Shabbir Ahluwalia Articles
Frankly, it was a surprise to see him getting the 'Best Devar' award at the Star Parivaar nite. How can the Best Devar impregnate a girl and live-in with her sister? Pat comes the defense. "Still, there's something loveable about Rishi. That's why you are here, aren't you?" Can we argue?
A hardcore Mumbaiite, Shabbir Ahluwalia, Rishi of Kahiin To Hoga to his several fans, would have been a great sportsman if not an actor. He's played soccer for Bombay University, baseball at the national level. "I also used to play a lot of cricket. But now, there is no time for sport," laments Shabbir. His day, nevertheless, still starts with a game of squash or badminton followed by a swim, "if I have not had a very late night shoot."

That can be very embarrassing"
Lounging in a casual tee and jeans at a suburban Cafe Coffee Day on a lazy Sunday afternoon, he orders a cold coffee. While I'm still dithering between a latte and a mocha, he takes us by surprise, saying, "I know what you want to know. Is the real Rishi as flamboyant and naughty as the reel one?" Bingo! But those twinkling eyes are loath to reveal more. "That's for you to guess. I am not here to disclose everything about myself," he shoots back laughingly.
One more sip into the cold beverage, the youngest sibling of an ex-army personnel says, "Believe it or not, I am a very shy and reticent guy. No girlfriends, no bikes, no parties. I would rather spend my free time with my parents or catch up on some film on DVD."
Apparently having noticed my wide eyed expression, he grins. "It's just a role that I am playing. Ekta Kapoor does not flesh out characters whose personal life matches the requirements of her script."
But he plays it so convincingly, especially the sly smile, the shake of the head, the mischievous glint in the eye. He outdid himself when he disguised himself as Mrs Braganza (the track which was meant to be a two-day affair was extended to 15 days, the soaring TRPs having taken the call!).
"That's simply acting, yaar. I knew I had to leave some impression with this role, else I would have ended up as an also-ran," he explains. Sour memories of the abrupt end to his character in Kyunki....? For those with a memory that needs jostling, he played Suhasini's son, Aniket.
"Rishi will continue being Rishi. Does a man ever change?"
He elaborates, "You tend to forget that I don't have the same mannerisms in Kahaani... where I (Soumil) am diametrically the opposite of Rishi. I have been lucky. Soumil is this very nice, sophisticated, enterprising guy... He's got values, he is a good businessman- someone who every father would want his daughter married to. Again, I am not exactly like Soumil.''
But we can't digest the fact that such a handsome hunk does not have a girlfriend, or rather, girlfriends.
He again laughs and it's some time till he can talk? "Again my character is doing the trick. Believe me, I strongly believe in the institution of marriage. I will fall in love only when I have marriage in mind. And I abhor the casual attitude of today's youngsters who change partners with every season. Casual sex and live-in relationships are not my cup of tea," he points out. Phew!
Go on, tell us you don't even get any messages and calls too, huh Rishi, err, Shabbir?
Pat comes the reply. "Did I say that? Of course I do," he straightens up. "Actually, I receive umpteen messages and calls from girls who say that they want to go out with me, blah, blah, blah," and he blushes, but quickly recovers, "But I cut them short. It may sound rude, but I can't misuse my popularity.'"
Is Shabbir less popular with females than his counterpart Rajeev Khandelwal (Sujal)? "I don't know how many messages Rajeev gets every day, but I know for sure that I am a very contented soul today. Being popular with females when you play negative roles is not easy. Think of it, I am enjoying the incentive. Thank God no female knows my email id as yet. Else my mailbox would have been spammed," he winks.
Films? "Yes. I am talking to a filmmaker who wants me in the lead, essaying a very crazy character. I hope it works out, so that I can go ahead and adjust my dates," but quickly adds, "I will never stop being Rishi till Kahiin To Hoga ends. Even if I get a plum offer in Bollywood, I will adjust my dates and balance both."
The guy who does not mess with girls, follows a similar pattern with his directors. "I don't question my director. I don't demand more scenes and dialogues. For me, one scene is enough every day," he says.
Will Rishi who pulls off the role with such style, ease and charm, despite no formal training in acting, ever change? Plainly speaking, will he mend his ways? On date, the chances seem pretty high; last week he wedded Sanjana. He lets us in, ''So what? Sanjana or no Sanjana, Rishi will continue being Rishi. Does a man ever change?"
Point taken, Mr. Incorrigible Flirt.

Shabbir Ahluwalia, the famous Rishi of Kahin to Hoga and the most lovable Milind in Kayamat, has shown his mettle in films, too. This star, who had made his filmy debut with Apoorva Lakhia?s Shootout At Lokhandwala, is all set to team up again with the same director for Mission Istanbul. Let?s check him out with his new mission.
Q. How different is your character in Mission Istanbul from the one you played in Shootout at Lokhandwala?
A. It?s very different from what I played in Shootout. My character in Mission Istanbul is of a terrorist whose name is Khali. First time I am playing something which is so black and negative. Khali is a born negative character, a very hardcore one.
Q. Are you feeling the pressure with your second film after been appreciated for the good performance in your first film?
A. There is no nervousness at all. The whole process is enjoyable, it is like taking care of baby after getting the script till the film?s release, preparing the character and so on which is a complete journey. Filmmaking is always enjoyable.
Q. Your first meeting with Apoorva?
A. Apoorva first saw me in Kahin To Hoga and after that we met each other where he told me about the character along with a presentation for Shootout? and I said ?yes? to him at that very moment looking at the script and the cast in it.
Q. Had you have ever though about films at the time you were busy for television?
A. Yes. Of course, because when you are in this line you really think of films. Every actor wants to be a part of films. So, films were in the back of my mind but at the same time I also believed that I will do only those films with the subjects in which I really believe.
Q. Any special preparation for the character you are playing in Mission Istanbul?
A. Before playing this character I thought that I will meet the biggest terrorist in the world but unfortunately I didn?t get the chance (laughs). Jokes apart, you can?t prepare for this kind of roles. Whatever one knows about a terrorist is through television or internet. So whatever you present on screen is all your imagination.
Q. How was it working with Apoorva?
A. I think he is the finest director we have in our country now. He is young, enthusiastic director and it?s always fun and nice working with him.
Q. Your chemistry with Vivek Oberoi as you have worked with him earlier also?
A. Vivek is a dear friend and it?s very nice to work with him. He is a fine actor as well. I enjoyed working with him in Shootout? and now it?s pleasure working with him in our second film.
Q. Your fans, especially ladies, love you for whatever you do. What would you like to say to them about you playing a negative character again?
A. Now I am feeling a little nervous that my fans don?t get disappointed with me (laughs). I started my career with a negative character called Rishi in Kahin to Hoga, but still everyone liked me. So audiences love their actors for their presentation and not only for their characters. I will try and do whatever makes my fans feel good about me.
Q. Any unusual incident with any of your crazy fans?
A. I have all different kinds of fans and I have a special place for each one of them, so I would not like to comment on any of my fans.
Q. How do your fans react to you when they come to meet you?
A. When I was doing Rishi I got different reactions and now when I am playing Milind I am getting different reactions altogether. So it keeps changing. But the love I used to get from them is still with me and I am happy with that only.

I can't remember a specific incident related to Raksha Bandhan, but there's a somewhat unrelated event that I'll never forget.
My sister was so hurt when I did this and she did not talk to me for one whole month. That included the Raksha Bandhan day!
23rd December 2007: Action Force PaintBall has been offered to the city by three dynamic and adventurous individuals - Chetan Hansraj, Jujhar Kochhar and Bangalore based Kiran Soans. Last night they played host to an eclectic mix of people who came in and battled out with splashes of paint at Khar Gymkhana grounds.
Spotted teaming up and indulging in this strategic sport that enhances one?s quick reflexes and ups the adrenaline rush were Shabbir Ahluwalia, Bakhtiyar Irani, Manav Goyal, Kushal Punjabi, Shilpa Sakhlani and Apurva Agnihotri, Baba Sehgal, Rakesh & Rajiv Paul, Amit Sareen, Pooja Ghai Rawal, Pooja Pariani, Anusha, Urvashi Dholakia, Manoj, Suved Lohia, Praveen Sirohi, Asif Bamla and the like.
AFPB is the first to bring this extremely exiting sport of Paintball into the city of Mumbai. Three true adventurers Chetan Hansraj a television actor /Adventurer & also winner of Fear Factor in 2006 , Jujhar Kochhar a businessman from the liquor trade and Kiran Soans, Owner of Mercureal Adventures which is the first company to bring Paintball in India in 2005 have got together in partnership to introduce this sport.
The first of its kind, Action Force Paintball adds yet another feature to adrenaline pumping adventure sports with a new venture that is guaranteed to make you paint your town a bright red. Professionally set-up and productively managed, this field sport can be played with a group of friends, colleagues, and families. Apart from that, it can also be an effective team building activity for organizations and corporates. And what?s more?
Paintball makes Stag parties, Birthday parties and Hen parties much more entertaining and creative?
The Bitch's source informs, "Shabbir has fallen big time for pretty Panchi. He follows her around everywhere. But Panchi doesn't seem to be interested. He has been seen trying to spend time with her in the vanity van. She tries to dodge the uncomfortable situation every time and he simply refuses to give up."
Their on screen chemistry is just awesome and the popularity that the Jodi of Milind-Prachi commands from the viewers is just mind-blowing! Together, the love birds have been christened 'MiChi(Mi from Milind and Chi from Prachi) by their loyal fans. It has also been reported that their fans had sent petitions to the channel demanding the union of the most-loved couple, during the tough phase where the duo were to get divorced in Kayamath.
This serial brought in a remarkable change with the introduction of Shabbir in Prachi's life. When the serial had begun, it was Neev-Prachi(Jay Bhanushali plays Neev) love story that was being talked of. But the story took a turn when Prachi got married to Milind and there has been no looking back for the actors, as they have gone from strength to strength in showing a sparkling chemistry to their viewers.
The Bitch tried to get in touch with Shabbir, but obviously he remained unavailable for comment.
Well, it looks like the amazing on screen chemistry has enthused Shabbir to go all out in real life too!!
