Entries and exits
#MTV Kaisi Yeh Yaariyan has been going through tons of ups and downs. It all started with Parth Samthaan making a sudden exit from the show. But the actor has returned for season 2 and soon there was news of actor Yuvraj Thakur leaving the show. Another one gets added to the list and this time its Utkarsh Gupta, who plays Dhruv in the show! Reports suggest that the actor left the series has his character didn't have much to contribute to the show and wasn't seeing any growth. "“Every beginning has an end but it doesn’t mean it’s the end of life , life goes on and yaariaan will be one of the most beautiful memory of my life . Will miss everyone God bless all," wrote Utkarsh on Twitter.
# BollywoodLife exclusively informed its readers that Bigg Boss 9 contestant Keith Sequeira has quit the show midway. Reason? Our source informed us that Keith had to leave the show has he had a family emergency to attend. We also informed our readers that Keith's exit could also have something to do with the fact that his ex-wife Samyukta Singh has stated in an interview that she had been receiving threatening calls, related to Keith being in the show.
# There was buzz that actress Mrunal Thakur has quit Kumkum Bhagya and is currently serving her notice period. Speculations were doing the rounds that Mrunal has called it quits due to her fallout with Balaji, woing to her less screen time in the show. But in an exclusive chat with BollywoodLife, the actress rubbished all rumours." ”Please don’t quote me saying that Balaji didn’t allow me. It is actually not true. And there are these stupid articles coming up. No such thing happened. So it’s better not to make an issue out of this as I share a very good rapport with Balaji.”
Actress Ankita Sharma who is seen in ZEE TV's show Lajwanti, was recently in the news for having burnt herself. It so happened that whlile shooting for a riot sequence in the show, Ankita sported a velvet salwar suit, which caused her discomfort and as a result, she got rashes all over her body and even got burns on her shoulder, due to the heat from the fire. The actress was advised to use a body double during the sequence but she was against it as she believed, it won't look authentic.
#Karan Wahi made headlines, after lashing out at Colors TV, on Twitter. Colors TV’s Bigg Boss 9 is not only one of the most boring seasons so far but mindless as well. It’s pretty evident that the makers of this show have hit a new low and are ready to stoop to any level, in order to rake in TRP’s. Thankfully, Karan Wahi pointed out the same and said what needed to heard. The actor took to Twitter and took off on Colors TV and Bigg Boss 9, calling the show disgraceful for making contestants do tasks that were vile and bizarre. For those unaware, one of the episodes of Bigg Boss 9 followed a format where the house was made into a hotel. Mandana Karimi and wild card contestant Rishabh Sinha were treated as guests and the rest had to be the servants. Rishabh played a nasty game and asked the inmates to do unimaginable tasks for him. He threw a bone and asked Kishwer Merchantt to fetch it like a dog and bring it back to him, which she did. And Kishwer gave it back to Rishabh by spitting in his glass. Karan took to Twitter and wrote," "happn to watch bigboss tonite...i feeel its a disgrace colors to actually keep people who treat othrs the way this rishav guy has..sad day."
Neil Nitin Mukesh was trolled big time on Twitter for having said that he has been offered a part in HBO's hit series Game Of Thrones.As we all know, the actor is all set to be seen as the villain in Salman Khan’s Prem Ratan Dhan Payo. BollywoodLife informed its readers that in an interview with a daily, the actor claimed that he has been offered a role in GOT. “Greg Powell has directed two sword-fighting sequences in PRDP for which I had to train for over a month in order to get the stance and wrist movements right. He seemed pretty impressed with all the hard work I put in and made the offer when we were shooting for the climax scene a few months ago," revealed Neil while talking to a popular daily.
#BollywoodLife exclusively informed its readers that the voting system in Bigg Boss 9 is rigged big time. And shockingly, it's not only the channel that decides whom to keep and evict but our exclusive source told us that host Salman Khan has a say in it as well! Though the votes are taken into consideration, the makers as well as Salman have a discussion and evaluate each contestant's performance. Based on that, they decided whom to keep and evict. It all depends on which contestant is getting more TRP's for the show. Shocking right?
# Love is in the air for Thapki Pyaar Ki's Ankit Bathla and Jigyasa Singh. BollywoodLife informed its readers that this couple is the latest one to join the lovers club and reportedly, Jigyasa, who plays Thapki in the show, threw a surprise birthday bash for beau and we hear that Ankit, is completely smitten by her as well. Aww we love it!
# Even though Bipasha Basu and Karan Singh Grover don’t want to admit they are in a relationship, the same is pretty evident. Let’s just say that if at all they are trying to hide it, they aren’t doing a very good job! Bips was recently spotted on the sets of KSG’s upcoming film 3 Dev, for which he is shooting in Gujarat. The actress paid a visit to him on the sets and was seen spending time with her beau. How cute is that?
# Salman Khan is on a roll. The actor will be seen promoting his upcoming film Prem Ratan Dhan Payo on TV shows Swaragini, Kumkum Bhagya and Sasural Simar Ka! In Swaragini, the actor will help Swara choose between Lakshya and Sanskaar. In Kumkum Bhagya, the superstar will be seen mending things between Abhi and Pragya and for Sasural Simar Ka, he will be seen rescuing Simar and the rest of the women from Bharadwaj family when they fall into some trouble with the goons.
# In Yeh Hai Mohabbatein, the horror track continues. Ishita(Divyanka Tripathi) is possessed with Shagun(Anita Hassanandani's) soul and what's waiting to be seen is when Shagun will quit Ishita's body for good. Further, Ashok and Shagun seem to have planned something in the past against the Bhallas, that needs to be executed soon. What exactly is this plane? We will have to wait and watch!
# In Kaisi Yeh Yaariyan, Manik is back and Aryaman is not too happy with the actor's return. He feels left out from the group.Another major and pretty evident reason for him feeling this way is Nandini’s(Niti Taylor) attention towards her long lost and now returned lover boy Manik. Though Aryaman hasn’t confessed his feelings to Nandini, it’s pretty obvious that he has a soft corner for her and isn’t liking the fact that Manik gets her all to himself now.
