Contestants r paid on a reality show…
Bigboss is the worst t.v. reality show,with cheap contestants showing just useless drama,which is preplanned just for getting high trp..
Instead one should watch shows like KBC,DID,Comedy nights with kapil.

Arman Kohli was in jaani dushman,which is regarded as worst bollywood movie ever…
Don’t know how actors like akki,sunny deol and sunil shetty agreed to do that film.

@Babajikathullu Jani Dushman might have been the worst movie of its time but now it has gained a cult status and that’s why it’s frequently telecasted on Zee Cinema.
