What kind of roles are you expecting in the future projects?

I want to be the biggest villain in the television industry. I want people to appreciate my craft in negative characters because I don't look like a villain. When it comes to playing negative characters, the actor grabs all the attention once he is on-screen. There is too much fun when people hate you for playing negative roles.

Does playing a negative character affect you?

Sometimes some actions definitely affect me. There were certain scenes in Gud Se Meetha Ishq which were very intense and difficult to perform.

Do you find any difference between performing a fiction and a non-fiction character?

Not really as an actor doesn't get enough time to prepare. When I talk about my character in  Gud Se Meetha Ishq which was based on a true story, I just searched a little bit on Google. I got the basic idea about my character.

What kind of roles do you want to play in web shows?

I want to play negative characters on the web too. I want to play a poster boy. I don't fera of getting typecast. I just want people to offer me such roles so that I can show my craft. Comedy roles are difficult amongst all and the casting is also done according to the looks. I never saw myself in that zone. If I get an opportunity, I will do something great.

Stay tuned to TellyChakkar for all the latest updates.
