I am playing a negative character in Sahara One’s Zaara. It is produced by Benaifa Kohli and it is something I have never done before. Why negative? Well, basically one gets to do a lot more when playing a negative. Now a days, when the story is not the hero, often the leads end up having their character mutilated to sustain the TRPs. But when you are already negative, there is little scope for such mutilation. It can only get better.
Why I picked it up? Right now, it’s a character I liked, so took it up. Though I really don’t know what the story line exactly is going to be later Afteral, you seldom do what you initially signed for at the start of the show.
Acing has become a time pass for most people. There is no passion, and it has become so monotonous that there is no room for creativity or intelligence. It’s all about money. As long as they can hear the jingle, everything is all right in their universe. Quality is the last thing in their priority list, if there at all. They just want people to look good, which is great, but that’s all they want. Whether you can perform or not is not really a matter of concern.
For me, acting has always been a passion, where I can create something, give life to another person who is not really me. But
as an actor, it is difficult to survive in such a mechanical
atmosphere. Making compromises is not easy for those for whom acting is
much more than glycerines, panning the camera and canning the shots.
I can use India Forums as a platform to send a message out there to
anyone who is listening that hey dude, I am here, I love acting. If
it’s an actor you need, take me, but if you need a face, please take
