7th Indian Telly Awards was a night to remember.
The large audience witnessed some scintillating
performances by the stars. As at every occasion,
it's the behind the stage masala that always escapes
the audience's eye.
Tellychakkar's very own Mayur Lookhar who
witnessed all the backstage happenings brings
you those not-to-be-missed moments.
At the 7th Indian Telly Awards, Ekta Kapoor bagged
the award for the best continuing serial (Kyun
Ki Saas Bhi Kahbi Bahu Thi). After receiving
the award Ekta headed to give an interview back
stage. After winding up her interview Ekta forgot
to take her trophy. She's won many an award and
perhaps she's lost count of them all. But this
one was too special for her and
she came back for it.
a doting husband!
Deven Bhojani won the best comic actor award for
his character Gattu in Baa Bahoo Aur Baby.
On the dais, Deven confessed to preparing a victor's
speech and it didn't take him long to read from
the piece of paper. Post receiving the award he
headed back stage for his interview. Unfortunately
for Deven, he had to wait for some time. And an
uneasy Deven requested to be excused as his wife
was sitting alone. Now, that's what you call a
Bull is the booster for Shaktimaan!
Popeye derives his strength from Spinach; Stanley
Ipkiss becomes invincible after wearing the Mask,
Anger turns Dr. Bruce Banner into The Incredible
Hulk. Ever wondered what keeps our desi super
hero Shaktimaan (Mukesh Khanna) strong?
here's the secret. Our Shaktimaan was spotted
sipping on to a Red Bull (energy drink) backstage.
If one had any doubts over the energizer's effect,
one merely had to see the spirited performance
by the actor while dancing to the title track
of Om Shanti Om.
- the true showman?
Akashdeep Sehgal has been in the news lately for
his poor health. However, that didn't deter him
from performing at the Telly Awards. Prior to
his performance, the actor took his dose of medicine.
Now that's what you call a true showman.
Basu puzzled by his award?
Siddharth Basu is not known to hog much media
space. For two decades, he's gone about his work
without making much hue or cry about it. At the
7th Telly Awards, Siddharth and wife Anita won
the Hall of Fame award. When congratulated by
our team Siddharth gave a somewhat puzzling reply,
"I don't know why I have been awarded."
Mr. Basu will forever remain modest.
From the time he arrived, Karan Oberoi was much
clued on to girl friend Mona Singh's whereabouts.
Mona was scheduled to perform in her Jassi avatar.
When she was about to make her stage appearance,
Karan, who was chatting backstage ran to take
his seat to catch his loved one perform.
