We often wonder why we get into situations that turn out to be so embarrassing for all concerned that we want to be anywhere else but at the appointed place of mortification.
Such thoughts must have passed through the minds of Farah Khan’s guests this weekend on Star Plus new cretinous concoction Lip Sing Battle. On the two episodes on Saturday and Sunday evening I saw Farhan Akhtar, Arjun Kapoor, Karan Johar, Parineeti Chopra , Preity Zinta and other bigwigs(they all are big and they had to wear wigs) make a bigger fool of themselves than they have in their entire career so far.
Acha chalo, Farhan had to undergo this face-palm torture for Farah’s sake. She is his cousin, you know. The things one has to do for family…oof! But why did Karan Johar get into this utterly inane vacuous and retarded show whose target audience seems to be kindergarten students of no exceptional intellectual abilities?
Doesn’t Karan Johar have enough problems to deal with?Or is he missing Koffee With Karan so much that he’s willing to settle Faltugiri With Farah?
There was a lot of whooping and screaming going on the show. Perhaps the noise was meant to hide the complete absence of a sense of direction or even a basic intelligence in the presentation. Everyone kept dancing and singing to vintage songs in completely unconvincing disguises.And not one dance that could be called referential or engaging.Clumsiness seems to be the brief for all the concerned.
Worst of the lot was Ali Asgar who was hijacked from Kapil Sharma’s show. He was obnoxious to the point of being unbearable.Asgar who is a very fine comic talent should know just by wrapping a saree around one’s rotund belly one can’t generate humour.
There seems to be no writer on board for this homage to nepotism in the entertainment industry. Would Farhan & Co have agreed to be on this trashy show if it wasn’t hosted by Farha Khan?
Though there is nothing even remotely funny about the show I am sure Kangana Ranaut is laughing really hard.
