AT DELHI'S
SHOT SPOT

Divya Pal I TNN

am-packed venue, peo-
ple craning their necks
to get a glimpse of the
cast and the show's unit en-
suring the actors are at a safe
distance from the masses.
The shoot of the show "Rish-
ton Se Badi Pratha" in Delhi
was in no way an easy task.
However, the show's director
managed to get the desired
result from his team, thanks
to the unit who made sure
nothing disrupted the shoot.
And as the lead actors con-
fess, their visit to the city
made for a great experience.
DELHI TRIGGERS A RUSH
OF MEMORIES: When we
caught up with Faisal Raza
Khan, an alumnus of Kirori
Mal College, he couldn't stop
raving about Delhi Universi-
ty "Unlike others, I was nev-
.
er in two minds about taking
up acting as a career option.
If I feel content in my profes-
sional life that's because I
have built my career in the
field I'm good at," he says.
But, if an actor is what he
wanted to be then why choose
History as a subject during
graduation? "If you know this
subject, you can incorporate
several historical references
to the script of your play or
show. And you needn't work
hard to score well in History
."
Faisal is proud of the fact that
he also managed to rag his
seniors on his first day in
KMC. Did he spare the jun-
iors then? "It is funny but true
that Alok Tripathi, my junior

J

Vishal Karwal and Shalini Chandran

whom I had ragged, happened
to be the creative director of
one of my shows. Luckily
,
Alok has no hard feelings."
Shalini Chandran, who
had lived as a tenant in Saket
for four years, had interest-
ing anecdotes to share. "If
my brother wasn't working
in Delhi, life as a tenant
would have been scary she
,"
says. Shalini's decision to
work as a quality verifier
even as she was busy comp-
leting graduation through
correspondence, shocked her
brother. "My parents were
pensioners so I knew how im-
portant it was for me to fend
for myself. It was difficult to
get my brother's nod." Life
took a U-turn when acting
beckoned.
"Within
two
months of completing Barry
John's acting classes, I got
"Kahani Ghar Ghar Ki" and
"Hamari Betiyoon Ka Vi-
vaah". Shalini had also been
offered a role in "Badmaash
Company", but that didn't
work out. "I was offered the
role of Shahid's sister but it
got chopped. The next time I
get a similar offer, I know
how to go about it," she said.
WHAT'S IN STORE FOR
ME? Vishal Karwal, the male
lead, had a whale of a time –
gulping down golgappas,
playing the flute and yes, get-
ting valuable inputs from a
jyotshi. "The jyotshi told me
I'm likely to get a doting wife
and a government job. The
former is great, but the idea
of doing a government job
doesn't interest me much."
