I am not trying to create gossip or anything--but watching all the KKh43 videos, AJK spl, spontaneous jandA moments--has really made me wonder if Mona And AA undergo some kind of personality change when they are with each other. Others have also pointed this out, but this time i wanted to go into detail.
The "happy baby" promo of JJKN has JandA leaping all over the house like a couple of kids. Even on KKH#43, they were behaving like a couple of teenagers out on their first date.
With AA it is drastic and instantly visible. I mean, just watch him with his "better half" (sorry but i really think AA is the MUCH better half of SandA)--he is formal, inhibited, usually gives some sort of cheesy smile to the camera, and has this "i wanna go home right now" look on his face.If i did not watch JJKN and only knew about AA from SandA's public appearances, i would conclude that he is rather a dull and mousy personality--in short, a JKG.
But the moment he is on the JJKN sets, or with MS--watch the KKH43 episode or the AJK--he sudddenly becomes a schoolboy. The shyness that is a part of his basic nature is still there, but he seems to open up more, relax, even tries to be naughty(who can forget MandA's scintillating "kiss" in the doorway of Kudkudiya house!)
I remember during the Popkorn 100th episode int of MandA, they were being rather stiff and careful as if they knew a hundred eyes were eagerly watching them, but the moment MS said, "Ok, let's go and cut the cake" and prodded AA on the shoulder, he was galvanised into action. All of a sudden his facial expresion changed and he became more lively, more enthusiatic.
With Mona, it is a little more subtle. The "public persona" she has developed over the last few months is that of a witty, intelligent, confident, but also diplomatic and politically correct celebrity. But i also sense that at the core she is rather naive and quite vulnerable---rather like the "Jassi" in her. And this Jassi peeks out when she is with Armaan sir aka AA, or even when she is just talking about him and he is not even around.
Like, in the KKH#43 episode,MandA were really having a good time, and Mona was giving all the witty and smart answers; yet she was blushing THROUGHOUT the episode, and even her fidgety hand movements when she looked at AA gave away a lot.
Or in the AJK spl, when she was sitting with gaurav and joking around, she said "When i first started shooting with Armaan...." and immediately she blushed and her face softened.
And when she is talking about AA her guard is down and she lets things slip out---like in "Just Pooja" last year, she got talking about the fun they had on the sets and how she and "Armaan sir" would go off into these "dirty giggles" (those were her exact words--now what did she mean by those?), and then some time later she again brought him into the picture by talking about how she would prepare for JandA scenes by listening to the songs of Kal ho na ho and coming in a romantic mood to the sets. Even Pooja seemed a little intigued and immediately asked , "and did that actually make you fall in love?" and mona got rather confused while answering.
It is like Tina pointed out during the Goa days--when Jassi is with Nandu, Raghav or Purab, she becomes a lady in charge, giving orders; but when she is with Armaan she becomes a blushing, shy, very feminine and vulnerable girl-woman. I think what applies to Jassi here also apllies a lot to Mona.
All this blushing, fidgeting, fumbling, melting---these things are so jassi-like. And AA brings them out in Mona. No wonder Mona has an identity crisis--she wants to be the cool, professional Mona Singh but just can't help being Jassi, as long as AA is around!
