Bigg Boss 14: Mahira Sharma Says Housemates Are Copying Past Contestants Which Is the Reason Why They Can’t Establish Connection with the Audience

Actress and Bigg Boss 13 contestant Mahira Sharma feels contestants of the ongoing season 14 of the controversial reality show lack originality and have not been able to establish connection with the audience. “The previous seasons of ‘Bigg Boss’ were good but our season (season 13) was one of the biggest hits. We didn’t copy anyone in the show. This season, people are copying contestants of previous seasons. Bigg Boss 14: Mahira Sharma Calls Out Paras Chhabra’s Ex and BB14 Contestant Pavitra Punia, Claims She Was Three-Timing Paras

When you start copying someone, people don’t enjoy the show. When you do original things — whether it is a fight, romance or a friendship — the audience connects with you. Otherwise, it doesn’t look good on screen,” Mahira told IANS. “I don’t think any season will be able to scale the popularity of the 13th season of ‘Bigg Boss’ because it had a unique concept and good contestants. When contestants of the show start showing their true personality, the show will do well,” she added. Bigg Boss 14: Paras Chhabra Lashes Out At Pavitra Punia, Promises ‘I Have a Lot of Things to Tell and It Will Happen Once I Am Back on the Show’

To boost prospects of the current season, the makers have incorporated three popular past season contestants — Sidharth Shukla, Gauahar Khan and Hina Khan — as Toofani Seniors, whose job is to mentor the season 14 housemates. In fact, most of the big moments on season 14 so far have happened due to Sidharth’s manipulations.

The Best Short Film award went to the Iranian film “Better Than Neil Armstrong”, while “Baitullah” was adjudged Best Film With A Social Cause. The three-day event included personalities like Luke Mendes, Brahmanand Singh, Sushant Singh, Danish Renzu, Tanuja Chandra, Saleel Shriniwas Kulkarni, Mikhil Musale and Swanand Kirkire. Several topics like drug use, the mafia, Bollywood as judged by the media, and the future of Indian cinema in the Covid era, were discussed. The Lifetime Achievement Award was accorded to the late Om Puri, and received by his wife Nandita Puri. Another highlight of the festival was a conversation with chef Vikas Khanna, recipient of the “Pride of India Award”. Om Puri Birth Anniversary: From Tamas To Kakaji Kahin – Five Shows Of The Actor That Made Television A Better Place

The film festival, based in Boston, USA, was held virtually this year, from October 16 to 18. “I was very nervous at the start but then eventually we felt comfortable. It was very different and sometimes difficult, doing a virtual film festival, but it was a new way to learn,” said IIFFB founder and festival director Razia Mashkoor. Talking about the festival, judge Rohit Chandra said: “Although our annual film festival is typically in person, the virtual format allowed us to organise several Zoom panels, bringing together Bollywood icons and film lovers alike to debate salient film-related topics. The virtual format also allowed the viewer to enjoy IIFFB’s film selections from the comfort of their own homes.”

To this, another judge Suraja Menon Roy Chowdhury shared: “The breadth of creativity displayed, as well as the topics showcased in the submissions was impressive. With film entries from 11 countries, we were able to glimpse different cultures as well as appreciate the talent present in both independent and commercial cinema globally. This was truly an International Film Festival!” The dates for next edition of the film festival were also announced. Next year, the festival is scheduled to be held from September 24 to 26.

Bicchoo Ka Khel Trailer: Fresh Outta Mirzapur, Divyenddu Sharma Digs Into UP Flavour Again (Watch Video)

Bicchoo Ka Khel Trailer: Fresh Outta Mirzapur, Divyenddu Sharma Digs Into UP Flavour Again (Watch Video)

AltBalaji has released the trailer for the upcoming series, Bicchoo Ka Khel. Fresh out of Mirzapur, Divyenndu Sharma stars in this one as yet another character with the flavour of UP. The trailer doesn’t reveal the plot, but a murder mystery drives the narrative. While it may sound grim and serious, the treatment of the trailer is anything but. There are ’90s songs galore as background music. “Saat Samundar Paar” plays at an important juncture, giving the footage the necessary pump. Mirzapur 2: Munna Bhaiya Rap Song Featuring Divyendu Sharma Is Dripping With Desi Swagger (Watch Video).

There is quirky comedy peppered all over the trailer. Smartass comebacks, witty dialogues and characters being funnily obnoxious – this might remind you of Wassepur series. But, Bicchoo Ka Khel looks more jovial than the Anurag Kashyap films.

The toughest thing will be for fans of Divyenddu from Mirzapur. They’ll have to somehow look at him in a completely different light despite having similar shades in the character. Let us see if Divyenddu is a strong enough actor to convince viewers. Mum Bhai Trailer: Angad Bedi’s Crime Series on ALTBalaji Looks Gripping (Watch Video).

Bicchoo Ka Khel streams from December 18 on AltBalaji and Zee5. Anshul Chauhan, Zeishan Quadri, Mukul Chadda, Rajesh Sharma, Satyajit Sharma, and Gagan Anand also star in the series.

Talking about the series, Divyenddu has said, “I am really excited about the series as I got to play a character which I was looking for a long time. My character Akhil is an intelligent youth who is a fan of pulp fiction. The trailer is fast-paced and turned out to be really well crafted. The story and characters are nicely written, that it reflects in our performance on screen. I am really looking forward to the response of the viewers and fans who have always loved the characters which I have portrayed.”
