Wedding Sutra- Dark Knight

All the Groom's Men- Wedding Sutra Feature

Says Danny: "If I'm dressing up for a wedding, I'll make sure I don't outsmart the groom. First and foremost for me is comfort. If its comfortable and I look good, then I'm buying it. I don't really have any favorite brand or store." His favorite memory as a groom's man. "Getting drunk at the reception party and doing some 'out of this world' bhangra dancing. Well I was under the influence so perhaps my bhangra wasn't as good as I am making it out to be". 

Advice he's most likely to give his best friend who's getting married. "You are lucky and blessed that in this new phase you have someone with you. Relax, breathe and go and get married!"

Raj Baddhan in Conversation With @TeamBARUN

Without further ado presenting our conversation with everyone's favourite RJ and all round great guy Raj Baddhan!

1. What got you started in the media industry?

I studied media including radio, journalism and TV and continued it ever since working at various newspapers and radio stations.

2. What has been the most interesting celebrity you have met?
Definitely, the legend Amitabh Bachchan - he’s been in Leicester a number of times.

3. Most memorable experience from being an RJ at Sabras?
Most memorable has got to be my first day when I started in March 2005, then when I left in 2007 to move to London. But more recently my interviews with TV stars have been fantastic! Most memorable TV star interview I've carried out has been Barun Sobti and Sanaya Irani - the response of my interviews with these two have been out of this world! In my time on radio, I never experienced such a loyal fanbase for both these stars and its amazing to have.

4. Since interviewing Barun Sobti and Sanaya Irani last year, listening to you has become a stable part of most fan's daily routine, what is your most memorable interaction with the fans?
Sabras Radio’s online listener-ship has grown  a few folds since my TV star interviews - they have been a huge hit - and I may like to add that Barun and Sanaya’s interviews contribute big time to the growth. There’s a handful of loyal listeners that tune in everyday and some that dip in and out whenever there are any Barun or Sanaya references on the show. Two of my most loyal listeners Lamia and Anna setting up a fan group (Team Raj) on Twitter for me was so touching - very memorable for me. But from these Twitter followers, I have made lots of friends too - thank you to all of you - you know who you are!!

5. Who can forget your conversation with Barun Sobti in Punjabi! What did you make of our guy?
Who can forget! Firstly, I thought Barun was going to be a difficult interviewee because he was one of the types that would give short answers and would need to push him to elaborate but when as the interview went on, he opened up and yes spoke in Punjabi and had such a laugh. Then calling him again to put rumours at rest of ‘IPKKND’ ending (which it did eventually) was interesting again. Oh yes and meeting him at Star Parivaar Live in Birmingham was a laugh.

6. What is next for you?
We’re working on some new exciting things at Sabras Radio so that's interesting. Also for my online media and entertainment website I’ll be getting more TV news inputs with more exclusive star interviews and news, which you will learn off me first! Yes, I love my exclusives!!

7. As we have seen you are loved by many fans and tweeted often by them? We thing we saw a couple of rishtas in there too Raj, any message you would like to share with them?
Hahaha! You’re crazy! I don't take such rishtas seriously - its so much fun though. Without sounding like i’m bragging, used to get the most funniest of proposals on the radio before this Twitter and Facebook dhamaka.

8. Have you ever been recognized on the street?

The good job being on the radio is that your face is not visible and hardly recognized but what with the uptake of social media and webcams etc, radio presenting isn't how it used to be. Radio jocks are treated in similar ways to TV personalities and thus can be recognized. I have been recognized a few times - mainly when I open my mouth but also at events, etc.

9. Barun Sobti was featured in People Magazine, did you see it? What do you think of the rising Bollywood Star he is fast becoming?
Barun is a MASSIVE name anyway and for him to do Bollywood and appear in such magazines is not surprising. Its only onwards and upwards for Barun now!

10. What did you make of Sanaya Irani's amazing performance at the Indian Telly Awards?

Didn't see it. : (

11. What is on your Sky + /DVR?
At the moment, I have ‘SaraswatiChandra’ on series link with many episodes I need to catch up on. ‘EastEnders’ is also on there and a few horror films that I love from the English movie channels.

12. What did you make of SPL in Nov 2012?
Very well organized and brilliant event for viewers to interact with their favourite stars. It was dominated by Barun and Sanaya -I kind of felt bad for the other stars that were there who were overshadowed by the two starlets. In fact, even when I was backstage, it was more a media frenzy over Barun and Sanaya than the other stars there.

13. Farhan Khan has been replaced in ChhanChann, What are your thoughts on his replacement Anuj Sachdeva?

When I spoke to Sanaya a few weeks into the launch of ‘ChhanChan’, I knew something was brewing between Sanaya and Farhan. I’m not totally surprised this has happened but something like this should've been experimented by the channel and production house much earlier rather than changing the lead at this stage. The chemistry between Anuj and Sanaya is looking much better and Sanaya seems much more comfortable too - which will definitely entice viewers.

14. Can we expect any new interviews with Barun Sobti in the future?

Of course. I have been promised much more updates from Barun this year and an interview this summer. Also like my special feature on ‘IPKKND’ 2nd anniversary, i’ll be doing some other things to treat fans.

15. What you like most about Barun Sobti?
His laid back persona despite him the most sought after actors on Indian television.

16. What you like most about Sanaya Iranii?
I said this to her in my two interviews with her - the way she talks - very straight and direct. Love that characteristic in a person.

17. If your life was made into a movie who would you like to play you?
English - Ryan Reynolds - Love his playful and yet serious image.
Hindi - Akshay Kumar - Punjabi characteristics like me.

18. Complete the sentence!
I can't live without? My mobile phone.
If I had an hour free I would? Sleep.
If I was a Superhero I would be? Superman (Man Of Steel!!!).
My Bollywood Name would be? Kyle (love that name).

19. Let’s conclude off with a few favorites!
Color: Grey.
Movie: Silsila.
TV Show: EastEnders.
Book: Don't really have one.
Time of Day: Afternoons.
 Holiday Destinations:  New York.

20. An quote on TeamBARUN?
My only source for everything Barun Sobti related! One stop for all BS fans! Congrats on the new site and for your support always! 

21. What about Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon returns and the twist?
Yup, IPKKND is returning in UK with old episodes being re-run. However with a twist that Star Plus is working on - they will announce this. 

22. Do you have any news on Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon DVD?
I think the DVDs are not happening due to costs involved and Star TV like Rajan Singh said are working on alternative plan.

23. Will you watch Main Aur Mr. Right on big screen?
I watch new films mainly on the big screen and I don't see why I wouldn't watch MAMR there. Would love to go with a Barun Sobti fan  just to see his/her reaction every-time he comes on screen! Now that would be a film of its own. :)

Thank you Raj for taking time out to answer our questions and a thank you for all you have done for all the fans. You rock!

Our Honourable Guests speak about Barun Sobti and TeamBARUN at the Website Launch Twitter Event

 Hello & congrats to the whole TeamBARUN followers! Fantastic news & well done on such a great achievement!

 - Raj Baddhan
 Station Manager & presenter at Sabras Radio


All the best TeamBARUN for their website launch. Thank you and God bless you all.

- Team MediaQue Entertainment


Barun Sobti one man who has an immense fan following which is very inspiring. He is the definition of a heartthrob, a man who has a craze and totally deserves it! Knowing his background, its really inspiring to know how his journey has been from being nothing to the star of Sobtians lives!

- Vikash Pattni


I fell in love with Barun Sobti's character as ASR in IPKKND and he made me wish I was Sanaya Irani for the longest time. I got to meet him in February 2013 when he came down to Nairobi, Kenya and he was so humble and shy, which was amazing because you'd think someone from the Bollywood industry would be otherwise.

TeamBARUN are absolutely awesome. Love how much they're working toward giving Barun Sobti courage and creating a massive fan base for him and for his career. Wishing TeamBARUN the best and you've always got my support as a fan as well!

 Thanks a bunch!

I can't think of a guy who has more ardent fans than Barun Sobti, but the strangest thing is that he never seems to realize just how much people love him! He still seems normal despite all the craziness that happens around him, and that's pretty remarkable.

The Sobtians are amongst the most enthusiastic bunch of fans I've ever seen, and TeamBARUN does a great job of keeping everyone bound together. Great job you guys, and all the best for the website!

Thanks and all the best! xx.

TeamBARUN the one team totally dedicated to love Barun Sobti. All the tiniest details about Barun Sobti are here with this awesome team. Keep up the good work and good luck for the website. Barun Sobti is surely going to be proud of you guys. :)

- Khyati Gandhi


Let me be honest here. I never saw an episode of Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon. I didn't know Arnav Singh Raizada existed. But then I happened to be doing a cover story on 'The Changing Face of Fiction Shows on Indian TV' for my newspaper and as part of research I tried to catch up on the shows on youtube. That's how I got to know about IPKKND. I saw a few scenes and I was hooked! The intensity and chemistry of  Arnav & Khushi--- the way the scenes were written, the way Barun Sobti & Sanaya Irani performed them was absolutely delightful. Barun Sobti especially caught my attention because he played ASR with a lot of style. He added that brooding quality to him--- very Mills & Boon-ish. There was a certain edginess to his performance. His interpretation was very modern-- the way he wore the suits, the way he walked and looked at the girl. He handled the angry & ruthless ASR and the flirty & romantic Arnav ji with equal ease. Sure enough, the role proved Barun Sobti's acting credentials but I'm sure a lot of it was also because of Sanaya Irani and the writers and directors. Barun Sobti has shown that he has the talent and the fan following but the tough bit starts now. He'll have to choose wisely so that he can live upto not just  the expectations of his fans but  also to the promise he has shown. Here's hoping Barun Sobti makes the right choices.

TeamBARUN, You guys are the best cheerleaders an actor can ask for! Your dedication and passion for all things Barun Sobti is well documented on twitter. The way you all sprung into action when Barun Sobti was leaving IPKKND was quite something. Hope 'the object of your affection' appreciates you and all the efforts you make in the name of his love! 

Wish you guys all the best!

- Harneet Singh

Barun Sobti's popularity is growing day by day and his fans love him for his genuinity. I am eagerly waiting to see him in his debut film and wish him luck for kick-starting his career in Bollywood. I have been a regular IPKKND viewer and enjoyed Sarun's chemistry and Barun Sobti's performance. All the best for his future endeavours.

TeamBARUN, You all are doing a great job by providing Barun Sobti's update to his fans. Launching a website adds a new feather to your cap. All best for your new website and may you all keep providing the Sobtians the regular new of Barun Sobti and passing on their love to him (Barun Sobti). 
Load of love and luck to TeamBARUN.

from The Telegraph.


 Barun Sobti is Unequivocally the “King of Expressions”….  in no time he has won hearts of millions and continue to conquer new challenges one after the other…. Post huge success on TV (IPPKND), MeDians are now all excited about his debut launch in Bollwood.

Barun Sobti’s acting and on screen chemistry with his co-actor, Sanaya Irani, was able to draw a lot of attention and he gained unequalled fame and astounding success as Arnav. His performance on the show won him various awards, esteem among the critics and has made him a household name. MeDians wish #HOTWA best of luck … It is rare to find talent and looks combined with such warm and gregarious personality…. Barun Sobti, MeDians bow at your kind nature and warm nature…. You truly are a Rockstar!!

TeamBARUN, words are less to describe your passion, enthusiasm, dedication, and discipline which you brings in worshipping the KING of Expression – None other than Mr Barun Sobti!... TeamBARUN’s work is known in the industry and often shared on

MeDian are truly grateful and thankful for TeamBARUN’s immaculate work and passion…. Best of luck for continued great work.
