When you hear “Jo Jeeta Wohi…” all you think is “Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikandar “! Well you are right but soon this is going to change. Star Plus is back with its reality television series “Jo Jeeta Wohi Superstar Season 2“. The show clubs in the winners and runners up from various singing competitions where they compete against each other for the title of the “SUPERSTAR”. Rahul Vaidya was the winner of the 1st season and the 1st India Idol winner Abhijeet Sawant was the 1st runner up.
And guess who is back? The real Shaan is back 😉 Shantanu Moitra and Shaan would judge STAR Plus’ Jo Jeeta Wohi Superstar Season 2! You might recollect Shantanu Moitra , the Parineeta and 3Idiots fame music director. He is making an entry into television industry as a reality show judge in the second season of “Jo Jeeta Wohi Superstar”. Did you know that Moitra had started off his musical career with the popular ‘Bole Mere Lips I Love Uncle Chips’ jingle! Interesting…Right?
And what can we say about Shaan aka Shantanu Mukherjee? As a child, Shaan began his career by singing ad jingles. After giving it up for a brief period, he soon returned to it, and also began to sing remixes and cover versions. In the 1989 movie Parinda, when he was only 17 years of age, Shaan sang a single line in the song, “Kitni Hai Pyari Pyari Dosti Hamari”. His song “Chand Sifarish” from the movie Fanaa and “Jab Se Tere Naina” from Saawariya won the Filmfare Best Male Playback Award and the Zee Cine Award Best Playback Singer – Male apart from receiving several other nominations. In 2000 he won the MTV Asia Music Award for best solo album for his album Tanha Dil. Shaan won Best TV Music Director Award for creating the music of the Zee TV show Lipstick.
Wait, it is not yet over! There is one more surprise element in the show…. After her long absence from the telly industry due to her pregnancy, Mandira Bedi is back in the media and she would be the host of the reality show.
After her star-making turn in Shanti, Bedi appeared in a supporting role in the 1995 film Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge and played Kajol’s rival and going-to-be sister-in-law for Shahrukh Khan’s love and “Mandira”, in the popular Indian soap Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi. Among her other career highlights was a stint as one of the presenters on the Indian television talent contest/reality show, Fame Gurukul (which ended on 20 October 2005), replacing R. Madhavan as the anchor of Deal Ya No Deal. Did you know that she also hosted the 1st season of “Jo Jeeta Wohi Superstar”?
Happy Viewing 😉
After we got you the Nomination List of the Filmfare Awards here , the award ceremony took place yesterday in the newly built Reliance Media Works studio in Film City. Amidst glamour and glitz, there were moments of laughter and fun. There were nerve wrenching moments, especially for those who were nominated. Performances, hilarious acts by SRK & Ranbir and much more.
The much awaited evening began with a musical tribute to Dev Anand, with Javed Ali of Coke Studio doing a version of Dil ka bhanwar, Aise na mujhe tum dekho and Khoya khoya chand. Up next were Shaan, accompanied by Leslie Lewis presenting an ode to Shammi Kapoor with Baar baar dekho, Dil deke dekho and Badan pe sitare.
This year, the hosts were a mixed doubles pair of sorts. Each pair shone bright and entertained the audience. SRK and Ranbir dropped from an aerial harness and collided mid-air as sparks flew literally. SRK ribbed Ranbir, accusing him of overacting and saying that sons of great actors seldom matched up. Ably supported by Karan Johar , Ali Zafar and former Miss India Ankita Shorey, the duo made the audience crack up with their antics.
As always, the event had an A-list of performers whose flamboyant acts lent glamour to the evening. Apart from Shah Rukh Khan, there was Priyanka Chopra, Kareena Kapoor and Deepika Padukone, who each enacted a medley of their hit numbers. Also performed the soon-to-be-married couple, Riteish Deshmukh and Genelia, who put up a spirited pre-nuptial tango that included a song from their forthcoming film Tere Naal Love Ho Gaya.
(The awards shall be telecasted on February 19th, 2012 at 8pm on Sony Tv).
