Farhan made Sridevi fall

As an assistant director, Farhan Akhtar was asked to polish the floor but at the same time Sridevi was rehearsing her dance steps there. Before anyone could realise what happened next, Sridevi slipped and fell flat on the floor. The Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara actor revealed this to Preity Zinta on her show Up Close And Personal With PZ. Preity and Farhan go a long way as he started his career with her in his debut directorial film Dil Chahta Hai. Besides sharing secrets, Farhan joked about how people often mistake him to be elder to Zoya or mistake them to be twins and even worse when some people think that they are a couple! In the play-act session, he sportingly played the wicked and sleazy director where he was convincing Preity, who donned the character of a wannabe actress, to take up a rather bold role.

Tisca Chopra anchors Prayaschit

"No matter what wrong you have done, life always gives you a second chance," believes Tisca Chopra who is anchoring Prayaschit - Gunahon Ka Zakhm on Sony. A show based on reformed criminals, Prayaschit recreates the crime first and then brings on the culprit who has been punished, served his term and reformed. Tisca acts as the sutradhar of the show. "I have always been fascinated by human nature and this show gives an amazing insight into it. Nobody is born a criminal, it is the circumstances that compel you to commit a crime," says Tisca, who will soon be seen in Love Breakups Zindagi in a spunky role living life on her own terms. She falls in love with a guy who is poles apart from her. Her next outing will be Khushiyan wherein she plays a typical New Yorker who realises the value of an Indian family. "This year has been good for me. Dil Toh Bachcha Hai Ji and 404 were appreciated by critics and audiences alike. I'm hoping that Love Breakups Zindagi and Khushiyan will also do well," smiles the actress who rose to fame with her outing as a mother in Taare Zameen Par.
