Star did get a good brow-beating and a lot of controversies cuz of the last KBC.. and have you noticed the way he deals with normal people?! He calls every one "TU" yay!! that makes me feel yuck!
Serious you call "tu" to whom you are real close and are good friends kinds... for strangers it is "TUM" or "AAP" [ Like BIG B used to use]

er! who am I talking about :(

anyways we have left watching TV and we are into blogging.. THANK GOD!

Ya right Sneha!

peeche pada hai.. hamare peeche pada hai!

my mom and me think that he is doing some jhamela with the Star guys... but u know the guy who bought KBC and Big B to STar [their last CEO] was taken away by NDTV..

Star is going down the drains cuz of that :-|
