TV's past- life regression show Raaz Pichhle Janam Ka
ratings spiked when celebrities underwent therapy.
Accordingly Season 2 has been made a film and TV actor special. The first actor to be part of the show will be Chunky Pandey
, who Dr. Trupti Jayin will put on the couch for the inaugural episode that premiers on 23rd October, Saturday night at 9pm.
When asked about his experience, this talented Bollywood actor says "While Akshay Kumar goes into his past in Action Reply, I took a holiday in my past life. At first I was worried if I might be an animal or something in my past life, but luckily I had a human avatar."
He discovered that he was a Portuguese sailor who had lived around 150 years ago. Chunky last seen in Houseful,l apparently has a much more peaceful and normal existence in his current life. "I was a bit violent and a different kind of guy back then", says he.
This is not Chunky's first TV appearance as he had judged Zara Nachke Dikha Season 1 (along with Malaika Arora Khan) and there were rumors that he might be a part of Big Boss 4. He says " I have been offered many other reality shows but Raaz is something that tickles my curiosity".
This self confessed non believer took up this offer more with a 'Believe it or not' factor." But later his wife Bhavna who had undergone similar therapy told me that things might not work, if I don't trust the concept. Hence I let myself completely free during the session and ended up having an exhilarating experience (physical and mental). I burst into sweat and my breath also got labored".
This session also helped Chunky find an answer to his unexplained fears of somebody breaking into his house. "Every night I keep checking the doors and windows before sleeping. I never could find the reason for my actions which I have now." Chunky would also recommend his industry friends to have a go themselves in their past lives. "You might unearth some dangerous revelations, but then at least your mind will be clear of phobias."
The second season will also have prominent celebrities like Mahima Chaudhary, Aryan Vaid
, Sayantani Ghosh
, Mishal Raheja
, Shakti Kapoor
, Mahi Vij etc who will attempt to take a peak in their past lives. Reporter and Author: Anil Merani
