Coming Soon: Rahul Mahajan Ka Swayamvar

Whether or not UPA Govt. is taking austeroty measures to superlative degree remains a matter of debate but wise men and women at NDTV Imagine have certainly taken gender equality to highest possible degree for sure.

So here it goes. After Rakhi Ka Swayamvar which presented us about a dozen men who could have been nominated for Red and White Bravery Awards, only if they were not nominated for Yellow and Black Stupidity Award, NDTV Imagine decided to fire up our imagination with about a dozen dumb belles.

Afterall why should only men be allowed to make a fool of themselves. Even women should be given opportunity to be called publicity hungry jerks who want to build a 'Dil Ka Rishta' (quoting Rakhi 'the original' Sawant) with a former drug-addict. Ok, he may have kicked that habit, but what about kicking his wife?

I don't want to stick my neck out to predict how good or bad the show will fare out in its second season as compared to the first, but Rahul Mahajan is perhaps a male version of Rakhi Sawant. Not that Mahajan dances in mini-skirts as item girl and definitely not that Rakhi beat her boyfriend in presence of cameras unlike Mahajan who beat his wife in their absence.

So women of India. Here is your chance to show how hungry you are for cheap publicity. Hope you leave nothing to Imagine!

"Wanted" a "Pokiri" review?

Telugu "Pokiri" starring Mahesh Babu was the first Telugu movie I watched in a cinema. And I wrote a review much to amusement of everyone. Yesterday I reading Rajeev Masand' review of "Wanted", I felt that just by changing actors' names in my "Pokiri" review, it can be passed as "Wanted" review! Read it here.

Hey Abhishek

Really "gender equality to highest possible degree"

Why no post for so long?Too busy with life i guess.


Smita said...

lol!!! Awesome snap u have picked of Rahul Mahajan!!!

Now the best part is that after his Swayamwar ends they will come up with Rakhi Swanat Swayamwar Part 2 :D

Abhishek said...

Thanks very much. Yeah, bit busy bit lazy! :)


Yeah, they will have to get back to Rakhi Sawant, considering there are reports of her booting out her chosen one!

Very well seems like the more notorious track record you've the more are chances for your shortcut to fame by these so called "janam janam ka pavitra rishta" shows! Though I must say kudos to the imagination of NDTV imagine for thinking Mahajan as counterpart of Sawant...huh, kya dimag chalta hai inka!

Ha Ha! The pictorial comparison is too good.

NDTV Imagine... The only show I liked on this channel was "Oye, It's Friday". And I give complete credit to Mr. Akhtar for carrying it out so well. No points to the channel.

These guys Imagine too much:
1) The dance shows for cheerleaders of KKR team.
2) Rakhi Sawant ka Swayamvar
3) Rahul Mahajan ka Swayamvar
This is another one with "The Rakhi":
4) Pati, Patni aur Woh: Starring "Rakhi" (wih a new hairstyle) and "Elesh" (without any hairstyle).

Oh! I forgot to mention.

"Bigg Boss, Season 3" started yesterday on Colors and one of the residents of Bigg Boss' House is "Jaya Sawant" (Rakhi Sawant's mom) who announced that she was hurt when she was not invited for her beti's swayamvar.

Hmmmm witty,amusing and biased. Curious to know what u think now that the show is on air ?!? Pray share your profound views ...

My girlfriend forced me to see 20 mins or so of the show and I told her I need to be on sedatives (or gunpoint) to watch it any more!

(Guess you get the idea!)
