'India's Raw Star' to end with a bang

New Delhi : The musical journey of the reality show "India's Raw Star" is all set to end on a high note with singers like Kailash Kher, Mohit Chauhan, and Shaan lined up for the final episode.

 

 

 

The grand finale episode, which will be aired Sunday, will witness finalists Rituraj, Mohit Gaur and Darshan, teaming up with the singers.

 

"Allah ke bande" crooner Kailash will give a Sufi performance with Rituraj, while Mohit Gaur and Shaan will captivate the audience through a story-based act, and Darshan will do what he does best -- a soothing romantic performance with Mohit Chauhan.

 

Music directors Sachin and Jigar are composing the finale songs with the top three for the episode.

 

The list doesn't end here. There will be a face-off between "Abhi toh party shuru hui hai" hitmaker Badshah and actor Manoj Tiwari. They will perform with some eliminated contestants with the former representing Punjab and the latter representing Uttar Pradesh.

 

Actor Arjun Kapoor will also be coming to promote his upcoming movie "Tevar".

 

The journey of the show was not smooth. Singer Yo Yo Honey Singh was forced to leave the Star Plus show mid-way due to his injury, and composer-singer and actor Himesh Reshammiya replaced him.

 

It is also reported that Pakistani singer Atif Aslam was also called for the final episode, but he could no make it due to his prior commitments.

 

Child artist Siddharth 'swims' through role - literally!

 

Child artist Siddharth Nigam was in for a shock when the makers of show "Mahakumbh" informed him of an underwater sequence as he didn't know how to swim. But instead of giving up, Siddharth took up the challenge and learnt swimming in four days.

 

Siddharth, who has also showed his acting prowess as the younger version of actor Aamir Khan's character in "Dhoom: 3" earlier, decided to learn swimming the very moment and asked for the crew's support. He also picked river Ganga as his practice ground instead of a swimming pool.

 

The 14-year-old boy then performed the underwater sequence with elan.

 

Siddharth will essay the role of younger version of the male lead in the Life OK show. The show is slated to go on air soon, but a date is yet to be locked.

 

Anita roped in for 'Hero' remake

 

Actress Anita Hassanandani, who is currently seen in the show "Yeh Hai Mohabbatein", has been roped in for the movie remake of Subhash Ghai's "Hero".

 

While the actress confirmed the news, she refrained from divulging details about her role and the movie, which is being produced by actor Salman Khan. The "Dabangg" star will also feature in the movie.

 

"Yes, It's true. It's produced by Salman and directed by Nikhil Advani. It should release sometime next year. It's an exciting role, very unlike what I play in 'Yeh Hai Mohabbatein'. So yes, I am experimenting, taking up interesting work and working with great people," she said in a statement.

 

The film is said to be a modernised form of the 1983 film, in which Jackie Shroff and Meenakshi Seshadri played the leads.

 

The movie will not be Anita's first tryst with Bollywood as the actress was seen in a couple of flop movies like "Kucch To Hai", "Yeh Dil" and "Koi Aap Sa".

 

In Star Plus' "Yeh Hai Mohabbatein", Anita essays the role of Shagun in the Star Plus show with shades of grey.
