'Acting with one's wife even more exciting'

TV actor Hiten Tejwani is joining the cast of Meri Aashiqui Tumse Hi, which stars his wife and actress Gauri Pradhan Tejwani. He is "excited" to work with his real life partner in the show.

Hiten and Gauri were the leading pair in Kutumb, which went on air in 2001, and after many years, they are sharing the screen space once again.

"Any role for an actor is exciting, but acting with your (one's) wife is even more exciting. We'll be spending more time on the sets now. Earlier, we used to shoot on different locations, now we'll get to spend more time together," Hiten told IANS by phone from Mumbai.

When asked how the experience of Meri Aashiqui Tumse Hi will be different from Kutumb, the actor said: "Well, the characters are different. Also, when we were shooting 'Kutumb', we weren't married. But now we're married."

"When you are performing opposite to your wife, the comfort level is very high from the beginning. With other co-actors, it takes a little while to reach a certain comfort level."

The couple tied the knot in 2004 and welcomed twins, son Neevan and daughter Katya, in 2009.

Gauri had previously mentioned that she would like to work with her husband when she joined Meri Aashiqui Tumse Hi, and now that her wish has come true, she is pretty excited too.

Although Hiten and Gauri's five-year-old twins aren't allowed to watch TV, the actor is willing to bend the rules for this show.

On being asked how his children would react on seeing them together on the screen, he said: "They will be happy to see us together. Actually, they are not allowed to watch TV as of now, but we will let them see a scene or two where we are together."

Although Hiten's schedule is busy with Meri Aashiqui Tumse Hi, the actor is willing to take up new projects.

"I'll be busy with 'Meri Aashiqui Tumse Hi', but let's see what happens. Talks are going on. If something really nice turns up and I have time, then I'll do it," he said.

Independence: Sonam Kapoor is the Kapoor girl, but she is an independent and confident girl. In an interview with TOI, Sonam said, " "I only worked for past few years. I don't do too many things at the same time. I do very classy things as suppose to 'mass-y' things in life. Last nine years, I am working and didn't take a rupee from my father. To maintain my lifestyle I couldn't take holiday in past few years. First time I made enough money to take holiday and have saved for a vacation," added the Kapoor daughter. The Kapoor girl revealed that her father Anil Kapoor gives more importance to her career than her relationships. " My dad is cool and chilled out. He doesn't think it's important to marry early. For my dad it's about my career as he knows how important it is for me. He wants me to be a better actor and a better person and make great films. That's his ambition for me. When it comes to relationships it's all secondary. He doesn't pay much importance to it which is how I think parents in India should be. Parents should think about your growth as professional career rather than who are you going to get married to," said the actress.

On being asked about the changing situation of women in the industry, Sonam said, "I hope the condition of women changes in India. Bollywood is different. For me films are the reflection of what society is. The society needs to change and then films will change. Films and art don't dictate society, they reflect society. I am trying very hard in terms of small things, the way I conduct myself and talk to people. There are lot of heroines, who are prim and proper and are diplomatic. They don't want to give opinions and don't want to speak about anyone. In many ways, we are setting a wrong example for the girls and that's not a cool thing to do. The society should change," added Sonam.

Shahrukh Khan does not read reviews

Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan has confessed he stays away from reading film reviews and catches them only if they are funny.

"I don't read reviews (not taking away from the importance of reviews)," SRK told mediapersons here Wednesday.

"I have a sense of humour and most of the time my sense of humour is about how I can make fun of myself, about 70 percent of the time, and 30 percent of the time it is about making fun of others.

"But they take it very, very, seriously so I stopped doing it," he added

SRK was in town to celebrate the success of his latest release "Happy New Year."

"So, I do it just about myself and if it's a review I try and catch it only if it's funny. If it's serious about how filmmaking should be, I am really serious about filmmaking, so I don't really want to get into that," he said.

The Farah Khan-directed "Happy New Year", which released Oct 24, is yielding profits at the box office - it crossed Rs. 100 crore in the opening weekend itself. Produced by Shah Rukh's Red Chillies Entertainments Pvt. Ltd. (RCE), the film raked in Rs.108.86 crore.

Bigg Boss 8: Praneet says Gautam is negative

No battle plan survives contact with the enemy. Taking this thought forward the unpredictable house of Bigg Boss started a brand new morning with a classic 80's number, 'AajNaChodungaTujhe' which set the tone for the day.

During the day, Bigg Boss announced new captaincy elections and asked the housemates to volunteer their names with legitimate reasons.

Gautam was the first one to volunteer, hence becoming the first contender to compete in the race to become the next captain of the house. Other housemates had to then decide on one contender who will stand up against Gautam. Upen was selected with group consensus.

Race for Captaincy task named, "Aaj Na Chodunga Tujhe" is launched with Upen and Gautam competing against each other. The task required both the contenders to choose two partners of their choice who will support them in the task. Upen selects Aarya and Ali while Gautam selects Puneet and Pritam. On the battle ground, both Upen and Gautam are supposed to hold one black pole each, given to them, while the selected partners would try to detach the opposite contender from the pole and drag him towards the given white line. The person who will be dragged towards the white line first, will lose.

Before the task starts, Diandra, Praneet and Karishma were seen trying to manipulate Pritam so that he supports Upen's team. When Pritam asks Praneet as to what he should do, Praneet tells him that he knows Gautam is negative.

During the task, it takes Ali and Aarya just a few seconds to drag Gautam to the white line. Puneet is nervous to use his physical strength due to his previous tiff where he had hurt Gautam physically. As a result Upen wins the task and is announced as the new captain of the house.

A back stabbed Gautam is seen talking to himself post the task as to how Puneet could have done better but due to his fear of using his strength he did not perform well, little knowing that Puneet did what he did deliberately. Puneet is later seen telling his co-contestants that he did not play loyally with Gautam as he wanted Upen to become the captain.

Gautam is later seen confronting Puneet and Pritam about what had happened during the task. Puneet admits to Gautam that he could have done better but he didn't and therefore is guilty about it, smoothly getting away with the betrayal.

Upen then gathers all the housemates in the living area to discuss and reshuffle the house duties for the coming week letting people volunteer themselves as to what they will be comfortable doing, promising a peaceful and happy week ahead.

Will Upen be able to lead the housemates appropriately or no? Only time will tell.
