Samir Kochhar got married. This Delhi based model cum actor who first tasted big success with ‘Jannat’ recently tied knot with long time girl friend Radhika and the marriage ceremony was held on January 8, 9 in Goa.
"We have been going around for the past three and a half years. She was a producer of one of my televison shows and is now an event manger.”
Talking about the ceremony which had take place in Goa, Samir says, “We had an exotic beach wedding which was attended by close family friends and well wishers from the industry.” So, were there any pre wedding jitters? “Yes, I was nervously excited,” says Samir, who goes on to do a couple of naughty private talks. “My friends in Delhi are planning some big naughty bachelor’s party,” he laughs. He loves to talk about sex for he is hosting a second season of his bold chat show ‘Dangerous on Zoom Now’ renamed ‘Closer Now’.
Post marriage, Samir has two back to back releases i.e. Hide N Seek under the production banner of Apporva Lakhia and second is Jagmohan Mundra’s Chase. The first is an entrapment kind of thriller where Samir along with five other actors get kidnapped and are brought to a shopping mall. “Everybody suspects the other till the end unravels. This coming of age format movie has been the kind of work I have wanted to do for a while,” exclaims Samir.
In Chase, he plays an undercover assassin who is appointed by the government to clean up some very big mess. “Anuj Saxena (actor and producer) and Udita Goswami are my co-stars in this action paced thriller. It was fun working with the latter again after Zehar. I really enjoyed doing chasing stunts and jumping from buildings as my character chased Anuj throughout the movie".
Let’s hope 2010 bring good news for Samir both personally and professionally. “You have to go with the flow; hard core planning does not work. It was tougher for me to break in Bollywood, as no one in my family had ever ventured in the film fraternity; both my folks are doctors, he ends.
Samir will too be hosting the ‘IPL Season 3’
