Jeetu Malkani who was last seen in Balajiâ€™s Kahaani Ghar Ghar Ki is back from break. The handsome lad has entered Sahara Oneâ€™s Ghar Ek Sapna as a parallel lead. Another new entrant Nidhi Tiwari will be seen opposite him.â€œAfter Kahani I was on a break due to ill health but now Iâ€™m back,â€ says Jeetu.Elaborating on his character he explains, â€œAhaan is a U.S. return guy and a family friend of Alok Nathâ€™s family. His roots are from India but from past eight years he has been staying abroad and is much influenced by the western culture. My character also has a comic touch when it comes to speaking in Hindi, especially the phrases. Ahaan ends up mixing the two phrases which at the end turns comic in the show.â€
There is a love track between you and Nidhi in the show. â€œYa there will be a love track between me and Mritika (Nidhi). Initially we keep fighting but later on these tiffs will eventually turn into love which will bring a big twist in the tale,â€ he quips.
Aftre Kahaniiâ€¦ why not another Balajiâ€™s show? Itâ€™s been heard that you had a fall off with Balaji and thus replaced from Kahaani. â€œItâ€™s not true. I left Kahaaniâ€¦ due to my ill health. As you know I was suffering from jaundice so they arranged for a replacement. I got offers from Balaji for a lead role in Kis Desh Main Hai Mera Dil but could not take it,â€ chirps the actor.
â€œAt that point of time I was not ready for a main stream show on TV as itâ€™s very hectic. Even my health did not permit me to do a daily so I took a break of 3-4 months. To keep my self active I took few episodics,â€ he adds further.
Talking about his relation with Ekta he speaks, â€œI and Ekta share a good rapport. Even my wife is working with Balaji, Archana Bhatt as Pragati in Kahaaniâ€¦ Iâ€™m still in touch with Balaji and there are no grudges in the relation. I took Gharâ€¦ as the concept, script and my character were good.â€
Jeetu believes in one show at a time. Letâ€™s see if this change in track brings some raise in the TRPâ€™s of the show too!
