Nach Baliye 9: Shantanu Maheshwari claims judges are unfair, Raveena Tandon confronts him

Published

on

Nach Baliye 9 is increasingly becoming controversial by the day. Just a day after reports of Raveena and Urvashi Dholakia getting into an argument surfaced, another fight involving the judges has come to light.

As per sources from the show, TV actor and contestant Shantanu Maheshwari recently complained to the creative team that the judges are biased towards a few contestants. Little did he know that he would be confronted by judges Raveena and Ahmed Khan.

The source told Hindustan Times, “Shantanu went and complained to the creative team saying that he’s not happy with Raveena and Ahmed’s judgments. When the judges got to know about the same, they confronted him. ‘Do you think are we not doing our jobs properly?’, they asked.

“The judges further told him that instead of going and talking to the creative team, he should have approached them about the same. Shantanu was quiet after that, but he cried backstage,” the source added.

Talking about coming to Nach Baliye with his girlfriend Nityaami Shirke, Shantanu had earlier told Hindustan Times, “The show is not just about dancing, it’s about Nach Baliye so you are not supposed to take a lot of pressure because the more pressure you take, you are not able to celebrate dance. When you enjoy dance, you celebrate it and the people who are watching feel the energy and enjoy the performance. So I am trying to make her understand this so as not to let pressure get to her. She loves dancing and I am trying to make sure that she is enjoying what she is doing.”

Earlier, Raveena caught host Maniesh Paul making faces as she spoke and was infuriated, assuming that he was reacting to her. Maniesh was actually reacting to the directions he received from the makers via his ear piece. A source had told Hindustan Times, “He made a face when Raveena was right in front of him and she assumed he made that face for her. This infuriated Raveena and she said ‘Can’t do this anymore’ before storming to her vanity van.” The show shooting was stalled for an hour before the production team convinced both the actors to get back.

Produced by Salman Khan, Nach Baliye is Raveena’s third TV show as a judge. She has earlier judged Sabse Bada Kalakar and The Drama Company.

Watch | Gulabo Sitabo’s first song ‘Jootam Phenk’ out now

Published

on

The Rising Sun Films and Kinoworks have dropped the first song “Jootam Phenk” from Gulabo Sitabo, that excellently portrays the relation between our much-awaited squabbling jodi of Mirza and Baankey. Composed by Abhishek Arora and written by Puneet Sharma, this astounding first track “Jootam Phenk” is sung by Piyush Mishra.

Speaking of returning as a music composer with director Shoojit Sircar, Abhishek Arora said, “It is always a pleasure to be working alongside a remarkable filmmaker like Shoojit Sircar. This is our third movie together after Vicky Donor and October; and I am in awe of his immense talent and dedication towards his craft. Working with Shoojit da is always a wonderful experience and his ability to effortlessly weave the music to the script is truly brilliant. Incredibly sung by the versatile artist Piyush Mishra, “Jootam Phenk” is a light-hearted fun song that perfectly captures the essence of Gulabo Sitabo. Our hope was to bring the theatrical nuances and poise required to enrich the song and with an expressive and highly textured voice such as his, Piyush has done complete justice to this quirky ode to the banter between Mirza and Baankey.”

Piyush Mishra quips, “Jootam Phenk is a phenomenal song that beautifully captures the quirks of Mirza and Baankey. The composer Abhishek Arora and director Shoojit Sircar put forth immense faith in me to add a certain sense of drama to Puneet Sharma’s fantastic lyrics to create this refreshingly fun track. They had the foresight that this would elevate the music to a performance rather than just a mere song, speaks volumes in itself of the staggering conviction with which it is created. It was truly incredible to be a part of this project and I hope the audiences will love it equally.”

The much-anticipated movie featuring the bickering duo, Ayushmann Khurrana and Amitabh Bachchan Gulabo Sitabo, is gearing up for a global release on June 12, exclusively on Amazon Prime Video.
