Bhade takes on the problem of a housewife

In this weekend’s episode, Bhade will be seen taking away the problem of a housewife, and ends up landing his own wife in trouble

IMG_1963.JPGWith a unique knack of taking away the problems of those around him and bringing in a comical situation every weekend, Bhade is a blessing in disguise for many. While making a few happy by taking away their problems, his kindness also results in his family members at most times being ticked off with him for putting them through unnecessary troubles. Making his wife – Sushma, go through one such problem this week, Bhade will be seen taking away the problem of a housewife.

Receiving a call from Bhade’s elder sister – Gauri Didi in the middle of the night, Sushma is paranoid after hearing the news of her coming to visit them as Gauri Didi is not very fond of Sushma. Hearing the news, Bhade promises Sushma to help her stay out of trouble when his scheming Gauri Didi comes to visit them. As he reaches office that morning, forgetting the promise he had made to his wife, Bhade ends up taking the problem of a housewife, who frets over little house-hold matters and is obsessed with the minutest details of housework. By taking away the problem, Bhade sends the housewife and her husband on a peaceful two day vacation as he forgets the promise he made to his wife that very morning only to land Sushma in trouble. But as it turns out, while taking on her traits he overlooks the cautionary warning which is Matsyagandha’s penchant for acting like a vamp, and scheming and manipulating matters for full control of house affairs. Thus he returns home with this, and even though he tells Sushma he is going to help her, he ends up creating a mess for her, by pointing out to Gauri Didi how he has to do everything around the house and Sushma doesn’t even lift a finger. By the end of it Sudhma gives up on Bhade and threatens him to leave the house, when Gauri Didi intervenes and tells them that as a sister-in-law, it is her duty to nitpick on her bhabhi but not at the cost of breaking her brother’s marriage.

What began as a disastrous situation, finally turned into a problem solver because of Bhade’s knack of taking away problems. But the question that remains is, will the housewife whose problem Bahde has taken, comeback to take her problem away or will Bhade be forced to keep the problem with him?

Ranbir rejected by director Imtiaz Ali!

Director Imtiaz Ali may have made a Rockstar out of Ranbir, but he isn’t letting friendship come in the way of his creative vision! zoOm found out that Imtiaz, though very fond of Ranbir, has rejected his request of being a part of Highway.

Sources revealed to zoOm that the star was privy to the rushes of Imitiaz’s next venture ‘Highway’ and was unable to curtail his excitement. That’s not all! The star also requested for a role to be specially scripted for him in the movie even if it was a cameo or a guest appearance. The heartthrob had no qualms even if the role was extremely minor as long as he was a part of the film. So what made the filmmaker refuse the star who he believes is his biggest motivation?

Given that guest appearances is the new trend in tinsel town and every flick big or small banks on it, Imitiaz seems to be determined to keep business away from pleasure. Does the visionary feel including Ranbir will overshadow the lead pair- Alia Bhatt and Randeep Hooda or does he feel the curiosity behind Ranbir’s love life will steal the media focus during promotions? For the latest and biggest stories from Bollywood, stay tuned to Planet Bollywood News every day at 7 pm only on zoOm – India’s No. 1 Bollywood Channel.

Commando, his first as a leading man, made an impact for its action sequences and the former model, whose name today is synonymous with daredevilry, is now preparing for what he hopes will be a turning point in his career.
