Abeer that's Gaurav Khanna performing the role of a son from a Brahmin family in the COLORS on-going serial 'Yeh Pyaar Na Hoga Kam', has been viewed till date as a guy fighting to change the thoughts of his orthodox family, and at times expressing secret love to his neighborhood girl Leher (Yami Gautam) tagged as Kayasth's ladki. The actor will now be seen enacting a scene where he is drunk.
He also conveyed that due to the above reasons he was quite skeptical performing this scene, and so was also given the elective to have a peg before the shoot to get into the mood of a drunkard. But Gaurav Khanna preferred to trust his acting instincts than the peg and dared to give the shot without even smelling liquor. When asked he stated, "Acting is something that comes from within and is not dependent on any substitutes to give it the feel of reality".
Though this scene was shot four to five days back, it had been enacted so well by Gaurav that he not only received endless applause on the day of the shoot, but has still been receiving acknowledgment calls from people of different departments of the show, including the technicians. Gaurav now hopes that he receives an appreciation of equal magnitude from the viewers too.
Before signing off, Gaurav conveyed a social message to the viewers, "Please don't drink and drive".
