Parineeti Chopra wants to romance Shaan (TV Snippets)
Actress Parineeti Chopra recently visited the sets of celebrity dance reality show “Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 6” and was so impressed with singer Shaan’s performance that she expressed the desire to romance him on the big screen.
The actress, who was here with her “Shuddh Desi Romance” co-star Sushant Singh Rajput to promote the film, enjoyed Shaan’s performance on the song “Ae kya bolti tu”. It’ll be aired Sunday on Colors.
“Singer toh tum ho hi, dancer ab ban gaye ho aur is act mein toh tapori ki acting bhi karli (You are already a singer, now you have become a dancer, and in this performance you have even acted). I’m going to romance you in the sequel of ‘Shuddh Desi Romance’ now,” Parineeti said.
To which, Shaan, who was dressed as a tapori, said: “Oh that’s so kind… I thought mujhe chacha ka role milega (I thought I will get the role of an uncle).”
“Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 6”, a weekend show, sees actress Madhuri Dixit, choreographer Remo D’Souza and filmmaker Karan Johar in the judges’ panel.
Praneet Bhatt calls Shakuni ‘a true hero’
Small screen actor Praneet Bhatt, who essays Shakuni in the upcoming mythological saga “Mahabharat”, describes Shakuni as a true hero.
“I’m really fortunate to play Shakuni. He is one character other than Krishna and Bhishma, who fought for other’s cause… He is a true hero who had an unconditional love for his sister (Gandhari), which led to the story of ‘Mahabharat’,” Praneet said in a statement.
“He went against his father, mother and the entire world just for his sister and, in my view, he’s neither totally negative nor positive,” he added.
The Star Plus show will start Sep 16.
Whent Sushant went gaga over Madhuri
He may have earned a huge fan following after his stint in “Kai Po Che!” but Sushant Singh Rajput, who has made a successful transition from the small screen to the big screen, is a great fan of Madhuri Dixit and went out of his way to express his fondness for the screen diva.
Sushant shared his feelings while promoting his forthcoming film “Shuddh Desi Romance” on the Colors channel’s celebrity dance reality show “Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 6”, which Madhuri is co-judging with filmmaker Karan Johar and choreographer-cum-filmmaker Remo D’Souza.
He said he bows in front of three women and Madhuri is one them.
“Mera sar sirf teen auraton ke saamne jhookta hai… Ek hai Devi Maa (goddess), ek meri apni maa aur ek Maa-Dhuri ke saamne (I bow my head only in front of three women… One is the goddess, one is my mother, and last one is Madhuri),” Sushant said.
He further asked the ‘Dhak-Dhak’ girl to dance with him, saying: “Maine aapke gaano pe naachna sikha hai, toh kya aap aaj mere gaane par nachogi? (I learnt dancing by jiving on your songs, so will you dance on my song today?).”
To his delight, Madhuri obliged him and his co-star Parineeti Chopra and joined them onstage.
Sushant, who had participated in season four of “Jhalak…” and had wowed Madhuri with his dancing skills, said he missed hearing her pet dialogue “purrrfect” (perfect) and asked her say it for him.
Madhuri sportingly said: “I always used to say that Sushant is so very talented and it’s ‘purrrfect’ (perfect) that he is where he is today….”
