Whether it's trying to sell cheap cheese to the French, hurtling around the markets of Dubai or Michael Sophocles struggling to get his head around kosher chicken in Marrakech, the trips abroad have produced some classic blunders.
This year, the candidates got an extra special treat from Lord Sugar and were flown over to New York. Well, some of them were.
In a piece of evil cunning worthy of Blofeld, Sugar allowed half the teams to head over to the Big Apple to pitch to big advertising execs. The other half had to remain in Luton, slogging their guts out in the rain.
The candidates took the decisions from the Project Managers on who went to New York (funnily enough, both PMs opted to plonk »
Labelled as the worst-kept secret of Bollywood, casting couch is a blot that the industry seems not to be able to get rid of.
Casting couch is again in the limelight after actress Geetika Tyagi, recently seen in One by Two, publicly accused director Subash Kapoor of molesting her about a year and a half ago. The actress shared a video on Youtube where she confronted the director of Jolly Llb and his wife. Director Atur Sabharwal, who is been supporting the actress on her decision, is also seen in the video.
Subhash admits in the video that there was a sexual encounter with the actress but denies that he attempted to force himself on her. “I have no defence at the moment. Last one-and-a-half year there hasn’t been a single day when that incident hasn’t crossed my mind. I have never been a part of anything remotely like this. »

CCTVs are no longer enough to protect producers and directors from the potential threat of being accused by aspirants of sexual misconduct. The alarming buzz doing the rounds in the entertainment industry is a complete ban on all interaction with newcomers. A leading filmmaker known for his high-gloss glamorous passionate films says, "If this can happen to a guy as gentle as Subhash Kapoor it can happen to anyone. I had already made up my mind to keep all interaction with newcomers at the lowest ebb. Now I've decided to completely ban meetings and conversations with aspirants." And we are not talking about only actors. Even aspiring directors, lyricists, musicians and technicians have come to a zero-access stage with established filmmakers. Forget a big break. All hopes of any kind of breakthrough are now broken. The matter of filmmaker Subhash Kapoor's public run-in with starlet Geetika Tyagi has re-opened »
Stars come and go on this show. Some entertain, some make us yawn. But this time, Karan Johar brought to his couch the not so social yet popular for his numerous kisses on screen actor Emraan Hashmi. The second guest of the night is probably the most transparent filmmaker of the industry at present, Mahesh Bhatt. This episode was nothing like a usual filmy chat, but instead we not only had moments that left us speechless but also got an insight on this side of cinema that is still being experimented with.
Emraan Hashmi is barely seen on the off sets scenario, and as even K Jo pointed out we have never seen his wife. “I did try to experiment the peripherals of the industry but I realised that I don’t enjoy it. It’s not my thing. Since I don’t watch Bollywood films, what do I even talk about at film parties? »
