Actress Neha Dhupia is the host of ‘BFFs with Vogue’ season 2, which goes on air today on Colors Infinity at 8 pm. After watching glimpses of the show, we just have one word ‘amazing’

Neha Dhupia
Neha Dhupia is all excited for her upcoming talk-show ‘BFFs with Vogue’ to on air today.

Actress Neha Dhupia is the host of ‘BFFs with Vogue’ season 2, which goes on air today on Colors Infinity at 8 pm. After watching glimpses of episode one with the flamboyant filmmaker Karan Johar and his ‘Bff’ Shweta Bachchan Nanda, we can clearly say that with her wit and humour, she has added the sass to this show. She promises one to literally roll on the floor after watching the episodes. From making celebrities like Katrina Kaif and Deepika Padukone eat red chillies to getting them stripped for not answering her question, Neha is quite a task-master! A master everyone would love to dive deep into her conversations. From hinting at her new business venture, curiosity to know more about Salman Khan and her not-so-spoken love life, the actress pours her heart out in this candid conversation with mid-day online.

Excerpts from the interview:

How do you manage the difficult task of getting the celebrities talk about their personal lives on the show?
I don’t know. I feel that whatever you’re doing when you are in a conversation like we are or anybody else, the first thing is the comfort. The minute you get comfortable, conversations come out. It’s pretty amazing. So, I feel now that after being in the business for so many years I have comfort with a lot of people who were on the show. They’ve all been friends and there were some who I never met in my life before. We had wonderful questions and great conversation. I don’t want to get ahead of myself but I want to say this in complete modesty that I had lots of fun. Now, when you’re having fun, it transcends and the camera picks up from the smallest to the largest emotion and exactly what’s going on in your head and your heart. The camera knows you as well as a parent. I’m hoping that they have kept the best part of the show.

What difference did you feel while talking to guests you already know and the ones who you were meeting for the first time?
I’ll tell you the people I didn’t know at all; there was Juhi Chawla, Anisha Padukone (Deepika Padukone’s sister)and Radhika Apte, who I had met for the first time properly on the show and all three of them were so comfortable and we had lots of fun. You don’t need to hear more than that. It’s not about how eloquent, well-versed or worldly knowledge you have, that’s not what a conversation is, it’s having fun, being comfortable and enjoying yourself.

What makes ‘BFFs with Vogue’ different from other talk shows?
Here, people come up with their Best Friends Forever (BFF), plays a fun game and all our segments are different from other talk shows. I know that there is a direct comparison between m a really big show and I’m not anywhere in the running. I’m a fan of ‘Koffee With Karan’. So, even drawing a comparison for me, I don’t care what happens, I think it’s a compliment for me. I love being in conversations and getting to know people. So, I think my interest towards this concept would make it interesting.

We get to see a new unadulterated Neha nowadays. What is the secret behind this revival?
I’m just being myself and I’ve always been this person. It’s now that the audience has tapped into that side of me. It’s great and I hope it lasts. Some people tell me that you have found your niche and I always turn around and say that I haven’t found my niche, I’m just being myself. The only thing I always wanted to do is films and I want to do that for the rest of my life. This is my personal life doing this show, films are my professional life. I’ve really enjoyed myself and now I’m hoping that people enjoy it too.

What made you take up this show as a host?
It was an offer that was put forward via Viacom. Mr. Raj Nayak, CEO, Colors called me up and asked, ‘Would you like to do this?’ and I said that let me think about it. Then, there was no communication for almost two months and I still remember I was shopping at Sohu in New York and I see Raj Nayak calling. It was somewhere at 1 or 2 o’clock at night and I thought to myself that this is a really odd time to call. He called up and said that I know you are in New York and you are doing this show. That’s it and he hung up the call. When people show so much faith in you, one just has to go ahead and say ‘yes’.

The show will go on air from today but the conversations from it have already made headlines. Do you think that is a drawback?
No headline has ever hurt anyone unless it’s a crime. So, in our business making headline is not a crime. I would say that it’s definitely going to work for the show.

Who do you think were at their candid best on the show?
I think Karan Johar, Ayushmann Khurrana, Deepika Padukone, Bhumi Pednekar and Alia Bhatt were at their candid best.

And who do you think were politically correct?
Somebody who is politically correct is Katrina Kaif and there’s nothing wrong with that.

Talking about your show’s segment ‘Say it or Strip it’, who did you personally want to see getting stripped and tweaked the questions on the spot to make them difficult?
If Sidharth Malhotra or Varun Dhawan would come up on the show then maybe them but apart from that I had no particular interest in seeing anyone strip. Yes, Katrina, she has abs but she didn’t take her shirt off.

Soha Ali Khan, Konkona Sen Sharma and Karan Johar are your best pals from Bollywood. Would you want to be with them on the other side of the couch?
I would love to be on the other side with Karan.

And be interviewed by?
By somebody who knows us really well. I wouldn’t mind swapping places with Shweta Bachchan Nanda. She actually has a whole bunch of questions to ask.

An actor’s life you would be interested in knowing about?
I would be interested in knowing more about Salman (Khan). He makes us believe that we know about him but we actually don’t. 

Is Neha Dhupia in love?
Not yet. I’m getting there.

Character-based roles are specially written in movies today and you are one of the actors who’s always known for character-based roles. What are the kind of characters you are looking out for?

I’m just looking out for interesting parts. I cannot look around and say that I am looking out for work where I’m going to be a woman where three hunks will be chasing me and it’s not going to happen. I’m pretty certain and that’s where my reality check is. My next film is with Karan Johar, a short film titled, ‘Ice-cream’. I’m also on the verge of signing something about which you’ll get to know by next week. I also have ‘Roadies’ coming up, for which I’ll be travelling to Arunachal Pradesh and living in a tent for a month. Soon after that I come and shoot for my film in February and then shoot for it again in April. My calendar is full till April and after that I don’t know what I am doing. The entrepreneur side in me may shine little bit through in 2018.

Kangana Ranaut has dropped yet another bombshell. During a podcast, the actor has revealed what prompted her to shun awards

Kangana Ranaut has dropped yet another bombshell. During a podcast, the actor has revealed what prompted her to shun awards. She has reportedly claimed that on one occasion, she was stuck in traffic and was running late. Realising that she would take a while to reach the venue, the organisers presented her Supporting Actor award for Life… In A Metro (2007) to Soha Ali Khan for Rang De Basanti (2006) instead.

On another occasion, she was told that she would be given a Supporting Actor award for Krrish 3 (2013), but as she was in the US and unable to fly down, the organisers gave it to Supriya Pathak for Ram Leela (2013) instead. Kangs has opened a Pandora’s box again.

Saif Ali Khan made a funny revelation at the launch of sister Soha Ali Khan’s book, ‘Perils of Being Moderately Famous’. The entire Pataudi family, along with husband, Kunal Kemmu were present there

Well, it’s not every day that you get to see the Pataudi family gathered all together under one roof. This iconic moment was witnessed at the maiden book launch of actress and now author, Soha Ali Khan. The book, ‘Perils of Being Moderately Famous’ is penned by the actress herself. To make the occasion a memorable one and extend their support to the Pataudi princess, the entire family from brother Saif Ali Khan, mother Sharmila Tagore, elder sister Saba Ali Khan, and husband-actor Kunal Kemmu to sister-in-law Kareena Kapoor Khan, were in attendance.

Every member shared the stage with Soha but when it was brother Saif’s turn, he said that Soha is a very sweet and generous person. He also recalled a hilarious date of Soha Ali Khan, where she almost embarrassed herself by calling the date ‘boring’. Being the gentleman that Saif is, he first took a ‘go ahead’ from Soha.

“She had gone out for dinner once. It was before she had met Kunal (Kemmu) (I hope he doesn’t mind me for saying it). It was kind of a date. He was a really wealthy guy, a big industrialist… he was talking to Soha and Soha was really bored… I don’t know if she was already seeing Kunal at that time (Kareena and Soha cut in saying, ‘No’) She just went out to be polite. So, a friend messaged her to ask how was it (the date) going and Soha replied saying, ‘It’s boring’. Only she messaged the guy. And now this is Soha – She asks the guy for his phone, takes it, deletes the message, hands over the phone and carries on. That’s my sister, Soha.”

Soha tied the knot with long-time boyfriend Kunal Kemmu on January 25, 2015, and the couple was blessed with a baby girl on September 29, 2017, who they named Inaaya Naumi Kemmu.

Soha Ali Khan had been advocating yoga during her pregnancy. She shared photos on her Instagram and showed how to stay fit during the nine months of pregnancy. Like her sister-in-law Kareena Kapoor Khan, Soha Ali Khan was up and about during her pregnancy. She endorsed stuff related to pregnant women like oils to keep stretch marks away and mineral water which is beneficial during the nine months. Unlike several Bollywood women who go missing as soon as they realise they are in the family way, Soha, like Bebo, did not shy away from shutterbugs.

In an interview earlier, Soha Ali Khan told Kareena Kapoor Khan had been giving her diet tips and more for expecting mothers. “Kareena has been very helpful. She recently went through this. So, I keep asking her a lot of questions on a daily basis. What should I eat, what is allowed, what isn’t,” Soha had said. “I really don’t know what to expect or how the journey ahead is going to be like,” she added.

When Soha Ali Khan took on Jimmy Shergill!

Jimmy Shergill declared that working with director Tigmanshu Dhulia is easy as you just have to go with a blank slate.

“I used to laugh at newcomers who came on the sets with a lot of preparation and then landed in trouble.”
