Shruti Bafna, Shital Thakkar, Priti Joshi and child artiste Rutu Parmar went through rigorous dance rehearsals with Nishant Bhatt, the choreographer of shows like Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa and Nach Baliye 4.


JD Majethia’s, Burey Bhi Hum Bhale Bhi Hum, recently saw some interesting, power-packed dance performances by the cast of the show. The mother- daughter jodis of the Popat family participated in the dance programme organised by the Australian Lohana community. Executive producer Harshada Potnis explained, “We integrated the belief that today’s woman is not merely confined to the house, but is equally at home on the world’s stage as well. So the wives and daughters of the Popat family decide to take part in a dance competition.”

Shruti Bafna, Shital Thakkar, Priti Joshi and child artiste Rutu Parmar went through rigorous dance rehearsals with Nishant Bhatt, the choreographer of shows like Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa and Nach Baliye 4.

Their male co-stars cheered them enthusiastically all the way. When asked why they were not dancing along, the men split into peals of laughter. “This Pappu can’t dance saala,” said Manoj Goyal, while Ashiesh Roy remarked with a straight face, “I dance only to my wife's tunes.”


Joining in the fun were the Nach Baliye 4 winners Shaleen and Daljeet, who were invited as special guests for the shoot. They wished good luck to the participants.

The entire Popat family was delighted to see the couple and also captured this special moment in time.


Double century for ‘Bandhan’


Bandhan Saat Janamon Ka on Colors completed its 200th episode on May 15. But rather than being happy, the whole crew was quite sad as they got the news that the show is going off air next month. Said Gunjan, the leading lady of the show, “We all had a small celebration. We cut the cake but actually nobody was in the mood for celebration as we all got to know that the show is going off air.

I am very sad and I am going to miss the show very much as this is the show which has given me all the recognition. I am going to miss my name Jhanvi a lot and also the whole cast and crew. I am going to miss my producers and directors. And now as the show is going off air, I have become unemployed and am looking out for a new show.” Though happy with the completion of 200 episodes, the scriptwriter of the show Sampurn Anand also seemed to be sad. “The show was very close to my heart as the storyline was on dowry and how a woman gets exploited because of that. Hailing from a small town like Bihar, I have come across many such incidents so I know how bad it is. I have been writing the show right from the beginning and it feels really nice that the show has completed 200 episodes. When we started the show on the time slot of 7.30 pm, we had no idea that the show will have such good TRP’s at this slot.”

“I think because of Bandhan, even other shows realised that a timeslot doesn’t matter, what matters is the content and the storyline. Everyone is sad that the show is going off air but I guess the producers don’t want to stretch it unnecessarily because the original story is over already.”
