Fistful of Fascinating Facts: Geet Hui Sabase Parayi

With the show soon scheduled to go off air, StarOne’s Geet-Hui Sabse Parayi has always been audience favorite. We at Rangmunch, also owe a lot to the show since three of us that run this site met on a Geet forum and became thick friends who subsequently turned this dream into a reality. We thought, like always, we would bring to you some old faces with new facets. Here are facts that you may not already know about the actors who have worked on your favorite show.
We have all seen the obsessive and passionate Vikram and love to hate him for giving tough time to our dear Maaneet. Thanks to Vikas Sethi who breathed life into the character and made it so real and relatable. He is an actor par excellence, but let us share some unheard facts about him. Did you know that Vikas has taken formal training in singing from the Bollywood maestro Anu Mallik’s father? Surprised!!! Well so were we but its true. Besides being an Actor and Singer, Vikas also sketches beautifully.
Did you know that Lucky aka Ahwaan Kumar comes to work riding on his “Dhanno?” Confused!!! Well his Dhanno, is not Char Pao wala but Do Tyre Wala. We are talking about Ahwaan’s Red Bike which is extremely dear to him as he won it in a contest six years back. He very proudly flaunted his Dhanno to us as we captured them together in our camera.

Sundeep Sharma, the Director of Geet has not only had the experience of working behind the camera but has also worked in front of the camera. Not sure how many of you are aware, but  Sundeep Sharma has been the lead actor in the serial Imtihaan which use to be aired on DD Metro. So he knows not only what happens behind the camera, but has faced it too.
From Reporting to Acting, she has done it all. We are talking about Preeto aka Khushboo Thakkar who apparently was a Reporter at Telly Chakkar and acting just happened to her. Infact when she saw us set hopping she got nostalgic and remembered her days at Telly Chakkar when she would go around meeting actors and doing interviews. From doing Gurmeet’s famous “I lived on 2.5 Rs Waala Biscuit Packet Interview” to sharing screen space with him, Khushboo indeed has come a long way.
Hey do you know her?? Any guesses?? She is Goma, Drashti’s hair dresser. So now you can put a face to the person who gave Geet aka Drashti her makeover.
Geet to its credit has had various Directors. But the entire Vikram kidnapping and the subsequent thrilling Jungle Sequences were shot by Director Shashank. Here’s another name you could add to the list of people associated with the show you love.

Sanju and Mehboob

Meet Sanju, Mehboob Ali and Manish the men who make it all happen. Well, right from what scenes are to be shot for the day to which artist would be available to make sure the set, the shoot as as well the activity once on location happens as planned, this Production Team ensures dutiful carrying out of activity! Imagine a day on the sets where there is no one to organise anything? would you then be able to watch your shows on time?

One last one, just for all of you! This was taken when Gurmeet was just about to venture off into the jungle to look for his Geet. Guess what he had for support all along? Her dupatta!! Thanks Gurmeet for smiling and posing for us. Trust us guys, if you see the heat and the condition in which the actors, cast and crew shoot, you realise how much of themselves they have to put into in order to make sure things turn out the right way. One small minute error and you have to redo the shot! Rightly said, united we stand, divided we fall!!
