After a long wave of rumors and gossips, actor Farhan Khan, Manav of Chhan Chhan has finally been replaced by the model turned actor Anuj Sachdeva. In our previous articles, we had informed you about the buzz going around about Farhan’s replacement. Whereas Farhan himself always refused to accept those rumors, the production house, Optimistix, also didn’t made any official announcement until the things got to the final stage.
It has been said that the discomfort level between Farhan and Sanaya, the show had been struggling to get the pace, and it seems that the makers has finally realized to take the necessary steps to save the show and to respect the popular demand. The lack of chemistry between Farhan and Sanaya, the lead pair of Chhan Chhan, the show has been experiencing low TRPs and negative feedbacks from the audiences. In such conditions, would Anuj’s entry be proved as a savior to the show? In his own words, Anuj says, “"Well, that's the catch. Many known actors were approached for this particular role, and may be they were not keen on doing it or considered it as a bad call. Any which way, if I wouldn't then someone else would have grabbed the opportunity. Knowing well about the dipping TRPs of the show, Chhanchhan is a challenge for me.”
Anuj Sachdeva, the Punjabi munda of Delhi, who made his TV debut with MTV’s Rodies Season 3 and was also gathered a lot of appreciation with his role of Amrit in the Star Plus show Sabki Ladli Bebo. Anuj had has also been engaged in many Bollowood projects. Sharing his experience in the Industry by now, Anuj said, ““My journey began in 2004, I was based out of Delhi then and helping out my father with his shoe business. We design shoes and handcraft them and I have trained professionally in the art. I also have my own line of stilettos called Ions, though my modeling career has forced me to push that option into the background,” Anuj has been offered films, but he has been very choosy about the projects he does and prefers to now focus on his TV career.”
“While ads have made me famous, I’ve also done serials and I am currently shooting for a serial on Zee TV called Phir Subah Hogi. My career with television began a few years ago when I was cast in a role inSaabki Laadli Bebo, as Bebo’s husband. There has been no turning back since,” adds Anuj, smiling.”
Talking about his first day at the shoot of Chhan Chhan, Anuj says, “I had watched some of the beginning episodes of the show so I was a little familiar with the story-line. "On the sets, my first shot was that of a wedding sequence opposite Sanaya Irani. It was good, and everything went well."
Anuj’s entry, in the show, along with the wedding sequel of Manav and Chhan Chhan, the excitement is on the rise. We hope that with these latest reforms and talented actors, AnNaya, the show will touch the new dimensions and Anuj and Sanaya’s Jodi will rock the screen.
