The exciting news that Star Plus is re-telecasting the popular show "Kyun Ki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi." How do you feel about this and what can you share about your experience working on the show?
Firstly, I want to express my gratitude to all the fans for their love and support. It's truly overwhelming. I actually started my journey with Ekta Kapoor's show "Kutumbh," where I portrayed the character of Pratham Mittal. Now, Ekta Kapoor is giving me another opportunity with a character that is bigger and better than Pratham Mittal. It's an honor to work with her again.
Working on "Kyun Ki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi" was an incredible experience. Karan Virani, the character I played, was loved by the audience, and it was a joyous time collaborating with the entire cast. Smriti Irani, in particular, was very supportive. The atmosphere on set felt like a family, especially since the show introduced numerous family-oriented roles. Even though I joined the show four years after it started, everyone welcomed me with open arms.
You have recently joined the cast of "Bade Achhe Lagte Hai-2." Could you tell us a bit about your experience so far?
Yes, I have recently joined the cast of "Bade Achhe Lagte Hai-2." Although I haven't had a chance to watch the show yet, I have heard many wonderful things about it. It feels great to reunite with Balaji after a gap of 2-3 years. Working with them has always been a fantastic experience.
When it comes to my creative process for the role, I believe in understanding the character right from their birth. I receive a good briefing about the character, but there are also many things I need to figure out myself. I use my imagination to build a character that resonates with the story and the audience.
How you got involved in acting. Can you share a bit about your journey?
Certainly! Acting has always been a part of our lives in one way or another. We all engage in acts, even in our daily lives when we hide something or present ourselves differently. But acting in front of the camera is a whole different experience.
Before entering television, I was involved in numerous street plays and theater productions. In fact, I have an upcoming comedy play titled "I Love You Too," which I perform whenever I find spare time amidst my shooting schedule.
Initially, I had a desire to do something on screen, and I dabbled in theater and editing. Interestingly, I used to direct editors during that time. Eventually, I entered the television industry through auditions and was selected for my first show, "Ghar Ek Mandir." Since then, there has been no looking back.
Could you share a lifechanging moment or experience that has had a profound impact on you?
Absolutely. While I always had the aspiration to work in TV and entertainment, I never anticipated the immense love and support I would receive from people. It's truly the best feeling in the world. However, I must mention that marriage and having kids have been the most life.
