Karan Singh Grover and Jennifer Winget touted as the Shahrukh-Kajol of tellyland, have been reunited thro' Dill Mill Gayye on Star One, much to their fans' delight!
Here is the duo in an exclusive chit-chat with Telly Buzz on the occasion of Dill Mill Gayye celebrating 400 episodes...
Both of you are part of a show which has crossed the 400 episode mark. How does it feel to share the success?
Karan: Well it has been a beautiful journey so far. And I really, really hope that we as a team do all that it takes to reach the four digit mark, make it like a 1000 episode success. We have been through a lot of ups and downs but now that we have reached the 400th episode, all sad things seem small and trivial, compared to this awesome moment of success. And all the sweat seems worth it!
Jennifer: I feel very fortunate, appreciated and of course, proud. It's genuinely a wonderful feeling to be part of such a loved show.
Do you feel your memory loss sequence is a good twist to the story?
Karan: Yes, I think it's a good one. The audience is looking for a change and this particular phase is loaded with comical elements and so I'm very sure all the viewers will enjoy it.
Which is you memorable episode of DMG?
Karan: The first episode where I got to meet new people and had the excitement of doing a new show surging in me.
People really love the chemistry between you and Jennifer.
Karan: Jennifer has been my good friend since the past five years. So it's only natural that the comfort level turns into great chemistry when we are coupled on-screen.
Jennifer: I thank the viewers for accepting us and for all their affection. I think my friendship with Karan is on a whole different level, because even before one of us would complete a sentence we know what the other person is gonna say and most of the time it's the same thing that we've been thinking all along!
What are the similarities and differences between Dr. Armaan and Karan?
Karan: Both are almost the same. The only difference is that Armaan has grey eyes and I have black.
Jennifer: When the show got launched and I saw Karan on TV, I called him up to say, this is such an easy role for you yaar. Isme acting karne ki zaroorat hi kya hai? (Where do you find the need to 'act' in this role?)
Karan, how does it feel when you have three different women portraying the role of your lover?
Its fun (Laughs). I got to meet three beautiful girls and have shared a great working experience with them.
Jennifer, you've been in saas-bahu serials, Shakalaka Boom Boom and now in DMG. Which has been your most enjoyable experience?
All the shows have been very different. In Shakalaka I was too young. I don't even remember half the things that happened in that show. Then came the saas-bahu serials and now this. DMG is very breezy, you can say its been easy on me.
You didn't answer me, which is your favorite of all?
Jennifer: I cant say that! They all have helped me grow. Altogether it's been a learning experience.
Will there be a fourth Riddhima?
Jennifer: Nope. There won't be a fourth Riddhima. The viewers will get to enjoy seeing us as a couple for a long time to come (smiles).
