Love’s Labours
As if once wasn’t enough,MTV Splitsvilla is set to return to Indian television tonight at 7 pm. If you loved the show and its love triangles and politics,then you might enjoy this. The show,hosted by Nikhil Chinappa,takes off from last year,where two boys were on a quest for love. This time it gives nine boys and nine girls a shot at love,fame and recognition. The stakes are upped as the wining couple gets Rs 10 lakh and a chance to host their very own show on MTV. Once again,the weapon of choice is deception and love is always war.

Two terrifying
ACTOR Madhavan can’t seem to get enough of horror. After his role in the bi-lingual spine-chiller 13B,the actor will now be seen in an episode of Sssshhhh… Phir Koi Hai,titled Paalna. On basis his experience in the horror movie,Madhavan’s character will help a family solve a supernatural mystery and will rescue a kid fromthe clutches of ghostly beings. To us,it looks like another instance where actors make appearances on TV shows to promote their new releases. That’s just so predictable.

Rough and tough
PARAKH Madan,who plays the gutsy cop Monica Mogre on Zee TV’s Monica Mogre Case Files,is actually very close to the character in her real life too. Parakh has recently gifted herself a brand new Maruti A-Star. She wanted to make this moment special and came up with a unique way of celebrating it. She drove down all the way from Delhi to Mumbai with her boyfriend. It was a non-stop 22-hour drive. She says excitedly,“Due to hectic shooting schedules these days,it’s nearly impossible to spend time on one’s interests. When I bought the car we decided to make complete use of the opportunity to explore our adventurous instincts.”

Women of substance
IF you don’t have anything special planned this Women’s Day,then you can get motivation from the Women’s World Awards,to be telecast on Zee Café. The city of Vienna was host to the 4th Women’s World Awards which was held on March 5,2009. The awards are presented in 12 different categories to women from all over the world whose achievements contribute to furthering self-determination,gender equality,freedom and the elimination of all forms of social and economic discrimination. It may lack the glitz of the Oscars and the song-and-dance of Indian awards,but at least it might prove inspirational.
