Tell us more about your background…
I am from Delhi. I did my schooling and graduation there. Not many would know that I worked as an operation manager at Jindal Telecom for 7 years. People often told me I looked good and should be in front of the camera. I too wished being on TV, tried my luck and here I am!
On Baat Hamari…
The channel and DJ’s auditioned me. At that time, I was juggling a couple of shows. However, when I came to know about Shravan’s (his character in Baat Hamari Pakki Hai) character I really wanted to play this part.
What is your character like in the show?
Shravan is a slightly irresponsible guy. He belongs to a family that is quite well-off thus, has no pressure of earning. He is the youngest in the family. I could say that he has reached a marriageable age but doesn’t want to get married. He is very carefree because of which he ends up hurting people, unintentionally. It’s a very cute character.
Can you relate to your character in the show?
Yes, there are many aspects of his I identify with. He talks just like me.
Tell us more about your off-screen chemistry with Ankita Sharma (his romantic lead in the show)…
Ankita (Sharma) is a wonderful girl. She scolds me a lot on the sets (laughs) but even then she is also very sweet. She is a very good actress and we get along well on the set.
Do you believe in arranged marriages?
I don’t but I am not against them either. If I find someone, good and if I don’t, I will go to my parents.
What are your expectations from the show?
My fingers are crossed, I am praying! From what I see in my character, Shravan is definitely going to stand out. He is unlike others who you see in daily soaps and he will make everyone happy.
You’re a lead in a prime time show. What is the feeling like?
I am excited. However, I don’t have butterflies in my stomach anymore. I think no butterflies will help me work better.
TV or films?
I would pick both. I am currently doing television and am having a lot of fun. But, I would like to do films too.
What are your future plans?
I don’t know. Currently, I am putting my heart and soul into this.
