I, Me, Myself! – Melanie Pais!

Rangmunch: What are the 3 tabs that are always open on your internet browser ?

Melanie: YouTube, Goggle search called Melanie Pais (laughs out) and third tab would be (after a pause) my Black Berry Apps world.

Rangmunch: What makes you angry?

Melanie: A Lot of things. I hate people who lie, who boast about themselves. I don’t understand the concept of boasting, ki I am this and I am that. I like people who are simple and who tell the truth. I really get angry with people who are sweet on your face and talk behind your back, in other words I hate backbiting. Basically I have a problem with people who are not good human beings.

Rangmunch: What would you do when you are broke and can’t buy your favourite dress?

Melanie: I have got this friend of mine who has got all the clothes possible in the world and her name is Dhrasti Dhami. I would just go, open her cupboard and take it out. I don’t need to go to any shop trust me. If you see her collection of clothes you would know, she has all possible brands and hence you would never have the need to go out. Just go open her cupboard and pick the stuff. So I’m sure if I am broke that’s what I am going to do.

Rangmunch: Are you a shopaholic, workaholic or alcoholic?

Melanie: I am not at all an alcoholic. I don’t drink at all. I’m a shopoholic and I have become a  workaholic now. Earlier I was not.

Rangmunch: How do you deal with people who give you unwanted advice?

Melanie: I just listen to them smilingly but do not implement it in my daily life. Everyone is entitled to their views and so I can’t be rude and say shut-up. I hear them and go about doing my work.

Rangmunch: How do you deal with intrusive  fans who want personal information about you?

Melanie: People have been really sweet to me. They have asked me questions which are always answerable.

Rangmunch:What kind of a Role in a show would challenge you?

Melanie: Something that is not only about crying. You know I love this girl in Sasural Genda Phool, Ragini. I just love her character. I feel that’s what actually we are today. I would love to play something that is natural and real. All the characters and everything in that show is very real. I love that about the show. And one show I would love to do if it ever gets remade is “Sarabhai vs Sarabhai.”

Rangmunch: So how has 2011 been for you?

Melanie : Its been a fantastic year. I think its been one of the best years. I personally feel that as my life is going ahead, my years are getting better and better. I’m very thankful to God for giving me such a good life. I don’t think I could have asked for anything better.

Rangmunch: What are your plans for New Year?

Melanie: For New Year, I’m going to Dubai. That’s the first time I’m leaving the country ever in my life and I am very very excited about that.

Rangmunch: Do you make New Year Resolutions?

Melanie: See, people make resolutions when they want to leave something or they have bad habits. I don’t smoke, I don’t drink, I don’t party a lot. So I don’t need to give up anything. Abhi khana bhi give up kar diya hai as  I’m dieting. Sab kuch hi agar give up kar diya, then life mein there will be nothing left.

I, Me, Myself! – Shashank Vyass!

Let us introduce you all to a guy who is not only very down to earth but is also humble about life. He takes life’s challenges with a smile and listens to criticsism with honesty.You all know him as Jagya in “Balika Vadhu”, but we at Rangmunch.TV bring you the real man Shashank Vyass who with his straight forward approach to life and work is slowly creating a niche for himself .
Rangmunch : What’s the craziest thing you want to do?

Shashank: Sky diving I guess. Seeing the movie “Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara” has  motivated me. Lets see how it comes across.

Rangmunch: What’s your biggest fear?

Shashank: After telling a lie, being caught by some one.

Rangmunch: What do you think you need to change about yourself?

Shashank: I want to control my anger. Anger is not related to someone but it is within you, so yes I wanna control that.

Rangmunch: What is missing in your life at the moment?

Shashank: Basically I lost my Mother in February 2009. That’s been the biggest loss to me and I really miss her at the moment.

Rangmunch: Do you think everthing happens for a reason?

Shashank: For sure, and that to for a good reason.

Rangmunch: Do you let other people’s negativity affect you?

Shashank: No, never. If I am a positive person, then why should I let it affect me? I’m working in a cut throat competitive enviorment and if I have to survive, then I can’t let negativity affect me.

Rangmunch: Who has had the greatest impact on your life?

Shashank: My mother. While my father taught me how to work, my mother told me how and when to do that.

Rangmunch: As an actor what is your long term program, say 5 years from now?

Shashank: I would love to play negative roles as I would learn a lot from that.

Rangmunch: Do you watch any other show on TV?

Shashank: Well I watch Discovery Channel and loads of movies. Basically I am a movie buff. I never miss a new release. I loved watching Bol, Bodyguard and The girl in yellow  boots.

Rangmunch: Do you smile more than you frown?

Shashank: Yes I do.

Rangmunch: One thing you are grateful for in life?

Shashank: To be a part of the most popular show Balika Vadhu. To be working with senior actors in a high brand show which was already doing so well and that too doing a lead role. To be working here in Balika Vadhu, is like getting trained from the best training academy.

Rangmunch: Do you miss your hometown?


Shashank: No, not that much. After my mother passed away, I can’t stay for more than 2 days. “Bohot khali khali lagta hai.” Moreover my Father goes to work, and my sister is married. Mumbai is better, since it keeps me busy all the time.

Rangmunch: If not an actor, then what would you have become?

Shashank: If not an actor then I would have completed my MBA and taken up a job.

Rangmunch: How do your friends react now seeing you on small screen?

Shashank: My friends have been my driving force. Seeing me do plays in college, they always said to pursue acting and told me “ja Mumbai ja.” Today my friends are very happy for me. I have five close friends, three from my college while the other two are my room- mates in Bombay.

Rangmunch: Were you a back bencher or a front bencher in school?

Shashank: Considering my height, I was always made to sit at the back. Also I could never be the monitor of my class since I did a lot of masti.

Rangmunch: Who is your biggest critic?


Shashank: Its my Father. But honestly you are your biggest critic. Your conscious will say if your work has been good or not. So its you who is the biggest critic.

Rangmunch: How do you deal with people’s criticism about you on forums?

Shashank: Well if they are upset and critical about me, I definitely try and work on that as I am answerable to my fans. Its not easy to keep everyone happy but I definitely try to do so.
Hope you enjoyed the interview as much as we did bring it to you!!

I, Me, Myself: Karan Tacker!

What do you think is the common link between Sameer of Love Ne Mila Di Jodi, Shantanu of Rang Badalti Odhani and Viren of Ek Hazaaro Mein Meri Behna Hai? Any guesses? Well the answer is KARAN TACKER, the face behind all these characters, which we have loved and adored.
Rangmunch.TV as a platform has always tried to bridge the gap between the fans and their favourite stars by bringing forth news, articles and interviews related to them. Having said that, we recently got in touch with the smart and suave Karan Tacker and this is what he had to say about himself.

Rangmunch: What according to you is your greatest asset ?
Karan: My honesty. I’m basically a very honest and simple guy.  So ya, I would say honesty.
Rangmunch: Are you possessive by nature ?
Karan: I’m extremely possessive by nature. I’m very possessive of  the people that I love. Be it family, friends or  girl friend…I’m possessive. I think it’s a very Punjabi trait to be possessive of the women you love (says laughingly).
Rangmunch: Are you very religious ?
Karan: No, not really. But during Diwali and other such festivals , I do follow the rituals.
Rangmunch: Do you judge others?
Karan: I would be lying if I say that I don’t judge. I think when you meet somebody, the first thing you do is form an opinion of them. So I think the judgement is very natural. Opinionated is too natural.
Rangmunch: Who is that one person you would like to say sorry to right now?
Karan: (laughs) All my ex girlfriends would definitely need an apology from me (laughs again).
Rangmunch: If you were to be a woman for a day, who would it be?
Karan: I would love to be Sonia Gandhi. I would love to know how she does it .I mean how she runs the country, and not how she does it (laughing slyly)
Rangmunch: If you were to change your name for a day, what name would you choose for yourself ?
Karan: Hmmm.. I’m like a dog yaar. Once you give me a name , I would only relate to that. So I can only relate to Karan (had me in spilts).
Rangmunch: Do you forgive yourself easily?
Karan: Do I forgive myself  easily ( ponders only for a second before replying )… I love myself  yaar. I forgive myself even before I make a mistake. I forgive myself for all my mistakes (laughs out loudly)
Rangmunch: Do you lie to bail out of things?
Karan: Ofcourse, we all do . As honest as I am, but kahin na kahin white lies are more mature than saying the truth . Its ok to be honest but knowing some one is going to take the hard way , its better this way …. If you know what I mean.
Rangmunch: What’s your idea of a hangout after a hard days work?
Karan: Chilling out yaar. Go in my living room with my dog. I like chilling with friends over a meal. I don’t really like going out . Basically I’m a simple guy, who just likes to spend time at home . I Don’t believe in getting drunk and all. I like it easy, chilling with friends over conversation.
Rangmunch: Do you believe in the concept of falling out of love?
Karan: Definitely. You seeing a girl at 15 and then seeing her at 25. There is a lot of maturity in personality from then to now. Your needs and priorities change.When that compatibility goes away, you feel you have fallen out of love.
Rangmunch: What are you proud of?
Karan: Well, I am proud of my persistence and hard work. I am little obsessive that way. I’m self critical where my work is concerned. I come from a business background, who does not know jackshit about acting. But being persistant definitely  helped me in getting  through three shows till now.
Rangmunch: Do you read the newspaper and which is your favourite  section?
Karan: Yes of course I read. I’m obsessed with the Bombay Times. I  don’t  think anyone from this industry would not  be. I always pull up the supplement and go through the headlines from it.
Rangmunch: Do you look into the mirror a lot?
Karan: Definitely yaar. I feel you cant be an actor if you don’t see yourself much (laughs).
Rangmunch: Describe yourself in one sentence ?
Karan: Hmmm.. I’m just a simple hard working guy.
We all love Karan the Actor, but we are sure after reading this interview you will now love Karan the Person a little more.

Love will find its Way!!

Love “The higher you build the walls around your heart, the harder you fall when someone tears them down “

Love knocks when you least expect it to. In the case of Ahem, love is coming like a slow breeze and washing away all doubts, insecurities, and negative vibes he had for Gopi. Most importantly his pride is taking a back step as he is slowly realising what Gopi means in his life. Ahem has always given his status and stature more importance than anything else. Anyone or anything below him has always been unacceptable. Can we blame him entirely? No, because any educated, well defined guy would expect a decent educated girl. So if Ahem desired this, it was not wrong. Gopi just got caught unfairly in this battle. But when destiny decides to intervene and make two opposite people come together, one has very little say.

Ahem didn’t have to try very hard to hate Gopi. He put up various defences,a whole suit of armour so that nothing could hurt him. He kept on humiliating her so that she would stay away. Her raw, clumsy and silly little things were enough to annoy Ahem and make him walk in the other direction.

Time passed by. Gopi’s dedication to study, her nature to do good, her innocence in being happy with simple things around her started to pave way in Ahem’s heart. Unknowingly Ahem’s heart started to skip a beat. Gopi with her changed attitude or should we say, Ahem with his changed outlook started to perceive and see Gopi differently? She created and stirred something inside Ahem which he is not been able to understand.

In an interesting twist in Saath Nibhana Saathiya, filled with drama and suspense, looks like Ahem is finally all set to melt towards his wife. In an episode that went by, Ahem was seen rushing Gopi to the hospital after a couple of slabs landed on her in the process of wanting to save Rashi.

When Rangmunch team contacted Ved Raj, the Writer of the Show, and asked him about the current track, this is what he had to say. “Ahem as a character has been very arrogant, egoistic and staunch in his beliefs. However the only person who affects him the most is his mother Kokila and she is the sole reason he agrees to marry Gopi. At the moment the bonding that we are witnessing between Ahem and Gopi is not Love, but is more of concern and affection towards one another. But we also know that eventually this will culminate into a love story. It was a conscious decision to take the story slowly and show a gradual progression in their relationship. Also as per our Indian society, Love after Marriage is a slow process and widely accepted by the audience.”


Will he see this as  just care or love? With her being in the hospital, will Ahem break the barriers of formality and step towards Gopi? Will the inevitable happen? A new journey for Ahem and Gopi is definitely in the making.
