Rupak Ginn Previews Return to Royal Pains

  • TVfanatic
Raj may have come down with the plague on the season two finale of Royal Pains.

But "they didn't kill me off," Rupak Ginn told me over the phone today. "So I had an idea I might be coming back."

And that return takes place tonight, as Raj makes an appearance on "An Apple a Day." The actor remained mum on the reasons behind Ray's presence, but did not an "interesting choice" made by the writers in penning the episode. He's curious to see how fans react.

It also sounds like Raj will be back again - "It's not tied up," he said of his storyline - which makes Ginn happy for the two reasons he enjoys working on the series:

It features a great, small main cast. "It's easy to get to know everyone and it really feels like a family." It mostly films on location in The Hamptons,

Beholder (2011) Short Film: Nisha Ganatra, Jessica Pare, Rupak Ginn

The Beholder Short Film has premiered. Nisha Ganatra‘s Beholder (2011) stars Jessica Pare, Rupak Ginn, Elaine Hendrix, Michael McMillian, and Michael Mosley. Beholder‘s plot synopsis: “Beholder takes place in the biosphere-protected Red Estates, a gated community with a socially conservative political majority. At a clinic where patients can genetically engineer their children, Sasha, the wife of rising political star Bobby Aryana, is informed that her baby carries the genetic marker for homosexuality. By the laws of Red Estates, this is an aberration that must be dealt with immediately, and Sasha must decide between staying faithful to the love of her life or risking everything. Touching on issues of race, sexual orientation, and conformity, Beholder examines the notion of identity and the costs of belonging.” This was higher quality than I was expecting. It seemed like a segment of a larger story. The genetically engineering children storyline has a distinct similarity with Jim and Soldier.

Futurestates | Review - SXSW Film 2011

Directors: Nisha Ganatra, Barry Jenkins, Kimi Takesue, Robby Henson, Bennett Cohen, A. Sayeeda Clarke One of the biggest surprises for me during SXSW 2010 was the Futurestates: Season 1 program. In my opinion, the Futurestates: Season 1 shorts are the epitome of great science fiction -- inventive, futuristic narratives with strong social-political messages concerning our modern world -- so it is with much excitement that I report that SXSW 2011 will feature six episodes from Futurestates: Season 2. Similar to season one, this year’s selection of Futurestates shorts visualize various possible futures for American society which include one or a combination of the following: environmental degradation, political polarization (and apathetic masses), over-reliance on new technologies, and globalization. Beholder Director Nisha Ganatra’s America exists within “safe” and “perfect” bubble of the socially conservative gated community Red Estates. Sasha (Jessica Pare) and her husband, Bobby (Rupak Ginn), are in the middle of a genetically engineered pregnancy.

But first, Marini has to firm up his viewing-party plans for his "Dancing" pro partner Cheryl Burke.

"Oh, gosh, Cheryl," he tells Zap2it, "I've got to ask her to come to my house for the 'Royal Pains' thing that I'm doing, because I'm playing a dance choreographer. She's going to have a blast with that one and making fun of me."

Royal Pains Season 2 Episode 13 Review: Mulligan – Summer Bliss Returns by the Hank Load

The mid-season catastrophe has been averted. Dr. Hank (Mark Feuerstein) and Evan’s (Paulo Costanzo) father Eddie (Henry Winkler) has been saved. Was there ever any doubt?

Come on. How much fun would a summer in the Hamptons be if a parental death loomed over the next five episodes leading into the Royal Pains season 2 finale? Not much I gather. Funerals and grieving periods would take up way too much time and sap up way too much humor. Suffice to say that HankMed season 2 got quickly back on course with summer bliss, a few laughs and perhaps one too many puns, once Eddie made it out of the emergency room.

But Eddie wasn’t the only one whose life was teetering on the edge of a cliff at the mid-season finale. Divya (Reshma Shetty) has been playing with fire, or Adam’s (Patrick Heusinger) emotions depending on how you look at it,
