Soon, a new family, the Thakurs will be introduced in Imagine's Do Hanson Ka Joda. So far, the serial is revolving around Shubhangi Atre (Preeti) and Shaleen Bhanot's (Suryakamal) families and lives. The on-going track is about Suryakamal's sister's marriage, which has been called off. A new family comprising Rakesh Bedi, Ali Hassan and Sikandar Kharbanda will enter the show to create trouble in Preeti's life. Sikandar's claim to fame is Kasauti Zindagi Kay. In the serial, he is shown to be a film producer who wants to make Bhojpuri films and be a hero. "I am playing a filmi guy from Chattisgarh, who wants to become a Bhojpuri superstar. He is a funny and positive character. I have even been given a funky look." He, however, is unwilling to reveal how the story will move ahead.
Gurmeet misses Debina
Gurmeet Choudhry, who is acting in Star One's Geet, is having a tough time of late. A few days ago, he was down with fever. Then he was forced to eat green chillies for a sequence in the serial. Now the actor has also dislocated his right shoulder. Moans Gurmeet, "In one of the scenes the lift door was not opening. I was supposed to get irritated and bang on the door. There were two or three retakes before the shot was okayed. I felt a shot of pain in my right shoulder but I ignored it. However, it started swelling and eventually I had to show to a doctor. He tied my shoulder, gave me some medicines and told me not to use the right arm." But the actor is still continuing his shoot. After all you cannot play with the schedules of a daily. But he is being careful with his right arm. Gurmeet, is however missing his beau Debina Bannerjee, who is in Satara shooting for a special episode of Aahat on Sony. "Poor Guru. Wish I was there to take care of him. He tends to ignore his health most of the time," sighs Debina.
