Guddan Tumse Na Ho Payega bids adieu after a successful 2-year long run


Zee TV’s popular fiction show, Guddan Tumse Na Ho Payega, has received immense love from the audience courtesy its consistent unique and intriguing storyline. From entertaining the viewers with its unique and never-seen-before concept revolving around the country’s youngest Saas, younger than the bahus of the household, to introducing a
20-year leap that depicted the ups and downs in Choti Guddan’s life, the show has been well appreciated by the audience. While Akshat (Nishant singh Malkhani) and Guddan’s (Kanika Mann) stunning chemistry became the talk of telly town and was loved by the viewers, Agastya (Savi Thakur) and Choti Guddan’s (Kanika Mann) fresh and innocent love story also soon found a place in the audience’s heart after the leap. Having intrigued and entertained the viewers with interesting stories for nearly 2 years, the show is  now all set bid adieu and will be replaced by Zee TV’s new fiction property Teri Meri Ikk Jindri which will air at 8pm, every Monday to Saturday on Zee TV.

 

During the period of two years, the show welcomed many interesting and well-defined characters that were convincingly played by some very talented actors like Kanika Mann Nishat Singh Malkani, Savi Thakur, Maera Mishra, Pratham Kunwar, Rashmi Gupta and many more. Wrapping up memories and moments of nearly 2 years, the entire cast and crew bid a heartfelt farewell to each other as the commemorated the moment by cutting a cake on the set while wiping away tears of joy.


Sharing her moment and expressing her thoughts, Kanika Mann shared, “I got to know about it(show going off air) on December 31 and thought to myself, what a day to learn that your debut show is wrapping up. At first, I was shocked, but I comforted myself by thinking that the New Year will mark new beginnings for me. I stayed positive. However, I could not hold back my tears while shooting the last scene. I just couldn’t muster the courage to speak those lines. That’s when it really started sinking in and I felt like something was drifting away from me. Whatever I am today is because of this show. I was new in the industry. Along with Guddan, who evolved from a jhalli ladki to a mother, I, too, grew as a person and an artiste. ‘Guddan’ is my baby. I am so attached to it that I don’t know how long the feeling will last. However, I would like to thank the audience for being our pillars of support and strength. Love you all”


Adding on actor Savi Thakur mentioned, “The news was shocking at first and of course I really do wish that there was more of Agastya that could have been explored as a part of this show. I am extremely sad hearing the news but having said that, I believe that certain good things end only for better things to take their place. I feel blessed to have been a part of a show with such an out-of-the-box concept and it goes without saying that I am going to miss this show terribly. Now that the show is coming to an end, I cannot help but say, all's well that ends well. I just want to thank all the people involved with this show and more importantly, to all our viewers for constantly loving and supporting us in this journey.”

Mohit Duseja overwhelmed with emotions as he collaborates with ALT Balaji again for Who's Your Daddy 2'


After ‘Ragini MMS: Returns’, ‘Ragini MMS returns season 2’ and ‘Kasam Tere Pyaar Ki’, actor Mohit Duseja has once again collaborated with Ekta Kapoor’s Balaji Telefilms for season two of ‘Who’s Your Daddy’ and the young actor can't keep calm about it. “Working with Balaji has always been a fabulous experience for me,” he says.

“It all started with ‘Kasam…’ and thereon, I got to do some amazing work, which helped me become a better performer and a professional actor,” he added.

Speaking of coming on board for ‘Who’s Your Daddy’, Mohit says, “I was working on another show, but it got waived off because of the pandemic. Therefore, I started auditioning for other projects and one day got a call from Balaji for the character of Appu (Mohit’s character in the series).”

“I had to go through a long audition process before they finalized me for the role,” he recalls.

The show is streaming on ALT Balaji since December 22, 2020.

Mohit is in love with his character and says ‘it was so much fun playing it on-screen’

“Appu (Apurv) is a typical college-going Delhi boy, who is funny, confident, and a little self-obsessed. He is under the impression that he is the king of his college. Though he is a great person, Apruv gets negatively influenced and start doing a couple of bad things,” reveals Mohit.

The team had the pressure of completing the entire shoot within 16-17 days. Mohit says, though it was hectic, we didn’t miss out on our fun. “Firstly we had a deadline to meet. Secondly, it was completely an outdoor shoot, which most of the time turn disastrous. But I believe, we were very lucky to complete the entire show so smoothly. In fact, we enjoyed a lot.”

“Since the show is based on college life, most of the actors on the set were of my age. It was a party for us in Amritsar. Moreover, our director was a very cheerful man. It took no time for us to bond. I can’t tell you how much we enjoyed it till the last day,” concludes the actor, who is very happy about the response his show has received so far.

Mohit was also a part of MTV Love School 3, a show that shot him to fame. He has appeared in various commercials as well.
