By far, this was Farah Khan’s best episode, and mind you she is only six episodes down. This Sunday, Khan chatted with some three men who have found themselves in some rather nasty controversies in the past. First up was Ritiesh Deshmukh, who was in the center of some major heat after he and Ram Gopal Varma accompanied his father, Vilasrao Deshmukh to the Taj Hotel hours after the 26/11 tragedy. The actor explained how he had no intentions of tarnishing his, his father’s or even Varma’s reputation and neither did they expect for the public to react in this way. However, he did apologize and explain that he had been on many such “tours” much before he had become an actor.
Next came Vivek Oberoi. He opened up to Farah about the incidents that led up to his press conference about the 41 calls he received from Salman Khan. He also admitted that he realized almost instantly that he was making a mistake and should have taken his father’s advice which he failed to do so. And when asked if he was over Aishwarya Rai, he quickly said he was. However, he did add that Ash did not appreciate his gesture and in fact told he was “immature”. The actor also spoke about the repercussions that came with his impulsive act: constant bashing and a lack of work being just a few. Oberoi then claimed that more than anyone else, she felt bad for Salman’s and his mother, who suffered as a consequence. More than anything, he regrets the friendship he lost with Sohail Khan, an old friend.
Cricketer Sreesanth also joined the boys and spoke about his slapping ordeal with Harbhajan Singh. Quickly, he claimed that the media had completely drawn the situation out of proportion and before he had a chance to fix it, the Cricket Board had issued Singh a five match ban. Regret was the word of this episode, but the men spoke straight from their hearts making this one of the most entertaining and enlightening of episodes.
Check back next week when Farah talks to John Abraham and Yuvraj Singh!
