Gaurav Khanna talks about his track in Anupamaa; says, “can’t a mature and calm Anuj have an emotional outburst because he has lost his daughter?”
The latest track in the popular TV show Anupamaa has started a debate over Gaurav Khanna’s character Anuj Kapadia’s behavior towards his wife Anupama ( essayed by Rupali Ganguly) in the show.
While some feel that Anuj was this perfect man who could never do anything wrong to Anupama and he shouldn’t have changed, another section feels that Anuj’s behavior is justified and his reaction is right because of the situation in his life.
Gaurav talked about it during a recent interview and shared, “People have to understand that Anupamaa is a slice-of-life show; it is not like other fiction shows on TV. And though Anuj Kapadia loves his wife a lot, one has to understand that people react differently in different situations. He is broken and emotionally in a bad state right now. He has asked his wife so many times to keep away and to leave him alone but his wife wants to comfort him. I had done my homework and research before this track and I found out that many times in a relationship even if a man or woman is extremely mature, they can go to the point of extremities when some unfortunate incident happens in their lives. Anuj’s character is a giver, a family man. From the beginning he has lost a lot in his life – parents, caretaker, sister, lost the love of his life and marries her after 26 years. So, when a man has lost so much in life, his patience goes to another level when he finally loses his daughter. Can’t a mature, understanding, calm man have an emotional outburst? Can’t he cry or become mad because of a certain situation in his life? I feel the track is portraying a normal situation in everyday life and depicting how real a relationship can get.”
Gaurav added, “I won’t be able to reveal more about how the story will unfold in future episodes, but people need to understand that people are not perfect, they are normal and that’s what our show is portraying. When you get married and have a child, the entire focus of parents is on the child. When a boat sinks, and if your child is on it, obviously you save the child first and then your other family members. Many people have also asked me about comparisons with Vanraj and even Devika (Jaswir Kaur) compares me with Vanraj’s character, but I feel audiences know that the two characters are not similar. There have been instances of very sane, mature, calm corporate honchos going crazy or undergoing depression and doing extreme things. I feel the track is interesting and a great challenge.”
Aye Gaurav Khanna, Mr Kapadia viewers love you to death so keep your comments very neutral, ok?
Yes you are allowed to be emotional, but you overdoing it and they are stretching it too long that your emotional scenes have become boring!!!!!
You already know its Ma’An or nothing, please dont be that negative, it’s not Anupama fault only, if she stopped you you should have stood up like you are doing to Anupama now. Don’t allow the story to get stupid like the others
Anupama also lost her daughter then why doesn’t get mad or crazy, she also heart broke u supposed to confront each other but what did you do?? What to broke ur relationship is that easy u even lost.
This is my advice to Anupama don’t even remarry anymore u aren’t a toy just keep change whenever it damaged
I am so sorry to say that Anuj turned out to be a disappointing character. He is acting as if little Anu is dead . He is an educated person but he is being selfish and cruel. Unforgiving
Mr Khanna, they have successfully ruined your character because they want to whitewash akka Sudhanshu Pandey.
So so true – Vanraj was smirking and throwing all kinds of comments knowing full well that him & his family are the one that helped to ruin this relationship
I feel so bad for this couple
This particular story line is very illogical
A very stupid storyline
I really don’t know what message they are trying to sell or tell here
No DNA test was done
The orphanage was not informed and they just hand over Choti Anu over to some random woman
With all their riches – he did not investigate Maya
Please these writers and producers think the viewers are stupid – so they are just spinning all kinds of crazy stories for us to eat up
A mature and calm do have their own share of weak n outburst moments. Like the new year day which was justified n not wrong in any sense.
But this present track n Anuj’s behaviour is no longer justified. He is insulting his wife, being jealous of her having children, questioning her motherhood, blaming her for caring for her kids, blaming her for not stopping CA which he himself didn’t try. Being a successful businessman failed to see maya’s true colour but blaming Anu for not understanding maya’s traps knowing how Anupama is. Suddenly claims to no longer love Anubcoz he lost his daughter. Than by that logic when Anupama’s children were against marriage than even Anu should have stopped loving him or when Toshu had a stroke at that time Anu should have also blamed him and questioned that “my son is paralysed and you want to go to picnic enjoy, u playing games n enjoying when I’m in pain.”
Nothing can give a clean chit to Anuj’s this behaviour which is arising doubts that did he genuinely love Anu or was he using her for adopting a child only.
Gaurav is right. Only few people are understanding anuj character and everyone has their own way of expressing their grief. Some may show lot of anger some may become fully silent some may keep theirselves busy with other things. But no one can deny anupama is also equally at fault as she didn’t really inform anuj about maya brainwashing the child and the child doing sacrifice under the influence of maya. She and anuj didn’t even conduct any DNA testing before letting maya to stay in K house. Anuj should compose himself and use his connections to find a good lawyer and he should try to adopt the child legally. As for anupama she needs to learn a lot. Usually people are very mature in their 40’s but anupama she just has to take therapy and learn a lot.
Sadly the writers have pooped on your character by showing no logic, and no basis for this track.
And now they’re spoiling you by putting you next to an actress who would overact if the wind blew her hair the wrong way
Hardly any difference between both characters, one left for child and another left for lover. There is something called common sense which is missing in Anuj’s character or he is attracted to Maya.
