But it was a good time to catch up with her and chat about many other things. Don’t miss the video below. Raki speaks after a very long time. It’s a very fascinating conversation.
You are in the news and you know why. A few hours ago you posted a post denying that you were told to play Dayaben (she was previously played by Disha Vakani) in “Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah” …
I got a call from the media, but I don’t know where this rumor came from.
But when the report first started to surface, you didn’t deny it …
The day before yesterday, I learned about these reports and thought that this rumor would disappear, but it has been increasing steadily.
Have you seen the show?
Please tell me one person who hasn’t done it yet. It’s as symbolic as the “ham punch” I did when I was young.
How long have you seen it?
Kaafidekhahai. I love watching comedy.
Is it very difficult to step into Dayaben’s shoes?
Comedy comes naturally, and of course it’s rewarding, but it’s not that difficult.
Her typical Guju accent …
I need to educate myself about it. We are actors who enter the character. Like recently, I made a Bhojpuri character. But what do you know! There are many people in my building called Gujus.
Do you want to do it your way?
You need to take a lot of nuances from her style and include mine. I have to make a good merger. If I do it entirely in my own way, it can be difficult for the audience to get involved with it.
Have you met Disha Vakani?
No, I have never met her in my life. It’s sad that I didn’t meet.
Are you making friends with someone at “TMKOC”?
No, no one in the show knows.
I’ve met you in several movies and TV shows, but there are on and off. Where were you
I’ve been working lately, but not every day. I have a mother and I like to spend time with her. I started working at the age of 14, and a few years ago I realized that my family didn’t have time.
There are two types of breaks. One is that recent jobs aren’t as good as they were 20 years ago, and the other is that senior actors aren’t paid as much as many actors today. I’m looking for a much cheaper rate …
I disagree with the first part of your question. I think there are still many good jobs coming. It all depends on what you add to it and what you bring to the table. If you don’t add to it, it’s about the second part of your question, yes, the rewards aren’t as good as they should be, but if you love your craft, I’ll keep you away from it I don’t think there is.
You said in one of your previous interviews that you took this break because you wanted to get over the dissolution of your marriage …
When my marriage went wrong, I wasn’t feeling well, so I needed some time to get back. Any kind of farewell is painful.
Are you in touch with your ex-husband Rajiv Tandon?
No, not at all.
Are you in touch with Rabina Tandon (former sister-in-law)?
Everyone. In such a situation, I think we need to move on.
According to sources, you have found a new man in your life …
I have been dating this person for 7 years. A common friend introduced us. Both he and I have a past. We decided later to decide whether to get married along the way. Now we were actually supposed to get married last year, but my dad died. Well, I’m getting married soon.
And can you tell me his name?
Indeed, it is the fateful Karachiwara.
When will you marry Fareed?
Probably December 2022, but the month has not been decided. It may be a month or two later. It’s been a year since my father died.
More about him?
He is a builder and the only egg supplier in Mumbai. He has a great farmhouse in Pune. I am blessed to have such a wonderful person in my life, especially after my life has become so messy. He is a wonderful person.
So you must be spending a lot of time in Pune?
yes. He has a house in Mumbai, so he often comes to Mumbai, especially on weekends.
Will life after marriage be Pune or Mumbai?
It’s Mumbai, but it’s a shuttle.
What happened to your dad all of a sudden? If I wasn’t wrong he was just 71/72 …
Yes, he was 72 years old. Nothing happened, he returned from his job one day. He always said, “Main hurry, hurry, seetimarkenikaljaunga.”
What else is happening in your life?
Pretty Shinha (daughter of Vinay Shinha, who produced the unforgettable “Andaz Apna Apna”, who recently produced the web show “Six Suspects” with Ajay Devgn) is my best friend. She is working on many web shows. She promised to give. She is the role of erasing my comedy image. Twenty-five years after “Ham Punch,” people remember me as Sweetie Matur. ‘.
I also recently did “Nargin”. Ector Kapoor and I went down the path of memory and talked about the days of “Ham Punch”. Ector was 16 at the time.
Are you in touch with the’Hum Paanch’gang?
Yes, I recently met Ashok Salaf’s birthday. I learned comic timing from him.
Saraf is a great actor. And Ekta is a great producer and now a very good mother …
Wearing a hat on her, she’s just amazing.
