A city with exotic ethnic enclaves, efficient business centres, serene
gardens to sleek skyscrapers - If there is one word that best captures
Singapore, it is "Unique"....
As the sun sets, a different world comes
to life… the night safari where you can see the animals serenely across
the still of the night. The underwater world or the Bird Park, Singapore showcases dream heaven.
India found its first Superhero Krrissh in Singapore.. This Exposure
for Singapore opened all gates, both in India and across the Indian
diaspora globally.. Now cashing in on this popularity is our own
Tellyworld, the Team of Banoo Main Teri Dulhann were not far behind
from discovering the Aura of Singapore...as they landed in this City of
Skyscrapers for a week long Hectic Schedule..
Let us now catch up with the Stars of Dulhann, Sharad Malhotra and
Divyanka Tripathi who made it to this Fascinating City, to know more
about their stay in Singapore...
“A very nice place, spic and span, clean city, surrounded by beautiful
locales is Singapore”,
was the spontaneous reply Sharad Malhotra
when asked about the city. Talking about the schedule, this is what the
heart throb had to say, “We reached Singapore on the 8th, a very hectic
schedule was awaiting us. We worked non-stop everyday from morning 9 to
night 9. But we made sure that we got atleast a couple of hours daily
to have fun. We chilled out and had a gala time. It was great fun
with the co actors and the production team, as we enjoyed like crazy.”
Shootings and hectic work is the order of the day for these stars, but
what do they do when let loose? Can we get to know from Sharad? “I
visited all the Malls in Singapore. I also visited the Sentosa which is a
major tourist spot, it is a popular island. I also went to the biggest
mall, Vivocity which spans to 3 kms. I went to the very popular market,
Mustafa Market where you get literally everything. There was a sale on
there, so we all shopped till we dropped”.
The word ‘Shopping’ does
make us raise an eyebrow, isn’t it? Any guesses, asto what the
Chocolate Boy Sharad shopped in the Malls of Singapore? An overexcited
Sharad exclaimed, “ Asusual, I bought lots of Chocolates.(laughs) I
also bought a DVD, IPod and many other things.."
Talking about the localites, Sharad said, “The localites were really
crazy, they never believed that we were there to shoot a serial.. They
thought that we were there to shoot a film… I pulled their leg by
saying that “Yes, wait and watch, Jackie Chan will come and shoot”… It
took us time to explain to them that we were shooting for a very
popular Indian serial that is aired on Zee.. We had to explain to them
that the serial is very popular and the story is about a bride and her
mentally challenged husband… We got a great welcome at the airport and
everywhere we went to..”
When quizzed about the track in Singapore and whether the viewers will
atlast see Saagar’s recovery, Sharad brushed it off and said, “I was
expecting this to come from you… Please Tune into watch Banoo Main Teri
Dulhann Monday to Friday at 8 PM”..
Is this Diplomacy at its best?
But Sharad was quick to add on that, “Talking about few scenes, we shot
a scene where I had to be in a motor boat. The boat is speeding up and it was a very risky scene.. At one
point of time, I was to fall into the ocean, but asusual I prefered to
do the dare stunt and did not opt for body double.. It was a very
exciting scene where I was on one motor boat which was speeding and the
crew was on another following mine…Another interesting scene was one
where I run on the streets of Singapore, crying.. That was also shot
. When asked whether this motor boat scene is where Saagar’s
recovery happens, Sharad laughed it out, exclaimed “Hello, what are you
talking? What language are you talking in? I cant hear you”.
one thing is assured, Sharad is indeed a Fabulous Actor, isn’t it? But
yes, to sum it up, Sharad had this to convey to his viewers, "Singapore
episodes are going to be really fun to watch. There is a big twist in
store, so keep watching”.
We got to know the Escapades of Saagar in Singapore, so why leave the darling of all
hearts, Vidya , our own Divyanka far behind?
This is what she had to
say about Singapore, “I am in love with Singapore now. This was my
first visit to this place and I had real fun. This was the first time
in my life,that I got work satisfaction, relaxation and audience
appreciation all in a span on one week. It was so overwhelming to see
people shower so much love. I spent most of my time signing autographs…
We visited all the malls in Singapore, shopped a lot. We used to have
fun, running to malls and other places in between shots. The best part
is that, after getting back from Singapore, we got an entire day-off.
One thing I would want to tell my fans is that, I bought my first ever
car this week. It’s a Dynasty Red, Hyundai… "
Well, this is it folks from the City of Skyscrapers, Singapore… Get
ready now, to catch a glimpse of the beautiful locales of Singapore in
your favourite serial Banoo Main Teri Dulhann. Watch out for more drama
and get to know whether the adorable Saagar does recover in Singapore or not….
