“I then went on to pursue theatre and eventually moved to films and television. I have written around 5,000 episodes till now.” Wow that’s impressive, wouldn’t you agree?
2. Pravin talks about the time he got fired from his job
Before entering the world of films, Pravin used to do a 9-5 job. But he realised he was terrible at it and was even asked to go! “Before me resigning, they themselves asked me to go home,” he said, adding, “I used to work in a company that produced roses, that are used by people on Valentine’s Day.” To this Sanjay asked him whether he ever used the roses for his own needs to which Pravin said that he never had any friends growing up and no girl ever looked at him. Awww!
3. Pravin talks about an important lesson that he learnt from his mother
Pravin spoke about his closeness to his mother and said that she taught him and his siblings, despite not being very well-educated herself. “She used to take lessons for us at home and did this for neatly seven years. But not once did she find any fault in our work. One day I asked her why she didn’t point out our mistakes. She said if she did so, there’s a chance that our confidence would have faltered. She gave us a chance to learn from our own mistakes. She always told me that positive thinking is half the battle won.”
4. Pravin's wife spills the beans on him
The episode saw an appearance by Pravin’s wife who revealed that the director is like an owl, who wakes up the whole night and sleeps in the morning. She even said that Pravin’s friends come before her and his family. “But jokes aside, his friends have been there for me like no other. When I was pregnant, they have taken more care of me than Pravin himself,” she added. Now that’s like a good wife!
5. Pravin says he is proud of his background and always will be
Pravin revealed that he comes from a farming background. “My father was a farmer while my mother was a housewife. I have grown up in a small district in Mulshi and even today when people ask me about my background, I say that I come from a family of farmers. I am proud of this fact and always will be.”
