"I am no saint; I have been corrupt
too," Rajeev Khandelwal said candidly when confronted with his own
'Sach' regarding corruption in any form. "I am a human being, after
all," he said in his defence.
And yes, it was mostly those who hadn't had the chance to make money who talked about corruption, he went on to admit!
This was over the telephone to After Hrs from New Delhi on Monday when the Jaipur lad was promoting Season 2 of his show Sach ka Samna by interacting with the students of SRCC (Shri Ram College of Commerce) on the burning issue of the day'corruption.
"But life has been in the change mode for the past three years," Rajeev said. "I have been observing life more closely and trying to become a better human being," he said honestly in a freewheeling chat on about corruption, Sach ka Samna-2, movies and life...
So, why corruption this season?
Why not corruption? Everyone seems to be talking about it! It had been the debate of the year and, most importantly, many of us learnt that it's not only about pointing out fingers but also looking inside one's self.
And Sach ka Samna has always been about corruption; people from different walks of life come clean on the show.
What happened in the SRCC auditorium?
Like I said, it was a part of show promotion. We COULD have done it in a grander way, like in a mall or somewhere else. But we chose SRCC and I was amazed to see the enthusiasm among the students, not about the show, but their mindset about the corruption (prevalent in the country). These 18-19-year-olds are so aware of all that is happening that it gives me hope that things are not bad as they seem to be. They are the future, after all!
Have you ever bribed anyone or faced instances of corruption?
I am not the ideal citizen, I get tempted. Corruption is not all about fraud in financial transaction; a person can be corrupt in many ways. But, for the past three years, I have been trying to be a better person. No, it's not that something drastic happened three years ago, but it's just that I have started understanding my responsibilities better. And then, Sach ka Samna has had a huge impact on my life.
What kind of impact?
I have stopped being judgmental. Things are not exactly as they appear to be. People from different parts of the country come on the show and they all have different stories behind them. I have started respecting people more. I have a very high regard for people walking on the road (now); I believe they can be as good or as average as I am.
People open up their lives on your show. There must have been times when you get nervous or felt bad about being intrusive...
What do I say? I connect the way human beings connect to each other. I get emotional sometimes.
The last season ended up creating loads of controversies'
We were not looking for controversies. A lot of people say controversies make a show popular, but I would like to say, it was the content that made Sach ka Samna made popular not the controversies.
And, what of your Bollywood affair? You are recognised as a good actor but do you feel the commercial success is missing somewhere?
Nothing is missing. I am getting to do my kind of films and I am happy about that. And I will only talk about my films when they will be ready to release. There had been a lot of talk about UTV's Peter Gaya Kaam Se, but the film never happened. I have a film coming next year but I do not want to talk about it right now.
And what about TV, any soap?
Only Sach ka Samna is happening on TV, no soaps. Why should I do something I have done before?

Rajeev Khandelwal speaks on a revamped format of Sach Ka Saamna. By Team Viva
It was tough to guess on what caused a near-stampede situation in the grounds of Sri Ram College Of Commerce. After much speculation, it was finally discovered that actor Rajeev Khandelwal is the reason why the chicks were feeling hot when the temperature was actually dipping. It was pretty evident that the actor whose last movie Soundtrack had failed to create ripples at the box office, still enjoys all the attention and ladies' love. Accompanied by singer Kailash Kher, Khandelwal was here to promote his signature show Sach Ka Saamna season 2.
A very famous flagship show has made a comeback on the newly-launched channel ' Life OK. The host is again the charming Khandelwal, who shot up on the popularity charts with his stint inSach Ka Saamna, season 1. This time the show is all about picking up a battle against corruption. The punchline of the current season being Bhrashtachaar Ke Khilaaf.
Khandelwal and Kher together sent out a clear message, that how a change can be brought about. "A new thought and the passion to follow ones conviction is required to bring the change," they told the enthusiastic students, who hung on to their every word. A nation-wide signature campaign was launched at the college grounds, where the students came forward and signed their thoughts against corruption.
Kher also gave the splendid rendition of the brand new anthem that was specially composed forSach Ka Saamna season 2.
Khandelwal said, "The show reflects the resurgent mood of the nation, the turmoil that we all are feeling. People are all tired with the rampant corruption and if this show can at least provoke people to think, then it's successful. The show's new format will highlight the need among average Indians, for accountability at all levels, and a corruption free future. I like doing things with a human connect. Be it the films that I have done, or the TV shows. They all have to connect with me on a human level."
