Since I was 15, my wife and I are together-Avinash Rekhi


*“Since I was 15, my wife and I are together, she is my only girlfriend” reveals Tere Bina Jiya Jaye Na’s Avinesh Rekhi*

Zee TV’s show Tere Bina Jiya Jaye Na, with its engaging and intriguing storyline, has kept the audience at the edge of their seats since its launch. The show follows the story of Krisha Chaturvedi (Anjali Tatrari) and Devraj Singh Rathore (Avinesh Rekhi), and their extraordinary and mysterious love story is winning the hearts of its viewers.

Along with having a strong fan following among the audience, Avinesh Rekhi has always been in talks for keeping his personal life private. However, in a candid conversation, he spilled beans about his reasons for maintaining a balance between his private and professional life, and also shared that he only dated one woman that too in school and she is now the mother of their two cute little children, Raisa Nanda Rekhi.

Talking about keeping his personal life private, Avinesh said, “Even though I portray the character of an angry young man, I am a complete family man. I don’t like showing off my family to the public, and when I am with them, I neither entertain any publicity nor am I the person people assume me to be. I barely open up about my personal life, which helps me maintain the balance between my professional and personal life. I don’t have many friends from Mumbai or the TV industry, most of them are my wife’s friends. So whenever, I get time I take my family for a get-together. Whatever time I have, I like to spend it with my family.”

He further added, “I am a father of two – a son, and a daughter. I’ve always been a friend to my son and first crush to my daughter. I believe I was always a one-woman man, and since I was 15, my wife and I have been together. She is my only girlfriend. That’s how sentimental I am. She was the first woman I ever had a relationship with.”

Well, isn’t that adorable?!

While Krisha and Devraj are gradually coming closer, wait till you see how the drama unfolds in the upcoming episodes. Is this the beginning of their love story? Or will Devraj’s stubbornness transform Krisha into Maya and tear them apart?

      Every contestant has been fighting tooth-and-nail every day to secure a place in the finale by becoming a VIP on COLORS’ ‘BIGG BOSS’. To turn up the heat in this ‘Weekend Ka Vaar’, former contestant Gauahar Khan enters the house and gets the ball of fire rolling. She asks the housemates to name the person who they don’t believe to be their competition and doesn’t deserve to be in the ‘TOP 3’. Tejasswi and Nishant promptly begin locking horns as she names the latter and adds that he doesn’t have any identity in the show. “Inhone aaj tak koi strong connect nahi banaya hai sivay unke OTT friends ke saath”, she states. Nishant fires back and says, “Inhe na game ki samajh hai, na yahaan rehne ki samajh!” As their battle of words rages on, it will be intriguing to see whether their fight will evolve into another strong rivalry of this season.

      Our ‘Dabangg’ host Salman Khan enters the stage and wastes no time in schooling the contestants on their behaviour seen in this past week. The first in line to face his fire is Rakhi, who has been adding a lot of fuel to the fire between her fellow housemates. Salman asks her, “Aapko itna sab kuch kaise pata hai? Aur jo show ko conduct kar raha hai, unko bhi nahi pata?” The host then goes after Tejasswi, who has been picking a fight with everyone this week. Salman questions her on why she believes that everyone is against her, and eventually uses it to play the sympathy card. She has also been raising questions on the channel itself which has not gone down well with Salman. He grills her saying, “Aap is channel ke baare mein kosti rehti ho. Aapka har kosna dikhaya jaa raha hai, jo public ko bilkul pasand nahi aa raha!” Tejasswi tries to defend herself, but a furious Salman is in no mood for her excuses. How will Tejasswi survive Salman’s burning line of questions?

      It’s amazing to see how non dancers also bring out the best of their dancing potential during Navratri” – Srishty Rode


      The festival of Navratri is all about colours, dandiya, garba, togetherness and positive vibes, and while the pandemic has restricted the physical celebrations this year, lots of memories from the vibrant festival are being remembered through tons of throwbacks!

      Being an absolute dance lover, actress Srishty Rode is missing Navratri celebrations quite a lot! Srishty is missing dressing up and going to all the dandiya and garba events around the city, which she would thoroughly enjoy to the fullest!

      Speaking about her cherished Navratri memories, Srishty shares,”Navratri is such a fun and vibrant festival and one which has always brought with it amazing vibes every single year. Navratri radiates positivity, lots of light, love and togetherness among people, and while celebrations are going to be at a halt this year, the spirit is still very much alive. I am someone who loves dancing and in the past have attended a lot of dandiya and garba nights with my friends, which I am sadly going to miss attending this year. I just love observing how people get into the spirit of dancing so whole heartedly and with full zest while playing dandiya and garba! It’s amazing to see how non dancers also bring out the best of their dancing potential during Navratri, because of their love and passion for the festival which is beautiful to watch! I am also missing dressing up in that typical traditional attire when going for these events, as that was something I really enjoyed doing, and pray and hope that next year gives us all the chance to celebrate Navratri in full spirit.”

We will be shooting across Lucknow, including at heritage structures like palaces and colleges,” informs director Milap Zaveri, who is all praise for the Uttar Pradesh government. “Some of the live locations will be completely sealed off, so crowd gazers cannot sneak in.
