Which of the characters you played has been closest to your heart?

While every character holds a special place, portraying Sujal Garewal in Kahiin To Hoga was particularly satisfying. Sujal’s depth and emotional journey resonated profoundly with me, making it a memorable and cherished role.

Which role has challenged you the most?

The most demanding role for me was Ambiraj in Porus. Portraying a negative character with intricacies and shades demanded a nuanced approach, pushing me to explore the depths of my acting abilities. I had to train to be like a warrior and learn horse riding, swimming and sword fighting for the role.

What was the experience of acting in Chand Jalne Laga like?

Working on Chand Jalne Laga has been a captivating journey. The show’s unique narrative and intense storyline kept me engaged and invested. The collaborative spirit of the team, coupled with the character dynamics, made this project a fulfilling and enriching experience. I wish I had more time with the show, as it wrapped up sooner than expected.

How would you describe your character in Chand Jalne Laga?

Prakash Singh Rathod, my character in Chand Jalne Laga, had intricate layers and shades. As the stepfather of the lead, Prakash navigated the complexities of being connected to an illegitimate child of his wife, adding a unique dimension to the narrative. As the negative lead, Prakash was enigmatic and unpredictable, contributing to the suspense and intrigue of the storyline.

It’s been an exhilarating challenge to bring Prakash to life on screen.

Working with such esteemed entities would not only broaden my artistic horizons, but also contribute significantly to the vibrant world of television storytelling.

One lesser-known fact about me is my passion for photography and sketching. In the middle of hectic schedules, I find solace in capturing moments through my lens and drawing portraits. This pastime allows me to express my creativity beyond the realm of acting.
