Squeezing the star appeal

ANUJ KUMAR


"Just Dance" has just started and it seems Star Plus is going for the Hrithik Roshan overkill. The show is less about the participants but more about the star's presence in the show. During the preliminary round accomplished judges like Farah Khan and Vaibhavi Merchant are being made to say how Hrithik would have reacted if he were present here. We know Hrithik is a great dancer but his primary identity is as an actor. He dances to choreographed songs and is not reclusive with the media. He is a prize catch but not the show unto himself.

On the Rann!


"Beg, Borrow, Steal", one of the most testing reality shows on Indian television, is back and this time it will test its trusted participant Aaliyah in the treacherous terrain of Rann of Kutch. In the show titled "Extreme Condition", Aaliyah will have to conquer this desolate and arid region in order to win the challenge of covering 1,000 kms in not more than 7 days. During this journey, if she is unable to complete any particular tasks on the way, she will be faced with a penalty that will have to be performed amidst the merciless terrain. One of them being cycling uphill with two gallons of buttermilk and distributing the same to the thirsty locals! It doesn't stop at this, to make this journey even tougher, the crew will deny her access to basic survival items such as water, money, map, mobile, compass etc. that were provided for in the previous seasons. As they say one will do anything for entertainment!

Oh! lord


Mythology and historicals are back in business as producers are unearthing new stories from our rich past. After Zee showed faith in "Shobha Somnath Ki", Imagine is exploring the Krishna-Rukmini love angle in "Dwarkadheesh-Bhagwan Shri Krishna". Produced by old faithful, Sagar Pictures, Vishal Karwal, who was last seen in "Pratha", plays the role of Krishna, Priya Bhatija will be seen as Rukmini and Nikitin Dheer, the son of Pankaj Dheer, the actor best known as Karna of "Mahabharat", plays King Kalyavan, who tested the Lord's prowess.
