KBC tamil version to be hosted by Prakash Raj

KBC tamil version to be hosted by Prakash Raj

Prakash Raj

B-town’s new favorite villain, Prakash Raj will be seen hosting the Tamil version of  the popular game show ‘Kaun Banega Crorepati’.
It Is titled ‘Neengalum Vellalam Oru Kodi’(NVOK) which means ‘You too can win one crore’ in English. The show which is in its second season will start premiering from the next month.

Prakash Raj seems to be very happy. He shared a picture from the sets and tweeted: ‘NVOK ( Kaun Banega Crorepati Tamil ) FOR UUUU’.

Mean while Prakash’s good friend and host of the hindi version Mr.Amitabh Bachchan expressed his happiness over the decision by tweeting ‘Prakash Raj is a very competent artist and friend.I am certain he will do a magnificent job’.

Incidentally, Prakash Raj was considered as a host for the first season itself but he was busy his work so couldn’t take up the role, so the first season’s host was south star Suriya (of RaktaCharitra fame). Since he rejected to host the second season, the producers went back to their original choice and this time Prakash Raj accept it.As they say whats yours will always remain yours.

Hoping that ‘NVOK’ will do as much good to Prakash Raj as ‘KBC’ did to Amitabh bhachchan.

Are you Team Coco, Team Karolina, or Team Naomi?

Are you Team Coco, Team Karolina, or Team Naomi?

Did you watch the premiere of The Face last night? I learned three things from this episode about the world of modeling. First, you gotta be confident and fearless. Team Coco’s Stephanie was so unsure and it was photographed forever in her first photo shoot. Second, you gotta play your strengths. Team Karolina didn’t play it safe but also didn’t foolishly risk it all and her team won the group challenge. And third, never, ever cross Naomi Campbell.

What team are you on? Check out the profiles of Coco Rocha, Karolina Kurkova, and Naomi Campbell in the videos below and tell us who are you rooting for in the comments section! And don’t miss the next episode of The Face when it airs Tuesdays at 9E/6P right here on MUCH.

We #MuchLove Scott Willats

We #MuchLove Scott Willats

We asked New.Music.Live.‘s Scott Willats to share some of the best #MuchLove moments in his life and he revealed a lot! Check out his answers below!

First Kiss

I remember it as if it was yesterday. I was in Grade 6 and there was a girl who I was head over heals for. We walked home and stopped at the park where we had to go our separate ways. As much as I want to say I was a Casanova and leaned in, the truth is she instigated it because my nerves were killing me. But it happened and I had a smile on my face for at least 2 weeks.

Cutest Date

A very special girl once took me to my favourite soccer teams game. Just the fact that I found a girl who was into what I was into was enough for me but these tickets were V.I.P. so we were able to go anywhere in the stadium we wanted. Anywhere, you know what I mean.

Worst Date

Went to a restaurant where her ex boyfriend served us. Awkward.

Biggest Celebrity Crush

Eva Longoria. Kate Beckinsale annnnnnnnnd Vida Guerra.

Perfect Date

Comfort. If her and I are comfortable it doesn’t matter what we do, I guarantee we’ll have fun.

Sweetest Valentine

5 packs of those Sweet Tarts. Literally the sweetest gift ever.

Valentine’s Day 2013

At work, playing throwback romantic videos for you and your special someone.

Fave Love Song

Trey Songz, Don’t Wanna Come Down

Favourite Break Up Song

Trey Songz (kinda a fan), All the If’s in The World

Ke$ha’s documentary will feature a urine cocktail

Ke$ha’s documentary will feature a urine cocktail

During an interview with BBC Radio 1 this week, Ke$ha talked about her upcoming MTV documentary series My Crazy Beautiful Life, sharing some less than savory details. The singer confirmed that the documentary will be an uncensored look at her life on the road, saying “It’s my brother and his weird friend following me around for the past two-and-a-half years. We didn’t know what we were doing per se, but it’s my little brother and he’s my best friend. He’s got me wasted at 6am … He got all the things you would want to see and all the things you wouldn’t really want to see – making out with dudes, drinking my own pee, jumping out of a building, jumping out of airplanes, swimming with sharks …” Well, I was going to discuss her brother getting her drunk and filming her make out with dudes, but then she drank her own pee. I can only focus on one horrifying piece of information at a time.

Ke$ha told the radio station “I was told drinking my own pee was good, I was trying to be healthy … Somebody tried to take my pee away from me and I said, ‘That is mine!’ So I snatched it up and took a chug and it was really gross so I don’t do it anymore.” Yes, she drank her own pee. Is this documentary a remake of Water World? Why would consuming your own waste be healthy?

Ke$ha went on to say “[How often do I get told I'm amazing?] Not enough! My fans are amazing to me but usually the people around me say, ‘You’re disgusting!’ or, ‘Put your pants on!’ or ‘You’re late!’ Or they say, ‘You smell weird, what’s that smell?’ I smell like a hobo.” There’s a very easy solution to Ke$ha’s problems and it involves not consuming her own waste. And buying an alarm clock.

Airing in April, My Crazy Beautiful Life follows Ke$ha over a two year period as she records her new disc Warrior, travels the globe and tries to keep a handle on both her personal and professional lives. And drinks her own pee. Dude. Come on.

I hid it from my staff, I didn’t want to disappoint my amazing fans. However after last nights performance I could not walk and still can’t. To the fans in Chicago Detroit & Hamilton I hope you can forgive me, as it is nearly impossible for me to forgive myself. Im devasted & sad. It will hopefully heal as soon as possible, I hate this. I hate this so much. I love you and Im sorry.”

Rani who already was in silence remembering all the memories that she had with Yashji, this she came as a shocker.Considering the constant rumors about Rani Mukherjee and Aditya Chopra doing rounds, this embarked a whole new controversy about a secret wedding between Rani and Aditya Chopra.

However on other hand, Shatrughan Sinha is unapologetic on this matter. He was quoted saying “I only stated the truth. Either you should not ask me to speak in public. If you do, you better be prepared for some frank speak. I was asked to speak on the great Yash Chopra. While I was mentioning the family members my wife reminded me that I had forgot to mention Aditya Chopra. To this I replied, “I have mentioned Rani Chopra and that is as good as mentioning Aditya Chopra too.” I see no harm in this. I didn’t think it would become such an issue.”

Similarly YRF also released a statement saying that the incident was just a slip of tongue and it should be treated the same way.
