An Ansh of Kahiin To Hoga

An exclusive interview with the fresh face in the Ekta Parivaar - Ansh Batra, the spoilt-revengeful Karthik in television's hit soap, Kahiin To Hoga (KTH).



The simple boy from Punjab is creating waves on television with his grand entry into Ekta's Kahiin To Hoga(KTH), one of the most successful shows on television today. He talks with pride about his patience to have waited till he got the right break.

Catch Ansh Batra alias Anas Rashid in his first interview after he became an actor in Kahiin To Hoga and Kya Hoga Nimmo Ka (starts 20 March at 10 PM on STAR One).

In this exclusive interview to indya.com, Ansh talks about his role in KTH, the most beautiful woman in the world and his first scene with Kashish!

Your first project...
It has to be KTH! I have also signed in for Kya Hoga Nimmo Ka, we will start shooting for it shortly.

How did you land in Karthik's role, in KTH?
I will need to share this with you. My mom and my sister are ardent fans of Ekta Kapoor shows… They never miss a single episode. They suggested me to go ahead and try my luck. I came to Mumbai six months ago and I was really keen on being part of Balaji Telefilms. Infact, I had asked many people ways to approach the Balaji Telefilms.

Finally, I got through and here I am after a friend gave me the address, one day and I went for an audition for Kya Hoga Nimmo Ka. Few days later, I got a call from the Creative Head saying I was selected and that I will need to sign on the dotted line. That day was the most happiest day in my life. Then came Karthik's role in KTH.

How close to the character Karthik, is Ansh Batra?
Very close… I do behave like Karthik a few times, though I am not materialistic in real life!

Tell us about the cast of KTH.
The cast of KTH is very supportive. It is like a big family and everyone, including the cast and crew were helpful and made me feel very comfortable.

Tell us about your experience acting with the 'Kashish' or Amna Sheriff.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank Amna Sheriff for being supportive from the very first scene we did together.

The first time I faced the camera, the shot included her and I was frank enough to tell her that she will need to guide me. She taught me a lot of things. Amna is a great human being.

Favourite past time
I have no time to pass at all! (laughs) I spend my very little free time to stay back at home by myself and to read a few books.

Any other project you are part of…
Right now, it only has to be Kya Hoga Nimmo Ka.

If not an actor, what profession would you be in?
I would have been a singer! I have a good voice, can I sing? (laughs)

An actor you envy in KTH?
No one, I wish to make my mark for myself... What matters to me and what I am focusing on now is, the people's verdict. My performance is my only goal.

Your Dream role…
Shah Rukh's role in Darr is fantastic and I wish to play a similar role one day. My role in KTH too has shades of it.

Your favourite movie…
My all time favourite is Mere Mehboob starring Rajendra Kumar. I love watching it over and over again!

Who is your favourite actor in Bollywood?
I like Big B and Amir Khan. I appreciate Aamir Khan for his immense patience and sincerity, which I feel new comers like me must learn.

Your First shot…
I was very confused. I can't say I was nervous, as this is what I always wanted to do and I love my job.

Any plans of being part of movies…
I would like to concentrate on my shows, right now. And I have not thought about movies as yet.

According to you, the most beautiful woman on earth…
It has to be my mother. She is the epitome of love and comes first in my life!

Which is your favourite holiday destination?
I would not say Switzerland or Mauritius as I have never been there. I like Goa and I had also been to Bangalore once, and I like the place!

Your first crush…
Not yet! It could happen any moment!

How is it to be a star, part of KTH...
It is a wonderful experience and I thank God for giving me such a break. I feel satisfied because in just ten days, people have started recognising me in public. Infact, people in my gym come up to me and appreciate my performance. It just feels great!

Message to your fans
This is all new to me… I love my fans as I need all their love to prove myself in the industry. I thank them for supporting me and liking me in my very first role...

Balaji's new Nimmo

Balaji's very first venture into Star One with Kya hoga Nimmo ka has all the ingredients of a popular show, including a theme that is different from the saas bahu kitsch, says Deebashree Mohanty

After kammo, there is nimmo. True it took a long while for our Balaji serial makers to have found their new muse, different from all others. But let's wait and watch if this happy-go-lucky and spunky actress can do to Star One what Smriti Iraani has done to Star Plus.

Under the same banner, Sanjeeda, protagonist of the new serial, aptly called Nimmo has a lot of dreams. "I love Ekta's shows. It has been my everlasting dream to work under the Balaji banner. It is a great feeling and I am going to make the most of this opportunity," says Sanjeeda only a wee bit less excited as Navjot Singh Sidhu is on TV.

The reason for Sidhu's excitement? Well, the man gets to play what no one has ever played before - God. "It is a very difficult part to essay, but I am sure I will live up to the challenge. I am told I was the first choice for the role, the producer better have that much faith in me then," says Sidhu.

As for the script, "its different" he says. Kya Hoga Nimmo Ka, KHNK in the Ekta Kapoor ishtyle, is a Cinderella story of a middle class girl, Nimmo Mathuria... who is confident, bubbly and full of life! She is quite satisfied with her life. But she is a very clumsy person who often trips, breaks glasses and generally gets into trouble.

The people behind the concept of Nimmo are confident this will be the biggest launch of the year. Says Senior Creative Director, Star India Shailja Kejriwal: "Kya Hoga Nimmo Ka will by far be one of our biggest launches this summer and I am sure it will be liked by one and all."

Navneet Nishan, who is making a comeback after a while through this show, said she was lucky to be given an oppurtunity by Balaji. "Nimmo rocks and so will we," she says.

Now an Ektaa-inspired soap!
Nuzhat Aziz
Tuesday, February 21, 2006 18:50 IST


Actor Sanjeeda A R is slated to play the protagonist Nimmo in Balaji's new soap 'Kya Hoga Nimmo Ka' on Star One. The show is supposed to be the biggest Balaji show this year. Interestingly, sources close to the channel reveal that the chronicle has been inspired by prime time girl Ektaa Kapoor's life. It is also said to be a take-off on Cinderalla and her two older sisters.

Earlier called 'Kannu Ki Kismat Mein Kya Hai', the title was later changed to the current one. The soap revolves around Nimmo, a clumsy girl who is very close to her father. He is anxious about what his daughter's directionless life. Later Nimmo transforms into an ambitious girl who grows into a television tycoon (very akin to Ektaa's ascent).

Sanjeeda says, "I met Ektaa at a common friend's party and she offered me the role. I was excited. A week later I was called for audition and bagged the role." Sanjeeda has been acting in South Indian films for a year and a half. She adds ecstatically, "I was impressed with Ektaa because she took pains to sit with me and explain the character."

When quizzed whether Nimmo's character was inspired by Ektaa, Sanjeeda is tight-lipped. "Well, I am not revealing anything now. You have to watch the show to judge that for yourself," she says. The show also has actors Sanjit Bedi and Hiten Tejwani. It will go on air in March.

Screen On & Off
Fresh face: Sanjeeda

She was at the right place at the right time and before she knew, she was invited to be the next big thing on Indian television. Sanjeeda, a little known actress on the south Indian big screen, is set to play the role of Nimmo in the new Ektaa Kapoor serial on STAR One, Kya Hoga Nimmo Ka. It was at a common friend's party where the two ladies bumped into each other and the rest, as they say, is history.

"Ektaa spotted me at the party and wanted me to be her new face," Sanjeeda tells Metro. "The next day I screen-tested for the role of Nimmo and within a week they called back to confirm the offer."

In the new serial, to start in March, Nimmo is a simple and youthful girl who is clumsy enough to trip often and break glasses every now and then. She is part of a close-knit family comprising her mother, father and two sisters. "Nimmo is a very ordinary middle class girl and she is happy being that way. In fact, she inspires others to be content with their lives," feels Sanjeeda.

But doesn't that sound like Jassi? "I think the similarity between the two is only in the titles," Sanjeeda asserts. "Other than that, the two are completely different.

First Look: Ekta Kapoor's new soap


For a change, Ekta Kapoor's new soap is not a saas-bahu drama. Kya Hoga Nimmo Ka has a more 'Jassi' feel to it. The central character -- played by newcomer Sanjeeda -- is a clumsy girl who is almost never favoured by Lady Luck and gets into trouble all the time.

A dance instructor, Sanjeeda hails from Ahmedabad. Describing her role, she says, "It is a Cinderella-like story about a middle-class girl called Nimmo Mathuria. She is satisfied with her life, has no high profile dreams and accepts life as it is. So, will her destiny change?"

Nimmo's mother Kantaben wants to be a Page 3 regular. Her sister Naina wants to be Miss India and marry a rich guy. Her other sister Swati is very practical and wants to marry someone who has his own news channel or enough money to open one. But Nimmo is closest to her father, Anand, a very humble man.

The rest of the cast includes Dara Singh, Dolly Thakore (who makes her TV debut), Bharati Achrekar, Navneet Nishan, Rakhi Tandon and Eijaz Khan. And yes, Navjot Singh Sidhu plays God in the serial!

Watch out for Kya Hoga Nimmo Ka on Star One between Monday and Thursday at 10.00 pm, starting March 20.

"I gave a month's notice to Ekta, but she was still upset!"
 

Coming from an army background, Barkha Bisht had a tough time convincing her family that she would make a success out of a career in acting.

MTV's Kitni Mast Hai Zindagi was one of the four shows she's been seen in, but she's hit the jackpot with the new Rajshri show on Star Plus, Pyaar Ke Do Naam Ek Radha Ek Shyam, where she gets to portray a double role as the lead.
Kavita Shyam spoke to the confident young actor.

What's your role like in Pyaar Ke...?
I play two characters in the show Pyaar Ke... which is about reincarnation. In the present birth, I play Radha, a middle class, family oriented girl. She is a medical student and has high values in life. She is wary of the guys around her who try to flirt with her in college. On the other hand, Shyama from her previous birth is a simple village girl. She is full of life, but an introvert who cannot confront the guy she loves. Kishan (played by Indraneil Sengupta) comes back to the village after completing his studies. Radha has a churidar-kurta look while Shyama has ghagra choli look in the show.

Ekta Kappor sent you a legal notice because you walked out of Kya Hoga Nimmo Ka?
Yes, Ekta did send me a legal notice and there's a court case pending. The Rajshris' legal department are looking into the case. I think Ekta is too busy to talk to actors like me, who aren't big, but I guess she wanted to go the legal way.

But why did you walk out of the Balaji show?
I opted out of Nimmo….because I am getting to play the main lead in Pyaar….. Though I did give them a month's notice, I guess Ekta was very upset.

How was it to work with Balaji Telefilms?
Working with Balaji was a learning experience, they gave me a lot of exposure. I am grateful to Ekta who liked me in my auditions and gave me a break in her show. My first break on TV was through her Kitni Mast Hai Zindagi and I have had no acting background. After all, Balaji is the number one production house in the country!

Are you still identified as Kitni Mast Hai Zindagi's Udita?
I am identified as the sweet and dumb Udita from Kitni Mast... But I am miles away and different from the character I played, which is extremely close to my heart - it gave me a lot of recognition! But in real life, I am a level headed person and am reserved, however I am extremely friendly too. I am serious about my work and life.

Did you begin your career with modeling?
I am originally from Dehradun but I completed my education from Pune. I worked in a call centre (GE Capital,Gurgaon) for three and a half years as a voice and accent trainer. My dad was against me getting into this field, but the MTV audition happened quite by chance. Once I made it to the auditions and got selected, I managed to convince my parents to let me go! Now they are happy for me.

If I hadn't got any more offers after Kitni…I would have gone back to my earlier job, but thankfully I got to play character roles in Kkavyanjali, Kasautii Zindagi Kay, and now the Rajshris project. I have not been inclined towards films but have grown up watching television and I am influenced by Prerna of Kasautii…

Did you have to do any homework for Pyaar Ke…?
My character Shyama needed different body language. She's a village girl and her pronunciations are different too. I watched Lagaan a couple of times as my character is similar to Gracy Singh's in Lagaan. Besides Rajshris gave me a good brief about the character and that helped a great deal.

What are you future plans?
For now, I want to put in all my energy into the show. I shoot 25 days in a month in Wai (interior Maharashtra). I am happy doing television and am passionate about acting, so films may happen only if I get an unusual role. Today, television actors are more famous than film stars. I am open to the idea of doing ad films along with the show though!
