Shobhana Bhartia

On another note - I hear a strong rumour that CK is on his way out and that the aforementioned lady will take over direct editorial control. Just a rumour, but remember, you heard it here first!

If Shobhana had to take direct editorial control, wouldn't she have done so many years ago? After all Daddy gave her the paper on a platter for her dahej. She's conducted herself better than the Jain bandhu all these years, at least that's my impression of her.

So The V has made the great leap to TV-dom. Hope this works out well for him.

Congratulations Famous Media people.
May I take over the world after you?

Honestly though, waiting for the day when the media biggies (MEDIA) get into interactive entertainment seriously.
