He is one character Fans love to hate. Read on to know what makes Abhaas Mehta tick...

Do fans confuse Abhaas for Shyam...I guess initially they did but not any more. I now get a lot of appreciation from the fans.

Favorite co-star on the set ... Pretty much everyone. But , if I have to name one then it is Akshay Dogra.

If you could have any super power for a day... I would love to teleport. See any place I want!

Your 'Takia-Kalaam' ( Often used phrase ) ...I generally end up saying ' I'll figure it out."

If you were not an actor ...I'd be a fitness trainer !

The biggest mistake of your life
... To give up Lawn Tennis when I had the chance to represent India in U-19 team.

What does your wallet have right now...Money , Visiting cards , some change , credit card and no photos ( Laughs)!

A role that is tailor made for you
...Now that I play Shyam I think I do it quite well. Other wise a dream role would be 'The Joker' in ' Dark Knight'.

Best pick up line used on you...None. I think people find me intimidating. I'd rather learn all this from Shyam.

Favorite season of the year...It is a furnace these days. I need respite - So, has to be Monsoons!

A weakness that is also your strength...I have this constant fear that I might not achieve all that I want to. So , I push myself to work harder!

Your guilty pleasure...I love Pizzas !

Where would you want to be at 50... Let's take this step by step. I 'd want to open my gym before I'm 30 and then may be have a chain of gyms by the time I'm 50.
