Stars in paradise

FIJI is a paradise with wonderful people and an amazing culture, said Yahan Main Ghar Ghar Kheli star Karan Grover after the finish of the TV Stars Nite tour in Fiji.

Karan, as he is known to his fans, was in the country last week for the TV Stars Nite concert across the country and said Fijians had been amazing hosts.

"My co-star Suhasi had initially told me about Fiji and said I had to come here because there were so many people who were fans of our show," he said.

"She received great support when she was here and I am really grateful that I was welcomed so graciously here."

He said he also knew of Fiji through friends who had come for film shooting in the country. "I had heard that there were Indians living in Fiji but I didn't know there were so many.

"When I first landed at the airport, I got a little shock because there were so many Indians there to greet me."

Similar sentiments were echoed by his co-stars — singer Shehnaz Akhtar and comedian Chirag.

"I have never been to Fiji but my friend Jimmy Moses was here and informed me I had to come to Fiji," said Chirag.

Akhtar said he was blown away with the amount of support his show Sa Re Ga Ma Pa had received in Fiji.

"All we can say is keep on supporting our shows and thank you for the amazing support," the 21-year-old singer said.
