Sai Ketan Rao is known for portraying the lead role of Raghav Rao in Star Plus 'Mehndi Hai Rachne Wali'. He was later seen in Star Plus' Chasni' as Raunak Babbar. He is newly observed playing the double lead roles of Agastya Singh Chaudhary and Surya Pratap in Star Plus' prominent serial  'Imlie'.

Upon posing the question about the two different characters and the preparation for them in the show Imlie, he responded, "I initiated in Imlie show as Agastya Singh Chaudhary who is a classy guy with a lot of responsibilities, a straightforward person, who loves taking over the responsibilities of family and someone who respects everyone's options. He is basically emotionally vulnerable. Subsequent to Agastya, I am executing the role of Surya Pratap, who is rugged and a Robinhood kind of police officer. He has his own set of rules, and if justice is denied, he handles the matter personally".

He further adds, "Both the roles are quite different from each other, and I am truly blessed that I got this opportunity to play two different characters in a single show."

 He further mentions that "Television has always had a time constraint factor where the time for preparation is less, but fortunately, I have cracked my code for both the roles and am delivering as promised. Fans are always in awe as I have created two diverse personalities on the screen."

Ketan also adds, "The role of the character of Agastya is quite challenging, especially the dialect, which demands speaking in Hindi. On the flip side, Surya speaks in a rugged South Indian style Hindi. Also, Surya's body language is uncooperative. I am grateful to the makers and the channel, who have trusted me on this  part."

"I  have thoroughly enjoyed playing both the roles simultaneously. I can't pick on any one role as my favourite. So here, both Agastya and Surya are my favourites." states Sai Ketan Rao.

He further contributes by saying, "Yes, I was definitely approached for Big Boss OTT and other reality shows but haven't been keen on doing them as I am currently doing my television show. Probably in the future, I can be a part of some adventurous reality show."

When we further probed about his love life with his co-actor, Sai said, "No, I am not dating anyone. We are just good co-actors and good friends at work. I feel that as an actor, one should focus on work more rather than other deviations."

He further added, " I am firstly thankful to all the viewers who are thoroughly supporting us by watching us daily on screen, and it helps us as actors to deliver much better."

When we inquired about his take on a no-dating clause if it were ever to be added to his contract, he mentioned, " It really won't affect me as a person on any level, as I know I would go on the sets sincerely, do my work passionately, and come back home. On a personal level, I don't believe in dating at the workplace."

Sai Ketan Rao stated, "It would be a wonderful unite, and I think it will again stir up attention among the audience since they loved the chemistry of Shivangi Khedkar and me in 'Mehendi Hai Rachne Wali'. If any such opportunity is given in the future, I would be happy to do the project."

When asked if Agastya and Surya will ever come face to face in the serial 'Imlie', he alluded that, I am not sure if they will ever come face to face, but it might also happen."
