Have you watched
Kahaani Hamaaray Mahabharat Ki?
Yes, quite religiously. I love the way it’s been conceived. It looks modern, the story telling is fast-paced. The TRP rating for the show have been above 2.5 which is excellent for the channel.
But there have been mixed reactions.
See, that cannot be avoided. Some people were stumped when they saw the first episode. It began with Draupadi’s
. I guess the modern look has invited mixed reactions. Someone said that rajas then wore mukuts.
In retrospect, was it worth doing a film like
One Two Three?
I agree the film didn’t do well, critics didn’t like it either. But everything was shot as I was in the script.. which is rare nowadays..
Golmaal Returns, Life Partner
and Apoorva Lakhia’s next.
Mission Istaanbulwas produced by Shobhaa and Ekta Kapoor. How come there was no role for you?

C Kkompanyseems like a vague gangster comedy.. is it a sequel to
Kya Kool Hain Hum?
No it’s not. It’s a fun film about three middle class men who live in the same building. They all have financial problems. They play a prank which lands them in trouble. Sachin Yardi who wrote
has directed this movie.
It seems Ekta threw all the promotional material of
CKkompanyout of the window and you had a fight over this.
See, it wasn’t a fight. I liked certain promotional designs. Ekta didn’t. We disagreed but we didn’t have slug-out. It was a brother-sister disagreement.
Are you consciously doing comedies?
wasn’t a comedy,
weren’t comedies. Even
isn’t a slapstick comedy. It’s shot on real locations, I’m playing a reporter here. In
One Two Three
, I played a wannabe gangster. It’s not that comedies don’t have strong characters.
How is it possible not to have a girlfriend after being in the limelight for so long?
Oh, wherever I go, I do come across girls who adore me. I’m still single.. the last time I was in love was when I was in college. Right now, work takes up most of my day. But I do hope to fall in love soon.
