EXCLUSIVE! Ajay Jadhav on doing Maddam Sir: I was initially cast as a one or two day artist; I always see the depth of any character and not the length
MUMBAI: Sony SAB's Maddam Sir is one of the most entertaining and light-hearted shows on the small screen.

Ajay Jadhav is one of them and is seen as Billu Champat in the show.

TellyChakkar got in touch with Ajay who spoke at length about the role and much more.
How challenging is it to play a comic character?
When I was called for the show, I was hired as a one or two day artist. I have done a lot of work and I don't see the length of my character but the depth. That's what has brought me here. My character got a great response from the viewers, so the channel and the production team decided to give my character continuity in the show.
Did you put any personal inputs to make your character impactful?
Yes, Billu the spy is the signature dialogue that was introduced by the director and even the way I use my sunglasses. The way I call 'Maa' to Pushpa Ji was one input I gave for my character. We used to get many great ideas once we used to shoot for the episode. We all used to save the ideas and use them whenever needed. This is how some of the nuances of my character became my signature style.
How has your journey been in the Hindi and Marathi industry?
I belong to the Marathi theatre industry. I did my first act in 1990 in school. I got a consolation price and I also got several rewards back then. I participated in the Mumbai University competition and got a gold medal for Best actor. My journey started from there and I did a lot of plays. From 2005, I left the Marathi industry and tried to concentrate on the Hindi industry. I worked with Gajraj Rao on several ads. Around that time, I got Taxi No. 9211 which was my first Hindi film. I continued doing ads and films in the Hindi industry. I didn't do many daily soaps as I didn't want to get into them.
Ajay has done projects like Shamitabh, Bhootnath Returns, Ittefaq, and much more.
