Talking about his school days, Rajveer shared, “Comic books and novels have played a very vital role in my life. There was a time when I never liked reading books and the only subjects that I liked reading were Hindi and Sanskrit. It was around that time when I was introduced to comic books with characters like Navraj, Super Commando and Doga. When I was in 9th standard, I got so attracted to comics that I used to spend my entire day reading them. My mother would also be impressed with me because she thought I was studying all the time, but little did she know about the comic books as I used to hide them between all my textbooks. This went on for almost six months and when I got the results of my pre-boards, where I clearly didn’t perform well, my mother got to know everything. That time I had a collection of almost 150 comics which were hidden in my room at different places so that my mother couldn’t find them. But one day, when I went to play cricket with my friends, she came into my room and noticed there is always a book with another book in it. She found my comic book collection and scolded me a lot for it. She made sure that I get rid of comics, little did she know there were 100 more hidden.”
He further added, “To save my comics I gave them to my mama’s son which led to his school grades going for a toss too. Soon my mother got to know about it, and she threw them all away. However, my cousin had managed to save 2 to 3 comics and they are still with me. It has been years, but I still don’t read them because I fear my mother will scold me. When I joined theatre, I also got into the habit of reading books which I hated in my childhood. I really started liking Hindi literature and till date, I am not that fond of English novels, but I do have a huge collection of Hindi books. Whenever my mother visits my place, she says that if I would have read these books in my childhood, I would have become a government collector and reply back saying ‘’I’m not a collector today, but I’m an actor’ and she has a huge smile on her face. I really feel people should read more, especially during this lockdown, when we have some time. It will surely broaden your perspective and help you grow.”
While Rajveer continues to hide his comic book collection from his mother, in Qurbaan Hua, Neel and Chahat are heading for a divorce. Dua and Shlok try to fix their parents relationship, but will Neel be able to forget everything and start his relationship with Chahat all over again?
