‘Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah’ and ‘Saath Nibhana Saathiya’: What do they have in common?
They are just two of the several Gujarati shows on air currently that are doing extremely well
Gujarati culture came right into Indian drawing rooms with the popular television show Ek Mahal Ho Sapno Ka in 1999 and, after more than a decade, it is still one of the strongest flavours on the tube. Those based in Bihar, Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Haryana, Rajasthan and Maharashtra too abound on the small screen. Be it a weekly or a daily soap, the regional flavour is everywhere. But Gujarati shows dominate. Shows like Saath Nibhana Saathiya, Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah and Ram Milaayi Jodi are continuing the trend that started 13 years ago and hit a high with Baa Bahoo Aur Baby and Khichdi.

Tarana Raja: I’ve never regretted doing a Balaji show
Acting, hosting, radio-jockeying, dancing – what do you enjoy doing most?
I like doing it all. If you have tons of energy, you pretty much enjoy doing everything. I just cannot decide which one to focus on.
Does the lack of focus lead to problems?
It does. But it keeps me busy. It also doesn’t make me rely on any one stream of income. So you have ups and downs like everybody in the entertainment business has, but I usually keep myself safer by having that many different interests. Even if I may not have a show on the air, I would be still working…but that’s the good side. The flip side is that people sometimes get confused as to what to take you as – like a lot of people know me as RJ Tarana, and it’s a pleasant revelation (I hope) when they realise that I am also Neha from Bade Acche Lagte Hain. And the people who’ve known me as an actor all these years would have no clue that I am an RJ – unless they’re living in Mumbai. But I think of it as another dimension to me and it makes people happy. Click here to read more

A long and indirect one that began way back in 2003 with Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi
If you’ve seen Jodi Breakers, you will definitely remember a boxer who solicits help from Sid (R Madhavan) and Sonali (Bipasha Basu) so that he can divorce his wife. Did he seem familiar to you?
