RD, R and I watched this episode of Jhalak Dikhla Jaa on Saturday night..the one in which Farah Khan and Boman Irani came.
As usual, let me state, I hardly watch TV. This was a one off thing I saw, mainly because I WANTED to watch instead of reading. (dont ask me why!) Often in the house, RD sits back on weekends watching TV while R and I are in snoozeland..mainly because I spend my time catching up on the lost sleep of the weekend…anyways midst hot awesome aloo parathas we watched this show..
and let me add, I am a big fan of Boman Irani…I like him as a person, as a actor, just as he is 🙂
My thoughts on THAT particular episode (doesnt mean that I am fan of the show, just that I picked up some points on the episode)
Farah Khan – Karan Johar interaction – To my disbelief, I actually found them funny. I loved the way the two interacted, without any starry qualities or anything. They were just being honest and their easy comradeship made me laugh aloud
Boman Irani – They didnt give him much footage, dont know why, but he didnt seem to make an issue about it. He was cool, commented positively and he is totally adorable. Though I must admit, I AM A FAN!
Karan Johar – I have never been a fan. I am pretty neutral to him, I neither love him nor I hate him. But to my surprise, I actually liked him in that episode. Ready to make fun of himself, giving the right comments, and all the fun with Farah Khan, I ended up liking him 🙂
Madhuri Dixit – I think she is gorgeous. Totally gorgeous. Yaa it may be due to make up or whatever, but the way she conducts herself, the way she smiles, the way she gives comments, I think I really like her.
Fernandes D’Souza (ETA – sorry I got the name wrong, the Remo Fernandes is a famous singer of the yesteryears?, this guy is a choreographer) – I like this guy. I liked him even when he used to judge DID, which I used to watch occasionally. I think he gives real comments, gives honest marks and is superb as far as technical parts of the dance is concerned. I admire him definitely as a dancer.
On the judging – All the judges may have their favorites, but all in all, they were very nice about everyone. Some of the shows I have watched on ASia net, or even on Star,judges have been DOWNRIGHT RUDE!!! and I hate it…I remember in some show that my MIL watches on Asianet, I used to find only Usha Uthup who used to be really sweet, the rest of the judges were so rude. I mean boss, just because you are superb singers, dont be rude na..you can tell across your point politely right?
Well, RD tells me (He is my TV guru eh?) the rudeness increases TRP…seriously? I mean, I used to find it embarrassing and wanting to change channels when someone is rude to someone on TV, but apparently most Indian junta love the drama *rolls eyes*
anyways, on this particular episode, I found all the judges really really nice and giving even the technically incorrect parts being told very polite…I really liked that
Bharati Singh – I had never heard about her. RD tells me she is a stand up comedian. I had an issue when they made an ‘issue’ about her weight and had people interviewed on how they admire her and if she can dance so can anyone etc etc. Then I was like, well, she is a positive person. She is inspiring other people to dance. So thats one good thing. Though I must admit, all the talk and making fun of her weight, did leave a distaste in my mouth. Again, she was absolutely cool about it. She poked fun of herself and I admire a person who can take such ribbing positively. I would have been offended. and oh! she dances really really good!!
Isha Sharvani – What the hell is that girl doing in the contest. SHE IS A DANCER Boss! by profession!!!! how could the other contestants agree to compete with her?? but again like RD tells me, if I get paid a crore, I will dance even with Mrinalini Sarabhai..ah well!
Ravi Kishen – He is a very very famous Bhojpuri star and as per RD, he is as rich as Amitabh Bachchan, if not more…He got kicked out in the episode and he was really humble you know. I was pretty astonished by his behaviour. Of course, it may all be an act, but whatever, for someone so popular in Bhojpuri cinema, I thought he showed as if he had his head screwed right!
Why am I writing this? Well I dont know. Guess, just like that! Felt like recording an episode of dancing eh?
