Welcome readers to my blog, as you all know tht its been 6 months since I started writing!! as mentioned in my earlier blogs i used to note all the info which liked but had no knwon source to share it …then when i came in to this writing blog business….

And also you all should by now be knowing that I have another blog going on which I update on daily basis …its abt the show “Miley Jab Hum Tum” airing on Star one, its link is :

….so I’ve been getting very less time to update this blog recently but now as the ITA awards will be awarded to out favorite stars of Television ….so here I’m again with the latest update of these awards!!

And so the awards night begins with:

The Curtain Raiser:

It began with the curtain raiser of ITA awards with Afsha n Dhairya (hosts of Zee TV’s Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Li’l Champs) …..they started meeting the artists of various serial from different channels and asking them sweet questions like first they met Naitik–Akshara, then with both the couples of Bidaai …n also they were with Prem n Heer…n many more.

Then, later in the curtain raiser they take us to the sets of ITA n there too they meet up artist who’ll be performing at the awards like Barkha Bisht, Veer (Nandish) n Tapsya …n also they meet Manav n Archana n asks him ‘in the serial they are almost at the edge of being divorced n so why are they performing together here ..what if Manav’s aai (mom) found out ..what will happen??’ this Manav (Sushant) is making faces ….b Afsha acting like his Mom throws slaps his way …hahaha!! how cute his smile was awww

Ok then comes the Red Carpet of ITA, with Dhairya n Afsha again  ….n so begins the entries of televisions beautiful stars …n Dhairya n Afsha start interacting with them n asking questions like ‘why awards take place at night? …if a kid passes KG what song will he sing (KG kiya re, KG kiya re…) n so on.

Then comes the time of main award function, where the hosts for the evening take over n they are Gaurav Gera n Sunil Grover (they were also the host of Hans Baliye!)


After the show had its formal beginning the hosts introduced the audience with the Jury members …n they were all famous personalities of the entertainment business, experts of their fields…

Then cam the first performance of the evening by charming Tamanna, Syantini nad Barkha Bisht ….they all had their parts to perform on the song ‘All the Best’ n they were wearing some Mexican carnival sort of white dresses.

This led the way to the announcement of winners from the technical field, in which awards like best visual effects, lyrics of title song, etc were given. I only took note of two coz they involved my favorites, as in

Best Music to Lalit Sen for Ballika Vadhu; and

Best Singer to Sonu Nigam for Dill Mil Gaye!!

Then as these awards were wrapped up, the host cracked a joke saying, ‘people should go n buy the cars of TV stars …the asked ‘why?’  ….so the first one replied ‘as it is they out of 24hrs, spend 17-18 on the sets n the car is just wasted parked outside, So…

But it’s a great pleasure that our car of ITA has been running successfully since 9yrs …so we move ahead..

And so begins the sizzling performance of Shaleen n Daljit on a parody of three songs; first ‘mera naam chin-chin choo’ …then ‘Roop tera mastana’…n then final song ‘Ser par topi lal haath mein reshm ka rumal ho tera kya kehna..’ ….they were looking just so sensational while performing!!

Then, the first set of awards, which were selected by the Jury members. The first one was–

First came Alisha Singh to perform …followed by Siddhesh, who on the tunes of a Marathi song did MJ style of steps  …then finally came Salman Khan (winner of DID 1) …n he too on the tunes of an Indian song, had the steps of MJ!! They all were super fabulous in their dancing …much improved than before.

Then he was joined in by Archana (Ankita Lokhande), who in her bluish-purple top n black shining shorts, also wearing a cap was looking so cute n adorable. They performed on a parody of four songs:
