Shweta Tiwari has become small screen’s big star after winning Bigg Boss 4

SHE has come a long way since she played Prerna in Kasautii Zindagii Kay. Today, Shweta Tiwari is one of the busiest stars on the small screen, especially after winning Bigg Boss 4. Recently, she performed an item number on song Darling from the film Saat Khoon Maaf to boost the TRPs of Zee TV’s flagship serial Yahaan Main Ghar Ghar Kheli. The offers are pouring in, though she is declining many. Shweta has also turned producer and is planning a number of serials for various channels. Another reason why she’s nixing new offers is her rising stock in Bollywood. Though she’s so far done cameos in B-Grade films like Madhoshi, Abracadabra and Benny & Babloo, a number of top film banners are adding her to their list of most-wanted stars. Once confined to the starlet category, Shweta is suddenly seeing stars all around her.

Rock-ing comedy

With 22 nominations, it set a record at the Emmy’s in 2009. In fact, ever since 2007 it has been winning the Emmy Award for the most outstanding comedy series. 30 Rock from Monday to Friday at 9 p.m. on FX Channel stars Golden Globe winner Alec Baldwin as a top TV channel executive and Tracy Jordan (Tracy Morgan) as the unpredictable star of the channel’s hit variety show, TGS with Tracy Jordan. Baldwin constantly has his hands full with off-the-handle star antics from Jordan, all the while attempting to salvage his own personal life. This madcap comedy will have you smiling from the word go. NF
