The most talked about reality show ‘Bigg Boss’ season 7 is ruling all the news channels everywhere. The show is perhaps the most awaited, watched and popular program in the reality showbiz. While the show has garnered much talk due to the hot shot celeb star anchor, the very dabangg ‘Salman Khan’, who dons a black and white look for this season, contestants too are now fetching a lot of attention towards the show.
The anticipated list of Bigg Boss Season 7 contestants is out and people are now waiting eagerly for all of them to get onto the ‘BB7’ bandwagon and create furore. Considering the concept of the reality show, not to mention the background reputation of the finalized contestants, the audience can expect high voltage drama and full on masti with every episode.
Mahi Vij came in full limelight when she won the Nach Baliye trophy for season 6, but will she be able to retain the flavor for more razzmatazz? Well I guess we will have to simply wait and watch.
Both Yuvraj Singh and Manisha Koirala are known to be real life warriors because of their stint with dreaded disease like cancer. Its only time which will tell whether they can rise as warriors on the show too!
Shekhar Suman might have created a lot of fan following with ‘Movers and Shakers’, but his ability to move and shake the audience in Bigg Boss platform will have to be monitored well.
Other than these interesting candidates, there are still a lot of talks about the finality of participants. Small screen artistes like Pooja Gor, KBC 5 crore winner Sushil Kumar, Kapil Sharma, Navin Bajaj, Hansika Motwani are all believed to be roped in for the show. However, they still have to confirm their presence on the show.
If court proceedings and time permit, we might get lucky to watch ‘Sooraj Pancholi’s’ small screen debut, much before he makes it big on celluloid. The star son had been approached by the makers for his current shot to fame through actress Jiah Khan’s suicide. Let’s see if we catch a glimpse of the actor in the making on his mentor, guide, his Salman bhai’s show this year.
Actors like Rakshanda Khan, Poonam Pandey, Chunky Pandey, Kritika Kamra, Manish Paul, Puja Gupta, Shirish Kunder( choreographer turned director Farah Khan’s husband), Gaurav Gera, Sanjeeda Sheikh have all been approached by the makers and they too are currently a much substantial part in the anticipatory list of contestants.

We all love Kapil Sharma and now he is ready to give us maximum dose of entertainment by producing his own show- Comedy Nights with Kapil.
Actor-comedian Kapil will mark his debut as a producer with this show which will be aired on Colors. He will be seen donning multiple avatars – actor, scriptwriter and producer in his home production.
Well it seems that Comedy Circus has made him rich. Of course he deserves what he has achieved by his hard work. Kapil had won many seasons of Comedy Circus and we all know his comic timing is amazing!
So, there will be now a non-stop roller coaster ride for viewers who love comedy. The baap of comedy on television will woo them by his mad family.
His look in it will be of a cop, which might remind the viewers of Salman Khan’s character from the film Dabangg (2010).
Names like Ali Asgar, Upasana Singh, Sunil Grover and Sumona Chakravarti have joined Kapil Sharma in Comedy Nights. The show, loosely based on the British comedy ‘The Kumars At No. 42‘, will be a unique take on everyday life.
The show will see Kapil having an in-house studio, which will have a celebrity coming in every week who will be interviewed by Kapil’s family — his wife, played by Sumona Chakravarti. While Upasana Singh will play the eccentric bua, Sunil Grover will be donning several avatars throughout the series. Ali Asgar, who is an expert in sporting a lady’s garb, will now take on the role of Kapil’s grandmother, dadiji. OMG! I am already giggling thinking about their wacky ideas. I am sure you guys are gonna love this!
If these names by any chance don’t tickle your funny bone then let us inform you that Navjot Singh Siddhu will also be seen in this show to race the meter of comedy .
Comedy Nights with Kapil, slated to be aired over the weekends in June on Colors channel, will see Siddhu engage in a fun banter with comedian Kapil Sharma. “I’ve worked with Kapil earlier and it feels great to be back together,” says the 49-year-old Amritsar MP, adding, “The show is a comic take on everyday life, and Kapil and his family will be seen giving their bits about all that is happening around.”
Kapil Sharma’s hands are full as he will also be seen hosting the new season of Jhalak Dikhla Jaa on the same channel with Manish Paul. iDubba wishes Kapil lot of luck for his new venture!

Shakespeare said what’s in the name. Forgive me Sir…but in show biz …. it’s all in
the name. Had this not been the case then one would have not come across endless
speculations on participant names on board for season 6 of Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa
flagship. And neither the channel would have taken great pains in carefully
selecting and presenting celebrities from different walks of life.
Putting rest to all speculations, let’s meet the final 12 contestants of season 6 of JDJ
JDJ got its very first contestant in singing sensation Shaan. After making his listeners groove on his hit number It’s the time to disco; it’s now his turn to bat on a different pitch …or rather should we say, shake his leg. News is that JDJ 4 winner choreographer Marischa Fernandes will return to the show as Shaan’s partner in crime. Will Marischa be able to continue her winning stride or not, we will all have to wait and watch
Buzz in the industry was that Sanaya Irani had won the entry ticket to JDJ by defeating Drashti Dhami. But then we were caught by the wrong bug. TV’s reining queen; the scintillating and vivacious Madhubala aka Drashti is bracing her moves to rock on the dance floor. She managed to carve a niche for self by donning role of Geet and now rules the roost as Madhu. Reportedly she will be teamed up with choreographer Salman. She defeats everyone hands down in popularity segment. Will her humungous fan following win her the JDJ trophy, we’ll have to wait till it’s time
No one can dare compete with him when it comes to putting up a comedy act or rj’ing but when it comes to dancing; Suresh Menon believes he is like a joker amongst his co-participants. He agreed to JDJ for a new kinda exposure and expects to learn a lot from his choreographer Suchitra. Dance or no dance, aren’t we surely looking forward to full paisa vasool entertainment from his trio with Manish Paul and Kapil Sharma……
After hosting season 3 of the show, it’s time for sizzling Shweta Tiwari to hit the floor and make the audiences go gaga with her desi latkas and jhatkas. Her penchant for reality TV seems to have got bigger and better post winning Bigg Boss 4. This multifaceted actress had proved her prowess in acting, dancing, anchoring and surely her presence in JDJ will add to the oomph factor. Will her strong dancing skills take her to the top, we’ll come to know sooner
The handsomest bad boy of TV Karanvir Bohra, who makes you fall head over heels, is not new to dancing. He is a trained dancer and has participated in dance reality shows viz. Sony TV’ Kabhi Kabhi Pyaar, Kabhi Kabhi Yaar and Nach Baliye 4 with his wife. He floored the judges with his teamed up performance with Isha Shervani and Salman in season 5 of JDJ. Judges are the same but will the magic continue, his fans definitely hope so
Another representative from B’town is renowned movie actress and former model Aarti Chhabria. Her never say die attitude won her the Khatron Ki Khiladhi season 4 and now she is all geared up to stamp and stomp the show. We have seen her moves on 90mm screen but now on the small screen will she be able to sweep the JDJ trophy, is yet to be seen
The beautiful damsel in distress, Sahiba aka Ekta Kaul of Rab Se Sona Ishq fame, will be seen matching her steps to her co-contestants. It will surely be interesting to watch coy and reserved Ekta to break loose on dance floor. We are yet to find out more about her dancing abilities but surely she is in for some serious competition. Will she be able to stand the storm, yes…no…yes…no….let’s see
Balaji’ blue eyed boy Eijaz Khan will mark his return on small screen with JDJ after Sony TV’ Shubh Vivah. We understand his shoulder injury was the reason for his absence onscreen and he is still recuperating from the same. In such a scenario how wise is his decision to participate in dance show of level of JDJ, we will soon find out
She participated in season 3 of U.S edition of So You Think You Can Dance and finished in top 6. She enchanted us with her dazzling performance in the movie ABCD and will soon be seen shaking her booty on JDJ. Internationally acclaimed choreographer Lauren Gottlieb; after having choreographed Tom Cruise and Shakira; will yet again turn contestant for a dance show. Will the choreographer assigned to her (most likely Punit) be able to match up to her, dekhna padega
He wooed us with his the guy next door kinda performance as Shivraj Shekhar aka Shiv in Balika Vadhu making him one of the favourite damad of Indian telly. He is now ready to show us his moves on the dance floor. Will Siddharth Shukla, the winner of Best Model of the World 2005 be able to steal our hearts with his dance performance, hmmmm……
To break free from the label of Ammaji, we will get to see a new modern and ravishing avatar of Meghna Malik. She is a renowned TV artist and worked in number of shows, however it was Na Aana Is Des Laado that got her the deserving applaud. Will Ammaji be able to rock the dance stage, we will get to know soon
Last but not the least, the little dancing wonders who will surely give rest of the contestants a run for their money are India’s Got Talent 4 winners Maraju Sumanth and Sonali Majumdar. They excel in Salsa moves but will they be able to do justice to other dance styles is yet to be seen

Right from the start of ‘Doordarshan’ to the wide range of channels, Indian Silver screen has traversed the path of success significantly over the past 60-70 years. In this phenomenal success story, many programs have formed a pivotal role in contributing towards its growth.
Talking about programs, some of them had been the one, which came along with some striking anchors, who inched up their success on Indian silver screen, hence becoming as important in the growth of the Indian TV, as the programs themselves.
Let’s know some of the best anchors, which our silver screen has produced till date. These anchors have definitely raised the bar of hosting a show and continue to inspire the wannabe anchors of the new age.
Renuka Shahane and Siddharth Kak
Who could forget the ever smiling and witty duo of the popular show on Doordarshan called ‘Surabhi’? Perhaps one of the record breaking shows of the channel, the program succeeded in running for 8 long years since 1993, becoming the longest running cultural series. In fact, the show garnered huge popularity because of its format and the anchoring. It was even featured by the Limca book of records, for receiving the largest measured audience response in the history of Indian TV.
The very name reminds one of the popular shows, ‘Movers and Shakers’, which saw Shekhar Suman in his most prolific anchoring acts. Although he has hosted many shows since then, his Movers and Shakers continues to remain a cult in his genre of anchoring. He was not just versatile, but equally charming in his acts.
He had mastered the art of singing and understanding the proper ‘sur, tal’ behind them. He, along with Durga Jasraj, had made the singing reality show, ‘Close Up Antakshri’, a huge hit. His charm, his knowledge and his witty remarks often left the participants as well as the judge, or singing maestros, charmed. He still hosts a similar show, on Masti Channel, where he plays old Hindi movie songs. The show is called ‘The Golden Era-with Anu Kapoor’.
If Indian masses have known him as the versatile actor of the arts film genre, then there is no denial of him being an equally versatile anchor for his show ‘Jeena Isi ka Naam Hai-season 1.’ His candid conversations with the celebrities and the likes, made him and the show very interesting and likable.
Whatever he touches turns into gold! Maybe you can term him the King Midas of Indian silver screen, cause the moment he stepped in to it, he changed the face of anchoring completely. His indefatigable energy levels, the warmth of his talk, the witty chit-chat with the participants and the intellectual and dignified persona, everything about him charmed the millions, who couldn’t help but stay tuned to KBC every night at 9. He stole the show with his charm, presentation and made the show a huge success, fetching the ‘People Choice award’ for best TV host.
The unabashed witty and charming Salman Khan has proved to be a good entertainer on the TV as well. He started his journey with ‘Dus ka Dum’, but has travelled well with Bigg Boss seasons 4 and 5, fetching huge audience response. The audience loves his warmth, his candid talks with the participants, including the celebrity guests on his show.
He is the new entrant into the list of successful anchors of Indian TV. He has a number of shows to his credit like DID Li’l masters, Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Singing Superstar, Nach Baliye and a few award ceremonies as well. He is today considered to be the most watched and loved anchor of the industry.
He has made crime talk, the talk of the town. His show ‘Crime Patrol’ has garnered good response from the audience on the back of his good presentation. Although he has been seen in many TV soaps, he has definitely gained an edge with his power packed brilliant anchoring with Crime Patrol.
