You returned onscreen with Pushpa after a long break. Why did you decide to make your comeback on screen with this show specifically?
Working on a good show with a good storyline is always good. I had different plans for my career after my graduation. However, the creatives of Pushpa Impossible informed me that the show's story is based on Patan, a town in North Gujarat. It is similar to me because I belong to Patan, and many of my ancestors have lived there, so the place has a special place in my heart. When I learned about the show's story, I realised that it is something really divine; such coincidences rarely happen, and then I told my mummy about it, and she was very excited. Because the storyline was different, my character was very suitable for me. The character that I am playing is very vibrant and jugadu. It has a different kind of graph; this character has so many elements to play. Hence, when I was offered this show, I decided to take it up.ALSO READ: Urvashi Dholakia returns to Sony SAB's Pushpa Impossible as the righteous lawyer Devi Shekhawat
You've been a part of a Bollywood project too. Did you have any apprehensions about taking up a television show, or did you have any concerns about being typecasted?
I made my Bollywood debut in 2014 with Gunday, where in I essayed the character of Bikram, Ranveer Singh's younger version. That movie and my character were highly appreciated. In fact, even today, if you find a few clips of the film and my performance in the show, there are millions of views on them; it is because people have loved the emotions and the chemistry we portrayed. So my point here is, Bada Parda aur Chota Parda toh bas nazariya hai. It is just about the perception. After all, we have to keep working and give our best. It is more about the storytelling. There is a story where you have to fill in colours with your acting skills. There were no apprehensions as such that I was doing a TV show or something like that. I just wanted to do something meaningful.

You're doing your masters in filmmaking. Do you look forward to getting into filmmaking further?
I firmly believe that destiny has planned something for me. I am doing my masters in filmmaking and have completed my first year in it. I am interested in the environment I am in right now. This may be why my journey to Canada changed, and here I am doing what I love. Before every scene that I perform, I look into the detailing, and the emotions of every other character involved, because I love what I do. I believe in magic, and I do not know what life has planned ahead.
Do you think you've got the recognition you deserve as an actor with Pushpa impossible?
Yes, I got recognition for the show, and I believe I really deserved it. I have been working really hard for the show, and the amount of dedication and patience it takes, It has been my motto. I am proud of working in the corporate sector and still getting into the hearts of people. Once, I had gone to Kokilaben Hospital and there, a 74-year-old lady came to me and enquired about my health. I told her I was fine and that I came for a regular checkup. But the way she showed concern, I was moved. When you get such kind of feedback, you feel really good that with your work, you are able to touch people and their lives.
