For a long time the following image was displayed in different parts of the country to promote and advertise to make people of India proud to join the Indian Army.

112069311_64d9d5305e_z

For the last couple of days, a new picture is appearing on the internet as an advertisement that is currently displayed in Shillong, featuring 9 Bollywood actresses (Priyanka Chopra, Priety Zinta, Simmi Garewal, Chitrangada Singh, Celina Jaitley, Amrita Singh, Gul Panag, Anushka Sharma, and Sakshi Tanwar, all Army Officer’s daughters), and urging the people to join the Indian Army. Though I am not sure whether this image is a genuine one or a fake (as though the official site of “Join the Indian Army” is mentioned on the banner, there is nothing on the website relating to this). Also, there is no word from any of the above celebrities of have having given their consent of the advertisement (though I feel that they would not really oppose to such a thing).

After reading a couple of articles on the net relating to this picture, and I realized that this advertisement is more to promote a girl child in the Indian Army than an advertisement to join the Army, so in that case I feel this banner should have had a mention of AWWA rather than of “Join Indian Army” on the banner.

Anyways, if this is a true image, then it is a nice and an innovative way to urge people to join the Indian Army. All I can say is that, this advertisement is in a way a good representation of the exposure the kids of army personnel (I can say this, because even I am an Army officer’s son) get in their upbringing which thereby helps them emerge as winners in the field that they choose in their career.

Overall, I am surprised to such an initiative, and to a certain extent happy as well as Indian Army is getting innovative. And most of all is that this allows the kids of Army personnel (in this case these actresses), to contribute to the Indian Army, probably to which they owe a lot as it rightly pointed out by Gul Panag in one of her tweets.

About the join army ‘ad’.Whether in jest or not,I have no problem with it.I owe 100% of what I am to my AF upbringing. Proud of it. @rwac48

dutt_1363847508Sanjay Dutt has been sentenced to a 5-year jail term under the case of illegal possession of arms in the 193 Mumbai blasts case. A little over 5 years back in 2007, Sanjay Dutt was cleared of the conspiracy charges in the 1993 Mumbai blasts, but was found guilty of illegal possession of an automatic rifle and a pistol. Since this case was still under the Supreme Court Dutt was granted bail, and has been out since then. Now he needs to surrender within a month and complete the sentence term (he has already served 18 months in jail earlier). Though this a sad news for all his fans, but as an Indian I am proud that the supreme court is playing its role well and even prosecuting high profile people. Though the time frame can be a topic for debate as it has been nearly 20 years since those blasts took place, but as we say better late than never, it is good that criminals like Yakub Menon have been given death sentence. This does raise a little hope in the judicial system of India.

The complete news articles are as follows:

1993 Mumbai blasts: Five-year jail term for Sanjay Dutt

The Supreme Court on Thursday upheld Bollywood actor Sanjay Dutt’s conviction in the 1993 Mumbai blasts case and sentenced him to five years imprisonment. Dutt, who has already served 18 months of his term in prison, has four weeks to surrender.

The Supreme Court today also dismissed 1993 Mumbai blasts mastermind Yakub Memon’s appeal against his death sentence even as it reduced the punishment of 10 other accused to life imprisonment from death sentence considering the fact that they have spent 20 years in jail. It also upheld life sentences awarded to 17 others.

The apex court said there is no case for probation to Dutt because of the gravity of the crime. Dutt can file a review petition.

Dutt, who was convicted under the Arms Act for illegally possessing weapons, had been awarded six years imprisonment by the TADA (Terrorists and Disruptive Activities (Prevention) Act) court.

However, the apex court reduced the sentence from six years to five years. This effectively means that Dutt will be in jail for three years and six months as he has already undergone 18 months imprisonment.

“He will have to serve another three-and-a-half year sentence. We had prepared him for the same,” Dutt’s lawyer Satish Maneshinde told reporters.

“We will wait for a copy of the Supreme Court judgement and then decide the further course of action,” he said. “He is a strong man and will fight back.”

In 2007, Dutt was cleared of conspiracy charges in the Mumbai serial blasts but was found guilty of illegal possession of an automatic rifle and a pistol.

The actor was the most high-profile among 100 people found guilty in the bombings trial. The 1993 Mumbai attacks were ordered by India’s most wanted man, Dawood Ibrahim, police say.

The court also came down heavily on Mumbai police and customs officers at all levels. But for their wrong actions the 1993 bombings could have been avoided.

A TADA court had in 1993 awarded death sentence to 12 people, including Memon. One of them has passed away. The court had also sentenced 20 to life imprisonment and 46 others, including Dutt, were given varying terms of imprisonment.

The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) had faced flak for not challenging the TADA court verdict acquitting Sanjay Dutt of charges under the TADA but convicting him under the Arms Act and sentencing him to six years imprisonment.

However, in the course of the hearing of his appeal, the CBI had opposed the actor’s plea challenging his conviction and sentencing.

For a man who reportedly took to drugs in high school, hobnobbed with India’s most-wanted criminals and whose private life constantly made headlines, Dutt retains the sympathy of the industry and millions of fans who see him as a victim of his star lineage and own fame.

Dutt is the son of actor and former Congress minister late Sunil Dutt. His sister Priya is a Congress MP in the Lok Sabha. Their mother, late Nargis, had also been a nominated member of the Rajya Sabha.

Dutt married longtime girlfriend Manyata in February 2008 and became a father to twins two years later. He has a daughter Trishala from his first marriage.

Through all his troubled years, Dutt managed to stay relevant in Bollywood, with his biggest hits being the two-series Munnabhai films in which he played a funny, do-gooder gangster.

Dutt wasn’t present in the court and was represented by his sister Priya.

A series of 13 car bomb blasts had ripped through Mumbai on March 12, 1993, resulting in the death of 257 people and injuries to 713. The locations that were targeted included fisherman’s colony in Mahim Causeway, Zaveri Bazaar, Plaza Cinema, Century Bazaar, Katha Bazaar, Hotel Sea Rock, Sahar Airport, Air India building, Hotel Juhu Centaur, the Bombay Stock Exchange Building and the Passport Office.

Not linked to 1993 blasts: Dutt

In August 2012, Dutt told the Supreme Court that his offence of possessing a rifle and ammunition was not linked to the 1993 Mumbai bomb blasts.

Appearing for the actor, senior counsel Harish Salve told the apex court bench of Justice P. Sathasivam and Justice B.S. Chauhan that he came to possess the weapon in September 1992 when his father Sunil Dutt and sisters were facing threats as the senior Dutt’s help to Muslim victims annoyed some.

Salve said that the only caveat in putting Sanjay Dutt to trial under an anti-terror law was if there was any “inextricable linkage” between his possessing arms with the serial bomb blasts.

He said that this was the least common denominator that could be used for seeing any such linkage. He said that there was no linkage between Dutt possessing a rifle and the 1993 bomb blasts.

The court was told that Dutt had never met blasts accused Tiger Memon and all that he knew about him was hearsay from Samir Hingora in whose under-production film “Sanam” he was playing a role.

The senior counsel told this to the apex court hearing Dutt’s appeal challenging his conviction under the Arms act and sentence of six years awarded to him. The actor’s appeal challenging his conviction was being heard by the apex court.

As Salve commenced the arguments, the court pointed out that there were objections that the “CBI filed appeal against all making an exception for Sanjay Dutt”.

The court was apparently referring to senior counsel Jaspal Singh casting shadows on the impartiality of the CBI by not appealing against the TADA court verdict in Dutt’s case.

Jaspal Singh, who appeared for accused Yakub Memon, said that the CBI did not oppose the bail of Dutt who had confessed his guilt and weapons were recovered from him. (With agency inputs) ..”

1993 Mumbai blasts: SC upholds Yakub Memon’s death sentence

“The Supreme Court on Thursday upheld the death sentence of Yakub Abdul Razak Memon in the 1993 Mumbai blasts case and commuted the death sentence of 10 others. The apex court also upheld the conviction of Bollywood actor Sanjay Dutt under the Arms Act in the terror attack and sent him to five years in prison.

However, the apex court reduced the sentence from six years to five years. This effectively means that Dutt will be in jail for three years and six months as he has already undergone 18 months imprisonment.

While confirming the death sentence of Yakub Memon, the bench of Justices P. Sathasivam and B.S. Chauhan said he and other members of the Memon family had played a predominant role in the execution of the conspiracy that led to 13 serial bomb blasts in Mumbai on March 12, 1993, claiming 257 lives and leaving 713 injured.

While commuting the death sentence of the 10 other convicts to life imprisonment, the court said that they were mere subservients in the execution of the conspiracy.

The humble and underprivileged background of these 10 accused, who were mere instruments in the hands of “principal perpetrators”, were counted as mitigating circumstances by the court.

The court said that if Memons were the archers of the conspiracy these 10 were just arrows. The judges also slammed Pakistan for aiding and abetting the acts of terrorism in infringement of international obligation as a member of United Nations.

The court also came down heavily on Mumbai police and customs officers at all levels. But for their wrong actions the 1993 bombings could have been avoided.

A TADA court had in 1993 awarded death sentence to 12 people, including Memon. One of them has passed away. The court had also sentenced 20 to life imprisonment and 46 others, including Sanjay Dutt, were given varying terms of imprisonment.

An anti-terror TADA (Terrorists and Disruptive Activities (Prevention) Act) court had in 1993 awarded death sentence to 12 people, including Memon. One of them has passed away.

A series of 13 car bomb blasts had ripped through Mumbai on March 12, 1993, resulting in the death of 257 people and injuries to 713. The locations that were targeted included fisherman’s colony in Mahim Causeway, Zaveri Bazaar, Plaza Cinema, Century Bazaar, Katha Bazaar, Hotel Sea Rock, Sahar Airport, Air India building, Hotel Juhu Centaur, the Bombay Stock Exchange Building and the Passport Office.

The TADA court trial court of Justice P.D. Kode had commenced the trial on November 4, 1993, and pronounced its 4,230-page verdict on July 31, 2007.

The bombings, police say, were carried out at the behest of gangster Dawood Ibrahim to avenge the destruction of the Babri Masjid in 1992 and subsequent riots in which many Muslims were killed. A special anti-terrorism court had convicted 100 people in the attacks. (With agency inputs) ..”


Finally Dill Mill Gayye is going to end. The show has been a favorite of people of different age groups all over the world. Now it is the time for it to bid adieu to all the fans. Many are disappointed; many are not since they had already stopped watching the show because of the turn of events in the past few months on the show. Even I have not been a regular viewer of the show anymore but have tried and kept myself updated about it. Recently the show celebrated it’s 700th episode, and now the news is that it will end in by 15th of October. In fact as per the latest news the show has been shifted for two more weeks and will end on 29th October. Also what is being heard is that the old gang is going to come back on the show for the last couple of weeks. I am not really sure if I am happy or sad at the ending because I have almost cut off from the show, so not really disappointed but yes I do have some great memories of the show as well, which I will definitely miss. In fact if the show has an happy ending that is that the two main characters are together (I guess everyone is expecting that) then certainly I would be looking forward for the third season, or the second as the producers are calling it. I have a piece of news on that over here.

One of the articles on that is over here:

“Dil Mil Gayye era ends on October 15th…!

Star One long running show Dil Mill Gayye will now wind up on October 15th…

Cinevistaa’s long running show on Star One Dil Mill Gayye has completed its successful run, and will be bidding adieu on October 15th. The story which started on a full filled note has a huge fan following and for the favorite on screen pairs they have offered. The latest is that DMG will now be making way for Rajesh Chaddha’s Yeh Ishq Haaye which launches on October 18th.

Siddhart Malhotra confirmed the news saying “Yes, it is going to be an end of an era for us. We will think of coming back with season 2 if the channel and viewers want it.”

Ironically, the show celebrated the milestone of completion of 700 episodes just yesterday. We hear that the production house is planning to host a grand farewell party soon. As for the loyal viewers , they will miss indeed their favorite show now !

Yeh Ishq Haaye produced by Panglosean Entertainment has Yashdeep Nain, Raunaq Ahuja and Shrishti Rode playing lead.”

The main articles can also be read at the India-forums and the Star One site.

Here is the news of the show closure being postponed for 2 weeks:

“Temporary respite for DMG, old gang back

STAR One and Cinevistaas want to make sure that as their longest running show, Dill Mill Gayye nears its closure for its loyal viewers to watch the best.
The show that was to end on 15 October has now got an extension of two weeks and DMG will now end on 29 October. What can be looked forward to is that the old gang is coming back on the show and bid adieu to their fans in style, thereby leaving them mesmerised and spell bound. However, viewers’ favourite Dr. Shilpa will make an early exit from the show as her track will conclude. Amongst the old gang Anjali (Sunaina Gulia), Atul (Pankit Thakker), Keerti (Sonia Singh) and Shubhankar (Ayaz Khan) are going to make a comeback.

Dr. Shilpa will come to know of Armaan and Riddhima’s one night stand. She decides to leave Arman after she realises his obsession for Riddhima. Her exit will air sometime soon.

Creative Head, Palki Malhotra says, “Fans have gone berserk after the news of DMG ending has reached them. The response has been terrible and amazing at the same time. Going by the brickbats we have been receiving from the viewers, we had thought they would welcome the news but they have been demanding not to end the show. Both the channel and production house have been flooded with mails and text messages from fans. Guess old habits die hard. Going by the popular demand and considering the kind of popularity DMG enjoys, the channel has decided to extend it so that we can justify the old gang returning on the show and the conclusion. Time and again, I have said that DMG started as a happy show so it ought to have a happy ending too. With the old doctors returning, we are looking forward for the show to end with same gusto and madness.”

Palki feels that the attempt to try infusing a different flavour into the show worked against the show. She explains, “DMG never had a story to tell initially. It was a moment driven show always. Later fans started demanding us to introduce a definite story to it and adhering to it we focused on the love angle of Armaan. We thought it will interest other audience too apart from the youth but it backfired. I won’t say the show is doing bad but just that the TRPs have dipped. We did try to salvage the situation by bringing back Karan Singh Grover and Shilpa Anand but couldn’t win back our viewers.”

Dr. Shilpa said, “My track will end soon and I will exit after realising that Armaan is obsessed with Riddhima. I enjoyed playing Dr. Shilpa more than Riddhima. Shilpa’s character has a lot of variety to offer and even the look was appreciated by the audience and my fans.”

Catch the last of Dill Mill Gayye as the entire gang comes back on the show as it reaches it last leg to entertain its fans for that one last time, Monday to Friday, 8:00 pm on STAR One.”

I found another article that jisted the great moments of the show so far. And I thought that it was a very good piece of work and I liked it very much so thought to share it over here:

“DMG’s ENDING! Can’t believe it!:( So it”s kind of confirmed AR will re-unite!:) But why can’t they continue showing their married life!:(

Miss you DMG!:(

It started out 3 years ago…In the Basketball court, with Armaan-Riddhima’s fights, with Atul, Anjali, Sapna along side…Love kindled between AR and AA…

Enter Rahul-Muskaan….The two would-be obstacles in AR’s love story….The legendary bike race between Armaan and Rahul, and Riddhima’s long awaited confession which came shortly after Armaan’s accident….The golden days of DMG….

The Armaan-Muskaan part, which lead to AR’s sad break up…The fire escape fight….Armaan going to Kasauli and Riddhima trying to bring him back….

The Holi episode…A drunk Riddhima confesses her feelings yet again…But then she’s RIDDHIMA, so she had to deny being in love with Armaan…!!

Finally, after cake fights, basketball matches and another numerous fights, Shilpa aka Riddhima leaves the show…

Enter Sukriti as Riddhima…From the ‘No Masti, No Shaitani, Only Dosti Nibhaani’ regime, to the final patch up, AR were back together with A BANG!:D

The amazing time which followed contained, the gang getting suspended, RM’s fake marriage, AR trying to tell Shashank the truth, my favorite part-the Bomb episode, where Armaan sticks by Riddhima’s side….

Enter Nikita Malhotra….Armaan’s old best friend….And soon after, Abhimanyu Modi…The evil doctor/administrator of Sanjeevani….

From the Armaan-Abhimanyu tiffs, to the Save Sanjeevani Concert….Everything added to the excitement…

But soon after, Rahul left Muskaan as Mayank left the show…!:(

Finally the time came, when Shashank came to know about AR….As expected, he didn’t approve….What followed, was Armaan battling for his love…With help from Radio City..:P and US of course, AR finally came back together!:) The Shashank-Armaan debate and the Bhook-Hadtal…!:D Armaan got his love back!:)

The Valentine’s party-A celebration for AR’s victory!:D….Rahul returns and Abhi-Nikki love kindles fire…

Calling Armaan’s parents….Enter Billy and Ananya….Two people which could spoil everything all over again….But our Armaan handled it all well!!:D

And another sad news approaches….Sukriti decided to leave the show!:(
Enter Jennifer as Riddhima….The Roka episode, the Armaan-Abhimanyu boxing match, Armaan’s legendary dialogue which we got to hear many times thanks to Riddhima’s flashbacks-

“Main Armaan Mallik…Riddhima Gupta se vaada karta hun…Ki main usse bahut pyar karta hun….”

Awwww…!:)

Kirti-Shbhankar’s wedding( At least SOMEONE got the expected HAPPY ENDING!:O), the PARI incident…And another BIG fight between AR…

What followed was, Armaan’s accident, resulting in 2 years memory loss…!:( From the first meeting, to the last, he forgot everything connected to Riddhima….

Riddhima’s dilemma to see the love of her life treating her like an annoying ‘Teacher’ and flirting with other girls as well….Her Talli behavior in Rahul’s farewell party….

Soon after, Armaan is struck with the bitter truth-It’s not 2007 anymore, and he was once engaged to the Teacher-Riddhima….

Riddhima’s attempt to help Armaan pass in his internship exam….Which resulted in her getting slapped by Shashank and then getting suspended….But the gang intervened….Kidnapped her and brought her to Armaan who found out the truth just in time!:)

The amazing proposal made by Armaan on his knees in the path lab( Why do all their special moments take place in such places?)…And the decision of getting married within a month…

And then came the WORST episode DMG’s ever brought us….21st September, 2009….AR getting seriously injured….Ending Season 1 of DMG with the final call of ‘Humse hasi…..Jaane kahaan dill mill gayye…’ with AR being shown in the OT….

I’m clueless what happened after that, since I quit watching the show for those 3-4 months which followed….All I knew were the names of the new interns:P-Tamanna, Naina, Siddhant, Yuvraaj and Jitendra-Prasad(JP)….The true AR and DMG fans succeeded though, yet again, in getting Riddhima back in the show…

1st Jan, 2010, Riddhima was back with a bang…Although no one knew what happened to Armaan….And the drama began again….The fights with Siddhant…And then she finally coming to know the truth about Armaan….

The trip to Panchgini to get Armaan back, and the unfortunate HYPOTHERMIA drama….Which resulted in Sid-Riddhima getting married…

Armaan’s awaited comeback happened soon after….The brutal way he came to know the truth, and then his withdrawal at losing his love….

Enter Shilpa aka Shilpa Anand…And the life returned after a long time….

But Riddhima could never forget who she really loved…And although Shilpa fell for Armaan(understandable:P), Riddhima got married to Sid for the second time and Armaan accepted he had lost, AR still couldn’t live with these facts…

The honeymoon episode, where it was proved Riddhima is still in love with Armaan, and the still on-going battle between the girl’s mind and heart, is something we are watching right now…

But it’s impossible to end this epic show in just a matter of the next 2 WEEKS!:(

But well…

I don’t know why I wasted my time writing such a long summary of our favorite show…But it’s my way giving a farewell to that one Indian soap which kept me hooked for 3 whole years….

I know this is pretty lame, DMG had to end someday…But well, it was the only show which could keep me hooked to my seat, come-what-may, for the past 3 years, right from the beginning to the very end…!

Bye-bye DMG! Love you-AR, AA, RM, AN, Sid too….And I kind of liked Naina as well!:P

But yeah….Loved every part of this show-except the beginning of Season 2 without AR….:/

Guys please comment on this! Bahut mehnat se likha hai!:P

Long live DMG!

Hope you return with a Season 3!:D

-Shrutika!”


Well again the questions are out, something what I had written in my earlier post as well. I have found a few articles over the net that raise questions like what exactly is going on the minds of the creatives. For example why was Shilpa Anand called back on the show? I guess the writers themselves don’t know what is going in story, or what needs to be written ahead. It looks like plan each episode after the previous one has been shot. I really don’t want to write more on this, I would rather just put those articles here for everyone.

Here is the first artice:

”TellyChakkar had earlier reported that there were problems cropping up on the sets of Dill Mill Gayye as actors were reportedly not happy with the way their tracks were moving. The latest is Sid’s character will now be shown negative in the show.

A little birdie informs, “Now the show will introduce a new twist and Sid will be shown negative. The track will focus again on Armaan and Riddhima and the latest promo being aired hints at the adultery angle. Riddhima will probably commit a mistake and will admit it to Sid and that will prompt him to turn negative. It has also been shown that Riddhima probably has a soft corner for Armaan. The new track will also mean sidelining Shilpa’s character even further. However the production house has not completely nailed this track down but in all probability Sid will turn negative. This will mean more complications in the lives of Riddhima and Armaan.”

We called up Karan Wahi who plays Sid to confirm the news but he seemed totally clueless. Says Karan, “I have absolutely no idea about this track. I have not been shooting for the past two days with them and I don’t know where the story is heading because I haven’t been informed about it yet.” When quizzed about the promo and the adultery angle, Karan says,” I have shot for a promo which is on air but I do not know why or what is it that makes Riddhima apologise! I am just aware of a possible triangle in the show. Even if Sid were to turn negative they would have informed me.”

Palki Malhotra Creative Head, Cinevistaas remained unavailable for comment.”

Here is the second artice:

”Is Cinevistaas set out to make mockery out of marriage?

Cinevistaas’s Dil Mil Gaye airing on Star One has recently undergone some changes in their story lines. After the first marriage sequence of Siddhant and Riddhima, the couple was set out to re-marry again with their own consent. The second marriage sequence had been aired last week. Unfortunately, there have been many rumors coming out in regards to the upcoming track within this popular youth based show.

Recent rumors indicate that Siddhant and Riddhima’s future is going to be short lived. Well where did the rumors come from? Well according to a video posted by the Creative of Dil Mil Gaye, Amita Devadiga on Cinevistaas’s Official Facebook Fan Page, indicate that the second marriage of Siddhant & Riddhima’s is about the break! According to a statement made on the Facebook page by Amita Devadiga, hey guys, here is the new dmg promo which is not on air as yet…pls have a look cause it says that ur fav couple armaan and riddhima are going to be together forever….!!!”, the promo seems to pose various different questions and predictions. The promo questions whether Armaan and Riddhima will have an extra marital affair, which is the prime reason for Riddhima’s marriage breaking up.

Rumors have also presented a question on whether Siddhant (Karan Wahi) will be shown turning negative. Where does this leave Dr. Armaan and Dr. Shilpa’s track? Well that is a major question to be asked! The show has already made a mockery out of marriage, which is a pure and sentimental bond between a man and a women. The show has questioned the feelings of Indian Women who believe in marriage. Will Indian Society be able to accept Riddhima’s future affair being a “pure mistake” during her married life?

As of now the show Is this track really going to take place or is just to create the hype to gain television ratings? Will the Amita Devadiga and her team continue with the “rumored storyline” or will they go on to provide their audience with a sensible and mature track which abides by Indian Society today?”


The story of Dill Mill Gayye seems to have haywire. I really don’t know what everyone is up to over there. The creatives are destroying the show more and more after every episode. There is a lot of confusion let in the minds of the viewers after the end of the episodes.

For a start why are Sid and Riddhima getting married again? And why is Anjali being called back for the marriage episodes. Why have the old new interns Yuvi (Sehban Azim) and Naina (Neha Julka) back on the show. So far Shilpa’s role is not looking any substantial; in fact it looks as if it is getting reduced even further. Agreed that Karan Singh Grover is not available for a few days because he is participating in another reality show, but this does not mean that the creatives don’t move the story ahead, and just buy time by showing stupid and unnecessary stuff.

Well I am now really frustrated watching the show, which at one time I could not miss at any cost. The character of the leading character Riddhima has been sabotaged so badly that I don’t think that the original viewers are interested in watching the show anymore. Then on top of all this there is news of Karan Wahi quitting the show, and many others. All I can say is that the show seems to be going anywhere.

I can go on writing all this down but I would prefer to just add a few updates from various sites, which I have found out to be good information. One of those sites is here.

“I GOT A NEWS DON’T KNOW WHETHER IT’S TRUE OR NOT
Riddhimma herself will leave the marriage n search for Armaan n this will result in More problems between sidmaa n the marriage wont happen eventually…

Riddhimma will accept that she still loves armaan……!

This Track has been introduced cos Sid has decided to quit the show permanently n they will be showing triangle love story between armaan shilpa n ridhimma……..!

This Triangle love story wasnt supposed to happen but because Karan wahi has decided to quit suddenly n Cvs are not in any mood to get another character to play sid,they have decided to end the character itself.

Sid will be truly pissed off by riddhimma’s reaction for Armaan n this will pave a way for an end to their relationship.”

Another News:

“MANY IMPORTANT NEWS FOR ALL

Another News:

“Sid and Riddhima are all set to tie the knot in Star One’s Dill Mill Gayye and with Sehban, Neha and Anjali returning to the show it feels like a ‘happy family’. But if gossip mongers are to be believed there is trouble brewing between the actors. The latest buzz that we hear is Jennifer Winget and Karan Wahi were not happy with the way their tracks were heading and had allegedly threatened to quit the show.
A little birdie tells us, “Ever since Shilpa Anand returned in the show, her track had been gaining a lot of importance. Jennifer and Karan were not happy with the way their tracks were progressing and felt they were not getting enough screen presence. They demanded more footage from the production house and even threatened to quit the show if the need arose. The current wedding track has been added keeping their demands in mind whereas Shilpa’s track has been cut drastically. She is just a mere figure in the show.”

Jennifer rubbished the rumour and said, “I wonder where you get all this news from? There is no truth to it.”

Palki Malhotra, creative head, Dill Mill Gayye echoed Jennifer’s words and said, “This is absolutely wrong. Nothing of this sort has happened.”

Shilpa however agreed that her track no longer had any importance in the show. Shilpa says, “I don’t know anything. I don’t know what has been happening but yes it is true I have no track left in the show now. I think it is the channel that should decide the track changes and not artistes. I don’t get into all of this. I come, work and leave.” “


After Dr. Atul and Dr. Naina it is the turn of two other interns that is Dr. Yuvraj and Dr. Suvarna to exit from the show. Although I got this news about a week back, but could not get the time to write it down here. Today in the show they showed both these interns shifting to a different location (branch in the USA), which means that they have said goodbye to the show. So I thought of finally writing it down.

But one must say that a lot is happening in the show thesedays, I am not really sure if it is good for the show or not. Now the situation is that the show which originally showed the life of the interns only has two interns left, that is Sid and JP. And out of these two Sid does not look like an intern anymore. I do not know where is the show exactly heading towards. But yes I must say that by getting Shilpa Anand back on the show the producers have managed to get a lot of lost viewers back (including me). It has been sometime that she is back on the show, but her identity has not been revealed as yet, so who knows she might be entering as a new intern.

Well coming back to the original topic, two more people have left the show. To be honest I don’t think there is much left in the show and with just focussing on the main characters and twisting the story, the creatives are just turning DMG into just one of the other boring daily soaps. Well I just hope that leaving both of them specially Yuvraj (I think he played his part very well till now) would be a correct decision.

In the end all that I can say is that I wish both these actors best of luck and for the show all I can say is, Keep watching!

Here is the original post where I had got this news from:

“Madhura Naik and Sehban Azim are the latest actors to quit Dill Mill Gaye. The show post leap seems to be undergoing a lot of changes. While some actors are being given a breather, some are willingly bowing out. New characters are being brought in, old faces are being recalled — in short there is a lot happening in DMG.

Sources say both Naik and Azim were not happy with their roles for some time now and there were discussions about the same but nothing seems to have come out of it. The actors confirmed to TellyChakkar about their exit. Now how will the story progress, considering both of them played an important role in the show? Sources say that the track will show both of them going abroad for further studies. Meanwhile, Shilpa Anand (who earlier played Ridhhima) is back in the show.

With so many entries and exits it now appears that fans will keep watching out of sheer curiosity.”


Well I am very excited in writing this post, but I am just praying that this news is true. Well I have found this article from the source I have believed on for the past year or so. Since it comes from this source I do believe that this is finally going to happen. Shilpa Anand is coming back to the show as per the source. Not as Riddhima but as a different doctor, to be paired with Karan Singh Grover.

If this happens this will be great news for the Dill Mill Gayye fans. I just hope that this is not a rumor or marketing stunt from the creatives, as otherwise it will hurt a lot of hearts around. I had also written a post sometime back, on the possibility of her comeback, but was not sure that if it was really true.
Here is that article:

“As You all know Star one has confirmed that Our Shilpa Is finally back in dmg. This is what i got from my source.
I do not have frndz working for media or anything for that matter, but I
have sources who themselves are KaSh fans but with deeper connection with
the parties concerned. Since no media is involved in my matters, it takes
time to get a concrete news. Nevertheless, I have some good news for you
guys

A) News from Shilpa’s front
Shilpa has given her consent for DMG after that long meeting that took place
few days ago. Shilpa and her mum were happy about Sidharth Malhotra’s way of
dealing things. The meeting was held to discuss about Shilpa’s character,
future track and her contract. Karan was present throughout the meeting.
Apparently both the parties are happy. And Finally the contract has been
signed. Shilpa will start shooting in 3-4 days. It might take less than 3-4 days, but YES CONTRACT HAS BEEN SIGNED.

B) News from CVs side
Sidharth Malhotra is quite confident about SA’s come back. CVs wanted to
bring SA as a new character named Dr Henna. But Shilpa suggested to change
her character’s name to Dr Shilpa. So, may be Shilpa’s onscreen name will be
Shilpa only. There were discussions regarding Shilpa’s entry as Ridhima’s
step sister. But this is not 100% confirmed, since Jennifer might leave once
Shilpa enters. And incase Jennifer sticks to the show, according to Sidharth
Malhotra two parallel storylines will be show, one a KaSh love story and the
other Shilpa-Ridhima’s step sister bonding and all.”

Well for a long time I have been reading and also have received a lot of comments that Shilpa should come back, she was the best Riddhima and many such more. I would be lying if I would say that I too did not feel the same thing. Though as I have always written that neither of the other two Riddhima’s disappointed me, but yes neither of the two could create the magic Shilpa did on screen.

I guess it is very good that she is coming as a different character and not Dr.Ridhhmia because, the Creatives have already damaged completely the character since the time she has left. Also I am very sure now people will love to see Karan and Shilpa together, much more than they would have been seeing Armaan and Riddhima.

Ending this post I just hope that all this news is true. I had stopped watching the show a couple of months back, but if she returns I will definitely come back to the show.


Now it is heard that Miley Jab Hum Tum will go the Dill Mill Gayye way, and take a three year leap. Another thing that MJHT follows is that it too removes it’s characters from the first season. Jas Karan (Uday) and Abhishek (Benji) have to bear the brunt of having been dropped from the show. Here is the main article.

“Miley Jab Hum Tum one of the most popular serials on air currently is in for a change. The makers have decided to go in for a season 2 for this youth show. In view of this change, two of the most popular actors Jas Karan (Uday) and Abhishek (Benji) have been dropped from the second season.

Sources have informed TellyChakkar that there will be a major twist in the story line. One of the popular characters amongst the four (Mayank, Nupur, Gunjan & Samrat) will die in an accident followed by a three-year leap in the serial. If sources are to be trusted, this leap is going to happen in the next couple of weeks.

If this was shocking enough, think of how to react to a Miley Jab Hum Tum sans Jas Karan and Abhishek Sharma. Their characters Uday and Benji are no longer there in the storyline for the second season.

Sources inform us that both the actors were told of the development and the fact that this was a creative team’s decision yesterday.

Adds a hurt Jas Karan, “This is a very unfortunate development. We had been hearing about a leap in the show and thought that there would be newer characters along with us. I never really thought of being axed in season 2.” The popular actor still cannot believe what happened and says, “They tried the same in Dill Mill Gaye but had to bring back Karan Singh Grover on popular demand. I hope the creative team here has a plan B in case the new season 2 plan does not work. Whatever it is, I wish the team all the very best.”

While Abhishek confirmed the news that he will not be there in the second season of Miley Jab Hum Tum, he refused to comment any further.

However, the mystery of who is going to die in season 2 still continues!

The current track focuses on Mayank and Nupur’s misunderstandings, while Samrat and Gunjan have kissed and made up!”

Well I can only say is that hopefully Miley Jab Hum Tum does not fall apart as Dill Mill Gayye did. After all this has happened, one can only say that probably instead of going to the next season, they should shut down their shows and allow new ones to enter. With the season 2 no one is bringing anything new in fact they are losing almost everything.


Well I was hearing the news for quite a long time, that Neha Julka aka Dr.Naina is planning to leave Dill Mill Gayye. Well now I have the confirmed news on it, and I am pasting that article below.

“Neha Juhlka who essayed the role of Naina in Star One’s Dill Mill Gaye will not be seen anymore..

Neha Jhulka who essayed the role of Naina in Star One’s Dill Mill Gaye gained a lot of fan following in a short span of time, and her chemistry with Yuvi aka Sehban Azim has been appreciated a lot.Neha has now decided to call it quits to Dill Mill Gaye, as she is not creatively satisfied.

When contacted, Neha told TellyBuzz, “Yes, it is true that I have opted out of Dill Mill Gaye. I have nothing against anyone, but it is just that I am not happy with the way my character has shaped up; I am not getting whatever was promised when I got into the show”.

“I would want to thank all my fans, for all the support and love that I have got. I understand that they have been desperate to get Armaan (Karan Singh Grover) and Riddhima (Jennifer Winget) back in the show, and I am happy that they have got their leads back. But I somewhere felt that the creative team could not do justice to my character. I had a word with them, and they were nice enough to let me off my contract”, informs Neha.

Neha wants to get back to her first love, i.e. modelling. “I want to take a break for at least 3-4 weeks, before I take up anything new. I want to take up some modelling assignments, also enjoy a vacation (smiles)”, she states.

Ask her whether she would get back to Dill Mill Gaye at any time, and she is quick to say, “I would love to. DMG is one serial that I have loved being part of, and if the creatives have something good planned in the future, I would surely come back”.

Naina will be shown moving out of Sanjeevani, while Yuvi will remain to be part of the show.”

I have stopped watching the show for sometime now. I was very disappointed with the things the way turned out. So it does not really matter a lot to me if she stays in the show or not. Though I must say that she not being on the show is a big loss. Anyways I wish Neha all the best for her future.


Well Dill Mill Gayye is back in business. Although the episodes are still disappointing, still with all the suspense of what wil happen next, the show has certainly garnered great TRPs. Also with the return of Karan Singh Grover back into the show, a lot of the viewers are also back. Though the track so far after his return has been disappointing, as everyone is expecting much different than what is happening, also it looks as if the producers are wasting a lot of time here and there in the show rather than showing any substantial content. Now there is only one quetion on everyone’s mind, Will Armaan and Riddhima be back together again?

I have been trying to get as much information I can on this. In the meanwhile I have found this article on the internet, so I am pasting it here for everyone to view.

Karan Singh Grover’s return has created a new twist in STAR One’s Dill Mill Gayye and also upped the show’s TRPs.

Now when Riddhima and Armaan have come face to face, everyone is thinking as what will happen and if Dr.Riddhima will leave Sid for her first love- Armaan.

An Indya source tells us, “The return of Dr. Armaan in Sanjeevani has already made Dr. Ridhima ( Jennifer Winget) a bit tensed as she is now married to Dr. Siddhant (Karan Wahi). Now Armaan wants to propose her so that they will get married very soon. Even Dr. Sid wants that Riddhima should get back her love. She is now slightly developing a soft corner for Sid.”

Further our source said that, “Armaan is in shock about Riddhima and Siddhant’s relationship and their marriage. His dreams of getting married to Riddhima will be over.”

We spoke to Jennifer Winget aka Dr.Riddhima, “She is an Indian woman and knows the values of marriage so she can’t dishonour this marriage with Sid. But at the same time she is also confused as what to do next because she hasn’t yet forgotten Armaan but at the same time she can forget all what Sid has done for her as he has saved her life during the marriage ceremony. Many fans of Dill Mill Gayye are asking me this same question whether I will break the marriage for Armaan. Well, now at this point, even I don’t know the script ahead.”

So don’t forget to watch Riddhima’s dilemma about choosing Armaan or Sid on Dill Mill Gayye every Monday at 8 pm only on STAR One.”


Dill Mill Gayye has been in news for a long time now, I mean for reasons apart from the episodes. They have been in news more about various issues, first both Jennifer Winget and Karan Singh Grover left the show. Later almost all the old interns followed. Then entered the new interns, well they were not accepted on the show that well. Then Jennifer returned and it looked as if the show will get back its TRPs but it did not. Then Karan also returned but Pankit left the show. With so much of happening on the show, still the show could not create the magic it had in the first season or I must say in its first year. I guess that is why this news of Shilpa Anand is surfacing. I have found two articles on and am pasting them here. The first one is:

“They tried everything under the sun to set the TRPs escalating for Dill Mill Gayye but nothing seemed to work. Apparently, post the exit of Karan Singh Grover, there was a constant dip in the TRPs and the once number one show of Star One was run over by other soaps. But recently, the channel and the production house buried their hatchet with KSG and brought him back on the show in a bid to win over the loyalists. And now we hear that the makers are also planning to recall the original Dr Riddhima (Shilpa Anand). Anand was replaced by Sukriti Khandpal who was replaced by Jennifer Winget.
Informs a source, “With the comeback of KSG, things are looking brighter and one hopes the show will regain its lost ground. And now Cinevistaas is planning to rope in Shilpa too. In the current track Dr Siddhant (Karan Wahi) is trying his best to bring back Dr Armaan and Dr Riddhima together whereas, on the other hand, Riddhima has decided to accept Siddhant in her life. Apparently, an actor close to Shilpa was requested to ask her if she would be interested in returning to the show. Shilpa was keen and now the ball is in the production house’ court which will revert to her once they are sure of everything. Earlier too they had approached her to return but things didn’t materialise as the actress wasn’t satisfied with the package deal. Buzz is also that Jennifer is planning to quit DMG .”

According to a source from the production house, “The loyal viewers of the show have been constantly demanding to bring back their favourite Dr Armaan and the original Dr Riddhima ever since they exited the show. Now that Karan is back, they want to see their favourite Riddhima too.”
When contacted Anand said, “They have approached me through a co-actor friend and I have agreed. But they are yet to get back to me on this.”

However, Palki, the writer of the show, rubbished the rumours saying, “No, Shilpa Anand is not returning.” And is Winget quitting? Palki said, “No, she is not.”

Winget refuted the buzz and said, “No it’s not true I am not quitting the show.”

Well, there is still a sliver of hope about Anand returning to her on-screen flame.”

The second article is:

Well, Dill Mil Gaye is again in the headlines, and this time the buzz is that the show is looking for a new Riddhima…

While the fans of Karan Singh Grover have not yet finished partying after getting their handsome hunk back again in Star One’s Dill Mil Gaye, there comes this news that the show will get back its original Riddhima i.e. Shilpa Anand.

For the uninitiated, Shilpa Anand and Karan Singh Grover shared an amazing on screen chemistry earlier, after which Shilpa was replaced by Sukirti Khandpal. After the stint of Sukirti as Riddhima, came in Jennifer Winget.

And now it looks as though there is every chance of Shilpa Anand getting back her prized role. And the reason stated is that Jennifer Winget’s contract apparently ends in April, and the actress has expressed her desire not to renew it any further.

According to our reliable source, “The production house asked an actor cum friend of Shilpa Anand to enquire whether she is interested in getting back to the show. Shilpa had a talk with the concerned people thro’ a series of text messages, and even expressed her desire to get back to the show. She has also given her quotation to the production house, and is now waiting for them to get back to her”.

Our source also tells us that, “It is not only Shilpa Anand who has been approached. Panchi Bora who was last seen in Kayamath is also in talks with the production house for the role of Riddhima. However, a decision has not been taken by the production house and channel”.

When we questioned Jennifer about her contract expiring, she said, “I don’t know from where these rumours are coming up. My contract is not ending in April, and I am not leaving DMG”.

Shilpa Anand on her part confirmed that, “Yes, the production house approached me thro’ one of my friends, to get back as Riddhima. I have accepted the offer and have sent them my quotation. They have to get back to me now”.

We contacted Panchi Bora who said, “Yes, I have been approached for Dill Mil Gaye. As of now, I am in Australia and will be talking to them once I get back”.

We tried calling Palki Malhotra, Script Head, but she remained unavailable.

We now wonder whether the ‘suspense’ factor that is always a part of all DMG news is actually its USP!

Panchi Bora

I don’t know if these are just roumours or is this true. Whatever it is, I guess it just might help the show. If Shilpa returns to the show it will be great as she was the best paired with Karan. Well if she does not and the CVS rope in Panchi for the role I guess then the viewers will get their fourth version of Riddhima. Also she will have to create the chemistry with Karan Singh Graover all over again. Well Shilpa will not have to work much on this as they had created magic last time around and everyone would expect the same again. Also if Jennifer leaves it might not be a bad option as people are not accepting her in the role given to her, I don’t know if there is any of her personal reasons behind the change of the character.

Anyways I hope whatever happens should happen for good. Just for the fact that I want Armaan and Riddhima together whether Riddhima is Jennifer or not.


Well this is a very old news, say about 15 days old but it is very shocking. I read an article about it sometime back, and I wanted to write about it but just did not get any time to do so in the last couple of weeks. This news is not only shocking but very dissapointing as well because I always felt that Armaan and Riddhima were the main starts of the show but Dr, Atul was the life of the show. He was like a special person in the show  who could handle any situation with his pranks and gigs. I guess that is one of the reasons for him being only one of the very few old interns to be retained in the new season.

I am pasting the article here which I had read (about his exit from the show) some time back, for everyone to view.

“No more Dr. Atul In Sanjeevani 
According to the latest news, its Pankit Thakker aka Dr. Atul Joshi of Dill Mill Gayye who has his stay on the show over. Yes Dr. Atul Joshi will soon make an exit from the show.

Pankit says ” Yes it is true , you guys will never be able to see Dr. Atul in the show henceforth , I know you guys must be feeling sad, but this is how life is ..” He adds ” For me personally it will be very difficult to move on as this has been my most memorable work that I have done so far. I had never thought I will be able to do comedy , but with this show I have grown as an artiste and as a person.; and the kind of love that u all have given me; I just cannot express it in words”
After the 2nd season had started Pankit was one among the few actors who were retained in the show from the 1st season. His exit will definitely be a shocker for the DMG fans and especially when Armaan is back in the show.

On a last note , Pankit says “I will try and keep myself happy with all the beautiful memories of DMG that I have stored in my heart. Love you all , miss me and please don’t forget me ! ”
Pankit we will definitely miss our champ in the show. All the best for your future projects ! ”

Well if not anything else it is a bit dishearting to know that Pankit will not be a part of the how anymore. He was like a breath of fresh air on the show. Although I had stopped watching the show in between and have only come back once Karan Singh Grover has returned to the show. But still I feel that it is not the same as it used to be earlier. Now that Karan was back it should have got back the old magic but it hasn’t because probably the old gang that used to be grea all the time is not there. And now Pankit has been the last person to leave as well. He has been an integral part of the show so far, and now after his departure the exuberance that he brought to thescreen is missing. I have now realised that Dill Mill Gayye was not only about Armaan and Riddhima, after Atul has left it still feels that there is something missing (even though now both Jennifer and Karan are back to the show).

Initially at the start of the show only Atul and Nikita (Pankit and Shweta) were retained from the old gang, then Anjali (Sunaina) made a guest apperaance in a couple of episodes. It was Shweta who left the show earlier and now Pankit also has decided to part ways. Though Karan and Jennifer are on the show from the old gang and then there is the new gang still there but it still feels that there is a lot missing, the magic that was there earlier that spark is not there anymore.

Now in the end I would just wish Pankit all the best for his future and future ventures, hopefully we will get to see him back on the screen soon, maybe on some other happeing show. In fact I have liked is work since the Special Squad days. I can only wish that he comes back to DMG maybe after sometime (I guess I am just being over optimistic).


Well now Dr. Armaan is back on the show. Thats great news for the fans who just watched the show because of him and Dr. Riddhima and also to the fans who kept on watching the show believing that their favourite stars will be back. I have found this update from the source I completely believe in. This will possibly explain the story that is in store for the viewers in the coming days.

“It’s Confirmed – Karan Singh Grover Back To Dill Mill Gaye 
Finally, the wait is over, and Karan Singh Grover gets back to Star One’s Dill Mill Gaye.

This time around, the loyal fans of Karan Singh Grover can surely rejoice as their favourite Dr. Armaan is getting back to Star One’s Dill Mill Gaye, produced by Cinevistaas.
Even the last time around, We had written a story which said that Karan would get back to the show, right on time to stop the marriage of Riddhima (Jennifer Winget) and Sid (Karan Wahi). But things did not fall in place for Karan then, and his comeback did not happen.

But now, he is certainly coming back and news has got a confirmation on this.

According to our source, “Talks about Karan Singh Grover’s comeback were on for quite a while now. But things got finalized day before yesterday, and the higher authorities from the channel and production house got into a consensus that they will bring Armaan back into the show”.

Now that Sid and Riddhima are married, and when Riddhima is gradually getting closer to her husband, things will take a drastic turn when she comes face to face with her first love, Armaan.

Elaborating on Armaan’s comeback our source states, “Armaan had been suffering from a psychotic disorder all this while, and he was not at all responding to treatment. He believed that Riddhima had not survived the accident, and this very thought of losing her had made him physically weak, and he did not have the urge to survive and fight the battle against the illness. But things took a different turn when Armaan saw Riddhima in Panchgani; this motivated him to get better in health. Even when the doctors thought that Armaan would never get back to sanity, Armaan’s health condition improved, and he is now back”.

“After getting fit, Armaan organizes this Nationwide Concert where his aim is to raise funds for people who suffer from such psychotic illness, and his last destination happens to be Mumbai. This is where he gets back to Sanjeevani”, adds our source.

“Armaan being what he is, comes back to Sanjeevani all excited, with a hope of getting back the love of his life. But he is completely shattered when he gets to know that Riddhima has in fact married Sid. The moment he realizes that Riddhima is married, he will want to leave the place forever. But it is Dr. Shashank who again makes him stay in the hospital, and Armaan joins Sanjeevani as a doctor”, further informs our source.

The coming track will see some breathtaking chemistry between Armaan, Riddhima and Sid. Now that Riddhima has transformed into the typical wife, she will also not be comfortable in the presence of Armaan. On the other hand, Armaan too will not like to come between Riddhima and Sid. But Armaan and Riddhima chemistry being so powerful will compel them to revisit their past memories, which can never be forgotten.

We got a confirmation from Palki Malhorta, Script Head, Cinevistaas, “Yes, Karan Singh Grover is back to the show. He will be starting shoot with us in a day or two. His comeback will really bring some great sequences between Armaan-Riddhima-Sid”.

As per the latest reports, Karan has already shot for his comeback promo that will go on air very soon. He will be starting shoot either today or tomorrow.

We also got to know that the news about a love track emerging between Armaan and Suvarna (Madhura Naik) is not true at all, and this development is not on the cards. Palki Malhotra too accepted that this was false news.

We tried calling Karan, but he remained unavailable.

The countdown to seeing Armaan on screen begins for sure now!!”

Well it is great to see the old stars back in the show and specially after the tragic end of season one. The promotional video shows Dr. Arman coming back with a bang, which is exactly the way he should have specially after the way he had left from the show few months back. But somehow I am not very happy that he is back. Well I know many people would not agree with me on this, but I do have a valid point. Well I have a been an ethusiastic viewer of this show from the very start. When the first season ended on atragic note and that way the second season started many people left watching their favourite show. I still hung with it in hope that the creative heads will bring back the main story (Armaan – Riddhima track) back at some point of time. But the way things turned out, I mean they way Dr. Riddhima returned and then whatever happened between her and Dr. Siddhant has left me very dissapointed. I was watching the show till their marriage took place and since that has happened and by reading all the articles of how Dr. Riddhima’s heart changes for Dr. Siddhant i have been heartbroken and have said goodbye to the show. But some how in just a couple of weeks, with the return of Karan Singh Grover onto the show I am back. But I just am not being able to connect with the show i used to about a year back. I am feeling that something is missing. May be Karan will get it back when he returns or maybe he won’t. All these questions are haunting me for the past few days. This is also one of the reasons that I had this news of his return almost 10 days back but I haven’t written about it as yet.

Once Jennifer returned I was very happy and was hoping for something great to happen, but to my shock something happened that I had never expected to happen. I felt like I had been cheated, in fact on the forums and other sites I read many people felt the same way. Now they are bringing back Karan on to the show. Their were rumours that now he will be paired with Suvarana Naik, the one who plays Dr. Siddhant’s sister. I just hope that all this is not true. Also the creatives claim that not with the show having three main characters that is Armaan, Riddhima and Siddhant, it will be great to see the chemistry between the three of them. Well I don’t believe in all this. I just feel that they have ruined a great love story. I always believed that it was like an ideal love story, a story that I would like that it would happen in my life.

I just hope that all goes well and in the end we have a happy ending, with that I mean both Armaan and Riddhima get back together. But for the moment i can only say that I am happy that now Karan is also back on the show, so I welcome him back with a mixed feeling.


Well I have been a great fan of this Serbian, but her performances in the recent past have left me really dissapointed. I found this update on her official site and it looked quite motivating. I just hope that she comes back with a bang in the French Open, the event which she had won two years back.

“I’m currently training in California with my new coach Heinz Gunthardt. Things are going well: I am learning a lot from him, and I’m feeling more confident about my game.

The timing of the New York exhibition couldn’t be any better, considering that we have just started working together: it gives us the opportunity to try some things out in a serious setting, but one that is not as pressured as a tournament.

After the New York exhibition it’s not too long before the two big tournaments in Indian Wells and Miami begin, and Heinz will be there too. After those events we will evaluate our work together and decide where to go from there. Hopefully it will be long-term.

I’ve been practising hard and haven’t done anything especially interesting in the evenings. I was very eager to get back onto the practice court as soon as my injury cleared up, and we haven’t wasted any time, practising twice a day most days.

We will monitor the health of my shoulder. We have to be careful, and it could influence how many tournaments I can enter in the next few months. I want to play more matches, but I must manage it properly.”


Well in recent times I have been reading a lot on Emma Watson. I found a blog that updates about her very regularly. In fact I have even started following this blog. In the meanwhile i came across this article both in the Mail as well as on this blog. I liked this article very much and i am pasting it over here.

“”‘You’ The Mail on Sunday, Daily Mail magazine, has an interview with the lovely Emma Watson about fair trade fashion and why she has chosen to involved herself in a project for People Tree, the fair trade fashion organization.

You’ve done acting, modelling, and now you’re designing. Is this the future for Emma Watson?
Oh, I don’t have any plans to be a designer. I’m doing this range because I really care about fair-trade and ethical fashion. I’m so pleased that I got involved, but I don’t want to take all the credit for being the designer because I haven’t trained as a designer or even gone to art college – in fact, I had no idea about the amount of work involved at the outset!

So this is not an Emma Watson clothing line?
I didn’t want this collection to be all about me. This is not a celebrity endorsement, it is about creating something that is genuinely a great idea and about making a difference through fashion.

How did the collaboration come about?
It was all because my friend, Alex Nicholls, was wearing this great People Tree T-shirt one day, which I liked. He then told me all about the company – he knows Safia and said that I should meet her. He set up an introduction and Safia and I just clicked. A couple of weeks later she got in touch with the idea of a teen range – they were doing older ranges and baby clothes but nothing in between – and asked if I’d like to help put it together. I said yes straight away.

Wise move, People Tree – every teen wants to dress like you!
I am very interested in fashion and I’ve been working a lot in the fashion world recently – it’s such an influential industry, so I knew that trying to help people, trying to alleviate poverty through a fashion line, could work. Fashion is a great way to empower people and give them skills; rather than give cash to charity you can help people by buying the clothes they make and supporting things they take pride in. It’s that simple.

Where did you get your design inspiration for the range?
I went through my summer wardrobe and thought, ‘If I filtered this so that it was just the very basics, what would I want to keep?’ The answer was cotton vests, easy T-shirt dresses, nice scarves to accessorise with and some lovely linen pieces. For the boys’ range I’ve done hoodies, which I know they’ll love. The clothes are very British, which is why we shot them in an English country garden – it’s all very strawberries and cream and tennis.

We particularly like the T-shirts printed with slogans such as ‘I’m not toxic’ and ‘Please don’t panic, I’m organic’.
I was keen not to preach – you don’t want to be too serious or heavy. I also came up with a daisy print which I’m really proud of – it’s fun and messy. I just wanted to make clothes that are wearable, cool and easy.

What is your favourite part of the collection?
I would wear all the clothes, which are made in Bangladesh, India and Nepal, and there is also some amazing jewellery – especially a necklace made from recycled sweet wrappers, which is made in Bangladesh. It comes in a box also made of sweet wrappers. Brilliant!

It must have been a fast learning curve for you, being on the design side of things for the first time…
It was such fun going through all the Pantone colour books with Safia, but yes, I had to learn quickly – the colours on the page don’t always look the same on the fabrics, so you have to be patient. It’s a case of learning as you go along, and it’s all massively time consuming! When we did the first set of samples some of them looked great but others needed altering a lot.

If the reaction on the shoot is anything to go by, these clothes are going to be out of stock long before spring is here!
I really enjoyed the shoot. All the models are friends of mine: my housemate Sophie, my brother Alex. I basically called in favours – a lot of the crew are friends too. They are all super-talented, so I am very lucky that they were prepared to help out. I asked Andrea Carter-Bowman to do the photos as I just love her work, and she’s young. So this really is a collection for young people put together by young people. And I’m so proud of it – it’s exactly how I intended it to look.

You are something of a fashionista, but were you completely new to fair-trade fashion?
The first time I heard about fair trade was during a geography coursework project, and I remember thinking, ‘Why isn’t everything fair trade?’ Everyone knows about fair-trade bananas and coffee, but of course anything can be fair trade. Fair-trade fashion costs a bit more but allows those who make it to earn a decent living; to be able to take care of their families and live with dignity.

But do you think it is possible to enjoy high-street fashion and also support fair trade?
It’s important to differentiate between fast fashion, which is made very quickly for a very small price, and fair-trade fashion. So if you buy a T-shirt for £2, you just have to do the maths and work our how much the person who made it is being paid.

How realistic is it that the Primark generation will buy into this range and concept?
It sounds like a cliché, but we are the future. The earth is ours and will be our children’s, and I think that more than any other generation we are aware of environmental and humanitarian issues. That’s why it’s so great that People Tree is doing something aimed at people of my age – because we do care and we will buy with a conscience. I hope that more companies will follow People Tree’s example. “”
