Niranjan Namjoshi: Dhadkan Zindaggi Kii not a show with a set formula

MUMBAI: Actor Niranjan Namjoshi says Dhadkan Zindaggi Kii, which revolves around the lives of doctors, is not a show with a set formula.

"To begin with, it's not a show with a set formula. It revolves around the lives of doctors, both professional and personal. So the show runs high on emotions at different layers. Any extreme emotion affects your heartbeat first. I can't imagine any better name than Dhadkan," he said.

He is playing Dr. Amin Ali, M.D. Anaesthesia and Intensivist in the show.

"He is an extremely practical a point that he may come across as rude, but he is very sensitive. He has a different way to tackle any problem. He is deeply philosophical. His past, in a way, is responsible for his demeanor, which is revealed later in the show," he shared.

He totally relates to his character. "It's like coming full circle. My father was an M.D Anaesthesia and very 'Amin Ali' like. So I have seen this character from the other side of the table," he said.

The show is based on doctors, so it is thrilling for him as an actor. "It gives a lot of scope to experiment since it's an unconventional show. Plus, we are expected to do surgical procedures, learn the medical terms. The script is supervised by actual doctors, so it's 100% authentic. It's challenging to make all of it a part of your act. But how boring it will be if there are no challenges? I'm loving every bit of it," he said. 

It is produced by Herumb Khot and Nilanjana Purkayasstha. "I have never worked with Nilanjana ma'am. I have never even interacted with her. But I may be the millionth man to say that she is a brilliant writer. Someday I'll tell her personally, hopefully.

"Herumb and I go back a long way. I had acted in a film in 2010 which he had written and directed. We kind of clicked and have been in touch ever since. When he called me for this show, I was more excited to be working together again than the show itself."

The TV industry has evolved in terms of content, and he feels that change is the only constant. "These days, people have options to choose from. Due to lockdown, people were drawn to OTT platforms which exposed them to new content, concepts and it was accepted by most. So why not try it on TV? It'll probably take time but TV may go through a paradigm shift," he said.

As for living in the new normal, he doesn't feel much of a difference. "The biggest ability of a human mind is that it can adapt to anything, anytime. Some adapt quicker than others. I think I was one of the early birds to accept and move on," he said.

Industry for him is God's huge canvas. "I am fortunate that I am chosen to paint a tiny part. It has taught that even the sky is not the limit. There is probably a bigger world beyond the horizon. How far can you push yourself? It has taught me to respect everyone as nothing is possible without teamwork. And most importantly, there is no substitute for hard work," he said.
