|Aditi Set To Replace Parul In 'Yeh Pyar Na Hoga Kam'|
|Tuesday, 20 July 2010 15:03|
"Yes, I have been offered to play one of the pivotal characters in the show. However, I haven't signed it yet. You'll get the exact picture in a day or two," said Sajwan.
Talking about the reason to drop Parul, a reliable source says, "There is no issue with the girl, and she too has taken this decision sportingly. It's just that the show will see a major twist in Bittan's character which requires a powerful performance. The production felt that Parul won't be able to carry it through and they felt the need to replace her with Aditi Sajwan."
Elaborating on the major twist, the source adds, "Bittan will be making a sacrifice by marrying a villainous character, who then provides her with the necessary money for her father's operation. From here on, Bittan is going to emerge as a very strong character."

There was a strong buzz that Parul Gulati (Bittan of Yeh Pyaar Na Hoga Kam) may get replaced in the show because as per the track the production house wanted to cast a more mature face. Aditi Sajwan of Meera fame was supposed to replace her but now Parul has decided to continue with the show for the time being.
Our source says, "At this moment things have been sorted out between Parul and the production house. She will continue to be part of our show. Currently we are more concerned about the falling numbers of our show and planning to bring few twists in the tale."
Parul who debuted with this show on television says, "It was a rumour. I do not have any issues with the production house or with my character. I am going to continue this show."
Aditi says, "I was approached for the part and I did meet them but I didn't like the offer."
It is also said that the channel is not happy with the current ratings (1.9) of the show and is thinking to pull it off, but things are yet at a premature stage.

TellyChakkar spoke to the handsome hunk about all that you ever wanted to know about him.
Is Gaurav anywhere like Abeer?
Abeer is like any other guy born in North India. If I had to be in the North I would have been a lot like Abeer. For now, I can say I am 55 to 60 per cent like him.
You are one of the hottest hunks in the television industry… aren't you dating?
No. I am not dating anyone as there is hardly any time when I am free. I do not have a social life as I am shooting 28 days a month. I have turned a workaholic in the past four to five years and I do not know what to do when I am not working. So, usually I keep doing something or the other.
Since I am so busy I don't think it would be fair to be in a relationship if I do not have enough time for my partner. But for now work comes first though I am not consciously trying to not fall in love. It hasn't just happened as yet.
Didn't you have a girlfriend in school or college?
No. I never had one as I was all the time busy even then. In school I was busy participating in sports, elocution, debates and while I was in college I was also helping dad in his business. After work I would go to the gym.
Do you even now keep yourself busy?
Yes. I usually try and learn new things in my free time. But, earlier as I was doing two shows on TV I was all the time occupied. But now though I just do one show it keeps me busy. Whenever I have little time I sit and design my house. I have designed my house completely and there is still a lot that I want to do so I keep working on it. I have always been a creative person.
We have heard you also paint in your free time…
Yes, I paint beautiful women all the time and that is an irony of my life! But, I like painting beautiful Rajasthani women with beautiful backdrops in their colourful attire.
Tell us something about your journey in the glamour industry?
I had completed my MBA and just landed in Mumbai as a marketing manager in an IT firm. I used to go to this gym and I met someone who helped me do an ad there and I did it for pocket money. Later I got Siddhant for which I had to shoot for 8-9 days. I did it but this was the beginning of my 24 hour working schedule as I had not given up on my IT job.
I used to work in the office during the day and shoot at night. But, even before I did this serial I had done an eight second role in a teleseries, One Night Stand. I waited to shoot for that role from 2 in the noon till 2.30 in the morning and the shot got over in just 10 seconds. But, I was pretty thrilled with the entire on-screen experience so I did not mind waiting that long.
Later I got an offer from Bhabhi and they told me that I would have to sign a contract as I had a big role in it. So, I had to give up my job. At that point of time I went through severe mental strain as I had not even informed anyone back home that I was giving up on such a good job. But, to my horror my role in it came to an end in just six days as it was a cameo and I wasn't even informed.
For three days I was at home sitting idle but then I got call from the same producers as they wanted me to act in Kumkum.
Do you still feel you could have done better as a Marketing Manager?
If I had to still be there I would have been a mid level corporate person traveling somewhere. I do think about it at times and then I do ads for the same company and I feel I am in front of the camera if not behind it so it feels good.
Have you made any friends in the industry?
I have made a very few friends but close ones. I do not socialize much. The only place I like coming to after my shoots is my home. The best part is I never get bored of myself so I do not feel the need to have friends around me all the time.
Name three things that you like doing the most?
Sleep, eat and workout. I have been doing this since the very beginning and I still love doing it.
Has anyone ever played a prank on you?
Yes, initially when I was new on the sets of Kumkum. Hussain (Kuwajerwala), his wife Tina and Vivan (Bhatena) had played this prank on me. I use to get a call from a stalker who belonged to the place I come from and she knew everything about me and this led to a situation that one day I went to meet her. It was only then I realized it was a prank played by these guys.
I used to tell Hussain about everything and he would go back home and tell Tina who would then call me up. And, I never knew it was them and the worst part was I would go to their place and tell them everything about this stalker! This went on for one and a half years.
Have you played pranks on others?
I think you should ask my co-stars about it they will tell you better stories!
How important are awards for you?
Frankly speaking I do not see any strength on Indian television with no offence to the actors who have received the awards. They received it because they deserved it. I too was nominated for Kumkum but these awards are on the basis of the TRPs of a show. So if a show is doing well and its TRPs are high the actors on that show are nominated for awards. I prefer the Bollywood awards more because actors are awarded for their performance and not for the film. Hence, I usually do not go to the award functions unless I am hosting or performing.
Are you looking forward to act in Bollywood?
I was never a trained actor nor did I plan to be here but it is destiny I am here. I haven't met a director or a producer till date for a role in a film. But if I am offered something I will do it. But I believe it is better to be a bigger fish in a smaller pond than being a smaller fish in an ocean. It's not that television is not doing well you see Bollywood stars coming on TV. It is growing every day.
What kind of a girl do you want in your life?
I would like someone like Scarlet Johansson, Salma Hayek and Penelope Cruz, Madhuri Dixit and Katrina Kaif. I think like any other normal guy. I want someone who understands me and my humour, good looking and a good cook as I love eating. But this does not mean she will be in the kitchen all the time. Education is a must as it changes your outlook towards the way you look at things and situations.

Bloopers always leave you red-faced. You are embarassed for a few days that follow the incident but it becomes a joke that breaks you into fits of laughter for years that follow. Actors too aren't immune to these bloopers and they keep goofing-up on and off-screen. Read on to know where some of the finest actors erred and are laughing till date.

This was during a scene in Yeh Pyaar Na Hoga Kam, where I had to go to Abir's granny and tell her how I insulted Parul and her family. So I had a long manuscript with a page-long dialogue. But when the director called action, I could just remember one line – "Mata ji aaj kya batau kya hua" and I forgot my lines and in the same tone I said aagey ki lines bhool gayi main (I have forgotten my lines). And the entire crew thought that it was a part of my script and kept rolling the camera. I looked at my director to tell him again that I have forgotten my lines and need a cue. The cast and crew couldn't stop laughing at it.

|Stars on their favourite on-screen couple|
Some of the on-screen couples share such great chemistry that the viewers fall in love with their characters and wish that their prospective brides and grooms be like them. Actors speak on their favourite on-screen couples who spell magic, compatibility, respect and unbound love.

My favourite on-screen couple is Supriya and Sachin Pilgaonkar. They were adorable on Nach Baliye and in all their movies. Everytime they come on-screen together, you can't help but admire them. They look so compatible.
