Maheck Chahal does a Mandakini!

Actress Maheck Chahal, who is making her fiction TV debut with "Darr Sabko Lagta Hai", has flaunted a sensual look in a white sari while she's playing with water -- a la actress Mandakini's famous shot from "Ram Teri Ganga Maili".

Maheck's Mandakini avatar will be seen in the upcoming episode of the horror series, which airs on &TV.

She will appear in the "Daayan" episode of the show, as a bewitchingly attractive girl Sukanya.

Talking about her choice of flaunting the sensual look, Maheck said in a statement: "I agreed to make an exception for 'Darr Sabko?' because the format is like a film and it was a short commitment. It was quite an experience."

The story of the episode will feature mysterious attacks in a forest where a photographer sees Sukanya and falls for her.

Hosted by actress Bipasha Basu, "Darr Sabko Lagta Hai" is a mini-series that consists of 26 episodes and showcases real life stories. The episode featuring Maheck will be aired on Saturday.


Karan V Grover sports nerdy look

Actor Karan V Grover has donned a nerdy look for his role in the upcoming TV show "Bahu Humari Rajni_kant", in which he essay a genius scientist named Shaan.

His character dedicates his life to learning science. He is an expert when it comes to science and mathematics, but is a little weak at understanding emotions and philosophy.

With nerdy glasses, messy hair and casual easy going outfit, Karan will be seen in a very simple yet different look altogether.

Talking about it, he said: "I don't normally wear glasses but for my character, I have to wear thick glasses to don a serious nerdy look. Although it is little difficult for me to manage my glasses while shooting, I am very happy with my costume as it is very comfortable and I feel like I am at home," Karan said in a statement.

"Personally, I am very calm and easy going but my character is hyper active. Yet I am loving my new look and very excited for the show," he added.

"Bahu Hamari Rajni_kant" highlights the never-ending expectations from a 'bahu' and how she tackles them.

Actress Ridhima Pandit will be paired with Karan in the show, which will be aired on Life OK.


Namik Paul has 'challenging' role in 'Ek Duje...'

Actor Namik Paul, who will be seen alongside Nikita Dutta in "Ek Duje Ke Vaste", says his never-give-up attitude gave him the confidence to say 'yes' to play a "challenging" role in the upcoming show.

Namik, best known for his role in popular show "Qubool Hai," will be seen as Shravan, who is very smart and ambitious by nature and a lawyer by profession.

"The role of Shravan is very strong and undoubtedly it is an challenging character for me to play, but I believe that challenges are a part of an actor's life," Namik said in a statement.

"I am very happy to have taken up this show as it has a very exceptional storyline," he added.

"Ek Duje Ke Vaste", which is touted as a unique love story, will be aired on Sony Entertainment Television.
