It was one helluva eventful week in the world of TV. From gossip items to news items, the fraternity kept us on our toes. We heard the news of two hit shows, Shriman Shrimati and Kasautii Zindagi Kay coming back on the tube. There was also the gossip of Divyanka Tripathi Dahiya being in the family way. The biggest newsmakers were Shilpa Shinde and Kapil Sharma. Read on…
Kasautii Zindagii Kay Reboot
Ekta Kapoor just announced that her most successful romantic series, Kasautii Zindagii Kay will comeback with a second season. The show ran for nine years on Star Plus and we still remember Urvashi Dholakia as Komolika and Ronit Roy as Rishabh Bajaj. It told the tumultuous love story of Prerna (Shweta Tiwari) and Anurag (Cezanne Khan). The lady wrote that she conceptualised Kasautii after a broken heart and she is back with the love story. We are waiting for the announcement soon.
Rumours floated around that the Yeh Hai Mohabbatein actress was in the family way. However, husband Vivek Dahiya dismissed the pregnancy news saying that a baby was not on their mind. He told Hindustan Times, “These are just rumours. We’re not planning a family already. There are a lot of milestones that need to be achieved. We just want to be ready, I don’t think we’re ready right now. The news came out that Divyanka was part of the Forbes list (2017 Forbes India Celebrity 100) and we were really happy about it. We aim to go higher. So, there’s a lot of motivation to keep pushing ourselves forward and achieve more. There’s a lot on our plate. I have things planned for myself career-wise.”
Kaisi Yeh Yaariaan 3
Parth Samthaan and Niti Taylor took to social media to announce that the shoot of Kaisi Yeh Yaariaan 3 has started. It began on Valentine’s Day. The show will be airing on the digital platform, Voot. Charlie Chauhan and Meherzan Mazda are also part of the show. Kaisi Yeh Yaariaan 3 is an extension of the cult Youth series on MTV. It is being produced by BBC Worldwide.
Dipika Kakar and Shoaib Ibrahim
A story floated around that Dipika Kakar and Shoaib Ibrahim are getting married by the month end. Speculations are that the couple only need a venue now. Shoaib shared a snap of them at a bridal clothing store on Valentine’s Day. This has further fueled the speculations.
Well, it became final that the name of Kapil Sharma’s new show is Family Time with Kapil Sharma. The comedian shared the name on Instagram. While there is buzz that it is inspired by The Hollywood Squares, sources have denied the news. The show is expected to go on air from March end.
News came forth that Shilpa Shinde has withdrawn the sexual harassment case against Bhabhi Ji Ghar Par Hain producer, Sanjay Kohli. It seems they reached an out of court truce and he also paid off all her pending dues. In a statement to Bollywood Life, she said, “See, this happened before Bigg Boss 11. A lot of people who know the producers and me said, ‘Shilpa, let’s finish this. We are there for you.’ It was like this is a small industry and so on. People knew that I was wronged but no one came forward initially due to their unity. If they did, this would not have happened. Initially, they did not pay me. Later, I got all my pending dues. So, I was like khatam karna hai, khatam karo… Kisko sooli par chadhana hai.”
