I, Me, Myself! – Yuvraj Thakur!
We always wondered why the character of Arjun, inspite of being a parallel lead, is so popular especially among teenage girls? Well we got our answers when we met Yuvraj on the sets of Hum Se Hai Liife. In real life too, he is quite similar to Arjun (the character). He is sensitive, yet practical and grounded. His witty sense of humour makes every conversation and interview interesting. And above all, his sweet and humble nature makes him extremely adorable.
Rangmunch.TV brings to you an exclusive interview of Yuvraj Thakur aka Arjun of Channel V's Humse Hai Liife.
Rangmunch: What do you need to change about yourself?
Yuvraj: I have changed a lot. “Woh gusse wala phase bhi kam ho gaya hai.” So I have overcome that. I don’t think I want to change anything in me, but would say that I want to grow more as a person and learn more.
Rangmunch: What is your nickname?
Yuvraj: My friends call me Yuvi and my mamma, sisters and masi call me Munna. Its quite funny (laughs out embarrassingly). Many more names are there but they are very funny so I can’t tell you (laughs again).
Rangmunch: Are you possessive by nature?
Yuvraj: It depends actually. There are very few things in my life which I love the most, so I am quite possessive about them. I never like my mom touching my soccer stuff and football or even cleaning them. I always prefer to clean them myself.
Rangmunch: What irritates you?
Yuvraj: Smoking!!! People who smoke. Sometimes they blow that smoke right on your face. They don’t even realise if the person standing right beside them even likes the idea of smoking. I also don’t like people who misbehave in front of a woman, who don’t know how to talk and use abusive language.There are many more but these are major things that I can’t really stand.
Rangmunch: One crush which you outgrew and felt silly about it later?
Yuvraj: My sister’s best friend. She is like my didi (laughs with embarrassment). I used to admire her a lot when I was in 7th or 8th standard.After sometime I shifted to Bombay, so I couldn’t see her nor meet her. Then we met again when I was in 11th standard and I had a crush on her. I used to call her didi then too. I felt damn funny about it (laughing at his memory). Ultimately I even said to her “didi I used to feel for you in that lovey dovey sense.” We both laughed about it though and she still teases me.
Rangmunch : Has anyone played a prank on you?
Yuvraj: Ya, my friends do that all the time. I remember when I was in 10th standard, they called me for a party at a random place. On reaching the place I realised there was no one (laughs). And I also know why they did it. Whenever we used to play hide n seek, I used to tell all my friends to hide anywhere and I would find them all no matter what. As soon as they use to hide, I use to go home (laughing at the memory). “Raat ke barah baje unke mummy papa sab unhe dhoondh rahe thy. Toh unhone milke mujhse badla liya.” In the end I didn’t mind, coz everything was done in good spirits.
Rangmunch: Do you judge people?
Yuvraj: I used to before, but not now. I have grown as a person. I believe if you hate someone, you must really know that person well enough to do so.
Rangmunch: Do you complain?
Yuvraj: No, I don’t really complain. I even tell my friends on sets or even my college friends that you should not complain about things. Either take a charge of it and take an action for that, orelse take the responsibility. It is pointless complaining about things.
Rangmunch: As one grows in life the perceptions regarding love, relationship changes. As on today what kind of a girl would you as Yuvraj want?
Yuvraj: To be frank I have never thought about it. Well, I would want a girl who I love, I am comfortable with and be like the best buddy around. A true companion in every sense who would be there for me at all times.
Rangmunch: On a scale of 10 how happy are you right now?
Yuvraj: People normally write busy as their status message on their Blackberry. If you see my BB status, it says HAPPY. I am always happy no matter what. So right now I would rate it 9.
Rangmunch: One new year message for your fans.
Yuvraj: This is a very special year of my life as I got so many new friends. A very very Happy New Year to all my friends. Thank you for loving me and appreciating my work. Keep watching Humse Hai Life. All those who are preparing for their Exams, study hard because I was very bad at it (laughs). But “Humse Hai Life ke pehle books side mein rakh dena aur Humse Hai Life ke baad phir padhai shuru kar dena” (laughs again). Have loads of fun, keep smiling, keep loving each other, and keep loving me. Even if you don’t love me, I will still love you back.
Hope you all enjoyed reading the interview as much as we did!!
