New Delhi: The entertainment quotient on the set of 'Nach Baliye 5' doubled when Bollywood's comic star Govinda rocked the dance floor with a performance.
Neelu and Arvind, whose dancing style has been repeatedly compared with that of Govinda, paid a tribute to the actor, while Jay Bhanushali and his wife Mahi also took inspiration from Govinda's life for their act.
Almost all couples came up with lots of innovative dancing forms, but the highlight was Govinda's impromptu jig with judge Shilpa Shetty.
Rahul Mahajan, who is no longer a part of the show, came back as a special guest and requested Govinda to teach him some of his moves. Govinda not only readily obliged but showcased some of his signature steps, which Rahul, despite his best efforts, couldn't match up to.
Mahie, Jimmy indulge in 'Nautanki' time
Actors Mahie Gill and Jimmy Sheirgill visited the sets of Colors' 'Nautanki: The Comedy Theatre' to promote their upcoming movie 'Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster Returns'. The duo also performed an act with Sumeet Raghavan and Kamya Punjabi.
The whole act was centred around Jimmy and Mahie, who even danced a bit and exercised their vocal chords to some popular tunes.
The audiences and the team owners Neha Dhupia and Tusshar Kapoor were floored to see them perform.
Now TV actors not roped in for talent: Mahesh Thakur
Actor Mahesh Thakur says while the TV industry is witnessing a lot of fresh blood, most newcomers are not taken for their talent, but because they have free time.
"Most actors who are new are not taken because they are talented. If they have 25 days in a month free, they are taken. There is just a lot of work available now, and one is not really on the lookout for talent," Mahesh told IANS.
The actor is currently seen on Sahara One's 'Ghar Aja Pardesi'.
Actress Pratyusha Banerjee, who plays Anandi in popular TV serial 'Balika Vadhu', which is currently heading for a highpoint, is leaving the show. She says there is no reason behind it, but the channel claims it is due to "hectic shooting schedules".
"I have left the show. There is no reason as such. It was a mutual discussion between me and my channel. The talks were on for a few months that I wanted to quit, but they also had to find someone who could take the story forward. Now I think they have found someone," Pratyusha told IANS.
The replacement will be made with effect from March 4, said a spokesperson from Colors channel.
