Jalandhar, February 21, 2018 (Akash Sharma): Actress Aditi Rathore who is currently seen donning the role of Avni / Nilanjana in STAR Plus’ daily Naamkarann shared that she is not keen on working for the big screen at the moment. She says she always had a desire to do something big on the small screen.

"I like TV more right now. I want to play good characters so that people remember them forever. It's not my aim to do films. I always wanted to do something big on the small screen, play powerful characters," Aditi shared.

Talking about her first show as the lead actress, she adds, "When you play a lead role and the story revolves around you, then the responsibility grows. You have to give more time and dedication to it. I try to present my character in the best way possible and in a natural way. We generally work for 30 or 31 days. The shift is for 12 hours or sometimes more, but we chose this."

As per the current track of the show, Naamkarann has taken a leap of 10 years where Avni and Neil are separated from each other. Leaving her past behind, Avni will lead a new life as Nilanjana. Her new look is inspired from Deepika Padukone’s look in Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani. “My new look is young and simple. I will no longer wear sarees and will be wearing western outfits and a pair of spectacles.”

We can’t wait to know if Avni and Neil will re-unite again, can we?

Jalandhar, February 21, 2018 (Akash Sharma): In the upcoming episodes we will see, after the fake kidnapping of Elaichi by herself, her parents are very tensed who are unaware of the reality. Murari agrees to pay the ransom money and calls the number of the first call received. Pancham (Nikhil Khurana) feels since Murari has agreed to pay, he has passed Elaichi’s test of love, and this drama should be stopped immediately. But Elaichi remains adamant and disagrees. Murari (Anoop Upadhyay) leaves the ransom bag at the designated spot and Sunita (Raashi Bawa) takes the money much to everyone’s happiness.

Elaichi’s parents are thrilled to have her back. At night, Elaichi (Hiba Nawab) puts the ransom amount near Murari's bed and Murari sees her. He is naturally upset and threatens and decides to marry her as soon as possible.

Will Murari really get Elaichi married? How will Elaichi react to the new drama in her life?

Commenting on the track, Anoop Upadhyay said,” Elaichi’s pranks are getting more serious day by day. After coming to know about the kidnaping drama done by her, he gets angry and decides to marry her.”

The value of conserving water in Mere Sai

Mumbai, February 20, 2018 (Online News India): Water, the second most important element needed for sustaining life on our planet. Owing to pollution and population explosion, humans are facing water scarcity all over the globe and are managing their daily chores in frugal quantities. Abeer Soofi who plays the role of Sai Baba on Sony Entertainment Television’s show Mere Sai has been a witness to the grievous water shortage people face in remote towns of the country. Few years ago when he visited a friend’s place in northern India, he realized the difficult life led by all of them owing to water scarcity. One person would manage his entire day’s need for water in a single bucket.

When contacted Abeer said, “I was appalled to witness the problems people faced with scanty water supply. We are fortunate to have ample water around us for everyday use. People living in villages and remote towns fight a daily battle for survival with the water supply. It was heart wrenching to see people manage their daily tasks in a single bucket of water! Imagine if a family has a sick person or a child at home, how would they manage their activities? Even in Maharashtra, many villages have faced drought which has drastically affected the crop situation. On our show Mere Sai, the recent track describes how Shirdi faced water shortage and the troubles that the villagers had to face and how Sai helped them to tide through in this difficult situation. In my opinion, it is important for all of us countrymen to adopt water conservation measures viz. reduce use of showers, reuse water for gardening purposes, rainwater harvesting methods need to be implemented to counter water scarcity issues.”

In the recent track, the number of visitors from nearby villages to seek Sai’s Darshan has multiplied resulting in a water crisis at Dwarkamayi. The closest water source is at some distance. Sai suffers along with his bhakts as Ahmednagar is a drought prone region. How will Sai quench the thirst of his devotees? Will the water problem of Dwarkamayi be solved?

Jalandhar, February 19, 2018 (Akash Sharma): Zain Imam who is currently seen donning the role of Neil Khanna in STAR Plus’ daily Naamkarann, is ready to steal your heart with his new look as the show takes a leap of 5 years.

As the show progresses, we will see Avni and Neil separated from each other. Neil will now be seen as a private security officer to Superstar Karan Kapoor (played by Zaan Khan) as being a police officer reminds him of Avni. Talking about his look he says, “My new look is very casual and raw. I’ve grown a thick stubble this time to look intense on screen. A major highlight in my look is that I will be wearing a mangalsutra on my wrist as Avni’s memory. Because, why can’t men wear a mangalsutra?”

Neil’s new character will be very similar to that of Akshay Kumar’s role from Main Khiladi Tu Anari.

We can’t wait to watch this new side of Zain!

Mumbai, February 19, 2018 (Online News India): Ruling the ratings chart as one of the Top 5 shows in the urban markets, COLORS’ Ishq Mein Marjawan has won high praise from across the country.

The cast and crew members are in a joyous mood and celebrated the momentous occasion by letting their hair down at the party organized for this milestone. When contacted, Arjun Bijlani shared, “It has been a wonderful journey so far and I celebrated this milestone with the entire cast last night. This would have not been possible without the passion and hard work that we have put in and the support of our fans. I am extremely delighted and wish we complete a 1000 episodes of this engaging narrative. Yash and Mamta Patnaik always come up with innovative content.”

Aalisha Panwar added, “It feels great that our dedication and commitment to the show is paying off well. I feel fortunate that my fans are showering love on me for playing the dual roles of Aarohi and Tara. We promise to keep our audiences engaged every week and make this show even more successful in the future.”

Producer Yash Patnaik says, “At a time when early primetime slots are filled with family and social dramas, Ishq Main Marjawan came as a breath of fresh air. It was risky to put a thriller drama at that time slot as the audience are mostly women whereas thrillers generally find their audience at late prime time.. I am glad we found our audience. It’s so heartening to see the show growing every week and being in the top 5. We are thankful to Colors for encouraging us to make IMM and supporting it all through our.”
