He’s gone!

He came like the wind, made us fall in love with him and his onscreen character and finally today Barun Sobti the man who made Arnav Singh Raizada an ICONIC television character finally bid goodbye to the show.

Well Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon is not going to be the same anymore now that Barun has bid adieu to the show. He breathed life into a character that was initially just on paper, making it one of the most popular, huge and magnificent characters ever, one that can never be erased from the memories of millions of viewers all over the globe.

Today on his last day of shoot our TellyTadka reporter Sheetal got a chance to meet the Actor who made ASR possible. TT brings you a small excerpt about the happenings on the sets and Barun’s answers to some casually asked question apart from the “Exclusive Video Interview”

Location: IPK Sets (Raizada Manion), Kandiwali (West)

Clad in a black 3 Piece Suit which is the basic essential ASR look, Barun Sobti was shooting (Close-up Shots) with Sanaya’s Body Double for an upcoming sequence. Completely in character Barun as ASR is trying hard to make Khushi that she would have to do things she has never done before for the Mrs. India Pageant as it was a contest requirement.

While this was the scenario infront of the Camera, of screen Barun is the total opposite of ASR. He is a full on “Mastikhor” and one of the most Jovial person on the sets. He was hanging out with everybody be it the director-Lalit Mohan or the cinematographer- Hrishikesh Gandhi, the production team, the crew members in short everybody.

When rehearsing or when in between shots Barun was seen either singing or munching on some snacks with his team members of course. Barun was really enjoying every bit of his last day of shoot, his last day on the sets of IPK and was seen having a ball. Also whenever he got time he sat down to check out the gifts, cards, Message albums etc sent to him.

On asking Barun what he felt about today being the last day of his shoot he smiled and said he does not know what it was that he actually fell, that he could not put it in words, but since it was his last day he wanted to enjoy every moment on the sets with the people who he has been associated with for the past 1 and ½ year, who is more like a family. He said he would miss his co-stars and all the masti they used to have on the sets. Barun chose not to comment anything about the new entry Viraf Patel when asked.

It’s kinda impossible to replace ASR because of the stature to which it was built, but it’s impossible to show ASR dead or vanished or kidnapped (again) which paves way for a really interesting and intriguing question as to what will be the fate of ASR but more on that later.

TellyTadka will always try and keep in touch with Barun Sobti whether or not he is a part of the show. We love him and the hard work and dedication he has put into make ASR an iconic character and will continue to do so.

Stay connected as we bring you an exclusive video interview of the phenomenal Barun Sobti soon. Keep an eye out for this in our TT Video Segment.
