It was an extreme relief for his fans when they got to know that the superstar is back in action and is all set to shoot for his show. The actor was recently in the news for opting out of the ongoing reality show 'Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa' because of his injuries. Sources from the set have confirmed that the actor is back in action for the shoot for his show. It is not just him back in action but it is also the day when Dheeraj's show with Surbhi Chandana 'Sherdil Shergill' goes on air. It will be an opportunity for all his fans and followers to watch him back on their respective television screens after quitting his previous show 'Kundali Bhagya'. The actor is still recuperating from his injuries but being the professional that he is, he is not letting this affect his professional commitments.  Dheeraj plays a very different character in the show which will give everyone a sneak peek into various dimensions of his personality.

12-hour shifts leave TV soap actors with no personal life: Pratiksha Rai

After playing important characters in 'Udaan' and 'Pavitra Bhagya', Pratiksha Rai is now seen as the antagonist in 'Nath - Zewar Ya Zanjeer'. She talks how demanding televisions soaps are, the kind of response she is getting from the audience, and how different she is from the negative character she plays. Shooting for a daily soap, Pratiksha said, can be quite challenging. Long hours at work leave an actor with hardly any time for personal chores. "You don't get time to focus on your personal life. Recently, I shot for a heavy-duty track because of which I didn't get time for my workout or even to call my parents. When you work for a daily soap, you don't get time to groom yourself, you don't get holidays and you end up shooting for more than 12 hours every day. "But you also get a lot in return, especially recognition. So, it is indeed difficult and one must learn to balance work with one's personal life," Pratiksha pointed out. Also Read: Birthday Chat With Celebs : Chunky Panday Delving into her character, she shared the audience response: "I get both good and negative comments. People write that I am extremely bad, as I have come between the lead couple (Chahat Pandey and Avinash Mishra) and torture their children. I want to tell them that I am nothing like Kaajal. I dote on kids." She added: "I am glad that people take the character so seriously and appreciate my acting. But I still have a long way to go. I am proud that people know me from my character and wonder whether I am like the character in real life. I am grateful for the opportunity," she adds. So, is she anything like her character? Pratiksha replies: "Everyone has a dark side. I am not jealous like Kaajal. My father always taught me not to compete with others and hence, I don't feel the emotion of jealousy ever. Kaajal can go to any extent to achieve what she has set out for. While I can never be mean, I relate to her junoon (craziness) of accomplishing her goals." Also Read: Watch video!

Speaking about the toughest part of the show he said, "Learning the steps! It's a two and half to three minute routine but its six-seven sets.

A still from 'Ravivaar with Star Parivaar'

'Anupamaa came and hugged me after the performance,' Bharti Singh

Bharti Singh will be gracing the grand finale episode of 'Ravivaar with Star Parivaar'. Popular comedian and internet personality, Bharti Singh, will completely transform into nation's favorite 'Maa', Anupamaa.  Bharti Singh has never shied away from gigantic tasks when it comes to comedy and portraying spoofs of various characters, some created by herself. In the Grand finale of 'Ravivaar with Star Parivaar', we see a complete transformation of Bharti Singh into Indian television's favorite 'Maa', Anupamaa.  Yes, you heard it right! Rupali Ganguly has been portraying the role of Anupama for a long time now and the show is as loved as she is. So, it is fair to say that spoofing this iconic role will require another legendary actress, Bharti Singh. Their bond is perfectly seen in the Grand finale episode of 'Ravivaar with Star Parivaar', as Bharti Singh turns into Anupama on the stage with Harsh Limbachiyaa as 'Vanraj'. Let's hear it from Bharti Singh about how she feels embodying Anupama for the first time ever.  Bharti Singh gets candid about her performance as Anupama on Ravivaar with Star Parivaar, "This was a complete shock for me too. To actually perform as Anupamaa, I had to match Rupali Ganguly and her spirit while portraying the character. I didn't think that I would be able to match her at all, because she's such a good artist, such an excellent actress. I took it as a funny gag, and I enjoyed it a lot. Harsh became 'Vanraj' and that was hilarious too. When Rupali Ganguly stood up and came to me, she hugged me and told me it was a big deal that I, Bharti, am performing the spoof of Anupama. This made me realize how much she respects me and it was absolutely amazing to hear her say it. Anupama has been on top as always, and I wish it remains at the top for a long long time. And lots of love to Rupali Ganguly Ji, as she's a really good artist."
