You are shooting for another show tell us something about it ?
Yes, I am doing 'Jai Hanuman...'. I started shooting for the show two months back while doing 'Kabhi Kabhie Ittefaq Sey'... This month, on 23rd August, it telecast and I am greatful to almighty for the role as in real life too I am complete devotee of Hanuman ji, so my dialogues comes very naturally..It’s a great show with grandeur, emotion and unseen stories of Hanuman ji.
Is mytho difficult as compared to normal shows ?
Genuinely speaking, it is how you take it... Yes, in my initial days I never went for an audition if it’s a mytho show, because I was so scared of the dialogues which is in pure Hindi, but once it started it become a habit... but yes, I think it is difficult as far as the costume and makeup part is concern, bcoz u need lots of patience to shoot with heavy costumes and getup and sometimes not in the conditions, where you won’t get the comfort of studio.. Taking all of it in consederation, I believe mytho is difficult than normal shows.
Now it’s not a friendship anymore, they are family and as a family we share each and everything, we are there for each other and we meet 4-5 days a week, so its a beautiful bond for a lifetime now... and I think, we have many things in common, which keeps us connected and Debina wants Liana to call me Macha (combination of Mama and Chacha). As Debina is my sister and Guru is my brother.- Romanch Mehta
Have you considered OTT?
Yes I would love to work for OTT, infact I did a short movie which is already on one of the OTT platform and I am very open to work more for OTT and something is still in process so, let’s hope it works out and will give you the good news soon.
We heard you are off on a much deserved holiday soon.Where to?
Yes it’s a long due after COVID. I have never been to any holidays abroad... so I planned it 3 months advance and choose to travel in September... I know it’s a much much deserved holiday so let’s hope all goes well and I create some good and unforgettable memories in this holiday too and so looking forward to this one as a solo traveller.
How much do you think the industry has changed since you started?
It has changed a lot, not just as a technique or with new latest equipments but the working patterns also... even as an actor it has become very natural... With the help of new technologies and editing studios we are creating something for which we use to build big sets, so I think the change is good in every way and we have to change ourselves with times to be in the race and keep going.
Tell us about your friendship with Gurmeet and Debina how far does it go and how deep is it ?
We met during Ramayan days as we were working on the same show and it started from there... and slowly we become good friends and now it’s been almost 14 good years of our friendship...Now it’s not a friendship anymore, they are family and as a family we share each and everything, we are there for each other and we meet 4-5 days a week, so its a beautiful bond for a lifetime now... and I think, we have many things in common, which keeps us connected and Debina wants Liana to call me Macha (combination of Mama and Chacha).
