Ghar Aajaa Mahi Vay
Though Star Plus hosted the winning couple’s wedding, but they want to get back home for a traditional wedding.tv Updated: Oct 13, 2008 14:40 IST
The winner of Aajaa Mahi Vay, Pravin Ingale and his fianceé Kiran Sutwane, claims he didn’t expect to make it to the top three. The show saw real-life jodis showcasing their dancing skills.. Star Plus hosted the winning couple’s wedding.
Ingale who is an Urdu theatre actor, says he isn’t a dancer at all. “I guess Kiran’s classical training helped us,” he says.
The channel did organise a grand shaadi for them but the couple want to get back home to Pune for a traditional wedding.
Most of their relatives couldn’t make it for the finale which aired last night.
So were their parents aware of their relationship or did they get to know through the show?
Ingale reveals that Sutwane’s grandmother initially didn’t approve. But that’s been sorted now. He is happy that the
channel and producers ousted a fake couple from the show.
“That would have been unfair to the other jodis,” says Ingale, adding that the show wasn’t just about dancing but about “love.”
Ingale’s only grouse is that the show wasn’t publicised enough. It could have done a lot better but for its marketing.
Change of judge
But he was glad Saroj Khan took over as one of the judges from Apara Mehta. The viewers reportedly had misgivings about the marking system.. which were quelled once Khan arrived.
The newlywed wouldn’t mind working on TV but maintains that theatre is more satisfying. “Television means more money.. and let’s face it.. living in Mumbai isn’t cheap,” he says.
