TOI: Kavita Kaushik down with dengue; still shoots
By Tejashree Bhopatkar, TNN | Jan 8, 2013, 03.31 PM IST


Kavita Kaushik down with dengue; still shoots
Kavita Kaushik



Kavita Kaushik better known as Rowdy and Hero Chandramukhi Chautala of SAB TV's long running sitcom FIR is now trying hard to come out of her Dabanng Zone and play a chirpy, bubbly Maina in SAB TV's new offering Tota Weds Maina.

Interestingly, the actress is not leaving any stone unturned to shock the audiences with her new avatar. Hence, the actress in spite of suffering from Dengue is giving her best to grow the character of Maina. " I am going to shock the audiences for sure because till now for last 7 years, they have been seeing me as Dabanng Chandramukhi Chautala and now it will be difficult for them to accept me as sweet Maina. But I am going to shock them all with my new character. SAB TV has showed lot of trust in me and I am not going to led them down," promises the actress.

"I always learn my character along with essaying it. Notice my Chandramukhi Chautala in first episode, which was not that up to the mark but eventually I learned it. For me the craft of any character is more important than mere playing it," informs Kavita.

Kavita Kaushik also states that she doesn't fear anything in life and that's what keeps her going and giving her best. "I don't fear anything in life. Recently I met with an accident where our boat was actually going to sink in the sea but instead of fearing I was jumping on the deck, hoping the ship to actually sink. That is something which always keeps me going and gives me the power to work in any condition. Right now, I am suffering from Dengue but my attitude gives me energy to fight against it," signs off Kavita.

This is for the second time Kavita is suffering from Dengue, she was reported to be down with the same in the year 2011. Get well soon dear...

TOI: Chandramukhi Chautala leaked into my real life, says Kavita
IANS | Jan 8, 2013, 05.11 PM IST



Chandramukhi Chautala leaked into my real life, says Kavita
Kavita Kaushik




Kavita Kaushik has played the role of inspector Chandramukhi Chautala in comedy TV show "FIR" for so long that it not only started affecting her real personality, she also had to shake up hard to get rid of it to don the colours of Maina for her new show " Tota Weds Maina".

She has played Chandramukhi Chautala for seven years and says that she lived the character of Chandramukhi Chautala so long "it leaked into my real life, I almost became that character".

"When I was approached for this character (Maina), I told him (producer) I will have to erase Chandramukhi from Kavita and then take something else," the 31-year-old said here Monday at the launch of her new show.

Now, Kavita is happy to do something different on the screen.

Watch out for Maina and her scenes with her mother-in-law, she says and adds: "You will see such amazing emotions. I was dying to do various different emotions and sensitive scenes which I was not doing for so many years."

The best part is that she is being pampered on the sets of "Tota Weds Maina", something which was amiss on "FIR" sets for obvious reasons.

"My producer has given me an army of make-up men, hair dressers and costumes... an army that I did not have for seven years. I used to go on the ('FIR') sets and used to get ready in 10 minutes - just put on the uniform and a bit of make-up, that's it. But now all the time there is someone decking me up with bangles, chunari, hair styling and all that. But I am enjoying this," Kavita said.

"Tota Weds Maina" stars Gaurav Gera opposite Kavita and it will go on air Jan 14 on SAB TV in place of the comedy "FIR" at 10:30 p.m. Now, "FIR" will be shown at the weekends.

TOI: Gaurav Gera back with 'Tota Weds Maina'
TNN | Dec 20, 2012, 12.00 AM IST


Gaurav Gera back with 'Tota Weds Maina'
Gaurav Gera



Gaurav Gera, best remembered as Nandu of 'Jassi Jaisi Koi Nahi', is back on the tube after a brief sabbatical with 'Tota Weds Maina'. 

The show has FIR actress, Kavita Kaushik, playing the lead role of Maina. The series revolves around Gaurav's small town life inUttar Pradesh (UP) and captures the rustic backdrop along with many local cultural elements of the place. 

Anooj Kapoor, EVP and business head of the channel, said, "The content on our channel is always progressive, as well as comic, to bring in a sense of togetherness and provide entertainment to the viewers. The show stars some of the most established names in the television industry who promise to entertain the viewers." 

When asked what prompted him to take up the show, Gaurav says, "As an actor, I always wanted to explore different genres of work. This is just my effort to hone my acting skills. My character in the show is a boy from a small town in UP who ends up getting married to a very modern girl. The show revolves around how my character (Tota), and his family members, adjust to such a diametrically opposite lifestyle." 

Tota Weds Maina will be aired soon on the channel, SAB TV.

I don't feel the need to be in a relationship: Kavita Kaushik

I don't feel the need to be in a relationship: Kavita Kaushik
Talking to TOI during a recent Lucknow visit, actor Kavita Kaushik said she is enjoying her single status

LOOKING FOR SOMETHING DIFFERENT Actor Kavita Kaushik is happy making people laugh, again with her next serial. "Isn't that the best thing to do?" she asks while on a recent trip to the city to promote her serial Tota Weds Maina. Another comedy we wonder, and she answers, "In FIR I am this bad cop who intimidates people. In this serial audience will see an absolutely different side of me. Here I play sweet and traditional girl. Frankly speaking, after playing Chandramukhi Chautala for seven years even I was getting restless and wanted to do something different."
Apart from playing the Haryanvi cop, Kavita has also been seen as the venomous Manya in Kahaani Ghar Ghar Ki, the scheming Sakshi of Kutumb, the wily Porineeta in Tumhari Disha, and a lawyer in Remix. Kavita also did a cameo in Ram Gopal Varma's Ek Hasina Thi, apart from a telefilm called Padmalakshmi. "It's not as if I have only done comedy. I have played different characters too," she points out.

BORN FIGHTER Down with dengue but certainly not out, Kavita says she's every bit a fighter. "Why get scared of these small things?," she shrugs, adding, "I am not scared about anything. Recently, I had gone to celebrate New Year's on an island near Mumbai. On our way back we got caught in a storm and the yatch we were in was swaying crazily. But then also I wasn't scared. I was actually jumping on the deck and waiting for it to sink! I guess my fearlessness keeps me on going. I am suffering from dengue but it's my attitude that gives me the energy to fight it and carry on with life."

TOUGH TO PLEASE Having split from beau Karan V Grover Kavita, is enjoying her single status. "I am loving it. I am travelling like crazy, having a great time with my friends. Basically I don't feel the need to be in a relationship right now. There's no one I am answerable to ki kahan ja rahi ho, kya kar rahi ho. I am doing my own thing and loving it," says she. And if one's wondering what kind of man she is looking for, Kavita says, "He should be a superman. Look, I am a typical Haryanvi. I'm super-dominating and blunt and men get scared of me. In fact most are scared of even talking to me. A man should be confident and not get intimidated by a strong, independent girl like me. But sadly, tough men are a little hard to find," says she.

Actor Gaurav Gera is in no mood to do serious roles on TV

A comic act!
Actor Gaurav Gera might have lived many characters on screen but still people remember him for his role of Nandu from Jassi Jaisi Koi Nahi. Gaurav, who was recently in the city for the promotion of his upcoming serial, which is again a comedy show, says he has no interest in doing negative or serious roles. "I don't like husband-wife drama jahan par log hamesha rotein hi rehte hain. I come from a happy family, so I always like to do roles that make sense and keep others happy. I somehow can't distant myself from comedy," he says.

Webisodes: The future of TV
The actor has directed and acted in 5-10 minutes of video clippings, available on the internet aswebisodes. "Webisodes are the future of television. They will be as popular as television shows. The concept of webisodes is quite popular in Europe. And after seeing my video clippings many actors have also shown interest in working in them. It is an interesting concept," he says.

Kavita gets a makeover for her new show

Kavita gets a makeover for her new show

As Chandramukhi Chautala, the dabang cop of FIR, Kavita Kaushik straightens out even the toughest of goons. But the actress has undergone a drastic transformation - from a gutsy cop to a lively, spirited girl from UP - for her latest show, 'Tota Weds Maina'.

Of the many characters she has played, Kavitasays most of them are closer to Maina than Chandramukhi. However, she is happy to be able to experiment in the genre of comedy. Says Kavita, "Maina is an extension of me. She is a happy-go-lucky, confident and outgoing girl. She is a typical girl who loves beautiful kurtas and applies makeup on occasions."

Her outfits in the show have been designed by Veera, a first-timer on the small screen, who has been a stylist for films like Phass Gaya Re Obama and Vicky Donor. Says Veera, "I have given Kavita lots of Anarkalis. We have used fabrics like chiffon, georgette, etc. Kavita helped us in deciding the colour palette."

On the show, Kavita is even speaking in a UP accent to make her character look authentic. She says, "I had to work on my accent and learn the local dialect. The show is based on the lives of people in Uttar Pradesh."

Tota Weds Maina airs Monday to Friday at 10.30pm on SAB TV.
