TRP war between Satyamev Jayate and KBC

The recent much debated Aamir Khan’s Satyamev Jayate show hosted by Amir Khan failed to get the rating anywhere near Amitabh Bachchan's Kaun Banega Crorepathi (KBC). Satyamev Jayate showed how a person who was abused as a child recovers through the love and affection of his pet.

Aamir Khan is very fond of films and the movies help him to get past the traumatic experience.

The show Satyamev Jayate recorded a viewer ship of 90 million but that is because of the advertisement, say people who like Amitabh Bachchan's show.

When compared to Amitabh Bachchan's Kaun Banega Crorepathi (KBC) (season II) show which was rated at 19.73, there seems to be a lot of difference between the two.

The Television Rating Point (TRP) is the viewer's opinion of how popular a show is. A rating of 3-4 is good while one which is 6-7 is excellent.

As per the sources, Aamir Khan got a rating of around 3 for his show Satyamev Jayate.


Who is Chammak Challo?

Sonakshi Sinha's act in a red saree in the song "Chammak challo chail chabeeli" from "Rowdy Rathore" has forced people to draw comparisons with Kareena Kapoor's "Chammak challo" in "RA.One". However, the actress brushes it off as mere co-incidence and insists the two not be compared.

"I am not just Chammak Challo, I am also Chail Chabeeli. I would like to say when we had shot for this song, 'Ra. One' had not released and we had not seen that 'Chammak Challo' in a red saree. It's just a co-incidence," the 24-year-old said here Monday in an interview.

Sonakshi insists that the two songs are completely different.

"Both the songs are different, it was westernized but our song is full of Indian melody. So you should not compare the two," said Sonakshi, who made her Bollywood debut as a demure village belle with "Dabangg".

Directed by Prabhu Deva, "Rowdy Rathore" will hit the silver screens June 1.

Besides promoting "Rowdy Rathore", Sonakshi is also busy shooting for "Joker", "Lootera" and "Dabangg 2".


Baby Boy of Shilpa

Actress Shilpa Shetty has delivered a baby boy Monday morning in Hinduja Hospital tweeted her ecstatic husband Raj Kundra.

Shilpa Shetty’s delivery was due next month but when she has gone to the hospital for her normal checkup her doctor admitted her immediately as contractions has started. Husband Raj Kundra remained with her all the time. Only when he saw the baby boy he left for home to get some rest.

Raj Kundra has broken the news on micro blogging site Twitter, “God has blessed us with a beautiful baby boy. Both mother and baby are fine. I am thrilled to bits!!!!!!” He wrote again, “A big thank you to my wife TheShilpaShetty for the bestest gift ever, DR Kiran Cohelo and all the staff at Hinduja Hospital!”

Raj Kundra also thanked those who congratulated them, “Thank you all for your love and wishes for our new born. Both mum and Baby K are resting. Our Parents now turn grandparents blessedbaby.” Shilpa Shetty has declared earlier that she will store her child’s stem cells. She said, Stem cell banking gives me the peace of mind for my baby’s health. By banking stem cells, my child will have more medical options in the future.”

Shilpa Shetty and Raj got married in 2009. Shilpa announced her news of pregnancy in December, last year. This is couple’s first child. Shilpa Shetty’s sister Shamita has thrown a baby shower party early this month. Bollywood used twitter to congratulate Raj and Shilpa Shetty on this joyous occasion.


Akshay : Away from Controversy.

Shah Rukh Khan and Saif Ali Khan have recently been in the midst of controversies, but Akshay Kumar says he has been lucky not to have been a victim to any such incident.

“May be I escaped from controversies, maybe I was not caught. No, it is not like that… There are situations when controversies are made and controversies are created out of nothing,” said Akshay here.

“Some actors fell into that! But no one wants to get caught into any controversy; everyone wants to hear good things about themselves. It is situations that make you a victim of some controversy. I feel I am lucky enough not to become a victim of any controversy. May be I escaped from it,” he added.

The actor last made for negative news during the 2009 Lakme Fashion Week in Mumbai. He invited trouble by asking wife Twinkle Khanna to unzip his jeans during a show.

But he has no regrets about it.

“I would still say that unbuttoning thing was not wrong,” the 44-year-old said.


Harbhajan to marry Geeta

Both Harbhajan Singh and actress Geeta Basra have been enjoying the swings of romance since long but why they keep mum on the issue is weird. They both have been spotted at various locations together. Nonetheless the couple wants to be silent on their romance. Well, we all know that the romance is in the air then why is the need to hide it?

Even in many of Mumbai Indian’s matches during the ongoing IPL Season 5, Geeta was spotted wearing Mumbai Indian’s shirt to support the team and her beau Singh. So it is obvious that this support is not for Mumbai Indians but for the team’s captain Harbhajan Singh.
