Sonyâ€™s Kabhi Kabhie Pyaar Kabhi Kabhie Yaar,the unique dance reality show that showcased seven popular celebrity trios comprising of a reel life and a real life partner has seen its winner!!The Grand Finale was between the very talented Krushna-Kashmera-Mukul Dev and the vastly improved Tina-Karnvir-Teejay and it was experience that paid off as Krushna,Kashmera and Mukul emerged as winners!! â€œWe have worked very hard, and it was a close call in the finaleâ€,quips Kash.â€œFor the last two weeks,we could not get good scores with Mukul, but our perseverance paid offâ€ quip Kash and Krushna.When asked whether the voting process with no audience vote is justified,Kash says,â€œThe panel is an established one.If it was left for the audience to decide, they would have voted for the characters of the show.
We are excited about the win and are proud to have been part of Ektaâ€™s showâ€.A lot of questions have been raised on the manner in which the jury marked the contestants.But Krushna states,â€œThey never made any personnel remark on us and their constructive criticism helped us improve more in the showâ€. Krushna couldnâ€™t stop himself from commenting about the K Factor win.â€œThis is Ektaâ€™s first reality show and her â€œKâ€ factor worked.Our names start with K and during the show I changed Mukulâ€™s name to Kool so that the â€œKâ€ factor works for us as well and it workedâ€ (Laughs).
Krushna was all praise for Kash when he said, â€œShe always comes up with unique concepts and we have been appreciated for the sameâ€. Kashmera believes her journey was quite different from that of Krushna and Mukul. â€œI had a different journey as I had to balance both my career as well as my love. All the other trios had one man and two women, while it was quite different in my case. The themes of love, seduction were difficult to perform and it could not have been possible without the support of Krushna. He rather coached Mukul so that we can raise our bar. We had to maintain the basic trust and love for which I will always give credit to Krushnaâ€, says an emotional Kash. Reciprocating this love was Krushna who said, â€œI love you for always maintaining this basic trust and loveâ€.
The Finale will see the two finalist trios performing on three different numbers â€“ one with the pyaar, another with the yaar and the final one featuring all the three. â€œWe performed on a very unique concept in our final performance. It was a Saibaba song, a devotional one and apparently the day we shot for this was Saibabaâ€™s birthday. So we were glad that he blessed usâ€, states an elated Kash.
As a final note, the romantic couple says, â€œWe went not only to win, but also to entertain people. We really had a blastâ€.
Not to forget, the â€˜Yaarâ€™ of Kashmera, Mukul Dev is also a delighted man after winning the contest. â€œIt was an amazing experience to be part of this show. I can now say that my whole life has changed after being part of this. I had not danced for many years and I felt great going back to my olden days. Above all, I have got a family in Kash and Krushnaâ€, avers Mukul. Lastly, Mukul says he was too overjoyed when the winner was announced. â€œI was jumping like a kid when our name was announcedâ€, concludes the actor.
