As Star Plus’s Raja Ki Aayegi Baraat aims to conquer the hearts of its audience through a rather different tale of a young girl’s dreams of living life like a princess, it also introduces yet another fresh face in the television industry.

My inclination was always towards acting - Kapil Nirmal
Kapil Nirmal or Yudhistir Shishodaya, the royal prince of the show speaks to the Telly Buzz team on his character in the serial as he says, “The character I play in Raja Ki Aayegi Baraat is of Yudhistir Shishodaya who is the prince. He is very simple by nature and completely down to earth. For him, the words of his parents is law and he abides by their every command, but yet deep down in his heart, he wants nothing else but to break free from all the barriers that  royal descent have him chained down to. He just wants to live life normally without any inhibitions and enjoy life in his own way.”

So what is common between Kapil and Yudhistir, the prince? “Not much”, says Kapil, “I relate to my character in only two things. One is that I am very quiet in real life, just like my on-screen character and I am an introvert. I prefer keeping to myself most of the time.”

Kapil was earlier seen in Shakira, a show on Bindaas but the show was pulled off air and he considers himself lucky to have got such a big break in his career as he says,“ Yes, I was previously doing a show called Shakira on Bindaas but it went off air and I am very fortunate to have got such a big break and got the opportunity to work on a channel like Star Plus.”But what compelled a post-graduate in marketing to make a career in acting? Kapil replies, “ I have done my post-graduation in marketing and I did work in the corporate world for almost a year and a half. But I always had an inclination towards acting. While in Jaipur, I even hosted a show for a local channel. My friends and family kept pushing me to try a hand at acting saying I had the talent. Hence I decided to pursue the dream. And it seems to be going pretty well right now. I will just have to wait and watch how the future shapes up.”

Speaking about his future plans, Kapil says, “Right now, I have no other plans or new projects. I plan on concentrating on one show at a time. I’ll just have to wait and see how things work out."
