After winning 'KBC' jackpot, Sushil building house for family

Sushil Kumar created history by winning jackpot of Rs.5 crore in the fifth season of game show “Kaun Banega Crorepati”. And after receiving the prize money, he is on road to building a new house and providing a secure future to his family.

"Ever since I got the money, my first priority was to have my own house and have my family live under one roof. A three-storey house is getting constructed and it will be ready in the next few months," Sushil, who hails from Motihari, Bihar, told IANS.

He was presented a cheque of Rs.3.5 crore after tax deduction by 'KBC' host Amitabh Bachchan during the CNN-IBN Indian of the Year Awards in December last year.

He lives in a big family of five brothers, two sisters-in-law, nieces and nephews. It was purely his knowledge that made him the owner of a huge amount of Rs.5 crore.

A complete family man, Sushil gave the entire prize money to his kin.

"We have saved some money in fixed deposit schemes and have made other investments too, so that my family's future gets secured," he said.

Before becoming a 'crorepati', Sushil worked as a computer operator and was surviving on a meagre salary of Rs.6,000 a month.

With an amount of Rs.3.5 crore, one would think about tasting luxurious lifestyle, but the 28-year-old has no such desires.

"I never yearned for money. If you ask me what have I bought for myself, I would say nothing much. I never thought of buying a car. Sometimes we go out and shop for clothes and other basic necessities. Nothing more than that so far," he said.

"Even my wife doesn't spend unnecessarily. She is also in the favour of saving," he added.

But he seems to be smitten by glitz and glamour and is enjoying his tryst with fame on the dance reality show "Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa".

Madhuri Dixit, one of the judges on the show, has nick-named him "antarmukhi" (an introvert).
Sushil is delighted to see people's changing perception towards him after his big win on 'KBC'.

"They have started respecting me. Those who used to ignore me, now listen to me, which is a great feeling. They have started respecting my knowledge too. Everybody is proud of me now," he said.

Adaa Khan not comfortable with negative roles

Mumbai, July 30 (IANS) TV actress Adaa Khan, who plays the negative role of Amrit in "Amrit Manthan", says she doesn't enjoy playing the bad one on-screen and she is waiting for her character to turn positive.

"I'm waiting for the final turn where I will become the real Amrit. (When I took on the show), I knew my character had grey shades. I was okay with it, but suddenly it was made completely negative. I was not keen on doing something which was negative," Adaa told IANS.

Adaa plays a strong-headed princess on the show, aired on Life OK. Her character can go to any level to safeguard her family's grace.

The actress finds the character challenging as it is completely opposite to her real life personality.

"For an actor to play what they are in real life is easy, but it's tough to play something opposite. We have to maintain a 'switch on and switch off' system. My character is full of ego, but in real life I'm not like that," she said.

However, she has no qualms dealing with the script as she feels people today prefer challenging storylines.

"The audience outlook has changed. They have become more broad-minded. Even the producers don't want to do shows which portray life to be positive and all good. They also show the other side of life, where one will not only meet sweet and sugar-coated people, but also people who can betray," she added.

After acting in popular shows like "Behenein" and "Palampur Express", Adaa says her journey has been relatively easy. She is satisfied with her career graph, and has no plans to enter Bollywood as she is "scared".

"There is too much glamour! From the beginning I had to think so much before entering acting. I wanted my personal life to be personal. When one goes on a big screen, there is nothing (no privacy) left. As of now, I am scared," said Adaa, who says there's no dearth of Bollywood offers for her.

Shikha Swaroop makes a comeback with 'Ramayan'

She shot to fame with her victory at the Miss India pageant in 1988 and made a distinct mark on viewers' minds as the lead of Chandrakanta and then vanished without a trace for the longest time.

Those who thought that this promising actress with oodles of grace and beauty shouldn't have just faded away into oblivion can rejoice as Shikha Swaroop makes a comeback in Zee TV's much talked-about mythological series 'Ramayan'.

Confirming the news, Swaroop said, `Yes, I've been signed on to play Kaikeyi in Zee TV's Ramayan. With this show, I'm told Zee is planning to bring back the whole Sunday morning TV viewing experience for the whole family and I think that's a great idea."

"I am excited about my role of Kaikeyee as essaying a warrior queen with shades of grey calls for an air of regality, poise that comes only with power, strength of character and a stern, steely body language."

"As a former beauty pageant winner and a model, I have, over the years, imbibed the art of composing my body language and carrying myself in a manner that projects the right image required for any role I play. I will enjoy playing such an iconic mythological character and hope to add my own charm and individuality to it,` she said.

About the casting of Kaikeyi, producer Meenakshi Sagar said, `I think Shikhaji will lend tremendous grace and dignity to Kaikeyi. She is a veteran actress whose previous work we have great regard for. Almost 25 years after being crowned Miss India, she is as stunning as ever even today. We look forward to a glorious association with her through this show.”

Ramayan premieres on August 12.

Kangna-Deepika comparisons hound newcomer Bidita Bag!


Having modeled for many successful brands and campaigns, spunk-chick Bidita Bag, who is all set to make her Bollywood debut this week with the comedy From Sydney With Love, is in a quandary.

The reason: This Bong beauty is continuously being compared to more established heroines namely Kangna Ranaut and Deepika Padukone. In fact, she has been getting a lot of film offers that have gone to Kangna earlier.

“It’s amusing how some filmmakers have been thinking of me as some kind of replacement to Kangna Ranaut,” she happily giggles. “I’ve been offered at least half-a-dozen movies by makers who say I fit the bill for a ‘Kangana-type-of-role’ – whatever that means!”

As if this isn’t enough, some makers tell Bidita, she looks and even sounds like Deepika Padukone; so much so that if she would dub for Deepika, no one might come to know – another comparison that the debutante has to live with, at least for now.

And while the girl takes these links with a pinch of salt, Bidita does assert that she wishes to “carve a completely original identity” for herself, even if she agrees to a Deepika or Kangna-kind-of-role. Lol. Looking at her performance in the promos of From Sydney With Love, we do believe that the actress is versatile.

For the record, her movie’s release will clash with none other than Jism 2; the debut vehicle of international porn sensation Sunny Leone. But Bidita smiles and shrugs it off. “I don’t fear Sunny Leone. Apart from my looks and acting capabilities, I have inner beauty,” she remarks with confidence.

When compared to the mass appeal Sunny’s cleavage carries, Bidita reacts, “A little bit of concealing is any day more erotic than showing everything, isn’t it?”

Sambhavna Seth upstages Rakhi Sawant in Tollywood!


In Bollywood, Rakhi Sawant and Sambhavna Seth are both firebrands in their own way. But when it comes to the Bengali film industry Tollywood, the spice queens are engaged in a new war or sorts.

Some time ago, Rakhi went to town over performing an item number in an upcoming Bengali film. But as per the latest reports, now spunky Sambhavna has gone ahead and done a catchy Bong song in a Tollywood flick called Gundairaj.

What's more! The makers of Sam's movie are planning to beat Rakhi's number by releasing their film before the other. Moreover, the girls have a history of fighting with each other.

It can be recalled how Rakhi had lambasted Sambhavna during Bigg Boss and even ousted her from the dance show Zara Nachke Dikha; with rumours that she had asked its makers to drop Sam if they wanted Rakhi on the show.

Sambhavna was indeed dropped. Nevertheless, she moved on to participate in its competing show Dancing Queen and even won it.

All this makes us wonder, if the makers of Jhalak Dikhhla Ja missed out on this whole Rakhi-Sambhavna war. After all, the babes could have made perfect competition and brought greater dramatic value to their show this year.

Evelyn Sharma caught partying hard with Kolaveri Di boy Dhanush!


Just hours after walking the ramp as a showstopper for ace designer Nazia Syed, Bollywood newbie Evelyn Sharma was spotted club-hopping with Tamil actor-turned-filmmaker Dhanush K Raja; as the Kolaveri Di boy turned 29 this week.

A birdie tells us that ever since Evelyn visited Chennai for the inauguration of a gymnasium last month, she has become good friends with the “Why This Kolaveri Di” (Why This Murderous Rage, Girl?) boys – music composer Anirudh Ravichander and actor-writer-singer Dhanush.

After the two had flown down to Mumbai for Evelyn’s birthday bash a few days ago; she returned the gesture by heading to Chennai for Dhanush’s birthday bash this week. We even got to know that the boys took her on a club-hopping tour with a bunch of friends celebrating Dhanush’s birthday in pomp and style, while they all danced the night away in maddening frenzy.

The half-German half-Indian Evelyn has already signed five movies before her debut this week with the comedy From Sydney With Love. Wonder if this new-found friendship with Anirudh and Dhanush will add a Tamil movie to her over-flowing kitty!

Has love started blossoming between Harshad Chopra and Sriti Jha?

It seems that love has started blossoming between Harshad Chopra and Sriti Jha. They are currently sharing screen space in Life Ok's show  'Dil Se Di Dua Saubhagyavati Bhava'.

As per our sources from the set it is noticed that, they spend most of the time in each other's makeup room. Couple of days ago when Sriti was ill, Harshad took care of her like a doting boyfriend.

Harshad was earlier linked to Sonam Mann, Additi Gupta and Anupriya Kapoor. He was rumored to be in a relationship with his Dharampatni co-star Aasiya Kazi as well.

When he signed Saubhagyavati Bhava, everyone started speculating that he will be linked to Sriti Jha. Even at that time Harshad said jokingly, "I am pretty sure that my name will be linked with Sriti. Har bar meri costars ko meri girlfriend bana deta hai media."

Well Harshad if you knew that your name will be linked with Sriti then instead of spending time in Sriti' s makeup room you should have taken extra precautions to avoid such news.

We tried to contact him but as usual he didn't picked up the call. Sriti denied by saying, "It's all rumors."

Well jaha dhua hai waha kahi na kahi aag toh hogi.

Evelyn Sharma to star with Ayushmann Khurrana and Kunal Roy Kapur


The half-Indian half-German Evelyn Sharma, who made news as Bollywood's latest fashionista sometime ago, seems to be emerging the first foreigner after Katrina Kaif to get a good grip on Bollywood.

The newbie hasn’t even completed a year in the industry yet, but has just tucked her fifth film in her over-flowing kitty this week. Evelyn will now also be seen playing a lead with Vicky Donor star Ayushmann Khurrana, Delhi Belly fame Kunal Roy Kapur and newcomer Pooja Salvi in Rohan Sippy’s next!

When Sippy offered Evelyn “a beautiful role” with her friend and Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani co-star Kunal Roy Kapur; she did not hesitate a bit and jumped on board with enthusiasm.

“Having shot for four movies, my acting and especially my Hindi diction, have improved a lot,” quips the girl, who inspite of her half-foreign origins, dubs for herself.

Evelyn will be seen making her debut with a funky role in the comedy From Sydney With Love releasing in the first week of August. Directed by veteran filmmaker Pramod Chakravorty’s grandson Prateek Chakravorty, the film’s songs and promos have already gained good popularity with the youth.

The girl is also working hard towards her first full-length lead in T-Series’ next tentatively titled Class of 2013. She plays a glamorous dream girl in the movie, which happens to be the directorial debut of Super Cassettes icon Bhushan Kumar’s enterprising wife Divya Khosla Kumar.

That apart, Evelyn plays a very spiritual girl opposite Prateik Babbar in Issaq and a sexy ditz in Ayan Mukerji’s Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani; the Ranbir Kapoor-Deepika Padukone starrer under Karan Johar’s banner Dharma Productions.
