We can`t get over the fact yet that we are not seeing ever so charming and handsome star from Mrs.Mukhyamantri everyday with our parents and secretly blushing and also finding ourselves totally crushing on this star Tejas Barve.We are not so secretly stalking him on social media too!
We are so sorry boys but Tejas Barve is just raising the bar higher with his smile and looks that can kill! (I know most of you girls can relate to this and are jealous if you are a boy!)
From Zindagi not out to Mrs.Mukhyamantri his eyes did the magic, so his acting touched many hearts with his roles that made him a household name.
So for you guys I asked some Real questions to the actor while wishing we met in person!
Was acting your forever passion ya waqt ne kiya kya haseen sitam?
I can`t say it was passion but I loved to mimic people around me, my teachers, my parents but I had no idea I would be an actor some day and this helped me later on! But I was somehow always attached to art whether be in music form(I used to play Tabla) or acting in fests later on.
Which role you love to play onscreen?
I don`t have such list of roles I like playing, I try to play every role I get convincingly. that I like playing some particular role. I love to explore the versatility as an actor. And fortunately I have got different roles to play in my journey whether that be a teenage boy from Zindagi Not Out or a obeying son and a husband balancing two roles in Mrs.Mukhyamantri. I have loved playing every role from my heart.
Who is your favourite from the industry?
I can`t choose one because I haven`t taken any course in acting as such but through out the journey I learnt it from various actors from Laxmikant Berde to some budding artists, my journey has been graced by every actor out there. But for a special mention Sushant Singh Rajput have inspired me a lot and I relate to him a lot. Also not to forget, Shah Rukh Khan has great influence on my life and thoughts, he is someone I have always looked upto.
How was it being a Zee face?
Its every artists dream to work on Zee and fortunately I have worked for Zee Yuva as well as Zee Marathi. I am very thankful to Zee because due to Zee I reached almost every household in Maharashtra. As a child we always have a dream to feature under Zee banner and of course for me it was a dream come true moment.
Which Bollywood character you would love playing online?
There are many roles that I would like to play and I am well aware that to reach that level of acting it would take a lot of time but if given a chance it would be some Amir Khan role because I find his movies unique and worth watching say Akash from Dil Chahta Hai, you need to potray that character in such a manner that it wouldn`t look vulgar nor Sober. So I would definitely like to hop into something like that.
What was your experience while struggling in the initial days? Did you thought that this would come so far
I did various plays in my 11th and 12th. The first year of my college I participated in every event I can because I thought it was my last year to do so and from second year I took external because as a normal middle class student I wanted to settle down so immediately after that I started to interview for companies in Pune. Never thought I would take my acting this level seriously and pursue acting as my full-time career it was all destiny I guess.
How does it feel to be more samar than Tejas barve ?
Actually I guess being summer is a responsible task because he is one of the ideal personalities we can find and also in the serial summer is always under the pressure and very opposite at my house atmosphere is more friendly. But with samar he was always under pressure but still calm, composed and sweet. Of course there are many similarities between us and that is the reason I could play samar other more convincingly on screen
Do you watch yourself on screen what are your thoughts on it?
No I don’t usually watch myself on screen I don’t like to actually! When someone tells me that this scene you have played brilliantly then I watch it and also if someone tells me that this scene can be improved I watch it just to see what improvements were needed in the scene.I usually think watching your self on screen again and again limits yourself to yourself and you can’t explore more and more.
What are your ultimate goals in this acting career?
Ultimate goal is to explore various characters to tell different stories to play some challenging roles convincingly and more importantly it is important that you yourself and acting well playing a role along with the audience. So ultimate goal is to explore and prepare myself to be a better actor.
What message would you like to give to your fans?
Thank you Tejas Barve for taking out time to know more about you!

Apart from studies she was also highly interested in extracurricular activities during her school days and now Priyadeep Kaur is a published author at age of 19.
Q. When did your journey into writing began?
Priyadeep: “I am fond of writing back from school days. My grandmother passed away, I found dairy of dad- he had written a poem dedicated to his mom. The poem was very heart touching and emotional. So, I felt like I should also start writing, then I started writing small poems and about things happening around. Then I also started writing parodies on teachers just to express my thoughts. When I was in grade 10, then I started compiling my writings together. That time I use to read novels from ‘Chetan Bhagat’, ‘Nikita Singh’ and from many other novelists too. So, at that time I thought should try writing a book. That’s how the journey started.”
Q. When did you realised that you should be a writer and your writing should get published?
Priyadeep: “Actually, as soon I completed my first book writing, actually I started writing that book when I was in the 11th grade. So, I at that time it was bit hard for me to get things done in a commercial way to get my book published and it took lot of time for that. Then I started doing research how to get book published and I also mailed my work to many publishers. So, I got few replies and with one of the publishers I got my book published. And soon it was available for reading.”
Q. What was the most surprising thing you learned while writing novels?
Priyadeep: “I learnt my things from my novels and one thing I want to mentioned is – there is very slight difference between the things we imagine and things which really happen. I think people who are into writing are a kind of overthinkers, they think a lot. They think from different perspective and try to create an anonymous situation out from it. Being writer, I imagine many things but they are not into real life. So, its very important to keep imaginary world and real life separately and keep the things sorted.”
Q. A person can’t be a writer if he/she doesn’t have strong emotion, what are your views?
Priyadeep: “I would not agree on this personally, but a person can be a writer if they are not good grammar, even if they are not having a particular knowledge of language and to portrait things. Emotions are necessary for writing; we need to feel the situations in that particular way. Although very body has emotions it’s not necessary that to be a writer you should have strong emotions, with time and practise you can achieve it. I agree emotions play a vital role in writing and every one of us have emotions and everybody can write.”
Q. What was your childhood dream?
Priyadeep: “I wanted to be singer actually, that was my childhood dream. When I was 4 years old, my dad introduced me to pandit Anurag dixit. He uses to conduct my classical music classes and I was fond of performing in school and at many other places. So later I started to go in shows and started performing at very small age. I also used to sing local songs at that time. Since 12 grade I started performing- singing and also recorded few songs. At that time, I was also busy into writing and getting book published. So, writing made me feel somethings, like that’s what I want to be. So, I continued by writing.”
Q. What are the techniques and strategies you keep in your mind while you are writing?
Priyadeep: “Actually I try my best to justify the title, which I have given to the book. I think title should be always justifying. Then draft your story accordingly so you can keep the track of it. So, I make the points and draft and then start writing the book, so it’s easy for me if I need to add on few things in between. Mainly I focus on the words and vocabulary add it accordingly. I prefer to sketch the character and his nature, so its easy to maintain and build the story.”
Q. Generally how long does it take to complete a book?
Priyadeep: “My first book I completed in six months. And it took lot of time to complete my second book, because I have joined the office and started working at production house in Chandigarh. Now I am launching my next book, so it took me around 3 months to complete it, which I stared writing during lockdown. So, it’s in pipeline and will be out soon. Although it depends on the time and story to complete a book, it may differ from writer to writer.”
Q. How was your experience working with Badshah sir as a creative producer?
Priyadeep: “It was a very nice experience; I had a wonderful time with the team. We also shoot few songs and I learned lot of things about real life and reel life. I determined the people are so much different in real life, then we usually see in reel life. Specifically talking about BADSHAH sir, as we see his personification in songs, he is completely different in real life. He is very sweet, innocent and humble person. In real, he is not much interested into parties. He is very hardworking and fully dedicated to his work. The whole team was amazing, I got few friends too and the overall journey was awesome for me. I learnt many things from them.”
Q. Can you tell us about the moment when you meet Shri. Narendra Modi (Prime minister of India) and you and your work recognised by him?
Priyadeep: “It was an awesome moment for me, I am very grateful for that. Talking about my family they have framed the photographs and pinned to wall everywhere in my house. For them it was a very proud moment. For me it was a very happy and different kind of adventurous moment. I wrote a letter to PM office randomly and unexpectedly I got response to launch my book by him. I think that was one of the best moments as of now in my writing journey.”
Q. What are your future plans?
Priyadeep: “My next book is coming in November and I am also doing a freelance work in Chandigarh right now, it’s a project of 6 months. So, need to go to Ahmedabad for that work. I have completed two more books in lockdown so I will be planning about there editing and publishing. Due to covid I have many projects pending, so when things will settle need to complete the projects and shoots.”

We had an awesome interview session with her on Paradox. She shared her story and views during the live interview session. Here we would love to share an interview with you.
Q. When you started your journey as a singer?
“My Mom and dad have an institute, so some of my friends from the institute, filled out my form for the Indian idol junior. There was no preplanning – luckily, I was selected from Lucknow and then I went to Delhi. I was qualified and received a golden ticket to Mumbai. There were 3 theatre rounds in Mumbai and I cleared 2 of them. At that time a felt bad but then I realised I have to do something in singing that will make my parents feel proud. Then I realised reality shows were the opportunity for me. Soon in 2016 I participated in voice India kids season 1 and the journey being a singer was started with blessings of many people.”
Q. Which was the first song you prepared for your first audition?
“Sorry but at that time I was little young and now I am not able to recall the song particularly. But during the super star singer there I was, which I have uploaded on you-Tube called ‘Ghar more pardesiya’. This song received lot of love from people and crossed 1 MILLION views. Many people loved that song and I would love to sing few lines of it”.
Q. What were your obstacles during this musical journey and how you faced that situation?
“Talking about the obstacles there no such a big obstacle till now, with God’s grace and people blessings everything is going fine. But when was part of a reality show I realised I don’t have a collection of prepared songs, that time it was bit tough for me but soon later I stared working on songs and listening more songs. There was rejection in audition at many points but I think that’s part of journey. I believe rising and learning up for the failures is the key to achieve everything you dreamt of. If you are bouncing back to achieve something in life, for sure the god will be by your side.”
Q. During your journey how social media helped you or what’s the importance of social media in your journey?
“I wasn’t much aware of the social media in initial days but soon after voice I started being on social media. It really helps me to connect with people out there. So, I can connect with them, talk with them. I feel very happy when I see the love coming out from fan pages and people out there and always think it’s only the mean that have connected many people with me which I wasn’t aware of. I feel very blessed to get such a bag of love from people and I try to interact with many people. Social media is my partner which helps me to send my love and gratitude to all the people via my songs. And thanks all of you being part of journey and I love you all”.
Q. If you were not into singing then in which field you would be?
“I am good at studies; you will not believe but I am among the studious students. If was not into singing then I would definitely achieve something big into this field. I am kind of person who likes to happen things according to me. It like I say then soon people should do it or listen to me. So being good at studies I think I would be a CEO of a company or something like that.”
Q. How you manage to balance your music and studies simultaneously?
“Actually, my mom and dad always thought me the importance of the studies in life. I know the studying will actually help you a lot, to know more about things and it will upgrade our vision to see world. Studying is as important as music in my life. Talking truly education is base and music are my toppings. I give nearly equal time to both the things. It not hard to manage the things when you actually love to do them, so you will never find any excuses to cut off your studies. Yea I love doing it.”
Q. What are your future plans?
“I was part of reality shows. I won the voice and I was among finalist in one. Then recently I was been announced as a brand ambassador of ‘beti baccho beti padao’. I wanted to do something unforgettable in singing field and always dream to see myself in the list of top singers. I always wanted to be a playback singer and I am pretty active on social media I keep posting the contents. Its pleasure to be able to connect to people who follows me for the music and entertainment and keep them entertained all the time with my music.”
Q. Whom do you consider as role models?
“Talking about models there are many personalities out there. I keep learning from many of them and learned many things from my mom and dad. As I mentioned I wanted to be playback singer. So, I wanted to be like Latta ji, Asha ji, Shreya ji. I get motivation from them and wanted to achieve something like them in my life.”
Q. As you are the brand ambassador of ‘beti bachoo beti padao’ so how you look up to it? what you want to tell us about this thing?
“actually, this was announced when I was in the Mumbai at that time. When I came back from the Mumbai there was a ceremony and I was told now you are the brand ambassador. So, from that day my motive was, there is more importance of the girls in every field. We should support the girls. There are many places where the girls are not given a chance to follow their passion and not even a support to do things in life.
I always try to encourage the girls and make people aware of things by arranging multiple virtual meets. I think everyone should get encouragement including young and old peoples out there to do something in their life. They have this right but just they are unaware of it. I try to spread awareness and encouragement among the masses. During the session many people says I wanted to be like Nishtha but I always say be I wish you achieve everything you wanted to be and not like but more than that.”
Q. What are views on feminism as because many people out there are taking it in a wrong way? what do you think about it?
“I think there should be no discrimination. I always say everyone has own rights. The boys have their own rights and girls have them too. I think sometimes the things gets messed up, people take it in a wrong way. Recently I was called at the event and there was I long jump competition, the girls and boys both of them participated into it. They asked me my views on competition. I said want to appreciate all of them as because everyone has done a hard work to achieve it. The boys and girls have done same amount of hard work. I don’t want it to happen that the hard work and achievements of boys should get dissolve they should be appreciated for that and girls too.
I think both of them are on same side and will walk together at every step. Everyone should be given equal rights and respect, actually they have the rights. And it happens sometimes people take it in little wrong way but soon everyone will understand this thing with time.”
