Mumbai Police called it a case of suicide in its preliminary investigation, Sushant’s family filed a separate case in Bihar against Rhea Chakraborty (Sushant’s girlfriend at the time of his death) and a few others alleging abetment to suicide. The case is still being investigated by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), while a separate drug case linked to the SSR death case is being probed by the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB). Nothing concrete has emerged in any of the investigations so far.

Shekhar Suman, Kangana Ranaut, and many other Bollywood personalities have been alleging that Sushant didn’t take his own life but there was a conspiracy behind his death. No agency has found anything that can justify these claims yet. However, the probe is still on.

May he rest in peace!
