Is letter ‘R’ auspicious for Shastri Sisters?

While the King Khan has made Rahul and Raj universally popular Indian names, the cast and crew of Shastri Sisters is on its way to take the ‘R’ legacy forward. Upon having consulted a guru, the production house of COLORS’ popular show Shastri Sisters, Shankutalam Productions learned that the letter ‘R’ was indeed lucky for the show.

The creative team of the show then took a unanimous decision to have the names of the male characters begin with the letter ‘R’. Since Sumit Bharadwaj had already been coined the name ‘Neel’, the creative team named the remaining three young actors Rajat (played by Vijayendra Kumeria), Rohan (played by Sujay Reu) and Rajiv (played by Sumit Verma).

#BiggBoss8 Day 8 Synopsis: Revenge of the Fallen

An eye for an eye would make the whole world blind, but Pritam’s team didn’t believe in revenge or did they? As the second day dawned for the team task ‘Hijack’, Pritam’s team was prepared to inflict the necessary pain to win the task. But not everyone in the team shared the same sentiments. Puneet Issar and Praneet Bhatt refused to use any torture techniques on the opposition team. After the drama that unfolded on the previous day, Gautam continued to suffer from mistreatment at the hands of all passengers for another day following, and it didn’t seem to end.

As Bigg Boss announced the start of the second round of the task, Karishma refused to participate in the same until Gautam was either disqualified or received punishment for his misbehavior.  After plenty of consolation and assurances from the rest of the passengers, Karishma agreed to get onto the seat along with the rest of them for their turn to bear the inflicted pain. The task started in good spirts, as Soni and Sukirti shaved the hands and legs of Aarya and waxed Upen’s thighs, while Natasa concentrated all her efforts on Karishma. But nothing could break the resolve of Karishma, Minisha, Diandra, Sushant, Aarya and Upen. Gautam succeeded a little in bringing tears to Sushant’s eyes by applying pain relief balm all over his face and came close to making him leave his seat. In spite of all their efforts, Pritam’s team could not keep up with the endeavor to force Deepshika’s team from their seats.

At the end of the day, Bigg Boss announced Deepshika’s team victorious in this task, and told them to pack their baggage and prepare to shift to the Bigg Boss house the following morning. But that was not all. Bigg Boss punished Gautam for his misbehavior by revoking his rights to nominate any passenger in this week’s nomination procedure.

Will the loss sit well with Pritam’s team? Would the passengers ever forgive Gautam or would they nominate him to be the next passenger to leave the show?

#BiggBoss8: OMG Soni & Sukirti waxed Upen's thighs and waxed Aarya's legs!!..

Bigg Boss announced the first ‘team task’ for all the inmates. All the contestants were divided in two teams, Karishma Tanna, Diandra, Minissha Lamba, Sushant Divgikar Upen Patel and Aarya Babbar were in Deepshikha Nagpal’s team where as in Preetam’s team has Sukirti Kandpal, Soni Singh, Natasa Stankovic, Puneet Isser, Praneet Bhatt and Gautam Gulati.

Yesterday Preetam’s team occupied the seats placed in the garden and Deepshika’s team tried to force them out of the seats. Now it’s time for Pritam's team to compel Deepshikha's team to leave their seats.

Gautam Gulati applied Zandu Balm over Karishma's face.  Soni Singh and Sukirti Kandpal shaved Aarya Babbar's legs and waxed Upen Patel's thighs, so that they will leave their seats and lose the task.

RV's plan to expose Chirag failed..

While we thought Ishani and Ranveer will come close, our thoughts break as Ishani breaks Ranveer's project. Soon electricity returns and Ranveer gets back to his angry self and shouts on Ishani for office property loss. He orders Rishi to add Rs 15k more to Ishani's account for the loss of property. He also sends Ishani to a hotel on the pretext of getting him his cell phone back.

Though RV feels sorry for shouting on Ishani, he wants her to know why she is sent to the hotel. At the hotel, the receptionist tells her that as RV had important details in the phone, he didn't want it leave in the reception, hence a room is booked in his name and he hands her the room key. Ishani proceeds towards his room to get back the phone. Meanwhile we see Chirag romancing the lady he had planted to flirt with RV. And guess what, Chirag is in the same room where Ishani is supposed to come.

While Chirag and the girl engage in some private moment, Ishani enters the room. But alas, she doesn't see cunning Chirag as he hides himself. Ishani takes the phone and storms out of the unkempt room. She is angry with RV for being so cheap and stooping so low after gaining success. She thinks she is lucky to have Chirag and calls him up. Soon she gets to hear a phone ring. Chirag on the other hand gets attentive seeing Ishani’s call. Ishani’s follows the phone ring and opens the door, and again she sees the secretary over the phone.

Twice, Ishani fails to notice Chirag. Ishani comes and vents out her anger on RV for sending her to view such shady thing. RV is shocked to see that his plan to expose Chirag failed.

What measure will RV take now to expose Chirag? To know more, read this space.

#BiggBoss8 Day 8 Synopsis:The Great Divide

As week 1 ended in Bigg Boss, a lot of stories unfolded. The happy family is taken by surprise as two new members of the Secret Society, Deepshikha Nagpal and Preetam Singh enter their humble abode. While none can predict the plans and schemes that Bigg Boss has in store for the passengers, we know that turbulence is about to hit this smooth sailing flight.

The anxious wait of the passengers to hear the distinguished voice of Bigg Boss came to an end as Bigg Boss addressed the passengers directly for the first time. But with sugar came the spice as Bigg Boss announced the first ‘team task’ for all the passengers. With Deepshika and Preetam as captains, the passengers were divided into two teams. Deepshika chose Karishma Tanna, Diandra, Minissha Lamba, Sushant Divgikar Upen Patel and Aarya; while Preetam chose Sukirti Kandpal, Soni Singh, Natasa Stankovic, Puneet Isser, Praneet Bhatt and Gautam Gulati.

The task at hand was ‘Hijack’, where Preetam’s team would occupy seats placed in the garden and Deepshika’s team would need to force them out of the seats. The task had no rules except for the use of physical force and the reward for the winning team would be admission in the main Bigg Boss house.

Deepshika’s team used every trick in the bag to uproot Preetam’s team from their seats. From smearing dirty brooms and mops on their heads and body to applying shaving foam, from rubbing dirty slippers and shoes on their faces to emptying washing soap on their heads. But that just seemed to be the beginning of a very long day, as Gautam, Puneet and Praneet seemed to enjoy the spirit of competition and they all stayed on their seats bearing every pain inflicting tactic of the opposition team.  Finally when they began chafing chili powder and paste on the faces and bodies of the seated passengers, was when the competitive spirit turned into hostility and antagonism. Things took an ugly turn as Gautam had an outburst of rage towards Karishma when he could not bear the chili anymore and hurled abuses towards Karishma.

What started as a task turned into an ugly feud, dividing the once positive and happy passengers into two groups pitting them against each other. In spite of the great divide, Gautam managed to become the villain of the house. By losing his mettle in midst of the task and attracting the wrath of all the members in the flight, Gautam got ostracized by all. Though he pleaded and begged for forgiveness, Karishma was clearly not in a mood to show any mercy.

The drama only awaits to intensify as role reversal will happen tomorrow where Preetam’s team will be asked to torment Deepshika’s team and compel them to leave their seats. The atmosphere in the Flight Bigg Boss 8 has only started to become malevolent. Will the members of the secret society succeed in breaching the positivity and creating rifts between the passengers?

#BiggBoss8: Sonali Raut or Natasa Stankovic who will be evicted?

Join us on Facebook 
Bigg Boss inmates nominated Gautam Gulati, Sukirti Kandpal, Sonali Raut, Natasa Stankovic for eviction. According to us Serbian model & The Xpose actress are the kamjor kadi’s ,and this week most probably either Sonali or Natasa will be evicted.

Gautam, who left Diya Aur Baati Hum for Bigg Boss has a huge fan following. He made a lot of hue and cry after first task in which he was asked to wake-up for the entire night, he can provide the desired masala and nautanki, so we think he is safe. Also his closeness and foot massage sessions to the model Diandra Soares might prove beneficial for him.

Sukriti, also has immense fan following, and is trying her best to stay in limelight.  She is a cry baby and can very well exaggerate any issue. So she has very less chance to be evicted in first week.

Sonali, who was targeted by most of the inmates might be evicted from the house of controversy thanks of her ‘selective’ attitude.

Serbian model-actress Natasa almost looks invisible most of the time. Though she is cute and adorable, yet she is getting very less screen space because of her shy nature.

Sukirti, Gautam, Natasha or Sonali, who do you think will be evicted tomorrow?

#BiggBoss8: Day 5 Synopsis-New Passengers Board Flight BB08

Day 5 of Bigg Boss 8 started with the energetic song ‘Ice Cream’ from the movie Xpose, that made everyone jump on their feet especially Sonali Raut.

But as they say a little friction has the potential of turning ugly as things have started getting really personal in Flight BB08. Praneet has started to boss over the other passengers in matters of the kitchen much to the dislike of everyone around him. Picking fights with Gautam Gulati early in the morning over kitchen matters, has made Diandra also go against Praneet Bhatt.

On the other hand, Bigg Boss tasks the Secret Society to choose a weakling amongst themselves. The members were asked to identify the weakest member of their faction who would be sent down to the Flight with the rest of the passengers. Being sent into the flight, the member becomes an ordinary passenger losing all control and immunity granted otherwise to a Secret Society member. While they completed their duties conferred upon them with 100% conviction, the group consensus was that Puneet Issar was more empathetic towards the passengers and considered renouncing the punishments and decisions. While Deepshika  Nagpal and RJ Preetam would continue to be members of the Secret Society, controlling the passengers, Puneet would now continue his journey as another member on this flight.

With lights going out and smoke covering the ground around the flight suspense gripped the passengers as Puneet Issar made a larger than life and dramatic entry on the background score ‘Rakht Charitra’. Puneet was welcomed with loud shouts and cheers as their excitement grew even more. While other passenger know of him and were eager to get to know him, Aarya  Babbar and Minissha Lamba have had the experience of knowing Puneet from before. In spite of his familiarity, the feeling of uncertainty grips Aarya as he later doubts the purpose of Puneet being sent down to travel this journey with the rest of them.

Being with the Secret Society, Puneet has been keeping an eye on the passengers, noticing their every move and action. Giving reference of Mythology, Punit Issar reffered to each passenger as a character from the Mahabharat , where Upen Patel seems like Arjun, Gautam like  Karan, Aarya on the other hand resembles Bheem. Sushant is similar to Nakul and Praneet Bhat better known as Shakuni Mama would suit better as Yudhisthir. He ends by referring to himself as  Bheeshma Pitamaha.

As the day started to dawn into night, everyone had been excited for the clock to strike 12, as Praneet would be the first passenger to celebrate his birthday this season on the flight. With high hopes Praneet made countless requests to Secret Society for his luggage and permission to share his business class goodies with his co-passengers on his birthday.  To buoy his spirits Bigg Boss echoed a message sent to him by his mother, which brought everyone down to tears, including Diandra and Soni Singh.

But all hell broke loose as his pleads were met with a harsh response when only a brownie with a candle and a new costume from of his on-screen avatar were sent to him as gifts to bring in his birthday celebrations. A disappointed Praneet couldn’t control his emotions as he refused to play by the dirty rules and decisions of the Secret Society.

Will the dejected and disheartened passengers survive the harsh obstacles that this journey reserves?

#BiggBoss8 : Day 4 Synopsis

While it has just been 3 days since the show has taken-off, the mind games and ego tussles have already started big time in the Bigg Boss house. Only a few hours post the kitchen opened up for the housemates, feelings of resentment and indifferences cropped up almost immediately. Karishma  Tanna and Soni Singh were the first ones to take to the kitchen and implemented rules to command over the rest. The highlight of the day was the nomination procedure where for the first time the true colors of the housemates surfaced. Friends took a dig at the foes. Upen Patel seemed to resent Diandra & Gautam Gulati’s budding romance while on the other hand, Aarya Babbar and Karishma Tanna have formed an alliance to have each other’s back.

While Bigg Boss has always introduced various changes in the format of the show over 8 seasons, one thing that has remained unchanged is the authority of Bigg Boss observing rules laid down for the members of the house. This season will be no different as disobedience of any rule of the house would be punishable.  Conversing in Hindi language and not sleeping during the day have been common rules to be observed over the years. When the responsibility of punishing the defaulters was put in the hands of the Secret Society, they unanimously decided to punish Sonali Raut for conversing in English and Gautam for sleeping during the day in spite of continued warnings. The defaulters were made to stand against each other’s back on the wing of flight until they were excused by the Secret Society.

As the day came to a close, the dramatic nomination process put forward by the Secret Society shocked the passengers to no end. Each passenger was asked not just to nominate two fellow passengers whose journey they would want to end this week, but also throw their photographs in a fire barrel while giving a valid reason for their nomination. But this wasn’t the end. To add to the twist, Bigg Boss informed the Secret Society to select two contestants who they would like to send for evictions as well.  With new twists being added at every step of this journey, the show has become more unpredictable than ever before.
