Gurmeet Chaudhary and Debina Bonnerjee, who played Sita and Ram in Ramayan, will soon be seen together again in the new reality show Pati Patni Aur Woh.
They were not only the perfect onscreen couple, Gurmeet and Debina have been in an off-screen romantic relationship for over four years, which they kept under wraps during the shooting of Ramayan. “It was a great opportunity to play Ram and Sita, but we couldn’t talk about it then. It’s okay now because the show revolves around our relationship. We will be in front of cameras all day with a child, and we have to manage for at least a month,” says Gurmeet. “We will not be acting in the show, so that’s one thing we are really looking forward to.”
Debina has her apprehensions, but trusts Gurmeet’s skills. “I do not know if I can manage kids or not but you (Gurmeet) will surely be able to do it,” she says. “We don’t know if we’ll get a boy or a girl but we will have to take care of whoever comes.” Gurmeet adds, “I hope things go smoothly and people will like us as parents. It is a good show, there is no bitching, or eating of insects; audiences too will come to know how difficult it is to take care of a kid, it will be useful for them too.”
The couple has no experience of handling kids. “We’ve only interacted with Luv and Kush during the Ramayan shoot, and that too just for six hours,” says Gurmeet. “Debina has been telling everyone that we will live happily with a kid but it will be difficult to handle it when the kid goes away. There is a god in each and every child.” As the couple will have to manage on a limited budget, Debina is happy that Gurmeet will have to cook because he won’t have a choice. She says, “He is not even ready to learn now. He thinks he will be able to learn it there. It’s not that easy, though I’m ready to eat burnt food too.”
Both actors went through a lot of tests to check their suitability as parents, before getting onto the show. “The production house and channel have taken a lot of effort. We went for medical check-ups and psychological tests. Neither by accident or deliberation will we hurt the kid,” says Debina. “There will be 24-hour observation and people behind the cameras who can handle a crisis. Their parents are also going to be on the sets. If anyone is going to be under pressure, it’s going to be us.”
