Below are some opinions of famous TV personalities about Udit Rajpara:-
Manish Wadhwa (Chanakya) – “Bina kisi swarth ke kuchh karne Ka jazba Khaas logo mein hi hota hai…udit is one of them..Bass jeet ka sehra pehan na baaki hai ”.
Nilanjana Purkayasstha (Producer CGM) – “Udit started a revolution with the Save CGM page. If it wasn’t for him, I would have never known what our show has meant to the audience. For that, I will be ever grateful to him. ”
Ashish Sharma (Chandragupta Maurya) – “We all take our own sweet time to realise what we want to be in our life or what’s our higher motive,very few can actually make out what there true calling is and then have the guts to pursue what they want to achieve,udit is one of these very few people who has an inborn flair of a leader..and I was amazed when I first met him on cgm sets,the way he handled cgm pages online and then gave birth and led the whole save cgm movement I thought he must be of some age but to my surprise I met this young college boy,with a blissfull smile and thoughtful eyes..will not be surprised to see him leading many more meaningful social movements..wish him luck and proud:) ”
Vaibhav Mutha (Director CGM) –
“Ek yug ki shuruaat thi
Ek yug Ka phir ant hua
Ek yug naya banane ko
Ek wo shaksa judit hua
Kar chala wo sabko ek
Sapne bade the uske nek
Li kasam usne thi wo
Layega wo cgm ko jo
Kar gaya wo bahut hi kuch
Har nahi mani suchmuch
Ek din wo cgm layega
Udit uday jo ho jayega…
Udit uday jo ho jayega..”
Jyoti Sagar (Producer of Sagar Arts) – ”Chandragupt Maurya was a serial that was extremely popular and had die hard fans from all over. It was at the peak of its popularity when due to unfortunate circumstances the Chanel went off air.
Ever since udit and his team comprising of just viewers have worked day and night to try and get the show back on air.
Udit started a page on Facebook which has over 1 lac members.
They have organised rallies sent messages to other channels and even met government officials to get the show back on air.
Team CGM thanks Udit and his team for all their untiring efforts. ”
