Amit Tandon tasted fame and success as a singer in Indian Idol and then as Prithvi of Kaisa Yeh Pyar Hai and Manthan of Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi. Amit now returns to television after a hiatus with Zee’s new serial 'Saath Banaayenge Ek Aashiyaan'. The show will be seen occupying the afternoon slot at 1 pm. The Telly Buzz team caught up with Amit to know more about his new character.
Amit Tandon plays a businessman, a NRI named Abhay. He gives an insight to his character as he says, “ I am an NRI who has just returned to with my wife. The show is all about relationships, generation gaps, the culture clash between people in and NRIs. It revolves mostly round the way we adjust to the Indian lifestyle and adapt ourselves to how our elders want us to live. The role of my wife is essayed by a new actress, Pulika.”
Annotating on his new role, Amit says, “This is a different kind of a role. I had done a negative character in KYPH, and am also anchoring a show on SAB TV called Bolo Yo which focuses on the life of youngsters. And in KSBKBT, I play a very macho guy. In this serial, my character is a goody two shoes with a romantic touch. He is very outspoken and like Prithvi, he does not believe in sacrificing anything in life. Instead, he will stretch himself to get what he wants.”
Though continuing with his acting stint, the hunk is all set to unleash his new music album as he says, “My new album ‘Tanha’ is ready to be launched. I have signed up with TIPS and
will soon be coming out with the promotion of the album. I am hoping that the album
will release by March. Even in this new serial, although I play a businessman, I
will add a flavour of music to it.”
And will the audience see Amit as Manthan on-screen anytime in the near future? “Regarding Manthan”, replies Amit, “I guess it might be a permanent break from the show. I am quite happy with anchoring, my new role in Zee’s serial and my growth as a singer. I just hope my fans support me in all my endeavours and look forward to my new serial and album.”
The singer turned actor has surely come a long way and we hope that he will
continue to remain in the audience’s hearts with his latest ventures.
