Actress Farah Naaz, who reigned during the 80s and 90s, was in for a rude shock when a team from a reality show reached unannounced at her residence in Oshiwara on February 2 and allegedly began shooting her and her 14-year-old son without her permission.

The furious actress has sent a legal notice to the channel and the production house.

The show is about contestants exchanging mothers, and how she fits into and adapts to her new family.

Farah, known for hits such as Naseeb Apna Apna and Love 86, lives with her son at Starship apartments in Oshiwara. In her legal notice a copy of which is available with Mumbai Mirror -Farah says that her privacy was invaded by the channel and the production house to boost the show’s TRP.

What has possibly complicated the matter is the fact- as brought out in the notice that one of the contestants is Vindoo Dara Singh, Farah’s ex-husband and father of her son. Singh is now married to Dina Unirovia, who is also participating in the show.

According to the format of the show Unirovia is required to take care of Tanaaz Irani’s children Zeus and Zianne and in turn Tanaaz is required to take care of Unirovia’s child.

Farah’s lawyer advocate Rizwan Siddiqui said that Farah and her son had never shown any interest to be part of this show More >

Stammering association sues Golmaal 3


The Indian Stammering Association (TISA) based in Dehradun is livid that Golmaal 3 mocks people who stammer; slams its makers with a suit

Kunal M Shah (MUMBAI MIRROR; November 15, 2010)

The title of the film now seems like a cruel irony because Golmaal 3 is in serious trouble. The film is a comedy but an organisation based in Dehradun took serious offence to the film: the Indian Stammering Association (TISA) sent a legal notice to the makers of the film accusing them of mocking people who stammer.

Our source said, “This association has taken the makers of this film to court for poking fun at a sect of people suffering from a disability. In Golmaal 3, Shreyas Talpade plays Laxman, who stammers and the other characters, played by Tusshar Kaporr, Kunal Khemu and Arshad Warsi, constantly make fun of him in the film.

The association has now sent a legal notice to the makers asking them to delete all the scenes where the character stammers.”

Apparently, the producers are in a fix now because the film has been released over a week ago and it is now practically impossible to remove or delete the scenes. Moreover, it would also not be commercially viable for them to do it at this stage. The source added, “The producers now plan to respond to the notice sent by the Uttarakhand court. And they must respond to it before a December 14 deadline.”
