Seen them lately?
Sometimes characters just fall off the face of the serial, leaving the viewer feeling a little lost and perhaps a trifle cheated. Because most of the time the role ends rather abruptly and the viewer keeps wondering whatever happened to the character in the serial. Indya.com traces some bhule-bisre characters and ask them what they are upto right now.
Neel (Rakesh Bapat) from Saat Phere
Played the ex-lover of Saloni but was slated to marry Saloni's sister at her own request. But he has been missing from the serial since then. Says Rakesh, "I was doing other stuff basically films - Canadian films. Neel's character will be back in the serial. There is some suspense element in the serial which I can not tell now for that you have to speak to the director of the serial." Tanya (Arzoo Govitrikar) from Ek Ladki Anjani Si
She plays the wife of Nikhil. The character of Tanya is negative. She is missing from the serial for a long time. She says, "I think the story has gone far too forward. I don't think so the director of the serial will include my character".Eklavya (Akash Deep Saigal) from Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhie Bahu Thi
Eklavya is the son of Ansh Virani. He is very polite and close to all. But for a long time this character is missing. When contacted he replied, "The ongoing track is not in favor of me, when things go really bad in the serial I will be back to solve the problem. Don't worry I will be back soon."Gaurav Agrawal (Gautam Chaturvedi) from Kahaani Ghar Ghar ki
Gaurav - Om's brother is not seen for a long time. The character of Gaurav is positive, but in some cases he does not support his bhabi
-Parvati. The serial has gone 18 years ahead and still Gaurav's character is missing. When contacted he replied, "The track which it is on going has a different story. Janki/Parvati is taking revenge on her own family. My track is not there but I will be back."Rudra (Sharad Kelkar) from Sindoor Tere Naam KaThis character is also missing for quite a long time. His character is positive. When contacted he replied that, "At that time I was doing two soaps simultaneously - Saat Phere, Sindoor Tere Naam Ka. It was very difficult to manage, as a result of this I was not able to give enough time to my family. Let's see if the channel wants to include me in the camp of Sindoor... cast again. I will definitely do it."
Chirag (Hussain) from Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi
This character is missing for many years. The character of Chirag suddenly disappeared from the serial. "I was busy with other shows like Kum Kum, Krishna Arjun
so I was not able to concentrate on Chirag's character. I don't think the channel will call Chirag back."Pooja (Prachi Shah) from Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi
She had played Tulsi's sister-in-law, the other daughter-in-law of the Viranis but suddenly disappeared. "I left the show two and half years back and I don't want to play the role of grandmother."
