Priyanka Chandel unhappy with her character progression in &tv’s Meri Hanikarak Biwi

Mumbai, 30 Jnauary 2018: The cast and the concept both walk hand in hand for a show to become successful, but it seems that &tv’s shows are not reaching the set mark and are facing a downfall in TRPs and audience review. The much-hyped Meri Hanikarak Biwi that was launched on &tv seems to have lost its storyline and the casts seems unhappy with the same.

A Full House Media Production, Meri Hanikarak Biwi, based on a storyline around vasectomy – an out-of–the-box concept, is facing issues with the cast as the parallel lead playing Roshni seems displeased with the way her role is progressing.

A little flying birdie whispered in our ears and shared that MTV Splistvilla 6 fame Priyanka Chandel who is playing the role of Roshni in the show is not happy with the way her role is shaping up.

businessvoip got in touch with this beauty to which she shares, “I was cast in for a parallel lead and the storyline in the beginning was great but now the story is somehow going haywire.” The actress further adds, “The briefing that was given to me and what we are shooting now seems like a world apart and I am somehow not liking the character.”

Does that mean that the makers will have to change the storyline to get better reviews from the audience and bring more exciting twists in Priyanka Chandel’s role or will the actor be quitting the show soon?

Uzair Basar aka Ganesh removed from Vighnaharta Ganesha for shocking reasons

Mumbai, 30 January 2018: The quandary of the television industry is something that we all know by now. The uncertainty of the tantalizing world is such that one day someone is part of a show and the other day they are no more. Recently, popular actors Sana Amin Sheikh and Kinshuk Mahajan were asked to exit their daily soap overnight.

While the buzz around them didn’t cease, businessvoip has yet another shocking piece of news from the sets of Sony TV’s Vighnaharta Ganesha (Contiloe Productions).

From what we’ve heard, the mythological drama’s lead actor Uzair Basar, who essays Ganesh, on whom the whole show is based, is no more a part of it. Reason?

Well, the production house has stopped calling Uzair for the shoots. As per our informant, the makers are going through the process of cost-cutting. Vignaharta Ganesha is a heavy budget show and with the use of motion capture camera technology, Uzair’s face is anyway not visible on the screens. Furthermore, his voice is dubbed since the inception of the show; so there was no requirement of the child actor as such. The makers hence arrived at a decision to replace him with a junior artist.

“A junior artist’s budget is not even close to Uzair’s. To save the cost, they want to excise him and keep all of it concealed,” a source explained.

Apparently the problems arose, when a new HOP named Abhishek S. joined the team. According to Uzair’s contract, he has an exclusive bond with the channel and his dates were blocked for the whole month. From a few months, he was only called for three to four days of shoot.

Seemingly, it’s been a month or two that the child has been abruptly shooting and in his absence, the team has been shooting with duplicates and junior artists, saving good amount of money. An eye-witness also revealed to us that in one of the heated arguments with Uzair’s father, the HOP went ahead to say that they “don’t require Uzair.”

All of this is happening from the month of October.

As per the grapevine, Uzair’s father Nadeem Basar has gone to CINTAA. “Though it was not a complaint, his father wanted a clear picture and asked the officials at CINTAA for guidance,” a source revealed.

Nothing was officially conveyed to Uzair’s father but as per whispers, the things have been put on paper. “The team has officially informed the parents that they are discontinuing with Uzair and that he is no more a part of the daily series,” a credible source revealed.

To understand the whole story we contacted Uzair’s father Nadeem. After hearing us he reverted, “I haven’t been informed anything officially so I can’t comment as of now.”

The cost cutting process is not just limited to Uzair, but has affected other actors as well. According to our intelligence, Akanksha Puri who plays Parvati, Malkhan Singh who plays Shiva and Basant Bhat who plays Kartikeya, are also doing through a similar problem.

“They are bonded exclusively with the channel; however their shoot dates are reduced to just 10 days. The actors’ dates are wasted as they can’t work anywhere else,” an insider revealed.

We couldn’t get in touch with Abhimanyu Singh, the head honcho of the production firm.

CID creates history; completes 20 years!

Mumbai, 27 January 2018: History has been made! Indian television’s long-running cop based show, CID, produced by Fireworks Productions on Sony Entertainment Television completes 20 years today (27 January).

Generations have literally grown watching these idols on screen! That’s the kind of impact that CID has been creating for years and this achievement cannot be replicated in television so easily!!

Started in the early 90’s it is a proud moment for the Producer B.P Singh and the entire cast and crew of the show who have been associated with the show since its inception and continue to do so.

Amongst the characters of team CID, Daya (Dayanand Shetty) has been seen slapping criminals for 20 years now and every time, the slap is enough to force a confession. And how can one forget when ACP Pradyuman tells Daya – “Daya, darvaza tod do” which is more famous than the show itself!

In rendezvous with Dayanand, he joyfully averred, “It has been 20 years and there is no show in the world to have marked such an inning with an intact core team. We are fortunate and now when I think of it, everything fell into place…I think this was destined! This happens once in a lifetime. We are working together from 1998 and it is not always that such a thing happens.”

The man tallying his actions with Daya and sharing quite a chemistry is ACP Pradyuman played by Shivaji Satnam. It is only after his dialogue – “Kuch toh gadbad hai Daya” that the story is tweaked much to the audience’s visual delight!

A proud and elated Shivaji shared, “It is a huge achievement! It is a rare accomplishment and we are blessed. We have completed 20 years and we are still batting…standing at the crease more confidently than before. No show can sustain if the characters aren’t loved and it is only because of the people who watch us that we would attain this feat of completing 20 years! Sometimes I feel that God also must be watching CID else it wouldn’t be possible to reach where we are today.”

Nayana Bandyopadhyay feels blessed to portray challenging characters

Kolkata, 25 January 2018: Actress Nayana Bandyopadhyay feels blessed that she got the opportunity of portraying challenging and wonderful characters.

Nayana is currently portraying the role of Maya in Zee Bangla’s fantasy drama Saat Bhai Champa. She will soon be seen in the role of Devi Jaya in Colors Bangla’s upcoming mythological soap Manasha, which will start from 29 January.

Describing the characteristic traits of both the roles, she said to businessvoip, “The characters I’m playing right now are of Rani Maya in Saat Bhai Champa and Devi Jaya in Manasha. The characters are absolutely contrast to each other. While the former is a fantasy character, grayish in nature, controlled by love for her king the latter is a mythological character who is made by Devi Durga and is a part of her, pure of heart and soul, she is a completely positive character aiding in creation of life, love and all beings.”

As both the roles are completely different from each other we asked how difficult or easy is to be part of two different serials to which she answered, “I love portraying both the roles. Both have challenges of their own and I simply get overjoyed when I conquer those challenges, however easy or hard they are.”

“Finally I thank God wholeheartedly for being so generous and showering me with so much love and giving me challenging and wonderful characters to portray!”

Check out the following photos of the actress:
