‘3 Idiots’ team praises Aamir’s show (Movie Snippets)May 10th, 2012 - 3:20 pm ICT by IANS
Mumbai, May 10 (IANS) Director of “3 Idiots” Rajkumar Hirani and producer Vidhu Vinod Chopra have given the thumbs up to Aamir Khan’s first television show “Satyamev Jayate” that aims at bringing social reform in the country.
Hirani feels the show could be a trendsetter.
“The show might change the face of television. This is not a fiction programme, it’s a documentary. More programmes like these should come,” said Hirani on the sidelines of an event here.
In the first episode of “Satyamev Jayate”, which was telecast Sunday, Aamir chose to discuss the issues around female foeticide.
Like several viewers across the nation, Chopra also loved the programme.
“I really liked the show. I even went to Aamir’s house and praised him. We see rubbish and think this is what works … So many people watched the show that their (the show website’s) server crashed,” said Chopra, who is all for quality content on TV.
“If you do good work, people will see for sure,” he added.
Pravesh Rana tries hand at choreography
After modelling and anchoring, it seems Pravesh Rana is in the mood to turn choreographer.
At least it seems so, given Pravesh’s inclination towards dance on the sets of Bindass’ “Live Out Loud”, which he is currently hosting.
The show uses the caliber of a Bindass Dance Squad to help an individual communicate with his or her loved one, and Pravesh was seen bonding quite well with Uma and Gaiti, the choreographers of the squad.
The choreographers, who have earlier directed dance sequences for Ranbir Kapoor-starrer “Rockstar”, were surprised to see Pravesh trying his hand at instructing the dance squad and suggesting innovative and creative dance steps.
Asin learns to waltz!
Actress Asin Thottumkal, a trained Bharatnatyam dancer, especially learnt waltz for an advertisement shoot.
A sequence in the ad of a soap brand endorsed by Asin required her to perform the ballroom dance of the style ‘Viennese waltz’ and she picked up the steps in a short while.
Asin, who was shooting in Wai for “Bol Bachchan” at the same time, had to juggle between both these professional commitments.
After the film shooting when everyone would call it a day, Asin would learn waltz during the nights.
According to a source close to Asin, the actress is mesmerised by this western dance form and is planning to pursue it further as and when she wraps up the shooting of her movies.
