The very popular Hiten Tejwani and Gauri Pradhan
along with their partner Nandini Singh
got ousted from Sony’s Kabhi Kabhii Pyaar Kabhi Kabhii Yaar
last week. Recent reports suggested that Gauri made a hue and cry when she got to know that they were in the bottom two. It was also reported that Gauri refused to participate in the show as she did not agree with the format. All efforts of Mahesh Bhatt
to explain the format to her was in vain as Hiten ended up dancing with his yaar Nandini Singh
for the final time, which was followed by their elimination.
However, Hiten Tejwani
claims that Gauri’s words were blown out of proportion. “First of all, the format of the show was not made clear to the contestants earlier. We were all taken aback when we got to know that the jodis who were in bottom two had to perform again on the same number they had performed before. And this is exactly what Gauri pointed at!! When we were asked to perform again with the other lowest rated jodi(Vishal Singh-Dimple-Proneeta), Gauri requested the judges to eliminate a jodi based on the previous performance. She voiced that there is no room for a big improvement as the jodis will be performing on the same number and that too, without more practice”.
Hiten says that the viewers will get the right picture when they see the particular episode on TV. “The report about Mahesh Bhatt
overhearing Gauri is totally wrong. When Gauri refused to perform again, he said that this was the format specified and we had to abide to it. After this, Gauri took a call and said she would not perform again. So I performed with Nandini after which the elimination happened as we got the lowest markings. But again, the question of Gauri backing out does not arise here, as according to the format the two lowest rated jodis had to perform either with the yaar or pyaar”.
When asked whether they were unhappy about the elimination, Hiten
quips, “Not at all! We enjoyed a lot and above all, this is a
competition where anything can happen. This is not the end of the
world, so we will move on!!”.
Lastly, when asked whether there will be a wild card, Hiten quips, “I have no idea at all. You need to ask the creative here”.
