The Reliance-Ramoji-TV18 deal continues to baffle observers as several questions emerge from this deal which has politics, business and media in varying measures.

Suman, the bull on the small screen!

0 on November 28, 2011, 10:20 am / in Editor's Pick, TV

Suman is back with a vengeance. He has been making TV films left, right and centre of late. And acting in them with such relish. And showing them on ETV with such fanfare. The man who is heir to a media empire has been making himself a laughing stock with his amateurish, anachronistic, run-of-the-mill gaudy flicks that seem completely out […]
