We have very special someone and that is Hiten Tejwani.
Pehele to aap ye bataye ki jitney bhi aapne role play kiye hai aaj tak unme se aap ka
Hiten: Sab se favorite role tha mera Pratham. Mujhe maja aaya usko karne mein aur usme bahut saare shades the. Basically I just loved that character. He was a little gray not totally gray and lots of situation and lots of drama woh karne me bahut maja aaya. That was the serial where I met my wife and got married, that was my favorite role.
Kaun kaun si similarities hai jo aap Karan ke saath share karte hai in the drama serial Kyun Ki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahoo Thi?
Hiten: Karan ke saath similarities yeh hai ki mai aur Karan sensitive hai. Jaise Karan sensitive hai, emotional hai, he is expressive and he is very caring and apne family ko support karna aur uska family hi uske liye sab kuch hai.
Aur Pratham ke baarein mein kya khayal hai aap ka?
Hiten: Pratham ka jo ego level tha jo 10 out of 10 tha but Hiten ka jo ego level hai woh 10 out of 10 nahi hai. Ego level to thoda sab mein hona chahiye. Hiten ka jo ego level tha woh 10 me 5 rakhiye but Pratham was 10 out of 10. Yug is a easy going guy and usko koi farak nahi padta jisko apna dost manega uske liye kuch bhi karlega otherwise usko koi farak nahi padta.
According to you Karan is best as a son or husband?
Hiten: Karan I think dono hi hai. I think beta to is ke liye bolunga ki agar aap log dekh hi rahe hai ki kuch bhi ho jaye maa ke liye hamesha khada rehta hai, support karta hai jo ki har bete ko karna chahiye kyun ki maa ne to mujhe paida nahi kiya, lekin unhone mujhe woh sab kuch diya hai jo jis maa ne paida kiya usne nahi diya. Meri maa actually Mandira hai, usne mujhe woh pyaar, siksha jo hai woh nahi di jo ek maa deti hai apne bete ko aur woh ye mujhe Tulsi maa se mil raha hai to ofcourse woh apne maa ko bahut pyaar karta hai. Aur husband bhi hai jo apni wife se bahut pyaar karta hai woh to majburi thi ki Bhumi ke liye maa ki jarurat hai is liye usne shadi ki dusari warna aise halat mai to shadi bhi nahi kar sakta koi.
Hiten: I am ok with everybody. I talk much,so I am talking with everybody now. Serial mein jo hamara group hai Damini, Ganga, Gautam, Shahil we all get along very well.
Who according to you can be the best beta of Tulsi Karan, Gautam, Shahil ya phir Harsh?
Hiten: Ye to bahut hi muskil sawal hai. Karan to us ka beta hai nahi woh to aisa hai ki woh use manti hai Karan bhi use apni maa manta hai.
Agar aap Tulsi hote to aap kis ko apna beta mante?
Hiten: I am sure Karan ko hi manta because jis tarah se woh pariwar ke liye jo kuch karta hai, sacrifice karta hai, aage bhi abhi I don’t know waha pe kitna peeche hai but yah ape abhi aage ek aur muskil ghadi aa rahi hai Karan ke liye where he again sacrifices for the family. He is always there for the family, family comes 1st for him.
Beside Gauri who is your favorite co-star and your favorite male co-star?
Hiten: Favorite co-artist as I told you that we go along with everybody and there is nothing like she is my favorite and I will sit with her or I will talk to her. Bhumi jo hamari choti bachi ka role play kar rahi hai. She is so cute. Thoda sa bhi masti majak karta hoon toh aaj kal uske saath karta hoon. Male mein sab ke saath yeh hai ki I am well to everybody. I am ok with everybody. Hamara aisa hota hai na ki saare log pure scene ke liye hote nahi hai, for example there is a comic scene where the whole family is there toh woh karke adhe log nikal jate hai baki mera scene hota hai with Bhumi, Taniya, Gautam.
Lekin jab drama ban raha hota hai, to drama mein to aisa hi lagta hai na ki you people never go away from each other, lekin woh scenen jab ban rahe hote hai to uske baad hi ek banda waha to ek banda yaha to kya us samay aap logo mein chemistry hoti hai, matlab ki jitna ki screen.?
Hiten: Bahar jate hai, agar sab ko khabar ho to we try to go together or we meet at a place.
What is your favorite thing to do when you are not at work?
Hiten: I try to watch movies. I love watching action movies to koi bhi action movies le aata

Was it love at 1st sight?
Hiten: It was a kind of love at 1st sight from my side but then the 1st time when I saw her I didn’t knew who she is we were going together ek advertisement ke liye but pata nahi tha ki hum ek dusare ke sath hi kaam karne wale hai. I just saw her uske baad hum Hyderabad jane wale the waha ja ke unhone hamara introduction kar waya aur uske baad me woh add karke, add ke dauran hamari koi baat cheet nahi hui, hie hello that much. Add karke hum Bombay aa gaye we were doing Kutumb and this girl was opposite me mujhe laga ki is she the same girl, you know the world is so small.
What are the 3 qualities in you that you would say that it will make you unique individual?
Hiten: I have a good sense of humor, yeh pura jo hai feedback meri wife mujhe deti hai us hisab se mai tumhe bata raha hu ki meere quality ye hai. Honesty comes 1st to me and of course my loved ones, my family hai to woh pehele hai.I am honest to everybody not to you, not family members, to everybody whom I don’t know also probably. I am not bad like job hi hai woh mai samne bolunga.
Hiten: There was one day I just asked her out and we went for a drive. We both love beaches and all so I took her by the sea we were sitting there and chatting and it was a perfect full moon and it was the lovely atmosphere we came out the car and talk about each other and moon like light hoti hai na. I had some most memorable moment.

You will be coming to movies?
Hiten: Movies mai interest hai but I want to do the movie which don’t remain for only Friday, one day kyun ki decision ek din mai ho jata hai. Hamara aesa hai ki agar mai serial me etna kar raha hu to mera etna naam hai, ye sab chod ke mai koi aesi film sign karta hu jisme mere fans hi mujhe puche ge why did you do that. So I won’t do a film. Ek film mai kuch aese honi chaheye ki wakay mai kuch ho karne ke leye aur jise karne ke baad mere fans ko lage ki ha kuch alag kiya hai aur bahut acha kiya hai.
Can the fans contact you koi tarika hai, the fans are wondering about your email address?

Hiten: I am trying to concentrate on direction. I want to do films of course agar koi achi film mile but ek saal aur jaane dunga and probably mujhe 5 saal ho jayege is industry mein to jo bhi thoda chances hai to I don’t know whom to assist but I will assist the director. It is not that I will leave acting totally but to know more I have to assist somebody for a while for my plan of direction.
If you are to do some kind of bold scene with Gauri will you both do it on screen?
Hiten: No we will try to avoid it.We will just do it in a very sudden way because there are many scenes when there is a kiss or just a hug. Many times I had bold scenes with Taniya also we give it in a very nice way.The image what we have, hamara image jo hai usko khatam kyun karte hai. Ekdam lovely couple jo hum hai, thodi si takrar, thodi si nok jhok chalti rahe jaise aam jindagi mein hoti hai.
Do you watch any serial apart from your own?
Hiten: No I don’t watch my own serials also. Jab tak aata hoon tab tak sab khatam ho jaatein hai.
Aap ka favorite food kya hai?
Hiten: I love fish. Selected fish khata hoon one is called Bombay Duck it is a kind of fish.
How is it to marry to somebody who has the same profession as you. koi rukawate hote
Hiten: Ye sab se bara phayeda hai ki you are married to someone who is in the same profession kyunki aap dono mein bahut achi understanding ho jaati hai aap ek doosre ke kaam ko ache se samajh paate ho and character potray karney mein aasan ho jaata hai. I remember once I had to hug Taniya in a scene and Nandini was also there when the scene got over Nandini called me and said that you know what you didn’t hug her properly. The kind of role we are doing it is just the part of job.
Would you like that she comes in the movies as well or she have any plan about that?
Hiten: Aisa nahi hai ki maine usse roka hai ki you never do a film. If you like it do it, I am there with you. Go ahead not a problem actually. Only thing is that you should be convinced. Agar koi role karna hai, koi character play karna hai agar aap convinced hai ki main kar sakti hoon aur mai karungi to you are free to move ahead with it.
I love the relation between Karan and Tulsi do you have that kind of relation with your mom?
Hiten: Exactally thats what one should have with your mom. It is very natural and it is very easy to go for it jaise mera relationship hai Gauri ke saath woh screen mein automatically aata hai, hum logo ko kuch karna hi nahi padta hai.Waisa hi mera meri mom ke saath hai jis tarah ki sharartein main mom ke saath karta hu. Tulsi maa ke saath bhi waise hi shararat karta hoon to in return woh meri kaan kheech leti hai.
What is your favorite gift from a friend?
Hiten: Meri ek fan hai Maham from Pakistan she has gifted me a lovely leather jacket. How she managed to do it is a great part.Jacket bhi directly nahi mili mujhe. She gave it to somebody and that person gave it to me. Mai woh hi sochta hoon ki agar mujhe kisi ko photograph coriour karna hota hai to woh mera Monday ki jagah Wednesday ko hota hai.But she gifted it to me even before my birthday so i think thats my favourite gift ever got by a fan.
