A few months ago the media was abuzz with the news of Chhal star Avinesh Rekhi entering RK (Vivian D’sena) and Madhu’s (Drashti Dhami) life in Colors’ Madhubala (Nautanki Telefilms/BAG Films) but then his entry got delayed.
However, the latest is that this artist who is all set to play an antagonist on the show will finally start shooting for it today (2 March 2013). And his entry in the show will be aired sometime next week.
“Avinesh will be seen as Sultan, a gangster. He also has a little son. But, as the story progresses he will fall for Madhubala,” says a source.
He also tells us that his entry will be heroic as he will save Madhubala who will be trapped by the goons in a jungle.
We contacted Avinesh to know about the delay in his entry and more…
“Yes, I was approached for Madhubala in November 2012 but, my entry got delayed for some reason or the other. However, I’ve learnt one thing in the industry and that is to be patient,” says the actor.
He further goes on to add, “I am very happy at the moment as the wait is finally over. And I just hope that audiences like my character.”
So, will he be looking at Vivian as his competition? “No, I think I’d rather look at him as my co-star as he has different challenges to meet as the protagonist and I have different challenges as an antagonist.”
The actor has also beefed up for his role in Madhubala. Hence we checked with him if this was the production’s demand or his personal call. “While I was doing Chhal I was new to the industry and had no idea, as to, how to cope up with the hectic schedule of the show. But, then I used the break I got post Chhal to work on my muscles. So, it was a personal call and fortunately enough it also goes with the kind of character I am playing.”
Get ready for some twist in the tale!!!
