As Sphere Origins' popular show Saraswatichandra has bid adieu, we speak to actor par excellence Gautam Rode who essayed the character of Saras to know about his journey, reeving the highly prestigious award Dadasaheb Phalke and more...
Your journey in the show Saraswatichandra has come to end so what do have to say about it?
Saraswatichandra has been really lucky to me, my journey has been beautiful.
In the shows Lucky and Baa Bahu Aur Baby you essayed a chocolate boy role and in Saraswatichandra it was altogether different, so which one is closer to you ?
Every character has its own specialty and I have loved essaying all the characters. My character in Baa Bahu Aur Baby was humorous and in Saraswatichandra the character had the flavor of emotions, he was serious. If you tell me to pick one character then it would be Saras as I am more attached to that character.
Saraswatichandra has also given you Dadasaheb Phalke Award so can you share that moment?
As I told you that this show has been really lucky to me, it has given a lot to me and I owe it to the show. I have been awarded three times for this show, Indian Telly Awards, Golden Petal Awards and achieving Dadasaheb Phalke Award was a proud moment for me.
Things you have learned throughout your journey while acting?
I think for whichever field we work for a long span time we get to learn many things. Throughout my journey I have improved myself as an actor.
Memories you will cherish of the show Saraswatichandra?
I will miss the show and the entire cast and crew. It's the best thing happened to me, all good things have to come to an end so it finished on a good note and I have no complaints, no regrets.
Since you are active on the social networking sites and have started your own Facebook page so how do you feel connecting with your fans?
Being an actor you have to connect to your fans to know their response and that's how you get encouragement for your work. I like talking to my fans they have always loved and admired me.
Recently you were trending on Twitter on the last day shoot of Saraswatichandra so how was the experience?
Yeah that's true, it was a wonderful experience. It was great to receive so much love and affection from them.
Lastly a message you want to convey to your fans?
I think thanking would be less, keep supporting me for my future endeavors as they have done earlier too.
