Recently, he was also seen in a web series ‘Hello Mini’.
Tellychakkar got in touch with Vibhay where he talked about the uniqueness of the show and much more.
Tell me something about your character in the show?
My character is Som, who is a happy-go-lucky guy from Banaras. There’s going to be two generations of saas-bahu drama and I’m someone who is being the voice of reason between them, adding a touch of calmness to the whole fiasco. I haven’t done television in a while. I’m always in the hunch of some interesting stories and juicy characters. So, I honestly thought about this character, a guy who is enveloped in this entire drama of women. It was fun.
How was your experience with the cast of the show?
It’s a lot of fun. Sushmita ji is a little bit of a riot and she is absolutely eccentric, just like her character. She is unpredictable as an artist. She might throw something at you out of the blue. It’s a lot of fun shooting with her and it’s a learning curve for me as well because she is such a senior artist. Having said that, there is a lot of new energy from Kaajal as she is a little new to the scene. There’s a touch of spontaneity that she has, which I admire because I feel with time, we get very crafty so it’s always good to up-shoulders with a new talent.
So yes, I’m having a ball and at the same time I’m getting to learn.
What did you think about your character and the show when you were approached first?
I’ve been told that it’s the first time in the history of the television industry that Saas is a ghost. So yes, it’s a very unique dramedy. When they pitched me the title, I was completely taken aback. It brought a smile to my face. When I got a creative brief about my character, it was interesting because anyone in this world who has some sort of logic or reasoning will stand-out. It’s not a run of the hill, because sometimes when you do characters in shows where pretty much everyone is colored with the same palette, you get lost. However, here the character was so well descriptive with all the other characters. He is not part of the politics, he is not aware of the ulterior motives, unware of the dynamics between the three or the four women (because there’s a Bua as well). So yes, that’s what excited me and brought me on-board. That’s why I took on the show.
Are you excited to watch the upcoming show?
