Hello to all Sasural Genda Phool and Ragini Khanna (aka Suhana) fans! As you might be knowing that this show is off-air now. We tried to catch up with Suhana (as you all know) and discussed what lies ahead for her in the industry now. She specially took out time and had an amazing conversation with me. Over to you now!
In Conversation with Ragini:
Me: As there’s a buzz, what’s your take on the show being shut?
Ragini: Hi. I’m good! I am actually not feeling anything now. As they say, every show has an ending, so be it! If the show has to end it has to end. There’s no said time for a show to remain on-air or to go off-air and its always better to shut it when it is going good and get a sensible ending; rather than just dragging it till audience gets irritated. Sasural Genda Phool has ended on a happy note; I’d consider it to be as a good ending to a new, better and bigger beginning!
Me: Well Ragini, that’s what I call smartness and practicality. I’m sure audience would also move on after a while. We wish you luck for your bigger and better opportunities.
Me: Your MOST memorable moment on the show?
Ragini: The entire journey as Suhana is memorable. But the thing I remember the most is, bullying Ashish Chethi. I used to team up with other guys and we used to bully/rag him a lot! But he’s a sweetheart. He used to always take it sportingly!
Me: Seems like a lot of fun! This reminds me of you as ‘Bharti’ in Bhaskar Bharti. LOL! Fun times 😀
Me: Can fans expect season 2 of Sasural Genda Phool?
Ragini: I’m not aware of any sequel but if it’s going to happen, then I’d definitely like to be a part of it!
Me: And what change would you want in it?
Ragini: Something which I’ve never done before. Something fresh, new and challenging!
Me: Guys, you’re free to give your craziest and whackiest of suggestions for Ragini’s role, in Sasural Genda Phool sequel (If it might just happen, who knows?)
Me: What are your next plans?
Ragini: Nothing really thought on this. I like to move with the flow. As the show’s off-air now, I’d like to spend some quality time with my family and friends, do loads of pending work and discover myself.
Me: Ah! Discover yourself. Hmm.. Being Philosophical! I like it. I’m still on it but haven’t yet fully discovered, what I want to do or become. It’s interesting!
Me: You want become a Bollywood babe or stay TV teen?
Ragini: For me, they both are just different mediums to showcase my acting skills. I’d like to be a part of both, always. (Laughs)
Me: Again a smart answer! You want to eat the cake and its icing too! Hmm.. Not bad at all. “Super like” on your thought of not literally discriminating between both the medium.
Me: Your current favourite show on TV which you’d like to be a part of and why?
Ragini: None on Indian Television. But I love watching Two and a Half Men.
Me: Oh, Wow! Its my favorite show too. Will you act if I make an Indian version of it titled ‘Two and a half women’?
Ragini: (Instantly) Oh yes! I’d love to play Charlie Sheen’s character in it.
Me: Ragini, I’m on it now! I will pen down the new concept for you.
Ragini: (Excitedly) How sweet! Do it soon.
Me: Your Big Goal of 2012?
Ragini: To discover myself. Its been so many years, but still I feel I’m a confused soul. Need to discover myself and that is my goal.
Me: Well, I hope you do discover your actual self, sooner than soon!
Me: 2 lines for iDubba fans/readers/viewers please.
Ragini: Hey first of all, please don’t call Television an idiot-box. Its very intelligent and broadcasts many intelligent shows. Infact, I feel, we are a bunch of idiots sitting in front of it. Instead we should call it “Intelligent Dubba” 🙂 And audience do educate themselves and become “Intelligent Dubba’s Intelligent Audience.” Respect to all readers and viewers who watch TV and do not consider it as an idiot-box. Love to all iDubba readers and viewers. Keep watching your favourite shows and keep loving your favorite actors and characters. Enjoy!
Me: Well, I hope you all have enjoyed reading it. 🙂
