Barun Sobti - Idol Bhai Contest

Khushi jokes on becoming a mechanic on lines of Manav and Raghav

I have reservations about doing intimate scenes: Barun Sobti

You have worked in a BPO for seven long years before you took to acting. How has your life changed since then?

I was working with a BPO in Delhi, but my friends insisted that I try my luck in acting as they predicted I have a great future in acting. I sent my pictures and one thing led to another. I am still rooted, but definitely my life has changed. Acting means more pressure. It's a rather consuming job where you are working for 30 days a month and 12 hours a day unlike a BPO where you get a long weekend off work. There is a lot of money riding on an actor and if the show doesn't work, the poor actor has to bear the brunt of it.

What kind of response do you get from your female fan base?
People are usually scared of me because of the arrogant character I play. They stare at me with fear that I might just scold them and often run away from me. A lot of times when I go out with my wife and when I'm not around, they ask her if it's fine to click pictures with me and if I won't scold them. My wife simply tells them that I'm the coolest guy around.
You have always been tight-lipped about your personal life. Do you fear losing out on your female fan following if you disclose your relationship status?
I have never hidden my marital status. I have been married for a year-and-a-half now to Pashmeen Manchanda, who also happens to be my first girlfriend.
Do you think the consummation scene in your show Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon was a little abrupt? Who would want to consummate the marriage in a situation where the couple is kidnapped and holed up in a dingy place?
I don't really know. The progression of a story depends on a lot of things. Everyone wanted to see the proximity between Arnav and Khushi and I feel that was the need of the hour. I just take it as my job.
Do you ever feel uncomfortable doing such scenes?
It's totally awkward to do such scenes. It's more difficult for a girl to do such a scene than
a male actor. But we managed to pull it off really well. We were simply playing our parts and had fun enacting the scene. However, I am not sure if I would incorporate such a scene if I were the producer.
Did you happen to see the consummation scene of Priya and Ram in Bade Achhe Laggte Hain? Are you comfortable locking lips on screen?
I think that was trending more than anything else. It became the toast of the town and was being talked about widely. It's got to do with the demand of the script and depends on the makers. But I have my reservations on doing intimate scenes and won't be comfortable going overboard.
How does your wife react to such bold scenes?
My wife knows that I love her too much so she is fine with the intimate scenes I do. She also knows that only if my role justifies such a scene will I do it. She understands my work as an actor.
Tell us a bit about the man behind the actor?
I am simple guy. I love my house and stay back home when I get time off shoots. I hardly party. I am not 19 anymore.

Who according to you is the most beautiful actress in television and the Bollywood industry?
Now, that's quite an uncomfortable question to answer. I would say all the girls I have worked with right from Neha Janpandit, Sanaya Irani and Daljeet Bhanot. In Bollywood, I like Sonali Bendre.
 Will you ever quit TV for Bollywood?
Acting matters to me and the medium is of least concern. If the next opportunity I get after this movie is of a promising television content, I will take it up. The work has to excite me.

IPKKND Romance - Hits & Misses – A Big No No

Star Plus’ hit show ‘Iss Pyar Ko Kya Naam Doon?’ which is one among the most viewed show by the masses on the channel, is apparently creating some befuddling situations in the recent times. When the viewers were anticipating a thorough romantic episode between Arnav & Khushi last Friday, 20th July 2012, they got to watch Anjali’s despair & discontentment for the love her brother Arnav has for his beloved wife Khushi.

It seems the gloominess in Anjali’s life has convinced her that everyone around her should live a life deprived of any love and happiness. Unknowingly, she is destroying the lives of the two Raizada brothers and the two Gupta sisters. It seems that Anjali is bent upon snatching away the happiness from her brother Arnav & his wife Khushi’s life, a couple who have seen hell & back just because of her (Anjali’s) husband Shyam Manohar Jha. Although, Anjali’s character was one of the most loved characters in the show earlier but recently the words uttered by Anjali for her brother Arnav  in the show though were out of insecurity, but were naive, trivial & uncalled for, which may lead to her character assassination in future if this tendency of story- telling is continued by the creative’s & the production house.

Moreover, the CVs are trying to feed the audience with the same kind of scenes again and again. The funny part of the romance between the leads Arnav & Khushi is that their romance always comes with an interruption. The interrupters can be a mere cell phone, a bunch of goons, one of the servants among the Prakash brothers or even the entire Raizada Family together. Whenever Arnav Khushi try to get a little intimate, their romance is literally killed and the viewer’s anticipated excitement is ruptured by these interrupters!!!This kind of interruptions knocking every single time the couple gets a little cosy is leaving behind a frustrated and perplexed audience. We are still waiting for the CVs to give us an uninterrupted Romantic Sequence between the “Married Couple” who are not at all treated as if they are ‘married’ by the family.

We can only hope that the coming week will provide the viewers with some quality romance between Arnav Singh Raizada & Khushi Kumari Gupta Singh Raizada without much interference & interruptions & we also hope the CV’s get back the old loving, caring Anjali. Although getting to see the ‘Old Anjali’ seems like a distant dream now. All we can hope is that Arnav- Khushi are given the due privacy which they deserve ‘Being The Married Couple That They Are’ in future.

Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon – Moment of the Day

Breaking News!!!!

Hospitals all over the world flooded with ArShi Fans!

I know the title sounds “TACKY” but what better than this to describe the state of millions of viewers and fans out there, who wouldn’t even blink their eyes, whose heart beat was erratic and who went totally drooling over this one moment that i have tried to capture in a picture but does not justify the act or the emotion associated with it…..

The Credit for the scene goes to the Writers more than the Actors. I agree its only the actor we see on screen, but had such a beautiful, simple and magical scene not been written to perfection, i doubt whether Barun (Arnav) and Sanaya (Khushi) would have been able to pull off such a flawless act.

For ordinary eyes it was just a Kiss…But the whole sequence had so much of depth and desire to it that even words would fail to describe the beauty of it.

For a man of the stature of Arnav Singh Raizada even the giving of a Gift was/is a “HUGE” step. Because the person in question here was Khushi he went ahead and did it. But she being KKGSR the tigress tells him off and makes him realize that the smallest gestures in life were all that she looked out for……She loved it that he was doing so much for her yet she could not accept it, any of it… for the fear that if she accepted it she would lose her heart to him all over again.

What Khushi did not expect, what she did not see coming was that here was her Prince Charming , her man who would go to any lengths for her. Keeping in mind the character of ASR the writers chose to make Arnav say ” Happy B’day Khushi” when she was asleep. He has never wished anyone in his life. Its something that he has never practiced in his entire life and probably the toughest job assigned to him yet here he was wishing her when she was sound asleep hoping that his message and his love would reach her.

Arnav did all this when Khushi was sound asleep, him turning and looking back if she sensed anything shows that he desperately wanted her to know what was in his heart.

A kiss on the forehead Symbolizes: His respect for her, that she is His Pride. It’s a Very gallant and protective way of saying “We’ll be together forever”. This is exactly what Arnav promises today. A lifetime full of togetherness. He knew the extent to which he had hurt her and his heart cried every time he saw Khushi for it reminds him of what he put her through and so wishes her a lifetime full of happiness. It showed how badly he wanted to take away all her sorrows but was unable to do so…..

Tears of happiness glistens in Khushi’s eyes on hearing Arnav’s Dua for her happiness and on seeing that he had placed her favorite Red Rose beside her. It moved her to see her Laad Governor go that extra mile for her. Yet she pretended to be asleep when he turned back so that he wouldn’t be aware that his love, his message had reached her heart for she feared of losing the same heart to him……AGAIN!!! Dhak Dhak!!!

Fan Fiction: Her Pregnancy by Hiruni, based on Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon

Chapter 5

It was a brightly beautiful morning when Kushi finally woke up to the early morning chirp of birds. Shielding her eyes from a dancing ray of sun shine adamantly streaking across her face, she inhaled a deep breath of fresh dewy air wafting in through the open French windows when her attention was instantly caught by the empty left side of the bed.

Arnav was already up.

So he must have carried her in after their star gazing session. Kushi smiled slightly as she fondly recalled the many times her husband made it his pivotal business to carry her all over the place. From mandirs to kitchen counters to broken down buildings she had lost count of the times he had carried her in his arms. Maybe it's her husband's free and easy way of keeping himself trim.

The sound of the running shower stopped and she knew her husband would be out any minute, drying his hair in a white towel, wearing his classic early morning hand-dog look. Arnav ji was never a morning person.

Right on cue the bath room door pulled open and Arnav appeared rubbing his hair vigorously, his customary scowl well in place.

"Kushi! you're up. How are you feeling?" his expressions instantly relaxed into a smile as he walked towards the bed and dropped a kiss on her head.

"I'm feeling fine Arnav ji" Kushi said a bit tipsily, feeling slightly intoxicated as she inhaling his after shave. She loved the smell of his aftershave. 

"Ok that's good. I'm running a bit late today'"

"Was it because you didn't get much sleep yesterday? I'm sorry  I made you sit outside and look at the sta.."

"Shut up Kushi"


"I said Shut up. Seriously what should I do with you? It was my idea in the first place if you hadn't forgotten"

Arnav sighed in frustration. Trust her to take the blame on herself for him running late. Wasn't there a moment when she let anyone else deal with their own problems?

"Now promise me you won't roam around the house and tire yourself. I wanted to stay home with you but I have urgent work stacked with the new take-over of the company."

"Koi baath nahi hai Arnav ji. I'll be fine. You really don't have to worry so much"

She made to get up from the bed when Arnav stopped her with his customary bark. "Where are you going?"

Kushi sighed patiently as she replied "To the bathroom Arnav ji. I need to get ready and go downstairs remember? I'm really hungry"

"No need. I already asked HP to bring up your breakfast"

Now it was time for Kushi to let out an irritable sigh. "Arnav ji I'm not going to stay in this room all day and every day. I want to go downstairs. If you're not going to take me down, rest assured I'm going by my own"

Arnav grimaced in exasperatedly. "Fine" he said shortly.

When Kushi had finally gotten ready to go downstairs Arnav advanced on her and without any further explanations lifted her up in one easy sweep and walked out of the room. Kushi sighed softly as she rested her head against his chest; the familiar sense of his protective aura engulfing her. 

When he had finally rested her on the sofa in the living room she noticed that naani, and Payla were both smiling behind their hands while Akaash and Anjali ginned without even trying to hide it.

"You know chotte it won't really hurt Kushi ji to walk down stairs once in a while"

"di, don't put ideas into her head" Arnav began hotly.

"Chotte Kushi bitiya can't stay inside a room whole day long. It's alright to get on about, walk around a little. She's not invalid or anything. She just needs a bit of rest."

"naani! it would strain her to much and.." Arnav started a long winding argument when he was fortunately interrupted by the ringing of the doorbell.

"Ah that must be Jeevika and her daughter-in-law. She told me she would come to pay a visit today"

Sure enough a few minutes later a very familiar looking woman accompanied by another younger woman by her side bid them Namaste as they sat down. Arnav got up hastily, not keen on joining the conversation. Akash too excused himself and went to join his bhai at the dining table to finish his breakfast.

Kushi felt a prickly sensation at the back of her neck. This was the same lady who made a spectacle at her ill-fated Muh dikhai rasam ceremony. A feeling of foreboding was quickly overtaking her and she was unable to shake it off.

The conversation flowed feely and companionably until,

"So Divyani, I hear that one of your daughters-in-law is expecting. Which one is that?"

Instantly the atmosphere became tense and cold. As everyone avoided each other's stares and waited until someone answered the question, Kushi felt sudden tears prickling at the corners of her eyes.

There was no point keeping mum.

Kushi's voice was trembling s she answered the question, her insides quaking as the words escaped her mouth "I, I was expecting"

"was? What do you mean 'was'?"

There was a single pause when everyone gathered around took a deep collective breath.

"I'm no longer pregnant" Kushi's voice cracked.

Arnav got up off the dining table, his chair flying away from him as he strode across the room, his gumption telling him that the conversation was going to intrude the forbidden lines. He had made strict directions on never to discuss the topic and now the old hag had successfully brought it up in front of the whole family and even worse, when Kushi's present.

"You had a miscarriage? Oh my god!" the woman gave a lamenting shriek as she regarded Kushi with an unsympathetic stare.

Kushi gulped, doing her level best to keep her face neutral as she tried hard to hide the fact her heart had been pierced open by the words. It had started to heal a fraction but the wound seemed to have freshly reopened with the reestablishment of her own words bounding upon her. She was no longer pregnant. Her own words seemed to make it final and clear; unmercifully truthful and cruelly accurate.

 Pain clenched her insides wringing out the little bit of relief she acquired after her traumatic loss.

The lady looked at her with a sardonic smile.

"Well don't be disheartened my child. You'll have plenty more chances' although I'm not surprised you had to go through something like this"

Kushi's head shot up to look at her. "wh..what? I don't understand what you mean?"

"What I mean is I know another girl who had to go though the same on her very first pregnancy and she had also run away and gotten married. All I'm saying is girls who disobey their elders' wishes have to suffer for their follies one way or another. What goes around comes around."

Kushi sat there as an icy chill penetrated her body.  So the can of worms has been reopened yet again. She had always known that particular piece of information regarding her marriage would follow her till she breathed her last breath. But she never expected it to be linked to a trauma she suffered in an enormity only a woman who lost a child would understand.

The elderly woman's words hit her like a tone of bricks. Her already bruised heart seemed to have opened up another much deeper wound which the time had healed but not in its true entirety. The freshly reopened cut oozed pain in magnitudes she never expected to reach.

After everything she went through, never in her wildest dreams did she expect to hear her painful experiences being interwoven together as if in a cleverly fitting jigsaw puzzle.

Kushi didn't even bother to wipe the tears now freely flowing down her cheeks'

And that was the undoing of Arnav. He had heard and he had watched dumfounded beyond belief as the woman brought up another forbidden subject within the household; their marriage.

What was the vile woman implying? That his wife deserved what happened to her? That it was expected for her to suffer a miscarriage?

And just as suddenly something else kicked inside him and he froze in mid action.

His wife, this innocent gentle woman had to go through this woman's venomous words due to him. Entirely due to him! He was the one at fault for dragging her to a temple and conducting an unfledged marriage. He was the one responsible for making it look as if they had eloped and gotten married. He was the one responsible for the numerous vile tongues his wife had to endure behind her back. He was the one responsible for demeaning her good-name, respectability and status in front of the society.

And yet his wife takes the full brunt of all his follies and that too without a single complaint or a single ounce of fault committed by her in actuality.

Before anyone could utter another word Kushi got up from her chair and bidding a polite Namaste, rushed up the stairs, not caring Arnav's earlier persuasions about forbidding her to take the stairs alone.

"Chotte'" naani began worriedly. Arnav shot a single stare of contempt at the woman who's words reeked inside him before running up the stairs three steps at a time to catch up with Kushi.

Kushi had already entered their room and closed the door. By the time he entered the room she was nowhere to be seen.

He walked around the bed and saw her sitting on the ground, her back resting on the poles of the bed and her face turned resolutely away from him. He slowly approached her. This was a time when he wished he was more a profound speaker. But duelling with words had never been his strong point.

"Kushi.." he gently touched her shoulder. He raked his mind desperately thinking of something comforting and appropriate to say to her.

"Please don't take to heart what that woman said'"

But before he could go any further Kushi had jumped up and was facing him; her eyes blazing, a thin line welted across her bottom lip from efforts to keep herself from crying.

"Arnav ji can I be on my own for a while?" her voice was cold and metallic as she looked at him with over brilliant eyes. With that she turned around and marched out to the poolside without a backward glance.

Arnav stood looking after her, bewildered, hurt beyond words and saw with a jolt that his worst fears were coming true.  She still hasn't forgiven him for his past crimes.

Real Time on Television - Sunday Express Article by Harneet Singh

Karan Goddwani on his share of ups and downs in the industry

Karan Goddwani, who came to the limelight as the lead in SAB TV’s Jugni Chali Jalandhar, is thankful to the Almighty for keeping him grounded and happy during his good as well as bad phases in life.

Speaking about the ups and downs he has faced in the industry, the actor tells, “I have seen a very bad phase where I had no job in hand for a long time. I can still recollect the days post Jugni Chali Jalandhar when I left for Spain to help out my family as they wanted to shift base to India. When I got back, things were very difficult for me. I was typecast as the petwala hero in Jugni, and I had to work on my physique to have a second innings on television. I got into good shape but things did not work in my favour. There was a time when I even contemplated to take up a new profession, as I was an engineer and a dancer also. And that is when Rang Badalti Odhani happened. Unfortunately, Star One went for a revamp and the show saw its end. That was again a very bad phase for me.”

After a pause, he adds, “Luckily, I bagged the role of NK in Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon (Star Plus) and people liked my character so much that I was called back on the show. I am very happy now and thankful to God.”

Karan is also seen essaying the role of Ranveer in Colors’ Chhal Sheh Aur Maat. However, the actor is looking forward to more exciting roles on television. “If things work out I might take up another show. Also, there has been a buzz about Chhal going off air.”

On juggling between two shows, the actor states, “It gets difficult to be a part of two shows, especially when the shows have no bank. There are times when I am shooting throughout the day for Iss Pyaar Ko Kys Naam Doon and at nights on the sets of Chhal. However, I am lucky to have EPs (Executive Producers) who are very co-operative. They adjust my time in such a way that it does not clash with the other show.”

We wish you all the very best for your future endeavours, Karan!!!

The Mills And Boon Hero: Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon’s Arnav Singh Raizada played by Barun Sobti

Interestingly, the internet is opening up as a new viewing option, especially for the younger generation. Star Plus’ romantic drama, Iss Pyar Ko Kya Naam Doon, is an online rage. The show’s lead actors, Barun Sobti and Sanaya Irani (who portray the characters of Arnav Singh Raizada and Khushi Kumari Gupta), enjoy cult status with fans terming themselves as “Arshians”. Gul Khan, producer of the show feels the show’s fan base proves the real reach of television. “The assumption is that housewives watch Indian soaps but the fan base of our show proves that youngsters are also tuning in. It is an entirely different population we are talking to but they don’t necessarily reflect on the TRP ratings, since youngsters watch the show whenever they are free. Its high time we took this generation into consideration when we develop content as this demograph is growing,” says Khan.

The Mills And Boon Hero: Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon’s Arnav Singh Raizada played by Barun Sobti

As ASR, he is the Bluetooth-plugged-English-speaking millionaire. For lady love Khushi, he is Arnavji. He’s rude, brooding and arrogant and believes “Main kabhi galat nahin hota (I am never wrong).”

Producer Gul Khan says, “Arnav is full of himself and thinks he’s god’s gift to humanity. He is extremely flawed. He clicks because for all the character’s arrogance, his eyes have that innocence which lets him get away with anything.” No wonder, girls love him. The episode in which Barun went shirtless got 1,23,219 YouTube hits. Sobti plays down his star appeal. “The character is well fleshed out. Just like we are all made up of our moods, Arnav too goes through these emotional phases, so let’s not judge him.”


Arnav Singh Raizada's Idea of Romantic Getaway

With Arnav from Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon now wearing his heart on his sleeve, he shares, “If I have to plan a romantic getaway with my partner I would prefer Singapore. The Lion City offers some of the finest hotels, spas and shopping malls in the world. I would love to try the authentic cuisine of the country. My idea of romantic getaway is very different; it involves lots of traveling and exploring the city. If I visit Singapore with my partner I would take her to Sentosa Island, Singapore Flyer and take a romantic walk at the Orchard Rd.

Anjali's insecure may separate Arnav Khushi

The perfect combination of passion and love has developed between the married couples Arnav and Khushi in Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon (IPKKND) on Star Plus.

It was last seen that Khushi challenged Arnav by telling him when she will self-come into his arms then she will accept him as her husband.

Arnav finally won the challenge where Khushi hugs him out of the fear. Khushi also accepted Arnav as her husband.

Arnav made a romantic environment but their romance was interrupted by the family members. Arnav’s sister Anjali thought that Arnav told lies to her because he wanted to spend time with Khushi.

Anjali refused to talk with Arnav saying that he has changed a lot getting married. He is giving more importance to Khushi rather than his sister.

Arnav feels guilty and never ever thought that his sister, Anjali will misunderstand him.

Things may happen to Arnav to keep a distance from Khushi to make Anjali happy.

Khushi is leaving Rayzada house in Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon!

Predicting the tracks of daily soaps is something enjoyed by all the ardent viewers of the respective shows! But we are sure that none of the daily soaps on Indian television must be this much unpredictable as Star Plus’ Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon!

Right from the beginning, the CVs have never let the predictions made by the fans stand true. Be it the revelation of Shyam (Abhaas Mehta), clearance of misunderstanding between Khushi (Sanaya Irani) and Arnav (Barun Sobti), and above all the exposure of Shyam before the whole family, everything came up in quite an unusual manner; something which was surely not thought of.

After watching Arnav’s obstinance for making Khushi accept him as her husband, all had expected them to share some lovey-dovey moments together. But the outcome was certainly a disaster, instead of the romance between the leads one got to see the family turmoil. Furthermore, the way Anjali’s (Daljeet Bhanot) character has been shaping up all this while, it forces one to believe how highly self-centered the lady is. Though we understand that she has indeed suffered a big loss but under all circumstances a sane person is expected to abide by the just and refute the one who sides injustice.

However, in Anjali’s case, it’s just the reverse of it. Now that Shyam is not by her side, she doesn’t even want others around to stay happy. She is highly upset with her Chote paying more attention to Khushi instead of her. She is not able to cope with the thought that Khushi has changed Arnav as a person and has made him mellow down.

This insecurity of hers is soon going to create a threat for Arnav and Khushi. In the coming episodes one will see Khushi leaving the Rayzada house and going back to Gupta house.

We just can’t predict as to what the CVs have planned next but it is really unfair to see that a selfless soul like Khushi happens to be at the receiving end always!
