Posted by the CEO of Colors, Raj Nayak on Twitter, the tweet reads, “Feel the fizz – Coming soon @BiggBoss with the #Sultan @BeingSalmanKhan #BB10 @iamappyfizz @oppomobileindia”. Earlier we had reported that in a unique move of sorts, the channel and the makers of the show decided to bring about a change in the concept of the show. While Bigg Boss generally has celebrities for contestants, this time, they have decided to give the opportunity to common men and women.

Here’s a glimpse of the latest promo:

I know what it is like for women in Delhi – Taapsee Pannu


For Taapsee Pannu the journey in Bollywood so far has been a portrait of courage and unconventionality.

“From the time I came into Hindi cinema with Chashme Buddoor I’ve chosen projects not for their commercial viability but for what I feel was right for me. There are so many fish in the ocean. I had to be a different kind of fish,” says Taapsee whose forthcoming Hindi project Pink is one of the most talked-about films in recent times.

“I get a lot of that reaction,” Taapsee laughs pleasurably. “When I was offered Pink by (producer) Shoojit Sircar, I knew this was going to be a powerful statement on contemporary women and sexual aggression. The film is set in Delhi and I am a Delhi girl. I know what it is like for women to be heckled, harassed and attacked, and I don’t mean attacked just physically. Verbal eve’s teasing is as insulting and damaging to a woman as physical assault. Why do we segregate and discriminate one sort of violation from another?”

For Taapsee playing a Delhi girl who is sexually molested in Pink was not easy. “Every day I’d come on the set to face one more day of the most gruelling scenes. No sensitive person could remain unaffected by the situation I had to go through and the dialogues I had to speak. I have to admit Pink has been the most challenging role of my career.”

Banning Happy Bhag Jayegi in Pakistan is a slap in my face says director


Mudassar Aziz who is thrilled to bits about the success of his Indo-Pak love story Happy Bhag Jayegi can’t understand why the film has been banned in Pakistan.

Yeh toh wohi baat hui. Zulm bhi aap karo khafa bhi aap ho (you do wrong and then you become upset). The ban is a slap in my face. In no way does my film show Pakistan in a bad light. In fact everybody is talking about how positively Pakistan has been portrayed in my film. Yet they are upset with the film, apparently because I have shown a portrait of Jinnah in the film… I’ve been to Pakistan just a few months ago. There are pictures of Jinnah everywhere. What is wrong in showing Jinnah Saab’s portrait?

The other objection that the Pakistani censor board has raised has to do with the character of the Pakistani cop played by Piyush Mishra.

“They say he is portrayed too flippantly. What is wrong with the cop being amusing rather than intimidating? Piyush saab’s character is everyone’s favourite,” says Mudassar.

“We’ve always welcomed their artistes into Indian cinema. But they continue to be suspicious of Indian films. By putting a ban on my film they aren’t stopping Pakistanis from watching it. They are watching it on pirated DVDs,” says Mudassar.

Lopetigu, who replaced Vincente del Bosque, has named De Gea, Pepe Reina and West Ham’s Adrian as his three keepers for the friendly against Belgium and World Cup qualifiers with Liechtenstein. Lopetegui is adamant the door is still open to Casillas. “I understood I had to speak with him. I was very honest with him. He still very close to us.

“It will be a pleasure to work with the goalkeepers. There is no kind of interference with my list. My only interest is the national team.

“All the players who have been called up have been analysed live. I have spoken with Del Bosque. We are neighbours and friends and have talked about everything.” Chelsea midfielder Fabregas is another notable omission, but teammate Diego Costa returns to the squad

Jose Mourinho’s side will also come up against Dutch giants Feyenoord and Zorya Luhansk of Ukraine in Group A. “It is a good draw for us. We think we are in the Champions League. There are very similar groups in the Champions League,” said Mourinho.

“It is a difficult group but it is good. If you have teams without expression, even fans wouldn’t enjoy Thursdays. We all know the competition is not the same as the Champions League but to have Manchester United playing against clubs with tradition like Fenerbahce and Feyenoord is good for us. I don’t have more vision about Ukraine.”

Istanbul rivals Besiktas, Fenerbahce were eliminated from the Champions League by Monaco in the third qualifying round.

EPL: Klopp and Liverpool gear up for clash against Tottenham

London: Liverpool’s trip to Tottenham brings manager Jurgen Klopp to the venue of his first match in charge of the Reds. In the intervening 10 months the German, who took over from Brendan Rodgers last October, has guided the club to two cup finals but also a disappointing eighth-place Premier League finish.

As he prepares to go back to White Hart Lane, where last season they played out a goalless draw, Klopp notes the strides his side have made but believes there is plenty of development to come.

Consistency in squad
Klopp believes the two teams have evolved in similar ways since the 0-0 draw on his last trip to White Hart Lane last October. “Both teams have consistency in the squad. There are of course new players, but not too many changes,” said the German, whose side lost at Burnley despite having over 80 percent of possession.

“It will be exciting what will happen there. They are still strong, of course. They’ve brought a few very good players in with the basis of their former squad. For us, everything could have been better, but it could have been worse. We’re still on the way. My team gave me a lot of really good signs to work with.”

“I made a few summaries after last season: good things, not-so-good things, the need for development — all that stuff,” said the manager, who will be in charge of his 56th match for the club in just eight months of actual competitive football.

Klopp will find Tottenham play the same pressing game as themselves and so the outcome is likely to be decided by who makes the fewest mistakes.

“Almost all the goals we have conceded up until now came after losing possession,” Klopp said. “It was not about the player who received the pass, it was about the player who played the pass in the wrong moment. “If you lose the ball in the wrong moment, it’s the most difficult moment to defend because you don’t have a formation for defending. That’s the things we work on.”
