Show Preview: Deepika Padukone gets candid with Big B on the hot seat of ‘KBC 13’

Deepika-Padukone

The ‘Shaandaar Shukravaar’ episode of ‘Kaun Banega Crorepati 13’ on Friday will have Deepika Padukone and director-choreographer Farah Khan on the hot seat with the host of the show, Amitabh Bachchan.

Before the start of the episode, Deepika will be seen gifting Big B and Farah, her mentor, Ganpati idols. Moving ahead, Big B will be seen engaging in banter with his guests. They share personal anecdotes and then they are taken by complete surprise by Big B when he enacts Deepika’s memorable ‘Ek chutki sindoor ki keemat’ scene from the film ‘Om Shanti Om’, which was directed by Farah.

In her interaction with the host, Deepika reveals that she is a big foodie. She doesn’t just love food, but unlike other people who eat thrice in a day, she eats “every three minutes”. Deepika humorously mentions that it is because of Big B, who had emptied her lunch ‘dabba’, that she has to eat every three minutes.

Another interesting revelation Deepika will make in the show is that her husband and popular actor Ranveer Singh does not make her breakfast. Hearing this, Big B will be seen calling Ranveer to sort out this matter.

While talking about her personal experiences, Deepika recalled that in order to cast her for ‘Om Shanti Om’, Farah took her body of work to Australia to show it to Shah Rukh Khan, who was then shooting for ‘Chak De! India’. Farah had barely shown him her photo and all SRK said was, ‘Done’.

The Top 6 finalists of ‘Indian Idol Season 12’ – Pawandeep Rajan, Arunita Kanjilal, Mohd Danish, Sayli Kamble, Nihal Tauro and Shanmukha Priya – will also be performing in this star-studded special episode.

(The episode will air on September 10 at 9:00 p.m. on Sony Entertainment Television)

Debutante Sharvari will be seen as the new ‘Babli’ in the comedy ‘Bunty Aur Babli 2’. She says it is her big screen debut and has given it her all.

Sharvari said, “I was honoured that YRF could see me as the new Babli in the film. ‘Babli’ is an iconic character in the history of Indian cinema, thanks to Rani ma’am’s incredible work in the first film. I’m a big fan of her and hope that I have done justice to the role.”

The new actress is being presented in an uber-glam avatar in the film in which she has been paired opposite Siddhant Chaturvedi who plays the new ‘Bunty’.

Sharvari will imbibe all the characteristic traits of Babli — highly intelligent, sassy, always up for a great challenge, and most importantly a supremely talented con-woman. The new Babli is tech-savvy, she is a product of the digital boom and thus, supremely skilled and equipped to pull off intricate cons.

“Since my character is based in today’s times, I have tried to play it in my own way and I only hope that Rani ma’am and the audiences will love my effort. This is my big-screen debut and I have given it my all. I can’t wait to see all the responses that my performance will evoke. I’m keeping my fingers crossed,” she added.

‘Bunty Aur Babli 2’ is an out-and-out family entertainer that is set to release on November 19. The film has been directed by Varun V. Sharma.

Nawazuddin-Siddiqui

Actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui, who has been nominated in the Best Actor category at the International Emmy Awards for the Netflix film ‘Serious Men’, says for that making good content, good people are also needed.

Talking about what’s more important according to him – content of a project or who all are starring in it, Nawazuddin in a conversation with IANS said: “I think both are important.”

“A lot of content is being made but it will not come out and shine till the time the directors, actors and their performance isn’t there.”

He says if the actor or the maker are not good then there is no meaning to the content.

“No matter how good the content is, if the actor or the director is not good then there is no meaning to the content. For making a good thing, good people are needed,” he concluded.
