People still call me Saloni: Rajashree Thakur Vaidya

Amrita Mulchandani, TNN | May 26, 2013, 12.00 AM IST

Rajashree Thakur Vaidya famously known as 'Saloni' talks about her comeback on TV and the changes in the industry in a chat with TOI.

What kept you away from the small screen for so long?
I got married just a year back and so I was giving time to my family. Working round the clock in TV soaps don't give us enough time to spend with our close people. I did everything I could not do earlier like socialising and indulging in my hobbies. Being a kathak dancer, I got back to practice as I had lost touch with it.

Most people call you Saloni from Saat Phere, did you take a sabbatical just to break that image?
I never thought of taking up a show because it will be a safe decision or not. I also never thought if an epic show will work for me or not. As a kid I would love to read about historical characters and history was my favourite subject. I loved reading about Jodha AkbarShivaji and their likes. I took up Bharat Ka Veer Putra - Maharana Pratap now, just because of the characters and show concept. Though I feel it is important to break an image that is created in the mind of audiences, but after Saat Phere nothing interesting came my way. People yet call me Saloni and many don't event know my real name. But I am sure with my new character Maharani Jayawanta Bai Songara, people will call me by this name and love me the same.

Do you consider yourself lucky to get work in today's time where most producers prefer fresh talent over the established artists?
The times have gone when only new people got work in the industry. People like Sakshi (Tanwar), Mona (Singh) are there in prominent shows. Today, audiences want to see good talent. I am not saying that newcomers are not talented, but audiences want to see actors who they have loved to see in the past. After my debut show, I had decided to return only if I got something prominent on small screen.

Do you think television has changed since the time you left it last?
Producers are now in an experimenting mode. Gone are the days when only saas-bahu shows worked. Audiences are now accepting new story ideas and concepts. People are tired of watching the same cat fight in saas-bahu sagas. Historical and epic shows are working a lot — my favourite one is Devon Ke Dev... Mahadev. These kind of shows are not just entertaining, but can also be watched by children. These shows also educate people about our history. This is a new change welcomed by the audiences.

Tarun Khanna to replace Manish to play Ravan?

Neha Maheshwri, TNN | May 27, 2013, 01.19 PM IST

After wrapping the Jallandhar-Mahadev track in Nikhil Sinha's Devon Ke Dev Mahadev, the makers will introduce the storyline of Ramayan in the show. 

The casting for the same is on in full swing. We hear, actor Tarun Khanna has been approached to play the role of Ravan, a character that was originally played by Manish Wadhva.

Apparently, Manish was introduced long back, but the track didn't work then. With the Ramayan chapter coming up, the character of Ravan becomes pivotal.

Since Manish has taken up other projects, the makers have approached Tarun to play the part. The actor didn't revert to our text message.

Mahadev to play a pivotal role in Ramayan sequence!

Ramayan in Mahadev to showcase the importance of all the devas...


Monday, May 27, 2013 | 3:54:12 PM IST (+05:30 GMT)   |  Copyright: India-Forums.com / TellyBuzz  |  Comments 9 Comments  |  811 Views

Devo Ke Dev. Mahadev on Life OK which talks about the lives of Shiv and Parvati and is one the most popular shows will have a new chapter to unfold. The Ramayan sequence in Mahadev will educate the masses as even Lord Shiva will play a pivotal role in the lives of Lord Ram and Sita.

Our source informs us that, "Although the show is about Shiv (Mohit Raina) and Parvati (Sonarika Bharodia) they have incorporated an off track Ramayan. There is a deep sense to it when Lord Shiva plays a pivotal role in the lives of Lord Ram and Lord Sita... with the role of Mahadev seen as an essential one during Lord Sita's abduction.

All the other lords like Lord Vishnu (Jiten Lalwani) will also play a major part in the entire sequence of Ramayan."

When contacted Jiten Lalwani, he confirmed the news, "Yes, we will soon have a Ramayan track which will be a continuation of the Mahadev track and how all the devas play a crucial role in Ramayan. It's said that it might be a month long track with all the important sequences in the show."

The casting for Ramayan is on and the tentative on-air date of the Ramayan track in Mahadev will be from mid June 2013.

Mohit Raina finds TV female dominated

Mohit Raina describes television as a female dominated space and says it is difficult for male artists to get central roles. He considers himself lucky to play the lead role of Lord Shiva in "Devon ka Dev... Mahadev".

Mohit Raina describes television as a female dominated space and says it is difficult for male artists to get central roles. He considers himself lucky to play the lead role of Lord Shiva in "Devon ka Dev. Mahadev".

He refers to his character in the show as "larger than life" and calls it a "lifetime opportunity".

"TV being a female dominated industry, you don't get to play a lot of central roles. The story of Lord Shiva is there and will go on and on. It is a larger than life character and the platform is huge," Mohit told IANS.

"As an actor, you don't get much choice in TV. I was lucky to get this. I have played 25-30 characters in the show. You have to be lucky to be able to play so many characters," he added.

Although his popularity has soared after his stint as Lord Shiva on the show, Mohit feels stardom in movies is a different thing.

"Films have a different world all together. People watch you for three hours and you become a brand for them. In TV, you are close to their hearts everyday. In films, they might forget you in three weeks. They might see you in ads and commercials. In TV, you don't give them a chance to forget you. But yes, the film industry is a bigger platform," he said.

Talking about "Mahadev", Raina said he never anticipated to get the amount of love that he has received.

"When we started the project, we never thought we will get so much appreciation and love. As an actor, you only look for love, and it has come in abundance. When I started, I never thought that it would be accepted in such a way. I am just short of words," he said.

The six-pack god

By Ankit Ajmera, Mumbai Mirror | May 30, 2013, 05.21 AM IST

The six-pack god


Heavenly bodies: Mohit Raina, TV Actor, 30

The actor shares how he transformed from a 107-kg teenager to Indian TV's muscular god.

Playing god isn't easy. Ask Mohit Raina, who plays Lord Shiva in Devon Ke Dev...Mahadev. Despite a 15-hour work schedule every day, he takes time out for his body, which the role demands. "Considering that I am playing Mahadev, I need to look fit all the time. To achieve this, I workout six days a week," he says.

He wasn't always the muscled god that he is now. When he was still in school, Raina, who is from Jammu, weighed 107 kg. "I love eating and would eat a lot back then," he says. Burning calories was an alien phrase. "Gyms were not in fashion then. A brisk walk or a game of badminton was my idea of fitness," he adds. The transformation came when Raina decided to participate in the 2005 Grasim Mr India.

From flab to fab
I always wanted to become an actor. I was told that the contest would provide me a platform to launch my acting career. That prompted me to shed weight. I started running and working out. I turned vegetarian. By the time I participated in the contest, a year later, I had lost 29 kilos. I didn't have six pack abs or a shapely chest, but I made it to the top five. It's only now that I have learnt to sculpt my body. Even now, if I indulge in too many carbs and fatty foods, my body is quick to absorb and store them as fat.

I start my day at 5.45 am. I work out for at least an hour. However, the last couple of weeks have been hectic. I am playing the role of Shiva and his lookalike Jalandhara and have been working round the clock. I was skipping workouts. To fix that, I got a make-shift gym set up on the set.

My diet
I plan my meals according to my body weight. Right now I weigh 81 kilos. I consume three grams of proteins per kilo of my body weight. I maintain a 60:40 proteins-carbs ratio in my diet.

I start my day with a glass of warm water. I eat a sweet potato before my workouts and later have a protein shake.

Breakfast is 50 grams of oatmeal. I have a bowl of fruits a couple of hours later. Lunch is pulses, chicken, three multigrain chapattis and lots of green vegetables. In the evening, I have a couple of egg sandwiches. Dinner is soup and salad.

Listen to your body
I believe nobody but you is a better judge of what works for your body. I have discovered my body over a period of time and I train accordingly. However, I wouldn't advise others to follow my regimen blindly. My workout schedule is:

MONDAYS: 20-minute run followed by 45 minutes of exercises for the chest and biceps

TUESDAYS: One-hour run followed by a 20-minute workout for calves

WEDNESDAYS: Back exercises with lots of pull-ups and push-ups, plus a 20-minute run

THURSDAYS: One-hour run

FRIDAYS: 20 minutes of running followed by workout for shoulders and triceps

SATURDAYS: I work on my legs with 20 minutes of running

Note: When I say run, I don't mean the treadmill. I mean the park or the beach. Also, I don't like listening to music while working out. It interferes with my concentration.

Bulking up
To play Jalandhara, I gained two kgs of muscle in three weeks. I increased my carb intake. I doubled the chapattis and trebled the oatmeal I consumed. I drank an extra glass of protein shake in the evening.

I crave...
Rajma chawal is my all-time favourite dish. I am not a rice person, but if I cheat it's with rajma chawal. The only sweet dish I like is kaju katli. I can finish packets.

I admire...
Sylvester Stallone. He has inspired me to a great deal.

My fitness advice
We live stressful lives and to beat that some kind of physical activity is necessary. Even a walk will do.
