and Apara Mehta
, the two veterans of the industry come face to face in Sony's Maa Exchange
!! Apara who lives in her cozy home comprising of only three ladies ends up managing a joint family of eight members!!! This happens when Sarita Berry, Sudesh's wife and Apara Mehta
get swapped in tomorrow's episode of the show..
Tellybuzz had a chat with Sudesh Berry
on his experience in the show, and the time he spent with Apara Mehta
in his house..
Excerpts!!!How was the experience in Maa Exchange?
just say that the whole experience was a sweet labour pain where I was
put under a house arrest for eight days. What I expected was not what I
got through the show.What were your expectations when you took up the show?
have to make clear that I am a low profile and a very intuitive actor.
When the channel approached me with the show, I thought they are going
to show what Sudesh Berry
really is and what he is in his real life. But
when the show really started, I was a little taken aback because what I
expected was not really what turned out to be. The director said that
in these eight days I just have to be myself which I felt was not really
expected and possible. Then finally I took it as a game and played
along with it.What was the reason you took up the show?
told you I am a low profile actor and have not done any reality shows till
date. When the offer came to me I thought this might be the chance to
show to the viewers who I really am. But then it is a fact that thirty
years of Sudesh Berry
cannot be shows in just eight days.Was it difficult to adjust?
am born and brought up in a situation where I was taken care by my
mother very well wherein I did not even need to take up my plates after I
eat. And I live in an area where various film fraternities have been
residing. When the show began, I was not allowed to use my cell phone
also because Apara did not want me to speak to my wife. But then I had
already said that I will not make the call since there are five cameras
in the house.How did your family react with Apara Mehta being in your house?
My mom was really happy and they enjoyed it. What was the most difficult thing to adjust with Apara Mehta?
and I are coming from the same genre and she is a self made woman. She
has her own priorities and I had made it clear that she is not a
housewife but a working woman. I agree and respect for how she has taken
care of her mother and her child.What were the changes that Apara tried to bring which you felt was needed?
There was nothing that I could point out.In the promos you were seen using abusive language; wouldn't that create a wrong impression of yours?
are all marketing techniques of the channel that we normally see even
for other products. For example, for an ad of a handbag, the product
pictured are bare legs. Its all promotion techniques.What were the matters that you discussed with Apara in the face to face episode?
have discussed a lot many things and in the face to face discussion,
the matter was a bit personal for Apara as the issues were regarding her
husband. But then I had also told her that she is not completely a
house maker or a house wife as she is a working woman.What were the similarities that you felt between Apara and your wife, Sarita?
I have not found any similarities, but at the same time I must say that Apara is completely a daring woman.How does Sarita feel being in the show?
has completely enjoyed it and it was sort of a picnic for her where she
went for driving and had great fun enjoying her freedom.Apara had said that the women in your house hold do not work and have a mentality that women are the bearers?
women in my household do not work like we do, but they do have their
recreational activities which they do from the house. They do not go out
and work.Reporter and Author: Saranya Valsarajan
