ROSHNI K OLIVERA Times News Network (BOMBAY TIMES; December 28, 2009)

YRF TV is set to give telly programming a twist! Come January 1, and it will launch five shows on Sony Entertainment Television. Producer Yash Chopra is excited about his company’s foray in tellyland. “TV is getting bigger and bigger by the day,” remarks Chopra, who’s given the Indian film industry some of its biggest hits over the past many decades.

His busy schedule may not permit him the time to watch TVserials, but his wife Pammi gets her daily dose of entertainment from the small screen. “There are some serials that she likes and ardently watches every day,” he says. The Chopras had been planning to get into television for the past couple of years. “It was my son Aditya’s idea. After the release of his film Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi, he started concentrating on TV. This whole year he has been focussing on this; he has put in a lot of effort,” reveals Chopra Sr.

Talking about their television foray, he says, “YRF TV is an initiative to engage and entertain the entire family through content which combines high-quality production values with contemporary story-telling. The characters, language and environment in our shows are the kind that today’s Indian families can relate to. We are happy that Sony has shown the commitment to back our content.”

This collaboration marks another milestone in the long standing relationship between the two companies, says NP Singh, COO of Sony Entertainment Television. “Yash Raj Films has been making feature films for almost four decades. Television is the biggest mass medium in India and this collaboration will bring the very best in TV entertainment,” adds Singh.

The shows, scheduled over the weekends, promise to be distinct in their look with fresh, contemporary and engaging storylines that reflect the dreams, aspirations and passion of today’s young India. This brand new line-up of five shows, one non-fiction and four fiction, will air every Friday to Sunday between 8 and 10 pm. Here’s a little brief on each of the shows…

Lift Kara De: Touted as the mother of all reality shows on Indian television, 20 of India’s biggest super-stars will be on one platform. Each week will feature one super-star and his biggest fan. The show is hosted by Karan Johar.
Seven: This is a sci-fi drama series, where mythology is revisited in the modern day context. The show will see seven ordinary people, with extra-ordinary powers, fight the ultimate battle of Good vs Evil.
Mahi Way: A contemporary representation of a young girl on Indian television. Real, relatable, imaginative, unapologetic, happy in her skin.
Rishta.Com: Today’s take on the most traditional institution of marriage. Isha and Rohan have formed a company to find perfect matches for people.
Powder: This is about two men on two different sides of the law who take a fight all the way to the end. This fast-paced, high octane drama moves from murky by-lanes to glitzy high rises.

Shiney Ahuja’s character in Sudhir Mishra’s Hitman has been changed from an assassin to a repentant assassin, lest the role hampers his case

By Subhash K Jha (MUMBAI MIRROR; November 06, 2009)

Filmmaker Sudhir Mishra, who has been a mentor and friend to Shiney Ahuja, has once again proved his affection for the actor. Sudhir, who is doing Hitman with the actor, is shaping Shiney’s lead role in the film in such a way that it doesn’t harm his precarious position vis-à-vis the judiciary.

 

Sudhir Mishra Shiney Ahuja

The actor is out on bail after being imprisoned for alleged charges of raping his domestic help.

Confirming the news, Sudhir says, “Hitman is the story of an assassin who looks back on his violent life the day that he thinks he will die. We will certainly not show him in a light that will hamper his case or image. My writer, Vinitesh is putting together the character in a way that it doesn’t clash with Shiney’s interests. In my film, he is a repentant hitman. We want the law to take its course, but at the same time, we want Shiney to feel he is part of the mainstream.”

Sudhir, who speaks regularly with Shiney, who’s now in Delhi, says the actor had not quite recovered from his 100-day trauma. “He probably never will. No one can fully recover from such an ordeal. But at least friends should make him feel welcome and comfortable. If, as you say, he is being ostracised, then it’s really sad. Now that he is out, Shiney needs to lead a normal life, which he is struggling with currently. At the moment, he’s struggling hard to get back to being the way he was. I introduced Shiney because I had full faith in him as an actor and a human being. The only reason Shiney is not in my recent films is because he didn’t suit the roles.”

Shiney Ahuja

Did you anticipate that Shiney would get bail yesterday?

Honestly, I always went with a positive and open mind. Every time I used to feel ki ho jayega.What was special about yesterday that made it happen?

I would attribute it to our daughter, Arshiya. We hadn’t seen her since a long time as she was in Delhi. It was only six days ago, on September 27 that she came to Mumbai. It was her second birthday on September 28. She brought luck and her father was freed.

How did you react when you heard that Shiney has been granted bail?

I was overwhelmed, I started crying. I can’t tell you how happy and relieved I am feeling right now.

How are you planning to meet Shiney — with a hug or a kiss?

(Laughs) We will definitely hug. I imagine it will be a family picture with my daughter, parents and parents-in-law also being there.

Has the ordeal brought you and Shiney closer?

Yes, but that would have happened to any couple. There were funny stories about us and Shiney bore the brunt of it.

Are you not planning to return to the US (where she works). Will you continue staying in India with Shiney?

US can wait. That’s not a priority. I will be with Shiney — be it in Delhi or Mumbai.

Did you pray fervently for your husband’s freedom?

Of course, I used to go to Siddhivinayak every Tuesday and did many other things. My prayers have been answered. I want to thank the people from the film industry and everybody who stood by me. Ashoke Pandit, in particular, was like a rock by my side. I would also like to thank my lawyers — Shrikant Shivde, Neha Bhide, Manoj Mohite and Shirish Gupte.

Anupam Ahuja

How is Shiney’s health now?

He had a severe back problem on September 25. That was the last time I met him. He will be out of jail on Saturday. I am just dying to meet him.

Do you feel dejected that Shiney has been directed to stay out of Mumbai?

Not at all. I respect the law and have faith in the judiciary system. We will be fine in Delhi where our parents reside.

Will Shiney return to films?

Of course. Why would he go anywhere else? He will abide by the law and work wherever the law permits him to go.

UNITED WE STAND: Shiney Ahuja’s wife Anupam (R) with some of her neighbours who had come to express support at the press conference on Wednesday

UNITED WE STAND: Shiney Ahuja’s wife Anupam (R) with some of her neighbours who had come to express support at the press conference on Wednesday

The media is after her husband’s life. And rape, after all can be committed by a woman too (remember Disclosure’s Demi Moore or closer home,

Aitraaz’s Priyanka Chopra?) That was what Anupam Ahuja had to tell the world on Wednesday. At a press conference in Juhu to defend her `soulmate’ and the doting father to their daughter, the wounded wife reiterated what she had been saying from day one-that Shiney was innocent and was being framed. “Rape is a very heinous crime and in today’s time it can be committed not just by a man. Even a woman can do it and we all know,” an aggressive Anupam stated, adding, “I know there will soon be a law that will be formed to protect both the genders in rape cases. I really don’t know why he is being framed. It is also possible since he is a celebrity and all celebrities are soft targets.”

Reminded that the medical reports indicate injury marks on the victim, Anupam turned her ire towards the media: “Who has seen the medical report and where is that medical report? Have you seen it? There are contradictory reports in the media. The case has to be fought in court and not the media.”

Asked who could possibly want to frame her husband and why, she retorted, “Why does a robber rob a bank? I can speak for my man and I am not a girl madly in love with her man, but we have been together for 15 years. There were reports that Shiney and I am divorcing, but here I am in defence of my husband. He is my soulmate and I know he is not capable of doing it.” Quizzed further on what could be the maid’s motive in trying to frame Shiney and if money could be one of the reasons, she added: “It could be anything but I don’t want to speculate at this point.”

Did Anupam think that those trying to frame Shiney would try to influence the medical report and does she want the tests to be conducted in some laboratory outside Mumbai? “I cannot say anything other than the medical reports and examination will be conducted in a lab where it has to be done. Besides, my lawyer will take decisions regarding the case. All I can say is I have complete faith in the judiciary,” Anupam said.

Probed on what she thought about the role of the police, she was calm: “Someone went to the cops and complained and they are only doing what they have to do.” But told that Shiney has made a confession, Anupam shot back, “It is all rubbish. I repeat, Shiney is innocent and not capable of this.”

Anupam, who last met her husband on Monday in court, refused to divulge any information about where she was on the day of the incident. “I cannot reveal anything as I don’t want to influence the case in any way. I respect the law of the land,” she reiterated.

Supporting the `wife on the warpath’ were at least 20 neighbours, who vouched for Shiney’s good character. There were reports that the Ahujas’ next-door neighbour had heard some screams from the actor’s house on Sunday afternoon, but Ruchika Marwah, the actor’s neighbour who was present at the conference said, “I have not given any such statement to anyone in the media.” Asked if she knew the maid in question and if her maid and Ahuja’s maid were known to each other, she simply looked at Anupam and said, “I will not say anything, adding, “The incident came as a shock.” She parroted what Anupam had to say about Shiney: “I know Shiney as a loving father and loving husband, those are the roles I have seen him in.”

Satish Kapoor, treasurer of the society said, “I have been hearing and reading reports about Shiney’s character. But all I have to say is that he is a gentleman and was often seen in the compound taking his daughter around in a pram.”

But there was no visible support from the film industry

. Anupam brushed that aside saying, “The film industry is on our side. I have proof in the form of SMSes from people like Sudhir Mishra and Anurag Basu saying that they are with us.”
