Back in 2006, while switching the channels, i came across this handsome young boy in an interview about his then about to release movie Mehndi Waale Hath and i was very impressed when i came to know about his educational and family background. Everything made him look so genuine. It felt great to see someone from Punjab representing Punjabi in such a gentleman way and somehow he seemed very accessible, so i decided to send him a mail. i must admit i wasn’t expecting that it would ever reach him and he would ever reply back even if he got it. But i thought if someone is doing some good, I must appreciate it in my own way even if that person gets it or not and Lo ! It reached him !! Not just that, he even replied back and to cut the long story short, we started exchanging mails quite often. This all happened before the birth of punjabiportal.
After a while he got busy with his television projects and we somehow lost contact. I used to feel so happy while watching him making a mark in Television industry with his serials like Mohe Rang De and number of top-notch ad commercials and every now and then used to send him the mails but as he was very busy, he could never reply back and I got busy with pp and we totally lost track of one another. But then back in 2010, out of the blue I received a mail from Gavie explaining how he was busy with his new projects and he expressed his appreciation for what we’ve done through punjabiportal. Infact, he joined pp and sent these lovely pictures that we have shared below.
And today again i got this email of his, sharing the great news of another milestone in his career. Yes !!
