No one has given as many stars to Bollywood, as I have,” says Maureen Wadia, who is turning the Gladrags Mrs India beauty pageant into a reality show. That’s not all — Wadia is also thinking of turning Mega Model Hunt into a reality show. “It won’t be as boring as Perfect Bride. There will be bitchiness, plotting and a lot of entertainment. You will get to see our ‘desperate’ housewives’,” says Wadia.
The contestants on the show, Gladrags Mrs India 2010, which premieres at 7 pm on November 15 on NDTV Imagine, don’t have it easy either. “The selected contestants will have to go through ‘Maureen Wadia’s survival course’. I want the girls to be confident, full of vitality and have a good personality. No excuses for flabby bodies because they are married.”
Ask her what she would like to say about her earlier comment, ‘I don’t care if Ness (her son) marries Preity (Zinta) or a zebra’, and she replies, “I did use the word Zebra, but all I meant was that if my son falls in love with someone, why would I care if she is black or white? It’s his personal choice.” And now that it’s been reported that Ness and Preity have called it quits, how is Ness coping with the heart break? “For that, you will have to wait till March, when the IPL starts and the Kings IX Punjab start playing,” quips Wadia.
