Mumbai–Actress Sunny Leone, who is doing well for herself in Bollywood and has featured in reality TV shows like “Bigg Boss” and “Splitsvilla”, will soon make her debut on the small screen with the popular show “Bhabi Ji Ghar Par Hai”.
Sunny, who started shooting for the show on Monday, will be seen playing herself on the &TV entertainer.
According to the sequence, Sunny will be entering the street where Vibhuti (Aashif Sheikh), Anita (Saumya Tandon), Angoori (Shubhangi Atre) and Manmohan (Rohitash Gaud) live. She will appear along with the director of her film to scout for her film’s hero.

Small screen reaches out to more people: John Abraham
New Delhi–Actor John Abraham considers the small screen a platform which gives wider reach to films than the big screen itself.
“I think the small screen reaches out to far more people than the big screen does. I have noticed there are certain films, like ‘Force’ … It became a far bigger film when it released on television than it was on screen,” John told IANS over E-mail.
John’s “Rocky Handsome” premiered on Sony Max on Sunday, and he feels it must have got a wider reach.
The actor-producer says while TV multiplies the reach of content by several times, the medium can’t be compared to cinema.
“You can’t compare the two, very honestly. The two are totally different vehicles and they serve their purposes mutually, exclusively and in correlation with each other. So I can’t really compare,” he said.
John is currently gearing up for the release of his upcoming film “Force 2”, which also features Sonakshi Sinha and Tahir Raj Bhasin. The film is the sequel to the 2011 action thriller “Force” directed by Nishikant Kamat.

Mumbai– TV actor Mayur Verma, known for his role in “Swaragini”, says he will be seen in the upcoming tenth season of the controversial reality show “Bigg Boss”.
“I have been selected as a contestant for upcoming season of ‘Bigg Boss’. Last year, I had been nominated as a wild card contestant, however as it was right after my break-up with Marina (Marina Kuwar), I thought to refrain from sharing same screen space. But this time, I am very much looking forward to being on the show,” Mayur said in a statement.
“Bigg Boss” will soon be back on the small screen with its tenth season, and this time the spotlight is on the common man. For the first time, the controversial reality show will open its doors to the common people to appear as contestants along with the stars. The show will air on Colors channel.
