Aditya Narayan: “Time To Work On My Childhood Dream”

Published

on

Indian Idol’s popular  host  singer Aditya Narayan  always dreamt  of  winning a Grammy  for  India. That’s what he  will work on now.

Says  Aditya,  “I am  quitting hosting music reality shows. Since 2015 I have been hosting non-stop. Also by the grace of God, one season that I am a part of is equivalent to 2-3 seasons if someone else were  to host. Since 2015  I’ve hosted 4 seasons of SaReGaMaPa ,that’s  170 episodes. 2 seasons of Indian Idol amounting to  120 episodes .1 season of Khatra Khatra Khatra a total of  110 episodes .That’s a grand  total   of  400 episodes. Other shows that I’ve  hosted are Khatron Ke Khiladi,Rising Star,Entertainment Ki Raat ,Kitchen Champion ,Zee Comedy Show . Coming  up with  me as  host are    another season of SaReGaMaPa,another season of Indian Idol ,and  another kids’ singing show.”

 Says Aditya , “Now  I’m done  with hosting  shows. It’s  time to move  on  to something  much  bigger  in my life.  I wish to produce content now….Music albums as well as content for OTT & TV.  It’s the right time. My heart is sure that this is what  I want  to do.It’s  also time to work on my  childhood dream of winning a Grammy for India. All eyes are on India. It’s our time to shine globally. We just need to put our heads down and put in the hard work.”

Aditya  senses  the decline in  popular  musical  standards  in India  and  wants  to rectify the  imbalance.  “Just because a wave is going a particular way and it’s is working for a few people doesn’t mean we all follow suit.There are followers and then there are visionaries I’d like to think of myself as the latter.”

Tanushree Dutta with Sajid Khan

Like many  who were horrified  to see the MeToo accused Sajid Khan being welcomed into  Bigg Boss with  Salman  Khan’s blessings, actress Tanushree  Dutta who heralded the MeToo movement in  Bollywood,   has also been deeply affected  by this shocking turn  of events.

Speaking  exclusively Tanushree says, “I’m appalled . Speechless at the sheer irresponsibility towards the impact of such a thing on the public. I don’t watch Bigg Boss and I think I never will after this.”

To Tanushree goes the credit for bringing the  MeToo movement  into Bollywood. In 2018 she accused  actor Nana Patekar and several others  of harassment.

Speaking in   an earlier interview Tanushree had said, “It’s been very hard on me emotionally, psychologically and financially these 12 years  after the mob violence on  the sets  of Horn OK Please  in 2008 instigated by Nana Patekar and his goons.I had gone into severe depression post that episode for many years because the level of cunning manipulation, public humiliation and threats I had to endure was too much for me.”

Tanushee says she has  got no support in her fight against  sexual discrimination  from the film fraternity. Instead of getting justice and being  rehabilitated into work in Bollywood, her  primary source of income, she has been further been pushed and forced into legal procedures.

Speaking on the impact of  the MeToo movement  in India ,Tanushree said,  “What I’m most concerned about is what impact might it have on women, girls and boys of the next generation who are being taught about feminism, human rights and empowerment?? I mean you can’t blow the trumpet on empowerment and then have a corrupt and outdated legal system bind you with loopholes.”

Sajid Khan

When  MeToo-tainted  filmmaker Sajid Khan made a quiet entry into the Bigg Boss  last week , little  did he  expect the uproar that  followed.

 The social media is  filled with howls  of outrage. Singer Sona Mohapatra  called out Javed Akhtar and son  Farhan  for  not speaking  out against  Sajid’s clean-chit treatment.Now Iranian actresses Mandana Karimi, lately in the news for protesting in Mumbai  against the Hijab in her home country, has apparently blown  open the lid on  Sajid Khan’s  stealthy  entry into  Bigg House.

Earlier this week   Mandana announced her decision to quit Bollywood after Sajid’s entry  into Bigg Boss. She  feels there is  little respect for women in Bollywood, and she is not wrong.

In a video clip that Kangana  Ranaut has shared  on social media   from  BBC’s documentary  Death In Bollywood  suicide victim Jiah Khan’s  sister Karishma  has  now  made fresh serious  allegations  against  Sajid Khan .

This  seems to have finally   shaken up the  Bigg Boss producers. There is  now  a serious behind-the-scenes discussion  to evict Sajid Khan immediately.

Sources say the producers Endemol  Shine  India never expected such an uproar against  Khan’s  contestability on Bigg Boss.

“No Offence To Nayanthara Fans,” Says  Karan Johar

Nayanthara

Fans of Tamil superstar  Nayanthara have  taken  huge umbrage  to Karan  Johar insisting on Koffee With Karan  that Samantha Prabhu and not Nayanthara  is  the no.1 star, even when Samantha insisted  the crown  belonged  to Nayanthara.

Karan Johar  clarified  that he meant no offence  to Nayanthara. “I said, according to  the list that I  had  from Ormax, Samantha  was  the  no.1 star. Nayanthara’s  fans have misconstrued  the  conversation.”

That’s not all  that a section of Koffee viewers  have misconstrued. Samantha’a tongue-in-cheek sarcastic “confession” that she paid Ormax  to  list her as  the No.1 heroine has  triggered  off stories  in  a section of  the press on the amount she paid for the honour.

“I think  we all need to have a sense of humour.Mine is  a  fun show,” says  Karan.
