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.
Hats Off completes a decade in TV
Hats Off recently celebrated the completion of 10 years in the TV industry in a unique way. Producer J D Majethia threw a party only for his technicians on September 10, the day his production house completed a decade. Of the 7600 member crew, around 40 people have been working with him since the beginning. Majethia organised a dinner bash at a popular Chinese restaurant. Says Majethia, "I wanted to do something special for the office and technical staff who have been with me for so many years." His resolution for the coming year is to have five shows simultaneously on air across channels. Talks are on with a leading channel for a slice-of-life family drama. Besides fiction, Hats Off will also venture into reality shows soon.
