Hey guys ..
Like I had mentioned in the AbHer/YaRav thread about one of GK's OLD interviews .. here it is. This interview is taken by his fans (me included!) for his fans! Its from his Kumkum days .. and one of GK's best interviews (acc. to me) simply coz he was himself .. no pretence .. no starry attitude! Its the simple, humble & down to earth GK Embarrassed  3 years later .. today when I read his Showtime interview .. I realise some things haven't changed .. he still is the same guy. That makes me really happy Big smile 
This interview has pretty much everything fans always want to know about their fav. star .. likes/dislikes .. life before stardom .. everything. Hope you guys enjoy reading it. Its a long one .. so hope you have the patience to read it Embarrassed

Hi Eks,
Many many thanks... yup... looks like the man hasn't changed! Which is great... must be hard to retain a sense of self in this industry!

Online wife? Didn't understand that bit. Enlighten when you have timeBig smile

I find only one thing unbelievable- GK dated a girl in class 3 or 4? Shocked Gosh... isn't that a bit too young to take a girl out, even for samosa?

And then, after that, he has not dated anyone? Wow... it must be hard to please himLOL He should play the role of Darcy sometime... GK sounds so much like DarcyBig smile Has he read P & P?

I hope sometime later, when YPNHK celebrates 100 or 200 episodes, you can do another interview with him.

Thanks again...

Glad you guys enjoyed reading the interview Big smile 
@ Hina - Yup .. true. Reading this interview does make you feel closer to him .. like we know him better. Thats why I love this interview .. It has that warmth Embarrassed 
@ Gayu - About the "online wife" thing .. lol .. we had Rachu in the Kumkum section who was/is GK's biggest fan. All in fun .. we got her married to GK in the Kumkum section LOL and GK even knew about it. Thats why he is so comfortable talking about it! LOL LOL 
Hahaha .. him dating in class 3 or 4 LOL Imagine a young 7-8 year old boy going to the canteen with a girl to eat samosa! How cute is that!! LOL LOL And yup .. he should play a Darcy-like character soon! Would suit him to the hilt! Big smile

Me too... much older... never mind... can still appreciate his looks and talent. Koi manaayi tho nahin hai na (Abeer style)! LOL

I have a question regarding GK's character Sharman in Kumkum. Who did he marry? There are some scenes with some woman on youtube but I could find no scenes of marriage or anything.

Samira, you are right. GK is better-looking now than before....Embarrassed

Aww my dear Eks Hug Thanks honey for the post! It's great to read this!
Absolutly loved reading about Gaurav.Embarrassed Gosh yeah this guy hasn't changed a bit! When he talked about what his girlfriend should be like, he just said exactly the same things to what he said in the very recent interview. Embarrassed And the fav colour changes with time and mood, in holi epi he said ''fav colour is RED because it's the colour of love'', looks like someone is in love!Wink
Oh I remember him during Kumkum days. He played his character so beautifuly, I missed him a looooot after he left. Actually I stopped watching for a while. Those days he was the one who brought brightness to the show. I still watch those funny scenes. LOL ROFL 
Talking about those fab Sharman ka scenes... I love this scene.....ROFLROFLROFL

But I wasn't a member of IF then! So I have one question, how did you get a chance to chat with him? It's must have been awsome to actualy chat with our own GK.
Gaurav is very close to Hussain and Tina and am so happy that he is! You know Hussain and Tina are my fav real life coupleSmile. Gosh I haven't seen anyone so sweet and perfect like them two! I always think a if couple is perfect they should be like Hussain and Tina. I love Tina, she is such a sweetheart. I think Gaurav should find someone just like Tina, beacuse he deserves someone who is very understanding and who loves him lot. Embarrassed
Please Eks share some more interviews or chat if u have! Love reading about him.Embarrassed
