Mumbai, Dec 5 (IANS) Actor Mrinal Dutt, who will be seen as the male lead in TV show "Private Investigator", is bitten by the travel bug. The actor is travelling extensively across India to prepare for his character as a detective.

In the show, Mrinal will be seen as a criminal psychology student named Raffe Roy Chaudhary, who helps inspector Adhekam Tiwari (Vrajesh Hirjee) solve crime cases.

Hence, Mrinal is out to explore the nation to understand the mannerisms and behaviour of people on the advice of Sourabh Ratnu, the man behind the concept of the show.

"It was Sourabh Ratnu's idea who suggested that I travel to different places to observe people. I travelled through local buses, trains, got into coffee shops to observe and to follow people. The objective was to follow people and see what they are up to, which is exactly what Raffe is an expert at," the actor said in a statement.

The Star Plus show will beam Dec 7.

Action leads Neil Bhatt to 'Diya Aur Baati Hum'

Guys often get excited just by the mention of words like guns and action. Actor Neil Bhatt is no different.

The actor, who is seen as cadet Zakir on TV show "Diya Aur Baati Hum", was thrilled to play the character not only because of the script, but as it involved action sequences.

"I was given a chance to work with NCC cadets, army, police people, use weapons and ammunition. I even wore a uniform which is so respectable," Neil told IANS over phone from Mumbai.

"I had to assemble one gun for the scene and I was so excited that I caught hold of a trainer and told him to teach me to assemble the guns ranging from rifles to AK-47," he added.

Neil has also taken inspiration from Hollywood movies.

"I am an avid watcher of Hollywood movies like 'James Bond'. I used to think 'what it must have felt while holding a gun' and pondered 'how would I do the scene'. But now I know that," he said.
