Weekly Music Video

Today's video is Akh Lad Jaave from the new Bollywood film Loveyatri. It's about Sushrut (played by Aayush Sharma) who is planning to become a Garba (Indian dance) teacher, and falls in love with NRI (Non resident Indian) college student Michelle (Warina Hussain) who is visiting India from the UK. They meet at the festival of Navarati/Navratri, which takes place during 9 days in September and October. After Michelle returns home Sushrut plans to go to London to see her again.

Directed by Bollywood star Salman Khan, the movie's original title was "Loveratri" but it was changed after there was controversy over the title due to it sounding similar to Navratri. Its full title is Loveyatri: Journey of Love and I've seen the English titles "Love Travellers" and "Love Will Take Over" online.

Loveyatri was released on 5th October. The playback singers for Akh Lad Jaave are Asees KaurJubin Nautiyal and rapper Badshah.

Navaratri celebrates the Goddess Durga and other goddesses including Lakshmi and Saraswati. Navaratri (also spelt Navarathi) means "Nine Nights" in Sanskrit. I hadn't heard of it before, but I have heard of its other name Durga Puja. Read more about the festival at these links:

Interesting info: Lead actor Aayush is married to director Salman's sister Arpita Khan. Both he and lead actress Warina are making their debut in Bollywood films, although Warina has previously starred in TV ads.

Unexpected Girls Updates

Back in September I did a post about the American reality TV show Unexpected. You can read it here:

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;

The gossip site Starcasm also reports that Unexpected's producers are casting for a new programme:

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).



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…
