2012 – The year that was for TV actors – Tellychakkar featuring Neha Sargam
As we are on the last lap of the year 2012, it’s time for us to rewind and find out how has been the year personally and professionally for your favourite TV actors.
Team Tellychakkar.com approached a few TV celebs and asked them to wind back.
- Kunal Karan Kapoor: 2012 was fabulous. I have travelled all around the world. I did a great show in Na Bole Tum Na Maine Kuch Kaha and am happy that I am coming back again with season 2. Hope 2013 also does justice to me.
- Aakanksha Singh: Overall, it was a great and successful year for me. I am waiting for 2013, as I am coming back with Na Bole Tum Na Maine Kuch Kaha season 2. So, I am really excited. On the personal front, I got time to look after myself in these three to four months. I also got a chance to spend time with my family members.
- Shantanu Maheshwari: The year 2012 was great; it was superb both on the professional as well as on the personal front. The main highlighting moments of the year was when I got chance to perform with the Moulin Rouge dance troupe. Recently, Kunwar Amar and I were selected as the Best Jodi. So, there has been stabilization in my career while on personal level, I have grown as a person. Every day we learn something new. So way to go… 2013.
- Shakti Mohan: All the best things happened in 2012. I visited by dream city New York where I made new friends and met international choreographers. Of course, the launch of my 2012 calendar…it has been a fruitful year. Looking forward to embracing year 2013!!!
- Karanvir Bohra: 2012 was one of my best years till now. Of course, work wise Saubhagyavati bhava happened in my life. I won awards for my Viraj character that I played in it. Personally, I am blessed with such a beautiful wife and life, Teejay. So, in all, the year 2012 was fantastic and hope 2013 is also so. (laughs)
- Krystle Dsouza: 2012 was a very good year both personally and professionally for me. The best thing that could have happened to me was Ek Hazaroon… Since I enjoy dancing, I took part in many dance performances. So, on the whole, 2012 was a successful year and would want to go with the flow in 2013.
- Shaleen Malhotra: If I look back in 2012, I think the year was outstanding. Got an opportunity to host Roadies 9 and moreover, Arjun came my way. At this point of time, my career is sorted out and so is my life.
- Ragini Khanna: 2012 did get me through both sorrow and happiness. Sorrow because Sasural Genda Phool went off air and happiness because I got to anchor Jhalak Dikhlaa Jaa. I am glad that on that part, I got time to introspect and look deep within me. There was a time when I used to think as to why I was working so much? But later, I realized it was for my fans. I am glad that my fans have loved and motivated me. Next year, I am going to rock with a comeback. Till then, take care!!
- Shashank Vyas: Professionally, the year 2012 was a good year. I am earning good but as a citizen of country, I am not happy. I don’t know where is our country heading to? I am very disturbed with the gang rape that happened in Delhi and think that it was something beyond rape. It might sound cliché, but I was stunned when I saw kids being beaten up by cops during a protest near India Gate. And at the end, there has been neither any action nor any results. People are back to their normal life and busy making plans for New Year.
- Prerna Wanvari: The year 2012 year was very special as I got nominated for the Best Supporting Actress category. Also, I was fortunate to have presented an award at the International Emmy Awards in New York and got to meet Jessica Lange, a fab actress and James Manos, the creator of Dexter. I have worked really hard and am getting results too. I have a dream that in 2013, I am doing even better work, say a film and a good role as a lead in a TV show, and I also wish to take the entire Tellychakkar team partying (wink wink).
- Rahil Azam: The year 2012 was smooth enough. Health wise, it was good too. And one good thing that happened to me was that I have become very punctual. I will give my best and keep working hard. Rest, I leave on Allah!
- Neha Sargam: Every year has its different flavour. It is best on its own. 2012 was special to me since I got Ramayan. So, on both professional and personal fronts, everything was smooth going. At this point of time, I am happy and content and hope that 2013 will also go well. (smiles)
Star Diary – Neha Sargam. Tellychakkar
When I took a gap of seven months from TV, my fans compelled me to come back: Neha Sargam
A page from the personal diary of Neha Sargam
Hello everyone, this is Neha Sargam whom you see as Sita in Zee TV’s Ramayan.
Firstly, let me wish everyone of you a Happy New Year and compliments of the season.
Let me start by briefing you a bit about myself. I am born and raised in Patna, where I completed my schooling. Later, I pursued advertisement and sales promotion and marketing from Patna University.
Currently, I stay in Mumbai with mom and younger sister, while dad is handling his business in Patna.
Well, let me divulge that I was never interested in acting; always thought of becoming a singer. So to chase my dream, I went for the audition of Indian Idol 4.
There, I made it till the second round but due to throat infection, I could not go ahead.
Now, here comes the interesting twist on how my journey started in the industry. Well after Indian Idol audition, I started getting calls from production houses for roles. But as I was studying then, I rejected all of them. After graduation, Rajan Shahi saw the footage of my Indian Idol audition and gave me a call for his upcoming show. Rajan Sir came to my place and made my parents understand. Thoroughly satisfied, I finally gave my nod and thereafter did Chand Chupa Badal Mein for Star Plus.
After Chand Chupa Badal Mein, I did a few cameos in shows such as Haar Jeet on NDTV Imagine and Punar Vivah on Zee TV. Currently, as mentioned above I am playing Sita in Ramayan.
Talking about journey, it has been great so far. After Chand Chupa… I took a gap of seven months.
During that period, I got so many letters and messages from fans asking me to comeback saying that they want to see me back on television. I think that moment made me return to television. It motivated and made me to work harder.
On the personal front, I am a very homely person and like to spend time with my family. To unwind myself I watch movies and pamper myself a lot.
So this is my journey till now. I am blessed to have such lovely fans. Whatever I am today is because of them. So a big thank you to everyone. Stay blessed!!
Neha Sargam living upto her surname – Article in TOI
People live up to their names. But Neha Sargam seems to be living up to her surname! The actress, who plays Sita in ‘Ramayan’, has a honey-coated voice that can hold a tune beautifully.
Neha, in fact, had auditioned for a singing reality show in the past, which landed her initial roles on television. These days, it has become almost a regular feature on the sets of Ramayan in Baroda for her to sing a song between takes and during breaks. And while the entire cast loves listening to her, her biggest fan is her on-screen brother-in-law, Neil Bhatt, who plays Lakshman in the show. Sources reveal that Neil invariably has a farmaaish for Neha and doesn’t let her sit at peace unless she sings the song of his choice!
Said Neil Bhatt, “We are a little cut off from our own world in Mumbai, since we are shooting for Ramayan in Baroda. In times such as these, it’s great to bond with your fellow artistes. Neha’s a fabulous singer, so I make her render songs of my choice every now and then. She has a great range as a singer and can sing all kinds of songs.”

Diwali fervour grips small screen – Neha Sargam
I think the kid in me is still alive and I refuse to be just sitting around during festivals. This is the only time of the year when we can have unrestrained fun and not be reprimanded for acting like a kid. Lakshmi Puja forms an integral part of the Diwali function.
