What lies ahead

Barun Sobti answers pertinent questions on the last day of the shoot of his hit show

Barun Sobti became a household name due to his successful show Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon, which has been on air for more than a year. He wooed the audience playing the arrogant, rich tycoon Arnav Singh Raizada to perfection. Also, his chemistry with co-star Sanaya Irani was loved by viewers. On the last day of his shoot, Barun looks back on his decision to quit the show, and talks about plans for the future.

How are you feeling while shooting on your last day ?
I am looking forward as well as looking back at the time gone by. All is good and there's nothing to complain about.

Are there any mixed feelings now that you have quit the show?
I am numb. The good thing is that I am shooting my scenes alone, without any of my co-stars, or else it would have been weird. I have had a good time being part of the show and cherish every moment. I will be carrying a lot of memories back with me.

When the channel was persuading you to stay back, did you have any second thoughts?
Not really. Once I took the decision, I stuck to it. Today is my last day of shoot. Later the team will go to Birmingham (UK) for a channel event.

Are you aware of the mass hysteria your exit has caused?  Fans have been writing letters to the channel and making phone calls asking you to stay back. They have also insinuated that since you are quitting due to problems with producer Gul Khan, the channel should replace the production house.?
Well, I have got numerous fan mails asking me about the update on the show. But let me clarify that there is no problem between Gul Khan and me. In fact, she has been a great producer and a great support too. This is the biggest show of my career and I am grateful for the opportunity it has given me. As for my fans, I thank them for all their love and support and hope they continue to show this love in my future endeavours.

What plans for the future?
As of now, my film Main Aur Mr Right, which should release soon. I am also looking forward to a break and spending time with family.
