Karan: Look at you… looking all glamorous! I look at you like this and get the visual of the same little podgy girl. Look at me talking, I was double your size then, dancing in Abhishek’s birthday party in a silver dress…you looked like a silver ball… like a silver disco ball.
Karan: And you were doing this little disco step and I remember you crying because you came third!
came third and they gave the first prize to Adi and I wanted that prize.
Karan: Now, it’s a lesser-known fact that Aditya Chopra won over Hrithik Roshan in the dance competition. Hrithik came second and Aditya Chopra came first and you came third and I remember you bawling and then Adi very magnanimously gave you the crown and made you get the first prize!
think it was in his genes to be extremely gentlemanly.
Karan: Now when I look at you I think life has taken a complete circle with him doing so well and you doing so well!
hope in the future also he gives me something generously. (Laughs)
Karan: But really today you are the queen of prime time. Two years ago I told you the same thing. Two years later you’re even beyond that. How does it feel to be the numero uno in your field?
know what? It has been the same! There was a sense of complacency, which
had come into the medium a couple of months ago when there was no competition
and we were doing well. But now suddenly with Zee coming up, it’s
becoming tougher to be on the top. But the fun, the aggression, and
the competition that TV has now…it’s only going to get better and
Karan: Ram, she has had a problem with you earlier during your bout with Ghar Ek Mandir
Ram: Yeah! I have to say I was a very different person at that point of time. She gives all the credit to my wife for changing me and I have to agree with her because my first innings in television was more of discovery. I was deciding where I want to be.
you know what happened? I didn’t know at that point of time that Gautami
and he were seeing each other and I bitched him out to Gautami only!
Karan: Ronit… you are the blue eyed boy of Balaji. You are practically in every show. With grey hair in some, without grey hair in the other! You play all kinds of ages, stages, rages, everything…How is it working with Ekta?
You know there was a point in my life where there was a lot of alcoholism.
One evening, this friend of mine called Raj, who was looking after my
work, he came back home after meeting a producer. I asked him, ‘What
did he say?’ so he went and he fixed me a drink and said, ‘Let it
go, we just had a chat!’ so I said, ‘No, tell me! I am a big boy,
I can handle it!’ He said, ‘You know Ronit… You are done! He said
why should I take Ronit when I can cast any junior artist with more
talent and less money!’ and I thought, ‘Yeah man! Maybe I am done!’
and then Ekta came along and Balaji came along and I said to myself,
‘No! I’m not!’ At that point of time, Karan, I really did not
know which way to go so that’s why I always thank her. She has brought
a dead actor, a dead human being… she has resurrected me!
Karan: Hiten, you are a young boy today. You are in your early 30’s but you are playing what… a 50 year old man in one show and who knows with another leap you will be 80 soon but you have the love and the regard of millions of people at such a young age. How does it feel?
It feels very nice. I never thought of it! I always wanted to be somebody
somewhere and suddenly one day everything happened and it’s all her
