This month saw the entertainment industry loose not one but two members -

Actress Shammi Rabadi aka Choti Nani who is best known for her role in Dekh Bhai Dekh, passed away at the age of 89 due to prolonged illness.

Also, Dill Mill Gayye actor Karan Paranjpe, known for playing the male nurse, Jignesh in the show, too passed away due to a heart attack. May their souls rest in peace.

And about all other things that happened in March, read on.


Key changes in major shows that took place were - Shoaib Ibrahim stepped into Krip Suri's shoes in Jeet Gayi Toh Piya More and so did Divya Bhhatnagar who has been roped in to play Shoaib's mother, Naagin fame Pooja Sharma entered Dil Se Dil Tak as Bharat's (Jignesh Joshi) ex-lover, Ajay Mehra and Aanchal Khurana entered Zindagi Ki Mehek, Govind Khatri entered Tu Aashiqui as Anita's (Gauri Pradhan) brother and Pankti's (Jannat Zubair Rahmani) cruel uncle, Gaurav Mukesh and Kritika Sharma entered Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai as a part of a 'Dolly Ki Doli' kinda track, Alka Kaushal and Ssara Khan entered Woh Apna Sa in important plot twisting roles, Ayaz Ahmed and Rehaan Roy entered Agnifera, Mohit Chauhan and Jayati Bhatia entered Naamkarann as Zaan Khan's parents, Vishal Malhotra entered Yeh Pyaar Nahi Toh Kya Hai, Prachee Pathak re-entered Udaan, Charu Mehra entered Yeh Hai Mohabbatein, Poonam Pandey entered Ikyawann, Amrapali Gupta entered Kaleerein and Siddharth Arora stepped into Shaleen Malhotra's shoes as the new lead of Laado 2 - Veerpur Ki Mardaani.


Krip Suri made an exit from Jeet Gayi Toh Piya More as he did not want to age on-screen, Garima Jain quit Shakti... Astitva Ke Ehsaas Kii in search of better roles, Shaleen Malhotra's track in Laado 2 - Veerpur Ki Mardaani came to an end and so did that of actors Meghna Malik, Rituraj Singh, Ankit Raj and Adhhvik Mahajan. Vin Rana, Leena Jumani and Ruchi Savarn put down their papers this month and their characters will be bumped off with the 8-year time leap all set to happen in Kumkum Bhagya, Vikas Bhalla exited Udaan. In an unexpected turn of events, Anup Soni, who helmed the hosting of Crime Patrol for 8 years, bid his goodbyes to it.


A long list of actors suffered grave injuries this month - Karan Jotwani injured himself during a workout session, following which the actor is now wearing a cervical collar neck support belt. Naagin 3 lead, Pearl V Puri suffered a hairline injury on his hand and while working out Pearl lost balance and his entire body weight came on his fingers which resulted in the hairline fracture. Ssudeep Sahir was left with a torn ligament while playing football with his son. Vikas Bhalla puled a muscle while running for a scene. 


Colors launched one of its much-awaited shows, Bepannah, Sony TV is back with another unusual love story, Yeh Pyaar Nahi Toh Kya Hai, Star Plus launched its new show, Kullfi Kumarr Bajewala, Zee TV came up with their out-of-the-box love story, Ishq Subhan Allah and Star Bharat launched Chandrashekhar.


Detective Didi went off-air within 3 months of going on-air. Even Colors's Shani bid goodbye to the audience this month.


The hot new couple in tinsel town is Paras Chhabra and Pavitra Punia. The couple met during MTV BCL and cupid struck.

The leads of Star Bharath's Jiji Maa, Dishank Arora and Tanvi Dogra are rumoured to be in a relationship and are apparently inseparable on the sets.

Host Raghu Ram, post his divorce with wife Sugandha Garg, found love in Italian-Canadian singer, Natalie Di Luccio, who incidentally happens to be Eijaz Khan's ex. 

Actors Madhurima Tuli and Vishal Aditya Singh are the latest couple in town. The two star opposite each other in Ek Mayavi Prem Gaatha - Chandrakanta and that's where love blossomed.


Actors Kunal Jaisingh and Bharati Kumar got engaged in a hush-hush ceremony at Iskon Temple on 18th March.


Keith Sequiera and Rochelle Maria Rao tied the knot in Mahabalipuram, Tamil Nadu on the 4th of March. 

Dill Mill Gayye heartthrob Dr. Shubhankar aka actor Ayaz Khan tied the knot with his lady love, Amish Ayaz Khan. In fact, this news was announced by Ayaz's bestie, actor Karan Singh Grover.

Actors Abhinav Shukla and Rubina Dilaik announced that they will be marrying on the 21st of June in Shimla.


Actress Panchi Bora was blessed with a baby girl, Riyanna Patangia on 27th February.


Kapil Sharma and Sunil Grover got into a full blown fact stating argument on twitter over the latter's response to a fan's question on returning to Kapil's show.

Zee TV's Zindagi Ki Mehek leads Karan Vohra and Samiksha Jaiswal have apparently stopped conversing with each other after Karan's wife Bella had an altercation with Samiksha on the sets. With things taking an awkward turn, the on-screen pair have not been talking for sometime now.

Actress Upasana Singh encountered a horrifying experience wherein her taxi driver (who used to drive her to her shoot location and back to the hotel daily), drove her to a deserted area late night. The actress fortunately evaded an untoward situation with her presence of mind.

Actress Charu Asopa accused her ex-boyfriend, Neeraj Malviya of hugging and kissing her for footage on MTV BCL Season 3.

Zee TV's latest offering Ishq Subhanallah fell into troubled waters in its first week of airing, as some sections of the Muslim community found it to be demeaning to the religion and also hurting some religious beliefs and sentiments.

Ishqbaaaz makers came under the troll scanner recently when one of their scenes - Bhavya (Mansi Srivastava) kicking Saumya (Nehalaxmi Iyer) in the face, incurred the wrath of many on social media.

Comedy Circus ke Ajoobe fame, Siddharth Sagar who is popular for his act as Selfie Mausi recently went missing. And with the industry and fans getting worried, the comedian himself posted a video to give his fans and loved ones closure. In the video, he spoke about being harassed by his family and being mentally tortured. The actor also promised that he was soon going to open up completely about his tribulations and his tough period.

All in all, we can definitely say that we had a better month than January and February. With March lighting up a little, we expect that April will be lighting up on us.
