-First break in film: Delhi Heights with Jimmy Shergil and Neha Dhupia. He played the character called Vicky.
After this night, life took a change for her. She wasn't the same girl now. Her heart was beating in a way it never did before. Every color of life was looking more beautiful to her'even though it was the same old color. Being on his side, gave her a feeling of completeness, of companionship. She was floating in the sea of emotions. A sweet battle was going on in her heart and mind'.when one day, her heart won this battle and she realized that she was in love. Yes!!! She loved him'she loved Samrat. He wasn't just a friend for her now'he was much more than a friend. He meant life to her'he meant world to her. She was relieved of all the confusion and she knew, that "dil ne jo chaha, toh hua yeh'.saari hadon ke paar hai, kuch aur nahin yeh PYAR hai".
Love is beautiful, and for Gunjan it meant her life. Whenever he was close to her, her heart and mind refused to think of anything else. She was loving this feeling of love. At every step, he made her feel special. He cared for her like no one had ever done before. He had a solution to each of her problems. There was always a question surrounding her heart and mind that Samrat is the handsome hunk of the college, and she is a very ordinary and simple girl'.so, is she worthy of Samrat? Samrat can get any girl he wants, he can get the best girl'so, why will he fall for her'will he ever love her? Still, as they say, no one has any control on emotions and love'and neither did Gunjan have it. He was with her and this is what all she wanted. No conditions, expectations in return, because love deosn't come with any condition. It is above all conditionalities.
Love is not only beautiful, but it can be very painful too. And a small scratch in love hurts much more than an otherwise big wound. Maybe, because the scratch is not just superficial. it goes straight to the heart and this is where the real pain then resides. Same happened with Gunjan. Just as she was feeling the sheer happiness of love, Sheena came in their lives. The modern babe soon made her way to being Samrat's friend, and Gunjan saw them getting close to each other. It was painful for her'very painful'but she never complained. Everyday she greeted him with a smile, and never let the tears of her heart come to her eyes. When she was alone, tears were her companions. More than her own pain, and more than anything else, Gunjan was happy for Samrat. She knew that he and Sheena made a good couple and were a great match. She considered herself no where near them. She knew Sheena wouldn't like their friendship, so, she starting distancing herself from Samrat. He could sense some change in Gunjan's behavior. He knew that something was bothering her and he always ensured to make her feel happy.
The rehearsals for the College Annual Play were at their peak. Gunjan was the incharge of the music'.and Samrat, Sheena were playing one of the lead couple's. It was a very tough time for Gunjan. Seeing Samrat and Sheena so close to each other, made her feel as if everything was slipping out of her hand. Enacting a scene of the play to show Sheena the feel of the scene, Gunjan confessed her love'.but it wasn't as Gunjan'the words were of the character she was enacting, but the emotions'the feel was of her own self, her own heart. She was relieved and was talking to herself, when Sheena maybe heard her. Sheena, who already had doubts, was now very much sure that Gunjan loved Samrat.
Samrat and Sheena were getting closer n closer. Samrat told Gunjan that he likes Sheena and he wants to take their relationship forward. Poor Gunjan!!! She was already broken'and with this jolt, her heart was shattered into tiny winy pieces. Sheena indicated Gunjan that she doesn't approve of the strong friendship between Samrat and her, and this further worsened the situation for Gunjan. The only thing that kept her up was that Samrat was happy with Sheena, and she was happy for him. Her own life'..was it even a life now??!!! When Samrat was with her, she used to feel his presence, his closeness. This feeling was her gift'a gift of love by him. Samrat made her feel special at every step. He was still her best friend'not only friend, he told her that "we are soulmates". And yes, they were soulmates'they completed each other'they were the two halves of one whole. Though these halves were apparently separate, but their souls were one.
Sheena, initially, posed to be a sweet girl...but gradually she started showing her true colors. On their date at her house, Sheena told Samrat, that if he wants to take their relationship ahead, he has to break all ties with Gunjan. "Has she gone crazy?...this can never happen'.I will never let this happen'I can leave anyone and everyone, but I can never ever leave Gunjan". Samrat bluntly refused and walked off. Sheena had asked him for a thing, he can never even imagine in his wildest dreams. Gunjan and him shared a bond, which no one can understand'but what bond'.what bond was this?? At this time, Samrat had no answer.
He was heart broken too. Gunjan was trying to make things normal for her, for him, for them (Samrat and Sheena), but Samrat was too affected to think of anything else. He wasn't able to look into Gunjan's eyes'as the warmth of her eyes, gave him an unbearable pain, thinking, how can he possibly leave her. He can and will never let this happen. He was firm in his decision
On the day of the play, Gunjan decided to tell Samrat about her decision, about which she was also very firm. She didn't ask him, didn't request him, but told him, that he has to leave her, as this is what Sheena wants and this is what is good for them (Samrat and Sheena). Samrat's world went upside down again. Gunjan can't be serious, she cannot do this, were his thoughts and a rock steady "NO" was his reply to Gunjan. After a lot of convincing and arguments, Gunjan gave her verdict, in the form of throwing the flower, that was given to her by Samrat, and that had always held a special place in their friendship. It was all over!!! Sheena succeeded in her mission and she stood in between the two best friends. She was the clear winner, whereas, Samrat and Gunjan, lost everything. Was this the fate of their relationship, their bond, their friendship, her love and his ___________ (the blank was still empty to be filled by him).
Again the same situation'again the same resolution'."I cannot leave Gunjan alone'I will bring the smile back on her face'I will make her talk again'make her my friend again". He didn't leave any stone unturned, but could not shake Gunjan's determination. Gunjan had done all this for his happiness, so how could she back out herself now. Her own pain didn't matter to her. What all mattered was that he should be happy, and his happiness was in being with Sheena.
Sheena's plans didn't end here. She knew that sooner or later Samrat and Gunjan will get back together, so, she decided to make a fool proof plan, with the help of RV (Samrat's biggest enemy at Excel). But as they say, "whatever happens, happens for good".
As per her new plan, she invited everyone (including Gunjan) at Samrat's farm house to celebrate the success of the College Annual Play. Another reason, she claimed, was that she had no problems with Samrat and Gunjan being friends again.
The two friends met again and with a small hug they let go of everything that had happened. Their faces were glowing with the biggest smiles. It was another beautiful day for them. Sheena was very confident of her plan, but she didn't know that anything which is done with wrong intentions, never succeeds. Her plan failed miserably. She accused Gunjan of throwing her in the pool, and thus, tried to convince Samrat that Gunjan did all this because she loves him and cannot see Sheena and him together. But she was totally mistaken. Samrat could question himself, but he could never question Gunjan's intentions. He knew that Gunjan can never even think of such a thing, leave apart doing it. He blasted Sheena and holding Gunjan's hand, he gave his verdict to Sheena and that was to get out from his life'.. from their lives.
Sheena's plan spoiled the whole atmosphere and mood there. Gunjan, knew that Sheena was right in just one thing, and that was regarding Gunjan's love for Samrat'and this made her feel terrible, so she asked Samrat to leave her alone for some time.
Problems for Samrat and Gunjan did not end here. But like before, this problem was also paved way for groW*H in their relationship. RV had made a plan to take revenge from Samrat. He made him drink a lot and when he was out of his senses, RV did an accident himself and ran from the spot, making Samrat the culprit. Samrat landed in jail for something he had not done. Gunjan was shattered again'.still, she knew that she had to be strong for Samrat. In this time too, she was his strength, his pillar of support. He cried on her shoulder, she gave him the confidence that everything will be fine, She held his hand to comfort him. In the jail, what all Samrat could think was "Gunjan, Gunjan and Gunjan". Sheena's words echoed in his mind. The flashbacks of the time spent with Gunjan captured his thoughts. His heart was beating for Gunjan'his mind was thinking of Gunjan. Though Samrat was physically in jail, yet this gave him the opportunity to think and this freed his heart and mind of the self imposed imprisonment regarding his feelings for Gunjan. Self imposed imprisonment, in a sense that Samrat was always scared of falling in love with Gunjan. Reason--- he knew that Gunjan was like a star in the sky and he was an ordinary creature on the ground. Gunjan did not deserve a guy like him. He was not worthy of her. Sounds familiar'.isn't it so??!!! Yessss!!! Because, these are somewhat the same things Gunjan was apprehensive about when she was realizing her love for Samrat. Thus, just like in her case'love was beyond all these things'.and so, was Samrat also walking on that path now??
His friends had organized a get together party in the College. Everything was back to normal, but nothing was back to normal for him. The whole aura was very different, or was it some change within him, in his heart that made everything look very different. Wherever he saw, he saw just one face, HER face'with open eyes, he saw Gunjan everywhere'when he closed his eyes, he saw Gunjan. What was happening to him?? He was very unlike him throughout the evening. He was quiet, he was lost in his thoughts, wherever he saw her, his eyes froze on her'and when he didn't see her, his eyes were looking for her. Gunjan was noticing the change in him. She could feel that Samrat was acting very differently, but she herself was swinging between emotions, fighting with her own self, so, she did not go up to him.
Samrat wanted answers to his questions'he wanted to breathe'..he wanted to feel his emotions'and he wanted to listen to what his heart was saying. Inside the room it was very noisy and he wasn't able to hear his heart and soul, so, he came out, searching for some answer, hint, clue, indication. But before coming out, he grabbed Gunjan's fallen bracelet that he gifted to her as her secret friend prior to the Velentine's ball. With his eyes closed, he saw her coming towards him, dressed in white. He asked her to come close to him'very close to him'.and he gave her a gentle kiss on her neck. Was it the answer to his every question? Was SHE the answer to his every question?? Yesssss!!! She was his answer. He opened his eyes, and realized it was his imagination. Just then, he saw her again coming towards him. This time, it was actually her'walking towards him, asking for her bracelet. "How can I gave her this friendship bracelet back, when I have lost this friendship myself'.this is not friendship'this is'this is..LOVE!!! I love you, Chashmish"'and his world lit up. The darkness around him vanished and everything started glowing. His heart had found its companion'his souls had found its companion'he found his companion. His heart again sang, "Khuda jaaney ke mein fida hun, Khuda jaaney mein mit gaya'.Khuda jaaney yeh kyon hua hai, keh bun gaye ho tum merey khuda.." Before she came in his life, he was unaware of the feeling of love. She gave him love, she gave him the smile of love, the tears of love, every feel of love'.and each of this feel was sooo sooo special. That is why he said, "Tum se dil ki baatein seekhein, tum se hi yeh raahein seekhein'Tum pe mur ke mein toh ji gaya".
It was love. He was running away from it, denying it, avoiding it'but love somehow finds its way. He was in a new world. He had Gunjan in his life, as his friend, as his companion, as his love, as his world. Life seemed to be complete'he found a direction'he found a reason to live. The boy, who used to fear commitments, was loving it now. His whole shift was towards Gunjan and he wanted to give her every happiness in life, and make every moment of her life, their life, a memorable one. But before anything else, he had to confess to her. He wanted to tell what she meant to him, he wanted to tell her that she was indeed his soulmate. Since, it was Guru Samrat, confessing his love'he had to make it big, and special for his lady love, his Chashmish.
Gunjan was also in a turmoil. She had also decided to confess to Samrat about her feeling and tell him how much she loved him. The emotions had piled up within her for a long time now, and she had to share her emotions, her feelings with the boy, who had completely changed her world. And she succeeded!!! She told him that her heart beats only for him., she told him that he had captured her heart, mind and soul, she told him that she was madly in love with him. But who can fight with destiny?? She gave voice to her heart, but this voice didn't reach him. And to worsen things, in order to handle an adverse situation, he had to say that he and Gunjan were just friends to their fellow students who were raising questions on their relationship.
What a day it turned out to be?! So much of planning' so many hopes, but everything ended in the most unpredictable and unbelievable manner. The day that could have seen the meeting of two lovers, turned out to be a day of their separation. It ended with a note of just being friends'.why can't life be simple??!!!
Samrat and Gunjan, both were left numb, shattered and alone. Time was as if had stopped moving'and so was life. They were being played in the hands of destiny. But this could not be their end. There love was strong enough to fight every battle, be it with their own selves.
Before Samrat could do anything, he came to know that Gunjan had left for Morena.......
