Rishabh Jaiswal has successfully managed to woo the audience with his character of Krish Bansal in Rajan Shahi’s “Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai”. Being able to live the life of an actor, which was his dream, acts as the source of his daily encouragement.

He said, “When I came to Mumbai to become an actor, everything was a dream, be it being on the set or shooting, so I don't think I need any motivation to come on set. Even though I was the kind of person who couldn’t wake up early in the morning, now I wake up early, every day, to go on the set of my show and live my dream. I wake up with an inner motivation every day.”

“This is such a big show, with so many beautiful people around. It's a different feeling. Even if I'm partying till late, I still arrive on time the next day for the shoot. So being able to fulfill my dream acts as a driving force for me,” he added.

Rishabh also shared that he is able to connect with his character to a great extent. “There are a lot of things that are actually happening in his life, be it his father telling him what to do in his career, and him wanting to do something else,” he said.

“If we talk about the character graph, the scenes that are shown are pretty emotional, like where he is a little irritated by his father, or his father hits him in front of all the family members, and calls him a loser. So my character is traumatised. I feel every time you play an emotional character, you have to make up your mind and go into that zone where you actually feel it. And if you don't feel it on camera, it shows. Therefore, I give it my 100%,” he added.

Rajan Shahi’s shows are famous for their dance sequences and Rishabh enjoys doing them. He said, “Our show is famous for celebrations and dances and whenever there's any scene/sequence which involves dance, I enjoy it thoroughly. Being a dance enthusiast, I just love such scenes.”

The young actor also expressed his views on how the TV industry is going through a transition phase and giving big competition to OTT and films in terms of the content. He said, “A lot of people have shifted to OTT after the lockdown, they are giving more preference to OTT and movies. As far as TV is concerned, everyone knows that they can watch all the episodes of TV shows on OTT platforms. For example, my show is on StarPlus, but you can also watch it on Disney+Hotstar, even before it airs on TV. That's the benefit and power of OTT, and I think everyone is enjoying it.”

“We get a lot of love from everywhere, and I'm really glad that even in today's time, our show is getting so much love. I'm hopeful that it grows like this for a longer time. We will keep working, whether it's TV or OTT,” Rishabh added.
