Gulaal is the defining point of my career: Manasi Parekh
STARONE.IN

Manasi Parekh is back to TV with the upcoming show Gulaal on STAR Plus in which she plays the title role. The show has been shot in the beautiful city of  Jaisalmer and Manasi is very excited about Gulaal. Read on to find out more about her character and the show.

STARONE.IN

You had been missing from the small screen for sometime so why did you choose Gulaal to make a comeback?
Every actress wants a role which becomes the defining point of her career and for me it's Gulaal. I did not do TV for 5-6 months because I was looking for something exciting, different and unique.

Can you tell us a little about your role?

Gulaal is full of contradictions. She is innocent but smart, intelligent but nave. She has mood swings but is normally loving and emotional. So in short the character has lots of shades.

What is the theme of the show? Does it aim to spread any social message?
Yes there is a theme and message but it's too early to reveal it. STAR Plus has been making interesting dramas with a social message and Gulaal is similar in that sense, but different from any other show on television.

How is the experience of working with co-stars Rahil Azam and Manoj Joshi?
Both of them are senior actors and very sweet and humble. It was a challenge working with them but I also got to learn and absorb a lot from my co-stars.

The show has been shot in shot in Jaisalmer, did you enjoy shooting there? What did you like most about the location?
It was challenging to shoot in Jaisalmer because of the weather conditions. At times it is extremely hot and extremely cold at other times. I had never been to a desert before this shoot and have to say that it is beautiful. We have even shot in 47 degree celsius heat on the first day and it was very tough. Otherwise Jaisalmer is a beautiful city, we shot in the white desert and Rann which are visually stunning.

Any memorable incidents while shooting or memorable scenes from the show?
Oh there are loads of memorable incidents. I had to ride a camel for one scene but it would just not move. Someone suggested that I should kick it and after that it started running. That was very scary, but now I have become a pro at riding a camel.

Gulaal is replacing the popular show Bidaai, do you think it will do as well as its predecessor?
I am hoping it does well and that it is liked by the audience. Bidaai is a very good show but even Gulaal is colorful, vibrant and dramatic.

Why according to you should the audience watch this show?
The main hero of Gulaal is the story. It has a great set of actors and cinematography and direction is also great. The plot is very catchy and every scene creates curiosity about what is going to happen next. The beautiful colors of Rann of Kutch are the icing on the cake.

What message would you like to give to all your fans?
I used to get a lot of fan mail about why I am missing from TV. I want to announce that I have now come back with a bang. It has been a challenge for me as I was the only girl on the sets riding camels in the desert. I love my new avatar, it's a platform to showcase my talent.

STAR Plus new show Gulaal revolves around a young bright girl, Gulaal who hails from Rashipur near the Rann of Kutch.

STARONE.IN

And to welcome the show to STAR parivaar there was a huge conference and after party for the show, where other actors from other shows on STAR Plus were present. The main attraction of the show was the first episode being screened on a gigantic screen that was enjoyed by all.

Krishna and Pratigya, who were present at the event, enjoyed the screening of Gulaal. " I enjoyed the entire setup. The star cast is perfect, right from the lead actress Manasi, as well as the supporting cast. The shooting has been excellent, with the makers and the channel doing a great job in making the show look real."

The Kashyap family from Sasural Genda Phool were also present at the showing. Ishaan and Suhana praised the show. "I'm very happy that Manasi is part of the STAR Parivar. I liked the show's concept and I am sure that Gulaal-Vasant will be a popular onscreen couple," said Jai Soni aka Ishaan.

The story of Gulaal comes from the parched village of Talsagra in Kutch and its arch rival Rashipur. Gulaal is a bright 24-year-old residing in Rashipur, with a special gift of sensing water beneath the sand in an arid desert. Unfazed by the protests from the people of Rashipur and leaving behind her family and friends, Gulaal sets out to help the residents of Talsagra find water. Over time, the story beautifully portrays her ability to take intelligent and well informed decisions for the benefit of her people, her quest to find water in draught affected Talsagra with Vasantji and their love story. The character of Gulaal will be played by Manasi Parekh marking her comeback to television while Rahil Azam of Hatim Tai fame will play Vasantji, her love interest in the show.

Don't forget to watch Gulaal-Zindagi Ka Har Rang every Monday to Friday at 9 p.m. only on STAR Plus.

Gulaal is a film on TV", says Vasant
STARONE.IN

Versatile actor Rahil Azam is back on TV as Vasant in the recently launched Gulaal on STAR Plus. We catch up with the actor and find out more about his role and the show.

STARONE.IN


You had been missing from the small screen for sometime, why did you choose to make your comeback as Vasant in Gulaal?

I was never intentionally away from TV. I work in a show only if the role compliments me and helps me grow as an actor. I usually have a gap of 3 months to a year before I accept a new role. My last role was in Mr. and Mrs. Mishra on Sahara one. I try to do just one project a year because the subjects I normally come across are the typical stuff. I want my character to be a class apart and am willing to wait for the right role. All my roles in the past have been challenging and mature and I have even played a woman in Babul Ka Aangan Chootey Na. I had never played a character like Vasant before and he is a contrast to all my previous roles. Gulaal is an amazing blend of a great setup, fantastic director and cast and brilliant cinematography.

How easy or difficult was it to slip into the character of Vasant?
Normally when the script is narrated to me, I start visualizing the character, but in this case I found it difficult to do so. Our director Siddharth Sengupta is brilliant. He supported me brilliantly and our wavelength matched perfectly. I admire the way he thinks and makes you come into his tangent. I would describe him as an intelligent and creative man. Under his directon when you watch yourself on screen you get mesmerized by your own performance. I have learnt so much from him.

How did you work towards perfecting the Kutch dialect for the show?
I did not really work on it much because we have tried not to go into it too deeply, keeping the audience all over India and also abroad in mind.

The introductory episode had a scene where you are sleeping in the desert. Did you face any difficulty shooting that scene?
We shot that much later, about a month after the shoot started. I wanted it to be shot earlier because it was my introductory scene and I wanted to get my first note right. When we finally shot it I did not face any difficulty, infact I enjoyed shooting it.

How was the experience of shooting in Rajasthan?
Rajasthan has lovely locations. People usually go to Goa for a romantic weekend but I would suggest they opt for the beautiful Jaisalmer.

How has the experience of working with co-stars Manasi Parekh and Manoj Joshi been?
I have worked with Manoj ji in the past, so our tuning is very good. I had heard about Manasi before Gulaal but never interacted with her. She is a director's actress, very spontaneous and natural. I feel astonished seeing her performance in the show.

Any memorable incident while shooting or memorable scene from the show?
There have been plenty of memorable incidents. In Jaisalmer we were shooting outdoors and every morning I used to find myself on top of a camel (laughs). Everyday is a new experience. Gulaal is shot on a huge canvas and has an original script.

Do you think Gulaal will match up to the popular show Bidaai which it has replaced?
I don't watch TV much but I have heard that Bidaai had done wonders. Everything actually depends on the audience and the two shows are totally different. The only common thing between Bidaai and Gulaal is the time slot and channel.

Why according to you is the most interesting part of the show?
Everything from the direction by Mr. Siddharth Sengupta to the acting to cinematography is interesting.

What can we expect to see in upcoming episodes?
There is loads that you can expect to see on the show. Gulaal is an ocean, it's more like a film on TV, not just a daily soap. It has a love story as well as war between villages. The show is not restricted to just one family or person. I have never seen anything like this on TV and thank Allah for making me a part of Gulaal. It is brilliantly written and the camera work will leave you awestruck.

You have earlier worked in a show like Hatim which was of the fantasy genre. Do you enjoy fantasy or realistic shows more?
Whatever I do whether it is anchoring, acting in a documentary or daily soap I enjoy everything. Whether it works or does not is not in my hand. My reward is when the audience accepts my work. Hatim was a landmark for me. It is probably the only show that has consecutive reruns since the past 5 years but I did not want to be typecast in the Hatim type image. I kept breaking the image that I had created in my previous show with every new show that I signed.I broke my Hatim image with Saarthi and broke that image with Yeh Meri Life Hai and so on. I dreamt of playing a cop and that wish was fulfilled with Mr and Mrs Mishra. Now I am Vasant of Gulaal who is madly in love with his village and can do anything for it.

Any message for your fans on Starplus.in?
Love your parents as they are the best gift that God has given. People are influenced by western culture a lot these days but please never forget your roots.

Keep watching Gulaal every Monday-Friday at 9pm on STAR Plus

Gulaal is a film on TV, Says Vasant.

Vasant reveals his true identity to Gulaal
STARONE.IN

The latest in Gulaal is that with Vasant's ( Rahil Azam) help Gulaal (Manasi Parekh) has discovered that she has the special gift of sensing water beneath the sand of the desert.

STARONE.IN


In tonight's episode, the show promises some major drama as Vasant will reveal to Gulaal that he belongs to the rival village Talsagra and that he needs her to save his village that is facing a dreadful draught. Fans of the show can expect to witness a major fight between Vasant and Gulaal who is shocked to learn that Vasant had earlier lied to her about his identity and intentions.

We spoke to Gulaal aka Manasi Parekh who reveals "Yes there is going to be a big fight between Gulaal and Vasant aka Lakha after his confession that he belongs to the rival village Talsagra. Gulaal is furious and asks him to leave. He tries his best to convince her to come and save his village that need is in desperate need of water". "In the previous episode Gulaal was shocked to discover about her special ability of sensing water after the payal that Vasant had given her starts ringing. She throws the payal at him and runs away. This is how Vasant realises that I am the Neerja he is looking for", she adds.

Vasant aka Rahil Azam says " Tonight you will see the turning point of the show. Finding Neerja is a dream come true for Vasant. She was the girl who used to appear in Ram Jadiya's dreams. Ram Jadiya had told him about the girl who places feet on the ground and water comes out but he did not believe it at that time. However Vasant takes a big risk and goes against his village and even his father whom he respects a lot. It is because of his belief in Ram Jadiya's words that he goes to Rashipur that belongs to enemy. He knows there is a girl Neerja but faces a lot of difficulty in finding her. When Vasant realizes that Gulaal's real name is Neerja he is angry because she lied to him. Now that Vasant has found Neerja he feels like he has conquered the world because only she can save his village. He knows that he needs her and that is the reason he confesses about his real identity. You will have to watch tonight's episode to find out what happens next".

Do not miss Vasant's confession tonight in Gulaal every Monday-Friday at 9pm on STAR Plus.

Gulaal's power to detect water fake?Gulaal's power to detect water fake?

Star Plus and Sphere Origins' Gulaal to see an unexpected twist in the ...


Star Plus and Sphere Origins' Gulaal in its latest episode saw the unfortunate fall of Gulaal's father post the revelation of the identity of Lakha who is Vasant (Rahil Azam) in real.

Adding further on the track our source says "The last episode showed the ill-fated incident where Gulaal's (Mansi Parekh) father meets with an accident. Tonight's episode will see Lakha saving him  by donating blood. After this development, he asks Gulaal (Mansi Parekh) to save his village from drought as a return help, which she agrees to do."

We hear that there is a twist coming for the audience!!

Our source says "When she reaches the village the power of Gulaal, that is her capability to detect water underground with her payal on proves fake. When she goes to Rasipur to help the village get out of the drought, it is seen that Gulaal aka Neerja is unable to detect water, i.e. the magical movement of the anklets by its own turns out to be a bogus."

What's the twist behind this? What happens in the village that proves the sixth sense of Gulaal to be fake?  

That is something the viewers have to watch to be revealed.
