Get-ups and go
Is it curtains for Arre Deewano Mujhe Pehchaano? Anil Merani tells more.tv Updated: Jan 19, 2009 16:38 IST
The gags-and-disguises show Arre Deewano Mujhe Pechaano may wrap up soon. The Star Plus weekender features celebrities Mandira Bedi, Rakhi Sawant, Divya Dutta, Mona Singh, Swetta Keswani, Mahesh Manjrekar and Gulshan Grover in various get-ups. It is learnt that the show will end within 10 episodes (since it began). Anchor Kavita Kaushik says she has no clue whether the show will go on beyond the tenth episode.
“But we’ll obviously finish shooting for the given dates,” she says. The actress admits that while the show had a high budget, it didn’t generate sufficient TRPs. “Perhaps because there was no drama of elimination.. a must in every reality show,” she adds.
No more dates
Rakhi Sawant had to apologise to the channel bosses at STAR to be a part of Arre Deewano.. The item girl had lashed out at them after Nach Baliye 3 which she and former boyfriend Abhishek Awasthi had lost to Sanjeeda Sheikh and Aamir Ali.
But Sawant insists that she isn’t keen on devoting extra time to Arre Deewano.. beyond her scheduled dates: “We’ve worked hard on each of our get-ups. The make-up has burnt our skin! “When I was dressed as a beggar, I was actually attacked by the public. You think anyone would ever do that if I wasn’t in disguise?” Sawant has the last word, “Viewers always yell that they want something different. But try to do that and it falls flat.”
