Tell us something about your character in the show 'Kabhi Kabhie Ittefaq Sey'
I am playing ‘Yug’ on the show who is the eldest sibling of the younger generation in the family. He is a fun-loving guy who is both respectful and chivalrous and is trying too hard to get the leads together.
Tell us about the various preparations that you have done for your character in the show?
So as we began working for the show, we were told that the story is of a joint family and being from a small town, I luckily have had the opportunity to be in one as well. I tried to use my personal experiences and draw a resemblance from my real life and imbibe that into the show. I worked on my energy levels as Yug is a very fun-loving, energetic person and that’s how I prepared for the role.
What is in store for the audience from the show?
It’s an extremely different and happy show with zero negativity involved. It can make you smile even on your saddest days with the slightest punch of laughter and banter that happens around in the family. It strikes important conversations with regards to family and family values and ethics. It’s a full-on family show that everybody will enjoy and relate to.
Tell us about your look/costumes for this show?
The production and stylists of the show have deemed me fit to be ‘the guy in checks’. I will mostly be seen sporting chequered shirts and casual trousers. It’s a very simple and natural look as opposed to most daily soaps.
How do you feel working with Star Plus and on their new show KKIS?
It’s a lovely opportunity, for a number of reasons. Firstly, you get to work with veterans such as Paintal Ji, Delnaaz, Nishigandha Ji, and so on and so forth. There are tons to learn from them. Second, working for Star Plus is like a dream come true.
Have you taken any particular inspiration for your character? If yes, then tell us why and how has it helped you portray your character
Yes. So I do theatre as well and in my last play, I played a similar character who was as energetic as Yug so I have taken some inspiration out from that character. But otherwise, I am known to go with the flow and am slowly and steadily getting a hold of my character.
