In reality

Pooja Bedi got up from the couch and tried to dance, but the man in black and his two co-judges didnt fancy it, and in the end it was another case of 'Jassi jaisi koi nahi'..
Some sales guy in BPL, Mumbai landed up with a bonus because a particular couple decided to buy 200 SIMs and tried rigging their chances. of course now they are dancing to the tune of the Mumbai police...
In case you have no clue of what i am talking about, you, my friend, are out of touch with reality,shows that is, because i've been referring to the two desi versions of 'Dance with the Stars'..
For a whole lot of TV stars and celebrity chefs and bollywood directors, the last few days have been a dance..and after the chronicles of one abhijeet sawant, life's been a song even for some kids..and the latest one, which started off last weekend is one thats featuring Arshad Warsi for the desi version of Big Brother... 13 celebrities under one roof for 3 months, with no outside communication - har daily soap ka baap, so says apna circit and all their movements are going to be followed by closed circuit cameras..bole toh, privacy ki to vaat lag gayi, mamu!! the part thats most interesting is that this blog's favorite celebrity is going to be one of the participants - the one, the only, Rakhi Sawant.. if she can create a controversy out of an ordinary birthday party, imagine the havoc she can cause, when she knows the public is watching..just imagine the possibilities :))
and going by the SIM card fiasco, i wonder whether the line between real life and reel life is getting even more blurred.. and maybe its not just for the celebrities, but the ordinary folk - and again, not just those who take part in it, but the ones who watch it...
until next time, surreal..

I watched it for sometime today! It was interesting for sometime. Then it got to my neves !

Wonder what it takes to commit to 3 months of 'in camera' incarceration!

Strange are the ways of the world !

Dunno, I feel its gonna be a flop show, in the name of reality TV, all 'stars' will overdo their act..and that'll be irritating!
