It was in 2006 during "Left Right Left" that the idea popped up in some great minds to create a FC for Ali Beg aka Harshad Chopda, what many of us witnessed much later they were lucky enough to have seen back then. Unfortunately, at that time many of us including myself did not even know about his existence, as most  of us in those days would do anything but watch an Indian soap. The difference between then and now is proof enough to reflect what this man has done to us. Over the past 6 years many joined this FC, some remained regular, for some it was a passing phase. Many old members are not around today, replaced by the next lot, new members keep joining and this place has been a buzz ever since. For this 75th FC I was asked to write an intro about Harshad but I chose to write about the nutcases read us, the people who make this place alive, the old and the new, who hold this place dear to our hearts, the place that in most frustrating days as fans gives us refuge and on most disappointing of days we come back here to  feel at home.

The relationship between us fans and the person to whom this FC belongs is a strange one, some call it our obsession, some think we are crazy fan girls, some even choose to insult our intellect but in our hearts we know it's neither. The man for whom we make this FC every time with equal zeal and dedication, is someone who has touched a chord in our hearts, who has brought joy to us over the years with his sheer brilliance on screen, with his perfect portrayal of characters, with his hard work and dedication, with his down to earth nature and humility. He has earned our love and respect and that is the reason many of us after coming to know him once, find it hard to move on.  

We hope love, respect and praises always grow for Harshad, we pray he keeps on shining like a bright star bringing endless joy to more and more people, touching their lives, making them brighter. Here is hoping this place will always be buzzing with activity, joy, happiness, endless love and dedication for Harshad Chopda, the man we proudly call our own.

I want to thank each and every member of this FC who has helped keep this place going over the years, who has contributed for the FCs, in terms of write ups, siggies, poems, messages etc.  Every FC and its outlook has been a proof of their love and dedication for Harshad, may this love keep on growing forever. Whether we remain active or not may this place always keep growing and going. May the praises never stop showering for Harshad and may he get loads of success and happiness always.

Here is to him, to us and many more FCs to come

A treasure to behold... A story forever told
That's our dear Harshad
The one with a heart of gold!!!





He's known to be special,
Just one of his kind...
With his antics at work he casts a spell;
And steals our peace of mind.

***



Some love him for all he is,
And some cling on to debate...
How can one be so grounded?
When stars touch one's fate.

***



Before my remaining sanity,
Out of the window flees...
I gather my mind he has set in frenzy;
and my hands on  writing sprees.

***



With few lines put together,
I try to comprehend...
A phenomenon called Harshad Chopda;
In a jiffy I have penned.

***




His eyes speak a thousand words,
Which our heart yearns to hear...
No wonder it skips a beat;
When he sheds a soulful tear.

***




And then sometimes these very eyes,
Put up a different ploy...
The playful gaze then leaves us;
Gaping for breath and turning coy.

***




He disarms many with his endearing smile,
Each smile from heart no doubt...
Nothing superficial about this lad;
He's a gem inside and out.

***




His laughter is worth a million,
A soulful happy sound...
The one that spreads cheer around each time;
Mirthful and profound.

***




The tousled hair steals the heart,
Daydreaming it does propel...
And then a sweet war ensues;
When he douses it with gel.

***




He sleeps like a cherubic baby,
Without a thought or care...
And takes to sleep so lovingly;
That all we do is stare.

***




He so dearly loves his food,
And likes to eat a lot...
Not only the one that fills his tummy;
But also the food for thought.

***




He gives us reasons to smile,
The ones which are forever treasured...
The depths of which can never be fathomed;
Nor the abundance measured.

***




He does so not just once,
But every given time...
For he knows spreading cheer;
Will never cost a dime.

***




He imprints on our hearts,
Memories so rich yet rare...
The ones which we fanatics,
Find different ways to share.

***


I could go on forever,
Listing his traits in rhyme...
But then I think I'll save the rest;
For yet another time!!!

***

An impressionable young girl

Can be infatuated

With as many as a thousand characters

In her lifetime

But she can fall in love with only one

There are many moons for every planet

But there is only one sun

But what if the characters are the same

The moon and the sun are the same

The source of divine light and love are the same

What if the same man enchants you every time you see him on screen

Slipping into different skins with the same sheen

Like a butterfly emerging from its cocoon

Even after long absences from your eyes

He can make you swoon

 
 
 
He made the 'bad boy' look hot

Long before it came into fashion

He started off as a villain

But only rose in progression

To become the sweet guy next door

The one who is nervous about his first day

In the new place

The one who is your friend

Never mind if there's 'freak' written all over your face

The one who doesn't need a spotlight

To be noticed in a crowd

Because that dazzling white smile

Is what singles him out.

But then, even the sweetest dessert needs a little punch

Even the softest delicacies need a little crunch

 
 
 
 
Suddenly, this young man would be contained no longer

He became more mature, more talented, and stronger

He burst into the scene like the moon against the sky

Like the roaring desert wind, and he was no longer shy

He was somebody with determination in his eyes

Somebody to tempt you to break all your ties

As the bride sat looking forward to a safe future

He threatened to send hers, and our hearts too into rapture

He was in a land so far away

But he would soon burst forth to save the day

His name signified love, and he displayed it brilliantly

He came back from the dead, and charmed us all instantly

A loving father, a passionate lover

Even though he's gone, he'll stay in our hearts

 
 

 
The city of Joy, as its popularly known
 
Had more reason to rejoice,
 
For another special hero was about to return from a foreign land
 
And make our hearts burst and our eyes moist
 
He was somebody who we'd already known as a child
 
Self-conscious of his weight, akward, but with a charming smile
 
Gone was that vulnerability, it was replaced by hardness
 
As he had forgotten the childhood horrors he had witnessed
 
He had forgotten his true love, and tried to replace it with something
 
Which he thought was his love, but was just another fling
 
He was upset with his father, upset with how easily he'd been pushed away
 
He'd been separated from the friend he needed to survive everyday
 
Anybody can play the suave business tycoon
 
Anybody can be cool and make our hearts swoon
 
But only somebody special can play a person driven mad by love
 
Only somebody special can act innocent and devoid of recognition for his beloved
 
Only somebody with real daring can scrawl on the wall of a lunatic asylum
 
And not strike our hearts with fear
 
Only somebody with sincere eyes
 
Can make us cry with his tears
 
He made the rapid transition from industrialist to a madman with ease
 
He could be the angry Byronic hero as well as the flirty tease
 
He could show all the layers of his character in just one moment
 
And he could make somebody who'd never even liked him into a poet
 
His name means 'love' and that was exactly what every mannerism of his signified
 
Whether he was in the throes of passion or torn by family divide
 
When he held his love in his arms, you could feel the warmth and the caring
 
When he confronted the villain, you felt like you were the one at whom he was staring
 
Even when the story had us at our wits end
 
He was the only thing that ever made sense

 
 
 


Kanhaiya, so handsome, so playful, so teasing
 
Found the perfect man to carry his name ever-pleasing
 
This time not from the US of A but from the city of our colonizers
 
Carefree, with loose morals, and yes a womanizer
 
Neither an angry young man nor a responsible mature son
 
But a confused soul looking for his 'The One'
 
He had been an obedient child before, the darling of the family
 
But now he'd turned wayward, and wanted to break free
 
Carrying with him an embarassing secret, he put aviators on his eyes
 
And came up the airport elevator, determined to hide all his lies
 
Not knowing of the girl who promised to draw all his secrets out
 
And be the perfect soulmate to this charming little lout
 
He wanted to set out his own path in life
 
But she was determined to play the perfect wife
 
A Mamma's boy, and yet eager to get out of the clutches of Mamma
 
With HC playing him he was like a dose of manna
 
With that casual swagger and confident attitude
 
He was able to charm us even when he was being rude
 
With the right combination of rebelliousness, innocence and leather jackets
 
In both his family and our hearts, he was one explosive packet
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
But after Kanhaiya went, he was again incarnated
 
For to bring light into our lives he is fated
 
This time as Raghav, a man who is just and fair
 
To rescue his love from Raavan's lair
 
But he was just as equally wayward as the role he'd played before
 
Though forget business, he was a rough-and-tough mechanic to the core
 
Yet he had a soft heart that beat for those in need
 
He was the hero to the damsel in distress, without the shining armour and the steed
 
He was a man of labour, with conviction in those chocolate brown eyes
 
When he glared at you, you couldn't help but be hypnotized
 
He didn't need to say anything: what spoke for him was his intensity
 
Despite the pain in his heart, he was filled with sincerity
 
Banished from his home, you could see the misery in his voice when he spoke
 
When he confronted the villain, your heart was not filled with fear but with hope
 
When fate dealt a fatal blow to his beloved
 
He changed himself to become worthy of her love
 
He became slick and suave, and yet the old honest Raghav remained
 
Though he was a gambler now, his values were still the same
 
The gruffness was replaced by maturity, but the intensity stayed the same way
 
He still cared about his family, just that he had new ways to save the day
 
Somebody you could look up to, somebody you could idolize
 
That is our Raghupati for you summarized
 
So that was our Harshad Chopda Katha, the great epic on the man who continues to enthrall us with his versatility. But special mentions must go to the following, without whom this story just wouldn't have been the same: Hair Gel, Toweliya, Aviators, Doodh, Mood Aur Bahut KuchWink

Wow just can't believe that we are actually hitting 75th Harshad Chopda's FanClub! It has been a long journey. I still remember how there were only Four members who lead a draft of this place, and then slowly and gradually as the time passed, so many people all around the globe became an integral part of it. I can bet no one ever thought Harshad's FC would be reaching at this stage, but well it's just all because of Harhsda's inborn Talent and his hardwork to make it known to the world, We all are here :-).

Let me take a chance over here to thank each and every member of this FC, as its only because of you guys and your nonstop Harshad chanting Mantra that we are able to reach here. And InshAllah we will hit 100th FC in no time ! Love you All

Now to Harshad...well words never do justice when I think of saying something about him. It's been years now and still I feel speechless. Speechless because its like I'm arrested in some kind of blind fold by Harshad. LOL. but yeah it's true. The way he had given life to Karan, Ali, Akshat, Prem, Anurag, Mohan and now Raghav is just amazing! I never thought one day these characters would be ruling my life. And all thanks to Harshad. He really deserves some appreciation and I wish he gets his due soon ! And yeah one more thing, no matter what happens Harshad your true Fans will always stick to you, like we already did in past. Wish you all the best. Hope you get more and more success and happiness in life. love You.

We will be there supporting you always!. Bless you always

When I think of you I am unable to think anything else
When look at you I just can't see anywhere else 
When I start talking about you I don't have enough words 
When I count your potentialities I forget counting 
When I see you performing I forget all my sadness
When  I hear you speaking your voice it soothes my nerves
When I watch you putting all your effort in your work I wish to be like you
Without watching you my day is not complete 
I've been so addicted to watch you that I see you daily in dreams
This is you Harshad who has made me insane
And I love you for this Smile

Success is not a matter of being the best and winning the race.
Success is a matter of handling the worst and still finishing the race.
This is what we like in you and love you for as you have always triumphed the worst and came out winner.
You are heart winner , your honesty, humbleness and sensibility are some virtues that has bonded me with you as proud fan. Keep rocking. Lot to say but have no words to express. God bless you

"HC is one actor in Indian Television who never fails to bring something new to the table everytime he enters a show. I think I've said this a dozen times already -- but that's only because it deserves to be said -- he's one of the few who will go beyond what the director says and give the role his own interpretation, and match his mannerisms with what he's portraying, all the while giving it a piece of himself. In Raghav, we see the activist side of HC; a man who believed that to control a woman's autonomy was to violate her, a man who wouldn't hesitate to go against those he loved in order to do what was right. HC made Raghav a troubled, messed up man, who nonetheless was able to empathize, especially with the underdog. A man who would never, ever support wrong.

Ironically, it was in leaving the role of Raghav for good - before the channel and CVs could abuse the characters, and the cause, further - that HC stood up for his beliefs and raised a powerful voice.

God bless you always, HC.

Mera Harshad PyaaraDay Dreaming

Kayi baras pehle ki baat hai 
Ki ek chehra mujhe parde par dikha tha..
Na jaane kya baat thi unme ki 
Tabse har khwab unke naam likha tha...Embarrassed

Pata chala jab ki maine jis saal janam liya tha,
Usi saal woh pyaare shaks bhi is duniya me aaye,
Tab ek ajeeb si khushi hui thi dil ko,
Aur hum unko dil se apna khaas dost banaaye...Hug

Phir kayi baras tak hum unse anjaan rahe, 
Aur unko to pehle se hamari khabar na thi,
Lekin jab bhi dikhte the wo kahi par bhi,
To tanha hokar bhi tanha hamari dagar na thi..Smile

Aankhon me unki aisi noor ki mera jahaan roshan karde,
Muskaan me maasumiyat itni ki khamoshi ko zubaan karde,
Ab kya tareef kare hum us pyaare farishte ki 
Chehre me kashish itni ki banjar ko gulistaan karde..Blushing

Wo jo bhi kirdaar nibhaaye to is kadar shiddat dikhi,
Jo bas kaagaz pe likha naam tha, usme jaise jaan phook di,
Kabhi koi bhula na paaye aise logo se milwa diya,
Aur har kirdaar ka ehsaas hamare dilon me hi rok di...Thumbs Up

Kabhi sharmile Ali bane to kabhi masoom Anuraag,
Mohan ki adaa kabhi to kabhi Prem ki achhaai thi,
Akshat ki sharaarat me bhi kuch waqt tak jaan bhar gaye,
Karan ka tedhapan tha tab to ab Raghav ki gehraai thi...Clap

Har roop me har bhes me hame dikhe sirf ek nayaab insaan,
Wo jinke hunar se badhke unki rooh ki sachhaai thi,
Unko ek nazar dekhlu to din mera nikhra sa lagta hai,
Aur aaj ek anokhi khushi hai jahaa pehle bas tanhaai thi.Smile

Mujhe aapse bas itna kehna hai farishto se pyaare shehzaade,
Jab tak yeh jaan rahegi aapke hi naam meri duaaye rahengi,
Aur aap chaahe kuch bhi thaan le apni zindagi mein, 
Bina jhuke bina hile hamesha kaayam meri wafaaye rahengi.Day Dreaming

with lots of love

First of Congratulations on the 75th FC of our beloved Harshad Chopra'.StarStar

I just don't understand where to start yaar''..

Harshad Chopra'the person who makes me smile when he smiles, makes me cry when he has tears ib his eyes, person who makes me blush with his romantic charm''

Words will fall short to describe this person'

When I first saw him as an actor during last few days of KDMHMD, I really didn't know how much popular he is. It was Tere Liye promo which brought that click in my heart for this person' while watching the initial promos of TL, I was lyk 'God, wat a superb actor he is'' After that it was an SBS seg where I saw him off-screen for the first time(Tie wala scene with APK) n I was again lyk 'wow yaar he is sooo cuteee'' n when I watched him in d first episode of TL, he just left me astonished with his performance' it was then wen I started reading his articles, I tried to get as much information about him as possible' with each article or any news, I started to fall more n more for him'

With each passing day, I realized that he is not only a superb actor, but a very very genuine person, a good human being.. there is a reason that I don't hv much fondness towards the glamorous world and that is dat I just can't stand their "I'm the best" attitude' but I found harshad totally different from those people' I really admire people whose feet are on ground even after getting all success in life n I can say this that harshad is one of those few people for me.. his humble, polite n down-to-earth nature made me respect him more n more.. there may be so many to charm u wid luks, but harshad is one who can make you fall for him with his heart..

My love for my hero started increasing when I found this amazing forum n it's totally gone HC pankhas'gosh!! u guyz made me even more mad in his love with ur posts n love for him n thank u guyz for that..

Another thing I lyk about HC, is his bonding with kids..i just luv people who  have fondness for kids 'whether it's kuhu(TL) or that little kid form DP(I forgot his name) or it's our pyara Yash' his onscreen n offscreen bonding with kids is just adorable.. someone has said ki "bachche unhi ke sath ghul mil jate hain jo bachchoki tarah saaf dil ke hote hai" n harshad is just lyk that..


Harshad has always been a great inspiration for me.. his hardwork, dedication towards his work is simply commendable.. his eyes are enough to convey the message.. n only a dedicated actor can have this ability n harshad is indeed one of them.. whether it's 'Pagal ONU' or 'charming and handsome Mohan' or 'inspirational Raghav', he portrayed each of his character lively n that's why we could connect to him..n only coz of harshad(n APK n TL), I cud find the goal of my life' all thanx to them'

A salute to this person who is not only the BEST ACTOR but also a good HUMAN BEING' a person, to whom I can proudly look as my inspiration'.

May god bless him with all the success and happiness he deserves' Harshad was BEST for me, he is and always will be..

For the first time I have written such a long post.. so sorry if I have bored any one of you.. but I couldn't help myself'Smile

Let's have a rocking time here till we get our new home with harshad's fadu comeback'love u harshad n love u all my crazzzyyy HC pankhasss'

"I run out of words when am asked to say why i love u so much and why i just love you this much Harshad. One glimpse of you in Tere Liye...and the rest is history.You are the reason for me watching Indian soaps.If not for you I would have loved a lot of tv actors...but you have set a standard that no one will ever surpass.When i first came across your offscreen segments,I desperately fell in love with you more...n even today you make me discover deeper depths of love.Each time i watch you as Prem,Anurag,Mohan or Raghav(many more to come) you keep me in a magical trance.The depth you bring to your roles is beyond beautiful.May Lord bless you with all success and joy.Love you so much."

People call me crazy for you, friends make fun off me.
Parents keep scolding to get free from your charm and my head keps on thinking that why do i have to be so mad for you. Why do i have to get attched to those fictional characters with heart which you portray onscreen? Harshad , everything still remains the question and i get the answer when i watch you onscreen, your charisma, your charm is magical, and like many fans of yours i am also addcited to it.
I feel proud and happy, tha god made me your fan. You had said that your fans motivate you for your hardwork, and i am saying similarly you motivate us to live our life being positive.
Feeling immensely happy to hit the 75th FC .

Happiness as light as air.
Happiness as light as air.
LOVE as DEEP as OCEAN.

Every time I try to comprehend "Harshad Chopda"... A smile lights up my face...

My words many a times do not do justice to the way I feel when writing those lines about him...

And so I guess I tend to leave my statements regarding Harshad Chopda with "..." (yup the three dots)  following each sentence. As if there is much more to than what I'm able to write about him... Write for him...


Well I'm supposed to write out a message to Harshad Chopda and here I am .. smiling to myself ...looking out of my window... to see the rain drops wet the ground beneath... spreading the wet muddy fragrance in its wake.. giving me all the more reasons to churn out another couplet in his name.


***


Jab maddham si boondon ne bhikri,

Ek saundhi si khusboo...

Yaadon ko tumhare liye sirhane;

Tassavur se ki mithi guftagu...


**

Yeh baaton ka silsila,

Yunhi jaari rahega...

Tumhe mile who har khushi;

Dua mein dil yehi kahega...


**

Main ek akeli nahi jo maange tumhari khushi,

Aur bhi hain chahnewale kayi...

Jab milegi tumhe tumhari chah;

Paaoge hum sabhi ko muskurate wahin...


***


God Bless You dear Harshad... You will surely get all your dues and in leaps and bounds... Keep smiling.. Because your smile has been a reason for many to smile...Big smile

    And this 75th FC goes out to speak for the phenomena that is Harshad Chopda... Thanks again Harshad for propelling us to write further everytime... may this FC rock as the previous ones and preceed beautifully for the many more to come in future... And now I get back with my usual japp of HC HC HC... Off to the 'oh so famous lala land' HC is hell bent on sending us to... Day Dreaming

This 75th FC celebration comes at yet another odd time in our fan history (nothing new I know). I don't have much to say except thank you for the joy you have brought in our lives, thank you for the wonderful characters you breathed life into, etching them in our memory forever. I pray that you get all the success and happiness always and May God shower his unlimited blessings on you. Seeing the course of events at times I feel our prayers for you are mere words that we repeat every day, with no affect but deep down I still believe God is listening. So good luck and despite being apprehensive of if I want to bear the torture of another daily soap, I know I am eagerly waiting for your return already :| So Good Luck and come back soon (Short break is all we can allow, am sure you know us too by now :P)

Harshad's 75th FC! WOW... That feels like the greatest accomplishment as a fan!


Harshad Chopda! This name, this man meant nothing to me before 5th May 2008. That day also, I happened to watch him by mistake. Today I feel, some mistakes are worth committing  and this is one mistake that turned out to be the best blessing of life.

It all just started with watching him act a character, but later on I happened to see one of his offscreen segments and was sweetly surprised to know that HC is so different compared to his onscreen presence. As it turned out, there was no turning back after this point. With each passing day, my respect, love, appreciation and gratitude only kept growing for HC.

I am just spell-bound even today when I watch any of his old scenes, the impact that those scenes have is still the same... be it Prem hurt on knowing about Chahat, Onu teasing Taani, Mohan lieing to Kastur with a smile on his face, Raghav selflessly helping Sia.

What is amazing is... none of the characters have been the same. I have to keep reminding myself that it is the same Harshad enacting those different roles. Though they all had love as a common factor but still HC always added his own flavor and made sure each character is miles apart from the others.

It was only when TL was ending that I decided to start interacting with people here and then found this FC. It has been like a second home. Not a day goes by when I dont visit the FC, when I dont check out for any new news of HC. I have truly enjoyed my journey here, with all the other fans and HC as well.

In the end, all I want to say to Harshad is ...Always remain the way you, because that is what makes you special. God bless you with all success and happiness.


And ofcourse... Thank you Harshad for just being there for us!!!!

Sam

Born in Gondia, a town Near Nagpur(India) on may 17th 1983 , Harshad Prakash Chopda's family decided to move to Pune, following his graduation as a computer engineer from Modern College Of Engineering. His parents never approved of his celluoid dreams and thus they enrolled him in an engineering college.Harshad audaciously states"I only did engineering because my parents asked me to do so.However, i was clear in my mind as to what i wanted"
 
Later after completing his studies he headed straight to Bombay to pursue his acting career hoping to make it big one day just like Salman Khan, his favorite bollywood actor. He struggled hard during these years waiting for his big break but before that break would come he found himself successfully auditioning for Zee's Mamta and so began the journey of the actor Harshad Chopda!

He bagged his first prominent role in his second serial Left Right Left where he essayed the character Cadet Ali Baigh. This role found him a small measure of fame as he starred alongside actors like Rajeev Khandelwal but he feared typecasting and so he soon quit the show. He joined the cast of Amber Dhara soon after quitting Left Right Left. He essayed the role of Akshat and his performance was acknowledged at a larger scale. Unluckily, his stint with Amber Dhara didn't last long due to problems with the production house.


After remaining off screen for a short period of time, Harshad bounced back strongly with the Balaji show Kis Desh Mein Hai Meraa Dil where he portrayed the character of a passionate lover, Prem Juneja. He was recognized for his outstanding performance at various award functions.
 
After desh...harshad bounced back in action to essay the character of anuraag ganguly...a character which had various shades as anuraag's journey to discovering love unfolds...where ultimately harshad played insanity to such perfection that paagal onu had his own exclusive fan following...
After tere liye...harshad shed the lover boy image of telly and played the grey shaded character of Mohan Gala in Dharampatni who is far from being the perfect and loving husband...as he portrays the role of a drunkard who ultimately discovers the positive things in him to create a success story. Harshad played Mohan To The T...be it his one liners...his passion for work...his guilts...his struggle to breathe free in gala house...everything was perfect...
breathe free in gala house...everything was perfect...
 
he is now back as raghav...Raghav is one fearless young lad who only works on what his heart say. Not his name but his personality is also synonymous to Lord Ram, who was saviour for many, same way he is a saviour for many though his ways can be different given account to his intensity and angst but all he wants is no injustice with anyone but he does not like fighting for them, he likes making them capable to fight for themselves. HE does not speak much as his actions do that job and if often being misinterpreted for the same.His fearless attitude, strong will, passion to set everything right and for that going to any limits is what sets him apart from the crowd.
 
Below is a brief description of all his on screen characters so far...
