The two play best friends in Haowa Badal, Parambrata’s second directorial venture. “I am very fond of Param because whether he is cast opposite me or is directing me, he always gives me acting tips,” smiled Raima, who plays his nagging wife in the film set to release on March 22.

The bride is back: Wrapping up a quick trip to the Golden Temple, Vrindavan and Agra, just-married Koel Mallick is back to work — shooting for the promos and billboards of ETV Bangla’s Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa Bangla, along with choreographer and ABCD maker Remo D’Souza (picture left). The two are the celebrity judges on the dance reality show to be hosted by Jisshu Sengupta. “Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa was a very popular show (on Colors) and I am a huge fan of Madhuri Dixit who was one of the judges. I love dancing and I am sure I will have a lot of fun judging the show,” smiled Koel, who will be off to east Europe next week with hubby Nispal Singh (Rane) for their honeymoon. “Being married is a great feeling, touchwood,” she smiled. For Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa Bangla, June will style Koel (picture right). “She is a new bride and she is glowing, so I’m going to give her everything, from dresses to skirts and saris,” said June, who is also the line producer for the show that goes on the floor in March.

The mermaid! Frolicking on the Kovalam beach and “digging into fresh seafish dishes after work” were the high points of Rituparna Sengupta’s first Malayalee film shoot. The actress was in Kerala for Kadaveedu, opposite Kunchako Boban and directed by Sohan Lal. “I had a blast! Kovalam is the most beautiful beach I’ve ever seen,” said Rituparna. In Kadaveedu, she plays a housewife who dies only to live on in the memories of her husband and her lover. “The unit was very warm and affectionate. They put a lot of stress on aesthetics and detailing,” she added.
