Yogendra was last seen in the popular Star Plus show Ghum Hai Kisikey Pyaar Meiin as Samrat. He really spread his magic on-screen so well that even after exiting the show, people still want to see more of his character.

TellyChakkar got in touch with the actor to talk about his entry in the show Meet, his character and more.

Fans are delighted that they get to see you in a new avatar and a new role. What has the experience been like till now on Meet?

The show has been on-air for a bit now and people enjoy watching the show. They are showing a lot of love for it. My journey earlier with Samrat in Ghum Hai Kisikey Pyaar Meiin was very positive. He was no nonsense kinda guy, so when I was offered the role of Mahendra, I thought the role has tremendous potential for me to try something new as an actor. Till now, the experience is that Mahendra is kind of a spoilt brat of the house, and it is an out and out negative character. The show was already pretty popular when certain new characters like mine entered the show, and people have continued to show us that love. The family is very nice, the people are very professional and everybody knows that Shashi Sumeet is a great production house to work with. I am grateful to be working with them and things are going pretty smoothly. As an actor, the effort is on, to see how much I can work with the character of Mahendra and how I can enhance it and bring in my own nuances.

 As you said that Samrat was a truly positive character and now that we are seeing you in an negative role right after, was that a conscious choice to not get stereotyped as the nice guy?

I don’t believe in stereotyping, and I have gotten offers of playing the positive roles of brothers or friends, but I never found anything new that I could learn or explore. When I was offered the character of Mahendra, I noticed his characteristics and that he belongs from Harayana, so I thought to myself that this is giving me an opportunity to do something different and have fun with it. So deefintely, it was a conscious choice, because I feel good as an actor when I play a role well. The audience can easily connect with your characters if you play them well, and if the audiences cannot, there would be no heroes or villains. If there were no positive or negative characters, where would the drama come from? If I only look at positive characters, it would create a sense of monotony in me as an actor and that is something I don’t want.

Fans have been a big part of your journey, what would you like to say to them?

I always say to the fans whenever I get a chance to interact with them that, I am so grateful and so happy, for the love they shower on me and it means a lot to me. It matters so much to me as an artist and it because of them that we exist. Their love and support is what keeps us all going and wait for that one opportunity where we get to do something for them, do a role that they would appreciate and love us for. I just hope that they show the same love to Mahendra and Meet as much as they have shown to Samrat, and I promise to continue to work hard to entertain you.
