Zee TV announces new shows ‘Rishton Ka Manjha’, ‘Meet’

Rishton-Ka-Manjha

Hindi television channel Zee TV on Friday announced a couple of new shows for the evening slot. The shows are titled ‘Rishton Ka Manjha’ and ‘Meet’.

Starring Ashi Singh and Shagun Pandey in the lead, ‘Meet’ showcases the journey of a spirited young girl from Haryana. Not only is she the sole breadwinner for her family, but Meet also breaks gender stereotypes by working as a delivery agent.

‘Rishton Ka Manjha’ explores the intense love story of Diya and Arjun. Based in Kolkata, the show revolves around Diya, a chirpy Bengali girl who hopes to support her middle-class family and Arjun, a former badminton champ, who has given up on life after a scandal jeopardised his career. The show features Aanchal Goswami and Krushal Ahuja in the lead.

“While ‘Rishton Ka Manjha’ talks of the power of optimism and never losing sight of the light at the end of the tunnel, ‘Meet’ brings you a spirited protagonist who will shatter gender stereotypes and prove that a girl, today, is as adept, if not more, at juggling responsibilities both within and outside the house. We look forward to our audiences falling in love with these new members of the Zee TV ‘Kutumb’,” said Zee TV Business Head Aparna Bhosle.

“While there are certain shows that entertain audiences, there are some that manage to make them sit up and think about life, question their mindsets and hope to bring about a positive change over a period of time. ‘Meet’, for us, is that exceptional story, that will not only touch people’s hearts with its engaging narrative but also get them to introspect,” ‘Meet’ producers Shashi and Sumeet Mittal shared.

“Many of us go through phases of life when it doesn’t feel fair – while some throw up their hands in despair, some have the knack of spotting that silver lining. Our show captures the journey of Diya, who with her positivity will become an anchor in the life of Arjun. She will make him realise how even if life isn’t as fair as badminton, the sport they both play, there is always a solution for every problem,” said ‘Rishton Ka Manjha’ producer Susanta Das.

‘Rishton Ka Manjha’ and ‘Meet’ are set to air on Zee TV from August 23.

Beyonce announces ‘Renaissance’ stadium tour dates

Published

By

Singer Beyonce has announced a 2023 world tour on Instagram, supporting her multiple-Grammy-nominated 2022 album, ‘Renaissance’.

She also released the dates and cities on her official website, reports ‘Variety’.

The timing of the announcement, which comes just days before the Grammy Awards on Sunday, sparks speculation that the singer may perform or at least appear on the show. Beyonce is the most nominated artist for the awards with nine, all related to ‘Renaissance’.

Sources tell Variety that her husband Jay-Z will perform with DJ Khaled on the show, most likely their nominated song “God Did.”

Beyonce performed her first full concert in four years on January 21 at the new Atlantis the Royal Resort in Dubai.

It was an elaborate and highly theatrical performance — for which sources say she was paid some $24 million — with an all-female orchestra, a battery of dancers, a small lake, fireworks, a 50-foot hydraulic platform, three costume changes for the singer and a guest appearance from her and Jay’s daughter Blue Ivy, but no songs at all from ‘Renaissance’ — a tease that could mean she’ll premiere one or two on the Grammys, or even save them for the tour.

Beyonce has said that ‘Renaissance’ is a three-part project, so it’s possible that the next parts could be another album, a long-form video project or even the tour itself.

Beyonce’s last full tour was the nearly six-month, 49-date ‘Formation’ tour in 2016, which unusually featured no guest appearances until the final show, at New Jersey’s MetLife Stadium, where she brought out Kendrick Lamar and Jay-Z.

She did, however, stage an epochal ‘Homecoming’ headlining performance at the 2018 Coachella festival — which was postponed from 2017 due to the birth of her and Jay’s twins — for which she was accompanied by a full marching band in a nod to historically Black colleges and universities.

That blockbuster performance was later released as the ‘Homecoming’ album and — via a three-project deal with Netflix that sources tell Variety is worth $60 million — a feature-length documentary. It seems possible that a future ‘Renaissance’ video project could be part of that deal as well.

Priyanka Chopra’s family

Priyanka and Nick welcomed Malti via surrogacy in January 2022 and since her arrival, the actor had posted several photos of her but without revealing her face.

Priyanka and Nick tied the knot in a Christian and a Hindu ceremony in Jodhpur’s Umaid Bhawan Palace on December 1 and 2 in 2018. Later, the couple also hosted two receptions in Delhi and Mumbai.

When Priyanka opened up on Malti’s birth

A few days ago, PeeCee finally broke her silence on her daughter’s birth and revealed why the couple opted for surrogacy. She had mentioned that she had certain medical complications and hence, they decided to go for surrogacy. She also slammed people accusing her of “outsourcing” her pregnancy and stated that her daughter won’t be a part of any gossip.

“I was in the operation room when she came out. She was so small, smaller than my hand. We spent every single day with her on my chest, on my husband’s chest,” PeeCee recalled.

She had also made it clear that people can comment on her as per their whims and fancies, but she will not let her daughter be “gossip”.
