For TV stars, superstition goes beyond the letter 'K'

They may throw all caution to the wind as the characters they play, but in reality are TV actors as forward as they make us believe? Sapana Patil finds a few still holding on to their superstitions as closely as they do to their vanity cases!
I am superstitious about my old make-up box. I have a VIP vanity case that I received as a wedding gift 13 years ago, and I always carry it along to a shoot. The day I don't have it, the serial I am acting in, at that time, goes off the air. Today it contains nothing more than a few basic items, but I don't take the risk of keeping it at home.
I believe in logic. I so strongly oppose orthodox beliefs that I refuse to believe in the commonest superstitions. I get irritated when people tell me that they are superstitious and get scared when a cat crosses their way. When a cat crosses my way, it doesn't bother me at all. In fact, I make it a point to cross the cat's path to defy superstition.
I used to harbour superstitions during my school and college days, not anymore. On the day of a school or college cricket match, I would wear my favourite pair of socks. I am a right-handed person, but before batting, I would assume a left-handed stance for a few seconds.
I am a little superstitious about the colours I wear. I have been told by a panditji that I should wear certain colours and avoid others. It's not like I am very meticulous about this rule, but as far as possible, I try and follow it. For example, I have been told to avoid black for meetings and wear bright colours like white and red on Saturdays.
I am not superstitious in particular. I am generally superstitious about things most of us are superstitious about; like a cat crossing my way.
I am superstitious about cleaning my make-up box. The day I do, the serial I am currently working on goes off the air. When my make-up box gets dirty, I simply buy a new one. I am also superstitious about the number nine. This number is lucky for me. I make sure to be stay in rooms with numbers that add up to nine. My car's registration number also totals up to nine.

Kohli talks about her marriage and career plans
Reena Thapar Kapoor
Gurdeep Kohli is all set to tie the knot with long time boyfriend Arjun Punj. "We've been formally engaged for the last five months, marriage is the next step," says Gurdeep with a gleam in her eyes. She happily shows off the diamond ring on her finger. "Arjun has just bought a house for us in Lokhandwala and we're in the process of readying it, once that's done we take the pheras."
Incidentally, the duo worked together in Sanjeevani and that's where they fell in love. We ask Gurdeep about Arjun's hasty decision to quit Rajshri's television show Woh Rehne Wali Mehlon Ki. She says, "Quitting Woh Rehne… was completely Arjun's decision. He said that he was not comfortable with certain things and that's about it. I never question him about his decisions because I believe that he is far more practical than me. The issue about him not having any shows on hand is never discussed because it's not important."
Talking about decisions we quiz her about turning down lead roles in Swades and Ishq Vishq. Today every TV actor worth his name would do anything to do films and she actually said no to filmmakers like Ashutosh Gowarikar and Ken Ghosh? "Look, all this is destiny. I was not destined to do those films. My family is over-protective about me and they were apprehensive about me getting into films. I'm content with what I have. Television has given me immense satisfaction and recognition. I couldn't ask for more. don't repent losing Swades and Ishq Vishq to other actresses."

Another couple who claim that dancing comes easy to them is Gurdeep Kholi and Arjun Punj. "We were offered the challenge even this time, but because of our other commitments we could not. But of course, if in future we are ever approched for the same, we will definitely grab it for sure. and above all we are good dancers and therefore chances of winning also increases," says Gurdeep.
