Hard decisions

Hard decisions


The last two years have seen good dancers bowing out of the show to popular daily soap actors. Cases in point are Mona Singh and Prachi Desai. While there is no doubt that both are very good dancers, it is also true that there were better dancers than them in the show. Karan Singh Grover just repeated the same feat in this season of JDJ.
While all three judges felt that Karan should bow out because of his inferior dancing skills, his fans thought otherwise. The immensely popular Dr Armaan of Dil Mill Gayee won over superior dancer Hard Kaur who was eliminated last week — not because of his dancing skills, but popularity.

Chak de Nakul

It’s been nine years since Nakul Vaid started his journey in the entertainment industry. He started off his career in television with Challenge and then went to do shows like Tusli (Doordarshan) and Rihaai (Sony). After a tete-a-tete with the big screen Ab Tak Chappan (as Nana Patekar’s protégé) and Chak De India, the suave actor is back in limelight with a slew of three films.

“The first one I am doing is an NFDC film — As The River Flows — directed by Vidyut Kotoky. The second one is a film directed by Bhavna Talwar titled Happy. I will be playing a young, suave businessman with some grey shades. Pankaj Kapoor is also playing a key role in this movie,” informs Vaid. “However, the film that I am most excited about is cinematographer-turned-director Mazhar Kamran’s  Mohandas. The film is about a man who loses his identity due to an event and how he struggles to win back his identity.
