Rajesh Kumar is a renowned Indian actor.


Rajesh Kumar popularly known as Rosesh Sarabhai from the hit TV show, Sarabhai Vs Sarabhai, had tested positive for Covid 19 in August 2020. He was shooting when he learned about it. “I felt a little low because I was working with so many people, and I hoped that it wouldn't spread from me. Suddenly you start calculating who all have you met in those 2-3 particular days. So those things hit me - but then I said let's see the situation the way it is rather than amplifying it in my head. The closest contact with me was my driver, but thankfully he just did not drop his mask. So he did not get anything from me. That’s in fact the learning that if you take all the precautions you will be safe,” says Rajesh, whose wife and elder son had also tested positive for the virus. 

However, in such times Rajesh suggests everyone take the Yoga route. “The kind of kriya which I do, I use 100 percent of the lungs, otherwise in day-to-day activities, one uses only 13 to 14 percent of our lungs. There is this one kriya called Shakthi Chalana Kriya, where we use all the 4 lobes of the lungs, so a hundred percent of it is activated. There is another one called Simha Kriya, which I think is a Covid test for everyone. By doing that you can actually check if your lung is infected or not. If you are not able to do it that means you are infected. People should do this kriya at least two times a day,” says Rajesh.

He also emphasizes the importance of eating the right food. “Do you know where the immunity system is?” questions Rajesh. He further adds, “Since last year if one person would have come forward and told about where in the body the immunity system lies, 90 percent of the people would not have got infected. Why? Because everything is directly related to your food. The first major immunity lies in your gut area, that is the outer membrane of your small intestine, the second one is in your respiratory. You must have noticed the day your stomach is upset, the entire day is bad. So if your stomach is clean, you are happy, which is leading to your immunity build. So everything is related to the food you consume. You can eat junk food once a week, but it can’t become a part of you,” says Rajesh.

Bigg Boss is undoubtedly India's most loved show, not just among the audiences, but celebs too. And with season 14 of the controversial show on air currently, there is already a lot of curiosity and excitement. Actor Savi Thakur, who has recently joined the cast of Guddan - Tumse Na Ho Paayega is also a fan of the show and even said that he would love to participate in the show in the future.

He told us, "I would love to do 'Bigg Boss' because I want to see why people change when they enter the house, why they become extra violent and why they start playing dirty games. I mean what changes and what forces them to do so. I think I am the kind of person who will stay calm and will perform all the tasks." 

The Porus actor also asserted that people forget to play their real selves in the show, and said, "They forget themselves and start playing dirty games, they forget their true nature and the right way of doing tasks, and people might hate you for that. I think one should be real, no matter what. Not only in a reality show but it’s important to control your anger and your emotions in real life too, people want to see the real you so no need to play anything artificial."

On the other hand, Rajesh Kumar hopes that the show has fewer abuses and more entertainment this year. “The expectation from the show is, like every year, I am wishing that those bandage Kam ho. It becomes very serious. I just hope that there should be some scope for humor as well. Anyway, we are in a pandemic and I hope Bigg Boss can come as a huge relief because around us, everything is already serious. I hope the contestants play sportingly rather than being abusive,” he added.

Rajesh Kumar, who became a household name as Roshesh from Sarabhai Vs Sarabhai has tested positive for the novel Coronavirus. Despite taking all precautionary and safety measures, the actor, unfortunately, is diagnosed with the virus and is self-quarantining at his house. He had taken to his Instagram handle to inform everyone about being tested COVID-19 positive, quarantine, and medical treatment. In a recent conversation with the Times of India, Rajesh shared when how he understood he might be COVID-19 positive, his health conditions, how he is coping, and the precautionary measures. 

The actor shared that he has been asymptomatic from day one. He said that he had some days ago, he had gone shopping for Ganesh Chaturthi celebrations and thought that he might have contracted the disease when he stepped out. Rajesh stated that he didn't get any symptoms like cold or cough back then, however, he felt lethargic the entire day. As a precautionary measure, he decided to get himself tested for COVID-19, and his results were positive. 

Rajesh stated that he was scared of getting the virus, and when was finally tested COVID-19 positive, he was nervous for a few minutes. But soon his anxiety vanished. Soon, he informed his neighbors, and the floor where he stays is quarantined. 'Now, I am not scared, but my neighbors are understandably petrified,' stated Rajesh.

Further, the actor shared that he does not have any major symptoms even now, but he just feels lazy and has lost his sense of taste and smell. Rajesh reiterated, 'I wasn’t shooting for several days, but have informed my producers, and they will go through the usual formalities and guidelines.' 

The talented actor will be in-home quarantine for 14 days. Sharing how he is managing situations, he said that his son is in constant touch with him on the phone. 'My eeps calling me on the phone and is bored of my talks now.' said Rajesh. He also added that he has been feeling low on energy and most of the time he is sleeping. He hopes that he will recover well, and things will be fine son. 

Lastly, Rajesh urged people to not go out of their house, unless it is extremely essential. 'I want to add that there is no particular reason as to how or when the virus can infect someone, so people should not jump to any conclusions. Having said that, it is important not to step out of the house, if you don’t have work,' concluded Rajesh. 

Zee TV is going to come up with a new interesting show titled Hamari Bahu Silk. The show stars Chahat Pandey and Reeva Chaudry as the female leads. Actors Zaan Khan and Manas Shah will play the male leads in the show. 

The show is creating a lot of buzz due to its amazing cast and interesting storyline. As per our sources, a very talented actor will be also playing a key role in Hamari Bahu Silk. According to our source, Sarabhai Vs Sarabhai's Roshesh Sarabhai aka Rajesh Kumar will be playing an interesting part in the show.

Rajesh Kumar has been a part of several exciting shows like Baa Bahoo Aur Baby, Bhootwala Serial, Mrs & Mr. Sharma Allahabadwale, and many others. Considering this is a show based on social norms topic, we can't wait to know more about his character.

Meanwhile, it was reported that Samir Soni will also be a part of the movie. Talking about his role in the movie, Samir said to the daily, "SOTY 2 is a fresh story, only the franchise is being carried forward. Rishi is the finest actor we have. He did a fabulous job in the first part and people remember him. I am nervous and excited to step into his shoes, although it’s not the same character. I’m looking forward to the challenge." 

Rajesh Kumar aka our very own Roses from the cult comedy show Sarabhai Vs Sarabhai is now back on TV with his new show Hum Saaf Saaf Hain. The promo is already out and the show is trying to focus on the areas of public interest like cleanliness and public hygiene. The actor has been roped to play the lead in the upcoming series. It will roll from 16th February at 9:30 PM. Rajesh shared the promo on Instagram and fans are happy to see the actor back on TV. He wrote, “Superly excited to share the news with you all!! My new show #humsaafsaafhain coming on 16th February at 9:30 PM on #colorsrishtey! Don’t forget to watch!! #colors #saturday #saturdaymorning #colorstv.”

According to earlier reports, the actor has now bagged a big Bollywood movie. Rajesh will be seen in Tiger Shroff, Ananya Panday, and Tara Sutaria Starrer Student of The Year 2. Rajesh will reportedly play the role of one of Tiger's family members and his on-screen wife will be played by Manasi Joshi Roy. Rajesh was last seen in a cameo in Krystle Dsouza's Belan Wali Bahu. The actor was also roped in for a special part in Khichdi.

Rajesh Kumar was also in the headlines as he had quit acting and shifted to his hometown, Barma, in Gaya, located about 125 km from Patna in order to turn it into a “Smart” village. He spent the last two months testing the soil of his 10-acre farm, checking the suitability of the climate for various crops, and doing extensive research on organic farming. He is also working on setting up the Farmer Producer Organisation (FPO) in association with local farmers of Barma. Meanwhile, check out the promo of the show:

Meanwhile, it was reported that Samir Soni will also be a part of the movie. Talking about his role in the movie, Samir said to the daily, "SOTY 2 is a fresh story, only the franchise is being carried forward. Rishi is the finest actor we have. He did a fabulous job in the first part and people remember him. I am nervous and excited to step into his shoes, although it’s not the same character. I’m looking forward to the challenge." 

Actor Rajesh Kumar will take over "Neeli Chhatri Waale" from Bollywood actor Yashpal Sharma, who has quit the TV show owing to the long-running format of the small screen. Rajesh still remembered for his portrayal of Roses Sarabhai in the TV show "Sarabhai vs Sarabhai", will join the cast of the Zee TV show as lead protagonist Bhagwan Das. With the change, Rajesh hopes to surpass the level created by Yashpal."It is a challenge for me to step into veteran actor Yashpal's shoes. I hope that I will be able to do justice with my new role and will not disappoint mine and Yashpal Ji's fan”," Yashpal said in a statement. However, Yashpal, known for movies like "Gangaajal", "Lagaan" and "Ab Tak Chhappan", says love for theatre prompted the decision to leave the world of the small screen."I had signed up for a certain number of episodes when we started off and have completed my end of the contract. I'm happy to have explored working in the television space but didn't want to be associated with a show which runs for five years. I also miss films and theatre, and want to focus on that," Yashpal said in a statement. The weekend show narrates Bhagwan's journey of listening to his inner voice through conversations with God."At a point where Yashpal decided to move on to films and theatre, we couldn't have asked for a more suitable actor than Rajesh to step into his shoes. He will lend the right blend of inherent good nature, natural innocence, and simplicity that a role like Bhagwan Das needs," said Namit Sharma, the channel's programming head.

Ileana D’Cruz attended the Saraswati pooja organized by director Anurag Basu in Mumbai on Saturday. The festival was celebrated on January 24. Ileana came to the event wearing a pink saree. Also attending the pooja were Ekta Kapoor, Pritam, Sumona Chakravarti, Saurabh Shukla, Sujoy Ghosh, Monali Thakur, Vishal Bhardwaj, Rekha Bhardwaj, Rupali Ganguly, and Rajesh Kumar. Ileana shook a leg at the pooja while Monali was behind the mic. Even Rekha sang a few songs at the event.

If you thought that television actors were content to just face the camera, think again. Rajesh Kumar, who has been doing organic farming in Bihar for some time, wants to do it in Mumbai now. The actor, who is currently seen in 'Excuse Me Madaam', wants to introduce the concept of community farming, where people, together, own or rent a piece of land and grow their vegetables. In a quick tête-à-tête, Rajesh talks about his love for farming and how it can hugely benefit Mumbaikars.

The whole concept is about creating awareness amongst families about knowing where their vegetables are coming from and where they are grown so that they can check the quality. For instance, if you are consuming chemical-free vegetables, your energy levels and the way you function in day-to-day life become better. Community farming is all about getting like-minded people together under one roof, where they grow vegetables according to their choices. We also tell them about the deliveries of the month, we take care of their monthly quantity of the vegetables that they use and the quality as well.

The idea came to me after I participated in Rally for River, which happened in 2017. When I went to my village in Bihar, I saw that the river, which is one kilometer in width and more than a hundred kilometers in length, does not even have a single drop of water. I thought if I revive this river, it would be a great thing because not many people know about it and no kids are swimming or catching fish in the river because there is no water. Plus, it was damaging our ecosystem. So, we started work on reviving the river. And, that's how I realized the importance of farming, and horticulture in India. The river and its revival motivated me to start my journey.

Do you feel that the concept can work in a big city like Mumbai? I've already created a model farm in Bihar. Here, I got together with three people and we have taken land for rent. We have planted approximately 20,000 trees, are doing naturally grown vegetable farming on approximately 10 acres of land, and trying to bring farmers under one roof. We want to provide them with the infrastructure and handhold them to switch from normal chemical farming to natural farming. This concept will work in Mumbai because there are so many people living in a single building, there are hundreds of flats in the society. Many people want to have a farm, but not everyone can afford to have one. If they can afford a farm, they don’t have time to spend on the farm.

Actor Rajesh Kumar, aka Rosesh Sarabhai of Sarabhai vs Sarabhai, has revealed that he has tested Covid-19 positive. He says he is asymptomatic and presently under home quarantine.

“I never had any of the common symptoms and didn’t even realize something was wrong till the time I started feeling lethargic. The first bout happened on August 20 and when it happened again the next day I decided to see a doctor. Slowly I lost my sense of taste and smell. It was on August 22 that I got my rapid test done and it came positive. Since then I’ve been in home isolation. I have been exercising and doing yoga daily. Things are fine just that at times my body requires rest,” says Kumar.

While he is constantly checking temperatures and his oxygen levels, he doesn’t want to make the situation sound grim. “Waise jab tak Corona nahi hota hai aapko tension hai, aur jab aapko hota hai to padosi so nahi paate,” he jokes. 

Rajesh Kumar has won our hearts with his performance as Rosesh in Sarabhai VS Sarabhai. From his poems to his comic timings, the actor has always managed to put a smile on our faces with his performances in shows like Baa Bahu Aur Baby and more. He had only recently started shooting for his new show, Excuse Me, Madam, and has tested positive for Coronavirus as per reports.

This show marks his comeback on television and the show has recently launched. If the reports are to be believed, then Rajesh Kumar is asymptomatic and has been quarantined at home for now while maintaining all the precautions necessary. His co-star, Nyra Banerjee, was apparently unaware of the actor testing positive for Coronavirus. But, she has not had any scenes with Rajesh in close proximity and says it has been a long time since she shot with him.

Rajesh explains, “Yes, the weight gain is helping me create the character in a more realistic way. A lot of men feel it is time for a semi-retirement once they reach 40, especially in North India. They don’t pay much attention to their fitness and lead a very laid-back life. With weight, facial reactions look cute, especially in comedy. I am playing a common man and not a hero, so it perfectly works. I have no apprehensions about my weight because that helps me look like a regular 40-year-old man, much needed for the character. As long as being overweight justifies a character, I don’t worry about it.”

“My character Sanam Harjai is not a typical henpecked husband, but for him, living with a possessive wife is not easy. At the same time, he falls in love with his boss. He is also an underdog. Sanam is a very loving character and a typical 40-plus man. He is at an age where both the waist size and age are the same - 40!” chuckles Rajesh.

According to Rajesh, what makes the character unique is the intelligent writing laced with humor. “The situations and the conversations in the show are very real, something everyone will be able to relate to and that’s what makes the show and the characters funny. I feel shows like ‘Excuse Me, Madam,’ that are simple in their plots and storytelling are rarely being made today,” he adds.

Speaking about the special attraction of the show - the dogs - Rajesh shares, "We have humanized the dogs in the show and they have their own conversations. I am having a great time with these furry friends on the sets. With them around, everything seems happy and vibrant."

Amid Coronavirus lockdown, the 90’s kids have been reminiscing their old childhood days as their favorite shows are aired again. First Ramayan, then Shaktimaan, and now Sarabhai vs Sarabhai is back on the Indian television. Starring Satish Shah, Ratna Pathak Shah, and Rajesh Kumar in the leading roles, Sarabhai vs Sarabhai revolve around the life of a quintessential upper-class family living in South Mumbai.

Recently, in an interview with a leading daily, Rajesh Kumar who essayed the role of Roshesh Sarabhai revealed that it took 11 years for him to convince his son to watch the show.

In the interview with the leading daily, the actor said that his son didn’t like the show Sarabhai vs Sarabhai at all. He further said that it took him 11 years to convince his son to watch by saying that it is a good show and now, he is watching it back to back. Furthermore, Rajesh Kumar mentioned that now his son is binge-watching the show and has even finished 22 episodes. He added that he is really happy and he doesn’t even feel like telling him to stop watching since it is his show.

Sarabhai vs Sarabhai makers started airing the show again on April 6, 2020, on Star Bharat. In one of Rajesh Kumar's previous interviews with a leading daily, he talked about his character Roshesh Sarabhai. He said that the character itself is very funny. He added that sometimes he thinks about his character Roshesh Sarabhai and feels what a stupid person he is. Rajesh Kumar said that Roshesh Sarabhai is a duffer and if anyone takes that out of him, the character will lose its essence.

While shooting for the show, Rajesh was diagnosed with coronavirus and had to stop shooting the show for nearly 20 days in September. He donned the garb of a tailor for one episode of Excuse Me, Madam. The actor had said it was inspired by Rishi Kapoor's act in Amar Akbar Anthony. "For an episode, where my Sanam gets stuck because he didn't do something that Madam had asked him to do, he takes the disguise of a tailor to save himself and take Madam's measurement. This whole disguise happened in a fun way. People tell me that I look like Rishi Kapoor Ji, and this look is taken from Amar Akbar Anthony's Rishi Ji look. This is a fun episode and I finally manage to disguise myself quite well," he had told the daily in October.

Elaborating on the kind of projects he'd like to work on, Rajesh had said in an interview in December, “I want to do some mature comedy…extramarital affairs and all I don’t want to talk about. It should have some classes. I am also open to playing something rustic. Not many people have explored the character of a Bihari. They have explored a particular kind of Bihari and stuck to it. Like people in the industry have made all Biharies like Lalu Prasad… but there are other dimensions of characters in Bihar also. These are more in the matured space and have writing and performance which suits the age. I want to do that kind of comedy."

If you have been wondering why actor Rajesh Kumar has been looking plump, you’ll be pleased to know that it’s all part of his look for a new show. The actor, who is part of  Maharaj Ki Jai Ho, has put on about 20 kg for the character."Character mein wajan lane ke liye kai baar aapko wajan badhana padta hai! My character is too lazy. Chubbiness makes you look cute, so whatever you say and do looks funny, which is how my role is. This role came to me after so many years of amazing writing. As it is a finite series lot of effort has gone into making it, gaining weight was one of the efforts,” says Rajesh, who rose to fame for his role of Roses in Sarabhai vs Sarabhai.

Ask him how he ended up putting on so much, and he says, “I am almost 104kgs right now. To gain weight I did nothing and that’s the reason I gained weight. I avoided eating junk food to gain weight but I stopped working out and I was just on a 4-course meal. I ate homemade food and gained weight.”

Ask him how he intends to lose weight, and he says, "I am already in the process of losing. I have given myself 2-3 months because it has to be a slow process. We do not get results overnight. All my life I have played so much, I was a national-level basketball player. I know my metabolism. The process has started. I am keeping an eye on it and enjoying every bit of it. I am trying to be injury-free.”

His family was quite surprised at the weight gain initially. “In the beginning, they were so worried that I had gained so much weight. But later, when they got to know that I am doing it for a show, it was okay. I am sure it will take a lot of time to reduce weight,” he says.

Rajesh Kumar, better known as  Roses Sarabhai from Sarabhai vs Sarabhai, recently tested positive for COVID-19 while shooting for his TV show Excuse Me, Madam. “In between shooting, we had a two-day off due to Ganesh Chaturthi, and during that time I had visited a market. Though I was following all safety norms, I still tested positive. Luckily, I was asymptomatic and isolated myself at home. Now that I have recovered completely, I’m excited that I have resumed shooting.”‘Was missing work, but excited to be back after 20 days

I’m really happy to be back on the sets as I was terribly missing work. Aisa lagta hai isolation ki jail se nikal kar khuli hawa mein aaya hoon. Everybody on the sets is following all safety precautions. In fact, maintaining social distance and wearing masks when not shooting has become a habit for all of us.

In my first year, I got selected to walk the ramp with the likes of Manpreet Brar and  Rahul Dev. Since then, people started calling me a model, it was my nickname.

Visiting his college in Delhi is always nostalgic for the Sarabhai Vs Sarabhai actor  Rajesh Kumar. He tells us that it is where he learned how to take risks in life. The actor, who recently visited his alma mater for TEDX Hindu College, spoke at the event, interacted with his juniors, and roamed around the college, reminiscing the days gone by. “I feel honored and privileged to be there. Once you are in that setup, you go back to those years of college. The kids were really sporty, they took me around the college. A lot of construction has happened now, there are old buildings and new buildings, and the old ones always bring those memories back. I visited the hostel as well, it was closed, but I sneaked inside and saw the rooms from outside,” he shares.

Though college festivals are a big thing now and student unions make sure to invite celebrities, the actor says that they had invited their super senior Vishal Bhardwaj for one of the college festivals. “Maachis release hui this, I was in my second year when he had come. Seeing him in the flesh felt very nice, tab hum students that, then I met him in Mumbai. During those days,  Parikrama Band was there. Without social media as well, they had made their mark, and people knew about them. Also, at that time, politicians were bigger celebrities than movie or TV actors,” he says.
