With Chandni Chowk To China getting ready for release, this week's special guest on 'Oye! It's Friday!' is none other than Deepika Padukone. What makes the episode special is the fact that Farhan Akhtar celebrates his birthday in this episode where there are tons of surprises and gifts galore. The episode travels from Chandni Chowk To China with Deepika Padukone and then to Mumbai with the latest item-hotty Sherlyn Chopra who comes up with a sizzling performance. Add to that some action from Sweden with Mattias Lindstrom and his spectacular 'Man on wheels' - all of which makes this week's episode worth remembering.
- Deepika's love for Ranbir is a known fact. However, expect some more sweet nothings as Farhan gets candid with the beautiful Deepika Padukone while chatting about her relationship with Ranbir Kapoor. Deepika also shares her experience working with Akshay Kumar in CC2C.
- Deepika also narrates her hopes and dreams of settling down and getting married. Of course, she also talks about her new found friendship with none other than Sonam Kapoor, whose Delhi 6 would be releasing just a few weeks after CC2C.
- It becomes a full on fun outing as there is a very special surprise for Farhan Akhtar in the form of his dad's (the renowned lyricist and writer Javed Akhtar) visit on the show. Giving everyone a surprise visit, Javed Akhtar wishes his son a very Happy Birthday, only to continue chatting with Deepika. Expect some naughty talks in the offering as the loving dad reveals quite a few of Farhan's secrets and childhood pranks!
- In the true tradition of fun being a dominant factor on 'Oye! It's Friday!', Deepika also goes on to endorse, hold your breath, 'Oye Hair product'!
- Deepika is known for her towering height. Well, Farhan eventually gets the right measurements of her, well for height of course, by bringing a measuring tape on the show, making her stand upright and hold the tape from the top as he places the other end on her feet. Wanna guess her real height?
- As is known by one and all by now, for her upcoming film Chandni Chowk To China, Deepika Padukone underwent rigorous training in martial arts. Not someone to just believe in hearsay (in lighter vein of course), Farhan put her training to the test by asking her to break a 3 layered brick! Not to be taken for a ride by someone, the young lady convinced Farhan to do the deed instead! Did Farhan manage to break the brick or break his hand?
- Talking about stunts, Deepika demonstrates her prowess as a 'stunt queen', as learnt in Chandni Chowk To China, in the show. Watch out for her next move!
- Mattias Lindstrom from Sweden gets an international touch and class to the show and comes up with an unbelievable 'Man on wheels' act! He has been known globally for his spell-binding and awe-inspiring 'Cyre Wheel' act since 1999, hence making this segment belong to 'Don't Miss This One' category!
- Watch out for some 'Balle Balle' as 'Bhangra Power' comes on full force with Farhan being the center of attraction. There are quite a few professional 'bhangra' dancers who storm the show and make Farhan join them for the jig. That's not at all as Javed Akhtar and Deepika too are not to be left behind and match the steps!
- Meanwhile hot and steamy Sherlyn Chopra makes sure that it's not just Deepika who entertains Farhan on his birthday special. She sets the stage on fire with her sizzling bold performance of Dard-e-Sherlyn and 'Khawaab Dekhe Jhoothe Moothey' [Race].
- The fun and dance continues with Deepika getting back to the 'Dhoom Tana' [Om Shanti Om] act. What makes her revive the dance number? Well, she teaches none other than Farhan Akhtar the steps and the 'amrapali mudra' made ever-so-memorable by Farah Khan!
- The Om Shanti Om fun isn't limited to 'Dhoom Taana'. Farhan Akhtar gets into his jovial best as he imitates Deepika's much remembered scene 'Ek Chutki Sindoor' from the film.
- There are some somber moments in the show as well with Farhan Akhtar trying his hand at piano. In the last episode it was Priyanka's chance to play drums while this week it is Farhan himself taking his piano lessons. 'Oye! It's Friday!' is turning out to be some musical show!
This one is slated to be a fun, touching and electrifying episode. Don't miss 'Oye! It's Friday!' on 9th January 2009 at 10:00 PM only on NDTV Imagine.
