    Women’s Day special: Sandhya is a ‘worthy’ daughter-in-law in ‘Diya Aur Baati Hum’

    Women’s Day special: Sandhya is a ‘worthy’ daughter-in-law in ‘Diya Aur Baati Hum’

    Move over, Rajini, Shanti and Jassi. It’s time for women to live with downcast eyes, manage the household and engage in kitchen politics

    The depiction of women in Hindi TV shows has changed dramatically over the years. Sadly, it hasn’t been a positive change. For a while it seemed as if Jassi Jaisi Koi Nahin would herald the return of powerful women such as Rajini and Shanti, but Tulsi and Parvati continued to rule.

    UK film to be based on ‘KBC 5’ winner Sushil Kumar’s life

    UK film to be based on ‘KBC 5’ winner Sushil Kumar’s life

    The documentary will be based on Sushil Kumar rags-to-riches story
    Sushil Kumar, who won Rs 5 crore on Kaun Banega Croreptai 5 hosted by superstar Amitabh Bachchan, has been offered a documentary film to be produced by 2waytraffic International and Sony Television, London and directed by Chris Tarrant and Keith Strachan. The film will be shot in the UK, and – the best part – it will be based on Kumar’s story of winning the quiz show. Kumar’s is a true rags-to-riches story – he belongs to small town Motihari in Bihar, and went on to win the biggest quiz show in India. His struggle and his moment of glory will all be captured in the documentary which will most likely be shot in the UK. Kumar is understandably excited about being a part of the film and getting a chance to travel overseas, something he would not have imagined before winning the show, with his modest earnings of Rs 6,000 per month.
