Default Controversy No 10: Failure of shows from Smriti Irani's production house


Controversy No 10: Failure of shows from Smriti Irani's production house

Smriti started her production house with Thodi Zameen, Thoda Aasmaan (Star Plus) late last year. The show ended in mid 08'. She further tried her luck as a producer with Viruddh (Sony), Mere Apne (9X) followed by Waaris (Zee TV) which hardly ran for two months. Clearly, this successful TV star is not a successful TV producer. After all, not everyone is as smart as Queen Bee Ekta Kapoor.

Default Controversy No 9: Raja Chaudhary makes news for all the wrong reasons


Controversy No 9: Raja Chaudhary makes news for all the wrong reasons

Bigg Boss 2 runner-up and Shweta Tiwari's ex-husband Raja Chaudhary has been in the news for controversial reasons after wrapping up Bigg Boss 2. Starting with his misbehavior at Sanjay Nirupam's party followed by misbehaving with a female astrologer, to being arresting for driving-under-influence and stealing clothes and shoes worth Rs.10, 000 from Zulfi Syed's showroom at Sahara Star, Raja Chaudhary has hogged the limelight for nothing praise-worthy. No wonder all his housemates think he needs psychiatric treatment.

Default Controversy No 8: Kasauti, Kyunki and Kahaani… finally off air.



Controversy No 8: Kasauti, Kyunki and Kahaani… finally off air.

No one (neither the stars nor the viewers) could have ever imagined that big shows like Kahaani Ghar Ghar Ki, Kasauti Zindagi Ki and Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi which have kept audiences glued since 2000 to bid adieu to their fans in such an unexpected manner. The drooping TRPs off the show caused them to be pulled off air after an eight year long run.

Default Controversy No 7: Rajshree Thakur sacked from Saat Phere


Controversy No 7: Rajshree Thakur sacked from Saat Phere

Rajshree Thakur who played Saloni in Zee TV's Saat Phere was accused of throwing tantrums on the sets and demanding more money than producers thought she deserved. Miss Newly Married too was finding it difficult to adjust and give the assigned time to the show. So she will leave the show in January 2009 by mutual consent between her and the channel.
