Actress Kavita Kaushik is set to play the role of an effervescent character named Maina in a new comedy show "Tota Weds Maina". She says she can relate to the character's adventurous and fun-loving streak.

"Maina's character is wild and I believe it's just an extension of me. Maina is forever happy, confident, outgoing and so much fun. I am having a blast shooting for it because it is a very earthy realistic character who is extremely funny at the same time," Kavita said in a statement.

The actress is known for her role as Chandramukhi Chautala of "F.I.R.". She will keep up the humourous streak in the new show too, but says it will have a twist.

"It is not the witty lines that make me comical, it is my character in itself that is very funny. I had to work on my accent and learn the local dialect and had to be trained in the ways of life there to make my character authentic."

"The show is based on the lives of people in Uttar Pradesh and that is a completely different life from what we live here in Mumbai," she added.

Was the Kavita Kaushik-Aamir Ali FIR fight cooked up?



Media can get pretty creative is something that has been alleged by many. A couple of times we at Tellychakkar.com have been accused of the same. But now it appears as if a fair amount of creativity got into a report which appeared in a leading newspaper a couple of days ago.

The report alleged that Kavita Kaushik, the Chandramukhi Chautala of FIR, got into a scrap with her co-star in the show Aamir Ali and stormed off the sets, leaving the entire unit twiddling their thumbs. The report alleged that she refused to listen to her director of many years when he tried to pacify her and defuse the situation. The report further alleged that the fight arose because of Kavita's non-cooperation - both Aamir (Honge Juda Na Hum),and Kavita (Tota Aur Maina) are doing another show each and were struggling to balance the schedules of the two shows.

Knowing Kavita and Aamir as two senior and respected professionals, who are not known to throw tantrums or get into a slugfest, we got in touch with them to find out what really happened. We also contacted the producer Binaifer Kohli and the director Shashank Bali. And they all said that none of this really happened and the story is the figment of somebody's wild wild imagination.

This what Kavita had to say: "For seven years that I have been on the show, there has never been an instance of me getting into a fight or showing attitude. The fact is that on that day, I left the sets early as I had taken a half day from work. And all this was done in concurrence with the unit. And why will I show disrespect to my director; he has all throughout been my friend, philosopher and guide. I am what I am because of the nuances he helps draw out from the character."

"Apart from these things I have been too busy with the shoots these days as I am doing all the action sequences and the get-ups in the show. So, there is no time to interact with people around me," she further goes on to add.

She believes that theres's some mischief behind the news item. Says she: "This was definitely done by somebody who is jealous of my position in the show and wants to put our show and me and the unit in bad light. There has never been a happier set than FIR."

Bali echoes Kavita, saying pretty firmly: "Nobody ever walks out of my sets and as far as the other day's story is concerned, Kavita packed-up from the shoot and then left."

On being asked if FIR, was getting affected as the two actors had other show commitments, Bali clarified: "Kavita is working for the same channel so we do not have any issue. And, Aamir too is working for Sony which is the same network. Apart from this, my team respects me too much to do something like this."

Producer Binifer Kohli hasn't been going to the sets as she has twisted her wrist but she observes, "For Kavita, I can vouch this much that she is a very professional actor and no matter what it is, she will never walk out of the sets."

When we reached out to Aamir he too claimed that nothing of this sort ever happened.

So who is speaking the truth? The news report or the F.I. R unit? We, at TC would like to give the benefit of the doubt to the latter. Readers can reach their own conclusion.

Every TV actor wishes to be on silver screen: Aamir Ali

Every TV actor wishes to be on silver screen: Aamir Ali

Aamir Ali, on his recent trip to Indore, got talking with us on daily soaps, reality shows and why he's not doing cameos in films any more

I prefer daily soaps over reality shows
People ask me that in this era, when reality shows enjoy such a huge popularity, why am I not seen more often in them? I've only participated in two reality shows - Nach Baliyeand Zara Nachke Dikha - which were dance-based shows. And honestly speaking, I find some of them to be very stupid and baseless. Participating in such serials kind of affects your image in the eyes of both, the audiences and your social circle. On the contrary, I find daily soaps to be better. Be it comedy or romance, at least they're creative and help you explore the artiste within. I was approached for a few reality shows that are a rage now, but somehow I couldn't connect with the concept. I'm no one to say that they're good or bad, but I don't like all of them.

Indore is rocking
I have only been to Indore once before this time, and I must admit that things have changed here drastically. This time around I found the roads to be excellent. The infrastructure is great and it's so not-crowded when you compare it to any congested metro city. Though the natives here are telling me that 'abhi aapne dekha hi kitna hai?', but I'm pretty sure that this city is rocking. Also, I'm a big foodie so I'm looking forward to gorging on some daal-bafla. Indore and its janta rocks!

Being a star is important
I have done a few cameos in films, but now people don't see me more often on the silver screen. That's only because I'm choc-a-block with my schedule for television shows. For me, being a wanted actor is important, not for the medium you work in. I may work in films and people may not even know my real name. That's not being a star! Today wherever I go, I'm their hero from one serial or the other. Isn't that a great achievement? Of course, every TV actor wishes to be onthe big screen with a great debut and so do I, but I'm very happy with my space. I wish to explore more in terms of characters and genres, and which is happening at a decent pace. And anyways, I'm so finicky with my choice of roles that kabhi kabhi I feel that I'm such a pakauperson. I can kill my serials' directors with my constant queries before taking on a project. Filmsmein itna time kahan hai logon ke paas?

"Maina is identical to Kavita": Kavita Kaushik

"Maina is identical to Kavita": Kavita Kaushik

Kavita Kaushik in conversation with Tellybuzz regarding her upcoming show Tota Weds Maina

Kavita Kaushik, best known for playing Chandramukhi Chautala in SAB TV's FIR, is ready to play her new innings with her upcoming show Tota Weds Maina on SAB TV. Let's know more about this show,  her character and more from Kavita…

What was the reason to take up the showTota Weds Maina?

To be very honest, I was bored of playing Chadramukhi. I was tired in terms of output. I know there is a lot in me as a character that I can project and give my audience. I love my audience and I know what they want. I like to surprise them. When they say, that they can't imagine Chandramukhi without me, then this statement makes me want to surprise them.

Do you think that the audience will accept you as Maina after seeing you as Chandramukhi for long 7 yrs.?

Time will tell! I believe that the audiences are also greedy and intelligent like us actors. They want us to do new things and always want more. So, why shouldn't we give them a new character!

Are you enjoying your new look?

I am loving it. I have an army of people who are running after me asking me to wear different types of bangles, trying out different hair styles and outfits. I used to get ready within 10 minutes. While doing FIR. I hardly applied any make – up. Now, I have to keep combing my hair and using different beauty products

Tell us about your character in the show?.

mastikhor girl is hidden behind Chandramukhi whose name is Kavita Kaushik. Maina is identical to Kavita Kaushik who is very naughty, she wants to try doing everything. Sometime ago I went to Goa with some of my friends. We took a motor boat to reach to a private island. We all had great fun there. When it became to grow dark, everyone started telling us to leave from that locale but we were busy enjoying. When we were on the way in the sea while returning, a storm rose in between. I was enjoying and shouting while we all were in trouble. I don't like going to  parties. I like having fun like this way. This is the way Maina is! She is adventurous,  crazy and wants to do everything in life. She is not scared of anything.

Tota is totally opposite to Maina. What will happen if someone like Tota enters your life?

I need somebody to absorb me. When I shoot with Gaurav, I stay very happy and he handles me very well. In real life, if I  find someone like this, then it will be very good for me.

You enjoy being a part of comic shows. Will you be interested in doing emotional saas-bahusagas in future?

We have shot a few episodes for Tota Weds Maina and we have already shot an emotional sequence for one episode. I enjoyed a lot while shooting for it and my producer told me about this as well. Actually I was shooting an emotional scene after really long.  There will be a lot of emotional sequences in the show. I share a great bond with my on-screen mother in law, off-screen also. The audience will have a great time watching the show.

How do you keep yourself fit?

Smiling and laughing. I also take care of what I am taking in as food. I work a lot.

TV actress Kavita Kaushik, best known as the strict yet kind-hearted police officer Chandramukhi Chautala of "F.I.R.", is geared up to show her romantic side in new show "Tota Weds Maina". She says she likes to surprise audiences with every role.

"I have been doing 'F.I.R.' the past seven years. As an actor, you want to do different roles. You have some responsibility towards your audience. I always get a kick out of surprising my audience with my performance and playing a different role," Kavita told IANS.

"This role Maina is a role like that. I hope it is not early for me to say that it is as amazing and brilliant for an actor to play as Chandramukhi," she added.

Pointing out the difference between the two shows, she said: "'F.I.R.' was an out and out comedy which was sometimes over the top but this is more real. This is different. The audience will feel very differently. You will see me with real emotions."

Kavita feels the stories, content and treatment on the Indian small screen have hardly undergone any upgradation over the years.

"Many shows hold no social obligation to society and don't care about the message they are giving out to the youngsters and youth. On lots of shows, there is no scope of characterisation and performance. Earlier, we used to have these really good shows. Nowadays, you have reality shows which are all scripted drama and nonsense... where is the kind of television upgradation which we are looking at?" she said.

With two shows in her kitty for now, Kavita is not looking for anything else.

"I have just signed 'Tota Weds Maina' and 'F.I.R.' is also there. So on TV, I don't have time for anything else. But I am open for advertisements," she said.

TOI:Chandramukhi Chautala leaked into my real life


http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/entertainment/tv/Chandramukhi-Chautala-leaked-into-my-real-life-says-Kavita/articleshow/17940567.cms
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:Kavita Kaushik down with dengue; still shoots


http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/entertainment/tv/Kavita-Kaushik-down-with-dengue-still-shoots/articleshow/17939213.cms
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...
