Tell us about your character in Kasturi
I am playing Kasturi’s Chacha.. My character has a grey shade, my side of the family is on the grey side, they have a conflict with kasturi’s family. We are trying to disrupt their life, it’s the typical family situation like every Indian joint family.

What about your character and how does your character fit in the whole story track?
Well, my character is still developing, the serial has just started, and yet only the main characters are developing and rest of us are still being introduced, and it will take a while till everything is stabilized. As far as relating to the character is concerned, well, being an actor, I have to relate to him. I myself need to bring in the grey side of mine to play this character. I might not like what my character is doing but as an actor its my responsibility.


What is your ultimate goal as an actor?
There can never be an ultimate goal as an actor. But my ultimate goal is to be a film maker. I have a film ready for production and others are still in the making. With a little more experience as an actor, I’ll try directing.


We’ve heard that you are a acting professor? Is that true?
- Yes, I am teaching Acting at Roshan Taneja’s institute.


What does it mean to be creatively satisfied to you, and have you achieved it so far?
One has to try very hard to be creatively satisfied. When I play a character, I try to get as much satisfaction as I can playing the character. it’s a learning process at the end of the day. I guess, at times you aren’t satisfied with what you’re doing, but then you start experimenting with your character. I’ve done Astitva, Saath Phere, K. Street and I’ve done a good variety of roles. I’ve learned a lot as an actor playing that role.

What’s your dream role?
Something like James Bond.

How is the story going to evolve now with you?
It all depends on the TRP. Story on television keeps changing.

What next?
I’m doing an English play as of now. We are performing in Chennai, there is some theater festival over there.

Well with professional attitude like that and lots of determination, we are sure that Raja will be able to achieve all his goals and dreams. All the best to this talented star on behalf of India-Forums!
