CHARACTER: A natural charmer, Arun likes to act tough and cool in front of his siblings, but he isn't really - he's not even in with the local gang, and that's not for want of trying. Arun's really into music and he's always on his decks. He dreams of becoming a famous DJ.

"My family is so annoying - they still treat me like some kind of little kid, Jas especially. She's always nagging on at me, she needs to learn to lighten up a bit and enjoy herself - she's such a try-hard! At least I can get a bit of peace while she's away in New York! Mind you,  she seems more chilled since she went. Me, I've got by easily enough up to now - all it needs is a little bit of the Arun charm and my natural talent ...

"Playing music is what I really want to do, but the rest of my family have no musical taste whatsoever. What with Dad's cheesy tunes and mum and Roopa's Bollywood and X Factor pop on all the time I just had to move out. How was I supposed to get better on my decks with those kind of influences going on!

"Well they ain't gonna stop me from hitting the big time, no way. One day I'll be as big as Rishi Rich. Arun Chauhan is going somewhere, and the honeys know it."

"Well, gotta head off to do a shift at Saffrons.....yeah yeah I know what you're thinking! All I can say is we all have to start somewhere. It's only temporary and keeps the oldies off my case. Do you get me!
