All in all, these moments come together to comprise one more year of our lives. Rati and Arjun share trier special, lovely moments with us, but mind you only the happy and positive ones. We dont want to start the New Year by remembering things that make us sad but reliving the beautiful moments and welcoming the New Year with a smile. GR8! Gives you a deep insight on how Rati and Arjun will be celebrating their New Year resolutions, but most importantly their views on the Date Rape Scare on New Years Eve. Read On......
Where do you plan to celebrate your New Year?
Arjun : I am planning to either go to Bangkok or Goa. Both the places are my favorite and I am just waiting to fly off there for 31st and to celebrate New Year.
Rati : I really haven't planned where will I be celebrating my new year. I have been travelling a lot these days and I am thoroughly enjoying myself(Smiles). Well, I guess for New Year I would be coming to Mumbai but again you never know the plan might just change on the last moment(Winks)
Any New Year Resolution?
Arjun : I generally don't pledge any New Year resolutions but I always say one thing to myself that I will certainly work harder and better in the New Year.
Rati : I never make any New Rear resolutions as I don't believe in them. I just decide to further curb down my temper in New Year. That's all i keep in mind but never make it a resolution.
Best New Year you celebrated and would always cherish?
Arjun : Well there are many such memories that I cherish and I will cherish. There have been many such 31st even and New Year mornings that are very Special and dear to me and Thus I just don't want to select one.
Rati : Hmmm... Last year I had gone to Panchgani for 31st and it was just amazing, the chilly weather, cup of Coffees and it is my recent best. People go to lound and happening places but trust me Panchgani was like heaven-peaceful, beautiful and serene. Ohhh! Talking about it has actually made me relive those moments.
One thing you really want to change in yourself in 2011?
Arjun : Hmmm... One thing that I would want to change in myself is that I need to be more patient.
Rati : The one thing that I would want to change in myself in 2011 would again be my temper as I am short tempered. I hope to calm down a bit more and become quiet. But practically I dont want to become absolutely quiet as i am a honest, open and straight-forward person. So cant change this side of mine though will control my temper & I think to a large means already been successful to curb it down. I will b myself the same genuine, outspoken and frank Rati who will call a spade a spade. And ya, one more change that I want to bring in is that I should become a little diplomatic because i tell ppl frankly what i feel and sometimes it works against me so I need to learn the tactic of diplomacy(Smiles).
One thing you wish really happens in 2011?
Arjun : (Smiles) One thing I wish really happens in 2011, is that I should sign a film.
Rati : If work is concerned then I would really hope that not TV serial but anchor based shows come my way. I cant do the typical role of a bahu; the serial and the character have to be different. Also I would want to do reality shows and of course movies.
Your Ideal way of celebrating 31st?
Arjun : The ideal way to celebrate not only 31st but any other occasion is with close friends and family.
Rati : Its simple you can be yourself and enjoy the most with your family and friends so of course the ideal way to celebrate 31st and welcome the new year is with people who are really close to you(Smiles), Hmmm... If seen from the angle of adventure then Para-gliding and bungee-jumping is a cool idea and as also I have a height phobia, I would be really glad to overcome it and enter the New year fearlessly(Laughs).
One thing you will remember 2010 for?
Arjun : I will of course, undoubtedly remember 2010 for Miley Jab Hum Tum.
Rati : I will definitely remember 2010 for Miley Jab Hum Tum as I had a whole new but amazing experiance while doing it. I was shocked to know about my death but I took it sportingly and the due to the requests from fans and to bring back the same charisma of the show; I re-entered the show. And now finally it ended one a very positive and a happy note. I was overwhelmed to see the love and support of my fans; I had not expected this and was really happy that all of them wanted me back in the show. Its very rare that you get such loyal fans and all they wanted is that you should be back in the show. I feel I am really fortunate and I will always remember this year, 2010 as it has given me a lot.
One thing you want more of in 2011?
Arjun : One thing I would want more of in 2011 is just good health for family and friends.
Rati : One thing I would want more of in 2011 is lesser working hours, working days, telecast days and everything else related to it should be less or course except money(Laughs)
What is that one thing that you would want to change on television in 2011?
Arjun : The one thing that I really want to change on television in 2011 is the Fake Drama.
Rati : There isn't one thing but two things that I really want to change on television. First is the long working hours and next is the typical role of bahu.
In todays scenario the youngsters take the fact of celebrating the 31st and partying hard a bit too seriously. None the less many unfortunate incidents do happen that certainly are regretted later on but its not that easy to live behind these nightmares. The New Year celebrations turn out to be disastrous for many and the major reason being the alcohol resulting in incidents of date rapes.
Rati and Arjun absolutely agree to this fact.
If at all you get drunk, will you ever indulge in any physical intimacy with a girl or a guy(Given the fact that many people these days get physical with both the sexes)?
Gripped by sudden shock with such a question, both of them are silent and look blankly towards me. Rati quips, "No way, firstly I never drink so much simply because I feel alcohol is the biggest enemy of a person. Also one more important thing is that no matter how much ever a person drinks, he/she is conscious of what's happening and are totally in senses, especially girls. So, if anyone says that I was drunk and that's why I made a mistake; then its just crap, just an excuse to cover up your wrong act. I will not indulge in any physical act with any guy or a girl(as you have asked both). I am very much straight and a one-night stand or something like this just isn't for me."
Arjun instantly agrees with Rati, "I absolutely agree with her and let me put the fact straight that there is no way I will be physical with a guy. I am very much straight and no matter how much ever drunk, I will still be straight. Now, that doesn't mean that I drink so much, it was just a statement to clarify that I am not at all into guys(Smiles). And I think such incidents happen not only by mistake but also many a times youngsters are fooled, deceived and this results in date rapes. So, I think you should go out with your trusted friends if you really love partying. But why such a weird question for a magazine, I mean who asks such direct and bold questions."
(Well, the question is direct and bold(even I felt awkward asking) but as you'll are the idols of many youngsters, a negative response from you'll to such activities & a small message for them, will do good to all the youngsters out there!)
Your message to the youngsters?
Arjun : Please don't indulge in any such activity that is wrong and that you will regret later. Because it will just take one mistake to ruin your New Year, making it a nightmare for you. There is nothing wrong in partying until and unless you are conscious and are going with trusted friends.
Rati : Never make alcohol your best buddy; it spoils your system in every way-physically, emotionally, mentally. When you get drunk, you tend to become emotional and share your secrets and life even with the strangers. Its a very dangerous act and I would advice all the youngsters to keep away from alcohol.
"We wish all our fans and all the readers a very Happy and Prosperous New Year. You'll have loved and supported us in past and we hope that in future too you'll shower us with blessings and give the same love and support."
What can i say about these two amazing thinkers!
Excellent and honest answers by both of 'em. Rati actually did most of the talking this time, really happy to see an honest Rati.
She's one matured woman, but i really didn't know that she's short-tempered, and woah she needs to be more diplomatic..Aww Rati! She's so honest, seriously adore her honesty so much.
Arjun is a sweetheart, always kind and sweet in giving answers and of course intelligent and practical ones like always.
I LOVED their views on Date Rape issues, alcohol & physical intimacies. Simply superb opinions. Its actually really a disgrace to see youngsters indulging in physical activites and blaming alcohol for it. As Rati says, alcohol is your biggest enemy. Wow! my respect for ArTi has grown even more.
And moreover the cherry on the cake is that Arjun agrees with Rati. AWW my adorables!
thanks a ton Preeti...where are the HQ caps of the article pics?
