Originally posted by *dewdrop~pearl*Hey BB, again a wonderful episode! I read in yesterday's thread that you guys are planning some visual treats for us as well . So we might be in store for some dejavu I guess . And thank God Khushi is well, now we will keep getting lots of visual treats !
Now that its question-answer time, even I have some questions ...
1) What is the real reason for MR's departure? Is it like what MR is saying, his Bollywood dreams and that he himself wanted to leave, or is it Pranjal and Colors who forced him to leave? The real reason still seems like a mystery to us . So did he leave at his will, or was he forced?
2) Was the face revelation of Nakku actually planned to take place after their marriage itself, or was it supposed to happen much before that?
Shreya's questions were like a full-toss ball for a free hit and now you tried one yorker and one doosra on me. I am going to let it go past my stumps... Let me try doing that without giving the ball any bat or pad to save myself from LBW (in marathi, we have a joke with LBW= labunach bara waatto/waatte: dur se accha lagta/lagti hai forget that, its random) Coming to Q2 first: The face revelation was planned but of course when where and how was as the story developed and thre was no set plan about where and how, but yes, it was to happen after the wedding because Dutta had to marry Naku "the way he knew her", with all her "ugliness" that the world joked about. However, the debate that definitely occurred back then was who would do her parda faash! Some "brilliant" (pls note my quote marks and get the hint) people wanted it to be the vamp doing it but some who thought of the story as a bit "more" than that trivial benakaabi fought and stuck to the Naku-must-do-it-herself-no-matter-what stand and so it went ahead that way (thankfully) but of course things are not planned right in the beginning and as the story moved ahead so did the thoughts. The whole parentage track had to have been slightly deeper, but unfortunately for some inexplicable reasons it was kind of left half-baked and never concluded. The face revelation arrived right after that.
Now the Yorker i.e. Q1 (which has three parts) I am going to try, but I am not sure if i can get my point across to u to ur satisfaction.
What is the real reason for MR's departure? (I wish reasons were seasons and we could get over them and move on to another one like nothing happened, but alas!)
Is it like what MR is saying, his Bollywood dreams and that he himself wanted to leave, or is it Pranjal and Colors who forced him to leave?
I have answered this bit a few times before to friends who mailed me. Now that you ask me right here (almost cornering the meek me), I cannot let it go unanswered. (so smart of u ). But, since it's a yorker, my own shot selection has to be that much more accurate right? So here it is, I am going to play this ball with a simple question and i know that because you do think, you'll decipher my answer out of it. There were a lot of rumors about why he was "shown the door", i even read one distasteful bit about "the channel has finally had its way" back then. Now let me clear two things categorically: he never made undue financial demands, there were no tantrums. Those who asked me previously and i did reply to them as back as in April, I had mentioned that Mishal had no issues with Playtime and vice-versa. They are still friends and will be. The technical staff and everyone else on the team do miss working him because he brought this entirely refreshing feel to the whole work environment every single morning. Ok that apart, coming back... So did he leave on his own will or was he forced to leave. I believe every decision we make in life has multiple facets... we make a decision over a problem with a plan in mind. So, there were multiple reasons behind his decision but my simple question, which may give you ur answer is this:
'If an actor (protagonist) decides to move on from his project and if the story has potential and is strong and if the makers (channel included) believe firmly that their story has potential, would anything (under the big vast holy sky) stop them from going ahead with the story, bringing in a replacement (howsoever it be; may be even knowing that this cannot be that) and carrying on work as usual? Now, instead of that, if they go abruptly go ahead to experiment a new road and turn around at a junction that is completely not where they were originally supposed to go, what does that tell you?'
Mind you, scripts are written just two days before at times, but not tracks. Tracks are decided more in advance unless of course an unforeseen obstacle comes in the way. And in this case, nothing was unforeseen.
The real reason still seems like a mystery to us . So did he leave at his will, or was he forced?
Sometimes, some incidents, some things just become a catalyst to a tiny little thought that has just fleetingly passed the mind. And when that becomes a big push, people go ahead and act upon that thought/feeling.
So, now howzzaattt, Umpire Aparna, what do u call my shot? Did i save myself or is it an LBW??? Do let me know because I was batting on 99 not out you know!
