Weekly Music Video

At the beginning of 2017 I said I was going to do more Bollywood posts this year. It's now late August and I've only done 3! Still, I've got a few more months, lol. So here's a Bollywood video. It's for the song Ek Din Teri Raahoon Mein from the 2007 film Naqaab. Naqaab means "veil" or "mask" in English, similar to the word niqab, which means the veil that Muslim women wear.

The film is about Indian girl Sophia aka Sophie (played by Urvashi Sharma) who moves to Dubai after a bad experience with a stalker. She meets rich man Karan Oberoi (Bobby Deol) and gets engaged to him, but then falls in love with struggling actor Vicky (Akshaye Khanna). She decides to ignore her attraction and go ahead with the wedding only to have second thoughts at the last minute. After being left at the altar Karan commits suicide. However that's not all to the story....

This is a scene from a night out where Sophia and Vicky perform a dance together. It's a seductive dance and their attraction is obvious. Ek Din Teri Rahoon Mein is my favourite song from the film. It's sung by the playback singer is Javed Ali.


 


I saw Naqaaab quite a few years ago now. (Can't believe it's 10 years old!). I'd wanted to see it for a while at the time. It's one of those twist type films much like Humraaz (one of my favourite Bollywood films) which both Bobby and Akshaye also starred in. Both movies were directed by famous brothers Abbas-Mustan. Apparently Naqaab is a remake of the British/Spanish film Dot the I (which I've never seen but it does sound similar).

People have also commented that this song is a copy of American singer Mark Anthony's song When I Dream At Night and similar to Egyptian singer Amr Diab's Tamally Maak. To be honest some Bollywood films and songs are remakes/covers or very similar to foreign ones, and people have been accused of plagiarism before. I have Tamaally Maak and I suppose it is a bit similar but different beats; Tamally Maak starts off a bit slower. I just listened to When I Dream At Night and that is definitely the same music. You can watch the music video for both songs at the links below:

Unexpected Girls Updates

Back in September I did a post about the American reality TV show Unexpected. You can read it here: https://starsparklex.blogspot.com/2018/09/unexpected.html

There have been two seasons (or series as we also call it in the UK) so far. There will be a 3rd one  featuring mums Lexus, Mckayla and Chloe (Chloe joined in Series 2). Emiley who joined in Season 2, says she isn't returning (see below) so. Laura (who also joined in S2) will also not be back (see below for more on that). Original cast member Lexus shared a casting call on her Instagram page in November, so it seems the company is looking for new girls due to give birth from March to June 2019. Check out the post here; https://www.instagram.com/p/BpzfLAjg8ek/

The gossip site Starcasm also reports that Unexpected's producers are casting for a new programme: https://starcasm.net/unexpected-producers-casting-pregnant-teens-from-same-high-school-or-tap-program-for-new-reality-series/

Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant UK

The Teen Mom universe keeps growing! This month sees the start of a brand new spin-off- a UK version of Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant. The original Teen Mom, now re-named Teen Mom OG (itself a spin-off on the American reality show 16 and Pregnant, which follow pregnant teenagers) started in 2009 and there have been several other shows since- Teen Mom 2, Teen Mom 3 (cancelled after one season), Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant and Teen Mom: Young Moms Club (formerly Pretty Little Mamas). There have also been several international versions, including Teen Mom UK and Teen Mom Australia. Series 6 of TM: UK just finished and now the British version of Young and Pregnant is due to start next week.

TM: Young and Pregnant UK follows 4 new girls- Charlie, Alisha, Laura and Charlotte who are all expecting babies. When TM UK started only Mia Boardman was pregnant but this time all of the mums were pregnant during filming. (Which makes sense since this is "young and pregnant"! lol).

Unexpected

23/2/19: Updated with new links. :)

Unexpected (full title Unexpected: Teenage & Pregnant) is an American reality TV series following the lives of pregnant teenagers and their partners, and their journey into parenthood. It's the TLC version of the hit show 16 and Pregnant, which spawned the spin off Teen Mom. The first series/season was shown last year, and Series 2 was shown in the US this summer and has just started in the UK.

Season 1 followed  16 year old Lilly Bennett and her boyfriend James,  15 year old Lexus Scheller and boyfriend Shayden, 17, and Mckayla Adkins 16 and her boyfriend Caelan Morrison. Lilly gave birth to daughter Aaliyah Rose, Lexus had a daughter named Scarlett, and McKayla had son Timothy (Timmy).

All 3 of the girls' mums were also teen mothers, and in Lexus' case her grandmother was a teen mum too.


S2 catches up with Mckayla and Lexus, and introduce some new girls and their boyfriends. I'm focusing mainly on the girls here, like with my Te…
