Deepak Qazir
Deepak Qazir, who played the role of the patriarch of the Agarwal family in Kahaani Ghar Ghar Kii and also acted in Kasautii Zindagi Kay, has suddenly disappeared from the telly circuit.

The reason cited by some of his friends is Deepak's close friendship with Meetu, a creative head who works on Sunjoy Wadhwa's Saath Phere.

Platonic friendship

In her late twenties, Meetu has previously worked on Kahaani Ghar Ghar Kii and Sarrkkar. "Deepak is very fond of Meetu. They meet often.

Everyone who knows Deepak is aware of his special friendship with her."

Deepak defends friend

We asked Deepak about this "dosti". "We are very good friends," he said, referring to Meetu. "I call her almost everyday. She has an amazing sense of humour and I love her jokes. But beyond that, there is nothing." What about the buzz that the two friends spend long hours together? "That is silly. She is a young woman, and such talk could damage her reputation," cautions the actor.

It's my life, Meetu

When questioned about her friendship with the older man, Meetu initially refused to comment.

"Who's interested in what's going on with Deepak Qazir and my life?" After much prodding, she said, "For the last five years, no one has written about the fact that I have worked on so many big shows. I don't want to comment about this issue at all."

However, just when we thought the lady wouldn't break her silence, she blurts out, "Whatever is between Deepak Qazir and me, only we know. I do not think anyone else needs to be told. People will anyway say what they have to, irrespective of what my opinion is. I would rather talk about my work — I have worked on shows like Kahaani Ghar Ghar Kii, Sarrkar, and now Saat Phere."

Ekta wanted to kill me

About quitting Kasautii and Kahaani, Deepak has no regrets, "I had nothing to do except stand in the background and do small scenes. Ekta wanted to let me out by killing me on both shows, and I was okay with that." With less work, he is now concentrating on his health.

"I have lost around nine kilos, and find myself in much better shape than before." The actor is currently working on Ravi Chopra's new show, Virasat and Sunjoy Wadhwa's Don, starring Parmeet Sethi, on Star Plus.

Aamir Ali and Minissha Lamba come close
   By: Vickey Lalwani
   October 24, 2005

Minissha Lamba
Aamir Ali, who plays Samir Kaul in Kahaani Ghar Ghar Kii, is rumoured to be involved with two actresses — Minissha Lamba and Mahek.

Recently Aamir and Minissha were seen at many social gatherings and parties together.

Says a source, "Minissha and Aamir met through common friends. They've known each other for nearly a year, but the proximity has intensified only in the last four months."

Aamir Ali
Alibag romance?

Mahek and Aamir have been linked together in the past. The duo became close on the sets of Hansal Mehta's forthcoming directorial, Anjaan. According to a unitwalla, "Aamir and Mahek came very close on the outdoor shoot in Alibag.

They spent a lot of time together late at night. But now, Aamir is spending more time with Minissha. They're together almost every evening. Mahek and he are still close, but they are less serious and their relationship has become more casual."

When contacted, Aamir denies Minissha is his girl. "Minissha is a good friend," he says. And Mahek? "I've known Mahek a very long time, but we never had anything going between us."

Mahek: We had no scene

When contacted, Mahek, who made her film debut in Nayi Padosan and danced to Sajna Ve Sajna in Chameli, was cool. "I did have a boyfriend sometime back, but we parted ways. I wouldn't like to name him, but let me clarify that he was not from the industry."

Was Aamir Ali part of her life when they shot for Anjaan? "I've known Aamir Ali for six years, when he used to fly with Sahara. I am not seeing him. We had no scene in Alibagh. At the moment, I am single."

Says another source, "Aamir is becoming quite a ladies' man these days. He came with Pooja Kanwal for the premiere of Monster-In-Law. Soon after, I spotted him with Minissha."

Minissha, who debuted with Yahaan, was unavailable for comment.

Minissha Yahaan hai...

Post Yahaan, Minissha has been signed for Madhur Bhandarkar's Corporate, starring Bipasha Basu and Kay Kay Menon in main roles.

Besides Anjaan, where he plays the stranger in the house to whom the wife Mahek is attracted, Aamir, introduced in Hansal Mehta's sex comedy Yeh Kya Ho Raha Hai, will be seen in the title role in Raghu, with Kay Kay and Ishaa Koppikar. Raghu, also directed by Hansal Mehta, is complete.

Mohnish no more part of Kasamh Se
   By: Vickey Lalwani
   October 24, 2005

Mohnish Behl
Actor Mohnish Behl will not be part of Balaji Telefilms' forthcoming show on Zee, Kasamh Se (originally titled Kaanchi). Mohnish shot for Kasamh Se for a day in Powai, but quit after he was approached to don the garb of Suyash Mehra in Kahaani Ghar Ghar Kii.

Time factor

Parmeet Sethi
When contacted, Behl said, "Yes, it's true that I am not going to be part of Kasamh Se. After I shot for the show for a few hours, I landed KGGK. The role in KGGK is very meaty; even the Kasamh Se role was quite substantial, and I couldn't do plum roles in two dailies as I would need more than 24 hours a day."

Isn't one of the reasons that Behl doesn't shoot beyond 7 pm? "Yes, I shoot for television from 10 to 7 pm; I don't believe in shooting beyond 7 pm unless there is an emergency or technical error."

Explaining why he shoots late hours for films, the actor says, "In films, we work shifts. I can't go on for 17 hours in a day, or the quality suffers. I want to come to the sets with a spring in my stride — I hate dragging my feet."

Behl was supposed to play the middle sister's husband, Jai Walia in the serial. Sandeep Sikcand, creative head for Kasamh Se, says, "That was the original plan.

Now, the story has undergone changes, plus Mohnish is very busy with KGGK, so we are looking at others who can fit the bill. Jai Walia is a big character. It makes a lot of sense to keep Mohnish in one daily. Plus, Kasamh Se, originally supposed to be just three times a week, has now become five times a week," adds Sikcand.

Will Raj do it?

We hear that Parmeet Sethi (Raj of Jassi) has been approached to play Jai Walia. Sethi confirmed to hitList that he had received the offer. "But I haven't met Balaji on this, yet," the actor said. Before Behl, Balaji had thought of Kumar Gaurav for the role. The deal with Gaurav did not materialise because of money issues.

Kasamh Se — a story of three sisters Bani (Prachi Desai), Pia (Roshni Chopra) and Rano (Arunima Sharma) — is scheduled to air next month.

Parvati returns on KBC 2
   By: Chaitanya Padukone
   October 21, 2005

Saakshi Tanwar
Even as you read this, Tulsi and Parvati — the top bahu icons of Indian television — are busy shooting on the sets of KBC 2.  HitList brings you an exclusive encounter with Saakshi Tanwar as she plonks herself on the hot seat; this Diwali special will air October 30. 

Second time lucky

Although it's the "dweteeya" time for her, Saakshi is jittery. "It's so scary. It's like being on a cricket ground and facing googlies.

The whole ambience of Amitabhji's imposing presence, the red-light blinking on the camera and the prospect of  lakhs of our TV serial fans watching globally, is so unnerving, We are both expecting to get roasted on the hot seat. And I am already petrified. Even if we cross the Rs 6.4 lakh hurdle, I will feel like an Olympic champion."
 
I'll call dad

"With no time to brush up our general knowledge — only a shower of good luck can save us.  I wanted both my parents in the audience, boosting my morale, but they cannot make it. I didn't coax them because Thursday is Karva Chauth, and I wanted  them to be together.  During the game show, the moment I get the phone-a-friend option, I will speak to my dad in Alwar (Rajasthan) because he is well versed in current affairs. Even he is keen on speaking to Amitji.

Parents can't make it

When my mother watched the Preity Zinta-Saif Ali episode on KBC 2,  she'd predicted that I would be called for one of the special episodes. And it happened!  I wanted at least one of my parents to be on the show as my companion; but my father met with an accident recently, and avoids exerting his legs, and my mother, who went through a cardiac surgical procedure, has also been advised to refrain from hectic traveling.

Mommy's joy and pride

The biggest delight for Tanwar is that her mother will watch her laadli beti on KBC, in a glamorous appearance. "Ever since my character Parvati was widowed on Kahaani Ghar Ghar Kii, my mother was advised not to watch the episodes, as it makes her hyper.

But she could not resist and has been watching me religiously. When she sees me once again in my glamorous look, in a specially designed ravishing red sari, she is bound to be elated," says the doting daughter

Now, Achint in Corporate league
   By: Vickey Lalwani
   October 19, 2005

Achint Kaur
Madhur Bhandarkar's Corporate has a new addition — actress Achint Kaur (Pallavi of Kahaani Ghar Ghar Kii and Durga of Piya Ka Ghar) signed on the dotted line, yesterday.

Talking to hitList, Bhandarkar revealed, "Achint wanted to work with me even before Page 3 released.

After Page 3, I kept her in mind. I think she has loads of style. Her dialogue delivery and expressions are in sync; she looks the character I want in Corporate — a royal housewife. I am sure I have made the right decision," the director said.

Achint will play Rajat Kapoor's wife and Kay Kay Menon's sister; Kapoor plays a wealthy businessman. When contacted, Achint confirmed the news. "It's not a very big role; it can be termed as a cameo, but it's substantial."

What about TV?

"As far as TV is concerned, I have completed shooting for Piya Ka Ghar (Zee). Balaji Telefilms called me back for a few episodes of Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi (Star Plus) because my husband in the serial, Aditya Gujral, was killed. But I am now concentrating only on Kahaani," added the actress.

Corporate, to be produced by Percept Picture Company, stars Bipasha Basu, Kay Kay Menon, Rajat Kapoor, Samir Dattani, Harsh Chhaya and Payal Rohatgi.

Rupali refuses to be hospitalised
   By: Tushar Joshi
   October 13, 2005

Rupali Ganguly
Television's favourite chatterbox — Rupali Ganguly (Monisha of Sarabhai v/s Sarabhai and Gayatri in Kahaani Ghar Ghar Kii) has been keeping a low profile.

The actress was recently diagnosed with severe stress and a viral infection. In fact, her condition was so bad, that doctors at Lilavati Hospital advised her to get admitted, as her illness could prove fatal. But the chirpy actress refused, and continued shooting for her shows.
 
Fear factor

"I was told by the doctors that I needed to be under observation, and they asked me to get admitted. But there was no one who could be with me in hospital, and I am scared of staying in a room alone. I didn't want to be in that situation."

Fattening fast

The actress had to take injections on the sets, during her shoot for Sarabhai v/s Sarabhai. "I am on the way of recovery now and in much better shape than before. I even kept a fast for the nine nights of Navratri, which I am breaking today." Was it a strict fast? "No, I would die if I didn't eat. Roshesh (Rajesh Kumar) and I kept eating sabudana preparations, and ended up hogging twice the amount of food we normally do."
 
Sarabhai family

At the moment, Rupali is hardly seen in Kahaani Ghar Ghar Kii, making Sarabhai her only prime show. "I love Sarabhai — it's more fun and less work for me. We are like a family and miss each other like mad when there is no shoot."

But why isn't the actress taking on new shows? Says Rupali, "I am not being offered work I really want to do. I have never got myself involved in something I dislike. I would want to be totally convinced about it to take it on."

Why Shweta turned down Kkavyanjal
   By: Vickey Lalwani
   September 24, 2005

Shweta Kawaatra
Who says Ekta Kapoor holds grudges forever? Here is one more example to prove that the so-called hard taskmaster is professional, and casts actors purely on merit and not on her past experiences with them.

Kapoor wanted Shweta Kawaatra (Pallavi of Kahaani Ghar Ghar Kii) to play Pammi (now played by Nandini Singh, aka Kesar of Kesar) in her dearest product till date, Kkavyanjali.

She had no reservation in casting Kawaatra, who had walked out of Kahaani, saying she was stagnating and felt uncomfortable when a youngster (Krishna, played by Sachin Sharma) addressed her as mom in the show.

Says Shweta, "I was offered the role. But I was not going to be in town when they wanted my track to begin. So I told them I couldn't do it." Who called her? Kapoor herself? "A couple of people called," she says, diplomatically.

"I really can't say whether I liked the role or not. Of course, I heard it out, but only briefly; I didn't get too much into it so as to really like or dislike it. I was out of town for a month and they wanted to shoot before my return date." Nandini entered Kkavyanjali in mid-July.

"After that Balaji again called to ask if I could do the lawyer's role in Kkavyanjali, but I couldn't do even that.

That time, I had already zeroed in for Sanjay Wadhwa's Rang. Plus I had CID — Special Bureau. I couldn't put my hand in three dailies." The lawyer's role is now being played by Rupali Ganguly (Dr Simran of Sanjeevani).

Kapoor was unavailable for comment. Said her lieutenant, Nivedita Basu, "Yes, we wanted Kawaatra to get into Pammi's skin. But she said she would be out of India, at her sister's place in London.

We even asked Sweta Keswani to do that role. She didn't do it either, saying that firstly she didn't want to do a negative portrayal, and secondly, she was taking a break from television. I don't think we offered the lawyer's role to Kawaatra, though."

Kahaani's Gaurav takes centre stage
   By: Chaitanya Padukone
   September 22, 2005

Gautam Chaturvedi with Sakshi Tanwar
A double delight awaits Gautam Chaturvedi, who plays Gaurav bhaiyya in Kahaani Ghar Ghar Kii.

Gautam is set to become a father off-screen (for the second time), and, after lying low for dozens of episodes, has finally come out of Om Agarwal's shadow on the show with a prominent track.

Ironically, Om's real-life wife Rinku (she plays Chhaya) Karmarkar is using on-screen wife Shilpa (Jayaa Mathur) to create a rift between Gaurav and the widowed Parvati (Sakshi Tanwar).

Whether Gaurav will succumb to sibling Chhaya's pressure to oppose Parvati and snatch away the corporate clout she wields as MD of the family concern, remains to be seen.

Double-edged sword

Gautam is both delighted, yet wary, about his character development. He finally gets his share of limelight in the serial. "It's a dicey situation," he says. "I am excited to finally come centrestage and take charge of the business.

After having allowed Parvati to be at the helm of affairs, there is a domestic tug-of-war between us. My screen-sister Chhaya is unhappy with Parvati becoming MD at my instance, so she poisons my wife's mind and uses her to convince me it was a wrong decision," he adds.

"Parvati's character takes emotional, not rational decisions. Like when there was a critical meeting scheduled with the bank regarding credit limits, she prefers to go elsewhere to probe into a blast incident. Despite her priorities being off, Gaurav supports her because he holds her in high esteem," explains the actor.

Loyal trooper

Nearly a dozen TV actors, including Deepak Qazir (Babuji), Shweta Kawatra, Sachin Sharma and the latest, Manasi Varma (Monalika) have walked out of Kahaani as they were unhappy with the way their roles were shaping up What made Gautam stick around for five years, despite being overshadowed by Om's character?

"One of the reasons is my sentimental loyalty to the Balaji camp. Much before Ektaji started her fixation with K serials, I had acted in several Balaji shows like Mano Ya Na Mano, Ghar Ek Mandir and Itihaas. Secondly, I enjoyed being part of the Agarwal parivaar.

Recently, my track had its due prominence when I shifted my loyalty to Pallavi and took revenge when my newborn child was killed by the girl who secretly loved me.

Actress Jaya Mathur is the fourth to play my wife Shilpa — the other three, Neelam, Surbhi and Sucheta Trivedi, quit half-way through. I have patiently stuck on because Ekta is aware of my potential," says Gautam.

Marital bliss

Gautam (as Gaurav) has a major female fan following and gets all kinds of fan mail, asking about his marriage plans.

"It would be disheartening for them to know that I am happily married to Martha. We met while studying in Poddar College; while I drifted into acting, she was literally flying high as an air-hostess. We have a four-year old son Arjun, and my wife is expecting our second child in December.

Game, set, match!

Gautam is an avid tennis player. "Playing tennis is my passion and my dream is to play a doubles game with Sania Mirza as my partner on the courts," enthuses the actor, who originally wanted to be an army officer and had even cleared the entrance exam. "There was a twist in my career and I was hijacked into acting by destiny," he laughs.
