Gurmeet Choudhary became an extremely popular name after he played Ram in one of the recent versions of Ramayan. He and Debina Bonerjee played the lead and they also tied the knot in real life. But another show that gave Gurmeet immense popularity was Geet: Huyi Sabse Parayi. We was loved as Mann Singh Khurana. But even though Gul Khan had called him to audition for the role herself, he had to audition for 10-12 times since the others weren’t convinced.

Now that the show will be aired once again, Gurmeet Choudhary revisted the memories of the serial and recalled that he had to go through a tough ordeal to land the role. Talking to Spotboye, he revealed that he had auditioned for the role 10-12 times. He said, “I almost auditioned 10-12 times for it and everytime the channel was rejecting me and asking for more options. But Gul had made up her mind that it will be only me who will play the lead and no one else. And at one point of time, I also thought that kya mazak chal raha hai, I can easily pull off the character, then why are they looking for more options. Har do din mein audition ke liye bulate phir bolte nahi hua yaar.”
And do you know what finally made the rest agree that he is perfect for the role? Well, that’s his chemistry with co-star Drashti Dhami and his abs and chiseled body. He elaborated and said, “the channel decided to do a proper mock shoot with Drashti and me. And in that shoot, I had some bare body shots as the show was being made for a channel which was youth centric. They wanted someone with some good abs and all. And that time also, I was into fitness and I had that. Also, the chemistry and dialogue between me and her came out so well that I became confident that I will only be Maan. And that’s how finally I got the role.”
Well, we are thankful that he did land the role finally!
