Why did you take up this show?
In 2011 we opened our dance academy it took us one and a half
years to set up our business. I kept getting offers for many roles in between but we didn't
want to do it. I told Tanaaz that we have to be very selective in choosing our roles because we won't do anything and everything that comes across.
We have created a brand name which took us years to create it. So we need to do quality work, I don't want to fall down because of one bad show. When I got this offer of a playing the role of Ronnie who gets angry very fast I was like bang on I want to do this anyhow. It feels great when you get such kind of a role which relates to you because I can't say No to a role where I can work effortlessly. The production guys launched me so I didn't say No to them. I do what they say if they tell me to sit I will sit, if they tell me to stand I will stand. I don't forget my roots, I am very grounded person, I have never spoken about my money.
I think I can't match with today's generation. Thank God!
they have paired me opposite Tanaz for my wife's role because if they would have roped in some
other girl and if she would have thrown tantrums then I would have got pissed in
real life. Agar wo bolegi mera 5 baje
shift khatam hota hai tumko jitna scene lena hei tab tak le lo to meri sach mei
satak jayegi fir. It is a team effort as we have worked in many shows
before, we are working since 20 years so we know how things are. It consumes a
lot of time.
So is this your first fiction show together?
Yes this is our first fiction together. Earlier we have worked together in non-fictions shows like on Sony TV Fame Gurukul, Nach Baliye 2 and then we did Zara Nachke Dikha.
I am very chilled out guy till the time every one is cool with me. The moment you show me an attitude then to Bhaiya ho gaya. But I don't think this will happen because we have each others company, if I do something then Tanaaz is their to sort out things for me. As our business is people oriented I have started understanding how things work. I know how to deal with people diplomatically, now I don't fight with people.
Have ever worked with Sumeet Raghavan before?
I have not worked with Sumeet before but we
have clashed on sets many a times.
We wish you all the best Bakhtiyar for the new show!
