The festivals of colors is just around the corner. (God! how many articles begin like this? *cringe*) Not you too, is the thought comes to my mind… Delete.
Kab Hai… Kab Hai Holi? (now this is more like us, isn’t it, mouthing favorite movie dialogues for our situation)
Holi aa rahi hai bhai… sab tayyar ho jao.
Get ready to be wild, be free and be yourself. Let the true colors shine this Holi. Let the love shine through everything you do, be it for colors, water, environment and yes your own skin (bacha sako toh bacha lena).
A time to rejoice is what is around the corner. And we bring you glimpses of what is in store for you in Qubool Hai leads who will be celebrating the festival with team of Sapne Suhane Ladakpan Ke.
The pictures give you a story of being in clouds (Yeah, we know one way how to keep our heads in the clouds - Bhaang). Then of course, there is water all around, but yeah go ahead, do have some fun with water but be responsible. Do you have good ideas of conserving water while having a Holi with colors and water? Do Share.
We believe a tank full of water and colors is best way to get maximum fun out of Holi. When else would one get the opportunity to have community bath?
Enough. Enjoy the pictures and look forward to Surbhi Jyoti and Raqesh Vashisht dancing to songs this Holi.
Qubool Hai has seen some confrontation between Zoya and Tanveer and of course, this scene is one of them. For every scene to be convincing, the actors have to put in efforts that gives credence to it. And with actors like Surbhi Jyoti and Amrapali Gupta, of course all of them for that matter, remembering not just the lines but the nuances of the scene to be portrayed is to be kept in mind.
Surbhi Jyoti has one knack. She reads the script once and she remembers it completely. Also, improvisation is something she masters at. Amrapali and Surbhi also need to develop the tuning when doing a scene where scope of such improvisation exists for that is what comes across and we deem this to be as chemistry.
Of course, there is plenty that can go wrong in shooting a scene, as you can see here.
The process of film making is a fascinating one and we bring you that especially for the ones who love to get a glimpse of how things affect a take.
Qubool Hai especially has the Murphy’s Law in place in a big scene like this when there are many people and one wants a lot of movement in a scene for it to be dynamic.
We would like to know if you want us all to bring you special segments depicting nuances and techniques of making a daily soap? Do write you comments
Watch Qubool Hai every Monday to Friday at 9:30pm on Zee TV.
Zoya Farooqui (Surbhi Jyoti) had gotten clues about who her father is from her father herself, of course she did not know this. While Gaffur Ahmed Khan (Tej Sapru) was trying his best to get Zoya to figure out who her father is, she got waylaid by very smart cookies Tanveer (Amrapali Gupta) and Razia Siddiqui ( Alka Kaushal). The sometimes souten and saheli Tanveer is trying to keep Zoya out in the loop.
While Zoya is figuring out who could be doing this, she confronts Tanveer to ask her why she is doing that this to her.
The scene was one where we have them trying to get to the bottom of the situation. The rehearsal of the scene is something we bring for you all. How, Tanveer plays to the gallery of trying to extricate herself from the bind.
The actors work with the director and the crew to get the nuance of the scene right. In a daily soap, the scenes come on daily
Watch Qubool Hai every Monday to Friday at 9:30pm to find out more on the suspense of Zoya and her father. There is lots coming your way from the show and we shall bring you all the behind the scene segments to know how all these people put in efforts to create a scene that will bring you lot of drama.
The scene where we see an interesting undercurrent and of course underhandedness of Haider Shaikh (Mohit Sehgal) in his dealing with Gaffur Ahmed Siddiqui (Tej Sapru) in Qubool Hai is something that would make one start thinking about human nature. While it might seem a tad bit unlikely that a person standing not so far way cannot hear the words spoken between two people, especially when one wants to know what is happening; it is possible. Why?
We have a theory (of course, we always do). Its been some time since we told you about our round table square discussions. Well, this particular scene perhaps made us evaluate how human mind works and yes, we are amateur psychologists. Alright, alright, we won’t go so far.
Back to the theory. We believe that when someone wants to hear or see something, they tend to hear and see just that. Humeira in this case is pre-conditioned to believe that Haider is going to plead with her father for her hand so what is actually being said between the two is immaterial to her, as she is only waiting for the conclusion and hope of knowing that all is well.
That is why perhaps she ran away the minute she realized things are not going as she hoped.
Have you seen this happen ever? We of course, talked about similar situations. For e.g. when one has a crush on someone, one tends to stare obliquely at the person (of course, one believes that no one can make that out) and because one believes the other person likes us, we tend to look for signs of the same. A slight smile, a returned look are gestures we presume are reciprocal of one’s feelings. Lord behold if that person is talking to someone and happens to look at one, we would obviously assume the person is talking about one.
Do you think pre-conceived notions lead to misunderstandings? Would Humeira want to marry the man she believes went to plead to her father if she really knew what they spoke about? They say eavesdroppers never hear good about themselves. Do you concur?
Arjun played by Shaleen Malhotra’s final interview with us was a revelation. Here we bring you the final part of it which is just a sign off and we rolled when he was having a chat with the Production Head.
The camaraderie he shares with people is visible. We could not get the crew to talk to us as either they were too busy or shy to come in front of the camera. But one thing is there, they all love Shaleen Malhotra from the producer to the spotboy. And we can vouch for that.
Of course, we shall bring you the behind the scene segment, the one with Gorky M shooting the last scene.
Qubool Hai will see another wedding, that of Haider Shaikh (Mohit Sehgal) and Humeira Siddiqui (Ketki Kadam). The wedding is something that is forced (or so it seems to us) on Haider or is it just his plan. Whatever it is, his plan (what we can deem of it) is working.
They say pride comes before fall. Now, we somehow see some sort of wringer coming in the way of characters who have gotten married recently. One is Zoya Farooqui (Surbhi Jyoti) who will perhaps have to deal with a lot with being torn due to Gaffur Siddiqui (Tej Sapru), Haider Shaikh or Asad Ahmed Khan (Raqesh Vashisht). Who knows it could be all three. Three important men in a woman’s life, the father, the brother and the husband.
What is going to happen to this wedding? Will Humeira find that waiting for Ayaan would have been better than rushing into something that will only trip her up? Is this love? Or is clever machinations of a man on a mission.
We believe some drama is slated for all the viewers with some twists and turns that may seem as if it has been seen before and some that not seen.
Watch out for Qubool Hai every weekday at 9:30pm on Zee TV.
Shaleen Malhotra is perhaps one of a kind and we say this as we go through the interview he gave us for a lot of reasons. What are these? Well, to begin with, we actually got time with him to speak at length and to take that kind of a time out is not always possible for one and for other the intent to speak with you all about his experience is what made this all happen.
Commitment is what he gives to whatever he does. That is one quality that will get you everywhere.
Being his own person. No fanfare, no trimmings. He is what he is. And yes, when you meet him, you see him without “makeup”. Now, to find a person with that is something rare for an actor or a person. While everyone wears a mask, he is candid. Take it or leave it.
Have we painted a picture of a man who is after your very heart? Don’t blame you. Be it as a friend, a colleague or just a ship you pass in a lifetime, he is a man who will leave you with more than an impression.
Genuine, down-to-earth and amiable is how we find him. And we have perhaps talked about all these qualities over the last year or so.
Will we miss him? Yes and no. Because he is one person who is there whenever you want to get in touch. So, be it Facebook, Twitter or his mobile we know he will respond anytime, anywhere.
There is more of him that we shall bring. Stay tuned.
Qubool Hai has Gaffur Ahmed Siddiqui (Tej Sapru) who is unwittingly connecting the long lost cousins, Haider Shaikh (Mohit Sehgal) and Zoya Farooqui (Surbhi Jyoti). While Zoya is looking desperately for her father and the clues only seem to boggle her further. There are of course people like Razia and Tanveer who wants to severe the connection that actually exists.
But one clue has been found by Haider. He knows Zoya is his Chutki. Now, how will this pan out? Will Haider and Zoya get together and find peace in their relationship or will the revenge that Haider seeks from Gaffur backfire by yet again losing the most important person in his life?
Will the two half-sisters be united or will they be against each other not just for the father’s affection but for Haider’s as well?
What lies ahead is something you will have to watch the series for. But the connecting the dots is something that the characters would have to take on.
Qubool Hai airs every Monday to Friday at 9:30pm on Zee TV.
Arjun – Har Yug Mein Aayega Ek was a show that brought you a message at large for people as they were entertained every weekend with crime stories.
Shaleen Malhotra played the stoic, unconventional cop Arjun Suryakant Rawte who broke a few rules to fight crime while he also fought some personal demons.
Here is the interview and we are calling it part 1 A as it is an in between 1 and 2 (obviously) as we had first thought not to put in the entire 40 odd minutes of chat that we had with people coming in and going, change of costume and what not.
However, we realized that we have had a wonderful conversation and you all get to see more than a systematic “interview”.
Tell us how you like it. And yes, we shall bring you more over the weekend.
We know Haider Shaikh (Mohit Sehgal) of Qubool Hai has revenge as his motive to be in Siddiqui Mansion. He has also made that point clear to Gaffur Ahmed Siddiqui (Tej Sapru). Ketki Kadam who plays Humeira Siddiqui is in love with Haider. And she wants marriage.
What we see here in the pictures is that Haider on behest of Humeira is pleading with Mr Siddiqui to accept him as Humeira’s husband as she looks on. What is Siddiqui going to do? Will he take this fait accompli? Will he be able to save his daughter from being a pawn in Haider’s game?
Is Haider really pleading? Find out in the show every Monday to Friday what is going to happen at 9:30pm.
Also, you will see more drama between Tanveer and Zoya as she tries to find out who is sending her all the clues about her father. We shall bring you that story as well.
P.S. – Watch the pictures. Couple of them are taken while they were rehearsing the scene. Do you see, how Ketki is swinging around in the background?
