Rajiv-Aamna in their element on 'Deal Ya No Deal'
By Subhash K. Jha, Indo-Asian News Service
Mumbai, June 12 (IANS) Everybody is talking about TV stars Rajiv Khandelwal and Aamna Sharif's 'very special bonding' on Sony's game show "Deal Ya No Deal".
"She's born on July 16. I am born on Oct 16. I guess the common birth date could've something to do with our compatibility," Rajiv told IANS. Incidentally, the episode is being telecast June 16.
"I recorded an episode of the game show with Aamna because it was the channel's special request. Everyone thought if there was one guest I must have on the show, it is Aamna (the two were a hit pair in the soap 'Kahiin To Hoga'). So I went the whole hog.
"I did flirt with her outrageously. But I also screamed at Aamna because she just wouldn't let me talk. I am so warm and comfortable with her that I can flirt with her even when her mother is around," said Rajiv.
That's exactly what he did on the game show. He flirted till it hurt. He cracked jokes, stared meaningfully at her and offered himself to Aamna as part of the deal.
"I could do all this in front of Aamna's mom because her mom knows my intentions are noble. In fact, when her mother was wheeled in it was a wonderful moment of surprise for me. I had no idea she was coming."
Does Rajiv realise that their exceptional camaraderie on screen will fuel more speculation about heir relationship?
"It can't be helped. If people think we are a real-life couple, so be it. I think they are still reacting to us as Sujal and Kashish the characters we played in 'Kahiin To Hoga'. I am not denying Aamna and I are very close friends. It's there for everyone to see on 'Deal Ya No Deal'."
