It was a very eventful week in the world of TV. Actress Megha Dhade became the first winner of Bigg Boss Marathi. On a bad note, Sidharth Shukla hit a divider with his car. Actress Saumya Tandon made news for reportedly exiting her popular show, Bhabhiji Ghar Par Hain. Here is a detailed lowdown….
TV actress Megha Dhade became the first winner of the inaugural season of Bigg Boss Marathi. Pushkar Jog and she were the two finalists out of which host Mahesh Manjrekar declared her as the winner. She has done a few Hindi serials and even worked in Ekta Kapoor serials like Kasauti Zindagi Kay and Kasturi. She is married to Anand Pawaskar. She shed tears of joys as her name was called as the winner. Megha also won Rs 50 lakhs. Mahesh Manjrekar had called her the ‘Jaan’ of the show. For the audiences, she was the drama queen.
TV hunk Sidharth Shukla was arrested and later released after he rammed his car, a BMW X5 into a divider. It hit three vehicles and three people suffered minor injuries. The actor escaped shaken but unhurt. He got bail after a penalty of Rs 5,000. It seems he lost control of the car. The accident took place in Oshiwara. The police booked the Balika Vadhu actor under sections 279 (Rash driving or riding on a public way), 336 (Act endangering life or personal safety of others), 337 (Causing hurt by act endangering life or personal safety of others) and 427 (Mischief causing damage to the amount of fifty rupees) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC). It seems his blood samples have been taken to determine if he was drunk while driving. As per reports, he took involved in a road accident in 2014 as well. Sidharth was last seen on Dil Se Dil Tak but he exited the show rather unceremoniously.
There is immense speculation around who is the male lead of Kasauti Zindagi Kay 2. Days after a daily reported that Parth Samthaan was the final choice as Anurag, news came in that Shamitabh actor Abhimanyu Chaudhary was the makers’ choice. He is a very good-looking guy with a chiseled body. The fact that Abhimanyu shared the promo on his Instagram page further heightened the speculation if he indeed is the final choice as Anurag.
Fans of Bhabhi Ji Ghar Par Hain got a shock when news surfaced that Saumya aka Anita Bhabhi had quit the show. However, the actress replied that she was on a week’s leave due to liver infection and was back shooting in Naigaon. The speculations did not end there as an entertainment portal reported that she was serving her notice period. It seems she was bored having played the same character for over three years now and wanted to explore other avenues. There was buzz of her doing Bigg Boss 12 but she denied the same. Finally, news came that she wants to exit as she plans to start a family. However, Saumya set all the rumours to rest. She said, “I am aware that rumours about me planning a family are doing the rounds. My reply is that I would love to have a baby. Motherhood is a beautiful experience and I surely don’t want to miss out on that. In fact, if it happens, I will share it with everyone and enjoy it when the right time comes. As of now, I have no news to share. These things are in God’s hands. Who are we to decide?” Also, my producers are so accommodating and sweet that they had once told me that even during pregnancy, I can continue doing the show, and later go on maternity leave. This is a wonderful change in the entertainment industry, and I really applaud that.” This is not all. It seems Saumya is two months pregnant and her bump is slightly visible.
The lady found herself in a spot of bother when a Bengaluru based student charged her of cheating by sharing the fake ad of iPhone X on her Instagram. According to a Deccan Chronicle report, Yuvraj Singh Yadav who followed Bandgi on Instagram, said the Bigg Boss 11 contestant had posted a fake advertisement of an iPhone X on behalf of two-Delhi based firms, Different Collection and Nexafation.com. The student quickly booked it as it was cheaper than the market price of Rs 83,000. It seems he transferred Rs 13,000 to a PayTM account linked to the number stated in the ad. Later, when he checked her account, he found the ad missing. It seems the seller assured Yadav that the product would be delivered to him. It seems Yadav paid Rs 48,000 and found that it was a dummy iPhone X. Then, he filed a police complaint and Bandagi has been summoned by the Bengaluru police.
