NM’s post about a TV serial, brought back some fond memories, mostly of Doordarshan. There were certain shows which still stand unforgettable even today.
“Kashish” : Sudesh Beri and Malvika Tiwari played the lead roles. It had just 6 episodes but you feel so connected as if you know them from ages. A director falling in love with his heroine, so well acted and directed. The title track was great, and portrayed the emotions well …”Na Jane Kyo , ek Kashish si hai …Dil haule se dastak deta hai ...” That was my favourite TV serial ever. You may blame it to my age then 😉 though I still cannot resist love stories 😛
“Fauji” : Shahrukh khan got introduced and became the talk of the school 🙂
“Circus” : Who can forget that. Renuka Shahney , Shahrukh Khan and so many others became a part of our lives then.
“Nukad” : Again Renuka Shahney and who can forget Khopari …the drunkard.
“Dard” : Never watched the serial but loved the title track ..”Dil ka ek chehra dikhayi dega, Dard bola toh sunai dega …” wonderfully sung by Jagjit Singh.
“Mrugnayani” : Ohh I became a fan of Pallavi Joshi since then , she looked beautiful.
“Swabhimaan” : One of its kind. First fancy serial on DD. Time was odd and so I never watched it , but I remember how the Rishab (Rohit Roy) of the serial made my friends crazy.
There have been certain small screen heros and heroines who have been my favourites for no obvious reasons :
Pallavi Joshi – “Mrugnayani” fame
Kitu Gidwani – “Swabhimaan” and “Shaktimaan” is all I can remember
Renuka Shahney – Circus, “Nukad”, “Kora Kagaj” and the movie “Hum aake Hain Kaun“
Gracy Singh – “Laagaan” fame ..was first seen in TV serial “Amanat”
Malvika Tiwari – Probably due to “Kashish” 😛
Off recent Prachi Desai – “Kasam se”..Daily soap on Zee
Sudesh Beri – Again for “Kashish”
Maamik – Big brother from “Jo jeeta wohi Sikandar” and “Kya Kehna” was earlier a TV actor.
Ashutosh Gowarikar – When he had hair 😛 Was seen in CID
Ronit Roy – Yes Yes …Mr Bajaj of “Kausauti..” fame.
There are a lot more ..cannot recall all ..What do you say ?
