Samir Kochhar got married. This Delhi model cum actor who first tasted big success with JANNAT has tied the knot on 8th/9th Jan in Goa with long time girl friend Radhika " We have been going around for the past 3 and a half years. She was a producer of one of my TV shows and is now an event manager."
Talking about the ceremony which had take place in Goa, Samir who is also hosting the IPL says "We had an exotic beach wedding which had attended by close family friends and well wishers from the industry." So any pre-wedding jitters? "Yes I was nervous & excited says Samir who debuted with ZEHAR and then went on to do a couple of sex comedies. " My friends in Delhi are planning some big naughty bachelors party", he laughed. He seems to like to do stuff on sex for he is hosting a second season of his bold chat show 'Dangerous' on Zoom now renamed 'Closer Now'.
Post marriage, Samir has 2 back to back releases i.e. Apoorva Lakhia produced HIDE N SEEK and second is Jahmohan Mundra's CHASE. The first is an entrapment kind of thriller where Samir along with 5 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" says he.
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 my ZEHAR. I really enjoyed doing car chasing stunts and jumping from buildings as my character chased Anuj throughout 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 into this field, both my folks are doctors," he ends...
