Heartthrobs Barun Sobti and Zain Imam very recently appeared on Rajeev Khandelwal’s chat show JuzzBaatt.
Needless to say, that the most hyped episode of the show lived up to the expectations of the viewers as well.
The trio had meaningful discussions of the crime rate of Delhi, the reputation of their hometown, the industry needs in terms of beauty and talent, a little bit about their love lives and also the professional struggles both of them had to endure to reach the stature where they are today.
Below are some of the handpicked excerpts in Hindi and as and the way the actors said in the show. In case you missed watching the show, we can guarantee you these excerpts will touch your heart.
1.On How Important Is ‘Good Looks’
Zain : Humaari industry mein I think (good looks) hona zaroori hai, but talent hona bhi zaroori hai. Sirf good looks doesn’t work.
Barun : Agar beauty pe based hoga khaali to aap as an actor sirf apna youth survive kar sakte ho kyunki youth mein har koi achcha dikhta hai. Agar aapko as an actor survive karna hai, I think zindagi mein bhi survive karna hai, to apna dimaag to use karna hi padega har cheeze mein.
Zain : Beauty temporary hai, I would say.
2.On Difference Between Men In Delhi And Bombay (Mumbai)
Rajeev : Jo ladki Delhi se aati hai woh Bombay mein bada safe mehsoos karti hai. Delhi jaao to kahaan jaa rahe ho? Kitne baje waapas aaoge? Akele mat jaao…..
Barun : Humaare liye darr rahe the mom and dad.
Zain : Main abhi bhi Delhi jaata hun to main darrta hun. Matlab raat ko 10 baje ke baad mujhe aisa lagta hai main kahaan khada hun, lights nahi hai, andhera hai…..lights hain bhi, log nahi hai, kuch dikh nahi raha. Aapne jaise kaha, koi ladki aati hai Mumbai mein, to woh safe feel karti hai. So probably, yahaan pe jo transportation hai, yahaan pe jo mentality hai, woh far better hai than probably in Delhi.
Barun : Mentality to definitely better hai. If you are driving on the road, aisa nahi dikhega ki har koi, ek dusre se ladaai karne ki koshish kar raha hai. Road rage bahut zyada hai (in Delhi).
3.Does The Reputation Of Your Hometown Hurt You?
Barun : Forget Delhi. India ke liye lagta hai kitni baar. Matlab log sochte hain ki Indians hi saare aise hote hain….It was New Year’s. I was in Singapore. There was an Englishman who came and everyone was celebrating New year’s. So he was like where are you from. I said, India. So he said, ohhh the rape capital of the world! It was very embarrassing.
4.About Love Life –
Barun : First time I saw her (Barun’s wife Pashmeen) was in 9th std. Uske baad 11th std mein hum log ikatthe aa gaye. She was in Australia for 5 years, studying and working. Mekko woh time dena chahti thi ki tu settle down ho jaa career mein. Haala ki woh settle down thi already Australia mein aur main easily move ho sakta tha.
Zain : Yaar main ek baat bataaun? Media 4\ 4.5 saal mein aaj tak nahi pata lagaa paayi, aapko lagta hai aap ek show mein mujhse pata kar loge?! (laughs)
5.About Zain Not Getting To Stay On Rent In Mumbai
Zain : Ek waqt aisa tha ki, due to some reason, ghar chodna pada tha. Main aur mera jo friend tha, Abhilash, hum bachpan ke dost hain. Abhi bhi saath mein hi hain. To ek dum se landlord ne bol diya ki aapko raat ko hi ghar khaali karna hai. Main apne friend ke yahaan raha, woh industry se nahi hai, hum log wahaan pe rahe ek hafte. Uski na ek woh Esteem hua karti thi uss time, Maruti Suzuki Esteem. To main aur woh nikal jaaya karte the, raat ko, subah ko, dopahar ko ki bhai ghar dhundna hi dhundna hai. Guards ke paas jaate the, bolte the ki yaar koi direct ghar hai to bataa de, bahut bhalaa hoga tera, paise le liyo, 10,000-15,000 rupaye le lo bas ek ghar bataa do agar koi ghar khaali ho to.
Barun : That’s a lot of money to offer, itne mein ghar kyun nahi mila?
Zain : Humaare paas paise bhi the uss time. Hum dena chahte the, hum brokerage de bhi rahe the. Problem yeh aayi ki jahaan ek aadh ghar final ho gaya tha, to society meeting mein kehte the ki yaar aap to industry se hain, aap single hain, aapko ghar kaise de de? Agar ek owner ready ho jaata tha ghar dene ke liye, society meeting mein bhi accept ho jaata tha, paise bhi de diye, brokerage bhi de diya, sab de diya.
Ab naam aata tha. Rent agreement mein dono ka naam tha, Abhilash Kumar aur Zain. Pehla bandaa Abhilash Kumar. Chalo ok. Dusra banda jo reh raha hai aapke saath uska kya naam hai? Uska naam Zain Imam. To woh Muslim Hai? Paise waapas le jaao aap, nahi milega ghar. Manaa kar diya. Bahut jadojahad ke baad ek didi mili, jo broker thi humaari, unhone ek ghar dilaaya jahaan main dhaai saal (2.5 years) se reh raha hun.
