After playing Rockstar Abhi in 'Kumkum Bhagya' for seven years, actor Shabir Ahluwalia has started his new journey as Mohan in 'Pyar Ka Pehla Naam Radha Mohan'.
His character has got many shades and it is quite different from his last role. Mohan is used to playing the flute and has everyone swooning around him, but has somehow lost all his popularity. From being lively to a complete transition as an angry young man, Shabir has got a chance to depict a multilayered character.
He gets candid about his character and explores different mediums from television, OTT to Bollywood. He also shares that he is looking forward to his wife, Kanchi Kaul making a comeback in the entertainment industry.
Beside doing television shows, Shabir also did Bollywood projects such as Shootout at Lokhandwala' and 'Mission Istanbul'. Now, after television shows, is he planning to do more of Bollywood and he replies: "I don't really see the medium. I see what I am doing in that medium, which is really important for me.
"It could be a film, it could be digital, it could be television or audio my approach doesn't change. So, the way I would do a scene for the film is the way I would do it for television vis-a-vis a digital. This is because it's a visual medium, so you cannot cheat by putting only half of your energy in the scene, because it would show."
Shabir's wife Kanchi Kaul is a well-known actress, who later took a break after her marriage and mostly kept herself busy with family. Though now the actor confirms that she is planning to start again.
As he says: "Yes, this year she plans to start again. She has taken a long break because she wanted to be with the kids. I was busy with 'Kumkum Bhagya', so she said I will take care of the kids. Right now, since the kids have grown up and school has begun, she is going to start again. I am really looking forward to seeing her on screen."
How he makes a balance between professional and personal life and he concludes: "If you enjoy doing something, you will find time for it. I enjoy being with my friends and my family. I enjoy playing sports, and I enjoy acting. So, when I enjoy all these things, I will find time somehow."
