Today we bring you another video clip from Humsafars. We had actually planned out something else for you. What was it? Okay it was from Humsafars and for that purpose we were sifting through the videos. And then we found this gem. Fun with the cast video that forms part of our Behind the Scene segment (BTS).
We had almost forgotten about this one. The story is something like this. The scene that was being shot was the morning after a horrendous episode that Aarzoo Nausheen Khan (Shivya Pathania) had had in her life. Zaki (Sehban Azim) had persuaded her to join for breakfast the her having cooped up in her room for days. Continue reading Humsafars | Fun With The Cast | BTS
Humsafars, the show that had garnered lot of buzz online. And yes, we bet you all had thought there would be no more Interview parts of Harshad Chopda. Another bet we felt you would also lose is that we would not give any post today.
With a particular Whatsapp post doing the rounds of Leave Application, we were almost in two minds. Not really. You see, for us a post everyday is like a fix. Just like you all want Harshad Chopda Interview.
So, here is the Part 5 of the conversation we had with Harshad Chopda and yes it was a long winded one.
Now, what did we get up to in this part of the conversation? Well, see for yourself.
And yes, also please do notice how we had mentioned his open laces in a wide shot we had taken in a behind the scene segment. Let us know if you do find it.
Did you? You will have to watch the video fully and carefully. Yeah we did not want you to abandon the interview half way through.
And of course, we have kept in there segments which you have never seen. That is what we do, hoard some scenes to be used for situations like these.
Enjoy the interview.
Watch the Part 4 on our You Tube Channel. We have also placed the link in the video for your convenience and don’t forget to watch the first three parts as well.
Other Humsafars videos are there for you all to reminisce as well.
Here is an Album especially for this part of Interview. Some unseen pictures and some other pictures on our Google Plus Page.
There is this line we got on Whatsapp. Windia Vs Losstralia. Hope that comes through today.
Wallpaper Wednesdays is here again. Now, who is our poster boy today? Of course Varun Toorkey from Qubool Hai who plays Shaad Aftab Khan.
So, here it is a picture of him. We have seen many comments that say, “Oh! he is so good looking!”
Well, that is what most of you see. Of course, that is all you see for now. And you also see him portray Shaad Aftab Khan on screen. But the real Varun Toorkey is a young man who has not just the face that would launch some ships but also personality that is warm and friendly.
He makes anyone he meets not just comfortable but also as if you have known him a long time. We are sure that is what all his new colleagues on the show show feel.
And his repertoire is not limited to weather. He has travelled a lot and can talk about varied subjects from New York to gadgets.
Here is his picture in wallpaper size for you all. Here is another one.
We shall of course bring you an interview with him soon where he can introduce himself to all of you.
We wish him all the best for the show and his role as Shaad.
Watch him every Monday to Friday at 9:30pm on Zee TV in Qubool Hai.
Don’t forget to check out our Google Plus page for more photos of your favourite actors.
Also, videos on the YouTube channel on the show Qubool Hai.
Today, in the Technical Tuesday Segment, we bring you how wound make up is done. Qubool Hai has lot of scenes where would have been inflicted on the artists and how they are brought about is something we bring you.
It is never easy to create a world that is credible and artists and crew work together to give you scenes that are authentic looking.
Be it gun-shot wound, a knock on the head, a cut or bruise, each one has be brought about with make-up that is appropriate. You would see that Additi Gupta who plays New Sanam sports a head wound too. And to maintain continuity is also a task that the assistant directors and make-up artists strive to keep.
In the video of the wound make up we bring how the “wound” was created using cotton and artificial blood.
Yes, there are methods to create wound. With wax, latex and yes cotton, a wound in created and blood would ooze out of it depending on how deep the wound is supposed to be.
Hope you all enjoy these technicalities in filming that we bring you. Keep watching our videos on YouTube under the Technical Tuesday playlist.
Photo-shoot with Amrapali and Additi Gupta who play Mizbah Syed and New Sanam in Qubool Hai was a fun session.
Why do we do this? ‘Cause we enjoy clicking them. We find them not just beautiful, but there is this quality that is elusive. What do we see in Amrapali Gupta? Though she plays an outright evil personality in the show, there is warmth in her that comes across on the camera. She has this softness. She effuses this through her eyes, through her whole demeanour that we find fascinating.
Then there is Additi Gupta, whom we have seen since her days in Kis Desh Mein Hai Mera Dil and find her to be an extremely attractive person. She looks so tough on the outside but we like the quality that is just under the surface, that of a woman who oozes charm and ethereal quality that begs to be captured.
Add to this our penchant for capturing moments with them. Our particular rapport with the artists allows us to get them to pose unlike their characters. We always feel that getting working stills is part of our job, but capturing certain essence of what they actually are is a challenge we want to take up.
We have known Amrapali Gupta for almost two years and she is a consummate actor who gives her all to her role. This quality of hers is something we admire in her. And like a true artist, we see her give it all. Amrapali’s personality of being the married woman who gives home remedies for common ailments is something that would never come across in her character. The character and the person are so far removed that they are like chalk and cheese.
Additi Gupta is a composed and secure person in her own right. And what we find in the character she plays usually is someone who is insecure and vulnerable even when she is playing a negative character. Her voice has this tremor when she is in the scene, especially when she has to dupe people. How she does that is something that fascinates us.
Watch Amrapali Gupta and Additi Gupta in Qubool Hai who essay the role that is negative.
Qubool Hai airs on Zee TV every Monday to Friday at 9:30pm.
Watch our coverage of Qubool Hai on our You Tube Channel.
Also we shall put up an album of the pictures on this post on our Google Plus Page.
Sunday Driver | Reflection, Refraction And Diffraction
Sunday Driver, my Sunday that gives me time to do my own thing. And today I do a bit of the Sunday Driver – Reflection, Refraction and Diffraction.
And What exactly I get up to? Physics lessons? Well, I take these laws and apply it to my life and perhaps you all shall see the same in your life too.
The law of reflection I have taken into account is how waves of water behave in a given situation. And the deeper philosophy I relate to is to live life like a body of water. One would Reflect, Refract and Diffract depending on what “barrier” one encounters in life.
So, reflection then would be angle at which one approaches the barrier, would be equal to way it would reflect off the barrier. This is true all the time though depending on whether the barrier is straight or curved. Do you get what I mean? One would behave in life depending on how straight or curved the ball that one thrown is.
Refraction then is a change in direction. The way one encounters people, shallow or deep one would then change direction or behaviour accordingly.
Diffraction is behaviour around a barrier or the opening one finds. Now diffraction would happen depending on whether the barrier is big or small.
Why am I talking about the laws of physics as an analogy for human behaviour? The simple reason is that one can see how changes in one’s behaviour happens through time, space or what one encounters.
If one day we behave in a fashion that is equal to the type of “barrier” or situation we encounter, the other we would change according to the density of the “barrier” and third we would depending on the size of the barrier.
Life is taking a journey with some baggage that we carry with us which is called experience and our responses are based on that. Is that the person we are? Yes and no. We put across our reaction depending on what one encounters.
Well, enough of the deep stuff and go enjoy your Sunday. Yes, I think about how people come across to me and how I behave with them is simply a reflection, refraction or diffraction. Yes, it is me but is also beyond me. It is the response to stimuli that one gives or gets.
Hope you all see the underlying sub-text with the pictures that I have used for representation.
While you sit back and enjoy your Sunday, check out our YouTube Channel for videos on your favourite shows.
Qubool Hai has drama at its core in the story based in Pakistan. Jannat Shaad Khan (Surbhi Jyoti) has no recollection of who she is and only Shaad Aftab Khan’s (Varun Toorkey) word that he is her husband. Today we bring you BTS of the Wedding Card Sequence from Qubool Hai
Having reached his home, she finds preparation for a wedding and joins in. Little did she realise that the wedding is of her supposed husband. While getting ready in clothes given to her, she discovers the wedding card that proclaims Shaad’s wedding to Mizbah Syed.
And drama ensues as she runs out to stop the wedding. We bring you the sequence where the discovery of wedding card is made.
The behind scene segment will give you a glimpse of how the choreography of the scene was devised. Also how the shot of focus on the card and Jannat getting ready is taken. The fall of the cards and finally the discovery of card by Jannat.
The discussion between Creative Director Ichcha Kohli and Director Arif is an interesting part where how the revelation of the card should happen. The drama of revelation is what makes a scene that could be written of one page turn out to be a three to four minute long scene with use of tools like focus shift, hide and seek with the property and the subject’s point of view shots and zooming in for creating intrigue in the audience.
The idea is to get audience to become anxious and wonder if the subject in the scene will find the revelation that is being expected.
Enjoy the behind the scene video and for more videos like these, watch our Playlist Behind the Scene segment on the YouTube Channel. Of course, to keep abreast of more videos in future don’t forget to Subscribe.

Qubool Hai has seen changes in its storyline. With new cast, story has moved to Pakistan as well and yes, changes in Aahil House too. With all this, we still found some time to get some off-screen moments with Karanvir Bohra and Additi Gupta.
Now, here are some pictures that we had a fantastic time shooting. Both Karanvir and Additi were looking dapper and this was for a promo that should be airing over the weekend.
Watch the promo. We feel it shall turn out well.
Coming back to the pictures. So we ended up getting them to pose for us and yes the lighting was completely ideal for what we thought looking at them. Thanks Amol Babar for giving such perfect mood.
Okay, so we digress yet again. The off-screen moments. The pictures perhaps speak for themselves.
Fun and full of character, each one has something in it and we feel it is because of the ongoing romance of the artists with the camera and we simply become the medium to capture this and bring them to you.
Enjoy this moments and leave us a comment. We shall upload these on our Google Plus Page as well for you to ogle at. Yeah, we do know that you do all these things.

Suvreen Guggal – Topper of the Year had launched three years back on this date. Speaking with Shivin Narang brought back memories and a trip down memory lane for both of us.
A revisit on Anniversay of Suvreen Guggal is something we decided would be neat. Just like a shot of whiskey. Lets drink to that.
Celebration of any kind is welcome. And so we went through our hard drives full of pictures that would delineate a journey of the people we know from the show and the show itself.
Of course, we tried looking for the first video and pictures that we took with Shivin Narang and Smiriti Kalra however, it was a tough job.
Though the memory is quite clear. We had met at Mudh Island on location and yes, had a blast with some interviews and pictures.
From Mita Vashisht to Akshay Anand, Raghu Raja Bhatia, Abhishek Sharma, Ekta Sharma, Heli Daruwala, Vartika Chauhan, Additi Chopra to Maninee Mishra all have left an indelible impression on us.
The show of course belonged to Smiriti Kalra and Shivin Narang however it also people like Simple Kaul and Mohit Malik who created the show what it was in the second season.
Zorro (yes we still call Hitesh Bharadwaj that), Annie, Naro (Karishma Rawat), Tultuli (Disha Thakur) and yes Mannu and Rathi are characters which have become the person itself. Even today, we call all of them by these names.
We leave you with some pictures from the show. Apologies for not including everyone that has been part of the show as to locate the pictures was a humungous task.
Of course, re-live moments on our YouTube Channel under the playlist Suvreen Guggal.
Happy Anniversary to all the cast and crew of Suvreen Guggal.
Shades of Jannat where Jannat is heaven. That is what forms the theme for our Wallpaper Wednesday feature.
Surbhi Jyoti loves a few things and amongst them are children, animals and birds. Whether it is dog, cat that are usually found on the sets of Qubool Hai, Surbhi finds a way to be cuddly with them. Now, she had found Asharfi. The parrot that Gorky M has.
When Asharfi had come to the set, Surbhi and she were quite inseparable. And we bring you pictures of them together.
We wish we had taken a video of them together, the reason being that when Asharfi had playfully bitten Surbhi’s nose on her behest, we had tried to capture the moment. Well, due to motion blur it did not happen. So, Vrushali just told Asharfi, “Phir se ek bar karo Asharfi!” and to her amazement, Asharfi complied. Not once but a few times.
We get you some other pictures of Jannat as well. Not just the heavenly pictures, but Surbhi Jyoti’s character Jannat. Yes, we bring you a few shades of Jannat.
